Classy and beautiful
Dress was classic and perfect for the occasion. I wore it to a work / industry gala and received a lot of compliments. Even the regular was long and I liked that. This was my emergency back up dress and I was happy with the outcome. I am a busty woman, 36DD, and this dress complimented my chest well. It wasn't too much. It was just right.

The dress was beautiful and I received many compliments on the dress.
The fit was great overall. I did find the dress hard to zip up due to the material. The v in the bust area was really low cut and needed to be pinned, but other than that the length was great and fit was too!

This fits true to size, and is extremely flattering. The lining gives a nice smooth line, creating a beautiful, elegant and finished look.

Great fitting and fun dress for a formal affair!
After reading the reviews, I ordered both the 10R and the 10L. The 10R does run short, so with my heels, I ended up wearing the 10L. Fit was great - very comfortable. I did end up pinning the neckline a little (it was a bit too revealing). The zipper was tough, but I managed with the help of a friend.

Great length, I'm 6' 1". Draped perfectly. Fabulous, well-made material.

I am the exact same measurements as you and am looking into this gown for the weekend. Were you able to wear heels and if so, was the dress the appropriate length?

For bump was a little tight to zip and pretty busty. Did some creative pinning to make my chest somewhat decent.

The quality of the material and beading was gorgeous. It had a subtle but lustrous sparkle.
The long was just a hair too long and using fashion tape in the hem. (It made the fabric buckle). Also, I'm small chested and this would be better on a woman with a more ample chest. Overall, draped nicely, no itch underneath the arms like I had read in other reviews. The only frustration was the zipper, which was hard to close.

felt great in my postpartum body amidst a sea of size 2 WASPs
The dress: It came on time and in perfect condition. I would have ordered the 14R as a back up, but it was already reserved so I got the 10R. both 10 & 12 fit but the 12R was long enough to accommodate my 3" heels. the 10 would have worked for flats. I did not need fashion tape. no sequin arm itch. I received loads of compliments. The way the dress was cut worked well with my postpartum belly, as I didn't want something so flowy as I would look STILL pregnant! my strategy was to divert attention from the bump with an abundance of sequins and cleavage...and it worked. My RTR experience: was fabulous. the reviews were so helpful. My only wish is that I had used their service sooner!!!

We won best dressed couple award!
'Twas a dear friend's 1920's themed wedding celebration. I ordered both the 10L and 12L. I liked the way the 10 fit better so it wore it though it was little short. The 12 just sort of hung on my frame and was a bit long. (I'm normally a 12) I am pretty busty so I'm glad the material made way for the gals. I don't normally dress up bit when I do I like to do it well. This dress did it for me! I got complements all night and my partner and I won the best-dressed couple award!

Not for ladies with hips.
It's super fun and sparkly, but the reusching at the hips was completely unnecessary, and made me look frumpy. Had to return.

Beautiful dress with a classic shape
The dress fit perfectly for a size 6. I did have trouble with the zipper (even when it was on the hanger), but once the dress was on it was so comfortable. I am between 5'3 and 5'4 and felt the 6R was the perfect length with my 3in heels.

I wore this to a MAJOR Dallas fashion event and it was a SMASH!
First of all - I am 6'2" - so there are not many long dresses that work for me. The "fit specialist" at RTR emailed me a list of the dresses that run XLong and would work for me. This dress was perfectly long enough - even with 2" heels (I opted to wear flats for comforts sake, however). This dress is easy to wear - you can wear a regular low cut bra - and a pair of Spanks - and you're good to go. I wore it to a majorly fancy fashion event filled with fashionistas and I felt just like one of the "cool kids!" I got so many compliments. I am pushing 50 and I felt totally appropriate in this - but a younger lady could totally rock this dress and be sexy as hell. I rented the 12 and the 14 and was delighted that the 12 fit. The zipper is a bit tricky - but with patience I always managed to get it up. Young or old - this dress works for anyone. Easy, breezy, beautiful -- you'll feel like a cover girl!

I was grateful for RTR sending me two sizes. I usually wear a 14 and though it fit, i was much more comfortable in the 16. Overall, it was a beautiful dress and wore very well!

So much fun and so many compliments on the dress!
I'm 5'4 and this dress is shorter than I'm used to. Not an issue but did have to be careful about what shoes I wore. The dress is also much bluer than it looks in the picture. I thought it was black in the picture but it's actually a pretty midnight blue.

The dress was fun to wear, and delivery/return couldn't have been easier!
As it said on the web site (very helpful comment!), the dress runs a little large - sending two sizes is GREAT because I actually ended up wearing the smaller one. I agree with other reviewers, the zipper is hard to zip up, so you need someone to help you get dressed, but the dress was very comfortable to wear and I got a lot of compliments on it. I'll definitely use Rent The Runway again!

An extremely comfortable dress, I loved wearing it for the formal occasion.
This is a dress you don't need to worry about wearing any shape wear underneath. There is a little give in the front under the waistband which makes it very comfortable. The V neck is also not too low so you can wear a regular bra. I wore a 4L which was great for my height and 3" heels. The dress material is on the heavier side due to the sequins but not heavy that you feel it through the night.

Compliments all night
I was happy overall as the dress does seem to run true to size. Definitely comfortable... My only issue was despite being a 36D the top was still large, mostly because I believe it had been stretched out previously. I did use fashion tape and wore a great bra, but still felt it was not proportional to the rest of the dress.

Bump-friendly! Perfect for a formal affair.
At 5'10, the XL length was needed. I wore 2" heels and my feet showed in the front--though I am pretty sure that was caused by my baby bump.

Great dress...after a few fixes
The dress ran small...I'm usually a 10-12 but had to wear a 14. Also- top is very low cut. I wore it to a work event and ended up wearing a top under it to make it appropriate.

Great dress!!
This dress was amazing, and so great and flattering for my body type. I ended up in the 12 because the 10 was sold out. It was a little too big, then 10 would have been perfect. Its definitely a great dress for a busty girl, I needed to fashion tape the dress to my bra to keep it up. It was comfortable and I felt great in it!

The night was a constant stream of compliments - the dress was absolutely glamorous & stunning.
Let me describe my body I'm of average build. My hips are a wide (as a Latina). However, this dress accentuated all the best parts and slimmed me down drastically. I would highly recommend this dress to anyone who wants to make an impression, you surely will not be missed. I apologize the pictures didn't capture the entire dress but I assure you it was stunning.

This dress was stunning!
I rented this dress for a 1920's Great Gatsby themed wedding and it fit the bill perfectly. I originally ordered the 4L and 2L as many reviews said that this dress ran short and large, but I really needed the 4R as the 4L was too long even with my tallest heels and the 2L was too tight. Rent the Runway overnighted the 4R and it was simply stunning. The 4R with 3" heels perfectly skimmed the floor without billowing. I received compliments all night and was exteremely happy with my decision. The dress fit true to size and was very comfortable to wear, with the exception of a few scratches on my arms due to the sequins. The price we pay for beauty, right? I did need to purchase some fashion tape to keep the deep V in place, but that was more for personal preference than complete necessity. I'm pretty busty (30F), and the top was very comfortable - not tight at all. If you want and understated show stopper, this one is for you!

How many compliments that I received
The rental process is as easy as RTR states that it is. Two dresses arrived the day before the event an extra dress same style diff size comes with your order. I highly recommend that you take this option. I was so pleased with condition of the dress, it looked brand new. The dress was stunning and it felt great to wear a real designer dress to a black tie event. Men have always been able to rent Tuxedos for their black tie events and for women to be able to rent a dress especially for an annual event where you need a new dress every year this concept is outstanding. The process to return it could not be any easier, the return envelopes are provided ; all you have to do is put the dress inside, seal the package and take it to a UPS drop box. I don't think that I will ever have to buy a dress again.. Thank you RTR!!

Wasn't thrilled
I needed a dress for a formal gala I attended. I ordered two sizes in this dress. The 10L fit, but was really tight across my chest. I'm glad I had sized up for the 12L. Unfortunately, there was also a lot of fabric at the chest area, and my girls were just hanging out. Thank goodness I remembered to bring tape and pins with me! My fellow busty women, just know that this dress will show loads of cleavage. It wasn't as heavy as I though it would be either. Sequins were falling off. Tall ladies! This is definitely not long enough. With no heels on, the dress hit right above my ankles. This dress didn't look terrible on me, but I didn't feel like a million bucks or anything. I wasn't overwhelmed with the fabulousness of the dress. I did receive many compliments, which was great. I didn't love this dress, but it fit and I wasn't too worried about it since I needed something to wear and didn't have time to get a replacement. I wish I had a picture of this dress that was not blurry or dark. Anyway, I definitely won't order this dress again.

Perfect for a military ball/black tie event
First thing I liked about the dress right off the bat is that it was very comfortable. The fabric stretches and the sequins didn't scratch at all. I was totally comfortable dancing and walking around and the dress looked great. I got so many compliments! I'm glad I ordered the extra long size, I almost got long because I wasn't planning on wearing heels but the XL was just long enough for me in flats (I'm 6' 2"). The dress runs a little large, I ended up wearing the smaller size I ordered. I would definitely rent this dress again!!

I got tons of compliments on my dress!
I had been telling the ladies I work with about RTR so they all knew I would be renting my dress for the military ball. Everyone was impressed and I got many compliments (and several new customers for RTR.) The dress has a Grecian look but is also kind of 1920's in style. It was also comfortable even though it is covered in sequins. I got the 10L and the 12L (as a backup) but ended up wearing the 10L, which was just long enough with my 4 inch heels. The dress is low-cut so you have to be careful if you are bustier like I am, but it was still "classy cleavage." I highly recommend this dress to anyone who likes to wear things other than strapless gowns and who likes a more vintage look.

This dress was amazing!
This dress was stunning! I did have some issues with the dress, but I still came home at the end of the evening wishing I could keep it. The sequence is itchy on the arms. Also it was really long. I ordered the long after reading others reviews, and even in 2' heels it was still dragging on the floor. I normally wear a size 14 dress, because I have large hips, but because of the material even the 12 was a little too big. The only other issue I had was that the dress cut very low. The person who had worn it before me put in two little stitches in thankfully, but I still found it a little too revealing for the event I was attending. Overall, I loved the dress. Everyone else loved the dress. It was a true win. I highly recommend this dress.

The most comfortable, flattering dress that made me feel like a million bucks!
This dress fit true to size for me. I have a larger bust, and wore a push-up bra with it and the top fit perfectly. It was sexy without being overly sexy (and yah for a dress that I could wear a regular bra with!). I wore a 2.5 inch heel and the bottom of the dress was still a little long, but I wanted to save my feet for dancing. I truly loved this dress and was pleasantly surprised that the sequins didn't scratch the back of my arms how some other sequin dresses I've worn to events. I received tons of compliments all night!! I loved my 1st experience with RTR!

Didnt wear - beautiful gown not flattering on me
Im only 5'8 so was surprised that this dress was too short on me with heels. I did notice the tags said "6" and "8" vs "6L" or "8L" so maybe I received the regular instead of the long? Also the way the ruching fell around my hips actually made me look a little wider than I am. I ended up wearing something else.

Va va voom!
This dress has a little stretch as well as draping in front of the waist so it was forgiving for a postpartum pooch. It isn't clingy either and there is texture so it covers any imperfections, though it he sequins make it thick so it is a little bulky. I was able to wear a normal bra with it as well. This dress was very glamorous and I loved it for the black tie event I attended! You definitely need help with the zipper and it took a little patience but we finally got it closed (the hidden zipper and sequins make it tough to close!)

Glitzy gown for the win!
Loved this gown! I wore it to a black tie gala for work. Due to my bust size, and the fact that I was wearing the dress for work, I had to pin the top because the girls wanted to come out and play. I ordered the 2L and the 4L and found that the 4L was just too large around the waist so I wore the 2L even though it was a little snug. I have baby making hips (aka ginormous hips) and they definitely showed through the cut of this dress. Make sure you order the Long if you plan on wearing heels! I am 5'6" and wore 4in heels, and the Long was barely hitting the ground.
