This was a great dress - something unique without being too flashy!

While pretty true to size, it does run a bit narrow in the hips/thighs for us pear shaped girls! I still wore the 6 rather than the 8 because the chest area on the 8 was a little baggy. Overall, loved the dress, very satisfied with the whole process!

This is a beautiful dress but it just didn't fit my body type well.

This is a beautiful dress truly, but just didn't fit my body type well. I have narrow hips and this dress seemed wide in the hips to me compared to the fit of the bust/torso. Wish I had had time to exchange it for something else.

Appropriate for a conservative event.

I wore this for a work cocktail party. It was conservative but flattering. The dress did not look new, but it was clean with no major problems. The pull on the zipper was broken but I was still able to zip it. Overall I liked the dress and it was what I was looking for. I am a straighter body type and it fit well. I think it could be tight on a curvier body.

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?

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.

Good Dress for Work

I rented for work, true to size, and consistent sizing/fit with other Elie Tahari dresses I have worn in the past. Pretty, eye catching design on the front of the dress. The fabric may have been a bit uncomfortable, but the reason may have been the unfortunate 80 degree office temperature that day. Still worth it for a day!

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!

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!

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.

Professional And Classy

I wore this dress for a trade show wear I was representing my company. I needed to be professional but wanted to stand out and sparkle a bit. I wore with black tights and boots as it's still winter here but so slimming and so comfortable. I loved it and felt sassy and fun all day. If you are curvy and want to feel thin and classy... Go for it! The colors are beautiful too! It doesn't show it but there is a gorgeous teal in with the black and navy, it's subtle. I felt classy but still polished.

Formal but spark dress!

The fit is true to size, the dress is made of a thick fabric, so I think it fits better in the fall or winter. Or a cold day. Overall the dress fits well to the body without being too tight.

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.

Beautiful

Although this dress was my 1st choice - I did not end up wearing it because I let my husband decide which dress I should wear. Never again!! This dress looks SO much better in person and was the most comfortable! And that says quite a bit because I hate to wear dresses and never feel good about myself in them. Love this dress

Blue panel front has a beautiful sheen under the lights!

Rented this beauty for a fancy work dinner birthday party. This dress fit the bill! Conservative, yet stylish...perfect to wear around a professional work group of baby boomers. The material was nice and thick and hid most imperfections. It was very comfortable to walk and sit with. It definitely had a wow factor with the front panel that shimmered underneath the lights. I would recommend this dress for the fall or winter because of its thick weight. It would also look lovely with sheer black hose or tights, and even boots. The dress arrived perfect except for some frayed threads at the bottom of the blue panel. May rent this one again and wear with different accessories.

Warm enough for a chilly venue

Worn for a dress-up Christmas party in an aircraft hangar; this half-sleeved dress was comfortable and appropriate, but not a stunning knock-out dress. The blue front has a pretty sheen, note the nipped in waist shape which helps. Was glad I wore it with a pretty, glitzy necklace. The dress is plain enough that it needs a good necklace. Fit was comfortable; it didn't bind or pinch anywhere. I found that a small tuck hand-sewn in the lining of the sleeve prevented it from peeking out at the bottom. There's enough room in the bust for even a larger size. I'm 5'6" and the dress came to the bottom of my knees (a length I prefer). I'd agree with other reviewers who recommended this dress for work events. It's dressed up and fairly conservative. As with all RTR dresses I've had, it's high quality and very well made.

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)!

Lots of compliments!

This dress looked great on and felt terrific too. It is surprisingly thick and a heavy... beautifully made. I wore this to a winter party where I'd be both inside and outside during the event. This dress was great. I received lots of compliments on it and it fit great too. It was very comfortable too. Might order again.

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.

Great for a special work event!

I ordered a 6 and 8 and I could have worn either, but decided to go with the 8 as the jersey fabric in the back of the dress was more likely to show undergarment lines in the smaller size. I did not wear any shapewear underneath so I thought the larger size was a better choice. I received tons of compliments including from the television reporter who interviewed me.

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.

The dress was great. Service was impeccable.

Threads on the edges from wear had to be trimmed. Be sure to look over piece prior to dressing.
