Simple and elegant!
I LOVED this dress. By far my most favorite that I have ever rented from RTR. The overall reviews showed that the dress ran a little large since it is very stretchy. I normally wear a 6, and fit almost perfectly into the 4, the bust was a little large - but I don't have much to work with. ;) so that's normally the case lol. The mermaid fit is completely flattering and I felt like a princess all night!

Got lots of compliments, I felt the most beautiful I ever have.
Wore this to my sorority's formal and got lots of compliments, I even got told I looked like a model! Really loved the dress it made me look really curvy. I'm usually a small/2 in dresses so I decided to order the 0R and 2R since the petite ones weren't available for the day I needed. I ended up wearing the 0R but it still fit a little big, I'm not very busty though so that could've been the issue. I'm 5'2 and wore 4 inch heels, it was slightly too long. I had a great rental experience, got it delivered 2 days before the event and returned it the day after. Overall I loved the dress and felt great in it.

Very sexy!
The got the 4R and 4L. Ended up wearing the 4L with 3 in heels. With the 4R I could still see my shoes. The dress is very flattering. I am heavy chested (34DD) and it was super tight there, but it was fine because it stayed put throughout the night. Hugs all your curves!

Million dollar dress!
I felt amazing in this dress! The top was pretty loose, even for my 36D size, but the length and everything else was great. I probably could have gotten away with the 6.

I wear jeans, plain shirts, no makeup to work every day. The guys were floored by me in this dress!
Fit amazingly well! Soo comfortable, too. Wore 4" heels. Covered my shoes, but easy to walk in. Bust was just a tad looser than I would have liked, but not terribly so. I would have gotten cutlets if I'd had time. Love how it hugged my curves - the thick fabric kept me from feeling self conscious about that! Such a great dress.

Gorgeous dress!
The only reason I didn't end up wearing this is because I picked another dress. I was hesitant to rent this because all of the reviews said that it runs large in the chest. I'm a size 0/32A and I didn't have any problems in the chest area. It fit perfect and when I tried it on I wasn't having to pull it up or anything.

Beautiful Dress!
All of the reviews were so helpful for finding the right dress for me. The dress was a perfect fit. I also agree with other reviews on the top being a tad big, but still worked out just fine. I received many compliments and could even dance in it. Very thick, heavy, stretchy fabric, which is what made the dress fit so well. No problems with shipping and dress came perfectly packaged. I would definitely use RTR again. Great experience!!

I felt like a movie star all night!
This dress is gorgeous! I wore it at my company's formal Christmas party and I rocked it! Got many compliments on it and it fit perfect! May have been a little big up top, but you couldn't tell at all. It's snug so it wasn't going anywhere but it was comfortable enough to dance on the dance floor or go to the bathroom with no issue. This was my first time renting and I will probably rent again.

Many compliments and chances to share what kind of dress I was wearing!
The fit was snug in a good way. Made me feel glamorous. The only con was it had a tendency to twist around on me. That could just be my body type or the way I move.

Loved this dress for a dinner gala!
I wish I could purchase this dress! What a fabulously constructed dress. It was perfect for a formal dinner gala I attended last Valentine's Day. I will say, I'm usually a 4/6, but I went up a size due to some of the reviews. I wore the 6, but I could have worn the 4. The sizes were pretty close, but the 6 was a little longer for my shoes, but it was a tad loose in the top. I think it was mainly due to multiple people wearing it. Overall, I felt so glamorous and pretty in this, and I would definitely recommend it!

Amazing and flattering
It is very tight but fit beautifully . I have DD so for those busty ladies, don't let this discourage you. You don't really need a bra it holds you up, just take a deep breath first because you're not unzipping it until you get home unless you have a bathroom buddy!

I didn't end up wearing this dress.
The fit was nice, and the fabric was great at camouflaging any figure flaws. With that said, I couldn't get myself to wear the dress out. I am not a fan of the side panels and it was just too stuffy of a dress for me to wear. I guess, in my mind, the style and make comes off as dated and safe.

The dress is gorgeous and snugs the body in the most flattering way. I'm 5'6" and weigh 115 lbs
The dress is a little heavy but only because it's such a nicely made dress, far different than cheap cocktail dresses that I'm used to. Hugs the curves and is a good length ( not too long). I'm 5'6" and wore 2 inch heels and the hem barely swept the floor as I walked.

Gorgeous material and fit-perfect for a formal affair!
This dress is a show-stopper! Hugs your body in all the right places and is quite comfortable. I wore the 0L, but I feel the 2L would have been a better fit in the bust area. This dress is super flattering and not too tight in the hip/waist area. One of my favorites!

I felt like a model!
I was receiving compliments all night long! This dress hugged my curves in all the right places, yet it didn't feel constricting at all. It's very simple, yet makes such a statement. I'm 5'6, and the length was perfect to where I could get away with wearing flats (thank God cause I cannot walk in heels lol!). I would 100% rent from this company again. Thanks RTR, for making my night one I'll always remember!

It fit like a glove! I got the 4R. I'm 5'5" and with 5" heels it hit just above the floor. Very thick, yet stretchy fabric. There is no option to select for my accurate bust size - 34ddd.

The bottom of the dress is stunning
The dress is so flattering and classy. I wore it with big statement earrings. Fair warning though- the boning hurts and stuck into my back.

This Dress makes you feel beautiful!
Loved this dress! So did my boyfriend! It fits great and works well for girls with curves! The dress material is comfortable however my biggest complaint is the boning was sticking out and it felt like needles. I wish RTR would have stitched it back in prior to sending it out. I put some band aids to stop them from poking me but my boyfriend kept having to fix it for me all night. Otherwise, highly recommend this dress. It is definitely a sexy dress! Fits true to size. I ordered the 4 and 6 just in case and the 4 fit perfect! A bra is not necessary either. It fits tight enough to hold them in.

This dress was absolute PERFECTION in every way!
I am completely obsessed with this dress and would love to rent again! It was a back up dress I had to pick out 2 days before the event bc my original dress was damaged and there weren't a lot of size/dress options that close in. However, customer service was amazing and even though I was nervous about the 0l being too long (I'm 5'6") and possibly too small (I'm 126 lbs), it was perfection. I got so many compliments on the dress and truly felt like a star! The fit was great! Very form fitting, but in a flattering way. I didn't have to wear a bra, which was a plus! I am glad I got the long bc I couldn't have worn more than a 3" heel without my shoes totally showing- which I hate. It was comfortable (as far as formal gowns go at least) and I wore it to a super long event without getting annoyed or having to pull it up or mess with it. I HIGHLY recommend renting this dress! Loved it! Thanks RTR!

A little stretchy, so I could have gone a size smaller and then wouldn't have been pulling it up all night. But not the dress or RTR fault. It's a great dress!

Feeling so glamorous all night!
I wasn't in love with this dress at first. The top was structured with a bit of a boning effect which actually was "bunchy". It felt like I had to keep pulling the dress down to sit properly on my frame. As I worn the dress, however, I did fall in love with it. It was very comfortable, flattering, elegant, sexy...! I wore 2 inch heals that were perfect for the length of the gown. I will definitely rent from RTR again but maybe I'll go for something a little more outside the box. This was a very safe pick for me! Worth every dollar spent. The experience renting and returning was easy and fun!

This dress is the epitome of elegance & glamour!
I wore this dress to a black tie event. It was a very exclusive preview party for the Philadelphia Flower Show. The night was incredible and this dress played a major roll in making it magical! My only con would be that the top of this dress was a bit wide, and I caught myself needing to pull it up a few times throughout the night. I wear a 32 D and I had an amazing strapless bra that helped with that issue some. Overall, however, it was stunning and such a classic & timeless gown!

My favorite dress of all time!!!
First of all, RTR gratefully sent me this dress last minute because I found out days before my event that another coworker was wearing the same dress I originally ordered! Their customer service ceases to astound me! Secondly, this is the most incredible dress I have ever worn. It is absolutely perfect for my shape, and incredibly slimming. I gained a little weight over the past year, and this dress made me feel gorgeous. I received so many compliments and wished I didn't have to send it back. I tried to find this dress at its retail price somewhere, but it's all out. I will probably order it again since I can dress it up differently. Perfect, perfect 10!!!

Dress was fabulous!
This dress gave me curves even though I'm pretty slender. It looked great and I got tons of compliments. I did have to wear two bras with it because I didn't fill it out completely in the bust, but it stayed up well. There's not very much stretch to the fabric but it was still form fitting, flattering, and comfortable.

Stunning, sophisticated & classy
I wore this gown to a black tie wedding in Newport. The dress has a subtle sheer overlay which makes the bottom more full. You also can't really tell from the photo, but it has somewhat of a slight train & is swishy when you walk.. This made the dress heavier than I anticipated. If the dress weren't already a little large I wouldn't have minded the weight of the dress. However, because it was bigger in the chest the weight pulled it down. I found myself pulling up the top more often then I would have liked. Even though it was a little big I still loved the style of the dress.... With a little tightening it would have been flawless!

Love a simple, classic dress
The dress definitely had a great structure and definitely gave my body a good shape without having to wear spanx or anything. I'm 5'9 and was able to wear flats (for comfort) and the length was perfect in the front and the tail only slightly dragged. The only con was that the boning down the front right side poked out through the fabric and after dancing in the dress for 6+ hours I had a big red abrasion on my right waist where it was rubbing all night. Otherwise, I'm so happy with the purchase and would definitely wear it again!

This was my back up dress,my original dress didnt fit. Rtr was great about over night in me this one
This dress runs very large. I would suggest ordering a size down or two for your backup. I got many compliments on this dress and felt comfortable in it. Not the best dress for smaller chested girls and as i was dancing all night, I kept pulling it up. Also, my dress had the inner corset material poking out, which kept sticking me in my side. A little duct tape did the trick though! Overall, lovely dress.

Nondescript dress
I loved the Jessica Rabbit vibe of this dress in the picture on RTR, coupled with the soft dreamy quality of the skirt. However once I got it and tried it on, it was just a nondescript black strapless dress. It wasn't "bad", but there was nothing special about it. It was definitely a "blend into the crowd" dress.

This is a great classic safe dress. It was my first Rent the Runway and I could not be happier.
I am a tall size 4. I wore the 4L which was a little long but with heals it worked great. The top was a little stretched out, but not even to matter.

Very easy!!
I ordered both the 4L and 6L. The 4 fit me, but it was a little snug in the tummy area. The 6 was a little big in the bust area but I just wore a padded bra and it was perfect! The dress is very elegant and flattering. I am 5'7 and the dress was perfect length with 3 in heels. I was really nervous renting a dress but it was easy and after reading reviews I definitely picked the right dress!

Terrified it wasn't going to come but they sent me a back up just in case
It was a little bit big on top but I wore two bras. The 0 would have fit better but the 2 wasn't falling off either. Just an little loose.

So many compliments!
This dress is as gorgeous as all the other reviews state. I wore it to my senior prom and the dress stood out as classy and elegant in a sea of colors and embellishments. The dress hugs every curve (never felt so skinny in my life!) and is comfortable to move in. I did have to wear 2 strapless bras to fill out to bust and I also had to pull it up couple times during the night. I wore 3 inch heels and the length was perfect, but 2-4 inch heels also worked because of the tool at the bottom. Overall, incredible dress. Just wait for the compliments to pour in!
