BEST. DRESS. EVER.
Petite girls, stop shopping right meow. This dress is the most stunning thing you will ever put on your body and you don't even need crazy shoes to make it fit if you get the petite length. The material is curve hugging but very forgiving, so it fits exactly the way you'd want and works great with a strapless bra and whatever undies you want to wear. The color POPS and I guarantee everyone will look at you when you are in a room of black and navy gowns. I want to be married again in this dress. I want to be buried in this dress. I want to wear this dress to every birthday party I ever have for the rest of my life. The "red Whitney gown" by the same designer is the same fabulous fabric with a slightly different strap line if you like RED instead of blue, but holy moly for a shorty like me it was so incredible to find a full-length gown that fits like it was custom altered. Get it, love it, enjoy it, and thank me later.

Gorgeous color, forgiving fabric.
I am 5'2" and 123# with a full bust and a mom-of-3 bod. The 40P fit my size 2 bottom/size 4 top like a glove, but I did definitely need shapewear underneath and tape. The length was perfect with 3" heels.This was a jaw dropper and I'd rent it again.

Amazing and Comfortable Dress
Such a comfortable and formfitting dress! Easy to dance in all night long!!! I'm 5'2 and weigh 125lbs, usually a size 4. The 38R would have been perfect but they didn't have it so I got a 40R and a 38L which fit like a glove but too long. The size 40 was too large but right length, I had to pull up by dress a lot to avoid a wardrobe malfunction but that's alright. Regular length is perfect, I wore 5 inch heels that night.

Pretty blue
I loved the dress and got a ton of compliments. The color was great and I'm glad I went with the 38L (I'm 5'8"). I was worried it would be too big but it fit great. I loved the cut and the fabric 10/10 super happy I rented!

Unique dress and surprisingly very comfortable.
Wore for a gala at the Art Institute of Chicago. Dress fit perfect, Runs large. Luckily there was a petite size and I was able to wear a long dress with my 4'11 height, wore 3 inch heels. The dress was super comfortable and I received a ton of compliments. The color stood out and the style is very chic and glamorous. Wish I could keep it!!

This dress made me feel like a queen.
I'd originally ordered another dress, but luckily RTR sent me this one as a replacement! It fit like a glove - the seams were incredibly flattering, and the length was just right with low heels (I'm 5'5''). Best of all, it was INCREDIBLY stretchy. I was able to dance all night with no shifting, discomfort, and tons of compliments. If this dress came in other colors, I'd wear it over and over again to every occasion.

Didn't end up wearing it...
Rented this as a back-up for a wedding, but I decided it was too formal for the rustic Vermont setting. It was a beautiful dress though. Some things to note: there is no zipper. I couldn't believe it. You have to slink into it, and the fabric reminds me of some kind of fancy scuba/neoprene blend. Also, the "train" of the dress was wrinkled when it arrived. Be prepared to steam/iron in order to keep the mermaid tail part looking fabulous before you wear it.

Absolutely stunning
this dress fit my curves perfectly, I loved it so much. I originally ordered a 40L and a 42R I wish I would've gotten a 42L so I could've had a little more wiggle room but the material was stretchy enough for me to be comfortable in the 40L. The color is stunning, I didn't want to send it back! #militaryball

Maternity style at its best!
This dress was beautiful and extra comfortable for my six month preggo belly. The fabric was a little thick but worked well for a summer wedding. I would definitely order again.

Nobody could tell me nothin that night!!!
Holy HELL this dress is BOMB. I have never felt more like a princess. It was a stunner, and received a ton of compliments, both in person and afterwards online. RENT THIS DRESS GIRLS!!! I was a little apprehensive with the off the shoulders element... I dance like a maniac and I didn't want to have to be tugging at it all evening. But I had no issues whatsoever... I threw my hands in the air, waved em like I just didn't care, and I dropped it way way down... the fabric was stretchy, moveable, breathable, and forgiving. Damn, I love this dress. I will say that it ran a bit bigger than I had hoped - I'm normally a size 6(ish), so I got that and then a size up, thinking it would be hella tight. I wore the smaller size and still would've been fine going down another size. As far as the length - I am a tall girl, 5'9. I ordered one dress in long, one in regular. Ended up wearing the long, with 2.75" in heels - it was perfect. Ladies, rent this dress. You will not regret it!!

Perfect dress. I am 5"9.5 and wore 3" heels. The 38L was great for a tall size 4.
I read the other reviews where people were raving about all the compliments they received, and they were very right! So many people came up to me and said the dress looked great. No issues with the longer train either, I didn't trip (myself or anyone else) all night! The only weird thing is the seam by the collar looks a little unfinished. Totally not a deal breaker, as I wore this to a night event, so no know noticed. The fabric is a little on the thick side (very supportive), but I wouldn't recommend this for hot/outdoor event. I was inside in June and it was 100% comfortable.

This dress will flatter any body type. I would opt for a size smaller than normally worn since the material stretches.

Perfect and Comfy
This dress was very comfy and I got many compliments. It complimented all my curves and was easy to put on. No zippers, no buttons! Stretchy material that helped make room for more food to eat lol. Size was great and it gave me tons of cleavage- I am not very blessed up there but it gave the illusion I was. ;)

Color! Neckline!
This color is everything. The neckline is everything. The bottom of the dress is everything. I could of probably rented a size down since tj fabric was on the thicker slide. It bunched alittle bit but was still flattering and hugged in all the right places!

Didn't wear it, but the color is breathtaking.
This dress is really comfortable and the color is spectacular. That being said, I received a 6 and an 8 equivalent, and both were quite loose. They also didn't have any size labels, which made it tough to tell the difference. I could have gone down to a 2 and a 4 in this, it was so stretchy. I probably could have gotten away with the larger size, but I just didn't love how it looked a little too baggy. Will absolutely rent again in the right sizes.

Felt like a million bucks
Wore this dress to a black tie wedding and it fit perfectly- the combo of stretchy and thick fabric helped my feel comfortable while looking glamorous! The dress is amazing and I got a ton of compliments on the cut and color. It was a bit heavy so if the weather is really warm you might have issues with overheating but I danced the night away with no problems. I wore a strapless bra and seamless thong- you couldn't see either thru the material. Highly recommend!!

Be ready for the Compliments
This dress fit perfectly. No need food r spanx but if you wanted to smooth out all those imperfections you could have done so. This dress was a back up they sent because my dress was unavailable. Let me tell you how appreciative I was! This style is not One i would have selected on my own but now :-) I would absolutely order this again. I have never been more comfortable and able to breathe and dance in this dress. I received so many complete from complete strangers on how beautiful the color of this dress was and how amazing I looked !

Turning heads in blue!
I loved this dress and felt so sexy wearing it! I opted for the 42 because it was a Long and looked better with my height. Because of that the top of it was a little more loose than I would have preferred. The dress is a thick material and it does a great job of showing off all the right curves. I got so many compliments and my date even had people commenting to him about it says later. I highly recommend it to any one who doesn't want to blend in with another LBD!!

Highly recommended!
The fabric is thicker and stretches so provides great coverage over problem areas while fitting like a glove. If you're between sizes, size down. Even with a large bust, I am a 36 G, I still had room. I sized up being concerned it would run small as it's made in Italy, so it was a bit loose in some areas but still felt amazing in it.

I wore this dress to a Mardi Gras Ball and received so many compliments on the color!
I really loved this dress. However, the fit and color shows every flaw. I typically do not need to wear spanx or any undergarments to smooth things out, but I felt slightly self conscience all night in this dress. Shoulders back and sucking it all in- all night LOL! I will say, that this is a one of those dresses that really standout without it looking like you tried very hard. I would definitely recommend, just wear spanx and size up just in case!

Stunning spring elegance
I loved this dress the very first time I saw it on the RTR. I'm 5'8" and typically wear a 4 in every dress. However, I ended up going with a 2L because the the 4 was out of stock. Although "sizing down" made it a little tight in the thighs (and rear), it still ended up being the perfect dress for my Optometry formal.

Mother of bride glamour dress
I rented this dress at the last minute as I was not at all pleased with the results of my Seamstress's alterations to my mother of the bride gown. My daughter had rented about four outfits from RTR, and was thrilled by each rental! I was so thrilled with my decision! The dress made me feel like a glamorous , fun mother of the amazing ,glamorous bride. I danced away the night feeling just that. Not only was my husband full of compliments, so was everyone else Don't hesitate to rent this one !
