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.

Lovely dress, very high quality.
This dress was very nice. It did hug a little to closely to my stomach, even with Spanx I felt it drew attention to my mid-section too much for my liking. The length was perfect. I would have worn this but I went with the Slate & Willow tuxedo wrap gown instead.

Cute dress, but WAY too short
I ordered the 2 regular and a 4 petite and they both fit the same--comfortable fit everywhere except the length. I'm only 5'2" and I read the reviews thinking, "oh great! This dress runs short so it won't be crazy long on me"... Well I wasn't expecting it to be THAT short. I would ONLY order this dress if you are really little, like under 5 feet tall. Otherwise, if you're cool with your feet and ankles showing, it's a really pretty dress.

I am not tall, and this dress was ankle length, so you could see my shoes. I didn't like the way that looked, it was tight, and maybe that was why? I think I would have liked it much better in size 8, but it wasn't available.

Pretty dress. Form fitting.
Very elegant classic dress. I read a lot of the reviews before I rented the dress. And I do agree that seems a little short in the front. I wore the four regular. I'm 5'3 ..but I had sparkly heels on and it looked like I was showcasing my shoes. I wish I had a picture to show you that was full length but I don't sorry! Is cut it little longer in the back. If I could've got the long I would have but they didn't have it in stock when I needed it.

Even the long is too short.
Went to a gala event. Read the reviews that said it ran short, but the long length wasn't available in my size (4). Ordered a 4R and a 6L, ended up with the 6L. The 4R was laughably short... it hit ABOVE my ankles in flats. With shapewear. The 6L was better... but in 2.5" heels, most of my shoes showed. It hit just above the floor in flats. Because of the shape of the dress, and the way the bottom flares out, it hangs better when you wear heels. Some of the beadwork was coming loose, but nothing too bad. Fit wise, the top was actually a bit big (which is not normally a problem for me in a 6)... I ended up having to tape down the armpit to keep it from gaping. It definitely needs shapewear to keep you from looking lumpy-bumpy. Overall, I liked the way the dress hung, and accentuated curves... but in retrospect, I wish I'd picked something a lot longer.

The quality of this dress was amazing. Will make you feel like a queen.
I am 5"5. The dress didn't hit the floor. I do have hips and a butt so maybe if you don't have that, it would hit the floor. I usually wear regular length dresses and wear 2 inch heels and the dresses hit the floor. Not the case here. But was a great dress! Highly recommend!

The one I received the zipper had been stretched a bit so I couldn't wear it but it was beautiful.
The one I received looked like someone with a larger stomach may have worn it prior and put some stretch and strain into the zipper so it didn't lay flat even though there was room to move. It also does run short, I am 5'7" and with the regular length my full foot would have been showing.

Very flattering and comfortable dress!
It does run short, i am 5'8 and the regular showed my feet. I don't like wearing high heels so it's okay but it was a tad short. Other than that, it is simple, elegant, and classy! I would love to have this in my wardrobe as it is so versatile.

Perfect for work formal Gala event
The fit of the dress throughout the body was absolutely perfect and the material was somewhat forgiving. Very comfortable. BUT, it does run very small. As you can see in the picture my feet were totally exposed. This was a 10R and I am only 5'3. Tons of compliments and overall great experience with RTR!

Classy but fun!
I rented this dress for a work gala dinner. The fit was flattering and the dress felt very comfortable. The fabric was a little heavy for an outdoor Florida event, but thankfully black doesn't show sweat! The bead detailing on the shoulder was nice from far away, but looked cheap up close. I actually would have liked it better without the little shoulder train. Overall I was happy with it.

This dress was amazing! It was perfect for the occasion and I got so many compliments!
The dress fit great! It definitely runs a little short like other reviews have said. I got the extra length and was still able to wear decent heels. You will need spanx or something underneath because the material hugs very tightly and will show lines. But it is super comfy and easy to move in. I got comments all night on how great it looked. The beading on my particular dress is starting to show some signs of wear, but you could only tell from very close up. The dress arrived on time so there were no stresses before the event. I loved everything about this experience!

This dress was a head turner at our junior/senior prom.
This was the first dress I ever ordered off of RTR, and I was a little nervous to rent my dress as well as to put it on, but when I did it was absolutely stunning. The dress fit just as it looked in the picture, the dress was not restricting in movement in any way, except that it is hard to get into a lifted truck. This dress made my night ten times better, and being able to return it and never having to deal with it made it even better. Only tip is the beading on the dress has a hint of blue for anyone who has to match a vest or tie with your date.

Great dress for a great evening.
The dress is really beautiful on and the drapey bit on the back is so elegant. This dress runs short! I am 5'2 and I needed the long to wear heels of any height. I ordered the 0L and the 2R. The 2R was more comfortable around the mid-section, but gaped open at the top (plus too short!). I went with the 0L and although I am pretty slim, I preferred to wear spanx to smooth everything out. I was super comfortable all night.

Good enough.
Get the long! Get the long! Get the long! At 5'2" this dress was still way too short! I wore flip flops to a gala! The seams along the sides are unflattering on the hips. What woman wants to add bulk to to her hips?! The bead work had flaws but only noticeable close up. Overall a nice dress but probably wouldn't order again.

The dress is beautiful and so so classy. It was a bit short, but I loved it.
I weight 128 lbs and I'm 5"9. I have a small bust and a thin waist. The dress was a bit short so I wore very short heels, but I loved it overall. This was not the original dress I ordered but a replacement. I had ordered a dress that fit too big. I called RTR the next morning with this dress in mind, and received in the next morning. I am amazed by their awesome customer service. The back has a beautiful detail that hangs from one shoulder to below the other arm. The jewels on the shoulder section are gold, silver, and blue(which was a surprise to me since I didn't notice that in the photo). Overall, it was very elegant and I loved it; for those of you, who were like me, that are nervous to rent a dress, do it--you won't regret it.

This dress runs a bit big, did not even have to unzip it to put it on. It was very comfortable but also looked like it was hugging your body in the right ways and like a well-made dress. I would definitely recommend it.

Beautiful
I had both the 6L and 8L rented. The 6 fit perfectly but was a little short (I am 5'7" and it hit right at my ankle when standing up). I tried the 8 and it wasn't any longer and too big at the bust so I wore the 6! I did wear heels and just didn't worry about the length. The beading is BEAUTIFUL and the flowy thing on the back was absolutely beautiful and it was my favorite part. Perfect.

Dissappointed
Pros: I really wanted to wear this dress and was excited to try it on when it arrived. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the beading on the shoulder has tones of blue in it. It was very lovely. The draping on the front and back of the dress was classy and comfortable. Cons: WAY TOO SHORT. I'm just about 5'5" and was assured by a stylist that the regular length would work perfectly for my height. Unfortunately when I put the dress on, it fell right above my ankles. It was laughably short, really. The zipper puckered at the side too, so there was no smooth silhouette. No matter how much I tried keeping the dress down, it refused to lay flat. I tried on the size 0 too, which lay better on the hips, but it was obviously even shorter and the arm hole was super tight. Bottom line: I didn't wear this dress. I suppose it would have worked in a long size.

This dress runs short
I am 5ft 6 in 125 lbs and this dress came to right above my ankle. If you are 5ft 5 or taller I would rent the long.
