Got tons of compliments - from strangers!
I went with the 0 because I was worried I would dance the 2 off or step on the dress and pull it off! The 0 was a bit tight but I didn't budge all night! Loved it. Really long though, even with 3 inch heels (I'm 5'2"), tripped a couple times but it was worth it!

This wasn't my first choice but RTR helped me find another dress quickly and overnights it to me.
Runs VERY small in chest area. I am a 34D and felt too voluptuous but still wore it anyway. Lots of compliments. It's pretty long too.

So many compliments on this dress!
This was my first dress I rented from Rent The Runway and it was incredible! This dress fit slightly big so I chose the petite sizing. I am 5'3" with a small bust and I couldn't be happier with the fit. I did wear about a 2" heel so the dress hit just above the floor. This dress is pretty heavy with it being an sequins but overall experience was great and I have never received so many compliments on a dress!

Beautiful dress, but....
This gown is beautiful, but runs really small. I have worn a size 6 in gowns by the same designer without a problem, but this one wouldn't zip up all the way. The bust seems really small. I was super disappointed because it is even more beautiful in person as compared to the picture!

I received a lot of compliments on the dress. It made me feel sexy.
I Wore it for a Mardi Gras Ball I loved it! It was perfect for the occasion. After reading the reviews I went with the long, but it was a little too long. The chest was too small but I wore it anyway. With the black, you could not tell.

It was a dress to remember
It was an absolutely stunning dress in person. No picture can do it justice. My only complaint is that the zipper was a little tricky initially. I needed my mom's help to zip it up, but after zipping up and down on my body a few times by the day of the dance it was no problem at all! I received tons of compliments and would definitely rent it again!

Sequins galore
I ordered this dress for a Mardi Gras ball. When I placed the order I was under the impression that the dress was black with some sort of silver overlay. When I got it, I realized it was all sequin. I was fine with that but was just a little surprised. Overall, I liked this dress and was surprised about the weight of it. It was lighter than I expected. The zipper however, was a total pain. My boyfriend almost couldn't get it up which caused me to panic. After wrestling with it for ten minutes or so, he was able to get it up.

Runs small, draws attention to hips and makes your arms irritated.
This dress ran very small. I am usually between a 4 and a 6 but couldn't get the 6 to zip. If I had worn it, I know the fabric would have irritated my arms. Also, the band and fabric really drew attention to my hips (which I would classify as average) in an unflattering way.

It was my backup gown that arrived same day as event! RTR worked with me to find this gown!
Beautiful gown! Ended up going with the 8R over the 6T because of my broad broad athletic back. Tough to find gowns that have a bit of stretch to accommodate my broad back. This gown was long on me (5,3; 3 inch heels) and the bottom of the gown is A LOT of gown. It lays flat while walking but once you sit it's A LOT of gown. So much fabric on the bottom ye be warned. It's a lot to hold up considering it was long to begin with. This gown was beautiful for the occasion and not as shiny as the photo depicts. The sequins were not too much and for a military event, I was worried about that. Gorgeous dress that wasn't overpowering standing next to my husband for his military ball.

This dress is so elegant! I wore it to an awards event and got so many compliments on it!!
I was worried about the length and based on other reviews opted for the petite. Very glad I did. It was a perfect fit and the length did not drag. I brought several different height shoes just in case I needed to add a few inches! The dress is quite heavy so if you have a smaller chest like me then make sure you wear a sturdy strapless. No one likes having to tug their dress up every five minutes ; ) Overall, I would highly recommend this dress!

Small to size. I normally wear a 2 p but that was way too small. Glad I asked for the 4p. It was comfortable and a little hard to zip up but hubby got it! First time using rent the runway. Love it !

The shipping was very fast and convenient. Also it was extremely easy to ship it back.
The top fit extremely tight and it squeezed me greatly. Also the zipper would get stuck at a certain spot every time. Overall I liked the dress ok enough, I received a lot of compliments. Easy to move in, very classy and elegant. #TauBall #ClassybutSassy

The dress was super tight and difficult to zip, even though the same dress in chiffon fit perfectly. Between that and how shiny it was, I went with the other option I had rented.

This was such a comfortable dress, black for a formal wedding, but not boring at all. Love how it shimmered, would definitely recommend. It is heavy, but a comfortable heavy.

I rented this an another dress for the Marine Corps Birthday ball. I didn't end up wearing it.
This dress was LONG. I'm 5'2...I tried every heel I had and the dress was still too long. I rented the regular version. Dress is gorgeous but if I rented a petite version it would of worked out. I ended up wearing the gold very similar dress which was great.

Amazing Dress, So Many Compliments!!!
Wore this dress for a black tie event. Ordered the 4L, but wore 3 inch heels, so the dress touched the floor. Great for women with a high waist. The top of the dress really holds "the girls" in well. I felt super confident in this dress all night and received so many compliments from so many people that I did not know. I would totally rent this dress again.

Unfortunately, I was unable to wear this beautiful gown.
The dress fit well in the bodice, but was very long. I was recommend ordering a petite if you are in the 5'2, 5'3 range.

Was NOT what I imagined, at all.
The dress is stunning, in person. Unfortunately, it was much longer than described, even with 3.5 inch heels. The worst part of the dress is the waist line, it hit just in the right spot to exaggerate my pear shape: it added bulk to my hips, and made it look like I had a bulging lower tummy (I don't.).

Senior Prom (:
This dress is sooo sparkly and gorgeous, I received many compliments from parents and people at prom. You can't go wrong with this dress, it's one of those dresses that would look good on just about anyone. The only problem is that this dress is a little better fitted for someone with a bigger chest, I'm a 32C and this dress was slipping a lot. By the way, if you were wondering, I was wearing 3 1/2 in. heels.

Very comfortable and tons of compliments
I ordered this for a black tie Holiday Party. I am usually a size 4 and it was suggested to size Up, but the 4 was too big. I could've used a 2, but the 4 still worked, as all the other dress styles I ordered were too big as well. I had to pull it up throughout the night but I don't think it was obvious to anyone and it was still very comfortable. Not at all heavy and I got a ton of compliments. Had it been one size smaller it would have been Perfect but it still did the trick for the night!

Beautiful, but too big
I ordered a 2 and 4 in this dress for a masquerade ball. It's absolutely stunning. I wasn't able to wear it as it showed up late, but when it did arrive I tried it on for fun and the 2 was too big. It's also a bit heavy. I do recommend this dress for someone looking for a beautiful yet simple dress. Just don't forget to size down!

Looks better in person!
I originally planned on wearing a different dress from rent the runway, but the night it was supposed to be shipped to me I got an email saying the size I needed had been damaged beyond repair! Ugh!! I had already selected this dress as a second choice. I ordered my regular size and a size smaller based on reviews. I ended up going with the 2L because the dress was a bit large in the bust. I wore a strapless bra to help keep the dress from falling but still spent the night pulling it up. Like some other reviews said, the sequins rub your underarms and can get pretty uncomfortable as the night goes on. I am 5'7 and wore 5 inch heels with this dress, but still kept tripping throughout the evening. I would suggest ordering regular length to anyone 5'7 or shorter especially if it is a dance event like mine. Even though there are a few downsides to this dress, it was definitely a wonderful choice. I felt like a rock star and got compliments from random strangers all night long. Everything worked out perfectly because at the event, another girl was wearing the same dress I had originally planned on wearing!!! Nothing like running into a complete stranger wearing the same dress as you :) My dress hiccup ended up being a blessing. Overall, I definitely say Rent this dress if you want to feel gorgeous!

I had ordered this dress as a back-up since I had read the other reviews about the length. It was overall too big for me and even with 5 inch heels was too long.

Looks pretty on the HANGER...
In my opinion, for a petite person, this dress is 'up to no good'! I felt 4 sizes larger than I am. The pleating is all around the waist, and really makes you look, kind of, large. The pics posted by other wearers look great, but it just didn't work for me! It is, however, very pretty in person.... might be worth a try for a 2nd dress....

Not For Me
I rented this dress to wear to a Black Tie Wedding on New Years Eve and it wasn't m favorite. It was a bit too heavy for me and the length wasn't right. It made me feel bulky.. i think it was the fit not the dress, as it is very beautiful.

Too bad, too long
This gorgeous dress was just a pinch too small in the bust area and way too long for me to pull it off. I normally wear a 4 or 6 and am 5'1". I couldn't quite get the zipper all the way up on the 6 (which are usually very comfortable fits for me). Even when on, though, there were about 4 inches of dress dragging on the floor. Really too bad, as it is a very pretty gown. RTR and the online stylist, tho, were both really helpful. I ordered two dresses (2 sizes in this one and a back up dress) the Monday before Sandy hit NYC. I never received my backup dress but was very impressed that they were able to deliver this one. I will definitely use RTR again.

Gorgeous, elegant and memorable without being an obvious look at me dress!
At a party with several hundred people, a gay man walked straight up to me and said, if I could be any girl here, it would be you. Priceless!! Received tons of compliments on this dress! Was my first RTR experience and I will definitely be back! Can sometimes wear a 6 (ordered another dress by same designer -Glitz Gown, 6 fit perfectly), but this one was not even close, 8 worked perfectly. Very secure, could hold my arms up and jump, and the dress didn't budge! No room for a bra, but bust of dress is very forgiving. Wore heavy chunky jewelry to make it less serious, dress was comfortable all night. Heavy, but not bad, you will not be able to get on by yourself!! No joke!

Beautifully made
I rented this gown for a black tie gala. The dress is beautifully made. I regularly wear a 6 but had to size up to a 10 b/c this dress cinches in the waist. The dress was also incredibly long even with wearing 4" heels so I would not recommend renting this dress if you are petite and are going to an event where you will be dancing or walking a lot.

Gorgeous dress, but ran too small for my shape.
I ordered this dress for my fancy b-day dinner, but couldn't wear it because it was too small. I have a wide back and large bust, so I guess this brand just isn 't suited for my shape. I ordered another style and fit into the 14 easily, so I know this one runs small. The dress had plenty of length though and I would have had to hold it up to walk even with 3" heels. Gorgeous, high-quality dress though - would recommend for maybe C cup ladies.

NYE 2012
I ordered the size 4L and it would not zip up around my rib cage but fit well everywhere else. My backup size was a 6L and it was too big. I had to wear a belt to hold it up. I think if the dress is sized perfectly, it is truly amazing and very flattering. Also, I'm 5'8 and wore 100mm heels and it was dragging a bit with the 6L but not with the 4L. Overall, I definitely recommend this dress just be sure to know your size and chat with a fit specialist if you are at all unsure.

Beautiful dress. HEAVY material!!! The bust was very small and large bottom.
The dress was gorgeous but extremely heavy. I would have chosen to wear the dress had it not been so heavy. Would reconsider if you plan to do some dancing. The bust was also very small for a size 10, but there is plenty of give in the bottom portion. Zipper was also a little tricky.

Big busted girls beware
I ordered the dress a size up after reading the comments from others but I didn't realize it would be that tight on my bust! It definitely did not fit like a 14, which I expected to be too loose.Granted I am a very curvy girl with a small waist but the dress was absolutely not zipping up over my 36F chest. Fortunately I ordered a back up dress which I loved.

What other dress did you order because I have a large chest, too, and am worried about fit.

Great Dress
I wore a close version of this dress in the fall and loved it, so ordered the black sequin for a winter formal. zipper is a bit of an issue so needed a second pair of hands to get me in, but once zipped up looked great. Got a ton of complements, and the dress was just the right length with 3 inch heels. Just enough sparkle without being too much.
