Great dress - very comfortable and easy to wear.

Very chic dress for work event. Flattering and flows and easy to adjust if you want it to be tighter using the front ties. I loved this!

Runs way too big

This dress may have been great but it ran WAY too big. It wasn't even an option once I put it on, no matter how badly I wanted it to work. Size down for sure!!!!

Runs large but is amazing

I love this dress and have no idea why it has so many negative reviews other than the fact that it does run quite large and you should size down at least one size if not 2. The fabric is thick and flattering. Particularly for an hourglass shape. The 10 was really big on me but didn't look horrible. I ordered again in an 8 and it was still large. Will get a 6 when I order again.

Runs a touch large. Heavier material and better for Fall or Winter.

Just No...all wrong.

Runs large, I am a 4-6. Totally awkward drape and elastic (non)waist. My husband said No, don't wear it, I knew already but it was reinforcement to bag and ship this dress right back. Did not wear.

Not for petites

Heavy tablecloth like fabric. Cute front tie detail but not for the shorter people. It swallows you up

Runs large

I am usually a 14 with wide hips and this was still too big for me. I would go down a size.

Loved this dress - very flattering

I received tons of compliments on this dress. Very flattering for an hourglass shape. I do think the top portions runs a bit big. I almost always have issues with buttons pulling but did not in this dress. I will definitely rent this again

Pretty dress but too big

In larger sizes this dress runs similar to true to size plus sizes. I thought I would need to size up but definitely didn't. New to RTR so getting the hang of sizing.

Liked it

I really liked this dress, but I think I should have ordered one size smaller. It ran a little big in my opinion.

Has a lot of potential, but need to size down

The style and feel of this dress are really nice (hence the 4 stars), but it ran large so it became unflattering and I was unable to wear. Having an apple shape, I do tend to size up in dresses, but that was definitely a mistake here. The top is full and the material is a bit bulky, so using the tie waste to make up for the added size doesn't really work on this one. I think the best bet would be to pick the size that is on the smaller end of your lower body size, as it seems there is more flexibility at the top and the skirt really needs to be fitted. Sadly, it is going back unworn but I may try again in a size (or two) smaller.

I tried the dress on and it is really drab. Also, the dress is runs large.

The dress was shapeless and drab.

This dress was just...OK.

Dress runs large. I'm between a 10 and 12, the 12 was too big Had to tie in the back. The fabric is heavier than I expected. The collar is a bit large and retro-looking. I made it work, though.

Comfortable and chic

I am a standard size 8, and the fit was perfect through the bust/hip, however it was at least 1 size too large in the waist. You are able to tie the dress a few ways, one of which allows for a more curve hugging silhouette, however you are left with some extra fabric. I dont know if this is something others noticed, but it felt strange while wearing. The fabric is heavy, so not ideal for warmer weather.

Nice easy work dress. Runs large.

I'm so glad i ordered down. I am usually a 4 or a 6 and i ordered the 2 and it was still a little big. I wore a nightie slip under it for a little extra coverage up top. Very nice dress, elegant, nice material. I received lots of compliments.

Didn't wear the dress. The fabric was weird and felt cheap.

Fit was okay.

Cute tie waist

I should have ordered my true size of an 18 but I was skeptical at the sizing and ordered a 20. It has a dropped shoulder and super cute tie waist detail. Paired with sneakers to keep this shirt dress casual.

Order true to size!

The dress is super flattering and great for everyday to work. Order your true size because I took a size up because of my hips and it wasn't as flattering as it would have been if I took the right size.

gorgeous dressy fabric

Love this dress but it didnt work for me. If I could have made a small alteration, it would have happened. The belt placement on my midsection was not flattering. It would have worked, f I could have raised the belt by an inch. This is a nice cocktail dress or evening wedding dress.
