The colors!

This dress is much more beautiful in person! The colors are so vibrant. I loved the pockets too. The waist fit a little snug & the top was a bit loose. I got so many compliments and would definitely rent again

Beautiful Dress!! Flattering Fit!

Love this dress! Was a bit surprised the waves were gold instead of silver as they looked in the photo, but didn't mind; I loved it anyway! Fits nicely on the waist, giving me an hourglass figure! I received many compliments! It got a little itchy by the end of the night, but absolutely beautiful and worth it!!

I got compliments all night long!

The fit around the waist was perfect! It was slightly loose in the chest area, but nothing a slightly padded bra couldn't take care of. The gold swirl in the dress is brighter than can be seen in the pictures and it definitely added to the glam of the dress! I felt like a million dollars all night long!

So flattering and elegant!

I ordered this to wear to work and then out to a work event. It was definitely fancier than it appeared online and I was really overdressed but it's ok because I'm kind of fancy anyway haha. The skirt was just much more flared and bigger than I thought so that's why it was fancy. The cut is super flattering and makes your waist look very small. It also shows off your collarbones at the top. Very fun dress for a wedding!

Stood out in a crowd of black cocktail dresses

Based on other reviews, I got the 42 and 44. The 44 fit nicely in the waist but was slightly 'gappy' at the very top. I would have had to stand with really good posture all night for it or to gap. The 42 was a little snug in the waist but perfect in the top. I went with the 42 and loved it. The black waist band does not stretch- I repeat- does not stretch. The color was amazing, the pockets were great, and the flare of the skirt made my waist look small! Got told that I had the best dress of the night in a sea of LBDs at this cocktail attire event. I am 5'11", 155 pounds, 36B, wear size 28 jeans, size 6 or 8 pants, and size 4 or 6 dresses.

The dress is a real standout!

Dress definitely runs small as other reviews indicate. I went with the size 42 and the zipper in that particular dress had been replaced. In the size 40, you could tell it was the original zipper as once zipped, the fabric covered it and it was hidden. In the 42, it was a larger plastic zipper not covered by the fabric. I still wore it as it was in the back but the zipper was not consistent with the overall quality of the dress. The dress runs small in the waist and a bit larger in the bust. The 42 was fine in the waist but definitely no extra room. The fabric was beautiful and the full skirt made a statement.

Perfect dress for a masquerade charity event

Loved this dress! It's unique and understated, and was the perfect thing for the masquerade party charity event I wore it to. It has a vintage "mad men" type cut. I have a hard time with dresses fitting my ribcage, but this dress fit perfectly

Lots of compliments at my Broadway opening night party! And pockets!

The torso was a little long for me and the bust was a little big. Unfortunately a six 6 wasn't available, so I made do.

Gorgeous pattern and cut!

This dress fit like a glove! The size 4 was a bit snug at the waist (not usually an issue for me) but fit perfectly everywhere else. My backup size 6 felt better in the waist, but was still a little snug and the top was gaping open under my arms. Went with the 4 and it was the right decision. Would not work out well for someone with a small top and moderate to large waist.

I loved this dress. I wore it to date night and I thought it was a bit dressier than I expected but great dress. I felt so fancy out in Denver.

Beautiful dress but a bit big

Beautiful dress. Luxurious material. The volume made it feel formal and grand. Wore it to the opera. I am usually a true 8 and the 46 was too big all over, especially in the top where the shoulders were very wide. If I had gotten one size smaller it would have fit better but it still looked good and I enjoyed wearing it.

This dress made me feel like a beautiful woman!The colors are vibrant! Received multiple compliments

The size 44 fit like a glove but felt like it smushed down my chest (not in a cute way) and the 46 was to large in the chest; It looked obvious that my dress didn't fit. So I was happy to wear the smaller size! I received compliments all day long! I loved that the back of the dress was longer, it made dancing so much more fun! My one complaint would be that the designer should of put in a Lining: Fabric layer on the inside of some garments. Used to conceal seam construction. The wedding was a few hours away and the seams were enough to complain about after an hour! With that said I would definitely recommend for anyone looking to feel like a million dollars!!!

Figure flattering and comfortable!

I selected this as a last minute second choice when I decided my first dress was too low cut. I loved everything about this dress, it was comfortable, flattering and the colors are gorgeous in person. I received compliments all evening!

Beautiful dress!

This dress is really flattering on. The main issue is that it runs small in the ribcage and waist. I'm normally a 4 and ordered the recommended size 40 and it zipped up and looked great, but it was definitely tight. Breathing deeply wasn't really an option with this dress on. Everything else was beautiful, though- great cut, gorgeous material. I recommend it, but size up!

Stunning Dress!

The dress was absolutely gorgeous. Perfect for a date night, cocktail affair or wedding. The colors are even prettier in person. I did have to go one size up, due to it being very fitted in the ribcage area. Keep that in mind when ordering! I typically where a Size 2 and had to wear a Size 4. I was very happy with this rental and would rent it again.

The fit was great! I didn't even order the backup size bc it wasn't available. I was so worried but it was perfect! Lots of compliments and I loved the pockets! The skirt was really full and there wasn't any give in the waist. I had already read that so it wasn't a shock.

Love!

I lived this dress. It was comfortable, slimming, and dressy without being too dressy. The top runs small, so I had to wear the larger size because my chest wouldn't fit in the smaller size, so if you have a chest, size up.

Pictures don't do the color justice. Love.

Pictures make this dress appear kind of dull and gray tone. It is not. I took a close up shot to try to better show the colors. Very rich color. Royal blue, navy, black. With beautiful gold. I loved this dress. The zipper is sturdy (yeah!!). The waist is narrow. I got myself into the 38 - the 40 would be too roomy on top. Pockets. Very full skirt which is fun. I did wear a strapless bra bc of the boat neck style.

Waist was small

I am shaped straight up and down so this was very tight in my waist but loose up top in the straps. This luxurious fabric doesn't have any stretch or give. I think the waist would fit better in the size 42, but I think those straps would be way too loose on me. I love this dress but because of the fit, I didn't end up wearing this one.

Fabulous for Florence

The dress fit me well, I received many compliments! It is a structured dress, it doesn't have much breathing room so if you are between sizes I would order up but the 38 was perfect for me, I normally wear a zero. So tempted to buy!

Perfect party dress

I loved this dress! It was very cute in person and fancy enough for a "formal" wedding. The waist is quite tight and has no give, and the top isn't ideal for big busts. Those two things made for a night of somewhat shallow breathing, especially after dinner, but it was fine. I didn't need a bra, either. The skirt portion is fun and flirty. It was nice for a summer wedding in Chicago, and I think the dress would work in the winter too because the colors are deep jewel tones and the fabric is on the heavy side. A great find!

Gorgeous dress! Worth the tight waistband!

This dress is absolutely gorgeous! I rented it for a Fall wedding and it has just the right amount of coverage and weight to it for the slightly chillier weather. The colors are perfection and I loved the gold threading and pops of blue throughout. The hi-low hem was a lot of fun and the skirt had a nice fullness to it. The pockets were a nice plus and I was able to carry my phone around all night without any worry of it falling out. As others have mentioned though, there is little to no stretch in the waistband. Although the 46 had slightly more give, the top portion was simply too big and falling off my shoulders. I ended up wearing the 44 and by the end of the night, it must of loosened slightly or I got used to it, because it didn't bother me too much. I was able to sit, eat, and dance without really focusing on it. Overall, I really loved this dress. Worth the splurge in rental price! Definitely one of my favorites!

The dress was perfect. I got so many complements.

As everyone else mentioned, the dress is extremely tight in the torso. I would recommend ordering your normal size and a size up. The colors were beautiful and the swing of the skirt was perfect.

Old school glam - and it has POCKETS!

This gown is gorgeous in person! The colors are vibrant and the silhouette is amazing. The skirt had just the right amount of oomf and the pattern makes your waist seem tiny. It was beautiful, I felt beautiful, I got compliments all night of how I looked like old Hollywood glam! Plus it has POCKETS! DEEP POCKETS. I could carry my iPhone 7plus (which is relatively large) lipstick, mascara, and other random items in my pockets and not worry about them coming out. My favorite dress from RTR so far.

Stunning dress for the holidays!

I loved this dress so much, and received many compliments! The thick material and pockets were lovely. This dress was big in the chest for me and tight at the waist, so I wore a bombshell bra and didn't over eat. Worked perfectly!!

I needed 1 size bigger but was able to squeeze myself into this dress. I just avoided bread. The dress felt great and has amazing details that pictures don't really capture. I am considering keeping this!

Rented this as backup dress for my work's holiday party

This was my backup dress, and it was very large on me so I can't comment on the fit. The dress itself is gorgeous. The material is thick but soft. It would be good for someone who is very large busted.

Lovely dress and fabric

RTR stated that a 44 is a 6 - when you look elsewhere online a more common size translation is 42 is a 6. In any case, I am between a 4 and a 6 and the 44 was too large all over, but particularly through the shoulders and chest. As it was part of an Unlimited order and not for a specific event, that wasn't too much of a problem. The dress itself is lovely, a very thick luxurious fabric. I will consider renting a smaller size for holiday parties.

Loved this dress!

I love the fit and flare of this dress. I felt beautiful wearing it! It runs large on top and I carry my weight in my legs so I would have fit better in the next size down if had been available. But I was still very happy with this dress.

Glamourous and pockets!

A previous reviewer was right-- I think that RTR has inaccurately converted the Italian/American sizing. I used the standard Italian/American sizing conversion (NOT the RTR conversion), got my regular size in this cut of dress, and it fit great. The dress was a tight squeeze up top-- I had to go braless-- but once the zipper was up, it looked like it had been tailored for me. It makes your waist look TINY from the side and front. Lots of compliments from strangers and hubby!

I did not get to wear it.

I got this in an unlimited shipment, but specifically for wedding. Absolutely love it, great colors, but it was way to big on top. I plan on returning it and try getting a smaller size, if they have it and can ship in time.
