The architectural neckline of this dress really makes it stand out!

The 8 and 10 both fit, but the bottom half draped more nicely in the 10. I'm 5'6", and the regular length was perfect with 4" heels. Others have complained about the zipper. Both zipped just fine, but the 8 was more stubborn than the 10. Perfect for a pear shaped woman as the synched-in waist really highlights that area, and the bottom has room to breathe. While it is long, it isn't over the top, which was nice because very few people go all-out for black tie weddings these days. It felt like a happy medium between a cocktail dress and a formal ball gown. Definitely recommend it! Friends commented that I was "best dressed!"

Great dress, received a lot of compliments. Not too showy, but still very elegant

There was not much of a difference in size between the 4L and 6L. I could have worn either one, but the 6L had a bit more breathing room in the waist. I'm 5'9, and was able to wear a 2.5inch heel and the dress still covered my feet!

First RTR experience and the entire process was smooth from start to finish!

Gorgeous dress. It would normally fit true to size but the part at the waist is a little more snug that you'd expect.

Love the cool bag that RTR sends you.. It felt like something Kanye would send to Kim!

This was a good dress overall, but you need a statement necklace with it to keep it from looking like a bridesmaids dress. I think this particular dress may be ready to retire, as the zipper was worn down looking and there was a little rip at the base of the zipper. It was a comfortable dress and overall fit well, but I need to add a bunch of accessories for it to really come alive.

When one of my friends commented that I looked like a model at a Red Carpet Event!

Perfect fit! The gown was gorgeous and was very comfortable. It is really modest and the cut of the bodice flattering. I received complements all night. It made me feel like a model.

A classy black tie wedding in Dallas led me to pick this dress!

So I couldn't bring myself to take a picture in the dress. I usually wear either a 0 or 2. It came in a 2, and was a little too wrinkled. After steaming and hanging, it did get a little better. The dress was entirely too large though. I would warn against this style of dress if you are a slim/boxy frame. This dress is made to accentuate curves--and it looks great on folks with a little hip action. :)

Very flattering dress, great for special occasions

I wore the dress for an event at an art gallery and it was perfect. The dress was very comfortable and flattering. I loved that it allowed me to keep the jewelry minimal (I just went with medium sized, dark blue studs and a simple braclet). The 12 was slightly big but I needed the L so that I could wear heels. Overall, I would definitely recommend this dress.

This dress was super big. It was like a shower curtain. I didn't like anything about it. The fabric is thick and heavy.

Pretty dress, just the fit was a little off.

The material, manufacturing, and overall quality of the dress is great. The only downside to the quality was that the zipper was really hard to use (I almost couldn't zip up the dress even on the hanger because the zipper needed oiling). As far as the fit, I am 6'0" tall, so sometimes clothing isn't always cut for my body style. In this case, I felt like the waist was too high (the pink band strapped across the bottom of my rib cage as opposed to my waist - couldn't take deep breaths), so that made my hips look larger than they should've. Also, the dress for me did not touch the ground, but it hit in a good place right by my ankles so it looked fine. I loved the color and it was a nice dress to stand out from the crowd in, I just wish it had a fit me better.

If you're small chested, size down. If you're of average height, wear tall shoes!

I rented this for a formal church wedding with a country club reception. I usually am a size 6 or 8 (at least in the Badgley Mischka dresses I've rented) since I need to accommodate my curvy hips and backside. For this dress I rented a 6 and a 4 and the 4 worked great with my small chest (34 B, 25 1/2" waist) and the skirt portion was very forgiving to my lower half. This dress comes in at your natural waist. I'm long waisted, and the dress hit right where I wanted it to. I'm not sure if short waisted gals might have a problem? I'm a smidge above 5'5 and wore 4 1/2 heals which left the bottom of the dress just barely above the floor. I really loved the way this dress fit and I was happy with the rental.

I have a broad ribcage/shoulders and could not get the 12 to zip all the way up :( Ended up returning the dress and wearing something from my closet

Would have been pretty if it fit

The dress was too long for my 5ft height and in the picture the bottom looks hot pink but when i got the dress it was a burgundy red. i ended up not wearing it because the zipper wouldn't go past the bunched up where the black and the red meet in the middle. i am usually a size 8 but there wasn't much extra fabric for me to grab to get the invisible zipper up.

Looked subtle and yet unique

I picked the 6R based on other suggestions that this dress runs a bit small and it fit well. It was long enough that I could wear 2 inch heels and it still looked good.

Nice dress, but not enough sizzle for me.

This dress ran smaller than other David Meisters I have worn. I would have worn a size up from my typical dress size. I could have worn this, and would have added sparkly jewelry if so, but it didn't have enough wow factor for me and looked better on the model than me.

Some fantastic food, speakers, and of course, wine!

I was hoping, as a 6'2 tall and curvy woman, that the 8L dress would fit--unfortunately, it only hit my ankles, even without heels on! I love this dress, but probably won't rent a floor-length dress again! I ended up having to go out and buy a dress that would fit my tall frame (which I then returned after the event).

Easy, elegant look.

This dress is beautiful and has a flattering fit. Got lots of compliments! I am very tall, and the long fell to my ankles - you could completely see my shoes/feet wearing heels, which was fine but would have liked it a bit longer. One thing to note, I had to wear a strapless bra because the strap cuts in further than I expected so a regular bra strap would show.

this gown was perfect loved the color and how it cut me by the waist for a more slimming effect

im a size 10 sometimes an 8 but the 8 was to small, 5'"4 inches tall. the gown fit perfectly. had to wear high heals for the length. its a perfect dress for someone whose skinniest area is their waist

Did not wear it. Not special enough.

Fit was as described however not very flattering. Doesn't nearly give you the waist look that shows on this model --- does not cinch the waist as you would like, it would have been comfortable and I would have worn if in a pinch.

Comfortable, flattering, glamorous

Loved wearing this dress. Perfect draping on the full-ish skirt which complemented by shape and made it fun to walk in with heels -- I wore 3.5" and my toes just peeked out when walking but the dress didn't touch the ground at any point -- any higher I think would have made the dress look too short. Great dress for lady looking to highlight her arms and upper body.

I received so many compliments on this dress and how it fit.

I ordered this dress in a 4L - it was the absolute perfect length! I wore completely flat sandals with it and it just skimmed the ground. The 4R would've been too short. The dress hugged my body perfectly, not too tight anywhere. Made my waist look super tiny.

Elegant & fun.

It fit true to size. The zipper on this particular dress was a bit sticky, but nothing unmanageable. This was the emergency replacement dress, due to a poor fit on my original choice; yet this pick worked out! The dress was comfortable both sitting and while dancing. I am only 5 feet tall and had 5 inch heels on, and the dress was still long (about two inches on the floor). I did know the dress was going to be long on me, since there was no petite option (and I needed a dress shipped out stat!).

Loved this dress! The material is nice and thick, which made it lay nice. It ran a little small on me, but that might be because I'm 2 months pregnant. Loved the way the shoulders are cut.

Classy & Easy

This was my first time ordering from RTR and absolutely loved it! The two dresses I received (6L and 4L) were both the perfect length (I'm 5'10") but I ended up wearing the 4L to my formal afternoon wedding. It was comfortable and I received a ton of compliments on it all night long! If you're on the fence of what sizes to get, I'd recommend going down a size for this particular dress. Other random pieces of advice: wear a strapless bra; plan on wearing flats if you're 5'10'' or taller or it might look short; the zippers on both dresses were very sticky so be gentle :) Overall, I loved it and will definitely rent again!

This dress drapes beautifully, but still has a cinched waist to show off your figure!

This dress was the back-up dress since my original choice was "returned damaged beyond repair," but I was actually happier with this choice! I love the color blocking which makes this more interesting than just a mono-colored dress. The magenta wasn't too "loud" to be distracting, but still caught your eye. I wore this for a formal Navy event and it was hard picking the size because I vary from 0-4 depending on the company and cut. I have a smaller waist, but broader shoulders and a bigger bust (32 DD). To give you an idea, typically, I wear a 0 for work/pencil skirts and 2 for non-zip up dresses, but since this zips all the way up the 4 fit nicely. I wore nipple stickies instead of a bra since the top part was already fitted because of my bust. I also wore 3 inch heels which was perfect because the dress fell just above floor length, but I still held on to it when I walked because I didn't want to damage it! Very comfortable material and didn't have any problems! Would definitely recommend!

ZIPPER HAZARD

LOVED this dress. Got it for my mother to wear to a black tie wedding. However, we could not get the zipper to work at all. The fabric is so bunched in the middle that where the zipper catches there is too much material to get it up. Couldn't wear it. Beautiful Dress though. Maybe sizing up will help but then the dress might be big on you.

Felt glamorous in this gown.

Great fit and very comfortable. The dress was a good match for the black tie affair. Very good to sit, eat and dance, which I did plenty if. The dress was a little long, so I would wear a nice 4" heel with it (I am 5'7). So happy with this rental.

Gorgeous, elegant AND comfortable!

I wore this for a black tie wedding. It fit perfectly, however, the zipper was a little difficult to get up at the point where the fabrics meet. I'm 5'8" and wore 3" heels, and the dress hit just above the floor. While I typically like longs dresses to hit the floor, I was very pleased with the overall fit and look of the dress!!

Amazing. Favorite RTR dress so far.

Loved this dress. Fit was great. Very comfortable. Was a little tight on the ribs but not to bad. I'm 5'9 and I ordered the long but couldn't really wear heels because it wasn't long enough.

I got great reviews from others and it is an elegant, classy dress for any formal event

The fit is great but too long if you are petitie so it requires some type of hemming or tie up.

I loved this dress! Supper classy and elegant

Loved this dress! It fit beautifully too! Endless compliments from the audience, friends and family. Wore it during my Ballet Academy's production of The Nutcracker. Was just a little long in the front at first, ( I am 5'4), but wore really high heels that evening, and it wasn't a problem. Would buy this dress in a heart beat! The color was just beautiful.
