Very flattering to curves but short!!
This dress is very flattering to a curvy figure. It is very light and flowy, but with nude undergarments at night, it was not sheer. Hopefully the photographer's pictures won't tell a different story. (Wore to a cocktail attire rehearsal dinner) I wore a "sticky tab" bra and had good support (36D) and you could not see it on the sides. The bust under the arms is strangely big, but can be tucked. It was not available in a 10, so it was a little saggy at the back, but I tied the sash in the back and that held it up pretty well. I am normally a 10-12. I was a little disappointed with the service and condition of this dress though. I called customer service to inquire about the length after having received it because it was much shorter than I had anticipated. The fit notes stated 2 lengths - neither of which was petite. The dress did not have a dot on the tag to indicate that it was actually a petite, but it was above my ankles - I am 5'6". I ordered the shorter of the 2 lengths, which is what is recommended for my height. I was told that I should have called prior to ordering as the fit notes came from the website of the designer but weren't necessarily accurate to this dress. It also arrived with a small hole in the hem in front, but it was hardly visible. I would have rated 5 stars if not for the side of the bust and condition and service.

Back up dress that I didn't wear
I got this as a backup option even though I usually wear a size 8. The dress fit but was a little tight in the chest and on my back, so probably would've worked very well if it was a size 8, which wasn't available. I like another option that I had better, so I didn't wear this one.

The pattern was unique and gorgeous and the design/flow complimented my curvy/hourglass figure.
I usually wear a size 14 in dresses, but for this dress I would've worn the 10. However, the 10 was unavailable so I opted for the 8 and the 12. The 8 was just too tight around the waist but fit my bust well (I'm a 36DD). And the 12 was way too big in the bust and waist. So, I couldn't wear the dress. But, the pattern is beautiful with specks of silver/gold throughout it. So sad I couldn't wear it...

Looked good, but didn't make me feel like a million bucks.
I rented this for a black tie awards dinner. The two sizes I wanted weren't available, so this fit, but not perfectly. I wore it without a bra, but wish I'd had some kind of half-bra (backless bra? does that even exist?) to keep my chest from looking like it was sagging. The sides near the armpits stuck out a bit, and the back cut was tight enough that it wasn't truly flattering. Plus the buttons were hell to do and undo.

Perfect for a Miami wedding!
I fell in love with this dress online. The back is absolutely amazing! That said, the fit is a bit weird. It was tight in some places (under the arms) but loose in others (bust and waist). I ended up using a few pins and some fashion tape to get it to fit just as I wanted to. With that, it was perfect. I wore a 4L (2L fit but 4 gave me more room to adjust). It was just long enough for me with flat sandals.

Beautiful, unique dress!
This was a stunning dress! It was super light and comfortable, perfect for summer! I wore it with 3-inch heels and the length was just right. The metallic strands in the fabric are both gold and silver, so you can choose whichever metal you prefer for accessories. There was a little loose fabric around the bust, as some of the other reviews mentioned, although it seemed like it was mostly because I have a high waist, but there was ample room in the bust (it wasn't stretching awkwardly, or showing too much cleavage through the keyhole). I would definitely consider this dress again. It was a perfect for a formal event event where you don't want to feel too dressed up (and just a little sexy).

I absolutely loved the print and the flowing fabric.
The dress runs a bit large. Very flattering, I received a lot of compliments and the print is beautiful. The Nu bra did not work for me but I was able to alter a bra and it worked out.

I received compliments all night!
One of my favorite RTR dresses so far. I wore this to a wedding and I received compliments all night on the fabric and the open back. I have a fuller chest and the top was a bit tight and impacted the opening of the dress in the back. It didn't look like the pictures on me but it was still gorgeous. I wore this dress with wedge heels and it was the perfect length.

wore it to an outdoor wedding, it looked fantastic.
the nice thing about this dress is that the size didn't matter so much, since it kind of wrapped around it was easy to adjust. The fabric was really beautiful, kind of sparkly and filmy. I loved it.

True to size, except for the length
This dress was extremely comfortable, and I got a lot of complements. I am 5'4" and ordered a 2R. I tried the dress on when it arrived, and I knew right away that it was way too short. The dress did not even touch the floor when I was barefoot. Fortunately, RTR had a 2L available that they sent to me. The 2L was perfect with 3.5" heels on.

Lovely, but didn't fit quite right.
The fabric on this dress is lovely, and I loved the bodice from the front. On my size 12 frame, the open back seemed really wide and wasn't terribly flattering, and the petite length was too short even for flats (surprising, since I'm only 5'4"). I'd recommend going with the regular length unless you're under 5'3". Also, definitely requires a slip - you can see right through the full length of the skirt.

Gorgeous flowing gown, super comfortable!
Fit was fairly true to size, I was able to size down a bit because of the open back, but I might have been more comfortable in an 8. I wore a nubra as well as a nude half slip (based on other reviews that the skirt was see through in some light). This was the only size available, so luckily it fit great! The sides do gap a bit (near the armpit), which is the only reason I did not give this dress 5 stars. I got compliments all night long, and felt so graceful moving around the ballroom. I am about 5'2-5'3, and with 4" heels the dress just grazed the ground.

Mardi Gras... need I say more!!!
The dress was nice, although I must admit that I do not like dresses that tie in the back. I wore the dress to a ball... it was out-of-state, so I had the dress delivered directly to my hotel. If I were at home, I would have covered the waist tie with a decorative belt (instead of tying it in back). Also, the dress did slightly stick out, as indicated by others, in the breast area; however, it was not too bad. All-in-all, I was pleased with my rental experience, and I would definitely consider renting again.

Great for an island.. not for the city
I rented this for a fall wedding but ended up going w my backup dress. The dress would be beautiful for an evening beach wedding but the material was thin and came across a little cheap... it was also completely see-through, making it completely inappropriate for a wedding in NYC. It also ran very short, the 2L was still about 2 inches too short for me with a lower heel. But again, I think it would be great for a beach wedding.

Such a comfortable dress
This dress is super comfortable but definitely still appropriate for a formal affair. The material is very light so probably best for summer. As other reviewers mentioned the dress does stick out a little right by the armpits but you can fix this with fashion tape. I did find it ran a little large as the 10 was loose on me.

Felt so pretty and fancy in this dress!!
It was a gorgeous, light fabric. The back is sexy, you need a strapless/backless bra though. The only thing didn't fit perfectly is the sides by the underarm. They were a little big and could have used some tape. Other than that, I loved this dress!

Beautiful, elegant, comfortable
Although the bottom of the dress was a bit see through I wore a skin colored skin like thong. Your legs are visible only in certain light so I thought it was fine. The dress was long so I wore 4-5inch wedged heels that worked out.

Easy dress to wear, many many compliments
I'm 5'3" and 155 lbs and dress fit perfect. I'm not as well endowed, but some double sided taped make the halter top fit like a custom dress. Wore platform heels and danced the night away without worries about stepping on the dress. Fit well into a black tie wedding. If you wear a bar extender, the flow of the dress covers the stomach where the bra extender crosses your body (so you can go backless) -- great fit.

It's a beautiful dress - the stock photo on the site doesn't do it justice!
I could only try on a size 10 in the boutique and was convinced by the stylist to get a size 4 and 6 rather than a size 2 and 4. I wish I had gotten a two because I needed a fair amount of tape to prevent the lower back from sagging. I don't think you need a slip like others have said but I was at a nighttime event.

This dress was my first choice for a black tie wedding in Palm Beach but did not fit right.
I read most of the reviews on this dress but loved it anyways and ordered it. It really is a beautiful dress but it did not fit me properly. The chest area was too big by my armpits and flared out to the point that everyone I showed it to said I could not wear it without having to alter it. Also, the fabric is really delicate so I was afraid of damaging it. I did not end up wearing the dress.

Comfortable dress for hot weather weather, good fit for tall frame
I wore this dress for a black tie wedding in early summer at a formal venue. The dress' length made it feel formal, but the material was light enough not to feel constrictive. The wrap-front and open back were flattering, but the slit in the bodice is barely noticeable. I wish it would have been more visible, as it would have broken up the long column of fabric. Ordered the 8L but was not available - 8R was a little short in 4" heels (5'10") but made walking up and down stairs easier. I agree with other reviewers that the skirt is a bit transparent if you catch the light wrong - but a strategically placed hand / clutch / tuxedo jacket will keep you safe!

Beach Formal Fabulous
Dress was a huge success and I received loads of compliments all night. The colors are more vibrant than in the photo. I was worried that the gold and silver threading would be too gaudy, but it was perfect. I wore a slip since the material is a little sheer. I also tacked the 4" "keyhole" slit shut since it was a little too revealing for a swanky beach formal affair.

This dress is truly stunning! The slight shimmer makes it iridescent, and I felt amazing in it!
I loved everything about the fit of this dress, except for the length! It was much longer than I thought it would be. I'm 5'5 1/2 and didn't think the length would be an issue - so was disappointed when I first put it on and the fabric was pooling. I put on the tallest shoes I could find and still had the slightest graze on the floor. It luckily was not an issue with the platform wedges, but definitely something I would have hemmed if I personally owned it! Best for taller women.

The unique pattern of this dress was a real eye-catcher!
I rented this dress for a wedding, but unfortunately did not get the chance to wear it because I ended up feeling uncomfortable by how low cut the back is. The dress is really stunning, and if you're cool with showing a little skin in a sexy, classy way than I would highly recommend it!

Perfect for a beach wedding!
This dress was great for the beach wedding I went to. The top fit was a little off on the sides (the material didn't lay flat), but overall the fit was good. I used a Nubra which worked well. A slip is a must, because you can absolutely see through the dress in certain lighting situations. I wore black underwear, but I was rushed to get ready and just had to hope that no one was looking ;) The regular length was perfect for flats.

Beautiful dress for an outdoor event
This dress was beautiful for an outdoor formal affair. My primary dress didn't work out - but this was a great back-up. Was very comfortable and easy to move in. Only issue I had was the fit of the sides on the chest - was a bit big on top.

DId you wear heals?
ChristineNovember 13, 2014
Definitely need to wear heels since the dress is a bit long - I think I wore 3 1/2" heels and the dress still brushed the floor
