Nice for work but definitely runs large

This is a great dress but wish I'd read the reviews and got a smaller size! Lovely color and fabric. If I had got the right size then I think this would have got the extra star.

Extremely large. European sizing, but RTR converts based on your size US 12 = EUR 44, US 10 = EUR 42, etc. The dress is meant to fit loose but still size down... Runs large! I had to belt it to make it work...I hope this helps!

Beautiful and versatile but runs large

I rented a size 6 (European 38), my normal size, but it was huge and I had to send it back. I now have a size 4 and it fits perfectly. The dropped waist doesn't really do me any favours so I added a belt. This dress is super versatile and I plan to rent again later and use it with a blazer, black tights and boots. Note that it is silk - not polyester.

80s vibe with modern fit

Loved this dress! Great print and interesting design. Good length for work. Loose and could have sized down but i liked the bagginess

I know I'm short, but this was long! Cute pattern and colors though.

The fit was really long--below the knee. It was also bigger all over than this same size in other dresses and designers. That said, it was comfortable and looked good paired with a bright red chunky necklace and heels.

Looked like a bag

I am usually a 4 unless something has no stretch then a 6. I ordered this in a 6 because it had no reviews. It's big and shapeless. I'll still wear it to work because I don't care about looking grumpy there. I don't know if sizing down would help because it was huge everywhere but the hips and I'm not sure the 4 would make a difference. Fabric is good though. Probably best for a less curvy body type and sized down.

Bump friendly, runs a bit large

The color and pattern is great! Easy fit and quite loose. I picked this dress since I'm pregnant and wanted to be comfortable, but I could have easily gone down a size. My current weight is 176lbs at 35 weeks pregnant. So if you're between sizes pick the smaller size. Loved the color though! I'll probably rent again after the baby when I'm transitioning back to my pre pregnancy body.

Very fancy but wouldn't ever buy or rent again

Went with reviews and ordered size smaller due to swimming aspect but could barely get the bottom over my hips. Better fit straight and narrow bodies.

Great color and comfortable around stomach area

I kinda agree with the other reviews that it is larger than expected. I usually wear a 4 but went down a size. I'm glad I did or else it'd look like a bag on me. I have wide hips so like another reviewer I need to twist a little to get it over my hips. Once all in place looked cute- not adjustable around the waist so a belt would be good to give me more shape. Appropriate length and coverage on top for work.

Cute on the hanger, weird fit overall

The dress is oddly shaped, I had a ton of room on the top to where the neck line kind of sagged, but then the bottom half was tight and restricting around the legs. It came to a bit below my knees so I had a hard time taking big steps or getting out of my car...the fabric was cute though

Easy to wear

Rented for work. Fit was nice and it looked good with a blazer for a business professional look. The dress wasn't anything special.

Pretty but a bit shapeless

I ordered this as part of unlimited and decided to just wear it one time. It was a nice conservative classy dress, but nothing particularly special. For reference I am 5'9" 160 pounds and currently a 36H bra (post baby). Luckily everything fit inside the dress nicely :-) but it wasn't the most flattering on me.

Large on top. Tight on bottom.

The back doesn't have shape so if you have a larger butt/hips the bottom will be tight and the top will be large. More for apple or maybe hourglass.

I should have listened to the other reviewers who said this fit. Too big on top and too tight on the bottom. Not a favorite. Returned without wearing

Fits like a paper bag

Very boxy fit. Tighter on thighs and huuuge on top. Not flattering at all. I tried to remedy with a belt but still looked too big.

Dress is very comfortable and I really liked it. It was a little large for the size so could have gone a size smaller and been better.

Interesting dress for work

Fit okay, kind of weird shape, the fabric is not what I expected. Thought about wearing a belt but didn't. It's defined in the front but not on the side so if you do not have a butt I recommend against it- Good for pear or hourglass shape. Appropriate dress for work :)

Compliments all day! Third trimester work perfection

The fit was perfect for my third trimester. It was comfortable and long enough for work. I work it will a long black cardigan, black tights, and flats. Many people asked where I shop for maternity clothes and were surprised to hear it wasn't actually a maternity piece

Wore it twice!

Beautiful dress! Definitely large in the shoulder and neckline, I have narrower shoulders so it felt big, but with a jacket worked great. Definitely no stretch in the material, but other than that is was very comfortable and flattering.

kind of strange fit

This dress is kind of odd, it's very blousy and billows in the back. There was a lot of extra material in the stomach area and no defined waistline, so hard to figure out where the waist should hit. The inner sheath of the skirt was a little snug on my legs but the skirt did not look tight. Overall the fit was awkward and I didn't wear it- maybe just not the right style for my body type.

Runs large, felt shapeless

Color and print was nice. Light fabric, prone to wrinkles. I think if youre curvier, this cut could really work, but I'm pretty straight and narrow, so, as you can see, this did nothing for me. It def runs large! I tried with a wide belt, but the ruching on the side made it look weird. Recommend sizing down and better fit for curves.

Fun print and dress style

Great dress, got tons of compliments on both the print and the flattering cut. Worn it both to work and a concert afterwards. Only con is that it was slightly big on me and could kind of look like a bag if not pulled up, if youre between two sizes go smaller

Very pretty pattern and great quality. Was a little tight on my 5 month bump so not a true maternity dress but very doable for 2nd trimester. Professional yet cute for work.

Sizes large and not the most flattering

Unfortunately I had to send this one back immediately because it was at least two sizes too big and, even if it had fit, would have looked a bit shapeless. I still gave it a few stars though since the quality was fine and it was a nice breathable material. I think this piece is much better suited for taller and leaner figures.

Better with a Belt

This dress was really comfortable and versatile. I wore it to the opera and to work. With a blazer and without. However, I wore a belt with it every time. Skinny belt with a blazer and a thick fashion belt without

Weird fit! V fashion! Good for slimmer ladies?

This was a VERY fashion-forward-feeling dress. I didn't love the fit--as you can see from the MODEL photo, it is supposed to fit tightly around the hips and then be blousy up top, but that would never have worked on my hourglass body :) the fit around the hips was good for me (I'm between a 12 and 14, and usually need more give in skirts), but there's not a lot of give to the fabric. I tried it with a belt and without--I guess the pics look better without, but I felt more comfortable in person with it. The fabric is very silky and lovely.

Can make it work

Dress runs very large. It is awkward fitting in the back but I put a black blazer over it and made it work. You definitely need something to bring it together like a belt, blazer, or cardigan. Great length for work and nice thin material for warm weather.
