Perfect. Period.
RTR gave me a free dress rental, so even though I had no occasion to wear it whatsoever, I had to rent it. I've been wearing it around the house, doing absolutely nothing. It's perfect. I want to be buried in this dress. The fit is divine; very clean lines and slim silhouette. Even though the fit chart says 38 is about a 0-2 in US sizing, this dress runs small. I have a hard time finding clothes that are small enough off the rack, and this fit me like a glove. I'm very petite (about 61-62 inches and 100 lbs), but this dress would look fabulous on just about any body. I would not recommend if you are busty: there is very limited room in the bust.

So classy
AMAZING cocktail style. Chic and classy cut with an easy fit! This dress has a good amount of stretch, so it hugs your body perfectly while still exuding sophistication. I probably needed one size down for a perfect fit considering how forgiving the fabric is. Definitely recommend!

Gorgeous, curve-hugging, sophisticated dress!
This dress is lovely. It is very flattering, but stays classy with its longer length and cap sleeves. It is super comfortable and the material is thick so no worries about undergarment lines, etc.

Love, love, loved this dress!!
I tried this on with the "at-home try on" service. On the hanger, this dress looks just ok. On my body, this dress looked amazing. It fit me like a glove. It was very slenderizing even though it was very fitted. It hugged all the right curves. the material is thick, the length was just below the knee and was perfect for the event I was attending (an awards dinner). the dress is sexy and understated. I didn't end up selecting this dress but I can't wait to have an event to wear this to. I may be obsessed with this designer because of how amazing this dress fit me. one con: if you are large chested, the top may be a bit tight.

What an amazing dress-the color is flattering and the cut classy while still sexy. I have already made plans to rent this again. Friends loved it and have also added it to their RTR hit list. Simply fabulous!

Wore to a fundraising event. Got many compliments. Would absolutely rent again.
Dress has a little bit of stretch which makes it comfortable. The bottom of the dress is rather narrow making it difficult to walk but not too much.

Wonderfully flattering and tasteful dress
I chose this dress after my original dress became unavailable at the last minute and the exceptional customer service people at RTR offered to overnight me any replacement I wanted, regardless of cost. I'd been eyeballing this dress the whole time and it was simply out of my budget so to say I was excited I could now have it was a bit of an understatement. I'm a true hourglass shape and usually take a 4 or a 6 - the 42 fit just fine. The color was gorgeous and the fabric has enough heft to be able to hide any little lumps or bumps you might be worried about without being too heavy. The cut was super flattering and was sexy without being revealing. I paired it with simple peep toes, understated gold jewelry, and a bold lip. I lost count of how many complements I got and felt like million bucks. I would absolutely recommend this dress and would love to wear it again myself!

Best Quality!
This dress is great! The material is thick and comfortable. The cut is very flattering. This was perfect for two work-related dinners. I say it runs large, as I had to size one size down from my usual size, but knew to do so from other reviews. I would rent this one again :)

Fit like a glove
Very form fitting elegant and classy. I've got a straight frame, and this dress was able to give me the illusion of some curves. Perfect midi length. Fabric is very forgiving, and the rich emerald green is perfect for the holidays.

SO classy. Fits like a glove. Loved it.
This dress is all about tailoring and a great fabric and just showing off the woman who is wearing it. Perfect for an hourglass shape. Extremely elegant yet the cutout helps add a little fun to it. Depending on the styling can be a great dress for a whole range of occasions. Highly recommend this one!

Sexy & Classy !
I loved how this dress hugs your curvesI The industrial zipper in the back zips up from the hem for a split and zips from the top all the way past your tushy for ease of getting in and out. One down side was the fit of the cap sleeves because of my broad shoulders, but it made me feel so yummy, it didn't matter. Especially since I got so many compliments in this dress! I would totally rent this again!

Many people commenting randomly "wow, really nice dress."
Fit was perfect, nice weight to the fabric so consistently draped well. Make sure you have a low cut bra--so it won"t peek through the cutout. I would buy this dress!

Did not wear
This style didn't work for my body style. It was very fitted across the bust. I was unable to raise my arms at all without the entire dress coming with it. It is a thick and stiff material, better for fall/winter.

Dress up or dress down.
This dress definitely runs large so be sure to size down for your backup. I loved that it had a innate sophistication and formality so that I was able to bring a few jewelry and shoe options for a wedding without a specified dress code and gauge some of the other guests in the lobby of the hotel for how I wanted to wear it. The 44 I received had a rather sticky zipper that I noticed while taking it off the hanger to try on., but I just made sure not to use it again before I needed it! The dress is a nice thickness, so bumps and bulges aren't really an issue, but spanx help provide an extra smooth line. Unfortunately, I didn't pose for any pictures, but I will say that the dress looks very nice on body with some curves and the seaming is very flattering. My waist looked tiny and my shoulders and hips in great, strong balance.

Flawless!
This dress fits like a glove! I love it. The fabric is very dense so it holds you in (no spanx needed)! Totally classy. Would rent it again. Perfect price. Bonus in the back- the zipper goes up from the bottom, so you can make the rear slit as high or low as you want.

Gorgeous dress! loved it
Classy dress. I loved the color. The fabric was nice and thick and the dress was in great condition. I am usually a EU size 40 but this dress ran too big all over. I used the backup Size 38 which was a little too snug but it worked.

A great sophisticated dress... you can't go wrong. This dress will make you look and feel amazing.
This dress is true to size for me. I generally wear a size 0 to 2 in dress and am 5'4", 32C with 26" waist. I got tons of compliments and felt very classy in this dress. The cleavage is amazing but subtle in the cutout on top. I wore LAMB 4" stillehotte sandals with snakeskin and black... it made the dress a bit younger and sexy. Hair up with chandler earrings. The skirt is extremely narrow and restrictive so you need to take saintly steps and walk up and downs stairs with caution.

Classy with a sexy twist!
Loved the color and the cutout top--especially because of my large chest, it's good to have some kind of an opening with a high neckline. It was kind of loose around my middle and hips (a 6 would have been too small for my chest though!). Overall it was a cute dress, but personally, I felt it was somewhat too formal for the wedding I attended (don't have a great full-length photo for this yet, sorry!)

Stunning Dress
This dress is amazing. Its sexy in all the right places, while also being comfortable. I was able to wear a regular bra, as well, which was a huge plus. I got many compliments from both men and women and I felt extremely special at an event I needed to be at. I am thinking about renting it again for a wedding I will be attending in August.

Beautiful and comfortable. I love Narciso Rodriguez dresses!
It ran a bit larger-- I had space in the waist and I don't have a tiny waist. But I'm more of a straight shape. This seems like it would work for many body types.

Beautiful color, slightly longer than expected
This dress fit me well and was very flattering overall. I loved the cut out detail in the front! My only complaint was that the dress hit me mid-shin rather than below the knee as shown on the model (and I'm not overly short), so it was a bit stumpyfing. The zipper in the back was a bit irritating as well. Besides that, a great dress, good for a work event where the dress is more modest!

The sense of Anticipation, the hot pink surprise in the box, the way the dress fit and fabric felt.

Classy
I am a little confused about the advice recommending going one size down for back-up. The dress hugs every part of your body, so, for a more comfortable fit, I would recommend ordering UP, not down. That said, this was the perfect dress for a formal affair. Classy, age-appropriate, unique!

I. Love. This. Dress.
This ended up being my back up to the back up dress...but by far my favorite RTR to date. The original dress I ordered didn't fit & was slightly damaged, and the backup dress was way too short, so RTR's amazing customer service sent me this one. It's way out of any price range I'd ever considered for a rental, but I absolutely loved it, and will be buying it when RTR is ready to sell. It was perfect for my office Christmas party this year...a little more substantial fabric, so I was warm enough, festive green color, and special without being inappropriate. I'm used to other women gushing, so that happening all night was no surprise, but I received multiple VERY appreciative compliments from the men all night as well. As far as the fit... I'm a little taller, so sometimes it's difficult to find dresses in a decent length, but this one was perfect. I guess you could say the fit is a little bit loose, but it's so well tailored that I thought it was perfect. Such a fun change not to have to tug, yank, and smooth all night long! I was able to wear a normal bra, which is always a plus. The fabric was heavier, with a very pleasant give to it - since it was not skin tight, I did not see any need for Spanx or shapewear - nothing negative showed. I loved that this dress was still flattering even though I have a smaller bust...I'm barely a B, but I thought this dress looked amazing. The great thing about this dress is that I believe it would compliment a wide range of bust sizes...there was plenty room for more, but it did not gape or look too big on me. Thanks RTR!! Always a great experience.

This backup dress was the most amazing thing I've ever worn!!
The 38 and 40 both fit perfectly, but the 38 (a bit more snug) gave me the curves I always wanted. The material is thick, lined, and smooths nicely. The cutout is tasteful (but I'm fairly small- chested, so that may not ring true for everyone). Best comment of the night was that I looked like a sexy super hero. I would give my left kidney to own this dress!

Classic with a modern twist!
I loved this dress! It fit like a glove - true to size. The fabric is high quality and holds you in. I went with gold shoes and purse and some large earrings. I would definitely recommend this dress for all you fellow curvy & tallish ladies! It's very flattering.
