great for tall girls. I am 5'11 and the size 2 seemed on the longer side. Otherwise, beautiful dress, great color, sexy, and comfortable

Beautiful dress; awkward fit

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I ended up not wearing the dress because it was too big on top and tight around the hips. I agree with the earlier review that it takes a tall woman to pull this off. I'm 5'6" and it was unflattering from the waist up -- there's just a little too much material. The dress would also work for a fuller busted woman.

Double Take - great dress

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is beautiful. I got rave reviews all night at a friend's wedding. I do not recommend this dress unless you are 5'7" or taller. It is best for a long waisted woman - the top has too much fabric if you are short-waisted. (My measurement from the bone at the base of the neck to true waist is 16 1/2") A size 6 was almost too long waisted for me, but overall fit great. I ordered the size 8 as backup - you would need to be at least 5'9" and have neck to waist measurement of 17 1/2"+ or be large breasted to wear the size 8. The model in the picture is 5'10" - note how much drape there is at the waist of the dress. If you are 5'2, or very short waisted, you will not be happy with this dress. My measurements are 33-28-37. The skirt of the dress fit amazingly. It hugs the waist and hips just as pictured. I loved that it came right to the knee - so easy to sit in, walk in, dance in. worked well with a strapless bra and bronze pumps. I am ordering the dress again for another event. Love it! Though I may try a 4 as backup size this time. The colors are true to the picture, rich, vibrant and lovely. The fabric is a nice weight knit, drapes well and doesn't wrinkle.
Just me

Awesome colors and style

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I am 5'10", 140 pounds, 36C. The colors were beautiful and the style was superb. But unfortunatley it fit poorly overall. The size 8 was too large and the size 6 was too large on the bottom (the top fit fine.) You need to be tall to wear this dress since it hit me at my knees. This was my first rental with RTR and even though it was an unsuccessful rental due to size, I look forward to my next rental which is this weekend. It is such an easy process and communication is thorough and flawless.

Stood out in a roomful of LBDs

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size

I wore this dress to a reunion and it was perfect. The color is an orangey coral with dark bronze trim. The attached cami was the same dark bronze checked design. The cami straps are adjustable which provided great coverage for the slightly conservative event. This is a great dress for ladies with a large bust. I am 34dd, 30 in waist, 40 in hips and the size 10 fit beautifully and comfortably.
