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!

Such an amazing dress. It was cute and fun while still making me feel elegant and beautiful.
It had stretct, not too tight. I wore a strapless bra with it since the back was a little low.

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!

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.

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.

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!
