It was a cotton club themed wedding reception and this dress did not dissapoint
I ordered the 4L and 6L I went with the 4L for the better fit. If you are over 5'5 get the Long the length was perfect with heels and very elegant, I got so many compliments all night long!!!

Ultimate party gown!
Beautiful details, not too heavy so still great for dancing. The 2 fit as well but I wanted a little less tight on the stomach.

Customer Service was perfect !
I order from a different company and it was a nightmare. A week before the wedding I order from Rent the runway and when I receive the order the dress fit me but I was not comfortable Since it was too short. I called and they send me the same dress in a larger size overnight and it was perfect! This dress is soo comfortable and elegant got a lot of compliments. I will order again from Rent the Runway. All the bridal party order drom here and nobody had any issue.

Very comfortable for pregnant ladies.
I was 6 months pregnant and needed something for a formal event. I figured I could either hide under a tent of a dress, or rock what I had. This dress was perfect. The material is breathable and I never got too warm. I could have been wearing my t-shirt and sweatpants it was so comfortable. The material is stretchy. I was concerned the sequins would appear to be patterned, as they were in some photos/reviews... there was no detectable pattern to the gown. I stayed right on target as far as weeks to inches, so this was probably about a 25 inch (top to bottom as your physician or midwife measures you) belly in this photo. I was a 34D pre-pregnancy, and in this photo, I'm probably a 36 or 38DD. I'm 5'4" and wore 3.5" heels. The 12R was just a little big. I probably would have been perfect in a 10R, but I wasn't sure my belly would fit. Honestly, don't get too tied up in your hip & waist measurements, this dress flexes. That's what I love about it. The real measurement you want to worry about is your shoulder width because of the low back. I went to a few websites that sell consignment Badgley Mishka gowns and used those reported measurements as a guide. If you get your bust & shoulder measurement right, the rest of the gown will work with your beautiful pregnant lady body and you'll look amazing on the outside, even if you're dealing with the challenges being preggo can sometimes bring to your insides. So drink yourself another glass of water, and rent the dress gorgeous mama!

Talk about KNOCK OUT!!
This dress is amazing! First off, this is my 3rd rental from this Brand and I'm SHOCKED by how well every dress from this brand fits! The cut is amazing for my curvy figure!! The sleeves were perfect (since I'm a little self conscious about them)!! And the back, oh my lanta!! That was perfect! You'll definitely need some kind of low back bra or silicon boob things because a regular bra DEFINITELY will not work for this dress! But with all of the sparkle from the dress, you don't really need any jewelry! Just something small for earrings, but no bracelet of necklace needed! Would totally rent this one again!

Everyone wanted to steal my dress!
I wore this dress for a vocal competition I was singing in. I wanted something that would stand out and be a show stopper. And indeed it was, the MC for the night literally stopped the show to brag about how gorgeous my dress was. I made it through to the final round of competition with help from the dress! Love it!

Amazing dress!
The dress I wore was a size 2R and it was a bit wide on the sides- I think it was stretched by previous users. It wasn't too wide but it didn't feel snug. You have to be careful matching your accessories!

More Sequins Than the Dancers at a Dance Competition
Holy Oscars Feels, Batman. This dress had me feeling like I could maybe, just maybe, be best friends with Blake Lively someday. It runs REAALLLLY big though. I am a consistent 6 in everything I ever get from RTR and the 4L was still a little too roomy in places for me.

Stunner!!!! For a New Years Eve Wedding.
Perfect fit, insanely comfortable and I worse this dress 2 months post-partum. The sequins were soft enough that I could enjoy my evening and hold my newborn when I needed to! I received so many compliments on this dress, but really I just felt great in it!

Show stopper!
Beautiful dress! Looked great in pictures! I was the maid of honor in my brothers wedding and this dress was completely stunning! The 10L was my preferred size, but it was a little too short. The 12L was a bit big but worked and was the perfect length. Overall gorgeous dress!

So comfy yet elegant
This dress runs large...about a size and a half large. I am normally a 4/6, rented this in the 4 and I could have easily worn the two. In any event, the dress was very comfortable and looked very elegant on. If I didn't have a thing about wearing the same dress twice, I would absolutely rent this dress again. I am 5'3", and with heels on the long fit fine. I would not recommend getting the petite or regular. If you need boobs support, go to Neiman Marcus and get their backless, strapless bra that sticks on the sides. I am a 34C and it was a miracle worker

The dress fit my body type perfect, I am curvy woman with wide hips & round bottom with a stomach. The dress hugged my curves in the right way, I wore a undergarment to give a smooth look with the gown. This gown is a showstopper

This dress is perfect for a black tie occasion. Got compliments all night.
The fit was true to size. It is a little heavy and with the liner inside of it, it can become quite warm so I'm not sure I'd recommend it for an outside wedding (at least during the summertime). I did find the sleeves to be slightly long.

Great dress ! It was true to size and very comfortable. I wore a 4" heel and dress seemed a little short. I would suggest ordering the Long if plan on wearing a high heel.

I wore the dress to a beautillion and received compliments all night. It fits like a glove and the quality is incredible. I tried on a similar dress by the same designer in the D.C. store because I don't have the body type to just buy offline. Malia, the stylist was wonderful!

It was a great night of food, dancing, laughs and friends. This dress did the job wonderfully!
I am normally a size four and almost got the 6R as my back-up size but so glad I didn't! I am 5'3 and 120 pounds and the 2R was perfect! This dress is comfy, gorgeous, and just easy to wear! I didn't feel like I needed a ton of under garments to make it all work. Sequence wasn't itchy and you just feel great in it.

Stunning dress!
This dress was absolutely gorgeous on the hanger and when worn. I got so many compliments while wearing this dress in a wedding. I typically wear a size four, but would have gone with a two long since the four was a little loose. Perfect length with heels.

I FELT LIKE A QUEEN ON PROM
Rent The Runway is a real LIFE SAVER! My original prom dress situation was a mess! Days before prom I had no dress and RTR swooped in and saved the day! I absolutely loved this dress. It's really fitting, and hugs your body perfectly. I am very top heavy as you can see but my stomach is flat and my hips are wide. I ordered a 12 and a 10 but I really would've been fine with an 8! I wore a bra with this dress and just tucked the back of the dress into the bra so no straps were showing. Only cons I have about this lovely dress is it will get caught on hair! LOL! Other than that you will love this dress! I ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND:)

This dress was perfect for my senior formal. I got compliments all night long!
This dress fits true to size. I had on pumps and this dress was still the perfect length. I had to buy a sticky bra since this dress dips low in the back. I also got some high wasted spanks to help enhance my hour glass figure and keep everything in place since this dress if form fitting through the hips.

Did 3 outfit changes for the event, as I was the hostess. This was the crowd's favorite.
I'm skinny and tall, and the site was out of 4L, so I had to go with the 6L. It was big in the waist. I wore heels, which the dress did reveal my toes a bit. Once I took them off, the dress does reach the floor all the way around. Height: 5'9.25" Weight: 138 Bust Size: 36B Body Type: Straight and Narrow/Athletic

Get a long! Most perfect dress!
I'm about 5'10 and I originally ordered a 4R and a 6R but after looking at the reviews I changed them to Ls (the 4L was already taken though). I didn't wear heels because I'm already tall so I would recommend getting a long heels or not unless you're a lot shorter than me! I received compliments all night and the dress was stunning this picture didnt do the gold justice! The only problem I had was the front of the dress didn't fit as well it was more loose than fitted whereas if I had gotten an 4L it probably would have fit perfectly. But this was the most inexpensive prom I've had and would recommend to anyone!

Glitzy Gold Gown Was A Serious Showstopper
I wore this gorgeous gold gown for my mountaintop engagement shoot. It photographed beautiful and looked just as magical as I had hoped. I was able to wear this without a bra, but if that makes you uncomfortable, you will definitely need something backless. It is form fitting in all the right ways and true to size. Despite ordering a 6L, it was still somewhat short on my 5'11" frame. I was barefoot so it didn't matter much, but keep that in mind. I loved it so much that I'm having my bridesmaids wear the capped sleeve version on our wedding day!

This dress is stunning. Was definitely a show stopper.
Great dress but for me it ran a little big. I would suggest going a size down because if has a lot of stretch.
