Fits nicely but VERY low. I didn't wear it because it was so low.

Didn't fit my body properly, much too cleveage. Not flattering fit. Seemed baggy and too tight at the same time.

The fit, color, style is amazing. I received so many compliments.
The fit of this dress was amazing. I wore a push up bra to accent the v-neck of the dress. The length was perfect as I am tall so most dresses are short on me. The flowing shirt was so fun to dance in. I wish I owned this dress!

Great color and material. Felt like a movie star.
I wear either 4 and a 6 with athletic body type. I was 6 in this dress. Cleavage is a little tricky as the regular bra seemed a bit much for a wedding.

Beautiful dress. Very lovely fabric+color. Seemed to f it and flare in all the right places. The neckline though is VERY low. It wasn't easy finding a cami that looked good under it. Overall, a pretty piece.

I felt very comfortable in this dress. The length was perfect for my height. The dress is snug at the top so if you are busty go up a size.

This dress was light and airy - perfect for an outdoor spring wedding.
I really loved the fit of this dress, and I had a ton of fun dancing the night away with the full and flowy skirt. I was very sad when I had to return this dress! The deep V was a little annoying because 1) the metal part that creates the actual V kept sliding up so I had to keep pushing it down, and 2) my bra kept peeking out, but that's easily solved with a different bra. It also probably wouldn't be a problem for larger chested women.

This dress is exactly what I needed at 4 months pregnant, it made me feel gorgeous, especially with all the compliments I received. I would have kept it forever if I were allowed. It fell perfectly and fit true to size (I have the tiniest bump) I got compliments from everyone. Highly recommend this dress.

Pretty dress, but made for a skinny build, not athletic. The fit was awkward.
Poor fit...didn't wear this dress or the other one I ordered for another event. I wish athletic fit was a sizing type. Not everyone wants to be or is skinny.

Didn't end up wearing it
This dress fit very strangely on me- the armpit holes gaped weirdly. I also found the material to be not of the best quality- it looked a little worn. I forgot to get a picture as I was too stressed about getting another dress! Don't worry, in the end I was able to get a dress that I loved.

This dress was beautiful in both color and fabric. I got compliments all night!!
The mid section was tight compared to how loose the straps were, so I was checking for gaping to make sure my bra wasn't showing all night. Other than that I loved it.

Great color- weird fit
The color of this dress is beautiful- it's comfortable on and would be great to dance in all night. It had a very odd fit in the bust area. I'm a C cup and filled out the front of the dress fine- but there was a weird gapping at the armpit area. I wonder if the 4 would've done the same- but this was my back up dress so I only ordered one size.

This is a beautiful dress!
This dress is so, so pretty in person! I thought it was very slimming and such a fun hemline. Now for the cons, I threw a push up bra on right before we left, not realizing quite how revealing the dress was. I was a little uncomfortable when I realized how 'out there' I was. Also, the dress maintains it's 'v' at the neckline through a metal wire. The stitching inside of the dress must have come undone, I had to fix it all night long as it looked very off at times. While I loved the dress, due to this, I'm not sure I would rent it again due to the metal issue.

I had two weddings in one day and wanted a dress I felt could transition from day to night.
I loved the color of this dress and the flow of the skirt. The waist of the skirt is true to size, but the top is not very forgiving if you have a larger chest (I'm 5'7", 32E). I wore the dress anyway, but felt a little self-conscious about the deep-v. However, if you are comfortable with cleavage then this dress is perfect. I'd rent it again, in a 6, for an event other than a family wedding.

Loved the color and the flow of the dress.
The overall fit was great. The dress is very low cut in the front. I usually wear an 8 and this 8 was big around the armpits area. I would rent it again!

I received a lot of compliments about the color and cut of the dress.
If you are top heavy, make sure you find a way to cinch the dress with a belt to help bring up the top a little. I found that the straps were too long. Hence the gold belt. I was told that I looked like I was about to go on dancing with the stars. Pretty funny but it was a perfect color and dress. I wish I could afford $350 to keep it for myself. My favorite dress I've rented thus far on RTR. Great for summer events!! Light material.

I did not end up wearing it. Did not like the fit in either size 2 or 4.
Size 2 fit, but the neckline was too revealing, I have a full bust, so it did not look classy. I tried the following size but it didn't fit any better than the first. Not impressed at all. I sent it back. The cut of the neckline would fit someone who's chest is more on the petite side.

Loved this dress but it didn't fit my top!
I normally wear a size 6 or 8 in dresses, which are the 2 sizes that I ordered. The 8 fit but was way too tight in the chest area. I wear a 36C bra which isn't giant but with this dress on I felt like I was pouring out. If I had the 10 I probably would have been fine. Sadly, I didn't have time to get another size and just returned the dress. Otherwise, the color is gorgeous and the flowing skirt is really comfortable. This is definitely a perfect and unique wedding/event dress.

Fun, flirty dress - was extremely comfortable and fun to dance in.
Seems to run a size larger - make sure you order your backup one size DOWN. Only issue I had was with the deep V neck. Had some gaping problems so my bra kept showing. There may have been a problem with the metal insert in the V as it did seem to pull to one side and create a small horizontal crease in the fabric. I wore simple jewelry and nude heels - the wedding had a country chic theme so I didn't want to "glam" it up too much :) I did wear a scarf to cover the plunging neckline while at the church ceremony :)

Made for a great anniversary dress! Waist band has no stretch but fabric and fit were comfortable
Rented this for my anniversary and got so many compliments! The waist band had no stretch so if you are bigger in the rib cage or plan to eat/dance a lot I would size up. The deep V worked well for me because I'm small chested but needed tape to keep from gaping (again, small chested). Overall it made for a great date night dress but the no waist give could be uncomfortable after a while.

Stylist Review!!
Great dress but tricky fit! The color of this dress is vibrant and perfect for a spring or summer event. I wore my true size 4 and it fit, but I would have preferred to wear a padded bra to fill out the bust area (I'm usually a 34B). The waist is definitely snug, but the full skirt allows for comfortable room in the hips. If you have a big bust (D and fuller), judging by other customer reviews I recommend sizing up in your back up size. Also - there is a small metal wire in the neckline to keep the deep v shape. It did not bother me, but I was surprised to find that detail.

Gorgeous color, beautiful fabric, snug-fitting but not restrictive!
This dress was beautiful. The fabric draped perfectly and worked very well for a girl with a bigger bust like me. My only complaint was that my dress was missing the small wire at the bottom of the v in the neckline that was supposed to give it a little structure, so I ended up having my cleavage popping out all evening.

Great color but very weird fit
Trust the reviews. Unless you are extremely broad chested I would avoid this dress. The armpits flap open, the straps are extremely long, and yet it manages to smash your chest down like a sports bra. I don't recommend!

So sassy and fun!
I loved this dress. The color is amazing and it flows beautifully. It did run a little larger than I had anticipated from reading the reviews, and the wire thing that makes the deep V kept moving around, making the line around the bust look a little awkward. Additionally, I probably should've steamed it before the wedding, as it looked a little wrinkled in photos. Overall, it was beautiful and I would rent it again!

unfortunately i did not wear this dress because the size 8 was not available, they sent the 10 and another dress, the 10 was big so the 8 probably would have fit perfectly! i will try it for another occasion because the dress is beautiful and well made!

Ended up not wearing
I think this would have looked cuter on me if I were a bit skinnier...it really didn't do any favors for me. I felt so frumpy in it; my husband didn't like it and neither did two of my girlfriends. Plus there is a lot of cleavage that goes on in this dress. Thankfully I had brought a cute black dress that I already owned that I ended up wearing that night

Great color!
The cut was very revealing in the front and difficult to wear a bra with. The 6 was a lot bigger in the bust area and the 4 wasn't big enough. The fabric feels great, but anything wet that touches it leaves a dark mark. I had tons of compliments, but wouldn't rent it again.

Great flowing skirt and lightweight with a flattering silhouette.
Like others mention, the waist is pretty tight (the 8 fit but it was... Quite fitted) and the chest could definitely flatten you out (I wore a lightly padded bra to counteract that). The skirt is well draped and very flattering. There is a metal piece that forms the v at the chest which kept shifting (annoying), but for one night it was doable. Got lots of compliments! Pretty dress if you can find a fit in the waist.

Pretty but the fit is not right
I ordered this dress in a size 4 (my usual size) and although I could technically wear it, the deep V in the front made my breasts show a lot through that opening in the middle. I ended up not wearing it because I felt too uncomfortable. I am a 34 C and it was showing way too much in a size 4. What adds to the problem is that the dress has a ribbon that tightens right below your breasts, making them show even more. If you like flaunting that asset, maybe this is a good dress for you. Otherwise this deep v might be too revealing.

Dance the night away!
Loved this dress! We danced all night and received so many complements on this dress and the way it moves when you spin around! I was able to wear a normal bra because I had a deep cut bra, it still would show every now and then, I would go bra less if I rented it again! Loved it and would for sure rent it again!

this dress was INCREDIBLE!!! I got a lot of compliments on it.
pro: BEAUTIFUL dress and i loved the flowyness on the dance floor. con (maybe): the top fits a little odd, and i couldn't wear a bra with this dress (which is why this is a maybe, bras suck). it actually looked better without the bra anyway, but i'm a 32D and i feel like no bra leave the ladies a little too free.

Gorgeous dress, not for those with a large chest
This is a gorgeous dress--the color, skirt and shape are all lovely--but there were two major problems 1)I have a large chest but figured that if there was too much cleavage/ it was too low cut I could wear a cami underneath, However there is this awful metal V inside the dress at the bottom Of the V, on a large bust it bulges out and doesn't allow the top to fall correctly 2) the arm holes in the front of the dress were very baggy, it may lay better on someone else but they were extremely ill fitting on me and needed to be seriously tailored of the dress were to be worn. I was hoping to wear This dress as something fun flirty and bright for graduation, but i had to return it. The top was completely off and funny looking on me

Dance like EVERYONE is watching in this dress!
Super pretty dress. It fits snug in the waist but the neckline is quite loose. I spent a good majority of the night readjusting the straps to hide my bra. But with pins or some fashion tape it should be fine. The dress moves beautifully! I'm a ballroom dancer, and wore it to a wedding of a dancing couple- so there was plenty of dancing involved!

I loved this dress! The color was eye popping and the flowy skirt was a hit on the dance floor.
It's definitely going to show a lot of cleavage if you've got it. I would highly recommend some good fashion tape. Otherwise it's a stunner and I got tons of compliments!
