Fun and flirty

Wore this for a bachelorette night out - so cute! I felt like the red dress dancing woman emoji! I probably could've sized down given the elastic waist and the overall sizing. But, it was just fine as is!

Gypsy goddess vibes

Plenty of room to size down if needed, very comfortable! The linen is beautiful and feels light. The pockets are a perfect addition to this dress

It has POCKETS!

The night before my best friends bridal shower, I popped into the RTR store and this was the only dress in my size. How lucky was I :) The Orange is stunning - I got so many compliments.i definitely could have sized down. The waist is very stretchy. Overall beautiful, comfy & POCKETS. Highly recommend! x

Meh...

Keep in mind material is thick linen, a bit heavy. The sleeves kept falling down, so I safety pinned. It's a great color for fall. Since I wasn't as comfortable wearing it I changed out of it, returned unworn with tags. I'll pass on this one.

I don't want to send it back...ever

I love this dress. There are no cons. It is comfy, flattering, and just gorgeous. I couldn't wait to wear it win it came out of the bag and it will be worn a couple more times before I part with it. It is just so gorgeous.

This dress runs quite large, especially at the top. Other than that this dress is amazing.

Pretty but....

The quality is nice but the fabric is heavier than expected and looked a bit like a historic 1800s dress.

a little frumpy

Not sure if I love it or hate it. I ordered a 10R but the fit was kind of baggy up- top. I'm sending back for a size 8R in hopes it fits a little better. It's a very forgiving fit, stretchy & flowy. But the chest part was just unflattering on me, the pleating was baggy even though I have a large chest. I want to love this dress, so hoping a smaller size will look less frumpy.

Amazing color for spring!

I had to use fashion tape to keep the sleeves on my shoulders. I couldn't tell if it was meant to be off the shoulder, but that made me look frumpy. Love the quality of the fabric. Definitely had a "Swiss maid" feel, but I was into it.

Easy breezy stunner

Loved this flowy pleated flattering dress. Super comfy material and cut with sexy neckline. (I wore a strapless bra because it slipped off shoulders which I liked) I felt like a fire nymph. Perfect RTR dress - tried something completely new and loved it.

Great color, but runs big up top.

I was so looking forward to this dress, but didn't wear it because it is way too generous in sizing and fabric, especially in bust and shoulders. The style is super cute and the color is wonderful. It would be a nice daily stunner if it only fit. May try again with smaller size. FYI - the fabric is on the heavy side and a bit wrinkled. Not a gauzy feel that I expected.

Comfy, runs slightly large

I liked the dress, but it's heavy so not good for hot weather. It runs slightly large except for the elastic around the lower arm, that was tight.

Super cute!

I love this dress. Super comfortable and the perfect weight for spring in California, which is typically in the 70s. I'm pretty small chested, so it was a little loose there, but overall fit great.

"Love that dress!"

I had so many people compliment this dress - the color was gorgeous, the fit was flattering, and It ended up being more comfortable than I thought it would be! I'm 5'3" and length was perfect. Can be worn off the shoulders or not.

Pretty color, awkward fit

The color of this dress is beautiful and I wish I could have worn it, however, it was way too big. I'm usually between a 6-8 and I could have easily worn a 4 in this dress. The top was so big that it wouldn't stay up, even if I wore it over my shoulder (as opposed to off-the-shoulder). I even considered belting it, which would be a cute way to style it, but wouldn't have helped. I was literally flashing my entire chest (not exaggerating here: boobs/bra fully on display). Additionally, the fabric is something like a heavy linen. Not terrible, just not what I was expecting. I wouldn't discourage others from renting this, just size down -- maybe by 2 sizes if you're small chested like me.

Perfect spring dress

Lovely piece. Fit was perfect. Color is a beautiful pale orange. Material a tad heavier than anticipated. Ideal for a spring day. I wore on the first 75 degree day we've had in NY and was comfortable in the shade but quite hot in the sun.

Such a fun color - I received a lot of positive comments!

I can see how some say it's slightly larger because of the fit in the sleeves, but I actually liked that aspect of the fit!

Just threw on this dress, which is a bold color and didn't have to accessorize much to make a statement.

White House tour/travel

I got this dress from the Georgetown location and all the girls there are so nice- they loved this dress on me- it was a size too big, but it was the only one they had. I should have gone down a size but it still worked. It was heavy material but didn't drag. It worked all day walking the city even on the plane across country and home. I wore it with a long army green jacket and combat boots. Sooo comfortable. The guy at TSA complimented me on my outfit!

Beautiful color, copious compliments

It was extremely comfortable, with a flattering neckline and sleeves. At least three people stopped me to say they loved the dress. The forgiving bottom half was great as my body transitioned between my first and second trimesters. If I weren't pregnant, I would've bought this dress.

An absolutely stunning and comfy dress

Got this dress because I love the vibrant colour and boho look for everyday, weekend casual wear and I was NOT disappointed. It's flowy, flattering, the colour is gorgeous and the off-the-shoulder style emphasizes my cute shoulders and collarbone. Would recommend for the curvy girl (I'm pear-shaped and this emphasized my shape without being tight).

Wasn't able to wear

This dress is huge on top! I order a size down from my normal as the reviews recommended, but it was still so big that the arms wouldn't stay on my shoulders. I sent it back without wearing.

Comfy & perfect for summer

Cute dress! I love the bright pop of orange and it's flattering on many skin tones - including my very fair skin with red undertones. It is a little baggy in the chest area which I was surprised by since i have a larger chest. Wore this to work on my birthday and out to dinner and it was a great summer day to evening look. Can be dressed up or down!

"You look lovely!"

Obsessed. If it wasn't a $670 peasant dress, I'd buy this in a heartbeat. The high quality linen was flowy but not flimsy. The neckline is sexy, but not inappropriate. There are some lovely details on the sleeves that help elevate this dress. People kept complimenting the dress but also me--not even the dress!--as if the dress had magical powers that also made my skin glowy and my hair unfrizzy. I almost believe it does.

The shoulders are super loose on this dress. You will spend the whole day trying to keep them from slipping down. Otherwise the color is gorgeous and it's very comfy. Plus pockets!

Sun goddess vibes

Rent this if you want a effortless dress that will make you feel like a sun goddess! Did run big so get a size smaller if it's available. For me the size smaller wasn't available but this is the kind dress where you can make it work.

will work for a large chest

I ordered the 18 and it runs large. I think it will work best for a large chest. It's so big on top that it fell off my shoulders. This tangerine color is very pretty, although the fabric is not as flowing as it looks in the picture. Also, I saw a pic of someone wearing it on RTR's Instagram, check it out.
