Professional, fashionable leader
The dress was true to size and above the knee as pictured. I liked the cut and didn't feel the need to accessorize. This worked really well at my professional conference where I had to lead a delegation. I wore it to dinner later, too. This was a definite win from RTR!

Super cool fabric!
Super cool spacy graffiti print on this dress! Rachel Roy always has a tendency to run a little small but if you go up a size the fit is impeccable. Pockets elevate a normal sheath style and the length is perfect for a daytime, modest event. The print takes it up a notch and I'd purchase this dress!

Nice dress to travel in for me. I liked the pockets. It was very comfortable and chic.
The fit was very comfortable as the dress is well made. I would wear this often if this was a dress I own. It's so versatile!

Wore this for my bachelorette and it was perfect. Super comfortable and I got tons of compliments.
It runs slightly large. If you float between sizes, order your normal size and one size down.

Loved it!!
I loved this dress. It was perfect for an early fall wedding, heavier fabric so it held it's shape well. I wore a shaper slip underneath just for my own comfort, probably didn't need to. It was the perfect length on me, if I were taller, it would have been really short. I would rent this dress again.

Runs VERY small
I ordered both a size 14 and 16 based on reviews and neither fit. I am typically a size 12-14 depending on brands and wear a 36H bra size. This dress was very unforgiving in the midsection, so much so that even with spanx on I could see my navel through the thick fabric. The print is gorgeous and the shape I'm sure is great for someone thin with little curves, but it was not for me. Customer service was absolutely wonderful with the return process. I chose not to pick a new style because time did not allow for it to arrive before my event. I will try again and hopefully the next dress I rent for an event will be a winner.

This was a little big but did not look big so it wasn't a problem. Loved the pockets and the all over fit. I felt comfortable dancing all night in this dress it hid all my flaws and I got a lot of compliments.

Peekaboo Pink!
I really needed a 6 but they didn't have my size. The 8 fit okay. The length was still pretty short but the bust was a little large for me. Pink is my favorite color and this dress had a perfect touch of pink!

This was a great dress for a company Christmas party that was a little more casual
I didn't love the pockets, because they made my middle look wider, but it was a fun dress

Cute and comfortable dress!
I usually wear a 14 but I ordered the 16. I could have probably worn either one. It fell about 3 inches above the knee and I'm 5'5" but it may have been longer on me because I have no butt. It fit in the top which is typically why I have to size up-38DD. Sturdy zipper ( I always see people with zipper complaints). Pockets were super cute. It was nice to have a full coverage dress without looking matronly. Nice thick material. May not have been the most slimming dress but certainly didn't make me pudge out anywhere. Overall great dress and great RTR experience.

Love, love, love this dress
So I got this dress in a size 8 (which is my normal size) and I got another size in a 10. The 8 was tight so I'm glad I got the larger size, it fit like a glove and the pockets were awesome!!!

Did Not Wear
Rented this dress for date night (dinner and show) but it was too short and tight for my comfort. I'm between a 10 and a 12 so I ordered the 12 and it fit, but it was snug. If it had been longer I would have been able to wear it. I just knew I'd be tugging at it all night so I sent it back. Nice thick material, beautiful pattern, wish it would have fit better!

Love the color and pockets!
I really, really wanted to wear this dress, but it was just a little too short for me. It was one of those dresses that comes up a couple of inches when you raise your arms and it was already a pretty short dress to begin with. I wish the size 2 would've been available. I loved the color and the fact that it had pockets. Maybe I'll try renting it again in the future.

Cool print!
I rented this dress for my friends' baby shower. I normally wear size 4, but I felt it was a little tight and short, so wore size 6 instead. Love the pop of pink the fabric has. Great choice!

I absolutely loved this dress! It is so comfortable and love having pockets! The dress is well lined and I didn't feel the need to put on any body shapers. This is a great dress and I highly recommend it!

Cute dress but had a big rip in it.
The dress fit like a glove but at the event I discovered the dress had a big rip at the side seam by the pocket. Luckily there was fashion tape around and I literally taped the dress together...

Loved this dress!
I wore the dress to an artsy wedding and it couldn't have been more perfect...only made better when I discovered that it had pockets! The only complaint I have is that there was zero give to the material and I had to size up to get a more comfortable fit.

Gorgeous print but not the most flattering
I loved the print on this but found the fit not to be that flattering. I am an 8 or a 10 and even with the 10, I still had to wear Spanx and hold my abs in for pics (lol). Also, I am only 5'2" and the dress was very short. I would've liked this better in a scuba material instead of the cotton-y type fabric that it is.

Gorgeous dress!
True sheath dress. The zero fit me like a glove but I preferred the little bit of roominess the size 2 gave me and it was just as flattering. My fiancé kept telling me how stunning I looked all night. The fabric is thicker and was great for the December temperatures. I loved the print! Very unique dress.

Perfect sheath with POCKETS!
Didn't love this dress as much as I had hoped to but loved the price point and it fit well, especially on a bad body day. My backup size was very pink, not white, and had damage (no doubt from the popularity of this dress) so I'm glad my original size fit best. The print is interesting and I received a ton of compliments. Love the pockets, and that the dress is lined. Wouldn't rent again but worked really well for this event.

Cute dress!
Rented this dress to wear to a wedding. The dress is adorable, but as other reviews said it definitely runs small. I'm very busty so even my back up size was a little snug in the chest but was able to wear it. I loved the pockets on the dress! I got several compliments during the night.

Such a fun design
I wore this to a wedding and loved the dress however the 1st size sent fit me like a glove yet had a horrible body odor smell to it so I was forced to wear the one a little larger. Really cool design, I was worried it would be too white and clash with the bride but the other colors made it not look so eye catchingly white. Also saw pockets on the model online yet both of the 2 sizes I received had no pockets boo

Amazing dress -- the best I've ever rented -- for curves and style!
I'm so in love with this dress (desperate to buy it but I can't find it anywhere online) and so glad I picked it. It's a classic shape yet edgy in it's own way. I love the print, the heavy cotton fabric, the pockets and the exposed zipper. And most importantly, IT FIT. I am short (5'0) and at 36DDD, have a hard time finding dresses that fit. I went for a size 12 after reading that the dress runs a little big. I usually wear a size 10 and the 12 fit like a glove. It even had even room up top for my fun push up bra and was not at all tight across the top. The length was perfect too. I usually worry that standard sized dresses will be too long on me. This one hit just above the knee. The pockets add a little extra flare too. I wore this for an anniversary dinner with my husband and felt as pretty as I did on our wedding day. It was perfect. Tip: the dress would go well with a big statement necklace. I rented one but the pink clashed. Go for a gold or silver accessories.

Very comfortable! I am normally a size 4 but there wasn't much "give" in the chest area so I had to wear a 6. size wise it was the same. I would rent again!

Would have been a great dress if it was more comfortable
I wore this for an April wedding and, while I received many compliments on the dress, I found it uncomfortable. It was a bit shorter than I thought it would be so I was constantly pulling it down all night. I was glad to be able to wear a normal bra with the dress, but I was definitely a bit squished (I am a 38DD) so it felt a bit like i was wearing a sports bra. Overall, I would recommend sizing up (I had to) and be prepared for a short party dress that is a bit more fund if you have a smaller chest.

I loved that this dress was unique and stood out, but it was still appropriate for a day wedding.
I loved this dress! It fit perfectly (size up as it runs small, and since the material is thick, you probably want it to be a little loose as opposed to a little tight). It was so comfortable. I was able to sit, stand, and move around in it comfortably and with no issues. It was a good length, too. Usually by the end of an event, I can't wait to change into something more comfortable, but I didn't have that problem with this dress. It felt great on, it wasn't restrictive, and I was able to sit through a half-hour ceremony in the blazing sun without breaking a sweat. I would definitely recommend this dress, and I may rent it for another wedding in a few months!

WOW FACTOR PATTERN ; BUT NOT IN YOUR FACE
TIGHT IN THE THIGH / HIP AREA. HOWEVER THE FABRIC LENT ITSELF TO HAVING ALITTLE STRETCH. SLEEVES AND CHEST FIT GREAT. A LITTLE AWKAWRD WITH SITTING DOWN. LOVED THE WEIGHT OF THE FABRIC (HEAVY) STYLE WAS EASY TO DRESS UP WITH BIG NECKLACE AND NUDE SHOES.

Love, love, LOVE the pattern design on this dress!
Absolutely loved the look and feel of this dress. I would def rent it again for another occasion. I am busty, usually a size 12, but needed a 14 to fit around the chest. (full disclosure: I did not get to wear it t my event because the zipper was broken when I received it. RTR was AMAZING to work with to make sure I had a dress for my event. They sent me several recommendations, and after picking which one I wanted they overnighted my new (even prettier) dress!)

It was a rather unflattering fit
Judging from the reviews and the photos I thought this dress would look better than it did. The dress was a little small in my opinion. It fit but the size 4 (my usual size) was tight in the arms and under the bust where the waist tucks in. Overall the dress was unflattering on me which I think was due to my height. The dress was short, made shorter by the sky high slit in the back. Normally if this was an Herve dress or another skin tight dress made to be a mini I would have worn it. However, the conservative top half with just a short hemline did not work. The material is nice and thick but the dress came wrinkled. The front pockets bulged out oddly which made me look bigger than I am. Overall the design was really pretty but the dress did not work for me and I never wore it.
