This was the PERFECT dress for a palm beach wedding. The built-in bustier is accommodating of a full bust (DD) and cinched in my waist beautifully.

Non-stop compliments in this one-of-a-kind stunner.

I wore this dress to a cocktail event and the compliments never stopped! I felt like a million dollars in this dress and would wear it again in a heartbeat! Definitely good for a smaller bust. I am a size 2 and my backup size 4 was much more comfortable, this dress runs small.

this dress is beautiful and super flattering. it does run a bit small, i'm almost always a zero (sometimes that's even big for me) and i barely fit into this dress. also it's a darker color in person. i recommend wearing with spanx as well, as the bones are pointy and hurt when sticking into you!

This dress is beautiful...absolutely stunning. It is quite small up top though - so be careful. Also, it is a bit darker in reality.

Ordered like two sizes up, but it is an amazing dress. I am a DD and this gave great support. Would definitely rent again.

This dress is stunning in person. Unfortunately the dress I got was too small and a backup size wasn't available when I ordered it. Will definitely get this dress again in a larger size!

Everyone was obsessed with this dress. I will 100% rent this again!

This dress is stunning! The fabric is rich, and the pockets are embellished with beads giving the dress a unique touch. It runs very small so make sure to order up! There is a built in corset so no bra is necessary. I paired this dress with a gold statement necklace which completed the outfit but was not necessary since the dress can certainly stand on its own.

I usually wear a size 2, but this dress runs pretty small, because I fit in a size 4 (size 8 for this dress). The dress is heavy, but the material looks so much better in person! You don't even need to wear a bra, because it has a built in bra :)

Great looking dress!!

I had wound up with this dress after an earlier issue with a different dress that i had chosen for this occasion that RTR wasn't able to ship to me. Although it looked great you could tell it was way past it's prime. The boning in the inner corset was broken and poked and scratched all night. Also the beading on the pockets flapped around in an unflattering way. I did get a ton of compliments but wish I could have enjoyed being in it more.

Awesome dress.

I rented this dress for my engagement party-- it was amazing. All of the reviews are pretty accurate-- it is definitely small (especially in the bust area). I am normally a size 0, and they were out of the next size up in this dress. So I ended up wearing the 0, and it actually fit great. You just really cannot have a huge chest in the smaller dress. I am a 32B and it gave it just the right "oomph" without looking trashy. Gorgeous dress, heavier material. I got a ton of compliments on it all night!!

Great party dress!

Overall fit: True to Size

It was a great dress. Loved the length and the colour is beautiful. The corset underneath is super tight so don't eat too much right before! It also sits super low but I pulled it up and it looked just fine! My only complaint would be that some of the wire in the corset was picky, but I still loved it.

Fast service and right on time.

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small

I was told multiple times it was the best dress at the party. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because some of the boning in the corset were poking out, which was a little uncomfortable.
