So Comfortable

This dress was so comfortable! I was 15 weeks pregnant when I ordered the dress and I was going to be 17 weeks while wearing it. I am usually a 4L but I needed to size up for the tummy area. Had I not been pregnant and just got my normal size it would have been perfect too. I am also LDS and this was a modest dress that was still classy and fashionable. I was also able to wear a shade that looked as it was part of the actual dress.

This dress is gorgeous. I wore it to a Gatsby-themed black tie gala and felt gorgeous in it!

The fit was fantastic! It hugged my curves, but was still loose enough to move without difficulty. And the length was really great too. I was able to wear flats and have the effect that the dress was just skimming the ground (which I think is the intended effect). My one complaint, which I noticed other people had too, is that the lining is too long for this dress. Fortunately though, this is an easy fix with a little fashion tape along the hemline.

Beautiful shimmering lace!!

This was my second choice as a wedding dress and I actually liked the fabric better on this one but the style was a little plainer than I wanted. It has a small "gathering" on the right side that you really can't see in the model picture. It was so subtle I thought it was a defect at first then realized it was made like that. But it didn't do anything for the dress once it was on me. All in all a great dress but not the greatest fit for this curvy girl.

RTR let me swap the dress I ordered for this and it worked out perfectly!

This was my first time renting from RTR and I had actually ordered a different dress, but when the ordered dress was too small, they let me come in to their Flatiron store and pick a dress to swap it with. This dress was perfect and very flattering. I am 5'3" and usually a size 4, and the 6R fit great - even the length was fine with a pair of 3" heels.

So many women came up to me and told me how amazing I looked. The dress looked gorgeous on.

I wore this gorgeous dress to a wedding, it was just perfect. So many women loved my dress .. Of course including my husband. I was expecting the fit would not be true to size given some reviews, so I ordered the size 2R, even though I usually wear a 0. I did order a size 0 but for some reason it wasn't shipped at all. I need to talk to them about that. The dress was loose from the waist. I think the size 0 would have fit perfect. The height was perfect for my height and I wore 3 1/2 inch heels. The dress looked spectacular overall. It's so light weight, easy to dance with. I felt Absolutely lovely in this dress.

Great fit, felt very glamorous. the lining did show a little but I pinned the hem up a little. Comfortable and light to dance in. Since I got the long length I wore 3.5" heel.

I loved wearing such a beautiful dress that I couldn't otherwise afford.

This dress is beautiful and was extremely comfortable for me. I am 5'0 but with 4" heels the dress was just a tiny bit too long. I would definitely recommend wearing (I rented) some jewelry to help it pop even more - mine was simpler but worked out wonderfully.

Move over Hepburn and Jackie O

Very comfy and glamorous dress! I could wear a normal bra which is a plus (I am a 32DDD) but also needed spanx because of the form fitting skirt. The 6L was way too tight and short. The 8L fit perfectly but was barely long enough. My feet poked out at the bottom with 3" heels so I didn't worry about tripping on the hem, but an extra inch or two in length would have been nice. It would be too short for anyone taller. I got a million compliments!

This was a backup dress that I did not wear because the color and fabric made me look a lot like what I expect a mother of the bride would wear. Too old fashion for the event I was attending.

Beautiful and simple dress for a NYE wedding!

First experience with rent the runway and any concerns about trying it are now gone. Was attending a NYE wedding so wanted something for a fancier affair. The process was extremely easy. 3 months postpartum so ordered an 8 and 10 just in case - normally wear a 6 to 8. Both sizes fit but the 10 gave me just a bit more room and was really comfortable. Also loved the built in cups so no bra necessary. The dress was simple yet elegant and perfect for the occasion. Plus 3 months after baby I felt beautiful! The only reason I would not give it 5 stars is the length. I am only 5'2 and with a relatively low heel it seemed a tad short. But overall a great dress and wonderful first RTR experience.

Loved this dress-so comfortable!

Fit well, but almost too short. Had to make sure my heels weren't too tall. If you are taller than 5'6", you may want to get the Long size. I didn't like how the under later hung lower than the lace in the front. But that was the only real drawback. Got tons of compliments!

Super comfortable and easy to wear

This dress fit true to size. I originally ordered the2R and when it came it was way to short. I contacted RTR and the overnighted me the 2L. I loved this dress and my favorite thing about it was how comfortable it was and easy to move in.

Great for a black tie wedding!

I wore this dress to a black tie wedding, and received so many compliments! I wish I would have ordered the long. With my 3 inch heels the bottom didn't touch the ground, but that wasn't too bad because I had my son to keep up with and didn't trip or step on the bottom. The 10 closed, but I wanted the dress to be a little easier to move in, so I went with the 12.

For a military formal ball

I ordered 2 sizes which were 8R and 10R decided with 10R because it fit more comfortable but wished the length was a bit longer.. The 8R wasn't gonna work even if it fit because the inner length of the dress was longer than the actual lace of the dress. Overall I did receive a lot of compliments and I will definitely rent again!!

I cannot say how many compliments I got on this dress. Made me feel like a million bucks!

The dress I originally ordered did not come in time and this was actually my third choice for a backup dress, but holy cow it should have been my first. Worn to a marine corps ball and I was the only one wearing gold. Stood out in all the right ways, fit like a glove and truly made me feel beautiful.

Beautiful and Comfortable Dress

This dress had great potential, but I ended up not wearing it. The silk lining under the lace fell about an inch or two shorter than the lace overlay, so it looked awkward. Luckily the RTR Chicago showroom was helpful in making sure I had the right dress and even offered to pin up the lining, but then the dress was too short. I definitely wouldn't have though this was a Long dress. It barely grazed the top of my 3 inch heels, and I'm 5'8".

Classic and Comfortable

Fit very well. 4L was form fitting but a bit short with 3 1/2" heels. 6L still fit beautifully and was long enough. It did have more shine than expected, which was welcome! Built in bra cups, so no bra was needed. Lining does hang lower than the lace but it didn't bother me. Classically simple yet elegant dress for bridesmaids. I am also 4 months pregnant when I wore this and there was plenty of room for my mini bump. Highly recommend!

Sparkling Bridesmaid

One of my best friends got married recently and asked that all of her bridesmaids wear long, gold RTR gowns. Unfortunately, even though I rented a 4R, this dress was a little tight (but doable) but way too short. I'm only 5'4" had to wear my shortest heels, and the dress was still awkwardly short. You can't tell from this photo, but you could see my entire shoe below the dress. I'm not sure if someone hemmed this dress or if I was just accidentally sent a 4P? Maybe rent an L just in case. Other than that, the whole RTR experience was a great one for all of the bridesmaids and I will definitely rent again.

Pretty details. Great length for petites.

Luckily a 4R was available, the fit was perfect. I wore comfortable 2.5 inch heels and had my sister pin the dress up a tiny bit and it worked out great. The details feel subtle but definitely impressionable. A modest but sexy fit. Felt glamorous and pretty as a bridesmaid.

I received several compliments on this dress all night!

The fit was just right! I ordered the 6L since I saw in previous reviews that it ran short, so it was just right with my heels. Great dress and very comfortable. I was able to go bra-less thanks to the built in bra.

Back up dress- I wish I had worn it.

This is very classy. The dress is flattering to curves. The glitter and lace is really gorgeous. I am 5'1" and I was able to wear 5 " heels and the dress was not in the ground. I wish I had worn this dress, because the dress I wore had the drape style back, and I think I would have been more comfortable in this more conservative dress. I would love to rent this dress again!

Great Choice!

This dress was a very nice, formal dress. I was unsure when I first ordered it, but once it was on, compliments came from everyone. The dress was used a bridesmaid dress, but it definitely could be used for any formal event. I ordered 6-8, and I had to use the 8, which was perfect.

Fit like a glove

I wore flats and the 8L was just about the perfect length for my height. It was pretty comfortable, even with shapewear. I lost count of how many women came up to me to compliment the dress. The only minor issue is that it's mildly sheer on the upper back, so regular bra straps will likely show through a little. It didn't bother me at all though, so I wore a skin-tone regular bra.

Great dress in neutral color and simple style!

This dress was my backup dress, but it ended up being more comfortable than my first pick. It is a taupe color with silver, and paired well with nude shoes. It was the perfect length for a 2" heel. I am 5'2, and the regular length was perfect.

The top part fit me!

It was soooo pretty but it just wasn't the right size. I would've done better with the top half being a 10 and the bottom half being a 12. It was a long but it didn't seem like it was. I didn't like how the under fabric was longer than the gold outer fabric.

Crying all night long at the beauty of the wedding!

The dress is gorgeous and I definitely received compliments all night long. With that said, I usually wear a size 6, and wear dresses well as I have a small waist, but thankfully I ordered a back-up size 8L. It was still surprisingly tight and I didn't feel that it hugged the right places on my body. I wore heels and it was just long enough.

Another great rental!

I love RTR so much, and this dress only further solidified that. I rented this for my friends evening October wedding in Ohio. Both the 6 & 8 fit; had I been willing to wear shapewear all night I would've worn the 6... but it was BBQ wedding food so I opted to wear the 8 & not worry about it. As other reviews stated, the lining was longer than the overlay, but I figured some double sided tape would fix that easily. When I tried it on with heels, I realized it was definitely not long enough for the look I was going for so I ended up wearing flat sandals instead and it worked out great. I got tons of compliments on the dress, and was very comfortable all night. I would say that if you have broad shoulders or very muscular biceps, this might be a little tight. My movement was slightly limited but it wasn't bad at all and I barely noticed as the night went on. I would absolutely recommend this dress & might rent again!

The customer service! Chose 2 styles, felt they were wrong got 2more in 24hrs, went w 1st I chose

When I received the first two they were totally different. The first was the gold formal length. The second was blue hi/lo, both in 10 R. I had read all the reviews because of my size, shape. The zippers were hard and they stuck (which was stated numerous times) but I didn't remember reading they were snug through the middle. They were and the blue was a heavy gown ( I think I remember reading that, also). I called customer service on Friday at 1p, the day before my event. They didn't have the gold in the next size, so she sent me two sizes in another of my favorites that arrived the day of my event at 1030am! So impressed with customer service. Those were just too much sequins for me. I went with the very first and just wore a lot of Spanx. Also, there were at least 3 other of the same sequined dress at the event. Maybe, there could be a way to ask what event the renter is attending so there won't be the duplication. Overall, as a first timer this was a great experience.
