Show stopper!

I'm normally in an 8 or 10 but I'm 4.5 months pregnant so the 10 was perfect. (8 wasn't available so RTR sent the 10 and some other dress options since they found out last minute) It worked well with a little baby bump, the fabric has some stretch. I'm 5'8 and definitely needed the long length, esp if wearing heels. I felt beautiful and the dress was very comfortable all night long. Would definitely recommend! My mom looked great in her RTR dress as well!

I felt like a movie star!

This dress was amazing! I wore it for my work holiday party and received compliments all night. I felt like a movie star! It was so comfortable and even had a tiny bit of stretch so I ended up wearing the smaller size which was a nice surprise. It was so hard to return it! I would definitely recommend this dress for anyone who wants to feel gorgeous and also be comfortable.

Wow factor!

This dress is striking and gorgeous. I'm not that curvy but I felt like a bombshell. Not a word I use to describe myself often!! I wore it to a work event. The fabric is flexible, so it was comfortable all night. I'm 5'8 and with heels, I probably could have worn the long rather than regular length. It was a tad short in the back, but with the high lo style, it looked fine. I wouldn't let the length deter you from renting- the 6r was the only one available for me. It is so luxurious and fun to wear! Compliments all night!

Fit for a Bal Masque

This dress was so fun for my Mardi Gras Bal Masque. The fitted style was quite snug on my body type and I had to size up from what I typically wear, but the fabric does give a bit. The material is heavy, so you might not want to select this dress for an outdoor event during the hottest months.

This dress is a showstopper!!!

This is hands down the most beautiful dress I've ever worn. It fit like a dream, the color was stunning, and was very comfortable. I got so many compliments!! Also, the illusion neckline makes it look strapless but gives plenty of support for dancing the night away. I seriously felt like Cinderella and didn't want to take the dress off at the end of the night!! One tip for the shorter ladies out there, I rented the 14R and am 5'5", without my 3" heels the back of the skirt dragged on the ground, so expect to wear some sort of heel unless you don't mind having a bit of a train. I can't say enough about this dress, highly recommend you give it a try for a formal event, you won't be disappointed!!

Amazing dress!

This dress was made for me! I am petite - 5'2.5" chest: 32C, 113lbs - I wore 3 inch heals - perfect. I had a small train in the back (probably because I am short) - I picked up extra fabric while on an escalator - otherwise not a problem. I was able to wear a nude strapless bra easily underneath. So many complements!

Amazingly comfortable , classy, and sexy dress!

First, I want to say that RTR customer service is THE BEST! This was my back up dress. I received an email that my original dress didn't arrive on time or was damaged, they immediately sent 2 other dresses, and asked for my backup choices! Long story short, they got the original dress to me along with this dress in 2 sizes in time! The original was too small (backup size wasn't available), but I couldn't be happier w this dress! It fit amazingly! There is stretch to it, so it hugs in the right places! The color is gorgeous! I would definitely recommend!

The royal blue dress with beaded bronze detail was magnificent. I rented for a spring wedding and received a ton of compliments. It was comfortable, classy and very elegant. My best rental yet!

The top is a little bigger than it should be, but what a beautiful dress!

I rented this dress for engagement photos. The dress material is amazing, it flows so beautifully (as you can tell in the photograph) and it fit my lower body curves wonderfully. The blue is radiant and I got lots of compliments on it. The top was too big for me because I don't have a chest, basically.

Comfy and stunning

This dress was a hit! I felt great in it - even for a bodycon style dress, the material is thick so I felt really comfortable in it for an event that lasted 6 hours. I had so many compliments! A 4 was much larger than a 2. Fit true to size for me!

Bold and beautiful dress

I wore this dress to a black tie optional wedding and it was a great choice. I received so many compliments. I was wondering if the high low hem would make it feel casual but it felt perfectly regal. The dress fit well, I could move easy, and it shows off your shoes. The fabric was thick enough and fit just right so that I didn't need a bra. So fun wearing this dress

Great fit- very flattering.

Great dress. It looked really pretty I just didn't feel like it had that wow factor. Didn't end up wearing it. But if I hadn't found something I liked better I would have been happy with this one.

Gorgeous dress, you will definitely stand out in a crowd!

This was the back up dress I selected and I was a bit disappointed when I learned I wasn't going to be getting my first choice but the dress fit perfectly and I got lots of compliments on it! It was a bit long on me since I'm only 5'0 and would have ordered a petite size if it were available but I worked out since it's a high low style with a bit of a trail in the back. Nice, thick Material and I didn't even need to wear spanks luckily since it was a hot day! The color was rich and beautiful as well

Santa Barbara Black Tie

This dress is so comfortable, feminine, and fun. The slight high/low made it so I could dance and never worry about stepping on the dress. Highly recommend this one! It is a little big in the top so I recommend sticky bra or a strapless with a low back to help keep the shape.

Beautiful dress!

This dress is gorgeous. I wore it to a black tie gala. Definitely stands out in a sea of black dresses and more traditional formal wear. Many compliments. Im 5'9" and wore 3.5" heels and in the long length the back was just barely above the floor. I had on stilettos and the dress did get caught a couple times on my heels. Just keep in mind to still lift the dress a little when you walk even though the front is shorter. It was incredibly comfortable the entire night, standing, dancing, sitting. No wrinkles after hours of sitting. It is fitted and not black so the little bit of stomach I️ have was showed a little but it wasn't too much. I didn't wear (or feel like i needed) spanx. Some dresses draw attention to that area but this one does not. I wore a regular nude strapless bra and it worked well. Some have said top was a little loose, I didn't think so at all. I'm a 36B and the dress fit well and hugged curves in all the right ways. Overall I would definitely recommend and rent again!

Perfect dress for a black tie wedding

I was very pleased with this dress for my first RTR experience. The color was Gorgeous and the gold lace detail made me feel elegant! The material was thick enough that I didn't need spanx, and stretchy enough that I could dance the night away comfortably. Love the high low look too. I'm 5'5 and weigh 123lb. I could have worn the 4 but the 2 fit me best!

Amazing for a formal event

I didn't end up wearing this dress solely because it was too formal for the beach wedding I'll be attending. However if it was black tie, this is your dress. Super form fitting and beautiful. I'm only 5'3" but the dress didn't drag on the floor at all which is a huge plus for me. Would definitely recommend

Pretty dress

I rented this for a wedding but the fit was off. the dress itself is gorgeous. However, it make my chest look even more flat, and the upper part was way too long it was floating. If you're short with small chest, skip this one.

This dress is a stunning royal blue. The gold portion was a little bit too big and this dress isn't great for a smaller bust, but still loved it and it looked beautiful.

Beautiful and elegant !

Fit like a glove but flattering for pear shaped girl like me with larger chest 34DD. Perfect for shorter girls too -this gown was the perfect length. I paired this gown with 4 inch heels and had no problems with the hemline! Would rent again !

Compliments all night!

I loved this dress! I wore it to a black tie wedding in Italy. The material was stretchy so it didn't feel too tight around my waist when I sat down like what usually happens with other dresses. The heading up top was so intricate. Even though it was 90+ degrees in Italy for the wedding, it didn't feel overly hot. I sat outside for a ceremony and then danced the night away. It made me feel like royalty!

Awkward fit in the chest and a tad long

Glamorous dress, but not a good cut for me. I won't be debuting it at a black tie wedding. Disclaimer: my style is probably overly conservative. I am on the busty side for my stature, however I have a narrow chest. The mesh section was too long for me... if I pulled it down it went well below my whole bust, if I pulled it up it bunched up awkwardly and I'd have to pull down the back which made it too long at my heels. With the low cut in the front I would recommend a skin colored bandeau unless you want your breasts and mega cleavage showing through the mesh. It fits like a glove and if you want a dress that highlights your curves, this is the one. Great for an hourglass or pear shaped figure. I'm nearly 5'2 and with 3 1/2-inch heels it was a touch longer than I'd like in the back (but I believe this was because of the large mesh neck). I think if you have a normal sized chest (32 or larger) this would be lovely. If it helps, my mom was a fan of this one!

Stylist Review: it was good but not great

Hmmm I wanted to love this dress. It fit correctly I just wasn't wowed. I wanted to love it but the fabric was just ok and the fit was about the same. I did love the color so that was a plus.

Very pretty

This dress was a beautiful color blue and very fun design. I have a late chest and it's a bit tricky to make it work well with a big chest and a supportive bra. It was in the running but I didn't end up wearing it because I didn't want to be constantly adjusting all night. But I loved the color and design for someone else!

LOVED this dress so much! The color is beautiful and the gold lace is gorgeous. I wore this for a black tie optional wedding and received compliments all night. The lace rubbed a little under the armhole, but not enough to bother me while dancing. Fit like a glove! I would definitely recommend this dress. I wish I owned it!
