felt athletic, sexy and most importantly comfortable
Fit was great, really shows off overall figure and shoulders and arms without hugging bottom half.

I purchased this dress from the clearance sale and wore it when my rentals did not fit.
i wore this to a wedding in lieu of the three dresses that i had rented as none of them fit well enough. it was sublime, and true to size, if a bit unforgiving of bumps, and bulges.

So gorgeous! The material is beautiful and the back is so sexy!
I recommend wearing 'cutlets' or something to cover the chest and add shape if you are smaller chested.

Loved the color and the fit!
I am only 4'11" so I anticipiated the dress would be longer on me than on the model, but it was exactly what I was looking for. The 0 fit me better on top, because I am more pettite in that area. But I went with the 2 which was just right for my curvier lower portion. Very comfortable! And lots of compliments to boot!

Chic And Comfortable
I wore this to a nice, but not formal, outdoor wedding in the South in May. Yes, it looked great and the back is amazing but the best part of this dress was how comfortable I was. The jersey is soft and breathable and with its high neck and just below the knee length, I could easily get down on the dance floor without worrying about flashing anyone, pulling up straps, etc. As for styling, from the front it's fairly simple looking so I paired it with a chunky necklace and a pair of Rachel Comey shoes to spice it up.

I felt beautiful!
Easy, TTS fit. Flattering and simple. I'm tall so the skirt hit just above the knee, but may be a little too long if you're petite. LOVED this dress.

It was a great color and the top fit well
It was a little long , hit way below the knees. So if that's the length you want great and I'm 5'10"

Easy elegance
This dress looks intimidating because of the snug fit of the fabric but it was super comfortable and flattering! The length hit me at mid-calf so if you're shorter this may not work for you. Also can't wear any type of normal bra so take that into consideration too. Overall loved this!

Sunday brunch, but wore another choice.
Rented for a Sunday brunch date at Geoffreys in Malibu as my backup. Nice dress? Material was thinner than expected. Fit seemed true to size on both the 8 and 10. Decided to wear my 1st choice - Herve Leger.

Constant compliments!
I really like this dress though I must have ordered a size larger, it was a little big around the bust for me. Otherwise, the cut, the color and the length were exactly what I was looking for. I received constant compliments all night long!

I love the style but it didn't work for me.
At 5' I was too short waisted for this style. Neither the size 0 or 2 worked.

Wore this to a fundraiser & was super comfy.
TIBI always fits me great...i always know what size to order. it is a tight fit. This is a perfect dress for women that are petite & want the long look.

Beautiful color, back
I wore this dress for a wedding in the summer. I loved the color and the back of the dress- looked great with a tan, it was just a bit long and ran a little large in the bust on me. I did receive quite a few compliments, mostly on the back of the dress. All and all, happy with it, just wished it had been a little more fitted in the bust.

Unless you are super slim
I am a medium size person (4-6 size, 5'7", 135 pds, pear shapped) and i did not find it wearable.. you need to be super super fit and slim for it to look good on you. The material is very thin, and every single "imperfection" will pop to sight.. spanx are hard to wear given how thin the material is. If you have a ballerina type of body, def go for it, if now i woudl advise you to set something else.

The last time I rented a dress it didn't fit. This time I selected two dresses so I would have a back up option. I was very happy it worked out!
I wore this dress to a wedding in Key West and I got compliments all night. It is easy to dress up with jewelry and the back is fun. The dress is not forgiving, so plan on wearing spanxs!

nubra definitely needed
I didn't end up wearing this because I didn't have the appropriate undergarments; nubra is definitely needed. I had a backless strapless tape-on bra whose lines showed through the material. I decided not to wear it b/c I didn't want to be inappropriate at a wedding! It is a lovely dress though. I'm 5'8" and it hit at the bottom of the knee. Wish I had listened to the other reviewers!

This was my first time using RTR - I would definitely recommend the site and use it again.
I wore this dress to a friends daughters wedding. It was so comfortable. I am 5'6" and it hit me mid calf. I took the advice and wore the NuBra (which actually works - to my surprise)! The color is navy that looks deep purple yet if you put it near purple it would look navy. It fits close the 8 fit but the 10 was much more flattering. I felt sexy and classy at the same time.

Stylist Review!
This dress was amazing! It is very form fitting, and hugs the body in all the right places. I would probably size up in back up, especially if you are curvier! This dress hit me in the middle of my calf. It is great for any cup size, you will need to wear a NuBra with it. Overall, a really easy and sophisticated dress!

Love!
This dress is classy in the front, and sexy in the back! There wasn't much of a difference between the 4 & 6. I found the color to be more of a periwinkle than blue as it appears in the photo. Undergarments are tricky - panty lines show but the NuBra works well. I'd definitely rent again for a classy evening I'd like to punch up with touch of sex appeal.

I'm 5'11 - where did the dress hit you?

This dress runs 43'' from shoulder to hem, so it would be a bit below the knee on heights above 5'9"

Work It!
I felt so sassy in this dress and received so many compliments! I wore it to a birthday party and my friends went nuts when I walked in. The navy jersey has a bit of sheen, is fitted, and hugs curves because of this combo proper undergarments are a must! I wore a NuBra and wore Commando underwear. I don't think you could wear Spanxs. You will need something that sits very flat. Because I am 5'5 the dress hit me under my knees. I paired it was a tall black strappy wedge and the Gilded Lucite Bangle by Alexis Bittar. This is one of those dresses that I would rent over and over again.

You say you're 5'5" and the dress hit below the knees. I LOVE this style, but I'm 5'2" (I'd get the dress altered if I owned it). Do you think the length would look cheesy on a person shorter than you?
RTRJune 4, 2012
Hi Tina, this dress is 43'' from shoulder to hem. Take a quick measurement to see if you'd feel comfortable with the dress at more of a tea length! You can also use temporary Hollywood Fashion hem tape to tuck the dress a few inches- just remember to remove the tape before your return!
