Gorgeous dress for cocktail or formal affair
This dress is from Vera Wang's Spring Collection 2016 Run of Show. With thick silk faille, this dress has a classic look that is both sexy and sophisticated. For my body type (straight and narrow below and curvy/athletic above) this dress ran true to size on the bottom and very small on top. The tailored pencil skirt runs true to size if you have narrow hips like I do. And the top has a couture pleated back that runs small if you have a larger breast size like I do. For this reason I would recommend going up one size in your back up and maybe up two sizes if you are large breasted and have curvy hips. I paired this dress with Oscar de la Renta Gold Ribbon Necklace and the Windrose Pave ring. I wore a strpaless bra but it has boning in it so if you might not need to wear a bra if smaller chested.

RTR Team Review
I loved the detail in this dress! The shape was so flattering. My usual dress size is a four and I am wearing a size four in the photo. The dress was small on me so I recommend going a size up for a backup size. The dress was very fitted throughout my midsection and my hips. The fabric does not have any stretch to it. This dress would work best for an A-C cup. I am 36D and it was very tight on me. This dress must be worn with a strapless bra. I am 5’9” and the dress was mid-thigh on me. This dress would be great to wear to a formal party or gala. Pair with black heels and silver jewelry.

Mini Dress in Front, Formal in Back
This dress ran small so my normal 2 was perfect in the size 4. I am also tall and planning to wear this to a wedding, but decided against it bc it was about a good 10 inches above my knee in the front! Way to short for my comfort. Love the cut and style and fabric. Looks very pricey. But you gotta be good with the length given your event. Would recommend for someone 5'6" or shorter.

I am normally a 00 and it was still too small for me.
An adorable, well made dress, but sizing is way off.

Lots of compliments
I loved the concept of this dress- the back overlay made it really stand out. I have a slim build and this fit me well (I am flat chested) but you might consider going up one size if that is not the case for your frame. Definitely do a "sit test" before you decide to wear- it can become significantly tighter. Also, have a steamer handy as the thick fabric can get very crumpled in shipping. All in all I loved it- definitely save this for a more formal wedding though, the style is very dramatic for a casual setting.

After party to wedding night
I ordered this dress as an after party outfit for my wedding night and after reading all the reviews I was worried and sized up. I originally ordered a size 4 and 6. Unfortunately, the size 4 was not available at the last min and I was only sent the size 6. I have fairly small breasts and my torso was swimming in what was clearly supposed to be a corset style fitted top. Luckily I have a bridesmaid that has larger breast than I do and she ended up wearing it the next day so it wasn't a total waste.

Very gorg dress, great material but not true to size
I got this dress for NYE but it's not true to size. Sadly they did not have a size up available. Went with a Monique L dress instead.

Fun style
I rented for A wedding but unfortunately the boning in the side of the dress was damage which made it very uncomfortable. The 6 zipped but could not breath. The 8 fit comfortably but could not wear rent the runway has great customer service and overnighted me a new dress to the hotel which worked perfect. Top was very snug on this dress

First birthday dinner dress as the Mrs~
The dress was beautiful but it runs small. Size 2 was way too small and the zipper was broken. Thankfully I ordered a backup size 4 and it fit! One main complaint is that the buttons on the back kept unbuttoning.

So sad, so small
I am a 6 or a 8 normally and neither fit. The 8 couldn't even zip, I could have used a 12 and maybe it would have fit. I was so said because it was so nice!

Gorgeous!!! Wish it was bigger
I was so excited to order this dress, but I wear a 34DD bra size so I was worried about the top not fitting. I was right to worry bc it hardly zipped and when I breathed it was a tad painful and hard to sit. Needless to say the dress was tight up top. It also kind of makes your boobs really flat and square. I would totally get again in a size up so I could breathe because it is a stunning dress, and makes anyone look super good. Love, love, love it. But for the extra size, go one up.

Not for busty women
Dress fits true to size and the material seems like a waxed cotton - it is obviously a beautiful and very expensive dress- but it is VERY tight in the breast. I had trouble getting it on and once it slid down there was no way to get it back up! I am a size DD.
