I felt fabulous and I was completely comfortable.
The dress is somewhat stretchy but yet fitted. No need for a necklace, as the neckline is stunning. The length was perfect with the heels I wore. I got compliments from darn near everyone in the room. I could wear this dress everyday of my life!

LOVED dress but is very long with no petite sizes available
I loved the dress and received many compliments all night! It's so long though. I'm 5'4, had to wear (buy) 5in heels and it was still a bit long. I normally don't go higher than 3 inches so 5in was a bit much for me. So I would suggest this for 5'5 or taller. I wish it came in a petite. It was form fitting yet stretchy. I wore with a regular black bra. Forgot to take off my Apple Watch so don't forget to add a cuff and lose the watch/Fitbit!

My favorite RTR!
I rented this for a formal summer wedding in downtown LA. The lace and cut made the heat bearable. I ordered the medium and large, they both fit about the same but wore the large only to be safe and went without the spanx. Only down side was the the regular was a touch short (I'm 5'6, wore 3 in heels). I think this is a great dress for any body type. It was so comfortable, I almost forgot I was dressed in formal wear.

Comfortable elegance!
Fit is true to size. I have an athletic build and typically wear a size 6. The size MR fit like a glove. I am 5'3" and wore 4 inch heals and the length was perfect. Wore to a black tie wedding and got so many compliments. Not overly sexy despite the sheer areas. It is a gorgeous and super comfortable with stretchy material. You won't be disappointed in this rental!

It was timeless and the fit is perfect. It has a little gift that allows every body type to look amazing. It flatters & covers up the perfect areas. I got compliments all night!

Stretchy
Liked the dress for it's comfort. It's body hugging but very stretchy. Lace is also very soft, not scratchy lace. Had planned to wear for Great Gatsby party. Probably not as formal as you may think. Ended up wearing the other dress because though it's black and stretchy, it still too revealing with my belly showing at my age.

Do not pass on this dress
This gown is absolutely stunning. After not loving another dress I received for a friend's black tie wedding, I went to the RTR store in NYC to check out some other options. I picked up the Black Dixie lace gown on a whim, and actually almost put it away without trying it on. Thankfully, one of the great stylists forced me to go back and get into it so he could see how it looked. Not only is this dress a knockout, it's so, SO comfortable. And not just "comfortable-for-a-formal-dress," like "feels-like-you're-wearing-pajamas-in-public" comfortable. The fabric is the perfect amount of sturdy without being heavy so it holds everything in without cutting off your air or restricting your movement. I was complimented on this dress all night by people I both knew and didn't know. Long story short: I would HIGHLY recommend this gown to anyone who wants to stun at their event but not have to think about it!

Was it long enough for 3' heels?

This dress was gorgeous!! I wore it to a Gala and received so many compliments on the gown.
Runs true to size. I'm 5'5" and typically wear a 10-12. I did end up wearing the large/long, as I felt the regular length was too short with a pair of 3" stilettos. I would absolutely rent this dress again. Fit like a glove.

Versatile Chic!
Super loved this dress! It was a spandex lace -- there was only one button at the top of the back of the high neck collar. Other than that--it's an over-the-head into and out-of dress. I found that I could wear a regular black bra underneath and it didn't show (important for support of my larger cup size!). I dressed it down with cowboy boots and wore it dancing. Loved it!

Perfect to show curves!!
I received compliments all night! Fit true to size and wore with 4 inch heals and the length was perfect and just off the ground. So comfortable and its a very fitted fit. Perfect for girls with a bust and butt, shows all the curves in all the right places. As far as a bra, you can go with or without. I did a regular black bra and it looked great! I might rent again!

COMFY & GORGEOUS
it fit me so well, and it was ridiculously comfortable. the only thing is that i'm 5'9" and they don't have a long size, so i had to wear shorter heels than usual, but i mean i'm honestly used to that by now! i got so many compliments and i felt so confident the entire night in this gown. beware though that when you sit or go up and down stairs, skinny heels can get caught in the lace, which is what happened to me, but no big deal just had to unhook it a few times. overall, rent this dress if you want to feel comfy and look as fierce as morticia addams!

This dress was as if it were tailor made for me. It was excellent quality, most comfortable, classic, yet sexy. It was perfect and for my first RTR experience, it exceeded my expectations.

Fabulous Dress!
Wore this to my brother's wedding. So many compliments, people stopped me on the street to ask where I bought this. It's super comfortable too. I wore the medium but could have worn the small too. Rent this dress!

Hi Julie! I'm wanting to rent this dress and very similar to your measurements but smaller chest (A/B) Do you think the Small L would be the best back up size to order? Thanks!

Amazing fit!
Super stretchy, classic and sexy dress! I received compliments all night long! Super comfy and classic. I order the L- regular length and the L- long length and I liked how the longer length one skimmed the floor perfectly with the 3in heels I wore. (I'm 5'6") The only thing was the the button closure on the back was missing and I didn't notice until I had the dress on and my hair was done. So I MacGyver'ed it with the necklace I wore and it worked out great! Love this dress!!

City wedding
Wore this dress to a wedding in NYC. Got tons of complements. The material is super stretchy and comfortable. I usually do medium but the small complemented my curves very well so I decided to go with that one. It was a great dress definitely recommended.

Most comfortable dress
This dress was elegant and very flattering, but also unbelievably comfortable! It is very stretchy and I think it'd work on most body types. I wore a small long, am 5'8" and wore it with 3" heels and it just grazed the floor. You could probably get away with heels even slightly taller. I definitely recommend this dress.

The most comfortable dress I've ever worn!
I am 5' 2" and weigh 130 lbs and normally wear a size 2 or 4. I ordered the Small and Medium, and ended up wearing the Medium. I was worried about length but the dress was the perfect length with heels! This is my 5th or 6th rental and my absolute favorite! I would totally rent this again.

Great comfortable dress
Awesome dress. The xsm was longer than the small so that why I wore the smaller size. Otherwise, there wasn't much of a different. There were a few snags when received. Super comfy. Stretchy and forgiving. I wore a 3 inch heal. Love this dress and would really recommend it to anyone of any size who wants to be comfortable at events! :)

A classy showstopper
Dress fit great. I wore an XSL- so I would say overall the dress runs big because I'm usually not an XS. The length was great with 2-inch heels so if you're around 5'6 and wearing 2 inch or higher, I'd stick with the L(ong)- but otherwise a regular is fine. The dress photographs similar to how it wears, which is always nice. Overall great dress and lots of compliments !
