A complete stranger came up to me the next day to compliment me on the dress - guess that it was pretty memorable!
Loved the dress for its unique design and bright color that really popped. I rented this dress for a Senior Ball black-tie formal affair and was turning heads all night! From the gold chain neckline, to the revealing back, to the flowing train, this dress is eye-catching from any angle! However, I almost didn't end up wearing the dress due to small grievances. First, I had difficulty getting the draping in the front to flow correctly. There was a lot of extra material around the torso which got wrinkled easily, making it look frumpy (see pics). Second, there is a seam down the front of the dress which looked a little awkward. In the end, my friends convinced me to wear the dress because the small issues probably wouldn't be noticeable from far away in the dimly lit venue. They were completely right! My two cents: with this dress, you definitely need the confidence (and great posture!) to rock it in order to overcome the wrinkling/draping issues. Thanks for RTR's fantastic customer service!

I felt the same way with the seam, but once I flipped the way the chain went into the top part, it evened out the seam and fixed the entire dress - you definitely have to try the chain both ways to figure out which one makes the dress fall correctly on you :)

Hi Nikki, we recommend the Commando nude high-waist control thong or brief for this style to keep everything smooth.

This dress was so easy, comfortable, and super sexy. You will get noticed in this dress!
I wore this dress for a cocktail party for work. It was sooo comfortable and easy to wear, and very sexy with the low back. I enjoyed standing out in the crowd of LBD's, and everyone noticed. When I stepped out of the bathroom stall, the ladies in line were applauding me and my dress. That has never happened before! LOL! You will get noticed in this dress!

I felt unbelievably sexy and gorgeous the night of this event! I was even asked to "Vanna White" the auction items. One artist came to me and ask me specifically to be the one to showcase his piece!
Absolutely loved this gown! Will definitely buy it once I'm debt-free. I normally wear a size 2, but I wore the 4--it had better flow and dropped down farther in the back. You will not be able to wear a bra with this dress, not even a nu bra, as the silicon side attachments would be visible, so be prepared for that. The color is definitely tangerine--looks more coral in the picture, but it's a deep, dark, gorgeous tangerine. I went with some color-blocking and wore seafoam/tealish shoes and earrings to match. Worked great! Highly recommend this gown!

Best Dress Ever!
I wore this to a wedding and everyone loved it. In fact one woman told me to take a body guard to the ladies room because it was so fabulous. Fit is great and it is so comfortable. A true show stopper!!!

ABSOLUTELY STUNNING
I cannot express how gorgeous this dress is! I can't count the number of compliments I received on it. It needs very little accessorizing as it makes such a statement in itself. The color is vibrant and looks great on tan skin. I will be renting again.

Hi Jamie - were you able to wear this with out a bra...? Thanks!
RTRJune 4, 2012
Hi Jennie, we recommend a NuBra with this style if you're fuller busted.

The dress won me a photo with the press! Thanks RTR!!!
I LOVE this dress and after wearing it to attend a fashion show, I believe it's one of those dresses that everyone loves!! The color just popped and the flow of the silk fabric is beautiful. It's trendy, elegant yet easy - a perfect party or resort dress!

Did you wear a nu bra underneath or go without one?
ChristenApril 16, 2012
What color shoes did you wear?
ElaineApril 18, 2012
I went without a bra, thankfully it's not too cold in the winter here in California! :) I paired the dress with gold Dior shoes.

This experience was so easy. I ordered last minute and everything came on time. The fit expert that helped me was right on with the sizing.
This dress is gorgeous and turns lots of heads. I'm regularly a size 4 and this fit perfect. I probably could have went with the 2, but this dress is meant to flow and look relaxed. I got so many compliments in Vegas. Someone even asked if I was famous. ;) It does wrinkle easy, and the chain around the neck is a little heavy.

Hi! I ordered this dress for an event in April and I'm a bit worried I may be too short (I'm 5'5''). Did you wear your's with heels? If so, what height?
JoyceMay 7, 2012
Wel I was thinking of ordering this dress myself however, I am only 5' is this dress going to be too long for me.. Thanks for your input..
RTRMay 9, 2012
Hi Joyce, this dress is 38'' from shoulder to shortest length of the hem. Take a quick measurement to see if that's a good length for you!

Do you think this dress would work for an evening, Dallas wedding in July?
RTRJune 27, 2012
Hi Jennifer, this dress would be perfect for the Dallas summer heat in July. Pair with nude heels to give it a summer wedding look!
JenniferJuly 21, 2012
Ok...it's me again. Do you think this dress would work for an evening, Sept. 1st wedding in Southern California?
RTRJuly 24, 2012
Hi again! This style is also appropriate for a SoCal wedding this summer. I would say September is your last warm month to try it out, so we think you should give it a shot!
ShannieAugust 8, 2012
can I ask what kind of underwear you wore? Is it snug/nonflattering in the tummy area? Just wondering if I should go with a regular panty or something like spanx
NicoleAugust 16, 2012
Would the dress be okay for a late October wedding in Arizona? Or is it too summery?
RTRAugust 29, 2012
Hi Nicole! This dress would be perfect for a late October wedding! Orange is also a great color for fall!
