RTR Team Review
This dress is a really unique cut and fabric, but the skirt was scratchy so I did not wear. Off-the-shoulder neckline means wear a strapless bra. Fitted in the waist and flared skirt means good for hourglass and pear shapes. I am broad-shouldered and this dress fit me fine up top. Really the only drawback to this fabulous style is the scratchy skirt which was surprisingly painful.

Great dress
I would say the 8r fits like a 2. Also, make sure you have help getting dressed... The dress wraps and zips in the back so it's almost impossible to get on alone :)

A unique twist on the LBD.
I wore this dress to a charity fashion show. It is artsy and edgy and was perfect for the occasion. The bottom of the dress can be a little scratchy, but it was fine to wear for a few hours. True to size. I am normally a size 6 and I wore the 10R. It is stretchy so has some give.

Stunning and flattering dress
Pros: Very comfortable dress and very flattering. Did not have to wear a bra with it- 34b. Received compliments all night long and there was definitely no one wearing a similar dress. Photographs very well. Cons: As others have mentioned part of the dress wraps around and fastens into a snap but it does not hold well. A safety pin is absolutely necessary otherwise your back half will be exposed. Thankfully I was prepared after reading the reviews and deciding to give it a try and it stayed in place all night just fine. The skirt part of the dress is a little stiff which some may find uncomfortable when sitting. I forgot about it after a couple of minutes. Overall, I would definitely rent this dress again. I felt so pretty and this goes beyond your basic LBD.

Loved having such a fashionable dress at my company event.
I wore the bigger size I chose, 14 R, which is equivalent to a 12 US. I believe I could have worn the smaller 12R (10 US) size, but I would have needed assistance getting it zipped. As it is, I had to turn it around and start the zipper, and then twist it back in place to get it zipped up all the way. What has been said in other reviews is true. The snap on the skirt does not hold at all, but I was able to use the eye hook deal and it held all night without any assistance. I did not wear a bra with it and was comfortable all night. It's also very forgiving, in that I did not use any Spanx or other type of undergarment and felt like there were no pronounced bumps or bulges. I would definitely rent this dress again. It was beautiful!

Super artsy and cool!
I would rent this dress again but maybe in a smaller size. The top was a bit big on me thought I am a 32D with a smaller back measurement. The fabric was great, thick and well constructed. Very cool, interesting, good with nylons or bare legs. LOVED it!

Retro cut with modern flare
This dress was awesome! I loved the different fabrics and details. On my short frame it's length looked sophisticated but it's style made it a edgy. There was a little bunching in the torso so if your short with an exceptionally short torso this will probably not work. I loved the silhouette it created. The fabric had give to it so comfort was not a problem. I wore a strapless bra with it no problem. My only complaint is that where the bottom net material met the fabric the edges of the netting were poking through and they rubbed my legs as I walked. At first this was only irritating but as the night went on it literally scratched me raw and hurt like I was 2hrs into a tattoo season I have the broken capillaries to prove it.

Customer service!!
This dress runs incredibly small. I am a 6, the 8 couldn't be even zipped up. The fabric is a scuba material and seems it would lay well if the waistline fit. Also, the hemline where the sheer meets the thick fabric is very itchy and uncomfortable. I was unable to wear this dress and rtr set me up with an overnight replacement. Fabulous customer service!

Stunning
This dress, thanks to other reviewers fit perfectly! I was able to navigate which size I would need, which was perfect! Others have said you need to pin the skirt since it pops open. It appears they have added a clasp so this does not happen at all. The dress has a lot of give which is nice and is definitely made for larger chests! It was easy to dance in and I didn't have to fuss with it at all. I got so many compliments since it was such a standout dress!! Would definitely wear again!!

Very chic
Due to my original size not being returned on time, I ended up with only my alternate size and was a bit worried it would be too small. It was tight but I did manage to fit into it. The snap button that holds the skirt wrapped in place was pretty flimsy but I guess the fitted waist tended to keep it in place. I'm not sure if it would've worked had I worn a larger size. I'm pretty short so the angled piece of the skirt was just barely off the floor. I wore this to my friend's wedding and got so many compliments! It really is a head turner due to the asymmetrical silhouette. I thought the skirt might have to be straightened out after sitting down but it held its form no matter what I did. My only gripe would be that the seam where the skirt meets the transparent material is incredibly scratchy on your legs.

loved it! definitely the coolest dress at the gala.
The fit is flawless, sort of feels like scuba material. Thick and form-fitting and stretchy. The skirt is so cool and graphic -- it's really the small details about this dress that take it to the next level.

Show stopping dress
I wore this to a rehearsal dinner with 3 inch heels for my son's wedding in New York City. The dress is gorgeous and I received many complements-even people stopping me on the street to comment on how different this dress was. The seam where the dress meets the crinoline is scratchy especially while sitting. Runs true to size. It was a bit tricky to put on so an extra pair of hands is helpful. Overall, so happy I ordered this dress-would do it again!

Unique dress.
I rented this dress as a Miami wedding option. I liked the look of it. The fit was pretty good. The bottom sheer part is crinoline, which unfortunately pokes through the binding at the seam. This makes it very scratchy on your thighs. I opted with another dress.

Runs small, but LOVE
I am 5'5", 165lbs, and usually wear 10-12 in dresses. This dress runs very small and the 14 fit me perfectly. I ordered the 12 and 14. The 14 ended up being the only one that arrived. Luckily it fit perfectly!!! The dress was more amazing in person than in pictures. Where the mesh meets the satin material at the mid thigh, it's really rough. Towards the end of the night, I had a mild "rug burn" from the rubbing. Overall, the dress was amazing and easy to dance/move around in. I would absolutely recommend to others and would wear again.

Gorgeous Dress
I felt gorgeous in the dress got so many compliments. It fit well and was easy to have fun in. However I do have to say the dress I received the stitching was coming apart from the inside and it was horsehair like and was poking me all over my thighs. I ended up putting some tape around the seams definitely helped. I spoke to customer service of what happened and they will address the issue once they get the dress back. Overall I still loved the dress highly recommend.

Received lots of compliments. 10+ hrs running around in this so forgive my disheveled look
Was a bit large in the bust for me, but a push-up bra helped. Definitely needed a safety pin to secure the snap on the skirt. This was easy to hide and forget about though. The seam on the leg between the scuba suit material and sheer material was really annoying and left a rash on my leg - I recommend taping the seam down or wearing tights to avoid that annoyance. My skin might just be sensitive, but again after wearing the dress for multiple hours that started to be quite the pester.

Incredibly flattering and unique!
My original New Year's Eve dress got held up in delivery and this dress totally made up for it! RTR refunded my order and told me to go to the store and pick out any dress free of charge for the inconvenience. Found this one, it was too big but made with stretchy material so you never would have known. It had heavy material and great structure. Made me look amazing and I got so many compliments! I wouldn't recommend this gown for an event that you sit for since the skirt has seams that do rub harshly on your legs. Tights would also get caught on the seam and run. But if you are up and about, then this dress is great! I stood mostly at my event and I loved this dress! Would get it again for sure!

Really Unique Shape
This dress was so unique but I felt slightly uncomfortable the whole time. The mid-section is very unforgiving and I didn't have the right undergarments with me at the wedding I attended. Plan out what you'll wear underneath and you should be fine. I received a LOT of compliments. This dress should definitely be worn with heels. I wore with flats and I stepped on the back panel quite a few times.

Modern and Chic
I wish I could say I got to wear this dress to my event, but unfortunately, the dress never arrived until 2 days after it was supposed to arrive. When it did arrive, I tried it on and really loved it. Yes, it is only hooked on by a tiny clip, but because of the laws of physics, I did not worry about it coming apart. I ended up wearing it for a night out with some work friends and it stayed put the whole time. It does get a little complicated trying to wrap the dress around, but the fit was amazing and it was a show stopper. The only complaint is that the dress does get scratchy.

Dress was amazing! Everyone complimented me on it! I'm quite tall so it really showed some leg.
It probably ran true to size, but I'm sort of small busted, so it was a little too big. I just used a little assist to fix it!

I loved the dress! it was so different and fun, rented it for NYE
The only reason I give this dress 4 out of 5 stars is because I wore this for a NYE party where we had dinner and when I sat down for dinner the pull between the see through part and the actual dress was rubbing on the back of my legs to the point I got so uncomfortable I put a napkin under my legs inside the dress. Besides that I loved it and it looked amazing, I got a lot of compliments

Not your everyday LBD
Beautiful, sculptural dress. Perfect fit, even on petite frames. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the seam where the opaque fabric meets the sheer was really scratchy. By the end of the night I had a red welt where the seam rubbed over and over against my leg.

The dress is beautiful, however it needs to have a hook attached to the top of the zipper in the back. The zipper kept sliding down, and friends on the dance floor had to keep zipping it up to the top! It's a gorgeous dress, and many compliments!~

Habitat for Humanity fundraising gala. Black tie event for a good cause.
This dress is a show stopper! I got so many head turns, compliments, and photos taken. Best dressed of the night, no question. It fit perfectly, true to size. I'm usually a petit but didn't need it for this dress. Comfortable, I could move in it, but sexy as hell. Didn't need a bra. Wore 4 inch heels.

This is dress is a stunner. Prepare to receive compliments all night long.
The 8R did not end up being available, so I got only the 10R to try (and a few backup dresses of different styles). It fit well enough that I decided to wear it, and I regret nothing, because it looked great, and it's such a special and unusual dress! The bodice was a bit roomy and the strap could have been about an inch shorter. Maybe the 8R would have been better, but it's also possible that it's a petite-person problem that would not be totally fixed by a smaller size. I used fashion tape to make sure it wouldn't slip down too far in front, and I pinned the strap a bit, and it looked pretty darn good. I do wish that there was a hook at the top of the zipper; it unzipped itself about an inch or so on a few occasions! Again, maybe I needed the smaller size, but would the bodice being more snug have fixed this problem? I don't know. One more note: I'm not sure why the fit guidelines suggest a nu-bra or no bra. A normal strapless bra worked fine for me. (The 10R was definitely too roomy for no bra!) So, the fit was not 100% perfect, but it was worth it because it is such a special garment. I wore it to a black tie wedding at an art museum in San Francisco, and everyone kept commenting that I looked like a piece of art with this unique dress. It's a really fun choice for a formal event, and I love that.

Unique! Stands out at a black tie event and perfectly ties in both long and short dress attire!
So many compliments on this dress! True to size. I took the advice of other reviewers and put prophylactic safety pins on the back zipper and on the wrap skirt just in case. It was a comfortable dress the entire night. I needed to iron the mesh skirt before I wore it but it didn't wrinkle while being worn. The top of the dress holds you in well; it's a thick almost neoprene scuba suit like material. I was very pleased with everything about this dress!

I wear a size zero and a 32B and I had a very hard time filling out the chest. I think it runs very large in the chest area and is a bit longer than expected...wear very high heels!! Overall, it's a fantastic dress, many compliments from people I did not know that randomly approached me. Definite winner!

Definitely attention grabbing at a black and white party!
I normally don't choose black, but rented this for a black and white party. I got tons of compliments from people I didn't know. It was a great conversation starter! It was also very comfortable (stretchy material). The cons - the dress came with one snap to hold the skirt together, I had to go to the RTR store (luckily a few blocks away) to have them help me add a few safety pins. I would not have felt secure with the one snap. Also, there is no hook on the top of the zipper that holds the top together - so I had to remember to rezip myself because the zipper kept sliding down. Best to add a pin there too. Despite the above, the cut of the dress was FABULOUS! I will be renting David Koma again.

little black dress with big style
The dress fit slightly small, except for the length, which was a bit longer in the back than what i would have preferred. I could have pinned it up, but my boyfriend said i looked so great as it was, so didn't bother with it. Still, I had to wear 4 inch heels to make it look right. I was afraid of the skirt unhooking so i used a safety pin for good measure. The waist was very tight, but when i tried on the 10, the chest and shoulders were too big. I wore this to a wedding where I was told the attire was "formal but not that formal." This was perfect, because the short dress illusion made it feel less formal, despite the formal black color. It was very easy to dance in too. I loved how different this dress was from everyone else's. The only thing to be weary of is the mesh part of the skirt. The stiff nature of the material makes it easy to be bent and creased. The end of my skirt was curling out. I made it less noticeable by rolling it inward before putting the dress on.

Unique and modern!
I wore this dress for a formal wedding on a lake at the end of August. It was the perfect in-between for a formal wedding in a more relaxed setting. In hindsight, I wish I had gone with the size 10R instead of the 8R. My one complaint is that the clasps that hook the bottom piece of the dress to the inside does not stay put at all. Luckily, I read the other reviews and brought safety pins. Other than that, a true winner!

Unique and Sophisticated
So, I normally wear a size 2 in dresses. The 8R fit snug except for the bust area, which was fine with a padded bra. I wore 4 inch heels so the edge of the dress did not brush the floor. I wore it all night without any wardrobe malfunctions. I only say this because you have to zip the back up like a crop top, wrap the skirt around your waist, hook a tiny clasp and button on the inner left side. Definitely check the sizes because it runs small. But overall, gorgeous and unique dress. I would definitely wear it again if given the opportunity.
