GO-TO-GIRL REVIEW

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This is a true couture design. What a well-made dress! I could feel how well thought the cut was while wearing this dress. Carolina Herrera really understands a woman’s body and the curvature that us females have! This is a classic and timeless dress, which should be saved for a special occasion. Blow everyone’s socks off in this stunner! This fits true to size! I would size up for backup.

Beautiful dress, runs large

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I'm usually a 0 or a 2, but this dress was only available in a 2, so that's what I ordered. Unfortunately, it was way too big on me =( The dress was amazing, so I was pretty disappointed I didn't get to wear it, but I would highly recommend, and suggest maybe sizing up,

Beyond a great dress - a fabulous couture GOWN

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Amazing experience. Such a structured dress. Gorgeous fabric. Beautiful origami inspired detail. Only real con was that it was a little hard to bend down in it since the bodice has a built in metal corset. But this, of course, is key to the dress since it is so tailored. Also, I was a little nervous because it has a little bit of a tail in the back and it got caught on my heel a couple of times. Highly recommend this gown.

Not what I expected!!!!

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress looks beautiful on the model in the picture but it does not look good in person. It was very itchy inside and the band across the middle made me feel like I had an extra tummy.

One of the more beautifully crafted dresses I have ever worn. A very flattering, elegant dress.

Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was one of the most perfectly crafted dresses I have ever worn. The for was absolutely true to size. 2L runs pretty long. I am 5'8'' and the dress grazed the ground in high heels. I minimally accessorized with earrings since the neckline is very ornate. The fold of fabric in the front makes for a very flattering shape for anyone who is worried about a dress being too form fitting in the tummy area. Overall, one of my favorite dresses I have had the chance to wear.

Perfect dress for a wedding!

Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: Large

I ordered the Carolina Herrera Black Kennedy gown, but for some reason RTR was unable to send it to me. Without missing a beat, they sent this dress instead, and it was perfect. I was a little nervous about the sizing, but once I read it ran large, I felt at ease. It's Carolina Herrera, so obviously the dress was well made. Kudos to RTR for keeping it well maintained. The dress was comfortable and stylish! I loved it.

Classic and elegant

Size worn: 10L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
This dress was sent to me as a replacement for another dress which became unavailable. I've always loved Carolina Herrera's designs but when I tried this on the first time, it wasn't love at first sight. It was itchy around the midsection so I thought that if I had to wear it to an event, it would have been a long night. Three days later just before having to send it back, I gave it another try to take a few pictures. Perhaps I had been a little too harsh on the dress before although it was still a bit itchy and only in that one place which I think had to do with fabric and where it was ending (cut). It was so classic and elegant looking like I could go to a black tie event right then and there. I'd highly recommend this dress, just maybe wear a little something to cover your midsection if needed and you won't regret it.

Great gown with a modern edge!

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is about the details, which are lovely. I wore the size 8, which was a tad tight, but not uncomfortable. The 10 was far too big for me on top, though. This dress creates a sleek, striking silhouette. The fabric can be a tad scratchy inside the bodice, so a layer beneath is helpful, whether a long-line strapless or a higher waisted Spanx. The length was just about perfect. I had a 3-1/2" heeled sandal and you could just see my toes, but the slight fish-tail back was lovely.

Great Dress!!

Overall fit: True to Size

The dress was a good fit but the shoulder piece was to large. I had issues with it staying in place and the look just wasn't right. Sadly, I waa not able to wear it to my event.

Sophisticated chic!

Size worn: 10L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I think this dress is very chic. It's simple yet elegant. You can feel how well it is constructed as soon as you put it on. I am 5'5 and I wore 5 inch heels with a platform. The length was perfect with the long length. The only down sized was that the bodice was a little itchy. Not a problem if you were spanx with it. But it would be uncomfortable without it :) I would totally recommend this dress to anyone going to a back tie affair! Carolina Herrera knows how to make a beautiful gown!

Absolutely gorgeous gown!

Size worn: NONE
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I was hesitant to pick this dress because it looks like it has a lot of extra material that could be unflattering. However, this dress was amazing! It looked like a designer gown (which it is of course) and it is so unique. The material is very thick and the other reviewers are correct that it is itchy underneath. Unfortunately I didn't wear it because it was a little snug and it didn't have any stretch at all. It probably would have fit with spanx but I didn't want to wear spanx due to them being so uncomfortable. If you are thinking about this dress, get it! It's gorgeous in person! Oh and the long was perfect for my 5'7" height.

Loved the structure of this well made dress!

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
As others mention, this dress is scratchy so I would recommend you wear something between your skin and the dress. The bow was a little floppy but was an easy fix with double-sided fashion tape. I loved the structure of the fabric and corset. Not chiffon or jersey knit like most of the dresses out there. I styled it minimally with red lips and drop earrings and received compliments all night long. I am 5'6", 140 lbs and pear shaped. I was concerned that the sheath shape would not work with my hips but the 6R was perfect. Length was great with 2.5" heels. Can't wait for my next RTR experience!
