I really loved the colors in this dress!! I wore it to a beach wedding.

This dress is gorgeous in photos! I chose a 6 and an 8 and almost could have worn either but the restrictive waist band made me think is be more comfortable going up a size. I'm so glad I did too since once I had some food and a couple of drinks, the 8 also felt a bit tight. The colors were gorgeous though and the dress flowed in the breeze at the beach which was great. The chest area had two sets of darts though which made my boobs kinda a funny shape. I'd definitely recommend this dress but if you have a larger chest know you can't really wear a bra with it.

Impossible for me to zip alone but otherwise fit great. Very comfortable and light weight. Loved the colors! Wore with a sticky bra.

Rehersal dinner

Loved wearing this dress! I ended up wearing a strapless bra and I kept checking all night that it was covered, I wish I wore a different bra. I got a lot of compliments. The rehersal dinner was casual and because this dress is flowy and fun I felt it worked well!

Cute dress! Too small to wear

No complaints about the dress itself. It is a true zero however so size up! I wasn't able to wear it but honestly it's my fault for not getting a back up size. Lesson learned!

Great summer dress to celebrate my birthday with dinner and an outdoor concert!

The dress is absolutely beautiful in person. The straps are adjustable which is nice. Fabric is more of a silk than a cotton so no stretch, but it fits true to size so that was ok. It was a little large in the chest for me, but my ribs were too big for the 4. It wasn't noticeable though. Overall, this was a great dress and I would totally rent it again! I may even try the maxi version of it next time!

Perfect fit! I'm 5'3" and the length was just above my knees. I loved the tie in the back. The dress was light weight - great for a warm night.

I rented this dress for everyday wear. I ended up wearing it to work and a dinner with friends. I received tons of components and loved be print and color. Would be perfect for a summer wedding!

Perfect for outdoor party!

The colors of the dress are gorgeous. The material is very nice quality. The size is definitely a smidge on the smaller size. I'm usually between a 2/4, and the 4 was almost too tight. I would size up to be safe, especially if larger in chest!

Gorgeous colors and the perfect length

The only con was the band around the ribs which was super tight and caused some discomfort and the zipper that was almost impossible to close! Otherwise it was the perfect summer dress for a special occasion.

I loved the pattern on this dress, but the fit was a little off. The straps were short but it was loose on top. Cute for a party but probably would not rent again!

Cute print, but weird zipper.

I have a larger bust than waist, so this fit perfect in the bust but looked big everywhere else. I ended up not liking the thin straps on my frame, and the zipper was awful. I would wear again if I had the right cardigan or jacket to wear with it to hide the tiny straps.

I wanted this to work so badly! Not well fitting or flattering for my body type :(

I sadly returned both the 4 and 6. The size 4 I could barely zip over my ribs (very unusual for me) and the size 6 was baggy in the chest area. I love the back (it ties in a faux bow and then has a generous cut out to show some skin) but even with adjusting the straps, I could not get the thin strap to cover my strapless bra. I have never worn Trina Turk before so I ordered the 2 sizes, thinking how could I go wrong? I hope this dress works for others as it is beautiful and the colors are perfect for summer!

Perfect day to night dress for summer fun!

The colors on this dress are amazing! It's completely lined and the lining is likely to wrinkle but that was never noticeable after a day driving around to different wineries and eventually out to dinner. If you have any almost C or above chest I recommend going up in a size as this is the first dress I've ever had to wear the 6 in and the only reason I ordered the 6 was other people said the side zip was hard to get up. I could have gotten into the 4 but it would have smushed in all the wrong places since there isn't any give in the top. I loved this dress and received a ton of compliments including from a woman in a public restroom and of course my boyfriend. I wish I could afford but I'll just have to rent it again some time! I also rented the recommended necklace and LOVED IT!! Totally makes the dress - I added it when we went out for dinner.

beautiful print, small in waist

This dress is gorgeous in person. I typically wear a size 2 (Loft, Gap) and ordered this in a 2 and 4, just to be safe. I can't get the 2 zipped and the 4 is still very tight in the rib cage area. The boob region is a bit big, but I'll be fine with a padded bra (I'm typically a B cup) I would definitely recommend ordering a size up in this dress and whip out the padded bra!

Awkward fit around rib cage

I was unable to wear this for my vacation both sizes were very difficult to zip up past the rib cage and made my small chest look a bit awkward.

Very spring-appropriate dress but beware of sizing!

I didn't actually wear this one because while the 4 fit right at the waist, the chest section just looked really weird. The seams were oddly placed for me and I think sizing down would have been better for the bust (but too tight for the waist area).

Received tons of compliments!

This dress was SO comfortable. People loved the colors and cut of the back. I had to wear a size up from what I do normally in order to give myself some breathing room through the rib cage. However, I found it to run a little big in the chest area but fixed that problem with a push-up strapless bra. I'm 5'11 and the length was perfect. Highly recommend the dress! I said several times throughout the night that I wish I owned it so I could wear it throughout the summer.

Fun colors, light weight semi-silky fabric, but could not wear : (

I was really loving the colors and fabric of this dress, but I was not able to wear this dress because it was not forgiving in the rib cage. It was too tight. The 8 may have fit, but may have been too big in the bust to wear bra-less.

I did not wear the dress. It did not fit on top.

The straps were narrow on the top which made the dress fit odd with someone with a larger bust.

This is such a great summer dress!

I wore this for my birthday and I loved it! I will say the bust was tight for me in the size 6 which is why I ended up wearing an 8. If you wear a strapless bra you can pin it in the back so you can actually wear a bra! Love this!

Had to get a last-minute replacement

I tried the size 8 and the band below the bust hit me right at my ribs and just didn't work. I didn't really feel like the band hit at the "natural waist" -- for my size/weight I'm actually pretty small at the true waist, but this hit much higher on me, at the largest part of my ribcage. I could just barely get it zipped, but I couldn't breathe! I think a size up would have been too big in the cup area, so RTR sent me an alternate. Pretty colors and great pattern; really wish I'd been able to wear it!

This dress was better than the others I ordered, it was flattering, semi-formal, and comfortable!

The dress was a little difficult to tie to hide my strapless bra but I ended up making it work. It fit very comfortably throughout the night!

I was so impressed with the quality of this dress! A perfect outfit for a casual summer wedding.

The band under the bust is quite tight so definitely order a size up for backup. It might be too revealing for some that are modest or large chested, however I wasn't uncomfortable or pulling the dress at all. The length hit me just above the knee, it was just right.

Love the colors! Fun Dress!

I usually wear at size 6, but had to go with the size 8 because it is tight around the waist. I was able to wear a strapless bra with the dress. Overall cute dress, probably would not rent again.

Fun, but way more dressy than expected.

I expected this dress to be a cotton fun summery dress. It ended up being a chiffon type material and it was very uncomfortable to wear for very long. I ended up just wearing it to dinner and changing as soon as it was done. I definitely wouldn't rent this one again.

I'm normally a size 4 and the top half of the dress was huge but the waist band was really tight. Unwearable unfortunately. Might work well on a more endowed girl.

Cute colors, just wish it fit better

I am normally an 8 in box stores (Ann Taylor, J Crew, Banana Republic) and 10 in designer. Given the reviews, I ordered the 8 and 10. The 8 was not happening - it wouldn't zip. The 10 fit fine, but was a little tight along the ribcage. It wasn't uncomfortable, but wasn't the most comfortable thing I have ever worn. I also had to wear a bra with it to help fill out the top which looked insanely large without one. I paired with the Kate Spade necklace pictured with the dress and it was a great addition.

This was a backup dress for a Derby party. Unfortunately, it was way to small and I could not even zip it up. It is a great dress though; the colors are fantastic and the material feels great. I would have enjoyed wearing it very much.

Beautiful pattern but not super flattering for me

I rented this dress for my birthday "fiesta" as my free VIP birthday dress. Many of the other dresses I liked were out for the date I needed but I was attracted to the beautiful pattern which seemed to fit the theme. Like the other reviewers said, the dress is pretty small on top, making it look like it's belling out from the bust a lot. If you're petite, this dress might add the appearance of weight around the hips and it's a bit long. The 4 fit me but the dress I got had a flawed zipper, making it hard to zip the dress up unassisted and without "soaping" the zipper a little. This is the first time I've gotten a dress that wasn't in perfect condition from RTR. I did get double use out of the dress by wearing it to a mother's day brunch the next day with a blazer. Cute pattern but not my favorite dress. The top of the back of the dress is very cute.

Gorgeous colors.

I really did love the dress. The issue was of course the band that goes across the ribs. It was so tight I couldn't zip up the size 12, which was too big anyway. I zipped the 10 and put it over my head already zipped. Fit great, no need for a bra. But that band will literally suck the air out of you. Otherwise a great dress that I wish I could buy!

Very bright, unique, colorful. Received many compliments.

This dress fit great up top and has adjustable straps. I was able to wear a strapless bra; just had to safety pin the bra in the back to keep it hidden. Runs a little small, so I ended up wearing the larger size rental.

Colorful and fun!

This dress is really fun and summery. This arrived as a back-up dress but I didn't end up wearing it to the wedding. I could not get it to zip up past my rib cage. Since this was a last-minute selection, I did not take the time to read any of the reviews. If I had, I would have known that other wearers had issues zipping it up as well. The waistband area has absolutely ZERO stretch. I did not feel like breaking the dress just to zip it over my ribs, so I couldn't wear this. I'm not really sure if you can wear a bra with this, and I noticed that the darting in the front might make your chest look odd. Again, since I couldn't get it zipped I'm not completely sure on that.

So cute and flattering on!

I rented this dress for my Birthday. This dress was sent to me because my original dress came ripped and worn looking. This dress was beautiful, flirty, and fun to wear. I wore it for my birthday in Florida. It was perfect. Plus the costumer service was the best!

Stunning print!

I needed a fun dress for my birthday - and this was the dress for me! I wanted a bold print in a great cut and this dress has both. The print looks like embroidery, but it's a beautiful silk print. I paired it with a great pink blazer since it was still chilly here. Like another reviewer, I found the top a bit loose, as I'm smaller on top. The waist band was tight, so I recommend sizing up (though at the risk of having the top be even looser). I am happy to report that you can wear a strapless bra with this dress if you have a low-profile one. I re-tied the bow in the back to secure the bra so it wouldn't peep out and it was fine. I was actually tempted to wear the dress again the next day as a skirt and with a blouse tied in the front, because I loved the print so much!
