Loved the butter yellow color!! Very fun to twirl in
The dress was very futted right under the bust and across the bust for me. The no stretch in that area caused me to need 3 sizes bigger than I typically wear. It was big around the hips but fit nicely around the bust. I will say that this dress is verrrrry low cut, and if you are planning on wearing it without a tank underneath it you better be ready to be very exposed or have a flat chest to pull it off. My fiancé almost fainted when I tried it on that way :) my 38ddd made it a bit too provocative looking --- luckily, a little black cami turned it all around!! I loved this dress. It is very flattering and the sleeves are very unique and fun! The dress spins when you twirl and dance; soooo much fun!!! Lots of compliments on the dress!!

Perfect birthday dress!
The fit was great! The dress revealed a lot of cleavage, but in a tasteful way. It was so much fun to wear! The neck is deep though, so it takes a bra with a pretty low plunge. Loved this dress!! #marilynmonroe

Great color!
Loved this dress overall. I have a short torso so it didn't fit my shoulders well (made for someone taller) but the length was perfect and it was very comfortable. I received lots of compliments! I probably should have worn fashion tape but was dancing all night and didn't have any mishaps. Would definitely rent again!

Gorgeous Dress!
It fit perfectly, however it's a little tight around the waist so size up if your waist isn't very defined

Cute & Flirty and Flattering
I ordered a 10 and it was tight on the rib cage and the 12 was more fitting. It was a little low cut but not too revealing! It shows off your legs nicely and very comfortable. I received lots of compliments and love the canary yellow.

Beautiful dress to wear in a beautiful place to celebrate my 30th!
Loved this dress! Took it with me on vacation. I tried on the 8 and the 6. The 8 was loose fitting in the top but the 6 fit great!

Dress flows so well! Felt pretty in it.
I rented this dress for an engagement photo session! It was a little loose around my waist (not stretchy fabric) and I wasn't a huge fan of how booby it was. I have big boobs so it kind of smoothed them down and with the deep-V it made them look dragged down... But the fabric was light and thin without being see-through and the skirt flowed so nicely!

Loved the color and the style.
I had to size up for this dress. The waist was smaller than normal. The neckline was deeper than the picture but did stay in place pretty well. I did use fashion tape to make sure not to have any wardrobe malfunctions. Loved the color and the style and was pleased overall with this dress.

Great color and fit
Kind of revealing in the chest area, can't wear a bra with it but you can wear pasties. If you're large chested I wouldn't rent it. Flows away from troublesome low belly area

Absolutely loved this dress! Wore to a Kentucky Derby themed fundraiser, so many compliments!!
This dress fit me perfectly!! Loved the color, the dress hugged my body in all the right places. Plunging front revealed the right amount and I was able to wear a bra with this dress (unlike some of the other reviews regarding this dress). I want to buy this dress!! Highly recommend! Thank you RTR!!

Not for people with big boobs!
This dress is absolutely beautiful. It is such a beautiful pale yellow but it's definitely not a dress for those who have bigger boobs. It's very tight in the chest/rib cage area for those have more in that area. Just keep that in mind when renting this!

Derby party SUCCEESS!!!
I rented this dress for a Derby party, and it did not let me down!! The fit of this dress was perfect! I'm usually a 6, and the 6 fit flawlessly. The style of the dress was perfect for a gal with smaller breasts since the cut was quite low. I did not want to send this one back, I will for sure rent again!

Perfect for a derby party!
Like others have mentioned, it is very tight in the ribcage. The fabric is nice and thick but has no stretch. The neckline is very low but a little fashion tape kept me in place and I didn't need to wear a bra.

I felt like Marilyn.
If you are a bustier girl like myself, do yourself a favor and rent a size bigger than you usually wear. This dress was absolutely stunning and all night I got compliment after compliment and people kept telling me I looked like Marilyn Monroe which only made me love the dress more! :)

It was a beautiful dress and I got tons of compliments.
The fit was perfect. I have a big bust and it was a good fit. Not sure how it would fit on someone with a smaller chest. Perfect length. I wore it to my engagement party turn surprise wedding.

So flattering
I got this dress for a wedding and I loved it!! I actually didn't end up wearing it though because I thought it was too booby and might be inappropriate. I will definitely order it again for a different event because it was a gorgeous color and SO flattering!!!

Great Derby dress!
Lent to a friend to wear to the Kentucky derby. Super cute yellow dress that zips down the back. Didn't love the v cut, it was too high and cut her off at the chest. Yellow is very pale.

perfect
Fits true to size, but wouldn't have minded it a little bit tighter. As a very pale blonde, I was nervous about the color, but it was beautiful especially with my gown! Low cut, but even for a school event I didn't need tape. Would definitely recommend!!!

Deep V
This dress was so much fun to wear! I feel like you have to pretty confident to wear this dress or at least be comfortable in having that much cleave out. I wear a 36 DD & my tip for everyone interested in this dress: duct tape. I DIDNOT wear a bar, instead I used duct tape to support the fun bags and double sided scotch tape to prevent a nip slip! PROS: Girls are on display! Hides tummy. Skirt was very fun to dance in!! CONS: Girls are on display. Straps were kind of big? There was extra material on the sides. For me, double sided scotch tape nipped it in a bud!

Amazing shape and color
This was such a fun dress to wear and I got so many compliments at a friends' wedding! Only complaint is that is is VERY low cut so if you have a full bust be careful or it might end until looking inappropriate. I was worried throughout the night that my bra would show.

Perfect dancing dress!
I received so many compliments on this dress!! I was a little worried about the neckline as I am a 34D but wore sans bra and felt more comfortable with the look. The length of this dress really helps to balance the neckline. I'm a cleavage or leg, never both, type of gal. But really amazing dress! Great light yellow color and that skirt was made for twirling!!

Absolutely gorgeous dress!
I received compliments on this dress all night! The top (chest/shoulder area) was a little loose bc I'm small busted so I went with size 0. I felt sexy and chic in this dress and loved the way it looked when I twirled around!

Jaw-dropping!
I'm middle-of-the-pack chesty, and wanted to wear the structured sticky boobs from VS with the super low scoop meant for dresses like this one, and it was visible. I ended up going to the ceremony sans bra all together because even fabric tape wasn't keeping it hidden. Boyfriend (and all his fraternity friends') jaws dropped when I walked into the reception, though! So many compliments!

Perfect fit! Countless compliments!
I loved this dress and didn't want to send it back. It fit like a glove! The length was perfect! Being on the taller side, finding dresses the appropriate length for occasions can be tricky. I loved the plunging neckline. I ended up using double sided tape to help ensure things staying in place while dancing the night away. Also, this dress was light enough for an outdoor wedding in June in Columbia, SC.

Underwhelming
I was so excited for this dress but it seriously missed the mark. It ran extremely large, the reviews were not joking. I'm in the process of losing weight so I assume that was some of my issue. I wore the 2 and still had 3" of extra fabric in the back. I wore a u-form bra. If I hadn't I would have given everyone a show. I had to keep my shoulders back and stand up straight all evening which was super uncomfortable. At least I got a good trap workout. Also, the fabric reminded me of a dinner napkin, not my favorite. If you're thinking about this dress, pick another! I've rented several dresses before, all have been amazing with the exception of this one.

I had an unbelievable amount of people compliment my fabulous dress! It gave me so much confidence!
It was very waste flattering and I could have fit into the 8 if it weren't for my "extended ribs" so the 10 was a little big on the shoulders. I used the tape trick to get my girls looking good and it provides coverage in case it got chilly *wink* The fabric was high quality and overall the dress is stunning on! I would recommend everyone wear it at some point!

Jaws Dropped
I rented this for a boudoir photo shoot and my birthday extravaganza later that night. It runs true to size and very snug in the waist which I loved. I recently lost 25lbs so for my curvy girls/hourglass girls this is perfect. It did bunch up in the back for me when standing but I have a short torso so there is that. The bust area for me was good and I only felt a little risqué when sitting down and leaning over. It's a beautiful dress that causes mouths to drop (whether out of admiration, jealousy, desire, it doesn't matter that's the point) and I know I will be renting it again (if my boyfriend doesn't buy it first).

Looking for a jaw dropping dress? Look no further.
Absolutely loved the "wow" factor of this dress. Wish I had double sided tape (I'm sort of short in the torso so I had to make sure to keep my shoulders back). Fit beautifully and was very comfortable.

Top is a little open so you need tape.
