Tall curvy gals, this is for you!

I was able to wear this only because I was mistakenly sent the wrong size. I usually wear a 4, and the 12 kinda worked. Seriously, the size 8 did not even zip up. The cut seems best for gals w tiny waist and larger hip/bust ratio. Definitely size up a lot! And it's a long dress. I'm 5'5" and almost too long for me. The silk fabric is beautiful and the dress is definition of spring!!

Wonderful!!

My husband loved the way this looked on me!! It was very flattering!! Also it runs small. It fit me perfectly but I have been sick and lost about 25-30 lbs. My normal weight is about 120-125 and at that weight the dress never would have got me. I weigh about 101. Will try to rent dress again before I get back to normal. :-)

Size up 2 US sizes if you are bigger on the top

I wear an 8 on the bottom but I'm busty with broad shoulders/back. It was easily 3 to 4 inches too small thought the bust. There is zero give in the fabric. It's beautiful but it's made for very narrowly built women.

A Parisian Surprise !

I loved wearing this dress! It's silky fabric was super light and easy to pack. It looked great and super easy to walk in. Wore it for Paris pictures and more casually with a cropped black sweater. Looks great from the backside-- hugs curves and feels sexy and very tasteful at same time! Assymetric panels makes photo option opportunities galore--- black floral on one side and light floral on other. Runs quite small I wore an 8 bit usually wear a 2-4.

Beautifully made, much prettier in person, softest fabric, gorgeous fit and truly feminine.

Bit tight of a fit, but flows beautifully, comfortable, wore to the opera it was perfect.

Beautiful but small

It fit everywhere except for my chest. I would have love to wear but big busted girls be aware.

This runs very small... european sizing is deceiving

First of all, the dress is beautiful. The fabric is first class. But, and this is a big one, the sizing is extremely small. I am typically a 2 US, so given that it was Euro sizing, I upped it to the size 4 US. I couldn't zip it up. I have replaced it with the next size up, which will be a 6 US, which is a size I have never ordered. But I am hopeful this will do the trick.

Unique dress and beautiful, soft fabric.

I wore this dress twice. Once for dinner out, and the second for my birthday celebration, and received many compliments each time. I initially ordered the *10R (6US), but it was too tight for my wider waist and broad back (I am pretty much a ruler, with slender hips), and so I replaced with the 12R (8US) which fit beautifully. I loved how the bottom flowed out as I walked, and it was super comfortable throughout the evening, allowing freedom of movement in every way. Definitely recommend if you want something feminine, yet a little different. (*NOTE: I was 139lbs at the time of reviewing this dress, but have since lost weight.)

Tried to get wear this, a 14R didn't fit.

Slim fitting. Couldn't zip it up. Normally wear a 12. Somehow missed that this was british sizing, glad that RTR made that clearer in the size selection drop down.

It was the first bar mitzvah I've been to since the 80's!

This dress fit perfectly. It's hard to see in the photo I'm posting, but it's really form-fitting in a very flattering way. It doesn't look as old-ladyish in person as it does in the photo (that's from my husband!). It was really comfortable too.

Beautiful dress

I LOVED this dress. The fabric is beautiful and soft, it is really flattering, and looks so much better in person than you would think from the photo. However, I took out a star because it is extremely tight at the waist - so might not be ideal for a dinner date.
