Odd sizing in hips

If you are a curvy fit, esp. if petite, this may not be an ideal dress. I am on unlimited, so didn't get a back-up, so not sure if sizing up would help. On my petite frame, the waist in this dress was about 1 inch off my hips which made the hips super tight and accentuated my stomach in a bad way. Also, I am curvier, so it just looked really awkward. Everything zipped, but bc of the odd fit, the shoulders had about an extra inch of fabric and the waist was way too low. I have it stars bc the color is a gorgeous bright print and it felt great. I also loved the ruffle. If I had smaller hips (Medium at Athleta for reference), and my torso was much longer, I think this dress would be very cute. Other Draper James size 6 items fit-so a little bummed.

Vibrant

Great color and print. Fit well, but bust was a bit tight. Liked the longer length. Fabric was on the thick side but wearable during heatwave.

Tight yet loose? Perfect for a lovely pear shape

Gorgeous color and shape but unfortunately it was way too tight in the bust but super loose from the waist down.

Pretty color

Received tons of compliments . The linen fabric is a great choice for a super humid summer day. This is not something that would pack well in a suitcase though.

Feminine

Feminine fit. Like other reviewers noted I thought the bottom half was a little tight so if you have larger hips it might not be a good fit. Im pretty average and it was fine for me. Fabric is heavier and doesn't have much stretch

Loved this dress!

This dress fit me perfectly - loved it!! However, I would not suggest this for someone with a short torso because it just wouldn't fit correctly. I loved the bright yellow color for summer and I got so many compliments in the dress- it was perfect for work.

Much much better than the model photo

The color is great. It fits snug but not big. Flattering cut and fit. Good length.

Awesome dress - runs small

I love this dress. The material was so lightweight and beautiful color. I wear a size 2 in all other dresses I've worn from RTR or that I have purchased and this 2 was just a little soo small. I couldn't get the zipper passed the ribbon detail that sits at the mid rib cage level. Bummed I didn't get to wear it.

Adorable but not for large chest

Great print, top was way too small. Will try to size up 1-2 sizes.

Left me feeling meh instead of like a magnolia in May!

I rented this for my baby brother's graduation and had very high expectation. Sadly I was just kinda ..."meh"... The fit was a bit wonky, maybe better for an athletic body. The fabric wrinkled very easily which led to several steaming sessions. I was very thankful for the backup option

Loved this dress!

Rented this dress for a summer vacation and LOVED it! If you are between sizes, size up as this dress has no stretch/give. I would totally buy this if I had more places to wear it to!

One of my all-time favorite dresses!

I ended up buying this dress right away because I loved it so much. The fabric is beautiful and fabulous quality. I love the style of Draper James items, but they have been hit or miss with me, some of them running small/short or having stiff fabric. This dress is on another level (which explains why it's pricier than most DJ dresses). If you're into yellow, you should absolutely give this dress a try. The fit and the print are bold yet classic and the cut is gorgeous. I've worn it countless times.

pretty, runs slightly large

Ordered an 8, 5'3", 135lb. Too big all over, hit me just at the knees, large in waist, large in torso. I typically order a 4 but sized up here based on reviews. I'd say this dress probably runs slightly large and I would recommend order your size or if you're between, the smaller of the two. Did not wear, too large to make work. Great feel, great fabric, cute print. Better for work sundress than a flirty sundress.

Rented as a work dress.

It's a little loose in the waist and wasn't my style, but otherwise would be a lovely summer work dress.

Beautiful but runs small

Loved the print and summery color, but I couldn't even wear it because it was so tight around my mid-section. It was disappointing since this is the size I typically wear.

Very Yellow

I didn't end up wearing this. I rented it on a whim because I have unlimited but it was a little too fancy for my office with the bright yellow. It is a really nice dress though for a special occasion. It fit in the chest but it was a bit too loose in the waist. This is usually the case with Draper James for me but the looseness was more noticeable with this dress.

A little tight around the lower rib cage, but nice overall and a good fit.

Kicked my work day style up several notches!

Perfect fit, and I got so many compliments! Love the detail at the neckline and the movement in the skirt. Fully lined. Loved the bright color and pattern. I had been eying this dress on the Draper James site but it was too pricey for me. Renting was a great option.

Great Style and Color For Summer Events!

I wore this dress with neutral pumps. Embellished it with a string of pearls. It was so cute and fun to wear. I received numerous compliments each time I wore it to an event. The style is very flattering with the hem making it a bit flirty. This was a great design by Draper James.

Gorgeous pattern and color for spring

Worn to work with a jean jacket since it's still a little on the cold side of spring but got tons of compliments. The fit is fantastic and the hem has a little flare that makes it stand out.

Loved this dress! It looks average on the hanger, but really complimented my figure.

The material is very soft. If you are like me and are smaller on top (but have a decent booty) this dress fits perfectly without being too tight/clingy through the hips.
