Gorgeous drape! So many compliments!

This dress was stunning! I got compliments all night long! The cut and drape are just phenomenal. Shows a little leg and perfectly framed my tattoos. The bodice was a teeny bit tight when I first put it on but I got used to it. The waist hit perfectly at my natural waist so I didn't even need to wear spanx! Dancing was fun because of how it moved. Highly recommended for any black tie or formal events! Rose gold jewelry went perfectly with it.

Very pretty and unique. Couldn't get zipped over rib cage.

I can't wait to try it in a size 6! It was really cool looking. I was worried it was going to be too formal, but the fabric made it less so. I would have needed tall heels at 5'2" because it was a bit long. I just couldn't get it zipped as it was way too tight.

I did not wear this dress.

Because of my body shape, it fit snuggly in the waste but was way too big in the chest. I couldn't do anything to make this look right. Plus, the fabric was off-putting. My boyfriend said it felt like a drape or curtain. While I liked the colors and design, there were just too many other negatives for this one.

Tons of compliments!

I wore this to a gala. The dress is beautiful. The fabric was heavier than I was expecting, but no complaints as it was pretty chilly the day of the event. I did wear a strapless bra with this, the sides were high enough that the bra did not show. Even in heels the dress reached the floor. 10/10!

Wanted to love this but it was so disappointing

The fabric was WAY too heavy. It reminded me of my mother’s heavy curtains. Zipper could almost not support such heavy fabric. And the slit wasn’t high enough so I rendered it basically pointless

Showstopper

Prepare to feel like an Oscar. Friends, family, strangers... everyone complimented me on this dress. I felt statuesque, elegant, and downright amazing. The fabric is a little "rough". So if you have sensitive skin, I would not recommend. The fabric also has very little give. I would size up, and then size down for your backup. Even a little big, this dress just falls into place. I am 5'6" and I was tripping over the "long". Even in heals. Tall ladies, this dress would be perfect.

Great dress. Lots of complements. The heavy material made it lay well & a bra wasn't needed. Yay!

I think I could have gone down a size but it still looked great. Supper flattering on my rectangle shaped body.

Beautiful and Fun

This dress was a backup dress for a wedding, and I came so close to wearing it except for a rip in the seam at the zipper! Sadness. As noted in other reviews, the location of the seam at the waist and the fact that the fabric has no elasticity means there's zero forgiveness there. I disagree with some of the negative reviews that the fabric is overly heavy. It's got some weight to it - enough so that it doesn't feel very "floaty" - but definitely didn't feel like I was wearing my mother's drapes like I read elsewhere! I wouldn't have needed a bra for this because of the texture and lack of stretch in the fabric, but ymmv.

Unique in a sea of black and navy

I wore this for a military ball. It was flattering with a fun short peekaboo on the right side. I received several compliments and felt like I stood out among the black and navy dresses, but it still wasn't too showy.

It s a standout.

Loved this dress. Received lots of compliments. The color is gorgeous and has gold threading throughout. I think it is flattering for women with curves (like me!). It hid my problem areas and love that it shows a little leg in the front. Gorgeous dress -- will rent again!

This dress is so pretty when the light hits it and is very flattering on the body. The ruby color is gorgeous; especially when the gold glimmers.

Tons of compliments!

I wore this to a formal gala and had to present on stage. I needed something unique that was unlikely to be replicated, and this dress hit the mark 100%! Very flattering top, and the flowy bottom made it easy to move. Stunning but comfortable!

Military ball stunner

The dress hit in all the right places and was incredibly lightweight, but still had a beautiful drape. I am newly postpartum but still felt so confident since the gown emphasized my legs and arms and the skirt kicked out at just the right spot to slim my waist. I received compliments all night and once again loved my experience with RTR.

Too Small for Busty Girls

I picked this dress as a back up and I'm glad because neither the 10 (my actually size) or the 12 fit me. I sized up to the 12 because my chest is so large I was worried the 10 might be too snug, but neither dress fit. The dress was really pretty and I liked it a lot, but there is absolutely no give at all and it is a little small. So if you have a larger chest size up a couple sizes. If I were to rent this again I honestly think I may need a 14 or 16.

I didn't wear this because it was too long (I only had 3 inch heels).

It would have been great on a taller person. The bodice is tight and I would need to wear a body slimmer. I may rent again for another event sometime with the 10 regular length.

So pretty!

The top definitely ran a bit small. The rest of me could have fit into a smaller size, but the halter part of the dress would not close over my chest. But that could have also been a breast size issue.

The length and cut are perfect, but if you have a wider back, or high rib cage, go up a size. It's narrow around the chest area. Beautiful gown.

Glamorous

I'll admit when I first pulled the dress out of the bag, I wasn't sold because of the fabric. However, I'm so glad I took the chance on this rental. The dress fits true to size and the silhouette and hi-low slit is really flattering. The gold threading woven tooth he ruby gives such a beautiful contrast and sheen in the light. I received so many compliments and felt like Hollywood in this dress.

Loved this. It looks amazing on, the color is phenomenal. Comfortable and could wear for hours! Also, it's well-structured enough that I could get away with not wearing a bra which was great.

Amazing dress!

I loved this dress! It was super elegant and got a ton a compliments! It was a little loose in the chest on me, but I am not big chested so not really the dresses fault! The length was perfect with heels, I switched to flats after my feet started aching and it still wasn't super long/dragging the floor! Made me feel like a queen!

I love the look of this dress! Especially the leg reveal.

I didn't actually wear it because it was a bit too tight and there were not two sizes available to send so I only had the 4. With a lazy holiday season adding a couple extra pounds, it was just a bit too tight. But if there had been a size 6 available I would have worn it to the event in a heartbeat!

WAY prettier and sparklier in person!!!

Was a little loose in the chest area which I normally do not have a problem with - put a padded bra on and that helped.

This dress is absolutely freaking gorgeous!!

This dress was fantastic. The fabric is a bit rough to the touch, but doesn't look that way at all. The fabric is also a little stiff, but that's part of the magic -- it allows it to drape beautifully. The peek-a-boo leg is subtle and gorgeous. The halter style is flattering and I wasn't messing with the top at all. I wore a strapless bra under it, but really could have gone without. I received a zillion compliments and felt like a princess all night. Perfect for a wedding and dancing the night away at the reception. The pictures really don't do the dress justice -- it shimmers so beautifully with every movement. I will rent this beauty again!!

Unique cut and color

Didn't think this was all that flattering. Definitely drew attention to the hips. Some said the fabric was heavy... i thought it was great! The halter top cut also accentuates the upper arm/boob area. Got a lot of compliments but didn't feel as glamorous as I had hoped. Decent rental. Probably wouldn't rent this gown again.

Tight through ribcage so didn't wear.

It was really tight through my ribcage and bust so I didn't wear it. I'm 5'9 and the Long touched the floor when I was barefoot so in heels, would have been a little short. Would have been cute otherwise.

Great dress, lot of compliments.

I'm 5'8, size 12, and dress length was perfect with a 4 inch heel. The only negative for me was the seam at the waist. It was a tad too tight, and cut a little into my tummy, causing a little bit of a bulge (I was able to mostly hide it though, with a miraclesuit), but if the seam was any tighter and it would have been uncomfortable.

I rented this and another dress. I ended up wearing the other dress, but I liked this dress as well.

The fit was true to size but was long enough that you would have to wear heels. The dress was nice and the fabric was thick and of good quality.
