Perfect fit & color!
Beautiful curves, details, and comfortable all night. I'm 5'5", 125lbs, 36b/34c, and could really wear the 2 or the 4, but chose the 2 that day. Great dress!

Gorgeous! Received compliments all night!
I am 5' 11" and 135 lbs, and the 4L fit really well. But it was almost too short in the front. I wore flats. It is a beautiful fabric, but it doesn't give very much. So if you are worried about sizing in the hips, just keep that in mind if you are going to be sitting a lot. Loved this dress! It was perfect for a charity gala.

Love this dress! It fit like a glove and the cobalt blue is stunning. Hope to wear it again!
The dress has a slight train which makes it even more elegant; ascending the stairs felt regal! The fabric is heavy enough to prevent those little bulges that may show on tight dresses. There is some boning along the waist, and it did end up irritating my skin by the end of the night (but that's probably because the fabric was a little worn where the boning ended). Otherwise it was absolutely perfect - I'm so glad I bought it!

Belle of the ball
I was so in love with this dress, I did not want to return it. I was long enough for a tall girl like me to wear about three or four inch heels, but no taller so I would not recommend if you are taller than me and want to wear them. Very thick fabric so you didn't have to wear any shape wear or a bra. A little difficult to get around in but man did I feel good in it. I also got about a million complements!

Nice, like new condition, not my favorite, but fit well. Just like in the picture.
This dress was nice, great condition, just as pictured. Though less material than I expected for a gown, thin and somewhat flat. It fit really well. For reference, I'm 5'5, 112lb, 34B, post baby x2. And the 0R fit with some room to take in, in the waist and hip. So I would say it runs a little big as I usually wear a size 2 or 4 in dresses. I would have worn this for a black tie wedding if I hadn't like the Monique L dress better (even though this dress was in much better condition, the fusia color of the Monique L dress did it for me.) Guess I just didn't like royal blue as much as I thought. Train was also a little long and dragged. Certainly beautiful dress, just didn't have the sparkle I was looking for.

Dress looks bettery in person, runs really smalll
This dress runs incredibly small, I would definitely size up one or two sizes. I typically wear a 6 in dresses to accommodate my upper body, even though my lower body is more of an 8. With this dress, the 8 was just right at the top but was really tight on my legs. I still wore the dress as going up a size would mean the top of the dress would be way too big.

Perfect dress for my event!
This dress is WONDERFUL! I am a relatively small girl of average height (5'6, 135-140 pounds, very slender athletic build with a curvy bottom half, 34B bustsize) so I am often worried about buying dresses because most that fit me in the bust, are too small for my hips/bottom and those that fit my hips/bottom are usually a little loose in the bust. This dress fit me really well, aside from a tiny bit of looseness in the bust that was barely noticeable to anyone but me. The quality was amazing, although it did arrive with the sash (that was supposed to be sewn down to the bodice) detached in one place but again, this was completely impossible for anyone but me to notice. Overall, I will absolutely shop RTR again and I had an amazing experience and I loved this dress!

Stunning color and elegant cut
This dress fits very long and was perfect for my proportions. The 6L was too large in the hips, the 4L was comfortable to move in, a bit large in the bust even though I'm 34DD. I wore a sticky bra and it was fine. I loved the material and the way it accentuated all the good curves !

Beautiful gown!
The dress looks rather shiny in the photo, but it's not as sleek a material-not silk. It was a bit tight in the mid-section and rode up a bit as I walked. Once I would settle in place though, the material fell and sat on me perfectly. It fit perfectly in the upper body and I didn't need to wear a bra. GORGEOUS GOWN!

Wonderful experience! Made Prom memorable.
Rented this gown for prom. Tried the size 0R on in the Georgetown store and it fit but ended up using the size 2R backup gown - thank God there was a backup! It fit like a glove. Received compliments all night long and felt like a princess. Rented the necklace and earrings too, which made the outfit stand out. Will use RTR again without hesitation!

Beautiful color & fabric, but cut very strange
I sent this back same day. It's as gorgeous as it looks. But the hips were very loose and the bust wouldn't zip. The gap to zip all the way up was about 6". Granted, I'm very busty. I was disappointed it didn't work out! Not good for narrow hips or large busts. Best for pear shapes.

Would have been perfect for law school prom!
This was my alternate for my law school prom, and while I loved it, I wished I hadn't read all of the reviews on this dress saying to size up--I sized up, and got my back-up as even bigger, and both were tents on me. I guess size up if you have a large chest (which I don't)? Or maybe if you're kidding yourself about your size? I'm sorry but I was so upset that I followed this advice because it was a beautiful gown I would have loved to wear if I'd just gotten my regular size. I highly recommend it for a formal event but make sure you only follow the tips of those with your body figure.

The fit, fabric & color were truly amazing! Great 1st RTR experience!
Absolutely gorgeous dress! The fit, fabric & color were awesome! If you're curvy, this dress flatters those areas! I was really worried that my hips were going to be too large for this mermaid type dress but the fit was amazing! I usually wear a 10 in loft, so I ordered a 12 which is probably more true to size. The bust was a little large, but with a padded strapless bra, it was no problem. Great military ball dress & I would highly recommend RTR!! #subball16

Stunning! Prom for Grown-Ups!
I wore this to a "prom for grown-up" cancer benefit and it was a hit! The options for unlimited formal gowns were very limited, so it was not my top ten choices. But it worked out for the event. It was very snug! So size up if your concerned. I wore spanx to prevent any lines. It was a little difficult to dance and move around in. I got a ton of compliments!! Beautiful color, much more bold then the photo. I am 5'7 and the regular length just his the floor with 3" heels. If your in that in between height go for the long. Very pleased with the dress overall

This dress definitely stood out in a sea of Little Black Dresses!
I received compliments on this dress from the time I stepped out of the car. It runs a little small (it was tight in the hips) and short, so order 1 size up from your normal dress size and order the long if you plan to wear any kind of a heel. Only the regular was available in my size, so I wore a kitten heel. Overall, I loved this dress!

Color is absolutely gorgeous
I rented this as part of my unlimited subscription with the hopes of wearing to a wedding. I generally tend to wear between an eight and a 10 in standard clothes but will sometimes rent a 12 in eveningwear. They only had the 10 so I figured I would give that a try. Unfortunately it was a bit too small as I expected but the dress was absolutely smashing. It is a little bit long and I would've struggled to wear it even in 4 inch heels but I think had it fit I would've dealt with it.

Absolutely stunning - people kept stopping me to tell me how pretty I looked!
A little tight. I'm between an 8-10L dress size currently and I went with the 8L since the 10L wasn't available. I made it work with some spanx. Great length - wore this with 3 include nude heals. Went bra-less and this fit perfectly in the bust.

Perfect for a military ball!
I ordered the 6R and the 8 as a back up. I have a bit of junk in the trunk, so the 6 was snug on my hips but I made it work. I tried the 8 but it was too big up top and the boning kept poking me in my ribs, and I kept having to pull it up. So I went with the 6. The only difficulty was walking because I'm only 5'3" and the dress is on the longer side. Got so many compliments on the color and style. I'd rent again!

I was looking for a Statement dress to wear to a local red carpet Oscars party. This was it.
I am 5'5", 120 lbs, and a size 4 in good clothing. This dress is very fitted and the fabric has no give, so if you are between sizes, definitely select the larger size. This dress was tight in the bodice, and as a 34B there was some extra room in the bust, but I just wore a padded strapless bra and since the dress is very structured, it stayed in place. As lots of others have said, the dress runs very long. I wore 5 inch platform heels and the dress was to the floor.

I wore this dress for our engagement shoot in October. The dress fit like a glove and it was perfect for my height because I am 6'0" tall. Damion was a great help and found the perfect dress for the occasion :)

Not for busty women, but the right size fits beautifully!
I am 34DDD and I had to end up ordering the 12R so that it fit the girls. I am normally a size 4 or 6 in Ann Taylor if that helps. The dress was incredibly flattering, although long and I was wearing VERY high heels. I had to be very conscious of the length the entire time as I was frequently stepping on the hem. You need to kick as you walk! All, in all, I received many compliments.

STUNNING!!!! Color and cut were perfection!
This dress was sent to me as a replacement when my original rental was damaged and I couldn't have been happier. The color is unreal!! In my opinion, the 2L dress ran TTS to slightly big. The length was perfect (I am 5'7 and wore 4 in heels). The cut was extremely flattering and comfortable. I felt like a princess! Thank you RTR for having such awesome customer service.

The dress is absolutely flattering and beautiful. I felt like there was room to eat/drink on NYE!
I couldn't wear a strapless bra with this, but just stuffed the bust area in the dress a bit to get some lift. The dress is flattering in EVERY picture - I have a bit of a lower tummy but you could not tell at all. Totally beautiful, will be using rent the runway again. I think a 6R would have worked as well (I have broad shoulders/collarbone but a very narrow ribcage, and then sizeable hips)!

Absolutely LOVED this gown. Felt like pure royalty! All eyes on me on the dance floor. Unforgettable
I'm 5'7 and had on 3' heels, and the dress still swept the floor. So it's long, but it didn't take away from the comfort of being in the dress. You will not trip over it like other long dresses.

Hugged curves perfectly!
This dress is a great royal blue in person and fits great (a little snug in the hips for me) but the 8 was perfect. I'm 5'3" and 145 lbs and wore 4-4.5 inch heels which worked out well. I didn't have to even wear a bra and I have a pretty big chest, if anything it made me look smaller and I didn't have to keep pulling the dress up throughout the night.

Loved this dress! Very flattering and surprisingly comfortable.
Had to grab this last minute when I didn't like the original dress I ordered. This was a 4L definitely too long for me (I'm 5'2" and I wore 4" heels) but I loved the fit so I made it work. Couldn't zip it up with a bra on so I went without and it was supportive and flattering. The fit around the waist and hips was perfect. I wore this dress for 7 hours and I was very comfortable all night. So happy I exchanged the first dress for this one, I would definitely rent it again.

Sized up since other reviews said the hips were tight, and I'm glad I did! The color is truly stunning and the fabric although heavy still felt light. I wore platformed heels and the length was perfect. I will definitely rent this dress again! I felt like a million bucks!

Felt like Royalty #BarbieDoll
The color was amazing. I got so many compliments on my complexion with the tone of this dress, the elegance, and fit of the dress. I have a hourglass shape and it hugged my curves perfectly. Accenting every thing to make me look sexy and elegant. I felt phenomenal wearing this. The train is long and I needed to wear 5.5inch heels but I wouldn't have had it any other way. The sheen and cut in the back were my favorite points about this. I can't rave about it enough. I had people asking me to buy it from me or suggest I wear it to other events! Definitely a show stopper. Heavy and luxurious fabric makes you feel the expensive nature of this dress!!

Love this dress! I wish I could have kept it. The 2L was too long. I only rented it because it was the only size in the store. A 2R would have probably fit better, but I used hem tape and it worked out just fine.
