Beautiful, but not made for the busty.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I ordered this dress when the size 4 of the dress I ordered was damaged. The problem with the more expensive dresses is that I guess no one orders them so you don't have any reviews to rely on. Anyway, this dress is exquisitely made. The beading is beautiful, the fabric is a thick, glamorous gold brocade, and the boning is very flattering. But. I don't think this dress was made for curvy girls. Although I'm large-chested, I usually wear a 4, and I could just barely manage to squeeze myself into this dress. It was so tight in the bust it gave me a uni-boob. It was tough to keep my bra from showing at the armholes, probably because the bust was too tight. Also, it was tough to pull my spanks back up after going to the bathroom because I had to get past the stiff boning at the waist and was afraid it was going to tear through the dress. So I gave it four stars to account for it running so small. Otherwise, it was really lovely and I got a number of compliments on it.

I wore this dress as a guest at a wedding, and received numerous compliments. It is a high-end designer dress, with gorgeous fabric and exceptional construction. The jeweled details at the collar are subtle and classy. Very sophisticated look. It definitely runs very small. I am usually between size 4 and 6, but this was snug. Nonetheless, I felt wonderful wearing this dress,and I"m so glad I ordered it.

I rented my normal size (6) and it was way too small. Next size up was unavailable at the time I rented it - so I did not use the dress.

Beautiful dress and material. But too long and matronly looking for me to wear to my event.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
It was sent to me as a back-up, when one of the sizes for the dress I ordered was not available. I had read the all reviews, and decided to size up. That was a bad decision, as the dress wound up being too large on me. Although the material and color were both beautiful, the length on was tea-length. I ended up wearing another dress instead.

Felt like a million bucks

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
RTR overnighted this dress for my brother's wedding after the original dress I rented was damaged beyond repair. Turns out I lucked out because this dress was amazing and probably better than the original. It was pretty tight but because the material was so thick and sturdy I didn't feel like it was exposing too much. The dress made me feel like a million bucks and I received a ton of compliments on it!

Having everyone gasp when they saw me in this dress!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this dress for a Formal Holiday business party. The original dress I ordered did not arrive on time so a consultant at the Flatiron (NYC) Store helped me find this one. At first sight, i thought it looked more like a dress for a little lady going to church than a 26 year old BUT it was amazing when I put it on. The color is subtle with a little shine and the beading on the neck is a sophisticated touch. You're only exposing your arms, but the dress is tight and hugs your curves with the length (it stopped at my knee) keeping it classy. I paired it with black peep toe ankle strap pumps and a black and gold clutch (from RTR). Got stares all night! I would like to rent this dress again...maybe for a wedding!
