Stylish and retro

Look effortlessly beautiful running around town or to work. Nice midi length. Waist was a bit big, so it needed a belt.

Not Extraordinary

Fits well but the style was very homely looking. Print is cute with hearts. I think it can be benefited with a black belt to break up the print a bit.

FUNKY POCKETS

I loved the flow and styling of this dress. But I am pear shaped and this dress pockets made me look wider than I am. Bummed had to return it without wearing this one

1940's School Teacher

This dress is a great print and moves well, but it's a bit...restrained. If I had to meet a new romantic partner's parents at a religious service, this would be a good choice. I mostly felt like I was doing vintage school teacher cosplay, which would have been more fun if I didn't have to go to work.

Wonderful fabric but too loose fitting for my taste

Lovely fabric that moves really well. But the dress was too big for my taste - not because I ordered the wrong size but because (I think) it is designed to be somewhat loose fitting. As a result of being so relaxed in the waist it made me look heavier.

Bright & beautiful!

Size down! I originally got it in a size 4 and loved it but it was way too big. I ordered it again in a 2 and it was still a little loose in the waist and chest but not enough to stop me from wearing it. I love the color and design. I love the vintage fit and full skirt. I might eventually buy this dress, but I'm holding off for the moment.

Beautiful, comfortable and bright

This dress was perfect for the first warm day of spring. The material is light and has nice movement. The colors are vibrant and the dress has pockets! It does run a bit big so you should size down. I'm usually a 2/4 but have put in a few vacation lbs so a solid 4 at the moment. The 2 fit perfectly in the waist. At 5'3" this was a bit longer on me than the model but the length wasn't overwhelming and I was able to wear the dress with flat Oxford espadrilles.

adorable but size up

i am usually an 8 and only a b cup - i sized up to a 10 because i wanted a looser fit and this was still super right around the rib cage - barely pulled it off BUT i got so many compliments even from strangers.

RTR Team Review

Rented this dress to wear to work and loved it! The sizing fit perfectly - I'm usually a 0 or 2 and have slim shoulders so this 00 fit perfectly. The skirt is really flowy and feminine which I loved. It had a lot of volume without looking bulky. The fabric is a thin crepe material but the dress is fully lined so it's easy to wear. From the photo I thought the pattern on this dress was hearts which made me unsure if it would look right for work, but it's actually a more abstract print. There are pockets at the waist - perfect size for an iPhone and my work ID. Will definitely be renting this again to wear on the weekend!

It's aight

On my tall frame the waist was too high and I looked frumpy. Also to me, the print skews clownish. Fabric is nice though!

Pop of color

Fun dress for the start of spring. I think there's supposed to be a matching belt but it didn't come with my order. True to size and great for curves. The V opening is too low cut for work, I had to pin it.

Didn't love the print, fabric or fit.

This felt a little less premium to me. The fit was too big and it was not flattering b/c it flared SO much below waste. I think I just ordered the wrong size, but I'm just being honest that I wasn't compelled to order it again for a smaller size.

Perfect Family Party Dress

This midi-dress was incredibly comfortable (hello pockets!), flattering, and high-quality. I got so many compliments on it and will definitely be renting it again. I recommend sizing down, ESPECIALLY if you have a smaller rib cage or bust area for your typical size.

Very cute dress! Usually wear a 4 but this is a 2. Runs large in the chest but I was able to pin it (not shown) and was great for work. Can be dressed up or down.

Did not wear.

The dress fit. I sized down, as others recommended. However, just was not flattering. Needed a belt or something to break up the print, and it just seemed very matronly. The fit was just not there. I had chosen it to wear to a rehearsal dinner, but I didn’t even wear it out of the house.

Runs large, never wore

I really wanted to like this dress , put it on twice but couldn't leave my house. 00 was still too big and loose. Felt like a 50s house mom in it.

Beautiful and flows

Fit is below the knees, half way between knee and ankle. Pretty and flows with body when moves. Needed a safety pin for collar as it overs a little low for me.

Fun dress

The dress fit true to size. I taped the top front partly the dress because it was too low cut for work. It has pockets which was awesome. Nice, cute dress for work or everyday.

Odd fit.

Not a good fit for me. While everything fit well, the waist is very high and had an "almost there, but something's off" look to it. Maybe you have to be a waif to wear it; I have an hourglass shape.

All the Hearts!

Loved this dress for teaching. I normally wear a 6 in jcrew and could have definitely worn the 4. Just added a safety pin because it's low cut. Great work dress!

Beautiful dress worn to make me feel lovely at a nice dinner date.

Dress makes you feel feminine. Shows just enough cleavage that you can wear to work, or like I did, to a meeting. Then I wore it to a celebratory dinner on a bright spring day. I felt pretty and feminine all evening. The dress is light without being flimsy, and fits perfectly in all places (including my 34DD). A little loose in the waist, but not noticeable, and actually made dinner more comfortable!

Retro Day to Night Dress

Wore this for a work dress. Pairs well with a belt. Rented a size down, as per reviews, which was the right move. For shorter women, plan on wearing heels. But very fun and flirty retro dress.

CUTE! Vintage vibe!

Really cute dress for work. The pattern is fun but not overly cute-sy. It was a sqinch big in the bust ( but I am very small busted) so a safety pin kept it work appropriate. I am 5'9" and I liked the length and fullness of the skirt. Will definitely add to my " to rent again" list.

I sized down on this after reading the reviews and there was no way it would close in the chest area. It may not even close in my true size.

Casual and flattering

Feels great on, love the flowy skirt w pockets! A lot of people said it ran big but I sized down and wish I hadn't of. I'll reorder in a 10 when I get a chance so I can be more comfortable sitting and eating in it etc.
