Comfortable and Cute!
This dress was very comfortable to wear and fit true to size. The color was beautiful and the simplicity of the dress made it fun to dress it up with accessories. I received many compliments on the dress throughout the night!

Wonderful dress for a Partner Dinner
Loved this dress. I felt pretty and it was faltering to my postpartum body. Fit snug through the hips and was a bit short on me due to the fact that I have a long torso. It wasn't too short for a more conservative business event, but I did have to be mindful of bending over. No issue while sitting.

Classy and beautiful
Just a beautiful and classy dress to wear for any special occasion. I usually wear a 6 in dresses and wore a 6 here. The dress can be a bit snug in the belly department, but nothing that my good ole spanx couldn't handle and suck in for me. Overall, I loved it and would definitely rent again.

Sophistication at its finest!
Went to a wedding for my boyfriend's childhood friends held at a spectacular historical mansion on a hill. Most of the guests were in business casual or summer dresses. Not only did I receive compliments from the other guests but the bride too and she was Miss Colorado! Being in this super sophisticated Trina Turk dress was definitely a good fit. The next day I had a meet and greet where I was the one being questioned and I wore the dress again. Everyone not only took me seriously but loved my fashion sense (I am an interior designer so fashion sense is a must). Thank you RTR for a dress that fit both a wedding and a professional event!

Fun Dress with a Flare
This was my backup dress and it was cute enough on to wear out. The dress is short, but not too short for someone my height. I was worried that the sleeves would be too much, but they were fun and made the dress stand out from the norm. Definitely wear a big necklace with the dress. My larger chest size tends to require a size up for dresses and tops -- I would not have been able to zip up a size 6 in this dress, so I'm glad I went with the 8.

Such a fun dress!!!!
I loved the dress overall!! The only thing is it runs tight in the mid section. So definitely size up!! I wish I would have gone with a 12 just to have a little more room in my mid section.... but the 10 worked just fine...just a little snug. Everyone loves it though and had tons of compliments!!

Dress was great! I got a ton of compliments. It was comfortable and looked great in photos.
If you plan to do a lot of dancing (and you're tall), I wouldn't suggest this dress. It is pretty short and gets even shorter when you lift your arms up. I wore biker shorts underneath just in case. Size ran very small, especially in my booty area. If you want it to hang straight down like it does in the photo, you should order a size or two up.

A surprise 60th birthday.
I rented this as an option for a surprise 60th birthday party. It was super tight across my hips/thighs and not flattering at all on me. I opted for a different rental instead. The color is great and the style cute, just did not work for my body type.

Bright color and gorgeous sleeves
Fit is in the small side. I felt gorgeous and unique in this brightly colored dress. The sleeves made be feel very fashionable and were perfect for a boutique hotel/art museum hotel venue. It held up to a night of dancing, but it is a heavier material and a tad short.

This is a really nice dress. A little short for tall ladies!
Wore this dress for a Summer bridal shower. The fabric is thick and expensive-looking and the sleeves really make the dress pop. The only word of caution I have is for the tall/leggy ladies. It was a bit shorter than I thought it would be.

Although at first I was worried about the sleeves being too big, the dress was perfect!
I received a lot of compliments on this dress, and with this being my first RTR dress I was very happy! Now, I cannot stop renting outfits and dresses! I also initially ordered a necklace to go with it, but the dress is beautiful by itself that the necklace seemed too much. The cut, length, and sleeves were perfect and the color was gorgeous. Although I ordered this dress to wear at my college graduation knowing it would be under a gown, people loved it and it looked great in our family photographs and at dinner.

Great Cocktail Dress!
I had a baby eight months ago, and was attending a Midwest wedding in July where it was more than a hundred degrees out. None of my cocktail dresses were going to hold up in that, or allow me any access to pump (as I'm still nursing). I ordered this Trina Turk and was SO pleased. The material has good structure to hang well as a shift, but was not too warm. The lining was comfortable and the zipper back was very accessible (no help needed - making it pumping friendly). I'm fairly short, and I felt like the length was just about perfect. I adored the color and the sleeves, and think they really turn the dress into something cute. Rather than a chunky necklace, I went with a longer lariat style necklace and pave studs to be a little more formal. Definitely runs pretty true to size - I'm a full busy normally and even more so with nursing, so expected to wear the 12 - but the 10 was comfortable and more flattering. Paired it with floral heels and got tons of compliments!

Perfect rehearsal dinner dress for a September wedding in NYC!
The fit was true to form, it was a little short but I also have longer legs. I love the way Trina Turk dresses fit my body type, the color was pretty and bright. It looked great with gold accessories.

Statement sleeves
This is a high quality dress, true to size, and a beautiful color. It would be perfect if you have a statement necklace! My boyfriend did not like the sleeves so I will not wear it for a fancy date like I had planned. I would recommend it if big sleeves are your taste. I may have worn it to a girls thing if there was time but I will return it before then. I am very satisfied with my RTR experience overall though and ordered another dress that I will definitely wear to a wedding on Saturday night!

Everything About This Dress
I loved how this dress fit. It definitely agree with other reviews on the length. I was expecting it to be short based on other reviews, but I still was a bit shocked with how short it was because looking at pictures it didn't seem that short. As long as you're mindful of that it's still very easy to maneuver. It was the perfect combination of fitting snug against your body but also giving you plenty of room to breathe. The sleeves also made it fun! I wore it to a wedding in San Francisco and didn't have a jacket, and still didn't freeze even though it was cold and windy.

I was 22 weeks pregnant, and this dress fit perfectly! I had to size up 2 sizes from pre-pregnancy
The dress had just enough stretch to compliment a growing baby bump. Loved it! For reference, I am 5'4'' and was around 135 lbs and 22 weeks pregnant at the time of this photo.

Not a great fit for hourglass/pear
I love the look of this dress but unfortunately couldn't wear it. I read the reviews and even sized up for my back up, but the back up size was still way too tight in the hips. Of course RTR was fabulous and overnighted a backup dress to replace this one!

Stunning in person
Beautifully made dress. The material is a nice medium weight. Very luxurious! I'm sad I wasn't able to actually wear it. The cut of this dress is not great for pear shaped women. The top section was fine but the bottom section was very tight. I opted to not wear the dress. I would suggest going up a size or two when ordering if you're pear shaped.

Cute!
Cute dress, comfortable for sure because it's roomy - a zero is usually perfect on me but I think because this is a baggies dress it probably runs a bit large.. Cute the sleeves are a nice detail and the color is pretty - not a life changing dress but it's cute with a good heel and a nice chunky necklace!

A little small for my pregnant bump
Didn't end up wearing this. Rented this thinking it would be like a shift dress and would hide my bump but it was actually quite snug in the waist even in the 8. Definetly more form fitting then a shift dress

Great for a wedding!! Everyone liked that as well as the jewelry I wore!
I ordered a 6 and an 8. Wore the 6 because the 8 was too long in the torso. If fit perfectly!! If anything, I would suggest getting the size your normally wear along with the next smaller size. It was perfect :-)

I love all the pictures of me and my loved ones while I was wearing this dress!
I wore this for my bridal shower. I wow'd. I looked and felt great. The color and the butterfly sleeves were perfect for standing out on my special day. I'm a size 12 and that's the size I ended up wearing. I You can dress it up with a great statement necklace or embellished earrings. I opted for the earrings. It was comfortable to sit in all day. A little short when I sat down, so just be mindful of that.

Great Dress!! Couldn't be happier.
Wore this to a charity gala- it fit great and covered any bad tan lines on shoulder. Dress was a little short but otherwise it was awesome. The sleeves were great but don't carry a shoulder bag it will cover them.

Sassy Conservative on the Top & Sexy Party on the Bottom
I wasn't so sure about this dress when I first put it on. I felt like I belonged in the church choir from the waist up but loved how the dress hugged my butt and showcased my legs. I was worried about the New Orleans heat and humidity being too much to handle with the sleeves, but the material was just fine for a warm evening. The dress was comfortable to wear, although quite short. The compliments I received once arriving to the party/networking event put me at ease. The dress was a hit. Not sure if I'd rent it a second time... Feel like it was more of a one hit wonder for me, but I sure had a good time wearing it!

simple and pretty dress. wore it to a gala, my mid section is my trouble area so it wasn't as loose as i hoped it to be..but if i went up another size, it would have looked like a moomoo on me lol! gorgeous color and keep in mind the dress is short, so if your hips are wide or booty is big..size up! Check out my full video review for my full thoughts and experience. good luck!

Beautiful color and great shape!
I wore this to a friend's wedding and, to no surprise, RTR made me one happy girl again. I loved the color of this dress and the style of it. It's a little short (but still long enough to throw your arms up in the air while dancing with no cheeks showing ;) ) but the sleeves add a really nice touch to where you feel sexy but still classy. I would definitely wear it again. Tip: Definitely pair it with a statement necklace
