This dress fits like a potato sack. The fabric is also rough to the touch. I had to make a last-minute rental and hoped this one would work; it didn't. The regular size was incredibly short and so was the long. Luckily, RTR has GREAT customer service and I had a backup dress that worked out amazingly. This dress may work for some body types, but rent at your own risk.

I loved the color of this dress, but it was unavailable in my size for the date I wanted. However, after speaking with a sales rep, I was convinced that the size up (which was available) would fit. It did not - it was huge! Also, I have a large chest, which made the dress hang more like an empire waist than a natural waist (as shown in the picture). The color was beautiful, but definitely order in your size and a size down and stay away if you are a D-cup!

This dress is perfect for the curvy, tall girl - that is, if you don't have an ample bosom. As you can tell from the picture the neckline is indeed a deep plunging neckline, and anyone with a cup bigger than a B, will literally bust out of the dress - because it's a wrap plunging neckline even dress tape cannot work its magic. Though the dress fit perfect everywhere else, my chest area was way to exposed and I had to return. It's a shame because the color is perfect, the cap sleeves and gathering detail is lovely, the cut is chic and forgiving on the curves. One quick mention, there is no lining in this dress - so be aware!

Due to the size of my hips, I'm typically between sizes 12 and 14. Thinking that this dress would be a good fit for me since it's flow-y and runs large I opted to order the 12L and 12R as my back-up. My mistake. This dress runs incredibly large. I should have ordered the 10L. Both of the 12s just hung on my body, but it was evident that the dress itself had potential. Unfortunately, I couldn't wear either dress. Also, I think another reviewer already mentioned this, but if you want the dress to skim the floor like the pictures, anyone taller than say 5'5" will want the long. Anyway, all in all, I'll most likely order it again, but this time go smaller.

I normally wear a size 4, but was told the size 6 would do; it was still too large, I should have stuck with the size 4. It was a beautiful color - though I personally did not like the quality of the material. That was not the biggest problem. From the photo of the dress on the model, one would expect the dress to skim the floor beautifully. It did not! I ordered the 6R and I'm almost 5'4" and dressed in the gown bare foot, it was a good 3" too short! If I had gone with the longer size, with heals, I would have looked fine. I would say, if you are tall, do not even bother with this dress if you want it to skim the ground.

I am usually a size 4 but sometimes run 6. I ordered both sizes and the 4 was too big! I would recommend ordering your size and one down. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to wear it and went with my backup, but the color is gorgeous!
