Gorgeous color and fit
The color of this dress is even more amazing in person. The sleeves add a fun detail and the fabric is just right!

I couldn't wear the dress.
This dress was very pretty. It was packaged great and arrived when promised. The problem is it was snug in my hip area. If I'd gone with a larger sized the top part would have been much to big. I couldn't where it but if you have narrow hips it would work beautifully!!!

Very flattering!
The cut of this dress is very flattering. The waist & hips areas are fitted enough to be flattering and not hanging like a potato sack, yet loose enough to feel comfortable and not need to wear Spanks with. You can wear a regular bra, the color is very pretty, and the length is perfect; not too short & not too long. The only part of the dress I don't love is the end portion of the sleeves. They aren't too funky, as I had worried they would be, but they will dip into food or drinks on the table if you're not careful.

Beautiful cobalt blue
Beautiful vibrant blue color and great fit. Loose fitting in the body of the dress and conservative length. Would definitely rent again!

Not the best for curvy girls
I rented this for work, but ended up returning as the fit was awful for me. I'm between a 6-8 usually, but most of my dresses from RTR have been running slightly on the large side with the size 8's so I sized down for this one. Maybe an 8 would've worked, but I returned this one immediately. It was a GORGEOUS shade of blue though. Very eye-catching. I rated this dress a 4 because I still think it's beautifully made and would look great on the right figure.

STYLIST REVIEW!
This is a great comfortable style for either a daytime or night event! I love the sleeves, as they make the style unique. The fabric has stretch and is just fitted at the bust. For anyone with a full bust or hourglass body type, I would suggest getting a size up for backup. Overall, the dress has a flowing silhouette and can be dressed up or down with fun bracelets and hanging earrings!

Shows every flaw
Loved the color and concept! Problem... This dress runs very small in the rib cage area and hips but wide in the shoulders. I am a true 10 in a dress and this dress ran very small. It also has a look that shows every flaw. Just not the dress for me so I didn't wear.

I loved the quality of the dress.
I wore this to a rehearsal dinner. It was comfortable with unique details. It fit nicely. I sized down for the sleeves. The dress was slimming. I received many compliments. I would love to own this dress!

Blue that POPPED!!
Pros- Loose fitting, great color, loved the sleeves and the Vneck...was not to low but still sexy Cons- If you have a larger butt and smaller waste this dress gives you NO shape.

The 8 was a little snug around the chest so I went with the 10 for a little more room.

Beautiful color and fabric
Lovely dress! The color, fabric and sleeve detail and are great, the neckline is shows a little skin but is still good for a family function. Unfortunately it didn't work for me (tried it as part of my unlimited subscription). It will looking best on athletic builds and smaller chested women, and will probably run large for women built that way. For hourglass figures, eg large chest (I'm actually a 30DD+, wish RTR had the ability to put our real bra size in our profiles) with a small waist, it is doesn't show off the waist - we'll just have to envy the women who can wear this well! ;-)

Beautiful color and sophisticated fit
I rented this for a work happy hour and received endless compliments on the color and fit. Good for work events because it's not too low cut or short. Would also be a good Spring wedding dress. LOVED it!

Gorgeous, incredible fit, versatile from casual-->cocktail.
This photo doesn't capture how beautifully this dress is cut. It's roomy enough to be comfortable but accentuates waist and legs and just falls perfectly. The color is stunning. I wore it for work and to a cocktail event after work with dressed-up shoes and jewelry. High-quality, comfy, and felt great. Would definitely rent again!

Photos can't do the vibrant blue of this dress justice!
This sassy shift was perfect for a slightly chilly outdoor spring wedding. The slight weightiness of the fabric, along with the sleeves allowed me to stay warm without having to add a jacket. I typically wear a 0 but had to use the back-up size 2 I'd ordered to accommodate my broader shoulders.

Great dress! I would wear this again.
Great dress for a great occasion. The fit was great and true to size, the length was nice and not too short and the fabric was very high class and comfortable. I received many compliments and had fun and felt comfortable in it all night. I am less than a year postpartum and it made me feel thin and like a had a figure again. All I needed was a good pair of Spanx!

This dress was perfect. It's lined, the sleeves are awesome, the length was perfect. I was a size four in a Kate Spade dress and this seemed to fit similarly.

Arrived on time and in great condition.
I absolutely love this dress and the color is gorgeous! It hangs nicely and the open arms and give it a very slow you feeling. I wore at your work and then to a party afterwards and received two compliments all day long. The blue is even brighter in person. It runs a tad bit big so I would size down as a back up size. I want to buy this dress!

Great dress and fits just right! Wore this for a bridal shower.
I am 6 ft tall and the length was perfect! I just wish it was a little longer on the arms, but it still fit great.

Receiving many compliments, the color was fabulous with my dark hair/eyes and light skin tone.
It was a good fit although a bit snug in the chest . It showed just enough pizazz for a work event - the launch of our company. Big hit, received many compliments

Fantastic fit, flattering & this is a dress that is versatile and just plain beautiful. I paired with a statement necklace and nude strappy pumps for a late day first communion. I'd war this again!

Nice fabric, not my favorite fit
Lovely blue and nice, heavy fabric. Sleeves are fun. I found it too narrow in the hips, so kept riding up. Nice dress, but won't be on my list to rent again.

Possibly the best dress I've ever worn!
I rented this for a trip to Europe and it didn't arrive in time... terrible planning on my part! When I got home, I thought, I'll just hang on to it longer. I had a trip to St. Louis for Mother's Day weekend soon. I wore this to the theater with my daughter. I even had random women complimenting me. This has always been my best color. The fit it fabulous for less leg and less cleavage... I was with my daughter! Ha. I actually still have it because I'm debating on buying, the convenience of unlimited. Besides, my boyfriend only saw pictures and they don't do it justice! Love love love it!

Vibrant color
Love the color and the tulip-shaped sleeves. It was a great length for me. The top part of the dress was a bit tight on me, while the waist was big and the hips were just right. Worn with a thin scarf and long pendant necklace, these helped balance the shifts in fit down my torso.

Did not wear
I rented this for a graduation but was not able to wear it because it was way too small in the bust. I would have been happy to wear the dress and it was a great color but unfortunately was just too small. 12 may have fit.

The color is amazing. I love that it is a shift dress so it is very flattering. So many compliments!
The size 4 was not too tight so I could dance all night and even with my arms up the dress is not too short and I could move easily in it. The sleeves give it a 70s flare that many people noticed. Overall a great dress.

Great Color, stylish but comfy.
Was a great for a really long day with a ton of meetings and a lot of running around. Even fell asleep on my office couch, got up and looked fresh as a daisy. I was really tempted to buy it, but I have at least one too many blue dresses.

Beautiful color!
Loved this dress! It runs a little on the large size, if I owned it that wouldn't be any problem one trip to the tailor couldn't fix though. I had friends at work tell me I should ALWAYS wear this color-- it was really vibrant and fun.

I wore this on my birthday to a fancy dinner and a party and I felt like a model!
This dress was so fun. It fits loosely, and the 2 probably fit a little bit better but because I wanted to wear heels I chose the 4 so it wouldn't look so short. I LOVED this dress - the color and the fit made me feel special, and I felt like a model wearing it. Lots of compliments. Rent for something fun!
