Ended up not wearing this because it was too big on.

This dress is not form fitting and runs large. It is a lot less red than appears in the picture provided.

Work brunch

Great dress for conservative work brunch. Easy to wear. Comfortable. Had to roll up the sleeves are a little too long.

Subtle print and flattering fit

This is the perfect work dress - a slightly more exciting LBD (since it's not black, but a dark navy/black/maroon plaid). It is very comfortable (I sized up and it is room in a good way) and flattering. I wore with black tights and black wedges. Love the v neckline - very flattering. I did think this was a bit roomy in the chest (and I am large in that area), but didn't look funny (and this might have been b/c I sized up).

Body con work dress with great neckline

Dress had a lot of stretch, and was comfortable to wear. Sleeves were about an inch too long for me but I was able to fold them in. Print is subtle houndstooth. Great for fall.

Nice cut and a nice style for work. Ran a little bit large in my opinion and stretched out a bit throughout the day as I wore it.

Wintry dress

Wore to work but could easily wear to cocktails or a wedding. Sized down due to other reviews which wAs absolutely the right move. Fitted but not tight, and work appropriate length for a tall woman like myself. Boat neck requires a strapless bra. A little easily wrinkled.

Great fall work dress!

The material is very light and breathable, but the sleeves and length will keep you warm. The pattern is very subtle, just enough to make it a little more special than your typical navy dress (it does appear more navy in person, the photo makes it look more red). Will definitely rent again!

Nice seasonal dress

Runs a little large but overall it was great! I love the long sleeves (many dresses are three-quarter sleeves which I hate when it's cold!) Comfortable and flattering... will rent again!

Perfect for family dinner

I rented this for Thanksgiving, it was perfect fit, not too loose or tight, and worked for church and family dinner that night. The plaid is very muted which I liked, so it definitely looks more black unless you are out in good light. My only problem was that the v-neck was a little loose, so it kept lifting off my shoulders and showing my bra strap, but really was not a big deal.

Nice Dress

This dress has a nice, flattering cut and very nice, thick fabric with a subtle plaid. It does wrinkle easily under a winter coat though! I wore it with boots and tights and felt comfortable and polished.

Nice, but not special

The colors are much muddier in real life - I could barely make out any red. The fit was flattering and I liked the wide neckline. Nice every day dress but nothing special.

Nice dress, but not memorable

The pattern looks so much more classic in the photo - in person its much darker and more 'muddy'. Neck was very open, had to constantly be checking that bra straps werent showing. Fit through body was flattering.

Very classic, a sharp look for the office

Loved the neckline, although it tended to fold a bit at the top. Overall fit was great (worked with a large chest). Length was perfect on me (5' 6"). Great downtown office look.

Wore it to work

Gorgeous fabric and really great work dress. I am 5'8" and it was a little short on me, but I wore it with dark tights and it was fine even in my very conservative, business-professional leaning office. The wide neckline is beautiful, but would definitely show straps from a bra/cami if not managed properly - just an FYI for anyone who might wear this to work or a work related event.

Perfect for a winter wedding

The sizing and feel of this dress are great. It has some stretch, and was a great choice for a winter wedding. I had anticipated being cold, so I appreciated the sleeves. The cut of the dress is slimming. I paired it with burgundy heels. This piece could certainly be work to work, dinner or elsewhere -- it has great versatility. One note, the colors in the dress are actually much deeper than they appear on the screen.

LOVE! Great work dress.

The dress fit as expected. It was a perfect winter dress - the fabric is substantial enough to keep you warm, but very comfortable. The print is much less pronounced than it appears in the photo - it is very nice.

Liked it a lot but it does stretch out.

The dress is very comfortable and stretchy. At first I thought it was going to be too tight. But after an hour it stretched out. I didn't LOVE the dress because the material tends to pucker when it stretches out. I should also note that I ordered a XS but got a Petite. instead... so maybe it's puckering because I am trying to wear the petite size and am 5'7"? Bottom line, cute enough to wear once, for sure! but I wouldn't order it again.

Ok for work

This is an ok dress for work. The fabric is heavy and suitable for winter and cooler climates. It's gray with lines of blue and red. It has absolutely no stretch. The arms and neck were a touch on the small side, and the length felt like it was just about at the too short for work line. Overall, it was a fine dress for work, but not my favorite unlimited RTR so far.

Nice winter work dress

This is a very nice winter work dress. Heavy fabric and flattering fit. The small was a tad too small, and the medium was a tad to big, but I wore the medium anyway. As others have said, the photo does not accurately reflect the real color of the dress. It is very blue, with a hint of red, and the pattern is much more muted than in the photo. I like the actual fabric better than that shown in the photo. I may rent again.

Nice casual dress

I like the way the dress shows more of your shoulders. The length was a little shorter than I thought it would be but overall a nice casual dress.
