So elegant, felt like a princess all night at the Gala
I got a 10R and it fit perfectly. I'm 5'5" 155lbs. It would have been too long if I didn't wear ~2 1/2in heels (I am wearing the heels in the picture). It was so comfortable! Didn't want to take it off. I also rented a pair of earrings to go with the dress which was the best decision ever. Definitely recommend that, especially a style that gets suggested to you before checkout.

Beautiful fabric
This is a beautiful dress, but I went with my other option because I had gaping under my arms. I probably should have gotten a size smaller, but I typically wear this size from this designer. I would say it runs true to size for dresses in general, just large for this designer.

This dress made me feel like a princess!
Good overall. Longer than expected, had to buy higher heels. The arm holes ran larger than normal for me, if not cautious part of my brain showed (just wore matching bra)! It was perfect material, no wrinkling and a comfortable to wear. It also was very well lined, needing no slip or Spanx it feel perfectly!

An older gentleman in the lobby took one look at me and said "you look great in purple!"
I am curvy and have a large chest. The dress fit me like a glove. I loved it, got so many compliments on it, and would totally wear it again. It might be my best RTR dress yet! I am 5'4" and I was worried it would be too long but with heels it was perfect. Black tie ready!

Not as cute as I thought it would be
I have worn this designer before, so I felt confident in the fit. The color was a darker eggplant purple than I anticipated, which was fine, but the dress ended up looking ... kinda plain jane. The sequin detail at the shoulders is pretty, but the overall look was not what I hoped. I ended up in my backup style.

I wore this to chaperone a prom.
This dress is very pretty and fit my modesty requirements for chaperoning a prom. It was awfully long for someone who cannot wear heals, so I would order it in a short size if that's available. I would definitely rent this dress again, but in a smaller and shorter size.

This dress fit true to size, it was my backup though so o didn't end up wearing it. Also, I didn't have any spanx needed to smooth out everything it was showing.

This was one of my backup dresses, and it worked out perfectly. I'm short, so I probably shouldn't have gotten it in 'petite' instead of 'regular', but other than that, it fit just great!

Great dress! High quality fabric and fits well in all the right places.
This is a wonderful dress and it fits great! The fabric falls nicely and it is easy to walk in. No problems sitting or getting in/out of cars. I wore the petite size only because the dress is slightly long and I wanted to wear flats. If I had chosen to wear heels, the regular size would have been perfect.

Comfortable, amazing detail and fantastic color
This dress was amazing for my gala. I had so many compliments all night and felt so comfortable in it that I successfully danced the entire night away. I originally ordered a different dress but that was way too small. The stylist at RTR was so helpful and I was able to have my dress in hand the next morning before noon as promised.

Beautiful Performance Gown
This dress fit like it was made for me. The color was a stunning vivid purple that looked fabulous on stage. I wore it for a series of Holiday choral performances and the effect was classic, and elegant with just a bit of pop from the embellished shoulders. What really makes this gown is the exquisite fit.

This dress fit true to size. It was a little too loose around the armpit/breast area for my liking, but over all it was a great pick!

Formal fundraiser gala celebrating the American Muslim community
This was the smaller size (6) of the dress I wanted for this event. The actual size (8) was unavailable, but they still sent me this to see if it might fit as many people said the dress ran large. Fit great at my hips and waist but was too small on the bust so I couldn't make it work. That said, I adored the color, fabric and beadwork of this dress and was SO SAD to take it off!

Beautiful gown that looks like it came from the red carpet.
I am 5 feet 4 inches. I have a 36DD bust and I almost always wear a size 12. I rented a 12 regular and my backup was a 14 petite. I got the 14 just in case my bust wouldn't fit. I wore the 12 with a regular minimizer bra and it fit great with room to spare. You couldn't see my bra straps through the sleeves. This dress is a deep purple and the sleeves are purple also, not black like I thought from the photos. It fit true to size. I didn't even bother trying on the smaller size. It fell just above my feet in heels and there is a little tiny trail in the back which I wasn't aware of before I rented it. I really liked it though. I rented this gown for a black tie event with The Young Women's League. The dress was lined well and looked like a run-way gown. I was very satisfied with it.

So many compliments! Such a comfortable gown, perfect for a winter wedding!
I initially ordered the 6R and 8R because that's my general size renting/wearing normal clothes. Both fit length wise but were too tight for comfort. This gown ran like a wedding dress. I then ordered 10R & 12R- this was the 10! Length was perfect with heels, sleeves hung just right! I danced, sat for the ceremony and through dinner... so comfortable the entire time!! I received numerous compliments on this dress, wish I could wear it again!!

Saving this one for another event
This came as a back up courtesy of RTR's amazing customer service. I didn't wear it, but I will. It's a brilliant true purple color. Pretty simple sheath - would definitely need a shaper. It will definitely turn heads. Filing it away for the future!

Stunning color
I ordered a 10 long and a 12 regular. I went by the reviews and ordered the long because of the reviews. I was glad I got the regular. I worn 3 inch heels on the regular and it was perfect. The size 10 was a bit snug and way too long. Overall great dress.

The dress was perfect for a formal wedding! Beautiful color, more vibrant in person.
I ordered the 4P and the length was perfect for me to wear flats (I am 5'1''). I typically wear a 4. The backup 6P dress was too baggy. The seam at the waist is flattering, but does little to conceal any imperfections (ie- I just had a baby, so Spanx helped smooth everything out). I loved the fit and I got lots of compliments.

Simply elegant and so comfortable
I wore this to a gala and danced for hours. I was surprised I fit in the size 4. Normally I'm closer to a 6 or an 8, but the 4 worked for a last minute option. It's hard to see the beautiful detail on the shoulders, but it makes it that much more stunning. The other thing I was surprised about was how the waist of the dress hit mine. I have a very short torso and this can cause issues with dresses, but this worked perfectly. Definitely recommend getting this dress. I wanted to own this dress it was so beautiful and so comfortable.

Beautiful beading
This dress is true to size. It fit comfortably and was easy to sit in. My only regret is not ordering the 2L to wear. I'm 5'5" and the dress just barely touched the floor. Luckily, I had some flats to wear. I'd recommend the long for anyone 5'4" and taller who want to wear a heel with it. I loved the color!

So comfortable!
This dress is beautiful. It fit very well, but was a bit on the short side. I wore very small heels with it and it was still a bit higher than I would have liked. Being a size 20, I never thought I would be able to wear such a gorgeous dress but such a well know designer and be so comfortable. No spanx required!!!

Very comfortable, appropriate for the services and the reception
The top is much more intense than even I thought, but not in a bad way; definitely plenty of room in the bust, I'm a 40H in UK sizes and there was almost too much bust room for me!

A beautiful gown for fuller figures...
The gown is quite comfortable and the fabric is forgiving. Only real complaint is that there is not enough coverage between breast and underarm. So it's likely your bra will show if you have to raise your arm. For that reason, I don't have a photo. This size was too big for me which might explain the coverage issue...

I needed something modern, modest, formal, and colorful for one of my best friend'said Pakistani wedding. I wore this dress to her Walima on Sunday and received a ton on compliments! I paired it with a little extra sparkle.

This dress runs very long, true to size otherwise, I went with another dress option. This one doesn't have any WOW factor but is good if you need a conservative dress, the purple color is nice.

I wore this to a Gala at the MN Viking's US Bank Stadium (partly why I chose a purple dress!)
This was a great fit! I'm 5'2" and wore a 3"heel, the length of the 4P was perfect. I'm about 125lbs, 34C, with more of an athletic build. The dress drapes very nicely as the material is fairly heavy. You can wear a regular bra with this dress, the straps will not show through the beading on the sleeve.

Perfect dress for a "Purple Gala"
Fit true to size - I ordered the 10L and 12R, the 12 was a more comfortable fit, but a bit short. I wore flats, and it was perfect. Would have needed a long to wear heels (I'm 5'7"). Comfortable dress, beautiful detail on the shoulders. Great color - very unique among lots of black dresses!

Beautiful color and details!
Sorry for the not great photo - I didn't end up wearing this for my event but wanted to review it still as I really appreciated reviews with photos when making my selection! It was a bit more fitted than I like for my large hips and cushy belly. Would have worked with some shape wear. The shoulder detail was beautiful, but I have wide swimmer shoulders and it made me feel kind of like a linebacker. Would be best for someone with a straighter silhouette and maybe narrower shoulders. I am a pretty standard Sz 20, and the 22 was fitted (not too tight, just very fitted).

I don't have the photos yet but the dress was perfect for a black tie wedding in Italy's lake region
The fit was great, maybe a bit loose in the shoulders. I am 5'10" and maybe next time I would go with the long.

Beautiful Lines and details at the shoulder
Although I didn't wear it, it's a good choice in style for a larger busted person. The regular length in a 12 R was long enough to show the top of the strappy shoe I tried it on with. Top was full enough for my 36DD top without looking tight. The dress fir on the body was contoured....spanx would have helped a bit. The color is a deep purple, and the shoulder crystals and detail were beautiful. Very flattering if you have arms that are on the larger side.

My First time renting
I rented this dress for my prom I like the dress but maybe it was too formal for prom but it was nice. It was hard to get off but prom was a success. The dress ran smaller than dresses from Macy's or some where like that. Cause I usually wear a 16 or 14

This dress is gorgeous! I got compliments all night.
I went with the 2 because I preferred a slightly more fitted look; the 4 would have been fine but just liked the smaller size better. I wore the high waisted Spanx for a smooth look & it totally worked! It's definitely on the longer side, even with my heels. I had to hold it up a few times but not often enough to be annoying. The color is great, a nice change from all the black you can see at events.
