Great for a formal night

I ended up returning this dress unworn as I decided it was too formal for my event. That said, it was a beautiful dress and the backless style actually had plenty of support for my large bust . I've never tried to pull off a backless dress before due to that but this would have worked! It definitely shows quite a bit of cleavage in the front, so this ones not for the conservative. The length was great with heels for my 5'5" height.

Gorgeous and well made

You absolutely need to use a combination of fashion tape and sticky bra to make this work but I never felt like I was going to fall out. I got so many compliments from everyone on this choice for a formal wedding. The pattern was unexpected and the material rich and thick. It was a cold day but I didn't feel it given the thickness of the dress. Also, pockets! The only (major) downside was that the two hook and eyes that kept the back shut behind the neck would not stay closed. Anytime I moved to create slack in the back/shoulders they would come undone. They really need to be replaced with buttons or safety pinned shut. I of course didn't notice this flaw until the wedding was underway so I couldn't fix it but it's embarrassing to keep having to get snapped back in by just about anyone who offers. I know it fit just fine as the bottom portion of the back was a touch snug around my rib cage/back, it's simply a flaw in the hook and eye closure. I'd rent it again, but bring safety pins!

This is absolutely the most gorgeous dress I have ever worn. I can't emphasize how stunning it is!

I'm usually a 0 or 2 and the 2 was perfect. I'm 5'3" so I usually have a lot of trouble with length, but this dress was perfect for me because it is shorter in the front and I didn't need to alter it with fashion tape (and it still has a stunning train that is fancy but still easy to manage.) The gold and pink colors were so complementary to my pale skin, and the fabric is absolutely luxurious. It has a gorgeous cutout in the back too, so make sure people can see it! I've never received so many compliments as I have in this dress.

The dress was a stand-out at prom. I received endless compliments and I felt beautiful. Another huge plus were the pockets!! I highly recommend this dress for any formal affair where you want to feel like the "it-girl." THANK YOU RTR

Dress is beautiful, love the backless detail. A little big in the chest and needed some fabric tape.

Runs a bit small in the upper waist, not much difference between the 10 and 12. Fabric is beautiful, love the pockets. Lots of compliments

Gorgeous gown! Received a million compliments -- would love to rent again

An absolutely gorgeous gown, a real showstopper--- I received compliments all night long! I rented the 6 and the 8-- but ended up wearing the 8 bc it provided slightly more coverage in the chest than the 6-- the six fit better everywhere else though. Recommend a backless, strapless deep plunging adhesive bra and some fashion tape. I really hope I have an event with all different guests so I can rent this again!!

Stunning.

This dress is the most beautiful dress I've ever worn. The fabric is amazing and it's very comfortable. Extremely slimming around the waist. The bust is a little loose but can be fixed with fabric tape to keep everything in. I rented the 4R and wore 4 inch heels, that seemed to be the perfect mix to keep the back hem off the ground but still be long and elegant.

Love love loved this dress! Wore it for my senior prom and it was beyond perfect

I was expecting to wear the four which is my regular size and ended up wearing the 2, very grateful I chose a 2 & 4 rather than a 4 & 6. If you have a small chest you will end up having to dress tape the neckline down. But overall the dress was so gorgeous in person, I was expecting it to be more light pink and dark green but in person is actually more lavender and ALOT of gold. The dress is unique and I felt so beautiful in it! 10/10. Easy to dance in, comfortable, and so so so beautiful:)

I absolutely LOVED this dress. I wore it for my senior prom and got compliments all night long!

I rented the 2 and 4. I am normally a 2 and the 2 fit the best. It was a little tight in the back, but not uncomfortable. I would highly recommend this dress. It looks even better in person. The pictures don't do it justice!

Perfect for formal!

I rented this dress for my last sorority formal. I was anticipating wearing the 10, but it was a little too snug in the waist so I went with the 12. It was perfect! I got so many compliments throughout the night. It was slightly big in the bust, so I had to use garment tape to tape the neckline down, and the clasps at the top of the back did come undone a few times throughout the night. Overall though I loved the dress and the issues with it were really minor!

Received many complements and nice fabric with POCKETS

I received many complements and loved the feel of the dress. I didn't wear a bra with this dress because of the open front and the open back so I recommend fabric tape or something to cover your nipples. Another point is that I ordered a 0 and it was a little tight around the waist, but it fit well in the bust. Overall very pleased with the dress.

This dress was beautiful, but as the other commenters noted, it runs small in the rib cage. I wish I could have worn it, it's very heavy and beautiful.

Short Torsos Beware

This dress is so pretty and I wish I could have worn it but... There was just no way. If I were about 3 inches taller or had a longer torso maybe it would have worked. The bottom fit like a glove but there was just not helping the top. I am 5'3". and normally wear a 6.

I wore this dress for prom- it fit almost perfectly and looked beautiful

It's true that it is a tad tight in the back, but I have a fairly broad back and it was still pretty comfortable. It's not as heavy as it looks, and the rise in the front makes it easy to walk and move in plus the pockets are great. Definitely one of the most beautiful dresses I've ever worn, would highly recommend it for just about any formal affair.

Best possible dress!

I had more compliments on this dress than anything I've ever worn. People kept telling me it was stunning. It was fun and easy to dance in and the fabric was thick, but cool. It felt very elegant and expensive. I was able to dress it down by ordering the 2r and flats. This let he dress actually fall at ankle length for me (I'm 6'), and it didn't skim the floor, which would have made it a bit too dramatic for the event. The 4L I ordered would have hit the floor and been the intended length if I wanted. I wish I could wear this again and again. It was unforgettable.

So many compliments!

Without realizing how intricate and beautiful (read: fancy) the embroidery was on the dress, I rented this dress for a Sunday brunch wedding. When it arrived, I felt like it might have been TOO nice for the occasion. But as they say, it's better to be overdressed than underdressed so I went along with it. I'm glad I did! I had strangers (& friends!) complimenting me the entire wedding. The smallest part of my body is my bust/rib cage (size 2-4) area and my hips/butt are usually a size 8-10 so this fit was perfect. I did have to wear fabric tape to keep the deep V in place but it was worth it for a dress this gorgeous. I rented the 2R and 4R but ultimately wore the 2R due to my chest size.

Beautiful for black tie event!

This dress is beautiful. The flowers are a dusty rose color and the black and embroidering has lots of gold in it! The deep cut in the neckline adds sexiness without being too much. And the POCKETS are so amazing! I kept my phone, lipgloss, and hair accessories in them all night! My complaints would be that the bust area is a bit too large...you can't wear a bra with this dress so it's hard to fill the cup area out, the top of the straps really just need to be taken in. I would suggest getting stick on bra things (I had them but it was too hot out for them to stay on). Also, the waist is quite tight because it falls on the rib cage not the waist. So you may want to size up, I can usually wear a size 8 for dresses but this size 8 would not zip...had to wear the 10.

Pockets!

This dress fit well and was a great length even in flats. I got a ridiculous number of compliments and it was really comfortable plus who doesn't love having pockets (especially when you are working an event!) As others mentioned, the color is little different in person (more gold and rose than the picture appears but really pretty.)

Such a beautiful detailed dress!

I love love love this dress! I wore it to military ball and this picture doesn't do the dress justice. There was so much detail to the design it's impossible to see it all. Only thing is the size of the waist on the dress. I typically wear an 8 and this 10 fit my waist perfectly because it zips over my ribcage and not my natural waist. Other than that, it was perfect and I felt like my dress stood out!

Love. Love. Love. I had so many compliments on this dress and I felt amazing in it!

Felt like it was a little large in the chest, I'm a 34c and I used double sided tape, I'm also very short, had I gone a size larger it would have been far too long! I will rent this one again!

showstopper!

I wore this to my friends wedding when I was informed my original pick came back damaged so I chose this style instead. Everything happens for a reason and this was one of my favorite dresses I have worn! I cannot count the amount of times I was taken aside and given compliments on the dress. It was comfortable easy to dance in and has pockets!! The only thing I will say is unless you are large chested, you will probably want to fashion tape the top.

This dress was stunning! It was a hit at the wedding.

This dress was a hit!! It's shorter in the front and longer in the back. I'm pretty short about five feet even so with heals it came to my ankles hen dragged in the back which was stunning. It's very low in the front so if you have a larger chest it may be too much. I am flat chested so it was perfect. Highly suggest this dress!

So whimsical and elegant. My boyfriend couldn't wait to show me off to his family!

The dress was pretty large in the bust. When I tried it on in-store the fabric was less worn so it seemed to fit tighter against my chest. However when I received the dress it was pretty loose - almost dangerously so if you know what I mean! If you're smaller on top I would definitely recommend a size or even two down. I wore it for my boyfriends big sisters wedding and I received so. many. compliments. People came up to me all night to tell me how beautiful I looked in the dress. It was just covered enough to remain classy but the back out gives it a little spice so it was perfect for a formal family wedding.

Beautiful! Everyone loved this dress!

The fit was definitely true to size. I felt like a princess in this dress. I was complimented all night long, even just walking down the street a random woman came up to me and asked to see the front and back. It was absolutely beautiful and comfortable. My only advice is to be aware of your chest area, I kept fixing my breasts to keep them from coming out. It's low cut, so use lots of tape.

Beautiful dress that I want to keep forever!

I wore this dress to an upscale wedding and the reactions to the dress both at the wedding and on Facebook after I posted a picture were glowing - so many people kept telling me how beautiful I looked. Nothing like a good ego boost! I loved having the pockets and loved how even though I forgot all the jewelry I was going to wear with it, that it really didn't matter and the dress was great just by itself. Throw on some nude pumps, and you're good to go! As noted in the other reviews. This dress's waist doesn't go down to your natural waist, but rather stops at the bottom portion of your rib cage (although if you have a shorter torso, that may not be true). Also as previously noted, the bust area needs some fashion tape to make sure there are no free shows. The length was perfect when wearing ~3" heels. I have a size 4 upper body and around a size 10 lower body, and this dress was easily wearable considering those opposite measurements... it probably could even be bump-friendly, too. Wish I could keep this dress forever, although I'm not sure when I'd be able to wear it again!

Dress was comfortable & flattering. It was loose up top, if you have a smaller chest you will need tape or a safety pin. If yo like attention this the dress for you.

Be prepared for lots of cleavage.

I wore this without a bra and had to pin it to try to cover up a little more but still showed a ton of cleavage. I was ok with that just be prepared! Material is very thick but no too heavy. Back is super cute.

Beautiful dress, I got tons of compliments!

I am normally a size 2, but went with the zero after trying it on in store. The waist was a bit tight but manageable, and the top was generously cut-- even with my large chest I had a lot of tape keeping things in place! The high low hem made it easy to not worry about the length for a short gal like myself. All in all the fit wasn't perfect but it didn't detract from the look at all-- I got tons of compliments on the dress and I loved it!! Really perfect for a black tie event.

Beautiful fabric, eye-catching gown

Love the heavy fabric and slight sparkle of this gown, which I wore to a "mountain formal" Colorado wedding. The length was perfect with my two-inch cowboy boots. The plunge was even deeper than I thought, and fashion tape prevented wardrobe malfunctions but didn't really provide sufficient support, so I ended up changing into something more danceable for the reception. I would probably not recommend this dress to anyone larger than a C-cup.

Pros and Cons

The dress arrived looking less than what I expected. There was a lot more gold than I was expecting and it looked like it had seen better days. The reviews of being tight in the ribs was understandable as it was the tightest fitting part of the dress but I found it manageable and comfortable all night. The chest area actually fit me very well and I did not experience any of the concerns others have expressed. I used a sticky paper like bra that was perfect. I used a little fashion tape just to be safe. The length was great in the back which I was worried about. I have rented several times from RTR and each time I have been less than impressed when the dress arrives - BUT when hair and makeup done - it is a completely different story. I received many compliments and for the first year at this event there was no one there wearing the same dress. I really wish RTR would track what events a dress will show up at...

Gorgeous dress

Loved this dress! As always the reviews were dead on. I was a little worried about the neckline and it was very low cut. I had to pin it since my formal affair was work related. But one strategically placed pin did the trick. It was comfortable and perfect for length with 4" heels. Received tons of compliments! Rent the runway has never failed me - looking forward to my next rental!
