Gorgeous, unique color. Dress is very formal, flattering, but still somewhat conservative!
Does pucker a bit in the back at the zipper. 4R was slightly long, even with 4 inch heels (I am 5'1"). Very flattering, and not at all itchy with the sequins.

Amazing Dress for an Amazing Night!!!!
Absolutely perfect dress for a Brooklyn wedding. I am only 5 feet tall and was worried this would be too long. The fit was perfect ( with heels, of course)! Material was a little stretchy and hugged in all the right places. Would absolutely recommend, received soooo many compliments!

Gorgeous Stunner of a dress!
This dress is great for hourglass figures. You can wear a regular bra with it and the rouching in the stomach helps to cover larger stomach areas. The color is a beautiful burgundy and the dress is comfortable everywhere except a little scratchy under the arms.

subdued red colored sequin dress - sophisticated - fit like a glove. length was good.
with a 2"-3" heel - it would work out. felt like the neckline was swallowing me up a bit, but minor. spanx is needed to hide those midsection areas. definite hour-glass shape to the dress - its nice, one can breath in the dress, move around without worry.

Gorgeous dress. Compliments all night and I felt like a sales rep for RTR - and a princess for once!! So many had not heard of RTR but are going to try it now because of this dress. Perfect fit, so comfortable and gorgeous. I wore to my husbands annual Christmas Party and could not have chosen better!!

Attention: Plus sized gals!
This gown fits and wears beautifully. The color is beautiful and is a real eye catcher. The gown is sexy while still maintaining modesty. It fits true to size and is figure flattering. I am only 5'1.5 and it hit me perfectly wearing a 3 inch heel. If you are over I'd say 5'5 you may want to order the long version of this gown. Particularly if you are wearing a high heel. Match with a matte red lip and dare them not to stare!

Knockout red! You will be noticed for sure!
Although the shoulder straps are something to get used to, i was comfortable all night in this gorgeous gown! like any other sequin gown it will scratch up your arms a little but beauty is pain right? This was sent to me as a back-up dress and I ended up loving it more than the dress I was going to rent. Cant go wrong with Badgley Mischka and RTR! <3

Stunning dress - felt like Jessica Rabbit.
I don't even know how to describe how absolutely fabulous I felt in this dress. Although it was a bit long and I had to hem with fashion tape (I'm quite short so I knew this would be a thing), it was absolutely fantastic beyond that. I did have to use fashion tape to hold the one shoulder strap to my shoulder as I had read from other women in the reviews but this was easy and made it comfortable to wear the dress all night long. I received so many compliments in this dress I could not believe it. My hair actually matched the dress almost 100% perfectly and I felt like a sexy Jessica Rabbit the entire night. Would absolutely recommend anyone to rent it and would rent again myself if another event came up.

Gorgeous dress
I usually rent Badgley Mischka gowns because they fit my curvy figure really well. This one ran a bit tighter than the other sequined ones I've rented on the past. I am 5' 1" tall and my 3 inch heels were perfect. The dress just skimmed my toes and the little back train just hit the floor. So I didn't have to lift it up as much as I usually do. The color is beautiful. The matte sequins were surprisingly elegant. I'd rent again.

Classy and flattering
I rented this dress for Barrister's Ball (aka Law Prom), and I loved it. I got compliments all night on the fit, design, and color; it was a hit! It was also very comfortable, because it stretches quite a bit. I did have to wear spanx just because it does hug every single curve, but it was worth it. The only problem I had was with the top of the dress; the "sleeves" will slide up if you move your arms a lot (which made it hard to dance), but it wasn't TOO bothersome. I'm also glad I got the long instead of regular, because the hem hit the ground perfectly in my 4-inch heels. Overall, great dress for a formal event!

I kept getting compliments on this dress all night long!
Fits fairly true to size. Had a tiny bit of puffing in the lower back, but nothing super obvious. I am 5'1" and wore it with very tall heels (about 4-5in). With the high heels I didn't have to tape the length. Sequins were not uncomfortable at all. Definitely recommend!

I wore this dress to the opening night of a Broadway show. I got so many compliments!
I sized up to the 18, even though I usually wear a 16. The smaller dress was too tight in places and the 18, while definitely loose, was much more comfortable.

Perfect for the evening
I absolutely loved this dress. The sequins weren't too itchy and it was insanely comfortable for the whole night. The only downside is that I couldn't wear heels since I wasn't able to order the longer length option. I'm 5'7" and the regular length juuuust touched the ground for me. However I would suggest this dress for anyone.

Lovely evening among friends in a gorgeous dress!
Fit was great and hung nicely. I felt the dress ran very true to size. I agree with other reviews that tummy control is necessity (if you have that problem), but I received many compliments and felt beautiful!

This dress is absolutely GORGEOUS!!
I would say that it runs somewhat true to size... I'm usually a size 4 in dresses but I got a 6, just in case, since I am a little curvier in the hips. I wore this to my prom and it was very comfortable even through the dancing! Definitely a 5 star!

Fit was true to size and comfortable! I was able to wear a regular bra. Length was a little on the short side; just above my ankles. I wore flats instead of heels.

I wore this gown for our Church Christmas Banquet.
I loved the fit of this dress. The dress is very comfortable. If you're curvy, the dress will hug your figure. I did not have problems moving around throughout the event. I would rent from this brand again.

Celebrating with lifelong friends always makes this Mardi Gras weekend a fabulous time!
The color of this dress is a rich burgundy! The fit is true to size. I wore spanx to help keep my loveliness smooth! 😊 The length fell right below my ankles in front and longer in the back. At times I raised my dress slightly so my heels would not get caught. -- RTR is a wonderful experience! Their customer service exceeds all expectations!

Military ball to remember!
I am wearing a size 8 jeans but sometimes things run big so I ordered the 8 and 10 but the 8 fit PEEFECTLY! My body type, I'm 5'8" (I ordered the long) small waist, big booty and 34D boobs. The dress fit so well!! It looked like it was made for me! The sleeves did come up when I was dancing around or was ups lift my arms but honestly, it was cut even with the sleeves up so I really didn't mind. My only complaints or suggestions would be to wear your hair up. Mine was half up and would get caught in the sequins. Second, the sequins are a little irritating under the arms, but I think that can be expected from sequins in general.

fabulous dress!
This dress is very flattering and fits true to size. However, if you are broad shouldered you should size up. I fought the sleeves on this dress and the arm holes became scratchy over the course of the evening. I would definitely rent this again. If you are over 5'6" go with the long

Beautiful dress. The color is a little darker than what the picture portrays. You will need to secure the straps, as they roll up. The zipper sticks out a bit, but nothing to dramatic. Loved it!

Classy and Color!
Loved this dress! Of all my RTRs, it is probably the most comfortable bc of the slip underneath. I am normally afraid of color, so this was a great choice for me. I am 5'9 and wore heels with the long without issue. Highly recommend!

Perfect amount of sparkle for a formal affair!
I wore this dress to a formal gala, and it was very flattering. The sequins added a little glam, and loved the shape of the top/sleeves. It appears as a deeper red in person, but looks purple in photographs.

Rent The Run way is an awesome idea and worked perfectly! Highly recommended
My husband has an annual work event. I love that I can now wear a different dress every year without breaking the bank or filling up my closet. I wanted to also take maternity photos before- I'm 33 weeks pregnant and it worked out perfectly for the look I was going for. I received so many compliments and would highly recommend. Seemed to run a bit small considering normally I'm a size 4/6. In the shoulders it fit and this dress was a size 10. If planning on wearing heels though, I would for sure get a long.

Beautiful and unique
I loved this dress! I would definitely recommend spanx, but overall I'd say the dress fit was true to size. It was form fitting without being too tight for a semi work event. The neckline was beautiful and I was able to wear a regular bra with it. I wore cowboy boots (theme was Black Tie & Boots) with the dress and the length was perfect. If you plan to wear anything taller than a kitten heel, I'd suggest getting the long. I was at a very large event (10k+ people) where I'd say at least 1/4 of the women got their dress from RTW, so I was nervous about showing up in the same dress as several other women. Luckily, I didn't run into anyone else in this dress. If you're looking for something classy and stylish with a modest amount of sexy, this is your dress.

Perfect Baby Bump Dress!
I was so in love with the fit of this dress! I was concerned with my 26 week bump that it would be too tight, but the dress had plenty of stretch and fit it beautifully! I'm normally a 6 but ordered an 8L and it was perfect although I liked the length of the 10L better. I received non stop comments all night long! Would highly recommend and cannot wait to order my next dress!

The dress was stunning. I received so many compliments on the dress.
I'm busty so I had to use my back up size due to the girls being a little snug.
