Stylist Notes

This adorable dress from Catherine Malandrino takes the stress out of evening dressed sing. Flattering ruching ensures your waist looks teeny-tiny and your curves super-sexy. The knit fabric allows stretch and ease of movement. Pair with heels and a strong statement piece like the Tuleste Market's Layered Ball and Chain Necklace.

Oh my God!! This dress is so super sexy!! It fit like a dream and hugs your curves in all the right places. Soooo many compliments...as soon as you put it on, you instantly feel sexy. I think I'll have to rent this one again :)

I loved this dress. Very sexy, yet super comfortable. It fit perfectly from top to bottom (which is rare when you have a slightly bigger top and bottom), including a perfectly snug waist.

This dress is really sexy, at least it makes you feel that way. If you are not comfortable with your body, and with both men and women checking you out, do noy wear this dress. On the other hand, if you love your figure, curves or no curves, and you want to dress up, look sexy and classy, this dress is the one. I wore it to an evening wedding with a silver cuff and simple silver earrings with strappy black kitten heels. I am a pear shape with a small chest, but my bottom half is very firm thanks to a regular work out routine that includes tons of lunges and squats. My tummy is flat, so while I am bigger on the bottom, it's all tight. I loved this dress on me, and I think it would look great on most any shape. It is stretchy so it is super comfy too.

So flattering. This is one that I did NOT want to send back. It definitely hugs your...everything, but the ruching hides the problem areas. I felt incredible in it. And the fabric is stretchy so it's easy to move in.

I feel like I was mislead by the other reviews. I wore this dress to a worky cocktail party, but did not enjoy it. The rouching was good on your top and on your bottom, but the rouching did bad things to me in the middle. I felt like the dress was a little streched out and kept riding up to create extra fabric around the midsection. I could also see the dress was a few rents away from starting to pill. It was a disappointing rent.

Sexy, yet classy. This dress fits really well, without sacrificing comfort. I had to use the "tape" to secure the areas under my underarms so that my bra wouldn't show, but that happens to me with just about all tops and dresses, and once I "taped" it, it stayed put the whole time. I'm usually a size 4 or 6 and the small fit wonderfully. Loved this dress, and made me a fan of Catherine Malandrino.

Great style, but the Medium I received was stretched out in the hips and rear and scrunched up around the middle (as Kim noted). . Also, the fabric was pilled and somewhat matted. Disappointing.

This dress runs pretty true to size, maybe a tiny bit small. I usually wear a 2 or 4 dress and the small was a tad tight, so I went with the medium (which was a little big). It is an absolutely gorgeous dress, very classic and fun at the same time. I rented it with the necklace it is shown with and they look fantastic together. My complaint, however, is that this dress (both sizes!) arrived at my house the day before my event looking VERY worn out and old - they were almost completely unwearable. I didn't have any other options, or I might have chosen not to wear this at all. RTR should absolutely retire old inventory on a more regular basis, as people are not going to be happy to receive beautiful designer dresses that are in poor condition.

The picture on the internet and the dress in person are totally different. The dress was very pilled and thrift store looking. Not at all what I usually receieve from RTR. Brand new I'm sure it was gorgeous.
