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!

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!

I was skeptical about this dress. I didn't wear this but loved it and will rent again. Fit my 34d bust perfectly.

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.

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.

Bohemian Beauty

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.

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

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.

Most compliments I've ever received!

I loved this dress from the minute I laid my eyes on it while browsing RTR. The fit was great EXCEPT for a smaller bust the straps don't adjust - so I ended up pinning the side so it felt a little tighter up top. And grabbed a backless bra for some filler in the bust! Lots of compliments and friends wanting to rent the same dress. Not great for dancing (restricted legs/no split) but I wore this to a rehearsal dinner / cocktail party and it was just perfect. It's GORGEOUS! Highly recommended.

Gorgeous and very light weight dress! So unique and received so many compliments!

Love the fit of this dress. The light weight material made it great for a summer wedding! I linger between a 2 and a 4. The 2 fit great. The straps on the back were a little long and I have to pin them so they did not appear loose. Would certainly buy or rent this dress again!!

RTR SAVES THE DAY!

I'm usually a size 8 but ordered a 6 as a second size after reading the reviews. When I received the dresses, the 6 was too loose in the bust and back straps! I called customer service and they overnighted a size 4, which was a better fit. Thank you RTR for saving the day!

Purses with Purpose event

I rented this dress for an event I hosted and it was great. I received SO many compliments and people kept asking me where I got it. I ordered only one size (4R) and throughout the night it seemed to stretch out. I wish I would've gotten the smaller size for a snugger fit. I loved it though

Romantic, Lace, Sheer, & Sexy

I loved the lightweight fabric of this dress! The lace and detail were very pretty and I had compliments all night. The top runs a little large (and I don't have small boobs), so I would just be mindful of sizing. I wore the smaller of the 2 that I rented.

Perfect dress for casual California wedding!

The top runs a little big but I was able to wear a strapless that goes very low in the back. Oh was a little hard to walk because it was tight through the legs, but I managed to dance all night! Got so many compliments!

Great Dress!!

I received so many compliments on this dress. I rented this for a wedding, it is very comfortable and great for those summer events. If you are a little bustier like myself and need to wear a bra i do not recommend wearing a strapless one. The back of the dress hangs low and it can be seen which i found myself tucking it in all night. I should have worn my backless bra with the sticky sides. I would definitely rent this dress again!

Perfect dress for Summer wedding!

I loved this dress the minute I saw online, and got compliments all night! I was worried about Free People not fitting well/running small, so ordered an additional size. The dress fit great, and the size 10 was perfect with room to spare...and best of all didn't have to wear a bra :) would totally recommend!!

Not flattering

Had to send this back couldn't wear it. I found it very unflattering, the straps were cutting into me even though it zipped up fine. Also the fabric is cut a little funny and the different pattern lines were not flattering to my hour glass shape at all.

Cute but not form fitting

The dress was super cute but the straps were way too long and since the back was low I was unable to wear my waist shaper. I wore one of those sticky bras and was fine with support but I didn't necessarily feel comfortable in the dress because I felt it fit boxy through the body. I'd recommend if you have a good strapless/adhesive bra and you're comfortable with your midsection. If not, it's a hard pass.

Worked on a bump!

I wore this 30 weeks pregnant. Most importantly, the lining underneath the dress is SHORT. My booty was nearly sticking out. This is not a comfortable dress and I got out of it asap. All this being said, I think it looked great--really fun dress. Also, a bigger bust is better--I had to pin the top because it was too loose.

So many compliments and very comfortable!

I rented the 4 and 6 but I had to wear the 4. I am 5'8" and the purple lining underneath the dress was a little short, but for the top to fit I could not wear the 6. I felt very comfortable all night and got so many compliments. This is definitely a rent-worthy dress!

Ran a little small! I have larger chest and hips/butt so I went a size up because it's more form fitting! Got so many compliments. Didn't have to wear a bra! The design was gorgeous and the colors! Would rent again for sure.

Cute dress, not great on me

I liked the lace overlay style with the sundress top, but the pretty color dress underneath is washed out by the heavy cream lace, which was not a great coloring on me. I had read reviews stating it ran big, but it runs really, really large. I thought I wouldn't mind it a little roomy, but it was falling off. The girls were hanging out almost even after I pinned the straps up. I'd say go 2 sizes down unless you like things loose and have a larger chest than I do.

Tons of compliments!

Definitely read reviews on the straps in the back. I, like the other girls, had to pin it in the back. The 2 fit a bit better than the 4 in the bust. Wore to a museum and viewed a tribute to the wonderful James Galanos.

Unique dress, runs large

Rented for outdoor Georgia wedding in late September - very unique dress and received compliments on it, but it does run very large (Specifically in the chest/back - I'm a 32B). Also, the length was much longer than expected - I'm 5'4" and the lace part went down to almost my ankles, I was thinking it'd be mid-calf, so that was disappointing. You'll need to wear stick on boobs, so a padded bra to help fill out the chest/back is not an option unfortunately. I think this dress (in a size 0) would perfectly fit someone who is ~5'6" who has a broader back/C cup size.

Birthday dress!!

I wore this dress to my past birthday dinner. The lace detail, soft colors, and sexy back sold me immediately. The only con I had was that the waistline was kind of high, so it didn't hit me at my most flattering spot.
