Elegant, eye-catching and comfortable

Although more formal than most other NYE party dresses, this dress stood out as elegant and beautiful. It's flattering, comfortable and allows a regular bra. You don't need to bother with spanx! At 5'6 and 1/2", I wore heels (but not platforms) and it skimmed my toes in front, leaving about a 2 inch train. I received compliments (primarily from women!) all evening. This is a must-rent!

It was easy for me to choose a size based on other reviews and pictures.

I absolutely loved this dress! This was my first time using RTR and I will say that it won't be my last. The dress was extremely comfortable and very beautiful in person. I rented this dress for my Mardi Gras Ball and was able to dance all night in it as it had more give than I imagined. I was really nervous about choosing a size however having so many other reviews and pictures to base my decision on made it so much easier! Thank you RTR!

Received many compliments during the event and once photos were posted! Loved it!!

I am 5'2" 118lbs and have an athletic build (thicker legs.) I did not receive the 0, so had to wear the 2R, which fit great but I think I could have worn the 0R. The dress is long. I had to wear 5 inch heals and it still had a little bit of a train. When you put it on you will find a way to make the length work. The dress is gorgeous. I didn't find the weight of the dress to be too heavy to where I noticed it once it was on. Super comfortable!

Simply stunning.

The dress fit like a glove and I received so many compliments. Multiple guests of the black tie wedding approached me and told me I had the best dress of the evening. I didn't want to give it back! Pictures do not do this dress justice, it is incredible.

Beautiful dress - plenty of compliments!

It's an amazingly beautiful dress! I kept getting compliments all night long from people I know to be stingy with compliments! I only had one option, 2R, for the weekend I needed. I scoured the reviews and I found that it may work. It turns out that it does! However, it's really long. I'm 5'3" and wore 4" heels. As you can see from the photo, the dress was barely sweeping the floor, so people kept stepping on it. If I had the option for a petite size, I would have taken it. It turns out that the dress was perfect! It was not too tight and not too loose. It's heavy because of all the sequins, but it moves really nicely. I like the fit and the fact that I could wear a regular bra underneath. That really makes this a beautiful but COMFORTABLE dress. I wish I didn't have to return this dress...

I wore this dress to a friend's black tie wedding and it fit beautifully!

This dress is stunning!!! I got compliments all night. Although I could have worn either the 0 or 2, I wore the 0L because of the length with heels. I would totally recommend this dress to anyone for a formal occasion.

Amazing glittering gown attracted lots of compliments and I felt special all night long.

Fit true to size. Zipper was tough to get up without a friend just because of the material the hidden-style zipper had to traverse. As others have said, the dress is heavier than expected. I could wear a normal bra with it, so that was a plus. The front was shorter than I expected. I didn't think my shoes would be as visible as they were. (I went with nude Patton pumps.) and the back dragged behind a bit in true mermaid style... Which means dodging puddles in the rain. I wore it for my best friend's wedding as a bridesmaid. We were allowed to choose our own dresses in the long/champagne/gold theme. I lucked out because I rented mine - I spent the least and looked the best!

I did not receive it. RTR you need to remove as a rental option in sizes 2 &4 and make a note of it

I wanted to wear this gown but a few days before my shipping Date I was informed they would not be able to ship it. RTR guest service is always helpful and I was able To get something to wear.

The quality and beauty of the dress was amazing!

I loved this gown but unfortunately I didn't get my complete order. They sent me the 2L but not the 4L which is what I planned on wearing. I somehow squeezed into the 2L and wore it just fine but the 4L would've fit better in the bust area. Besides that this dress was unbelievably gorgeous and actually very comfortable!! I wore it to a black-tie wedding at the Ritz Carlton and got many compliments. In the end I didn't want to return it!

As Mother of the Bride I felt fabulous! Dress is stunning and everyone loved it. RTR Rocks!!!!!

Fit was perfect. The dress is a little bit heavy with all the sequence but well worth the Wow factor! Used a little double sided tape to secure the neckline. Worked very nicely.

Wonderfully stunning

I wore this beauty to my friends wedding and received so many compliments all night long! The dress fit beautifully. I wore very high heals since I am so short, but even though the dress touched the floor it wasn't to cumbersome to walk in. I was told this dress was the Ferrari of dresses that night!! I think that sums up how this dress looks! Stunning! Thanks again RTR!

I rented this gown for my Gatsby-esque Prom -- jaw-dropping -- I received so many compliments

The dress was beautiful; I felt like I was walking on the red carpet! The dress fit perfectly everywhere except for the chest -- it was gigantic! I wear a 34B (A.K.A I have pretty small boobs); however, the cut of the dress was very deep and the fabric was gaping around my chest. If I were to even slightly slouch my shoulders you could see down my bra. Luckily, my step-mom was able to work in some quick-fixes to get the dress to fit perfectly and I was able to feel 100% beautiful and comfortable.

The detail and beauty of this dress is unforgettable! I loved wearing it!

I am 5'9 and the long was a perfect length for heels. I would imagine that if you were much taller the dress could feel short. I generally wear a 6L or 8L but the 6L fit well. I would say this dress runs a little large. Loved the fit and quality. It is a show stopper.

This is the most FABULOUS, glamorous dress I've ever worn!!

I honestly cannot say enough about how incredible this dress was for me. I wore it to a very formal black tie affair in London. I got a million compliments on it from everyone at the event and then from everyone I know who saw pictures. This is hands down the most beautiful dress I've ever worn! It did run a bit large, as I'm usually a 2 or 4 and I was a 2. I'm also 5'7" and the length was perfect with 3 inch heels. A long would have been too long.

AmandaSeptember 24, 2014
The dress looks beautiful on you! I've wanted to wear RTR dresses to events in Europe, but assumed it wouldn't work with international mail. How did you manage that?
AllieSeptember 24, 2014
Thank you! I asked RTR, but they do not ship over seas. Since I was only gone for a week, I actually had to rent it for 8 days, so I just returned in in the states.

Stunning MOH Dress!

I wore this dress as Maid of Honor and felt beautiful all night. The 0 and 2 fit very closely so I went with the 0 as I prefer my clothes more fitted. The dress might have stretched out slightly over the night, but nothing major. I have an hourglass figure (read: round behind) and this dress was very figure flattering and fit well. I wore 3 inch heels and the dress just grazed the ground, There is a very slight train at the back. I received so many compliments and was sad to send this dress back.

Stunner

Have never received so many compliments on a dress in my life. It was also completely comfortable to wear all night. It runs slightly big so if you're between sizes I would size down. I'm usually a 0-2 and the 0R fit perfectly. If you have a black tie occasion you should 100% rent this.

Excellent option for an Old Hollywood Glam wedding!

Got tons of compliments on this dress - it was a bit heavy , but that's to be expected. As other reviewers have mentioned, I would get the long if you're 5'6" or over. It is definitely glam to the max!! My only complaint is that I ordered this dress in two sizes and because the second size was damaged, I received an alternative "upgraded" dress. Although the second option was more expensive to rent, it received bad reviews and was not in my "favorites." It even felt a little Mother of the Bride. I'm just glad this one worked out! I highly recommend this to anyone going to a black tie event!

I didn't end up wearing the dress

I thought the dress ran large but I normally wear a 10 or a 12 so perhaps the 10 would have fit. I am 5'11 and I thought the 12L was too short so sizing down wasn't going to make it better. I sent it back and did not wear it. Customer service was very helpful.

AnniMay 5, 2014
this review has probably been the most helpful to me. i'm in between sizes right now, because i've lost some weight. i was really worried about either getting a 10 or 12 in this dress.. now i know i should definitely get a 10. just now have to decide whether or not i should get a 8 or 10! thanks.

Ran shorter than expected, but still got lots of compliments!

The size 2 was suprisingly short and usually a 0 or 2 is fine, but I thankfully had some flats that I could wear for the wedding and I still got lots of compliments. The detailing is stunning and it photographs really well.

I spent the night feeling like a celebrity, and practically glowed from the inside out.

The fit was fantastic, especially for girls like me with smaller chests! The dress hugs every curve without being too tight, and was very comfortable for long term wear. (Plus- you can wear a regular bra!) I would recommend smooth heels though, my original shoes had sequins and I was worried they would catch on the inside of the dress. That being said, you don't need a lot of jewelry with this- the dress is a jewel in and of itself. The dress doesn't wear you, YOU wear the dress and feel great doing it. It is on the heavier side but is not uncomfortably heavy. I spent the entire night gliding across the dancefloor and shaking it with my friends and got SO many compliments. I would definitely recommend this dress 100 times because it really is magnificent!

I have a very small torso so it was a little bit large there, but nothing awful. Other than that I absolutely adored this dress, and I felt like a million bucks. I'm so sad I had to send it back.

STUNNING!

Vintage Glam- I had people complimenting me all night!! I felt stunning and confident. The back of the dress is a few inches longer then the front and I did have one or two people step on the back but it wasn't a huge issue. The flow of the dress when you walk was my favorite- felt like I was on the red carpet! I wore a regular bra, no issues with it showing. I wore 4 inch beige heels.

A JAWDROPPING WINNER!!!

Hands down the BEST dress I have EVER worn! I wore this to the Tony awards this past week and felt like a celebrity! And a celebrity (Kevin Bacon) even did a double take when I walked past him (no joke -- that really happened!) Sleek, elegant, attention drawing yet tasteful. When I first tried this on my boyfriend's jaw dropped! The fit was snug in all the right places and I loved being able to wear a regular bra. I'm 5'2" so I had to wear 4 inch heels with the dress to make it the right length on my body -- even the regular is long! And this dress is heavy-- RTR will send you two separate return envelopes for this rental. If I could I would wear this dress every day! If RTR ever sells this dress I am buying it!

So many compliments all night long!

This is one of my favorite dresses so far! Pros: Gorgeous color, great on every skin tone! It made my boyish figure have such a great shape! Sexy but not scandalous. I can wear a normal bra!! Great fabric and flow. Cons: so so so heavy, I mean this dress weighs about 2 lbs! I ordered a 0R and my back up was the 2R. They fit virtually the same! I think the 2 was about an inch longer, but it fit exactly the same. I would've like to have worn the 0 since it was shorter, but the fabric around the neck and waistline was wrinkled. I tried steaming and ironing, but it was really set in. Minor detail, but it made my skin look a bit wrinkly from a distance. The 2 fit the same and was not wrinkly. I'm 5'5 and wore 4 inch heels and the dress was just touching the ground, so for stairs and longer walks I had to lift it up. Like another reviewer stated, the sequins and the back and bottom of the dress will get caught in your heels a bit, so no fast walking! :) The fabric is very thick and heavy. The heavy wasn't all that bad since the dress always fell perfectly without having to adjust it. The thickness didn't bother me too much since I was indoors and in air-conditioning, but for any outdoor event in summer, this will make you sweat. I was sweating trying it on in my house! lol. All in all, I received the most compliments all night long. A lot of other women were wearing sequins, but the pattern on this dress makes it so much more interesting and different. Side note* another reviewer stated she received 2 bags bc of the weight of the dress, but I only received one. I asked the style specialist and was told one bag to return is fine. It is very difficult to squeeze these heavy beautiful gowns into one bag. Two return bags would be helpful for this particular gown.

Was a gorgeous dress for a black tie wedding. I got a ton of compliments!

The fit was great. The sequins under the right arm were horrible though! Scratched my arm so bad hat we had to bandage it during the wedding to keep it from getting worse!

Beautiful dress, just not for me

This dress fit beautifully. It's much more simple than I expected in the cut/fit but the sequins obviously make it much more formal. This dress, however, looked terrible on my skin tone. I am mocha-colored and I seemed to blend into the dress. It's got much more brown undertones than gold. Still a beautiful dress, though!

Perfection!!!

This was my first time trying RTR and I was a little nervous. However, ones I saw the dress I knew I had made the right choice. Even though I usually wear a 4 and that's what I initially ordered....thank god for a free back up size because the 2 fit amazing since the 4 was a little to big. This dress was beyond gorgeous and I felt absolutely beautiful in it. Let's not forget the fact that everyone was at awwww when they saw me. :)

Just didn't work

Where do I begin? First, the bead work makes the dress heavy. It also makes the dress a little over the top. I rented it for a formal NYC wedding at a glam venue and I think I would've felt a little self conscious about how sparkly it was. But ultimately I didn't wear it because it was thoroughly unflattering. The other ladies in the photos on RTR look lovely in it but it just didn't work on me at all. I'm short waisted with wider shoulders and that band across the torso made me look wider and while I love figure hugging mermaid styles this one didn't look good at all. I think it was the beading that made it fall in a weird way. I'd recommend it for those with narrow frames and longer torsos.

This dress is the bomb

I ordered this dress three days before my prom after the dress I originally wanted got ruined by the previous renter. I didn't even know if I liked it, but when i tried it on it was as if this dress was my long lost twin sister in dress form. It's seriously gorgeous. I may have cried a little when I had to send it back. Its perfect in every way. (well actually it was a bit long for dancing) but its ****flawless.
