I wore this dress for my debut on Access Hollywood. It made me feel confident next to Billy Bush and crew:) The dress and detailing are so beautiful and is perfect if you want to feel feminine with a little flare!

The perfect fit, absolutely stunning decolletage. The shape allowed me to wear a bra (34DD) and cinched at the narrowest part of my waist.

The length was perfect, I am 5'6 and it came above the knee enough to show some leg but wasn't too short.

Bold and beautiful

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress to a black-tie wedding and received many compliments. The color comes out really nicely in photos and it is easy to dance in. As you can see from the photo, I was feeling sassy, haha! It creates a nice hourglass figure with a slight blouson above the waist and flare in the skirt. The beading detail is really nicely done. I could see how if you have broad shoulders this style might enhance that a bit, but it is very good offset for pear shapes.

*Very Disappointed at RTW*

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This was my first time ordering from RTW and I was completely dissatisfied. The dress fit great, BUT it didnt look like it was dry cleaned!!! Both of my dress sizes had food stains on them!!!! I spent $185 on 2 style of dresses, only to find out, 1. Didnt fit 2. This style did fit, but it was dirty! Not wasting my money here anymore. Much rather buy a dress at the mall for this price.

This dress runs relatively true to size--but definitely order the smaller size as your alternate. The color is GORGEOUS and the picture does not do it justice. The detailing looks luxurious the dress fits amazingly--I feel like it would look good on any body type. I will be running for this dress if RTR ever decides to sell it during one of their sales.

Beautiful dress! I wore this to a wedding and received so many compliments. The color and detail of the beading is beautiful, the photo just doesn't capture how amazing the dress is in person.

I typically wear 8s and 10s depending on the bust (I'm a 32H), and with this dress the 8 fit perfectly. The color of this dress is STUNNING, as are the details. I wore it to an upscale Mother’s Day brunch and it was a big hit. Thanks RTR!

I got this dress in a size 4 (I'm a 4-6 in dress sizes) and it was a real tight squeeze in the waist. I ended up wearing a different dress, but I'll get this one again in a larger size. It's stunning!

I received this dress as a back-up to a Brian Reyes dress I was renting that's back-up was damaged. I spoke with a customer service person who told me that I might want to go up a size b/c it runs small. I did (I ordered a 12, I seem to be currently wearing 10s and 8s), but it was HUGE. I think it might have been a more true-to-size fit for me at an 8. I do have a large bust (34-DD), and I felt it would probably accommodate that in a size 8. However, one thing I noticed is that you really do have to have a longer torso (or a sizeable bust) to fill out the top portion, or the straps will be bothersome.

Better for taller girls as it'll slip off the shoulders if you don't have a long torso.

The color and detailing are amazing on this dress! Though, my waist is small I did go up a size because the empire waist is really small.
