Beautiful dress!!
Ran a little bit large so I'm glad I got a smaller backup size! Loved the asymmetrical hemline and open back and the color was gorgeous. Paired with a gold clutch and gold headband also rented from RTR!

The dress is great. I wore it to a party and everyone was asking where I got it!
It fits well but the Zipper in the back would side a little when you dance. Also the dress is a lot longer then the photo. Other then that the dress was spectacular. The accessories for this dress can be so simple yet so elegant. I would be carful with your bust size because it fit a little smaller there.

STYLIST REVIEW
This style perfectly reflects that saying, "business in the front, party in the back." The dark floral pattern and jewel tones are perfect for fall, and the more conservative front is juxtaposed with an alluring cutout back. This style is a true fit and flare with a high-low hem and some understated pleating along the skirt of the dress. This style has comfortable room in the bodice, so it is great for all bust sizes. It's great for larger busts! The fabric has no stretch and is fitted at the natural waist, so I recommend sizing up for your backup size, particularly if you have an apple body type or carry more weight in the midsection. Work it with a gold cuff to bring out the gold accents in the dress, and add some statement earrings for a fashionable fall look.

Worn to Breeders Cup at Keeneland!!
This was the perfect fall dress for a special occasion! Especially an event like the Breeders Cup where it is a must to dress to the nines! I loved the purple, green, and gold colors! I thought the dress was true to size. The back is open so you either need to go bra-less or have stick-on bra cups. The material is thick which kept me warm since I was at an outdoor event in mid fall. I also paired with black tights and black pumps to complete the look. (The only thing I was missing was a fancy hat!) I am 5'9" so I felt the length was perfect. The front hem hit just below mid thigh and the back hem hit just below my knees. I would rent this dress again! I received many compliments all day! Thank you RTR for another great experience!!

Really fun party dress!! Great fit!
Beautiful dress that is great for a night out or a fun party. I wore it for a surprise birthday party and it fit perfectly. The fabric is really great quality and the dress was in pristine condition when I received it. The fit was a little snug, so I technically could have gone up a size but they did not have an 8 available at the time. With the back being cut out, it allows for more breathing room if you do need to wear a size smaller. I loved the colors and thought it was perfect for Fall/Winter. I would definitely rent this dress again!

The colors were perfect for a flirty fall formal look!
The dress fit perfectly- I don't usually go for high-low looks, but this one was just the right length in the front and back (even for a tall gal!)

Little too roomy to make it work
I rented this dress in a 0 and 2 as my primary and another as a backup. Ended up wearing the backup b/c the 0 was too loose on me. I don't have any sort of bust going and you need to do bra-less vs. sticky silicone patches to fill out the dress. I did love the actual dress (as someone said "business in the front / party in the back"), and how it's shorter in the front on the bottom - giving shorter people a chance :) but I was just too petite for it. Wish I coulda worn it!

I got lots of compliments throughout the night! The colors of the dress were beautiful!
The dress was really beautiful but photographed a little darker than it actually was. The gold really made it stand out. The only problems I had were the zipper in the back kept coming slightly unzipped and the dress slightly bunched in the front. Other than that it fit great and I felt beautiful in it! My rent the runway experience was great and would definitely rent again!

Pretty dress. The only bad thing is that I'm a little on the short side. I had to stand up straight 99% of the time to make sure the back(black) part of the dress doesn't slouch.

Perfect wedding dress!
Got so many compliments on this beautiful dress. The open back and the cut of the skirt, were my favorite parts! Size 2 was unavailable when I ordered, so I had to wear the 4 which was a bit big in the bodice and back. I would recommend sizing down for your second size, but seems to run pretty true!

Perfect for my sorority's fall formal!
It fit great except for the open back. On me the back gapped at the bottom really bad so I had to safety pin it which make it pull a tiny bit at the waist. I think it gapped because of my bust size, but other than that it was beautiful and I loved it!

Perfect Fall Floral!
I love this dress and I am so happy I finally ordered from RTR. The dress is beautiful with thick fabric that feels like good quality. The top was large on me and I forgot a sticky bra so I went braless (no one could tell). The waist has no stretch and this is why I sized up from the 6 to the 8. Everyone told me my dress was gorgeous!

Beautiful Dress
I wore this dress to two events actually, a rehearsal dinner on Thursday night and then a wedding on Saturday. Both times I received a ton of compliments on the dress. It is in credibly well made. Because the back was open I went braless and even as a 32 DD I never felt uncomfortable. My one and only complaint would be that the dress needs a hook and eye closure above the zipper because every once in awhile the zipper would come down the tiniest bit.

How long was this dress on you? I'm the same height and I'm not sure if it'll be too long on me or not. Thanks!
KimberlyNovember 27, 2015
I added some pictures so hopefully that will help. But the front was a little bit above the knee and the back was about 2 inches longer then that.

Work Christmas Party dress!!!
I would say the bottom is true to size but the top was a bit big. I probably could have worn the 8, but I felt more comfortable in the 10. Like other reviews said, the zipper of the bottom part doesn't stay up, but I only had to fix it a few times(and I was cutting a rug!) I got so many compliments!! The skirt floors out when you twirl, and I'm a big fan of that!!

Great dress for Christmas party
This dress got me so many compliments! It fit like a glove and the hem wasn't an overly dramatic high-low and hit in just the right place. It was classy - business in the front, party in the back! The dress did photograph darker than I would've like and the only MAJOR con was the zipper. It kept coming unzipped an inch or so. Regardless, I would pick this dress all over again.

Perfect winter cocktail dress
The cutout back is designed for a longer torso but I was able to secure the extra fabric with double sided tape. Bonus for shorter ladies: the high cut in this high-low skirt looks fairly wholesome on those of us who aren't as tall as the model here. This full skirt moves beautifully and the heavy, lined fabric never clung.

This dress definitely made people take a second look. It looks black and blue, but sparkles gold.
Gorgeous dress for a night out. I especially like the asymmetrical hemline and the gold accents. The dress is mostly padded, so you can go without a bra, but I chose not to. It was a bit tight in the waist, which was a bit high for my taste. It sat slightly above my waistline, but otherwise it didn't bother me too much. The skirt was so much fun to dance in on NYE, I got so many complements. Truly made my night just that much more special.

I got this dress for my birthday brunch at the Waldorf Astoria.
This dress was super classy and fun. The back had a cut out which made it a little more glam. The pictures really don't do it justice. I loved the fit and will definitely try this brand again.

Great RTR experience. Dress was perfect for the wedding and I got lots of compliments!
I am small in the bust area so I had to wear an adhesive bra to fill it out, as it's a bit baggy in that area. Other than that, the fit was great. No complaints!

Waist fit true to size but like everyone else said it was hard to fill the top of the dress. I had so many compliments and at an event where short and long dresses were allowed I definitely didn't feel like I was under dressed.

Dressing up for the gala was a lot of fun! The dress was a hit!
The bust was a little tight, and I think the cut was just a little funny... But, it was a fun dress and I got a lot of complements on it. I was surprised that the dress' colors weren't as vibrant as in the pictures online. It is a much more subtle print than I expected...

Beautiful dress. 5'0" and 102 lbs. waist was tight but back was a little loose. Should've ordered a 2 for back up but then back probably would've been too loose.

Loved the colors, the slight shimmer from the gold, and the asymmetric design.
I wore this for a formal Mardi Gras party and it was perfect! I am normally a size 6, but chose to wear the size 8 due to an issue with the zipper closing in the back; it would zip to the top, but once I started moving around it would fall. The dress would definitely benefit from a hook and eye closure at this spot, but moving a size up helped and it still looked great. I got a ton of compliments, and would absolutely wear it again. Other than the zipper, there were no issues. I highly recommend it!

The back is the best!
I rented this dress for one of my best pals' weddings. While the front made me feel a bit wide (I added a gold metallic belt accent to try to help), I adored the cut-out in the back. The A-line skirt was also fun and perfect for the dance floor! My main issue with this dress was the zipper in the back. It didn't have anything to secure it at the top, so may have a tendency to slip down a bit if you're really moving.

Perfect Dress
I usually run away from dresses with the back out because I have a full bust (34J) and need all the support I can get from a thick bra strap. This was my back-up option, sort of a fantasy option just in case for a formal event. It ended up being the dress I wore. I added lower back straps to my regular bra... poof my bra disappeared and my bust were sitting up just fine. This dress had a very lovely full skirt and flared out. I love it. I will rent it again.

Not the right cut or material for me but looks great on others!
Color of dress more more dull than in photo. The material was a little too thick - felt more like a curtain. Not an ideal cut for long torso/short leg ladies. Open back was great.

Beautiful dress with gold details!
This dress is even more gorgeous in person as the gold accents stand out even more. I paired this with a thin jewel belt and silver/gold shoes. The back of this dress is very cool but it does make it difficult to wear a normal bra. I ended up wearing no bra which worked out fine because 1) the material of the dress is very thick and patterned 2) the dress fit well enough I didn't need to wear one. I did have an issue with the back zipper though. At the top of the zipper there is no hook so the dress would kind of come unzipped slightly in the back. I kind of made my own hook using a safety pin so it wouldn't come unzipped.

Not the best for short, petite girls!
I'm 5'1 and the dress is on the longer side making the front skirt not as high as on the model which I feel loses the high-low effect. If there was a 00 or XXS for this dress, it would've looked better on me but that's just because I'm very skinny on top.

Got compliments on this dress all night at my cousin's wedding!
Fit pretty well, my belly's a bit bigger than my actual natural waist size, but it wasn't uncomfortable. The back (which I forgot to take pics of) was a little big and hung loosely, which also pulled the chest awkwardly, but I was able to safety pin the lower part of the back to the top of the skirt and that fixed it. I'm 5'3.5" and the front fell to just above the knee, the back flowed a little longer and it flared up nicely. I just wished I'd had a sweater, because wearing this to a beach wedding in the Northeastern US at the beginning of April, the open back got a bit chilly with the sea breeze. Overall, the colors looked great, I wore gold heels with it which popped the hints of gold in the dress, and compliments abounded.

The back of the dress got lots of compliments.
The fit was true to size with plenty of room for bigger bust and support was good without wearing a bra. The dress doesn't have a clip or latch at the top of the zipper and it never moved, even through lots of dancing. It fit well, was comfortable, and got lots of attention.

Beautiful dress.
Runs a little big for me in the bust, but average I would say in the waist (at least I have a bust on the smaller side, so it was small there for me), however, I still would wear it anyways. I thought it was beautiful. I wound up not having the occasion to wear this, but I definitely would rent this again.

Dress is beautiful, I wish the back was different.
The front of this dress is beautiful! The open back was a little tricky. It was gaping open in the back as you can see in the picture. When I tried the size larger, the rest of the dress looked boxy. It was nice to have two sizes, but unfortunately, was not a good fit.
