First choice but didn't wear this gown
I had hoped to order this dress in the 4R and 4L, but unfortunately there were no L gowns available for my selected date. I loved the overall look of the dress, but I struggled with the length (which was my initial fear in ordering a floor length dress for the first time). I am 5'8" and planned to wear a 2" heel for the ceremony and immediately switch to flats for the reception. Without any shoe, the 4R dress was just brushing the floor, and I couldn't get past the gap that was visible with a heel. I also felt like there was a bit of extra material at the hips, but otherwise the 4 fit true to size (no room for a strapless bra). If I had the 4L option, this dress would have made its presence known at the wedding!

My original 0P had a snag and I emailed RTR, they responded in mins and shipped out another 0P!
The dress fits true to size but definitely seems more efficient for a girl with a small bust. I was able to rent the 0P (I'm 5'3 and wore 5 in heels) the dress just barley hit the floor. You have to be careful with the tulle as it gets caught easily and will snag. The color is pretty similar to the photo, so elegant. Perfect dress for a black tie wedding! ;)

Everyone loved the dress.
I am 5'7 so the 8 was way to short the 10 was a little to big but it ended up looking great on

Dress fit perfectly
Wore this to my schools winter formal and loved it. I have a curvy body and it fit like a glove and accented all my assets. The length was great with 4 inch heels and trailed nicely when I didn't wear them. Comfortable to dance in and it doesn't slide all over the place.

Beautiful Color
The dress arrived early afternoon which was perfect! However I didn't feel great in the dress. I've ordered other long dresses from here before with the recommended length however this one was short. The material underneath the sheer overlay was short and there showed my shoes. It is a pretty dress but not the best.

Beautiful color - this dress was a big hit! But it is long!
The color of this dress is beautiful. This dress was perfect for my friend's black tie optional wedding. Renting was great because I had a baby two months before the wedding and had no clue what size to get (and another plus - while the dress was structured and supportive, it was still easy to nurse in). The biggest negative to me was that the dress is long and I didn't feel like I could wear the regular length - even with my tallest shoes. It's a couple of layers at the bottom and made of a delicate tulle material which I couldn't figure out how to "hem" with fashion tape. I ended up going with the 0P instead of the 2 solely because of the length (& still wore 3 inch heels). I think a bigger size would have looked more flattering since it was tight in both the bust and midsection but it looks like 0 is the only size where there is a petite option. So short girls should bust out their tall shoes and busty girls may want to size up!

Beautiful dress for hour glass figures
This dress is beautiful. I am in between sizes and ordered the 10 and 12. My hips run on the more wide size so I was surprised the 10L fit perfectly. It also helped hide my post partum belly that isn't completely gone just get. I was able to wear the dress without a bra even though my breasts are still pretty large from breastfeeding. The dress has a built in bra which helps control them. Overall the dress was beautiful and fit very well. I received several compliments on it. I didn't give it 5 stars bc of two reasons 1- the bottom of the dress was a bit worn out and 2- the dress has underwires in the bodice area and they were a bit uncomfortable while sitting down for a long time. The underwires weren't long enough and they would dig into my stomach so I had to readjust the dress several times while sitting. All that being said I was happy with my rental and would rent this dress again.

Great dress.
This dress is well-made; it has a structured bodice that is very forgiving. The color is beautiful and unique in person, just as it is online. The bottom of the dress catches the wind every so slightly while walking, which is an elegant touch. It's simple elegance. The 6R was too short for me (5'7"), even with low (2") heels. Looks great on hourglass figures.

This dress is great for sucking in the not so fit areas. I have a mommy tummy really bad but I wasn't bothered by it in this form fitting dress.

It was perfect for a garden wedding.
I am about 5'7" and wore flats, the hem was perfect. The material is diaphanous and ethereal. I added a belt to break up the dress a little bit and mix in some other materials (it was a leather belt). Very peacock inspired color.

Absolutely AMAZING dress
I have never felt more beautiful in another dress. This dress fits every curve absolutely perfectly and its color is SO gorgeous. I typically wear a size 4, but the 4 didn't fit my waist as well as the 2. The 2, although, was super tight around my chest and it was kinda hard to breathe BUT It looked really good and that is all that matters, right? Other than the tight chest, the dress was really comfortable and I was honestly sad to take it off. RENT THIS DRESS. It made my senior prom perfect and my experience with RTR was amazing, I will most definitely be renting again :)

Not form fitting enough :-(
I have a very small waist in relation to my hips and this was just not flattering on me. I run between a 10 and 12 depending on the dress and I assumed, like most designer dresses, that the dress would be better as a 12. It was big, but they didn't have the 10 available. Not sure if that would even help. I think this dress looks great on super petite women, it's so gorgeous!

Could've been more flattering.
The dress was too large overall. The bodice accentuated my hips in a way that was unflattering and was large in the bust and waist. The length was also an issue -- even with 4 inch heels, people stepped on the dress (including me) the whole night. I really wanted to like this one, but it was not the right fit for my body.

Beautiful but no structure
Absolutely LOVED the color and style of this dress. The woven pattern of the fabric across the bodice is exactly how I imagined. The problem is that the bodice has no structure which is is bad when you have a thick waste.. I looked pregnant! Even with spanks. Also, the over skirt is at least an inch longer than the dress. I had 4.5 heels which cleared the dress EXCEPT for the lacey overskirt. I walked around and I tripped constantly, either stepping on the front or getting my heel caught in the back. If I lose the weight I want to, I would think about getting higher heels and try again. And the 12 was a bit big. The lace does stretch, unlike what the description says. I wish I had gotten the 10 instead of a 14 as the backup size.

Black Tie Wedding Approved!
The dress was gorgeous but was too large on me and was also very long. I made it work but would've looked a lot better if it was tighter and a few inches shorter.

Pretty color, fits well but not super fitted on the hips, slightly long
Wore this to a wedding. Fits well, a little large because not very fitted in the hips so I went a size down from my usual size. A little long with 3 inch heels but didn't feel like I would trip or anything. Rich deep green color.

Beautiful dress that arrived on time!
I used the smaller size and it ended up being a little loose. I have a very petite body so I was constantly pulling the dress up. The back of the dress is very low as well, often showed my bra. The fabric in the middle of the dress tended to bunch up when sitting or dancing which made it inconvenient. The color was beautiful though and I got a lot of compliments on the dress!

The dress was not worn because it just didn't really add anything for me.
The dress seemed a little stretched out because of others wearing it. It's very beautiful but I just didn't like it on me.

Beautiful color! Truly truly gorgeous blue. Very light weight
I selected this dress bc it was very similar to my wedding dress in the soft sweetheart drop waist top and then soft tulle skirt. It really helps define a woman's body in a sophisticated way. However, because this dress doesn't have a corset, it just kinda hung. It's a heavy dress and it pulls down a bit since it's not anchored on anything. After being zipped up, it just kinda sits and adds about an inch to your waist and doesn't help define your curves. I would definitely size down with this dress. It was extremely pretty still and I had a lot of compliments but just wasn't quite right. (sorry for the washed out picture, the flash was horrible!!!)

Very nice evening gown, lots of compliments.
This dress is cute and flattering to the figure. I followed the advice from other women who have rented this dress, which may have been a mistake. I am usually VERY true to size, so if it says size 6, then it fits like a glove. I went with 6L so that I could wear heels and not have it be too short like some people talked about. Not only was the dress too long, but it was also too big around! I could have probably done a 4 or 4L in this dress. Because the order form kept forgetting to include an option 2 dress, it didn't send me one! So, I made myself some straps to hook in the inside of the dress (it has the loops already). With the straps and some body tape I was able to keep from falling out and flashing my husband's co-workers!

Classy and elegant
A beautiful color that will make you stand out in a sea of black dresses with out being too flashy, The color is a really rich and saturated teal jewel tone. The material was light and floaty in the skirt, and the ruching at the bodice was perfect for smoothing out the waist/silhouette. The skirt, even in the regular size, was llloonnngg, so I wore my tallest heels, and wound up just picking up the skirt as I moved around the party. A definite crowd pleaser!

Senior Prom
This dress was for my daughter's 2015 senior prom. She is very picky about dresses. This was her top pick. When it arrived we thought it was way to big, there were creases and wrinkles around the hip that made the dress look too large. But after hanging up for 24 hours the dress straightened out and looked perfect , and I also discovered an interior corset at the last minute that made the dress fit like a glove. How'd I miss that the first time? A size 4p would have been perfect but the 6p worked just fine, she just had to readjust the hip several times a night to get it back where it belonged. Her measurements are 35-36" bust, 28" waist, 37" hip. The petite length was just right with 4.5" wedge heels. This dress is very versatile in regards to style, it can be "beauty queen" style but it worked well as the boho hippie style my daughter wanted.

I felt pretty and ladylike. A simple, sophisticated choice for a formal affair. Easily dressed up.
I ordered a 6L, it was too loose and didn't lay properly. I sized down to 4R, which was more than long enough (I wore 2.5" heels, and was still stepping on the hem of the dress). I'm not a size 4 but the material gave enough for me to get into the dress comfortably (and still breathe). The dress stayed up with minimal tugging (my bra kept showing in the back). I'm small-busted. I was impressed with the fact that the dress stayed up even when it was a size too big.

Great customer service.
This dress was beautiful!! Perfect bridesmaid's dress. It fit a bit big from the hip area, and the ruching around hips/butt was a bit puffy,not as close as it supposed to be. I got a backup dress but ended up still wearing it. I got lots of compliments!! Right angle in pictures hid the parts where it fit big. I loved my backup dress so I will def rent it next!

Wore the dress for a military ball.
Loved the dress. The jewels were the talk of the evening, though. I absolutely loved the necklace and earrings! The dress runs slightly large but not much. The size 12 was snug on my hips but fit great on top. The 14 fit my hips better but was so big on top that there's no way I could have worn it. The regular length was perfect for me. I'm 5'7" and wore 3 inch heels. The dress just touched the floor.

Aside from being a bit large, the dress was dripping opulance. A size smaller than my regular 8 would have been perfect. The dress was long for my height, even in 5" heels

Flow-y dress with a drop waist - super cute, if it were long enough for me!
I wish I had ordered a 4L since the mid-section was really loose although the bust fit fine. It was also a bit too short for 6"0', even in flats. I opted for the alternate dress for my event. The fabric is stunning in person and the ruching was tastefully placed around the stomach area.

I wore this dress to the 56th Annual National Capital Emmy Awards where my husband won 2 Emmy's!
The dress overall was amazing. I got compliments ALL NIGHT! The dress fit perfectly in the waist but was a bit snug at the chest. Overall looked and felt great. Was a little long and had to pick it up when navigating the stairs. Loved it!

This dress was gorgeous, but was definitely tight in the top and a little loose in the stomach area for me. Regardless, it was a great dress to wear to a formal wedding.

Made me feel like a queen!
I loved that it fit like a glove without suffocating me. Even though it was strapless, the dress was light enough that I didn't have to tug it up during the event. It was easy to move in and pretty comfortable. It was a little lighter in color than expected but still very beautiful. It was a thrill to cross the Seminar stage in it to pick up my Court of Sales diamond ring in this gown.

I loved the color and texture of this dress, but the fit was unkind to my curves :(
this puppy was TIGHT. and not terribly forgiving in the hips or bust. Wore my other dress instead.
