Keeping this for a while

Beautiful a-line dress WITH POCKETS. Fit is perfect if not a bit small in the arm/shoulders. Fits a little but tight there, issues with lifting my arms over my head, but at work that's not remotely necessary for me. 100% keeping this for a while

N/A

There was an issue with having to fight with the zipper, which kept getting stuck. Once I was able to zip it up, it bunches up on the right side, which made it look awkward. The fact that this dress has pockets is amazing. Too bad I didn't get to wear it.

Pretty good

I mostly really liked this dress. I don't love the way most things fit my postpartum body, but this dress was definitely more flattering than others through the bodice and skirt. My only complaint was that I didn't like the shoulders/sleeves. I felt like they emphasized my larger arms. Overall though, I felt good and received compliments each time I wore the dress.

Pattern was beautiful.

Sent back because it was too small to wear at all comfortably. One size bigger would have been perfect!

Gorgeous print, conservative silhouette

Really lovely dress. Great lines and pockets to boot. A bit longer than usual but made for some drama.

Gorgeous Dress - Nice Change from LBD

Loved this dress! Very flattering and fun to wear a print without wearing a large print! A bit tight in my chest but ran TTS other than that. Would rent again.

Flattering but size up

Cute LBD with florals. I sized up from a 4 to a 6, and it fit perfectly. The 4 would have been too tight in the chest and shoulders. It was really comfortable to wear and flattered my figure.

Dress is cute but wouldn't recommend for tall women with bust. It would look cute on a petite figure

Love this dress!

This was the perfect dress for a daytime spring wedding! So comfortable and I got so many compliments. Runs large so get a smaller backup size. I didn't want to send it back but did reluctantly.

Finally, a black halo dress that fits me!

Dream dress. Classic A line, tailored to a tee, with pockets and a gorgeous floral design. I'm so sad to return this one. Hits at just the right place on the hips, length was perfect on my 5'6" frame. Highly recommend this one!

Odd

The fit of this was a bit odd - it was right in the arms and somewhat stiff. I don't think I even wore it....

Nice but hard to zip

Dress is cute but hard to zip when the zipper meets the waist area. It's also very tight in that one spot. But the dress is really cute and great for transitioning weather. It also has pockets

Comfy with Pockets!

Easy to wear, steamed once delivered. Material is slightly thick, so think Spring or Fall or transitional weather. Pockets were fun and convenient!

Lovely dress

I liked this dress but didn't love it. The cut doesn't really do much for an hourglass figure. It runs small in the chest and arms. Nice alternative to a black dress and great material.

Small dress

I ended up not wearing this dress. It was too snug for me, and I had issues with my zipper. I think a 6 or 8 would have been perfect. It was very small in the chest and stomach.

Polished and sophisticated

I'm falling out of love with this type of fit-and-flare style, but made an exception for the lovely print of this dress and had a great time in it. Great dress if you want to flash some old-school polish. Didn't need many accessories. Simple and elegant.

Order one size up

I ordered a small rather than an XS, which is my usual size, based on the reviews. It fit perfect, looking forward to wearing to work. I was concerned that maybe upper arms would be small based on reviews since I have wide shoulder and athletic arms, but it fit perfect. Good length for work, 35" shoulder to hem in small.

Beautiful dress!

I liked this dress a lot. I received a lot of compliments. I loved how the dress hid my belly. It was a perfect dress to wear to a summer wedding. I did have to wear the size 10 so I was glad that I ordered the second size. The zipper in the back was hard to zip up by myself, so I did need help with that.

Awesome dress but too small to wear!

From what I now understand, after reading lots if reviews, Black Halo runs small. I should have ordered a size up in this dress but I did not. I'm going to reorder in the correct size.

this was a semi formal wedding in a barn/venue. not terribly formal, but not casual either.

This felt snug in the ribs and shoulders. but it has the tiniest bit of stretch, so it was manageable. I thought it hung beautifully in all the right places. I'm typically not one to get clothes that I haven't tried on, but really didn't want to acquire a dress for one time use.

Perfect for the cherry blossom festival!

Good quality heavy material. Love the pockets. I wore this a couple of times and dressed it down with black knee high boots for a work event, then with killer heels and long earrings for a gala. I took the advice of previous reviewers and ordered up a size to compensate for the very tight fit on the arms and back. Overall the dress looked good despite the larger size.

Classy and conservative

The dress was definitely a little tight in the shoulders. If it wasn't for the shoulders, I would have done a 2. It had a nice shape that was very forgiving in the tummy and butt area. High quality, thick material. Perfect dress for a dressed up event that you still want to be a little conservative for!

Super cute, BUT SIZE UP!!!

I rented this to wear to my mom's "Celebration of Life". I usually wear a size 2 or 4, but read the reviews stating that it runs small, so I rented a 4 with a backup size 6. I was able to get both sizes on, but even the 6 was really tight in the shoulders. I knew I would be hugging people all day long and would need to be able to lift my arms, so I contacted RTR. A size 8 wasn't available so I had to go with a different dress. Overall, this dress was super adorable and I would have loved to have worn it to the celebration. The material is nice, **it has pockets!!** and the length was perfect. I highly recommend this dress, but be sure to go up at least one size if not 2.

This dress was perfect for a welcome party/rehearsal dinner, got lots of compliments!

This dress was a little tight on top, but once it was on it was very flattering. If you are busty, you will need someone to help you zip it up. Usually I like a dress with a little cleavage but due to the fit, it wasn't needed. I would rent again.

I wanted to like it

This dress made me feel old instead of beautiful...it didn't fit well on my body. I have wide shoulders and back so the top portion didn't fit well in those area. Dress kept bunching up because it was too small on top for me. I wanted to like it because it has an amazing flower pattern so pretty in person. It has pockets and who doesn't love pockets? However the material is heavy for the summer more like a spring or fall dress. It has stretch except in the waist so I suggest you size up.

Such a great dress

Like all Black Halo - gorgeous but runs a bit small in the chest/rib cage. I am a 0/2 and rectangular but have a wide rib cage. The 2 wasn't available so I thought I'd give the 0 a shot - but it was just too tight to comfortably wear. Print, style, pockets, everything about this dress is great. Just need to catch it in the right size.
