Awesome! Open back

Super cute dress. I'm between a 6 and 8 and the 8 probably would have been better. The back is wide open so with a larger chest I felt like it opened more than usual.

DVF for the win!

Darling dress that's easy to throw on and go! Wore a bandeau underneath since there is a large back opening. Great coloring, loved this!

The pattern is amazing!

Pros: incredibly comfy, I sort of pulled off not wearing a bra, comfortable material, amazing color/pattern, lots of compliments. Cons: ran a little big, was also longer than I expected. Slash went all the way down the back so I couldn't wear a bra and material was right on the line of being thick enough to do so. Overall: really fun dress, would rent again and wear to multiple types of events- easily dressed up or down. DVF knows what she's doing.

Runs large

Pros- love the colors and the fabric. Great length for work, can dress up or make casual Cons- one of the reviews said to size up if your in b/w sizes and larger chested due to the opening in the back. I️ completely disagree. You will be swimming in the dress and there is no real way to tighten the drawstring waist enough to flatter you.

I received so many compliments .the colors of my dress gave me a certain glow ! :) Thank you RTR !

Loved this dress ! Wore it twice ! Pro's : forgiving for post-pregnant body, fun, colorful Con's: wasnt found of the opening in the back. I ordered a size too big which only made the opening worse but, nothing a nice stylish jacket couldnt fix Also, because it was a little too wide (should have gotten a smaller size) and being a bit om the short side (why i had really opted for bigger size {i'm 5'7}) i had to be extra careful it didnt ride up when i made swift movements. Having curves in my backside didnt help eeek!

Pretty pattern, not the most flattering

I like the pattern and colors of this dress, but didn't find it flattering. Because of the open back I had to wear a black tank top underneath. The fabric was very thin and clingy (hard to wear with tights!) It was hard to pull the waist tight enough, so I overall just felt like it was not a flattering shape. That said, I still wore it to a dinner and it was a fun pattern to wear around.

Cute but clingy

Really fun pattern and silky material, but it was super clingy and static-y, so i was constantly pulling at it. I love the high neck but the open back makes it hard to wear a bra. Fun for a photo shoot though!

Not for a large bust

This dress is cute. Its shorter than I expected. I think it would look precious on someone with a small frame. My boobs and butt were way too curvy for this little dress. Also the tie doesnt tie tight. Its a loose fitting, odd waistline... At least it was on me.

Great dress from day to night!

I was super excited to wear this colorful DVF dress for my friends bachelorette! Ive got more of a gut and the dress fit perfectly and was very comfortable. I paired the dreas with nude heels and turquoise beaded tassel earrings. The pictures taken from that night were all grainy and did not represent what it truely looked like on. I liked the dress so much, i ended up wearing it to work the next week!

Not great for tall gals

The overall fit was great-/ the length was where things went wrong for me. I'm 5'7" and this seemed a little too short for everyday wear... I didn't end up wearing it.

Meh!

The color and pattern are very lovely. The sleeves were too tight for me, but the dress was oversized everywhere else. The back is open which makes it a difficult wear. Also a little too short for my taste.

Adorable, but quite short if you're tall

I rented this for a fancy cocktail party, and while I loved the colors, pattern, feel and floaty movement of the material, it felt a bit precariously short on my 5'11 frame. Had the weather called for tights, I might have given it a go. For the rest of the fit, I suppose I could have sized down, but I thought this style was more suited to being loose on one's frame. Anyhow, it's a lovely dress, and I highly recommend it to ladies a few inches shorter, a few years younger, or a few degrees braver than myself!

The color and dress itself are beautiful. However it was extremely short and the back is open so you cannot wear a bra.

Pop of color

Great dress! Had to wear a tank top under for the open back. Dress was too short (even for me at 5'3") for showing homes....especially for bending down to open lockboxes.

Wide and short

Wasn't the right fit for my body, tie was up top high on waist and hem was short. You have to wear tank top underneath too because it's open in back so impossible to wear bra.

Nothing else like it.

Not a date night outfit but felt feminine and artsy for networking and a business happy hour . Other woman will appreciate it. Not really form fitting or sexy so wouldn't wear on a date.

Love the fabric

This was a little big but the waist drawstring makes it highly customizable. It's a bit short, so I wore Spanx underneath, but I have long legs and felt amazing in it.

Not sure I will wear it.

Love the print but can't get rid of the static cling. It does run a bit large and is hard to cinch the drawstring so it fits and is flattering. If I can get rid of the static cling I think it might work.

Vibrant and Beautiful

This dress looks best with a jacket of some sort over the top to help give it some shape. (Plus, the back has a long slit in it, so your back totally shows making it hard to wear a bra...) Once I paired it with a denim jacket (also RTR), I was in love. A little static problem in the winter, but over all it looked really stunning and is a head-turner. Comfortable, too!

Lively color and comfortable

I've rented this silhouette previously in DVF dresses and it did not disappoint. Fits runs large on this but cinch waist fixed that. The color definitely stood out on a gray day. I wore a backless bra because of the back opening and it worked perfectly. Not ideal for winter but the colors didn't go well with black tights.

Great print, not a good fit

The print is great. It was like a square sack on me. I couldn't pull the cord tight enough to look good. Key hole/open back. Like a babydoll top.

This dress has a drawstring, so you can adjust the fit. I wore the 6 for length, but the size 4 fit perfectly. This dress is comfy and cute - loved wearing it for a night out!

The people

Pros: Great pattern and colors, great shape wore with leggings worked with my tall height Cons: the slit in the back is just silly. Impractical and looks really goofy in some underclothing, like you don't know that your bra is showing. Wearing sans bra would only work at a party or something and would not work for me. Without the hole in the back I might have bought it cause the color is beautiful and the shape is fun, with the hole it is just not too wearable...wore a camisole beneath to cover the hole. Suffering supermodel clothing.
