The dress was beautiful but I'd recommend it to small chested women. I ended up not wearing this dress.

I had so many woman come up to me and ask where I got this dress! It was stunning!

I am usually between a 2 and a 4 depending on how the dresses run so I always get one of each size! The 4 fit perfectly!

Another girl had on the same dress, we both looked so fabulous, we took a photo together!

This dress and I went through all of the emotions together. When it first came, I really didn't love it but it ended up being another great rental! The color is definitely a dark navy and a cream or antique gold on top. The biggest thing that surprised me was the sleeve length; I felt as though they should have gone longer down my arm, but they were really more of a 3/4 length sleeve. The slit is quite high, but I felt like the flowy nature of the fabric kept all the things covered. I wore the regular length with flats to save my feet, and I felt like the top was very large compared to other reviews.

Gorgeous, elegant gown!

I wore this to my medical school's formal and felt elegant and sexy-the high slit was a great contrast to the more modest neckline, and I got tons of compliments all night long!The top fit well, though I'm a 34B and could see how anyone larger than a C cup would probably find it too tight. The skirt was plenty roomy, so if you're between sizes, go with the size you are on top. At 5'9 and in 3 inch heels, the long length was perfect.

Broken zipper

I rented this dress for my rehearsal dinner. I ordered the 10r and the 8r. The 10r was too big. The 8r fit but the zipper was broken so I wasn't able to zip it up so I had to wear a different dress. :(( bummer!! It was so cute and I wanted to wear it so bad! If only the zipper worked

Quality of the dress was soft and comfortable. Felt like a princess.

A friend of my husbands recommended this app to us. I wasn't really looking forward in buying a $300 $500 dollar dress and never wear it again. Once I heard about RTR, I was intrigued. I would definitely recommend it to my friends. So affordable. The material of the dress is comfortable. Kept getting compliments all night.

Stunning Dress

I wore this dress for my engagement photos. It was exactly what I was looking for. The skirt of the dress is magnificent, silky, flows beautifully. I had to get a long which was fine because it was for photos and it looked great flowing in the wind. The arms were ridiculously tight. It took 3 tries and 4 people to get me into this dress. Definitely worth it, but wouldn't be able to go to an event for a night in it.

Elegant

I didn't end up wearing it but this dress photographs beautifully. The slit is very high but it looks great. The bottom of the dress is a dark navy but it's hard to tell so it can pass as black. I didn't think it ran small at all but I have a smaller waist for my size. the arms have plenty of room which was nice and on my dress there was only a key hole back with 3 buttons not buttons all the way up but it didn't take away from the beauty of this dress. I did wish the dress was longer though it came about an inch or 2 off the floor in my 3 in heels but no matter It's definitely a show stopper.

I wish I could have had the chance to wear it.

The dress is absolutely beautiful. The skirt flows like no other. However, I was not able to wear it as it was too small in the bust for and the next size up was not available. The only thing I found daunting about the gown is all of the tiny little buttons up the back. You definitely need someone to help with the buttoning and zipper.

lovetoshopNovember 6, 2013
How long was the skirt? I'm only 5'2, would it be terribly long? Because of my chest I would have to size up as well but an 8 might be way to big. Wish there were more reviews on this one!

Sexy classic.

I'm 5'2", 115lbs, 32DD, 26" waist and I had to size up to a 4R, this dress would have been perfect 4" shorter yes even with 3.5" heels on! The slit was really high, it showed up underwear so I got away with holding my dress shut as I walked since it was so long. The sleeves hit nicely and the built in bra was ok, I used tape to make sure it didn't slip off my chest through the night. I did notice in some pictures you could see the underwire and because of the netting I couldn't readjust it. Overall with some tweaking the dress worked out great for the event.

LexaNovember 12, 2013
Hello! I'm 5'2" as well and thinking about this dress–what style underwear were you wearing that it showed? I hope not bikini! I love this dress but the height of the slit makes me so nervous. I'm hoping it's not actually a slit that goes up to my hip!
DaceNovember 12, 2013
HI! I was wearing spanx like boy-shorts. If you double stick tape your thigh to the dress at the slit it should be ok..or maybe tape it together lol

The dress was both literally and figuratively breathtaking

So here's the skinny on this dress: if you are tall, it is amazing because it has a slight train in the back so it is plenty long. If you are athletic (I've been a swimmer most my life) and have lats, the waist is REALLY high-well above the natural waist on a tall gal-and difficult to close. It took a team of three to squeeze me into this thing. Mind you, I am thin, and in most dresses would wear a size 2L. So just be ready for that...order your regular size and a size up as your backup...if you're like me. Now for the upsides, this dress was GORGEOUS. The button up back was fully worth the effort that it took to get it buttoned...and unbuttoned ;) The embroidery was impeccable and stunning. The skirt was flowing and regal with an amazing sky high slit. Wax, shave, moisturize, because that leg will be on full display (one of my favorite things about this dress). The flowing movement of the skirt as you walk makes you feel like you stepped right off the runway. I love this dress and will definitely keep my eye on patricia dean in the future. I wish i had gotten better pictures of this dress, because it was TOTALLY elegant and beautiful beyond what you are getting in these pics...it completely fulfilled my expectations. I love rent the runway, the customer service is without equal and I will rent from this company again and again. Theres nothing like wearing a 2000 dress and paying a fraction of that!

Everything fit except my back wouldnt close! I am a 34D so was very surprise the chest was so small

I usually wear size 2 and 4 Women dresses. They did not have size 4R available as a back up so had to go with size 2R which chould have not been a porblem because usually if a dress size 2 is tight it woudl be in the hip area and this one has a flowy skirt so I did not anticipated a major problem. That was until I realized the back wouldnt close! I am a 34D bra size and the gap was like 2 inches apart and there was no way on earth I could get it to close :( so sad beacause this one my husband's first choice dress. Eneded up having to wear the backup design which turned out to be stunning too just in a different way. Beware and go a size up if you have breast!

NikkiJanuary 8, 2014
How was the length when you had it on without shoes? Like was it over the floor or draped a few inches? Im 5'1" too and nervous about the length!

Absolutely beautiful dress. Definitely runs small, so size up. Comfortable and flattering.

Wore this dress to a Southern wedding on an old plantation. Got so many compliments and felt super glamorous. It's a beautiful, unique dress, and it is very flattering, especially if you hate your hips, as I do mine. Unfortunately, the intricate buttons down the back are gone. There are just three buttons at the top of the dress, and the area where the laced up buttons would be is open. RTR should disclose this since the buttons are such a unique feature. The fact they were missing didn't ruin the dress for me, but I wish I'd known ahead of time. Dress definitely does run small. I usually wear a 2 or 4, depending on the designer, and I wouldn't have fit into this dress if it was any smaller. Overall though, I definitely recommend it.

Very Small in the chest, but stunning in person

The lace looks nothing like in the pictures, its much more gold. Also there are not buttons all the way up the back. This was my top choice gown when I ordered and also my top pick when it arrived until I tried it on. Only 1 size was available and it was the size I typically wear so i ordered it. I couldn't even get it zipped there was about a 2 inch gap when trying to zip the top. The bottom is lose and flowly but if you are blessed up to size up 1 or even 2 sizes! For reference I am a 32G though, so this could be the issue!

Stunning dress, but runs small! Size up!

I typically wear between a size 2 and 4 depending on the designer, and in this case, the 2 was much too small for my ribcage. (So far in most of the dresses that I've rented from RTR, I've fit in the 2 with 4's as backups.) There was at least a 2-inch gap in the back, impossible to zip up all the way. I had ordered a 4 as my backup size, but for some reason, it was unavailable, so RTR sent me a random second dress of a completely different style. As gorgeous as this dress is in photos, I really wish I could've given this a 5-star rating, but due to fit, I have to give it 3 stars as my overall satisfaction with this order was disappointing. The long dress had holes along the seams, the bodice sagged since it's a soft-bodice and there are no shoulder straps to keep it up. The sagging was noticeable in flash photos so it was uneven under my bosom. The slit is very high, but not a problem so long as you walk with the slit in your grasp. The mesh sleeves and embroidery were fraying a little bit, but only noticeable if you looked closely. I still love how beautiful the gown is and think it's stunning - would love to try this in a 4R for a better fit. The dress I received was not the same one pictured on the site. Like other reviewers who have worn this dress, my dress only had 3 buttons on the back and was strapless. Not sure how a designer could have two variants of the same dress, but it's still lovely. I definitely think the full row of buttons would've been lovely and the straps may have encouraged a better, less-saggy wear. As noted in the product description, the skirt is a dark navy, not black like it appears on the model. Size up for this dress! It's one of the few RTR dresses where I couldn't fit into a 2 like I normally do.

Beautiful but really small!

I could fit a 0 or 2 depending on the make but the 2 on this didn't close. The 4R closed but was really really tough. Once on it's beautiful. The bottom part of the dress is pretty comfortable and the flow is nice. I'm 5'6" and with a 3" heel, the length was perfect. I didn't wear it in the end since I like the other dress that I ordered more but it is beautiful and would be a dress to wear to a formal affair.

Perfect untraditional wedding dress

I wore this dress for my untraditional wedding and I have never gotten more compliments in my life. I thought this dress was going to be black on the bottom, but it is actually a dark navy blue which for me still ended up working but I would have loved it even more if it were black. This dress DOES run very small. I ordered a 2L and a 4R because a long wasn't available in size 4. I am usually a size 0 in dresses so I thought I would be ok, but the 4 would have fit perfectly if it was long enough. I ended up wearing the 2L and it was ok, but a little tight around my ribs... but who needs to breath on their wedding day right? ha! Also the embroidery detail was fringing on the dress a bit and there was a few snags in the lace top, but they weren't in very noticeable places so I wasn't too worried about it. The button down detail on the back no longer exists and now it is just 3 buttons with a keyhole (I added a picture where you can see) which is still pretty, but not as awesome as all those buttons. Overall I loved the dress and I'm ecstatic with the way the dress fit my wedding theme perfectly and how I looked on my wedding day. Photo Credit: Set Free Photography

Elegant and unique

I got this dress for my nephew's wedding, I was officiating and it couldn't have been more appropriate. The fit of the underwire bra was a little tight (I am a full B cup). I love the slit, since the dress is covered up having such deep slit gave the dress a bit of sexy. I posted the picture on social media and got a lot of instant message questions to where I had gotten that gorgeous dress. The dress is very long, I got super high heels (like 4.5 inches) and still drag a bit but then again, I am very short. The experience with RTR was unbelievable, my sister and I both got dresses and we both loved it. Their customer service was impeccable. I got this dress, it fit and didn't have/need a back up, my sister however ended up getting three different dresses until she got the perfect one. We would use RTR again for sure.

Beautiful dress! Giving 4 out of 5 stars only because the fit was odd.

I was so disappointed when this dress came- it is such a pretty gown but it didn't fit me right at all. I am usually between a 2 and a 4, and after reading this dress ran small I went with the 4R (the 6R would have been my backup but it was unavailable). The 'bustier' top underneath is strapless, and although it was shaped, I would have worried about it coming down all night. The waist is very high and has no stretch to it. I have a fairly long torso so the waistline of this dress was about 2'' too high for me and because of this, I couldnt get it to zip all the way. The sleeves were a little too short for me as well. If you order this dress I would definitely order a size up, maybe even 2 sizes up for your backup.

Worn for an Air Force Ball and felt like to most beautiful woman in the room.

The bottom navy fabric was very staticky, I had to spray between the layers with hairspray to keep them apart. When I pulled it out of the box the very high slit, that I was so excited about was stitched together making it come down about 6". I ended up "ripping" the stitches out for over an hour trying to keep it pristine and undamaged. Once that was done it was perfect. It was worn with simple nude heels and Anton Hemus Lotus Pendant Earrings, found on RTR, they went together well. The editorial pick Oscar de la Renta Etoile Earrings definitely look the best and match the colors better, but they were not available for my event. I will definitely come back for more, especially for special bridesmaids dresses or a lovely justice of the peace wedding dress.

Not for the short waisted

I was in love with the dress from the moment I saw it on the site. I thought it would be perfect for the military awards night I had to go to. Sz 10 was not available so I ordered it in the 12l. I have very long legs and a short waits. This has a very high waist, which hit me in a very odd spot. It did not accentuate my waist. It made it look larger, in fact. Also, there was NO way I would have been able to wear heels with it. It just BARELY touched the floor with no shoes on. Great on the model, no so much on me.

Made me feel like I was walking the Red Carpet

Absolutely beautiful but heed the warnings. It runs small so ORDER UP! I often wear a 0 and the 2 was quite snug. I made it work but boy was it tight. The dress is a unique mix of classic (the top) and sexy (the slit). Love the navy as everyone else is always in black. Would rent this one again.

Not as Pictured:( but I LOVE RTR:)

I have had my eye on this dress since the first time I visited RTR. As pictured, it is one of my absolute favorites and I couldn't wait for an occasion to rent it. In real life, however, it is a terrible disappointment. The colors are vastly different to an extent that baffles me; you can see some variation in the pictures sent in by other RTR customers who've worn it but I don't see how it ever photographs to look ivory because the top is GOLD and the embroidery is very thick, both of which features make it seem much heavier and better suited for a winter event despite the delicacy of the tulle. The embroidery also makes the sleeves (which run a little short) very constricting while adding bulk around the arms, which I don't think any woman wants. Beyond that, there are other fit issues that make the dress awkward up top because the waistline is neither natural nor empire and the lining is just floats loosely inside the embroidered top. You'll need an extra set of hands to get everything to lay somewhat smooth underneath and then to do up the buttons. Apparently, there are many women who have pulled this look off in the past but be advised to read their reviews carefully because many of them mention some of the same things, they just didn't consider them to be deal-breakers like I did. All that said, RTR customer service is AMAZING and they were eager to make things right in time for my event so I am still a very satisfied customer.

OK dress nothing more

Didn't end up wearing this dress. The skirt is very big and flowy making your hips/booty look even wider. The top just hung and did not fit right. If you are straight and narrow it probably looks great but not for short wasted or curvy girls.

This dress looked atrocious on my body, because of my body type.

AVOID IF YOU HAVE LARGE BREASTS. If you have an hourglass figure with large breasts, this dress will make you look matronly and fat. I was so glad that they couldn't send me the original size I ordered because they sent me two additional dresses to make up for it (both of those dress looked fabulous on me). When I put on the dress, it fit nicely but I was horrified at how I looked. I don't know why this dress is recommended for full bust/hour glass types. This dress would look great on a tall small breasted girl but the high waist will make anyone with large breasts look fat and old. One of my backup dresses was a Marchesa mermaid type dress and it complimented my curves perfectly, I would recommend that instead of this dress if you have a body type similar to mine.

The dress was absolutely perfect, and arrived just in time!

The dress is absolutely beautiful and the pictures do not do it justice. Everyone including the bride and groom kept giving me compliments. The bottom was not a true black (more in between black and dark navy blue) so be careful if you are planning or wearing black shoes. It does run small and I did not know if it was going to fit but if you close the zipper by your waist and put the straps up your should be fine. I am never one to go up in sizes as they are normally too loose but in this case, I would definitely recommend it. I normally wear a size 0 and the 2 was a little snug.

GLAMOROUS

I rented this for a black tie wedding, and it sure got a lot of compliments! I generally wear a size 0 or XS but boy, was this TINY. I couldn't zip up the size 2 - even the 4 was pretty tight around the chest (and I'm pretty small chested too). For a 5'2" it runs long obviously but whipping the skirt around made it look even glamorous (In my opinion). It looks high-class and elegant, but with a touch of sexy (with the big slit). I wish I had taken more photos!

Absolutely stunning!!!

This dress is AMAZING!! I ordered this dress for my rehearsal dinner and wasn't sure what to expect, but I literally was in love with it. I was stopped by over a dozen people that night to compliment me and ask about the dress. But beware... It definitely runs small. I normally wear a zero and it took two people to squeeze and button me into the 2R. But it was 100% worth it.

Did the dress have buttons all the way down the back? And was the dress navy or black? Thanks!

Its a unique, extraordinary dress

The dress was fabulous, it fit well but ran very long. I'm 5'7 and the regular length was a little long, even with 3" heels. The design stood out against all others and I got so many many compliments all night long. My favorite part of the dress had to be either the slit, (Beware: It is very, very high) or the slight train that ran behind. When you walked it flowed beautifully and I felt like a goddess. Overall its a great dress that makes you feel gorgeous with all its subtle, intricate details.

Which event did you wear this to? Were the sleeves restricting at all? Do you think it would be a good dress for prom?

STUNNING! ELEGANT! GLAMOROUS!

I wore this to a formal black tie wedding and the compliments never ended!!! I was even told that I was the most glamorous one there! (I hope second to the bride of course!) The dress is absolutely gorgeous! From the detailing on the bodice to the flowy skirt. HOWEVER, be warned - the dress runs REALLY small. I usually wear size 0 or 2. I ordered the 2R and I could barely get it to close in the back! So, breathing and eating was labored all night. (small price to pay to ALMOST outshining the bride) Plus, it's VERY long! I wore 4' heels and it was still super long on me. I'm 5'2". Although there these minor issues, I couldn't have been happier to have rented this BEAUTY!

A beautiful dress, but not my favorite

I had my eye on this dress for almost a year and had a black tie occasion to wear it. I ordered it along with a different style as a backup. The dress was beautiful, don't get me wrong, but it wasn't as figure flattering as the other option. Also, the sleeves were a bit stretched out and I felt like it made my arms look bigger than what they are.

The Dress makes you feel like a princess.

It fits a bit smaller. Good condition length was perfect.

The model shows buttons all down the back, but in your picture it looks open, were the buttons missing ?

Was this dress made for me?

I originally ordered this dress in the 2L and 4L. When received an email a few weeks before my event saying that the 2L was damaged, I was so disappointed. But thankfully, the dress did run a little small and the 4L fit like it was made for my body. I absolutely loved everything about this dress. It was perfect for my white tie event. Many of the other reviewers commented that the bodice of the dress would not stay up. I found that the bodice stayed perfectly where I put it. It fit like I was wearing a strapless gown (except with a beautiful lace overlay). I did not end up wearing a bra with this dress because the bodice did not stay when I tried it on with a bra. I wouldn't recommend this dress for ladies who are a bit more busty. The lace on the arms was well fitted - but I think it depends on the dress you get. Other reviews commented that the arms were loose. The length of the dress was great with my 4"-ish heels. I am 5'7" and a 4R definitely would have been short. The material of the skirt was soft and stretchy - a deep elegant blue color. I wore this in September in Texas and did not get overheated during the couple of times I went outside. I would recommend this dress to ladies with long, lithe body types. It's beautiful and I was sad to see it retuned at the end of the weekend.

It truly was a beautiful dress, however it fit me a bit small and had to get a different dress,

If I could I would definitely rent the size that fits me and wear it for another occasion. There was truly nothing I hated about it, the only thing is that I am a size 4 and the 4/6 were a big no no.

the amazing details and the very high slit. my only issue was my breasts, they didn't want to fit

be ready to shave your legs all the way up and wear something under so no one can see what color panties you might be rocking
