I was worried this wouldn't work with a large bust but it did!

Cons I think it needs a little bit of give in the bodice.

RTR Team Review

Gorgeous pink gown with an interesting neckline. The shape of this dress is so beautiful and feels so elegant. Unfortunately with the cutouts below the bust it's impossible to wear a bra, even a strapless or NuBra. It's a great dress for women with smaller busts. The dress has no stretch and is fitted in the waist, so I would size up for backup.

Super simple and easy

This was so comfortable and looked great all night. Undergarments are a challenge but you don't need them. The color really pops.

Total showstopper!

Wore this to an early fall black-tie wedding and received a TON of compliments! I loved that it was flattering and unique without being overly completely formfitting. Sizing was pretty true to size, though it was a bit tight in the waist seam- I ended up wearing a 4 over the 6 since the midriff cutout in the 6 gapped a lot. It was the perfect length at 5'7" in 3" heels, so I would go for a long if you are much taller!

The. Best. Dress. Ever.

This gown was comfortable, flattering, well-made and the color POPs. It's not too bright, but it's subtle and can work any season. I'm 5'4 and the length was perfect with my heels. It wasn't too much cleavage (and my boobs are DD so if can be tough.) I was getting compliments all night, I couldn't have been happier with this choice. I'd wear it again and again.

The color is gorgeous, received compliments all night!!

Fits great, might even run a little big. I ordered the long and had to wear flats because it barely covered my ankles. The center cutout cuts super low, so I couldn't wear a bra. I am a 34DD and when I sat down the cutout gaped open and was much more revealing then standing. Overall, I would order this dress again and just go up a size so the fabric doesn't gape as much when seated.

The color is really vibrant and fun!

I usually wear an 8, but sizing up to a 10 made the dress lay really nicely without being to big. I received so many compliments on this dress.

Fit like it was custom made!

The fit was very true to size and the A-line style was very slimming on the hips. However, make sure to be careful when you are sitting down because the center cut out expands when you slouch. Overall, this is a great dress and fits like it was custom made! I was so sad I had to return it!

Beware if you are large chested

The dress is beautifully made, but beware if you have a large chest! I was nervous about renting this dress with the keyhole neckline, but after reading reviews from other large chested women, I decided to give it a try. It ended up showing a LOT of cleavage. I wore the larger size (that was big on me everywhere else) so that my chest was more covered. I am turned to the side in this photo, but the full-frontal is pretty graphic lol.

I loved the color of this dress, it stood out.

This dress fit well and looked great. I received many compliments. I didn't have to wear a bra but had to constantly check that too much boob wasn't coming out. The length with 2.5 inch heals was pretty perfect. I would recommend.

The color really made me stand out and I felt so beautiful!

The one thing I will say is that the top was a little looser than I would have liked so smaller chested people may want to be aware of that before deciding on a size.

I attended a Christmas ball, and it was magical. I got so many compliments on this dress!

The dress definitely runs true to size. I ordered a size that was too big. I like to say that I have size 6 shoulders and a size 8 waist. Size 8 usually fits well, but the structure around the bust and shoulders was definitely too big for me. Fit great on the waist. If I rent this again, I will definitely go with a 6!

Short girls beware length

Loved the fit around the bust, the fabric, the color but the length way too long for me. I'm 5'1, and even with the highest heels the dress dragged a considerable amount.

A fun dress for a fun Night! and, a little cheeky.

I don't have a waist ... hourglass is not a far term, but it's the only one I could pick really. This dress gave me a bit of a waist and helped me not seem as short (5'2") because of the long skirt. The keyhole maybe be be for everyone but with the right stick on bra - I loved it. The color is a pretty magenta, it might seem more pink in photos (it's Barbie-ish in photo). I fashion tapped the straps to my shoulders - cause they aren't so much for support. Very happy with dress - but check out Jill Stuart Sizing . I got a 10 - which was just right for me. The fabric was a high quality and I hemmed with fashion tape. (I am picture with my sister - her dress was also RTR).

True to size, lots of compliments! More purple IRL than pink like the photo suggests.

This dress was amazing, it fit very well and I received a ton of compliments! I did not really have to adjust it at all throughout the night and I didn't wear a bra. The only issue is if you slouch and turn at the same time it can kinda show more cleavage than you were planning. I have gained weight recently but the 6R still fit comfortably, really only fitted around the ribcage. The color is definitely more purple than pink but still a very rich lovely color. Would recommend!!

Vibrant Color

I really loved this dress for a black tie wedding. The color is a bright fuchsia and the silk material is loose enough to be extremely comfortable. The neckline and silhouette are very flattering. For the dress to work comfortably it does need to lie somewhat flat on your chest which as a B cup was fine for me with no bra. I could see it being trickier if you have a larger bust.

The dress itself is so cute and I was excited to wear it. However in the pictures I thought It looked more dark pink but when I received it was dark purple , not a very pretty color.

N/A

The fit around the waist was very secure, however I am 5'2" and the straps were too long so it hung down too far. I cross the straps for it to hold up better and it worked! I was concerned with my chest popping out, but if I had a bigger set I don't think it'd be a problem! Overall, beautiful dress!

Easy & Elegant Wedding Guest Dress

Really loved this dress for an October black tie optional wedding.The color is a pretty fuchsia more on the purple side. You don't need to much to go with it, it's a very easy and elegant dress. Did not wrinkle throughout the night either! I found it true to size, and did not need a bra to wear with it. Was long on me, I'm 5'3 and had to wear my 4 inch heels, which was fine with the heels. I highly recommend this dress, looked great in photos!

Beautiful color

The color is a beautiful magenta and the cut is great for a beach wedding. I wore a 0 and I have a 32A bust, 25" waist. The waist was perfect, and with a little fashion tape this fit very comfortably in the top. I am 5'6" and wore 3" heels, and the dress still touched the floor. A little too long for dancing. Many complements throughout the night. I only gave 4 stars, as I thought a typical size 0 should have been cut a bit tighter in the top and shorter in length, since we cannot alter these dresses.

Great color and drapes well for photographs.

Worn for a black tie event. Dress fit comfortably and loved the color. The dress forced me to have good posture for the evening so that the cutout didn't reveal too much.

Was perfect for a November wedding, was a standout among almost all black/navy dresses.

Received several comments that it was their favorite dress of the evening. I normally wear a size 2/small/26/34 A and it fit absolutely perfectly with no bra. There's a little padding in the bra, but the dress is super forgiving because of the pleats. Absolutely gorgeous gem color.

First time using rent the runway

This was my first time using rent the runway, and I'll admit I was nervous about it. Turns out there was no need to be! The dress fit perfectly!!! I have broad shoulders and a wide rib cage so I was worried it may be too tight, but I didn't even need the larger back up size!

Being with family and my dress!

The dress fit perfectly. Others might say it ran large, but for me it was perfect. I have a larger waist than most proportionally, but this was PERFECT on me everywhere. I felt confident and beautiful. I just wore shaper shorts underneath to alleviate any lines or other shenanigans.

Gorgeous, fun color

I loved the dress! It was a little loose on my waist in size 8 (I'm 5'8.5" and 155 lbs, hourglass shape), but it was close enough and I personally really liked it! However, my boyfriend didn't like how it looked on top. To be fair, it didn't give much chest support so the ladies weren't looking their best. I'm a 34C so they aren't huge, but support is needed and appreciated. Might look perfect on a smaller breasted person though. You really can't wear any kind of bra with it either unfortunately. It did show some underboob though which could be good or bad depending on who you are. Loved how flowy and forgiving it was and personally would have been my choice!

Loved the color!

The dress was super comfortable and fun to wear. I have a smaller bust so the slit in front was no problem for me. The lining came very winkled and I did not have time to properly steam so it did not lay flat.

Not tall girl friendly

Lovely color and neckline but the long sizing isn't true to size. At 6ft the 6L was at my ankles (almost the same length of the regular 6). Definitely recommend to others but be aware if you're on the taller side.

the dress is beautiful and i actually had no concerns that it showed too much boob if i moved in a weird way. i think it just depends on the size you order and your bust, but i didnt think I would have needed fashion tape

I usually wear a 10 but the top was WAY too big and the straps were really loose. The 8 fit nicely but the cutout opened a little more than I would have preferred. Overall I really loved the dress and color!

Stunning color but a lot of boob

My most favorite dress I've rented from RTR to date. The dress fit well, however, as a curvy/bottom heavy person the lining was way too tight on my hips. If you have a bigger chest, don't rent it. I'm a B and it squished my chest all night. I felt beautiful but a little too revealing at times for a wedding

GORGEOUS

Rented this dress for engagement photos and I was so pleased. I'm a 38DD and I didnt wear a bra. The dress is comfortable but my favorite characteristic is hands down the color. It photographed wonderfully. I would caution wearing it for a event just because of the cutout. It would probably be easier if I was little smaller up top. All in all it was a gorgeous dress and I didn't even have to wear spanx.
