This dress is class and gorgeous!

This dress is really beautiful and very classy. Perfect for a black tie wedding! It didn't do much for my figure or anything but the back bow detail is just so cute and really makes the dress. I ultimately didn't end up wearing this dress in favor of a different one but I would certainly recommend this to others.

Unique, comfort, and beauty all in one!

Wore this for a gala event. The long was the perfect length- just hitting the floor. I received so many compliments on this dress. The back was super pretty. No bra needed. Super comfortable!

Loved, loved, loved this. Even with my large chest, I didn't need a bra. Fabric was gorgeous and expensive feeling. Loved the bow in the back. Got tons of compliments. Super flattering cut.

Stunning!

This dress is beautiful and a major statement dress. It fit me perfectly. It's fairly long but otherwise perfect. You cannot wear a bra with this dress.

I am OBSESSED with this dress...!!!

Very flattering! I felt like a trillion bucks in this dress. It is just gorgeous from the moment you put it on. I loved it, and would rent it again in a heartbeat. Stunning. It fit so well, and has a beautiful embellishment of a bow in the back (not pictured).

This dress was made for me!

Was unsure about the pattern on the rack but once you put it on... just wow. I wore this to the NYC Ballet Spring Gala and got all sorts of compliments. Super flattering, super comfy, perfect length. The bow on the back is super cute too!! Wish I could wear this every day. Perfect for a spring or summer event.

Beautiful dress

Beautiful, sleek material. Loved the girly bow in the back. But the straps were too long as I am short waisted, so I had to wear a different dress.

Second choice!

My husband love this dress. It fit just right on length so it might be short for taller ladies. Didn't wear just because the back was showing a little bit of my rolls.

Beautiful! And the back is a show-stopper!

The only thing that could have made this dress more perfect would have been pockets, but I got compliments all night long. If you live alone, as I do, getting into this one is challenging, but the contortions were worth it!

A total SHOWSTOPPER & Super Comfortable!!!

I ordered two dresses for a very formal, black-tie wedding in the middle of July in Florida. Needless to say, it is really hot and humid down here and I wanted something beautiful but also lightweight. This dress was everything!!! Fabric is beautiful and the cut of the dress hits really well in all the right places. The straps are a bit long so I had to work with those to get them to sit right but I managed to get them to work. This dress would probably best for ladies with a "C" cup or smaller. I feel it would be way to tight for anyone larger as the top is very fitted. The dress is gently notched in at the waist and it is a true A-line to the floor. Plenty of room in the skirt area and flows perfectly when walking. I am 5'4" but with my heels on I stood about 5'7" and the dress was the perfect length. The back is stunning and the detail with the bow is really great. The top was well structured and felt secure but you'll need to use bra-tape or a sticky bra with this gown. It will work just fine. The print is a navy blue floral that on a creamy white background. The flowers in the print are rimmed with a rose-gold color that you can't see until you have the dress in front of you. The print is very forgiving and very flattering combined with the overall shape of the dress and the quality of the fabric. No one else had this dress at the wedding I went to and I was comfortable and felt beautiful in it all night. If you're on the fence about this one, don't be. It's worth a try and you can't beat this for style and comfort all in one. I was sooooo happy with it!!!

Gorgeous dress

Fit a little larger than expected, but probably would have fit if I had larger chest. Should have rented 4R. Ended up being more formal (skirt, material) than I expected so I wasn't able to wear it, but am hoping to have an occasion to wear it in the future!

The top on this was very tight in places and ill fitting in others.

The length was good for me, even though I'm on the shorter end of "regular"

Too tight through bust - couldn't wear

This dress is made from a really cool, eye-popping fabric. Fit well through the waist and hips but the bust was too tight to even get closed. Could've pinned it shut but wasn't worth the trouble and possibly having it pop open. Unfortunate because it was a pretty dress.

Matched the beau's outfit and wedding location perfectly!

Our goal was to find a dress that went with the beau's shoes, which meant black was out of the picture. I ordered a number of dresses trying to find the one that went just right. This one ended up being PERFECT. I had to order it in a 12L when I normally wear a size 8L or 10L. One of the things I loved was the gold accents throughout that you can't see in pictures, but prevalent in person. The dress, also, has straps. However, because I have a short torso they were super long. I was going to pin them down, but then when I looked as they were off my shoulders, I fell in love with it as a strapless dress instead. The bow on the back was just, so, extra and perfect for a southern wedding! I had to go through a heck of a process to get a dress that fit and worked, but I am glad that I found this one.

favorite RTR yet

Fits beautifully (generous side of true to size), exceptionally flattering A line with- back just thick enough to camouflage a strapless bra, L long perfect for me (5’11”) and could sneak in a 1” heel - couldn’t stop trying on before the event, complimented by strangers all night - loved it, sad to send it back!

Sweet in the front, slightly low in the back

I rented this dress for a formal event but ended up wearing another for a couple reasons. I really liked the dress (it's very pretty!) but I wanted something a little sexier and the front of this dress is more sweet than sexy. Also, the back is cut slightly lower than I was comfortable with, although someone of a slightly smaller size likely wouldn't have this issue. You'll definitely need someone to help you into the dress. The bow in the back is very pretty, but held together with about 6 snaps that is physically impossible to close yourself. So don't rent this dress if you're getting ready alone!!!

Love the bow detail on the back.

The fit for the most part was true to size. The straps were a little long and I had to mess with them to make sure they stayed up during the night. Even with heels the dress was long but I wasn't willing to wear super high heels. Overall a beautiful dress that was comfortable and got lots of compliments. The bow detail on the back is really lovely.

Amazing night! Loved this dress. Definitely different than what I normally go for.

I am 5’8 and went with the extra length but wore 4-5in heals. If you’re not going to wear high heals, you may not want the extra length. The 4L fit okay but I was able to wear the 2L without a bra. It was pretty tight right around my bra line area when sitting down but rest of the dress was very flowy.

This dress will make you feel like the belle of the ball!

Perfect for a southern black tie event! Loved the weight, A-line shape, and the weighted hem (no Spank necessary and no wrinkles after I left it hanging a day before the event). Perfect length with heels on. Felt more special and elegant than all of the solid bodycon/cut-out dresses you see these days. Highly recommend.

I received many compliments on this dress at the black tie event I attended.

This dress is so gorgeous, the photos don't do it justice. I would have never picked it out on my own but the stylist at my Chicago RTR location was so helpful and gave me so many fun and interesting choices and helped guide me in finding a dress that fit my style and the event. The fabric on this dress is beautiful, it looks very expensive and the bow detail on the back is very cute but not cutesy.

It was a beautiful dress.

Very long - I am 5'2 and the regular length dress was so long, I had to tape it up about 4 inches and the tape came off during the night. It was beautiful and I received many compliments.

Great dress!

So many compliments on this dress. I'm 5'8" and got the 6L because it was the only one available - I tripped on it maybe twice but it was WORTH IT! Bonus points for the BOW IN BACK!

Meh. It was ok.

I probably would have ended up wearing this dress because it was my primary rental - if my free second style hadn’t knocked it out of the park. It fit ok, not great. And it was cute, but not a showstopper.

The back of the dress was even better. So sad I forgot to get a picture of it

The straps were pretty tight and the bust has limited space.
