The dress was too low in the back

The dress was too low for comfort in the back. The edge of the dress cut into my lower back.

Loved the dress

As others have said, this dress is tight around the rib cage and is not elastic at all so keep that in mind. I wore it outdoors on an 80 degree day and it was very comfy. I did buy a backless, U-shaped bra which worked perfectly. You will definitely need some sort of support because the fabric covering the chest is a little baggy especially if you are smaller in the chest. I am 5'8" about 155 and a B cup.

Fun casual dress!

I'm only 5'1 so this dress ran long on me. I went with the size 2 instead of the 4 to help with the length a bit as well as helping with the bust, and keeping everything in there. It was a fun dress. Great for my beach vacation

Longer than the photo implies.

The model must be 5'10" because when I put this on it fell down to my mid-shin. Just too much material down below the waist.

Loved this dress, very comfy and summery.

I would say to order your normal size and the size smaller because the part under the bust was snug, but I couldn't have gone bigger on the top because it wouldn't have supported the girls, and my they aren't petit either.

This dress was perfect for my birthday celebration in the Caribbean. The halter style kept me cool!

This dress was great for the summer; light and flowing and the style will help keep you cool in the summer heat. I received lots of compliments while wearing this dress!!

Perfect for an outdoor summer wedding

I had so much fun with this dress! My usual size (4) would have been fine but I opted to go a size down so that it wasn't as baggy in the chest. I didn't need a bra and everything stayed put. No tape needed. The length was also totally fine even though I'm only 5'0. One small note - the dress is silk and didn't really travel well. I had to steam it a little after it arrived to get some of the creases out.

Top half didn't fit :(

This was my back-up dress rental for a wedding. I didn't end up wearing it. I'm not what you'd call full-chested, and thought this might still look good with the deep V despite that. It could have, minus there is extra fabric at the bottom of the halter that I couldn't fill-out. Bonus for some, not so great for me.

Great dress for an outdoor summer party

This is a beautiful dress but the fit in the bust area is odd. It was a little baggy in some areas and tight in others. It would be better if it had built in cups.

BEAUTIFUL dress and so comfortable!

I absolutely LOVED this dress. It felt like my "Marilyn Monroe" dress :) just FYI, the top is cut VERY low. Even a strapless bra will not work with it. Other than that, this dress was perfect for an August wedding and I felt so amazing in it

Effortlessly beautiful! A very graceful dress.

This dress was amazing! I loved how it looked and felt. The fabric was a little worn and it had a few small holes but that's only because it's so delicate. The fabric was so light and airy! I wore it for my birthday tea party and it was perfect. Especially because it was 94 degrees that day and the tea room didn't have AC.... It was so flowy it made me want to twirl. The only con is that you totally can't wear a bra with this dress. Don't even try. On the bright side the halter is really supportive so I didn't need one.

I felt beautiful, classy, and sexy wearing this dress. It was perfect for a summer wedding!

Like a side perfect for a summer wedding. It was light and perfect for dancing the night away. The only thing that was a con was the straps for the neck got loose thought the night so I had to keep tying it but other than late I would definitely rent this dress again. I also had to purchase a u shaped bra that I found at target because the cut was low.

Comfortable and gorgeous color!

This dress is super flattering and shows just the right amount of cleavage and skin. The halter was really flattering and the drape of the dress was very easy to move in and forgiving. The color was more of a coral than an orange that I thought from the pics. Loved this dress and would rent again!

Though this dress runs long and a little big, because it is a halter, I was able to get away with tying it just right. It's gorgeous in person, so flattering and light-weight. LOVE LOVE LOVE it! Absolutely beautiful.

Light, flirty and fun! And a tad bit sheer...

Loved wearing this dress to a summer wedding in L.A. I ended up going with the smaller size because the top fit better. As a heads up, you will probably need special undergarments for this dress. The back is lower than a traditional bra and since it is a tad bit sheer you will probably want to go with a nude variety on the bottom ;) I was more aware of the sheer aspect during the cookout in the day, and mostly forgot about it by the reception at night. The dress is also incredibly light-- so light it almost blew up into the food table on multiple occasions. Good to know if you are going to a windy destination! Overall, I would recommend this dress as a great fun and flirty option for a wedding and/or summer/spring party. Got lots of compliments!

Beautiful for a summer wedding

This dress is beautiful for a summer wedding. It definitely ran large for the small-busted, though. I wore the 0 and the chest area was still a bit baggy, and the cut makes it pretty much impossible to add any sort of padding. The dress is also longer than I expected, but the length helped balance out the plunging neckline and low back. The dress was very floaty, which looked beautiful, but I almost had a few Marilyn moments, so it might not be the best choice for an outdoor event. I paired the dress with nude pumps, a gold clutch, and straw hat with gold details.

Great lightweight dress for a hot summer wedding

I wore this to a wedding in June where the temperature was about 100 degrees. This dress was perfect because the material is very thin and light. The color was beautiful and I got several compliments and felt comfortable all day/evening. I was hoping to be able to wear a strapless bra, but that turned out not to be the case as the V is very deep in the front. But I ended up going with no bra and it was fine. All in all, was very happy with this dress and would definitely wear again!

Great, easy service

This is a beautiful dress. But I felt it was a bit too low cut for the family wedding I went to and had to put some serious tape on it (it definitely channels 'some like it hot/monroe'. If you're bustier, I'd be cautious (I couldn't wear a bra and had to do lots of fashion tape). I still ended up wearing it though, and given it was 90+ degrees, it was definitely the coolest dress you could ask for (and you'll enjoy a lovely twirl on the dance floor). It's also very sheer. I felt it ran big as the 6 was a bit big on me... and I didn't order 4 as my backup size.

Flirty, comfortable, and unforgettable. I would recommend this to my close friends.

I loved this dress and how I felt in it. Many people complemented me on the look. Pros: Light weight, comfortable, flew in the wind, good for pear shaped bodies, great summer dress. Cons: Size was a little large, translucent, would not wear on cooler days. I wore a U shaped, backless bra and wished it provided a little more cleavage but was still happy with the overall look. The halter ties are VERY long and give you a little room to play with if you want more or less showing up front (since the cut is so deep you end up showing more). It came out of the shipping box ready to wear; I didn't have to steam or iron. I would recommend this dress to a friend.

This dress was breezy and beautiful for a beach wedding.

The top was large for any one with a small chest, but ordering small helped to mind any gaps. Overall, a unique and pretty!

The dress was really comfortable, and nice and light for an outdoor summer wedding.

I did wear spanx under it to keep the dress skimming nicely in all the right places. It is, however, prone to a a bit of static cling, so bring a dryer sheet! I would get a pair of self adhesive something to pull up the ladies as I did not have anything that wouldn't have shown, I went without and because I am a B/C - i almost didn't have enough to fill it out. I think these would have worked had I been able to find them in time: https://www.renttherunway.com/shop/intimates/straplessadhesiverevealbra Other than that, a great dress! - in the absence of a nude slingback (because all I could find were patent), I went with gold. Worked great! Oh, and the lipstick is Avon Caring Coral. Matches perfectly.

Odd-fitting dress and not very flattering!

I love the style of this dress but it just didn't work - the bust is oddly shaped and very large, so unless you have big boobs (that you don't mind showing off a LOT) it just won't fit you. I assumed because it was a halter that this would be more adjustable, but no matter how tight you tie it the fabric bunches out at the sides and it's very unflattering. There's not much support at all, the fabric is light and flimsy with no cups to make it fit. It was also too long on me which was unflattering as well, but I'm short so it might look great on someone tall. I couldn't wear it, which is the first time that's happened with RTR!

Wore this for day after my wedding family gathering

Dress was super comfortable...flowy and super light. It's hot here in AZ but I stayed cool in this. The dress was ok...I could have used a smaller size..but overall..a pretty summer dress. I would say its a little more casual than it appears and the color a little more subdued/faded. If you are busty and they are real..you may have to tie the straps around your neck a little tighter than is comfy for several hours. Overall, it fit the bill for a summer family gathering at my house!

Beautiful flattering dress that got tons of compliments.

All the reviews about running large in the bust area rang true. I normally wear an 8 but wore the 6 in this dress. It got a little snug around the ribs by the end of the night but the 8 was too big all around. I wore it with nude sticky breast contour cups and felt comfortable the whole night. Overall a very fun color and felt beautiful.

Loved this dress! Very feminine

The plunging neckline and open back give this dress just the right amount of sexy but it's on the longer side so it's still classy. Be careful if you're attending an outdoor event as you'll be susceptible to having a Marilyn moment in this dress. You may want to order a size down. I usually wear a 4. I ordered a 4 and 6 and wished I had ordered a 2 and 4.

Rented for out of town wedding weekend wear

Dress is showing a little wear and tear. Runs very large in the bust. I am a 34 DD - 36D and it was so large and saggy in the bust that I looked like a small and poorly shaped B. Large across the back as well. There was no amount of tape that was going to be able to fix it! Went with a dress from my closet , and unfortunately had to return the other dress that I had rented for the weekend due to poor condition! :( . Fortunately RTR was able to overnight me one dress that did fit and looked nice enough for the occasion.

Great colors wish I had got larger size.

The halter is very skimpy. I held my bridesmaid bouquet up all night. It has no give in fabric. So err to the larger size. Lovely skirt very feminine just wish there were more fabric in the halter. Wore adhesive bra under as it is very low cut.

Couldn't wear- Not for big busts

The dress was really pretty and had great colors and light airy fabric. When talking to the stylist, I was most concerned about the bust area- whether it would fit and whether their would be enough support. I received hearty assurances that this dress was fine for my size. Upon receiving the dress, it was immediately clear this was not the case. It showed a very inappropriate amount of cleavage (as in barely covering the nipps- nothing was left to the imagination) and had next to no support. The dress was beautiful, but if you have a large chest you should look elsewhere- no matter what the stylists tell you. Luckily, my backup dress was great. And after a few emails to RTR customer service, they even refunded the cost of the backup dress.

Wore this to a rehearsal dinner.

Waaaay too low-cut. I had to button up my shirt to cover up because this dress was too flashy. Fortunately, it was a western-themed rehearsal dinner, so I was able to button up and tie a chambray shirt at my waist. Perhaps girls with smaller busts would do okay, but this wouldn't have worked for me if not for the chambray shift. The color, however, is very pretty and the swingy skirt was fun.

Really flowy and fun. Got lots of complements!

Fitting was a little small so I couldn't zip up the dress all the way but I actually just tucked the rest of the zippered part under and it just made a nice little V at the back of the dress which actually looked like it was meant to be there. I was not able to wear a bra with the dress because of the low cut back but that wasn't a problem.

Perfect for the mexico beach wedding I attended, bright and happy, but not too flashy for a guest

Excellent flow, great for dancing. The color went will with my olive skin tone, even pre-tan. I usually wear a six, but I needed the 8 for more coverage in the bust area ( 36DD), so the waist was a bit loose, but better to be comfortable for dancing. Wore with a pair of bronze Cole Haan espadrilles and the sparkly dangle earrings that came as my mystery bling.

This was really, really tight around the rib cage. The cut was low but comfortable, but clenched my ribs. I got a LOT of complements on the style. The melon/coral color was very becoming!

Beautiful Dress and Fun Flirty Fit

The dress runs a little small. Order up and take advantage of the halter top to get the right fit. The threads at the hem were unraveling a little as chiffon does. Loved the look and it was perfect for a summer mountain wedding.

Super fun and flirty dress. I wore it to a party I hosted on a very, very warm D.C. evening.

The dress definitely runs large. I'm almost ALWAYS a size 4, but the size 2 fit perfectly. I'm not super large chested, so I had to tie the top pretty tightly.
