This dress = great night
The dress fit true to size. The sleeves were not too tight, able to dance, hug and have the best time. Had baby 11.5 mos ago and don't love my stomach... this dress hid everything I wanted to hide and accentuated everything I wanted accentuated. Rent this dress! You won't be sorry.

Elegant but long...watch the train situation.
This dress is elegant, fairly comfortable (other than the need for a strapless bra), and forgiving because of the gathering at the middle. Watch the length though....I went with a 10L (I could have done the 8 but felt a little squeezed across the chest. I am 5'8" and wore heels (3") and still nearly killed myself with the length of the dress. It was perfect in front, but had a slight train in the back that I ended up having to hold up every time I walked. If I had gone with higher heels, it would have helped, but if you are shorter than 5'8", you might want to go with the regular length, even with heels. (Or at least get it as a back up.)

Performance complete with a glamorous wardrobe
Dress was awesome very forgiving although I would recommend a corset for mommies it hid my curves a little too well. I felt very glamorous! It creeped down quite a bit so I would recommend tape and an extra dress size down just in case. Overall awesome experience with RTR

I felt like the Belle of the Ball in the dress! This momma felt very beautiful in this dress!
This dress fits true to size. The top was a tad too big so it was a little scratchy, but that is my only complaint. It has a very flattering ruching in all the right places. My husband liked this dress so much he wanted me to buy this dress and wear it to every future ball! HA! I will never buy a formal dress again! RTR is the best thing since sliced bread!

I was so happy with the way I looked and the dress cam right on time.
The dress ran a little small but I got two sizes so was able to use the larger size. It looked absolutely beautiful and I received so many compliments.

The dress was amazing and I got so many compliments. I felt very relaxed and at ease.
Fit was true to size. I wore a corset to support my chest , but felt very comfy in the torso area, so some may be able to go without any bra, etc. I did occasionally have to lift my hem a little when walking to prevent my heel from catching the back of the gown. My height is 5'3 199lbs cup size 38DD, waist 31/32. Dress size 14 perfecto.

Gorgeous dress. Loved that it covered up my arms yet showed some shoulder.
Its comfortable. It's stretchy material. It's LONG. I'm 6' flat foot and I wore 3 inch heels. In the photo, you can see that the dress was the perfect length. Highly recommend this dress for tall ladies.

Comfortable dress that hides any flaws
It was a nice dress that hid my arms and stomach.. but I wore the 6L with 4 inch heels and the train made it difficult to walk in.

A show stopper!!
This dress was the life of the party. I initially ordered a 16R but although I only 5"2',the front only grazed my ankles. I returned it for a 16L and it was perfect. I received so many compliments.

The length was perfect! The back of the dress was a little longer which I didn't realize but made the dress even better! I wore a black pump with this dress.

This was a great dress! Coupled with a vintage fur, I felt like old Hollywood!
Dress fits well, very comfortable. I wore medium size heels, if you want higher, you may want the longer dress. This was my first experience renting and I am so glad I did! I will be back!

It fit my boobs perfectly!
I loved everything about it except the bottom. It cut short so my shoes were kind of a let down. Be sure to wear shoes you want to be seen haha. I'm a 36G and this wasn't too tight at all.

Lots of dancing!
I should have ordered the regular length, otherwise the fit was good. Wound up stepping into the dress to avoid having to zip it. The dress is true to size, though with my heavy bust I had to get the 14 for a better fit. The dress has a lot of give and is perfect for dancing! Got tons of compliments, felt like a million bucks❤

10/10 stars!
This wasn't my first choice but became my number one very quickly after my first option was unavailable. Being 5'9" I was concerned about length but wearing sequin sandals worked just fine. I did hold it up at times on the dance floor. It wasn't terribly low cut so I didn't tug at it all night. The fabric is "pleated" at just the right places in the middle section to hide curves. I did wear Spanx for added support. Overall I was very satisfied and loved that the cut made it so my arms weren't rubbing on the sequins!

Sparkles for days!
Loved this dress. Ended up wearing the bigger size because the arms felt more comfortable and provided more room for dancing. Could have worn the 14 but wanted comfort. Length was perfect. This dress covered the curves in the right places. I felt great in it and would rent it again!

Very nice quality the dress had no tears or beads missing and it didn't catch onto everything
Im 6'1 and wore 3inch heels and ordered the 14L i had to hold it up sometimes to walk as to not step on it. Very nice dress and if your arms are bug dont try this dress i was comfortable but the arms dont stretch.

Wise decision, affordable and show stopping.
I was the emcee for a black tie event and this was my first rental. I only do a few of these a year and recycling a dress for these occasions isn't really an option so this was a first! I am also 6 months post partum and I didn't have anything that made me feel beautiful (or fit for that matter). So I rented, was sick from my toddler in the days before the event so I didn't even try the dresses on until the day of! Crazy, I know. I was really comforted by having a backup size though. The smaller size fit perfectly, strangely the bigger size seemed too short. I got a ton of compliments, felt demure but sexy and am definitely using rent the runway lots more in the future.

Dress was elegant, flattering, forgiving, comfortable, and basically perfect!
I am pear-shaped, a tall-ish 5'8", and typically wear 14 on top and 16 on bottom. I ordered a 14WL and 16, and the fits were very comparable in the chest, arms, midsection, and hips, but I DEFINITELY felt like I needed the extra length of the 14WL, so I went with that one. I would go with 16XL if I could do it again. Both were fitted enough on top that my size 14 shoulders / 37C chest fit fine, and my wider hips did not have any issues with either size either. So I'd say the sizes are very accomodating and would recommend trying two different lengths with your backup size. Barefooted, the regular 16 was about 2" off the floor in the front, and the 14WL was 1" off the floor in the front. With 1.5" heel shoes, I still felt it was stretchy enough to pull it down and the length looked fine all night. There is a slight train in the back, so length there was not an issue with either one. I did have to hold up the back of the dress to walk at all times in my heels because they'd get caught in the train if I didn't....so keep that in mind if you need mobility with heels for dancing or whatever. With my shoes off, I could've practically worked out in the dress it was so comfortable :) I didn't notice any discomfort from the boning that some reviewers mentioned. Some reviewers mentioned that no bra was necessary. I tried it both ways, but felt like it looked and felt much better with a strapless bra. All in all, I felt lovely at my event, got many complements, and would definitely wear this dress again. One more thing, I was a little concerned they they had sent the wrong sizes when the two tags clearly read only "14" and "16" (not 14WL), but the dresses had obviously been tailored to the W and L as ordered.

Great dress!
Wore this dress for a gala. The arms are fitted, but this is nice as it helps keep the dress up. Slightly itchy at the end of the sleeves from sequins. Roushing around stomach is nice and hides that post cesarean pooch. Sequins do reflect a lot of light. Over all very comfy, didn't feel like I was tugging it up all night. Tons of compliments. With my red hair I felt like Jessica Rabbit, lol.

This dress fit like a glove, I couldn't have been happier. The zipper was a pain, (if I hadn't read other reviews I would have freaked out) but once I had it zipped it was smooth sailing.

Compliments all night!
I sized up due to my increased bust size from breastfeeding. The fit was perfect. It helped to conceal the bit of a pooch I still have leftover from having a baby, which was nice. I received compliments on it all night. I wore a 3.5" heel and never had to worry about the dress being too long.

I wore this gown to a formal scholarship gala.
I was very pleased with the fit of this gown. There was enough stretch for movement and it wasn't too heavy. There was plenty of room in the top (I am very heavy chested). I received tons of compliments.... I would definitely recommend this gown.

My dress arrived looking fabulous! I received 12+ compliments throughout the night.
The stretch material made this dress contour perfectly to my figure. I bought the adhesive bra from the RTR shop and it was perfect. The material on the arms was not scratchy and the dress length was ideal for my 5'4" frame. I danced throughout the night and the dress was ideal. The highlight of the evening was when an attendee approached me and said that she was thrilled to see that "gala" wear was not lost. I agree - it's always better to dress up than dress down. This is the beginning of my RTR journey. Follow me on Instagram @katmccommon. Thanks RTR for a wonderful experience.

Loved this dress--my first experience with RTR!
The reviews helped me select this dress. It was a bit heavy, but overall very comfortable. I danced with no problem. At 5'8" I worried the Regular wouldn't be long enough, but it skimmed the top of my shoes (3 inch heel) perfectly. I didn't trip on the hem at all. The sleeves were slightly restrictive, but nothing that made dancing impossible. I did need major help with the zipper, but that was no problem--sequins will do that. I felt secure and comfortable in it all night, and got tons of compliments. I paired it with the white marabou caplet on my shoulders --perfect cover up for cold weather.

It was really big in the stomach area I'm a naturally thick women i was expecting snuggled
The zipper was a little hard to zip I'm assuming because someone before me rented it being bigger then a 14 I'm normally a 12 can even wear a 10 but I know how these dress go and it wasn't true to size I could have easily worn a 12 the stomach area and bust area was extremely stretch out
