Not as expected
The dress was worn out. It had no shine in the purple fabric and the gold band looked like cheap gold fabric you often see on drill team dance outfits. It didn't appear formal or very nice at all.

This was a swanky work event and it was nice to be in a vibrant color!
This dress was big in the chest area for me and tighter on the ribs... I am a 34DDD and 10-12. The fit was lovely, however without a strapless bra I did feel that I had to pull up on it a lot. At 5'10" the long dress was perfect with flats and heels. It barely grazed the ground when I had on flat sandals and did not look too short with 3.5" heels. I am giving this dress 3 stars because the boning was poking through the inside and cut my skin. I was also poking through on the outside... no doubt because of it being over-worn. The dress itself was a classy Grecian style that is more purple than blue. It's a little difficult to zip around the stitching from the the gold accents, but a pair of needle-nose pliers really comes in handy for that. This was my first time ordering from RTR and I had a great experience. The dresses arrived a day early so I was able to determine which one I wanted to wear. This was my first choice and I was extremely happy.

Ringing in the New Year
I actually rented this two years ago, and never wrote a review! I usually run between dress size 8/10 depending on the fabric and cut. This dress doesn't have any pull, so I went with the 10 so I was more comfortable. It fit wonderfully, gave a great shape and was easy to dance in. Make sure you rent a larger back-up size if you're a bustier girl!

Very pretty, but runs long.
This dress is very pretty, the color is lovely and the overall feel and look is great. However, the dress ran long, so much so, that I had to keep picking it up and holding it when I walked. So if you are shorter, you will have to wear higher heels (I had 2 inch heels on and am 5'6") or maybe get a shorter length if one is available. Also, I am small chested and this dress was difficult for me to keep 'up'. I had to keep pulling it up to make sure it wasn't showing too much! Maybe size down one if you have the same issue as I do. ;-) Overall it was very pretty and great service on the part of RTR as always!

Great dress but definitely worn out
It was an awesome dress for a formal wedding where long gowns were required for ladies. It was pretty true to size, though a tight fit for girls with bigger busts. Loved the vibrant color and the feel of the fabric, but it was pretty clear it had been rented a few times because the wiring for the corset/boning was already poking out in various parts of the dress, sometimes into my skin. Thankfully I was able to deal but that definitely wasn't fun. Other than that I couldn't complain as it came right on time, got a great fit, and I had a blast at the wedding! #formal #wedding #vibrant

An absolutely gorgeous dress. It looks simple, but when worn it's stunning! The petite was perfect for my height with very high heels and the fit was slimming and flattering.

Great fit, beautiful color, true to size, very flattering to large busted women like myself.
I cannot say enough good things about this dress. I am 5'2'', weigh 120 lbs but my bust is 36DD. This dress was very flattering to my figure. I got alot of compliments and would definitely recommend this dress for any formal affair. I wore it to a Mardi Gras Ball so the purple was a perfect choice. I felt beautiful in this dress and very confident. I usually wear a size 8 but have to get it hemmed. The 8 Petite was the perfect length for me. I will definitely recommend Rent the Runway to all my friends.

I LOVE RTR!!
I ordered the 6P and 4R as a backup. I'm typically a size 6 and get a little optimistic when I size down. However, days before my event the 6 was "destroyed beyond repair" and RTR stood up to their incredible reputation and worked quickly with me to send two additional back up dresses, regardless of price, along with my original back up size 4. Turned out, this dress runs large and the 4 fit perfectly and I wouldn't have had to wear the 6 anyways, but I ended up loving the two emergency backup dresses they overnighted me much more than my original choice. RTR and the ladies behind the brand is amazing. I don't buy dresses anymore and I tell all my friends about them. I never had any hesitation or worried for a second that they would leave me without a dress and actually, having my dress been "destroyed" actually worked out to my benefit. But even after all of their amazing hard work and dedication to their customers, I just received this box of chocolates from them as an apology for my last experience. The way they stood up to the occasion doesn't require an apology or a box of chocolates, however, this just goes to show what an amazing company RTR is and they've gone above and beyond again and managed to exceed all of my expectations. I am a loyal customer for life and I work hard at converting all of my friends, family and coworkers over to RTR as well. Love you RTR!!!

So elegant. I stood out in all the right ways!
I wore this dress to a Military Ball. It was appropriate in the fact that everything was covered, and yet I got compliments all night on how HOT it was! It was comfortable and didn't wrinkle easily (which I was afraid of when first ordering the dress). The only problem was that I ordered a long and even the regular was too long... I had to find some extra high heels, but all in all it was a perfect night with the perfect dress! So WARNING: Don't order the long unless you are over 6foot, 6in. tall. But if you stick with the regular and add heels, it's a great dress. I would wear order it again.

This dress was beautiful on and I got many compliments. Pretty purple color. I wore this to a black tie ball and it was perfect for that event! It fit true to size and the long length hit me perfectly. The slit on the side was a nice touch!

Love, love, love this dress! I wore it to an Indian wedding, and received a zillion compliments.
This dress is SO easy to wear. The color is stunning, and it moves beautifully--super easy to dance in. It runs true to size, but it's definitely on the long side. I'm 5'4" and had to wear 4.5" heels just to keep it from dragging on the ground. Absolutely perfect besides that, though! You'll love it.

The dress was so flattering, got so many compliments on it
I normally wear a 2, but wore a 0 in this dress, the 2 was definitely too big in the bust area. Loved this dress, very easy to dance in and was very flattering

did you wear heels? if so, how tall were they?

I wore about 4 or 5 inch heels and am 5 7. The dress was long but wasn't dragging too much

Completely different than every other dress there
I wore this dress to the Marine Ball, and it was completely different than any other dress there. When I first pulled it out of the box and tried it on I wasn't too thrilled, but when I put it on and was all dolled up for the event I fell in love with the dress. The color is a lot darker than the way it is pictures on the model and it has more a bluish hue to it. The dress is very comfortable and wears well, but it is really long, and the top wasn't quite tight enough around my bust area.
AlliJanuary 3, 2013
I'm about the same size as you, just a little shorter...how was the length?
RhiannonJanuary 15, 2013
It was pretty long, I had on four or so inch heels and it was still a little bit too long, but not bad enough that I was tripping over it.

Beautiful dress!
This was my back-up gown, since RTR told me that my original choice wasn't available. It was so beautiful and very flattering. The length was perfect for me with 2" heels. As the night went on, some of boning in the top started to poke out, but it wasn't anything I couldn't handle.

I looked and felt awesome! Great length!
The dress was fitted on top and made my waist look tiny. However, it ran a little large and probably could have worn the 0 becuase I had to pull up my dress a lot. If you wear a pretty supportive strapless or dont wear a bra at all you should be fine depending on your cup size. I loved the way the dress flowed, perfect length for me, with gold and light purple platform heels (nine west) 4inches. The dress was a little worn, the bottom was frayed and looked like someone shorter dragged it around. It was barely noticeable. the dress wrinkles easily so sit correctly! Loved dancing in it, it was such a fun dress and wish I owned it! It photographed with the kenneth jay lane earrings perfectly, even though they are more navy and the dress is a warm purple. Get a smaller size esp if you plan on dancing a lot!!

WAY Too big
The design idea of this dress is gorgeous, but there turned out to be so many things wrong with it that I couldn't wear it, unfortunately. First, it is HUGE! I ordered my regular size 6, and I've worn other dresses by this brand before that fit just fine in that size, but this dress must have been a size 10 in reality! There was no way I could keep it up--even with stuffing the bra, etc., it was huge. Secondly, the seams on the inside of the bust had something wrong with them so that they were all messed up, and this made it look like I had stuffed the dress with cauliflower when it was on. Thirdly, the fabric just seems kind of cheap when you see it in person. The color is beautiful, and it could still be really pretty on you, if you got a size that fit and the seams on the inside of the bust were able to be flattened out. I'd say definitely order a smaller size than normal. I wish I'd tried a size 2.

Feeling like a milllion bucks!
I wore this dress to my Fall Ball, and it's both extremely flattering and very forgiving, both of which I appreciated. After speaking to the fit specialist, I ordered the 4R and 6R, and was pretty sure that I'd end up wearing the 6R. Turns out this dress runs pretty large, so i ended up wearing the 4R and still had to tape the top of the dress so it wouldn't drop. Minor annoyance, generally a winner all around for me!

Perfect dress for a formal wedding. My first time with RTR and I was extremely pleased.
The dress fit perfectly, true to size. It was a bit too long- but I made it work. I would've preferred the 4R. Overall the color, style was perfect for a formal wedding.

Perfect dress for the theater
My husband took me to see the live production of Les Miserables for my birthday--and we were the best dressed people there. This was so elegant feeling. I'm tall (5'10) and in 3" heels this still touched the ground. It does run a little big--I was tugging it up all night. But a great dress.

Stylist Review
I loved the layered construction and shimmery belt- it really adds a different look to the dress. The built in bra was supportive so you didn’t need to wear anything underneath and the draped skirt was super flattering. The color is a little bit darker in person - more of a royal blue then purple. Still very pretty though!

I'm more of Beyonce's body type-pretty fit but I definitely have hips like she does, so if it is a straight up and down dress I don't want it to look like a maternity dress on me

Lovely, graceful gown!
Wore this to one of the presidential inaugural balls in DC -- felt elegant and received lots of compliments. Flowy, easy to walk in. I'm 5'11" and wore short heels with this, perfect length. Only downsize was that I had to stuff/pad the bust a bunch, since I'm small-chested.

The color wasn't how it appeared in the picture, it was more purple than blue, but I like purple better so it was fine for me. There was a little issue with the side zipper, but other than that it was very comfortable.

LOVED this dress -- wore it to the Presidential Inaugural Ball in DC and it was the perfect choice.
The bust was a little large for me, but what I loved is that I'm 5'2" and the 6P length was perfect for me. The color is a deep royal blue which looks great on olive skin. Flattering on a curvy body and a striking color -- I felt like a princess!

This dress was perfect for a white tie ball!
Rented this for a white tie ball event. It fit perfectly throughout the body and length. I am 5'7" and wore 4 inch heels. The dress hit the floor as though it was tailored specifically for me! Also, it is a little darker than it looks on the website. It is deep, rich blue that would compliment just about any type of skin tone. Super comfortable dress. Could have worn it all day and night. Only downside: I have a skinny frame, and I am a 32B. I wore a padded strapless bra, but the top of the dress still felt a little loose. It never slid on me, and I didn't have to adjust much during the evening, so maybe it's just a personal preference. I just like my strapless dresses to be snug up top! Got MANY compliments throughout the night, and the dress really stood out! I definitely plan on coming back to rent the runway over and over again.

This was my mistake. I should have gotten a 10. It is very fitted at the top and it simply didn't fit me. It was very pretty though.

Very comfy and flattering
This was my back-up style, and I didn't end up wearing it. I felt like the fit was true to size. The 4 wasn't available, and the 2 was a struggle for me to zip - I am pretty busty though. I'm 5'6'', and the regular length was perfect w/ 3'' heels. I just had my second baby, and this dress provided very good camouflage for the tummy area. It is a very comfortable material too. The only reason I didn't wear it was that I didn't feel like it was quite formal enough for a black tie wedding. It's nice, but plain, so dressy accessories are a must. A few ladies have said this dress was more of a royal blue color, but I felt like it looked exactly as pictured.

Looked and felt like a goddess
I could have worn the 10L but opted for the 12L for more comfort in the bust. The color of the dress is rich and gorgeous. I got tons of compliments on the look. I was expecting the belt to be more like a belt, but it fabric sewn to the dress to look like a belt. The inner layer of the dress is fitted and the outer layer is "flowy," so if you have hips this isn't an a-line like fit. I loved how the dress flowed in the wind; one person said I looked like Wonder Woman as I walked across the deck of a cruise ship. The top layer also helps with a post-dinner "food baby." Word of caution; be careful putting this on. The transition from the fabric to the belted fabric and back is a bit difficult and my husband for the first time actually got me with the zipper. Ouch. I am 5' 9'' and all leg and am very happy I ordered the long. I wore these with a 3 inch heel and the length was near perfect.

Beautiful with grecian lines but remains a conservative choice
I rented this for Oscar patty. The pro : its nice and has a flow, and easy to wear. The cons, it is a darker color than pictured and more of a blue tone. It runs one size large, I usually take 2 , but I had to wear the 0 . I think its great this service let you order two sizes, thats a big plus, I love that. I like the dress but the girls in gold or metallics or with sparkle kind of stole the crowd's attention. I mean the event was very dark, no bright light. I think the dress would do better in the day light. Very classy and elegant though, not a show off dress.

A great dress. Very flattering. Got a lot of complements!!
The fit was forgiving except for the waist. In order to zip it up, I had to turn it to the front so that I could get a good hold on the zipper. The length was LONG! I ordered a regular size length, figuring that that would be perfect (I'm 5'8"), but it was still dragging the ground. Granted, I wore flats to the event so in heels it would have been ok. Otherwise, a lovely dress. Perfect color.

Dress was fantastic and highly complimented throughout the evening!
The whole experience with RTR exceeded my expectations. The dresses came in perfect condition, on time as promised. The dress I chose fit in the size I normally wear. It worked out just beautifully! As it turned out, I was almost 14 weeks pregnant when I wore the dress which I had not planned for when I ordered or spoke to the stylist. Luckily, the A-Line fit with the high waist was very forgiving and made my still secret pregnancy unnoticable! Will definitely use RTR again and will strongly recommend to others!

I'm tall and i'm pregnant. Loved that it fit!
I loved that the site allowed for searches specific to being 'bump friendly', as I was 16-weeks pregnant with my second child and already showing. I didn't want to spend money purchasing a new dress that I may not wear again, due to the style needing to accommodate a belly. So I turned to renttherunway and my first experience was great. I tried on both sizes just to be sure, but my original guess turned out to fit the best. Was super easy to return and I appreciated the email reminders and guidelines on how to make the process painless. I'll definitely rent again for the next formal affair.
