So many compliments!

I rented this for a wedding last summer. I loved the dress! I just wish I had taken a photo of it. It was a little long (just to the knee) but it worked out fine.

Beautifully made, but runs very small in the chest
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
The color, fabric and construction is beautiful, but unfortunately I couldn't wear this dress because it is very very small in the chest. It has an inner bra/girdle, and even on last hook, I couldn't get my girls in. A better choice for a 32 A or B.

Fit perfectly! The extra hooks in the back made it fit like a glove. Very comfortable and classy. Not one complaint!

Tight boning in bodice
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is a beautiful color but the fit was a little tough for me. Both the 4 and the 6 were quite small in the chest for me - the boning gave my breasts a slightly strange shape from a profile view. The 6 was too big in the waist and hips so I ended up going with the 4. It ultimately ended up fine, but I can't say it was the most comfortable dress I've ever rented.

fun for holiday cocktails!
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress totally exceeded my expectations. The purple color is a lot brighter (more festive!) in person. I definitely recommend taking the time to talk to one of the fit-specialists - I'm 5'10" and usually wear an 8 but I wasn't confident about a strapless/designer dress. The specialist seemed positive the 8 would work, but suggested I order up a size for backup. She was right - I ended up wearing the 8. It was definitely "snug" at the chest, but the 10 was too big around the waist.

LOVED it! The built-in bustier meant I wasn't pulling it up at all, even with my tiny a-cup bust. I danced for hours and the dress stayed right in place. Order a size down for your back-up. I'm usually a 6 or 8 but they were huge. Luckily RTR was able to overnight a 4 in time for me. It's a beautifully crafted dress:)

This is a lovely dress. Great color and fabric. The trick is getting it to fit, especially around the bust line. The built-in corset is helpful, however it still was not enough to prevent the dreaded gap that often occurs with strapless dresses. If you have a narrow frame (not much flesh between top of bust line and armpits) then you may want to consider going with another dress (not strapless).

A much brighter purple than in the picture, but very pretty. I didn't end up wearing this dress because it didn't look that flattering in the sizes I had. I'm a 6, mainly because of my bigger hips. I decided to size up in case this dress was narrow through the hips as many fitted dresses are. Both the 6 and the 8 were too big. The 6 was close. But, the stomach had a little extra fabric and because of the style of the dress it pooched out and did not look flattering. I'm also small chested and there was a little too much room up top in the 6. I could have made it work, but I had another dress that fit better, so I wore that. I would recommend sizing down in this dress for your backup.
