The fabric has gold thread, very unique and just the right amount of feminine

What size did you wear? You look close to my size, and I can't figure out what size would be best based on other reviews...

Fail. Too sparkly for work

I was really excited when a Missoni dress finally became available. I normally wear a 4 but I took a 42/6. It was way more sparkly than I was expecting. Some of the reviews say people pulled it off with a blazer, but that didn't work for me. I was disappointed with the way the material hung. It seemed to bunch a little at the hem and I think some of the seems are coming loose from wear.

Just ok

This dress is nice, I got compliments at work, but didn't seem special to me. I wore to work then a work dinner; functional for that setting but there are enough awesome pieces on RTR I won't be renting this again.

Eye-catching

Even with the gold threads throughout this has an easy fit and is casual enough for work wear. My only complaint is that the lining seems to ride up a lot, at least on me. I like it better with a belt.

Very pretty but slip didn’t stay put

Fabric has metallic threads so might be a little itchy for some. What bothered me is that the slip either decided to show itself or ride up, and I had to fuss with it too much. Didn’t wear.

Thin fabric, snug fit

I'm new to RTR so maybe I'm having trouble getting used to sizing. The dress is cool for sure - the fabric is thin but feels fall-like especially with the gold flecks. Would have worn if I was a bit slimmer through the middle to work dinner.

I couldn't wear it.

The fit was tight and short

Very stylish

I got this dress to wear to a larger work meeting with several board members. It was stylish and seasonally appropriate. It was shinier than I had anticipated, which I didn't love, given it was being worn for work, but it wasn't so problematic that I couldn't wear it. Just know that there are many very metallic, shiny threads throughout the fabrics. It's not a bad thing at all, just something to be aware of when deciding the type of event you would wear this dress to. Figure flattering and stylish overall!

Subtle shimmer, easy transition from work to play

This is a very flattering fitted sheath, with plenty of hip room. Ladies with cup sizes over a C may find that it will tug a bit on the top part of the dress. Beautiful color patch work and detailing. A small part of the fabric seemed a little worn, but not noticeable otherwise.

The color was fantastic!!! The metallic looked great against my skin tone (dark brown)

The fit was amazing! I wore it with leather leggings and a silk peplum jacket and booties.

I wore this to work.

The dress was comfortable and fit true to size. I could see this more as a holiday dress but I liked how light the material was. The slip did tend to stick out at times, but I couldn't tell if that was intentional or not.

Only work appropriate with a blazer

I loved this dress. It was light and comfortable! Quite a bit of sparkle and bling, not exactly work appropriate but I covered with a blazer and pulled it off. Got a lot of compliments.

Sexy/classy, worked for work event

I wore this dress at my book launch event and it was perfect -- I've never gotten so many compliments. It's form-fitting enough to be flattering, and the metallic sparkles make it super festive, but the neckline / hem are conservative enough that it's fine for a professional setting. Soft fabric with a lot of give made it super comfortable. Loved it!

I rented this item to wear to work.

The fit was true to size but the dress seems very worn. I did not wear it.

Fit great

The dress fit well, and the fabric has some nice stretch. I wore this for work, and it hit about 4" above my knee, just on the edge of too short. The fabric is also much more sparkly than it shows in the photos.
