Nice backup dress!
I got this to wear as a second look for my birthday. I ended up choosing to wear the other dress that I ordered because this one was a bit formal to go out dancing. However, the dress fit well and flattered my figure. It was a little longer than I wanted, but I'm short. Overall, I loved it and wish I could have worn it out.

Beautiful beaded design- lots of compliments
a little big- if it was mine i would tailor it in the shoulders for a better fit. beautiful beaded design and received many compliments
BrittDecember 2, 2012
Beautiful dress! I've been wanting to rent this, but I'm concerned it might be too long -- I'm 5'1" and would wear an XS or S. Any recommendations about length?
HollyDecember 4, 2012
Same here -- I'm only 5'0 and would wear an XS. Do you think the length of the dress would be too long for my height?

Lots of Compliments!
The dress is beautiful and I received a lot of compliments from strangers (and my date). It runs a bit large, so order your additional dress size one smaller than what you normally wear. The dress is designed for women with a larger chest and smaller hips - I had extra room at the top and the dress fit more snug around the hip area.

This dress is beautiful in person, the medium fit like a glove. And it was light weight and comfortable all night long.

Beautiful Dress!
I wore this dress for engagement photos in Miami. The dress is beautiful, however it runs large. I am usually a size 2 and the XS was too big.

I felt special and sexy!
This dress is sexy without being over the top. The sequined patterned flatters and the dress fits nicely, accentuating curves. It is long enough to be appropriate for most events. I didn't want to return it!

Nice dress with great details!
The dress was very comfortable and true to size. It is more fitted in the waist but as other reviewers described, it's good for it to be a bit tighter there to give the dress shape so it doesn't just hang off you. The detailing of the dress was nice but not too over done and material was very light--not heavy at all.

Sophisticated and Sexy for my Weekend in Vegas with my Husband
The dress is super comfortable and looked hot. I feel like photographs don't do it justice, as the lacy overlay casts shadows in overhead light. I felt like a million bucks in the dress and got several compliments from strangers. I felt sexy without showing too much leg or cleavage. My husband loved it!

I got so many compliments on this dress! The beading design is beautiful in person. The dress was really comfortable and ran pretty true to size. I'm 5'5 and weigh 110lbs and the XS fit perfectly.

Beautiful, classy dress. You can't go wrong with this one. You will definitely stand out!
I agree with what past reviewers have said..it definitely runs a little snug in the hip. If you have even some curves, I would order your normal size and your size up. I ended up wearing the XS, but didn't even feel like trying on the S, so i'm not sure how that would have fit. Great dress, and just the right amount of conservative too!

Loved it!
Originally I didn't order this dress, the one I had ordered wasn't deliverable so I switched it out for this one a day before! The customer service from beginning to end was AMAZING and I got my delivery right on time! This dress was a GREAT substitution to the original one I wanted and was very happy with it! I'm normally between an 8 and 10 and ended up wearing the Large.. it ran a little big, I probably could've gone down to the Medium (but that one wasn't available!) However this one is equally if not more beautiful in person and very flattering!!! I loved it and received many complements!

tons of compliments!
After reading the other reviews, I ordered an XS and S thinking it ran small. The small was a little smaller than I wanted, but it still looked great. Would've worn a Medium if I had it to do over again. It was a little snug and wouldn't have worked without spanx. :) But I loved it and the quality was excellent. Great dress!

I was worried about the sizing since it comes in XS, S, M or L but it fit perfectly all over. It didn't hug too tightly anywhere. I would wear this dress all the time if I owned it.

Incredible detailing...incredible night!
This dress runs true to size and is a perfect unique party dress. The beading detail is fantastic and stands out nicely against the nude colored sheath, without making you look 'nude'. I wore this to a NYE party in Manhattan and several girls came up to me to compliment me (and that's saying something for Manhattan)! It is very comfortable and I highly recommend it.

Chic & perfect for the occasion!
This dress was really great! I wasn't sold when I first tried it on, but it grew on me and worked out really well. It was very comfortable and the size was just right. It was just slightly clingy and had its unforgiving moments (but i did eat a LOT of the food b/c it was delish ....). I was worried about the skirt being too tight/restricting from previous posts but I didn't find that to be true and boogied all night. I received a ton of compliments and highly recommend this dress!

When both dresses I ordered turned out to be too big I was able to have another dress overnighted.
Its a very pretty dress but it does run a bit large. The smallest size did not fit so I couldn't wear it. If you are built like me ( long and lean) and prefer wearing form fitted dresses I would avoid renting this dress. All was not lost though- I simply called and was able to have a dress I had rented in the past and loved shipped overnight so I had a dress to wear.

It was absolutely gorgeous!
I rented this dress for a wedding that we went to over the weekend! Not only was it gorgeous, but everyone asked me where I had bought it! Even though I absolutely loved this dress, I do have a few complaints..1) it bunched up ALOT in the midsection, so I had to keep pulling it down! 2) it bunched up a lot in the back, like it was too small but it fit perfectly! 3) The tan slip came down past the black overlay - not sure if that was supposed to happen though! I still LOVE RTR and will continue to rent for every formal occasion!

Beautiful & Comfortable dress....Highly Recommend!
Everything about this RTR experience was great. I received the dresses on time, correct sizes and returning was stress free. I absolutely loved the dress. I had a little extra room in the XS so it was very comfortable and easy to dance in. I received so many compliments! Highly recommend the dress. ONLY con was that it was a bit longer then I would have liked, but I'm only 5'0'', so that is a pretty typical problem for me.

I normally wear a 6 or an 8 and the medium fit perfectly. I wore this to a rehearsal dinner and I got so many compliments on it from complete strangers. It is a classic, stylish dress and the perfect length, not too short. I loved wearing it.

Wore to a night time event and danced all night in this dress!
Had the perfect amount of stretch so it fit great but didn't stick to me. I did need to use double sided tape to fold up part of the attached slip because it was sticking out below the top layer of the dress. But overall it was a great selection and I'd wear it again!

SO many compliments!
loved this style...it fit like a glove, wasn't too short and had just the right amount of sparkle and edginess that i love. this dress is very fun, sexy and pretty flattering. the only problems i had with it were it cut into my shoulder/armpit area when sitting down and the hem of the overlay didn't quite match up with the liner. it was nice to be able to wear regular underpinnings although if you're worried about ripples and ridges definitely opt for some spanx. overall i received a lot of compliments and i felt like a super star. at a black tie wedding where a lot of women were wearing gowns i still felt fancy enough without having the extra skirt length. i would definitely rent this style again but i think it's more fun to keep trying all the other fab dresses rtr has to offer. another successful rental!

I got so many compliments on this dress!
The dress has a bit of stretch, so don't be afraid to size down a bit! Also, note that the black design detail that I thought was beading is actually sequined, so it wasn't quite what I was expecting, but it was gorgeous either way!

This was my first time using RTR and I was not disappointed! The dress was gorgeous, I got so many complements. I am 5'3 and was little worried about the length but it was perfect for the wedding we went to. The underlining was a little clingy, but nothing noticable to anyone else. Would definitely recommend!

Stunning in person
I usually wear a small and both the small and XS fit but the small bunched up in weird places. I think the tighter, the better for this dress. I couldn't get the bottom hem to match up quite right but otherwise I absolutely loved the fit and look of this dress. I received compliments all night and the dress felt conservative enough for work with just a bit of sexy.

I couldn't get the hem to match up quite right either, but thought that was actually part of the design. Oh well, it looks great both ways I think!

RTR was so easy. I flew in to a city for my best friend's wedding and the dress was there to meet me
This dress fit very well. I loved the detail of the beading. The under dress has a tiny bit of give, which helped with the fitting. I loved it and would recommend it especially for a petite woman, as the long dresses can make us look so short! This dress was elegant enough for a wedding and yet comfortable enough to wear all day.

Perfect dress for a formal occasion! A definite head-turner and different from everything else!
I'm typically between a 4-6 but based on the dress reviews I chose a small & medium as my sizes. The size small was perfect with enough breathing room however by the end of the night (after eating and dancing) seemed to stretch out a bit. I probably could have been fine in an extra small as well. Would absolutely rent again!

I am usually a 10/12 in dresses, but a Medium fit me perfectly! I have a large bust, (36DDD) but the medium fit like a glove. If you have a smaller bust, you may have to pin it or get the smaller size to avoid gaping. I loved this dress and got complements on it all night!

GREAT DRESS! LOOKS EVEN BETTER IN PICTURES!!
I normally wear a 6/8 so I ordered the medium and large. The large was entirely too big. I probably could have fit in the small, but I would have not been comfortable. The medium fit nicely. The black detailing on the dress are sequins not beads like I thought. This dress is very unique and classy. I wish it were mine to keep! I highly recommend RTR! They are very professional and you can tell they go above and beyond for their customers. Can't wait to rent from them again!

Sexy and gorgeous beading detail!
My sister wore this rather than me, she is anywhere from a 2-6 and wore the S. It fit PERFECT. It is super flattering, sophisticated looking. The beading and color of the underlay are stunning. She felt so confident and HOT in this dress. She is quite narrow on top though, for broader shoulder girls I'd get a second size up larger than you normally wear.

This dress was a HUGE hit!!!
What a great first RTR experience!! I had never received so many compliments on a dress before, ever. I got the XS and S but the XS fit perfectly. It was comfortable and I definitely didn't have any trouble dancing! I loved the detail of the dress, the sequins were beautiful. The only tiny con was I could see some wear and tear on the hem of the inner slip part of the dress at the bottom, but I used the hem tape RTR sent (complimentary!) and was able to fix the issue no problem. As another reviewer mentioned, the slip does not match up with the outer fabric but just use the tape and you will be good to go. I strangely did not notice this issue in the size S I tried on, might be because the XS fit a little more snug. Overall I highly recommend and plan on using RTR in the future!!

Got a lot of turned heads for this one!
The beading is soooo beautiful on this dress. I was terrified about the fit as I've lost a bunch of weight and didn't get a back up size but just risked it and got the medium. It fit perfectly and I was thrilled with how it looked. It was sexy but not overt.
