Sleek and sexy

I tried a 14 on but my hips were too wide , so I tried the 16 on and the top was a little loose so I added a padded strapless bra to take some room and it was perfect!!! I choose the Long size and had on 4 inch shoes and the gown just touched the floor. I received so many compliments!!! The one thing I would be aware of is the zipper. It was hard to get back up once you zipped down and that was when I didn't have the dress on. Loved it!!!!

Stunning dress and comfortable!

Fit: I am 5' 7.5" and weigh 135lbs. my typical size is often between a 4 and a 6. More often wearing a 4. You could say I usually wear a "big to average" 4 or a "small" 6. This dress I had to wear the 6 and the fit was amaze. I could not zip the 4. Pros: the material is comfortable!!! It is soft and very flexible. You can dance/move with ease all night. I received compliments all night. Cons: the top flap tends move up. You will have to readjust through the night. Also since it is an off the shoulder dress, know that you will have limited range of motion. If you move your arms up constant the flap will roll back up Would definitely recommend for a formal wedding! * I had to wear 4inch heels with the long so it would not drag the floor

My husband wants me to buy this dress!

This dress fit like a glove, it has a little stretch to it so it hugs every curve in all the right places. I️ ended up going with the 16L (normally a 12-14 in dresses but I️ went based off the designers measurements) it was the perfect length with my 3 inch wedge heel . The off the shoulder detail is what made this dress, I️ received compliments all night and my husband was so impressed he wants to buy the dress to own it! Only con is I️ had to adjust the off the off the shoulder part but that comes with the territory. Absolutely would rent again and I️ recommend everyone to rent this dress!

Runs small/looks better in pictures than in person

I thought it ran small for a six and the fabric looked/felt cheap. Also- if you do wear it, its hard to wesr strapless bra because it shows in back cutout

Great gown!

Absoutely loved this dress! Wore it to my boyfriends military ball and it was great for the occasion! It is a bit snug which is why i got a size up from what i would normally order and it fit great! Had no issues moving around in it at all. Got tons of compliments all night! Would definitely recommend!

A regal moment!

This dress fit impeccably throughout the bust, waist, and hips. I have a very defined pear shape and I was very impressed with the fit of the body of this dress. If you fold the-over-the-shoulder part all the way down, it's a little restrictive and difficult to move your arms but it's adjustable. I felt like royalty the entire night and got so many wonderful comments. Truly an unforgettable moment!

Beautiful dress but runs small and unable to move arms

I didnt end up wearing this dress. I ordered 2 sizes up and it fit perfectly as I had read other reviews about it runnimg small. Issue is the top banding doesnt stay flat and is only folded over. Thus it seems to move alot and also probibits moving your arms for dancing.

Stunner!

This dress was perfect for a formal wedding in March. It's very form fitting but true to size. I'm 5'5" and the length with a moderate heel was perfect. I felt like a super model and I received a ton of compliments!

Simple and classy

True to size. I order and 4R and 4T just in case it would be too short with 5 inch heels but the 4R fit just fine. Fit snug and rich navy color. Received compliments all night

Great Dress!

I rented this dress for my engagement photos and I absolutely loved the way it fit. However, I purposely rented a 6 long and 8 long because I am 5'7. I was hoping that with heels my dress would still cover my shoes but they didn't which was a little disappointing. Especially because on a different review a person said she was 5'10 and dress up was long enough to cover her feet. I ended up having to take off my shoes in many of my photos due to the length of the dress. The sleeves barely stay down but that wasn't too big of a deal. Other than that, everything was great!

Beautiful but tight gown

Love Katie May dresses at a fraction of the price! The crepe material and lining is flattering. However do size up on this dress, per the designer this runs small. I'll echo what others say - don't expect to lift your arms in this one. I rented as a bridesmaid dress and love it because it's totally not a typical bridesmaid dress or material. I'm so obsessed I might buy it!

Absolutely LOVED this dress!

I felt amazing in this dress and got so many complements! It is very form fitting yet figure flattering and sophisticated. It fit perfectly but with no room to spare, So I would recommend sizing up on a backup size. I 100% recommend the dress, I wish I had another event I could wear it to!

Very elegant dress

I wore this as a bridesmaid for a formal wedding and it was a lovely dress. It does run a bit small, I am between a 4 and 6, usually fitting better into a 4, and the 6 fit perfect. The 8 actually also fit, but was large in the bust for me. I am 5'9 so the long was necessary with heels. However, if wearing flats then the normal length probably would have worked. I received compliments all night on this dress. It felt very elegant and sophisticated. It's quite comfortable as well, made of stretchy thick fabric that holds you in.

Not for pregnant ladies!

This dress is lovely, so classy! But the fabric is not very stretchy so I wouldn't recommend it for pregnant women; I sized up 1 size at 19 weeks pregnant and couldn't get it zipped. One more size may have fit my hips but probably not my bump and would have been too big up top. But can't wait to wear this post-baby!

Could not wear.

The dress was way too small. I am typically a 4 or 6 and the 6 I would not even get on. Great fabric and seemed like a nice dress- would have needed an 8 or 10

Perfect blend of sophistication and sex appeal

This dress is a stunner. I felt amazingly sexy and sophisticated in this dress. However, it runs very small. I fluctuate between a 10 and a 12. I wore a 14, and even that was snug. But the way this dress hugs at the waist/hips, and the slight mermaid cut will do amazing things for your butt! The shoulder detail is slightly annoying. It just folds over, and it did not want to stay that way throughout the night, especially when we got to dancing. The back of this dress is gorgeous, however the cutout is pretty low. So I highly recommend a a backless bra. Also, if you were shapewear, they need to be seamless and short, otherwise they will show where the cutout is.

Beautiful dress! Classic piece

Formal wedding - felt beautiful and chic in this dress! I am barely 5 feet tall and usually wear 00-0P but the 2P fit great - wasn't super long on me, and with the 0R I just couldn't zip the dress up with my chest so 2P was perfect! Got compliments all night long!

Classy and sleek

Great floor length dress for a formal wedding. It was a little tight on me (I wore a 4L) and the unwire had instances where it jabbed me. Wish the color was a lighter navy, as it often looked black. Overall happy with my decision

The one I wore

Try on Review: I was surprised I loved this as much as I did. It was very comfortable and the length was great. It was a little difficult to zip up since the zipper is on the left but if you zip up first before putting Left arm in sleeve it's not so difficult. Also the off the shoulder piece was a little difficult to adjust on your own. Just a note there is a cut out in the back so no full body shape wear.

Super sad this didn't work

Gorgeous fit everywhere but the shoulders. The strap was so tight, uncomfortable, and didn't have any stretch like the rest of the dress did. I didn't end up wearing it because I could not move my arms more than a couple inches. If the fabric on the shoulders was the same as the dress it would've worked.

understated and elegant!

The dress is definitely a stunner. I rented my usual 4, and the 6 as my backup. Based on the last time I rented Katie May, I knew that I needed to size up and get the long length, and I'm glad I got both. I ended up wearing the 6L. The fabric of this dress had stretch and held me in in the right places. The only issue was that the give in the fabric made the dress ride up a little, so each time I stood, I had to readjust and shimmy the skirt down. When I first got the dress, I wasn't sure what the off-shoulder bit was supposed to do, whether it was supposed to just scrunch down or fold or what. I decided to neatly fold it halfway down and tack it in place so it wouldn't aggravate me the entire evening. I got so many compliments and my boyfriend loved it! I accessorized with sparkly earrings, no necklace, and it felt great! As much as I enjoyed this dress, I wouldn't rent it again--it ran way too short for my taste. RTR is awesome!! I'm already expecting my next rental! Thanks for making it a memorable evening!

Beautiful dress but runs small and fits oddly

It runs small in the "rib area". I normally wear a 4 but the 6 wouldn't zip up the side once it got to my ribs. I also thought the top/arms were restrictive. Ended up returning and getting a replacement

Fits great, but length is really short.

Wore with Spanx and the fit was great. Very glamorous. Although some seams were popped when it arrived, like the darts near the chest area. But not noticeable because of the dark color. My only complaint is that the long is still too short. I was self conscious of the length the whole night.

Great for curves

Loved this dress. There is tighter waist on the dress which is perfect for hugging your curves. The dress fit great but I found it hard to zip because of the fabric, not because of the fit.
