Tons of compliments. And I felt great. It was comfortable!
I'm usually closer to 0 but needed the 2. I wore the long with heels and it was perfect. I'm 5'11. Zipper was sticky around seams. I needed a strapless bra but it was tight so no slipping. I'm a 32A/AA so bra was for padding only.

This dress was perfect for my jr prom
I wore this dress to my Junior prom and it was wonderful, although it was long and I had to wear high heels with it and it was a little big around the waist, I believe I just got a size to big. This dress was so pretty in person and I got lots of compliments for it.

Didnt end up wearing this one.
The dress itself runs a little small for larger busted ladies, but the length is super long - too long for me to wear.

RTR STYLIST REVIEW
This dress is definitely one of a kind! It the perfect gown for a formal affair. It is subtle yet beautifully stated. The painted print is perfectly located and makes you feel regal. The dress fits true to size but has no stretch at all. There is a natural waist on this dress, I would say that is the only tighter park of the dress. Definitely rent this gown for your next special event.

I wore this at a formal banquet and have never received so many compliments for a dress before!
The fit of the dress was pretty true to size. I like dresses that have a tighter fit up top, but usually with that it means that it is hard to move around. With this dress, however, even with it being tight, it was still easy to move around! The only issue I had with this dress was that the zipper was a little messed up so it took a little bit of time to get on, but other than that it was great. The only thing I would mention is it was just long enough for my feet to be covered in flats, so if you like heels, your feet might show a bit.

This dress was gorgeous! So many compliments on how dashing my husband and I looked!
I am a small woman, and this dress fit perfectly with the right pair of heels. I did have to keep pulling it up to walk long distances, but that's typical for me. The bust was larger than I had expected and I had to pin the straps up to get it to a size where my boobs weren't falling out. However, I would 100% wear this dress again. It was beautiful and wonderful and fit the occasion perfectly!

Comfortable and fun
The dress was a bit large in the bust for me. It was also extremely long - an 8L - sent at the last minute by RTR because my voices choices were washouts. That said, wearing this dress was a blast. All night I had strangers coming up, asking me to spread the skirt so they could see the design, gushing about the simplicity of the dress and originality of the print. This dress was also darn comfy to wear. I felt like a million bucks.

Interesting
I had to order this has the original back-up dress I ordered wasn't able to be shipped and this was one of the few options left in my size at short notice. This dress is heaaaaaaaaaavvvy. It definitely wasn't going to work for a summer wedding in southern California. But, I could see it being worn to a nighttime gala later in the year and being perfect. It seemed like it ran large, huge in the waist. With the styling of this dress the fit is important as it looks really unpolished if it's baggy so be mindful of that.

beautiful event in a beautiful location, celebrating my best friend
definitely great for a busty woman who wants to show off a small waist! fits larger-chests, though def shows off cleavage. everyone complimented me on the dress, and how unique it was. i felt like a million bucks in it, and didn't stress about how i looked while giving the groom's toast (he's my best friend). my one gripe, and the reason it's 4 stars and not 5, is that zipper is terrible. the dress fit perfectly, but still took 2 people to get the last 3 inches of the zipper to go up. there's a bend in the zipper that makes it really tough

Too long
I love the design but had to return because of the length of the dress. I'm 5'7 tall, and usually rent Long length, but this Long length was way too long. I'm waiting to receive Regular length now (thank you for the great customer service!!) Oh yes, the zipper was very tricky. I could turn the dress back to the front but I wasn't able to zipper the all way up.... I hope the next dress I'm receiving has a smooth zipper!

Elegant and classic!
Loved this dress, so elegant! I received compliments all night long! Fit great, no bra needed. I did have to wear 3 inch heels because of the length. The zipper is difficult to zip up and it broke when trying to unzip at the end of the night. RTR customer service was great about it.

Gorgeous material and fit!
This is a gorgeous dress, perfect for a black tie affair. I'm 5'4", 113 lbs, and the size 2 was the closest fit. It was a bit long, and I should have used hem tape. I also have a wide rib cage, so it was a bit snug there too. Otherwise wonderful dress!

Gorgeous and Elegant
I rented this for a Gala I attend for my job (we are sponsors for an event and the gala is a MAJOR part of it). I was nervous about the dress as the size 8L was the only one left and I've never fit into an 8 before, but the dress fit perfectly. I got so many compliments about the dress (the calla lily printed on the skirt was a huge hit) and I felt fabulous. It did start to get a little tight at the waist towards the end of the night (but I had eaten a 4 course meal so that's probably why). The only real con to the dress I found was the zipper, which a few others have mentioned in their reviews so I was prepared going into it. It is definitely a zipper someone else needs to zip for you, at least right at the seam on the waist. The dress fabric is very thick right there and it took some gentle tugging to get it up. Luckily, I was dressing at a coworker's home so her husband could zip it for me because there was no zipping it on my own.

Can I give this dress 10 stars?!
This. Dress. It was not my first choice, I had to have it overnighted when my first didn't work out. It is true to size, but very long. I definitely would've been better off with the 6R. Despite being insanely long, it was so beautiful. I received more compliments than I can count. I didn't want the night to end!

Fabulous gown, super flattering
Fit was flattering, but very long. I had to gather it up to walk normally, but found I was able to dance as long as I kept moving! Boning up the side kept the fit tight, but was a bit uncomfortable when seated as it poked into my side below the armpit. Didn't wear a bra (couldn't have) but the fit was close enough to not be revealing. I felt like a princess and got compliments all night long. Would rent again.

Pretty - a bit small, a touch heavy
The 10R was a bit smaller than a "usual" size 10. The zipper was difficult to zip over the seam in the back. The dress was heavier (a lot of material in the skirt) if it was to be worn on a hot summer day. Still a very elegant gown, but just ran a bit small and was heavier than expected.

One for the Tall Ladies!
Ok tall ladies, this one is for you. I am just over 6' tall and struggle with finding formal dresses that are long enough. I ordered an 8L in this dress and was able to wear it with two inch heels - victory! It is a very elegant dress and was perfect for a black tie event. Cons: As other people have noted, the zipper got a little stuck, but we were able to fix it pretty easily. Also I wasn't thrilled with the seams hit me at the bust but decided it wasn't too bad.

I received compliments on this dress all night!
The fit was true to size, and the material was just *luscious*. It had such a nice weight to it! I wore this dress while standing, sitting, eating and dancing...and it stayed exactly where it was supposed to all night - no creeping or binding in odd places while doing any of these things. It paired beautifully with the necklace I rented (from RTR as well), and the backless stick on bra worked perfectly with the dress! Overall, an amazing first experience.

Beautiful dress for black tie event
Was a little bit long, even though I am 5'7" with three inch heels. I kept tripping over the skirt. Bodice was a little tight and the zipper was hard to zip up at the waist. But it was a stand out dress- received many compliments on it.

Beautiful flow to the gown
Absolutely beautiful dress. My only complaint was it was a bit smaller in the torso so when I sat down, the straps over the shoulders wouldn't sit properly and had a big gap. I really liked that it was long enough for me to still wear 3in heels and have the dress brush the floor.

Great dress for a black tie work party!
This dress was absolutely gorgeous. I didn't want to go all black and the flower gave just this additional pop. I am 5'6" and wore 3" heels and the dress was just the perfect length. The only reason why I did not give 5 stars is because of the bust. The dress did not allow me to wear a bra (I could not have zip it up AND you would see the strap in the back) and it squeezed my breast, my 34C disappeared. So if you have a large bust, be careful.

Didn't wear, but it is a beautiful gown.
The fit was small for a 4R at the waist, but it zipped fine without undergarments. This dress is appropriate for a very, very special occasion...the amount of fabric in the skirt (very significant) just made it too fancy for even the evening wedding I will be attending. I would suggest this for a Gala or Inaugural Ball.

Definitely classic
This was definitely a classic, mature dress. I loved the material and simple yet impressive design. I do wish it was a bit tighter across the waist and upper body to give me more of an hourglass shape and hold my girls a little more. All in all though the dress was true to size and a perfect length with my heels. Brushed the floor just enough to not trip me but to still be flowy.

The dress has a beautiful cut and weight to it. It was right across my ribs, so I worn the 8r for comfort. I loved it, and had so many complements.
