Loved the fit

The cut was perfect, very flattering. Loved the slits down the arm. Quality fabric and breathable, suitable for summer weather.

Make sure you have a steamer

This dress is beautiful! Gorgeous color and the fabric is very forgiving, but it is crepe and wrinkles significantly. I still love it and would rent again.

So happy with this dress

This dress is very comfortable. It has a loose fit but is not boxy at all. It looks very professional and classy. I agree with others that it does wrinkle easily but that shouldn't be a reason not to rent. The sleeves are fun and airy and the slit in the upper back gives the dress a bit of sexiness. Would definitely rent again for a work event.

Great dress for business and after hours events. This was one of my favorite RtR.

Beautiful dress and fit... Wrinkles easy

Wore this dress for my anniversary and again to work, received lots of compliments. It wrinkles easily when sitting but still such a great dress. I would rent this again.

Love love love

I want to buy this dress so badly! Perfect for business meetings. Wore it with my hair tied up and some heels and felt really professional. Theory stuff always runs a little small so I sized up and the 4 fit perfectly. Only small complaint is it wrinkles easily, but the darker color helps hide them

Very stylish, unique - wore to work although it's not exactly office wear. I had an event after to work though so I felt justified. Lots of compliments! Will rent again. Great fabric too.

Theory dress

RTR sent me this last minute because there was an issue with a previous item I ordered. I am so glad as I loved this dress so much. It fit true to size and was very flattering, I received a lot of compliments. The only issue was that it did wrinkle a lot in the car going to the party. I would definitely rent again!

So many compliments!

This dress was so comfortable yet super stylish! I wore it once to work and a second time to a seminar! It fit great and while cut outs on shoulders isn't really my thing, it worked on this dress without seeming too young or trashy looking. It was really fashion forward yet professional!

Great versatile dress

This size 2 is an exchange on unlimited for a size 4. It fits much better, and I could probably even go smaller if needed. The opening in the arms are a nice touch that make this conservative dress interesting. Great dress for many occasions, and would look good with different shoe options. I plan to order it again.

Didn't get to wear out.

Super cute, can dress up with heels, or down with cowboy or tall boots. I've held on to it waiting for an occasion to wear it, and none have come up!

Cute

Fit was good, but it was a little longer than I'd like. Also, the neck cut pulls a little. Cute and comfy overall.

Flattering and flirty theory standard

Really skimmed over my frame in a flattering way. Could have worn a size down for a slim fit look. Many compliments! Loved the fabric and flow too

Really pretty

Love this, great color and very slimming. The arms are pretty but very open and it's hard to wear a cardigan or jacket over it, so keep that in mind.

Beautiful Color

I ended up not wearing this dress but wanted to leave review because I loved it equally as much as the dress I did wear. Everything about this was great---length, sleeves and OMG THE COLOR. I'll rent this again for another less formal event coming up.

Love it so so much

This dress is amazing. It's sexy AND adorable. I felt amazing. Got amazing compliments. I'm still wearing it. Never taking it off. It fits true to size- hugs curves, hides minor flaws. Not too short but not conservative.

Adorable dress that made me so happy!

This dress fit me perfectly! I loved it so much I wore it two days in a row. Once for a public speaking engagement and the next day for work. It is an adorable dress at just the perfect length and very flattering. Can't wait to rent it again!

Cute, comfortable dress that made me feel very feminine

I loved this dress and wish it was cheaper so I could've purchased it! I bought it to wear to a work event but ended up just wearing it to work. It ran true to size while being loose enough to be comfortable but still made me feel very feminine. Would definitely recommend it!

Lots of compliments

It looks really nice on. I love everything Theory - they're great for petites and run true to size. This dress was a little different to the Theory dresses that I own because it was a dark green/blue, but their stuff always has really nice accents for this dress it was the slits in the shoulders/arms giving the cold shoulder vibe but totally corporate work appropriate.

Dress has great shape!

The waist is comfortably fitted without enough room to be comfortable at work, without sacrificing the subtle hint of curves. Material feels great. It came very wrinkled, but steamed it and the wrinkles came out easily. Didn't wrinkle during the work day. I love the tie slit sleeves. Pair it with a statement necklace.

Great color, super flattering

I normally wear a 2, but sized-down based on reviews. Perfect length for petite- hit a couple inches above the knee for a cute short length appropriate for work. Seems to wrinkle easily.

Trendy, fitting, & a little flirty!

Loved this dress for work! The openings in the sleeve gave it a little flair. The dress itself, I think, is a good length and pretty modest. It's flowy at the bottom and reached my knees. Yet it still gave my waist shape at the top! The neckline was just simple enough to not overdo the sleeves of the dress. Would wear again! #WangsWorkWear

Already regret sending this one back

Wish I had held on to this dress. It was everything a great work dress should be: comfortable, classy, but also interesting. The fabric feels great and the cut of the dress makes it easy to move around. The keyhole sleeves keep it from being boring. Received lots of compliments on this one and will definitely be renting again.

Great work and weekend dress

Loved this dress I wore it to a show and to work on another day. It's pretty comfortable and good material. Would have given it five stars but ran a little big, I would have liked it to be more fitted around the waist.

Loved the color ! Dress was professionally w a little sassy

Great for work. Nice color and material. It wrinkled a bit but it was dark so that was okay. Hard to tie the sleeves unless you get help. Dress on the shorter side but that made it a little sexy given the conservative front!

Simple and flattering

I rented this for a nice dinner out, and while it's a very simple style, I really liked it. It's my husband's favorite dress that I've worn! The color is beautiful, and the fabric is a good weight - it's light enough that it has movement but not so light that it shows everything. Would rent again!

Conservative, but still trendy

I liked the dress. I had to wear the back up size since my preferred size was not available at time of shipment. It was a little big, but i thought it still looked nice. Paired it wih black opaque tights and black heels. Received a lot of compliments. It was extremely comfortable, too. Only complaint - It did look fairly wrinkled by the end of the night.
