The accent colors made it so figure flattering!
This dress is awesome and has no downsides! The fabric felt luxurious and not cheap in any way.

Mardi Gras Ball Fun
I absolutely loved this dress! Rented for a Mardi Gras ball and it was perfect! The fit was great, I ordered just the one dress in 2 sizes: 14/16 and this was the 14. I have a large chest and was able to wear my regular bra. I also wore spanx just to keep smooth lines. But the dress is thick enough and designed well enough to not need them. The length was regular and was perfect, I'm 5'4 and didn't have to hold my dress all night. There is no zipper, it goes over your head but is extremely comfortable. I recommend this dress! I received compliments all night!

So classy and glam!
I ordered this dress for my brothers wedding (middle eastern) so we go all out. But my mom ended up loving it and made me give it to her so I let her because it is also perfect for mother of the groom. We both loved it but this is myself in the dress trying it on. I am a 38 DDD so the 14 felt better on the chest. My mom ended up wearing the 12. It is gorggg! We are both 5'3 so the regular was great

I loved this dress and felt like a princess!
I wore this dress to a black tie gala and awards dinner where my mom was receiving an award. I had already tried it on in the RTR store so knew that it fit very well. I usually wear a size 12, but I enjoyed wearing a size 14 in this dress because I did not need to wear any shapewear since the material flowed away from the body and was black, so was very forgiving. The one thing that is important to note is that I did have to use fashion tape to adhere the dress to my strapless bra. Otherwise the dress would slip down just a bit and reveal the edge of my strapless bra. Overall, the dress was beautiful and comfortable, and I would rent it again!

The dress for beautifully, felt luxurious, and I received many compliments on the neckline.
The fit was perfect. I am only 5'1" so with 3" heels it was just a tad too long but not so much so that I couldn't hold it up a bit when walking. It felt comfortable and luxurious the entire evening. If you are busy be aware that it does show cleavage. It really is a beautiful gown.

Ended up getting a "different" dress
I tried on the 16W (only size available) during my RTR consultation/try-on session and the sales associate ordered me one size down. I did not get a backup size as the 12R (which I ended up wearing ) is considered a "different" dress. I loved the dress in the appropriate size. There is plenty of stretch to make it fit like a glove.

Fit well but was big on the shoulders and had to keep pulling it up. Go with size down.

Great dress, but beware of sizing
I was hesitant to rent this dress as I was unsure of how it would look on me. However, I was quite surprised.!! This would have been a beautiful dress if I had ordered the right size. I am typically between a 14/16 and all that was available was a 16R. It was huge!! Too big and short for me to even wear. I did not realize there was a difference between a 14/16 and a 14w/16w. I will definitely rent this again in Long and in the standard size. This dress is great for busty women as you can wear a regular bra and was not too much cleavage (I am a 38F). Also the darting on the dress gives you a great hourglass shape.

I wore this dress to a Black Hall of Fame Gala. I loved the dress!! I felt like Cinderella!!
The actual size and the back up size I needed were unavailable. The 16WR did fit, but it was so snug and the 22WR was huge and gapped in the front. I made it work for the event and I received so many compliments on the dress!!

The dress was perfect for a James Bond themed party! The gold on the back is AWESOME!
I was mostly concerned about the length, since I am only 5'2", but the dress turned out to be a great length. It's a little longer in the back than the front, so I ended up wearing SUPER high heels, just to keep it off the ground in the back, but I think I could have gotten away with a little shorter heel if I wanted and just made sure to hold the dress up a little while I walked. Other note, the dress looks better with a padded or push up bra (if you're like me, I'm more wide-chested than actually busty) It was a little hard to find a bra that didn't show in the chest hole of the dress, so keep that in mind, you may have to do some adjusting. Dress isn't clingy at all, so I actually got away with skipping the spanx, which was great too! Material is a little thick, so wouldn't suggest it for summer events, but mine was winter, so it was PERFECT! Loved it on me and so did my date ;)

Dress fit like a glove
Just about everyone recognized the dress from RTR and Thank God no one else had it on. I wore flats and the dress hit me right at the floor and would rise up as I was walking. I do have wide hips so I'm going to blame that for the dress rising. The dress was comfortable to dance and walk around in. There is some leeway in the fabric which allows comfort while sitting. Received compliments throughout the night.

Great quality dress.
The fabric was great and I was comfortable all night. I did have to have my mom put in a temporary hem since I am short and the dress was very long.

LOVE IT
I literally dream about how great this dress it. It is the most elegant, comfortable, sexy formal dress I have ever worn. The material hangs perfectly but has plenty of stretch for comfort. The cut out portion of the top gave just enough cleavage to be subtlety sexy without looking inappropriate. I am 6' and ordered the long and you need it. I wore heels and it flared out nicely. I highly recommend

This dress was everything! I looked great, cleavage looked marvelous. I could dance, it was comfy!
The fit was great, I wish I could have taken it in a little more in the waist to really give me that hour glass shape but it was last minute. I am in love with this dress. What a great night celebrating at a Masquerade Party to celebrate a friend who is a SURVIVOR of Breast Cancer! I looked great in this dress!

I felt like a princess in the dress!
Felt great in this dress. Only complaint is the hem and it fell very funny. I had to iron it out and it still fell weird. It was almost balloon like at the bottom. I received the dress early on a Friday and had to have it returned by Monday at 12:00pm. It was my first experience with RTR and it was an amazing experience. The bust is a little low cut but if you're okay with the girls out a bit, this dress is for you :)

LOVE THIS DRESS
I rented this for a formal wedding and got the most compliments on it. I'm between at 14 and 16, which is what I ordered, then the 14 was unavailable and I was scared, but the 16 fit great. It wasn't loose at all fit just right, I probably would've chosen the 16 anyway, it was so comfortable. It does show some cleavage which I was perfectly fine with, but if that's a concern this might not be the dress for you. It was not heavy, it was not hot, it was easy to move in, as I stayed on the dance floor all night. Now worries about sweat stains or anything like that. The black through the mid-section really hides your belly. I'm 5'4 and the regular length was great, I wore high shoes in the beginning and then put on my flops and it barely drug the floor, perfect height for me. And the gold part that comes in on the sides is very slimming. It was great and so glad I got this dress.

Perfect dress for the Navy Ball
I'm in between sizes sometimes... 16 and 18. The 18WR fit perfectly. The fabric is just thick enough to hide imperfections without being smothering. Also, I was able to wear a Spanx open bust body suit that was totally concealed.

Perfect- different but tasteful.
This dress was beautiful. Flattering fit. The material was great. I wore it to a black tie wedding and I felt like I looked different but still understated. The only thing was that it has a tiny train and I kept stepping on it. But that's probably my issue more than the dress's. Loved it!

All the compliments on the beautiful gown!!
I was fortunate enough to be able to go to the New York store to browse. I was so lucky to have Janine B as my stylist!! She was so wonderful to work with. If you're able to get to the NYC store, request Janine B!! She selected gowns that I never would have chosen and looked amazing on me. This own was the last I tried on and loved it. I normally wear 16 or 18 dress. For this gown I needed 16W and it was perfect.

I loved everything about this dress, from the details to the fit. I received endless compliments and love how it looks in pictures. The dress is light and comfortable. I think it runs slightly big, and I could have went down a size.

Runs big. This fit like a glove. Curves for days and easy to dance in. Heels did catch a few times on back, but just held up back while walking.

Never got so many compliments! Pics don't do it justice!
Pros: super comfy to wear! great quality fabric, little stretch/give to it - I'm between a 14 & 16 and the 14WR was perfect, Reg length perfect to hide flats (what I wanted - but if you're taller than 5'4" you may want the Long), can wear a normal bra! Cons: lots of loose threads in gold areas from wear but they weren't noticeable in person. I was wary of ordering & felt like it might not be great on/in person & I was so wrong. I've NEVER been complemented more & wish I had more photos but was too busy having a blast! I paired it with the fab Moschino gold clutch from RTR!

I wore this for my 40th birthday and i felt Beautiful in this!
I originally ordered a 20 and 18 because i had read that it fit small. The 20 was huge and the 18 for big. I could've pulled it off if i had to but i wanted to try for a 16. I wrote them and they over nighted me a 16 and it fit BEAUTIFULLY!. It was a nice heavy material so it clung to all the right places. The material didn't look good with a corset under it so i went without and it was fine. I thought it made the girls look fabulous as well! It has a Egyptian Princess look to it that i loved. It was also long enough to wear 4 inch heels. Def a head turner!

Unique, well suited to Apple Shapes
Beautiful and unique dress, but if you're towards the hourglass or pear shape, it may not be a great fit for you. I'm 5'10" (should have gotten the long, too, by the way), 38DD, 215 pounds, and most of it is in my hips and caboose. The 16WR fit that area fine, but left about 4 inches of extra fabric on both sides of my waist. Too unflattering, so I didn't wear it. It would probably be ideal for an apple figure, though, because the gold panels are really flattering and lovely.

I was attending a formal event at West Point and Army colors are black & gold so this dress was key!
Got tons of compliments on this gown. I am 5'6" and tried this dress on in the RTR showroom in NYC prior to ordering. Luckily we knew to order the LONG in my size (something I'd never really think I'd need since I'm average height). The length was perfect. My only complaint would be that the gold top sort of dug into my underarms and was scratchy but nothing I couldn't handle for 1 night. It was a great dress and was flattering.

I didn't wear the dress it was too thick and heavy and the lining was a bit tight in the butt area..
I found the fabric of the dress to be too thick for a summer wedding so I ended up not wearing and sending it back early

I did not wear this dress as the size I rented (20WL) was too big and made the cutout and the gold accents hit in weird places. This is supposed to be form fitting, otherwise it looses its appeal! This is a comfortable dress, although the gold may present some problems to sensitive skin under the arms.

Not great
I rented this dress for a wedding and didn't wear it. The 16R was too large and hanging on me. I didn't like the fabric on the dress or the cut. If you have large boobs , it only makes them look larger and not in a good way. Perhaps if it was a better sizing fit this would be better for a Fall/Winter wedding or Holiday party, but not great for a summer wedding. (Maybe if it was black tie affair).
