Beware: very different from the photo or the description
Size worn: 38
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
This is a nice knit dress that is very different from the RTR photo. I attached a picture of mine for a better depiction of the color. As you can see, the color is much darker in person.
As stated earlier, it is a shift dress that is not so much form-fitting (feels more like a slouchy knit), so if you don't have a very flattering body, it can look shapeless. In addition, I would call the length "knee-length" rather than "mid-thigh." I am a little over 5' 4", so I think I have the standard height, but it was by no means mid-thigh.
Because of the shape and length of the dress, I looked somewhat short and stout when I wore the dress as is, so I added a belt as you can see from the picture, and it worked very nicely. I loved wearing it for a casual date and a tennis game.
Overall, I would recommend this dress but keep in mind that the dress differs quite a bit from the photo/description.
Also, RTR customer service was awesome.
