Super cute dress, I wore it to my wedding rehearsal and dinner after. I'm a 34D and didn't need a bra with this dress due to the built-in structure which was a plus.

Dress is much dressier in picture. The fabric is basically frayed cotton, its pretty casual and does not lay as nicely as in the photo. I'm a 32DD and the girls barely fit in the size 6, but the 8 was too big. Definitely no bra needed no matter what size you are. Probably best for a B or C cup.

I wore this dress for my bridal shower. As previous reviews said, a bra wasn't necessary because of the built in wire/cups. Everyone said I looked great; however, the dress did not look nearly as nice as the picture - the ruffles didn't fall very nicely and it looked pretty cheap.

At 130 lbs, 5'6, I found this dress to fit like a glove. Because I have a fuller bust (34D), I was unable to wear a bra, and there was no need to because of the built-in structure of the dress. The fabric looks much nicer in the picture than in person; it crinkles very easily and the pleats don't lay perfectly like shown in the picture. This is just a white, cotton sundress. I wore it to the backyard reception after my wedding because it felt too informal for the rehearsal dinner.

Brunch dress

Size worn: 44
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I really liked the fit of this dress - I was able to wear with a strapless bra and it was cute for the day without being too much skin. It was a little long on me, but I wore it for brunch for the day after our wedding, and it was perfectly casual and cute!

Not quite what it seems

Size worn: 38
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress was disappointing to me since the quality wasn't as nice as it appears in the picture. Its much more casual then you might assume.

This dress is very cute, but the built in bra is so TINY that it was not worth it to me to rent.

Size worn: 42
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
I had to wear the larger of the two sizes I got and even though the rest of the dress was quite loose, I could barely breathe because the chest was so constricting. This also meant it was much more revealing than I had hoped (indeed, than it appears to be on the model). If you are a B cup or smaller, this dress will probably look great on you, but I had to wear a scarf the whole time I had it on to cover my chest and I was super self conscious. No fun.
