Comfortable and elegant

Great for the office with a jacket or just casual. Very comfortable. Warm. Fitted so may want a vest or jacket if you are less comfortable showing your waist or tummy

Cute but scratchy

Pros- Cute dress - great deep burgundy color. Great shape- fitted on top and flared a bit at the waist. For reference I'm 5'11" and it hit me mid-calf. Now the cons- fabric was a bit scratchy. Nothing terrible but I noticed. I thought the dress was too plain by itself so I paired with a denim jacket.

Itchy

This is so cute but way too itchy to wear! I couldn't bring myself to wear it to work because of how itchy it is. Bummed because it looks really nice on and would be a nice winter dress.

I am considering buying this dress! Comfy and Stylish!

I wore it with grey suede boots and looked awesome. Very comfy and flattering. I am a 34DD and the cut was very flattering.

Endless compliments!

I was a little worried about this dress because of the way the skirt kicks out close to the hips. I was so excited to see how perfect it compliented my curves! Its a little tricky putting it on since the neck was so tight... I felt I was going to lose half of my makeup just trying to this sucker on! The material didn't bother me but I don't have sensitive skin. Wear it with spanx for a 10 look! Overall loving this dress!

Liked it more than I expected I would

Fabric was on the the thinner side, but thankfully the dress still had a lot of shape and fit nicely. The flouncy/swing skirt elevates the dress to a make it possible to wear professionally (rather than just a slinky, casual body con). I also liked the seaming, especially around the waist, which also helped give the dress shape and structure.

Not as form-fitting as I had hoped.

I should've worn a aize down. It was looser than I had hoped. Also the color is more maroon in person than I had expected. I thought this was gonna be more cranberry. The wool is also dull and the dress looks inexpensive.

Meh

Wore this to work. Love the way it fits but something about the length was off. It was too long for me, which is rare. Fit like a glove and was very warm, i didnt experience itchiness like some others noted. I just wish the bottom were straight instead of weirdly draped on the sides.

Classy and pretty color

Fit true to size. I wore the Medium. Made of a medium thickness stretxhy sweater material that held its shape all day. Snug neck so apply makeup after dressing! Probably not a good choice if you dont like showing off your medsection because its fitted in body and then drapes off your hips.

Fantastic!

This was a great dress, style lines were super flattering and length was perfect for me. I was a little itchy by the end of the day from the wool, the dress is form fitting in the body and neck opening. I'm extra sensitive to that though and really only noticed it when I was finally sitting down at the end of the day and wanted to take it off. I wore it with light weight black leggings underneath and booties since I didn't want to go bare legged in 20 degree weather. I got several compliments are work, it's a great color.

Cute and cozy

Rented this dress with unlimited. Fabric is thin for a knit and stretchy- still in nice condition. Pro: color is lovely and deep; warm for fall through spring Cons: did not feel super special, and I felt it was not quite up to par for work. I wore on a work from home day where I had video conferences, I styled with heavy silver jewelry and sparkle flats when I picked up the kid!

Very Cute, But I Needed an L

Love this, and would consider renting again in the fall or winter, but I'd get an L, not an M. My boobs were too big for the M. I probably could have just dealt with it and worn it anyway, but I had other stuff that was more comfy to wear instead. Except for the sizing issue, really liked this dress!

Cozy

Comfortable for Fall. Bulges show on a larger gap like me so Spanx are a must. Otherwise, paired it with brown boots and it looked great.

Fit like a glove, yet very comfortable and kept shape all day. Will rent again. Did notice that the fabric is getting slightly pilled but all good.

Great fit and very comfortable

I really enjoyed wearing this dress! It was very comfortable in the over air conditioned office, but breathes well so still comfortable in the Houston heat. It's versatile and can be styled for work or fun - I paired it with a blazer and scarf for more professional look. Very flattering fit, but not so tight that it showed all sins. I wore a body slimming slip under and it worked great!

Fun fashion sweater dress

I really enjoyed this dress, slightly itchy at first but then was fine wearing it all day at work. Not super thick so it wasn't too hot and the fit is super flattering. However I would only recommend for a 5'8" or taller girl because the length would swallow up anyone shorter

TEAM RTR REVIEW

I really wanted this dress to work but it was not flattering on my shape in the size I rented. I am a 4-6 and the Medium was really snug in the arms and torso. It has one seam that stretches across the middle that has no stretch at all. I recommend sizing up and wearing no seam underwear to prevent any lines from showing.

I did not wear this dress because it didn't fit.

This was too small and tight, and not very forgiving. I was not able to wear it.

Theory does it again...this is an EXCELLENT dress!

Fit is very flattering. I am wearing a little Spanx dress underneath to keep everything smooth. COuld also achieve the smoothing out with some tights in colder weather. The dress looks great with a white sneaker for the commute and a strappy pump in the office. Could also see it with some boots and a leather jacket in early winter. Definitely a keeper!

Great for work!

This is a great dress for the winter time. It is beat for women that have an athletic or petite frame. The fabric is also extremely stretchy which is also a plus!

So many compliments - gorgeous flow and colour!

Amazing colour, beautiful fit, but beware - this shows every curve and bump. I wore it with a cute pair of booties and got so many compliments, but I was definitely aware that it was a body con dress.

Beautiful cut - but itchy itchy!

Pros: Beautiful cut, fun and flouncy. Very flattering. I could probably have gone with a small, but the medium was very comfortable (fit-wise). Con: Only one: ITCHY as hell! I don't normally have a problem with wool sweaters, but this was super scratchy. Maybe it was just the dry cleaning that made it so rough, but couldn't wear it longer than it took to take the picture. Maybe if it were hand washed in Woolite - but I wouldn't dare with a rental. Too bad, because this would otherwise be a fabulous fall/winter staple! Looked amazing with my Frye boots. So sad to return. Note on color: My photo is super dark (sorry) - but the color is a rusty-burgundy, not as bright/berry-colored as the model photo.

This is definitely one of my favorite rentals! The color is so bold and makes a statement. Wore this with black booties to work and loved it! I can say that the material is a bit scratchy, but nothing too unbearable. Will probably rent again!

Loved this dress and got tons of compliments at work. It was warm and fit like a glove.

The stitching at the end of the sleeves was starting to come apart, so I was trying not to pull at threads all day.

Body forming, a bit tight across the chest.
