Fit poorly - the blousing was near my ribs vs. my waistline and made me look hefty despite being a size 2. Would not recommend - had to order another dress.

Dress was great, gorgeous, beautiful, fit perfectly, and super super comfortable. The only negative was that I got the long size and it needed to be just an inch longer on me. So tall girls, just know you might need to wear shorter heels to compensate.

Looks beautiful on this model. I ended up wearing the short dress I ordered as a backup because this one looked cheap up close. Not to mention, the beading was sort of coming apart. The dress they sent me should probably be retired, so I can't comment on how it would have looked otherwise. It's also extremely long (the picture got that right).

I loved this dress. I got so many compliments. Only flaw was that two of the chains came unattached while I was wearing it. It ran a little short, so I would recommend getting a long if they have it.

I think the dress is lovely, but definitely for a certain body type. It ran a bit big, and the spot where the waistline hits is not going to work for everyone. On me it was ok, but not great.

The dress was beautiful, and I got numerous compliments on it. I loved the way it felt on, so comfy. The only drawback was that it ran slightly large, especially through the chest, and it was VERY low cut. But overall, it was a great dress for the occasion.

I wanted to wear this dress to a wedding, but I had one big problem. I ordered a LONG, but it was out of stock. The regular length was too short and with shoes on you could see all the way up to my ankles. Such a let down...

I cannot say enough good things about this dress. Rented it for a black tie weding and it was SO gorgeous and SO comfortable. You have to mess with the top a little to get the necklaces to sit just right with the folds on the top but other than that it was absolutely perfect. I wore sticky cups with it which is a good choice I think as you might have been able to see where a regular strapless joins together in the front otherwise. Paired it with red lips and had a whole retro look going.

I wore this dress to my senior prom just a few months ago and LOVED IT. I received so many compliments on how it was different than your average prom dress, but yet elegant. It was perfect to dance in with its straps. I'm a more petite figure, so I had to adjust the bust-waist area to make it look less baggy, and it ran a little long because of my height also. But overall, it was an amazing dress; highly recommend!
TaylorApril 11, 2012
I'm also really short and was wondering what size you ordered? And how the length was for you?? ... I am normally a 2 and there is a 2R available currently... Thank you!
ClaireMay 9, 2012
how did you adjust it?
RTRMay 9, 2012
Hi Claire, the waist in this dress is adjustable so you can move it to make your torso longer or shorter with more fabric!

This saved me from needing to buy a long dress. Fabric was different than expected though.
Photographs well but fabric in person is jersey and a little translucent. Chains fell off during the night but overall fit was great/flattering and worked for black tie wedding. I also went a size down from what I expected.

This dress is very pretty on the hanger and on. It was a wee bit long for me and I had 5" heels on. I got a 12L and found the dress to be too big for me. Either I lost too much weight for the size or it runs large. It is very comfortable and beautiful

Felt very comfortable and easy to dance in!
I wore this gown to a NYE formal event. I am 5'8' and oredered L and it was just the right length. I received tons of complements. I think you need to be quite tall to pull this dress off. It does tend to run a tiny big. Only complaint I had was that a few beads were missing on strap and a few chains were missing. The chains might be a bit fragile to be a rental dress. Loved the look however!

effortless dress
I wore this to a black tie wedding on New Year's Eve. I wore the 10R, because my back up was the 12R. Probably could have gotten away with the 8R. That said, super comfortable, very chic, received lots of compliments. Wore braless without difficulty or mishap. Would absolutely recommend.

This dress is a formal winner!
This dress is gorgeous. The fit is super flattering, especially if you're curvy. You don't have to wear a lot of jewelry because of the silver chain. I tried to buy this dress after I rented it, but unfortunately I don't think it's available anywhere else! Unless you're really tall, get the regular length. I'm 5'7" and the "long" was about an inch too long. Other than that, this dress is perfect.

Not as fancy as it looks
From the pictures, I thought this dress was going to be made out of heavy, rich fabric that would look like a million bucks... not so much. The material is quite light, if it was any lighter, you might be able to see through the dress if standing in front of some light. The metallic embellishment on the front was not very rich either, kind of looked cheap, would have looked cheap if not for the fine work on the shoulder straps. Ran kind of short, for a "long" fit. I was disappointed. The dress looks so amazing on the picture, but came short (no pun intended) in many aspects.

It was definitely a good length for 4 inch heels & the bigger the "fitting" size you wear the more it shows your cleavage.

Great fit-lots of compliments!
I wore this dress to a formal charity event in Janurary when I was four months pregnant. It was a great dress because it wasn't too tight so I felt very comfortable in it with my bump. It was also great for winter because the fabric was a little heavier feeling. I did order slightly larger sizes than I normally would because I was pregnant, but it was still great. I would definently recommend the Long size though (I'm 5'8") because I had to wear slipper-like shoes to make sure it didn't look too short.

Wore this for a July wedding. It's incredibly flattering and I was complimented all night!
The fit was mostly true to size, but I ended up belting it so I could define my waist a bit more. The fabric is thin so you can see shape through it when you're back lit, so if you're modest about that, just a heads up. The fabric wasn't the greatest quality but overall I really was pleased with the dress and was sad when I had to put it back in the mail. In fact, would rent again in a heart beat. Felt sexy without being overexposed.

Long, sexy, black dress
This dress fit in perfectly at a Black Tie Optional Wedding. It was a little long for my height, so I had to wear very high shoes. It would best fit women 5'4" and up. Hopefully they will make this in a petite length soon and I thenI would rent it again!

Sexy and comfortable!
I felt terrific in this dress! It showed off my upper body, while providing some forgiveness in the lower regions. I think the fit is very forgiving for a variety of shapes. The black fabric was thicker than I thought it might be (in a good way) so it laid nicely. I'm 5'6" and found the L length perfect with high heels.

Super comfortable and flattering
I was nervous about a few things pertaining to this dress particularly about it looking 'baggy' and not showing a waist. I was also nervous about comments made about the material. So when I put it on, I was very pleased. The material is smooth, comfortable, and thicker than you might be led to believe. The cut in the chest is pretty deep but the fact that you can adjust the sliding knot in the back helps you alter how much cleavage shows (slightly). I used a Nubra and it was perfect. I think I could have gotten away with a regular bra but I was glad not to worry about it. The beading and chains were in perfect condition. I did feel it ran slightly big so if you are teetering, go smaller on your second size. It was also quite long. I'm just about 5'7 so I always choose long but for this 4L I needed to wear my tallest heels. Great, great dress, very elegant. I recommend!

Meeting James Mischka the week before and telling him I'd be wearing one of his dresses!
Everything was great. This dress is very forgivable so the 6 and 8 fit (just the 8 showed more cleavage) I wore 4 inch heels.The dress was a tad too long for me, however, and unfortunately for some reason the fashion tape that is usually supplied didn't come this time. That was the only downside as I would have liked to shorten it, but otherwise it was really wonderful fit, material, etc.

I would go a size down, it was less form fitting than I wanted and looked a little too big. Still a hit, but would've like it to be a little tighter.

Great, fast shipping!
I thought I was going to love this dress for a more edgy black tie wedding look, but when I got it and tried it on it looked a bit more "wet seal" than I was hoping. It wasn't a bad dress, just not quite my style? I ended up wearing the other option I chose. The RTR process was fantastic though!

Dress was beautiful but long
There was an issue getting me the dress size I requested. I'm 5'6'' and needed the regular length, but only the long was available when my dress was about to ship to me. The RTR crew was awesome in helping me pick a different dress, and I was surprised that this dress in the long showed up as well. I tried it on and it was absolutely gorgeous. the cinch sits perfectly, and the back is so flattering for those of us with rolls. It was so comfortable as well. The only issue for me was the neckline would need fashion tape for sure, because the cut went way too low for me, and the dress they sent was a long, so it was about 1.5' too long, which, with about 3in heels, was actually fine. wish I had had two events that weekend to wear both my dresses!

I loved everything about this dress! It was flattering from all angles and wasn't revealing at all!
The fit was a little bit big, but ran pretty true to size. I got the 6L because I'm 5'8 and it was perfect for the shoes I chose which had 2 1/12 inch heels. I got multiple comments throughout the night about how pretty the dress was and how slimming it was too. Overall - great dress. I wish I could have kept it.

I really love how this dress looks.
Sadly when I ordered this dress it was my first time trying RTR, the dress had a problem and I had ordered it the day before needing it and didn't realize how easy it would have been to get a new one sent to me. I did not wear it but when I tried it on it fit amazing and I fell in love.

Walking in to 3 compliments before I even got to the bar.
This dress was very elegant. My biggest problem was that it was WAY too big. When I first tried it on, it was falling off me; it definitely runs large. I grabbed a belt and placed it where the natural waist was and it looked much better. I am sorry I do not have a picture of the event but here is a picture from when I was trying to figure out how to fix the size issue.

Like the dress if it weren't so large.
It ran a size, if not two sizes big everywhere. Im 5'8 and the 4L was still 3 inches too long in 4 inch heels. The waist hung despite the elastic and I didn't like the look when I belted it. If i were to do it again I would have gone with the 0L. Super thick material, flattering cut just size WAY down.

Great dress, great first RTR experience!
I am 5'7" so I ordered both the 8R and 8L. The 8R was perfect, but if you are small chested (like me!), it might need to be pinned in the middle. My dress didn't have as nearly many chains as the one in the picture and some of the beading was missing, but you couldn't tell unless you knew what to look for. I received many, many compliments. The dress is forgiving and photographs well, but it's more of a jersey type material and not overly slimming. Overall, I was really happy with my first RTR experience.

This dress fit me amazingly and the length was perfect as well. I was worried the fabric would cling but it flowed beautifully. It definitely has a cleopatra feel to it and I got so many compliments on it. I felt gorgeous in it.
