Perfect dress- picture doesn't do it justice!

The advertising picture does not do this dress justice. The fabric is textured (jacquard) and color is so beautiful and vibrant, perfect for the Fall. This is a dress I would purchase. Received many compliments!

Pretty and unique

This was my first pick but went with my back up. This one was was a bit too big on me in the bust area which doesn't work with the plunging nature of the dress. Would also probably needed a long vs. regular length.

Perfect dress

The fit was perfect...no bra needed! And the dress has pockets which is always a plus. I was looking for something sexy but still appropriate for a family wedding and this was the perfect balance. I got complimented all night and would absolutely rent it again!

This dress is a 10/10! I always worry ahout not being able to wear a bra (my girls arent the perkiest!) but the dress supported me well. My husband was counting the compliments I got but lost track. Best part: POCKETS!!

Beautiful on the hanger

This was my preferred gown. I got it in 10L and 12L and they were both too large. The material was soft and detail added a lovely shimmer. Fortunately, I loved the "backup" gown I rented.

So flattering, classy, and sexy.

I was attending a gala -- they had a size 4 that was the perfect match for me. I ordered to the RTR store in NYC so I could try it before that night's gala. I felt drop dead gorgeous trying it in on because it fits you in all the right places. The zipper got stuck and they had to cut it off me, but the ladies at the RTR store saw how my face completely fell and helped me into the 6L. Your actual dress size will work PERFECTLY, but if it's unavailable, one size up will work fine. I got compliments all night. If you need to choose a dress, this will be a show stopper.

This dress made me feel so classy!

Can I buy this dress? It was amazing! If your hesitating...dont! I normally wear a size 12 but the 10 fit like a glove. I normally wear a C/D bra and it was a good fit in that area. No bra is needed for this dress since its so low cut. Love love love this dress!

LOVED THIS DRESS!!

I absolutely loved this dress!!! I rented it for a black tie wedding during NYE weekend. It was the perfect amount of sophisticated and flirty. The color is on point for this winter season and the pattern is beautiful. The pockets are of course a win all the way around. The fit is definitely true to size or even a smidge big. The fabric was thick enough that I had no issue with not wearing a bra (I'm a 34DD). I was trule comfortable all night long and will definitely rebt this dress again the first chance I get!

What a great dress

This dress was my second choice for an Alice in Wonderland themed ball. My first choice was unavailable, so I went with this one instead. I'm 5'7" and about 185 lbs and a runner with curves. The dress was perfect. I didnt wear a bra but did use some double sided tape. The 14 fit perfectly. And RTR customer service was amazing, so I'll be back.

Pockets rule!!

This dress has two pockets. This was awesome!! The dress is gorgeous. It is a fairly heavy fabric. The dress is sexy but not too revealing. I wore breast petals and notnal underwear. Such a comfortable and easy formal dress!! Both the 12 and the 14 fit me. The 14 gave me slightly more room so i chose that since i was sitting much of the night.

Love love love this dress!

I ordered the 14L and while it was a little long on my 5'4" self, i did wear flats. With heels it would have been perfect! I got so many compliments on it too! It showcased my figure while also being classy. Would 100% recommend. Obviously sticky boobs are the only option in terms of wearing a bea but the dress is really thick so i opted to go braless.

Amazing details + POCKETS=obsessed

This dress has so many incredible detail, I was blown away! The illusion neckline is absolutely stunning, the jaquard fabric looks even more gorgeous in person than online! Best of all? This dress has POCKETS which is a total gamechanger at a formal event... you can carry lipstick & your phone without the hassle of hauling your clutch on the dance floor!

Elegant, classy and comfortable

I felt very beautiful and comfortable in this dress. I am 5'7" and top heavy (34DDD). I chose to not wear a bra and had not one problem all night. The dress I wore was a 8L, I had to lift it to walk so maybe I could've ordered a 8R.

Perfect dress

I got so many compliments on this dress. It fit perfectly, and the neckline left enough to the imagination so as not to be too risqué. I am 5'3" and wore heels that were about 1.75" tall, and the regular length was perfect.

Class + Sass

I'm 5'5 165 and 36C. I'm usually somewhere between an 8 and 10. This dress fit me perfectly in the bust and waist. I wore a 8R and it was tight enough that I didn't have to wear a bra and worry about them "dislodging". I wore a plunge bra anyways and it was really more of a pain than anything. The fabric is so thick that I didn't have to worry about getting too cold..... for various reasons. Length was almost too short. I wore 3" heels and it was perfect. Any taller and this would have been a no go. Pro: fitted in waist and bust, thick fabric, meshing is so classy. Con: the liner was ripped at the bottom. (I'm sure it's something they will fix) If you are too busty this dress may reveal more cleavage than your comfortable with, length was barely there with 3" heels. Regardless, I wore this dress to a gala and then out dancing. I had enough room that I felt like I could easily dance and not worry about ripping.

Perfect for Fall Black Tie Event

The material is thick, which made it perfect for an outdoor black tie ceremony on a cool evening in November. For me (34B), the bust was a little loose, but the mesh made sure everything stayed in place and there were no wardrobe malfunctions on the dance floor. I wore the 6, but I will say my backup size was an 8, and it did seem to be significantly longer. This was my first RTR and I am so happy with the way it turned out. I felt confident and elegant.

Felt like a movie star!!

This dress is amazing and unforgettable. I got so many compliments and it fit like a glove. I suggest ordering a size smaller for your extra size. I'm usually a 4 (which would have fit fine with a tiny bit of extra room) but the 2 fit better! I also suggest getting the Long if you are 5'7 or taller. I'm so glad I got the Long and it was the perfect length with a heel. The top is gorgeous but may be a bit tricky if you have a large chest. I'm small chested and wore sticky bra and some tape but I could have done nothing and it would have fit fine! Rent this dress for a formal occasion...so comfy and with pockets too!

Classy & Beautiful for Symphony Ball

I absolutely LOVED this dress! As a pear shape, dress shopping is generally an absolute nightmare for me, but this gorgeous gown was perfect for my body type. I found it does run a bit large, as I'm usually a 10L but wore the 8L, as the 10 was too loose in the bust (also a classic pear shape problem). The fabric is heavy, perfect for a winter event, so you don't need a bra. Don't need Spanx, and it even has pockets! If you are looking for a gown where you'll stand out all night, this is it. I highly recommend renting this beauty!

Lots of compliments, very flattering, absolutely stunning gown

I am 5'1".....needed 5 inch heels for this gown to hit the floor perfectly...it was worth it though. Obviously you cannot wear a bra...but the top fits just snug enough to hold the girls in place.

Flattering and show stopping all at once!

I rented this dress for a Christmas gala. It was a hit! So many compliments and so very comfortable. I usually wear a 12 due to my bust but the 12 in this dress was suffocating. The 14 provided more room but was a touch too long in the torso. Short people problems? I loved it so much I made this my Christmas card. I would definitely rent again.

Perfect holiday gown!

This dress was perfect! The pockets were a definite bonus. The material was heavy so very nice for a December party. The regular length was long but i was able to shorten it about 2 inches with hem tape so it brushed the floor with my 4 inch heels. Received many compliments all evening.

This dress is gorgeous. The color is stunning the pockets are awesome. But it really ran so big on me...I just couldn't do it. It was large in the chest even with a low push up bra. The fabric is just beautiful.
