Loved this dress!
I wore this dress to a formal wedding and received so many compliments. It was a bit stretchy which sucked in my stomach so I didn't have to watch what I ate at dinner! The top provided some support so I didn't need to wear a bra and it definitely fit true to size

This dress fit like a glove, and I received many compliments throughout the night
The dress is stretchy where it needs to be so you can move and sit comfortably. The long sleeves were not uncomfortable as I had expected.

A Night Out
The dress was gorgeous, the only con about the dress were the tight sleeves, other than that the dress fit perfectly.

The dress was beautiful but I ended up not wearing it.
The dress fit well, true to size. I was glad that the arms were snug as some other photos show the arms loose and I don't think it looks as nice on someone when the arms don't fit like they do on the model. I ordered two dresses and ended up wearing the other one only because I think this dress would be more flattering on a taller person. I am only 5'2 and the cut of the dress was made for a tall, slender person.

Elegant and Sexy, Perfect Dress!
This dress fit like a glove yet was also very forgiving of any imperfections due to the material. I still wore spanx underneath to smooth it all out but not necessary. I would have preferred to get a long as I wear 4 inch heels and am 5'7 but the regular worked fine. Also was perfect for putting on flats and dancing all night long! I got compliments all night and everyone wanted to know where I got it. It stood out amidst the regular wedding attire. It covered the whole body but the sheerness and tightness made it super sexy. If you need to be appropriate but elegant and sexy, this is your dress! It was a fall rainy wedding in NY and the long sleeves kept me warm but not overly so. It was the perfect dress and I would buy it!

I wish I could keep it! Perfect!!
This dress was absolutely perfect! I typically wear a 6/8 but those sizes were unavailable. I wore the 10 and it was roomy but very comfortable. I received countless complements on the dress! Only con would be that there was no eye hook and the zipper would fall down sometimes. I wish I could have kept this dress! You won't regret renting this one!

Fits like a glove!!
The back, bodice and sleeves of this dress are the true stunners. Bottom is a bit boring and a little bit short (had to wear 2.5 in heels in regular) so order long if you're my height and want to wear higher heels. The dress fit beautifully and the gold zipper up the back was sexy. Got tons of compliments. Top would be small for anyone with a larger chest.

I received compliments all night about how beautiful the dress and fit was. I loved it
The dress fit perfectly in all the right areas. Did notice that my zipper kept sliding down a few times. Not sure if I snapped the underlying button. Otherwise dress is perfect.

Gorgeous!
I didn't end up wearing this dress but would have loved to. I am a typical 6 and ordered the 6. However, it was a but snug around the waist and hips. I think it looked great and I would have worn it if another had not worked. Just order your normal size and a size up as backup. The regular length was perfect for 5'6 with 3 inch heels. Touched the floor and the train barely drug. It was so pretty!

Loved this dress so hard. Made me look bomb
Note: I wore black sleeves underneath this dress to cover some of the sheer sections on top. The dress seems to run a little small (it was some work to zip up), but the dress wasn't overly tight to the point that I couldn't breathe. Dress is very long and dragged on the floor whenever I took my heels off (I'm 5'3"), but fell just gorgeously when I had em on. At first glance, the dress doesn't seem ideal for dancing, but I was able to groove on the dance floor just fine! These are really just minor things. I felt and looked GREAT in the dress. DID not stop getting compliments on it all night long. Made my chest, waist, and butt look terrific. I'd definitely wear this again to another formal event. I would definitely wear a strapless bra and either a thong or no show panties at that time.

Great dress!
I tried on this dress at the Chicago store in this size about a month before the black tie wedding we were attending. It fit and looked great. I proceeded to lose about 7 pounds. This dress fit me well but an 8R would have fit better in the waist. The 8R was deactivated. No one else could tell the dress was a little big. Needless to say, I got lots of complements. We had a fabulous evening. I felt great! I highly recommend this dress. It was very comfortable. I could sit, move around and dance unrestricted.

Great dress for a jewish more conservative weeding. The sleeves allows you to show some skin ... and its also a tight, mermaid looking dress, very sexy! No need for bra.

Fit impeccably on waist and hips! Felt like an A-lister all night! Recieved TONS of compliments!
A little long, but with four-inch heels it's fine. The shoulders and sleeves aren't restricting and I was able to move my arms around comfortably. Overall, I am super pleased with this dress. Perfect for women with curvier hips and a smaller bust. Paired it with Kate Spade Opening Night Statement Earrings.

ENDLESS COMPLIMENTS!
I cannot express my love for this dress enough! Such a flattering fit. I naturally have a tiny waist and wider hips and it highlighted me in all the right ways. So classy, my only complaint was that the zipper in the 4R was different than the zipper in the 6L, and would slowly unzip itself throughout the night. A safety pin fixed it though, no worries. At 5'9, I definitely needed the long but I wore flats and the regular just hit my ankles. The long skimmed the ground but was not available in a 4. Strapless bra is recommended and no-show panties! LOVED this dress for prom, so so so many compliments. Thank you RTR, you've done it again!

Compliments on the dress! Definitely stood out!
I wore the 8 in this dress even though I usually wear a 6. I found the 6 tight across the chest while the 8 was a bit too roomy in the hips but it still worked for me. Enjoyed the dress and would rent again if needed!

I wore this to my husbands Air Force awards dinner. I received many compliments and felt glamourous!
The arms were not restrictive for me in this dress, I could lift my arms above my head easily. The waist was a little tight but that was to be expected. This dress fit like a glove showing off my curves (which my husband appreciated immensely!). It was a bit long but with 4 inch heels I managed not trip over myself. Overall it was a beautiful dress that made me feel beautiful and elegant!

I wore this to a college formal event and got so many complements!
I had originally ordered another dress, but since they didn't have it in my size, they sent me this one, along with another one for backup. When I tried this one one, it fit me perfectly like a glove so I had to wear it! It highlights all of your curves and it's different than most of the dresses that I've seen. It didn't seem to ride up or anything. It's a little hard to walk in (if you're wearing high heels, and due to the slight mermaid style towards the bottom), but manageable. I wore a strapless bra underneath and was good to go. The dress is long so you're gonna have to wear some sort of high heels with it (I wore my nude pumps and it still dragged a bit, but not too bad). First time renting with RTR and everything turned out amazing! I highly recommend this dress!

Beautiful, but did not wear to my event!
The gown arrived in 2 different sizes along with another selection I made (Mesh Around Gown) after my visit to a RTR showroom. I had been eyeing the Shoulder to Shoulder gown for awhile but it was not available for me to try on in my he showroom. After trying on the 2 gowns that were delivered, I quickly realized that the Shoulder to Shoulder was not flattering on me - it actually made my shoulders look droopy. But the other gown was perfect and that's the one I wore to the event. The best thing about RTR - options!

Red Carpet Dress
I like the thickness of the fabric, so it was perfect for the early morning event. Got a couple of compliments from guys, surprisingly. It's tight around hips and the zipper kept un-zipping.

Compliments all night, felt so glamorous in it!
Fit like a glove! Loved the silhouette it gave me. Only thing to think about is dress length. I'm just under 5'3" and wore 4 inch heels and it still dragged just a tad. I didn't mind because I thought it added drama, just had to hold up the front when walking. 5inch heels would have probably been better.

Elegant dress with a modern edge!
I found the dress to fit true to size. The sleeves were a bit tight but they had zippers at the wrist you could open up for more room. I loved the sheer shoulders which gave the dress a unique look. The dress was fitted all the way through and went slightly out at the bottom. I received tons of compliments all night!

I didn't have to stress about what I was going to wear and when I'd find time to buy one.
It fit like a glove! The only problem I had was that the zipper kept unzipping. It really wasn't that big of a deal, whoever would catch it would just zip it back up.

This dress was perfect for a downton Abby inspired party!
This dress is pretty true to size as other reviewers said it is a bit snug in the arms and don't expect to be able to lift your arms above your head once you put it on. It is however very elegant and I received compliments about it all night long. It did fit a little tighter in the bust so I was unable to wear a bra with it but it was not noticeable.

This dress was such a stunner! I felt the prettiest I have ever felt in my life.
This dress was the perfect blend of sexy and elegant. The barely there train to the dress really amped it up for the black tie event I attended. The nude backing behind the lace left something to wonder. I felt like a rock start. I felt like a princess. I felt amazing. And I think everyone could tell. I received so many compliments that evening. I wish I had an excuse to wear it again, but I am weird about repeats.. hence why RTR is the best service ever!!! Cannot wait to update this review with the pictures when the photographer makes them available to me. Thank you again RTR for a great experience!! Specs: I ordered both the 0 and the 2. I ordered another dress from this brand and wished I had gone smaller, but this dress I went up a size because of how tight it was around the hips and booty. It was a perfect fit for my body I am 38 26 32 and weigh around 120 give or take a few depending on the day. I am 5'2" and with 4.5 inch wedges, the dress kissed the floor in the front and trailed in the back as it should've. The best part of this dress was that I could wear very comfortable shoes that were not very fancy and made it from 4pm to 3 am without any foot pain.

My daughter got married, and I wanted a dress that didn't look MOB.
I am 5'6 3/4", I wear a size 6-8 dress, I had 2" heels, and this dress fit PERFECTLY! I am still getting phone calls, emails, texts, about the dress and where I got it. It was STUNNING. I also danced all night, and it was soooo comfortable. I was worried about the arms, but my "mom arms" fit in the sleeves just fine.

Received a lot of compliments throughout the night; a very classy dress.
Everything was perfect except for the waist line, was very tight according to the dress' size. It looked nice, but was very uncomfortable below the bust line.

Different textures made the dress feel extra elegant!
The dress is SUPER snug on the mid section and hips. I am not very curvy and the dress was snug on my hips. This worked for me but pear shapes may have an issue! I am 5 ft 2 in and the regular length was the perfect length. In the pic I am wearing 5 inch heels.
