High split with an elegant Hollywood feel.
The split in the front is very high and very sexy. The arms are slightly tighter than the rest of the dress, but the chest is very forgiving. The cinched waist allows the free material lose that frumpiness. I am typically between a size 6 or 8, which means something different for everybody. I have a large chest, small waist line, and wide bottom. This dress is perfect for someone with an hourglass figure. I went with the small because of my height - the medium seemed a bit too frumpy. This dress was beautiful. I wore it to a silent auction for our communities arts Council. It is formal event and this dress was very well received. I will definitely be renting the stress again.

Such a cute cut!!
I didn't end up wearing this dress because I ordered 2 of them and the other one was warmer as we had an outdoor wedding to attend. I had a really hard time not wearing this one, though, because it is SO cute and extremely flattering. I couldn't tell what color the design was in the picture, but they're definitely gold and not polka dots, in my opinion. The shoulders were a little snug but I am pretty broad through the shoulders. The tags were still on it and you can tell the material is good quality. I will be renting this again since I didn't get to wear it this time!

Beautiful fabric but way too big
This dress is well made and is beautiful fabric but the top was just too blousey and too much fabric. Perhaps better on women with larger chests but not for petite ladies.

I wish I could buy this dress!
This dress was amazing. I wore a small and it fit perfectly. I have broad shoulders, small chest, narrow waist, and wider hips and butt. This dress is perfect to accentuate a small waist and camoflage the lower half. I usually am a 4 in usual sizing. I am definitely going to rent this again!

Festive dress! Figure flattering!
I wish I had ordered the XS, (order the small without a backup) the top was a bit lose on my petite frame. It is a little low cut and you have to be careful with the front slit, unless you want to have an Angelina Jolie leg moment, which for my work event wasn't ideal but for any other party would have been ok! The length was great with 2.5 in heels, I'm 5'1". I thought it came with a sash, but the dress didn't arrive with one. All in all i loved this dress! It makes quite a statement, is sophisticated and sassy, and is prefect for the fall/winter. The wrap shape gives you a great figure. For petite girls I recommend going a size down.

Stylist Review
Amanda Uprichard brings edge to the polka dot with this black and gold silk maxi. Running true to size, we recommend sizing down for backup as there is ample room in the bust and the waist is comfortably cinched at the belted area. The v-neckline gives you the option to snap it open or close for a more or less intense cut while the high-low tea length boasts a wrap skirt with a slit that shows a bit of leg when you walk. Pair with black heels or heeled boots for a more casual vibe.

I wish I owned it!
This dress was super comfortable and easy to wear all day with a regular bra. It has a snap to make the neckline a little higher and I thought I might need it since I'm extremely busty but it actually hung perfectly with or without the snap closed.

First time renting from RTR, it was so fun! The dress fit just a little bit large for an XS but with elastic inside waist was super comfortable. It had thread belt loops but did not come with a belt. Really cute and worked well for photos!

Awesome dress for a fun night
I rented this dress for a cocktail charity event. It was perfect and it would be easy to dress up or dress down. The sleeves were a tiny bit snug around my shoulders for my frame, but that wasn't a big deal at all. I had so many compliments on it all night long--I loved it!

Kind of retro in a good way - Great Midi/Maxi dress for a shorter girl!
I rented the Small and the M. I wore the S. The M fit but I did not want the blouson effect to be too billowy. The S, the shoulders/ arms section was a little tight on me but I dealt with it. The S fit great other than that. I am 5'4" and I loved the length. If you are taller the length may not translate as well. I loved the sleeves also. I wore as a guest to a fall wedding, where there were lots of old family friends. I wanted to look pretty and stylish but not crazy sexy. The slit is pretty high just watch when you sit. But I was not bothered at all by it. Also, I really appreciated, there is a little snap in the chest area so you should not need fashion tape or anything. CONS: The dress did not come with any sash or belt, but it has little loops like it seems like it should have come with a sash or something. I paired it with a black belt that had a gold flower embellishment. I think the dress needs a belt for those who want to define their waist.

My sister and I had a blast being fancy at a black tie dinner!
This dress fits and drapes beautifully! I'm a sucker for wraps but can never seem to find tops or dresses that fully cover my bustier self. This one, however, made me feel both lovely and comfortable. I wore a small regular--the waist didn't squeeze (bring on the dessert!) and the hem hit the middle of the backs of my ankles (never felt like I would fall on my face). It was also a perfect median between fancy and not-too-fancy; I was only a guest and wanted to appear occasion appropriate but not overdone. Most importantly, it looked super awesome with my glasses. I would definitely rent again!

Beautiful and Comfortable!
Loved this dress! The arms were a little snug, but I have muscular arms and this is a normal issue. I went up to the Medium to fit my arms and shoulders better but the dress didn't look too big. I received compliments the entire night. Best part was how COMFORTABLE it is. Lightweight and easy to wear.

Did not wear, but feels so comfortable!
This dress was far more "gold silk" than I thought from my brief review of the photos. The dress felt wonderful and is a lovely drape design. The top half was far too roomy for me, though, and had entirely too much extra fabric blooming at the waist. If I could have taken up and in the upper body, this would have been great. A petite option would have been better for my upper torso. I loved the design play of the V-neck, diagonal sleeve, and the hem's reverse V. For the proportioned woman this is designed form, I think it'd be terrific when you want a fluid feel, easy in the waist, and to look effortlessly chic but not overdressed for serving a special holiday meal.

Both sizes were too long for my 5'3" frame -- the smaller size fit, but was tight in the arms.
I have a bustier frame -- so the top just didn't flatter. Didn't end up wearing. However, fabric was nice and I would recommend for someone with C cup or smaller bra-size.

Fun to wear and perfect for a holiday party
I really enjoyed wearing this dress. The gold threads of the polka dots are sewn into the fabric so it's sparkly and textured but not over-the-top. I love the longer sleeves and the wrap aspect of the dress. I normally wear a size 8 or medium in dresses, but I sized up to the large because the way the drop sleeves were cut made the size medium really tight in the shoulders. I've never had that problem in a dress before and I don't have particularly broad shoulders so it was something about the way the dress was cut and that was my only complaint. Sizing up made the top a little more billowy but I did have the belt to cinch the waist. I received lots of compliments and questions about where the dress came from and I paired it with some sparkly earrings and high-heeled brown booties.

Fun!
I enjoyed this dress. I wore booties to dress it down. I fit into both small and medium, but the medium was very top heavy and blousy so I went with the small. I used a little fashion tape to help keep the leg opening closed. I am not a fan of too much leg, so the tape helped. Also after reading others reviews, I DID receive a belt with the dress. I was worried I wouldn't based on previous reviews, and both back up dress and dress worn had one!!

Beautiful dress with a very classy cut!
This is the perfect in-between dress for the occasion that's not quite cocktail but not jeans either. The only issue with this dress is with the front split, you have to be really careful sitting and getting up because you could accidentally flash someone because of the way it opens and lays. But other than that, I love this dress! I liked it so much I went out and bought it!

Appropriate dress for professional events - not too "young"
Me - 32DD, 5'8", approx 135 lbs, athletic build The cleavage button is really high - basically closes everything up below the clavicle - top portion is very loose. I almost wore the XS, but it was a bit short for my height, and the arms were too tight for my arms. Leg slit goes high, and opens when you walk, so plan to wear boy shorts.

Beautiful fabric and unique style and cut. Fun party dress!
The dress was comfortable however the sleeves felt a little small and the fabric in the chest was excessive. It had an 80s vibe to it, which wasn't what I was going for but I was able to make it work with modern accessories and adjusting the front with pins.

I wore this dress for a dinner and theatre date night with my husband.
The dress was very nice, it fit well and I loved the high-low hem. I was a little uncomfortable with how open it was in the front when I walked, so I often held the front of the dress closed. But I still loved it and felt very pretty and cool. Another plus is that the dress can be dressed up with high heels and delicate jewelry, or it can have more of a 'downtown' look with black booties and chunky jewelry.

Wore for Xmas eve and couldn't have been better! I was comfortable (even when shoes came off!) and looked elegant all night. Very easy and required little other accessories since the dress stands on its own very nicely.

Unfortunately, this dress didn't work for me.
I am breastfeeding so I needed a dress that would accommodate my larger than normal chest and allow me to wear a nursing bra. The dress did that but the overall look was frumpy. There was way too much material in the chest area but it was too tight in the arms. I also thought the overall look veered towards costume-y.

Runs large, better for tall/thin frames.
Runs very large and boxy, better for tall/thin ladies I am a size 12 large and it was huge on the chest (36DD) and baggy on the shoulders. Fit OK on the hips/waist, but overall looked awkward.

Sassy and sophisticated
This dress is so fun. The cut is totally different from any other dress I've rented, and it's such a cool little black dress alternative. The top is very loose - I'm pretty busty and at first I put on my biggest push-up to try and fill it out, but it ended up looking much better when I put on something without padding and just let it fall. The waist and sleeves hit at the perfect spots. The slit was also a little more dramatic that I anticipated, especially when I was sitting down, but it's definitely not a deal breaker. I would absolutely recommend this dress.

Great dress for a classy party!!
I wore this dress to New Year's Eve party. It was perfect. Everyone loved it, and I felt great in it. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5, is because the medium was too tight on my shoulders, but the large was a bit loose everywhere. It still looked great, though. It was comfortable and I loved the sleeves- and the low neckline and high-low hem added a little something. I wanted to buy it!

Nice but not in great condition.
I wore this dress in Medium to a black tie optional wedding. The small was very tight across the shoulders. The fit of the dress was nice. Unfortunately the belt that came with the dress was soaking wet. I had the back up to use but it was a different color. The dots on the small were very shiny and the dots on the medium were dull, which appeared to be due to wear and cleaning. I would have loved the dress if it looked like the small. I did wear the dress and it looked good. I did not feel dressy enough or special.

Classic , Elegant and oh so comfortable
I really enjoyed this dress not to mention it did help that I saw Cameron Diaz in something similar. Being 6'1 I usually shoot for the dresses that pass the knees. This dress I wore to my husbands company party. He works at a wealth firm so I wanted to sure to be appropriate and not show too much. The dress showcased great. My chest was covered but if you want to add a little sexy leave the button open. The one Con I had concerned the slit. When sitting down it went quite high so just make sure that hands are in the right place when getting out of the car or up from your seat other than that it was great.

A unique dress to stand apart at a NYE party- Thanks RTR!
I am usually a size medium for most dresses, but the MR size of this dress was not available for the dates I needed, so I decided to gamble and rent the SR and get the LR as the free backup. After trying on both sizes I decided that the LR was too big, since as other reviewers have mentioned, there is a lot of fabric in the top. Even though I have a larger bust, the LR size had too much fabric to look good on me. The SR fit, but was a little tight around the arm and hip areas. I did have to adjust the chest area to have it lay nicely, and I did have to be careful when sitting because the wrap skirt could fall open. I decided to wear the SR, though if I rent again, I would try to get the MR to see if it fits better than the SR. I wore nude tights, short black boots, and simple jewelry to keep the outfit more casual since the NYE party was at a house, but i think it could also look great with strappy heels. I got many compliments and I will definitely try to rent it again for another occasion.

Fit was great! Really easy to wear.
This is actually a lot dressier than the pic online. The material is light and slightly sheer on the arms with really fun gold metallic spots. I wore it to a wrap party and was super comfortable and stylish without having to worry about straps falling or spanx like a lot of other options! Good option for girls who like to look nice but dont like the fuss.

In love with this dress! Didn't get a full body pic of it at the actual wedding but it was great!
I ordered an XS and S - chose the small. It was super comfortable and perfect for any event. One problem was the small did not come with the matching belt attached - so I needed to wear my own belt. Which is fine but something I would've been more upset about had I not had my own belt. Overall, I would've love to buy this dress because it was fabulous. Many many compliments!!!
