Beautiful embroidered party dress

Beautiful dress even though I ended up wearing a LBD. Embroidery was so pretty and festive. The bust had a built in bra and fit true to size. I'm a 36B and it was snug enough on top. Great dress for dancing!

Beautiful dress!

Pictures really don't do this picture justice- it's beautiful in person. Great for a fall/winter wedding. I'm usually between a 2 and 4- I went with the 2 for this one because I wanted it a little tighter so it wouldn't be falling down all night since it's strapless. Runs true to size.

Gorgeous dress!

This dress is stunning! The colors are gorgeous and movement of the fabric is beautiful. I usually wear a 4 or a 6 and I wore the 4 but I might have even been able to do the 2. It was a little big in the bust but all I needed was a padded bra. I wore it to a black tie gala and even though it is cocktail length, it fit right in.

Gorgeous dress but too big for me

This dress is gorgeous. The colors, slight shimmer in the gold thread, rich purple, and the shape of the dress was beautiful as well. It just didn't work for me. The chest was too big and the waist a tad big too. I had ordered a size 0 and so there was no smaller option to try. The length though was great, which is difficult to find with this style of dress when you are a taller girl.

One of my favorites!

I've really learned to love this designer, thanks to RTR. It was the perfect dress for the opening night of a cirque du soleil performance in LA.

Fun dress

Not too dressy. Great for a party that doesn't have a clear dress code but you don't want to be underdressed. I thought the dressy was a little big up top. I tend to wear a 6 or 8. This dress was a 6 and I was a bit nervous about it slipping down. Built in bra really helped. Got lots of compliments. Would rent this dress again.

I got this dress to wear to the Nutcracker, the ballet, and unfortunately the bust were too large. I would recommend going down a size. The material is gorgeous in person!

So many compliments!

I loved the texture and look of this dress! I got so many compliments for it and I felt so fancy. The only thing I didn't like was that the bust felt too big and constantly needed to be readjusted. As a 34 D that doesn't happen much for me, but I don't think I could've gone a size smaller. Also the dress is longish, so smaller girls keep that in mind.

So many compliments. Amazing embroidery

This dress was so comfortable. The built in bra and mechanics of the dress made sure it stayed in place all night. The fabric is stunning, it's a deep purple base but can pass for black as well. The hemline falls just to the knee and the waist hits low, so it works for someone like me with a long torso.

Glamorous without being predictable

I loved this dress and was sad to send it back! At first it seemed a little "busy" but once I put the shoes, jewelry and makeup on it all came together. The embroidery is stunning! It was a little big and I am glad I got a size down for the backup dress because that is what I wore. I am a 34B and needed the smaller size to make sure the dress stayed up. But the good news was I didn't need a bra with it. You are very well supported because of how it hooks in the back. Definitely get someone to help you put it on though. I received so many compliments at the New Year's Eve party I went to for looking classy and elegant and unique in a room of LBDs and short sparkly numbers....

Opera dress

Wore this to the opera in Sydney. High quality dress. I sized up a tad and I'm glad I did. Perfect fit. Snug in the bust.

Black Tie Ball

I found this dress to run large- especially around the chest. I am a 34D and somehow this dress made me look flat chested. The dress had more wear than I am used to - loose threads and pulls - but the Art Deco pattern and colors were beautiful

Comfort and style

When I saw this dress it caught my eye and lived up to the expectations. I wore it to our school Gala. The purple was very subtle and gorgeous. Strapless dresses are usually hard for me to wear because I have a large rib cage and small top and hips. Even so, it was still a little large but the built in corset is great. I would like to wear this dress again!

A strapless dress I can wear!

I haven't been able to wear a strapless dress in 15 years, for the simple reason that I am busty and have always worried about having to pull up a dress. This dress was perfect. The built in structure worked great for me. In addition to being actually wearable, the dress is GORGEOUS. Will rent again without hesitation.

Beautiful Details

This was a perfect fit for me, both in size and style. The embroidery is STUNNING, the fit is super-flattering, and the cut makes it stay in place all night with none of that awkward tugging. The print made it stand out, but the subdued colors kept it classy. A definite win.

This was a great dress! Lots of fun dancing and beautiful embroidery. I ended up going up a size to a 12 as fit was slightly better on top. As large bust this dress worked great

Perfect glitz

Heavy dress but fit perfectly. I usually stay away from strapless b/c have to keep adjusting/pulling up. Not with this dress. Stunning embroidery and the colors popped perfectly. Challenge to accessorize so it doesn't compete.

Beautiful dress!

I really loved this dress visually. The purple is subtle but noticeable and overall the color and style were beautiful. The dress has a built in bra which is interesting, but nearly impossible to hook yourself sonprepare to have help if you use it. I opted not to fasten it, and instead wore a strapless bra. I took one star away because I have a small chest and found the dress a bit loose around the top, even though the waist fit perfectly. If I had a bigger bra size I think it would have fit better. I won't order this again but I did receive several compliments! I wore this with Art Deco style jewelry from RTR and it really pulled the whole look together.

Perfect evening wedding dress!

This a great dress if you want to highlight your upper body's and cover the lower. Don't have to worry about sucking it in all night! Fit true to size, built-in bra, felt very pretty in it. Note that it has a purple undertone to the embroidery. Also be aware that there were a few snags in the threading around the bust. Not a big deal though. Overall a well-made, fun dress for my post-baby belly.

Beautiful dress but could not wear it

Dress was very beautiful but the hook did not reach. I rented 4 which usually fits me fine but the chest area must've been very snug for a good reason and my boobs may be still a little bigger than my usual 34C post baby....

Too full in the skirt for me

This fit nicely but I'm petite and I felt like the dress was too full for me. Didn't wear. FWIT the built in bra seemed very supportive.

Loved wearing this dress. I wore to my brother's rehearsal dinner. It fit perfectly on my hourglass shape. I loved the sheen and metallic thread on the dress. Sadly I didn't get any photos! Felt great in it and would rent again.

The design on the fabric was so beautiful and the fabric itself flowed nicely. Pretty easy to wear. It has a built in bra too. I wore to a bachelorette and a rehearsal dinner. I was maybe a little over dressed to both but still got tons of compliments!

Gatsby party

The dress fit fine, maybe ran a touch large but not too bad. Fabric felt high quality. I ended up using my backup dress though, because this didn't feel "roaring twenties" enough. Biggest con is that it smelled horribly!! It smelled like cigarette smoke.

Perfect for a fall wedding!

Dress fit perfectly and was fun to dance in. Has a built-in corset bra with back closure, but I still wore a strapless bra as well, for additional support. Fabric was heavier than most other dresses, so it was perfect for cooler temperatures.

Great dancing dress, beautiful fabric

First, this fabric is luxurious with the most stunning and intricate designs. Second, it's a very forgiving style and easy to dance and move in. The dress was a bit larger than expected, but I felt comfortable all night. Would definitely recommend for a formal wedding or event!

Gorgeous dress

This was a really special dress that was surprisingly comfortable. I had to go a size bigger than usual due to my large bust. I was probably in between sizes - I had to wear a strapless bra to hold up the dress.

Gorgeous and classy dress! So many compliments!

I loved this dress. The details and color are spectacular. I wore it for my parents' 50th wedding anniversary party, and the gold and purple embroidery was the perfect accent. The length was classy and easy to move around in. I didn't want to atop wearing it! I wear a 6 or 8, but only ordered the 8, which fit slightly big on me. I think it does run true to size. Would definitely rent again.

Unique Dress with Gorgeous Detail

When I first ordered this dress, I was concerned that it would be too cutesy or prom-like for my style (and age). I was dead wrong. This dress is absolutely gorgeous. I wore it to my company Christmas party and received so many compliments. I highly recommend this dress.

Fun party dress with just the right amount of sparkle

Fit true to size but recommend a strapless bra if you're a B cup or smaller
