Beautiful gown!
This dress was absolutely gorgeous and my first choice for a formal event. However when I got the dress there were some snags in the lace that at the end of the day made me choose my other option. It was such a hard decision because this gown is really beautiful, even nicer on than in the pictures. It does run a little small--I am usually a 0/2 but this dress only fit in the 4. I still would recommend this gown!

Poor fit entirely
I wanted to love this dress but it fell short. It was SO short, I know I ordered petite but geez, I couldn't even wear flats without people seeing my feet. That has never happened before. I ordered a size up based on the other reviews and I still couldn't zip the darn thing up! Also, the material was very cheap. Not worth the price or the rental stress!

Weird stiching
This dress fit very weird very tight in the bust and a high waste that I found to be unflattering. There was some weird horizontal stitching across the bust that seemed to contradict the vertical lines.

Beautiful dress if you have the right shape for it
This dress did not look good on my pear shaped body, but it looked great on my friend who has a more long & straight build. It does run small, as other reviewers have mentioned, so be sure to order a size or two up. I usually wear a 6, and would have worn the 8 in this dress if I hadn't gone with my backup dress.

Pretty dress with zipper challenges
I was so excited to find a long dress that I loved in a petite size. The length was perfect with 2 1/2 inch heels and I loved the jersey fabric. I received several compliments on the dress. As mentioned in previous reviews, there is very little give in the bust and it is quite challenging to get zipped. There was an area where the fabric was starting to pull away from the zipper on the dress I had so it appeared other people had this issue as well. Because of this, there was a weird bowing of the fabric on the side that pressed into my side and was a bit uncomfortable--it was also noticeably jutting out in some photos.

Kind of blah...
I rented this dress as a back-up for another dress. Thank goodness the first one fit. I sized up, as per everyone's reviews, but I found the dress rather frumpy looking everywhere except my chest, which looked obscenely large in the tight lace top. The other issues was the static factor...the material seems flowy and nice, but clung to my legs. The length was actually perfect though!

Most elegant black gown
Beautiful dress! I'm usually a 2, but glad I got the 4P which fit fine. Gorgeous v-neck filled with lace and mesh. Love the long flow of the dress. Lots of compliments. One of my favorite pictures of all time is with this dress.

I was hoping this dress would fit but came way too long and slightly big up top but what a dress.
I really hoped this would fit but unfortunately it was way too long for someone my height and the problem with my body type is that I usually need a size 8 for my waist and hips but the top part could fit into an 6 so the top of the dress was loose and you need this to be fitted for the full effect otherwise it will look too matronly. It would suit someone who is taller or if they had it in a petite length it may fit more proportionately. I did go to the stylist showroom in NY and we went with the 10R because it was the only available size they has this weekend and it normally runs small. I gave the 2 stars because it was a beautiful dress but sad that it didn't work out.

All of the compliments I got all night on the dress :)
The zipper is kind of troublesome, as other people mentioned but other than that, it was perfect. It fit like a glove and I got compliments on it all night. It is definitely navy blue, not black. I actually liked it better navy blue. Definitely recommend. I got the 2L and 4P and I didn't even bother trying on the 2. The 4 was perfect and I think the 2 would have been too small.

Beautiful color!! It's actually a beautiful dark navy in person
I weigh about 95 lbs and was sure the 2R would fit, and was even worried it was be a little large. However the 4R fit me, it was of course a little long for me but it wasn't that big of a deal. It looked absolutely gorgeous on and is extremely flattering.

Classy, comfortable, and sublime
This was my backup dress, but I loved it too much not to wear. It runs small in the top area and I am normally a size 2 (but I do have wide hips). The size 2 fit fine in the bottom and back, but it was too tight in the chest to the point I couldn't zip it (without fear) once it hip my rib cage/breast area. So I wore the 4. I got tons of compliments and the back of the dress really is exquisite. I also loved how it was sexy with the cleavage without looking ostentatious. It was easy to dance in and had a great flow when walking. I wore around 3 inch heels, but it would have worked with 4 inches well too. The dress is actually a dark navy and super flattering in so many ways. You can even throw back a few drinks because it won't show in the dress with the way it is wrapped. I would 100% rent the gown again and highly recommend it!

Couldn't wear it because it was WAY too small, even in larger size than normal
Beautiful fabric, design and color - so was really disappointing to find that it was super small everywhere from the waist up (I literally couldn't zip it). Waist, chest, arm holes, and even neck were super small - thus the 2 stars. I would order at least 2-3 sizes up.

I couldn't even get this on because the top (neck, armholes) was so tight and small. The body fit perfect, but forget about the rest! This was my backup dress so it wasn't a huge deal- thankfully my first choice dress fit.

Beautiful dress...Runs REALLY small.
I usually wear a size 4, but even the size 6 was really hard to get on. The zipper buckles at the "cutout" because the lace is so much thinner than the thicker fabric above and below it... This makes you look like you have a large love handle just on one side! I'm not sure if the problem is that the dress just runs EXTREMELY small, or if the zipper was defective. I tried to get a size 8 sent to me but there were none available. Thankfully this was 2 days before my event and RTR was so helpful and overnighted me a different dress in time for the party. I really wish I could have worn this dress. Make sure you order up 2 sizes from your normal size!!!

Order a size up!
I can see what previous reviews meant by the top half running small- I was worried I would have to send the dress back. The key for me was the hook and eye clouser at the top of the zipper. I had to connect that before I could even attempt to get the dress on. After that hurdle everything was great! Despite the difficulty getting the dress to zip, it was very comfortable. I received a ton of compliments. I have long legs, so I ordered a 4L. Even with 4" heels it still touched the ground which I loved personally. Overall I'm happy with this rental, and would use RTR again for other occasions. If you are considering this dress, just make sure you order a size up!

Beautiful feel of the fabric, but runs small!
The gown is a beautiful quality - you can feel it in the fabric. It runs super small in the chest. I needed at least a 4 since it's cut very close. Comes all the way up to the neck, but very pretty detailing.

I was unable to wear this dress.
Unfortunately I was unable to wear this dress. I am typically a size 4 and was able to zip it up, but the zipper then bunched on the side and the length was not long enough. I was unable to order another size due to availability so tried the regular length. Pretty dress but just didn't work out for me.

The wedding was a black tie affair for two close friends of mine.
I was unable to wear the dress - due to availability I didn't get a second size and the 4L that I got was too small/tight. I was able to zip it, but had no "breathing room"; the zipper also buckled where the lace began ( mostly likely because it was too small). The dress is absolutely beautiful though, and I think had a 6 been available it would have fit just fine. Something else I noticed (and this may have been different had I had a size that fit me better), I don't like drawing attention to my hips and the fit of this dress made my hips look wider than they are, so if you don't like drawing attention to your hips (like me) just be aware it may do that and may not have been the best style for my body type.

Having options!
I ordered this dress as a back up and it was stunning! I didn't end up wearing it but wish I had another event so that I could. My normal size wasn't available so I sized up and it fit wonderfully. My only complaint would be the length. I'm 5'7 and the R was too short with any sized heels.

Really beautiful, a little small
This is without a doubt a beautiful gown! I made the mistake of not renting a size larger, but it was still wearable. Part of what makes it seem so small is that the neck and the armholes hit VERY high, but I kind of liked the look. The dress has a lot of give in general in the top area if you're small chested because the lace is kind of stretchy, but there is an area of the side zipper where there is literally NO give (where the thicker fabric comes together) so it makes it very hard to zip if you are putting on a size that's your "normal" size. I would recommend a size up from what you normally wear. I wore 2.5in heels and the gown was perfect length (just barely skimmed the floor). It is actually a midnight blue color in the light.

Received compliments all night :)
I wore this to a gala at my school, and my boyfriend was super impressed. He said that he nearly "fell over when [I] walked in!" After reading all the reviews, I ordered a size up and a back-up size two sizes up. I tried on my back up size first, and that definitely was the right fit. Make sure to order 2 sizes up! Also, if you are on the bustier side, I really don't recommend this gown. It was hard to zip up with a bra on, and I ended up just not wearing one (which was totally fine because this dress has better coverage than you'd think). The regular length was perfect for me (5'4") with a 3-4 inch heel. Overall, this is a very flattering dress for straight and narrows. I wore the suggested earrings, which were also beautiful.

Emmy Award Winning Dress!
I wore this dress to the New York Emmys last weekend. I was nominated for 3 Emmys and won 2 of them so this dress was my good luck charm, in addition to it being stunning!! It's simply elegant, classy and gorgeous! A quick word of advice, it does run tiny. If you're going to rent this dress, make sure you go up at least 2 sizes, or else the zipper will not go up. It's also pictured as black, but the dress is actually a dark navy. Either way, it's a winner!!

Too Small
Would recommend going one and two sizes up your regular dress size. For example, I'm regularly a four and I should've probably gotten a 6 and an 8…that's how tiny this dress is. Also, if you're anything above a C cup, rent this at your own risk! I am a D cup and could not get my size four to zip past where my bust started. Beautiful gown, gorgeous lace and detail, but definitely size up!!!

Dress is beautiful just not what I wanted
Fit: Dress definitely runs small. I wore a 6 (normally a size 4) and it fit well everywhere except the zipper was sticky. Pro: the dress is beautiful and is constructed very well Con: The dress had a very classy, older feel to me and that wasn't what I wanted for my senior prom. Would totally work for anyone ages 25-50 attending a formal affair though

Unforgettably small and strange
This dress runs very small. I usually wear an 8 in everything, but this 8 was way too small. Also, you can see in the picture that the model is slightly turned, which gives the wrong impression of this dress. The "x" pattern in the front of the dress hits you squarely in the hips, and emphasizes the hips. Thus, if you have any hips whatsoever, you will likely not like this dress. If you have no hips and you want something that gives you curves, go for this dress. Definitely order a size up. Also - for tall girls - I ordered the long size, and it was just barely long enough with flats. There is no way I could have worn this with heels. I did not end up wearing this dress at all.

Great lace back detail
Loved this dress online and the back of it was really cool. The zipper puffed out in a really weird way as you can see on the left side in the picture. Dress was ok, it made me look about 4 sizes bigger from the front. Glad I had a bridesmaid bouquet to cover it! I would size up when ordering. The size 2 I couldn't even zip up and I'm pretty small.
StarApril 20, 2014
Hello, I am looking at this dress for a red carpet event i will attend next month. I am 5'3" and 118lbs. Was the size 2 entirely too small? Also length wise, how tall were your heels? I dont want dress to drag on floor as I am so short
ShaeApril 20, 2014
Hi Star! I couldn't even get the 2 to zip up! I would size up for sure. I'm wearing cowboy boots so I had essentially no heel on. You'll be ok with some heel height, it was a little long on me but again I wasn't in heels. I would look at other dresses though for your event, I think this one had too many "quirks" about it. ( That zipper poof really annoyed me, you can see it puffing out in my picture)

I wanted to love it
The dress is more of a midnight blue-black than it black. I rented this as my first choice for a black tie wedding and wanted to love it but the holes for the arms were so tiny i couldn't even put the dress on all the way. The lace detail is beautiful, and it really is a beautiful dress, but I'd recommend going a size up, at least for a backup size, if you don't have stick thin arms.

This dress is way too small...
Gorgeous dress but you can tell that the sizes have been too small for many women. In both sizes there were small rips in the lace, probably due to the sizing issue. I did not come close to fitting into the 6 even though I've always worn a 4s in rental dresses. I really wish that this dress could be marked as runs small. I wish I could have worn it to my Senior Ball.

I wore the dress for Prom. It was nice to wear something elegant, different than most prom dresses.
As you can see from the pictures, the dress is dark navy, not black. In most lighting it looks black. Very comfortable, beautiful material. The 8 LONG just just touched the floor with a 3" heel. I am usually wear a size 4 or 6, depending on the style.

Didn't Wear :(
The dress itself is beautiful, but it runs SO SMALL. I can sometimes fit into a size 2, occasionally I wear a 4. But the 4 was still too tight, and I wasn't able to wear it. It's such a classy gown, though, so it would have been perfect for my formal event. However, RTR was super awesome and was able to get me a different gown overnight, and I still ended up with a great dress! RTR stylists are literally the best.

Too small
I rented this dress for a February black-tie wedding. It would have been perfect had it not been SO small. I'm 105 , 5'2 and I usually wear a size 00-0. I'm petite already have a small frame overall but i read the reviews to order up...so order up I did! I went with the 2R and couldn't even zip the dress... It seems like other girls had the same problem also, because when I received the dress it already had a damaged zipper. Would recommend order a size or two up for sure. Other than that the dress was absolutely stunning! I loved the sheer cut-outs and extra detail. Wish i could have worn this little gem! emphasis on 'little'.. ;)

The dress was beautiful, no doubt about it. However, the zipper was extremely stiff and it was impossible to zip up past my waist. I didn't get to wear it but I still loved it.

I still like the dress, but it was just a weird fit. It zipped up fine, but the zipper poked out on the side and made an awkward bubble. If I had a larger size it might have been better, but then I think the chest area would have been too big. Just not for my body type!

Awesome dress! Really nice quality and nice details. Was getting compliments on it all night!
Dress is actually a very dark blue (I thought it was black from the picture). fabric is thicker than it looks, more of a satin than chiffon, but still very flowy and easy. From the previous reviews I knew the dress ran small. I normally wear a zero so I thought that a 2 would be perfect; however, I found that the dress was definitely a little small for me (it was very tight in the upper rib cage). It luckily JUST fit me, but I would've liked to see the next size up. I wouldn't wear a bra with the dress since it would show through the lace, which was really pretty, but the front of the dress is nice and substantial so I didn't feel strange not wearing a bra. Length was just short enough for me wearing moderate 3" heels, but some people were tripping on my dress a bit.

This dress made my senior prom an unforgettable one.
I'm usually a 2 or a 4 for dresses, so I ordered a 4 and a 6 after reading the reviews to make sure one of the dresses I purchased would fit me, which was definitely a smart choice. There's no way a 2 would have fit me. The 4 was a bit tight, just around the neck a little and the armpits, but it fit better than the 6, which was too loose and didn't look as flattering. The dress is mostly constricting in the ribs/chest area so if you have smaller ribs/waist you can do a smaller size, but if you have a larger waist/ribs then stick with bigger sizes. The dress looked like it was made out of high quality material, and was very soft. It's a very dark navy blue, and it looked almost black in some of the photos. This of course helped as it made me appear slimmer. The way the top was made, there's no need to wear a bra, unless you are especially large-chested (I'm a small 34C). I was worried when I first put it on that the 4 would be too small because I couldn't zip it up myself, but once I had someone else do it, it was just fine. I'm 5'3" and I was worried about the length when reading the reviews, but I got the regular length for both of the sizes and wore 4 inch heels, and the length was absolutely perfect. It was just about the ground but didn't show any of the shoe. I did have to take off my heels towards the end of the night, but the dress didn't drag too much on the ground so it wasn't much of a problem. This dress is extremely fabulous, but I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone who doesn’t have a somewhat of a defined waist because that is what this dress highlights, while it makes your hips appear a bit bigger. Overall it’s a fabulous dress I would recommend to anyone!
