This dress was a huge hit! It was very fun to wear!
The slip to the dress was a bit on the short side but was able to make it work!

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Fabulous dress, but the inner slip/sheath is tiny!
This dress comes in two pieces: an outer mesh sheath and an inner slip. If you have any sort of bust or are curvy, the inner slip fit is a problem. It was super tight on me and was too short. I finally threw in the towel and purchased a nude slip to wear under the fabulous mesh sheath. Loved it wearing it this way, but missed the intended effect of the blue slip. The outer mesh sheath is gorgeous and is really easy to wear. I would definitely love to rent this dress again.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Perfect going out dress! Both guys and girls were complimenting me on it!
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!

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!

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.

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.

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!

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 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!!

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.

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 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.

This dress is to die for - it makes such a statement. I got tons of compliments all night long!
The only minor issue is that the under-layer is a little bit shorter than the top layer, so occasionally you could see a bit of thigh between the top of the gold band at the bottom of the top layer and the bottom of the under-layer, if the under-layer had ridden up a bit. That only happened a couple of times and the dress is so stunning it was totally worth it!

If you're 5'7" where will this fall on your leg? Mid thigh or just above the knee?

The colors were gorgeous!
Because this was brand new to RTR (both sizes still had original tags!) I didn't get to see any reviews, but loved this dress so much that I took a chance! I wore this to a benefit concert in which I was performing. When I put it on, I was slightly disappointed in the red colors, which were more brown/rusty than in the picture. On stage, though, the colors were stunning! But unless you have the beneit of $500,000 in professional lighting equipment, prepare for a slightly different effect. The fit definitely runs small. I ended up with the 0 because the 2 was baggy in the waist, but the 0 was snug at the hips and a little shorter than I usually like. If you're curvy, you'll probably fall between sizes like I did. I think this dress is best for a more narrow frame, but it's definitely a dramatic dress and a showstopper!

I would love to know what type of bra you can wear with this dress? It appears to have a see-thru area at the shoulder and a more plunging back so I'm not sure my bandeau bra will work?

Beautiful on the top - but not on the bottom
This was my back-up dress. I did not wear it and I would never rent it again because the gold band on the bottom looks really, really cheap in person. It reminded me of crushed velvet on a cheap costume. It is a shame because the rest of the dress is really beautiful. Also, the dress was a little long for my petite frame.

Sparkly
I wore this dress to a wedding and I worse gold heels - I thought it was very pretty esp in the daytime (it's so sparkly). I am petite and not super curvy (straight) and I didn't think the fit was super flattering on me - It's not very tapered at the waist and it was a little "much" on a petite body. That being said, I got a lot of compliments all day/night - it is a unique color and style.

I loved this dress! It's short but not too short, sparkly, and great to dance in.
I loved wearing this dress! I didn't realize in the RTR photos that the entire rust red design is actually made of matte sequins. It's beautiful and unlike other sequined dresses I've worn, actually feels quite sturdy. The shoulders have lingerie straps to hold the underslip (and your bra) straps in place, which I love. The only slight issue is that the slip rides up just a tad and sometimes shows about 1/4 inch of leg behind you, just above the gold band. All in all this was a perfect party dress, really easy to dance in, and I felt great in it. Received many compliments!

Unique and eye-catching
This dress is actually 2 pieces, which i didn't realize. The turquiose portion is just a slip underneath. So the outer dress is sequined on a sheer shell. Its unique and different and I got many compliments on the dress. The gold band on the bottom hem I felt looked a little cheap but the gold matched perfectly with my shoes. I wore this to a black-tie optional masquerade charity auction. It was fun to wear something I wouldn't normally wear and it was a very cool dress.

Just a beautiful dress!
This dress is really pretty! It comes in 2 pieces (the green lining and the sparkling top layer). I normally wear a size 8-10 and chose to have a size 6 & 8 sent to me because the dress looked sort of baggy. The size 8 fit, but was snug and I couldn't wear my strapless bra with it or I would not have been able to zip-up the green lining. I have to say that I received so many compliments on this unique dress and wore it with champagne colored jewelry (turquoise jewelry would have been too tacky). My only negative comment would be that the sequins were a little annoying, especially when driving my car with my seat belt on or shifting when sitting. I would definitely recommend this dress!

Wearing this beautiful dress made my event unforgettable!
The first time I saw this dress I knew it would be perfect for the October wedding that I was attending. I was hesitant at first because I would normally choose size 4 and 6 as my backup because I am petite but muscular. However size 6 was unavailable so I went with a 2 and thank god I did! The 4 was huge but the 2 was perfect. I'm used to dresses clinging to the body, but this one is loose fitting. The length fell about 2 inches above my knee which I was not too happy about, but I was thankful for that later while I was dancing. Overall I love the unique pattern of the dress, the colors and of course the sparkle! Accessorizing and doing my makeup was so much fun, MAC even makes a pigment the exact orange of the dress that really complimented my eyes.

Huge disappointment :(
Loved the way this dress looked online- as the other reviews mentioned, the bottom panel is more like a velvet, not the shimmer you see in the picture. I usually wear a 6, but got an 8 since I read that it ran small. Whoa that doesnt begin to describe...the turquoise slip barely reached my legs. No way I could have worn this!

Definitely an interesting, beautiful and glamorous dress, voted 'best dress of the evening' by the hostess of the holiday party I rented it for, and even my discerning designer-girlfriend agreed. I loved the color scheme and was thrilled to have perfectly matching accessories at hand. The combination of sheer and shiny fabrics with sequins works great and has a lot more class than, for example, a fully sequined stretch dress. However, the problems noted by other reviewers were accurate: the shift runs slightly small - do size up when you rent - and it is shorter than the shell (for no apparent reason, I'd consider this a design flaw), thus easily showing the bottom hem above the golden velvet of the shell. Probably fixable with some fashion tape. The shell, on the other hand, is a bit bulky and likely better for 'straight and narrow' body types than for curvier women. Nevertheless, a fun and eye-catching dress that served it's purpose 'to shine' and deserves 4 stars.

So many compliments!
This dress is gorgeous and I absolutely loved the beautiful beadwork. As other reviewers have mentioned, the dress consists of two pieces -- the greenish blue slip and the beaded overlay. The slip which zips at the side was much more form fitting than the overlay and if it had been any smaller, I would've had a hard time zipping it up. The overlay is larger as it's a simple sheath so there's not any definition at the bust or waist. Some other reviewers have mentioned that they found the gold band at the bottom to look cheap but it didn't bother me at all. I did wear the dress to a fancy dress 1920s party so maybe I was more lenient with the overall look because it was intended as a costume. The slip is shorter than the sheath although the straps on the slip are adjustable so I could have increased the length but then the front would have been too low cut for me. This dress was perfect for a fun New Year's Eve on the town. I loved wearing it and I felt so much more party-ready and confident than if I'd tried to make something from my own closet work. I got so many compliments on this dress — a lady even stopped by our table at dinner just to say how much she loved it — and everyone wanted to know where it was from so RTR might have a few more customers after my rave reviews of the site. I'd never ordered from RTR before so when we got last minute tickets for a Roaring Twenties NYE party, I checked out out the site and thought this dress was perfect but a bit pricey. Luckily, when I checked the site again, there was a NYE 50% off deal so I couldn't resist. I ordered on Friday and the dress arrived before noon on Monday. I loved the thoughtful touches of the party hats, fit kit and tote bag. The return process was so simple. It was a great experience all around and I'll definitely check out RTR for any future special occasion needs.

The feeling of wearing such a gorgeous dress!
This dress is AMAZING. The most beautiful dress I've ever worn. People were literally stopping me all night to tell me how beautiful it was. Definitely fits true to size.
