This was an amazing dress - I received countless complements all night!
Great dress for a formal affair. The only con I have is that since it's sequin dress, my arms got a little irritated from rubbing up against the sequins all night. I usually wear a size 8, but the size 6 fit great. The length was a little long but once I put my heels on, the dress only slightly dragged on the ground. I definitely recommend investing in fashion tap if you want to control the "V" neckline.

My dress came right on time.
I ordered both the 8R and the 8L (as I tried the dress on in a pop-up showroom for Inauguration). I'm 5'6" and the regular was entirely too short without shoes on. The long fit perfectly. The only issue was the zipper was near impossible to get up (and not because of the size of the dress). I had to have a girlfriend zip me into dress and it took awhile.

Amazing dress for a Black Tie event, comfortable all night, lots of compliments!
Awesome dress, highly recommended. I rented this for a James Bond themed Gala black tie event. I had at least 5 people compliment me on the beautiful dress. I had originally ordered the 14R but it was slightly too small, phoned RTR and they overnighted me a 16R. Thanks for the wonderful service RTR. I am only 5"3" and my heels were not very high (2.5")so I didn't find this dress very long as it was just long enough on me. The sequins scratched slightly under the arms but nothing to worry about. This dress is very substantially made and is slightly stretchy, very forgiving and hangs well due to the weight of the fabric. The glitter of the sequins I found to be just right. I would absolutely rent this again.

Other women were wearing this dress in gold, but in the crowd of 1000 I was the only one in black!
The length was great with some 2-inch heels (I'm 5'0") and the dress was really comfortable. The waist hit me around my ribs and was snug when I was putting on the dress but fit fine as I wore it (and because it hit high, I didn't feel squished after eating!). The v-back is about bra strap level on me, so I wore a black bra and it all worked out great. The bust is definitely full -- I wear a 30DD (or 32D when the dropdown menu won't allow me to put my real size in!) -- so those without large boobs may want to use the hollywood tape. It fit me just right, though, and I got compliments from my friends all night!

Very elegant dress for black tie event.
I agree that it is one the shorter side so I ordered the L and it was perfect with 3.5 inch heels. The zipper is in fact difficult to close but manageable. The front is too low cut and it had to be fixed with hollywood tape and then it was fine. It was my first RTR experience and I am satisfied as I have no time for shopping with a baby and full time career. I think that this is a very glamourous dress and super easy to wear.

Perfect classic dress for a black tie gala
I normally wear a 6 or 8, but the 6 fit better. I am 5'8 so the 6L was perfect with four inch heels. This dress felt very classic and flattering. I got a lot of compliments of the dress. The dress was perfect, not too flashy but very classic and special. I highly recommend it!

Beautiful dress. Loved it. It made me feel sexy but it wasn't revealing. Perfect.
My daughter and I both rented from Rent The Runway for the first time and we were both very satisfied. The dresses were both exactly what we were hoping that they would be, and at an event (Mardi Gras Extravaganza) with over 15,000 people I didn't see anyone else with a dresses like ours. The fit was great and comfortable, and love that this dress is appropriate for practically every age group.

Glitzy! Felt super glam in this dress.
The length was perfect, but a little too loose in the bust. I had to use a fair amount of double-sided tape to hold everything in place. (I'm a 36B). Otherwise, a wonderful dress. I'm 5'6", athletic build at 148lbs and the size 8 fit perfectly. Couldn't get over RTR's service!! Can't wait to rent again.

RTR ladies! The dress was very well-made and made me feel absolutely incredible all night.
I received a flood of compliments all night. I'm 6'0'', have a 36DD bust, and am in between sizes 6 and 8 and read that the dress ran a little large, so ordered the size 6 and 8. The size 6 fit perfectly and the dress wasn't too tight or loose in the bust. I did need 2 fasteners for the back of it since the top of my bra was peeking up in the back, but wore a normal bra and it never showed in the front. The v-neck was deep but not immodest for this type of event. A wonderful dress for a ball!

Best dressed couple at the entire Masquerade Charity Ball...fact.
I really loved this dress, the only downside was that it was not long enough. The 4L fit, but I went with the 6L because it gave me just a little more length. They felt very similar. I had to wear shoes that were only 2 inches tall, when most of my shoes and most fashionable shoes out there are around 4 inches.This is something that I am used to dealing with, which is why avoid black tie events. I wish I had a full length version but the photographer only got us from the waist up. The sequin was okay, a few strings stuck in it, I assume from previous renters since the colors didn't match up. It also scratched under my arms a little bit, nothing too big. Overall, I received a TON of compliments on it. Would rent again, now that I own 2 inch heels:-)

This dress is BEAUTIFUL!! Hugs you in on all the right curves. I got compliments the entire night!
The zipper was a little rough to pull up and not because of size but i think because it has been worn too many times. Other than that this dress is flawless.

Loved how glamorous this dress is! It runs a little large and like others said, the zipper is really awful. It fit but it took two of us to get the thing zipped!

This was my first rental and I am SOLD!
I was thrilled to get my first rental. It was great to get 2 sizes and the X-tra dress for $25 was a great offer. The dresses arrived and I felt like a little girl playing dress up. I can't wait for my next rental. It was fast and easy. I returned my dress to the mailbox the same night. The next morning when I woke up, I felt like Cinderella...my beautiful dress was gone back to RTR but I had wonderful memories of an evening where I... was the Belle of the Ball.

Received compliments all night - including you look like a glam goddess :)
Dress fit great, and was very flattering. Length was perfect, ordered the L to ensure that I could wear my 4" heels, and that worked out well. Straps on the dress could have been a smidgen tighter... but wasn't an issue. Overall, it was a beautiful dress and was so lucky to have it for the event.

Beautiful
This gown was more beautiful in person. It fit wonderfully, and the fabric does have a little stretch to it. The length was perfect (I'm 5'5"), and I wore a 2 inch heel. The dress just skimmed the top of my shoe, so no dragging on the ground. I was a little worried about the sequins rubbing on my underarms, but I didn't have any issues. It was also great to be able to wear a normal bra with this dress. I would rent this same dress again!

I ordered this dress in a 0L and 0R. I am 5'7" and the long was way too long even with heels on. The regular was perfect, but I had to wear flat shoes. Other than that, this dress is beautifully made!

Absolutely Perfect! So comfortable!!
I have a large chest, so I was worried about having enough coverage, but it fit perfectly! I had to tack it closed a little higher than the natural v-neck so my bra wouldn't show, but no one could even tell. It was so comfortable and easy to move in. I could wear my normal bra which was a huge plus for me. I am extremely happy with this dress and the entire process of renting the dress. I was in Las Vegas for the ACM Awards and luckily they send you a thin UPS envelope so it's easy to pack the envelope in your luggage and then I just dropped it off at a UPS drop off and I was done. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thank you!

Classy and Sexy at the same time
The dress ran a little small on me but I was able to fit into it beautifully. I would order a 4P next time. I did a dramatic smoky eye with this dress and it looked amazing. If you have wide hips and a large bust I think this dress does wonders for hiding imperfections. Despite wearing a black dress, I received so many complements.

Absolutely perfect for a night time, formal event!
This dress was great for a formal, outdoor event, It wasn't too heavy and hugged in all of the right places. It does run big though (2L was almost too big in the chest/shoulders), so definitely order down a size. Also, the ruching makes you look a little hip heavy and the "long" is definitely long! I'm 5'7" and with 3" heels I was still walking all over it. All in all though, it was super comfortable and made me feel like a princess. Absolutely would recommend it!

Classy and Glamorous
Rented this gown last minute for a museum gala and was satisfied with my choice. With 3 1/2 inch heels, the length was perfect. I have a small frame and loved that the dress gave the illusion of a curvier figure. My only quarrel with the gown was the low cut of the neck, which would not have been an issue had I had the time to put in a small stitch. Safety pin to the rescue! This was my first rental, and I will definitely be using RTR again.

Perfect dress for our school Masquerade Gala!
Dramatic, beautiful and comfortable dress! The fit is perfect! Sexy but not too revealing. I wore my regular black bra which was very convenient. The length was perfect with 3" heels. The zipper sticks so I had to get my husband to help and it took a few minutes. Other than that, it was great and I would recommend this dress!

Stunning and Elegant
I love this gown! My husband said I looked like a million bucks! I felt like two million. It is extremely flattering and very comfortable. The fabric is stretchy but not clingy because of the sequins. The V neck plunges a bit too much for my comfort, so I put in a loose stitch that I easily removed after the wedding. I felt a bit overdressed for a Sunday afternoon-into-evening wedding, but the magnificence and elegance of the dress overcame my hesitation. This is a fabulous dress. Highly recommend!

This gown is fun to wear but the neck line is low. Depite the sequins, it is not heavy on your body.
Perfect for a black tie event. Used Nu bra so no concerns about V neck. Length works with 3-4 inch heel. Comfortable and elegant.

Too short!
Gorgeous gown, but since it was my first time renting, I chose the wrong size. I'm 5'2" and I thought the Petite sizes would work for me, and they do- if i wore flats. Fortunately the other dress I rented fit perfectly, and its length was Regular. Lesson learned!

Great dress for black tie!
I'm 5'7" about 118 lbs and the 2L fit like a dream. I'm 34 C so the top was a tad tight when zippering but it worked. The skirt was a little "blousy" but, overall, I loved it and got lots of compliments on the dress. Had to steam it as it was pretty wrinkled when it arrived.

Elegant, Comfortable, Classic-a perfect dress for any black tie event!
I had planned to wear a dress hanging in my closet for a black tie work event, but at the last moment decided to rent this dress. This was my first Rent the Runway experience, and the entire process was flawless. I am 5'6" and usually wear a 4R but found that the 2R fit better, especially since I have a smaller bust. I do wish the dress was just a tag bit longer, as I wore 3 inch heels, so I may order the 2L the next time around. All in all, it was a great dress to wear to my event. Thank you Rent the Runway!

Worry free fit, but short.
I rented this dress because it seemed like I would not have to worry about it fitting over my tiny top and my larger hip / bottom. I always worry about renting a fitted dress because I usually have to get my gowns altered, and this dress fit the bill. The dress itself is not overwhelmingly spectacular but I needed a dress and it worked for the event. If you are 5'4" or taller and are planning on wearing heels I would order a Long. I rented a Regular and with even low heels there was too much of a gap, so I wore flats. A dress like this looks silly if it doesn't hit the ground. Final note: buy some fashion tape or you will be pulling at the neckline all night in an effort to keep your bra covered.

Order the Long
I ordered the 12R and the 12L as a backup. Glad I did. The 12R fits tighter than the 12L and also barely touches the ground. The 12L enabled me to wear a 3 inch heel. The zipper is very difficult to zip but will work if you just keep working at it. I wore a bra without any problem and had no problem with gaping in the front. The cut of the dress made my hips look even larger than they were.

Stunning.
This is a gorgeous dress. Unfortunately I was unable to wear it because the 6 was not available when I rented. I tried the 4 since some people said it ran big (my normal size but I am currently pregnant) and it was definitely a true 4. It is roomy in the hips but narrow at the rib cage. In the right size it would have been gorgeous and comfortable. The petite length is definitely short. I could have probably worn flats. For 5'2" I would recommend the regular length if you want to wear heels over 1 inch.

I rented this gown for New Year's Eve and it was breathtaking! I was the belle of the ball.
This gown fit pretty true to size; it fit my bust well (I'm a busty girl) and was rather tight 'round the middle, so it helps if you have a waist. I highly recommend this gown!
