. I even got to show off a little of my side tattoo :)

Great rental- though I wore the 8, I definitely could have gone with the 6. Comfortable material, easy to wear & I got many compliments. I would definitely rent this dress again.

Beautiful & comfortable dress

Wore this to a derby themed wedding on a warm day/night & it was perfect. The dress runs large as all the other reviewers called out. Didn't look flattering at all angles but it was so comfortable to wear for many hours. I outfitted it w/ neutral wedges & nude clutch & simple gold jewelry. Didn't need much jewelry or accessories as the print was bold & colorful!

Lovely colors

Love the pastel, garden print. The dress runs big in my opinion, particularly around the back. I pinned the back tighter and then had no problems. Hides the tummy. I love the tie around the neck and flow of the dress. Originally rented this for a wedding, however ended up not being able to attend last minute so I wore this out for Sunday errands shopping for garden pots (sorry only full body picture I had!)

Way too large - could not wear

The fit was super baggy and the elastic around the back gaped on me, even though I sized down to a 2. I usually wear a 4, and I should have gotten a 0 in this dress. Gorgeous pattern and fabric through! And I love the neckline. Will order again in the correct size.

Cute print. but big!

Loved the print, but wished I would have went down 2 sizes. The back is stretchy and was a little loose and it was a very flowy in a could be pregnant way. That being said if you are pregnant - very bump friendly

So many compliments on this dress.

The fit was a little large. I am usually a 2 and I wore the 0 that still felt a little big. The fabric was very pretty and the color was great. Perfect for a fun rehearsal dinner. First experience with RTR and I was pleased!

Perfect for a daytime event!

Loved the style and the color. A little loose but was able to tie the top tightly enough to to hold it up. Wore to a brunch and was perfect.

Very roomy.

Beautiful colors. If you love the print, get this. It's even more beautiful in person and is very easy to wear. I went without a bra and felt completely covered. Play with the halter straps to get the coverage you need.

Great dress for derby

The dress runs a little large. Should have rented the 4. I wore this to a Kentucky horse race and was stopped by several random women asking where I purchased my dress. The back was so cute with the big bow and is perfect for any day time event. You could eat ALL the food and it wouldn't show. Big plus!

You'll need a strap free bra or cups if you're a bigger bust. This dress ran very large but was super comfy! I got a lot of compliments.

Cute

I wore this for Easter. The back is awesome. But the front is just okay. It def makes you look bigger than you are because it puffs out and being that I have bigger arms I didn't like that. But I have a toned back so it looked good. It was cute for Easter.

The back was beautiful!

The fabric was great, probably could wear without a bra if you wanted. I'm short so it was long and wide. The sheath look was not working so I belted it and it was perfect!

Perfect for an outdoor spring wedding!

Per other reviews, I got a size smaller than I normally wear, and it fit great! I opted to wear it tied tightly around the neck, but it also looks good tied more loosely. The texture of the dress was super cool, and the fabric was light and comfortable. I got lots of compliments and it really shone over other dresses that were just not as interesting. I felt great and really enjoyed wearing for the wedding, and out to some bars afterwards (switched to flats for that.) While the length was fine for a more causal afternoon wedding, it would probably be too short for anything more formal. I was totally comfortable with the length even with 5 inch wedges, but it's definitely thigh length if you've got long legs.

Lovely Easter selection!

Rented this dress for Easter festivities, as I am still an awkward lumpy postpartum shape and don't fit my usual clothes. It runs rather large--I'm probably a true 2 at the moment but the 0 fit very comfortably and was very flattering, hiding problem spots and highlighting shoulders, arms, and back. I wore a NuBra with it but imagine you could get away with no bra if you are not amply endowed, as the dress is sufficiently lined. Overall, I'm a very big fan and would rent again for a baby shower or a springtime wedding.

Super cute but runs very large

I loved this dress but really wish it fit a little better! I typically wear a 2 but I'm glad I went down for my backup size. Even the 0 was big on me.

Quick Delivery, as always, great dress!

This was my 2nd dress from RTR and it was perfect for an outdoor wedding at a beach/villa. It did run a little large, I normally wear a size 4. I decided to wear a skinny belt so that it gave me more curves. It would also be a cute dress for moms to be!

Got tons of compliments!! Great dress for a garden wedding!

Loved the flowing fit. Okay to go bra-less because fabric was bleated at the bust line. Fabric is textured which you can't see in the pictures.

Such a beautiful print

Fell in love with the floral print of this dress. Bonus point, you can wear it without a bra (and I am a 36C!) Definitely go a size down though, as it is very roomy. I wore it for brunch but might rent it again for a day wedding.

Billows in pictures

I rented this for a rehearsal dinner for a wedding I was in. I loved the dress and got lots of compliments, but it billowed in pictures and appeared very unflattering. It could partially be my fault because I wasn't sure which size to order and I went with a 6 (which is a little large at baseline); however, I have a suspicion the silhouette would have been the same if it fit perfectly. All of the chest up pictures were great... just a heads up to not stand on the end in a group photo!

Baby Shower

I wore this to a baby shower I attended. I'm also 7.5 months pregnant and it covered my baby bump well. Very loose fitting and comfortable. I wore a size down even with my large baby belly. This dress is not form fitting at all and runs large, I'd recommend 1-2 sizes smaller than you usually wear.

Great dress for a summer wedding!

Wasn't initially in love with this dress due to the lack of shape but because my back up dress did not come in time, I had to wear it. I ended up loving it and got tons of compliments--was also able to eat as much as I wanted because the dress is very forgiving. I sized down and honestly could've worn the 0 as well. Dress would work well as a maternity dress. I did not wear a bra and the fabric is not sheer at all. Dress had a bit of wear and tear showing but it wasn't too bad. FYI I am 5'7" 135 lbs and a size 4/32DD

This dress was so comfy and airy. I wore it to my sister's wedding and the reception was outside. This is my 4th rental with RTR. I really rely on the reviews to make a selection.

Bachelorette luncheon perfection

So happy with this dress for my best friend's bachelorette luncheon. The powder blue & floral print were perfect for the event & such a pretty combo. I love anything high neck which isn't easy to find as a summer look so this was a treat of a dress! Just know it does touch your throat & sits a little tight if you want it to be truly high neck so don't rent it if that bugs you! But you also could loosen it & wear it more like a collar bone length which i tried & was cute too but I liked it up better & fit better around my back up higher. Great fabric too, firm & didn't get wrinkled in my bag on our flight which is a plus!

Comfortable, oversized-but-in-a-good-way dress!

Ran very large, could have gone down to a 4 probably (normally an 8). Fit was so good, I am pretty big-chested (DD) and didn't have to wear a bra (it's so big and there are two layers of fabric, so honestly couldn't tell). That felt odd at first, but given that the back is low-cut, a regular strapless wouldn't have worked anyway. Got compliments all night with it, and it was perfect for a summer wedding.

No bra required

It's a cute dress and the only one I have ever considered wo a bra. The material feels and looks a little like a drapery and the back dips too low to wear a bra but it's ok bc the dress doesn't require one.

Love!!

So many compliments. The dress was so comfortable and beautiful. Fabric was high quality and had a very interesting texture to it. Color/Print were stunning. Got so many compliments. Cannot wear a bra, but it's really not needed. It runs big... I went down a size but probably could've gone down two sizes and been ok. Would rent again in a heartbeat!

Amazingly comfortable. I usually wear a 14 or 16 but the 12 was perfect. Super light and comfortable for a hot outdoor wedding ceremony in the south! I'm 5'8 and it hit about 3 inches above the knee.

RTR Team Review

This is a very loose fitting dress especially in the mid-section but still manages to look very pretty. Love the open back. The neck is a tie so it is easy to adjust based on preference. It hits right above the knee. Great dress for a shower or other type of summer luncheon.

Perfect, flattering, comfortable dress!

I rented this for an outdoor fundraiser for the zoo and it was AMAZING! I'm going to buy it now for sure. It does run a little large, but it's supposed to fit loose and flowy so that wasn't an issue for me. The colors are gorgeous in person and the texture of the fabric makes it so unique. Absolutely perfect dress for the occasion. It could also be perfect for a casual brunch with flats. Very versatile!

Super fun comfortable dress

I agree with other reviewers - this dress runs huge!! I usually wear a 6 and was more than comfortable in a 2. It was a really fun print and great for a bday party. Very sexy back - definitely no way to wear a bra if that bugs you.

So cute and comfortable

This dress runs large so definitely size down. I am usually not comfortable without a bra but was fine in this dress. It has textured fabric and is lined so you wouldn't notice if you had a bra or not. Sorry for the silly photo but my nephew said the pattern looked like the Arizona iced tea so took the pic as a joke!

Great birthday party dress for the hot weather!

This definitely runs big! I rented the 8 and 6 as my backup. I usually wear a 10. I wore the 6 and it fit great. You have to wear a strapless bra and need to watch the back that it doesn't show your bra. The length was fine. I'm 6' and it wasn't too short. It's very loose fitting so it will hide a lot! From some angles it looks a little boxy but nothing too bad. I love the top and how it shows off your shoulders. Lots of compliments at the party. I would definitely rent this again.

Love love love this dress! The material looks nice but is also light and airy for hot summer days/evenings. It made my back look amazing when I normally try to cover it up.
