Beautiful but with some issues....

This dress I was so excited about and it looks even more beautiful in person. I am 5'7, 32C and 124 lbs. I ordered a size 2 and size 4. The size 2 fit beautifully but there was no way the zipper was getting past the ribbon waist and then unfortunately the size 4 one of the straps was barely holding on by a thread. The dress looked very high quality though and I did like the built in padding so braless would be an option! On the plus side, RTR Customer Service is great and is currently sending a different dress as a backup for my event. I called today and will be receiving it tomorrow so thumbs up for that!!

Gorgeous and Flattering!

Wore this for a black and white party - it was PERFECT!!! Oh so flattering and the details are exquisite. As other people mentioned the zipper was tricky. Once it I was able to zip it once (which was a struggle) it seemed to "break in." Highly recommend!!

My favorite dress I've rented!

The dress fit like a glove. True to size. I have an hour glass shape and the dress hugged in all the right places. The only complaint was the zipper. It took a bit to zip up the dress properly.

My backup

I'm not the skinniest but thought this dress was really flattering. Agree with the other reviews that the zipper is tough. This was my backup but I woukd have been happy to wear it.

Show stopper

Okay, completely obsessed with this dress. I desperately want this in my closet and was so sad sending it back. Rented for a wedding and got tons of compliments. Length hit around the ankle (I'm 5'7") and fabric was gorgeous. Straps are adjustable. Zipper wasn't bad if you turned the dress and zipped it more from the front, then rotated it back around. Lower cut without being super revealing. Slip underneath was a good length too. Very comfortable, easy to move and sit in.

Beautiful dress, but the zipper is stressful!

I felt great wearing this dress! The lace is beautiful, and felt very glamorous. I love how the straps are adjustable and there was already padding in the chest. I didn't need to wear a bra but did use a nu bra to create some cleavage. The waist is very fitted, but dress overall is very comfortable. It was longer, but I am pretty short so I expected that. Reading the reviews I knew the zipper was going to be a hassle so I gave myself like an hour to be safe lol and I'm SO GLAD I did. It took my husband and I 15 minutes to figure out the best method. I recommend turning the dress so zipper is in the front and making sure the sides are turned a little inward and pull down at the base while zipping up. I'm taking off a star for the zipper and because part of the white lace appliqué attached to the strap was completely detached when I received it. Nothing that a little fashion tape can temporarily fix, but this should have been fixed to begin with.

Gorgeous!

This dress was stunning. Very unique with the lace and it fit true to size. I would recommend it for a taller girl (I'm 5'8) and it worked well with higher heels.

Fabulous dress! Compliments all night!

I received so many compliments on this dress. It was perfect for my brother in laws beach wedding! The fit is true to size. Its long; designed for average and tall body types. No give, so if more than a large C cup, it may not fit well. Like others have mentioned, the zipper can be tough getting past the waist seam.

I got so many compliments all night long.

The dress was snug on top and a little tight on bottom but over all very comfy. The zipper was a little tricky but the dress was high quality material.

While the dress was very pretty; I couldn’t wear it due to a stubborn zipper!

Perfect dress

Stunning dress. The picture does this dress no justice. I am very large chested, just having two babies and it fit perfectly. I will be renting this one again. I would buy it if i can.

Wanted to love it!

I wore this for New Years and overall loved the fit of the dress and felt really great in it. I had some HUGE problems with the zipper as others have mentioned so beware! I wore one size up because I found it gave me a bit more room to move and dance throughout the night. The rib cage was a big snug on my usual size. I think the dress is beautiful and would have been perfect minus the logistical issues...

It's perfect.

Sexy and sophisticated. I, too, had trouble with the zipper. I traveled alone but was able to zip up on my own. I twisted the dress forward...zipped up...twisted back. The straps are adjustable and I did not need a bra. I didn't even try the other dress on because I loved this so much. The length is perfect. I do not care for dresses above the knee. I felt beautiful!

Unable to zip up

It's a beautiful dress but I was unable to wear it since I was not able to zip it up around my breast area. I suppose I could have tried harder to get the zipper up but I didn’t want to ruin the dress.

Lace, lace, laccceeeee!

This dress is stunning. The lace detail is amazing and I loved the looser fitting bottom. I just had a baby 3 months ago and as a breastfeeding mother, this dress did everything I needed for my "girls". Beware of the zipper- not easy to get up regardless of how loose the dress is on you.

I would have kept it and bought it if the zipper wasnt so worn out. I wore it to my parents 50th. I got so many compliments and felt great in it. Super flattering.

Beautiful dress, but...

I wore the size 4 bc the 6 was too big on top. The 4 however was not very comfortable, there is no give or stretch in the ribbon around the waist. The 6 also looked dingy and the lace was coming off of the shoulder strap. Both dresses were nearly impossible to zip. It took my husband and I 30 minutes and a pair of pliers to finally get the zipper up. Both sizes were clearly very worn out...

Beautiful dress-but did not wear.....

This dress was prettier in person than even the pictures can show. BUT..... unfortunately I could not wear it. I tried it on a few days prior to my event, my Husband and I tried to get it zipped for 30 miniutes. It was so stiff we were both literally sweating!! It would not come up over the waistband..... thankfully RTR was so wonderful about sending me a replacement overnight to our hotel. Great dress, but beware of the zipper. The struggle is real!!

Favorite dress of all time

I almost cried sending this dress back. I loved the form-fitting top and the not-so-tight bottom. The lace and the shape of the dress are perfect. I felt amazing in this dress, even though my boyfriend and I both ripped open our fingers trying to zip it up; the zipper is so tricky (just like everyone warned) but if you sort of twist it and suck in really well then it finally zips!

Beautiful dress! High quality fabric and very classy.

I was concerned it might be a little too long after reading all the reviews... but the hem fell just above my ankles and still looked good. The bust was a little snug and the zipper was a pain, but this dress was an overall win! side note... there is no give to this dress so I sized up for comfort.

I received so many compliments the entire night!

I absolutely loved this dress. It fit great and was extremely flattering. I received compliments from multiple people throughout the night and really wish I could have kept this dress in my closet. The only problem was it was really difficult to zip. It took a couple people holding the fabric together to get it zipped because of how the zipper is sewn in.

So many compliments! Amazing engagement party!

This dress is stunning!! I wore it for my engagment party and I felt so gorgeous all night long! I got so many compliments! The fit was perfect - it was forgiving around my hips/butt (my largest area) and very easy to be in for 6+ hours! It has a padded top that won't provide support but allowed me to go bra-less and not have to worry about "showing the cold". Also, the straps are adjustable! Over all this is a very flattering, comfortable dress that will definitely make you feel like a star!!

So beautiful!

I wish I could have worn it. I am usually a size 4, but this dress ran a little small. They didn't have a 6 for me to select as my second sizzle, otherwise I would have rocked this dress. Love the material and look. Maybe next time'

The dress is gorgeous! I got so many compliments on it. Overall very comfortable!

The fit was good but getting in and out of it was so stressful because of the zipper. It was ridiculously hard to zip up this dress as well as unzip it and I actually had room to spare. I had to have help or there would have been no way. I was able to wear it without a bra so that was a plus. I gave it 4 stars because of the faulty zipper.

Perfect rehearsal dinner dress

I wore this for my rehearsal dinner and it was absolutely gorgeous. I saw the all white version of this dress at BHDLN which cost $800. I loved this black/white version for 1/8 of the cost! It was about ankle length on me since i'm only 5'1, but it was so pretty and a great fit. Got tons of compliments and felt really special for my big day.

We eloped in Europe, but had a reception party in October. I wore this dress to our party.

This dress is very comfortable and I got a lot of compliments. I felt sexy, but classy. You don't need to wear a bra with it, which is nice. I read the reviews about the zipper, and I did have to get my husband to help me. I had a size 10 & a 12. The 12 was way too big. I LOVED this dress, and it was perfect for my reception party.

Fun dress

Loved the dress. Definitely longer than I expected it hit just above my ankles and I'm tall. The zipper also got stuck, but the dress had plenty of room to zip, so I'm not sure why that was happening. Additionally, the white lace on on the top right shoulder was coming off of the strap. Minor things, overall loved the dress and was great for an afternoon wedding!

More forgiving than my other rentals, and tons of compliments. Loved this dress! It was a bit small for me so I sized up. I was by myself and couldn't get the zipper up, but after some help it finally zipped all the way up... phew!

Compliments all night!

I have rented from RTR a bunch of times and this has definitely been my favorite dress so far. The 6 wasn't available but the 8 fit perfectly fine as well. The top has a bit of padding so I didn't have to wear a bra which was great! The adjustable straps were great also! I would highly recommend this dress to anyone looking to stand out in a crowd!

Beautiful dress!! My favorite rental so far

Great dress! Great length for me at 5'8". Ran a little big around the waist but wasn't too snug on my hips or butt. The straps aren't as classy as the dress, they're a little skimpy but the lace is beautiful. 10/10 recommend!

Gorgeous, flattering dress.

This is a beautiful dress. If you are pear shaped, size for your hips. I typically wear a six in dresses but couldn't zip up the six. The 8 fit perfectly (sized to my hips) and I wore a padded strapless bra to fill out the top.
