This gorgeous dress!

This was my back up dress and I am SO happy I went out on a limb and rented this. The pictures just don't do it justice, I received compliments all night long and I felt like a superstar. The dress runs really small so getting the right size is vital because this dress has no give. I am 160lbs, 5'8 and a true size 8, occasionally a 10. I ended up going with a 12R based on the size chart and I am so glad I did. It is tea length so it stopped right above my ankles and showed off my shoes. You cannot go wrong with this dress, it's a statement piece!

Funky elegance

I didn't end up wearing this dress because I felt it was about too festive for the wedding I rented for - but I probably will keep in mind for over the holidays. The skirt is fun and whimsical and is balanced by a more demure (yet still fitted) lace top. It isn't floor length - more ankle - and I think would be perfect for a festive holiday party. Def for the right, unique lady/girl who isn't a wallflower - and some bold jewels really amp up the fun factor :)

Dress was a showstopper!! Compliments all night! Comfortable, classy & sassy all at the same time.

Not as low cut as the photo shows. No cleavage was visible at all.

Stunning dress but not if you have curves

Omg I wanted to wear this dress so badly to my daughters christening... it was a stunning dress on the hanger and on! However I have hips, and the sequin material had NO stretch at all so though I could wear it, I was unable comfortably sit in it.

Were you trying the 12 or 14? Very similar stats to you and really love this dress!

Very pretty

Very pretty dress, but didn't wow me in person and did nothing for my shape. The waist sat high on me, I think because of my larger bust. It isn't as low cut as in the picture. A regular strapless will work fine. The lace is a darker purple than I expected. I wound up wearing the Tanya Taylor Hillary Dress instead, which was stunning :)

Runs Small

I preferred the dress online more than in person, it is lovely but it ran too small around my hips and waist, I could hardly zipper the back. Would recommend going a size up particularly for curvy girls!

A million bucks without spending $$$$

This dress will make anyone look like a million bucks! Lucky for me and my stylepass, I didn't have to spend full price on it. Sadly the dress only came in one size since the other was unavailable but good thing it was the larger size. I wore a strapless nude bra that seamlessly worked with the cut of the top. It'll show but it's not obvious. Wearing pasties May show through the key hole if you lean forward. The sequins was not itchy but the skirt cut was a little restrictive. Definitely not dropping it low in this dress. Paired it with a gunmetal clutch, rose gold heels, and simple rose gold earrings. You don't need much beyond that because the dress is gorgeous. So many compliments all night!! I wish I could wear it again ! Definitely my favorite rental.

I got so many compliments on this dress! Paired it with red velvet heels and gold earrings.

Perfect dress for the formal wedding I attended. The dress is fitted in the top and through the waist and hips. The dress hit right at my ankle. The top was more of a plum color than I expected, but still a beautiful rich color. The keyhole isn't as deep as pictured on the model. The top didn't show a lot of cleavage on me. Lovely dress and would highly recommend!

Gorgeous dress worn to a formal, evening event.

Stunning dress and received many compliments. I'm 5'7 with an athletic build and I usually wear a 2 or 4. I wore a 4 and it fit like a glove. There is absolutely no stretch, so err on the bigger side if you want to be comfortable. A 6 may have been a bit more comfortable for me. The RTR sample picture does not do the dress justice. They seem to have put an ill-fitting sample on the model. The keyhole, in actuality, is more of a sweetheart neckline, so doesn't go down to the navel like the picture shows. The dress, when fit properly, also hits a little higher on the ankles. The dress on the model I think is 3 sizes too big and too long.

Sparkling Show Stopper

I got so many compliments on this dress! Heads up though that you need to wear spandex shorts because the skirt is slightly uncomfortable. Had scratch marks on my back right by waste line. But what's high fashion without a little hassle! Perfect for a fall or winter wedding.

Gorgeous dress in person!

Unfortunately the bust was too big for my 36B's. The modesty panel is more modest than the photo shows, and the dress hit right at my ankles. This dress would be amazing for someone curvy and busty.

Unique design with vibrant colors

The dress is fitted from bust to thighs with no stretch, but the 2R was standard. It's very well made the the colors are rich and beautiful. It was exactly as I expected from the RTR images.

Subtly Sexy and Super Complimentary

Fit was spot on---any smaller and it wouldn't have fit! Needed help getting it zipped up. But I was able to walk and sit comfortably. Dancing was a little difficult on the arm raising (lol), but didn't deter me at all. Got compliments on it all night and the next day! Felt great all night. Perfect for the wedding I attended where some women were in gowns and others in shorter cocktail dresses.

Absolutely loved this dress

I absolutely loved this dress! I am normally wear a 2-4 so I got the 4R. The dress fit like a glove but has zero stretch. If you are in between sizes like I am I would recommend ordering the larger size. Beautiful dress, amazing quality, compliments all night long!

Sparkle and fun

Great dress! Received lots of compliments. I'm 5'4" and it hit right above the ankle. It's not as low cut as pictured on the model. I sized up to be more comfortable. My size fit but bc of the sequins, the larger size made it easier when sitting down.

This dress really sparkles and shines beautifully for an evening event.

The fit is true to size, I'm 175 and I wore the size 14 to give myself some breathing room and that was a great idea. This dress is demure but sexy with the lace, but as other mentioned, it's not nearly as sexy as the picture online. I loved the fact I could wear this to a black tie work event and feel totally appropriate because of the length and how the top covered the cleavage area. It's a very elegant sexiness.

I loved this dress and so did everyone else. Festive and fun yet tasteful and professional.

This dress was incredible. It is the perfect length because you don't risk stepping on the bottom and it adds the perfect flare to a formal evening. It can be a bit stiff by the shoulders, but other than that I found it to be quite comfortable. I am 5'3 and 117lbs and size 0 was perfect.

I absolutely loved this unique, timeless, sophisticated dress, and so did all my friends.

I stood out from the crowd and received so many compliments in this dress. It is definitely eye-catching, so you need to be ready for strangers to notice you! I usually wear dark colors and was a bit nervous to rent this dress, but was glad I did. The top half of the dress is a beautiful, elegant burgundy color, and the bottom is super fun without being over the top. It was cute & classy all at the same time! I wore it with a high bun hairstyle which worked well. I wish I could keep it! Only small cons were that the sequins chafed a little around the waist and the column shape made it slightly hard to dance in.

Absolutely perfect dress

I decided to take a huge chance and rent off the RTR. I was so skeptical because I'm so picky and need to try on before committing. And not knowing what this dress would look like on me only a few days before the event was definitely taking a chance. I am so happy I picked this dress! It is absolutely stunning. I have a heavier set body type and this dress made me feel so good! I got so many compliments!!!! Will definitely be using RTR again

Felt like a million bucks!

This dress fit like a glove, so it's perfect if you know your exact measurements. I wore spanx to be more comfortable while partying all night, but they weren't necessary. I got a ton of compliments from strangers, including a drunk lady who had to run her hands over the sequins on the front. Felt great, looked great.

Obsessed.

Wearing this dress made me soooo happy. It is so sparkly and fun and really stood out at a gala full of black dresses and suits. So many beautiful details and really high quality. I got lots of compliments from a variety of ages in a rather conservative crowd. It's definitely form fitting and takes a zipper-helping friend but otherwise was super easy to wear and you don't need any complicated bra or other undergarments with it (I wore strapless). There is a tiny bow at the top of he keyhole opening at the bust, which I hated when I first looked at it, but it's really not noticeable once you're wearing the dress.

AMAZING!

This dress was perfect for a December wedding. The dress runs small, I am a true-to-size 6 - but wore an 8 for this dress. The sequins are almost muted, so it's less flashy then you might think. Also, even though the dress was almost mermaid-like and tight, there is a little stretch in the bottom portion of the dress, and I had room to move Able to wear a regular strapless bra. Super flattering. Cap sleeves were NOT tight on my arms. Compliments literally ALL night. Must rent!

Beautiful but fit just so so

I am 5'7 and the length was odd. I am a 34a and felt like bigger boobs would have helped fill it out on top. I thought the dress was beautiful but didnt do anything for me. Went with my backup dress

This dress is so unique!

I ordered this dress because it looked so different. I wore the OR. When I first I tried on the dress it seemed a little snug in around the waistband and I got worried I would be uncomfortable, so I was going to wear the 2R for some breathing room. But, when I tried in on 2 days later I decided to wear the OR because I liked how the bust fit better. Had I been dancing or moving around a lot I might have worn the 2R. I wore a padded bra to give the extra pop to the bust since I am so small. The length of the dress fell right at my ankles. That is one of the other reasons I ordered this dress was to be sure it wasn't dragging on the ground. I wore a rose gold simple strap 4" heal and rose gold jewelry. I had so many people come up to me at the event and comment that they loved the dress and it looked stunning.

Perfect for a winter wedding!

The fit is great! I'm curvy with big boobs, so i always feel like im ALL boobs or the neck is super high. I had to wear a strapless bra with this but it was still comfortable and I got A MILLION compliments on it. There is no stretch in the skirt because of the sequins, which made going to the bathroom and poppin' on the dance floor a little challenging. But it was worth it.

beautiful and unique mixed media gown.

Wore this piece for a wedding and was in love with the fit, the color and fabric contrast. It was surprising that the skirt didn't feel or read like wearing sequins which can sometimes be heavy and/or gaudy. I rented this piece for a early fall wedding, so the sleeves and length and weight were just right for the weather as well.

The dress was gorgeous, unique yet timeless at the same time. The bodice was a bit narrow, but nothing that my broader shoulders couldn't handle. I elegant and modern, and got many compliments on the dress.

Great color and shine

Had to go up to the 8 because the smaller size fit better everywhere by my waistline. The lace on the bodice was a little scratchy, but not too uncomfortable. Great dress for a winter wedding.
