it's a pretty dress but you have to be stick skinny. I felt like you could see every bump and ripple of my skin. didn't end up wearing it.

The material is like liquid gold! I wish I could have worn it!
This dress would have been perfect for the Black and Gold Gala I rented it for, but unfortunately the hole where the ribbon was supposed to go through was sewn shut. I tried so many ways to make it work and nothing looked quite right. I was so disappointed I couldn't wear this beautiful dress!

Gorgeous, eye-catching gown.
I wore this gown in 2R for a black-tie charity gala. The dress was exquisite and I received many compliments through the night. Strangers came up to me and asked to touch the dress because the sequins look so beautiful and fluid like. I am usually a size 0 and had ordered the 0 with 2 as the back-up size. However, on this particular order it appeared that somebody had made some amateur alterations to the 0 and I was unable to wear it. When I spoke to RTR about this problem they immediately offered me a 25% refund which I was satisfied with since I had been able to wear the 2 and it fit fine. As with any sequin dress, it did take some time to straighten out the sequins which arrived a bit of a mess but other than that, I loved the dress. My boyfriend was speechless and people were incredibly complimentary. Would rent again.

Definitely need some Fashion tape to hold it perfectly in place, but fantastic dress!
The dress looked beautiful, and I received a lot of complements on it. Had to buy some fashion tape to hold in up on my shoulders, and on the front, but it looked great! Suggest getting two sizes, runs a little large.

Sexy, slinky, knock out dress.
This dress is unlike what I usually wear and that is exactly why I decided to rent it. Time for something new! It runs large. I usually wear a 2 or 4 and the 0 fit great. I am small busted and short torsoed so I think that helped with it fitting. I was able to wear a bra. I wore a nude plunge bra and used a low back waist converter and it worked perfectly! I also employed the use of lots of double stick tape. The sequins are quality and stunning. I was surprised to see that not a one was missing from my dress. The ones near the hem were bent, but I expected that from a rental and it kind of gave the dress a cool 3D pattern at the bottom. I spent some time the night before turning them all into one direction and then gave up when I realized that they would flip with moving and sitting and I think that is part of the charm. I got a lot of compliments and felt like a million bucks. I was (as was my husband) so sad to return it this morning!

Hi Natalie (sorry for the previous messages), I'm having trouble tying the wrap dress. Is there a hole somewhere in the side where the other ribbon is supposed to go through? Thanks so much! Lauren

Glamorous gown with a forgiving, flattering shape for people bigger on bottom. I added a thick black ribbon belt to add extra shape around the waist and loved the look.

Gorgeous gown!
Gorgeous dress! I wish I could keep it! The matte gold is stunning in person. It definitely runs large... I would have preferred a smaller size, but a 4 was the only one available. The top was falling off when I first tried it on but I was able to use sticky tape and it was perfect- you couldn't even tell! Overall I love love loved this dress and would wear it again!

Pinned it in 2 places in the front and tied the back straps together with a black ribbon. This made it so comfortable.

This dress turns heads all night long! You'll feel like you're literally dripping in gold.
The dress fit true to size in terms of length; the wrap-around style makes it easy to adjust. I would either go braless or wear pasties. For shoes, I wore a 3" heel--just high enough to keep the dress from dragging. I highly, highly recommend this gown to anyone who wants to shine!

sequins were a mess, not too flattering
In theory and on the model, this dress is great. However, when I received it, the sequins were a mess-- I think this one needs to be retired from RTR. Also, it was not that flattering at the dress just hung on me and didn't do much for my body.

Golden Goddess
I ordered a 6 and got a 4 as my backup. I've never had the privilege of wearing a DVF gown so wasn't sure about the sizing. The 4 fit! (*excited*). It's a wrap dress which is easy to wear and virtually flattering on any figure in my opinion. I used fashion tape for the top to hold the 'ladies' in. I'm a 32DD so I was a bit self conscious but I decided to rock it and wear it with confidence. I'm about 5'7-8" and with 4 inch heels it barely grazed the floor at a perfect length. Also, customer service was awesome and the email reminders and the personal little touches in the packaging made a huge impact. I work in online retail as a marketer and attention to detail is much appreciated. RTR is the best ever!
SamanthaJanuary 17, 2013
We have the exact same body type so I'm so glad you posted this along with pictures!
AshleyJanuary 24, 2013
Thanks Samantha! I was hesitant at first cause I have a larger bust size but it fit quite nicely with some fashion tape.
angelaJuly 5, 2013
Hi, you look great! I'm busty as well; can you wear any type of special bra with this or no?
angelaJuly 5, 2013
Ha, nm. Just clicked a few photos in and read it is a no-go with a bra. Boo.
AshleyJuly 19, 2013
Angela, I didn't need to wear a bra. It kinda holds you in if you tie it tight enough and I added some fashion tape along the inner front sides to keep the ladies in place.
CandaceSeptember 9, 2013
Love this color - were you happy with the gold?
AshleyJanuary 23, 2014
@Candace Yes, it was a beautiful gold. All sequins, semi-heavy but it kept the true wrap from peeking open so it was good ;)

Super glamorous! All heads will turn. Be prepared to smile!
The matted gold is perfect for making a statement, wihtout being too loud. I am 5'3", this dress was long with 3 inch heels. So, wear tall ones or be prepared to hold your dress so you don't step on the train that is created by your lack of height. This dress is not the best choice for a busty woman, but I wanted to wear it so bad. I am 32DDD = 34DD and there was a lot of cleavage and sideboob showing. I ended up taping all sides of my breats to keep the dress from shifting. Also, the cut is low in the front, and you cannot wear any kind of bra, unless you can find tape on cups that LIFT and do not have a closure in the middle. Unfortuately, all the tape on bras I found had closures in the middle. Thankfully, the tape is so strong, I left the closure undone. With the tape on bra cups, and the 6-8 garment tape strips, I made it work. I would have loved a safety pin in the center, but without one, I just used more garment tape. Throughout the night I thought about spilling out, and being too revealing, but everyone told me I looked great and my friends reassured me I had nothing to worry about. After a few drinks and some dancing, I was able to let go and have fun! Super recommended for smaller chest, thin frame women. Take caution women with larger breasts!

You look amazing. Thanks for the detailed review; I had concerns about my 36DD bust. Will have to pass on this one.

Dress was like liquid gold!
I loved wearing this dress! I have gained a little weight recently and was expecting to wear the 6 but the 4 was good. Gorgeous fabric and great 70s feel. I had to use a lot of pins to hold it together though. Would probably be hard for someone with a larger chest.

Loved the dress although it didn't photograph very well! Most sequins were still in tact but there were a few that were missing. Great dress overall!

Received a lots of complements from both women and men. Very unique and royal looking.
Run bigger. It's a great matte gold color sequins. A little bigger under arms and low cut on a chest area. Dress over all is very heavy and hard to dance in .

Stunning & Gorgeous!! Perfect for a Black Tie Wedding!!
The dress was so pretty and very comfortable. I did have to use a ribbon to tie the straps together in the back to make it fit a little better but other than that the dress was beautiful. I wore 4 and 1/2 inch heels so the dress was the perfect length. Some of the sequins were reversed up but all i had to do was brush it the other way and the coloring went back to the way it should be. Definitely would recommend this dress for a wedding.

A dress that shines!
This dress was definitely a great choice - it fit super well and wasn't too heavy (like I thought a sequined dress would be). Although it was a bit hot to wear something like this in June, I found it was easy to dance in and photographed really nicely. Just make sure to tape the front of it so that it doesn't gap!

Beautiful dress, loved the gold.
The sequence kept running up and moving in directions--very noticeable. Also---it was really heavy and long. I had to pin the edges up. The color isn't exactly the same in the photo--it's more of a dull gold.

Never felt prettier! Such a GODDESS kind of dress
I could not at first understand how to tie the dress! I called customer service ans they were a great help.. I ended up pinning and taping myself in, making it a little hard to move around as freely as I would have liked. I loved the dress, but for a 0 it felt pretty big. The sides were really low, so I had to pin them up a little. The length was perfect with heels. Overall, the dress was SO GORGEOUS! The sequins were perfect and made it easy to accessorize with minimal jewelry. I have never felt better and I received a lot of compliments. Rent this dress! Just be aware that the fit is less than ideal and that getting it on takes a little tape and sticky boobs, but it is well well WELL worth it.

AMAZING DRESS! Perfect for Black Tie event.
The dress is really gorgeous in person. Definitely runs large - this was the smallest size available and I had to tie the back straps together to make it work - but it worked! Loved every minute of this dress!
Ashley November 15, 2012
Were you really able to rent a 0R? It looks like it is no longer available. The smallest size is a 2R to rent.
RTR CustomerNovember 19, 2012
Hi Ashley! The 0R is no longer available to rent, but you should be fine in the 2R, they are not too different!

Hard to figure out how to wear it
I rented this dress as a backup to the dress I actually wore. It was designed in such a way that it was hard to figure out how to wear it and when I did figure it out, it was hard to not have a wardrobe malfunction. It looked beautiful on the website, but I did not feel comfortable wearing it out to a function.

When people told me I looked like I was going to the Oscars.
I LOVE this dress. It is so beautiful and is very flattering. It was a little hard to figure out how to tie it though. The dress I tried on was in the medium size range, so it was a little big for me.

Showstopping!
Absolutely stunning! While it runs slightly on the larger size, the dress is a wrap with tie closure that allows you to adjust the size and v-neck cut in the front. Pull it tighter for a more snug coverage or loosen it up for a larger fit or deeper v-neck. The choice is yours. The gold silk with matte metallic sequins made everyone stop and stare. I felt like a celebrity on the red carpet :)

Hi there, did you wear really high shoes? I am 5'0 and renting this dress in a couple of weeks? Worried that the dress may be too big
RTR CustomerSeptember 19, 2012
Hi Kylie! The regular measures 58'' from shoulder to hem and is recommended for heights 5'1''-5'6'', so you should be perfectly fine in 2-3 inch heels!

Best dress of the night!
This high quality dress was gorgeous! The dress fit a little loose and was a bit long in front. A 2R probably would have been a better fit. The dress also has a good weight so it helps to keep the dress in place. Also, if you do rent this dress, some of the sequin are flipped, but with several swipes of your hand along the fabric, the sequin goes right back into place. The plunging neckline, sides and back are sexy and classy. I received numerous compliments throughout the night :)
