I received so many compliments, plus bonus Pockets!
I wore this for the regional Emmys and I felt elegant and pretty. I got so many compliments on the dress. My favorite part was the pockets. I was able to keep my phone with me (but hidden) while I was on stage. The fabric was great quality and not too thick for a summer affair. The only thing I wasn't crazy about was how the neckline gapped a bit. I'm only 5'4 so I'm guessing the design was for someone a bit taller than me. Still looked great and I was comfortable all evening.

Gorgeous gown for black tie wedding!
This gown was even prettier in person and I felt amazing wearing it. It was perfect for the city black tie wedding I went to. I am definitely a petite pear shape and the sizing was a little tricky but manageable. I rented the 4R and 2R and wore the 2R. The waist was tight on both of them mainly because of the lack of stretch in the fabric and the beaded belt feature. I have a very small chest so I didn't wear a bra and needed the 2R for the top, both tops ran very big, but if you have a bigger chest I'm sure it wouldn't be an issue. I wore 4" heels and still had to fashion tape the hem but it was fine to dance in all night.

I rented this for a Black Tie Wedding and it was fantastic!
I loved this dress! I felt so dignified and black Tie appropriate. It was true to size except the back was a little loose. It needs someone long in the torso. I got the regular so it stopped just above my shoes. I received endless compliments it was an amazing dress!

Beautiful dress! Felt like a princess! So many compliments!
Dress is baggy where back straps meet waistline and under armpits, but you can totally get away with it. So comfortable, so flattering, so beautiful, so elegant.

Gorgeous dress
I wore this for a gala. I ordered the 4P and 6P vs regular bc I'm 5'0 in stature. I gained weight since my last rental and the dress was perfect for not bringing attention to my problem areas. It was tight around the beaded band area but I received SOOOOO many compliments that night I didn't care! I'm big chested last time I was measured I was a 34D but I'm more like a 34DD

Pockets make the dress
For starters this is an overall good dress, very pretty, did get compliments on it, but I personally had a few issues. First, length, in the pictures of the model it covers her feet, as expected of a long formal dress. I am 5'7" so not that tall, I ordered the Regular length because I was wearing this to a formal event as a volunteer, so I knew I would be on my feet most of the night. It was SHORT, it hit my at my ankles, so no hiding my shoes. Ultimately it didn't stop my from wearing the dress, but it was disappointing. So if you want it to cover your feet, order a Long. Second issue was with the fit, while the waist fit perfect, runs to size, the top does not. I am a 36C/D and the top was loose on me. I found myself adjusting/checking throughout the night to make sure nothing was falling out. Overall I would still recommend this dress, just wanted to give everyone a fair warning of what to expect.

Really a show stopper!
Love the dress! It fit great, although a bit difficult to get into. The zipper on the side can be a bit difficult to zip (even when on the hanger, the zipper itself is just difficult to zip). This dress is a show stopper for sure though. It makes such a great statement and I had tons of compliments.

Classic & elegant dress
The fit was great, I felt gorgeous. It definitely hid the bit of baby weight in the stomach I haven't quite lost yet . Overall stunning dress. Negative was I could not wear a bra and the chest area at times looked awkward.

Big on top
This was very pretty and perfect for a black tie event. However, the top was very big and didn't look great. And the zipper was almost impossible to get up. My husband and I almost broke our fingers and we're completely frustrated.

Beautiful and stunning! I received several compliments.
This dress is just classic and beautiful. I wore it to a gala. I've never done a dress that exposed my back, but it was just the right amount of exposed back. The top was large, there were areas that buckled. I used tape to hold the shape in front.

Didn't feel comfortable in this dress.
Like some of the other reviews stated, the dress was tight around the waist and too loose at the top. The straps folded at the back of the dress. I am 5'2 and normally dresses are very long, I had to buy lower heels to fit this dress.

Gala with a keynote speech from a former US President
This was not my first, second, or third choice dress for my gala. When my original order arrived, it didn't contain any of the dresses I ordered, and luckily there was this one Monique Lhullier left that they were able to overnight to me. The stylist on the phone just described it to me and I said I'd go for it! It was a little big in the top (Im a 36b), but the length and fit in the waist were perfect. The open back was the best part of the dress, and I received lots of compliments. It was comfortable despite the Georgia humidity, and I felt elegant.

Perfect for a gala
I purposely ordered the 4P in this dress so I didn't have to wear heels and it worked perfectly! I'm 5'3, 135lbs and it came right to the ground, not too long and not too short. The there was a little extra room in the back area where it puckered out a bit, but nothing a little fashion tape or safety pin can't fix!

Great event!! Lots of fun
This was a great dress- lots of compliments. The side zipper was very hard to zip up on my own. I normally wear between a 10 and 12. Needed to up to a 14 and still had some trouble.

Fits me well. Good choice for a pear body-shape. Delivery system could have been better. ( 2 friends of mine did not receive their dresses on time. I had to pick it up at the delivery center to avoid the risk.)

So CHIC!
I absolutely loved this dress! It was the perfect fit for a formal wedding. So many compliments... I'm usually a size 4, but in this case, it was a little large at the top, so I opted for the size 2. RTR never disappoints! :)

My partner was the main organizer of this event, so it was great to have a dress to match his tux!
It is a stunning dress and I received lots of compliments. Both the 10L and 12L fit nicely, but I opted for the 10L since it was a better fit in the waist (12 was a bit loose). I only wish it were a little bit longer so it could graze the floor - I wore ballet flats and the dress was still an inch or two off the floor. That said, I am 6ft tall, so the L would be just fine for most people. It may be a bit tight in the bust for larger-chested ladies.

Beautiful formal event on the beach - this was the perfect dress for the occassion!
Absolutely loved this dress! I rented it for a formal event on the beach, and I got so many compliments! The open back was gorgeous and airy - since the rest of the dress is a bit thick, I wasn't too hot or too cold. I usually wear a 4R but decided to also get the 2R as a backup, and then I ended up wearing the 2R anyway because it just fit better in general. It was a little loose in the bust area but fit very well everywhere else, and the length was perfect with 3in heels! The dress was stunning, comfortable, and did I mention it has pockets?? This was my first time using RTR and it did not disappoint! Would definitely recommend.

It was a last minute rental for a friend who wound up being the belle of the ball in this dress.
It was a little large in the upper bust with a 16 but it didn't compromise the overall look. The pockets were awesome and the details and fabric made this dress simply stunning.

I rented this for my best friend's prom and it fit perfectly. It was gaping a little on the sides but it really was not noticeable. The length of the dress was perfect ( I am 5'4 & wore 4 inch heels). Overall, I am was so happy with this rental & would rent it again! So beautiful & I loved the back!

Classically elegant dress that is so flattering!
I wore this to a black tie wedding and it was so classically elegant. I received so many compliments and loved the back of the dress (sorry the pic does not show). I am more curvy on the bottom so I found this dress to be very flattering as well.

The dress was amazing. Great material and quality. Great cut and look!
The only reason I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the front of the dress wasn't quite form fitting. I am small chested so it felt like there was a lot of fabric moving around all the time.

Classic beauty with a twist.
Wore the dress for my senior prom, and loved it. It's a great piece for someone who is very classic, but loves pops of interesting details. For this dress it was the cutout back and the pockets that got me. The fit was great, and comfortable, even in 80+ degree heat.

True to size, but a little big in places
Dress was true to size. However, it was a little big under the arms and on the back where the straps meet the black material. It was almost too short, so if you're over 5'6 I would recommend getting the long.

This dress was perfect for a local ball we attended in our town.
The top did run a little large so I sized down to the 2. Was the perfect length with the heels I wore. I did notice some of the black beading color was rubbing off and appeared bronze in person, but other than that the dress was in good shape. I loved the pockets! I did not wear a bra with this since the back was open but I do wish the top had a built in bra or some sort of support, as I was nervous the white could be seen through. But overall, I loved the dress - it was beautiful and perfect for the occasion.

This dress was so beautiful and I felt beautiful in it! I got tons of compliments. The fabric is good quality and the pockets are awesome! You can't wear a bra with it so I had to use bandaids so nothing "showed through" lol! I am 5'7 - I wore short heels and the long size was a perfect length. I would highly recommend this dress and RTR in general. Great experience!

Everything I wanted it to be!
I absolutely loved everything about this dress. The good: fits great, gorgeous design, high-qulity material, very flattering. The pockets were a game-changer! The bad: a little difficult to get on. I highly recommend this dress. Got a ton of compliments on it. I can't say enough good things about this one! I got the 6L and the length was perfect on me- I'm 5' 7" and wore 3" heels. The bottom hem was about 1/4" off the ground with heels on.

This dress was truly beautiful, but tough if you have a large chest.
I actually ended up letting a friend borrow it because I had two dresses and only needed one. I love this, but I couldn't wear a bra with it because of the open back, and it wasn't supportive enough. the sides near the armpit were coming out in a triangle shape. It looked great on her though!

Gorgeous, fun dress!
This dress is very flattering and so much fun - with sassy pockets and a great flared skirt! Unfortunately, there really is no way to wear a bra with this dress and, as a 32H, no amount of fashion tape could make up for the need for a bra, so I felt uncomfortable and unsupported all night. There is some excess fabric on the straps on the back - it was challenging to get them to sit just right - but overall the fit is very flattering, and if I could get away without a bra, I would wear this dress again.

Very tasteful
I wore this to a gala that was held by clients. This dress was flattering and tasteful. If you are looking for a conservative formal gown, this it! And, it has pockets!! The four fit me, but it was tight right at the waits band and since there was a lot of sitting at the event I opted to wear the 6. But I did feel like the 4 looked more flattering.

Stunning, feminine, glamorous!
Originally I had rented a Marchesa dress for this black tie gala and it didn't work for me. RTR is my favorite and I am an unlimited client as well as I rent in addition for specific events. RTR sent me this dress as a backup and I instantly LOVED it! The fabric is high quality and felt luxurious. The cris cross back was a splendid touch. The length and pockets were perfect with a 4" plus platform heel. My boyfriend and strangers gave me compliments all night. I highly recommend this dress! And as always I am most grateful to RTR for their incredible customer service!
