Beautiful floral detailing, plus pockets

Originally ordered the same style in teal for a fall wedding, but they misdelivered so I ended up choosing this in magenta instead. Color worked out beautifully as it was a deep magenta, close to plum purple, and the floral detailing was very three-dimensional. Such a texturally interesting dress, yet still subtle. The boxy sleeves and pleating in the front added amazing structure, and the pockets hidden in the pleats meant I didn't have to carry around a clutch the whole time. Since they only had a 0 left, I wore that and it fit, but a 2, my usual size, would definitely have been more comfortable. Arm movement was limited with the cap sleeves, and thigh area gets tighter when sitting, but still doable. Chest area is not forgiving -- not great for busty gals. Paired with nude heels and gold bangle, but because the stitching in the details is darker, could also be paired with black shoes and accessories. Overall, it was just my style, just what I was looking for, and a very classy dress.

Stylish and fun with conservative class

Perfect dress for my fundraising event. Fit was great and did not need the extra size. Tulip skirt is perfect if you need a break from spanx or are self conscious about your mid section. The jewel tone is a nice contrast from the typical LBD and I got nothing but compliments all evening. I did have a little trouble getting in/out of the car and sitting. Definitely a standing dress.

What a Great Dress!

The dress is so classic and was perfect for Thanksgiving dinner. The pockets are always a plus and the fabric feels very nice when wearing it. It was a little uncomfortable to wear the dress while driving (the neck was a little tight and the sleeves dug in to my arms when I was holding the steering wheel) but I was able to adjust it a bit to handle that. The color is perfect for fall/winter!

It's so easy! So many compliments!

I was worried that there wouldn't be any stretch in the fabric and it would run small. I ended up wearing the 8 and it was a little larger that I was imagining. The dress is true to a retail store size. Even though the dress was a tad big in some areas everyone loved it at the wedding I attended. It's a simply beautiful dress. Not to loud not too much. Just wonderful.

Many compliments on the beautiful color

No stretch or give in the dress at all but if you find the correct size it complements your curves as if made custom.

Perfect color for winter party.

I wore this dress to my company's holiday party. I loved it! This dress fit true to size. I have a broad back so it was slightly hard to lift my arms but not uncomfortable. The next size up was unavailable so I can't compare how the bigger size would have been. The pockets were lovely and I got lots of compliments.

Stunning dress

I would rent this dress again. It was stunning and I received lots of compliments. The fabric is thick and great quality. The dress fits true to size, but was snug across the chest. I decided to wear the 4 even though it was snug because the 6 was too loose and appeared baggy and ill fitting. The darting and structure if this dress is great. I was concerned about the length hitting below my knee and making me appear even shorter as I am only 5'2 but with a pair of heels it worked fine.

Lovely, but bad fit for me

I am a short waisted hourglass. The seam that should hit at the natural waist was too low on me. The waist was also loose, but the arms were very restricting. I always welcome pockets, but if you fill out the hips it would look awkward to have anything (even a hand) in the pockets. This dress feels and looks very expensive but not for my body type.

I loved the color, fit and look of this dress!

The dress fit perfectly and made me feel great! The only issues I had were that it was too tight in the arms when lifting over my head, which was only an issue while dancing. It also was restricting when walking up stairs, but I didn't have to do that much. Overall, it fit and looked great so those two minor issues did not affect my overall love of the dress.

This dress was perfect! I would have kept it if I could!

I normally wear a 0, but it was tight in the shoulders and neckline felt too tight. I wore the 2 and it was much better!

This was darker than the fushia color I was expecting but it was a beautifully cut and flattering dress. It was forgiving in the skirt and was very comfortable. I received lots of complements.

For my flabby arms it was tight so I have to go a size up. Then it fit like a glove

Great dress for work and I love unlimited!

This dress was great for work in a professional office setting. The color is lovely and the shape is very forgiving because of the waist line which is pinched in but gives room in the hips. I received many compliments on this dress. The downsizes are that the dress is tight at the bottom and in the shoulders for me so for that reason you may want to size up. The tightness is only noticeable when you are sitting or bending like most people do! I am usually a size 4 on top and 6 in bottom. Next time I will try a size 6 for other dresses by this designer.

Beautiful but not the most flattering on me

As others mentioned, this runs very small and has no give. The fabric is gorgeous - thick and very expensive-looking and stands out in a sea of LBDs without being too showy. I didn't think this dress was particularly flattering on me, though., and if I'd had time, probably would have tried to get something else. The structured pleats in the front seemed to emphasize my post-baby pooch rather than hide it, and the structure and place that the sleeves hit made my arms look bigger than they are. Plus, the crew neckline with the place the waist hit made my boobs look...a little sad. That being said, I got tons of compliments, so I guess we are our own worst critics.

Wore this to a public event where I work. It was simply gorgeous. High quality fabric and lovely color palette that complimented my dark hair. Felt very confident when I had to speak in part because I knew I looked put together.

It was perfect for our end of year work party. Very professional looking.

I am. 5'3 and 209 lbs with a 40f chest and the size 20 fit. The shoulders are a little puffy but it was a good fit for length as well. The color was beautiful and I received a ton of compliments

Absolutely beautiful dress. I am very petite and was concerned that it wouldn't fit (especially in the waist), but it was perfect. I wore this for my rehearsal dinner but it would be perfect for any formal affair.

Unbelievably comfortable, and the POCKETS!

I rented this dress for what turned out to be my surprise bridal shower. The color is GORGEOUS and so rich. The dress fits a larger chest wonderfully, so no worries about it being too tight in the bust. I usually wear a 4, but the 4 I ordered was a bit too wide in the waist. Not a big deal, you couldn't tell. The hidden gem here are the awesome pockets! Perfectly fits your lipstick, cell phone, and keys. Overall awesome rental.

Got the most compliments ever for a dress ! I felt mike a million bucks

The color and silhouette theses creates was magnificent ! My trouble area is my midsection and it disguised it and created a small waist illusion. The dress has pockets for my lipstick and cell phone. Love pockets. Everyone stopped to remark how gorgeous my dress was and how amazing I looked. Will rent again ! I normally wear a 14 but only the 12 was available and I took the chance and it fit and worked out perfectly !

Super easy process, couldn't have been happier!

I wore this for a military awards banquet (semi-formal event) and felt like a million bucks. I had a baby 2 months ago, and this dress was wonderfully forgiving, fit true to size and was unique! I loved that I was covered up and felt appropriate, but still gorgeous and fun!

Beautiful color - classic and comfortable

Rented this for Easter Sunday church and celebration. It was a perfect dress - great pop of color and conservative enough for church setting. It was a very flattering fit for my pear shape, and I loved the pockets! The only call out would be that as I sat down, the neckline would choke me a bit so I had to hike up the bottom a bit more in order to sit comfortably - not a huge deal, just noticeable. Would definitely rent again!

Classy style, festive color.

I'm a true 6, and despite ordering up for my back-up size per other reviews, the 6 fit like a glove. Loved the color, sleeves. and pockets! Paired with the Ella Carter Rainbow Burst earrings, which were a perfect compliment.

Loved the dress! There was a pretty big discrepancy between the 18 and the 20, but it was a great dress and I got a lot of compliments on it. Very happy with my first RTR experience!

I wore this dress for my baby girl's baptism. The color is much more vibrant & beautiful in person.

It fits true to size. I'm clearly a size 4 and that's what I wore. Although I was able to get into the 2, it was tight when I bent forward or bent my arms.

Beautiful, classy dress

Wore this for my best friend's rehearsal/rehearsal dinner. The dress fit perfectly. Very structured so it is very flattering and the color is gorgeous. Dress is very true to size but if you're in between you should probably go down. I'm usually a 0 or 2 and the 0 fit like a glove. I didn't wear a bra though and I found there was just enough room in the chest. If I wore a bra it would have felt a little tight.

This dress was a standout at a wedding where all the friends of the bride were asked to wear purple. Fit true to size, a little tighter around the knees but able to walk and sit comfortably. Loved the rose pattern, very unique!

So glad RTR offers a free 2nd size!

This dress was perfect for Easter brunch...the darker colors were perfect as it was snowy. You could make this dress more formal or wear for brunch/lunch. The arms run small so keep that in mind when ordering. Dress creates pretty curves by nipping in at the waist. Lovely!!

GREAT color. Good for all kinds of occasions

Liked this dress more the longer I had it on. I ordered the 10 thinking it would be tight around my hips (I'm curvy) but to my surprise I probably could have ordered the 8. It was a little big in the bust, but still looked great!
