Almost awesome

I love this fabric and print! However, this dress runs ENORMOUS. Unless my size 2 is mislabeled and should be an extra-tall XXXL, I'm serious. It's super-duper-wide, and the ties are down to the floor. Also the ties are at hip-height. You can be creative and twist and wrap them up around your waist but everything bunches and it doesn't quite lay right no matter what. So it's stuck being very boxy and casual, and I needed to tie the ties in a full-on bow to avoid stepping on them. Still, I sorta love it. Not flattering, not professional, not "cute," but it's got something...

Way too big size down 2 sizes

Cute pattern looks like an oversized men's shirt w a tie at the waist to make it flattering but was way too big

Cute pattern, disappointing cut.

I love the pattern on this dress, but unfortunately it looks much better with studio lighting & on the model. The bright colors fall a bit short in person. The tie is located awkwardly & uncomfortably low and provides literally no shape whatsoever. I was hoping it would cinch at the waist to accentuate some curves, but that's simply not possible. If you've got larger hips like me, I would not recommend this dress as the tie falls at the hips and makes the fit of the dress look odd.

Sizing is way off

I went down a size based on another reviewer's recommendation, and this dress was still way too big. I think a 4 may have worked, but I don't know if it would be worth trying to rent again. It was also really wrinkled so I just immediately shipped it back.

Runs large

I'm usually an 18 on top and a 20 on bottom. Usually shirt dresses are a little snug around the mid section and booty so I ordered a 22 and it was HUGE on me. Will return for an 18. So big the waist ties were around the lower part of my butt (I'm 5'6"). Petite women may have an issue with where the ties sits. Hope the 18 fits better bc it's a cute casual dress.

A little off but cute in theory

Love the print of this dress and the idea of it but it's very oversized and he belt sits way too low.

It's not the size, it's the style!

It's not that it runs large, but it's kimona-esqué styling. I love this dress! It's comfortable, and quite flattering to a big girl like me; the fabric is lovely. Not quite sure how to tie the sash, but I'll experiment!

Large but kind of still in charge

I can see how this piece would be challenging. It's oversized and takes some finesse to wrap. I think on the RTR site it looks more fitted than it is in person. Personally, I love that it's loose and can be tied in different ways, though I'm sure some renters will be annoyed by this since it's less of a "throw on and go" situation.

...

I adore this dress. Very unassuming from the pictures. Very comfortable, super light weight and thin, but not sheer fabrics. Loose around the arms which was fabulous. I love this as an everyday dress. Would purchase if it's wasn't over $400 ;)

I love this dress. Runs a bit large.

This dress is so fun! I typically wear a 6 in dresses but went with a 4 due to reviews. The 4 fit perfectly. The tie allows you to adjust how tightly the dress fits around your waist. Lots and lots of compliments.

Different - baggy - cool!

It runs big - but it is supposed to. The dress is really original, kind of weird, and I thought it was awesome. It's something different and cool. Even though it's more avant-garde, it's comfortable, simple to style, fits well, and is very easy to wear.

Boxy and subdued

I actually like the tomboyish feel to this dress. You won't need to worry about bra straps showing or anything being too tight. It's comfy, goes well with cute sneaks or colorful mules for a casual summer day look.

Comfy and Cute

This dress is really cozy. Should be worn when it's not too hot out. Runs large. I could've gone a size down. Lots of compliments though. Recommended.

Weird but amazing

I picked this out in the store, I couldn't find a size on it so just grabbed the one that looked closest to my size. I'm typically a 12/14. This one is actually a 6, which is not at all close to a size that should fit me. It even fits over my 36F chest without gaping. Got a ton of compliments. Will hang on to it for a while, a great summer dress.

This made me stylish.

It's a boxy fitting dress, but the tie at the waist adds some shape back. It's a really casual, but stylish piece. I styled it with sneakers. I received quite a few compliments. This is a piece I would want to own! No real cons. BUT, the front tie wouldn't stay tightly tied and I had to readjust it a couple of times. Given how oversized it is, you could probably go down a size for a better fit.

It looked so cute on others but I just couldn't figure out how to make it for me. Would possibly rent again and try again since I have unlimited.

I should have ordered down but I wore it anyway. It fits very loose but is such a cool dress. Bright jewelry and shoes made it a hit at work.

This runs HUGE. I normally wear a 16, and this 12 was even big on me. Regardless, I loved it. Light fabric, super comfortable with that effortlessly put together vibe. Really liked it.

Excellent transitional dress

I rented this dress for meetings in Las Vegas. I wanted something that could be warm enough for air conditioning but cool enough for 90degree heat in the evenings. This dress did the trick! Pros: loved the light cotton fabric weight- it was like thick gauze. Also loved the print. Cut was forgiving and cute from front. Cons: cut was not cute from side- just a short dress shape. Fabric had no stretch and wrinkled a bit. The cons didn't bother me -pros outweighed! I styled this with a pair of hot pink rockstud flats and a hot pink pashmina.

I Hated This Dress, Until I Put It On

Took a risk getting this. Rented it for a med school graduation brunch and ceremony. Knew I needed to be comfy and chic. Wanted to be more LA with a laid back style. Got this in the mail and was resigned to just return it. But I stepped out in faith and brought it with me anyway. This is my testimony because I was so sure I would look like an unmade bed. Wouldn't you know people kept complimenting me on it all day!? I paired it with metallic flats and lots of arm candy. Was very pleased with the way it photographed and wore all day.

So many compliments

I wore this dress to work and happy hour. It's a gorgeous lightweight linen. You can tie the front loose for a more draped look or tighter to accentuate your waistline. I love everything I have rented from Tome and I might have to buy this dress.

Fun and unusual

It's linen so iron or stream it for the best look. Comfortable, maybe not great on curvier figures because of the dropped waist. But it's a great print and fun for a day.

House Coat Chic left me cold

Tome Black Printed Shirtdress 100% Cotton Size 16 (I tend to wear size 18) I wanted so badly to like this dress but felt it just looked like a bathrobe on me. Others say it runs large and I agree. The details say the dress has an hourglass fit but even with the attached waist tie style built the dress did nothing for my apple figure. I never wore it anywhere.

Gray dress for hot weather

I wore this dress in above 100° weather and was totally comfortable. This fabric breathes easily and it was great that it wasn't super fitted. The short sleeves are a bit longer and I would recommend rolling them up at least once.

This drop waist shirt dress drops jaws

I've honestly never received so many compliments on a dress from random strangers. I would never have said I drop waist dress in general would flatter my body shape, but this shirt dress is a tad over-sized, light material perfect for spring and summer, and created a flattering silhouette. The really funky print was fun, and I wore the dress / collar all the way buttoned up for a hipster vibe.

Unique pattern and cut

I love this dress. Wore it a few times. Lots of compliments. The length of the belt is awkward and I found I had to retie it constantly. I'm usually a size 4-6 and I was able to fit comfortably in the 2, however the proportion of wear the waist ties was a bit awkward. So I would recommend sizing down just 1 size.

Fun Sunday Dress

Loved this dress!! Not my normal style, but loved it for a casual Sunday afternoon! Runs really big so definitely size down at least one size. I'm 5' 4", and it came right below the knee, but with the drop waist tie, it pulled it all together! Would definitely rent again!

I didn't wear this dress

Very loose and shapeless, which is usually a good thing, but there's a belt that hangs low on the hip that made this dress unflattering on me.

Stylish and out of this work!

When I saw pictures of this dress I was really skeptic. I decided to go with it though since I vowed I'd try things out of my comfort zone. I'm glad I did. This dress is very flattering. The print is modern and hip, and I love that this is stylish without trying too hard. I can't wait to wear this to work and for my date with my hubby!

Fun dress

This was a fun casual dress to wear. It reminds me of something Ms. Frizzle would wear in her off time. I was skeptical it would be very flattering but the reviews convinced me to try it and I'm glad I did. Usually I'm a large 16 and rented the 14 in this which worked, but a 12 probably would have been better.
