Feeling like a princess!
I wore this dress to a black tie wedding in Los Angeles. I received compliments from every person I spoke to. The gown moves beautifully, and I really felt like a celebrity (or princess!) sashaying around in a sea of ruffles. It was a really flattering fit which created an hourglass figure and was easy to dance in. I usually wear an 8, and the 6 was a touch large, I would go with a smaller size unless you have a very large bust. You will not regret this gown girls...

I love this dress so much, but do you think it would be way too formal for my sister's garden wedding in march? Thank you!
LorenaDecember 29, 2011
I think this dress is perfect for a garden or beach wedding, you should get it!
AliceJanuary 22, 2012
Agreed, I would totally wear this to an outdoors wedding!
TaraJanuary 28, 2012
What type of shoes did you wear with this dress? I'm 5'9" and I'd like the dress to touch the floor or cover my shoes. Thanks!

I felt like a celeb
The dress is soft, beautiful, delicate and glamorous. It was a bit long but I expected that since I am short. (I had to hold it up all night thats the only reason I took off a star) The fit was precise... leaning a little on the constricting side but I thought it was worth it instead of risking a wardrobe malfunction. I received many compliments. Short girls be prepared to wear a tall heel!
MeganJanuary 27, 2012
how long was the dress on you? i'm 5'3'' how high of heels do you think i would need?
JoyceJanuary 27, 2012
same question for me! except i'm 5'2"
RTRJanuary 27, 2012
Hi ladies If you are 5'2"-5'5" you are able to wear any of R length gowns with a 3-4 inch heel!

RTRMarch 9, 2012
Hi Helen! You could wear a 2-3 inch heel with this dress!

I'm 5'5" 34-24-34 and will wear 4 or 5 inch heals. Long or regular?

xoxoxo RTR!
I wore this to a semi-formal work event and could not have been happier. This dress is very flattering and you can even consume a meal while wearing it and not feel self-conscious all night afterwards! Full disclosure - I did find myself hiking it up every once in a while whenever standing/walking around, but I figure that is probably the case with every strapless dress. You can't go wrong with this dress - I received lots of compliments!

Beautiful, flattering dress
I rented this dress for a black tie Mardi Gras themed party and loved it! It looked just like it looks on the model. I normally wear a size 6 and wore the 40R. It was a little big, but worked just fine. I think the 38R would have been perfect, so this dress runs a little large. I'm 5'6", wore a 4 inch heel, and the R length was perfect - L would have been way too long for my height. It is such a beautiful dress with a unique print, and I got compliments all night long. The ruffles are very flattering and have a slimming effect, especially if you are trying to hide any tummy flaws. And I totally agree with the other reviewer that you can eat whatever you want at the event and still feel very comfortable in this dress. My husband loved it and I was sad to send it back!

I LOVED IT! 5 Stars!!
I wore this to my high school prom! I was originally planning on ordering a size 4L (38L), but they only had the size 2L (36L) available. I was a little hesitant but it fit PERFECTLY. The dress is much more vibrant in person! In the web ad photo, it looks more grey-ish blue, but in person its more of a deep royal blue. Absolutely gorgeous. I would even consider purchasing this dress because of how gorgeous it was. Definitely recommend it!!!!!!!

The dress fit, it arrived on time, and the mystery bling the staff picked out matched perfectly! I felt like a princess
I wore this dress to an outside wedding at a Zoo. I was very nervous about the sizing, but it fit like it was made for me! One small side note, it does have a side zipper, so if you are hoping to squeeze in, it can present some challenges. I ordered the 36L and the 38R and both fit, but I went ahead with the 36L since it was a bit longer (but either would have worked for my height). The fabric is absolutely gorgeous!

I wish I owned this one!
I wore this dress to a friend's wedding and wanted something nice and flowy. I was a little nervous that it would be too big and fall down because I usually wear a 32. When I tried it on, it actually took some work to zip up, which was great because there wasn't even a chance of it falling down. It hugs your ribs very tightly! If you have a bigger chest, I'd recommend getting a size up! I got the longer version because I wore really high heels - it perfectly covered my shoes, so if you're planning on wearing 4/5 inchers, definitely go with the long. I 100% recommend getting this one if you're going to a formal event/wedding, trust me, you will look stunning.

Beautiful!
I rented this dress for a July wedding (106 degree day). I had read the dress was much better in person and it did not disappoint. The blue is a deep blue and the material is silk with a very flattering fit. My only complaint was the zipper was difficult to zip and being larger chested (took an extra 10 min just to get it to finally zip) did not fit well in the top (the back up size was not available). However, this is a very comfortable and flattering dress choice!

Gorgeous, light dress
Fit perfect. Wore to an outdoor wedding on a 90-degree day and was cool the whole evening. Very light. The dress hangs just right - no awkward bulges even with all the flowing layers. I would rent this dress again. Also, the regular length with a 3" inch heel was perfect for me (5'3").

THIS DRESS WAS AMAZING! I wish I could keep it. I got stopped by people just to tell me how great I looked, and I'm sure a large part of that was the dress!
I loved this dress, it had definitely been my favorite of all the rental so far, and one of the most amazing dresses I've ever worn! Strangely, though, the 34R was too snug (as in, I couldn't bend for fear the zipper would break) around the rib cage/boob area which never happens to me (I don't have big boobs and I'm under 100 lb!!), so for comfort's sake, I wore the 36R! Everywhere else, the dress is very generously sized, and the tiered layers are both flattering and would hide anything from a baby bump to eating too much wedding cake. You don't need a bra in this if you choose a snug-fitting dress up top, it has molded cups that are padded and comfy. I wore a Nu-bra just because the 36 was a little loose. I was able to move and dance in it freely. Word of caution to fellow shorties--I am 5' 1'' and I wore 4'' heels, and it was still SUPER long, probably about a foot too long without heels, and I was so scared I would get grass stains or tear the dress. Solved the problem by using several strategically placed safety pins in the polyester-like underlayer of the dress to hike it up about a foot. Granted, the dress didn't look as pretty, but as I was hiking all over a golf course for wedding photos and doing lots of dancing, it worked out. If you are just standing and sitting around, it would be fine at normal length. The silk, the cut, the print and everything else truly makes you feel glamourous and I got so many compliments on the dress. The blue print is actually darker than it appears in the photo, but I liked it better that way. Also, I attended an outdoor wedding at night, it was pretty chilly, and all the silk layers kept me warm with just a little shrug (added bonus). You definitely want to rent this!!! And, I was so glad I took advantage of the free second size. Thanks, Rent the Runway!

Amazing!!
I figured this dress would be beautiful (and it is!) but I was really surprised by how FLATTERING it is! Really emphasized my hourglass shape. Becuase I'm shorter than the model, the waist hit lower on my body (closer to my natural waist . . .the model looks like the dress is a bit more of an empire waist) that really highlighed the smallest part of me. The ruffles are light and fall gracefully, I was a bit worried the extra fabric might make me look bigger, but not the case at all. The dress strikes the perfect balances between looking dressed up but effortless all at the same time. I will DEFINITELY rent this one again!

mixed feelings
This dress is gorgeous ... and while I did get several compliments during a beach wedding (layers are perf for this) .. I have to say some of the details made it not fun to wear all night. As other reviewers noted - it ran extremely small in the rib cage at one point. The 34 would have been perfect but I couldn't zip it. The 36 was then too big/loose in the top and the top of the dress rolled over (so the inside showed) and I kept on pulling up the dress all night. The boning was also not right on the non-zipper side of the dress causing it to do this weird pucker. It was fine but not perfect.

best dress ever.
I want to buy this dress. This is how much i loved it. Everyone at the wedding that I went to complimented me on this dress, even the bride! I didn't bother wearing a strapless bra, and I didn't have to pull the dress up the whole night, even with all the dancing and running around. I love love love this dress. I wore pretty 4" heels with this dress, and I'm 5'7. My boyfriend couldn't keep his eyes off of me. It looks the best when you're twirling around on the dancefloor. This is my most favorite dress from RTR! hands down!

great, but TINY around ribcage
it's beautiful, and i so wanted it to work, but it's absolutely tiny in the ribcage. a shame because it fit so beautifully everywhere else. i guess that's why, in a perfect world, you'd buy a size up and have it tailored. if i only i could've bought it. but truly, for the itty bitty, it's gorgeous!!

This was a gorgeous dress for a city wedding in the winter! I'm very tall and like when dresses cover my feet and this did just that and the L length worked very well! It is a unique dress that will make you stand out! Loved it!

Love this dress - fits like a glove. Warning for all the short ladies – this dress is a little long even with 3" heels, so if you plan on dancing, this dress might not be your best choice.

GORGEOUS!!! A perfect gown for a breezy, waterside affair.
I rented this gown for my rehearsal dinner, held at a venue on Miami's Biscayne Bay. I thought I would need the 34R (size 2) as I usually wear a size 2, but the 36R (size 4) fit like a glove. I wore tall, 4 1/2" heels. I received so many compliments throughout the evening, many commenting that I looked like I was floating/gliding as I walked.

I've rented it twice and would rent it again!
This dress is just plain gorgeous. The first time I rented it was for a Sorority formal. I felt gorgeous and in my opinion, I had the best dress there! The second time was just recently for the Navy Ball in Florida. It went perfect with my husband's dress whites and was perfect for the location. I got thousands of compliments! It's extremely comfortable and easy to move in. It's not restrictive, and is extremely flattering. I'd say it overall runs small, but as I have large hips and small breasts, the top was a little big on me. I'd recommend this dress to everyone I know of all shapes and sizes!

I was really nice being able to have this dress as a back up, glad my main dress didn't fall through
I really wasn't sure what size to wear, so I guess that is my fault, But it ran very small on me, the zipper wouldn't even close. I believe the length was fine, I'm just so glad I got this as my backup and that the dress I wanted to wear worked out fine.

I felt like I was floating around the wedding!
I loved this dress and received many compliments at the wedding. The dress is soft, feminine, and you will most certainly feel like a princess as you saunter through the room. I wore heels with the dress and highly recommend doing so if you are not that tall (the hem will fall to the floor). The only downside to this dress is that it's not that easy to dance. I had to hold the dress up in order to dance, but for a cocktail party or a different event, it would have been perfect!

I can't believe how many compliments I got on this dress!
Hi girls. This dress is even prettier in person. The colors, the fabric, the cut --simply gorgeous. It definitely runs big, and it runs LONG. At this point in time, I was about 145 pounds, wearing an 8/10, have a 36D bust, and I am 5'2. I wore 4 inch heals and the dress was still a good 3 or 4 inches too long. If I were to rent again, I would get a size smaller and would definitely get the Petite length. Fabulous dress and people kept complimenting me on it and...asking to touch the material...funny!! I would highly recommend this dress - wearing it in the perfect size at the right length..it's sure to be ultra comfortable (forgiving) and show stopping.

I had SO many people come up and say "Oh hey! I totally didn't recognize you!"
Gorgeous dress! The material is silky and very flowy - it's so delicate I was a little stressed out about ripping it. I ordered both the 38R and 40R - ended up wearing the 40 because the 38 fit my bust strangely. In the end, I wish I had worn the 38 as the dress seemed to relax as the evening went on and I found myself pulling it up frequently. The 40 was also a bit long for me so I had to wear heels (which meant I was holding it when my feet got tired and I gave in to flip flops). The dress really is beautiful and I got a ton of compliments but I would have changed into a shorter dress for dancing that fit a bit better.

I loved wearing this dress! I was super comfortable and the length (I got the long) was perfect with my 3" heels. I would definitely rent this one again! The only thing I would note is that the bust of the dress was a little loose for me even with a strapless, lightly padded bra.

Gorgeous dress, moden, fresh with nautical feel
I had rent this dress because I wanted to have professional picture for me and I liked how the mood of this dress was uplifting and how the print was taking me of out of a maussade winter . It has nice flow too. It runs a tad small its really French sizing, The 36 felt like it sized like a 0 not a 2. Definitely recommend this item. gorgeous!

Dress was pefect length but a little snug up top. I am usually a 34B but ended up wearing the 36.
I wore this dress to my husband's uncle's 60th Black Tie Formal Birthday Bash. I received so many compliments on the dress. People liked the colors as well as the fabric and how it fit on me. I am 5'7" and did get the long size, which was perfect with heels. I wore bright blue sparkle heels and long dangly earrings with it. I would recommend this dress for a spring/summer wedding or any formal affairs. I also used double sided tape to keep the dress from falling up top. I am usually a 34 bust, but I ordered the 34 and 36 and the 36 fit better on me.

This dress is gorgeous!
I wore this dress for my daughters wedding and received so many compliments. It was an outdoor wedding in Austin, TX and I walked her down the isle. the fabric is beautiful, the ruffles are elegant and the dress photographs beautifully. The only thing I would have changed would have been to go up one size, it took two people to get me into the dress because of the bust! Once I was in the dress, I didn't want to take it off. I felt beautiful and confident and was so happy with my choice. You will not regret renting this dress!

ugh this dress... nope, wasn't having it.
this dress was so gorgeous, but such a let down when i finally zipped myself up and had a wrestling match to get it around my ribcage to pull it up, then to consequently have my chest get totally flattened out. had to return it and get an emergency back up style overnight shipped for my senior prom, thank god i was able to pull that miracle out of thin air. and i thought the white would be brighter, but it was kinda dingy over all. thank heavens for the exchange option!!

Beautiful Dress + Lots of Compliments! But had to size up because the bust is so tight.
I ordered the size 4L and 6L (36L and 38L). I am usually a size 4 and am quite flat-chested, but this dress didn't even zip up past my bust! I was surprised and went with the size 6 instead, which was a bit too loose and hard to dance in because I would slip out of it. It's an empire waist, too, so the bust is really the only size concern. I wore flats and it was the perfect length - just brushing the floor.

Gorgeous fabric and color, absolutely beautiful movement when walking and dancing!
I rented this dress for my daughter, Grace, to go to her first prom. She is 15, 5'6", 34B/C, with an athletic build. She wears a 4 or a 6 and we ordered both the 36R and 38R. She ended up wearing the 38R, but could have done either. She wore 4 1/2 inch heels and the dress was perfect length. We used the fashion tape that RTR graciously sent along to fasten down the top of the dress so it would not roll over. No bra was necessary. She is a dancer, so she wanted something that was beautiful and that she could dance in the whole night---this was absolutely perfect.

Very feminine...
I attended a Formal Society dance...and thought this dress looked fresh compared to so many formal dresses I've seen. I asked for the size 40 and 42 R...and although both fit, the 40 was tight on my bust...and the 42 was big on my bust, but I safety pinned the side of the bodice, and for the most part, it worked well. Did have to continually pull the front up because the fabric tended to turn down..(I suppose after much use, that shouldn't be a surprise.) Thanks RTR for sending the double sided tape! The dress flows very well, and as others have suggested...you don't have to worry about it fitting your waist. I wore a colorful jeweled necklace with it(predominately blue) and received compliments on my look all night. It's a very feminine dress and I'd recommend renting it if you don't want to look like everyone else!

Pretty color, different style, elegant and comfortable
It was a great dress, but for some reason it bowed out on the top part on the sides, but my arms were down so you couldn't really see it, but it did it on both sizes that I tried on. I'd make sure it's "fixed" before I'd rent it or ask them, otherwise it was great, different and fun. I'm 5'9 1/2" and I could wear 2" heels with the R size.

Very pretty
The dress is beautiful and I wanted to wear it but it was way too small. I usually wear a 32, but I ordered the 34 thinking that going one size up would be sufficient. I could barely zip it up. I'm sure the size 36 would have been perfect. I may rent it again in the bigger size.

Too Small, Darker than in photos
I had my eye on this dress for a long time. When I rented it, it was too small. The picture makes the print look white or cream and blue, but instead the dress has a dirty dark beige. I did not like this dress and would not rent it again in a larger size.

Very beautiful dress
The band right under the bust was very tight relative to the rest of the dress.

It is stunning
Such a beautiful dress. Fit perfectly. It was a bit windy outside and I looked like a demure marilyn monroe. It moved effortlessly and beautifully in the wind and caught every eye on the dock.
