I'm 5'4" and wore about 4.5" inch heels. I may have considered doing the long. The dress however was beautiful. I got a lot of compliments. The beading is really pretty and it is a flattering dress.

Fabulous dress that fit comfortably!!!! When ordering, I was concerned about the length.I'm 5'2" and wore 3" heels---however, upon arrival no hem tape was necessary. I think if your above 5'4"---you should probably order longer length.

Beautiful AND comfortable! No tugging or adjusting needed the entire evening, even after inebriated dancing! I'm 5'4"", 120 lbs and the 38 R fit perfectly with 3" heels. I also loved the slit up the side.

I rented this as my back up dress so I did not end up wearing it. I was torn between this and my primary dress. It fit perfect and looked beautiful. I will rent this as my primary dress one day!

I rented this as my back up dress for a black tie affair. I was torn between this and my original pick...although I didn't select this one, I will certainly rent this in the future as the embellishment on the side is very beautiful and unique.

Fantastic Service

Size worn: 38R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I ordered this dress in a size 38R & 40R. the 38R fit perfectly everywhere EXCEPT in the length. The regular length was too short to even where flats...I am 5'3.75'' However, the customer service was phenomenal. I recieved 2 new dress within 24 hours. Also, i could not return the dresses on time because Mardi Gras Day is a postal holiday in New Orleans & they were totally ok with it. I would defintely recommend RTR to anyone & have been doing so.

Best Dress EVER!!

Size worn: 42L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this to my prom! I got so many compliments from it, and I saved so much money! I got two sizes that 42L and the 44L. The 42 fit so much better. It was slightly tight around the mid section but that;s that way it was designed. I'm 5'5 and wear a 36B. I wore 3 inch shoes with this dress and it barely showed my feet. Overall I thought this dress was amazing! I got to wear an Italian dress that is worth $1,000. I don't think anyone else at my prom could say that!

All the compliments I received wearing the dress and just how great it looked on my body.

I loooooooooooved this dress. I wasn't sure what size dress I wear because I have a very large bust and a smaller waist so my size always varies, so I ordered a size up in case. It was a little too big but it still worked out very nicely with some bobby pins. It was extremely flattering to my figure and I got compliments on it all night. I definitely recommend this one. I got the 10R and it was long enough with my 4 and a half inch heels. LOVED IT!

Megan being so sweet and doing everything she could to make sure the rental was a success even though the dress arrived in less-than-stellar condition.

Size worn: 38R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress to a very formal wedding and it was perfect for the occasion. Very comfortable (the fabric had a bit of give and wasn't too heavy) and stayed in place all night, no tape on the side needed. I wore very small heels, only about 1" and the dress just grazed the floor so it's a perfect length for someone short. My only complaint is that the dress came to me a bit of a mess, with jewels on the side missing and falling off, strings everywhere which I had to snip to look presentable. However, Megan was extremely friendly and helpful and had other dresses shipped to the destination just in case I wanted to wear one of those instead. The others didn't fit quite right so I wore this dress anyway because it looked SO fabulous and hoped nobody would notice the missing jewels. I got several compliments on this dress and would definitely recommend it for a formal event!

Im 5'2" and i loved the dress i ended up getting a regular length dress but if you're wearing heels 4 inches or up i defiantly get the longer size. The dress was beautiful and was light weight and easy to dance in. I defiantly recommend it

I didn't like it as much as the picture. Its also very short. Im only 5'2" and it was still short and I wore 2" heels. It made it seem less formal. Good fit overall though. Just was a little underwhelmed by it

A little short for tall shoes, but beautiful. It is a really nice fabric and I felt so lovely in it. I got this for a wedding, but ended up wearing my back up dress because I felt too dressed up? But I would definitely recommend this to everyone.

The dress was amazing!

Size worn: 42R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress fit me perfectly, and the length was just right. I wore 2" heels. If you're any taller than me (5'3"), I'd recommend getting the longer length. It had padded cups, but I wore my own bra anyways. It was very comfortable, and I danced in it a lot. The only set back was that the tag at the back of the dress stuck out, but that was easily fixed with a safety pin. I loved this dress!!!!

Comfortable and elegant dress that hugs your curves perfectly without feeling or looking tight. The dress is quality and well made so it highlights your assets and hides imperfections especially in the mid section. I loved this dress and I would definitely recommend it.

Attend an Omega for Obamba 2012 Ball in Washington DC, the gown arrived right on time! I also rented a back up gown but it was not eye catching like the I wore. I wish I could have rented a 6L. I have just recently lost weight and still losing weight, so I think a 6L would have worn better around the waist. I am 5'-3" and wore 4"heels so you saw my shoes (didnt like that too much). I will be renting again very soon from Rent the Runway ... told all my friends about it!

The length was perfect. I am 5'2" and wore 3 inch heels. The dress fit really well except around the bust area, where it was a little loose. I am a 32 B so I put on a push up bra and it helped hold it in place better. Overall I was really happy with it.

Overall, pretty dress

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I liked the sillouette this dress gave me, but it runs just a little short, which I didn't expect to be an issue since I can typically wear petite or regular sizes. I didn't have any issues with the rhinestones, like others had described, but I wished there had been just a little more structure to the top, as I am a little bustier. I felt like I needed to pair this with a strapless bra.

Trying it on in the showroom was the best part. My mom and I went together!

Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
It was a beautiful dress and everything about it looked great. Since the 4R had been damaged beyond repair, they only sent me the 4L, which I had tried on in in their showroom (definitely make a showroom appt. if you are in the NY area). It was a little long, so at times I had to hold it. Otherwise, it was totally great and I have no complaints.

My only complaint about this dress was that it ran too short in the front, so I wish I had gotten the long. Other than that, it fit great and looked great. It was very comfortable, and the fabric had stretch, so i didn't feel like i was suffocated in there all night. Great pick!

Terrible

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Looked like someone took scissors to the bottom of the dress and did their own hem job. I'm surprised it wasn't taken off the rental rotation because of how bad it is. The side cinch didn't lay flat. It looked like a pillow on my side, like a bad dry cleaning job? Anyway RTR customer service tried to replace the dress, but lots were checked out and so I received a refund instead which was fine. Thank goodness for my back up dress. Wasn't what I hoped for, but at least it was workable.

The dress itself was nice. It had some stretch to it but I found it to be too short on me even though I ordered the long. This was my backup so it was no big deal. I probably will not rent this one again.

I wore this dress for prom. It was classy and simple yet chic.

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Overall fit was perfect; however, I would recommend people to go size up because I usually wear size 4, but this one size 6 perfectly fit me. Perfect amount of beads decoration on the left brings the cuteness. This dress shows the side waist shape and also the open cut on the left side of the leg brings the sexiness. It might look simple but with the little help of accessorizing, it will be perfect!

I received many compliments on this dress. It was for a formal Christmas party. It worked great!!

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Fit was true to size. One suggestion- I am 5'4", ordered the Regular and the dress was short with any heel higher than 1-2 inches, so I would suggest a Long if you want to wear higher heels. Very beautiful dress was very satisfied!
