It fit perfectly and made everything look good. I was extremely satisfied
It was a tight fit but a good tight, like I could breathe. It was a good length too

Tight and small but pretty color and style
Overall I was happy with this dress for the wedding I went to but I did have a few issues. My back up size got cancelled so it was either the 6R or nothing, I think I might have preferred the 8 but I can't say for sure since I didn't get to try it. Normally I would be a 4 or 6 in dresses so I do think this brand runs smaller than usual as others have said. I like to wear tall heels and this was a little on the shorter side for me and I had to wear short heels. I'm blonde and fair skinned so I was worried that the color would wash me out but I personally thought it still worked with my skin tone...I just had to brighten up the face with a bolder lipstick. It was really tight and to hide some flaws I had to wear spanx even though you could see where the waistband cinched in-that's another reason I would've preferred the 8 however the top was a little loose in the 6 and probably would've been too big with the 8. I can't remember if I wore a stick on bra or nothing, but you can't wear any normal type of bra with it. The bow in the back closure is cute but came undone quite often. Reading over my review makes it sound like a terrible choice, but somehow I still liked it and thought it was a pretty dress.

Beautiful fit and prefect light blush!
I wore this to be a bridesmaid! I wore the 2 but I wish I had gotten a 0 purely because of the length. I'm 108 lbs and it fit comfortably but not too tight - no bra needed! Definitely recommend this for bridesmaids but be careful - I think some girls have been altering the dresses and sending them back.

Fit like a glove, received tons of compliments! Loved this dress, wish I owned!
I ordered two, 0 and 2 (I'm 5'3" 106 pounds) went with the 2 as it allowed me to breath a little more. I didn't wear any underwear, as it was too form fitting. This dress got me so many compliments and was so comfortable, I would love to own it!

Nice, but SMALL!!!
Nice dress, however the color was a bit faded on the dress I received and looked like it had been dry cleaned heavily. The button on top to secure the bow straws no longer worked. I usually wear a size 4 and the size 6 even was SNUG. I barely had room to breathe! I would have ordered a size 8 to be really comfortable. I'm 135lbs, 5"6.

Perfect fit!
It fit so well and I got so many compliments! I got a 6L because I'm 5'7" and the heels I wore were about 3 inches. I loved wearing it in the winter because most people were wearing dark colors.

Beautiful dress
I am 5 months postpartum, so I still am getting my body back. It is a pretty unforgiving dress because of the light material and snug fit, but it is beautiful. I am 5'7.5" and 135 pounds and the 6R fit like a glove (I'm usually a size 4). I received a lot of compliments on it, but felt a little self conscious and like I needed to suck it in at times - which is not the dress' fault! Overall, I am glad I rented it.

Stood out in a sea of blue (and black).
This was my backup, husband insisted this was the one! With just a little rose gold earring and bracelet accent, this dress was perfect. Wear your hair up to show off the back. Compliments ALL night and on every photo we got. I only wish I ordered a petite as it is long, but this was my backup. I believe my heels were 3"

(Me on the left, wearing a size 8R.)
I had originally ordered my usual dress sizes, a 4 / 6. Although I could squeeze in the 6 it was extremely tight & uncomfortable for my body type. I ended up wearing the 8R borrowed from a friend who had an extra for our bridesmaid dresses. Still uncomfortable but wearable...VERY thick material in the summer heat. This dress will show your every curve. I wore flats with this dress & I am 5'8 & the dress still didn't touch the ground. I am about 145lbs, long legs with wide hips and a wide, short torso, & a 34B cup (wore petals with this dress). Overall was not impressed with my RTR experience at all.

Fits like a glove!
The overall body fit was amazing! Only thing I hated had to do with tying the bow in the back. I felt the bow once tied was too heavy for the clasp and button it needed to be attached to so it kept falling off the clasp.

This dress turns so many heads! I felt like a star at NASA's Centennial Gala.
I browsed through several dresses on this site and this one really caught my eye. I read through all of the reviews and looked through all the customer photos, and carefully selected size 6R and size 8R for my backup. I was worried that it would be too tight on my stomach (it's not flat) and not sit well on my curves, but when I tried on the 6R and it fit LIKE A GLOVE . It was even flattering over my stomach with no spanx! It has a little bit of stretch so that it remains fitted to your body, but you can still sit down and have dinner with no problem. Pros: The fit is classic and flattering. The color is gorgeous and would look great on any skin tone! Cons: The size 6R that I received did not come with a bow on the back. My backup size did, but it was sown on so I could not use it for the night. Other helpful details: I did not wear a bra with this dress - there's a panel in the dress that keeps the girls comfortable and secure. I also wore a 3.5 inch heel, which made the dress barely hit the floor. I received countless compliments on the dress and felt like I really stood out in a sea of dark-colored gowns. I felt so classy, beautiful and confident all night. I would definitely recommend anyone to rent this dress!

Perfect color- simple yet elegant
This dress was everything I was looking for as I was a bridesmaid in my friend's wedding. The dress was form fitting to show off my curves, yet had plenty of stretch to it so I was able to dance all night. I am a 36DD and it was definitely snug around the bust area. Looked fine from the front, but made it looks like I had a bit of back fat :/ Would definitely recommend this dress to others who are less busty!

Runs small- I usually wear a 2 but the 4 fit better. I'm 5'11" and definitely needed the long, and didn't wear heels. The back isn't pictured in this photo but it was my favorite part of the dress.

I felt so beautiful and confident. This dress had my boyfriends attention the entire time!
The dress fit perfectly, the cut was snug in the right places. Quality of the material has weight to it but breaths nicely. I had issues with the snap that keeps the bow up so I had to use a safety pin. I had both dresses pressed so I had a back up if anything happens such as a drink or food spill. I wear a backless/strapless bra, 3 1/2in heals. A lot of women said the dress fits small but I could have used a size smaller based on how form fitting the average dress is in the photos from other woman because the dress loses a little throughout the evening. I loved the dress!

Stunning fit
Dress ran small, but fit like a glove and was flattering in all the right places. Actually chose to wear the dress without the bow in the back, it was too much of a pain to make look 'perfect' and it honestly looked better without it!! Also worn with 3 inch heels and the length was perfect. It was also very comfortable for several hours. Got lots of compliments- highly recommend!!

great dress for my senior prom!
The dress runs a little small, normally Im a size 6 but the 8 fit beautifully! The dress was very comfortable and easy to dress in. The only problem was the clasp in the back kept coming undone but overall was a perfect dress.

Great quality dress but no bow....
This dress was awesome. I am 140 and 5'7 and the 6R was perfect. I loved the fit and the cut. It was a little tight but it was still really comfortable! The only downside to it was that the bow in the picture didn't come with the dress. This was my back up dress but I wore it instead! Definitely very classy for a military function!

Fit like a glove
My daughter wore this to prom. She was stunning! This dress is fitted snug through the hips, not for big booties. The length was perfect for her 5'9" height. She did not wear a bra. It is lined and the material has no stretch.

I had my heart set on this dress
I ordered this dress a size up as suggested in other reviews. I rented a size 6 without a back up size, so I was a little worried about it fitting but it was perfect for my big bottom! I am a little smaller in the waist so in the photo you can see the fabric bunch up a little, but it didn't bother me enough to not wear it. I am 5'4 so this dress was on the longer side, so wearing 3" heels was a requirement.

The back is fantastic, and the simplicity of the dress helps to accentuate the person wearing it.
The fit was definitely snug, but it was great for my body type (curvy)

Perfect for Desert Engagement Pics
Loved this dress! Super flattering and classy. The color is a very soft pink/ blush. I wore it for engagement pics and then we went to a fancy date night dinner afterwards because why not!? Got so many compliments! Only negative was that the button to hold the bow on the back was broken so my fiancée used a safety pin to secure it. Fabric doesn't have much stretch so I wore the bigger size so it fit on my hips, which made it a smidge big in the chest. First world problems. Overall great dress.

Fairytale
I rented this dress for my surprise courthouse wedding. Wedding planning was stressing me out to the max, so we decided to ditch everyone and their expectations and do a surprise courthouse wedding. We hired a photographer and made an appointment. We bought nothing and rented everything and the dress was the perfect touch. I am tall and it still touched the floor. It added the perfect touch of elegance needed to make my courthouse wedding the best day ever.

This dress was worn for our formal portion of our engagement photos. It worked perfectly!
The fit was great and hugged me in all the right places. The dress material is not very breathable so I would not recommend this dress for an outdoor midday event in the summer. This is a dress I would rent again and recommend to others.

Pretty In Pink
I felt so glamorous in this dress! The fit is tight, as others have said. The front hem was shorter than the lining, but not by much. There was also a small smudge on the front of the dress that looked to be an old stain not entirely removed. I'm 5'10" and wore 3" heels and the length was spot on.

Elegant!
This dress is beautiful and I received many compliments throughout the night! The hook/clasp at the top for the bow was a little tricky. Pretty much every time I moved the clasp would undo, but the hooks stayed in place so it wasn't that bad or noticeable during the night. Overall the fit was great, it was a little tight in the rib cage area. I'm 5'4" and wore about 3-4 in heels and the dress came perfectly to the floor. It was easy to dance and move in.

Thank goodness for backups! The original dress didn't fit and was all wrong. But this simple number is everything! It's perfect for a classic elegant look. I wore 4 inch heels and was able to dance the night away with no problems. I would rent this dress again!

This dress was amazing! I received many complements all night!
This dress ran a little tight, which is why I elected to get a size larger, than what I typically wear. I felt more comfortable, especially since I was not able to wear a bra. The cut made my chest look normal, which was another concern I had with this dress.

Love this dress!
Fit perfectly got so many compliments. The fabric doesn't have a lot of give but fits like a glove and is so flattering. Did not wear a bra just petals and fabric was thick enough to conceal. Would most definitely rent again! ( 5'10 and 134 lbs.) the long was plenty long enough and I wore only a small heel
