The event was so fun but I felt self-conscious all night.

Size worn: 38R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I ordered a 36R and a 38R. The 36 was slightly too small and the 38 was huge. I have a seamstress for a mother and she creatively pinned it and used fashion tape to make it look good, but it was a nightmare. Furthermore, I ordered a regular length and not a long because I am 5'4". The dress barely skimmed my toes. I had to run out and buy expensive flats at the last minute. If you are of average height or want to wear heels, order a long.

The color of this dress was stunning!

Size worn: 42L
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is a beautiful color. I received many compliments on it. I wore it to my work's Christmas party. I usually wear a size 4 or 6 dress depending on the cut. The 38 in this dress was so tight around my rib cage I couldn't zip it up. The 42 was too big around the rib cage but at least I could zip it. I don't have a huge chest, 34A, so maybe if I had a bigger bust the 42 would've fit better. The cut in front is a pretty deep V so I opted to pin the straps in back to make them shorter & not so plunging for my work event. Altogether the dress was perfect for the money. Comfortable & loose through the hips. It was a good first experience for RTR!

As royal as royal blue gets.

Size worn: NONE
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I was specifically looking for a royal blue dress and immediately fell in love when I saw this in person. It has a gorgeous x-crossing in the back and does well mixing chiffon and silk. Unfortunately, the 34R was too small for my waist and too short for my height. Had I gone up a size, it would have been perfect being that it was less than an inch away from closing. The next size was unavailable for the time I needed, which I really wish was because this dress was absolutely beautiful.

I wore the 38L which is a size 4. I ordered the 36 L but it was too tight in the chest. If you have a wide shoulder/chest area, I would recommend the 38L. I wore 5 inch heels with this and you could still see my shoes, I recommend 4 inch heels or smaller.

Great color and very nice high end looking materials.

Size worn: 34R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was very beautiful. Great vivid color. Like other reviewers said the rib cage area was very tight! I have a small frame and am a 32B and it was a struggle to zip it up on my own and with assistance. But once I got it zipped, the tightness didn't feel uncomfortable and I didn't notice it through the night. I didn't need a bra and didn't feel uncomfortable I wasn't wear a bra. There are built in cups. The zipper area bulged out a little but I used fashion tape to tape the overlay layer over to hide it. The overlay chiffon-y layer on the bust flares out on the sides so it looks like your breast has wings but a little fashion tape fixed this problem easily. Im 5'2 and have 29" inseam and 34R length was perfect and just 1in above ground with my 3inch heels. No need for hooker heels. Overall I liked the tight fit, design of the bodice and materials. I'd recommend as long as you get a back up size larger just in case. Works for small chested women.

I wore it for my sorority formal and it was perfect. It is a beautiful, comfortable, rich color.

Size worn: 34R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I am about 120 pounds the 34 fit perfectly because it is very fitted at the waist and allows more room in the hips. I am 5'6", so the dress was right at the floor without shoes on, so with heels it was a little short but I kind of liked it better that way because it kept it lighter and prevent me from ever tripping on it. The "long" style length fit the way it shows in the picture, but they were out of 34L and the 36 was too large. No bra needed!

I wore this to a black tie wedding. The color is so deep, and the fabric is gorgeous. It was quite tight around the waist, but didn't feel uncomfortable until the end of the night. The fabric is so soft and the rest of the dress is incredibly comfortable. Added bonus, there are lightweight bra pads that make it so that you do not need a bra. I literally have never gone without some type of bra, but the pads and shape if the dress made it comfortable and easy to do so. Really an elegant, unique gown!

Fabric is very unforgiving, so order a size above your normal one instead of below. I ended up going one up. The dress was hemmed to the floor...I usually expect dresses to be long because I'm pretty short (5'3"), but I had to wear flats.

Size worn: 36R
Overall fit: True to Size

I ordered a size 34R and 36R and ended up wearing the 36R. The smaller size wouldn't zip around the bust. I ordered Regular lengths because I don't wear super high heels and I thought it would be ok. It was shorter than I would've liked but it wasn't a huge deal. If you're 5'8" or above, definitely get the long, even if wearing flats. Other than that, it fit beautifully and it moved very well. I felt beautiful in the color and I got many compliments : )

Outstanding color and moved well when I danced

Size worn: 44L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
If you are larger in your rib area, this dress is unforgiving. The color is incredible! I received many compliments because of the color. The draping is flattering on the lower half, but the upper part is a bit saggy. I'm not sure if it is the crepe-like overlay or what, but still nice. The front does dip really low, so be sure you have adequate support (and your chicken cutlets!) I am 5'7" and typically wear a size 12 dress. I wore 4" platforms and wore the L version. The regular was too short with flats.

I loved this dress.

Size worn: 36R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The essential measurement on this dress is about two inches below the bra line---the waist of the dress cinches right around the lower rib cage. If you can get your lower rib cage in the dress then there will be plenty of room for chest and hips. I wear bra size 34-C. I ordered dress sizes 34R and 36R and wore the 36R. I had to hold my breath to get the zipper past the bottom of my rib cage, but once I got the zipper up the dress fit beautifully!

This dress was definitely a head-turner!

Size worn: 38L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wish I owned this dress! The color is great- and a true deep deep blue, though my roommate thought it looked like a deep purple. I usually wear a 4, sometimes a 2 and even more rarely a 6 (especially if something is tight in the bust). I ordered 38L so that I could wear 6'' heels, a plan that worked perfectly as the dress just grazed the floor with my shoes on. My backup was 40R since some people said it was fitted in the bust. I actually found my 38L loose in the bust. It gaped a little on the sides, and I am a 32D. My thought is that it can hold up to a D cup size easily, but my smallish rib cage (32) didn't fill it out all the way around. I wished I had ordered down a size for my backup. It's true there isn't much give room in the near-empire waist, but in my case down a size in my backup would have been good. The material is gorgeous, with just the right amount of shine and matte to make the dress very adult but fun.

I wore this dress to my first Mardi Gras ball, and felt elegant, but not boring. The color was great, and the dress was simple enough to wear some of my beloved vintage jewelry with it!

Size worn: 40L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I agree with the other reviewers who commented that the dress is a bit big on top. I got two sizes: the 38L and the 40L - the 38 fit better on my chest/upper body, but was a bit too tight across my hips, so I wore the 40. It looked fine on top, it just didn't feel as snug as I'm used to across the chest. I also agree with the other reviewers that the dress runs short. I got the Long, and the length was perfect with 3" heels - it skimmed the floor, but I wasn't tripping on it (I'm 5'6"). Overall, I have to say that I was extremely happy with the dress! I loved the color (deep purple!), and the dress was VERY comfortable (no pulling or digging in or rubbing anywhere)!!

I wore this dress to a friend's wedding with flat roman sandals. I am 5'4" and with flats it definitely grazed the floor the way it does on the model. Unfortunately, I went a size up, and had to use the fashion tape to hold me in. Im usually a size 2, and the38R( size4) was definitely large on the bust area when I wore it. I wore it with no bra on, thankfully the fashion tape held!

I DIDN'T WEAR IT!

Size worn: 38R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I ordered the correct size and fit perfect in length but only if I could have had it tailored. I read through every review to figure out what size and length would be best for me and I definitely hit it on the nail but like the other reviews, the top was too big on by at least another cup size and at the hips it was a hair too tight, like when a dress has that stretched, wrinkled look to it and it didn't allow the material to lay the way it was designed. I believe my hip measurement is 39". The shear overlay I thought looked a little tacky and in the back as well, parts of the shear had runs in different areas, which I definitely was not a fan of but for the rental price, it would have done well it if fit my shape better.

This dress fit me well - usually I'm a size 6, but the 8 gave me a bit of wiggle room. It was a little frayed in the back because of the gauzy overlay, but it held up well throughout my event. The color is a little more jeweled-toned and brighter than it appears in the photos.

Beautiful dress, but odd fit

Size worn: 36L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I'm only 5'5" ladies and the 34R just grazed the floor with NO heels, thank goodness all you reviewers steered me towards the long, with modest heels the long barely skimmed the floor. the 34 was really tight in the ribs, I'm usually a zero no problem - BUT I definitely had to go with the 36 on this one. Also the wing-boob thing another reviewer mentioned is totally accurate, maybe the dress just has seen to many wears but the chiffon poofs out a little weird on the side. ALL that being said, it's a stunning dress and I still loved it - just a few caveats!

However, it runs extremely small. I had to wear supportive stockings and spanx to make it fit. I also ended up wearing the larger size. It is a true royal blue color which I just decided is not my color. It was really short too. I got the regular length and it cut off at my ankles. I am only 5"3. I would suggest going with the long for anyone over 5"0.

I did not end up wearing this, since my original dress fit better. I ordered 2 sizes (I think 34 and 36, although I no longer remember). The smaller dress did not zip all the way around my ribs, though my bust would have looked better in it. It also seemed a bit short to wear with heels. The larger dress zipped, but sat awkwardly and seemed too large in the bust. The fabric seemed a bit flimsy, too. There is absolutely no stretch to it. The color was really beautiful, but unfortunately this dress just did not fit my body.

I'm only 5'4" and rented the long size due to the other reviews. It was the perfect length (with about 3" heels). There were a few issues with the 36L.... the fabric in the front looked like it had come unattached somewhere and was droopy on one side. Also, one of the straps was very awkwardly long. Luckily, I was able to do some temporary magic fixing and made all of it work and I have to say that after all that, I loved this dress! The color and fabric were perfect and it was actually pretty comfortable too.

I was very disappointed in this dress.

Size worn: 38R

The reviews said it ran small in the top, but it was baggy on me. I am a 36A and usually a perfect 8. It was baggy on top and I had to wear a VERY padded bra to be able to wear it at all. It was still a bit baggy though in the top. It runs short too. I am 5'7" and it barely reached the floor without heals. I had to wear it because the back-up that I ordered was worse, but it was overall a disappointing experience.

I'm not sure what type of woman this dress is best suited for, but it is not for anyone with boobs. While others said the top runs large, I actually found it to be a little snug, but the crepe overlay was saggy making my chest look really awkward. And while it was short enough for someone petite, the top was very long and as someone with a short torso, I just couldn't get it to work. If you are thin and athletic I think this dress would be perfect for you! One of the dresses I received was also damaged. I hope RTR does a better job of checking those things!

Size worn: 40R
Overall fit: Small

I did not wear this dress to my event but it is a beautiful color. The dress runs pretty small I would go at least a size up maybe 2. The biggest issue with the dress is the length. I am 5'5 and the dress hem hits above my feet before I put on shoes or heels. It looks odd at that length so I did not wear it. Get the long if you order the dress. Also one of the straps in the back had a slight tear in the chiffon. Thankfully I had another dress that worked perfectly thanks to RTR.

The color really pops out without being too obnoxious. Great dress for the wedding I attended. The draping is very flattering and I would highly recommend this dress

Fabulous color created a stunning entrance. Didn't want to send it back.

The smaller size fit perfectly in shoulders but couldn't get it zipped over ribcage - had to wear larger size which was slightly large in shoulder area.

WAYYYYYYY too small!

Size worn: 34R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I didn't actually order this dress. I received it as a backup when the second size of the dress I originally ordered was unavailable. I had ordered the other dress in a 4R and 2R and this dress was a replacement for the 2R. Bottom line: I would have had to shrink my rib cage by at least 3 inches in order to fit into this dress. I usually wear either 2 or 4 in dresses and a 32B in most bras but I think the 34R of this dress would have fit someone who is normally a size 0. Beautiful dress but I wish I had received it in a size that was somewhere close to fitting.
