Classic look & lots of compliments

This wasn't even the dress I picked--the one I wanted was suddenly unavailable! I loved it though. Took a couple min to figure out how the neck was supposed to be worn, but once I did it was great. I got compliments all night!

Va va voom!

The dress I originally selected was not available to ship by the time I needed it so I had to make a frantic second choice. When this one arrived I felt a little uncomfortable with all the cleavage but decided to just "embrace the sexy" and let it happen! :) We danced all night long and I did have to keep tugging the top up to avoid a potential Janet Jackson moment which wasn't ideal But I made it work!

I'm tall and obviously have a large bust this dress fit with my tallest heels! It fit like a glove.

If you have a larger bust you might need a specific strapless or convertible bra. I'm a 38G If you have an hourglass shape this is perfect for you. Know your size. Know your measurements. Because if I did t I would've picked a smaller size and it would've been too tight.

Gorgeous fit with a very flattering neckline but be always on the lookout for a wardrobe malfunction

This was a backup dress I was hesitant about because other reviewers said the top ran big. I agree. I have a B-C chest and the neck strap is a bit too long. If they put another set of snaps or clips it would be better because I was pulling up the bust all night. It was thick enough that I didn't need a bra and even if I'd worn one it would have shown the whole time. So be careful if you plan on dancing or moving a lot. If your event is more of a standing and sitting type, you'll be fine. It did make my boobs look huge so that's a plus!

Amazing

This dress was a stunner. There were a few problems though. I am a 34C but the bust area of the dress was loose on me. I wore a strapless bra to fill it out and so was tugging up on it all night. The halter straps were also way too big so I used fashion tape to keep them in place. Regardless, it was worth it because seriously this dress is absolutely beautiful on.

Gorgeous gown, but just didn't fit well.

Too tight in the booty, belly, and boobs. I️ feel like it would work best for someone who is very straight to give the illusion of curves rather than for someone with existing curves. Beautifully made gown though!

N/A

The dress was made of thicker, very stretchy material! The size 0R was a bit tighter than expected (that is my normal size) but it hugged comfortably. Only downside for me was the length of the fabric that come up and around the neck. For the event I used pins to tighten it up. With only using the clasps there was some extra movement in the top that exposed my bra, but the pins fixed the problem easily! Also note: the difference in sizes (0 to 2) was rather significant. The size 2R left at least an inch of excess fabric on either side.

No disappointments

Fits like a glove. Be careful because boobage spillage can happen while sitting. Otherwise, perfect length (I'm 5'5) and very comfortable. RTR was a bit heavy on the starch with the dress but I believe that's to preserve the material for multiple wears.

Never received so many compliments!!!

Dress is stunning! Great material with a little stretch. Size up not down, like I did. Wore with strapless push up and high waisted spanx. Length is fantastic for 3 inch stilettos, no platforms. I'm 5'5.5" exactly. From the front look is perfection! From the side, boobs look a little bit smushed, but the overall look makes up for that tiny mishap! Definitely rent this dress and splurge on makeup and hair! I felt like a beauty queen!

Amazing dress!!

This dress was wonderfully comfortable. I received a ton of compliments all evening long. I felt incredibly sexy. The fabric was thick, comfortable, and very forgiving. I'm 5'3" and it was a little long. I wore 3 inch heels. I would definitely wear this dress again!!

Perfect dress for formal event!

This black dress is absolutely stunning! Great for women who have curves as it hugs very close to the body. I usually wear a size 8 and this fit perfectly! Im 5'8 and ordered the long size so i could wear heels. Best thing about this dress aside from the fit is that it opens up enough at the bottom to make it comfirtable to dance in. The other dress i had on standby wasnt ideal bc it was too narrow at the bottkm. Too could have been slightly bigger but im also very busty and the 10L was too large all over. Would defintiely wear again for a different event!

Statement dress, made for a narrow frame.

I received tons and tons of compliments on this dress. I went a size up and it was still very snug. The material is strong and stretchy, so that was okay. The darts at the front made it clear that it was cut for someone with a more narrow frame. The darts were too close together, given the size of the dress.

This dress sucks you in! I am usually a 12 in dresses. I probably couldve gone with the 10 but I wanted to comfortable. The fabric is stretchy and thick. The straps were long and the top of the dress was big. I used a pin to tighten the neck straps. If you are a b cup or smaller, I reccomend wearing a padded bra to fill out the space. I am 5'5 and the regular length was great. It was shorter to show off the shoes, I guess. This dress is very simple but sexy.

I wanted to love this...

The cut and fit of the dress were really great. The material is thick and had a little stretch. Definately well made. My only gripe is that the straps that go around your neck are made for a giraffe....I dont think I have an unsually short upper body but I had to use safety pins to get the straps to not sag, which ended up being really incomfortable anyway.

Classy and Sexy

I have an hourglass shape and am very busty so finding a good fit with a strapless gown is often tricky. This dress has a little bit of stretch which is nice and hugged my curves in a flattering way. The neck line which I thought would be revealing - was not - and helped hold up the ladies. I am rather short and found the dress to be an appropriate length (just grazing the floor) in 3" heels. I received many compliments on this dress and would definitely rent it again.

Worked for mama of two (1 and 3 yr old)

Overall dress was pretty comfortable for a formal event. Heavy material was perfect for tight fit (but not hot). Easy to move around and dance. Im 5'9" and had to buy pretty low heels even with the long. I also have a very long torso so i thought the reviews about the front straps being too long wouldnt be an issue but they were long. A tiny safety pin helped. Overall a great dress.

Playful neckline!

The neckline of this is such a cool feature. However, it has to fit perfectly! I sized up to fit the girls in, but it's such a lovely heavy material and there's a lot of dress because it's floor length. I was constantly pulling it up so it didn't tug on my neck. Overall, a gorgeous dress. Would definitely rent again.

ONLY order this if you are extremely tall and also busty

I'm almost 5'8" tall and was wearing a push-up bra that made me a C cup and this was nowhere close to fitting. I was swimming in this dress. I would say that for this dress to fit you have to be at least 5'10" before your heels, and also a D cup :( Very disappointed

Comfortable and flattering!

Got so many compliments! Fit well, the heavier fabric covers any problem areas well. The neck can be a little tight when worn as modeled, so wore the larger size for comfort in that area. Ran into another woman in the same dress haha!

Gorgeous Dress - felt beautiful all night!

RTR was great! I ordered a size too big in this dress bc i was nervous it would be too small but RTR rush shipped me an 8L (bc thats all that was left). I needed an 8R but the Long wasnt bad at all, i just held it up a little when i walked. The material is thick and forgiving so no spanx needed (which i normally would wear)!Also this dress made me feel very sexy snd my husband couldnt stop complimenting me. I am 5'3", 140 lbs, 36C

Perfect fit!

This dress is made of heavy material which keep it in place all night. It fit great everywhere. I received lots of compliments and would wear it again. This exact dress was missing a hook/eye in the back which kept me from wearing my hair up (which would have looked better I think). It's a tad revealing but still classy.

Wore this to a Monte Carlo themed event. Every one loved it!

I love the halter on the dress. It really accentuates your chest and waist. I ordered a size 0 and a 2. Unfortunately, both were too big on my hips. For some one who is a little curvier or has a butt, this would be a great dress! Luckily, since it was black no one noticed that it was too big. It was form fitting every where else and flows out nicely.

I loved this dress so much, but the straps are insanely long!

Fit beautifully but straps were ridiculously long. I had read the reviews and knew this would be a concern, but I had no idea they were that long!!! Didn't end up wearing it because of the straps, even though it fit and was very flattering . At 5'4 I would have worn the long as I wear high heels and the regular was right to the floor while barefoot.
