Elegance, shimmer, gold. Beautiful.
It is beautiful beautiful beautiful. I absolutely loved wearing this and if I had the money to buy it from David Meister, I absolutely would. While this dress is simple, it stands out because of its elegance and shimmer. It is a taupe-gold, with a silver overlay woven into the lace. It fit me perfectly, and true to size. Take note, though, that it is shorter than most dresses are... It was fine on me since I am 5'3, but if you're any taller than that, go for the longer length for sure! Seriously, rent this dress! It's noticeable without being flashy, and such a step above typical prom/formal dresses. Thank you RTR <3

hey! I'm 5'4 and plan to wear 3-4 inch heels! Should I get the long instead?
DinaJune 6, 2014
I'd say yes! I think mine were 2 inches and it hit perfectly on the ground. Better to air on the long side than have it be too short with your heels. :)

Wore this dress to prom and felt beautiful all night
It was a great fit, might be a little long if you arent wearing 3 in+ heels. Overall an amazing dress.

You look absolutely beautiful in this dress! I'm renting this for my prom too. Do you have a pic of you facing the camera and not angled by any chance?

The dress fit beautifully and was a hit amongst other event go-ers
It was a little long but with very high heels, it skimmed the ground. If I ordered again, I would have gotten the 2R instead of the Long.

Loved it and received compliments all night!
I rented this dress for a black tie wedding and loved it. It definitely ran small - I wore the larger size - but it was SUPER comfortable and something different than what I normally wear. The only drawback was that sometimes my heel would get caught in the bottom of the dress while I was dancing. I wore Spanx because I like to smooth my middle section but you could get away without them. I wore the 10L and the length was perfect with three inch heels. The material is light and I felt like I was dressed up perfectly for the event. I'm really glad I went a bit out of the box and went for it - loved it!

This dress was comfortable and modest while still beautiful!
I usually wear a 4, so I got both a 2 and a 4 and the 2 fit perfectly; it was even a long without heels. So I'd size down for sure! I loved this dress, and I had another great RTR experience!

It's difficult to dislike such a comfortable dress but between the time i've worn a gown and when i received a dress I lost some weight so it was a little loose on me, if you're wearing heels this dress in an L is perfect. Another issue i had was how match the dress was to my complexion. Unfortunately this dress shows up in the gold color category when in fact the tensile is silver which wouldn't match my accessories. I'm adding an extra star because of the WONDERFUL customer service and speed of response. The customer service reps are polite, helpful and knowledgable about sizing as well as all the gowns. I'm waiting on the delivery on my replacement gown and I will post more about that once they arrive. My first experience...so far so good! Fingers crossed my dress replacement is here tomorrow morning.

Dress was okay.
Pretty dress but very conservative and boring. Would be good for a religious function but otherwise it's very blah. The shape was nice and the lace was pretty. I am 5'7 130 pounds and the 4l was too big, the 2 would have fit well. The length was fine though. I didn't wear it to the black tie wedding, went with something a bit more young and fun.

I have never been so comfortable at a formal event!. I felt very elegant and was complimented~Do it!
The size 8 is a true 8. I am 5ft 6 and chose the 8R so that I could wear flats. The option to order two sizes for the price of one is amazing! Make sure by adding the extra size or length....it's free! The dress packed easily and did not wrinkle! I was very happy with my choice and would recommend it~

The Lace Material Was Beautiful and Flawless!
I rented this dress for prom! As a first-time RTR user, I was afraid of something going wrong! Luckily, nothing did! I primarily ordered the size 6R and 4R but eventually switched the sizes while shopping for my prom shoes in fear of my dress being to short for my heels. Great choice! This dress runs small (as in height) so its better to go with the longer length when it comes to sizes 6 and 4. That night, I wore 4.25 inch strappy heels (two straps at the ankle and two over the toes). I also accessorized with a boxy rectangular clutch. My dress also came two days in advance! When I tried it on, I realized that the 6L fit much better than the 4L but the latter fit better with my dress and was about 1/2 inch longer. IT mattered in the end because having more length gave the dress and the overall look so much more elegance. Regardless, I had a wonderful night! I received a number of compliments about my dress and my whole outfit in general. It was splendid night! Couldn't have done it without this dress (and RTR, of course)!

I absolutely loved this dress. It was perfect. No hassle, no worrying. Lots of compliments
I went to an Arabic wedding where your chest/back/legs etc need to be covered. Usually I buy a dress and then have it tailored to cover it all up but this dress was perfect. Didn't need to do anything. It was a little loose on my waist but I usually have that problem since my chest and butt are large and my waist is small. It was comfortable, elegant yet simple. I would definitely rent again.

My wedding Dress
The fit was perfect. I did wear a tummy smoother under just keep the dress from clinging to my belly button. It was comfortable and beautiful. I also rented the belt just to make the look a little more special.

Comfortable & appropriate
I felt really comfortable wearing this dress all night. Since it was quite cold in the mountains for an outdoor wedding, the sleeves and length made it much warmer. The top part of this dress is translucent, so it makes it much prettier in person. I normally wear a 2, but the 0 worked and fit snug and was flattering.

So Comfortable
This dress was so comfortable! I was 15 weeks pregnant when I ordered the dress and I was going to be 17 weeks while wearing it. I am usually a 4L but I needed to size up for the tummy area. Had I not been pregnant and just got my normal size it would have been perfect too. I am also LDS and this was a modest dress that was still classy and fashionable. I was also able to wear a shade that looked as it was part of the actual dress.

Everyone told me how classy I looked in this dress! One of the best compliments to receive!!
This dress fit perfectly. I had ordered a size four and six, the six just to be safe. The neckline was perfect, coming just to my collarbone. The beading on the dress was just as beautiful in person as it was online. The dress wasn't tight at all, it was comfortable for me to dance in at prom all night! The only slightly bad things was that it was a little long for me being 5'3", I had to hold it up while I was dancing, so I wish there was a "short" option. Overall I am beyond happy with this dress!

The dress fit great BUT the hem was so raggedy
The dress is gorgeous, my husband loved it. But I didn't wear it because the hem was so raggedy and shorter than I had hoped. At barely under 6 foot the hem was a good few inches off the floor barefoot (please excuse my barefoot photo) and sadly the bottom layer was noticeably longer than the delicate top layer. Other than the length the dress fits exceedingly well and would be very comfortable to wear for an event.

im 135, 5'1 and 2 R fit PERFECTLY.. Like a glove and i have a little tummy as well that hid perfectly fine. I didnt get to wear it because the dress was tooo damaged to wear but the length was so perfect. I couldnt believe it. and it was floor length with no shoes on. So clearly i couldnt wear 4 inch wears probably 2-3 at most. (and i am not a skinny girl either.. avg) chest is 36b i didnt wear a bra because there is cups already in here

This dress is gorgeous. I wore it to a Gatsby-themed black tie gala and felt gorgeous in it!
The fit was fantastic! It hugged my curves, but was still loose enough to move without difficulty. And the length was really great too. I was able to wear flats and have the effect that the dress was just skimming the ground (which I think is the intended effect). My one complaint, which I noticed other people had too, is that the lining is too long for this dress. Fortunately though, this is an easy fix with a little fashion tape along the hemline.

Beautiful shimmering lace!!
This was my second choice as a wedding dress and I actually liked the fabric better on this one but the style was a little plainer than I wanted. It has a small "gathering" on the right side that you really can't see in the model picture. It was so subtle I thought it was a defect at first then realized it was made like that. But it didn't do anything for the dress once it was on me. All in all a great dress but not the greatest fit for this curvy girl.

RTR let me swap the dress I ordered for this and it worked out perfectly!
This was my first time renting from RTR and I had actually ordered a different dress, but when the ordered dress was too small, they let me come in to their Flatiron store and pick a dress to swap it with. This dress was perfect and very flattering. I am 5'3" and usually a size 4, and the 6R fit great - even the length was fine with a pair of 3" heels.

I work this dress for my wedding. The picture on the website doesnt do it justice! It was perfect!
It fit true to size for me. The 6R and the 8R both fit, but the 8 gave me a little more room when I sat down and it was a little more forgiving around the tummy area. The length worked perfect as well, i'm 5'6 and i wore 4" heels and it hit just right!

So many women came up to me and told me how amazing I looked. The dress looked gorgeous on.
I wore this gorgeous dress to a wedding, it was just perfect. So many women loved my dress .. Of course including my husband. I was expecting the fit would not be true to size given some reviews, so I ordered the size 2R, even though I usually wear a 0. I did order a size 0 but for some reason it wasn't shipped at all. I need to talk to them about that. The dress was loose from the waist. I think the size 0 would have fit perfect. The height was perfect for my height and I wore 3 1/2 inch heels. The dress looked spectacular overall. It's so light weight, easy to dance with. I felt Absolutely lovely in this dress.

First time using RTR and it was great! Received 2 sizes just in case, and the original size fit perfectly! Received many compliments throughout the night and felt glamorous. Was so happy to see a fully labeled and paid for bag to return it in - so easy. Well thought out service and will definitely be using it again!

Sparkly & Classy
I wore this dress to a charity ball. It was stunning! I love that it was sparkly, yet also conservative (necessary for this event) and classy. TALL LADIES: make sure to order the L (long) size! I am 5'10 and still had to wear flats with the L -- the R (regular) size would have been way too short.

I originally ordered this dress for my daughters Baptsim.
This dress is beautiful but more for an athletic build. It's very form fitting and runs small. I would order a size up and if you are 5'6" or 5'7" order a long. This was my mistake and I had to call to have them send me out a new dress in a long. Thank goodness all worked out and was able to wear another dress in time for my event.

I wore this dress for prom. Overall, it was a great dress, except for the length.
The dress fit perfectly and was true to size. My only issue was that the lining under the dress was longer than the actual dress, so I had to pin it with a few safety pins so that it wasn't visible. Also, the dress was shorter than I expected. It barely touched the floor when I didn't wear any heels, so it looked a bit awkward with heels on. I would definitely recommend getting a size long over regular.

Great fit, felt very glamorous. the lining did show a little but I pinned the hem up a little. Comfortable and light to dance in. Since I got the long length I wore 3.5" heel.

Amazing dress, perfect for our engagement photos!
The overall fit was great, I got a 2L and I'm 5'6" and was wearing 3-4" heels. However the lining was longer in the front of the dress than the lace overlay, so we just pinned it up. I couldn't be happier with the way our engagement photos turned out by Michelle Scott Photography. Even the designer David Meister thought the dress was stunning, as he posted one of our pics on his Instagram account!! :)

I loved wearing such a beautiful dress that I couldn't otherwise afford.
This dress is beautiful and was extremely comfortable for me. I am 5'0 but with 4" heels the dress was just a tiny bit too long. I would definitely recommend wearing (I rented) some jewelry to help it pop even more - mine was simpler but worked out wonderfully.
