Great professional look!

It fits beautifully! I'm a little busty (32DDD) so it pulls near the chest but otherwise is great! I can comfortably lift gowns all day (I sell wedding gowns) and it doesn't make the dress too short anywhere. When sitting, it does part a little high so watch that! :) Very happy with this! Definitely recommend!

The dress was beautiful

The dress was beautiful and I got good compliments on it. It was big in the chest area and when I sat down my legs were a tad too exposed but overall it was sexy, classy, and cute. I'll definitely be renting again

Adorable!

It fits true to size and hit right above my knee, unlike the photo, because I'm much shorter than the model pictured. It's so cute and I got so many compliments. I paired it with black hose and booties and it was perfect for the semi-casual event!

Not for me

My expectations weren't met with this dress. Not for girls with large busts. I ended up not wearing it.

Unique and stylish

The dress looks better in person. I thought I would wear the 4 but the 2 fit so much better and hugged my waist better. I didn't like the opening of the dress underneath the buttons. When you sit down the split opens up and exposes a lot of leg. I wouldn't recommend renting this if you are going to be sitting on a stage or sitting without a table. Other than that the dress is beautiful.

Classy but sexy black dress!

This dress was a classy dress with a sexy touch! I wore it to a bridal shower. I wore a size 2, which is my usual dress size, however this dress was a tad bit big in the chest and upper body area. I don't think a size zero would have been better because it might have been too tight overall, but it would have been nice to have a zero for my back up size instead of the size 4 just to see. It is a sneaky low cut, so be careful! I just wore my bra and I was fine for the most part. Also, there is a not much coverage at the bottom of the dress, the slit opens wide when you sit down so be careful! Overall a great dress!

Loving the tuxedo look!

Overall a good fit! A little loose in the bust area, nothing some fashion tape can't fix! Also, I was not a big fan of the shoulder pads. Wish they were removable but I made due. Look fab with my Stuart Weitzman thigh highs which was my ultimate goal. Got lots of compliments!

Wore this to a hanger party paired with black strappy heels. Everyone loved it! It shows off a perfect amount of cleavage too!

Awkward on bust

I wanted to love this dress but it was just too tight. The top was also too big on my bust which led to the collar coming too high up on my shoulders.

Fun work dress

Loved the style of this dress for work - it's super fun and different. One thing to be aware of the dress parts at the front quite high when you sit down- some people may not like that. I def will rent again though!

Runs super small

I rented this dress to be worn as a dress and sized up like everyone told me to however no one said to go up 2 sizes ... so I couldn't wear it as a dress so instead I wore it as a vest/ slvless jacket with white jeans and it was adorable!!!!! Will rent again but will size up 2 sizes to wear as a dress:)

So many compliments!

Cute dress. It is a little bigger in the chest area. I had to pin it so it wasn't wide open - but if you have a bad her bust, you'll be fine. Still got so many compliments from everyone at work -- and it easily transitioned to after work drinks / happy hour!

Super cute!

I really liked it but I'm usually between a 4-6 and got the 6 and it was too big, especially on top which is normal for me, but because of this it was gaping on me in the chest area. Wish I had gotten a 4. Otherwise super comfy and stylish!

WAY too short

Do NOT rent this dress if you're hoping to wear it to work. There is nothing keeping the dress closed below that second button, so when you sit or if there is the slightest breeze, the dress falls open, exposing far too much. I was so uncomfortable that I left the office and went home to put another dress underneath it and ended up wearing this as a long vest over the other dress! Shame, since I love the style!

It fit nicely. I wore a tshirt underneath so i wouldnt show alot of cleavage. Be careful when sitting the slit hikes it up. Nice combination of cute and professional.

Sophisticated LBD with a flair!

I loved this dress because it was a great change from a "dress" with the blazer/military jacket front. I'm a 34DD and wore the 0, so there was no room for a bra and the girls sat perfectly ;)...until the top button popped at the end of the night! Luckily there was an inside button to hold things together, but definitely something to keep in mind if you're on the bustier side up top. I also really liked the length because it wasn't super short and balanced the revealing neckline. Will rent again!

It fit ok but a little tight at the ribs area. It kind of has a crease because of it

Work Edit Edition

I thought this dress was cute for work. I had to wear a shirt underneath, otherwise I would have been exposed. I paired this outfit with another RTR shirt. I received so many compliments! Only complaint is that I was very self conscious sitting because the slit opens a lot.

THE BEST

Loved this dress! I wore it to a concert with friends and had a blast. I also wore it for a photo shoot with a turtleneck, tights, and ankle booties. Super cute layering option. I had to pin the hem so that it wouldn't open while sitting but otherwise it's a great piece. Also note that the top was a little big for me- normal with my shape. If you're pear shape go with the upper of your two normal sizes.

Who needs a suit!

Great alternative to the boring suit. I put a sheer body suit beneath it for coverage on top. There is no closure by the leg opening so beware of a thigh reveal when you are sitting if you are not careful.

AMAZING PIECE

Couldn't love this suit more!!! Found so many excuses to keep it for more time. Wore it I think 3 times before I sent it back. Once with strappy heels to work. Another time with booties and the last time with the look I have on here. It's a dress! Although a lot of people thought it was a romper. It was a great length for me, but I'm very short. So keep the length in mind. I'm also very flat chested and it worked for this look! Couldn't recommend it more!!! Want to buy.

Unfortunately, I ordered a size up (6) & it was too large in the bust area for me. I was unable to wear this. I would definitely order the smaller size for another time!!

Great Dress for Work, but Need to Watch Cleavage

I wore this dress to work with a blazer. I think it was likely a bit big for me as it only buttons at the waist. When wearing this dress, you need to be careful with the openings around the chest and legs to make sure the fabric doesn't slip and over expose you.

Cute dress, but big in the bust

I'm a size 8 in most dresses but this dress is made for women with a larger bust than I have and smaller hips. I did not end up wearing it because it gaped too much in the bust area for me.

Cool dress, runs large!

I wear a 6 or an 8, depending on the designer/store, but the 8 was a tent on me! Very cool dress, edgy and interesting. Size down if you rent.
