Too nice for work!

This dress is really fab! I got tons of compliments. It was a little big but the 6 likely would have been too small in the chest. And it needs a slip even with nude undies. Extremely well made!

Flower Power!

Love love love love love this dress!!! Flower power! It is super comfy on & true to size! I loved the embroidered flowErs. I received so many compliments & it was perfect to wear on a gorgeous spring day! I would rent again in 2 months & wear fun bright red open toe heels to give it a pop of color in summer & bring out red in embroidered flowers. I would totally purchase this dress if it was $1400 .... I would never spend that kind of money on dress- that's just crazy! def not worth that much, - I will stick to RTR Unlimited subscription and rent out 12-15 work dresses a month for $139

Trendy and stylish!

Very stylish! Great dress for date night or dinner with friends. The only downside is the fabric wrinkles a bit with wear.

Flirty and classy with spunk

A new fav. The pictures don't do it justice. Classy cut, super light weight and perfect for hot weather. Amazing detail, including the tailoring which almost gives the back a Donald Duck - like tail feather that is subtle and rockstar.

Perfectly cut dress

I loved wearing this dress. The cut on it is perfect. It made me feel great the whole time I was wearing it. It even caught the attention of a VP at work and our conversation ended in me being invited to an important meeting. Totally worth it.

Very mod

This dress is great for a 60's mod look. The fabric is nice and the embroidered details are lovely. I wore this to a dinner party and got many compliments. Excellent quality. I was scared it would be sheer and show my undergarments but it did not. I did wear nude though. Great dress.

Thinner than it looks

You could see right through this shirt dress. I'll be pairing it with leggings and a tank underneath instead of wearing as a dress.

Runs small in the chest, as seen in the photo. I'm a 34/36C. Could not wear.

Great dress for work

Nice for work. Very simple dress, but not basic at all! More fitted at chest, but A-line from waist down gave nice look.

Loved this dress!

Wore it to work and out that night! Recommend a slip underneath as it's a bit sheer.

So many compliments on how chic I looked!

This dress is very comfortable and versatile. I wore this for work with booties. You will need to wear a slip under it because it is see through. You will also need to iron it because it does wrinkle. Overall fit is true to size. I'm a 32 dd busy and I felt very comfortable.

Very pretty but wrinkles fast

The dress was really pretty but it's somewhat of a sheet or parachute type fabric. The back bunches up when you sit and stand due to the pleat.

Super chic and comfortable!

I was a little worried about the dress being slightly see through but it ended up being totally fine. I wore black tights and a black cami underneath with no issue.

Fun Mod Dress

Love this funky dress! It wrinkles easily and is a bit short for a tall girl, but it's definitely a dress that was made for RTR!! It's never something I'd ever buy for myself but absolutely love wearing it! Just like other reviewers have mentioned - if you've got a bust, size up. It runs a bit small in the chest.

Mixed reviews....

Love this dress, fit amazing and super cute. One problem, while washing my hands I got the sleeve a little wet. The red flower in the cuff bled onto the white fabric around it. Super disappointing.

Unique dress; easy to wrinkle

It's definitely a different dress and stands out as unique. It runs large and is very wise from waist down. It's extremely easy to wrinkle so hard to keep looking nice and clean.

It is snug at the bust.

Perfect!

Fit perfect up top and plenty of forgiving and flattering room at the bottom. You will need a nude slip with this dress. It also wrinkles very easily, but the wrinkles work well with the clean, crisp look.

Cool dress. Lots of compliments

This is a cool dress. Only problem is that when you walk it rides up in from so you need a slip to prevent that from happening. I got a lot of compliments. Although unstructured, the upper bodice is somewhat fitted. It's a good length if you are tall -- it's not too short.

So cool!

Loved the crisp fabric. It gives the pleat in the back substance enough to give almost a bustle shape, which played well against the shirt-straight front.

Too tight in bust but loved the style! Reordered a size up-just put aside 1hr to press out his baby

This dress is a 100% cotton and very time consuming to press all the fine-line wrinkles out and gave up after an hour of messing with it between an iron and steam press since it it fit but was felt tight in the bust area for me (32DD) and the button detail, though trendy, is non functional to offer any leeway. I have since re-ordered it a size up and look forward to wearing it to a work meeting next week.

Great for work!

I was nervous to wear this shirt dress to work... wasn't sure how the fabric would hold up with me getting up and down all day. I thought for sure that I'd be a wrinkled mess by the time I got home. The pics here are after work! No real problem with wrinkles. The dress is totally appropriate for work and I felt like I just came off the runway wearing it. LOVE!

RTR Team Review

The cutest dress!!! Loved the flowers -- they were the perfect detail! This dress runs true to size. I am usually a size 4 and wore a size 6. It felt slightly big so I would recommend wearing your size and then sizing up for backup as the 6 was do-able as well. It’s loose and has comfortable room but would say that it works best for A to C cups. The dress has some stretch and is very comfortable. It hits you at the mid thigh. Overall, the perfect summer/spring outfit!

Wore to Work - So Retro and Fun!

I loved this dress and felt so luxe wearing it. It kind of reminded me of something out of the late '60s with the big primary color buttons, so I paired it with platform penny loafers and I felt fabulous. The back of the dress is flouncy and fun, but be careful when you're standing up or walking outside so that the wind doesn't give you a Marilyn moment. The dress does arrive in a wrinkled state, but I was able to steam that out. Loved this and would definitely rent again!

It was okay, I wore it for work it kind of has a strange fit that reminds me of a lab coat.

The style is different I thought it had kind of a strange cut overall but was okay for work.

I received so many compliments on this dress. I wore to a family reunion and KILT it!

The dress is fitted in the bust area, I recommend getting a bigger size if you need room. The dress flows and giving room in the hip area. I would wear this dress to multiple events.

Received tons of compliments. Easy to wear, comfortable, but white white so maybe post season.

Easy flowing dress. Mid century mod. Received tons of compliments across the board. Very comfortable, very easy to wear, and fit true to size. Love it and would rent it again, but probably wait to do so until Spring as it's VERY white and, although long-sleeve, feels quite summery. Sheer/lightweight cotton material.

Comfy and retro

Such a cute look. I can't usually wear retro shift dresses but this one has a nice pleat in the back so although I have a round butt, it still fit and fell nicely. Wrinkles easily.

I didn't wear it to an event.

The dress is great for a hot weather event. It wrinkles. So it's better for a more casual event. I liked it a lot!
