Not too short for shorter person!
I wore this dress to a rehearsal dinner and found it to be the perfect length for my 5'2 frame. The sleeves were a little tight at first but gave a little--I also have larger arms in my opinion. The dress felt a little cheap to me, but was beautiful/fun on. I did wear Spanx as it clings rather tight in the back and you may want to "smooth things out." I would rent this again.

Unfortunate accident
Unfortunately, I was unable to wear this dress as it had not been cleaned before it was sent out. I am certain this is a fluke accident and customer service was absolutely wonderful about it! The dress is very pretty though and it's a nice material. I wish I had been able to wear it. Oh well, maybe another time!

Everyone thought it looked great
It fit me a little above the knee because I'm short but every where else it fit fine. The sleeves were exactly the right size and even the mid-section didn't feel too big. It did smell a little bit funny at first, though.. But nothing perfume couldn't hide.

Nice style, made me feel good after baby!
I loved the style of the dress, and it was forgiving as I had just had a baby six months ago and was still a little "bumpy". I felt like I looked good. My only complaint was that I was expecting the fabric to be a bit lighter. It was warmer out and I felt a little uncomfortable at first because of it, but that was probably in the description and I just missed it so no worries. Overall, a great dress!

My husband's law school banquet. Very special night in a very comfortable dress!
I loved the material - not too thick but not too thin. The fit was perfect and helped to even add some curves. Very comfortable! The arm length is a tad long but not where the sleeves are scrunched. The liner/hem on mine was a bit worn and I did have to pin it. I had a hard time parting with this dress and would absolutely order this dress for another occasion!

Great dress!
I really liked this dress and would recommend it. It was comfortable and very cute. Unfortunately, I wore my normal size because the size down wasn't available. I think the lower size might have fit a little better. Great dress still, though!

Weird hem, but great silhouette.
Usually wear an 8, but it was way too big in the hips so I was happy I ordered down a size for the backup. Overall the dress looked great and was perfect for the wedding as a classic LBD option. Danced all night long in it - arms usually are tight on me, but it was just fine! The only problem was the 6 had a weird mesh that looked like it was hand sewn along the inside of the bottom of the dress... The stitching was all uneven and definitely didn't seem original to the dress, especially because the size 8 didn't have it.

I was going to wear this to a summer wedding - it was way too hot though and ended up not wearing it
This dress was heavy and runs big. I'm usually a 10 and the 8 was too big. The dress itself is gorgeous and the cut falls perfectly so you can wear a normal bra. However, the material was so thick that I would only recommend for a winter event.

Classic and comfortable!
I love this dress! I ordered a 10 which fit well but the bust was somewhat tight on me (I actually am a 34DDD) and I preferred the extra room in the 12 even though it was a little less fitted that in the waist. The dress is classic, a great length, flattering fit, extremely comfortable to wear and the neckline is very unique. I wish I owned it!

This dress is comfy and super classy at the same time.
The material was comfy and design was excellent. However, it runs large, so it was too big on me. I should have ordered a size down.

The dress was gorgeous, however I didn't even end up wearing it.
The dress was far too long on my small frame and it was extremely unflattering. The material is heavy and wasn't good for spring even though my event took place at night. I was so sad, because the dress had such rave reviews! But it was just awful on me, I felt like I was being swallowed by the dress. Between the long sleeves and the too long hemline I was just disappointed overall.

Great dress! I was super comfortable but still felt sexy.
Fits true to size and looks great on - not too short for tall girls, either. Hard to wear with a bra obviously, but can still look great with strapless. Wish it was a little more fitted through the chest and waist, but that's just a preference. Still looked and felt great! Note - it's definitely a thicker fabric than I realized, so more of a fall/winter dress!

Very flattering neckline, easy to wear all night long!
The dress material was a little bit thicker than I expected, and the dress was very modest which was what I was looking for for my event. It was extremely comfortable though, and you can wear a regular bra with it (the neckline wasn't a challenge with normal bra straps). Perfect to wear with big statement earrings!

Compliments all night! I wore it to a Casino Royale company party in February.
This dress is comfortable and has a bit of stretch to the material. It's a bit snug in the chest so if you may want to size up but for me (B cup) the 10 worked fine. The bottom of the dress has a plastic mesh that helps with the shape however it was a bit difficult to get out some of the puckered bits and the lining would show longer at times. If I'd taken time to iron the bottom it would have been a non-issue. I wish this dress was mine!

pretty dress, was too big
I rented this for a February wedding so I wanted something with sleeves. The size 8, which was my main size, was unable to ship at the last minute. They sent me a back-up and the size 10 in this dress. I really liked the dress but the 10 was just a tad big. The back-up fit amazingly so I went with that one. I would have had a tough decision if the 8 had sent because the dress was very nice. It was warm and I loved the neckline.

The dress fit perfectly. I am tall, so the arms were a little on the short end. However, the zippers on the sleeves were a nice touch! Overall the fit was perfect.

Love this dress- wore it for valentines day, and it was so incredibly flattering! I could have definitely gone down one more size, but it was nice and flowy, didn't hug the middle at all and the neckline was so different and fun

I wore this to a winter formal dance. I got compliments all night! Everyone loved it.
This dress is perfect! The material is very comfortable and the bottom isn't too poofy. The only thing Ii was worried about was the hem, because there is a little piece of fabric underneath that can show at the bottom, but it is nothing a little fashion tape can't fix (and there was a sample of fashion tape in the box!). I am usually a 6/8, and ended up ordering both and wearing the 6. The sleeve length is perfect for someone tall, and the length of the dress is perfect.

The hemline was a little wonky but it was a dark event so it wasn't too noticeable. I wear a 34G bra and this still fit great up top.

I wore this dress for a birthday dinner and it was beautiful!
Because of the material it is made out of, it was a little tight on my chest but not enough that would make me go up a size. The dress is very classy. With it's unique neckline I needed little accessories. Loved the long sleeves, great for winter months.

Flattering style
Great fit and style for a winter wedding! Wore it with the earrings modeled in the picture on RTR and tights. Very comfortable and a classic LBD. Only downside was the hem was messed up due to over dry cleaning. It ironed flat so I was able to wear it. Overall I liked it but was just disappointed for the condition.

Great neckline & shape!
The neckline made the dress awesome, very flattering. The shape was flattering too. I would definitely suggest a belt if you're a shorty like me though because the dress can kind of swallow you without it. It was pretty long but I wanted a longer style since it was a work party anyway!

Perfect Little Black Dress
I wore if for my Birthday dinner in Niagara Falls. It was thick so it kept me warm! It was the perfect length! Could have worn it without tights if it wasn't so cold out. They didn't have the 4 for me to rent, it was damaged. I think the 4 would have fit better but the 6 worked for the night!

Really comfortable dress for a fall wedding
Wore this to a wedding where it ended up being quite cold, but this dress was perfect. Added fun shoes and earrings. Everyone commented on the cool cut-out neckline. I was 3 months pregnant and not ready to tell everyone, but you couldn't tell at all in this dress. Fitted but with just enough room and flair from the hips and waistline, plus the fabric is thick and smoothing.

This was a great dress for a wedding on the foggy coast of northern california!
The fit was great, I'm a bit smaller on top, and since the skirt flares out, i was able to go with a size 4. The material is nice and thick, and the dress is super flattering. My only problem was that the tiny straps used for the hanger kept peeking out from the shoulders... If I owned the dress I would have just cut them off, but instead i just had to tuck them back in every once in a while. Other than that, loved it!

Clever, Clever Dress
The neckline really sets this dress apart. It is so cleverly made with zippered sleeves and the shape of the skirt. I originally ordered the larger size as Nanette Lepore usually runs small, but this dress was much larger. Rtr was wonderful when I called and sent me the smaller size immediately! It was perfect!
