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

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size

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.

Conservative yet pretty

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I wore this to a business formal dinner/event. It felt even more conservative on than it appears in the picture. It is a high quality thick fabric. I wore it with sexy shoes, long hair down with waves and as chunky necklace to keep it young, but with an updo and long earrings it would look elegant. There is a little more color in the dress when up close (blues, greens, purple?) but the sleeves are black. It is very pretty and elegant but not a stunner. I would recommend wearing a lighter colored or bright necklace to pop against the hight neckline.

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

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
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.

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: True to Size

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!

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!

Overall fit: True to Size

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.

Overall fit: True to Size

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.

Overall fit: True to Size

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.

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.

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.

old lady dress

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Sorry I didn't take a picture but this dress made me look like and OLD lady and I'm only 23. I got it as a back up dress for a company award party and thank goodness my first choice fit because this dress really aged me. I did like the fabric, it was very giving and the length was great for a work affair (right above the knee on me). If you get this dress make sure you get a back up though in case you hate it like I did!

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

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
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.

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!

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
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.

I rented this for a big conference I was heading up. I thought this would be appropriate for work and that's about all. But I loved this dress. It's subtle and sexy and extremely well made. I've rented many dresses from RTR and this is the most well made dress (good lining, good materials) I've rented so far. Will definitely rent this again.

This dress fits wonderfully -- the fabric is thick enough to provide support, yet stretchy so you don't feel like you're wearing a corset. The length is true to the picture - hits just above the knee. The color is more subtle than the photo would have you believe, but it has a nice sheen.

Warm enough for a chilly venue

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
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.

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.

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.

LOVED this dress!!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
NOTE: I was about 140 lbs and 32D when I wore the size 6 - post baby - not the same measurements as before!! The colors are beautiful, the perfect alternative to a LBD. The longer sleeve and high neckline gave the right amount of coverage for a professional event. The skirt length also was conservative, yet did not make my 5'3" self look short. The dress was nicely lined, and cinched my waistline to make it look smaller - a great bonus while trying to lose baby weight!! Loved this dress and highly recommend it.
