Great everyday work dress

Great basic Theory dress that was both cute and comfortable. Material is soft but thick. Overall fit is true to size but the cut is forgiving. I'll probably rent this one again!

Cute but not for me.

This dress is such nice material. Very comfortable and forgiving. I really liked it a lot for work. I did not wear it because I thought it made me look top heavy. It didn't fall in the right place for me with a short torso. Definitely made for someone taller.

Great basic work dress

I'm usually a solid size 4, but they were out of the small when I ordered. The medium fit as I thought it would. It is a nice thick material. I think I'll rent it again in this size if I need to conceal an early bump in the future. The silhouette was of a shift dress.

It makes me feel like I'm a school teacher from the old days. Very comfortable, wish it had pockets though!

Weird fit

The print and fabric of this dress were fantastic! Once I put it on though, I realized the fit was going to be a problem; the top, including the neck fit large while the the dress pulled across my hips, then it was loose toward the bottom. Perhaps this was supposed to be a bodycon dress and I should have sized down? In any case, had it fit correctly, it would have been a home run due to the texture of the fabric and the print.

Nice fabric, fit true to size.

Actually a plaid, thought it was black but I liked the latter . I did not personally like the neckline, it was like a mock turtleneck but lower.

Comfy yet polished

This dress is equal parts comfy and polished. Loved wearing this to work, but it's just a little bit short. I would wear again but with sheer gray or navy tights.

Great Quality Dress

This dress is incredibly cute which you can dress up or down. I paired with tall black leather boots and a belt. It's a little longer than it seems in photos but overall quite quality dress. A pretty thick material

Baggy in the chest/ neck area

Great fabric, definitely is heavy but not too heavy, and warm! Wore this with tights in the winter. I think the medium was slightly large for me, but only a smidge. And in the neck and bust area, it was rather baggy. The material is good/heavy so it didn't look too bad, but overall the fit was kind of weird on me. Would not rent again, although in general I like theory!

Dinosaur back?

I was so excited to get this dress. When I put it on, I found that the fabric around the zipper gathered and made it look like I had bumps doing down my back. It's also very short (not something I expected to write since I'm 5'3")! Super disappointing!!!

Perfect for Casual Office Holiday Party!

It's comfortable, warm (northeast winter), and has an elegant silhouette. I have a curvy backside and it minimized while still showing my figure. The material has some stretch to it as well. To dress it up I just threw on a sparkly necklace and over the knee high heeled boots. In love with this dress.

I love this dress so much. Fits perfectly--TTS--and not too short for my conservative office. The windowpane detail is so cute.

Cute versatile dress!

Dress is well made, soft and the pattern blends in well that you can dress up or dress down. The style/cut did not work for my shape. I got this for a work event and decided not to wear since dress was tight around mid section and accentuated my tummy. I would not recommend for a curvy/hourglass figure.

Cute dress

It's definitely short so paired with tights and flat boots for work. Comfortable material. Only complaint is that the zipper is rippled.

This dress is so cute and I got a ton of compliments. I ended up wearing with a belt since it's a bit loose around the waist.

Great work dress!

Nice stretchy material. A little tight on my bust, but not unflattering. I'll probably where spanks with because It is form fitting. Hangs well and is cute and appropriate for an office setting.

Great fit, stylish and professional

The only issue was the hemline of one of the sleeves came undone but that will hopefully be fixed for the next renter. I wore this for a couple work events and felt super comfortable. It was long enough to be appropriate but short enough to look modern and stylish. It also doesn't wrinkle so traveled well.

Love the fit on my curves!

The first time I ordered this dress the zipper was damaged. I'm so glad I gave it another try. The neckline is flattering and I love the fabric. I wore it with navy tights and brown boots and a denim jacket. It was the perfect look for my casual office

Wore this with a scarf and it was fun to jazz it up.

This dress ran a bit large for me - I wore the M. I did get one compliment on it, but ultimately didn't think this was the most attractive Theory dress I've ever worn. Don't really recommend it.

The dress was really long on me (I'm 5' 4") - it just about covered my knees.
