I LOVE this dress! I wore it out on my birthday and received so many compliments! The detailing is amazing in person. The color is a little darker and less pink in person, which was actually preferable since it's a really flattering nude. The dress runs very large, I rented another Halston dress in 10 and this one in 6 and they both fit perfectly so order smaller. Also, the straps are really long and hard to keep up (not adjustable) even when filled out with D's, maybe safety pins would help? Overall an AMAZING dress, you will love it!

Loved this dress! The tonal beading is gorgeous and the cut is extremely flattering. I wore it to a fabulous party where everyone was dressed to the nines and I received a ton of compliments. The dress runs slightly large --I'm usually a 6 on top and an 8/10 on the bottom in designer clothes, and the 6 fit perfectly.

The size 0 of this dress was too big for me in the bodice... The straps were long and it was baggy and poochy in front which ultimately made it so I could not wear it. On a side note, if the dress fit me I actually would have worn it with the sash tied in the back in a big bow-- I thought it was a lot cuter! Besides the fit issues for me personally it is a really beautiful dress.

*This should not be a mandatory field.*
I wore this dress to a Junior League evening event, and loved it. I'm normally a 2 or 4, but wore it in a 0. The beading and material were gorgeous, the length was perfect, and I got a lot of compliments. The straps were a little long, making it a low cut dress so I wore fashion tape to make sure I didn't have any "incidents.

Obsessed with this dress. I wore it to a sorority function and got so many compliments on it! Everything about it was perfect, the only thing that was a bit of a drawback was how large it was on me. I'm usually a 6-8, and the size 6 was pretty large. Other than that, it was absolutely beautiful! I wish I could have kept it forever!

definitely size down in this dress! I usually wear an 8 and could've worn a 4, but stuck with the 6 because the 4 was too short!

This dress is really pretty but it is HUGE in the boobs. I have DD boobs and unable to fill out the size 6 by a mile. I usually wear an 8 in dresses because of my large chest but in this dress I probably could have worn a 2.

I plan on using RTR many more times in the future. The dress was perfect!
I loved this dress. The detailing and color are even prettier in person. It does run a little large but probably not enough to where I would have gone a size down. A little more low cut than I typically wear, but not inappropriate. I would highly recommend it!

Loved my RTR dress. I can't wait to rent again! Everyone asked me where I got my dress... I happily shared my secret it was a great conversation piece!
I normally wear a 6 when sizes fit true, but I wore a 4 because of the other reviews. It fit perfect. Picture of the model does not show the beaded beauty of the dress. The beading sparkles. First person that saw me it in said I looked like a celebrity... I will take that compliment!

I wore this dress for my rehearsal dinner which was a very special evening. This dress just made it even more special. I received compliments all night and just felt great. A great dress that makes you feel great!
This was my first rental from RTR and I LOVED it! I ordered it for my rehearsal dinner last January as an alternative to the traditional white. Out of a 4 and 6, the 4 worked best. I have wide hips but small bust. The top is extremely loose(more so for us small bust gals) so have your double sided tape on hand. I received complements all night! It was sparkly and worked well with a black blazer(my wedding was in January so it was cold). Be aware that the dress is on the short/small side. Don't confuse this with fit, which is true to size, it's just a slinky little dress! I paired with sheer black hose and it looked great. Will definitely rent again!

Great for Valentine's Day Date
I normally wear about a 3-4 and ended up wearing a 0 - good thing I read other reviews and noticed that the dress generally runs large. The size 0 fit was fine on me, except I wore it without a bra and didn't feel comfortable unless I put fashion tape near the top (just in case). I found that the dress lining tended to inch its way up throughout the night as I walked from place to place, so I either had to cover myself with my jacket or fix myself in the bathroom - kind of a pain. Some little bead/sparklies were missing and there were a couple loose threads, but I suppose that should be expected from a previously-worn dress. Overall it was a good fit for my Valentine's Day date and fit the occasion nicely. Very satisfied!

I rented this dress for a school ceremony for my fiance, and felt super glam in it. Most of the other reviews said that the dress runs large, so I ordered a size down. While ordering down was a good decision for the top (and even then I safety pinned the top), it ended up being pretty short on me. There is a slip underneath the beaded/sheer portion of the dress which was constantly sliding up all night, so I ended up wearing black tights underneath to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. However, I did get several compliments on the dress and aside from yanking the slip down all night, I'm very glad I ordered it!

Beautiful Dress
I thought this dress was beautiful and fun for a night out, although, I had 2 issues with the dress. The first is I had to pin the chest area of the dress together, it was big enough to see straight down. Second there is a tan slip under the dress and that would ride all the way up to my waist in just a few walking steps so I was constantly reaching up to pull it down.

This dress was fun!
The dress ran large on top. I wore it out later that night and used fashion tape to keep it in place and that worked a lot better than how I wore it in the morning. The dress is much sparklier than you see in the pictures. I dressed it down for the night and up for the night and it looked great both ways. It was very fashionable and comfortable. I wore it without the sash because I thought it made me look thinner without it and then it wasn't as dressy.

This dress was gorgeous, fun and sophisticated all at once. Beware wardrobe technicalities...
When it was behaving I loved it, but I spent the entire night pulling the under skirt down (there are actually pictures were only the sheer top layer is covering my legs - thank goodness no one noticed in the moment!). Also, the bodice was either incredibly risqué or too large (I'm 32D), I had to plaster my décolletage in fashion tape - and then reapply half way through the party. You can't wear this dress and hug someone without worrying, but you will look fantastic!

Beautiful dress for this Vintage Tea Party bridesmaid!
I absolutely loved this dress. I wore it as a bridesmaid in one of my best friend's "Alice in Wonderland Vintage Mad Hatter Tea Party" wedding. Got a ton of compliments! What the reviews say is true, the top part is way too big/loose and goes way too low. I knew this before and was prepared with a safety pin! Other then that, zero issues. I didn't have any problems with the length. It is a bit peachier in person than I expected. Was so sad to return it!

I was so happy I got both sizes.
Loved, loved, loved this dress! It fit perfectly. Other reviewers complained about the slip but mine wasn't too bad. The draping in the front was my favorite part, it's ridiculously flattering!

Perfect, flattering glitzy dress
Wore this dress to a sorority function. Decided to opt out of the sash. Got many compliments and I loved the color and the sparkle! Watch out for the slip underneath, it rides up a bit!

Great dress that's actually sparkly and very beaded
A little loose in the chest. May need fabric tape to keep that cross of fabric in place. Much more sparkly than in the picture! I suggest ironing the bow before, it's a little flimsy

Was hoping to wear this to a party...
but the chest was huge on me. Even tape couldn't fix that one... that straps were way too long and not adjustable at all.

Amazing night celebrating great friends
This dress arrived without it's sash. I ended up buying fabric to create another one, but then decided I liked the dress without anything on the waist. The dress ran much larger than I thought it would, so I did have to pin it in a few places.

Dresses came a whole day ahead of time and made me feel so glamourous!
Very low cut and big in the chest, but that's how it's meant to be and a little double stick tape worked fine! Color is a gorgeous nude and the beading is exquisite. There is a shorter nude slip under the sheer lacy top part that extends a few more inches.

First of all, I just want to say that RTR customer service is unlike anything I've ever seen! After receiving a couple ill-fitting dresses, I was in a panic because I didn't think new ones would arrive in time for my weekend trip to NYC. Not only did RTR stylist help me (for hours) find new dresses, but they were hand-delivered to my boyfriend's apartment in NYC the night of my arrival. Anyways, this dress is beautiful in person - the picture doesn't do it justice. As others have mentioned, it is a bit darker, more of a nude color, which I prefer. I read in some reviews that the straps were long, but since I have a larger bust (32DD) I didn't think it would be an issue. Unfortunately, it was difficult to wear a bra with the dress, but one was absolutely neessary if i ddin't want a wardrobe malfunction. I would absolutely recommend ordering a size down in this dress. Overall, however, I loved this dress for a night out on the town!
