Festive and modern dress!
This uncoated metal zipper is horrible like many of this designers styles. You will need a friend! Great festive dress though, loved it and wish it were mine :)

This dress is gorgeous!!!!!
I LOVED this dress. The fabric is beautiful and the cut is amazing. The dress runs a little small due to the band around the rib cage. I almost always wear a 2, but thankfully I had ordered the size 4, also. The band around the rib cage is snug - and this is an area where I am generally pretty small. The chest fit fine in both dress sizes (I am a 32 C.) This was truly one of the most beautiful dresses I have ever worn......compliments all night long!

I was the only one with a "high-low" dress and it definitely made an impact!
This dress was perfect for my husband's more formal corporate christmas party. I actually ordered it as a second choice, and never thought I'd end up wearing it. But after my first dress showed up looking slightly different than the picture, and I tried this one on .. it was a no brainer! I typically wear between a 6 and an 8, depending on the dress. So glad I went with the 8 after reading the other reviews. I'd recommend photos straight on to really do this dress justice in capturing the moment! COmpliments GALORE in this dress, thank you RTR!

Dress up, dress down.
It was cold outside, and we were going to be walking around. I wanted to look GOOD for my birthday, but I didn't want to freeze. And with the amount of walking we were going to be doing, I wanted to wear flats. The photo I am posting sucks, but I loved the fact that this could be paired with pants and flats for a dressy but comfortable outfit.

Great dress, but not a showstopper.
Liked it, but not sure I would rent again. Much cuter from front than from back and worked well for a winter wedding.

Beautiful dress
I ordered 8 and didnt fit, would recommend to order 10 or even 12. It has a wide open skirt, but upper cut comes really small (being a smaller bra size would've helped )

3.5 stars
This dress is very well made and is a nice winter dress. I rented it for New Year's eve. The gold has many metallic tones and I actually wore silver accessories and shoes (partly because of a shoe crisis) and it worked. The fit wasn't the most flattering but it was a fun dress and good for winter because of the heavier fabric.

Great Fit & Flare
Wasn't real sure about this dress until I tried it on at the Tribeca location and fell in love. Hugged in all the right places. Made the 'girls' look fabulous! Received so many compliments NYE...many of my friends didn't recognize me (they're used to seeing me in workout cloths or my uniform). Now to sum up service - great, as usual. My reservation was for a pick-up at the Tribeca location and normally you'd receive an email once the dress arrived on-site. Well I never received the email, and since I was already in the city, I called to see if it was ready for pick up. The young lady I spoke with actually got up from her call-center desk, WALKED to the floor where dresses are rented and called me back to say the dress was ready for pickup. I know that is not normal, but I was definitely appreciative that she went out of her way to help me that day.

Pretty but not as formal as anticipated.
I loved the dress but it was not as flashy as I had been anticipating. The fabric was a little lower quality but the dress looked great and I still had an amazing time in it.

Chose this dress for a wedding in Florida!
Dress arrived in perfect condition. Material was light weight and comfortable. Fit true to size, except that it was a little snug under the bust/ around the rib cage. Otherwise, loved the dress and got lots of compliments on it!

Beautiful, unique dress, runs small
I tried this on in the Las Vegas store and then rented it for a future event. It was definitely gorgeous-- runs small in the rib cage and chest. I'm usually a 4-6 and wore the 8. It was slightly big but was better than the too tight six. Glad I tried them on first. It is a beautiful dress, but in hindsight probably not great for a wedding. It's very unique, and although I got a lot of compliments, I don't know if it was the best look for me. Super easy to rent through rent the runway! Hopefully they will open a store in AZ-- I loved being able to try it on first.

not good for girls with a larger chest unlike it says in the stylist notes
this dress is actually a metallic tread gold all over very nice. but sadly the dress would not zip up over my 32DD chests so i was not able to wear this one.

I didn't end up wearing this, as the wedding we went to ran a bit more casual than anticipated, but I was SO SAD about that fact. This dress was so fun and flattering and I just loved it!

Beautiful Dress!
I got tons of compliments wearing this dress! It was a heavier fabric than what I expected, but comfortable to wear. However, it was snug in the waist - I was glad I sized up. I loved that I could wear a regular bra with it!

Not flattering
The back of the dress reminded me of a flat peacocks tail and was unflattering for my frame. Someone taller would look better in this dress.

SO many compliments! I wore to a charity gala that I organized with a red carpet theme.
Loved the dress. Little tight fitting in the bust but still worked. The dress was not tight at all on the bottom. Everyone loved including me!

A classy dress with a unique texture. I drew compliments at a highly swanky wedding.
I'm a 34D, and feel like a bigger bust would have filled this out better. In the few photos I saw of myself in it, it was always loose at the front. If I owned it, I would have the straps taken in to cover this. The 8 almost fit, but was a little tighter around the waist than I would have liked. The 10 was also too long in the torso. Given that the front was a bit loose, it shouldn't be surprising that it didn't hit right around my hips. I have a fairly short torso, so this isn't uncommon. But for a fitted dress, it was a bit risky to rent sight unseen. The textured fabric was nice and sturdier than it looked at first. The dress definitely needed an iron to get the crinkly stuff together, but it was easy and looked great. The best part was the longer length in the back. I'd definitely look for that cut again.

Extremely small waist = unflattering to most
Although this looks stunning and dramatic on the model, the proportions are all wrong for most body types. The waist runs 1 size smaller than the rest of the dress and probably 2-3 sizes smaller than other dresses, which causes the already full skirt to flare out too much. The skirt length will be trickier for taller women - at 5'9" and wearing flats, the front was much too short to go anywhere with a breeze, and the back hit a wide spot on my legs which was not flattering. I did not wear and would not rent.

I wore this to an art gallery opening party - dress code was black, white or metallic.
Such a fun dress and I got a ton of compliments from random women! I was expecting the 8 to be too large. It fit snug around my waist but right in the chest. Very slimming. I have no butt or hips and the full skirt helped to hide that. I ironed the skirt a little to maintain the pleats, but I think I could have done better. I wore minimal jewelry because I didn't think the dress needed more. It's not exactly true gold by the way, though I did wear gold earrings and it was fine. Incidentally, my friend on the other end of this pic also rented her dress.

Lovely dress for an evening wedding
The high low style of the dress definitely makes it a winner. It's a fairly simple dress but the gold fabric and style makes it fun and elegant. I went into one of the New York locations to get the dress. The staff was friendly and helpful and I got the perfect dress within 30 minutes!

Flattering & on trend
As other reviewers mentioned, the black waistband is a bit tighter, so if you're on the fence, size up. Otherwise this dress is extremely flattering, I felt very confident all night. Definitely a great wedding guest dress because it fits a variety of formality levels. Highly recommend this piece!

Ended up not wearing this dress, but would have been great for a NYE party or cocktail event.
I rented this and another dress for a wedding but decided against it at the last minute because it didn't look as good on as I was hoping. I was concerned about the waist being too tight after reading reviews, but I had no problem with the fit there. I think this dress would have been better suited for someone with a bigger chest though, because I didn't fill it out and it didn't look as impressive on. The material was also a lot thicker and stiffer than I was expecting, making the folds more structured versus loose and flow-y like I imagined. This would be great for a NYE party with opaque black tights and heels, the weight of the dress would definitely hold up to colder weather, it just wasn't right for the wedding I attended.

Fit great. Got a little snug after eating but still loved the dress. Everyone did
I originally was going to order a 10 & 12 but the 12 was booked so i ordered an 8 & 10. Like I thought, the 8 was to small but 10 fit like a glove. I received tons compliments. It did get a little snug after eating but i overall loved it. the fabric was great.

This dress is a head turner!
I had order this dress as a back up. It was my second time ordering it. The first time they only had in a size 8 which ran a little small in the bust. The 10 fit perfect! It turns out my second choice should have been my first all along. The high low design was so flattering. Even though it was just shy of mini length the longer design in the back worked great for a formal gala. I received so many compliment. This dress is perfect if you are busty. since you can wear a bra. Plus it is forgiving and hides any imperfection in the middle section. I would definitely rent this again.

Red carpet ready!
Beautiful quality! I felt like a princess! As the other reviewers said, the waist is small and does not stretch at all. This dress is definitely made for a smaller busted woman with a narrow waistline and rib cage area. Dress arrived very quickly. Great transaction!

I wore this dress to the CMA Awards in Nashville and got so many compliments all night!
The dress fit really well! It did need to be steamed after it arrived, so I would suggest giving yourself time for that. The color is fantastic and it is the perfect amount of dressy and not too dressy. The dress is very flattering and also comfortable! I would absolutely wear it again and recommend it to anyone.

I wore this to my family Christmas Eve party. I felt the dress was not too formal and was very comfortable to wear for entire afternoon and evening. The dress was a bit tight where the black band is as well as a little tight in the bust, therefore I went up in size; I do not think I would have fit in my regular dress size. I received a lot of compliments on the dress and it was the perfect dress to wear for the holidays.

Beautiful, well made and flattering. Runs 1/2-1 size small
The texture and cut of this dress is beautiful. I am between a 14 and 16 and this 16 was TIGHT in the back and rib cage (the 18 was not available as a backup size but would have been the right size) - any smaller it would not have fit at all but the fabric is thick and well made and the color blocks are very flattering. It's very fun and unique enough to stand out. I did not have the room to wear a bra but the fabric is thick enough that you don't need to.

Think I was sent the wrong size,
so if you're larger busted, do not order this dress in the regular size. I ordered a 14w and 16w. The label said 14 and 16. Couldn't zip up the 14. The 16 was quite snug in the rib cage area so I had to suck it in all night. 14w usually works for me. If I was sent the correct size, then this dress wears snugly if you have a wider upper body. Order accordingly.

Fun and easy to dance in!
This dress was a surprise -- I picked it up in store, it was selected by the stylist for me to try on. Based on the model photo, I never would have pick this out. This dress looks MUCH better in person than on the model. The material has some metallic sparkle to it, and the high-low hem is perfectly done -- not over-the-top or overly trendy. I wore this for a bachelorette party, and it was a perfect combination of sexy and classy. The front is short enough to show a little leg, and the back is long enough that I didn't have to worry about showing anything inappropriate while dancing. When it comes to sizing, I think this runs a little small. I typically wear a 12, but wore the 14. It fit pretty well, although I looks a little snug across the chest in some photos (I am large up top and wear a 34I, for reference). The waistband hits lower than some dresses, at the natural waist just around the belly button. I would recommend definitely recommend going for it to anyone who might be on the fence about this dress!

Like a 60s Space Vixen!
Adored this dress, which came as my backup style. Was very sad not to have a second event to wear it to! It is metallic without being too shiny - super-good for showing off a small waist with curves, though it was a touch tight across my DD bosoms, but nothing too restrictive. Will definitely keep in mind for future events.
