The dress is absolutely beautiful! It was very flattering! I rented the long and REALLY should have had the regular (it wasn't available) I also got the 10 and it was pretty big. An 8 would have been much better. The skirt has a ton of fabric on it, it moves and flows beautifully, but when you sit, beware, it spreads out! I spent all night worrying about the people stepping on it in close quarter seating. But I got many compliments and would choose it again!

I am ADORE this dress and received endless compliments. It is very floaty and does run a bit big. With the long I was glad I had on heels and did have to be careful on stairs, but the train gave the dress the punch I needed for a very posh affair. Bodice fit nicely without a bra and the hip fit did not require shaping garments. Went fabulously from cocktails to seated dinner to the event to the post-party where I danced the night away. Truly felt like Cinderella!

Thought this might look a bit matronly; but it was more Nicole Kidman Glamorous! I wore the RJ Graziano, "Running In Circles Bracelet" (which was PERFECT with this dress) but you could wear a necklace instead. Not too much, this dress is a stunner! Very comfortable (especially for being so glamorous)but there is a bit of a "train" in the front and back. More of a lengthened hem, really. Can't recommend this elegant dress enough! (Figure Flattering!!!)

If you have a smaller chest size down! It runs large through the bust and ribcage. But other than that it is a beautiful gown. It was a little too short with my heels on even in the long length, so keep that in mind as well.

Very classy dress. I got it for a black tie event and it was stunning. I was 16 weeks pregnant and the cut was very flattering, hid my bump quite well. Highly recommend.

Beautiful, comfortable dress!

Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this thinking I'd wear it to my courthouse wedding. It was a bit too fancy, so I ended up going with an ivory cocktail dress. But this was very comfortable and offered a lot of support for my 34DDD girls. I was nervous about getting the long version, but it was perfect for me (5'7) with 2 inch heels.

The fit is nice, but the dress arrived in very wrinkled condition so I didn't wear it. i don't know if this is just a problem with the fabric or it wasn't properly pressed before shipping.

Beautiful dress

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was beautiful, comfortable, and very nice in person. I chose to wear something else, because the long wasn't "quite" long enough for me, but if I had to wear it, I gladly would have. Because I have a small bust, I would have preferred to wear the 6L, but I only had an 8L, and it was my backup dress so I did not have the 6L to try (although I'm sure the 6L would have been even shorter than the 8L). That being said, I still think that the dress runs true to size, because I have a very small bust. If you have a B-C, you will fit nicely into this gown.

RTR was so easy and made me feel like a star! My friends told me I looked like a celebrity

Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I ordered this dress in a 0R with a free 2R as a backup. The 2R was a bit loose, while the 0R was snugger, so I went with the 0. Returning the dress was super easy because of the explicit instructions. My only complaint would be the quality of the dresses. The 2 was flawless, while the 0 was of a bit worse quality. Nothing conspicuous, but the 0 had a few small snags in the middle of the skirt and the zipper was more difficult.

I was definitely the best dressed at my company's formal Christmas party!

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I ordered the 4R with backup size of 6R. I'm a tad on the pear shaped side...smallish waist and large hips/butt. Since this dress is very forgiving in the hip area, the 4R fit perfectly! I wore it to my company's formal Christmas party at a fancy hotel in DC. I felt sooo comfortable and sexy! To add a pop of color, I paired it with hot pink heels and clutch. Silver or black would also have worked well. My one and only complaint is that the outer flowy part of the skirt was a bit static-y. I'm sure static guard or some fabric softeners would've solved the problem, but I didn't have any on me. This was my first rental from RTR, and it did not disappoint! The website is not letting me upload a photo right now, but I will try again later!

I am short, but this dress (in regular) was the perfect length with my 3" heels! It accentuates your bustline and downplays your stomach area, which is a real plus for me, as I have two small children! A beautiful, elegant gown! I got SO many compliments, it was really flattering. I highly recommend this dress!

Loved this dress to the moon and back!

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I used this dress for my Senior Prom (April 2012). I wanted something unique yet stunning and this dress fit the bill! Although RTR didn't have a size quite small enough it still worked out for me, I just kinda held it up when I needed to. It was well worth the work. I would suggest having a back up dress just in case it doesn't fit well. The bust is large even for the size itself. I think I ended up renting a four but they either didn't have a size two at the time or they just didn't carry it. All in all I was more than pleased with this dress! I wish I could've kept it to play dress up =] Thank you RTR!

I wasn't too impressed with this gown. It was way too large for me to actually wear it, so maybe try going down a size with it? Don't think I'm gonna try this one again even in a different size...

I like this dress because it is a flattering fit, has beautiful sequin work at the waist, and has cups built in so a bra isn't necessary if you are smaller chested. I sized down for length but either size worked!

Graceful, classy dress! Perfect for hourglass, full busts and pear shaped!

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
RTR was everything I expected it to be. I ordered two different dresses in two sizes and when neither style fit, I called the stylist and I was overnighted a second size... a smaller size. This dress is beautiful, comfortable and easy to wear. It's not to low or too tight which after having a baby, was perfect for me. The glamour and gracefulness of the dress was perfect for a formal military event and I just loved the way it moved. I was complimented over and over. Although, I'm 5'8 and the hem skimmed the floor, so I had to wear flats. I wasn't that disappointed in the shorter hem but the stylist at RTR said that she was sending a 6L... I checked the dress and it was impossible to tell whether it was a long or not. Also, this dress has a slight train, which was occasionally stepped on. Other than those things, I had an amazing evening in an amazing dress. I will definitely be using RTR again!

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size

The dress fit perfectly and I am so glad I also got the jewelry. I am smaller on top so the 6 fit better than the 8. I had two small liquid on the front of my dress, so I was a little disappointed with that. However i informed RTR and they were more than generous and gave me a full refund.

Beautiful dress!

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I felt like this dress ran a little big; I typically wear a 6 in dresses and I was pulling this one up all night (I have a fairly large bust, 34D, so I was surprised, maybe it was from being worn many times). In addition, it was almost too short! I had to wear kitten heels, not what I was planning on wearing so had to rush to store to pick some up. Another girl in the wedding rented from RTR and had the same issue. Bust wise, I think the 4R would have been better for me but the length probably would not have worked. Regardless; I loved this dress! Everyone complemented me on it. I wore it in a wedding where the bride had the bridesmaids wear a certain shade of grey and this was just perfect. There was a snag in the zipper and I didn't notice it until the day before the wedding. RTR was very helpful, offered to send me another dress, but in the end it was not noticeable and I was able to wear it. Very happy with this experience!!!
