Left disappointed.
I was left pretty disappointed with this dress. It was my first choice and I had been so excited to wear it. I am 3 months post-partum and this dress really didn't do me any favors. I am 5'5", 143lbs, and a 34C. This dress sure fits differently on different body types, because I read all the reviews of women who shared my same height and weight, and no one else had the issues I did with the fit. I ordered it in a 6R and 8R. Both were far too large. RTR overnighted me a 4R and it fit much better, but the fabric still felt very bulky and heavy on my frame. The length in a 4R was perfect with 1.5" heels and I am 5'5".

I received compliments on my on how sleek and classy the dress is. I felt beautiful
The dress fit me perfectly. It did not cling to any of my unwanted curves, yet complemented my shape. I wore a 3 inch heel with it, and it seemed to be the appropriate length.

Great when rocking a bump!
I wore this dress to my husband's military ball and got tons of compliments- especially on the fact that it's navy not black. I was 32 weeks 3 days (was measuring at 29 weeks if that's helpful to any pregnant ladies) pregnant and super nervous about wearing a non maternity dress but this ended up being a great option- very old school glam. The top was a teeny bit big and I needed some tape to make sure I didn't show a little too much tata but I LOVED that I was able to wear a regular bra with it. I wish I had thought about shoes a little more- I only had a few pairs of heels high enough to wear (dress was long so I needed high ones) and the ones I opted for had gems on them...I worried about them catching on the dress all night. This is a fabulous dress!

Great dress. Fit true to size. Not too heavy and the sequins didn't itch. Got lots of compliments and really enjoyed wearing this dress! This was actually sent as. A backup Bexauae the dress I ordered was returned damaged and I'm glad they sent this option!

I was a sparkly diva.
I didn't look quite as great as I hoped, I think a different style of dress looks better on me, but the dress itself was fine. It was very comfortable ( if a little itchy round the arms but with sequins what can you do?)

Tons of Compliments on this very gorgeous dress.
Very nice dress in good condition. It runs a tad long and I was glad I had 5" heels to pair with the regular length and my 5'4" height. Like others, it was a tad snug at the rib cage, where the gathered fabric has no give, due to how it was sewed. I use fabric tape to keep the straps in place. Paired with a red velvet bag, it was a perfect statement on Valentine's Day amidst sea of red and black dresses.

The dress was beautiful and I received many compliments.
The dress was true to size. The necklace was very beautiful as well! Lots of compliments and felt very elegant. I was looking for a classic look and this dress fit that image perfectly. The sequins do rub your skin under your arms as you dance and move around in this dress. It also marked up my satin gloves, that was one thing that I noticed toward the end of the evening. The sequins rubbing is probably the only complaint I have about it. I was nervous about the length as I am 5'2" but with my heels it was not a problem. We had to move our time to leave up so I had to contact RTR bc the dress was arriving on the same day. They made sure my dress made it to me on time which was much appreciated! Will def use RTR again very awesome experience. Thanks again!!

Very flattering dress that brought many compliments!
I wore this beautiful dress to the American Heart Association Gala. It was the perfect dress and no one had on like it! Someone I don't know even came up to me and took a video of me walking in the lights because the reflection was so beautiful!! Only downfall was the zipper was hard to get up, but with some prying it was no problem at all! I am 5 foot 4 and generally wear a size 8 and medium tops, the size 8 I got for perfect!

This dress got so many compliments- the color was perfect and the cut was flawless.
Flatters in all the right places and is forgiving in the tummy and hips! Be sure to get fashion tape if you are going for a more conservative look.

I sparkled all night!!
I rented this dress for a formal wedding, and it was great. I was 24 weeks pregnant and not sure of the sizing or how the fit would accommodate my bump. This dress did not disappoint. I will say the 10R was a little large at the top which I expected because I sized up for my bump, but it wasn't too noticeable. Please note, you will need some help zipping. I wore the dress with 4.5 inch heels. Which made the dress a little short (didn't cover my shoes completely), but if you plan to wear a lower heel this dress is an A+. I got complemented all night!!! This was my second rental and I would definitely rent again.

I felt so glamorous in this dress!
Fit true to size although I maybe could have worn the 0 - the straps could have been a bit tighter and it was definitely too long. But I was able to pin it up without trouble and it was unnoticeable. Got a lot of compliments and felt fabulous wearing it!

Should have ordered a Long instead of regular. Ended up wearing kitten heels instead of my stilettos.

Stunning
I loved this dress! It wasn't too heavy or irritating with the sequins- as per other reviews. I was actually long enough for me to wear 2" heels and it still hit the floor perfectly! There was a ton of cleavage but thankfully I got to wear a great push-up bra with no issues! I highly recommend this dress for formal events! We went to the Submarine Ball

I love how exact the shipping is & how beautiful the dresses are! & I love the size options.
It was a beautiful fit, I was so nervous it would be too big but it was perfect. I'm 5'7 and got the long it was maybe a little too long but still loved it! 5'7 is such an awkward height when it comes to finding clothes. It was comfortable, the sequins weren't a problem. Overall it was a great experience & I will be using this website again & recommending it to friends.

I was a chaperone for a high school prom and didn't want to look like one of the seniors at the prom
The fit was perfect. I have a wider back but had no trouble getting the zipper up. Very flattering with the empire waist. I was able to wear a normal bra with it as well. I received many compliments on this dress!

It fits so well and you can wear a regular bra with it! Such a plus, but I did have to go with a 0 when I'm normally a 3-4. It was beautiful, eye-catching, and super comfy!

Five months pregnant and still comfortable and elegant. Received a ton of compliments.
This dress came in on time and in great condition. The zipper was a little difficult to get all the way up because it would get caught in the middle, but with help from a fellow bridesmaid it was doable. I was five months pregnant and twenty pounds up from my usual weight, so I sized up to the 8L from a 6. I'm 5'8" and wore 3 inch heels, so I'm glad I got the 8L. The front is very baby bump friendly, I had plenty of room for baby and to hit up the buffet a couple times. I received many compliments on the dress, which was surprisingly demure considering that it's covered in sequins. I think because it was a beautiful dark blue and it was an evening wedding it managed to be elegant and fun at the same time.

Fit great and received compliments galore!
This dress is awesome! It fit great, was very easy to wear and I was happy with how it looked. I typically wear a 4 and it felt a little big so I wore the 2 instead. I had to safety pin the front so it was more appropriate for a family wedding, which also made it more comfortable for me to jump around while dancing. I was really worried about the length because I am 5'5" but the length was fine once I put on tall heels.

I got so many compliments!!
This is a very form flattering gown. I am busty up top and pretty straight from there so the cinch at the waist really gave me shape. It was extremely comfortable and I could wear a regular bra. The gown was the perfect length in the Regular on my 5'6" frame with 2.5" heels! This was my first time renting and I was really happy with the result. Normally I am a size 8 but the dress they sent me in the 8 was a different but similar looking dress. Thank god the 6 worked out!!

Great fit, super flattering!
It runs pretty true to size, maybe a little on the large side. There is definitely plenty of room in the chest area, I had to pin it shut. It is a beautiful and comfortable dress. I highly recommend!

Loved this dress!!
The fit was wonderful. This dress was perfect for our event. It has a lovely drape that is very forgiving on the lower part of the body. I had a bit of a hard time with the zipper where the fabric was thicker under the bust. But my husband eventually got it.

Classy evening dress!
I rented this dress for my company holiday party. I'm 5'4" and about ~135 pounds. The size 6 fit pretty well, except that it showed more cleavage than I really wanted for a work party (I'm 34D). I used fashion tape and that helped a lot! It was a fun, glamorous dress to wear and I got tons of compliments. Zipper was a little sticky but I expected that with the heavy sequined fabric. Was a very flattering shape. This was my first RTR and I'll definitely do it again when the occasion calls for it!

Getting 2 dresses that saved my procrastinating self
Beautifully gown . A little "drippy" for my taste but again, it's beautiful. I wanted a 4l but it was unavailable so I got the 2l and 6L. The 2L fit perfect, just a little short for me once I put on heels.

Pretty dress- just not for me
Fit was perfect but if you have a small waist the fabric adds weight and gives you the opposite effect of what you are looking for. Great for someone who carries some weight in the middle but I carry mine in other places so just not for me. 5'3" and length was great with heels. Very pretty dress just not flattering for my body type.

Stunning dress
Great dress to wear when I was 5 months pregnant. I normally wear anywhere between a 0-2. I ordered the 2L and 4 and wore the 2L. The 2 was a bit snug in the rib cage area but this was due to my recent pregnancy weight gain, not uncomfortable at all. The 4 was too big in the top and keep following off my shoulders. I order the long because I like to wear heels. I wore 4 inch heels with the dress. As always a great experience with RTR.

Fit true to size and only itched some in the army when rubbed but other than that I loved it so much!!

Awesome
This was my backup dress but I actually used it instead of my first choice. Beautiful dress. Thick material which was good for me since I wore it out on a very cold night. It shows off curves nicely though the picture doesn't show it. It's nicely fitted and does not bunch up anywhere. Would definitely use it again.

Gorgeous gown!
I am true size 8 but was able to wear the size 6R in this dress, which is why I say it runs big. I was confused by the fact that RTR sent a completely different dress in the size 8 - this is my first experience with RTR so maybe they send similar dresses if your size is out of stock?? Anyhow, luckily the 6R fit me perfectly and the mistake would not keep me from using RTR again. The dress was well kept and arrived on time! It was very comfortable... not at all scratchy from the sequins. I wore 3 inch heels and it was the perfect length, as well! Definitely loved feeling like royalty in this gown!

I wore this dress for my school's prom.
Due to my lack of height, this dress was too long for me. To prevent stepping on the dress throughout the night, I invested in some fashion tape and tape the bottom hem of the dress to the right length. The zipper is a little difficult to work with at times, but it shouldn't be a huge problem. Other than the length, the dress fit perfectly and was a beautiful success. I wish I could have kept the dress!

Amazing. Amazing. Amazing.
This dress was unbelievably glamorous. I wore it for my senior prom and got many compliments throughout the night. Originally, I ordered the Meteor Shower Gown, but the day before it was supposed to arrive, I received a phone call and email saying that the 0R was now unavailable. RTR made it so incredibly easy to fix the situation. I quickly picked out this dress and they sent me the 2R of the Meteor Shower Gown and the 0R and 2R of this gown. It ended up being a blessing in disguise! This dress fit PERFECTLY and was so comfortable and all around fabulous. The customer service was superb, I couldn't have been more pleased. Can't wait to be able to RTR again!

Beautiful color
Beautiful color, but very heavy fabric (good for winter). Felt a bit like a costume. It's also extremely long; I would've had to pin it up to wear with 3" heals.
