Nice back up...didn't wear it.
This was my back up so I didn't end up wearing it. I normally wear a 10 to 8. The 8 was a little tight but it worked because the fabric is stretchy. I saw that most reviews said the dress ran big but I didn't think it did. I do think this is dress that needs to wear a little on the tight side. I don't think it would look good baggy or too big. The fabric is a bit more textured then you can see in the picture which made it a little odd for me. I didn't particularly love it and probably wouldn't rent it again. When I tried it on I didn't think it was very flattering on my body type. Perhaps if I had better undergarments to really create an hour glass silhouette it would have looked better. I'm curvy but in an odd way. However, a friend of mine rented it a few months back and I though it looked GREAT on her. She has small waist but good hips, a great classic hourglass figure, fuller bust and is fairly short. She looked FAB!!! hope this helps!

LOVED MY EXPERIENCE WITH RTR!! WILL DEFINITELY DO IT AGAIN!
The delivery was perfect. I tried it on and it looked BEAUTIFUL. The dress was so gorgeous, I barely needed any accessories. Everyone told me I was the best dressed at the wedding :) I literally got compliments ALL night and the next day and by the bride herself after she got back from her honeymoon! The dress really does make you look great no matter what your body shape... the pictures don't even do it justice! :D

I wore this dress while winning two Awards for a film I co-produced. I felt like a golden girl!
I am 5'4, about 124 pounds. This dress fit true to size and the fabric had a little stretch to mold to my shape. It's very comfortable and I wore 2 to 3 inch heels. I was fine walking around in this dress so it wasn't too long. I recommend this dress to anyone.

I wore this dress to my husband's military ball and I loved it! I got a ton of compliments.
It was very light and easy to wear. It fit perfectly. My favorite part of the dress was the embelishment on the shoulder. It was beautiful.

Looks great Katie. One question - were you tripping over the length? I am just under 5'9" and a size 2. Not sure if I should go with Long or Regular length. Was it a problem for you?

The fact that I was able to get 2 dresses in case one didn't fit, was really incredible.
The fit was absolutely perfect. It did run a little long, but 5 inch heels did the trick. The dress was beautiful and I got compliments all night. Color was perfect, not too much overly done. Very satisfied

Pretty Dress.
Pretty dress, stretch is forgiving so if you are between sizes you can probably go smaller. Ordered this as my back up and wore my first choice but have worn the shorter version with lots of compliments.

I wore this gown for my son's wedding and I couldn't believe how comfortable it was.
I normally wear a 6-8 and the 6 fit perfectly. Due to other reviews, I chose the regular length but ordered the hem tape just if case. I am 5'7" and with 2" heels, the length was fine. I would definately order again from RTR.

...Married the love of my life in this sparkler and felt like a Queen!
I wore this dress for my outdoor Summer wedding. It was beautiful. Though it arrived with a small opening along the seam in the back, I wore it--as it was a "time crunch". The length of the dress was way too long! It dragged. Nonetheless, I felt regal in it. And it glistened in the bright sunlight! Overall: Runs large, too long, tear at the back seam, forgiving, sparkly, lightweight material, easy to wear.

I probably could have worn a 4, but the size was great, the color and I like how it comes dry cleaned and ready to wear.

gorgeous gown but didn't end up wearing it as the size ran too large on me.
This is a beautiful gown, but runs large. I didn't end up wearing this dress because it was a bit long on me and I didn't have any fashion tape on hand to do a quick hem.

Beautiful dress, looked great for the occasion (Charity Gala)!
Loved the dress, I felt that it ran a little big. I rented a 2R and a 4R and I might have been better off with a 0R instead of the 4R. The length was perfect so that I only had to wear about 2 inch heels (I'm 5'5"). Overall, I loved the dress, it's more glittery in person.

LOVE THIS DRESS
This was my backup dress from RTR and I ended up wearing this to a formal event. The picture does not do this dress justice, it is more sliver than gold in tone. It is beautiful, so flattering and comfortable. I will rent this dress again. Received compliments all night and no one else had anything close to the quality of this dress. It does run LONG. I had on very high heels and it still fell to the floor.

Beautiful cut and color but WAY TOO LONG (even in Regular)
Beautiful dress but WAY TOO LONG. The regular size (which I've worn in other dresses by this designer) was easily 5-6 inches too long. I am 5'5'' and could not wear even my highest heels to save this dress. Very disappointed because I love the fit and color otherwise! No petite available in this dress either.

The zipper was broken when the dress arrived, so I was not able to wear this dress.
The zipper was stuck/broken when the dress arrived. I wasn't even able to try on the dress. It was very pretty, but I cannot speak to the overall fit. I was very disappointed because it is a very pretty dress.

This dress was a perfect fit!
I wear between a 6 and 8 pants and the 6L fit perfectly! I did wear flats and it was a tad too long, but not long enough to cause issues. The color and material were great and matched perfectly with my ivory pearls.

I looked chic and beautiful!
the dress does run a size large. i normally wear a 4 but i'm glad i ordered a 2 because it fit much better. also the regular was good for my height with a 2 inch heel. it was chic, form fitted and beautiful. in the picture it looks like a nude but it's actually gold with a silver overlay. so it looks more silver than anything.

Very Elegant
This dress was perfect for my little sister's sweet 16's. It felt stretchy and I was able to dance the night away. This dress is great for full figured women like myself while still making you look and feel stunning! The only Con I had was that the first dress I received was dirty but I called RTR and they helped me out immediately and corrected the issue, with a friendly demeanor!

Beautiful!
I wore this to a Black Tie wedding and it was amazing. I was worried that it would be too short since I am 6'1 but it fit perfectly and I could still wear little kitten heels. Strangely, I ordered both teh size 6 and 8 and the six seemed to run longer than the 8. The dress is very flattering and I got a lot of compliments the entire night. My favorite part was that it was very comfortable even when I was dancing. Overall it was perfect and I would definitely order it again.

Great backup!
I ordered this as a backup to the dream gown I really wanted, because RTR only had one size available (of the dream gown.) This was stunning on, and I looked like a million bucks in it, but I was thrilled to find that the favorite gown fit perfectly. I gave the keynote address at a gala in the Washington DC area, and was so grateful to know about RTR! I'll definitely keep coming back for more!

Hi Chrissie! I am a busty girl myself and was wondering if you were able to zip and dress and wear it comfortably?
RTR CustomerJanuary 14, 2013
Hi! You should not have a problem wearing this dress comfortably as long as you size up for back-up! There is enough room in the chest and this dress has a decent amount of stretch to it!

Belle of the ball! SO many compliments!!
This dress was even more beautiful in person! I rented it for my husband's military ball and it was perfect for the occasion! It was true to size and the Long was perfect with my 3 in heels. I ordered the 8L and the 10R and the 8 was perfect. I chose not to wear a necklace... thought it would be too much with the neckline. I have definite hips and a long torso and the fit was perfect and the ruching accentuated my curves. Like others have said, this was so hard to put in the mailbox the next day!! If you rent this dress you will not be sorry! I received SO many compliments and felt like I was on the red carpet.

Amazing 1st RTR experience
I wore this dress for a medical school gala. I did not at all feel overdressed. I had a difficult time deciding which second size to order, but after a little discussion with the stylist and seeing what sizes were available for my dates I went with an 8R. I never even needed to try it on. I wore spanx with this dress but it was more for personal comfort as it was a dinner/drinking/dancing event and I didn't want to have to worry about it at all. However, the dress fit really well and the material is quite flattering. I wore blue suede stilletos and absolutely loved the pop of color with this dress. For jewelery I went with simple silver hoops and a basic silver bracelet. The color of this dress is closer to champagne than gold. The girl in the picture wearing the Badgley Mischka is wearing a gold dress and you can obviously see the difference in color here. The long sizes are long! I am 5'9" and wore 3.5-4" heels and the dress still dragged a bit so if you don't want to wear heals don't get the long dress even if you're tall! Luckily for me, my boyfriend couldn't make it to this event so any size heels were completely acceptable. I strongly reccomend this dress and RTR!

I felt like the belle of the ball and all eyes were on me!
This dress was absolutely amazing. I was hesitant based on other reviews. But here we go. 1) As you can see, I'm only 5'2. I wore 2 inch heels. LADIES just buy some removable fabric tape and tada! Length is gone. I just made the dress skim the floor. 2) I usually wear a 10, I went with size 8. Material is super stretchy and very forgiving. I did also wear some spanx's just to make it SUPER smooth. Can I also say very comfortable! 3) This dress is a shimmery gold, And has a super cute beading detail on the shoulder. 4) This dress could be rented for pretty much anything! I plan on renting from this designer again! Thanks RTR for everything you do! I honestly can say this will always be a great memory for me!

honestly it's not beautiful in person like it was online.
The chest area is very baggy, the material seems cheap (very thin) I'm 5'5, I usually get the longer sizes in dresses but after reading reviews I decided to get a 2R, terrible mistake it's to short in the front, so heels are totally out of the question. I felt like a child playing dress up in my mothers clothes because of the way it fit. Very dissapointing.

Got compliments all night!
This dress is absolutely beautiful and very, very comfortable! I wore it to a black tie wedding and got compliments all night, even from the bride! The 8R was too short to wear with heels and the 6L was a little long with 4 inch heels but it was doable. I had a great experience with RTR as the first dress I got on Thursday night was dirty at the bottom, I called and they had a 2nd dress in the same size sent to my hotel before I even got there on Friday afternoon! Couldn't ask for better customer service!

This dress was a great fit and I would wear it again.
I normally wear an 8 or 6 and the 6 was a perfect fit. Take the comments on length seriously. I am 5'7 and with platform, high heeled shoes, this dress still hit the ground. I did a lot of lifting of the dress. Though it is close fitting, because it has a little scrunching, it was very flattering even after eating dinner. If I had a chance to buy it, I would.

Looking like a Bond-girl at a 007-themed party!
I ordered both a 6 and an 8, and I ended up wearing the 6. It fit comfortably, which was surprising since I normally have to go up a size in formals due to my broad shoulders. The normal length was just about right with 5" heels, though the back caught on my heels a couple times. The gathering at the side was very flattering and allowed for multiple trips to the hors d'oeuvres table ;). Finding shoes and earrings to match was easy--I just added more bling with the accessories! The second picture shows me with the other girls in the group. We all used RTR so we could look absolutely fabulous for the party. This was my first RTR experience, and I will definitely do it again when I get the chance!

I felt like a movie star!
This gown is gorgeous! It accentuated my waist and the ruching hid my tummy well. The color is much richer in person, and although I am pale, the gold tone did not wash me out. My only complaint is about me - not the dress - as it was a bit too long for my 5'2" self. I wore my highest heels and held it up a bit to walk, which worked out fine. I honestly have never gotten so many compliments in my life!

Great!
This was my second time renting a dress here and both times I ended up with a David M. Because of the comments I read about length, I did not order the long. The dress fit perfectly and was incredibly comfortable. It's forgiving, too, so it would have "stretched" over a lot if necessary. The only thing I was a little disappointed about was the length. The back of the dress touched the floor and hung nicely, but the front was a tad bit shorter than I would have liked and exposed more of my shoes than I would have liked. With low heels, it wasn't a big deal, but another inch of length would have been perfect in the front. This dress "reads" more gold than silver, but jewelry and shoes either way work well.

SOOOOOOOO comfortable and form flattering!!!
I got complements in this dress ALL NIGHT LONG. It's stretchy which is why I said runs large depending on the look you want if you want it too hug your curves more than go with the smaller size. I rented a 4R and 6R and wore the 4R, but could have gotten away with wearing a 2R. I am short and wore 3 inch heels so it was still a tad bit too long, but nothing dramatic. I love this dress and would DEFINITELY rent it again.
