STYLIST REVIEW!

I loved this gown and wish I could have made it work for my event. The detail on the dress is stunning! If only I was just a few inches taller! Sadly it was just too long, I am 5'2-5'3 and I had on 5 inch heels and it was still dragging to the point where I was worried I would accidentally rip the dress. However, if you are 5'4 or taller I would HIGHLY recommend this dress! Make sure you are not getting ready alone though because there are about 10-12 buttons on the back of the dress which one can't do alone! LOVED though!

KirstenMarch 4, 2013
I think this dress is gorgeous and am considering renting it. For us bustier ladies did you feel that a strapless bra was ok for the style of the dress?
KatieMarch 4, 2013
You could wear a strapless bra with this dress. It does have some extra room in the bust. I didn't feel as though I needed a bra with it, but you can wear one if need be. I would recommend sizing up for the backup if you are larger in the bust.

Hi Sonia! This dress is a light blue color!
ShiveeMarch 4, 2013
Hi! I am 5-4 with a 34B bust, and I usually wear a 0 or a 2. Would you recommend this for me?
RTR CustomerMarch 4, 2013
Hi Shivee! I would absolutely recommend this dress for you! It is absolutely stunning in person! I would recommend getting the regular length and wearing 4-5 inch heels!
kateMarch 4, 2013
Hi! I am about 5-8 and a 34-A and I usually wear a 4 would you recommend this or is it meant for more bustier people?
CatherineMarch 4, 2013
Hi, I am 5'6", 115 lbs, 32B and usually wear a 0, do you think the smallest size size 2R would work for me?

JessicaMarch 4, 2013
I got some curves on me 5'5 around 150 lbs. Would this dress be a good ideal dress to wear for say formal or no?
ZoeMarch 4, 2013
I am 5'2" and about a size 4, would you recommend this dress for me. I really do love it, and I want to wear it to prom. Can dress tape help with the being too long issue?
RTR CustomerMarch 4, 2013
Hi Zoe! I am 5'2" as well and have tried on this dress. It does run a bit long, but if you rent the regular length and use temporary hem tape, you should be able to make it work just fine!
dwanMarch 4, 2013
hi Zoe-u look absolute gorgeous!! I wear size 0 normally petite. worried abt size 4 being too big on me. Im 5'4" 105lbs, bust size 34a-would u reccomend going w/size 4?? let me know thnks
RTR CustomerMarch 4, 2013
Hi Dwan, I wouldn't recommend the size 4 for you. I would recommend you gow ith a size 0 in this dress!

great customer service!

Unfortunately I can't review this one, as I was notified the day before it was scheduled to arrive that the dress was no longer available. I will, however, say I was thrilled with RTR's customer service, as Katie (stylist) reached out to me by phone and email and gave me suggestions. She ultimately ended up sending me one of my previously-indicated favorites as a backup.

It is a stunning dress but I couldn't wear it. I rented 2 sizes but one was two big and the other one was to small. I guess next time when my size is available. it is a very popular dress.

this dress made my night

fits perfectly, a bit long, so plan on a very high heel

CMarch 27, 2013
what size high heel did you wear? i'm 5'8 - do you suggest the regular or long?
RTR CustomerMarch 27, 2013
Hi Chas, It depends on how tall of a heel you plan on wearing. If you are wearing a 3" heel or less I would go witht he Regular.

Beautiful Dress!

Beautiful dress with gorgeous detail on the front and very flattering. I'm normally a 4R but after reading others reviews and concerned that the dress would be too long I decided to go with the 4P which was a good length for me with 2" heels, maybe a little on the short side. No bra needed. I wore this for my barristers ball (law school formal) and I received lots of compliments all night and had a great time!

Wonderful Dress!

I wore this as my prom dress. I got a TON of compliments. It was also really supportive, but I chose to wear a strapless bra to feel more secure. My only complaint is that it was REALLY long. If you are short beware. Other than that it was a wonderful experience. I'll definitely rent a dress for my graduation from RTR.

Perfectly elegant!

I loved it. I felt like a beauty queen in this dress, and everyone kept complimenting me. Looks exactly like the picture. The material is so soft and flowy, and the perfect shade of light blue. Loved it! I am so glad I read the previous comments and got the Regular size and not the Long. I was in 4 inch heels and the dress was still slightly trailing the floor. If I could give this 10 stars I would!

Spring goddess takes the dance floor!

What you need to know: you must have someone to button the dozen plus buttons on the back of this dress for you If you are a girl 5ft 7 and over rent the Long version That being said if you are taller than 5ft 8 dont expect to be able to wear heels with the dress The chiffon fabric is thin and delicate and could tear on a high heel easily (I wore 3inch wedges)

To be honest. I didn't like the material at all. The bottom of the dress looked very tattered. I didn't end up wearing the dress.

Buttons and overlay, beautiful!

This dress caught my eye and even though I'm not a huge fan of the color I had to rent it for a photo shoot I was doing. When I took it out of the bag I was slightly disappointed, it looked cheaper than I imagined but was still super pretty.The length was perfect for wearing 3.5in heels. The fabric for the skirt of the dress is not the silk chiffon I wish it were. The hem would catch on my heels if I wasn't careful of how I walked. The back is dramatic, the long line of buttons with the sheerness is breathtaking. I wouldn't rent this dress again but I'm not sorry about renting it one time.

Most beautiful, but fragile dress ever!

This dress is beautiful! It is all tulle overlay. The skirt is not chiffon like you might think from the picture. It has a very serene, vintage feel. The band around the waist is little flat, round silver beads sewed on in rows, and the same beads are used to decorate the embroidery. It has built-in underwire bra cups. I know RtR says this dress fits a whole size small, but that was not my experience with it. I tried on the 6 and it was definitely too big! They overnighted me a different dress since the 4 was not available, but the back-up dress didn't work, and this dress is so beautiful, that I wore it anyway. The 6 fit me perfectly in the other two dresses in my order, so I would say I'm a pretty solid size 6 and that this dress actually runs big. I would recommend sizing down in your back-up dress! Also, the dress is really long! I am 5'3" and wore shoes with a 6" heel in order to get it to the length you see in my pictures. Turns out, once you get the front of the dress up off the ground, it has a little sweep train in the back, which was a fun surprise but a logistical challenge! The silk tulle is very fragile and I was constantly worried about stepping on it and tearing it, so this dress is definitely best for an event where you intend to look regal while mostly standing or sitting still. It is not right for an event where you intend to mingle a lot or dance! I really loved wearing the dress, although I would have felt much more comfortable in the 4. As always, RtR customer service was AMAZING in getting me alternatives and trying to solve the sizing problem!

UH-MAZING!

I wore this dress to the james beard awards in NYC, the same night the Met Gala was going on. people on the street were stopping me to ask about the dress. A fashion blogger snapped a pic and later exclaimed on her blog "best dressed of the night!", a reporter stopped us on the red carpet to interview my husband but instead wanted to talk about my dress! The attention this dress brought me seriously caught me off guard. i could not have felt any more beautiful. This dress is elegant, ethereal and apparently eye-catching.. Im 5'7", and wore 4 inch heels. I ordered the 4 regular and it was still a tad long. i was worried about the delicate tulle catching on my heel all night. Also i could have probably gotten away with a 2R because i have such a small bust, but honestly the fit was very comfortable. I didnt want to take it off. and absolutely take the advice of previous reviews~ have someone handy to button up all of the tiny buttons up the spine. I have rented A LOT of gowns from rent the runway and this one is by far my favorite. do yourself a favor ladies, and rent this beauty.

Emilee, this dress (and the color) is amazing on you! I love the earrings you paired them with. Are they also RTR rental? if not, what would be a similar option? Thanks so much!

Free try-on experience with Rent the Runway!

This dress was ethereal and stunning! The fabric felt really soft against my skin and the bodice was so beautiful! The only downside to the dress was the buttons in the back, which need to be individually hooked, and you cannot do that alone. The button holes are small, so it takes some effort to get them fastened. But very worth it! Thanks, RTR, for letting me try it on for free!

Ethereal perfection

This gown is a work of art! The flower detail on the neckline is beyond stunning and makes this dress so unique. I paired it silver studs from Juliet and Company. Fit wise, it runs true to size and you can get away with not wearing a bra. The only downside is that the outer layer of tulle is extremely delicate so I had to be very careful no one stepped on it all night. Not an ideal dress if you want to be dancing all night. But otherwise, it is a real stunner!

I wore this to my prom and it was literally perfection.

The fabric is very delicate and you have to be super careful that no one steps on it. There is absolutely no give, so your extra should probably be a size up. Make sure you have someone else to button it up for you!

Everyone complimented the dress; I felt like a princess!

Since my original dress didn't come, I chose this one the day before prom; it came as a 6R, but with a little bit of fashion taped, I was able to make it fit to my true size (4). The dress has a very nice length, and by compromising my heels with flats it fit perfectly! This dress is good for people with hourglass shapes and some curve who want a more elegant look. Although the detail gets washed out a bit with the camera flash, every single other aspect of the dress is amazing.

having it come on my birthday, right on schedule!

could have worn either the 4R or the 2R both fit fine (ended up wearing the 2R for a smaller waist). The 2R's hemline seemed shorter than the 4R by an inch or so. Loved the buttons and definitely needed someone there to do them up. people loved the front as much as they loved the back.

May I ask how many inches were your heels? I am 5'3" and keep hearing it is super long so don't know if I should go for the 2 petite. Thank you!

This was the most stunning dress I've ever worn!

I rented this dress in both a 6L and a 4R. I was supposed to receive a 4L but something in the order was messed up. The 6L gaped a bit on top, so keep that in mind if you're not too busty. Length wise it grazed the floor with 4 inch heels. The 4R fit absolutely perfectly and just touched the floor (I wore flats). This is a very delicate dress, as the top part is entirely mesh with beading. It's totally worth it as a rental though because it's possibly one of the most beautiful gowns on RTR. I got compliments all night in it and was told by all the faculty at my school that they though my dress was by far the most beautiful they had seen that night.

This dress is STUNNING. The detail and grace of this dress is beyond words. Felt like a princess!

I ordered a 4P because I read from other peoples reviews that length was an issue with this dress. A 2P was not available at the time that I ordered this dress so I compensated the large bust of the 4P dress by buying a heavily padded bra. I was happy that I was not stumbling around all night and tipping on my dress so that definitely overlooked the large bust on the dress. I would definitely recommend this dress, I received so many compliments!

At least 15 people told me they loved my dress, including the parents of the bride! Fits true to size. Don't need spanx. You can wear a strapless bra if it makes you more comfortable (the built in bra is a joke). Gorgeous, gorgeous dress.

So perfect!

I rented this dress for our engagement photo shoot and it was everything I hoped it to be: dreamy, elegant, and so special. The illusion neckline and covered buttons down the back are SO amazing. I have a small bust and usually wear a 0, so since this only came in a 2R, I was prepared for it to be large on me. So, I carefully placed temporary stitches under the arms to tighten up the the bust area and it worked fine. The dress was very long on me since I was wearing flats, but it probably would have been fine with four inch heels . Rent this! You will adore it!

A beautiful, delicate gown

Wore this to a fancy beach wedding. Ordered the size 4 and the size 6. Opted for the size 6 because it fit a bit better in the waist and the size 4 was pretty tattered around the bottom edges. You could tell it had been rented several times before; it might be time to remove it from circulation. The dress was beautiful, comfortable, and flattering. However, I was terrified of snagging the top layer of fabric with my heels. Not the best option if you have an event that calls for heavy dancing and you want to wear heels.

Was grinning from ear to ear the whole night from the compliments!

This dress was beautiful, and great to wear! I have a full bust so was expecting to end up wearing the 8R but I am glad I ordered the 6R as a backup because the bust was surprisingly loose. The hem at the bottom is delicate so look out for that, and you definitely will need an assistant to button the back buttons, but it's absolutely worth it- I wore this to a black tie gala and was bombarded by compliments the whole time- really made the steep rental price worth it.

GORGEOUS dress - felt like a princess!

I did not want to return this dress!! I rented this for a direct sales conference gala. The fit was PERFECT - I ordered my normal size, and one size up, and the 6R fit like a glove!! The top layer is VERY delicate, and the dress was a little long on me. When walking, I was just sure to pick it up so I didn't step on it. The color of it is absolutely gorgeous, and the back is such a surprise (I don't have any photos, but the one on the site is a great reference). You will definitely need someone to help button up the back. I received so many compliments on this dress! If I hav another opportunity, I would definitely rent this dress again!!! :)

Very delicate fabric. Runs true to size. The zipper was defective so Ihad to be really careful when i zipped it up for the event. Also the bottom of the dress was distressed and you can tell it has be worn but no one would notice other than me.

Beautiful dress, although I unfortunately did not wear. RTR sent this to me in place of a dress that was not available and it was a little too formal for the event I was attending. I can't say enough about how breathtaking this gown is. Hope to wear it soon!

Yes, Mr. Gatsby? :)

I felt so beautiful. Sure, I received bountiful complements, but that's not why: feeling the dress on me, feeling myself walk underneath it, made me feel...well, beautiful! Not only did the dress perfectly fit our gatsby-themed prom, but my dashing boyfriend made the perfect accessory :) Be warned: You MUST be gentle with this dress!

The PERFECT dress for a romantic weekend away in Martha's Vineyard!

I ordered this dress for an anniversary photo session in Martha's Vineyard and totally fell in love with it! My husband and I spent a few hours before sunset strolling over the rolling dunes and along the sparkling water. The color was amazing and I really liked the way it flowed in the wind. I wore a 4P and paired it with the Alexis Bitter Seaglass Lattice Teardrops to complete the look. I was so happy with this dress and I would rent it over and over again!

Killler Gown

Get ready to receive compliments in this killer frock! This dress is absolutely stunning in person and so elegant. My only piece of advice with this dress is to wear tall heels - even the R runs long for a short person (I am 5'4).

Top notch customer service

I received this dress as a replacement to my original back-up dress. I went back and forth with the stylist while choosing a new dress and I really wanted this one to work, unfortunately it just didn't. The length was fine but that was it. The chest area was ridiculously too big. The top "mesh" part looked completed unfinished as it appeared to have been cut really unevenly. The bottom hem had the chiffon overlay part shorter than the underskirt part which I didn't really like either. Overall it just really didn't flatter me. However, like I said earlier, the customer service was above and beyond and I wore my original dress which I really loved.

I ordered this dress for a destination wedding in cancun. Now I ordered the 8R because the 6L was not available. It was big on me and I wish the 6L would have been available but I made it work. The only thing I was disappointed was that there were little button missing off the belt, but I hid that with my purse. The 6L really would have been better because I was not able to wear heels with the dress it would have come down too short. I am 5'7" so if your around my height order a long. Other than this everyone at the hotel and the wedding kept on stopping me to tell me how amazingly gorgeous my dress was. And that I was the best dressed at the wedding.

Beautiful color and design but odd bunching in bust

While the color and design of the dress are beautiful there was odd bunching in the bust area. I'm not sure if this is a problem with the design of the actual dress or just the one I received. Unfortunately, this was my backup dress and while it fit I was not satisfied. Thanks to the fantastic customer service of the RTR Go Girls they were able to give me a credit to my satisfaction so I will continue to use their service. Thanks for the great customer service!

Felt beautiful prom night thanks to this beautiful and unique dress!

Wore this dress for my senior prom and fell in love the second I put it on. It was different from what everyone else was wearing and fit me perfectly. I received so many compliments that night and felt great!

The most perfect dress of all time. Seriously.

This dress is the one all other dresses must match up to, for me. The color is a perfect ethereal blue. The fabric on the skirt was a really soft, delicate mesh - VERY delicate, so be careful with your heels! The embroidered overlay on the bodice is stunning, and the best part is the buttons up the back. Of course you'll need a helper to get buttoned in, but it's totally worth it. Regarding size - I've worn Catherine Deane since I wore this dress and the other dresses seem to fit smaller than this one. The 2R was almost big on me. I think a 0 in this dress would've been perfect. But truly the most special thing I've ever worn. I'm a dance teacher, and my little girls STILL talk about this dress, and say I was Queen Elsa from "Frozen" that night <3

Breath taking

I got compliments all night long. The color is amazing. The fit was perfect. A little snug around the rib cage but not uncomfortable. I love this dress

Absolutely beautiful.

Such a light, airy fabric. It's really a beautiful dress. Because the fabric is so delicate you have to be really careful when putting it on- otherwise there can be tiny little rips in the transparent part. It is a gorgeous dress- I wish I could wear it again!

Would be beautiful on someone, but not me.

This was my backup dress, so I wasn't too upset when it didn't look great on me. It's a gorgeous dress - just not great for my body type.
