I just love all the dresses I get from this website!
I loved the color. The fabric is a little delicate. I actually didn't get to wear it because it ended up being too small but I would definitely order this in a bigger size for a future formal event

I loved this dress - got so many compliments!
I ordered the 34 and 36 - the 34 was kind of tight around my ribs but otherwise fit perfectly! and the 36 was definitely too big

So easy and so gorg!
I usually wear a 6, and I received the equivalent of a 6 and a 4, but I ended up wearing the 4L. If you're tall you need to get L! Such a gorgeous dress, and I received so many compliments!!!!

Didn't fit
I rented this dress for a wedding. I ordered a US-equivalent 4 and 6 (as i normally wear a 4) but neither dress fit perfectly. I could have worn the 6 but the cup (on the side without the strap) was a little too big, so it just didn't look right. Beautiful dress though and would have been lovely if it fit right!

Beautiful dress.
I rented this for a black tie wedding. It fit well and was flattering, but I ended up not wearing it because the color was so bright I didn't think it was appropriate. Definitely a "look at me" dress. I would rent again for a formal party.

Beautiful dress-ran a bit small but looked lovely nonetheless.
The dress does run a bit long--I am 5-4 and wore 6 inch heels and still stepped on it now and then, so it would be good to let people on the shorter side know this.

Pretty, elegant, and original!
I got so many compliments on this dress. I am 5'2" and the length fit me (with heels of course). People kept asking where I got it and I told them RTR of course. It was a LITTLE too booby on the side without the strap but I'm sure that varies based on fit. I loved the color and the material was perfect as well. True to size, I wore a 34R and am normally between a 0 and 2.

I wore this dress to a black tie summer wedding, and it was perfect!!
The color is beautiful, and the dress is very flattering. Also it stays up without any problems! The only issue was that it was a little tight/high under the right arm. I got tons and tons of compliments. You can't go wrong!

This was a beautiful dress that I was going to wear at Prom, but ended up wearing my backup instead.
I rented this dress for Prom and ended up wearing my backup dress because it fit me better. This is a beautiful dress that mostly runs true to size, except the strap was a little bit off. The strap was a little big and made the top part of the dress a little bit unflattering for me.

LOVED IT!
This dress looked amazing! And it fit me like a glove. I'm a size 0, 5'4 and the 36 worked perfectly. I was a little worried because they didn't have a 34, which I thought would have fit me best. BUT everything worked out :) Also, because they didn't have a smaller size I was offered to pick another dress in 2 sizes for free, just in case. That was very nice of them. In the end, I still wore this dress (which I picked originally), but it was good to know I had a backup. Finally, the color is a bit darker in real life than it appears in pictures, but it's still just as beautiful!

Perfectly understated for a freshman at prom. I was told I had the best dress there!
The only thing negative I can say is that I wish this dress was slightly longer, since wearing three inch heels left the dress grazing the ground, which for some may be ideal, but I prefer my dresses longer! Other than that the fit was so perfect and comfortable.

The color of this dress really stood out, I've never gotten so many compliments!
The dress was beautiful, I think it runs a bit small as I usually wear a size 6 dress and had to wear the 40R size for this gown. The color is as vibrant in person as it looks in the images. The length was perfect with 3" high heels on, but I had to hold it up when we really started dancing.

Couldn't wear it due to designer flaw.
I am only 5'2" and the dress with 4" heels was still way too long, there is now way I could try walking in it without ripping the dress. Designer flaw: the bottom of the zipper is too bulky for the delicate material and created a bump in the fabric which is hard to remedy since I don't own the dress. If I owned the dress perhaps hemming it would get rid of the bump since the fabric wouldn't be allowed to bend so much at the ground.

The dress was beautiful on the hanger, but the fit was strange.
The color and the fabric are beautiful and rich. The fit, however, was strange. I am 5'1, 115 lbs, and a C-cup. I typically wear a size 2 or 4. This dress was too tight in the waist, too large in the bust, and the strap was really long so I would have either had to pin it or let it hang off my shoulder. I don't understand who could wear this if the waist is that small, but the bust is that large.

great dress, but didnt work
I ordered this dress 6 months in advance because I was so in love with it! I ordered the 38l and 36l. Closer to the event time, I found out neither were available anymore, and all they had left was the 38r. The dress arrived and was gorgeous. However, the zipper is located on the left side and it bulged out in certain spots and it made the entire fit a little weird. Also, I definitely needed the Long length, not the regular length. I ended up wearing my backup dress, which fit perfectly! I would try to rent this style again if the long lengths were available.

Great Dress - Lots of Compliments!
I ordered this dress for my good friend's wedding. The original dress arrived with a few snags in the fabric (not very noticeable) but I called RTRW just to let them know - the associate took it upon himself to send me a new one which arrived to me the next day by 10am..so nice! I'm more of an athletic build with a larger chest and the dress managed to give me a waist. The dress was pretty comfortable and I got TONS of compliments especially on the beautiful color. The dress was a little long but it was perfect with a high heel with a small platform. All in all, Loved it!

I got a lot of compliments on the color of the dress. Very vibrant and so comfortable!
Runs small. I'm generally on the smaller side, however, the mid section band on this dress is a tad tight. length was good and the top fit fine as well.
StephanieDecember 23, 2012
How tall were the heels you wore?
RTR CustomerDecember 24, 2012
Hi Stephanie! I would recommend wearing 4-5 inch heels with this dress is you are 5'1" like me!
NatalieMarch 19, 2013
How was the strap thing? was it kind of baggy?
RTR CustomerMarch 20, 2013
Hi Natalie! The strap should not be baggy at all! It should be comfortable and fit right around your arm.
LarissaMay 27, 2013
gorgeous on you. I'm afraid of the length being an issue (don't want to trip) so will not be renting!

Feminine fit, classic style, beautiful silk chiffon.
When my girlfriend told me that I had to find a long "Tiffany Blue" dress for her wedding, I had no idea how difficult a task it was going to be! RTR was my lifesaver! I was so nervous, as I had never rented a dress before, and this was such an important occasion. I am so glad I did! The dress was beautiful and I was the next best dressed one there, after the bride! There were some snags in the chiffon from previous rental abuse, but once I ironed it, they were much less noticeable. The con of that was that is became much longer and to dance, I had to tuck the hem in under my bust, but no one cared, it was a great rental! For a bustier woman, I recommend going a size up.

THE perfect dress!
This is the ONE. You realy feel like a goddess. Great color (I'm brunette), fits perfectly making you look thinner. Many compliments. I used with a compression high rise spandex just to guarantee a perfect smooth fitting looking from the back. Very confortable, no need for bra although I used a fashion tape as my husband is very picky with cleavages. It's seexy without being vulgar. I used with Prada silver high heels, onix&diamonds earings and bracelet, professional makeup and hair in a modern bun.

I didn't end up wearing this dress but it's an absolutely beautiful fit
Everything about this dress is beautiful. I probably should have worn this dress instead of the "Such a Sweetheart" dress by Nicole Miller but the color of this one was not right for winter and the other one was more glamorous. The fit was perfect, it was tight in a good way around the waist and the cut of the skirt was very flattering. I wish it was just a little bit longer but too short is better than too long especially at a dance.

Gorgeous dress but didn't fit well!
It's a gorgeous dress but unfortunately for me, the strap was too long and my bust could not fill in even the 34! Although big on top, the dress really squeezed my ribs and it was a tight fit. The 36 overall was slightly too big. Ended up wearing my back-up dress but I would recommend a strapless pushup bra for those not blessed with a big bust size!

Looked amazing at the Oscars 2013!
Perfect dress for a red carpet for a petite shape lime me. You WILL NEED to steam the garment before wearing it as it will arrive quite wrinkled. If you are 5'2" like me you will need very high heels to avoid tripping on the dress (very long). Got a lot of compliments from fellow red carpet gown-clad ladies. Make sure you wear the spiky bracelet and dramatic earrings to complete the look. No necklace please :)

Runs Small - Size up! Pretty Color!
I rented this for a formal event as a back up to the dress I had been eying for months. I normally wear a 2 or 4 in dresses, but the 4 was tight on me in this style. I definitely recommend sizing up or at least get a back up size that is one up from your normal dress size. The color is very pretty. This dress is perfect for prom or upcoming spring/summer weddings.

GORGEOUS color
I was unable to wear the dress, as this (8L) was my backup size and it was too big. The size I needed was out of stock and RTR sent me a beautiful replacement. I will definitely be renting this one again when my size is available. The color is incredibly beautiful, the fabric is lovely, and the length is great for tall girls!

Right when I got out of the car, another girl told me she loved my dress. I hadn't even walked into the event yet and I had already received a compliment!
I usually wear a size 4 dress but ended up actually wearing the 2 (36). They recommended anyone over 5'7 get a long, so I did. I am 5'7 1/2. Unfortunately it was a little long, even with 3 inch heels on, which made it a little difficult to walk. The only other problem I had is that the bust seemed to be a little off center/big on me, so there were a couple points throughout the night that my bra was peeking out. Could have been solved if I hadn't worn a bra but it would have been way too big around the bust then. The waist was just the right height, and the dress was very flattering, especially because of the gathering in the front. It was an absolutely gorgeous dress though and I got a ton of compliments on it, and I felt amazing in it. I never wanted to take it off!
JessApril 1, 2012
I'm also 5'7" would you recommend getting a short?
christinaApril 1, 2012
what do you mean by it runs small
RTRApril 5, 2012
Hi Jess, if you're 5'7 and would like to wear a 2 inch heel and don't mind a bit of your heel showing, wear the Regular in this style!
KatieApril 9, 2012
Jess - I'd recommend the regular length!
christinaApril 9, 2012
i ordered this dress i dont know which accesories to use for it gold or silver? and what color shoes?
RTRApril 20, 2012
Hi Christina, the dress color can match with silver or gold and you can match your shoes to the accessories or go with a neutral nude color. Live Chat a fit specialist for help choosing!

Perfect dress!
This dress was absolutely amazing!! I got so many compliments on it and it fit me like a glove. I'm 5'4 and was really worried that it would be too long but I got a regular and wore 4 inch heels and it was perfect! I also got a 36 but it was huge on me. The area from my shoulders to my chest is really small and the strap was a little long but it didn't bother me at all. It's definitely more of a sea-foam color and not a turquoise color. It was definitely worth it and I recommend it to anyone!! (:
AlexandraMarch 31, 2012
what color shoes did you end up wearing with this dress? would black work or do you suggest silver/ gold?
AmandaApril 1, 2012
Did you wear a bra with it? If so what kind of bra? Strapless?
christinaApril 1, 2012
what accesories did you wear with it ? and what do u mean the 36 was huge im about the same weight as you and ordered the 36 ha now im afraid itll be too big
SamApril 2, 2012
Alexandra - I ended up wearing silver shoes and accessories because of my blonde hair and light skin. I try not to wear gold because it tends to wash me out but either color would work really! I wouldn't personally wear black shoes but it might work!! Amanda - I wore a sticky bra! I was going to wear a strapless bra over the sticky bra but it looked really unnatural on my little frame so I took it off but it still made my boobs look amazing!! You could definitely get away with a strapless bra though. Christina - I wore silver bangles and silver chandelier earrings with silver shoes. I like my dresses to fit really snug and I tend to carry my weight in my butt and thighs so I usually end up wearing smaller sizes in dresses than my friends that are the same size as me physically. I also have a really small chest and the 36 was big there. Good luck though!

Looking for my prom dress..and I think I just found it. Thank You! Your picture really helped me make this decision. I have a small chest and wanted a dress to emphasis what little I have.. haha! Also, the sea-green color looks great I am so excited!!!
Maggie April 17, 2012
I am 5'5 and getting this dress for prom! I usually wear high heels so I was considering getting the long version, but when I take my heels off do you think it will be way too long?? Thanks for the help! xo
SarahApril 18, 2012
wow... this dress is amazing and complements your coloring perfectly! so beautiful :)
Maggie April 18, 2012
Also I think i'm a similar size to you did you get a zero or a two???
SamApril 20, 2012
Lisie - It should be fine! the inside layer is a little shorter than the chiffon but it should be fine!! Michelle - Thank you! I was really skeptical about renting a dress but it turned out so perfectly that I definitely recommend it! Definitely get two sizes, and I like my dresses to fit kind of snug so get your extra dress a size smaller just in case. Other than that you should be fine!! Caitlin - Yay! So excited to like it!! Maggie - Definitely get the regular. Sometimes I'm 5'5 and sometimes I'm 5'4 so it should be perfect for you!! My heels were 4 inches and it worked out perfectly! I got a 34, which ends up being a 2. I also got a 4 just in case but it was giant on me.
MalorieApril 23, 2012
This looks great on you. I rented the 34 but I'm really skinny. Like 105 lbs. Do you think I should buy an extra padded bra so it will fit?

Love the dress, but not on me
This dress didn't actually fit me. I ordered a size 38L and am usually a size 4 or 6. However, this was the only size available so I figured I would give it a shot. Also, the color was more greenish than turquoise. I ordered the long size and it wasn't too long on me (I'm 5'7"). I wore four inch heels when trying it on. This dress is gorgeous, but just not on me.
BethApril 17, 2012
You stated that the dress didn't fit. Was it too big or too small through the bust and waist areas?
RTRApril 20, 2012
Hi Beth-Ellen, this dress runs a bit large in the bust area but is fitted at the waist.

At prom most of the girls had the tacky embezzled cut-out dresses and I felt so beachy yet regal in mine.
I wore this to prom and I absolutely loved it. You can easily wear a convertible bra and wear one strap, I'd suggest a nude one. The color and fit are flattering and it is easy to accessorize, it is also comfortable and easy to dance in.
christinaApril 16, 2012

You look absolutely drop dead gorgeous!
The dress was absolutely gorgeous! I can't think of any other dress that I've worn/rented that got more compliments. The only thing that I didn't like was the zipper. It was super tiny and difficult to zip up at certain points. I didn't have any problems with the strap. I'm between 5'5 and 5'6 and it was a little long. It would have been perfect with heels but I'm more of a sandals girl with events like this. The color is more of a sea foam and is absolutely stunning. I rented the ShowStopper Earrings from RTR which helped to seal the deal on my look. This dress is a MUST HAVE!

Prom
I really loved this dress when i saw it online and couldn't wait for it to arrive. When it came i was a little disappointed because it was much much greener than the picture showed and even though all the reviews said it was a long dress when i put it on and wore my heels it came off the ground by like and inch and a half. And i'm not particularly tall either, so that was a disappointment. However i still liked the dress and ended up wearing it for my prom!

LOVE LOVE LOVED IT!
I wore this to my sorority formal last month and it was a great hit! I got the 46R and 44L and the 44 fit but was too tight in my chest so I went with the other one. It was so beautiful on me, I couldn't bear to take it off at the end of the night. Everyone loved my dress & I got compliments on it all night! It was a great length for my tall self and everything was too perfect. I loved that dress so much :)

Hi Akilah, wait you ordered a size 46R? Is that a US Size 14? I called RTR the other day and Emily told me they did not have a size 46, that it was a mistake... Can you help me please?? :)

I received so many compliments people really loved the dress:) thank you rent the runway
i was alittle disappointed with the fit of the dress it was large on me in the bust area the strap was also a little to loose it is a gorgeous dress though.... i rented it for my senior prom and received a ton of compliments the only thing i didnt like was the fit i had to wear a bra otherwise the bust area would be way too big and i had to use fashion tape because it kept showing my bra unfourtnatley the 34 r was out of stock when i ordered it its a very pretty color and i would recommend if you order this dress that your backup size is available when you order it.... i accessorized with silver accessories and silver shoes also the dress was really long on me i am about 5'3 and even with my 4 in heels i still had to pick up my dress and carry it alittle so i wouldnt have to trip. it is a very pretty dress and i would recommend it if you are going to a formal event because i received alot of compliments !:)

You look gorgeous! I'm almost exactly your size, so was it a bit long on you? Thanks.
RTRMay 22, 2012
Hi Rachel, the regular in this style measures 58'' from shoulder to hem (recommended for heights 5'1''-5'6''). You'll want to wear at least a 3" heel.

The color looked amazing with my eyes and complexion. People told me all night how elegant and classy I looked.
I wore this dress for my senior prom and people kept telling me that I looked like a Grecian goddess. I thought the 34 was going to be too big, but it ended up fitting almost perfectly. It was really tight around the ribcage, and kind of loose in the bust. I took cups out of another dress I had and slid them in for the night. I'm just over 5'4 and the regular length was perfect. I also tried on the 36, but it was huge. My one complaint is that when it arrived, it had a really terrible smell. I just let it air out for a day and sprayed myself with a lot of perfume. Anyways, it was very classy and elegant, and very different from the rest of the dresses at the prom. In a sea of glitter and sequins, the sea foam green silk chiffon definitely stood out.

how many inches were you heels?
RTRMay 9, 2012
Hi Malorie, we apologize your dress arrived that way, our dry cleaner detergent can sometimes have a strong smell. We have notified our warehouse to inspect all of the sizes in this style so this does not ship out in that condition again. We're happy you still enjoyed the dress!

My best friend told me I looked like a Greek goddess, and my boyfriend seemed to agree
I ordered this dress and wore it to my senior prom and absolutely loved it. Because I'm brunette, I went with gold accessories. The dress fit very comfortably, and you don't have to worry about pulling it up all night long. I'm about 5'5/5'6 and wore the regular, however I was unable to wear heels with it. If you're planning on wearing heels and don't want them to show at the bottom, I suggest getting a long. All in all my boyfriend and I loved the dress!

About what bra size do you wear? I ordered the dress in 36R too but it looks like the bust area might be too big for me.
RTRMay 14, 2012
Hi Nancy, Kaiya wears a 32C (see left side), this dress does run a bit large in the bust, so if you have a smaller bust size we recommend sizing down for your back up

The Way the dress complimented the theme of the party it was so classic, the cut and fit of the dress made me feel like a goddess.
I rented this dress for my Old Hollywood Affair birthday I am a 34/C and everywhere else I'm tiny so I was a bit worried about the fit, but it actually fit great. The color is unbelievably pretty, and went amazing with my diamond accessories. The top looked like the fabric had been rubbed a bit from the person who previously wore it, but that was my only complaint. I would definitely recommend this dress, the fit and the way it looked in photos was just stunning.

Overall a great experience, it was so easy to just have the dress arrive so that I didn't have to worry about finding anything.
I rented this for my sorority's formal and it was perfect. Almost any type of accessories work for it and it looked great. If you get the Long one you may need pretty high heels. I'm 5'8" and it would drag a bit when I didn't have my heels on. The bust was also a little big. It's made for more of a C size, so keep that in mind if you're smaller.

So many compliments on the dress and not having to worry about spilling on it (insurance)!
I loved this dress so much! The picture doesn't really do it justice because it hangs better in person and it just has simple elegance. I wore it for prom and when it arrived I didn't think it would zip up, but with some help it fit perfectly once i got it up. I had so many people tell me the dress was their favorite of the group because it really does look expensive/red carpet and is just very classy. It also worked well with my flat-ish figure and made me look more refined rather than just flat-haha. I paired it with coral jewelry which really made it pop I thought. The only complaint is the zipper hangs weirdly and pops out on one side, we ironed it down but it still looked a little funny.
