Too baggy to wear for me

The dress runs very large. I have a long torso and the waist of the dress still fell closer to my hips. I would give it a shot in 2 dress sizes smaller than what you wear normally. Also - it definitely is too bright and glamorous for everyday. More of a special occasion dress.

Bright, comfortable, stylish

I really liked this dress. Some reviews said it runs big but I actually got the size 8 and thought it fit fine even though I usually wear a 4 or 6. The color is unique and flattering - an orangish-red. I got a couple compliments wearing it today at work.

Subtly sexy

Slit looks demure in photos but really opens up when you walk. Clingy fabric but not too tight

Loved it, but need to size up

Only size 2 was available so I went for it because I'm usually between sizes 2 and 4. This dress was so small I couldn't even zip it up more than half way. It's very well made and the cutting is sleek. I hope to try this in a 6.

Tight waist band, loose everywhere else

I rented for a winetasting day but was unable to wear - the waist band was very tight despite the rest of the dress fitting fine. Slit for leg is high yet classy, design is classic yet trendy. However it isn't a sexy fit but don't size down to make it tighter because the waist band (non-stretchable) will prevent it.

So many compliments

This dress made me feel amazing! I received so many compliments. The slit is high but looks fantastic on and the flow hid the tummy area well. Love it! Don't know why I can't put 5 stars.

I loved this dress! The red orange color is stunning and I got dozens of compliments at the trade show where I wore it. This is comfortable to wear all day and it looks classy yet turns heads. Rent it!

The color!

Loved the color, the slit, and the fit of the skirt. Unfortunately the top was too big on my average length torso. This would work on taller less curvy girls.

Loved everything about this one.

Amazing dress. So versatile in look. Very comfortable. Has a very high slit in front. The color is amazing. One of my favorite rentals. Best for a tall girl.

Great for a friends birthday dinner!

The reviews said it ran true to size, but the model definitely has on at least two sizes larger. The dress fit well, but at my true size the split was always open. I have a short upper body so it was a little bunchier than I'd like around the waist. Photographs amazingly! If you want to look like the model, get two sizes up.

Unflattering fit didn't wear it

Pretty color and interesting cut but I couldn't figure out how to make this work. Front has a wrap type look but underneath layer creates a ridge in the top layer. Hips showed every bump and wasn't flattering enough to wear. Unfortunately returned it unworn.

Great dress and perfect for 5'4

Great fit. I'm usually a 0 or 2 and this fit me great. The slit is high but when ur standing it stays closed enough to wear in daytime. Sitting makes it very sexy! Haha. Very nice overall. Looks fantastic on.

The dress was great although being 6 foot tall the slit can be a bit high when walking

Cut nicely

I received several compliments wearing this dress. The cut is very nice and while simple, it's unique. Yes, the slit on the side can come up a bit high but not too high for work in my opinion. The only adjustment I would have made to the sizing is at the waist band. If it could've been just a half inch smaller it would've been absolutely perfect.

No clue why the dress is so tight, bunch, and revealing while the photo shows a modest side slit. Did not wear. Very disappointed

Super Sexy

Loved this dress however a couple of quirks. Getting in and out of this dress was a bit of a challenge because of the zippers. Waited to do my hair and makeup till after I was dressed due to it having to go over my head. You also have to get used the feeling like the dress is twisted around your waist. The fit was perfect and the dress was very comfortable despite the small little quirks. Would have loved to purchase this dress but price is a little high at over 1k. Overall incredible super sexy little dress.

The twist of the dress that looks so good on the model, had a sloppy look on me especially with my shorter torso.

Unassuming, but watch out for the slit!

Slit is much higher than you think - be careful, haha. The waistline is a little high, so it made my bottom appear a little bigger / longer. Good seemingly conservative option.

Basic sheath with a twist

Beautiful color. Runs very large, so size down. I didn't realize the the slit in the front is due to the fact that the bottom half is actually a wrap dress. This makes it look a bit more casual in my opinion. Also, due to the twisting, it can look a bit like the dress has just spun around a bit. Not terribly flattering.

Wanted to wear for date night but didn't work

This dress could be amazing but the waist fit really weird and tight on me while the dress fit normally or even kind of big elsewhere. As someone with a small-ish waist and hourglass figure, this is not a problem I have very often so the fit might be off for shorter and/or short-waisted girls. Just didn't fit me or look like the model *at all.*

Gorgeous, unusual design.

Beautiful dress, lovely coral color. I was hoping to wear this to a work-to-evening dinner out. What you don't see in this picture is the slit for the dress is dramatic, and on me, was centered in the front, making it way to suggestive for work. It runs a little small, I normally wear a 2 in RTR dresses, I'd size up.

I couldn't wear this to work or any event. It was skin tight!

Unless you want to wear a skin-tight dress, this runs really small! The slit opened completely when I sat down as well, so that would have been an interesting adventure.

Sexy for night out, not good for work

This one looks great in other customer photos, but his dress didn't fit me at all. I'm a solid 4 but I couldn't zip this up! And even if that would have worked, the slit was super high. Not good for work but probably great for a night out (if you can zip it up!).

Bootylicious and sexier than expected

Gorgeously constructed but I don't love it. I rented it originally for work but it ended up being way sexier than I thought, the slit goes all the way up and when you sit it's like BAM, legs, and .. you better be wearing undies with this is all I'm saying. Also the model is built way differently than I am and this dress was allllll about my butt. In the front, it laid flat on my chest (don't know how they got it to be all cool looking on the model) and then bunched around my waist. Other than that it fit true to size and the color is a super saturated salmon which is SO PRETTY. I wore it with silver and black jewelry.

Not work appropriate - but awesome dress!

I rented for a work event. The construction of the dress is really remarkable. It didn't drape in as interesting a way as it does on the model. For the price, it's not the "wow" look that I would expect - glad it was an unlimited rental. The dress has a wrap skirt that comes up REALLY HIGH when you sit down. I was strategically placing napkins and clutches over my lap every time I sat down all night. It goes past "short" to "inappropriate"... but only when sitting. As a result, ended up wearing it for a night out instead of for work. Works really well for tall women.

RTR Team Review

The cut of this dress is so unique! My usual dress size is a four and I am wearing a IT40 which is equivalent to a four in US size. This dress does fit true to size. The dress is fitted in the midsection, waist and hips. I recommend curvier women going a size up for their backup size. Even though it was fitted I was very comfortable because the fabric had a lot of stretch to it. This dress would be great for any cup size. I am a 36D and I was very comfortable. This dress can be worn with a standard bra. I am 5’9’ and this dress was knee length to tea length on me. This dress would be perfect for work or for a night out. Pair with black heels and big earrings.

Adore!!

This dress is amazing!! It looks so beautiful on with a little sexiness in the split up the thigh. I also found it very comfortable and easy to wear - I didn't need spanx, I didn't feel like I needed to suck-in my tummy, the length was right below the knee, I didn't need to wear a special bra with it - it was all perfect. I wish I could own this dress
