Lovely comfortable dress. The pockets were great and even a cell phone didn't ruin the profile of the dress. Fantastic!

Dress is great at providing an hour glass shape.
The dress fit me perfectly due to the lower half allowing room for people with hips. The print is pretty and bold. I received compliments all night.

LOVE!
This dress is amazing, I'm 5"11 and it was long enough to be comfortable standing and sitting. I wore it to a new years eve lunch and paired it with a black belt. I got a ton of compliments and the pockets are great. I could have worn a 6 but the 8 fit well.

The perfect combo of conservative and bling!
This dress is darling for a holiday luncheon at the country club with suede boots, and can be dressed up with heels, a black blazer and great jewelry for a night out. There is just enough metallic to make it special, and the fit and quality material is very flattering/forgiving.

Dramatic colors
I like this designer very much and have worn long gowns of his before. This dress was comfortable, and the gathers on the skirt did not make the dress overly full. Plus it had pockets! Ultimately I wore another dress that I rented for the same wedding. The colors of this dress are dramatic, but "very blue/black" which would look better on either a blond or a warmer skin tone.

This was my backup dress so I actually didn't wear it to the wedding I was at which was such a shame I loved this dress. Dress was so comfortable stunning material will definitely rent this dress again.

Fantastic and comfortable dress!
This dress was so incredibly comfortable and fun and it has pockets! I'm a sucker for any dress with pockets. I was able to wear normal and comfortable undergarments with it and got lots of compliments. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a classy and fun dress to wear to a cocktail party or wedding.

The dress was comfortable and easy to move in....I danced the night away!
The fabric on this dress was absolutely beautiful. It had a very nice hand and was of a substantial weight. However, due to the weight of the material, this dress is better worn in the fall and/or winter. As for the construction of the dress, I was disappointed. None of the previous reviews document the "deconstructed style" of this garment. The darts are exposed as well as the bodice seams connecting to the skirt. If I had known this up-front, I would have invested in a wide belt. At the time that I noticed this issue, it was too late to shop. Everything I currently had in my closet would not have worked...so that was disappointing. At my event, I don't believe anyone noticed this on the dress, but I felt uncomfortable. The back-up dress that I ordered was also created by Carmen Marc Valvo (Spin in Scuba Dress) and it was constructed in a very similar manner. So I am assuming it is the style of this designer. This was my first time ordering from RTR and I was very excited to try it out. The dresses were delivered in a garment bag, pressed and ready to wear. The return was simple and convenient. I will try ordering again but would be prepared to have a few items on hand (i.e. belts, accessories) in the event I would need to accessorize appropriately.

Classy, comfortable dress
Wore this to a fall wedding. Got lots of compliments and felt stylish yet super comfortable all night. Loved the pockets. Wore it with the Cara Dress Me Up bracelet. I ordered the 2 and the 4 and ended up wearing the 2, which is my usual dress size. I'm thicker through the waist but small through the shoulders, so the waist was a teensy bit snug on the size 2, but the 4 was way too roomy on top. Would definitely wear this dress again - loved it.

Great for a fall wedding!
Perfect for a fall wedding. Paired with black tights and chose to go without a necklace as I think the dress makes enough of a statement. The 2 fit like a glove. I could have stood for just a teensy bit more room for the bust (34B) -- something to keep in mind if you're bustier -- but the 4 was too baggy in the torso area. Loved the fuller skirt and the pockets!

Pretty but didn't end up wearing it
The dress fit fine but the skirt was definitely fuller than I anticipated. I have a short waist and in the end the weight of the fabric overwhelmed me. Beautiful quality and for the right person this would be a great dress.

This dress was perfect for the occasion and stood out among the solid black dresses.
The dress material is heavy and of good quality. The dress ran large for me in the waist and chest area, and a size 4 wasn't available. I took a cream colored cotton tie front sweater and wore it over the dress to cinch in the top and it created a cute hourglass shape. The length was perfect- just barely above my knees. I wore a chunky bracelet and pearl earrings and black pumps. It was very comfortable and no need for special undergarments. I loved wearing this dress! Another great experience from RTR!

Constantly received compliments all evening. Loved the cut, color and quality of the dress.
I wore this for a friends late afternoon into evening wedding and I think this dress was perfect. The colors allowed for a nice transition thru the day. The cut was great for my body type as it hid problem areas but made me still shine. The quality of the dress was awesome. The fabric was luxurious and the pattern looked elegant. Really enjoyed this dress and would love to wear again. Got a lot of compliments about how great it looked.

Fit was perfect, I am a 32DDD so it's tough to find dresses that don't pull in the bust but aren't huge in the waist. This dress fit perfectly.

Very pretty but simple, classy party dress.
This dress was very lovely. I wore it for a birthday party dinner in Vegas. Would be very nice for an evening wedding ceremony. I am tall and the length was great, even with my heels on.

Dress you can dance in!
Not my overall favorite dress rental but it did the trick! Wore it to a late summer wedding. It's definitely more on the conservative side since its a high neck but loved that I could wear a normal bra with it. I wished it was an inch or two shorter, it hit right above my knees. I normally rent and always have worn size 6 from RTR but the 4 fit better, so I would say it does run a tiny bit large. It was a little tight on my stomach/chest but I preferred it over the 6 since the skirt on it is puffy so I liked the balance. Could dance and 'get low' in this without showing it all! Overall good rental! Recommend if you want a dress that is fun but still covers you up!

Great for a winter wedding!
Since the fabric was a bit heavier, this was a great fit for a March wedding. I am always worried about length since I am tall, but it perfectly a few inches above the knee. It might be tight for someone with a larger chest, but it fit well for me. Would recommend for fellow pear shaped ladies!

This dress was beautiful.
Fits well, you can wear a normal bra, hides an tummy problems. If you have wide hips or a big bottom this dress will accentuate but not necessarily in an unflattering way. I thought it was slimming overall based on the cut of the dress but my bottom looked enormous because of the fluffiness and shape of the dress. I received several compliments throughout the night. Fit is exactly like on the model - fluffy and loos at the bottom.

It was a close family friends wedding and it was beautiful and romantic
The dress is gorgeous and photographs well. The upper part of the dress was tight and my husband and daughter had to get me into it. I have a large chest so I am assuming this is made for someone smaller chested. The rest of the dress was really comfortable. I loved the pockets. I was able to enjoy the wedding and dance and eat without feeling constricted.

This dress fit a little snug and is not very stretchy. The colors don't pop quite as much in person as they do in the photo. The dress also had a small tear in the back, which was disappointing.

perfect conservative look for a charity event
The material is pretty thick - but in a good way...gives it a nice structured look and fits tighter on top (you want this dress to be tight because it flares out) The silver is beautiful in person and a great contrast for pictures -- sorry i didn't have a picture with more light! You can't go wrong wearing this to a formal event.

Beautiful dress and perfect for an evening formal/black tie wedding.
I'm 5'4 and the length was just above the knee. The shirt puffs out alittle but not to cupcake like. Beautiful color and looks great with black or silver shoes.

Not good for people with large chests
I couldn't wear this dress because it would not my chest. Also, the inside was ripped and when I had my friend try to zip it up, it would rip more. SO sad I couldn't wear it! I really wanted to! :(

super comfy dress
this isn't the most flattering angle for the dress-- it was so fun and poofy on the bottom but a classy cut and color/pattern. it has those little straps to keep your bra in check, but mine kind of showed in the back a little because of the angle of the dress. it was a backup dress after my first didn't fit and i totally loved it-- and it's a great palette for some bold red lipstick :)

Great fit, great shape, and comfortable!
Had a great time in this dress at the wedding I attended. I actually had this dress rush ordered to me as my original rental didn't work. It was perfect for the "summery cocktail attire" the bride requested. (note I live in San Francisco, so summer is a bit cooler than say Texas. Might be a better spring/fall dress for those in warmer climates). The RTR stylists were quick to help and made the process much less stressful than it could have been. The dress was actually showing some wear though, on the back seam, had to fix it with a quick safety pin.
