Just "ehh"

The buttons at the top were awkward. Looked like a box on me.

Cute and comfortable dress for work

This is a comfortable dress that is perfect for work. It does run big and is boxy in shape. But good option for unlimited users

Pockets are the best!!

I typically wear a 12, but I thought the 10 fit great. I wore with gray tights and gray shoes. I loved the simplicity and so comfortable. The pockets were the best surprise!

I really wanted to love this dress.

The dress is so cute...on the hanger. However, once I put it own it kinda fit me like a potato sack. The pockets jut out in a weird way causing my hips to look artificially wide. If the dress didn't have pockets, I could have at least tried to wear it. In the end I returned it unworn. Would not rent again.

Professional Work Dress with sleeves so no blazer or cardigan needed.

I wasn't in love with this dress, but thought it looked professional for a conference & I wouldn't have to wear a blazer or cardigan. I felt like a flight attendant a little in this dress, nothing wrong with that, but it's what it reminded me of. However, I got numerous compliments and that made me like the dress more. The dress is extremely comfortable. I didn't find the pockets usable b/c they would pull the dress in an awkward way. Also, I felt like I was readjusting the pockets often for them to lay down after walking or standing for long periods of time.

Compliments and pockets!

So I went with the reviews and ordered a size smaller. It was great! I went to a 40th birthday party and got tons of compliments. Enough that I may buy it.

Awesome fabric

Great fabric, true to size, and cut very flattering so you can look great all day even if your at too much at lunch. Totally SFW. And pockets are a nice touch. No zippers. Just unsnap the details at the top!

Classy and timeless!

If you're looking for a sophisticated piece that goes from desk to dinner, this is it! Fit was loose but not overly so - wore without a belt and think it worked well that way. Great for interviews!

Little too stuffy

Great cut and quality but way too long for my 5'4" frame....felt a little sister wives in it. I though I could make it a fun party dress with high heels but more business ish

Simple but cute

I'm very short and initially put on this dress and took it off because both the overall length and sleeve length did not look good. But then I spotted my clothing hem tape on my dresser and voila! This dress looked great after I put on the recommended clothing safe tape from RTR and got compliments for dayzzzzz! Depending on your work environment, this could be done with chunky wedges for a more casual look or pumps for more formal. I wouldn't recommend big jewelry...The buttons do it all. Oh and it's super comfy.

Cute for work

As other reviewers mentioned, if you have a booty this will be tight. The other issue is that the pockets stick out right at the widest part of your hips and they won't stay tucked in. I still wore it, but it was just ok for me.

Not aboard the love boat

This dress isn't for you if you have a broader upper body or hips. The snaps make you look broad and the pockets enhance the hip area. It fit true to size but I looked like I spent too much time on the lido deck (i.e. A hot mess) so it went back. Was worth a shot!

Comfortable and stylish

Loved this dress. It runs large and is a straight cut. Even though it was a bit boxy, people kept commenting on how slim I looked. The button details are fun. Great dress for work.

Comfy for a long commute

Love, love, love the pockets. It's the right length for work and didn't ride up while carrying my purse and laptop bag all over D.C. with me. Almost didn't return it!

Boxy with odd pockets

This dress wasn't great for my build. The pockets stuck out and made me look like I had odd hips. Sizing up would not have helped because it was already on the large side. I think this dress may be more ideal for someone who is has a straight and narrow build.

Comfy basic dress

This dress was super comfortable. While it is pretty simple I actually got a lot of compliments on it. It's great for Work and especially on a day you don't feel like wearing anything too clingy.

Great relaxed dress

This dress is great for the office, or everydress. True to size, and loose fit through the middle, so great for eating ;-). I ordered a 12, could have worn an 8. (I have broad shoulders; so I wasnt sure of jow the fit would be at first)

Husband loved it

Very comfortable at 7.5 months pregnant. 5.8' 155lbs at this point. Could be a good nursing dress because the side buttons open up on eother sidd if the dress
