Greek Goddess, lots of compliments! I wore this the day after getting married to brunch.
So comfortable, loved the fabric thickness. The overall shape was very flattering with the twist of fabric in the middle. Perfect length, I wore flat sandals and the dress wasn't touching the ground and wasn't too short. Only negative was the coloring was closer to a grey vs. a crisp white, which I didn't expect but it still looked great and everyone loved it!

Black tie dinner followed by a concert.
It fit beautifully and as a bonus was very comfortable. I'm 5'4, 165 lbs, and this was incredibly flattering. I haven't worn white since my wedding and i got compliments all night. I wore it with a silver scrappy sandal.

Simple yet elegant
I was a little worried when I tried this dress on that it was too conservative and a little plain but once I got ready for my event it was just what I was going for. Sexy but classic. I got so many compliments on it and no one else had a dress like it. It was so comfortable and fit in all the right places. I would definitely recommend a size smaller for your backup then your usual size.

Wonderful gown
I wore 3 inch heels and the hem was slightly off of the floor. It was comfortable and fit Perfectly all around. The event I attended required all white gowns, but I didn't see another gown like mine all night. I had no worries with this dress at all.

Best compliment of the night: " A Goddess out of a fairy tale."
I wore this to the annual 2016 Minnesota Ballet Black and White Gala and the fit was great. I am 5'3" and ordered the 8P and 6R. The 6R was a few inches too long but the 8P allowed for a little peek of the silver shoes I wore along with the gown. Definitely a stand-out when most ladies opted for black gowns. The gather in the middle hides any tummy flaws and the chest area has plenty of room for bigger-chested girls.

It was fun to collaborate with other wedding vendors.
It fit great. The only con is that the beading on the belt of the dress what really frayed.

The dress is really beautiful.
The dress fitted like a glove. It is on a short side, so I ended up wearing flats with it.

Wonderful!!
I wore this to a black tie gala. The fit and length felt true to size. Received many compliments. It was really nice to stand out in white when most ladies were in black.

Such a unique and quality dress! I felt beautiful in it. Definitely recommend.
It was a smidgen long, so my shoes were hidden in photos. The fabric is also pretty thick, which I had no problem with, but that's just a side note that kind of surprised me!

TOTAL STUNNER - got compliments all night and felt like a goddess!!
LOVED this dress. I wore it for a holiday gala and could not have been happier with how it turned out. Got a ton of compliments and was really happy because everyone else opted for dark dresses + spray tans whereas I felt like this white gown really stood out -- and made me look tan! YAY! Also I have a sizable behind and was worried about the 6 fitting (I usually wear an 8) but the 6 fit so well! It was comfortable, easy to move in and perfect. HIGHLY RECOMMEND especially if you're a brunette :)

Great bridemaid's dress. It was perfect for a Newport wedding.
It fit like it was made for my daughter. The length was perfect with 4 inch heels.

I was invited to a Black Tie Event by a friend who needed a date last minute
I'm quite short (5'0"), so the dress dragged a bit.

Memorable rehearsal dinner dress
I wore this dress for my rehearsal dinner. It wasn't the dress I originally chose, but when there was issues with shipping RTR sent this one in place of my original selection. On top of all my wedding stress, I was nervous. But this dress fit like a dream and I was pleasantly surprised how flattering it was to accent my figure. People who weren't at the dinner were asking about it the next day and wanted to see pictures. It creates a lot of buzz. Everyone was impressed. I think I ended up liking this one better than I would have my original selection. It was so elegant and unexpected. I would recommend it.

Beautiful, unique gown!
I did not end up wearing this dress, but it was a beautiful choice. It did run a bit on the small size and the zipper was difficult, but it was very pretty. The detail was amazing! The length was perfect without too high of a heel. Very flattering. Would rent again!

Wore to a work event with a Hollywood theme.
Good coverage. Beautiful fabric. Bead work is gorgeous and just the right amount.

Loved The Beading Detail!
The beading detail on this dress is great and overall the dress was really comfortable. It does run large with much material in the bust area. I would recommend going with your true size and sizing down if you are smaller on top! The material draped really nicely and can be worn with a standard or strapless bra.
