I looked like a damn Disney princess
Very comfortable, great color for olive skin tone, elegant, easy to dance in, I could actually eat food. Probably the best dress I've ever worn.

Gorgeous emerald color!
Runs small. I typically wear a 2 long (sometimes a 0) and the 2 wouldn't zip. Glad I ordered the 4L for backup. Gorgeous color. I got tons of compliments!

I felt like a princess, and received so many compliments!
I wore this dress to prom, and I can honestly say that I wouldn't have had it any other way! I was afraid that it was too short since it landed right above my ankles, but it's longer in the back and flowed nicely when I walked so keep that in mind when ordering your size :D Like many others have said, pictures don't do it justice; it's a lovely emerald green that kinda shimmers and looks like something from a fairytale! Definitely one of my favorites from this site.

Perfect for Wizard of Oz gala
I rented the 8L and 12L in this dress. (NO 10L available on ANY date?!? Would've been much better ). This dress seems sized to bridesmaid sizing, as in small. I wear a 6-8 and the 8L was reported damaged/late. I was crushed especially as the few available last minute alternate replacements were either damaged as well or just not even close to what I thought the dress would look like. Which left me with the size 12L, on the morning of my event that I was chairing and had ordered this dress specifically for this event months earlier. Since the 12 really = an 8/10, I just pinned the sh!t out of it and it worked. Dress is beautiful and I got compliments all night. This experience with RTR was extremely stressful, their email was down for a few days and getting through to an actual person on the phone took 45 min + each time.

Good fit for the occasion
It definitely ran small. I normally wear a 10 in dresses, but the 12 barely zipped. It also sits very low on the hip, which made it hard to stay in place when I was going between sitting and standing. The top had a tendency to roll down and didn't lay flat very well. But it was a beautiful dress and overall perfect for the occasion

The dress was exactly like the one in the picture!
The fabric is vey soft, but it is not stretchy. Therefore I would agree with the rest of the reviews and play it safe by getting a size bigger than what you would usually wear.

The dress was gorgeous however the top was a bit loose. Had to stack up a nice padded bra. Definitely was the best dressed and got compliments all night.

This dress was perfect, it fit great and was gorgeous!
The dress fit great and was gorgeous, I received many compliments about the color and style. I was worried about picking out a dress for the gala that would fit okay two month after having our fourth baby and this one was great! The only downside was the corset, it was a little too tight which made it tough to take a deep breath but it was great because it never felt like it was sliding down and I didn't have to wear a bra with it! Overall a perfect dress! I'm currently 154 lbs and 5'4" and it was the right length and right size.

An amazing time with my fiancé!
It is slightly smaller than expected in the bust. I'm 34B and it was snug with a slightly passed strapless. Loved the dress. Hard to dance in so keep that in mind. Overall would definitely recommend

This dress was perfect! I got tons of princess-related compliments and it fit like a glove,
I wore this dress for my senior prom! The only reason this dress is missing a star for me is because the boning was sticking through in a few places (nothing a little duct tape can't fix). Other than that, it was soft, flattering, comfortable, and best of all, I didn't find myself adjusting it all night. I rarely do strapless or ball gowns, but this dress was lovely.

The absolute perfect dress to get remarried in!
This dress was the absolute perfect dress for our vow renewal ceremony. I ordered the 2L and the 4L. I actually fit both dresses well, but my bestie convinced me to go with the smaller dress for the sexiest fit. It did have slight poking feel that kind of dug in my skin when I first put it on, but after wearing it for a while, that feeling was long gone (maybe it was all the excitement for our special day). I'm 5'6, so the long was perfect for me. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect gown.

this was a gorgeous dress!
I recieved so many compliments in this dress!! I've rented dresses for formal affairs the past two years from rtr, but I think this dress really hit it out of the park. It did seem large to me, I could have probably sized down one, as it was quite loose in the waist/bust area. The bottom is frayed from the dress dragging on the ground, but I suppose that is to be expected.

I have never received so many compliments on a dress in my life...108 on Facebook! 'Owned' it ;)
Ran a little large, tried it on at Bendel's and the sample definitely fit slightly better than the dress that shipped...otherwise, felt like a very pretty pine tree the whole night!

Lovely color
Loved the color and fabric of the dress, however, I ordered a size up based on the fit description that said it runs small. I ordered a 6 (I usually wear a 4 or 6), but the bust was waaay too big. It might have just been worn many times and stretched out, but it could have easily fit two more cup sizes in there.

I felt like a Disney princess in it because of its elegance!! They color is perfect
PRO: Color is the perfect emerald, not hard to put on and keep secure because of the inner lining CON: I wish there had been a petite size because I did the regular 0 and it was really long, I kept tripping over it even in 4 inch heals. But other than that it was great!

This was my $25 back up dress
I did not wear this dress. I rented it because I was able to get it for $25. I was attending a ball with a green theme so the color was perfect but the 4L was way too big. I have rented and worn 4L's from the brand ML but I think I would have needed a 0L is was that big on me.

Elegant and a crowd stunner!
I rented this dress for a gala for which I was the Mistress of Ceremonies. I ordered the 4 and the 6. I normally wear a 4. The 6 fit, although it was difficult to zip at the bust area. I had to remove my strapless bra to make it fit at the bust area. I tried using the push up sticky bra. That didn't work either. But, the material and structure of the dress where so good that you could not tell. The dress was the perfect length for me and it was easy to dance in as well. I got several compliments and truly felt like I had the best dress in the room!

Vibrant, stunning, elegant... complitments all night long
Loved the gown. I got compliments all night long. The dress has wiggle room so if you are in between dress sizes order up for the best fit. The dress has a lining that is soft and comfortable. The skirt gets it's fullness from a gathered netting under the dress. I had on 4" platform heels and the dress was perfect length for that.

Loved this dress.
Wore the gown to a Florida Hospital Fund Raising Gala. Was glad I read the reviews because it did run small. I wear an 8R but needed the 10R. The fabric was truly elegant. I chose the color because of the green in the tartan of my man's kilt. Received so many wonderful comments. In looking at the dress on the website and the way mine fit, I believe some of the stitching in the front gathered area must have been out because my dress had somewhat of a train in the front. However, I didn't mind the look-very unique. Overall I loved this dress.

No one could believe I didn't have this dress custom made for me. it fit like a glove.
Everything was perfect except it did fit very tight around my rib cage. I normally wear a 4 and I went with the 6 because it just fit. I think the bust size makes a difference. if you are a C or bigger, you should order a size up just incase. loved, loved it!

Perfection!
Lesson learned about balls on the last day of a Mardi Gras vacation... size up!! I'm a 00-0 in most clothing so I always go for a 0 with RTR. I opted for a long as my backup just in case I got super high heels, and boy I wish I'd gotten a 2 instead! It was snug, but we managed to get it on finally and it was so worth it! The color is gorgeous! The bottom is filled with green tulle making it feel like a true ball gown. I got numerous compliments all night long and felt like a princess! I wish I had gotten better pictures, but I was too busy having the time of my life in the perfect dress. I still wore fairly tall shoes (3.5-4"?) and the dress just gracefully brushed the ground and I never had to worry about tripping on it.

Breathtaking Color and Amazing Dress!!!!
This dress is beautiful. It runs just a tad tight in the chest, but the length is perfect with heels. The pictures really don't do the color justice. It is a deep emerald green. I wore it for an Irish festival and it set the perfect tone. I would rent this dress over and over again!

Loved the fit, but was so uncomfortable! :(
I wore this to my senior prom on Saturday (4/19) and it was such a beautiful dress. There were A LOT of problems with it, though. First off, the ruffles were all screwed up, probably just the result of a lot of wear and tear, and there was even a hole in the middle of a ruffle that noticed right away when I brought it out of the bag. There were also multiple pokey plastic pieces sticking out of the fabric in the bodice that actually punctured my skin to the point of drawing blood and gave me bruises when I took my dress off after the dance! I was very disappointed in what bad quality the dress was in, but since my senior prom was the next day I had to make do with what was given to me. (The four, which was my original choice, was practically perfect but my breasts would not fit, which sucked.) It's a really beautiful dress though--most of my problems with it stemmed from this particular dress that was sent to me rather than the overall design--and is very flattering to all body types. I kept getting compliments all night, even from guys! Love Monique Lhuillier.

This was my backup dress and although I didnt wear it, my friends liked how it looked.
Very fitted through the top. Other than that, it was great. True to picture color, and the details were amazing. The ruching was a little distracting for me though and never seemed to lay correctly.

I wore this dress for a black tie gala.
This was my first RTR rental and I was not disappointed. The dress is beautiful. The 4 fit, but was a little tight in the bust, so I wore the 6 because it was more comfortable.

I wore this dress for my senior prom and LOVED it!
I ordered the dress about 3 weeks before my prom, and the staff at RTR were really helpful with adding my accessories to my order after the fact. I usually wear a size 4, but I am rather busty, so I'd suggest if you're not sure about the size to order up. The dress I was sent had pieces of the plastic boning inside poking through, so I was stabbed in the chest all night, and there was a loose piece of tulle in the under layer that I kept tripping/stepping on. But other than the issues with the particular dress I was sent, the dress was absolutely lovely and I received compliments the whole evening!

Perfect jewel tone
This color has always been a favorite of mine so to find it in such a beautiful dress I was hooked. And I was not disappointed. I am usually a 6 but I worn the 8 because it was a little snug around the books and ribs, there is no give in the fabric there. I actually might have been more comfortable in the 10, but I was okay in the 8. I did the L because with the heels I need the extra length so it still puddles at the floor. This was worn to an Oscars viewing party that was a formal affair and it was an absolute hit.

Gorgeous dress !
The top has an extra band for support to keep the dress up which was appreciated even though it is a bit tight and uncomftable at times. I was looking for a green dress and I saw this one and I didn't love it but when I put it on .. That was a different story! Such a princess dress! Loved it !

I got this dress last minute when another order fell through.. Unfortunately my makeup/accessories were planned for a red light weight dress, and this is a heavy green dress, so it was not perfect.

This dress is stunning and I felt like a princess!
I ordered the long length only because the regular length wasn't available for the night, but even with 4 inch heels (making me close to 6ft tall), it was still too long. So get the regular length if you're anywhere near my height. Otherwise, the fit was perfect. I'm a size 10 in nearly everything, and the 10 in this dress was just right. I received so many compliments, and my Facebook page exploded when I posted pics.

Vibrant color, luxe fabric, and sculpted shape make this ideal for a fancy celebration.
PROS: This dress is festive and sophisticated. The cut is so dramatic and feminine, but also really forgiving and flattering. It makes a subtle swishing sound when you move, too. I wore it to a black-tie wedding and not only felt like royalty but was comfortable and happy all night. CONS: The top of the dress was a little uneven, and there were delivery issues with the courier service RTR uses in NYC. The dress arrived 24 hours late, so we were down to the wire in terms of getting it delivered in time for the event. Luckily, customer service saved the day; the two women I spoke with, Rachel and Jessica, were so sweet and committed to getting the dress delivered that it wound up being fine. ALSO: I visited the SoHo showroom to find this dress and highly recommend that to those in NYC—amazing to be able to take out so much of the guesswork.

This dress is absolutely amazing, felt like Cinderella just trying it on!
Even more beautiful in reality than it looks in the picture. Not stiff as you would think, hugs every curve and hides any imperfection. I felt that it ran very true to size. I tried a 2, perfect throughout, but couldn't zip it up at the top. RTR was amazing, sent another one size 4 which I was able to zip up but unfortunately my bust was too full for it. If I were a 32 DD would have been great, when you add one more D the cup will spill... Otherwise I highly recommend this one, you don't need a bra or to think twice about it. It stays put in place and you can dance, jump, do whatever you need to without pulling it up every second.
