Beautiful dress

The dress was beautiful. A bit see through even with the light slip it came with. The top was large on me, with sleeves/ shoulder area falling often. Wearing it under the coat belted was a perfect way to wear the dress. Also note the dress is quite long. It dragged at times when walking even with boots I was wearing. I definitely should have sized down on this one.

Worn off the shoulders for date

This is described as square neck, but I couldn't get it to stay on the shoulders. So when I stopped fighting it, I realized it was way cuter worn off the shoulders!

Beautiful but runs big!

Beautiful material: soft and very flowy Length: regular runs a bit long Size: normally 16-18 so rented 18 as photo shows a tight fitting bodice but ended up top is stretchy and so should have opted for the size 16. Plan to rent size 16 soon and wear on my trip to Europe!

Perfect dress

If you have a lot of curves this is your dress to show them off and that fab collar bone. Many compliments. I want to keep it so much. I could easily wear a bra with wide set straps. Pull the back of the dress down to keep those shoulders on, wear a slip, and put on very high heels if you're not tall. Best non-work dress I've rented so far. RTR tends to only rock my work life, so this was a nice surprise!

Romantic, gorgeous, easy to wear

Fit true to size for me - bit long in the shoulders but I tucked into my bra and wore a jacket, so it was fine. Veryyy long on me, but wore heeled knee high boots under and it hit right above the heel perfectly. Ended up changing into flats when I wore this on a flight, and it was doable, but had to save my dress from getting eaten by my luggage multiple times.

Very sweet

Very cute and the sleeves can go either way which makes it very versatile. A little tight about my chest but I love how it flows around the body.

So pretty!

Great dress, super flattering, dress up or down. I wore it with wedge sandals for an outdoor dinner party. The sleeves do not stay up, so I wore them down, as other reviewers suggested.

Lightweight and comfy for spring wedding or Vacay

Brought this to a trip to Cabo and it was so comfy - Ended up being a little big But it didn't look bad . Could have gone with a 2. It's flowy and the pattern is so pretty - highly recommend !

Easy, breezy, beautiful

Perfect maxi for a spring day. Only con is that I'm pretty sure it is meant to be worn off the shoulder because the sleeves do not stay up very easily.

Nicholas makes the best dresses!

Everything by Nicholas is always so romantic and flattering, and this was no exception. It flowed like a dream and I was even able to wear it without a bra. That's surely a win!

Everything was perfect except the shoulders kept sliding down. I tucked them into my bra straps. Got tons of compliments! I'm wearing flats in the photo.

Silk!!

Loved this dress - the silk just flows when you walk and overall it fit when. The shoulders would never have stayed up on their own though...I used my bra strap to hold them up. Gorgeous colors and feel. Very comfortable.

Cute for 25 weeks pregnant

Wore this out at 25 weeks pregnant. A lot of room, looked great and flowed nicely. Agree with other reviews that it has trouble staying up at the shoulders and I have larger shoulders, long torso, and big bust which should have all worked in my favor. The puff sleeves weren't the most flattering on me, but I liked it with a jacket. Would wear again/recommend.

Beautiful but huge!

This dress looks like it might be a little frumpy at first, but it's gorgeous and hugs curves well. That being said, it's gigantic. Size down one or two sizes. The bust area is elastic and will stretch, but the rest is very loose.

I never actually wore this in the end; the sleeves kept falling off my shoulders.

All in all this is a gorgeous and romantic dress. The portrait neckline is universally flattering and the skirt is flow-y and dreamy. I really wish it had fit me better in the shoulders because I would have worn the crap out of this dress. Perhaps those with larger chests would be better off? Or perhaps I needed to size down? Either way, I ended up wearing another RTR dress to the wedding. I just didn't want to spend the wedding repeatedly pulling the sleeves up and adjusting, adjusting, adjusting.

This dress is SO BEAUTIFUL! The shape, the print, the length. PERFECTION!

Fit was spot on..... except for the shoulders. The shoulders kept falling down. So, I just tucked the sides of the dress into my bra straps. Other than that, the dress was AMAZING! I felt so beautiful wearing it. And I got tons of compliments on it! :)

I love this feminine maxi dress by Nicholas! Running true to size with no stretch, I recommend wearing your true size for your primary size and going up for your back-up. This style is fitted throughout the midsection and at the hips. It works best for A-C cup sizes. You are not able to wear a standard bra with this dress so you should wear a strapless bra since the square neckline can expose your bra strap. At 4’8”, the length hit floor length on me, and was too long for my stature. There is no zipper so getting dressed is effortless. The subtle pops of color and puffed sleeves give this dress a very romantic look. You can also slide the sleeves down and wear as an off-shoulder dress. Pair with cute pastel colored pumps to complete your outfit!

Classic flowy maxi dress

I'm always game for a floral, flowy maxi dress and this dress delivers there. The bust is stretchy and the midsection down is very billowy. The one challenge for me is the box cut neckline, since my bra always peeks out on these cuts. Overall though exactly what is advertised.

Sleeves won't stay up

I never wore this dress. I didn't like how the sleeves wouldn't stay up on my shoulders and I have broad shoulders.

Comfortable and Beautiful

I'm between a 6 and an 8 and the 6 would have fit fine. This dress is so much more beautiful in person. It's so comfortable and extremely flattering. I liked that the sleeves could either be worn like the model shows or looked great off the shoulder.

Received many compliments

The only drawback to this beautiful dress is the sleeves. It is meant to be worn with either the sleeves up or off the shoulder but due to the cut it does not stay on shoulders well. If you are OK with that you will love it.
