Not for a short torso.
This dress didn't fit my body type. Waist portion of the dress needed to be lower on me but my hips were there, so it bunched up and caused the dress to be too short. Even if the dress fit me better, the length would have been a problem. For anyone taller than 5'2 or 5'3 and want to wear high heels order the Long.

I had way too much booty for this dress.
Stunning dress, but because of my excess derriere, I couldn't wear it and had to go with the back-up dress instead.

Comfortable dress, with elegant flair.
I rented this as an option for a Black Tie gala at a museum. I ended up not wearing this one because I liked my other option better, but this was still a lovely dress. The elegant detail on top, and small back cut out added some nice flair and a sexy touch, without being over-the-top sexy for my formal event. I got the size 2R, and it fit ok, just a little loose at the hips and in the bust (because I don't have much of a bust... a 0R would have been better, but just so you size 0's know- you can still pull off a 2 if they're out of that size ;) With my 4" heels this gown hit the ground perfectly. The flowing skirt looks beautiful when you walk, and the material on the inside is so buttery soft and comfortable like silk or chiffon. Loved it!

Very elegant and comfortable
Monique L'huillier really understands a woman's body. Any dress from her has always been amazing and this one is no exception. The material is luxe and durable and the form accentuates your best parts. There was no need to wear any shapewear underneath. And just the right amount of sparkle. I wore it to the opera and received compliments --from strangers. I felt beautiful and elegant in this dress. I love it and may rent it again in the future.

This dress really gave me the confidence I needed for a great night
This dress was for a formal event and I was looking for a good combination of professionalism/conservative and eye-catching and I think this dress was perfect for that. The heels that I wore were about 4" and the dress was just long enough to make it not look too awkward, but perhaps a 2L would've been better. The dress is very flattering, lays wonderful, is extremely comfortable (I was afraid the lace would be itchy under the arms), and highlights the collar bone and upper back wonderfully. I loved this dress and received so many compliments throughout the night.

LOVED this dress. It was comfortable and I felt awesome in it. I was shocked I fit into the 4.
The dress was a little long, but totally doable in minimal heals. I was concerned it would be too tight in the hips but it fit like a glove (in a good way!). My hips are 38"

The dress was very comfortable and fit perfect. I was able to get away without wearing a bra, because the material was thick and very soft. The 4R was a great length with 2 inch heels and was able to dance and move all night.

Beautiful dress!
I typically wear a 10 but in this dress, I definitely fit in the 12 and not the 10. But the 12 fit fine and looked great. Lots of compliments. Not the most comfortable dress I've ever worn.

Great, classic look!
Overall, fit was great, though it was surprisingly long! I wore the 2R, and I'm 5'4.5", and I still needed 4.5" heels to keep the dress from dragging! I am small-chested and was able to go without a bra as the top was fairly fitted and structured. Great, classic choice for a formal affair!

Nice dress, but was a bit worn out
The dress fit well. The cut gave me a little shape and the back cutout was very flattering, while still being able to wear a low-back bra. The dress is well lined, which helped on a chilly night. The lace of the dress I received had seen better days. The scallop edge kept folding under all night and there were some stray strings. My fiance assured me that this was only noticeable to me, so I wore it anyway.

This dress was perfect for the Christmas Ball. I got so many compliments on how elegant it was!
Both the 4R or 6R would have worked well. The 4R fit a bit more snugly and shapely. The 6R gave a bit more breathing room though. I wore the 4R as it hugged nicely and left less gaps and wrinkly areas in my midsection. The back lent itself to a strapless bra well. Overall, the most comfortable evening gown I've worn in a long time! I felt that it was striking and therefore received many compliments.

The dress looked beautiful, but the size 4L was much too big on me.
I am between a 2 and 4 in most dresses and the 4L was much to big on me. The size 2 was all sold out so I went for the risk, but I had to wear a friends dress instead.

The event was absolutely beautiful and the dress fit the event perfectly even if it was a bit short.
The dress was a little too short for my liking for it to be considered a long. Also the top was a little uncomfortable but other than that, everything was beautiful!

This dress fit like a glove and was one of the most comfortable I have ever worn.
Not too flashy, fit conservatively in the front but hat a hint of sexy with the back detail. Perfect for a winter wedding.

Beautiful Dress
I ordered this dress for a formal work event. It was beautiful and perfect for a work event -- I got many compliments. I usually wear a 0 or 2 in formal dresses, and the 2R fit me perfectly. I think the 0 would have been too small, and the 4 much too big. The length was nearly perfect; I was wearing 3 inch heels and I think 2 inches would have worked better, but it was just fine. It is also a good cool weather dress; the fabric is thick and would be too warm in the summer. Overall it was great for what I was looking for.

This was the perfect dress for a semi-formal wedding. Gorgeous and classic!
I'm 5'8" but I have a longer torso. Because of my longer torso, the dress bunched around my waist a bit where most people's hips would . However, after a few minutes, the dress stretched out just a touch and fit perfectly. The material is not stiff, but is sturdy. I wore a low back strapless bra, but could have gotten away with not wearing a bra. I have curvier hips compared to my upper body and I felt like the dress created a pretty hour glass shape. The dress was the perfect length with super short heels (almost flats)

Efforts made re: order issue exceeded my expectations.
Loved this dress. Much heavier than you would think though. Definitely glad I ordered the long and probably could have gotten away with the 8l. the 6l was fitting with more room in some places than others. Was complimented all night. Felt like a million bucks. Only complaint is, on the drive home from the wedding, the hook and eye on the lace part fell off. Just thankful it happened then and not on the dance floor. There was a bit of a snag with my order at the last minute but RTR made their best efforts to make it right. Wound up not being as big of an issue as anticipated and everything worked out very well.

The dress fit very well but was a little too long for my 5'4" height, even w/3" heels. The dress looked great, but fabric maybe a bit too heavy for a warm day in September. Loved the back!

This dress and I were just not meant to be.
It was too tight around my chest and stomach, so it would not zip. It was also waaay to long in my 5'5'' frame. The material is extremely heavy, itchy, and uncomfortable overall. Thank goodness I had ordered a second dress along with it.

Awesome - very comfortable dress.
Loved the dress - it does fit tight, but is a dark color and thick fabric so you feel comfortable wearing it. I'm a 34DD and was able to comfortably wear without a bra during dancing. The dress is tight enough for no bra, but also doesn't give you the flat boob look. I wore a 2" heel and the regular length fit perfect, I was also able to wear flats and the dress didn't get in my way.

The 0 was snug and I ended up going with it because the 2 was wrinkled from shipping. I was glad I wore the 0, it ended up feeling great the whole night. The length was great with high (4+ in) heels.

This dress has a very understated elegance to it and perfect for for feeling glamorous for a night.
The fit was a bit snug up top, especially if you have a larger chest size so I didn't wear a bra, but otherwise it was perfect. It clings to the body, but doesn't look painted on. It creates the most beautiful silhouettes for photos too. Definitely recommend for any formal event.

It felt amazing to get dressed up for a black tie wedding in this dress!
This dress was perfect for comfort as well as a black tie wedding. It fit true to size. I am bustier and I was able to go without a bra. It hangs really well and flatters you. I did wear spanx because I recently had a baby but the dark blue really slims you down. I am 5'4" and had to wear a 10 due to my bust so I wore 3 1/2 inch heel which was perfect. The only time the dress felt long was going up and down stairs where I needed to pick it up. It was such a great dress and I got a ton of compliments.

Lovely shape, and great back detail. Very comfortable!
I'm 5'2" so this dress was really long on me, even in heels. But the fit was great and super comfortable. The dress had a nice subtle almost a-line flare that made the overall shape look great, and made dancing fun!

Loved this gown! Glamorous. Beautiful details. Red carpet ready!
The dress was true to size. This was sent to me when my first choice gown was too large and I had ordered the larger size as a back up. RTR talked me through their website to pick a different gown. We found this one and it was perfect. They shipped it overnight and it arrived the day of the gala. It was glamorous with beautiful beading details on the top. It was not heavy or too long. I am 5 ft 7 and wore 3 inch heels. It was my first experience with RTR.

Love it! Last minute pick because the dress I ordered was damaged. I wore it to my senior prom.
Fit very well! Really comfortable material that doesn't wrinkle very easily, so I could sit, move etc like I wanted all night. True to size. The opening in the back adds something interesting without being overwhelming, and the thick shoulders make it stay on while dancing. :) I did have to wear a stick on bra b/c the opening goes right around where a bra would. Runs a little long though. I'm only 5'3" but with big heels it still was long.

Classy, Comfortable, and Confident
This dress was unbelievably comfortable for the black tie symphony event I attended with my husband (he loved the back of this dress so much). Whether we were sitting, standing, walking, or eating, I was happy because I knew I looked amazing and I was sure that dress fit perfectly - unlike a strapless, I wouldn't be adjusting it all night. The black and blue is subtle in dim lighting, but the sparkle was just enough to make people look twice. I was wearing 4" heels, so I ordered the long; I could have gone with the regular length and been just fine.

The dress was a perfect fit for my prom. It was not too tight and it was not too long! perfect!
I an about 5'5" and I wore wedges, It would have been way too long without the heals, but with it was perfect and it made dancing at prom fun and easy. Caution that if you want a thin light dress this is not it. The fabric is a thicker fabric but it is not too tight or heavy. I enjoyed wearing it!

Beautiful, conservative dress that turned heads!
When I ordered the dress, there was no 0R. So, I rented the 0L. Not bad, just too long. The other size I got was 2R but it was too big and there was a ripped seam just under the zipper. Loved it overall! No one had the same dress as me for prom! Definitely renting again in the future! Worth it!!
