Looked and felt great!
I wore this dress for a military ball and it was a great choice! We are currently in Hawaii so I wanted to wear a dress that was more than the ho-hum black with no personality, or looked like a prom dress. I received many compliments on myself and the dress. I would definitely recommend this gown! Fit: After reading reviews, I chose to order size 16 with a backup size of 18. I tried both on and was able to wear both. However, I felt the 16 was a little snug in the rib cage for me so I wore the 18 to the event. I was a little worried about wearing a strapless gown, but had no issues with anything slipping/falling down. To address my worry, I chose to wear a strapless bra as it added just enough bulk for my comfort. To be honest, I could've worn this gown without a bra (there's a built-in bra) and been fine. The length was just right, skimming the ground as I stood. I could've worn sneakers and no one would've known! I had zero issues with rubbing under my arms. This gown was great at hiding my fluffiness and I didn't feel the need to wear any special slimming products (perfect!). The fabric appeared to be heavy but I found it to be comfortable in weight for a long night. I was able to squat, sit, walk, and dance in this gown without problems all night long.

Absolutely Stunning
I wore this dress three weeks after having a baby. I thought for sure it wouldn't fit since there wasn't a lot of stretch but it fit amazingly well and was so comfortable. I loved the pockets and the color is beautiful. I'm a 38DD and the top was big but it allowed for better coverage. I received compliments all night and people were shocked that I had just had a baby. Super flattering dress. I

The dress was simple, elegant and stunning. I felt like a movie star all night long!
I ordered a 6R but wound up wearing the 8R because the 6 was a little short. The dress was very comfortable. The boning was supportive enough that I didn't need to wear a bra yet I still felt secure and not worried about "the girls".

This dress was gorgeous. I cannot even count the compliments I received.
It was loose throughout the bodice, but not too loose to wear, I just wish it was about a half size smaller for me. I am pretty full in the chest so I picked a women's size - that might has been my mistake I still wore it and loved it!

Beautiful for a black tie wedding!
I liked this dress! The dress fit nicely and just needed some Hollywood tape on top to keep the dress in place. The bottom of the dress is more champagne than white in the photo shown by the model. I'm 5'4'', and I wore 2'' heels so the dress did not drag. I felt pretty and received a lot of compliments-stunning dress and would recommend to other girls!

The fit was fantastic! Like a glove, the material is thick perfect for winter. The fabric is a silver and black with iridescent shine as well, like a snowflake colors change as light bounces off it, so so gorgeous! Felt just as beautiful in my wedding dress as this gown. First RTR definitely not the last!

Wore this to an Inaugural Ball--tons of compliments, amazing fit, incredibly comfortable!
I generally wear anywhere from a 0 to a 6 depending on the cut and fit of a dress. The 4R fit like a glove! The bodice does rest a little lower than I'm used to but stayed up all night without any issues...the boning in the bodice gives a good amount of support. The pockets are great and the fabric is heavy enough to make this perfect for a winter event!

Comfy, flattering stunner
I wore this to a gala event and would totally rent it again. The dress is gorgeous and I got a ton of compliments. And it is truly comfortable! The pockets are awesome and the structure in the upper part of the dress (boning and inner bra support) were great for someone with a fuller chest like me. BUT...I would say the dress runs abut large--especially up top. And for someone with a DDD cup, that's saying a lot. I'm a pretty solid 14 at the moment and it was so big when I first tried it on that there was no way I could have worn it like that. I had to buy a super structured and padded bra to make it work--and even then I had to pin the back to my bra to keep it up. So if I rented it again, I'd size down. Also, it's pretty short! I'm only 5'4" and I could not have worn more than the kitten heels I had on without it looking weird so if you are any taller, get the long version.

Gorgeous Dress! Can't Lose With this One!
This was my first RTR experience and the customer service was excellent! I rented the Monique Lhullier dress first and that one did not work out well. I received the ornamental gown overnight rush and it was a little too big but gorgeous! I wish I would have sized down to a 20WR as the dress would have stayed up. Tried with bra and dress kept falling, wore with only the support provided in the dress don't forget to close the two clasps in the back for greater support! Have another event coming up in April can't wait to rent my next dress.

Amazing dress, with pockets!
This dress runs between true to size and large. I could've gone a size down, but they didn't have it in stock. However, I made it work! Very comfortable dress, and the pockets were icing on the cake. The fabric is heavy, but still feels light and isn't hot. I am 5'2 and wore 3.5 inch heels, then changed into flats as the night went on... so in the regular length at my height you can get away with heels or flats and no one would know the difference.. the dress is a great length.

I received so many compliments on the dress!
Runs true to size, if not a little large. I wore a strapless bra, which means I could have gone down a size, as it slipped once that was on; or even have gone braless. The length is just at the ground, as other reviews stated - so I wore little kitten heels. The dress has more goldish tones at the bottom, that doesn't show up in the images. One of the compliments was from a woman from Denmark that was telling me about the Hans Christian Andersen 'Little Mermaid' story and that my dress reminded her of that. :)

I felt like a rock star!
I rented this dress for a black tie gala. I requested a 6R and 8R but ended up wearing the 6 because it was a bit more snug in the bust and I felt more "locked and loaded" if you will. The only thing is it is shorter than I expected but I wore flats so I think it was a bit of a win. To sum it up, gorgeous dress, comfortable, no bra needed (for me), and BOOM it has pockets. Rent it!

Great night, great dress
The dress was the perfect length with 3 inch heals. The pockets are nice and big. It fit absolutely perfectly so I didn't need to worry about it falling down. The corset is nice and structured. The material is substantial and doesn't show wrinkles which is great.

I LOVED this dress.
I wore this to the 2017 Golden Globes. The 16 was a big on me though so I had to get it altered. But luckily, it was a quick, reversible fix. The dress is very regal and I got compliments all night. Also, very easy to wear a bra with if needed with a shrug. GREAT CHOICE. And POCKETS!!

Fairytale dress!
It is NOT green! The information online says it is and so did the consultant I chatted with but I took a chance that it would be charcoal (we were going to a black and white NYE gala) and I'm glad I did! The dress is charcoal with silver irredescence on top and cream with gold at the bottom. As you can see, there is less of the cream than in the photos (perhaps because I got a regular length?) I rented the size up and the size down since my size was not available. The 18 was too snug and the 22 was quite big. Luckily my mother minored in fashion design and was able to baste the sides with temporary stitches so that it fit like a dream. I am 5-6 and the regular length was perfect with my sparkley flat sandals (my husband is shorter than me so I haven't worn heels in years) Everywhere I went at the Ritz Carlton that evening, I was stopped with compliments on the dress. My husband kept saying my dress was the best one there...I agree it was definitely in the top 5 (there were some amazing gowns at the event!) I loved the pockets as they allowed me to keep my camera close!

Feel like a Princess, at least for a night!
The perfect dress for a formal New Year's Eve party. Why? It's got pockets and it's shimmery, with heavy brocade material to keep you at least fairly warm. Just gorgeous. I got told by everyone I was best dressed and got compliments all night long. I do not know why people are saying it runs very small. I wore the size I normally wear and it fit perfect.

My favorite rental so far (and i have rented a lot!). This dress is made from a beautiful thicker material, so it's perfect for the winter. Runs a little small, so size up. The cut is super flattering!

Runs small but is very beautiful
This is a gorgeous dress, warm for cooler weather and has pockets! I'm 5'2" and had to wear super high heels to keep it from dragging on the floor. I'm also usually a size 6 but rented a 10R because it was the only size available at the time. I'm glad I did because it fit very well. An 8R would probably have worked too but may have been a bit snug in the waist area. Overall I recommend this for formal events. Absolutely beautiful.

The 2 was a bit tight, but the 4 wasn't tight enough in the waist to stay up since the dress is pretty heavy. I'm 5'9' and the length was perfect with 2 inch heels. Beautiful dress :)

An Unforgettable, Unique Gown
I rented this dress for a very large black tie holiday party and it was absolutely stunning and the most unique dress there. The fabric is shimmering and rich in color (it is a very dark green, almost black, and champagne at the bottom), and while it is thick (kept me warm during a Chicago blizzard), it is not heavy. It fit like a glove everywhere except the bust, which was pretty loose. I am not a heels girl, so I wore two-inch wedges and the dress dragged about an inch on the ground, but it wasn't hard to just lift it a little to move around. It felt beautiful and princess-like but the print kept it pretty rock-n-roll at the same time. I didn't want to return it :)

I highly recommend the dress! It's very glamorous.
This dress is absolutely stunning and the print is beyond slimming. I am only 5'1" and even with 4 inch heels, the dress was too long. No amount of hem tape would work. I couldn't wear the dress, but the experience of getting and returning was fabulous and most efficient. My next order includes some petites, so I am hopeful the length will work. I highly recommend the dress! It's very glamorous.

Stunning dress
This dress is absolutely beautiful and I was so excited to wear it. However, the dress arrived damaged, which was a little disappointing. Luckily, RTR has ~fantastic~ customer service. I emailed them letting them know about how my dress arrived and they told me that they could send me another dress that would arrive on the day of my event. So shoutout to the RTR customer service team for helping turn this potentially disastrous situation around. Thanks a million!

The dress was beautiful. But was too big. I wear a size 16 and ordered the 16wl and 18wl I needed a 14wl. I ended up putting 2 safety pins to attach it to my bra so it wouldn't fall off. Worked out great. Love the pockets. This dress was amazing

Perfect for a formal affair!
Great gown for a formal affair. This dress was a bit snug. I am usually a 4, and went to the Theia website to make sure I was getting the right size, ordered the 4, but did need help hooking up the built-in bodice because it was quite snug. I was unable to wear any type of bra with the dress because it was already so snug up top (and I'm small-busted!). But the dress was not uncomfortable in the least. I wore it for almost 6 hours and no complaints! Just lots of compliments. The gown did drag on the floor for me as I'm very short (5'0"), even wearing 4 inch heels. This wasn't a total surprise and I just lifted my gown a bit when I walked or danced. Great success!

Not only was the dress unique, but it fit like a glove!
I wore this dress to a black tie event. The photo does not do the dress justice. The pattern is exquisite, and the photo makes it look a bit shinier than it really is. I wear a 34 DDD and the top fit fine. SO if you are smaller chested, this dress may not work for you. I'm 5'4" and wore 4 inch heels. The length was just right.

built in corset and pockets!
I rented this dress for a fall gala. As previous reviewers mentioned the corset is very tight and can be difficult to hook yourself. I was able to buckle mine for the event, but I needed help to get the zipper up. The length was perfect for me, but I wore 3+ inch heels. I was totally able to dance and eat in the gown, so that was also a plus.

Big S/O to RTR for making me look good for my fundraiser ball!
This dress is wonderful! It's so comfortable and hides a wide midsection. I have a very ample chest and the girls fit in just fine. There are hangers on the inside of the dress that have a tendency to pop out, but I'm sure a few safety pins could fix that issue. One thing I loved about this dress is that it has a "bra" built in - there is extra support for my other well-endowed ladies out there. One other thing I loved about this dress - POCKETS! The long was a perfect length for me - I'm about 5'8" and I wore 3" heels.
