Beautiful!
The zipper wasn't easy and it was long. I had three inch heels on and had to carry it most of the night.

Love, love, love
This dress is perfection. I received a ton of compliments. I wore a 12-14 regularly and needed the 16 in this. The 14 worked but the 16 just felt better.

Absolutely loved this dress. It fit perfectly.
I am in love with this dress. I didn't originally order it but due to an error by the sales associate at the store, I was sent the wrong dress so had to go pick this up as a backup. It worked out because it fit like a glove. The material is thick since it's lined so i didn't have to worry about my bra or anything coming loose. The length was also perfect and I didn't have to worry about stepping on it as I danced. I wore a 2inch heel. I would totally rent this dress again.

The ARRIVAL
The excitement started when I got my Black Bag! I had been so excited as it was my first time! I'm 5'2 and 135lbs . Just having a baby I was nervous picking a dress but the reviews and honesty on the reviews really helped. I did have to take a breath In and helped nudge the zipper up. But it fit perfectly . I felt like a princess and the fit was comfortable for being pretty fitted.

Dress fit great. Zipper was a little tough to get over as the fabric was tough, but once it got up, it fit perfect. Many compliments and was perfect for a black tie wedding.

Very flattering dress
This dress is awesome. Needed a gown for a formal summer wedding and I was nervous bc I'm a jeans and t-shirt girl. This dress worked perfectly - the fabric is comfortable, it fit really well, and it hugs your body in all the right places. I'm a modest dresser with a long and lean shape so I loved that this dress accentuates your curves while keeping you covered. It's eye-catching in a classy way, people will compliment you all night in this dress. The fabric is a medium weight so it's not too constricting, easy to move around and dance in. The zipper was a little bit of a pain like others have mentioned but not too bad. Other than that I can't think of any cons to this dress, it was a great rental for a special night. *I'm 5'8" and got the regular length, I knew it would bug me if it was dragging the floor. Wearing 3" heels in the photo

Great!
Ordered 10& 12. Both fit well but 12 was more comfortable. The bust area is a little large but not noticeable or annoying. Was able to wear a strapless bra easy. I have D boobs so I was surprised. I am 5'6 and length with heels was good too. Rcvd a lot of compliments.

Gorgeous gown just a little big at my hips.
I really love this gown, great weight, colors and effect BUT it it too big at my hips. Again, another dress I need a 00 in... I want to wear it just don't know if I will.

N/A
I wore this dress for a black tie summer wedding. I'm 6'1", and it was generally long enough in the 6L. I typically wear a size 27 or 4 in pants, and, while this fit me across the chest, it was a bit more than an inch wide on both sides of my hips (so ~3 inches total). I was able to pin it to make the fit a little more precise, but be warned that if you have smaller hips I would aim to size down. I got tons of compliments though and everyone loved the print!

Felt like a goddess
This dress fit me so well. I actually fit in the 12 but it was tight around my stomach. Sizing up to the 14 made my silhouette look much better. The regular length was perfect for my 3 inch heels. Received a ton of compliments. Overall, I felt stunning.

Stood taller and walked with confidence in this head-turning dress.
worn on a hot summer day, the dress wasn't too heavy; yet the lining held everything in without being to restricting.

Such a beautiful dress!
This dress is absolutely gorgeous! Love it! The fit in the hips & torso is snug. I could have worn the 14, but my event included a sit down dinner and I thought the 16 would be more comfortable. The color & pattern are unique & lovely! I received many compliments!

A gorgeous dress, a trifle long
I wore this for a black-tie wedding and felt beautiful in it. It was the right level of fanciness for the occasion, and it was fun to wear something so colorful when most people were wearing black. The dress fit pretty well, except that it was maybe about four inches too long (even while wearing three-inch heels); I wish it came in "petite" sizes! I had to be careful not to trip on it. Very comfortable, otherwise, for dinner (and there was A LOT of eating) and dancing. And for those ladies with small breasts, the folds and extra fabric at the bust goes a long way towards accentuating. I would rent it again.

Comfortable and care free!
Wore this dress for an outdoor wedding in Aspen! It was amazing! Fit was spot on! The material is beautiful and the colors allowed me to dress it down somewhat with flats. It was plenty long for heels though as well! The 14 was out of stock so I received the 16 and it was big in the chest and hips which makes me think the 14 would have been PERFECT!

This dress stood out from the crowd with its color and fit
I wore this for an outdoor summer party fundraiser, and boy it did not disappoint. The fabric is a nice weight so it is very forgiving but not too heavy. The fit and style were perfect. Of course, as I am 5'3" I had to wear my 3 inch wedges, but that was no surprise. Overall, one of my best experiences at RTR! One caveat: leave some extra time to get into this dress. The zipper is not up to the weight of the fabric and made it very difficult to zip. My solution was to zip it as far as possible with the dress at my waist and it was stretchy enough that I could pull it up and zip it the rest of the way.

Amazing
Background: 5', 113lbs, 32C. I loved this dress! It fit well and was so comfortable the whole night. It was long on me even with 5 inch heels so I used hemming tape and it was fine. It is lined so needed a lot of the hemming tape. Got compliments all night, I wish I owned this dress!! I wore this with a simple bracelet, stud earrings and 2 rings.

Great colors!
Wasn't the dress I wanted but they sent as a replacement. Love the one shoulder strap. Great fit and flattering. Hugs all the right places. I wore the 12R. The 10R would have been perfect but the side zippers on both dresses were very difficult and I had to have help. It was a little long (I'm 5'4"), even in 3" heels. Just picked it up when I walked or danced and it was fine.

Good for broader shoulder, smaller bust because of the cut.

Pros: Gorgeous one shoulder dress that highlights the curves! Cons: This is dress is form fitting, it does have a little stretch but more form fitting than I anticipated. The zipper gets stuck making it very tricky to get on. #wedding #formal #floral

This dress was absolutely perfect for a formal evening wedding!
I ordered the 8L and 10L and wore the 10L. The 8L wouldn't even zip up over my bust. The 10L was the perfect fit. I loved that it was long but not dragging. I felt very confident and secure as a curvy mommy.

Beautiful dress! You'll get tons of compliments.
As the other reviews state, the zipper is AWFUL. I needed a second person to use pliers to finish zipping it up despite the fact that it fit great and the zipper wasn't getting caught on any fabric. Other than that, I loved this dress. I wore the regular length with flats and it was plenty long enough.

Perfect dress for a formal spring wedding!
Dress runs a bit small and has no stretch, so ladies, size up. I'm 5'7" and with 3.5" in heels the Long was perfect length. The color, the lilac flower pattern and the cut of the dress it to die for. Got compliments on the dress all night.

Lavender glam in spring
I received this dress as my first option arrived with a broken zipper. I'm glad I received this dress instead. It as gorgeous and very springy. For me, I'm between 10-12, so the bust area felt a little big with the 12 but is was comfortable. As other people mention it, the zipper is a battle to pull up and also I had trouble making sure the front fit flat with the ruched, once I got the neckline right, the dress never moved during the night. I did like that your breast section looked smaller with the print and ruched. It is very curve hugging but I felt it did not emphasize my stomach since there was draping on the skirt. I'm short, so I needed higher heels so it will not hit the floor, but I keep pulling it up when I walked or danced and it was fine.

Beautiful formal gown
This is truly a stunning dress and I received many compliments on it, however it was awful to zipper despite the dress being too big. It required help to get it up and down simply because the zipper was ill-designed with too much fabric (according to the seamstress that tried to help me). But the fabric is otherwise forgiving and the floral is on point for the season.

I wore this dress to an outdoors wedding at a winery in Northern Virginia.
This dress was the perfect length for me with high wedge sandals. The fabric is thick and supportive enough to go without a bra. As others mentioned, the fabric makes zipping very difficult, so I did need someone else to zip me in. Lots of compliments, and the dress looked beautiful in photos!

It was one of a kind.
Fit was good and the size 6 was doable as well, with a little more room. I could go braless because the material was thick but not bulky. The length of the dress was a bit awkward because I wore medium heels. I had to mess with the pleats on the top but got them to work.

Best RTR moment to date
This is a beautiful and expensive dress that makes you look unbelievably stunning. It's such a statement, that it would be impossible to wear twice and it's quite pricey. I can't think of a better scenario to use RTR. I do think this dress is very long though. I am 5 feet 5 inches and had 3 1/2 inch heels and barely made it work. It's worth it though.

I would wear this dress everyday if that was possible. I'm typically a size 2 - 5'8", 135lbs. This dress fit beautifully, the perfect feminine dress to wear for a black tie wedding in May. I received compliments all night long in this dress. I got this in a 2L and the length was perfect with 3" heels.

Great dress - beautiful colors and great cut.
The size 6 was a little small in the bust area, but the eight was a little large in the hips/butt. I think the six ended up being a little small because I put on a little weight recently. I ended up wearing the 8 for comfort. At 5'5, I thought the regular was the perfect length with 4 inch heels. Got tons of compliments. even in 97 degree dry heat, I found the dress to be really comfortable and the fabric breathable. The fabric through the hips does have some stretch/give, making it easy to move around. Like others have mentioned, side zipper can be tricky.

Gorgeous Gown
I wore this for my Mothers Day Show. It was a perfect gown for an outdoor garden celebration. It does run a bit snug but it hugs in all the right places. I think a size up wouldn't have been as flattering.
