PERFECT fit

I didn't end up wearing this dress because another one was more my style, but it was perfectly TTS. I definitely think it would be the best fit for a narrow, straight frame. The 2L came right above the floor in the front and grazed the floor in the back, I'm 5'11. Very flattering cut and the cut outs are flirty but not too revealing. Gorgeous dress!

are the cut outs on both sides of the dress?

Not as stretchy as you'd think

Very tight across hips, not as much stretch as expected

Simple and elegant

Really flattering. Easy to wear. Flows away from hips a bit which looked great!

Perfect for small chested women!

I am 5'8" 125lbs. I basically have zero chest so I generally have a hard time with gowns because they will fit my hips but bag out in the chest. This dress fit me SO well. The long was perfect with 3 inch heels. If you're tall and want to wear heels, get the long. I LOVED the cutouts on the side. I paired it with a flashy necklace to spice it up and got so many compliments.

Hi, do you mind me asking if your friend got the dress from RTR too? Thanks:)

Great for black tie wedding

Fit so comfortably (though a little long; I'm only 5'3" though) and the side panels keep it fun. Highly recommend!

Great for black tie wedding

I wore this to a black tie wedding and it was perfect. I am busty (30DDD) and was able to wear this without a bra. I am 5'9 and could not wear high heels in the long- it was just long enough to skim the floor in kitten heels.

Wore to awards event

Was very tight in the bust area, had some boning in the sides by the cut outs that made it tight. Very nice dress though, I'd rent it again.

Stunning gown

Absolutely loved this dress! It's very flattering and elegant. The side detail made it unique. I have a fuller hips and butt and it fit great. Would definitely rent this again maybe in red.

Elegant with a trendy twist

I can't tell you how much I love the fit of this dress! It hugs every curve in the most flattering way. The only con was that the chest in my opinion runs small. I had to tug and pull most of the night, because i was worried it was too revealing. Other than that it was one of my favorite rentals! It is longer. I'm almost 5'4" and wore 3.75" heel and it was still tad bit long.

Perfect for black tie event!

First RTR experience was a success! This dress was perfect for my black tie event. Fits true to size. With the tall length I was able to wear heels.

Hot!

This dress made me feel like a bombshell! I loved the cutouts on the side. I ordered last minute so ended up with 10L as my main size and I'm thankful the regular wasn't available. I'm 5'6" and with 4" heels this dress was just to the floor (no tripping). I tried on the 12R, other than being too large, the length was too short (entire lower ankles and feet showed).

Simple but elegant

This dress fit great everywhere! I'm a size 26 jean and small top, but am very busty. The 6 fit me very well and was flattering on. I received lots of compliments. Perfect for a black tie wedding :)

Classic with a twist

I wore this dress for a fundraising gala, and it ended up being the perfect mix of classic style with a sexy twist. The top was a little loose, but the material had good stretch so it was comfortable to dance, sit and stand in all night long.

I had to find a replacement and that dress worked fine. Its unfortunate I couldn't wear the dress.

This dress runs really tight and I was unable to wear it. Unfortunately the largest size is 16 and I couldn't get a size bigger.

This dress fit like a glove!! everyone LOVED it

The dress has a wire side that keeps it up and supportive, the neck line is a little lower than it looks in the picture. Zips super easily, and is very soft!

Loved this dress!! Lots of compliments

This dress was just what I was looking for! The body of the dress is a lot tighter than I expected it to be, so getting my normal size and one size up helped! The 4R would have worked, but needed the size up for my cleavage. The straps are not adjustable. I am short and this dress was *almost* the perfect length for me, could have used an inch or two off the bottom, but high heels helped with this. I would definitely rent this again!

Rented this dress for a Gala. Received many compliments!

I'm 5'8" and wore 3 inch heels. I ordered the long length and it was perfect. Didn't need to wear a bra with dress. Runs true to size.

We were skeptical about renting a dress online without trying it on first but this dress plus the backup were the perfect fit.

Playful and classy

I needed this dress for the Division Ball and am so glad I chose it. I live in HI and it's very hot even in the evenings so I went with the back up size to allow for a more comfortable feel. It hugged my ribs but did not hug anywhere else. It flattered my backside and the extra inches were not needed. I wore flats as my date was shorter than I was. If I had worn heels, it may have been the perfect length. I am 5'9" and 185lbs.

I love this dress!

I'm 5'7", 36C and 140 pounds, and this dress hugged every curve! I wore 2.5 inch heels and the dress was the perfect length for my height. Super comfortable too!

Classic black dress with a little revealing detail

This dress fit well but was very long even with heels which was annoying.

What an amazing find!

Especially for the price! Rented this for a black tie optional event and I absolutely loved it. And I got so many compliments! I am usually a size 8-10 and I ordered a 10L and 12L. The 10L fit perfect! I would definitely suggest getting a Long size if you’re over 5’6 and wearing heals. I am 5’8 and I wore short wedges, and if I wore taller shoes it would’ve been too short. Didn’t have to wear a bra and felt super supported. Would rent again in a heartbeat!!

Great dress for a black tie wedding

The fit was perfect. The dress was very comfortable and easy to wear. The cut out on this side is enough to show a little skin but not too much. Loved this dress!!

I loved how 'subtle elegant' this gown is...

The fit was perfect, especially for someone like myself who has a smaller bust. The detail on the side was adorable and was perfectly subtle. The only con to the dress is that it was very long, even with 4" heels. I was unable to, due to time constraints, but I would recommend using safety pins or dress tape to temporarily alter the dress to accommodate a shorter height (5'4", for instance).
