It was a stunning dress. It felt great to walk in. Lots of compliments.
The torso was cut large. I used safety pins to make sure the top didn't hang too low.

This was my backup dress, but clearly it was first place and took center stage!
I managed a gala for the non-profit I work at and was only floating through the crowd minimally, but received so many compliments on this dress. I felt so glamorous as the kudos just kept coming! I'm so glad I rented instead of just grabbing yet another cocktail dress off the rack. Felt like I was floating. Make sure you're in heels, though, lots of folds. Thanks for making me a show-stopper, RTR!

I got a ton of compliments all night! Flattering and elegant!
I got a ton of compliments all night! This dress is very flattering and one of the few dresses good for shorter gals due to the slit. I am 5'2", wore 4 inch heels and the dress just barely skimmed the floor. I loved that I could wear a strapless bra with this dress too. I would recommend this dress hands down!

Wore this to a black tie wedding and it was a huge hit!
Not my typical style but I'm so glad I took a risk and got this dress. It was modest yet sexy and flowed beautifully. I'm 5'4" and it was perfect with 3 inch heels. Have a large bust and it fit perfectly. Love this dress and would rent it again!

I absolutely loved this dress, it is gorgeous and I received compliments all night!
Read the reviews on this dress, they are definitely helpful! I picked this one because of others' comments that it was roomy in the bust. That is no exaggeration - in the 12P I had extra room up top (and I NEVER have extra room up top. On the other hand, the waist runs a bit small. I am usually smaller on the bottom than on the top and in this dress I worried the 12 would be too big but in fact it was perfect. It wasn't strangling me all night. So if you are smaller on the top you may not want to pick this dress as you'll need to go up in sizes to make the waist fit comfortably, and then you'll find the top is too big. I also appreciated others' comments who recommended double-sided tape to affix the ruffle detail at the shoulder for maximum effect. Without the tape, it can just flop closed and you lose that nice eye-catching detail. The fabric is lightweight silk (or at least a decent imitation thereof), it feels lovely on your skin. You'll feel like a Hollywood movie star from the 1940s! Definitely recommend this dress.

This dress is beautiful and slimming. Gorgeous line. Super comfortable and easy to navigate. Slightly big on top but worked very well with strapless bra and double sided tape.

Bond themed company Christmas Party
Rented this dress for my Bond themed company Christmas Party. All the material was conservative enough for my company party; the slit was nice but not too high.

Fit perfect! I wore 4 inch heels and the length was perfect. I used fashion tape to keep front drape in the right position.

I felt so beautiful in this classic dress! I received many compliments at a "red carpet" gala.
Although I have a small body frame, the regular fit perfectly! I couldn't have been more pleased with this soft-style dress. The folds of the dress are obviously staged to look structured on the model image, but the material description online matched my expectations exactly. It's very flowy and classic, & feels like a red carpet dress. It looks great with a full up-do and brilliant earrings. I wore it with 3.5" stilettos, which was great for my height. I recommend that if you rent this dress, you stick to a classic, simple look for accessories, shoes, etc.

I wore this to a black tie fall wedding and it was definitely unique and lovely. I have a little waist but wider hips and tummy and this dress was very flattering where I wanted it and forgiving where I needed it.

Perfect for a formal wedding...comfortable to eat, drink and dance! Tight around the waist, I was able to skip a bra. I'm 5'8" and I do wish this came in lengths. In bare feet, it touched the floor, but was a touch short in heels. Gorgeous when walking...just a great, elegant, easy dress.

Subpar quality and ill-fitting
This was my 4th time renting from RTR, a service I love and will continue to give my business to. I rented the size 2 and was advised to size down to 0 for my back-up. The latter was impossible to zip. The size 2 was snug and had no give around the waist, which would have been ok, but the bodice was very loose and I would have had to use tape/pins to ensure my bra didn't show. Comfort is important to me, and given that I would be moving around all night, I didn't want to be fidgeting with the dress. I used RTR's chat feature to voice my concern to one of the stylists who was very understanding and even offered to overnight another option. This one didn't work out, but I am definitely looking forward to my next rental!

Awesome, fun dress!!!
Great dress for a formal affair. Fit was great, only had to use fashion tape on the shoulder to keep the white part showing. I wore 4 1/2 inch heels and the dress length was perfect. The slit is great while dancing! Definitely recommend this dress!

Gorgeous dress!
Overall, the dress fit really well. I'm 5'8" and wore 4" heels without any issues on the length of the regular. The only complaint I have - similar to other reviews - the band around the rib cage is tight. I wouldn't recommend going up a size because of this though, as it fit well everywhere else.

Didn't wear it.
This was a back up dress for another gown. I really liked the soft fabric. The one shoulder style didn't do it for me. The dress is light and too long for me even with 3-1/2 inch heels.

Beautiful, flowy dress - perfect for a formal summer wedding!
This dress fit great - with just a bit of extra space and was super comfortable. Having a very small frame, I was pleasantly surprised that a dress without stretchy fabric was able to fit me! The material is very soft and light weight - it blew beautifully in the wind. I felt almost angelic! The white band at the waistline gave great shape and the dress fell nicely on my body. Even though it is black, it felt like my shape was still there - perfect! I would highly recommend :)

I wore this to a boat party and got so many compliments! The material, the fit, contrasting colors!
I loved the material! When the wind blew it was so light and made me feel gorgeous. The way the white contrasted and complimented the black dress made me stand out. Matched perfectly with my dates outfit and we definitely stole the show. Great fit- zipper stuck a little but I was able to get it right. I suggest wearing a strapless girdle or undergarment to make sure your dress has a smooth foundation. It's form fitting and fabulous.

Too short
If you are taller than 5'3" and plan on wearing heels higher than 4" this dress will be too short for you. I am 5'8" and the dress was just long enough barefoot. With shoes it looked like I borrowed my shorter sister's/BFF's dress. Otherwise it was fine a decent choice for shorter girls.

The dress was perfect for a "Bond Girl" outfit.
It was light and fee flowing (great for Texas heat and humidity). It was glamorous and sexy with enough leg to catch a glimpse of the concealed weapon tucked into my garter. Just right for a Jame Bond 007 Ball!

Perfect for my Casino Royale event!
This dress was super comfortable and made me feel so elegant. The slit is showed just enough leg while also showing off my shoes when I walked. The only con is that the white part of the dress is not as white in the picture, it is more of a cream color. I wore 4 inch heels, which made the dress the perfect length.

First rental from RTR and it definitely won't be my last!
I wore this dress to a black tie wedding and it was perfect for the occasion. I was hoping to wear the 0 petite, which was perfect up top and in length, but the white band in the fabric has no elasticity -- it fell right on my rib cage and I could not breathe in the 0. I ended up picking the larger size and using fashion tape to adjust the top which was a bit big. Overall it was fantastic.

Dress looks awesome when you walk bc of the fabric / drape. Can look a bit frumpy in still pictures.
Needed to pin dress to bra so it wouldn't slide. Otherwise, it fit great, catches the wind as you walk and makes an awesome statement.

Needed to be steamed really carefully otherwise the top looks messy. Also fits tight around the waist but lose around the chest.

I received lots of compliments. It really complimented my figure
I found this dress to run large in order to achieve the desired look. If you go a size smaller be mindful that the dress runs narrow in the waist. This was my 1st RTR. I will definitely use again!

Unfortunately it didn't work...
This is one of the many dresses that I ordered to see what would work for a ball that I had to go to. Judging by some of the comments I thought maybe a 6 would work because I am usually between a 6 and an 8, it fit fine in the hips and waist but it was too small just under my bust so I couldn't even get it zipped up. It's a pretty dress but not as pretty as the picture makes it look. I don't think I would have chosen it even if it did fit.

Glamorous and sophisticated!
The fabric is soft and it fits like a dream. Side zippers are sometimes difficult for me to wear because I have a broad back but I got this one up. The dress is very slimming. I could wear the 6 but if you are busty like me (34DD) you may want to go up a size just for more movement around your ribcage.

Beauty & Comfort
Wore this in a wedding. Elegant, comfortable, exactly what I needed. Fabric is light. am small chested so somewhat big in around armpit area, but not enough that it was a problem or noticeable. Recommend. Just note the flare part doesn't stand up like does no the model -- lays over, but still pretty.

I had the most beautiful, original dress at the event. Very classy!
The dress was gorgeous. It arrived with a few stray threads and a rough hem, but still gorgeous. I winged it with this dress because no backup was available, but it did fit. The band around the waist was a tad snug, but it did zip. The zipper is tricky like other reviewers stated. I wore about 4 inch heels and the dress was about 3/4 inch off the ground. I did use fashion tape to keep the top down. I should've also used it to keep the white part down so it would show in photo's. All in all, I think the dress was gorgeous. The only thing I wish was that the slit was a tiny bit higher as it didn't show any leg in photos that I wasn't posing for. It's gorgeous, classy, and just the right about of sexy.

This dress is amazing. It was incredibly flattering and the way it moved when I walked was perfect.
I'm more of an apple shape and this dress hid my tummy and emphasized my arms and legs. I'm 5"5" and it was the perfect length with a pair of 2 inch heels.

Black and white ball
I went a size up bc my hubs and babysitter couldn't zip the zero. The two was a little big in the boobs and around the arm but it stayed on fine and I didn't have to play w it all night. The white waist band goes around your rib cage and is snug - hence a size up. Good if you have boobs. I have none and wore a strapless padded bra. The material is very light weight, like jersey. Good for summer despite the black color. Loves the leg slit. The inside of the dress is white - cool.

I wore this gown for a formal " Quinceañera" which is equivalent to a sweet 16 in America.
The dress fit perfectly, I'm a petite person(5'2) so I wore it with a 4" heel and the length of the dress was good. The zipper on the side was a bit though to pull up, but not that hard after it's half way up. Overall the dress was lovely, easy to walk around with, and looks and feels sexy as you walk and the opening on the front starts to flow!

I got several compliments throughout the night.
The dress was very pretty but I was a bit surprised at how thin the material was. I thought it would be a bit fuller based off the photo shown. Both the 6 and 8 fit but the 8 was a bit loose. I'm 5'9, 158 lbs and busty. I was a little worried about zipping it up on the side but just took my time getting it up.

I am planning on ordering a 6 and 8, like you, I usually wear a 6, but weigh the same as you and am 5'5", and the listing recommends to order one size smaller as the back up... looks like you ordered one size up as your back up and ended up wearing the 6, would you have ordered the 6 and 4 if you had it to do over?

Show stopper indeed!
I am a size 6, but the ban at the waist was slightly tight when I tried it on, so I went with the 8. I went up a size because I knew I would be eating, drinking and sitting for a while and I didn't want to be the "pretty girl that looks like she's in pain from her dress". The ruffle detail on the dress is not STIFF as you would assume from the picture. The material throughout the dress is soft, but it does not blow in the wind while you walk. Perhaps it was just me that wanted that dramatic detail/look. ;) I give the dress 5 stars! ENJOY

beautiful dress
This was my backup dress for a gala event. The dress was stunning and the right length for being as tall at I am. The reason that I didn't wear the dress to my event is that the top was slightly big on me and I didn't want to be worrying about it throughout the night. The side without the shoulder just had some extra material, so it would probably have worked better on someone with a slightly bigger chest. If I would have sized down I think the waist would have been a little tight. But this is a striking dress, very comfortable. The waist is a little smaller considering the top but that may just be on me.
