Loved this demure show of color, sparkles, and skin!
Got lots of compliments on this dress. As a tall girl, I loved the feeling of showing a little skin (abdomen behind netting, and thigh at the topmost point of the skirt in front) without being too bold or inappropriate. I wore this to a friend's rehearsal dinner in NYC and it was EXACTLY the right mix of funk and class. Love it!

Loved this dress! I got it as a back up, and I think I like this choice better! The middle is nude mesh, and other reviews say it was awkward when sitting but honestly no one notices and it's not that bad! Their is beading detail on the top which adds a great detail. I would say the one flaw is that the top was itchy at times, but I forgot about it as the night went on. I would definitely rent again! Lots of compliments!

Different and pretty
This dress is beautiful on many levels. Beaded very elegantly into the lace on the top portion. Mesh can seem awkward in some photos but in person it's stunning. I started the night in nude heels and ended up wearing cowboy boots rhinestone cowgirl for dancing and the after party.

Costume-y
I thought it would be chic but in the end I'm surprised it is actually in the RTR inventory. It looks like a figure skating costume on, with the awkward netting and bedazzled bust (admittedly you cannot see them in photos). I loved the fit and color but felt like a young girl in it and could not wear it to the wedding without feeling like a figure skater. Major disappointment.

Great Color!
Loved the color and this dress. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the nude mesh around the waist will wrinkle and twist and bunch. I kept trying to pull it taut so it didn't look funny. Otherwise I would have given it 5 stars.

Very nice "fancier" date night dress
This dress is very flattering, with kind of a middle eastern flair from the lace pattern. It's one of those beautiful dresses that I would have loved to buy, but makes such a statement that I would not wear too many times, so perfect rental. I'm between 4 and 6, and ordered 6 based on prior reviews. I actually thought it ran large, a bit loose on the see through mid section.

I wore this for a Holiday party and got a lot of compliments.
I got sizes 2 and 4. Size 2 is too small for me but 4 is a bit larger for me. I ended up wearing size 4 and it turned out fine.

Pretty design, bad construction.
I received this style when one of my dresses became unavailable. I would have loved the dress if the mesh lining laid properly. Unfortunately, it gaps and doesn't blend into your skin as it should. I wouldn't recommend for this reason.

Felt especially fancy for my birthday
I rented this for my girls night birthday party and I loved the dress. The color was very vibrant and deep - there were also sequins on it which was a really nice surprise. Everyone loved it! I'm a 34DD and weigh about 140lbs, the 6 was perfect but needed help to zip it up through the different kinds of fabric.

Wore this to an athletic formal
Beautiful color and very good fit. I also loved the length, might be a tad long on someone shorter however. The lining inside was a little bit itchy at first but did not notice it throughout the night.

Gorgeous, fun dress!
The wedding I was going to had a lot of options for wear-you could wear Indian clothing or formal western dress. I thought this was the perfect blend of the two, and I got compliments on it all night. It fit great, was comfortable, and was really fun to wear! The other reviews are right that it's more fuchsia in person (it's more red in the photos). If you have muscular upper arms it is a little bit tight but not painful at all. And the mesh in the middle can wrinkle which isn't super flattering, but I found that I didn't mind and I was standing most of the night anyway so it didn't much matter. Overall this was a fantastic one of a kind piece!

Can't count how many compliments I got! Love this dress!
The dress fit me like a glove. It was a a little snug in the shoulders but I have broad shoulders so I have become accustomed to that happening. It was SO comfortable. It has the perfect amount of stretch to dance around and the gathering in the front covered those inevitable tummy flaws! Everywhere I went I got compliments and I felt like a million bucks in it! I'm already planning on ordering it for another wedding in May!

Comfy AND Trendy!
I wore this to my fiance's birthday party! It was so comfortable and I loved that it felt like a bare crop top, but actually had fabric in the middle section. If you have a larger chest, be aware that the bottom of a bra might show in the sheer area. I had to be very selective about what bra I wore. Loved this and would rent it again! SO many compliments that night.

Gorgeous dress!
This dress is stunning! Really unique and beautiful color and lace. I loved the cut of the skirt. Its really flattering for a curvier figure. The color in person is much prettier than online. There is a bit of nude/tanned sheer fabric (like hosiery) for the mid-drift part of the dress and even though I'm pretty pale I think it looked pretty. Its essentially a sheer sun tanned hose on your tummy. On me you couldn't see it unless you got up close but I'm not sure that would work for darker skin tones.

Unique dress with gorgeous details
I loved this dress! Absolutely my favorite rental so far. The 4 fit great everywhere (not too tight) and the sheer panel in the midsection was sexy without being too revealing. There are sparkly beads on the bust that you can't see very well from the model photos.

Amazing Lace
1. There are about three tones of fuchsia in this dress. 2. The mesh is somewhat awkward and can make you look like you have stomach folds in that area. 3. It's comfy! 4. The lace is beautiful and so fun.

Good day to night dress
I rented this to wear to the rehearsal dinner but the dinner turned out to be very casual. My friend ended up wearing it to the ceremony bc she preferred it to her dress. Good day to night dress, and she said it was v light and comfy and easy to move in. (She is also hourglass body type but closer to a size 4 so there was some wiggle room but not noticeable)

Do I have to send this back!?
This is up there as one of my all time RTRs. The dress is perfect. The faux crop cutout hit right in a flatter part of my waist. My bra didn't peek out of the bottom, and it was long enough. Great fit and beautiful color and details. I felt super sexy and confident on my Valentine's Day date.

Great color, great fit
I wore this dress to a friend's wedding. I am 5 months postpartum and back to my regular size but was concerned as this was my first event post baby. This dress was fantastic. The color was stunning and the length perfect. This is not a form fitting dress, so for those of you that like your dresses tight you may want to look elsewhere. I received a ton of compliments all night but sadly didn't take any photos. I would rent or buy this dress again!

unique touches, gorgeous color, very flattering fit
I rented this dress for a fundraiser I was chairing. The theme was "A Royal Event." ala Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry. I had a tiara to keep in theme and it went well together. I got so many compliments. The dress color is more pink than burgundy. I paired with fuschia pumps and sapphire jewelry. I am a little too short-waisted for the nude middle. The fabric would bunch slightly if I didn't sit up perfectly straight, so I had great posture all night! I wore with nude demi-bra that did not show through and control top nude hose. It looked fantastic!

Stylist review
Absolutely loved this dress and did not want to return it! The color was so rich and amazing. I wore a 16 because it was the only one available but I'm usually a 14 but it for just fine. I got so many compliments in this dress. This dress also has a little stretch to it.

RTR Team Review!
Beautiful dress, incredibly well made with gorgeous detailing. It fit well, and I think would be really flattering on someone a little more slender, all of the fabric combined with my larger hips made me feel like I was wearing a beach coverup on bottom.

Evening wedding
The dress was nice, don't get me wrong, but I was anticipating the dress to look much better on. It didn't give me the "wow" factor I was hoping for. My boobs are large and waist small, so the middle was really loose. I probably needed a zero in the waist.

gorgeous color, pretty accents, tons of compliments!
the dress fit true to size, its strategically lined and gives the illusion of wearing a crop top and skirt without having to actually share your belly button with strangers. I'm pretty short, so i was concerned about the length but the slit hit right mid thigh and i was very happy with it. My only complaint is the nude mesh panel should be tighter. if you sit or slouch, it also moves and can make you look ripply or like you have rolls. so... i guess it encourages good posture? Regardless, i would wear this again. Its gorgeous and i got tons of compliments on it.

This dress was exactly what I expected.
I normally fit into petites and range from sizes 2-6. Size 2 fit perfectly but the middle mesh was a bit awkward at first. It was definitely worth it because of the beautiful color, detail and unique features. I was comfortable the entire night, received compliments on my overall look and didn't feel like I showed too much skin during my friend's conservative wedding. Next time, I would go with something darker and sexier.

Great fit, really comfortable, stylish and trendy!
Rented this for an awards show and it was exactly what I was looking for. Color was on trend (Nicole Kidman wore the same color!) fit was perfect. I loved the length and the sleeves for just the right amount of coverage to stay comfortable. Loved, LOVED this dress. Styled with simple drop stone earrings and laced open toe booties.

Unique and flattering
This dress was a back up when the one I originally ordered was damaged. This dress made me feel beautiful and sexy without showing off too much skin. Got tons of compliments! Super comfy and flattering on the tummy area! Would recommend this for different body types. More magenta than burgundy.

The color and mesh piece make this dress stand out.
The fit is slightly large. The color is flattering, as is the detail near the hip. You can wear a normal bra, which is always nice. I'm 5'7 and this dress went to my knees, so consider that if you're shorter. I paired it with Kate Spade "Trellis" collection earrings and cuff, and nude pumps.

Love the crop look
This dress was just okay -- it's a pretty color and cool style, but the mesh in between the two layers makes it feel too much like a figure skater outfit. No one commented on or really noticed the mesh (it was pretty dark at the restaurant), but I didn't feel as confident as I usually like to. That said, it was really pretty, I got lots of compliments, and it was a flattering fit.

This dress style and color was so original!
I loved wearing this dress to a close friend's wedding. Perfect color and length for an early fall wedding! Unfortunately the size 2 was returned damaged and would not make it to me in time. I was mailed the size 4 and it was pretty loose in the waist and arms and the length seemed long for the size. But got tons of compliments and was very comfortable! I would definitely re-order this dress for a future event.

Fit was true to size. The length is longer in back but was cute for midi style. I have a larger bust, 36D, and it was a little tight but I got away with just wearing pasties and it worked great.
