Cute
Really cute dress! Love the material. The only trouble was the open back. It was just a bit too snug, so it cut me off kind of funky. I ended up wearing a cover up so you couldn't see the open back.

Classic, Cute Dress
This dress was great for a Labor Day wedding! Very comfortable, no need for bra, easy to get in and out! Wish it was a little tighter underneath the bust but overall for very well.. true to size. Looks great with silver accessories!

I got so many compliments all day. It was comfortable and looked amazing.
I am very thin and the size 2 fit me great. I loved the pockets and it was great for dancing. The skirt flowed nicely during spins. Everyone at the wedding complimented my dress. I would rent it again.

Loved it from the front! But from behind... back fat.
If you are like me and insecure about back fat, this is not the dress for you. The dress is beautiful and delicate from the front. The back is fun and the reason I got the dress. What I forgot to consider was my back-fat. If you are happy with your back and or don't mind then get this dress. I am 5'5, 170 lbs, 36B, wide hips, a true pear shape. I ordered a 10, and 12. The dress is true to size, I wore the 10. The dress is super cute. This was more my hang up than anything else.

I loved the color and shape of the dress. I got lots of compliments on the cut-out in back too!
The color was lovely, and the shape was very flattering. I had a lot of people who came back to find me during the wedding to tell me they loved the cut-out detail in the back. It was so much fun to dance in, and pockets are always an added bonus. Only issue I had was that I found that the waistline fit tight along my rib cage. I was surprised that it was that tight since I usually wear a 4 or 6, and the 6 was the size I chose to wear for the wedding (mostly because of that issue). I'm sure that tightness helps for not having to wear a bra with the dress (a bra was absolutely not necessary, but I'm also small-chested), but the fit was great otherwise, so I was surprised at that issue. Either way, I would definitely rent it again.

Beautiful color
Great for a daytime wedding. The dress is such a beautiful pale green with same color lace and lining. Just above knee length on 5'5". Nice open back detail that is not too revealing and still appropriate for a church wedding and daytime reception. Dress has pockets!

Definitely a gorgeous dress (WITH POCKETS!) It actually looks better on than in the provided pic. I'd seriously consider buying this one if I had the closet space.

Not flattering
I typically float between a size 2 and 4 and rented this for a wedding. I needed something with some sort of sleeve and liked that it had an open back that was still relatively modest. However, this dress was incredibly unflattering. It's hard to tell in the model photos, but it pouffs out SO MUCH! It made me look at least 2 dresses sizes larger. It is also more formal than I had anticipated and fairly heavy. I ended up not wearing this dress and was pretty bummed I splashed out on a rental for nothing.

Lots of compliments all night. The lower half of the dress is very full, so if you're already big on the bottom you might want to find a different dress.

I wore it with teal Converse. Looked great!
It is a very retro fit as others have said - waist is a bit snug, skirt is very full. Because you can't really wear a bra with this dress, the fit in the bust needs to be spot on - I would recommend it more for those who are C cup or smaller.

I LOVED it. I got lots of compliments & it was nice wearing something so bright for a summer wedding
I am glad I got both the 12&14, I ended up in the 14 because it was just more comfortable. The 12 was a little snug for arm movement. The dress did have an alteration of a new clasp, but it didn't make a big difference in the back. It's is poofy, but I loved it.

Great dress for the shower I threw for my cousin's "60's inspired bridal shower"
Reviews said the waist was small (and I have a small waist) so I ordered a 4 and a 6 (my two usual dress sizes). I have a small waist and the 6 fit well, but was pretty snug. Unless you have a superrrrr small waist, I would suggest ordering the size up and have your back-up size be two sizes up. I'm a 34C/D and can rarely go braless, but I went braless with this dress and it was perfect! I had some cleavage, but the flowered overlay covered it nicely :) I also rented the earrings from RTR and they matched perfectly!!!

Wedding rehearsal dinner dress
I received SO many compliments at my rehearsal dinner. This dress is beautiful, though I received it with a broken clasp. The skirt is very full, but the waist is fitted with no stretch. No bra is needed, as there is boning in the top and padded cups.

Not my favorite
It is a gorgeous dress, but it is very very full from the waist down which made me look fat! On positive side it has pockets which I loved.

This dress was classic with a versatile color! It looked flawless and had pockets!
I think it runs a little small, I typically wear a 4 in a dress, but wound up with my backup size of 6. The true waist is where it was snug, and I think it's due in part to the cutout in the back, so it's more structured at the waist. The 4 fit wonderfully as well, but I felt that as the day wore on the 6 would be more comfortable (I wore it most of a day because it was my brother-in-law's wedding so I was in several family photos). The pockets were great and I didn't need to wear a bra because the front was well constructed and thick enough that it didn't need a bra.

Just as great the second time
Rented this a second time for a fall wedding in the south. Got compliments from the elegant old southern ladies, and that's just a win in itself. It's fun to dance in, the exposed back is a little sexy without ever veering away from elegant, the color is just exquisite and makes my blonde hair pop. I paired it with beige suede shoes and purse, later at night changed into converse in the same fair turquoise color, it was a hit.

Beautiful dress
I got compliments on the dress all night. For reference I'm 5'8'', 130lbs and wore a size 2 and got a 4 for backup. the 2 fit perfectly. I was worried the dress would be a little too short, but it hit right above my knees.

Adorable!!!
As soon as you pick up the dress you can feel the quality. Good lace, lots of layers giving it an extra poof, and an appropriate length for us tall girls. I wore it to the Travers S. In Saratoga and felt like the belle of the ball.

Gorgeous dress
Wore this to a summer wedding. It was perfect for both the church and reception. The lace is beautiful and the color is somewhere between robin's egg and Tiffany blue. The waist is tight, but flattered my hourglass figure perfectly. The lining is boned to provide stability and no bra was needed. The dress did get hot while dancing, but I was able to move well. Got many compliments throughout the night. Just a classy dress!

Standout dress!
The original dress I picked was damaged so this was my second option. At first I was nervous because I wasn't sure how it would look/fit but I actually really liked this dress! The skirt is full, but not so much that it is overwhelming. I loved the open back detail. The waist was a little tight on me, but it wasn't so tight that I felt uncomfortable. I carry more weight in my hips/legs so if you carry more weight in you stomach area I would size up for comfort. No need to wear a bra because there are built in cups. Really liked this and would recommend!

Other than being careful with the type of bra you wear (if needed), there are zero cons to this dress! Absolutely loved it.

Sweet dress
This dress is beautiful in person, but as a petite person, it just overwhelmed me. The 0 was a little too tight and the 2 was just too big. I ended up exchanging it in the Chicago store (as always, RTR staff are incredible) for something with a little more give. For normal-heighted ladies, this would be perfect. I would suggest sizing up for that second size though.

Perfect for my Alice Bridal Shower
I picked this dress because it's lace blue flowers fit with Alice tea party bridal shower. The dress was gorgeous and even with 34DD I was able to go bra-less to show off the beautiful back. Everyone commented on how beautiful it was. Definitely has some poof and width in the hips so if you're self conscious about your circumference you might want to pass. Deep pockets were a wonderful touch and I was able to stash my phone and a gloss with no added bulk. Absolutely love this beautiful dress!

Fit true to size, very beautiful color, the open back detail was absolutely perfect! The skirt was very full, the layer of tulle added more fullness than expected, but it was still beautiful. Overall I was very pleased with this rental and would consider it again!

This dress was worn to a formal racing event. It was perfection.
The skirt is full and it has pockets. The material is very high quality and not one bit flimsy. The dress came on time and in perfect condition- it did not look worn at all. I am a 34D chest and I would recommend that bustier girls size up as a backup just in case. I think it runs true to size but definitely not small so for the backup- go a size up.

If you are short, flat chested, big bootied, this is NOT the dress for you.
It looked terrible on me. Like everyone else said, the waist ran really small. I was able to fit into both the 0 and the 2, but the waist came so high up on my body that the top of the dress just muffin topped on me. If I had some bigger boobs to fill it out, it may have worked. Also the fact that I have a bigger butt just made the dress flare out like crazy. I think this looks gorgeous on some of the taller girls.

Very nice dress but expect POUF.
Fit was slim but not an issue. The dress is tight around the upper waist and then has a huge pouf. I tried straightening out each layer of tulle and it helped but still, the pouf made me appear much wider than I prefer, especially since I already have hips. I wore this to a Christening and had no issue with the bare back, I loved the back of the dress. I did receive a lot of compliments that day of but I think it was prettier in person than in photos. The color is great in person and you can see the detail of the lace but in photos it's a bit washed out. All in all, I probably would not rent this dress again but it was fun for the day.

Great color and beautiful fit
I wore this to a Mother's Day brunch. RTR sent me this dress when my order wasn't going to be here in time due to a shipping delay. I ended up wearing it and loving it. It has pockets and it comfortable! The size 2 fit, but the size 4 was more comfortable for a long car ride
