Stunning gown!

This gown is so beautiful, the photos honestly do it no justice. It's different. It was a ball gown but not too big and frilly. I loved the pattern and everything about gown. Had great cleavage going on too, and pockets! Went perfectly with gun mental/black jewelry and heels. I got compliments all night long.

gorgeous and elegant

This was one of three choices I selected via Unlimited for an upcoming event. It came to me brand-new with tags. The fabric is breathtakingly gorgeous and intricate, and it has pockets to boot. It's the kind of versatile fancy dress that could handle a ton of sparkling jewelry and accessories or you could go simple with the accompaniments and let the dress speak for itself. While it was classy, elegant and beautiful, it ran pretty big in the waistline and bodice (I could fit a fist in the waist and I do not have a particularly small waist for my size!), so I ended up going for a different option.

This was a backup dress that was the perfect choice.

This dress was amazing. I had complete strangers walk up to me all evening to tell me how beautiful this dress was. At an event with 300 people, several commented that it was the prettiest dress in the room. As for fit, even with my large chest, the straps were a little loose over the shoulder. A strip of dress tape between my bra strap and the dress kept them in place all night long. The pockets were an added bonus. I wore flats and the dress was a touch long, Even small kitten keels would have made a difference.

Perfect Dress for a Black tie event

BEAUTIFUL DRESS, very classy. I run between a 6 and an 8 in normal clothes, and this dress was perfect. I got the 6 and it was a tad snug in the waist (that's normal for me) and the 8 was a tad big in the bust (that's normal for me). I could have worn either, but I wore the 8 to be a little more comfortable. I am 5'4", I wore 4 inch heels, and used the removable hem tape to hold it up 2 more inches so that it didn't drag on the floor.

Fit was perfect. It was long enough for me at 5'11" to wear a 3" heel too. Yay! It was so comfortable. The pockets were amazing.

I felt like a queen!

The dress is a gorgeous profile in contrast and balance: Featherweight with volume, playful with gravitas, casual feel with a formal look. It should be reserved for a formal affair or a state dinner. And - at the risk of being heteronormative - your escort will need a tuxedo to match your fabulous regalness. This dress would look good on anyone, but it is made for queens of size, e.g. tall and plus-sized divas). Note: It is a long, voluminous dress. So if you are average height but order long from RTR just to be sure (nothing worse than a too short dress and R is usually too short), you will need to wear heels (even an inch or two will help). Of course, you can wear an ugly comfortable shoe because no one will see it. The dress draws the attention and is so long your feet are covered. Thx RTR! I felt like a queen!

Beautiful dress but didn't wear it

Tried on a 22 regular (floor length) in the store, it was a little too big. I was concerned about my bra showing, and it seemed that going a size down would work. The regular wasn't available in a 20 so I went with the 20 long and 18 long as a backup. The 20 was a little big and unfortunately, my bra stilled showed. The 18 was a little tight (but still workable) but my bra showed too much.

I wore this as a wedding guest and got complimented all night!

This dress was super gorgeous, and extremely comfortable. I was suprised to find out that it has pockets, which is fantastic! I recommend it for a fall or winter wedding due to the material being pretty heavy. The dress was long; I also recommend heels so it doesn't drag on the floor. I wore a regular bra, and the chest area was still a little big, but in no way too revealing. This dress also has a very pretty shimmer to it.

I loved wearing this dress! I got a ton of compliments, it's beautiful and comfy!

It's long so you have to wear heels. The pockets are fun and can hold quite a bit. It's a very forgiving dress as well. I didn't wear a bra with it and it provided enough support.

Fabulous Dress!

This dress is so glamorous and fabulous! It fits beautifully and doesn't require any spanx to smooth out because it is poofy for the bottom half. You'll want to wear a strapless bra and the dress does have a fair bit of cleavage. People were complimenting the dress all night long. Loved it!

Stunningly elegant.

I have a very narrow waist, so I went with the 2, even though I usually wear a 4. It was not tight at all. On me, it was still long, just grazing the floor, even with 4" heels. But, it was stunning under the lights of a formal reception.

I ended up not wearing the dress or the back up because they were both too big.

There is more silver thread in the dress than comes through on the picture so it really is beautiful when seen in person. I would totally rent this again but really pay attention to my size and measure for a accurate fit.

It was just the touch of classy I wanted and best thing is I was crowned Miss Alliance!

Pros looked great on stage! Very comfortable - love the pockets. Cons straps moved around a little bit and the dress didn't flow like I would have liked it to during evening gown. But still over all I was happy! I am short 5'2' and wore about 3 inches and the dress hit the floor just right with the 12 R (it was my back up dress) I had actually ordered the 14R to begin with but wanted to make sure so went a little bigger but the 12R fit fabulously. So grateful for the back up which actually ended up fitting true to size!

This dress is stunning, it looks so much better in person. I received compliments all night.

From the waist down the dress fit perfectly. I am a DD, so it was tight in the bust. I tried a size 6 as well, but it was still tight and the waist was too loose. Other than at the bust the dress was very comfortable and did not wrinkle, so it was easy to get in and out of the car on the way to my event. It was very easy to accessorize with the dress and I loved wearing it.

The dress was forgiving in the size (enough to eat and have plenty of room). However, the dress was quite long. I'm 5'6" and with 3.5" heels it still grazed the floor. I ended up having to hold it while dancing.

Beatiful dress, had lots of compliments, its comfortable and has pockets!

Its a great dress! It was fitted and slimming in the waist, had extra fabric in hips to add curve, flow and contrast without being excessive. It was a bit lower cut than expected and looser in the chest, despite my more than average sized chest, but still tasteful and appropiate for a Ball. I would reccomend it!

Beautiful dress with pockets!

I found the dress to be bigger than I expected - usually wear 16/18 and would definitely have sizes down from this 18. Length of the long was good on me with a lower (<2in) heel. Silver is especially beautiful in person. This dress is definitely formal, and a great pick for a winter affair.

This dress runs large. It was my backup -- I ordered a 10, but an 8 would have been perfect.

I will definitely choose this dress again for a formal affair. It is stunning.

Pros: Beautiful fabric, high quality, and pockets! Cons: Very tight around the rib cage and low cut. I went with a different dress for the vent because this was not very comfortable.

Beautiful, comfortable AND POCKETS!

This dress was my 2nd choice when ordering but my 1st choice for wearing to the actual event. IT HAS POCKETS!! I love pockets in formal gowns. My phone fit in one pocket and my lipgloss in the other pocket. So convenient. The brocade is really lovely with well placed repeat design throughout the dress. It's a medium weight fabric so I could see using this dress in any season. I wore it for a December black tie event. And undergarments are simple--no spanx needed. But I did wear a strapless bra because the straps of gown are kind of wide-placed (to skim the edge of shoulders) and I didn't want to fuss with my bra straps the whole evening. Accessories were easy, too--the fabric has a pretty silver metallic going through it so I went with classic jewelry and added a belt with gems on it for a bit of bling. The length is good--I'm 5'4" and wore 3" heels. Dress was off the ground in front and maybe skimmed floor in back.

Textured beautifully

This was sent as a backup gown, and I nearly wore it as my husband went crazy for it. The long requires heels, which i didnt want to wear. Also, personally I felt the pattern made me look bigger.

Kept me warm

This is a heavy dress. I wore to a formal Christmas concert. It snowed that night. The dress kept my legs warm and I threw the scarf around my shoulders while inside. I also wore ballet flats so my heals wouldnt get ruined. Many compliments.

Beautiful dress but a bit large on top

This dress was a backup as the second size for my first choice was no longer available. I chose a size 18 and in person the dress really is gorgeous. However the top of the dress was almost a size too big. I could easily pull the straps down around my shoulders and felt I would have the keep my shoulders shrugged all night to keep them up. Had I gone down a size I am not sure the seam around the rib cage would have fit. Beautiful dress for sure but the fit is just a bit off.

This dress is AMAZING! It fit like a dream and had pockets. Compliments all night long!

The dress fit perfectly and could wear a normal bra. The pockets were a bonus. I could carry my cell phone, lip gloss and money in my pockets. No need for a purse! The quality of the fabric was fabulous. I felt like the belle of the ball!

Gorgeous showstopper

This dress was incredibly glamorous - I rented it for a wedding with a "hollywood glamour meets winter wonderland" theme, and this gown did not disappoint!! The dress has spacious pockets, and goes perfectly with gunmetal and crystal jewels. The dress would have been way too short on my 5'10" frame if I had ordered the 10R, so tall ladies should get the L option.

Showed up to SF RTR Store with nothing to wear for a formal wedding...found this gem!

Loved this dress! Beautiful quality and colors. Photographs really well! I sized down and wore it off the shoulder and really liked the way that looked. If you have a smaller upper body (even with a big booty) you can size down, I wore a much smaller size than I would recommend and it turned out fine but that was more because what was available that day not best fit.

Great dress for bustier women

Wore to a winter Debutante ball. Good dress for my figure - busty and more apple shaped. I loved it because I could wear my regular bra, it was forgiving to my holiday-bloated belly, and it had pockets. It's hard to imagine this dress working on someone who isn't very chesty. I wear a size four or six usually and got a four in this and it was perfect, although a bit long with a three inch heel. I made an error in my jewelry order - would be good with either larger/statement earrings in rhinestone with silver (not gold) and no necklace or a medium length rhinestone necklace that sits mid chest above décolletage. I went sand necklace.

Such a regal & timeless dress. It even has pockets!

I wore this to my cousins wedding on New Years eve. The wedding was held at an old mansion so I wanted something timeless, but also something with just enough sparkle to celebrate new years. It was perfect! Loved the pockets. The jaquard material was thick enough I didnt need to wear a bra so that made it very comfortable & spanx werent needed. But, with that being said... I do not have sensitive skin at all and under my arms are so sore the next morning as I type this. I danced a fair amount, but not enough to warrant the soft skin under my arms to feel raw from the sparkly jaquard materal. Was it worth it? Totally! I would do it again if given the chance. Perfect dress for a winter wedding. A++

Beautiful gown!

Loved this rental for a black tie new years eve party! Received tons of compliments. The dress is a beautiful color, comfortable, and well-made but the fabric is not too heavy. I chose the 0R because it did not bag at all around the bust, and because the skirt was much more manageable than the 2 long. I am 5'8 and with 3 inch heels the regular length may have been a tiny bit short but really not noticeable. Would highly recommend!
