Did not wear
This dress has the strangest fit. There were so many patches with no fabric that do not lay right on me, had I worn the dress, would have been able to see underboob and my whole butt. I don't even know what body type this dress would suit

didn't end up wearing
this dress is beautiful, really! the pictures do not do it justice. it's made for someone with a small waistline but decent sized shoulders and top half. honestly an hourglass girls dream. however, the slit on this dress was unreasonable. it went from being an elegant gown to looking like I had two loin cloths in the front and back - basically the slit went so high that it passed my butt and didn't cover anything. I wish the slit was stiched down about six more inches.

Tricky Fit
It's a gorgeous dress in a gorgeous color, but the fit is definitely hit or miss. There are about 4 inches of zipper on the back of the dress, which isn't enough to create the snug fit pictured on the model unless the dress fits you perfectly. When the dress didn't work, RTR overnighted me another style of my choice in their usual fabulous display of customer service. If you're ordering the dress, I'd say size down and make sure you have a viable backup.

I wore this dress to the Tony Awards & had celebrities on the red carpet asking me about my dress!!
I felt like the belle of the ball at the Tony Awards in this dress. Everyone took my picture and I got so many compliments on it. Pros - the color and fabric are stunning and photographed so well. The cut of the dress was very slimming and fit true to size on the bottom half of the dress for a size 2. Cons - I would have given this dress 5 stars, but the fit on the top half was huge! I'm only a B cup so if your boobs are bigger it may work out okay for you. But you'll notice in the picture I had to twist the straps and there was still a lot of gapping.

So sexy! Beautiful dress!
Loved the dress, but harder for me to pull off since I'm 34DD. Couldn't wear a bra so used a tape bra which of course didn't give me the lift you'd like. I'm usually in between a 6 and 8 and ordered both but went with the 6.

Beautiful dress, but had to "MacGyver" it...
The dress was beautiful, but HUGE, especially on top. I'm usually a true size 4 & a 34C, but the top on this was huge. I called RTR about a size 2, but it wasn't available. I was determined to wear it, so while I stood infront of the mirror about to Hollywood tape it to death, instead I simply twisted the straps. Voila! The dress ended up looking even BETTER than the original design! It also made the back into a deeper & more open V, which was more flattering I think. I'm 5'6" & wore 5 in. heels, & the length of the 4L was perfect. Definitely a sexy dress, but in a very tasteful way. I got endless compliments all night! (P.S. The side slits are high, so be careful when sitting down.)

So many compliments! A rare find
I definitely needed a 2L- i wore the 4L since they didnt have a 2. Gorgeous dress. A little frustrating to deal with undergarments
