Beautiful & unusual
Beautiful dress. The 4 barely fit and I'm small chested and usually a 2, so size up.

VERY small
I'm usually a 6 or a small-cut 8. I am busty, but this usually isn't a huge problem for me. This dress is cut VERY small. I'm trying to remember if I could even get it zipped. It wasn't just snug in the bust, but the ribs too. I was counting on putting a bandeau or something underneath for modesty, but it just didn't fit. The opening down the center is far deeper and more open (I'm sure my chest didn't help) than the picture shows. IMHO this dress would be gorgeous on a smaller-busted woman, but definitely size up for a backup!

Beautiful, but need bigger chest/good bra to wear with the front keyhole
I ordered 2 different styles as an option for the wedding I attended. This dress was beautiful and I loved the silky/satiny feel of the fabric. The color was great for Fall. I did not end up wearing this one, because I looked completely flat and felt uncomfortable going braless. My bras did not work with the keyhole in the front, perhaps a very big plunge bra would work. Length was perfect for flat sandals though.

I wore it at a destination wedding in Cartagena, Colombia. Beautiful dress, comfortable, a bit long but overall nice. The detail at the bottom is not gold, more like green. Loved it!

Subtly sexy, summery yet formal and perfect for a summer black tie weddings
I wasn't sure about this dress but ended up really liking it. The color is kind of coral and it had a beachy appeal to it yet was formal enough for the black tie wedding I went to. I felt very glamorous the whole night! The halter makes it sexy. I wore it with some big dangly earrings and no other jewelry. The fit was pretty small. I'm normally a 0-2 and ended up wearing the 4R. I ordered a 0 and a 2 and was sent a 2 and 4 so their sizing must be European or something but it worked out. I have a pretty small chest (barely filling a 34b) so the keyhole around the chest area worked for me, not sure how it would work for larger cheated ladies.

Pretty dress, nice and flowy
It was too small for me to fully zip up, a size up would have been better. I am usually a xs or s and in this case a 2, but the 2 did not work, so if you are wondering, go up one size.

This dress looked gorgeous on, the material is richer in person than the photo.
The top fit well, not for women with large chests bc of the cut out you can't wear a bra.

Wore this dress for a formal wedding. The fabric is more beautiful in person. It fit perfect. It is very fitted on top. The dress is also very lightweight, which makes it ideal for a summer wedding!

Beautiful maxi dress
When I first received the dress and tried it on it fit. Then the next day I splurged on a few pastries, it zipped up barely, very snug in the rib cage area. I'm 5'8" and the regular length was plenty long enough. I didn't end up wearing this dress as it was my backup and the other dress fit better.

Gorgeous and flowy - you can dress up or dress down!
This was the perfect summery dress to wear for an afternoon at the park for Mother's Day. I chose to dress it down with flip flops and simple jewelry, but I could also see wearing this to a formal occasion with heels and different jewelry/hair. Great quality, but the cut in the middle does come pretty low. If you have a large bust this could really show some cleavage.

Wore this to a wedding, got many compliments! Gorgeous fabric, very comfortable and flowy.
Overall I was very happy with the dress once I got it to work...but halter straps had to be tied up further than the hook-and-eye feature provided; otherwise would have been too loose. The size 2 was too tight around lower rib cage, so I had to wear the 4..But this meant that it was too loose around bust, therefore tying the halter tight and high around my neck was essential in keep breasts in place! Also it's on the long side.. so be prepared to wear tall heels or wedges if you're my height or shorter!

Perfect beach wedding dress
I rented this dress to wear to a formal wedding at the beach. The colors and style were perfect. I will say that I think the top part runs small - I have a small ribcage, and felt a little tight in the size 6 (usually I wear a 2 or 4) in dresses of this style. I'm also just 5'2 and the dress was definitely way too long, even with huge heels - I just used fashion tape to hold up the seam, though, and it was fine. The dress was so flow-y that it was hard to tell.

Enchanting, Bright and Flowy Beautiful Dress
Got this as a back up because the Spice of Morocco Dress I initially ordered was not fit to ship at the time. RTR was quick to inform me and be available via chat to recommend the next best thing. I was skeptic because I wanted a flowy dress and was having difficulty finding another one with the same skirt type. THIS DRESS delivered the effect I wanted. And was complimentary to the colors for the photoshoot we did. Thanks for the good save RTR!

Lovely dress for outdoor wedding!
The dress fit really well at the bust area, although I had to go a size up because there is no stretch to the fabric at the waist. In a bigger size, the dress looked and felt great! The slit in the front is quite large, so I couldn't wear a bra with it, but the top of the dress is tight enough where it wasn't necessary. I am 5'6'' and was worried the dress would be too long based on other reviews, but with 3 inch heels the dress was off the ground and I had no problems with the length. Loved it!

Too Big
I'm a size 0 or 00, and have trouble finding dresses that fit well. I spoke to a stylist online who said it ran large and suggested I order a 4 with a 2 as a backup. Needless to say, I was swimming in both dresses. I don't blame RTR, I have a difficult body type. I do wish there were more information about exact size/measurements of the dresses however. I was very disappointed, the dresses were absolutely stunning

Love!
I rented this for a destination beach wedding and it was so perfect for the occasion. Bust was a touch too large but this wasn't a big deal once I tied the halter straps a bit more tightly. This also brought the keyhole in the front up and made it possible for me to wear a bra without it showing. I'm just shy of 5'3" and with heels that were just about four inches tall, the petite was just the right length.

Comfortable cocktail attire!
I wore this dress for a Fall cocktail party for my husband's work. It was different from all the little black dresses, comfortable, and yet sexy without being too revealing. I felt like it hit a nice balance between being high end with the silk, but casual with the maxi like shape. It was easy to move, eat and drink, and I received many compliments. I would love to own this dress! Fit and color notes: Overall, the dress runs a little small. I usually wear a 2 or a 4. I thought the 4 fit me in the waist with being just a tad snug. However, the more fitted construction helped the top stay up without a bra. I worried it would lack support for my natural 34D chest BUT it was great (and my cleavage looked amazing!). Also, at 5'7" with 3 inch heels the dress Still skimmed the ground a bit. Wearing higher heels, or bring slightly taller may be helpful. The color is much more orange and grey than pictured. It still worked for me, but was a little shocking when I opened the box.

Great Recommendation from Stylist
The stylists picked this out for me when another dress became unavailable. It was a beautiful choice. Usually I am a 4 when the smallest part of a dress is based on the chest (34B), but surprisingly I couldn't zip the dress to the top. If I could have zipped it that last few inches, I could tell it would have been a flattering cut and that i would have liked it!

Obvious Choice!
This dress is incredible!!! I wouldn't recommend it for bustier girls, though because the bodice is very, very fitted. I definitely had a mark around my waist at the end of the night. The marks were worth it, though. The dress is so understated and sexy. The colors are so rich and the fabric is to die for. I'm 5'8 and the regular length of the dress was long on me when wearing flats. Perfect for an end of summer wedding. My favorite rental so far, easily!

Easy to wear, flattering
I rented the 4R and 6R. I never tried the 6 on, because the 4 fit fine. Couple things to note if you are considering renting this dress: 1. It's impossible to wear a bra, even if you had a backless bra it would be difficult based on the way the slit in the middle falls. 2. The bottom wrinkles easily, this wasn't a big deal for me but could be for others. 3. The colors were brighter in person than they appear in pictures. 4. If you are smaller on top and larger on the bottom it's a great dress. Overall it was comfortable to wear and looked pretty on.

Perfect for a summer wedding!
I rented this dress for my friend's wedding a couple weeks ago. The color is more amazing in person and the bottom of the dress is just beautiful - I received a lot of compliments. It was a perfect dress for a warm summer evening. I thought the style of the dress was elegant, yet comfortable - what more can you ask for. Also, I am pretty tall (5'7') and the regular size fit just fine, even after wearing a three inch heal. I would definitely recommend it!

Gorgeous flowing fabric!
I was a little disappointed I didn't get to wear this one - there was a tear in the back by the seam that was unnoticed until I was dressing on the day of for the event.. I loved the fabric and wearing it around my room though. It''s gorgeous and made me feel sexy. the keyhole wasn't as big as I thought it would be from other reviews.

RTR sent this (10R) as a back up when my original dress wasn't available. Beautiful dress but it ran really big! I normally wear an 8 in such dresses but I truly believe a 6 would have worked. So pretty though - I wish it would have worked!

Not for large chested girls
This dress was sent as a replacement as my original order did not fit. The RTR customer service was unbelievable! However, due to a high demand weekend (weddings, proms, etc) sizes were very limited for a last minute rental and was sent a size smaller than I normally wear. I was able to zip up the dress, but the slit in the front is much more pronounced than shown, especially if you have a large chest. Beautiful color, would recommend ordering your true size and a size up for your "extra" size option. Color is much more vibrant in person than shown in the picture. I did not find the length too long, as I am 5'5" and was wearing flats due to a recent knee surgery. The dress was a tad long, but would have looked perfect with a set of heels or wedges. I wanted this dress to work so bad, but due to the large slit in the front it was a little too risky for the black-tie affair I had rented it for. Perhaps a size smaller would allow more room in the bust and therefore be less revealing?

Beautiful Dress!
I wore this dress for a traditional black tie wedding in the south. It was super comfortable to wear yet definitely fancy enough for the occasion. It was a little tight in the bust area but made it easy to wear without a bra. The 4L was the perfect height with 4inch heels. Loved it so much, wish I could wear it again!

Not good for someone with over a C Breast Cup- I repeat not good for someone with over C size cup. I'm fairly petite however the "Keyhole" expanded way to far because of chest size) Gorgeous Dress though otherwise. Would Rent 4R again but was not in stock.

Interesting pattern and great, flattering color
Unfortunately the 6R was too small for me (I had gained weight and was lying to myself ;), but the dress is everything it looks like online. Good weight and fullness to the skirt without being heavy. Color is also true to picture. Will rent again in a bigger size for a summer wedding.

Weird fit!!
The dress was too long for my petite 5'4 frame and the chest area was too small to zip. I'm not a busty girl but even without a bra I couldn't fit into the size 6 (I'm a size 4). It was way too long too even with my 6 inch heels! I had to return both and didn't have time to get a replacement. :(

Beautiful casual long dress.
I did not end up wearing this dress. I rented a number of dresses for 2 formal affairs back-to-back. This dress is not formal at all. It is pure silk and beautiful but great for beach wedding or event. I would wear this out on a date night with my hubby.
