This dress was sent, bc my other selection was not available.
This dress was sent as an alternative to one I selected. It didn't match what I was needing. But, I tried it on. With the style of the back, it would be tough for a bustier woman (34G) to wear. I needed some sort of support with this cut. The length was perfect for my almost 6' height and fit like a glove on my frame. Would consider this for future with proper undergarments.

Where did the hem of the dress fall on you (did it reach the floor) and were you wearing heels? I'm 5'11 and considering renting this, but I'd want to wear approx. 2 inch heels.

Stylist Review
Dark lovely lace! This ML Monique Lhuillier gown runs true to size and we recommend sizing up for backup. There is ample room in the bust, but with the open back it's necessary to go bra-less or wear a NuBra. It may also be necessary to use fashion tape to avoid gaping on the sides for smaller busts. With no stretch to the fabric and a tighter fit in the bodice and hips consider sizing up for fuller hips. At 5'7" the long-length worked well with 2 inch heels. Pair with statement earrings.

Very sexy dress
This dress was sent to me after a dress wasn't going to make it in for my event. Picked out by a RTR stylist. This dress is so sexy I loved the back! Also has a small train in back. Reason I didn't wear it was the overall fit of the dress. I wear a 36c and had soo much side boob and the straps were too big, I couldn't even zip up the zipper it ran a bit small. And showed a little too much skin for the event I was attending. This is the only picture I could snag up. So I apologize.

Unforgettable Dress
This dress was selected by RTR because the dress I wanted was unavailable. I couldn't have been happier with their choice! The color is beautiful. The dress was slightly big on top, but nothing to be concerned about.

Amazing dress, and easy to wear! I loved how I looked at the party.
The dress is very comfortable but it runs large. I'm 128 lbs and 32C, and normally wear a 4-6 dress size, but the 4 was large and I had to have RTR overnight the size 2. The size 2 fit perfectly! It was an amazing dress, and I loved wearing it.

Very comfortable and fit great, got lots of compliments.
The biggest issue was the train - there was no way to tack it up and it kept getting stepped on. I almost fell over a few times because someone would be standing on it as I tried to walk in another direction.

The blue is such a rich color I felt like I stood out in a sea of black dresses.
This is NOT meant for curvy girls. This dress is meant for a figure with more chest and less bottom than I have. I ordered the size of my bottom and one size up. The size of my bottom allowed the dress to hug my curves perfectly, the size up was too loose. I had to pin down the straps on top as I could not fill out the top (34D). The back was open down to my waist, which I adored, but does not allow for ANY chest support. This dress also has a small train. This caused the front of the dress to be a little shorter than I would have preferred. I am 5'4" and wore 2.5 inch heel, the front of the dress was about an inch above the ground. Thankfully I had beautiful shoes on so I didn't mind showing them off! This dress is also FIVE LAYERS! Oh did I get hot while dancing! Overall, this dress is stunning in person and made me feel red carpet beautiful.

Gorgeous Gown
The dress fit like a glove and looked absolutely stunning. At 5'6", plus heels, the regular length was a touch short for me, but I had guessed that would be the case from the info on the web site. The long version wasn't available for my event. It was fine, though. In this dress, no one was looking at my feet.

Perfect for the military ball in AC
This dress was sent to me due to my original pick being damaged. Overall it looked great. I'm 5'2 and my heels periodically got stuck in the train, Not a big deal. No give in the fabric. Runs true to size. The straps were big so I had to pin them. Got tons of compliments.

Gorgeous gown that is incredibly flattering
This was a back-up sent by RTR as my original choice was damaged or late. I loved this gown so much, I rented it again for another event 2 weeks later.

Not for girls with hips
One of two backups selected by RTR since original back up was unavailable. Beautiful and admired by friends who also tried on, but not the dress for girls with hips and booty.
