Very comfortable and flattering.
I didn't have the belt, but wore it without the belt. Got a lot of compliments on it. Different than the standard LBD.

Fun dress with just the right pop of color!
I rented this dress for a holiday work party, where the dress was business casual, so I didn't want to rent anything too formal. I didn't notice a big difference between the small and extra-small, since the dress is loose, but the belt loops on the extra-small were sewn flat to the dress, so I figured the belt would lay flat better and not scrunch. I really liked this dress, because you could dress it up or down (I could have easily worn in for a night out). I wore it with black tights and pumps and a fun chunky necklace. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture. I would definitely recommend this dress!

Really cute but ouldn't wear it
Unfortunately the dress (both sizes) was sent without the green sash, which is kind of what I loved about it. Nicely made dress otherwise and I'm sure it would have been great! Customer service was excellent. Had it timed out differently they would have been able to send me the sash, it just didn't work out so they gave me a credit.

Great dress for a dressy casual party
I loved this dress. Even though the L was a bit roomy on top, it was a bit longer than the M and the belt loops hit me at a more flattering spot. The sash makes the dress, but I did have to keep adjusting it so that it bloused out the way it is shown on the model. I found a necklace that was similar to the one shown and felt that it added just enough sparkle to the dress.

This was a very ill fitting dress. The sash was strange and work don't stay put. I have a long waist and the loops were hitting my rib cage. I didn't end up wearing it

Great Lines
I wore this for a business event. It was perfect for that but the quality was less then I expected. The sash with it was very hard to keep correctly placed. A nice dress. It felt a little shorter then it looks like it would be, Light enough fabric, very forgiving.

Great dress. Easy to wear and very flattering. It is boxy if you do not use the sash. I had a lot of fun walking around town in this dress.

I wore this because it was the best of the two choices I made.
This has no stretch around the toosh . AND the yellow band was so wide, it covered my entire torso leaving a huge yellow saturn ring around my belly. I was uncomfortable all night.

Great dress for a trendy professional look!
I rented this dress for a business meeting-- it was perfect! I did not use the green belt that it came with-- instead I used a black stretch belt I owned. This dress was comfortable and professional looking-- but also fun and made me feel funky (in a good way).

Nice dress; did not make my heart go pitter pat
For some reason, the edging around the blue strip and edges of the sleeve where the grey starts really bothered me. Aesthetically, this dress is beautiful, with rich and bold colors, but I could not get my mind wrapped around the strip of frayed black fabric between the brighter colors and the navy body of the dress. Also, the pockets are sewn into the lining of the dress. You have to find the slit in the dress, then hunt around in the lining for the pocket. I folded the skirt under about a foot, and wore it as a tunic with skinny jeans. Might as well get some fun out of it before returning.

Cute casual-ish party dress...
So this dress looked quite a bit different on me than it did on the model (maybe because I'm so short, lol?) But it was well-received, and it worked nicely for the event that I went to. A party that was a bit below cocktail, and a step above casual. It was totally comfortable, and somewhat customizable (courtesy of the sash), so I don't have any complaints. It wasn't anything super spectacular, just a good all-around party dress.

Runs small in terms of length. I liked the length of the large even though the medium fit better. Belt does not work.

I wore this for a friends birthday. I ordered a small and was drowning in it. I ended up having to pin part of the back but I still received lots of compliments on the dress! It photographed wonderfully and was a blast to dance in!

Styled for an out-of-town event with ease!
I was traveling for a work event and didn't want to have to deal with packing and steaming a dress. I had this one delivered to my hotel and it was so nice. The dress itself was not my favorite RTR dress ever - it was a little tougher to wear because of the belt. The belt was flattering and cute in its bright color, but would easily bunch up and shift and just not stay in place. Other than that, I loved it! Unfortunately, I totally forgot that I had rented earrings to go with it - didn't discover those tucked in the garment bag until I went to pack up the dress for return.

Perfect for party
This was my first RTR dress and I wasn't too sure what to expect. The belt needed a serious pressing the day before, but easily remedied . The fit was great, not too short, which I thought would be the case. My only negative was the belt itself. I wish that the dress had "belt loops". I wasn't too sure where the belt should sit on the dress and it did bunch up a few times during the night and I had to readjust.

It ran really large. The belt didn't stay wide and flat, it wasn't super flattering. Maybe on someone talller it would look better.

Great Dress! Belt Sash was Eh...
Loved this dress! Wore it for a bachelorette party and was comfortable dancing the night away! However I wore a different belt than the one that came with the dress. What comes with the dress is actually a fabric sash and has little structure. If you have another bright belt that you can wear then definitely order this dress, if not then I would be cautious. Also the pockets on my dress weren't attached to the lining, so I kept putting items in what I thought were the pockets, only to have them come out the bottom of my dress, so be careful!

Perfecet for a job interview!
I rented this dress for a job interview and it was perfect. I was a little bit nervous since on the model it looks more appropriate for a cocktail hour, but it was a lot more conservative in real life! Loved it!

My RTR experience was pretty amazing!
I rented this dress for my husband's 30th birthday. The event was in another state so I was horrified to see that I forgot to pack the belt (sash) that came with the dress. I had to run out and buy a belt to wear and unfortunately I didn't do a very good job. The colors were too similar to look good together but oh well. I really wanted to find a thick lime green one but didn't have any luck. The dress fit great and was really comfortable. I'm extremely pleased with my RTR experience.

Unusual dress
I ordered the S and the M. The S fit on top but was snug at the hips. I opted to wear the M but the top felt a little sloppy. Loved that I could wear a regular bra and the dress has pockets (which is a plus). I had to steam the belt because it was very wrinkled. Also the dress is navy which doesn't come across in the photo. I thought it was black so I wore it with black tights and heels. I felt comfortable all night but I wasn't impressed enough to want to rent it again.

I added this dress onto an existing order just in case my other dress did not fit. I did not end up wearing this dress or even trying it on because my other dress fit so well. Cute though!

Really wanted to love this one...
I ordered a Large and Medium. The Large was a bit to big for me, even considering the dress is meant to be loose fitting (especially on top) anyway. The Medium would have been perfect except that my hips were too much for the bottom half of the dress to handle. The lining is great, but it was too tight to sit smoothly on me. A really cute dress otherwise, though the only structure is from the included yellow cloth belt. The dress itself is just a shift. I'm sure it would work on someone taller or a bit less hippy than me.

Cute Dress but Beware of Belt!
I rented this dress in two sizes for my work holiday party. The dress was cute (if a little snug through the hips) but BOTH dresses arrived without the belt! I saw other reviewers had had problems with their belts, so I planned to use one I already own, so that may be a problem if you are away from home. Otherwise, I received lots of compliments - make sure to pair it with a fun statement necklace and you are good to go.

The colors are fantastic!
This dress isn't fitted, but is cut very flattering. The belt really makes it. I picked this as a back-up dress for one party, but ended up wearing it for a different party the same weekend and LOVED it. So comfortable and fun to dance in. The only con is the pockets. They don't really make sense and the pocket is in the slip, but the exterior pocket isn't attached to the actual pocket.

The sash wasn't in a flattering place and made shoulders look bulky/hips look wide. The colors were also a little tacky.

This dress is the definition of "easy to wear."
I rented this dress as my backup and loved it so much, I ended up wearing it to a work conference earlier in the day. It is one of those perfect outfits that is completely work appropriate but trendy enough to wear to drinks or dinner at the end of the day. The sash does require some adjusting but it more or less stays in place.

disappointed
because of the slip underneath fits more like a sheath dress around hips and thighs and even though it looks so rich on the model was worried that the fabric wouldn't translate to "dressed up" at the gala

Nice Dressy- Tricky Belt
Loved this dress overall. I got great compliments on it and it was the perfect dress for an engaement party (not too dressy, but just right) The only tif I had with the dress was the belt. The picture makes it look very flattering and "just right" however the belt was a very light silk material, wrinkled and because its not sown onto the fabric the belt doesnt stay in place. I had to use the complimentary fabric tape which worked wonders!

I absolutely love this dress and wish I could own it! It was so comfortable and looked great. I received a ton of compliments from everyone, from the partners at my firm to my friends. It worked perfectly to go from the office to cocktail party to dinner with friends. Absolutely great dress!
