Totally awkward cut!

You can't tell because of the way that the model is slouching but this dress is cut so strange. The arm holes are cut so far toward the front of your chest it's like a mini front halter. No bra is appropriate. I was able to make this look really cute with a black tank and a belt but it's not a good look alone.

Made me look frumpy.

I really liked the pattern on this dress but I ended up not wearing it. It didn't have any shape to it and just made me look frumpy. The arm holes are really low so you couldn't wear a bra with it. I tried on a black racer back tank top underneath and that solved the problem for me.

Perfect bday dress!

I wore this dress for my birthday night out with friends and I loved it! The fit is definitely supposed to be baggier, which is what I loved about it. I ended up wearing the small because the medium showed more side boob than I was wanting to show, but that was mainly the only difference in the fit. The armholes were still big enough that the bralette I wore under still showed. I would rent again!

Fun boho chic outfit

Dress runs small. Wore a bralette with the dress, edge jewelry and cute wedges. Perfect date night outfit. Will probably buy this dress of I find it at a nordstroms !

Struggled with finding a way to wear it but it looked awesome with a black lace bandeau!

Not the best picture of the dress, but hopefully it helps show the cut of the dress. I am not able to be a part of the no-bra camp (thanks darling daughter!) but that would work really well with some fashion tape for a lot of girls! I bought a lace bandeau to wear under and it was great. I really liked this dress but it was a little out of my comfort zone. Fun for the bachelorette party at least!

Cute, but runs large!

This dress was super cute and flowed really nicely. I didn't get to wear it since both sizes were too big. I think the XS would have fit nicely.

Casual, gorgeous dress!

I loved this dress and didn't want to return it!!!! It was so flowy and soft. My only complaint was that the arm holes were enormous- I decided to embrace it and go with a crazy bright, lacy bra and it worked out well. The medium and large both fit similarly but I went with the large because of the length.

So much style potential with this look!

Flowy dress with large arm holes- absolutely loved this look! I even ended up buying the dress and I come up with any excuse to wear it. It is pretty long in the back if you're short like me and can look unflattering in pictures if your not careful but I'm still obsessed with this dress!

Pretty dress, big arm holes

I got this dress for a picnic and ended up having to send it back because the fit was very weird. The arm holes were huge and I am busty so it showed a lot of side boob. I was so sad because it is a beautiful dress, light and flowy and great for an informal party. I would definitely recommend to someone who is not as busty and a to have a cami/bra top on hand!

Wore it two times. Once to meet my fiancé'a aunt and then to a casual play.

Very comfy. Super soft fabric. I wore a spaghetti strap black tank underneath and it looked great! I loved it. Kind of bohemian which I love because I have long curly hair.

Cute summer dress

This was a cute dress with an interesting fit. The bottom was higher in the front, maxi in the back- which created a flowy and pretty effect. The top was cut in a way that showed A LOT of side boob, I can not imagine this dress without something under (bandeau? Bathing suit?) I liked this aspect of the dress but might not be a crowd pleaser. It is unlined , I wore it on a hot day on vacation, to a farmers market ... Got a lot of compliments... But it is a casual dress or beach dress .. Not really appropriate for an event

Comfortable and Bohemian chic

I really love this dress although it's definitely a bit more flowy than pictured. The color is also tan and black whereas in the picture it looked more Navy. Overall really like it

Perfect Party Dress

Loved the Dress. It flows beautifully. Arm holes are quite low, so I wore a lace bralette under that added a pop of fun.

Cute beach dresss

Definitely a casual flowy beach cover up, but loved it! Runs a little big and the sides cut down pretty far so would have to wear a bandeau or cute bra with it. I wore it on the weekends to the beach and to a music festival and got a lot of compliments.

Easy and comfy

This dress is definitely not form fitting, but it is very comfortable on a hot day while still looking chic. Other reviewers have mentioned this--the arm holes are far too large to wear a regular bra, but I wore sporty Handfull bras with it and they looked great. I think the best part about the dress is the high low hem that was just the right length for someone short like me.

The perfect flowy summer dress (comes down low on the sides)

I loved this dress. It was super casual and flowy. Perfect for summer days BUT you will need bandeau unless you want that side boob look. It comes down low on both sides. This could even be worn as a bathing suit cover up! Will rent again!

Loved it!

One of my favorite things I have rented! Great dress for an afternoon brunch with friends. Yes, the armholes are very deep but I wore a strappy bralette underneath and it looked perfect. The material is very light & super flowy. Loved the pockets! An all around winner for a casual event.

I wore it so many times

I love this dress! I wore it so many times. Dressed up with a shirt over the top, and dressed down. Very low cut sides, so you have to plan on layering wisely underneath. It's very long, dragged on the floor when wearing flats.

Perfect dress for dancing!

I rented this dress for a music festival and it was the best decision ever! I ordered both the large and medium but for some reason the large looked like it was hemmed, it didn't have the long tail the medium had, really weird. I stuck with the medium, the fit was perfect. I wore a crop top bra and gave it a few knots through the day! #myfirstRTR

More Casual than Dressy

RTR sent this as a replacement when an item wasn't available. Not dressy enough for wedding, but cute! Would wear as a beach coverup. The top is cut very low on he sides, so you'd need a different bra/bandeau

Light, flowing, wonderful

Wore this on a hot day in Florida and it was perfect. Like others say it's big and you must wear a bralette or something otherwise you will have a lot of side boob. I loved it and will wear one more time before I return!

Cute pattern & comfortable fabric

I loved the pattern and flowy look of this maxi but like most other free people style, it runs BIG! I'm 5'8, usually always a size 6/8 and I tried the size Small on in this and it was still too big/ not very flattering on me. It may just be my body type since I'm more curvy rather then straight and narrow but I would still size down to avoid looking like your drowning in the fabric.

Mixed feelings

Loved the pattern and the top/back. It is definitely more grey than white. Wearing a bandeau or something like that is a must. It is quite long. I didn't like how the waist was a little wider.

Perfect festival dress - flowy and fun!

I've put on weight recently and was skeptical about heeding the other reviews and sizing down to an XS, especially since a S wasn't available for my backup size. The XS fit great, however, because the cut was loose enough that I did not feel at all constricted. The armholes are big and the material is quite thin, so I recommend a pretty bralette and boyshorts for underneath.

Flowy, casual and fun!

I read the other's reviews and saw it ran very large. I usually wear a medium, but ordered an XSR and it fit perfect! I'm 5'3" and it didn't drag on the ground (Everythingggg drags on the ground for me). As the others said, you do need to wear a bandeau bra or something similar because the arm holes cut really low. It looked so awesome when walking, the skirt flowed beautifully. Would definitely rent again!

Awesome versatile dress W/ POCKETS

First things first, the top of this dress has an interesting cut. If you are an A cup I'd say go braless and show a little side boob but everyone else will need to wear a tank or bandol under this. If you don't... the majority of your bra will show or you will have MAJOR side boob if you go braless. Secondly, it's really flattering and flowy. This dress moves A LOT! The print is great and can easily be dressed up or down. I wore it to an interview belted with a suit jacket, electric blue clutch and a statement piece cocktail ring. I also wore it to a friends BBQ with just a black lacy bra. Both situations I got so many compliments from friends, family and even people off the street. LOVE this dress, I want to own it and wear it every day! Sorry for no pic!

Huge, very long arm holes.

This dress is huge. I pretty must always wear a medium dress. I put this one on and knew immediately it wouldn't work. It is cut VERY large. I would reccmmend sizing down.

Such a disappointment.

I rented this dress for an outdoor daytime wedding on the 4th of July. I did just have a baby 5 months ago, so I'm a little softer and larger than normal. The other reviews said the dress ran large, so I was hopeful that it would be forgiving of my post baby shape. This dress cut in all the wrong places. I am a classic hourglass shape, but this just made my butt look like a large shelf, and the front seam cut right across my "baby pouch", which was just horrible. Thank God I had the foresight to grab a few dresses off the clearance rack at Old Navy as backups, because I would have looked terrible wearing this dress! Unless you've got a rail thin figure, I don't see how this would look good.

skeptical at first, now i love it!

when i received the dress i was very very skeptical, but i've been converted. thoroughly. i'm typically btwn a 2 and a 4 and ordered the xs based on reviews. thank goodness. it fit with room to spare. the dress has no shape when you first put it on and the armholes are massive so you will need to work with it. i wore a charcoal razorback sports bra tank so i wasn't overexposed and used a thin beige belt to create a waist. threw on some cute flat sandals and i was ready for a day out. at only 5'3" i was really excited this dress was short enough for me to wear with flats without touching the floor. very rare! it also flows beautifully when you walk and even has pockets! general note, the dress looks black and very light gray to me. also if you're much smaller than me this dress may just run too large to work for you, but it's incredibly comfortable and versatile so i don't blame you for trying! i loved it so much i bought it :)

Tons of fabric

This dress was not very flattering, it didn't give you any waist whatsoever or any shape at all for that matter. I ordered a Medium, which is what I usually wear and it was huge. I was swimming in fabric.

Flattering Fit

It wasn't until I shared this photo on social media of my cat photobombing me, that I noticed the design of the cat's face on the torso of the dress. This dress has a distinctive, deep cut of the armholes that accentuates the arms and shoulders. There's nothing wrong with the dress; the armholes aren't too big, as other reviewers have noted. It just might not be to everyone's taste. Wearing a bra that peeks out isn't bad; wearers should choose a lacy bra that's meant to be seen. The rayon fabric is cool and perfect for late summer, up into early fall with a sweater. I loved the dress and wore it twice. However, I saw at least a dozen of them on the clearance rack at a department store, while shopping with friends, which immediately cut the wow factor for me. It's Rent the Runway, not Rent the Clearance Rack.

Holy Side Boob Batman!

It's large and baggy with a ton of side boob! Wore it with a black bralette and flops to the dog park. Good on a hot day when you're looking for something comfy and casual. Has pockets which I always love!

a different dress for everyday

I don't usually wear dresses like this (one of the reasons I love Unlimited--I get to try to many different things!) but I'm really glad I rented it. The print is more of a very light tan or nude color rather than a true black and white but it's still very pretty and has a nice graphic pop. The fit is very loose and flowy and it is quite low cut in the back and on the sides, so make sure you have a pretty bandeau or bralette to wear with it. I rated it four stars just because there is sort of a drop-waist with some ruching and it made me look a little hippy, but not enough that I didn't wear it. It's a great dress if you're looking for something a bit edgier and more interesting to wear for everyday, or maybe for brunch or a casual coffee date.

Love this dress so much I bought it.

The dress ran a little large so when I bought it I went down a size. Otherwise I loved it! It was so comfortable and it had pockets which was awesome. It doesn't really look like the photo in real life but it's still super cute.
