Cinderella dress
I didn't end up wearing this dress and went with my backup option, but it was very pretty. It's flattering and reminds me of Cinderella. I just didn't love it as much as my other choice. Flattering on a larger bust, forgiving in hip area.

Fit great and was a beautiful dress.
I am 5'5" and the dress was short with 2" heels. I would have rented the long if I had known.

The dress arrived in a timely manner and looked great!
I didn't end up wearing this dress due to the bottom being extremely wrinkly, it's very strange. The dress is very tight in the torso, but I also went a size down. Otherwise, the dress looks very nice!

Was worn by my bridesmaid and was of really great quality. The color was spectacular!
5'7'' with heels was probably all this dress could handle, even in a long. The hem and sems were hard to get to lay as they should and we steamed them quite a bit (likely do to the use that the dress sees).

Didn't wear this dress, as it was too short.
I wanted to love this dress, but it ended up being too short. It barely hit the ground standing in my bare feet. The fit is wonderful though and I would've worn it had it been about 3 inches longer.

I wore this when I joined my daughter at the 2015 Emmy's. I felt like I fit right in!
Beautiful color and fabric. I ordered the 4R because the 4R in a similar dress was very small. I normally wear a 2. I'm small but average chest size and it was REALLY big in the chest, but fit well otherwise. Ideally I would have had it altered. Note that the length was just a tad on the long size and this is a regular size.

Amazing! Could not even begin to describe how beautiful this dress is!
The dress fit like a glove and I honestly have no negative things to say about it. The entire experience was smooth and the fact that they give you two different sizes is incredible and really helps take the stress out of buying/renting online. I felt like a princess and got more compliments than I can say. If you are hesitating please don't! This dress will change the way you look at going to formal affairs :)

This dress was the perfect fit, color and feel for my engagement photos! My fiance loved it too!
This dress fit like a glove. It was almost as if it was made for me. My photographer loved that I chose this dress because it photographed so well. I ordered a size 6 and an 8 - I honestly didn't feel a huge difference among the two sizes. The dress is a little heavier so not a good choice for super hot summer days. I wouldn't add much jewelry or accessories to it. It's beautiful on its' own. I'm confident I'll still be happy with my dress choice when I look back at these photos many years from now. Thank you, RTR!

The compliments I received wearing this dress were so amazing.
The dress is absolutely magnificent. Felt like a true Princess all night long. I usually wear a size 4 but wore the 6 instead. The bust area is tight. I am a 34C and the 6 was a much better fit.

This was a great dress to wear to a black tie wedding. It's comfortable and flattering.
I usually wear a size 4 or 6 but had to wear an 8 in this dress. It's a little low cut but still classy. I'm top heavy and appreciated that it was flattering in that respect. I loved wearing it and got a ton of compliments- it made me feel like a Disney princess!

This dress is most definitely the Cinderella gown! I had so much funning twirling in it at prom!
This dress is the most beautiful gown I have ever worn! It is simple, elegant, and is sure to give you a beautiful shape. It also works really well for girls with larger boobs. My only complaint is that is heave so you might not want to wear it it to a summer event.

Wonderful dress. Princess-like.
I'm average height and build and would say that if anything this ran a little long in the torso but definitely needed the length (wore 5 inch heels). The material is very wearable/comfortable. Holds you right in - no bra necessary (even for a 34D). I got TONS of compliments. The tulip skirt of the gown was very fun and full.

I got called Cinderella like 10 times that night, which was funny and kind of sweet.
It was a lovely spring color, and the perfect length (in the Long) for me (5'9"). There was a bit more cleavage than I expected, especially when I was sitting down.. It was almost a bit too much for the event I was at, but it looked beautiful when I was standing. It arrived a little wrinkly, and I couldn't get them fully out at the bottom, so you might want to have it steamed. I would say embrace the Cinderella theme (especially if you are blonde) and just have fun with the costuming of it.

It was a great scholarship gala.
Ordered the 6L and 4L. I'm 5'6" and was planning to wear 4 inch heels. The 6L was too long, but fit perfectly in the bust (32DDD) and waist (27"). The 4L was the right length but was too tight pretty much everywhere. If I'd ordered the 6R I'm sure it would have been perfect. Chose to have RTR send me a different dress altogether though. Overall it was a beautiful dress and would have been perfect for the black-tie gala I attended.

This was a backup dress that I didn't end up wearing.
The size zero fit loosely but it was still wearable. I'm stick straight so the dress really had no curves to show off. It's very heavy and beautiful quality but it wasn't anything special.

The color and fabric were beautiful! I felt like a princess!
I usually wear a 4, but the 2R was perfect. The bodice should be closely fitted to your body. Gel petals are needed, since you can't really wear a bra. I wore 3.5" heels and am 5'3.5" tall and the length was great. It grazed the floor. It was so nice to stand out in a sea of dark colors. I got tons of compliments! I rented the jewelry, too. Truly, this dress will make you feel like a princess. Only downside was that due to the nature of the fabric, it arrived with creases. You could take it to the cleaners to steam, and voila!

Stylist Review!
This gown made me feel like Cinderella! I love the color and overall fit. It runs true to size, but I would go a size down especially if you are smaller in the bust (it's meant to be pretty fitted throughout the bodice and midsection). The v-neckline cuts pretty low so you need to go bra-less or wear a NuBra with this style. At 5'7" the regular length was a bit short on me with heels. If you want this gown to hit the floor definitely order a long if you are 5'7" or taller (including heels). Overall an elegant and classy gown.
