Perfect dress!
I love everything about this classy dress. Works well if you have a large chest, I'm a 34DD and no bra needed. It's very true to size. Hit mid thigh on me. Paired with nude strappy heels. Rent it!!

Beautiful dress
I rented this dress super last minute for a wedding, so my options were very limited. I rented my normal size, but because I have pretty broad shoulders and a larger chest (34d) I was afraid the dress would be too tight. They didn't have a larger size available, but the dress ended up working out beautifully. Yes, it was definitely tight around my shoulders- so much so that I was a little afraid of lifting my arms up too high and ripping the dress. It was super flattering, felt maybe a hair tight for me, but I don't think I've ever received so many compliments on a dress, so obviously no one could tell it felt tight. The color is a beautiful true navy, and the fabric feels sturdy and thicker than you would expect. Overall a pretty comfortable dress. I have an athletic body type- broad shoulders, straight waist with narrow hips, but a larger bust and broad shoulders, so finding dresses that flatter my figure are not always easy to find. Loved this dress, gave me more of an hourglass shape!

classy,different, and sexy
The material is not very giving so being that it is off the shoulder I wish I had gone with a 10 so that I had more wiggle room to raise my arms. The cut of the dress and the off the shoulder detail is very flattering. I would say I have an athletic build and I'm actually 17 weeks pregnant in this picture, I weighed 155 and I'm 5'6. Over all I should have gone with the ten but I would rent this dress again, the color is great and was perfect for a wedding guest. This was my first rental and it went well! I wish I had a full body from the wedding but I didn't get any!

Very flattering but runs small!
This dress was super cute and worked perfect for the wedding I attended. I'm usually a true 6 but had trouble even getting it zipped!! Was really snug in chest area. If I'd had an 8 would have been perfect!!

It is beautiful! Wish I could've worn it.
What a gorgeous, well-made dress. I wanted to wear this to a cocktail party so badly, but I couldn't zip it past my chest/upper back. I'm a 36C/D and ordered a size 8. The waist and hips fit wonderfully, with room to spare, but my chest and shoulders would have none of it. I wish a size 10 were available for another event I have next month, but this dress is getting noticed so it's "sold out".

Simple and beautiful!
This dress was the perfect fit! Kept going back and forth between the 4 and 2. Finally decided on the 2 as the bottom laid better in the smaller size. The dress was very comfortable and sat nicely off the shoulder. Due to the cut, it was a little difficult to lift my arms up high, but that didn't hinder my ability to hit the dance floor. The dress was the perfect length. I am 5'4" and it hit a few inches above the knee. Very fitted in the chest/mid section, so would get a bigger size if you have a large chest or if you don't have a narrow waist. I wear a 34c and was able to get by without wearing a bra. Material was very thick and laid nicely. Received tons of compliments. Would highly suggest!!

Great weekend dress or fancier dinner dress. Make sure to pull the shoulders up a bit or else you'll feel like you can't move your arms. Worn with: Tan Sandals Would I rent again? Yes! Do I recommend for (NYC) everyday wear: Yes! But expect some head turns

Love this dress but it ended up being too small for me to wear. Didn't have enough time to rent another size. Will definitely rent in the future for upcoming events.

The reviews are spot on... Don't expect to be able to throw your arms in the air on the dance floor. Beautiful dress. I got lots of compliments. I paired it with the nude Nudist heels from SW (like the pic). Perfect!

Shoulder sensation
I rent this for a wedding. To give context, I am 5'7", 120 lb, 25" waist and 34 AA bust. I got the 0 on, but it was too tight around the shoulders. The 2 fit great around my shoulders, but was a little looser around the waist. The dress flowed better in the 2. It worked well for this early fall wedding.

Fun & Flirty Party Dress!
Wore this dress to an outdoor wedding, it was perfect style-wise. Appropriate, not too formal, and still fun because it's pretty short. A few things to note: the off the shoulder neckline makes it slightly difficult to raise your arms very high, and there isn't any give in the fabric. My husband had to help me zip it up and I think I may have been more comfortable had I worn spanx underneath, but luckily it photographed really well and didn't look like there was any bulge or anything. Taking a good selfie was nearly impossible since I couldn't raise my arms beyond a certain point, but that wasn't really a big deal. I wore it with a big colorful beaded necklace and metallic strappy heels. The pockets are a nice touch but because of the fabric and the way the dress hung on me they bulged with just my lip gloss in them so I ended up not using them and just carrying a clutch all evening. I might have been more comfortable in my back-up size (size 6), but unfortunately it wasn't available. In the end everything worked out. I received lots of compliments and overall felt really great. The issue of not being able raise my arms high was not as much of a problem for this event (sitting, eating, dancing).

Cute and classy dress.
Wore a size 4, and I think this was pretty true to size. The event was a wedding "welcome party". You can dress the navy up or down, which made it perfect for this kind of event. Loved the off the shoulder, and the sleeves. This dress does have pockets though, which I didn't realize when I ordered, and I felt like it made the sides stick out slightly. Still a really flattering cut and great length- thought it was cute and classy!

Cute but didn't flatter
I rented this dress in a size 2 and 4. The two fit great throughout the body but was really tight around the shoulders in the off-the shoulder part. I do have more athletic shoulders so that could have been the problem. Sadly, the 4 fit great around the shoulders but then didn't fit close enough to my body and that combined with the fact that the dress has pockets, made me look way wider than I really am. Not flattering all around. Also - wouldn't recommend wearing this dress to anything where you have to hug a lot of people! Hard to lift the arms!

Breath taking in Blue
This dress had been sold out but suddenly at 3A a size 2 became available and I decided to risk it, I usually comfortably wear a 4 but this dress fit like a glove! It hugged me at the skinniest part of my chest and it just made me look very skinny! Loved it! Arms were a bit hard to move given the cut but I danced the night away! Received so many compliments! I wish I could buy this dress

Beautiful and unique
Love love loved the dress. It fit everywhere but was too snug in the bust to zip so I couldn't wear it :( I was pretty sad because the rest of it looked great. But I should have taken the other reviews to heart in this one. There just wasn't an available backup size and I loved the dress so much I took the risk. If I lose a little weight or get a bigger size I will definitely order this another time. Looked great with stiletto black booties or high brown boots.

Got lots of complaints and the fabric is pretty thick so I stayed warm during hurricane Matthew
I went with the bigger size so that I could move my arms more. If you don't care about that then it fits true to size

Great dress!
Love the material of this dress - it was heavier than expected and kept me warm at a chilly October wedding! Had to use my extra size due to the shoulders of the dress being too tight. In the size 6, the shoulders were still a bit tighter than I would have liked. It was hard to raise my hand up in the air on the dance floor. Otherwise, loved this dress!

Flattering fabric and... pockets!
I wore size 4 for two reasons: 1) the size two sleeve/cuffs were tiny and tight and 2) I planned to dance all night and wanted some room in the shoulders, neckline to move. Renting again.

Great for a Fall wedding
Very sophisticated dress! I ordered a 2 because the 0 wasn't available. It was only a tad loose in the mid section but was unnoticeable, the rest fit perfectly. The material is thick which was nice when it started to get cool at night. I didn't have to wear a bra, which was nice because I always have to wear a bra. The length was perfect on me (I'm 5'3). The hanger straps kept coming out so you may want to get some fashion tape to keep those in line. Overall, very happy with this rental. Sad to see it go!

Trendy and classy
This dress was perfect for a chilly October wedding. It is classy but adds a bit of sexy with the off-the-shoulder look. I did find, like other reviewers warned, that it was a bit tight around the arms/chest area (for obvious reasons) but it was more comfortable than I expected. Although it restricted my arm movements a little (I could comfortably move them up to about eye level), I would say that is not a concern. Just don't plan on dancing wildly to Shout or YMCA. It's very comfortable, nice, heavy fabric. I am 5' 2", 125, 34B, and typically wear a 2 in dresses that are not fitted around the hips, but I wore the 4 in this because I could not get the 2 zipped around my shoulders. I have a fairly athletic build in my shoulders/arms but smaller in the chest so that might have been the reason. But the 4 fit perfectly -- was very happy with it and received many compliments! Definitely recommend a statement necklace.

Beautiful dress for an outdoor fall wedding
Beautiful dress!!! This dress fits beautifully but runs small. I normally wear a 6/8 and ended up wearing the 10. I saw on previous reviews that it ran small and was glad I listened. The fabric is gorgeous but has zero give! I'm busty (34/D) and it was perfect. I received many compliments.

Beautiful and classy. I received many compliments. I wish I owned it!
I'm ordinarily in between a 10 and 12. I wore the 12 as it fit like a glove and there's no stretch or give to the fabric. Putting it on was a chore as the zipper is a challenge but I figured out to put the dress in backwards and zip it up without my arms in the sleeves. Then turn the dress around and squeezed my arms in. Less than ideal but it worked. The fabric is heavy, and very flattering. Perfect for the chilly Fall evening. I'm 5'2", and it hit right above my knee. I loved this dress, and would werar it again in a heartbeat!

Classy, comfortable, for a beautiful Chicago wedding. Go Cubs! ;)
Great dress for a slightly chilly, Chicago October wedding. Could not make up my mind between the 8 and 10- 8 was definitely more form fitting and figure flattering, but a bit tight on the butt. Still fit fine in the shoulders. Would have felt more confident wearing with Spanx. Went with the 10 for comfort, although a bit big and baggier. Had it not been a family wedding, I may have gone with the 8. Only annoyance- hanger straps kept peeking out a bit throughout the night. Other than that, comfortable all night and kept me warmer outside. For reference, 5'7 about 160, generally wear an 8 or 10 depending on brand.

Lovely dress, runs small!
This dress has so much potential- but the four (my go-to-size) fit much more like a two- especially in the shoulders, which were so tight it actually left a red welt when I tried it on. I don't have particularly broad shoulders, so this was a surprise. Although I believe that at times one must suffer to be beautiful, I don't want to be uncomfortable all evening in an all-fitting dress, so I returned it for credit. So size up, and if you do, you won't be disappointed- the dress shape is flattering, the sleeves are so lovely and drape beautifully, and the dress fabric is nicely lined.

Beautiful off the shoulder dress!
The dress was very classy and I received so many compliments. The off the shoulder aspect of the dress was a bit tight. I think going up a size would've made it a more comfortable fit. No one could tell it was tight, but it was hard to dance in (you could only lift your arms up a certain amount). Even though it was tight on top, it was very form fitting and flattering! Would order again.

Classy and sassy
I am 5' 4" and 142 pounds but my upper body and lower body are disproportionate. So the pockets and tighter fit on the bottom made the dress bunch a little bit at my hips. I received the 4 and 6 and even though the bottom was tighter on the 4, it fit better overall than the 6. Like everyone says, the off the shoulder fit makes it nearly impossible to lift your arms up but that was totally fine. The dress felt classy but sassy and I received many compliments.

Beautiful fall styled dress
I wore this dress to a bridal shower in late October and received tons of compliments all day long. I ordered the size 0 and 2 originally. The day that the dress was expected to ship I received an email from RTR saying the 0 is not available due to a previous customer returning it late or ruining the dress. They made it right by allowing me to get the size 2 and pick another dress (up to double the cost of my original order) in two sizes as a back up. Great customer service! Well luckily the 2 was the dress to fit because I loved this dress compared to the back ups provided! I think a 0 would have fit my lower body better but the 2 fit my shoulders just right (the 0 would have been to tight on my shoulders). My only complaint is since I was the maid of honor I was picking up gifts and carrying them over to her so the neckline made lifting your arms up high a little difficult, but nothing that prevented me from moving around.

Overall this was a fun dress to wear to my 40th birthday party.
The size up seemed too big but the actual size I used was tight in the arms. It was cute but gave me limited movement.
