Beautiful dress! Expect to receive a ton of compliments! It stands out!

It fits true to size. I am usually a 4 to 6 and wore the 6 in regular length. There is a big difference in the regular length to long length. Only go with long if you are super tall! Great for larger bust sized women.

Such an amazing dress!! Everyone wanted to know where I got it! Wish I could keep it!

The fit was true to size. Waist band does not allow much give but still fits comfortably. I am only 5' therefore the torso of the dress was a little large but nothing a few safety pins couldn't fix. The dress was absoultely stunning in person without a single flaw! The length was perfect for me I wore a 2 and 1/2 inch heel and it just barely touched the floor! Will rent from here again!!

A very well-dressed little old lady complemented me in this dress!

Such a fun party dress! I was kind of worried when my first choice in dresses couldn't be delivered, but this stand-in was a great replacement. Fun to twirl in. And it has pockets! The back is see-through - I chose to wear a skin-toned tank top and real bra under it. The only complaint is that the armholes poked out - like the bustline was cut for an Oxford shirt. This was my first Rent the Runway experience, and I will definitely do it again!

Stylist Review!

An exquisite evening look by Christian Pellizzari. This high-low gown is the perfect way to wear black yet stand out. The dark floral element makes this piece appropriate for fall, winter, or anything in between. The dress runs true to size and we definitely recommend sizing up for backup. The bust runs tight and is recommended for smaller cup sizes (36C and below). The permanently belted waist is more fitted, but there is ample room in the hips. There is no stretch to the fabric and you must go bra-less to avoid showing your bra straps in the back. Pair it with light silver jewelry and strappy black heels.

Fete!!

Snug fit - which was great! I have a small waist and was concerned that the dress was going to not fit it as nicely as it did. The hi-lo style worked for a "black tie to casual" dressed event.

It's a beautiful dress and I got tons of compliments through out the night

I'm normally a size 0 but I went up a size since the waist was a little tight on me. I'm short and love the short/long hem, unfortunately a few people stepped on my long hem. It's a beautiful dress and I got tons of compliments

I ended up not wearing this dress

I loved the formal yet fun aspect of this dress and really wanted to wear it to a Black Tie event I had ordered it for. I usually wear a size 2 and order a size up, but unfortunately they were out of the size 4 when I went to rent this dress. I was able to get the size 2 on (with a few extra seconds of fighting with the zipper) but it was incredibly too tight in the rib cage area and I was nervous I'd be regretting my decision to wear it by the end of the night. It was a bit big in the shoulder area too while the rest of it was tight.

Loved wearing this dress, I got so many compliments!

I'm 5'7'' and ordered the long based on the size chart, but even with 3 inch heels it was a bit too long. I'd say the long is better suited for 5'9'' and above. The top was a bit tight in the bust so I'd recommend sizing up for your back up. The 44L fit perfectly. The dress was flattering and comfortable!

A show-stopper!

The dress was stunning and an ABSOLUTE HIT! I received compliments all evening on the unique design, elegance, and fit (and this was a very well-dressed crowd). The waist is quite narrow, so consider going a size up.

I had SO many compliments on this dress! Honestly, I have never felt prettier in a dress.

The fit was perfect! It is very fitted at the waistline, which was nice and snug which I liked. I had a little extra room around my shoulders were it was a tiny bit "gappy" when sitting but standing up it was fine. You need to wear higher heels for this type of dress only because of the long train that it has in the back. The front was not too short, it was jut right. I could not have been happier with this dress. I recommend this dress for anyone for a more fancy/black tie wedding. I would rent this again in a heartbeat!

I didn't want to send it back! It is a true show stopper! Be prepared to blow everyone away.

This was my backup dress. I am so happy I got this because my first dress was awful. I am 5'9 and the 42L just touched the ground. I have a small bust, I could see someone with C's or larger having an issue. I usually wear a 6, but I have a small waist. I opted for the 4 because it had the full skirt and it fit perfectly. If you have a small waist, opt for a size down. The dress is very high quality. At this black tie wedding, I got so many compliments including: 1) stunning, 2) you rented that!!! 3) it looks like you are wearing a piece of art and 4) you have my favorite dress of the night....second to the bride. I miss this dress already....haha.

This is a beautiful dress! I wore it to a wedding and it flows nicely.

I absolutely love the bottom. I was slightly saddened that the top wasn't more comfortable. It's actually really structured--it almost feels like body armor with the sequins fashioned the way they are. But when I tried the size 42R (equivialent size 4), it was way too roomy up top. I personally liked the length. I got a Long and it would graze the floor but there were parts of the night where I was afraid people would trip over it. Crisis avoided though. Others mentioned that the middle section is a bit tight. It is. But when I went up a size it was too big. I thought it would bother me a lot more than it did, but it was ok. Towards the end of the evening after all the wedding food, it got a bit rough though. I cheated a little and would pull it up when I sat down, lol.

Loved this dress! Received compliments all night!

This dress is stunning and bold! I wore 4 inch heels and the dress just missed the floor, it was perfect. The pockets in the skirt are so convenient. There was a little more room to fill in the top than I needed but the top is stiff with the sequins so you could not tell at all. I did not have to wear a bra. The silver on the inside of the skirt was a little wrinkled when I received it and a steamer was not able to get them out because of the type of fabric but it was not noticeable to anyone but me.

Classic!

I absolute loved this dress! I ended up sizing down as it was a bit big in the chest and didn't want to wear a bra. RTR was great in getting me the smaller size the very next day. I got so many compliments on this dress! My future mother in law said I was a class act and made the perfect choice. I would definitely rent this again. Thanks RTR!

This dress was beautiful and unique! I got so many compliments from both men and women!

I have a very straight figure (i.e. no curves and no waist) and so it was great that this dress helped make me have a figure. Since I'm short, I also liked the hi-lo nature of the skirt component as it didn't make me short but because of the train was still wearable for a black tie affair.

Fun, Different Dress - A Headturner

I picked this dress to wear to a gala for the tech industry, where the attendees tend to dress all over the map, in terms of formality. Thus, I wanted something that was fun, versus an elegant "gown" style of a dress. This fit the bill perfectly. I received many compliments and saw quite a few people eyeballing the gown. The short/long hem is very eye-catching, yet the muted colors of black and silver keep it from being too much. In terms of fit, I'm 5'2 and 105lbs and it (the 40R) fit very well. The waist was good - nothing smaller would have fit. The chest area was a little roomy, but not to the point it looked weird (and i'm only a small A cup). The length was pretty perfect; I'm guessing my heels were about 3.5". There was a tiny bit of drag to the hem but even in a crush of people it barely ever got stepped on. When you're moving with purpose, the dress sort of billows behind you, so it's really not an issue. I normally wear a size 0-2, depending on the designer. I had originally ordered a 38R (which I believe corresponds with a size 0) and it was unavailable to ship to me. My guess is it would have been too small in the waist for someone of my size, but probably would have fit me better in the chest.

The look is so unique

The waist fits true to size, the chest area was a little loose, I'm small. The sequins rub on the left side so just watch running your arm. Overall I loved the dress! Received so many compliments and the long it drug long. I'm 5'9 and def had to wear heels.

Beautiful! Comfortable!

This dress was perfect for the black-tie holiday party I attended. It fit beautifully and was comfortable. I have wider hips, so it did fit snugly around my hips, but it showed off my curves nicely, and I didn't feel like I couldn't breathe sitting down or dancing. I absolutely loved this dress!

I rented this dress for a black tie wedding and it fit the occasion perfectly.

The dress looked good in person, but I loved it a bit more on the website. The background of the floral print on the dress is light silver, although it looks more white on the pictures online. The top is cute but looks almost like it's tucked into the skirt part of the dress in 2 separate pieces. The 2nd size wasn't available on the date I needed the dress and I was worried the structure of the dress wouldn't have any stretch. That wasn't the case, the band as well as the sequin top have stretch. Overall, I enjoyed the dress. I don't think I'd rent it again, but it was a good experience and great for the occasion.

Winter black tie wedding

The fit was true to size in the waist if not A touch large but 4 stars because the top ran big. I wanted the levee and collarbone area to be much tighter. I was very self conscious of the extra room and kept pulling the dress down in the back to help. Overall it was very different and a sexy legs dress! Just don't expect to twirl on the dance floor, it's very short in the front!!!!!

INCREDIBLE dress. High/low surprise, major compliments.

My favorite rental out of about 20 dresses so far. Compliments ALL night long. The long gown back makes for a huge surprise when you turn around and people see the front. Plus, the contrast between dark outside and light underneath enhances the effect. Beautiful thick (but non-stretchy) fabric. This dress even has pockets!!!! Fitted on the chest, great for small-breasted women, loose on the hips. Highly recommended for any formal affair. You will be remembered.

Loved this dress! Glad I followed the reviews and sized up. Only bad thing to say about this dress was the skirt wrinkled super easy and it was hard getting the initial wrinkles out from the rtr bag but still no regrets! Would rent again!

This dress was perfect for a holiday event! Received SO many compliments on this unique dress!

This dress was one of my favorites I've rented so far. I was so determined to wear this dress to the event I was going to when I saw it, that I got the 40L despite the fact I knew it would be too long (40R was booked for that time period). It still ended up working just fine. The fit was great and while the tail was long, I am on the shorter end so would have ended up holding it a bit throughout the night either way. Beautiful sparkle on top and unique contrasting floral pattern below. It is a LOT of fabric on the bottom so expect to wiggle your way through a crowd holding the tail a bit, but perfect for some high heels and a black tie-esque affair! Obsessed with this dress.

Stunning Dress!

I wore the 42L - I'm 5'8" and had a 5" heel and it just reached the floor - so it was perfect. The waistband and bodice were not stretchy and came right under the ribcage for me - so might not work for bigger busts. Overall - the fabric and shine were devine. Very well made. So many compliments - I wish this was mine now! Thank you RTR for a wonderful and stress free experience!

most amazing dress I ever wore

I reserved this dress in advance for a wedding I was attending out of town. I usually wear a size 6 but based off some comments about the top being snug if you have a large bust (I am a 34DD) I reserved the 8 as my backup size. my dresses arrived the night before I was traveling and I was pretty shocked to open the box and discover I was sent 2 different dresses. it was at this moment I found out I received the size 6 but apparently the size 8 wasn't available for whatever reason and I was sent a different dress as my backup in an 8. the size 8 dress was not attractive at all and this dress in the 6 was pretty tight up top. Luckily RTR has outstanding customer service and Paige was very helpful in attempting to ease my worries and I appreciate all her help. unfortunately there were no other dresses for the look I was going for so last minute but somehow the day of the wedding I was able to zipper it up and have a great night. I can't even describe in words how beautiful and amazing I felt in this dress. it speaks for itself. highly recommended I would love to rent again but definitely size up if you have curves!

Perfect for a New Year's Eve wedding

Such a fun dress, the bottom part is definitely a statement piece. My favorites about the dress include the pockets, the heavy and luxurious material of the skirt and the overall shape. If I had to have some minor complaints, it would be that the top was just a tad big compared to the waist and that the sequins started to rub my arms towards the end of the evening.

Compliments GALORE! This is such a WOW dress!

I wore a size larger than I normally do because it was the only size available and I had to have this dress! The top was a little large, but I carefully pinned it from the inside and it was just fine. If I ever rented this again, I would rent the long as the regular was a little short on me. I am only 5' 6" and would never think to rent a long at that height, but I think it would have been perfect if it had touched the floor. The pockets made the dress extra wonderful! This dress is a perfect mix for a professional black tie optional event - it is short and super fun in the front and all business in the back. The dress is actually more gorgeous in person, if you can believe that! I loved everything about this dress and would rent it again in a heartbeat. Once again, RTR made me feel incredible!!

Stunning, comfortable and compliments all night

This dress fit me perfectly and is my favorite rental so far. I ordered the 42R and 44R because reviews said the waist had no give. I went with the 42R. Not only did it fit perfectly, it was comfortable, I could wear a regular bra and the high waist fit allowed for eating and drinking with no worries. I received compliments all night- it was very different, sophisticated and gorgeous! Would definitely rent again.

Beautiful, unique, comfortable and memorable!

This dress was the perfect pick for my company's formal year-end awards celebration! I ordered the 38R and 40R. The 40R fit with a little bit of room but still looked great; the 38R fit like a glove but I went with the 40R for comfort. I wore 4 inch heels so the length was fine on both. The bodice is sequined and looked great under stage lights! I would love to rent this dress again for a similar event.

Having an amazing dress that I would never have had the opportunity to purchase in a store!!

The dress runs small in the waist. I am smaller on top and bigger on the bottom and usually wear a 4-6. I definitely needed the 6 in this dress. It is a beautiful dress!! Very comfortable!! The back is see through just to keep in mind. I still wore a regular bra with it though. If you have never ordered from this site before, I highly recommend it. This was my first time. They make it SO EASY and CONVENIENT!!.
