The dress was an amazing color w my medium skin color. It was also very comfy to wear for hours!
I'm 5'3 and the regular size came to my ankles which made wearing a low heel perfect. The dress was very forgiving for being chubby and the cut on top worked perfectly for a little arm coverage. No room for a necklace which made accessorizing easier. Very comfortable dress to wear for over 6 hours and got compliments from everyone. Would love to wear again if everyone hadn't already seen it!

Wow dress
This dress fit perfectly. I attended a ball with my dad and when he saw me in the dress, he went "wow...beautiful". That did it for me. The size was perfect, and it hugged me in the right places. Be ready to receive tons of compliments.

Beautiful gown, but not for me.
This dress is stunning, it just didn't fit my shape. I'm really curvy. but... I appreciate that I at least got to try on something so pretty thanks to RTR.

This gown was so flattering and beautiful! I was very happy with the color & fit.
Runs true to size and is very flattering! Zipper goes all the way up so you'll need some help getting it zipped up. Very lovely!

I rented this dress for my mothers surprise party. I got so many compliments!
Not true to size. I normally wear a 16 but I had to wear the 18. The dress was lovely though. Not heavy at all

Black tie night at the Field Museum
Had an awesome time in this dress! Fit perfectly and was so comfy - not too heavy either! I was worried it would be with all the sequins but I wore it and danced all night.

Look out Broadway!
This dress was a show stopper. I received countless compliments throughout the evening and from pictures. It's very comfy and the roushing was a bonus! The shoulders were a little snug, I would have like to have true off the shoulder style. The back zipper bunched a little from being too large but no one seemed to notice. It's the perfect combination of comfort, confidence and sparkle.

Great color, sexy fit.... Cinderella for the night!
I am 5'7" and 205lbs. I ordered the 18L and the 16L as the back up. The length was perfect with my 3 inch heels. The 18L was too big, it had no shape and it looked like a smock. The 16L gave the snug fit I wanted and I loved my curves in it. You will need a strapless bra with this dress because if you wear a regular bra the strap will show depending how you move your arm. I also used a spank like undergarment to smooth me out. Comfortable to wear but beware of the sequins and how you handle the dress. The sequins can get under your nail and they're sharp. Beautiful dress, beautiful color, tons of compliments. Thanks RTR!

The dress looked beautiful!
I rented this dress for my cousin for her High School formal. The dress we originally rented was a lot less glamours b/c she's in high school but RTR never sent the original just the two back up options. She looked amazing and danced the night away! She is 16, 5'10'' and top heavy, she wore a strapless bra and felt comfortable the entire night.

My daughter's dress was unique in a room of standard prom dresses.
Rented this for my daughter for her formal Jr/Sr Dinner. She is 5'1" and weighs 100lbs. In the picture, she is holding up the dress so her shoes showed, but it touches the ground. She should have had petite, but it wasn't available. The zipper puckered on the 0R at the bottom, so she wore the 2R backup. If she had the petite, it would have been perfect. With 3" heels, the R was fine. She received many complements and said the dress was comfortable all night.

Flawless from Start to Finish
This was my first RTR purchase and I would be remiss if I didn't take time to write this review. This was not my first choice but my hesitation and procrastination forced me to pick this dress and I was exceptionally pleased. The customer service, the fit, the look, the COST were all flawless. I only gave it 4 stars because it wasn't as long as I hoped and I'm 5'9. The zipper is also very delicate(borderline flimsy) and someone else MUST be around when you get dressed. Many compliments throughout the night and I would definitely rent from RTR again. FYI... You MUST go up one size.

I wore this to the White House Correspondents Dinner in DC. Was perfect for the occasion!
I loved this gown. I do recommend spanx if you have unforgiving curves like me. With spanx - it was stunning! I will say it was a bit short in the front, suggest a lower heel (2-3 inches).

The sparkle and ruching was beautiful!
I ordered this dress for a banquet and was complimented all night long, the fit was beautiful, it ruched in all the right places and the sparkle was perfect. My advise would be to be careful if you are as large busted as myself, with a J cup I have to wear a full cup bra and that tended to want to peek-a-boo under the armpit where the dress dips a bit (so you don't rub) which was something I was very conscious about. It is one of my biggest pet peeves to have your undergarments showing especially since I wore a lavender bra (STUPID!). This also wasn't ideal for my height, I am 5'7 and thought the long would be perfect plus heels...I had to switch my favorite pumps for my black kitten heels because the dress would have been too short otherwise. Honestly though, you can't really go wrong in this dress, it is beautiful, has lots of give and was very complimenting to my full figure. <3

Gorgeous, unique color. Dress is very formal, flattering, but still somewhat conservative!
Does pucker a bit in the back at the zipper. 4R was slightly long, even with 4 inch heels (I am 5'1"). Very flattering, and not at all itchy with the sequins.

Never wore it.
This dress was lovely but it was much too short. It didn't even cover the tops of my feet with flats on let alone with heels I'm 5'6". I was very disappointed as I really wanted to wear this one.

Amazing Dress for an Amazing Night!!!!
Absolutely perfect dress for a Brooklyn wedding. I am only 5 feet tall and was worried this would be too long. The fit was perfect ( with heels, of course)! Material was a little stretchy and hugged in all the right places. Would absolutely recommend, received soooo many compliments!

Gorgeous Stunner of a dress!
This dress is great for hourglass figures. You can wear a regular bra with it and the rouching in the stomach helps to cover larger stomach areas. The color is a beautiful burgundy and the dress is comfortable everywhere except a little scratchy under the arms.

subdued red colored sequin dress - sophisticated - fit like a glove. length was good.
with a 2"-3" heel - it would work out. felt like the neckline was swallowing me up a bit, but minor. spanx is needed to hide those midsection areas. definite hour-glass shape to the dress - its nice, one can breath in the dress, move around without worry.

Gorgeous dress. Compliments all night and I felt like a sales rep for RTR - and a princess for once!! So many had not heard of RTR but are going to try it now because of this dress. Perfect fit, so comfortable and gorgeous. I wore to my husbands annual Christmas Party and could not have chosen better!!

Attention: Plus sized gals!
This gown fits and wears beautifully. The color is beautiful and is a real eye catcher. The gown is sexy while still maintaining modesty. It fits true to size and is figure flattering. I am only 5'1.5 and it hit me perfectly wearing a 3 inch heel. If you are over I'd say 5'5 you may want to order the long version of this gown. Particularly if you are wearing a high heel. Match with a matte red lip and dare them not to stare!

Knockout red! You will be noticed for sure!
Although the shoulder straps are something to get used to, i was comfortable all night in this gorgeous gown! like any other sequin gown it will scratch up your arms a little but beauty is pain right? This was sent to me as a back-up dress and I ended up loving it more than the dress I was going to rent. Cant go wrong with Badgley Mischka and RTR! <3

Stunning dress - felt like Jessica Rabbit.
I don't even know how to describe how absolutely fabulous I felt in this dress. Although it was a bit long and I had to hem with fashion tape (I'm quite short so I knew this would be a thing), it was absolutely fantastic beyond that. I did have to use fashion tape to hold the one shoulder strap to my shoulder as I had read from other women in the reviews but this was easy and made it comfortable to wear the dress all night long. I received so many compliments in this dress I could not believe it. My hair actually matched the dress almost 100% perfectly and I felt like a sexy Jessica Rabbit the entire night. Would absolutely recommend anyone to rent it and would rent again myself if another event came up.

Gorgeous dress
I usually rent Badgley Mischka gowns because they fit my curvy figure really well. This one ran a bit tighter than the other sequined ones I've rented on the past. I am 5' 1" tall and my 3 inch heels were perfect. The dress just skimmed my toes and the little back train just hit the floor. So I didn't have to lift it up as much as I usually do. The color is beautiful. The matte sequins were surprisingly elegant. I'd rent again.

Classy and flattering
I rented this dress for Barrister's Ball (aka Law Prom), and I loved it. I got compliments all night on the fit, design, and color; it was a hit! It was also very comfortable, because it stretches quite a bit. I did have to wear spanx just because it does hug every single curve, but it was worth it. The only problem I had was with the top of the dress; the "sleeves" will slide up if you move your arms a lot (which made it hard to dance), but it wasn't TOO bothersome. I'm also glad I got the long instead of regular, because the hem hit the ground perfectly in my 4-inch heels. Overall, great dress for a formal event!

I kept getting compliments on this dress all night long!
Fits fairly true to size. Had a tiny bit of puffing in the lower back, but nothing super obvious. I am 5'1" and wore it with very tall heels (about 4-5in). With the high heels I didn't have to tape the length. Sequins were not uncomfortable at all. Definitely recommend!

I wore this dress to the opening night of a Broadway show. I got so many compliments!
I sized up to the 18, even though I usually wear a 16. The smaller dress was too tight in places and the 18, while definitely loose, was much more comfortable.

Perfect for the evening
I absolutely loved this dress. The sequins weren't too itchy and it was insanely comfortable for the whole night. The only downside is that I couldn't wear heels since I wasn't able to order the longer length option. I'm 5'7" and the regular length juuuust touched the ground for me. However I would suggest this dress for anyone.

Fit was great and hung nicely. I felt the dress ran very true to size. I agree with other reviews that tummy control is necessity (if you have that problem), but I received many compliments and felt beautiful!

This dress is absolutely GORGEOUS!!
I would say that it runs somewhat true to size... I'm usually a size 4 in dresses but I got a 6, just in case, since I am a little curvier in the hips. I wore this to my prom and it was very comfortable even through the dancing! Definitely a 5 star!
