Very on point with that 90s throwback trend

Fits well very traditional style floral midi dress popular in the 90s. Fabric is nice and flows. Has a good cut to snug in at the waist then flares out. I liked it would rent again.

Didn't need to size up

I'm between an 8 or 10 and I rented the 10 because the fabric has no stretch. I probably should have ordered an 8 for a more fitted look but wonder if the bust would have been too tight. It looked fine in the 10 just more flowy in the mid section.

Too long, too "old"

Way longer on me than in the models picture, and very blousy around the middle (which is elastic. Did not wear.

This ran surprisingly large for a DVF. I looked downright dowdy!

Sweet dress but too tight in the arms

This dress flows nicely and is perfect for work or every day - I would've loved to wear it, but unfortunately the elastic section was too tight in the arms on me, while the dress was loose everywhere else. The latter part could've been fixed with a waist cinching belt, but I knew I would be uncomfortable with the sleeves all day. Bigger armed ladies be warned!

Comfort and quality

Nice flowy fabric. I'm a true size 4 and the size 4 was a little loose in the body. The arms have a band around the bottom that was tight but not uncomfortable. The cut was just right for work.

Nice print and style of dress but odd fit

This dress ran large. I am normally between an 8 and 10 depending on the cut. I rented the 10R and it was huge. The sleeves have elastic that was super tight on my arms too and by the end of the work day had left marks. The fabric was so light that a slight breeze blew it up and around and it didn't hang well without a slip. I wouldn't rent this again.

Amazing cut and feel! Buttons pop open like whoa

I'm pretty sure a dude at work saw my entire belly button. The buttons on this popped open quite a bit, and I really should have worn a slip. That being said, this dress is AMAZING. Probably not everyone's style, but it flows great, flatters the tummy tire, light enough for hot summer days, and looks good with or without belt. I loved the blousing effect in the back you get even without a belt. The sleeves are tight, but it didn't bother me too much and I have pretty big (but entirely gooey) guns.

Elegant, breezy, and surprisingly versatile

This dress was such a delightful surprise! I ordered 2 sizes up as I usually do with DVF, but this one was actually true to size... and was rather large on me... however, with a small belt cinched at the waist, the silhouette was absolutely dreamy! I wore this everywhere for a few weeks, from berry picking on a farm in 90+ degree heat, to work, to running errands around town. Everywhere I went I felt comfortable (breathable, lightweight silk FTW) and #vintagefancy. Can't wait to rent again. P.S. I can't emphasize enough how much a slim belt will do for this dress, esp if you have an hourglass figure.

Flowy and comfortable

Cute dress, would rent again. Def need a belt and some cute shoes to dress it up. Fit was true to size. I wore a slip from another dress underneath which def helped with it being a button down dress.

This dress fits one size large and was not at all flattering on my straight frame. The 0 might have worked better.

Perfect for Seinfeld theme party where you're Elaine

This is truly a tragically 90s dress. Every part of it was deeply unflattering. But it's perfect if you're looking fir a costume to play Elaine from Seinfeld.

A bazillion compliments!

The dress was a hit! So many compliments at work and happy hour. Comfy in ac and in the hot weather outside. Only needed 1 safety pin to secure between the top two buttons. Would rent again and buy (if the price went down lol).

Very comfortable for summertime.

I'm usually between a size 2 and 4 and this size 2 fit perfectly in the arms and was loose elsewhere but that is the style of the dress. It is not form fitting. It's a casual, conservative dress. It's a beautiful fabric and I really enjoyed wearing it. But don't expect any compliments - it's not that flattering and the print is nothing special.

Beautiful silk but ran very large.

I try to wear natural fibers which is why I chose this dress to wear to work. I rented this in my normal size and it was huge. There is no way a size smaller would even come close to fitting. I loved the soft silk and coverage this dress could have provided for a conservative office setting, but it looked like a paper bag on me.

Way too big! I'm normally a size 2 but I was swimming in the dress. It dipped too low and was huge around the waist. Too bad since I would have love to have worn it.

The 90s are Back and I'm late to the party

Super cute dress that has a flowy and relaxed look. The mid-section is somewhat like a babydoll dress with a slight form, and the sleeves are gently puffed like a 1940's style dress. This is great for a day trip where you want to be comfortable. The sleeves do run a bit snug, so even though an RtR customer could size down for a fitted look, the sleeves may be too tight.

I wore another dress.

I really like the look of this dress on the model and I have no problem with the quality. However, on me the dress just didn't fit well. The sleeves have elastic in them, which makes them fit tight. The dress just hung straight on me and looked frumpy. I'm 5'6", but I think it might look better on someone taller.

Pretty print

Wanted to love this as the print is really pretty. I rented a 2 and it was large on the waist but was still going to wear it to work. After 15 minutes I could no longer stand this dress as the sleeves were way TOO tight and cutting off my blood supply. Rent at your own risk.

Just ok.

The sizing on this one is weird. It was big in the back and small in the front. I also the buttons pop open very easily there were a few times my bra was showing at the office. Wouldn't recommend this item. Designer has better more comfortable options.

Overall AWESOME work dress!

Not sure why people are saying to size down - there is no way your arms would fit in the elastics (no offense to myself I do not have big guns or anything for arms) The waist is looser when you size up but like others have done - you can belt it - or just not worry about the extra 1/2 inch of gaping in the back because its really not a big deal. Rent this dress for work - especially if you are enduring the lovely heatwave.

100% silk and flowy dress

Being cooler weather I dressed this down with sneakers and a jacket. Super beautiful fabric and flowy. I would wear this more in the summer. Being 5'2-5'3, it's more of a maxi dress, but I thought it worked well

Great dress

Wore this to my business casual office and made it a little more professional (and defined) with a black belt. LOVED it - although my mom told me it looked like it was from the 70s and my boss told me it was from the 40s. I think they were both compliments. ;) One word of warning - it isn't lined, and I dealt with crazy static cling all day because of the weight of the silk.

Cute but dowdy.

I wanted to love this dress but the puffy sleeves were too much, combined with the cut and color of the dress I felt like I could step in to an episode of little house on the prairie. The fabric is beautifully lightweight and has wonderful movement but it just made my shoulders look even broader, making me look a bit like a linebacker. Just not for me, however, if you have the right body type I could see it being flattering on someone else.

Nothing extra ordinary

Nice print. Very thin. Probably best for summer I rented in spring. Also not bump friendly even though it came up as such. I wore to work while 24 weeks pregnant and front bottoms kept bulging.

Feel like Amish Belle

Cute basic dress. I am 5'5 and the dress reaches mid calf. The waist is not defined so I needed a belt.
