Designer dresses available at affordable prices!
This dress is fierce in person!! Beautiful variegated colors. I wore this to a wedding with black heels and minimal jerwerly, let the dress do the talking! Runs very tight thru the hip area!!! I always wear a size 0, good thing I order the free backup size...I wore the size 2 instead because it was more comfortable sitting. I would highly recommend this dress if you want to impress!

Less stunning in person than in the photos here and could not fit over my hips! No stretch in this dress. Too bad because I had really been looking forward to wearing it!

The is a botton to close the front. At first I thought it was to open but when I close it with the button it was plunging but not too much

the fabric and color is amazing in person. it has a tweed like material with shimmer. i'm normally a 2 or 4 but ended up wearing the 4 since it runs very narrow in the hips. luckily, i'm a 32c and was able to fit the bust with a padded bra. if not, it will fit weird. fun mini dress

Fantastic dress. The material surprised me - wool with larger piles across the darker areas. There is also less stretch in the fabric, so anticipate a closer, less flexible fit around the tush. The dress stood up against an evening of heavy dancing and still looked great when I hung it up at the end of the night.

The dress was a bit of a disappointment. I would recommend this dress to those who are petite because the proportions are off for a curvy person like myself. I'm a size 6 and I could barely fit into a size 8 for this particular dress. The dress was also a little loose in the bust even though the waist area fit snugly. The look wasn't flattering and the material was a bit cheap looking in person.

This dress was weird. I'm 105 lbs, 34C and it was tight on my hips and chest but too loose on my waist. The fabric was also fluffier than I expected.

Such an amazing dress!!!
This dress was perfect for the Christmas party. It fit a little small in size 0 throughout the rear so I'm glad I ordered size 2 as well. I received lots of compliments. I felt so classy and sexy all night.

Great Christmas pictures!!!
There is glittery threading woven in through out and it looks great in pictures! The only downside is it is not stretchy at all! Order a size up if you have larger hips.

Small on bottom, but hot!
It is very fun and unique. The black stretchy side panels are more prominent than they appear in the photo. The dress is made of a wooly fabric and is fully lined, so its warm. And it runs very small through the hips- if you have a curvy rear, this dress might not work for you. I ordered a size up, and the dress was a little tight on the bottom (still ok) but the top was a little loose (I'm smaller-busted). As an alternative, I love the Lela Rose Galaxy Tweed dress which I also rented- a much more generous fit and very similar fabric, but a more conservative cut.

Beautiful!
I wore this for a summer wedding. I received a lot of compliments. The fabric feel like linen and the shiny part is threading woven into the dress. The only problem I had was that it was narrow in the hips and it had no stretch. I loved the color!

I was very pleased with this dress. It paired great with accessories and a blazer that I already owned.
This dress was amazing.. I suggest going a size up. I am 5'8", 130lbs, and I ordered the size 4, which I found to be too tight. Nonetheless, I looked great in it, and received major compliments. I paired it with a black blazer, and some structured black heels, to keep up with the futuristic edge look of the dress. Minimal jewelry. My first Proenza dress and I would DEFINITELY go back for another..

Very pretty, but a little smal
I loved the fabric on this dress, but it was really tight. I usually wear a 2 or a 4 and I should have ordered a 6 in this style.

This dress didn't work for me.
I ordered my usual size and the size up based on the reviews that the dress is slim, both were much much too tight. I could barely get the larger size over my hips which is unusual as I am very petite. The stylists were helpful in getting me something else in time for my event, though.

Beautiful dress!
I typically wear a 2 or 4 and the 4 fit perfectly. I thought the material was great for an outdoor wedding since it was a bit heavier weight. The material is beautiful with the mix of colors and metallic sheen. It's a really sexy dress without being over the top. I loved it!

I did not end up wearing this.
It is really more tweed -- the picture shimmers more than it actually does. It also was really boxy and not a great fit.

The dress is amazing but size up!
The dress is very fitted in the legs and stomach with very little give. I am usually a 2 - ordered a 2 and a 4 and would have preferred a 6 instead.

Loved the material and the colors!
I am a size 0/2 but the woman said to order a 2 because it runs a little small. However, I am a size D chest and there was noooo room for them whatsoever. There is not much give. However, needing to breathe was unnecessary because I looked fabulous.

did not wear it! thank god I had another (better) RTR dress!
fabric was almost tweed, which was very deceiving from the picture. it also ran very large, and hit my leg almost down to my knee--and I'm not a short girl! I got a size 4, but I should have gotten a 2 or even 0! The dress was not at all what I thought it would be, in a bad way.

Super fun sorority party, with a very fun dress!
I received a size 0 and a size 4, unfortunately the zipper of the 4 was broken, so I had to go with the 0. It was SUPER tight, and the material does not have a lot of give. It was perfectly comfortable while standing and dancing, but very short while sitting. I would've definitely preferred a size 2, so make sure to get your real size! I wore it with nude strappy heels to play off of the blush color in the fabric, and a simple gold bracelet and a bag with gold hardware! I did get a ton of compliments on it, and I loved how much personality the dress had!

Fits really true to size, no stretch in the fabric though so I'd recommend going one size up for a backup. Beautiful dress and fun to wear!

Perfect!
I wore this dress to my prom. It was beautiful -- the fabric is stunning up close, and it translates really well in photos. The only problem I had with it was that the fabric is a bit thick. As previous reviewers have noted, the dress fits tight in the hips, but it was flattering. I would order a size larger than you normally get -- I'm a 0 and wore a 2, which fit perfectly except for the stomach. It was loose around my stomach, though, and occasionally bunched up in pictures. No problems with it riding up though. Very comfortable too. In general, I LOVED this dress. It was interesting without being out-there, and was exactly what I wanted. I was so, so happy with it, and would absolutely recommend it.

Beautiful dress, but not for me
This is a unique and beautiful dress, but did not fit me right. It scrunched and clumped around the waist and was hard to get into. I didn't really like the fabric. There was some confusion in the delivery to the hotel so I ended up wearing one of my own dresses to the birthday party I was going to.

The fabric of this dress makes it more of a fall or winter dress in my opinion.
The dress was very tight around the hips and thighs and had no stretch. I knew it likely wouldn't work but gave it a shot anyway. Even if the dress had fit, I probably wouldn't have worn it in the middle of June in 100 degree heat as the fabric seems much better suited for cooler weather!

Fun party dress
I wore this dress to my 10 Year High School Reunion - I obviously wanted to stand out from the crowd (LBDs everywhere) and look great. This dress was definitely fun (love the color and cutouts) but it fits a little weird. I usually wear a 4 or 6 in dresses, but I almost wish I had gotten an 8. The hips were super tight, but the top (including the black cinched in section) was pretty baggy. I don't have huge boobs, maybe if I did this would fit better. The dress kept shifting around my hips and the side seam would end up in front, so I was constantly adjusting all night. I'm glad I wore it but it's by no means my favorite rental.

Beautiful Color Dress
I rented this dress for my anniversary but I couldn't fit in :( I was so dissappointed because I really liked the color but I couldn't even close the zipper ... def runs small and the back up size was not available. :( I will advise to order one-two size up if possible especially those lucky lady out there that have been blessed with wide hips :)

Not my favorite RTR dress.
I ordered a 6 and an 8. The 6 ran rib-crushingly small in the waist, and while the 8 was comfy in the waist, there was a ton of extra fabric in the belly area, which was unflattering. So, comfort, or flattering??? I went flattering, and took off the dress the moment dinner was over... The dress wasn't nearly as shimmery in the evening light, and the length was a bit matronly on my shorter 5'4" frame. I felt more like a politician's wife than a not date : ( I still love you though, RTR!

This was my back up dress for a wedding, and while I wasn't crazy about it, I got a ton of compliments. It grows on you. Beautiful colors, the material was a bit odd but thick so it held everything in real well. I would recommend ordering a size up if you're a size betweener.

Pretty and surprisingly comfortable
I rented this dress as an option for New Year's Eve, but I ended up choosing to wear another dress. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the fabric of this dress, both the color and texture were better than I had predicted. It wasn't as dressy looking as I was hoping for though, and I had read reviews saying to size up, so I ordered the 10 when I am usually an 8, and I wish I had just ordered an 8 because the 10 gave my body no shape. In the picture I am holding the extra fabric in the back to make it look more flattering. This would be a nice dress for a work function, maybe I'll find an occasion to order it again, next time in size 8.

The dress was beautiful, and I received tons compliments through the night
Its a beautiful woven fabric, but does not give and runs a little small. It sat very tight at the hip, and sadly the next size up was not available. It was not the most comfortable dress I have worn, but it was worth it!

Just like the other reviewers, I thought this dress ran small and has no give in the fabric and was tight in the hips and a little too loose in the waist. But it is a beautiful dress, wonderful metallic tweed fabric.

Great Dress!
I ordered this dress as my second style for a November wedding. While I ended up wearing an Herve Leger dress to the event, this dress was so great! I wish I would have had two weddings to wear it to! The cut-outs are chic but nothing too flashy. The fabric is sort of reminiscent to a tweed so it's a tad heavier than some other fabrics but it's not too short and it fit great!

I didn't end up wearing this dress but it fit perfect. You would need to wear a strapless bra and the fabric was a little scratchy.

Fit great but wrong material for my event
This dress is very pretty but the material is definitely more tweed than the photos show. The two dresses I received (size 2 and 4) were a little worn out (frayed material) so I could not wear this dress to the semi-formal wedding I was attending. Luckily RTR made up for it by overnighting me a replacement dress.

Could not wear it
Dress is pretty but material has basically no stretch to it so even though I usually wore an 8 to 10, size 10 was too small for me especially at the hips.
