Perfect for pear shapes The hips are huge! And it's obvious how large it is I have an athletic shape and it did not work at all for me and it was tight in the bust It is not a heavy material and it's a dress that can get away for less formal events as cocktails or dinner Nice length too bad the waist and hips are huge

Comfortable and beautiful print

Fun dress for formal event

The dress is fun and a very nice and comfortable quality. Slightly tight over the chest, loose on the hips and made a funny fold around the waist, that kind of fitted with the design of the dress though. A little less formal than expected due to the fabric. Only design fault was though that the hem on the bottom was made out of the same fabric, which meant that there were white pattern up against dart parts due to the fabric used for hemming was with the white pattern. When using patterned fabric to hem a dress across the dress, one should make sure that the colours match up, which they didn't. Maybe small detail, but would not have bought the dress for that reason as it distracts when you look at it. But very cute dress for an event, perfect for a winter wedding or semi-formal holiday party.

Everyone loves the dress. The flower design on it was unique and gorgeous. Great fit and cut!

I did need heels otherwise it would have sagged in the floor. Gear fit, makes your worst look small.

It fit well and true to size

It’s form fitting and I needed help zipping up but once in, it fit perfectly and I received tons of compliments. Much prettier on than in pics online.

Perfect and fun for a gala

Great material as it didn't wrinkle easily! I rented the 14 and 16, but the 14 was more comfortable in the chest area. Material was thick enough that I didn't need to wear a bra - definite plus!

Very comfortable formal dress

I like this feminine Dylan Gown by black Halo. Running true to size with some stretch, I recommend wearing your true size and going up for your back up. This style is fitted throughout the midsection and fitted at the hips. It works for A-C cups sizes. You are not able to wear a standard bra with this dress. You should wear a strapless bra since it s strapless dress.

Loved!

I rented this for a gala and loved it! It was a different pattern and the colors popped on it. I also liked the way the bottom came up in the front and it is perfect for taller girls! Fit was tight but comfortable. Would recommend.

The dress, believe it or not was perfect for a winter wonderland theme.

The rich jewel tones on the brown/black base made for a nice compliment to faux fur accessories. I did order the 14 and 16 and with most designers it ran small, so I opted for the 16.

Unique and Loved It!

Loved this dress. It makes your waist look small and fits like a glove. Very unique in a sea of black dresses. I'm 5'4 and 140 lbs and the 6 was perfect. It was a little long in the back for me but didn't bother me. Also, I wore bronze/copper colored shoes which matched the tones in the dress perfectly.

Not for a pear shape!

This dress is really beautiful and I was so sad I was not able to wear it. In bottoms, I usually wear an 8. In tops, I normally wear a 4. In this dress, the hips were right but the top did not stay up - not even close.

Unique design, ordered as a backup.

The 10 fit more comfortably so if size up. The material is not formal but the cut and design could make this formal by easily styling it up or down.

Runs small, size up one or two if you are busty

I really loved the dress, it was just too tight in the chest area. Anything smaller than a triple D might work. Fit gray everywhere else. Rented another dress for a formal affair instead of this one. Fabric, style and design are gorgeous. I just wish there was a better way to find out about items and their fit instead of having such hit or miss with RTR. I got it when it first came out, had tags, so I had no other reviewer's to rely on for the fit.

Fun for a black tie wedding

Great, easy to wear dress. The fabric is stretchy and doesn't wrinkle. It was comfy for both sitting and dancing. I am 5"7 and wore a 2 inch heel, and the back of the dress still draped on the floor, so I had to be careful walking and dancing. I always fall between 10 and 12, and it was the same with this dress. Though the 12 was more comfy in the midsection, I chose the 10 because the top didn't slip down. Would rent again.

Still receiving compliments!

Ordered this dress to wear to my sorority’s formal debutante ball. This dress was absolutely amazing and more beautiful in person. I normally wear a size 6 dress And got a back up size 8 and both were still too small, especially in the boob area (34DD) RTR was amazing and overnighted the size 10 just in time for my event!

The Georgetown store came through!!

This dress was an unforeseen backup and I couldn't have been more pleased!! The two dresses I originally ordered came days early (a great thing), so I went to the store to try them on and neither fit. :(. The staff at the Georgetown location came to the rescue!! They found several pieces and I ultimately chose this dress! I was going for something different and this was it! The fit was perfect and I received several compliments!! I accessorized the dress with emerald green drop earrings and a simple gold bracelet. I chose. Jessica Simpson mauve colored shoe, that complimented the dress perfectly!! As a first time client of RTR, I will definitely use them again!

More conservative IRL, some awkward fitting

This dress is pretty but the fit was odd, it was very snug in the hips and had extra space hanging over in the bust. It also was quite long, not sure if there is meant to be a train or if it just was too long for me. The muted colors make it a bit more conservative in person, in spite of the strapless cut. I didn't end up wearing it (to a black-tie wedding with friends), would maybe wear to a formal event where I didn't know many people, or that was a professional affair.

Beautiful fabric and print!

Fit perfectly. At 5'6", the train dragged a bit on the floor, wearing flats. A small heel would easily fix that. :)

Loved the colors!

Fit tight in the chest, so I went up a size and was still a bit snug, but there is a fair amount of stretch. For reference I'm a 34DD. The floral placement differs on each dress, so each looks a bit different and can be more flattering depending on where they fall on the dress. Overall, I liked the dress and got a lot of compliments!

Good fit, even for pear shape

I rented this through my unlimited to see how the fit would be before committing to it for a gala in a couple months. Surprised it fit pretty well though I think I may try something else A lined. If I end up with this one I'll need to get some really good shapewear.

Spanish themed gala

This dress fit like a glove. I wore it to a formal fundraising event with a Spanish theme. I did need to wear higher heels (4") as the train of the dress is a bit long. I am 5'6". Also, I have a long torso and the corset boning in the top is meant for a longer torso (I believe). Otherwise, it was a flattering stress.

A comfy standout

Such a comfy dress and never once did I have to do that pull up to keep the dress where it is supposed to be. Best of all, it is a subtle yet unique, eye catching print. The dress really stands out in a sea of solid colors. It was elegant and fun and I'd rent it again for the same type of event. It would make a great formal dress for a wedding too! I wore it for an awards event in L.A. and got a ton of compliments!

Super comfy- very flattering for large busted girls

This is a very true to size dress. Semi stretchy fabric, but overall extremely flattering. I was surprised by the feeling of the fabric- it felt a little polyester-y to me. I didn't end up wearing this dress, but not because it wasn't a good fight.

A beautiful dress that would yield a lot of compliments, didn't end up wearing it though.

The bust and waist fit well but there was too much extra fabric through the hips that wouldn't suit a tall slender body type. Maybe if I sized down to 8 it would have worked. The fabric is soft and the print is lovely. One thing to note is the background color isn't full black, it has olive/green undertones. It didn't suit my fair skin tone as well as I'd have liked. The back of the dress hit the floor perfectly with 3" heels. If your more pear shaped this dress would be great.
