True to size and comfortable to wear. Compliments all night long.

My original pick was unavailable to ship and my backy up was way too long. They shipped this dress overnight and it fit perfectly. I wore this dress to a Debutant formal ball. The color (shiny midnight blue) and style were great for the event.

I received many compliments on this dress! My husband loved it and I felt beautiful wearing it!

It fits on the tighter side with no stretch. I chose to go braless as there was enough support once it was zipped up.

Not a great fit

The cut of the top just didn’t work for me. I have a large chest and the coverage wasn’t what I was hope for. This would look great on someone with a smaller chest.

Omg. So amazing.

This dress was absolutely amazing. The only reason this doesn't have 5 stars is because there wasn't a petite version available. Also didn't realize when I picked it out that under the ruffle there is a slit but was actually thankful for it when I sat down. Felt like a million bucks. So many compliments all night. Will totally be using RTR in the future. Best first experience with a company ever.

Gorgeous and elegant

[Let a friend borrow a spot in my unlimited rental. She's 5'4" and slim build] Loved the dress and would totally wear it again. It’s an elegant satin navy blue dress and it fit like a glove. I’m 5’4 so I wore 5 inch heels to make sure I didn’t step on it

Great dress!

I wore this to a black tie holiday party, and loved it. The fit and fabric are great, and the dress is really flattering - it provides really good waist definition and the draped fabric from the waist down the leg slit made it forgiving than a basic straight dress. The only downside is that the cut of the armholes required a strapless bra.

Amazing Dress for an Amazing Night

When my original size dress was unavailable last minute I called RTR for options as I needed a navy dress based on all the accessories I had purchased for my event. Destiny spent 45 minutes on the phone with me searching for a dress that I would like as a replacement. This dress was offered by her and I reluctantly told her to add it to the bag being sent out, I am not a fan of ruffles but I figured having options was all I could do, and I would just have to cross my fingers that the backup size in the original dress would fit so I wouldn't be "stuck" having to wear this dress. Well the next day when the bag arrived I was so happy the backup of my orignal fit, crisis averted! But then I figured why not try on the suggested replacement since it was there - and OMG am I so glad I did!!! I fell in love with this dress - ruffles and all!! It is a show stopper for sure and I received so many compliments all night! The fit is true to size throughout although the chest felt big, but I am small up top so for my own piece of mind a just put some fashion tape on the sides and I didn't think of it the rest of the night! The cut out shoulders are awesome and I was able to wear a regular strapless bra with this dress. It was comfy all night and easy to dance in. The slit at the ruffles is just fun but not obvious. I absolutely did not want to return this and as soon as another formal event gets on my calendar I will rent this dress again!!

Never received so many compliments on a dress before

I couldn’t believe how many compliments I received on this dress. One future mother of the bride took multiple photos of the dress so she could consider getting for her daughter’s wedding. The dress runs a bit small. I usually wear an 8 or 10, I needed a 12. It also needed to be shortened but the hem tape provided worked like a charm. It was very comfortable dress to wear.

Be the belle of the ball!

Wore this to the annual Christmas Party at the Vanderbilt Summer Cottage and had so many people stop me to compliment this dress. It is conservative enough to wear to true formal affairs but doesn't look or feel boring or old! It was comfortable to sit, eat and dance in and needed just a short heel to be the perfect length. I would have bought this but it's so distinctive I know people would remember it (which is why we rent, I guess!)

Very beautiful dress.

The dress is very flattering. The top would be better fit for a smaller chest, but going up a size worked just as well. So many compliments!

Runs very small for 12L couldn’t zip the back. I’m 5”11 and 180lbs. Never wore a 14 before. I picked another dress and the size 12L was perfect with a waist trainer.

Looks better on

Didn't end up wearing it, tried on a size 14 at the store and ordered a 16. Didn't fit over my chest and I was nervous about looking like I had armpit fat. That said, it's really flattering for hourglass figure and definitely worth trying.

Perfect Gala Gown

I'm a DD and it fit snug enough to skip the bra (yay!). I wore this to a NYE gala. The fabric was the perfect combination of stiff enough to be structured, yet comfortable enough to wear for several hours. The length was perfect with 3.5 inch heels

Fit beautifully. I'm normally a 6 and the 6 fit perfectly. Was a little nervous about the openness of the arm pit area - could go wrong - but it worked and felt great. Got tons of compliments.

Extremely small, didn't get to wear. I'm between a size 10-12 but couldn't get it on.

I wanted to wear this dress as it is stunning but it's about 2 sizes too small. I couldn't get this over my hip without looking like I was completely STUFFED inside it. All that money spent and none of the dresses fit. I'm between a 10-12 so me being cautions ordering a 12 and a 14 - one of them should have fit just fine. Nope. Couldn't even breathe or move. Very disappointing. Beware of how small it runs.

Wore this to a gala and received so many compliments!

Pros: gorgeous, great details, beautiful color and material. Cons: snug in ribcage, a little loose in the lower abdomen, but draped nicely. Long! I had to borrow 4" heels and I still had to lift up the dress to walk safely...and it still hit the floor in the back. I'm 5'5", 125 #.

Simple with a flair!

I’m in between a 4 and 6 just depends on style and had to go with 6 on this one. Fit well overall, although a little large in bust it wasn’t noticeable. Became slightly uncomfortable when sitting for an extended time period as it was tight in rib cage, but no issues when standing.

Great Dress- Runs one size small

I ordered the 8R and 10R. My measurements are 30” waist and 40” hips . There is not much difference in the 8 and 10 though, but it was almost like the 8 had been altered because it was like 2 inches shorter. I ended up wearing the 10 because it was not as tight on my stomach. It was like the 8 was just a half inch measure difference from the 10. Plus the length. I wore 4 inch heels with this dress. 3 inch would have worked too. The 8 was weirdly looser on the chest area. I wore a regular bra with it but know that it might peek out of the front because of the way the front is cut. My advice is wear a black racer back bra because the dress is a very dark navy. I will say that the top is very roomy. I’m guessing it’s 40” like the hip area. I’ve gained some weight recently, which is why I’m even using RTR and I was amazed how great this dress looked on me! I’m right now usually a size 8. If you are hourglass, this is for you. Fabric was nice and sturdy.

I LOVED this Dress. It photographed great and I received compliments all evening!

I am usually an 8, but it runs small around the hips. I went with the 10R - with the right bra and some Hollywood Tap.e it fit perfectly. I was comfortable and felt very elegant. It's a VERY well made gown. LOVED it!

Beautiful but not right for me!

This is a beautiful dress, but not a good cut for a large bust. It was too tight across the chest and the cut at the armholes exposed way too much breast tissue on me. It was fun to try on, though!

This dress is stunning and I would highly recommend it.

The fabric on this dress is really beautiful and the ruffle is certainly a showstopper. After two babies, I’m a little bigger in the midsection and I found this dress to be very comfortable and flattering. The top was a little bit large for me, but it wasn’t a dealbreaker by any means.
