The way it looks when you twirl
It fits so well but is a little short when wearing heels. It looks great when you twirl. I wore it for a pageant I was in for my university.

Black tie worthy
This dress was very sparkly and showy. Wound up being too dressy for the wedding I was attending so I didn't wear it. For size reference if you are my height or taller I'd definitely go for long length if planning to wear heels. I'm 5'7" and the 4l fit perfectly with 3 1/2" heels.

.
I loved the way it feel and it was easy to move in. NOT itchy at all which was a concern. I'm 5'5 so reading all the reviews on what size to wear and I was thinking long size so I can wear heals because I'm not tall but the front of the dress hit the ground perfectly without shoes and with my 3.5 inch heels my feet were showing in the front. I like when my feet don't show, so I bough smaller 2 inch heels and it was a lot better but still showed a little. Overall, very comfortable and fun! I don't know if I would go up a size because I felt like the 10 long was too big in the stomach and top but the 8 long was toooooo short.....

This was my first time using Rent the Runway - it was so easy and so worth it!
Perfect dress for a black tie wedding! I got compliments on it all night. The fit was great, and very flattering. The dress is definitely heavy, so I was glad the wedding was in December - it would be very hot in warm weather. I ordered the 4L and the 4R as backup, and ended up wearing the 4R with low (~2.5-3 inch) heels.

Beautiful dress!!! I felt elegant!
I ordered a size 2L and a 4L. I am 5' 8" tall with long legs and weigh 125 lb. The dress did not hit the ground without shoes in the front, pretty train in the back. I wore 2 inch heels and I felt comfortable. The 4 fit perfectly, the underarms do scratch a bit but otherwise the dress is very comfortable and fits beautifully. I wore it to a New Year's Eve wedding. I would definitely rent it again for the right occasion.

Perfect dress for a black tie event!
This dress was a showstopper! The color is perfect; changes depending on the light. I wore this to a black tie event and got so many compliments. The flare on the bottom of the dress made movement easy, and the rest of the dress fit like a glove. Even with all the sequins the dress was surprisingly light. I will definitely be renting it again!

Beautiful dress all around!
I picked this dress out for a Gatsby themed party. I choose the L size due to all the reviews saying that it runs a little short. I'm 5'6 and it was perfect! I received compliments all night and even a "best dress of the night" one. Very form fitting and excellent choice, thank you RTR!

If you're over 5'6 and wearing heels- get the LONG!
This dress was gorgeous! I got so many compliments at the NYE gala we attended! Even though it is entirely covered in sequins, it's not too crazy because the black and emerald are now over the top. There is a liner under the sequins and actually a black fabric under the armpit area as well so no scratchy sequins ruining your night! This dress is amazing and looked fabulous!

Fashion over function
Dress fit like a dream. I'm 5'8" and needed a long to wear with even moderate heels. Loved the dress but forgot how much sequins hurt. My underarms are cut up and my ankles also got a bit irritated when I walked. Would recommend some liquid bandage for areas that rub. Also my shoes buckled around ankle and I found them to catch on the dress - pumps may be a better choice. All in all it was worth it for this beautiful dress!

A stand out dress!
I enjoyed wearing this dress to our New Year's Eve formal event. For me, the petite length was perfect with 2.5 inch heels for dancing and moving easily about. The fabric and sequins catch the light so well and the skirt below the knees (a mermaid look) gives it a little something special too. I loved the fact too that I could wear a bra with straps (movable so as to match the line of the dress in the back) and didn't need to wear a strapless bra. I also agree with other comments about the sequins sctatching underneath the arm, particularly if you are plan to do a lot of dancing (which we did!). I would definitely rent it again!

winter wedding perfect
This dress is even more amazing in person. I felt so pretty. I'm 5'6 and with heels the regular would have been short so I went with the long. It has some stretch so I could have done the 2 or 4 but did the 2. People were stopping me all night to tell me how much they loved this gown. It was the most stunning dress I've ever worn.

This was for a charity gala.
I am 5'3, about 125 pounds an the 4R fit quite nicely. I think if you have a large chest - C or D, this size might not be right. Very flattering. The fabric was thick. I agree with others that a 4 regular actually could've been a little longer considering most people are wearing heels. I wore about 3 inch heels and the length still touched the floor but any higher heels and it would not have been the right height.

Perfect Dress
I how easy this dress is to wear. It was beautiful and got plenty of complements at my formal work holiday party. I think this dress is pretty true to size. As a normal size 6 (5'6'' 130 pounds), I thought maybe the 4 would work but it was too tight all over. The size 6 fit me perfectly!

The color & style were beautiful. Though I've rented other gowns this one in particular ran a bit snug. I would suggest going up one size for backup. As always, a wonderful experience.

Best dressed!
I was at a Christmas party for my husbands job and I have never in my life felt this beautiful. This dress is an eye turner. I had strangers coming up to me all night telling me how stunning I looked. At one point a woman tells me that she was told to find the girl in the green dress because I was a must see. Kinda crazy! I am 5'8" and 145 lbs. I normally wear a size 4 but it was a little snug so I went with the 6. I also got the long and wore one inch heals, it was perfect. Definitely glad I went with the long and not regular.

Perfect Dress, Perfect Night
Fit was spot on. I ordered 14WR and 16L and ended up wearing the 16L for length only. They fit exactly the same! The train in the back is super swishy when you walk, it's great. The dress has a tiny bit of stretch in the lining and was very comfortable sitting and standing. I got a lot of compliments from people saying they noticed the dress from the moment I walked in :). I highly recommend this to everyone! It's a showstopper.

Stunner!
I felt amazing in this dress!! I actually ordered this for my Christmas card photo and it couldn't have been more perfect! It hits all the right spots, accentuates the waist, then flares out a touch to hide any belly. Go for the tall if you plan on wearing heels. At 5' 8", my flats were barely covered. I genuinely did not want to send this dress back and have searched for it all over to purchase it!

Non stop compliments
I rented this dress for a company holiday party. As a first time user of RTR, I could not be more satisfied. The dress was clean, delivered on time, and fit like a glove. I received compliments all night. I anticipated the gown to be heavy because of all the sequins, however, it was not. The zipper is a little pesky because of the material, but do not let that deter you. It was truly a show stopper.

Feeling so confident and beautiful in a gorgeous dress!
Dress arrived on time and nicely packaged, in a large fabric hang up bag that folds and zips into a carrying case. This dress fit (0R size) perfectly and was so comfortable to dance in. I can't tell you how many times people complimented me throughout the night. The green sequin fabric was perfect for a holiday gala. I did not have any problems with the dress rubbing my arms, like some people have commented. I loved that it was a bit slinky and clung to me in the right places. I wore this dress with 3 inch heels, a sticky bra, and a beautiful pair of RTR earrings! Will definitely rent again for the next formal event.

Perfect twirl dress for dancing at a very formal wedding!
I was so happy with this dress. The fit was great and it was very comfortable. It was easy to sit, move around, and dance the night away. I'm glad I got the long length to wear this dress with heels. There's a tiny train with the dress so that might get in the way if The length is it right. The emerald color was really beautiful and it was not too flashy. Plus I could wear my own normal bra with a stress which I think is awesome. I wish I had another formal event to rent the stress again. I highly recommend it.

Fantastic dress!! I received compliments all night and it sparkled and glittered on the dance floor.
Fit perfectly! I wore spanx underneath but really no need to because the sequins hide all the flaws. A major plus that a normal bra works with this dress. I've never been stopped so many times by strangers, male and female, to say what a glamorous dress this is. Would 100% rent again

This dress was true to size and fit like a glove. I did end up wearing spanx to smooth everything out but other than that i felt beautiful in it! The length was just right and I could wear a normal bra with it which was awesome! The only con was the sequins did rub my inner arms a bit, but that's just a small price to pay!

Spectacularly comfortable
Beyond expectations. I fluctuate between having an hourglass shape and being very athletic looking. At the moment I am more athletic due to my workout regiment. This dress made me look like I had my hourglass figure back. It sinched my waist and gave me the curves I could only dream of at the moment. This dress is spectacular. It is heavy with some give but I didn't mind due to it being cold outside. It has an amazing floating feeling to it and it sparkles with the best of them when you walk or move. It was a bit shorter than I was expecting considering I am short. With 2 inch heels, the dress was just above the floor. Will absolutely rent this dress again. I do wish I had a picture to show it off.

Beautiful Color!
This dress really accentuated my waist, and was very forgiving even though it is form fitted. I loved the green color, it was perfect for a Christmas Party! I wore the 14W which was a tad big, even though I usually wear a straight size 16. This gown is also pretty long as it is meant to have a bit of a train, so short girls like me should plan on wearing taller heels.

I wore this to my husband's company holiday party, it was fabulous. I received so many compliments.
I am 4'11" and initially rented the 0R, however, it was way too short with my 6 inch heels and the top was pretty tight on my chest. Being new to RTR, I neglected to order a second size and reached out to customer service. They were amazing and sent me the 2R overnight. The 2R was perfect in the length and the top was much more comfortable. The only thing was it was a little loose in my waist and hips, however, no one could tell by looking at it and it photographed amazing. The sequins did not bother me at all and were so pretty under certain lighting. This dress was perfect and I would definitely wear it again.

I kept getting stopped by people telling me how much they loved the dress!
Overall it fit really well. The only negative thing I have to say is that it was too long in the back. I based my order size off of reviews and the shoes I wanted to wear. When it came it was about a half inch too long in the back with 2 inch heels on. I probably should have ordered the regular length and then picked my shoes based on the length of the dress. While it bothered me while walking around at home, I barely noticed it at the party.
