Lots of compliments!

I loved this dress and got so many compliments! I ordered the 12 and the 14, and normally wear a 12 jeans, and size L top. I felt the 12 fit better, but I had zipper trouble with it, and wore the 14 instead. The 14 was a little too big up top at the bust and shoulders, but I did not want to try too hard to fix the zipper on the 12 and risk damaging it. So for that reason I am so happy that RTR sends a second size!! I was very comfortable and felt great in this dress. The lace is actually softer than I thought it would be. So don't worry about it being scratchy, it's not!!

looks beautiful, would you say it is white or off white? my daughter needs a white dress for graduation and I wonder if this will do the trick?

Fit true to size. I usually wear a 2 or 4. 2 would have been too small.

So nice I wore it twice

It requires a strapless, but you can get by with flesh tone bras. I normally wear a 4 but I have been indulging for the holidays so the 6 fit perfectly, my only complaint is that the waistline meets right at my bra line so it was a lil strangulating on my ribs. I wore it to Christmas dinner at the family home and to work as well. I would even consider it a nice quickie wedding dress.

Beautiful design but rigid material

I loved the design, especially the sleeves, but the fabric was very rigid so it felt very tight. Especially when you have an hourglass body. I would recommend sizing up.

Lace is off-white and kinda frumpy

work appropriate with cute sleeve cuff detail, but overall kinda blah. Maybe because of the off-white color.

This dress was beautiful. A little shorter than I felt comfortable wearing to my courthouse wedding. While the lace was beautiful, it just wasn’t me. The fit was nice.

I wore this dress for my winter bridal shower.

I usually wear between an 8-10 in dresses, so I went with the 10 first and couldn't get it zipped. I moved on to the 12 and it fit like a glove. The dress is comfortable and perfect for winter events where sleeves are needed. The material is heavy, and is definitely more of an ivory/eggshell color.

Favorite dress ever!

I wore this dress for my bridal shower and received a TON of compliments! I got the size 12 and 14 (wore the 14) and I'm glad I did - it runs very tight through the mid section where the waistband ribbon is, and around the bust. I do have a D cup bust (36D) and could have worn the 12 but it was just too tight on top. Definitely go with the larger size - I'm 173lbs, 5'6", and carry my weight in my mid section. Just loved this dress!

Beautiful bridal shower dress

I felt great in this dress and hated to send it back! The lace is absolutely beautiful. I am a 34A and could wear it with no bra. I ended up wearing the 6, because the 4 was a little tight around my waist. I wore this for my bridal shower, but it would also be a great second dress for a reception!

Amazing dress! So classy.

I wore this for my bridal shower and it was a hit! So classy and feminine - the faux neckline gives it a bit of a sexy edge, too. Would definitely recommend for brides-to-be for any pre-wedding events! The only reason I gave it a 4 star is because you can't wear it without a bra but the neckline was a lot lower than I thought and my strapless bra showed so I had to keep adjusting myself.

Sizing issue

The color is not white but more beige. 6 was too tight around the waist and 8 had a loose fit at the top and shoulders. Giving this dress 3 stars as neither size looked great

Wore to my rehearsal dinner. Received so many complements about the intricate details of this dress.

Fits true to size. I vary between an 8 and 10, wore a 10. It's a good length. The sleeves add a perfect flare to an otherwise timelessly elegant piece.

So many compliments and so comfortable!!!!!

This dress is stunning! I rented it for my engagement party and everyone complimented me all night! It is very bridal! The length of the dress and the sleeves were comfortable for a rainy February evening. I normally wear size 10/12 in dresses as I'm fortunate in the hips and thighs region. I ordered a 14 and 16 in this dress based on other reviews and ended up wearing the 16. The 14 fit, but would have required spanx and the arms were a little tight.

Wore to my rehearsal dinner in February!

Dress was perfect for a winter rehearsal dinner. I received lots of compliments. I wore it with black nylons and black heels. The dress fit me almost perfect. I decided to wear a padded nude bra instead of my regular strapless because my bust did not fill out the dress without the extra padding, and the straps were not noticeable. It was perfect for the occasion!

Courthouse Wedding

I wore this dress for my courthouse wedding! It is absolutely beautiful. The lace is intricate and gorgeous. I normally wear a 16 and needed to wear the 18W. I wore Spanx underneath as it was tight in the mid-section. You can wear any bra.

Bachelorette

I wore this for my bachelorette party and received many complements throughout the night. It was extremely comfortable and the lace detail on the sleeves was simply stunning. The sleeves were probably my favorite part about the whole dress, as it took the dress to the next level. While elegant the dress was also comfortable. The fit was perfect as it allowed room for dancing and walking around the city.

Great dress for bachelorette!

I'm tall but this wasn't too short, which is hard to find! The lace band hits at empire waist height and has no "give" when zipping up, so had to size up one size. Was the perfect mix of classy but sexy!

This dress was perfect for my bridal shower!

The dress runs a bit large on the top and small around the waist where the ribbon is. I wore one size larger than I usually do for this designer and it worked perfectly! The lace was comfortable and not itchy. Received many compliments, even some who thought it could be a wedding dress! Highly recommend.

This dress was too small for me to wear; I normally wear a 16, but I should have ordered one size bigger. However, it's a beautiful dress -- even prettier in person.

The lace detail on the neck and sleeves are so pretty and feminine without looking dated.

I wore this for my bridal shower and received many compliments! Like other reviews say, this runs small. I’m normally a dress size 8, but it was too tight in the arms and midsection, so I went with the 10. I’m 6 foot and this hit just above my knee, which is hard to find. The downside was when I sat down, my legs weren’t very covered. The material doesn’t give much, so I recommend getting a size up. L

Beautiful! Perfect fit and length. Perfect for a bridal shower.

Perfect fit, true to size. Great length on me, beautiful lace detail, and nice fabric. The lining in the front is a little low and showed my strapless bra slightly, but will be easy to correct when I wear it.

I wore this dress for my bridal shower and it was perfect!

I wore this dress for my bridal shower and it was great! I wore a size 2 and it was still a little large around the waist. The zipper was also tricky around the waist ribbon and it needed to be slightly forced to get past the seam. Aside from that I would rent this dress again for another event!

Perfect baptism dress

The fit was true to size. I have a large bust and I couldn't wear a bra due to the lace shoulders but the dress has nice lining and is formed in the chest, so this wasn't a problem. I felt both sexy and covered up because the lace shows some cleavage if you look closely, but I still felt comfortable in church. It was mid-thigh on me (5'9") and worked great with panty hose. I loved this dress, it was perfect. My measurements are 35-26-36 an a size 4 fit perfectly. I also tried on the size 6 and it was just a little big in the waist and didn't show much definition.

Wore this dress for my bridal shower. Perfect for a cool spring day. Received so many compliments!!

I sized up based on other reviews, and I'm glad I did because it fit really well. I wore a strapless bra with it, but I think a regular bra would be fine as the lace designs are pretty big. My only complaint would be that the lace around the neck did not lay right. Otherwise it was perfect.
