Friends not the dress.
This dress was my first selection and I read review after review. It was very lackluster and the size I needed 42L came damaged with a side slit cut that could not be hidden no matter how much trying to manipulate the material. That said, both dresses appeared to me needed to be retired. As noted in other reviews you have to step into this dress and it has taken its toll on the lace around the neck as it has been stretched out and does not lay the way you want it to around your decollete or shoulder area. It will roll back and not lay flat. I am 5'7" and 125 and ended up wearing the 44L because the two replacements RTR sent me also did not work. The heels I wore were some of the lowest I own, I think maybe a 3", because although it is long, it's not that long. I would not ever rent this one again. I felt frumpy in it all night. Closing on a positive the RTR team is incredibly professional, helpful and tried to make a replacement work for me.

Beautiful and very flattering dress
Beautiful and elegant dress that I got compliments on all night! The ruching on the dress covered any problem areas and made the dress very comfortable. I originally ordered the 40R with the 42R as a back up but when the 40R arrived it had a make up stain on it so I had to wear the 42R instead. Luckily, the dress is very stretchy so it still fit perfectly, and customer service was extremely understanding and helpful. I am 5'6'' and wore the dress with flats and the length was perfect.

So comfortable and elegant!
This dress was so fun to wear. It fit very comfortably, but was extremely formfitting. I had so many compliments on it. Don't try to put it on over your head--you'll get stuck.

This dress was perfect for a black tie gala event. I wish I could keep it!
When it first arrived I had trouble getting in to the dress until I realized you have to step into it. It was more fitted than I expected, but ultimately I loved how it looked. Very comfortable, but not the easiest to walk in quickly. All-in-all, it was a great choice. I received many compliments. The I usually wear a 0 or 2, but the 38, my back-up size, would not go over my hips. 40R was prefect.

Elegant! Tons of compliments!
I rented this for a holiday preview party at a local historic mansion and it was perfect. Elegant but not too flashy. I got a ton of compliments all night! Like other reviewers, I had a little trouble keeping the sleeves down on my arms and even; my hubby was great about adjusting them for me. Only frustration was that the dress would ride up when I walked. I'd go from the first floor to the second floor of the house and have to stand in a corner for a sec, pulling the dress down and rearranging the ruching. I'm 5'5" and the regular length was perfect with kitten heels. I rented the petite peacock pearl earrings to wear with the dress and they were perfect.

UNBELIEVABLE !!
This was the perfect dress for a perfect occasion. Ordered a 14 and a 12 because I was in between sizes. The 12 fit like a glove. I felt so beautiful in this dress and received a ton of compliments on the dress. I was able to wear a strapless bra and felt comfortable all night. I would definitely get this dress again. LOVE LOVE LOVE it !!

Beautiful gown for Marine Ball
Loved the dress but was upset that is arrived with two holes in the side that were big enough that the fabric stuck out when it was on me. I can agree with the other reviews that if you are wearing heels then go up in length. I am about 5'3" and wore 2-3 inch heels and the long would have been the perfect length.

Slinky black dress was perfect for wedding
This was actually my backup dress after there were issues with my initial order, but I'm super happy I had the opportunity to try it out! It's a strange dress without a zipper so you literally step into it and then shimmy in, so it does take a bit of work. However the fabric is very stretchy and looks super flattering when on. Surprisingly comfortable given that it hugs your body. I had no problems wearing it without a bra. I was worried it would be overly formal for the wedding I was going to, but it was absolutely perfect and I received a ton of compliments.

The dress was perfect for my height and hourglass shape!!
I'm 5'11" with a full busy and this dress fit me like a glove! It hugged my curves in all the right places and i felt like the belle of the ball! The quality is great too... the perfect amount of ruching to hide any lady lumps and heavy enough fabric to hold you in as well! I loved it and felt like it accentuated everything perfectly!!

Fits like a glove
I adored the way this dress fit. It has just enough stretch to touch all the right curves and the roughing added a nice detail. The only downside was this dress has definitely seen a lot of love and the side seams definitely were somewhat ripped. Luckily , the dress wasn't so tight that it really stood out but it was definitely a concern once I tried it on. The cap sleeves were great as you could pull them up or down depending on preference. Received several compliments.

Feeling comfortable all night.
All the reviews were right on! The dress was very flattering and form fitting. Didn't need to wear any support undergarments because there was so much spandex built into the dress. The fabric hid any imperfections, bumps and rolls. Felt great!

Beautiful Dress! Very flattering!
I can't say enough great things about this dress. I got so many compliments and loved wearing it for a NYE wedding. The materiall is thick and stretchy so it was a little hard to get on (had to have someone help me get it over my thighs) but once it was on, I didn't want to take it off! I would definitely rent this dress again!

Very comfortable and classy.
This dress fit very well. Its super tight to get on but once its on it is form fitting, comfortable, and easy to move around in. It looks great in pictures. Strangely, I'm only 5 feet tall and wore 4 inch heels and was able to wear the "long" version of this dress without it dragging too much. I think the regular would have been fine but the short would have been too short.

Beautiful, Forgiving & Classic!!
As a mom to three my 'body' isn't as toned as it once was. I'm always extremely self aware of how I view myself in formal wear. This dress was not only beautiful on, it was very flattering thanks to the rousing and internal 'hugging' material. I felt beautiful and loved the classic elegant look of the dress for my husbands Marine Corps Ball! Love that RTR allows a normal working mom of three to not only feel amazing but look red carpet ready!!

I felt like a queen!
This dress fit like a glove, I wore the 42r, I didn't even try on the second size. I'm 5'3 and 130-133lb. I wore 4 inch heals and the length of the dress was good, It fell just above my toes. Throughout the night the dress would ride up, which was kind of annoying. But other than that It was super easy to slide into and held everything in place. Will definitely be renting again!

Great maternity gown! Looked elegant and received many compliments
Rented this dress for a black tie gala and was 5 months pregnant. I am glad I went a size up as it was very tight (and would have been if I wasn't pregnant). Definitely was form fitting and like the other reviews stated, there was enough support/fabric that a bra was not needed. The dress was a tad shorter than I would have liked but other than that, the fit was great.

Elegance at the Paris opera
This dress was perfectly elegant and comfortable for a night out at the Paris opera. The fabric is stretch but it still took a little work to get in it. Well worth it as this was a very comfortable gown on my second trimester baby bump. I wore my regular pre-pregnancy size and was happy with the fit.

Lots of compliments for a beautiful dress!!
I rented this dress for my niece's black tie wedding. I ordered a 42 and 44 regular and ended up going with the larger size for comfort. I wore a black strapless bra which was perfect. Definitely step into and out of this dress as there is no zipper. I received many compliments! I highly recommend this dress!!

Felt Elegant in this dress!
Fit very well - the material is forgiving as it has the right amount of support and the style helped to hide my big belly (ruching in the right places). Needed 3-inch heels. Material heavier and worked well for fall, rainy evening wedding ceremony (indoors).

This dress was a knockout and would order it again!
I ordered a 46L and 48L in this dress because I normally wear a size 10 pant or dress. I ended up wearing the size 48L which is around a 12. I'm 5'10 and I'm glad I ordered it in Long. The dress fits very well and received some compliments. The 48L had some rips on the side of the dress, most likely from women pulling down the dress because it slides up when you walk. I was able to hand stitch it myself before the event. I would order this dress again.

Love it but couldn't wear it
I adore this designer so chose this gown in my usual size plus one larger. The ruching made it very difficult to get on and off, and both sizes were way too small. Otherwise a beautiful gown. Just size up two or more!

Perfect 2nd trimester dress!
I'm usually a size 38L but 24 weeks pregnant with my 2nd, the 42L fit perfectly over my growing bump. Length was also good with 4in heels since there was some fabric that rouched over my round belly. Stretchy but thick smooth fabric. Received so many compliments at the masquerade ball and was comfortable dancing, sitting and walking! Note, I'm currently 5'4", 125lbs, 34D.

Classic, timeless, feminine. This dress wow'd me and the room!
I was hosting a fundraiser and needed a dress that was conservative and stunning at the same time. This fit like a glove - absolutely perfect. I received compliments all night. It was super comfortable and held up for my 5-hour gala dinner. Only knocked off a star because when I tried it on, there was a rip in the seam by the ribcage, but I was already at the venue and had to wear it anyway. RTR customer service was on point and made up for it in spades.

Stunning!!!!
This dress was absolutely beautiful. I was completely blown away. It's classy, sexy, and timelessly elegant. I wore it with Nicole Miller southern plantation earrings, and the Cara dress me up bracelet (which I could have skipped honestly). No necklace required with the beautiful lace detail! I was initially concerned about the size because I'm almost always zero and I was worried that a 38 which translates to a 2 would end up being a little bit large. I had nothing to worry about! It fit like a glove. The only downside is that it fits like a glove that you have to be greased up to get into. I've gotten into many a wetsuit in my life, and this was innumerably harder. I initially put it on by pulling it over my head because I didn't want to damage the lace at the top. To get it down past my ears almost took dislocating my shoulders. If you have a good friend or significant other available to help you I highly recommend you recruit them. I finally found that stepping in to the dress was easier to get on, but not by much! Once you're in it though it is amazing. Very comfortable. It does ride up a little as you walk just because of the nature of the fabric, so if you're on the taller side I would definitely recommend getting along. I was nervous reading some other reviews so I rented a regular and the long, but at 5'4" the regular was fine for me even with 4" heals. I highly recommend this dress!

Too form-fitting
Rented for a winter wedding. I liked the material and lace detail at the neckline, however the dress was far too form-fitting on my very hourglass shape. It really accentuates curves and I'd imagine it would be great for exaggerating curves on a minimal-curves shape. A note to curvy girls - it will definitely make your bum stand out, perhaps too much so for a formal affair.

Was a very tight fit (as others have mentioned) and looked gorgeous on - BUT was still too long for short people and I decided to go with a shorter dress.

After reading reviews of snugness, I did backup size larger. Glad I did. The 8 made me feel too exposed in my midsection, post babies. I felt great in the 10!
