Dress looked like a tent. Did not wear. Thumbs down!
The dress was very shapeless, except for where it made me look about 4 months pregnant. Not flattering and I ended up wearing something I already had since it was too late to send it back and be able to get something new for the event. Disappointing!

this was a dreadful little thing …
no good if you're busty - it was so un flattering. that snap thing that everybody complained about was more than i could bear. went right back in the box. had to find something else to wear to my dad's memorial service. so disappointing.

Hit!
I was somewhat annoyed when I tried the dress on and the snapped belt would not stay and kept popping apart. I knew from reviews that this would happen, but once it happened with me, I realized that once that belt was loose, I was wearing a shapeless set of jersey material. Fast forward to the night of the event, having decided to make the most of the situation and not let my rental go to waste, I made sure that I fastened the belt to alleviate any worry of it coming loose and it made me feel more confident. I added some faux diamond accessories in the form or bracelets and a statement necklace and my best, best black leather Mary Jane heals and viola: mission accomplished. The fit on that night was amazing as the material layered in all the right places and it was just a very, very sophisticated look which is exactly what I wanted. I did not want a flashy look and didn't want to show too much skin as this was a work event and comfort was the optimal goal. It work and I got many compliments on the look. It was an unexpected dress and it made people notice. I am very pleased.

I use RTR all the time. They provide the best customer service and dresses are always on time!
This is a gorgeous dress but not for someone of my build (I'm 5'6" and 125 lbs). It completely swallowed me up.

Comfortable for a long sit-down event.
The dress was wonderful very pretty and quite comfortable to wear. The under dress section that snaps was a bit snug, but was still comfortable and didn't come undone the whole night. Runs a bit large.

ELEGANT (if you're standing at the right angle)
I wore this dress for a very important dinner meeting that I hosted in NYC. It was very elegant and when I greeted my colleague who I hadn't seen in a very long time, her jaw dropped and she said "Oh! You look so sophisticated!" While this was great -- there was a photographer at the event and every candid photo that was taken was so terrible. In one photo I looked like I was nine-months pregnant. In another photo, I looked like I was wearing a huge bag. I was so horrified when I saw the photos. I wear a 34D, and the belt that snaps under the dress was way too tight and kept unsnapping throughout the night. I love love love RTR but would never ever wear this dress again.

Great choice for formal affair.
I was the minister for my friends' wedding. This was the right dress for the occasion. I just had a baby and still suffering from baby pouch and muffin top. I loved the way this dress fit and how I was able to get away with not wearing any Spanx under it, very roomy and loose. The wedding was outdoors and carried on into the night. So, it was a great dress that transitioned from day to night, hid all the lumps and bumps, and was comfy.

Great conservative dress
I rented this for an event where I had to look formal but also be dressed modestly. This was perfect for that. People said I looked fabulous!

I received so many compliments on this dress.
I loved the fit of this dress, and I received a lot of compliments. I felt both glamorous and comfortable. I am considering renting it again for another upcomming wedding I am attending. I normally wear between a 4 and 6. In this dress, the 6 was a little loose. The 4 fit perfectly.

Hi, can you tell me how the leather belt works? Do you see it from the back of the dress? Thank you in advance.

Wonderful dress for hourglass
This dress was amazingly comfortable and I received a number of compliments on it. I ordered the 10/12, ended up wearing the 12, because the area that snaps together (what makes it fitted around the waist) kept coming unsnapped in the 10? They were both very roomy, honestly this dress would fit any size arms/hips etc the only area it wont give compromise in around the waist, the 12 was a bit loose but it stayed snapped so I ended up wearing it, side note I needed help putting it on, its a bit tricky!

Interesting style
The dress is VERY comfortable. I am normally a 12, but the 10 fit well, and I probably could have gone down to the 8. This has a very loose and flowy fit, and is not a typical cut or style you see on other dresses. I think there is a lot more material than it shows in the picture, but if you are lookign for something loose that you dont need spanx for this is your dress. Also note the back is a little bit longer than the front which you can't tell from this photo.

Friday Night at the Met
I loved the dress. It was very comfortable, especially since the majority of my night was spent sitting in a theater. However, I have a large bust and since that was the only part of the dress that was form fittng, I wish I had ordered a size up as my back up, instead of a size down. The closures are snaps, not hooks or buttons, and the snaps a couple times throughout the night came undone. When they were undone the dress looked more like a fancy sack then a couture dress.

Loved it!
Really liked this dress. It's very different but has a mondern look to it. Did run a bit on the large size. I typically wear an 8 but ordered a 6 & 4 after reading the reviews. Could have worn either but the 4 fit perfect and made the dress less frumpy.

Beautiful dress
This dress, I love. I got married in it at the courthouse in San Francisco. I had ordered a size two and a four since the Vena Cava dresses I had also rented were size four and a six. The size two was a little big, but fell really beautifully in the back. The batwing "pockets" under the arm give the most beautiful sillhouette when you place your hand on hip. I love this dress.
