Chic holiday party dress!
This dress was the perfect combination of sexy yet modest. It hugs your curves but has long sleeves and hits around the knee ( I'm 5'8"). No jewelry is needed, the dress is perfect on its own!

Loved everything about this dress. The colors were awesome and it photographed well.
The shoulder area was large for me. It seemed like it was made for someone with broader shoulders.

Felt really classy in this dress.
Very close-fitting. Material will keep you warm if you're standing in line outside, but won't get you too hot once you start dancing. Felt like a queen all night.

BEAUTIFUL!
Absolutely adored this dress. It fit well and didn't make me feel self conscious. The pattern is very flattering and the colors are beautiful. I wore it to an Indian wedding and loved that it wasn't a boring, plain dress. I can't wait to rent it again.

I tried this on in RTR's try-on event this fall. Will definitely rent it...it is stunning.
I do not favor prints but the fit is so wonderful ...that factor had to be zeroed out. Gorgeous material.

dress like no other! ITALIAN SIZING!!!
I wore this to a hospital benefit. I loved the fit-when you know your size in italian sizing,you can't go wrong. They design for a woman's figure like no one else! I wear a U.S. 4/6 and U.K. 10 - the 44 fit me like it was tailored specifically for me, except the arms, way long. I folded them under and they were fine. I'm short,so it was to my knees, but so form fitting, it was sexy enough. I wore glitzy emerald and diamond swarovski crystal necklace & matching earrings which worked b/c the place was dark and the dress didn't show the jewel design overtly. I wore gold sandals and had a gold clutch and sparkly gold and clear crystal cuffs up my one arm.

Unique and pretty, but too long
This was one of 2 dresses I ordered for a fairly formal event and I chose to wear my other dress. This was too long and wouldn't have looked good if I had tried using hemming tape because it would then not fit as nicely and the print would have been cut off. The other dress I ordered was about the same length but was a sturdier fabric and fit much better so I actually liked the length. I think this would be great for someone on the taller side but it was a flop for me. It is a fairly thin, silky fabric with a liner that isn't really attached, which also bothered me. I always look and feel better in a body con dress when its made with a sturdier fabric and isn't at all fussy.

Sophisticate yet über sexy
Let me first say I have a slim but shapely build so I typically experience issues with dresses fitting properly unless professionally tailored. So I was pleasantly surprised when I slipped into this sexy number and it fit like a glove! Hands down this dress was a home run and I received loads of compliments at the wedding. I felt like such a lady and enjoyed every moment of the day.

Stunning, unique and as sexy as "modest" can be!
I rented this dress for a Modern Orthodox wedding in Georgia...what a way to dress modestly! The service was impeccable-- my dresses arrived ahead of schedule and with a few beauty samples. It fit like a glove. The material has a good bit of stretch in it, satin finish, and the sleeves were long enough to meet the tops of my palms. Wore with shimmery red earrings--no other jewelry necessary. These photos were taken at the end of a very long day (2 hrs in a car and a wedding), hence the wrinkles at the mid-section). Highly recommend the service and the dress.

I absolutely loved this dress.
This is an extremely flattering dress. I received many compliments on the style and fit. It is also versatile--understated elegance allows you to wear it at a variety of events, day or night. Other viewers noted it runs small due to the European cut. I would order the size you typically wear, then go up one size on your second option, especially if you are curvy (the good news being this dress is made for an hourgkass shape.) I am typically a 0 or 2 and wore a size 4 in this dress.

Unforgettable
This dress was AMAZING. I wore this to my family Thanksgiving gathering, and received so many compliments! The dress is very fitted, but so flattering. Although the sleeves were a little long, I could roll them under, and no one noticed. Probably my favorite rental so far, and I would definitely rent again!

Awesome NYE perfection
I almost hate to review this dress, because I'm afraid everyone will rent it, and it will never be available for me to rent again, which I definitely intend to do. This is sexy, cool, stretchy, comfortable, flattering, and just fabulous. It's very silky, so if you are wearing tights, it will ride up your thighs when you walk, but it still clings to your body, so it's not skimpy. It's lined (though the lining was a bit longer than the dress in my case). Everyone in my NYE party loved this dress - lots of compliments.

This is such a versatile dress, whether party or date, even a casual dinner with friends.
The pros would be its versatility, elegace and soft texture, and so on trend for 2013. The only con is that is runs small, so make sure you size up or you are familiar with European sizes, if getting just one size.

Got many compliments for this dress. Way more stunning in person.
Snug fit, but not overly tight due to the stretch of the material.

Fitted, Elegant, Comfortable & UNIQUE!
I wore this to a benefit dinner dance and felt elegant and sexy in this body-con-fit beauty of a dress. I ordered both the 40 and 42 and originally thought the fit of the 40 was a bit too tight... .especially around the chest/back/arms...and the hip area is quite small but the 42 was a little too big on me (arms of this dress are quite long). When I tried the 40 on again and wore it around the house for a bit, the material stretched and molded to me. It worked out perfectly (so glad I wore it around a bit beforehand) - I was extremely comfortable in it all evening. The zipper on the back adds a bit of an edge to the design, which I loved! (see my back of dress photo). I went simple with black shoes and gold-tone earrings. The dress pattern is so unique, not much else is needed... although I love the accessories/necklace shown on the model and worn by some of the other girls. This was "different" for me - but that is what I love about the RTR experience!

Very cool
I like this dress and it would be great for a edgy statement (concert or fashion show). Unfortunately for me, I think that it would look best on a model figure. I am fairly thin with a little curve, and I felt like this emphasized the curves in a bad way. You need fairly small hips and a small tummy to look good. The fabric is silky and does have some stretch. Order your normal "designer" size and one size up.

Very comfy dress, perfect for a rehearsal dinner in the city!
This dress felt so comfy, got compliments all night! The color and design are truly beautiful in person I wish we could have gotten better pic to give you a closer look at the design. I have curvy hips, so I ordered one size up as per other's recommendations and I felt great.

A great conversation piece!
This dress is one of my all-time favorites on RTR. A great conversation piece that will have everyone at the party asking where you got it from! This dress ran true to size if you want to wear it as a fitted style. The fabric does not have any stretch, so I would highly recommend ordering a larger size for your free backup!

Loud and Proud
It's meant to be worn fitted. The front of the dress (where the pattern is) shifted slightly on me. I don't know if it's because I was wearing Spanx underneath it or if it would just do that anyway.

Beautiful dress. Loved the print.
This dress runs a little small. Because it was a little tight it seemed to bunch up after walking. I was still very happy with the dress because it was so pretty.

Great for a special occasion!
This dress turned heads all night. Must wear spanx to keep the look slender allover. The suggested necklace was perfect too. It simplified the bright jewel tones of the dress.

Colorful and well fit
Love the long sleeves; I love this silhouette of dress. I am three months post partum, so a little self conscious of the lower abdomen area, but this was for a family Christmas party, so no hiding that I had a new baby. I normally wear a 0 and I think this runs a little small, in the shoulder and rib cage and butt areas, so I went with the 2 size. Wore with black suede pumps - I'd prob opt for gold jewelry bc those are the tones in the dress. It is pretty fitted throughout so I'd recommend if you are well proportioned - have to go up a size if you have bigger hips/butt.

Comfortable, fun!
Dress was lots of fun to wear. I am very broad shouldered so it was a bit tight through the bust and the back, but the dress had a little give to it. Got lots of compliments. Just a note that the pattern on the dress is not as bold in real life as in pictures.

What a fabulous dress this is! It was comfortable enough to dance in all night!
I loved this dress but my only concern was that the arms were a bit long for me. The sleeves on the smaller size were better but I wouldn't have been able to eat or drink.

Very high fashion dress for a bold look!
Super high fashion and something that will definitely stand out. It was fun to accessories with art deco / glam accessories. It is also very modestly cut, which can be a good thing. The fabric is stretchy - and a little unforgiving. If you have a tummy, you'll want spanx or it may not be the dress for you. As someone who is 5'6'', I found the dress to be a little long and the sleeves were definitely too long. I ended up scrunching them up most of the night into a 3/4 sleeve. Otherwise, completely true to size. Overall a super fun dress!

I am 5'8" and it seems the dress is for shorter women as the hips and butt portion were too "high"on me. dress is not very stretchy, sexy yet conservative, though.

Show-stopper dress!
I wore this for a party and received so many compliments. It is hard to tell from the picture, but the pattern on the dress is actually a jewel print. The dress is silk and very form fitting. It mostly ran true to size, but there is no give in the hips, which is why I say it "runs small." The dress is Italian and both my mom and friend commented that the dress looked foreign and exotic. The dress was slightly formal for the party, but it was so beautiful that it didn't really matter!

Great novelty dress
I loved the pattern of this dress, the back is solid black which one might not be aware of from the picture shown. The top and bottom of the dress fit well, but the waist was tight, which made the dress not fall as smoothly as I had hoped. I wore it anyway, and was told that I won for best dress of the night!!

I was told "Every year I choose my favorite dress of the night, yours is definitely it this year!"
It does not have a lot of give, so if it's tight, you'll feel it. It was tight across my chest and shoulders (I have wide shoulders) so it was a little uncomfortable, but It still looked fab. If you are long waisted you're going to get that little pucker where it thinks your butt should be (too high) but I successfully kept it scootched down. The back is plain black with an awesome exposed zipper. Great, bold dress, total eye catcher. A little snug and not very breathable, but a total show stopper. (Plus it brought good luck, I won 2 purses!)

I wore this dress for my birthday dinner.
The dress has a slim fit, but the fabric has a lot of stretch. Thank God! I really had a lot to eat when I wore it! If you are a girl with a booty like me, I would recommend sizing up just because the dress has a tendency to ride up around the hips when you move. Also, if you're a shotry like me, the sleeves may be a bit long on you. That said, the print of the dress is beautifully psychedelic, and the stretch in the fabric makes it very comfortable. I loved the dress. I just wouldn't recommend it for a day when you plan on pigging out!

All eyes were on me!
First of all, the dress fit gorgeously!!! The stretch silk made it hug in the right places without feeling binding. A very flattering cut for my athletic body (I don't say that about a lot of dresses). I definitely got a ton of compliments and attention the entire night and what girl doesn't love that! I will DEFINITELY be renting from Rent The Runway again!
