Didn't love it, unfortunately!
The fabric is heavier than I expected and doesn't fit very smoothly. I felt boxy in the dress and found the zippers on the should to be awkwardly. But the dress is definitely true to size.

Great Fit
This dress is very fitted and structured. I could see the shoulders being too wide for some, but I had no issue...though the sleeves were almost too long. This dress has a good bit of stretch to the fabric making it easy to get a good fit and very flattering. Fabric is very thick and warm. RTR should have more dresses with fabric that has some stretch. It is so much easier for fabrics that have give to offer a broad range of ladies the right fit.

Great dress!
I wore this to a work function, very flattering and great material. It is, as others have mentioned, a very thick material and i would not get it if you are going to be outside in higher climates.

Slimming, flattering, classy
Wore to a funeral actually and was in the dress for over 12 hours after all. Very comfortable and very flattering cut. Thick fabric made it great for December in New England. Many compliments.

Boxy and unflattering
The dress was very long and form fitting throughout, yet extremely large and boxy in the shoulders. The zipper did not help the situation. Ultimately, too odd of a cut for a more "straight and narrow" body type, so I ended up not wearing it.

Great for the fall
I wore this dress to a baby shower this fall ad the thick fabric was perfect for the weather. The 6 was a little large, but I'm not sure that the 4 would have fit (I got an 8 as my backup). All in all, the length was great and it was comfortable. It does give you boxy shoulders but I personally didn't hate it.

Chic and sophisticated
Despite being a size too large and being a little loose (they did not have my size in stock) it still looked beautiful! I loved that the thick fabric hugged my body but still provided coverage for any problem areas. Received lots of compliments

Finally a waist that fits!
My waist is 26 hips are 36 and have a hard time finding dresses that aren't big in the waist or tight on the hips. This dress is not only cut well the fabric has just enough stretch in it to make it flattering and fitted without being too clingy or restrictive. Fabric's also really thick so it's forgiving. Sleeves were long but I just folded them under and you couldn't tell. If it wasn't so identifiable I would have bought it.

Fit great, warm enough for cool evening temperatures, kind of reminded me of a wetsuit, but in a good way.

Super cute & comfortable for fall wedding!
Material is very stretchy but with some hold. Great longer length on me, 5'2", which I liked that it wasn't too short. It was the perfect mix of keeping me warm but not hot at an outdoor wedding (65 degrees). Sleeve length is great for longer arms. Great dress overall!

I ordered this dress for my engagement photos and loved it!
The dress is very form fitting, so if you are planning to wear any kind of waist trainer or girdle underneath -- think again! If you have the shape for it, the dress will compliment your curves and is quite flattering.

This dress is a home run! It fits true to size for Rachel Roy dresses. The fabric is thick and high quality and the color blocking design is complimentary. Highly recommend!

Star Trek dress
I really wanted to like this more but the dress had a Star Trek uniform look that distracted me too much to wear it. If you can get over that it's a flattering dress and thick material.

Size up for this bodycon
This was an unlimited rental, and not my fave. Would have preferred a size 6 because it creeped up when I walked and my boobs looked huge in the clingy fabric.

Great looking dress
This was a very pretty and flattering dress. I think it would look best on people with a curvier figure. I felt great in it though I'm not super curvy myself. I loved that the sleeves were long enough and it was nice that it hit just above the knees as I am a pretty tall person. I wore this to work and I think it would be great for going out with friends or on a date as well. The material is really warm and it's a pretty shade of navy along with the black. This dress is definitely body con so if you have a conservative office you probably won't feel comfortable wearing it to work. I think I was pushing it a little at my office but figured I could get away with it due to the length and because I wore tights underneath it.

Not the best fit for my body type - curvy
It definitely shows curves. I'm a true 10 and ordered the 10. It was tight for work but not flattering for going out either. It didn't fit my body type very well. The sleeves are funky - you'll notice zippers at the top of the sleeves if you look closely. Again, it wasn't too flattering on me. It could be a great going out / nice dinner dress for the right person. Color block is nice.

Not for long waisted ladies.
Unfortunately I am quite long-waisted, and the curve for where a bum would be on an average torso hit me much too high. Cute dress and otherwise flattering. I have narrow shoulders, so the detailing on the shoulders of the dress was great for me. However, it would likely really highlight broad shoulders. I am also not very busty and could imagine this dress accentuating a large bust because of where the color blocking hits and the snug nature of the dress.

Perfect dress for a chilly night out in Vegas MLK weekend.
This dress was perfect for the chilly weather out in Vegas because the material is thick (it also helped keep everything in). I didn't wear tights and I was good. I think the dress was classy and fun.

Fancy date night.
This is a wonderful dress. I wore this with some platform high heeled booties and a simple pendant necklace. The dress doesn't need more than that. I could have worn the 12 but I found the 14 more comfortable in the shoulders and back area. The dress is wonderfully thick - great for fall or winter. The length is modest. Excellent quality. My only complaint would be the back, with the zipper, bunches and does not lay flat. I wore this with a traditional bra and light control pair of Spanx to smooth out things. Definitely felt chic.

Wore it for my graduation from nursing school. Loved it!
This is the first time I used RTR and loved the dress. I wore it to my graduation pinning ceremony for nursing school. It was the perfect combination of conservative with a little bit of sass. Got tons of compliments. It's very form fitting, but thick so doesn't show all the flaws. Very flattering. I ordered the 8 and 10, but ended up wearing the 10 because my boobs are so huge. Highly recommend.

Good choice for winter
This was not the best dress for my body type. I have a straight figure and broad shoulders, so the horizontal line at the shoulders and vertical lines down the front just made me look MORE straight and MORE broad. This is a dress for curvy women with narrower shoulders! But I liked the idea of it. It's good quality. Since it's a thick knit, it was both comfortable and warm for a chilly night. The fabric has no shine at all, so it would be a good option for work, too. I liked the length and silhouette, but the design just wasn't the best for my body.

Perfect dress for the event.
Dress was great for a wintertime luncheon. The dress is flattering for my build and comfortable. Decided to wear the 10 as it was a little longer (My hips are full) The fabric is thick and has give, follows your curves, but looks smooth, sleek. I did wear spanx. A form fitting dress can be comfortable and flattering. My only complaint has with other dresses I have rent. The hidden zippers are so hard to zip up. I need help with them. Had to stop to have a friend zip up the back.

Great fit -- accentuates your silhouette without feeling too tight.
I wore this dress on a first date and absolutely loved the fit. It really accentuates your silhouette without feeling super tight. I'm a pear shaped (small boobs, larger behind) and find it difficult to find dresses that fit. This one was a dream. I would recommend going down a size for the back-up size. I'm typically a 4 but ended up wearing the 2 because the 4 was a little bulky.

Warm covered up dress, perfect for winter!
Love that it shaped my body well. Wore this out to a birthday dinner then dancing afterwards. I love how the dress could transition to just about any event. Lots of people had complimented me on the dress and that it looked like I lost weight. I think it was just the dress. ;) It was cold out, about 30 degrees, so being covered up helped a lot and I wore black stockings and black heels to go along with it. My fiancé was sad I had to return it. I would rent the dress again!

Super flattering, perfect for fall or winter
I loved this dress and wish I could keep it. Other reviewers as well as RTR recommend that you size down for your back-up and glad I did because that is what I ended up wearing. The material is thick ponte knit and stretchy. I wore high-waisted shapewear to smooth things out and the dress helped with some of the smoothing as well. This dress is meant to fit tight and hug your body. It was very flattering and on the warm side, perfect for my fall night out.

Slimming!
I wore this dress to a baby shower and received TONS of compliments. It was a thicker material that kind of holds you in. I would totally rent this dress again- it made me look and feel amazing. I'm glad I ordered a size smaller for my backup size. I ended up wearing the 6 which was a little tight, but for a sitting event it was fine. I didn't try on the 8, so I can't speak to how that fits. But I was very happy!!

Sleek and sexy dress
I rented this dress as a back-up option for a cocktail event for my job. I ended up wearing it out to dinner instead since I really liked it, but thought it was a bit too sexy for me for work. The dress was very form fitting, but I wore spanx underneath, and was still pretty comfortable. The heavy fabric is great for cooler weather and I loved having the long sleeves, which were actually a good length. Overall this was a great dress, I'm disappointed I forgot to take a picture!
