This dress made me feel so elegant and beautiful and I received so many compliments on it.

I am a size 2 and the 2R for like a glove! It hugged my curves in all the right places. I wore this for the Marine Corps Ball and it was perfect for the occasion. It is such a sophisticated and classy dress, but with the back draping low it's also a little sexy. I wouldHIGHLY recommend this dress!

Perfect amount of shimmer!!

This dress has a slight stretch which is great for hourglass shapes , definitely order the long if you're 5'7" or taller. Cons make sure to put your hair in something when taking dress off!

I felt like a movie star!

I usually wear a 16 but had to go a size up to the 18. Probably could have worn the 16, but felt my shoulders were a little too broad for it. I was worried the dress may be too long cause I'm pretty short, but it was actually a perfect length! Overall, I am so happy with this dress! I felt like a movie star wearing it! :)

Loved this dress. It sparkled and had all the wow feelings you could want in a dress.

Was too big on me, i went a size up for extra room but still felt amazing. This was a stunning dress. Im 5'1 and got the regular length. In flats it still showed my feet . Go long if you're tall .

This dress was so beautiful! I received so many complements!! Very comfortable as well.

This was my first time using RTR and I was a bit nervous about how it would fit. I ordered the 8R and the 6R. I'm short but am always wearing my high heels when going out. I ended up wearing the size 8R. I'm very curvy and only 5'2. My everyday clothes are usually an 8 as well. My bust is 36DD, which really showed off their size without being revealing. The dress fit perfect! I received so many complements all night. People in the hotel lobby, guests at the wedding, and even a young couple walking outside, told me how beautiful the gown was. This dress made me feel amazing. The front is a bit shorter than the back, which I wasn't expecting, so I couldn't wear the higher shoes I had wanted to, but luckily I had a back up pair of shoes that were a bit shorter. I would recommend this dress and RTR to anyone!

I felt so glamorous! I kept getting compliments all night!

So comfortable to wear I didn't want to take it off! The only thing I was disappointed with is that I had ordered a Long so I could wear this dress with heels. When I first tried it on the dress barely skims the floor and I'm only 5'6"! I ended up wearing the larger size so it skimmed over my body since I'm conscious of my belly. Loved how it gave me an hourglass shape where I normally don't have one! I would definitely rent this dress again!

Speedy delivery and well taken care of dresses!

This came just in time for my engagement pictures and it looked stunning on! I normally wear a size 4, but I gained a little weight recently so had to wear the size 6. I like my food so I had a little pooch that you could definitely see in the professional photos, but I don't really care. If you have a little bit of a belly, I would wear some spanx (that I completely forgot to do). It was only a couple inches too long in my 4in heels, but I'm 5'1" so I got it knowing it would be a little long. Great experience with RTR, I would definitely do it again!

The dress was perfect, fit like a glove!

I am 5'10" and 120 pounds so the fit was true to size. wore 3 inch heels, the dress has a bit of a train so the heels made it the perfect length. It has a side zip to easily get it on and has a bit of stretch too. You need a very low back bra OR you can tuck the fabric in the back over your bra strap. The draped fabric is triangle shaped and has a weight in it to hold it down so that's perfect to tuck in. I got this dress last minute after the others I ordered didn't work so no time to get the right bra but it didn't matter, I could hide it easily. I loved everything about this dress and received compliments all night, it did not disappoint.

This dress is a show-stopper!! Received SO many compliments! And it's super comfortable!

The fit was great! I had a baby 9 months ago so I'm still in between sizes so I got the 8L as well but I was looking for a more fitted look and the 6L gave me just that. I'm 5'7 and wore 3-4 in heels and the length was perfect!

We wanted to take pregnancy photos and since I was getting so big I wanted to feel glamorous.

Stretches a lot and is super comfy. Can't wear a regular or strapless bra with the open back. Shouldn't be a problem if it is the right size as it'll hug you.

Wore this to my law school prom. Everyone loovvveeedddd this dress! First time using RTRW. Thumbs up

Although the dress was gorgeous it was a little big up top. Maybe the dress is better for women with a bigger upper body. Also, the seam was torn by the zipper which was disappointing but no one really noticed except me.

Made me feel absolutely gorgeous!

I wore this for my senior prom and I couldn't have been more pleased! I'm normally a size 14 but I went with the 16WL. If you're wearing heels, definitely get the long. The short stopped at my ankles and looked a little awkward. I did wear spanx underneath, but the dress was super comfortable. The back is sexy without being too low. I felt so amazing about myself when I wore this!

Beautiful dress but tall women beware!

Both the 8L and the 10L fit beautifully up top, though if I had worn the dress I would've chosen the 8 simply Bc it hugs the curves a little better. I am 5'7" and without the shoes the dress just barely grazed the floor. With 3-4 inch heels, the dress hit the top of my foot. I prefer my gowns to go over my feet and drag a bit on the floor, so if you're like me and you're 5'7" or up, not even the long is going to help you. Besides the length issue, it is otherwise a beautiful dress and comes out wonderfully in pics!

DAZZILING!

I loved this dress! Wore this for the Air Force Ball. It was right on target for the level of formality, but still very comfortable. The fit was very true to size. I usually wear a 16 to be comfortable and this was perfect. Even in the tough heat of the south, the long sleeves weren't too hot. If you are wearing heels, I recommend getting the long dress. With my shorter heels, it was just the right length. I felt like a movie star the whole night! I would rent this dress again and again.

A show stopper!

I wore this for a black tie wedding and the fit was perfect! There was a little give so dancing was easy and comfortable. It hugged all the right places and hid the soft part of my stomach. I received lots of compliments all night! My first rent the runway experience and I'm hooked.

Black tie wedding in Charleston! This dress was the perfect choice!

The dress was short for me so I had to wear flats (I'm 5'11'') Also the sleeves were a bit short for my long arms but I pulled them up a bit to give more of a 3/4 sleeve look which I really liked. Probably won't be a problem for ladies of more average height :) A regular bra can be worn with this if you go to a place like Target and buy a strap that converts your regular bra into a low back one. It worked like a charm for me!

Loved it

I am heavier than I would like to be right now and super self conscious about my body, especially my arms and tummy. This dress was gorgeous, very flattering and sexy, comfortable and easy to wear. I am short (5'4") but got the long since I love heels and it was perfect. The 12 was a little big, but overall true to size and comfortable to wear. Highly recommend!

Photographs beautifully!

I wore this for our xmas photoshoot. The dress was a bit small. I usually wear a size 12 but this was a 14 and was a bit snug, but perhaps thats the style. The length was a big con for me. I am 5'4" and I was hoping the dress was long enough to cover my shoes but it didn't. I also felt it was a bit itchy. I only had it on for a couple of hours. On the flip side, is truly beautiful and makes you feel very glamorous. Our photos turned out wonderful. And despite the cons, I would rent it again. The experience with RTR itself was excellent. No complaints there.

Sparkle heaven

This was such a beautiful dress! The fit was phenomenal. It is very stretchy like other reviewers have mentioned. The back is low but I was able to wear a normal bra with it and it didn't show. I would recommend spanx under it as it is really form fitting and not very forgiving. Im 5.5" and got this in OR and OL and went with the L because with the R, the train was invisible because the dress barely touched the floor. I would recommend the long for anyone over 5.4 if you're planning on wearing heels.

I wore this to a "creative black tie" event for NYE. It fit great and I got lots of compliments from strangers all night. I am about 5'6 and wore 3.5" heels. The dress was still a little long but I liked it that way.

This gown is everything!

This gown is incredibly comfortable. The sleeves are long, but that didn't matter. You can safely wear this gown without a bra. The open back was what I wanted but I could have sized down to the 2 and I wouldn't have worried so much about making sure it stayed on my shoulders.

It was the best dress at the event!

I needed a silver dress for a Fire and Ice fundraiser. I saw in the reviews that it ran large so I took a chance and ordered the 2. Typically I am a 4. The dress fit like a glove. The back is sexy without revealing too much. It was the perfect dress for the event. Everybody loved it including me. It photographed well too.

Perfect fit and plenty of sparkle!

I wore this dress to a charity gala. It was stunning in person. Loved the color. The sequins didn't look as high-end as I was thinking, but still loved the dress. Only downside was the lining wasn't tacked very well, so I had to readjust the layers a few times throughout the night to make sure it was laying smoothly. I'm 5'8" and the long was prefect, I wore 3" heels.

This dress was amazing! If it in all the right ways and all the right places.

This dress was amazing! If it in all the right ways and all the right places. I also was very comfortable and I was able to even assist in a few of the pre-wedding decorating last minute changes while in the dress. This just does get a bit warm so I didn't wear any undergarments it's nearly impossible because of the open back so just keep that in mind when renting. I am happy I didn't either. I am 5'4 and I was 150 pounds very curvy at that time and a size 8 fit very well.

Beautiful and comfortable

Loved this dress. It was comfortable and glamorous, and perfect for a late-January winter black tie optional event. Our event was 1920s/Great Gatsby-themed, and this felt like the perfect level of glamour. I was able to wear a regular bra - with the help of a safety pin and some fabric tape, I used some of the cowl in the back to hide the bra strap. The dress fabric was heavy, but not uncomfortable. I felt like the fabric flowed beautifully and hid my tummy. It creates a great hourglass shape. Be careful putting on or taking off because the sequins can get caught on hair. This is my favorite gown I have ever rented on RTR. The gunmetal dark gray is spectacular and stands out in a sea of black evening gowns. Highly recommend!

Stunning Dress (Preggo Approved!)

I was about 5 1/2 months pregnant when I had to attend this black tie event. I needed a dress that can show off the baby bump without feeling like I'm in a straight jacket. This was the PERFECT dress. It's figure hugging with a great stretch. I was a little nervous on how this dress would fit... I want it to hug my baby bump without looking baggy everywhere else. I ended up wearing the size 8 and I usually wear a 6. So, if you're pregnant and you've popped, I recommend sizing up from your usual size (to fit the baby bump comfortably) and it should fit great. This dress is fully lined, so no itching/scratching from the sequins. I felt beautiful (hubby confirmed) and received endless compliments.

Stunning

Stunning was the compliment I received the entire evening! Loved this dress. I ordered a 6L and an 8L. The 6 was too short and too small in the bust so I went with the 8. The waist was way too big but the material of the gown laid well and didn't think it was too noticeable. It was comfortable to wear all night

This was so easy and my rentals came early and i was pleased with the quality of both my dresses.

This was my second style selected and although i wish i could say this just isnt a flattering picture, the dress just wasnt very flattering. I would say this was true to size. I am 5'3" and the length was fine with standard pumps and it zipped easily. However i have narrow shoulders which made the fit awkward. Im sure this is a pretty dress, but i imagine it looking better on longer legged people with better shoulders for the long boatneck and draped back.

Perfect Winter Black Tie Dress!!

This was my "just in case style" and I couldnt have been more happy. I am curvy, more lately during the holiday season so went with the 6 eventhough the 4 fit fine. This dress was thick but also moveable i was able to dance all nighy! It fell just right on my hips and bum. I wore a sticky bra but it was tight enough to feel secure.
