Tea length for shorter girls
I'm 5'0 ft and this dress fit perfectly! The pockets were amazing. Got a lot of "where did you get the dress?" So happy with the selection.

Formal but fun! Love the Navy & Plum coloring. Great for Black Tie events!
Pros: Navy and Plum colors are great. Fit me well, 5'2" with wearing 2" heals it hit just at my ankle. No slipping down while on the dance floor. Cons: It's a heavy/thick material so be mindful what you want to wear this too. Inside or a cool evening outside will be fine, but an outdoor summer wedding you will cook. I ordered both a 6r and 8r ended up in the 6r. Fitted but could still breath and eat/stuff my face. Flared out enough to make walking, dancing, and stairs easy. I would recommend this dress to any one on the shorter side bc of the Tea Length just becomes floor length. 10/10 would wear to the Aquarium Gala again. I went w/ big necklace, no earrings, and big bracelet. Me: 5'2", 140lbs, 34B, the Necklace is also RTR -- Nocturne Levi Choker

Dress worn for my husband's graduation from Residency
The dress is bulging at the waist in this picture, but it was just the way I was standing. I wore this dress for my husband's graduation from Residency. This was actually the back-up to my back-up dress. My original dress didn't get sent and my back-up dress fit horribly. RTR overnighted this dress to me and it ended up working out well. I got a ton of compliments on the dress and it fit really well; my waist is the most narrow part of my body and it showed that off. The length of the dress is long and the bodice portion is definitely cut for a longer torso. The dress would flatter many body types but I wouldn't recommend for anyone with a shorter torso. The knit on the dress was heavier and very well made, and best of all it had pockets which actually stayed fully concealed!! The sweetheart neckline showed off a slight amount of cleavage but was still tasteful. My only issue with the dress is that the inside "sticky" part meant to hold it up at the bustline was worn out and didn't hold the dress well. This is probably just due to the dress being worn several times and could easily be fixed with garment tape. Overall, this was a gorgeous event and worked perfectly for my event.

Historic wedding venue
Loved this dress. I am usually a six or eight in the bottom and a four up top. The reviewers said this ran small, and knowing that I was working with a strapless top and full bottom I ordered a two and a four. So happy I did ! The two fit perfectly. Loved the rich material. You can't really see it in photos. The color is nice too.

Great dress!
I wore this 4 months postpartum (so I was not my normal size) for a July wedding. it was a heavy fabric but I chose it anyway. It is a gorgeous dress and would definitely rent again-maybe for a colder event. The length was perfect on my 5ft 8in frame and it hit at the middle of my calf. The boning was sturdy enough even though it was bigger than expected. I was not hiking the dress up as I usually have to with strapless dresses. If my memory serves correctly, there were straps that were available which was a nice option. The pockets were a life saver as I was in a sling at the time and only had one useful hand. I would definitely recommend.

Not necessarily made for busty girls
As my school's prom coordinator, I have to attend prom each year but also need to wear something that's comfortable and practical. This dress didn't quite hit the mark for me. I thought the tea length hem and pockets were good for flats and carrying things (phone, keys, etc) but there wasn't quite enough room for "the girls". I rented 2 sizes, 10 and 12, and ended up wearing the 10 because it fit/felt better around my waist. But the smaller size only pushed the boobs out more. Maybe in a different setting I wouldn't have minded so much but I felt uncomfortable most of the night because of the amount of cleavage I was showing. I found myself continually trying the pull the front up while simultaneously shoving my boobs down inside the dress. Haha

Comfortable fit and pockets! An amazing dress!
I found all the other reviews so helpful! I'm 5'2, 125 lbs and I wore a size 0R. I never wear a 0... normally I'm a 2 or 4. I definitely recommend ordering a size smaller! I'm small in the bust-34b, and I tried the 0 with a bra and with no bra. I felt like a bra showed when I leaned over, so I opted out and felt like it JUST zipped without a bra. I was worried the dress would slowly slip down throughout the night but it stayed up just fine. I'm sure tape wouldn't be a bad idea though. I wore this to a black tie wedding! Since I'm so short, it probably didn't hit at exactly the right spot, but I felt like it was fine either way. There were a lot of reviews about the heavy material of the dress and the inside boning but it didn't bother me at all. This was my first RTR and I was so glad I did it! Tons of compliments throughout the night and such an affordable dress!

Absolutely stunning! Wore it to a black tie event and it was LOVED by all!
The fit was super great everywhere except for my chest! It continued to slip down, and it made me wonder if I had lost that much weight. I would suggest ordering your true size and one size smaller. I usually am a 6, but was afraid of the sizing so I also ordered an 8 for my backup. I wish now that I would have ordered the 4 and a 6 instead. Other than that, the gown was SOOOOOOO gorgeous!

Needed 1 size bigger than ordered
I ordered a 4R and 6R based on reviews but the 6R was too small so couldn't wear the dress. I was bummed and thought based on reviews I would be OK. I typically wear a 6 or 8, but for tops usually between a 4 and 6, so based on the dress I thought I would be safe with the 6- I couldn't get the zipper all the way up so I would say it narrowed in the back up top. Very pretty dress and now that I know I am going to order it again in the right size for a wedding in the fall.

Beautiful dress, love the pockets!
This dress fit true to size, and was absolutely beautiful and true to color. I am pretty short, so it was not quite tea-length but still looked great at a longer length. The pockets are quite deep so I was able to carry my phone and multiple items without worrying about anything falling out. The fabric is heavy, so good for seasonal wear and outdoor events, but the middle section can get tight so either go without a bra or get out of it as soon as you can. Overall, very happy with this purchase!

Overall a nice, easy dress to wear for a wedding. The pockets were a huge plus, too!
I got lots of compliments and really enjoyed wearing this dress for a friend's wedding. I would likely rent it again for a similar occasion. The fabric is on the heavier side so something to keep in mind. I am pretty much always cold but perspired a tiny bit in this dress at the outdoor wedding in Atlanta, GA.

Elegant and pretty
I usually wear size 4. I ordered a 4 and 2. The 4 might have worked, but was a little big. Size 2 fit me pretty well. I'm 5 ft 7 in and 138 lbs with an athletic build. It was a very elegant dress. Little warm, so good that we were indoors in AC. Got lots of compliments! With brighter light it looks like the image, but when it's a little darker in the room is does appear almost black or entirely maroon. Either way, very pretty!

Stunning for a formal wedding
The dress was absolutely gorgeous. The fabric is thicker, so it was a little hot for an outdoor wedding in April in south Texas. There are even pockets, so neither my sister nor myself had to take a purse! However, the boning in the one that I got tended to poke me on occasion. Otherwise, a fabulous pick.

Felt so glamorous
I loved this dress!!! I am 5'1 and I was having a hard time picking a dress out that would be short enough not to have to wear 4 inch heels. This dress for the non petite women out there should be tea length, but with my little heels (and flats later in the night) the dress swung perfectly just above the floor. It was perfect! I ordered a size 8 with a 6 as a back up. I ended up wearing the 6 with a bra (but it's totally not needed) and it fit comfortably. But after about 4 hours in the dress I kind of wish I wore the 8. It has boning at the rib cage and it started to hurt a bit. Not enough to want to change but enough to feel it. This was my first RTR and I'm soooo happy. I just wish they had more long gowns for us shorter women. I will be renting again for sure!!!

One of my all time favorites!
This was one of my favorite RTR rentals and it was so unexpected! I knew that I was going to like it, but the detail, fit, versatility (went from a formal church wedding in New Orleans to gallavanting throughout the city and this dress did not budge), and beautiful color just made me fall in love with it. It was so elegant and bold at the same time. It fit me perfectly!

Spring Wedding
I wore this for a spring wedding in Florida. This dress is a heavier material but it was perfect when the sun set and it began to get chilly. It has pockets which makes the dress even better in my opinion because it kept my phone out of my hand but on me. I am short so this ran just above my ankle but I still thought it looked good.

It was so flower and I got many compliments
It was not tea length on me so I was able to throw on sandals no one could see. It was light weight and flowly. The pockets were low on me because the dress was too long but overall I loved it. The interior was poking out so watch out for that.

This dress was super cute and great for a fall wedding. The fit was great except for the bust--it was a little large and had a habit of falling down a bit. I could have amended that with dress tape so I won't fault the dress!

I loved that this dress had pockets! The material is great but a little heavy for warmer weather. The colors were super pretty. Overall it was comfy and stayed in place although strapless. If worried about the bust staying in place I would size down!

Great fit, color, and pockets!
I'm glad I opted for the backup size because the 0 and 4 fit almost identically; both were a bit loose on my torso, but that was likely due to the thickness of the material and overall weight of the dress. I paired this dress (a gorgeous deep plum floral print on a navy background) with neutral heels and pashmina shawl for a November wedding and it was perfect! I'm 5'8" and with the heels, the hem hit my legs right at my lower calf. I did have to pull it up/adjust it throughout the night, especially while dancing. The pockets were hidden and held my lipstick and phone perfectly all night. Overall, it drew many compliments all night. I loved this dress and I'd totally rent this one again!

Was greatful a different dress was sent as the backup size.
Dress rented for family wedding. For was a little tight but meant it wouldn't be a night of adjusting. Dress was heavy and a little too heavy for the time of day/location. Material showed some wear as well. Ended up wearing backup dress that was sent instead and loved it!

Elegant and practical with pockets!
The length of this dress is so elegant for the slightly less than black tie formal event, but when you don't want to be just another woman in a knee length dress. Sizing down made me feel comfortable not wearing a bra, while spanx held in the tummy. Wore this to my husband's company holiday party and it was a smash.

Vintage elegance!
Beautiful vintage inspired dress for a formal event or wedding! I am petite & loved the ankle length of the dress. Easy to wear & it has pockets! Only downside is that it has boning on the inside near the bust that every once in awhile I could feel poking me! I was able to adjust and was comfortable the rest of the evening. The colors of the dress are amazing & elegant. I would recommend for fall or winter (heavier material). Overall awesome dress!

Statement Dress
I am 5,4" and 115lbs and I wore a size 0. I usually wear a 2 or a 4 in most dresses. I highly recommend getting your true size and a size down when you rent this dress. I got a lot of compliments in this dress and the colors are so pretty. The only negative I have is the material of the dress is very heavy. I used a good amount of double sided tape to keep it in place all night. Overall, it's gorgeous and i recommend it!!

Comfy and Convenient!
Fits true to size; I'm 5'10 and this was the perfect tea-length. The top is a lovely fit for a larger chest - I pinned a longline bra in and was comfortable and well supported all evening. The pockets are an excellent bonus. Another A+ from RTR!

Potential rehearsal dinner dress gone wrong!
This dress is really pretty but it was way too long (if you are petite this is not the dress for you), and there was some wired cage in the bust area that was extremely painful and poking out when I tried it on. I've noticed some people using the hanger straps as actual straps on the dress and that was the only way it would stay up. I wish it would've worked out!
