Gorgeous gown!
I received so many compliments on this dress. I normally wear a size 6, but the 4R fit great. As others commented, the sequins did start to bother my upper arms by the end of the night. Overall, beautiful and comfortable.

Really wanted to wear this for a charity gala, but it was too short.
Fit perfectly in bust, waist and hips, but the length was not long enough. (Finding a dress while 6'2 is NOT fun.)

Very comfortable and forgiving stretchy fabric. Ordered the LONG or it would have been too short (I'm 5f 9in)

Perfect for standing out in a crowd!
This dress was amazing! I️ wore it to a black tie wedding in the fall and got compliments the whole night. The green is beautiful and it fit like a glove. It wasn't too tight to dance in and the sequins only started rubbing my arms at the end of the night after I'd had it on more than 6 hours. I️ wore the long since I️ had 3 inch heels and it was perfect (I'm 5'6"). The only negative was there were some hairs stuck in the sequins from the last renter but I️ was able to pull them out before the event.

We went to a fundraising gala and this was our first Black Tie event together
This dress fit PERFECTLY! I'm a 32B, with 37in hips, so I was concerned about the 2R fitting, but there is a hidden side zipper that makes all the difference! the material is stetchy too, so it hugs where it should, but was heavy enough to never ride up. I felt like a million bucks. I'm 5'3-5'4, and I wore 2.5 inch heels and it fell to the perfect length for me, it never dragged, but covered my shoes. I was definitely warm in this though - so if you're going somewhere warm, remember that you're covered in sequins and they DO NOT breath. It was cold outside where I am, and a good temp inside of the event, so I was never hot or cold once inside.

Perfect in every way!
I'm 30 weeks pregnant and was super nervous about trying to find a formal dress for the gala my office attended. RTR did not disappoint! This dress is so flattering! The 12 R fit great, but was just too short for me, thankfully the 16R was longer. I would suggest getting the Long if you plan on wearing heels are are taller than 5 foot! This dress was breath taking, I got nothing but complements all night long!

I felt great in this dress...even being 4 months postpartum and my body not where I wanted it to be
This dress was quite comfortable. It did take some experimenting with the right combination of undergarments and bra to find what I was comfortable and confident with. I'm 5'8", wore heels, and ordered a long. It was almost not long enough though.

Beautiful Fall 60th Anniversary Party
I was very skeptical about ordering a dress online especially because it was for a special event and I didn’t have time to shop around if it didn’t work. I was quickly proven wrong...the dress got here on time and fit perfectly. Mine wasn’t itchy as some reviewed and it did hug in all the right places. It was beautiful and the open back was sexy and classy. I’m 5’2, wore 4 inch heels and the length was perfect. I would suggest if you are petite and going to where heels then stick with the “regular” size. I got so many compliments throughout the night and was so sad to send it back! Loved loved loved!!!

Beautiful dress! The 6L was long enough to wear kitten heels. It was relatively comfortable, and the material is heavy enough that it doesn't show every little line or bump.

Everyone LOVED this! Got compliments all night long and I felt incredible!
I would say this dress runs short. I think I'm average height (5'6) but had to wear the long even though I didn't wear heels! I rented both 4 Regular and 2 Long and didn't notice much difference in the rest of the fit, just the length - the regular showed my ankles! This is form fitting, yet comfortable. The sequins may catch on things, so be careful!

This dress is gorgeous! It was a little too "holiday" for this wedding.
It was very light. I could have worn a strapless bra even with the dip in the back.

This dress is a showstopper!
Like the true procrastinator I am, I waited until 2 days before an event to even start looking for dresses to wear. I fell in love with this dress immediately and rented it with no regrets. I felt like a mermaid queen all night, and it was REALLY hard to send the dress back because I enjoyed it so much. If you are in between two sizes, go up a size and order the longer size- you will thank me later. I ordered the R and when I tried it on, it was too short. After a few tears and a few hours later, I put the dress on for real for the event, and it ended up fitting just right. 10/10, would rent again!

Comfortably elegant
I rented this for a last minute formal party. I had a baby two years ago and my tummy area is still not the same as it was. But this dress made me feel pretty and elegant. And most important of all, comfortable! It fits true to size and there's a bit of give in the material. I'm 5'3" and wore 4" heels and it was a bit short (my shoes showed, which I personally don't like). So if you want to wear taller heels you might want to get the longer dress.

Gorgeous!! So many compliments all evening long! Both the 4R and 2R fit well but the 2R was just a bit more comfortable at the top. The material is a bit stretchy which made for a comfortable gown to sit, stand, dance, and eat! The sequins are not a bother. You'll look perfect in a sea of matte finish dresses - it really stands out without being flashy. I don't want to send it back!

As comfortable as it is beautiful!
I am usually I size 4 but I went with the size 2L because I liked the tighter fit. Not only is it a stunning dress it was SO comfortable! I felt the scratching of the sequins by the arm pit that other reviews remarked about, but it didn't bother me at all. I got my foot caught on the back of the dress a couple of times but it was still easy to walk around and dance in. I got compliments all night long! Definitely a wonderful dress and it makes me sad to send it back.

I absolutely loved the color and fit of this sophisticated dress!
I wore this to a formal evening wedding in the fall and it was the perfect choice. FIT: I am in between a 14 and a 16, and definitely needed the Long size. However, note that the tag inside the dress did not say 14L or 16L, so I THINK I got a Long. At 5'11 and with 3 inch heels on, it was a tad short in front, but certainly long enough in back. (You can see in the picture) COMFORT: I was worried this dress would be uncomfortable due to the sequins, but the dress is lined and stretchy, so it was extremely comfortable. PROS: the back is super sexy, and the dress seems to change color in different light, going from forest green to emerald depending on the light.

Gorgeous green gown!
I wore this to a Mardi Gras ball. Fit is true to size. I'm 5'5" and wore 3" heels and the 4L dress was perfectly touching the floor. I ordered the 6L for a backup and there wasn't that much difference between the two. I felt that the 4L hugged the waist better. I wore a nubra with the dress, but you could go without a bra because the material is thicker. You could possibly get away with wearing a regular bra, but you'd have to tuck the back drape of the dress into the back of your bra. It's a gorgeous emerald green color, and the sequins didn't really bother my arms at all.

Worn this as a bridesmaid dress, and MAN! I got soooo many compliments!
The fit was amazing. It was almost as if the dress had been tailored to me. I loved the sequins, but I'd definitely recommend wearing an up-do to avoid it snagging on them. Overall, I was SO SAD to return this dress and would absolutely rent it again!

I wore this to a work gala. It was perfect. Received so many compliments.
I'm usually a 6 (4 on a good day). I ordered a 6 and a 4 long because of my height so glad I did. I went with the 4L which was perfect. Fit like a glove. Very comfortable and flattering. 4 inch heels for reference.

Incredible Dress, but...
I ended up wearing the 6R because the 4R was about 3" too short with flats on. If you are 5'5" or taller, go with the longer length. Even with the size 6R, I was still pulling it down all night. Overall, the dress was beautiful. I got a ton of compliments and noticed eyes on me and the dress all night. The 6R was a bit big, but to get the length I wanted, it was what I had to do. If I could go back, I would have preferred a 4 in case he longer length, and I think it would have fit perfectly. Definitely recommend this dress. It was stunning.

Me and my 2 girlfriends all got sequin gowns from RTR and called ourselves the sequin squad!
Fit was as expected. Dress was heavy but I liked the thick lining as I didn't have to wear a bra. Dress was barely long enough, could not wear heels. But I loved the dress and got so many compliments! I will be using rent the runway again! I am 5'11 and 160 lbs.

I loved this dress, and I felt so elegant in it! The material was stretchy, so the fit was comfortable.

I'm 5'2, normally an 8. And the 6R was perfect with a 2' heel. I am also a 34DD and didn't wear a bra but it was fine all night. A complete show stopper. Compliments and looks galore. The wedding was at a Tuscan inspired venue and my greens were perfect compliments to everything. I felt comfortable, sexy and happy.

When you walk in a room and realize you have the best dress, that's a great feeling.
Fit like a glove that moved when I did. Couldn't have asked for a better dress. Had to hold the bottom for a little while walking but with 4 inch heels a slower pace is fine.

Holiday Party Perfect!
This dress was perfect for a work holiday party. I ended up wearing my backup size (2L) because the 4R looked a little more "worn" and some of the sequins looked a little rough in places. I actually preferred the more snug fit. The fabric draped in a flattering way, and hugged in the right places, but I did end up wearing spanx to smooth my tummy. Due to the low back, I did opt to go bra-less. I was afraid the 2L would be too long for my 5'4" frame, but it was perfect length with 3inch heels. Kind of scratchy on the arms due to the sequins, but it wasn't too bad. Overall, a fantastic 1st RTR experience.
