Holy low cut front
If it came in a petite size it would have probably worked, the top straps were just a tad too long which made the front plunge that much more revealing. Post baby boobs just didn't work in the dress if you know what I mean ;-P loved the color and design, really wanted it to work but had to call RTR to overnight another style (which was an amazing experience BTW)

Great dress!
This dress looked great and I received many compliments. The only drawbacks are that for a short person this dress is essentially floor length and the straps were way too big. I had to carry the train of the dress when I walked. I didn't have a dancing event but if I did this dress would've made it difficult only because it is so long. Other than that, the dress fit nicely and hid my problem areas very well. I would rent it again in the shorter version offered.

The waist was a little tight on me, and I am pretty tall and didn't need a long.

Runs big
The dress was beautiful but huge in the chest. It ran big all in the stomach area too. Need to be busty to pull this one off.

Lots of compliments especially with necklace.
Pros: Fun flowy skirt. Heels made the trail the right height. Flattering to large breasted women. Cons: Torso part was too big, while the waist band was too small. My originally plan 6R went to the 4R because the sleeves would slip. Waist band didn't differ between 6R and 4R much. Tight squeeze for 29in! In conclusion: Excellent for regular size women, but be cautious with this option if petite.

Felt like a princess!
I was originally supposed to get this dress in the Cobalt blue color, but found out at the last minute it wasn't available, so I got the coral one instead. The color was perfect for engagement photos and the long length worked great with my 5'11" legs. Highly recommend this dress! The cut is a little low and I was a little tight in the bust area, so if you're busty keep that in mind and go a size up.

Beautiful dress!
This dress is absolutely beautiful -- even more in person. It was much too large for me, so I had to wear a different dress, but I am in love with the cut. I will absolutely be ordering this dress in a smaller size for my next event.

I received so many compliments on this dress! I wore it to a wedding and loved the color.
I'm very busty (38D), so I used a cream colored bandeau to cover the girls since this was a pretty traditional/church wedding. The high low cut of the bottom was very flattering, even for a short girl like myself. Looked formal without being stuffy. I wore 4 inch wedges for the occasion, but even without the shoes, the length was still great! The inside was lined with silk which kept it from being static and too hot. I wore this on a day where it was 110 degrees outside with humidity and was still comfortable - and it didn't show sweat marks. I normally wear a 14, so a 14WR was a little bigger than I was used to but the 12 would have been too tight around the chest. Highly recommend for a summer wedding!

Too revealing for a wedding
I thought the color and fabric was beautiful so I was so excited when I got this. However, the cut in the breast area was too revealing and just did not work with my boobs. I felt that the cleavage was too much for a formal wedding and when I sat down, my nipples came out! I tried different bras and boob tape and even gaffers tape. My boobs were just too soft and you could see the sag line. It was just not for me. I envied those who managed to have a good fit for their events and looked gorgeous in their photos!

Lives up to the Marilyn name!
Fit well, definitely a little tight around the waist, but I figured I could take it in the name of glamour. The V-neck is much lower on me than shown in the photo-- I couldn't wear any of my bras (even though there is fantastic coverage elsewhere for the straps), and even my stick-on cups showed in the cleavage. You COULD wear this without a bra, but you'd have to be really comfortable with rocking the totally flat look. I plan to go out and buy one of those "deep plunge" bras or experiment with tape in order to wear this one.

Beautiful quality dress
In initially ordered this dress in the cobalt but a last minute issue prevented RTR from sending my preferred size. They were very helpful in replacing the cobalt dress with 2 other selections that I ultimately did not care for, but additionally overnighted the coral version of the cobalt dress. This dress is very pretty, good solid weight, and felt good on. It was snug enough that I did not feel the need for a bra but it is quite low cut. Also, snugness being a plus while standing was a little uncomfortable to sit in for an extended period but nothing major. I did love this dress and felt beautiful in it.

The perfect pink semi-formal dress!
I wore this for a women's health charity event that had some formal outfits, some cocktail outfits, so I tried to go middle-of-the-road and this was PERFECT. The fabric, surprisingly, is really light and much more casual than I thought. There's no stretch but there's definitely room to move. I fit PERFECTLY in the 8R and it was pretty true to size. Also, I am a 34DD and the chest fit perfectly. (and flattered the heck out of me up top!) Also comes with pockets and is super bra friendly - what more could you ask for? The only thing that seemed somewhat odd was the hi/lo wasn't as high in the front as the picture indicates. Winter this summer color up with black and gold shoes/accessories.

Drop dead gorgeous
The pictures just don't do this dress justice. It was so beautiful and such a good fit for me. I ended up wearing the 2 because the zipper on the 4 wasn't a hidden one. I made the right choice. This dress is very flowing and such an amazing fabric.

So many compliments!
This dress is spectacular! Please rent it!!! I loved the length, and cut. I am 5'5"and wore 3 inch heels. The dress grazed the floor brilliantly while I twirled and danced the night away. Also, the pockets were so unbelievably convenient. I didn't even take a bag!!! Lastly, the low cut was sexy, but very classy. I received so many compliments! 💜 The only thing I'd highly recommend is at the very least get a backup size larger than what you usually wear. I'm 5'5", 127lbs, 34-A cup size, athletic build, and fit into a 6. The 4 (my normal size) was definitely too tight.

Beautiful dress, but top runs so big and long
I am short waisted with long legs and often really need a dress that I can shorten the straps, but this was just enormous. the top was so big, did not end up wearing. Pros: Dress really is beautiful. the coral color is flattering to all colorings. Would love to try to rent this again in a size smaller, in petite if they have it.

Very low
The dress is a beautiful fabric- very elegant looking but you could pull it off for an evening summer wedding too. The bust was very low-cut, but the empire waist was quite tight, so I ended up wearing the bigger size in the interest of being able to dance. That was a mistake. I felt like I was flashing people all night. I think this particular dress was stretched out in the bust; I wouldn't worry about it in the future but def order two sizes and get some fashion tape to prevent your bra from showing. The color, fabric and ability to accessorize made me rate this dress highly.

It has pockets! - very boobish
Very pretty color and dress. I wore it to a gala in the spring. It has pockets, my fave! This dress is super flattering. It is a high and low style, and in the front the high is just high enough to show your shoes but I'm 5'2.5. It is a fairly low cut. It may super revealing if you are on the bigger top size. I am a B and they were out there. My only issue with this particular dress, is a metal "v" that sits in the very front of the cut of the cleavage. It had fallen out, and was dancing inside the liner of the dress all evening. It was visible to people around me. I have to strategically place it towards the back and secure it with a pin so you don't see it.

The fit throughout the body was nice but the bust area was a little snug which made my girls feel a little squished but it does say in the description it is good for up to a c cup and I'm a D!! The color is gorgeous!

Loved this dress!
So I am very tall and have a bigger body all the way around. This dress definitely lets the girls hang out if you know what I mean! I would say the only bad thing about this dress is when you sit down it shows your bra. For me I can't really use the stickers or bras of that type because I am a DD. Other than that the fit and style of this dress is amazing. I got a regular because they didn't have any longs available and I'm happy I did because this dress style was almost better not reaching the ground.

Not the best photo however the dress overall is very beautiful and the quality is there.
Not the best photo however the dress overall is very beautiful and the quality is there. The only one concern is that just like all the reviews stated prior, the top part of the dress runs extremely large. I wore a belt to cinch the waist and pulled down the top to give it an illusion that that that's how its supposed to be. I would size down if I rent this one again.

Beautiful Dress, Buxom Top
I usually wear a size 16 R. This was my back up size, but it ran quite large in the bust. I would say that the 18 R may be more in line with a woman who has a DD bust. I could have work it with some dress tape, but my C cup made that a bit dicey. Would rent again at my size or below.

I didn't love it. But literally everyone else did
Compliments galore on the way this dress looked and moved. I was surprised because I wasn't a huge fan of it initially. The material was heavier than I expected and not silky or fine like it looked in pictures. Once on it was surprisingly flattering and after an evening full of compliments the dress grew on me. Not my fave dress by far but I would wear it again.

It hung beautifully, even though I was a bit too short for the dress. The dress trailed behind me just a bit, but it wasn't bad and made me feel a bit elegant. Overall, I loved this dress and it made my night spectacular!

Wonderful dress but too big to wear :(
This dress was absolutely amazing!! The fabric was sleek, soft, and heavy. The flow of the dress was beautiful and we all know everything is better with pockets!! Unfortunately, I'm a bigger person (size 14) with c cups. As much as I wanted to, I wasn't able to wear this dress because it was just too big in the chest. I tried the trick some other girl showed here - using a necklace as a sort of clasp for the too big bust of the dress - but it wasn't enough for me. I am very sad because I would've ROCKED this dress. So, if you're like me with a big body and boobs that haven't gotten on board with the the rest of the bod, then stay clear of this one. But if you think your body type will work in it then DEFINITELY order it bc you will NOT be disappointed.

Unforgettable dress
This dress is beautiful. The fabric is wrinkle-free, comfortable and flattering. I got an unbelievable amount of compliments on this dress! The dress does run large and being a 38C, the top was way too big. I have a feeling if I had sized down, it would have been ok. But with a little fabric tape, it worked great for the evening. Without heels it was a bit long in the back for me only being 5'5". I will definitely rent this dress again! The pockets were a major plus

Mexico wedding matron of honor dress.
Needed a fancy yet beachy coral dress for my sisters Mexico wedding. I've ordered off the app many times but waited too long and had to hit up the store. I was so lucky to find this gem. It was absolutely perfect. The Chicago store could not have been more helpful. Another wonderful experience with RTR.

The top is awkward in the way that it lays. I was uncomfortable with the puckering near the cleavage area. The skirt part is amazing, so full and fun. It was shame that the top was so strange.

Beautiful dress with a beautiful cut. Not ideal for heavy bust women. got many compliments!
The fit was very tight across my bust area. Although not very noticeable, my "girls" were mashed down the entire evening. Made it very uncomfortable at first because I was afraid I would rip the dress. The length was just right. Overall, I loved this dress and the pockets! The pockets were handy to keep up with cellphones and keys.

Fun to twirl in AND it has pockets!
I loved this dress! The pockets were an amazing surprise, as I could carry my lipstick and iPhone 6 Plus. It was a blast to dance in and twirl! I'm 5'4 and 125 lbs and have some larger boobs. The only reason I'm giving this dress 4 stars is because it was slightly small in the chest area and gave the "pancake" boob from a side view. The length was great with some heels for me and I'm on the shorter side.

I got so many compliments on this dress.
I am ~5'11 and got the LONG version and it was pretty long, granted I did not wear heels. I probably could've worn just the regular. The back of the dress was brushing the floor. Other than that, it was perfect!

Glamorous at the Gala
My first thought when I took the dress out was-- Oh no, I look like a bridesmaid! I was really unsure of wearing it, because the style is completely different from anything I've ever worn. The size 2 fit perfectly, but I'm a 32DD, so if you have a small chest you probably won't fill it out. It is very low cut as well, so you'll need a deep-plunge bra. Luckily I already owned one! I wore it to a Gala, and felt so glamorous in it. Yes, it has pockets, but I didn't use them for anything. The material is very heavy, which would probably be my only complaint. I was expecting a much lighter feel, but it still looked great. As always, I received many compliments throughout the night... so I ended up loving the dress.

This dress is perfection!!!
I wore the dress to a Breast Cancer Gala, it was perfect in every way. I received so many compliments on the fit and color. The plunge neckline took a little time to get used to but with double sided tape it wasn't a problem at all. I absolutely loved it, and would rent again for a different event.

The color and shape was perfect!
The fit in the waist was perfect! A little snug but once my spanx were in place it was perfect! The top wasn't too low cut but the sides stuck out a bit too much! I took it under my own styling and used a choker so it would fit just right! (Looped it under the straps and fastened!) it looked great and I felt like a princess!! The color is perfect for someone with fair skin and the length was VERY flattering!

I felt like a queen.
I was a guest at a wedding held at the Four Seasons Biltmore Hotel in Santa Barbra, CA...so obviously my dress had to be fancy. I heard about this site from the bride! I chose this particular dress because of the style and the fact that it came in my size; the reviews were so true! Everyone rated it very well (who had it in my size) so I felt more comfortable ordering it. Overall, the dress was a hit. The waist line fit perfectly. However, my chest did not fit the dress at all, so we did have to tack it a bit. The dress is a bit low cut, but if you wear the right bra (push up razor back bra - Victoria Secret) then it should fit perfectly. I totally recommend this dress! It was wonderful and I felt great wearing it; especially after all of the compliments.

Stunning dress but noenideal for large chest...
I was obsessed with this dress despite some wardrobe malfunctioms where my cleveage got a bit out of control. Got dozena of compliments all evening. I tried thr 8 and it fit beautifull EXCEPT for the bust - the cut of thebdress had an awkward small bust so 34D didnt look too great. Moved up to a 10 so the waist of thebdress was large but at lwast the girls fit comfortably (still VERY busty).
