The dress was perfect for this elegant wedding.
Fit was great, a little tight in my thigh area than I wanted. The peplum does not go all the way around so don't be fooled. The front of your tummy is not covered by the peplum, they are more like flaps. Got a lot of compliments!

I received so many compliments on this dress from complete strangers! I rented both the 12R and the 12L and the 12L worked best for me. I am 5'5" and the 12R came down to my feet when I was barefoot. I love to wear heels so the 12L worked best for me! The dress was a little tight, but the material did have some give in it! Loved this dress!

Beautiful, structured, and fitted gown!
Pros: This dress is beautifully fitted and looks great on petit body types. The peplum hides any "food baby" you might have after dinner Fabric really holds everything in It is actually, truly a petit fit. Normally petits still don't fit my torso but this was a little snug. Cons: Because the fabric doesn't have much give the dress fits tight The skirt is cut shorter in the front than in the back and is actually a petit fit. My shoes were visible when walking. Overall a beautiful dress.

Great fit and color!
I was given many compliments while wearing this dress at my brother's wedding. Since I was also the photographer I needed something easy to move in and this fit the bill perfectly. The only downside is the fabric is quite heavy, on a hot summer day it might not have been so comfortable.

Beautiful silhoette
This dress definitely runs small and the 6R was about an inch too short with three inch heels. It fit like a glove otherwise (I'm 5'5" about 128lbs) but was tight in the torso when sitting down. The color is beautiful and it gives you a great shape when standing.

I received so many compliments on this dress, beautiful fit and perfect for a winter event!
Dress fits snug around the waist and down to the knee, but the fit is great. I ordered my regular size 4 and a 6R as backup, but it was huge. The dress definitely fits true to size. I was able to wear a regular bra with it and spanks underneath. Fabric is thick, but comfortable and perfect for the winter time. Loved this amazing dress, I'd rent it again!!

Great fitting dress, got lots of compliments! Hugs higher waist with peplum to be very flattering!
I'm 5'7" and wore 3 inch heels which just peaked under the bottom of the dress when i walked, but kept the dress from hitting the floor. The back dips just low enough to show some bra strap but hardly worth extra accommodations, just plan on wearing a black/navy bra to be less noticeable.

Absolutely stunning
The dress fit like a glove. Made me look like I actually have a figure! It accentuated everything I wanted to, and hid all the rest ;) I received so many compliments. I am 5'7" and could only wear 1-2" heels in the "Tall" without it being too short, though! Sooo pleased with this rental. Would definitely rent again.

It fit like a glove - I received so many compliments! The length was perfect. The dress definitely runs small - I would have been more comfortable with the next size up but it was not available. The reviews were all accurate which made it very easy to set expectations for this dress!

Very flattering for all body types.
I loved this dress and felt very comfortable all night. I'm 5'9" and the dress barely hit the floor with flats so I highly recommend the long length. I could wear a normal bra but I pinned the straps to the dress just in case. No shapewear needed as the fabric is stretchy and smooths everything out. Highly recommend!

Runs a size smaller as I usually wear a size 8, happy to be able to get 2 sizes.

tight in reg cage, material was diff than i expected
i am 5'2" 120 pounds and 32DDD. The length with 3 inch heels was PERFECT! Also i didn't need a bra which is basically unheard of. The dress fit BUT it wasn't super comfy. The rib cage was slightly tight which doesn't really happen to me? Anyways, i rented 3 so this was a no. IF it was my only one i would wear but def size up for back up IMO p.s the material reminds me of bridesmaid chiffon, idk, its not my favorite... looks more casual

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.

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!

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!

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.
