This dress was one of my RTR favorites!
I can't say enough about this dress. I've been a RTR customer for several years and this was one of the best. The fit, the sheer and sparkles, the color, the POCKETS that came in so handy -- it was perfect. I wore it to host a work event and received many compliments - the best one was "your dress deserves an award." I highly recommend it!

Fun, adorable dress!! The pockets are the best!
The skirt does poof out a bit, so I would recommend making wise underwear choices! I wore like a boy shorts cut pair and didn't flash anyone ! It's not too short but short enough to show off some leg! I loved this dress! The color is gorgeous

This dress received compliments all night. It was definitely a head turner.
The dress seem to fit a bit larger than I expected. I'm usually a 6 and most dresses from RTR fit tighter however this one was a bit looser on my body. Either that or I have lost weight. The dress was a success! I kept getting compliments all night. And it was very comfortable as well. Would definitely rent again but maybe a size 4 next time.

Show stopper
Loved the dress. Very flattering. Tons of compliments. Cons: tiny bit irritating on the arms due to the sequins, but not too bad. My dress arrived with several stains on the pink skirt. Big disappointment. They didn't have another in the same size to send me, and I really wanted to wear this one… So I took it to a cleaners (at my own risk and expense, RTR advised against doing this in case something were to happen to the dress I would have to pay to replace it) and they were able to get out most of the stains. They did offer to overnight me a different dress, but I really wanted this one. They also offered to give me a refund if I returned it that same day. I was very happy with the customer service except it would've been nice if they would've covered the dry cleaning cost since it came stained.

I got a lot of compliments on the dress. It fit well and was comfortable to wear. Loved it!!
Fit well, only thing needs to be steamed when arrives and the beading was little itchy under arms but overall was happy with the dress.

Perfect dress for black tie summer wedding in Asheville!
Wore the 2 and it fit well -- not too tight under the arms. It was slightly looser than the 0 so I went for comfort. Couldn't measurable tell a difference with the 0. I was worried the skirt would be too wide but because the waist is narrow and the dress is shorter, it looked great. Loved the bright fushia color. The top wasn't too scratchy. I wouldn't wear any jewelry that could get caught in the lace detail. Top was embellished enough that the dress didn't need anything other than some fun shoes and earrings. All in all, a perfect dress for a summer black tie wedding at the Biltmore in Asheville!

Endless Compliments
I rent from RTR a lot! This is definitely one of my favorite rentals. The dress is beautifully detailed and amazingly comfortable. Pictures do not do this dress justice. The bodice is beautiful--and the skirt is forgiving. Paired with awesome accessories (care of my PRO style pack)--the outfit was perfect.

In love with this dress
I am in love with this dress! First, I have to say I was a little disappointed because RTR was not able to ship my "normal" size dress due to unforeseen issues. I didn't think an 8 would fit, but I had been exercising like crazy and crossed my fingers. The 8 fit perfectly! I did not end up wearing a bra. Typically I am a small 36C. My chest is 37" and my waist measurement is 31". Someone else posted their measurements for this dress and I found it really helpful. I got endless compliments and several of my friends texted me the next day on how much they loved it and where could they get it. It was a bit "scratchy" when I initially put it on, but honestly, I didn't find it bad at all. I have an 18 month old who constantly wanted to be picked up and danced with throughout the night...the beading was not an issue and I was comfortable all night. The zipper was hard to get up - you definitely need two people. I would rent again!

My entire experience with RTR was unbelievably amazing!
This was my first time renting and I could not be more pleased! This dress was my backup dress (after you rent a dress you are able to select several backup dresses from every price point and these backup dresses will be sent in place of your selected dress in the event that your selected dress is unavailable). I am a high school teacher and I wore this dress to chaperone Prom. It is the perfect combination of elegant and conservative (not too short or revealing) yet still fun and dazzling. The dress was comfortable and was not restricted in the arms or waist - I could eat, dance, it and breathe comfortably. The dress distracts from the waist and thighs and while I was worried the ruffle would make me look bigger in the waist it somehow did the exact opposite. 10/10 would rent this dress again!

Stunning - received so many compliments! Festive and elegant. Highly recommend!
Beading on top was elegant and feminine. The skirt was a vibrant pop of color and very fun. The bottom does wrinkle a bit as others mentioned, but I don't think it was very noticeable. this is perfect for a fun evening wedding or even a more formal cocktail party. The fitted top and flared skirt made a flattering silhouette. I found it to be true to size. I am 5'3" and the skirt hit me at the top of my knee, which was perfect for my preference. :) I was sad to part with it. Loved it!

What a classy, unique, fun, and comfortable dress!
This was the most perfect dress to wear to a garden wedding in the middle of summer. It was so comfortable and definitely fit true to size. The dress was in good condition, aside from a few loose threads that I just snipped off. It also has pockets, which is fun! I received compliments galore all night! It's a very versatile dress: the glitz and bold color make it perfect for a birthday or night out on the town, but it's an appropriate length to be worn to a wedding and black tie event. Pair it with black tights for a holiday party or go bare for an outdoor affair. I wore a nude, strapless bra with the dress. I also HIGHLY recommend wearing your hair UP when wearing this beauty. If you have long hair and wear it down, it will get caught in the beading and sequins. Plus, you want to show off the detail work of the dress, so sweep that hair up in a fancy 'do! Bonus: I didn't have to wear spanx! It was so sad parting from this dress. I will definitely buy or rent this dress again, maybe for a holiday event! Five stars all around!

Cute dress
Dress arrived on time. Dress was very wrinkled. Tried steam from shower and then hand held steamer. Nothing was touching those wrinkles. Ended up using iron with a cotton towel placed on top of the material. This helped a lot. The dress was fantastic. Tried on both a size 4 and 6. Ended up going with the 6. The size 4 was a little too small, especially in the chest area. Also because it was a little tighter, I found the top to be scratchy against my skin. Size 6 was perfect. Very comfortable. I was very happy with my decision to rent this dress.

Not very flattering.
This dress is gorgeous but, honestly, I didn't even wear it because it was not very flattering. I do not have big hips so after reading the reviews about how it makes your hips look big, I just didn't think that would be the case for me. Unfortunately, I should have listened. I'm sure its adorable on smaller girls but I am sad to say that it was not the one for me. I threw on a tight little number from my closet and headed to the wedding, feeling much more confident.

Fabulous with pockets.
This dress Was stunning. I wore this to my dance recital and the pockets came in handy for my headset. The fit ran large and I think I could have benefited from a smaller size. The dress did come water stained but you couldn't tell unless someone pointed it out. Def needs to be steamed upon arrival as well. Overall the dress was very comfortable and flattering. Looking forward to my next rental. You can not beat the feel and texture of this dress.

Loved the dress
Received many compliments on this dress and absolutely loved the pockets. Did not need to bring a purse as the were able to carry all of my belongings. My only complaint is that the mesh at the top was itchy and caused a minor rash on my sensitive skin. Overall, perfect for the occasion.

There is nothing negative to say. I rented this for my daughter who was having her grad party. She looked and felt wonderful, plus she got raves from everyone! Love this dress! The size was perfect, the fit was perfect. It looked like it was made especially for her.

The dress was perfect for the wedding we went to.
I ordered a six and it still had a little breathing room to it. I wouldn't say it ran large, but it fit comfortably with a small bit of extra room. The front section of the dress wanted to wrinkle a bit, but other than that, it was a great dress and fit nicely.

Pop of color and super elegant!
This was my first RTR experience and it worked out great! I could wear the dress with a nude strapless bra and be completely supported and concealed. I received lots of compliments and had no problem boasting that it was rented! The beading wasn't perfect (some wear and tear) , and the feel took some getting used to; but I'd still do it again! The skirt does wrinkle easily and it arrived a little TOO pressed, but some time out of the bag and some light steaming worked wonders! So pretty, so fun, so perfect, especially for a curvy gal like me!

Gorgeous Dress! So fun!
LOVED this dress so much. It fit true to size and was comfortable enough to dance in. AND IT HAS POCKETS! I got so many compliments. This really stands out at weddings in a sea of black dresses. And it's definitely dressy enough for a black tie wedding.

Stylist Review
The perfect cocktail dress! This dress runs true but we recommend going a size up for your backup. This style works best for A to C cup. It came to mid thigh on my 4'11 frame. There is comfortable room at the waist and hips but the fabric does not have any stretch. This style should be worn with a strapless bra. This style is so much fun. It is great short option for a black tie event, wedding, cocktail party, prom or sweet 16!

A million compliments!!
Rented this for 8th grade formal!! Was worried about finding something original and flattering for my teen daughter. This dress was perfection. She loved the pockets so she could carry her phone all night. The beading was a little uncomfortable under her arms and on the back of her neck, but she only had to wear for 4 ish hours. She didn't need to wear a bra under and felt completely covered and both parents approved since the beading helped cover the cleavage! Highly recommend!!!!

So many compliments
This dress was so pretty and very flattering. It got many compliments. Wore a black strapless bra and black shrug. The shrug protected the underside of my arms from being chafed by sequins. Some parts of the skirt needed to be pressed before wearing.

Unfortunately my dress i originally ordered got caught in a snow storm so never arrived and it was a long one. Went to the stores and this was only one that fit, was a little big due to lack of size options but was fun and got lots of compliments!

Great dress for a wedding
I really loved this dress. As noted in other reviews, my under arms were a little scratched up from the embroidered top, but it wasn't overly distracting. Loved the color of the skirt, but it wrinkled easily and some of the edges of the ruffles came turned up so it didn't lay flat. I wore a backless and strapless black Nubra underneath. My original size 4 was unavailable due to a RTR unexpected error, but I still got the 6 which was fine. I had a little extra room but it still worked out.

This dress is so flattering- and I was definitely the brightest dressed lady in the room!
This dress fits true to size. The beading is so lovely, but isn't scratchy due to the lining. I tried it on with a nude bra, which wasn't noticeable under the dress, even though the lining is low-cut. It was definitely a flattering shape as well, especially for a curvy lady. One note- the dress photographs very pink, but it is actually fuschia, which is a little more purple-toned.

There were a few snags and loose threads that I had to snip off. Other than that, the dress was lovely.
