Pockets & luxurious fabric!
The fabric on this dress is so nice, the pictures don't do it justice! The thick fabric & liner kept me warm while outside for a fall mountain wedding. It did get a little warm later in the night while dancing, probably to thick of a fabric for a warm weather event. The dress is flowy enough that it isn't noticeable if you have stuff in the pockets. Tons of compliments & "where did you get that dress?!"

Super comfortable. Very forgiving. Tons of compliments.
It was awesome dress. Pockets were great. It hugged in all the right places. I usually wear a size 12 but the 10 was perfect. Nice and tight at the top so I didn't have to keep adjusting or pulling up the dress. Loved it! Would rent again!

Stunning!
Dress is darker than you would think by looking at the model photo, but the dress was stunning and I received a ton of compliments. Also had more cleavage than I expected (32DD) but it was definitely a winner :)

Perfect dress for a black tie wedding!
This was a perfect dress for a formal wedding-I am on the short side, so the tea length hit me right at the ankles. The pockets are awesome and it was also super comfy and easy to dance in!

Great dress for a fall or winter wedding!
Fit was perfect. If you are on the shorter side it won't hit at the ankle exactly but still very elegant.

Beautiful rich purple and navy color
Dress material was heavy which worked out well for an outdoor event in September in the fall. I'm a 36c and the bust was a little big. The size 10 was too tight around the ribs though. Lots of compliments and the pockets were awesome! No asking my husband for my lipstick!

Awesome dress!
I usually wear a 6, but I wore a 4R in this dress - the fit was perfect, no pulling at the top to keep it up. Only con - there was a small tear in the dress & a part of the corset was poking through on the inside.

Unique but classic dress - so much fun to wear!
Far more flattering in person than in the photo... Both the 6 and 4 fit well, but I ended up going a size down and it was perfect. It was super fun to dance in and stayed up well for a strapless dress. Plus the pockets are amazing and fit a phone, lipstick, etc perfectly! One of those memorable dresses that I am so glad to wear once and not have to own.

Beautiful AND comfortable!
I am 6'2" and struggle finding dresses long enough. This dress was the perfect length and didn't make a difference being so tall. I would have gone with a smaller size since I am small up top - I usually wear a 6 or 4 in dresses of this cut, go with your instinct ladies and get the sizes that normally fit you. The dress was extremely comfortable and easy to dance and move around. I loved the color though I think the pictures online highlight the blue more than the actual product.

Stunning gown for military formal garden wedding
Fit true to size, I'm not very busty so I did have to adjust throughout the night. I got so many compliments on the fit and the color. Even wearing the petite I felt it was a little long, but so is life whenever you are only 5 feet tall.

Fit great, no sliding down. Structured heavier fabric was super comfortable to wear and flattering
boning inside got a tad uncomfortable after sitting for too long, but i easily wore it without a bra and there was no popping out or sliding around which was awesome.

Beautiful and elegant dress!
Beautiful dress, perfect for an early spring indoor wedding. This dress has a very classic look, and the fabric's texture and pattern makes this dress very elegant. However, I would not recommend this dress for summer outdoor events because the fabric is somewhat thick and on the heavier side. Since my event was indoors and in the evening, that was not an issue. The dress fit very well, and I wore it with a showpiece necklace too add some shine to my look.

Great for black tie events!
I was nervous about the sizes I ordered after reading reviews, but I'm glad I got the 10 and 12. Both fit, but the 10 fit best. I'm a 38c and because of that sometimes have trouble finding dresses to fit my ribcage. The size 10 fit well enough where I didn't have to keep pulling it up like I sometimes have to do with strapless dresses. It was beautiful and I felt glamorous! Great for a black tie event!

Lots of compliments on the dress. Matched very well with my boyfriend's tux.
I wore a size smaller than my usual size. It was bit long (i'm 5'4), but not distracting. Lots of room for hips.

Wedding of a childhood friend.
I got the 8R and the 10R as my backup. I'm definitely on the bustier side (34DDD) but the 10R was SLIGHTLY too large for me and even with my bust I had to pull it up quite a bit whilst trying it on. The 8R was tight - fit like a glove, but maybe a bit too small in the bust; however, not wanting to be pulling the dress up all night I wore this at the wedding. It made my wait look great. One thing I noticed with the dress though was that the boning was starting to wear through the seams and by the end of the evening it was pretty uncomfortable where they were sticking (almost like when the underwire of a bra starts wearing through). Overall I really enjoyed wearing the dress despite the boning, etc.

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.
