So soft and comfortable!

I would say this dress runs true to size across the shoulders but is Big everywhere else. This would be a good maternity dress;) The fabric is warm, soft and of high quality so the unstructured loose fit did not bother me, it was a pleasure to wear! Oh! And pockets!!! I love this dress and wish it were mine!

The hand stitching is amazing... it's blue and black with hand embroidered metallic flowers

Sleeves were tight ( not the kind you pull up) and dress was baggy but still looked so cute and I loved the length and the pockets. SUPER warm for a cold winter getaway.

Super comfy!

Absolutely gorgeous dress! The detail is stunning, a perfect dress with boots. The dress is slightly oversized which I know is the look but it does flare out...I would try sizing down next time.

Sweater dress with pockets!

My only concern with this dress is that The fit/cut across the shoulder felt a little tight. Lifting my arms up felt restricted but the dress in all other areas was fine. The material was thick and warm and did not feel itchy against my skin as I thought it would. The detail/pattern on the front is subtle but pretty. Paired with tights and boots for a nice winter look.

Pretty design with really narrow sleeves

I wore it to a work holiday party and received a number of compliments. The sleeves were very narrow, a bit restrictive of movement in the shoulder and it was very difficult to even push up the sleeves when washing my hands. I felt like a bigger size would have provided a more comfortable fit but a baggier/less flattering appearance-pick your poison.

Fun sweater dress

The dress is a prety sweater dreas with a boxy cut. It runs a bit large, but sleeves are fitted. This fit me perfectly! Its a little on the short side, so I paired with black tights. Perfect winter party dress!

Really short for a tall person

The dress fit great but was really short on me (im 5 10). Reviewers are all saying it runs big but be cautious if your tall.

Super comfortable sweater dress

I wear an 8/10 in everyday clothes. This sweater dress fit perfectly. It was slightly more fitted around the chest area and relaxed from the waist down.

Roasted all night

This dress is very thick and heavy perfect for a cold temp event. I wore it inside and roasted. If fits perfect and the most flattering sweater dress I've ever worn, I just chose the wrong occasion to wear it

Love this "dress"!

I wore this to Christmas Eve brunch & a gift exchange & I plan on wearing it to work tomorrow. I'm 5'7" so it was a little too short to wear as an actual dress but I thought it looked cute with leggings & flats anyway. I walked around all day with my hands in my pockets. It's definitely a heavier-weight fabric as others have mentioned but it was perfect for a 50-degree day - no coat required!

Wore multiple times

Comfy casual but still has fun feel/flare plus has pockets so how could you go wrong?! Has gold tint. It is on the shorter side and thought twice about wearing it to work but I did anyway with opaque tights but I am on the shorter side so long legs beware.

It has pockets !

Standard sweater type dress. Nice subtle gold detail on front. Loved the pockets. I can imagine this being short, but for me it was perfect!

Fun for work without feeling cutesy

This hit a little short so I wore it with black tights so it would work in a slightly conservative office setting. As other reviewers mention, the sleeves are tight - not the kind you can push up, even a little. And it is WARM which is good for cold days or cold offices. Will wear a second time before sending back and will rent again.

Loved it, wore it multiple times.

This sweater dress is really good quality. I got so many compliments. I would have kept it, but it was too expensive.

Runs very small in shoulders and length

After reading the reviews about how large this dress is, I ordered a 34 thinking that as someone who is usually between a 2 and 4, the 4 should fit, and even if its a little big, it's a sweater dress and will look good. If you are tall or have any width in your shoulders, size up! I'm 5'9, slim and have somewhat broad shoulders. The 34 wasn't long enough to cover my bum, the shoulders were SO tight, and the sleeves ended about four inches above my wrists. This dress was so small, I wondered if RTR got petites and didn't include that in the listing, or maybe washed and shrunk the dress? Other than the sizing issue, the color and design were beautiful and the material was thick and cozy. Wish I could have worn it, and will rent again in a larger size.

Narrow shoulders!

If you are a straight and narrow body, this will probably fit but hourglass and athletic types be warned: there is no stretch and the shoulders are so tight I couldn't get it on.

really thick, quite short

The sweater-style knit is super thick and kind of bulky. I'm 5'6" (which isn't super tall) and the hem hit very high on my leg. I can see this being fine if worn with leggings, but it would need a thin slip underneath to lie smoothly, and then you're dealing with a whole extra layer that might add more bulk. I love the look of it on the model, but this piece didn't make it in time for my vacation packing, so I never got to wear it anyway.

Cute dress and I included measurements!

Was too heavy for the weather to wear this dress, plus it was way too short and was not work appropriate. But the design really was beautiful and the overall details of the dress were high quality. PROS: Great design, pockets, CONS: Too short was more like a shirt than a dress. Rental Condition: Very Good Fabric: Heavy weight Comfort: Boxy & roomy Season(s): Winter Special Undergarments Required: Standard Surprises: Would I rent it again? Yes, maybe in winter Approximate Measurements Lying Flat Bust: 18" Waist: 19" Hips: 19" Front Length: 31" Back Length: 31"
