Gorgeous, classy- hugs all the right places!
I am usually a 4L and went with the backup 6L because it is tight. It is definitely stretchy and forgiving, but would suggest sizing up. I got so many compliments on this gown. It is such a classy choice and the back gives it that extra sexiness it needs. Definitely would rent again

SLAYED!!!!!
I cannot say enough about this dress. I felt like a QUEEN and out-dressed everyone there. I am still in the process of losing weight, and I am glad I changed my order from 8 with a 10 backup to 6 with an 8 backup. I ended up wearing the six and it was actually a little looser than I would like and they didn't have a 4 available for the evening. I used double-sided tape to make sure the shoulder stayed put and a strapless bra. I did not stop getting compliments all night. I am 5'1'', waist 28 and hips 41 and the dress was a little long, but my shoes were about 3 inches or so in length.

Stunning dress.
I used it as a Maid of Honor. Beautiful dress, true to size, lots of compliments. I got a 6R and 6L because I've seen lots of girls complaining that this dress with short sleeves runs short. Glad I did that. I used 3" covered heels and the regular dress was just perfect. I didn't even try on the long one. I am 5'6.

This dress was absolutely stunning! Glamorous, classy and beautiful.
It fit perfectly and showed off my curves without being too revealing. The open back was the perfect added detail. This dress was so comfortable for dancing too. Even though this was a long, it was just a little short so I couldn't wear heels.

Beautiful dress! Only problem I had was that I ordered a Long and it was shorter than the Regular. Also, my friend ordered the same size from stores and it was much longer and draped on the floor

Fabulous!
I would say the fit is true to size, I ended up wearing the larger size that was sent because I wish I would have trusted the reviews and ordered the long version. So trust me when I say, if you are 5'6" or taller, order the long! But even despite it being a tad short, it was perfect and I received numerous compliments :) I will definitely rent again!!

I wore this to a New Year's Eve wedding. I looked great, most importantly I felt great.
I'm 5-8, 150lbs. Average build I ordered a size 8L and it was a little larger than I liked. I would have ordered a 6L if it were available. If you range between two sizes like myself, I would choose the smaller size.

Beautiful dress! Absolutely perfect for my engagement photos!
I ordered a 6R only because my normal size was taken. I am a 0/2 in dresses, and the 6 was pretty baggy, so I would say that dress runs very true to size. It's also very stretchy and form fitting. I will say that I have very short legs, and this dress was a little too short for my liking. I would order a Long regardless of your height, especially if you will be wearing heels. I rented this gown for my engagement photos, so the sizing and length issue wasn't a huge problem. Bottom line, LOVED this dress for my photos... it caught the light perfectly and my fiance was floored when I stepped out in it! RTR customer service was also EXCELLENT at correcting an issue with my order. This was my first, and definitely not my last, renting experience with RTR and I am SO happy with everything -- I can't wait to rent again!

Ended up going with my backup (sorry for the poor lighting, needed to share how it fit on me though)
Turns out I need a dress with more structure to it, this dress is made of a stretchy material and it just stretches over whatever you have - and it really did my body no favors. I'm pretty busty with a wide chest and this made me look and feel straight up and down, I kept re-trying it on in hopes that it'd change! I will say there are ways I could stand to make the dress look flattering, but chances are I won't be able to pose all night and went with another dress I ordered. I could wear the 2 or the 4 since they were stretchy, it just depends on how tight you want your dress (note: the tighter the dress does not mean it will hold you in - it'll just stretch tighter around your body which may or may not be a plus!).

Wore for my New Years Wedding. PERFECT! Everyone was blown away! Reflects well in all lighting!
Fit was perfect, I am 5'1, 145lbs, 36ddd, and it was amazing. I didn't have to wear a bra either. Nothing felt too tight. I had to find a shorter heel due to the length, I wish I had reserved the long, but it really worked out because I was able to find the perfect shoe! The dress didn't feel heavy, and I thought it would be because I tried on a couple other B.M. dresses before making this selection. It was comfy and I did not want to take it off. I'm looking forward to renting another gown soon! If you want glam, classic beauty, or the wow factor, this is you dress in any color!

A+ customer service!
What an amazing fit! I do think it ran a bit large (to give you an idea, I'm 5'4", 150lb and have very broad shoulders) and fit into the 6 with a little room - but, very flattering and wiggle room if you aren't sure on sizing. Would definitely snag again, it's stunning in personal

Gorgeous!
Wore this to the Alex's Lemonade Foundation, Lemon Ball which is a "yellow" tie formal event. This dress is a show stopper. I typically wear a 6 but could have worn a 4. The dress seemed to grow by the end of the night. Think I might have ordered a long also. (Especially if I sized down) but beautiful, standout dress. Got lots of compliments all night!!

I FELT LIKE A CELEBRITY!
Love love love this dress. Wore this to a college medical gala. Rented a 0R and 2R. Didn't even need to try on the 2 as the 0 had wiggle room in it as well. I'm 5'1 and have a curvy shape around my hips and legs that I am very insecure about. The dress completely hid it and made it look 100x better than I would have imagined. The length was perfect with 4inch heels and had a cute little train. Body con dresses and I never mix but this time, I am completely in awe. I don't want to return it!!! Definitely renting again from RTR.

Gorgeous in person
The dress is a beautiful true gold color. It sparkles in every angle of light. I wore this to a formal Mardi Gras ball & had manyyy complements on my gown. I ordered an 8L & 6L--normally I wear an 8 but it was stretchy so the 6 hugged every curve like a personally fitted gown. It was superb! I'm 10 inches smaller in my waist versus my hips/bust so I was shocked at how well it fit without pinning the sides. Due to the stretchy material I wold go a size down AND if you're 5'6" or taller get a LONG! I had to wear small 3 inch heel so my dress didn't look silly short on me. I'm 5'8" and if you're taller I would recommend grabbing a second option(different style dress) to make sure the long still isn't too short :)

Show Stopper!!
I'm 5'3 and 150 lbs. Usually I wear a size 8, but I was able to wear the 6 with room to spare in the waist & bust area. Even though I'm short the length of the dress was perfect with heels on.

LOVE this dress!! Not only is it gorgeous--it's also super comfortable, sexy, and classy.
I'm only 5 feet tall and typically wears a size 6 and petit in gowns/pants/jeans but I ordered a 4R and 8R (reserve) as those were the only size available at the time I needed the dress. I ended up wearing the 4R as it was a better fit due to the open back; I was afraid the shoulders would slide off had I gone with the bigger size. Overall the 4R was a perfect fit, I paired it with 4" heels and the dress just barely grazed the floor. I was completely comfortable in it all evening and had a great time on the dance floor as well. I kept receiving compliments all night long so I highly recommend this dress!

Gorgeous dress! Felt like an Oscar winner
I wore this to a Mardi Gras ball and I got tons of compliments on it. Believe the reviews when they say it's short though, I wore the 8R because they didn't have the 8L available, and I ended up tugging it down even with flats on. The dress itself is gorgeous and the back is my favorite part. I have a very small chest so I went bra-less, but a plunge-back or backless would have worked. I did feel like it stretched out a bit by the end of the night. Overall, very happy with this gown and RTR!

I was a little hesitant about renting this dress, as a petite size was not available. I'm just barely 5'1, but I couldn't have asked for a more perfect length. That being said, if you're any taller than 5'4 or 5'5, I would suggest renting in a long size. Overall fit was slightly larger than I had anticipated. I normally am a size 6, but the 4 was perfect. So if you're between two sizes, the smaller size might be the way to go. Overall, the dress was beautiful (despite me seeing 4 others wearing it). Will definitely rent from RTR again!

A stunning gown- I was the center of attention all night long!
I'm 5'10" and the long was at the floor with flats on, which was fine since I wasn't wearing heels. The 4L was out of stock and may have fit better, but the 6L was still flattering and comfortable.

Dress was stunning; received many compliments!!
I wore this to the Seabee Ball with my husband. I was 20 weeks (5months) pregnant and wasn't too tight at all! Fit like a dream and even wore a bra! The only downside was that even though I ordered it in Long; it was still too short AND I wore flats!! Pretty bummed about that, but from the ankles up it was nice!

I got this dress for my very first pageant, the Miss Black and Gold 2016 pageant.
The dress was everything I expected when I received it, and it fit my body beautifully. Unfortunately though, it was very short on me. It could me tugged down to cover my ankles but the moment I raised my arms at all it became highwatered. Could not wear for my pageant because I'd be in heels and need arm movement. (Also the sleeves are incredibly itchy due to the sequins)

perfect
It was an absolutely gorgeous dress. I felt beautiful all night. It is very flattering for my figure and falls really nicely on the waist, hips, arms and back. It fit just right everywhere. The arms did not fall off my shoulders. I'm 5'7" and ordered a regular length but it was not long enough to fall to the ground. I recommend ordering the 14L. I would rent it again in a heartbeat.

I rented this for a bridesmaid dress and it was pretty dang close to perfect.
The dress hugs tight, but it not too unforgiving. Spanx help though. I'm short, so I was worried about the length, but with heels, the regular was fine. Overall, it's a winner! Gots tons of compliments all night!

I usually wear a 4 or 6 but those sizes weren't available. The 8 was not as form fitting but was still complimentary to my figure. The dress was a show shopper. You will get so many compliments!

Spectacular Prom Night
Loved the dress more than I thought I would. I rented it for my Senior prom and our theme was the Great Gatsby! A lot of people told me that my bread was beautiful and it sure made me feel beautiful too! I'm only 5'3 and ordered the 12L Bc other reviews said that the regular was a little short, so with 4 inch heels the L fit perfect!

This dress photographed SO well! I am so glad I ordered it for our engagement pictures!
Don't even hesitate... Get the LONG. Unless you're under 5'3 this dress will be too short in regular. I went shoeless for our Photoshoot and loved the way the long laid on the ground. I could have also worn heals and it would have been fine! I'm around 5'4-5'5. It has a tight fit around every part of your body from booty upward but still comfy when sitting or riding in the car! I ordered the 4R and 6L and both fit fine and similarly other than the length. My bust is a 34DDD and the chest area fit great in both the 4 and 6!

Wore this for my 30th Birthday party. True to size except for the length. I am 5'6 and i think it was a tad short considering. I would go for the long if you are5'5 and above and plan on wearing heels. Overall, I danced all night and it was so comfy and still glamorous. As I am plus size, I was nervous about it but it truly complimented my body type. Highly recommend.
