Not long enough

I'm 5"10 and needed the long, even with flats. Color and style are super cute though. Wore with black Prada ankle boots.

So unique!

Such a cute dress ! I definitely needed a size 6... I ordered the 4 thinking it would be loose up top but it actually buttons snugly all the way up to the bust. The top two buttons were pulling on me but I could get away with it because I had the bow tied right in front of them.

Very interesting pattern.

I was really looking forward to wearing this dress. In the picture it looks like an electric blue but in person it is actually a deeper green background. The material is a bit heavier than I expected. It does not have a light airy feel and wears more like a formal gown. The empire waist is tight around the ribcage with NO stretch. The arms are a bit restrictive. That noted it is a beautiful pattern and color. I did get lots of complements but I would not recommend for warm weather or an outdoor party.

Felt like a star

The prior reviews about the waist being tight are true. The fabric is a little heavier so it was perfect for the wedding I attended on Saturday. The fit is more flattering if you have a bigger bust also. I loved this dress!

Fun and comfortable for an outdoor event

This dress was perfect for an outdoor event in the spring. I was covered enough to avoid a draft, but the material was light enough that I wasn't sweating (70 degrees). I had to wear 5in wedges in order to keep the dress from dragging (I'm 5'5") and it was small in the bodice (size up), but as long as you're fine with heels and going up a size, it's awesome. I received many compliments and enjoyed the fun print.

Love the cut and the pattern

This dress is snug, but it has to be to lay properly at the bottom. Very unique and well made. It's hard to tell in the pictures and descriptions, but the dress is fully lined. Would definitely rent again.

I loved this dress so much! I wore it to a baby shower and received lots of compliments.

I'm busty and wore a camisole, there were a few times buttons popped open and the tie was a little tight but I managed just fine.

Beautiful dress, gorgeous colors, but very tight in the rib cage

I was so excited to wear this dress, but when I ordered it, it didn't have any user reviews, so I was a little nervous about the fit. The fit was fine overall, but the rib cage was super tight. I ended up wearing the 10 due to the ribcage fit. I'm tall, so the 10R was a little short on me, but it worked with my flats. I wore this to a brunch, so I ended up using fashion tape to make the neckline a little higher for a family event. Overall, I really liked this dress- it moved really well, but just wasn't super comfortable in the ribs.

Fun, flowy design

I'm 5 1/2 months pregnant so the fit was a little snug on me around the waist, but if I didn't have my bump the fit would be perfect. Roomy boob area, but even if you don't fill it out it lays nicely. Overall I really loved this dress! It made me feel glam but still appropriate for work. My husband really loved it too, which made it even better! Btw, I wore flat sandals and the length was only a touch too long. Got away wearing it without stepping on it, and I'm not very tall!

This dress is so fun! I usually wear a 2 but after reading other reviews I got the 4. Wore it for a weekend away in LA. Got so many compliments.

Fun dress but runs a little small

I love this dress... It is super fun and unique! The top button on the waist was a little tight and was pulling when I tried it on so I sent it back. I should have gone with the 4 and I'm sure it would have been fine!

70s Memorial Day Party

This dress was so fun! It's hard to wear a bra and definitely shows your chest so just be prepared for that. The material was a little heavier than I expected, but still comfy.

Felt like a princess in this dress!

This dress is amazing! Based on other reviews, I went up a size and the 6 was prefect. It was snug in the waist and baggy in the chest, but the overall look was unbeatable! The print is beautiful, and the full skirt is so flattering. I was able to wear a regular front-hook bra and it didn't show at all. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because this dress was a bit more "worn" looking than anything else I've received from RTR. Got compliments all night!

Fun maxi that has great navy star shooting in ombré effect

Cuts low. Wore with and without something underneath depending on mood. Edges dragged a bit on ground bc I wore flats. Overall fun weekend dress. Size 4 just fits someone with a size 34 cup.

Gorgeous! So many complements!

The dress fit me perfectly. It was a bit tight in the rib cage area but wasn't a deal breaker. Length was perfect too. I wore it with flat sandals and the dress just brushed the floor. I got a bunch of complements on it. It buttons all the way down so you can unbutton as many buttons as u want if you want to show some leg. Loved it! Wish I could buy it!

Everyone loved this dress, and so did I!

This dress got a ton of compliments from everyone I saw the day I wore it, so I wore it again when I went out of town a couple of days later! :). The fabric is exquisite and lined to look and feel even more classy. The pattern is fun but not to showy. It is fitted in the rib cage area but everywhere else fit like a glove. I'm 5'9 and this dress is long enough to wear 3 inch heels, even though I opted for flats. It does cut down very low, but cover the chest well enough to not look too boobiliciius! Haha. Highly recommend this dress.

Such a unique and fun dress!

I wore this dress to a party / concert that my work was holding and it was perfect for this type of event. I got compliments on it all night. It is super fun and you can make it conservative but keeping it buttoned all the way down or unbutton it a little to show off some leg. The top shows a little bit of cleavage but not too much. And it's such a fun print and unique style of dress! It's true to size and very comfortable to wear.

Nice dress

Liked it... Didn't love it. It's not as forgiving in the hips as most maxis. The wrap part is kind of tough to get it all laying right. It just wasn't my favorite but I did get lots of compliments!!

Nice dress.

I took a chance and ordered the 4 when the 6 became unavailable. While I did get it on, I could not wear it. The rib cage and hips were too tight. I would have popped buttons. I need a 6 or even 8.

Perfect 4th of July holiday dress! Patriotic and Fun!

I'm not the red white and blue bikini type of girl on holidays but this dress for the 4th was a perfect way to be festive and not over the top! I wore it for work and a BBQ to kick off the holiday weekend and got compliments all day. It really elongates your body and is slimming. It is also very comfortable and you can always loosen the tie if you eat a little too much! The dress is very different and would be great for many types of events, not just the Summer holidays! The buttons up the front make it versatile giving you the option to show a little leg at a party or be buttoned all the way up for work!

Perfect dress for Fourth of July!

This dress is perfect for a festive summer party. The pattern was really fun but the cut was a lot more interesting and sophisticated than ur average maxi dress. It is a little small around the waist but for me it fit perfect.

Fun maxi

Summery maxi with cute front tie. Per reviews I ordered a 4R (usually an xs-s/0-2) and it fit well. Loose fitted top (it's supposed to fall like this) but tighter waist (sizing up is perfect). Quality material and very flattering. I tied the dress once in the front and wrapped it around my waist like the model. Looks better in person than in photos!

I liked this dress but it was a bit worn out and also ripped at the seems. I had to sew it before I wore it. But it's a cute dress and was great for a Saturday party.

Stand out style

I wore this for the 4th of July, and thought the pattern went really well with the theme. The middle even has a reddish tint. I liked the fit and style and the tie top made it easily fit. The only issue I had was that some of the middle buttons would come undone pretty easily without me noticing right away.

Perfect dress for a night of fireworks!

This dress would be perfect for any night out but was especially so for watching a fireworks show on the 4th of July. It is on theme without looking tacky. It fit well and was low cut in the front that gave it a sexy feel. But it didn't feel inappropriate because of the length. The material was a bit on the heavy side so I held up the bottom as I walked and when I sat down. I received several compliments while wearing.

First full length I loved

I have never till now found a maxi length dress I loved. This dress fit perfect. Made me look like I had a bigger chest than I do and hid the stomach. I liked the cut out in front. I didn't get to wear it out as it was a bit dressier than what I was looking for for the night but will definitely be renting it again. The one thing I worried about was the few buttons I had to do on top seemed not quite secure in staying closed, so wondering if they would have held if I wore it all night. Oh and I'm 5'10" and the length still made it to my ankles.

Loved this dress, bump friendly !

I rented this dress for a girls trip to Vegas. I'm 20 weeks pregnant and my normal size is a 6 and the 8 fit. Not very much stretch and a bit wrinkly but I loved the way it looked on! If you're expecting I suggest sizing up. I did not wear a bra but you can wear a sticky bra if you like. The buttons are great because you can choose how much leg you want to show.

Cute dress but not for me.

The boobs were way too big for me it looked ridiculous on. If I sized down it'd have been too small in the lower waist and booty (which was more fitted than I expected. Super long. Definitely great quality and a pretty dress, just opposite fit for my body type.

Beach Wedding!!

I had rented another maxi dress on RTR, but the night before I received an email saying that the dress was unfortunately unavailable and they would help me choose another dress with no extra charge. I chose this dress and it was promptly sent to me for the beach wedding I was attending. Not only was I impressed with RTR's service, but I received so many compliments on this dress!! It was sexy but provided enough coverage for a windy beach wedding. This may have been my favorite rental yet!!

At risk for a wardrobe malfunction...

There are so many things I loved about this dress! The way it flowed, the low neckline, the print, and the way you can choose the amount of leg showing based on how many buttons you leave undone. As other reviews stated, it does run long if you want to wear with flats. I'm 5'6 and ordered the 4R. It dragged with sandals so I wish I would have gone with the 4S/P. Also, be careful when carrying children in it. When I sat my 4 year old I was carrying down I noticed 3 buttons had popped open and my underwear was exposed. Luckily it happened in our hotel room and not at dinner!

Beautiful but long!

This was very pretty, but a bit long on me. My bust was held in, but I did wear a full coverage bra. When lying down the buttons popped open... I wouldn't rent this again, mostly because of the length, but I did get compliments on it.

Dress up or down, absolutely gorgeous

True to size and very flattering. Definitely needed an adhesive bra, and was rather long, but other than that it was perfect. Wore it for a couple of shows, was easy to move around in and both dressy and casual enough to pull off on stage with a group of guys!

Fun & Flowy

Loved the length of the dress. Having a lot to do at a recent wedding I needed to wear flats. This dress length was perfect to hide my flats. Some may consider it too long if on the shorter side. The material was heavier than I expected for a maxi dress. It was a little heavy for an outdoor wedding. Also the first two buttons of the Skirt portion pop openly easy if moving around a lot. Otherwise receives lots of compliments on the look of the dress and the ombré effect of the cascading star design.
