STYLIST REVIEW
Absolutely love this stunning gown! The color is gorgeous and the dress is perfect for showing off your curves. It is very fitted throughout and runs small, so definitely size up for your backup size! There is enough support in the top that no bra is needed! This dress is perfect for your next black tie event!

looks great! how was the length? did you wear heels and did the skirt drag at all?
FayeFayeJune 22, 2015
seconded, how was the length? I'm just under 5'9 and don't plan on wearing heels, would you recommend R or L?

This dress was dramatic and exactly what I wanted for my recital!
Fit is snug, but beautifully to my body. The strapless dress stays up nicely and the bottom flares gradually. The color is rich and dramatic :)
FayeFayeJune 22, 2015
hi! How was the length and how high were your heels? I'm just under 5'9 so I imagine about as tall as you in your heels. Was the R long enough?

Wore a different dress.
This was a very small fit. Rented the 16 in this and another gown. The other gown fit perfectly (didn't even need shape wear). This one I couldn't even zip above my waist so it can't be blamed just on my busom. Beautiful fabric and color but order at least one size up.

Great dress!
The dress runs small. I usually wear a 10 and wore a 12. After an over the top wedding, it was a little tight after all the food! I wore this to a black tie wedding in Beverly Hills and fit right in. I received tons of compliments and the color went so great with my red hair. I dressed it up with some fancy jewelry (Victoria necklace by Slate and Willow on RtR!) and an updo to show off the neckline. Fits will even with curves with the ruched middle and was very forgiving!

Absolutely gorgeous color!
I wore this to a formal charity event. I received many compliments as the color is beautiful and nice to wear something other than black. The 4 fit a little better, but too big in the bust. The long was also too long so I wore the 2R. I am typically a 2L. By the bed of the night I was pretty uncomfortable which is why I am giving it a 4 star. I do think it is a lovely dress.

I LOVED this dress and had so many compliments. Wore this to a formal awards dinner in the Bahamas.
the zipper did stick but we were care and went slow zipping in up and it was fine. I was comfortable the entire night and had people asking me the next day if I was the girl in the blue dress. This was my first experience with Rent the Runway and they definitely have a new customer.

Very Glamorous
This dress is great for formal occasion. I loved the way I looked in it. I tent to flounder between sizes 2 and 4 depending on the designer and cut. The 2 fit like it was made for me... well if I owned it I would have hemmed an inch or so but I just wore my highest heels. However there was a tiny piece of plastic or wire that poked out just enough between the seam stitches that rubbed at my skin. I had to apply a small piece of medical tape to save my skin from being rubbed open. This dress wrinckles easy and my garment steaming game is strong but this took some effort! It arrived very wrinkled and I don't think tht could have been helped and I use an commercial grade garment steamer. This took 2 solid steam sessions. All in all it was a comfortable dress that holds itself up. No fussing or adjusting through the evening. Wear tall heels or you will fall and die.

Best dress at a military ball
I'm 5'4", so I ordered the regular, and it fit great but I couldn't wear heels with it. It was the perfect length for flats though. Also, it felt a little scrunched up in the body--I think if I'd gotten the Long it would have fit my proportions better....something I never, ever thought I'd be tall enough to say. Color is GREAT in person and in pictures. Top is s big smaller than the bottom, so if you're hourglass you may want to order a size up rather than down, so that there's enough room up top.

Photo doesn't do the color justice - it's a deep teal and just beautiful in person.
This gown definitely runs small. As you can see my 36DDs are a bit...confined! I rented the 14R because the long length wasn't available, and should have rented the 16L. I'm 5' 6" and could only wear kitten heels with this dress. Overall I really enjoyed this dress

The color of this gown is amazing! A huge standout in a sea of black!
The dress fits true to size, so size up if you are curvy. Shorter ladies be warned, this dress is long! 4 inch heels made the length manageable. The cut is super flattering and the train is gorgeous! Got tons of compliments on the gown !

great night with good friends!
this dress is beautiful; the color is much prettier and "deeper"/ jewel toned than what you can see on line. Fit was terrific and comfortable. I'm usually a 6 or 8 in a dress- the six was OK up to about my rib cage and then it was a no go- and I don't have a large bust- so just FYI.

Every one stopped at said they loved the dress
The dress was beautiful. The color was amazing. The zipper was hard to get up. It was a two person job getting this dress zippered up. But once it was it fit like a glove. It was perfect like the dress was made for me. I wore pretty high heels since I am am pretty petite. The dress just touched the ground. I loved this dress.

Beautiful color and fit
The color is beautiful, and I thought it created a really nice shape in the waist and hips. I could have worn the 4R, but my husband said the 2R was sexier. I didn't have to wear shapewear or other special garments. The 2R was damaged/torn on the side on the zipper, but I made it work. Beware if you have hips. This dress is not stretchy, so you might feel a little restricted (getting in and out of the car was interesting). Also, this dress gets very wrinkled on the bottom and will need a good steam. I wore the dress with Lulu Frost Nicandra Drop Earrings and it was lovely.

Simply stunning, wonderful fit and super flattering.
This dress simply blew me away. I rented a size bigger like many others suggested and it was a bit big in the chest area (I'm a B cup) but I just added a padded strapless bra and it fit perfectly. I've never received so many compliments in my life!! It was just spectacular. The color is like nothing I've ever seen before. Very beautiful! Super flattering cut and fabric was stunning. This was my first experience with RTR and I was so impressed. Can't wait to rent again and try something new.

This gown is stunning
The dress was nearly suffocating on my 32DD bust BUT it was so pretty! Busty girls should choose a different style or be prepared for some serious bust squishing. Also, the bodice isn't the most comfortable against the bust so be prepared for that. I used a strapless bra which alleviated that tho. If you have a full bust, be prepared to reach for your favorite strapless bra. I would've been rubbed raw without the bra. Having said that, This dress earned compliments from complete strangers!! I ordered the 2R and for my 5 foot 3 frame in 5 inch platform stilettos, the dress touched the floor but just barely.

Grandma boobs
It would've been perfect if it hadn't made my boobs look misshapened and pancake-like. I wore a pretty stiff strapless bra, but that didn't help. The dress arrived a day later than scheduled, so I didn't have time to get another dress before my event. That said, I received numerous compliments throughout the night. It was the perfect length with 3" heels. It runs ever-so-slightly small (I'm usually between 0 and 2, and this was a perfect fit.

Beautiful, Rich Color - Pure Sophistication!
SUCH a beautiful dress! I rented this dress for an anniversary photo shoot that my husband and I did on NYE this year. I reserved this dress in an 8L and 10R but ended up wearing the 10R. The dress fits VERY snug and is not so forgetting for ladies who have curves. It runs pretty snug in the hip/thigh area and was a bit too loose on the top, even though I am fairly busty. Still, if you size up, this dress is gorgeous and got so many compliments. The fabric is made out of really great quality and kept me pretty warm in the 30 degree weather!

In a sea of LBD's this was a stunner!
Pictures don't do this dress justice. Do yourself a favor a reserve this one now. Fabric is substantial and has a beautiful sheen. And the color...I kept getting compliments all evening! I felt like a million dollars. It runs a little big in the tummy area, so despite my slightly pear shape, I had to return my 2R for a 0R, which fit like a glove. That being said, I still had room to sit comfortably and eat all night. For reference, I'm 5'5", 117 lbs, and I wear a size 2/4 bottom and a 0/34B top. I wore 4" heels and the front came off the floor just enough to let my pretty shoes peep through. RTR now has an enthusiastic customer for life!

The dress was wonderful, a little snug on the ribcage, but looked stunning on!
The dress needed steaming before wearing so bear that in mind when planning the arrival date. This style was also a little snug on the ribs, but true to size else where. It was also a touch long for my little body but 4' heels helped with that! the dress is stunning on and i had many compliments.

Masquerade Ball Engagement Party on Halloween!!
I reserved a 6R and a 10R (all other sizes were taken.) The 6R fit everywhere but around the rib cage, so we went with the slightly too large 10R. I had to wear 3" heels to accommodate the dress' length, but being almost 5'3", that's to be expected. The dress was phenomenal, I felt like a princess!

The color is amazing!
Overall, I liked this dress. I received many compliments on the color. I suppose I will say it is true to size, but honestly...I put on the 6 and felt stuffed into it...so I put on the 8 and didn't feel like there was much difference in the places I wanted more space (the hips). There was more room in the bust- but I didn't really need that- so I went with the 6. Length was just right for me with my 2.5ish in heels.

Music, dancing, and dressing up in a beautiful dress!
I rented this in the 4R and 6P. I put the 4R on and knew it was the one for me. It fit like a glove and looked fabulous at my event. The color is perfect peacock turquoise. Received many compliments and actually considered purchasing! I will definitely consider renting this again for other formal events. Enjoy :)

Stunning color!! This dress photographs beautifully!
It was glamorous and worked perfectly for a black tie wedding in Miami. I am typically a size 6, but I opted for the 8 in this gown -- it had a little room to spare but was more comfortable. I am 5'5" and with heels it was the perfect length but when I changed to flats for dancing later in the evening I did have to hold up the train at times. The only negative I would give this dress is that due to the mermaid shape it is a little hard to move on the dance floor. All in all I would ABSOLUTELY recommend this dress!!

Made me feel like an red-carpet celebrity- LOVED THIS DRESS
I read the reviews and decided to order one size true to my usual fit (6P) and one size 8. The 6 petite fit LIKE A DREAM!!! As soon as I tried it on I knew it was perfect. It was tight enough to hug my curves (and keep my boobs in place) but not so tight that I couldn't dance or breath. The fabric across my tummy hid any trouble (hey, I've had two kids) and it wasn't too long. I was actually able to wear an extremely comfortable pair of heels, maybe four inches, and I happily danced the night away. I wore this to a black-tie FreeMasons Charity Ball and I received compliments all night from complete strangers. The aqua color was gorgeous- in some pictures the sheen of the dress and the lighting can look almost blue - but no one had an color dress even close to the same. This was my first time using RTR and I'm so happy, I can't wait to try them again!

Fit perfectly for a petite frame... A little long for someone that's just 5'-0", but not too bad. Color and fabric are so rich too, great construction and so flattering.

Stunning Dress, Excellent Customer Service + Overnight Shipping!
After renting two dresses for a black tie event hosted by my husband's company, sadly neither dress was working! I called RTR and the stylist helped me choose between a few dresses I had previously hearted. She had great input and placed the order for overnight shipping. The dress arrived the next morning and ended up being perfect for the event. The zipper was pretty tough to get up past a certain point, almost like it was stuck? But we made it work eventually. If this is your first pick, might try two sizes to see if that makes a difference. Overall lots of compliments and a blast to dance in! Thanks RTR :)

This is one of my favorite dresses I have ever worn. The color was stunning!
I usually wear a 4, but it was too tight so I had to wear the 6. Most of the reviews said it ran small, so I got the size up and I was so glad I did. It was very flattering and the color is so different from what anyone else was wearing. I loved it!

Gorgeous dress and perfect fit and length. Felt absolutely beautiful in it.
This dress is stunning. The color is AMAZING!! The dress itself was starting to show a little wear (boning poking up at the sides) and I couldn't get the creases to come out but overall, for a charity gala (which I chaired), it was stunning and looked amazing on the red carpet.

Beautiful blue gown.
This was my backup after my original dress was sent back damaged from another customer. They didn't have the long length in this gown and I'm glad they didn't. The regular length was perfect and I wore 4in heels. It seems all the long gowns I ordered as backups were way way to long even with heels on. Maybe I'm shrinking with age? This dress was a touch big in the bust for me. Other then that this dress was beautiful! It hugged all curves and I didn't want to send it back!!!

I wore this to a fundraising dinner for our children's school - it was perfect, even for dancing!
This is a very long dress. I'm 5'2 and wore heels and it was dragging a tad. However, due to the mermaid style, the look was fine! I got many compliments the entire night. I'm a "color" person, so I paired it with magenta Gucci Jolene shoes and matching clutch. Perfect. One downside was that I had to wear the larger/back-up size because the smaller/correct size they sent was too wrinkled, so I was pulling the dress up all night. It looked amazing though!

Beautiful color, hourglass fit, runs true to size.
I love how this deep turquoise dress is not your run-of-the-mill red or black color. The jewel tone will make you the belle of the ball, so to speak. The ruching at the waist will make you look thinner in the middle. I'm 5'6" and wore 4 inch heels with this dress and the length was perfect and beautifully skimmed the floor. I could have gone with a 3 inch heel, too, and it still would have been perfect. The only thing that was a bit of a nuisance was the zipper on this dress, at least for the size 6. I didn't try on the 8, but the size 6 zipper gets stuck about half way up. You'll definitely need zipper help and patience to get it to the top and then hook it.
