Runs way big

Dress was pretty but runs so big. I'm usually a 4 but had ordered the size 2, even with a 32DDD chest the chest was way too big. I kept having to pull it up all night. I would definitely recommend sizing down a size or even two. Otherwise great dress and like the color and material.

Great dress but runs big!

I'm normally a size 6 and have never had to order a 2nd size. I wish I did for this dress because a size 4 would have fit better. I still wore the dress and it looked fine and I received compliments on it so all was not lost. The dress itself is SUPER comfortable! It's a heavy material but the skirt moves very nicely.

Easy, classic dress for a wedding or cocktail party.

I normally wear a size 14, but I sized up on my extra to 16 because I always get nervous it'll be too small. But this dress runs large (and is roomy anyway) -- should've gone with a 12. My fault! Despite the imperfect fit, the dress was classic and flattering. Bonuses: You won't need any out-of-the-usual bra or shape wear. The navy color is a cinch to accessorize. And the material is thick and forgiving.

Runs large needed to order a size down. Color reads more black.

Dress runs so big, I couldn't even wear it : (

I usually wear a dress size 4, so I ordered a size 4 and a size 6 to be safe. The 4 was so big I couldn't even wear it, and RTR didn't have a size 2 in stock to send me. I was so disappointed because the dress was beautiful and the fabric was stretchy and comfy.

RUNS LARGE

I was unable to wear this dress because it was TOO LARGE. I typically wear a size 16 dress so I ordered that size and size 14... both fell off of me! (I guess that is a good thing) so I was unable to wear this dress. I would suggest you order 2 sizes down if you love this dress. The fabric is thick and has beautiful pleating. It was a gorgeous dress! Perfect length for a 5'6" woman. The V neck is deep so hopefully you have a chest to fill out the gown! Remember... order 2 sizes smaller!!

Beautiful dress.

I loved the look of this dress but didn't love the fabric. It also ran a little big, so I wasn't able to wear it for the occasion. Would rent again in a smaller size.

Customer service was wonderful in helping me select a different dress

I typically wear a size 12. I rented both a 10 and a 12 and they were both big. They didn't have an 8 available so I selected a different dress. It's a lot of fabric. Wouldn't work for someone who has hips or a more pear figure- may make you look bigger than you are.

Size 1-2 sizes down

The heavy material makes this dress perfect for the fall wedding I attended, but I would not recommend it at all for a summer wedding. The sweetheart neckline is deep but it really makes the dress look sexy and balances out the almost cupcake effect of the pleats. If you're conscious about your hips this may not be the dress for you but I liked the slimming effect it gave my waist. I'm so happy I listened to other reviews when they said to size 2 sizes down. Anything larger than the 8 would have been too big and I usually wear a 10-12. The only cons were that the dress is such a dark navy that it looks black in almost all the lighting in my house. Also I'm 5'4" and the dress gapped at the shoulders a touch but nothing that would keep me from wearing it. It also hit a touch above my knees. You can get away with a regular bra which is nice.

Great dress, but runs large

Overall fit is large. I would order a size down and two sizes down for your back up size. This dress would have gotten a 5 star rating if it didn't run so large. However, the color was pretty and the neckline was great. It was very comfortable to dance in and was a heavier material. Great rental dress (but order small!)

Receipt and return was the most hassle free experience. Highly recommend RTR & will use it again.

Like everyone else said, this dress runs large but I rented fairly close to the event date so a smaller size wasn't available. Customer service was amazing at helping me get a backup dress (which sat in the closet because this one was so gorgeous). The material is very thick and forgiving. Even though it was a little loose, this was hands down the most comfortable dress I've ever worn. Loved the neckline, the length and the slight poof in the skirt. We got our picture taken almost as much as the bride! Can't wait for another event so I can use RTR again.

This dress was so fun to wear!

I loved wearing this dress! I'm glad I got a back-up smaller size though. I wore a 2 a normally wear a 6. I could've easily worn a 0 in this dress. Other than that, I would definitely recommend this dress, just order a smaller size!

I loved this dress, definitely one that I was sad to send back. It's incredibly comfortable, and the low neckline is sexy without feeling too revealing. It is perfect for an hourglass figure.

Everything a new mommy wants to hear! I wore this to my little brother's wedding. It was PERFECT! The dress was very flattering and forgiving. I'm glad I ordered a size smaller as my back up. The larger size would have been ok, but the smaller fit almost like it was made to measure!

It runs very large and probably could have gone down one size, maybe even two, so I had to use some double sided tape, but it was worth it for the compliments!

Runs very large

After reading the reviews I ordered a size smaller than I normally do and upon receipt realized I should have ordered 2 sizes smaller. The material is very stretchy. Because it was so big the flared skirt made me feel large and I chose not to wear this. I would suggest ordering a size smaller and 2 sizes smaller as a backup.

Endless compliments

This dress fit great and was perfect for a fall wedding. I was able to wear a regular bra with it and didn't need any form of spanx. The cut is perfect...not too long or short...it supported my chest area as well. I would definitely recommend this for any occasion.

Need to ask a question. I am 5'5" and about 180.....so similar specs to you. I have a little tummy from my last pregnancy. Do you feel this dress would hide it or make it look terrible? I'm very self-concious about my tummy

Gorgeous, classic dress

The dress was a beautiful, thick fabric that felt comfortable all evening at our November engagement party. The colour definitely reads more black than navy and photographs very well. The smaller size fit better it the waist for my hourglass figure, but the pleats fell better in the larger size. I'd recommend anyone with wider hips to order their true size and a size down and see which one gives a better silhouette. The dress sat at my natural waist. Definitely a comfortable amount of room in the bust, I'm a 40DD and felt like a goddess. Paired this dress with the Slate & Willow Camellia necklace (also rented from RTR) which I felt was flattering with the beautiful neckline that this dress has. Well constructed, though my back-up size needed the hem and stitching around the neckline boning to be repaired. Will definitely be renting this dress again!

Great dress. Runs large like everyone said it does.

Runs large. I am usually a 10 dress size and I wore the 8. Could have possibly gone down to a 6. Really great dress though.

LOVE this dress!

This is a gorgeous dress! I received so many compliments. I read the reviews before I ordered & I'm glad I did. The dress runs large in size, so I ordered a size 8 with back up in 6 & ended up wearing the 6. This was my first time renting from RTR & I will definitely be renting from here again. The service was great & the dress arrived on time!

Heavy beautiful fabric

Heavy fabric suitable for winter or fall parties. I'm a size 6 and the 2 wasn't even tight, but the waist was too short so I wore the four which was roomy but not gaping anywhere. Lots of compliments! Perfect amongst a sea of red and black holiday dresses

It runs big- I could have used a size 12 even though I normally wear a 14. It still fit great and was really comfortable and flattering. Wish I could have kept it!

Flattering, Flirty, Fun

I love, love, love this dress. Seriously considered keeping it forever. I read the reviews of the dress before I ordered it and followed the 2 dress size down rule. I usually wear a size 6/8 and I got a 2 and 4. I ended up wearing the 2 and still had a little bit of room in it. I'm a little bit on the bustier end, and it was so incredibly flattering without being too show-offy. I wore black wedges with it and minimal jewelry.

Most comfortable dress ever!

I'm normally between an 8 & 10 in dresses, but I sized down, based on other reviews, to a 6. I could have worn a 4, easily!! The material is so stretchy and thick enough to hide any tummy flaws - I felt like I could go to bed in it, it was that comfortable. I was worried about the neckline flopping down, but it was wire in it to help it keep shape and stay upright. LOVED this dress!

Nice dress for a night out

I rented this rather last minute, so I didn't have the choice to size down, but it would have helped. Dress ran large but it was beautiful - heavy, lovely fabric, great fit - love the flowy skirt and the sexy v-neck cut out which is held in place with a metal that is sewn into it so it doesn't lose its shape, and great rental price. All in all, this was a win. Next time I'll rent a smaller size, but I was so happy to have this to fall back on!

I wasn't able to wear this dress

This dress is a great, heavy but soft material. I have a larger chest C/D and it was too big in the chest area as well as loose in the waist. I would have liked to have worn this dress as it is beautiful. I would recommend sizing down.

Great event dress, runs large!

This dress was super cute. The navy was perfect in person and the fabric was very thick, which was nice for a January wedding. I am large in the bust 34DDD, and found myself concerned with being "too" chesty at a conservative wedding. I rented the 8 and the 10. I wore the 8 but think the 6 would have done the trick since the upper part of the dress is supposed to be form fitting and the material is giving/stretchy.

Tons of Complements! Very flattering dress!

I normally wear a size 12 dress and the 10 was too big! Luckily the material doesn't make it look too big. I would have been great in an 8. The material is heavy, but I was still a comfortable temperature for a hawaiian wedding. People came up to me all night asking where I got the dress and wanted to buy one! Overall, I LOVED the dress and would highly recommend it for anyone!

Too large and quite short

This dress runs very large. I have a larger bust (36 DD) and usually require a size up, but the 10 in this dress was too large. In addition, the dress is quite short in real life, and the skirt also extends quite wider than pictured. This dress would be perfect for a pear shaped individual or an hourglass figure, but make sure you size down by one or even two sizes.

Too big to wear, but if it fit I think I would've loved it

I read all the reviews before ordering this dress, and everyone kept saying it ran large. But I have rented other dressed in my size and they were WAY too small. Different designers, different cuts I suppose. SO I rented my usual size, and because it was fitted in the waste went a size up in my back up (I am carrying about 20lbs more than usual right now so got nervous). Well my usual size was way too big, so the back up a size larger wouldn't work either. It was DARLING just shockingly stretchy in the material. I have another event this spring, and may go back to it, and down a size then. It really was pretty, just not the material I was expecting.

Pretty, but added too much bulk where I didn't want it

I rented this dress as an option to wear to a wedding in Virginia in late January. The fabric was heavier than I was expecting, which would have been nice for the chilly weather but overall I just didn't like the way the dress fit me. I'm pear shaped and the dress' full skirt and pleats added way too much bulk to my lower half. I would have worn the larger size even though it would have been a bit too big on top because it seemed to lay a bit flatter to my legs. The neckline was beautiful so I was a little bummed I didn't like the bottom better. Overall, though, this just wasn't the dress for me.

Not for anyone who normally wears a zero or a two.

The fabric was great, the cut was great, but it runs really large. Do not rent this if you are small chested, straight and narrow, or wear anything below a four.

Perfect little black dress!

This dress fit perfectly! It does run dress large though, I typically wear a 12/14 and I ended up wearing the 10 which was still big around my waist and shoulders. It also is a little bit more showy in the chest than I had anticipated but the cut is so flattering! I did not want to return this dress! I will definitely be renting again!
