This dress was awesome! I wore it to an evening wedding and received tons of compliments. I ordered the 2 and the 4 and the 4 fit perfectly--I didn't even try on the 2. What's not mentioned in the description is that the dress does have some stretch in it so even if you aren't narrow in the hips, you can work with your true size and it should fit.

Beautiful, beautiful dress. It's a little darker (more of a sandstone color) in person. The fabric is nice and heavy, great for winter events. I wore it to my own small December wedding and it was perfect. It does have some give in the hips and shoulders, but none in the waist. The size 2 fit me like a glove, but I would recommend laying off large meals while wearing it.

Wore this dress to a wedding and it was perfect! I received a ton of compliments! A few notes though, it is darker than the picture. Also, if you have a smaller bust, like myself you may want to go a size down because the top was big on me (32C). Definitely recommend this dress!!

I dont think ive ever tried on a dress soooo classy and so gorgeous! SO WORTH THE MONEY. the color is a sandstone type color; and the prints are gold. So classy and VERYYYY sexy. It fit PERFECTTTT on me. im usually a size 2, and a size 2 fit PERFECT. its very tight around the torso, which looks amazing if you have curves around the waist. Its by far MY FAVORITEEEE dress EVER. Had soooo many compliments, and everyone was deff starring at me at the weddinggg the dress was just breath-taking.DEFF recommend this !

*Too Small* Not Enough Stretch

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Definately too small, not a stretchy fabric at all. It was too tight from the chest area. Its better for petite girls.

Don't forget the zipper goes in the front! I was in a rush and was trying to figure out why it didn't look right as I was putting it on. It hugs the curves really well without being too huggy. Loved this dress!

Wanted so badly to love it, just couldn't

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size

I wanted to love this dress so badly, but just couldn't. The fit was perfect and the material was very high quality. It's darker than it looks in the picture, and I think that had a lot to do with my dislike. I was expecting a pretty ivory/champagne color, but it was more brown. The dark color combined with the pattern made me feel like I was wearing a curtain. Maybe it's beautiful on someone else, but I just couldn't wear it.

Beautiful; for medium busts

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Date
I felt like this dress had control top built into it. It's tight, but not uncomfortable. I don't have a large bust and it looked so wrong on me. Definitely for a medium sized bust.

Pretty lace but weird fit

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The top was loose, but it was tight across the hips. Granted -- I am a pear. But it still was a stranger shape than other dresses from RTR. It also is more of a beige color, not the ivory that is shown. It did not fit me well.

Sexy and sophisticated

Loved the way I felt in this dress. Wore it to an employee's wedding and I felt so stylish and classy. Dress did not ride up which is always a concern of mine with fitted dresses. I absolutely loved this dress. Will rent again!

Very flattering dress that I considered buying. It was ordered for a wedding but it made me look a little too busty for the occasion.

I loved this dress. The material just oozes "expensive", and it is such a unique piece. It fit as expected, and I was comfortable all night long.
