Absolutely Fabulous!

I love this brand and have worn it many times before. If you have tried it you know the Beefy stretch material the dresses are usually made from. This one is equally stretchy but a more refined type of fabric. It hugs every curve. The color and the style are amazing, and I felt like a million bucks. So many compliments! This is a definite winner. Please note, you cannot wear a bra with this one.

Show stopper!

Very comfortable! Color is beautiful. Fabric is more stretchy than I thought it would be almost like a scuba. Stood out in a crowd of black dresses! I'm 5'8" wore the regular with very low heels and it was the perfect length would have needed a long with 3"+ heels.

Gorgeous gown-perfect moveable fabric with gorgeous silhouette!

I rented this gown for a formal event where I was singing Italian aria's and I am so glad I did. I received so many compliments on it all night. The color is perfect and the fit is wonderful. In real life I am probably somewhere between a 14 and a 16. The 14 definitely fit but was a little too body con for me for this particular event. I decided to wear the 16th and I had a little room but felt very comfortable. In fact the gown is very very comfortable. I'd suggest it for a formal wedding or charity event. I wore 4 omg heels but length is such that I could have worn shorter.

Glam and curve hugging

This dress fit like a glove. The cape attachment made it both a little more modest in back and also added a touch of glamour. Tons of compliments and the color is really flattering. This brand is definitely worth a try, step into the dress rather than putting it on overhead. Italian sizing: I was able to fit multiple sizes at the Rtr store but went with the 40R which was marked a us 6 on the tag. The size up fit but was too loose up top while the size down 4 was too tight across my hips. If you're less curvy, def go down a size. Loved this piece and also rented the necklace from rtr.

Superhero cape

I felt gorgeous and empowered in this dress. So many compliments on the cape and I felt like a queen! It's a really stretchy material almost like a wet suit. Worked great with my flatter chest and didn't have to wear a bra but could get away with some high Spanx. Nice thick material.

Too short

I am 5'9 and without heels this was still a good 4 inches off the ground. Couldn't wear it. Also there is no zipper so if you have an updo it's impossible to get on.

Black Tie Awards Dinner Winner!

This was the perfect dress for my first night out after having a baby (3mo ago). I'm 5'-10" and the 6L was the PERFECT length with a 2" heel. My one complaint is that the dress has very little stretch. It took 2 friends to help me get it on without messing up my hair. Haha Although at the end of the night I realized I was able to take the dress off without it going over my head...so just a heads up to step into the dress. Once on it was super comfy and moved with me for easy sitting at dinner and dancing after.

Beautiful color, very flattering silhouette with the baby bump!

Worn for a formal military ball. It was VERY comfortable, fabric had good stretch, and I was so excited it accommodated my 2 1/2 month baby bump (which honestly looks more like a 4 month bump on most women lol)! Fabric was thick and forgiving enough that even at a 36DDD I was able to get away with not wearing a bra - I was impressed. I loved the cape detail in the back, it really made for an interesting and uniquely gorgeous dress! Would definitely rent again, and I would imagine it would accommodate anyone through 2nd trimester. Great rental!!

Gorgeous Dress

This dress was amazing on! It fit perfectly and hugged in all the right places. My only complaint is that the dress was a little difficult in getting on and off , no zippers, but the fabric has a little stretch to it that helps.

Sassy and Classy

Pros: The color and cape were both super fun and added a nice flair. Sexy and sassy, but still sophisticated. Cons: It was a bit less forgiving in the tummy area. But wearing structured (and seamless!) garments would probably fix that. Didn't end up wearing this dress because I liked another one better. But it was a strong contender!

Showstopper

I felt like a million bucks in this dress. So many people came up to me and asked where I go it from. Plus the cape made me feel like a superhero ready to conquer the world! I'm 5 7 and was wearing around 3 in heels. So if you are 5 7 or taller definitely get the long! Just a warning it can be hard to get in because there are no zippers. You can put it on from above or below. I chose to step into and and shimmy it up so I didn't mess up my hair or make-up!

The color, fit, and style were perfect for my event. I received so many compliments.

What I love about this dress is that I didn't need to wear spanx bc the fabric is really snug yet stretchy, and forgiving. I wear a 32DDD bra usually and I went bra-less bc the dress fit so well. I am 5'7" and wore a 3" heel and it was a little bit long. I would recommend this dress to anyone with an hourglass figure or even athletic figure.

Unique and fabulous

This dress was one of the most unique, stunning pieces I've ever worn. It is just like other dresses from the brand in that you have to step into the gown and pull up. The fabric is stretchy and does a great job of hiding imperfections while accentuating curves! I am typically a size 0 and the 38 worked very well, although I could have used a size down if it existed because it did bunch a tiny bit by the end of the night. Overall, an amazing dress that I wouldn't hesitate to rent for a statement piece or to add some fun to a stuffy formal affair

Felt like I was on the red carpet in this dress!

I wore this to a Greek Isles-themed Charity Ball. It has the off the shoulder "toga" feel with a super-woman cape to boot! Felt fabulous and got compliments all night! A super stretchy dress and hard to get on but once on, did not feel tight. Would definitely recommend this to others for any occasion!

Form fitting and great color. Maybe not 4 u if you're older and trying to hide the ravages of time.

Pic is a try on fresh out of shower not actual wearing. I tried this dress on for my niece's white tie wedding. I love the fabric (scuba like) and the color and the one shoulder. But, as a 50 year old could not pull the trigger because I felt too body con for my age.

Didn't wear the dress but a nice color

The dress was super short, I am 5'8 and it was not even to my ankles. Also, probably a better fit for straighter/athletic body types. I am hourglass and it bunched in the waste

Beautiful Dress!

This dress was beautiful. I received so many compliments! The dress is more purple than pink. The size was great. I should've worn a 40, but it wasn't available so I wore a 38. I was worried the cape would make me look shorter than I already am, but it was great! No bra was needed.

Best Dress of My LIFE

Wore to a black tie awards ceremony. I was skeptical about trying RTR as a curvy girl because it's so hard to predict whether certain cuts, sizes and materials will flatter my body. This was amazing! The smaller size fit my upper body, but I went with the larger size so I could be comfortable sitting and eating all night. I felt like the belle of the ball! Sooo many compliments. Only complaint was this dress was SHORT! I'm only 5'4 and I had to buy flats at the last minute to wear with it. I would suggest getting the L, especially if you have some curves or you're around 5'5.

The jumpsuit arrived looking perfect; I added classic heels, accessories and was dressed.

The fit was great, I had plenty of room without feeling like the romper was baggy-it was just right. I wore 4 inch heels.

So comfortable!

Fit perfectly. Snug like the other reviews said, but in a good way. Spanx for sure! I left off one star bc even with the long length, the dress just brushed the floor so I had to wear flats. Overall a good dress!

Great One of a Kind Dress

I had a formal affair to get a dress for. My goal is to wear color because black is everywhere. This dress rocks the color. You could say it's "super" with its cape. Very unique. I am 5'7" and decided that the long was the best fit with 3" heels. I'm hourglass shape and the fit was fantastic, following my curves. It was definitely worth renting. This was my first experience with dress rental and I would definitely do it again!

Cape glam!

I wore this dress to a black tie wedding. This has a great shape to it! I loved how it accentuated my curves and baby bump while still making me feel glamorous. The material is thicker than jersey so it doesn't show any bumps. The cape was super fun to wear on the dance floor too! You can definitely wear a regular strapless bra, which is great.

Perfect fit for my bump

Wore this to an art gala and it was perfect! The color stood out from the sea of black, the cape had the right amount of flare, and with a 5 month belly, the stretch fabric fit perfectly around my curves. I was able to wear a proper under garments, making me comfy and confident all night long.
