Love love love! Felt like a goddess

I loved this dress. However, I would have liked to have the XSR but only the SR was in stock (I fit XS better but it still worked!) It was beautiful on. Everyone else thought so too! One person even said "you look like an Oscars trophy! So beautiful"

Show stopper!

Very comfortable dress and received so many compliments. Maybe a little over worn.. Bones in the dress are not in the spots they should be and the material is starting to get thin. But still a great fit and dress! First time with RTR and will definitely rent again!

The color was bold and stood out from the rest.

It fit perfect! It wasn't too tight where I couldn't dance or anything. I definitely recommend this dress for any formal affair or formal party.

Perfect dress for the occasion

This dress is super comfortable while still being formal. It's form-fitting in the right spots, and has a good amount of stretch. For my height, the skirt did not drag on the ground (with or without heels on), but with heels on, they did show a bit, which can be a pro or con depending on your preference. Happy with my choice!

Loved the option of renting such a beautiful gown. People kept telling me I was glowing and the color really complemented my skin tone.

I wore this to a black tie Christmas party. I followed the sizing chart on this site and ordered a large, which was too large and long. I was hoping for it to be fitted at the empire waist (or semblance of it) and to pull off my 4 inch heels (I'm 5'4"). I had to make it work though (with tape and pins)! It was definitely a beautiful dress, but I would size down to get the best fit and the wow factor that I suspect this dress can pull off. The color was a bit more bronze than gold in my opinion. In my opinion this gown is Simple, sophisticated and has just enough glam. You can dress it up or down.

So Glam!

This dress is amazing and it looked so well in photos! I wore it to prom and got tons of compliments. It runs large, so definately size down for a good fit. I wear a 6 and the medium was too big; the small fit like a glove! I'm a 36C and it fit perfect around the bust area. It has a slit knee- high which is a wow factor. Nonetheless, lovely glown.

Details on the dress

The dress looked great against my skin tone and I received many compliments. My only concern is that the picture rtr gives is a little deceiving. The color of the dress is more of a dark gold with black accents but I wouldn't recommend wearing black heels with it because I tried black shoes and it seemed like a little too much black. And stay away from green because this dress is not green although that's what I thought initially. The dress runs a little long and big so I suggest to size down.

I wanted a dress that would shine on stage when I sang at a Miss America Organization alumni event.

The dress was beautiful and much less sparkly than anticipated, and on stage looked more metallic and much heavier than it actually was. The fabric is very light and soft, and moves easily, which was great because the event began with dinner, moved to seating in a theater, then finished on stage. So I was glad to wear some that easily transitioned. I think I might have actually been between sizes, the smaller size was a bit tight and the larger size was too large to be flattering, but regardless I received lots of compliments throughout the night and truly felt like a star.

boning was painful

This dress is not made for anyone with a broad back or large bust. While the dress fit, the boning in the bust was painfully stabbing me. I couldn't wear this dress comfortably

Ran really small

I ordered this dress as a backup and there wasnt a chance I could have worn it. I usually wear a size small, so I ordered that and could not even get it zipped. Also it was REALLY long even though I ordered regular. So it fits a little weird.

This dress fit the waist area but not the chest area.

Tight in ribcage

I have a VERY small waist yet this dress was difficult to zip and was constricting. The fabric was definitely meant for "winter wear" due to the heavy construction. Looks darker in person as well.

Beautiful dress, bad zippers

I rented this dress for a black-tie gala. The material is not as luxe as it looks, but that's not necessarily a bad thing as it seemed like it would be really comfortable but come off very formal. However, I ordered the medium and the large for this dress, and both would not zip. The medium was maybe a bit too small, but it wouldn't zip past the waist seam. I had two people try to budge the zipper (on BOTH dresses) to no avail. It just refused to move. If there was absolutely zero squeezing to do to fit into this dress, then you'd be fine. But RTR was amazing - I explained my problem and they sent me two sizes of another option just in time for my gala for no additional charge. The rep was fantastic and understanding, and the one I ended up with worked out just fine.

I love this dress- it's a classic beauty.

Love it and it was perfect to wear flats, which I prefer. Only down side was it was slightly small around the waist. I could zip it, but it was tight. And the MR was way too big. Ultimately, I was still happy with this rental and would recommend it to other!

The gold gave just enough glitz to be memorable.

FIT: This was a backup that I lent to my younger sister to wear for the weekend, since the dresses she rented didn't fit her. She is usually a 0/XS but even this dress was a tad small for her. I think this brand might run a size small in general. PROS: color, comfortable CONS: tight around bust area

Gorgeous dress but comes with quirks

I had a love-hate relationship with this dress. PROS: gorgeous dress, comfortable material, photographs well, and for anyone who is insecure about their stomach - it hides that well CONS: The zipper is a nightmare! Even though the dress wasn't tight, the material near the zipper is so thick that it took my bf 20 mins to finally get me zipped in. Size also runs small, and isn't necessarily a good fit for someone who's shorter or curvier. Overall, highly recommend ordering a size up. I did get a ton of compliments, though!

Christmas Party

I ordered this for a christmas party at my work. I typically wear a 10/12, and this was too tight to zip up on top so I returned it. Other than the size issue, the zipper is down the right side of the body, and kind of stood up and made my waist a little boxy. I was also surprised by the material, it was more of a gold netting than I was expecting. Sad it didn't work out for me.

Perfect for a black tie event!

The gold stood out and the slit made the dress breathable. I am 115lbs and 5' 4" so I tend to go for dresses that size small, this one fit like a glove! I didn't even have to wear a bra.

Really long for a petite.

Fits true to size (I'm 5 foot, 95 lbs, usually wear a 00P). However, it was LONG. Also, it cut in so as to really create side boob bulge. I'm not chubby by any means, but I simply don't understand how people pull off strapless dresses or the like without getting that boob bulge right by the armpit!

Stunning!

I ordered this gown for my senior prom and I absolutely adored it. I ordered an XS and S. The XS was tight in the top so I ended up not wearing a bra, which was fine because of the boning in the bodice. It was kind of long, but manageable with 3 inch heels. All in all, it's a great dress, I received compliments all night!

I was told I looked like a movie star!

I rented this for my boyfriend's college senior ball, and I got tons of compliments. This dress looks great in pictures, and people thought it looked super glamorous. Great for a formal event/wow factor. I'm only giving it a mediocre rating because my dress came damaged so one of my friends had to make last-minute alterations and the bottom of the dress still looked a bit tattered. Also, it was a bit too long, despite the fact that I wore very tall heels. Overall, however, I would still try this service again for the convenience and the glam dresses, and RTR's customer service was amazing after I told them about the previous state of my dress.

i wore my dress to Prom and it looked so amazing

So this dress looked awesome. it makes your waist look structured and tight (for the best). i wore large heels, cause im only 5ft. but the only problem i had was that on one of the sizes i got; the zipper got stuck and wouldnt work!! but i fit in both the Medium and the Small. thank goodness. So it all worked out.

This was my first RTR rental but definitely not the last. I couldn't believe how easy it was to just pop the dresses in the envelopes the next day and put them in a mailbox. So great!

I am 5'2" and even with 4" heels it was long. The fabric is really soft and comfortable. It was snug at my waist but otherwise fit pretty well throughout the shoulders/waist hips and I am pretty hippie. The color is deceiving. It's definitely more dark bronze/green than gold. I wore black accessories. The slit is high but not too high. I wore it to a gala event but probably would wear something a little more formal next time. The fabric reads just a tad semi-formal.

This dress was a stunning gold floor length gown. It was one shoulder with a draped skirt.

I thought this dress was gorgeous. It went perfectly with my occasion. I wore it for my Campus Queen campaign poster photos. It fit true to size. I'm short, so I expected it to be long, and it was even witht the four inch heels. I will say though, the material of the dress wasn't what I expected. It was more of a jersey matte kind of material. While the material was very casual, the overall look of the dress was breathtaking.

Comfortable Dress Perfect for a Black Tie Wedding

This dress worked perfectly for a Fall black tie wedding in NYC. Very comfortable to wear - it was easy to dance all night long in. My only note is the hem was slightly torn and worn otherwise RTR was a perfect experience! (The earrings the stylist recommended were perfect too!)

I felt like a sparkly Greek goddess in this dress!

The dress is a darker gold. Extremely comfortable to wear. The material is very light and has a cotton feel to it. It's very flattering (very forgiving in the stomach area) and the free hips made it very easy to move around in. The one-shoulder strap is beautifully designed. It's simple, but very elegant. Cons: It is a longer dress. I'm 5'3 and was in four-inch heels, and I still had to apply garment tape to the bottom of the dress in order for me to not trip over it. In the back of the dress, there is extra material above the waist. When it is zipped up, it looked like there was a pocket of air in the back. It gave the dress a bit of a saggy look. It wasn't too noticeable, since I have longer hair, but I definitely caught it right away. I'm not sure if this was because of my height, though. This dress definitely seems to be made for a taller person. Also, if you have a smaller bust (like me), be sure to wear a padded bra. Because the fitting is more constricted up top, you will need this extra padding to not appear flattened out. To sum it up: if you are tall and busty, this dress will be perfect for you. If you are shorter and smaller-busted, it will still work, but you will have to make some adjustments. All in all, it's a very nice dress.

Thanks for the tip. I was trying to figure out if it will work for a smaller bust.
