Obsessed. Top pick ever.

The amount of stranger comments, bridal store workers, and social media comments I got ok this dress was insane. It's so adorable and unique and perfect for the Arizona weather I was in while helping my best friend weeding dress shop! It gets a little wrinkly throughout the day so try to steam or iron well!! It's super comfortable

I was complimented by someone who rarely compliments!!

This dress was beautiful!! I occasionally had to readjust the "girls" but overall the dress was comfortable. I felt very pretty!

In love with this bright gem!

I rented this to bring along on vacation and fell in love. I have rented this brand before and a 6 was perfect on me. This time, the 6 ran large... I had a lot of room in the rib cage. Others said they could not wear a bra, but I was able to... just got one that is thinner in the middle then I actually tied the dress around the middle of the bra. It was perfect and stayed in place all night. The material is not stretchy at all, and does wrinkle easily. But overall this is a stunner and I will rent again in a 4. BTW... NWT! Woohoo!

Fun and comfortable!!

This dress fit perfectly. The tie is adjustable, which was helpful for me! The fabric is high quality and soft. I wore this on a beach vacation.

Loved the concept, but not for large chest

I was absolutely obsessed with this dress when I saw it online! I ordered it 3 weeks prior to my cruise just to insure I would have it. Unfortunately when I went to wear it I just didn't feel as comfortable or confident as I had hoped. I was constantly worried about showing too much cleavage, so larger chest girls beware. The pattern and idea are absolutely stunning though. Does wrinkle easily.

Baby Shower perfection

This dress is to die for. The fabric is the perfect weight- not too heavy, not too thin. The top has little coverage so really only nipple covers will work underneath-- larger busts may have trouble with the top of this dress. I wore this 6.5 months pregnant to our baby shower. It was playful and sexy - but not overtly so. If I didn't have a growing belly and could still fit in this dress through the summer I would have purchased it!!!

The Girls did not approve

Sadly the girls barely fit into this dress. I wore it around the house for a few mins to do some vacuuming, but sadly too indecent to wear in public for anyone with bigger boobs.

Perfect for Miami!

Very true to size but thanks to the tie-front, it can be adjusted to your bust. Very flattering for my shape.

Fun brunch dress

I loooved this! I sized down bc I have a smaller bust, and didn't have to wear a bra. It's a tea-length dress, so you can wear whatever shoes you want with it. Very versatile - wore it to brunch the day after my wedding and got a ton of compliments

Day time perfection

Spent a day out in Havana wearing this adorable dress. So comfy and flattering. Cons: easy to wrinkle and showy if your busty but all in all great piece!

Absolute vacation perfection!

The dress was a perfect, bright vacation dress. The material was light, but thick enough to not need a slip. I received compliments from everyone all night and will definitely reorder. Fit true to size, but worth noting larger cup sizes may have a hard time- I wore it without a bra, I'm not sure how you can wear a bra with it.

Baby shower Fav!

I absolutely loved this dress!!! I wore it to my baby shower at 37 weeks. The colors were vibrant and so fun! I will rent this again post baby! I am normally a size 6/8 and while the 8 buttoned the 10 fell a lot nicer over my belly. I wore a sticky bra and was slightly uncomfortable with the amount of cleavage I'm sporting but chalked it up to part of pregnancy and rolled with it. (It did come with the top button missing but my mom was able to find a matching button at joanns and sew it on)

Palm Springs Perfection

I rented this dress for my birthday weekend in Palm Springs with my fiancé. I wore it one night for a more casual dinner and LOVED it so much I wore it the next day all over town. It's so fun and perfect for any fun occasion! Definitely wishing I could keep this... I was afraid it wouldn't fit up top because most reviews complained, but it fit perfectly!

Loved this dress. So much so that I am thinking about purchasing. My only issue was the straps were a little big for me.

Pop of color

I loved this dress. I agree with all the other comments about boobs hanging out but if you are okay with that it's an amazing dress. I wore it out on a hot summer day to run some errands and I felt so confident in it. Loved the colors and style.

Pretty summer dress!

This dress fits mostly TTS; it was the tiniest bit tight in the ribcage (but I tend to be a bit wider there) and the length was a bit long for tea length. I ended up not getting the dress in time for the occasion I was attending so didn't wear it, but would definitely rent again for another event. It is bright and super cute!

So fun!

I wore this pregnant to my baby's "gender reveal" party at 21 weeks. Plenty of room for a baby bump! Loved this dress, but my chest didn't fill it out very well--need perfect sized breasts for this dress, not to big or too small. Otherwise, super fun for daytime and summer!

Garden party glamor!

Worn for a garden party, so I was outside all afternoon. Dress was comfortable and cool. It may have been my inexperience with Nubra or the dress, but I felt like I would want a little more coverage/support in the cleavage department. The dress straps were probably a bit too long- if about 1 inch shorter would have held everything up better. I would have had it altered if it was mine because otherwise very flattering!

Perfect for a vacation or summer party

The colors of this dress are amazing! It reminded me of being on vacation in the Caribbean, having so be on the beach. The length is a tad awkward for shorter gals, which is why I wore heels with it. Ladies with larges busts probably won't be able to wear this as it's very fitted in the chest and waist.

Felt like a million bucks in this dress!

This dress is soft, comfortable, moves with you... it's amazing! The pattern and colors are gorgeous. I got a ton of compliments. I wish I could buy it in black to wear all the time! I don't think large chested women would enjoy this unless you want to REALLY be on display. I am a 34B and just wore bandaids and it was perfect. I probably could've worn a size down but since you tie the knot yourself I was able to tie it super tight and make it work.

So glad I took a chance on this dress!

The length and keyhole and print had me on the fence with this dress but it ended up being one of my favorite rentals. Lightweight, comfortable, and perfect for the summer. Will rent again!

Wish I could keep this!

I wore this to a bridal shower and received endless compliments. It runs slightly large so I wore a 2 vs a 4 and it was so vibrant, comfortable and fun to wear. I would definitely recommend. Be aware of wrinkles very easily but if you can get over that, you'll love this dress!

My favorite dress I've rented so far!

Wore this to a concert in Chicago and received tons of compliments. The length was perfect for my short frame and it was fun and colorful. Perfect for any summer event! I have unlimited so I kept it for an extra week so I could wear it again because I loved it so much...didn't want to return!

1970s Orange Dreamsicle

I love Mara Hoffman and this one was no exception. Absolutely loved the fit and feel of this dress. Unfortunately one of the sizes I ordered was unable to be shipped to me due to a shipping delay, but the other size luckily fit perfectly and it was quickly resolved on customer services end by sending me another dress comparable in style and size to the one that I was unable to receive.

Wore this dress for a day out in NYC. It was perfect because it was comfortable and flowy. This allowed me to walk around the entire day feeling great and kept me cooled down. This dress is versatile and can be used for many occasions. Yet another great rental from RTR!

Cute print

Fit was perfect for someone my height- the only issue I had was with the bust because it was VERY low cut. Not recommended for someone with a smaller chest.
