Fun
Really comfortable, flattering shape. I got compliments from strangers on the dress. I'm tall (5'10") and would have loved an extra inch or two of length but it was definitely okay.

I got so many compliments!
This dress was AMAZING! I wore it to my brother's wedding and was beautiful AND comfortable all night! I had the 20W as my backup and probably could have worn it, because the dress is stretchy, but it would have required shapewear. I think the 22W was a little big on me, but I didn't wear any shapewear and it looked great! The jersey and the overlay are super stretchy, so the dress moved with me. Other reviews mentioned that it wasn't super dressy, so I planned my accessories to make it appropriate for a formal wedding. This was my first RTR experience and it was wonderful. I would definitely rent it again!

Felt comfortable and confident. No pulling on the dress or fussing.
Rented this dress twice...enough said! Once for my company Christmas party and once for an engagement party. Compliments included "pretty dress", "classy", "sexy", and "you look nice". It fit perfectly, not too short. I didn't have to constantly pull it down or adjust it. It was a comfortable, sort of stretchy material. It might run slightly big. I wear a 24 in materials with no stretch and a 20 in stretch jeans.

This dress, I think, ran very large and it's stretchy. I didn't have to unzip it, just pulled it on over my head.

Comfortable pretty Dress
I thought the dress was very flattering. My true size is typically between 16-18. I went with the 18 just for a bit more comfort. The dress was very pretty and easy to wear. I didn't find the dress to be as striking as it was in the picture but still pretty. I liked the dress but I wasn't in love with it like some of my other RTR dresses. I would suggest this dress for a winter event rather than summer.

Wore this dress as the mother of the bride to the rehearsal dinner on a boat.
The 14 was roomy and so comfortable! I think the 12 would have fit as well. It hit a bit above the knee but had lots of "give" so it did not ride up the leg. As noted, it is not sparkly and was a bit darker than I thought it would be. Got lots of complements and had the bridesmaids asking for details on RTR. The price is fantastic!

This dress was so comfortable and flattering! I wore it for a fundraising gala I MC'd.
This dress was soft, comfortable and very forgiving. I'm thick around the middle, but this dress was great camouflage! The length was perfect, not too short, not too long. Overall, I wish I owned this beauty!

Comfort and style. Modest neckline and curve-conscious dressing
Oh dear. I messed up. I thought, from the pictures, that this dress had shimmer. I wasn't sure if it was sparkles or glitter, but when I actually received the dress, there was NO SPARKLE. This is a lovely dress. In the style of a burnout velvet or a re-embroidered lace, the top layer is navy and black and shows open areas creating the pattern. NOT an applique. The bottom layer is a palest pink (lighter than ballet pink, more a white with a hint of pink glow) and is a lovely stretchy jersey. The dress fit my curves well, and I felt very comfortable at a family party. I was so sad that the dress didn't sparkle since the party was a Mardi Gras event and shine was what I was really going for. I wish the liner was shimmery, but since it is unremovable I couldn't even insert a bit of glam that way.

Loved the Dress! Great dress for any 20's event.
The dress is great! I loved it and even more so when i fit into a 14 which I haven't done in years. The dress comes packaged nicely and super easy to send back instructions. The dress it self had some love. You could tell it had been worn before but either way was wonderful. So worth the time, money and experience.

Great dress but not as formal as it appears.
Great dress, comfortable and easily worn over my large bust. Per the other reviews, it's not very dressy. Nice above the knee length.

Wore this for a 20's themed fundraising gala - it was perfect!
Fit was on point slimming, great length and color, and very comfy. It ended up being a cold and rainy night so I wore black tights with it and it worked just fine.

I felt sexy!
This dress fit very nicely. It was a perfect length to show a little leg in patterned hose without exposing too much when I sat down. I truly felt sexy and the dress fit smoothly over my ample curves. If you are a bigger girl, don't be afraid to rent this dress.

So comfortable!
Rented this for my company holiday party. It was so comfortable! Fit my large chest (38DDD) with no gaps, no tugging/tape, and no need for special undergarments. I actually dressed it down a bit with a sweater and black leggings because it was a more casual party (and 20 degrees outside). Very versatile, and i converted a few people to RTR because of it!

This was an amazing holiday party, and I was so comfortable throughout!
This Julia Jordan dress had some good stretch to it, so the 20 fit well. I normally wear a size 18, but in a form-fitting or a sheath dress, which this is, I always size up to a 20. I am glad I did so with this dress, but there was so much forgiveness, I may have been able to do the size 18. There was a bit of extra room with this, but not so much as to be noticeable. Very comfortable, and the detail was gorgeous. I received many compliments. It was not quite as dressy/festive as I expected, so I felt slightly underdressed, but not too much. The detail was so pretty in the picture, that I was expecting more bling or shine or something. But it is very muted and understated. However, the detail does show up well in photos!

Super comfortably while being dressy
I went with the larger size because I was a bit bloated and under the weather and comfort was key. Pros fit in art the cocktail event without being tho dressy or under dressed. Has a great level of stretch and felt super soft. The top layer did not snag on anything.

Beautiful and comfy dress!
I am so glad I chose this dress for the wedding I recently attended. Although I would consider the dress true to size, I ended up wearing my bigger, backup size because I felt a little more comfortable with the bit of extra length. The dress looks almost sparkly to me in the stock photo but I did note in the reviews that the dress could be on the more casual side depending on how you accessorize. It definitely wasn't sparkly in person but I prepared for that with glittery jewelry and it still seemed very appropriate for the dressier wedding. I have been so happy with every RTR experience and I will be renting again soon!

For a Gala event I was working.
This dress was great for my event! It was comfortable and elegant without me having to try too hard (which is always a plus!) I order the 16W and 18W as a backup and ended up wishing I had the 14W because it was loose around the middle and even in the chest (where I am a 42G). I'd advise getting your normal size and then one smaller as a backup.

Substitute dress for the one I ordered. I liked it better!
The dress I originally ordered had been returned damaged so this was a substitute dress they sent. I actually liked it better than the original one! It fit great, I added the belt to give it a little more definition rather than the shift style, all my accessories I had picked out still worked because the color was similar to the one I had chosen. Overall very happy with this rental and would do it again!

Loved this dress - it was comfortable and fit good for my hourglass shape. I have a large bust and it fit well. It was slightly loose overall though. Wish it was slightly more dressy.

I absolutely LOVED this dress.
This dress is amazing. I rented for the 1920s feel. It is glam in a subtle way. I wore it to a black tie fundraiser with strappy sandals and the LuLu Frost earrings, and I had a 1920s reminiscent hairstyle. No one else had anything like this at the event. I felt beautiful and comfortable. The next morning, I wore the dress to church with a jean jacket and flats. No shape wear or special bra needed! This dress fit very large. I am normally a 16/18 and the 14 fit quite comfortably. RTR graciously overnights me the smaller size! I would've gone down to a 12 for a more fitted look. The dress hits at the knee, so it is modest enough and not uncomfortable when sitting. I would love to buy this dress, that's how much I loved it. Thanks RTR!!

elegant and comfortable!
You wouldn't think elegant and comfortable would go together but they do in this dress! The pattern had a lovely Great Gatsby, 1920s party vibe and it was perfect for my event! I had an outdoor wedding at a country club and this dress hit the right note. It was so comfortable - I don't think I ever say this but I could have gone down to the 14W. The tag only says 16, not 16W but don't let that worry you. It will fit. I have a booty so it was a bit shorter on me, but nothing too revealing. It was still comfortable to stand, sit and dance around all night. I went with a nude pump and it worked quite well. It's interesting to note that the dress is a nude slip and the pattern is really an overlay - very clever. I could go on and on about this dress, but just go rent it. You won't regret it!

Very comfortable and flattering!
I am 7 months pregnant so my review is a little different. I was looking for a fun short dress for a Gatsby themed outdoor wedding. This dress was great and I fit right in. It does have plenty of stretch, which is what I was looking for. You can wear any type of undergarments. I could have gone a size smaller but didn't want to risk it with my baby bump. I do feel like it runs a little large. I measured and went with the size 20. With the amount of stretch in the dress you could probably wear a size smaller. The colors are pretty and allow to wear many options for shoes. I would definitely recommend this dress!

Dress feels wonderful on. very comfortable.
I could fit it over my head without the zipper so i definitely could have used the next size down. but it ended up having a nice shift dress quality. The fit was weird in a couple of places because it was too big though. I wore it out to dinner and dancing.
