Runs very large

I'm a very consistent size 2 and this (while marked a 2) was enormous. Fit more like a six, and I couldn't wear. Loved the style though!

I loved this dress, but it was too big for me to wear.

This dress has a great cut. I liked the fabric and the design, but unfortunately it was too big for me to wear. I should have dozed down to a 2.

Cool and different work dress

This was a great rental for work that was appropriate for a traditional business environment but also had an interesting edgy flair in its construction and design. I loved that it had the appearance of a wrap dress without the inconvenience of a skirt that could blow open since shorter part of the skirt connects all the way across. The fit was relatively true to size but ran ever so slightly large, which I found to match the aesthetic of the design. I'd call it alty appropriate corporate. Loved it!

Super comfortable dress!

Wore this dress to college graduation. The dress has a cool vibe, and is very comfortable. I wore the 6 but could've possibly worn a 4. I'd recommend sizing down 1 or 2 sizes. Great dress to dress up or down!

Great dress.

Dress was big but I wore it anyway. I really liked the material. Had I gone down 1 size it would have fit perfectly.

Does the job

I didn't find the same issues in sizing as other reviews have mentioned. It was true to size for me and I liked to wear things layered so I would put a white collared button down underneath or a light shirt under and a big sweater over. It was cute and was good for multiple wears since it wasn't very obvious or notable. That said, the dress is a basic and a classic. Safe everywhere but not standout. You could dress it up or down and wear it as a vest or a dress. Very handy little piece.

Cute, easy, but big!

If this dress came in a petite size I'd give it 5 stars! But unfortunately it didn't and the wrap part of the dress hung so low on my leg it felt like I was wearing a sack. If I had sizes down, maybe that would have helped. Other than that the dress is great for work. The color is beautiful, it's easy to wear, and is a beautiful color.

Wanted to love it

I got this for a work event, but was uncomfortable the whole time because of the fit. It ran large, and without extra buttons on the sash, it was hard to make it tight enough not to have a massive gap in the chest. At 5'4'' it was also a tad long given the cut; even with heels it felt like I was a child playing dress up.

Simply but classy; runs large

I wanted to love this dress, but it was a little too big. Very simple and classy. Extremely comfortable, and has pockets!

Work dress

Dress fit well, though does run big but that seems to be part of the style. The front flap was frustrating to steam/iron to get it to sit flat. Got lots of compliments on the dress, great for work.

Runs very large

I am generally a size 2-4 and I was swimming in a size 2. It would be a great dress if it fit properly. I will try it in a size 0 but can't imagine going one size down will help.

Did nothing for me

I tried this on when I first received it last week and I thought it looked nice. When I put it on this morning for work I couldn't bring myself to wear it. It did nothing for my shape (curvy) and was much longer than I remembered.

Low and tighter than expected

Dress was great. It has pockets, which is great. I couldn't wear it out given how low the front was (I have a very large chest). The non-wrap layer was tighter than expected, would try it in a larger size

Super super cute but I may have needed a size up, the pockets were a little bulky and made that area look larger

Way too large, didn't even wear

This dress was way too large, to the point that I sent it back without wearing it. The fabric was nice and thick, but I'm not sure that even in a smaller size it was cut well enough to be flattering.

Sharp and cool for work

It's such a cool shape for work - not like my boring sheath dresses. Fit true to size but a boxier shape, so go down if you want it fitted.

Awkward fit

This dress just didn't do it for me. The chest was too big but the little thread holding the wrap section together was too long or loose, so it hung really weird on me. It is also pretty long. A size smaller may have been better, but I'm guessing it still would've been an awkward fit. Not wearing this one.

Modern cut for everyday

I liked the style of this dress a lot. Unfortunately, the deep-neck gaped quite a bit (even though the dress was loose) and I had to wear a turtle neck under it. Might work better for someone less hourglass (I'm 32E/32DD)

Runs big

Love the style and fabric; but it runs pretty big. I usually wear a 6 or 8 in RTR, and here I could of done a size 4.

The quality of the dress was great but it does run large and the front piece rolls back to show the underside of the dress. You have to pin down.

A little baggy but a great edgy twist on workwear

Not very fitted style so it hung off my frame a little big but still wore it as it was fun and a different take on workwear. Received compliments despite it not being the best fit.

Great for work

I threw a floral sweater over this for Easter church, and followed it up with a jacket over it for work. I really liked this dress - it fit my goal of hiding my 12-week-pregnant-is-she-just-fat-or-is-she-pregnant belly for work and with my in-laws. My only complaint was that it's a little low-cut if you're busty like I am (34G before recent growth), and I had to resort to some fashion tape and safety pins to McGyver a v-neck that didn't flash my students when I leaned forward. I'd definitely rent again for work.

Least favorite Of Mercer dress I've rented

I've been loving the Of Mercer dresses for work but this one really fell flat for me. Every other Size 12 I've worn by this designer fits me perfectly and is comfortable. This one requires not one, but 2 safety pins to keep the chest from gaping and it still hangs awkwardly. Also, the pockets don't sit well on me and add bulk to my hips. The fabric is great (Of Mercer's fabric is ALWAYS great) but this silhouette just doesn't work for my curves.

Boring

I didn't wear it. Of Mercer dresses are well made and easy to wear but this style is an excrutiating bore. The bodice fit snugly while the shaped silhouette is wide. Order one size down; I'm a solid size 4 but would have worn the 2.
