Many compliments!

Love this dress! Wore it to a black tie optional and felt it was the perfect balance of formal but with a little fun with the ruffle and shorter front. I recently gained a little weight and am about 15lbs heavier than I normally would like so I wasn't looking forward to wearing a formal gown. I'm also very pear shape and can sometimes struggle finding the right fit in dresses without needing alterations. But this dress fit well and is very flattering, even for a girl with hips and booty (I'm small on top!) It's firm fitting but the material has a slight stretch. Top has built in bra cups/pads so you don't need a bra and straps are adjustable!!! That's great for me because I'm short waisted and I struggle with dress straps being too long. I received many compliments on the dress and was told I looked "stunning." Love the royal blue which helps you stand out from a sea of black at an event. Love it!

Wedding Guest Dress

Comfortable dress had a bit of give - great for dancing. Arrived new with tags. Dress has a built in support so no bra necessary for small and medium cup sizes. Would definitely recommend.

Such a fun dress

I didn't end up wearing this because I found another dress I loved even more for the occasion, but this dress was so fun and I'll definitely rent it in the future! I'm pear shaped, so sized up one size to accommodate my hips and it fit perfectly. The stretchy fabric is very comfortable, it has a built in bra, the ruffle is flattering, and the high-low hem is great for dancing. Definitely recommend!

Vibrant Blue, perfect Guest dress

Wore to an elegant, black tie optional wedding. Gorgeous color, amazing fit. Compliments all night. The Long worked great, I am 5,7 and wore flats for dancing. It was perfect. Highly recommend. Normally I'm an 8, but sized up because this designer runs small. Enjoy this gown. Perfect amount of class & sass

AMAZING!!

This dress was incredible! As you can tell from the photo, I am rather well endowed and I didn't need a bra in this dress to hold up my DDs! It hugged my curves, the ruffle camouflaged my belly, and I felt like a million bucks. I'm 5'9" and found the long fit perfectly- beach wedding and I didn't wear shoes for much of the night. If I had more fancy things to go to, I would buy this dress.

The dress is beautiful but the zipper had a lot of issues.

The dress is beautiful but the zipper had a lot of issues. The dress fit like a glove but the zipper got stuck at a certain point and wouldn't go up. It wasn't stuck with the fabric. It was the actual zipper which was really hard. I figured out an emergency way of wearing it and the zipper ended up opening in the middle of the wedding. Super embarrassing. This was a huge issue and it was a pity because I loved the dress!

Favorite dress

This is my favorite dress I've ever worn. Comfortable, stylish, and no cleavage overload. I could actually move in this dress without being afraid to trip, afraid to show too much boobies, and it was classy yet stylish!

Gorgeous gown

Adored this gown. I got tons of compliments and felt beautiful all night. I'm 5'6, 155 lbs, 34D bust and usually wear a 6/8. Both sizes fit but the 6 was just a bit too tight across the hips so I went with the 8. The straps are adjustable (great for short waisted people) and the top while sexy, wasn't overly revealing. It did trail about a quarter inch on the floor with my 3inch heels but not a huge problem. The material is thick and the band around the waist is a small velvet strip. Overall would definitely recommend. I wish I didn't have to send it back!

Entire experience with RTR was great! Dress fit very well!

This actually was a back up dress since the dresses I initially ordered did not work. Had to go up a size due to the dress being form fitting but it wore like a dream! Adjustable straps made it easy to wear. Disliked the padded bra-like inserts. The insert outline could be seen minimally while wearing the dress. Otherwise, I received compliments all night! Color is beautiful - fabric has some stretch to it.

Showstopper!

This dress is a showstopper! So many compliments! The color is gorgeous, the fabric drapes perfectly, and the cut is incredibly flattering for curvy girls. I'm 5'10, about 170, and a 36F/G. My measurements are 42-34-42, if that helps. This dress accommodates a standard strapless bra, and I danced all night with zero wardrobe malfunctions. It felt very secure, and I was actually very comfortable. Fabric is substantial enough that you shouldn't have huge issues with panty lines. I didn't feel the need for any shapewear in this because it skims any lumps/bumps and doesn't cling. Might not be a great choice for the smaller-busted ladies. I had ample room in the top, which literally never happens. 100% recommend renting this dress!

Great color. Fit like a glove. Lot of fun.

I don't usually wear a 12, but that was RTR's recommendation and they were right on. Dress was snug, but flattering. Not too much cleavage and didn't even need a bra. Beautiful color and lots of compliments.

Beauty and comfort

Wore this on NYE for a "formal" sweet 16 party for one of my friends daughters. This dress made me feel beautiful and classy without making me look like I was trying to out dress or keep up with the 16 year olds. The material is thick without being hot and moves very well. The dress has good stretch but also holds you in nicely. My chest is not super perky anymore so I was worried about how the girls would look it in. They looked great. This is the first dress I've ever been able to go without a bra with and the girls stayed in place without being squished or drooping. Although I didn't find the material as good at hiding my flaws as other reviewers had mentioned, shapewear definitely fixed that. I normally wear a 16R so I was excited that not only did I fit into the 14R but it gave me an hourglass figure that can be difficult to achieve with my normal pair shaped figure. Beautiful dress in a gorgeous color. Highly recommend it to anyone looking for a showstopper

So gorgeous and fun! TONS of compliments!

I absolutely loved this dress! We went to the Gold Star Gala and I felt so beautiful in blue when everyone else was a sea of black dresses. The lady checking people in complimented me, then the man at security complimented me, then the next woman at checkin, then a woman at the bar... and so on, all night! The ruffles on the dress and longer train make it flow beautifully as you walk and the whole room watches! It fit well, was comfortable, and was just beautiful! I LOVED it! I wore a strapless bra and spandex tube top/slip and it was fine. I also wore 4" heels fine.

Perfect for an hourglass shape!

Fit was perfect. Zipper was a little tough to zip but I knew that from previous reviews. Material is a little giving, so it's perfect for a curvy girl. I didn't feel like I was falling out of the top. Just enough coverage and not too much cleavage. Great dress. Would rent again.

Great dress for a first time rental!

Dress was a little snug I ended up wearing my backup dress that was a size ten. I'm normally an 8. The zipper was hard to get up over the velvet lining. Absolutely loved this dress! I received compliments all night. Great dress for curvy girls. Fabric was thick I didn't need to wear spanx or a bra!

A hue of blue

This vibrant cobalt dress was beautiful. It's form fitting so it accentuates your curves, and gives that added sex appeal with the thigh high slit. The ruffles create just the right amount of flare as well. A very sexy and classy type dress with standout appeal. It runs true to size and has a little give.

Stunning and comfortable!

The color of this dress is even better in person! It is extremely comfortable and easy to move in. I felt like the 6 fit me better, but that particular dress had an unpleasant smell so I opted to wear the 8. Highly recommend!

I was worried about the fit because I read a few reviews about the fabric around the hips being too wide, and I don't have hips. But this dress fit perfectly! I'm 5'4, 110, 34C and wore the 0R - It fit perfectly. This was a dress I wanted to keep!

Felt so beautiful in this dress

Loved the dress. Wore it for a black tie wedding. I'm usually a size 12 petite. I have a large chest and the 14 fit my chest better than the 12 (couldn't zip over boobs in the 12). Got Tons of compliments and felt beautiful.

Gave me life!!

This dress was absolutely stunning. I was trying to find something for a gala I was attending that was not a typical dress. I am 5'4, 110 pounds, with a 32C. It fit me perfectly. It was a little less form fitting around the waist but not enough for me to notice. I would definitely recommend!

Absolutely stunning!

I'm 5'4" / 140 / 36D. I am typically a true 10, and this dress fit just right! I wore a 3" heel and the length was perfect. The ruffle is so flattering, and the dress definitely accentuated my hourglass shape. Even better - I was able to get away with no bra! I wore this comfortably all evening, and got tons of compliments. The blue is a gorgeous color. No disappointment here!
