Classic-yet-modern structured style. Very flattering!
Just the right amount of stretch while still being totally appropriate for a work event. The structured panel at the waist makes the dress very flattering. Can be worn with a jacket or without. Wish I could buy this dress!

Conservative and stylish dress
This dress was very comfortable and it would have been great for my event. Unfortunatley, the dress was damaged in a very noticeable spot. The customer service team was great and although I didnt have time to get another rental they did offer me a credit toward another rental in the future. The dress runs true to size and the fabric does have some stretch. The only negative is that it is a bit long, and hit below the knee.

Pretty conservative dress
I got the 6 and 8 and both fit fine, the dress has a little stretch, but I wore the 8 since it was a little more comfy, wore this to a Mother's Day dinner and it turned out great.

Flattering and elegant dress
I rented this dress through Unlimited to wear to work. This dress earned compliments all day long. Almost everyone I met with complimented this dress. It is understated, but is fit and cut so well as to be really impressive. My bust is 36D and it was initially tight in this area, but that wasn't necessarily a bad thing. I definitely recommend this dress. It is also suitable to a work environment.

I so badly wanted to love this
It looks so sophisticated in the pictures, but it's really unflattering, at least if you have any sort of midsection or if you're short. I am 5'2" and it went all the way to mid calf.

Perfect special work event or everyday work.
Worse this for my Open House at work. Fits well! Arm holes were just a little tight. Fit like a glove otherwise!! Very flattering especially for those of us with a little tummy.

Great Power Suit for work. Gave me extra confidence going into meeting with customer.
I normally wear a size 10. The size 10 was a little tight in the chest and hip area and since I was going to be sitting down alot in the dress, I wanted to be more comfortable so I wore the size 12.

Work appropriate but didn't wow
I liked the way this fit and felt - spent about 15 hours in it while working out annual convention (walking a ton, sitting, standing, etc). Later when I looked back at the pictures, I didn't think it did much for my curves. Seemed a bit frumpy in the pics.

Perfect for a daytime work function!
This is a really flattering dress, especially if you have a bit of a tummy. The fabric and fit is both comfortable for all day wear, while looking very smart. I noticed minimal wrinkling etc. after a day of sitting in various conference rooms.

n/a
Rented this for work but it just didn't work for me. The waist didn't hit me right, and it ran a bit too small to feel comfortable for me to wear all day. Perhaps for shorter women or those who are not long-waisted it would be wonderful. The fabric and styling all seemed top notch. Too bad it didn't work for me.

Elegant, professional dress
Classic peplum silhouette. It's a bit tight across the ribcage. Hits right below my knee. Great for dressy work outfit.

Great experience
Beautiful dress! I wore it for a business award luncheon with the Kate Spade Hepburn necklace (twisted it because I liked the look better than letting it lay flat) & got endless compliments. Although I wear a 6 in "normal" clothes, I find that with high end or European designers, I can fit into a 6 but an 8 is more comfortable.

Stunning; extremely tasteful but very flattering
This dress is gorgeous and feels super expensive when on. The quality of tailoring and cut are far more evident in person than in the online pictures. Would be fabulous for an afternoon wedding or workplace event. Very flattering and conveys an understated, sophisticated sexiness.

Love this unique take on the peplum!
I loved the fit of this dress, it was very comfortable!! I felt so chic and sophisticated the entire time I had it on. It did seem to hit me a little long length wise, but that could easily be fixed with a bit of hem tape. The white piping of this dress is a very flattering attribute. This is a great dress all around and accentuates your body in all the right areas.

Would never have picked this for myself...but what a pleasant surprise!
I rented a completely different dress that became unavailable, so the stylists at RTR chose this as a replacement. When I first saw it, I was horrified (I avoid peplum like the plague). But then I tried it on and was amazed at how great it looked on me! I wore it to a work event and then didn't even change before meeting friends out because I felt so good in it. And it got tons of compliments too. One woman even had me unzip the back enough for her to make a note of the designer! This is a very slimming, flattering dress.

Fantastic work event dress!
This dress looked and felt fantastic! I'm tall and it hit just at knee level so I suspect that it would be long on most shorter people but for me, to find a sheath dress that is actually long enough was great!

Loved it!
I wore it to a business luncheon and needed to look professional yet pretty. This fit the bill perfectly- a great daytime dress. The fit is a bit snug in the bust area. I'm 5:9", 145 lb and a c cup. It was a bit tighter across the chest that i wanted, but the dress had some stretch in it, so it was fine. I would definitely order it again.

I loved it. I rented it for a work cocktail event, and it was perfect - flattering & stylish
The dress has a nice weight to it, so it's very flattering (esp. with the peplum.) I wore it to a fashion work event, and felt totally comfortable, appropriate, and stylish. Also got a ton of compliments from some pretty picky people.

Great dress, many compliments, super comfortable and form -fitting in all the right places
I wore this dress to a business function. Being 5'10, it was the perfect length. I ordered the 8 and the 6. The 6 was a much better fit. This dress is meant to be fitted. If it is loose, it errs on the side of being a bit dowdy and boring, When it fits your form, it is very flattering and comfortable for an all-day business function as well. The fabric is thick enough that it hugs your curves without needing to wear spanx!

This dress was absolutely gorgeous! It is a well made dress with beautiful detail and fabric.
The fit was true to size and flattered my hour glass shape. I wore this dress as a guest panelist for a work function and felt so confident and appropriately dressed for the occasion. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this dress!

Ideal dress for work or a business formal event!
I am in the long process of renovating a house so almost all of my stuff is in storage. I was getting tired of wearing the same old same old to work every day and thought that I would spice it up with another fabulous rent the runway dress. I rented this one and another and one, which were both definitely good choices! This dress was awesome! Fashionable, chic and appropriate for a formal work environment! This dress is long enough to come to the knee and just modest enough to wear to work in a professional office setting. Runs true to size, has a little bit of give. Comfortable! I highly recommend this dress and my only regret is not taking a picture in it!

I wore this dress to a sorority brunch, it was perfect for the occasion but had the flare I needed.
Fit perfectly on my chest, however if you have a larger bust size, I suggest sizing up.

This dress is beautifully constructed but awkward on. The neckline was uncomfortably high and the dress a bit too long overall for my barely petite frame.

Held me over!
I wore this dress for Easter- church, brunch, party. It was very comfortable and chic. I am 5'3" and the skirt fell just below my knew with a pencil-skirt type fit (snug) which I liked. I am self conscience about my middle and the high waistline and peplum did the trick and I felt great. The weight was lighter than I thought it would be - a plus, I think for spring and summer.

Very well made dress.
I really liked this dress but it definitely ran small. The 6 was very snug and doesn't give at all. It was also longer than I expected but looked fine with tall heels. The quality is impeccable. If I had sized up I think it would have been a 5 star.

Dress is classy and beautiful!
I was a little nervous to rent this dress for a daytime wedding that I was attending because everyone else on here said that they had worn it to work events in the reviews. I am so glad that I did rent it! It is gorgeous and totally appropriate for a wedding. It's constructed of quality material and looks expensive. I think I received more compliments on this dress than I've ever received. Even the concierge at the hotel I was staying at asked where I got my dress. RTR, I think you have a lot of business coming your way:) I ordered the size 6 and would've ordered the 8 as backup if it had been available, but the 6 fit perfectly. There's a little stretch to it so it is really comfortable and easy to wear. I was lucky to get this dress in time to also wear it to a work function(hey, just trying to fit in with the other girls!:) ), and I felt like it was appropriate for that as well. This is a very versatile dress, and I would definitely recommend renting it if you have the chance. It's going to be very hard to send it back tomorrow! Also, I wanted to mention that this is my first experience with RTR, and the customer service and the whole process was just amazing. My closet is going to start to feel neglected because I'm renting for everything from now on!

Stunning dress.
This was my first RTR experience and I had no idea what to expect. The minute I opened the box, I fell in love with this dress. Beautiful fabric (with just enough stretch to be comfortable but thick enough not to show any bulges or bumps), flattering silhouette, and unique design (I love the peplum). It fit me perfectly and was perfect for the occasion (luncheon). I loved wearing this dress so much, I didn't want to send it back!!!

Gorgeous dress. Thick fabric gives the dress a well-constructed and high quality feel. Wore it to a Mother's Day Brunch at a golf club. Did need to wear spanks underneath to give a nice, smooth look. Would definitely recommend as an alternative to a dress suit. Loved that I didn't have to hide my bra straps.

Beautiful, feminine and modern.
I dress ran true to size to on the small size. Wore dress 2 months after having a baby and the peplum waist was great for hiding excess baby rolls. I had to go up a size because my chest was so much bigger. But loved the dress and wish I owned it!
