This dress was classy and modern all at once. Pretty comfortable. Little short.
Narrow through hips, and I don't have hips. But other than that, very comfortable and forgiving.

Curve-hugger!
I was a little nervous about sizing because I ordered this last-minute and there were no back-ups, but this ended up fitting PERFECTLY and hugged every curve. It would probably be hard to go crazy on the dance floor in this because it is so fitted in the hips/thighs. Because of the open back I went braless but used pasties since the liner is a little thin. The length was also perfect with 3 or 3.5" heels. Overall this was a big winner: classy, fun, and a little sexy!

Great dress - tons of compliments!
This was a beautiful choice for a black-tie wedding. I got tons of compliments. The dress is cut slim through the hips/thighs and is on a bias so it will hug every imperfection. The dress worked out perfectly for me and ran true to size. I wore a L since the reviews said it runs short, and I'm really glad I got the L. I wore 2.5' heels and it was just long enough.

I was told how gorgeous I looked more than I can remember, it was amazing.
Okay, this dress was stunning. The fit on my torso and hips was flawless. Cons to this dress- I ordered a regular which was slightly too short so I had to wear flats. I'm only slightly over 5'6 so that was surprising. The fit below the knees didn't make it impossible to walk but I constantly had to tell my boyfriend to take smaller steps because I couldn't take a normal length stride due to the mermaid fit. I've never worn a mermaid fit so this could be common and I just wasn't aware. Either way, I'd definitely wear this dress again.

Elegant, comfortable dress for a formal event!
I was nervous about what to wear to a black tie wedding at 4 months pregnant, but this dress was the perfect solution. It is looser up top and very fitted through the skirt, so while it doesn't necessary "hide" the beginnings of a baby bump, it creates a smooth, flattering line that somewhat accentuates it. :) I was still able to wear my usual size (BARELY), but I'd suggest sizing up if you're worried about the tightness of the skirt or have slightly bigger baby bump. The only reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 was because the actual dress I received was a little worn, but overall a great rental!

I was about to give up on RTR until I got this dress.
I've rented several dresses from RTR and nothing has made me feel special, nothing has garnered compliments until this dress. I had several people tell me how lovely it was and someone even asked where I got it. It was perfect, lovely. As someone else has stated, you cannot wear a bra with this dress due to the open keyhole back. The good news is that the top is lose so going bra less isn't noticeable. The bad news is that the inside slip cannot be adjusted and it hangs a little low showing way too much side boob. I'd vote for double sided tape with this dress. In regards to length I got the regular. I'm 5'4 and wore 3" heels and thought it was perfect. I wish I could keep this dress though I don't know where I would wear it to as dressy occasions are few and far between for me. This dress is a winner.

Classic and Glam
I was not looking forward to picking out a dress for a wedding only 3 months after having a baby, but this dress made me feel beautiful! I normally would wear a 4 but it was just a little snug in the hips, so I went with the 6, which was just a little loose. I'm 5'7" and the long was a perfect length with heels. To avoid bra straps showing in the back, I used a backless stick on bra.

Elegant and form fitting dress
I was a little nervous about how this would fit my body type since I have small chest and large hips/thighs but it was very flattering for a form fitting dress. I got the long- and it just hovered over the floor when I was barefoot, so if you plan on wearing very high heels it might look a little weird. My heels were about 1.5 inches and it worked okay. Overall I was very happy with the dress.

The dress fit perfectly. I felt like the best dressed girl at the event!
LOVE THIS DRESS. It's perfect for girls who have hips. I was in a 42R and it fit perfectly in the waist and covered my hips where they were showing curves but I could move around. The backless element added a fun surprise and, because of the lace, I was able to go without a bra. I was told by my stylist friend the dress was "perfect". I would recommend for girls around 5'6" as you can pair with 2-3" heels and it seems tailored perfectly.

Black lace and sophisticated dress style
The dress fit great. I am usually a size 4 and wore the 42 (I am 5'8 but never wear tall heels, if I had worn a 3 inch heel I would have needed the long). It was formal and conservative but snug over my bottom which made it flirty. Very pleased!

Unforgettable Black Tie Wedding, lots of tuxes, beautiful gowns - got many compliments on our look!
Loved this dress however I didn't plan in advance and our event was right at prom and wedding season. Had to take a smaller size than I should have. Normally a 6 but fabric content described a bit of stretch, so I accepted a 4 (42), with no back up size available. Well, the outside had some give but the inner "slip" didn't at all. And a mermaid cut, meaning I couldn't walk well, let alone negotiate stairs! No matter - I probably was more graceful than usual because of it :D Gorgeous dress, just a tad small for me but I knew that going in. Customer reviews and photos were valuable in choosing the Long since I wanted the hem to just hit the floor in my 2" heels. Bracelet was sparkly but subtle

Mermaid cut too snug in thighs
Loved this dress but it was too snug from the hips through the knees. I didn't end up wearing the dress because I was afraid I'd never make it up stairs if I encountered any!

Gorgeous! Super comfortable and so very classy! Used it for our Engagement shoot and it was perfect!
I wish the dress was a little longer. I got the 40R and the 42R and the 40 fit perfectly, but was a little shorter than I liked. Luckily I really like my shoes, but sometimes as I walked it shimmied up and I would have to pull it down so I'm not flooding.

Beautiful dress, but WAYYY too short. Had to return. I'm 5'4" - 5'5" and the regular length was too short -- not even kind of passable. Unfortunately, had to return, but the dress itself was beautiful, and RTR customer service helped me immediately to facilitate the return. If you have any doubts, go with the LONG length!

I received tons of compliments! The dress was very classy.
The dress is very fitted throughout the waist and hips with little to no stretch. I probably should have gone up a size for comfort. The top is very roomy and comfortable. The sleeves are fitted, also without any stretch. I wore a Nu-bra with the dress and was comfortable all night. The regular length was unavailable, so I got the long length and was very glad I did. The regular would have been too short in my heels. The dress was classy and perfect for my event.

This dress was perfection.
The 40R is like 2-3in shorter than the 42R. It was very comfortable and is figure flattering. I have a bigger backside, so it was tighter on me in my hip and thigh region. Only complaint is that I had to lift the bottom up about to my knees in order to walk up stairs, or to sit comfortably. By the end of the night after wearing it for a while the material loosened up enough for that issue to go away.

Classy
The dress was very fitted from the waist down, but the looser top and high neckline balanced that out. I thought the dress was comfy and felt really good in it. The only thing I didn't love was that the slip didn't go all the way to the floor, it stopped right above my ankles. I thought it looked funny, but because the event space was dark, I don't think it was too noticeable.

Great dress for a black tie optional gala.
I would typically have ordered the 42R, but it was not available so I crossed my fingers and ordered the 40R. It fit like a glove and looked great. My only hesitation is the length - I am 5'6" and am on the cusp between regular and long dresses. I wore 2-3" heels and felt the dress was a tad short. Higher heels would have looked ridiculous. I almost could have gotten away with flats.

BEAUTIFUL dress!!!!!!!!!! Having this dress fitted through the hips and butt makes this dress sexy, but understated. I didn't need a bra with it, which was nice. In terms of length, i'm 5'9 and the dress was long enough to wear 3" heels.

Figure Flattering Dress for a wedding
I wore this dress to my cousin's wedding in New York. The dress fit me like a glove and was very figure flattering. I felt wonderful in it and despite it being form fitting, it was very comfortable to wear. Since I was traveling from the West Coast and picking up the dress in New York, I had to pack only one pair of heels. I was worried about the other reviews that the R length was too short for heels but luckily, my heels worked (I'm 5'5" and my heels were roughly about 2.5-3" tall). The dress does have a low back, so I used a low-back extender with my normal bra. The dress is also tight around the legs, so I had to take small steps unless I hiked the skirt up. All in all, I really loved the dress. It made me feel very elegant and even though it was black, it stood out in the sea of cocktail dresses.

Stunning Black Tie Dress
This dress was absolutely perfect. I am 5'3" and ordered the 38R and the 40R. Both were the perfect length with heels (3 to 4 inch). Strangely, I went with the smaller size (38R) because I felt like it had more room in the legs to walk comfortably. However, there was no huge difference in the sizes. I would absolutely recommend this dress. I got many complements.

Absolutely loved this dress!
This dress was so chic, a little sexy and fit like a glove. I am 5'5" and the long was perfect with 3" heels on. It was a little narrow in the hips making it difficult to get up stairs and sit down, but it was so figure-flattering and made me feel so pretty. Order your second dress a size up just in case though. Easy to dance in and was perfect for my sorority formal. Would rent again.

Beautiful dress..tons of compliments
I was nervous this dress was not going to fit based on the reviews. I was pleasantly surprised when it did. It was a perfect fit and could not have picked a better choice. Wore to a Dining Out in February. This dress was very comfortable and the sleeves added some much needed warmth. Loved the open back. Very vintage feel. I would definitely rent again and highly recommended. It was a little on the "short" side which was perfect for me. I am 5'3" and wore with a 3" heel making it the perfect length. If you are taller than me for sure order the long!

Beautiful gown; runs SHORT!
This is probably one of the most flattering dresses I have ever ordered from RTR. The lace detail is thick and beautiful, and the dress is super slimming! The only problem is that it runs super short! I ordered the 40R. I am a hair under 5'4, and the dress barely came to the ground in my bare feet! I ordered it for a formal gala, so there was no way I could show up in flat at my height. I definitely recommend ordering this dress, but if you are 5'4 or taller and want to wear heels, order the long!

This is a great dress for a formal affair.
I always wear a size 2 and this dress was small. It barely zipped and was shorter in the length than I would have liked. It was really difficult to sit down in. I did love the dress, it is beautiful and I received many compliments on it, but spanx are not enough. Order one size bigger.

Loved the lace detail!
I wore this to a museum gala and received tons of compliments! It definitely runs small, so I would order a size up for backup. I ordered a size 38R and a 40R and the 40R was pretty tight in the hips and waist (no stretch in this dress), but was still comfortable. I wore a three inch heel and the length was perfect. I absolutely love the lace in this dress, it's so beautiful! The black fabric layer under the lace lays slightly below mid-calf, so you can really see the lace, which is quite unique and lovely.

Show Stopper Dress!
I generally stay away from black because I like bold clothes that stand out. This dress was anything but boring-an absolutely stunning dress. I was told by several strangers at the 1,000 person event I was at that this was the best dress there. It is insanely flattering-feminine but sexy. The lace detail requires nothing more to jazz it up. I may have added a necklace but I was running late and just threw it on and walked out. I disagree with others that it is long. I'm 5'7" and I ordered both a long and a regular. The regular was too short even to wear flats. I wore 3 inch heels with the long and felt like 2 inch heels would have been better given the length. Runs true to size.

Gorgeous evening
I ordered the size 4 and 6 (whatever that translates to in the Euro size). There was no difference in size in the waist, only in the bust. They both ended up being too tight for comfort which was a shame since the dress was GORGEOUS.

You won't be disappointed. Perfect dress
I have to agree with some of the other reviews. The dress runs a bit short. The long was not available in my size for the days I needed but I feel it would have been the perfect length. I'm 5'5" and you could see my 3" heels. This dress in incredible. So comfortable and easy to wear. I would rent this again and again.
