Gorgeous dress detailing is awesome, just was a little too big.

Runs fairly large, I am very busty and the waist was very bunchy , I think you would be OK if you were smaller chested. Otherwise absolutely gorgeous dress.

I loved the look of the dress. However the sleeves are much too large and looked baggy.

The sleeves are not tight on the skin as it looks like in the picture. The sleeves were baggy and it didn't look right. I would not recommend this if you have smaller arms. The design of the dress is really pretty otherwise.

The Perfect Classic And Fun Party Dress

I rented this dress for my 10 year high school reunion. It was so much fun. I received so many complements and it was really easy to wear. The built-in slip under the dress did stick out a little bit, but overall it is a fantastic piece.

Great party dress!

Rented this dress for a holiday party and worked out great. It's different from the usual sparkle party dress and looks better in person than the photos. Material was comfortable, not super stretchy, and a little itchy around the neck but overall it was great.

Thin inner layer

I was very surprised to find the inner layer to be very thin, nearly sheer when I held it up by light of the window. The material is also scratchy as others have said.

Stunning Dress..!!

This dress was a backup because the one I had originally rented was not available. I can tell you that I am so happy that the other was not available because this dress was amazing. It fit great and the pictures do not do it justice! I received so many compliments!

Exceeded my expectations.

I loved the dress as well as my boyfriend. It was classy yet sexy for our Valentine's Day dinner in Chicago. The only problem I had with the dress, was the slip was longer than then sheer part. It may as well been due to the dress being really snug in my hips and the material not forgiving..

Beautiful dress. Very flattering.

I actually didn't wear this dress as preferred another style for my event. This dress fit well and looked great but I felt it was a bit conservative for the event I was attending since it had long sleeves and I was planning to wear tights. My only complaint is that the sleeves were too long for me and seemed itchy when I tried the dress on.

Wow! Flattering high-end dress

I wish I had taken a photo. This dress was stunning. It is sexy, yet not inappropriately so. The quality and details of the fabric is amazing. The material isn't stretchy though. I think it runs small. I usually wear a size 2, ddd I took a 38. It fit perfectly. I am 5'2" and 32ddd. At the moment I am 120 pounds.

I cannot stress how much I LOVED this dress!

This was my second time renting from RTR, and this was my backup dress. I am so happy with it! I recently lost weight, and am in between a 6 & 8, and based on reviews, I went with the 44, with the 46 as a backup. The 44 fit perfectly! I had room to move. I was worried about it being too short (I'm 5'10"), but it was a great length. I didn't feel like I was constantly pulling it down all night. I wore a normal strapless bra, which I felt kept peeking up above the lining, but my husband said he didn't notice. I also read in reviews that the lining at the bottom hung out while sitting, which I did notice, but it didn't look bad. I was so happy with this dress, and sad to send it back!

simple dress, wore with a blazer for an evening work meeting.

Fit well. Not tight at all - appropriate for work. Need to wear a strapless bra. A bit on the short side, and I'm not tall.

Subtle sparkle

I liked this a lot. The length was perfect, the sleeves were great. I have wide hips and it was fine in that region. A great dress for a formal event where you want to keep things modest

Fantastic Cocktail dress

Loved this dress! The subtle shine gave it just enough oomph to stand out from all of the other LBD's at this event. Not sure if it's because I'm lanky or it just ran a bit smaller, but the sleeves were about an inch too short on me. Also, it's a bit on the shorter side over all (I'm 5'6" and at least 5'9" in heels, which I wore) - but, I only really noticed when I was sitting. Didn't matter much, since I loved this SO much! Where the dress is unlined (top and arms) is a little scratchy, but still not enough to get me to NOT wear this.

wore for evening out New year's eve. Looks even better in person

The glitter effect was subtle in a good way: more elegant than glam. I got tons of head turns (I know that sounds obnoxious, but ladies, you **know** you know when that happens), but didn't feel like I was thinking about the dress at all because it was both beautiful but comfortable. No tugging, etc. And it was nice but not "show a bunch of skin" sexy. Which was also perfect for a bitter cold winter night.

Sparkle for a Night

This dress was perfect for a fun birthday dinner in NYC. The long sleeves were perfect for slightly chilled weather, but still comfortable in a crowded restaurant. Dress isn't too clingy so if you like a tighter feel I would size down.

My friends had a beautiful wedding on a rooftop in down town Indianapolis.

The dress was definitely a hit! It was definitely tight, but wasn't too revealing. Also, it was easy to dance it - which is a deciding factor when shopping for dresses to wear to weddings. The only thing is we were at an outside venue in the summer, so I could have done without long sleeves. Would have been better if we were in the air conditioning.

This dress is stunning!!!

The pictures don't do it justice because the dress is so much more beautiful in person. I wore it to my first holiday party of the season and received dozens of compliments. It fits very true to size and was comfortable to wear. I highly recommend it!

My Boss saying my husband and I were BEST DRESSED!

This dress is beautiful and fits like a glove. The overlay is delicate so be careful when putting it on, but I had no worry about it the rest of the night. I received so many compliments at the company Christmas party. It was my first year with the company, and I am so glad that I dazzled the way I did. I definitely recommend this dress!

Did not end up wearing, but fit great.

So, somehow my first two dresses I ordered were unavailable because someone returned them both late. After being extremely frustrated I found this one in an 46 (size 10) and a different dress. I got lucky and they both fit. In the end I felt the most confident in the other dress. But this dress was beautiful and fun. I had to wear spanx because I still have a little belly from being a mom :). It is form fitting and will show any bumps you may have. But it's a fun dress!

Beautiful dress

I wore it to a holiday party. I typically wear a 0 and think I was between an 38 and a 40. I went with the 38 as the 40 made me look rather boxy. I agree with other commenters that if you are bothered by itchy clothes, you might not enjoy wearing this dress, but I found it tolerable. I wore it with a nubra, mostly because I didn't have a strapless that didn't emerge from the top of it, which was rather low. It is a very versatile dress - I was thinking gold accessories would look funny with it because in the pictures the overlay looks silver, but in fact it's more of a gunmetal silver than can be paired with any metal you like. I felt very fancy in it. If you are self conscious about any of your curves, it definitely doesn't have much structure to hold you in place. Highly recommended! I would choose it again for a fancy event.

Manus x Machina-themed college semi-formal. Turned heads all night!

I felt absolutely stunning in this dress! It's a great balance of sexy and classy, with beautiful details. I have a big butt so I was afraid it wouldn't fit or that it would be too short/revealing but it actually fit great. I was able to dance in it comfortably all night! The only cons: it seems to be made for a straight or athletic body type, as it was a bit loose on the top yet perfect for my hips. The slip also showed a bit, about an inch, but didn't bother me much.

Work dress to rooftop happy hours, easy!

I'm 5'6 - 150 lbs - 36D cup - 30 inche waist. I really loved the fit of this dress for my hour glass shape. It was light weight and easy. Dressy enough for the office setting and then going out for happy hours. I have a vlog on IG and showed it off.
