Gorgeous fabric and amazing dress, if you can peg your size right .
This dress is not too forgiving and runs small.

Beautiful dress, not right for my coloring.
Beautiful dress, but I have olive coloring and this dress washed me out. The black slits do not line up evenly. The top part is elegant and flattering, however.

The dress was a lot darker than I thought it was going to be and it was cut weird.
The skirt has 2 slits in the back ad I could not get them to line up right. It was almost like it was cut crooked. I love the top part of the dress.

Gorgeous dress, nice fit, great experience.
The fabric is a bit darker than it appears in the photo, but it was still beautiful. Flattering, easy to wear fit. Loved the simplicity of having a ready-to-wear dress, and then being able to just ship it back the next day. I will definitely rent again!

Perfect Different Kind of Cocktail Dress!!!
If you want to wear a dress to a cocktail party that turns heads and is not your typical little black dress than this is the dress you want. They say that it's gold but the print definitely makes it look a bit more taupe-ish grey. No matter what the color, it turns heads. I got compliments on the dress all night and I think it was just because it's so different from what people are used to seeing. The one shoulder gives it just enough sex appeal, but the knee length keeps it classy. Wish I had taken a full length pic so you could see my electric blue suede heels that I paired with it.

Not that flattering
The dress was nice but the way it tightens around the middle area and the silk fabric made me really conscious of how my stomach looked. I wouldn't recommend this for anyone who is worried about their middle area.

Better for girls with curves
Not a good fit for silm figures, it would look great on a woman with curves. Also, I'm 5'8 and this dress is really long on me. Wasn't what I was expecting at all.

Tight in Midsection
This was an absolutely stunning dress in person - great neutral/gold for an evening wedding. I am 5'9 185 with a fairly athletic/muscular build - typically wear a 29 in jeans and an 8-12 in dresses depending on the designer or brand. I rented the 10 and the 12 and disappointingly, neither fit! The midsection area (problem area for me) was very very tight and I looked too squeezed into it for it to be passable for an evening wedding and for photos. Disappointed that it didn't fit - would still recommend the dress, especially if you are tall and like tea-length dresses.

A tad too big in the waist
Beautiful dress! There were a few pulls but it was not very noticeable. This was my back up dress but sadly it was too big. The zero was not available.

I felt sophisticated and classy in this Rachel Roy dress and received several great compliments! It felt like the dress was made for me.
LOVED this dress! I ordered the 8 and the 10 thinking the 8 would be perfect however it barley zipped over hips and butt; luckily the 10 fit great. I got a ton of compliments on the dress. The dress is sophisticated yet trendy. The neckline is beautiful and the color, although it appears darker in person than on the site, was amazing. It is also easily dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

The process was super easy, the price was affordable, and I got tons of compliments. I felt special and beautiful : )
I wore this dress for my opening night on Broadway. I didn't want to be too dressy, but was going for a clean, different print with a casual length. This dress was perfect for me. I have a tummy and broad shoulders, but the dress hid this perfectly. The neckline and one shoulder look accentuated my collarbone and the hem hit just below the knee so my calves looked great. The back did not drape quite as nicely as the model, but nonetheless, it was very flattering. I'm a size 10/12 and I think it slimmed me down nicely!

cool dress!
Great dress! I got LOTS of compliments on it. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars was that the top of the bodice and sholder kept rolling to see the lining.

One of the former reviews was spot on and I should've taken the advice - this dress doesn't look like ANYTHING pictured online. It definitely looks like someone spilled water or liquid bleach on it - just terrible coloring and unflattering. I'm also not a far of the length - I'm not a particularly tiny girl, but that dress was mid calf on me and the back vent on the dress is seriously unflattering. The color is also not as as pictured - imagine more of a gold/cement color, not so much gray and silver. NOT A FAN!

Everyone questioning where I got my dress from.
Loved this dress! I received many compliments at the wedding I attended. The dress was a bit long, but I'm only 5'2". It was more tea length and hit pass my knee. I would recommend this dress to others.

I highly recommend this dress! It was beautiful on, very slimming and looked great with my tan. I loved the cut and it was comfortable enough to wear for hours. The material was very soft. I felt great in it and received so many compliments at the wedding that I wore it to.

The dress fits oddly. I ordered a 2 and a 4. The 2 was too tight across the hips, but, fit well in the top area. The 2 was too large in the top and hips. I have olive skin and dark hair and the dress totally washed me out. It looks gorgeous on the model- but, didn't look nearly as good in person. I opted for a herve leger instead and it fit wonderfully!

This dress is a beautiful and modern design, but I wasn't a fan of the fabric print and color in person. The tie-dye type print looks somewhat like you spilled bleach on it! I believe it comes in a different color and recommend that RTR switch it out.

I rented the dress in a 10, which ended being too big for me. I took my chances because the 8 wasn't available. It seems like I could have fit a size 6. It is a beautifully made dress however I would not recommend this dress for darker skin tones. The color really washed me out when I tried it on. Works well if you have a full bust or not.
