Elegant gown!

I rented this dress for a formal event. This was my very first experience using RTR, and I could not be more pleased! I received lots of compliments on this dress. The fabric was a bit heavy, and the dress does run long in the back, but with heels, it barely skimmed the floor. Loved this dress!

Beautiful shape and elegant fabric

I loved this dress. The fabric is a black lace (hard to tell from the pics) and can feel a bit heavy. But it is gorgeous. Loved the hi-low hem on the dress. The top is like a corset and can feel a bit binding after a long night. Also, the bust was a little tight for me. This dress does not have pockets but looks like it could.

Elegant modern black tie gown

Form fitting and flattering dress. The fabric is a thick beautiful jacquard fabric that is great at sucking you in on top and around the middle, but does make for a quite voluminous skirt, be warned. I was able to wear a regular strapless bra with this dress, needed to fill in slightly large cups in the halter. I have a larger rib cage for my size so felt it ran small there but overall was fairly true to size for a formal gown. In bright sunlight this looked more navy than black, which didn't bother me, but may be a deal breaker for some. I felt fresh and fashionable in this dress without having to wear a flirty cutout number. It was the perfect middle ground for a 30-something in the midst of young socialites and older glamorous ladies. Definitely recommend!

Compliments all night!!! Super comfortable

I'm 5'4" ish and appx 150 lbs, rented the size 8 and it fit like a glove! It was absolutely perfect! A word of caution though from my own experience and reading others reviews is bra size. I'm a 34C from VS and I don't think this dress would have fit a larger size up top. Def. base your size choice from your top because below your true waist doesn't matter because of the gowns style. It is a heavy fabric, but super comfortable to wear. No weird adjusting all night! All I had to do all night was stand back and get compliments. I wore this to a black tie gala and it was spot on. Fancy, gorgeous, classy. I even got my picture taken for a local magazine! Not over dressed, not under dressed- perfect. It is a bit long in the back though, and the high low isn't as dramatic in the front as it seems on the model.

Perfect dress for black tie wedding

Loved this dress! I'm smaller in the chest so this fit perfectly, but if you have a bigger bust, you probably need to order a size up

Fit weird

The halter neckline was too long for me and it is not adjustable. While it fit my waist and made it look tiny it also totally smushed my boobs. Also the fabric is VERY heavy. I really wanted this one to work but this dress was not meant for me...

Beautiful Dress!

This dress was great! In photos it looks a little stiff but it's very soft and flowy. I'm 5'6 140 lbs and a 32DD. The 6R fit well, a little big in the chest which was surprising but still fit well. I wore 3 inch heels and it was the perfect length. I got so many compliments on the dress and it was so elegant and comfortable to wear! Would highly recommend!

I loved this dress and got many compliments throughout the nice. The ballgown high/low bottom was just enough to add some drama without being too much.

Beautiful but heavy

I am petite, 110 pounds and 5'3", so the dress did not hug my body. Instead it hung on my neck and was very heavy. It was a nice full skirt, but if you are pretty skinny and usually wear a 0 or smaller, it will be uncomfortable. Otherwise, a very nice looking dress.

Perfect NYE gown

I am 5'3", 107 pounds, 32A, athletic/straight build. This dress was the perfect length when paired with modest heels (more than kitten, much less than crazy high)! I did need to wear a strapless bra to fill out the chest, and pull it down in the back to hide it. The V neck and open back were very flattering! The asymmetrical hem line was really nice, & showed off my heels & pedicure! It is a heavier black lace & I stayed warm (am always cold)! Great formal dress for the winter time. I received so many compliments & am very happy with my choice!

Gorgeous LBD with immaculate detail!

I normally wear a 4R when renting/buying dresses and ended up, after reading many reviews, renting 2 sizes up, this dress definitely runs small (I wore the 8R). The waist area was very tight. I didn't have to wear a bra also, the top part of the dress fit me so well (I'm at 34A). With 3 inch heels the dress just skimmed the ground and my fiancé didn't step on it once (I'm 5'6). I loved the dress! It was great quality material but not too heavy, the details of the dress were beautiful although hard to see in the photos. And overall just a beautiful and easy dress to wear! Always a great experience renting from RTR!!

Favorite RTR yet!

I rent from RTR a lot and this dress is arguably my favorite of all time. If I could have bought it, I would have. The fabric has a lace-pattern to it that you can't see in the pics, which give it some nice texture. The fabric is heavy and holds the structure really well. I'm usually a 4R and this was true to size. With a heel, the length was perfect. I adored this dress and my husband loved it. If you are looking for a classic, elegant option for a black tie event, this is it.

I got so many compliments on my dress! It was comfy and beautiful. I would buy it if I could!

Fit was true to size and made my waist look tiny! I was told many times it looked like it had been made just for me! Loved being able to show off my shoes! Very comfortable and heavy brocade fabric which kept it's shape nicely. A perfect rental for the gala I had to attend!

I wore this to a black tie gala and it was perfect. It's flattering and elegant, and stands out just slightly from the crowd. It also photographs very very well. The dress is fitted in the waist.

Awesome dress

I am 34B-26-37, so more on the pear shape size. I wore 4R and it fit me like a glove. It was very flattering and I received a lot of compliments. The fabric is very thick which was perfect for an event in February. I wore it with a strapless bra and didn't need fashion tape. The dress is very thick and stays in place well. Five stars!!

The dress is fantastic and the customer service is impeccable

This dress is every bit as awesome as the people before have said it is. It's incredibly forgiving and gives you a perfect hourglass shape, and is helpful for big chested girls like me. I'm a 36D and this fit incredibly well, wasn't falling out anywhere, and was flattering. To put it in my mom's terms, I looked "classy and elegant." I wanted a big ball gown-esque type of dress and this gave me exactly what I wanted. The high-low hem is great for showing off shoes, also great for a grand entrance wherever you walk, as the dress almost fans out - just overall a fantastic dress. Plenty of people said I was the best looking one there, and I'm still getting compliments days later. It was different, refreshingly different, from the other sparkly dresses that are typically at prom and it made me stand out. Would have DEFINITELY kept this if I could, a great dress for a prom, hands down. I ordered the 10R and 12R because I'm usually a 12 in dresses but a 10 in pants, but the 10 fit so much better than the 12. Although, I've seen before that it fits smaller on some people, so your regular size and a size up is the best way to go. The customer service, as usual, was amazing, better than I could hope they would be, and helped me get the perfect dress. Even when I had ordered 2 types of dresses, this one and another, and wanted to send another back, they gave me a refund anyway even though I was in the wrong (definitely don't recommend doing that and I won't be doing that again - they send another dress overnight if the one you order doesn't fit, so there's no need to order 2 for 1 event, that was a mistake on my part) this service is perfect for prom, attending more than one prom, or really any event that you wanna look good at, don't wanna spend too much money, but wanna have a great dress. At any rate, the dress was perfect, looks great in pictures, made me look 28 instead of 18, and the customer service was impeccable. If you want a classy, elegant dress that is sure to fit, THIS IS THE ONE.

I wore this dress for a black tie event. I got many compliments all night. I love this dress!

Fit is true to size. It was a bit long on me and I wore 3 inch heels. I would recommend the petite size for anyone around 5'1 - 5'4 heights. It is very comfortable and felt glamours all night wearing it. I was sad to take it off at the end of the night! 100% recommend this dress for a formal event.

This dress made me feel like a princess!

The dress was a bit long for me, but nothing higher heels couldn't help. The back dragged a tiny bit, but that actually seemed to fit the overall look of the dress. I lifted it when I walked. I loved it so much despite the effort needed to do that!

Elegant, show stopping gown perfect for black tie affair

This dress was absolutely perfect--It fit like a glove. The fabric is a little thicker but not enough to be hot. As a short person, I appreciated the high low hemline (although the front was still longer than I thought it would be). I received many compliments and felt very fancy/beautiful.

The best compliment I got was that I look like a princess!

I could not wear a bra with this dress, but I am big chested (32 DD) however I didn't feel uncomfortable. It was a little long on me, (5' 2") and I felt that I should have worn higher heels.

The dress was very well constructed. I felt like a princess.

I am 5'3, 135, 36D and short waisted. The dress was well constructed and material heavy but did not make me feel hot at a summer night wedding. The lace fabric added even more detail to a classic color. Picture a wedding dress ball gown in black! The boning in the corset held me in tightly and gave me an hourglass shape. I wore the 10R but the 12petite would have been perfect - allowing the high low hemline to be better achieved and minimizing the back from dragging behind me (it was stepped on several times). With my short waist, the 10R constricted my chest but the halter was perfect. No bra needed. Alas, even with the tight fit, I still felt like a princess. Thank you RTR! Fabulous dress.

A beautiful dress and completely comfortable!

The dress for true to size but was very close to not zipping over my chest. However, the tighter fit didn't require a bra and the dress provided it's own kind of support. I am 5'4 and ordered a regular size and I had to wear 3 inch heels in order for the dress not to drag in the back. I didn't mind that except for the fact that the high-low wasn't as evident. Overall, a great dress and the for was perfect!

This was a dress modern day Cinderella would wear!

I absolutely loved this dress! The 10R fit like a glove (although I usually wear a 6/8 or 28/29 in jeans). I wore this to a marine ball and definitely had the most beautiful dress there! I don't have the most womanly figure but the ribbing in the side of the waist made me look like I had the body of a Kardashian!

This dress is gorgeous! It was very classy and fit perfectly. I wanted to keep it!

I wore this to a Black tie wedding on NYE. The size 6 fit me perfectly. I am usually a 6 in dresses so It runs pretty true to size. If you have a larger bust area it could be tight. I am 5 foot 6 and the length was great with 4 inch heels. I absolutely loved this dress and so did my boyfriend. I will rent this one again!

Felt like Cinderella at the Ball.

No bra needed! I'm 5'2-5'3, 36D (160lbs) and the 10R was a perfect fit! It's probably the most figure-flattering dress I've ever worn. I love how it flattens out my tummy. The bell- shaped dress alluded an hour-glass silhouette. It's an elegant dress and made me feel like Cinderella the entire night!

Beautiful!

I loved this dress! I received so many compliments. I wore it to my husband's holiday party. It fit wonderfully. The only issue I had was that the top did kind of squish everything down. I don't know if it was the dress or the strapless bra I had on. The brocade fabric is heavy, which was perfect for the holidays. I would absolutely wear this dress again.
