Has potential...if it fits you

Cute dress, but sadly too small for me. Usually I'm fine in Free People, but the top section was way too tight for my chest/back (but I do have broad shoulders/large chest). It fit if I didn't button...little on the short side, but if you have a smaller frame...it probably would end up being a little longer anyway.

Planned to wear to Thanksgiving dinner.

I'm glad that I tried this on before my planned event. Like most Free People clothing, this was formless on most of my body and didn't fit my bust. I sized up (I'm usually a 6, I ordered an 8) in anticipation of my usual busty struggle with Free People. But even a size up the collar of the dress pulled down and lost the mod aspect. The dress barely buttoned up in the back. On the subject of the buttons, if you live alone I wouldn't recommend getting this dress. I honestly have no idea how one would get this fastened up. That said, if you live with dexterous friend or partner and have a small C-cup or less then this dress did seem like it would be pretty cute.

Runs way small

What you might not be able to tell from the photos, and the description doesn't mention, is that this has a high waist line that was almost empire on my full busted frame. I am usually a solid size 10 but I'd say this seemed two sizes too small. Not for girls with curves up top. Shame because the material and pattern is lux

This dress is just awkward. I wanted it to work so badly, but the chest part is way too small. Maybe would work for someone with a small B cup or less.

RTR Team Review

Very flattering fit! I liked that it was tight at the top and then flared out . If you have a larger chest you may want to size up though due to the fitted top part. For work, I paired with black tights because otherwise I felt it would have been too short in the back. You totally could wear this for a night out or casual event! Also on the back there are buttons that are super cute but you most likely will need help with closing the ones at the top of the back. Overall really loved this dress and felt like the material was nice quality. Definitely would rent again as you can truly dress it up or down!

Wore this all day on Thanksgiving day.

This definitely runs small. I'm usually a 6 in free people, but could have gone for the 8. It still fit, but was super snug around the waist line. The waist line is also very high, so very tight in the rib cage. Did get itchy around the neck after wearing all day. Love the pattern.
