Beautiful dress and the colors stood out in a sea of black gowns. The fit is mermaid. Very pretty!
Went up a size. The dress is intended to fit all the curves but the fabric does not stretch.

Colors are beautiful!
It fit great. I definitely had plenty of room to breathe and it wasn't too smug. I wore the 4L and the length was great. I opted to wear a bit shorter heel but it still fell perfectly.

Beautiful Color
Rented for a spring black tie wedding, beautiful color and silhouette. However, the fabric was thicker than I expected. It wasn't very flowy and was actually a bit tight in the hips because of it. Very glad I sized up. Also was a little long, but that usually happens to me.

Perfect for a Formal Wedding
This dress was terrific. The color is definitely brighter than the stock photo, I loved all the shades of purple. The fabric is soft and overall the dress was lighter than I expected. The dress is true to size, though I have a small chest so the top was a bit loose. There isn't any give in the fabric and the zipper did take some work to get over the waist seam. Once on it lays very smooth. It was comfortable even out dancing.

Loved wearing this dress. The colors are gorgeous. Stood out in a sea of black. Lots of compliments.
More form-fitting than it looks in the model photos, but that was ok with me. The dress is very comfortable.

Fit for a queen
RTR was so helpful when there was a delay in my order due to UPS, this wasn't the original gown I ordered but I loved this one even more! There were some problems with the zipper due to the thick fabric, but other than that this gown was perfect. I wore heels and it hit the floor perfectly. The pattern is stunning and the fit is slim but not constricting, it was easy to walk in. Another great experience with RTR!

Perfect for spring wedding
Overall beautiful dress. It is not flowy material like it looks in the picture so I had to wear a body shaper underneath it. The material was thick enough that I didn't have to wear a bra which was a plus! The color is gorgeous and I got many compliments.

Easter Dress
I loved this dress and the fit. It runs large... which I'm so bloated right now it's nuts and you couldn't tell. My boobs are massive too lol and I looked classy! It's very long... I have 5 inch wedges on under. I'm 5'3 though. The dress made me feel very beautiful... the cut is unique and even though one shoulder is bare, you are completely covered. Such a beautiful dress the print is so bright and cheerful. I got my daughters dress at Dillard's

Stunning and comfortable
Zipper was very difficult even not on. Dress was super comfortable and figure flattering. I am large chested but allowed me to wear a normal bra with one strap off. Fabric felt great too. Great rental! Got a ton of compliments. I loved that I didn't look like everyone else in a black dress. ;)

gorgeous print
Angela at the SF store recommended this dress to me. It's beautifully made and the print is lovely in person. Great for hourglass and pear shapes, plenty of room hips and butt. If the Regular length had been available, I would've chosen that one -- I'm 5'4" and with 3 inch heels the dress was still a little long. Loved this dress though and got a lot of compliments.

Great dress for a spring black tie event.
This dress was so comfortable and fit really well! Loved it. I had an issue with the zipper - had to lie down to get it to zip up because of the heavy fabric. Otherwise it was great!

I Love Your Dress!!!
I wore this dress to a Springtime in Provence themed Gala! It certainly looked and fit like an $850 dress! I felt comfortable in it all night. I had several compliments throughout the evening! The only downfall was the zipper. It was almost impossible to get up - nicked my skin in the 10 minute struggle and also struggled to get it unzipped after the Gala.

Really loved this dress...perfect for a spring event!
The L was quite long, I was glad I had platforms to keep from tripping on the hem. Overall it was curve-hugging and elegant - this is definitely one of my all time faves from RTR!

I got so many compliments on this dress, it was perfect!
I loved the fit of this dress, it is a little bit more form fitting than the picture but the thick material made it easy to go spanks and bra free! The only issue I had with the dress was the zipper, it is a tiny zipper on thick material so it is really really hard to zip up, I got ready alone so I had to use needle nose pliers to get a grip on it and be able to pull it up.

Was a last minute pick when first and second choice were not available.
Fit was flattering a little snug but comfortable. Don't particularly care for purple or flowers but received a lot of compliments and stood out from sea of black dresses.e

So gorgeous!
This gown is beautiful and comfortable. A friend was speaking with another girl about how floral is so in style right now but it's so hard to pull off and not look like a prom dress - and then they saw me walk in and confirmed this dress totally pulls it off!! :) I absolutely loved wearing it and would recommend to anyone, keeping these couple of things in mind: 1. The "long" is a little longer than I was anticipating. I am 5'6'' and wore 4-inch heels and it was just a bit too long (stylists had recommended I order a L due due to my height/heels - I was borderline). 2. The zipper is tough!! Took my husband some elbow grease to zip it up.

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.

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.

AMAZING!!
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.

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.

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.

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!

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 didn't end up wearing this dress. As other reviewers stated, this dress is VERY form fitting. But it is gorgeous!! The picture doesn't do it justice at all. I would have worn this one if I had the right amount of Spanx!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Shapely & Flattering
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

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

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.
