This dress was the hit of the wedding. It is gorgeous and unique (what I am always looking for).
Fits perfectly. Perfect length for a shorter girl like myself. If you are looking for a longer dress and you are shorter, this is perfect. Love love love.

Very unique dress! I received many compliments and had a blast wearing it!
The dress is pretty low cut in the front with the draping. I taped it down with the handy RTR kit to make sure everything stayed put for a long night of dancing!

A WONDERFUL one of a kind look - HIGHLlY RECOMMEND!
I wore this to a wedding and received many compliments. The RTR accessories like double sided tape was definitely helpful because of the long, loose neckline. The fits was complimentary as I am 5'5" 138lbs & curvy (in the hips/rear). The 4 inch heels helped with level the long side of the dress well. My only issue was that it did ride up as I danced. The slip is not connected to the dress so it shifts making you have to adjust (pull down) as you dance...and I love to dance. Regardless, I was very pleased.

Artistic Expression
I had a lot of fun in this dress. The asymmetric hem was playful and allowed me to show some leg while still being modest. I wore it to a jazz event and felt like I made an artistic statement. I was able to wear a normal bra even though the neckline is more revealing than appears in the photo with the model. Not too fitted so very comfortable - I could actually eat in this dress with no Spanx needed!

Unique
This dress was very unique and elegant, yet still comfortable. I had several strangers compliment me on it at the reception. This dress fits well and had no strange issues with the draping or different lengths. Great rental!

Beautiful, sophisticated, and very comfortable. Perfect for an evening wedding or art opening.
I'm 5'9", about 135 with an athletic build. Size 4 is usually right on for me, but I think a 2 might have been perfect (I mistakenly ordered up a size instead of down). This is an extremely comfortable dress, and the flow of it is really flattering. On the model it looks like the shorter side might ride up too high when you sit down, but there were no problems at all. The neckline was a little loose, but the tape took care of that.

Unique dress for a formal evening
I wore this to my office gala and it was great. It does run a little large and since I wanted a more fitted look I ended up wearing the 8. I also used fashion tape; you can't tell from the model picture, but the V is quite deep and I wasn't keen on exposing myself to coworkers. It still looked great even taped up. The fabric is soft and the cut is forgiving. I also liked the built in slip. Overall I felt great in this dress - it's really comfortable, but sexy too!

A statement-making dress with awkward lining
The good: -The unique design -The soft texture - Striking cut at the leg - Can be accessorized easily with a nice wide belt The bad: - This proportions and cut are best for someone 5'7" or taller - The bodice is loose and you will need a camisole, bustier - The lining can be a bit clingy and uncomfortable if you have an hourglass - The way the dress is designed, there is extra material/ruching right at lower abs, which is NOT where you want it to hit, especially if you have a short torso. The ugly: The dress unfortunately did not work out for my body type (hourglass). I sent it back within 24 hours of receipt, fully expecting a refund. Instead of a refund, I was issed store credit ( less $35 in shipping costs) towards another dress that that I may only wear once every three to four years! $100 wasted for simply trying on a dress... Had I noticed in the fine print about no refunds, I would have never ordered. If RTR is going to compete with department stores, its shipping costs should be more reasonable and it should have a refund policy.

Made a fabulous entrance at my holiday party, and felt like a rockstar all night!
The dress was stunning and perfect (well, maybe a bit too fancy, but absolutely worth it!) for my office holiday party last night! EVERYONE came up to me to tell me how amazing the dress looked! I was a bit worried that the longer part of the hem wouldn't look right on me, as I'm somewhat on the short side...but once I had it on, I don't think I would have wanted it to be any shorter. I had to use some fashion tape to keep the front down, and added a belt to cinch it in, as it was a bit loose/shapeless otherwise. Definitely order a size down, especially if you have some curves. Loved the dress, and would absolutely rent it again!

I received so many compliments and "wow, what a dress" all night long.
I was really happy with this dress. The hips were a little fitted (I have very athletic legs) but the rest of the dress was great. I have a slimmer upper body, so where the dress crosses over at the top, I actually used double sided tape to keep it closed so it didn't reveal too much. I was able to wear a normal bra which was great for dancing all night long.

stunning
This dress was so unique. It is exactly as pictured. I secured the fabric around the bust with fashion tape so it wouldn't be too low, but this wasn't a problem because it is drape-y in the bust. I recommend this dress for tall girls. It's quite a sophisticated and slightly unusual dress and looks great with mid/high heels. Comfortable fabric.

OBSESSED!
I love this dress! The asymmetrical hem is super fun and unique! There is a deep V as the neckline, so you may want fashion tape to fully secure it. At it's shortest part this dress was like 3 inches above my need the longest part of the dress hit at my ankle. This dress has a great amount of room at the best so it's great for fuller chested woman. Overall, I highly recommend this dress if you are looking for something a little less traditional, but amazing!
