I loved this dress! Runs a bit short so make sure to order a long and not a regular if you're 5'6"!
I wound up wearing the size larger just so I had a bit of wiggle room (I was working press for a red carpet awards ceremony so needed to be more comfortable), but really there was very little difference between the 10 and 12. The dress isn't too heavy, especially given the amount of sequins.

Perfect dress! So happy with this choice for a formal dinner and awards ceremony!
There are very few cons to this dress. If you are comfortable with your figure, this doesn't hide much but it's a great flattering fit and you can wear a regular bra! I knew I'd be sitting for a few hours and chose this high collar over a deep V-neck dress. Very pleased and so so so happy I had this option. I wore flats with the regular length dress and they were perfect.

Fabulous, made BFF w the flower girl swishing on the dance floor :)
This dress was perfect for the wedding I went to. I could have gone w the 8 if I had to, but I am glad I had the 6 as if fit snugger and worked better. Needed the spanx to keep things in line. Absolutely super fun dress, swished and swirled so perfectly while dancing and even with my petite size, my. 3 1/2 inch heels made it the perfect length. Loved this dress and it was a huge success.

I loved rent the runway! I will totally use it again
It was such a gorgeous dress but ran a little short. I couldn't wear too big of heels because of the length. I felt beautiful all night even after I ran into another girl wearing the same dress at the event. The green was fantastic and the cut was very slimming.

This dress made me feel like a million bucks!
This dress is fantastic. The 0R fit me perfectly however being 5'1" it was a bit long but I wore heels to make up for it. I love the way the sequins shimmer - this dress stands out! The bottom is a bit heavy but manageable I did hold the train while I danced. If you're going to a formal event and want to stand out this dress is the one!

This dress fit like a dream. It was comfortable, short enough to wear flats, & you can wear a bra!
I typically wear a 12 in dresses (14 or 16 in pants because I have a big butt and thighs) but I opt for more fit and flare cuts so I was nervous about the 12 in such a form fitting cut. But I'm glad I didn't size up too much. I got a 14 and a 12, ended up wearing a 12. You can wear a regular bra - which is a plus! The color is amazing and I got so many compliments on the dress. I would rent it again in another color for my next formal event. The sequins scratch a bit under the arms and the liner rode up a little as the night went on. But overall, I loved wearing this dress.

Gorgeous and very comfortable
This dress is extremely easy to wear. You put it on and don't have to worry about whether your bra is showing, wardrobe malfunctions, etc. The only downside is that the beads rubbed under my right arm all night. The next morning my arm was raw and chaffed from the beading. But it is not bad and would not prevent me from renting it again. Length- at 5'7" the long was perfect with 3-4" heels. The regular would have been too short. True to size. I ordered both 0 and 2. They both fit but the 0 fit in all the right places.

The dress was great!
This dress is unbelievably comfortable but fits like a glove. The sequins aren't over the top but make it memorable. The color is beautiful. The flare and train are elegant. The length worked well and I am tall, though I deliberately wore lower heals to make sure the dress would hit the ground. I received a ton of compliments. I would rent this dress again.

The dress was true to size. I wore tall heels, as I'm pretty short. The dress was so comfortable, even under the arms where I thought the sequins might rub. I can't wait to rent from RTR again!

This was perfect for my Mardi Gras themed gala!
LOVE this dress! I rented this for a Mardi Gras themed gala and I was stopped multiple times throughout the night so people could tell me how amazing my dress looked. It is a very pretty green and not something I would normally wear but paired perfectly with my gold mask. I ordered the long and it was pretty long. The back of the dress is a little longer than the front so that dragged just a little bit but the way the bottom flared made it move elegantly when I walked in heels. I would definitely wear this again for another event!

Couldn't wear the dress!
Hi, I called last night - I received the dresses and both are beautiful, but my first choice was the this one and the 10L fit. This is a picture of a rip on the seam under the arm that I found while trying them on. I did manage to buy another dress that will suffice, but when I spoke with the rep last night, she assured me that my payment would be refunded. I will mail the dresses back today - will you please confirm that my credit card will be refunded? Thanks, Krystyn

Worn to a Mardi Gras ball it was absolutely perfect for the occasion. Tons of compliments.
After reading some of the reviews I decided to go with the 2 long. I am 5'6" and wore 5 inch heels. I'm glad I did because it was the perfect length to hit the floor and I think the regular would have been too short. Overall fit was perfect as well.

I wore this for my friend's wedding & received compliments all night. Good time with a great dress!
I wore the 6R (I usually fluctuate between 4-6, but I ordered the 6 and 8 to be safe). I think the 4R would have been fine, though, because the shoulder and waist area was a little loose... but it still fit very nicely (and left room for me to breathe). The sequins are pretty heavy, but the lining was comfortable and it wasn't itchy or anything like that. I would recommend this dress to anyone... I was sad to pack it up to send back!

Perfect gown for a glamorous wedding in center city Philly! I received so many compliments on it!
I was really nervous to Rent the Runway because I am only 5'0 and I didn't see many reviews for short gals. I took a chance and ordered the 4R with a 2R as a backup. I was pleasantly surprised that the 2 fit much better than the 4. The 2 was the PERFECT length for me with only a 1 inch heel on (which made my feet happy all night :)) The 4 was a bit roomier on top which would have made me feel a little more comfortable, but with a pair of Spanx the 2 was just fine. The 4 was WAY too long. I tried it on with 4.5 inch heels and it was still too long. Luckily I got the back up size! The dress made me feel glamorous and I was so sad to return it on Sunday. As far as the return process goes, everything was extremely smooth and easy! I can't wait to RTR again!

This dress was perfect for the Mardi Gras ball I attended!
The fit is true to size. I opted for the 10 to have a little extra breathing/dance room, but could have work the 8 for a more fitted look. I'm 5'4 and this dress hung perfectly with my heels on. It does have quite a bit of material at the bottom so I held it up for dancing.

Comfortable and Sparkly!
The 12L was quite long, the 10L would've fit better but the hem was noticeably shorter on on side, so had to go with the 12L. Overall the dress was easy to wear and photographed well. Feels heavy off the hanger but not too heavy when wearing it. I did notice (in both dresses) that the zipper wasn't attached to the lining and stuck out a bit on the bottom (my husband even said it looked like I had a tail). But wore it anyway and turned out great.

It's supposed to have a train, at 6 foot tall, it looked awkwardly hi-low.
I didn't wear this dress--it was my backup. It's gorgeous, sporty, not too stuffy. I liked everything about it except the hem. Somehow I had missed the fact that it's supposed to have a train. On me, even with the long, it was awkward. The front was about 2-3 inches off the ground (in flats) and the back was still trailing. So it looked like a failed hi-low hem. Even in heels it still looked awkward.

Glamorous!!
I wore this to a Mardi Gras ball! It was comfortable and I received compliments all night long! The color is even prettier in person. I really loved the small train and the way the dress twirled while dancing. I felt glamorous and didn't have to worry about a wardrobe malfunction. I was worried about the length since I am 5' 8", but long length hit the floor perfectly with a short heel. Loved it and my experience with RTR was wonderful as always!!

The dress fit pretty well and was comfortable!
The overall fit was well, i'd say if you have larger arms/shoulders, go with one size up only because i noticed the arm pit holes to be tight in the 8L. The length was perfect for me and i wore about 2" heel with it. I didn't really have issues with the sequins scraping against my arms. I'd say the only thing about it is that it is a thick material, so i kept getting hot but i get hot easily. That would be my only con! Overall, i'd recommend this dress!

My actual size fit me - 12R. Not too tight and fit my curves nicely. I also liked being able to wear a regular bra.The length was just right with 3 inch heels. I am 5' 7" It was a comfortable dress. However, the lining was too long in front so I had to pin it up.

So easy and so many compliments
Overall I loved the dress. I received so many compliments all night. I could have wore the 10 but decided with the 12 because it gave me extra length. I'm only 5'6 so I really thought I would be fine with the regular length but I couldn't really wear heals because I thought it was too short. I would highly recommend the long.

Beautiful green dress! Great customer service.
This was my first RTR experience and I was super impressed with their customer service. This dress was overnighted to me when the first dress I picked didn't work. The fit was perfect! I wore it to a Mardi Gras party and was able to dance comfortably in it all night. I'm pretty short but needed the longer length to wear with my 4 inch heels. And the green was gorgeous! Very happy with this dress and my whole RTR experience. The only negative I have is that it was a little difficult to zip.

Beautiful gown - easy to wear, looked amazing!
I loved this dress and it fit perfectly! I wore it to a black tie gala and received lots of compliments. This cell phone photo does not do justice to the beautiful green color. I was able to wear a regular bra with it, no problem. I wore 3" heels and definitely needed the "long" dress length. The tips of my toes were visible in front and with the small train, it just slightly pooled on the floor in the back.

Lots of compliments!
I'm 6'0 tall so I was nervous about length. I ordered my usually size 10L which fit me perfectly, unfortunately the length was just a little too short so I wore the 12L which was slightly looser around my natural waist and hips but a couple inches longer in length. I wore flats and it was perfect (taller girls be wary of you want to wear heels!) The sequins didn't bother my underarms like some people. My boyfriend loved it and I received many compliments at the wedding! Definitely recommend!

Old Hollywood glam is what everyone kept telling me all night!
I rented the 6R and 4R after reading reviews from others. I usually never fit into a 4, but I did in this dress. The length was perfect with 4-inch heels. There is a small train, which is tricky on stairs, but it was not a huge issue. The only thing I'll note is that the color of the green sequins on the 4R and 6R were drastically different. The 4R, which I wore, was emerald. The 6R was more of a kelly green. I preferred the emerald and would have been disappointed had I not fit into the 4R. Just something to be aware of. Overall, great dress.

Taking pictures on the "red carpet".
It was a lovely dress. The color and shimmer was beautiful. Size truly matters, I got a size smaller to try and it was snug in all the wrong places, and I HATED it. But when I put the next size up on it skimmed right over all the trouble areas, smoothing everything out. Even though I'm only 5'10" because I am hippy, the long length didn't give me that much room for a taller shoe, an inch and a half heel was just right. My only gripe was about the sequins scratching my arms and irritating my skin, looked like I had a tousle with a cat. Overall I was very pleased with my first rental!

Beautiful gown, just a little too long on my short body.
This was my backup dress but I did not wear it (hence the photo of me in my messy bedroom). It was gorgeous and my girlfriends all picked this one as their favorite however it was heavy and too long for me. I would have had to hold the hem all night long so I chose my other dress which was also gorgeous but easier to wear because it was lighter and shorter. The fit of this dress was perfectly true to size however I wish it came in a petite length. The neckline and dress overall was beautiful. I wish I could have worn it. Please make in a petite length.

My dress really stood out and was extremely flattering. I loved wearing it!
I wore 3" heels with the dress. the 10 was a duller colour and darker shade than the 12 for some reason. Not sure what was wrong but it still looked good. Also, the dress is longer in the back. I loved the dress and got tons of compliments on it! This was my first time using Rent The Runway and it was an amazing experience! I tell all of my friends about it and look forward to using it again.

Amazing dress, felt like a princess!
This dress was stunning. I have red hair and the green sequins looked amazing with my coloring, I received so many compliments! The sequins were slightly scratchy against my underarms, but not too badly. I'm tall so I ordered the 4L, but I could have worn the 4R. The dress is super long and kept getting caught on my heels, but that was the only bad thing about it. Loved it!!

It was a black tie event at a fundraising gala
I loved this dress on the website, it just looked eye-catching without being overly flashy. It is a GORGEOUS shade of dark emerald green when you get it in person, really beautiful and unique. Depending on who makes my clothes, I am between an 8 and a 10. I am 5'6 and 150lbs. I tried on the 8R first, and it fit, but I found it slightly tight under my arms, and did not want to get chafed all night. Plus, you know when you feel something is slightly tight you won't feel comfortable so I decided to try on the 10R. It fit beautifully and made me feel more comfortable. You definitely want high heels with this dress, even with the R length it was a long dress. It flowed beautifully and I got compliments all night. The waistband gives you a really nice curve, but word of warning to my girls with wider hips (like me!), you might not love how it really accentuates your hips. I have a 36DD bust, and even with a normal (no strapless needed for this dress, another plus!) bra, i still felt my hips were the most visible assets on display.

Fit like a glove, length(long) was great along with heels. Looks great in pictures & in person. I didn't experience any issues with the sequins. Also, got compliments all night! Definitely a good dress to wear if you want to stand out & look great, but still keep it stylish and classy!

This dress was stunning; the color, fit and *sparkle* were fantastic!
This was my very first RTR experience. I read many reviews online and looked at many real pictures of people in it and that's what sold me on this gown in the end. I am slim and often 00 is necessary for me in dresses so I was super worried. This dress fit extremely well. It wasn't a perfect fit up top when I was sitting (the top straps seemed to loosen a little when i sat down unless the dress was "taut"). When standing it was perfect. I got tons of compliments and I loved the weight (a little bit heavy) and train. It felt substantial and I liked that (plus it helped me keep warm!) I will use RTR again FOR SURE!

Beautiful dress, the pictures don't do the color justice!
Great fit, very comfortable but I wish I would have ordered the "long" option. I had to wear flats otherwise the dress would have been too short.
