Very form fitting and elongating, however, it is longer than appears in the picture. Also, is more navy than purple in person.

cute but small
I didn't end up wearing this because both sizes were too small. It is a REALLY cute dress but just make sure you order one size up. I ordered a 4 and a 6 ( I usually wear a 6) and it was small.

Turning heads with what I was wearing & feeling comfortable & confident because people were noticing me.
This dress was pretty true to size. I'm usually a 6 or 8 & the 6 (42) fit just fine, the size larger wouldn't have been the snug fit the dress is intended to have. This was my first rental & I'm to do it again. My husband even said he'd buy me this dress breadyecause he loved it on me so much!

Wasn't the typical semi-formal dress worn by others and boy did people notice!!
Beautiful dress that is a deep, rich navy blue - not black. Fits true to size and was just perfect for the event! Quiet sophistication with just enough sexy!!!

How many compliments I received on this dress!
I rented this dress for a wedding and loved it so much that I wore it for a bachelorette party the next night. I LOVED everything about this dress and got a ton of compliments on it. This was my first time renting and my first attempt at european sizing, luckily this dress was true to size. It hugged every curve and was comfortable to dance in all night (both nights!). I highly recommend this dress if you want something different than the LBD for a wedding or special occasion. NOTE: When I ordered this, I thought it was black and purple, but it is navy (very dark navy) so plan your shoes accordingly! Thank you RTR, I just ordered another dress for this weekend!
LainaAugust 30, 2012
So glad you reviewed cause you're my exact size but wasn't sure if you meant it's navy and black or navy and purple.
ginaSeptember 21, 2012

This dress was perfect for the evening wedding I attended. I received so many compliments while wearing it, I felt like a million bucks! Make sure you rent it in your size as it's a very snug fit, but it totally compliments your body. Absolutely loved this dress.

Dress could be paired with alot of different looks depending on what direction you wanted to go
The color and fabric is rich and expensive, though because of the pattern it wasn't always the most flattering in pictures. I paired it with a chunky statement necklace

You look amazing in your photo, makes me want to rent the dress but I'm wondering if you would minds sharing your weight or waist size. Thanks.
LindsaySeptember 11, 2012
Or your bra size please...it looks just perfect on you but you might be a 34D and I'm a 36D.
RTRSeptember 12, 2012
Hi Lindsay! This dress is fitted, but will work great for any bust size!
mollySeptember 20, 2012
i agree that this would work for large bust. i'm a 32DD and had no issues because it had plenty of stretch. i did have to wear a strapless bra so the straps wouldn't show.

gorgeous dress
I wore this Versace dress to a firefighters banquet in March 2012. I received many compliments on it. The color was great and it was very figure flattering. I probably should have gotten the next size up because it was slightly snug on me. Other than that, I would recommend this dress to anyone else and I would rent it again myself!

Gorgeous and comfortable dress! Perfect for petites.
LOVED the dress! Received tons of compliments and felt glamorous but not flashy while wearing it. The dress is very flattering and comfortable to wear since it has some stretch. It's a great fit for petites - i'm 5'3" and it hit above the knee. I normally wear an XS and the size 40 fit perfectly.

Beautiful dress, but a little snug in the hip area so I went with a size 40.

Great looking dress but it runs small.
I love this dress, but it was a bit too tight and short for me. I am 5'8" and it was a wee bit too short. The fabric is great and is slimming. I did not end up wearing it (it was my back up dress).

I looked great for our very good friends' wedding.
The dress definitely runs small. It was tight, but it is supposed to be. The bust and the shoulder area having slightly more room. I was able to dance all night without feeling uncomfortable. I received compliments on how good the dress looked and fit. I received it in good condition.

Lots of room to dance in this dress!
Lots of room for movement as the dress runs a little large because it is made of stretchy material. The color is more of a dark blue as opposed to the purple seen on the model.

The dress did not work out for my body type.
The dress is beautiful and the material was very nice; however, I wasn't able to wear this dress and ended up having to return it. The size 44 was too large on the top half of my body, but was too small below my waist. The 46 fit around my waist, but was way too large on my top half. I am 5'8" with curves, and this just wasn't the right dress for my body type.

LOVE this dress!!!
At first when I rented this dress I was still looking for a back up just in case I didn't like it, but when I tried it on I immediately loved it! It was a little tight in the booty, just right in the chest, and a little loose in the waist (but you need room for dancing right?). I loved the dress so much I even looked online to buy it, but had no luck. So if RTR needs to take this dress off the racks I would love to buy it! Also the renting experience was very easy, I will definitely rent from RTR again.

I wore this dress for a formal work client gala. I received so many compliments! Loved it!
The fit was a little snug. I usually wear a size 4, but went with the 6. Thank goodness for sending 2 sizes! It was the perfect length. Not too short, but young and and flirty. I would highly recommend this dress. It has a subtle coolness for any event.

This dress fit amazingly! I loved that it wasn't too long or too short and it fit well over my butt and chest as well. Now I can say that I've worn a Versace dress and it was so beautiful!

I liked this dress and got a ton of compliments on it.
I am very small on top, so the top was a little bit big. Wore a pushup bra and seemed to fill it a little more, but I pinned it a little bit behind the neck. The bottom was a little snug and the whole dress was a tight fit but it looked good (just had to make sure I didn't need to sit too much). I did like the dress though and got a lot of great comments on it.

Nice dress but not for busty women
I rented this dress for an important dinner and rented the 44 and 46. The 44 was so tight in the chest I had to wear the 46 where that one was too loose in the chest. It was cute but I wouldn't rent it again.

The dress fit like a glove! Everyone commented on how it looked like it was made specifically for me
The dress fit very true to size. It was a little tighter in the hips, so for curvier girls I would go a size up. I ordered a 40 as my back up size, and it was way bigger on top than on the bottom. The length was perfect for a formal affair, but short enough where I didn't feel restricted when dancing. The color was stunning too, just a flare of purple.

Great Dress! I felt chic, and comfortable at a black tie optional wedding.
The dress doesn't have much give, so it fits pretty snug - which I like. There was a 1 inch split up the left side seam. I patched it up with fashion tape that came with my dress and it held most of the night. There were also a few eesnie weensie pulls in the fabric, but you'd have to really be looking for them to notice. Overall - it was a great experience renting from RTR - I will def do it again.

Beautiful dress.
The only problem was the fabric underneath riding up making the dress twist. So I had to keep pulling at it. Slim fit but I would rent it again.

RTR's incredible customer service team made this dress possible. Thank You!
I was originally worried about the fit of the sizes I ordered, since the dress was not available in the showroom, but it ended up working out. The dress was a tad snug in the butt & hips, of which I don't have much, so if you are lucky enough to have a bit of a donk, order a size up or you might not be able to sit. The color in person is gorgeous, photographs really do not do it justice, and a fun statement necklace really tops it off well since the overall design is a bit simple. Although I did not receive any compliments, I felt classy and stylish all night. I definitely recommend this dress for a wedding or comfortable night of dinner & dancing if you are full busted and do not enjoy having your boobs all over the place. Also-Manhattan ladies, if you do not have a doorman in your building, have it delivered to your office or you will have to sit at home and wait for the courier all day since a signature is required. I cant thank RTR's customer service team enough for getting me through this issue. Claire, Katie, and Rachel, you are fantastic. Thank you for staying so late to ensure the courier found my doorman-less apartment after at least one failed attempt. Cant wait to rent again!

Loved the color, fit and fabric of this dress.
Versatile enough to wear to a formal dinner or a dive bar depending on hair/accessories. It was comfortable and figure flattering. I wore a normal bra but a strapless would have been a better choice since my bra strap occasionally showed.

Classy
I wore this dress to the opera and was a perfect choice. Though the dress is form fitting it was very comfortable to sit in for 3 hours and still look fabulous at the after party....no wrinkles! The color of this dress is actually a deep navy blue and purple and NOT black and purple. FYI: though the pattern on the dress is very striking it does not photograph so well.

Fun, pretty colors, figure flattering, sexy, respectable.
It is navy and purple, but I put black patent choos with it, and they were fine. I went without a bra, as I am a 32 G, so I didn't need any extra padding, it was snug, but doable. A normal gal could easily do a traditional bra, esp a racer back, or one that crossed... A demi bra would probably show strap. I felt very comfortable for the most part, and gots lots of compliments. I wore the 40, and I am usually a 2, sometimes a 4, in US sizing.

I wore this to a wedding in May. The fabric and length were perfect. The top was a little big but wore my most padded bra. I still didn't fill it out but it made it way less noticeable. I really loved this dress

Elegant, and Comfortable!
I can not say enough good things about this dress or my first experience with RTR. I knew I needed a dress that was more than a standard wedding dress as I would be sitting at the head table of a pretty fancy wedding with my boyfriend who was a groomsmen. I heard great things about RTR and thought, let's give it a try! I stumbled on this dress and basically fell in love with it. Reserved it up and had everything dialed in... Then two days before delivery I got an email stating that my original size was damaged by a previous renter, but that I could pick out another style as a replacement. Obviously, nothing could compare to this one, but I found a couple others I liked. I asked if they could still send my back up size, and the lovely Rachel from RTR not only sent me the original back up size, but two other styles as well. Come delivery day, I tore the box open and popped on the bigger back up size. And although it didn't have the fit like a glove feel I usually like, the bigger size still looked great and had lots of wiggle room. I would keep in mind though that the 46 they call an 8 on here is marked as a 10 on the tag, but it is also Italian sizes. I added a push up bra to fill in the top portion, but other than that it was just perfect. Come 'wedding day,' I felt like a million bucks. Almost like Kate Middleton gone sassy? I was able to sit comfortably, get down on the dance floor, and all while looking like I spend $600.00 on my dress. :) My only wish is that I took more pictures in it!! Needless to say, I was sad to put this one in the UPS box on Sunday. Definitely something I will be keeping my eye out to actually buy down the road. It is the most PERFECT dress. And thank you to RTR for a great and easy experience! Already have my next dress ordered and ready for another wedding in a couple weeks!

RTR made finding the perfect dress a breeze!! My new favorite place to shop!!
This was a fabulous dress! I got so many compliments. The colors are beautiful. I'm so glad it was navy and not black. This dress is very fitted but stretches so you can dance the night away! If you have a body you want to show off this dress hugs you in all the right places!

This was my first time using RTR, and I will definitely be renting from them again.
The fit of the dress was very flattering, and had a very classy look to it. I wore it to my boss's wedding where I was one of the youngest guests and I felt like I fit right in with this dress. The color is gorgeous and I was comfy the entire night. The size 42 fit just like what I would expect from a size 4, so I would recommend following the size chart provided at checkout. I LOVE this dress and kind of wish I didn't have to return it, but I am glad that I won't have another dress cluttering my closet. With the flawless experience I had with RTR, I will definitely be recommending this site to everyone!
