The most unique dress for an awesome night!
I cannot say ENOUGH about how beautiful this dress is. The fit is so flattering, the lace is perfectly detailed, and the colors are stunning. I received compliments left and right and couldn't help but feel like a goddess!

I had trouble finding a dress for prom, RTR saved the day.
The dress fit like it was made for me. It looked like it was brand-new and it was absolutely gorgeous. I am so glad I stumbled upon RTR, it was affordable and I felt like a princess at my last high school dance.

Lots of compliments! Totally a stand out!
Both sizes fit but I went up a size in order to lessen the cleavage factor. Perfect dress for a spring Gala!!!

Fairy tale dress
I was actually surprised I fit in the 0 since I'm usually a 2, by that was the only size available. It was definitely a bit tight in places, but I was still able to wear it. I love loved the embroidery and the material. It was perfect for a an afternoon- evening wedding in Hawaii. I love the neckline and it covered me up perfectly without being too sexy. The zipper was definitely not easy to close though, and neither was the neckline. You'll need a companion who will help you dress. For my height, you'll need highest pair of heels and the dress might still be on the edge. I would absolutely wear this dress again for a next formal event!

The fabric
Gorgeous, heavy crocheted fabric! Got so many compliments. It was a formal, hot wedding in Mexico and I didn't feel overwhelmed by the weight of the dress. I am usually a size 4 and it gave me some room to move but maybe should've gotten the 2(which is crazy) so that it wouldn't have been so unbelievably long. I wore 4 1/2 in wedges. Can't wear heels cuz it will catch in the crochet. Highly recommend

Compliments all night
I loved this dress! I'm 5'3" and wore 4" heels and it was still a little long - be careful with heels, they get caught in the lace overlay. It's a little tight in the bodice so if you're unsure, order up. But the dress is stunning... Even the bride complimented me more than once. I highly recommend ordering this dress!

The long I tried on truly fit ! I would have needed heels which is rare for me. I ended up wearing my other option but it was a tough choice.

Everyone loved it!
I got so many compliments on this dress! The fabric is beautiful and the fit was perfect. The length was a tiny bit long, but I was okay with 3 inch heels. I've recently lost weight and this was the perfect way to show it off! Very form fitting and a nice silhouette.

Lovely in lace
Fit was absolutely perfect. Slid right on, and runs extremely true to size. Only con about the dress was the zipper; it kept getting caught and was extremely difficult to zip up or down, I had to get multiple ppl to help me. Once it was zipped it was drop dead gorgeous. Compliments all night.

The perfect fit!
This dress was perfect in every way! I wore this dress for a Summer wedding, the colors were vibrant and the material concealed my tummy. I received tons of compliments from men and women! The dress fit me like a glove, the only con was I'm too short and kept stepping on the dress.. I would buy this dress!

This dress really looked and felt a bit more special than my average wedding attire.
Fit to size around my waist and had great coverage over my chest. Not too much cleavage. I had to pull up the straps around the neck and pin them to hold up my girls. The dress stayed in place the entire night, even through lots of dancing. I really loved this dress.

Unique
Pretty dress - colors are interesting and different, has some retro inspiration. Fits true to size but zipper is tricky with such heavily textured lace and the waist is tiny, so it's especially tough to get past. I'm 5'11 and the 4L was jussssst skimming the floor so I could have worn flats or a very short pretty heel. Fit was flattering to an hourglass shape, I possibly could have gone up to a 6 to have a little more room to move/sit/dance as it hugs the curves. That being said I went with another dress for this particular late summer wedding, the weight was nice for Fall but colors were very Springy!

Compliments all night!
Wore this to a fall semi formal wedding. It's kind of heavy and kept me warm but not too hot! I'm 5'8" and this just hit the floor with flats. Definitely true to size- I have fuller hips/ butt and it was body hugging (but didn't create rolls!). Order size up as backup.

Fabulous and Unique
I wore this for an evening formal gala, as I was looking for something that would stand out from the sea of black. This didn't disappoint! I received lovely compliments all night. The 4R was my backup size, and did fit but for being just slightly tight across my hips. I stuck with the 6R, which was a little big around my bust - but still looked good and was amazingly comfortable. I was a bit concerned because there were only two small buttons at the back of the neck holding up the halter top, and the dress arrived with one of the buttons almost falling off - but it held. I took the good advice from past commentary to wear wedges - good call. Mine were 4" and the dress still dragged the floor a bit. Definitely recommend!

Great dress. Very long. I wore very high heels. I usually like my dresses longer, but this dress would drag on the ground without high heels. Got lots of complements. Fit well in the body.

Fit well! I'm a 32B and had to wear a padded strapless bra to fill in the dress. I wore 3" heals as well and length was great.

Beautiful and unique dress! Long is super long!
This dress is beautiful, well-made and a bit heavy for that reason. The only issue is that the long is super long. I'm about 5'10 and with 5 inch heels it's still dragging. Anyone under 5'9 doesn't need the long which is unusual.

Beautiful dress but avoid wearing spiked heels
Fit was true to size but if you are smaller on top, you might need a little filler. Due to the heavy fabric, I didn't need a bra or any special undergarments. Only complaint was that the lace kept getting caught on my high heels and even snagged another woman's bracelet when she walked by.

This dress fits like a glove and the colors look great with a sun kissed skin tone. This dress is absolutely beautiful on and I felt like an A-loafer wearing it! I would wear this again and recommend it to everyone.

Beautiful Detail- small fit
Was so excited to receive this dress in my unlimited membership. The colors and lace detail is gorgeous! However I ordered this in my size which is a 10 and I couldn't zip it up more than halfway. It was so tight I'm not sure going up a size would even be enough. I think this would fit best on someone who is tall and lean. If you are curvy it is very cinching in that waistband. Sadly having to send back unworn.

Wanted to love but it fell a little flat for me!
Loved the dress, just not on my body! Hugged my hips but the "belt" of fabric didn't hit me in the right place and made me look boxy

Favorite RTR dress so far!
Loved this dress! It was perfect for a formal summer wedding. Definitely more form fitting than what I would usually choose but it hugged my body in just the right spots. I ended up putting lightly lined cups in the top of the dress to give my chest a little lift but otherwise it worked well for my body type. I have a wide rib cage and am between sizes right now. The 8 fit me well and wasn't too tight, however, it was on the shorter side length wise. Only downside was that my fiancé got caught on my dress a few times on the dance floor so be aware that the lacy material gets caught easily on buttons and shoes.

Beautiful, very long!!
I couldn't wear this dress as it was too long for me (5'1" with 4.5" heels) and the chest was loose on me too. It was a beautiful dress, great colors and detail. Some light fraying of fabric, not noticeable.

Blooming black tie
This dress was perfect for my cousins summer black tie wedding. It was shapely without being super low cut and the halter wasn't too tight. The dress was pretty heavy but the lace made it pretty comfortable. I felt like a celeb!

I didn't end up wearing this for the occasion (Summer wedding) because it's quite heavy, but I loved the intricate detail and fit! Would probably rent forreals for a spring wedding.

Lovely Summer Guest of Wedding Dress
I usually wear a size 4, but the 2 was more flattering. My 32DD breasts were secure and did not need a bra for support due to the tighter fit. Even with five inch heels, the dress was still roughly five inches still too long (I am 5 feet short). My crafty aunt came up with the idea of folding the dress (inner lining and crochet outer shell) inward and securing with loose back- stitch threading with pink/peach thread. The dress felt heavier at the bottom, and I was very cautious when walking. No one noticed the difference! The dress would be best fitting a curvy and much taller (~5'10" with flats) individual IMO. Any shorter would require heels or sewing skills. I easily unraveled the stitches before returning the dress with no damage done on my part. The zipper was a bit of hassle to get on and off. **For the record, there were holes in the bottom of the liner upon arrival. I am assuming that previous renters' heels went through the fabric during use, so wedges might be a better option.

Didn't wear it, giving it a 5 anyway.
Why, because had I ordered one size up this dress would've been perfection. The 2R wouldn't zip up all the way and the little it did it gave me a tiny bit of back fat (which I don't really have) going over the fabric. The material is gorgeous and the flower details are precious. Would've been hard to take it off me. I can't wait to have another event come up where I can order the right size 4R and truly wear it. Oh and you don't need a bra for this dress. Dress length with 4" or more heels, perfect to keep it off ground.

Pretty detailing and colors, but tight waist!
I wore the 10L, and am 5'8 and 170lbs. Overall the dress fit well except the pink ribbon around the waist was so much smaller than the rest of the dress. It was really tight. If that pink ribbon hadn't been there, it would have fit perfectly and comfortably. Instead, it was somewhat uncomfortable. But still looked nice. I'd recommend sizing up b/c of the pink ribbon.

so much prettier in person than in the photo!
The photo of this dress on the model does not do it justice! The color looks washed out in the photo but the colors of the lace detail are so pretty and vibrant in person! The lace is fairly thick and sturdy, I would feel comfortable dancing in this dress. The lace detail at the neckline contours perfectly around the collarbone to give you the most delicate decolletage. The ribbon at the waist helps define the waist and give appropriate curves. This dress draws the attention to all the right places! The dress, although comfortable, does not have any flex. I am between a 0/2 and the 0 fit like a glove, it was form fitting without being tight. However, when I would sit it would feel a little snug in the hips. As another reviewer mentioned, this dress is heavy when you hold it in your hands, but I didn't notice the weight once the dress was on. However, the R was too long for me, I am 5'2'' and wore my highest shoes to try on the dress (wedges, with a 2 inch platform in the toe rising to a 6 inch platform in the heel) and it was still dragging on the floor. Had to send it back.
