Dancing with my husband
I received so many compliments on this dress! I was mostly comfortable in the dress all night - there is no give in the liner, so I wore the larger size just to be comfortable.

Carrie Bradshaw would be jealous
Beautiful dress. Received compliments all night on the elegance of this gown. My only two draw backs are the length and stiching on the waist. People were stepping on the back of the gown all night which was a bummer. I am 5"5" and wore 3" heels, but the dress was still too long in the back. The stitching on the waist has a slight curve on one side. I originally thought it was a defect, but the sales associate pointed it out on the stock photos too. Overall I had a magical night in the dress and felt like I was queen of New York City.

Loved the fit of this dress , a nice change on a typical little black dress. Down side the tulle really takes some fluffing to get it to fall right.

The perfect fun flirty flower girl dress
This dress is great! It fit me in the top but the bottom was a little tight but it didn't matter because of all the tule (sp?). The one disappointing thing about the dress is that the way it is shipped you will never be able to get the tule to lay flat. We even took it into the shop where the bride bought her dress and they couldn't help. They actually said the tule started to melt with they tried steaming. In the end we wet the bottom and left it in the bath as people took hot showers. It was better after that but still could have used some more help. Super fun to wear got lots of complements.

LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE
This dress is AMAZING! I wore heels in he beginning of the night , and instead of being in flip flops or barefoot towards the end of wedding...I put on my motorcycle boots! I am not girly, I never choose the right dresses and I always need help styling myself when getting ready. This dress handled all of those things. I can't stress enough. If you are THINKING about this dress then DO IT NOW!

One of a kind dress!
I usually wear a size 8R dress but ordered a size 10R to be on the safe side. The 8R fit everywhere perfectly but the bust area (I'm a 36D). I wore the 10R and it was great minus being a little bit loose everywhere. I can't tell you how many compliments I received that night! It was such a fantastic feeling, almost like being a princess. I would definitely rent this dress again and I'm so glad I chose this for my cousin's black tie wedding. Definitely size up.

SO FUN!
This dress is such a fun wear! The black is flattering with a nice corset (didn't pinch or poke) and the tulle adds character and oomph. I wore this for a photo shoot and had a blast. It was comfortable (train was just long enough) and added some whimsy to the shoot. Would totally wear this again!

The compliments did not stop all night!
The boning in the top is great for keeping the dress up. However the boning hit my waist and hurt after a while. The lining under the tulle is also very short and if you are going to be sitting, the tulle is very scratchy. Other than those two issues, I loved this dress!

Great dress but runs SMALL
I'm glad I got everything on Thursday before a Friday event. This designer runs small. Normally am a 4/6 safely but the 6 wouldn't even zip. Was able to go into the store in DC and they had an 8 avl for the weekend. Other than this I loved the dress. Comfortable as the corset isn't too long. Was fun to dance in too.

I felt wonderful in this dress - definitely makes an impression.
I had some fit issues, but I am long-waisted and have a broader rib cage and smaller hips so I expected some of that. I usually wear a 4; the 6 was snug and short in the underskirt, but the 8 was way too big. I made the 6 work, but had to add a half slip underneath. It really is better for A or B cups; I was squished flat but fought to get a nu bra in to give some kind of shape. I initially had a panic that I wouldn't be able to breathe or eat, but miraculously, my body adjusted to the confines of the dress. I was sad to send it back, but also so happy that I was able to make it work. A gal with a smaller chest and higher waist would love this forever. Really fun dress.

Loved the puff!
The back fit a little loose and I wasn't a huge fan of the cut where the skirt began but the puffy skirt was great. I don't understand all the reviews of this dress fitting small. The chest fit perfectly and I'm a 36E so if anything it seems it would be large on some. I normally wear a 12 due to my chest but the 12 was too big. Overall a beautiful dress!

Formal yet fun for a black tie event
I was looking for a dress that was formal enough for a black tie event but fun at the same time. This dress was a total winner. I ordered a long traditional gown, but when I put it on, it was just so-so. This dress was comfortable and moved well. Paired well with simple jewelry and heels. If you have hips like me, I recommend ordering up. I typically wear a 4 or 6 in most dresses, but the cut of this dress makes for a very tight bodice to just below the butt, then the rest is all tulle. Getting it comfortable over the hips, while still tight enough on top to keep it all in is key. For my 5'7, 135lb the 6R was perfect. When i received this dress (my first order from RTR), the dress was a mess of wrinkles. I simply hung in the bathroom for a day and the shower was enough to pull out the wrinkles. Would definitely recommend RTR and this dress!

Gorgeous, fun and elegant dress!
This dress fit me perfectly - I absolutely loved it. I rented another style that I ended up wearing for this particular, more low-key wedding - this dress was a little too dressy for the occasion. However, I'll definitely be finding an excuse to rent it soon!

Runs small & top doesn't have much give. Tried a dress by the same maker to get a better idea.

Best Dress of the Night!!!
I wore this dress for a semi formal anniversary party! I purchased this in a 12 but ended up wearing a 10 because of my small bust. The pros were it was fun and flirty but still sexy and classy. I got so many compliments with very little of my shape showing it was modest and I love that! The only con was the tulle in the back was too long more like a train and at times got stuck in my heel. Overall, great dress!

Fun and flirty dress for a Rock N' Roll themed Ball!
While the dress was true to size, I do want to point out an important aspect that I did not realize before ordering. There is a fitted skirt/dress portion underneath the tulle. I thought it would be relaxed under the skirt, but that part of the dress is quite tight. I have a small chest area and big hips, so the size 4 fit my waist and chest, but wouldn't go over my hips. (I am about 34" chest, 28" waist, and 40" hips.) The size 6 fit my hips (a bit snugly) but it was loose around my chest. I made it work by wearing an extra-extra padded bra. I'm 5'7" and was wearing 3 inch heels, and it still was a little long in the back, and kept getting caught on my heels. That all said, I loved it, and got tons of compliments on my outfit. I paired it with a cropped leather jacket for a Rock N Roll themed Ball!

I had to bustle it a bit at the bottom, since I'm petite (5'1). Dress is tight in torso, so be sure to order an extra size up. Wonderful dress to dance in!

Great dress
I rented the dress for a friends wedding. There was an issue with my initial order, and even with the backups sent, so this was one of my last resorts. Luckily, if fit great. A friend even said it was a very "sex and the city dress", exactly what I was going for. I wore the 12R and at 5'6" it was great. The only issue is the tulle skirt was extremely wrinkled. Even after steaming it didn't all come out.

Not for me.
I chose this dress for a military formal and was excited to wear something "fun" for a change. I ordered a 10L and a 12P due to the reviews saying that the dress ran small and has little to no stretch. The 10 somewhat fit but appeared to have been stretched way out around the top, leaving a 1/2" gap all the way around the top of the dress. Additionally, the bodice on this dress is not very long. On my long torso, the bodice hit just below the front of my ribcage and made me look pregnant (or maybe just fat). I tried the backup size on to see if it fit at all, despite the fact that I was not in love with the over all fit. The 12, which had not been stretched out, fit almost exactly the same as the 10 but the zipper refused to connect the teeth and left the back gaping open. RtR was amazing and overnighted me two new dresses since one of my originals was messed up and I was very happy with the replacement. I would think this dress would look better on someone that has a shorter waist or someone that is petite overall. If you have a long torso, I would steer clear.

Couldn't be more in love with this gown!
Wore this for NYE for a fun/fancy concert with my fiancé! A lot of reviews read that this dress ran small - if you're a petite 0, the 0R will fit perfectly! It wasn't too snug or loose and I fell in love with every aspect of this. I am on the much shorter side so it was longer in front and had a small train in the back which I loved! Make sure that you steam it or hang it by the running shower as soon as it arrives due to wrinkles from shipping. Zero complaints and I can't wait to find a reason for this dress again! :)

The event was one for the books and I was able to wow with this dress!
The dress was so unique and was perfect for the occasion. I recommend letting the dress hang outside of the bag for 48 hours before your event so the tulle skirt can really fluff up and look as beautiful as possible!

This dress was perfect for a ball that was black tie. It was fun, lightweight and stylish!
Dress definitely runs small. I could have probably worn a size smaller but the zipper on the 6 was a little tight so I went up a size. I also found myself (at 5'4) tripping on the train a few times. Otherwise, it was a great dress!

Loved this dress! - perfectly over the top!
Tight but very flattering, didn't need a bra for a 32D which was rare but nice! Skirts are very fun, just give it some time to hang or steam out. The lining feels very short but it looks great, overall felt glamorous and a little costumey in a good way (wore it to a company gala on halloween weekend), but the black keeps it toned down enough to wear to a lot of events!

Gave a little "oomph" to a classic black dress!
Wore this to a black tie masquerade gala. I wanted something plain to not draw attention away from the mask and this dress was perfect. It was EXTREMELY tight in the waist! The size 8 was comically too big in the bust, so I squeezed into the 6. I normally wear a 4. Luckily the zipper isn't one of those impossible hidden zippers. Dress was super wrinkly and needed a lot of steaming!! I ended up hanging pants hangers on the bottom to weigh it down and then steamed it which worked well. Overall, it looked great on and I would probably rent it again.

I felt like a princess in a fluffy black dress!
I rented the size 8 and 10. Turns out I think I'm a size 9. Ended up wearing the 10 because I knew I was going to eat a lot. LOL. Went to two formal weddings in the same day. The dress was comfortable and I was able to move around and dance with ease. I am 5"3 and the dress dragged slightly in the back and the front went down to more of a lower calf, not upper chin like the model pictured. I was also wearing 6 inch heals. I did get a TON of compliments though!

So many compliments on the dress!
Very tight bodice with no give in the fabric - I had to size up from the 4 (what I usually wear) to the 6 and then pin it to my bra to keep it up. Lots of great movement from the taffeta and the high-low hem line kept me from tripping all over myself.
