Runs large
I'm normally a 4/6 in dresses but need to send this back and get a 2L! It has the perfect amount of shimmer and barely sweeps the floor and looks great on us tall gals!

First RTR order and it was perfect. Rented for bridesmaid dress for blush & champagne theme
This fit is incredibly comfortable and a little larger in size. I thought I'd have to wear the 14 due to bust size but the 12 was better and couple have maybe worn a 10. True to color. Length was great. Got lots of compliments.

Color and level of sparkle were perfect for the black tie wedding I attended.
Neckline was subtle and straps held up perfectly. Only complaint was that it was long. I'm 5' 5" and had to wear with 4 inch heels and it still skimmed the ground.

Fun and young!
The fit on this dress runs large. I could have worn the 8L but I chose to wear the 10L because it was a little looser/baggier so I could get away with making it look less formal. Love this dress and the color! Texture is amazing.

Beautiful prom dress
Very beautiful and classy dress, I got a lot of compliments. A perfect dress for your senior prom if you're looking for something simply yet glam. It was also very easy for me to dance in. The only con would be that the straps were a little too big.

Perfect Bridesmaid's Dress
The top is a little heavy, so it felt large as if it was falling down. The smaller size was better. The length was a little long for me, but it worked with higher heels. This was the perfect alternative to buying a bridesmaid's dress I'd never wear again. I got many compliments.

Perfect for a nursing mother!
I rented this for a wedding that was 7 weeks after I gave birth to my son. I needed something that was a little forgiving for my postpartum body and was also easy to nurse in. This one worked great! It could easily be dressed up or down and was super comfortable. The only reason I didn't give it 5 starts was that it didn't fit quite perfectly, but I blame that more in my awkward leftover baby weight than the dress ;)

This is so helpful! Wondering how I will nurse in a formal gown. Great feedback.

Stunning!
I originally ordered a different dress and hated the fit so RTR sent me this one overnight and I could not have been happier. It was perfect! I can't even begin to tell you how many people stopped me to tell me how gorgeous it was. This was my formal dress for engagement photos and on a warm night, the lightweight fabric was so appreciated. Such a flattering fit for a curvy girl. Comfortable, beautiful color...I could go on and on. It is pretty long so if you're tall that's great but if you're just average or short then be sure you know that going in. I'll rent this again!

Very pretty and elegant
This dress was perfect for a reception for a close friend who got married in Venice then came home to celebrate. It is pretty long, I had to wear the tallest heels I own (and I'm 5'7") so that I didn't step on it. It's a little pinker than the picture shows. I was able to wear regular underwear and a normal strapless bra. I got lots of compliments on it and I would love to have another event to wear it to!

Pretty/safe dress
I was a bridesmaid in my friends wedding. I had never used RTR before so I was nervous. I picked this dress because I have a large bust (36 DD). I am almost 5'5'' and I weigh around 165. I ordered a size 12 and 14 both regular length. I wore the 12 and couldn't wear any heels with it (which was fine only because I was more comfortable) I've never had to order "long" in pants or dresses before so I was surprised when I put on my wedges that my dress was too short for it. Also, I tried on other heels with it. They were all too high for the dress, mind you the heels themselves were not high heels at all. The straps on my dress were too big and kept falling off me throughout the evening so with that being said- I could have ordered a size 10 long. The dress was pretty and I liked it fine. I would suggest it!

LOVED IT
I have an athletic build - no discernible waistline, broad shoulders and a modest bust, normally I would never try a dress like this on, but I was desperate for a gown in this color and my options were limited. I'm SO thankful I tried it on because it was perfect. It doesn't require any shape wear, only a nude strapless. It was comfortable, cool (summer outdoor wedding was not a problem for this dress) and I received compliments all evening.

Perfect bridesmaid/wedding guest dress
Loved this dress! More pink in real life than the rtr pictures. Could have probably worn either 2 or 4, was a little long even with heels but I'm 5'2. Only issue was the sequins weren't the most comfortable when your arms touched the bottom of the dress but otherwise such a great dress!

Perfect for a Bridesmaid dress
This dress is fabulous. The pattern photos well- it isn't too heavy even with the beading like you might expect- I wasn't too warm at any point. I am between a 4 and 6 depending on the designer- I definitley needed the two or the zero. My friend pinned the straps because it was cutting me in half the way it was sitting on my hips. It made it look much much better and I was 10x more comfortable. I think if you order a size down you'll be good to go!

Bridal Shower Hit!
I'm normally a size 16, but ended up wearing the 14. I wore this for my bridal shower & everyone loved it. Really comfortable & perfect for the occasion. I will caution anyone taller than 5'4 to not wear heels, or get the long option. I'm 5'2 & the dress was a perfect length for me to wear flats. Which NEVER happens!

Beautiful gown for a sorority convention
I wore this to my sorority convention gala. Great dress for someone with large bust. Received compliments all evening. The color is pale pink. I'm 5'7" and wore 2" wedges, and got a long. A regular would have been too short. Looked great with gold jewelry.

The event was wonderful! I received many compliments on the dress which made me happy.
The fit was perfect. I have small shoulders so usually I have to pin the extra strap material to the back of the dress. It was a simple fix. I'm 5'2 and wore 5 inch heels so it didn't touch the floor at all, even though it wasn't a petite fit. It was comfortable and camouflaged my 36DDD chest well without any worries of spillage. :-) I would wear this designer again.

The perfect amount of shine for a rustic outdoor wedding! It was even long enough for this girl!!
The 4L was the perfect length with a shorter nude pump. I felt beautiful and got so many compliments all night. I would definitely size down in this dress. Great quality and easy to dance the night away in!

One of my best friend's weddings! It was a great day and night.
This dress is pretty and fun! Very comfortable and flattering. Received a ton of compliments. I'm 5'7'' and wore 4'' heels. The dress was still a little long. It's great for someone with a large bust. It fit in the bust, yet was still figure flattering in the waist, without being tight.

I was breast pumping throughout the night and I was able to easily drop the straps and pull the dress down without having to unzip the dress. I'm 5'4" and wore 2 in heels and flats and the length was perfect.

Perfect for my glam mommy-and-me session!
This dress was so gorgeous. The color is a perfect peach and it was a great cut. I felt amazing in it and wish I had a reason to wear it for a longer period of time. It would have been easy to dance in and would have been elegant for a nice event. It fit pretty true-to-size, but was a little scratchy underneath the armpits (hence the 4-star rating). However, on the plus side, there is a supersoft lining underneath that made the dress really comfortable.

Beautiful dress, flowy, eye catching, comfortable
Fit nicely, I have a small bust so I wore my backup size which was a size smaller than I usually wear. Dress is flowy and comfortable and allowed me to do my excessive dance moves . I was a wedding guest and I got a lot of compliments on it from other guests

Just OK
While the dress looked good with the other bridesmaids dresses, it fit really weird. It was giant and awkward on everyone. I'm normally a 4/6 and had tons of room in the 2. The sequins on the dress gave all 3 of the girls rashes under our arms. Could be a bump dress, especially if you don't know what size you'll be in the future but need to order your dress now. Lots of room in the bust and stomach.

Lots of complements. It arrived a day late, glad I picked two days before event to have delivered.
The dress fit perfectly. I was 3 months postpartum with nursing boobs was afraid it wasn't going to fit but it fit. I wore heels, length was great. Did come wrinkled but didn't have a steamer and an couldn't use an iron on this dress.

Constant compliments throughout the night!
I wore this dress for a wedding. This was the most beautiful dress I've EVER worn! Although the name is "Apricot" it is definitively more pinkish in person. I ordered a 0R and 0L because I was unsure with my 5'8 height whether I would be wearing sandals or heels. I also read this dress runs big. I ended up wearing sandals and the 0R, although I'm sure if I wore heels I still would not need the 0L size. My only complaint about this dress is that the sequins can get a little uncomfortable in the underarm area after several hours of wear. It didn't start to bother me until the end of the night. All in all, this is the most amazing dress and I would wear it 10 times again, I felt so glamorous! Thanks RTR!

The size was very generous. I am 5 foot tall and I was wearing high heels and that worked perfectly. The only problem was the sequins on the side rub my arms.

Shimmery pink dress that was fun to try on!
I didn't actually wear this dress for the event. Size 0R was pretty loose on me. I am 5'4" and tried on the dress with 3.5" heels. I think size 0P would have fit better. I attached 2 selfies I took when trying the dress on. The top was very loose, and I think it looked too big on my frame. It also made my already flat chest disappear altogether. Despite the fit, I liked the color of the dress a lot. It shimmered very nicely under the light, especially as you walk. One reservation I had about the dress was that it looks sort of like a bridesmaid dress since it's light pink and a fairly plain style.

Beautiful Dress - Perfect For Tall Girls!
Love, love, loved this dress. I wore it as a maid of honor in my best friends wedding, where our parameters were we could wear any dress as long as it was floor length and blush. I'm 5' 10", and the tall option (6L) was perfect with 3 inch wedges. I think I could have even gotten away with the regular length if I had worn flats. I have a mid section that I like to try and hide, and this dress really did give the illusion of a smaller stomach while still hugging my curves and not looking frumpy. The ONLY thing that I didn't like - because the material was lace and sequins, it was a bit uncomfortable under my arms. It rubbed and left little red lines under my arm pits and along my chest, which was slightly uncomfortable and certainly not ideal. Maybe something could be places there (a small piece of fabric or some tape?) to prevent rubbing. Other than that - it was awesome!

True to size. I wore spanks and a strapless bra. The straps were a little long and fell off my shoulders. But over all I loved the dress and would wear it again.
