Super comfy and classy
I LOVED this dress. I was so comfortable and got compliments all day and night on it. The shape and details were flattering in all the right places. The detail was more sparkly and less like the leather (pleather) I imagined.

Perfect for a work holiday party.
I thought it was going to be more of a tailored cotton fabric, but it is actually more of a stretchy fabric. It was not tight, just a little clingy, but it is lined. The green stripes in the dress are sparkly green, which was appropriate for the holidays. I think it pictures very well and it was comfortable. Overall, I liked it. It fits true to size, I ordered one size smaller as well, but the smaller one, since I am tall, was too short and the proportions were off.

Did not love this dress, bottom is perfet but top runs small.
It's pretty and back is cute with the fishtail. It just cuts in near the arm holes and is a pretty deep v neck. If you have any chest at all go a size up.

Perfect dress for a wedding guest
I originally ordered a different dress...when it didn't fit, I panicked. RTR was AMAZING. They shipped me this dress and I got in the next morning, just in time for the wedding. It is such a beautiful rich deep green and looks perfect with a nude heel. I'm a full C, and the amount of cleavage was just right. My favorite part of this dress was how great it made my butt look!

Dress was a perfect fit
Loved it. I usually have a bit of a struggle with formal dresses because I am petite with a full bust and a bit of a belly. However, the cut of this dress is very flattering. It provided good support through the chest. I could wear it with a regular bra. Neckline was not too revealing. I felt that it showed off my curves but yet I looked work-appropriate. The trim drew the eye to the right places. It is a very dark green, almost black. Honestly, I loved it so much I am tempted to buy it. I'd definitely wear it again ... to a nice dinner, cocktail party, etc...

Perfect fit and super comfy!
Ordered a size 6 and 8 just in case. I'm 5'7 and normally wear between a 6 & 8 depending on the label. I am super curvey too so I was pleasantly surprised the 6 was a better fit.

Runs true to size
I wasn't wowed by dress. Though it is beautifully made and the fish tail in the back is cute, I found it to be a little plain. It does run true to size. This dress would be perfect for a work dinner or cocktail party.

The dress fit perfect and on top of that it was very comfortable!
I wore this dress to a wedding in Maryland. The green was a great choice- not your basic black. I got a ton of compliments and I felt great in the dress. I was able to wear a regular bra underneath and no need for spanx because overall the fabric is very flattering. I would suggest for anyone. The added detail on the front of the dress to the back is a shiny lizard like coloring. It is not as shiny as the online picture shows but a wonderful detail non the less.

Easy, comfortable, and classy
It was simple and fit well, especially for those with coca-cola shaped bodies. It made my hips look sexy without looking scandalous. However, the detailing below the bust line looked a little cheap and was not what I was expecting. It is just shimmery fabric, where I thought the picture looked more like a faux leather. The fit made up for the detailing bummer, though.

This dress is perfection on an hourglass figure. Lots of compliments.
I felt beautiful in this dress. The little bit of sparkle detail is lovely as is the swishy back.

The color of the dress is amazing! The material was nice and heavy.
I think that this dress was a little plain. Also, if you are large up top, I think this dress would be even more flattering. Very comfortable.

Meh
I ordered this to wear under a blazer at a conference (assuming then I could take it from day to night sans the jacket). I guess I didn't realize from looking at the other reviews and photos that it's a more flowy dress, not very structured. That still would have been doable, but the dress was too long (hit me under the knees, even with heels on) and most importantly, I just thought it was too frumpy. My overall feeling on it was just "eh" - so decided to wear something I already owned.

I didn't end up wearing this dress.
I order this dress as my backup and didn't end up wearing it. It was a bit too dark in dark lighting (black). The dress was more conservative than I would have liked. If your small chested, the neck line is fairly high for a v neck. It fit well and wasn't too tight.

Not bad for last minute
My two prior dresses before this one didn't work out. So this was a last minute thing. RTR were great with helping me get this dress last minute and overnighted in time for my event. Fit was a little big for me but I dealt with it considering what I had to deal with. Color was great and the back was cute. A little boring but it worked. Would rent again for a more casual event.

The dress was fairly conservative.
I rented this dress for a medical graduation event. I wanted something somewhat conservative and green, because the school colors are green and gold. I think the dress was perfect for the event. I was surprised by the dress. It is actually a very stretch jersey material. I thought the shinny part was going to look pleathery, but it was more sparkly in person and scrunchy looking. The dress was very comfortable to wear. I expected it to be more form fitting, so I opted for the size 2, as you can see it was loser than I wanted, but that ended up being a good thing because I was running around and eating and drinking a lot. If you want something conservative and comfortable, this is a great choice.

Is a big less formal than a cocktail dress I'd normally select as a wedding guest but I got tons of compliments and felt great in this dress. The flare in the back made dancing fun!

Not quite what I pictured
This dress isn't bad at all, just not special either. In person the color appears to be pretty much black (my least favorite color). Unless under really bright lighting the green doesn't show through. Also I was expecting the embossed detailing to be leather-like but its really just a shiny material. The cut is flattering and true to size, but for me there are just many dresses that are more special than this. One other thing to note - the neckline is lower cut than expected. I'm a 34G, so this may not be a problem for everyone that wears the dress. However I was a little uncomfortable with the view I was giving everyone at a co-worker's wedding.

Tried it on but did not wear it.
Had ordered a 10 but it was way to big should have gotten an 8 or even a 6. It is stretchy. Not as cute as it looked in the picture. Not cute enough for me to wear to a wedding. Just not my style.

Returned
The dress itself is beautiful, I loved how the sparkly detail continued in the back. It was classy and comfortable. However, the length was far too long on me, and made my legs look comically stumpy. I had to return it.

A Charming Dress
This dress is definitely meant for someone that is a little bit more busty... However, I did enjoy being able to wear my everyday bra and not have to worry about a strapless bra. I wish that the dress appeared more fancy. I felt as though it was missing that glamour feature.

Classic and elegant , with understated flair!
The dress is a beautiful color (particularly when photographed in natural light). The shimmery details were a nice yet understated touch, as was the slight fishtail in back. I wore it to an elegant wedding and it was perfect. I have an hourglass figure and it accentuated my curves tastefully. The dress will wrinkle and need to be steamed if you are traveling with it. I wore it with nude pumps and gold accessories.

Seeing two great people get married!
This was my first rental and I was apprehensive about choosing a dress online but the reviews were so helpful. I usually wear a size 6 and that was the perfect fit in this dress (I am 5'7" and weigh around 140lbs). The fabric was so comfortable and flowing and the detail just made it that much more special. I got lots of compliments and would highly recommend it!!

As soon as I put on this dress I felt amazing. It fit like a glove and was conservatively sexy.
I would suggest wearing Spanx underneath if you're a pear-shaped gal like me. It hit me just below the knee, which was perfect for me. I was a little loose in the shoulders, but I have narrow shoulders so most things are loose for me there. I got SO many compliments that night. This dress is legit magic and I would own it if I had $450 to spare.

Very classy
I was dumbfounded when the 14 was too big. I didn't expect this and did t get a smaller size and really wish I did. This is a very easy to wear dress. Very flattering and forgiving. Because it was too big I spent the day pulling it up so the bra didn't show but this would have been rectified with the right size. I will rent again.

Beautiful dress, but not made for petites...
The emerald green color of this dress is GORGEOUS & I loved the detail/design on the back. The fabric was comfortable and had some stretch to it. I usually wear a size 10 (petite if possible) & it fit true to size. Unfortunately, since I'm 5'4", the length of the shoulders was about an inch too long, so the V hung really low on me. I would have tried this dress on in the store & I would have bought it... but then had the sleeves altered. If only I was a bit taller it would have been perfect!

Great dress for an evening out!
I wore this on a date night with my husband. I'm a little thicker around the middle than I used to be, but this dress was VERY flattering. The cut easily allows for Spanx and a good, supportive bra. The detail in the back is very flattering as well. This was very sexy, without being overt. I would definitely wear this dress again.

All the compliments I received about the dress! Lots of room to dance, and still stunning!
This dress was gorgeous! I usually wear an 8, sometimes a 10, and the 10 fit me perfectly. The dark green color was beautiful, and the shape was really flattering; it gave a lovely hourglass shape, which I don't actually have! I got lots of compliments. Also looks great with gold jewelry.

Beautiful color, classy!
Loved the dark green color and detailing through the bust! Fits beautifully, but my only slight critique is that it was a bit more conservative than it looks on the model (little bit longer on me, granted I'm 5'3", and wasn't nearly as fitted in the waist as I would like). However, this also may have been a result of wearing the size 4. RTR didn't have the 2 available which may have been a better fit for me and given the more fitted look I was hoping for.

(Ordered For Mom) Didn't Fit but AWESOME customer service!
I ordered this dress for my mom. When it arrived, it didn't fit. She didn't realize she had to return it within 24 hours and was a day late because of that - she called them to explain, and they were wonderful. They explained that the policy is if it doesn't fit, return it in 24 hours and you get your full refund...they gave her the full refund anyway because it was an honest mistake - Great customer service!

I got lots of compliments and felt great! Could have gone a size down.
So according to my measurements and the details about the dress including the material, I should have ordered a 14 so that's what I got. I must say, the material was more forgiving than I expected and the dress fit a bit too big. I'm an hourglass and was looking for something form fitting. I was concerned about the hips being too snug but it fit just fine. The top however, was a bit loose and I felt myself adjusting it the whole time so that my bra didn't show. In all i would have benefited from a size down. RTR didn't have a smaller back up size available at the time so this was my only option. Also liked the convenience of picking it up at the flatiron store just blocks from my job.

I actually ordered this dress as a back up for for my brother's wedding but it ended up being the winner. It's simple and elegant, and the dark green is beautiful. I love the sparkly detail. It's form fitting but a stretchy material. I wore spanx underneath just to keep everything smooth. Would definitely rent again!

This was my back-up dress as the original was too short for me to wear. This dress was lovely and true to size, sadly I never got a photo in it.

I wore this to a Christmas Wedding and received many compliments! It was perfect for my event.
The dress was true to size and very comfortable. No special undergarments required but I do advise wearing Spanx. The material stretches but is also very fitted. I added a nice choker-style necklace and matching bracelet & earrings. Extremely appropriate for a holiday wedding or any event during Christmastime. The dark green is understated and very elegant. The back of the dress is exceptionally flattering too. I would highly recommend this dress!

The dress was perfect for an office party. I felt beautiful and stylish!
My boobs are usually the hardest part to fit on a dress because of their over-average size, but the dress accommodated them splendidly.
