Perfect!

This dress was perfect for the formal charity gala that I attended. It was very comfortable as gowns go. I typically wear a size 6 in tops and a size 8 in pants/ skirts and am a "pear" shape. The six fit well in the top but just barely too small on the bottom and the 8 fit perfectly. I got loads of compliments on the dress and would definitely wear it again or recommend it to a friend.

Fits true to size. I probably should have rented the long, it was a little short. I wore this to prom.

Showstopper

First time using rent the runway, so glad I finally tried it out!! Worn to a black tie work event- Such a stunning and unique dress.. I received so many compliments! Comfortable and non restricting. The sequins were not scratchy at all. This dress made me feel like a princess!

Dress was great; lots of compliments

Loved wearing this dress! Felt very regal in it. Other reviewers have commented on scratchy sequins at armholes and it's true, but not intolerable. One note is that I found the regular to be quite long...I'm 5'4" and had to wear 4" heels to even be close to tall enough not to trip on the 6R.

Gorgeous dress, beautiful material. Stunning, classy!

Pros - I didn't need to wear a bra, it was fitted enough to go without. Cons - super tight around the hip area. I had a hard time sitting down. Too long, even with 5" heels...

Beautiful dress, runs small!

I rented this dress for my mom (52) to wear to a formal gala. She always wears either a 10 or 12 in contemporary evening (including all Badgley Mischka she's ever tried on), but neither size fit her in this dress. The 12L was uncomfortably tight in the bust and upper chest area (38C). Also, we noticed that the front of the 12L had a big patch (3" x 3") of sequins missing! It was very noticeable, and I assume it would be that way in photographs as well. Ultimately, both of these issues caused her to decide not to wear the dress. We had to go find another last-minute option. That being said, this is a BEAUTIFUL DRESS!! The sequins are matte, not too shiny, which makes this dress formal and elegant, not Vegas-y. I would certainly recommend this for a mature customer (50+). The color is amazing (a dark forest green with a little blue in it), and the quality of the construction and materials is very high. I wish she could have worn it!

This is a stunning dress--perfect for a formal affair

The fit was perfect. The dress hugs your shape, but doesn't feel constricting. I had no problem walking or dancing in it. The drape moves beautifully, and was a lot of fun when dancing. Several people went out of their way to compliment me on the dress.

LOVED IT!

This is a great fitting dress, that will standout a little more that other dresses at a formal affair. The 4L fit really well and the length was perfect with average size heels (I'm 5'9). I was very happy with this rental :) and even received a comment stating I looked like I was on the red carpet! HA!

beautiful, unique dress!

This dress is so gorgeous and I felt like a million bucks. Fit was perfect in my waist and hips, and the length was great. Only complaint is that it was a bit too low-cut in the chest - because of my short height and large bust I spent most of the night pulling up the top so my bra didn't show and I didn't show too much cleavage. Otherwise, I loved it!

The dress was amazing!

I originally ordered the 2R but it was really tight! I have a small pregnancy pooch so that might have contributed to the 2 not fitting. I ended up wearing the 4R and the length was just long enough. If I had it to do over again, I probably would have ordered the LONG. I am 5'8. Lots of compliments on the dress and it was comfortable despite the fact that it had sequins galore and was very fitted.

Beautiful!

Definitely true to size, however after reading the previous reviews I was concerned it would be too long. After receiving the dress I actually thought it might have been a little short. I ended up changing my heels for something shorter so the dress would feel a bit longer. I was able to wear this dress without a bra and didn't have any issues there. At the waist (going up towards the lower part of the bust), the material of the dress isn't sleek against the skin... The dress really hugged me and does not stretch to fit. I did not have any problems with it being itchy under the arms as I've read other reviewers had that problem. Overall, great dress and was very pleased with the look!

In-home try on

I received this dress along with three others to try on at home after the Flatiron location made a mistake and didn't have the dresses I requested to try on in stock. This dress fit well, but even though I expected the matte texture of the sequins, I was underwhelmed by the appearance of the dress.

Spectacular dress with a perfect fit!

I wore this dress to the premier charity ball in my town and stood out in a sea of black. This dress is simply gorgeous and I received compliments all night. I usually take a 4 in an evening gown. I'm 5'5 and ordered a 4R. It was the perfect fit and length - just the least bit snug across the front but I'm a 34C so this happens to me with form fitting tops. The length was perfect with 3 inch heels since the dress didn't drag and my shoes just peeked out from under the hem which I really liked. The train is beautiful and the silhouette of the dress is stunning. I want to keep it!

The dress was gorgeous. Everyone kept stopping me and told me I looked beautiful.

Fit true to size. I'm typically a size 8 but in dress gown I usually go a size up for comfort. The dress is very elegant. Wore it to a black tie wedding. The only con about this dress is that it's a little itchy in the armpit area. Other than that, this dress is a knock out.

I wore this dress to our annual formal holiday gala and the it was perfect for the evening.

The fit of the dress was perfect. It was tight fitting at the waist and flowed nicely to the floor. Very elegant and comfortable. There was good support in the bust so I did not have to wear a bra, which was a definite plus. The color was beautiful and I received so many compliments that I felt like Cinderella. I will most definitely "Rent the Runway" in the future. What a great service!!!!!

Beautifully made

I did not end up wearing this dress, but I tried it on and wanted to share my input. The sequins were securely and beautifully sewn on. It is true that the sequins will rub your arms, but it is nothing unbearable. The arm holes are a little small, so the fabric rubs the armpit area. The top portion was loose on me because I am very small chested, but the top seems to have good construction and boning to accommodate ladies with a larger chest. Overall a very pretty dress and lovely green color. I recommend renting the Emerald Nouveau Drop earrings if you like to match.

Beautiful dress for a winter formal

This dress fits true to size but with no stretch. I ordered the 0 and 0L and ended up wearing the longer size with 4" heels and the length was perfect. As other reviewers have indicated, the sequins are a little itchy at first but I didn't notice it after the first 5 minutes. It was comfortable to wear and conservative enough for a work function without being boring. I would definitely recommend.

Mermaid dress!

Definitely crazy tight. Fabric does not have any stretch and my large hips were squeezed into the size 10. Using the restroom was pretty hilarious and time consuming. BUT I LOOKED LIKE A MERMAID. And everyone loved it. And I loved it!

Stunning!

I received compliments all night long. The dress is incredibly flattering and fit like a glove. It is beautifully tailored and the materials are high quality. I was worried the sequins would end up looking tacky, but my worries were completely misplaced. The dress is form fitting; however, the fabric and structure does a good job of hiding small imperfections (e.g., a little jiggle here or there and cellulite). I did not end up wearing anything under the dress for extra support. There is actually boning in the bodice so I did not end up needing a bra with the dress.

Curvessss

This was an add-on dress I ordered as a back up in case I didn't like the other. Although I ended up wearing the other, it was a tough decision!! This one gave me sexy curves (which I'm lacking) and the pattern/color was eye catching. I wish I had another event to wear this one too! Fits very true to size! I'm 130 lbs 5'9 and ordered a 2L. Fit was perfect and length worked with 3.5 inch heels!

Elegant and unique!

I loved wearing this dress. It felt classy and not too wild or sexy, while still being flattering and unique, which was perfect for my event (a formal awards gala). My only small complaints: because I'm quite short-waisted, there was too much length at the top of the dress, making it sag in the back. If I had bought it, I would have altered it by taking up an inch or two from the shoulders. As others have mentioned, the sequins are a bit scratchy, though nothing extreme. Otherwise, the fit was perfect -- flattered my naturally small waist (26) while allowing perfect room for my larger hips (38). The length was a tiny bit long for the 1.5 inch heels I wore for comfort but would have been perfect with 3 or 4 inch heels. If you're tall, definitely order the long length. The dress stayed in place, swished beautifully when I walked, and was structured but not too constricting. The matte sequins photographed well and were very festive without seeming too flashy or tacky. I wore it with a regular strapless bra, though I probably could have gone without. Unlike another reviewer, I never had to pull the dress up and my bra never showed. Though I'm fairly busty (32DD / 34D), this dress didn't show any inappropriate cleavage on me. It seems like there's some variation among the dresses in where the flowers are placed, so if I'd happened to have a sheer panel instead of sequins at the depth of the plunging neckline I would have felt a bit less comfortable. I got both the 4 and the 6. The 6 fit ok, but was too loose and not as flattering.

Glamorous- everything I hoped it would be!

As a jeans and a sweater kind of gal, I found myself needing something special for our best friend's wedding. After working with a RTR stylist and crowdsourcing my friends opinions on Facebook, I chose this dress. This dress fit beautifully, took the emphasis off of my chest, and highlighted my waist. I am 5' 6" and the long length was perfect. The back trailed ever so slightly as I walked (I wore 2 1/2 inch heels) and it swished beautifully as we learned traditional Greek dances at the reception. There were two issues preventing me from giving this five stars. I had trouble maneuvering staircases- the dress is fitted through the thigh which made it difficult to lift my leg high enough to climb a normal staircase. Breaking it down on the dance floor was out of the question. Secondly... I am a busty girl. The chest area was so tight that I almost had quadra-boob/spillage/boiled over. Fortunately, the sequins were in the right place to hide the abundance of cleavage without making me feel like a school marm. Also, you may need a buddy to help zip you up (unless you're Gumby). It was difficult to get the zipper over the waistband. Also, I'm a 36DD but it didn't give me the option to select that from the drop down. Despite those two things, I felt glamorous, elegant and confident in this dress and would definitely recommend it.

Felt like a superstar on the red carpet!

Pros: tons of compliments, dress is figure fitting Cons: the sequins under the arm are a little itchy at first but I forgot all about them during the party I rented this for a formal banquet/ball and received tons of compliments! This dress is truly amazing! It's form fitting, the sequins aren't too shiny, and gives you the perfect amount of glam! I'm 5'6" (really close to 5'7") and wore the 6L with 3.5 inch heels = perfect! My accessories were gold chandelier earrings/bracelet. Silver accessories don't seem to go too well with the dress.

This was my backup dress. I did not end up wearing this dress.

This was my backup dress and thank goodness my first dress option worked out. The sequins on this dress were rather scratchy and the lining of the dress kept peaking out. The lining was tattered and if I would have tried to hem the lining the dress would have been to short. It wasn't nearly as flattering on me as it was on others in pictures.

I liked it, but it wasn't my all time favorite dress I've ever worn.

I got an 8R and 6R. They seem to both fit the same with the exception of the top lacy part was big/baggy when I had the 8 on. I maybe should have gotten the long because I thought it was almost too short. The sequins do irritate your skin but not unbearable.

Wonderful dress for a black tie event

I had a holiday black tie party to attend and chose this dress. The 4L fit perfectly and I wore a 3in heel and that was a great height for the dress. I gave it 4 stars because it wasn't the easiest to move around in and the sequins were a little scratchy but otherwise I really enjoyed wearing this dress. It got tons of compliments and truly felt beautiful!

Beautiful material, but NOT for tall girls

I pulled this beautiful dress out of the box and was so excited to put it on. Got it zipped up only to find out it was WAY too short. I even tried to put on flats to wear it because I loved it so much. Even with flats the dress didn't get close to touching the ground and looked hilarious. The long just wasn't quite long enough. Other than that the dress is absolutely stunning and looked great on me.

The dress rendered me unrecognizable...in the best way!

When my friends dad who I had seen hours before didn't even recognize me in the dress I knew I had gotten my money's worth. The shoulders fit a little weird, in the back the top didn't sit flat against my back it poofed out. But the rest fit so well I wasn't complaining. I was nervous about the length but with 2/3 inch heels I was fine. I'm 5'5". I'd definitely rent again. It was so easy. After the event I was even able to have the hotel I was staying in take the ups package

This dress was gorgeous!

This dress fit well but was tight... There were sequins on it which I didn't realize which were a little scratchy but ok to wear for a few hours. I wish I got this dress in a long though... I'm 5 '7" and it didn't cover my feet with short heels on. I also had to wear a magic suit under this to flatten my tummy a little to make it look better. I loved this dress but next time I'll go with something more comfortable. It wasn't easy to dance in at the NYE ball I was at. Still beautiful though!
