Stunning!

This dress was amazing! I received compliments all night long. It was great quality and fit beautifully. The regular length was really short and the long was really long! I wore the long with 5 inch heels. The 4 fit well. I may have been able to fit in a 2 actually. I was able to wear a strapless bra which was nice. I almost want to rent this same dress again for my next formal event in a few months.

Best dress hands down!!

This dress is a head turner. Literally everyone at the dinner told me the dress was AMAZING--even guys! People felt the fabric lol! I felt amazing and the fit is flattering. I did see one previous review that said beware if you have a "baby bump" and that is true....the waist is fitting and pronounces any bit of gut you have. Wore it with a Nubra strapless bra and it was just fine, the length was perfect in the long with a medium heel (I am 5'8") BUT!!! The zipper was seriously so hard to get up and down. My husband had to use pliers to pull the zipper up where the dress transitions fabric. He had to almost break me free to get it off and I think we slightly bent the zipper, but it was the zipper....no excess fabric stuck or anything. I would rent this dress again and recommend it to anyone...I ran into people days after the dinner and they were still talking about it!!

Service in store is great

I liked the dress elegant, classy however it was a bit tight around the armpit and was a bit painful by the end of the night. It also bunched around the belly making it look like I have a pouch there. I have mixed feelings about this dress.

Fantastic fit with beautiful details.

This dress is true to size and was very flattering. The back cut outs still allowed me to wear a strapless bra. The skirt is a gold/silver color.

Gorgeous and one of a kind dress!

This dress hugged in all the right places. It was just long enough for me with flats so anyone taller than my 6ft 1 would probably need to find another dress. Other than that it was stunning! So many compliments!

All the compliments I received while wearing this beautiful dress!!

Fits true to size. I am 5'7 and a long fit perfectly with heels. I wouldn't suggest it for anyone much taller it would be too short. It is stretchy and let's you move comfortably while also being form fitting. Multiple girls came up to me and complimented my dress. I looooved it!

The dress is stunning and fit great. The problem is the invisible zipper is almost impossible

The 4L and the 6L both fit fine. The fabric is thick and hangs well and I didn't need a bra. The night before the party, I tried on the 4L. It took a huge amount of work and effort to get the sipper past the "belt" part that separated the topping skirt. I had decided to with the 6l for the actual party thinking it would be easier to zip. My husband was putting soap on the sipper, trying to get the 6 zipped and Also zipped it and pulled it over my head messing up my updoo I had just paid for and makeup. Honestly, it was a nightmare. Most frustrating thing ever. Hubby was pulling so hard on the zipper to get it past the belt fabric that it tore up his hands and I had bruises from where his hand kept slipping off the zipper and hitting my in my back! Finally with soap and me laying in the bed fave first it zipped. Understand, it wasn't too small. Sizes were fine and the dress was totally comfortable it's a bad zipper!

Amazing dress!

This dress is stunning! I am 5'8 and the L fit perfectly. You may want to size up if you have a larger chest, it fits pretty snug (no bra at all needed). My only complaint is that the zipper was broken on both sizes and it was difficult to get on and off.

Great gown. Looked great on stage!

I am 5'9" and I wore a 2inch heel and it worked perfectly with this dress. I received a 8L which fit but it was snug around the hips and butt area so I used the 10L instead. I think it turned out great and people complimented me all night at the pageant I was in.

Best dress I've worn in my entire life!

This dress seriously has no words. It is so unbelievably gorgeous. Length was perfect for a tall girl like me. Fit was perfect. Wore it to an Indian wedding. The skirt part of the dress was a beautiful antique gold color. Just loved this dress so much!!

The zipper is a problem and the dress is getting a little "used" appearing.

Perfect length for my height. Love the silhouette!

Opted for this beauty when my original selection was not available. RTR was great. I ordered a size 10 and 12 but wore the 12. I'm 5'2 and weigh 160lbs. I'm a 36C and didn't need a bra. I don't see a provision to wear one since the back is cut out. The length was perfect. I wore this to a company Gala and was a hostess. I was able to wear flats until I was done seating our guests. Funny thing is I left on the flats all night and you can't tell in the photo. The mermaid silhouette was complementary. I must agree with others that the zipper was a bit difficult when the material changed but it was not a show stopper. Material did not stretch but it was very forgiving. Thanks again RTR for a magical evening.

Classic, vintage yet modern elegance

I rented this for my junior prom. I went into the RTR store in Chicago to try on dresses. I couldn't schedule a stylist appointment, and I was really disappointed with the in store customer service. The woman who was supposed to be taking care of us didn't help my friend and I at all, and when we asked her to pull certain dresses we couldn't find on the racks she'd roll our eyes at us as if she couldn't wait for us to be gone. We felt very uncomfortable and unwelcome in store. But as far as the dress goes, it was really comfortable and beautiful! The detailing on the bottom was gorgeous and I loved the back. The bottom was frayed from use, but nothing snipping of a few strings couldn't fix. The biggest issue was that a rip in the seam under my left arm was present when I received the dress. I pinned it in hopes on it not ripping any further. The zipper on this dress was nearly impossible and needed two people to get up. Also, if you're larger in the chest area, there's no support, but I got away with using a black strapless bra that you could barely notice since the back of the dress is black.

If you are between sizes, I recommend sizing up. Also, the zipper is very difficult to use, especially at the belt. You will likely need help. Great dress!

Received so many compliments on the dress the entire night. The dress was perfection.

Since it was my first time renting from RTR, I was worried about the size of the dress. I ordered 2 sizes, and ended up not needing the second size. I love the fact that you have that option. That is important in the process since you are not trying the dress on. I would definitely utilize RTR again for another event!

Fit like a glove!

I loved this dress! I received compliments all night long. I was concerned about the length but it was perfect for my 5'5" frame with 3" heels. I never tripped on the dress either. You can wear a strapless bra with this and it will now show. The neckline didn't bother me and I never felt constricted in the dress. I was able to eat and dance all night!

Super comfortable and absolutely stunning !

This fit true to size for me. Long was perfect length for small heel or flats, I'm 5'9. Gorgeous dress, constant compliments I've never had so many people compliment an outfit. The skirt is thick so if you'll be somewhere warm it may be too hot. Perfect for the winter black tie event we went to. First RTR experience and couldn't be more happy about it.

This dress is gorgeous. I thought the skirt was ivory, but it's a pewter in person.

Like other commenters have said, this dress is snug in the hips. Normally I would choose a size 10, but I went up because of the hips comment and I was glad. You could wear a black low back halter bra with this dress; some commenters said you had to go bra-less, but my shaper with built in bra was fine.

This dress is very classy and completely complimented my style! I kept getting compliments all night and it was fun to dance in! It's stretchy so it leaves plenty of room to eat and move around. I ordered both 12R and 10R and I wore 10R with no doubt about the fit! I wore 5in heels and fit gloriously! Prom 2016 was a success!

Great shape and quality

I love love this dress. The 14 was true to size and was flattering. The fit is close to the body, but very modest. I was also happy that I didn't need to wear very high heels for the dress to not touch the floor. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because the zipper is terribly difficult to zip where the two fabrics meet at the middle. I normally expect this from dresses, but this was extraordinarily difficult. The dress fit like a glove, but I needed two people to actually zip it up due to this difficulty. If you don't have a buddy to zip you up, pass on this dress.

Old Hollywood Glamour!!!

This dress was everything I had hoped it would be. It hugged my curves but was still very comfortable to sit and dance in. I am only 5'6" and the regular length didn't sweep the floor in bare feet. I wish it had as I was wearing 4" heels. It didn't bother me too much that my shoes were visible because they matched the dress but still. The 14W wasn't offered in long or I would have ordered it. I got compliments all night on the dress and would order it again. However... The zipper is AWFUL. I knew this going in from other reviews but chanced it anyway. You definitely need another person zipping it up. I rubbed a little coconut oil on the zipper and that helped a bit, but what really helped was stepping into the dress and then pulling the skirt and bodice up so it wasn't right against the body. The zipper is easier to work upward that way. Then, I slipped my arms in and had the zipper done the rest of the way. The neck band is a little tricky as well but not as bad as the belt band. The lining fell past the skirt but I pinned it up so that was an easy fix. The skirt is antique silver/pewter. They really should update the website picture. The packaging was just ok this shipment. I could barely fit both dresses in the return envelope and it wouldn't fit in a drop box so I had to find a drop off center. Points off for that and the zipper. My last shipment came in a very nice garment bag. This one came in a box. Consistency would be key here. I didn't find it to run big or small, but I am in between sizes so I'm not the best judge for that. Wearing a halter bra is fine. No visible straps. I don't understand the reviewers who claim you need to go braless in this dress. All in all its a STUNNING dress. RTR...be consistent with your packaging and I'll be a customer for life. A couture gown should be shipped in a garment bag, not dry cleaning bags in a box.

Stunning!

Beautiful gown. I rented this when my original gown became unavailable and lucked out! Great fit for lots of body types. My only con is that the zipper was really tricky. I had trouble getting it up and down and not because it was a tight fit- it's just finicky. Someone else at the event wore the same dress too! I didn't mind, it just meant it was a really great dress!

My back up that hit a home run

I loved this dress. Received many compliments and felt comfortable. The biggest challenge was the zipper. As indicated in prior reviews, it's extremely tough to zip. Tip: bend over to get the proper angle to get the zipper past the tough point. Overall, a beautiful gown and I will rent again. RTR also handled a last minute change in my order because my original wasn't available. They reached out, gave me some options and that is how this dress became my home run vs. my backup.

Beautiful Gown

This gown did not disappoint! I wore this designer to the same event last year, so I knew I couldn't go wrong wearing one again. I'm so attracted to how Impeccably made Theia gowns are and the incredible attention to detail - the fabric is so luxurious. I promise, It translates much better in person (but still photographs nicely.) In regards to fit, I probably should have ordered the 2L. I'm 5'6 about 118 lbs. Reading the other reviews I thought I'd be safe with a 3 inch heel but it was showing my toes and it's not really how I envisioned the look. I ended up wearing a shorter heel and sizing up to the 4R which gave a smidge more length but I would have preferred to have gone with the 2. No worries. Still felt beautiful and fit great! I was able to wear a strapless under garment. I very much recommend this gown! I hope the next person who rents it has a magical evening too. <3

Quick, streamlined and beautiful!

I ordered 2 dresses for the price of one with my first time rental promo. What a perfect first experience since I wasn't really certain how a formal gown would fit my larger post 2-kid body. I received a 12R and a 14R for a pre-Thanksgiving FL wedding and reception. Both dresses fit great and were comfortable for a night of dancing and fun! The only negative feedback I had was that due to wear, the zippers were impossible. I couldn't zip up the dresses myself and ended up having to throw a sweater over the dress to make it to the wedding on time so that my husband could zip me up. That's why you see that I wore both sizes. The 14 was big enough that I was able to zip the dress on the side of my body then twist the dress into position where the zipper was in the back where it belonged. I switched dresses for the reception and the smaller one made me feel beautiful with the help of my husband for the zipper. My only regret is that I never had anyone take a picture of the dress full length (which is why you see the seated selfie, it was the only way I could get a picture of that waistline and below...my husband was in the wedding party, so I was alone more of the day/evening). It fit perfect with heels and the little beaded bow was such a great embellishment.

So comfortable!

The dress was so comfortable for the whole night! This was a back up dress since the size I needed in my original dress was unavailable last minute. I got the 14 since the original dress I was getting was still coming in a 12. But this dress still fit with out looking big since it was stretchy. She I'm typically border line size tall. I was wearing 3 in shoes in the picture and the dress still touched the floor. I probably could have gotten away with a regular length since I prefer shorter heels or flats.
