Low cut neckline!

Fits true to size, however neckline is low cut and if you're busty like me - be prepared for cleavage. Couldn't wear it to work for that reason. Black halo is an overrated brand and very inconsistent with their sizing.

Beautiful color and lovely shape!

The color of this dress is really beautiful! The sleeves are very classy and it is a feminine cut. It is body hugging and has a bit of stretch, but not much. If you have a larger chest, it may be too low cut- but for me it worked well. Will rent again!

Top of dress too large

I ordered a size up in this dress as I normally do with Black Halo. The dress fit great through the body, but the shoulders and top were very large. I'm a 34C, so filling out the chest wasn't a problem, but the shoulders gaped awkwardly and were clearly too big. But, if I sized down the dress would probably be too tight over my hips and stomach. Too bad, because the color is beautiful and the shoulder detail is really pretty.

Low cut and too tight

Wanted to love this, but it was too tight. I'd suggest sizing up if you have any curves.

Too low cut

Probably fine if you don't have too much cleavage but if you're a C or bigger this is too low cut for work. Too bad because I liked the cut of the rest of the dress.

Really pretty but runs small

This dress is really pretty, love the sleeves. I always wear a size 4/6 but have learned to size up in case of brand running small. So I typically get a 6. I could not even zipper around waist. I do want to wear this dress so I am going to try the next size up and hope for the best.

Loved the lilac color

Great fabric, color and detail on the shoulders. Got lots of compliments. While i didn't feel uncomfortable with the décolleté, i agree with other reviewers that the dress doesn't hide the womxn on the balcony. ;)

A little too tight but great work dress!

I loved the color of this dress and the sleeves. The top was a little too tight but I made it work for a day at the office!

Pretty dress, too small.

I'm usually a six, sometimes a four. The six was too small overall.

Nice dress

I liked this dress! I thought it was a little tight, but I wouldn't say it runs small. I wish I had gotten a 4 instead of a 2, but the length was great for my height. If your short it'll probably hit you at a weird spot on your shins.

compliments on compliments on compliments

I don't think I've ever received so many compliments about a dress from colleagues before. Everyone liked the color and the sleeves are so interesting. It wrinkles along the lap fairly easily so I tried to use my standing desk as much as possible. True to size with little wiggle room. Definitely putting this one in the rotation—still too $$ to buy.

Felt a little self conscious in the dress at work.

I received a lot of compliments on the color of the dress, but overall I felt self conscious wearing this dress to work. The neckline was a little low for my taste and the dress wrinkled when I sat down which was very frustrating. I ordered one size up, a size 4, which fit well.

Beautiful color and quality.

Great dress for a more formal work event. It's on the tighter end and slightly lower than I expected, so just be prepared for that.

Love the color. Tough to zip up on my own. A little tight on the bust.

This was elegantly cut and is a knockout dress. I really love it. Would highly recommend and would love to see more of this brand on RTR. Black Halo dresses are always great.

Great color and fit

Looked great and beautiful color. I wore spanx to smooth everything out. It was a little low and I felt like I needed to continually check since I-was wearing it to work. Overall I'd rent it again

Beautiful color, fun style, big on bust

I love everything about this dress, however, perhaps it's meant for someone who's bustier. I'm a 34C and I had to keep pulling up the front of the dress.

A little loose all over. Flatteringly low-cut for those with smaller boobs, but may be too much for work if you are more blessed than me.

Great for work.

So pretty! Perfect for springtime in Chicago!! Ordered an 8 because 6 wasn't available, but was glad to have the 8 in the end as it fits nicely around my curves. A 6 would be too small. Neck is open but doesn't plunge so far as to show cleavage. Love it!!!!

This runs extremely small. I'm usually I size 10, but could not get the 14 to zip.

Runs small in the chest.

Neither size worked

Blah I was so disappointed in this dress. The 4 was SO tight in the stomach with no give, and the 6 middle area worked but the bust was WAY too big on me. The sleeves were also folded and looked funny. Did not care for it at all.
