I was complimented so many times in this dress!
This was sent as a backup to a dress I had ordered, and it ended up being my favorite. Fit perfectly with a little stretch. I am 5ft7in and approx 135-140 lbs, and the size 6 was perfect. I loved that it had an elastic style fabric, and I loved the style/cut of the dress. Perfect for formal events. I actually went and purchased this dress I loved it so much!

Beautiful blue for a wedding in the Italian Riviera
This was actually my backup for my backup dress... ha! The initial dress I had ordered became unavailable a week before the event. I picked two backup options - and as soon as I tried this dress on, I knew it was the right pick all along. Fit like a glove! Super comfortable, and the color is just stunning. I didn't even wear any jewelry with it, the high neck and cut on the back really made a statement all alone. I have a small bust - so I did wear a strapless bra just to fill it in a bit... Loved this dress.

Beautiful dress, good quality, incredible color.
I am tall, and finding dresses that fit over my (large) hips and long torso is constantly a struggle, and so I am SO glad that I ordered up a size in this dress after reading a few reviews from fellow tall women. I got the 12L and 14L, and while the 12L fit, it was not long enough. The 14L was a little on the loose side in the bust area, but it was the perfect length, so I popped on a more substantial pushup bra and was wedding ready. The material was thick, and good quality so that even though the dress was form fitting, it was not clingy and I did not feel inappropriate wearing it at a church wedding. Even though I was outside in the summer, had no sweat stains visible, and was not uncomfortably warm. Would absolutely recommend this dress.

Super flattering!
This dress is stunning and so flattering. Only thing is, if you're on the shorter end of being petite, it's kind of long — I got the petite, and was wearing 4'' heels, and the dress was still dragging. I was able to hold it up while dancing, though. Still, would rent it (or the same dress in a different color) again for a wedding or any other fancy event.

So comfortable!
I was very pleased with this dress. I usually have a problem finding dress because of my height and bust size. This dress was perfect! I'm usually a 10 but decided to go with the backup 12L just for the longer fit plus the zipper was better on the 12. The dress is slightly shorter in the front just enough for your shoes to peep (I wore a 2 1/2 inch heel) and the back has a small train that made it look very elegant especially in pictures. I ended up wearing stick on's instead of a bra because the material was thick enough and has a nice stretchy hug to it. Overall, I would def wear this again!

Great dress, beautiful and great fabric, not too thick or thin. Great color
I am 5'11" and 170ish. I wish I would have sized up as I am not used to wearing form fitting dresses but tons of compliments and felt great! Perfect length, with high heels and I'm a tall girl. Would totally rent again. No bra necessary either!

The only con was because I need a larger size though the hips it was a little bigger than I would have liked in my bust. Otherwise I loved everything about it.

Perfect for a formal wedding
I made an appointment in store to try this on, and it was beautiful! It fit perfectly & was very comfortable. The color is amazing and although simple, stood out among the crowd. The fabric was a little warm so I would not recommend for a hot outdoor event. I wore without a slip, spanks, or a bra because it shows everything.

Confidence booster!
I rented this for a black tie optional wedding. It was partially outdoors in Houston, Texas in June and this dress was perfect! It's very fitted, but has plenty of stretch and was comfortable all night. My husband loved this dress. Even though I'm typically not comfortable wearing something so form fitting, I never felt insecure in this dress because it's so well made. I will definitely rent this dress again for similar occasions.

"Loved it!
I felt so beautiful in this dress! I was worried about the fit at first, but it was perfect. I'm pretty busty (42D) and didn't need to wear a bra. The fabric was thick, but also lightweight (if that makes sense) and it was perfect for an outdoor wedding. If you have a pooch like me, you might want to get some good Spanx (I didn't :/) I'd definitely wear it again! Thanks RTR!

Fast, convenient
I love that dress! Beautiful color and fit. It runs pretty long, I am 5'5" and despite high heels, it dragged on the floor but it did not bother me. I went with silicone nipple covers ( 32D) and I felt secure. The dress is well made, it's simple and hugs in all the right places. Looking back, I would probably wear steeples bra but you can totally get out without it.

STUNNING COLOR!! Small train
This dress is incredible! Slight stretch makes it extremely comfortable, form fitting at waist and hips so I would recommend Spanx. There is a small train that makes this dress even more elegant. I am 5'10" and the tall was perfect with a low 2" heel, I needed the heel so the train wouldn't drag or trip me. No need for a necklace with the neckline that wasn't tight at all. Will rent again!

Perfect for elegant black tie wedding
The dress was very figure flattering - the 8R was the perfect length paired with 2.5" block heels, and the racerback style allowed me to wear a strapless bra with no issues. The bust area fit very well with no issues. The color really popped at a black tie wedding, and I received lots of compliments! I found it fit a little tighter in my midsection that I would typically like, however the 10R back up size was not shipped. The high neckline highlighted my shoulders nicely. Would definitely rent again!

The color and high neckline are beautiful and flattering
Fit was great, go up a size for the back up, as it does get unforgiving towards the middle. Its definitely very long, 4 inch heels and I still had room for more. Got plenty of complements and the color photographs beautifully. I was comfortable all night and would definitely rent again.

A last minute life saver!
After being informed that my original order would only be available to ship in my larger backup size, this dress was offered as a replacement. I was reluctant since it seemed plain in the pictures online and I'd already fallen in love with the original dress I'd ordered, but in-person this dress turned out to be my favorite by far! The bright blue color did not wash me out and the fit was perfect for someone like me with a pear body shape. The sizing and length were accurate too- I wore a 6R with flat sandals and it just grazed the floor (I am 5'8). The dress was simple but it could easily be dressed up and personalized with accessories. While I did love the curve-hugging fit, I would note that sometimes the dress would wrinkle up around the hips and waist so it did need the occasional smoothing-out while wearing. Also, since the dress fits very closely you need to be extra careful to check that you have no panty-lines from every angle before wearing. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised with the fit and quality of this last minute replacement style!

The color was to die for!!!
I loved the way it hugged my curves. I was pretty sweat proof too. It moved with me when I danced. The only problem was finding the perfect blue tie for my date. We ended up at a bridal shop for his bow tie. Overall, it was an amazing dress!

Fit like a glove!
I'm fairly short and have a small frame overall, with my butt being my problem area. This dress was perfect because it fit up top and wasn't too tight across the hips or thighs- it made my butt look great! It really did fit like a glove and I received compliments all night long. I felt beautiful in the dress!

It was nice to wear color at an event with a sea of black!
This dress is sleek, classy and the color is beautiful. This dress is not roomy in the hip area, so the 8P was fine, but the 6R would have fit me better on top (it was unavailable). I wore a strapless bra and it was fine, and I felt secure and comfortable all night- dancing was fun in this dress. I wore a diamond-esque necklace- short, on the neckline, not draping over the dress- silver mirrored pumps and a silver evening bag. It worked well. I was very happy!

I wore this dress for a military ball and it couldn't have been more perfect. The material is comfortable, the cut is flattering, and the color is amazing. I got so many compliments and would absolutely recommend. I am 5'10" and the long was perfect with flats (my date was my same height).

Beautiful and very long form fitting gown!
Got lots of compliments on this dress. The reviews for this dress are spot on - it is VERY long. I'm 5'7" and wore 4 inch shoes and the 6L dress was still touching the floor. The mfg suggest to order long if you are taller than 5'6", but I would stick with the regular unless you are 5'8" or above. The fabric is beautiful and I didn't need to wear a bra, just some stick-ons for a smooth look. I would rent this dress again in a heart beat, just this time in a R rather than a L.

The color of that dress POPS! It could easily be dressed up or down based on accessories.
That dress fit like a glove! Loved it! It's also fully lined, so I felt like it was flattering to a woman who has had two children. I got the long length and wearing flats, it was a tad too long (I'm 5'8"). Would have been perfect with heels though.

This dress was absolutely perfect. I wore it for a black tie optional, daytime wedding. It was the perfect fit for a curvy woman. The material is heavier than expected, which makes it extra forgiving. Would definitely rent again

I wore it to a good friend's black tie wedding.
This dress is really pretty, and I got lots of compliments. It's a nice, trendy cobalt blue (it looks navy in one of my pics, but that is just the lighting/filter). I'm 5'2" and 135 lbs. I'm very pear-shaped and I have a small bust. The dress was a bit big in the bust, but I was able to pin up the straps and make it work. The petite length worked for me despite how short I am. I wore 3 inch heels, and the dress just skimmed the ground. The dress was really flattering; I was able to wear the 8P without any the spanx. The 6p was so tight that it showed my undergarments and every curve. I would recommend this dress!

Loved the color of this dress!
First time using RTR and I will be a return customer. I am 5'6 about 152 pounds and a 36D. I went with the 8 long bc my heels were about 3 inches, if not a little higher. I loved the way the dress touched the ground and had a small train. It was so comfortable to wear. I was able to sit and eat comfortably at dinner. Dancing I did have to hold the dress up, but totally worth it. Would recommend this dress for sure!

Loved this dress just as much as when Bushnell wore it on the Bachelor!
This dress is really elegant and well made. It has multiple layers, fits really well, and has a nice little train in the back. The color is also really vibrant and awesome for spring/summer weddings. I'm 5'7 and wore 2.5" heels, and the 2L was just a smidge too long. With another inch or so, it would have been perfect. I loved this dress! The only real downside was that the layers made it very hot after hitting the dance floor.

Very sexy dress!
I was unable to wear this though I wish I could have! Dress was gorgeous and sexy. A little long though I have that problem no matter what. I ended up wearing my back up dress. I didn't have any spanx which is why I didn't wear this. This dress shows everything and we just got back from vacation so I had a little tummy when we got back and looked pregnant in it lol.

The perfect dress!
Throughout the night and following days I received many compliments. The fit was perfect and stretchy enough to where it wasn't super tight, but showed off your curves. Even with lots of dancing, the dress didn't get too hot and the long size was long enough to where I could wear flat sandals and get away with it. The small train was also super pretty, but I was nervous at some points that it would get ripped from getting stuck somewhere or being stepped on or dragged on the ground, but thankfully none of that was the case and it was perfect!
