Great fit!

Wore to an outdoor work function. Was appropriate and stylish, and a great option for the LA heat. Worked well on my long torso, but would probably be more drop-waist on a shorter woman.

Romantic Hemline

This dress moves so well! For sizing, in most dresses I'm a 6 but I've found that in PS I'm a size 2 - their cut leaves ample room for hips.

Rent this!!!

I was hesitant to rent this because it's not my typical style: the fabric is cut on a diagonal and there are large black buttons that run down the seam. The bottom is uneven and top is obviously Asian-inspired. It felt like a LOT going on to me, but I wore it anyway... And I'm SO glad i did!! The fit was PERFECT, at least for my body type. And the quality is clearly impeccable even to those who aren't fashion-oriented. I wore it with black heels to a work event and to a day of meetings, where I got non-stop compliments, even one from a superior who is not inclined to comment on these sort of things. I also wore the dress to the Bottlerock music festival in Napa with boots. Needless to say, this dress grew on me and I kinda fell in love and I really really wish I could keep it. If you're on the fence, just do it! You won't regret wearing this beautiful dress!

Amazing Dress for Lots of Occasions

This dress is super flattering and unique. I wore it in India for a day in various offices and then out to dinner. Then once I was back in Seattle I wore it to work and dinner. It's flowy yet tailored in the right places.

Runs large

I didn't wear this because it ran large. I'm a little boxy shaped and this want a flattering style for me because it gapped in the top and was form fitting across the waist. I think on a slender body type it may look better, but I would not rent this again.

Tricky to get on but worth it!

This very unique style is instant elegance on. The asymmetrical cut and button detail complement your shape and the pop of color (for one who lives in black) made me feel pretty and feminine but not too showy. I would rent this again for a party, but I did not feel over dressed at work. "Snazzy" was the complement of the day!

Stylish and beautiful!

This dress is easy to wear and professional all at the same time (my kind of combo!). It runs a little big, but it didn't effect the gracefulness of this dress.

awesome dress!

this reminded me of a cheongsam/qipao because of the neckline and i loved it! i've worn this designer before and am usually a 4, but found this one to be a bit looser than their usual. if you're btwn sizes i wld recommend sizing down. i'm short so it hit at the ankles. highly highly recommend this light and comfortable dress!

Very pretty but a little big in the chest area

Probably better for a taller person. Beautiful dress though.

Beautiful fabric, tight in all the right places. Buttons were a bit weird in placement, way too many to keep up but overall beautiful spring dress.

Classy

It looked great for work with a black fitted blazer over it. The armholes were a little large for me so I'm not sure if that would've been a problem had I worn it without the blazer. The fabric drapes nicely and is otherwise flattering. I normally wear a 2 or 4 depending on how tight the waist is and the 4 worked well as have other styles in this brand. I liked the asymmetric button details. The fabric was fairly light too, so it'll be good for summer as well as spring.

Got so many compliments on this dress! Trendy and fun!

Fit true to size. The top is asymmetrical which is a little awkward, but overall a great dress and I would rent it again.

Beautiful, never seen a dress quite like it.

If you love "Asian style" dresses, you will love this. Lots of buttons so it can be confusing to put on, but overall just gorgeous. The length was perfect for my age and hugs me in all the right spots. Love, love, love this dress!!!

Extremely flattering!

I loved this dress. I wasn't sure what the color would look like on me, but I was pleasantly surprised. It would be great for dancing, too... really flowy!

RTR Team Review

Very chic, unique, yet understated! Loved wearing this to work during the day, dinner and show at night. No stretch at all, with more buttons and zippers than your typical dress, so I recommend sizing up for bigger busts. I particularly loved the cut of the dress, and thought the neckline was really interesting and fun. Gorgeous fabric, and overall super comfortable! One challenge was figuring out the right bra since the sleeves are asymmetrical - I pulled it off with a regular bra, but would have been happier and less awkward in a strapless. This hit mid-calf on me at its lowest point, so would possibly brush the floor if you're closer to 5'5"/5'6". I paired it with a leather jacket and black chelsea boots - would be gorgeous with some strappy heels!

The print and the cut of the dress was very unique

I needed to wear a black cap sleeve top underneath in order to cover a little more of the arm for work, other than that it was a very flattering feminine dress that I was able to wear with black heels to work then threw on black flip flops for a casual dinner. Loved the material and details.

GORGEOUS

I adored wearing this dress and hated sending it back. It is figure flattering and a head-turner, but in a way that doesn't look like you're trying too hard.

Cool design - lots of buttons and flare!

This dress was so cool and different. I loved the flow and the way I felt in it! I had to wear a strapless bra due to the design of the arm holes. You can dress this up or down- great for a party!

Beautiful functional flattering

I didn't want to send this dress back. It's gorgeous and super flattering on my hourglass frame. I'd say it runs very slightly small--so if you're between sizes I'd go up. The fabric is heavy-ish; I wouldn't wear it on a humid summer day.

Loved the cut!

Loved the cut and angles of this dress. The buttons were a little loose from others who wore before me, but overall LOVED it! The cut was amazing and on a 5'-4" the length was not an issue due to the asymmetrical hem.

Fun wedding dress

This dress was flowy and comfortable. All the buttons made it a bit heavy. If you have a full bust, be sure you have a black bra! The deep armholes exposed some bra.

beautiful unique dress

I loved this dress! It was extremely flattering and comfortable. There is a zipper as well as buttons that are kind of weighted and give it the beautiful shape it has. I loved the way the dress fell and the neckline as well. I would definitely use again!

It served as a beautiful professional statement dress

The dress was beautiful. I wore it at a conference, where I had to speak on the panel. The downsides were the heavy buttons and the opening between the first two, which made naked skin right above my chest come through.
