This dress is versatile and very flattering. Wore it for a night on the town, and then another night dressed down. I did find myself tugging at it a bit, pulling the top up and the skirt lower.

Very sexy chic mini dress. Wore it to a NYC anniversary party. The dress almost gives a spanx effect as the bodice is tight but slimming. The draping also conceals the mid section which is nice. Very comfortable to dance and socialize in. Recommend for smaller busted petite frames.

My first RTR dress has arrived! So exciting! The dress is really flattering - I ordered the 6 and the 8 and could fit into either size, because the material is really stretchy (someone else said "spanx effect" and I agree) so let's be honest - who wouldn't wear the 6? The only thing is that there is this fold down elastic band around the top (with the theory tag on it) that seemed to be popping up in the back, so we'll have to see about that. cannot wait to wear this dress in vegas for halloween!!!

This dress just wasn't flattering on me, I felt like the layers made me look bulky in the waist. Perhaps it might look nicer on someone a little taller though.

This is a simple but stunning LBD. I dressed it up with some fun accessories and a short vest. I normally wear a size 2 but the 4 felt much more comfortable. Still really elastic and form fitting, but room to breathe!

i'm one of those unlucky girls who has a noticeable fat pocket on my lower stomach so tight dresses just dont really work. but the rouching did help a bit.

This dress is jersey material - it runs small and ended up being too short and tight!

I rented this dress for a friend's bachelorette. I loved the snug, body-hugging fit. The thick material and draping made the dress quite flattering yet classy, while hiding all undie lines, etc..

When I go this dress, my first thought was "how the heck do I put this thing on?" The folds of the fabric were layered and really confusing, but once I finally figured it out, it was actually pretty cute. It's a great dress for hiding tummies, but it did tend to ride up a little bit because the fabric really clings to your body.

great dress!

the fabric is stretchy, but not made of jersey material. the top fits like tube top and has a built in bra. for your midsection, it hides anything, but if you don't have anything to hide, your flat tummy will still show. very cute.
