Perfect for 1920s party - or any party!
I rented this for a 1920s themed murder mystery party. It was completely perfect and I received countless compliments. I was worried about the slip being too small, per other reviews, so I tried it on with a nude slip and a grey slip I already owned. These also looked good, but in the end, the blue poking through was too good to pass up and while the blue slip was a little short it was not at all uncomfortable, so I wore it. I loved the flashy design and unexpected color combination. Was sad to return this one!

Perfect dress for the occasion!
I thought this dress was great and so beautiful! It definitely has the 20/30s straight/ loose fit, which is why I choose it for a 20s party. Great success!

I felt really good in this dress! It is definitely a standout dress. You'll feel ready to party :)
The blue slip underneath had a very fit snug and I think the dress would have been more comfortable if it was a bit looser. The effect of the two layers was beautiful and worth the minor discomfort of the tight slip. I am 5'7" and felt the length of the slip was actually okay although I was conscious of pulling it down from time to time. Overall the dress was easy to wear and I am happy with my rental!

The way the dress photographed.
The slip is super tiny, the outside part of the dress is true to size. I loved it and so did my fiancé. Perfect for our 1920's engagement shoot. Maybe not the best if you really like to twerk it ;)

The colors of this dress were amazing! Perfect flapper dress!
Like other reviews mentioned the turquoise under slip ran VERY small. In anticipation for that happening I ordered a slip from Amazon and used it underneath instead and it worked out perfectly! The colors in this dress are amazing. I received dozens of compliments. It was the perfect dress for my 30th birthday. I think it would work great with any body type. I'm 5'8" and usually wear a size 4. My main concern was that it wouldn't fit across the chest because I'm a 34D/32DD, but it was fine. The slip however, would never have worked, even with the backup size, it was WAY too short and tight. The slip is silk so it does not have stretch. If you order this dress I recommend having a slip backup ready.

Really fun party dress!
Overall a super flattering and fun dress. The blue slip was way too short so I wore a nude one instead. Neither the blue nor the overlay have any stretch, which made sitting interesting. But it was super fun and comfortable. The sequins weren't as scratchy as I expected. Perhaps not recommended for larger chests (mine was more on display than I'd usually want) but loved it overall!

Sheath is gorgeous and super fun! Slip dress was a size petite and I could not wear it.
I rented this for my friend's bachelorette party. I received a size 8 and a size 6. I usually wear a size 8 and wanted to order a 10 as my back up size, but it wasn't available. The size 8 sheath fit perfectly, but both the size 6 and 8 sheaths came with size P (petite?) turquoise slip dresses. I couldn't even put the slip dress on my body...not over my head, nor stepping into it (even with the zipper zipped all the way down). Luckily I owned a nude colored slip dress that fit perfectly underneath the sheath. I called RTR and told them that I was sent two petite size slip dresses and there was no way a petite slip dress should be paired with a size 8 sheath dress. They were super understanding and apologetic. I was refunded for 50% of my rental cost (since I still ended up wearing 1/2 the dress). The sheath was such fun to wear. It was comfortable and easy to dance in. It is definitely on the shorter side when you sit down, but I was in a club and most of the time I was up and dancing. I got compliments on the dress all night. Strangers were coming up to me and asking me where I got it. I felt like a walking advertisement for RTR. I felt like a rock star. I already rented my second RTR dress for a wedding in August and plan to rent several more times for future events. Their customer service is friendly, helpful and very professional.

Great dress for Garba and Sangeet!
This dress is pretty, but I gave it 3 stars because it looks a little strange in person (also a bit of a boxy fit). I wore this for my good friend's wedding (she is Indian), and the bright colors fit in well with the guests' colorful saris! 3 stars for the boxy fit...not the most flattering dress.

Loved loved loved the dress. Didn't get to wear it because the slip was way too short.
Seriously the slip, which is what it is, didn't even cover my rear. I was so disappointed because I loved the dress in the other review pictures. Make sure you have a backup or enough time to make a switch.

Great choice for a 1920's wedding reception!
Because other reviewers mentioned that the green slip ran small, I ordered the Size 4 and the Size 6 so that I could wear the larger slip. I actually didn't think the slips were different -- they fit exactly the same to me (and in fact, both said size "P"). BUT the Size 4 slip had a crooked hemline and sat too high in the front, so I'm very glad I had the Size 6 slip to wear instead, which had an even hemline. Really great dress, and worked great for the 1920's wedding reception I attended!

Loved this dress! It fit true to size, but the slip underneath did run short. The straps can be adjusted to lengthen a bit. This dress was a huge hit and really stood out in a crowd.

So disappointed that it wasn't for me
The slip was a little raggedy looking - but no problem because it's under the dress to give it that blue/green color. I still think the design and fabric are fun and pretty - but for my figure, it just sort of hung there and showed too much of my bony breastbone. On the right body, I'm sure it would be lovely. I also didn't like the overly gold wide bottom trim - it made the dress look cheap - if the gold were toned down, it would be better. Still really like the look on the right person at the right event though. BONUS - RtR didn't have my backup size in this dress, let me know & sent 2 substitute choices - one of which is a great dress for my business holiday party - it's appropriate and festive! LOVE RTR's customer service!!

Fun to wear, lots of compliments
This is a beautiful dress, I wore the 6 and had no problems with it being too short. However, I have a really short torso so that may have been why. Wore it with gold heels and paired it with a gold clutch -- looked fab.

So unique!
I received this dress as a substitution for the one I originally ordered when it was returned with damage. I am so happy I ended up with this one instead! I received so many compliments and it was perfect for the 20's themed event I went too. It is a lot more fun and unique than the typical black flapper dress. It does run a little small and like the other reviews say the slip underneath is a little short. The sequin layer was also difficult to get on with hair and makeup already done. However the size I did wear fit like a glove. I highly recommend!

lining too short - unwearable
I saw it in the other reviews, but decided to try this dress anyways, which was a mistake. As others have noted, the green slip that goes under the dress is way too short. I am fairly tall, but this was obscene in the front - even in a size 6. Even if you were shorter and the slip covered you, it's still a couple inches shorter than the gold band on the bottom of the outer layer of the dress, so it just looks strange. What a waste - why would they make it like that? Couldn't wear, had to ship back and wear another dress I already had.

Slip too Short
The under layer is a green slip that didn't even cover my (not tremendously huge) backside. I was able to swap this dress for another - RTR has amazing customer service! - but found this dress to be unwearable.

Very comfortable!
Wore this to a Washingonian magazine event this summer. The colors were as pretty as in the pictures, and it was true to size. It was a bit baggy on me (both of my sizes) as I'm very petite and slim-hipped. That being said, it flowed generously over all the lumps and bumps so I didn't need shapewear. Would rent it again!

Tight in the bust. Could maybe have done a 4 to fit even better across that area so if you have a full bust you might want to size up!

Gorgeous, unique dress!
It was a really standout dress for a fall wedding where most ladies were in dark navy or black dresses. Received many compliments! As many others have stated the slip is a little shorter that the gold bar at the bottom of the dress, for me it wasn't terribly noticeable though. When I rented they only had 1 size 6 left so I didn't get to try a smaller size. I bet a 4 would have fit better as the dress was a little baggy, but it still looked great and was very comfortable! It was an awesome night and I felt beautiful and very comfortable in the dress, definitely would recommend it!

Beautiful colors and pattern
This dress seemed a bit worn when I received it. Many sequins and some were frayed, and it just didn't look as "fresh" as I would have liked. The bottom part is a very shiny gold fabric that I didn't realize was so shiny. Still think this is a fun dress for. Gatsby or 20s themed party, but it just didn't work for what I was looking for.

One of a kind look!
Rented this for a 1920s speakeasy party and it was the perfect look for the evening from the sequins to the teal, gold, and copper colors. I gave it 3 stars because of the fit - based on other reviewers' comments, I rented a 6 instead of a 4 and got an 8 for backup. I wore the slip from the larger dress and the overlay from the smaller dress, and the slip still rode up and seemed too short for the dress. If you have anything going on in the butt and hips you'll probably have the same. Otherwise it was gorgeous and stood out.

sparkle, sparkle, sparkle!
This dress is great for a wedding very sparkly, I got loads of compliments! BUT, warning, the other reviews are right about the underslip. Although the outerdress fit well, the innerslip was very tight and very short, so I wore one of my own, a purple slip which picked up the colors nicely. Also the dress is a little tight in the armholes, so if you have a bulkier upper body, I would size up.

Perfect for 1920s theme and tons of compliments all night! Love this dress!
The slip is really short and rides up even on a 5'1 small frame. It was worth it though just have to pull it down when standing up because everything will be exposed otherwise. The fit was perfect and a 0 fit me even though I usually wear a 2. Best rental ever and much better option than a run of the mill flapper costume. I probably wouldn't wear this to a non themed event just because it is over the top. The gold border along the bottom of the dress was appropriate for my event and I liked the soft texture.

Unique dress, stands out from other LBD's
This dress runs bigger than expected. Ordered size 2 and 0. I was surprised by loose fit of the slip. I'm not straight (figured) by any means but 2 was too loose so fabric was bunching which you can see through the sequin layer on top. Overall fit of 0 was much better; however I wished the slip was little longer as it fit slightly above the gold trim at the bottom of the dress. I had to keep pulling down the slip all night long. Overall, it was a great dress and I got lots of compliments! Just be aware of the length, if you have long torso and /or bra size bigger than C Cup. The slip would be too tight.

It was a great dress for an Indian fusion wedding in wine country.
As many other reviews noted, the slip is too short for the dress. I am "straight & narrow" and the blue slip still did not bridge the gap between the gold trim at the bottom and the bottom of the slip (exposing my legs and potentially my bottom). I switched out the slip for a black Spanx slip that I had in my closet (after reading the reviews, I was prepared, but disappointed, by this possibility). I got many compliments and the overall effect was as intended, but it would have been better with the slip.

I have never had so much fun wearing sequins! What an incredibly unique dress!
What a fun dress! I got compliments all night long and besides the bride, was definitely the best-dressed there. Before receiving the dress I was a little worried because after reading reviews, I thought it might be too small. I usually wear 4-6 and the backup-size-2 was a last ditch, just-in-case kind of thing. When I received it they had only sent me the slip with the size 2 though so I'm glad I ordered it! It BARELY went down far enough to meet the gold band on the bottom of the dress. As long as I didn't bend at the waist I was fine and I was able to dance in it for 2 hours with no problems! It was an outdoor July wedding and I was so glad I chose a dress that was breathable.

Perfect for a Roarin' 20's Engagement Party!
After reading all the reviews about the turquoise slip, I had a backup plan with a plain maroon bodycon dress that I already owned. THANK GOODNESS!! As expected, the slip was beyond tiny and wouldn't even slightly zip up. With the maroon dress on, I pulled the sparkling & gorgeous RTR dress over it, threw on my headpiece and was ready for the night to begin. It was perfect (minus the slip--seriously, ladies, if you have curves, don't be unprepared when the slip won't fit!!)

I looked amazing. The dress was exactly was I wanted. Everyone loved my outfit. I was s start!
I have hips so the dress hugged my body perfectly, but the green underskirt was short and my hips keep pulling it up that was the only down side of it. The whole night I had to stay mindful of pulling it down. Other than that, it was great. I was also a little hesitant on the length because I didn't want it long. When I looked at the model who wore, her legs seems long and the dress looks short on her, I'm 5'4'' and it fit 1-2 inches above my knees. The fit and length was perfect.

Beautiful fabric with just the right amount of sparkle!
I wore this stunning dress for a wedding. The colors were minty teal and coraly peach and this dress complimented perfectly. The 0 fit much better than the 2. A little snug at the bust, but nothing to worry about. Would recommend!
