Team RTR Review

Absolutely obsessed with this menswear-inspired top. It was perfect for work and still looked amazing for my dinner plans afterwards. I styled with dark high-waisted jeans and block heels. I got SO many compliments. The only drawback is it was a bit snug in the chest area. Luckily, it's poplin material, so it stretched a tiny bit throughout the day. If you have a bigger bust, size up!

Crisp and unique

This is a very well-made cotton blouse with crisp white French cuffs. The asymmetrical peplum is a nice touch. I accidentally rented the European size 40 (being a bit unknowledgeable on the conversion to American sizes) which in the end was a bit too big for me, nonetheless I wore the blouse anyway. I think this would have been even more flattering had I rented the correct size, which would have been likely more nipped in at the waist. I wore this with narrow, cropped navy blue pants and it looked great.

Love the dress shirt stripes

While the stripe in here is navy, I was traveling and in a pinch so inspired it with black pants and sneakers. Perfect for traveling and feeling put together.

Too short

The asymmetrical look is cute but too short on the one end for me. Made it not as work appropriate which was my goal.

Tall women beware!

I rented this to wear to work, but it looked too much like a crop top to wear as is. I have a long torso, so I ended up layering a black tank underneath with black jeans and it looked work appropriate.

Loved classic look with twist

Unfortunately I couldn't wear because it was too tight on my chest. Not great for longer torso

Classic tailoring with some quirky details

Substantial fabric, very nicely tailored, holds its shape well - I wore it three times. I would say it runs true to size, its fitted but not tight. The fabric is non-stretch and the closure is the buttons most of the way (but not all of the way) down the front, so it is a bit tight slipping on and off - if you have wider shoulders or a larger bust you may want to size up.

Love the assymetrical hem

Love this top. Its very stiff so not the easiest to get one once your hair and makeup is done but so cute. Short so you need some higher waisted pants. Would definitely rent again.

Cute but very short on left side...

This is a very cute and unique blouse but be aware that the left side is much shorter than pictured if you are on the tall side. I wore it casually with jeans and Van sneakers.

Sharp, crisp top!

I love this top for the spring or summer! I wore it to work with jeans and booties. The asymmetrical hem makes this top unique, but the shorter side was quite cropped, so I wore it with a tank top underneath. I got many compliments on this top! Would look cute with white jeans as well.

Tight on bust and too short

The cut of the shirt is cool and might look better on someone taller but it was too tight on the bust, too short on one side and made me look pregnant.

One and done.

This can be a nice piece for the work day. I wore it to a casual Saturday event and revived compliments. It felt a little poofy for me, so I only wore it once.

Cute top

This is a cute top, I rented for work but needed to size up.... tight in the bust and shoulders. I'll probably order the 40 and try again.

Super cute and modern girly!

Loved everything about this top! Received tons of compliments. The only issue was it is a little snug across the chest so ensure that you size up !

Not for tall gals

If you have a long torso like I do (I'm 5'8") this isn't for you! It's more of a crop top. Also I have small boobs and my girls were squeezed in here.

Flattering.

It's a flattering top. If you have a small chest this is perfect. However, if you get your exact size I could see it being a problem if you have a B-C cup. Size up in that case.

Fun piece

Fits well, except I wish it was just one inch longer. Worn with a tank top underneath and thankfully didn't feel that made the outfit too tight or less fun. Quality material meant the structure of the shirt held up all day.

Super cute but short for gals with longo torsos

Is more like a crop for tall girls. I wore a white tank underneath and unbuttoned the top to be able to wear to work.

Felt that I was joining the circus...

I rented as part of unlimited to wear for work - put it on and really hated it... looked like I was either joining the circus or hiding a baby bump. Ran narrow in the shoulders, it was shorter than expected. Will not be renting this one again...

Disappointing Fit

I was so excited about this shirt, but the fit didn't work really well on me. This ended up looking much more cropped than I was expecting. I think the fit would be better on someone more flat chested. Aside from the fit issues, this shirt was a fun play on a classic button down.

Taylored and put together

This is a great shirt. It is made of a thick material that doesn't wrinkle badly. I wore the sleeves I cuffed because I am tall. Also, if you are busty at all this won't button. I had to put a tank under it to wear it. Overall, I loved the look and would rent again.

Runs small

Fabric is very stiff and shirt runs small. The waist hit higher than appears in the photo with the model -- I am 5'3" and the shirt was very short on me. Ended up not wearing it and just returning.

Comfortable.

It's very nipped in right under the girls and I'm only a B cup size and that one button hole gaped enough where I thought about pinning it but since it was a good cotton material it stayed decent. If you're anything bigger, you won't be able to button it. By the waist area, it flares out and I can see if I was thinner, it could be flattering but it made me look larger than I was. It's well made with good quality fabric.

Much shorter than expected.

As others have noted, this was too short for my frame. The yoke hit just under the bust, not at the high waist as appears in the photo. Tried it with a few pieces and couldn't make it work.
