So comfortable!

Has some stretch and felt as comfortable as a jersey dress but so much more polished. Got so many compliments.

Classic & beautiful

This dress was a little big on me as I sized up. It's cut as so that it's fitted in the bust, accentuates the waist and then flares slightly. A great dress for my conservative office! I will rent again

Didn't work

Sleeves were too tight unfortunately. Pretty dress. Would have been very dressy for work.

Beautiful dress and color. But beware short girls!

I loved this dress and got a ton of compliments. Tag was still on as well. But it hit me in the perfect place and I'm 6 feet tall. Not sure about shorter than that. Great color though.

Nice!

Great color, perfect for work. Cuts a little low on the waist- not quite a drop waist but calling that out.

It was a quick whole outfit in one shot

Perfect fit, I'm very short so It did come down lower than in the photo. But over all the perfect dress

Tight on top

Actual color is more red-orange. Very tight around the shoulders. I couldn't raise my elbows above my head.

Beautiful dress

This is a beautiful red dress. Fit was just perfect for my usual size (2) although compared to some other brands I've worn, it did run a little on the smaller side. Rented it for work, and then didn't need it., so didn't wear this time but will probably rent again for the right occasion. Fabric is a nice weight and the dress hangs nicely.

Pretty in Red

This is a well made and flatteringly cut dress. Everything was perfect for the work conference I wore it to. The fabric is heavy and lays well. I probably could have gone down a size to get more waist definition, but it fit comfortably and I didn't need to wear Spanx or anything to conceal lumps and bumps. Would definitely rent again!

Too tight on ribs, couldn't even zip

This brand's sizing is generally very small. Couldn't wear the 2.

Pretty dress but a little long

I wore this dress to work and while it was pretty it was very long. Ran a little small though I find that with most LK Bennett

High quality dress

The material and cut are high quality. However, shoulder runs tight and not forgiving in the belly area even just a little bump. Should've sized up.

Striking color

Tons of compliments from my coworkers on the below the knee dress! Medium weight material was very forgiving.

Will rent again!

I felt amazing in this dress. Definitely a longer length and snug through the ribs/shoulders but not terribly uncomfortable. Good weight for the office and didn't wrinkle as much as I expected it to with sitting all day.

Color!

Beautiful quality as always with LK Bennett and color got a lot of comments! With the length and tailoring was still appropriate for work in my conservative hospital setting. That said, zipper was tight at chest but I'm a 34C and size 2. If anything is an issue with RTR it's the zipper and this style unfortunately took some finagling and a partner to get up.

A little tight in the chest which made it hard to raise my arms.

Absolutely beautiful and elegant dress!

I have a small waist and larger hip and this dress fit perfectly with someone with an hour glass. The dress was somewhat tight on my small chest so it would not be ideal for someone with a larger chest. I am also tall and this dress fit my length well! The red was gorgeous and the material was great quality. I got so many compliments and looked very professional and elegant.

Awesome tailoring

I really want to keep this dress. It is a little tight up top, but I think it actually is a good fit. The fabric and craftsmanship are impeccable. The seaming details really accentuate my curves, but it is still a striking and professional look.

Not for short girls!

This is definitely not for short girls! It fell below my knee and because it has nothing breaking up the front it looked even longer and made my torso seem too elongated. Sent it right back!

Great dress odd fit

The dress is lovely, well made quality construction and fabric. However, with my large bust and inability to wear bras due to a current back issue it was quite unflattering with where my bust well so to say. I sent it back without wearing it. I would recommend trying it if on the fence as it is a lovely dress just didn't work well for me.

Beautiful dress, good for conservative occasion

Dress is simple but fits well and is very pretty. I rented it for a formal work event and it worked perfectly. Conservative but not completely boring like most dark colored formal professional attire. I am 5'7. I have a hard time envisioning it on someone shorter than me as it is long.

Gorgeous Red Dress

Flattering - slims through the waist, and not to full on bottom. TTS.
