Cute but get a size bigger

I really liked this dress but made the mistake of ordering a size too small. If I order again I will need to order a size bigger. Otherwise length is fine and sleeves are super cute. Overall a cute retro dress. Just get a size bigger!

Pros - Fun and flirty light fabric, moves nicely and comfortable. Runs true to size, Great for women with long arms Cons - Shorter than expected. Bunches a bit in the back when you stand up after being seated for a while.

Perfect Fall Dress

Let me introduce you to this year's perfect Fall dress. It's light and moves oh so gracefully. The only con I have is that it wrinkles fast. That being said, I received several compliments and was able to return the compliment by introducing them to RTR. Rent the dress... you won't regret it.

Didn't work for me

Hello! I loved this dress online, but once or was on me, the arms were super long and it wasn't the most flattering on me... Didn't end up wearing it 😫

Fun fall night out with the bestie

It was a little short, but overall I loved it! Perfect color for a fall rental and it's not something I would typically wear, so I was glad to try something new as part of my unlimited subscription.

Not great, fit very small.

I did not like this dress, I'm very petite and couldn't even get the size 2 on.

Odd Fit

Ok so, I love this style! Unfortunately the sleeves were longer on me than the length of the dress. I rented a size 6 and because there's no stretch in the arms below the elbow, it was very tight to put on and I have unusually scrony arms. Super short dress for a girl with a booty...

Feels like it shrunk

Cute dress but the body felt tight and then the arms were super long. It just feels like it was shrunk in the dryer.

Beachy not professional

This dress is not a work dress. It looks conservative in the picture but it's really just light weight flyaway cotton, with lots of wrinkles. I could barely fit my arms in the sleeves it was so tight. There's no give even though it has elastic.

Fit is very tight through the waist and very generous everywhere else.

Fabric is very casual.

Cute but narrow

A great youthful dress, somewhat short (I'm 5'6"). Too narrow for my shoulders and chest.

Fun style.

Was more brown than red. Very short! Wore as a tunic. Also, the arms seem very tight at first but then do loosen up

Neck looked stretched out and arms were a bit too puffy for me. I didn't wear it.

I'm a 32DDD and my chest fit fine and the waist was flattering. The skirt was a little full and made me look hippier than I am. Also, the embroidered parts are see through.

Ended up sending this back and not wearing it.

The sleeves are very, very puffy. More so than the picture shows. I was not a fan and sent it back.

Kind of stiff, funky proportions

The forearms of the sleeves were SUPER tight and didn't stretch at all, the waist fit perfectly, however the upper arms were super baggy and the sleeve length was too long. I don't think I could have sized up or down given these issues without further exaggerating some other part. Also the crochet parts on the chest and waist are very open, which would have made some sort of slip necessary to cover a bra and a little obnoxious since I didn't think it would need one. The skirt part was cute and flattering standing still, just a stiff material that doesn't swing or move at all. Ended up not wearing.
