Cute boho style runs so small

This ran so so small. Plus, there's a bustier style to the top that my east/west bust didn't fit into at all.

Beautiful, Classy, Ethereal. Will rent again!

Wore to house party and fell in love with it! Was a little long even with very high heels though not long enough to get a petite for my height. Light and flowwy enough to wear out to a festival as well!

Gorgeous bodice but need to be tall!

I love the fit of the bodice and the pattern but it's cut for someone taller. If you are 5'4" or under, you will most likely have extra room with the sleeves (making them difficult to keep in place) and extra fabric around the waist. If you try to pull it down, there is too much showing around the arm holes but if you pull it up, the sleeves flop over. Such a shame because it is very flattering otherwise!

I selected this dress on a whim as I was leaving the flagship store, and it coordinated perfectly

The fit is tight from the chest to the hips, but in a flattering way. It was great because I didn't need to wear a bra. The only con is that the cap sleeves can slip off your shoulders, but I fixed that with some fashion tape.

The material and the neckline!

The dress fit my body and flowed perfectly; however, I'm 5'3'' and the dress is definitely made for someone with a longer torso. The straps fell off my shoulders all day which made for an uncomfortable/inappropriate work outfit, but a tolerable social outfit. Otherwise, the dress hugged me in the right places, had a lovely neckline, and flowed beautifully!

Interesting dress, but chose something else.

Tried this for an LA wedding. Loved the cut of the neckline - very flattering even with no bra. However, the length/cut of skirt were not very flattering on me. I think it is meant for a taller girl so it ends at the ankle. Would be wonderful on the right person, but not for me.

Chic Hippy

This dress was hot! Fit perfectly around my ribcage and waist. Loved the fullness of the skirt. The only downside to the dress, I had to use fabric tape to secure the shoulders, and the neckline. The sleeve would not stay up, and one wrong move my breasts would be exposed. Very low cut! I did need to wear a bra, as there is no support offered in the bodice.

Stylist Review!

I love this edge dress by Free People! Running true to size without any stretch, I recommend wearing your true size for your primary size and going a size up for your back-up. This style is fitted throughout the midsection and fitted at the hips. It works best for A-C cups sizes. You are not able to wear a standard bra with this so you should wear a nubra or no bra since the back of the dress is open. At floor length, the dress hit right at my ankles on me. The floral print is very fun and colorful. Pair with heels or sandals to dress it up or down.

Romantic and feminine

I felt like a boho princess! I didn't have an occassion for the dress, but it was so pretty, I wore it, anyway. Pros: Flattering Renaissance inspiration Comfortable Flowed wherever I walked Many compliments Cons: It is very long - I am 5'1 and it touched the ground with 4-inch heels. The sleeves fell down a lot, but I do have a short torso. You will need a Nubra with this, as the back cuts into a deep V. I usually go without a bra, but I wasn't filling in the cups ( I am a 32C).

Very loose shoulders

Awesome fabric and pattern and great for everywhere except the shoulders which are weirdly ridiculously long and would need to have inches pinned to fit. Wish they were a little bit shorter!

Lot of compliments

Bodice is very tight and sleeves slipped off my shoulders. A lovely dress, though.

Oh how I loved this dress.

This dress was gorgeous. I wore it for a rehearsal dinner at a vineyard and got lots of compliments. It fit perfectly at the bust and the length was ok for a shortie like me (5'1") - just wore some 4-5 inch wedges and I was good. HOWEVER. The straps/sleeves are enormous (honestly idk who this would fit without boobs falling out all over the place) and you have to pin them down. Other than that, great.

Average dress

The dress was okay but not a show stopper. It's very lightweight so it's best for warm weather. The straps kept falling off my shoulders so I had to pin them down. I would definitely rent again for an everyday use but not for a fancy event.

Fits like a glove!

Loved this so much. Wore the 2R (I'm 33-28-36) and it was a tiny bit snug in the ribs and slightly roomy in the chest but no complaints! You will definitely need fashion tape to keep the straps up but it's a totally flattering neckline. Was worried from reading other reviews that the bottom would flare out too much making it too fancy for a work picnic but it was just the right amount of casual, low key & pretty. Thin material & thigh-length lining perfect for really hot weather. Would absolutely rent again--one of my favorite rentals, got lots of compliments. I've said it a million times but RTR has by far the best customer service of any company I've ever dealt with. I've been a long time renter and any time there has ever been an issue with anything, big or small, they have gone out of their way to prioritize me and solve the problem immediately. I have complete confidence every time I rent, and I am sure I will be a satisfied RTR customer for a very long time!

Boho Fairy Princess

Ok so I was a little bit hesitant to order this one, due to so many saying a big bust wouldn't work with it. However I just sized up and it fit AMAZING!! I'm in love with it. I wear a 34H cup and I'm typically a size 8/10 dress. One think though, it's very long. I'm 5'7 and I have heels on in this photo. You can't see them because the dress still hits the floor.

Formally not Formal

This dress was perfect for an outdoor summer to fall transition wedding. The beautiful print was a mix of turquoise, mustard yellows, greens, purples, pinks, and blues. It easily matches with gold earrings and many colors of shoes! Only warning, the sleeves slip down easily and I had to use fashion tape to hold to my bra strap.

So many compliments!

I am not a size 0 but needed something last minute and was trying on any size available and I think it fit because the only right area is above the waist. It isn't a long dress, I am 5'5" and it just touched the ground.

Flowy and comfortable for a hot August wedding!

I loved the unique pattern on this dress and took a chance on it for a casual August wedding. At 5'10" the length was perfect for me to wear flats and with a smaller chest (34D) I was able to go bra-less - although a sticky bra provided a little more cleavage. I loved this so much I wore it again for a rehearsal dinner in September. My only reason for removing one star was because the straps run long. In order for them to stay in place I had to be very conscious of my posture and used some fashion tape to keep them from slipping off my shoulders.

Very pretty dress

This dress is gorgeous. It runs true to size, if a little small, so definitely size up for back up. It is also much more formal looking than I expected, so I wore it to a dinner.

Surprisingly pretty!

This was very much a last minute, back up, BACK UP dress, as there was an error made with my actual rental. I was leaving SF for a wedding in hours, and managed to swing by the store in Union Square to look for a dress after receiving someone else's order the night before. This honestly was the only semi-casual dress option in my size in the store late on a Friday afternoon, and I had very low expectations when going into the dressing room, as I am not a fan of sweetheart necklines or capped sleeves. However, this dress looks COMPLETELY different on than it does on the hanger. It went from a Laura Ashley knockoff to the perfectly formal/informal floral dress that fit absolutely perfectly around my chest and waist, and fell exactly at the right spot to hide my hips. I got so many compliments at the outdoor Sonoma wedding I wore this too, and no one could believe I had picked it out less than 24 hours prior to the wedding. Give it a try if you're looking for a beautiful, floral dress. But be aware, it is not meant for ladies with larger chests.

Beautifully made

I wore this for my baby shower (ordered two sizes bigger to accommodate bump) dress fit perfectly (a little little too much bust revealed for my taste, but completely manageable) I received several compliments on the dress and couldn't have been happier.

Felt like a million bucks!

Really loved the color and the flattering cut. The straps kept falling down which was not a favorite thing of mine, but hey, maybe it gave it a more boho flair? I don't know. Still loved it! Got a ton of compliments!
