Much fancier in person! The gold is stand-out!

True to size. The waist hs a bit of elastic which makes it form fitting at the waist and spreads out at the hips! The slit is really high (front/middle) but the two layers overlap so you'll only see it while moving/walking. The bow you tie in the back is super cute! Also the chest is super low cut, but it does have a button to clasp it, I kept it buttoned. The L is long enough to wear with heels (I'm 5'10"). Overall this dress in gorgeous! The gold really stands out!

Engagement photos

I rented this to wear for my engagement shoot last fall on Coney Island and realized I never shared a photo from it! This is such a fabulous, glam dress, and really caught the light from the sun setting. This was my first RTR Unlimited rental, so I was wary since I have the proportions of an adult toddler. All in all, it fit with the exception of the bust (too big) and the length (way too long, but heels helped a bit). And it came with tags on and who doesn't love that!?

Perfect Dress!

Perfect in every way - forgiving, flattering, comfortable and stunning! Regular length hit right at the floor wearing 3" heels (I'm 5'6"). It is very low cut, so I opted for no bra. The 2R fits like a true Medium - best for a size 6/8.

This dress is stunning! Great for a party - looks more formal than the photo shows. Runs large!

Love this dress - felt so glam in it. I'm normally a 4 but the 0 fit fine so runs large! I'm 5'1 and it's super long, so that was annoying. But the gold is more glam than the pic shows. It's got a nice low v neck which gives it an edge but there's a button if you want to control the cleavage. Love the slit too!

Fun, sparkly and ITCHY dress

I couldn't decide if I loved or disliked this dress. It was sparkly and fun and flowy, and it was comfortable to wear except that it was ITCHY. I wore it for a big Thanksgiving party which was great cause the high waist tie covered the belly well for lots of eating opportunity! I think it runs pretty big/long because I usually wear 2-4 Long in dresses and ordered a 0R (all that was available) in this dress and it was still a bit baggy on the chest and crazy long even for a 5' 9.5" lady like me! I was sweeping the floors all night in this. I have a thin upper body and slender arms and felt like the fabric was a bit too much for my body type and I was drowning in it. Probably would look amazing in full chested women. The slit was also much higher than expected but because there is so much overlapping fabric, I was able to keep it closed for the family friendly event. My husband wanted me to buy the dress but in the end something about it didn't felt good and I sent it back right after the event.

Classy and fun with tons of gold

Loved the length since I could wear flats. Light enough not to drag on the ground. The top was a bit big so pinning at the shoulders was necessary.

As others mentioned the gold is much more pronounced in person. Rey glam bohemian vibes. Rented for a NYE wedding. It's pretty perfect.

Unbelievable

Words cannot describe how much i adore this dress. I got oodles of compliments at my holiday party. One woman actually searched me out to talk about the dress. Its has a 80's dynasty vibe to it. Low cut and high slit. Work it!!

Gorgeous! Loved the sparkle

I rented this dress for a black tie wedding in NYC in December. The dress is so gorgeous in person. The gold threading is so fancy. I did find the dress a little itchy but it was so worth it! The slit is super high as well but I used a small safety pin to keep it closed. Wish I could own this one!

this dress is hands down the best! RTRmodel made this dress look awful. It's the hidden gem of RTR

Hands down the best dress on RTR. Never would have clicked on it. Then I saw it in the store. It was exactly what I needed this season. Formal event at the MGM and received non stop compliments from both sex. Dancing was epic in it. Slit is high. I would have sizes up for a more loose cheat area. Chest is deep. I'm usually a size 6. I promise you... rent this dress. It's everything. Random girls started calling it the hidden gem of RTR. In person the colors, cut, fabric are amazing. Be a rockstar and the queen you are and walk those legs in this dress. You will not disappoint anyone. It's by far #1 on this site for winter formal/party events.

Amazing dress! Glam and sheer. Dressier than it looks.

Wore this dress for a winter wedding and loved it! It fit a little big, I got both the 1R and 1L and honestly am not sure which was which. They both were pretty long. Also the top was baggy ( maybe I needed up wearing the 1L- pretty big - as in if my shoulders were an inch or two higher it would have fit better). But I pinned it back and it was fine. Overall, really had a great time in this dress! You need to watch out for the slit, which I also pinned, but after this picture, so you can see how it opened up with a surprise breeze. Thanks RTR for a great experience with shipping and easy returns. Even choosing the dress the enjoyable. Highly recommended!

LONG. and a bit itchy

Overall I really liked the dress, but I agree with other reviewers that it's especially long. I wore with heels and was still dragging on the floor. The material didn't bother me at first, but got a little irritating after wearing for a while. Still a cute dress, especially for maternity as the waist sits nicely above the bump and has an elastic back.

I took this pic at 1:30am after a NYE party. The dress was flattering, comfortable, and eye-catching. Don't wear if you're trying to blend in!

Great dress!

I loved this dress and got a lot of compliments. I am 20 weeks pregnant, so it was nice to have some room without having to worry about size when I ordered. I will say that it may need to be pinned if you're larger up top. I'm DD right now and needed to do so. Other than that, great dress and it felt great all night!

Loved it!

Just spent 30 mins uploading a pic and writing a comprehensive review. Pressed submit so not sure what happened to it. I'm not going through that again so, in a nutshell: Beautiful dress. I'm 5'10 and wore the 2L with flats. Lots of cleavage so I pinned it but it didn't look great. I recommend this beautiful gown particularly if you have awesome cleavage.

Perfect Dress for Black Tie Event

This was one of my favorite rentals! I received a lot of compliments and it was extremely comfortable. I needed to use safety pins for the chest because the snap was in an odd place and caused a weird gap, as well as one on the slit in order to avoid a full on Marilyn moment if it was windy. I am 5'5" and the Regular length was perfect with a mid size heel height. Overall, I would definitely rent this dress again and it was perfect for a formal event with lots of dancing.

Glamorous!

Didn't wear it but wished I could have. Loved that it has sleeves. Faux wrap style creates sexy slit for legs. Lightweight but well made material. My waist is a bit thick for it but could have worn it and been fine. Great length. Flattering neckline even for smallish chest.

I received so many compliments throughout the night and everyone told me I should buy this dress!

Rented this for my husband's rugby banquet. Was a little nervous because I NEVER wear dresses like this, but I am so glad I got it. The regular length was too short for me (I'm 5'11). The 1 Long was the perfect length and fit (I weigh about 165). The only cons: I had to wear two bras, in small chested and the boob area was saggy; the front slit is HIGH so I had to close it up a little bit with a safety pin. Wish I could buy this dress. I loved it so much and have never gotten so many compliments before!

LOVE LOVE LOVE

I rented this for a black tie party and it was PERFECT! I was really torn between sizes because I felt like the reviews I read were conflicting but I ended up wearing the 2L and it was perfect. If you are taller than 5'5" and plan to wear heels GET THE LONG. I'm 5'7" and the regular was way too short even without shoes on but the long was perfect.

This dress was absolutely perfect for a night time wedding in March. It was so comfortable and flowy. I am 5'10 and the long size with 3 inch heels was perfect. I received so many compliments I was tempted to buy it.

The Perfect Dress!

I wore this dress to a pre-Oscar party and received SO many compliments. It's so simple yet so gorgeous. It was beyond comfortable and looks way more beautiful in person. Pictures truly don't do it justice. I am typically a Medium but order a 1 because I read that it is a bit larger and it fit PERFECT. Highly recommend!

Not what I was hoping

In person the dress is VERY Gold. Didn't hang the way I thought , rather stiff & scratchy. Shoulders are almost like there are shoulder pads in there. Couldnt work out how to cover my bust. Bummer

Gorgeous and forgiving fit

Loved this dress! Wore it to a black tie event in NYC and got complimented. The fit is forgiving around the stomach area (my problem area!). It's low cut and I needed tape to make sure there were no wardrobe mishaps. The front slit is incredibly high but nothing that a small safety pin couldn't fix. Totally recommend!

Highly recommend this showstopper for your next formal event!

As soon as I walked into the gala, the photographer ran up to grab our photo - this dress was a showstopper. It was extremely comfortable, fit well, and made such a statement. I am average height and wanted to wear a high heel, so getting the long was a good choice. The slit was very high, which you can't see in the RTR photo, but added a little sexiness to the dress. Highly highly highly recommend!

I thought this dress was a little tacky. The gold material felt a bit cheap. It wasn't flattering in my busty frame. I would skip this one.

Flattering, comfortable, glamorous

I wore this on stage at the sundance film festival. The only size left was a 2L, but at a size 8/10, I made it work even though it was a little tight and long. Gold thread catches the light nicely.

Perfect dress

This dress is stunning. I received so many compliments all evening. It really stands out in the crowd. You will need to pin the slit because it goes up to your bellybutton. There is also a small black snap button on the front neckline that I didn't realize was there at first. The ties around the waist are long enough that you can style different ways. I'm 5'6" 145lbs and the 1R fit absolutely perfectly. This dress is seriously gorgeous. Rent it!

The compliments!!!

The dress was beautiful and I received lots of compliments. I sent the link to 3 people for their future orders. Only thing; I'm 5 ft talk and The was super long. It was good thing I planned to wear platform heels. Also guests kept stepping on the back of the dress bc of the length. Lastly, the chest area was too big. I'm a 36 C and I had to use fashion tape to hold the material down. If without the tape you could see my bra. Other than that I loved it and felt glamorous in it.

Dress is beautiful but sizing didn't work

This dress is very pretty and would great for a formal event or wedding. I got a 1R which was recommended based on my normal sizes. The dress did fit me, but it was really hard to get on over my chest, as it had zero stretch on top. I did get it on, but it just didn't fit right. Too bad! Dress is awesome and vibrant!
