Incredible fit and color!
I'm a smidge over 5'7" and the long was pushing it with 3" heels. The material has a little give, not stretchy by any means, but molded to my body and got more comfortable as the evening went on. Spanx would be tough with this dress since the back (which is incredible!) is see through. Make sure you have sticky boobs since the back is such a key feature and you don't want a bra taking away from this beauty. Got so many compliments and of all my rentals, this one photographed the best! It was a knockout for a formal wedding!

Got lots of compliments. The back and high slit legs make the dress!
I am 5'4", 135 lbs and typically wear a 4 and had to go with the 6 which fit like a glove. Opted to go braless rather than wear the Nubra I ordered because the dress was cut lower than the bra. The lace back detail is stunning though watch for little frayed threads. My first time renting and it was a great experience!

This is a gorgeous dress!
Form fitting and a great dress to wear to a black tie wedding. I received a ton of complements. The color was a bright navy - very pretty and different from the majority of black dresses. I'm short - 5'2 (with a full bust) so I opted for the 6P and the length was perfect. I wore 3 inch heals and it didn't drag at all. Rent this - you won't be disappointed!

I really liked the color of the dress. I couldn't manage to get a picture to do it justice. I really needed the long since it was a bit shorter than I would have liked, but it was not available. I did get a lot of compliments on it.

I loved this dress. So classy and unique. The only one like it at my event!
I'm 5'2". The 4R was a little snug around the hips and definitely too long. The 6P was a perfect fit. The flared legs were very sexy but modest enough to still sit down comfortably. Absolutely loved it!

Beautiful dress for a black tie wedding!!
Absolutely love this dress!! It fit great, super comfortable and was easy to dance in all night!! The lace back has a layer of nude fabric underneath so it can be work with or without a bra.

classic, sexy, comfortable
i really loved this dress! first of all it's actually really comfortable! i could have worn this dress all day long and had no problems. i rented both the 8L and 10L, and ended up wearing the 10L. it just gave me a little extra room in the waist and bust. i wore it to a black tie wedding in December and it was perfect! i was not too cold, the fabric is a crepe and it's kind of thick and provides some warmth. the cap sleeves and back are lace but they are lined with a nude sheer fabric so there's a little extra modesty. it was tight enough in the bust for me that i didn't have to wear a bra, which i really liked since the back is sheer. i'm 5'10" and i wore 3" heels and the length was perfect. and the slits were not too high at all, they were the perfect cut on my legs. they came up to my mid thigh. the color is BEAUTIFUL. it's hard to describe because it really changes depending on the lighting. in daylight it looks more midnight blue but in a photo with a flash it looks royal blue. but either way it's really stunning. an added bonus is that this dress spins really great! it really flares out and makes dancing that much more fun. i received so many compliments and i felt amazing! i would definitely rent this dress again.

Ended up not wearing it because the bust felt a little loose and I didn't like the shoulders.
The dress looks gorgeous in the photo, but the lace looks really cheap. My biggest problem is that no matter what I tried, the lace didn't actually look like cap sleeves, but looked more like straps, and I am skinny. The bust also felt a little lose. Waist down, the dress was fine...the top just didn't work for me.

This dress is a standout to the typical black dresses that most tend to wear at formal events
I am 5'7 and wore 4 inch heals and the long worked perfectly. The material is think enough that you don't need spanks or to worry that the fit will show too much. This dress is great for an athletic type of body like mine. My friends kept saying I should buy this dress because it fit my figure so nicely.

Fit perfectly!!
Absolutely beautiful. I ordered the 10R and the 8R. The 10 fit great. I am super hippy - like very pear shaped- 8/10 in jeans!! I was a little concerned that the dress was going to be too loose in the top and tight in the bottom, but it fit great. If I had pasties I probably would have worn then since it was a cold night but the dress is lined so it wasn't bad. Would highly recommend this dress!! I wore 3 inch heals and it just barely skimmed the floor. All in all, great fit.

I LOVED this dress so much! It was true to size, I'm between a 0-2 and it almost was too tight. So if you're truly a 2 then get a 2 because it really doesn't give.

Stunning Dress!
I rented this dress for a formal work function and it was absolutely beautiful! I rented one size larger than I typically wear after reading several reviews and I'm glad I did as the size larger fit really well. The dress was very comfortable and the sleeves stayed up fine without any fabric tape. I would absolutely rent this dress again!

Beautiful and very flattering! I received several complements from random people passing on the street (men and women). Brighter blue color than pictured on the model, but that makes it even more stunning. With 5" heels, length was fine. (I am only 5'0''

I received so many compliments on the dress! It was just perfect for my husband's Holiday party.
The fit was perfect. It is a little tight around the breast area, however. I am 5'3" and it was a little long, so I would get taller heels if you are short like me. Other than that the dress was perfect. The slit was not too high and showed just the right amount of leg. It is also super easy to move and dance in, plus I was able to eat my food with out the dress suddenly getting tighter! I would definitely recommend it for any formal occasion!

Wore it for Junior League holiday formal event. Felt very elegant, but sexy too!
I am 5'0", so I ordered the petite as it is recommended for those who are too short for the regular (Regular measures 58'' from shoulder to hem recommended for heights 5'2''-5'6''). I tried it on with three inch heels and it was still TOO LONG! Why do designers fail to make petite dresses....petite!? That was my biggest frustration with this dress as I had to hem it myself. Curvy girls, definitely size up. I ended wearing the 6P because the 4P was too fitted in the hips and bust. Once you find the perfect size, the stretchy fabric does make your curves look fabulous!

Perfect for a black tie wedding
I wore this to my boyfriend's brothers black tie wedding. It was beautiful and I got tons of complements! However, for a pear shaped lady like myself, the bottom was quite fitted and the top was a little lose. I was unable to wear a bra with it because of the sheer back, but it ended up being fine to dance in. Spanx were low enough that they couldn't be seen through the transparent back. Love this dress and would recommend it to anyone!

Beautiful and comfortable dress! Win-win!
Very comfortable fabric and fit. I wanted to show the dress from the front and back. Also, wanted to share the color of the dress both indoor and outdoor. Beautiful color! Loved both slits in the front of the dress. Love the lace and the details in the back side. I would definitely recommend this dress. I am not very comfortable with my body shape/size right now so this was definitely a great dress that helped give me confidence. You know how it goes...be comfortable and confident in what you wear and it will show. Enjoy the dress!

Fit nicely in all areas!
This dress fit well, giving me room in the stomach area. I did wear a bra with it, a backless one that had adhesives on the side. The slits may be a bit high for some people, but I felt it still looked classy enough for a formal event. I got lots of compliments, including another female who told me my butt looked great in it! Would definitely recommend it. It was comfortable too!

I was the MC for our Marine Corps Ball, this dress made me feel so glamorous! It was perfect!
I'm curvy and athletic so not every dress fits the same. I wear anything from a 0-6 it just depends on cut, and I also wear 34DD. This dress was true to size and just brushed the floor with 3 in heals. I felt beautiful and the color is an amazing royal blue. The slits up the front are SO sexy and show just enough leg- I danced and presented at the ball and felt totally covered and comfortable. Tons of compliments. I can't wait to have another event so that I can order again!

Wore this to my cousin's black tie optional wedding.
The dress fit great. The slits on both sides added just the right amount of sex appeal. I actually went to the RTR shop and tried on a few dresses. This was automatically my favorite. I am a bit tall so the dress was a bit short. I should have ordered the long length but I made it work with lower heels.

The dress made me feel sexy and beautiful! I got compliments all night!
I was hesitant about the size, since I have a baby bump. This is my second child, thus I'm showing early. I used my extra dress. It's just one size up from my regular size 6. It had just enough stretch to fit perfectly and showcase my belly. My earrings and bracelet were from RTR as well! They went perfectly with the dress! Everything was great! Thanks RTR

Such a beautiful gown in a gorgeous color, but it was very long and I am very short. I had to wear tall heels and it still dragged on the ground.

LOVED this dress! the color and style was so flattering = )
The color of this dress on the RTR model looks navy but in person it is a little more of a royal blue and in pictures it can look almost purple, regardless the color is beautiful and very flattering. The fit was very good however I think the 2R would have fit perfect so if you have a similar body type and the 2R is available go for it. I also definitely recommend investing in a pair of cutlets for this dress as you might need a little extra support.

Felt gorgeous in this dress! A definite showstopper!
The Fit: the bust runs small on this dress, I am a 34B and the bust was quite tight so that is why I had to go with the larger backup size I ordered (6R) instead of the 4R I normally wear. The Length: the length ran long, I ordered the regular length because I am 5'6 and I planned to wear 2-3" heels. But the length was longer than I expected so I wore my higher 4" heels instead and then the length was perfect. Pros: Beautiful dress, fit great, absolutely loved the dual slits, very sexy, a showstopping dress, felt very expensive, and my boyfriend loved it. Arrived on Friday afternoon around 3pm at my doorstep, I wore it to my event on Saturday, and I returned it on Monday at 9:30am - easy delivery and return. Cons: I showed up to the wedding and another girl was wearing the SAME DRESS. Absolutely horrifying! I had to avoid her the entire night. Additionally, I saw another girl wearing a dress that I had also considered from RTR. I think RTR definitely needs to implement a field to input the location of the occasion you're wearing the dress for that way RTR can tell you if it's already been rented for that same date/location.

Perfect for a Formal outdoor wedding
I attended a wedding that was black tie optional but outdoors, so wanted something formal but not too stuffy. This dress was perfect. The lace back was gorgeous. I really needed a 4L but it wasn't available, and the 6L ended up working totally fine (I feel like longer dresses you can get away with being a little too big, just because of how they drape). The fabric is thicker than I anticipated, but not hot. No bra needed, just wore silicone sticky petals. I need to find an excuse to rent this one again!!

Great simple dress with a little extra flair
It's very flattering and the back details give it a little extra flair. The dress is also very comfortable and easy to move around in. My only complaints are that the backs of my heels kept getting caught in the hem of the back of the dress and when I sat the dress was rather short because of the two slits in the front.

Beautiful dress!! Only thing is I highly recommend going with a petite size of you are around 5 feet. There was not a petite size available in my size. It fit great and slimmed my body while hugging my curves! The back is my favorite part! So pretty! #wedding

Wore the dress to the Marine Ball 2014 and I was in LOVE with the dress!
The long was a good length; I'm 5'8" flat foot, so with heels on it just barely swept the floor. The chest was a SQUEEZE. I thought my ladies might pop out. The rest of the dress fit like a glove. I loved the lace detail on the back to make it elegant, and the double slits on the front made it sexy. All night at the ball, I received compliments on the dress. For the after party we went to a large, local bar so we were mixed in with people in their normal jeans and ts. I must've been stopped at least twenty times to have girls comment on the gorgeousness of the dress.

a little tight on the rib cage area but still a great fit. the slits were perfect length.
