This dress was dramatic and exactly what I wanted for my recital!
Fit is snug, but beautifully to my body. The strapless dress stays up nicely and the bottom flares gradually. The color is rich and dramatic :)

hi! How was the length and how high were your heels? I'm just under 5'9 so I imagine about as tall as you in your heels. Was the R long enough?

Wore a different dress.
This was a very small fit. Rented the 16 in this and another gown. The other gown fit perfectly (didn't even need shape wear). This one I couldn't even zip above my waist so it can't be blamed just on my busom. Beautiful fabric and color but order at least one size up.

Absolutely gorgeous color!
I wore this to a formal charity event. I received many compliments as the color is beautiful and nice to wear something other than black. The 4 fit a little better, but too big in the bust. The long was also too long so I wore the 2R. I am typically a 2L. By the bed of the night I was pretty uncomfortable which is why I am giving it a 4 star. I do think it is a lovely dress.

Best dress at a military ball
I'm 5'4", so I ordered the regular, and it fit great but I couldn't wear heels with it. It was the perfect length for flats though. Also, it felt a little scrunched up in the body--I think if I'd gotten the Long it would have fit my proportions better....something I never, ever thought I'd be tall enough to say. Color is GREAT in person and in pictures. Top is s big smaller than the bottom, so if you're hourglass you may want to order a size up rather than down, so that there's enough room up top.

Photo doesn't do the color justice - it's a deep teal and just beautiful in person.
This gown definitely runs small. As you can see my 36DDs are a bit...confined! I rented the 14R because the long length wasn't available, and should have rented the 16L. I'm 5' 6" and could only wear kitten heels with this dress. Overall I really enjoyed this dress

The color of this gown is amazing! A huge standout in a sea of black!
The dress fits true to size, so size up if you are curvy. Shorter ladies be warned, this dress is long! 4 inch heels made the length manageable. The cut is super flattering and the train is gorgeous! Got tons of compliments on the gown !

Every one stopped at said they loved the dress
The dress was beautiful. The color was amazing. The zipper was hard to get up. It was a two person job getting this dress zippered up. But once it was it fit like a glove. It was perfect like the dress was made for me. I wore pretty high heels since I am am pretty petite. The dress just touched the ground. I loved this dress.

Simply stunning, wonderful fit and super flattering.
This dress simply blew me away. I rented a size bigger like many others suggested and it was a bit big in the chest area (I'm a B cup) but I just added a padded strapless bra and it fit perfectly. I've never received so many compliments in my life!! It was just spectacular. The color is like nothing I've ever seen before. Very beautiful! Super flattering cut and fabric was stunning. This was my first experience with RTR and I was so impressed. Can't wait to rent again and try something new.

Loved the color and fit. The only negative is the material could be a touch "bridesmaidish" but overall, lovely gown.

Grandma boobs
It would've been perfect if it hadn't made my boobs look misshapened and pancake-like. I wore a pretty stiff strapless bra, but that didn't help. The dress arrived a day later than scheduled, so I didn't have time to get another dress before my event. That said, I received numerous compliments throughout the night. It was the perfect length with 3" heels. It runs ever-so-slightly small (I'm usually between 0 and 2, and this was a perfect fit.

Made me feel like an red-carpet celebrity- LOVED THIS DRESS
I read the reviews and decided to order one size true to my usual fit (6P) and one size 8. The 6 petite fit LIKE A DREAM!!! As soon as I tried it on I knew it was perfect. It was tight enough to hug my curves (and keep my boobs in place) but not so tight that I couldn't dance or breath. The fabric across my tummy hid any trouble (hey, I've had two kids) and it wasn't too long. I was actually able to wear an extremely comfortable pair of heels, maybe four inches, and I happily danced the night away. I wore this to a black-tie FreeMasons Charity Ball and I received compliments all night from complete strangers. The aqua color was gorgeous- in some pictures the sheen of the dress and the lighting can look almost blue - but no one had an color dress even close to the same. This was my first time using RTR and I'm so happy, I can't wait to try them again!

Fit perfectly for a petite frame... A little long for someone that's just 5'-0", but not too bad. Color and fabric are so rich too, great construction and so flattering.

Stunning Dress, Excellent Customer Service + Overnight Shipping!
After renting two dresses for a black tie event hosted by my husband's company, sadly neither dress was working! I called RTR and the stylist helped me choose between a few dresses I had previously hearted. She had great input and placed the order for overnight shipping. The dress arrived the next morning and ended up being perfect for the event. The zipper was pretty tough to get up past a certain point, almost like it was stuck? But we made it work eventually. If this is your first pick, might try two sizes to see if that makes a difference. Overall lots of compliments and a blast to dance in! Thanks RTR :)

This is one of my favorite dresses I have ever worn. The color was stunning!
I usually wear a 4, but it was too tight so I had to wear the 6. Most of the reviews said it ran small, so I got the size up and I was so glad I did. It was very flattering and the color is so different from what anyone else was wearing. I loved it!

Absolutely loved this dress!
I received so many compliments. It fit very true to size of not a little smaller than I hoped. So even if you are a 4R, I would get a 6R as a back up just in case. Trust me! ;)

Dress looks better in person than on site if you can even begin to imagine that
This dress is so pretty but I don't know if it's the person who wore it before me that stretched it out or the bust just runs too big but I had to shift and pull up all night ... Super nice to wear though nonetheless and comfortable! The train on the dress is SOOO spectacular and gives the dress the perfect hint of elegance

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Great dress if you get the proper fit
This was my first RTR and I completely forgot that designer dresses run so small. I ordered my normal size and the next up backup wasn't available - whoops! I really needed at 10L. As it was, it was too tight, rode up and was too short. I looked pregnant because of the way it hugged the lower abdomen! I think it would have been amazing in the right size though - quality fabric, vibrant color, beautiful shape. Just make sure you don't order your 'banana republic size' ;-)

In a sea of LBD's this was a stunner!
Pictures don't do this dress justice. Do yourself a favor a reserve this one now. Fabric is substantial and has a beautiful sheen. And the color...I kept getting compliments all evening! I felt like a million dollars. It runs a little big in the tummy area, so despite my slightly pear shape, I had to return my 2R for a 0R, which fit like a glove. That being said, I still had room to sit comfortably and eat all night. For reference, I'm 5'5", 117 lbs, and I wear a size 2/4 bottom and a 0/34B top. I wore 4" heels and the front came off the floor just enough to let my pretty shoes peep through. RTR now has an enthusiastic customer for life!

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.

STYLIST REVIEW
Absolutely love this stunning gown! The color is gorgeous and the dress is perfect for showing off your curves. It is very fitted throughout and runs small, so definitely size up for your backup size! There is enough support in the top that no bra is needed! This dress is perfect for your next black tie event!
SarahMay 26, 2015
looks great! how was the length? did you wear heels and did the skirt drag at all?
FayeFayeJune 22, 2015
seconded, how was the length? I'm just under 5'9 and don't plan on wearing heels, would you recommend R or L?
