Easy yet stylish throw on

Straps were a bit long, couldn't wear a bra, quality material and nice detail!

Way to big!

Thought this would be a cute weekend dress for running errands. Ordered my usual size 10 and it fit like a size 14-16. I could even pull the top portion down over my 42inch hips with ease. Didn't end up wearing the dress out. Posting the photo so others can see how droopy it is. Am wearing halter cami under it just to keep bra from showing. Would be cute if it fit correctly, but definitely still hides any curves as an A line cut dress.

An abundance of fabric!

It was so huge that I tied the bow strings like a halter and wore a jean jacket over it for my meeting. Just way too big.

For over my suit, trips to the farm stand, and breakfast with strangers in Maine...

It's so generously cut that I should have waited (for an 8 or a 10). Still. Crisp cotton. Flouncy layers. Easy gray and white.

Cute but BIG

Really loved the fabric! But it runs huge. I typically wear sizes 2 or 4, based on other reviews I ordered 0. It was still big. I clipped the straps in the back to keep the dress up better. All this aside, I really loved the fun nature of this dress. So summer and could easily be dressed up or down.

Gingham of my dreams :) lol

I had to order a size up because my size wasn't available so I believe it runs TTS! I just knotted the straps to get it to rest a bit higher on me. So high quality and fun to wear!

I didn't wear it

It was frumpy looking on my small frame and just too big.

Great material, adorable pattern, runs large

This dress has super cute fabric! And... it runs incredibly large. I'd have loved the low v-neck if you couldn't see down the front. I recommend going down 1 or 2 sizes. I could have fit a small child in there with me. But it was still so cute an comfy.

Huge

I don't really understand how it is possible that the top is so big. You couldn't wear if large breasted because the fabric wouldn't cover. On the other hand if your small breasted it just falls off. Some ways around it is to wear a white tank under it. Long story short definitely size down and hope for the best. I loved the fabric. I just couldn't wear it.

Cute dress but runs very large

The style and print of this dress is really cute and perfect for summer. However, I would recommend sizing down at least two sizes. I am currently 7 months pregnant and a 36C and the size 6 was huge on me. I couldn't wear it, but will definitely exchange it for a 4.

Adorable

This is adorable. It's full and floucy and fun to wear. It's also large -- it's a LOT of fabric. I'm petite, so I was worried about drowning in it, but it translates to playful and fun rather than too-darn-much-fabric. I did have to shorten the straps slightly, though, and I'd point out it's true-to-size in the chest...the rest, billowing but fun.

RTR Team Review

Cute, spring/summer style. With an oversized silhouette I'd recommend ordering your true size or one size down in this dress. The bust cuts a bit low and the straps are not adjustable so you do need to go braless or wear a strapless bra with this style. Tons of room in the bust, waist, and hips. No stretch to the fabric. Looks great with sandals or dressed up with wedges.
