Long for us shorties
This was a pretty dress but simply didn't work on my body. It was too long and too hard to hide a bra (I'm a 32 DD so going without isn't an option). Nice if you are tall and waifish and love purple.

Couldn't keep the girls in
Really pretty dress. Had a hard time with the top. Wore those self stick bra cups under the dress and uses double sided fashion tape to hold things in place, but the girls kept wanting to roam. Had to adjust the dress a lot. I bought the dress so I'll see if I can have it altered to fit better on top. The overall style and color and flow of the dress is beautiful.

Love this dress!
This dress fit perfectly! I am 5'9" and wore 3" heels and it touched the floor. The color is amazing-perfect for our Mardi Gras ball! You will need tape and pasties! So glad I bought this dress!

Great dress!
This was a last minute back up dress. My original dress (also from RTR) was too short to wear. I called RTR and they shipped this dress overnight for me. I could not have been happier with the result. Thank you RTR!

The dress fit amazing and the color was very beautiful. Highly recommend renting it.
Beautiful dress. Low cut so make sure you have a good bra or double-sided tape.

Showstopper!
I ended up wearing this dress as a last minute in-store find, after not liking anything I ordered. I did not expect this dress to fit as well as it did. Hugs every curve in a flattering light, and falls straight from the hip. It's a fantastic color -something a little different than your average LBD. The V neckline is DEFINITELY deeper than what the model shows -highly recommend fashion tape, but the material adheres well, and stayed in place ala JLo! I wore 3" black patent leather heels, that were the perfect height for the length. If you want something sassy & unique, this is your dress!

Compliments all night long!
I didn't expect to love this dress as much as I did. The gorgeous color and plunging neckline certainly made me stand out! The right undergarmets are a must, though - I wore undetectable thongs and silicone nipple covers, and if I had had fashion tape, I probably would have used it to make sure the dress stayed where I wanted on my chest. I didn't have any "wardrobe malfunctions", but I kept an eye on the girls all night just to make sure. The long length was a bit too long for me. With 4" heels, I still had to tape up about 2" of the hem. I felt like a supermodel and would definitely wear this dress again!

Didn't wear this. Although the pics look great, this dress is night gown thin.

fun tropical themed party (Fantasy Island theme)
this is a great dress. i received lots of compliments on the dress and phoenix necklace (also RTR). the dress is stretchy, so it hugs all your curves. it is VERY low cut in the front! you cannot wear a bra, you will need the sticky nipple covers. the material is also pretty thin, so check for undergarment lines (spanx). i wore an 8R, I'm 130 #, 5'6", 36D. this dress would be great for mardi gras balls as well. it was very comfortable for dancing. I wore 4" heels and it was perfect.

Totally fit into a Bond motif for the evening, Casino Royale style
Highly recommend fashion tape at the v-neck, whether or not you wear a bra/pasties. Elegant and classy, A-line skirt is open enough to walk comfortably and confidently.

Flattering, around the stomach.
This was a replacement dress sent to me, which I didn't end up wearing. The ruching at the waist is very flattering. I would have needed a long, since the regular was an inch off the ground even in bare feet. The plunge on the neckline is VERY deep! I tried it on with a strapless bra and the plunge ended below the bottom of the bra. The back of the dress was also below the bottom of the bra. This could be a really pretty dress, but if you need some support or to wear some type of bra, this isn't for you. You also should be a little daring to wear this. Bottom line flattering dress, just low cut for me!

Felt gorgeous!
This gown fit great! I wore 4 inch heels and the gown skimmed the floor in the back while showing my shoes in front. It is low cut so difficult to wear a bra. I wore a Nu Bra to provide coverage but I could have used the tape if I had some. If you are small chested you need good posture to prevent showing too much. The gown's tailoring provides great tummy coverage and I added a Spanx for control. Overall I loved the cut, color and fit of this dress!

So so
This was my first choice, but unfortunately it didn't work out. The 6 overwhelmed my torso, was too big, and didnt fall in the right places. The 4 fit better but the jersey stretch slinky material was not flattering from the back or the side. The V fell about 3 inches below my bust which was a little too much for me. The two straps in the back were too long on both of the sizes and I wish that I could have tightened the halter to pull it up a bit. With the right fit, could have been really pretty. I'm 5'4" and with 3ish inch heels it hit right at the floor, maybe even a tad on the short side, so if you're taller and want to do heels do the long.

Great color!
So comfy and gathers nicely at the waist to pull you in. I recommend wearing sticky bra or covers bc the fabric is kinda flimsy. GORG color!!! I am in between a 4 and a 6 and I could have sized down with the 6.

Never got complimented so much!
Forgiving fit for large bust. Spanx are good to smooth out because the dress is unlined, super cute and very sexy!

Very low neckline; no support.
This was my first choice dress but I didn't end up wearing it. I was a bit worried about the fabric as it is jersey, but it is a beautiful, shiny jersey that looks very formal and drapes beautifully. The dress is very slimming. The purple is the same color as on the model. The stretch also makes this dress very comfortable. I ordered the long since I wanted to wear 3" heels, but if I had worn the dress I would have needed to tape the hem about 2" (5'6" wearing 3" heels). The neckline is much lower than it looks on the model (it ended about 2" below my nipples). I am a 32D and still had plenty of room in the bust. However the dress offers absolutely no support or padding, and the combination of low neck and low back made wearing a bra impossible (this is why I opted for my backup dress). I would only recommend this dress if you are small-chested and not worried about bounce. You will also need some sort of nipple cover / pasty to prevent show-through since the dress has no padding. Overall this is a beautiful dress and it would be great on someone with a small chest who doesn't mind deep V necklines.
