Unusual, flattering dress
I was nervous renting this one, but was my favorite RTR dress yet. You have to self tie it, but that was easy and I got it right one the first try. I were no bra, but it wasn't an issue because the dress was supportive.

The best dress I've ever worn.
This dress- I can't say enough good things about it. My friend and I both wore it as bridesmaids- the regular length fit my petite 5'7" frame perfectly in flats and the Long fit her curvy body perfectly at 5'10". We received endless compliments on this dress and I have never felt more beautiful. For a hot southern outdoor wedding I could not have been more comfortable in this soft and flattering dress. I REALLY didn't want to take it off. The material was heavy enough that it did not look cheap but still thin enough to be breezy. One warning- it is see-through on the booty so have proper undergarments. If you are even questioning this at all- STOP! And just order it, you will not regret it. We also found tying tutorials on TwoBird's website.

Toga rehearsal dinner success!
Wore it to a toga-themed rehearsal dinner (amazing I know) and it was perfect! Thought it was super comfortable, didn't have to wear a bra, and loved all the different ways to tie it. We watched videos online and my husband helped me tie it this way. Would def recommend it for bridesmaids!

Beautiful dress with so many ways to wear it, it can always work for you!
I really enjoyed this dress. We had formal family pictures and had to be in white (they can photoshop this tanish color down to be white) so I rented this dress. It was very comfortable and so fun to choose what you wanted to have the straps look like! I am 5'9 and wearing flats and had to hold my dress up when I walked to just to note if you're shorter you'll need heels . So don't do what I did and get a sunburn in a line across your should which make this outfit look less than great .. whoops!

Wore for maternity photos
Well this dress definitely accommodates the bump. It was beautiful and comfortable. My only complaint is I had to hold my bump to get a cute pic. Otherwise the dress just flows like a tent and I looked obese instead of pregnant. For pictures it got the job done but I would have felt just plain fat and frumpy if I had worn this to an event.

So versatile but one size doesn't fit all!
This dress is beautiful. It was my backup dress for a military ball. I loved it but it did not fit my 5'3" 115lb frame- there was way too much fabric. But I loved the color the fabric and all the different styles it could be worn in. Also reminded me of Daenerys from Game of Thrones lol!

So fun!!
There's a lot of material to this dress but it is still lightweight and moves so nicely. It's super fun to wear! So elegant and flowy. Love all of the different ways you can wear it. The twobirds website has video tutorials to help you tie it the different ways. Beautiful champagne color wasn't too light against my fair skin tone. Would rent again!

I attended a wedding in a castle in Tuscany and this dress made me feel like a princess. It traveled so well, no wrinkles whatsoever. It was extremely comfortable and flattering and the versatile ways it can be worn truly makes it the perfect dress for everyone. I would buy this in a minute!!!

Cool concept
You can tie this dress many different ways. The fabric is a bit thin around the halter top and you can't really wear a bra (at least not the way that I tied it). Liked the versatility though.

All treat, no trick
I rented this dress as a costume for a swanky Halloween party and it was perfect. I was skeptical about the one-size-fits all, but the fit was flattering. The one thing I will say, is it runs long. So consider going for one length shorter if you aren't into tall heels! Otherwise this dress was very glamorous and the quality made it stand out among the sea of polyester costumes.

Perfect dress for Khaleesi costume
This fit perfectly. I'm only 5'1 so the length was perfect. I️ love that it can be worn different ways. I️ wore this to a late Halloween party and I️ dressed as Khaleesi. Everyone complimented my costume and thought it looked just like her! Great dress.

Stylist Review
I love how this dress can be worn so many different ways; it's super versatile! I chose to wear the Grecian Twist Middle Back. The overall fit of this dress is large (there was plenty of room in the hips and throughout the dress), although the longer length should be worn for anyone 5'7 and taller. The material is slightly heavy, but there is stretch all throughout, and will work wonderful for all body types and bust sizes. The waist is cinched, but the elastic allows for plenty of stretch. Regular undergarments can be worn depending on how you tie the dress. If you choose to do the Grecian Twist Middle Back like I did, you may want to wear a sticky bra as your back will be completely exposed. This dress can be dressed up or down depending on how you accessorize it. It would make a great bride's maid or prom gown. Since the Oyster color is so neutral, any color accessory will look great!

RTR STYLIST REVIEW
This gown is so versatile in the numerous ways you can adjust the look! I was wearing the gown as The Backless Grecian Twist. This gown is not only true to size but you can definitely wear without a bra. Due to the ornate draping of this gown, it is a little heavy! Also, with being 5'5 I would suggest a getting a Long if you decide to wear with heels. Overall this gown is effortless and a new favorite!

Stylist Review
This dress is amazing!!! I am 5'4 and the Regular length looked great. I would recommend possibly a 3 inch heel. The Size AR fit perfectly and was super comfortable. I am usually a size 0 and love how the dress looks on me. The material isn't too thin (undergarments could not be seen) and it isn't so thick that you'd be hot. Best of both worlds! This dress is great for any bust size (I wear a 34B). I did not need a bra for this dress. The dress fit well all over and is not tight in the hips at all. There is more than enough room to move around freely, walk, and dance. The fabric is very stretchy. There are no limits when it comes to what body type can wear this dress. My exact measurements are 32.5, 26.5, 37. I would hands down rent this dress again.

Stylist Review
This dress is so flattering! It may be concerning that you only have an A or B size option to choose from but I promise you'll love the way this dress fits! The material is heavy but also very stretchy and falls so nicely. I have it tied into a 'Knotted Cap Sleeve' but there are so many ways to tie and style this dress so you can find the one that's perfect for you! Definitely keep in mind if you want to tie this into a backless option, you'll want to wear a Nubra or Braza backless bra as there is no other support in the front. Also, at 5’7” I would definitely need a BL as it was about 3 inches too short on me (even with a low heel). Otherwise, it's a super fun dress to wear that lays in all the right places!

STYLIST REVIEW
This is a beautiful and versatile gown! Perfect for a bridesmaid dress or any formal event! This comfortable gown runs true to size. There is a lot of stretch in the fabric, so it works for curvier women and any cup size. The style that I wore is the Cap Sleeve Shoulder. With this particular style, you can absolutely wear a Racerback bra. Keep in mind that this material is on the heavier side, but its versatility definitely makes up for this. At 5'6", I would recommend wearing this with 2 inch heels. I simply love this dress! Pair this with a delicate necklace or simple earrings!

RTR Stylist Review!
Beautiful, elegant and comfortable! This dress is flattering for so many body types, as the fabric is stretchy and it can be tied in so many ways. I'm wearing the Halter Bow style, which I loved! So classy and fun. For this style you would not be able to wear a standard bra due to the open back. However, the halter style made me feel supported. Since I'm 5'1", it was a bit long on me so I would need to wear 4 inch heels to wear this one without tripping! Here are my bust/waist/hip measurements: 36.5, 31.5, 38. It has room for fuller busts and hips, which makes it easy to walk and dance in all night at your next event!

Stylist Review!
Not only is this dress stunning but its comfortable too! I wore the dress Halter Style. The fabric is stretchy , soft but looks expensive and sophisticated. Since I am only 5'3 , I would definitely need to wear heels with the dress as it was dragging about 3 in. The dress is backless, so you can wear it with backless bra or no bra. Being a 34D I was a little concerned about not being able to wear a bra but I was extremely comfortable at the material does offer support. To sum it up, the dress is effortless and universally flattering. Definitely one of my top choices!

Stylist Review - Knotted Tank
This dress is pure perfection. It is chic, super comfortable and works well for every body type. I typically wear a size 4, am 5'3 and my measurements are Bust-33.5, Waist-28.5, Hips- 38). The AR fit perfectly with 3 inch heels and the Knotted Tank style was very flattering and great for any bust size (I am 34A). This dress has plenty of stretch and runs true to size. It can be worn comfortably without a bra or a Nubra (depending on the style you choose). This dress is perfect for bridemaids, anyone attending a spring/summer wedding or formal event. Pair this dress with gold accessories, an Grecian Style Updo, and strappy nude pumps. Be ready for compliments all night! This dress is a must rent!

RTR Stylist Review
What an absolute dream! This style truly makes MAGIC happen! It is incredibly comfortable and the fabric feels absolutely divine each way you tie it. Mine was tied in a One Shoulder style and felt perfect. The bust area was fitted enough with the way it was tied and I would recommend either wearing pasties, a NuBra, or no bra at all with it; it truly provided support without one. The waist area was fitted, but not too much and the hip area was super roomy so be ready to dance the night away wherever you go! At 5'2", I would definitely reach for a pair of 4 inch heels or higher since the length can be a bit long for petite gals. The Oyster shade I would pair with drop earrings and a gold or blush clutch to add some sparkle to this already beautiful gown. The Blush shade I would pair with crystal studs and a fun, printed clutch. I would totally recommend this for a bridal party since it compliments so many body types!

I wore this to my senior prom.
It was very easy to tie and was comfortable the whole night! The front ended up being a little bit shorter than the back because the back tended to slide down (the material is a bit heavy and my waist is 25.5") but it's not that noticeable. I wore this with 3 inch heels and it was just the right length. Very stretchy and fuss-free because you can decide how you want to tie it and how tightly.

STYLIST REVIEW
Anyone can wear this dress! It is extremely versatile with many different methods to wear it, making it work for all body types. In the size AR, I tied the dress into the "Bucklewaist". My bust size is a 32A so the deep V wasn't as revealing but there is an open back wearing the dress this way, which I love. At 5'2, it was quite long and I'd probably have to wear my highest heels with how I wore it, but you can adjust the length a little depending on how much material you use up top. It's perfect as a bridemaid's dress or for a daytime wedding. It's a super comfortable dress that I wouldn't mind having to wear for an entire day. I would wear this with a delicate necklace and a bolder dangling earring.

Perfect formal gown for maternity!
I'm 5'8" and typically wear a size 12 dress, but the bump was challenging to fit. This dress worked perfectly - it is so versatile and flattering. Tying the knot in the back proved to be slightly more difficult than you'd think - a square knot stood out oddly, so my husband came up with an alternative: the sheet bend knot, which laid flat and looked nice and clean. I got complements all night. I highly recommend!

Super versatile dress that is comfortable and flattering on everyone!
Multiple other girls wore this dress to the same event I did but each of us styled it, wrapped it, and wore it uniquely our own so no one looked identical to each other which was great. Take some time to play around with the dress and you may need a buddy to help you as you wrap it around you to make sure the coverage is in the right areas. I also ended up using a tiny bit of fashion tape which helped.

Beautiful dress. Fit the occasion perfectly. Flattered my body. Looked great against my skin.
I loved the flexibility of this dress; one can create whatever look they want. With that flexibility, however, you have to be very intentional with the bra that you choose, because your bra will often try to peek out. This dress fits many different body types, and is a great choice for a bridesmaid dress. Overall, I was very pleased.

This dress really wasn't functional for me.
You can wear this dress a bunch of ways but you'll probably need a youtube tutorial to do it. If you can get away with wearing a paste on bra you'll be in better shape, but it didn't give me nearly enough support to make it appropriate for wearing to a wedding. The amount of fabric made it hard to work with as well. The weight ended up snapping the hanger.

This dress is SUPER FUN! Compliment after compliment all night.
I wore it to a gala for Habitat For Humanity where I was the recipient of an award and I was told I looked like a Roman Goddess. The photos here are taken at my rooftop because why not!? The dress was just amazing! Flowy, comfortable, playful, beautiful. I felt amazing in it! I'm 5'2" about 118 lbs. I was a bit concerned it was too long, but we "tall" women have a few tricks up our sleeves. After I wrapped it, I was able to tuck length in at the waist and voila 1" up :) Lee & Makenna at the NYC flagship are amazing! Thank you!

An absolute must!
Perfect for bump or bump-less bodies! Great material, very forgiving. It accentuated my tiny waist and bump at 32 weeks pregnant. Ladies who need a bra for support, this is not the dress for you. Only able to wear stickies or pasties. Multiple ways to wear it makes it so fun. Length was perfect. A bit longer in the back. I felt so stunning during my maternity photos in this dress. Plus very easy to move in and not uncomfortable (which is Uber important while pregnant). I’m 5’7” and my waist is 26 inches, bump, plus hips at 37 for sizing reference. I would also wear while not pregnant and this dress comes in a variety of colors. I think this would make an awesome bridesmaids dress as well.

Versatile and comfortable!
I rented this dress for a last minute toga party and it was perfect. It was great to have lots of options on how to wear the dress. The material is very soft and thick so it was comfortable to wear.
