Very low cut

I was looking for a dress for a vineyard wedding. This was just ok. I'm going to keep looking. I'm not sure if you can wear a bra with this dress. It is pretty low cut.

Perfect for a formal event

Love love love this dress. Embroidery and colors are amazing- lots of compliments. I sized up BC there were no reviews yet and I needed to wear for an event same day- but had some room, so I'd say it likely runs true to size. I am 5'2 and with low heels it was full length on me but didn't skim the ground.

Pretty but revealing

Very pretty, but the underdress is very short and the top made me feel exposed. Gorgeous lace, though!

Pretty details

I always wear a 4. This dress zipped but was very snug (to the point that it would've been uncomfortable to wear all day) and pinched the bra fat area of my sides/back

Beautiful dress, but for anyone ordering plus size or have larger boobs you might want to try up to 2 sizes bigger than normal.

Full coverage neckline, sheer below knee

I felt frumpy in this so I returned immediately. The bodice is full coverage and made me feel matronly. The skirt is sheer below the knee, which I didn't realize. I needed this for a black tie wedding and didn't feel like the sheerness at the lower skirt was appropriate.

A fun compliment-worthy dress!

I rented this dress to wear to a spring wedding on a vineyard in CA. I was wary because of the lack of reviews but this dress was truly awesome. I received compliments all night from both friends and other wedding guests. This dress is so unique and the embroidery is stunning and intricate. Note that this dress isn't floor length - I'm almost 5'9" and the dress hit at my ankles, but it worked with the style. For me it could be worn with or without a bra, but I recommend some fashion tape to keep the top in place. I didn't find it revealing as others commented. My only complaint was that the fabric chaffed my underarms a bit, but I was too busy partying and it didn't bother me until the next day! I definitely recommend renting it!

RTR is fast and easy to return.

This dress is BEAUTIFUL in person. I sized up because this dress does not have a lot of wiggle room and ya homegirl needed a little room to fit a couple cold ones. #WeddingWears The top was slightly stretched out, no doubt due to someone with a slightly larger chest than mine renting it before me. The dress is slightly low cut so I was unable to wear a bra with it. (A positive in my book, because bras are an invention of the devils.) With that being said, I did have to use a safety pin on one strap so my lady bits didn't fall out. I'd definitely rent this dress again. It made me feel like the dime piece that I am! Multiple people commented on how much they liked it. For reference I'm 5'6, 250lbs and wear a 42C. If you're on the fence about renting this dress then Humpty Dumpty yourself off that barrier and into this bomb.com garment. You won't regret it!

Beautiful for a black tie wedding

Loved everything about this! As a recently new mom I was terrified it wouldn't fit or look good - thankfully it did both! It was comfortable, and perfect length if you're on the shorter side like me but want a long dress. I loved it!!

Perfect fit. Pretty embroidery detail.

Wore this dress to a formal wedding. Got a bunch of compliments on it. Fit true to size. Boning in the dress was uncomfortable wore Spanx so it wouldn't dig into me and it definitely helped. Overall would wear it again and recommend it!

Great easy dress!

Received many compliments on this dress. Can be worn for black tie or cocktail. Usually wear a 6 or 8, the 8 fit perfectly. Very comfortable and easy to move around in.

Looooved! But lose the boning!

Fit wonderfully! The boning got pokey and really hurt after a while, but other than that- no regrets! I'm six feet tall for reference :)

Gorgeous dress with a slight design flaw

This fit true to size, I usually wear a 6-8 so I ordered both sizes. The color and embroidery is so much more beautiful in person. Minimal stretch in the top half of dress, bottom half is flowy and looser. The size 6 fit perfectly, but there is plastic boning in the top half of the dress to give it shape and it was coming out of the seams and poking me in the hips and under my armpits. Highly uncomfortable. Ended up wearing the 8 and didn't notice the boning poking me again until the end of the wedding. I wish they had constructed this dress a little better so you could wear it without being stabbed.

Beautiful dress

I loved this dress! I am usually a size 2 but I am busty so I ordered a size 4 as my back up and that is the one that worked. I got so many compliments all night long. The dress is gorgeous and well made and the fabric holds so wonderfully.

Nonstop compliments at a formal wedding

This dress is even more beautiful in person, the color of the embroidery is fantastic. Fits true to size unless you are busty. I'm between a 6-8 and ordered both the 8 and 10 based on reviews that it ran tight. I wore the 8 and it was a little loose on me, I needed a padded strapless bra to fill out the top as a pear shaped gal. I would 100% recommend for a formal affair. Only downside is the boning pokes out at the bottom but it is easily fixed with some tape

So much fun to dance in!

This dress fit like a dream. The straps are not adjustable, so luckily they were the perfect length for my figure. I wore this to a formal wedding at a winery and got so many compliments.

Thai dress was so much fun! I rented for a derby party and it didn't disappoint!

They didn't have a 12 available so I opted for the 14 and it was a little large on top. I wish there was a way to adjust the straps. But overall it was such a beautiful dress. I love the see through part at the bottom as it gave it a different dimension.

The dress is stunning

The top area is kind of loose but the remaining dress is absolutely gorgeous. I got so many compliments on my outfit. The embroidering is stunning, it's absolutely beautiful. It super comfortable in over 90 degree North Carolina heat too.

Gorgeous Unique Dress

I wore this dress for my birthday evening. We went to a nice dinner and stayed in a fancy hotel where there were many fancy people, and this dress was perfect. I loved how the dress was see through at the bottom. The embroidery added a touch of luxury. I wore a size 6 so I'd have room. I maybe could have worn the 4 but didn't want to cram myself into the 4. The dress was a little bit longer than I had expected. I am only 5'6" and I suppose the model is much taller, so this dress came to just above my ankles. I wore it with black strappy chunky heels, chunky earrings, and a nude handbag. I was also able to wear a black strapless bra with no problem. This dress is high style, so if you're going to be somewhere where people pay attention to that definitely get this dress.

Such a flattering dress!

Loved this dress — received so many compliments. It fit me perfectly, but I do have a small chest. I would recommend sizing up if you are more well-endowed. This was so fun to dance in, I'm so sad I have to send it back!

Not your average dress!

I rented this dress for a wedding and absolutely loved it! It was fun and different and definitely stood out from the crowd! I got compliments on it all night ;) I kept in mind other reviewers comments and went up a size. There is no give and the bodice has ribbing so keep that in mind.

I got so many compliments! I felt really beautiful, but fun and comfortable!

I would give it an A! I felt really gorgeous and the embroidery is mesmerizing. It fit my body to a T! It was tight around the bodice, but not uncomfortable. I have a large bust, but I was still able to wear a strapless bra and felt like it covered everything well. The neckline shows cleavage but it's not "plunging." The boning in the sides can get to you after 6 hours and a dance party- but truthfully, I made it that long before noticing it...which is pretty great in a formal dress.

Fantastic dress for a tropical themed evening!

This dress was loads of fun, colorful and comfortable to wear. My only minor complaint is that the waist ribbon was super curly on the ends. I just ignored it, but others might want to straighten them. I had tons of compliments and would wear it again.

Gorgeous, unique statement piece!

I wore this to my good friend's spring wedding in the mountains. I felt like a queen and the dress couldn't have been more perfect. It was actually my backup dress but I fell in love with it immediately. It was full length on me because I'm pretty short but I wore 3" heels and it still was the perfect length. The fabric is beautiful and the highest quality, the embroidery is vibrant and detailed. The straps slipped while dancing and I had a little chafing under the arms from dancing but I truly have zero complaints about this dress! Did NOT want to return it.

I LOVE this dress!

The dress fits true to size. The top is really modest, so it's covers. However, regardless it is stunning. I wore it to my Dad's award ceremony and got compliments and fit right in, in NYC! The tie in the front is a little odd but you don't notice it much. I typically wear an 8, but it was a little tight so the 10 was more comfortable. The 10 fit really well too so it was an easy decision. I was very sad to send it back!

Beautiful embroidery and colors!

This dress was beautiful, with amazing colors and embroidery that really made it stand out. Pros: flattering on hourglass figures and perfect length for shorter heels. It also is fitted well enough that you can get away without a bra if you wanted. Cons: shoulder straps are not adjustable and it left the top of the dress to be more open than I was expecting. With broad shoulders, wide hips and smaller bust, this dress showed more than anticipated. I ended up needing to use fashion tape to keep everything in place. Overall though, this dress was awesome!

Another Standout Dress from RTR

The embroidery on this dress is so pretty and makes it really unique! I wore it to an outdoor wedding in June and received lots of compliments. I am 5'0", so the tea length was pretty much floor length on me, and I just wore some wedges that were maybe 2.5", and the dress didn't drag at all. It's pretty low cut, so I would not recommend if you are self-conscious about showing cleavage. I also thought it had adjustable straps when I reserved it, but it does not. I was able to pin them, but the straps are so thin that the pins would snap, and I was nervous I'd rip the straps. I finally gave up after fixing them several times. That is the only reason this dress doesn't get 5 stars. I was comfortable (other than the loose straps) and was able to eat, drink, and dance without much worry.

Loved the dress and was beautiful but it had the bones that were poking out and going into my side. I had to put duck tape on the pointy area.

Flower power

Cute, floral, boho vibes. Fit like a glove, runs a tad bit small. The plastic in corset top was sticking out in some places so that was annoying. Otherwise hit me just past the ankles and I'm 5'5.
