Beautiful dress! I would wear it again.
I thought the dress ran a bit small around the waist. The back was a little long but with the cut in the front I let it drape like a train in the back. It has pockets in the front which is great. I had the dress on for 6 hours and was ok the entire night.

The dress was fabulous and and I got compliments from people half my age.
The 8L fit better, but I wore the 6L because the 8 looked a bit worn and the shaping underneath was not as full. The fabric and drape are wonderful and fun. The fit is true to size. I am 5'7" and definitely needed the Long.

New Years Eve Wedding
The fit was great, except as others have mentioned you have a small pang of anxiety because the zipper catches about 1/2 way up! After a little wiggling, the zipper went up, and all was well! I am 5'7", and the R length hit just above the ankle, but I still wore 2.5" heels and it looked great! Very flattering fit, and I loved the high-low hem!

it's tight in the top - around the rib cage and chest. Go a size up.

Simply Stunning
I went to an event where pretty much everyone was wearing RTR. How do you compare with so many gorgeous designer dresses? The answer: this dress. Honestly I felt gorgeous. It did run small on me, and dug in a little at the arms, but I still loved it, that's how great this dress is. Additionally the pockets are amazing. I read a few reviews of people unhappy with the fabric, I thought the fabric was appropriately thick and the dress I got was dark. I am a short person, and I was worried about the long size, but honestly the slight drag made it even more elegant, I just had to watch out on stairs.

Standout dress, the best I've ever looked
I wore this dress to my senior prom, and the fit showed off my waist really well. The beading on the top of the dress was perfect and it was great to have a dress that wasn't strapless but fit in & looked elegant. This dress would get five stars except the pockets of the dress didn't live up to my expectations. I planned ahead for them, and didn't purchase a matching clutch, but was disappointed when my dress arrived and the right pocket was completely detached and unusable. At one point during the dance, I accidentally tried to put my phone in this pocket only to have it fall dramatically to the floor.

Regal and classy
My daughter wore this to her jr prom. The 6 was too snug in the chest. I was glad we had the 8 as a back up. I hung it upside down and inside out to fluff up the underskirt for 24 hours before she wore it. She felt beautiful and classy.

I wish I could keep this one!
This dress was gorgeous! The fit was perfect, it was comfortable to wear and I felt so glamorous! The full skirt with pockets was easy to wear, and great for holding an ID, credit card and lipstick (no purse needed). I loved the illusion neckline, and the high low hem added just the right amount of drama! This is a winner!

The skirt makes the shoes the stars of the show- which isn't necessarily a bad thing!
The skirt allowed for a clear view of my amazing heels all night long and it flowed nicely in the wind. It was long without my heels but nothing unbearable. The waist could be a bit smaller but I had to make do since I couldn't get the smaller size around my hips or shoulders. Perfect fit in the bust. Made my prom unforgettable!

This dress was fantastic, flattering and fun! I received compliments all night!
The 4R fit me fine, although I have a very small bust so I imagine if you're bigger in the chest you'll need to size up. My only issue was with the zipper. We couldn't get it to zip past the big seam and ultimately it separated when we did. My tailor was able to save the day and replace the zipper but I would highly recommend keeping the dress lower on your waist so there is slack while you zip past the seam and then pull it up and zip the rest of the way.

The material was different and the fit was a little tight but not unbearable. The pockets were impressive.

Classy and stunning
I have a small waist and chest so I figured I'd need the smaller size but I am also a tall girl so although the bodice fit perfectly, it was extremely snug under my armpits. Aside from that, the dress was a definite head-turner. I received several compliments and felt as special as the event we attended.

NYC Black Tie Event
This dress made me feel stunning. It flowed out as you walked and truly made a statement when entering a room. I got compliments all night. I wore 4" heels with the 4R and I'm 5'4". The dress was above the ground by 3 inches at least. I wish I would have gone with the 4L. It would have been wonderful to have more length on the dress. Over all I was very happy. The fabric was thick as others had said but that was fine with me. The beading was fabulous. I highly recommend this dress!!

LOVED IT (but didn't wear it)
This gown is so beautiful and flattering. The only thing that kept me from wearing it was the need to have it pressed before my event, which time didn't really allow for. Just give yourself an extra day to have it pressed. Otherwise, it is an exquisite gown!!

Amazing dress
I rented this dress for a formal event. Stunning dress; it does run small and I had to size up 2 sizes. Pro: very beautiful dress with elegant details on the top part. The bottom flows with the wind or when you walk. Pockets that makes it easy to keep your phone, gloss etc... The length was a tiny tiny bit too long with 2 inches heels for me. Cons: as some reviewers said, the top part can be a little bit hitchy but it was very minor. I had compliments all night long with this dress. A must rent.

We had an "oscars night" holiday party at work. This was the perfect level of formality for it!
The skirt doesn't stay "out" as much as the pictures. Other than that it was perfect- I'm an 8 up top and sometimes a 10 on the bottom, so the flare of the skirt was very forgiving. I'm 5'6" and recommend wearing with 2" or higher heels.

Gorgeous, elegant LBD!
Couldn't work the zipper and was near DC, so I went to the store for another option. They were very helpful and after trying other items, ended up zipping it up with their help and walked out with my original dress. I liked it too much and couldn't choose any of the other options and just needed an extra hand to zip it up. I loved how it looked!

Party was on the pier so the way the wind takes the dress is amazing: a lot of billowing!
I have a small chest so I'm glad I went a size down. It stayed up without any bra or tape and I'm a 32A cup. I'm 5'5" with 3" heels and no problem. Shouldn't be much concern though because it is a hi-low dress.

Stunning Dress
This dress is beautiful! I usually wear a size 10 or 12 in dresses but I have a large chest (38DD). I read the reviews and ordered up to a size 16 and it fit perfectly! I received a ton of compliments and felt so comfortable all night. The zipper was tough to work with at first but using the soap bar trick helped a lot. I will say the dress runs long.. I am 5'10 and wore a 2 inch heal and still had the dress on the ground.

Beautiful dress!
This dress was beautiful. I got a lot of compliments. It was very long in the back ( I am only 5' 2") but I made it work. Was over all comfortable, but the material at the top was a little irritating to my skin. I went up a size because I have a bigger bust and the dress fit comfortably.

Perfect Fit for Someone tall like me
The high low dress style always looks better on taller women due to our height to be able to wear it well. The dress was just long enough in length with a kitten heel and the top portion fit my small chest area well. Overall a really go to dress for a formal event and it's very elegant. Lots of compliments with this dress.

Gorgeous dress
This is the second most gorgeous dress I have put on (my wedding dress being first). The details are beautiful and the dress is very comfortable. The pockets are also a big plus! The fabric was so lovely as it flowed when I walked. The regular length was long enough for the back to just touch the floor in my low heels. I would definitely rent again.

Beautiful dress
It is a beautiful dress. I'm 5'2", and the high/low is perfect. The top of the dress received a lot of compliments- very elegant. I wore a size larger so I would have room in the bust- and it was perfect. Large pockets are great- and people kept asking where I was keeping my phone, and other items I mysteriously pulled out of the dress.

Felt so glamorous!
This is a beautiful gown! Fits a little tightly around the rib cage and is VERY difficult to zip so I would recommend sizing up. I'm on the shorter side and LOVED the high low detail for that reason. Did have some issue with others stepping on the back as it was very train-like on me. Would highly recommend, got a ton of compliments and it was unlike anything others were wearing!
