Very elegant formal dress!
Didn't have my usual size in stock, went one size up so the fit wasn't great. I didn't wear the dress in the end because it was more formal than my event (the wedding I went to was in the mountains and outside). Would recommend for a black tie/formal event as it's a very glam and elegant dress. The length was great for me with 4" heels (I'm 5'6). If you do order, I would say choose your regular size and go one size down in case of gaping in the chest.

Comfy... Fun...Flattering Gown
Wear seamless undergarments. My only complaint is that the dress shows everything. So try your undergarments on ahead of time. The dress is really flattering. I sized up... only because I am not a fan of super tight clothes. The dress is true to size and is very flattering. Its perfect for a formal and/or cocktail attire event. If you are on the fence... get it! You will not regret it!

Nothing bad to say about it! Long enough with 4'' heels to hit the floor.

Great Dress! Awesome color and flattering fit!
Pros: Fabric was thicker and didn't show bra or underwear lines. The color was awesome and the dress fit very nicely. Due to high neck line no necklace is needed,and that was nice. Cons: I am small chested and it definitely looked like I was. I also couldn't wear the bra I wanted due to the side/ how the dress was cut (super low so the band would show under the arm). Length was fine for me with 3ish inch heels and I am about 5'2.

Received many compliments on the color and style of the dress!
This dress was perfect for a formal event. The color, fit and cut were very flattering. It was heavier than I anticipated so I did have to pull it up often to avoid stepping on it. Otherwise, loved it!

PERFECT Dress.
It is VERY well made. The fabric has a nice weight to it so lays nicely. My daughter is 6' 3"so we did order the LONG. Was it to the floor? no. But it was lovely. We could have gone to buy a bra, but I felt the arm opening was a little large and you would have seen it so we did not. We taped her in and it worked just fine. I definitely recommend the dress, but do consider the bra.

Customer service was great. Return was super easy
Fit was great. I do wish I had gone with a 0P instead of 0R. I'm 5'4 and wore 3.5 inch heels. The dress dragged a little on the ground. Luckily I ordered the fashion temporary hem tape so I was able to tape up the bottom by about an inch or so

The color and cut was amazing!
This dress runs true to size and is meant to hug your curves. I got a lot of compliments on it and was happy with the dress overall. With someone as tall as I am, it does run short so I suggest getting a long when possible. Overall, I would recommend this to a friend.

Loved this dress!!!
This dress was the perfect fit for a black tie optional wedding in May! Super comfortable, was able to dance. I would have preferred to have the 4R but the 4L was my only option and it wasn't too long with 4 inch heels.

Perfect color!
I absolutely loved this dress! It was great quality. It was actually nice and thick, but not hot at all and I was in Florida. The color was amazing on and it was so slimming. Everyone asked where I got my dress. The whole process was super easy and made my night better because I felt comfortable and confident. The only con would be I am very chesty so I needed the 12p and used double sided fashion tape to keep it down on the sides.

I ordered the 6 and the 8 as my backup - I ended up going with the 6 as it was nicely fitted in the top and flowed beautiful. The 8 was a bit loose up top and weirdly short. Lots of compliments and comfortable!

Favorite dress I've rented from RTR!! Beautiful for a wedding.
This is a beautiful dress (awesome color) and I received so many compliments on it. It fit like a glove and was not too loose or too tight. I wore the 0L (I'm 5'10) and I decided to wear flats, which I like to do sometimes when I can get away with it. You can see from the picture that it was long enough to cover my casual sandals, but I was still able to dance without tripping all over myself. Definitely would rent again!! Fun fact: after wearing the dress, I noticed on TV that it was the same dress Lauren B. wore on the Bachelor when Ben H. proposed to her! :)

Perfection
LOVED this dress. Was my first RTR experience. I'm 5'6 and ~125 lbs and the 2 was perfect. Was able to wear a strapless bra and spanx and was super comfortable all night. The dress is a beautiful color and such a great silhouette. Received so many compliments.

Classic yet still edgy due to racer back. Bright color makes you stand out!
I'm normally a 8R in formal attire due to chest size (can't get zipper up over my ribs) but ordered the 6R as a backup due to other comments. So thankful I did because the 8R was a bit big in the bust area, making it gape just under the armpits (thus showing my strapless bra). The 6R was more snug in the chest, but not too tight. This dress is form-fitting regardless of size so if you have that small momma-pooch, like me, I'd suggest having SPANXX ready to help pull things in. Otherwise, this dress is stunning AND comfortable!

This dress fits true to size and the regular is a perfect length with heels. The dress was super comfortable and I got compliments all night on how beautiful it looked from behind. The dress is form fitting and shows off all your curves in a classy way. It was perfect for a big summer wedding!

Bold color for a black tie wedding.
I originally found this dress to rent because Lauren Bushnell wore it on the season finale of The Bachelor and I knew how much my husband liked blondes wearing this bright blue color. I rented the 12R and the 14R but wish I would have had the 12L. Wearing 3" heels the dress was a couple inches off the ground when I would have liked it to brush the ground. It felt stretchy enough to move in but also form fitting to show off some curves - the inner lining was great. I wore it to a black-tie wedding that was partially outdoors on a 90° day in May and I still felt cool enough in the gown. The cut was low under the armpits so I didn't feel like my sweat was showing at all on the gown. FIT: was snug around the hips and a little bigger in the chest. A size 12 in the hips and 10 in the chest would have been a perfect fit for my body. UNDERGARMENTS: worked great with a pair of spanx and strapless bra but could have maybe gone without a bra. ACCESSORIES: I wore a statement necklace, gold bangle, peach purse, and nude strappy heels. HAIR: kept it simple with waves swept to one side with an accent braid.

Hey, Good Looking
First, let me tell you about my body.... I'm 5'4''-5'5'' and I guess that I have an hourglass shape... I'm around 160 pounds give or take a few slices of pizza. I have huge boobs (34G/36DD-D), tiny waist, a butt (like a BIG perky one), and the occasional stomach if my IBS decides to come to town - it really depends on the day. Anyways, this dress was a stunner, everyone told me how skinny I looked, and it accentuated my tiny waist; all positives here. I did not need a bra, which was fantastic because I don't think that one can comfortably wear a bra with this dress. I wore the 10R, I fit into the 8R, but because of the aforementioned attributes, the 10 was the better pick because it was not as tight as the 8, and I did not want to wear spanks in the 10. The color was gorgeous. Hey curvy girls, you can wear this!

Perfect
I wore this dress to an evening black tie formal wedding and it was absolutely perfect. This dress fit like a glove in all the right places. I can be anywhere from a 6-10 in dresses depending on the cut and the style and was worried this dress wouldn't work because I have a wider rib cage but this dress made me feel like a million bucks. I received compliments all night long and the color was vibrant and beautiful. I ordered a 6L and an 8R but went with the 6 for a more body hugging fit. The 8R gapped in the armpits and was much too short for my 2 inch heels. This is my first RTR experience and I am so so impressed and will definitely rent again!

The 0R was perfect for me and required about a 3.5 inch heel to not be too long. I got compliments on the dress- it's a gorgeous color and is a great fabric. Definitely perfect for a wedding!

This dress was perfect to attend a black-tie wedding and show off my growing baby bump! :)
I feel like I took a slight risk in renting this dress, but it paid off. I rented the dress over a month in advance knowing that I would be 18 weeks pregnant at the time of the event. The description and other reviewers described this dress as having some stretch, so I went with it. I'm also 5'10" and planned to wear heels, and I worried about the length from other reviewers. I ordered the dress in an 8L (I'm normally a 6-8 dress size). The length was perfect and I wore the dress with 4.5" heels - definitely long enough! Also, the slight stretch of the dress showed off my little baby bump perfectly! It's a simple yet elegant dress, and I was able to pair it with some statement earring and necklace. I received lots of compliments and felt very comfortable and confident. I would highly recommend it! Another great experience with RTR!

This dress was perfect!
This dress was a dream. The heavy material made the dress hang beautifully . I didn't even feel the need to wear shape wear. I'm 5'7" and the regular length was perfect, but I wore flats. It still would've worked with heels because the front of the dress hit the floor and the back of the dress is longer. I didn't want to give the dress back - I would definitely rent it again.

Comfortable and classy!
The material was a dream. I was 14 weeks pregnant when I rented so I wore a size or two larger than my normal (8R) but this dress has so much stretch that I would consider it bump friendly for early second trimester. I received the most compliments I have ever for a formal affair dress. The color was great and I felt awesome all night. I wore flats with an 8R so if you're taller and wanting to wear heels go with the long sizes. I can't stress how comfortable this dress is!! Definitely highly recommend!

Most amazing dress I've ever worn!!
I rented the dress for a black tie wedding and am soooooo happy I did!! This dress fit like a glove. I'm usually a 4 or 6 so I rented both. I tried on the 4 first, which fit perfectly. I did wear spanx under which I'd definitely recommend since the dress is so form fitting. Material is stretchy enough to move around, but with the second layer of material, it falls beautifully on the body. I'm 5'4" and I wore 3 inch heels and the dress was just a tad bit too long (I wore the 4 regular). The color is gorgeous, and I received complements all night.

Stood out for all the right reasons!
I felt like a movie star in this dress. The color was vibrant and really popped amidst a sea of black gowns. Elegant yet sexy; formal yet easy to move and dance in. I was sad to send it back! I wore a 0R. I'm almost 5'6" and the R length was perfect with ~4" heels. The fit was a bit large around the waist and bust (just under 110 lbs with a 30C bust for reference). Dress was paired with the Loeffler Randall Silver Tab Clutch & Lizzie Fortunato Silver Pebble Cuff.

Fit like a glove!!
I have recently lost weight, and my body has changed a little bit, I have been able to fit in most size 6 things and I was afraid with the formal gown that it might run small, like most do! But after reading reviews I decided to get a 6L and 8L since I knew I'd be wearing heels. It was like someone hemmed it to fit my height. The fabric is heavy weight and thick enough that you wouldn't need to wear spankx underneath but I did anyway. I got a ton of compliments and was able to dance all night! I will absolutely rent this again.

The fit was form fitting but the material was thick and forgiving. You can wear spanx but you don't necessarily need them! The length was perfect for 3inch heels, it just skimmed the ground. Got tons of compliments and felt amazing all night!

Loved it! Tons of compliments :)
I am 5'7" and the long was WAY too long.. unless you are planning to wear 8 in heels. The regular length was perfect! It was a big heavy for a summer wedding, but everyone was pretty warm in the sun. The thicker material laid very nicely and I felt very glamorous at the garden wedding. :)

Form fitting but still great for dancing!!
I rented this dress for my senior prom and it was great! I loved the color, the cobalt is so bold, and got compliments on it all night. The neckline is extremely flattering as well as the overall fit. I usually stay away from tighter dresses, but with a pair of spanx I felt amazing in this dress!! It gets looser at the bottom so it was still good for dancing; with heels (I wore 5 inches) it fell right above the floor for me (I'm 5'6"). Simple and comfortable!
