Absolutely amazing!!

The straps kept falling off so I ended up just tucking them in. I wear size 34D so the chest was a little snug, but overall perfect and flattering.

I graduated in this dress!

It was a gorgeous dress, but not for the busty, I'm afraid. I was happy to have my gown over top, as I was too embarrassed to be showing so much skin in front of family. Perfect pattern and cut for a slimmer less curvy girl, though!

This was an even prettier dress in person.

I wanted to like this dress on, but I could barely zip it and it pulled at the bust. I would think about renting the next size up, though.

Pretty festive dress

Straps are too long. And dress came with one strap with a tear.

So many compliments!

This dress was very cute and super flattering especially if you have a little tummy or booty you want to hide. The only problem was that the straps were too long and I had to pin them so they would stay up and to keep my boobs from falling out. I would definitely rent this dress again!

Cute dress with a great pattern

Dress fit very well. Super flattering. Received a ton of compliments on it during my bridal shower. Would recommend. Straps are an inch plus too long and had to be pinned.

Fun retro feel

Very pretty dress, the only negative was the straps were way too long. My back up size came with a broken strap that somebody pinned back into place, and I ended up pinning both the straps as well. Other than that, the dress fit well and was easy to dance in! People loved it!

I absolutely loved this dress! I received a ton of compliments and felt ultra-feminine like a 1950's housewife. Very flattering and comfortable. I ended up wearing the smaller of the two sizes I ordered. Would rent again!

Great dress, runs large

I was expecting to be a 4 but the 2 is a little large for me. The straps are a bit long too. Great silhouette but maybe for someone a with a little more space between their boobs and shoulders than i have.

This dress was great for a rehearsal dinner dance. It's lightweight cotton, but thick enough that it's not see-through. I have an hourglass body - 34D, 5'8" and about 145 lbs. I'm usually an 8, but ended up wearing the size 6 and it fit everywhere perfectly. The strap was broken so I needed to bring it to my tailor for a quick fix, but otherwise it was clean and in good shape. Very easy to dance in and completely flattering. I'd rent it again!

Too.....

Super cute print but the top did strange things to my chest. Flattened rather than, ahem, enhanced. I'm 5'9" and the skirt was just a inch or two too short. And the skirt was just a bit too full...Sadly I returned it without wearing it....

It perfectly suited the occasion & matched my hat (of course!)

I wore this for a Kentucky Derby party. It was perfect for the occasion and I received many compliments. My only complaint (which has been mentioned by other reviewers) is that the straps were definitely too long. I wore my back-up (smaller) size, and I still had to pin the straps to keep my bra from peeking out. Luckily because it was a bit chilly, I ended up wearing a jacket, so you couldn't see the pins.

Bright and beachy!

I rented this for my daughter to wear to a retirement party. She looked amazing in it and received compliments all night! She's a little on the busty side and it was, in fact, a little large in the top.

Very short

I loved this dress but it was super short and I ended up not even wearing it. I'm 5'9 and was afraid to have a gust of wind or go up/down stairs! Otherwise, completely adorable. Size down!

Very cute, perfect for bridal shower at tea room

Tried on the 0 at RTR (pictured) and it ALMOST fit-- an inch unzipped at the top because boobs-- but there's no 2 and the 0 was unavailable on my day. The 4 fit well except, as everyone else said, the straps were too long and I felt pretty boobular. The straps on the 0 were the perfect length and the waist fit well too so consider the smaller size.

Wore this dress to an outside day wedding. It was perfect! Got so many compliments! I can wear a 4 or 6 in dresses, depending on the brand. The 4 fit perfectly, so I'd say its slightly larger than "fits true to size." It came to the middle of my knee, since I'm shorter than the model in the picture.

I absolutely love the print and bow detailing, but unfortunately I couldn't make the fit work so well. The straps are rather long as well as the length (I am short though, so that's probably just me). I'm normally a size 0 or 2 and the 0 was still rather loose on me. Doesnt work too well for petite girls!

Adorable

I rented this dress for a wedding. Super cute and fun, however VERY low cut and small in the bust area. I am 32D and it was not an appropriate dress for me to where anywhere! Also, I was a little surprised at the material. In the photo is looks as though there is a sheer to it. Unfortunately, it was just plain old cotton. As cute as this is, it did not fit so I had to return.

I wore this to brunch and got many compliments!

This dress is definitely for someone with a small chest. I could not wear a bra with it. I am only 5 feet tall, so the dress was a bit long, right to the knee. But with the revealing chest, I think it was a good balance.

I felt gorgeous at my red and white themed event!

The dress was really adorable but the chest is small for someone with a large bust. The 4 fit everywhere except my chest and I got one of those little clips for the back to shorten the straps. The waist was a little loose in the 6 but it still looked great. Very happy! Perfect for this vintage style party!

Great for a summer daytime party!

Fit a little right in the chest area which was fine with me. Definitely falls lower in person than it does on the model. I'm 5'6 and it hit my knees and kind of chopped me off. Overall an okay dress.

Feminine, but has fit problems

The dress has a beautiful feminine pattern and is, what I would consider, a traditional 'sun dress.' However, the bust was too tight and gave a slight boxy appearance to my figure. This would be a beautiful dress for most, but I wouldn't recommend it for a hourglass figure with a smaller chest.

Pretty, but an awkward fit

The straps were really long, but the bust was too small, so sizing either down or up would not work. I wouldn't recommend the dress to anyone petite, especially with a larger bust. My friend wound up wearing it: she has a long torso, a lot of space from her shoulder to her bust, and more of an athletic/slim build so the dress looked pretty on her! The fabric is not as fancy as it looks in the picture. Definitely a spring day time dress.

Adore this print, goes well with red shoes

Gorgeous dress, but everyone else is correct. the straps are very long. When you have big boobs that means they hang out. Be warned, I'm a DD and this dress squished my chest like little pancakes, even though it fit well everywhere else, I honestly looked super ridiculous but I was in Miami where nobody cares how much of your boob is out. Size up or stay away, this is best for C cups I think.

Great Dress!

This is the second time I've rented this dress. The first time I wore it, back in 2010, I wore this to a press party at an upscale fashion boutique, and felt like I fit right in. I rented the 10 and the 12 then, and wore the 10. The second time I rented it, in September 2013, I again rented the 10 and the 12 and wore the 12. Someone posted something about it not being a great dress for full-busted women adn I tend to think that's accurate. I felt like I was displaying my bust most of the night, which was a little odd. I am short, short-waisted and pear shaped, so the length on this and the full skirt was fantastic. It's also tremendously comfortable and light cotton, terrific for 90-degree-plus days in Houston's never-ending summers. The straps had a tendency to constantly fall off my shoulders, which I hated, but I'm sure that may have been fixed with safety pins, which I didn't have. I say it runs a little small because it's a pretty tight fit for a 12, but beautiful. Loved the print and the little bow detail on the bodice. Absolutely recommend this!

I got a TON of compliments on this dress. I just loved it - rented it for a double event day - my daughter’s moving up ceremony and a dressy summer barbecue for a coworker. It was a litttttttle tight, but looked great. I wore the small.

I got this dress for a vintage themed wedding and it was a hit. It runs a bit small, I'm usually between a 4 and a 6 and the 4 was okay, except that the straps would fall off my shoulders every once and a while. Otherwise, I wish I owned this dress, so flirty and flattering, and just cute.

Loved the Southern styling of this dress!

Absolutely loved this dress. It is so classic and girly. I was able to go down a size because I am smaller on top - the full skirt is very forgiving and makes your waist look tiny. I had to give it a good pressing before I wore it, but that is to be expected with the cotton fabric. Looked great with nude pumps and pearls.

The dress was very nice, and definitely channels the 50s girl in you. However, the top spaghetti straps don't work so well with the dress...ended up wearing it as a strapless.

I rented this dress for a wedding tea, but was unable to wear it. The top of the dress was big on the sides but tight across the bust, resulting in an unflattering fit. I was sad because the print was so cute! Definitely made for very small busts!

This was the 1st dress I have rented from renttherunway.com, and I am absolutely in love. I wore the dress to a friend's wedding (beach wedding) and received so many compliments! The dress is very true to size and fit like it was made for me. I felt very beautiful and classy in the dress without being overtly sexy.

I absolutely loved wearing this dress! I was a bridesmaid in an outdoor Cape Cod wedding and the bride wanted us to all pick our own colorful dresses. I had some trouble with the delivery, but it was worth it. I was voted best dressed :) One thing is, it's loose around the lower abdomen, so if you slouch you may look like you have a baby bump.. but if you keep good posture, it's amazing!

Rented for Rehearsal Dinner

I rented this and the Sail Away dress for my rehearsal dinner. I ended up going with the Sail Away dress as this one was just too busty for my large chest at such a family function. Everything else fit perfect and I really really loved this dress. If only I had a smaller chest! For you bustier broads that just have to give it a try - plan for cleavage!

This dress was an amazing fit! I have a large bust but a smaller waist so sometimes dresses don't fit me perfectly but this one absolutely did! I got so many compliments on it! It's great for a summer event or even a really cute date. I want to rent it again!

.

I wore this to an outdoor summer wedding and it was perfect. I got lots of compliments and felt really good in it. I'd say the fit is true to size if you're a C cup or more. Any smaller in the bust you might want to try a size smaller than usual, if you're slim enough in the middle.

Pretty dress for afternoon out

I hired this for an afternoon at the Polo. Took a size 2 and 4. 2 was a little large around the top and 4 was way too big on me. 2 could have been a little tighter around the top. I was very comfortable wearing the dress and had a fun outing!
