Felt like a Princess in this dress and got compliments all night!
True to size, form fitting in the hip area, so if you are on the hippy side it may not look as sleek as you would like. Beautiful, vibrant color.

I felt like a grecian goddess!
I had a 'black tie optional' wedding to go to. My SO was in the wedding, so I wanted a longer dress to go with him being in a tux. Fit was wonderful. Hugged my curves in all the right places. I got compliments all night for it. I'm petite and wore not very high heels with it, and it skimmed the floor, but as the night went on (with dancing), I felt like I had to pick up the dress more.

Some of the paint from the beadint was scratched off, but it was barely noticeable. I received so many compliments on my dress.

Ordered a 2R and 4R based on the reviews. Discovered I was a 0L. Beautiful dress but was huge on me. I ended up wearing the black version in a 0L and it was awesome!

I wore this dress to the 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner where I met the Obamas!
The dress was great, wonderful teal color. I loved the detail on the one shoulder. The only negative was that the dress was hemmed a bit shorter than I would have liked. But, on the positive, that meant no risk of tripping!

Gorgeous and comfortable!
I wore this for a black tie wedding and it was great. This dress was my first time renting with RTR and I had a fantastic experience. The dress is quite heavy, though, so be aware if you are toting the bag to the airport, etc. A beautiful and comfortable dress, though.

Gorgeous dress!!!! Felt like a princess
I ordered both, the 10L and 8L and I ended up wearing the 8L. I did wear spanx under the dress along with your basic strapless bra. When in shape, I have more of an athletic build, but this dress and spanx definitely flattered my figure. If you have a belly, highly recommend he spanx!

Glamorous gown for a black tie wedding
Beautiful dress in a gorgeous color. Really enjoyed wearing it and it fit well. The regular was a little on the short side so I had to wear low heels. Looked fine as well with a strapless bra.

It was so flattering. I received tons of compliments.
I usually wear a 6, but at the time I rented it there were no 6's available. So I ordered the 4 and the 8. The 4 fit great.

It was a really pretty color and was perfect for a garden themed, black tie summer wedding!
The dress fit like a glove. The back of the dress was a little bit long, but other than that it was great!

Last minute rental for black tie event
I found out that I was to attend a black tie event 4 days before the actual event, so naturally I turned to RTR. This dress was affordable to rent but looked very high end. I ordered the 2 regular and the 4 long (the only sizes close to mine available) and after reading the reviews, I'm glad I ordered the long, even though it was a size larger than I normally wear. The 2 regular was way too short, even in 1 1/2 in. heels and I'm not even tall! My only complaint about the dress is that it was a little hard to walk in because the fabric didn't give much, but I got by. I got a ton of compliments on the dress. Love RTR!

A dress that makes you feel regal.
The dress fit true to size and the color is so beautiful! It is a mermaid fit, so you move slow in the dress, but it gives people more time to notice it!

Very "va va va voom"! It hugs every curve and can really show off your assets!
I didn't wear this dress, it was my backup. The color is a little more green than blue, which is still lovely. It's very comfortable. Even though its super snug, you can move freely - the fabric is very "luxe". The dress is going to be unforgiving, even with spanx. You can smooth out the rolls/kinks, but you can't hide them in this dress. It's very chic and lovey.

This dress is so spectacular and I was the only one at the prom that was wearing it.
The fit was perfect and I got the long. It is snug and body fitting so I bought a Spanx tummy control just for extra support.

Beautiful dress!
I was glad I got the 10L. I am 5'8" it was just barely long enough with 2" heels. I usually wear 3-4" heels so I was surprised when most of the comments said it ran long. The top was a little too big and I am a C cup. The tape they provided was very helpful along with a strapless bra and spanx for the under garments. Excellent dress for the hourglass figure! Highly recommend it!

This was a great dress for a wedding!
The best part about this dress was that it came in a long size. It's so hard to find long floor length dresses when you're tall so I was really happy with this one. The color was beautiful and it was long enough for me to wear heels. I loved it!

Great color and fit, very comfortable!
I rented this dress for my prom and loved it! The rent the runway process couldn't have been easier and this dress was gorgeous. It's very tight fitting so spanx are a must, and i would recommend getting the long if your'e over 5'3". The fabric was thick and stretchy and the color was beautiful. I was comfortable the whole night. I definitely recommend!

This dress was pretty, the color was great, and the fabric made it comfortable.
The description says that the dress runs a bit short but I still found the dress to be quite long so I had to temporarily take in the hem (thanks mom!). The bust was a bit loose but this will not be a problem if you are not an A cup. Otherwise, the dress was lovely and great for the occasion! The fabric has a bit of stretch to it, and I strongly recommend Spanx or any other sort of no-visible-panty-line underwear.

Great dress! Beautiful, rich color
The fit of the dress is snug. It hugs in all the right places, but you might want to go a size up if you don't want it to fit too tight. I ordered the 0 and 2, and ended up wearing the 2. I wished I had the 4 to see what it had fit like. I thought the color was prettier in person than on the website. It is a rich aqua, that is a beautiful. The length was perfect with heels, and had a short train that was gorgeous.

This is a gorgeous dress but very snug. I wish I would have had the size 4. I am normally a 0-2 in dresses but this one ran pretty tight. I could have worn the size 2 but would have been a bit self conscience!

I got so many compliments on this STUNNING dress!
I am on the shorter size (5'3") and the 0R was a bit too short for me to wear with any of the heels I had. I would have gotten the OL, but it was not available. Because it was just a tad too short, I found myself tugging on it to make it longer. The rest of the dress was perfect though! I loved it and so did my boyfriend!

Loved the color and style!
This dress was beautiful for my sorority formal! I got lots of compliments throughout the night. I was worried about the bust and length of the dress. It was a little snug in the waist area and I ended up wearing spanx. The length was also a little short when I was wearing 2" heels. I was in between the regular and long styles though, so it was probably better that it was a little short rather than too long. The experience with RTR was great and I will be renting again!

Beautiful shape / bead work, very fitted, but the regular length was too short.
I rented 6 dresses total to choose from for a big formal event. This would have been my top pick had it not been for the regular size running too short. I am 5'1'', but this was too short with 3 inch heels, plus it was on the tight side (all other size 0 normally fit perfectly on me). If it was longer, I would have chosen this. Having said that, the shape, bead work was beautiful.

This was my first rent the runway experience and it was great
I was very nervous about the length because I'm very short and petite, but it was a great fit! It hugged every curve perfectly, yet I could still move around. With about a 3" heel, the length of the 2S was great, with just a little puddle as seen in the picture. Not a fabric expert, but the fabric was surprisingly more like a mesh/jersey material than I was expecting, but it ended up being great as it definitely allowed for some flexibility

It was a beautiful color!
This dress had an amazing fit on me! It had stretch material so it clung onto the curves the right way. I wore the kind of Spanx underneath that cinched the belly down to the thighs and I had no visible lines. The beading was firmly attached to the dress so there were no issues there. The spare size that I ordered had an inner lining that was longer than the dress. Luckily, it was not the size that fit. I emailed RTR and they promptly addressed my concerns and gave me a partial refund even though I made it to the event in one of their gowns. I had a very positive first experience with RTR.

I got so many compliments! Everyone loved the unique color, I definitely stood out!
Fits true to size, not recommended for bigger busted girls, even the Regular can run a little long for us shorter girls (im 5'2") so def wear 4 in heels or higher, I wore 3 in ones and I had to lift the dress at times. Very flattering, smoothing effect!

Beautiful dress with beading detail. Very romantic.
The dress was quite fitted which made it difficult to wear any sort of shapewear underneath because all the seams would show through. It was a cold, windy evening , so I wanted to have an extra layer for warmth. I ended up wearing professional-grade footless dance tights underneath. The waistband of which could be slightly seen under my bust but not enough for anyone to notice (I hope). I am 5'4" and I wore 5" heels (including platform) and it was just enough to not let the dress drag on the floor. Still I had to be careful when walking and dancing because the dress would sometimes get caught in the heel and trip me up.

classy and comfortable
the dress was a bit stretchy, so it was pretty comfortable to wear. for my height and with 3 inch heels, it was perfect length. It would be too long otherwise.

This dress is absolutely stunning. People are still talking about it months later!
This dress is comfortable and flattering. It does run a bit long, but that's nothing some high heels can't fix!
