Oh no no.

Ladies the chest area runs incredibly small. I am not a big girl and I was falling out if it. The waste fit perfect so I could not size up. Too showy for me. I did not wear it to my event.

I would whole heartedly agree with this. I wanted to like this dress but the top is too much.

Super cute but not my cup of tea...

Pros: - Cute style - True to size but keep in mind there is ZERO stretch Cons: - The fabric wrinkles easily. It’s actually cotton but seems a little bit like linen in its texture. - For me the straps were a little too long (and they’re not adjustable) - Strapless bra (with a deep plunge) shows a little in the cleavage area and in the armpits areas (but I do have a large chest, so keep this in mind)

Fun and flirty

I really liked this dress. It's pretty with a little edge. It's a nice thick fabric. The straps are a little long and I had to pull them up at times but overall I loved it.

Rented it for everyday loved it

I love this dress, I have huge hips and a big bum and it made it flattering to both, the sleeves kept falling down however, so the top may run a little big. Love this dress regardless!

Runs small, not for curvy girls.

I'm normally a 2-4, 4 for fitted styles and this just didn't fit me. The lining was pretty tight but the sleeves were too long and kept falling off. I think this would look best on a tall/thin girl and not people with curves.

Cute

Returned without wearing :( Last minute plan changes left me with no reason to wear this- it's too revealing for me to wear casually running errands. A little tight in the ribcage and straps are too long. Maybe on someone long waisted.

The dress was extremely comfortable. I received a lot of comments and I would definitely rent again. It had flair, classy and perfect for the California weather.

Husband's Birthday Dinner

My husband LOVED that I rented this dress for his birthday dinner. Ample cleavage and legs! The straps were a little long, and slipped off my shoulders a few times. I suggest using tape so that even if the straps fall off, you don't fall out!

Great Florida brunch dress

Comfortable and flattering! Often, dresses won't fit my rib cage, but this was nice and snug. The straps were a bit long but easily pinned, and the length was just above the knee. Comfortable and cute, I would rent again. Definitely more of a sundress. I️ did wear it as a spaghetti strap instead of wearing the ruffles off the shoulder as pictured... it was more comfortable :)

Strange cut on top

Unfortunately this dress was a miss for me. I love Nicholas dresses (have rented 7+ of them) and size very consistently/easily into that line/RTR dresses generally. The straps on this were very long and the plunge went down past my sternum. It felt like the triangles for the chest went out too wide. The ruffles at the hem of the dress were very sculpted/lifted and the waist area fit like a corset (which was flattering but understandably less comfortable). The waist to hem area fit like a scandalous dirndl dress.

Very flattering and beautiful dress

I absolutely loved this dress, it was so cute and unique and it fit perfectly for my body type. I have a small bust and waist with wide hips so it sometimes gets tricky finding a nice fit. The dress was pretty tight overall, I needed help zipping it, but it was surprisingly comfy. If my bust had been any larger (I'm a 32B) I would have had to size up.

Hot in Negril

The dress is very pretty but one mustn't be afraid to show major cleavage in this one. If you are a C or show. Overall great dress, it is tighter and less forgiving than the Nicholas dress in the same style in blac however so keep this in mind.

Lovely summer dress

This dress runs one size small. The straps are a little too long. You will most likely have to pin or tape them back. The chest has a very wide opening so be prepared to go braless.

Trendy, flirtatious and feminine

Super flattering and cute but I do agree with other reviewers who stated: - Sleeves and straps are too long (I pinned them down from the back which kept them from falling off my shoulders) - no stretch (but I like that firm no wrinkle middle) - I'm only a 32B so boobs were nicely propped up but if you have boobs beware

Straps too long, but cute

Cute dress, but the straps are really long and kept falling off my shoulder, so I didn't wear it. The 4 was wearable, the 6 more comfortable in the chest. Nips in nicely in the waist. Be prepared to show some cleavage unless you can figure out a way to tighten the straps enough to raise the neckline. Overall, it's a cute daytime dress, a little sexy but preppy, be prepared to pin the straps.

Wore with sleeves off

Took the advice of another reviewer and wore it with the ruffled sleeves just down, so the dress was a tank top basically. The ruffles looked fine but I think it looked cuter with them under the arms. Really liked it and would wear again

NOT FOR LARGER CHESTS!!

This dress is ADORABLE. I'm so sad it didn't fit... I am 5'0, 135lbs with 32DDD bust. I usually wear a size 4 in dresses, but per other reviewers, I ordered a 4 and a 6... I probably needed a 10 to be perfectly honest. There is NO give or stretch to the fabric. There is an eye hook and zipper in the back. My chest was SQUISHED. Even after I attempted to put on Spanx, no chance. However, as tight as it was, the shoulder spaghetti straps would fall down--which would DEFINITELY happen in the smaller size as well. The 8 and 10 were no longer available at the time of my rental, but I'm sure neither would've fit either way due to the straps and the material. RTR is sending me a replacement dress (Greylin--Emma Ruffled Dress, FYI), so here's hoping it fits better! The sleeves are adorable, the print is adorable. The cut is a touch sexy, so that was nice. I just wish 1) it were more breathable and 2) the straps were shorter or adjustable. If you have a smaller chest, this dress will work--JUST ORDER A SIZE OR TWO UP!!

Super Small

This was disappointing. I almost always wear a 0 for RTR rentals. This seemed much smaller than usual. I am 108 lbs, 25 inch waist and 32 inch bust and could not wear this. I could get it zipped and on, but it was super tight and the bust area completely flattened me, it was way to small. I would try again for the 2 though, because I liked the idea of the dress!

Fun and flirty dress

Loved the dress! Wore it to a BBQ! It was comfy and true to size. My only problem was the bust area. The straps were to long and constantly fell down. To avoid a wardrobe malfunction I taped the top so when the straps fell the rest of it didn't fall! If you could adjust the straps would give this review 5 stars.

Wore around town. So cute.

A little tight on the chest and my chest is small. I was worried that the flaps would reveal my nipples so I had to tape the flaps with double sided tape. Also the dress runs a tad small otherwise very flattering A line dress

Cute, light-weight and perfect for a night out at the beach. Same complaint as others - the straps don't adjust and were a bit loose. Overall great dress!
