I felt SO good in this dress!
This dress fit perfectly! The fabric was nice, not much stretch and fit snug around the waist and hips! The flair at the bottom was perfect and I was able to wear a regular bra so that was a pro! Love love love and wish I didn't have to send it back!!

Absolutely classic. So many compliments!!
I loved this dress so much - I'm SO happy I rented it. I'm 5'8" but my date was short so a wanted to wear flats - the regular length worked well! It would have been nice for it to be like half an inch longer. But it touched the floor when I was wearing flats, and there is a mini-train in the back that's gorgeous. I'm usually a 2 on top and 4 on the bottom. With the 4R, the hips were snug, so I recommend ordering your normal size for your hips, as well as one size up. I haven't worn a dress with this material before - it's lovely! The dress is made very well - flattering and comfortable. I could wear a normal bra with this as well.

RTR overnighted me dresses, since my original choices did not arrive due to snow storms
I decided to use this pic above all others because it shows the detail of the dress. I was very unsure about choosing this gown because the color differed from one review to another. The color is a light navy. The peplum and mermaid shape are figure flattering but also gave me an hour glass shape! This dress was my back up but I loved it more than the others sent. However size up for your second size! I am 5'6" and the long was a perfect length with heels.

Classy and gorgeous!
Absolutely loved this dress. Wore it to a military dinner, so wanted something conservative yet fashionable and this was perfect. Usually dresses run long for me but this dress was the absolute perfect length with my 3.5 inch heels. Pretty true to size, accentuated my waist really well. Customer service was also great, I'm definitely renting again. I loved this dress wish I didn't have to send it back!

Felt squeezed into a dress that was too short
I ordered the 10R and the 12R as a back up. Both dresses fit exactly the same and both were way too short. I ended up wearing the 12 because it was a tiny bit longer but I still had to wear flats.

Made me curvy!
By the end of the night, I didn't want to take this dress off!! At first, I ordered a 0 and a 2, but they were too small so they overnighted me a 4 and it fit perfectly. I loved the way the peplum made me look like I had curves and the shape of the bottom made my butt look great! Fit nicely in the boobs. Wore sandals because it was just long enough.

Very true to size. The fabric was very forgiving and comfortable. I wore it to a black tie wedding and got lots of compliments! I'm 5'1 and the length was great with 3" heels. But beware if you're tall!O

This dress is classic & beautiful. Fit like a glove! Would rent again.
Dress runs 58'' from shoulder to hem. I am 54'' shoulder to floor. With a high heel it was fine. Even covered a wedge I slipped into later for dancing when my heel was too uncomfortable. I'm petite w curves and the peplum gave a beautiful hour glass shape I loved.

I have never gotten so many compliments on a dress before. Perfect fit and very flattering
I have gained some weight recently so was worried this dress wouldn't look good on me, but it fit perfectly and was stunning! It even made me look like slimmer. It was very long on me though, but was perfect with high heels.

Amazing dress
Runs kind of small, glad I got a size up. It's pretty tight if you have a large bust (34DD) but I made it work. I got compliments all night and felt amazing in it. It definitely holds you in so no spanx needed!! Wish I could've kept it, I loved this dress!!!

Perfect combination of sexy and elegant!
The dress was beautiful! I ordered the 2l since previous reviews said it ran short. The fit was perfect, but the dress ended up being too long, so I ended up wearing the 4R dress, and the length was perfect. The fit was only slightly bigger in the hips, but fit nicely and looked great. I would definitely recommend renting this dress!

Wore this dress to the annual Navy Ball and received many compliments about the unique peplum look, dress was a little tight especially on top- I'm a 32C but still flattering.

Perfect fit and so comfy
This dress fit like a glove but the fabric has stretch so I was comfortable and could move around. The peplum waste is so flattering and the color is a beautiful blue (not as dark as navy). Love the flare skirt (great for dancing!) and the R length was perfect with my 2 inch heels. Would definitely rent again!

Gorgeous dress, fun to wear!
I am between a 4 and 6. The 4 wasn't available but I am glad I got the 6 due to the chest - if you are a C or D cup and you are in between sizes - go with the larger size. The dress has a lot of stretch but the fit is really amazing! It hugs you in all the right places. The dress was really thick so imagine you could wear spanxs if you like but I don't think anyone would need to - those things are torture to me. I am 5'3 and wore 4 in heels and the R was perfect in length. Also - you don't have to worry about this dress snagging on jewelry or showing your bra! Love it and got complements all night long!

Classy and subtly cute
I didn't have any problems with the logistics/functions of the dress so that's a huge plus. I'm short so I only worried about the length of the dress; 4P was perfect because it touched the floor with heels and the train didn't get stepped on much either. I usually wear 4P for anything else so for me, it was true to size. I picked this dress to an evening cocktail wedding because it was 40 degrees outside and didn't want my legs to be cold nor did I want to stand out because I wore a long dress. I think I blended in just fine; the dress was classy and subtly cute. :)

Beautiful Classy Dress
This is my favorite RTR rental so far! It is a very form-fitting dress. Strangely enough, the size 0 was larger than the size 2? Someone else had written that in a previous review and I found it to also be true. Definitely size up with this dress. And be prepared to wear spanx!

The dress fit perfect and the quality is noticeable. Wore this dress to a formal work event.
The dress was a perfect length for my 5.6 height with 4 inch heels. It's extremely comfortable and easy to sit, walk or dance for long evening events. A really great dress and I'm very happy I got to wear it to the formal sales award dinner. I received, so many compliments and felt very well dressed.

This was my first RTR experience and I was very pleased!
The fit ran a bit small, but it fit almost perfectly. I'm 5'4, 34C, and 133lbs and the 6P was perfect. I wore a small heel and the length was perfect. Super comfortable and flattering to the waistline. Highly recommend this classic look and color!

This dress is so beautiful. I rented it for a gala and I was complimented all night. The fit is phenomenal (for anyone with a booty like me, this dress hugs your curves in the best way possible). I felt beautiful all night - I would rent this dress again.

The fabric was thick enough to be form flattering but thin enough for a hot Texas night.
Wore this for a military ball this spring. The only con was that I should have ordered a 2L since the 2R fit perfectly but was too short to wear with heels. I ended up wearing the 4R for the length with flats since it was still to short for even 3 inch heels.

Felt so fancy!
I ordered the 0r and the 2r the 0 was too short and really tight and the 2 was even shorter and way too big! I'm only 5'5 and wore the shortest heels I had so that it didn't look too short! I ended up squeezing into the 0 because I didn't have a backup dress but with my 34 C chest it barely zipped! Once I got into it, it was very comfortable fabric and made me feel fancy all night long!

The fit was perfect and was true to size. Loved the thicker material for a fall wedding. Great dancing dress! Was comfortable all day and night. Everyone I met complimented the dress. it was the right amount of formal and it gave me curves! This was my first rent the runway experience and I couldn't be more happy with the process. Can't wait to rent again!

Elegant, classic dress that is a must rent!
I absolutely LOVED this dress and received so many compliments about how classic and elegant I looked in it. I am usually a 2 in dresses but found the 2 to be too short for the heels I was wearing so I chose to wear the 4. The dress was very comfortable. I could drink, dance, and eat the night away. This is a must rent dress! The color was a beautiful chalky navy as well. Looked great with gold accent jewelry and some pop of color. The peplum was adorable as well!

Very flattering
I've worn this dress before in a different color. I ordered the long because I like my dresses to hit the floor but this didn't quite touch the floor and I'm only 5'5". That's the only complaint about the dress bits. Comfy and it holds you in nicely.

Elegant, classy, and flattering
I usually wear a 10, and the 12l was perfect. Almost too tight. The long length was just right, the regular would have been too short for my 3 inch heels. I loved the contoured fit, and I didn't have to wear spanx! I would definitely use RTR again!
