beautiful fabric & great color
The dress was beautiful, but was too tight on my rib cage (which is actually pretty small for my size/height). I had to wear the other dress I rented as a back-up.

Really beautiful dress
I thought my boobs looked enormous in this dress, and for a lot of people that would be great, but I'm a little self-conscious about mine. I would recommend this dress for pear-shaped figures...smaller on top, and fuller hips.

I felt like a goddess!
I was far too short for this dress (I had to hold-up the train), but it looked stunning! The material flows out around you when you walk!

Dramatic
This fit exactly as I expected and it was very dramatic and gorgeous. But, the side of the dress was very exposing on my chest and I ended up wearing my backup instead.

My husband and I were the event photographer's favorite subjects!
We attended a Masquerade Ball on New Year's Eve. I happened to have the same Venetian mask as another lady at our table (gasp!), but even she had to admit that my dress made my ensemble look better than hers :). This dress is absolutely stunning! It does run a full size small so size up. It is also a rather long dress, so if you're my height (5'7''), and border on the line of being considered tall/short, get the regular. I wore about 4.5inch heels and the dress barely skimmed the floor in a regular.

Stunning dress! Pictures don't do it justice!
This dress is beautiful. It is a gorgeous grape color, soft and flowy, sexy and pretty. I wore it for our annual Christmas Ball and it was a hit! It runs long though so even with 3 inch heels, I had to hold it up. I highly recommend this dress!

Very comfortable and elegant.
This dress is a beautfiul purple. Super comfortable. You don't really need a bra, but the Nu-bra made me feel less self conscious. I'm 5'6" and the regular length was fine with 2" heels. There were a few wrinkles in the skirt that didn't fall out as well as I would have liked, but overall not notiiceable.

A classy elegant dress... but not for the full busted.
I knew I was in trouble when I saw that backless back, but I decided to try it. I ended up not wearing this gown but it was a difficult choice. What I can tell others: This gown is long. I am 5'4 and put on 6" heels & it still dragged the ground like it needs to be hemmed. Tripped on the ends just walking around my apartment. If you are full busted (I am a 32FF) you need a low back bustier; which unless you already own one it is difficult to find before an event. I am not sure why this gown showed up for full busted women--unless you have a bustier. You will need fashion tape--to tape the sides by the arms so that it doesn't pucker between your full bust and your arms. This dress made me nervous--it is all silk & chiffon. Wear it to a non dancing, sitting/standing around looking pretty event. I was going to wear it to a ball with 2 dance rooms & open bars--I had a drink spilled on me twice that night--I'm glad I didn't wear this dress. The pros? It's extremely classy & elegant. You will feel like a socialite in it. It's light & flowing and just makes you feel like a princess. I hope I can rent it again--once I receive my bustier.

I was so happy I chose this dress! I got a ton of complements & really felt beautiful!
I waited til the last minute to rent so I was unable to get two sizes. I was forced to get the 0, but it ended up working out, thank god!! The dress is a really pretty purple. I went to a evening wedding and it was gorgeous in the sun. It is really flowy and soo comfortable. The only thing that was annoying was the length, I kept having to hold up the train. I really liked this dress because it was really classy but not over the top. Overall, I had an amazing experience with RTR and I will definitely rent from them again. Thanks RTR for your amazing customer service!

Did not end up wearing this choice but amazing dress!
I ended up not wearing this dress option but I tried it on in the showroom and wow! It was a hard choice between this and another option but this is a must try! This dress has a lot of its own movement and the silk falls beautifully.However, I would be sure to measure your bust correctly for this dress the silk does not have any give and fit just perfectly If I had the wrong size it would have been too small.

The dress fit perfect and was very comfortable to wear. My only word of warning is that it does run long!

Gorgeous Dress
I absolutely adored this dress! I'd definitely say it fits true to size - I ordered an 8 because the 6 wasn't available for my rental period, so it was a little big, but I expected that. Although the dress looks blue in pictures, it really is a stunning violet in person. It's really comfortable too, nice and light. The one con I would say is the skirt - it was the perfect length, but the material got caught on stuff easily. It didn't tear or anything, but I would be wary of that. Other than that, it was perfect! I got so many compliments all night!
EmilyNovember 14, 2012
Hi, I am 5'9" as well, and wonder what size heel you wore to get "the perfect length"? I'm a little hesitent about this dress because it does say fits to 5'6" and no long is available.
Ann ElizabethNovember 29, 2012
I'm so sorry that this response is so late, but I wore a 2.5-3'' heel! It made it so the dress didn't completely reach the floor, which made it easier to walk in.

Unfortunately, I didn't get to wear this great dress.
The size 4 fit me in the waist but was too large on top and was too long with 4.5 inch heels. The size 2 was too small.
