Didn't wear...
Ran so small. Couldn't even zip it up. Didn't have a back up size so couldn't wear. I was bummed because it was such a cute dress.

Comfortable and unique black dress
Bust area was a little roomy so I was nervous about readjusting all night. I love the length and detail around the bottom of the dress. Worn with a chunky christmas green necklace and gold flats. Easy to wear, elegant and feminine!

Simple and pretty
The dress runs small in my opinion, I wore it to a small / simple wedding. It's a very comfortable dress, wore it all day. You can dress it up with accessories or let the dress be the main focus for a more simple look.

Runs large and not flattering.
This dress ran very large and was not flattering. It was such a beautiful dress and I was disappointed in the fit of it. It made me look much larger than it should have. Shame!

Elegant lace, with unique boning details
Loved this dress for a black tie optional wedding. I loved the tea length hemline it was so different and felt much more "dressed up". This dress is so much more beautiful in person, with the unique boning detail and delicate lace.

Loved this beautiful dress!
This is a gorgeous dress and perfect for a cocktail/formal affair. It hits mid calf and since I'm shorter hit even a little longer than that. The bodice is beautifully tailored with black lace and stuff enough that no bra was needed. I felt very elegant and sophisticated!

Love this dress!
Glad it was only available in 0 and 4. I would have gotten a 2, but definitely needed the zero. I have ZERO bust, so size down if you're the same. If you've got girls, you may be able to wear your true size.

the dress is cute, but the bodice is less constructed than i was expecting. definatly more of a party dress than a black tie wedding dress. overall the fit is also a bit big, i would go down at least one size if you are smaller on top - it's super forgiving on the bottom.

This is a beautiful, classy dress and the skirt is really fun. I usually wear a 2, and that fit ok, but the 0 fit better.

The dress was beautiful but fit weird on my hips. It may just be that the dress isn't for my body type, but I'm sure it would have looked lovely.

Beautiful with a vintage-y feel.
This dress was perfect for a wedding in which I was a bridesmaid and needed a black dress (bride let us wear any black dress). I loved the tea length and the lace overlay. RTR was out of the 2 so I ordered the 0 and it fit well--it may have been slightly tighter than I wanted but I think the 2 would have been too big. It's very comfortable, stayed up during a long night with lots of dancing, and I received tons of compliments.

Very long
I'm 5'4. The size 4 was a little big. The skirt was very puffy and it was extremely long. I would only recommend if you're pretty tall. It also did not feel as sexy on as it looks in the picture. I felt buried in fabric.

Love this dress! I am usually a 6 in dresses, but I am glad I got the 4, it definitely runs big. If you have a small chest you will need something to fill out the bust part. Also, not as lacy as the picture portrays, but still very pretty.

review of Adam dress
I ordered this dress for the first time with RTR. The reviews all said it ran big so I ordered a 4 and a 2. Size 2 was not available so they sent just the size 4. The top was too tight, so I had to return it. Otherwise it is a pretty dress.

Beautiful night for a wonderful cause!
Ladies-this dress is gorgeous BUT if you are any bigger than a D cup, go up 2 sizes! I wear a small or 6 in clothes, a M or 8 in dresses that are fitted or tailored - but it took 2 men and me lying on my side on a bed to zip me into it! Once I was in, the dress fit fabulously (albeit being tight through the bust area). I could breathe, eat, move, etc, normally. Everything else fit the way a size 8 would-just getting the dress zipped over my bust was a challenge!

I loved loved loved the look of this dress! I got so many compliments.
Obsessed with this dress, may end up buying it. I will warn that it does run small in the chest area. I'm always between a size 6 or size 8 and the 8 fit just perfectly. If I had been any larger I would have been out of look. I'm not really endowed in my chest area so definitely make sure you take that into consideration. However, I loved it!

cute dress, really long
I am 5"4 and this was really really long on me. Otherwise, it is a pretty dress, but nothing special. Its a little matronly. Didn't wear it, but if you are tall, it might be a good choice.

Very pretty
Ordered a size 8 and 10. The 8 fit like a glove but the top was a little awkward around the chest, so I went with the 10 which was a tad big but felt more comfortable. I spent the night pulling it up constantly. Received many compliments, however. The dress is very pretty. Works for a formal event or evening cocktail attire.

Not for my shape
The bodice was sturdy but I think the overall shape wasn't for my body type. The dress made me look much wider than I am. I ended up not wearing it. Also, I felt it looked a little bit longer than I wanted.

My friend told me I looked like a princess!
This dress was stunning, the lace was delicate looking but really strong so I was never scared I would rip it. It fit a little large, but that just made it really comfortable and still fit well.

Pretty dress, but the fit was off.
The top is constructed oddly. The top fit properly except along the bust it pushed my chest in, making the dress unflattering.

Absolutely love RTR!
This dress was perfect for my New Year's Eve event. I usually wear a size 8 but opted for the 6 because it fit a bit better. The size 8 did fit though. The dress was as pictured on RTR. Loved the tea length and the lace made it super girly. Got tonnnnsss of compliments!

Beautiful dress, love the lace!
I loved the fit of the corset top, but the dress was way too long. I have to remember that I do not have long legs and the picture is not how it will look on me. I didn't end up wearing it because the length ended up being awkward. It was down by my ankles!

Pretty dress...a little matronly though
Cute dress. It's not as fun and flirty on as it looks on the model. A little frumpy looking. Didn't end up wearing it but it was good back-up dress. I just had a baby and wasn't sure my other one would fit but I squeezed into it in time. Woo Hoo!

THIS DRESS!!! So beautiful for a winery wedding!! The fascinator was a hit as well!!!
The fit was like this dress was made for my body.. Very comfortable and the length is perfect, and I danced all night in it no problems!!! Called the stylist for rent the runway and gave her my measurements, and she was dead on!! She said 4, so I got a 0 & 4 and the winner was 4!!! Thank you stylist!! I got it the day before and paired it with some gold glitter peep toes and a almost pink/whiten opal-rock necklace, and tried the hat I had and it looked so elegant and went perfect with everything !! Compliments all night long ...I felt like I finally got to go to the prom I never went to!! And pretty hot pink lipstick toned down! Perfect!!! I love this company and think there are geniuses!! Thank you for my prom experience!!

This dress was not a wow for my body type, but good coverage if you are trying to hide below waist.
The dress I originally ordered became unavailable less than 24 hours before scheduled delivery. I hastily picked this one as a safe bet and it was. I was looking for something with more of a WOW factor.

Very nice quality
I was sent this dress after the dress I had originally rented was returned to RTR in poor condition. I ended up wearing the back up size of my original dress instead of this one. However, I can tell you that this dress was made in very good quality and was a simple type of pretty. I ultimately chose the other option due to the somewhat matronly style of this dress. I felt that it was a little too conservative for me. If you are looking for a simple, tasteful dress though, this could be the one!

Beautiful dress, but just didn't fit for me!
Rented this for a friend's wedding, and it arrived early and was just beautiful! Unfortunately the size 8 was too small and even though the 10 seemed like it would have fit, it would NOT zip, even with 2 people helping me! Had to send it back for fit and get a replacement dress, and they were just wonderful about it. The dress itself was beautiful, very classy and flowy. Might not have been the best fit for us girls with generous hips, as the tight waistband hit in a most unfortunate spot and then poofed out a little Still gorgeous, and I wish I had been able to wear it!

the zipper does get stuck on the way up and down occasionally but worth it!

Loved this dress.
Beautiful dress, I felt very sophisticated and elegant. The quality is incredible and the lace was beautiful. I wore an 8 because there was no 10, it was a bit snug on top the 10 probably would have fit perfect. The bust does have an unusual shape, its probably fine if you're a bit smaller on top. All in all I loved it and felt absolutely beautiful.

I rented this for a formal dinner party & it was perfect! I was worried about being strapless & being a larger breasted women, but it fit like a glove. It was very comfortable. I would rent this dress again.

This dress was very playful!
The lace was really soft and the upper bodice had nice structure so it kept me together. I still wore a strapless bra for some extra umph. The bodice by the end of the night did up feeling a little tight, but I didn't mind it for most of the day. I spiced up the LBD with a fun pop of color with a necklace. I got lots of compliments!
