Wore this dress for a New Year's Eve gala. Very comfortable and fit perfectly! Danced the night away with no problems!

Sad I didn't get to wear this...

Dress was beautiful and high quality but sadly arrived damaged. Ran true to size. A little snug in the waist but had to be that way to accommodate the open back.

Too large around shoulders/ bust. Interesting fabric under the light.

Unusual! Flattering for the shoulders and waist. Nice length. Easy as far as undergarments. Too loose up top behind my arms and in my chest, so I had to keep perfect posture all night, but it was wearable and enjoyed it overall. Wouldn't get again because I can't size it down because then the waist would be too small.

Pretty dress, but not for me

This dress is an eye-catcher, but it wasn't my style. The top felt as though it had too much fabric, and it rested very heavy on my neck and shoulders. The bronze thread really makes the color stand out. Again, pretty dress, but not my style.

I wore this for a work semi-formal party and got so many comments! Very flattering.

It does fit rather tight around the bust area. Definitely go up a size from your normal size because it runs a little small and is form fitting.

Pretty dress but fit was not as expected.

The material of the dress is gauzy, which the photo doesn't show. The bronze color was beautiful and as expected. The fit of the dress was not as pictured. The waist has no stretch and sits much lower than the picture shows. I have a small natural waist but larger hips so this dress did not work for me.

Great dress for a fall wedding!

I loved the dress when I tried it on but they only had size 44 and I needed it for the next day. I decided to go with it and just pin the sides a little so it was tighter. Worked amazingly! I loved the way this dress looked and it was so comfortable to wear.

Fun family wedding

I got so many compliments on this dress. The gold was more understated in person, which I liked. The back was the seller for me though, with the openness. I did not wear a bra with it, as I am smaller in the bust and it was tight enough to hold everything in place. It was so easy to dance around in, and I danced all night. Only drawback was the neck area was a little tight and awkward but I made it work. Thanks RTR!

Classy & Comfortable for more formal affair

Loved this dress! Wore it to attend an awards show and was just the right amount of class for the occasion. The material is heavy enough so that no bra needed but light and airy enough so that it moves really well with you. The only thing is make sure you have a safety pin or wear black underwear as the inside lining didn't have a zipper and without it pinned you could see booty through the outside material! That did not stop me from loving this dress.

nice dress with a couple issues

fits true to size and the open back is really nice. unfortunately the neckline is a little too high; it hit a part of my neck that made the dress feel "choky" and very uncomfortable. didn't end up wearing this. color was also not as bronzey in person, pretty much looks black.

Well made dress, a bit tight around the neck

It was a bit tight around the neck, but otherwise fit beautifully. A little plain.
