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!

The customer service is amazing.!

I ordered the 44 and 46. The 46 was way too large. The 44 had a few stains and RTR overnighted another size 44 to me. The customer service was so fast and friendly. Overall the dress was nice and I enjoyed it. I will try another next time.

RTR made it so easy

Fabric did not give, I'm larger on bottom, so dress was a bit tighter around my hips. The color was really beautiful.

Long, comfortable, conservative, nice color, awkward pleats.

Almost exchanged this for a smaller size. Loose in the hips and waist. Also very long. I'm 5'9" and it was past my knees. The pleats did not lay flat on the bust and that bothered me a little bit. Due to the shape of the neckline, my bra peeked out occasionally (luckily I have a bra in this exact color!). I did have to iron it; it wrinkled easily. The color was nice and it was comfortable, but a little too conservative for my taste. It might be a good dress for a family or a business event. Maybe I'd feel differently if i had sized down. I wear a size 8-10 normally, and I would recommend getting the 44 and 46. Lastly, as many have said, the material is more casual than it looks in the model photo- not shiny, just a cotton type fabric. I dressed it up with more formal jewelry and heels though. This could work for day or night.

Great color and length

I love the color of this dress, perfect for a spring wedding. I also loved the length. I'm a bit on the tall side so finding dresses that are an appropriate length (esp when I sit down) is sometimes hard. It is not a satin finish so it can be dressed up or down. Also, the pleats at the top sometimes seemed to lay a bit funny but nothing anyone else would notice.

Hi! I need some fitting advice before I rent for my bridesmaids. Two of them wear a size 6 but one of them has size 37 hips which on the chart is a size 8 but she's a size 6 every where else. You have the same build as them, do you think she could fit into this dress with 37"inch hips? She's skinny so I think a 6 would look great on her I just want to make sure the dress would zip up. Maybe I should get two sizes for her? What do you think? Thanks!
JenniferMay 3, 2015
I did order the 6 & the 8 but the 8 was too big up top since I'm not size 8 big up there. I mainly just have big hips. I definitely wore Spanx and it was tight. The fabric kind of has a pleated wrinkly look anyway so having it rise up and pulling it down was annoying but didn't make it look bad in pictures or just standing around. I'd say if they want to feel comfortable try an 8 but a 6 would definitely fit if they're like me.

This dress made me feel so beautiful!

This dress was perfect for my body type. It was very form fitted which worked well for me because I have a straighter slimmer body type. The color was vibrant and pretty and the cut was gorgeous. Very classy. Definitely was a head turner. I received many compliments throughout the night! Tip to ladies who are on the bustier side, the material is not stretchy and especially on top, does not have a lot of give. I'm not very busty so it work very well for me but if I was it would have been difficult. I would definitely recommend this dress, it made my night very special! Just a heads up, it is form fitting, and the material is very revealing but if you are confident in your body and yourself go for it! It's a total knock out!

Beautiful color

Beautiful dress, but Fits tight through the hips. I wore one size up from my normal, and loved the fit. I found the straps to be just slightly long, but still wearable. I loved the color, and felt really pretty all night.

Great fit, beautiful color

This dress fit me like a glove! It wasn't my first choice but when I tried it on I loved it. The material is not stretchy at all so i'd definitely recommend going a size up as well just in case. The top of this dress is really tight, i didn't need to wear a bra. The shoulders were a little big as well. The color was really pretty and one of a kind at the wedding I went to!

Rented for a work retreat casino night event. Lots of compliments!

Dress fit small across bust. Hard to zip by yourself through the ruching. Loved it though! Beautiful once I got it on. Tons of compliments! As others have noted, it is a cotton dress. Looks more formal than it feels.

Great first experience.

As other people have stated the straps are a bit long but not to where they fell off my shoulders. The dress was very comfortable. The zipper was a little tough, I needed a little help with that. I felt great in the dress and was able to dance the night away in it.

Beautiful color and fit me like a glove!

I typically wear between a 6 or 8. I chose the 44. It fit like a glove! The 46 gave me a bit more breathing room, but looked a little boxy and didn't hug my curves the way the 44 did. The only con is that the dress is starting to look a bit worn. Some of the fabric is fading along the edges, but truly nothing you would notice unless really looking up close. Overall, beautiful dress! I received MANY compliments!

RTR never fails to step up and make you the center of attention!

This dress was a gorgeous color, but the bust area was very small and tight and I am not big chested so for a bigger chest this dress would not work, as it has ZERO stretch! It also looks shiny and in person it was not.

"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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

Gorgeous! Runs a bit large

I wasn't sure whether I was a 48 or a 46, and as it turns out, I probably should have gotten a 44 - that said, I made the 46 work and loved it! It's a very pretty color and really pops in pictures. Surprisingly roomy in the chest and long without being too long - it hit right above my knee. It's not quite as "shiny" of a fabric as it appears on the model.

Wasn't able to wear this to the party

While it was a pretty dress, it actually was too large up top. I wear a size 8 regularly and was surprised to find that this dress gapped around the bust. I wasn't able to wear this since it was too big and the straps were too long. Also, the pleats didn't quite fold properly, making this dress look a little top heavy on me. The color is also a little duller than pictured here.

A Stunner

This dress was spot on. Gorgeous, stand out color. I love the style of this dress so much, that I ordered it in the rust & can't wait to rent it in yellow! It's just a classic, comfortable dress. Just be careful if you are a B cup or under. The top fits large, you may want to size down.

The fabric isn't as nice as it looks, and it runs too big on top

I ordered this dress for a wedding, but when it came it was too large on top (I am a 32 D) and the fabric wasn't silky, as it seems on the photos. I returned it.

Beautiful dress, very wearable, perfect for a summer wedding!

I am smallish on top, but with a bit of a booty. I normally wear a 4-6, the 46 (size 6) was huge on me. The 44 (size 4) fit pretty well. I would have preferred it a little bit tighter, but all around it looked good. The straps kept sliding off, as many other reviewers mentioned. The color was pretty and the dress was comfortable. Looked great! No real complaints!

My hot Banana Republic backup dress

I'm very curvy with a narrow waist and ribcage. This dress in a size 42 did nothing for my shape, I didn't bother trying on the 44. Maybe If I had tried a 40, it would have worked but that was not a risk I was willing to take since it says to order up a size. I will live to RTR another day.

Couldn't wear it.

I normally wear a 10 or 8, which is what I ordered according to RTR's size conversions provided in the order drop-downs (sizes 48 and 46). I tried on the 46 first and it fit on the bottom, but the top was so big that there is no way I could wear the dress. I am technically a pear in that my hips measure slightly larger than my bust, but I am by no means small chested (34DD), so this was an odd problem for me to have. Would have been cute if it fit.

Formal wedding

This dress was a beautiful and vibrant color! I am 5'5 with a pear shaped body. It fit perfectly if not a little bit loosely in the hips but it was probably two sizes to big in the bust area. I am a 34B cup but I had to pin the bust area and still struggled with some bra straps being visible but overall I would recommend the dress! Very comfortable, did wrinkle easily but I received a lot of compliments and I felt beautiful.
