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.

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!

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. ;)

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

Zipper is a nightmare

This dress is beyond gorgeous but unfortunately I was not able to wear it even though it fit perfectly because the zipper was messed up. I read in prior reviews that it's really difficult to get the zipper up and down which is also true even while the dress is just hanging. Sad because it's so beautiful!

Unforgettable colors!

Wore this dress at 5 and 1/2 months pregnant with a very high belly! The regular was a bit long for me 5'2 but I tucked in a little bit underneath the boob area whenever I danced which made my pregnancy look cute so no big deal! Everyone was in love with the color and the style. I usually wear an 8/10 but being in the second trimester with most of my weight gain in the tummy area I had to wear a 14R.

Vibrant colors stand out in a crowd

I wore this dress at 15 weeks pregnant so I sized up two sizes. I could've definitely gotten away with just wearing a 12 though. Because of my odd sizing, the dress was way too big in the bust (but I'm not taking off any stars for that since it may have fit better with a smaller size). The only reason I'm giving the dress 4 stars instead of 5 is due to the length. I pinned the dress up on the sides and wore 4 inch heels, but it was still way too long. I'm 5'3. I would recommend this dress for taller women, or prepare to use pins and tape to keep the dress from dragging. Other than that, loved it!

Beautiful dress but didnt wear for event

This dress was beautiful the fabric is very nice and you can tell that the dress has quality materials. The dress fit like it was suppose to but I have issues with my midsection and didnt like the way it looked in the dress. Spanks would have helped but I forgot to pack them. This was my number one pick but ended up wearing the additional dress I rented.

Beautiful floral pattern!

I was 21 weeks pregnant so the fit wasn't perfect, but overall this was a great dress for a fun summer wedding! It was a little heavy for the humid day we had, but the pattern is so pretty it's worth it. I sized up 1-2 sizes to accommodate the little bump and it worked pretty well. It was comfortable to dance in and it got lots of compliments!

Gorgeous dress

Beautiful dress that's easy to wear and dance the night away. It's figure flattering. You don't need a bra though you could wear a strapless. The fabric is heavy enough to cover any rolls or dimples but not so heavy that you couldn't wear in the summer. The only down side is the zipper. It is stiff and tough to pull up or down without help. I paired it with a silk scarf and sparkly 3" heels.

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!
