Too cutesy for me

The overall fit was true to size, however the front is closed by snaps. I have an average size chest, but every time I moved the snaps came undone.. Surprise. I could not wear this out. There was a bit too much flare in the skirt for my liking, and I found the attached slip difficult to untangle making it a process to put the dress on.

Better suited for a taller individual: larger chested individuals beware

I gave this 3 stars mostly because of the way it fit me. That being said I'm only 5'2 and while the dress looked okay it was definitely not my favorite. I do think this dress would look very beautiful on a taller individual cause the waist is a drop waist so it hit me at my widest part. The material is a silk and is very comfortable but there is little stretch in the arms. I wore a size 40 and the waist was slightly big however the chest was a little tight and in certain position the buttons gapped (larger chest ladies know what I'm talking about), which is why I would not recommend this to someone larger then a C cup. Overall, high quality fabric, cute print, just not great for my body type.

A little large for a petite frame

Don't love it. The top snap kept popping open during the day. Also the midsection is a little "blah" and unflattering. Length was unflattering for a short girl (longer than knees). Not my favorite

Great shape to dress!

This dress is great. Nice fit and stylish. I pinned the middle and didn't tie up top which worked well

Quality details

This dress was perfect to wear to a children's piano recital. The top snaps pop open if you put your arms behind you to put on a coat, so be ready with tape or a small safety pin! Wardrobe malfunction cost this dress a star, otherwise beautiful silk and excellent quality dress.

Adorable print dress with fun details! Will definitely rent again!

Loved this dress!! Easy fabric, flirty silhouette, and fun details (keyhole neckline, tassels, cap sleeve, crochet seams, and mandarin collar). Given the dress's construction, I recommend putting on overhead (not stepping into), because the waist opening is narrow. I wore to dinner and drinks with girlfriends and received many compliments! The keyhole neckline opening goes pretty low (the underwire of my bra was showing), so I used fashion tape to close it up a bit. I will definitely rent again. It was comfortable and easy but still chic and sophisticated.

Beautiful and Flowy

The fabric is light and amazing, and it looks great with a pointy pair of stilettos or with a cute pair of sandals. It does seem to run a little large, with the exception of the chest area. I am certainly not a blessed lady (34-36B) but the buttons on the front would not stop popping open every 10 seconds. I ended up having to carefully pin the front closed. If you're large chested this isn't the dress for you.

Lots of compliments

I am usually a 2, sometimes a 0... should have ordered down a size but this still fit and I received a lot of compliments. Wore to work, although it is a bit on the casual side for office wear. Wore a cute black leather jacket on top and it looked great. Has a nude liner which hides any cleavage that might otherwise be a problem. Very comfortable. Would absolutely rent this again, but one size down. Loved the tassels in particular!

I wanted something conservative, but stylish

I was drawn to the tassel detail on this dress. I'm petite so it ran a little bit long for me. (For the model in the picture this dress ends above the knee.)

I really liked this dress! Unfortunately there was a defect.

This might have been one of my favorite dresses to date. Unfortunately, the tassel was defective. After about 3 hrs of wear, it began to unravel and the material fell out of the loop. I notified RTR and of course they were very helpful in replacing the item and apologizing! I gave it 3 stars just for the inconvenience of having an item that caused me stress over picking up all the materials, but customer service and this dress in its complete form should get 5 stars.

It feels amazingly against the skin!

I have been wanted to rent this dress for MONTHS - finally was able to rent on my unlimited and I couldn't wear it. It runs small in the arms (not for wrestler's arms) and the snaps on the bust (I'm size 34b), even thought the dress was loose everywhere but my arms, they kept coming undone and showing my bra/the slip, so sad I couldn't wear it.

Didn't wear

This is a beautiful dress if it works for you. I felt the arms were too tight and the bottom snap was very close to popping open. I liked that it included a nude slip as there were little details that showed bare skin.

Great dress, the tassels really add to it.

Loved the nude lining and tie neck. Length was a bit long and fit a bit large. I'm usually a size 2.

I loved this dress!! I wore it three times the week I had it: to work, to two dinner parties.

The fit was perfect and I was glad a little safety pin appeared to act as a top button and make it a bit more modest. I wasn't into the tying at the neck, so I just left the tassels loose and paired it with a denim jacket.

Lots of compliments. So comfortable to wear.

This was the most luxurious fabric. The dress looks fairly simple on line but on the body it shouts elegance. It also hid any soft spots around the waist area.

Cute, you can tell its good quality. Some sizing issues.

This dress was cute. Wore it on a friday at work. The quality of it is real nice, nice material with a nude slip (separate) underneath. My issue was the 44 (I'm usually a 6/8) was tight on my chest and then sort of bigger on my stomach and hips. It's a flowy design on the bottom I realize but I don't think it did much for my figure. But still, for one day, it was a cute wardrobe add!

Adorable dress for work

I got so many compliments on this dress! The built in slip made such a difference, as it is a bit sheer. The tassel detail is so much fun

Simple, casual and elegant

Overall I appreciated the dress because it was forgiving in all the right areas, was very comfortable and looked polish. A couple nuisances I had included the buttons continuing to pop out and expose the slip under the dress. I wear a C cup and that could be the reason why. Also, I had to tape down the straps on the slip because it kept falling over my shoulder and made it quite annoying.

Very Cute dress!

Loved this dress, very soft material, and the print is super cute. Unfortunately mine was missing the slip but I was able to use one of my own. Would rent again!

Never received it! :-(

Unfortunately, I never received this dress. Got a massage from RTR " the dress was returned either late or damaged by the previous renter and won’t be available in time to fulfill your Unlimited Order"

snaps on bust made it so frustrating after wearing the whole day

I have been waiting to rent this dress for MONTHS - finally was able to rent on my unlimited and ended up disappointed... there are snaps on the bust and I got this dress big for me, it was loose everywhere but the ENTIRE day the snaps kept coming undone and showing my bra/the slip, just annoying. I even safty pinned it. I did get compliments but if I have to worry the entire time I am wearing it that I am going flash someone, not worth it.

Flattering Summer Dress

I received a number of compliments on this dress despite it not entirely living up to my expectations. The one I received did not have tassels at the end of the ties; I suspect they fell off long ago and RTR just repaired it. It was also difficult for me to adjust the top so that I didn't inadvertently flash people. There are several snaps that keep the top closed and they're spaced pretty far apart and only go to mid-chest. I had to make sure it was tied closed otherwise the top would gape open. I have a smaller chest and imagine it would be a bigger problem for someone with a larger bust. In retrospect I should have used some invisible tape to secure it. My only other gripe was that I'm 5'4" and it hit me right at the knee which isn't the most flattering length but I should have assumed that based on the pictures. The material is nice and the print is fantastic. Great for summer!

Classic Chanel Day Look when paired with the Moschino Lilith Jacket!

I rented the dress for a corporate event. I tried ordering it 3 times before calling RTR and was informed that the 1 remaining size 36 in the warehouse was returned without the slip by the previous renter. I asked to have the dress sent since I have slips that would work. When the dress arrived, it was missing 1 black tassel. When I tried on the dress, the slip attached to the dress courtesy of RTR hung lower than the hem of the dress on the right side only. My husband saved the day by ingeniously devising a solution of wrapping the strap of the right side of the slip with a safety pin to eliminate the slip dragging on the right side. He did not even attach the safety pin to the dress so we did NOT leave a hole in the fabric for the next renter. It was so complicated to adjust all the moving parts that I sent it back after one wearing when I would have loved to keep it for another event. Finally, I paired the dress with the Moschino Lilith jacket for a classic Chanel day look.
