Pretty dress, VERY long waist
Cute dress! I loved the back. It was definitely a tighter fit, but still fit fine. The waist was longer than other dresses, so it was slightly bunched on me. But I could still wear it without a problem!

Beautiful, elegant, fun!
This dress is EVERYTHING. If you love to dance at a wedding or party, you need to have it. I normally wear a Size 2 or 4 and this fit me perfectly. I am small chested so keep that in mind. I'm 5'6 and 135 lean/muscular frame and this dress made me feel especially womanly. When I spun around the dance floor, I could hear the gasps of enjoyment of those watching. I received compliments from both men and women. This is a hit. Dress it up with sparkly shoes and jewelry and you are all set!

Stunning dress, got a lot of compliments on it and felt classy! Amazing if you are a tall, slim pear
This dress was a stunner. Fit me like a glove, the neckline was beautiful and the back was sooo pretty! The dropped waist was really flattering on a tall pear. Exposed zipper runs the whole length of the dress, which makes it look modern despite the retro feel of the back ruffle. The "ruffle" (which was way prettier than it sounds) made the dress nice and heavy (which was great as it kept it flowing nicely and made it look more expensive). The dress I received personally was a little out of shape (the horsehair in the edges were a bit wonky and the back of the bodice had a little wrinkle in it) but it was not really noticeable to other people and I did not even care! Size 4 fit me well, definitely true to size (had I been a pound or two heavier it would have been a little uncomfortable). A lovely dress, totally wanted to keep 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!

Made for dancing!
I absolutely adored this dress and can't wait to have a reason to rent it again. The dress is classic, but with plenty of details to jazz it up - the bustle, the low back and the exposed gold zipper. Plus it twirls like to you wouldn't believe (highly recommend shorts if expecting to twirl a lot)! I have never gotten so many compliments on an LBD before, including one from a celebrity who couldn't believe it was RTR! I ordered both the 2 and the 0, and ended up going with the 0 since I was going to be dancing. The 0 was definitely tighter on top, but the straps and arm holes on the 2 felt just a little baggy. I paired it with the gold leaf headwrap, gold art deco bracelet, and the Marchesa Hummingbird earrings and it made for one fantastic outfit. Looking forward to wearing again!

Beautiful!
Pros: AMAZING DRESS. Classy, sexy, great! Cons: It did not arrive before my event. I would recommend ordering for it to be delivered AT LEAST 2 days in advance. RTR did promise a full refund at least. Once I did try it on I never wanted to take it off again. P.s. I am a 32DDD and I fit into a 4 without a bra, yay! :)

I loved this dress! I loved the bottom perfect for twirling on the dance floor
It fit true to size. I could wear a normal bra with the dress but had to keep an eye on the straps they would peek out in the back. It is snug at the waist but still very comfortable. I'd rent it again

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!

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.

Felt Pretty, Not like a Rockstar
This dress is very beautiful. It's hard to tell from the photo, but it does fit wearing a regular bra or strapless bra - I had ordered a low back extender just in case, but didn't need it. I wore it with red heels, which were the star! Some RTR dresses make me feel WOW! This one made me feel REALLY NICE. My bra size is a 34DDD and this is a safe bet for larger chested ladies. I probably will order it again only as a back-up dress, since I know it fits and looks good.

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!

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.

Beautiful Dress
Absolutely beautiful dress. I felt wonderful in it. The material is a little heavier, but overall very comfortable to wear. Only complaint was that the shoulder straps were just a little long. When standing it wasn't a problem, but when sitting they would fall off my shoulder. Received so many compliments on the dress. Would rent again.

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!

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!!!

I wore this as my bridesmaid dress in a wedding
This dress is better than your average LBD and perfect for special events. The 'bustle' in the back is a nice surprise, but not an overwhelming feature. The fit is true to size. I ordered a size up assuming this would run small like most designers...it didn't. Although the dress was a little large, it didn't look awkward at all. It was also super comfortable so I would definitely rent this again :)

Unique
The dress was a really unique rendition of the LBD. The back was really nice..and different. Really pretty dress. Fit me perfectly. I wore it for an April wedding and thought the dress material was a little thing for how warm it was..but I still loved it. I felt fancy and beautiful.

I wore this to a black and white New Years Eve party. The fabric is heavy but flowing with a like full skirt, not just your typical LBD. It was so much fun to dance in and twirl. You can also pair it with almost anything. I would rent it again.

Beautiful dress, beautiful night!
The dress was gorgeous - I got tons of compliments - but it was a little snug around the midsection and some of the fabric bunched because I have a small torso. Other than that, it was class and sass combined and I had a very pleasant rental experience.

Beautiful, comfortable, flattering
I absolutely love this dress and wanted to keep it forever and never take it off, but here are a few things I noticed about it: 1. The back zipper goes all the way down. Not really an issue - just a surprise. 2. Very full skirt. Twirled in it like a little girl. Felt like a princess. Loved it. 3. I thought it ran a little large, but I have a very small rib cage. Plenty of room at the bust for fuller breasts, though (I'm a D cup). 4. Can wear a regular bra. The back is low, but not so low that it would expose your bra. The shoulder straps are a little wide-set for me, so I had to place my bra carefully - there was nothing to hold the bra straps beneath the shoulder straps. 5. Long. The 4 was knee length on me and I'm leggy for my height - I have a 35" inseam. 6. Slightly long in the torso. Hit me a little below my natural waist - this might be an issue if you are particularly short torso'ed. 7. Zipper will not stay up. Repeat: Zipper. Will. NOT. Stay. Up. It only unzips a little, but that was annoying. I could hear it unzip, too. There were no hooks at the top of the zipper, like some dresses, to keep this from happening. ANNOYING. 8. Skirt is weird to sit on. I wore this to a funeral and there was a lot of sitting on some not so comfortable seats. The skirt made it less comfortable. This dress is definitely more for standing around and looking fabulous (or dancing! Yay twirls!) than for sitting.

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!

Loved dancing in this dress.
I thought the fit was perfect. I loved the back, and dancing was so much fun in it. I wish it was a little more glam in the front though. For size, I am in between a 2 and 4. I am 34B, weigh about 128 with athletic frame. I could have worn the 2 with no bra, but I thought after all the eating and drinking and for comfort - I stuck with the 4 and wore a good bra.

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!

Great fitting black dress--classy and fun
First RTR dress and I couldn't be happier. It fit perfectly -- very fitted on top and full skirt on the bottom. The skirt had that nice bustle detail without making you look big. Overall a great choice.

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.

When you work in a physical job it's fun to have people see you dressed up for a change.
Very comfortable dress, different than the average LBD. I did tack up the shoulders due to my short waisted frame.

Great dancing dress with a classy lady like length!
I'm 5'7 135lbs and usually a size 4 dress. I wore a size 4 and it fit perfectly as I expected a size 4 to fit. I can see how the torso could be a bit long for petite ladies but this one fit me almost perfect. I wore it with a chevron fringe jacket so i didn't pay much attention to the small amount of bunching it may have done while under my jacket. I loved the back detail but didn't want to sit on it since I thought it might crimp what ever material was keeping the material loosely curved in the back. Fun for dancing as it spins all the way out, this is a second reason to wear shorty panties. I did also notice the material was somewhat worn on the bottom half of the dress but if it's past dusk or you'r not right on it you can hardly tell. Great dress, would rent it again, sorta want one for myself!
