I loved the bustle on the dress. It really makes you feel glamorous walking around. Great LBD

The overall fit was great. The zipper in the back made me slightly nervous that it would open while dancing and moving around. It didn't!! But I made sure I had enough coverage underneath it case it did!

Super chic!

Fit perfectly, a little large in the bust but would probably be perfect for someone with a more average bust size. The ruffles in the back were so chic, I felt like such a ballerina princess in this dress!

Fabulous Dress

This dress made me feel like a princess! It's hard to photograph the bustle in the back but it has body and is fun and sways sassily when you walk. I matched gold jewelry to the bold zipper and I went without a bra because my straps kept creeping into the neckline. It was an inch tall for me in shoulders but standing up straight made it unnoticeable. The band around the torso right above your hips is too snug to pull down but that's why it poofs out so nicely. Size up for your spare

Loved this dress! Fun flirty shape

My usual size was unavailable so I had to size down. It just worked but only because my chest and ribs are small. If you're well endowed on top, stick with your size or maybe even size up. The skirt was nice and full. It almost 'danced' as I walked. It was a perfect dress for my anniversary dinner with my hubby!

It was so much fun to talk with people and dance with the fun ruffle in the back.

The dress is so fun to wear. The fit is just a little small, but very flattering. A great party dress!

Beautiful skirt

The 4 was slightly large and the 2 slightly small. Wore the 4 so I could eat comfortably. The back is very classy.

This dress was awesome to dance in. And a very flattering, fitted top.

The top was fitted, which I liked a lot, but does mean that there is not much give for boobs/rib cage. The skirt is beautiful and full. The only reason that I didn't give five stars is that it had a lot of lint on it and the wrinkles were hard to iron out. I think RtR could do better job of drycleaning. Make sure you have a lint roller!

So many compliments!!

This dress is AMAZING. The fit was incredibly flattering, the swirl of the skirt was super fun, and the length was so perfect. I rent from RTR often, and this is the first dress I was really sad to have to send back. I would want to own this dress. I can't even count the number of compliments I got the day I wore it. I felt beautiful, sexy, and playful. What more could you ask for?!

Compliments all night

Wore to a concert. Very flattering, great for an hourglass figure. Received compliments on my waistline all night. Material was a little heavy but I got used to it. Ran slightly large in the upper body but was no issue overall.

Classic and fun

So many things to love about this dress. The cut is comfortable and classic with the fun flair of the hem and the bustle in the back. The full zipper on the back is a fun detail. I got so many compliment on this dress and people loved the skirt. It was very comfortable to wear and extra bonus you can wear a regular bra! I was worried the 4 would be a bit too tight but it fit perfect.

I've never had so many compliments!

It does run small as most reviews have said so I wore size 4 instead of my normal size 2. Overall I loved the feel and design and would rent again!

Perfect for a winter wedding!

Loved the dress! Classy and elegant - perfect for a formal wedding. Runs a little big - they only had an 8 so I wore that. A little big in the shoulders but other than that - perfect. Would wear again!

Such a comfortable dress!

I rented this for an engagement party and I loved it because of the bustle in the back and how much fabric swung around as I was dancing. I felt like it made the night more fun! I also loved how comfortable this dress was! I could move in it and was not worried about any wardrobe malfunction. I loved the detail of the zipper in the back going all the way down too which made it easy to get on. I would recommend a backless bra though since the back goes low. I tried it with regular bras and part of the back of the bra was always showing. The backless one was fine and I felt the dress was snug enough to keep it up.

Wanted to twirl in this dress all night long!!

Hard to see, but I wore this under a RTR coat. The dress was so fun and flirty. It fit true to size, maybe just slightly big. I loved the bottom of the dress. It was sexy yet sophisticated. I wanted to twirl in it all night!!

Large in the top...

The cut of this dress was gorgeous, but I wasn't able to wear it as it was a bit large on top. I may try renting in a smaller size in the future because I loved the zipper detail on the back!

Very elegant dress

This is not ideal for petites but I was able to make it work. I have narrow shoulders so the straps were wide on me and slipped down a bit. It was tea length on me vs above the knee which made it look more formal. Also fabric is very thick so ideal for winter event. Got a million compliments on it. The only con was the bottom was very wrinkled when I got it.

Beautiful and classy dress! The bustle back was a lovely touch!

I rented this for a semi formal dinner/dance. I am usually a size 6 but I had to get the 4 and 8 because the 6 wasn't available. I ended up wearing the 4 and I actually think it fit me perfectly! I was also able to just wear a normal bra. It was a little longer (at my knees) but for the occasion it was nice. The dress is actually kind of heavy because of all the material. It didn't photograph the best in the dark but in the light it was beautiful. I loved having this be a LBD with a twist!

Beautiful dress

There is absolutely no vanity sizing with this dress. I would say if you're in doubt, order up. Skirt is well constructed and heavy. I would like to have seen a little more weight on the top to balance it out. The zipper is more prominent than in the picture. This is the perfect dress for tall, thin people. :). I really would recommend it, I just got the wrong size and no amount of Spanx was getting me in that dress!

Very fitted by ribs and waist but loose by the bust. Well suited for larger bust and tiny waste. Fabric has no give but looked amazing!

The dress was absolutely beautiful.

I loved the dress! It fit me perfectly. I was worried that the back of the dress would flare out too much making my butt look bigger than it already is, but it didn't at all. It fit my bottom really well. It also was nicely fitted on the top. It is perfect for those who have a small waist and bigger hips.

So many compliments! So comfortable!

I was nervous this wouldn't fit but it was perfect! I'm busty/curvy/short and I could have gone bra less if I wanted. The skirt was full but didn't make me look like I was drowning in fabric. You will definitely want to give this dress a twirl!

Best RTR Dress Ever

This is a super flattering dress ... And very comfortable. It photographs well. The dress length zipper makes getting it on and off very easy. The size 4 arrived damaged so I wore the 2, and it fit fine even though I'm closer to a 4.

Great party dress

Love the flouncy skirt! I felt lovely in this. It was pretty big on top and was glad to have the smaller size. Was able to get away with a strapless bra, which was great. Definitely recommend.

Awesome dancing dress. Very understated and sleek so it would be great for a lot of occasions.

Fit was good and loved the flare in the back. Couldn't be happier with the choice and will be stalking online to try and find one to purchase. Highly recommend. Worked well with pointed shoes to balance out volume of the skirt with my short height. Only note on fit was that it was slightly tight so straps didn't lay perfectly flat on my back. Didn't bother me though!

Too long for my short self

I loved they way this dress looked on the model....sadly for me, it was just too awkward fitting to wear. I'm 5'4" and this dress hung below my knees and the torso was too long. It fit around my hips but was way too baggy in the chest.

Black tie affair

This dress is everything black tie event. I loved the "ruffle butt". The dress hit my hips at an odd spot. From the side I looked ok but from a front view I looked like I had a hip shelf. I am already hippy so I chose not to wear the dress for my own comfort. If the design of the dress hit a bit higher it would have been perfect!!!

Formal yet super fun!

It fit great in the waist! It was a little large in the straps and chest for my smaller bust (36b). I received many compliments all night about how gorgeous it was. Many people loved the back details. Very flowy, fun to dance in!

Perfect dress for a black tie optional event.

This was my first RTR. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The stylists/customer service reps were extremely helpful. Now about the dress... Perfect fit. My only issue was the fact that the zipper kept going down. It could have been awkward had I not checked it every 10 minutes :). I would definitely recommend this dress.

Best dress for dancing!

This dress was amazing to dance in, I twirled all night!! I ended up wearing the 2, which was a tighter fit around the top, but the fabric was stretchy enough that it worked well. Love love love!

Tons of compliments!

This dress has a tight fitting bodice with no stretch. For me, a 34B, it was a perfect fit. I dislike when a skirt is too short, so for me, this was an ideal length. It came to my knees. I'm 5'6". The dress is edgy and feminine at the same time. I received many compliments. Of all the dresses I rented, this one I absolutely MUST own! I'm searching the Internet for my size. A classic LBD with all the right details. Can be dressed up or down.

Elegant and comfortable!

The dress has no give but runs true to size. I'm small up top and didn't have to wear a bra. Very comfortable to dance in, the skirt was fun and I didn't have to watch myself at the wedding's sit down dinner! It's great for tall girls. I'm 5"10 and i almost wished it were a little shorter, which never happens! I'm so glad I rented it!

Cinderella Night!

Dress was great! I got the 8 and 10. 10 was perfect, 8 looked and smelled like it wasn't cleaned. I had a Dryel dry cleaning bag, so I tossed the 8 in and it came out looking fresh and clean! The 10 was a little loose, so that's why I went through the effort with the 8. I received lots of complements. Dress was very comfortable. Fabric was heavy, but looked great. I'm renting another dress for an event next week! Thanks RTR!

Beautiful fit!

I loved this dress! It has a great weight to it and beautiful proportions. I was happy with the fit and the fact that I could wear a normal bra. I didn't end up wearing it because it was a bit too formal for the event but I would definitely rent it again.
