Great off the shoulder dress!

I wore this dress to a baby shower and it was perfect. It's pretty forgiving so no need to size up. The small fit me just fine. Length was a just a touch short for my taste for the small, probably a few inches above my knee. The length was perfect on the medium but the overall fit was a little baggy so I opted to size down. The elastic on the shoulders fit quite comfortably and didn't shift up or down too much. Altogether it was a well made off the shoulder dress. Material is cotton and on the thinner side so unless it's sunny out, you will be chilly.

A very eye-catching style, perfect for summer! (Or when you wish it were summer)

Very forgiving and flattering fit. I think I was the first person to wear it and it still had the retail tag on. A little disappointed that RTR is billing this as a dress when the tag says it's a beach coverup. Oh, well it worked out!

Pretty spring dress!

I rented this for a baby shower. I was so excited to find Draper and James on RTR! The dress is light and airy and just kind of floats on you, which is nice for my figure because I need shape without cling. The off-shoulder was slightly flirty but did not feel inappropriate. Hemline hit at a comfortable spot above my knees. Color and design are beautiful. I did not want to give this dress back.

RTR STYLIST REVIEW

This dress is flowy, girly and very airy! You can barely feel this dress on. Its a great cotton dress to wear for any fun daytime activity, like a a day at the park, a picnic date or a day full of shopping. the shoulders feel great, I didn't have to budge for them to stay on. I would definitely size down for this dress. I'm a 38D and I still had plenty of room in the bust.

The floral equivalent of a paper bag

I was SO excited to get this dress to wear to dinner on the Bay when a friend was in town. Based on other reviews, I ordered a XL (I'm normally a 12), which was HUGE! It also had no shape to it, whatsoever, so even trying to tie the ribbon belt was of no help. If you are interested in something that is really flowy, maybe it will work for you, but I like to have a little structure to my outfits so this was a total miss. I would also definitely order at least one size down, I think I could have worn a medium in this.

Girly springtime dress

Loved feeling like Reese Witherspoon wearing this dress from her line. The length was surprisingly flirty and fell just ever-so-slightly above my knee. I could have worn the medium or the small but I chose the small as it was a little more figure flattering and a tad shorter in length. I'm a true pear shape: Size S on top, small(ish) waist, and M-L on bottom (my hips are 39.5 in) but there was plenty of room in the hips on this style, and I liked how ribbon sash at the waist emphasized my curvy bottom half. FYI the sash is not attached so you can choose to wear it with or without! I wore this to a concert in the park on my birthday, and received many compliments. I did have to tug down the sleeves every once in a while to keep them off my shoulders, but overall the dress was pretty comfortable. If in doubt... just rent this! It's flattering, versatile and sweet!!! Day or night, dress it up or down... I saw Reese wear it on Instagram as a bathing suit cover up without the sash. I'll probably rent it again, as it is super lightweight (cotton and linen, I think, and lined) and it will work well in the summer months.

Too baggy

This dress just does not have enough shape to it. It was like a nice large airy pillow case. The belt that came with it was no match to try to cinch a waist out of it.

Fun, cute dress!

Love Draper James!! I wore this for Easter Sunday, then again on a casual date. It's a great, very light weight, comfortable, adorable dress. This is perfect for a brunch or outdoor party. The arm sleeves have ties that make it looser or tighter. I was actually surprised that this style was flattering on my short and curvy body type but The belt hits at a nice place so it can give you a shape. The Pom Pom detail at the hem is the best part.

Great summer dress

I was initially surprised by the fabric, but I liked the dress it self. I wore the XL to get a little more length on the dress and more width at the shoulders.

Rented this dress for the Kentucky Derby and received SOOO many compliments!

This dress can be dressed up or worn casually with sandals. I was so impressed with the fit (can we worn belted or for a looser look, unbelted). Definitely order TTS or maybe even a size smaller, definitely no reason to size up. I am 5'9 and the dress hit mid-thigh. Loved it so much that I am thinking about purchasing the dress!

Pretty colors! Good fabric

Runs a little big (square shaped). Great off the shoulder, never fussed with it. Stays in place. Good length. If you're between sizes, sizes down. I'm curvy and this was not snug anywhere! This dress was delivered to me WITHOUT the belt which was kind of annoying but RTR took care of the issue and sent me a backup dress which I appreciated. I wore the dress without the belt in Napa while wine tasting. It did wrinkle a little when you sat down.

Very cute Spring dress

This dress looks even cuter in person. The colors are very bright. It was brand new when I wore it. I loved the fit, the off-the-shoulder detail, adorable sleeves, the belt... Everything about this dress was just super cute. I would say this dress is perfect to wear in warm weather. The fabric is breathable and super light. It was a bit shorter than I thought (at mid-thigh.) It has a slit, so no see-through, but I still recommend light-colored underwear. Overall, this dress is perfect for a daytime event or an informal-casual evening with high heels and a nice necklace or bracelet.

Great casual dress

I rented this for my cousins baby shower and it was a hit! So comfortable and super cute. It's a great summery dress as it's very light cotton. My only complaint was the sash it comes with gets rolled up and moves. It would have been nice if the dress had loops to hold it in place better or if the sash was a little thicker. Overall it's a very cute dress and I got many compliments.

Cute & Summery

I rented this for my daughter's dance recital this weekend. Unfortunately, the weather dropped from 80+ to the 60's the night before the recital, and this dress was just too summery and bare to wear. That said, it's cute! Bright colors, the off the shoulder is pretty. It's SHORT. I'm only 5'3 and it hit about mid-thigh on me, with the little belt. It would be a great dress for a warm night out at the beach, the fabric is very light and airy. Also, I follow Draper James on instagram, and don't have a store locally, so this was a nice way to try out a piece from that line.

I wore this for my graduation ceremony, I loved the light weight of the fabric!

I felt that the medium was a little too short in length but wore it over the large because the large was too big in the bust area and wouldn't stay off the shoulder as intended. Definitely the perfect dress for an outdoor event/party.

Cute and Comfy

This is another unlimited dress that has grown on me over the day. I did not like it with the belt so I wore it without it. The material is thin but it is lined with cotton so it is light and airy, perfect for warm weather. I would say because this is a thin, almost gauze like fabric, it is more appropriate fore a casual event like brunch or vacation. I am very large chested and there was room to spare with the large. I probably could have worn the medium. I usually wear a 12. Size down especially if you are not large chested.

Very pretty, comfortable everyday dress

Really cute, casual dress. It was a little short (I was nervous in the wind) and it was tough to keep the off shoulder sleeves in place (kept riding up my arms). Overall, recommended for every day wear. Material is plain cotton. My sister loved it on me and wanted me to buy it!

Beautiful dress for a baptism.

Based on the reviews I ordered the S and M. The S fit perfect, was flattering in the stomach area too! Had to pull it down back in place after sitting down, but looked great all day!

I wore this dress for a communion party.

It's a very cute dress and I received a lot of compliments. I wore a size small when I normally would wear a medium so I would say it runs slightly large. Based on the other reviews saying the same thing, I went with the small and was glad I did. The dress is very thin and is good for warmer weather. All in all, I would rent it again for a summer party.

Gorgeous, flattering (even at 7 months pregnant)

I rented this for a trip to Palm Springs. The weight of the fabric, cut and pattern are perfect for vacation. I didn't end up wearing the belt at the waist (because I have no waist right now). I felt beautiful in the dress - it was very comfortable even with a 7 month baby bump.

Fun, light dress perfect for rooftop season!

Wore this dress to a rooftop bar in the evening as well as a rooftop BBQ in the daytime and everyone loved it! The off the shoulder look is perfect for summer although it sometimes didn't stay off the shoulders, which sometimes pulled it up higher, but looked cute both ways! The fit was loose but the belt gives it a nice waistline. I wore it with blue shorts underneath because it is a bit short (I'm 5'10").

Draper James for the win!

I wore this to a casual pool party and received so many compliments. It runs a little on the larger side. I'm normally a medium and I ended up wearing the small. It does come with a belt accent, but I chose not to use the belt. This was my first Rent the Runway rental and I'm hooked!

It's cute and summery

It does run pretty true to size. i stay between a 4 and 6, leaning towards 6 and i wore the M. The S fit but it seemed to short. I found myself pulling the shoulders down quite a bit. I tried both sizes to see if that was the issue and same thing. I did mess with the sash quite a bit too. It is cute and comfortable aside from those minor issues. I did also feel like it is a dress for someone younger.
