The unique chest design
So many compliments! It was super flattering and comfortable. Only con: the slip underneath was a tad tight on me. Otherwise the dress was perfect!

Great dress that moves well.
The flowy material worked well at the outdoor portion of the evening. The top adds just enough detail while still being generally understated (my goal for the wedding of my SO's relative). After reading other reviews, I bought fabric tape to keep everything where I wanted it in the bust area, which worked perfectly.

Beautiful gown!
Love love love this dress! Definitely needed some fashion tape to secure the front. Also think the short would have worked better despite being 5'4". The overall length wasn't the problem (because I wore heels) but more so I think the back would have laid better if I had the 8 short rather than regular.

Loved the Dress!
I wish I would have ordered the 8P. It was a little long on me even with heels- but I'm not tall! It was perfect for the black tie wedding we attended. I would say if you are larger chested- lingerie/fabric tape will be a must!

Very LONG!
The dress fit nicely. If I had worn it I would definitely have needed fashion tape to hold the front from falling open. It also gapped a little in the back unless I stood perfectly straight. It is VERY long - I wore 4 inch heels in the photo and it dragged on the floor. I ended up not wearing it to the function because it was outside, it had rained, and the hem would have soaked up so much water from the grass!

Beautiful gown for a black tie optional wedding
I normally wear a size 6 or 8 dress. Luckily I chose the size 10 as my back up size because the 8 was SO tight around my ribcage. The size 10 was a little snug but I was comfortable sitting and dancing in it. Both dresses were very long on me. With 4 inch heels it wasn't too bad, but once I took my heels off to dance I had to hold the dress up the whole night. I had to tape the gap in the front of the dress together and also had to tape the dress to my chest to keep it in place. Other than those issues, I absolutely loved this dress. The open back was gorgeous and I got so many compliments. It was fancy but not over the top.

I got a lot of compliments, this dress was a beautiful fit, I have a small waist and my hips are wide in comparison, this sat perfectly and flattered. I felt very comfortable in the dress, not too hot. The only thing I had not considered was the bra situation, I ended up getting a last minute stick on bra, I wish I had planned that better.

Lovely Summer Wedding
I had actually ordered another dress and RTR informed me one of the sizes I had ordered would not longer be available for the dates I needed and so I had ordered this dress as a backup. Once I tried on my original dress and saw it was a bit too long for me I tried on this dress and it seemed perfect! Throughout the night my only issue was when I had to ascend stairs because the slip kept getting underneath my feet. But the dress fit wonderfully and I got many compliments.

Perfect dress for black tie!
First of all, this was my backup dress in a backup size, and RTR was fabulous about the whole transaction. My original dress came in only one of my original sizes as the other size had been damaged. I asked for the backup in a different size than the ones I originally ordered, because this dress's reviews said the dress fit a little differently. I'm so glad! I got the 10L and it fit like it was made for me. I needed the long (5'8" over here) because I wore 3" heels and it just brushed the ground. I got tons of compliments, and I felt formal enough at the black tie event. Great dress!

Flowy Fabric and Design - Perfect Formal or Semi Formal Choice
Gorgeous navy. Flows with specific attention to layered, lightweight fabric. When you move, it surrounds you in gorgeous. Cut is flattering but front top opening may require your attention. It can be easily pulled closed with a spot of fabric tape - it is loose so it won't pull back open. I didn't have any - no fashion faux paux here. It can be year round. Stop paging and pick this one. I got compliments all night.

Classic and Formal
This was my backup option for a black tie wedding. The style, color, and fit made for an elegant look. This is a more understated dress than I typically go for. Not a show stopper but beautiful. At 5'8 I didn't really need a long but with 4 inch heels it didn't drag on the ground. BIG plus with this dress is there is room to indulge in a few extra desserts and it doesn't show!

..
I wore this to a wedding. I was 17-weeks pregnant at the time I wore this and it did fit tightly under my bust, but the size 8 was far too big. This dress does show a significant amount of cleavage that I am personally not used to showing, but it looked elegant overall.

This dress is gorgeous and so comfortable! I loved how it flowed and felt so elegant.
Wore to a formal wedding, and it was perfect. The top was a bit loose (but fit perfectly around waist) so I used fashion tape to hold it in place a bit. Also wore a backless/ strapless bra since I'm a D cup and it was a bit revealing without it. It went perfectly to the floor for me and I'm 5'6" without heels, so I wore dressy sandals with it. Loved the detail of the fabric and how light the dress felt.

Beautiful Nashville wedding with old friends.
The dress was originally chosen as my backup dress. This dress was beautiful, light weight and flattering. The neckline was unique and added interest. The built in slip was a little snug in the hips and had a tendency to ride up, especially with dancing. The outer fabric fit perfectly and I think the next size up would have looked too big.

Beautiful gown for a bridesmaid.
I loved this dress and thought the cut was very flattering. The material is somewhat lightweight so it was fine for a June wedding. I typically wear a size 4 in dresses, but I found that the hip area was quite snug so I went with a size 6 as my backup and ended up wearing that. If you have wide hips, I would definitely recommend sizing up. For the chest area, I ended up using a little bit of fashion tape to keep everything in place. Lengthwise, I am 5'5" and found the 6R length to be fine with a small heel. I would definitely recommend this dress!

I wasn't able to wear this (received as a replacement style) to the wedding.
So much boob hanging out on this one! Deeeep V in the front. I found that this dress fit me perfectly if I took up the straps by like two inches - too much for it to be feasible to do a little tuck and safety pin. I would have also needed a pin at the bust to keep it decent. Again, it might work better for someone taller than I am, or perhaps just differently-proportioned. But for me, it would have just taken too much modification (and a second person to help with the back hooks!)

Wedding officiant for late spring outdoor event
Beautiful, elegant, and comfortable. A little long in the front even with 2" heels. A little snug in the hips (my hips are a little wide) but not uncomfortable. Wore a sticky bra and fabric tape to hide it, and it worked like a charm. Got lots of compliments!

Flowy and classy - would rent again!
This was the perfect dress for an outdoor California black tie wedding! I was looking for something special with interest but comfortable so I could dance all night and this dress checked all of those boxes. The material was flowy and flattering while the back showed some skin which I loved! I have broad shoulders so was worried the top of the dress would be tight but it fit nicely and did not make me feel constricted at all. The hook&eye on the top of the back of the dress came undone a few times throughout the night but it didn't bother me too much. I definitely recommend using fashion tape in the front as the material is loose.

great dress for black tie wedding
Rented this for a black tie wedding and it was great for the most part. Only complaint was the hook to close the zipper was missing, so I noticed that the dress didn't look fully zipped but my friends said it was fine. I alerted RTR to this so hopefully they'll fix for the next wearer. Other than that the dress fit great, it's flowy but the underskirt is tighter and also forgiving. No matter what boob size you are, get fashion tape for this dress. I read previous reviews and it was definitely needed. I decided to use a strapless, backless bra and it worked fine but had to tape the front to cover some of the bra and so too much cleavage wouldn't show. I'm short and wore an 8R so my 3 inch heels worked, but the dress did snag a couple times.

Great formal dress!
Dress worked great for a formal gala. Loved having something a little different -- in navy blue and with the cleavage cut out :) I used tape on the boobs and wore ~3 inch heels (I'm 5'5").

Got so many compliments in this dress. Gorgeous back and interesting neckline.
This fit me snugly in the waist even though I usually wear a 6/8. Since I had to size up, it was a bit too big in the bust. Double sided tape would have saved me here.

She's light, flowy, and incredibly sexy while still being modest. The very full skirt will make you want to twirl all night. I didn't want to sent it back.

I wore this to a formal fundraising event.
Beautiful dress, comfortable but I think I would have preferred the size 6L. I also tried on the 10R which was too short. I did have to buy a special stick on backless bra for the dress so for that reason I wouldn't wear this dress. Overall RTR was a great experience.

LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS DRESS!!
This is one of my favorite designers. Her dresses all fit the same and true to size. I could have worn the 6 but was a little snug in the hips so I went with the 8 so I could dance the night away. I love how it is snug and highlights my small waist and then flows out from there. Received so many compliments. This was actually a backup dress as my dress was not available and I ended up loving it even more. The RTR customer service was fantastic to get me a replacement dress quickly. I am 148 lbs and 5'4' - size 34b for reference.

Beautiful flow to this one!
The dress fit beautifully and has a nice flow when you walk. I got lots of compliments and loved wearing this piece. If your on the bigger bra size- you def need a bra. Thankfully i have a good low back one that worked well. It makes quite the statement of its own- so other than some earrings and bracelet not much more is needed. Def a winner!

Beautiful navy blue, effortlessly classy, must rent gown.
This dress was my backup selection, at first I was upset but after trying it on and wearing it I'm so thankful this dress was sent. The picture on RTR doesn't do this dress justice. It is truly a beautiful dress. The navy color is gorgeous. When you walk the dress flows with every step, it almost feels magical. The deep v in the front wasn't an issue at all, I used fashion tape and it stayed perfectly. The dress is fully lined, with no need for a bra. The length was perfect with 3 inch shoes. I highly recommend this dress, I was sad to zip the bag and send it back.

This dress was sexy yet classy!
The fit was perfect! The material and the way the dress fits makes if very forgiving. I loved the key hole in front but definitely have some fashion tape on hand to keep the fabric in place. I wore one of those strapless/backless sticky bras with the dress and it worked out great.

This was sent to me as a back up dress in the 6R. It was a BEAUTIFUL gown. Unfortunately, It was really tight around my rib cage and I was unable to wear it. I think an 8R may have been too big.

I absolutely love love loved this dress!
This dress was very flattering on my body type. I have a small chest, wide rib cage, big hips and a butt. This dress made me look very slim and actually accentuated my chest in a really good way! The back is absolutely beautiful too. I wish I would have gotten some pictures but its open. I wore my hair up to show off the front neck line and the back. I got a ton of complements at the party I was at. I would definitely recommend this dress to anyone who needs something classy with a little skin showing!

Very comfortable dress for a formal event.
This dress was very comfortable. Although, I had to end up taping the dress in the front because when you sit down, it kind of flys open since the material is so loose/free flowing. Also, it was vey long in the back which was great but I had to hold it the whole time we were dancing so it might be better for an event without a lot of close contact with others.

Compliments kept flowing!
Fit was a little small--normally I wear 10, but the 12 fit like a glove. However, the bust area was a little large despite my 36C size (nothing a little fashion tape couldn't handle, though). I work this dress to a black-tie dinner for special donors at my law school--this dress fit the bill (conservative, but fun). I loved the flowing skirt an unique neck line and received so many compliments about the flattering dress. Would 100% rent again for a similar occasion.

This dress was absolutely gorgeous! I got so many compliments on it.
I loved this dress! It hit in all the right places and the open back was my favorite part. The slip underneath was just tad tight on my butt and upper thighs so I had slightly limited movement but other than that it was a great dress.
