Lots of compliments, pretty color
Since I have a very small bust, I definitely had to pin the top, as it was very low cut. I loved the sleeves and color of this gown - very flattering. I ordered a size 4 (my normal size) and a 6L, since there wasn't a regular size 6 available. I ended up having to wear the 6L because the 4 was way too short for me. The bust of the dress sagged well below where it should have been, but I used some pins and it looked great! I also added a belt to hold it up. I received lots of compliments!

Not what I expected.
Eh, I wasn't crazy about this dress, had I gotten it earlier I would have tried to exchange it. The regular length was short, I'm 5'4, and even with flats it was too short. I do prefer my maxis and gowns to skim the floor, but this was still too short. It ran way big too, which the others reviews said but since I just had a baby, and the smaller size was unavailable, I thought it would be fine. I wore this to a rehearsal dinner and brought my son, so I wanted to be able to nurse him incase he got crazy. It was boob-central, I had to safety pin it but it was still a bit too much. The material was also thicker than I thought, so it got pretty hot, not for an August event, like I rented it for. Overall, I would have rented it again, but maybe in a 10L or even 8L. It is a really beautiful color and dress.

This was sent as a replacement dress and it made me look pregnant. Didn't like it at all. There was so much material. Reminded me of a bridesmaid dress

Nice color! Lots of compliments.
I enjoyed the dress. It was definitely low cut as advised by other renters but not terribly low. I would have given it four stars but my dress came with a malfunctioning zipper that only zipped to two inches from the top even though the dress was not too tight.

Beautiful gown but not for me!
This is a beautiful gown, however; it did not work for me. The fabric is thick and heavy and hung awkwardly on me. As other reviewers have noted, it is VERY low. I could have made it work but I like my back up there much better. Would recommend for pregnant gals!

It was a great dress for the Gala event!
The dress was a little big in my waist but fit me perfect in the chest area. If you have a larger chest size I recommended this dress because its easy to find a bra that works with it. The dress was comfortable and I felt great in it all night. When I received it the color was more green then I expected it to be but I actual liked it better then I did in the picture. Its the first time I rented a dress and from know on it will be the only thing I will do and Rent the Runway will be the only place I look to get a dresses for a black tie event!!!

VERY LOW CUT
As a pregnant lady with giant boobs this was far too revealing to wear out even with fashion tape. I actually dont think anyone with a sizeable chest could get away with wearing this unless you had the most perfectly perky breasts in the world. Fit was a bit large but comfortable. Material is heavy. the 12R that i rented was at my ankles and I am 5'5" thus not a floor length. It totally would be a great 'bump friendly' dress if the top wasnt so low cut. I really wanted this to work out but with the plunging neck there was just no way. The color is emerald and not teal-ish blue.

Great color
I would definitely recommend going a size down for this dress. The cut is much lower than the picture depicts and all of the fashion tape in the world couldn't really save it from gaping. I had to constantly readjust it all night. This being said, the long size worked perfectly (I am 5'8 and wore 3 inch heels), but I would have gone a size, possibly two, sizes down.

Lovely!
This dress was great for my event. The "V" is pretty low and I had to use tape in order to cover everything. It also is green, and not the aqua blue seen in the picture! 4" heels made the dress a little bit short, which never happens to me since I'm only 5'2". But it was a great dress that I enjoyed wearing very much.

Bump Friendly!
I am almost 6 months pregnant and rented another dress for my event, however, due to the band around the waist being too tight, the dress did not fit. I was super nervous because I did not have time to go out and get another dress since my event was the next day. I called RTR right away and was overnighted this dress free of charge! The dress is beautiful.. I rented a size 12L to accommodate my ever growing belly. Usually I wear a size 6 or 8. I cannot comment on the real fit of this dress since I am not normal size right now. However, the color was gorgeous. The cut was very bump friendly. I am 5'7" and the long worked great with 4" heels. You could see the tips of my toes, but in the back the dress touched the floor (probably because of my belly). The neckline is extremely low, but I was able to pin it and wear a regular bra without a problem. The material is also a little heavier than I expected, but overall I was very please with this dress. Thank goodness RTR came through!

great dress, great color!
super comfortable too! the long version was just a tad bit too long.... i am 5'9. but i think the regular version would have been too short. very baggy in the chest area. i am a 36D and it was baggy on me. a little pinning was necessary since the dress was too heavy to hold the tape provided. overall, loved it!

Not Pleased
I couldn't wear this dress. The material was heavy, the fit was terribly unforgiving, and the color was much closer to green, then to this nice teal it portrays in this photo. The dress was huge, and the boob area came down so far that I couldn't have worn a bra. If this was a shirt I would have had to put a camisole underneath. It was also very short, I am only 5'4"; it stopped above my ankles.

Love the color!
It is a VERY deep plunging neckline. I am more on the bustier side, so I had to pin the dress so it wouldn't show too much. The fit was great, even a little loose so go with normal size and size down. Very comfortable dress and pretty color.

Beautiful color, but odd fit
Rented this as a back-up for a wedding, as it was on the list of "bump friendly" dresses. Even at 9 months pregnant and a 36F bust, the dress was very large and low cut. Normal size was a 6, but given how late in the pregnancy I was I tried a 10 - I was swimming in it and I doubt the 8 would've been much better.

This was my first rental and it went very smoothly. I love RTR and told everyone about it.
Loved this dress so much! The difference between the regular and the long is huge! I had to wear the long because the regular was way too short. But with the long I had to wear 4 inch heels. Cleavage was a bit out of control so I used fashion tape and a safety pin and it was still quite boobalicious. The material is heavy but it made it feel elegant.

Unusual fit, darker color
This dress runs very large, so go for the smaller size! The V neck opens much wider than it appears in the picture, and even with a very small chest I thought it was inappropriate for a formal affair. The material is very heavy and it is a more emerald green color than the photo shows. Sad it didn't work for me, but I'm sure would look great on someone taller.

I was nervous about my dress getting here on time, but RTR came through for me! It was a great night
Overall, I loved this dress. The color was beautiful and I got so many compliments. I did, however, have to pin the cleavage area because it was a bit big. I read some other reviews and I agree that it does run large. I ordered a 6 and and 8 and it wasn't even a question that I would wear the 6. Also I'm about 5'10" and the size "long" was not quite as long as I would have liked. You could just see my shoes under it. Good thing I had already decided to wear flats.

This dress was so comfortable and moved very well.
I loved wearing this dress. It was simple and comfortable yet the neckline drew attention to all the right places! This dress was long on me as I am 5'2" so I did trip on it a couple of times. I paired it with some gold earring and a gold Grecian style bracelet. I would definitely rent this dress again!

Nice color but fit awkwardly on me.
This is a super gorgeous gown and the color looked great against my pale skin and dark hair. However, I think I should've sized down...perhaps this was just due to sizing, but the neckline and sleeves didn't really flatter my shoulders either. I ended up going with one of my other dresses from my order!

I got more compliments in this dress than I have... maybe ever.
I was and am still absolutely in love with this dress, but it definitely wouldn't work for everyone. A few things to know going in: 1. This dress runs big! Personally, I was counting on that, but definitely something to keep in mind when ordering. Size down. 2. The long length was perfect for me at 5"9', even when I slipped into flat sandals later in the evening. 3. Also, this is really, REALLY low cut. I have a small bust so it was great for me, but I would say if you are ANYTHING above a small C, this could be an issue. I had to wear fashion tape.

Beautiful dress, but way to big!
I loved this dress, but it was way to big and way to low cut. I usually wear a 12US/16 UK but this made me look twice as big as normal, they only had the 12 avaliable so I went for it. The zipper was hard to get down too. I am very sad I loved this dress so much. Plus the regular was not floor length like pictured and I wasn't wearing shoes it was more ankle length. My advice would be to size down!

Very open neckline, better for smaller chested women. The color on the RTR website does not match the color in real life.. However, when you take pictures, they look like the RTR pics. SUPER LONG even as a regular. Perfect cut!

Long and low cut!
I love this dress, but if you're busty, I suggest you stay away. It was really low cut, and I felt self conscious all night in it. On the plus side, I liked that the dress comes in "Long," being a tall girl myself. The color is pretty, and I personally liked the fabric. However, the dress is very low cut, and will definitely require some pins/fashion tape to stay in place.

"This dress was made for you!"
I'm 5'4" and was worried about ordering a long dress but it all fit perfectly with the right shoes. The fit is great and the complementary double sided tape came in handy.
TIFFANYOctober 12, 2012
How many inches do you believe that your shoes were? I'm worried about the same thing!
RTR CustomerOctober 12, 2012
Hi Tiffany! If you are 5'4" we recommend wearing a 1-3 inch heel. If you are planning to wear a heel that is 4 inches or higher then I may suggest ordering the Long as as back-up!

Great color - poor fit
I usually wear an 8, but after reading the reviews I ordered a 6, which I ended up wearing as it fit me best. However, it is very low cut and the fabric is very heavy, so I was constantly pulling it up and used A LOT of tape in an attempt to keep everything in place.

Very pretty, but runs large
I rented this dress for my boyfriend's fraternity's formal in Savannah, GA. It was a great dress! I rented the 2R and 4R. I wore the 2R, and it was still a little big. The material was really comfortable and flowy, but the the jersey fabric weighed a little heavy causing the dress to pull down lower than it should be. I used a lot of double sided fashion tape to hold it in place- and it did the trick, even though I was self-conscious all night about something slipping! The waist does fit more like an empire waist rather than a natural waist like pictured on the model. Overall though a very pretty dress, and the color was so rich and went great with my green eyes! The length was perfect. I'm short, but with the right sized heels (I think mine were 3") it was just right. I received lots of compliments! Trying to share photos, but uploader won't work.

Odd sizing
At the time of renting this dress I was a small 10/large 8. I rented the size 8 and 6 and neither of them worked. The 8 was too large in the lower half of the dress but good in the bust. The 6 was perfect in the lower half but too small in the bust. (I am a 36 C) If I could have taken the bottom of the size 6 and the top of the 8 it would have been the perfect dress. I was sad that I wasn't able to wear the dress because it looks great and seemed like it would have been very comfortable to wear. Another thing is the bust is cut VERY low. If you are daring enough to do it you can wear as is but I would pin the bust up a little. I like cleavage but I also like to leave something to the imagination. Hope this helps.

Color and fabric were great, but the waist sat very high on me...and I do not have a long torso! I'm 5'5 so I was surprised that it fit much more like an empire waist.

This dress was lovely, but so large it looked like I was smuggling a circus under it. No amount of fashion tape or safety pins could rectify it. I rented the Shoshanna Lace and Love dress as a back up and it was perfection!

Not What I Expected..
Even after reading all the negative review of this dress I decided to go ahead and risk ordering it - HUGE mistake. Not only did RTR send me the wrong size but the dress is not the same color and the fabric is thick and tacky. Like many have commented before, unless you are extremely flat chested or extremely confident in showing cleavage, this dress is not for larger busted women. I should have listened to everyone else's warnings. I would not recommend this dress.

I guess because my boobs are bigger than the model's, this dress became empire-waisted and looked like maternity wear. I was bummed because the color is incredible and rich. Luckily, I had a back up. I would not recommend for the large busted ladies.

I'm 5'8" 150lb 36DD. I got the 8L and it was huge!!! The front opened to my belly button it was at least 8" too long and aside from that the material was very heavy. Even if it had fit this is not a dress for someone with a big chest, zero support and very revealing. The color was gorgeous though.

I ordered the 6L and the 2R. I usually run between a 4 & 6. The 2 fit perfectly, with a little tape to keep the ladies in their place. I had a little trouble with getting the zipper to close all the way, but eventually got it to work. The regular length was long enough with flats. The long would have been a good length for 3-4" heels

I am a 4/6 and got both sizes to be safe. Interestingly the 6 fit better in the top, the 4 was much bigger in the top than the 6. Ultimately I could have worn either size. As others have mentioned the dress is considerably darker green than it appears in the photos.

This dress fits like a potato sack. The fabric is also rough to the touch. I had to make a last-minute rental and hoped this one would work; it didn't. The regular size was incredibly short and so was the long. Luckily, RTR has GREAT customer service and I had a backup dress that worked out amazingly. This dress may work for some body types, but rent at your own risk.
