Great dress for photos!

I wore this dress to a press event. It was a perfect dress for work and it looked great on camera. Fit true to size. I love the color! Bright and beautiful!

Loved the dress overall, the color is gorgeous

Cons: the slit up the middle comes up pretty high, and the bottom is pretty tight, making it challenging to get in and out of cars, and up the stairs. Pros: Color, overall fit

Body con with a roomy feel!

This dress was great! It showed off my figure nicely with the bodycon, but it wasn't difficult to sit in or move in at all. I felt comfortable all night! Only thing to pay attention to was the slit in front- it comes up relatively high, but as I was at a dinner, I covered it with a napkin when seated so I didn't have to worry.

Elegant but too revealing for professional setting.

I love this dress but unfortunately couldn't wear it to work because it showed too much shoulder. It runs slightly small so be prepared to not wear a bra and keep your tummy sucked in and posture perfect while wearing it. The fabric doesn't have a lot of stretch but the cut is very slimming. It would be perfect for an evening cocktail party.

Amazing color! Material was very comfortable all day with no wrinkles

Shoulders cut in quite a bit but I didn't want to go larger because it would've been too lose in the chest

Loved this dress. Will rent again. Don't want to send back!

Such a pretty deep purple and great to show off shoulders and figure. Very comfortable to wear to work. I'm glad I sized up to 8 after reading other reviews! Suggest the same. Regular bra was fine but racerback is probably best.

I'm a size 6 or size 4 and this dress ran way too small. I couldn't even zip up the back.

RTR Team Review

I am obsessed with this LIKELY dress. The cut is perfect and so flattering. I am a size 4/6 and I am wearing a size 6 in the photo. The dress does run a little small so I recommend sizing up to give you more comfort. The dress is tight at my waist and fitted throughout my midsection and hips. Curvier women should size up for full hips. The fabric has some stretch. The dress is great for any cup size. I am a 34D and felt comfortable in the dress. A standard bra can be worn with this dress. I am 5’9” and the dress was knee length on me. The dress is perfect for any party! Pair with black heels and big earrings.

Tight and high!

Dress was too fitted-it compressed more than it hugged the curves. The slit in the front went up too high to be appropriate. Since the dress was so fitted, the base flared out slightly at the slit, which made it look even less flattering. I was very disappointed as I was looking forward to wearing this dress. On a positive, the material of the dress was quality and would wear well had the dress been a better fit.

Great color with a sexy slit.

This dress was great until the slit started to split deeper and deeper as the night went on. But the end of the evening I was showing much more than I intended on.

Wide and the bottom tight at the top.

The color of this dress is a vibrant purple and the length is good. I am tall and it hit the knee. I am also curvy, with a full bottom. I was optimistic about the dress when I pulled it on and it cleared my backside. Unfortunately, this dress is cut for a pear shape ( L bottom/M top) as I could not even come close to zipping it up. I was about 2 inches to small for my 38 D bust. So unless you are a A/B cup gal I would pass on this one. If you have a flat chest and a wide bottom, this will likely work well for you.

ATTENTION GETTER

I had to wear a belt for work reasons but this dress looks amazing on. It fits like a glove, and by that I mean it fits like second skin. The dress runs small but the material is forgiving. The zipper was a challenge. I literally had to hunt someone down to help me get it zipped and I couldn't tell if it was because the dress was tight or because the zipper was just complicated. the slit is awesome and practical otherwise you might not be able to walk. ALSO, if you are large chested like me... I literally had to squish them in from the sides because the arm opening scoops in.

Perfect sleek fit and comfortable. This dress can make you feel like a million bucks!

It was snug in a 2. I'm usually between 2-4. I think this dress would have been for me a little more comfortable in a 4. The slit goes a little higher than expected, so make sure it's the right event!

Professional yet flattering!

Perfect for a formal work-related event. I loved the high neck, since I had just had surgery on my lower neck and this covered my scar. Great fit overall.

Curve hugging with stretch.

Loved this dress. I received it with a popped seam in the front slit, so I couldn't wear it but when I tried it on, it was fabulous. The mock turtle neck is a nice touch, I wore this in 84 degree weather even with the turtle neck as I felt the straps managed to warm weather it up a bit. there is a little bit of limited mobility in this dress. When you sit, the neck tends to pull and it can be a little constricting.

This was rented to wear to a young professionals night out at a museum in Philadelphia.

Depending on the brand, I go back and forth from 0 to 2. I needed the 2 in this dress. So slimming, cut beautifully, LOVED the color. A very true purple shade. And my must for all dresses: easy to move in and easy to wear a supportive bra underneath (racer back recommended). I got so many compliments! Wore it with black patent heels, gold tassel earrings, and a really cute Coach bangle.

The fit, the color, the style- flawless

This dress runs about a size small, but once you size up it is perfection! The fabric color is even more beautiful in person and fits like a glove. It's also super comfortable (and conservative with a hint of sass with that front slit!). Will probably buy this one!

I didn't end up wearing this to my conservative work interview - BUT WISH I DID!

Thick fabric is very stretchy and form fitting - VERY flattering for any body... I just misjudged how much weight I've gained and should have ordered the 12 instead of the size 10. I could have made it work, despite being too tight. Just decided to play it safe and wore something else to the work interview. Absolutely work appropriate, yet at the same time - such a fashion forward color that will catch people's eye and make you remembered!!

Elegant dress, pretty color

I didn't end up wearing this dress because the front slit had clearly ripped previously and I was afraid of a wardrobe malfunction at my event. That said, the fit created a nice long line for my body type (short legs, long torso) and the color was really pretty. I would consider wearing for a work presentation or something similar in the future.

Compliments but uncomfortable fit.

While this dress fit my shape fairly well, the neck portion was too tight and it was almost impossibly to zip myself. Had it been a size larger I would have had less issues.

Gorgeous color and neckline!

Fit: Slim/form fitting - but not a traditional "bodycon." Very comfortable and easy to walk around/dance in. I was somewhat concerned about the comfort around the neckline, but didn't even notice it after I put it on. Pros: This color and cut are absolutely gorgeous. The color is essentially the ultra-violet Pantone color, and the cut it isn't too revealing. Overall it was perfect from my work holiday party. I felt completely comfortable, and like I looked great without being too revealing. I loved being able to show off my shoulders and arms without being inappropriate (side note: made my bootie look FAAAABULOUS). Cons: I could have sized down. I'm typically a 4-6 range and sized up to a 6-8. I wore the 6, but felt it may have fit better in a smaller size. I've rented a LIKELY dress before and the 8 fit perfectly in that instance so I went the safe route. I have a larger chest, but an athletic build otherwise.

Great dress for work or play!

Super cute, great fit color and style! Loved it but it was super tight. I got a 2 because the 4 wasn't available. I wore it to work but it would be a good dress for dinner and drinks too. The slit in the front is what makes this dress!

Runs very small

I usually wear a size 10, but saw in other reviews that this dress runs small so ordered a 10 and 12. Both sizes were too small-- I probably could have worn the 12, but it wouldn't have been comfortable!!

I rented this dress for a formal work event.

This dress was actually my backup but I'm so glad I chose it! The original dress I rented was beautiful as well but the slit from the wrap style of the dress went up slightly too high for a work event. This purple dress was a gorgeous color and fit like a glove. It does run slightly small so it may be best to order up a size. The sleeveless style and slit in the front let me feel sexy while the knee length and small mock turtle neck were perfect for my formal work event. I'm 5'8" and approximately 130lb.

Beautiful color, classic but sexy shape.

Other reviews said it runs small so I sized up which was a good decision. I usually wear a 4 but I have hips so I went with the 6 and it was perfect.

Beautiful but order a size up

I ordered this for my 16 year old cousin who is usually a size 10. She loved the dress but couldn't zip it up. She is busty and the dress has very little give. There was no 12 available so we were out of luck.

Lots of dancing in a dress that kept up with me!

I really liked this dress because of its unique cut -- the high neckline and front slit combine to create a sophisticated look. It did fit snugly, so I definitely suggest pantyhose to smooth out your look. I added a slim black belt to highlight my waist and finished with black heels. Lovely dress in a beautiful color -- I would wear this again!

I loved it when I first put it in but couldn’t wait to take off by the end of the night. Runs small.

I I wore this for my husband’s class reunion. I normally wear a 6 but in this I wore an 8 and it was still a little tight. I had to wear a strapless bra because a regular bra showed on the sides. It looked great and I would wear again but I think I would have to go up another size.

Great color but tight fit

I am 5'4, about 175 and this would not zip up even with a corset body shaper on, which sucked because the color and fabric were beautiful. I hated the neck however, it was too tight, like suffocating tight. Overall, I would rent again, when I lose weight just to see if the fit worked better, just because it was a beautiful dress.

Too tight.

I rented this for an event where the guests were supposed to wear purple. There were no back up sizes up or down but I ALWAYS fit a size 6 so I figured I would be okay. It was too small/tight. I still wore it but would have preferred the 8.

Runs very small

I'm typically a 2 - 4 so I sized up based on the other reviews but the size 4 was still tight. If I had gone up another size the top would have been loose and the bottom may have fit. Won't rent this dress again.

Great Work Dress

This dress is great for a formal work place, I've rented it in both blue and burgundy and always get SO many compliments. If you have curves definitely size up as this piece is very fitted. I normally wear a size 4 but the 6 hugged all of my curves perfectly. Will definitely rent again!
