Very full skirt

It's beautifully made and gorgeous colors, but was a little too fancy for me to wear to work. The skirt is also much fuller than I originally thought.

Great dress and very flattering cut.

Great dress, it was little large so I did not end up keeping it, but it is a very flattering cut.

Beautiful Dress

I thought this dress was well constructed and the material was great quality. It is form fitting and was a little tight in the underarm and bust area. I received lots of compliments and I will definitely order again in the future.

Work meeting

It ran big but the colors and texture were gorgeous and high quality. I️ needed to belt it so it didn't look to baggy on me.

Nice work dress

I wore to work and got compliments galore. It was brand new with the tags in. It fit like a glove. It was a little long for my taste and I couldn't figure out a jacket or sweater to wear with it, so I think it's better to just keep it short sleeved. It was modest enough for work even sleeveless. Would recommend for a conservative work function. Very figure flattering! Lovely material and great color!

A bit big -- but still worked great!!

Size down if you're debating. I usually wear an 8, but the 8 was large on me throughout the bust, waist and hips. The skirt was also longer than I was expecting. I ended up using a safety pin in the back to fix the fit and it worked great! Skirt shape is was a welcome change from the usual business dress style, and I loved the colors and pattern.

Navy and red scalloped dress

This dress is fabulous Very flattering - it created curves which I liked at the hips and may even hide problem areas for girls with larger hips I think it'll flatter most shapes I'd say it runs true to size maybe even a tadddd big but it was fine Very comfort not too heavy of a material Love the scalloped design of the dress Overall love will rent again

Kicking off RTR Unlimited with a Bang

This was the first piece I selected for RTR Unlimited, and when I saw it on the site it's pretty much why I decided to join! It didn't disappoint, a bit fancy for work but might as well bring the A game like a boss. Would be perfect for a work reception/fancy dinner all the way to a ball or black tie. Lots of compliments. Love it!

I wore this dress for work. This could have easily been worn for a party with some jewelry and heels. I dressed it down for work and it worked just fine.

Stylish, fun, and spunky

Wore this for my anniversary date night. Absolutely loved this dress and wished I could wear it more frequently. The dress seems well made and high quality, and the red really pops against the navy. The fabric has no stretch and was very form-fitted against my chest and ribs. The dress flares out at the bottom in a way that makes it very comfortable around the hips (especially after eating a big meal) and is easy to move in. I got tons of compliments in this dress and would love to rent it again.

Too dressy for work, odd structure

It looked too dressy for work and the skirt had a weird hoop skirt quality that wasn't attractive

Work party winner!

Rented this for one of a slew of work and social parties for rhe month of December. It worked beautifully for a holiday work event i attended. I wore witha navy cardigan. I am a swimmer so it was a bit tight around the arm holes which is nothing new for me. This dress offers no give(although i didnt suspect it would) it was a bit longer than i usually like buf perfectly appropriate for the occassion. The textile is interesting w/o being flashy. Very classic and many compliments were received.

Favorite dress EVER.

This is my favorite dress - not just from RTR - but ever. It's gorgeous, and I think the fit is very flattering. If you're short, it definitely needs some heels. If it weren't so expensive (even with RTR discount), I would buy this. I really don't want to return it.

Can't figure out how to send it back; figure perfect for a larger waistline with impecable tailoring

Impeccable tailoring - not enough room to put it in the Sum It Up description. I don't know how to send this one back - it is so beautiful and fits so well for a designer dress on a non-perfect body. Kudos to those who work to make a plus size look great in a designer dress.

Gorgeous and just like the model photo

Really loving this dress. The game-of-thrones-dragon-egg pattern is super fun, and even prettier in person than in the photos. The structure of the dress is PERFECT. It's like, seriously the exact shape of my body. The skirt is big and keeps its shape so nicely. All around a very cute dress. Looks exactly how you'd expect, if not better.

Fabulous dress that is perfect for a professional

When I rented this dress, I was a little nervous about the length (I'm petite). When I initally tried it on, I actually didn't love it; it came down just below my knees, which isn't always the most flattering for short legs. But I wore it to work and felt amazing in it. I had no less than ten people (many of whom I'd never spoken to before) compliment me onthe dress. The fabric is gorgeous, and the drop waist was actually perfect. I might have been able to go down a size but the chest would have been extremely tight. I actually ended up keeping the dress so I could wear it a second time. I am also seriously considering buying it.

Endless compliments!

This dress fit like a glove. There is no stretch in the waist and chest. I am very small and this fit perfectly. I could see for most it would be to tight to zip. I received endless compliments from co-workers, clients, and random people throughout the day. The dress could be dressed up for a more formal event because of the bigger skirt, but I wore it to the office, a training session and even a marketing event at a golf place. It was perfect. I will rent again!

Loved it paired with the denim jacket with red fur! So fun. I work at a church so dress was a conser

Fits close to rib cage. I can wear a 4 in sizes, but I chose 6 which was a perfect match.

Beautiful details, comfortable and flattering. WIN

The delicate scalloped pattern of the fabric is really subtle and beautiful. Perfect for a Valentine's wine tasting/dinner but I would rent this for a variety of occasions. I am self-conscious about my mid section, and I felt this dress smoothed me out and flattered my figure.
