Comfortable and effortless

Definitely would have sized down to a 2. A mid-shin on a shorty like me, but still a comfortable and snug enough fit to feel great wearing it at the office for a polish look and at dinner that night. Love the draped top, hugs in all the right places, thick fabric so you won't have to worry about VPL, and I love the higher-than-you'd-expect neckline. Really classy. I felt like a boss walking around in this with wedge booties and a cream and tan duster coat. Would totally consider buying and keeping!

Comfy and sleek

This dress was so comfortable I could have slept in it. I find I need to upsize in DVF dresses, and with that in mind I got the 6 and it fit me perfectly. The fabric is on the thicker side and the mock neck make this dress more of a fall style, but it also worked well without a jacket for an early spring transition.

Great for a work speaking gig

Not my typical style - I'm usually too curvy to feel comfortable hiding my waist with this type of top, but I went for it and really liked it. You can definitely dress it up or down. Fabric was thick and slimming. I'm 5'6 and it was on the longer side - would not have rented if I were shorter. I wore it at a conference I was speaking at.

Chic black work dress

Fitted on me because I have some rear, but very flattering because of that too. Was perfect for a business casual meeting. Nothing negative to say.

Great dress for work

Great work dress. Conservative but stylish. Perhaps better in the fall but good on a warm spring day too. Fits kind of like a pencil skirt (so my post-baby tummy could be seen)) but I still felt good in it.

Didn't wear due to damage

Nice dress, good material. Fit true to size but was a little hard to get on. The fabric was thick and stretchy. I couldn't wear it because the whole bottom seam was coming undone. Will send back and try again

True to size, comfortable. A bit tight on top of you have a bigger chest. Flattering dress that's perfect for work.

Comfortable LBD

So comfortable!! The material is slightly thicker so may be too warm for a summer outdoor event.

Great summer office dress!

Beautiful dress- great knee length (5'7") and mock neck dress with beautiful detailing to create the look of a crop top with a skirt vice a full dress 2 separate zippers makes it easier to get into a d cinch in the right places. Will rent again!

Basic but comfortable.

This fits true to size, even if you have curves around the hips. It was a little boring but the good fit and how comfortable it was made up for it.

Beautiful and comfortable

One of my favorite rented dress to date. Is incredibly flattering, great for all day wear, and stretchy enough to where it'll hug curves. Good if you're Hour glass shaped.

Perfect work dress with a edge

This was a great switch up from the usual DVF wrap dresses. The fabric is stretchy so it gives a little edge to the workplace but the high neck makes it appropriate. This is a perfect go to dress from work to dinner. I would buy it!

Beautiful!

Dress is super flattering especially for a large bust. but the skirt is not forgiving with undergarments, recommend spanx because panty lines could be intense with this.

Love this dress!

I love this dress. It's a great spin on the LBD with a cute overlay and the slightly high collar. The fit is snug but fabric is thick and has stretch to it. I'd say it runs more snug than other DVF dresses that I've rented but overall pretty true to size. This is one that I wish I could keep!

Confident and comfortable

This was a dream dress for me. The skirt has enough give to not need a slit. The fabric is substantial but not bulky. The body line was perfect. I dressed it down with quirky nerd-chic oxfords. Why oh why did i return it?

Great classic black dress

Very cute fit, it's stretchy but not too tight where it's inappropriate for work. I love the high neck. Only complaint was trying to get the dress on - there are two zippers but it's a little challenging to put on. I managed to get my deodorant all over the dress. Something to keep in mind!

Great dress. Almost too dressy for work- I'd only recommend if you have a rather formal office. Lots of compliments throughout the day, very comfortable to wear.

Chic

This dress runs a little small, not VERY small like other DVF dresses I've gotten from RTR (her wrap dresses won't close around me!). Very chic. The top overlay is flattering to the waist. The back zipper is too short, making getting into the dress more of a wrestling match than it should be, but once it's on you're fine. Great, very heavyweight ponte.

Classic LBD that runs small

This is a beautiful, classic black dress that can easily be dressed up or down to cover the business formal or business casual continuum. Unfortunately, the dress appears to run quite small. I'm a typical 12 in Trina Turk, J Crew, etc. but this dress would need to be a 14, perhaps 16. There are two zippers, one for the top part of the dress and one on the side for the bottom, making a larger fit very necessary to get into and out of the dress. I'm sad it didn't work out but would love to try again in a 14 or 16.

I used this dress for a photoshoot, and I loved it so much that I bought it!

It runs big. I am usually a size 4/6, and I wore a size 2. Warning: it looks boxy and kind of blah on the hanger, but it is gorgeous once you put it on!
