Beautiful Spring/Summer Dress

Love, love, love this dress. Fits true to size and skirt inside stretch a little. A plus for me since I'm curvy. Dress is unique and not able to wear a bra. Sexy but yet classy. Wore it to a family brunch get together and it was a hit. Men and women both complimented me all day. It was a head turner. I will definitely rent this one again. Such a beautiful spring/summer dress.

Beautiful dress

The dress was beautiful and different. I didn't end up wearing the dress to my rehearsal dinner due to the low cut. I was not able to wear a bra which was just not appropriate for my event. I would have worn it without on any other occasion. It was also a bit tight in the waist.

So glad someone reviewed this because I am (hopefully) wearing it to my bridal shower!! Looks gorgeous on you!

Perfect LWD!!!

This dress is even more amazing on than it is on the hanger! True to size. Fit like a glove. Didn't need to wear a bra due to heavy thick fabric that fit small bust well. It has pockets!!!!! I only noticed this towards the end... Had I known earlier I would have capitalized on this. So functional. Gorgeous dress. Highly recommend it.

Gorgeous dress and perfect material but I did not wear it. Neither size worked.

Dress is heavy cotton and very well made. I ordered the 6 and got a back up of the 2 because the size 4 (which would have fit perfectly) was not available. Definitely cleavage bearing. I have a small waist but am hippie so this dress may not be the best only because of the lining below, its pretty A-line and narrow and doesn't have much give to it. Wish I could have worm it!

Stylist Review!

This white lace dress buy Nicholas is different and beautiful. With a very feminine shape and fuller skirt, the deep-V and partially unlined skirt helps to keep it modern. Running true to size we recommend going one size up for a backup as the dress is very fitted at the natural waist. However, there is ample room for hips if you are curvier in that area. I normally would not go for a piece like this, but once I put it on, it definitely won me over. It has an amazing shape and the fuller skirt makes your waist look teeny tiny and the best part is the dress has pockets. The neckline is quite low and we would recommend this for A to C cup sizes. Pair with a pointy pump and some gold jewelry to complete your modern ladies-who-lunch look.

Lots of complements, can't eat when wearing

I have a small chest so I had to wear the 4 over a 6. The for was so tight on my ribcage, I could barely eat or breathe

Beautiful Texture

This dress is stunning, but I chose to go with my second style and did not wear this dress. I'm 6' and I found that the waist hit me in a not so flattering way: the peplum seemed odd. I'm very very pear shaped - usually I need a 12 or 14 in dresses to accommodate my hips. Here, the 12 fit my waist and hips but the shoulders and bust were big on me- also not super flattering. I think this dress would like awesome on tall girls who are less curvy

Great birthday dress!

I rented this dress for my birthday dinner. It was beautiful! I loved the overlay and the fit was perfect. I am 130 lbs, 5'6", 34B. It is low cut, as you can see in the picture, and definitely shows a lot of cleavage. It is very comfortable though, and I got several compliments from strangers. Would definitely recommend this dress!

User friendly experience

I didn't end up wearing either dress to my occasion due to my personal issues with the cleavage area. I chose the dress for a graduation with my co-workers in the medical field and I felt nervous about showing too much. This dress is lovely. It does hit at an area that is above the waist which some may find unappealing.. There are pockets which are a nice & unexpected addition The material is lace and has a heavier feel to it.. The dress fits true to size.. I would suggest wearing this to a wedding or an outdoor affair..

Beautiful in every way!

I originally ordered another dress, but it became unavailable at the last minute. I'm kind of glad it did. I rented this dress for an engagement shoot. I loved this dress. It runs slightly large. I am usually a 12/14 in dresses and I think I could've gotten a 10 since you can't really wear a bra and you need the support if you're busty. The lace detail is beautiful and the dress has some weight to it, but doesn't look it. I'd definitely recommend it!

Pretty Spring Dress

I loved this dress and felt so beautiful for my bridal shower. The fit on the size 4 was perfect. The top of the dress was a little too tight on the 2. If you have a wider rib cage or bigger bust, I would suggest sizing up so you are comfortable and can easily breathe. I loved that I didn't have to wear a bra nor did I have to worry about fashion tape. I could sit, bend, reach and move without anything peaking out. The deep V laid flat. I highly recommend this dress!

SEXY, SASSY AND CLASSY!!! This dress exudes feminity, class and beauty.

The fit was amazing, the straight skirt shows you have a figure but fun and retro with full skirt. Ladies and store clerks stopped to compliment the dress. I felt very lady like and sensual. The perfect summer dress to go from day to date. Oh...if my date's initial reaction to seeing me was any indicator that the dress was a smash! I can't wait to rent this little frock again.

Amazing!

Definitely for the smaller breasted. My boobs were definitely on display all night - I wore to an evening party and it was fine, but might not have worked for a daytime event. The bottom of the dress has a lot of fabric so it balances out the lack of it on top! This dress was just absolutely stunning - I got a million compliments!! No stretch so definitely go up a size for the backup - I ended up wearing a size 2.

This dress was incredible! So different. It fit true to size. I had to see up the chest because it was far too low for the event. I received compliments galore and still do. Great, well-structured but fun dress!

Beautiful dress!

Definitely a dress for smaller chested ladies. The lining in the skirt was narrower than I imagined and quite tight on my larger hips but luckily there was a little stretch to the fabric. Love that this dress has pockets!

Comfortable, but made my hips look big

I felt very comfortable In the dress but I felt because it was a little larger than I planned it made me look very wide. Would definitely size down on this one.

Wore this dress to an All White Party in DC, received many compliments all night!

The dress fit great, it's perfect for small busts like mine. It's not lightweight but "appears" lightweight and is still great for a summer event. I had to wear a special deep V adhesive bra with this dress. It's sexy!

It's okay...

This dress is very unique and pretty, however it's very "booby" (which you can see from the photo) and the overlaying skirt poofs out more than I liked. I have a rectangle body and I felt like it hid what minuscule curves I had.

I never got to wear this dress, but WANTED TO!

Sadly, the size 4 that I ordered was unavailable last minute so they sent the back up size instead (2). This dress runs TRUE TO SIZE. Unfortunately, my rib cage did not allow for the dress to zip up. What I was able to get it up to, was beautiful! ORDER THIS DRESS, you won't be disappointed.

I rented this for a "White Party" and was very pleased with the fit and received many complements.

I'm 5'5" and 105 lbs, small B breast. Fit perfect. Hit a little bit longer on the leg than this model, but not overwhelming on my frame because of the see-through panel.

This dress is gorgeous! I rented it for our baby announcement photos and it was perfect!

The Size 2 fit well. It was tight around the waist, but I think the Size 4 would have been too large on me. It is low cut, but was very fitted so I did not have to wear a bra. The length was a tad on the long side for my short frame, but I just wore my tallest heels. Overall, it was an amazing dress!

Amazing dress!!

I felt amazing in this dress and received several compliments throughout the night. The deep V neckline was more revealing than I was expecting but still classy. I would definitely recommend renting this, you won't be disappointed. I ended up going up a size because the size 6 was too tight around my ribcage.

Fun dress

Very nice and fun dress, but cannot be worn with a bra and has to be worn with fashion tape in order to stay in place in the cleavage area. Unfortunately it was a very warm day and the fashion tape would not stay in place and so I could not wear the dress.

Southern Belle

I travelled with my beau to Savannah, GA for the long holiday weekend. This dress fit in perfectly with the low country ambiance. I felt like a true southern belle. I received nothing but compliments from strangers and even the Bae received compliments (on how lucky he is to be with me). One woman was in complete awe she took my hand; complimented me and took a pic. I will warn you--- the dress fits tight in the rib cage (I am still trying to decide if it was because it was truly tight or because I was indulging in fried foods). The dress is VERY revealing. I opted to wear the tighter dress so that the girls will stay in place (36C). I did not wear a deep plunge bra but I suppose you could wear one if you like. I had some difficulty with the zipper, I am guessing it had something to do with the fabric. To aid the zipper, I used the white soap method (look it up on Pinterest). The underlaying slip was a little tight around my hips (I have wide hips) but it wasn't noticeable. The dress is HEAVY but I had no problems walking around in it on a 90 degree summer afternoon. Styling tips--- less is more !!!! I wore simple sandals; a crossbody purse; almost no jewelry and a BOLD lip--- red orange will look perfect with this dress. If you are on the fence with this rental--- just get it. You will NOT regret it !

Diner En Blanc!

If this is in your top ten, make it your number one! Amazing fit! I'm a busty girl (36DD) so I opted for plenty of double sided tape, which held amazingly all night, through walking and dancing. I have a bit of stomach but didn't need spanx as the dress held nicely in that area. Fabric is heavier than pictured but it didn't weigh me down. Compliments will be endlessly flowing so get ready and Enjoy!

RTR Stylist Review

This dress would have been so festive for my engagement party! It was fitted in the waist with room in the hips. Unfortunately, the neckline was cut way too low for me. Would be adorable if you had no problem with deep plunge necklines, otherwise I might choose a different option.

This dress was an absolute hit! From the time I arrived till the time I left I received tons of compliments. One lady even asked to take a picture of me in it!!!! I wore it with a deep but bra I bought year ago at Windsor and added a wrap belt to accentuate the waistline. Would recommend.

Beautiful material!

Heavier material than I thought! Loved it! But didn't wear. After reading reviews I figured I would go up a size. Well I was glad I did for the bottom 1/2 of me but the top 1/2 was now huge. I apparently need to different sizes for my top and bottom half. Really wish I could have worn. :(

Showy Dress

This dress is sexy but the material is so high end that it's not slutty at all. I felt so comfortable although the dress was low cutt, I wasn't falling out. The inside of the dress was short on me because I am curvy which made it extra sexy. Didn't expect this one to be so va va voom but I felt great and rocked it!

The dress was beautiful and unique.

Wore it to two different summer events and out to dinner. Received a ton of compliments. Perfect for those with small waist and wide hips. It is low-cut so I was somewhat self conscious. But it was the perfect mix of sexy and dressy.

Best decision ever!

I needed a dress for my engagement party and I had never used this website so I was very unsure. Saw this dress and knew it was perfect. Loved that they sent me two sizes but the original size of 8 was perfect. Dress was very flattering for my body type which is curvy. The white underskirt rode up a few times but nothing unbearable. Got the most amazing compliments all night. Would definitely recommend!

Worn to a winter fundraiser.

Great dress! Wish I could keep it! The fabric is heavier so it's perfect for a cooler evening. It has pockets which were so helpful so that I didn't have to carry a clutch around all night. It fits tight in the ribcage, so if you are on the fence about what size to order, get what you normally wear, and get a size up for your backup. I'm normally a 2 and I was able to squeeze into a 2, but it was a little bit tight. The cut is indeed very low, but everything stays in place because the cut is done well. Rent this one! You won't regret it.
