Red carpet moment.
You will feel like a million bucks in this dress. I wore it to a formal affair and got compliments all night. It was a red dress themed ball and I felt like my dress stood out from 100 others. It was unlike any other dress there. I'm normally a 4 and wore the 4 but it was slightly tight in my waist (that's just me though after 2 kids and now over 40). I'm 5'4 and had to buy the highest heels I could find and it still dragged on the floor a bit. The pockets are a MAJOR win and helped me keep the dress "held up" a bit more when I walked. You will love this dress.

Formal with pockets!
Got compliments all nights. Pockets were a nice thought! They are deep and I had plenty of room to keep my phone, lipstick, and extra bobby pins. It does not stench, so near the end of the night my ribs and stomach were starting to feel constricted. I'm 5'4" and wore s 3.5" heel = perfect length! P.s. You can wear a strapless bra!!

ELEGANCE in it's truest form! Perfect for a very formal event!
This dress is absolutely GORGEOUS!!!! The ONLY issue; IF you're 160 ish pounds and wear a 36 C bra and 5'5 height; like me, you'll need a bigger size dress, which is why I opted for 12R. I would normally wear a 10R but the top was very fitted (I've gained a few pounds and it's all gone to my upper back so it wasn't flattering to see my back bulging out of the size 10R dress) but hopefully you don't have that problem. However, the 10R was not unbearable, but I didnt feel I had extra room on the top to work with. So, if you choose this gown make sure to select two sizes, preferably 10R and 12R. All in all, this gown is everything and more! All you need is a bracelet and a pair of long earnings, nice smokey eye with nude lip and you're good to go. I love that it's also floor length so you can literally wear any low heel shoe!

Beautiful Gown
It's small on the top so if I had a large chest it would not fit. I am a small top medium body so I knew this would fit my body type well. It's very warm so better suited for winter or colder temperatures. It's very long as well so wear tall heels.

Beautiful dress. One of a kind. Rented for my daughters prom.
Bust was little big and needed to be pinned. Rest of dress fit wonderfully. Pockets were great for cell phone and other needed items. She's 5'5" and 120lbs. Wore size 0R

So many compliments!!!!
The side zipper was a little tough to get up, even tho there was more than enough room in the bodice. But with help, I got it zipped!! It was comfy, had pockets, and the colors were so pretty!!! I felt amazing in this dress. And the regular length hit the floor perfectly for me.

The dress was perfect for the occasion!
This dress was absolutely stunning and I received compliments all night. It was so spectacular and classy and I was definitely one of the best dressed at the wedding. I was nervous about ordering and the dress coming one day before I needed it, and it was my first time renting from RTR. Thankfully everything worked out. I was panicking because the backup size I got was not the same dress! On top of that I was not made aware of that until I opened the box. So obviously I freaked out, but fortunately my original size fit perfectly. I would definitely recommend this dress to anyone.

This dress was absolutely jaw dropping on stage. I hated to send it back!
The dress does definitely run small. I'm usually a 2L and the 4L was snug. I did rent both sizes, but in addition to the 2L being very tight, the zipper was completely impossible to zip up due to the way the fabric bunches in that area. The 4L zipper was challenging, but OK once I figured out the trick to it. I wore this dress, and one other from RTR, for my new jazz show featuring the music and clubs of the 1930s and 40s. It was gorgeous on stage, very flattering, and still allowed me to breathe correctly, which some formal gowns do not. I received more compliments than I could count. I would recommend only going with a long size if you are over 5'8". I'm 5'8" and even in three-inch heels, it dragged the floor. It wasn't an issue, but was definitely on the long side.

Black tie wedding
Beautiful dress with nice taffeta fabric. I am the epitome of a pear so I tend to have narrower proportions on top. I personally thought the top part of the dress could have been a tad more fitted, but that could have been remedied by wearing a padded bra.

I rented this dress for a Christmas photo shoot. I was looking for something elegant and holiday.
The 10 fit but was difficult to zip. The bust was a tad snug. The 12 zipped easily and gave me a bit more wiggle room, but there was a SLIGHT gap in the top where it was sleeveless, however, nothing was saggy or showing, so it probably fit the best. I loved the fact that it had pockets. Too bad that I didn't get to wear it in public, just for the photo shoot.

Show Stopper.
My originally requested size was unable to ship, and the 4R was my larger, backup size - it fit snuggly, but great! I don't think I would have been able to zip the 2R. The pattern looks a little flat/repetitive in the photos, but it's much more interesting in person. The length was perfect with high heels. I wore this to a black tie fundraiser where I had to go up on stage and had no issue walking around (or up and down the stairs). Received compliments ALL night and it photographed great!

I am 5'3 - the dress was a little long - I wore with kitten heals so my feet wouldn't hurt. It I made it work. The zipper gave me a little trouble just have someone help get it zipped. I love the pocket feature. The dress was super comfortable.

I felt like a million bucks!
I felt like a million bucks in this dress. I am 5'4" and usually wear a size 8. The 8R fit well and I wore 3" heels. The dress was about 3/4" too long, so at certain points while walking, I needed to pick up the front in order not to trip. The top and waist fit well and I had no problems getting it on and off. My husband did help me zip it up. I had many compliments about the dress from friends and strangers at the party.

I rented this for the 2017 Surface Warrior Ball.
I am a typical 10 but when I tried the 10 it would not zip over my rib cage (I have a large rib cage but haven't had a problem with dresses in the past). I tried the 12 and had difficult zipping it because if a sticky zipper but once I got it over my rib cage it fit great. I loved that I could wear my own strapless bra under it and added a strapless body smoother underneath to help it flow a little better. It was a little long but I wore flats, not heels and I didn't mind the length.

Gorgeous gown - with pockets!!
Rented this for a black tie wedding and received quite a few compliments! The print adds interest without being too busy, and the red/black colors were easy to accessorize and flattering for my complexion (I'm Asian). Bonus - this gown has pockets, into which I stuffed my speech for the reception along with my phone (of course) for easy photo-taking access. Fit: I do carry a lot of extra weight in my tummy (sigh), so the fit was a bit tight in the waist, but overall, the 12 fit me quite well and the full skirt helped camouflage that problem area a bit. Length: I'm on the shorter side (5'4"), and if I owned this gown, I would probably have it taken up an inch or two, but I didn't find it to be TOO long even so. I started in 1.5-2 inch heels and they caught on the hem a few times, because heels. Later in the evening, I switched to flats, and was just mindful of the extra length as I danced - but didn't have too much of an issue.

A standout dress for a special performance!
The style was flattering and fit a larger bust and high waist well. The length was perfect for a 5'3" young woman wearing heels. The event was a performance at a glamorous concert venue.

The 12L fit get except for around the arms. My arms are big. It was a little tight, but that was it. This dress was perfect for my event. Oh, the pockets!!! The pockets were on point for this dress. I could keep up with my phone & lipgloss.

Perfect silhouette and color!
This dress was perfect for my work's Centennial Gala at the Beverly Hilton in LA. I work for the Red Cross so it's always a major thing to find a perfect and unique red dress for this formal event. This dress was perfect, so flattering in the silhouette and comfortable to wear all night long. I did have to wear my backup larger size because as a busty lady, the top on my regular size ran too tight. The backup size was also a long size, and so luckily I had packed some very tall shoes to pair with it. They were 4.5 inches with a platform and the dress just skimmed the ground perfect. I'm still dreaming about wearing this again and celebrating my amazing organization!

I don't get this dressed up very often. I loved that feeling.
Beautiful. Felt modern and fun and different than all the black dresses at the event. I'm 5'8, so I got the Long, but it dragged on the floor in 2" heels. You really need 4" heels. Really liked it though.

Zipper was impossible. NOT FOR WOMEN WITH BOOBS.
This fit perfectly from the waist down, but the zipper was crazy hard to work and ultimately I just couldn't get it zipped over my large chest, so it had to be replaced.

Worn to a black tie outdoor wedding!!
Gorgeous dress WITH POCKETS!! I received plenty of compliments, was able to move and dance in it. I'm 5'3 and wore 4 inch heels. I fluctuate between a size 2 and 4 and the 2R fit perfectly. The zipper did stick and it did take a little work to get it up. I ended up not wearing a bra because I thought that was the reason why the zipper wasn't going up; the zipper was just stuck at the waist seam. Would have loved to have kept the dress!!

Absolutely PERFECT!
I rented this for a military ball, and I got SO many compliments! I rented a 4R (and 6R as backup), and the 4 fit perfectly! I'm on the shorter side, but with heels I had no problems. This dress was so elegant and comfortable. It's lined and has hidden pockets! It has enough support that I didn't need a bra, which says a lot because I don't have a small chest. I wish I could've kept it!

This dress is true to size and super comfortable.
I considered ordering a size larger in this dress for my formal dinner-dance, but this dress doesn't fit like ordinary bridesmaids' dresses, for example. It is true to size. At 5'4" I wouldn't opted for a higher heel had I tried the dress on sooner because it was a tad too long. I made it work though.

It was amazing!
It was such a nice fit and lined enough that I didn't need to wear a bra, and was very comfy. The photos don't do the print justice, it was so classy yet bold. Plus it had pockets! It was a tad long but I had on rather high heels so it balanced out. I'm 5'1 105lbs. But it was so flattering I could've eaten all night at a buffet and you would have never known because of the way it is cut.

Classic drama with a fashionable edge
Loved this dress and received so many compliments. Size according to your bust/ribs. It's not fitted through the waist and there's a full skirt with pockets to hide any issues in the hips. I'm 5'4 and wore fairly high heels (3-4 inches), but it was still an inch too long. Tried to find heels with a platform to give me a boost, but no dice. Dress was so fabulous, I dealt with it and just took my time walking around during the event. The 4S would have been too short.
