STUNNING MATERIAL AND COLOR! I felt like a glamorous mermaid :)
This dress was a show stopper at a black tie silent auction I went to. I got SO MANY compliments. The material and color were beautiful. It is a mermaid fit, which was super flattering. This was my first mermaid/trumpet dress, so I learned it's a little tough to walk up and down stairs.. but other than that this dress was PHENOMENAL and I would recommend it to anyone. Both sizes fit, although I sized up just for more walking room.

Beautiful Gown
The dress is a beautiful peacock blue color - rich and vibrant. It is well made with a good fabric. Very flattering overall - I received a lot of compliments. The 6P was a perfect length, the 4R was way too long.

First-time vacation to california with my boyfriend and took him to some amazing things
With my heels on (which were only about 2 inch high) the dress just touched the ground (i'm 5' 2"/ almost 3) a little difficult to dance in the dress- kept stepping on it- good strong material though- no rips or tears tight around the butt and upper thighs so had to hike it up a bit to sit down Did have trouble zipping it up right at the seamline around the waist - zipper kept getting stuck (and it wasn't because I was too big or anything for the dress - even when it was off it was still difficult to zip at that part - but that was just on the size 10- the size 8 had no problems with the zipper Overall it fit great and looked great, everyone loved the dress, I felt great wearing it, loved the color = great choice!

I loved this gown! I felt glamorous and gorgeous in it!
Great fit and length was perfect with 3" heels. (I'm 5'3".) I never wore a mermaid silhouette before because I don't like my stomach, but the ruching and drape of this gown was very flattering.

Gorgeous Dress!
This dress is very beautiful and flattering, although it runs VERY small. I'm 5'3", 120 pounds and I'm a pretty solid size 4. But I saw that this gown ran small so I ordered a size 6, with a backup size 8. I ended up wearing the 8. It worked perfectly for a formal banquet I go to every year. The color is gorgeous, the fit is flattering, and it's pretty comfortable. I highly recommend it.

Lovely, but unworn
It's a beautiful dress, but unfortunately the size 2R and 4R were huge on me (I'm 5'4 and 104 lb.) and the color made my already pale skin look like a ghost. Cute, but not for me.

Tons of compliements on this fabulous dress! Color is amazing
I normally wear a 6L, but only 4L was available. With a pair of Spanx....made it work! The top was a good fit, the bootie/hips was were it was more snug, but still did ok. I got a milllion compliements and felt beautiful. I also rented the necklace if you can see, that was a stunner as well!

Great fit, quality fabric, beautiful color. It fit my bust well, so it may be large on others.

Perfect Peacock Blue
The dress is a show stopper! It was very difficult to get the side zipper up, but once it was up it was ON and held everything in place perfectly. No need to wear a bra even though I am a 36d. The fabric does not have any stretch so keep that in mind. Everyone at the ball commented on the gorgeous peacock blue/teal color and how it was so flattering. I am very fair skinned and often struggle with color choices, but this color is fantastic.

Didn't wear this dress.
I didn't end up wearing this dress. I got my size and a size up and because of how awkward the zipper was, I couldn't get it zipped. Sent it back. Beautiful dress. I hope it works for someone else. It didn't work for me.

Very beautiful dress and nice material however I would not recommend for ladies with C cup or bigger. I am a small C and my dress was incredibly tight, it was uncomfortable. .

Getting dressed up.
I did not wear this dress because there was a pen mark front and center on the stomach area of the dress that I saw as soon as I opened the plastic bag. That didn't stop me from trying on the dress though. I absolutely LOVED the look, feel, and color of this dress and I'm sad that I didn't get to wear it. I tried the dress on without a bra (it is well lined) and with 4-inch heels that seemed to be the right height so that I wouldn't be tripping on the dress if I could have worn it. I am normally a size 6 in formal dresses and this dress fit true to formal dress size. Because of the stain on the 6R and the backup size not fitting a RTR Rep overnighted me 2 more dresses (1 of which also had a stain and the other worked out perfectly).

Gorgeous dress!! So many compliments!
I immediately fell in love with this dress when I saw it and read all the reviews to figure out the right sizes to order. I am 5'2", 118lbs with an athletic build. I decided on the 0R and the 2R. Much to my dismay when I received the dresses Thursday night, I could zip neither over my rib cage. RnR overnighted a 4R by noon on Saturday of the event. It fit beautifully (though slightly big in the chest - I am a 34B). The color and style is simply stunning and I was stopped by many people who told me they loved the dress! I highly recommend this dress!

glamorous!
I am 5'8" and wore the 4R. It was just the right length- too long and it would puddle and the fabric is too thick for that to look good. Very snug- would've tried the 6R but it was unavailable. Got compliments on the color. It's a beautiful, glamorous dress- can't go wrong.

Stunning!
This dress is simply stunning. The color is so unique. It really stands out. The fabric is beautiful and the dress well made. The regular was perfect in length for me with 3 inch heels. (I am 5'5".) The bottom was wrinkled when it arrived but was very easy to iron. I would rent this dress again in a heartbeat.

Show stopper in a sea of LBDs.
I felt like a million bucks in this dress. I received so many compliments all night long, even from strangers. The dress fit very well and accentuated all the right curves, while not highlighting my flaws. I didn't have to tug at the dress at all and was super comfortable in it. I even went out dancing after the gala until 3am! I absolutely loved this dress and would buy it in a heartbeat. In regards to the size, I went up a size slightly because of my hips and thighs. Apparently, I do too many squats or not enough.

Wore this for a huge Gala for our local hospital!
It fit perfectly. I have a small bust (32B) so a padded strapless bra was needed and fit underneath. I am fairly short at 5'2" and needed the 4" heels I wore with it. For my first time renting, it could not have gone bettter!

ELEGANT DRESS
This dress was very elegant but a little tight at the waist--run small. I recommend renting one size up or order a second size just in case. But Still I got a lot of compliments about the dress and the clutch ; )

Color was gorgeous and I felt so sophisticated!
I'm between a size 10 and 12 because of my body type (big top and slim bottom). I ended up wearing the 12 because the top fits a little snug. The hip area had a little more wiggle room because I have slim hips. Length was perfect when I put my heels on (I'm not wearing shoes in the pic). Overall the dress fit me well and gave my sturdy build a more feminine hourglass figure. I received compliments all night on the color and style of the dress. The jewel tone is absolutely amazing! I would def wear this dress again!

It was a gorgeous, quality gown! I received many compliments, including, "I LOVE your dress!"
The previous reviews were spot on! The mermaid fit was slim through the hips, so I sized up. I had a nice fit through the bodice, and could wear my usual strapless bra with no fit issues. If the 12L was available, I would have rented that because the 12R length was just a bit short. I wore flats as I planned, and even then it seemed a teeny bit short and there wasn't as much of a train as shown in the preview photo. Overall, it was a well designed gown in a gorgeous teal color with a true mermaid fit.

Stunning color
Received so many compliments on this dress! The color is gorgeous!! Runs a little tight around the rib cage but my 36D chest had plenty of room. I'm only 5'3" so I had to use hem tape to take the dress up 1.5" for 3" heels.

Never have I ever been told I looked stunning by anyone, let alone perfect strangers!
I loved this dress. LOVED IT. It had a perfect wow factor for the optional black tie wedding we attended. I wear a 0/2 depending on the cut. The 0 fit everywhere BUT my ribcage and the 2 only fit my ribcage, being big everywhere else! Once I changed to a different slip (hip smoothing, not spanx that came over my ribs) and we soaped the zipper, it closed right up. I did wear a small push up bra, but I don't think it was really needed, due to how it sat on my hips and fit snuggly around my ribs. Not uncomfortably so though. The color is amazing (my photos don't do it justice - darn low lighting!), combined with the rouching (sp?) and the way the fabric lays, this dress was super flattering! Perfect strangers complimented me and asked repeatedly where I'd gotten such a lovely gown! High-five, RTR...High. Five.

Felt like a princess!
I never get to wear these kinds of things, so I created my own occasion... surprised my boyfriend for his birthday with wine and cheese in an abandoned tower that overlooks sf bay. I looked and felt like a princess. The dress was a bit large in the chest and I probably could have worn a 2 long.

Bold color and cut - just perfect!
If you're short, be prepared to wear tall heels. I rented the 6R and am 5' 2" so the dress was still just slightly dusting the floor with 4 in heels. Stunning dress - makes people's heads turn for sure!

Loved the color and cut of this dress. Got many compliments. It does have virtually no stretch so be prepared if you have a larger chest; it was a close call but worked just fine! Loved the dress.

Beautiful mermaid but the long was WAY too long and I'm 5'8. So make sure to get the "regular"
I love this dress and have rented it twice. The first time, I wore the 4R and it fit perfectly (a little tight in the torso). The second time, the 4R was damaged so I could only rent the 4L, which was fit well in the torso but was too long. I got a ton of compliments and loved wearing it!

Beautiful dress but must have a very flat tummy and toned rear, even in spanx, I had to size up!
If you wear this dress, you will probably not be as comfortable eating. Best on tall, busty women with small waist and hips.

The dress is beautiful, but not meant for anyone that is not in perfect shape. It highlights flaws.
I would not recommend this dress unless you have the perfect body. It made my average body look huge. I used the term "blue whale." Good luck!

Beautiful show stopper. I looked like a mermaid.
The dress was absolutely stunning. Everyone kept calling me a mermaid. Got lots of compliments. Gave me a good shape on my body as well. I'm a size 6 but I got an 8 just in case my back was too wide. It didn't end up fitting but good thing it didn't because it had the wires sticking out and lose strands around the dress. You can tell its been worn a lot.
