Runs LARGE!

I ordered a medium because I'm 20 weeks pregnant, and it was huge on me! Seriously size down!! It was like a tent. Super comfortable though, and definitely "bump friendly." Also, I wore a slip underneath as the material is pretty thin, and it's very low cut. PS- my body type is not listed under the options so just ignore that :) (are we really still comparing women's bodies to fruit? C'mon, RTR!)

Great dress!

Loved this rental - wanted to keep it! Dress is really comfortable and flowy, and the fact that it can be cinched keeps it from looking like a shapeless sack. Material is gauzy and a little see through, so you may want to wear with a slip or something. It was actually fairly chilly out when I wore this, so I opted for cropped leggings underneath. Got lots of compliments. Length was great for me (5'5), but might look odd on tall girls depending on the look you're going for.

Runs super large, I normally wear a size 8 and I wore the small and it fit perfectly. Such a pretty dress, details are gorgeous and it is super light and comfortable. One of my faves from Free People

Easier than yoga pants for errands 🖤

This is so comfortable, yet a little interesting, that it can't be beat for throwing on in a pinch. Errands, brunch, lounging, a casual drink. And, as with all RTR pieces, compliments from strangers can be expected 🖤

Light, feminine and flattering.

This dress is a little bit long on my 5'5" frame but it is flattering and super comfortable. Strangers on the street complimented on it. The other reviews said that it was see-through but not too much...I just wore all nude colored lingerie and felt completely covered up. I don't usually rent anthro or free people pieces on my unlimited subscription, but this is going on vacation with me and I'm looking forward to wearing it a lot.

Great dress that can be dressed up or down

I ordered this in a medium to wear in my 9th month. It was very flattering and I got a ton of compliments, The embroidery is really nice and the material is lightweight. It is super low cut so if you are lager chested like me you may need to wear a tank top. I would have kept it for much longer if it wasn't getting too hot to wear long sleeves.

Boho Chic

Loved this dress! I originally ordered a Medium but switched it for the Small in the store to offer a more fitted waistline. I have broad shoulders and the smaller size was not an issue. I wore this to a winery then later in the week for work and got a ton of compliments, easy, comfy and adorable- what more can you ask for?!

Great Dress

This was a wonderful dress for the day. It was a little deep in the cleavage, but other than that thought it was great. I also wore it with a slip - may have been slightly see through without one.

Great but see-through

Great dress for casual wear but just a warning that it is see-through. Needs a sip or very nude under garments.

Comfortable and Elegant Dress

I wore this dress out for dinner on my baby-moon vacation to Minneapolis. It's perfect for women rocking the baby bump! I am 7 months pregnant and 155 pounds - the small size fit very well.

Easy to wear, but see-through!

This dress is pretty low-cut and the drawstring is right under the bust instead of at the waist. I had planned to wear this to work but I wore it for Halloween instead. As we were out trick-or-treating, my husband said: i see London, i see France.... Be sure to wear a slip with this one! I didn't think this dress flattered my pear shape. It wasn't terrible but it accentuated my hips.

Comfortable yet dressy for Thanksgiving at home.

Loved wearing this over black leggings for Thanksgiving at home! So comfortable yet dressy. The top is a little low cut. Fabric is soft and thin.

Free People never fails!!

Ended up wearing this for my shower. Free People runs a tad bigger, so the small was perfect. I was 35 weeks at the time , perfect for belly bump, flows over your bottom half beautifully. Its winter, styled it for warmth, would work great for summer as well. Be prepared for cleavage, but it's just enough. Loved it!

Bought it

This dress is so adorable I ended up buying it and also bought one for my 22 yr old daughter. We both Love the way the dress flows. We definitely need to wear black slips underneath cause otherwise you can see everything going on under the dress. I haven't washed it, I've been sending it to the Drycleaners cause I don't want it to ruin the beautiful embroidery on it.

Perfect Summer Dress

I rented this for my birthday dinner. Casual but elegant. Great for the weather (hot). I got many compliments. Loved it so much that I bought it! I rented the Small and Medium. I'm usually in between and wore the small.

Dress up or down!

Rented this dress for a concert, but ended up going with something I already had. It was just a little too dressy for the occasion but I still LOVE this dress. I ended up wearing it to work the next day. I wore the XS and it's still very roomy. SIZE DOWN if you are considering renting it. It's supposed to be flowy, so the XS was perfect, but I originally thought I would be wearing the Small when I placed the order.

I wore this dress to photograph a wedding, definitely has a cute boho vibe.

It's pretty see-through, so I wore a black bra and actually wore pants underneath. Obviously you could wear a slip, but again, I'm a wedding photographer so I was dressing for ease & comfort.
