Clingy!

The color is beautiful and so is the draping around the neck, but the fabric seems prone to static (might be different in the summer). I wore this dress with polka dot tights and it just seemed like the dress was super clingy and would ride up when I walked.

Stylish red!!

Definitely a loose fit (designed that way), looked great with a thin black belt to define the waist. Neckline was unique!

Great dress to spice up the work week!

I really liked this dress, although I thought it was a little big. Not sure I'd go down a whole size though. I got SO MANY compliments on this - especially on the color. Expect some "Lady in Red" references. I did have to keep pulling the shoulders forward a bit so that the neck draped appropriately, otherwise it pulled back against my neck and you couldn't see the detail. It's a pretty long dress and came down to my knees. The dress is in great shape.

Great color

I wore this to work once, but wish I had sized down (small versus medium). The material is soft and light - probably flattering if more fitted.

Beautiful dress with fabulous cowl neck.

The dress was too long for me, since I'm petite, so I wore it with a belt, which worked great. I wish RtR carried petite tho.

Great & Comfortable

This was the first RTR item I got to wear and I LOVED it. I wore it to work but it would be great for something a little more formal or date night!

I didn't wear this

A beautiful color but I didn't like the neckline. My husband said it looked frumpy (so an instant "no") and it ran big

Odd. Just odd.

I wanted to love this dress but the neck was too high and the arm holes were constrictive. The fit was unflattering all around.

Fun pop of red!

I liked this dress and enjoyed wearing it. Only 4/5 stars tho because the pics make the front neckline look like it pops more than it does. I liked the idea of a high straight neckline. Not a complaint, just something to note.

Material thin

Material was thin and oddly cheap feeling for Theory. Shape was very boxy. Very unflattering

The dress runs big through the hips, but the neck and back make up for that.

Pretty style

A few things to consider: + not lined + fabric is lighter which affects the drape + more of a shift dress; not super fitted + neckline can be bothersome--is fairly high In general, very pretty.

Stylish work dress

Love this dress. Fabric is lovely; color is amazing! It looks better on than in the photo. It has great movement. I got compliments in the office. It is loose but it works as a work dress, if it were tighter, it would be good for evening but a bit too sexy for work. I will rent it again to wear.

Hits below knee. I'm a bit between sizes so went with the medium and it was a little big.

Lining required

Really liked this dress overall. It was comfortable but you have to be careful of the lines your bra/panties will make. The fabric hugs every line (not static) like an old Hollywood wedding dress. With spanx it was perfect

This dress is pretty near perfect. Great length. I love the way it hangs. The red color is gorgeous. I may buy this one.

The dress runs very large. The hips are huge. The top doesn't lay like it does on the model. So sad, because material and color are great.

Ok

This was fine for work and comfortable but I didn't love the neck and it is shapeless although I don't think it made me look fat. So just ok.

Frumpy

It was baggy in my hips and tight in my chest, so the cowls neck sat funny. I felt very frumpy in the dress and returned it without wearing it

Great color, interesting neckline

A little long and shapeless but such a great color and the neckline makes up for it. Would look best on taller frame (or belted).

Better for someone without curves

I rented this dress for work since I loved the neckline but I'm honestly shocked this is a $375 dress. It isn't lined and there is no zipper, so make sure you do your makeup before you put it on. The dress didn't mold to my curves and instead just sat like a potato sack. I think this would be much more flattering on someone who didn't have hips much larger than their waist and chest. Loved the color and the neckline but overall fit was not what I was hoping for.

Easy to accessorize

It is more of an easy fit so if on the fence, size down. paired with cropped black blazer. Could define waist more with black belt. Somewhat long, not ideal if shorter than 5'3

Cute but a little large

I was really excited for this dress. It was still nice, but it fell a little short of my expectations. The neckline didn't stay nicely as pictured -- I kept having to pull it forward as it crept towards my neck. The dress also ran rather large, even on my 2nd trimester pregnant body, so it felt a bit shapeless.

The color and neckline are beautiful. The dress is just a smidge too loose.

the length is fine, the neckline is really good, the dress is just a little too loose.
