Cute Spring dress!
I'm a sucker for dresses with pockets, so that made this dress much more fun to wear. I'd say that it's more for a daytime event, or perhaps a wedding. It's very Spring-y, and has a lot of bounce. Perfect for that girly girl! One thing, it does run small and is a bit tight at the chest.

can you wear a bra with this? or no?
rebeccaApril 27, 2014
does it have flowers?
AmandaApril 28, 2014
You can, maybe if you size up, especially if you're a bit bigger chested. I didn't wear one, the material is thick enough.

Attended The Queen's Cup Steeplechase in NC were I hosted a tail gaiting event at the horseraces.
Dress was perfect for the occasion and the color complimented my skin tone for sunny outdoor event. Nothing else worn like it which made my hosting duties effortless. Dress ran smaller around waist and chest area...had to go a size up than normal. Suggest to order days before & let hang out and/or steam dress due to tulle under lining of dress makes it flair out a bit much; therefore can give visual of wide hips and bigger booty. Loved the side hidden pockets! Wish I would have selected better jewelry to compliment it...a nice, fun necklace is needed. Overall, pleased:-)

STUNNING!
Wore this dress to a destination beach wedding this past weekend and it was INCREDIBLE! Received tons of compliments! I would say that the dress is pretty much true to size. I normally wear a 10, but wore an 8 for this wedding. I have a much smaller upper body, so I was able to size down. I would definitely recommend for the pear shaped body, very very flattering!

Amazing dress! Never got so many compliments on a dress in my life!
It fit very well to my body type, which is hard to do. Great for a spring/summer wedding. I would highly recommend!

Top notch customer experience professionals
I usually wear things that are more straight or slight a-line, so this dress took about an hour to get used to the poof. And then I loved it. I used fashion tape at the bust and had to adjust my bra to stay hidden in the back. I loved the pockets and the color. It is a high quality dress with heavier material, but I had no issues in the 85 degrees in the shade and was very comfortable dancing in the A/C.

Great summer wedding dress
I rented this for an outdoor wedding & it was perfect. I loved the color, and the shape was very flattering. Because it's a heavier fabric & has such a full skirt, it definitely needed to be ironed when I got it, so make sure you'll have time to do that.

Best Bridal Shower Ever
This dress is super cute, flattering fun, & bold for me. More cleavage than expected. Was able to go without a bra. Perfect length - not too short, not too long. Wore w/ nude heels. Zipper was horrible. Broke when taking it off because it literally would not move even with other people helping. Was even a struggle to get the zipper up before the party. I only gave it a 3 because of the zipper & the maneuvering required to take it off. Otherwise, great dress.

Gorgeous color and style!
I love this dress and wish I owned it in every color! This dress was meant to arrive Friday and I checked the shipping and there was a delay. Shipping was listed for Monday and the event was Saturday. RTR stepped up as usual and had this dress shipped next day delivery for Saturday. It fit like a glove and was so flattering! The color looked gorgeous with my skin tone.

The overall experience was fantastic
At first i was worried about the bottom being "poofy" but i quickly fell in love with this dress. I have 5 weddings to attend this year and i plan on using RTR for all of them!!

Pretty but I didn't wear it
I read in other reviews that this was a good summer wedding dress, but when I took it out of the box my first reaction was that it felt like a quilt! It is very thick and has three layers on the bottom so it's not exactly lightweight. I have a pretty straight and narrow frame, and it ended up making me look pretty boxy. I think it would be really flattering on someone hourglass or maybe pear shaped, but on me I just looked wide because of all the fabric. The skirt is also VERY poofy (even more than in the photos), which I expected but as my bf said it was kind of like Alice in Wonderland, and I felt just too ridiculous in this dress to wear it. What a shame! The material is very nice...it just wasn't for me. Also, I couldn't zip up the dress in my normal size, so I would suggest ordering a size up! I really wanted to like it enough to wear it, but all the friends I asked essentially said they thought it was okay but not great.

This dress didn't work out but my replacement was amazing and I loved RTRs great service!
The fit is definitely large for this dress. The tulle underneath makes the dress a little poofy, and the color is more dull in person than on the model. I didn't love it and because it was large, and my backup size wasn't able to be sent, I picked out a different fit and flare dress that was perfect for the wedding I attended! My sister referred to the dress as our grandmother who lives in Florida curtain if you can picture that on the larger size dresses. I would imagine a smaller size in this would be cuter than someone who is pear shaped and a larger size, it doesn't do much.

Looked like 2 completely different dress designs
I love the way the top fit- it was gorgeous. But the bottom part of the dress just didn't seem to flow with how the top fit. Way too much poof and didn't seem to flow. I wanted to love this dress and I was very disappointed.

Beautiful, fun and unusual with a 50s silhouette.
Runs small in the ribs. I don't have a large bust by any means, but it was tricky to zip this up over my ribcage. Size up one size from your usual dress size.

This was my first choice BUT it was too poofy for my frame and too big in the chest for my small bust. Pretty color, but thick heavy material.

The color was great - super vibrant...and pockets!
I'm 5'5", 36C bust and the 8 fit great. I wore it without a bra and probably should have use fashion tape, but it was still fine. When I first tried it on, I felt like it was way too poofy, but the next day (after it had been hung up and I discovered the pockets) I was in love. I got a ton of compliments on this dress and it ended up being just perfect for the semi-formal fundraiser we attended. It is much more vibrant than the model picture.

My favorite RTR rental!
Great color, great fit, great style, great price! I couldn't have asked for more with this dress. My girlfriend told me, "It was the Best dress at the wedding!" I wore the Kate Spade, Clink Clink Statement Necklace that was shown in the model photo and it truly added to the whole look. I would recommend choosing that piece if it is in your budget! You do not need anything more because the dress, which fit modestly and comfortably, with the necklace completes the look. I already owned a gold purse and gold shoes that blended well! A few things to note about this dress is that the zipper is a little tricky to zip up because the waist fabric is cinched and can get caught. You have to be careful and have someone help you zip, to avoid damaging the dress. Also, the dress fabric is crinkled. That is how it is designed. However, I did have my dry cleaner steam press the dress and it laid more flat. (only $12) You can press it yourself, too. The underlay of the dress is tulle and can get bunched up if not pressed. You may need to size up if you are busty! I am not, so the size 4 fit perfect. None of the above discouraged me from feeling disappointed with this rental. I loved the whole look!

A beautiful fit and an awesome color!
I absolutely loved this dress! The color is really vibrant, the fit was flattering, the full skirt was so much fun, and it was perfect for the August wedding I attended. The fabric was beautifully rich, but that also meant it was really warm. With the tulle underneath the skirt I was pretty hot during the outdoor summer ceremony. The neckline is definitely plunging! I was able to wear a regular bra and I decided that I was alright with a lot of cleavage, but I would recommend a size up or choosing another style if you felt like you needed to be more conservative. I would definitely recommend this dress and hope to rent it again!

Lovely dress - too small in bodice. :-(
This is a gorgeous dress. Absolutely stunning. The fabric is luxurious. The style of the dress is flattering and I couldn't wait to wear it. Unfortunately, the 4 was much to tight in the bodice. I have a wide ribcage although my bosom is not very big. I was so disappointed that I couldn't wear it. I tried everything but I just couldn't get it to fight. And this was my backup dress so I didn't even have another size option to try. However, even if I did, the 6 would have been much too large in the waist and hips.

I got sooo many compliments on this dress.
It looks much better in person than on the website. I had it pressed so it would not be so full. I usually wear a size 4/6 dress, bust size 34Cand this dress fit me in size 8. Love it!

Great color, but not flattering shape
The dress color is lovely and true to the online photos, but the shape really didn't do anything for my body. It seemed to be very high waisted and somehow made me look thicker around the middle. I think it would be better suited for someone a bit shorter or with a shorter torso.

Incredible dress, sexy, conservative, retro, all in one!
Don't hesitate to rent this dress! The fabric is gorgeous, the fit is flattering, instant glamour. This is a great example of why designers can charge such crazy prices for their designs. The pockets are perfect. I felt like Martha Stewart. The skirt maintains a perfect bell shape as you glide around. The only caveat I havens that the dress is tight around the rib age. I could have solved this problem by going up a size without sacrificing style or fit. That's my fault, not the dress. The bust is amazingly flattering, now bra necessary. You will not regret renting this dress. The color is extraordinary and reminds me of sorbet. I just wish I had taken a picture. I would definitely rent again.

A Stunning Dress...Unfortunately, Really Fit Small and I Could Not Wear.
I rented this dress for a wedding and the size 6 was not available. I typically wear a size 4 and somethings a size 6. This truly ran small. I am a straight built with a narrow back and was surprised I could not close in the back. This is a GORGEOUS, fun dress and beautifully made. I imagine it would stand out at an occasion!

I really wanted to love this dress. But alas, it went back
I'm 4'10' - 112 lbs, and broad back and shoulders for my size. The 2 was unzip-able and the 4, well my cleavage was just more than appropriate for the bridal shower. Also, on my frame, the dress appeared wider than I was tall. One big orange pouff. I know it will look fab on someone, but not me.

It fit in the body but was way too long. It hit my knees. I know I'm short but that was not flattering on me. And it had a stain on it, so it had to go back.

Liked, not quite loved
This is a very cute spring dress. I wore this for a derby party and I wanted something fun and bright. This dress was exactly that! I didn't 100% love the dress though because the textured pattern appears more wrinkly than textured. I even tried steaming it but that is just the dress's appearance. I would not have been happy wearing this had it been for a wedding or something more formal. Thankfully it was for a grad school theme party in a dark club, hah! Got plenty of compliments and I had a lot of fun wearing it. It does run small, I had to size up to 8 from my usual 6.

Perfect for a summer wedding!
This dress looked less appealing online, but once I tried it on at the store I was impressed by the fit and style. It's a bit snug around the rib cage, but that also gave great lift. If you're busty too much cleavage might be a problem. The bottom has tulle below adding a fun poof at the bottom. The fabric was way nicer in person.

summer wedding
I rented a dress for the wedding I went to because I had a baby less than 2 months ago and am still bigger than I used to be. I didn't want to buy a dress that, hopefully, I will never wear again. This dress was perfect! The fit of the dress was very flattering with a little bit bigger belly and wider hips. I must note that it is a cleavage dress so be aware if you dress a little more conservatively. Overall, very happy with the dress. I got a lot of compliments!

The color of this dress is amazing! Go a size up if you're busty!
I wore this dress for my friend's wedding! It is absolutely stunning in person! The color just pops! It also has deep pockets that fit my iPhone 6, the skirt was poofy and wonderful to dance in, and it was a hot day so it kept me cool! Be warned though, if you are busty you will show some cleavage! It is better if you wear no bra and tape as suggested! I received so many compliments!!! I'm normally a 10, but I'm a nursing mom, so the ' the girls' needed room so I'm glad I went with the 12 instead of the 10. If you are busty, go a size up!
