Stylist Review!

Such a fun style! Obsessed with the fall color of this dress and the lace material. Great dress to wear to work. Tea length on a 5'6" model, a little longer on me because I am 5'2". I typically wear a size 10 so this dress was a little too tight for me, however, it is very true to size. I would suggest sizing up for the back up as I had difficulty zipping the size down. This style works best for A -C cup sizes as it is very fitted at the bust and there is no stretch to the fabric. This dress is very fitted at the natural waist and curvier women should consider sizing up by at least one size for comfortable room at the hips. This dress can be worn with any standard bra and would look amazing on an hourglass or petite figure! Pair with nude wedge booties!

An Affordable Fave for Fall Weddings!

This dress was perfect for a fall wedding. The sheer portions of the dress are not too transparent, the color is beautiful, and the lace adds just enough detail to keep it interesting. Because the dress includes a mock neck and some transparent areas up top, it is important to size based on your proportions. I have a small/short torso, so although the 4R was more comfortable on bottom it was just too long up top for me to wear (sort of sagged due to the extra fabric, so some of my bra was showing through the mesh area). So I opted to size down and squeeze into the 2R. The hip area stretched out a tad from sitting & standing so overall I was very content to have worn the 2!! Wore with strappy gold shoes. Will 100% rent this dress again :)

Lovely unique and modest

Pack double sided tape! This was really a nice dress and received many compliments. Great length. The lace doesn't have much give. It was tighter in the ribs and looser in the chest a bit (though I'm not small on top) so I needed the tape to hide the top of the strapless bra, but no problem once I taped it. Clear straps DO show. The keyhole in the back is just high enough to cover it. Very flattering shape. I was very active (produced the event) and I can't say it is best for a high level of activity like that, but would still recommend.

Form fitting and beautiful - tons of compliments!

All night people were commenting on this dress! It was a great deep purple, almost maroon, for a Fall wedding. I have a smaller chest, 34B/C, and it fit great, anything larger may not be very comfortable. The length was great, mid-calf and I'm 5'9". I do have a long torso and found this dress ran a little short, but nothing that was to uncomfortable to wear. It's definitely form fitting, and it you're on the fence I would size up for sure, definitely not down. Occasionally I can fit a size 4 and there is no way I could have gotten it on.

Beautiful dress but no stretch at all, had to return both sizes

I loved this dress but was unable to wear it because I felt if I sat down it would have ripped even in the larger size so I had to return it

Tough cut up top.

I didn't end up wearing this dress. In the end it would be better for a work event versus a wedding but either way, the neckline was strangling me on both sizes - maybe it's just me. I really do love the look of it but it didn't work for me.

Not made for hourglass shapes

I rented this for a bridal shower. I am typically always a size 2- this dress was really tight around my neck (doesn't make a lot of sense to me) and hips. I am 5'9, 133 pounds, 32DD, hourglass shape. Believe that the size 4 would have worked for me, as long as the neck part was bigger as well!

I wore this dress to a wedding, and the color and shape were so perfect for Fall.

This dress was so beautiful in person. I really loved wearing it, but since I'm a little larger in my hips than my top I was right in between an 8 and a 10. I ended up wearing the 8 and being very careful with sitting and getting into the cab. This dress has ZERO stretch. If you have any sort of booty, order up a size instead of down for your back-up size. Got a ton of compliments though, so thanks RtR (and spanx!).

Great dress - many compliments!

As a petite woman at 5'1", this dress hit me a little below my ankles. It is form fitting and very flattering. Fit me like a glove. The color is a deeper maroon than the photo but still gorgeous. That being said, if you are bigger than a B cup or have wide hips or shoulders, I do recommend sizing up.

LOVE this dress

I wore this to a fall wedding in wine country and it was perfection! Compliments all night long and actually pretty comfortable. The neckline is a little tight but I got use to it. Not gonna lie, I wore spanx to make smooth any unwanted curves ;)

This dress is beautiful but it is really baggy in the stomach area and then is snug on your butt. The stomach area was the only issue with the dress. Overall super classy

fun fancy dress, with a bit of an awkward fit

I really enjoyed wearing it, and got many compliments! It fits very nicely when standing, but was tight in the butt when sitting (for both sizes that I received). The neck was also a little tight. I'm really happy I got it, but beware that it might be a little uncomfortable!

Didn't fit!

Thought this dress would be perfect for a winter wedding. It was a little too vintage for my husbands liking. Also, I risked it on sizing and it was just a tad too snug. I managed to get it zipped, but I doubt I would have been able to sit down! Neck also a tad tight. Just wasn't right for me. Color was lovely though!

Not for curvy girls!

Poor fit! I am typically a 10-12 dress size. I ordered this dress in a size 12, and I would have needed at least a 16 for it to fit! I have an hourglass figure and definitely have large hips, thighs, and a pronounced butt. This dress has absolutely no give. The color is exactly as pictured as well as the detailing of the dress. It just would not go over my butt. I tried putting it on over my head as well as stepping into it and it was impossible to get on. I even had my sister try it on. She is a size 10 usually, and even she could not get it past her hips. This dress seems as though it would be only for those that are very slim or have a straight figure with no curves. Really wish it would have fit as it was such a beautiful dress.

Great alternative to the little black dress

I felt beautiful and received many compliments! The color is gorgeous in person. It is not the most comfortable dress. Which is why I gave it 4 stars. There is no stretch to the fabric and the neckline is snug. It is not unbearable though. I would definitely still wear this dress again.

Perfect for cocktail party

A bit snug around the hips but I expected that with shape of dress. The neckline is fitted and takes a bit of getting used to but is not necessarily uncomfortable. Gorgeous dress overall

Fabulous dress, and enough coverage for a conservative event.

Great dress. The fit was awesome - I'm a straight and narrow body type and this dress made me look like I had curves. I agree with some of the other reviews that the high neck was a little tight, but it got more comfortable throughout the night. You do have to hike up the dress a little bit to sit down comfortably because the dress is tight and there is no stretch, I would not recommend renting if you will be seated the entire night. Best thing about this dress is you can wear a regular nude bra with it and you can't see the straps through the lace.

Beautiful but...

The fit was not super flattering on my pear shape. The hips fit nice but there was room in the waist which made it look loose. The neck was very tight as other reviews had mentioned. I ended up not wearing it since I had a backup dress that fit amazing. Lucky for me since the bridesmaids dresses were very similar looking!

Fit perfectly in all the right places

Very flattering cut and color. I wore this for a garden wedding in Kentucky. The cut at the bottom was such a nice touch, and it was a great color for Fall. Super comfortable, super easy to style. One negative (maybe a half star deduction) is that the I could feel the pulling in the neck area when I sat. The 2 was a perfect fit though, I didn't even bother trying on the 4.

Not right for my body type, unfortunately

This is a beautiful dress, hence the 4 stars... but it simply didn't fit me. I rented a 4 and a back-up 6, the 4 fit in the hip area, but was far too big on top. Made for a less curvy woman.

Great for a size 0.

I ended up not wearing this dress for my event. I usually wear a size 10 in dresses but the size 12 ended up fitting better. Beautiful dress but the neck was so extremely tight that I could not wear it. Couldn't even swallow it was so tight. This dress would be good for a size 0 person. Pretty disappointed I wasted $80. Thank goodness I had a back up dress that I had worn before.

I wanted to love this dress. Well, actually I did, but it didn't zip over my rib cage and therefore I couldn't wear it. I was really disappointed and had to go purchase a dress at a department store.

Great dress for a wedding, but make sure you size up!

This was sent as a back-up when my original choice wasn't available, and I wish I had read the reviews about sizing more carefully. It does run very small and has no stretch at all. I am normally a size 8-10, but the size 10 was too tight to sit or move around in comfortably. The sheer lace in the front also showed a lot of my strapless bra, but it would probably be okay on someone with a smaller bust. It's really a gorgeous dress and I wish I could have worn it!

Loved this dress! It is very flattering. Complete the look with a black or gold waist belt!

Only complain would be that the under lining slips down in the bust area, so I had to keep pulling it up. If I bought it I would just sew it to the lace better. Other than that I loved this look! I wore it for Thanksgiving Dinner and it was a big hit!

Amazing, amazing fit

Wore this dress to a wedding this weekend and could not have felt more sexy, beautiful, and sophisticated. Perfect for a winter wedding; I received many conpliments! The dress is true to size and is very figure flattering (a huge boost for me as I havent been as active/healthy in the last few months). I truly think this dress is a winner for any woman.

Na

This was a gorgeous dress, as usual, by S&W; however, the lining was very tight and I was really uncomfortable. I typically wear a 10 in this brand but had to go a size up bc I couldn't zip it. The 12 zipped and would have fit well otherwise (outer shell was a great size). This resulted in an odd twisting of the lace.
