Sexy, while still appropriate for formal functions

I'm 5'2 with a 32A bust and 24" waist, and the 4R size surprisingly fit me perfectly. Hugged my body in all the right places. It ran a little long, but not an issue that couldn't be solved by 3" heels and tape.

Absolutely Stunning!!!

I wore this dress to a wedding in Punta Cana and it was definitely an attention grabber!!! I originally decided on a different dress but there was a slight issue with my back up size not being available therefore I ending up choosing this one and I'm sooo glad I did!! I will say it is kind of confusing getting into it but after a few minutes I figured it out LOL. The overall fit was perfect. The dress was just a tad bit long (I'm 5'1) but with my heels it worked out.

Everyone was OBSESSED. Elegant but sexy.

Not sure what a 6R in UK fit is supposed to be, but I usually wear 0 or 2 in US dress sizes, and 6R fit like a glove. Backup with 8R was definitely too big. Perfect length w 3in heels and I am 5'6". I used boob tape to prevent slippage during dancing but not sure I needed to. Of note- I have a very narrow rib cage/thin arms and the dress accentuated this. Id recommend for similar body types.

Not the right dress for me

Sadly I couldn't wear this to a recent wedding. I loved it but it didn't fit properly in the top. It exposed way too much where it was inappropriate for the wedding I was attending. I also felt it was super tight around the neck where even had it worked out, it would have been uncomfortable. A fun gown, but not for me.

Fit was perfect. I am 5'8/9 and needed the long, with heels it's definitely needed, but doesn't make it super long. I would rent this dress again no question!

The dress was stunning. I wore it to a gala and received so many compliments.

The dress has deep cuts on the side. If you are busty than this dress may cause you issues. The fit was true to size. I'm 5'7 and wore 4 inch heels and the R worked out fine. There is a dramatic high slit in the front that I absolutely loved. But please keep that in mind when sitting.

Wow! Sexy and elegant dress

I ordered this for a wedding in SF that I couldn't make in the end due to bad weather in NYC, sadly. Instead, my boyfriend and I dressed up to watch the Oscars, just so I could wear this stunning dress! We both loved it! In hindsight, it may have been inappropriate for the wedding. It bares a lot of skin (full back, side boob, leg) and is perfectly form-fitted. I will definitely order this again, but for more of a party environment.

Comfortable and classy!

This was rented for a black tie birthday bash! It was so fun to have this dress which was so comfortable yet so classy. I got so many compliments. Great for dancing! The slit in the front and the open back were great and still kept the class because of the high neckline. I have a bigger chest but they fit in this size easily! This was so great!

Difficult Dress

I am 155 pounds and 5'9" and I wore the 10L woth high heels. I loved the dress, but it was a nightmare. The fabric is thick and the material will NOT stick to dress tape. Its also impossible to wear a bra, I even tried a backless/strapless sticky bra and it was visible. Unless you have perky breasts smaller than a C, DO NOT RENT THIS DRESS. I literally had to duct tape my breasts up against my sternum after 1.5 hours of attempting to make this dress work. Not for curvy women. Not for breast heavy women. I wod not recommend this.

Easy to get into!

Most dresses require complicated zippers that are nearly impossible to fasten yourself. This one allows you to simply slip on. It runs true to size and fits like a glove. My only complaint is that the seams in the bodice didn't lay flat. They curled up, making the dress have some strange creases, but it was only noticable to me. I'm 5'9" and the dress would have been too short for any really high heels.

Fantastic dress! Rented for 30th birthday!

I would definitely rent this dress again, it was stunning! Length was perfect and i loved the cutouts on the sides and the back! Putting it over your head can be a bit tricky, so if you have your hair done or anything just be mindful to make the neck opening a bit wider before putting it on!

I wore this dress for a Mardi Gras ball and it worked perfectly!

The fit was snug in all the right places. I am normally between a 4 and 6 and the 4 ended up working great. The dress was long enough for me to wear with 3 inch heels and I am about 5'6''. I am small chested and I believe that worked to my advantage with this dress as there was not too much holding the tatas in. The fabric was thick and comfortable and the slit in the front added the perfect amount of spice. I almost wish I could keep the dress forever!

Loved long, sleek black look. Accented with hot pink earrings.

Cute dress, pretty showy in the back, had to wear shawl in the church service. Wouldn't totally recommend if big busted, as you can't support the girls and you end up looking a little wide up top.

I got compliments and looks all night. I wore this to a black tie gala in NYC.

I usually wear a 8 or 10. The size runs slightly large. The size 6L ended up working for me. I could have also fit into the 4L if I wanted a snugger fit. I wore 4 inch heels and I am 5'6". The long length was perfect, as it hit just above the floor, but I think the regular length would have been fine too. Everyone was so helpful and I was so anxious about doing RTR. I loved it and will be using it again for sure. I have tons of events in the future and this makes so much sense. I also visited RTR flagship store in NYC and the staff was simply amazing. I was able to try the different designer styles so I have a better sense of my size now since I recently lost weight. My stylist, ANDREW, AMAZING!!! I felt so comfortable with him. Bless his patient soul!!! I was super anxious about this process as I am a perfectionist. I have to say I was so accommodated in every way. My experience was great!!!

Dapper and Sexy!

Absolutely love this dress. Another great rental. Because i am 4'11 it's hard to find floor length dresses that would accommodate my height. But with the open slit in the front, the extra length of the dress acted as a train. It was a bit intimating when I 1st tried on the dress to have my entire back exposed like that, but it only took a couple mins to adjust. My only grip about the dress is that the cross straps in the back keep riding up my back tightening the fabric around my neck creating a bit of discomfort. But besides that, I would rent this dress again!

Everyone LOVED this dress (NYE)!

I am 5'4" and 145lbs and typically fit between a US6 and US8. I went with the UK12/US8 since the neck was a bit constraining but both sizes fit great everywhere else. It definitely runs true to US size. I received so many compliments on this dress! I was a bit overdressed but it was a NYE hit!

Perfect mix of sexy and clasy

My first rental was a huge success. Im 5'5 thin/semi athletic build and wore the US 0 regular to a NYE black tie wedding. The fit was absolutely perfect. Does expose side boob - i used fashion tape to make myself feel secure and comfortable. Wore 3 inch heels and the dress fell at a perfect length. Paired it with the wesley faux fur jacket.. loved the look and got lots of compliments!

You need confidence if you are curvy and rent this

I loved it. It basically is backless and the high front slit (and cutouts) make this extremely sexy. I probably would of worn this over my other choice but my 32DD did not fit in the 4R (0 American size). So it was a tad big in waste hips in 6R (American 2).

Showstopper!

This dress is hot! Prepare for compliments all night if you rent this dress! I am 5'10 and with 3 1/2 heels on, it hit at a good length. I am not a busty gal but I had to tape the girls down and use fashion tape to make sure that everything stayed in place. Once I got everything locked in, I was good to go and it was a no fuss dress for the rest of the night! One thing to note: while you do step in to the bottom of the dress, the top must be pulled overhead. I had my hair styled but was able to keep it from getting messed up. Just somehjng to be aware of. I was very sad to send this dress back (and so was my husband)!

Runs small so I went with the 8R, I'm usually a 6 but it was too tight in the breast area. The length was perfect. I'm 5'4 and wore a 4 inch heal

Super comfy, classy, and the perfect amount of sexy!

This dress is stunning. It was unbelievably comfortable and stretchy ( perfect for drinking merriments and dining good food ;)) the only con is having to to re-adjust my side boob throughout the night but not a deal breaker. Paired with gorgeous earrings and red lipstick, and you're set!

Sexy and Sophisticated

I wore this dress to perform at a black tie event. I received many compliments! The dress is sexy and classy at the same time. I noticed other reviewers mentioned "side boob" and this is a little accurate. I'm only a size A so it wasn't as noticeable for me, but if you have a larger chest I could see you possibly tugging throughout the night. The other comment I have to agree on is that the neck can be a little tight when you sit down. But otherwise it was a very comfortable dress and I had no major issues being able to move wearing it. I ordered a regular because that's all that was available in my size, but standing at only 5'1" and wearing 3" heels I still wish I could have had the petite. Overall, I highly recommend this dress!

Perfect fit! I'm 5'5" and with 3 inch heels the dress was a perfect length. Its a little revealing around the side boob area but with some stick on cups and tape I was able to keep everything in place and feel comfortable.

Sexy but classy black-tie dress

I wore this to a black-tie wedding in September in NYC. At 5'4 with 3-inch heals, the regular length was perfect. The material is also thick enough that you don't need a bra (which is a good thing, because the only bra option would be stick-on cups). I loved this dress and felt so sexy in it, but it's still classy enough to wear to a wedding. Warning - If you have anything larger than a B cup, the top might not fit. It was perfect for me, but anything larger you might have a lot of side "spillage" or it may not even fit at all.

I wore this dress for a very fancy sweet 16, I am about 5'3" and 135lb with bigger hips and a small torso/chest. I was able to wear it without a bra but it shows a little bit of the side of your breast. It's heavy too like everyone says but worth it! I got so many compliments! Remember it's European sizing so don't be alarmed by the larger sizes.

Beautiful but not for me

I was really torn on this dress because it fit nice and looked great but it showed just a little too much side boob for my comfort level. I don't have a large chest but still it didn't cover my tan line so I decided not to wear it and go with something I felt comfortable in.

Beautiful gown!!!

I wore the gown to a black tie event, its beautiful but a bit more revealing that I'd expected (my event was more conservative then I expected anyways). I'm glad that I considered the previous reviews and ordered a size down (usually a size US8-12UK and ordered US6-UK10). Although I didn't mind, the top revealed a bit of side cleaveage and I'm small chested, so its something to consider. Beautiful gown nonethless!!!

This dress was absolutely amazing and worked well for the occasion !!

I was a bit worried about using this service since i'd read some bad reviews online but i decided to take the plunge and give it a go. First of all i received it promptly (next day delivery) . I loved the fact that they send you that back up size. It was well packaged upon arrival and clean. I loved the quality of the dress - it was just thick enough so you don't have those underwear lines printing through and the fit was just right . This dress shows quite a bit of side boobage and there is no way to wear a bra (mind you that i'm small around the bust so this may not be very comfortable on some one with a fuller bust). I loved the slit in the front to show off cute shoes ! My only issue was that the strap was becoming loose from the dress (the threading that was holding the strap to the front bodice) but customer service was excellent on their part ! They offered me a partial reimbursement and was very polite . The rep (Kayla T) even gave me some advice as to how to keep it intact with out damaging the fabric since i did not have time to do an exchange . This is a perfect way to wear a jaw dropping dress and make a memorable appearance without breaking the bank for a dress you may only wear once in your life . i would definitely recommend this business :)
