Perfect Dress for a Formal Affair

This dress was wonderful! It ran true to my size and was very comfortable. Some of the other reviews said the petite was too short, but I thought the length was perfect with three inch heels. Just long enough that I was not tripping over it. I did not realize it from the picture, but the beading on the shoulder actually has a hint of turquoise, which was a nice pop of color. I received lots of compliments on this one!

I wish I could buy this!!!!

This was my backup choice, but I am so glad my first choice didn't fit! I haven't felt this beautiful since my wedding, which was 14 years ago. I love everything about this dress; I wish I could buy it! The cut is so flattering, and so perfect that I didn't need a strapless bra or pantyhose (both of which I hate)! If you're thinking about renting this, do it! You won't be sorry!!

The dress is SO easy to wear and comfortable! It fit so nicely; even in the length. I am 5'0" and 110 pounds and it was perfect with a heel.

Didn't wear, too short

I am not tall, and this dress wasn't long enough. Unlike the model photos, the ones I put on (0/2) were shorter in the front and longer in the back. I was thankful I decided to rent a backup dress too.

Did not Wear.

Dress has a really nice fitted fit with and is made with very nice material however it runs real short as mentioned on the other reviews. I made a mistake and did not read the reviews before renting this gown and was not able to use it because the dress was too short once I punt heels on.

Fits true to size. It's close fitting so shows underwear lines so choose wisely.

Perfect for petites

I typically rent knee length/cocktail dresses because I am 4' 10 1/2" and worry long dresses will be too long. With 1 1/2 inch heals this dress just grazed the floor. I wore with 3" heels to be sure not to step on it. Received many compliments. Very comfortable. No spanks required. No bra needed. Would definitely recommend. I wore the 2R (2 petite wasn't available for my dates). 4P was my back-up. Length on that was good, but was too big/loose.

Gorgeous, forgiving material in a flattering style! Stayed comfortable all evening. Runs short!

I keep gravitating to one shoulder dresses like this one as they combine sexy with comfort, and provide more shoulder/back room for athletic built ladies like myself. This dress' thick yet stretchy material smooths over all problem areas; it felt fabulous, while remaining breathable! Depending on your needs, you could where a bra with one strap for support. I went with Braza stickers and had no issues with comfort or form. Please note that, length wise, this dress runs short! At 5'2", the 2R still fell short of my shoes. My massive heals were quite visible, which didn't bother me, but I'm not a fashionista striving for perfection. If you're over 5 ft tall, I recommend ordering this in a Long.

Definitely get Long! I ordered 2R+4R while I am 5'5'', 120 lbs, 34B-27-36, wore 4 inch heels and the dress was to my ankles. The dress would need to be 2-3 inches longer to reach the floor.

Perfect for an outdoor formal dining event, theater and then an extensive outdoor street party.

This dress was perfect for the multifaceted event I attended. Formal enough for the formal dining event, comfortable enough for a visit ti the theater, and fun enough for a walk through several streets for an outdoor street party. Very flattering. I suggest a one piece shapewear as the dress's fabric does show lines of undergarments. All in all, so happy I ordered this dress! NOTE: I was lucky that the 10L fit well, as the 12L had loose beads on the strap and looked very unseemly.

I wore this dress to a wedding and I received so many compliments!!! The length is short, but it didn't bother me at all. The top of the dress was a little big, especially on the side with the zipper, but no one noticed besides myself. I'd highly recommend this dress to anyone.

This dress fit great! It was comfortable and the fabric was heavy and quality. It was elegant and sexy! I was surprised that the length was so short. I usually struggle with things being too long. I was wearing 3 inch heels in this picture and the dress didn't touch the ground at all.

...

This dress was amazing; however, like most reviews stated the length of the dress was short. I rented a 0R ( the long was not available), and a 2L for the back up. I ultimately wore the 2L because the length was just the way I wanted it. If you are small bust like myself, the size 2 may fit a little loose.

great and forgiving dress.

I was concerned with my midsection from having babies, but all was well. I wore a waist trimmer so there was no gut hanging out. A wee bit long, but I had 3 inch heels and I was good!

Safe black tie option

Beautiful, timeless dress. It's a safe choice but not boring. The fabric is stretchy but thin, plan on getting some spanx or control hose to smooth out the torso. You could literally see the outline of belly button with out it. The dress was the perfect length for me with 4 in heels but I'm very short, so consider a lower heel or flat shoe. The beeding on the shoulder is a mix of silver, black and blue/ green.

Comfortable and Flattering

This dress is very flattering and comfortable to wear. The details are very elegant and you do not need a lot of jewelry to dress up this look. My only complaint is that I ordered a 2L and the hem still seemed to be a little bit short of ideal.

Short!

Luxurious drape, stretchy thick fabric. Bust seemed large, narrow hips. I am probably a true 14L (5'9", 180), this was only available in 12L--top was a little loose, through hips was tight but manageable with shape wear. The tag said 12, I don't think I received the 12L. It was very short (about 4 inches above the ankle). Dress flares like a mermaid so the length was a deal breaker. The sparkly detail at the shoulder is more teal which was very pretty.

subtle, stylish

great dress. didn't end up wearing it, but it was a great weight, fit, and style. i'm tempted to rent it again for an upcoming event, but will probably steer clear of black because everyone wears it. the subtle detail on the arm and the slight drape is super classy - if you have a black tie function, or a 'black and white ball' - do consider this one.

Law School Formal

I wore this for my fiance's law school formal in March about a week after we got engaged, so I was already on Cloud 9. The 4 fit perfectly except for in the bust--I had to pin that to my strapless bra because otherwise the girls would've been popping out all night. Other than that, it fit comfortably everywhere else. I ordered the 2 as well, but that was just "a little" too tight in my midsection at the time. I liked this dress because it was elegant, but had a fun twist to it with the beaded one shoulder detail and the little draped cape in the back. As for length, I found the R perfect because I wore 3" heels with a 1" platform and that showed just enough foot and also wasn't difficult to walk around in.

Great dress but VERY short!

Great dress, but definitely order the long! I'm 5'2" and it didn't touch the ground without shoes on! I ended up wearing a very short heel but would have preferred a higher heel. It's a nice material and lays well (except the side zipper). I just had a baby and I felt very comfortable in the dress. The jewels are a silver/blue color, so gold accessories don't match well.

Caution! VERY Short but beautiful

This was my first RTR experience and I wanted to say that I appreciate the support and responsiveness of the company. I rented this dress after reading the reviews that it runs short. I'm about 5'5"-5'6" and thought I'd be able to get away with the regular even though they reviews suggested long. Well I should of listened. The overall fit was great, runs true to size BUT the regular came up to my ankles. I was in a panic as that the wedding was tomorrow and I had no back up. I called RTR and they were able to I might me a dress for the cost of shipping (12.99). The dress is thick so there was very little difference from the 2 to the 4 regular which I ordered. They did not have a two or a four long so I took a gamble and went with a six long. It was a tad big but was great. I'm normally a size four. However I had kitten heels on as if I would of worn anything taller, the dress would of been too short again. If you are above 5'3" and plan to wear three inch heels. Please please order a long and save yourself hassle. I really don't know how someone 5'5" and wearing 3 inch heels could make due with a long. I got a ton of compliments and felt great. Even with the mishap, I'd definitely order from RTR again !

Short Short Short

Dress was comfortable and great to wear. I'm 5'5", 145, 36C and dress fit perfectly everywhere-except the length. I had to wear flats and my entire foot still was showing, dress hit right at my ankles. Being kinda short I was figured the 6L would be OK. I would not wear my hair near the shoulder decoration either. My hair kept getting stuck in it all night. Overall liked the dress except the length. Great experience with RTR also-even from Hawaii I received my dress the day before I was suppose to.

Made Prom Perfect!

Dress hugs curves like a dream in all the right places. Looks sexy and classy. Only thing I didn't like was that it is had to tell in the pictures, but the beading is a little "grandmothery" also I am 5'0" and the regular size 0 still showed my whole shoe and I wore a shorter heel. Didn't bother me personally too much, but definitely noticeable in pictures. All together I felt elegant and received many compliments.
