Did not wear 0R

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

I am 5'8" and wore a 3om heel the back is long. If I wore a lower heel it would Touch the floor. I am 2 months post baby and this was flattering and stretchy.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

BEAUTIFUL DRESS!!!

The dress fit as expected. Secure on top so no worrying about having to keep pulling the top up. Corset-like on top then flares out a bit. I wish the corset fit went down lower because it ended right at my lower stomach which tends to stick out (mother of 2). Easy to dance in! I had so many compliments from strangers and acquaintances alike about my dress! I seriously debated purchasing it to keep. I had a great experience with RTR and will use them again for sure!

The pattern and design are pretty. The size I ordered was too big and I knew that was a risk. So I didn't wear, but will try to see if available in my size for another event.

Nice dress

Nice fit, true to size. As with any dress with a train, people will step on it all night. It wasn't too long though and I am short. The front flap is a little strange as it doesn't lay down flat. I'm not sure if it's supposed to fold in one of the spots, but it was odd. Nice dress for a one-time wear.

Perfect fit

I wore this dress for a formal event. It was a perfect fit. I'm 5'4" 115lbs. I order the 2r & 0r for back up. Both fit, but the 2r had a little more room in the hips. A lot of the reviews said this dress ran small. I didn't find that to be the case at all. It fit pretty true to size. Loved this dress!

No one had a dress like this!!

Great fit and the high low was something I've never tried for a formal event before. Literally there were MULTIPLE people wearing the same black rhinestone dress with nude cutouts. This dress was so unique and being able to experience with fashion is one of the many reasons I love RTR.

Long but fabulous!

Got so many compliments on this dress all night. Loved the high-low look, however only being 5'4", the back was still pretty long on me, even with 3"+ heels. Was still very comfortable, good stretchy material.

I love this dress. It was perfect for a June garden wedding.

PROs: Beautiful, unique, received many compliments. CONs: Torso is a little short, the dress rode very low on my chest, which was a little risky on the dance floor. The hips are also very wide in relation to the rest of the dress. Overall: LOVED IT.

This fit so well! Got tons of compliments!

Fit perfectly all around. Strapless but stayed up with my strapless bra underneath it with no problem. I'm 5'5" and it was a little long but my heels did the trick.

Felt so beautiful

I'm usually a 4 plus a 32G but got the 4 & 6 for safety. Ended up wearing the 6 with some shapewear to fit my boobs because the mermaid fit is definitely tight were it not for my chest i probably could have done the 4...but I felt like the (2nd to the bride) most beautiful person in the room. Quality is incredible and I was very happy!

Silky flowers

This dress was beautiful and the material felt beautiful. It fit perfectly except for it cut low on the sides of my boobs so it didn't go straight across my bust, but dipped before my armpits. This made my boobs look bigger than they are (which might be good for smaller breasted ladies), but I was worried about the constant adjustment. Also, people have mentioned this- but the garment straps are close to impossible to keep inside. If I were to pick this, I would probably do a single stitch on the inside of the dress or physically tape them down.

Really unique and pretty dress

This dress runs small and I would suggest ordering it a size up or two. When I sized up, I found the dress was a little big in places, but my normal size was too small. However, even given that it didn't fit me perfectly, it was still pretty flattering and it's a really unique and beautiful design. Good for shorter people who need a black tie dress because it has the high low cut at the bottom. I'm 5'3" and wore three inch heels and it worked well together.

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.

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.
