Tight through the hips
Dress is interesting, but not inspiring. It is cut narrow through the hips, which makes the front pocket stick out. Definitely size up if you have an hourglass shape.

Great conservative dress. No give and a bit snug in the chest but super comfortable.

Perfect for a night at the ballet
I love this sharply tailored black and white dress. Fit was perfect (regular bra totally fine) and length was right. Would recommend for those of us who are tall but short-waisted.

Difficult to zip up
I can't say I recommend if you live alone and need to get dressed by yourself. It has a long awkward zipper that is very difficult to zip up by yourself. I couldn't wear it at all.

Cute but cut a little narrow
I ordered this through my unlimited to wear to work. The dress is cute, well made and works well for the office. The kangaroo pockets were nice and a fun touch. I ordered this in an 8. I typically between a 6/8 but went with the larger size based on other reviews. The dress was a bit snug in the hips and while I'm curvy I don't have large hips. It was also snug in the bust. I'm a 34C...sometimes B so if you have a larger bust (i.e. D cup or larger) this dress could be a problem. All in all it was fun to add to my work wardrobe rotation. I paired it was a black 3/4 sleeve cardigan and black suede block heel shoes. I found I needed to adjust/pull it down when I first stand up due to the snug fit in the hips, but it didn't ride up when I walked, which would have been beyond annoying. I can say I couldn't imagine spending the retail price for this dress but I would recommend for other ulimited RTRer's who like to keep fun things on rotation!

Amazing fit and compliments all day! This is a great dress that you can dress up or wear more for everyday work. The block colors are very flattering and the kangaroo pocket is great when you need to go hands free! Received compliments all day and would definitely rent again!

Beautiful, elegant work dress
I loved this dress -- great color blocks, beautiful fabric, eye-catching zipper in the back. It made for a fantastic work-to-dinner-out statement, and it was easy to add a simple black cardigan when the day started off chilly. My own complaint is that the kangaroo pockets had a tendency to pop out a little in front, as pockets do. It wasn't a huge deal, because the dark color of the dress hid that to a certain extent, but it did mean that I was constantly pulling on the dress to smooth out the pockets. I possibly could have gone up a size and eliminated this problem, but the dress fit well everywhere else.

Sophisticated and classy
I wore this to an industry conference and felt very professional. The length is perfect. I did need help zipping it up. The bust is a little snug as a 34c. Love this dress and would rent again.

Great 70s look
Shorter than I prefer but was still able to wear to work. Was worried it wouldn't fit over my hips but it flares out at the bottom and the little pocket covers midsection well

Overall very work appropriate.
Love the pockets! The top isn't very roomy, tight around the bust and looser at the top (and I'm not busty at all).

Clean, modern work look that I felt good wearing straight to happy hour.
Fits true to size. Maybe order up if you're looking for more of a shift fit. I ordered a 0 and the fit was somewhere between a shift and a sheath. The length was just to my knee (5"6'), so it probably runs a little on the longer. Great for taller gals :)

Very elegant dress!
This is such a nice, elegant dress! I rented it for a formal work day. The fit was maybe not the most flattering since it was more snug in the hip and looser on top, and fell right at the knee on me at 5'3", but I still felt good and really loved the design and solid material. I might try a larger size next time to see if the fit is better. Overall it is a beautiful dress!

The fit is spot on , length is perfect for the office and looked fantastic with a black and white floral statement necklace! The pocket was a bonus and if you wear to a dinner you'll feel comfortable eating. Will definitely rent again. Oh and lots of compliments!

Comfortable designer dress with kangaroo pocket
Fit was true to size, high quality fabric. I felt polished and put together and super comfortable at the same time. Huge win for me! Also a bonus is the tassel on the top zipper. Really easy to zip up.

Boxy
It was a boxy type dress, so it hid my figure. So, not a woo piece. Otherwise, the fit and style was comfortable and work appropriate. I am 5'5, 142lbs, 32 B bust with an athletic body type. I am usually a 2 or 4. Glad i went with the 4, otherwise it would have been too tight in the bust. I would rent again, since it is a simple work dress.

Great summer colorblock dress.
This fits loosely around the waist and hips, but doesn't look like a tent. The pockets in the front are a nice detail. Wore this several times for work and social events. This was an "Unlimited Keeper" - only sent it back because it needed to be cleaned! LOL

Beautiful Color Blocking - Very Elegant
PROS: Comfortable and very easy to wear. Has front pocket! Great for a work related event and can be worn to an evening event. The color blocking gives the dress a slight 9160's vintage appeal and is stunning in the black & white. The fabric is on the heavier side but has a beautiful drape that flatters the female form. Extremely well-crafted dress. I received tons of compliments at work. CONS: Expensive. Slightly stiff fabric, but I didn't mind so much. Rental Condition: Very Good. Very High-Quality Garment Fabric: Excellent and drapes nicely on the body. Comfort: Excellent. Season(s): Spring, Summer, Fall Special Undergarments Required: No. Standard Bra. Surprises: How Comfortable the Dress was to Wear. Would I rent it again? Yes. Measurements Lying Flat Bust: 18" Waist: 16" Hips: 18" Length: 36.5"

This dress is awesome! if it was so expensive I would buy it!
Fits perfectly and can tell it is made well. Slightly tight across the bust so if you are busty not sure how it would look. I'm not so it wasn't an issue. I got so many compliments and will def rent again!

Eye-catching LBD
There's something very unique about this dress. It has a very flattering fit, and I'd suggest wearing your normal size. The white in the front is unusual, but complimentary to the overall design. Instead of more traditional pockets, there's what I'd describe as a quarterback pouch in the front. Material of the dress has a slight stretch to it.

Amazing dress--am in love!
I think this dress looks better in person than in the photos. The dress is lined and the material is of high quality. I love that is has pockets that are in FRONT, so they don't add bulk to the hips. The color blocking is very flattering to my figure and the length is just right for work. The zipper that goes all the way down in the back adds some sex appeal to the dress. If this dress weren't so expensive, I would buy it. I'll definitely rent it again.

Comfortable, classy and fun
This fit a little looser than I had expected but not too much where I couldn't wear it. If I were to rent again I'd get the size 2. It was very comfortable to wear all day and although there's nothing stunning about this it is a cute black and white dress nonetheless

Cute dress for work.
Hips are a bit snug if you are more hourglass. I was skeptical of the location of the front pocket at first, but liked it overall. Good length. Very comfortable.

Great dress!
Wore this dress for a day of marathon meetings at work. I got so many compliments! It was just a touch too long on my 5'0 frame and hit just below my knees, but it fit pretty well everywhere else. There isn't much give in the chest area, so I'd recommend sizing up if you need a little extra room in that area.

Very cute but not comfortable
I got this dress to wear from work to a dinner/drinks night out with friends. It fit perfectly and I got lots of compliments, however the seams around the arms and neck were VERY stiff and made the dress super uncomfortable. It rubbed against my arms and neck all day and night - I couldn't wait to take it off! I am not sure if this is a design of the dress, or just due to cleaning/starching it, but it was quite irritating. It would be bearable for a shorter amount of time, but not for a full day of work + night out.

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.
