This is such a pretty peacock blue with a great structure but the fit is strange - small across the shoulders which is not usually problem for me. The underskirt was much smaller than the dress. Overall pretty but uncomfortable.

Great wedding guest dress.

Incredibly flattering, and the color is a touch on the teal side, which was a pleasant surprise. It's a little snug in the shoulders, which makes dancing a little tough but I'd wear it again.

Power Dress

I felt confident for a big presentation. It is like a power suit for a woman. The fabric is thick and the top is a little tight . I wore a spanks slip to keep the bra line from happening. I didn't switch it out for a larger size because having a very fitted to is part of the overall lines.

Comfortable dress

It's a very comfortable dress.. as comfy as PJs! Just a bit tight in biceps and shoulders but I do have huge arms -- so I had to size up.

Great color - good work dress

Really well made dress. Beautiful color. Hugs to the body up to the hips. A little tight in that area if you are pear-shaped.

The pictures do not do this dress justice

I didn't take a full body shot, I have no idea why but I did want to just show the blue of this dress. It is so beautiful. I got a lot of compliments on the stress and it really makes your body look good. I paired it With gold jewelry. I'll rent this again for work. Or maybe even buy it

So tight in the arms

I love this dress it was made well and comfortable aside from the arm fit. I ordered a size up from normal and it still barely fit. If you have fit issues in the arms normally I would go two sizes up from normal.

So beautiful, I wanted to keep it.

The fit was a bit tight at the midsection but it helped keep it all in. The fabric is a bit heavy but not hot. The bottom part flares out very nicely. Dress is conservative and work/church appropriate. I paired it with a white blazer and silver peep toe heels.

Work presentation

I rented this for a work presentation and it worked really well. Size up if you have larger chest/arms. I did and it fit like my normal size so worked really well. Not as much stretch as I was expecting or as much as many ponte knit dresses so keep that in mind! Very thick and lined so kind of sucked you all in and it photographs beautifully! Very professional looking in photos-a winner for work!

Lovely dress, but very tight in sleeve

A beautiful dress with thick, but breathable material. There was a hint of stretch in the fabric but those with broader shoulders and biceps might want to consider sizing up. It fit perfectly had it been sleeveless, but it isn't and the sleeves while not overwhelming we're still super tight and limited my upper body mobility.

Beautiful dress but size up!

Loved the color, shape and thick high quality material, but it was tight on me and the sleeves were small like other reviewers have noted. Wanted to exchange for a size 6 but it wasn't available. Returned and sad I couldn't wear it.

I wasn't able to wear this gem because it ran small in the bust. But it's very well made - the color and material is beautiful. Very classy & demur but still fun.

Lovely dress

I got lots of compliments on this dress. I wore it twice, both to work. I normally am a 2, but got a 4 and it fit great. Like other reviews mention, it is tight in the shoulders, but that didn't stop me from wearing it!

Weird arms

The way the Arms are designed you can't lift or move them much. I rented a size up so it fit well and the color was pretty. Just poor design in the arms but just hope you don't need to reach for something off the top shelf at the office

The dress is really well made, but it doesn't work well for a petite woman. The length was longer than I expected and it made me look shorter - which is something I never want! The shoulder width was also wider than I am, so the fabric was a little bunched up there.

Too large, awkward proportions, and teal (not blue)

I really wanted to like this dress! Unfortunately, it swallowed me up. Every measurable area was large and fell at awkward places on my body. The asymmetrical hem was the most awkward for me. There is a lot of fabric hidden on that side of the dress, and the bottom of the ruffle hit below mid-calf. I also think the color of the dress is much more teal (read - more green) in person than in the images. Not necessarily a bad color, but not what I was expecting.

I love the swish swish of the hem. The cut is lovely and fun and the color makes you stand out.

Pros: very flattering Cons: I have strong arms and it was a little tight. It also shows everything so bring out your shapewear.

Shoulders and Bust Tight

I didn't end up wearing this because the shoulders and the bust were too small on me. I have broad shoulders and am busty. I would size up if I rent this again - also I would not wear it in the summer. The fabric is too heavy to wear on a hot day.

Nice and appropriate. Snug. Smelled of dry clean chemicals (Perc).

I wore this at a mid-week evening awards ceremony for my work. I'm usually size 4-6 and the 6 was a snug fit, but there's a little stretch in the fabric so it fit nicely. It's a beautiful dress and was appropriate for the occasion. I loved the teal color and the asymmetrical hem/seams make this dress stand out. It would have received 5 stars, but the dress smelled heavily of dry cleaning chemicals (presumably from repeated cleanings) and over time the smell made me a little dizzy. The dress also irritated my skin, also, presumably from the chemicals (because the fabric was nice and smooth against my skin). RTR needs to transition to green cleaning. It's better for the environment AND their customers.

Rented this for work.

The dress is a brighter turquoise as compared to the model photo. It is very restrictive in the arms and chest area. The cap sleeves are sewn awkwardly so that it is very difficult to raise and move your arms above waist level.

Tight on shoulder/chest.

I'm usually a 6-8 so I ordered the 8. I couldn't wear it because the sleeves wouldn't fit my upper body. The sleeves seemed to run small.

Loved it — very flattering!

Great fit — definitely size up though. I’m usually a 10 or 12 and I ordered a 14. Could’ve gotten away with a 12 except for the arms. Definitely needed the 14. But the cut is very flattering for a curvy body type. Would rent this again!

Beautiful but very snug

The high-low hemline is really nice and the color is beautiful. I found the sleeves of the dress to be super small and thats why I couldnt zip up the dress at the top. (fit elsewhere very nicely).

Definitely runs small

I used to wear a 14, now have lost 20 pounds and am closer to a 12. I tried a 14 and it was hard to zip up. The bust is really small, and because of that it limits arm movement. Don't rent this wanting to do the YMCA. Go 1-2 sizes up depending on your curviness. Otherwise, it actually is a really beautiful dress. I wore it to work with multiple compliments. The color is gorgeous.
