Definitely a Statement dress
This dress is very trendy! I wore it out to dinner for my birthday and had to style it so it didn't wear me :) it is very bold! On the fit - I found that the material is thick and heavy but doesn't have much stretch. I am 32B and had gapping around the top, but it was still wearable. Would recommend for someone with a bigger bust. The dress would be cute for a formal daytime event. I would not recommend for an evening affair. There are pockets tho which make the dress more fun.

Runs huge on top
The dress is cute but the top is so big, I couldn't wear it. And I'm blessed with a big chest and there was no way I could fill this out. It feels like something is off with this dress. It perhaps would have worked if the straps were adjustable. But they are not. Hugely disappointing.

Awesome dress for any occasion
This was my favorite RTR dress to date. It was easy to wear and very comfortable for dancing all night. I wore a strapless bra under this dress. I'm 5'1", 145 lbs, 34F chest. I normally wear a size 10. Rent this dress. It will not disappoint!

Gorgeous but ill fitting
Loved everything about this. But unfortunately I couldn't wear this because the neckline was too loose and gapped to the extreme. I think that it would be amazing on someone taller and more statuesque than myself.

Favorite RTR so far! Sharp, high end.
My husband loved this dress maybe more than I did! The black and white contrast gives a clean/sharp look. The banded waist is flattering and even more so complimented by the double layer skirt. I. Love. This. Dress. It screams quality, don't hesitate to rent it!

Unique dress, lots of compliments!
I wore this around town on a Saturday and to a party in the evening. It was super comfortable and I got compliments all day, especially on the unique front buckle detail. I'm normally a 2 and the 34 fit very well. The neckline and waistline were super flattering. Fabric was slightly heavy for a hot NYC day but worth it!

Very Unique
I am glad I sized up one size. It fit comfortably. I love the flattering shape and would have kept it longer, but I don't have any nice nights out anytime soon. I will rent this dress again. Nice, heavy material. Very pretty.

Flattering but strange
This dress was definitely unique! I can't decide whether I liked it or not... It was flattering but did not fit quite right. It was a little big around the neck, which made it hang funny. I think if my shoulder were a little broader it would have felt better. Or if my chest was smaller, a smaller size might've worked? I did love the pattern and silhouette of the skirt. Overall, it was fun to wear, but I don't think I'd rent it again.

Lovely color - not a fan of the length
On me I thought it was a little too long - and could look better on someone taller - but the dress fit and it was extremely comfortable - it was heavy and great for 76 degree weather - it is different but a lovey casual dress!

Adorable style, snug around the waist, not for short torsos
I love this style. I originally tried to order a size smaller but could not breath once zipped up. Months later I tried it in a size up. It zipped up nicely and looked cute. Except the straps were too long and it kept sliding down to show my bra and a bit of upper side boob. I would say this is not a great style if you have a short torso. Maybe then it would have flappy straps and the sliding down issues. I love how unique it was, but I wouldn't rent again for my body type.

This dress was SO much better than expected!
The details made this dress. I wore it for a work presentation and felt great. I am a size 0 and wore the 34, for reference. I didn't expect this dress to look as cute as it did and it was a pleasant surprise!

Weird style and cut
I didn't end up wearing this, although it fit, the dress was just cut strange and didn't flatter. The skirt kept folding in and made it look like shorts. Cute print and style though. I wish it had worked for me.

Stylist Review
Fun black & white cocktail dress that can be worn for different events! This dress definitely runs small so I would recommend sizing up for your backup size. It is great for any cup size as there is comfortable room in the bust. It is fitted at the natural waist but there is a decent amount of room in the hips. I wore the FR size 34 which equals a US size 2. A strapless bra should be worn with this dress due to the unique neckline. This dress would work for most body types including hourglass, athletic, pear, petite, straight & narrow and full bust.

Lovely dress. Fun shape and buckle.
I ended up not wearing this one. It was a tiny bit too big in the upper body since I'm a petite. If my toys that was a little taller it would've been great. Beautiful dress though fabric way it was wonderful. Expensive looking.

love the pattern!
this would've been 5 stars if i didn't have a fit issue because the dress is amazing otherwise! the found the straps to be too long. the belt strap on the shoulder bunched up when i tried to tighten it so the dress never sat right on my shoulder, but otherwise this dress is so awesome!! the pattern is fantastic, the cut is very flattering and fitted at the waist. i have a rather large waist and the size 4, my usual size, fit me just fine, so if you're btwn sizes w a small waist, size down. fit my chest fine, didn't bother w bra. hit a bit above the knee. overall really great dress, just wish the straps fit better!

I love the material. The dress had a nice weight to it.
I thought it ran a little big on the top. It did not stop me from wearing it but if you are smaller on top you may want to think about a size down.

Tons of Compliments!!!
This dress is great - the fit, the colors, the style - I felt like I was wearing something very unique (but not outrageous). The fit was comfortable and true to size.

Loved the neckline!
I rented this for a luau, but decided to wear the other dress. This would be a great day dress to wear. The fit was perfect and the skirt has some neat detail. I also loved the fit of the neckline.

Odd style and pattern BUT so flattering and cute!
This is going to be an odd review but I really like this dress. The pattern is super odd and the placement of the bottoms frills are odd and the buckle is kind of odd. BUT it is SO flattering! The dress is really cute on and I do not know how to explain it. If you have a day time event, possibly a luncheon, bridal shower or nice BBQ this is perfect! The top is a bit roomy but it fit really well otherwise. True to size.
