Team RTR Review
Great fabric and color! The fitted boned bodice keeps dress in place and can be worn with or with out a strapless bra. The high lo cut its nice length on short girls too!

Beautiful color!! So many compliments all night
Loved this dress, I felt amazing while wearing it. I have a 36DD bust and it was slightly snug but not overwhelming. Definitely comfortable.

Stylist Review
Beautiful color! Would definitely recommend sizing up as it was very fitted at the bust (34B for reference) . The fuller skirt allows comfortable room for a curvier woman, and could even be a great bump-friendly option. There is built in support, so a bra is not necessary. At 5'8" the highest point hit right below my knee. Great option for a day to night event!

Standout dress
This dress was a replacement as the style I originally ordered wasn't available. It arrived with the tags still on! The fabric of this dress is rich and crisp and the color is beautiful. The asymmetrical skirt makes it just a little bit different and it has pockets! It was a little bit small in the bust for me and I wore a strapless bra, however the bodice has a built in bra and enough structure that a less chesty gal would probably be fine. Comfortable enough to dance the night away and the skirt had just enough poof. All in all, this was a great replacement.

Not for big bust!
This is a beautiful dress with a striking color. The waist fit great, but being a big busted gal, the top squished everything all together. Not for me.

Beautiful, unique dress. Great fit!
I got so many compliments on this dress. It was a little long in the back for me (I'm 5'5"), but otherwise it was great. I'm usually not comfortable in strapless dresses, but the top of this one was structured so well I didn't have to fidget with it all night. The color and texture of the dress are really amazing too!

Great fit and tons of complements
I was afraid this dress would hit me in a weird spot as the model in the picture was very tall- but it fit perfectly! I am 5'8 and the front of the dress fell right above my knee. The fabric is thick enough where the shape stayed elegant all night. I am a 4 and the 4 fit perfectly. The color was absolutely amazing and really stuck out from the crowd. Would order again!

Runs small in the bust
Loved the look of the dress but it was too small in the chest. A size up might have worked, but I think it may have been too large through the waist.

I wore this for my graduation and it was perfect for under my robe.
The fit was perfectly true to size and although it is a strapless dress, I didn't have to tug on it throughout the day! The lower hemline in the back made me feel regal and the weight of the dress was very high quality. Overall, I was very pleased with this and wish that I had taken a picture in it without the robe on top!

Striking color and fabric making for a stunning dress
Beautiful heavy fabric with great raised flower texture. I am smaller chested, but the bodice has boning and it was quite supportive and quite tight- so tight, I couldn't take a deep breath, but it was fine.

Fabulous!
I LOVED wearing this dress. It was a touch too big but the built in bra secured all the way helped a lot. I'm very busty, 36DDD in VS sizes. I felt secure, and comfortable. I wore tight shorts underneath so that helped with the wire boning. Received so many compliments. Another girl was wearing the same dress and we kept complimenting each other on having great taste. Overall it was wonderful! Highly recommend this dress! Note: I wore this dress in 16R. The gladiolus 16R was nowhere close to fitting. Be aware, same designer, 5 inch difference for the "same" size of two dresses very, very similar in style. *******Below is a RTR review. For the service of the company during this entire experience I give them ONE star only.****** This dress was my backup, my first choice was the Pink ML Galiolus, I ordered size 14R and 16R, neither fit, but what was puzzling was that the 16 and 14 fit exactly the same. The 16 wasn't at all bigger. I tried the size 14R at the RTR Chicago location, I needed a half an inch of room, the stylist assured me that the 16 would definitely fit, I've been losing weight so I ordered the 14 just in case. I've lost 10 lbs and one size in the one month since that fitting. After I tried the pink one of I called RTR, the girl wasn't very trusting of my feedback. I wanted to at least receive a full refund for the Gladiolus and then pay full price rental for the this teal dress (which was cheaper) Instead she refunded me $30 for backup rental. She was also very confused about how much I paid for each dress but wouldn't listen to me correcting her. She also kept saying that she's tried on all of these dresses and that a girl with boobs as big as mine should never order the gladiolus dress because it runs small, had I read the reviews I would know that. Never mind that I tried on the dress at the RTR store with a stylist!! I'm very disappointed with the service I received and her lack of trust in me or the fact that my rental was initiated by a RTR stylist at a physical location. I think the Gladiolus dress size 16 was mismarked or defective. I know that brand tags fall off and could have easily been sewn on the wrong dress. I didn't have time to call back to speak to someone else, I just wanted to get off the phone. Not sure if I will use RTR again after this experience. I wonder what would have happened if none of the dresses fit.

Beautiful Dress
This dress is even prettier in person, I got so many compliments on it and someone even bought it. It's very comfortable and fits true to size if not a tad bit small. I can usually go between a 0 and 2 and a 0 in this would have been way to small. The 2 was snug enough to not need to be pulled up all night (something I struggle with in other strapless dresses).

unique color, texture, and great shape!
(Sorry for the powder room selfie!) I wore this to a wedding last weekend as a part of Unlimited plan.It was a spectacular vibrant turquoise color with a noticeably textured flower pattern. The dress was perfect for my pear shape! It is a little heavy of a fabric, but felt like a good quality material. There's an extra bra-like clasp in the back that was great security I was not going to pop out of this dress no matter how hard I danced. I wore my hair up, but regretted it as it looked a little prom/Audrey hepburn like. I paired with black heels as they looked the best vs nude. I'd definitely order this again (and in the multiple other it comes in.) Gorgeous!

I loved this dress! I received countless compliments and felt gorgeous.
The pockets were deep enough to carry the essentials. The hook is hard to do alone so have a buddy near by. My shoes got caught on the bottom/back sometimes when dancing with 2.5 inch heels.

Absolutely gorgerous and petite friendly
This was my first dress from RTR, and I loved the dress and overall experience. I am 5.0 petite, always have problems finding dresses, and thought this would be great because of asymmetrical design of the skirt. It worked! I got a lot of complements from other wedding guests and my friends. The color is vibrant and makes the dress very elegant( Fabric is thick and the dress itself if a bit heavy). I am petite, usually wears size 0 or XXS, and size 0 of this dress fits well... but due to my smallish bust, I had to wear strapless bra inside to fill the gap between dress and my bust. I would recommend anyone who is looking for unique, elegant and sophisticated dress for formal occasions.

Love this dress!
I wore this to a black tie fundraiser and received so many compliments - on the fit, color (vibrant and bright), texture, and the pockets! I was able to keep cash and my phone in the dress pockets, and you couldn't tell they were there. I typically wear a 4 but it felt a bit restrictive, and since I love to eat and dance, the 6 gave me a little more room to wiggle and breathe. There is a built-in bra that secures you - I was worried about pulling a strapless dress up all night, but it stayed put perfectly. Love.

Adorable fun summer dress
This was the perfect wedding rental! It was bright and feminine, but still conservative enough that I felt appropriate at a more conservative wedding. The pockets were deep enough that my phone stayed in while dancing around. I found it very comfortable and didn't want to have to send it back! Based on the reviews I considered sizing up to a 6 even though I am usually a 4, but I am so glad I stayed with the 4. When dresses are really fitted in the hips I will wear a 6, but this is just fitted in the band. I have a small band size but large bust (30ddd/32dd) and it fit great plus I didn't have to wear a bra. Loved it!!

Absolutely gorgeous dress!
I wore this dress to a family dinner and absolutely loved it! The material is thick and is very well made. It looks a lot fancier in person than it does on the website so when I put it on I almost felt overdressed for the dinner, but you know what they say...."you can never be over-educated, over-paid or over-dressed" so I went with it and got tons of compliments :-)

Stylist Review
A beautiful teal dress by ML Monique Lhuillier! This dress runs true to size but we recommend sizing up for the back up as the fabric has no stretch. It is fitted at the natural waist and bust so we recommend the style for A to C cup sizes or if you have a smaller band size. There is a built in bodice for support so you are able to wear without a bra. Fuller skirt allows for comfortable room at hips. I love the convenient pockets and the high low look! At 5'10", the highest length of the dress hit right at my knees.

This dress was perfect in every way and I received many compliments! I usually wear a size 4 and the 4 seemed a little big in this dress and I probably should have rented the 2. Would definitely recommend this dress and would definitely rent it again!

I ended up not wearing this dress to a wedding because the material was a little thick for a July wedding in Alabama, but I loved it on! The pockets are nice and so is the color and my husband liked it, too! Perhaps more for a black tie wedding.

A classy and elegant dress that will make you stand out!
This was not the dress I originally ordered but they said that a problem happened with my order so they sent me this dress. It was a similar style to what I orginally wanted. I love the color and that it was strapless. I recieved many compliments on it. I was very happy that it worked out. My mother told me that she thought it looked a little long on me..that never happens I'm 5'10"!

Compliments all night
I wore this dress to a very formal gala event. It was beautiful and fit like a glove. I received compliments all night and over 200 FB likes when I posted this picture. The dress runs very true to size. No bra needed ( there is built in support). I am short, but the cut being short in front and long in the back worked well for me. Monique has yet to fail me!

I loved this dress and found it the right style for what I was going for. I found it to run small and I don't have a big bust. I wasn't pulling the dress up all night and it was rather comfortable. Received a lot of compliments.

Color and comfort!
This pic is me just trying it on... Looks much more elegant with hair, earrings, and shoes :) it was v comfortable once zipped up, but had to hold by breathe to do so! Once on though it felt good. Stayed up no problem and didnt create any armpit fat (which I usually have and hate with strapless dresses). Pockets! A definite hit :)

A stand-out dress that may not be for smaller chested women.
This is really a fun and vibrant dress, which I imagine would be really fun to dance in. I didn't end up wearing it for two reasons: the color in person was a bit too bright teal for my taste (much brighter than in pictures), and the boning in the bodice looked strange on me. The boning was a bit twisted, and I definitely didn't fill out the bodice though the internal bra did hold up the dress nicely. This dress would be much nicer for size B cup or larger.

I got so many compliments on this dress and it had pockets so I didn't need to carry a clutch!
This dress was actually a last minute replacement when the dress I ordered came with a rip in it. Thanks to the girls in the Chicago store who helped me scour the place for a replacement! It was definitely comfortable, I love the pockets, and above all for someone as busty as me (34DDD), I felt secure in the dress. I did not have to spend the night tugging on the dress because it of it falling down or sagging. It stayed put- a miracle! Also at 5'10" I usually have to worry about the length on things, but this dress fell at a good spot, not too short in the front. I got so many compliments on this dress and the material had enough weight to it that I did not have to worry about it flying all over the place in the Chicago wind. Definitely glad I wore this!
