Obsessed, OBSESSED with this dress!!
My husband picked this out from several RTR options I presenting him for his business's grand opening party. It was a cocktail reception, and although the majority of his clients are business men in suits (and with this dress I would fit right in), I worried I would be too "office-y" for such an important, festive day for both of us. As soon as the compliments started rolling in, I knew I had the right dress! This dress hugs in all the right places, making for a very classy dress with a sexy silhouette. Conservative sexy if you will. From men to women; from people I knew to people I didn't know; from young to old(er), the compliments were abundant, insistent and extremely flattering. My favorite compliment of the night: "Now THAT is a dress." This is a dress worth owning. I would rent again in a heartbeat for a business party or event. I couldn't believe the endless sea of compliments!

Very chic and comfortable but runs a bit large
Love the dress- color, material, the gold zippers are perfection.. But for me it ran a little large. Gave me square shoulders and wasn't as form fitting as I had hoped. It was probably just my body type. . wish it had fit a bit better because it really is a stunning dress!

My Fiancé's jaw dropped when he saw me in it, and he kept saying I wish you could keep this dress!
The dress fit me like a glove! In the best way! The material was great, it had somewhat of a stretch to it, but the material had a thick, soft feel to it. I liked the length, I am 5'3" so it can be hard to find a dress that hits the right point on your leg. It was right above the knee. It could have been maybe an inch shorter for another occasion, but it was perfect for the dinner date I went on. If you order this dress you won't be disappointed!

Beautiful thick material, perfect for cold winter!
I really loved the comfortable stretch and the thick dress material. Very well made. I wore this to a political fundraiser and it was a very appropriate and respectful dress. Plenty of compliments. The only issue was the dress occasionally would ride up and I needed to pull down into place. Other than that, I would rent it again.

Bold, sleek and slimming dress.
The shoulder details are sleek and bold. I love the bluish purple color and the vertical black strip in the middle. It helps make a petite gal look taller and I'm sure a tall person look even more statuesque. The dress really hugged my curves the right way - for someone with an hour glass figure this is usually a challenge. Perfect dress for a work dress up day! Loved it.

Fit was a little off for me
This dress is nice and thick, you can tell it's very well made. Personally I had a lot of extra thick fabric that gathered at the small of my back; however, the rest of the dress fit like a glove. This would be great for a cool night, and maybe a more square, straight body shape.

Lots of compliments!
I wore this dress to speak at a conference and I got a lot of compliments on it! It was formal enough that I felt confident and sexy enough that all the men couldn't stop staring at me! Including my very handsome boyfriend! I really love this dress!

Pair with chunky gold accessories & shape wear!
This a truly body con dress. I have a tummy so I won't rent it again. I got tons of compliments despite not feeling 100% comfortable in the dress. It's a great design, material and warm, so great for colder weather.

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!!

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!

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.

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.

Who are you wearing?
I received the dress as a back up, but I absolutely loved it. Worn to a business function and I got asked the question "who are you wearing?" Who!?! I was never asked that "who" question before so that was cool. The material is very thick. Don't wear this somewhere in hot temps. Felt important in this dress. Thank you RTR!

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.

Very warm and cozy
This is def very form fitting and a heavy fabric. I wore to VT rehearsal dinner and it was great for the fall weather. The sleeves were def too long but I was able to fold up. True to size in other areas and very nice thick but comfortable fabric.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Felt like a total beautiful badass!
My partner said I looked like I was from Star Trek. I totally take that as a complement. It's modern it's edgy it does really nice things for your body because the black stripe in the middle gives the illusion that you are slimmer. There's a really good scratched in the fabric which for me was excellent because it meant I could really have freedom in my arm movement. It's skimmed my midsection but was it super tight in the midsection which for me was perfect. It was work appropriate and I wore it for a presentation but I didn't want to take it off. I would buy this dress. The little shoulder zippers are so fun! The fabric is on the thicker side and a little bit warm.

THIS DRESS ROCKS!!!!!!!
OMG I love this dress so much. I swear I would love to own it. I got so many compliments it was ridiculous. I rented this dress for a holiday party and I was the best dressed HANDS DOWN!!!! Everyone else had on dresses to small and very revealing. I straight murdered everyone fully clothed!!! This dress is so comfy and hugs your curves to the max. It was the perfect dress for a chilly night party. I have no complaints at all.

Gorgeous figure-flattering dress for a bachelorette party!
This dress definitely runs large - I am usually a solid size 6, but this looked much better in a 4. I wore spanx underneath so everything would be smooth, but the material was thick and very forgiving anyways. Highly recommend! Perfect for a winter party!

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.

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.

Didn't get to wear the dress at all since it was an awkward fit.
Very thick fabric, so don't wear it anywhere warm. The dress was a bit too long for me and it went past my knees (I'm 5'5''). Usually a size 4, but that was too big. Size 2 was almost perfect, but the sleeves were a bit long- they ran past my wrists. The fit for me in general was a bit awkward, so I didn't wear it at all.

Loved this stylish and classy dress!
I loved this well-made dress and I wish I owned it! The fabric and construction were substantial and felt great. I am usually between either a 4 or 6 depending on the style of dress, and went with the 6 on this one. It's body con, and I felt the fabric laid more cleanly in the 6, and also felt that the waist sit a little high in the size 4 (I am 5'7" 135 and not leggy). I loved the color block and it is very flattering. It was easy to wear, the sleeves are a bit longer which I liked, but I wouldn't pair this with a statement bracelet or cuff. I received lots of compliments and was comfortable all night! My husband loved it and he's picky. I had been eyeing this one for a while, and I would call it a 'must rent!'.

Hugs your curves!
I am typically between a 0 and a 2 and I could barely get the 0 on! I ending up wearing the 2 wine tasting and it definitely feels like a designer dress. I am not sure it was flattering on my mid section, but I imagine if you have a longer middle then it would look great.

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.
