Beautiful dress, wrong size.
RTR sent me the wrong length. I am 5'2'' and they sent me a Long... and boy was it long!

Gorgeous Dress!
I'm fairly petite and thought this dress worked out perfectly. I wore 3-4 inch heels. I ended up wearing a sort of elaborate black cord belt at my waist because without it I felt like it wasn't vey exciting. Other than that, I would definitely recommend this dress!

My dress came just in time and the fit was perfect for my body shape and concealed what I wanted.
I have a bigger bust, medium waist, and big hips and thigh area and the fit was perfect for my shape. It was comfortable enough that I was not worrying about sitting or standing in it. The bottom half flowed over my hips and flattered me. The slit was a bit high so finding matching footwear was essential to show when walking however, pictures tended to not show that far down and it was the perfect length for my height. Fabric tended to wrinkle towards the bottom. Overall, it was an amazing find and I got my dress just in time for the event!

Great dress. Very simple and classic.
Fit true to size. Wore to a black tie wedding and was perfect. Got tons of complements. One thing I didn't notice in the pictures was that there is a thick silver zipper down the side. It isn't huge, but is exposed and would have been nice to know! Very happy with this dress!

Did not work out :(
This dress was a backup that was sent to me - it probably runs true to size although the size that was sent to me was pretty big to begin with. I probably would order a 4 or 2 if I considered renting this dress in the future.

Very Flattering
I didn't actually wear this dress. It was my back up dress but it was still a great dress. I would wear it to a party for sure. Its not too too formal but still looked great.

Beautiful dress, but didn't end up wearing it
Even though I didn't end up wearing this (was a little tight around my waist, but I'm 5 months pregnant) - this was a beautiful dress. Fit well through hips, waist, arms; was a little loose around chest area but that may be part of the style. Would love to try this again with post-baby body!

It was a perfect combination of formal and fun.
The length was fairly long. I'm just under 5'5" and wore 4 inch heals. I could walk in the dress, but dancing was very difficult. Because of the length, the slit didn't show as well when I walked, but watch out when you sit--make sure you have a napkin over your lap. Overall I loved the dress and felt great in it.

Easy to wear, but if you are tall, order the long!
The slit is incredibly high -- so make sure to bring safety pins!

Overall, my opinon is neutral. The colors and simple design were great.
The ends were fraying when I recieved the dress. Very cheaply made when looking having it on, but I wouldn't notice it if I wasn't wearing it. . The slit was very high, so the dress was extremely revealing!

Great fit, feminine lines, and very comfortable to wear all night
Fit was great - hugged in all the right places without being too revealing. I'm athletically shaped and sometimes the 1-shoulder dresses can make my shoulders look broader and my chest flatter; but the rouching of the top portion of the dress was very feminine. This dress could be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion. The material wasnt too thin so I could get away without needing to wear any special undergarments (no slip or bra with particular straps or anything). Of note, the slit goes up pretty high (higher than I expected given the picture); it wasn't a problem for me but keep this in mind if you're going to an outdoor event (ie, wind!).

Senior Prom Success
I LOVED this dress. The slit up the side was a little bit too high for my tastes, but I just wore a pair of spandex shorts underneath to remedy it, and it was fine. This dress was absolutely gorgeous and so, so, so comfortable. I didn't have to wear a bra with it, although it would be totally possible to wear a strapless bra if needed. I rented both the 6R and the 8R. They both fit, but the 8R fit absolutely perfectly and still just barely swept the ground with my 4 inch heels. This is a must rent dress.

Loved the dress, felt so elegant in it. I got so many compliments.
I got a size 8 and it fit perfectly, I didn't wear a bra but you could definitely wear a strapless. The only problem I had was that it was a little to long. I am 5'4" and got the 8R and wore my highest heels and stepped on the bottom a few times. Other than that a great dress.

Modern, beautiful, but oh so long!
The good news: This gown is unique and modern. It will attract compliments. It's stunning yet understated, and so very comfortable to wear. I love the feel of silk. Now for the bad news: This gown is really not meant for people 5'3" and under. I wore 5-inch heels with a 1-inch platform on the shoe, and it still wasn't enough to get the gown off the ground. Unfortunately, I couldn't relax and enjoy the beautify of the gown because I was so preoccupied with keeping it safe. The Stylist Notes are a bit misleading about this gown's actual length and who can pull it off. Good luck!

Very pretty for formal NYE wedding!
The dress was very pretty ... I added a gold belt to help dress it up for a formal NYE wedding. The slit is VERY high ... I ended up pinning it, but was still pretty self conscious about it.

Pretty and unique
Gorgeous dress with a very Angelina Jolie-esque slit (except not as tacky, obviously!). I am a true size 4 and the dress fit perfectly and was a great choice for a black-tie NYE wedding reception.

Love RTR
Loved this dress and was complimented all night!! I got the 4R and the 6L. They both fit and looked good but the smaller size did not fall as well on the bottom. The slit is very very high. I recommend having a safety pin just as a back up. When I went out on the dance floor I just put in the safety pin just to make sure no one got a free show :)

Gorgeous gown, flattering and easy
Such a great gown. The colorblocking really slims you down and the green is an absolutely amazing color. Fitted at the waist, but very comfortable in the hips - I could dance in this all night! Regular length was perfect for me in 3 inch heels

Dress looked nice but was too long for my height.
I followed the size chart and thought my 5" heels would be enough but the dress was still too long so did not get a chance to wear unfortunately.

Unflattering
I was disappointed in this dress. Mainly, it's not the best for small frames. There is a lot of fabric on the top part and though it is fitted at the waist, the overall effect is somewhat shapeless. Also, something was off about the fit. It wasn't to small or too big, but the waist hit me at an awkward point slightly higher than my natural waist. If you have narrow hips, the skirt part just kind of hangs. I think this could look great on somebody more curvy.

Simple and Elegant!
I received this dress after hearing that the dress I had chosen was unavailable due to the hurricane. The dress was made beautifully and fit well. I wore the 4 but think a 2 would have fit perfectly. I opted to add a belt since it was a little large up top on me. The only complaint is that the stylist shipped me regular length even though my profile shows I'm 5'10" . Anyone over 5'7" should definitely go with the LONG length. This dress would be perfect for a wedding or more formal holiday party.

Dress was amazing! Fit perfectly! Everyone love it!
The fit was great I like that I didn't really even need a special bra to go with this dress. The material was great and super comfortable. I loved that this dress had a nice high sexy split up the side/middle yet it was hidden unless you had a nice breeze haha. very nice surprise yet modest. Overall It was a great choice for my black tie affair would recommend to women who have a little belly pudge even it hides flaws well!!

Felt amazing in this dress - complemented by beautiful earrings and clutch!
This fits true to size. The 10 was out so I opted for the 10L. I did need to wear higher heels and make sure that if you wear Spanx, they are the shorter version. The slit opens a little high when you walk. All around, very comfortable and flowing.

All night I heard how great I looked with my fabulous yet simple dress. Perfect fit for my body type
I am 5'3" and was wearing 5in heels. Although not perfect length it was as close as one can get. Always a risk you run with long dresses but it worked. Very happy about my first RTR experience!
