Gorgeous! Felt like a princess!
I rented this as one of the dresses for two formal nights on my cruise last week. I absolutely love this dress! I could hear compliments all night as I walked by other cruisers to and from dinner. The V in front is VERY deep, and I had to wear a normal bra as my breast lift patches weren't working. You could see the bra, but I used fashion tap to try to minimize the appearance. My husband did have to help me into it, especially with the top zipper in back, and we also tapped the dress to the bra in back. The color was stunning, and the pockets!! Perfect for not having to carry a purse to hold my phone and cruise card. I'm 5'4", and wore a 14 and it was perfect. The cut out back is a fun little detail as well. I wore 3-4" heels and the length was perfect. And because my backups didn't arrive in time due to shipping issues, I ended up wearing this on the second formal night as well. Definitely would rent this again!

Amazing fit and a total stunner!
I normally wear a 10 but that's in clothing that DOESN'T run very true to size maybe because the 8 fit me well. It was such a pretty dress and I got compliments all nice. I'm 5'9 so I wore flats with it and you could see my toes when I walked but it pretty much hit the ground. I would definitely buy some double sided tape with this dress if you have a small bust, it all stayed in place just fine unless I was bending over, in which case I was happy to have the double sided tape to keep the dress tight to my skin.

Sexy yet elegant
I did not end up wearing this dress for the wedding i attended (it was a back up dress.) I loved the colors and the cut of the dress but it was a lot lower cut than i had imagined it to be. Also, the fabric is very heavy so it's not a dress you can easily dance in.

Dress fit, I wore a 16W, I loved the pockets. I wore a black tank and tucked it under and around my bra. I just didn't feel completely comfortable leaving my boobs double tapped.

Princess Bella
The color of the gown is gorgeous and photographs well! I wore the 6R and with 5 inch platform pumps it hit the ground perfectly! There are two closures in the back, one below the opening and one on top. The one at the bottom was snug but not too tight. If my breasts were any smaller the top would have been too loose, but my 34Ds kept it up well. Overall, this gown was perfect and I received so many compliments!!!

Great & Comfortable for a Black Tie Event
Super comfortable with pockets, got compliments all night. I'm a 5'2, 120lb, 32D, wore 3 inches heels and it was fine. A bit long but par for the course for me. Didn't need any fashion tape, but it was a close call.

Fabulous, comfortable, and a full of compliments!
Overall this dress fit great. The top was a little big for me so it tended to show my skin colored bra a little more than I would have liked. Nonetheless it got tons of compliments all throughout the night. I felt super regal and beautiful in this dress and I definitely stood out amongst the crowd!

The pictures don't do the colors justice. So beautiful when the light catches it.
I normally wear a size 2 but as I am particularly petite up top I opted for a 0. It was snug around my rib cage but this was good because I didn't have to wear a bra. I did end up having to pin the front close so that I didn't flash everyone when I sat down, but other than that it was a gorgeous fit. I also wore 3 inch heels and the dress grazed the ground (had to keep gathering it so people didn't step on it), but I liked the way it looked when I was just standing so all-in-all length was fine.

Best dressed
The 0R fit me absolutely perfect. I am 5'3" 115lbs and I wore 3" heels that made it the perfect length. The bottom has a bit of fluff in it that makes it a little warm so I wouldn't wear it to a hot outside event but it was perfect for an indoor event with a/c. By the time I left the gala I had an uncountable number of compliments on how absolutely beautiful the dress was. This dress definitely stands out in the crowd.

Perfectly elegant dress for an elegant evening among the flowers at NYBG.
There are pockets! So handy, meant I didn't need to carry a purse. The open back is really lovely and helps keep you cooler. Overall quite comfortable, if a little warm and heavy. Floral pattern is subtle and the deep purple is really beautiful.

This dress was a crowd favorite!
The dress was amazing! I receive many compliments throughout the night. The fit is very comfortable and easy to move around in which made the night enjoyable. The length worked perfectly with my 3" heels, barley touching the ground. The only con would be the bust runs very large. I had to safety pin the front together and it still showed quite a bit of cleavage. Overall, fantastic dress. Highly recommend!

Rented for opening night at the opera. When else do you get to wear a ballgown?
This dress runs pretty big. I usually wear a size 16 in everything and the size 14 was very comfortable and roomy. However, if you have any sort of bust at all you need a lot of tape to keep anything from showing. I taped and ended up pinning the top together and still spent most of the night adjusting so the tape wasn't visible. You need to be at the TOP of your dress taping game for this one. Also someone sewed the bottom of the zipper of the top part of the dress I received I think due to previous damage. That zipper is supposed to unzip all the way so getting into and out of it is very difficult when you are unable to unzip all the way. Lastly be careful it's got a bit of a train and people were stepping on me all night.

Stole the show!
Everyone was OBSESSED with this dress! When I got it, the bottom was wrinkled, so be prepared to steam it. Also, even though I got the 10 long, it was short on me. (5'10" with ~2" heels). Bring fashion tape, if you sit the dress can be revealing in the chest. So beautiful, great fabric, amazing value

This was the last awards ceremony with my favorite person working by my side!
The dress fit great! I love the 2p length because I was able to wear flats and no one notice! I was working as the event coordinator so I wanted to look awesome and be able to run around at the same time... this dress has pockets which made it perfect because I was able to carry around my phone in case of emergency! ONLY reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because I had to pin together the front of the dress. If you have any boobage at all (I barely have anything) this dress shows it all! So beware of that... if this has not been a work function I would probably not have pinned but I think I would have risked falling out of the dress because it was so open in the chest. Dress fit aamzing! I am a 34" bust and about 28" in waist. Unless you always fit in the exact same size make sure you measure before ordering!

Perfect for a gala
I rented the 10L and 8L and am pretty sure I received the 10R and 8R. Both fit well enough, the 10 was loose and the 8 a little tight....but I ended up wearing the 8 because it was longer than the 10 which I could tell someone had hemmed. I'm 5'9" and really wish I had received Long sizes. The dress is heavy, I would recommend only for a cooler weather event. It is really lovely though.....I was actually able to wear a normal bra with this.

So many compliments!
Hands-down one of the most beautiful dresses I've ever seen or worn. I definitely needed tape for the bustline and even then it wasn't perfect, but the fabric is gorgeous and it was an overall amazing choice for a black tie wedding. I normally wear between a size 22 and a 26 depending on the brand, which is why I think this ran true to size. It was snug at the tightest point of the waist, but the full skirt was very forgiving. Plus, it has pockets!

Gorgeous color and great fit.
I got so many compliments on this dress! The color looks beautiful in person and really pops. My only complaint about it is that the neckline is very deep. When I was standing, it wasn't really a problem. However, when I saw down, the front of the dress slouched a bit and I had to be very careful to not flash anyone! Invest in some fashion tape and you should be fine!

Best Dress ever.
The Dress was perfect for the Bridal Party. The only problem I had was the breast area you will need some tape. The pockets are perfect for cell phone and lipgloss. Wonderful dress.

Super comfortable!
Being 6 feet tall I loved that the dress just skimmed the floor which made it easy to walk in and was long enough for me. I had no problem with the plunging neckline and never felt uncomfortable about it. Wore it to a formal ball and was comfortable all night long.

"I LOVE that dress!!" ...all night long!
This was a back up dress and like always, RTR chooses something perfect for me! I am tall and adored this dress. The fabric is gorgeous and catches the light in so many spectacular ways. It's so comfortable and the pockets were AMAZING!! Pack a safety pin if you have little gals up top. Get ready to love it!

Gala elegance done just right
This purple number was a lovely pick for a gala event I was to attend. The length was just right. No issues with fit! It was snug enough that I only needed double-sided tape and no bra. Very comfortable! Bonus points for the cheeky pockets. The night of the gala I got to take some awesome photos with ~celebs~. I was really happy to make the most of this dress!! The only reason I wouldn't rent it again is because I have enough photos of me in this gown! 5 star dress.

Amazing!!!
Loved this dress! I wore this to a formal dinner and several after parties. It was extremely comfortable and was a showstopper! My only complaint was the bust area but I used dress tape which helped. I may have been able to size down to a 6 but made the 8 work. I highly recommend this dress!

One thing I loved about this dress was that I felt like a princess. Everyone loved the dress.
The fit was a little big. I am 5 "3 so when I took off my shoes to go dance, it was very long. If you wear high enough shoes it was the perfect length. Not too long and not too short just right. I went with the 0 because it was a little to big in the chest. I didn't even wear a bra it's just a preference what ever you feel comfortable with. But overall the dress is gorgeous. The fabric is very thick but you totally feel like a princess.

The dress was true to size. I am 5'7" and weigh 150 pounds and the size 4 fits how it does on me for any other dress. No cons. The pictures don't do it any justice looks amazing in person.

Stunning dress for a glamorous evening!
I wore this dress to the Metropolitan Opera's Opening Night Gala of the 2016-17 season, and it was the perfect dress for the occasion. I received many compliments on this dress throughout the evening (even the celebrities loved it!), and everyone wanted to know who designed my dress. I am typically a dress size 4, which is the size I needed in this gown, but because I am tall I chose the 4L size, which was the perfect length with 4" heels. This dress does have a plunging neckline, and even though I have a smaller chest, I felt like I was spilling a bit when I sat down. Other than that, this dress was a hit and I definitely recommend!

I attended my son'a senior prom and looking age appropriate was key. This made the night special
The dress ran rather large for me around the waist and bust area. I could have sized down to a 14 and been comfortable. The material was very luxurious and the color was beautiful. It had an triangle cut out that hid imperfections well. It was just amazing.

This dress is gorgeous! I got so many compliments and felt like a princess. It runs pretty much true to size, slightly on the short side--I'm 5'7" and wore about 2.5in heels and it didn't quite hit the floor. It's comfortable and fits beautifully especially for ladies with smaller busts.

I rented this dress for a work event of my husband's.
The fit is definitely large. I wear a 12 and this 10 fit perfectly to my hourglass figure. This dress requires another person to help zip you into it. I wore flats with this dress as I am 5' 7" and though it was slightly long, it wasn't enough to trip me up. People WILL step on the slight train at the back but I just learnt to pick up the dress in large crowds. I have a large bust, (UK 32H), so I ended up taping up my boobs, a la Kim Kardashian. Use athletic tape though, not duck tape. Duck tape will hurt the skin. I got so many compliments about the dress, you will love it!

Everything about this dress!
Fit large enough that I could go a size smaller. We went to a wedding in DC in March! It was cold, very very very cold. But the dress kept me warm and cute! I received compliments ALL NIGHT long! It was long enough that I could take my heels off when my feet started hurting and it didn't drag but covered me perfectly!
