The dress was beautiful and elegant. I got loads of compliments on it, and it photographed nicely.
Halter around the neck is long.

Felt like the "Pippa Middleton" of my sister's wedding!
This dress fit very well! I received many compliments from wedding guests and people I walked by on the street! I definitely felt special. Snug across my hips but in a way that flattered my figure. Halter/chest was too big to wear bra-less, but some padding from a stick/on bra helped. I'm 5'7" and the dress was the perfect length with 2" heels! I recommend measuring yourself (according to the size & fit guide in the description) before choosing a length.

Beautiful dress that made me feel fantastic
This dress is fantastic! Color and beading on top is gorgeous and so elegant. The bottom portion fit perfectly, form fitting but not too tight. The top was a little loose, but double sided tape and safety pins did the job. I would reccomend wearing an adhesive bra and also securing the halter latch with a few safety pins. I wore flats, so it was a little long but nothing too inconvinient. Absolutely loved it!

Stylist Review!
This gown is absolutely stunning. I love the halter style with the open back. The gold sequin clusters are a beautiful touch and frame the gown nicely. The color is not quite as pale in person, but is still a great light pink. It does run a bit large in the top. I would have preferred the 0 instead of the 2. I'd recommend sizing down if you're smaller in the bust. You definitely need to either go braless or wear a NuBra with this style because of the open back. At 5'7" I would have fit better in the long-length. Amazing choice for a black tie event or prom. Pair it with statement earrings!

Beautiful dress! Beautiful detail!!
I'm 5'7" and I ordered the 8R. With 3 or 4" heels on, it was the perfect length except for the long train in the back, but that wasn't much concern. The top however was very big, but a couple safety pins did the trick! And the hanger strings happened to stick out sometimes.. Overall the dress was beautiful in person! The dress is more of a peachy pink color, and the detail in the dress is actually both gold and silver which I thought was just gold! This dress was super comfortable as well!

I really loved this dress! I couldn't have been happier to wear it.
The dress ended up being a little big and hung off of me in some places. Although the extra room was nice after eating a meal and to not make me feel self-conscious, I did wish it was a little smaller. All in all, it was a great dress especially for a rental and receiving it the day before! I definitely recommend that you are able to wear/walk in taller heels if you are on the shorter side and are interested in this dress. It was quite long on me, even while wearing 6 inch heels.

I got a crazy amount of compliments on it! Super different too which made it even more chic!
The dress fit like a glove and I found it to be super flattering. It was a bit big in the waist and bust. I wore 6 inch heels and the dress dragged a little. You will have to wear a backless bra for sure. Overall, I'm more than satisfied the way it turned out and I wish I could just wear it everyday!

Wore this to my senior prom, absolutely loved it and got so many compliments!
Gorgeous dress! Was sort of big, but I was able to wear it anyway. Dress came wrinkled at the bottom.

Beautiful and very original dress!
This dress was gorgeous! Beautiful color for the summer. The fabric is great but be ready to have it steamed or bust out your own steaming skills because it was shipped wrinkled. Once it is steamed it doesn't wrinkle easily though. The fit was pretty true to size the only issue was around the bust area and above the waist it was a little loose. Otherwise it fit my hips like a glove. It's fairly long, at 5'2" I was wearing 4.5" inch heels and the dress was right on the floor. The best part about this dress is that it is so original, you won't see someone wearing a similar dress.

I went to a Great Gatsby wedding and it was the perfect fit in to the wedding.
I am more full in the hips and not in the chest (very pear) so I couldn't get the fit around the bust I wanted because I needed the room to fit around my butt. However outside of that it was great.

This dress was so beautiful. I felt very glamorous in it and received so many complements!
It was a little large in the top--what I mean by that is that the v-cut just came a little too low so the dress fell a little awkwardly on my hips. I wouldn't say it's tight necessarily, but I am glad that I got one size larger than I usually do. I got the long size in this and it was VERY long. Even with my four inch heels the dress kept going underneath my feet. I would say If I had 5 1/2 in heels it would've been perfect with the long length. The color was peachy-pink. All in all, I loved the dress and felt amazing and comfortable in it! Would definitely recommend!

elegant yet fun!
This dress runs big! got the 6 and 4. I normally wear a 6. I'm 5'2 120 lbs 34DD curvy. the 6 was giant. the 4 was a little baggy. I had to take in the back and take about 1.5 inches on each strap so my ladies didn't fall out. once the last minute alterations were done it was great. super comfy.

Wore this to my senior prom and loved it. Unforgettable dress.
Very comfortable, not too tight but certainly not baggy- halter top was a bit loose/low on my flat chest, but nothing a little pinning can't fix. Wearing 4 inch heels, the back of the dress touched the floor and the front showed my peep toes. Gold detail work was so beautiful. This is a showstopper.

Unique and pretty dress
The dress is really beautiful in person, it is more peachy pink than the pink in the model photo though. The long is super long, I wouldn't recommend it unless you were at least 5'10".

Never Ending Compliments!
I had another dress planned, but got an email from RTR a couple days before that the dress had been returned damaged. I ended up going to the Flatiron store and picking out this dress the day of. I tried this particular dress in both colors since they had the blue in a 4L and this one in a 6L. I loved the fit of the size 4 but fell in love with the light blush pink color of this dress. It was kinda loose and kept shifting while I was dancing, but besides that it was perfect! I received so many compliments from so many of the guest and my date loved it. I wore 4 inch heels and the dress was about half an inch from the ground. I don't usually wear bras at all and didn't with this dress, but the dress does have a low back and the neckline is a little low so a sticky bra would work.

I didn't wear.
The dress is much more pink/peach in person that it was on my computer. This was a backup dress for me. The cut was VERY flattering, but I had the size 2 R and it was extremely long (I'm 5'2"/5'3"). Length made it unwearable and wasn't crazy about the color, but otherwise the fit was great. My 1st choice dress just did a little better for me.

This was my second RtR experience and again it was fabulous!
I wore this dress as a bridesmaid in my brother's wedding in August of '15. After a springtime yoga teacher training, I was pretty streamlined by the time the wedding rolled around so I found that the 4R was much too big and baggy. The halter part in particular was very loose so I had to go with the 2R. It fit well, perhaps slightly snug at the hips but only slightly. I wore a NuBra as the listing suggested. I was definitely happy with how things turned out!
