Luxurious and Fabulous Gown!

Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this gown to a black tie NYC wedding and it was awesome. I literally got complements all night from people I didn't even know. Overall, I truly loved this gown and felt like a movie star in it but a few notes to be aware of. The dress itself is a bit heavy but not unbareable. If you are bigger in the chest area definitely size up...Im a smaller B and it was very fitted. It was also too long...I'm 5'8 and even with 2 inch heels it was dragging all night. I actually like the look of it gathering on the floor but hard for dancing and stairs! I should have gone with the 6R instead of the 6L. The sparkle on the dress was beautiful but not too much, classy but with some pizzazz!

Dress was a bit long and Im a tall girl. Did have some trouble with the zipper like I read in other reviews! Took 2 people and some patience...but once it got zipped up it was amazing!!! Loved the dress!! Felt very glamerous is in!! Sequins under the arms started to give a bit of rash by end of the night..but small price to pay! :)

Wore this to a wedding and felt very glamourous! The dress is a bit heavy, but stayed in place all night. The length was perfect, just hit the floor (I'm 5'7 and wore 2 inch heels). Great for a fall/winter celebration!

First time that I don't have to pull up a strapless dress all night long. Thats usually a huge problem for me because I have a big bust. I danced all night long and the dress stayed in place. However, it does run a little long, but I didn't care I felt that it gave a dramatic look! ( I wore 4.5 inch heels ) It was STUNNING!! The picture is really dark, wish I had a better one. TRUE TO SIZE!!!

I hadn't seen my date in 12 years and we received so many complements from strangers.

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I normally wear a size 6 in day-to-day dresses, however, the size 8 fit me best in this formal. Having the free option to select a size up was perfect. The corset was perfect and stayed up the entire night. The zipper had some kinks prior to putting the dress on. However, The length of the dress was perfect and wasn't heavy. I'm 5'8." It was a true comfortable fit and would highly recommend this dress to anyone. Very classic, yet sexy!

Made this tomboy feel pretty darn glitzy.

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Very nice fit for pear shapes. The bust, however, is quite big -- I am a solid C cup and felt like it was too big in the chest. Also, on this particular dress, the edge by the bust was curling out a little bit so that the rubberized edge didn't sit on my skin. You can see the tips of the loops at the top of the cups, which I kept tucking under but they kept untucking the whole night long. I think the height estimates are a little off -- I am 5'3" and wore this with Betsey Johnson platform heels (considerably higher than 3") and it was still dragging on the ground. First time with RTR and will definitely be back -- great experience.

Gorgeous, elegant and memorable without being an obvious look at me dress!

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
At a party with several hundred people, a gay man walked straight up to me and said, if I could be any girl here, it would be you. Priceless!! Received tons of compliments on this dress! Was my first RTR experience and I will definitely be back! Can sometimes wear a 6 (ordered another dress by same designer -Glitz Gown, 6 fit perfectly), but this one was not even close, 8 worked perfectly. Very secure, could hold my arms up and jump, and the dress didn't budge! No room for a bra, but bust of dress is very forgiving. Wore heavy chunky jewelry to make it less serious, dress was comfortable all night. Heavy, but not bad, you will not be able to get on by yourself!! No joke!

Amazing Dress, So Many Compliments!!!

Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
Wore this dress for a black tie event. Ordered the 4L, but wore 3 inch heels, so the dress touched the floor. Great for women with a high waist. The top of the dress really holds "the girls" in well. I felt super confident in this dress all night and received so many compliments from so many people that I did not know. I would totally rent this dress again.

This gown was GORGEOUS, I felt so beautiful and I got so many compliments the whole night.

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: Small

I recommend not to wear a bra because the dress is corset like and it can be tight. I ordered a 4R & 6R and ended up wearing a 6R because it was veery tight. Overall the dress was super comfortable I danced in it the whole night.

This dress was absolutely stunning! Was so excited to try it on when I got home, but sadly it did not fit. It was a bit small! But it's okay. This dress is just beautiful. The only thing I could say is that the dress is kind of heavy and long even with the regular.

When Derby comes to town, I recommend RTR to all my friends. This dress made me feel fun for a small gathering at a friend's house. I love the sparkle and flow of this dress. A little itchy under the arms due to the sequin but nothing too unbearable. And I didn't have to wear heels!

This dress was perfect for being onstage, crowning girls at a pageant. My only complaints are that it isn't as flattering as it may seem, the top fits a tad strange, and that the top of the dress rolls a little bit, if that makes any sense?

This was a beautiful gown but sadly it did not fit in either size. I ended up purchasing a dress from Cache in the same size as I had ordered so I'm not sure if this designer is just not for me. I have broad shoulders and wear a 36 DDD. But hopefully this dress will fit you--I'd definitely recommend it to some of my more petite friends!

I wore this dress for a black tie ball. I normally wear a 12 but I am busty and had trouble getting the smaller size zipped. The dress was super flattering and very elegant. My only complaint was that the elastic hem was worn around the top of the dress and slipped a bit, although it was not enough of a problem for me to return the gown!

I loved this dress! It was sparkly (all sequins) and fit so well. The only reason I didn't wear it was because I also rented the Nicole Miller "Tempted By You" gown and became obsessed with that one. But I was sad that I had to pass up a night with this one too! It was beautiful, well-made and fit my small frame perfectly. If you have a small chest (like I do) you may not even need a bra with this one. It was beautiful.

Three different people came up to tell me that my dress was beautiful. It was sparkling all night!

Size worn: 16R
Overall fit: True to Size

I wore this dress, 26 weeks pregnant, to a formal wedding. Pre-pregnancy I was in a size 14, so I had a size 14 and 16 sent. I ended up wearing the size 16 so that I would be more comfortable. It was a little big in the bust, but fit perfectly everywhere else. I was nervous that the length would be short because of my height, and the dress would be pulled up a little because of my bump, but it was perfect. I wore 2" heels and the dress was the perfect length, I'm glad I didn't get it in long.

Great dress, didn't end up wearing it

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I got this dress as one of many back ups for prom. The dress looked great on and felt nice, but I decided to go with the Genevieve Gown by Erin Fetherston because of the pop of color. My date was wearing navy and so I didn't want to wear black and I wanted to stand out. The dress was a good length with about 5 inch heels. It was a tad big on me which probably wouldn't have been a problem but I wanted the dress to fit perfectly so that it wouldn't slide down as I danced. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to go for a more flashy black gown.

- If you're larger than a C definitely size up -- the bust was very tight (hard to get on, but then once was on stayed put so what was a plus) - I wore a 2-inch heel since the dress was long and I could get away with it...would also work with a 3inch heel. If yo'ure taller than 5'8" and are planning to do 3+ inches I might go for the longer version of the dress

too big and too small in all the wrong places

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
Ordered 2 sizes. they were basically the same in the chest/zipper area. I am 6' tall and wear a small C. With no bra and my breasts completely smashed down, my husband still couldn't zip it - in either size. The sizes were basically the same. The bottom half ( where I normally need extra room for the hips) was hugely oversized. Too much fabric on the bottom - which made it look frumpy. Not flattering! I think it would look good for a true 2-6 sized woman, But as the sizes go up, the added on the fabric which makes your bottom half look wider. Had to send them both back - wearing something I own because I didn't have time to swap.

Beautiful dress, perfect for a fun, black-tie event

Size worn: 2P
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Rented this dress after trying on a similar style in a different color - love the fit, very flattering silhouette! It's definitely a bit heavier due to all the sequins, but the boning in the bodice keeps the dress up well. Also, the sequins lay pretty flat on the dress, so I didn't have to worry about catching my dress on someone's purse, car doors, etc. The dress runs long - I'm 5'4" and I wore 4" heels with the Petite length, so definitely order on the shorter side if you're unsure. Additionally, the petite sizing isn't true petite - I tried on 2R as well and the dress fit the same except for the length. Overall, was very pleased with this dress!

Fit true to size, heavy and wonderfully made. This was my back up dress but I didn't have to use it. It was a little big because I wear a 10r but I got the 12r to be safe. It was perfect length, just hit the floor with my 3inch heels on. I didn't wear this dress because the other one I choose showed off my shape and both my husband and daughter said no to this one. They probably may have liked it better if I would have had the 10.

Size worn: 4R

The picture for this dress is very misleading; it made it seem more shiny and sleek than sparkly. I was very disappointed when I took this out of the box because I thought it was going to be much shinier intead or sequins. Also, the zipper on this dress is nearly impossible to zip up even when the dress isn't on. You have to really wrestle with the zipper on this dress especially on the bust because the bust runs very very small. I ordered this and another dress for my event and I definitely will be wearing the other one!

Runs small, draws attention to hips and makes your arms irritated.

This dress ran very small. I am usually between a 4 and a 6 but couldn't get the 6 to zip. If I had worn it, I know the fabric would have irritated my arms. Also, the band and fabric really drew attention to my hips (which I would classify as average) in an unflattering way.

If you're tall this dress is for you! I ordered the extra long because I am 6'1 and it was WAY too long (Maybe 4+ inches of extra material at the bottom). I contacted rent the runway and ordered just a long and it was perfect. It's a little difficult to zip, but otherwise a great dress!
