This dress was SO PRETTY and really comfortable-- except for the fact that the top is HUGE.
The top is so stretched out that it was almost unwearable. I wore a size 10 to my last formal (that dress ran small, though, I think I'm about an 8) and this dress was a 6 and still too big. I definitely needed a 4, but even then I probably still would've had to use fashion tape. Luckily I didn't have an mishaps at my event, but it made me almost wish I got a different dress. Too bad, it really is gorgeous. I got a ton of compliments.

Loved this dress!!! Didn't want to give it back!!!
I got a 6 reg and a 4 reg and I'm usually a 6 short. I wore the 4 reg and it was super long and super loose! I should have gotten a 2 short or maybe even a 0!

Dress was gorgeous, just not the right fit!
Dress arrived and was beautiful in person. I generally wear a size 6 in Rebecca Taylor, however this dress runs extremely large in the bust. The length for me, even in heels was way too long. I had to wear my own dress that I thankfully brought as back up.

Beautiful and classy, felt like a princess! Great for any formal affair.
This dress runs 1-2 sizes big. I am normally a 4/6, but read the reviews and went for a 2 & 4. The 2 fit perfectly on my body however the bust was very loose. Perhaps others with a large bust had stretched it out, because the 4 was more fitted in the bust area. I wore the 2 and the fashion tape I bought helped keep it up all night long. Got tons of compliments all night! I think this dress should be flattering for any body type. Just make sure to go a size or 2 down!

Perfect amount of sparkle
Dress was comfortable, flowing, and gorgeous. It was perfect for a formal holiday party, I got tons of compliments. It definitely runs large...I'm usually a 6/8 and the 4 was still a little big. I recommend fashion tape, it was the only thing keeping the top of the dress up all night. I'm not very tall and the dress was long but I couldn't wear the tall heels I planned, I didn't like the look of the dress when it wasn't skimming the floor. I wound up wearing cowboy boots - you couldn't see them and much more comfortable for the night!

I got so many compliments!
I rented this dress for a New Year's Eve wedding. I felt gorgeous the whole night and got so many compliments! After reading the reviews I got dresses in size 2 and size 4. I normally am a size 4-6 so I'm glad I went with the smaller sizes. I'm 5 feet and wore 3 inch heels and found it was a little long even though it was the petite size. The dress was very lightweight and flowy. Overall I would definitely recommend this dress! This is the second dress I've rented from RTR and have not been disappointed!

The perfect prom dress!!
This was the perfect dress for my junior prom. I had so much fun dancing and twirling in it all night, it hugged me in all the right places and fit like a glove. The dress does run a bit large, so I went down in size, the regular length fit me perfectly with 3 inch heels. As far as what color your date should wear if you have one would be silver because of the silver sequin shoots throughout the dress, the dress is a navy color if you can't tell. All in all, it was the perfect dress for the perfect night!(:

I ordered this dress the day before my Mardi Gras ball. It was a hit and I felt so pretty
The dress ran a little big. Could have used more boning in too. I'm a 36D and went with smaller size dress and it was still a bit loose. 2 safety pins and I Was good to go. Will definitely be renting again!

Perfect for Military Ball!
It was a beautiful dress with just the right amount of sparkle!! It runs large and had a lot of stretch. I am a 36 DD and normally wear a 12 and the 10 fit me perfectly. The only problem I had was it was short. I had to wear flats even with the long size.

Gorgeous dress
This dress was gorgeous and I received compliments on it the entire night. However I'm so glad I took the time to read a bunch of the reviews. I'm usually a size 4 or 6 depending on the dress. But after reading reviews about the stretchy material in the back of the dress I ended up ordering a 2 and 4. Thank god I got the 2 because even that was almost a little big, and definitely long I'm about 5'2" but wore 4" heels and was still holding the dress up as I walked some times. Overall I loved the dress, felt so glamorous in it and would definitely wear it again!!!

6.5 months preggers and all dressed up!
I loved wearing this dress! Wore it to a black tie wedding when I was heading into my third trimester. Hard for me to speak to the sizing since I had a big baby belly but it was comfortable and fun. The skirt was nice and full and I appreciated having a petite size since I'm 5'2. Wore the 4P over the 6P because the 6 was really stretched out (like the elastic at the back was worn out) and the 4 was a little shorter. Could have worn either though.

Absolutely stunning
I ordered a 4P and 6P, since I'd read that this dress runs a bit large. The 4P ended up stretched out and even bigger at the bust than the 6P, so I wore the 6. Even then, the dress was a bit loose on top, but that was fixed with a little double sided tape. In choosing a dress for Prom, I was afraid of renting a dress because my shoulders and back are very broad (swimmer problems) but the top of this dress is elastic and stretches. Overall, the dress is very comfortable and forgiving. It hid my stomach pretty well and was very light. The sequins were simple yet sophisticated. I only gave this dress 4 stars because it was too big and too long. Other than that, I would've given it 5.

Beautiful dress
I rented this dress for a formal event. After reading tons of reviews I rented one size down from my normal size, and the next size down below that. The 8 fit great. A tiny bit large in the bust, but a strapless bra fixed that. I also fit into the 6, but a larger bust gal must have worn it before me and the bust was really stretched out. The dress is very flattering on any shape person. I would recommend to anyone! Loved this dress!!

Loved it but order a size or two smaller than what you wear!
The dress was absolutely beautiful however I typically wear a size 4 or 6 in dresses and the size 4 for this dress was still pretty big on me. I used safety pins to keep it from falling off. Regardless, the dress was stunning, great quality, and I would definitely recommend it!

Looks like it's cut from the night sky, absolutely beautiful dress
The best dress I could've hoped for. I used fashion tape on the top and didn't have to pull it up at all, since it's really lightweight despite there being so much of it. The 0R wasn't available so I ordered the 0L after reading reviews that my usual 2 would likely be too big. It wasn't too long, I wore 6 inch heels with it and it still touched the ground, the only real issue was when the ground was wet and I had to carry an armful of dress in order for it to not get wet. But seriously, rent this dress, I never imagined how beautiful and comfortable I would feel in it. You will not be disappointed.

No one had my dress at my prom! So unique and sparkly.
I wore this for my senior prom and loved it! However I ordered both the 4R and 6R and the 4 fit a tad snug but I had to wear it because 6 was missing the wire in the bust of the dress. So, I could have worn the 6 too if I wanted, both dresses fit me. The length was perfect with my 3 inch heels( I'm 5'6'') Overall, beautiful gown!

The dress ran very large, I probably could've worn a 2, it is also very long. I didn't find myself having to pull the dress up very often, which was nice. It looks gorgeous when you walk, dance, or do anything. I highly recommend, just be sure to SIZE DOWN!!!

BEST PROM DRESS
Honestly this dress is indescribable. I was anxious to receive the dresses in the mail. I had ordered the 0L & 2R. The day before I was supposed to receive the dress, I got an email saying that they wouldn't be able to send the 0L. Which panicked me because that was the size that was going to fit. But in the end the 2R was the perfect length with my 3 1/2 inch heels. It was a little bit big, but I just used fashion tape to keep it up all night long. I had a lot of compliments; it was a unique dress that made it stand out. I wish I could keep this dress forever!!!!

Felt like a princess and was showered in compliments all night!
I usually wear a ten, ordered both a ten and an eight and wore the eight, but a six would probably have been better. Wore it with a necklace I also rented. The color is gorgeous and it's a very comfortable dress. Only needed 1-inch heels so the dress wouldn't drag. Matched my date perfectly and got tons of compliments throughout the entire night. Felt like a princess! Didn't want to send gown back. I'll probably rent it again if the occasion calls for it!

Amazing dress and amazing staff
I wore this gorgeous Rebecca Taylor gown for my senior prom paired with the Ella Carter Aubrey earrings and Badgley Mischka Cybil Silver Clutch. I rented my dress and accessories from RTR last year for prom and was in love with my look and the company. My accessories were perfect and I loved my dress, however it was WAY too big. I usually wear a size 4R and got a 2R for my backup size. Both dresses were way too big, and the 2R had stains all over it. I contacted RTR and they said they would overnight me another dress since my dress was sold out in smaller sizes. Because my date had already matched his tux to my dress I had to stick with this one so the RTR staff sent me an unstained 2R (still to big) immediately and I made it work. Overall I was happy with my look and understand that there are risks that come with this type of company, however there staff truly does whatever they can to make your experience wonderful. I definitely recommend this dress but go a size down for your first size and even another size down for your backup.

Loved the color, and sparkles on the dress!! Helped me feel more like a princess.
I absolutely loved this dress, the design and how many layers the dress had and how comfortable it was! But the top runs extra large. I had to pin it on to my bra because if I didn't, I would have fallen straight off. Also, ladies who consider themselves short stick with petite!!!!

First RTR & the convenience was perfect!
First RTR experience and it was so easy! I didn't even try on the 8 because the 6 was still slightly big. I think a 4R would have been perfect. The material stretches so I would go 2 sizes smaller than you're used to (I don't wear dresses much so I didn't know my normal size-the reviews with height and weight really helped me so thanks!!) The bust was too big, but some double sided tape did the trick. The regular length was too short with 3" heels but just perfect with 1.5". Overall, it was a great night and the dress was gorgeous!

My favorite dress so far!
I absolutely LOVED wearing this dress! It was much fancier than I expected but it was a blast to dance in. The dress was a little on the big size so I wore the smaller of the two- and was able to go bra-less which is alway a plus. It is so light! There is a lot of fabric to swoosh around with but you'd never know it by the weight of the gown. This is the first dress I wish I had purchased. Rent it and enjoy!

Beautiful, lightweight gown full of sparkle
As other reviewers said, this dress runs really large. I normally wear a 12 so I ordered one size down and two sizes down for my backup (10 and 8). They both fit because the back is elastic, so it just came down to length as the larger size was a touch longer. I ended up not choosing this dress because it was a little too flashy for a day wedding IMHO but I would rent again for a special event. The fabric is lightweight and comfortable, but a bra is absolutely required as the top is so stretchy.

fun, flattering dress for a black tie wedding
Actually this is a 6R, could have pulled off a 4P but i have boobs so I didnt want to chance it with a smaller size. Originally wanted a 6P so I didnt have to wear heels but it ended up being unavailable at the last minute and the RTR staff was very helpful rearranging the order. Unfortunately the dress's boning (small plastic pieces giving them their shape) had come out of its caging and was poking me all night! Otherwise it was great and I received a lot of compliments. First time RTR wear and I'll be back for more

Black tie perfection!
This dress definitely runs large. I read the other reviews and totally agree that this dress is big. I'm generally between an 8 and a 6, so I ordered the 6 with the 8 as a backup and wished that I had ordered a 4. The top was pretty stretched out, so I had to keep tugging it up. Also the skirt was pretty long, so I spent most of the night holding the bottom of the dress up. I also noticed a few flaws in the dress when I first pulled out of the bag (a tiny hole at the back, and boning poking out on the inside), nothing seemed really drastic though so I didn't worry about it. Also it's worth noting that I am 3 months pregnant with twins and this dress totally covered up my growing belly/bloat while leaving enough room for me to breath. Overall loved this dress, and coincidentally there was a meteor shower tonight!

The dress definitely runs large in the bust. I needed to safety pin it to hold it up. It would not have stayed up on its own.

Did not fit at all. Luckily I was overnighted a dress that did!
This dress is gorgeous but runs so large! I ordered my normal size and a size down as a backup. Even the smaller one was huge in the bust. I was really disappointed that it didn't fit but thankful I had another dress overnighted to me that did, although it wasn't the dress I originally chose.

This dress runs very very large. Based on other reviews I thought it would be true to size, wrong.
I put a few well placed stitches into the bodice and thought, "This should do the trick." I tried the dress on again, nope the back of the dress where there is supposed to be a little elastic to the bodice was clearly so overworked that it had no stretchy-ness left for me. Same with the second size that was shipped. I legit covered myself in fashion tape put on a padded strapless bra and spent the night sitting at my table.

My accessories went perfectly with the dress!!
Fits large. If you don't have a large chest to hold it up (I don't) you'll need to get some dress tape to make sure it doesn't slip around (I didn't, and spent half my time on the dance floor fussing wit my dress). That was the only negative about the dress! The elastic in the back gave me a little extra wiggle room and I didn't feel self conscious about my waist because the flowy fabric fell perfectly and disguised all my "trouble spots".

Great experience. Arrived a day early and was really beautiful.
Definitely runs large. The 6 fit me and I'd say in usually a 10. Got tons of compliments all night. There was definitely some wear and tear on the dress with sequins missing in spots, but even with that being said you could not really tell and it was still a beautiful dress. Definitely a little long but not terrible. I definitely felt beautiful in this dress

Dress looked great
As all the reviews say, this runs really large. I own a dress that's a 12 that just fits me and I ended up wearing this dress in a size 4. It was a long on me even though I wore the p option but it worked out. Only complaint is how worn it is and that there was boning that was twisted and kinda poked me

Great service would use again!
Listen to the reviews for this dress as it runs large. Wore a 2 because the bust was loose on the 4. Had a great time in the dress and loved how it looked while dancing. Would totally rent again. Dress came on time and both were in great condition.

I wore this to my prom and it was gorgeous! The sparkles were eye-catching!
I'm glad I got a second smaller size. I usually wear a 10R but it was too big for me around the bust and stomach area. The 8R was just right! Did fall down a little throughout the night but that's the risk of wearing a strapless dress to a dance. Fashion tape was a discreet and easy fix though!
