Fit perfectly with a Hollywood Glam party
This dress is beautiful and would be great with an updo because of the unique back (I failed on this front). It does fit tightly on the hip/butt, so if you have curves in that area, go for a size up.

The bottom of this dress- absolutely gorgeous!
Dress was absolutely beautiful! I felt like a princess as soon as I put it on. Was a little loose, I wish I would've gone for the 4 petite but it still looked great! I'm 5'2" and the length was almost perfect with flats. I only had to pick it up when going up and down stairs. I received so many compliments throughout the night, I would definitely rent this dress again!

Elegant Gown!
I enjoyed wearing this gown to a black tie gala. Flattering to a petite frame and hit right at the floor. I was able to wear a strapless bra with an extender. The bottom of the gown is a beautiful silver/goldish hue. I loved the detail on the back of the gown. Quality material, I was able to move about and dance with ease throughout the evening. I received many compliments and would definitely recommend this gown!

Very OLD HOLLYWOOD
This is a truly show stopping dress. It's HOT- the bottom half is brocade- better for fall or winter. It moves well. The length is great- I'm 6 feet tall, and was able to wear 3 inch heels, without it being short. It runs small- I'm fairly slim--- and I wore bionic spanx and I still felt like I had fat rolls (which I do not) --- so unless you are stick thin, or ridiculously comfortable with your curves, this dress is not for you. OR SIZE UP! It is a one of a kind--- there was nobody else at the gala that had on anything even similar--- very old Hollywood is a great way to describe it. I was told I had the best dress at the ball!

This is a beautiful dress! Got lots of compliments. chic and stylish
interesting fit-length was fine-the very lovely back was a little loose fitting, and it was a bit snug in the hip area. The true vice was the zipper... it was indeed a challenge. You need a buddy or a boyfriend to assist. First time renting Theia. Will do again for sure.

I got so many compliments they're too many to count. This dress is sophisticated yet is very sexy
I am an older woman, but still can be proud of my shape. Sometimes just because it fits doesn't mean I should wear it. Not this dress. It fits tight around the bust and hips. Then the trumpet style balloons out from the knees down. It has a very sophisticated look and also looks exspensive. It doesn't require a lot of jewelry. A good looking shoe is a must because they will show.

Old Hollywood glam
I loved this dress, the details were perfectly executed and really made me feel glamorous. The dress comes down far in the back but you can get away with a black strapless bra. I thought it ran a bit small (especially around the hips) I'm usually a 4 and had to wear a 6.

SOOO MANY COMPLIMENTS! This dress fit me perfectly and was so flattering. Recommend getting "Long" if you're 5'5"/6" and want to wear heels though.

Felt awesome all night!
I wore a 6R and it fit perfectly! However, be aware that if you have a bit of a "muffin top" it is a little bit noticeable (but not distractingly so). The length was just right, though out of habit I lifted it a little (as seen in the picture). I'm approximately 5'5" and wore 3 inch heels, which made the dress about a centimeter or so above the ground. I wear a 34B bra, but I didn't wear one for this dress because of the back. However, I was still comfortable throughout the event.

It runs big. I normally wear a 6 and the 4 for perfect. The zipper is a NIGHTMARE. must have someone else zip and they will have a hard time.

BEAUTIFUL DRESS AND THE PREVIOUS REVIEWS WERE VERY HELPFUL. I AM 54 YEARS OLD, 5'6", 130 LBS WITH A MUSCULAR BUILD. I ORDERED A SIZE 6 AND AN 8 AS A BACK UP. THE SIZE 6 FIT PERFECTLY AND I GOT A LOT TON OF COMPLIMENTS ON THE DRESS. IT WAS A GREAT CHOICE.

Fit snug. Zipper was a challenge I would have went with a four long but it wasn't available. This fit was just pretty snug. Got so many compliments. Felt beautiful in it. Would highly recommend.

Presidential Inauguration! Loved, loved, loved this dress!!!!!!
Sexy, but classy! Great, toned arms work great for this dress. Spanx to hold in the stomach pooch is needed too. The fabric slightly bunches in this area. I didn't want to give this dress back! Got lots of compliments. Flows like a mermaid at the bottom.

Beautiful Dress!
Expect lots of compliments when wearing this. I usually wear a 4 in dresses but am now on the bigger side of 4 so the 6 was perfect. I was able to wear very high heels and the long was great to just touch the floor.

Very comfortable dress
This dress is super comfortable and fit well. You don't need a strapless bra, I just used some tape to make sure the straps didn't peak out. The lining needed a little tape too as it was sticking out a bit. It wasn't the most flattering dress for my stomach but it was so comfortable, I didn't mind. The lower half is a beautiful gold (the lighting doesn't do it justice in my pic) The length was perfect, I wore heels but it just touched the top of my feet. No trip hazard! I just loved this dress.

Didn't wear it, went with second dress.
This dress runs short and tight across the hip, but generous in the upper bodice. The bottom is a metallic texture, NOT ivory like the photo. Can wear a strapless bra. The back is amazing!!

So flattering!
If you have larger breasts, you will need to tape them up or wear some sort of stick on support. The bottom fabric is very thick and flattering.

Comfort- but unforgiving
Runs a little large, thick enough to not need to wear a bra. I wore a strapless and it didn't show. Very comfortable but unforgiving around muffin top area. Received many compliments, the dress looks great in person but again- not flattering on my pudge.

Waaaaay too small
I ordered 4 dresses in varying sizes. This was my first time using RTR so I wasn't sure what to expect. customer service was amazing! I got my first dress (not this one) on a Friday for a gala on Saturday evening. It arrived early afternoon but did not fit. So, I called customer service and they promptly helped me find 3 more dresses in a range of sizes because I was so unsure after my first pick was so large. Customer services promised I would have them by noon Saturday morning. I was very skeptical. I got a package at 9am! This dress was one of the three alternatives. The dress length would have been perfect (I am 5'8) but my stomach is not toned, and this dress showed off EVERY curve... even the ones that are not flattering. This dress did not fit me, but I probably would have ordered a 16 and I'm not sure if that would have fit me either. I probably would recommend ordering a size bigger than what you typically wear. I didn't particularly like the jeweled/broach thing on the stomach. Maybe because it showed off that area. It looked nice on others in pictures, but it wasn't my taste.

It was great. I wore the gown to the Emmys. I received many compliments.
The fit was fine. I also ordered the 12L as a backup. The 12L was a little loose in the back area. I am 5'11, 1601bs. Depending upon the designer, I wear a size 10 and some 8's. The material used is a little heavy which was a little cumbersome on the red carpet in 90 degree weather. All in all I enjoyed wearing the dress.

This dress fit perfectly (once I got it on) and compliments were coming all night!
I am a size 14 in jeans. I am 5'4 and 225lbs. The dress would get more stars if the zipper is awful! You cannot wear this without someone to help you zip it up. Also it's not a dress that sweeps the floor. IT would be great if it were about 2 inches longer.

The dress fit perfectly. The back detail was a perfect accent to the rest of the dress. I have nothing but positives for this dress. The fit was great, it fat true to size, it was good for big busts, it was flattering around the stomach area, and I loved the high neck. I would rent this gown again.

There is nothing bad about this dress! The fabric is heavy and a great quality. It shines under the lights. You need to wear a sticky bra or pasties as the top did not have cups. Loved this dress!

Endless compliments
The dress fit so well. It hugged my waist, hips and bottom perfectly showing off my curves. I was relieved to be able to wear a regular strapless bra since the back is a bit lower and has the cut outs. I absolutely loved wearing this and got so many compliments on the dress.

The dress is a classic fit.
The dress itself is beautiful and classic. The bottom of the dress is a very heavy fabric. I ordered the 6L and the 8L and had to wear the 8L because of the zipper in the 6L. The 6L fit like a glove. You definitely have to have help zipping the dress. The zipper is not friendly or easy to zip. The fabric around your lower tummy gathers and rides up a little. I was able to dance and move around very comfortably during the reception. Overall the dress is a classic and pretty.

Wasn't in love
This dress does fit right in the hips, but it was gorgeous for sure. I didn't think I would be comfortable wearing it for the entire evening, so I bought another dress. Very classy; I wish I would have sized up.

This dress was incredible! Compliments all night long. Very comfortable. Easy to move/dance.
I got tons of compliments in this dress. It is a golden textured bottom which is hard to tell in the picture and actually a lot of people said they liked my shirt. The back is incredible. This was my first RTR and will definitely do it again. I felt gorgeous all night long. I wore this to a NYE wedding and it was perfect for the occasional. So many compliments. LOVE LOVE LOVE

Felt amazing in this dress!
I read all of the reviews on this before renting and everyone was pretty spot on! I'm typically a 4, but one of the girls similar to my size said she wore the 2 - so I rented both and ended up wearing the 2. The zipper, as everyone said, was very hard to zip but it worked! The bottom of the dress is like a champagne color, slightly darker. The top was snug so I didn't wear a bra with this and I was fine! Definitely would recommend giving it a shot.

Ordered this in 6L and 8L. The 6 fit, however it was a tad tight through the rib cage. The 8 was more comfortable, but the the straps didn't fit as well in back. I received a ton of compliments. It was such a comfortable dress and I would wear it again to another formal event. My first time using RTR and it was perfect!
