Beautiful but big

The dress is a beauty, but unfortunately I could not wear it due to the straps being too lose, length a little long, and around the waist it was a smidge baggy (in the back area)

Received lots of compliments! The dress code was "Resort Casual"

I should have ordered a size down but the waist would've been too tight. The bust runs large. I am a 34D & I didn't fill the top. I have narrow hips so I would say the bottom half could've been more fitted. Warning that the waist is small & uncompromisable- meaning no give.

No Top Support

Beautiful dress that did not work for my body. Absolutely no support up too for the girls - naturally large chested girls beware.

You and I are about the same size, I can go without a bra but I am worried that the straps will be to short since they are not adjustable, was that an issue with this?

Stylist Review

This dress was absolutely EVERYTHING. Running true to size, this Free People style is so versatile. Whether you're going to a fancy brunch or night out, this dress was so comfortable and lightweight. At 5'7" the overlay of the dress hit about tea length on me. I am also a 34D so I was worried about the low back on this look and thin lining on the bust area of the dress. I was able to wear a strapless bra, but would have been more comfortable in a nubra. Pair with some wedges and statement dangling earrings to add a little glam to this look.

Cute, unique dress!

This dress is lovely, but requires a special bra or no bra. It was also a little big, so I opted not to wear it. I think it would be great on someone with a slightly bigger chest, though!

Cute dress, bad fit

This was my free birthday dress, otherwise I probably would've tried to exchange it. I ordered a size 2 (the 0 wasn't available), and was absolutely swimming in it. Since I'm not curvy up top I had to tape the dress to my backless bra just to avoid a wardrobe malfunction. Even with that, there was still a large gap in the fabric under my arms. The dress was also way longer than expected; I'm 5'6 and was wearing 5 inch heals, and the dress was still almost down to my ankles. I don't know who this dress would fit well on, but it's definitely not me.

The dress details stood out.

The dress was unique and stood out, I received many compliments. I loved the detail and how it fit in the body but the bust area as well as the straps weren't a perfect fit. The straps were extremely loose. I didn't have any other options so I made it work.

Perfect for a wedding shower!

Loved this dress for a wedding shower! I got a ton of compliments! The dress did run a little small for a curvier girl like me so I went a size up to be more comfortable. Wore a sticky cup bra underneath because the dress itself does not provide any support if you are large chested. Really wanted to keep it!

Sexy and strappy dress - perfect for a party

The straps on this dress and open back make this a very fun and sexy dress to wear. Perfect for a wedding, casual or more formal. The dress is form fitting, the under slip is form fitting and short then the lace that comes over it is longer with a bit more give. Highly recommend!

This dress is very ill fitting and the straps were way too loose.

Free people is such a hit or miss for me. I got a size 8....and it was huge on me. The straps were too loose and just didnt fit well at ALL. Extremely disappointing.

Perfect for a beach wedding!!!

What an amazing dress!! I got so many compliments on how unique this dress was and even more fitting for a beach wedding! I am 5'9" and 127lbs. I ordered a size 2 and 4 as back up. The 2 was a bit too big but I was able to pull it off. The back is low and there is a mesh area in the front so you need to have sticky boobs as a bra. I loved this dress!!!

Beautiful lace/print combo - will definitely stand out in a room

I was pretty worried about fit after reading all the reviews, but pulled the trigger anyways for a friend's graduation. It was the perfect midi length on me when paired with 4 in chunky heels. Yes, the straps and top around the chest are long and loose. Waist down for me wasn't too large or too small; I thought it was just right. I ended up using fashion tape to mold the top half where I wanted it to be. I taped the back straps lower on my back to lift the top up and in a couple other places for just an overall lift and to make tighter. It took a second but it worked. Definitely received compliments; one random guy came up to me and said I was the best dressed in the room for sure, ha! Overall, beautiful dress with quality lace and a unique print. Fun, sexy, and sophisticated.

I loved this dress it was just slightly to big if I would have had the size 4 it would have been even more perfect. It was sooo pretty, and cut and fun and unique I can't wait for the next event I need to get a dress for!!

It was perfect, I wore this for a fiesta night of my bachelorette party!

The chest was a bit loose but I am only a 34 A/B and did not wear a bra as it has an open back. Sticky boobs with some padding would be perfect! It was nice and long, I am 5' 11'' and a size 8/10 hips and 4/6 waist so it worked great!

RTR Stylist Review

Fun and stylish Printed Lace Sweetheart Midi Dress! Easy to wear and extremely comfortable. Running true to size, we recommend going one size up for backup. With stretch in the fabric and a loose fit in the bust, this dress is best for cup sizes A - C. The midsection is fitted yet comfortable. If you’re curvier, you may want to consider sizing up due bust area. One thing that I love about this dress is the open shoulder detailing; however you can still wear any standard bra. The cream lace and back detailing make this dress super flattering. This dress is perfect for any outdoor or day time occasion. It would look best with your favorite heels and accessories.

Beautiful, Different, Stand-Out

The dress runs large, I usually wear a size 4, wore the size 2. The dress is not supportive, make sure you have the right undergarments. I wore lacy strapless bra that showed quite a bit in the back but blended in with the lace on the dress.

The compliments!

This dress is perfect for a wedding! But unfortunately the top was very big. I would suggest this dress for women who have somewhat of a bigger chest area! Overall loved it just wish it would have fit better at the top!

Perfect dress for the Belmont races!

The straps are a little bunchy on the back, and I did keep having to pull it down- but it was a perfect dress for someone who is tall.

Chic and Sophisticated

So, I originally rented a jumpsuit for this wedding, then RTR contacted me telling me they were unable to send it and I'd have to look for something else. Filled with anxiety, I looked through the options and eventually stumbled across this dress. It's totally not something I'd normally pick, and being 5'1" - I wasn't sure how it'd fit. Well! I loved it! I got the 12 thinking it'd run small, but it actually was a little big! For a smaller bust with a shorter torso the straps may be the only issue. But it was long, comfortable, and really flattering to my curves (and hid my problem areas). Only issue was the back was a little lower so I had to tuck the dress into my bra (kind of) to prevent ppl from seeing it. It was very long for my height but with heels - the length was completely do-able.

Lovely for a Garden Scene

Wore to a food and wine tasting event set outdoors under tents. Many compliments. Was very comfortable and I did not worry about any clumsy people who may have drank a little much spilling on me, since the pattern could hide it so well.

Different from anything I've rented before!

Other reviews said it runs large, so I ordered a 0 and a 2 (my normal size). Ended up wearing the size 0 and it was perfect. Definitely need a NuBra or sticky boobs for this one. So many compliments all night!

Worn at my bridal shower and it was EVERYTHING!

This dress is beautiful! I love that I was able to achieve a bridal look without wearing white to my shower. I also love that the dress balances being classic/modest and unique/figure flattering. I was concerned about cut of the dress being too tight around my ribs (after reading other reviews), but the dress was so comfortable that I wore it all day! The straps/chest of this dress run large (1-2 sizes up) while the rest of the dress runs true to size. It was the PERFECT dress for my outdoor bridal shower!

Great for an outdoor, FL wedding

The dress was really pretty and I received LOTS of compliments. However, the dress was a bit worn a stretched out. I didn't fit perfectly in the waist and as you can see in the picture, the straps didn't stay put. Overall, it was a pretty dress and great choice for the occasion...just wish it would have fit better.

Very cute dress but did not fit right.

Loved the design of the dress, but the straps where too long and kept bunching outward on me. I am 5'3" and the straps and top did not fit well. It was also hard for me to find a bra (even backless) that I could hide with the way the lace dips down. If you are taller this dress will most likely fit you great!

Great print but runs large

The lace is pretty and the underlaying fabric is nice. But the fit is way off. Too large on top and loose in the stomach/hips. Could potentially be great if sized down works for you. This dress does offer an overall sexy feel with unique textures. Great dress just cut odd and runs big.

I wore a 2R. I am 5' 5" and 130 lbs. The top was a bit big on me but other than that it was perfect. I got a lot of compliments.

So many compliments on this unique dress! Destination wedding rehearsal dinner choice.

This ran large. I am usually a 4-6 in dresses (more often a 6 when it comes to fitted/no stretch dresses due to the rib cage/chest area) and the 4 was even large. The straps ran a bit long and are not adjustable. I was still able to wear this without fashion tape. I just had to be mindful of my posture. The length was longer than intended, but even at 5'3" I was still able to wear this. I wore a 3" chunky nude heel and I would wear this height at a minimum.

This dress was AMAZING! It's beautiful and wears so well. The 8 wasn't available so I wore the 10 instead...it was roomy and comfortable which wasn't a problem. I wore an adhesive style bra that was perfect for the backless style. I definitely recommend this dress if you're wanting a sexy yet feminine look.

great dress for summer or weddings! very comfortable too!

I thought this dress was very comfortable and i got a lot of compliments on it. It's very pretty and fit well. The straps and top were slightly loose but i think the smaller size wouldnt have fit on my hips. Its great because its sheer below the knee too.

He overall fit was wonderful just a little loose in the straps in the in the back - nothing that complicates the wear. Loved that did not have to wear a bra.

Perfect dress for a bridal shower

Very pretty dress so many compliments, great for athletic body types. This dress is much more purple then the picture and model show. It doesn't have much give and it's a heavier lace so not great for a hot day because doesn't breathe well. I probably could've gone down a size but it does fit true to size. Wearing a bra with this dress is tricky luckily I had a purple bralette that worked well with the color fabric under the lace. There is also a little peep hole in the chest that I didn't notice in photos but I didn't love because if I went without a bra it would've been too revealing for me. The straps were a little big that's why a size down might have been better. I would recommend to someone else!

Not my favorite

I did not like this one at all. Although the dress is pretty and I love the lace, I hated the fit. It was super big, wish I ordered a size smaller. The straps were way big on me and I'm 5'9". Order a size smaller than your normal

So unique and unlike other white-ish lace dresses!

Great length, I am 5'9 and about 135 lbs. and it was definitely the perfect length. I wish I had worn dainty heels instead of laced flat sandals. The dress was big in the chest area, but nothing noticeable. Ultra flattering for my height/build, and modest enough for my bridal shower, while still edgy enough to not feel like a stereotypical bride :)

Perfect for a semi formal summer wedding!

Loved this dress! Although it was clearly worn quite a few times because the fragile lace was starting to look shabby but you couldn't tell unless looking closely so it didn't really bother me. I ended up wearing my backup sized down. The top was still baggy on my small chest so I had to wear a padded strapless and use tape to secure it other than that the fit was perfect.

This is such a unique, statement dress! Received so many compliments on the beauty of this dress.

I'm 5'9" and this dress hit me right at about mid-shin length so definitely a perfect dress for those of us who are taller! Only con about this dress would be the bust size. It was too big in that area for me and you can't really wear any sort of bra because it's open back and lace in the front. A 0 probably would've fit better, I wear a 36B. Overall, this dress is comfortable, eye-catching, and all around just something you don't see everyday. I absolutely loved it!

I received SO many compliments on this dress, even from the wedding photog. I was unique and fun!

The 10 I received was too big everywhere. The 8 fit great on my hips but was loose on my bust, which is small. I had to buy a special backless bra to give it a little more padding and oomph, it wouldn't have fit without the bra. If you have a larger bust, there would be room, but not a lot of support, I don't think. Overall, it was cute, fit reasonably well, and was basically my ice breaker at a wedding where I didn't know anyone!

Unique and easy to wear!

Not my usual style but that's what I liked about it. Rented the 0 and the 2 and wore the 2 for more room in the bust. Very comfortable and got many compliments.
