I wore this last year to junior prom! Very Pretty!
Size worn: 40L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress fit very well, the only complaint I have is that the dress is made so that you do not have to wear a bra with it, and the wire that rounds the bust tends to stick out a little. I played with it for a little bit and it ended up looking fine. Overall a very pretty dress!

It fitted me perfectly! It's the right length for my height (4R for 5"2) and enhanced my broad shoulders and flat chests. The empire waist hid my belly well too. Love the color and flowy fabric.

Dress was great and fun to wear to a black tie wedding.
Size worn: 38
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
Dress worked beautifully for occasion. This picture is 100% RTR so things worked for every age group. The Carlo Miele dress ran small on top but worked for my body shape. I'm 5'6" and needed the long and the 38 - usually wear a size 4. Coupled with rhinestone accessories, it was great for dancing, dining, and accruing compliments!

This chiffon dress made me feel very elegant!
Size worn: 38R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This is a beautiful dress that pictures cannot do justice. The only con is that it runs small, very small. I am 5'4", 115lb and a size 2 with a 34C bust. The 34 and and 36 (which I believe is the equivalent of a 2 and a 4) were ridiculously small, I could not zip them up. Rent The Runway was great and overnighted me size 38 and 40. The 38 (size 6) fit perfectly. So I would say order 2 sizes above your normal size when ordering this dress.

Feeling confident and comfortable in a stunning dress, meeting local politicians and celebrities, and dancing the night away!
Size worn: 40L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I'm 6' 0" with a long, lanky body and a small 34C bust. This dress in size 40L was perfect on me with 2-inch heels. It fit like a glove, and I could not have asked for a better rental. It fit tight (but not uncomfortably so) on my chest, so I had no worries of any wardrobe malfunction! Because I'm pretty small-busted I didn't wear a strapless bra. I felt great in it all night long, and my husband kept telling me how beautiful I looked!

Lovely dress, very flattering, runs a bit small in the bust area. However, I am large busted, so while it fit my waist, it would not fit around my bust.

Perfect Fit. Stunning Dress. Insanely Comfortable.

This dress was insanely comfortable. I'd rent it again in an instant and I wish I owned it. I danced like crazy in this dress and felt great all night long. The fit was amazing. It's an expensive high quality dress and it shows and people definitely noticed and asked about it. Compared to my back up dress, the quality of the fabric was amazing and there was really no comparison.

Did not even zip up!
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I had read the reviews about this dress being small in the bust. Having a small bust, I thought it would be just fine. The length was ok, but I couldn't even zip it up! And this was a back-up dress that had to be overnighted to me because I found out at the last minute that the dress that I really wanted was not available. Unless you are REALLY small up top, I would not recommend this dress. It is also much more of a royal blue color than the picture depits. The only thing it had going for it was that it was light and flowy.

Very comfortable, elegant dress
Size worn: 38R
Overall fit: True to Size

As most other reviewers mentioned it does run a bit small in the bust. However, I'm a 32DD or E and ended up wearing this without a bra -which i have never done EVER in my whole life - and i was snuggly zipped up for the night and it looked great. Color is really beautfiul - i rented the necklace shown on the model and was equally happy with it.

Just like all the other reivews ITS REALLY SMALL!
Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I got this dress as a backup because I wanted a 4R but they only had a 2R available. I usually wear a 0 so I thought it might fit but it was about an inch from being able to zip up. I do not have a particularly large rib cage or chest so definitely make sure to pick your size accordingly! I was pretty sad because the dress was such a beautiful purple color!

It was gorgeous and the color was richer than it looks in the photo, however the 4R was really tight around the ribcage and I probably couldve squeezed into it but i didnt want to be uncomfortable all night so I didnt end up wearing it.

This gown is beautiful! However, as others have said, it is soooo small in the chest area! I couldn't even zip it up. (There's a zip under the arm) I so wanted to wear this dress because the color is stunning! But I had to return it unworn b/c no matter how hard I tried, there was NO way it would fit my chest area. I may reorder a larger size for a future event......that is how much I liked it!

LOVED but SOOOO small
Size worn: 38L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Ok seriously - you need to order at least 2 sizes up! I'm usually a 0-2 or XS - S in RTR dresses and I couldn't not even zip the 36 up. The 38 was a tad bit big in the bust for me but still worked great. I'm a 32/34 B and weigh 120 pds for anyone that might want measurements. Seriously - go biggers or you will be disappointed. Also if you are 5'6 or above and plan to wear heels that are at least 3 inches - get a long! The regular size was only an inch or so past my feet when I wasn't wearing heels. Overall - I loved the dress... it's just difficult to pick the right size!!

It runs quite short. Anyone taller than 5' 7" needs to size up from the 40L. It just touched the ground for me. I could have worn the 38L but it was too short.

Beautiful dress but regular length was too short!
Size worn: 40
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was beautiful. I rented it for a black tie wedding in Miami. The color (which is fairly purple) was lovely, and it was a nice light weight fabric. It fit perfectly, but it was too short! The 40 fit me perfectly, and I am usually about an 8 depending on brand. You can also wear a strapless bra underneath, which is nice. After reading all the reviews, I thought the regular length would be the way to go. I'm 5'7", and this dress was too short even with bare feet. I wouldn't even have been able to wear it with flats. Luckily, the second choice of dress I ordered fit perfectly!

Bust fits small, I'm usually a 0 but could not zip the smallest size up. Length seems to vary, the smaller size was a longer length. Overall the color is very pretty in person, not navy like the picture. Nice material.

I loved this dress. I wore it to a USMA West Point formal and it was perfect! The length was amazing. It's usually so hard for me to find dresses that are long enough to wear with decently high heels, but the long size was great. The material was super soft and comfortable to sit and dance in all night. The color is richer than the picture portrays, but is absolutely beautiful. I got tons of compliments! Definitely recommend.

This dress was stunning! Very flattering with the empire waist. More purple than cobalt.
Size worn: 38
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
I wore this to my daughter's bat mitzva which was a red carpet theme. It was exactly what I was looking for - somewhere between cocktail and formal. The fabric was a light silk crepe. The cut was incredibly flattering. The way the one shoulder started closer to the center instead of by the armpit was very attractive (sexy?). I think of myself between a 4 and a 6 so I ordered the 36L and the 38L. Didn't even try the 36 on. The 38 fit perfectly with 3-4 inch heels. There was boning so I didn't even have to wear a strapless bra. Super comfortable. I had never rented a dress before - I would absolutely do it again. What a great experience!

I rented this for a wedding and couldnt wear it because i couldnt clasp it around the bust, even without a bra. Its so very very small. I wear a 34B/32C and I was about 4 inches from being able to get this one. The dress is otherwise gorgeous and flowy and the perfect length if you are 5´5 with 3 inch heels.

I ordered a 10R and 12L and could not wear either of them. A 10L would have been perfect, but wasn't available. I am 5'6.5" and the R size dress came up past my ankles! The longer length was perfect with heels though. I usually wear a size 10 and the size 12 swallowed me up. RTR was amazing and sent me a completely new dress the day of my event that I absolutely loved.

Great Dress, beautiful color!
Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is much prettier in person. The color (lighter than regular navy, with a little purple) and detail are so pretty up but I chose not to wear it, because a dimly lit room just wasn't going to do it justice. I'm just over 5'3" and it was a little long with 4" heels but I think it would have been manageable. The 38 was snug through the chest but not uncomfortably so. It was flattering and I loved that it wasn't form fitting so spanx wouldn't be necessary. It was a really tough choice between this and the other dress I rented. I almost wish I had 2 events to go to!

Off the shoulder is oh so modern. This gown flows nicely which means it might cover some imperfection of the tummy if you get my drift. It was a little long but my 3" heels did the trick for my 5'6" self. I did have to squeeze and hold my breath to get my 36B chest in there but the top never slipped or moved which is a bonus when it comes to off-the-shoulder. I would rent it again.

Beautiful but long
Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size

I'm giving this dress 3 stars only because it's so pretty and would likely look stunning on a tall person. I'm 5'3" and was unable to wear the Regular length dress - even with 3 1/2 inch heels, it was about 4" too long. I would have been tripping over it all night. Although the RTR size guide says it is 58" long, it is actually 61"- 62" long when measured without being held up by the hanger straps. It runs a little large. I'm normally a 4, but the 2 fit well other than the length. It's a gorgeous dress - I just wish I could have worn it!
