Gorgeous color!
This is a beautiful dress, but is tricky to movbe in. The front is cut very high, and I had a hard time sitting down without showing too much. The color is very pretty though- just be careful when you sit!

Perfect wedding dress.
Wore this to a destination wedding in Mexico. The color was stunning and so was the material. If you have big ribs it may be a little snug as it was for me but it still fit. The only downside was you need incredibly strong double-stick tape to make sure your bra doesn't show or worse (if you decide to skip the bra). Since I was in Mexico and dancing the night away... the sweat was not helpful with my sub par double stick and I ended up changing later in the evening. All in all- gorgeous dress.

Showstopper -- great dress
This dress was absolutely beautiful! I wore it to an awards show where my boyfriend ended up proposing to me. The only issue I had with the dress was the fit on top -- I had to use tape and safety pins to keep everything in place and not flash anyone. Loved it!

Beautiful Color but Well Worn
The color of this dress is incredible. You can see it in the uploaded photos- and I really wanted to wear it for the event I attended, however, I chose to wear my other rental option for 2 reasons. First, it was 102 degrees and I didn't want to sweat through the thinner unlined silk of the gown. Second, the fabric of the rental I received was obviously worn. The side seams rippled and it was going to need a lot of steaming to attempt to lay right. It's a gorgeous, MATURE dress, perfect for a cooler (less sweaty) day. I rented a 2L and it fit perfectly.

elegant dress for an elegant affair
This dress is such a gorgeous color in person and feels great on. My only issue was that even with ridiculous heels, it was a bit too long to break it down on the dance floor without the worry of face~planting. The cut isn't as low as the photo looks, so you can wear it to a formal wedding as I did. It does run large, so go a size down if possible

Slinky
This dress has a great color, fits true to size, and flows nicely. Great for a wedding! However, I think that the one I wore might have been missing a stitch to keep the front together (the 8 had it but the 10 didn't), so I had to tape it. A liiiitle revealing with the low front and high slit when sitting, but that's not always bad!

Loved this dress! So did everyone else!
I wore this dress for my highschool's pageant, and it was perfect! The color and fit were both amazing! The way it moved was great. And I'm tall so sometimes I have issues with length, but I wore 3 inch heels and it was still touching the floor. No complaints, though I did have to use a little tape to close up the top because I'm not very big up there!

Stunning gown
I rented this dress for a black tie wedding and so many guests commented on how gorgeous my dress was. The dress was a little bit in the chest area for me, large in the stomach area, and just a tiny bit tight in the thigh area. The slit doesn't actually show unless you purposely attempt to hold an "Angelina Jolie" like pose. The color an style of the dress make the person stand out from the crowd.

The color is breath-taking and fit gorgeous
I wore this dress to the Emmy awards and it fit right in with all the glamourous gowns there. The Long is very Long. Even with 5" heels there was much length left - had to tape the hem a couple inches. I have a full bra with a very low connector in the front and that wes perfect for undergarment. It's so flowing, no Spanx required! I did wear a short slip though - with the slit so high sitting meant moments of brief exposure - so the slip covered me as I adjusted. Would definitely rent again

The dress was very comfortable! The slit in the leg is very trendy.
The bust part is a bit awkward. The top is not fitted so in certain photos, the lighting and shadows can do unflattering things to the top. I think this dress is better for bigger busted people. Overall, the dress was very pretty and comfortable.

At 5'4 and 110lbs, the 0R was a good length with heels on but was still too big! I ended up not wearing it.

I rented this for a wedding the slit was beautiful but the bust area was too small, and lacked support. Not for bust woman like myself.

Perfection in royal blue!
The color is fabulous. I still had some summer tan so it made my skin look gorgeous! I ordered the 0R and the 2R and I ended up wearing the 2R because it made it look more conservative up top (it was a Catholic wedding). The dress was very comfortable to move around and super forgiving in the mid-section, no problem indulging in all the wonderful dinner my friend served. I wore them with BCBG gold sandals and the Kate Spade bib necklace (not the one it's featured with, but the one with more turquoise and gold undertones). You will not go wrong with this dress. The only downside is that it arrived a bit wrinkled. I freaked out because I can't press. So, I had to wake up my mom's tailor and asked him to press it for me. He was so kind (as always!!) and I was able to take it to the wedding and look impeccable!!

Beautiful on that tall model, but not on me. It was too long, way too fitted at the waist, and extremely loose at the bust.

Fun Sexy Dress
This is a very fun dress that's a beautiful color The material was a little thinner and shinier than I had expected. It ran true to size however it didn't seem to fit right in the bust. I am very small in the bust and the way it fit was not flattering. I believe this would be a beautiful dress on someone that has more of a bust.

Great customer service
Great dress, very flattering...I got a ton of compliments! I am 5'9, 145 pounds, 36D. I wear a size 8 and ordered the 10 as well. The 8 fit great. Be sure to use fashion tape to keep the chest in place and make it look more like it does on the model. My only complaint which is very minor is that the material is thin and you might think it looks flimsy, but it wears nicely. And spanx are your friend!

Could not wear it. It was a disaster. The dress arrived crumpled up and it was unwearable.
Gaping at the neck line and tight around the hips. Shame it is a beautiful color. Please note, it does not hang like you see in the picture. The dress is very straight.

The dress color was amazing, and the cut was really neat!
The dress was a bit long for my legs @ 5'4", but the short front made it a bit easier to walk. The cut was slightly too big for my frame, and the middle could have used a little something. I'd recommend getting a smaller size

This dress was fantastic
This was my first time using Rent the Runway and I love it, will definitely do it again. So easy. Dress fit like a dream, it was a bit long, I wore 3 inch heels and did ok, no tripping. You def. need the fashion tape. I thought I'd be falling out of it, but it drapes perfectly and wasn't wrinkle. Just a flattering gorgeous dress.

I ordered this as my first pick but since I had a back procedure that left me in bed and in pain I could not attend the function. I did have my sweet husband help me try it on and it looked great. I think I will rent it for an event real soon.

Beautiful color, gorgeous dress!
This is a gorgeous dress! The color is spectacular. Like others have said, you will most likely need the Hollywood tape for the top, because it does tend to gape. It runs fitted in the hip area, so for me, it was a little tight. Unfortunately, there wasn't enough time to get a larger size sent out, so I wore a pair of Spanx and away I went! This was actually my back-up dress, but my date preferred the silkiness of this material vs the sequined feel of my first choice dress. Also, I think with the fit of the dress, it caused the back seam to shift - constantly - so the little tag/material gathered section underneath the zipper would end up over my right cheek all night. Luckily, after a few drinks, I didn't even care anymore. All in all, it's a gorgeous gown, very glamorous...it probably would have been pefect if I could have gotten the size 12!

Gorgeous color, but didn't fit.
Picked this as my back up dress for a formal wedding. Ending up being too tight on the hips, causing the slit to start very high, and I was unable to sit down comfortably it in. It did however fit my bust - and RTR includes fashion tape so you can adjust the bust slit as needed. Gorgeous dress though - wish it worked!

So, this dress was a disaster for me. The color was gorgeous but it was gigantic in the boobs. I couldn't fill it up if I tried and it was VERY low cut.

Lovely
When it first arrived, I initially was worried that it would be too small, but was able to zip it on the night of the event. I have a broad rib cage and it was quite snug, but held up beautifully. This photo was before the car ride, and photos from the event show that it did wrinkle quite a bit from sitting in the car. Overall I was really satisfied and felt like I looked great all night. Thank you RTR!

Gorgeous color and gorgeous dress!
I will tell you, this dress runs large on the top. I'm a 34 B and needed fashion tape galore! Also, I'm 5'4" and the long was long! I should have gone with the regular length, but it was unavailable. This was my back-up dress, so I didn't end up going with it, but I still loved it.

Absolutely stunning gown!
I wore this to a Bal Masque and this gown was originally my backup dress. It is gorgeous on, and the photos really don't do the color any justice... I tried it on and my husband's jaw DROPPED, lol! My only regret (albeit minor) was that I didn't order the long- I'm 5'5 and wore four inch heels and it barely grazed the floor. That being said, it was much easier to walk and dance in with a little less length:) Definitely invest in some fashion tape as the top is plunging- though I was able to wear a regular strapless bra with it. I paired it with a Stella & Dot pearl necklace, kid opera gloves, and a vintage fur jacket. Sorry for the cruddy pictures :) This was my first time using RTR and I will definitely be back!

Pretty but not long enough
I rented this dress as a back-up dress and did not end up wearing it to my event. Mainly because since I am almost 5'8" the 6R was too short when I put my heels on. However, it was very pretty on. I would have had to have used some serious fashion tape for the top of the dress but the color was amazing. My favorite thing about the dress was the slit as you walked! Stunning!

Dress was pretty revealing.
The dress ran quite large. The overall dress was very loose (couldve taken several inches out) . The slit was very high, especially when sitting down. In addition, many of the reviews talked about the long length of the dress, as a result I got 3" heels which made the dress too short. The dress material was pretty and light, but was also quite worn and the bottom was dirty. Probably not worth the money renting it.

It was pretty, but too big.
I think it actually runs true to size but, I'd been working out (surprise) and lost a few inches so it was too big. A 2 would have been perfect. The color was amazing and I loved the hide away slit.

Too big in the bust, too small around the ribs.
I wore the dress to the opera and my husband kept telling me beautiful I looked, but I was uncomfortable. My bust is large (dd cups), but I couldn't fill the top out if my life depended on it. I needed two cutlets for each breast and a push up bra to begin to fill in the cups. Oddly, the dress fit too tight through the rib cage. The slit gives the dress beautiful movement when you walk, but wear panties or sitting could become a peep show.

Gorgeous color and great fit! Made me feel glamorous!
This dress fit great, it ran a little large on top. Make sure to have plenty of double stick tape for the bust. It's a low cut, but with enough tape to make sure nothing slipped out place it's incredibly flattering. I would definitely rent this dress again!

Very easy and convenient!
I originally ordered the dress in a size 6, but got a back up in size 4. The 4 ended up fitting the best. The bust was pretty big and needed to be pinned. Overall, the dress was great and very easy and convenient.
