This dress was much more than I thought it would be-my backside never looked better!!

RTR customer service was second to none-I live in rural area and rented this to be a bridesmaid for an out of town wedding-they extended my rental and sent it early and the second size thing was a life saver! I have been telling everyone about RTR-I had a great experience and can't wait for another occasion to rent. I WISH YOU DID COAT RENTALS!!!!!

I received so many compliments from total strangers while wearing this dress!

Wore it to a company holiday party and then a friend's holiday party later the same night. Super comfy, but too big in the bust for me (I'm a 40 DD). It gaped too much and I was concerned I'd have to fuss with it all night. I was able to pin the top in a way to create a draped neckline look and then it was perfect. I was in three inch heels but it was almost too long (I'm 5'6") and I had to be very careful to hold it up. But, I felt fabulous and I would buy this dress!

Love it! Got 18L (& 20L just in case) 18L fit perfect! Wore it for high school prom (Gatsby themed).

Pros: great length, well-fitted, beautifully elegant style Cons: not recommended for small busts, some stray strings of fabric but BARELY even noticeable (nothing to worry about) #prom #Gatsby

Amazingly gorgeous dress but beware...any "Mummy Tummy" will show in this dress. Had to suck it in all night but other than that, it was old Hollywood Glamour! I'll be a forever customer RTR!!!

I loved my backup more than my original!

This was my backup dress after I received two dresses that definitely ran small. Same designer so I chose this one and in one size up from the largest in the previous dress. Well, it was BIG but I made it work. I did have to hold the dress up to walk since it was a long and if you don't have the right size in this dress, you may have to adjust the top from time to time. Overall I'm so glad I chose to wear this one to the Margarita Ball and received quite a few compliments.

Stunning gown for formal affair

It fit well but I was a little self conscious of my mid section throughout the evening. The glittery material was not *super* forgiving to me. With that being said, it photographed well and I got a lot of compliments. Considering the fact that it's made up of sequins, I thought it was pretty darn comfortable.

Perfect! I didn't even have to wear my backup size and my girls (36HH) fit into the dress nicely.

Sooo may compliments! This was my first rental and definitely not my last. The length was perfect enough to wear heels with the dress lightly brushing the floor. Material is stretchy and the design of the dress hides imperfections in tummy area. I loved the railings the back. I felt like royalty.

I felt glamorous!

I loved the dress and I got so many compliments. I did feel like my tummy showed more than I would have liked, even with some shape wear. My hair got stuck to the sequins in the dress so I had to wear it in an updo. But overall this is really a lovely dress!

Perfect dress for a wonderful occasion

This was my first experience with RTR and I must say it was a positive one. The gowns arrived rather late on Friday evening and I was a bit panicked because the event was Sunday and the late arrival left me little time to get a replacement dress. Fortunately, I didn't need one. I would say the dress runs true to size. I wore the 16 but I could have worn the 14 because the shoulder area was a little big but the dress fit everywhere else. I received tons of compliments! I felt beautiful and glamorous. Hubby was wowed and that was all that matter!

Amazing time with friends while feeling glamorous

The fit was nice on the shoulders and the stomach. It did a weird thing with my boobs which I don't love. But The compliments were coming in left and right. Made me feel so elegant <3

The dress was exactly what I was hoping for. I loved the way it was shipped and packaged and it was so very comfortable. I got compliments all night. I would definitely rent the runway again!

You will be the star attraction!! It's a glittery sheath with lots of well placed ruching. If you are self conscious about your tummy it's not a good choice but it really makes your backside look fantastic! Celebrate the good bopo vibes and embrace all your curves!

I received so many compliments on this dress and how great it showed off my curves.

We were attending the Human Rights Campaign Gala and were surrounded by hundreds of discerning gay men, so I was thrilled to have gotten so many compliments! Dress fit perfectly and it was so much fun to wear something other than black to try and hide flaws or fade into the background.

I loved this dress. It fit like a glove. And comfortable! I got so many compliments all night long. The right undergarments make a difference, but I felt so confident. Absolutely the perfect dress for the event.

Rented this for my husband's military ball. It was a beautiful dress but just too distracting next to his uniform. I ended up going with my black backup dress

This dress was ALL GLITZ & GLAM! I felt like a JEWEL in the dress!

I wore this for a pageant and I absolutely loved it. I loved the sleeves that allowed for my shoulders to show. I'm short but with heels I was able to twirl and slayyyy in this dress. If you're looking for a showstopper, this is it! I won 1st place too!! I definitely felt incredible in this dress! RTR is the absolute best!

Weird boning made this impossible to wear

There was boning in the bust AND arms that poked me everywhere and was physically poking out of the dress. It was impossible to wear and I had to send for something different.

I have never worn a gold dress before and I loved how radiant it made me look.

I have recently lost weight so I was not sure about my size. The only way it could have fit better is if I could have worn a petite. I'm only 5'2" and it was something else having to pick up the skirt before stepping forward. Still, I loved the dress and my first experience with RTR. I will be back for sure!

I felt so glamorous and got SO many compliments!

This dress was utterly fabulous!! I turned so many heads and received so many compliments. I am still not used to the lbs I packed on while having babies, and I still look about 4-5 months pregnant. This dress was SOOO flattering to my ginormous midsection. I may have needed a smaller size - the front could gape a bit unless I kept my shoulders back, which forced me to have better posture throughout the night. Overall, this was a great experience for my first time using rent the runway - I will definitely use it again!

Lots of compliments. Very comfortable.

Lots of compliments. Runs large, especially around the waist and bust. Only drawback, the dress smelled of strong perfume, I'm assuming from the previous renter.

This was a "gold" event and I felt like a million bucks!

I am usually an 18-20 in "normal" (not designer) clothing. The 18WL was borderline too big and I wish my backup size had been the 16 instead of the 20. That said, the 18 fit and was comfortable, and at t 5'9", the tall was a good choice. The train dragged just a tiny bit, and the front wasn't too short. The ruching and sequins make this dress very flattering and forgiving. The top stays up effortlessly and I didn't have to worry at all about it gapping open.

Beautiful dress! Really comfy to wear.

I usually wear a 16, but I decided to wear the 18 so it wasn't as tight in the waist (if you have a mommy pooch this dress doesnt hide it well). The 18 was too big in the breast area. Overall though it still photographed well and I got lots of compliments.

Runs small, not as flattering as picture shows

This dress was my backup dress since the alternative size in the original dress wasn't available. This dress seems to run small and isn't flattering if you have a bigger middle section.

Perfect!

I wore this dress for my birthday. I orderd a 18r and 20r, but the 20 was damaged (missing sequence at the bottom). Luckily, the 18r was a perfect fit! It hugged my curves and was very flattering to my body. It was very comfortable. Everyone thought I looked stunning! I felt like a queen!

Beautiful Dress Overall

Beautiful dress, and if you don't want to show your arms this is a great alternative. A bit tight and the ruching acroos the waist is not the best for a tummy. Length was great though and the color is beautiful.

This dress fit beautifully. I am very busty but this dress fit like a dream. The longer length was great. I truly see no cons in this dress! I wore it for a comedy beauty pageant evening gown and received many compliments that night and into the next week. I highly recommend it to anyone who want to feel beautiful and elegant.

Beautiful dress.

This dress is stunning & received compliments all night. It was very comfortable! This dress is more of a brown/gold so I'm glad I waited until the dress arrived to buy shoes. Most "gold" shoes have a yellow gold tone. Cons: (1) If you have a stomach, avoid this dress at all cost. Even spanx can't help in this one. I hated every single picture of myself in this dress- despite people telling me all night long I looked fabulous (which is why I didn't post a pic). (2) Although I loved the mini train, I stepped on it all night and so did a lot of other people. (3) The zipper sticks.

I had a NYE wedding...I wanted sparkle and elegance, this dress had it all!

I was so nervous on sizes, I've lost weight over the past year and didn't know what I would fit it, so I opted for an 18R and 20L. I tried on the 18 and it fit perfectly and with the help of Spanx, it looked incredible!! I loved everything about this dress. I am 5'9, I wore 3" heels and I wore the regular length. I think if I wore the long, I might have tripped over the front at some point. This is a really fabulous and stunning dress for any formal affair!

This dress is absolutely stunning, but it just didn't work for me.

The length, and fit were good - just as the other reviews said, it ran relatively true to size, even a little big. But I have a true hourglass figure and should have taken that into account. The neckline did nothing to accentuate my top. The draping of the waistline and hips, which would be gorgeous on a thin person, were horrible for me. But the dress itself is gorgeous, well made, and definitely leaves an impression.
