BoHo Chic!
This dress was so fun to wear! It runs true to size, but I would go a size down for back up. Great for any cup size. Not fitted and comfortable throughout. A sticky bra or lacy bralette would be great with this dress. Chunk accessories will make the look pop!

Where would you wear this dress?
I got this dress to wear to work. No way. It has sparkly threads and just looks more dressy in person than in the picture. But the cut and colors make it seem not quite right for a dressy occasion either. That said, it is actually beautiful, flattering, and I with I could have figured out somewhere to wear it- maybe I should have made my husband take me out to a nice restaurant for a fancy date night. That probably would have worked.

Design/Colors are gorgeous , but it has some shortcomings
So I float between a 0 and 2 in most dresses, but this one is more of a large wrap so I sized down. I am short so this hits right above my ankles (acting more like a short maxi). I think that the colors with the gold are absolutely gorgeous on, but there are some problems. Namely the material was very itchy on my sensitive skin and when I went to work with it on (covered the open back with a sweater), I found multiple gold threads had stuck to my chair! Sad because this dress came with the tags still on. Also, the slit from the two bottom parts of the dress coming together from the wrap can REALLY ride up when you walk. I kept thinking people could see all the way up to my underwear, but may this is because of my height? I just used a safety pin to make myself feel more comfortable in it. Overall, if this is the kind of style you like, this will be really pretty on and kind of sexy with the open back. BUT I am afraid to say that the designer just did not think through the material design and construction of the dress that well. Also goes w/o saying but you have to wear a sticky bra or petals with this dress!

Sparkles!
The dress was a bit itchy. Fit well. A little long for me. Also, I didn't love how it was backless.

RTR Team Review
Can't say enough great things about this Cynthia Rowley wrap dress. Love the peekaboo back and the wrap style is so comfortable. The subtle metallic print can be dressed up or down.

Amazing! Wish I could keep it.
The dress fits true to size and is a showstopper! I felt fantastic in it. The wrap pro of the dress of tend to open high on the thigh. Be prepared for some leg action on the dance floor.

Backless sexy
Loveee this dress! The wrap is adjustable. There is a subtle shimmer to this dress that pics cant really capture. It is a bit itchy but worth the itchiness for all the compliments. I love the floral pattern of the dress. Highly recommend for party or wedding of any season.

Beautiful--not the most comfortable
First of all, pictures don't do this material justice--the gold is a true metallic thread and really makes this much more dressy and special--unfortunately I think it's also what makes the unlined parts (specifically the waist line) pretty itchy--not something I'd expect from a well made designer dress. The open back made this much more sexy, but it also meant no bra and being a bit self conscious while dancing. It might have been me but without copious amounts of fashion tape I was never able to tie this true wrap dress in a way that I felt I wasn't going to pop out and I also used some on the slit which otherwise went all the way up with the wrong dance move. With the fashion tape I made it work. I picked it because I wanted something warm but still fancy for a November wedding --and it fit that bill nicely. If you don't have sensitive skin or get nervous about no bra (or plan on sitting still) this is really pretty. I paired with gold shoes and a red necklace and thought it looked great. Probably not something for work even though pictures from the front might make it look that way.

Will definitely be renting again!!! Very slimming and comfortable! Just wear a black tank under to add a layered look too cold for winter without.

Compliments Galore
I wore this dress for an outdoor New Year's Eve wedding in unseasonably warm weather. It was perfect. When my husband first saw me in it from the front, he said- "ehh... you look Amish." But then he saw the back, and corrected himself, "Sexy Amish." I received compliments all night at the wedding, and then even more from strangers (men and women) when we went out on the town for dinner and drinks. The fit was great and the material is beautiful. Would definitely rent again!

Work Christmas party!
This dress was everything! The cut was perfect for a work Christmas party with a little edge with the open back. I received SO many compliments on this dress. Now I just need to find an excuse to rent it again. Two girls asked for the designer so they could go purchase it themselves! I have a bit more up top so it was a bit revealing but nothing a well placed safety pin didn't handle. Also with the wind I was nervous about the skirt flying open but I just used some fashion tap and all was well.

STYLIST REVIEW
I am normally not into florals but made an exception for this style, even more so as I wore this over the winter. I LOVED IT. I'm 5'2 and the dress hit me at my ankles. I'm pretty tiny and the dress fit looser on me but was able to make it work with the wrap. I recommend receiving your true size and then getting a size up as a back up. You can always adjust the dress to make it fit around the waist. Depending on how low cut or loose the dress fits the body, you may want to consider fashion tape or a nubra. The metallic detail is subtle so you can dress it down with a leather jacket or dress it up to twirl around in a slightly more formal event. This style could work on almost all body types. In my opinion, you don't need to accessorize too much with this dress since the details are so eye catching. I wore small gold oval hoop earrings and suede sock booties to complete the look.

Beautiful print, fun and flirty dress!
Did not realize it was backless, so larger chest will definitely need some reinforcement. I boldly did not wear a bra but recommend tape or cuplets! Besides that misunderstanding, the dress is so beautiful and fun! Wore it to a boozy brunch and it was perfect!

This dress is stunning in person. The photos do it no justice, the colors are beautiful.
The dress fits very snug at the top - literally right where your bra ends the dress narrows. Because I had to size up in order to zip the dress, I found the sleeves a bit too long but I easily got over that once the compliments started to come my way. This dress is a winner and anyone who rents it will feel like a winner in it.

Great dress
I loved this dress! It was very comfortable and exactly what I was looking for since it was a wedding shower. I took my exact size but for some it may run big. You cannot wear a bra due to the backless feature and the wrap doesn't fully go to the other side but I wore black biker shorts underneath which never showed just in case. The compliments were endless. The gold appliqué made wearing gold jewelry a plus and I would definitely rent this again!

Felt confident and sexy!
This dress was amazing! I rented it for an anniversary date night with my husband and he was blown away! The top fit was loose but I think it looked best that way. I used fashion tape on the top and skirt to make sure there weren't any revealing moments. I'm on the shorter side but the length was midi and worked with heels. The back is amazing and overall I felt incredible in this dress!

Unique dress
I rented this for a baby shower/brunch. I received so many complements, especially with the beautiful back it features! The zero felt itchy and did not lay well over my bust. I found the 2 not to be itchy at all and it was much easier to manage the chest with a little bit of fabric tape. Such a pretty and unique dress. I wish it was a little shorter or longer because the length was a little awkward with me being 5'3".

Super cute, but creative safety pinning required!
I loved this dress, but it definitely required safety pins! I have DDs and this dress is extremely low cut (even when you try to wrap it tight), also due to the back, you can't wear a bra. I was able to get away with it once I pinned the front. I also needed to pin the slit since it very easily flies open. I wore to a bridal shower and received a lot of compliments. It's very flattering!

TINY BIT SMALL BUT AWESOME!
I rented this dress for a friend's bachelorette party. It. Was. A. Hit!! This is a true wrap dress that comes in sizes, which is a little different. I wore a 12 and gave me MUCH cleavage (more than I expected) and a high slit. Depending on where you wear this dress, size accordingly. Because of my location (private home) and event type, it was fine. I wouldn't wear this in public, though, except for Vegas Baby!! There are gold flecks in the fabric that are not visible in pictures. They make a huge difference in the formality of this dress. One friend told me I would look like a prairie girl. Ha. Ha! If this is a prairie girl, I'll take it!

Fabric makes this dress a MUST!
What a gorgeous wrap dress--the fabric is GORGEOUS, and the open back is sexy. Both the 4 and 6 fit, but I opted for the 6 to have a bit of extra coverage for my larger bust. I wore without a bra, and needed one safety pin for the girls. :) As other reviews noted, the slit on the bottom is high when sitting, but again, all you need is a safety pin to rectify.

Received a ton of compliments!
I wish the picture I posted gave this dress justice. If I saw it online I would not have rented it but I saw it in store and loved it! It's a wrap dress, so the fit was perfect and forgiving. There is some gold thread detail in the dress that is stunning! It actually made the airport scanner go bonkers. Loved this dress all the way around!

Fun dress with a sexy surprise in the back!
I wore this for a fundraiser with a dress code of "casual chic". It was comfortable, pockets were a plus, and I loved the open back. I do not have a bust so I probably should have opted for a smaller size because I felt like the dress looked a little big. I was able to wrap the belt around a number of times, so I wasn't worried about the dress opening, but I felt it made me look like I had big hips.

Love the backless detail.
Dress is really cute on. You need to fashion tape or pin it in the middle or it's REALLY low cut. No bra with the dress either.
