Great formal dress for short women!

I rented this dress for a black tie wedding. I am 5 feet tall and Even without heels this dress did not drag behind me. I got compliments all night. The fabric is very thick so this is great for fall or winter.

Rent this immediately - especially if you're short!

Absolutely LOVED this rental. The compliments didn't stop coming from the second I put it on. And it looks 10x better in person. Small busted women - this may be loose for you in the chest. But the dress has boning to keep it up. It's also perfect for short women because it gives you that full-length formal look minus the alterations! Do yourself a favor and rent this one ASAP!

This is a beautiful dress. The colors are elegant and the fabric is high quality.

The top of the dress fit perfectly, but it was too long for my 5'3" height. The fabric is heavy and, even with heels, I felt that the bottom of the dress looked too big/long and did not showcase the hi-low skirt. I have a curvy rear, and where the pleat fell in the back made my rear look too curvy;) I was sad that I was not able to wear it for the event.

Beautiful, comfortable evening gown, esp for super pregnant ladies!

I wore this to a black tie wedding in the summer heat at 34 weeks pregnant [150lbs] and couldn't have been happier with my choice. The bust felt a bit tight on me (my hubby had to put some effort into zipping me up [38DD at the time] -- I probably could have sized up, but I was worried about too big/long of a skirt), but it ended up holding everything together really well. The pleating and skirt draped beautifully over my big bump, and it hid my maternity belt well. I felt pretty comfortable throughout the night and received so many unexpected compliments. Definitely a great option for those looking for maternity-friendly evening gowns!

The print really stood out among a sea of black dresses. I got so many compliments!

fits very snug in the waist/upper - interior corset is amazing so you don't have to wear a bra! full skirt on bottom hides everything and is very comfortable. Length is fun - shorter in front, long in back. fabric is luxurious and print is beautiful.

Black Tie Crowd-Pleaser

I wore this dress to a black tie wedding over the weekend and I felt like royalty! The fabric of the dress had a nice weight to it, and it was comfortable all night and easy to dance in. Plus, it has POCKETS! My sole complaint is that, after following the website recommendations, I ordered a size up as my backup, when really I should've gone with a size down-- the 10R was a little loose on me, but I used some safety pins to attach the dress to my bra (a strapless corset/bustier) to avoid any possible wardrobe malfunctions. All in all, this was my favorite rental from RTR to date, and I will absolutely be renting this dress again in the future.

20 weeks pregnant, this dress is fitted up top and pleats at the appropriate spot for a baby bump.

5'6" usually 120lbs, about 130lbs at time of wear. Hid baby bump well, comfortable and flattering. Plenty of compliments!

Want to rent in bigger size!

I chose this dress as a third option, behind two others that I thought I would like more. It turned out it was my favorite of the three, but was just a tad too small. I plan to rent the next size up for my event.

I loved this dress, flattering and very comfortable, super high quality.

I'd say it came up a little large, a four would likely have been tight but the 6 was definitely roomy.

LOVE this dress!

The dress was so comfortable & it has pockets! The material was thick so it ran a little hot. But it was perfect for a cool weather night wedding. The high-low really helped the dress stand out. The red in the design wasn't over powering (I never would wear red to a wedding big no no) which I was worried about. All in all this dress was outstanding. I got compliments all night.

Stunning dress

Could not have felt more beautiful in this dress, so many compliments even after the event was over, I felt incredible in it. No bra needed to support which was great, it was snug In the bust and I needed help with the zipper but it was good because it never fell down, and I had support, which is perfect for strapless. I would recommend getting your size and one up if you have a larger bust and ribcage

Stunning and different

I never would have chosen this style on my own, but the stylist at the Georgetown store pulled it as an extra to what I requested. Photos don't do it justice...colors are subtle yet striking. The structured high-low hemline and inward pleats fall beautifully and add unique interest. Plus, this dress is incredibly comfortable. I had no need for a bra or shapewear, and the strapless style stayed put. And it has pockets! I loved wearing it.

The pockets were a delight and the fit was glorious!

I rented this dress for a wedding, originally in an 8R. It was a bit snug, so I called RTR and got a 10R. It fit wonderfully! I received endless comments on it and with the boning and structure on the top of the dress, I didn't have to wear a bra! I would definitely rent this again!

Perfect dress for autumn/winter formal events!

I loved wearing this dress to a formal fall wedding. It's very feminine with a full skirt and the pockets are plus! I would recommend sizing down if you have a smaller bust. I would have been more comfortable in a 2R (I'm a 32B for reference) but I ordered my usual size 4 and sized up for the backup dress.

I received this dress as a backup, as my original dress was only available in 1 size.

I'm not usually someone who cares how many likes they get on a FB post, but let me tell you, that all changed after this dress. I received so many compliments at the wedding I wore this to, I felt more beautiful than I ever have in my life. It fit me like a glove, has stays in the bodice to keep it from slipping down, hit me about at the ankle, and worked perfectly with the standard 3 inch heel. Best part of it all, IT HAS POCKETS, big enough to carry my phone on one side, and the bottle of Dasani I inexplicably brought to the church on the other. 10/10 would rent again, probably would buy it if it goes on sale.

This was a perfect dress to wear to a wedding when I was 6 months pregnant. Lots of compliments!

I normally wear a size 4 or 6 in these kinds of dresses and sized up to a 10 for pregnancy. I would say that it was a little snug around the rib cage, but the 12 would have been too big. I don't think it matters what size your bump is because it will fit over it. You have to think more about the new size of your ribcage and how much your breasts have grown.

We went to the ballet, and I loved that this dress was the perfect balance of semi-formal and formal

I fluctuate between a 6 & an 8. I wore the 8R in this dress, couldn't even get the 6R zipped. The color of the dress was gorgeous and I received compliments all night. (This was my back up dress and I am so glad my original pick was a no show). This dress was classy and I would recommend it.

Beautiful dress and super comfortable. I received multiple compliments.

I would order 1 size up. I felt the chest area was very tight. I am a 34DD and had a difficult time fitting in a 10 because of the top. I would normally wear size 8 or 10, but needed a 12 in this dress. But, the dress is beautiful! The colors are very vibrant and it is completely comfortable.

Beautiful dress, but not quite perfect...

The print on this dress is absolutely stunning - vibrant and rich - and I loved the high-low skirt, but the cut of the bodice was not quite right for me. I'm fairly busty (32DDD), and while the bodice was supportive (I loved that the bodice had its own separate hook so that it acted as a built in strapless bra), the cut of the top dipped low on either side in a way that highlighted that undesirable roll between your arm and breast. Aside from that, it was truly perfect, but I had a second dress (a similar strapless gown by Jill Jill Stuart) that was more flattering in the bust so I wore that instead. If you're smaller chested, this dress might be perfect for you! It runs true to size.

I felt amazing wearing this dress! Never have I ever received so many compliments on a dress!

My size was probably somewhere in between the 4 and the 2 and I decided on the 2. It was a bit snug in the bust area but the 4 was a little too loose in the ribcage area. My only real complaint was the zipper was a bit difficult, other than that I loved the dress.

Lovely cut, just a little too much spillage up top

This was my backup dress for a formal affair. I preferred the fit of this because the it complimented my shape better than my first pick, but it was too narrow across the top. I liked the hi-low hem. The color is a violet navy with red flowers, so I'm not sure what shoes I would have worn with this dress. Black shoes were too much of a contrast.

Beautiful dress for a formal event

I wore this dress to a formal wedding. It’s beautiful. I received so many compliments, including from strangers going to a from the wedding. I got both and 8 and a 10 and the fit was better for the 8 but my boobs are huge so went with that for comfort. Highly recommend.

I got so many compliments on this dress, I wish I could've kept it!

The quality of the material and the lush color really made the dress. It's such a flattering cut and best of all, it's SO fun to dance in. It felt like a vintage dress, old Hollywood, and it was very comfortable. My only mistake, I should've sized down and I would recommend anyone small on top to do so. I'm normally an 8 in RTR, especially Shoshanna and Badgley Mischka, but the 6 would've been better in this one. But, I still loved it so much!

Have never received more compliments!

Absolutely loved this dress for an evening black tie optional wedding. This fabric w boning in the bodice meant no need for a strapless bra and stayed up without me having to tug. Fabric is a great weight for fall/winter weddings and the colors were vibrant without being overly bright. Pockets are a definite plus and structured such that people can't tell you have anything in them if you actually want to carry phone, lipstick etc. Length was great tea length good for dancing and the hi-low cut wasn't overly dramatic. I have larger hips w a narrower waist/chest and would recommend sizing for upper half as the skirt and lining are not fitted, so I had plenty of room for my hips/butt which can sometimes be an issue trying to fit both my top and bottom. Ultimately have never gotten more complements on a dress and was thrilled with the pick!

An elegant dress that will win you tasteful attention from all party goers

Pro's: excellent fabric quality, the dress was in perfect condition, pockets are deep enough to hold your phone while dancing and not fall out, no need to wear a bra or double stick tape, wrinkle-free, won't show any spills in pictures, fabric photographed well in all lighting conditions The mother of the bride said I was the best dressed at the whole wedding! When I walked across the room the dress would float and people would comment on my 'gracefulness'. I felt confident and comfortable the entire night and would recommend it to anyone else who wants to go for a classier look at their event.

Coco Wrap Party a Success!

Getting this dress to me was a bit of a struggle, but the RTR staff offered me a half-refund because it got lost and late and an item was switched out. But in the end, it got there three hours before I had to go to the party, and I couldn't have been happier with the dress. I felt like a princess! Under no other circumstances would I be able to afford a dress like this. It fit like a dream! With some strapless dresses there's a fear of it falling down, but this dress didn't have that. I danced hard all night and never even pulled it up! Good for curvy ladies as it accentuates your hips while making your waist look smaller! Overall a gorgeous dress with POCKETS; 10/10 would rent again. It was my 21st birthday weekend, the event was a Pixar Wrap Party, and RTR made it unforgettable! It won't let me update my "About You" so I'm 5'3", 32C, Hourglass body shape, 140 pounds.

Stunning, expensive looking dress!

I am 5'2" without heels (5'5" with), 145lbs and almost 6 months pregnant and this dress couldn't have been more perfect! The top fit like a glove (although, it doesn't do much for my boobs) and the bottom of the dress is flowy, regal, and does a perfect job of fitting and sometimes concealing my bump! The dress has pockets too, which is super fun. The material feels expensive, the dress was in perfect condition, and the design of the dress made me feel like I should be on the red carpet! I had a pair of burgundy suede peep toe Michael Kors pumps that matched perfectly, but I bet you could do black, nude, or even navy shoes. This is by far the most favorite dress I've ever worn. I got tons of compliments...colors were perfect for an evening fall wedding!
