Elegant, classy, perfect! If you're a body conscious lady, this is the dress for you!
Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore 2.75" heels with the size 8L dress and the length was perfect- just barely grazed the floor. The dress seemed to get longer throughout the night due to the weight of the sequins, so I was holding it up on the way out to the car, but I'd rather hold a dress up then tug it down all night long to make it look longer. This was my back-up dress, so I only had one size. I think the 10L would've fit better, but I just put a highwaisted shapewear and a corset with a strapless bra built into it underneath and the 8L fit like a glove (I never thought I would fit into an 8 again, so that felt great!). The arms felt constricting at first (note: get the dress zipped up without your arms in the sleeves and then put your arms in the sleeves- much easier to put it on that way), but as I got used to them they were not a big deal. I was able to dance to any song in this dress. The neckline is so great- shows just enough to be sexy, but not so much to feel "exposed." The sleeves fit my arms perfectly (I was afraid they would be too small). Most of the material that was meant to help hold the dress and sleeves up had been worn off the dress, so I did have to give the dress a tug maybe three times the whole night to not show too much of my chest, but for the most part I didn't worry about that at all. I could see that being an issue if the dress was too big. I thought I would feel like a bit of a "linebacker" with broad shoulders, but the elegance of the dress melted that feeling away. I felt old Hollywood glamorous all night long. I decided the pros of this dress out-weighed the cons of my other dress (the Vera Wang "Grand Entrance Gown"), so I wore this one to my event. I could sit in it without feeling fat and could dance and be comfortable in it. The perfect length sealed the deal, and I'm really glad I chose this dress for my event.

The sequins and modest but still sexy neckline made for an incredible, statement-making dress!
Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was gorgeous! My event was a Winter Formal dance at my high school. I ordered the zero and the two, both in regular length. I am 5'7", and the regular was a little short on me for my liking with heels that were about two or three inches tall. I made it work the best I could though, and it didn't bother me too much!(: The only reason why I wore the two instead of the zero (both fit) was because 1. the two was longer, and 2. the two fit a little looser which actually made the dress more flattering. I would recommend ordering your usual size, and then a size up for this reason. The sequins are well spread out in a way that they cover the dress, but they're incredibly flattering, classy and mature looking. Nothing tacky about this dress. The sleeves weren't very confining for me, and I was dancing ALL NIGHT LONG. Yes, they were a little itchy, but it's nothing terrible!(: I received compliments all night, and I even won Queen of the dance! This dress made it an unforgettable night - I loved it!

I wore this dress for a Black Tie Gala and it was perfect! I got compliments all night.
Size worn: 12R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress fit great and I ended up wearing my regular dress size. I was also very comfortable all night long. I never felt like it was too fitted or stiff from all of the sequins. The dress was just long enough for me to wear heels, so it didn't go to the floor like the picture (that was fine for me). The whole experience was great and I will use RTR again.

I loved the dress! It was elegant and had such great quality. Plus no one else had my dress on!
Size worn: 12R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Quality of the dress and the fit was great! It hugged my body where I needed it to and was stretchy enough to feel comfortable! It even had extra support in the chest area where I needed it since I'm full chested. And I love the way it cinched up in the back right above my butt to give it some shape and volume. I'm 3 months pregnant in the picture but I felt fabulous. My husband had doubts about renting it and receiving it so close to the event, but I felt so confident with a back up size and another back up dress- and I didn't even need it! A big plus is, I was never afraid someone would wear the same dress as mine! We live in Fort Knox where many companies hold formal balls and all the girls shop at the same stores! I've seen several girls where the same dress. Oh...RTR, you're the best!

Loved this dress. Easy to wear, comfortable and beautiful Great fit -- it runs true to size/ a bit large. I ordered my size (4) and one size up -- next time would do my size and one size down Think a 2, if it would have zipped up over my back/shoulders would have given a better fit over waist/stomach The long was perfect length with 4 inch heels - and I'm just shy of 5'7". Very flattering! Highly recommend.

I love this dress. Several people were disappointed when I told them it was rented--they felt I should have bought it. The dress arrived in pristine condition. I ordered the 14 and the 16--but wore the 16 cause I thought it fit better in the shoulder and bust area. I wore 4" heels with the dress--it would have dragged on the floor otherwise. Overall, it was stunning and I would rent it again.

I ordered two sizes of the dress, but it was true to size :) I wore this dress to a military ball. I was worried about the length because I am 5'9, but when I put my heels on, the dress was just the right length. I love the way the dress sparkled, and the fact that it wasn't too flashy, it was perfect for this event! I had so much fun wearing this dress!

My dress was unique and beautiful, I felt like old Hollywood glam!
Size worn: 10L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dresses arrived on time and were packaged very neatly. I ordered a 12L as a backup size, but probably should have gone with the 8L since the 12L was much too big. The 10L fit perfectly, however there was a 5 inch opening in the seam on the side of the dress where the stitching had come loose. Luckily I was able to stitch it right up and had no other issues after that. I wore the dress to my husband's company holiday party and I received compliments all night. I will definitely use RTR again since this experience was so wonderful.

I was initially nervous renting with RTR since it was my first time but it worked out beautifully. (Though there was a little problem with the zipper, which made getting in and out of the dress a bit difficult.) It fit just as I had imagined, it looked amazing and I felt amazing!

The dress was amazing! The event was a Black tie party that is held every two years.
Size worn: 16R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress arrived packaged wonderfully. Nothing about this dress felt like it had ever been worn before. I am 5'3 and instead of buying tall platform shoes (knowing that I would be dancing) I used the double sided dress tape to put a two inch hem in the front only. The train fell elegantly- however did make it interesting to dance without stepping on it, I was comfortable all evening- and had many strangers come up to ask about the dress and to tell me how beautiful it was. You will need undergarments to cinch your waist, but the dress is very forgiving of all bumps or bulges. It did not even show a back bulge over the edge of the dress.... GORGEOUS!!! The whole experience of using RTR was incredible and I am telling everyone! Thank you so much for making this evening magical!

Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this beautiful black, full length, sparkley dress for a black tie wedding at the Biltmore in Coral Gables! It was perfect for the occasion. Fit like it was custom made for me. Received many compliments on the dress and overall look. I wore long silver earrings, no necklace because to interfere with this neckline would be criminal and black with some white high heels. Used a black sequin clutch. Would recommend this dress! I'm 5'5 and wore probably 4in heels and the length fell perfectly. I have breast implants and am nursing my nine week old daughter so you can imagine the "fullness" of my bust and it held everything in snugly and was flattering. Received many compliments on the dress on FB the next day from people who weren't at the wedding! I will be revealing my secret of my rent-a-dress shortly...!

When I got this dress, I was instantly in love with it! I was able to wear 6 inch heels, and still have the train to follow! It was beautiful! I was in the running for best dress at prom. It was classy, and showed off all the right parts without taking away from me! It was all just to perfect, and there were so many different options for jewelry! A perfect dress.

I went on your website with my mother and found this incredible statement making attention grabbing dress for her. I never expected such perfection. Although a bit large it still was nothing short of a jaw dropper. She felt exquisite! From the time she walked in to the event until the time she left she had men and women, attending guests of the event and work staff all commenting on how she looked and asking where did she find such a gown. In my mother's words when she put it on, " Its simply beautiful, it exudes femininity and yet is empowering all at the same time." My mother says, "If you want to go unnoticed do not rent this dress, however if you want to be the center of attention this would be the gown to attract all of that and then some." Thank you RTR for making my mom feel beautiful on the outside as I know how amazingly beautiful she is on the inside and giving her an incredible evening! She's 46 years old, 5'4", hourglass figure, usually wears a 12/14 dress, and 36DD bust and her name is Kanella, she's my beautiful mom.

Thanks to this beautifully beaded (and oh so comfy!) Badgeley Mischka gown, I received more compliments than I knew what to do with. Made this special black tie event even more special to me, I was being pulled for photo ops with so many people...how cool is that. RTR makes everything so super easy, I don't know why anyone would buy another dress ever again. The dresses arrived beautifully, the earrings were gorgeous - I had the best time ever putting this on and strutted the whole evening like a celebrity. I am a fan of you all ~ can't wait for another event so I can rely on you guys :)

I wore this dress to the Navy Day Ball and I will admit, when I first tried the dress on, I was a little disappointed. I felt like the dress was a little too big and made me look straight up and down and minimized my curves (I know a lot of women want to minimize their curves, but I love mine and thought this dress would accentuate them). All the reviews and descriptions I read said that the dress fit pretty tightly, so I ordered my usual size 12 and a 14 as a back up. When I got the dress, I wished I had ordered the 10 as a back up instead. But seeing as I had no way to get another dress in time for the ball, I decided to experiment. Most of the extra room was up top, so I ended up wearing two strapless bras to give me a little extra filler up top and it really did help. When I got to the ball in my gown, everyone loved it, and I loved how I felt in it! I still wish I had gotten the 10, but it really was a beautiful dress and even people I didn't know complimented me on it. It was also very comfortable and easy to move around in. I would definitely recommend this dress to anyone looking to be the belle of the ball, so to speak. It's definitely an attention getter! Thanks RTR!! :)

Overall the dress fit good. You will NEED to wear spanx or some type of really good shapewear (i used miracle suit). If you have large breast you will need to have something pushing them back and please get help (friends or family) to zip you up:-) I got a 16R, but I think the Long would have been better becasue i had on high heels. Overall the dress was AMAZING and everyone LOVED IT! My Experience with the RTR staff was awesome! The stylist advice was perfect, so I knew what to expect and that really helped! Thank you again! I will be using AGAIN for sure!

This dress is very true to size. The way the material gathers overs the midriff is very flattering so if you're selfconcious about your stomach, this is the dress for you! It hugs your body in all the right places and accents your curves. The open neckline draws attention up and is just gorgeous. I felt like a princess! And the length is perfect!!

This Badgley Mischka gown is just gorgeous! It runs true to size, and I received many compliments! The mother of the bride told me that I looked like should of been the mom of the bride! I was concerned that it would an 8L would be too short, so I ordered an *ex-lg, and it was plenty long! My only disappointment was that I wish I had ordered one of RTR's beautiful necklaces to compliment the gown. I did need something on my neck! I am looking forward to my next event so that I can order from RTR again! Thank you so much for making it all so easy and fun!

Stunning - I got LOTS of compliments all night!
Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I ordered this dress for a cocktail party at work, and it was a huge success. While its really difficult to get on by yourself (the zipper comes up low enough on your back where hooking it is a challenge), it is so flattering. The rouching hides any lumps/bumps, and the partial sleeve equally hides any trouble areas, and the resulting neckline is gorgeous. I got loads of compliments from all the party attendants! The other thing of note is how comfortable this dress is. There's plenty of stretch to allow you dance and move. I ordered the long, in order to allow for my 3" heels, and it hit exactly at the right point; I didn't need to hike up my skirts unless I was walking up stairs, and so there was no tripping worry. I absolutely recommend this dress for any fancy dress/black tie event.

Amazing! Got many many compliments on the dress. I'm short and have post baby belly, so it's not easy to find something that's looks good. This dress is it ! Well constructed and the ruching helps hide flaws. I ordered the 12r and 14r. There was a huge difference in the size. There was no way I could zip up the 12 but the 14 fit but was a little loose. It still looked great. Can't wait to rent agin !!!

Rent The Runway became my backup. I was initially nervous about showing so much skin because I am top heavy and I carry additional weight around my mid-section. But your dress actually complimented my body shape. I received compliments the entire evening. I felt very comfortable in this dress. My face beamed as I took my walk down the isle as "MOB". My Sister told me "you want your daughters to look back on this day and be proud of how their Mother looked". They are! Thank You! Rachanda Antoine

This dress was absolutely fabulous for prom! I normally wear a 4R and got the 2R as a backup, but wore the 2R because although the 4R technically fit, it made me look wide. In contrast, the 2R hugged every curve perfectly and I had a gorgeous and unique look for my prom. It was a bit short, but I embraced it and got some fabulous shoes to show off underneath. In addition, I am an A cup size and the top made me look completely flat without a bra. So I bought a strapless push-up bra and it brought me back to my normal size underneath the dress! Rent the Runway was easy to work with and I loved the experience!

One woman told me that I looked like I just stepped off the red carpet at the Academy Awards. I felt like a movie star!

The compliments never stopped, I was told by people I didnt even know that my dress was classy, elegant, red carpet worthy, gorgeous!

This dress is stunning! When it arrived it looked like I was the first person to wear it. The whole process was flawless from when it arrived to sending it back. I was of course a little nervous about renting a dress that I had never tried on before but getting 2 sizes helped, and everything ended up perfectly. I ordered the 4R and the 4L (the 2 wasn't available, and I knew a 6 would be too big) Both fit, I ended up wearing the 4R with very flat sandals and the dress barely skimmed the ground. I tried the 4L with 5.5" heels and the dress still had an inch or two on the ground, and I knew for most of the night I wouldn't have shoes on anyways. I got SO many comments about how gorgeous the dress was, how I looked like a movie star, or ready to accept an award or something :) It really is a classy and elegant dress! One thing though, I dont have many curves, I have a very straight/nonexistent waist. The model in the pic has an hourglass figure. This dress did not give me curves, so looking at it straight on made me look a little wide. However, a slight turn to the side and BAM awesomeness. Most of the time people arent standing still anyways so its not an issue! Anyways, I could go on an on about how stunning this dress was (oops looks like I already did) but if you are even considering this dress go for it! It was amazing!

I felt absolutely beautiful. The dress hid all of my imperfections and with the right undergarments I had a beautiful hourglass figure that every woman wants. The dress was not too heavy and I absolutely loved the way it made me look

I wore this dress for prom this year. I felt so beautiful and stunning. The dress was so incredibly comfortable even though my undergarments werent. I received so many compliments even from students i didnt know. Not to mention the rtr service team is awesome! This dress came ripped in the seams, very noticeably in the back. I contacted them and they said the dress would be overnighted. Unfortunately, UPS messed up the order and the dress was not scheduled until Monday. RTR contacted me straight away and when I asked for a refund, they were more than willing to provide one. I repaired the dress temporarily for the night and there were no issues, and I still get my refund. This is a legitimate company who are really out to service their customers.

I read the reviews already submitted about the dress and they all won me over since not one person had something bad to say. I was thrilled that the dress was in perfect condition and it looked like I was the first person to ever wear it. I can't wait to rent another dress!

I could not have found a more perfect dress anywhere else! It hugged in all the right places and since the material is stretchy, I had room to move. I originally decided to rent a size 4R, but added an extra 2R just in case and ended up wearing the 2. The length wasn't as long as I thought it was going to be but it looked just fine. The complements never stopped and I had a blast in this dress!

All the compliments I received while wearing this dress definitely made it worth it, especialy when I paid much less to wear this dress than many of the people I was surrounded by paid for theirs!

I love this dress - it is definitely a 10! The rouching at the waist helps to conceal any bulges, and the sleeves are great if you are uncomfortable showing your arms. The back is gorgeous - the material is gathered into a knot just under your rear, and the material flows downward into a small pool train. A very elegant look! I wore it with the Badgley Mischka Crystal Envy necklace - the perfect accessory!

Beautiful material, and very comfortable! I had rented the Belle of the Ball gown before, this one fit exactly like it. The sequins didn't bother me - the dress isn't overly heavy, and didn't feel scratchy despite dancing a lot that night.
