I wore this dress to a summer wedding right outside of NYC. I felt beautiful and had every woman at the wedding coming up to me and asking me where I got that dress - which is an amazing feeling!

A center of attention type of dress. Beautiful and flowy but you need to feel comfortable showing some leg! There are shorts underneath - amazing! The material is translucent on bottom and very flowy. This is NOT a dress for a conservative woman!

Comfy and fun for my best friends wedding.
Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Venue was in an open field near the river in VA so I needed dressy but also not too formal. This dress was perfect. The cuts showed a little leg when the wind blew. It was a tiny bit long but it didnt interfere with dancing the night away! This was not the dressed I originally wanted but it turned out to be awesome (and RTR worked with me and provided me with jewels...seen in pic). I LOVE THIS DRESS and want to own it. lightweight fabric, shorts underneath (never had issues with them) and fun print made for a fantastic dress! like i said, it was true to fit, a little long and some gaping on the side but not a big deal, no one noticed. LOVE LOVE LOVE

Fabulous long dress that fits even us short ladies!
Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I had a difficult time picking a long dress to wear off of the RTR website because, being only 5'00", everything was bound to be dragging on the ground even with 4 inch heels on. Luckily, I'm happy to say that this dress was perfect. In the model's picture, the dress looked like it was a few inches off the ground -- I was able to wear about 3 inch heels and the dress was only an inch off the ground and had no issues at all with dragging. I like the "dress almost down to the floor" look anyway, so it worked out. Both the 0R and 2R dresses I received had zipper issues -- one the zipper kept getting stuck halfway up the dress and required both my husband and I to zip it up, and the other the zipper was starting to detach from the dress. They still technically worked and din't take away from the aesthetic of the dress. Also, because of the pattern, any issues w/ the fabric wasn't very apparent. The gold threads running through the dress would sometimes fall out, but you can't tell with the busy fabric. The dress is also very flowy, so it was great in hiding that extra stomach after eating lots of food. Overall, I got many comments about how nice the dress was and two people even pulled me aside and asked me where I got it!

Perfect for a beach wedding!
Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this to my friend's beach wedding and catamaran reception. I was looking for something that wasn't too casual but still appropriate for the beach and this worked perfectly. I loved the colors and how light and airy it was. I went barefoot, so the length of the regular was fine for me. The snaps of the shorts underneath would come undone everytime I sat down, so I just left it undone. Another great rental!

Being told by multiple people that the dress was their "favorite in the room!"
Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Absolutely gorgeous dress! It was too good not to take pictures in, hence the impromptu photo shoot. I felt fabulous and I was so sad to return it. Yes as several other reviewers have warned, there are little golden threads that are flicking out but who cares. The slits up the side are a little revealing, but the little bloomer shorts covered you up. It was a little difficult going to the bathroom though because the buttons are difficult to maneuver...otherwise, seriously fabulous!! I have to give kudos to RTR for their customer service. My backup size had been damaged and they let me pick out a different dress as a back up. But this dress won my heart! Absolutely I recommend renting! You will look feel and look like a goddess!

Beautiful bohemian!
Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was out of my comfort zone as I usually do not wear many patterns, but it was a great dress for a wedding in Lake Tahoe. It flowed in the breeze and I received a lot of compliments on the look. Beware, the dress had been worn many times and as a result the belt was falling off & the gold flecks were sticking out of the material. I placed another belt over the ribbon belt to hold it in place. I would also echo the other renters as the dress was much shorter than I would have liked, but the long was not available when I rented.

I rented this for my birthday date night with my husband. The dress was perfect for the hot night. The gold shimmer isn't too sparkly, just the right amount. The slits on the skirt aren't too revealing and the shorts underneath snap open and shut so it's not a big hassle if you need to go to the bathroom (thats why I hate wearing rompers!)

Shimmery, Sheer and Flowing
Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I am between an 8 and 10--because of my big belly apple shape. The cut of this dress was great for that, although beware of the waist/sash--it's fitted and has no give. But it falls above the natural waist, empire-style which makes it good for hiding bellies. It was very nice for the event, kind of magical and shimmery feeling, long and elegant. The shorts underneath were tough to snap--felt like I had to be a contortionist :-) And they didn't stay snapped the whole time. I perhaps would recommend wearing blush or skin-colored tap pants of your own underneath. It was very comfortable, could fit a range of bust sizes (not *super* big though, because it doesn't stretch, but it is loosely draped on top), and comfortable to dance in and eat in. I really liked it. Also I'm 5'2 so if you are tall it might be too short for you. My heels were only about 3" and it was just right for me.

Dress fit great, I would say if you have a larger back end then most maybe to get the long. The slip underneath was too short for me, but the length was perfect, luckily you could not see through the material so it was fine. I received so many compliments and the dress was so comfortable. It was perfect.

Perfect for an Elegant Beach Wedding
Size worn: 10L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I rented the 10L and went barefoot for this beach wedding. I am 5'7" and the dress was floor length, but not too long. So if I had worn heels, it definitely would have been too short. The style of the dress is gorgeous and flowy, the side slits add sex appeal, but the shorts underneath keep you from a wardrobe malfunction. I am full busted, and there was plenty of room in the dress. It does come down low on the sides, so my strapless bra was visible on the side when I lifted my arms. Now, for the condition of the dress... it was missing the hook above the zipper, the zipper itself is on its last legs, and the (non-removeable) belt is frayed. This is not noticeable unless you look closely, but just a heads up. All in all, the perfect dress for the event, I looked exactly how I wanted to!

This dress was extremely comfortable and airy for a hot summer wedding in Virginia.
Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This was my first time renting from the runway, and it will be the first of many! This dress was absolutely gorgeous- I wore it to a 4:30 outdoor, June wedding. I was so nervous that the dresses would get here the night before the wedding and not fit or look right. I ordered a 6R and a 6L. The Regular was too short, but the Long couldn't have fit more perfectly. I'm 5'7 and I wore it with a pair of dressy, gold, flat sandals. I didn't even have to wear a bra with it - very comfy. I bought a teal statement necklace and teal/gold bangles to re-create the look of the model, I tied the halter in the back. I have absolutely no complaints about this dress. The hight slits made it easier to walk around. The gold threading caught the sunlight and looked awesome. The dress looks great with a golden spray tan!

Loved this dress! It was absolutely gorgeous and I got several compliments at my event. Also, I wore it with a chunky turquoise necklace and it looked perfect! Actually, I might have received more compliments on the necklace than the dress so I'm posting a link to the jewelry designer's website too in case you want to get the full look LOL. (Link to jewelry designer of necklace: http://www.llkdesigns.com/) Thanks RTR for yet another awesome dress!

gorgeous, unique dress
Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
this dress was absolutely stunning - perfect for destination wedding. 0R was too short for me, so i had to wear with flats. otherwise fit well, could have gone with a 2L also. you could tell the dress had been worn quite a few times - the gold thread were a little frayed in some spots, and the shorts part of the lining were no connected at the crotch, which was fine. that's the only reason i'm not giving it 5 stars. loved the dress and got tons of compliments!

I loved this dress! It was very bohemian-glam. I wore nude shoes and gold accessories. A perfect dress for a day outdoor wedding. The colors wear very complimentary to my skin tone and the gold flecks in the dress gave it a pinch of glam. Elegant, sophisticated and not overdone.

really pretty
Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this for a wedding. the customer service was great about sending this to me on a Saturday at my hotel after my original dress didn't fit. Im either a 2 or 4 but the only size available was the 2R. It zipped but was a tiny bit tight where the black band was- there is no stretch there. I didn't end up wearing it bc it was a little too lightweight for the occasion, but I would definitly rent it again for a summer wedding Pros- makes smaller chested girls look busty. the size Regular is great for shorter girls. I had a pair of 3 inch heels and I couldnt believe it but though the dress was a little too short for heels that high. I NEVER have that problem. The great thing about this dress though is that it would look great with a pair of gold gladiator flats. If you are over 5'4 I would get the long if you plan on wearing heels Cons- the dress looked worn. Since the material is thin the gold threading was all over and sticking out. I wouldnt care for one night but the fact that this dress is so $ retail is crazy. the slits that are mentioned are high- I tried to show how see through the skirt was in my pic too so people are aware. Its too bad that its like snap bottom shorts and not just a mini skirt underneath. The shorts under are silky and looked really worn. Overall though it was pretty and very different.

Sparkly maxi meets California casual
Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
I LOVED this dress! I'm usually a size 8 but decided to size down to a 6R based on previous reviews. I was really happy I did, it fit like a glove. I'm 5'4" and wore this dress with dressy flat sandals. It would have been way too short with heels, which was fine for my event (a fashion blogger event -- ignore my name badge around my neck!). I had read the dress came with built-in bloomers that snapped at the crotch, but had no idea what that actually meant! Just picture loose pj's shorts underneath. I liked having these built-in shorts since the slits are so high, but be warned: the shorts are SHORT. The gold thread in the dress was just enough to make it special and I paired the dress with a turquoise necklace to give it a little more pizzazz.

Great Dress for Palm Springs Wedding!
Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I received lots of compliments on this dress. It fit great, and was beautiful. The only complaints that I have are I wish that I would have ordered a 6L, as my dress was a little short for my height since I was wearing 3 inch heals. Also the attached black belt needed to be pressed, and there were little lurex threads hanging off the dress like it had been worn quite a few times. Other than that, it was great. It was light, flowy and sexy. Great dress for a palm springs wedding. Overall happy with my choice.

Perfect dress for a 1970's party!
Size worn: 10R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress to a corporate holiday party and the theme was 1970's. The dress worked great with my Farrah Fawcett hair. I had originally ordered a sequined dress, but my size was no longer available so I ended up going with this dress. I wasn't sure if it was going to work, but I ended up loving it and got so many compliments. I read the reviews prior to ordering it and the slit does go up pretty high, but I wore panty hose since it was December. The little snap in shorts were very helpful too so I didn't have to worry about the dress blowing up. Very fun, feminine dress and RTR was very helpful when my first choice wasn't available.

I loved knowing that by using RTR for the night, I could rock a unique look no one else would have!
Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Based on previous reviews, I decided to go with the LONG length option for both sizes sent to me, since I would be wearing a higher heel with the dress. I'm 5'8", and the 8L was the perfect length to skim the floor but not get tripped up in fabric! I purchased the double-stick tape in case the top was a little too loose (another review tip) and actually wound up using it because I had NO CLUE there were TWO SLITS running up the front of the dress! Holy upper thigh! Two quick pieces of tape later, and I was totally presentable for a wedding, while still maintaining the concept of the double slit (just a little less "DAAAAANG, GINA!"). I received many compliments on the dress, raved about RTR, and encouraged all my friends to use it for their next event! Loved the dress!

Got lots of compliments!!!
Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The dress was perfect for a California wine country fall outside wedding!!! I loved that it was long and flowy but had shorts under. I wore the size 6R because I liked how sleek it felt. My backup size of 8R shorts fit better (didn't unbutton when I sat down) but the top seemed a little poofy. I also liked that I didn't have to wear a bra since the material was loose and scrunchy (in a good way). I paired this dress with a turquiose necklace I had (like the model), gold sandle heels and a turquiose clutch. I felt glamorous, but not stuffy and overdressed at the same time. The gold strands on the dress did have some wearing and were sticking out at the bottom of the dress, but it didn't bother me. I totally recommend this dress!

Best RTR dress yet!
Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this to a late October beach wedding, and I just loved it! The dress has built in shorts, that snap in the crotch, so you will not have a Marilyn Monroe moment. The snaps on my dress did pop open a few times throughout the night, so that's a downside to the dress. (Maybe I should have gone up a size? safe pinned it for more support?) Also, you can change where the tie on the top in, whether on the side or at the back. In terms of fit, the dress could have been longer (see pics), but it was probably long enough. I could have worn the 4 or the 6, but opted with the 4 because the 6 had more fabric in the top/bust. There was really little different in the waist between the two sizes. This is really a gorgeous dress!

Stunning Dress! Very Boho chic!
Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I had eyed this dress for awhile but actually opted to rent a different dress for the wedding I was attending. Unfortunately two days before the wedding RTR called me and said the dress was not available!! I was a little stressed but RTR was so helpful and let me pick any dress they had as a replacement. I went with this gorgeous dress and I could not have been happier!!! They only had a 2R and had none of my back up sizes - the 2R fit but as I'm 5'7" I could only wear flats with it because the dress does run on the shorter size. I will never know but I would say a 4L might have been the ideal size for me. I paired it with a turquoise necklace from RTR that looked amazing! LOVE LOVE this dress!

The dress was sexy with its high, sheer slits yet sophisticated. A lot of compliments.

The sheer bottom looks scandalous in the picture but really it's not I guess unless maybe you're in the sunlight all day you might be able see through it but my concerns about it were for nothing I was outside during the day but mostly inside.

Sexy, but Wedding Appropriate
Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was just that - Sexy, but completely appropriate for the outdoor spring wedding I planned. I received TONS of compliments on this dress. The slits in the skirt portion flow beautifully when I walked and are an excellent compliment to a summer breeze. The built in shorts unbutton easily (so make sure your with someone who doesn't mind rebuttoning them for you). Although the neckline is great by itself, I paired it with an oversized green stone necklace. The gold tones were much more apparent in person than in the picture. I typically wear a 4. The only size in Long they had left was a 2. So I sucked it up and dropped a few pounds before the event. I felt amazing in this dress!

Gorgeous, Fun, Sexy & Flirty Dress. Slits were high, but short underskirt kept everything in check.

I have a big chest & wore with no problem. I ordered the 6 as my backup & liked the smaller size, as the bottom is flowy & it looks best if the ribbon belt is a bit tighter. This is a fun dress, especially if you plan to dance the night away. I loved the necklace recommendation with it as well!

Whimsical Elegance for All Shapes and Sizes
Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
Wore this to a country club wedding and received compliments from everyone, old and young. My only gripe would be with the top. I'm a D cup and wore a VERY padded strapless bra, but the top was still too big (gaping arm holes). Because the black band rides above the puffy tummy area you can size down and still be comfortable. Overall this is an absolutely beautiful dress perfect for all shapes and sizes.

It was so comfortable and really cute! I took it from day to night just by adding some makeup, accessories and a pair of cute heels.

My RTR moment was unforgettable because I got so many compliments. Even after the event, I was still receiving phone calls.

I loved wearing this dress. It was certainly an attention-getter. I was stopped so many times to be told the dress was beautiful. And it definitely was. I felt so elegant. My only one really small issue was the gold threads looked a little worn. It did not look brand new but I don't think anyone really noticed. I will definitely be making another purchase, next week in fact. Overall, for my first time using Rent the Runway it was awesome!

Wore this amazing dress to my girlfriend's wedding in Napa during Mother's Day weekend. Fit perfectly and had enough room to eat and drink! The slip underneath helped with and updraft from the breeze and because of the heat didn't even have to wear a bra ;) also loved how the bow can be adjusted to fit and be worn on the side/back. Simple gold cuffs and black shoes to accent the black sash and viola!! Got tons of compliments. Wish I owned this dress...first time renting and will definitely do it again!!!

Sometimes as a wife and mother, you forget about yourself. When I looked in the mirror, it was a great feeling to look like someone's date!

I wore this dress for a night out in NYC for a show with my husband. Surprisingly, I received lots of compliments! It definitely stood out from the other ensembles. I loved it! I'm a 36D and the top was still a little big on the sides.

I would have never thought to pair it with the turquoise necklace and it was beyond perfect!
Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Vacation
I absolutely loved this dress! It made me feel sexy while remaining conservative during an extended family vacation. The high slits were just the right amount of skin especially outside by the water in Palm Beach at christmas time. The only reason I give it 4 instead of 5 stars is that the black ribbon belt kept rolling up/folding over which was a bit annoying, id suggest using fashion tape to hold in place.
