Mardi Gras Ball
I'm 5'7" and 130lbs. The length was perfect. Glad I read the reviews and ordered a long. The size I ordered was a little big and probably could have sized down. I'm usually a 4 or 6 but the 4 was roomy. Super comfy and HAS POCKETS!

pleasant surprise
This dress was quite a pleasant surprise to me. I was supposed to receive the Castle Gown and RTR could not ship since the dress they had in stock had a malfunction so they ended up shipping this one to me without me even knowing. I was at first truly upset cause I had golf accessories and for purple you NEED silver. I mean truly with gold it would have looked super tacky. anyways, I rushed to get silver accessories at Macy's last minute and they complimented this beautiful gown so perfect. I got at least 12 compliments from random people at this gala plus friends and family. I had to use a safety pin at the front cause it opened too much for my taste. this dress fit me well overall and many people said I looked like I was going to the Oscars.

Dem pockets doh!!
I got so many compliments and so many people requesting a photo with me! I felt really special. Everyone loved the dress and the color. And it does photograph shinier than real life. I carried a small clutch to my even so the pockets were very handy. The fit was perfect for my body type. I have a rectangle shape, very athletic, and I still look very feminine in this dress. I am 5'5.5". I'm not very busty or abundant in the backyard. I wore the regular length. I loved the length. You only could've my shoes if I lifted the dress to climb stairs. Or if I cross my legs (not ankles) while seated. But it was not so long that I was tripping everywhere. People do step on the train and it's not THAT long. Unless your shoulders are very flexible, you will need help zipping the top portion. I almost broke my shoulder doing it myself, but that's because I'm stubborn. I did not steam the dress. There were minor wrinkles at the bottom, but as you can see it's not noticeable, or it works with the flow of the dress. The dress is very well-made, and the material is not cheap looking or cheap feeling. I will say I think it looks better on me than in the model/mannequin photos, then again, I did accessorize it. I would suggest simple accessories for such a beautiful dress. I did gold and red to make the purple stand out more. The bottom is as thick as it looks. I was very please with that! I am a 34B and I think this would still look nice on a medium breasted woman, as long as you have the equipment to prevent a peak-a-boo. Because if you sit a certain way, or twist your torso a certain way, someone to your left or right COULD catch a look see of something, but not someone in front of you. You may not have to worry about that, because I sit really weird sometimes, but I also had the flower patches covering me.

Amazing dress! (and pockets!)
I wore this dress to my senior year father daughter dance. It fits true to size, and it is absolutely beautiful! The colors are bright, and the pockets are so helpful. I ended up not wearing a bra with this dress, but with a little fashion tape I was free to dance and not be worried for the entire night. You'll draw every eye in the room and get so many complements!

Loved the pockets!
I wore the 18wl but would have like to wear the 16wl after trying the two different sizes I had ordered (my backup was the 16wr) I'm 5'9 and the R length wasn't long enough to add heels. I think someone may have had the 18 altered because it fit much tighter and the keyhole in the back was much larger than the 16 which I didn't love. The dress was a hit though! I got a ton of compliments and felt great all night. I did need to pin the bust because that was just too much bust for me. The pockets made the dress, I didn't have to bring a purse which in my mind is a always great.

This dress ended up being a conversation piece.
It fit great. If you're on the smaller side in the bust area, though, the top does pucker out a bit at the neckline when you sit down.

The only thing I had to do was pin the front because it was a little low for a prom. This will forever be my favorite dress. It was very unique.

Beautiful Engagement Photos!!
My fiancé and I wanted to do a formal engagement shoot and this dress was it!! I felt sexy in it and it flowed so beautifully. And not to mention this purple had me feeling like royalty. We had taken our pictures at the Kennedy Center in DC so it was perfect!

Beautiful gown absolutely loved it!! Fit is true to size, however it can feel a little heavy after a while and is a bit cumbersome for dancing.

Pockets!
Let me start by saying I ordered this dress because I was 16 weeks pregnant at the time. So if you are looking for something bump friendly this is a good option. I wore this with 3" inch heels and it was also the perfect length for my 5'4 height. I have larger boobs now being pregnant so I did have to pin the top a little but that was no big deal. I also loved that it had pockets. I had plenty of compliments about looking good but not specifically on the dress. This is a pretty dress and it worked just fine but I have loved others more. That's just my personal preference but overall a great dress.

Fun and Formal
This dress was perfect for a hairstylist awards show. I love that it had pockets. This was my first RTR experience and the only disappointment was dealing with the return. I dropped it off at the store and was charged the next month for not returning. They took care of it but it was annoying to have to have them refund my card and it was hard to get it taken care of.

Photoshoot
This gown is gorgeous in person! The color is vibrant and photographs very well. I could not wear a bra because the cut-out would have shown the hooks. Because of that (I think) there was quite a bit of space in the chest area. Overall I loved it just make sure you have pasties!

Magical Princess Dress
Best dress I've ever worn, I've never had so many compliments in my life. People were calling me Cinderella all night long. If you have a bigger chest, this might not be the best dress for you, it's pretty low in the front. 5'6 or taller, if you want to wear heels, go for the long!

Fit beautifully, true to size. I was glad I got the long length; it was perfect with 4 inch heels. I got so many compliments on this dress, which is stunning in person. Plus, POCKETS!! I was able to carry my phone in my pocket all evening!

Perfectly REGAL and pockets!
First things first - the voluminous skirt (which hid my yet to be announced baby bump well ;) had pockets...which made it perfect for managing my toddler as the ring bearer of a family wedding. Great place to hide a cookie and a small train while taking formal photos and bribing a 2yr old to walk down the aisle. The best compliment I got of the night (which was many) was when the brides friend pulled me aside to say "you look REGAL, totally fierce! Like you stepped out of a Game of Thrones episode" so that was awesome. Having said all that, the very low cut neckline and the back cut-out weren't ideal for my body (can you say back fat!!) so instead I wore a Spanx Assets black cami underneath which blended relatively well with the dress which allowed me to wear a proper bra, and gave me more comfort and confidence to bend down and pick up my kiddo as needed (as well as warmth in a cold ballroom!). Most people didn't even notice that it wasn't part of the dress. The length was surprisingly manageable given my 5'2" height and 2" heel...but its also meant to be a gown, so it did touch the floor.

This dress in nothing like every wedding dress I see and that's why loved it!
The cutout part in the back looks so great. My favorite part? POCKETS!!! Didn't bring a purse, I just put my cellphone and my lipstick in my pockets and hit the road. It was soooo comfortable and stylish. I was sure that nobody at the wedding I went would have something like it and everybody complemented me!!

I didn't end up wearing it to the event but I did try it on and I didn't want to take it off!!
Dress fit beautifully. The color is elegant and mostly purpley-blue. The v-cut made my breasts look great. It cinches at the waist perfectly. LOVE THIS DRESS. A show stopper.

Showstopper! So many people I had never met stopped me to talk to me about my dress!
The fabric is beautiful, but the fit is a little loose in the bust area. I used double sided fabric tape to keep it in place when I sat down. The pockets are awesome, and because of the fit of the dress, you can't tell how much is in there. I was able to carry my wallet, two phones, lipgloss and fabric tape without any change to the look of the dress. This dress is a must rent!

Gorgeous and dramatic!
This was gorgeous. I could have worn either the 6 or the 8, but I wore the 8 for length. I'm 5'8 and ordered the long and still had to wear flats. Not long enough for anybody taller, for sure. I felt beautiful and loved the pockets and low neckline. I'm not busty and I didn't have to wear a bra, but it does have strap keeps.

Amazing!! So happy with it! Still getting complments!!
You'll need to tape your chest as the cut doesn't allow for a bra. For someone with a large chest I was shocked at how well the dress held them in and up. Never did I feel like I was going to be exposed.

The cut of the top lets you wear a normal bra - bonus! No need to carry a purse, pockets - bonus! Easy fit and easy to move in. Keyhole back for surprise touch when hugging - bonus! Got a little hot when dancing in full skirt.

Beautiful dress, be careful on sizing
Pros: the fabric looks even more amazing in person - a beautiful shimmery dark purple, pink, and silver. It has POCKETS. You can easily wear a normal bra. It emphasizes your waist while glossing over any areas where you feel less confident. It's very comfortable and not as heavy as it looks. Cons: It is a DEEP v so expect a lot of cleavage (too much for a work gala for me). Also, take note that for the upper sizes, there are both regular and women's sizes available. I tired on a 12 in store, found that it was slightly too small so I asked to order the next size up for comfort. I got a 14W instead of the plain 14 which is cut slightly differently as seen in the sample photos. The 14W was enormous in the waist and chest on me. Given the cutout back, the dress drooped severely at the waist and the top was very large. I am sure that a regular 14 would have fit very nicely and I probably could have been happy with the 12 too. Moral of the story: stunner of a dress, but be sure to choose the cut that fits your body best if you are size 14 or above.

Compliments for Days. And Pockets.
I absolutely adore this dress. It was perfect for my black tie optional wedding in Palm Springs. Someone actually stopped me to tell me that they (and their friends) all thought I had the best dress at the wedding. (Aside from the bride, of course.) The top was a little tight, so if you have a large chest, you way want to size up. Otherwise,e an absolutely perfect dress.

Perfect dress for a Black Tie Charity event.
I LOVED this dress. I got so many compliments throughout the night. It was comfortable and didn't bother me at all. I have a larger bust so I taped the dress down at first, but the tape wasn't holding properly so I gave up. Luckily the dress fit well enough that I didn't even have any issues anyways. In some pictures the dress looks a little metallic or shimmery - but that is just the flash. The dress is not like that in person at all. I had a really hard time sending this one back! (In case my profile doesn't post properly - I'm 5'4", 131lbs, size 34D bust and I wore a 2R).

Stunning skirt, but couldn't wear a bra
I ended up wearing a different style. I was bummed because I LOVED the skirt on this dress. I felt like I was going to a ball. But the back of the top comes up too high to wear a regular or strapless bra. I tried significantly tightening the straps on my bra to raise the band in the back, however, not only is that horribly uncomfortable and unsupportive, the band of the bra still kept poking out the bottom. Not classy. I experimented with no bra (bad idea for 32D me, but I tried), but the front is low and loose enough that it actually exposed me when leaning forward only slightly (which means even with a bra, I'd be showing it off all night). I would have needed tape, but since I've never used it, I didn't want my first time at a black tie event to be the night I experimented. I'm a pear, so this dress probably works better for people with larger torsos. Or if you are also a pear, and don't need a bra, try ordering the size according to your upper half, as the bottom half doesn't hug at all. Just watch the waist because it will get snug.

So many compliments and definitely the most unique dress at the New Orleans Ball.
I had to pin the front because my torso is short but other than that this dress was amazing and so comfortable. I expected to have to wear really tall heels because I ordered the regular instead of petite, but the dress hit the floor perfectly with my 3in heels. There is an small open back but I was still able to wear a bra which was very nice and look! it has pockets. I highly recommend this dress!

I loved the dress. The color and fabric were beautiful and fun and I got TONS of compliments on it!
The dress was perfect for a NYE wedding. I normally wear a 6/8 depending on the dress so I ordered a 6 and an 8. I was nervous because the wedding was after the holidays and I thought I should have gone up a size, but the 6 ended up working great. It was slightly snug around the waste, but it was fine. It was shorter than I thought it would be- I ended up wearing flats. I have a B-cup and I wished I'd had a little more up top to fill out the top, but it was fine, and no gapping. I really enjoyed the dress!

I loved this dress. I got a size bigger and the long length. I was the only one dressed in black tie! I got to show off a bit. No one could believe I rented this beautiful dress. I paired it with my hot pink loubs that seemed to highlight the beautiful gown.

Love this dress! I got tons of compliments on it and was comfortable all night! Also, pockets.
Love the open back, the low cut (I did end up safety pinning it though for gaping) and the pockets! However, I'm only 5'5 and dresses are usually really long on me. I brought heels with me but had to go out and buy flats because it hit right at my ankles.

Incredible!
I received SO many complements on this gown! I am 5'7" and would definitely recommend getting a long instead of regular- I wore flat sandles and you can see my feet at the bottom in the picture. Especially if you plan to wear heels! This dress is absolutely stunning.
