Beautiful but sheer

Great fit and dress, rented for everyday wear and it was a bit sheer. If I were going on holiday I would totally rent again and pair with a beautiful swimsuit!

Timeless, flattering and well-made dress!

I absolutely LOVE this dress! I rented it for a warm weather vacation. It is extremely well-made and very flattering because of the tie in the back. I have a large chest (34F) and it wasn't too low-cut. I am normally a 6-8 and normally find that Mara Hoffman runs small, but this dress actually runs a touch large - the 6 fit me with a little room to spare. As other reviewers have noted, it is somewhat sheer, but that doesn't bother me because I will be wearing it over a swimsuit. Love this dress!

Cute dress!

Super cute for summer/spring. Only complaint was that it wasn't the most flattering. Kinda made my lower half look large.

Great white dress

This fit well and at 20 weeks pregnant I took my pre-pregnancy size. The tie sits nicely above the bump! Can be worn for casual days or summer nights.

N/A

I wear a size 34DD and there was not enough room for my chest in this dress. Boobs ended up looking flat so I couldn't wear this out.

Lovely summer dress

This fit really nicely and was very comfortable. My only complaint was that it was a little too low cut in the front even though I am quite large chested.

Mormon Dress

I did really like this dress, but it made me think of Mormon undergarments. I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing. It's just very plain. It fits as expected and the material is great for a baptism.

Simply perfect

This dress is cotton so it was light and airy! I wore it to church and then straight to a large (very hot) car show and had that perfect "not trying" but still "sooo beautiful" look going on! I'll definitely rent again

This run really large

Runs large throughout the body and you will need to wear a slip.

RTR Stylist Review

I love this feminie dress by Mara Hoffman. Running true to size with no stretch, I recommend wearing your true size for your primary size and going down for your back-up. This style is fitted throughout the midsection with comfortable room at the hips. It works great for all cup sizes. You are not able to wear a standard bra with this dress so you should wear a NuBra or strapless bra since it has a low neckline. At 4’8”, the length hit floor length on me and was sadly too long for me. I really wanted to love this dress, however, I found the bell sleeves to be overwhelming for my petite frame. The material is somewhat sheer so I highly recommend wearing a nude slip underneath. Overall this is a great summer look! Pair with wedges and a layered necklace to complete your outfit.

This all white dress was way too much for me. It was too long and too white...I felt like a nurse! I usually love Mara Hoffman so I was very disapponted, I wouldnt rent this again

Too long for me

I'm a petite (5'2), so it looks like a maxi dress on me. Also the balloon sleeve looks a bit exagerrated. 3 star for the nice fabric

Great Dress, Great Shape and white, but not very very see-through. Excellent Fit. Loving what this designer is doing.

Definitely loved the fit--except it was longer than I thought. Fun dress.

Flattering but long. Was really good for the ever changing weather--long sleeves but not too hot.

Basic summer cotton

I didn't like the fit of this dress. I'm 5'4" so maybe I was too short since it hit me below tea length and not ankle length. I also didn't think it was very flattering.

See through

My husband thought I looked like a Laura Ingalls Wilder cosplayer, but I loved the fit and the style. Unfortunately it's pretty sheer (outline of the pocket and undies and the bra and or the slip sheer), and the V hit a little too low for my current slip. I loved it but didn't love it enough to buy a whole new slip just to wear it out of the house.

Perfect for springtime in the desert

I brought this dress with me as a backup option on a trip to Palm Springs and I ended up wearing it three nights in a row! It was perfect for the evening when the desert was just starting to cool off. The tie detail at the waist was flattering, and at 5'6" the hem hit me at the perfect midi length.
