Gorgeous

Great dress, runs a bit large, but the fit is very nice and comfortable. The dress could use some maintenance, some of the beading was loose, but nothing too noticeable.

Tons of compliments :)

The dress is 2 pieces, and I ended up wearing the 16 slip and the 14 dress. Very pretty, just the right amount of sparkle. It did have a few pulled treads where the beading was coming off, but not very noticeable. Would rent again .

So many people couldn't believe it was me.

I really loved this dress. I wish I had gotten it in the 20w but was quite surprised the 18w fit. The only drawback on this dress is that it hurts to sit on it. I was at a wedding outdoors on hard plastic chairs and the dress left quite an impression on me. I would rent it again in the 20 for comfort sake.

Needs repair

I wore the 16 instead of the better fitting 14, because the 14 was too short on me ( and I'm short!). This dress has lost the majority of its beading. RTR should repair, replace, or just stop renting this one out all together. Many hanging threads where beads used to be. Still pretty, and I got compliments, but it does not resemble the photos. Now it looks like a lace dress with some occasional gold sparkle. Really comfy. Outer netting is stretchy. Slip underneath enables a regular bra to be worn.

Loved this dress! It was perfect for a 1920s themed trade show!

The dress hugged my curves in the right areas, and I received many compliments on the dress. It's classy and looks great with pearls! I would definitely rent this dress again. True to size and hits above the knee.

Perfect for a 1920's Inspired Fundraiser!

I typically wear a size 14W or 16, but ordered an 18 and 20 in this because I have quite a voluptuous bust and booty, so sheath style dresses are not my best fit. However, since the dress style in the 20's era was more strait and not particularly body hugging, I opted to wear the 20. The dress is actually two pieces... a black slip-like underdress with the woven, beaded overlay being a separate piece. This was another reason I chose the larger size, so it would not rise up at all. There were a few loose beads on this dress, but not really noticeable and it definitely didn't detract from the elegance and beauty. It was PERFECT for our event!

Great dress!

This dress fit true to size. I felt like it was a little long for me, even though I am 5'3. It was to my knees. It was perfect for homecoming! Will definitely be renting from RTR again!

Great 1920s era dress

Since this dress ran large it was perfect for a 1920 style party. Size down if you want form fitting. I was a little nervous because the slip is so short, but I just made sure to "check it" when sitting down. Less beading than I expected, so not sure if it has fallen off or was not really there to begin with. It worked really well for the party I attended. Also very comfortable.

Pretty but a bit large

This dress was very pretty in person, but it does look different in real life--it's much darker than the bright gold on the model. I had this as a backup style but I wasn't able to wear it because it ran too large on top.

Not gold

First of all this dress is not gold as pictured. It is a two piece dress with a black slip and a black overlay that has gold beading. The picture suggests the dress is more solid gold and it is absolutely not. Fortunately I knew this when I rented the dress because other reviews have pictures and you can see how good it looks. The fit is odd. The dress fit but was too tight around my word section. The slip is more fitted than the top part of the dress but the top part is also fitted with stretch. Personally I would the dress uncomfortable and did not wear it. I think this would fit someone with a straight or hourglass body and not a pear or apple shape.

This dress runs VERY large. Wish there was a 14, but the belt helped a lot to define a waste. It was super sparkly and fun!

Birthday Dress - runs large - still cute

I am typically a size 14-16 and I ordered a size 16 and size 18 dress. I didn't even try on the 18 because the 16 was quite large. I wore it anyway but ended up pinning it 1-2 inches under each arm to give me a little more shape. I will I had ordered the sizes 12 and 14 instead to choose from. I am 5'10" and it basically came to my knee or maybe a little above it.

The dress was so comfy! It fit a bit big, which wasn't the worst thing in the Vegas heat! I would certainly rent again!

Wasn't able to wear it :(

I rented this for a Vegas bachelorette party and was unable to wear it. Dress runs large. I loved the length and the cute cap sleeves but found the overall look too matronly, though perhaps due to the dress being too large.

I loved that I could wear a normal bra & normal panties under this dress! Very comfortable and flattering ... It was a little big but I'd rather bigger than too small. It was gorgeous!

Beautiful and comfortable

I didn't end up wearing this dress. It runs large and the 16 was loose. I did try the belt technique like another RTR reviewer had and it did bring it together. I opted to wear another RTR dress because I didn't have the right belt for the job and there was some loose beading on the 16.

Blah

This looked like a paper bag on me. A pretty fabric--but the cut is terrible and not flattering. There is no shape. Also--this is heavily beaded and some places the beading was damaged.

This dress ran huge.

This dress ran a full two sizes two big. I got the 16 because the 14 was unavailable, but a 12 would really have been needed to provide any shape like in the RTR photo. Had it fit, it would be lovely. It's actually a separate slip (black) and over-layer that is more of a knit. And don't be afraid, the slip has some stretch to it. Had it fit, this dress would have been so comfortable to wear, but it was unwearable and I wore my other rental option.

I wore this dress to my Roaring 20's themed Bridal Shower.

This dress was in rough shape (several beads were hanging by a thread) and it was huge, but I didn't have a backup plan for my bridal shower so I made it work. It's worth noting that the dress is entirely separate from the sheath/slip underneath. In hindsight, I should have contacted RTR immediately - now I know what to do. I think the dress would have been more flattering if it hadn't been so big. It was modern and yet fit the theme perfectly and it photographed beautifully.

Easy, classy, elegant!

I rented this dress for an out of town wedding and had it delivered to where I was staying...one less thing to pack! I rented my usual size and a size down and was surprised that the smaller one fit better! Very comfortable as its not too form fitting...allowed for easy movement. Wedding was in a warm climate and having a more loose fitting dress was much more comfortable in the heat. Bead work was just the right amount of texture without being flashy. I got TONS of compliments!

Celebrating a Year in Style

I rented this dress for the gold sheen but when I got it, it was a lot darker than I expected - almost black. Unfortunately the smallest size was a 14W which was quite large and not form fitting for me at all (I'm usually a 12) - but I was happy with the dress overall since we went out for a large meal that evening, I had room to move around. The dress is comfortable with curves but I wish they offered a few smaller sizes!

Rented for my "Roaring out of My 20's" 30th birthday party.

Beautiful dress and very comfortable. It comes in 2 pieces, the black shift and then the beaded over dress. It does run on the larger size, I ended up wearing the smaller of the two sizes and it was still very comfortable. Some of the beading was a bit loose on the dress, but no noticeable tears or anything. This was my first RTR experience and I loved how easy and convenient it all was! Customer Service worked closely with me when the original dress I rented was last minute unavailable to a previous renter's late return. Juliet from RTR was extremely attentive and helped me get another dress that arrived on time. Fabulous customer service!! And so many compliments on this dress. Highly recommend.

The dress had just enough sparkle.

Perfect for the occasion. I wore the size I usually wear in dresses, but it was a little large on me, but not so big it was frumpy. Some of the beads were falling off, but it wasn't noticeable to anyone but me.

I rented this to chaperone a high school prom with a "Great Gatsby" theme.

The dress is prettier in person-- the beadwork is gold on black and sparkles more than you can see in the website. The beads do come loose easily, and the dress is a black slip with an overlay of the beaded chiffon. It was super comfortable and conservative enough to wear as a teacher around teenagers for the evening. The gold is very flattering in person. I ordered both an 18W and a 20W and the 18 was still a bit on the large side, although the dress is not clingy so it flowed nicely and was flattering.

Great dress for a 1920s theme party

This was a great dress to wear for my company's 1920s themed party. I added a pearl necklace, pearl bracelets, a sequined headband with a feather, and a pair of gold and diamond earrings from RTR. The fit is a little large - I normally wear an 18 and I wore a 16. The 18 fit, too, so it wasn't huge or anything, but I liked the way the size 16 was a little bit more fitted. As far as fit goes, it didn't cling to my stomach too much, which was a plus. When I sat down, it felt a little short, though. Overall, I was pleased with the way it fit and looked.

Loved this dress! It was beautiful and I got soo many compliments on it.

This dress is gorgeous and so glam. I wore it to a night time wedding and everyone loved it. It does seem to run a little big, however, I fluctuate between a 14 and 16, and the 14 was unavailable for the weekend I needed it, so I got the 16. The 14 definitely would've been better for me. I ended up not wearing the black slip that came under it because I didn't want to pin that and ruin it, and it was much too big. Instead I just wore a black cami and a black bodycon skirt I already had, and then I pinned back the gold overlay part so it would be more fitted. Overall it's an amazing dress, I'd just suggest sizing down. :)

Great Dress!

Got this dress for a speakeasy themed birthday party and it was great! I was so happy it was a perfect fit for the theme without being a costume or your typical 1920/30s dress. It was a little big but still looked good and was really comfortable.

I wish this dress were available in smaller sizes! I just couldn't resist. I normally wear a 14 but it looked like it would work anyway and it did. I probably could have worn a 12 in this, as it's stretchy and runs large. Cinch it with a gold belt to bring in the waist.

This was a back up dress. It runs really large. Looked like a sack on me. Wasnt anywhere near the look I wanted for my birthday. Its a pretty dress great if you're looking for a dress that just falls on you and not showing any type of shape.

Great dress for 1920's themed party!

Runs big, I normally can wear a 16 or even and 18. The 14 was the perfect size for me, my husband said this is the best dress he's ever seen on me. I was suprised that there was a black lining, then the mesh beaded dress goes over top. it worked great, just didn't expect that.
