How easy it was to dance in this dress.
I'm on the shorter side, and the length of this dress was absolutely perfect. I took my heels off halfway through the night, and it still didn't drag on the floor. The bodice is stunningly beautiful, and fit perfectly as well. I would highly recommend this dress for those with petite frames.

Beautiful dress, but way too short!
I rented this for a military ball, however I was unable to wear it. I am only 5'3 but this dress came up almost to my ankles. It is super short and fit just a bit snug. I rented a 38R (2R) which is my normal dress size. I definitely suggest getting the longer length no matter how short you are, especially if you plan on wearing heels. I ended up renting a different RTR dress in the same size and it fit perfectly with length to spare. The color of this dress is stunning in person and the gems are adorable on the dress, some have a copper hue to them and are very trendy. I wish I could have worn it for the event.

I felt like Cinderella!
When I received this dress, I was devastated because some of the jewels were falling off. However, after I talked to the reps at RTR, they said it was ok if someone fixed the dress. Luckily, I have a great seamstress friend that had this dress in top notch shape in a few hours. This dress fit perfectly, very comfortable and "flowy", and I got compliments all night! The color looked great with my boyfriends uniform too. I posted the 2nd picture just to show the length of the dress. I am just barely 5'6", the heels I wore were about 2.5 in, and this is the 42L! It was perfect length for me, but if you are taller or plan on wearing higher heels, it may be too short for you. Overall, I am in love with this dress, and didn't want to take it off, let alone send it back!

I got tons of compliments on the dress. The color is soft and beautiful and loved the crystal bling
I'm 4"11.5"' tall and a size 4 in most dress sizes. The 40R fit perfectly. I did have to tuck in the crystal strap in the back because it was a little too long. I also wore 5" heels which was really perfect. The dress was about 1/2" to 1" off the floor.

Beautiful dress!
I am happy with my rental of this dress, the color of the dress is beautiful, and it photographed well. The only thing is that the dress is very short! I had to wear very small heels with my dress.

Very pretty, too short
This dress was beautiful in person but unfortunately it was way too short for my 5'9'' body. I ordered the 42L which fit well but was too short and the 44L as backup but even the larger size was a good inch off of the floor in my bare feet. I had to return.

Perfect dress for a formal affair
LOVED this dress. Wore it to a black tie wedding in July and it was the perfect combination of glamorous and romantic and it transitioned well from day to evening. I loved the detail on the strap - wore a bracelet and dangling earrings and it worked perfectly, no necklace needed. The fit was snug up top (but I am large chested which is why I had to wear the 40 instead of 38) and the bottom is flowy with no constricting liner. It looks pretty in pics because of the silk underlay below the chiffon. I'm 5'3"" and the R was perfect - i could have worn flats but chose to wear heels. you could see my whole foot but it was nice to show off your shoes and be able to walk easily. I would rent it again for a formal affair!
MarlaAugust 12, 2012
A) this dress looks great on you! I hope it looks this good on me. B) I hope this isn't too forward, but did you wear a strapless bra with the dress, or is it not necessary with this bodice?
RTRAugust 20, 2012
Hi Marla, this dress can be worn with a strapless bra and it also has a built in bodice for support.
HanAugust 22, 2012
Hi Molly. I'm 5'3", too. Without shoes, did the dress touch the ground? I prefer wearing very high heels, so I'm nervous this will be too short. Thanks!
mollyAugust 22, 2012
Marla - i did start with a strapless bra but took it off mid-evening. i don't think you'll need one - the dress is very fitted on top. Han - the dress just touched the ground without shoes. i would recommend getting the L if you want to wear high heels and not have your whole foot showing.
HanAugust 22, 2012
Thanks, Molly!
SaraAugust 28, 2012
Hi Molly, I am also thinking of renting this for a black tie wedding and I'm wondering about the color. It looks much more blue in your picture whereas the others and icon online look grey....can you describe the color and if it was what you expected? Thanks!
RTRAugust 31, 2012
Hi Sara! This dress is a gray/blue color. It does not look as bright as it does in Molly's photo. It is a gorgeous dress!

Big Hit!
I rented this dress for my brother in laws wedding. I just had a baby and wasn't sure what size I would be but the 42 fit perfectly. Even better it was the perfect length so I could wear flats for this outdoor wedding. No getting stuck in the grass for me! I was getting compliments all night on the dress. It truly was gorgeous!

Great Prom Dress
This dress was perfect for my senior prom! The 38 fits just like a usual size 2 dress, and worked well on my petite, small-busted frame. The regular length fell an inch or two above the floor without shoes on, just enough room so that I wouldn't step on the dress while dancing, which was nice. I was also able to wear 2 inch heels with it and it still looked great.

Great dress for my formal
This dress is so beautiful but it does run short. I ordered the 38R because they didn't have a 38L and I was afraid the 40L would be too big in the waste (I am 113 pounds, and about 5'4). It was too short for me to wear with heels but I wore flats and the dress still touched the ground. It also fit perfectly around the waste. It was perfect for a formal and I loved the color!

I'll never forget how pretty I felt when I put this dress on. It's like playing dress up when you were a kid...But now it's for real!!
I wore this to an awards banquet and I received so many compliments. I am usually and XS and the 38R fit perfectly. I am also short and wore 5.5 in heels and it barely cleared the floor. Definitely recommend this dress.

great dress!
i loved this dress. it was the perfect size and fit. if you are taller than 5'4 i would probably suggest the long because the regular just fit me and i'm 5'1.5.
MaryMarch 16, 2012
how high were your heels?
BrianaApril 18, 2012

HanAugust 29, 2012
Hi Briana. I'm almost your measurements and am thinking about renting this dress in long because I like to wear 3-4" heels. Where would you say the dress hit the ground wearing flats? Thanks!
RTRAugust 29, 2012
Hi Han! If you are 5'2, I would suggest getting the regular length and still wearing 3-4 inch heels! I think the long may be too long on you!

Great dress, perfect fit
I rented this dress for a Black Tie event in NYC, and it was perfect! The 42L fit great, I'm 5'5" and the long size was a great length with 2-3 inch heels. It definitely runs short! The only problem is that it came with two of the sequins broken, however, I got them fixed and Rent The Runway paid for it. The event was great and I got tons of compliments!

Beautiful with some problems
This dress is gorgeous. This makes people gasp when they see it. However, on my 5'6" frame (with a booty), the $$R was so short it showed my ankles and the 44L was fairly short as well. What was odd was the the top half fit better on the 44R. The 44L was too loose in the bust and the seam coming down from the back zipper formed almost a little bit of a "ski jump" at the top of my butt. Also, one of the sewn-in cups must've become folded up during shipping because I had to try to unfold it and smooth it out without messing up the beautiful detail on the bodice.

was the Regular too short with heels on or without?

Great dress for a black tie or more formal event -- the other ladies in the photo are also wearing RTR!
I loved this dress for a black tie event but the beading is delicate so I'd treat it carefully. Also, I ordered a long and was glad I did -- I'm 5'5" without heels.

Not a great fit for ANYONE who would consider herself tall. I had both the 44 and 42 (both in Long) and they were 3-5inches too short. I even attempted it with flats and my ankles still showed. Unfortunate, because the bodice fit was perfect in the 42, and the dress is as stunning in person as the pictures indicate.
AudreyNovember 27, 2011
So if I am 5'11, the dress would be above my ankle almost?
maraDecember 8, 2011
do you think it would be an ok length for someone who is 5'6 3/4 ?
JustineDecember 10, 2011
The Long length is best for heights between 5'5-5'6 with a 2 inch heel at most!
RobynJanuary 6, 2012
I am 5'6.. what heel height should I get ?
RTRMarch 9, 2012
Hi Robyn! A 2 inch heel would work best with the long length.

Beautiful strap detail!
The length of this dress (I rented a 38R) was great without higher than 3 inch heel. I would have gotten a long had I thought of my heel height. The beading is beautiful and the mesch overlay flows very nicely. The only problem I came across was that the strap was 2 inches too long and needed to be tucked under in the back and secured with fashion tape.
BillyDecember 9, 2011
I wonder if the strap looked bulky--or pinned up? Did this ruin the look? I am 5"2'. 115 lbs.
CatherineJanuary 24, 2012
I am 5'2" and a little busty would that make it a better fit? I love that the length runs a little short most are too long for me.
RTRJanuary 26, 2012
Hi Catherine! If you are 5'2" the R length will fit you perfectly with about a 2-3 inch heel!
alanaJanuary 31, 2012
I want to order this but I'm 5'0" and I'm concerned it will be too long!
RTRJanuary 31, 2012
Hi Alana! If you are 5'0" this gown will be very long on you! You will need about a 5-7 inch heel to make the dress the perfect length!
ChauFebruary 10, 2012
you can easily do a fake hem with some needle and thread. we did that with another rent the runway dress.
AbigailFebruary 14, 2012
I am 5'2'' and I am very busty. I am wanting to wear a 5inch heel with this dress. Should I get a regular or long size?
erinFebruary 26, 2012
I am 5'7 and 110 pounds will the 38R be too short and will the 40L be too big around ?
RTRMarch 9, 2012
Hi Abigail! You should definitely get the regular size.
LindaMarch 23, 2012
I am 5'6 and 110lbs with a 32B bust. I am afraid the 38R will be too short and that the 40L will be too big in the bust. I would like to wear a heel of at least 3-4 inches.
XanessaApril 16, 2012
I'm 5'8 and 32 B bust. Would I be better off getting it 42L?
