I received a TON of compliments from men and women on this dress and how amazing it was.
it fit perfectly and I felt great wearing it. I kept it simple, I wore a 2" diamond pin on the top of the right shoulder and dangle diamond earring drops... it was just enough and really made a statement. I would definitely rent this dress again for another event.

It's been a year since I wore this and people are STILL talking about it.
So, I thought I would save a buck by buying a cheap dress from amazon and having the alterations done on it. Wrong. The alterations were $100 on top of the cost of the dress I was just ok with... So I scrambled to find this dress all last minute and this was all there really was left because I needed it shipped the next day. I thought the dress would be ok, but ... wow! I had no idea this dress would be as amazing as it was. Pictures do not do it justice! I normally wear a 6 but got a 6 and a 4 because there were no 8s left. I never thought I would fit the 4 but IT FIT ME LIKE A GLOVE. Seriously like it was made for me. At the party people didn't recognize me until I started talking to them. I remember thinking at one point "This is what Cinderella must have felt like!" I danced the night away with a smile on the whole evening. :) I was so sad to return it, BUT this week I found out I could buy it as final sale. Absolutely worth every penny. I will wear this dress again. I'm very serious that people still talk about this dress to me - I was "the girl in the green dress" and it was magical. :)

I LOVED this dress!! I considered buying it. I wore it to a Mardi Gras Krewe Ball. It was comfortable. The color was gorgeous and it fit so well. I would definitely rent again.

Loved the color, a little tight but still worked!
It was a little tight in the butt area. I wore a size 14r but it fit in all other areas. I think it's a great dress and can be dressed up with jewelry. I was able to wear a regular bra too!

Fun Emerald Green Gown
I rented this beautiful green full length gown for a Black Tie Wedding. The color is stunning & the material is nice. Not itchy or cheap feeling. It is a bit thick but I was surprisingly comfortable all evening & this wedding was in MAY in MISSISSIPPI. The dress has a mermaid or trumpet shape to it, so it can hug your curves in all the right places. Invisible zipper so grab a friend to help you get it on/off. I ended up wearing the larger size so I could walk/sit down comfortably. I loved being in a beautifully made gown in a sea of black or retired prom dresses. Try to ignore my goofy husband.

Almost Perfect
The color was amazing, the material was thick but not extremely heavy or hot for this May wedding. My only complaint was the length. Being 5'9" most of the longs I rent have been very long and I've gotten to wear heels. This one I couldn't wear more than a 2" heel and that was a little disappointing. Otherwise it was a great dress and I got a lot of compliments.

Didn't wear it
Beautiful dress and color but unfortunately it didn't fit me well. I'm long in the torso and this didn't hit me in the right spots. On a different body type this dress will be beautiful

I had to sing at my SIL's wedding as she walked down the aisle!
Fit like a glove (seriously, i wore 2 pairs of spanx) and the bra strap holders were a great touch but beware because they can dig into your shoulders a bit- i definitely had marks when I took the dress off. The color was stunning, I was able to dance, and I got compliments ALL night long. Fabric was a little heavier than I expected but the event was mostly indoors and air conditioned so not too bad. Would totally rent again!

Great Dress
I loved this dress and received many compliments. It fit snug but the material gave a little. I'm an event manager so I wore the dress a lot longer than anyone would if they were just attended an event. I usually wear dress size 14 and this was a 14 regular and fit well. I'm 5'3" and wore flats and had no problem with the dress dragging. I have large hips and a large bust and I think this dress looked great and fit in all the right places. Wish i had a picture to share

Fabulous
I loved this dress and got a million compliments at a black tie event. It's perfect if you are curvy and the slightly thick (not too thick) fabric hides everything. This would definitely not work for anyone taller than me in the regular length. I had 2-3" heels on and regular high heels would have looked strange. It has a slight stretch, and both the 4 & 6 fit but I went with the 6 since I planned on eating and drinking a lot :). Overall loved it and would rent it again in a heartbeat.

I liked the dress a LOT and received tons of compliments. Beautiful color.
I am smaller in the bust are so my only complaint is that it is a bit bigger in the bust area. I'm sure not many women will have the same issue.

Stunning Color
I'm between sizes 2 and 4 in dresses, so naturally I ordered both. At 5'10"/5'11", I ordered the long in each. The 2 was slightly too short, so I wore the 4 - mainly for the length. This was JUST long enough to not be noticeably too short. (When I say it runs small, I'm saying it runs short) The dress hugs every curve, and is gorgeous in color. The arms and neck were a little tight - and this seemed to be the same tightness in both sizes. Lastly, my waist is a good amount smaller than my hips, so while the dress was fitted through my hips, it would bunch at the waist and I would have to pull it down. No one could notice any of the cons, except me. Had I had a backup, I may not have worn this, but it did the trick for the wedding.

Well made dress.
I did not end up wearing this dress but only because I have unlimited and rented 3 different dresses for one event. This dress is well made, fits great, very comfortable. You definitely need a big statement necklace or bold earrings but the color is very pretty. I am 5'4 and could wear a low (2 inch heel) so get the long if you want to wear tall shoes.

I wore this dress to a winter gala and was complimented all night. I'm 5'5" and wore a 2 inch heel and the dress was the perfect length. It was comfortable with a thick material. Highly recommend!

All the compliments I got. Very tailored and classic dress.
Fit was true to size for me and I'm 5-6 and the R length was perfect with a pair of normal heels. Very classic style dress that you can dress up with jewelry. Color is a true green and went amazingly with my red hair. Loved it!!!

Forgettable
The material feels very cheap - like thick crepe paper? The color is gorgeous and the length on the long is good for a 5'9 to wear short heels. Runs a bit small - just the lining on the inside anyway. I normally wear a 14 no problem and the liner made this one impossible to wear. Also would not recommend this for anyone that is busty as it really brings attention there. Hits weird on the hips and makes curvy girls look yuck.

Tons of compliments amongst a sea of RTR dresses
I got the 2R and 4R as I am seven weeks postpartum and wasn't sure what size would work. I'm about 125 pounds and 5' 2". The dress was thicker and laid nicely while not showing off too much of my not as firm bod! I wore the 4R but could have easily worn the 2R. The only difference was probably a half inch length and a little tightness in the chest area. There were tons of RTR dresses at the gala I attended, but I received tons of compliments from the sea of black and navy.

Great Color and Cut!!
This color is gorgeous but I would say it's more a Kelly Green than Emerald Green. I am 5'4" and the regular length was perfect with a 3-4 inch heel. This dress hugs your curves beautifully, but was a little snug from the hip down making it a little difficult to walk up stairs and get into and out of vehicles. The lining underneath shifts a bit also and the seams in the lining can be seen. The dress does not have any stretch to it and the material is a heavy material, I was a little hot at times in 70 degree weather. You can wear a regular bra with the dress which is a plus for me! Received many compliments on the dress, was very happy with this dress!

Beautiful color!
I got so many compliments on this dress and it was so comfortable. I rented the 6 & 8 and went with the 8 since it was more comfortable for my chest. The length was also a bit longer. I wore short 1 1/2 inch heels and I'm 5'11" to begin with. The dress didn't touch the floor but that was perfect for dancing all night at the wedding! It arrived a bit wrinkled and didn't unwrinkle beforehand but I was nervous to iron as I have done that in the past with dresses and ruined them. Overall a great rental for tall ladies!

I absolutely loved this dress. It was super comfortable and the color was amazing. I got a lot of compliments and felt great in it all day long. It ran true to size but was a little short for me. I am 5'7" and wore a 3.5in heel and I probably could have done a long version.

Felt constricting, heavy, still a beautiful dress
I was sent this as a back-up dress because they did not have my available dress in the back-up size. It felt very heavy on and almost overwhelmingly so, where I just want to take it off after about 5 minutes. Looked beautiful though and to be fair they did a decent job picking a replacement for me considering I missed the emails to choose another dress. Luckily my "regular size" worked in the dress that I actually chose and this was a little large on me so I wouldn't have worn it anyways.

I can't begin to tell you how many compliments I received wearing this dress as Mother of the Bride!
This dress is very fitted, so every curve shows. The lining and fabric make for a "heavy" dress for summer, but I was fine b/c I'm cold-natured. I absolutely loved it!

Like a glove -- but not for hot weather!
This dress was so fabulous, and I received so many compliments on it. The green is a gorgeous lush emerald -- a little hard to capture in photos! I actually ended up wearing the smaller size in this, so that it would have that snug, fits-like-a-glove fit. It is cut close to the body, flaring out at the knees like a "mermaid" style gown, so to sit I had to hitch the skirt up a little! I'm 5'8" and the Long version ended up perfect with my moderate 2.5"ish heels. I think if I had 3" heels it would've been the perfect length. Down-sides? The dress is nice and thick, which you want in such a slim fitting dress, but it was heavy and got pretty stuffy as the venue heated up. I was glad the event was indoors -- I would have died if I'd had to be in the hot sun wearing this!! It did arrive with a small flaw -- a part of the seam near the bottom was missing a section of thread. I pinned it, no problems! I did have to adjust my bra straps to accommodate the cut-away arms, but no big problem there. Overall, I was very happy with this rental and was sad to send it back!

RTR Team Review
The fit of this dress is amazing and very flattering! I am wearing a size six in the photo. The dress does fit true to size. The dress is fitted in the mid-section, waist and hips. I recommend curvier women going a size up for their backup size. The fabric does have some stretch to it. This dress is great for any cup size. I am a 36D and felt very comfortable in the dress. The dress can be worn with a standard bra. This is the perfect dress for a formal party. Pair with black heels and gold jewelry.

Dress was too large and the fit was not flattering.
I was excited for this dress but, unfortunately, it was too large and long and the material was a lot thicker than I thought it would be, making me look wider/thicker than I am. I didn't feel good wearing it so I ended up running out and buying a dress for the fundraiser event I had to attend. Hope this info helps other petite women who are looking into renting this dress (for reference I'm 5'4, 110 lbs, 34C and usually wear a size 2 in dresses).

Walked in to the Flatiron store and rented this 2 days before the event!
Rented this for a day to evening wedding. Loved the color and the length. Wish it hid my "don't-want-to-leave-baby-gut" a little more but overall I loved it. It was comfortable to move/dance in and people loved it. Glad I rented this one!

I attended a gala to raise money for children.
This dress is absolutely gorgeous. I received so many compliments on the color and it was nice to stand out amongst all the black dresses. I am 5 2' and the dress length was perfect on me with moderate heel. It is a great fit for curvy women.

Great dress for a black tie event!
I loved this dress! Form fitting but not super tight. Also loved that I could wear a regular bra with this. The only thing I would have done differently is rent the long. I'm about 5'6 and with heels I think I could have used the extra length.
