Never felt so pretty! So glad I found this dress.

Love the style, cut and fabric. It compliments my figure very well. It fits to show curves but doesn't show every piece of extra fat. It is sexy and elegant at the same time. I got so much compliments! Pay attention to the length. I'm 5'5'' and wore a short heel. The dress dragged on the floor a little bit and I had to be careful not to step on it.

Gorgeous classic dress

Ran a tad small as I'm usually a 12, so I sized up to the 14. Hard to see the draping in photos, but in person it's very pretty. Lots of compliments all night from random people (ie: no one bias.)

Elegant dress

I absolutely loved wearing this dress to a NYE wedding! I thought the fit was great but my only gripe is that I wish it was 2-3 inches longer.

Great LBD. Runs small.

I received this as a last minute back up. I usually wear size 10. I ended up wearing this in a 12. Could have probably fit in the 14. Definitely size up. Otherwise great LBD. Material has stretch to it and the length was perfect for 5'6 with 4 inch heels. Would rent again.

Not made for those who have a large bust. Too tight to wear.

Perfect dress- tons of compliments!

Snug fit around the torso and waist which I loved! I thought the sleeve would bother me but it didn't at all! A little long but worked fine with my heel size- nice airy material. It was perfect for my black tie event!

Wanted to love this but it was just way too tight around the chest - couldn't zip.

Super comfortable

I'm usually a 12R/L but ordered a 14L because my experience with RTR is always that the clothes run small. This dress however wasn't the case- it was a bit too big. Nonetheless, it worked great! Super comfortable and got lots of compliments.

perfect for black tie

I loved this dress. I'm usually between a 4 and a 6 depending on how tight the dress runs through the hips, and ended up going with the 6. I was relieved it wasn't too loose on top, which I have tons of issues with, so it's possible that this runs small! It looks good both off the shoulder and with the strap pulled up. I'm 5'7" so I was worried about choosing a length, and the regular was plenty long, looked perfect with my 2.5 inch heels. It did wrinkle a bit at the bottom, and steaming wasn't a ton of help, but it wasn't too noticeable.

Formal Event

I rented this as a backup for an event. Usually between a 10 and 12, but the 12 was way too small.

Fits great! Many compliments.

Great fit and very flattering. I am 5'4" and regular length was perfect with 4 inch heels. If between sizes, size up.

Too small not cute

Awesome chic dress!

This dress fit true to size for a 14 dress size. I wore the L since I felt that length was better with my 4" heels. The slit was high enough to be sexy but low enough to wear some shapewear underneath. The top fit tightly enough that my ample bosom need hardly any architecture. Will rent again!

Wore to a family friend's wedding. It was simple, yet elegant and very flattering.

Even though it was a simple black dress, the sleeve detail made it a little extra special. The pleating detail along the bust was also very flattering.

New fav

Definitely would recommend this dress, because I am so tiny I had to wear the sleeve up so it was not hanging, either way loved it, and recommends using a strapless bra.

When my husband saw me in this dress , his jaw dropped. He couldn't keep his eyes off me all evening

The dress fit like a glove. This was my add on dress and I am so thrilled that I chose it. The one sided sleeve takes this black dress to the next level. It gave it sophistication. I am a size 10, 160lbs and 68 inches. My only con is the zipper was very stubborn going both up and down, otherwise it was flawless.

i wore this to a wedding and it was a lot more flattering on than it looks via website

I am petite so it was on the longer side but I just wore higher heels, very classy dress!

This dress was elegant. It was perfect for the event my husband and I attended.

The top was a bit small but I made it work.
