Ordered wrong size and rr was so great getting me a dress for my event on time.
Listen to the reviews. The 4 fit perfect but was too short to wear with heels. I am 5ft 4 but accidentally ordered the regular not the long. Will order this for a formal event in the future. The dress is more beautiful in person.

Very elegant!
I rented the regular and as you can see, my shoes were slightly visible. This wasn't important to me but should be considered. I'm 5'4" and wore 2 1/2 inch heels so if you're any taller get the long. The fabric had stretch which is essential for my shape which is very much a pear and curvy. Size 12 Dresses are usually snug on the bottom half and roomy on the top and this was no different so I'd call it true to size. It was comfortable and very sparkly even in the dark. If you're looking for something conservative yet fun I'd recommend.

Great dress! The color is stunning. His is definitely a glamorous showstopper. I was very pleased.
Excellent stretch to ensure a great fit! I'm glad I got two sizes for length because there was a significant difference.

Holiday Party success
I rented this for my office holiday party. I wanted to look great but didn't want to be too exposed so this dress was ideal. There were lots of lovely complements but no co-workers talking to my cleavage. The dress runs large. I am usually a size 4 but the size 2 was a much better fit. The 2R is a bit longer than I thought. I was wearing 3.5 inch heels and the hew touched the floor so I made sure that I had a hand on it when I was walking. All in all I think this was a great dress and I felt wonderful in it.

Overall great dress
This dress was gorgeous. The color was perfect. The seams where the sequin panels were sewn together were well hidden. Overall a good fit. Would have needed a size 0 because the 2 was a bit large.

My first RTR experience was a 5-star moment!
I read a bunch of reviews & realized as someone who likes to wear high heels I needed to get the long. I chose an 8 b/c I have tried on David Meister and he runs big on me. I wore 3" heals making me 5"7 and my toes just showed. I could wear a regular strapless bra and it showed off my curves beautifully. It is very comfortable & fun. I could just enjoy myself & not have to worry about tugging here & tripping there. It's perfect for any body type. I can see why it's so popular. I thank the stylists & the reviewers for helping me this first go around. I will be back!

How perfectly this dress fit, from length to bust to waist! So glam, I felt fabulous!
I loved how this dress fit overall! It didn't hurt that I fit into the 4 when I normally wear a 6, and this was perfect for disguising the fact that I am not in the shape I'd like to be in, particularly in the stomach/upper thigh area. Also, as a shorter woman, I was able to wear heels of a reasonable height (approx. 2") - usually I have to practically wear stilts or have dresses altered because they are so long. Also, I often have to wear larger sizes just to accommodate my bustiness, and this dress fit perfectly in that area (the little bit of stretch it has in it is great). David Meister clearly appreciates curvy women, and I in turn appreciate him!

Loved it!
The dress was perfect for the Marine Corps Birthday Ball. I'm 5'1" and with 4" heels in the size 4 dress the length was perfect. The bust doesn't have a lot of shaping to it so I wore the sticky type bra and it work great. I seem to be a size 6 in the other dresses from RTR but the 4 fit much better than the 6. Loved my experience with RTR!

Gorgeous dress! Compliments after compliments!
I rented this dress for my husband's company's holiday party. Being my height, I was worried about the length, but with my heels, it was perfect! I usually wear size 4 and sometimes 2, but size4 was way too big and even 2 was a bit loose. But the dress was comfortable and beautiful, I got a lot of compliments all night long! I will sure to rent again from RTR. You guys never disappoint me!

tons of compliments!
I loved this dress immediately! I wore it to my senior prom, the theme of which was "under the sea", so I thought this dress worked perfectly because it really ripples like water when you walk. It was very heavy when I took it out of the bag so I assumed it would be a pain to wear, but it wasn't at all. It's very durable (my boyfriend and I rode a tandem bicycle to prom and this held up magnificently! Not a sequin out of place, haha). It does run a bit large. I ordered the size 4R and 6R as my backup, but I think the 2R would have fit me a bit better, as it was a bit baggy on the top. Anyways, like I said: compliment after compliment! A very beautiful dress :o) The rental and return process was super simple and worked well, so I'll be renting again for sure!

Beautiful color, but unflattering fit.
The deep midnight blue was breathtaking; it shimmered and changed shades in the light. However the fit was rather loose and overall rather baggy in places that shouldn't be loose (like the backside). This was my backup dress, so I ended up not wearing it.

This dress is a much brighter blue than the picture shows. It was a little to large on the top, chest area, for me.

"That dress really stands out in a crowd!"
Unusually a size 4 and the 2 long fit perfectly. Photos do not do it justice, it is stunning in person and turns heads. Was the perfect choice for an Air Force ball. I received compliment after compliment from men and women, but the best was a gentleman who went out of his way because he just had to tell me that I really stood out in a crowd, in a good way. My husband standing right next to me agreed. I have never seen a man so genuinely overwhelmed by a dress! The sequins give it a very expensive look, but don't add weight. I was surprised how light and comfortable it was. It managed to be sexy yet classy - a winning combination!

I was unable to wear this dress because it ran too large, by far.
This was probably my most disappointing RTR experience. I called a stylist to talk about the fit of the dress and make sure that there was a good chance it would fit me. I was assured that it ran small and that it'd be great. Well, as it turned out, the top of the dress was so baggy that the neckline hit below the girls. Unbelievable. The next morning, a scramble to find a mailbox to drop off this dress (the only way to not get charged for a rental is to return it right away--and they mean RIGHT away). If you are very petite, don't chance it with the long dresses here. I still gave the dress three stars because it was pretty, and I don't want to blame the dress for the bad advice I got over the phone. I gave my measurements and everything, and it was like the MO was just to reassure me that it would work--instead of actually thinking about it critically.

Classy AND Sexy!
This dress fit perfectly - even on my petite frame - and was forgiving enough to allow a big dinner and dancing afterward. I was worried about length and wore 4" heels, but I definitely could have gone shorter. I was also thinking the all-over sequins may be too much for the conservative ball I was attending, but it was fine. The navy color and sophisticated style of the dress balanced the sparkle!

Glimmering and Glamorous
I've never worn a head-to-toe sequined dress before and wanted to try it! I was very happy with the old-Hollywood look that obscured my extra 10 lbs. quite well. I have a 32D chest and the 4R I wore (the smaller of the two dresses I requested) fit with room to spare. I would say this is a good look for hourglass figures. The length was perfect for me in 3 inch heels.

Unflattering
Unfortunately this dress did not look nice on me. I am relatively small-waisted, and the cut made me look like I had a belly pooch. The whole thing was just off. I rented a size 4, and I kept thinking it would look better if my body was just elongated. Also the top is cut really high, was just not flattering on my athletic arms. All the ladies in these reviews look fabulous, but the dress just didn't work for me!

Worth it for the endless stream of compliments alone
I loved this dress at first sight on Rent the Runway and it disappoint. It was comfortable and so glamorous. Perfect strangers said "You look beautiful" when I walked by and women were ooh-ing and aah-ing at the dress. The fit was smooth and flattering without being cheap or clingy. I wore the 6 long, which was just long enough in my 3 1/2" heels. I'm 5'9". Highly recommended!

Great Dress
Got this dress to go to the Marine Ball. Got a size 4R and 6R as the backup size and they were both too big, but I was able to wear the 4 it just fit looser than the picture. It's a beautiful dress and comfortable! The regular was also a little short. I'm 5'4 and couldn't wear heels with the dress, so if you want to wear heels get a long.

I LOVED this dress!
I am 5'5 and i got it in the long... But even with wearing 5 in heels is was still way to long! I have a tiny waist so it was a little large. But i have a big bust and it worked perfectly! Loved this dress! SO pretty and got tons of compliments of it!

When everyone turned and stared, I knew it was me in that dress that floored them :)
I looked fabulous in this gown. My husband and I begin to turn heads as soon as we walked into the venue. I felt glamorous. As far as the gown's fit goes, if I had gotten a size 4L instead of the 6L it would have hugged my body flawlessly. But it still looked gorgeous on. I am very pleased overall with my choice and I thank the creators of RTR for giving me the opportunity to rent this beautiful gown and for creating this site. Why rent a gown you would only where once?!?

This was the first time I used RTR and I am in love with it! Will definitely use again!
This dress was fabulous and I got a ton of compliments at my formal dinner for work! It did run a little short/snug, I'm typically a 4 and wore the 6R so I could get a little extra length and be more comfortable. I wore 2 1/2" heels and the dress didn't quite hit the floor. Overall - amazing dress and super easy process. I rented for the wrong week on accident, and RTR updated my order no problem - great customer service.

Perfect dress for an inaugural celebration.
The dress fits like a dream and is wonderfully comfortable as well as beautiful. It's a very classic fit - figure flattering and sexy without revealing too much. As others have noted, the long is the best bet if you're 5'4" or taller, plan to wear heels and prefer a gown that hits the floor rather than your ankles.

I received so many compliments from men and women on how classy and elegant I look.
I usually wear a size 12 but I am short so I was worried. I wanted to order a 10L and a 10R after reading the reviews but the 10L was unavailable. I am so glad that I at least able to get the 10R because the 12R would have been too big. I have a small waist and the dress accentuated that asset. I am a 34DD which made me nervous but the dress fit like a glove. It was amazing. Being 5'2'' I really didnt want my shoes to show but it was ok. I think the 10L would have been too long because my heels were only about 3''.

I didn't wear the dress.
The dress is really short, I am 5"7 and the size 12 barely hit my ankles. It fit much smaller than the other reviews stated. It was also much more tight and form-fitting than I thought it would be. I was very underwhelmed with this dress.

Great dress, fit like a glove, although a little too wrinkled from thigh level to bottom. I ordered the length that was suggested for my height (regular) but should have order the long, the bottom landed at my ankles. This was a black tie event, so I needed it to be floor length. I had a back up dress and wore that instead. I ordered the Elizabeth Cole earrings, and the Chamak By Priya Kakkar 2 bangle set...GORGEOUS and elegant. The Earrings weren't heavy or too big. Both added the right amount of sparkle and style to my one shoulder neckline dress.

I tried this exact dress on in Bloomingdales, the 4R and it was much longer than the dress I rented. The 4R was about 5 inches shorter than the store dress and showed my shoes (it was like it was hemmed for someone shorter). But other than that, the dress fit perfect and I got lots of compliments! If you are 5'5'' or taller, and plan on wearing any heel length, get the long length in this dress.

This dress looked amazing!! I got lots of rave reviews! I got size 2 and 4. I ended up wearing the size 2. I weigh 127 pounds. The arm hole was a little tight and itchy from the sequins but manageable. I got the long size and it fit perfect with 2 inch heels. Very nice dress.

At my height, the 8L was just above the floor in two inch heels. That sad the dress is beautiful. It's definitely a stand out. If you on the fence about this dress, go for it! It's a great choice.

Gorgeous dress. I didn't end up wearing it to the event as the back up that I ordered fit better, but I will try ordering this again. I was sent the 10L, which was just a bit too long on my 5'8" frame, even with 4" heels. I'll order the 10R next time.

Loved the dress!! I'm 5'9" weigh 150 and the 8 fit perfectly. The length was perfect too while wearing 3" heels. When the dress arrived it was very wrinkled - had to steam it from the inside out. Sequins kind of hurt under the arm but it was totally worth it when I received at least 30 compliments. Really! It's a winner!

This dress is just gorgeous. I ordered the 4 & 6. Ended up wearing the 4, as the 6 was a little loose around the bust, but I do not have a large chest. Received many compliments. the fabric is soft and glossy. i wore 3" heels and the long length fitted perfectly. Front is very flattering to the stomach. Just lovely.

I was walking across the ballroom and a woman literally stopped her friends, pointed and said WOW look at her. Awesome feeling.
I wore this to the Marine Corps Ball and let me say, the picture does NOT do it justice. I am 5'5" about 128 pounds with a bigger chest and little waist and the 2L fit PERFECTLY with about 4 inch heels (So I was 5'9" and the dress was skimming the floor, not dragging at all) The color is incredible in person, and if you get the right size it fits like a GLOVE. So amazing. All night as I was walking past people I was hearing "WOW. Look at HER dress". Amazing!!
