Gorgeous, slimming dress
I actually bought this dress on clearance and only the 2L size was available, so I got it altered. I cut about 4 inches from the bottom and tightened the top part because the straps were loose on me. It probably would've been perfect if I had ordered the right size, though! It's a beautiful color and it's very classic. I wore this to my med school spring formal and I'm wearing it again tonight for another formal. It's very comfortable and I'm thrilled with my purchase.

Perfect for a 'black tie' wedding
I'm 5'7" with long legs, so I ordered the long. It fit true to size. The color was very flattering, It was a very comfortable dress. Although I have no complaints, I did not feel 'sexy' on the dress, for that reason I would not get it again, but if you have a formal event this dress fits perfectly.

Amazing shade of blue!
This dress ended up being a backup and not even one of my original choices after the backup size of my first choice wasn't returned in time. I wouldn't have picked this one just from looking at it, but I am SO happy I ended up with it for a charity gala! The 10R was perfect length and the bottom fit me well, but the top was a little big. I used lots of fashion tape and felt fine after that. The color is truly gorgeous and I got several compliments on how pretty the color was. I didn't need to wear any shapewear under it at all and the cut of the dress was very flattering and comfortable.

While the waist of this dress was "bump friendly", you def. have to order a bigger size
I usually wear a 2-4 and at 39 weeks pregnant I had to wear a 10. While it fit over my bump, the straps were too long/the top was too big and required lots of fashion tape and safety pins to make work. It's a beautiful color and dress but if you're looking for a truly bump friendly dress I would keep looking.

Dress is gorgeous I wear 12 or 14's but lately typically a 14 and the 12 fit perfect.very low cut
Loved the dress and received tons of compliments was not pleased with how low cut the front and back are. You can't wear a regular strapless you have to wear a low back strapless.

I wore this dress to my sister's beauty pageant. I received compliments all night about the color!
This dress was an overall success for me! The color and the fit were amazing. The waist line of this gown is very flattering. My only complaint is that the straps were a little loose, causing the neckline to be a little lower than I would have liked. I would recommend this dress for almost any event. I was very pleased!

The size 10L fit better, but I wore the size 12L because it was longer. Used some tape to keep the straps up.

Beautiful, comfortable, fits well, runs a little big/loose relative to size
This dress unfortunately got to me too late so I wasn't able to actually wear it to the event, but I loved it so much that I can't wait to order for next time. It is super lightweight, awesome for a more formal summer wedding!

Beautiful dress on a beautiful night!
Very elegant dress - much brighter blue than in the pictures! I rented a 6R and 8R - there wasn't a huge difference in the two sizes. The 6R was more snug in the waist band, but the top on both dresses was looser than expected, so I opted for the smaller size and sucking in a bit for a cleaner top look. One thing to note, I used a LOT of fashion tape to keep the straps down and in place, just something to consider. I wore the dress with the BADGLEY MISCHKA JEWELRY - Crystal Cluster Earrings - which I thought were a nice change from the typical dangly sparkles.

Beautiful dress. Not great for pregnancy unless you are large chested.
I rented this gown for a black tie wedding but did not wear. I was 5 months pregnant at the time with 2nd baby. I found the waist line too low for me. It cut off my bump at a weird spot. I wear a 36C and I think unless you are really well endowed up top the waist line sits 1/3 of the way down from the top of the baby bump creating a weird silhouette.

Gorgeous dress, sticky zipper
I rented this dress for a formal wedding, but didn't end up wearing it due to the zipper sticking. It was fine when I tried the dress on with an ideal fit (slightly large in the bust, but that's expected with little boobs!) However, even when on the hanger the zipper was a complete pain. I was lucky I had a backup!

Flattering AND forgiving - and baby bump friendly!
I was a bit nervous about this dress with my budding baby bump, but the material is beautiful, soft, and very forgiving. The color is beautiful for late spring and summertime events, so bright and vivid. For me at 5'3'' the dress was a bit long (still had to hike it up with 4 inch heels) and loose around the shoulders. I think for someone bustier, the shoulders at least would not be a problem.

Beautiful Royal Blue!
I liked this dress, but it wasn't my favorite I have rented! It was a little big at the top, and with heels on my feet slightly showed so I went ahead and wore flats, so it was a tad bit long. The color is beautiful in person, really bright! Overall, I enjoyed wearing this dress, but it probably wouldn't be my first pick to wear again!

Gorgeous Dress!
This dress was absolutely gorgeous and very different from a lot of the other RTR long dresses out there. The detail in the top is beautiful, the color is stunning, and the fabric is so soft. Also, the dress is very forgiving in the middle area so you can eat and drink all night long without looking bloated :)

Overall this was a great dress. I received many compliments! You cannot wear a regular bra and the straps were too long but nothing I couldn't work with.

I loved this elegant dress.
I usually wear a size 8 but they were out of 8's so I ordered a 6. It was very large up top (I am small breasted) so I had a size 4 shipped overnight. It arrived before noon and fit comfortably! The only con is the straps would periodically fall down. Overall I was very pleased with the dress and received many compliments on how beautiful it was.

The dress is gorgeous and elegant, color is spectacular.
The dress is tight in the upper waist, but still fit very well. The only downside, which I did not realize until it arrived, is that it is cut so low in the back that I had to wear those funky stick-on bras instead of a regular one. I received many compliments on the dress overall, especially the color. I am 5'7" and 130 pounds and the size 2 fit great. I worried about the length because I am on the cut off for the long one, and wore 3 inch heels. I ordered the long and it was about perfect.

Felt so beautiful
This was a backup dress I was sent after my original dress was returned damaged. However I was very pleased since this dress was absolutely gorgeous. Got so many compliments all night. The size 4 might have been a little better since it was a bit snug in the ribcage but not unbearable. Only con is the regular length is still quite long. I wore 3.5 inch heels and it still grazed the floor. Besides that, I was so happy with this dress!

This is a really pretty dress, but definitely one you need to rent in a couple sizes.
The color and details of this dress are gorgeous, but it was tough to find the right fit. The 10 fit me way better in the bust and hips, but was too tight in the waist. I ended up wearing the 12 so it would fit my waist comfortably, but as a result, I had to pin up the top of the dress so that the bust part wasn't falling down.

This was my backup dress. I did not wear it but I did try it on and it is very cute. Fit was right on, I'm 5'7 and it was a tad short so if you are 5'7 or taller you may want to go with a tall size. Only issue I saw was the fabric was a bit on the staticy side, which of course if fairly easy to address. If I have another formal event I would prob rent this one.

Got compliments all night - including from the stunning bride!
I loved the vibrant blue color of the dress, and the plunging V back. The pleated skirt was sweeping and beautiful, and the whole thing was perfect for a black-tie wedding! There wasn't much difference between the 6 and the 8, so I went with the smaller. Even my (extremely persnickety) father approved.

Beautiful blue color!
I selected this dress because I really loved the clot and simplicity of it. I usually wear a size 14-16, but this dress size 12 fit be just fine around my larger hips. The trouble was that the top was very loose and my bra kept showing. The straps were to long, and with the back as low as it is, you would either see my low backed bra in the front or the back (you CAN NOT get away with a regular bra in this dress). Get the double stick tape for this one, it was my only saving grace and kept the dress up all night!!!! I think I could have easily gotten away with a size 10 in this dress. The fabric was very forgiving and it was a good length. Over all I loved the dress.

This was my back up dress
There was an error with my order and RTR made sure to overnight me this dress so that I would have a back up dress in case my original dress didn't work out. I didn't end up wearing this one, but it is really beautiful and runs true to size.

Pretty, but tight in bust
My preferred dress was not going to make it, so customer service sent this one as a backup. It was pretty and the color was lovely, but the 8L was much to small for my chest. I was 6 weeks post partum and it was very flattering everywhere, but I couldn't get it to zip over my DD chest.

I was very pleased with the overall fit. However when I sat down the straps kept sliding off my shoulders. Other than that it was great to move in. Did a lot of dancing

Absolutely stunning gown!
This gown is amazingly flattering, and it's perfect for a formal event. I rented this as a backup when my original gown was destroyed and my backup (Nicole Miller's Living a Dream) turned out to be a little too "sexy" for the look I was going for, and I couldn't have been happier. It's very forgiving in the hip area, and the color on brunettes is just stunning. The straps were a little large, but stayed up fine as long as I didn't slouch. I would not size up, and if anything, get a size down as your back up. I am on the shorter end of 5'6", and the length in two inch heels was just a tad short - I could have probably gotten away with flats, or the long length if I wanted higher heels. I absolutely loved it!!

Gorgeous color, very comfy. Worked as a maternity dress.
I took the chance and rented this dress as a maternity dress and it worked perfectly. The material and cut was flattering even though I was 38 weeks pregnant and I got so many compliments. It was such a nice feeling to wear something that was so pretty at a time when you don't always feel so beautiful.

Weird fit...not for my body.
I bought a strap to make my bra backless but the front is cut just as low which makes it impossible to wear a bra. Needless to say, I could wear it since I'm busty. The top fits big and the bottom fits small.

Very forgiving dress for a new momma!
I had a baby 6 weeks ago, so I was nervous about finding a flattering dress that wouldn't cling to my still large tummy. I really loved this dress! The empire waist makes it super slimming and flattering if you want to hide a tummy or hips. I got tons of compliments all night and felt great about myself. The length was great, which was a relief since I'm between 5'9" and 5'10". The only down side was that the top was a little roomy, which is saying something since I'm pretty chesty. The straps were just a little long, so when sitting it gaped a bit. But overall, that was a minor issue and I loved it. Also, I usually wear a size 4 and wore a 4 in this dress even though I am 15 lbs above regular weight. So it does run a bit large.

way too big in all the wrong places
RTR sent me this dress as a back up, so even though I had no intention of wearing it, I tried it on anyway. Everything was HUGE. The chest area was big, the shoulder straps were too big, and because of that the dress did not work on me. However, the color is beautiful, and perhaps if you have a longer torso, a larger chest and are taller than me, this dress may be perfect for you.

Beautiful color! Beautiful dress!
This dress is amazing. The color is the most perfect royal blue and I got compliments on it all night. The fit was pretty true to size and it was flattering but definitely not tight anywhere or uncomfortable. I was a little concerned about the sleeves because although the dress fit perfectly the sleeves still felt loose simply because of the lower back on this dress--completely solved with a strip of fashion tape on each shoulder. The length was a little longer than I like but it didn't look silly I just had to pick it up for any puddles haha I wore heels that were 3-4" high. All in all this dress was perfect, I felt beautiful and it made my night so memorable. I never say this about dresses, but I really never wanted to take this dress off!
