Simply Beautiful :)
I absolutely loved this dress! <3 It is simple yet elegant and I received many compliments on it :) Considering it is the month of November (getting closer to the holidays) when sequined and satin dresses are most popular, this dress still managed to stand out; I didn't think that would be the case given it's soft color and simple features but I was very wrong. There's a little opening on the back which I thought was perfect (not too revealing), especially if you don't want want to show much skin but still want a little sexy to your style. I am 5'4" and the dress ended right at my ankles (without heels on) - first long dress ever that was the perfect length for me so I was extremely happy about that. I'm normally a size 0-2 in dresses and the only size left was a 0R (with no other sizes left) so I was worried that it would be a bit tight but it was the perfect fit! I was a bit nervous ordering this dress since I didn't see any other reviews on it but I'm glad that I did and happy to be one of the first reviewers for this dress, especially sinceI have nothing but great things to say about it. This was my second time renting from RTR and once again, I was satisfied with my order. Looking forward to future orders! :) P.S.: If you're looking for a dress for the holidays I highly suggest that you place an order ASAP...I almost wasn't able to get this one (there were only two sizes left) and many of the pretty, shimmery holiday dresses were are already booked :P

Was unable to wear and made me feel older than I actually am.
The gown was small, and I felt it was just too old looking for me.

Sadly didn't fit...
I fell in love with this dress the minute I saw it online! A RTR stylist informed me that this designer tends to run small so ordered the 2 and 4 instead of my regular 0 . I guess it is actually more "true-to-size" because it was so large around the shoulders and back that I was unable to wear it. I was really disappointed my dream dress didn't work out but hopefully this information helps someone else when they order this dress. As for how the dress looked in person, it was stunning. It felt so smooth and silky on my body when I put it on. The lace detail was beautiful as well. It is a little more on the beige side rather than a gold tone.

Beyond Gorgeous Dress!
This dress was BEAUTIFUL. I ordered a size 2R & 4R, I could have wore either one, in fact, I would have preferred the 2 but there was extra fabric that layed funny in the lower stomach area - so luckily the 4 fit as well. You can NOT wear a bra with this. Also, if you are my height you will need to wear flats, as the dress didn't even hit the floor for me. So 5'6" or taller I'd suggest not ordering, since they do not have any longs (as of now at least). Take those suggestions into consideration - but know that you will NOT be disappointed, it's absolutely stunning.

It is so beautiful on you! I would want to wear this to a black tie wedding on valentines day. Does it look too bridal??? That's my main concern.
TrishaDecember 11, 2014
Because it's not white, I think you'd be totally fine wearing it to a wedding. It's a stunning dress. However, if the bride is wearing champagne, then I'd consider not wearing it.

I returned it without wearing. Material is darker and size 2 looked worn out
I wanted this dress for my civil wedding, but I ended up returning it the same day. Reason why is because I ordered size 2R and 4R (as free backup). Size 2 would be good fit, but it looked worn out and material lost shine (it looked like somebody sanded it) and also it was short for my height (5.6'') and I would heave to wear flats to make it look ok but that wasn't an option for me. Size 4 looked in better condition but much bigger (upper part could fit C cups) and the same regular length which again, didn't worked out for me. So be aware that color is darker than picture shows (looks like light brown, not ivory or very light brown), and that sizes are somewhat true to size (actually I dare to say that runs large, because I think 0L would be my perfect fit, and I wear B cups).

Incredible detail
This dress was gorgeous. I used it for a wedding and it was perfect. I'm on the shorter side but with heels the length was spot on. Considering the open back I wore a stick on bra and had no problems with it. The only minor issue I had was that the pelvic area had more fabric that seemed to bulge a bit, but not a huge issue. Overall a gorgeous elegant dress.

I wore this to a holiday ball with a 1920's theme.
I felt absolutely gorgeous in this dress. It was a great fit, double-lined, and a lovely taupe color. One caveat? I'm 5'2", and it was still a bit long for me, even in heels.

Fits weird, tried 0R on and was loose in the waist and bust area was also a little on the short side for length, i just dont think this dress is made for short curvy girls

The dress was beautiful, though it was a little big in the shoulder area.
This was a last minute dress, due to the other two dresses I had ordered, one dress didn't look good on me and the other didn't fit. The customer service person I spoke to tried to find a dress for me even though there weren't many dresses left for over night shipping. The dress fit but I felt like it was a big in the chest area with the lace overlay. I did receive many compliments with this dress. This was the 2nd time I have rented a dress and I can't wait to rent another one.

A good friend was getting married!
I feel like the top of this dress was fitted for a linebacker. The fabric that clasped at the back was so loose that I pinned back a good two inches of it. It was also too loose in the torso area. Despite this, I wore three-inch heels and the length was honestly perfect. The lace is stunning and just ,my style!

Beautiful but not forgiving
This dress has zero stress. I am a curvy girl and even though this was my first choice and I ordered my size and a size up I opted for my back up dress because it had more give in the hips. I wouldn't recommend this for my fellow pear-shaped or even hour glass women unless you want to go up a size.

Sophisticated and elegant- old school glamour
I wore this for the Museum of Art's Winter Bash. The attire was "cruise formal" - but with a vintage, 20's vibe (think Titanic, but with a happier ending). I wanted a dress that suited the theme but wasn't costume-y, something that made me feel sexy, but wasn't too "naked" (it was 4 degrees outside). Both the 4 and the 6 fit- I opted for the 6 because the length was better with heels and the 4 gathered oddly around the bust (esp. w/out a bra). This is a beautiful dress- the cut, the details, the fabric. Loved it, and had a lot of comments on it.

Surprise engagement party with an amazing dress!
Dress fits true to size, except for the sleeves -- they were slightly large. Otherwise the dress is more of a tan color, lace throughout, great fit, and gorgeous. I'm very happy this was my engagement dress :)

Perfect for my second wedding
I would highly recommend this dress although the one I was sent appeared to have a lot of miles on it. It was true to size and I'm a curvy pear so the 12 was pretty roomy at the top and snug on the bottom. The 14 completely swallowed my upper half although the bottom fit wasn't quite as tight but almost just as. The sleeves were very roomy and I loved the back cutout too. I got lots of compliments and felt beautiful. The slip had no stretch so if you're very curvy beware.

A Not-So-Bridesmaid Dress
The dress is gorgeous and I have never received so many compliments in my life! The dress hugs in all of the right places. I am 5'1" and wore 4 inch heels and the length was perfect. (For dancing, I wore 2.5 inch heels and it still worked as well.. just fit a tad longer). The only negative is that it is large in the breast and back area. I had to buy sticky cups from Nordstrom to fill out the top, and had to pin the back to make it fit tighter. Otherwise, it fit great!! It worked perfect as a bridesmaid dress!

I am 5'2" and about 140 and curvy. I'm also medium skin tone. This dress was a complete bust.
The color, cut and regular length of this dress was all wrong for my body type, it is also quite matronly. The picture makes it look rather elegant but in person my dress looked dingy and retired. I love rent the runway but this dress was a tad depressing. I think a brand spanking new dress on the right lean and tall shape, creamy skin tone and subtle demeanor would suit this dress. It did not work for me. And, it's not really gold to my eye either. Misleading name...

Love that I can rent a new gorgeous dress for every event!
Felt beautiful in this gorgeous dress outfitted by the perfectly selected surprise earrings! Size runs small by 1 size; and pretty snug in the rub area. Overall, I love the convenience of renting 2 sizes and selecting one new dress for every special occasion. Customer service is top notch! Can't wait to rent my next dress. Thank you RTR!

Happy with the entire process.
I'm 5'11", between 140-145 lbs and a B cup. I was pleasantly surprised the gown was long enough (someone who said she was 5'8" and claimed to have ordered this in an 8L said it was just long enough for her with flats so I was very worried), but should have put some thought into what kind of bra would work with the diamond cut out in the back. In the end I wore a pair of gel breast pads and didn't fill the bust of the dress well. I probably should have ordered the 6L as my second size for a better bust match (the 10L would have been much too big all around). The dress was in good condition and was clean, but buyer beware of things that can get hooked into the lace, including the heels of your shoes and the clasps on the dress before you put it on. Sorry, still waiting for friends to share photos!

Loved the dress
Loved the dress and got a lot of compliments on it. Wore the 8R instead of the 6R because of it being too tight around my waist. However, the 8R was a little large around the bust. But it worked out (with a few safety pins) and looked beautiful.

EXCHANGED IT
Beautiful dress that I ordered for my daughter's prom. When we received it the dress was WAYYYYYY darker than it appears on the pictures. Its a dark taupe, almost grey, and the dark color really aged her, something more appropriate for me. So I exchanged it for another dress.

Really liked this dress! It was classy, formal and fit well.
I ended up wearing the 0R. We wore boots with our dresses which worked out great because it would have been too short with high heels. Fit great in the torso but was a little tight on the shoulders. You can't wear a bra so it was a little loose in the chest. Received lots of compliments on the dress. Overall a great dress for the wedding!

Elegant, Comfortable, and Classy
This was a backup dress sent when my 2nd size of another dress wasn't ready to ship. I'm SO glad how that little crisis worked out because this is the dress I chose to wear to a black-tie optional gala in GA. The sizing is typical for evening gowns - a 12 fit my size 10 perfectly but I must mention the shoulders / sleeves of this dress - they're quite roomy, as another said "fit for a linebacker" - NOT a deal breaker, though; if it were cut smaller I don't know that I'd have been able to reach for my glass of wine :) I wore a 3" heel with the dress and it was the perfect length.

I wore this beautiful dress to my senior prom. I got many compliments!
The dress fits well, but it is a little long at the bottom. I am 5'5 and wore 4-5 inch heels and it was still long. Also right under my stomach the fabric bunched under the lace top which looked a little weird but it wasn't very noticeable. I wear and A cup so the top was a little loose but still pretty fitted. Overall the dress was perfect for what I needed it for! It looked great with red - red lips, nails & flowers!

I got so many compliments on this dress, it fits true to siz.
The fit was great, I am a 36C and didn't have to wear a bra.. The arms are a little on the "stretched side" so the arm holes were a little baggy, but was okay when I wanted to move around on the dance floor. I got so many compliments it turned out really well.

I wore this lovely dress to a benefit ball. Everyone raved about this dress!
I am a pear shape, the dress fit perfectly for the most part, the top a tad bit bigger than I would have liked, but overall was great! I am 5'10 and the size 10L was the perfect length with 3 inch heels.

Rented this as a maid-of-honor dress
I ended up sizing down due to the fit up top. The bust was a bit roomy and the back of the dress can be slightly loose so you may want to use some pins/two sided tape. The hips were a bit tight, but when choosing between a baggy top and tight hips, the choice was easy. If you are a C cup or smaller, I'd definitely size down for the backup.

Wore for a good friend's black tie optional wedding - it was perfect!
Fits true to size. Sleeves/arms a little big, but not to the point where it looks strange. I wore it with a strapless bra, and just had to make sure the bra was pulled down in the back to not show in the open back. More of a taupe color than gold. Incredibly comfortable while still being formal. I highly recommend the dress and may rent it again!

Over 50 bride
The dress was comfortable and romantic. I wore this for my informal October evening wedding. The dress is two layers with a medium weight lace on top. The open back was very pretty but you will need a backless bra for support if you are a larger cup. It was perfect for an over 50 bride - not too young - and not too matronly.

Absolutely loved wearing this timeless, elegant dress to my friend's classy New England wedding.
The fit was almost perfect aside from slightly tight on my chest (I am a 34DD), but got away with the fit by not wearing a bra, which ended up working out nicely with the cutout back accent to this classic dress. Received an overwhelming amount of compliments on this selection, and would highly recommend it to anyone attending an elegant affair!

Pros: it was drop-dead stunning without a doubt. a show stopper in a subtle way. Truly elegant. Cons: It was a little bit long for my height. I definitely could not have worn it without high heels.

Fit like a glove- so many compliments
Had a RTR emergency when my original dresses didn't fit. The stylist sent me this style in long and I wasn't too excited about it. It was stunning! Received so many compliments on how gorgeous it was. Definitely wore 6 inch heels with it which isn't a problem for me but be cautious that the regular is too short to wear heels and the long is definitely long! Would rent again for sure!
