Ok dress. Ran a bit large.
I am a true small and when I received this dress it seemed big. I had to pull the elastic band on the waist much tighter to make it appear like I had a waist. I obviously wore it so I was happy with it once I "altered" it a bit.

Very Flattering Dress!
I rented this as the back up dress for an evening wedding and when my first choice was way too short, this one was absolutely perfect. So comfy, very elegant, but probably not for petite girls because it is long, even with heels (I'm 5'11" and I wore 3" heels that poked out the bottom). I see a few reviews here about it not draping properly for some—it was an interesting design, but if you have the belt in properly, this shouldn't be an issue. I did have to play with it a little to get it right. Received a TON of compliments on this one!

terrible! super large!
this dress ran waaay too large for me. I got the smallest size avail and it looked like I was wearing a trash bag that draped in all the wrong places. the fabric was super cheap and did not look right. it was a bit confusing to put on because you don't know what goes where until you take about 10 minutes figuring it out. I was mortified with only 2 days left until my event. But rtr's amazing customer service was awesome and they sent me two other different styles in my size. So that I was super thankful for.

Awesome!
Awesome fit, I'm 5'3 and the dress was the perfect length with 4 inch heels. The dress drapes beautifully, although the back doesn't go as far down as I'd hoped. Overall, a great purchase.

I wish I could review this but they sent me another dress. i had to guess on sixizng
they sent me a dress with sequins! I got a refund but it kind of ruined the occasion because it was a school event and no sequins allowed

RTR was awesome! Everything came on time and it was amazing! I absolutely reccomend!
I am 5"6 and about 120 ibs. So typically a size 3 or 5. I absolutely loved this dress! it was so soft and lightweight and it complimented my body perfectly! It was a little long on me (I wore them with 1 inch heels so that might have been a contributing factor) but it was nothing a little fashion tape couldn't fix. Also, it's really low cut in the front so definitely recommend taping that up too. You will need a backless adhesive bra because it has no cups or any support. The dress was also see through so I recommend wearing a slip. It was an amazing beautiful dress and it absolutely stood out.

Fit was true to size, even slightly smaller than expected. Material is thin (be prepared!) but drapes nicely.

I wore this dress to prom
The dress (even with regular) was pretty long (I wore a MR). The fabric was pretty flimsy, see-through, and static-y. Wasn't my favorite, but did what it had to do. Also, I had to safety pin the cleavage area so that it wouldn't just fly open.

This dress was amazing and so comfortable! Everyone complimented how elegant and beautiful it looked
I am 5'3", so the dress length was a perfect length with 4" heels. However, it was a bit wide on me but couldn't really tell because of the wrap and belt.

Looked amazing and was comfortable all night!
I wore this to a black tie optional wedding and I received so many compliments all night long! The dress is a bit low cut (for someone who doesn't wear low cut tops/dresses) and I did have to pin it in the back so my bra wouldn't show, but overall this dress is awesome. I'm a tall girl who loves wearing heels so the SL worked out. I wish it would have touched the floor, but I ended up in flip-flops that they provided so it ended up working out! Another girl who attended the wedding used RTR, too!

RTR is so easy to use!
This fit of this dress runs a bit big, so go down a size. I'm normally a 6 or M but small fir perfectly. This dress is SO comfortable! I couldn't beleive how air light this fabric was and how easy it was to move around, yet it looked so elegant on. I want to OWN this dress! Perfect for many body types!

I felt like I was on the Red Carpet
I loved the fit- very flattering! I wish the SL would have been available but I made it work- it was a bit short with my 3.5" heels and a lot of pinning was needed. It was super light and comfy however. I wore it to Miss America and felt like I stood out without the sequins that everyone else had- which I loved! Careful- don't put it on backwards...!

Loved. Loved. it. Just perfect.
Absolutely loved this dress. Others were perhaps 'outshining' my dress with gold sequins and pop colors but the way this dress falls and the intricate way it is draped was enough for me to love my dress more. It's sexy but not slutty and EXTREMELY comfortable. Can't remember what size I wore unfortunately. It was either the XSR size or the SR size.

Oscar party? Great. Oscar party. Done.
I didn't really think I could even wear a long dress, as I am short, have short and muscled legs, and what I like to think of as rather substantial birthing hips. But I really pulled this one off. This was, like, two years ago now? And one super stylish guest/friend at the Oscar party I hosted and wore this to, said I looked "stunning." "STUNNING"! Me! Can you believe it?! It's great that they have length options, too. Also, they didn't have another size of the dress I wanted or something and sent me two options as backups because RTR is awesome.

Contemporary and modern
Loved the design of this dress. It drapes the body nicely like a Greek goddess. These are my only issues: 1) Although it looks elegant and dressy, the fabric is not the heavier jersey that I thought it would be. Instead, it feels like a tissue-weight cotton t-shirt. 2) It is extremely thin and lightweight which makes it VERY sheer. You need a full body suit/slip with a built in bra to not see the lines or skin color if you are fair. 3) The belted sides looked bronze to me so I ordered gold accessories and bought a metallic gold shoe. They actually match better with a grey tone or gunmetal. 4) I am definitely not a size small but I think I could have fit in one due to the draping and forgiving nature of the design.

Sexy and comfortable
I rented this as a back-up for a wedding and didn't end up wearing it. While it was a bit tricky to put on and get the draping just right, once I did, it was very cute and sexy. There was a lot of draping on the behind area that was overall flattering/attention-grabbing, without being over the top or making the behind look large. The material is definitely very casual, although it has a shimmer, and pretty thin - be prepared to wear subtle nude underwear. Also, I rented in a S and an XS may have been a bit better - not sure though.

wearing a great dress on a red carpet!
This dress was comfortable and gave me shape without feeling too tight. It did run a bit long, but that was fine because I had on high heels! I would definitely recommend this dress.

I got tons of compliments on this dress!
I rented this dress for the Grammy's. The fit was great, the fabric photographed really well, and it was super comfortable. Also, it may not seem like it in the pictures, but you can totally wear a bra with it (it's not as low in the back as it looks in the image). No fashion tape needed.

You look absolutely gorgeous! We're exactly the same size, so I was curious if you felt the waist fit well, or if there was room to spare. Seriously considering this dress!

Nice Dress
I ordered this is as my primary dress (MR), with my backup being the long version (ML), however, RTR contacted me to let me know the ML was unavailable and so they kindly send me another dress I wanted as my backup. I am 5'5 and a pretty standard size 6, however, in 4 inch heels this dress was way too short so I probably needed the backup size. Luckily, the other dress they sent (Badgley Mischka Party All Night) fit perfectly and was long enough (6R) so I went with that one. Nice dress overall but surprised it wasn't long enough. Fit otherwise though, through the bust and whatnot. On a final note, I ordered this for a formal event and although it is a beautiful dress I probably would have worn it to a more casual event once I saw it on as it is not as glam as I hoped.

No one had anything negative to say about this dress! I felt so glamourous in it
I loved this dress! I got so many compliments throughout the night. It was comfortable, easy to move around in, especially since there was a lot of sitting, standing, and dancing. The loose fabric was flattering, and I didn't have to fuss with it the whole night. I would definitely recommend this dress!
ElysaMarch 5, 2012
hey! were basically the exact same size, which is awesome, so i was wondering if you got the long length? i wasnt planning on wearing heels, for fear of being taller than my date O.o if you could let me know, it would be the best!
LaurenJuly 23, 2012
Do you mind sharing what size you bought and heel height? I'm 5'10 too so it would be very helpful!
RTRJuly 24, 2012
Hi ladies, Erin wore a size ML. We recommend the long length to wear with flats or a small heel if you're a similar height.

The whole dress was so light, and so low cut it felt like I was topless! Which was great.
I couldn't figure out how to make it look like the picture, so it was really low, but i liked it better. You should be handy with fashion tape though, and do too much vigorous moving around or you may flash people.

LOVED the dress! and all my friends liked it too! I received a lot of complement on it! I ordered the sL and mL size. The small size, although it fitted properly, was too short. The medium size was much longer and I was able to wear 3 inch shoes. I did make some arrangements of my own on the mL dress because it was a little too big on the waist. Love the subtle shimmer on the dress, it simple yet makes a statement. Over all, a great dress!

This looks killer in the picture, but not the best on the body. The material is thin (it comes with a lining), but I can imagine it not looking good on several people. I didn't wear it because it takes a lot of 'fussing with' to get it to look good and I was worried that I'd have to adjust it all night long. It is long though which is great for tall women, but the fabric really should be more luxurious.

Loved the dress! I got so many compliment from the gents and the ladies! It didn't look like much at first but once I put it on, it was just stunning. Fabric is very shimmery so it gives a little edge to the regular black dress. Also I'm pretty curvacious and the dress shows it all off without looking too scandalous. The back doesn't hang as low as pictured so I was able to wear a regular VS bra! Only con: the dress is very long. I'm 5'5 and was wearing very high heels but the dress was still dragging to the floor a bit. All in all it's a beautiful dress that accentuate the right curves

This dress is really long - I wore a 5" heel and it still almost touched the ground, so it's not for petite girls. Also, it is not as fitted as it looks in the picture - it was too loose and drapey. It also does not dip so low in the back, so you can wear a regular bra with this.
