Beautiful and appropriate dress to wear to a family wedding

Dress was beautiful. It definitely had some sparkle to it and was slightly more puffy than I expected due to a layer of tulle. It was a very appropriate dress to wear to a family wedding...no cleavage (although I'm small chested) and I didn't have to worry about it getting too short while dancing. I did have to wear a strapless bra because the neck is cut rather wide (one of my favorite parts about this look). Only cons: along the zipper seam the layers are not sewn together all the way down...I initially thought the dress was ripped but it was on both dresses so I'm assuming it was meant be there. You can't see it really but if you bend down the layers separate and expose the black lining. The other con was the smell of the dress when I received it...the dress was nice and clean but had a very distinct sweet smell to it. Maybe it was dry cleaning chemicals? I ended up steaming the dress to try and get the smell out. Even my boyfriend commented on the smell. It's not that it smelled bad it was just SO strong. But overall it was a beautiful dress and I received a lot of compliments.

I got TONS of compliments all night! So comfortable and gorgeous!

I sized up after reading other reviews and am glad I did. The 4 was a bit tight in the chest/shoulders but the 6 was perfect and left room elsewhere so I could enjoy my meal and dessert and stay comfortable. :) I received tons of compliments all night! I styled it with black tights, ankle boots, and a leather jacket to add a little edge and it was perfect for the occasion of a good friend's wedding

I wore this dress for a fall wedding in Vegas

I wore this dress for a fall wedding in Vegas. I felt amazing and I got soooo many compliments on it. I wore a size 16 (compared to my usual 12), so the dress definitely runs small! Even the 16 was really tight in the bust area. It was also quite itchy... But it's the price to pay for fashion ;-) I loved the whole RTR experience.

Beautiful detail

I wore this to a wedding. I normally wear an 8 but it was too tight in the bodice. I ended up wearing the 10 for a more comfortable fit. I got so many compliments during the night! I did get a bit warm in the dress after dancing. Overall, I was very happy with it!

Beautiful dress but not totally what expected.

The gold detailing was beautiful, more pronounced on the dress than you would except from the picture. The neckline looked a little too Renaissancey for me once on and the arms were quite tight. A bit too tight, scratchy, uncomfortable. Also a longer than expected from the photo. Did look stunning in low lights at a holiday party.

BEAUTIFUL lace detail! This dress is gorgeous!

Fits true to size. Wore this for Christmas Eve and at the time I was more a size 12, should have gotten that but I got a 10 instead. Was still able to wear just somewhat snug. Has boning and tulle underneath the skirt but I didn't feel like it was too much tulle. Got so many compliments! Felt very pretty in this dress with all the lace detail!

Just enough glitter and gold

This dress was a little tight in the shoulders but was great otherwise. I loved wearing it and it made the party fun.

Georgeous fabric in very figure flattering shape.

This dress fit like a glove and was very figure flattering! It managed to successfully disguise my little belly pouch left over from my pregnancy. I felt comfortable dancing all night. The dress revealed a hint of cleavage without being overwhelming and the long sleeves made it perfect for a winter wedding.

Was the best dressed at the rehearsal dinner (sorry bride)

Fit a little snug in my opinion, but friends said it didn't look it. I am a true 12 and wore the 12. It was glamorous and perfect and I'm obsessed with the neckline!

Worn for an anniversary dinner!

Received many compliments on this dress -- however it was not without issues. The lace is clearly very delicate and had snagged from previous wear. Also the waist line is at an awkward place making the top fit more snug than I would like. The sleeves are pretty but also itchy from the lace detail. Not an ideal dress even though it looked so beautiful online.

It fit perfectly, in every way!

I love everything about RTR! Perfect fit for a curvy girl. I received soooo many compliments and gasps when people saw me in the dress... followed with sincere compliments on how gorgeous my dress was.... and those compliments came from strangers! I can't for my next occasion to RTR!

Not flattering on me :(

If you are petite this dress may not be for you. I picked this dress as a back up for a dress that didn't ship because it wasn't available. It is very pretty fabric and thought it would be fun and different for a cold weather wedding. I ordered the 0 and it just didn't work. It fit, it just made me look somewhat boxy and was too long for my shape (I am 5'4", 32c, 116-118lbs ) I didn't wear it and wish I picked something else! I think this would look better on tall people in general or maybe just another body type

Dress was absolutely beautiful, it is a little stiff so I steamed it a little bit and it loosened up and laid better.

Too tight in the arms

This is a very beautiful dress, but I was unable to wear it because it was just too tight on my arms. I'm usually a size 4, but I would've been better sizing up.

Pretty but a little tight on the arms

I'm a pretty standard 14 or 16, this 16 fit me but it was a little tight in the arma and felt restrictive so I ended up not wearing it. Also, it looks much shorter on the model then it is. I'm5'10 and the length was good on me !

Small

The sleeves and chest on this dress are very slim. The sleeves have 0 give. I would not recommend it for anyone above a C cup or it may not zip up the back. Overall, unless you have a very slim figure size up if you want to try this dress.

Pretty but not for me

I'm usually an 8 or 10; the 10 fit but it just wasn't flattering. The skirt was fuller than I expected and I thought it made my waist look thick. As others have mentioned, the sleeves are stiff and very scratchy/itchy.

I felt like a freakin goddess and received nonstop compliments

Much like a teapot, I'm short and squat. I was a little worried that I would be able to move once this dress was zipped, but the material is surprisingly flexible and forgiving. Overall the dress was extremely flattering and hid most of the areas that I was worried about. People were complimenting me all night. The photos don't do this dress justice.

Fun Cocktail Dress

Great dress for a cocktail party. Fit is true to size. Do not attempt to zip it alone. If you do not have help- you will not get this dress zipped. Neck line is wide- so you will need a strapless bra- or to go without. The bust is snug- so braless is ok.

Good for a holiday party

I rented this for my work holiday party. It was cute but a little matronly. The gold is not very bright, more of a brass color. It's a little tight in the chest and sleeves.

This dress is beautiful but I opted for another dress to wear. It's broad in the shoulder area and really shows your neckline and I like the length and the gold fabric is really stunning! Fits well for smaller frames!

Worst zipper ever

If I could give it negative stars I would The dress runs slightly small but fit overall but the zipper is nearly impossible at the top and less you have somebody else there to help you not to mention over the waistband also dress is ridiculously short I'm only 5 foot 7and it was practically indecent

Pretty but a little frumpy

Received this as a backup. Dress was pretty but I felt a little frumpy and did not wear it. I usually wear a 6 and the 4 fit well. It was pretty for a dinner out.
