Didn't get to wear it

Beautiful dress and only wore it around the house. Being 5'2" it was about 4-5 inches long hem from the floor. With four inches heel it was still dragging. High recommend

Drama

This dress is so dramatic- it's fun and easy to wear but be prepared for wedding dress large. I wore on Halloween and went as Liz Taylor. It's very old Hollywood. It's not easy for a short woman to get up and down stairs- but worth it! I am between 10/12 and the 12 was way to big. The color is amazing.

Dramatic!

Gorgeous gown that fit true to size. Length is perfect for 5'10" with 3 inch heels (8L). Bodice was slightly tight but I am wide - for the average 36c it's likely a perfect fit.

It was a "Belle of the Ball" gown!

"BAM!" This dress was stunning! I received compliments all night. Everyone stopped me to comment on how stunning the dress was. I am 5'10", 140lbs, and a 34C. The dress is true to size. I wore 3.5" high heels. The dress was too long for me to wear flats, but it was just a little high off the ground with my heels. Not noticeable to anyone else though. The skirt is big, which made it so elegant. Walking was fine, but sitting/standing up at dinner was a little tricky (dress kept getting stuck under my heels/chair). Getting into Uber took some finesse, too. It was not heavy to wear. I wore silver/diamond jewelry, and it looked great.

Princess Gown

This dress was gorgeous! I ordered a 4R and my backup size was 2R, which was still really big and long on me. But overall, I received a ton of compliments and would order again--just a smaller size. #MarineCorpBall

Stunning red dress, unfortunately too large on the breast and can't stay in place. I will have to order one size smaller

Beautiful ball gown

It's a gorgeous piece of work. Rented this for a family Christmas photoshoot as a part of my unlimited. Endless fabric which I personally love! Very princess in red kind of vibe. I went for the L length since I had almost no moving to do. And it was pretty long. Which was great! Made me look tall lol

Beautiful

This dress is beyond beautiful. I am so in love, but it's too small. I was so sad. I wasn't even close to zipping this past my busy. I'm usually between a 12/14 and this was on the smaller size of a 12. I would say it fits closer to a 10. So sad! If I ever lose weight I'll try again. Sadly it's not available in a large size. :(

Too small in bust!

I ordered two different dresses in two different sizes because back up sizes were not available. I am between a 10 and 12 primarily due to larger bust size- 38D. I ordered this dress in the 10R and specifically chose this dress based on reviews and photos of women with larger busts. It would have been a great dress had it fit. It is a gorgeous dress but I could not get the back to zip even with help of two different people. I don't even have a very wide back but there was no give in the fabric. I was unable to wear this dress. The other dress I chose (12) was too big so I wasted a lot of money and was unable to wear either. Very disappointed with RTR this time.

Stunning - compliments all night

I have never received more compliments before. Its absolutely beautiful. It runs a full size small like most Bagley Mischa dresses, so size up for sure! The actual quality of the dress is amazing, thick material but yet it doesn't weigh you down. RENT THIS DRESS! One downside, the stitching on the zipper was completely loose so I had to pin the inside to make sure it would hold all night, which it did. But I suppose that comes with renting a dress and no one else noticed

Nutcracker sensation

I loved this dress so much. The color was divine and the depth of the dress (and pockets) was stunning. My biggest complaint and reason it did not get 5 stars was that it was so silly long! I wore 6in heels and still could barely walk given that it was still dragging on the floor. There were so many layers that to walk I would have to hold the dress up. If you are 5'10 or above it will work if you wear heels but if you are 5'4 like myself, even 6in heels will be hard to navigate!

Compliments galore!

This dress certainly stands out at the party! Got tons and tons of compliments. Fits true to size other than the length. I'm 5'3" and needed to wear a 4" platform heel so that the dress didn't drag the ground.

REaDy for NYE

This dress was amazing! A real showstopper! It was a the perfect length with heels and I felt like a queen. I toyed with different jewelry options and everything worked simple or statement jewelry.

The BEST dress for a holiday function. It was a little difficult to dance in because I'm only 5'3" but not impossible. It's feels sturdy even strapless but not too heavy.

Engagement photos taken on winter beach in AK.

The color was stunning and the fit was so flattering! Perfect for Engagement Photo shoot. Would rent again for formal event as well. Long. I am 5'5" and without heels the dress was impossible to walk in freely.

I'm a 34c, 5'4". The dress fit perfectly in the busy. Length was a little long, but I had some 2 inch heels that made it the prefect length. Loved this dress!

Lady in Red!

This dress was everything- formal, eye-catching, comfortable, well-made...and pockets!! True to size. The only negative is that it arrived wrinkled since it has so much fabric and is shipped in a small box. Just needed a bit of steam!

Felt like the Queen of the ball!

The material and rich red color of this dress are what make it so glamorous! I wore this as the host/emcee at a black tie awards event. Unfortunately, since it was so close post- holidays, the only length that was available was long (I'm 5'5") and I almost tripped when walking or stepping onto the stage, but small price to pay for elegance! I'm typically a 4, but small on top so the 2 fit perfectly snug, and with the weight of the dress I think 4 would have pulled down too much. Unbelievable dress!

It's a statement dress

I saw all the customer pictures and reviews for this dress and fell in love. I love the princess feel it gives you. Super regal but still a movable dress. I was originally super worried about length because all the reviews said it runs long. It does, but with a little bit of heel (I only wore 3 in) it's not too bad. People did step on it at times but it was fine. So so so many compliments! Great if you want to make a statement. Also unlike other dresses, it shows up just as well on camera as it does in person!

So many compliments!

I wore this to the MBA prom and I received compliments all night! The fit was perfect, although it did take some effort to zip the dress up. It stayed on and didn't flinch. The red colour of the dress is perfect. Not too gaudy and not too mellow. Highly recommended if you have an hourglass figure! :)

More components then I have every received EVER! Didn't want to take it off!

I have rented a ton from RTR and this HANDS DOWN was my favorite gown I've ever worn. I literally didn't want to take it off.. I wore it for my Med schools gala and it was perfect! It is a little long so at 5'2" I had to wear some pretty high heels. The 6R was very slightly longer then the 4R which is the size I ended up wearing! This dress is SO gorgeous!

Beautiful dress, if a bit long. Found myself carrying the skirt when I walked, despite wearing 3 inch heels. Stunning fit and fabric, incredibly flattering, I felt like a princess all night! My first RTR, but it won't be my last.

Gorgeous dress

I'm 6'1" about 175 and ordered the 10L. It fit perfect with my heels which is AMAZING being a tall girl it's nearly impossible to find a dress I can wear heels with and not see my feet.

Beautiful color, material, and fit

Loved this dress so much it just ran a tad long but I made it work. I am 5'3" and needed 5 inch heels and dress still touched the floor. Also runs a bit large in my opinion. The 0R fit like a glove but I normally wear a 2-4 in formal wear. I am very small chested however (A cup).

This dress was stunning! Fit beautifully and was comfortable to wear!! I did need to steam it when it arrived - with the amount of volume to the dress and being shipped with two others it was noticeably wrinkled even after hanging for a day.

Beautiful, easy, comfortable and POCKETS

I rented a 12R and 10P I'm 5ft4 150 32DDD and the measurements were more comparable with the 12 but the 10 fit like a dream. The petite option made a huge difference for being a short girl. I wore 1in heals and was comfortable dancing and socializing the night away. I got so many compliments on the gown and the color but my favorite part of the dress was the pockets that were seriously a game changer for formal events. Stop stressing and just rent the runway. You won't regret it.

The dress is well made but very heavy. I'm 5'8 1/2" and the long was too long even with heels so it was hard to get around. Lots of compliments when I stood still. Ha!

Stunning

I wore this dress to a gala. It was absolutely amazing and I received so many compliments! It was definitely long. I am 5'5, wore 5 inch heels, and I still had to pick up the dress in the front a little to walk without the fear of tripping. My bust is small, so if you have a bigger bust, I would say to size up. The top fit my measurements perfectly (32B).
