Band at the middle runs very small...

I couldn't get this one zipped up past my waist and I have a fairly slender waist. So, you must be narrow through the middle to make this one work. Absolutely gorgeous dress though!

Loved the sequins- definitely a head turner!

I was definitely disappointed with this rental. I am 5'7" and knew I'd wear 5 inch heels so I ordered the "long" size per the sizing instructions. There was still an extra 3-4 inches of fabric on the ground that I had to hold up all night. Also, had to go up to a size 6 because the zipper on the size 4 was too finicky to get it zipped more than once. Because of the bigger size I was pulling the dress up all night. Even on the size 6 the zipper was pretty screwed up like on the 4.. Such a bummer ! Overall a great experience with RTR, but be warned about the zipper and overall length of this dress when ordering a long!

Couldn't wear it because it was too long.

The dress is very beautiful. The sequins do mean it'll be very heavy. I rented the 0P and the 2P and both were way too long for me even in 4 inch heels. Also the hemline seemed like it was uneven, I'm not sure if this had to do with how often it was worn and the fabric could have been pulled by previous uses. Although it is so pretty, its definitely not petite-girl friendly!

Beautiful dress, but short-waisted

Absolutely gorgeous liquid gold dress, but it is short-waisted for those taller girls. If you're 5'6 or above, DO opt for the longer length.

Wonderful dress for an evening wedding!! Will rent again.

First of all Rent the Runway has AMAZING customer service! I had originally rented a 4R and 6R and both fit way to small. The zipper would not go up due to my breast. The dress itself runs kinda small and long, I'm normally a 4. My dresses arrived the day before I had to catch a flight for the wedding. Of course I panicked when both my dresses didn't fit. I immediately got in contact with a go-go girl stylist and explained my dilemma to her. She was able to overnight me a dress and this time I went with a 8P. The back up dress arrived at 3 pm just in time to catch my 11:30 pm flight! The 8P dress fit like a glove and was just right in length with my 3" heels. The dress itself is comfortable to wear and dance, the only issue I found was the irritation under my arms from the sequence. I was complimented on my dress throughout the wedding and stood out in a crowed of black and navy dresses. The bride herself was fascinated with my dress and asked where she could get one herself! I highly recommend this dress to anyone that wants to stand out and feel glamorous because I will guarantee you that you will be a show stopper!!

This dress was a HIT!

I received an award and after my acceptance almost every woman came up and complimented my dress! It runs snug on the ribs so if you have any boobs or big ribs like me get the size up. Hard to zip past the waist band, but stick with it. It was to the floor and then some with my 4in heel so opt for the higher shoe when you wear.

Didn't think I would like this dress as much as I did! Everyone in our wedding party looked amazing!

The zipper was tricky...took my husband to get it up. The dress is very long as well.

I wasn't the smallest, or the most curvy but ALL EYES WERE ON ME!!!

I wore this beautiful dress to a scholarship pageant and got 1st place! The zipper is tricky and since I have a large bust I had to throw on a fur caplet to not poke anyone's eye out. It came EARLIER than it was supposed to! It barely hits the floor so I'd definitely get it longer if you want the dramatic look. Overall it was a beautiful dress, sequins didn't itch despite the multitude. Would definitely rent again. It was a successful first time RTR experience for me.

Felt like a princess!!! I love this dress!!!

I ordered a size 2 and 4. and normally I'm a size 4 but it was way too small. I called rent the runway after receiving my package and they sent me a size 6 and 8 right away. Their service is fantastic! They had it out the next day, I was impressed! It was pretty heavy so when I dance I had to keep pulling it up. But other than that I loved it!

Totally worth the rent!

Loved the look. The dress was gorgeous and I got a ton of compliments but it was itchy and had a bit of trouble with the zipper, not to mention it was too short. I had to wear flats instead of heels even with the larger dress size.

This dress was amazing!! I had so many compliments throughout the night.

I was a little skeptical about the length of the dress. Being 5'9, I figured it would have been a little short with heels. I was able to wear 3 1/2" heels and the length was perfect. I will definitely be renting from RTR again.

Too tight around the bodice, uncomfortable material, very heavy and unflattering.

It was too heavy and very uncomfortable. Also there seemed to be extra material just below the waist which made my hips appear larger than they actually are. I normally wear a size 4 dress as I wear a 32A cup bra but the bodice was even tight on the 6. I exchanged it for another dress for the event. Rent the Runway was awesome about helping/ exchanging/ shipping, everything. I am totally using them again even though this dress didn't work out for me. It was just a bad choice for my body type and my event.

Disappointed

Neither of the dresses I ordered fit. Beautiful dress, so disappointed I won't be able to wear it for senior ball. I usually wear an 8 in dresses, but I have a large rib cage which results in a wide back size. Realistically I should've bought a 14.

Really tight around my ribcage, and a bit scratchy under my arms. Fine for a night, I guess.

Absolutely Golden

I wore this dress for my senior prom, and I got SO many compliments. But there are definitely some cons. The dress was tight. I ordered at 4P and a 4R, because I didn't know what would work with my heels. With this dress, I learned, size is more important than length. Also, the boning and sequins can be uncomfortable at times. But the dress is stunning. I went to a prom for a different school where only knew a few people, and people told me they loved my dress. For a last minute prom, RTR definitely delivered.

Being able to look flawless without the price tag.

The dress was so gorgeous but it was so much more smaller than I expected it to be. My prom dress was a 2 and this dress was hard to zip up even in a 4. The zipper does get stuck half way up so you will need someone to help you. Also the sequins jab your bodies every move. I could feel the sequins though the lining of the dress. It is also a heavy dress. It's a dress you really have to love to out up with it.

This gorgeous dress and fabulous costumer service.

This dress was absolutely stunning! I felt amazing in it and got so many compliments! It was unlike any other girls dress! I even had one person tell me that my dress was her favorite one that she had seen that night! It's so sparkly and just so gorgeous. I usually wear a size 4R, but ended up wearing the 6 and it was a little tight and a little long.

Gorgeous gown!

I fell in love with this dress! Even though it is sequinced it was very comfortable and easy to dance in. If you're 5'5 or taller and plan to wear heels taller than 4 in. I would recommend getting the dress in long. Also the dress fits tight in the bust area so if you have a larger bust you should go up a size. Everything else about the dress was perfect and I would definitely rent again from RTR :)

The customer service was friendly and efficient!

I wore this for my 1920's themed junior prom. This dress was absolutely gorgeous! It was amazing quality. It was the perfect length with heels on, but kind of a pain to hold up for the night of dancing without them. A few cons were that the empire waist was not forgiving and the zipper took 2 people to zip. Other than that, the dress was beautiful! People are still talking about it!

MAGICAL

I haven't been to the event yet but i tried it on and it looks gorgeous. It is just really really hard to zip on, but once it is zipped it is not moving. It can be a little too long. But it looks just gorgeous on pictures, like gold water. I'm so glad i found RTR, it is gonna be awesome!

I wore this dress to present awards at our company conference on the same stage as the Golden Globes

The dress was absolutely stunning! I found the fit to be a little tight if you have a larger chest and bigger in the hip area. Overall I felt extremely glamorous in the dress and did not want to return it!

Did not work..

I am 5'6 and i got the regular length and both sizes were really short and you could see my toes when I stood up. The size 6 was actually a bit bigger than the 8 which didn't really make sense... The size up wasn't available unfortunately so they sent me a whole new dress and they were very nice about it I just wish that one would have worked out.

BEAUTIFUL DRESS!! But it was too small. I had to send. Both the 6 and 8 back.

I plan to rent later this year and just get larger sizes. It's a GORGEOUS dress but my 36DD's weren't having it! I couldn't zip the 8 even when I put on my Ardyss cincher! I look forward to wearing it later this fall.

This dress was long enough to wear with heels (I'm 5'10), however, it wouldn't zip up past by bust. I even ordered a size up like I do with gowns because I usually need the extra bust room but it didn't work out. it was gorg though!

gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous!!

i loved this dress! the only downfall I had was that I usually fit in anything from a 6-8 but this dress would not zip up over my chest! I have a large chest (34dd) and if you are larger in the chest area I suggest sizing up!! other than that it is gorgeous and I received so many compliments!

This dress is beautiful but looks a little worn and fits a little funny.

I felt like a disco ball- the dress is beautiful but I felt a bit "hippy" wearing it. I mean hippy in that it emphasized my hips. I got a lot of compliments but it was tough to breath, and the dress was certainly showing a bit of wear and tear, IMO. It was my first RTR experience and I have since rented 2 more times and signed up for "pro" so it was a good enough experience that I keep coming back!

Easy & Glamorous!

I wore this to an Air Force Ball. The dress ran small, I am normally a 6 in dresses. I got a 6p and 4p, chose to wear the 4 and i still had to pull it up throughout the night since my chest is small. But it wasn't too much of a hassle. It's not too heavy or light of material, and it flows beautifully. It worked well wearing platforms, since even the petite size was long for me. It's more of a champagne gold than a yellow gold, but still stands out in a crowd. I felt soooo glamorous haha :) The theme was even Hollywood, and I had no idea until I got there, so it fit the occasion perfectly as well. Smooth sailing with Rent the Runway- first experience, and I loved it! Will definitely be using again for all formal occasions :) <3

Maternity beach photos in Florida

I saw someone on Pinterest wear this dress for their maternity beach photos and knew I had to rent it. I normally wear a size 6- 8 with this designer but....I was 36 weeks pregnant so I picked a size 10 and 12. The top fits tight so I had to go with a 12. Other than that, this dress looks amazing in pictures. Highly recommend

The dress was absolutely beautiful. I got lots of compliments at the red carpet event I went to.

The dress is beautiful and you feel so glamorous. Cons: runs small, I wore the long at was too long; the sequence rubs against arms. Pro's: the RTR team really helped me find my size and quick overnight shipping, the dress was absolutely beautiful! So worth it!

There was no time for insecurities, I was being complimented all night.

I ordered the 8 and the 10 thinking it would be similar to my pant size and I was sorely mistaken as gowns are clearly sized differently. I ended up having the 12 overnighted to me which without a bra (I'm a 36 C/D) fit. That was my only issue which was my own ignorance. The dress was STUNNING, everyone kept saying I looked like Marilyn Monroe. I was stopped by strangers and friends alike that said I had the best dress at the entire event. Looooved it!

Sparkly!!

This dress is awesome! I received so many compliments because it really stands out. The only con is that the zipper in the back is very tough to zip. I had to get some help zipping it (the dress wasn't too small, I'm not sure why the zipper was so stiff). FYI- For short girls like me, even this petite size is a tad long. I had about an inch dragging on the floor and I wore my highest heels (about 4 inches). Overall though, it's a fun dress to wear to a formal event if you aren't afraid to shine.

Beautiful gown, the petite was too small for me

The gown is beautiful. I ordered a 4P and 6P because I am 5'3" and normally wear a 6. I ordered the 4P because I have a small chest and thought that I might need to go smaller for the chest area. Well, I couldn't zip the 6P all the way up through the ribs area! I wear a 36B so maybe a 36 is too big for the petite.

Got so many compliments!

It was a little snug in the rid cage area and the zipper was hard to work with over the hump of fabric, but didn't have anything to do with the size. I got so many compliments on it but still felt like the fitted upper part made my stomach/hips look big. Regardless, it's a beautiful dress for a special occasion but I would definitely recommend going up a size.
