Such a flattering dress, and I recieved so many compliments!
Please note that the material of this dress is very thick! It is almost sweater-like, so do not wear in warm temperatures. Also, I fit into the size small, but the medium was just a bit more comfortable. The fabric is very stretchy. Overall, the dress was a huge success.

LOVE this dress. Awesome print
I received this dress from the fit pack program. When I saw this was one of the dresses I was getting I couldn't wait to try this one on. I am a big fan of Parker dresses. The dress looks amazing on the hanger but it was sure tight on! I am larger busted and have an hourglass shape and should of tried on a medium instead of a small. The dress is short and sexy which is great for a night out especially in the winter. The material that the dress is made out of is very thick and warm. The sleeves were a little long on me but that didn't bother me. This is a hot dress!

A little bit of stretch with the material but not much, fit true to size.

Wedding Shower
Very cute dress! This is definitely a great option if it is cold out, as the fabric is very thick and insulating. The dress is pretty short, so I ended up wearing tights underneath, which turned out to be great bc of the weather. My only (minor) complaint is that the waist line hits a bit high so it is not as flattering as I thought that it would be.

Eye catching and got lots of compliments!
Thick almost sweater-like material which is great for the fall. Print is so unique and eye catching, I received a ton of compliments on the dress. It is a little on the short side so if you are tall be careful! Fabric was thick and fitted but with a little stretch to it.

I pretty much have your same body type (although I'm a few inches shorter). I usually wear an xsmall in Parker, but do you still recommend getting the small instead of an xs? Thanks!
brookeNovember 1, 2013
Hi there! The XS was SUPER short. I wouldn't have been able to actually leave my apartment wearing it. Otherwise it still would have fit, but I think due to the fabric the small was much more comfortable. Plus the sleeves on the XS were a little too short on me as well.

Way Too short
I originally ordered a small and xtra small but only received the extra small. I did call the 1800 number and was told that the small must have been unavailable. It is a beautiful dress but runs extremely short. I am 5'8" and the xrta small fit more like a shirt than a dress. Unfortunately I was unable to wear it to the wedding. :(

I rented this style for my birthday.
I ordered a 4, but probably would have been more comfortable in a 6. I'm a bit fuller on top so it was a little tight. The material was very thick, so perfect for a cold, winter night, if your on the east coast, but unfortunately, I'm in LA so I was a bit warm. The dress was also a little short and kept riding up from time to time, but I received many compliments.

This dress is super cute, flattering, & sexy! I felt great in it!
This dress is SHORT. Definitely size up if you are tall and/or have a booty. I am a size 4 and wore the medium in this dress. The waist is also fairly high on the dress, so if you are long-waisted, it might be an awkward fit for you.

A beautiful dress made my birthday celebration complete!
I was really pleased with this dress. The material is thick so it is perfect for colder weather but I didn't feel the need to wear tights with it; I think the length lends itself to showing off those legs! Though it is short, it felt very snug. I never felt like it was riding up or anything like that. It fit my body like a glove.

This dress is TINY.
This dress was very tight and short. The XS couldn't even be zipped, and the small wasn't much better. It was tight all over, very short, but the sleeves were too long. It is also a much thicker fabric than I thought. I think if it fit right it would've been a really cute dress.

Wore this for my birthday dinner. Loved it
I ordered the xs and small. I wore the small bc the xs was soooo short. I wish I had worn the xs anyway bc as the night went on the very thick material stretched a lot and was bulky on top
MiaJanuary 14, 2014
Thanks for the review! I love this dress and am thinking about ordering it for a semi formal event at my university but I have a couple concerns. I noticed a lot of people said it was warm, there will be some parts of the night where people are dancing and I'm worried it may be too hot and sweater-like. Was it like wearing a sweater dress? My second concern is the stretching, I noticed a lot of people had stretching especially around the hem of the dress?

This dress is short. I'm 6'0 and it was too short on me. I had a medium and a large. I am usually a size 6, but the medium was too small.

For when you want to be sexy and elegant
It's short. I won't lie to you. But with sheer stockings and black heels, it was a perfect fit. Combined with the sleeves and neckline, it totally worked. I felt sexy AND formal. The black ribbing was my favorite party. I got a size small (which I usually wear) and medium. Opted for the medium because the thick fabric doesn't stretch much. If you have large breasts, you'll probably feel pretty constricted. Again, fabric doesn't give. Overall, one of my favorite RTR dresses.

Super cute dress but way too short!
Dont get me wrong, I love short dresses, especially for a long sleeved dress, I wanted to show off my legs but I was going to an awards show after party and I couldn't imagine bending down! I did wear it to dinner the night before the party ( This was my backup choice, but I was sitting the whole time) I wore the M even though I had the L, but the L was not longer so I wore the M. The material is super thick so its great for a cold evening but be aware that because the fabric is thick it does provide some padding...I loved it, but wish it wouldve been a tad longer

I wore this dress for a formal date party in November. The material was really thick and sweater-like, which was perfect for the cold weather. It also hugs your body but since the material is so thick and there's a big pattern, it's not bad at all! Definitely recommend it!!

Cozy and gorgeous fit.
The dress fit true to size, if a bit snug in chest and hips. It was a little shorter than expected, but looked fine with tights. It was a very warm dress, so it was perfect for the colder season. I wish I could own it!

So classy!
As the other reviews stated, this dress is VERY VERY short. I am 5'8" and quite skinny, and I wore a large. Sounds crazy, but compared to the medium it had about 1/2 an inch of length to spare and still fit as snug. It could be because of my long legs and long arms. If I hadn't been wearing it to a formal event, I would have definitely worn the medium. Very thick dress, but very comfortable. I got countless compliments all night. Very happy with it overall.

Cute and warm
This dress is very unique, and I received a lot of complements, however, I would only recommend if you need a little warmth and do not mind the thickness of the dress. I would have worn the xs, but it was a little too short.

NYE 2014 with RTR! Thank you RTR for helping me start a New Year looking Beautiful!!!
I rented this dress in an XS with a Small as my back up. I use to be an XS and now wear a Small but i wanted to decide for myself which size I'll wear depending on the fabric of the dress and whatnot. Two days before I'm suppose to receive my rental, RTR had a situation where the size Small got damaged so they quickly contacted me and updated me with the back up plan. They sent me the XS in the dress and upgraded me to another style in a Small. I was so worried because I really wanted to wear Parker Blanche Sheath; I loved it so much I had rented it over a month in advance. I'm just so glad I was able to squeeze into the XS and make it look good! FIT: It might be tight at first but once you spend time in it it'll stretch slightly (to my benefit) Good if you are in between sizes I'm a short person so I LOVED that the dress is SHORT (Mini Dress) This dress was perfect for me!!! PROS: The style is absolutely STUNNING and EYE CATCHING! Most importantly WARM for this time of year! RIGHT ON! Again, Thank You RTR for making everything possible for me to enjoy my event! Will rent again for sure ;D

This dress was perfect for the fall charity event I attended! I got tons of compliments all night!
This was my first RTR dress and the fit was absolutely perfect! I like my mini dresses snug, so it zipped me right in and hugged in all the right places all night. You don't even need to wear a bra if you don't want to! Length was perfect and hit mid-thigh on me. I ordered a XS and a S and went with the XS.

I wore this dress to a bridal shower in New york in Jan. Fit like a glove and material kept me warm.
My first RTR experience.Great for winter events. Thick material of the dress (stretchy though) paired with thick stockings and ankle boots kept me warm during the Jan Bridal shower. Great for Petite girls with the shoulders fitting correctly which I sometimes have problems with gathering at the top or in the back but not with this dress. Waist was comfortable did not feel tight in mid section length runs short without tights may have went up a size.

Great dress!!
I rented this dress for a NYE Party and was very happy with the dress. The fabric is thick (almost sweater-like) so it was perfect for a cold winter night. The only negative thing about this dress is that it runs a little short. I am only 5'3'' and it was pretty short on me. Overall I would definitely recommend this dress!

Great dress, WAY too small!
If the dresses I ordered were the right size, they would've been perfect for my night. However, I ordered both an XS and S, and there was NO WAY I was going to fit into either of them! The dress is also VERY short, even for a petite 5'-1" person! I would recommend sizing way up--otherwise, the dress was too cute!

The design of this dress is beautiful. I wore it to a Dallas wedding and received many compliments!
The fit is snug and size runs small. I'm a tall girl and the length is short so I had to order a size up. The large fit me very well.

Fun party dress!
Loved this dress. I wore it to a friend's winter wedding in Pennsylvania. The dress is thick and perfect for a winter event. I usually wear a size small, but the dress is very short, so I opted for the medium. If you if are taller, I would recommend ordering a size up.

Got tons of compliments at company holiday party
The fabric is thick, but not bulky. It was perfect for a night out in San Francisco (usually ~50 degrees fahrenheit), since it was warm enough on its own such that I didn't have to wear a jacket. Like other reviewers have said, it's short, but not short enough to cause you to worry about it all night. I was able to tear it up on the dance floor just fine without worrying about flashing anyone. Check out the second photo of my bf holding me to see the dress' coverage when put to the test haha

Fun NYE!
Rented for NYE - I wanted to stay away from the glitzy but still wear something fun and this was it! It was super thick so no coat needed, but paired it with tights. As mentioned in some other reviews it is short so be careful if you're tall - I'm only 5'3. It was tight - I wore my normal sizing but could have probably worn the 2 and be fine as well. It sucked everything nicely.

Not meant for girls with muscle
This dress looked perfect for my boyfriends work party, but when I received it, I couldn't even get the sleeves over my arms. I'm not super muscular, but not a stick either. I usually wear size 4 in dresses. Thankfully I had ordered a back up which fit perfectly.

Unique design. A size up WILL be needed.
Nice dress but I didn't have much luck with sizing. The the material doesn't give at all. I'm a slim women and I had to get two sizes up from what I usually wear. Pattern very unique.Very heavy material so this dress is perfect for fall/winter events.

Lovely pattern, unique style
This dress is really, really tight. I managed to get it on, but I'm only 5' 2" and it barely covered my behind! Since it was winter, I wore it with opaque spanx tights because if I hadn't, my underwear would have been showing - that's how short it is. I have no idea how a 5' 10" model wears this, but it's super short on a short person. So if you're OK with that - go for it!

Didn't end up wearing it but its still so pretty!
I liked this dress a lot but it is extremely tight. I had the hardest time zipping it up. Its very pretty but SO SHORT. I am only 5'5" and you could almost see my butt when I walked. I wouldn't recommend this for women with a larger backside or women over 5'5". I think the large would have worked better for me because I do have a larger butt. I would probably rent again in a large if I have an even that this would be appropriate for!

Such an awesome pattern!
This dress was super comfortable! The fabric wasn't as thick as I thought it would be but I sure did not need a coat. While dancing in it I got a little hot so I would advise against wearing it to an active event. The pattern is so different then anything I have seen before and thats why I gravitated towards this dress. It was a great fit and looked awesome in pictures! I got so many complements on it!
