Cute weekend dress: top fit is a little large, bottom fits a little tight

Pros: - fit: The skirt/bottom fit just right - it skimmed my hips/waist (if I had been a little wider it wouldn't have fit). - fit: no button gaping (I'm 34E). Casual loose fit under the bust (not a fitted hourglass silhouette). With the belt, I thought it flattering on my shape, short torso and midsection - casual but nice quality fabric with lined skirt Cons - I had a hard time making the tassels look good For reference I am between 8 and 12 in dresses. I think pear shaped / wide hips could consider sizing up. Straight and narrow consider sizing down.

Cute spring summer dress! Conservative for work or easy to wear out.

Easy to wear to work then out for a casual night. This type of shirt dress style tends to run large so I prudently chose a Small which was perfect. I would say you can size down one size and it should be great- has some room in the waist with the drawcord. Good for bigger D busts like me. Cute and not too hot as it's linen/cotton. (PSA: please include your measurements on your profile! Others can't make use of your review if we don't know your sizes/weight etc!)

Eh

Dress was okay but it does have a large overall fit and the bottom flares out oddly because of the light fabric

Cute summer dress.

Doesn't look like much on the hanger, but with the drawstring waist, the fit is much cuter than expected.

Cute but nothing special

I loved the pictures of this dress online but was not wow-ed by it. It was cute to wear on a day in NYC, or could probably be worn to work but I didn't love it. The waist string tie is so long so the tassels hang at an awkward length. Easy dress to wear, runs a bit large.

The longer I wore this dress, the more I disliked it

Overall feelings: I heard a lot of cowboy jokes while wearing this dress. The fabric is lightweight but scratchy. I didn't love that the lining underneath the very sheer skirt didn't extend to the hem. The lining was also very wrinkly (maybe intended to help the full-skirt look?) and had a habit of bunching up underneath the sheer skirt layer and nearly exposing my undies. Also, beware the wind! Fit: Shoulders and arms fit very well. Waist was very large - there was a drawstring with red tassels to cinch (not shown in RTR images) that I hid inside of the dress because there was already too much going on with the dress. The skirt was short with a lot of fabric.

Will not rent again

This runs really big- I felt like I was swimming in the XS. You can't see from the picture, but this dress has a drawstring at the waist- and even with that, it was still too large. The drawstrings have bright orange or red tassles on the end, and that detail, combined with the large ruffles on the skirt, made me feel too childish so I returned without wearing.

Never wore it

Material is very light not structured as pictured in the photo. Not suitable for work, maybe for weekend. Overall does not seem as expensive as it looks.

Just meh

I wasn't blown away with the quality of the fabric based on how it looks in the pictures. It was also a bit short on me even though it was baggy everywhere else. The photo doesn't show the huge red tassels that hang from the drawstring waist. The ruffle hit me at the wrong place on the skirt (I have a long torso) and it wasn't the most flattering cut. The embroidery is very nice and I did get a lot of compliments.

Cute Daytime Dress

This dress is super cute! I received tons of compliments. Because there are buttons and I have a bigger chest, I went with the medium -- I think the small would have had button gap.

RTR Stylist Review

This dress is very comfortable. It's perfect for warmer weather. It can be fitted at the waist with an adjustable belt.

petites only

I am 5'10" this was way to short for me and skirt is flouncy at the bottom which looked odd. The embroidery was very pretty

This dress was surprisingly comfortable and flattering!

I got a surprising amount of compliments when wearing this dress and the embroidery is very vibrant and cute. I really enjoyed wearing this dress and would probably rent it again! The waist ties are a bit long, but not really a big deal. The flare in the back did make me check a few times throughout the day that I wasn't flashing anyone, but it was always down, thank goodness!

N/A

Is not pictured with a red tassel tie/belt but the dress does come with one. I would have preferred it without, it took away from the look in my opinion.

Cute and costumey

I thought that this dress was very cute. I wore it for work, to dinner and to a party. It is a little like costume-Western wear, but I thought it was charming. There is a tassel drawstring that's not pictured on the model.

Loved the detailed stitching and colors!

Only reason it's getting 4 stars instead of 5 is b/c of some slight frays in the colorful stitching in the back part of the dress. Otherwise, would absolutely rent again/consider buying. Great fit around the bust, comfortable for work or fall weekend fun.

Cute

It's a pretty nice dress but the material is really thin. The skirt part sticks out a lot at the bottom so it has a slightly weird shape- at least on my body. I didn't end up wearing it because the two people who saw me try it on thought it looked like I had a waitressing apron on. Overall the dress is pretty cute, the details are nice and the fit was good! Just not my style
