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!

Navy Peplum was gorgeous. Would 100% rent again. So flattering!
Would wear again. The Peplum style is so flattering. The dress was as described. I normally wear a size 6, but the size 8 fit much better with my bust. The zipper was easy to maneuver. I got tons of compliments from colleagues at our black tie awards dinner from this gown. Simply gorgeous!

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.

Beautiful dress, would rent again!
I wore this dress to a formal wedding. I was 1 month postpartum so I went up a couple sizes. It does run on the smaller side so I would order one size up even if you're not postpartum. It fit beautifully & I got a ton of compliments on this dress. The back is a little low so you might want to opt for bra cups as opposed to a full bra. This dress had just the right amount of peplum & I liked that it was navy, I tend to always wear black to formal events. I would definitely rent this dress again.

Hugs in all the right places-absolutely stunning and never wanted to take it off!
The dress fit like a glove, is extremely flattering and I received compliments all night! As a girl with curves, I was nervous that it may be too tight in the hips and bust area but it turned out great. I did not need to wear spanx as the material was thick enough and it did not show any bra lines. I wore 4 inch heels throughout the night and the dress did drag a teeny bit on the floor (but that's what happens when you're 5'2!) For length purposes I would order the petite but unfortunately it was already sold out. I absolutely cannot wait to rent this dress again (next time in red!) and would recommend it to anyone. The color was stunning, photographed beautifully, and unlike other users, I did not pair a chunky necklace with it. Big earrings worked just fine and did not take away from the dress!

Such a flattering fit. Felt like it was tailored for my body.
I ordered the dress for a company holiday party in both 0R and 2R.. I ended up wearing the 0 because the 2 had a little snag I just couldn't look past. It has so much stretch in it that it wasn't a problem. The length was perfect with 4" heels. I loved the fit and received so many compliments on the dress.

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!

Beautiful dress! It worked perfectly for this winter wedding and looked just how I hoped.
I ordered both the 2L and 4L and couldn't tell the difference in the fit, but chose the 2L because it seemed slightly longer. I wore flats because the dress wouldn't have been long enough with heels.

Classy Fit & Flare
I rented this dress for a Black Tie event and ended up not wearing it. The 0P was a perfect fit for my rather petite frame. 3" heels would have worked perfectly for this goqn. The royal blue color is a very classy and material is quite soft. I had a very difficult time trying to choose which dress to wear, however ended up going with the Badgley Mischka Emmy Gown.

A sexy, unforgettable dress.
I ordered this dress for my Prom, and holy cow, it was incredible. It fit every curve of my body, the color is gorgeous, the fabric is nice but not too heavy- just an overall fantastic dress. The peplum at the waist is a great touch, and the flair at the bottom is classy and elegant. I'd recommend ordering your normal size, and then one down, as the fabric can stretch a little bit. I really recommend this dress!

This dress....WOW. It fit every curve and is truly understated elegance.
Where do I start. I absolutely loved this gown. The fabric is top quality. The fit is spot on. The color is unique. The peplum is an added touch of simplicity, yet elegant. The way it flowed at the bottom gave it the glamour this dress deserves. I received numerous compliments on this dress. I did not wear a chunky necklace or bracelet. I kept it very simple. I usually wear between a 2R and a 4R. RTR did not have the 2R available and sent an awful something else - much to my surprise (RTR PLEASE GIVE A HEADS UP NEXT TIME) so needless to say I was a bit nervous before trying the 4R on. It all worked out though. I didn't receive my mystery bling either. But oh well, I didn't need it.

This dress was so easy to wear! I loved that I could wear a normal bra with it. The material is thick and forgiving...accentuates every curve! I'm 5'8" and the long was perfect with 2-3" heels.

This dress was PERFECT for a military ball and fit like a glove! I received so many compliments!
If you want an extremely comfortable and classy dress this is the one for you! It was originally my back up but as soon as I put it on I knew it was the one! True navy color and fit beautifully. My body type is very thin and normally do not have curves to show off. Well this dress showed off curves I didn't know I had and I LOVED it! Highly recommended!

This gown is so figure flattering and I got tons of compliments on it all night!
I can't say enough about this dress! Everyone loved it. The fit was perfect (6P worked great with 3 inch heels, at 5'3" the 6R would have been too long). The peplum waist was so flattering and it camouflaged my love handles so I didn't even have to wear spanx (praise hands!) I am a large C cup or small D cup and there was plenty of room in the top. The material is pretty thick but stretchy, so it hugs you without suffocating you. Would definitely recommend!

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. :)

Great dress for a formal/semi formal event.
I wore this dress to a Marine Corps Ball, knowing that there would be some ladies in short dresses, some in cocktail and some in dressy pants. I thought it was appropriate for this event, since it was black tie. So glad I ordered a size up! I wear anything from a 6 to a 10, but this dress ran really small. It was very flattering on my curvy, 50 yr. old figure. I wore 3 inch heels and the length was perfect.

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!

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.

Didn't get my backup size :(
When I notified that my backup size (4L) became unavailable-- 2 DAYS before my event-- I was so bummed. They sent me another random dress to complete my order, but the 4 would have been PERFECT! The dress was absolutely stunning, exactly what I had in mind for a formal wedding, but the 2 was impossibly small, I couldn't even zip it or move my thighs. I typically wear a 2-4, have a small waist, muscular legs. Being nearly 5'7" I was SO glad I ordered the long, and the length was perfect.

Beautiful gown for a formal gala in DC. Nice, heavy material.
Gown was a nice, heavy material so it transported well and hugged every curve. I wish I had ordered a 0 and a 0L because the 0 was slightly short on my 5'6" body so I debated wearing flats with the gown. I ended up wearing kitten heals and it worked out, but an inch or two of more fabric on the skirt would have given me a touch more confidence.

Comfortable and classy!
Loved the dress! Extremely comfortable and able to wear a normal bra. I could have worn the 4, but the 6 was a little bit looser for eating and dancing (and still form fitting). I am 5'6" and was able to wear 4 inch heels with the long! Definitely recommend this dress!

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!

Fits like a glove. I got the 0P, am 5 feet tall, and weigh 105 - this dress killed it; I got compliment after compliment. The dress made my butt look great while it was not too tight around the stomach. I got the petite and the length was impeccable. I want to own this dress. The color was classic, the neckline modest, and the cut was extremely flattering.

Very flattering and classy
I normally wear a 4-6 and was surprised at how tight the 6 ended up being. I'm not particularly *ahem* blessed in the posterior region, but that was where the fit was tightest. Just FYI for you lucky ladies who have a bit more going on there - might want to go a size up! That said, once I wiggled into it, the dress was very flattering and just the perfect amount of "sexy" for my work's black tie affair.

LOVE, LOVE!!
Rented this dress as a back up to the Red, which they only had a 6R in . So just to be safe I got a 8R in this . The red 6R ended up fitting good but I was torn between the colors. This dress was perfect! Not as worn as the red , it still had a beautiful quality! The deep blue is just so classy and you can dress it up with some flashy earrings. <3

Loved the look of this dress but I really, really should have requested/worn a 10R. When I tried on the 8, I was well aware of the tight fit but felt I'd deal with it. I would have been comfortable and happy with the larger size.

Very elegant and comfortable!
I recently had a baby and was not sure what size would fit so I ordered the 8R and 10R. A couple weeks before the ball I emailed RTR about my concerns on the dresses not fitting. My stylist was so nice and sent me a 12R to ease my concerns. I wore 3 inch heels with the 8R which was a bit tight and too short with the heels. The 10R fit perfectly and great length. The dress was easy to dance in as well. I would definitely recommend RTR to anyone.

Beautiful and Classy
I wanted a 10L, but they didn't have that available. So I ordered a 8L and 10R. The Regular length was so short, it was comical. I ended up wearing the 8L. It was tight, but looked amazing. I received many compliments. I am 5'9 and wore 3 inch heels. I would have preferred it to be a little longer, but that is a problem I am used to. It's a beautiful gown. I wore it to a military event. It was classy and sexy without being revealing.

I got the most complements i have ever gotten with this dress. At my husbands Military ball. I could have gone down a size, but I dealt with it! I still loved the dress, and along with a bold statement necklace it made everything perfect. Probably one of the best renting's I have gotten with RTR.

What a great first experience with Rent the Runway! Received the gown, it fit perfectly. No issues. Even the delivery bag was adorable! This dress was absolutely beautiful! It was form fitting in all the right place, and it was comfortable all night long. The color is a cool navy, and it stands out from your typical black dress. I received tons of compliments! It was a perfect dress for our friends gala & I couldn't of asked for a better first experience with Rent the Runway!

Loved the classy style and slimming look of this dress!
I paired this dress with a chunky necklace from Rent the Runway and loved how it pulled the whole look together. However, it did fit small around the middle and it ran a little short in the length for me. Be aware and order a size up as your back up just in case.

I have an athletic build but this dress gave me curves. Hugs just right in all the right places. I normally wear an 8 in BCBG because of my chest so this was true to size. I ordered long because I wanted my toes covered and it was just the right length with a 2inch heel.
