Beautiful gown!

I loved wearing this dress. The fit was fairly true to size but maybe just at tad small. I am usually a 4-6 and the 6 was snug on me. I actually would have considered the 8 for more room in the torso but the top would have been too roomy. You cannot raise your arms very high in this dress so its not the best for dancing but it sure is beautiful! It has pockets and is a great color! It was great for a black tie dinner.

Beautiful dress, tons of compliments!

I loved the look of the dress on site snd in person! I was very happy with the color. Another review mentioned the restricting off fhe shoulder sleeve and id have to agree it was chalenging to work with. I had trouble dancing and eating because i couldnt really life my arms very high. The skirt was very full snd a little cumbersom. I wore this dress for a charity gala and recieved many compliements though :) Althought very tight in the arms, plenty of room in the waist and thighs! The 2L fit but was really long. At 5'7" the R was really the correct size for me, I was still able to wear the 0 with 2" heels! Overall happy with rental but beware upper body restriction for the evening!

Small but gorgeous

The dress was a little small in the bust since there is absolutely no stretch. It was amazing though for my event and gorgeous in person. Also runs a little longer, which made it difficult to walk

Flowy & Classy -With Pockets!!

I wore this gown when there was only ONE review saying not to get it because the sleeves kept your arms glued to your sides. Well. She was right. BUT! I still wanted it and I made due by tucking the sleeves into my armpits (nobody could tell) and it made for a killer strapless gown! Here are the pros and cons of this dress-- PROS: The color is a rich merlot wine color that looks absolutely stunning. It has delicious flow to it and as a 5'10" woman I could wear heels and it was still long. Woot!! The pockets rule. The boning on the boddess is sturdy and helps you feel supported. As a 34F I chose the 10L over the 8 (see cons) and still wore a bra under it. CONS: The material, while thick, is itchy and I had absolutely zero give/ stretch. I am normally a 6-8 but I have big lungs and chest and could barely breathe let alone zip up the 8 -- so I went with the 10. But by the end of the night the 10 had stretched some and I was wishing for the 8. I also needed to wear spanx under just so the dress wouldn't itch. And then there's the sleeves. There was just no way of wearing them for an evening --when you DO move your arms it pulls on the material across your chest and is oh so unflattering....so plan on doing the tuck like I did! Overall it's still an absolutely gorgeous gown- just needs a few adjustments here and there to make it work. :)

Built in Bra-like support!

I rented this gown for some formal engagement photos and it did not let me down! I wish I had a real function to attend with this dress because it had pockets. Also, being on the bustier side, I was nervous about a strapless bra, but I didn't even need one and I felt super supported. I also wasn't constantly pulling it up! It is stunning and I felt like royalty! This gown will not dissapoint!

My favorite dress of all time!

This dress was gorgeous! I wore it for a play called Rumors and I was Claire Ganz. I originally order the 16W and 18W but the 16 was a little loose so I had them ship me the 14W and it fit me perfectly. Definitely if its a wide size I would order your usual size and the size down. The 16W fit but the 14W was absolutely perfect. The dress cinches in at the waist and flares out. I love love LOVE this dress and would definitely rent it again.

A real princess dress, if you don't mind not lifting your arms much!

The dress was lovely! Im glad I ordered a backup size in a 10 (I'm normally an 8), as there was no way I could have fit into the 8. The biggest con about this dress is the restricted upper body movement--I could not lift my arms even above my chest in this dress, but as long as you're not at an event that involves dancing, you'll be fine! Also, I'm 5'5" and the regular length was way too long, but I solved that with some of the temporary hem tape that is RTR approved.

I got several compliments on my dress! The fit was great.

I am 5'7 and 140 lbs. I loved this dress! The arms were restricting but well worth it. I probably could have gotten away with wearing the regular instead of long with shorter heels because I would occasionally step on the front of the dress when walking. I usually wear a 6 but because of the aline style a 4 fit perfectly around my waist. The color is beautiful and richer in person. The pockets were handy too!

Beautiful formal dress

Beautiful dress, runs a bit small so size up. You can not use your arms in this dress but too pretty to care. Like you can't reach for the salt and pepper. Great rental.

Fits true to size. Did need help zipping the back due to the sleeves not allowing my arms to be super flexible. Gorgeous wine color. So festive. Perfect for Christmas/winter.

This dress was glamorous and amazing. The pocketd are just a plus to all of that. I felt amazing in this dress. It doesnt stretch which is why I recommend sizing up especially if you have a large ribcage. I would absolutely recommend this dress to anyone!

Felt amazing in this! Definitely runs a size large, usually wear a 16, went with the 14. Has a wonderful internal waist fastener so you can carry the weight of the dress balanced between waist and shoulders. Got so many compliments!

Was fabulous except for the zipper

Got this dress for my older sister to wear to a formal event, and it looked divine on her. It was true to her usual formal dress size, as she's a plus size beauty, and we were so excited. Minus a zipper disaster, this dress was fabulous.

Beautiful but hard to zip!!!

This dress received so many compliments!! The color is stunning. However the zipper is IMPOSSIBLE to zip (on both the sizes I rented) and after I had 2 people try to zip me for 30 mins I eventually zipped it up off my body and pulled it over my head. Also, this dress is meant for someone with larger breasts than mine. All in all, I would recommend this dress!

I got this for a very good price, and it worked perfectly

The dress was absolutely beautiful and I was sad to see it go. I wore 3.5" heels and the length was perfect. I felt like a Disney princess. The only cons, however, were that the sleeves were very tight, so I could not dance as well as I would have liked, and for less-than-busty girls like me, the top was at a risk of falling the entire night (it didn't thankfully). However, with these in mind, I would still recommend the dress.

Not the best picture, but this was comfy and flattering!

This was the dress I hoped would work out and it did! It has pockets, the sleeves didn't bother me at all and it didn't highlight my stomach which was my main concern! It was also very flattering to my large chest and I didn't have to pull up the dress all night!

Long and flowy, fun to dance in

True to size. Color does change in lighting. When it arrived felt it was too plain. Wore with silver and diamond accessories and it went from plain to formal/elegant. Fit like a glove! Had so much fun dancing in it. Felt like a true ball gown. Sweat and water resistant!

Super pretty!

Pros: Gorgeous color and fit. A stand-out dress that got many compliments! Also, pockets!! Cons: It was a little long for me as I'm 5'3 and wore 3 inch heels and still had to pick it up when walking. Also there is definitely arm movement restrictions. Overall, the length and movement restrictions couldn't overrule the beauty of this dress! Loved it!

Too big!

When I found this dress, it immediately caught my eye and I knew it was the one for my event. I read that it runs large so I got a 14 instead of my usual 16. It came the day I chose and it was a beautiful gown but it was waaayyy too big and I didn't get to wear it. Thank god I purchased a different dress the day before.

Princess for the night!

This dress made me feel like a princess! It's simple so it definitely needed the decorative belt. The color is stunning and elegant. However, the zipper gets stuck where the skirt and bodice meet and so another person was needed for the extra elbow grease to zip it. Also since I'm quite flat-chested, the bust looked a bit weird. Overall, I would definitely recommend this dress if you want to look elegant without being too loud.

Best decision I made for prom

So i ha dang prom this weekend but didn't want to drop $300 dollars on a dress i'll wear once so i decided to rent one. It was so perfect i loved the dress (IT HAS POCKETS!?!?!) and i felt great all night i'm a size 20 usually so it went well with being true to size but the top of the dress felt a little loose so it was hard to move my arms around a lot but i absolutely would rent this dress again and will probably rent my dress again for next years prom

The most formal of formal?

It's a beautiful dress and it fit well, but it just wasn't quite right for me or my event. If I were a bridesmaid in a formal wedding, I would love to wear this. Maybe great for a gala or a ball? I am going to a more standard formal affair and the dress is just too much of a ball gown for that.

Rented for prom, didn't fit

After reading the reviews I decided to go up a size because everyone said that it ran small on the arms. I am normally an 18 W so I ordered a 20 W and it was huge! The top part of the dress was about three sizes too big and very saggy. I also ordered the long and even with 3" heels I was still tripping over it and I am 5'9". Although the color is very pretty it is darker in person than in the pictures. Lastly the top part was very pointy and it wasn't in the spot where my boobs actually were.

Runs pretty big

I sized up just wanting to make sure that I wouldn't have to worry about the waist being too tight and it was literally falling off me. I normally wear an 18, and I ordered a 20 and my mom could gather like 3 inches of fabric in the back. I would have needed at least a 16 but maybe a 14 for the best fit. The dress was gorgeous though. The color was deep and pretty and the neckline is so classic AND it has pockets. Would definitely recommend but order your backup size a size down not up.

Pretty but a bit heavy

I wasn't a fan of the restricted arm use. The draping shoulder straps weren't very comfortable, in my opinion.

Curvy girl friendly!

The dress was absolutely gorgeous in person! Simple and elegant. It came pretty wrinkled but a quick blow with my hair dryer got the wrinkles out pretty fast. I wore this dress to prom and felt relatively comfortable the whole night. The shoulders had enough give and didn't squeeze me. As you can see, it wasn't the longest dress but the 20Long was not available. Considering I'm 6ft, the length was pretty decent, and didn't look too awkward. Happy to have felt like a princess for my junior prom in this dress. Well worth the money. :)

Beautiful gown!

Dress is absolutely stunning. It has pockets and a built in bra! I was worried it would run small based on other reviews so I ordered a size up. I'd say it runs true to size. It was too big for me, but I'm going to try the next size down.

Dress is majestic!!

I wore this dress to an Indian wedding and i fit in perfectly! Although most invited guests chose to wear sarees, I wanted to pick a gown that would match the vibrant colors but still represent me and this gown did just that! It was phenomenally comfortable! As someone who is top heavy, I was afraid that I would spill out of it but I did not! It held me in quite nicely. I got compliments all throughout the evening and felt like a princess! I should have gone a size below but it still worked perfectly!!! #Highlyrecommend

Beautiful color and silhouette

I don't have the smallest arms, but please consider that the fabric does not have any give at all and that you'll arms will need to be at your sides for photos if you don't want the arm bulge. The pockets were so nice to have- I don't like purses. The color was beautiful and the fabric is really gorgeous. Make sure you have a steamer after you unpack it. Size up if you like to eat at your event. Breathing became an issue towards the end of the evening.

The pockets tho

The pros to this dress are that it's super pretty and a darker color than the picture and the pockets. The only con was how restrictive the arms were but otherwise it was completely fine.

Can't move your arms!

Don't plan on doing anything if you wear this dress. This pic shows how little I could move my arm. If you plan on dancing or have a child to pick up, do not rent this! The boobs are pointy because of the darting. The flowing fabric is beautiful. The volume is just right. The color is delicious. But everything else was bad and I couldn't wear it.
