Love this dress!
I normally wear a size 0 or 2. After reading all the wonderful reviews I ordered sizes 2 and 4. So glad I did! I could barely get the size 2 sipped. But the size 4 fit like a glove!

Beautiful gown!!
I rented this dress as my backup dress for a formal wedding. When I took it out the bag I (and my boyfriend) fell in love and wanted so badly to wear this one! I ended up not wearing this dress because it was uncomfortably tight. The material is thick and soft, the length is perfect and the color is beautiful! I wrote this view to speak on the dress running a tad small. So reserve a size up when choosing this one. Will rent again to get the bigger size and get to enjoy this beauty!!

Black-tie wedding - Great dress!
I loved this dress and so did everyone else. Very comfortable - very form-fitting. I could have gotten away with the 2 as the 0 was a little tight, but the hips/thighs on the 2 were just a bit too large. I would size up if you have fuller hips. Was able to wear a normal bra, which was great! If you're tall, I'd suggest going for the Long - I'm only 5'3" and had to wear short heels with the regular - definitely don't do petite if you're even above 5'0" and want to wear any kind of heel!

Beautiful Dress!
I received many compliments on this dress! It fits true to size (I am 5' 2'', 120lbs, 32C bust), I wore the 2 petite and it fit PERFECTLY. Rent the Runway staff worked their magic to get me this dress over night as my original pick would not arrive on time due to package delays during the holiday season. If you are looking for something elegant, yet fun and easy to move around in- this is your dress!

Perfect fit to show off the curves!
I have a good friend who has rented this dress twice for events and figured I should try it for myself. I wore it to a Black Tie Optional Wedding on NYE. I was worried when I first put it on that the length was too short. It came up higher than I expected it to, as in didn't skim the ground like I'm used to with longer dresses. After some research, it's how it's supposed to fit. I went up one size for a little more comfort and length. The dress was wonderful for the curves and I received so many compliments through the next. Of course, it was great for the dance moves as well.

Non-Profit Gala
Dress fit perfectly. I'm 5' 2" and I wore 3-inch heels - it is rare that a long gown fits me so perfectly in terms of length. It was a last-minute rental and I was very happy it worked out!

Classic silhouette with a special detail!
I wore this dress to a recent holiday party and felt great in it! My normal size 4R fit like a glove but the length was too short for my liking. I decided to wear the size 6 instead, which was a little bit looser, but still looked great. The extra length (at least 4") allowed me to wear a short heel without my shoes peeking out. Overall it was a great first rental experience!

Beautiful but TINY!!
I couldn't even get the size 2 further than my butt! When I attempted it over the head I almost got stuck! I'm a true size 2, and I would have fit the 4 or probably a 6 even!

Too short if you're tall...
I ordered this dress for a Christmas party in a size 12 long. I was surprised that it fit in the bust because I'm busty, but it was way too short. I am 5'9" tall and the long length showed my feet even in Flats. Not for tall girls!

I rented this for my son's wedding and LOVED IT! It was a very flattering and comfortable dress and I received compliments all night long! Loved the way the bottom flared out when I danced! It does run small so recommend getting the next size up! I would highly recommend this dress .

A Non Stressful Way To Shop For Events
The process was streamlined for ease from ordering to return. With such a variety of clothing lines, there was no problem finding something appropriate . This particular dress was well made, but ran a little tight. I can wear a 4 in a lot of brands, but even the 6 was slightly snug in the rib cage. The dress drapes nicely from hips.

Beautiful dress, perfect for gala.
This dress was a stunner and I received compliments all night. I am short (5'0'') so even with my very tall heels, it was still a bit long, but I made it work by holding it up when I was going up/down stairs. I'd say it runs TTS, but slightly tight in the bust. I would have preferred SLIGHTLY more fabric in the bust area. Otherwise, it fit perfectly.

The dress was perfect for this elegant wedding.
Fit was great, a little tight in my thigh area than I wanted. The peplum does not go all the way around so don't be fooled. The front of your tummy is not covered by the peplum, they are more like flaps. Got a lot of compliments!

I received so many compliments on this dress from complete strangers! I rented both the 12R and the 12L and the 12L worked best for me. I am 5'5" and the 12R came down to my feet when I was barefoot. I love to wear heels so the 12L worked best for me! The dress was a little tight, but the material did have some give in it! Loved this dress!

Beautiful, structured, and fitted gown!
Pros: This dress is beautifully fitted and looks great on petit body types. The peplum hides any "food baby" you might have after dinner Fabric really holds everything in It is actually, truly a petit fit. Normally petits still don't fit my torso but this was a little snug. Cons: Because the fabric doesn't have much give the dress fits tight The skirt is cut shorter in the front than in the back and is actually a petit fit. My shoes were visible when walking. Overall a beautiful dress.

Great fit and color!
I was given many compliments while wearing this dress at my brother's wedding. Since I was also the photographer I needed something easy to move in and this fit the bill perfectly. The only downside is the fabric is quite heavy, on a hot summer day it might not have been so comfortable.

Beautiful silhoette
This dress definitely runs small and the 6R was about an inch too short with three inch heels. It fit like a glove otherwise (I'm 5'5" about 128lbs) but was tight in the torso when sitting down. The color is beautiful and it gives you a great shape when standing.

I received so many compliments on this dress, beautiful fit and perfect for a winter event!
Dress fits snug around the waist and down to the knee, but the fit is great. I ordered my regular size 4 and a 6R as backup, but it was huge. The dress definitely fits true to size. I was able to wear a regular bra with it and spanks underneath. Fabric is thick, but comfortable and perfect for the winter time. Loved this amazing dress, I'd rent it again!!

Great fitting dress, got lots of compliments! Hugs higher waist with peplum to be very flattering!
I'm 5'7" and wore 3 inch heels which just peaked under the bottom of the dress when i walked, but kept the dress from hitting the floor. The back dips just low enough to show some bra strap but hardly worth extra accommodations, just plan on wearing a black/navy bra to be less noticeable.

Absolutely stunning
The dress fit like a glove. Made me look like I actually have a figure! It accentuated everything I wanted to, and hid all the rest ;) I received so many compliments. I am 5'7" and could only wear 1-2" heels in the "Tall" without it being too short, though! Sooo pleased with this rental. Would definitely rent again.

Very elegant and simple dress for a black tie optional wedding!
It fit like a glove - I received so many compliments! The length was perfect. The dress definitely runs small - I would have been more comfortable with the next size up but it was not available. The reviews were all accurate which made it very easy to set expectations for this dress!

Very flattering for all body types.
I loved this dress and felt very comfortable all night. I'm 5'9" and the dress barely hit the floor with flats so I highly recommend the long length. I could wear a normal bra but I pinned the straps to the dress just in case. No shapewear needed as the fabric is stretchy and smooths everything out. Highly recommend!

The dress was very sexy and flattered every curve. I think it ran a size smaller.
Runs a size smaller as I usually wear a size 8, happy to be able to get 2 sizes.

tight in reg cage, material was diff than i expected
i am 5'2" 120 pounds and 32DDD. The length with 3 inch heels was PERFECT! Also i didn't need a bra which is basically unheard of. The dress fit BUT it wasn't super comfy. The rib cage was slightly tight which doesn't really happen to me? Anyways, i rented 3 so this was a no. IF it was my only one i would wear but def size up for back up IMO p.s the material reminds me of bridesmaid chiffon, idk, its not my favorite... looks more casual

The dress is pretty and very flattering but size up. The fabric is more lightweight than it looks in the photo and not stretchy at all. My back-up size 6 was still too tight and too short.

I loved this dress! It was beautiful, classy, and super flattering. I am 120 lbs and 5'2 and the length worked with 2 inch heels. Originally I ordered a 0 and 2 petite and ended up having to get a 4 over nighted to me, but RTRW took care of it with no problems!

went with a different dress
This dress was tight around my thighs, probably should have went with an 8L. The material feels thicker than I was expecting. I'm 5'7 so I don't think a regular length will work for me. I picked this for a wedding but since I have the unlimited membership I'm going to go with another style.

I got a ton of compliments and felt very comfortable at a black tie wedding!
I got a ton of compliments and it was very comfortable (for a formal dress.) I wore 3 inch heels and I am 5' 6" which made it the perfect length. I was able to put it on with a bra (34B) or sticky boobs. For those who are comfortable, it seems like you could go braless if you wanted. Easy to put on/walk/sit in! I definitely recommend it for a formal event.

Very classy!
The dress was beautiful and classy. It was form-fitting, and I wore spanx to hide my excess belly "fluff". Easy to wear with a normal bra. My con with this dress is that it RUNS SHORT. I sized up to a 12 because it was slightly longer than the 10, however my shoes were still very visible. I am 5'6 and planned to wear heels, but I had to wear flats because it ran so short. I would say order the long if you are taller than 5'3!

Loved this for a formal business event. Maintained professionalism while still showing off curves.
The petite was shorter than expected. I'm 5'2" and could only wear 2 inch heels without it being too short.
