The customer service is impeccable. They stand true to their word!

This dress is so flattering. Accentuates the positives and conceals the trouble areas. The fit was great and true to size. Perfect for any shape. I received so many compliments. I wore this dress to a Mardi Gras Ball, which also fell on my birthday. I felt like the Queen of the Ball. It was hard to send this dress back!

The perfect dress and great customer service!!

Fit was great! I could of taken a size down for a tighter fit around the waist but it fit well in the bust-I'm a 34D . The length was perfect for my 5'11" frame. I did wear 2" heels. And the dress was still long enough! I felt like the bell of the ball! A very elegant and comfortable dress! Wish I could if kept it!

I received so many comments and it photographs perfectly!

I would say the gown runs true to size to slightly small. I was able to wear the size 12 in the other gowns sent, but this one fit like a glove in a 14. It was extremely flattering and super comfortable. Rent the runway went above and beyond when my original dress arrived and didn't fit. They sent me the options I asked for and even threw in some extras for me to try. This dress was absolutely stunning and head turning! Thank you!

Complements and smiles galore!

The dress was elegant and sexy. The top was a bit tight (34D) but the remainder of the dress fit with some breathing room. The tulle over the shoulder was a nice way to cover my cleavage yet give a hint of skin.

Beautiful dress!

This dress was not my first pic but it turned out perfect for my event. This dress was a little tight in the bust for me, but I made it work. I am 5"8 with flats this dress would have been the perfect length. I know now I will need a long in gowns on RTR! Live the customer service with RTR!!

Omg I absolutely loved this dress I received so many compliments from so many people.

Everyone wanted to take pictures with me as if I was a celebrity. I felt absolutely beautiful. My husband couldn't keep his hands off of me :-) it truly hugs your curves all in the right places.

True to petite sizing!

It is a curvy number for sure! Great to accentuate hourglass figures but not at all forgiving on the tummy. I'm 5'1" and the 4P fit but was perhaps a little too short with 3" heels. The 2R worked lengthwise but would close over my 34C chest. Pretty but didn't do the trick.

So many compliments on this dress. I felt like a princess!

The fit is true to size through the hips but I would say it runs snug through the rib cage and bust area. I wear a 34D bra and could only zip this dress without it. After zipping however, it looked lovely. Regular Length perfect for 3 1/2 inch heels on me and I'm just about 5'3''. Very happy with the earrings that I also rented from RTR.

This was shipped to me overnight after my original selection didn't work. Happy with the service!

Fabric doesn't give so make sure you go a size up if you are busty. My husband worked a small miracle to zip it up at the top (it fit just fine in the waist). It was very easy to wear - no bra needed because it was so tight. Received compliments. Flattering fit.

Glamorous!

Bodice is snug but comfortable. If you are muscular and small chested like me, don't assume you can get away with a small size due to a small bust! Perfect length for 3 inch heels. I'm 5'5" and it just swept the ground.

Best gown that I've rented yet from RTR

This dress didn't have my normal size which is an 8L. That size would've fit me perfectly but I had to settle for the 10L. It was roomy in the body and hips but was perfect in the bust...I'm a 36C. The dress has beautiful details and is a classic dress with a few modern surprises. The lace underlay adds a touch of elegance and the asymmetrical tulle portion added drama. For anyone over 5'8" definitely get a long. You won't be disappointed with this dress.

Lovely gown

I absolutely loved the cut and fit of the dress. I was able to go bra less because the dress fitted firmly around the bust and hips. My only issue was the dress was too long for my height.

Came in a day before it was supposed to, which I appreciated very much !

Runs smaller in size I'm usually a size 8 and I used the size 10...... The zipper is a little difficult but other than that, it's a beautiful dress.

Stunning

Bust is a tight fit if you have a larger chest (friend here is cup size C) making it flatter and spill into mesh area. Long size was a little short (friend is 5'10") so heals were out of the question.

So galmorous! Red carpet for sure!!!

This dress is great for a pear shape! The sheer one shoulder is complimentary to a small bust. It fits like a glove in the waist and hips and was the perfect length for my height! Would definitely rent it again!! Great customer service as well!!!

Classic look!

I ordered a sz 6 and 8, and ended up wearing the larger size as the dress ran maybe a size smaller than your normal dress size. I'm very hippy so found the dress to fit my hips better in that area vs the top. Overall, received many compliments and the look was a classic one for a black tie wedding.

This dress was perfect for the FLOTUS look I was going for. I wore it to a black tie wedding.

I originally ordered an 8R and a 10R as a backup because I usually wear a size 8. The 10R fit better but was too short for a floor length gown. I rush ordered a 10L and that worked perfectly. If you have a larger chest, definitely order a size larger than what you typically wear.

This dress is so glamorous and I love the way it hugs my curves! Endless compliments!

Snug fit but in the best way possible, holds up very well. Just be careful of the length and your choice in heels! My heels had a strap and the metal clasp kept getting Caught in the dress

Loads of compliments and feeling like royalty!

Length was perfect for my 5'9" height along with three inch heels. The size 6 was definitely snug for my 34 D bust, especially ribcage area. I ended up needing a spanx undergarment to cinch myself in a centimeter, which then made it perfect. On a cold, snowy evening this was a warm dress for dinner and dancing.

I am usually a 8 in dresses, I ordered this dress in a 8 and 10.... The 10 was a better fit. Dress runs a little in the smaller side...

G.LA.M.O.R-OUS

Like others have said the upper portion runs small so I ended up wearing the larger, back up size. It was disappointing as the smaller size 6 fit my curves so beautifully. If you have swimmers shoulders like me size up. The long was the perfect length for my 3 inch heels. If you're over 5'8 and plan to wear heels order the long.

Pretty dress but did not wear it

This dress is beautiful but a hassle to get in and maneuver around. It definitely runs small so I got a 4 and a 6 and the 4 wouldn't even zip. I loved the back view of this dress but the tulle strap had a tear in it. Also with all the extra fabric I felt like it wasn't a slimming dress for me.

Was first choice, but didn't end up wearing

I was really sad when trying this dress on because I was so excited to wear it to the Marine Corps ball, but it didn't live up to my expectations. The top seam kept flipping up and I'd have to keep tucking it back under so it wouldn't show under the mesh chest part. I knew that it would annoy me during the ball so I didn't wear it. I'm not sure if this is only an issue for women with small chests or what, but it did it with both sizes I had ordered. Shout out to the incredible customer service who worked with me to get a replacement (of my choice) the morning of the ball! They even sent me 2 sizes of the replacement to make absolutely sure it would work.

I loved this dress!!

The pictures don't do this dress justice. It's beautiful in person. It made me feel so fancy! There was some stretch to it so it was forgiving and I felt so comfortable in it. Even in a petite it was still a little long for me with my 3 inch heels but not too long to be an issue. The lace on shoulder was a little big for me but also not noticeably so . I got lots of compliments on it and there wasn't anything else like it there.

Gorgeous dress but not for my body type.

I was so sad about this one not working out. From the chest down it was just stunning. It hug all the right places and accentuates my curves well. The chest was a problem area. While I was able to zip the dress up, it squished everything and gave me that dreaded underarm pudge. Also, since I am so short I don't think that the pretty shoulder piece would lay as nicely as it does in the picture. This would be a stunning dress on someone who is taller and not as busty.

Red carpet worthy!

The dress was wonderful. I received many compliments. It was a little loose in my hips, and I might have been able to go down to a size 4, but as it was, it was very comfortable! Loved it! I can't wait to RTR again!

Gorgeous dress. Received many compliments. Pictures don't do it justice.

I ordered sizes 6 and 8 in this dress for a wedding. I'm a 34D and wasn't sure if the dress would fit since the 6 was pretty snug in the chest area but fit everywhere else and I was swimming in the size 8. I wound up wearing the size 6 and had no trouble breathing in it at all. And even though I'm busty, the tulle in the front of the dress somewhat gives your cleavage a little coverage and makes this strapless dress very tasteful for a wedding. The only problem with the dress was that it was ripped on the side. Luckily and because I was determined to wear this dress, I was able to alter it and wear it to the event. I'm so glad that I did because I received so many compliments throughout the night! Also, even though I'm only 5'2, I was able to wear 3in heels without tripping over my dress, so my feet were comfortable all night long. (The tulle at the bottom seems to glide every time you take a step, so you won't have to worry about stepping on the dress.) I would definitely rent this again.

Got compliments on the dress all night!

The dress was absolutely stunning, and I felt amazing in it. It does run small, I had to go with the 6R, and the last dress I rented was a 2R, but I've found Monique Lhullier in general runs small. There's a built in lined bra- type deal that means you don't have to wear a bra, but you can wear a strapless. I did. This dress may not work for larger chested ladies...the bodice is VERY fitted, and I'm very small up top. It was very comfortable to wear, and my boyfriend of many years couldn't stop telling me I looked beautiful, so I'd rent this dress again and again!!

Perfect dress for a military ball

I received compliments all night long on this dress. It felt wonderfully glamorous with a vintage movie star flare. The boning and padding meant I needed no additional support and although the fabric over the shoulder really didn't hold anything up, it gave me the peace of mind that the bodice couldn't go too far. This dress is absolutely on my short list to rent again!

Perfect!

This dress made me feel so beautiful! It has nice bones that hug your body but doesn't make you feel like you can't breathe. This was my 1st time not being in the wedding party and I wanted to go for elegant but not too over the top. This dress was perfect. A little bit long for me, but the raw edge of the dress made it feel romantic. (Pic of me and my best friend aka groom)

Sexy dress, that was just a bit too snug.

This dress is beautiful and elegant, however the 8 was just a bit too snug through my hips to fit comfortably through the night, and the 10 would have been too large. I blame the booty.
