I was a prom chaperone and this dress fit the bill of being formal but not too revealing!

I read reviews that if you’re a 4 you should size up to a 6, so I did and I was glad for it! My hips are wider than my top half, so the size 6 was snug in that area- but in a good way. I’m not sure how comfortable I would have been in a 4. I needed a long size, as I had readnin reviews but I waited too long to order it- the regular was short but I wore heels anyway, as the back is longer in this dress I hoped that was an ok thing to do!

Adorable dress but too small. Fit my hips but couldn't zip beyond that and still breathe.

Beautifully form-fitting

I had planned to wear this gown to a Mardi Gras ball, but when I tried on the size 2L there was just no way. This brand definitely runs small so size up for your regular AND back-up size! I have worn a 2 in every other brand I have tried, so I feel confident that it was the brand running small, not me being bigger than normal. I had ordered a 4R as my back-up size, but the length was too short and there was no 4L available. (I am 5'6") Beautiful gown overall, it just didn't work out for me to wear it. RTR was great and sent me a new dress overnight that I ended up getting lots of compliments on anyway!

Such a flattering dress!

This dress was quite fitted but made me feel very glamorous! My only issue was that I have a larger chest and it was very tight around that area...so much so that I went without a bra.

Not what i expected

This dress was not what I expected. First, it runs quite small. I oredered a 6, with an 8 as back up. Normally, I would do 4 as back up, but it wasnt available so i went with the 8, it's a good thing I did! The 6 was tight, but the 8 fit perfectly. I was not crazy about the fabric, it was sort of a crepe type material and didnt feel good against my skin. Also, the liner was really difficult to keep in place, especially after using the restroom. The seams on the front of the dress kept shifting and twisting, i was constantly tugging and trying to straighten them out. This was my least favorite RTR dress yet.

Winter Wisconsin Wedding (with snow!)

At 5'6" I really read a lot of the previous reviews to decide which one to get. I went with the 4R based on other reviews for women with my height, chest size, and weight. I knew with the material it would be tight, and it was. Otherwise the fit was perfect and breathable. Lengthwise I needed to wear flats and it lightly touched the floor, like I wanted. I am sure with the 4L I could've worn small heels. The peplum accent hit me right where it needed to on my hips/waist. Arms were also perfect, not tight. The V-back was a little too low to wear a bra so I wore a sticky bra. Otherwise it would have been a little awkward.

Dress runs small I had to go up a size. I am 5'6" and my heels could only be about 3 inches, which was perfect.

I feel in love the second I put it on. The perfect dress, endless compliments!

This dress is amazing. Great quality and not too heavy. I wore a 2R. I'm 5'6" and 116 lbs. I have an hourglass figure with a longer torso, average-sized hips, small rib cage, 32D. I wore 3 1/2 inch heels and the length was absolutely perfect. Just the tips of my shoes showed which is what I wanted (I didn't want it to drag on the floor). The dress was snug but in a good way. (I wanted something that showed off my curves, and this dress is made to do just that.) I received compliments all night and my boyfriend loved it. The dress is a mermaid style so snug in the thigh area then it opens up at the bottom but the fabric allows for some stretching. I danced all night! This was my first RTR experience and I was blown away with how satisfied I was.

Classy, elegant dress for a formal wedding

I wore this dress to a NYE wedding and received several compliments! It fit like a GLOVE, aka on the very fitted side. Overall I'd say it fits true to size, but if you're looking for a little wiggle room, I'd recommend sizing up. Also note that the dress is extremely fitted through the hips, so you can't get too low on the dance floor :) This was my first experience using RTR and I could not have been happier with the process/dress!

New Years Eve formal wedding

Loved this dress. Truely timeless and so comfortable. I’m typically an in between sizes kind of girl because my bottom half is a little healthier in size than my top so I could fit into the 6 but it was puckering in places it shouldn’t so I went with the 8 and it was perfect. Fabric is very comfortable and felt it hid imperfections I wanted it to. The length was great for me as I wore 3-4 inch heels and it was just sweeping the floor. You can also wear any bra you want with this dress so that is always a big thing for me. Totally loved it!

I received so many compliments on this dress!!

This dress was perfect! The overall fit was very comfortable & was true to size. I ordered a 6P because I have a bit larger hips and am pretty short. I was able to wear 2inch heels with The dress and a normal bra! I would 100% rent this dress again!

Perfect fit and lots of compliments

This dress fit wonderfully and I️ received many compliments. I️ am 5'1 and was worried about it being too long but with heels it was the perfect length. I would definitely rent this again and recommend it. The 2p was just a bit too small, I️ am 120-125 lbs with an athletic build and the 4p was perfect.

Curve hugging formal dress

This dress is very from fitting without showing any lumps. The silhouette of the dress especially around the knees limited my movement slightly. If you have full hips or a generous rear I would definitely recommend getting a size up.

I wore this for my son's wedding.

It is an absolutely beautiful dress, and I received many compliments. I don't usually wear a 12 though. That was a bit surprising, but I am in my 70's, and not as svelte as I used to be! I loved the peplum, and the fabric. There is no stretch, or give to this fabric. Better to go bigger than your usual size.

Classy, sexy dress that accentuates all features!

This is by far my favorite dress on RTR. I was able to walk around in 3-4in heels without tripping over the bottom of the dress. Long dresses are usually too long for me, but this one was perfect. The material is great. No need to worry about ironing. This dress is very flattering! I would rent again (or purchase)!

Gorgeous dress, super flattering

This dress is not something I would normally go for -- I'm usually attracted to sparkles -- but I thought it would be perfect for the work gala I was attending. It is really flattering and a little dramatic in the best possible way. I am 5'8" and I went with the long because I wanted to wear heels. It was pretty form-fitting but I'd say it runs true to size. Highly recommend!

Awesome dress

This dress was super elegant, perfect for a black tie wedding. I am usually a 4L, but had to do 2L since that's all they had left. The 6R was too short for my 5'7" frame and preference for heels. The material was thick and the peplum top accentuates hourglass figures. Loved this dress. Would rent again (if I could get the 4L)

I rented this dress as a bridesmaid dress for a black tie wedding and it was lovely.

After reading reviews, I decided to rent this dress before the wedding as a "trial run" to determine which size would be best. During the trial run, I ordered my normal 0P and 2P and the 2P fit perfectly. For the wedding, I decided to play it safe and rent a 2P and 4P. Thank goodness I ordered up in size because I couldn't even get the 2P they sent on-it wouldn't go over my hips and butt and was extremely small! I ended up wearing the 4P for the event and it worked out fine. I'm 5'2". 105lbs, 32D. I wore a 2.5" heel and the petite length was perfect. The bust and waist in the 4P was a little looser than I would have wanted if it were my own personal gown, but it was fine for the wedding. I was able to wear a normal bra without it showing. All of the other bridesmaids wore the same gown and it was very flattering on all body types. I would definitely recommend this for a black tie event. It was very classy and elegant. My only advice would be DEFINITELY size up!

This dress was perfect for our friend's wedding on Sept 15th. I received so many compliments!

It's a snug fit, but very flattering for curvy women. I ordered a 10P and 12R, and wore the 10 because the 12 was too big on top and around arms. Didn't need to wear a bra and wore spanx underneath which was a little annoying because the dress kept shifting to the right because of the material. The length on the 10p was a little short, but everything else fit like a glove.

Great dress for a formal wedding any season!

Classy dress that's perfect for a formal affair any season. It does run small, I typically wear an 8 but the 10 was much more comfortable. Although it's a form fitting dress, the fabric is very stretchy and comfortable. Looks great with any shoes. I'm 5'8" and wore the regular length so I could wear flats. Would definitely need the long for heels. Loved this dress!!

The dress was perfect for an elegant mountain wedding!

This dress runs a bit small (size and lengthwise). I rarely need to order anything "long" but the regular was a little short, even with flats. I typically wear an 8, but the 10 was a better fit for me in this dress

I went to a formal banquet. I felt very comfortable in the dress all night!

This dress fit perfectly. I was told by so many people that it was elegant and pretty. I felt very classy. I would suggest wearing spanx or no underwear at all. Another added bonus was the extremely attentive customer service I received when my order was messed up. I love this dress and company!

ok. appropriate, but nothing wow about it.

wore to military formal black tie medal of honor event. both 4 and 6 were snug. didn't notice a difference in for between 4 and 6. wish it would have been more room felt stuffed into the dress. started ordering a 6 and 8 after this rental and have never needed the 8. but this dress would have wanted an 8. this dress was dark navy and the quality was just ok. many rentals and the color was a bit faded. dark room and it was fune, but the dress was at the end of its life.

Perfect gown for a black tie wedding on a summer night.

I ordered a 0P and a 2P. I tried on the 0P first and it fit well. I have a very athletic build so under my arms was a little tight and I decided to try on the 2P just to see the size difference. The 2P would not even zip half way up the back. It was much smaller than the 0P. I even had my roommate check the sizes so I knew I was not going crazy. The 0P was definitely bigger than the 2P. Other than being confused by the sizes, I loved the dress. I was worried about the length, I'm 5'3" and wore 3 inch heels and it was perfect to walk in, I was not stepping on the dress and only needed to lift it for stairs.

I was the best dressed person there.

I read a lot of reviews before I decided to rent this dress, and I noticed a girl with the same body type as me said she normally would wear a four but in this dress she was glad she rented the 6L. I did the same thing, because at 5'10" I didn't want to risk the dress being too short. The 6L fit like a glove. I had so many compliments. If you're a tall girl like I am, make sure you wear shorter heels because there isn't a ton of length. I normally wear really tall heels and I had to wear shorter shoes. For my first experience with rent the runway, this was amazing.

Sophisticated meets Sexy

I'm 5'8" and I'm really glad that I got the 8L because it was barely long enough with 1.5" heals. I wanted a dress that was: 1) Not too hot for summer (it was perfect even though the church for the wedding lacked air conditioning!); 2) Sophisticated and Classy (I was officiating the wedding and wanted to be sure I looked professional AND didn't distract from the bride or groom; 3) Spunky and Sexy (I still had a cute date in my spouse and wanted to show that pastors can be classy and serious at the same time). ALL three goals were met! I loved the dress and so did everyone else who complimented me ("Loved you message AND I love your dress!" was the refrain I heard at least 30 times). You won't regret it...but do order the long if you are anywhere near my height AND make sure you order your usual size and perhaps the size larger too. Have fun!

Stunned silence followed by compliments.

Runs small, I normally wear an 8. The 8 fit, but was tighter in the posterior than I wanted. If you plan on wearing heels and are over 5'7" I would suggest getting the long. Other reviews suggested it and I am glad I took their advice. I am 5'9" and wore the dress with 4" heels, which gave me the perfect clearance for navigating up and down the stairs, dancing, etc. The material has a bit of texture to it; this was perfect as it made Spanx unnecessary. Fantastic dress. I will buying it as soon as I find it in my size.

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!
