Wish I could buy!
I just love this dress and wish it wasn't a thousand dollars to buy. It fit me like a glove and although fitted, was totally work appropriate. The zipper detail gave it a sexy flair, making it perfect for desk to dinner or an event where you are looking for conservative but fun.

Classic piece!
I love this dress - I wore it to run an event and also to work. It is professional and fun, and I love the pockets. I would rent your size or one size down. This fit me really well but I still had a little room to give, so I would not size up. I liked a little bit of the extra room because it wasn't too tight, making it totally appropriate for work. This fill well throughout.

Not good for a short wasted woman, unfortunately.
I wanted to love this dress so much, but it just didn't work nicely for me. I am short wasted and it's a structured dress. On my natural waist it looked great, except that the top would have needed to be taken in about 3 inches. When pulled down, it was boxy and not flattering.

Nice concept but not for a large chest.
The fit in the chest was bad. I have a larger chest. It fit, but squashed my chest.

Bold and minimal
I've rented this a few times! I sometimes wear a collared black long-sleeve under the dress, sometimes I keep it sleeveless and pair it with a pop of color in my tights or shoes.

Fun and conservative!
Great length, material, detail and Fit! The zipper in the dress is uncovered inside of the dress too, so if ypu are sensitive to the feeling...heads up...the metal gets hot and cold like any metal would. Will definitely rent this one again!

Just a regular dress. It's made beautifully but wasn't a show stopper. Simple and classic.

Fashion forward, well made dress
Not the best fit for me - squeezed my boobs and the Eskimo pocket fell in a funny place on me. But still a sleek look

Great work dress
This dress is super cute - I rented it for work and it was perfect. It has a cool front pocket that I love as well- it spans across the front of the dress so you can effectively hold hands in it! The zip detail is cool - beware it spans the whole back of the dress ! Will definitely rent again

The event - work - was entirely forgettable. The dress, though, was great.
Fit is lovely - the pockets are brilliant, and the zip detail makes it even more special. I paired it with a floral blazer (also RTR), thought it looked great. Very comfortable, classic and simple.

Small across the chest
I would have gone up a size, but then the arm openings would have been too large.

Lot of compliments
Sleek dress that's great for work. I didn't realize there is a front pouch, which looks a little odd, but the overall effect is charming.

LOVE this dress
This dress is so beautifully made...the picture doesn't do it justice. The fabric is thick so it holds you in and hugs the body nicely without feeling too tight. The kangaroo pocked in the front is fun. Definitely a perfect dress for work.

Work dress perfection!
Beautifully made dress that is totally work appropriate. Nicely fitted through the bodice and waist with ample room in the hip. The zipper in back adds a sexy surprise. No brainer for a day when you need to look extra competent.

Very tight in the bust.
Flattering fit, however, I didn't realize the description said it was best for A to C cups. As a DD, the 12 did not fit.

Very cool look; not for sitting
This could be my favorite rent as far as look goes. It's really cool, with interesting details front to back. BUT... if you have to sit all day, you might want to pass. The zipper goes all the way down to the back hem and is very uncomfortable to sit on. But if you're on the run, it is a really good look.

Great daytime dress
I wore this to a Sunday luncheon. Very cute, well-fitting. I wore it with black tights, tall black boots and a cream coat.

KaufmanFranco just makes an amazing dress!!
This dress is the first daytime-friendly KaufmanFranco I've worn. Amazing cut, fabric, and detail, just as expected. The zipper in the back is super sexy, not to mention the color block pattern. Love the pockets in the front, too. Totally recommend!!

Great quality
The dress is made of a thick fabric and is clearly great quality. The color blocking is also very flattering. I wore this in the winter so I had to add a blazer so some of the fun qualities of the dress were lost. But I would definitely rent again for the summer to show off the fun zipper in the back.

Really cute. Interesting. The zipper that goes all the way up adds a little spice.
It's tight on my chest - if I get it again I would definitely go one size up.

Too small at the very top, not as thick as I would have expected.
For the price tag I would have expected a thicker material. It has nice line and the kangaroo pouch is interesting but the very top and even neck whole are a little small. Good for someone small but I have broad shoulders so it wouldn't zip. Would be a good work dress if it fit.

Great structure
Great for work with dinner after, I should have ordered a size down but it was still wearable,though a little long. I loved the front pocket and the two tone pattern.

RTR Team Review.
Fun color block shift dress by KAUFMANFRANCO! Running true to size, we recommend going one size up for backup. With no stretch in the fabric and a tighter fit in the bust, this dress is better for smaller cup sizes. The midsection is fitted to show off your curves, but it is still comfortable. If you’re curvier, you may want to consider sizing up due to the fitted hip area. This dress can be worn with a standard bra and has pockets! At 35” from the shoulder to hem, this dress hits right above the knee. If you’re taller, this dress would hit a little higher. This dress is very flattering and easy to match accessories with. It would look best with heels or flats and colorful accessories.
