My 3rd RTR!
So.. I didn't know how to rate this. It was small in the chest area, like extremely tight and I don't have a huge chest by any means. It was looser in the stomach area. For my height, it reached to the knees which is a little long for me but might be perfect for all of you lucky tall people! Great color in person and the fabric hides any lumps or bumps you might want to hide!

Did not like this dress.
It wasn't flattering on my frame (athletic) at all. The six was too small in the bust but the 8 was too large in the tummy - it made me look like I was trying to hide a pregnancy. :( Sadly, I didn't wear it.

Pretty but didn't end up wearing it
I ordered this as the safe bet but ended up not wearing it. It felt a lot more conservative that it came across on the website. Probably because it ended up being below the knee on me. As many others have said it did seem to run a bit small. Pretty dress though.

"NICE, RUNS BIG"
Beautiful color and nice material, but horrible fit. I'm sure it would work well for some people, but it didn't work at all for me. It's a little big at the top which is normal for me because my chest size is small and is slightly long if you are on the petite side.

Beautiful color - fit perfectly except for the top of my ribcage. Really tight in the chest area/under boobs and straps were sort of loose. Perfect fit around waist. Size up was too big and size down was too tight to zip my chest in. Wish there was an in-between size! I didn't end up wearing it to the event but it was a really pretty dress. Wish it had fit my body better.

I loved the way it looked!
I went to an awards dinner for my boyfriend and this dress was amazing! The dress fit really well. The description of the dress stated that I should size up if I had a larger bra size which I did. This ended up being a good decision. The dress was a little tight around my chest and waist but I felt very comfortable in it. The color was amazing. I got a ton of compliments all night. I paired it with a turquoise and gold necklace and nude high heels. I would definitely rent it again.

Really enjoyed wearing this. It was a great fabric..a polished cotton.
I rented an 8 and I am usually a typical 8. The top part of the dress was a bit wide, but I used the tape to attach it to my bra and it was perfect. Would rent it again!

I felt like an absolute knockout in this dress. It's absolutely gorgeous! I highly recommend this on
This dress is AH-MAZING! I got tons of compliments and felt so sexy and classy in this dress. It fits very true to size, is actually very comfortable and flattering. It is definitely fitted through the waist though so I'd say if you're iffy get the next size up for your second size.I am quite short so I had to fold the hem up and pin it(but no one noticed). The color is rich and gorgeous and I liked it so much that I might rent this same style in another color for another occasion.

Sophisticated look for a wedding
I had originally ordered the 46 and 48 because the website said these were the same as a 10 and 12 respectively. However, when I got the dresses, the tag on them actually showed that the 46 is the same as a 12 and the 48 is the same as a 14. So both were a little large but when I called RTR, I was able to receive the 44 (the 10 according to the tag) the next day. Alas, it was too small so I stuck with the 46 but appreciated the customer service. The dress itself was comfortable and appropriate for a summer wedding. I wore a strapless bra to give me a little more shape since the cut of the dress flattened me out a bit. The ruching tended to pull and flip throughout the night (as seen in the picture) but was easily fixed and most people probably didn't notice. I got many compliments and appreciated the help with the sizes from the RTR stylists!

I wore this to a girlfriends wedding. It was Fabulous!!
Love this dress!! The color is beautiful, it fit like a glove, was extremely comfortable to sit, dance and stand. Couldn't be happier with my first experience with RTR. I paired it with a RTR Kate Spade necklace & RTR Kenneth Jay Lane cuff with the help of Emily and Jessica. The two of them are definitely an asset to RTR.

Loved the color but didn't fit.
I ordered this with the back up size just in case. I loved the color and thought the fit would be great. I am petite and at 5'1 it went past my knee. Also the straps were a little big on me. If you are tall and have a big chest I'd say get this dress. It really did fit like a glove. the material isn't so dressy but you can dress it up. I ended up wearing my backup dress.

Designer that runs big???
Kudos to you, house of Moschino! You have real sized fit models! Silly me ordered my size and one up since most designers have fit models the size of q-tips. Instead, I had to wear my go-to LBD for an anniversary night out with my husband.

Beautiful dress. Color is unique, quality is great. Would rent again
I ordered the 6 and 8 and the 8 was perfect. It's a bit tight around the rib cage but once it's zipped its really comfortable. Note the zipper is tricky around the pleats so try it out, especially if you don't have help. Fabric is great, not as shiny as the photo

Amazing customer service from Serena! Loved the dress I ended up wearing!
RTR contacted me one day before my event to tell me both sizes of the original dress I ordered were damaged beyond repair. Serena was extremely helpful in letting me pick 4 other options to try! Although I did not get the dress I originally chose, it was fun to try some new styles and I decided on this one. She also made sure they got to my house by noon before the event date, what service! This dress is GORGEOUS. I wore it to 2 weddings I had in the same night. No issues all evening, very comfortable, good to dance in. Fantastic color for a fall wedding. Only con was the straps are a little long (could be fixed with the fashion tape). I have a long torso and they really only bunched up on me while sitting, if you make sure to pull it down before you sit I think you would be fine. I think it is pretty true to size, I wear a 6 pant and tried the 6 and an 8. Once I got into the 6 I didn't even bother with the 8 it would have been way too big. A great choice!

Nice conservative dress, beautiful fabric
I rented this dress as my backup. I ended up not wearing it because it had a very "bridesmaidy" feel (albeit a very nice brides maid dress). It fit well and the fabric was a beautiful satin that was flattering.

Very flattering
I went for my original dress and didn't wear this purple beauty. It was a beautiful dress though, great color, but a bit snug in the ribcage. I felt like I wouldn't have been very comfortable sitting down so I didn't wear it. I'm right between an 8 and a 10 and only tried the 8. Would have looked beautiful though.

The beautiful bride complimented my dress!
This is one of my favorite colors! I've had my eye on this dress for a long time and I'm so glad I finally got to wear it. Unfortunately the 42 (size 6) was a little big on me. I usually order a size up (44 or 8) as my back up but this time I wish I had the smaller size (40 or 4). The length was fine but I wish the dress was more fitted through the bust and hips the way it is on the model. Otherwise, the dress is very comfortable and the fabric is rich - thick with a bit of sheen and stretch. Also, no special bra necessary for this one. I'd definitely rent again in the smaller size!

Ran too large!
While the color of the dress was absoluely gorgeous, the fit was too baggy. If you want it to fit the way it did in the picture I would go a size down.

Wasn't able to wear the dress
I ordered 42 (4) and 44 (6) as a back up. Unfortunately I wasn't able to wear the dress. The 42 was a little big through the waist and hips. However, the bigger issue was the ruching in the front and back didn't lay properly - it was pressed out unevenly and in the back the gathering was very loose and didn't look right. The dress wasn't as dressy as I expected - it was a cotton and looked different than the photo. We were out of town, so fortunately I brought a dress just in case. This was my first rental with RTR so I was really disappointed that it didn't work. However, I called when we returned home and RTR was so fantastic and very apologetic that the dress didn't work. They gave me a credit and encouraged me to give them another try. I have an event in April, so I will definately try again.

Great color, but runs a little large
I would highly recommend this dress (and color) for anyone with olive skin. I was getting compliments all night on how well the color complimented my natural skin tone, which is always a plus. My biggest complaint is that while the dress fit exceptionally well around my knees, everything above it was a little too big. I generally wear a two but decided to go with a four this time because Christmas saw me packing on a few extra pounds that decided to hang out well into January, and I didn't want to have a pudgy tummy at winter formal. In retrospect, I wish I'd gotten the two. I had to tape the straps (which looked positively ridiculous) so that they didn't slip off my shoulders, and the neckline kept popping out around my chest. In photos, I look like an honest-to-God moomoo. The dress isn't slimming whatsoever, and I would say even added weight in photos. It was comfortable for dancing though, which is also a plus. I would say that this dress is a perfect second choice, but if it's a toss up between this and something else, I would say go with the something else.

Not for women with hips
I wish I had known, but the size conversion on the website, and the actual size conversion on the tag on the dress is completely different. A 40 is a 6, 42 is an 8, 44 is a 10, and 46 is a 12 in US sizes. With that I said, I usually wear an 8, and thought I was ordering an 8 and a 10. What arrived was a the 44 and 46 which are really a 10 and a 12. I'm glad the sizes were larger!! The 10 was very snug in the hips and butt area, but the 12 was just overall too big. The fit isn't very kind if you are not straight and narrow. It is a gorgeous dress and I received many compliments. Just be aware of sizing.

Beautiful but fit is a little unusual
First the cons: the zipper was almost impossible to pull up. The straps were a little too long and I couldn't wear a regular bra because the top of the cups peeked out of the dress. It also ran big. I ordered a 42 (listed as a 4 but fit like a 6) with 40 (listed as a 2 but fit like a 4) as my back up. I was swimming in the 42. The 40 fit nicely but I did have a few extra inches, especially from the hips down. I think a size down would have been perfect. Pros: beautiful color, elegant, comfortable, and I got quite a few compliments. I would definitely recommend it for the price.

Beautiful fabric and color.
This was made for ladies much larger in the ribs and chest than I am! While the skirt fits true to size, this is for a full figure. I wasn't able to wear either size, sadly.

Wish I could have worn it
As many other people have written in their reviews, there is something screwy with the sizes that RTR has listed for this dress. Following the lead of other people's size conversions in their reviews, I ordered the 44 and 46 (assuming/hoping I was really ordering a 10 and 12). Like it so often happens with sheath dresses and my body (smaller size on top than in the hips/bum), the 10 (44) was too small and snug around the hips but the 12 (46) was huge in the upper body section and the bottom half was really too large as well as leaving this pooch of fabric at the lower back section right above my bum. Length would have been great for a wedding though, and I am 5'10". The fabric was a nice cotton with a sheen, along with a liner (always makes the look so much nicer). Color was beautiful. Just be forewarned about the size issue!

Great dress
This dress was great! It was a little tad bit loose in the bust area. It was a great color had many complements on the dress. Had a great time dancing in it. Fabric was a bit stretchy. The zipper was a little hard to un zip and zip but other than that it was a great dress.

Beautiful Color and Great fit!
Sorry! These pictures aren't the best, but the only ones I had of more than just my top and up. This dress was BEAUTIFUL and classy!. I got SO many compliments on it, and my date kept telling me he loved me in it. The shoulder straps were a little big, but nothing fashion tape couldn't remedy. I'm usually a size 6 (44) but the 4 (42) fit me the best (YAY! Working out has been paying off!). I would totally rent this dress again for another event, and am actually considering renting it in blue for another wedding I have in June! There is no doubt this dress gets 5 stars from me! For fit help, I'm 5'2", 129 lbs, and a 34DD/DDD, and had no problems with the chest of the dress. I did have to pull it down sometimes and adjust, but no more than normal.

A little long, but otherwise a perfect fit!
This fit like it was custom made for my body! The only thing was that it was a little too long. It didn't wrinkle as much as I thought it would and the color is beautiful. Surprisingly comfortable! In the picture, it looked silky but it was actually more like a cotton material with a satin finish.

Amazing fit, feel, and style!
This dress was perfect for the event and for my body type! It fit like a glove (not a too tight glove, just a very flattering glove). I got tons of compliments and could dance the night away in this very comfortable dress (added bonus of being able to wear a comfortable bra under it). My only issue was that the zipper (due to the folds in the bust) was a bit hard to zip up and I was afraid it would get caught in the fabric. Luckily it didn't, but if you rent the dress just be sure to be patient with the zipper.

First time using RTR and now I'm hooked!
Wore this at a wedding and it fit like a glove - super flattering and form fitting but had enough stretch to dance the night away. I'm very small chested, so not sure how this would fit a larger chest, but I didn't even need to wear a bra since the fabric is so thick which was a huge plus for me - didn't have to spend all night messing with a strapless bra. I'm 5'7 and wish this was just a touch shorter (hit right below the knee), although still classy/sexy because of the fit. The fabric is a little more cottony than I anticipated, which ended up being a good thing as I was worried about it being too formal. Loved the color - kind of a raspberry/fuchsia. Received tons of compliments and would definitely consider renting this again. Word to the wise - make sure you have someone who can help you with the zipper. Because of the sturdy fabric, zipping it up can be difficult. Definitely recommend!

This dress ran really big particularly the top ad straps. With some tweaking I was able to make it work for my engagement photos. I felt amazing and the color is fantastic.

Thought it fit true to size. It was a little long, both in the straps and overall (hit past my knees) but given I'm 5' 4'' this wasn't a surprise

Perfect, for someone over 5'5, otherwise this dress is to long for the average height woman.
The color was beautiful however, the bust area was a bit to large, the straps were to loose and I had trouble with the zipper.

Cute
I received this because the larger size in the color I wanted was no longer available because it was returned in poor condition. I needed the larger size for my chest but the rest of it was just too big. I have a petite frame and it just didn't look right.
