Cute But Too Big

I was so excited when this dress came but when I put the small on it was too big all over. I got the small to avoid it being too tight in places but it ended up being big all over. Showed an awkward amount of side boob and wish I could have worn a strapless bra with it. Also hit on an awkward place on my shin so I decided to just pass. Beautifully made though!

Runs true to size but tight in hips

Gorgeous amazing beautiful dress. Came new w rage. Based on reviews and previous MH experience I ordered small. It fit great in the bust even on my 34/36 D bust, however I do a lot of squats/cycling and have athletic glutes and thighs and it was very tight only in that area. Everything else was great but it pulled tight around my butt. I could wear it but when I get it again (which I will, so amazing and sturdier/dressier than other MH shirt dresses on rtr) I will try medium. If you are flatter bottomed in my size a small will do well but those with butts go for a medium!

Fits weird all over

Too big in the chest and stomach but tighter in the hips. I think you need to be a string bean to wear this dress or be ok with a lot of side boob....

Bright fun dress for every day or vacation!

Love the bright colors, such a fun dress! Met a friend for a casual weekday lunch, and the dress was perfect for the occasion. Because the armholes are a little large, I wore a bandeau top underneath to keeps the girls covered. Would rent again!

This dress screams: Finally it's summertime!

I wore this dress during the daytime to my college 10 year reunion is southwest Virginia. I felt so playful and fun in it and a little like sherbet ice cream!

Cute but not for everyone

I was hesitant to rent this because of some of the reviews. I was super happy it fit but the cut of the top is interesting. I am very flat chested so I didn't have a problem, but you probably would if you had a bigger chest. It is cut very narrow. That being said, the material is super high quality, the colors are bright and fun and I received tons of compliments - even from strangers! Loved wearing this and would rent again!

Disappointing

I loved the pattern and thought this dress had lots of potential, but it wasn't even wearable. There is serious side boob so wearing a bra isn't possible. That's great if you're a model but not if you have bigger boobs. My husband laughed at me and said it was terrible. Super disappointed!

I REALLY did not want to send this one back!

I loved this dress, the colors are super vibrant and the pattern is amazing! Worn for a daytime birthday event at a distillery. I got compliments all day, as well as additional compliments on photos from the event! I ordered a S and an XS due to reviews saying it runs large, but the XS didn't come due to an issue at the distribution center. I liked the way the small fit. I will admit that it does show a bit of side boob and it was definitely a maxi on me (5'3") as opposed to a midi like on the model, but I actually liked it better as a maxi. Highly recommended!

Didn't wear

Didn't wear because couldn't figure out the bra. Strapless didn't work because of arm holes. Would have needed a cute racerback that I didn't mind showing in the right color.

Loved this dress and the colors but it wasn't flattering. I think you need to be super thin and have a small chest for this to look good

Adorable sundress, so fun to wear!

I wore this around NYC on a Sunday and ended up going to a Broadway matinee in it. I loved the beautiful loud colors and just felt so great wearing it! I'm normally a 2 and found the XS to be perfect -- as you can see in the photo it was almost a maxi on me, but the fit was narrow enough that I didn't feel overwhelmed by fabric.

RTR Team Review

Size down! This was very comfortable but a bit too low on the sides, had to wear without a bra. Colors and material were GORGEOUS.

Love the colors!

I loved this dress for a summer Rehearsal Dinner! I am small on the top (3B) and slightly wider in the hips/booty area. After reading all the reviews I went with a Medium. It was slightly hip hugging but not enough to bother you. The top, with a strapless bra, was perfect! If you have hips and a booty and not comfortable with clothing showing your figure I would size up. Had so much fun I forgot to take a picture! Guess that means I will have to rent it again!!

Love this dress so much

This dress is amazing, I wore it 3 times on vacation. Touring with cute white sneakers, walking an outdoor park with flats and out to dinner with heels. It's bright and fun and a great vacation dress. The only negative is that it wrinkles pretty easily, that's just the material, but if you can get over that you'll love it

Vacation head turner

Wore this a few times on vacation - dressed up with a blazer for dinner and to the beach with flip flops. Comfortable and got so many compliments from strangers. Hips are a bit narrow but otherwise the fit is spot on.

Big in the top, tight across the hips

I really, REALLY wanted this dress to knock it out of the park but it's not a five star dress. The top runs big (i'm small chested anyway) with low hanging armpit holes. Across the hips was a bit tight on me too, and I had the proper undergarments on. The print and cut and length of this dress is so amazing it's unfortunate that the fit wasn't exactly right. I want to give it another try but I'm not sure I'll be able to make it work.

Was too tight in the waist and hips, if I had sized up it would have been huge in the chest. Just not for me.

Perfect Summer Dress

Absolutely loved this dress. Loose fitting, but still flattering. I have ZERO chest so the low armpits weren't an issue, but not sure how it would fit on ladies with s chest. Sticky bra might be your only option.

This dress is super cute and the colors are amazing. My issues with it was that fabric gets wrinkly so easily. Even just sitting down causes wrinkles.

Cute & Colorful

This dress was so colorful and fun. It fit well, light and airy. It fell straight and perfect, not too tight or awkward in fit. My only recommendation is bring bra options if traveling. The sides of my strapless bra showed through the arm holes. Obviously not so noticeable that I didn't wear it. I would wear this again.

Fun colors and perfect for summer

Fun long dress that is airy, comfortable, and cute! I loved the pattern and colors on this dress. Could wear it without a bra or a bralette (the sides cut low, so a regular bra would most likely show). Casual but still stylish enough to wear to a special event.

Bright and versatile

As a shorty, this midi dress was more of a maxi, but that worked out just fine for me. I wore it to work, a baby shower, and out on the weekend. Super soft fabric with a little bit of give. I wore it sans bra because the arm holes are a little too open on the side. A lacy bralette would probably work too.

Not for hips

I've got hips and a large butt and this dress pulled tight around my thighs. I couldnt wear it, which was a total bummer because the print is gorgeous.

Fun but not great

Love the vibrant colors and casual length but it loses points for the neckline making me wear a bralette. Also the slits were showing a lot of wear/small tearing and the hips area in the lining was pretty tight on me. I was planning on wearing it in Disneyworld but instead opted to wear it on the plane.

Did not wear -- fit is odd

I loved loved loved this dress, the fabric, the cut, the colors. But! I did not wear it as it was waaaay to big on top and stretched tight at the hips. I am pear shaped but pretty slender so I rarely have an issue this extreme. Too bad.

Perfect

I tend not to wear spaghetti straps to work but bc this has a high neck I felt totally fine and work appropriate. It's comfortable, loose but flattering. Fabric wrinkles easily, but not messy looking. Would def rent again.

Have boobs? You will need a bandeau!

If you have any boob at all, chances are you will need a bandeau, ideally in a fun color -- I didn't have one on hand, so I didn't wear. But I might rent again knowing what I know. I'm a 10-12, can often do a medium and almost always a large...next time I rent I might do an XL, as it wasn't quite as loose as I wanted. Super soft, and great colors. I'll be better prepared next time!

Large up top and snug at hips

I LOVED this dress the minute I brought it out of the bag. The colors are bright and fun and the material is fantastic! Loads of compliments. The only thing that bothered me (not enough to not wear) was that the dress was huge up top and I'm quite busty, then straight through the body (loose at midsection) and fit (me) quite snug at the hips which felt a bit awkward. Material has no stretch. Still loved it!

Beautiful colors and print

This dress is basically a potato sack but the pattern and colors are SO GORGEOUS that it's almost worth it.of it weren't for The arm holes which are hug. I imagine it really only works for small busts because just about any bra will show. I wore this with a denim jacket over and a strapless bra that definitely peeked out. It is very comfortable and soft.
