Stylist Review
Love! This is the perfect Sea Foam/Teal/Mint Color. It is about knee length, maybe it bit higher, but not much. And, hello, pocket! Gotta love a good pocket. I'd say go with the strapless bra here - it would be a pain to constantly line up the straps of your bra with that of the dress all night. This classic fit and flare style is good for all body shapes, even small baby bumps! The waist is fitted at the natural waist and flares out from there, so its super comfortable. Pair with some fun sunnies and a top knot!

Great dress. Comfortable, easy to dance in and got lots of compliments.
I'm 5'7'', athletic and a 34c. Fit me like a glove. If you are chestier you will have to go up a size.

Classy and chic!
The dress was a beautiful aqua. Much nicer in person. Loved the bow detailing on the back of the dress. Thought the fit was very tight through the chest. I ended up wearing it without a bra because it was so fitted. Would have preferred the length to be a little shorter. It hit right in the middle of my knees. Overall, it's a nice dress. I would recommend it for someone who is small breasted and taller.

Perfect dress for spring formal for medical school!!!! The bow is adorable! I may have been able to fit into a 2---but I am a 4 true and true so the sizing was accurate. Perfect with wedges! Even wore it for Easter brunch the next day!!!!

Liked it more than I expected!
I got this dress for engagement photos. It fit well, although it was a little bit loose around my waist.. The fabric does not stretch, so keep that in mind when choosing a size! The dress was nice and the fabric is light and thin but not see-through.

Great dress, fast delivery, great customer service. I am a big fan
Dress is true to size, very comfortable, love the pockets. I have a pear shaped body, my chest is smaller compared to my hips so the top was a bit loose, i had to use a big push up bra to fill the top. Color is beautiful, i wore it to a spring wedding on a boat and received many compliments. If you have wide hips like me, this dress helps you hide them. Great length, not too long, not too short. Great for dancing!

Fit great around the waist. Long enough. The straps were a tad loose on top but overall it was great.

Perfect dress for spring wedding!
Loved everything about this dress. Typically I wear a size 12 but found I had a little more breathing room in the 14. The color is stunning and the skirt and pockets are very flattering. Back details look and feel great.

Gorgeous color and detailed back
Loved this rental. Rented this outside my unlimited subscription to ensure delivery. Both the 4 & 6 fit well, wound up wearing the 6 for comfort. This dress is slightly longer than i prefer but it worked well for a bridal shower. This dress has pockets and gorgeous detail on the back with a bow. Best part is you can wear a standard bra! Thick and lovely fabric. Will rent again for sure.

Really pretty!!
This dress was gorgeous and easy to wear. The one I received had a horrific body odor smell but I can't hold that against the dress itself. The color was vibrant and it was comfortable too. I used others' advice and went with a strapless bra. It runs true to size despite being a designer brand, if not a tiny smidge on the big side.

Gorgeous color.
I'm 5'4" 150lbs, and the size 6 would have been perfect, but only the 8 was available. It worked out great, although there was some room at the waist. It was about 2 inches above my knees. Beautiful spring color!

Fits pretty true to size. However it was a little bit big in the top. Not so much that it didn't still look good though.

I received a ton of compliments! Love this dress
The dress is true to size. I was worried about length because I'm petite but it hit me right above the knee which is what I wanted. The dress is comfortable, fits great, and is very flattering. I wore this for Easter Sunday and received many compliments. Also, the color is fantastic!

This dress fits beautifully and the color is GORGEOUS!!!
The bow detail is so much fun, I felt great wearing this dress. For busty girls beware it has a size zipper which is always tricky but once zipped it is really comfortable and fun to wear. I love the pockets as well, it's a fun little design detail that you can't tell in the dress photo

The back with the bow is so cute.
Loved the fit! The pockets were great. It was a little heavier fabric, but I loved that. You can even wear a regular bra if your straps are tight enough that they stay put under the straps of the dress. Worked out just fine for me.

This dress fit a "Mad Men" themed wedding perfectly!
This dress was lovely! Although the 4 was a better fit, I am usually a 6 but to me Kate Spade always runs big, it came with a stain on it so I could not wear it. I called RTR, who is always fabulous and helpful, and they offered to send me a new one. Given the theme of the wedding, I decided just to wear the 6, which was not too big, but I think you can tell in photo that it is a bit loose. I was able to wear a normal strapless bra, and accessorized the dress with Mystery Bling from RTR, which turned out to be a lovely pair of Kate Spade earrings, and beige sandal heels. I would recommend this dress to anyone who is looking for a more modest but definitely sassy look!

Beautiful blue color, adorable details on the back, and was perfect for dancing!
The back was my absolute favorite and I sadly didn't get any pictures of it! You can wear a normal bra without worrying about the strap showing. The color was also perfect for a winery wedding!

The back is what makes this dress special
The color and fit are nice, but nothing special. The open, scrappy back is what really made the dress a hit. The 4 fit nicely, and wasn't too short.

Beautiful dress, but ordered wrong size based on reviews!
When choosing this dress, I read the majority of the reviews. Most everyone was suggesting ordering a size up if you are larger than a 34C. I followed the advice and ordered the 2. Unfortunately, it did not work out for me. The size 2 dress, while very beautiful, did not fit my body well. The chest was not tight at all, while the rib area was too loose. Additionally, the skirt ended up being way too full due to the larger size. Overall, I felt like this dress did not flatter my body at all. I definitely would have been more comfortable in the 0.

The dress is a little large in the bust, but otherwise it fit true to size. The back with the bow is absolutely adorable and it is a very flattering silhouette.

Loved this dress. It fits true to size. I loved that there was hidden pockets on the side. The back bow was my favorite part. The back is not too low, you can still wear a bra. It was perfect for the occasion.

Loved it!!
When I first tried it on I didn't want to take it off!!! This dress was perfect for the Kentucky Derby, the pockets helped tremendously. I had to try on a few different bras because the back straps of the dress are placed in an odd spot but otherwise this dress is amazing. Fits true to size and I loved it!!! The zipper was a little tricky though so be careful.

Dress was extremely comfortable and figure flattering great for an athletic build. I was between the 2 and 4 and went with the 4 for extra room in bust area.

Lots of compliments, cute fun dress with enough length for a wedding!
Pros were that it was a great color, fun and flouncy with enough length for a wedding. The fit was great, which was good because there would have been no give! So many compliments received! It arrived fairly wrinkled, but a friend and I were able to steam it easily and I was able to wear it. If you don't have an iron that steams (mine was pretty cheap) and are in a time crunch, don't order it. There was also no room for error on the sizing as the waist is not flexible - I got lucky since it's very true to size.

So comfortable and fun!!
I was expecting to wear the 2 but I'm glad I got the 4. The 2 was just a little tight around my shoulder blades. The 4 was good but a little loose in some places. I'm kudu in between right now. The pockets are awesome and the color is perfect for spring and summer. I would recommend it!!

I wanted to love this dress!
This dress is so so cute and loved the material of it! I'm only 5'2" so the length was not what I expected - well past my kneecaps - and made me look wider. I didn't end up wearing this but it does have pockets ! I couldn't fit in the size 10 and the size 12 was a little snug but I do have a larger rib cage/bust area so I always have trouble with dresses with fitted waists.

This was a very comfortable and beautiful dress. I wore it for my sister in law's beach rehearsal dinner and I received a lot of compliments on it. It's great for hot, humid weather because it's very light, breathable and it's not too tight.

Super cute dress!
This dress was super cute! It was perfect for the Kate Spade themed bridal shower I wore it to. I thought the pleating and skirt were really flattering and I got tons of compliments! Everyone thought the bow in the back was just darling! The only con I have is that the straps were too long but I run into this a lot, so I think it's just my body type. I had to pin all 4 down to shorten them.

I got so many compliments on this dress!! I wish I owned it so that I could wear it again and again!
I got a size 2 and the next size up was not available, but I definitely didn't need it. It really fit like a glove, and with heels, the length looked perfect on me; I was worried about the length because of my height. The only downside to the dress was that the bust was a little tight. The material just isn't stretchy, so it fits exactly to you. This really didn't bother me though because I don't have a bigger bust.

I wore this dress for my daughter's christening
Love the dress! Gorgeous color. Slightly snug across the bust, so I ended up sizing up and wearing the 4; even though a size 2 fit me everywhere else. I am a 32G though, so I run into this with dresses that don't have a lot of stretch. Length of the dress is perfect. Details on back are gorgeous. Received many compliments and my mom even said "can you keep it??"

Beautiful dress, simple & classy!
Love the shape and color, very flattering. I usually wear a 2 but had to size up because of the tighter bust. One con was the fastener that usually holds the bra strap in place was broken, so my bra strap was sticking out the whole event. I would recommend having a strapless bra ready in case. Very comfortable too!

Fun wedding in Nashville!
Loved this classy dress! Happy I went with the 2 (vs. the 4) since I have a smaller bust (32B), and this dress looks great on an hourglass figure. Great material, loved the pockets, and I could twirl around on the dance floor all night long! The bow on the back was a nice detail, and I received many compliments throughout the night.
