Very elegant and beautifully colored
This dress was perfect for senior prom! The top was too big and pretty low cut, but I was already expecting this. The slit was also high, but like the top, this was easy to fix with the fashion tape and pins. The dress was still a little long for me even with four inch heels, but overall a terrific dress. The back was also really elegant and would flow nicely when I walked. The color photographs perfectly, and I got many compliments throughout the night.

The perfect mother of the bride gown!
Dress tape was a requirement. The gown fit so perfectly it looked like it was made for me. I received many comments on the gown perfectly paired with the Kate Spade necklace. Thank you RTR for making my experience wonderful. I will rent again!

I got a lot of complements on this dress!!
I wore this for my boyfriend's fraternity formal which also happened to be on my birthday. I have a booty so it was a bit snug in the hips. The top fit loosely even though I am not small chested. I would suggest sizing for your hips and use fashion tape for the top. Overall I loved the dress though!

So glamorous!
It's dress is super formal. A little too formal for cocktail attire wedding I attended, but my date was in a tux, and it was so pretty, I didn't mind being over-dressed! I went with the size two, because the top has a lot of room, and my 34DD fillled it out a little better than the 4. I still had to use the provided fashion tape to keep it from gaping! The 2 was a little hard to zip over my rib cage, but I often have that difficulty as my ribs do stick out disproportionately, but the dress stretched within a few minutes, and I was not uncomfortable at all. I did order the long thinking I would wear taller shoes, but it was still too long. I definitely would go with the regular length next time, despite wearing heels.

A Sapphire Stunner
I attended a Ball at a winery where every woman was wearing a blue evening gown. The theme was sapphire so you could imagine my concern that there would be a few repeats. Out of the hundreds of blue gowns, I never saw this one. It is a beautiful fabric, a stunning bright sapphire blue. My normal size is now a 4 (my profile is not updating for some reason) and I am 129 lbs and 5'8'. The only slight trouble I had was that I am long waisted and the shaping darts were for someone with a shorter torso (noticeable only in the back) . It seems that I was the only one to notice this, though, so that is what matters, right? I also loved the way this gown flowed when you walk. It looks like you are floating. I loved this dress!

Didn't Wear It!
I go back and forth at times between size 14 and 16 in dresses, depending on the fit. I got the 14L. Unfortunately, this dress was on the smaller side of the spectrum and I couldn't close it towards the top. I'm quite busty (38G) so while I was disappointed, I knew it was a probability.

So comfortable, flattering and appropriate for my boyfriends West Point graduation dinner!
Sadly, I made a mistake in my shipping address but RTR called me personally and fixed it! The dress arrived just in the nick of time and I felt awesome! All it needed was a quick steaming and it fell perfectly. I loved this dress so much I didn't want to return it!

2013 Presidential Inauguration
I love that RTR provides you with a 2nd size for free. I ordered this gown to wear at the Inaugural Ball this year and requested the 2L & 4L. While the 2 fit perfectly, the length wasn't to my liking. I am 5'9" and I wore 3 inch heels. I decided to try the 4 to see if the larger size would give me more length and it was perfect. I had a great time that evening and I looked fabulous while doing it.Thanks RTR!!!!

Beautiful dress but slightly big
The dress is a beautiful color, and I have rented from rtr before and most dresses run true to size. This one was rather big, even in the bust and I wear a 32D. The dress came in in good condition, and the color was beautiful. Just wish it clinged to the body better.

Walking in and owning the room in this dress!
This dress is so unbelievably beautiful. It really does flow like that when you walk, truly a stunning piece. I received so many compliments (and am still hearing from people about it!) that night. I wore this for a NYE black tie/cocktail affair, and just had a blast. So for the petite girls like me: I had to use lingerie tape to hold it down. I opted not to wear a bra because it showed way too easily. Instead, I just double taped the dress down (seriously, this lingerie tape I used is like industrial strength, it's Braza flash tape), and a friend helped me do this cute little twist thing in the front, also secured with the tape. This helped tighten everything up as I'm very small busted. I found the straps fell a few times during the night but that was okay. In terms of length - even with my 5" Louboutin's I found myself nervous about snagging it and ripping this beauty of a gown. Luckily no accidents, but it's definitely a challenge. If you can, use temporary hem tape to bring up the back. Otherwise, this is a truly gorgeous gown and will make you the center of attention. The color is true to the photo and just looks even more amazing in person. Can you tell I loved this dress?

Beautiful
This dress is truly gorgeous. The only issue I had with it was the slit, which ran a little high. Normally it wouldn't bother me, but as we were going to a military ball, I felt it was a little inappropriate. Other than that it fit very true to size, and I didn't need to wear a bra with it which was a good thing, because I did have a bra that would have worked. I will probably rent this dress again for an event that is not so conservative because I was pretty bummed not to be able to wear it.

I ended up wearing a beautiful black dress RTR sent and was amazing!
RTR sent me this because the day before my event they called to say they didn't have my size in the dress I had rented for my event:( I am small so this dress was way too much material for my body and I didn't wear it.

Very beautiful!
I wore this dress for a ball. It was very beautiful, but be aware that the slit can be very revealing! It was a little hard to get in and out of the car. Also, the 2l was just long enough with relatively short heels, so probably better for shorter girls. Also its very low cut, so probably works best for someone with a larger chest to fill it out! I probably could have worn a four, but it was unavailable

Beautiful!
The color of this dress is much more royal blue than periwinkle (as on the model). It's beautiful and so flattering. The neckline was a little droopy for me, but fashion tape easily fixed that. I wore four-inch heels and the dress still dragged a teensy bit, but it wasn't a problem. Easy to dance in, thanks to the high slit. It flowed beautifully as I walked! Very flattering waistline.

Fit well - I was worried about the top being too big but it held it's own. The front slit was sexy w/walking without being uncomfortable. Overall gorgeous dress!

The color is stunning and the fit was true to size
Fit was perfect, color amazing blue, super faltering. It was a bit to long (the regular wasn't available), and when I sat down the split opened all the way. That was a bit annoying. The dress will fly open when you walk also so be careful. Loved this dress!

Fabulous!
This truly is a fabulous dress! Low cut neck, high cut opening; Very sultry. My beef with the dress is more that it didn't stay in place well. It just really lacks structure. And by that, I mean it has none at all. That being said, if one was truly invested in sticky bras and double sided tape, they could definitely make it work! I am not disappointed by it... but it is the only RTR experience I have had where I wish I would have gotten something else.

The dress exceeded my expectations. It was stunning and the surprise jewelry was perfect!
The dress fit perfectly and even when I was a little worried having a smaller chest, it came with tape- what a brilliant surprise! I couldn't have been more impressed with the dress, delivery, packaging and surprise jewelry. I would absolutely rent again and I recommend it to everyone I know. Thank you for an unforgettable event!

The way I felt in the dress, the compliments I received from my husband and friends, and what a wonderful memory I had.
I absolutely loved this dress. Wish I could have kept it. I wore it for the Annual Margarita Ball here in Dallas. I received complements all night. I recommend getting the long if you are 5'7 or above. Also I wore the 6 long but the 4 fit better except for the length. I'd say it runs pretty true to size as I regularly wear a 4.

This was the first time I rented from RTR and I was pleasantly surprised. I had a few different dealings with them in trying to make sure my order was correct. The thing that impressed me the most was when I received a call from stylist Emily a week in advance of my dress arriving to check to see if I had any questions. Excellent customer service! I've already placed my order for my next dress!
I rented this dress for a post-dance competition party. I knew that the "competition" would be stiff in terms of fashionable dresses. This dress definitely scored perfect scores! The fit was excellent in every aspect. I did use the fashion tape just to make sure of no mishaps. This dress made me feel special. All eyes were on me and the dress. I loved it!

I received so many compliments of how sophisticated yet sexy i looked. My favorite comment was that I looked as if I belonged on the red carpet. The V is very deep as you can see but in a completely classy way.
I wore this dress to my sororities formal and loved it! I got so many compliments on how gorgeous i looked in it. The color photographs AMAZINGLY the top was a bit big and i am a 32 DD the fashion tape was a must for sure. I would have worn the 2L but it fit just a bit too snug on the hips. This is a very mature dress so if I wouldn't recommend it to younger girls. I loved the whole experience of rent the runway, they were so helpful throughout even when i needed to change my sizes after i had ordered them.

The color!
I wore this dress for a prom I went to and absolutely loved it! It was originally my back up dress, but it was too pretty to pass up. I rented sizes 2L and 4L. The 4 fit perfectly in the hips but was way too big and low for my small chest (the bottom of the sternum was showing). The 2 was a bit snug in the hips but fit perfectly on top. I wore a stick-on bra and secured everything with fashion tape. The dress was long, only because i decided last minute to wear sandals. If I had worn 3-4 in heels it would've been perfectly. I got so many compliments all night and the dress also photographs really well. The slit is revealing when you walk, but very tasteful and pretty. This dress is beautiful and different. I would certainly rent it again!

My fiancé and his sisters loved this dress. I felt like the belle of the ball!
Sleek and sexy! I used a stick-on bra and taped the bustline down to avoid any unwanted slips while wearing this dress. The front slit is sexy but not overly provocative. Everyone loved this dress. I paired it with the Kenneth Jay Lane Gold Shadow Bib Necklace.

Beautiful color, comfortable, loose in the bust.
The dress is a really beautiful color. The loose style makes it easy to move around and dance. I definitely needed to tape the dress together in the cleavage area: it fell down enough to be very uncomfortable without it. Slit could be quite revealing when sitting down.

Top is a little loose, but a couple safety pins make this a killer dress!
The dress came a day early and it comes with a prepaid return envelope that fits in a USPS postal box, so RTR is an AWESOME and convenient service if you have never used it before. As for this dress, the top is really loose and tries to show WAY more cleavage than many would find suitable (and trust me, I love cleavage!). I experimented with a couple safety pins on the inside flaps and it worked pretty well. Everything else about the dress is stunning. It is flowy when you walk, it shows off your legs and heels, and the color is eye catching and beautiful. Highly recommended dress!

I am also pear shaped and normally wear a 6, depending if the dress is too tight in the thighs, was it clingy in those areas? How forgiving is the dress

Nothing really.
The top is very very large. It was so big that fashion tape couldn't even keep it up. I had to make shift tie it in the back with a sash that I just happened to have that was the same color. I definitely could have worn the 2L in it, but then- the top was still so large that I'm not even sure that the 2 would have fit properly. It's a gorgeous dress, but you need a large bust for it to fit properly. The dress pictured on the model is not how it is going to look on you.

I word this dress to the US Naval Academy's Ring Dance, and it was perfect!
I wanted to wear a dress that was beautiful, elegant, light, and easy to dance in, and this fit the bill! I got so many compliments. The color is marvelous, much more striking in person than in the picture. Fashion tape is a must, and I used a lot of it to keep the dress in place on my chest. The slit in the side remains apparent, even when standing still, and I wore short heels, rather than stilettos, which made the length perfect.

Great color, but the Tall is not tall enough.
Beautiful color. Ordered the 0L and 2L. 0L fit better but not long enough in shoulder straps to accommodate my chest (32C). I wore this to the Grammy's but I wish it had fit better and was more comfortable, If you're under 5'8 I would say go for it!

Love this dress! Had the perfect hair to go with the dress…recieved tons of complements.
I'm a 34B so the top ran a little large for me, but nothing a little double stick tape couldn't take care of. If your a little bigger on top, then you shouldn't have a problem. I normally wear a size 4 or 6 in formal dresses, but a 6 was not available when I ordered, so I decided to get a 2 and 4, glad I did, because the 4 was a little big and the 2 fit great.
