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!

Great ladylike dress

Great dress. Perfect length for a tall, conservative girl. I got the 8 and it was a little loose, but nice fit. Usually (because I'm so tall) the butt area hits my lower back in a weird bulge but this one was great. Thanks, rtr!

Great conservative dress

Rented this an engagement party. Loved this dress. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because I wish it had a little bit more stretch!

Didn't end up wearing, but what a gorgeous dress!

The original dress I rented ended up not being available so with their excellent customer service policy, RTR sent me multiple backups at any price at no additional cost. This dress was 1 I selected. I usually wear a size 10 but only the 8 was available and it fit perfectly! The fabric is pretty thick so was not appropriate for the Key West wedding I was attending; however, given a fall/winter wedding/event I would absolutely rent this again!

Great, well made dress!

The material is nice and heavy, stretches well. Rented for a holiday party and the green is a true dark green in person (photographed darker here).

Class!

I am a true size 10 but I wanted to wear the stress so bad I got the eight and based on the reviews it said to size down and I'm very glad I did! I have full hips and this dress fit perfect. So I would size down. There is stretch in the fabric but it doesn't cling too much. it's a beautiful dress perfect for a event that maybe you don't want to look too sexy but high class! Loved it.

Gorgeous dress, amazing fit

I rented this for an awards dinner and absolutely loved it! It was appropriate for a work function but still a bit sexy. The fabric has a bit of stretch and the color is a deep dark green. It fit my hips and butt perfectly, difficult sometimes with fitted dresses because I'm a pear. Overall, I wish I could own this, it is awesome!

Gorgeous color and perfect fit

The deep forest green color of this dress is to die for! The neckline was beautiful and very flattering (and not too revealing - which can sometimes be difficult with a large chest) and I didn't even have to wear a bra. The material was thick enough to smooth out any bumps on its own. Great dress and perfect for so many occasions. Truly considering buying this one, and if it ever goes on sale, I'm all over it!

This is one of my favorite RTR dresses. It's so classy. I wish I could keep it. Fun fact, it didn't key out on the green screen.

Beautiful dress for a fancy occasion

This dress was beautiful and made me feel like the best dressed person at the fancy restaurant my husband and I went to for our date night. The only issue is that even the size 38 was still a bit large in the bust area but that didn't bother me too much. I'll definitely be exploring more of Narciso's dresses!

The dress is a heavy fabric with no stretch and it runs a little small. If I had sized up maybe it would have worked

Hands down, My Favorite Rental

LOVE this dress so much I just might buy it. I am 165, 5'3 and the 46 was a perfect fit. My favorite feature is the back has a zipper at the top and one at the bottom so you can adjust the slit. It's sexy but not too sexy to wear to work and looks amazing on camera.

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 :)

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!

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.

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!)

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.

Nice Dress

That's really all I have to say. The design is great and material was wonderful but I was underwhelmed. I didn't see the notes that it runs large so I ran into the same issue. It looks way better on the RTR model.

Great dress!

I am pretty short (5'2") so I thought the dress would hit me somewhere in the calf area because the model is much taller and it hits below her knee. It ended up hitting me in exactly the same spot as the model, not sure how that happened! The cutout adds interest, but I would definitely recommend going down a size - there is a lot of stretch and it would have been sexier if I'd sized down (the shoulders were a bit loose).

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.

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.

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.

I wore this dress to a local fashion event and felt like one of the models...

With the help of Spanx of course! The material is on the thicker side and is perfect for Fall, plus it holds you in. I loved the curves the dress helped create. The length is very elegant hits about mid calf I'm 5' 4.5" (yes, the .5 makes a difference). I highly recommend this dress, the color is GORGEOUS!

LOVE this dress

This dress is really amazing! The fabric is heavy enough to offset the figure-conscious cut (making Spanx optional), and the cutout is intriguing without being too revealing. AND the dress is comfortable. I got tons of compliments all night.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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!
