This dress is fierce in person!! Beautiful variegated colors. I wore this to a wedding with black heels and minimal jerwerly, let the dress do the talking! Runs very tight thru the hip area!!! I always wear a size 0, good thing I order the free backup size...I wore the size 2 instead because it was more comfortable sitting. I would highly recommend this dress if you want to impress!

There is glittery threading woven in through out and it looks great in pictures! The only downside is it is not stretchy at all! Order a size up if you have larger hips.

I wore this for a summer wedding. I received a lot of compliments. The fabric feel like linen and the shiny part is threading woven into the dress. The only problem I had was that it was narrow in the hips and it had no stretch. I loved the color!

I was very pleased with this dress. It paired great with accessories and a blazer that I already owned.

This dress was amazing.. I suggest going a size up. I am 5'8", 130lbs, and I ordered the size 4, which I found to be too tight. Nonetheless, I looked great in it, and received major compliments. I paired it with a black blazer, and some structured black heels, to keep up with the futuristic edge look of the dress. Minimal jewelry. My first Proenza dress and I would DEFINITELY go back for another..

This dress didn't work for me.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I ordered my usual size and the size up based on the reviews that the dress is slim, both were much much too tight. I could barely get the larger size over my hips which is unusual as I am very petite. The stylists were helpful in getting me something else in time for my event, though.

I typically wear a 2 or 4 and the 4 fit perfectly. I thought the material was great for an outdoor wedding since it was a bit heavier weight. The material is beautiful with the mix of colors and metallic sheen. It's a really sexy dress without being over the top. I loved it!

I am a size 0/2 but the woman said to order a 2 because it runs a little small. However, I am a size D chest and there was noooo room for them whatsoever. There is not much give. However, needing to breathe was unnecessary because I looked fabulous.

fabric was almost tweed, which was very deceiving from the picture. it also ran very large, and hit my leg almost down to my knee--and I'm not a short girl! I got a size 4, but I should have gotten a 2 or even 0! The dress was not at all what I thought it would be, in a bad way.

Super fun sorority party, with a very fun dress!

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I received a size 0 and a size 4, unfortunately the zipper of the 4 was broken, so I had to go with the 0. It was SUPER tight, and the material does not have a lot of give. It was perfectly comfortable while standing and dancing, but very short while sitting. I would've definitely preferred a size 2, so make sure to get your real size! I wore it with nude strappy heels to play off of the blush color in the fabric, and a simple gold bracelet and a bag with gold hardware! I did get a ton of compliments on it, and I loved how much personality the dress had!

I wore this dress to my prom. It was beautiful -- the fabric is stunning up close, and it translates really well in photos. The only problem I had with it was that the fabric is a bit thick. As previous reviewers have noted, the dress fits tight in the hips, but it was flattering. I would order a size larger than you normally get -- I'm a 0 and wore a 2, which fit perfectly except for the stomach. It was loose around my stomach, though, and occasionally bunched up in pictures. No problems with it riding up though. Very comfortable too. In general, I LOVED this dress. It was interesting without being out-there, and was exactly what I wanted. I was so, so happy with it, and would absolutely recommend it.

This is a unique and beautiful dress, but did not fit me right. It scrunched and clumped around the waist and was hard to get into. I didn't really like the fabric. There was some confusion in the delivery to the hotel so I ended up wearing one of my own dresses to the birthday party I was going to.

The fabric of this dress makes it more of a fall or winter dress in my opinion.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
The dress was very tight around the hips and thighs and had no stretch. I knew it likely wouldn't work but gave it a shot anyway. Even if the dress had fit, I probably wouldn't have worn it in the middle of June in 100 degree heat as the fabric seems much better suited for cooler weather!

Fun party dress

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress to my 10 Year High School Reunion - I obviously wanted to stand out from the crowd (LBDs everywhere) and look great. This dress was definitely fun (love the color and cutouts) but it fits a little weird. I usually wear a 4 or 6 in dresses, but I almost wish I had gotten an 8. The hips were super tight, but the top (including the black cinched in section) was pretty baggy. I don't have huge boobs, maybe if I did this would fit better. The dress kept shifting around my hips and the side seam would end up in front, so I was constantly adjusting all night. I'm glad I wore it but it's by no means my favorite rental.

Not my favorite RTR dress.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Date
I ordered a 6 and an 8. The 6 ran rib-crushingly small in the waist, and while the 8 was comfy in the waist, there was a ton of extra fabric in the belly area, which was unflattering. So, comfort, or flattering??? I went flattering, and took off the dress the moment dinner was over... The dress wasn't nearly as shimmery in the evening light, and the length was a bit matronly on my shorter 5'4" frame. I felt more like a politician's wife than a not date : ( I still love you though, RTR!

This was my back up dress for a wedding, and while I wasn't crazy about it, I got a ton of compliments. It grows on you. Beautiful colors, the material was a bit odd but thick so it held everything in real well. I would recommend ordering a size up if you're a size betweener.

Pretty and surprisingly comfortable

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented this dress as an option for New Year's Eve, but I ended up choosing to wear another dress. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the fabric of this dress, both the color and texture were better than I had predicted. It wasn't as dressy looking as I was hoping for though, and I had read reviews saying to size up, so I ordered the 10 when I am usually an 8, and I wish I had just ordered an 8 because the 10 gave my body no shape. In the picture I am holding the extra fabric in the back to make it look more flattering. This would be a nice dress for a work function, maybe I'll find an occasion to order it again, next time in size 8.

Its a beautiful woven fabric, but does not give and runs a little small. It sat very tight at the hip, and sadly the next size up was not available. It was not the most comfortable dress I have worn, but it was worth it!

I ordered this dress as my second style for a November wedding. While I ended up wearing an Herve Leger dress to the event, this dress was so great! I wish I would have had two weddings to wear it to! The cut-outs are chic but nothing too flashy. The fabric is sort of reminiscent to a tweed so it's a tad heavier than some other fabrics but it's not too short and it fit great!

This dress is very pretty but the material is definitely more tweed than the photos show. The two dresses I received (size 2 and 4) were a little worn out (frayed material) so I could not wear this dress to the semi-formal wedding I was attending. Luckily RTR made up for it by overnighting me a replacement dress.

This dress is so much fun! The fit, the colors, the cut outs, its a true show stopper. I wore this to a concert and after party in Nashville for the first night of my husband's 30th birthday weekend. The pictures online do not do this dress justice!! It is way more fabulous in person. I paired it with black pumps and gold accessories. The fit is very true to size, it fit like a glove. I would recommend going up a size for your back up if it is available because it is very fitted across the bodice. I got so many compliments on this dress and it was perfect for a night on the town!

I ordered both a zero and two; the dress runs small and tight all over so I wore the two. Also,, I thought the fabric would be a shiny patent but it turned out to be a woven dresses- the threads seem to fray a little all over. Still, I really like the dress and it looked great for the wedding- just a little warm for summer,

Kaleidoscope dress is the perfect name for this dress. The colors are vibrant and beautiful. The fabric doesn't have much give minus the black elastic sides. I'm a true 0 so this dress fit perfectly even after a 5 course meal and dessert. The only thing weird about the dress is the shoulders, because of the cutouts, it didn't sit perfect on my shoulders and sometime would awkwardly 'bunch up'.

The fit is pretty tight so do some crunches before wearing this number unless you don't mind a little muffin popping out. I'm usually a size 0 and wore the size 2. The material is thick, almost like tweed, but it was comfortable in an October wedding. The neckline looks better in person and very unique.

Seeing a dear friend wed, a very emotional evening!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I normally wear a size 8, however that wasn't available for the event I was renting for. And based on the reviews, I figured I would be fine with a 10. It actually was too big on me throughout. The slight advantage of that is that as the dress has no stretch, it was nice to have some extra space for things like getting in and out of the car. The dress is quite beautiful, got many compliments, but the make of the dress is just a little too restricting. I imagine that the 8 would have fit and looked way better, but I definitely would have been uncomfortable due to the non stretch fabric. I think a slit in the back would have made a huge difference in wearability. I also wonder if the dress had been stretched out over time because it pooched very oddly in the stomach area. Not very flattering but probably something only I noticed anyway.
