Nice material

I received this dress brand new with tags and couldn't wait to wear it. The material and pattern was so beautiful, but it didn't fit. It hugged me in places and made me look like boxy and unflattering.

Tahoe Wedding

I usually wear a 6 or 8 but the dresses I pulled in a 6 would not zip up. I grabbed this one from RTR SF in Nieman Marcus. The straps were in disarray when I received it. Thin straps supporting a heavily embroidered dress. I will say this was perfect for keeping things contained and is lined beautifully so you can keep your silhouette after dinner. I paired this with a black pashmina and the vibrant colors really popped. I received so many compliments on this dress.

Beautiful, unique, and classy dress!

Loved the detailing, got a lot of compliments, well made, and unique coloring. I tried it on at a RTR store so no surprises in fit. I'm usually a 6-8 in dresses and the 8 fit me perfectly, but the 6 was not too much smaller. The length is technically tea length but was longer on me since I'm 5'3", but I thought it still looked great and worked well with heels. I thought the dress was super flattering and just the right amount of form fitting. The detailing is GORGEOUS and super intricate, though it does make the dress a bit heavy. I wore it to a black tie optional and dressed it up with accessories, but you could definitely dress it down for a more casual event. Would highly recommend!

Beautiful embroidery

Really pretty dress, vibrant color, intricate embroidery. Perfect tea length on me (I'm 5'11). Waist was perfect, roomy in the bust though- I didn't quite fill it out. I ended up not wearing it because the dominant orange and yellow colors weren't great with my coloring and it is quite heavy- not what I was looking for in a summer wedding guest dress. Would be perfection in the fall with a light wrap!

Pretty but heavy

Gorgeous detailing, but the straps are thin relative to fabric weight so they dig in a bit. Not bra needed.

So. Many. Compliments. GREAT DRESS!

Okay, the dress looks pretty in the photos, but the real wow moment is when you see the embroidery. It's so beautiful and bright! Very well made dress and the fabric is heavy enough keep the silhouette. I got compliments from so many people on this dress. Great choice!

Great late summer fancy-but-not-OTT dress

First, the straps, while very skinny, are adjustable-- anyone short-waisted like me would appreciate that. It's beautifully made and the cut is flattering. The dress I received looked a little older-- scruffy bits in the embroidery, etc.-- but from a distance it was fine. No need for a bra.

Amazing detail and SO comfortable

This dress is so beautiful and fun! I got so many compliments! The dress is extremely detailed- the stitched flowers added another level to the look. The dress is slightly heavy but I did not feel like it weighed me down. The fit is very flattering. Worn to a late September wedding.

Beautiful colors, good quality fabric

I rented this for a late October wedding, thinking the colors were reminiscent of fall trees. However, when I tried it on, my boyfriend said "oooh, tropical," so back it goes. That said, the fabric was a beautiful texture and weight, and the designs are embroidered with a thick thread so it really feels expensive. I wish I had gotten this for an Indian wedding I attended a few weeks ago - it would have been perfect

RTR Team Review

I love this dress for a fall wedding. I actually wore it to an Indian wedding where a lot of other guests wore saris, and felt like it fit right in! It fits true to size, but has no stretch. I'm 5'2" and it came to just an inch or so above the ground on me- a slightly awkward length but not enough that it looked bad. I have a narrow rib cage so it was a little loose on me standing. Though I ended up being glad about that after dinner. As many other reviewers have noted, you don't need a bra because the fabric is thick and somewhat structured. I was worried the skinny straps would dig into my shoulders but it wasn't a problem.

Obsessed!

When I first placed my order I had my sights set on this dress but it wasn't available in my size for the dates I needed. The dress I picked after came damaged in both sizes and they sent me a backup that I didn't choose. Customer service was extremely helpful in resolving the issue and to my surprise and excitement this dress was available in my size. They overnighted it to me and it got to me in time for my 3:00 wedding. Got SO many compliments on it! The embroidery is absolutely stunning and the dress was heavy enough to keep me warm at an October wedding on the water. The only thing I was nervous about was the straps being too thin to support the weight of the dress but it was totally fine. I didn't want to send the dress back I loved it so much!

The dress was beautiful, absolutely gorgeous, but there were issues with the zipper. I had a little difficulty getting the zipper up, not much. Then it would never come down pass a certain point. I spent 30 minutes trying and thought I was going to have to live in the dress. I had to take it off over my head. Even as my mom was helping me though, she commented on how good it looked.

Retro Dress for Fall Wedding

Wore this dress for a wedding that requested colorful attire. Most of the night I kept my coat on (outdoors) which hid that it was a bit snug around my rib cage, and I am a true 10. Otherwise beautiful - would rent again!

Modern but just what your 5 year old self dreamed of

I loved this dress! No need for a bra, or even heels (5'4", 130 and was 2R). It was totally stunning and silky and nice against the skin. Ended up being warm on a cool night and cool during a wedding sitting right in the sun, because the fabric is thick but the spaghetti straps give you room to breathe. Wore it with really tremendous huge gold earrings and matched with the fall leaves :)

Head turner

Wore this to a Cotillion presentation. This is a thick fabric so it's very flattering to your back. However, it doesn't give and I should have ordered one size up for my backup. I was able to dance in this. The ultimate compliment was that a college guy sent my daughter a Snapchat of me and said "Your mom looks pretty"! I stood out in a sea of moms in black gowns. Note that I'm close to 5'7' and it went to the top of my heel NOT tea length but more formal.

Wore this to an awards gala. Loved that it has adjustable straps since I'm short. Dress was more ankle length in my 5'3" frame. Very comfortable and flattering.

Beautiful pattern dress

Dress fell around my ankle so I was able to wear heels or shoes. Loved the pattern and feel. I do wish the waist had been a tad tighter to give the waist a more sinched look but that's just me. The pattern is lovely in person but watch out for loose threads on the embroidery.

Not for me !

The embroidery is gorgeous, but the fit was kind of odd. The chest was a little too big and awkward fitting, while the waist was really form fitting. Really wanted to love this dress, but it just didn't work for me!

Great dress to dance and eat in. Kinda looks like a curtain though.

This cut is flattering (natural waist/A line cut) so it was a flattering dress to wear to a gala where I'd be sitting, eating and dancing. And it runs big (size down!). But it is a very thick material, it's much longer than it looks on the model (it hit at my ankles). Overall, it looks and feels like you're wearing a curtain. Not my favorite rental.

So much love and dancing at a wedding of two dear friends!

The 2 fit better than the 4. Was sturdy but thicker than anticipated. Stood out from the crowd int he best way! However, the zipper broke right as I arrived at the venue and as I had no time to run home and change before this wedding started, I had to safety pin myself into the dress. Even with this issue, the dress held up just fine and I was able to dance the night away while celebrating the marriage of good friends!

The fabric of this dress is exceptional. Very special.

While the dress is intended to be midi length, it was full length on me. It still looked beautiful, but is was just a little longer than I thought it would be.

Stunning embroidery

Pros = Gorgeous embroidery, unique, atypical color scheme, flattering Cons = A little heavy due to the embroidery, but not uncomfortable I LOVE this dress! The embroidery detail is incredible. Wear black sandals for an eye-catching look. I would not recommend this dress in hot weather, however it is wonderful for spring, fall and winter when paired with a black cardigan. I am 5'3" on a good day and it is worn as a maxi, however note for my taller ladies, it is designed to be a midi dress. Have fun!

Really beautiful well made dress. Embroidery gives weight to this dress, but it works!

Do not need to wear bra. Fitted in waist with slight a-line skirt. Long on me but would be midi on someone 5'8" or taller. I really loved the colors of this dress and I received my size with tags still on so it was in perfect condition.

This dress is unique and a head turner. I got LOTS of compliments!

The colors and fabric of this dress are beautiful. Since the entire outer layer is embroidered, the dress is a bit heavy to wear but not so much that it's pulling on the straps. There is a black slip liner, which added to the embroidered outer layer might make it hot to wear in a really warm climate. This dress is comfortable to wear, easy to dance and move around in, and very elegant.
