As timeless, elegant, and romantic as it gets!
This dress is *gooooorgeous*. If you are going for something classically elegant, romantic, and a little sexy (think Princess Kate), this is your jam right here. It fit like it was made for me, flowed when I walked, and received tons of compliments all night. I ordered the 8 and the 10, and could have gone either way, but went with the 10 for a little more comfort in the chest area (I am large there). In a sea of sequins and dramatic cut-outs, this dress looked timeless and elegant. And that's how I felt all night, too. TOTALLY Princess Kate!

This dress is beautiful and elegant.
The straps fit a bit big and the dress is long, so if you are a petit, like me, you may need some tall tall heels. The back is beautiful and the front is very tastefully cut. I did order a 4r as well but couldnt wear it because of a rip in the seam. I'm sure it will be fixed, but just goes to show, order a backup.

This dress made me feel glamorous!
This was my first choice dress and it is gorgeous in person! The color is a deep grayish navy blue and the lace has a tiny bit of gold shimmer to it. I would have felt more comfortable in an 8R, but they only had an 8L in stock. It was VERY long on me and I had to wear super high heels so it didn't drag too much. I spent most of the night holding up the dress so I didn't trip, but other people did still step on it and the small train. The top was a tiny bit too big on my chest, but I used a stick-on silicone bra and fashion tape to be safe. Overall, it was very comfortable to wear all evening and I didn't even need to worry about shapewear to hide my mommy tummy!

Very Elegant
This dress is very elegant and received compliments all night long. 8L might have worked better, in the shoulders. but 10L fit perfect around the ribcage. I'm 5' 8" and wore 4 inch heals. The long was perfect. However, part of it's charm is the fact that it trails longer in the back. This sometimes got caught on my heel or stepped on by my husband. It's perfect to look elegant and sophisticated in.

Classically elegant gown!
I ordered a 6R and 4R. I'm 5'5" and have about a 28" waist. The 4R fit, but the 6R was more roomy in the ribs. After wearing the 4R around the house for a while, it relaxed a little (or I had better posture), so I decided to wear the 4R. Oddly enough, the 4R was longer than the 6R, so I had to wear 4" heals to keep from tripping over the dress, which was okay with me. I had no problems with a strapless bra showing in the front, sides or back. On the hanger, you can tell that the dress is starting to wear a little bit, but you couldn't tell while I was wearing it. The zipper did a weird gap thing on my back, but I think it's because I have a sway back. It's a beautiful dress, and I'm so glad I did RTR! It was my first time, and I was pleased with the experience!

Pretty dress but a bit frumpy
This would work for a very conservative event, but other than that it's a bit frumpy. It also runs large. I didn't end up wearing it but it was my backup size anyway.

Lovely dress, received compliments all night!
I'm 5'8 and wore a three inch heel, I ordered the regular only because the longer length wasn't available, but since there was a bit of a train in the back the length wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Just enough so you could see my shoes in the front, and hit the floor in the back. I was able to wear a normal strapless bra with the dress that didn't show in the back. Dress in all lace so be careful with any bracelets that might catch the fabric. I felt confident and beautiful all night, and received so many compliments all night long.

The whole experience of using Rent the Runway was so simple - will definitely be ordering again!
This dress was beautiful! I normally wear a 6, and ordered both a 6 and a 4 to try on. Previous reviews had mentioned this dress ran a little big, but I found it very true to size. The 6 fit like a glove. The length was a little long; even with 2 inch heels the dress dragged. I did step on it a few times, but without issue. It was very flattering, hiding my post baby tummy.

Beautiful dress but did not fit my body type
I did not wear this dress. I'm normally a 4/6 depending on the item and 5'8" so ordered a 4 long based on the recommendations, at the time of my order no alternate sizes were available. The dress was very long, even with 2.5 inch heels I would have been tripping over it. The dress also isn't cut well for smaller chested women. The waist area fit well but I didn't fill out the top so there was some bunching. Beautiful dress, just not made for my body type.

This was my first time renting- I loved it. I wore it to a charity event in DC.
I really liked this dress! The dress was extremely comfortable and in great condition. I loved the intricate details- from a distance, it just looks like a dark blue dress, but up close, the lace has some understated sparkles/ shimmer in it. It was a really fun dress to wear and would be great for any wedding or other formal event. I wore it with silver accessories, which went well with the sparkle in the dress. As others have said, the lace on the bottom did get stuck in my heels a few times, but was not a problem. I also wore low heels with it- I am 5'6'' and it was a good length with low heels but looked too short with my higher heels. (Sorry for the poor photo quality- the room was dark!)

Lovely event for a great cause.
The dress is pretty, and the 6 fit, but the 8 seemed to hang a little better. Based on other reviews, I ordered the long, which was a mistake. In heels I am nearly 5'10" and this dress was still too long to wear. I called customer service, but this dress wasn't available in regular length. The stylist suggested hem tape, which I ended up using, but it was a hassle, both to shorten and then to get the tape off the lace later. Even wearing heels I had to shorten the dress nearly 6 inches. Maybe my 6' nieces could wear this dress, but it's extraordinarily long for most people.

Super comfortable dress.
I will say the dress was beautiful. The length was a little short (and I wore flats), but then I am also tall. The top, even in the 12R was a tad big, and that had been the smaller size I wore that I ordered. That said, this is my first formal dress I rented post-baby, and this was flattering and I received many compliments.

This dress was perfect. I got so many compliments and was extremely comfortable all night long.
This dress fit amazingly. It was so comfortable and moved very well on the dance floor! The lace part is a bit long but was fine if I stood up perfectly straight (which was good for me since I don't have the best posture). It is longer in the back than the front, so I had to pick up the bottom once the night went on to the bar. If the top is tight at all, then it puckers in the back where the zipper is, but I fixed that by not wearing a bra, which I am not used to. It made it even more comfortable though! The 6L fit great with a bra but was way too long while wearing flats (which was my purpose for getting a long dress - to not wear heels).

A gorgeous dress for a black tie wedding
This dress fit me pretty perfectly. The length was just enough for me to wear a 3" heel. The dress is was more blue than the site photo would suggest, and the lace has a little bit of a gold shimmer, but that was just fine with me. It was very comfortable to dance in, and with the higher waist, there is room for expansion post eating. I was really sad to have to return it, I loved it so much.

Wow! Blue lace
This was my backup dress and I'm so happy I got to wear it!!! I felt like fabulous in this dress. It's very easy to wear (any to wear underwear that was comfortable, it was unfortunately that time of the month, but you'd never know it; and you can wear a strapless bra!). Fun to walk in, lace overlay just follows you around with a very subtle train. A bit heavy if you are going to dance; I danced with half of the dress in my hand for over an hour straight, needless to say it got very heavy. Ribbon detail around ribs can feel a bit tight. I would not recommend this dress to anyone with a large rib cage or anyone that has a bit of an upper body pudge, the robin is NOT forgiving and does not stretch!!! I did have a lot of problems going up and down stairs, my heel snagged on the lace, in the back, so many times, I'm surprised I didn't fall flat on my face. I would recommend for a black tie event. There is a bit of an ivory/gold shimmer to the lace that does not appear in image. Photographs well, but can look darker depending on lighting.

The dress was beautiful, fancy, and reasonably modest.
This dress was just what I needed. I was attending a black tie wedding and I'm not a black tie sort of person. To make things more complicated I was supposed to be 14 weeks pregnant at the wedding and had a miscarriage the week before so I REALLY did not want to appear pregnant and I did not own a dress that would disguise things well enough and still look fancy enough for black tie. This dress fit the bill. I usually wear a 12R and under the circumstances I anticipated that size would be correct. I am glad I followed the instructions to size down for the backup dress because I ended up wearing the 10R. The 12 would have worked, but the shoulder straps were a little too long. The 10 was perfect. The dress looked great, made me feel good, and hid the problem area. My only complaint about the dress was that it's a little long in the back and my heels kept getting stuck in the lace. It took me a while to get a knack for holding up the lace and leaving the under layer in place for decency. Overall I would definitely recommend this dress.

A stunning, comfortable dress!
I wore this dress for a black tie wedding in Manhattan. Overall, this is a great dress. It is incredibly flattering and also ridiculously comfortable. I was able to dance all night long! I got so many compliments on the wonderful lace detail. My only few problems with this dress were that it clearly had been worn quite a bit and was fraying in some places, though it was minor. Also, I am 5'6" and should have definitely gotten the long. I actually wore flats for the wedding but of course would have preferred to wear heels. The dress was an inch or two off the floor with 3 inch pumps on me. Overall, perfect dress for any formal affair you may have!

Evening wedding of a long time friend.
I actually didn't end up wearing this dress because I liked the second dress I rented so much more. But this dress was stunning. A little big for me in the bust as I am an A, but the length was amazing! I am 5'11 and was really worried that the Long wouldn't be long enough. It definitely would have been and I probably could have worn kitten heels as well. It has a nice hidden shimmer to it that you can't see in the photo

Awesome dress. I am 5'11" hour glass figure. Comfortable and elegant. Got compliments that evening!
Has a great flow while you walk, the lace looks beautiful. Strapless bra could be worn and not seen with the straps in back. Really elegant. Modest but pretty. Hair was done up in a French Twist, tear drop Nicole Miller earrings, gold handbag, gold bracelet, and gold open toed shoes. Wonderful. If you are in between sizes I would size down. The 8L was great with heels. Would have gotten the Regular length if I was wearing flats or sandals. Would rent this again!

Beautiful dress for the event - bit too long!
The dress is lovely, subtle elegance. As I'm a little over 5'7, I took the recommendation for the "L" which I regret. The front length was fine, but the back of the dress is longer, it sweeps maybe 2-3 inches longer in the back. So I ended up having to hold the back of the dress up all night so that I (and others) wouldn't keep stepping on it. Not the best for dancing! I'd go with the Regular length if you're 5'7 or even 5'8. It fit nicely, but was just a little bit large in the torso. If I did it all again, I'd get a OOR.

First military ball.
Dress fit very nicely. It has some stretch to it so it's very forgiving. I have always had trouble with dresses fitting properly around my chest. This dress fit just fine. I felt like it hide a lot of my imperfections and I felt very cofident in this dress. I think my only complaint is this particular dress seemed pretty worn. The 14R There was nothing really wrong with it but the fabric seemed a little faded and there were some snags in the lace. Nothing that stood out just noticed by me under close inspection. I'm right in the middle of the recommendation for the long vs the regular on length. I think I would have liked the long a little more but it worked. I had a small heal and the dress barley touched my feet. I did have a slight problem with the back of the dress getting stepped on and when I stood up it somehow always found its way under my feet. I feel like for the most part this dress will look good on any body type and make you feel great.

Beautiful, intricate lacework makes for an elegant but romantic look.
I wasn't sure what to expect, as this was my first time renting a dress! The dress was stunning, and fit perfectly. It was soft, romantic, elegant - everything. The lacework was extremely detailed and simply put, just beautiful. The dress was light and moved gracefully. I paired the dress with minimal accessories and red lips. I got so many compliments throughout the night and completely fell in love with it. Two things I would make note of: 1) Although the dress looks grey in the picture, it is actually entirely navy blue 2) Be careful with the lace - it's easy to get it caught. This dress was different than what I would normally wear - it was awesome to try something out of the ordinary without having to make a huge monetary commitment.

I felt beautiful in this dress, very classy.
I wore this to a black tie wedding and received tons of compliments. I highly recommend! This dress is so comfortable. It has a nice stretch, so you can breath and dance the night away. Normal size 8 and this zipped up and fit like a glove. I am a 32DDD and this dress covered the girls and the ribbon on the front was under my breast (instead of on top), I was able to wear a normal strapless bra. I'm 5'9.5" and due to a recent broken leg could not wear heels, this length was perfect length to hit the floor and hide my flats. The skirt is 'swishy' and the slight train are super fun. The lace and train does trip you up a bit, so expect to have to pick the dress up on stairs, etc... My bestie also wore RtR (3rd pic). The con is that this dress arrived damaged, lace was pulled/torn on the left breast area. Customer service was wonderful about it, but I was nervous to try another dress due to my cup size since reviews for full bust women were very positive on this dress. I tucked the lace in and you could barely tell, especially in pictures far away.

Dress fit well, got compliments all night. Perfect for formal black tie wedding.
Got both a 4R and 2R, I am usually a 4 but Badgley Mishka runs a little big, so the 2R fit perfectly. I loved this dress, gorgeous navy color (different from the model photos). I am only 5'4 so it was a little long, but nothing a 3" heel couldn't fix.

Beautiful and sophisticated Grecian princess!
This dress is definitely navy, not grey or green as you may think from the model pic. It is beautiful either way, though. This wasn't my first choice, but I was very happy with it. It fit well and the lace was stunning. I will say that even at 5'8", the L was pretty long on me. I should've gotten the R since the back train is a bit longer than the front (I didn't know it had a train until I walked in it). The back detail is gorgeous as well. I felt classy, sophisticated and almost like a Grecian goddess given the piping detail on the back and bust areas. Would rent again!

How surprisingly easy the process was! Perfect dress that set the tone!
The dress was true to size. The bust was supportive/ snug for my 38D but still flattering. The waist was fitted and gave a great shape to my hourglass. The hip section was free to sway, swish and twerk all you want! Perfect for a developed buttocks area. The length was just right for a 3" heel, anything higher and it looked too short, with a slight train to give it an airy feel with good movement. The only problem I came across was the lace, it kept getting caught on everything! BE WARNED!! The dress is beautiful but the lace does love to attach it's self to anything not smooth, it made the experience a little daunting, towards the end of the night I changed so I could have a carefree session on the dance floor with the little ones and be worried about it getting ruined!

Beautiful dress!
Beautiful, flattering dress and very comfortable. The dress is long and there is a bit of a train, so I probably could have gone with higher heels. Be prepared to lift the skirt getting in and out of cars and going up and down stairs. Overall I was so pleased with this dress and with my RTR experience.
