Easy, elegant look.

This dress is beautiful and has a flattering fit. Got lots of compliments! I am very tall, and the long fell to my ankles - you could completely see my shoes/feet wearing heels, which was fine but would have liked it a bit longer. One thing to note, I had to wear a strapless bra because the strap cuts in further than I expected so a regular bra strap would show.

NIce cut and fit!

Size worn: 12R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress fit perfectly, was a flattering cut and was age appropriate. It had an interesting neckline and I thought that it distinguished itself a bit from the the typical strapless evening gown or low-cut v-necked dress. As others have said, the zipper is difficult. The length was right for me with heels, but the Regular might run short on some.

Fit was as described however not very flattering. Doesn't nearly give you the waist look that shows on this model --- does not cinch the waist as you would like, it would have been comfortable and I would have worn if in a pinch.

Loved wearing this dress. Perfect draping on the full-ish skirt which complemented by shape and made it fun to walk in with heels -- I wore 3.5" and my toes just peeked out when walking but the dress didn't touch the ground at any point -- any higher I think would have made the dress look too short. Great dress for lady looking to highlight her arms and upper body.

I ordered this dress in a 4L - it was the absolute perfect length! I wore completely flat sandals with it and it just skimmed the ground. The 4R would've been too short. The dress hugged my body perfectly, not too tight anywhere. Made my waist look super tiny.

If you're small chested, size down. If you're of average height, wear tall shoes!

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this for a formal church wedding with a country club reception. I usually am a size 6 or 8 (at least in the Badgley Mischka dresses I've rented) since I need to accommodate my curvy hips and backside. For this dress I rented a 6 and a 4 and the 4 worked great with my small chest (34 B, 25 1/2" waist) and the skirt portion was very forgiving to my lower half. This dress comes in at your natural waist. I'm long waisted, and the dress hit right where I wanted it to. I'm not sure if short waisted gals might have a problem? I'm a smidge above 5'5 and wore 4 1/2 heals which left the bottom of the dress just barely above the floor. I really loved the way this dress fit and I was happy with the rental.

It fit true to size. The zipper on this particular dress was a bit sticky, but nothing unmanageable. This was the emergency replacement dress, due to a poor fit on my original choice; yet this pick worked out! The dress was comfortable both sitting and while dancing. I am only 5 feet tall and had 5 inch heels on, and the dress was still long (about two inches on the floor). I did know the dress was going to be long on me, since there was no petite option (and I needed a dress shipped out stat!).

Loved this dress! The material is nice and thick, which made it lay nice. It ran a little small on me, but that might be because I'm 2 months pregnant. Loved the way the shoulders are cut.

Classy & Easy

Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This was my first time ordering from RTR and absolutely loved it! The two dresses I received (6L and 4L) were both the perfect length (I'm 5'10") but I ended up wearing the 4L to my formal afternoon wedding. It was comfortable and I received a ton of compliments on it all night long! If you're on the fence of what sizes to get, I'd recommend going down a size for this particular dress. Other random pieces of advice: wear a strapless bra; plan on wearing flats if you're 5'10'' or taller or it might look short; the zippers on both dresses were very sticky so be gentle :) Overall, I loved it and will definitely rent again!

This dress drapes beautifully, but still has a cinched waist to show off your figure!

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was the back-up dress since my original choice was "returned damaged beyond repair," but I was actually happier with this choice! I love the color blocking which makes this more interesting than just a mono-colored dress. The magenta wasn't too "loud" to be distracting, but still caught your eye. I wore this for a formal Navy event and it was hard picking the size because I vary from 0-4 depending on the company and cut. I have a smaller waist, but broader shoulders and a bigger bust (32 DD). To give you an idea, typically, I wear a 0 for work/pencil skirts and 2 for non-zip up dresses, but since this zips all the way up the 4 fit nicely. I wore nipple stickies instead of a bra since the top part was already fitted because of my bust. I also wore 3 inch heels which was perfect because the dress fell just above floor length, but I still held on to it when I walked because I didn't want to damage it! Very comfortable material and didn't have any problems! Would definitely recommend!

ZIPPER HAZARD

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
LOVED this dress. Got it for my mother to wear to a black tie wedding. However, we could not get the zipper to work at all. The fabric is so bunched in the middle that where the zipper catches there is too much material to get it up. Couldn't wear it. Beautiful Dress though. Maybe sizing up will help but then the dress might be big on you.

Great fit and very comfortable. The dress was a good match for the black tie affair. Very good to sit, eat and dance, which I did plenty if. The dress was a little long, so I would wear a nice 4" heel with it (I am 5'7). So happy with this rental.

I ended up wearing the 4L even though the 6 was still comfortable. The 6 was just a tad too loose up top for my taste. The dress was incredibly comfortable and I got a ton of great comments all night! Classy and perfect for a black tie wedding!

I wore this for a black tie wedding. It fit perfectly, however, the zipper was a little difficult to get up at the point where the fabrics meet. I'm 5'8" and wore 3" heels, and the dress hit just above the floor. While I typically like longs dresses to hit the floor, I was very pleased with the overall fit and look of the dress!!

The dress was too long for my 5ft height and in the picture the bottom looks hot pink but when i got the dress it was a burgundy red. i ended up not wearing it because the zipper wouldn't go past the bunched up where the black and the red meet in the middle. i am usually a size 8 but there wasn't much extra fabric for me to grab to get the invisible zipper up.

Having a perfect dress for a perfect fall wedding!

Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The dress is beautiful! Looks exactly like the photos. It's very comfortable but the girls are right, you have to wear a strapless bra with it. My only complaint is because the of the full length, the skirt is a little heavy. I'm 5'8 and had 3 inch heels and the length was absolutely perfect. I wore this to a fall wedding and received many compliments. I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to make a statement. It was my first time trying rent the runway, and would do it it again in a heartbeat!

I loved the look of this dress. The zipper was challenging like other reviewers mentioned, but the dress is really pretty and very comfortable. I was able to wear 3-1/2 inch heels without an issue. The side gathering of the waist is a nice cut. This is a good holiday dress.

I was hoping, as a 6'2 tall and curvy woman, that the 8L dress would fit--unfortunately, it only hit my ankles, even without heels on! I love this dress, but probably won't rent a floor-length dress again! I ended up having to go out and buy a dress that would fit my tall frame (which I then returned after the event).

The architectural neckline of this dress really makes it stand out!

Size worn: 10R
Rented for: Wedding
The 8 and 10 both fit, but the bottom half draped more nicely in the 10. I'm 5'6", and the regular length was perfect with 4" heels. Others have complained about the zipper. Both zipped just fine, but the 8 was more stubborn than the 10. Perfect for a pear shaped woman as the synched-in waist really highlights that area, and the bottom has room to breathe. While it is long, it isn't over the top, which was nice because very few people go all-out for black tie weddings these days. It felt like a happy medium between a cocktail dress and a formal ball gown. Definitely recommend it! Friends commented that I was "best dressed!"

Great conservative dress for a formal work event. Very forgiving, flattering, and comfortable. Didn't have the "wow" factor of other dresses I've rented, but it was perfect for the event, which was very long with a lot of sitting. It is VERY long (I'm 5'4'') so expect to wear tall heels if you're short!

I wore the dress for an event at an art gallery and it was perfect. The dress was very comfortable and flattering. I loved that it allowed me to keep the jewelry minimal (I just went with medium sized, dark blue studs and a simple braclet). The 12 was slightly big but I needed the L so that I could wear heels. Overall, I would definitely recommend this dress.

Very flattering fit on the natural waist. I have broader shoulders and it fit perfect, not tight in my armpits at all. I still wore 4" heels with the 4P at 5'2.

There was not much of a difference in size between the 4L and 6L. I could have worn either one, but the 6L had a bit more breathing room in the waist. I'm 5'9, and was able to wear a 2.5inch heel and the dress still covered my feet!

I rented this as a back up dress for a semi-formal event. I was a little hesitant because I'm 28 and a mother of 2 and most of the review pictures had much younger girls wearing it. I ended up LOVING this one! It didn't photograph as well as it looked though and the zipper was very difficult to get up and down. The neckline was unique and wonderful and the dress fit was perfect! Comfortable, but still felt formal! I wore it with 4 inch heels and it was the perfect length.
