Perfect for Derby!
Not for a windy day though…. ha, the dress was great. I loved the plunging neckline and the fact that I didn't have to tape it or even fidget with it once. It was so comfortable!

LOVE THIS DRESS
Did not want to give this dress back!! I felt so HAWT, the only thing is it was VERY busty and almost showed too much. Had to duck tape myself in it!

Sexy and Feminine
I felt very sexy and confident in this dress. I got so many compliments on my look. Dress runs small as stated by so many other users, also I had to pin the straps as they were running long.

Super feminine
A little challenging to wear because it does not stretch at all. 8 was too small, and 10's straps were too long and open on the sides. Used tape to hold the ladies up. The dress otherwise was flattering and loved the flouncy skirt. Non-stop compliments! Felt like "Marilyn" herself :)

Elegant yet flirty
Great dress! Runs a bit small in the waist and large in the bust. Had to pin straps to adjust. Got compliments all night. Color is perfect for spring. Very low cut, beware. Would rent again.

The skirt makes this dress so fun! Perfect for dancing
The only con about this dress is the shoulders. They are really large so I had to pin them back even in a smaller size. This dress is so gorgeous! I felt great in it all night long.

Nice dress - not very comfortable.
While the dress was a beautiful color and the fabric was nice, it was not very comfortable. As you can see, the dress has a deep V, so the proper placement of very necessary fashion tape is the key to success here. I'm relatively small on top, so I assumed it would be easier...quite the opposite. The waist cinch was quite tight; I'm normally a 10 in dresses and had to push up to a 12 and it was still abbot snug. Not very comfortable. Last but not least, the swing on the dress is very nice and provides for a great silhouette I paired it with a pair of cork heels and an bold jeweled necklace. Got lots of compliments, but overall not my fav. Wouldn't rent it again.

This dress flows beautifully, gorgeous neckline and soft lemon color.
Size down if you have a small bust, this is a little roomy on top. I wore a 4 because the 2 was unavailable, otherwise a 2 would have fit better. Otherwise a GORGEOUS dress, very comfortable and flattering.

Nice color, bright and summery
I liked the way this dress looked but didn't realize how low cut it was. My boobs were just too big for the dress and I had to tape them up, but still ended up looking pretty revealing. Girls with large chests be careful when ordering this one.

Love this dress!
Great Dress! Very flattering and I received many complements. Skirt is fun and flowy so I didn't have to suck in the whole night - but the torso is tight and makes you look slim! The only con I might give it is that it is very low cut - I felt a little uncomfortable during the ceremony because it was in a church but it didn't bother me at all once I was at the reception! Loved wearing it!

Awesome customer service experience!
My dress was unavailable in my size so I had to choose a different dress. I spoke to customer service on Tuesday and she was going to have it shipped out Wednesday for a delivery by 12pm Thursday cause the wedding was on a Thursday. I hadn't noticed until late that night the email confirmation said delivery Friday! So I had to call back and ask them to change the delivery. They did and guaranteed 12pm delivery. I called again to confirm and customer service said it was only entered as a request. So she helped me and sent the same dress and size along with 4 additional backup dresses to the hotel I was staying at and guaranteed a 12pm delivery. Luckily I was able to go back home and get my dress before the wedding. I loved this dress, however if you are busty like me you need to get good tape!

Danced All Night!
Fit was great! Usually wear a 0 and rented a 0. This is a deep plunge neckline so I went with the advice from a review and bought a uplunge bra. I didn't get the backless strapless uplunge because I knew I'd be dancing all night and was afraid it would sweat off so I went with a normal style nude uplunge bra from Nordstroms and it worked perfectly! I also bought some double sided body tape and used it to secure the neckline to the uplunge and had no issues! The dress was super great to dance in and a beautiful pale yellow! If you are planning on doing a lot of spinning while dancing you should wear full coverage underwear because the skirt does lift and spin with you but it is a gorgeous classy dress and the deep neckline added the perfect touch of sexy! Loved!

Great dress. Great fit. Tons of compliments!
Such a fun dress. Great material. I did wear a smaller size than I am used to, probably because I am a little smaller on top and more hip on the bottom and this dress fits snug around the lower chest area. I did not need double sided tape. Necklace was also from RTR as well.

Adorable but somewhat faulty neckline
Absolutely adored this dress and got so many compliments. While it fit true to size and was comfortable, the V in the neck has a small piece of metal inside to hold the shape which is not stitched in, so kept shifting and coming loose. This caused the shape of the V to warp and i was constantly fiddling with it to fix it. However i don't think it was all that noticeable, and my boyfriend already asked me to rent it again for another event we're going to!

Beautiful color!
I loved the color of this dress. It was perfect for a summer wedding! The plunging neck line was a little out of my comfort zone, but the dress was so fun. The skirt was perfect for dancing the night away! The only thing I didn't love about the fit was how tight the rib cage/chest area was - I almost felt like my chest was being flattened. Overall, I enjoyed wearing this dress!

Beautiful dress for a wedding
Fit is true to size. I am only 5' so it was a bit longer which was a good thing. The only issue if you are busty, the plunge may be a little much for you. I felt like I was showing a little too much cleavage. Other than that, it's a beautiful dress, very nice feel, and you will get many compliments.

Sweet little number for a bridal shower.
I loved this dress. the neckline is very low. I had to take up the dress at the shoulders about a inch. I'm 5'4 and short waisted. But I got loads of compliments on it. My sis is also wearing a RTR dress as well. Love RTR!!!!

Lovely Dress
This was my first RTR dress and I'm hooked! The dress was flattering and the fit was perfect! I took two pics to showcase the color but my lighting is bad, it's a really pretty soft yellow. Material was expensive not flimsy so my boyfriend was able to spin me around the dance floor without exposing anything since it has good fabric weight..I hope that makes sense. Dress is lined, never showed my bra color or panty lines. Highly Recommend!

This dress was great, received tons of compliments. Order a size 12 but got the back up size 10, which was a much better fit for my shape. LOVED THIS DRESS !!

Figure Flattering!
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to wear this because it was too large in the upper torso. I am petite, only 5'2", and I found that there was too much extra material. This would probably work perfectly for anyone > 5'3".

Fun and flirty
Gorgeous dress fit true to size, and I didn't need my extra size up. Lovely butter yellow color was easy and flattering to wear even though yellow is sometimes hard with my skin tone. It is also definitely far enough from white to be a great late summer wedding guest dress. I have broad shoulders so the top of the dress fit perfectly, and I had no issue with the straps being too long at all. I wore a deep U front bra from Victoria's Secret and didn't even need to use double sided tape in the front. If I had worn a normal plunge bra, double sided tape would have been needed to avoid showing in the front because the plunge is so dramatic. My under garments were black, btw, but with the quality lining on this dress, there was no show through at all. I've now worn this Allison Parris dress in both red and yellow, and I just love it. Now I'm looking for an occasion to wear the purple version ;-)

Perfect dress!
Beautiful dress! The color was perfect for a late summer wedding and it really accentuates the waist. I didn't have an issue going braless but your cleavage is definitely out there. Would recommend for hourglass figures.

I loved this dress, I received many compliments on it. Make sure you have some body tape though :-) I'm usually a 4 and the 4 fit perfectly! I paired it with a floral scarf since it was a bit chilly at night still (the wedding was in early May).

I received compliments on this dress all night, I am so glad I wore it. I was initially concerned due to the light yellow at a wedding, however it looked great. Definitely use fashion tape to accommodate the deep v.

The dress was great! Lots of compliments.
Overall I loved this dress, and I'd order it again! I am thankful that I ordered a size 2 because it is a true 2 waist and the top is a little big - typically I am a 4. The dress was also pretty comfortable and just the right length if you're a little taller like me (5'8"-5'9). The only downside was that the zipper did not want to stay up so I had someone on zipper duty to keep me in check.

CONS:Big Bust & Small Waist / PROS: Color & Style
After an unsuccessful rental for my Kentucky Derby themed bridal shower, RTR sent this dress as my replacement. Although the bust was oversized even for me and the waist line was extremely small and disproportionate - the style and color are breathtaking! Watch out for the cut and sizing.

i was worried this would be too white for a wedding but it was a perfect light yellow. I'm usually either a 6 or an 8 but I wore the 6 and it fit like a glove. compliments all night!

Great color- cute shape!
This was a very pretty dress. I rented it for my birthday party which had a Catalina wine mixer theme. I'm normally a size 4 (sometimes a size 6 due to a pear shaped body)- however the 4 of this dress had too much space in the bust area, and with the deep V, I was afraid it might cause too much of a show. So I stuffed myself into the 2, which fit...but not comfortably. It was very tight around my waist (which is expected since I'm not normally a size 2). It's a beautiful dress, just be weary if you're small chested.

It was a fairly easy process. Customer service was wonderful and fast!
The dress runs small!! It has a beautiful cut and fits most body types. However, if you are blessed with a large chest make sure you get some boob tape! Unfortunately, the dress is not so forgiven in the chest area. I felt somewhat exposed at times. But all in all the dress looked great and I got a lot of compliments on it.

Obsessed with this dress!
I ordered an 8 and a 6 in this dress for my sons baptism. I needed a church friendly, but breastfeeding friendly outfit that didnt feel matronly. This dress was perfect! Very revealing which Im not used to but beautiful. The size 8 which I thought was my usual size was too big on top. The 6 is what I wore but it was TIGHT. Once I ate my meal, I felt like it was going to burst, but it never LOOKED too tight. Very flattering cut- and I got compliments all day!
