Great dress but runs very small!
The dress is pretty and very flattering but size up. The fabric is more lightweight than it looks in the photo and not stretchy at all. My back-up size 6 was still too tight and too short.

Classy and flattering
I loved this dress! It was beautiful, classy, and super flattering. I am 120 lbs and 5'2 and the length worked with 2 inch heels. Originally I ordered a 0 and 2 petite and ended up having to get a 4 over nighted to me, but RTRW took care of it with no problems!

went with a different dress
This dress was tight around my thighs, probably should have went with an 8L. The material feels thicker than I was expecting. I'm 5'7 so I don't think a regular length will work for me. I picked this for a wedding but since I have the unlimited membership I'm going to go with another style.

I got a ton of compliments and felt very comfortable at a black tie wedding!
I got a ton of compliments and it was very comfortable (for a formal dress.) I wore 3 inch heels and I am 5' 6" which made it the perfect length. I was able to put it on with a bra (34B) or sticky boobs. For those who are comfortable, it seems like you could go braless if you wanted. Easy to put on/walk/sit in! I definitely recommend it for a formal event.

Very classy!
The dress was beautiful and classy. It was form-fitting, and I wore spanx to hide my excess belly "fluff". Easy to wear with a normal bra. My con with this dress is that it RUNS SHORT. I sized up to a 12 because it was slightly longer than the 10, however my shoes were still very visible. I am 5'6 and planned to wear heels, but I had to wear flats because it ran so short. I would say order the long if you are taller than 5'3!

Loved this for a formal business event. Maintained professionalism while still showing off curves.
The petite was shorter than expected. I'm 5'2" and could only wear 2 inch heels without it being too short.

Hugs your curves in all the right places!
The dress I originally wanted to wear didn't fit so I had this dress overnighted and I'm so glad I did!! The dress itself is simple and classy and the peplum adds a little flare. The fabric and fit of the dress was so comfortable! I wore the 8P and it fit like a glove. A little tight on my belly, might've ordered a 10P and seen how that fit but thought the 8P was great! Length was perfect. I'm 5'2" 140 lbs and I wore about 3 inch heels and the dress just about went to the floor. I don't have a large chest so having it fitted up top was nice so it showed off the little bit I do have! And having it fitted around my backside helped to show off my curves too! The peplum at the waist was very flattering. Loved the way the fabric falls at bottom of the dress. Easy and fun to dance in! I would definitely rent this dress again!

Great dress for formal work event
I am 5'2", 105 lbs, 34B. I normally wear a 0 in dresses but got the 2P as a backup just in case. The 0 fit my narrow hips beautifully, but I just could not get the top to zip- even without a bra. The 2P fit nicely in the top, but the rest of the dress just hung off of me and ended up being too short. Luckily my roommate was able to literally squeeze me into the 0 and it looked beautiful - just had to hold my breath all night. The dress is beautiful, heavy and well made.

A magnet for compliments!
Channel old Hollywood glamour! While wearing this evening gown to a temperature-toasty black tie summer wedding, I heard an ongoing stream of compliments from every walk of life--young and old, men and women, guests and non-guests. A friend who knew this was my first RTR experience is still trying to convince me to purchase this stunning number to add to my permanent wardrobe. No question that this dress tamed my problem areas--a pear shape plus a tummy earned from having two children. What amazed me was how this dress made my lower half an asset rather than a liability. While I agree with other reviewers that the fabric is high quality, I benefited from donning shape wear to keep my curves in check. I fell madly in love with this dress for a few reasons: a) it made me appear more statuesque than my true 5'2" (slipping on a pair of platform stilettos gave me the perfect lift), b) I was able to wear a regular bra without a sign of straps, and c) the solid column of color and the style's nips and tucks gave me the appearance of being long and lean. The only drawback for me was taking stairs or attempting more of a stride--the cut limits movements. However, I was able to hit the dance floor unencumbered. As other reviewers have suggested, for the backup size, order up. To sum up this selection, if you're a curvy lower-half lass like me, this dress will be your new best friend.

Perfect for formal wedding!
This dress fit like a glove! I wore it for a black tie wedding in Manhattan. The fabric had some give which made it comfortable for dancing. I had to wear the 12 to accommodate for my bust but I could wear a regular bra, but I did have to pin the back strap to the dress to keep it from showing. I would definitely recommend this dress!

Great fit and fabric, tear in front
Love the style, it is very flattering and the fabric is forgiving and high quality. I love the peplum detail and got so many compliments on it. Unfortunately the 6 had a tear in the seam right in the front. The other size didn't fit so I wore it anyway, luckily it was hidden by the peplum skirt mostly. A little upset by the condition of the garment, especially for the cost.

Beautiful dress perfect for a formal occasion!
I'm so glad I listened to reviews that said to order a size up. I went with the 6R which was still a little tight around the midsection because the straps were a little loose and the 8R wouldn't have fit right with the straps at all. Great length. I got lots of compliments on it.

Comfortable, fun dress-- perfect for black tie events!
I wore this to a black tie event and it was incredibly comfortable and I got tons of compliments! The material helps hold you in especially in the stomach area (so you can go for seconds on dessert!) I liked the regular length since I wanted my shoes to show out the front of the dress but I think the long would have worked too. Definitely somewhat different than the classic floor length black gown since the navy and peplum add a lot of interest to the dress. I would absolutely rent this again!

Hugs curves beautifully!
It was the perfect dress for a black tie wedding! It ran a little small so I was glad that I ordered a size up in addition to the size I thought I would wear. It's definitely not a good dress if you're planning on drinking a lot (it's tricky to get on and off for the bathroom). I loved the dress and it was otherwise super comfy!

Flattering but short
This dress fit just as slimming and flattering as the other reviews said. I felt very comfortable and elegant in this dress and received many compliments. However, my 4L definitely was not long. It was too short even in bare feet so I'm wondering if it was just a mistake. When I tried the 2L on, it was definitely longer than the 4, but was too tight to zip. I went with the 4L and it worked out fine anyway. I'd rent this again but would make sure to get the 6L so it would fit better length wise!

This dress came to my rescue when the first one did not fit.
I would have preferred the material to be a bit more stretchy. I'm curvy with a big bottom so it was tight at the butt and thighs. It overall got the job done. It was a perfect length for me at 5'5 with 3/4 inch heels.

I absolutely loved this dress! I wore it to a black tie wedding. I received so many compliments on the dress all night. I'm definitely curvy in my bottom half and this dress complimented those curves so well! It fit like a glove...no spanx needed! Definitely recommend ordering this dress. I didn't want to send it back!

Wore the other dress I rented but this one was beautiful too!
I am a DD and wear a size 8 but they didn't have an 8L or 10L, so I decided to go with the 12L because of my bust. The dress fit but it was roomy in the hips area; however, the bust fit nicely, so if you're a busty girl this may not be the dress for you. It's a gorgeous navy; however, it is a very heavy material and thus not ideal for Spring or Summer events. Perfect for Fall or Winter though and such a classic cut and style.

Compliments all night
The dress fit me beautifully. I'm 5'2'', and the 2P was the appropriate height with heels. I ordered 0P as well, and it was much too small. So glad that I had the 2P. So many women told me that the dress was gorgeous throughout the night.

Stylist pick
This was added onto my order because one of the dresses I chose was unavailable. I almost told them to leave it out because I thought it would look terrible on me, but believe the other reviews - it is so flattering and made me feel so good. Very snug, but in a good way. My behind looked huge, but I considered wearing this anyway because I felt great in it. It was a smidge too short though, and I felt like I would have been pulling it down all night. I'm 5'6 and a half, and this is one size up and the long. So if you're tall it might be an issue!

See drama on the fit below, but overall the dress ended up being absolutely stunning.
For dresses, I normally wear a true 8, but read the reviews and ordered the 10 as well just to be safe. Also from reading the reviews, I determined that with my height and heels, the regular size would do just fine - WRONG! I desperately needed the Long size, but tried it on too late to call RTR to try and get a solution. Like I said above, overall the dress was absolutely stunning, however, if there was a flood coming, I was the first one prepared.

For me, this dress ran on the smaller side, so I was glad that the other reviewers recommended ordering the next size up. I found the 4P to be tight around the hips, but the 6P fit perfectly for dancing the night away! The length of the dress was perfect with heels.

The fabric was thick enough to be form flattering but thin enough for a hot Texas night.
Wore this for a military ball this spring. The only con was that I should have ordered a 2L since the 2R fit perfectly but was too short to wear with heels. I ended up wearing the 4R for the length with flats since it was still to short for even 3 inch heels.

Gorgeous for formal benefit
Dress fits like a dream. Peplum hits at a great place as to cover up the lower tummy/ food baby area (because I have priorities). Flares out at the bottom to give you an AMAZING figure-- I am stick straight up and down and it looked like I had some great curves!! I wore to a 5pm black tie gala, and dressed it down by using a low pony. Runs a little SHORT-- If you're tall and wearing anything above a 2in heel, get the tall size. I am obsessed with this dress, but will definitely get a Long next time.

I ordered this dress in a size too small, but ended up wearing this same dress in red. It is stunning! It is great for a girl with curves who wants to look sexy but doesn't want to show off too much skin.

This dress was beautiful!
The dress fits true to size but it was SUPER LONG on me. I followed the suggestions on the site before choosing my size but it still didn't fit right lengthwise. A 0P would have been perfect but I just ended up buying hem tape and fixing it as best as I could. My recommendation is that if you don't plan on wearing huge heels then you may want to older a length shorter than normal. Other than that, it was perfect and I would definitely recommend it to all my friends!
