Rented this dress for dinner with my parents. Runs a size big and recommend ordering a size down. I wore the 0 and this does not come in a 00 so belted it to cinch in the waist. Plenty of room in the hip/thigh area. Best for pear/hourglass shapes. Would be so cute on a curvier figure.

STYLIST REVIEW!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Fantastic dress by Theory! Love this for during the day or could toss on with black tights and black booties for night. Would be great with a big necklace and fun bag. It runs slightly tight in the bust, I didn't feel as though I needed to wear a bra with the dress. Would size up if you are biggest int he bust.

A classy & comfortable dress

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Threw this in as a second style option, ended up wearing it instead because I loved it so much. Classy and comfortable, fit exactly as expected. Received tons of compliments and danced all night with no issues. The fabric is a bit thicker, so might not be best for summer events, but was fine for outdoor April wedding (in NC).

I got this as a back up dress and didn't end up wearing it to the event so I decided to wear it to work and get some use out of it. It worked perfectly with a black cardigan and fit great even though I was sitting at my desk all day!

Very weird in the chest.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
Unfortunately, this dress didn't work out for me. I tried 2 different sizes and everything fit very well except for in the chest. I don't have a large chest but it still smashed them down and pushed extra boobage into the arm area or down towards my navel. Was so so close to being a flattering dress, but unfortunately, it was not wearable for me.

Very classy dress with a funky, fun print

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I wore this for my friend's bridal shower and got a lot of compliments because the size and fit are very classy - the sleeves give it a nice shape and its very structured and very high quality but the print is really striking and funky and has a lot of personality. i paired this dress with bright yellow shoes. I'm short so I was nervous the dress would be too long on my but the 0 was at the perfect length. The only issue perhaps is that its pretty tight in the chest area. My boobs were actually pretty squashed.

I had a free birthday rental and got this dress to wear to work and then to dinner out. It was super cute, but the fit was a bit uncomfortable in the chest/bust. It was a little tight when I tried to raise my arms. However, I got complimented on it and the fabric was really nice.

The size 2 fit me, however It looked like I had two sets up boobs because it was very tight on chest, so I had to go the with size 4. Overall, really pretty dress.

Chest flattener. Not flattering.

Size worn: NONE
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This fabric was comfortable. The fit of the body was true to size. I am a 36B in the bust and it was extraordinarily tight to the point of unflattering FLATTENING my chest. I chose not to wear it rather than concern myself with that complication all night.

Doubled up and wore this to a party and a work event

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
Agree with many other reviewers that this dress fit a bit weird in the chest as it pushed my girls down. I am normally a 10 but felt like I needed the 12 particularly due to the fit in the chest. Otherwise, it was a really cute dress with a great fit. I forgot to snap a photo, but I wore the dress twice - with a colorful necklace, black jacket and nude pumps for a work event and without the jacket to a party.

I loved the pattern of this dress and that you could dress it up or down depending on your event. That said, this dress did not work for my body. Unfortunately it was unflattering due to my busy size. Wish it had worked out though....

Nice not too dressy dress

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Date
I wanted a not too fancy dress for a summer dinner date. It fit the bill for that. It was a nice material (heavier than expected) that did not wrinkle. While not fitted in the hip/butt area, it does run smaller than I expected. I usually wear a 2, but went with the 4 to have a little more room.

I wore this dress to my friend's rehearsal dinner, and it fit great. I normally wear a 4, and this was very true to size. I wore a black belt - the pattern needs some breaking up, but overall a great rental!!

This dress is NOT for a curvy person. The size 4 and 6 fit fine on top but getting it to pass my thighs was not happening. Really disappointed since I was looking forward to wearing this dress.

Very cute dress, but didn't fit quite right

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
This was my free birthday dress rental. I didn't really have firm plans but thought I'd wear it if the opportunity came up. Loved the dress and material, but the fit was just off. Normally I wear a 10/12 in RTR dresses so that was what I rented (plus, a 14 was not available for this dress). The 12 fit me, but it was very tight on the bottom and very big on the top. I am petite and definitely curvier in the hips with small shoulders, but usually the fit difference between the top and bottom isn't this bad for me. I could have made the 12 work with spanx but decided not to bother.

Just Ok

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Date
The dress is ok. It's a great fabric and the print is wonderful. However, the cut and fit of the dress left me underwhelmed. I'm a 36 DD and this definitely gave me the "pancake boob" even though I sized up. The sexiness factor on this is pretty low. I would recommend this for an office party or a casual day event. Would not recommend this for hour glass figures.

I ended up not wearing this dress, only because it just wasn't very flattering on me.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Dress is really cute, unfortunately if you have wide shoulders or much of a chest at all, this dress just isn't for you. The cap sleeves were not flattering at all, but might look cute on someone with a petite frame. I fit into both the 4 and 6, but the 4 was too tight on my chest. The 6 just wasn't flattering, so I ended up not wearing this dress.

Great for a work related open house!

Size worn: 2
Rented for: Party
The dress was perfect for a professional setting. I wore it for a Holiday open house at my workplace and the dress was comfortable. The only downside was the sleeves dug into my arm/arm pit whenever I'd life my arms or extend them. 2 days later I have red marks!! The length was appropriate for the event and the pattern on the dress is very versatile.

The dress was way small. I wear a lot of Theory clothes, all size 2 but this one simply did not fit! Everything was tight for me. The dress is very structured and you have to be really skinny to wear. Not recommended for curvy women.

This dress is great for the straight & narrow. I'm a little curvy and could barely breath with the bust fit, but loved the dress so much I suffered through it. It was definitely too short on me to wear to a work event. Perfect for a shower or wedding.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I loved this dress so much that I wish I could buy it! The length was perfect and it looks great with a colorful statement necklace. The cap sleeves are also very flattering. I have an athletic build so I was worried about the sizing in my torso area. I had read to go a size down so I got a 6 and a 4, but the 6 fit perfectly. So happy I chose this dress!

The fit runs small but at 5' 9" was still appropriate for business. I wore with a blazer for the day time and it was a perfect transition to dinner and drinks. It was difficult to sit down at first but the material eventual stretched enough to sit comfortably.

I thought the dress would have more movement. I don't have a large midsection, but this dress made it look like I did with the way it hugged me. Unless you don't have much of an hourglass shape, opt for a different dress.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size

Wore this dress for Easter and it fit perfectly. The size 0 and 2 both fit but I ended up with the 2 because the 0 was a little tight in the armpit and bust area. The dress fit really well and was flattering in the waist. The dress is a good length if you are 5'4" (though I did feel the 0 was a little shorter). Looks really nice with a bright necklace or with a bright cardigan if its a little chillier out. Can be worn with or without tights and a regular bra which I love.

I hated to send this back! I absolutely love this dress, especially for early Spring. I wore it to a daytime outdoor event, but it would be appropriate for anything from a Sunday brunch to an evening wedding! Some reviews said it ran small, but for me it was pretty true to size. It doesn't have any stretch to it though so keep that in mind.

Too small, wore a smaller sized different dress

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
This was surprisingly small. It was a back up, so that was fine, but the dress I ended up wearing was a Kate Spade size 6. Also, the dress is unlined so the back side of the textured fabric is right up against you. I was pretty surprised by that. It's a cute dress, but I would have needed a larger size and some sort of slip/spanx to make it comfortable.

I loved the dress. It was super flattering and I received quite a few compliments on it! I wore with a black cardigan for a very chilly baby shower, but took off the cardigan. It was slimming and pretty. The arms were a little tight, but I'm sensitive about my arms anyway... and it was definitely "worn" but I don't think others noticed that. I would actually like to purchase this style if I could!

I did not wear this dress because it was uncomfortably tight in the bust and shoulder area. My usual size 2 fit perfectly except for this area. The 4 was still tight up top and too big in the waist and hips. Cute dress, but not for me.
