The color of this dress is unbelievably vivid, it truly glows, a show stopper.

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I knocked off two stars because of the fit and the train. The description does not include the train, it has one so beware. Second, it runs very large. I am normally a 6 and got the 4 as my back-up. Both were falling off me. I ending up with a 2, that was still large. In addition, the dress does not have the proper boning to support the weight of the dress, it is very heavy. It was beautiful and people commented on how amazing it looked. But I was pulling it up all night, even with double stick tape. If I had had more time, I would of purchased a low backed corset type undergarment that I could of secured the dress to. Also it was my first experience with sequins and I had visible abrasions on both of my arms the next day.

Extremely long!

Beautiful dress! Tried to wear with 5" heel with 2" platform- at least 2" too long in front and even worse with train in back. Can't imagine how anyone 5"4 or less could ever wear this dress. Hoped they had sent me the long by mistake but was a regular. My backup dress was perfect so I had a great experience anyway.

I felt like a movie star in this dress, constantly told to never get rid of it!

Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I'm 5'5 and was planning to wear 4-5 inch heels so I purchased the size 4 long and 6 long versions, but both were still too long. I ended up wearing the 4 long, but probably could have even gone down to the size 2 as I had to tape the dress up. It's a heavy dress,but so beautiful, I highly suggest renting it...this was for a black tie gala in DC and I've never received so many compliments.

Absoutely gorgeous and sexy! But heavy and runs large... and very long!

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I actually couldn't wear this due to it running very large (even though I ordered one size down as a second size). But it was stunning and great length with heels, and aside from its looseness I would have been even more impressed had I found some spanx. (I don't know how it relates to body image, but I am into not looking like a serpent after feeding.) The mesh material in the top front and back gave it a naughty mysterious look. Absolutely gorgeous; my dad quipped about whether I fancied myself to be some kinda movie star, and I took that as a compliment. ;)

This dress was absolutely STUNNING. I was a real-life mermaid.

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this dress to a formal school event. I got compliments all night long. The dress does run large and long. I ordered both the 4L and the 2R (they didn't have 2L available) and I'm so happy I did. I ended up wearing the 2R with 3.5 inch heels and the length was perfect. I had never worn a sequined dress before, so I didn't realize how weighed it would be. It was heavy, but nothing a little strategic pinning couldn't take care of. Something to be aware of, because of the weight, it pulled the dress shape down and doesn't cinch in at the waist as much as I would have liked. I also have a very small waist line and tend to like to have that accentuated. Despite these small hiccups, the dress was amazing. Everyone told me I looked like a mermaid (which was fitting, as the party was on a yacht :) ), especially with the small train the dress has. The pattern is so flattering and I felt so beautiful all night.

I stood out from the crowd at prom and got so many compliments! Not for flat chested ladies though.

Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress came in on time and in pristine condition! It's a BEAUTIFUL dress and I wore it with gold jewelry which worked wonderfully! I threw on some 3.5" heels and the length was PERFECT. I did have some problems though. 1) it was heavy, but not too bad once I had it on. 2) the sequins scratched my arms and others people's arms. And finally 3) boobs. I couldn't wear a normal bra with the dress and have nothing to keep it up with, and the dress was so heavy that fashion tape didn't work. So we found some cute ribbon and pinned it on to prevent flashing. It worked but it hurt. None of these were problems with the site or designer, just, well, my boobs. To summarize; go with a smaller size , and have boobs. Boobs are key. It was an amazing dress, and I really stood out wonderfully at my prom.

Overall fit: Large

The dress was so stunning, everyone loved it and I was getting compliments all night long. It runs large! I would go down at least one size, if not two. The fabric is pretty heavy so the snugger it is, the better. I wish i could have had the size 2, but I didn't have the option. The length was fine for me with about 4.5 inch heels. Showstopper. Would recommend it for anyone

I wore this dress to my senior prom. The color of the dress is actually green and very bright, compared to the photo online. This dress is quite heavy, but that didnt take away from its beauty. I got so many compliments throughout the night! Definately a StandOut dress. Loved it!

I did receive many compliments when I wore this dress...it made an impact!

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This was supposed to be an 8 in a different dress and this was sent because the other dress had been damaged. I had ordered a petite in the dress and this doesn't come in petite, so it was about 6 inches too long for me. The dress is also heavy due to all the sequins and it was a bit big on me, so I spent most of the night holding it up or readjusting because it kept falling down. If it had fit better, I might have liked it more.

Absolutely Stunning Gown!! I just wish they made it in a size smaller than 0 because it ran too big

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
The gown arrived in pristine condition; it was gorgeous, well-made and when I tried it on, my husband was floored. I had read the reviews prior to ordering it and I read that I ran long and large. I normally wear a 2R so I ordered a 2 and a 0. I am 5"4 and I had on 4 inch heals and the size 0 still pooled around my feet like a blanket and was too loose in the waist. I had read that it was heavy and it definitely is. I wear a 34B and I definitely did NOT have the chest-equipment to keep that bad-boy up, so I would have had to pull on it all night long. If the gown came in a size smaller than 0 and they made it short, I would have swapped it for a smaller size. I recommend this gown for TALL girls with CURVES to hold it up because the gown has a wow factor that is unparalleled. If you fit that profile, then I suggest you give this gown a shot; don't be dissuaded by my review, I'm just trying to give other readers as much info as possible so you can make an informed decision. Best of luck!

The perfect mermaid dress...if you can get the right size

Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
My experience with RTR was fantastic. I originally rented a different dress that looked terrible on me and the customer service representatives were awesome in finding a new look last minute and shipping it overnight. Because it was last minute, the size needed for this dress was unavailable. I has seen the reviews and was looking to size down to a 4R but only the long was available. Honestly, a 2 would have been the right size for me. The dress was about a foot too long for me. I also got the 6R and that was a very long dress as well. How I got this dress to work was I wore a strapless bra and added breast enhancer inserts to make the top of the dress tighter. Then, I wore the highest stripper heels I could find (6 inches)...then I took loungerie tape and taped the top of the dress as well as "hemmed" the lower front part of the dress about 3 inches with the tape. This is an absolute gorgeous dress and I received great compliments but wish I could have gotten the right size...which was not RTR doing.

Beautiful, gorgeous dress... but deadly

Size worn: 12L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
RTR sent this dress as a second option when the dress I previously ordered was unavailable. I loved how I looked in it, everyone said I looked like a mermaid, which if that's what you're going for... My only complaint is that I have never worn a sequined dress before and was unaware of how it can rub and give you rug burn. It actually scratched and cut up my arms. It was so painful that I couldn't put my arms down all night. If you are a more experienced sequined dress wearer than me and know what you are getting into, go for it. The dress is gorgeous.

I wore this dress to my senior prom. The dress is very heavy, and touch painful to rub your arms against. Also, decently sized boobs are a must for this dress. Regardless, I couldn't be happier with my selection. This dress is vibrant, beautiful, and extremely unique. I got TONS of compliments all night long, and got told by over a dozen people I looked like a mermaid. I was sad to part with it.

Loved the dress!! It was alittle hard keeping it to stay up on top but overall one of the best dresses I've rented. I also added the long black gloves for a fun touch made the dress even more special. So happy I rented for prom it made the shopping experience 10x easier. I would suggest this dress to anyone it adds glam to any night.

I am 5'4" 123 lbs and normally wear a size 2-4 dress. The size 2r was falling off my rib cage it was so big ( I wear a 32B bra). Order a size or two down when selecting this dress. The fabric was very thick, heavy and itchy, but beautiful. If worn all night it would have chaffed under one's arms.

I usually wear a 14 and ordered a 16 as a back-up; could not get the 14 to zip up and ended up wearing the 16. If you are short like me (I am 5'1), be sure to have tall heels as mine did drag a bit even with 5 inch heels. The only downside was that the sequins caught on other fabrics, but everyone did compliment me on it.

I rented the 6R, but the dress was too big and too long. Natasha, from Customer Service made sure I received the dress in the size 4R in time for my event. She was amazingly helpful, and so nice! My mermaid costume was a huge hit at my friend's Halloween party. The size 4R wasn't too long with heels. I would definitely rent again, and possibly go down another size. The dress was a bit big from waist up. Throughout the night I was pulling up the top.

It was so so beautiful but so scratchy. By the end of the night I looked like I got attacked by my cats. So many compliments and stares on this dress. I normally wear a 2-4 and i wish I would've ordered a 0. I ended up with the 2R and being 5'2 it was a little long on me even with 5+ inch heels. I kept having to pull it up because it definitely runs large. Overall the Pros overcame the cons because it was just so darn beautiful.

Compliments all night at Hotel Bel Air!

Size worn: 0L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This gown stands out from the crowd! We attended a black tie wedding at Hotel Bel Air, and people approached me all night to say how awesome this dress was. Loved the mesh detailing in the front and back, and the sequins photographed so well. This dress is very heavy, so for small chested people like myself I would go a size down. The fabric stretches up top where the mesh is, but has little give in the rest of the bodice. I was right on the border for a 0R and 0L, so I ordered the hem tape the stylist recommended and it worked well, I ended up taking the dress up 1". If I could do it again I would try the 0R. My heels were 5.5".

Dress was phenomenal! I went with the 14r and 12r; runs big so I wore the 12. It is VERY long--my shoes had to be at least 4". I'm 5'4, so you can gauge. I thought it was beautiful; so did everyone else. The sequins can rub a bit under the arms so be careful, plus a bit heavy b/c of the material--but would definitely do it again!

Loved the dressed. There was an error in my initial order. I requested a size 14L (although I wear a 12 to accommodate for post baby weight), but the dress was lost. The only available size in this dress was 16L. I took it. I had to pull up the dress often and some photos revealed the bust lining. I probably could have worn a 12. The picture did not give the dress justice. AN AWESOME DRESS that paired well with my mink. Would love to have this dress for my very own!!!!!

Gorgeous gown!

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I co-chaired a debutante ball in July, and this was a perfect dress for the occasion. It does run VERY large as I normally wear 6-8 in dresses and the 2 was almost loose. I think it has to do with the mesh in the back not being very elastic-y, but I was never concerned that the dress would fall. I couldn't wear a normal strapless bra with this dress, but not because of the back. The front mesh goes pretty low too, so I went to VS and bought a sticky bra that has a deep U shape in the front and that worked out well. I received SO many compliments and the dress was super comfortable. I am 5'8" and wore flats with this dress, and the hem fell just above the ground. I was really happy with this rental!

This dress is definitely made for those who like to stand out! I enjoyed compliments all night!

Size worn: 16L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I found the dress to be very true to the reviews I had read in that I felt it was true-to-size but perhaps slightly large in the bust area. I'm a 38D and wore a very...accentuating...strapless bra and still had to shimmy the dress up every now and then. I highly recommend investing in a low-back or black strapless bra, as it most likely will peek through the mesh areas just a bit. I preferred the length of the dress as it pooled just slightly at the floor, but to be fair, I was wearing flats. I'm just not a fan of showing a lot of ankle and/or shoe when standing still. The dress is a bit heavier than most other formal gowns I've worn due to the sequins, but I didn't find it to be burdensome. Overall, it was extremely comfortable sitting, standing and dancing. A gorgeous mermaid-esque effect that I loved!

Stunning Gown

Size worn: 0L

The dress was beautiful and perfect for a Mardi Gras ball. The 0 was a little stretched out at the top and slightly too short so I wore the 0 long and it was the perfect length with 3 inch heels. Overall the dress was stunning and everyone kept staring.

Too heavy/intense

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This was a last minute replacement dress as the other one I ordered was too short. I'm 5'6.5"- 5'7" and apparently am right in between a Regular and a Long length dress... :( The day before NYE, there weren't too many other options but I was intrigued by this dress! It was shipped directly to the hotel so I couldn't try on and figure out the underwear scene first. The 8R was just a little too tight and the 10L was too long even with the 3 inch heels I brought. It's very heavy due to all of the sequins and bunched in the middle. The back has a sheer panel so any strapless bras are noticeable which was one of my final deterrents to wearing it - other than the fact I'd be hitching it up, having to hold my skirt up all night and such. It is SO STRIKING in person... I felt like a mermaid! Wish the fit would've worked out better.
