Gorgeous dress, beware of you are thick waisted
Beautiful dress, more gold than in the picture. I didn't get to wear it to my vow renewal (we both got the flu!), but I did try it on. It has nice support, but I am thick waisted and it smushed my girls and gave me less of a waist than I already have. I read reviews and thought that might happen, but was willing to take the chance. Had I not gotten sick, I would have worn it anyway. It is really gorgeous!

Felt very feminine and simply gorgeous in this dress. Worn for wedding photo shoot.
Runs large, but fabrics is beautiful and comfortable. Would rent it once again.

Beautiful Dress, TOO BIG
Wanted to wear this so badly! It looked really good but it was big in the stomach area. Looked wrinkled because it was big.

This is the most amazing dress! I almost kept it. Beautiful, classy, fits like a comfy sweater!
The fit is perfect and comfortable in every way! So classy; beautiful fabric. Hits the floor in just the right length (no tripping). I wore it to a black tie event in Las Vegas and had many compliments on how stunning the dress was.

Elegant dress, rich material... a total knockout!
I wore this to my boyfriend's Battalion Ball and was so happy with the fit, color, material, cut... basically everything about it! I wore at least 3" heels and it was a very long dress, but since I'm only 5'4 I'll bet that makes it a decent choice for taller ladies as well. Highly recommend!

Not right for my skin tone
I didn't wear this dress in the end, but it was beautiful with the gilt elements. As other reviewers noted, the fabric is quite stiff and thick, but I might have been able to overlook that -- the determining factor for me was the color, which looked awful with my skin tone (I'm a strawberry blonde red head with pinkish white skin. The golden yellow was not a good look.) Maybe best suited for darker skin tones like the model.

Did not wear dress
As other reviewers stated dress was a bit boxy in fit in midsection. I am 5'8", 34B, and 149lbs. This dress was a bit large in chest but tight in abdomen and hips. Great material, color, and construction though. Length was not that great in that I would have had to wear kitten heels. Sadly had to go back unworn.

I wore this as a bridesmaid in my brothers wedding.
The bride chose a variety of gold dresses from RTR for us bridesmaids to pick from. I chose this one. It fit perfectly snug for a strapless dress so I didn't need to pull it up all the time. It was very long so super high heels required. I wore a regular strapless bra and used fashion tape to stick the dress to the bra. It had a nice metallic sheen that wasn't overwhelming. It was a lot of fun to wear. The material is pretty thick and Kinda felt like snow pants so I was really warm. Probably better worn in a winter wedding instead of an outdoor wedding in August- but it looked nice!

The fact that I was wearing a $3,000 dress for only paying the price of $70 was amazing.
Many people can be nervous that the dress cannot be hemmed but I did not have that much of a problem with it. I just wore bigger heels because I'm short. One issue that I had was that when I went to order my dress they didn't have my size so I ordered a zero and it was extremely tight across my chest the entire night, I wish that I would've been able to try the two. But I still looked like a million dollars in this dress. I would suggest reserving your dress and that extra size way ahead of time so that you can definitely have it. Thanks RTR.

Perfect Touch of Class
This dress was so gorgeous and sophisticated! I wore it to a breast cancer benefit with a speakeasy theme. It was a little big around my tummy, hips, and legs - I didn't order a backup size because there wasn't another one available, but ideally it would have been great to have worn a 0. I'm also super short, so it was very long on me, but when I wore it with 4-inch heels and wore a petticoat under it, it was perfect. Though the dress is kind of heavy, unlike many of the other reviewers, I didn't really feel uncomfortable or hot, but I also didn't do a lot of dancing. I will probably never get to own a dress as beautiful and expensive as this one - I really enjoyed my first experience with RTR and look forward to working with them again.

I have never in my life felt so beautiful! Not even on my wedding day! So many compliments!
This dress is beautiful! In person it is a beautiful gold with great details, although it looked more white on the website. The material is great and I could easily wear it all night. No issues with the chest falling (didn't have to tug all night!) and I'm 5'7" and the length was perfect! Seriously, people are still emailing me telling me how beautiful I was and how stunning the dress was. I will definitely use RTR again, and, heck, may even get this dress again just to wear around while I run errands!

I attended the 2015 Oscars, and I felt like an absolute princess in this gown!
Because I am short, the dress was a little too long for me, even with 4.75" heels! However, I made it work and felt like a princess at the Oscars, and I received many compliments, even from celebrities! I am glad I ordered a size 0 because this fit nicely against my petite frame. My normal dress size is a 2, and if I had ordered this size, it would have been too big on me. The one downfall is that when I walked up stairs to attend an Oscar-party, this was difficult to do because the fabric is not loose and the train is pretty heavy. I had to lift my dress up a little in order to not fall while walking up the stairs. In essence, the gown is lovely and it fit me perfectly. It even showed off my little shape. :-) Thank you Rent The Runway for making my night spectacular!

Loved it!
I usually wear a size 2 and I ordered both the 2R and the 0R after reading some reviews that this dress ran a bit large. I ended up wearing the 2R and it fit perfectly. I loved this dress and got so many compliments on it!

This dress was amazing! I wish I could have worn it!
This dress was everything the pictures puts it out to be, unfortunately the only down size was that it was too short. I am 5'6" and there was no way I could even wear flats with it, it was just too short. So make sure to measure the length of the hem from the point it tells you too, I missed that detail! Other than that, the fit was amazing, I wore the size 10, typical for me, it was a little tight in the chest area, but I am also a 36DD up there, so most dresses have that usual problem. Other than that, I would recommend wearing this to your next fancy night out! Stunning, and absolutely flattering on!

Pretty, but too long
Rented this dress for my niece's prom. The dress is very pretty, but heavy and very long. The bottom of the dress was dirty and worn from it dragging on the ground from previous renters. Ended up sending it back early for a store credit.

Gorgeous dress, the picture doesn't even come close to how pretty this dress is in person HOWEVER if you are anything bigger than a C this dress is not for you. Unfortunately for me this gown zipped all the way up until it go to the bust area :( such a shame I really wanted to wear this 1

Beautiful but way too long
This dress is gorgeous, but if you're my size (5'2 on a good day), this dress will be way too long unless you have EXTREMELY high heels. I'm a high-heel lover (nothing less than 4 inches please), and this dress still didn't work. Such a bummer.

The dress is beautiful and well made.
I wore a 0L because the fit of the 2R was off on the waist. The chest can be a little constricting as well as overall shape of the dress, it's fitted. I still danced and had a great time. I got tons of compliments. Accessories paired with dress were pearl earrings and pearl bracelets.

Compliments galore!
I loved this dress from the moment I saw it. I had to have it even knowing it was only available in Long. The dress is true to size. I normally wear a 0R yet the extra fabric from the 0L just added a train when worn with my highest heels

Gala in Carolina Herrera!!!
I wore this to a Gala and loved it! I did not want the night to end! The dress fit me perfectly and I loved the corset since i didn't need to pull my dress up- it stayed in place. I wore 4 inch heels with it and the dress was at an ok distance from the floor.

Stunning gold and cream dress!
The dress doesn't really have a waistline so it can appear and little boxy on some people. The train on the back is stunning and it would make a beautiful wedding gown. Rent this one if you want someone different.

This made my rehearsal dinner unforgettable. I felt like a queen with the train on this dress.
I wore this dress for our rehearsal dinner. I felt like a million bucks in it. I wanted to choose a dress that would stand out since I was the bride to be. This dress was perfect!! I had so many comments while wearing this dress. I ordered the 10L and the 8. This dress is a little long but is perfect with heels. Rent it!!

Unfortunately I wanted this dress but it had damage to it, so they sent me a different one. :( RTR was great about it though they let me pick any dress I wanted as a replacement, with no limit. That made me happy.

LOVE this site, but not this dress:(
I absolutely fell in love with this dress, after the one I originally wanted for my senior prom wasn't available for the dates I needed it for. I usually wear a 4, but a 4 was unavailable and based on other reviews I thought a 6 would fit perfect. Even though I ordered the long it was WAYY too long. They didn't have my back up size (4R) available, so they let me rent another gown for a really good price. Thank goodness I did! The material on this one is very heavy and there's just, well, a lot of it. In the pictures, the dress looks more white and gold, but actually it's more beige with a lot of gold. However, the service this site offered was incredible and my back up dress is absolutely perfect. Good luck if you order this dress! Just keep the sizing and length in mind!

This prom dress was perfect. I fell in love with it as soon as I tried it on. It fit perfectly!
The dress my my hourglass figure look amazing and me and my date matched perfectly even though we were a little scared that it wouldn't. I received compliments all night especially last night. I felt beautiful. This dress really does run true to size. And the inner corset was a plus. I wish I could've kept it. But someone else will be able to wear it and experience how I felt wearing this beautiful dress.

This dress is amazing! I received countless compliments. The fabric and color photograph beautifully
I tend to wear a 4, but it was too tight across my chest. I wore the 6 which was a little loose through my waist, but was comfortable to move around in. There is a slight train that people occasionally stepped on and the trumpet fit can be awkward if you aren't used to it. As VP for a local organization, I had to be photographed often and speak on stage. This dress was elegant and luxurious without being over the top. It looks great in all lighting. RTR provided awesome service to me since my original dress was unavailable. Can't wait for my next rental!!!

I didn't wear it, but it had potential
The event was a Gala to raise money for Juvenile Diabetes (JDRF). I liked the dress and it zipped up just fine, but the torso on the dress was an inch too long for me so it bunched. Since it didn't lay well it didn't have a good "fit look" to it on me. I tried it on with 3 inch heels and it was probably close to an inch too long on me. It has a built in bustier so it doesn't require a bra with it as you feel supported and the dress doesn't shift either.

obsessed. This dress is perfect and I wish I could wear it to every event I attend.
This dress was a little tight around my bust, but other than that fit perfectly. (I am a 32D) I am 5'10 and wore the long with 4 inch heels, and the length was perfect.

Fit like a wedding gown!
I rented a 4R and a 6R. The top was snug on the 4R but the overfit was perfect. I'm 5' 8" and wore 3.5 in heels. The length in the front was a few inches off the gown and my shoes were showing. Rent the Long if you want the hem to touch the floor. I didn't have issues dancing in it or with anyone stepping on the short train. It has an inner zipper and and outer zipper and I didn't tug at the dress at all to keep it up.

Gorgeous and easy to style.
The photos of this dress do not do it justice. The fabric is really thick and beautiful, the gold looks extra special. I wore it with a statement necklace, which is definitely needed on pale skin, since otherwise this dress might wash you out. It was easy to wear and accessorize, and is definitely very formal.

One of my favorites
Where do I start and what to say that others haven't said already :) It was such a comfortable dress to wear because I didn't have to worry about anything other than going up and down the stairs.. Yes, you are constricted but the rest of it makes up for that I loved it and wished that I could keep it. Yes, it was long but I love long dresses. Picture was taken with no heels on and in size 10L (Thank you RtR for the back up size!). I fit in both 8L and 10L. 10L was a bit more big on top but I didn't mind. I had to take off the bra to zip up the last half inch of the 8L size. A friend said that it looked better in 8L and I liked the extra room in 10L. Fabric felt so rich and thick, I felt beautiful in it. Wish that I could rent it again just to wear it more!
