Best Bridesmaid dress ever for NEw Years Eve wedding!
This dress is perfection for any woman with an apple shape. My only gripe is that this dress is SHORT. I am 5'7" and ordered the Long and still could only wear 2" heels with it. The fabric is amazing and it was perfect as my bridesmaid dress for a wedding on New Year's Eve - the bride let us wear whatever long black gown we wanted. Loved this dress!!

It was my sorority formal
Just like the reviews said, it FER SURE runs small. Even 1 size up was a little too snug and caused the peplum to be higher than it was supposed to be, leaving the bottom of my stomach exposed so i wore the suit jacket and it all blended and hid my stomach really well! The dress had been worn a lot so the ribbing in the dress to give it shape and help slim you down in the waist area was very flimsy and didn't offer much support or structure. However I did get complimented all evening and i felt very comfortable in it even though it was a tight fit around my thighs. I am 5'4 and the regular hit the floor PERFECTLY WITHOUT SHOES! In the picture I am just in my socks.

Elegant Night
The dress fit very well overall and looked very good on. The only thing is that maybe because I am a bit short and only wore ballet flats it scrunched up a bit under the bust area. Definitely great idea to have a 2nd size.

The dress was beautiful. It covered up my stomach perfectly without any shapewear!
Although the dress runs small if you are bigger with smaller bust you need to get a pushup bra or something to fill in the bust because it will hang a little. I used this push up sticky bra thing from Walmart it worked well but I was constantly trying to pull up the top of my dress because it was afraid it would come down.

RTR is so easy and convenient to use! I will definitely be using it from now on!
I wore this to my husbands Marine Corps Ball. Zipper is a little tricky. Dress does run small. I usually wear an 18, but the 18 was too small, and the size 20 wasn't available. I evaded up having to wear a 22. It was a little big, but it worked. Flattering dress!

Curves for days!
Can't even tell you how much I loved this dress. Form fitting in all the right ways, the fabric is a bit stretchy and hides all sorts of flaws. I felt super sexy in this size 16 and that doesn't happen often. The length was perfect with a pair of 3.5" heels. Best of all it was comfortable! Highly recommend for the curvy ladies.

Absolutely stunning dress!
Got many compliments on it. The 18 was a bit snug in my chest- my girls were popping up, but perfect length for heels I got it in a long and I am 5'6, size 20 would of been perfect. The material is thick and very forgiving, and the peplum hides any perfections. You absolutely cannot go wrong with this dress!!!

Runs Small & Short
I ordered a size bigger than I normally wear and it was still tight, i'm guessing two sizes bigger would of worked. I'm 5'7" and the regular was really short. It hit me at the ankle. If I had no choice I could have closed the zipper and looked like a stuffed sausage with a short dress on. But fortunately I had ordered a back up dress that fit better. I did not wear this dress.

Fast service, didn't need the extra size.
The dress was beautiful! It is a snug fit so order up a size, maybe 2. Im 5'6 and with 4 inch heels the dress perfectly grazed the floor. Glad I read the reviews because if I ordered the regular length it would have been too short. The dress is plain so I suggest pairing it with a statement necklace.

Easy rental process
I'm normally an 18/20W. This dress fit pretty well everywhere except in the bust where I would have preferred a tighter fit. The 20WR was not available as a back up so the 22WR was my only option. A good strapless bra helped with the fit up top. Overall, it was a great rental experience, easy delivery, easy return. The dress itself had some boning that poked me a bit so it may be time for some TLC on this one. I felt great in the dress. For my first experience with RTR, I was very pleased with the process.

Dress fits way too small
I am 5'7 and wear an 18W. Based on other reviews I ordered this dress in a 20W and a 22W. Both dresses didnt fit and I had to select an Adriana Pappell 18W dress instead. Beware the dress runs very small!

The dress was perfect for our concert!
This dress was worn by my sister who is normally a 16, but the 16 didn't zip up in the back, so we were happy to have the alternate size! It was a good fit in the body, but the bust area was really large. We had to literally pull the back together and pin it to keep her boobies from falling out.

Beautifully convenient!
I was nervous about size and delivery time, but was thrilled both dresses in two different sizes came on time. I was more thrilled when I tried it on and it fit perfectly. I received so many compliments. I was surprised at how easy it was to contact a representative over the phone also. Its nice to confirm things with live people. Overall, I will proudly brag about my experience with Rent the Runway. This was a great experience.

Love the peplum!
My first round of gowns I rented for my works 2 year anniversary event were too short so I worked w the amazing customer service for this gown! I thought I went up a size and got it in long but I got it and it was just bigger. The dress was big all over, constantly had to pull it up- even wore cups in my bra to hold it up. Also im 5'9 and the dress was about 2 inches above ground. Aside from being big and short I got tons of compliments and everyone loved the dress.

My BFF and I were the best dressed women in the room!
The fit was a little large for me, as I actually wear a 16, but "fit" instructions said to size up. In any event it looked beautiful...even better than I thought it would since I've never worn a sleeveless dress like this in my life! Out of 200 women only four of us were dressed appropriately. Oh, and Badgly rocks!

Amazing dress...makes you feel like a million dollars!!
I was very hesitant to rent a dress I had never tried on because I can be difficult to fit. I'm petite in stature, but very curvy with a short torso. After reading almost every review and comparing measurements and pictures I decided to go with the 16WR. I was worried it would be too short looking at other pictures, but it hit the ground perfectly with my 4 inch heels! The dress was snug, but the peplum hid all my imperfections. I was getting great compliments all night and I felt absolutely AMAZING in this dress!!! If you're hesitant to order this dress, just do it. You will not regret it!! The fabric is heavy and luxurious, and is so comfortable! I'm so glad I went through with renting this dress!!

Very flattering, well made dress with great stretch around the hips but structure in the bust.
Consider the length, I felt like people were stepping on the train through the night. It was a little tough to zip due to the way the dress was made which made getting in/out a little tricky. Overall I got SO many compliments from ladies and men alike!

I could not wear the dress. I am a true size 20. This dress was extremely tight.
I am 5'5 and the dress seemed short on me. I would recommend renting the long and opting for one size bigger.

It fit perfectly! It was very slimming as well. Wore it to my junior winter formal & got so many compliments. It was also very comfortable to sit & dance in.

This dress was great!
I loved the dress. The material has some give to it, so it was snug where you need it to be and not in other places. The peplum covered my belly and the V-neck accentuated "the girls." I am 5'3" and with a little heel the dress was the perfect length.

Wore this dress to my partner's sister's wedding. It was a hit all the way around!
I am a short torso'ed, 34J cup bra wearing size 16. The dress fit btw true to size and a little small for the size. It was very comfortable once it was on. I needed 2 people to help me zip it because the zipper keep sticking. I wore Spanx under it, but the Peplum was so forgiving, that I could have went without it! I am only 4'11" so I wore it with 4" heels which had the dress stopping right at the floor in the front, and left just enough for the train to drag in the back. In retrospect, I should have gone with a 4.5' heel just to give me a little more length in the front. I wear a 34J cup bra and the bodice accommodated my ample bust with no problem. It felt very secure. I danced and jumped and bent over and hugged folk, all with no problems, or fear of a wardrobe malfunction. There was a little bit of bunching in the back because of my short torso, but that was not the dress's fault. Also, it was covered by the shrug I chose, seen in the picture, which also covered my too large arms. If you have arms that are larger than you are comfortable with, then I encourage you to pair this dress with a shrug. Overall - It fit well, was very comfortable to wear, and looked fabulous! I encourage anyone to rent it!

You look gorgeous! The shrug really complements the gown - what brand is it? Do you what material it is made out of?

ThThis gown arrived on time but zipped up only to waist; and felt I was tricked by the size16W. Normally the W after the size is for women, the tag clearly did not have that W! it only had size 16, and i normally wear a size 16 or 14. ank goodness for Davids' Bridal where I found a strapless black crepe chiffon empire with "diamonds"

I ordered this dress because I loved the look of it. Other reviews said to size up because it runs small. I wear an 18 so I ordered the 20. Thank goodness I also received a different dress! The 20 was way too small! Oddly enough the different dress I received was a 18 and fit perfectly! The dress itself is beautiful, but runs way too small. Size up, and then size up again!

Dress was classy, elegant and stunningly beautiful.
This dress was stunningly amazing. From the reviews I decided to order one size up and got a 22 and a 20 just in case. The upper portion is cut a bit small so even though the 20 fit I went with the 22 to be safe. It is very flattering and provides great coverage to the mid section. I received many compliments throughout the evening and later through messages and I knew this was the right choice. If you are considering this dress I go for it! You will not be disappointed.

Gorgeous Dress! AMAZING Accessories!
As usual, the service at RTR was exceptional. The dresses and accessories arrived on time and ready to wear. The return process was easy as pie, and I can’t wait for my next event so that I can use RTR again! Now for the details: The dress is absolutely beautiful! It complements every curve and hides every flaw! The dress definitely runs small; so size up! I am a true 16 and both the 18WL and the 20WL fit, but I wore the 20WL because the length was longer. The 18WL was tight and accentuated my curves a bit more than the 20WL did. I could wear the dress with or without Spanx and a bra, but had I worn the 18WL, I probably would have felt more comfortable wearing Spanx and no bra, because the top of the dress has a built in corset that lifts and helps display the bust, and a bra would have caused a bit of an “overflow”. However, the length of the 18WL was about half an inch off the floor with 2 inch heels. (A big “no-no” for me.) I wore the 20WL with a push-up bra so that the top would fit a bit tighter. I opted out on the Spanx since the dress was a bit loose. As far as the length goes, it was perfect! I could easily wear four inch heels and the dress would just graze the floor! The ring and bracelet are stunning! The bracelet fit just right, but the ring was a bit snug. I could have squeezed it onto my ring finger, but I chose to wear it on my pinky instead. This is not something I usually do, but the ring was too spectacular to pass up! Overall, this has been my favorite RTR look!

Unexpected Winner
This dress was sent to me as a replacement for one that wasn't ready in time. I would have never even thought of picking a peplum style dress, but I am so glad the stylist sent it too me. It was two sizes bigger than my normal size but it fit perfectly everywhere except the bust. I have am 40DDD and there was still some extra room up top. I got a lot of compliments and felt comfortable all night. My stomach is my problem area and this dress was very flattering. I highly recommend it!

I attended a very fancy formal wedding.
Overall, I LOVED this dress! I got plenty of compliments on it. It is so chic and classy and accentuates all the right areas. I thought I might look silly in it because I am short-waisted but the peplum is placed perfectly and the dress is cut just right. The dress does run about one size small. I'm 5'5 but I found the 22WL to hit perfectly with a 1-2 inch heel. The zipper is very tough to get all the way up due to its "hidden" design so I wound up putting the dress on overhead. My bra size is 46DD.

The Peplum did wonders!
I received so many compliments on this dress. I wore it to a formal wedding. My size is an 18 in most of my clothes. I am glad that I ordered the 20WL. An 18 would have been too small on the bottom and just right on the top but the 22 would have been way too big on the top and just right on the bottom. I ordered the Long to make sure that it was long enough because i was wearing heels (I ordered a regular in a different dress style before and it felt short to me the entire night). The dress wound up being slightly too long but not too long that it was a nuisance throughout the night. The top portion of the dress was a little big around my bust. I kept adjusting it but that was just because I was making sure that I was not showing more than I needed too (lol). I am bottom heavy so the bottom portion of the dress was a bit snug (but I expect that from most of my clothes). The material stretched which made the dress snug but gave me a fabulous silhouette. The peplum and the belt gave a classic cut dress a more modern look. I think the peplum disguised my stomach and and my butt some which is always a plus. I did wear a shorts girdle that went from under my busts to my mid thigh . My bust size is actually a 40D.

I received numerous compliments on this dress!
This dress fit really well. I would suggest getting a size larger than your normal size, however. I wore this for my sorority formal. It was very flattering and I was comfortable in it. It is an extremely well-made dress, and the peplum is so cute!
