Absolutely a stunner. If only it fit.

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is gorgeous. Beautiful. I fell into a depression when I began to zip it up and it stopped short of the my chest. :( Side zipper and absolutely no stretch. The size 4 was not available to order as backup size for my date. Depending on the dress I am a size 2 or 4. If you are borderline - definitely size up with this dress!

This dress helps give you all the right type of curves with the rucking directed towards your waist. The beautiful, bold green color makes it a show-stopper.

Might as well wear a potato sack

Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Ladies you might as well wear a potato sack if you are thinking about this dress. I don't have a perfect figure, but I do have great curves that usually look great in mermaid style dresses. Unfortunately, not this dress. My boobs (size 34C) looked flat, I tried stuffing my bra & still looked flat. The waist made my hourglass look like a cylinder, don't try to fix with a belt, it will only make the ruching look bad. The side profile was terrible. It made my but look flat & I could have worn this dress 5 months preggers because I had room for a bun in the oven in the front. Super disappointed. DON'T DO IT!! So many better options on RTR. Women with figures like me, please look at my other reviews, I have had plenty of winners through this site.

Stunning gown! Total head turner.

Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I am usually between a size 2 and 4 in dresses, I'm 5'5". Thus, I ordered a 2L and 4L. After a long conversation with my go-to girl we decided it was better for the dress to be a bit longer than a bit too short. At 5'5" I was in between the regular and the long, but I knew my heels would be 4" tall and I did not want to risk it. Boy am I glad I went with the long. It was the perfect length. Be warned, this dress does have a bit of a tail and that can get tricky at a big event with lots of dancing. However, I loved the tail and found it manageable. Now for the sizing. This dress does not stretch at all. The material is relatively comfortable, but I would have liked a bit of stretch. I found it stiff when sitting down. Plus, I am a curvy girl. My hips felt a bit tight in the dress, but I was able to walk and dance without a problem. Also, this dress will not work for someone who has a larger chest. I'm a 34B, and the dress fit perfectly. I think it would have been tight on my chest if I were bigger up top. All that said, this dress is AMAZING! It photographs beautifully and I felt like royalty in it. I received a ton of compliments. If you have a big event and want to stand out from the crowd this dress is a winner!

This dress in size 0 AND 2 did not fit on my hips. It was also about 6 inches too long (5'1 in 5 inch heels). I was bummed because the color is gorgeous.

Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was a beautiful color, and absolutely fit me perfectly except for the length. I am petite, and this dress fit like a glove! However, I am also short, so the dress was a bit too long. I probably could have fixed this with hem tape, but it came in too late for me to actually wear the event I ordered it for, so I just packed it back up and sent it on its return trip.

Spectacularly Beautiful--but you sacrifice comfort!

Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The good: this dress looked absolutely spectacular. I got many, many compliments. I felt gorgeous. The color is fantastic and rich, the style with the folds is very forgiving of loose bellies and jiggly parts. Amazingly, it doesn't give you the dreaded armpit muffin top, and I am very prone to that. It also feels extremely secure when it's on--there is none of the "ohmigod it's falling down" feeling you can get with strapless dresses, and I never once was tempted to pull it up (and I'm the type to be very fidgety and do that). Runs true to size, and trust the chart on the length--I am 5'8, wore a 6L and 4" heels and my toes peeped out a bit, which is just what the sizing suggested would happen. It's so beautiful, and the color makes you stand out in a sea of black dresses and you will feel like you're a movie star. The bad: It's a very uncomfortable dress. There is no give in the fabric and you are very constrained. I could not have danced in this dress--sure, I could walk in it, but not much more. Climbing stairs was a joke. When I dropped things I had to have my date pick them up off the floor because if I'd gone down to pick them up I am sure this dress would have split (I have a bigger than average backside, so women who are small-tushed and small-thighed might not have this problem). There is also a small train, and people kept stepping on it. In terms of fit, the bodice won't accommodate a large range of sizes. I am a small C cup and it worked. If I were an A or B, I would have needed padding (you can wear a strapless bra under it) and if I were larger than a D, I don't know how I would have fit into it. In fact, the backup size I ordered was extremely stretched out in the bodice, I suspect because someone tried to do this. In addition, the zipper was a very poorly manufactured zipper; we could barely close it in spite of having more than enough room.

Compliments will flow with this dress.

Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is a stunner. Loved it. I received many compliments on color and style at a charity ball I attended. The 2L was slightly long on me, even with heels. I found I needed to lift the front when walking. The top fit perfectly, but I am size 0 on the bottom, so the hips had some extra room. Even so, the rouching made the extra material unnoticeable and instead made by body shape appear a bit more curvy. After much debate, I wore only the gold teardrop earrings and a bracelet, no necklace. You don't need it. I loved wearing it and was sad when the evening ended.

I was told I looked "stunning"

Size worn: 10R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is great for big busts, curvy girls and tall girls. I am 5-9' and I usually wear an 8L, but wore a 10R in this dress. It's tight in the ribcage and bust, but didn't fall down at all when I zipped it up. While I do have curves, I am more straight than cinched at the waist, so the waist was tight on me. Because this is such a beautiful quality of fabric and gown, luckily the tight waist didn't cause a bulge, but just had the effect of cinching my waist in a bit. I looked great, but breathed a sigh of relief at the end of the night when I unzipped the dress! My husband loved, loved this dress on my and told me all night that I looked "stunning!" Need I say more :-)??

Nice fabric, gorgeous color, even the size up was a bit small

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small

Definitely size up if you have a larger chest. The fit in both sizes seemed a bit off even if it had fit in the chest. Like not tight enough everywhere else but wouldn't zip at the top. Super nice fabric, though and beautiful color. I think it may be good for straighter body types as shown on the model.

Amazingly beautiful dress! Totally standout color! Had numerous compliments all night!

Size worn: 0L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
Fit- extremely small up top. I am a 32AA cup and I barely could zip it. Luckily the zipper was heavy duty and my husband could squeeze me into it. :) I am very glad I went with the 0 though. It needs to be very tight or you'd probably look frumpy. The long is too long too. I used hem tape to take it up 2" and wore 6" heels. I am 5'6" But overall an absolutely gorgeous dress!

Beautiful color and very elegant

Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
The fit of this dress is okay. I ordered the 4L and 6L. I tried on the 6L, but it was a little too big. When I tried to put on the 4 (which is my normal street size), I got it zipped (finally), but it was VERY snug. My husband even caught my skin in the zipper trying to squeeze me into the dress. I did finally get it on, and the top half of the dress was very flattering, but the bottom half however isn't as form-fitting, and the rusching at the waist is sort of baggy and isn't very flattering around the stomach area. I ordered a long, because I'm 5' 6 1/2", and was wearing 3-4 inch heels, so I was around 5'9" to 5'10" tall, and it was still about 1-2 inches too long, and I kept tripping on it. The pros are that it is a beautiful color, and I love the mermaid silhouette of this dress with the slight train. I wish it would have worked for me, because I really wanted to wear it. It complimented my red hair, but I had to go with my back-up dress instead.

Didn't wear this for my event as it was sent to me as a backup chosen by a stylist. I was on the plane to my event when they tried to reach me and wasn't available so a stylist chose two back ups for me. This was gorgeous but seeing as I am 4 1/2 months pregnant it was not appropriate for my back up. Gorgeous but unable to wear it.

Beautiful, but unable to wear either size.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented an 8 and a 10 and could't wear either of them :-( The 8 was too snug around the chest area and gave the dreaded back cleavage, BUT the waist, hips and length were perfect! I was surprised since I am only a B cup. The 10 was too baggy and too long. Being between sizes really did't afford a good fit with either dress.

Pretty dress, but definitely a lot of fabric/space in the stomach area. Great if you want to hide a little bit, but also makes you feel a little heavier, as your body can get lost in the fabric. Color is beautiful. Length for tall girls in the Long is more than ample even with 3-4" heels.

I rented a 2 and 4 because other reviews said this ran big. Well the 4 was a bit snug in the hips and it was impossible to zip up from the waist on up. There was no give in the fabric. There was about a 5 inch gap to zip. I was sooooo sad it didn't fit. It is BEAUTIFUL. I called RTR and it wasn't available in any other size that would've fit. I ended up wearing the Celebrity Celebrity dress which was overnight e's toe.

Beautiful Green Dress!

Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Loved this dress, but could not wear it because it was too long. They did not have the 6R so I rented the 6L on reviews and the 8R. I am 5'4.5" and was wearing 4" heels in the picture wearing the 6L. The gold zipper down the side was a little odd - but really no one would have noticed. Rented this with the emerald necklace, also from RTR. Disapointed that I could not wear. I had also rented the 8R but it was slightly too big. I also purchased a strapless shaper from Target which actually worked perfect with the dress.

Unfortunately I didn't wear this dress. The seam that is sewn about 3/4 th way down on the dress was a bit odd. It almost felt as if the dress was meant to be short and as an afterthought, someone decided to make it long. For me, it was a bit uncomfortable and takes away from the overall beauty of the dress. Although the color was stunning, the seam was so deep until walking in the dress was a bit obtrusive. I don't see how dancing in the dress could be comfortable at least not for those of us with a few curves.

Dress runs true to size. I am 5'8" and I wore 4 inch heels and the length was perfect. Visible gold zipper pairs well with gold shoes and accessories. I went with long green earrings and gold bracelet, the dress is enough that a necklace isn't necessary. Even if it fits perfectly have someone help you zip this up so you don't grab your skin in the sharp teeth of the zipper!

This dress was gorgeous! It was worn to a black tie fundraiser and it was by and large the most admired gown of the evening, people on the street stopped me to tell me how beautiful it was and in a sea of black gowns, it was an elegant choice of color. The fit was perfect, holding in my tummy and accentuating the back. I would definitely recommend it for any black tie event!
