Nice dress for work

The dress is a nice fit, not too baggy. It kind of has a "mod" vibe, but I liked it. Great length for work, and nice sleeves. The fabric wasn't itchy or hot (and I wore this to work in LA in April) and you can very easily dress it up or down with accessories. I enjoyed renting it.

Sleek and Modern

Fit was fantastic. This has been my favorite dress that I have rented this far. Wish it could be a staple in my closet.

Very suitable for an important work event.

Hit all the right notes for a work event. Good arm coverage. Not too tight. I wore a slip because the wool was slightly itchy. It would be good for colder weather with tights.

Fun dress for work!

This is a great dress! The cut and fit are impeccable. It is a tiny bit too short -- I wore it with tights to get away with it at work. I paired it with camel peep toe booties for a bridal shower. Super cute.

Great quality and style for corporate setting

good for cool early spring day. Quality of material meant dress was well structured and hung well- pleats at front a nice style feature. Roomy on waist but made for a comfortable, relaxed fit.

I want to buy it.

Perfect for work. Looks classic, feels professional but feminine as well. Only thing is it's a little warm for the summer and fabric is a little itchy for walking around in.

Average, but comfortable and conservative

Not really wowed by this one. I feel like it was too big on top and not all that flattering for a pear shape like myself. The sleeve length was great, although a little sung.

Great dress!

I really liked this dress. I'm 5"9 and it was long enough for me to wear to work which is sometimes a struggle for me. It's overall a really nice dress. Runs a little large.

Classic, lovely, but not for petites

Heavy fabric, nicely tailored, perfect for a formal office. But was ridiculously long in the torso, and had to return unworn.

Really nice fabric and pleat detailing; nice leather detail at neck and flows well. Large on the top (and i'm an apple); definitely size down with this one.

Fine for work

European sizes are confusing, so it is understandable that RTR got this one wrong: it is EU size, but RTR used French sizes when converting it to US sizes. I rented a size 4 and got a European size 38 (normally a US size 8). So check the European size before you order.

I loved this dress!! The pleats and the fit were super flattering. I would size down next time. I will definitely be renting this again - it was a perfect work dress. I felt good in it all day.

Love this dress

I love this dress. It is made of a thick/heavy woven fabric which is very appropriate for winter/fall; it would be too heavy weight for summertime. It is very polished appearing and is very work appropriate. I will rent this again for sure.

Shapless Dress - Nothing Amazing

I rented this dress for work and was unfortunately pretty disappointed. The size 10 was way too big and the dress has no shape at all. I ended up pairing it with a belt to give me some shape. Also I expected the fabric to be of higher quality and heavier but unfortunately it was pretty thin.

Basic with Potential

This dress is not cut for women with hips. Tight through and unwearable while the top of the dress fit a little boxy.

Arms were insanely tight, couldn't wear

It fit everywhere except the arms, I could barely get it over my biceps. Otherwise it is a beautiful dress and I'm sad I couldn't wear it.

Minimal & high quality

Great for work if you have unlimited. Very Claire Underwood. I expected it to run small being a high-end Italian designer, so opted for the 38 rather than the 36. It was a tough too big, but as such had a nice drape, so no regrets.

Great dress for a conservative workplace!

I have muscular shoulders/arms, so the dress was fitted up top, but looser than I'd expected in the midsection/hips (I get that it's not supposed to be fitted, but it was still pretty loose). Unless you have thin arms, the sleeves won't billow out like they do on the model. My only complaint is that I found the fabric incredibly itchy -- I was dying to take it off by the end of the day.

Classy, conservative work dress.

It's a little boxy and very warm as it is wool. It hits right above the knee for a polished and not too short work look.

Best for athletic builds!

The dress is as beautiful as pictured. The material is beautiful, the pleats are very well constructed and the color is a deep midnight navy. Unfortunately, I had to return this dress because it didn't fit me quite right. The size 2 fit OK on top (though it's pretty boxy), but it was a little snug through the hips, which caused the top of the pleats to pull. The waist looked really big compared to the snug fit through the hips, so I just didn't think it was quite right. I ordered the 2 because the dress looked a little loose, but if I had gone with the 4 (so it would fit on the bottom) I think the top would have been too big. I am definitely a "pear" shape, though, so if you're a pretty similar top/bottom size, I would totally recommend this dress. I was really disappointed to have to return it!

Loved the pleats

I have wider hips, so I was a little worried the pleats wouldn't lay right, but they did, and the dress was so cute for work!

It was a workday, fairly uneventful.

The dress is of a nicely weighted fabric and a classy cut. It has a tendency to stick to tights, so I would recommend silkier hose or a slip. The shape is boxy, and as a result is forgiving in the midsection but comes across plain. I dressed it up with heavier jewelry than I would normally wear. I will choose this dress again for work.

Unflattering fit at the midsection and hips.

It is a beautiful dress with a very nice dark blue and a cool cut. Unfortunately, the dress looked very unflattering on me. The top part and the very bottom part fit, but the mid section was too loose and made my stomach look big and at the same time it was very snug at the hips. On my body, the dress looked like a big blue tube. The material is quite heavy, so this might be better for the winter.

Rented for a work event but did not end up wearing (too small)

The cut is interesting: it is very formal at the top, but slightly too short to stay formal on the legs (shows skin there). Also, it was fine for me on the bust area but two small at the skirt level (the folds "opened") and I fear that a bigger size would have been to big at the top...

Lovely thick fabric and unique skirt design

I loved the fit of the dress on the top but found the loose waist less flattering, so I cinched it with a belt. It's perfect for work on a fall day and the skirt pleats are very unique.

This dress is perfect for work on a tall girl.

Loved the pleats in the front, the length for work, and the sleeve length. The black trim around the neck also gives this dress just a hint of edgy, which I love. You won't regret getting this dress.

Elegant and simple classic.

I love this dress. It's wool so it's heavy, but has some stretch. A great classic look for business, but the pleats keep it from being severe. Looks and feels expensive. Would buy this if it weren't so expensive. LOL.

Lovely fabric but challenging cut

This dress has no shape to it, so while I expect women with smaller hips will want to stay true to size, women with larger hips might want to size up. I'm between a 4 and a 6 on bottom and the 6 fits me on the hips, but the middle section is a bit baggy which makes the fitted hips look weird. I expect if I sized up to get a more shift-like look it would be too big on top, so I think that's just how it's going to be if you have hips. It is still a beautiful dress though and looks okay -- I'm wearing it to work and feeling fine. That said it's not a very *exciting* dress, the pleating and neckline details are cute but they are very subtle. I probably won't rent this again.

I usually wear a size 6 but based on comments and previous experience I chose a 38 and the fit was great. With a glitzy necklace this was a standout work outfit. very comfortable, loved the knee length, very professional.

i liked this, but not enough to wear it. tight in the arms

my arms are not my strong point, so i love dresses with some sort of sleeve. these were a little tight.
