Used this dress for a masquerade gala and I looooved it.
I am only 5'1 so I was afraid the dress would be too long; however, with a pair of heels, I was fine all night. I am normally a size 2 but I was not able to fit in the size 2, I had to use the backup size.

Flattering gown!
This gown was super flattering. Highlighted the good stuff, but hid the flaws too! I will caution tall girls because I rented the Long length, and I'm 5'8", and I had to wear flats with this dress. It got lots of compliments though, and I was comfortable all night!

Loved wearing this!
I am about 5'2" and I wore the 0P with about 3in heels and it was JUST above the floor, so the length was perfect with average height heels. Didn't have to wear a bra because the fit was so perfect. I had two random strangers come up to me just because they loved the dress! Wore it to an opera at the Met and absolutely loved it. Extremely comfortable but still fits well.

Flawless, effortless
I wore this dress to a black tie optional wedding in Newport. The 2P fit like it was tailored for me, and was completely effortless. The material was luxurious, and lighter weight than I expected. It was truly a petite length, and was perfect with 3" heels. It slipped on, flattered my curves, didn't require a bra (although spanx for the belly/butt helped make everything smooth). It was complimented by my husband and wedding guests alike. I'm struggling to not purchase this dress (don't tell my husband!).

Beautiful dress
The dress was beautiful and very comfortable. Got a ton of complements. Only issue was it was short in length. Without heels it hit the floor with them it was way too short. I'm 5'5 so this is not a problem normally.

This was my first time using RTR and definitely not my last!
This dress was amazing! I usually wear a 6 or 8 and the 8 ended up fitting better since the dress is meant to be tight fitting. I am 5'8" and wore about a 3 inch heel with the regular length dress which was perfect because the dress didn't drag the ground and just showed off enough of the shoe! Despite the dress being tight I was still able to dance without feeling restricted. I wore this dress to my sorority's formal and it was perfect because it wasn't too fancy but was simply elegant! This dress also flatters very small body types, I am in no way "blessed" on either end but the peplum around the waist not only defined my waist but all around made my body look great!

Would Rent Again
The fit was perfect. I had compliments all night. I really loved how the material had just enough give to make sitting, dancing an eating possible. I thought the length was spot on. I do prefer a dress that does not go all the way to floor but hits about and inch above. There is nothing worse than a beautiful dress sweeping or dragging the floor... practically begging someone to step on it. The peplum really highlights a small waist. LOVED IT!! Not sure why measurements are not showing up: Height 5'3, Bust 34C, Weight 112 lbs.

I wound up not wearing this dress for my event.
I am 5 feet tall and the dress would have been perfect with about 4 inch heels. I normally wear a size 4, so I ordered a 4 and a 6, but neither dress worked. I just recently had a baby about 3 months ago, so the dress was especially snug in my hips. Ultimately, the dress (both sizes) was too small and I didn't wear it. Don't get me wrong, it's absolutely gorgeous and classic, but it does run small.

I plan events for a non profit and this dress was exactly what I wanted.
The fit was perfect. I am glad that I got the 4. It hugged in all the right places and I was able to wear a regular bra with it and not have to worry about it showing in the arm holes or the back. I was able to work, dance, and move freely. The fabric was super comfortable with a little stretch.

Not trying hard but well dressed.
This dress is a little more casual than most of the black tie dresses that I have rented. But I loved it. Very cute and fun. Fits great. I did size up after reading other reviews. I am 5'4 and I could only wear short heels (like less than 2 inches.) Very comfortable. The material is very thick and I think most gals would prefer spanx with it to smooth because the peplum stops/starts instead of going all the way around, so you can definitely notice the break at the tummy.

I wore 3" heels with it - and it hit just above the ground how I like it. I wear a 34DD and did not have to wear a bra with this dress as it was just snug enough to keep the girls in place.

I got so many compliments on this dress and it was perfect for a black tie wedding.
Im about 5'5 and it was a tad short for 3in. heels so I would suggest getting the long if you plan on wearing higher heels.

I wore this dress to my daughter's New Year's Eve wedding. It was red carpet worthy!
After reading all the reviews I went up a size. I am not quite 5'8" and weigh 130 lbs. I usually wear a size 6 and the size 8 fit like a glove. I'm glad I got the Long! It's very heavy fabric which was perfect for winter but might be hot in the summer. It's a beautiful dress and I got tons of compliments.

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!

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!

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!

Hugs the curves beautifully!
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.
