This was my second dress, and I wore the first but wished I had a second event to wear this to!
The fit was a little large, but the length was perfect. Sexy and classy.

Gorgeous dress. Sophisticated and feminine
Wore this dress for a formal work function. Extremely flattering and fit perfectly. Perfect for a stylish and sophisticated event where you don't want to make too much of a statement but want to make an impression.

ended up not wearing it because color not the best for my skin tone
True to size. Ordered both the 4 and the 6 and the 4 was the correct size. The color is deeper darker gold which is not the best shade for my skin tone. Fabric a bit wrinkly too. A very elegant, classy and comfortable dress. Would have liked it if not for the color.

This dress was perfect for a winter wedding and I loved the gold color.
The fabric of this dress is thicker than you might imagine so plan for that. Also, the 6 looked a little more snug around my curvy areas than I was comfortable with while attending a Catholic wedding mass so I wore the 8.

Dress was BEAUTIFUL! But, turned out to be a little too formal for the event
Very flattering material that provides enough support where it's needed (bra wasn't required). RTR made an oopsy and didn't send me my second option of size, which may have fit just a touch better. They were nice about it though, if memory serves they didn't charge me (since I rented two different dress options). I would absolutely rent the dress for a semi-formal or formal event. I really loved it.

Stand out dress.
I rented this for my law school prom- I loved that I could rent a dress instead of buying one that I'd probably never wear again!

Classic elegance.
This dress is beautiful. I was a bit surprised by the color, as it was a deeper and darker gold as opposed to more of a champagne, which I had expected from the RTR photo. The fabric is gorgeous and regal and offers a beautiful silhouette. It really doesn't need much dressing up at all! The size 6 seemed only slightly roomy, so I went with the 4, but for the most part it seems to fit true-to-size. Great to wear to an upscale city wedding!

Well made dress, but a bit bland.
Color was not a bright gold, so it already made my pale skin look paler. Ran a bit large as well, but a decent dress for a nice party or affair.

Very attractive dress.
This was the second dress I ordered - I ended up not wearing it but I would rent it again as a #1. It goes in my B+/A- group as a lovely dress. Fits well - it was a little large around the top, but not noticeably so - I could feel it but my friends couldn't see it. I have never rented an asymmetrical dress before so maybe they're all like that. It could be because I am small breasted, but I have wide shoulders which usually balances that out. Fit well and flattering everywhere else. Color note: it is a shade darker than the photo, which makes it look quite golden; it is not - it is a darker more muted gold, but still very pretty.

stunning dress
i absolutely love love love this dress! I really wish that it was on the shorter side because then I would have worn it! the material was great for covering up my uneven stomach and didn't show every detail as many dresses of this fabric tend to do. the one should look was fabulous! I just really wish it didn't hit me at the knee!

I LOVED this dress!
This dress was great. It highlighted by shape without sequeezing anything in. I loved how it felt and how it looked. I highly recommend a more dramatic make-up with it, but it was just a great evening all around, and I received a lot of compliment.s

shiny fabric complimenting my golden blond hair & wowing the Ex and his posh friends in Notting Hill
The feel and hue of the fabric is beautiful, but a bit difficult to care for - wrinkles and stains easily. Also, while very comfortable to wear, the backside was somewhat ill-fitting and bulging (and I have curves to normally fill that space !). But overall a truly stunning dress !

WAY too big
I ordered the smallest size and was still swallowed up by it. Beautiful color and design, but way, way too big Unfortunate. I was left scrambling for an outfit since my backup was a bust as well. :(

great dress. comfy fit.
loved this dressed!! i was disappointed that they discontinued the size 8, which i thought was my true size. i rented the 6 and the 10 and said a prayer :-) the six fit like a glove. i really appreciate the recommendations for jewelry and makeup. i wore MAC's ruby woo and felt like a 40's hollywood starlit! my husband took this picture because he really loved the dress. thanks RTR!

RTR Customer Service Can't be beat!
This dress was very pretty. The fabric was thick and flattering - almost like a compression fabric. It is very fitted so be prepared. The dress did show some wear - it seems to snag easily and was a little long on me so I decided not to wear it. Also, in person the fabric looked more a drab camel color than a bright gold.

It wasn't very flattering on me. You can see your bellybutton through the dress if you're not wearing anything under it.

Great dress for formal events
I got so many compliments on this dress! I wore to a wedding where my husband was the best man. It was flattering and a great color for me (I have auburn hair). It was a little bit big around the bust for me, and I would say the dress runs a little bit big overall, but not enough to make much of a difference in choosing a size. I would recommend this dress and will maybe try to rent it again!

Great fit, flattering
I rented this dress for a nonprofit Gala. This dress fits great, super comfortable, and very flattering. But it's a little boring. Needs fun jewelry to perk it up. It's a nice dress but if I had to do it all over, I would have picked a different dress.

The color of this dress is absolutely beautiful. It was very figure flattering and had just the right amount of sheen. I received many compliments. Fit was true to size. My only complaint was that it wrinkled pretty easily.

Classy and Flattering
I absolutely adored this dress. When I rented, only the 4 was available and my backup size, the 2, was not. Unfortunately, the reviewers are right, this dress absolutely runs large. I could have swung it and tried to wear it but I could grab a handful of fabric and pull it away from my body (and fold it over) on the side seam--so I didn't risk it. Since I didn't order a second look (b/c I loved this one so much) I had to try to snag something else ASAP, which was too bad. I will totally try this dress again for another occasion when I'm sure they'll have the smaller size available.

Glamazon!!
I adored this dress!! I am usually an 8 in pants...i have big hips and a relatively small waist....the 8 was unavailable so I got the 6 and the 10...the 6 fit like a glove :)....the dress has some stretch, and is also lined...it hit just above my knee so was appropriate for my age (42).... I would absolutely recommend!! (I did not find that this dress wrinkled at all btw...)

Beautiful dress, but too big!
The dress itself is beautiful! Even more pretty than the way it looks on the site. However, it did not work for my pear shape. It fit perfectly around the hips, but I'm very small up too (a small 34 B) and it was swimming in the bust area, so I ended up not wearing it. But it is a beautiful dress.

A couple of the nominees asked me, "What designer are you wearing?" :-)
Rented this for the 2nd Annual Buckey Awards for Excellence in the Arts. I was the "red carpet" reporter interviewing nominees as they arrived and winners as they left the stage. I got a ton of compliments on this dress and felt appropriately "award worthy!" I was a little wrinkled by the end of the night, but otherwise still looking good!

Great Dress
Dress was perfect for an evening wedding. However when the dress arrived there was a water stain on the left shoulder side and also the front near the hemline. The 2 fit perfectly but I had to wear the 4 bc the stains were noticeable. The four fit well, but not as nice as the 2. It's a perfect dress for a classy event and still be able to show some skin!!

the look on my fiancee's face
This dress is very classy - i rented it for dinner and also wanted to test-run it for a bridesmaid dress. I will be using this dress as the bridesmaid dress at my upcoming wedding. I am 5'5, 140 lbs, and the 6 fit perfectly....i suggest a strapless bra, and potentially spanx. Follow up - i chose this dress for my bridemaids for a summer winery wedding...the girls loved it, every dress fit perfectly, and the material was stretchy, forgiving, and complimented their figures (my friends have VERY different body types). They were able to wear the dresses comfortably for over 10 hours!

Great Fit - Figure flattering
This dress is better than expected as the material and fit is so glam! I think you can go down a size in most cases if you have smaller boobs and I think the gathering around the waist makes it look more figure flattering if its tighter. I wore this to a wedding in Brazil but could easily work for a Christmas party. Sad I don't own it, but thanks RTR for making this bomb!

This is me with my friend Amy who also ordered from RTR. We both loved our dresses!!
After reviewing the other comments, I ordered the 4 and added a size 2 as a back up since people said it ran large. The 4 fit me perfectly so I think it was true to size. I received lots of compliments on it all night. I think you can wear this for many types of events. It was very comfortable and I would definitely order it again! As a first time customer, I was so happy and can't wait to try another dress!!!

Elegant and glam!
Love this dress! The fabric has a subtle sheen that gives it just enough shine, and has some stretch to it so that it will definitely show off your curves. It's also a great length- not too short, so it's perfectly appropriate to wear to a wedding or an evening work-related event. Highly recommend!

This dress fit great and was perfect for the wedding I went to on NYE. It's a great length (I'm 5'10" so usually dresses run short on me - not this one!) and was very flattering.
