The Gala affair had a Japanese theme and so I matched the dress with a kimono that I wanted to wear and it worked perfectly. I had many complements on the dress. It was a tad long but I wore shoes with higher heels than usual.

Lots of Compliments

Overall fit: Large

I wore this dress for a 1920's Gala. It wasn't my 1st choice, it was actually sent to me overnight due to the fact that I didn't like the fit of my original dress. The RTR customer service is amazing! They are very helpful & accommodating. The dress fit perfectly,just a little loose in the top part, but nothing that was uncomfortable. I'm 5'7" & got a regular length, my heels were only 2 in high, and the dress was still touching the floor. Beautiful dress overall.

Boning was a little boxy since my bust didn't really fill it out. The dress was beautiful, I got plenty of compliments. The 0 fit like a glove, but I planned on eating a meal in it and still hoping to breath, so the 2 was a better choice for the whole evening. (TMI? Sorry.) The regular length was still long on me in my tallest shoes (5'1" +4.5" platform wedges) but the skirt was well inset with trumpet like panels, so deliberately kicking forward with each step made it fine to walk in without having the hold the skirt up. The waist had nice pleating of fabric to disguise that region, but it didn't slim too particularly well. I was very happy in the dress, it just wasn't the most flattering thing I've ever rented.

This wasn't my original dress but was overnighted to me when my first dress didn't work out. I picked it out the night before my senior prom and it came the morning of. It was a 4L and very flattering but a little loose, I think I could've worn a 2L. I got tons of compliments and it made my prom unforgettable!

Gorgeous and elegant!

Size worn: 0L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
LOVED this dress! I borrowed it for a military ball down in Texas; I had been attached to this unit overseas so I wanted to make sure I looked GOOD and not like the sweaty, dirty Soldier I had known them as. Mission accomplished and more. The dress is heaver than it looks like it would be. The over-layer is more like crochet rather than lace. My backup dress was the green sequent Badgley Mischka which people had review as heavy and this dress was about 1/3 lb heavier. Didn't have any issue with it though. It's incredibly comfortable and forgiving with the rouching, with my stick straight figure it added the illusion of curves I wish I had. I felt like for a zero the hips and waist were a little loose but I was comfortable all night. The length was definitely long but I think a regular would have been too short, I'm about 5'9 and wore 3" heels that night. Since the dress is eye catching in a subtle manner I complimented the ensemble with a single tear drop pearl necklace and earrings. In all, this dress is wonderfully flattering and charmingly feminine. I was sad when the night ended- highly recommend this dress!

I loved this dress! I bought this dress for my senior prom. I got it in the size 0R and it fit me perfectly! It was very long on me without heels but I wore about 5 inch heels and it was a great! Overall the dress was honestly stunning! I added a belt to add some glam to the dress to make it pop even more! This was my first rental and I am satisfied!! Can't wait to buy more dresses.

Thick Material

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size

This is a very pretty dress but kinda awkward. The fit and style is formal while the fabric is relaxed so I felt they didn't match. I didn't wear it because it was a back up and I wouldn't wear it because it would be a bit too casual for prom. The rouching in the middle was flattering and covered any imperfections. I would wear this for a formal day time event.

I never ended up actually wearing this dress. I rented a previous dress and it turned out to not fit me. The gracious people at rent the runway sent this to me as one of my back ups. The dress is nothing spectacular. It is a very flattering fit, however the fabric is pretty casual so I felt the two did not align. I am 5'1 and this was WAY too long for me.

I really loved the way that this dress looked. I think it is beautiful but unfortunately I did not end up wearing it. Yes it did look good on but I don't think it works we'll for women who have larger bust sizes like me. When I tried walking around I kept having to pull it up and I knew it I had worn it to my event I would be miserable all night and not comfortable. I wish this dress would have worked out though since it is flattering and pretty.

A dress I had originally ordered was "damaged beyond repair," so I had to scramble on the website to find a new dress two days before my event date, and I'm lucky it was this one! My favorite part about this dress was the gorgeous train and the intricate lace pattern. The bust was a bit big, but the rest of the dress hugs the body at just the right places. I am 5'8" and wore 3.5 inch heels, and the dress just touched the floor.

Gorgeous heavy fabric - quality gown. Runs very long (my daughter is 5'4" - 105lbs), so high heels are a must, and we still had to put a 2" false hem in the front which created a "train". Also a little loose at the top even in a size 0, so I had to pin it to her strapless bra which worked out fine.

The many compliments I received on this dress made me feel as gorgeous as the bride herself!

Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: Large

I have worn a 6 in the past but have recently slimmed down and rented both the 6L and 4L knowing that one of them would work. I tried on the 4L and it fit so well I never even opened up the 6L.. Of course, it was a little bit long but with my heels it was truly manageable. I felt like a princess. Lots of compliments - "dazzling, dynamic" dress - from women I'd never even met. This dress is gorgeous! This was my first rental with RTR and I was nervous about renting for only 4 days - the product arriving only 24 hrs before the wedding. Luckily everything went off without a hitch. Thank you RTR!

Didn't wear this one, but wanted to share for ladies of similar size.

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I am 5'2" and dresses typically run a bit long, but this one was crazy long. I'm glad it was the backup! In the picture I have on 3.5" heels and there's still 3-6" of dress on the floor (it was even longer in the back than what you see in the photo). I had bought some fashion tape for hemming, since it's a typical must, but this dress was way too thick and heavy to make that option work. As everyone seems to mention, it was a really heavy dress, like heavy enough to make me glad I had something lighter on for dancing. It would have been torturous to wear in high heat, so save this choice for an air conditioned venue. The plus was, though, that it was made very well, and even with the lace I didn't worry about it getting damaged had I worn it (the lace was thick and heavy too). The size 4 was too big (and I had just finished dinner before trying on so I'd know if it would be comfortable after a meal), the size 2 was still a better fit, though it was a tad snug. I'll be honest, this dress was stunning, but for my frame I couldn't have made it work without having it hemmed (which I think RTR offers in some areas, but it never would have worked with my rental schedule). Too bad, it had the potential to be a show stopper.

Classy dress

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
The dress is stunning and runs a size smaller. I got the regular length instead of long and the tail was still dragging with high heels on (which I was happy about). It was a perfect dress except for the fact that the inner skirt kept running up and I found myself having to do a few bathroom runs to adjust it.

I was absolutely in love with this dress, fit like a glove! It was a little too form fitting for my being out of shape this season, but otherwise it was just absolutely beautiful. I received this as a backup since the dress I wanted was damaged, but since it was a family friend's wedding I was renting for, felt like it was also a little too similar looking to a wedding gown, so not totally appropriate to wear. The little train in the back was such a nice touch. Definitely recommend this one as a showstopper!

I'm normally a 6 Tall but wore 4 Tall & it was still too big in the chest to stay up without constantly pulling my top up. The dress is beautiful, but definitely not good for hot weather. I'm 5'9" & with 4-5 inch heels the length was perfect. All the other choices I picked as an alternate for this dress were not available so I had to buy a new dress last minute. RTR was very helpful & refunded my money. This was my first rental & next time I know to order 1-2 months in advance. They have great customer service. Thanks Jeremy! Sent from my iPhone

gorgeous bridesmaid dress

Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was beautiful. I rented this for a formal bridesmaid dress for a wedding of a great friend of mine. The theme was neutral dresses and this dress blended beautifully with the other bridesmaids. Pros: The dress is very classic looking Has a great silhouette - very flattering The rouching hid any problem spots I was worried about I ended up wearing heels, and the long was a perfect fit No real cons but things to note: The dress is more blush colored than it appears on the model The detailing (as others have mentioned) is more of a crochet appearance than lace The model image looks like the dress is a more traditional strapless dress, but it does have some mermaid elements at the bottom so there was some extra fabric I was dragging a little with the long Overall great dress for a formal event!

This was actually my backup dress, the first one I ordered didn't fit right. This dress is comfortable, flattering, and the fabric is much more beautiful in person. I wore this dress to a marine ball and it was definitely perfect for the occasion. The 0 fit but was a little snug so I decided to go with the 2. My only complaint was that even with 4 inch heels the dress was very long and dragged on the floor. It was a great rental and I'd recommend it.

I rented this dress for my engagement party...Our guests jaws were literally on the floor when they saw this dress! My fiancé loved it so much that he wanted to buy it for me! I wish I could have wrote down the compliments I received because it was just "you look beautiful" the adjectives used were "stunning, drop dead gorgeous, perfect combo of class and beauty, elegantly sexy" I couldn't have asked for more. I am normally a 10 in jeans but the side zipper would zip the last few inches around my chest! So I went with the 12 and it fit much better! I am 5 foot 4 inches and weigh 160. I couldn't be more happy with this amazing gown.

curve hugging and extraordinary! Bridesmaid Dress for fall wedding.

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was more than anything I could have ever imagined. It fit perfect in all the right places! I am 5'4", with a skinny waist and a bubble butt. The compliments did NOT stop all night. I had to wear (very high heels) to walk comfortable in the long elegant dress. I would recommend silk, or some other smooth fabric shoe, b/c my sequence shoes and heel kept catching on the lace of this dress. Ever detail about this dress is timeless and beautiful. I wore a faux bob, which seemed to suit the style of the dress perfectly. I usually wear a sz. 2 in dresses, so I was nervous about ordering a sz 0. But, it hugged my body perfectly. Had I been any bigger in the waist, though it may not have fit. The dress slip did keep riding up around my hips every now and again, but I wouldn't have done anything different, if I had to do it again.

This was a backup dress after my first dress didn't fit well enough. I'd never worn a strapless dress or a dress so light in color, but the stylist I spoke with felt that I would be happiest with this replacement. I wore 2 1/2" heels and this dress hit the floor (LOVE IT). It was a little big in the bust, so I ended up using duct tape for extra breast support. The dress stayed up for 10 hours straight and the only time I had to make adjustments was after some very, very active dancing. Very comfortable and I received many compliments. Would rent again!

I'm usually between a 6 and 8. I'm 6,2 and weigh about 155lbs. This dress fit very well and showed my curves in a really nice light. It was my second marriage and I wanted something less traditional yet still formal. This dress is quite heavy which was good because it's been rather cold here. In summer it wouldn't have been ok. The lace is hearty and no likely to snag. The zipper is a bit tricky at the waist. Overall very happy and get pretty!

The body of the dress fit well everywhere but the top was a little snug. I am 5'5'', 122 lbs., 32-34 DDD. This dress has enough support that I don't have to wear a bra. In fact, if I did have to wear a bra, I probably would not have been able to zip the dress up top. There were two major issues with the dress: 1 - it smelled like bar and greasy food. 2 - it's a longer dress and the bottom was completely black and in terrible shape.
