People asked me if I had this dress custom made!
I was unsure about this dress up until the moment I stepped out the door to go to the wedding. It was a gorgeous dress but I thought it might look too fancy. However, I ended up feeling extremely comfortable in the dress and it fit the day perfectly. People were coming up to me asking if I had the dress custom made because it fit so well! The color and fabric were gorgeous but it ran a little small. I'm usually a 6 and the 8 was just perfect, if not a little snug. This made the armpit area a little tight but nothing to lose sleep over. Overall, I was very happy with this dress and would definitely rent again!

It was the perfect between season dress for summer/fall
I'm a tad hippy so the dress fit a little snug just above the waist. I received many complements but mainly I got a lot of looks and it was because of the dress.

Gorgeous dress! Compliments all night!
I just had a baby so my bra size went from a full B to a full 32 DD. This dress has to be worn with a strapless bra or your straps show because it cuts in near the armpit. I wore the size 8 and it fit perfectly. I'm 5 feet tall and 130lbs. The length went to my knee in the front and mid calf in the back.

Rented this dress for a wedding and did not wear it
This dress is absolutely gorgeous to look at, and I really wish I could have worn it for the wedding that I ordered it for, but the cut of the top part was not what I was expecting at all. I have rented Slate & Willow dresses in the past and have fit perfectly into a size 2. The top part of the dress is the issue because it almost cut in too much near the armpits. The material and the cut of the bottom is just to die for, though! If you have a smaller bust, this dress would probably fit perfectly.

It had pockets!! And the colors were stunning, the gold and green worked well together.
Definitely need to go a size up if you're broader in the shoulders or chest. I usually wear a 6 and wore an 8. I couldn't even zip up the 6.

I loved this dress for the high/low hemline.
It was perfect for a black-tie optional work event. I felt dressed up, but not overdressed. I'm petite so I was worried about length, but with the high/low hemline it hit perfectly just above the knee in the front. I usually wear a 0 or 2, ordered the 2 and it fit really well. I received lots of compliments and would definitely rent this dress again!

I got a lot of compliments on this dress!
I thought this dress was flattering, and comfortable. I went up a size because it was a little more comfortable around the waist, but I could have gotten away with the 8. I am very short- 4/11- and the hi-low hem worked for me.

Loved this dress!
This dress fit great and was super flattering! I wore it to a formal summer wedding and it fit in great and got compliments all night. It had pockets which is always a bonus. The material felt nice, not too thick for summer, and great for dancing.

The dress is so pretty but was too small so I couldn't wear it. I unfortunately tried it on too late to send back and get the next size. There is no "give" which makes the fit tight. If you have a wide back like me, be advised!

Love the fit and the pockets!
I absolutely love this dress! The quality of the material is great and I received so many compliments! My favorite part were the pockets! The dress does run a bit small so I am happy I ordered to also receive a size up. I wore it to a wedding and it was stylish and very comfortable. I barely wanted to give it back, lol.

Okay dress, runs small
I loved the style of the dress but it was very uncomfortable. I am 5'8 and 120 pounds, I usually wear a size 2, I ordered the 2 and 4 and ended up wearing the 4 that was also too tight on me. Definitely go bigger than your normal size.

Fun Dress!
I rented this dress for a fall wedding and received a ton of compliments! It was super comfortable and didn't need any jewelry (or a bra!). I wasn't worried about anyone having a similar dress because this is one of a kind!

First time purchase and was very pleased
I'm normally a 6 and needed the 8. The 8 was a little snug in the rib cage but good around my bust (wore sticky bra with it). My torso was a little short for it so I had to keep pulling up the top but it wasn't a noticeable problem. The length was perfect and I was obsessed with the pockets! If you have a larger and don't want something fitted but is still flattering this dress is great! The dress photographs really well. I paired it with gold earrings and stewpot gold heels. In some lighting the dress looks navy and real while in others it looks black and green. It is a heavier fabric so I wouldn't recommend it for outdoor events in warm weather. Would definitely rent again.

flawless design
I'm not large chested, and I normally wear a size 2, but this was tight in the chest and challenging to wear for a long time (I had my partner unzip me as soon as we left the event). Had I sized up it would have been too big in other areas, though. I liked the material (structured, quality, not too warm), and the pockets were fun and useful during the event.

It was the Tony Awards, but I'd be in the press pool. So I needed dressy, but comfortable.
Dresses are hard for my height + leg length, I feel like I'm flooding in floor length gowns and many tea length or shorter dresses appear even shorter on me. The differing lengths of the front & back of this dress were perfect for my height. I usually order an 8 & a 10 for a backup, but this designer def. runs small so I opted for a 10 & 12. The 10 fit, but because of the cut of the dress, flattened my chest. I opted to wear the 12. Only real con is the chest-region. I can see this dress being a no-go for anyone much bustier than me. This dress is incredibly well-made. The material is thick and doesn't breathe well up-top, but the length and shape of the skirt kept me comfortable. PLUS the thick material & dark pattern prevent any sweat stains from showing. This dress was the perfect amount of class & comfort - it was perfect for everything from walking 6 blocks, to sitting & working my event, to the gala afterwards. I received so many compliments that I wish I owned it! The zipper runs all the way up to your neck, so you'll need a buddy to help zip & unzip you. I wore a strapless bra, but probably could have gotten away with a racerback. Because of the shine and shimmer in the dress, you can choose to accessorize as simply or dramatically as you want. FYI I did NOT like this dress online, but tried it on in a RTR store and loved it.

Squishes the girls
This dress is a very flattering cut, however the fabric does not have much give to it and it's not for busty ladies. I am a nursing mama between a 34-36 D/DD cup, had to size up to my backup size 6, and it still was squishing the girls all night! Uncomfortable in that department, otherwise a great dress

Great dress for a New Year's Eve Wedding!
I wore this to a New Year's Eve Wedding and it was perfect! It was a little tighter in the chest than most other dresses I've rented, but I'm a 34D so it made sense. I probably should have worn the 4R because of the chest, but I was in a hurry and the 2R fit, so I went with it.

Very beautiful dress but it runs really small!
It was gorgeous and got a lot of compliments. But it had no give in the fabric and was cut small on top. I wore about 4 sizes above what I usually wear. Once I got the dress on it was comfortable and I loved the mystery bling. Overall happy with the rental!

Like others have said, this fabric doesn't have a lot of give, so it was a little snug in the waist, but overall was a great fit. The material is thick, so it was perfect for a fall formal. Plus, pockets!! I got tons of compliments on this dress and would absolutely wear it again.

Beautiful, comfortable dress, lots of compliments!
I thought I'd be able to wear a regular bra, but because of the way it cuts in at the shoulder, you do have to wear a strapless. The chest is very fitted, so I had to go up a size.

Beautiful dress!
This dress looked great! It was definitely tight in the chest for me (therefore I'd say it runs slightly small, though maybe not for someone with more average/smaller chest size) but was still comfortable enough. It was more sparkly than you can tell from the pictures which is generally not my style, but it forced me to branch out and I liked it a lot!

I received several compliments on the dress. Very pretty dress.
I found it ran small in the bust/stomach area. I am definitely glad I upsized on my back up. It was a pretty dress. I've rented multiple times and never had a problem with RTR.

It was a great event and the dress was perfect for the occasion!
I went to an event that was similar to a sorority or fraternity formal. It was my first time at one and this dress was perfect for the occasion. My only critique was that it was super tight around the bust and waist. It looked okay though but you can definitely feel the tightness.

Beautiful dress! The colors are rich and it was perfect for a winter wedding!
Loved this dress so much more than I expected to! I ordered it in a 6 and an 8 and found very little difference between the two. Ending up wearing the 8 because the 6 was a little tight in the chest/waist. The colors of this dress are beautiful and I loved the way it was higher in the front. I got a lot of compliments on this dress and felt fabulous in it! Would definitely order again!

Tight up top.
I didn't end up wearing this dress. It's a gorgeous dress with amazing fabric, but just didn't fit me quite right. I am a 34b but could barely squeeze my breasts into this one. I wouldn't have been able to wear a bra and it made me look flat. I didn't have a backup size, otherwise I think the 4 would have fit!

Awesome fabric, but strange fit
The fabric is gorgeous. It has just the right amount of gold flecks that make it feel special and luxe without being flashy or over-the-top. The neckline and high-low hem also elevate this dress and make it feel a bit fancier and certainly more interesting than a basic cocktail dress. BUT - as many reviewers have said, the fit on top is very strange. I fit into my normal size 4 without a bra (though I probably could have gone down to a 2 in the waist.) However, it completely pancaked my chest , and was pretty unflattering.

Beautiful dress but it runs small
I ordered the 4 as backup (usually wear a 0 or 2) after reading the reviews, and I am so glad I did, because I needed it! The dress runs incredibly small and the bodice has absolutely no stretch; I was very uncomfortable by the end of the night. That said, it's a beautiful dress with high-quality fabric, a flattering hemline, and great structure. Just make sure you size up and maybe even get a larger backup size than normal.

I don't want to sound cheesy, but I felt so pretty in this dress!
As many of the reviewers noted, it does run a bit small, so I would suggest going up a size. I'm normally an 8/10, but the 10 was a bit tight around the bust so the 12 fit me perfectly. I highly recommend this dress for any wedding or related special event.

Beautiful dress but runs really small
I loved the look of this dress, however there is NO give at all to the fabric. I had ordered a 6 with an 8 as the backup size and wish I had gotten the 10 as it was too tight in the ribcage for me. The dress did look amazing on and I got alot of compliments.
