Loved the dress and the back perfect as well. So many compliments.
I wish I would have gone with the long, but regular worked ok. The material had a little stretch which was great. My hair kept getting caught in the dress, so go for an up do.

The new Chicago store is lovely! My stylist, Michael, who was fabulous, found this dress for me.
This dress is gorgeous. I felt so glamorous wearing it and received tons of compliments. It was comfortable but quite form fitting so I definitely needed spanx!

I felt so glamorous!!
I have nothing but great things to say about this dress! I wore it for a 1940's themed benefit and it was perfect! I lost count of the compliments I received from friends and complete strangers. It made me feel so beautiful! The dress was the perfect length and fit well everywhere else. I got one of those low-back bra straps and it worked perfect for the low back of the dress and was only a few bucks online. This dress was overnighted to me to replace a mistaken order and I could't be more thrilled with what I got. The customer service stylists that helped me were amazing!! I would recommend this website to anybody, and I did all night at my event:)

This periwinkle dress is very classy, simple and elegant. It was perfect for prom & admired by all!
I chose to go bra-less because the back of the dress has a large droop. Even though a sequence texture, it did not snag. It is long so you may have to lift the dress at times, but then you can show off some hot shoes!

The Best. Dress. Ever.
I was running around all night chairing a gala and got nothing but compliments & comfort. I'm doing everything in my power to purchase it now. :) (no bras or only backless bras allowed with this one fyi.)

The gala was nice. Too bad I didn't get to wear this dress.
It's very shiny. Almost too shiny. It also hugs every curve, including the lumps and bumps. I ordered the long because I'm considered tall. It was too short. I think it was mislabeled. Although I could have made the dress work with Spanx, it was too short. Way too short.

Loved this dress!
Very form fitting and clings to your body. I wore a tummy control underneath because I can eat something and look three months pregnant, and it definitely helped as this was very form fitting in the mid section.

It felt so good to look so glamorous! This dress will turn heads.
Fits like a glove. It's a little on the heavy side due to the sequins but so incredibly comfortable. I could dance and look elegant all night long. If you're doing the long, definitely get yourself some high heels. Would buy this dress if I could and wear it all the time.

Stylist Review!
This dress will definitely turn heads. With the sparkle, I felt stylish and elegant. It was a little fitted but the fabric did have stretch. Since it had stretch, the size 0 was perfect for me. I loved how the front was classy with the high neckline, but you still could show skin with the exposed back. It was a bit long on me due to my height, but with higher heels it would have been fine.

Way prettier in person!
I was worried this was going to look matronly - I normally opt for sleeveless or strapless - but this was drop dead gorgeous and I got compliments all night. The back is beautiful (I wish I had gotten a picture of it!), though you will need a Nubra or something similar because it is very low. The dress was very comfortable for something so pretty, and it was also very light (less than 2 pounds). The sequins did scratch the underside of my arms a bit, but you might be able to help that with Bodyglide or something like that. Don't be afraid of the short sleeves, ladies!

Sparkly stunner
This was my second choice dress. It is a beautiful steel blue with a touch of Spandex to give it some stretch. It requires a backless or adhesive bra. I loved how it looked on, but I preferred the other dress in my order.

Such a beautiful dress. The color is fabulous, fit well, and so comfortable and easy to wear. Had to get a long-line strapless bra with a low back so that the hooks didn't show. I got so many compliments and felt so chic. Perfect!

The dress was great, but if your bust is DD+ wear the dress backwards.
It was a nice fit, definitely body hugging.

I felt like the Belle of the Ball!
I was very anxious about getting the dress on time, since it was being delivered the night before my event, but RTR delivered exactly when they said they would. I ordered the 8R and the 10R, since other women advised to order up for the back-up size if you have an hourglass figure, but the 10R was way too big. The 8 fit me like a glove and was absolutely stunning in person. It was a little loose at the shoulders, but I think that was due to the dress style with the open back. It was sexy, but still very classy, and a huge hit with everyone at the gala. I have a full chest, so I wore a backless, strapless bra, which worked perfectly. I had 5" heels on, and they made the gown the perfect length (It was much too long for my 5'4" frame without shoes). The dress was very easy to move and dance in, the only con was that my upward arm movement was somewhat restricted. All in all, this was a fantastic dress and a great first RTR experience!

This dress is beautiful and I did try it on backwards as someone suggested.
First I will say I got this as a back-up after my original dress was unavailable. This dress is beautiful and I did try it on backwards as someone suggested. My problem area is my belly and it really showed this off, even with spanx it didn't look great. And it was a little tight in the arms. It is a gorgeous dress and my friend tried it on and it looked great on her, she is about 3 sizes smaller than me. So I would be weary if you have a belly or any sort of gut you don't won't showing. It's possible if available I might rent this dress in a bigger size.

I love everything about this dress. It is comfortable, sexy, and glamorous!
The fit of the dress was just right. I'm 6 feet tall and was so happy to have a dress that was actually long enough (I ordered the TALL size). Great for dancing and I received compliments all night. The dress also photographs beautifully. CON: The dress smelled. I aired it out for a few days and Febreezed it....but was disappointed that it did not arrive fresh!

I'm pretty sure you can see from the photo what makes this dress amazing!
This dress fit like a glove, but was stretchy and forgiving. I wanted something really special for my family session this year, and this dress knocked it out of the park. It photographs even better than it looks in person. I would recommend this dress to anyone that wants to wow!

Beautiful dress!
I wore the 4R, my backup size was the 2R. The 2R was significantly shorter than the 4R. Without any shoes on the dress wasn't event touching the ground and i'm 5'5". The 4R fit perfectly with a decent size heel and the dress was the right length.. I wore a sticky bra but the fabric is thick enough that you do not have to. I received compliments all night, great dress!

Absolutely loved this dress and got several compliments throughout the night.
I usually wear an 8R, but I got a 6 as my backup size and ended up wearing the 6 instead. The fabric is pretty stretchy so the 6 not only fit, but it was still super comfortable. The 8 felt too big though. The only downside to this dress is that the sequins poke your underarms a bit, but I stopped noticing after a while.

This is I think the only formal, designer dress I have ever worn that fit true to size. It has a bit of a train, which was fabulous. It was very comfortable.

Again, so many complements on my RTRW gown. At 5'6" I wish I would have ordered a long.
I would say it runs just a bit large. Very flattering and forgiving dress.

Loved the sparkle and color
I rented this dress to wear to shoot me and my son's Christmas cards. It was exactly the "glam" look I was going for. I love the way this dress photographed! The only con is it does hug EVERY curve so I felt a little self conscious about my belly. Spanx fixed that problem though! I say order a size up.

So glamorous!
I wore this dress for a fancy Anniversary night on the town in Vegas! I got so many compliments and felt comfortable but very elegant. The front is more covered due to the higher neckline, but the low back and slinky cut make it feel sexy. The description says you can't wear a bra because the back is too low, but I was able to wear a regular bra, pulled down further. The cut was body skimming but still forgiving and very stretchy.

Super comfortable dress! I absolutely LOVED wearing it, and I got tons of compliments!
This dress fits like a glove - it is slightly stretchy, so it conforms to your body's curves. The color is a silver/blue and stands out beautifully in a room full of black tuxedos and black dresses. I did not wear a bra with the dress as I am fairly small on top. This was a good option. The 2L was long enough for me to wear 4" heels and still have it hit the floor nicely - and I am 5'9"

This dress was fantastic! I was dreading wearing formal wear just six months after having a baby, but this dress managed to show off the curves and hide the flaws. The fabric was stretchy and forgiving, which was great. It was also still professional (I wore it to a work event) without looking dowdy. I would highly recommend. In fact, I'm considering getting the shorter version of this for my next cocktail event.

Beyond Glam
I felt so great in this dress, super comfy, but because this was for a formal wedding, I went with a different dress. (I felt this was too flashy/pagent-y to be appropriate.) Only con was this tag that kept flopping out from the cowl part of the back- a little fashion tape would be an easy fix to that though!

SO many compliments -- was different from every other gown. Few things to keep in mind...
I wore this for a Miss Virginia Preliminary pageant so I will go into EVERY detail. There are 2 cons that are EASILY AVOIDABLE: - I am 5' 3" and you MUST get a long if you plan on wearing any type of heel. -This dress shows EVERY curve including my little tummy pouch from stress & holiday snacking. Things I loved: -The fit was just gorgeous -I had so many compliments on the back and that is what really made the dress -It was so different from every other evening gown in the pageant. I fit in a 6 but I preferred the 8 because of the extra comfort. You will not regret going up a size. -You will want to wear a bra -- especially a sticky one because of the back -It was surprisingly NOT itchy for being sequin -- this was so important for me!

We went to the Vienna Philharmonic Ball. Everything was amazing. The 3 of us rented from RTR
We went to the showroom room on 18th Street. Picking out the gowns was so much fun. The only negative is once you get the gowns and try them on, the staff is not helpful. It feels like they don't want to be bothered with you anymore. But we got stuck in Vienna because the blizzard on the east coast and they staff couldn't be nicer that we returned the dress late.

I wore this to a ball. I'm 5'10" and wore low heels. Length was perfect for dancing. Fit perfect!
Not only did I feel like the belle of the ball, but the dress was comfortable enough to all me to dance the night away with my 2-year-old daughter. This was my first experience "renting the runway" and I will definitely come back for more! I only wish I could keep this dress forever!

I wore this gown for a Mardi Gras Ball. The dress was the perfect choice for looks and function.
Bottom Line: I loved this dress and highly recommend it. Beyond the great style, the dress turned out to be perfect for a couple of reasons I did not consider when I ordered it. 1. It travels well. I had to fly with the dress and it came out of the bag ready to go. My backup would have needed steaming. 2. It has a good amount of stretch/is comfortable. I was able to dance, walk over a mile, and move through a huge crowd. Through all that, I did not feel restricted or that the dress was losing it's shape. There were some very small drawbacks but they are very minor compared to how much I enjoyed this dress. 1. I am a curvy gal and did need Spanks. The dress is form fitting and I felt a little self-conscious of my tummy area. 2. If you must have a bra you will need to find one to fit the low back this dress. I went without one because I didn't have time to go find one but would not have minded a little more support. 3. It is sequined so you have to be careful not to snag it. Mine came with a few lose sequins and some stray threads but they were not noticeable. Last, the capped sleeves make it a little tough to raise your arms. This was annoying for bead catching at Mardi Gras but not a significant drawback. In the end, I'm very happy with how the whole process with RTR has gone. I will absolutely do it again.
