Flattering fit, good for a formal event. Runs short for tall women.
Fit well, was comfortable and I was able to wear a strapless bra underneath for more support. However, even the long sizes do run a bit short on taller women wearing heels. Would have been perfect if it was just a little longer!

Beautiful dress at last-minute!
I needed a dress at the last-minute to attend my fiance's military brigade ball, and rent the runway saved the day!This was my first time renting, and I can't wait to use this site again. I felt great in the dress and got lots of compliments. The dress does run short so I had to wear shorter heels to accommodate, would have preferred to order the long version. But overall, worked great.

beautiful dress, looked excellent.
this dress is beautiful, the bead work is really pretty. and the dress looked awesome. the one thing I would say is that it runs short- the long was not even long enough for me to wear anything higher than a 3 inch heel. I am only 5'6 so normally a long would give me plenty of room to wear a very high shoe, but this one did not at all. not a big loss, as it got me to wear pretty confortable shoes :) also I would say the dress runs slightly small.

Beautiful gown! Runs true to size. I'm 5'5' and 120 lbs and I ordered the 6L, with 5" heels perfect!
I wore this gown to a New Year's Eve formal and it felt and looked beautiful. I'm 5'5' and usually wear a size 6. I ordered a 6L and wore 5" heels and it was perfect. I've never ordered a dress before like this but I would definately do it again. It was easy, reliable and fun to just be able to pull out the gown and put it on.

Hugs the body, runs a little short, but the lines are gorgeous!
I ordered this dress in a long, but it was still too short so my advice to you tall ladies is to rent a second dress (only $25 more...awesome) just to have a back up. I say that because I did not order a back up so when I tried it on, although the top was gorgeous and the fit was great, I could not wear it. I called RTR and spoke to Whitney, who immediately began looking up available dresses, giving me suggestions and helped me choose a new dress, which she had to me by the next day. The customer service is above and beyond, something that is hard to come by now days. I would rent again and again just based on that, but their dresses are amazing so that helps:) This was my first RTR experience and it turned me into a devoted client. Well done, RTR!

Sophisticated dress
This was my one of my 2 choices for NYE. I went with the other dress I rented. This dress definitely runs SMALL! I am 5'6" and ordered the Long length, While the dress did fit (6L) it was way too short even barefoot! I tried on the 8L and it was ok but still too short to wear any type of heel with it. This dress does show off the curves, if you are at all self-conscious, spanks will come in handy for any amount of pooch. I received 2 sizes of this dress and was very disappointed in the differences between the two. The beadwork on the shoulder was missing all of the large rose colored pearls on one dress and had loose threads where they should have been. It made for a less than pretty accent to the dress. I was very glad I had my other choice to wear or I would have been very disappointed with my selection.

The consultants online were easy to work with and so nice!
I rented two dresses for a black tie event, this was my first choice but unfortunately it was way too short. I am 5'3, 105 lbs and got a 0R. I am petite, so a long never crossed my mind. I was disappointed that it was too short, but without shoes, the hem of the dress was at my ankles. The quality of the dress was nice and it had beautiful bead work.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this dress! I may even have to rent it again for the next Military Ball!
This dress was fabulous. It was snug but not tight. I just had a baby 9 months ago, so I was worried might be too tight but it was perfect. I definitely suggest getting some spanx because this dress emphasizes your lower abdomen. Also, if you're around 5'3 or 5'4 and going to wear 3 inch heels, I'd suggest getting the long. The dress was just slightly short but I just like dresses that cover my feet and touch the floor. This did not but I still loved it and it didn't make that big of a difference. I highly recommend this dress! You will not be disappointed!!!!

GREAT DRESS!
I wore this dress to a Mardi Gras ball and it was perfect! The only issue was that the bust area kept falling down for some reason and the zipper was broken. Other than that, it was comfortable and flattering. The 12L was a little too long and I'm pretty tall, so I stuck with the 12R. I wore it at a ball last year and would love to wear it to a different ball this year, but it would be remembered! That's how great of a dress it is!

Sophisticated & sexy, comfortable, runs short.
This dress worked very well for a black tie opera event. It was elegant but sexy and timeless. The wing detail on the back makes the dress unique. Extremely comfortable. My only issue was it runs short - I am 5'9" and ordered the 8L with 3 inch heels the dress was too short.

Very nice, comfortable fit. Could be an inch or so longer.
This dress was nice, but was my 7th choice. I ordered last minute. It didnt' have the "wow" factor that I was looking for, but I still received many compliments and it would be great for a formal black tie but not necessarily red carpet. It was great for dancing and breathed well. What truly made me feel like a superstar was RTR's comprehensive and fabulous service. From the 1st timer discount to the inexpensive backup dress. And then all of the goodies in the box with the dress - the great garment bag, amazing care kit w/tape and other items the pros probably use on their glam clients, AND a cute tote bag. INCREDIBLE! I am searching for reasons to rent again from RTR. I CANNOT WAIT!

Nice feel but short in length
I rented this dress for a formal affair in 0R and also received the 2R. The 0R was the better fit for me and the dress felt really good. The quality was very nice and the dress in good condition. The downside for me was that being 5'4" the dress hit at my ankles and was too short. Also, since I literally have no hips there was a little bit of excess fabric in the hip area. My hips are about a size 34 and didnt quite fill it out. I would recommend wearing a Long in this size if you are a 0 and over 5 feet. Also, I tried on the size 2 and though it was bigger in the body the length was the same so I did not wear either dress. I wore my backup gown that worked out better. This is a nice weight dress and feels flowy at the same time.

This dress was very flattering and comfortable. I found it very easy to walk and dance the night away in. I wore the 0L and found that the length for me (@ 5'6") was okay for a black tie affair with 3" heels.

Beautiful dress that fit like a glove!
This was my first RTR rental & I was very pleased! The dress was beautiful but I was a little surprised by how form fitting it was. I ordered a 6R & 8R. I ended up wearing the 8R but it did have some stretch so that helped. I got lots of compliments & my favorite part was the sequined shoulder!

This dress was my "plan A" but didn't end up working out.
Even though I ordered a long, this dress was too short for me - and I'm only 5'9". I also felt like the decorative shoulder part looked tarnished. I still had a great RTR experience though, my plan B dress was fabulous!

Beautiful dress, wrong length sent
I was so excited about this dress. Unfortunately, it arrived in a 10R rather than the 10L I ordered, and so it barely touched the floor when I wore flats. Not a good look. Otherwise, it is a beautiful, classic silhouette, and the beadwork on the shoulder is stunning.

Great dress!!
This is a great dress. I wore it for a local formal fundraising event. It is a quality dress made with a heavier fabric, therefore it flows well over any bodily imperfections. The back features an elegant swag that is lovely. I am 5'5" and wore 2.5" heels. The 6L hit right above my toes and was perfect for dancing and walking.

Fantabulous!
This was my first rental with RTR. I was nervous that The gown I choose would not be available until the day before the event, but it early when RTR said it would. I immediately tried on my gown to make sure it would fit. Since I have an hour-glass figure I choose to wear Spanx because this dress will cling to any curve you may have. I'm happy to have the two dress option because it give you an option if you are not comfortable with a clingy dress. The larger size was to large in the bra area so I had to et the Spanx for a smoother look. I plan on using RTR in my future events because I have so many formal dresses that are only worn once & this company can provide a wide variety at a cheaper cost than buying a fabulous dress that will sit in your closest after one wear. I was so excited thar I couldn't hold my containment and let my date in on the secret because he kept complimenting how beautiful the dress was. If you are trying to decide whether or not to use RTR then I would advise you to just do it like I did and you will not regret it. They take care of everything including the return envelopes that only require to drive to the post office to drop it off. How easy is that? I hope this helps with your decision to rent & use RTR.

many many people came up to me that night with compliments about the dress!
dress is true to size, except length! it runs very short. the size 0 fit me perfectly, but was no where near long enough (and I am 5' 2''). the 2 fit fine (but not as well as the 0), but was a little longer. i still thought it was a little short for my liking though.

GREAT FIT! TOO SHORT!
I had two formal functions to attend so I ordered two different dresses. This was my first time ordering and I messed up with getting my credit back for this dress. I did not call within the 24 hours because I was so caught up with getting something to wear to replace this dress since I was going to see some of the same people from the first function...kicking myself every since!!!! In any case, I loved this dress but the hem was short as compared to the picture. I ordered both the 0R and 2R and got the same deal with the length. I consider myself short at 5'3" and my heels were low but I think you have to do the math between your height and heel height that you plan to wear when ordering this dress. I think if I went with the 2L it may have worked out. The dress was a great fit and I cannot keep from saying that. My kids complimented me but were not feeling the fact that they could see my entire shoe. Unfortunately I did not take any pictures.

This dress was simple and comfortable, but the best of that is that is looked amazing and was stunning! The fit was perfect and super flattering; hit in all right right places. I'm only 5' 2" and I didn't have to worry about tripping over the bottom of the dress; wore 4' heels.

This was my second choice
I ended up wearing something else. I would have chosen to wear this dress but it was a bit too short even though I ordered a Long. I am 5'7 and with 5 inch heels it looked a bit short. It has a beautiful fit and if it was an inch longer it would have been the option I chose to wear.

.A perfect dress for a formal dinner with the PRESIDENT!
The dress fit perfectly and looked elegant! I was so pleased..as was my date. I wore the 12R as it was not as tight fitting as the 10R...although the 10 was better in the bust. Regardless, because of the flowing lines of the design, a little room looked fine and was more comfortable!

This dress was exactly what I was expecting!
This dress fit great! I loved it! I would recommend it to anyone! It was double layered so it was really warm for the winter military formal event I wore it to. The one shoulder look is so classy! The front is a little shorter than the back, but I liked that because then you can show off the shoes!

The dress was too short on me, and I'm only 5'3". I also thought the fit was off, at least for my body type. Overall, not happy with this dress.

Dress is as expected and in clean condition. Will try RTW again for special events.
The dress is good for formal affairs. Conservative enough with a little design. Nothing super fancy but material is comfortable and stretch. Some of the beads on the shoulder faded a little but nothing very noticeable. Runs true to size but will recommend size up for a more conservative look. Overall good value for the price.

Perfect for charity gala!
I wore this dress for a charity gala I attended for work and it was the perfect combination of sexy and classy. Hugged every curve, but the heavy material works well to smooth imperfections. Wear some type of body shaper to make sure of course! Loved the beading on the shoulder... Also, make sure you get the long if you are over 5'4. It was the perfect length with 3" heels. Only small downfall was this dress was a little hard to dance in.

MY FAVORITE DRESS EVER!!!
I've rented quite a few dresses from RTR and this one is my absolute favorite! The dress is beautiful and incredibly flattering. I wore it to a formal wedding and received compliments all night. My only issue is that the dress is a bit short (even the long length!). I had to wear fancy flat sandals or else the hem would have been above my ankles. I'm 5'9", though, so it probably wouldn't be a problem for most girls.

backup dress; too short
This beading is pretty but the dress itself is short. I said "runs small" because the regular was short on me and I am barely 5'2.
