Perfect for my senior prom! I got so many compliments!
This dress was perfect!! It held up well throughout the night when I used the hollywood tape. I wore 4" heels and the length was perfect! The only bad thing about the dress was that there were strips of gold coming off the dress, but you couldn't see them at all in pictures or at a distance. I was soo happy with my first RTR purchase!

You look stunning! If you don't mind me asking, where did your friend on the right get her dress?

Had a wonderful night in this dress, I'm so happy I chose it as my dress for senior prom
I got the size 2 and 4, both seemed to fit the same. I went with the 4 though so I could fit a sticky bra in too. I received so many compliments throughout the night, so I was even more pleased with my decision. It was easy to dance in. The only thing I had an issue with was the dress creating an awful looking pooch on my stomach if I wasn't standing up completely straight in pictures. I've never worn a long dress for any occasion, but it turned out great. I wasn't pulling the dress up all night. I loved the surprise jewelry I was sent also, the earrings went very nice with the whole look. I wore ivory/nude shoes that looked very nice with the color of the dress. In person, the dress is a very pale pink with gold/silver shimmer accents all over. I'd recommend this site to anyone!

Radiant Dress
This was a very classy dress and I am happy I rented it for prom. I was really concerned about the color because it seemed to be different in every picture but it turned out to be really beautiful in person. The details on this dress are gorgeous. It's definitely gold detailing so keep that in mind when choosing accessories. I wore 4 1/2" heels and it was a good length on me. The only cons I had with this dress were that it did not stay up very well when I was dancing a lot but that's to be expected. Also, the bottom of the dress looked a little worn but no one noticed but me. All in all, I was happy with my rental.

Beautiful fit and fabric, though some of the gold thread was just slightly frayed. Still gorgeous though

Amazing night, amazing dress
This dress was actually quite different than what I was expecting, but I still loved it. I wore it to a military ball and got many compliments and it photographs BEAUTIFULLY. A few tips though: It looks almost white in the photos with the model, but is actually much more gold. I'm tall and with 3-inch heels, it was almost too short (but not quite!) so tall girls may want shorter shoes. Also, my height made the slit come up to my mid-thigh which was a bit higher than I expected from photos. What gives the dress such a beautiful shimmer is gold embroidery all over, but the fabric is very thin and the embroidery was frayed all over. From a few feet away it was unnoticeable (and totally invisible in photos) so it wasn't much of an issue. I have a smaller bust so I pinned a (padded) strapless bra inside and it didn't keep falling down which was awesome! Overall, it worked out very well and I will use RTR again. It was so convenient, came right on time, and made me feel like a princess at the ball!

Trying on the dress for the first time and looking in the mirror was a pretty amazing feeling.
At first I was afraid the Regular length dress would be too short for me. (long wasn't in stock) But it ended up being the perfect length to my liking. I am a tad shorter than 5'8 and I wore 4 in. heels. The dress ended right below my ankle, so you could still kind of see the shoe, which is what i wanted. I am pretty flat chested, and the dress stayed up fine!! I chose to wear the 0R instead of the 2R because i felt the 0R would be more snug to my curves. I danced in it fine as well. The only downside was that the dress scrunched up a little in the stomach area and looked weird when i walked, but that was the only problem. LOVED IT.

First time ordering from RTR for prom & i'm so glad i did.
it's very comfortable. the slit in the middle was weird when you sat down but really i loved it. i did have trouble zipping up the zipper but with the help of two friends it zipped up just fine.

Beautiful dress with the perfect amount of shimmer to make you stand out!
Loved the look of this dress, it was perfect for the wedding I went to! Got tons of compliments all night and was so pleased as to how easy the whole renting process was. The dress was a little large, I could have probably gone for a Size 0 instead but the Size 2 worked, just adjusted it a little throughout the night to make sure it stayed up :). Would have been fine if it weren't for the fact that it's a strapless, so you need it to stay in place a little better! I wore 4 inch heels and gown touched the floor, was maybe an inch or two longer than ideal, but was not even noticable. Overall, this was a great dress and totally loved how great it looked! PS - Recommend you steam it before you wear it, even though it was dry cleaned before it was sent, the fabric is very thin and seems to wrinkle pretty easily.

Amazing dress!
This dress fit true to size however was a bit too long for me. I'm 5'4" and had to get 3 inch heels but other than that the dress was amazing! Originally I thought that the dress was more of a nude color but turns out the dress is more gold than anything. I originally rented 2 dresses but I'm so glad I went with this one because it really stood out. In addition, it was very comfortable and I didn't feel like I needed to keep pulling it up unlike other strapless gowns I've worn before. Absolutely no regrets at all!

It looked so nice on me very good at curve huggging. My boobs also looked pretty good in the dress..
The dress was a more pinkish color than i expected, i kinda looked a bit pregnant because of the little bump in the front but its ok because it actually looked good on me anwyways. Also the dress did't look new it looked kinda used up. It's a bit long so i definitely recommend getting the short if your on the shorter side

I felt beautiful, and the way he looked at me, priceless
I was expecting more from this dress to be honest and it didn't help that my back up size never came through, although in fairness this was when sandy was rolling through the cost last year. The dress didn't lay like it did in the picture, and felt cheap. The material was more spandex like than I pictured, I had to trip the frays off the whole dress, and the slit in the middle kept riding up so dancing was out of the question. Also, it bunched up in the middle toward the belly button line. Even though I had these con's, I still received compliments on the dress.

I LOVED this dress and so did everyone else.
I wore this as a homecoming queen nominee at my school. It is gorgeous. The actual dress is a little hard to explain, but it is gorgeous on. I got compliments all night and people kept asking me where I got my dress. I am 5'5", and I would recommend wearing heels with the dress and ordering a size down because it is very loose fitting. I wish I could've kept the dress because it is soooooo pretty and made me feel amazing. I definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a show-stopping but subtle dress.

Not for me, but the RTR team made it so easy to swap for another style.
Although I ordered both a 2R and 4R, neither fit just right and I ended up swapping for another style. The RTR team was extremely helpful and friendly, and I received another style the next day just in time for my event.

I wore this for a black tie gala and felt beautiful:)
I really loved this dress and the sparkle is awesome. It looks fantastic in photos. My only problem was that it did appear to be a little worn if you looked at it up close, there was a small tear above the slit down the middle and some of the "sparkle" was coming off. However, the dress was very beautiful and I would recommend renting it.

Bridesmaids Dresses
When I was looking for bridesmaid dresses online, I came across a wedding a party wearing these gowns. I looked at where we could find them and came across Rent the Runway. We ordered one gown for my girls to try on a few months early and a size 0 and 2 came. We figured out which dress sizes to order for the actual day. We did have to use fabric tape the day of to keep the dresses up but it worked out great and as you can see my girls looked gorgeous!!!

I wore the Twilight Shimmer Gown for my Senior Prom. I had three people come up to me and say that this dress was their favorite dress they saw that night.
This dress is ultra light weight and perfect for dancing the night away! The Twilight Shimmer Gown is incredibly flattering and I believe it would work for all body types. I have slim legs and arms, but I have a little belly, and this dress hid it perfectly! I HIGHLY recommend this dress, it is worth the money. I am normally a 4R, but I ordered a 0R and a 2R and the 2 fit perfectly. NOTE: the picture is deceptive, the dress is the lightest of pinks, almost flesh toned, and has GOLD detailing, not silver. I thought it was pink and silver and had to do a last minute shoe swap and earring run.

So happy I chose those dress!
I wore it to my sorority's formal. it Fit great! I am 5'7", wore flats and the dress in a regular touched the floor but didn't drag. It was a little more worn looking than i would have liked but no one else seemed to notice. Definitely would recommend this to someone. I got compliments left and right all night!

I really liked this dress and received a ton of compliments from men and women!!!
It was very comfortable, true to size, and I didn't have to wear a bra! The dress is almost an accessory in itself so no need to overdo it on the jewelry. It did come to me a little on the wrinkled side, but I took a light iron to it and it was fine.

This dress looks great on you! I want to wear this dress to my prom. Im 5'2" and weigh 127lbs and also a 36B should I rent the 4R?
CrystalDecember 17, 2012
Thanks Angie! You're a little smaller than me in weight and height, so I would order the 4R and the 2R. It's a really great dress! I'm sure you'll look FAB! Good luck!

I chose this dress for my boyfriend's sister's wedding! I have never recieved SO many compliments! I definately stood out and felt awesome. It was true to size and I danced all night in it with no worries trying to adjust it. I wore gold accessories and had a nude bag to match my nude shoes. I would absolutely recommend this dress, gorgeous and comfortable!!!

Rented this for my prom!
This dress is gorgeous! I was fortunate and found jewerly at Charming Charlie's that matched perfectly. I wore a gold tone bracelet and earrings with blush pink stones. I was also lucky again and found some Steve Madden heels that were the exact blush pink/nude color of the dress. I am 5'4 and wore 4 inch heels and the length was perfect The sizing is dead on. I did not spend the night pulling up my dress and I did not even use the included fashion tape. Everything about the whole experience was perfect, and I will be back.

Beautiful Dress!
I ordered this as my back up dress and didnt love it as much as my original choice. Besides that, the dress was very pretty and I had a hard time choosing between the two, i am 5'0 and have on 5' heels in this picture, the dress dragged a bit. the bust is a bit loose and i had to pull it up a couple times and i didnt even leave my house! THe material and design is completely different than how it looks in pictures, its more of a pattern. This dress was gorgeous and im glad i chose it because it was a great back up!

Perfect prom dress!
Everyone told me renting is the worst, especially for prom. But I am so glad I decided to rent this dress. The fact that you receive another size makes life so much easier. This dress was a little loose around my stomach but I pinned it to tighten it a little & looked and felt great!

Very formal and fitting for a Homecoming event.
Waist size: 27" Hip: 36" The dress drape my body perfectly. I order two size just in case but turns out 2R look better than the 4R. The slit that runs up the bottom of the dress was a bit of an obstacle but just pray that your day isn't going to be windy and wear something underneath.

Simply Elegant
This dress was a hit! The nude color makes it great for a clean, elegant look, and the gold bits add a nice pop. I typically wear a size 4 or 6 in dresses, and given what the size chart said, I ordered a 4 with a 6 as backup. The 4 fit perfectly. I'm 5' 5.5'' and would have needed 3 1/2 inch heels to keep the dress from dragging on the floor. I opted for 2 1/2 inch heels and it turned out fine; the slit in the front makes it easy to walk without tripping on the dress and the slightly dragging train added to the glamorous look. Was slightly itchy at times, but not bothersome. I would highly recommend it!
