So fun! Want to buy

I didn't end up wearing this to my event because the weather was way too warm.. But this dress was adorable! It is slinky and the low cut makes it sassy even though it is a sweater dress.

Snuggly Yet Sexy

Wore this on a warm fall day that turned chilly by dinner time. Flattering fit, and the graphic design pattern gave the dress a presence that didn't require a lot of accessorizing. Didn't need ironing. I have sensitive skin and yet this fabric didn't itch me. I could have slept in it!!

Perfect day after Thanksgiving dress

Loved the bold, geometric Zapotec print on this thick, soft fabric that kept me warm on a 50 degree night. It's pretty loose fitting, but that worked well for hiding the post-Thanksgiving bloat. The neckline is low-cut, so it still showed some cleavage and is tailored to be flattering on curvy bodies. It also has slits in the side that make it easy to move in and isn't too long to require heels or sweep the floor. I wore it to a brewery and got a lot of compliments. Obviously, it's a really trendy print, though- me and my bestie inadvertently matched! If you are looking for something more cutting edge or fancy, this isn't the dress for you.

Loved the dramatic geometric print of this dress!

The small fit me perfectly. The weather was beginning to turn here in Northern California, and this dress was the perfect weight for the weather. It kept me warm all day and into the evening. I was comfortable and felt stylish throughout the day!

Comfortable and classic

This dress is very comfortable but not great to sit in for a long period of time. The back will stretch out and give you a slouchy butt. This dress ran big and was a bit short on me but with tall boots it worked out.

Too short to wear

Unfortunately, this dress had been hemmed far too short for me to wear, even with flats. It would have been impossible with heels. It seems so odd to me that RTR hems things so much from how they are sold in the stores - I understand that petite girls rent dresses, but many times there isn't even an option. This has happened to me several times. Bummer too, because it's really cute.

Stark classic patterns meet contemporary look

I wore this sweater dress to a fancy dinner at The Awahneee Hotel in Yosemite. I received compliments all around--from men, older women, 20something women. The stark patterns are dramatic but were perfect in a classic rustic upscale wintry setting. I would totally wear it again but probably wouldn't purchase because it felt prone to stretching out.

Ok, not my favorite

dress was just ok. The slit was high so I had few options for shoes. It was cute nothing to rave about on. Slightly baggy. I wouldn't rent it again but I didn't hate it.

Bump Friendly

I wore this dress for a birthday brunch 34 weeks pregnant. The dress is a heavier fabric but perfect for fall, and has some stretch to it. The length was a little bit short with my bump being a little bit bigger but overall it was very comfortable.

Great flattering sweater dress

Didn't know if extra small would fit my butt/thighs because I'm 32B top but bigger on the bottom. Loved the fit didn't feel too wide at bottom. Liked the slots wore my Paul Greens looked great and comfortable.

Comfortable Chic

Loved the comfortable, southwest chic of this dress. I wore it with cowboy boots. Received a lot of compliments. I added a slip because the fabric isn't very thick.

Comfy and trendy

I'd wear this a lot if I owned it. It's so easy to style with boots. I'm petite and would only recommend if you're wearing boots with some height because of the slit. Great for cleavage if you're into that sort of thing.

Great casual dress

I really liked this dress. Great for a cute winter look. The side slits are a bit high, but it gave it a little bit of sexiness without being over the top. I would buy this dress as a staple for my closet.

Cozy Chic - Runs Large

I rented this for a girls night in and loved every second. I am usually a size 6 or a medium but sized down for this as Free People usually runs large. I wore the small and it was perfect. So comfy and chic - I even wore it the next day for day drinking. Can't go wrong with Free People! I will say that as the hours went on it does stretch out. But because I wanted to be comfortable I did not mind. Wore with black booties and black leather jacket - winter perfection.

Very flattering sweater dress

I received a lot of compliments on this dress. The small and medium didn't seem that big of a difference in size. I ended up wearing the small but I thought I had the bigger size on, funny. I ended up wearing a high waisted spanx under just to feel more comfortable. I'm tall so the slit was not an issue. I wore black flats.

Comfortable and modest

I rented this dress for a week in Nantucket Island in September. I thought it would make for a cute dinner outfit on the chillier fall nights. It definitely is cute and unique and I love the warm cozy feel of the fabric. However, the bustline cut is very modest and the fit along the body is unforgiving of even the slightest bulge. It paired nicely with a leather jacket and booties, but I wouldn't rent it again.

Softest dress ever!

This maxi was soft and cozy, perfect for fall. The V neckline is a bit deep on me but I wore a black undershirt underneath and it looked fine. Everyone suggested I should buy it, and I totally would, because of the beautiful fit and pattern.

Great casual dress. Very flattering fit

I ordered the Large and Medium, thinking that I would probably wear the large. The medium actually fit great. Fitting enough but not tight. Very flattering in the mid section. I ordered it for a casual work event and liked it so much that I wore it to family photos the following morning.

The dress arrived on time and in good condition.

This is the third time I've rented this dress. The first time I rented a small which felt too big, not enough sexy for me! The second I rented it was an extra small which was sexy for a day date. The third time I went back to the small to wear to work. Go larger if you need to look professional go smaller for sexy! Plus, it's SO comfortable!

So comfy

This dress runs a bit big, as it is not form fitting. I've had my eye on this dress for a while and I love it. Only thing is, it's a sweater dress, so great for fall as winter, but I have no use for it now because it's already pretty warm where I am. I will absolutely get this dress again with my unlimited and probably buy it. The splits on the sides come to about the knee, and since I'm curvy, it fit around my chest and hips, but was very loose at the waist. I'll end up wearing a thick belt with it.

I also love this dress and ended up finding it on Nordstrom rack for $25 recently!

This dress is SHORT!

This dress looked great, but unfortunately at 5'8 it was mid-calf on me and obviously looked odd. It fit well otherwise, its very slenderizing pattern. The dress looked like maybe it shrunk in the wash? I don't know how to explain this but if you are over 5'4 I would not rent this due to length.....

This dress was very warm and comfy for everyday use

This dress, even though it was a SR it fitted me well. Not too tight. As i said, it was very comfortable and if you're good with 'high' slits, it was just right! Unfortunately, being a Christian, and my Dress portrays Christ (in my life), i was very uncomfortable. The length of the slit was a bit too high therefore causing me to wear 'something' else beneath the dress (besides a black slip, which didn't look quite presentable.) That is the 'ONLY' con against this beautiful outfit. Now, i knew there were a slit, but usually, i can maneuver it and make it not too noticeable, but not this time! (lol) Other then that, the dress was Great! I loved it! and care to rent again. I do recommend it to you viewers. You will fall in love with it as soon as you put it on. It VERY comfortable! The material is not clingy nor itchy. My pictures, being that I was taken them, could get a great view of how it 'really' looked on me and how i did the split. I actually wore another knit skirt of length as the dress underneath therefore giving it a pleated look on the side. Sorry, about the pictures not being able to show. But did show the fit and how i dressed it up. I also loved to give a smile to my viewers ... so, Until my Next Review, do stay underneath His Wings and He will Forever Protect you! sj

Great everyday dress.

I love this dress and don't want to return it. It is by far the most complimented dress I've rented from RTR. I wore it with a leather jacket (thanks to another reviewer's tip) and tall suede boots. It looks great and it's very warm. It feels a bit like wearing a not-so-scratchy wool blanket.

Beautiful, comfortable, appropriate for daytime or nighttime wear. A great piece.

There are deep side slits up to the mid-thigh on me. A nice v-neck, slightly modest. Print is off-white and black rather than pure white and black. A warm, cosy, stunner.

I didn't take a picture of this dress, which I now regret, but this dress is fabulous! It fits very well, and isn't snug. I wore it for a birthday dinner and got lots of compliments. I'm 5'8" and didn't have any issues with the height of the slit. Would definitely recommend renting!

My favorite rental so far! Casual with a bit of leg... what could be better?

I am shorter, so I had to belt the dress. However, I loved the thicker fabric and relaxed top. I will be renting this dress again or possibly just buying it.

I wanted to keep this!

I am 22 weeks pregnant, with a nice little bump, which is making dressing cute for work a little hard! I rented this dress through the Unlimited Program and loved it. It runs true to size, and is stretchy. Looked great with booties and a leather jacket. I got so many compliments on it, I think I will rent it again as long as the weather stays cool!

Comfortable and you will get compliments all day long!

So so so cute for everyday. I walked into a grocery store with this dress on and three men walked up to me and called me beautiful- this dress is magic. I'm 5'6" and I wore the small, with booties on it's not quite floor length.
