Not for Tall, even the Long
This dress is very classy, very sweet and very comfortable. Unfortunately the 2 long size just hits the ground in bare feet. I'm 5'9". The 4 L was a bit better. If I were a 6 or 8 the length would have been perfect!

Pretty dress. Slight green tone to lace.
I liked this dress quite a bit but didn't love the green shimmer to the lace on the bodice. I normally wear a 14 but both the 14 & 16 fit and looked nice, so I opted for the extra room. The length was fine with flats but would not have worked with a heel. I am quite buxom & the cleavage that shows through the lace is significant.

The dress was beautiful
I wore this to a black-tie gala. I ended up wearing the bigger of the 2 sizes I ordered because it fit snug around the waist. The detailing in the lace is a green color. The dress overall was beautiful and I got several compliments.

My boyfriend was blown away by how gorgeous I looked :)
I usually wear a size 4 and this dress fit just right. I wore 3" heels with this dress and that seemed prefect for the length. The dress didn't drag at all and flowed beautifully when I walked. The upper had more of a green iridescent color than gold. No cons that I can think of! Lots of compliments on the dress and I felt beautiful wearing it. Looking forward to my next rental!!

I love the fit and how flattering it was. Lots of compliments all night and super comfy.
It is flattering and it runs small. I use size 12R and it was snug and the zipper was hard to work. My husband had to help me. Overall, it is flattering and comfortable. Once again, RTR was a success and I'm looking forward to the next.

Fabulous dress
I rented this dress for a friend's black tie wedding. This was my first time using RTR and it was a great experience. This dress is perfect for a formal affair! It was super flattering and easy to wear. I am curvy and don't like having to fidget or fuss with tight, strappy gowns. I will definitely be using RTR in the future, and may even rent this same gown again!

Back-up dress was perfect!
I originally ordered another dress for this gala, but it couldn't be shipped at the last minute. This was one of the three that RTR sent me as back-ups. They did such an excellent job selecting a dress- I think I even liked this better than my first pick! The cut was perfect and would probably be flattering on any body type. I especially liked how the lace top and cap sleeves made it look classy, and not gaudy or stuffy. It was a little long, but I am only 5'2ish. I wore 2-3 inch heels and was careful where I stepped. I would absolutely rent this dress again!

Nonstop compliments
I wore this gown to a black-tie wedding. This is a fitted dress with no stretch. I normally wear size 8/10 pants and a medium top. The 10p was very tight across my 36D chest. The 12p was absolutely a perfect fit. I am 155lb and 5f2. Many of the reviews said that at 5ft 2i regular length seemed too short but with my 28 inch inseam the petite length was absolutely perfect even wearing 2 inch heels did not seem short at all. The only con was my chest was definitely exposed and I had major cleavage. I didn't mind but my husband didn't care for me to display them. Lol.

I had ordered another dress that didn't fit. When I called to request a replacement I had no idea what I wanted. Crystal was an absolute life saver and found this dress for me. I got tons of compliments and felt gorgeous all night!

Black Tie Wedding
I rented two dresses. I received one that was damaged and one that was the wringer size. I called and worked with a girl who was very helpful, as I was very panicked, and she suggested this dress. It fit beautifully and was super comfy! I would suggest it to anyone! I am an 8 or a 10, I have broad shoulders so we went with the 10, it fit perfect.

I felt beautiful and comfortable at the same time!
I felt so beautiful (and skinny!) in this gown! I originally rented a different dress but unfortunately neither size worked on my body. I was about to go shopping to buy a gown when I thought I'd see what my options were from RTR. Customer service was great and told me I could have any available gown overnighted. I chose this one and was so happy I did! I purposely went for a flowy sillouhette to make sure it fit and because we were in the middle of a heat wave. This dress was a perfect fit! I did not have any issues with the zipper at all so it must have been fixed. I found it hard to wear a bra with it but it was tight enough to go bra less, something I never do as a 38D. But I was so comfortable and was able to dance the night away feeling fabulous!

Adorable, a little tight
The zipper sticks and I needed both my mom and dad to help zip this up, and once on, it was a little hard to breathe. It's so cute and I was only wearing it to a wedding ceremony, changing for the reception. I souls recommend this but maybe size up if you have a large chest

Great dress, lots of compliments
Dress was really pretty, I ordered the 4 and the 6 and ended up wearing the 6 only because there is a non-stretchy ribbon dividing the top and bottom and it was too tight on the 4 ( even though the bust fit better in the 4). Because of this I'd recommend getting one size up for your back up if you know you have a wide rib cage. Other than that, very flattering on a pear shape. The back of the dress had a wide opening at the mesh part that shows your back.

Lovely. Elegant. Comfortable. Conservative.
Loved the fit and the colorful overlay. Perfect for black tie work function. Flattering fit. I'm 5-8 and wore kitten heels. Anything higher and I would have needed the long.

Beautiful dress!
The dress fit pretty true to size, maybe just a little tight in the bust area. I am 6'0 and the length was great- almost to the floor (however, I did wear a small heel). It was a little wrinkled at the bottom- maybe from shipping- but I loved it otherwise and received several compliments & I felt beautiful!

Fine dress
Pretty, simple dress. The lace color was more green than gold, but it was subtle. Overall, fine dress, not sure if it was anything to write home about or stand out in, but it did the trick for this fall wedding.

Tight in the rib cage!
Beautiful dress but I would love if there was some give around the rib cage. The black under layer also rides low for the sweetheart neckline if you don't have a large bust (I'm a small B). The back draping is gorgeous along with the cap sleeves to hide any arm insecurities.

Little details
I loved this dress for a black tie gala. The lace at the top has flecks of gold and green shimmer that stood out and gave it a little bit of pop. The dress runs small. I am normally a 2 (sometimes a 4). But after reading the reviews I ordered a 4. The original dress came and I was unable to zip it up, so RTR shipped me the next size up overnight. The 6 fit perfect. It was so comfortable. I highly recommended!!!

The dress was very comfortable and flowy! I did wear a strapless bra so the straps did not take away from the beautiful top this dress has. Love it!

It was a little tight in the bust for 34D. But the next size up would have been too baggy all over.

AMAZING prom dress!!!
I absolutely loved wearing this dress. I received so many compliments at prom. It was definitely unique and super easy to move around in!! It runs just a little small, so I would recommend going a size up with your 2nd free size!

Tight waistline
This dress was my second option and was not worn due to the fit. I read the previous reviews and can agree that the waistline is tight and doesn't have any elasticity to the band. I did think the dress was really pretty in person.

Comfortable and flowy
This dress was really easy to wear. It was flowy and fun. I ordered the 10r and the 8l. I wore the 8l but it was a little bit too long, so i just wore higher heels. I didnt have any trouble with the zippers, as so many people in the reviews said they did. The sleeves were a little bit tight, but not too bad. Due to the lace in the top part, I wore a strapless bra. The part where the lace stops and the opaque, non-see-through lace begins was lower than I anticipated, but the 10l was even lower. Altogether it was a fun night at prom. I got a lot of compliments and I felt really good wearing this dress.

Pretty dress, had to go up a size
I liked the dress but I had to size up solely due to the waist band - I do sometimes have a little trouble with my waist because I'm more straight and narrow than curvy at the waist but the size up almost didn't fit either! Just something to be aware of if you sometimes have issues at the waist in dresses. Overall though, I liked the dress.

Queenly with a fun swishy skirt
This was my backup dress so I didn't actually wear it to the event. I did try it on and I felt like a queen. It's conservative but playful and feminine. I definitely would've felt confident wearing this option if my first choice had not been absolutely breathtaking. (Theia - Black Cover of Darkness Gown)

I was stopped on the street by three strangers to get complimented! I felt GREAT!
It's a great dress. My zipper was fine.. I would have liked a 14 but 12 is biggest in this dress.. There is NO give at the middle... But it is a high quality gown and it looks fine even if a little tight... I could not lift my arms well to dance because the sleeves do not have any stretch. The length was perfect for me with 2.5-3 inch heels... No problem! I did not like wearing a strapless bra.. But I have never before been stopped on the street like this!! Three times.. Complete strangers stopped to compliment me.. One was a young girl.. I think she thought u was a movie star. Wear Gold with this.. The moonstone necklace was not a great fit.. It is more silver actually than gold.. Order up the necklace in the model for it!!

Amazing customer service! This dress was a back up and I'm so glad I had it! Love RTR!
Dress was gorgeous! Got so many compliments. I had no issues getting it on or off for that matter. My only comment would be that it's a long dress. I am 5'8 and it was on just hitting the floor with almost 3 inch heals. I loved this dress and how it made me feel. I will definitely use RTR again !

First RTR experience. Dress showed up as scheduled. Great experience!
This was a very nice dress. I actually chose this one as a backup dress and in case my first choice didn't fit! It fit also, so I wore it out to dinner. It isn't terribly formal. It was comfortable. True to size. I am 5'6" and I chose the long because I was going to wear 3 inch heels. I had to hold it up. Wish I would have chosen the regular length. Other than that, nice dress for a semi-formal occasion. I got a few compliments on it!

Beautiful dress but too damaged to wear
I loved this dress! The 2R fit beautifully and it was the perfect choice for a fundraising gala I was attending. The problem? The zipper was stuck and my husband couldn't zip up the back after several minutes of pulling. I was worried I wouldn't be able to get the dress off because the zipper was so jammed. I also found a hole near the right sleeve and a few smaller holes around the zipper. Even if I had been able to get into the dress, I couldn't have worn it due to the holes. I might try this rental again in the future because the dress is so pretty, but I was disappointed that this didn't work out.

No give in the lace area! I rented this for a gala and was unable to wear it due to my poor judgement in ordering size wise. ;) RTR was awesome about sending me a replacement/backup the day before.

Such a fun dress and lots of compliments!
I actually didn't have nearly the issue with the zipper that I've been reading horror stories about. I got it zipped up all by myself! I had a friend button the top button, though. I ordered a 4R and 6R and ended up going with the 4R. The 6R fit a little more comfortably in the waste (the band is pretty tight) but the fabric between my chest and waste was loose and it made it look big. So, I sucked it up and went with a little tighter waste. It really only bothered me while I was sitting down. The long flow of the dress made is so comfortable to dance in. The only sad part was that the arm holes were tight enough to not allow me to raise my hands during songs that required them being raised! The arm holes were tight just resting my arms, though, so if you don't have plans to raise your arms you should be good. Overall I absolutely loved it and would certainly net it again if the opportunity presented itself!
