Very glamorous!

Loved the built in corset. Dress was stunning yet comfortable. Length was perfect with a 2.5-3" heel (I'm about 5'4.5")

Color was gorgeous. I got so many compliments!!

This was actually my back-up dress and I fell in love with it the moment I unpacked it. The blue is gorgeous and the lace was delicate and beautiful. This dress fit me perfectly as a 6. I got the long because I was wearing 3" heels. This does have a slight train and I was a little concerned about people stepping on it at our fundraiser event but it didn't really happen. I'm 5'6" and hover between 135-140. The 6 was perfect and with a pair of spanx, everything smoothed out. I'd definitely rent this for another event again!

Good fit and beautiful color

Fit like a glove! I was scared about the bra situation, but it came with a built in bra that gave good support. Pictures don't do justice for the color, it has a beautiful shimmery blue color. The only thing that messed it up for me was that they forgot to include the belt that came with the dress, I had to go last minute and make a belt (I used ribbon and belt-crow) for the dress I was not happy about this at all. They forgot to include the belt even in the additional size I ordered 2R.

I felt like a queen!!

I have an athletic build especially my upper body - the dress was fitted in the arms/shoulders but then too tight when I lift my arms up to dance.I ordered a size up for this reason just in case-- but it wasn't a big issue I just couldn't get wild on the dance floor ;) If I were any bulkier up top I wouldn't have chosen this gown as it draws all attention to your chest and arms. I loved everything about this dress!!! A few things to consider... If you are in between a R and L then get long. I'm almost 5'7 and really should have gotten the 4L. Lastly, watch your jewels as everything catches on this dress! I opted not to wear the belt also, a belt on this kind of dress is unnecessary when it's already so beautiful! I don't think you can go wrong with this dress!

Compliments all night!

I loved the dress! I felt like a princess. I did wear the back up size however I wish I would have wore the size 4 because the size 6 felt like it was coming down all night. The size 4 fit me like a glove but I was a little scared it looked too tight but really it fit perfect. I got a regular and the length was on the verge of being too short. I am only 5'6 and I wore about 3 in heels. If you are wearing bigger heels you might want to get a long. The only negative was that they forgot to send the belt with the dress. I really wish I had the belt because I think it was a cute detail but the dress was really pretty without. Overall I LOVED the dress and felt super pretty in it!

Simple but stunning silhouette

Wore this dress to a NYE black tie gala. The fit and flare is a classic silhouette that worked well for the occasion. I received many compliments and it photographed well. The mid section rode up a bit though, so I had to keep adjusting it. It was a beautiful dress, but I wouldn't suggest it if you are hoping to dance and move around a lot. I also ended up going up a size for comfort. The built in bra was a nice touch and I felt snug and secure.

Gorgeous dress

This dress is gorgeous! The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because it's a little short. I am 5'3" and once I put my heels on it didn't touch the ground. But other than that, the fit is very flattering, I wore spanks but didn't really need too.

This dress was perfect for a black tie optional wedding

The dress was beautiful. The lace overlay was snagged and ripped in a few places but once I was wearing if you were unable to tell. Fit was a little large in the chest. The zipper was also hard to zip and I was afraid of ripping the dress. I definitely got a lot of compliments on the dress though!

Felt beautiful

This dress was a classic. The low back made it sexy. I wore 4 inch heels so I ordered the long. I feel as though it was true to size. I am 120 lb and 5'6". Love this dress!

Great gown, settle but beautiful!

This dress fit great, ran true to size. I'm 5'6" and had a hard time deciding between the regular and long. I went with the regular, but if I had to do it again is go with the long. Also, I never go bra-less but I did with this gown. Everything held up perfectly ;) highly recommend this dress!

Gorgeous dress!!

I absolutely loved this dress! It was even more beautiful in person, and very flattering! The size 8 fit like a glove, but I did feel a little restricted in it, so I decided to wear the 10 for a little more dancing/sitting room. Got so many compliments on this dress, so now I need to find another reason to rent it!!

I wore this to a Military Ball. The gown was amazing and I received so many compliments!

The fit was absolutely perfect and it was very comfortable to wear all night. I really felt amazing in it. I didn't need a bra as it has a bustier built in. I am 5'4 and wore 2in heals. It swept the floor and has a slight train. I would definitely recommend this dress. Both sizes fit me, but I went for the 4R because it was more comfortable when I sat down.

Dress was beautiful hanging in plastic. I couldn't wait to put it on.

The 6 was too small, but the 8 was perfect. I was comfortable all night. I got so many compliments on this dress! I can't wait to rent something else.

I wore this for a wedding that I was a greeter in. It was soooo elegant and people complimented it all night. It was also comfortable to wear. I would definitely recommend this dress for a formal affair. It was stunning and I felt amazing.

Lots of compliments!

Amazing RTR overnighted this as my back up dress. Can't believe I didn't just pick this one in the first place! Fit is very slimming with no real give. I tend to have large rib cage and it was tight when I put it on, but was completely perfect! I didn't receive the belt as some others have mentioned but not sure if I would have liked it anyhow. Being 5'8 the 8L was perfect with a 3" heel. The lace did catch at times on the my buckle of my shoe and had to watch people walking on the small train. But no complaints from this girl! Paired with Crystal Infinity bracelet and Southern Plantation earrings.

Wore this to an Air Force Dining Out. The size 0 was a little snug... So I went with the 2 in order to be able to breathe. Fit as described! Very flattering dress! Made me feel like a million bucks!

Gorgeous dress!

I absolutely loved the color of this dress; it pops in any lighting. The illusion neckline is really flattering, too. I thought it would be longer, based on other reviews I read, but with 3.5" heels, the regular was the perfect length.

I got compliments on this dress all night.

It was a little shorter than I expected with my 3 in heels , I'm 5'3", the front was a bit too short but the small train made up for that. Overall it was a great dress for a formal wedding.

I received compliments all night and my husband loved the fit!

The fit of this gown was true to size. The shoulder were a bit tight but it made the dress feel like it moved with my body not against it. The light shimmer throughout the dress was gorgeous. The belt gave a little added touch to make the overall look classy and elegant.

Perfection

This dress is stunning . I rented it for a formal wedding and absolutely loved it. I typically wear a 4 or 6 in dresses, so I ordered both sizes. The 4 was not even close, but the 6 worked out beautifully. Also, the 6 did not come with the belt, but since there was one with the 4, I just used that one instead. I got so many compliments on this dress and really hated to have to send it back.

Beautiful, comfortable and elegant!!

This dress is amazing!! I was worried about renting it because I am so short and always have a hard time with long dresses. I wore it with 3'' heals and the length was perfect. I also got a 6p just in case but the length on the 6p was too short for me and the top was too big. The only issue I had with the dress was that the lining under the lace was longer so it peeked out. I just tucked it under the corset on top and it was fine. The corset was a huge plus!! I am so glad I rented it!!! I highly recommend this dress.

Work

I wore this dress to a formal gala. I'm short and curvy, and it fit like a glove. I ordered a 2 and 4... The four was tight, but not uncomfortable. Wonder if a 6 would have been better. I'm only 5'1" and was convinced it'd be too long. I had 3 inch heals and it was a touch longer than I would have liked, but I didn't have any problems. I got so many compliments and felt so good in this dress.

The sparkle.

Worn at a hospital gala. It was stunning. Draw backs, the one I got was ripped. I was able to mend it, but it was disheartening (2nd time this has happened). The left breast was well attached to the lace, the right breast was ripped from the lace and left a snag mark. I'm short 5ft, and wore tall heals, still a tad long(which is my normal). Because I have a short collarbone/cleavage area, it felt like the breast part sat lower than it wore on an average sized person. But it was beautiful and I was complimented on it. Over all, it did the job.

I received SO many compliments on this dress! I felt like a beauty queen in it. :)

It runs slightly small. My regular size is 2 and if I had been any other time of the month (hint, hint), I would have had to go up to the four. I'm glad I had two sizes just in case! It fit well and I didn't have to wear a bra due to the boning in the bodice.

Delivered on-time..easy return shipping.

This dress was absolutely beautiful!!! This is my first experience with RTR and I will definitely be returning! I received many compliments on this dress AND it was very comfortable (this is coming from a girl who dislikes wearing dresses)!! I was sad that I had to send it back. This dress has a built-in bra which is always a plus. The back is open but does not go to far down (ends at about your bra line). This dress felt conservative and sexy at the same time.

Not your average navy blue.

I was worried when only one size was available but this magically fit perfectly! I'm a 5'1 short and was able to wear an average heel height with this dress. My favorite was how it gave a mermaid effect on the bottom. The blue sparkle to this dress didn't come off as tacky, rather added a nice touch to regular 'navy blue'. I wore this to a black tie wedding and would recommend this dress!

Lovely and sophisticated

The color is stunning and the lace is lovely. It's a very sophisticated and elegant choice. The cons were that there was definitely a lot of wear on both dresses (inside hook & eyes were missing, but luckily on the dress I didn't wear) and neither came with the pictured belt. After some debating I decided to stick with this rather than to exchange it for another dress and I am glad I did, despite some of the problems with quality. This ran small, true to the fit guidelines and what other reviewers said, so I definitely recommend getting the size up as your backup.

Fantastic dress, I got so many compliments

True to size, though I was surprised the regular length fit. I'm 5'2" and wore 3.5 in heels. The length was perfect with the shoes where most others would fit long. The in built bra was perfect as the back is low.

Got compliments all night! This dress was great.

The dress was a little tight around my rib cage, but other than that it fit great. The length was perfect with four inch heels. Definitely needed a friend to help zip it up because the lace would get caught around the zipper.

Stunning color and lace details!

Wore this as my made of honors dress for my sisters wedding. The color is SO stunning. I typically am between a 4-6 and ended up wearing the 6 because it gave me a tad more length and little more space all over. The 4 on the bust fit me better(I'm on the smaller size for bust) but even with just stick ons the top on the 6 was fine. Very fitted and elegant, will make your body look great! Neither dress came with the belt but you couldn't tell and the dress is beautiful without it so I didn't mind.
