Beautiful fabric but not a fit.

Beautiful fabric but too long for my height and too tight around middle. Has a side zipper. A larger size would be too big at the bust. Low cut and high slit.

Returned- did not wear

The dress is gorgeous- I love the pattern, color and material. The stock photo is accurate. I returned the dress because the fit just didn't look awesome on me. I am 5'6 140lbs hourglass frame and the dress was beautiful and fit well until it accentuated the outer part of my upper thighs. It fit well up top but the bottom made me look much wider than I am. I think this dress would be perfect on anyone without curves!

Everyone wanted to know where I got my dress!

Perfect fit, I'm 5'8" 155lbs. Small chest. If you have a large chest it may be snug. I went bra-less and it was just right. I received endless compliments, it's a beautiful dress!

Lovely dress for a holiday party!

I wore this dress to my fiancé's company Christmas party in Savannah. I knew I wanted something that fit the vintage vibe of the city as well as the vibe of the historic venue/restaurant we were in. This absolutely fit the bill. I felt beautiful in this dress and received a ton of compliments. Since this is the first review of this dress I'm sharing extra details of the fit and structure for anyone who may be on the fence about renting this little number. For reference, I am 5'7, 145lbs, 30D bra size, and generally a size 4-6 in dresses. I ordered an XS and S, and ended up wearing the S. -The slit comes up WAY higher than I expected--almost to the base of my hip! This might be fine for other events like a wedding, but for a work function I knew I needed to either pin the slit a few inches or wear tights. I chose the tights. -The neckline is definitely a plunging neckline so a plunging bra is almost a necessity. You could probably wear it braless, but I wasn't quite comfortable with that since I was attending a company party. I actually safety-pinned the bottom of the neckline to the base of my most "plunging" bra and that worked okay, but I had to be very strategic about the way I pinned it so you couldn't see my bra. -There is no stretch to this dress, which made it a little tough to put on/take off. The side zipper was pretty low-quality too for an otherwise high-quality dress. I was nervous it would get stuck or break off every time I zipped up the dress. It ended up being fine, but something to keep in mind. -I thought this dress was very flattering for my pear-shaped figure, but I will note that it was pretty snug around my ribcage. If your bra band size is larger than a 30 or 32 and you're considering getting a small, get the medium. Overall, I was happy that I chose this dress and thought it was worth wearing despite the small complications with the tights/bra I listed above.

Velvety and warm

Pros - gorgeous fabric with velvet print, very luxurious and flowing dress. Great for winter nights - it was cold otherwise would have skipped tights. Cons - no pockets (automatic 4 stars), exceptionally tight waist with no give. I just don't understand why designers don't build in a bit more elastic at the waist. Our body shape standing is not the same as sitting. I thought about going up a size but he rest of the dress fit great. This photo definitely doesn't do it justice. Notes: you can go braless, but be prepared to bring some fashion tape. It zips up the side, which you can hide if you'd like to unzip while you eat. Highly recommend if you have a tiny waist

Beautiful but plunging!

I LOVED this dress. I rented it for an office Christmas party though so I did not get to wear it because of the low neckline. It was definitely revealing and too low for a bra. I'm a 36DD and it did smoosh my boobs and rib cage which is why I selected "runs small". This dress is absolutely beautiful (color and fabric) and I would recommend it for a smaller chested person. I hated that it didn't work for me!

Holiday party perfect

Wore this to a corporate holiday party and it was perfect. Not too much showing up top and the slit is very low key unless you're really kicking your leg out. Got tons of compliments, the color is amazing. There is no stretch so the high waist was a bit snug on my ribs.

Holiday Office Party

I was skeptical about this dress. Even after I put it on I wasn't super impressed, but what do I know? I've never gotten more compliments on an outfit than I did last night in the dress. It killed! Tip - Wear a low plung bra.

Dreamy dress!!!

This dress is to die for!!!!! The color is the perfect pop to stand out without being obnoxious. The velvet felt so nice, I kept rubbing it! The chest is fairly fitted. I'm a 32 band size and the XS was snug. The slit is tastefully located so it shows leg without feeling too exposed. Unfortunately the event I was going to wear this to was rescheduled. I will be renting again for sure!!!

Does not stretch at all. Very disappointed.

Love the style and look but the dress had no stretch at all. Make sure u get a bigger size and have a backup just in case. Other wise love the texture, color and sexy slip at front.

Just meh

I thought the dress was kinda cute but it was a little too low cut and the fit just wasn't right. I have a smaller waist and big hips and average chest with large shoulders.. this definitely didn't end up working out for me and my husband said the velvet made me look old..

Perfect Holiday Wedding Dress

Great dress! Loved dancing in it. Got lots of compliments. Was nervous about where the slit would hit but it was perfect. Only problem was I didn't fill out the top exactly right so had to pin it a couple inches up from the low neckline. The long sleeves were a little big on my arms too so I rolled them up to a three quarter sleeve and I liked the look so much better. Highly recommend for a wedding, holiday party, or date night.

The dress has no stretch. I am a 34D and could not get it zipped. Loved the color and fabric. So disappointed I could not wear the dress at all.

Too much boob

Gorgeous fabric and feel. I think this dress is true to size, but I had issues with the bust. Way too low cut and WIDE. I'm a 34D and it was actually large in the bust for me. It might have been great for a wedding with a plunge bra and tape, but for a company party it was just too much. I couldn't put anything under it to make it look good either.

Black tie optional perfection!

Loved this dress. Wore it for a winter wedding. It was very comfortable and I got tons of compliments! Has a high slit and a low cut front. I had a bra that worked with the low cut front but I could see someone having to go braless with it. I recommend renting!

Overall too big and too small for my 5'2" frame

I wanted to love this dress but sadly I didn't. The waist section was very small so if I did anything other than stand I wasn't comfortable. I couldn't imagine sitting for hours and eating comfortably. The length, on the other hand, was too long for my height. Between the length and the a-line cut, the whole dress look awkward and overwhelming. I think the dress is good for someone taller and slender.

Winter wedding done right!

I'm 5'3 and weigh 138. I wore the medium. I will have to say the fit under your chest seemed very tight. The side zipper also was stubborn. If I rented again I would size up. I did receive lots of compliments! Such a beautiful dress for a winter wedding.

34 D -Small -size up 1-2 sizes or stay away

So sad it would not have even fit my chest size. If your smaller and have boobs I think dress is a skip. Just runs so small in that area that if you sized up ...likely would be too big. I am an athletic build. Hope this helps girls out there.

Obsessed with this dress.

This dress was amazing. I wish I had a pic to share, but trust me, it's gorgeous. Subtly sexy, really beautiful material, and the color stands out. Lots of compliments. The sleeves are a little sheer and the slit / neckline are perfect. I would buy it if I could. I wore it for an office holiday party. It's snug in the torso but fits like a glove. Rent this!!

Hubby loved

Wore a Med but I think I could have worn a small. Dress was low cut and slit pretty high on left leg. I have never worn anything like this & my husband was shocked when he saw me. He loved the dress on me. It was perfect for a winter evening event.

If you have a rib cage and broad shoulders, don't rent. Very unforgiving.

If you have a smaller petite frame this may work. But don't rent if you have broad shoulders.

Tight waistline

Gorgeous dress! Fabric is amazing, love the pattern and high slit. Could have been one of my fave dresses but the empire waist is so tight. I'm a 36B so I have a larger rib cage and I could barely take a full breath. Highly recommended if you can do a tight waist. Otherwise- find another dress.

Beautiful but too small overall

I rented this for NYE dinner and it sadly wasn't even an option. My chest is 36B and I couldn't get it zipped. It looks way more conservative in the photos than in person. It was cut too deep in the cleavage, & the slit was high. The color is gorgeous and the material is lovely.

Beautiful Dress!

Loved this dress and especially the cut. I am a 32 C and have a tiny upper body and I was swimming in it a bit. Would look amazing on someone with a fuller chest.

Loved combo of demure and sexy

Loved the color, fabric and slit. Such a great combo of coverage and sexiness. I have a narrow rib cage and small chest and it fit great. I can see how it might be tight on larger chest. If you are doing a lot of sitting down, some fabric tape might be nice at the chest but it didn't show anything when standing.

RTR Team Review

Fit perfectly for me, gorgeous length and silhouette that complements my body type. Has a deep slit and a deep V neckline. Sleeves are sheer lace with velvet embossing detail. The color and the material make for a romantic mood. Good number for Vday dinner.

Compliments all night!

The split was perfectly placed, it gives the dress some sass. I also love the color and texture, that really made the dress stand out. The fit was perfect and true to size (small). The front is low cut however still very flattering on my small busy. I loved every second of wearing this dress!!

Perfect dress for Barn Wedding

I fell in love with this dress the moment I put it on. It was tight in the chest but I'm also small chested so it worked out perfectly and I could wear my normal bra with it.

Not for the faint of fashion.

Color- eye catching Pattern-classy and elegant Cut-Sexy, but comfortable. I was never worried about anything being out of place and didn't find myself "adjusting" constantly. The neckline is DEEP, which is not my style but I loved it. The slit in the skirt adds one extra dimension of sexiness. The long sleeves were, frankly, a welcome bit of coverage. Overall- the zipper was a challenge, but only at the seams. Once it was on it was very comfortable. The dress is made to get attention. Put your most confident foot forward and party on!

I loved this dress! The velvet detail is beautiful, the length is long, and the color is great. The only con is that it runs small so I had to size up. Since I sized up the cut of the neck was too wide so I had to safety pin it closed

Beautiful Dress Not For Petites

I love this dress...on someone else! At 5'2", the XS Regular was a maxi length hitting my ankles. Unfortunately, the torso was also overall too long and loose, with the V neck gaping open near my navel. The sleeves were too wide and long for me and looked sloppy. Overall, the dress is cut on the slimmer side but if you are an XXS Petite, it may not work for you. I was sad not to be able to wear this beauty!
