Beautiful dress
Because it is a wrap dress you have to be careful how you sit or you will show everything. I had to wear a tank top under it because I am large chested and I didn't want the girls hanging out. Loved the dress and got so many compliments.

Classy and tailored
This dress is constructed like a suit jacket. Substantial material, drapes nicely, lined on the inside. A perfect blend of classic, formal and feminine. I wore it to a high school reunion with 60 degree outside weather and was very comfortable. The lapels were creased when it arrived so I taped them down with fashion tape. As others have mentioned, the front is low and tends to open up. I taped it also or my bra would have showed. It fit very close around the waist and hips. Ordering a size up might have helped.

So disappointed, I didn't get to wear this
I ordered up 1 size & got my normal size as the backup....but even the 1 size up didn't fit! Go up 2 sizes if you're going to rent this one or you will spend money on a dress you don't get to wear! 😕

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!

Very cute dress for work, meetings and professional events.
The neckline does fit a bit low and loose on me, so I've paired a cami underneath that works nicely. This dress hits above the knee but isn't too short for business environments. This is a very cute, professional style that can be accessorized with gold jewelry and booties for fall. I've already received many compliments on it and I'm only halfway through the day! It does open up a bit when sitting, so keep that in mind. Very comfortable and easy to wear. I wish it were my own!

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!

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:)

Wore this for my graduation and it was perfect for the occasion! Classy yet edgy and sleek.
Fit well, although a bit low in the chest. I am a 34D and I had to pin it closed so I didn't startle the parents and professors.

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!

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.

I didn't wear either dresses.
I ordered a 6 and 8 as a back-up. None fit great. 6 didn't even come close to closing and the 8 was extremely tight. The fabric is hard to move in. My bust is pretty big so I think this is meant for petite women. I didn't wear either dresses I ordered a replacement. However, RTR is awesome with replacements. There was a new dress at my door by the next morning.

Wore this dress for my birthday in the city. Received so many compliments, it was perfect!
I normally wear a size 2, ended up wearing the size 4 in this dress, runs slightly small. Had to wear shorts under it, the slit can be really revealing.

I really loved this dress! If I could afford to buy it I would.
The dress was really comfortable and figure flattering. If you're like me, and carry weight in your mid-section def order a size up, the 10 didn't button in the middle, but the 12 fit perfectly. The dress was perfect to dance in all night, great length for booty popping haha.

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!

Loved this LBD!
Wore out on an evening date. Loved that you can wrap the dress in both directions. The fabric is thick and the dress was very comfortable. The shoulders are slightly padded which I could have done without but it didn't look bad. The overall look was slimming. A great dress if you want comfort and an LBD that's a little different.

Looked great, but too big
I loved this dress but it was too big for my thin frame. Ended up pinning it in the back. The look was amazing, thought. Everyone else loved it, but I felt a little frumpy.

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!

I got styled by Kristina A. and she was amazing
I wore the dress to a business award event. The fit was perfect and was exactly what I was looking for. Sexy with class. I also purchased the Tamara Mellon heels in the NYC Flagship store after trying them on with the outfit.

Flattering!
This dress was super flattering - accentuates waist while disguising stomach. Heads up: It was slightly lower cut than I thought it would be (probably because of the wrap style), but wasn't too revealing. Will rent again!

Beautiful!
Really liked this dress! I am usually a size 2 though, and thankfully had a backup size in 4. Because 2 was definitely too small, and too short on me to be appropriate for work. I enjoyed wearing it!

Classy but sassy
This dress is a bit more difficult to maneuver when you have a full chest, but with a few safety pins, it looked gorgeous. The 4 was smaller than I anticipated and the material isn't stretchy in the slightest. It did loosen up a bit while wearing it, though. Overall, the look was sophisticated with a hint of sass.

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!

Sleek and Flattering for Date Night!
I wore this out to dinner with my fiance and received a lot of compliments. The material is very sturdy and hangs very well. I am small on top and larger through hips and seat and this dress fit perfectly. It was fitted through chest and waist and flared just slightly enough for it not to be tight in the hips. This is great for pear shapes! Be warned that while this dress looks very work-editorial it only has the two buttons pictured so make sure to wear some black hot-shorts under because, when seated, this can open. I didn't feel like it opened inappropriately when I crossed my legs but just enough to give a little peak of leg. The top had a tendency to gap so you may also want to pair this with a bandeau top. I have a feeling I will be renting this dress again!

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.

...not applicable
I returned the dress after trying it on. The double breasted cut does not work well with larger breasts. Too bad it's not offered in a size 14. I'm rating it highly because I'm sure it will look lovely on someone smaller up top.

Perfect for a fun black tie party
I really LOVE this dress. It was on my list of favorites for quite awhile and finally, it seemed a perfect choice for a black tie New Years party. I had shied away from renting this dress previously because I was afraid with a larger bust that it would bow around that area or show way too much. It actually doesn't at all. I found it to be more conservative up top than I had expected. The problem is that the dress has no give at all, so unfortunately, around my hips it was just too tight and I was afraid that I'd be uncomfortable or worse yet one of the buttons (there are no zippers on this dress, just one button on the inside and the two on the outside) would pop off. A 14 probably would have fit perfectly, so I would definitely recommend sizing up.

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.

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

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