This dress was amazing! I wore it to a Charity Ball at a conference I attended and it fit the theme perfectly! The best compliment I received all night came from one of the featured guests of the conference. He told me I looked fantastic and then he asked me if we could take a picture together because he wanted to remember my amazing dress. Of course, I said yes!
This dress fit my body shape perfectly and it definitely flattered my full, athletic shoulders, which is something that doesn't happen too often. The only thing that I could see as a potential downside is that it was longer than I anticipated. There's a sizing box when you order that suggests what size heels to wear with certain lengths. I'm 5'10" and the heels I was wearing were 3", so I was expecting the dress to be about an inch off the ground. Boy, was I wrong! I ended up with a two-inch train and I had to make sure that people weren't going to step on my dress at the dance. Other than that minor detail (and, trust me, I would rather have my dresses too long than too short), the dress was amazing! And I looked pretty hot, so I can't complain.

True Blue
What a magnificent gown. I loved it and I felt elegant as I glided across the floor. The color is beautiful as well.

Beautiful Dress
The picture doesn't do this dress justice, the material is just beautiful. The dress runs a little small in the top but has plenty of fabric on the bottom half so it is forgiving in the fit in that area.

Beautiful dress!
This dress was absolutely beautiful and I received a lot of complements. The fabric is great – very pretty up close. I ordered a "long" because I was worried it might be too short (I'm 5'7"). It ended up being a tiny bit too long, but it worked out just fine. I would definitely recommend this dress to anyone else! I wore it to my boyfriend's Navy Birthday Ball. It was very glamorous.

Beautiful!
This dress was gorgeous. It was my backup and I ended up wearing my main choice. This fit perfectly. The color and style were gorgeous! I want to rent it sometime soon because I didn't get a chance to wear it!

Beautiful dress!
I liked this dress a lot. the draping was impeccable and the color was gorgeous. I did however notice a hole in the seam after I left the house on our way to our function. Thankfully it wasn't noticeable and I got by without it getting noticed. :)

Most gorgeous color blue!
I rented this dress and the Major Moment dress. Both were stunning, elegant, well constructed and went to the floor even with 3.5 in heals. This dress was the most beautiful color blue, but I felt that while this dress did a good job hiding my figure flaws, the other dress excentuated the positive. In other words, if you are sensitive about your belly, hips and thighs, then you will be very happy with this dress because it camouflages those areas perfectly!

Fabulous Dress
I ordered this dress because I own pieces by this designer. I am 5'3", 128 lbs, size 4 was too small, and size 6 was a little large and not flattering,as my natural waistline is high.

Pretty Dress
I wore this dress to a Mardi Gras ball; it fit well. My favorite part of the dress is the bottom because it flows so prettily. It was comfortable, and the length was perfect for me. I'm 5'5 1/2" and wore 3 inch heels.

Very Elegant
The fabric and color are more subtle than I expected based on the photos provided on the website. Wonderful feel, flow, and movement. Perfect for a formal event.

The dress I selected was not available. At the last minute they called me and told me. They told me I had 30 min to pick a new dress. I didn't have time to do so. I told her my body shape and height and the color I wanted. I was nervous at first but they sent me a dress that fit me perfectly. Not too happy that they waited until the last minute to find a new dress but they made up for it. Will use them again.
I wore this dress to a military ball. It was selected by the stylist at RTR. I was nervous at first but at now I totally trust them. I have a curvy body and the way the dress wraps at the wait, it made me look slim. Dress a little on the long side.

This is definitely vanity sizing! Both the 6 and 8 were too big, particularly in the bust (which could be a good thing for some of you!) It is very light weight. Did not flatter at the waist, it's a rather straight cut. I really did not like this dress, but that's not to say it's bad it just was bad on me.

Beautiful, beautiful dress! The color is stunning. Waist was a little loose but I had to get a 6 to accommodate my bust.

My friends and I thought this dress looked a bit like a costume. I thought there were many other flattering dresses.
