Gorgeous, but ran too small for me!
As other reviewers had noted, it definitely runs a size small. I normally wear a 4, so tried to order a 6 as a backup but it wasn't available at the time. The length would have worked, but I unfortunately was not able to squeeze into the 4. The dress itself is stunning though, so I look forward to trying a 6P in the future!

Loved it! The back was gorgeous - I would buy it.
Tight in the bust and I am not a large busted woman. Loved it. So many compliments that night. Fun to dress in. Would definitely rent again.

Runs very small - couldn't zip
This dress is beautiful, but unfortunately I couldn't wear it. I'm normally a size 0R but that size wasn't available so I went with the 2R. The dress was so tight around my rib cage I couldn't zip it up! Not even close!

the dress moves beautifully, it flows
the dress is very narrow around the ribs and hard to zip up, it's also quite long so I had to get very tall shoes to keep it from dragging on the floor. overall, runs very small to size. I'm usually a 0P and in this I was a 4R (barely). Still, the most gorgeous dress!

The back of the dress is very pretty.
I did not end up wearing this dress. I loved the detail on the back. It fits pretty well and is comfortable. It would seem more appropriate for an event where you don't want to be too flashy.

Dress has unbelievably beautiful back--comfortable and classy!
I didn't have trouble with zippers as others have indicated. Fit tighter around waist, but still felt true to size. I usually wear between and 10 and 12 and 12 was the only size available--and it worked! I did not wear a bra with the dress and felt with petals and the padding in the dress, it was adequate. Dress flowed and was comfortable to wear all night. I wore flats--with heels the dress would have been too short. I want to own this dress! Loved it and received compliments all night long.

the back is absolutely stunning
The back is absolutely stunning. I'm 5'8, 34D. Usually size 4, but wore size 6L with 4' hills. The dress barely touched the ground. If you are planning on wearing smaller hill or flats get regular length as "long" could be too long. I didn't need to wear a bra. Everything was supported and stayed in place. Definitely would rent this again and recommend it to others. The only problem is that is it really hard to zip up but doable. Just need a little patience.

Perfect dress
This dress was exactly what I wanted for the gala I attended, but unfortunately if did not fit. I read all the reviews of everyone who looked my size and what they said and it can't be overstated that you cannot have a normal size rib-cage for this dress. This 2 would've fit perfectly if not for that, as I am small chested and not big, but I'm not a slim board. I would've loved for this dress to work out for my event; the material was to die for!

The dress was great. Loved the fit and the detail. Would have been a perfect match if the size 6 had been available. So it was a bit loose, but all the same it was gorgeous.

Great fit, flow and elegant detail on the back, enough bra support. The only exception is the zipper, took me 10 minutes and two people to zip up.

I have never felt more beautiful than when I was wearing this dress.
The waist set a little higher than my natural waist (which is notably lower than normal), so I recommend double-checking the measurements prior to ordering. It is, however, one of the most beautiful and comfortable dresses that I have ever worn - the structure sits perfectly and the material is so luxurious.

Amazing dress, very comfortable, very flowy, lots of compliments.
One note: there is a lot more fabric in the skirt than you would expect, but it makes the dress feel more substantial, and it makes it much more fun to twirl in. I wish I could have bought it and kept it forever!

Gorgeous dress!
Wore the dress to the Heart Ball. Fabulous dress. The fabric is heavy but flows very nicely. Love the lace detail, it's not as delicate as it looks. Wore with 4" heels, I'm 5'5" and the length was perfect. Can't wear a bra but front fabric is thick enough that it's comfortable. The only con is the zipper, worked up a sweat zipping it up even with help. The zipper is a struggle right off the hanger so not a size issue. Definitely would rent again.

Very lovely dress, perfect for the Valentine's themed charity event I attended.
The zipper was definitely a killer, I had to get help with it. However, zipper aside, the dress was very flattering. It didn't require a bra (which is saying something, as I have a DD cup size), although I did wear shapewear.

I wore this for a black-tie work event so I needed to look professional, yet gorgeous. Success!
From the front, this dress is fairly sedate, but the back is stunning and I had compliments all evening. Would rent again. Fit is true to form. I loved everything about the dress and would rent again! Great experience with Rent the Runway.

Simply the best.
I was approached and told by multiple people that I didn't know that I had the most beautiful dress. People asked me where I got it from and kept complimenting. It's perhaps the most beautiful dress I've worn in my life (well, except for my wedding dress).

Beautiful dress but couldn't wear it
Should have paid more attention to the people stating that the rib cage area of the dress runs small. I could not wear the dress because of that. It fit everywhere else and was very pretty.

"Oh Wow!"
This dress is a dream. I wanted something elegant yet fun (my bf's boss was being honored at the gala). This dress was perfect! My boyfriend couldn't take his eyes off of me, and kept complimenting me throughout the night on my appearance. The zipper is tough as others have said, and the inner material clung to me a bit, but it was the first time I didn't use a sticky bra thats how secure I felt. Great for being twirled. :)

Beautiful Bridesmaid Gown
Fit was great; I usually wear a 10tall or sometimes a 12 if the item runs small, but 10 had plenty of room in the waist. Front has enough structure to wear only stick on bra and the back is amazing. Had no difficulty with zipper as described by others. The gown flows beautifully when walking and dancing

This dress is absolutely gorgeous and I got a ton of compliments! The zipper does stick a bit as mentioned in other reviews, but it wasn't too big of an issue for me. It was about an inch too long for me in 4 inch heels, but it was still wearable. The bodice was supportive enough for me to go braless, and there are built in cups that offer some coverage. Overall I was really happy with this gown!

Simply perfection
This dress was amazing it fit absolutely perfectly, I read the reviews that said to order a size up and they were right on the money! It was a tad long but a good pair of heels fixed that issue and the way the fabric moves it kicks out so you never step on it. Overall it was the best dress I have ever put on I felt amazing in it and got so many compliments for how classically beautiful it was.

A bridesmaid never looked so good
What a beauty! The back of this dress made is one of the most beautiful dresses I've ever worn. I received so many complements. The side zip is rough so I needed help zipping it. I wore a plunge, low back, halter bra instead of the sticker bra. This mom couldn't go bra free. I recently lost weight and am somewhere between a 10 and 12. I wore the 10 because it fit like a glove and never tried on the 12. I have a curvy figure with a small waist. I'm 5'8" and 175 lbs, wore 2 1/2 inch heals and this dress was exactly the right length. Both of my young children were in the wedding so I was chasing them around in the dress so it has a lot of movability. I would highly recommend this dress if you are looking for a show stopper.

Fun wedding with friends
I loved this dress! It was super comfy, and looked beautiful on. I'm 5'7", and got the regular length, although I probably would have been happier with a long. I wore flats because it looked too short with heels on.

Rented for a formal hospital gala.
Although it is not a showstopper so to speak, it is a very reliable and pretty dress. It ran true to size and was very comfortable. A bra was not necessary, which was a plus. I would recommend to anyone.

Fun night @ a friend's wedding!
LOVED this dress. I rented a 4 and 6 and wish they have a 5. 6 worked fine, just a bit long for me. Super flattering (accentuates waist but hides tummy!). Zipper is really hard to zip - you'll need someone to help, and don't be afraid to pull HARD. Dress is a kind of heavy but super fun to dance in. The back is obviously the highlight, but the lacing on the front is super pretty too. Received tons of compliments.

Back up size was not available
I was really looking forward to wearing this but the 10 did not fit and 12 was not available. I did notice, I have a shorter torso, and I think the beautiful back would have been bunched up and not fit correctly anyway. Bummer!

This dress is amazing, so gorgeous, with a back to die for!
It fit me quite well, I have a very broad shoulders and subsequently broad rib cage, but I didn't have too much trouble. The zipper was a little difficult, but I was able to get it up without additional help. Once it was up, it fit perfectly, and the length was just right for 3.5ish inch heels (I'm 5'3"). I love this dress so much! That being said, it was kind of warm for the sweltering Charleston, SC heat, but other than that, it was perfect. The fabric is heavy, but it falls/lays wonderfully. I definitely recommend it!

What a back view!!
This dress was so incredibly comfortable and the back was stunning. I got so many compliments. It was such a unique and flattering style. I think it ran a little short. I'm 5'10" and wore 3" heels, but I ordered the 12L I'm usually a size 12. The dress was a good inch off the floor. Other than that it ran true to size. The zipper wasn't an issue for me. I don't think it was hard to zip. Just give it an extra tug!

Ran a bit small in the waist. I am a 36c and did not need any bra undergarment. Only wore panties. Fabric held me in perfectly. Tons of compliments. Beautiful back and flowing skirt. Just gorgeous. Super comfortable. LOVED THIS DRESS. Caveat. It looks black on the site but it's navy.

This dress runs true to the size. I've rented 8R and fitted perfectly...I am tall and the regular size was long enough to wear high heals. I got many compliments....the detail on the back is the main feature of this dress!

Stunning dress, the dark navy was perfect with red lipstick and a vintage up-do!
I am usually a size 4-6 in tops, the 6 fit perfectly, the 4 was a bit tight. I wanted to wear 4'' heels so I ordered the long. It was a tad bit long, but the regular would have been way too short to wear with the heels I wanted! Very classy dress, I received many compliments all night.
