Beautiful painted blue dress

I have never seen a dress like this. I think looked better in person than the app. Almost looks like a painted blue over black. Fitted, conservative and yet sexy. Puts a spin in the traditional LBD (little black dress)!

Perfect dress for a big work meeting

Wore this for a presentation I had to give for work and it was perfect. Classy, professional, yet a little edgy with the black and blue color pattern. Was exactly what I was going for. I am normally a 2/4 but ordered the 4 and 6 based upon other reviews and wore the 4. would say it was true to size. I wish I had the 2 to try on - as the top was a bit big, but the 4 worked as well.

Wore this dress for a business event. It looked great, stood out in a crowd of business suits, and was totally work appropriate.

Fit like a glove except for being s little poofy in the stomach. Was very comfortable.

Fit like a glove except for in the stomach area, which was a little poofy. The length was perfect and the dress itself was very comfortable. I wore it to an important work meeting. The Blues were not as bright as I expected but I liked it none the less.

Christmas Eve Dress

This dress was perfect for Christmas Eve at our Greek Orthodox Church. I felt pretty and it was conservative. I just had a baby and it was forgiving. Great dress for a conservative event.

Perfect winter dress!

The colors really pop on this dress in person. I went with the larger size because the shoulders and chest were too constricting with the 4. This is a heavy fabric, so it's perfect for an event in the winter. The dress was comfortable both sitting and standing.

Cute dress but was a little tight

Really nice dress but was a little tight. I didn't end up wearing it also because the shoulders stuck up a little. Not sure if that was a design choice or if it just didn't fit right.

Looked so polished!

Really loved this dress. Wore to a board dinner st the art museum. Was doing a bit of running around and it was extremely comfortable. Went with a bigger size because the 12 was tight around the bust; wish the 14 wasn't so long and found it a bit baggy in the hips. Otherwise got a ton of compliments. Perfect for a fall time event.

Really beautiful, but too tight

Really beautiful colors and I loved the thicker fabric. Unfortunately, this is my second rental for a special occasion where the dress I ordered didn't fit. If you have a booty, order your normal size plus one size up. I would definitely rent this one again in a larger size.

Perfect for work!

Loved this dress for work super classy and fit well. The only negative -- it was really worn out you could tell it was used a lot ... parts of the dress were frayed and coming off it felt old :(

Nice dress for work

I liked the dress. I didn't love it. It was. Ice for work. But was a bit "old lady" style for me. Wouldn't rent it again.... but I did think it was ok and definitely appropriate for work.

Professional, yet comfortable for huge work event!

Fantastic dress for my company's annual dinner. I had to find something that I could wear to work/host the evening while being confident and somewhat comfortable. This dress hit on everything I needed. I did feel the dress ran a little small, especially through the bust. I'm glad I got the 12 or I would have been running around the night before! And who wants to do that?!

I ordered a 4 and a 6. Ended up wearing the 4. Glad I went down in a size for backup. Was perfect for a work Christmas Party. Would rent again. Loved it.

Good bar mitzvah dress

This was a great choice for a bar mitzvah in a conservative temple. The dress is great, but unfortunately is a bit worn. It is starting to pill badly at the neckline and hemline. Also, it had a very strong, unpleasant smell--perhaps because of the dry cleaning methods?

Great day at the races with freinds. The dress was beautiful...lots of compliments.

I wore the 12, but the 10 fit also...just a little snug at the top. It has a very sophisticated/classic look. I wish I could figure out how to get the picture from facebook onto here, but I am a bit challenged! The color was rich. I loved the fact that it hid my tummy!

I picked the dress to wear to an interview -- it would have been perfect if it had fit!

The style of this dress is fantastic -- the black and the colored sections set each other off perfectly, and, combined with the exposed zipper, makes what could be a very traditional style something very of-the-moment. The fabric is very thick and heavyweight, so don't wear it someplace where you could be hot or when the temperature is high. I found the fit to be small, and that the shinier fabric in the front is not as smoothing and forgiving as the black fabric.

Modest, Elegant, and classy dress for the opera

I rented this dress for a holiday opera. I received compliments about the shape and color. The fabric is stable in structure. I am normally a 2 but I ordered a 4 and am glad that I did. Slightly tight in the hips and thighs.

Beautiful dress, ran small for me.

I'll admit I usually wear 4 but I fit size 2 just as often. I was excited to wear this to an interview but I looked like a sausage with my belly button even showing through the fabric with 2 Spanx on. Gorgeous dress but I advise going larger on your 2nd size. I was not able to wear my rental because the size 4 was sold out when I needed it. Super beautiful dress though.

Unable to wear the dress:(

This is a beautiful, very well made, structured dress. It runs VERY small, especially if you are large busted. I ordered a 6, normally wear a 4-6. Unfortunately I had to choose between having a few ribs removed or not wearing the dress. I chose to not wear the dress:) I had to return it unworn.

I can usually wear a 0 or 2 but this dress is cut narrow in the hips and I couldn't get the 0 on! I'll try again with the 2 or 4 for another event- the dress is beautiful!

This dress fit like a dream and made me feel FABULOUS!

I rented this dress to officiate a wedding and received numerous compliments. I was surprised to see that the size I thought I needed was just a touch large, but the smaller size fit me incredibly. I simply couldn't have asked for a better fit or a better design for the occasion. I will most definitely RTR again!

Very good day-to-night dress!

This was a good dress for a conference I organized. Nothing that blew my mind, but the dress is very well-made and certainly did the job. It's more elegant than it looks on the website, and less stiff-feeling too. Note that the dress does have a very strong sheen to it--I was lovingly called a "Rainbow Fish" (like the children's book) at one point. it would be a great dress day-to-night dress!

Baby..four months prior..not normal size...felt great in this dress.

Had a baby four months prior had trouble with sizing, on line chat and recommendations helped so much, was worried about it being to tight and looking like I did not have a proper fit, ordered in both 12 and 14, wore the 12 forgiving. Great material it meet the need of business attire with a little more class. I had very little confidence in my appearance but received several compliments and it just made my night to feel great. Thank you is not enough words to say when I got a little bit of myself back.

Stood out in a room of LBDs!

Wore the dress for a work event. The quality fabric and construction was true to Elie Tahari! The color was perfect in a room full of boring black. The stretchy fabric is great to accentuate a curvy frame and was comfortable throughout the evening. I had so many compliments! Would recommend and I'll keep it in my favorites!

Flattering dress is probably better on taller women

I liked this dress but didn't love it. The fabric is a very substantial, tight knit (which happens to be flattering for me) - it would not be comfortable for a hot weather event. We had an unseasonably warm day for March (mid-60s) and it was a nice weight when the evening cooled down. I am a curvy 5'2" and thought the waist on the dress was a tiny bit too long for me. The zipper is quite long in back so it came down past the top of my rear end - I would have preferred for it to end at lower back, not upper butt! I ordered it in two sizes and only one size arrived - luckily, it fit. It would be a great dress for an evening work event.

My style icon complimented me on this dress at the event!

This dress fit me beautifully. It's structured enough to hold everything in, but stretchy enough for me to sit, stand, and move comfortably - perfect for the busy work gala I wore it for. Love the details of the nip in at the waist and the sleeve length. I accessorized with blue net stockings and terrific chunky heels, but you could go lots of ways with accessories here. Many compliments. Loved it!

elegant and chic

the dress is beautiful, with rich shades of blue swirled on the front panel. i am self conscious of my thighs/legs, and at 5ft 8in, the dress hit wonderfully at the top of my knee. the dress is thick and sturdy, and the black waist side panel is very slimming. i would recommend this dress for many occasions. If you are looking for a chic, elegant dress, this ones for you.

A good mix of conservative with splash of glam

I wore this to a work event. It's a good mix of conservative with a splash of glam. I liked the dress and got compliments. Just wish I had rented my size and a size down instead of a size up. Other reviewers reviewed it as 'true to size' and 'runs small' so I went with my size and up just incase but I think it runs alittle big. Otherwise great dress, great material and quality.
