Beautiful but didn't work

I'm quite petite so the dress just swallowed me therefore I returned it.

I got a ton of compliments in this dress. And POCKETS! Who doesn't love pockets in a dress.

Pro it was great for a fall/winter wedding bc of the weight of the dress. The bad thing was it was almost too tight in the chest, I wish I had the size up. But for smaller chested girls this dress will do well.

Perfect for marine corps ball!

Loved this dress! The pockets were so awesome, I had a camera, cell phone, lip gloss and some Jell-O shots in my pockets and you couldn't even tell! It was perfect for a formal event! I ended up wearing the 6R because the 4R was tight on my chest. But it was very comfortable for dancing and running around!

Although it fit, I didn't wear this one but chose my backup dress. The fabric is too bulky.

Too bulky and the hem had been altered not very well. Did not hang right.

very unique dress

because of previous reviews I ordered this in a 4 and a 6. the sizing of this dress is quite odd, in the center bust region, it's very tight, while the top seam and the bodice run large. the 4 was plenty large enough though. honestly, I probably should have gotten a 2. the length in the regular was very long! I'm 5'3", I got 5" heels, and the dress was still on the ground. overall though, this dress was a standout, the unique coloring and pattern were so unlike the other dresses.

Dress was perfect for the black tie wedding I attended.

The hem was very wonky when the dress arrived, but with some pressing I was able to smooth it out. The dress fit well. The length was just right with 4ish inch heels (I'm 5'6"). It also has pockets, which was awesome.

Unique and gorgeous gown for prom

It fit true to size. I am a 0 usually and that's what I decided to wear. It was a little bit long (granted I am only 5'4) but I was wearing 4 inch heels and i still had to hold it up while I walked. The zipper was annoying, but not impossible.. But the same goes for most gowns. I loved the color and got loads of compliments. It came right on time and it was a classier alternative to the overly sparkly typical prom dresses. Pockets were obviously a bonus!:)

POCKETS!!!

This dress was the perfect mix between modern chic with a little bit of princess glam! The top comes with a built in corset which made flat chest look like it had something. For a girl with small boobs this dress didn't have me tugging on it to keep it up since it was perfectly tight on the waist. The pockets with the BEST part I got so many compliments and the color is gorgeous. Definitely pie it with cute heels and a chunky necklace and you're sure to be in the spotlight!

Great dress! The pockets are amazing!

This dress is absolutely beautiful! I got so many compliments on it. Very comfortable for a night of dancing. It fits true to size - snug on the top so you're not stuck holding it up all night. I wore a strapless bra but you could go without. The pockets were the best part about the whole thing - I had my phone and Chapstick all night and you can't tell in any photos. The dress also photographs well.

This dress was absolutely perfect! I received numerous complements and felt beautiful all night.

A little heavier material so I wouldn't recommend for hot temperature The long was the perfect length and I'm 5'11 so that's saying something! Wouldn't recommend for anyone too busty Great for anyone looking to hide their problem areas in the torso region

Beautiful and exactly what I expected

This dress is absolutely what I expected and wanted. Some of the cons: zipper was a little tricky, the hem was a little wonky, and the material was fairly heavy. Those are pretty much in common with everyone else's reviews though, so it wasn't a shock. Those details were really easily overlooked though, and didn't detract from the dress in any noticeable way. Overall, it was luxurious, fun, well-structured, and well-fitting. I wore it with 4.5 inch heels and the back just barely touched the floor, so the length was perfect for me. I didn't want to take the dress off, even. Im so glad I got it.

My favorite dress ever!

I absolutely LOVED this dress. Absolutely stunning for a winter wedding! I got so many compliments all night. It is very elegant. I ended up for a 4 long, because that was the only size they had left. It was longer, but for the winter, it was perfect. Highly recommend this!

Beautiful dress

This was a really elegant dress. The material was heavy so it would be very appropriate for a holiday party but perhaps too much for summer. I am short - too short for long formal dresses- but the length fit me well in the front with a 3-4 inch heel and left a slight train in the back. I ended up not wearing this dress because I am busty and had a hard time getting it zipped - my girls were pretty squashed which wasn't so flattering. Next time I will order a size up

Beautiful dress but not as forgiving if you have a postpartum belly

I wore this to a charity gala and was the first formal affair that I had been to since having my twin girls a few months prior. The dress is beautiful but snug in the waist area.

Felt so great in this dress

I loved this dress. My only issues were the boning was poking me in my torso. This was only the case for the 4L, but I ended up wearing the 2L which didn't have this issue. Also, the loops that are sewn into the dress that are used to hang the dress are RED. And even though I tuck them into the dress u can still see the red. It was surprising that a dress that costs so much and is made so well had this issue. Other than that. I felt great

It's even prettier in person than online! The hemline is especially great for petite girls.

The fit was a little small in the ribcage area, and the thickness of the fabric makes zipping a little tricky. If you have help, though, you're fine! I wore this to a fundraising ball and felt so pretty. The fabric had a great weight and movement while still being comfortable. I felt so pretty all night! I especially loved that I didn't feel like I was tripping over it all night!

I felt beautiful!

The dress was beautiful, however, the bottom of the corset underneath had wires poking out that were very uncomfortable. I covered them with band aids which worked just fine. Overall, I loved the look of the dress and it stayed up all night even without straps. Beautiful!

Super cute! Just wish it fit :(

This dress is so cute on! The pockets are really helpful and hidden and the color is really beautiful. I didn't have many options so I could only get a size 8R. Unfortunately, it run a bit small. There is NO stretch or give in the chest and was near impossible to get zipped up. So, even though I'm a size 6 and usually need an 8 in these dresses, I could have used a 10R! Big jump but I have 36D and need the room. Sadly, I changed after the ceremony because I was so uncomfortable. Make sure you get room for your chest if your a bigger size.

This dress is awesome!

I ordered this dress because of the high-Lo style. I'm very petite so I wanted something that I knew wouldn't be too long. The length hit above my ankles enough to show my shoes (I wore 3.5" heels) and give me a short train in the back. The dress has a ribbed corset sewn into it that hooks in the back and the zipper closes over it. I normally wear 00/0P in dresses and this one fit too snug with a normal bra but didn't offer enough support to go without. I almost wore the 2R but found a thin enough strapless bra day of the event to wear the 0. Both sizes had obvious repairs done to the bottom hem but they didn't affect the appearance. Overall, it was great. Heavy fabric perfect for cooler weather and the dress has pockets!

Beautiful material that draped well

RTR sent me this dress - after I found out my first dress choice was too big. And I chose to wear the 4L because the 2L although it looked a little better on, it felt a bit too snug. I wore two inch heels - both the 2L and 4L were a bit too long but I managed just fine. The dress is beautiful and it received many compliments.

Fit like a glove and looked amazing! Would have given 5/5 if not for the protruding underwire in the waist area. It gave me a great line but nearly drew blood. Pain is beauty!

Amazing formal dress with great look, fabric and pockets make it stand out on top

I rented this for our annual area Heart Gala fundraiser. It was the perfect formal dress and I felt so good and comfortable in this dress and got so many compliments. The thick material was perfect for winter and the color was gorgeous! The pockets make this dress so much fun too! I also rented the Ella Carter Ashley necklace which added the perfect touch to the outfit. I rented both the size 2 and size 4 after reading the reviews. I normally would wear a size 4, but having a smaller chest and upper body the size 4 was huge in the top and I ended up downsizing to the 2 which fit perfectly. The dress is a bit long in the back if you are a shorter person, even with heels so I just needed to be cautious when I was walking sometimes. Overall I loved this dress and the fit and style was amazing!

Beautiful dress!

This dress is lovely. Made of very thick, luxurious fabric. It also has pockets. I am very long in the torso and the waist hit me in a strange place. It made me look very heavy/pregnant. I wore my back up dress.

Loved this dress! Very warm and small on top. Loved the pockets!

I ordered the 8L but ended up wearing the 6L backup. I'm a true pear shape with a small chest and this fit perfectly. I'm 5'10" and wore 2 1/2 inch heels and the back of the dress still touched the floor. The fabric is very heavy. It was probably in the mid-60s outside and I was comfortable so definitely not a dress for the summer heat. Loved having pockets and the fabric is really pretty and forgiving.

Easy to wear and very elegant

The fit was great and the dress is structured enough that you can go without a bra without having to pull it up all night. Pockets in a dress are always a nice addition and I was even able to hold my iPhone 6 Plus in the pockets. The top is very slimming and flattering.

So many compliments on this dress!

Unfortunately I was having too much fun at this wedding and forgot to get a photo of this dress :( Fit great, although I knew it would. I wore the 10L since I had already rented the black and white color blocked version of this dress for another wedding last November so I knew it would fit! The blue and black color is beautiful, the pattern is beautiful, and the fit is very flattering especially for someone who is smaller on top and bigger on the bottom! The only complaint about the dress itself is that my heel kept getting caught in the back hem of the dress when I walked. Luckily I never tripped! Maybe the hem needs to be sewn up better or tighter so it doesn't catch I don't know. The only reason I had to give this 4 stars instead of 5 was the service. I was getting out of town Thursday after work and was still waiting for the dress at 5pm. I know they only guarantee delivery up to 8pm, but I was willing to chance since I've rented here enough and they always delivered around 5pm. Well, when I got on the phone with RTR they advised the dress hadn't left the warehouse in NJ yet and they can't deliver until 8pm. I ended up having to leave work early and heading to the messenger service to intercept the dress off of the truck when it got there around 6pm. After a lot of waiting for the messengers to comb through everyone's orders the finally found it and I was able to catch my train! So it all worked out in the end, just had to deal with some last minute stress that I may have been left with no dress!

Dress was stunning in person and fit great. The regular length is a little longer than shown.

Dress fit great and was beautiful in person. Length was a little long compared to photo and I had the regular. But it was perfect for our event and I had many compliments about it. Came on time and SO easy to send back.

This was my first RTR experience and it couldn't have gone better. Loved the fancy bag!

The length was a little longer in the front than it should have been because I'm petite and the sizes were only regular. I was worried that it would be awkward and wish the hem was 2 or 3 inches shorter, but I pulled it off and got a million compliments. I'm a 32DD and didn't need to wear a bra because the built in support was great. Pockets were awesome! I didn't even need a clutch.

Lots of compliments

I wanted to wear the other dress I ordered but the seam was coming apart. This dress was a great material and a good second option. A little heavy but perfect for a winter wedding. I really needed the 12 but it wasn't available. The dress was a little big but just made sure to stand up straight. The structure of the dress kept it up.

The dress is very pretty. My hubby loved it. The boning was uncomfortable but I believe it's because it has been rented a few times. Not at all heavy. Received many compliments. The blue is very low key in person but comes through when photographed. Would rent again

This dress was super unique and I got a ton of compliments on it! Even more beautiful in person!

It fit perfectly! I am 5'5" and the regular length was perfect. The boning was pretty stiff but it actually was beneficial because it held up the dress really well. The only con was that the zipper was super tough to zip up.

Pretty fabric

I'm usually a 2 but it was unavailable and based on some of the reviews I thought I could get away with sizing up but I was swimming in it. The zipper was also messed up on mine so even if it had fit I don't know if I would have been able to wear it. The material was very heavy but absolutely gorgeous! I loved the pattern & the pockets! I may try to rent this again in a smaller size for a different upcoming wedding if available. I definitely recommend going with your actual size or even down a size (unless you are extremely top heavy) as its not fitted in the hips making it somewhat forgiving!
