Loved this dress for any sort of work or more conservative event! It's a beautiful color and an easy fit. I didn't need to wear a bra with the dress because of the structure. Highly recommend for anytime you need to be dressed up, but casual, and look your best!

Talk about assertive! This sheath is definitely a statement - gorgeous purple color, fitted, but with a conservative neckline and length. I felt very first-lady! Felt pretty true to size, but was a little snug in the hips - would recommend sizing up if you are bigger on bottom!

Fits very tight in the bust, if you are big there, go up a size.

Pretty dress for winter time but not for me
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small

The dress was really hard to zip up (most of my rentals have been size 10) and was completely unflattering in the stomach area. Moreover, it was a thick wool that would not have suited my occaision at all. The color is beautiful though, just wish it was a little less tight in the stomach area and less itchy.

This dress was spectacular. The knit fabric was LOVELY and the color was outstanding. One of the dresses I've rented at RTR that I just hated to return, and found myself browsing the internet later to find if I could afford it retail. You won't regret renting this outstanding number. Even with the modest neckline, the fit of the dress was incredibly sexy.

The color was stunning! I got compliments all night
Size worn: 12

The dress looked great and was super comfortable. The color is the biggest awesomeness of this dress for me. I wore it for a business mixer. The details may fray on this dress over time, so I was a little worried but it was a non-issue. I never know if I'm a 10 or a 12 pending the designer, in this case, I'm guessing the 10 would have been fine too based on the make.
