This is navy - actually thought it was black when I reserved it.
Really loved the dress. Was super comfortable and elegant. I loved the open back and was really easy to wear a normal bra

I felt like a princess!!
Wow this dress is awesome! As a short girl the length was great. I'm 5'1/5'2 and I wore 4 inch heels and the regular length was just hitting the floor no dragging fabric. I have a large bust and was able to wear my true size without having to size up for my bust, this is very rare! I also was able to wear a regular bra without it showing in the cut out back. I love the cuffs on the wrists of this dress :) all in all I felt amazing!

Comfortable all night!
This was my backup dress and ended up being what I wore. This was certainly the most comfortable gown I have worn. The Regular was long enough to wear flats (I wear a Short in jeans), the slit was high but conservative (meaning it didn't open at every opportunity), and the beaded cuffs were not an irritant/issue at all. It's also worth noting the arms are roomy. This was the perfect dress to wear as a black tie gala volunteer. I would not have worn it as an attendee.

Classy and comfortable!
Dress fits true to size, very comfortable material. The midsection rouching is perfect to hide any belly. The detail on the cuffs is really pretty. I wore the long and it wasn't all that long ( I'm about 5'10" and it barely touched the ground without shoes). I would totally recommend it anyone!

Just okay
I tried on the 8 first. It was so short. I tried on the 6 just to see how it fit,. It ended up being longer and fitting better. It was strange. Maybe the 8 shrunk somehow? The lining inside the dress would ride up a little bit after sitting. The slit was fine when standing/walking, but would fall open pretty revealing when seated This dress was just okay. I wouldn't rent it again though.

first purchase, very happy with the service :)
I was leery of the dress when I first got it, I rented a 6R and an 8R. the 6 was clearly worn more often and had a few flaws in the dress itself (stitching coming apart, etc). I wore the dress to an nye dinner so I wanted something that would fit me even with a food baby. it fit perfectly and was extremely comfortable. I felt very confident wearing the dress and received many compliments!

This dress made me feel simply beautiful!
The dress was very comfortable. It was elegant and simple which is exactly the look I was trying to achieve for my dear friend's New Years Eve wedding. It is not black but navy blue which I knew from previous reviews. I ordered it in long and really happy I did. I'm 5'8" at first I thought the dress was too short for it being specifically long. Once I placed on my heals, it seemed to work and was not as short as I originally though it would be. I also rented a clutch purse and the necklace shown in the photo. It all went together perfect. My first time experience with RTR is an A and I'll definitely rent again!

Beautiful, comfortable and elegant!!
I wore this dress to a Mardi Gras ball in January! The sleeves were perfect for the cooler weather. The dress was more beautiful than in the picture and so comfortable! Great dress to dance in and move around! The dress is a little short, however it worked out considering I usually wear flats to these types of events! I would definitely recommend this dress and would possibly rent again!!!

Loves this dress, the fit was perfect and I had people stop me to tell me how lovely the dress was!
The fit was great, it hugged all the right curves and the ruching in the front made it a little more forgiving so when I ate and drank i didnt have to worry so much about "sucking it in" i had people stop in their tracks to tell me how great i looked and i felt like a celebrity all night! I ordered a 4 and 6, the 6L was perfect for me and i wore about 4 inch heels. Absolutely loved this dress!!

Arrived on time, great condition, easy returns!
I'm 5 ft 4 in and ordered the 14L because the regular was not available and I wanted a dress with long sleeves due to cooler weather and an outside venue. The dress was great. I did wear a very high heel, a grey Michael Kors peep toe pump with a platform. Probably gave me another 5 or so inches. Again, no concern with length. Got a lot of compliments. Also ordered earrings from RTR to match. I believe they were Alexis Bittar. The dress is navy NOT black. Very pretty but I must have not read the description :). Highly recommend!

This dress was exactly what I was looking for. It was elegant and fit perfectly.
I found the fit true to size; it draped well and was very flattering - especially in the mid- section! I loved that it was navy instead of traditional black. Would use RTR again for sure!

Great dress for a winter black tie event!
This dress was true to size and very comfortable to wear. I originally ordered the Regular but it was too short so RTR sent me the Long (I'm 5'5"). I got comments all night about the dress!

Perfect dress for a formal, conservative work event.
First time using RTR and I'm hooked! Rented this dress for a black tie work event that was out of town. Everything showed up at the hotel and was great! The dress is very flattering and comfortable. Perfect for a semi conservative event.

Perfect, comfortable, beautiful = this dress
This dress was a perfect fit for a black tie charity ball. I was able to wear a regular bra with this dress. I am 5'3" and I wore 3" heals the length was perfection! The fabric is super comfortable and forgiving I had a baby three months ago in this dress you would never know! This is my third dress rental and I have yet to be disappointed by RTR! The dress is very class with a touch of sexy with the opening in the back and very tasteful slit in the front. Don't hesitate rent this dress!

Back was stunning, loved the sparkle on the sleeves
I enjoyed this dress for the black tie wedding I went to. I read a review that said the dress, in long, was long enough for tall women. I did not find this to be true. This dressed needed several more inches to make me feel completely comfortable in the dress. Since it was so short, I decided to wear heels that matches the sparkle in the sleeve. Overall, beautiful dress but would not rent it again.

loved the blue and especially the cuff details
I loved this dress. It was a little bit on the long side but I am also 5'1... I did wear 5" heels with the dress. I was concerned about the knot detail in the midsection being unflattering but it hit me in the right place!

Conservative, but elegant
This was my back up dress and I ended up going with the first option. Elegant but on the side of matronly. Still a great option if you need a high neck, long sleeve formal dress that covers almost all skin.

Great comfortable and modest formal dress
This dress is draped beautifully and hides any problem areas. It is a great dress for a formal affair especially if you need to dress modestly or in the cold. It does actually have a fair high slit if you sit down. It's navy and I paired it with silver accessories.

Classy and flattering!
I wore this dress as a bridesmaid in a formal wedding. The material is very thick and beautiful, and the cut is ultra flattering. I wore the 6 instead of my usual 8 because the hips allowed for a little extra room and the smaller bodice fit beautifully. The bling on the sleeves is subtler than I expected from the photos and looks gorgeous in person. I loved this dress and got a ton of compliments!

Classy and comfortable!
I wore this dress to my husband's Marine Corp Ball and it was absolutely perfect! I ordered the 2R and 4R. The 2 fit okay but was too short even without shoes on. The 4 fit perfect with my 3in heels. It does open in the front, making it easy to move around in. The sparkle on the sleeve made the dress look very glamorous. It was flattering and comfortable. The long sleeves were great for the November weather. I wore a statement necklace and simple stud earring. I definitely recommend this dress!!

Flattering and functional!
I wore this dress for a New Years Eve wedding and it was perfect! Regardless if the event is black tie or just formal this gown will work! It was comfortable and I was even able to dance without having to worry about garment mishaps. I was also able to wear my usual undergarments-no slip or spanks are needed (unless you want them)! There is a slit in the front that isn't very noticeable unless you're being dipped, but I didn't have any issues with it. I would definitely recommend renting from Rent the Runway and plan to do it again myself for another formal event I have coming up.

30 weeks pregnant and still felt gorgeous!
This dress is incredibly flattering! I was really nervous because I was 30 weeks pregnant but I just ordered up a few sizes and it fit great. Sleeves would've been too short if Id gotten my regular size, so I recommend getting the L.

Beautiful dress!
I ordered this dress in a 2L and 4L. The 2L was plenty long but the 4L was very short. Also, I had to wear a strapless bra because my bra straps showed in the back. The one thing I didn't realize about this dress is that the front has a slit that opened up when I sat down. Overall I loved this dress and I got many compliments!

I could have gotten a 2 regular but it wasn't available. The size 4 is what I usually wear anyhow so it did fit well only a little loose in the arms.

More beautiful in person
Wore this for an annual awards dinner and loved it. The small open back is s nice touch to the dress, the sequins on the cuff are s nice touch and the rouching in the front give it a nice thickness. The layer in the front makes the dress comfy and sexy- great rental and I'd wear again if it weren't because I like trying different dresses for these events!

Sleek and sophisticated! I felt like a million bucks.
The jersey knit gave the dress some stretch and the ruching made the midsection more flattering. I absolutely loved the long sleeves with embellished cuffs. The high neckline adds to the sophistication, while the cut out in the back and leg slit offer some sexy elements. It's the perfect dress for any formal occasion. It is a dark navy, but looks black in the online photos. I tend to wear a size 10, so I felt the dress ran a little big.

I was in a room full of women in beautiful dresses and I felt glamorous.
This dress has a real quality feel and look to it. The material is heavy enough that it gives a beautiful drape, the style is flattering and conservative at the same time. The bling at the cuffs is a simple and fun adornment. I ordered both a size 6 and a size 4. The 4 definitely fit better and I am a solid size 6. Enjoy!

...short...
For the first time ever in life a 14 was large at the bust. Gave me some puffy action I didn't like. The dress is very elegant and sophisticated. Unfortunately it was too short and I decided not to wear it. I will def order the Long for my next wedding in Nov.

Beautiful charity gala for children's hospital
The dress kind of smelled wet (best way to describe it). The hardware on the dress also had minor scratches but overall it was a beautiful dress. I rented the 8R and the 10L (only sizes available on such short notice). The 8R fit beautifully but was too short and I did not want my shoes to show that much. (I am 5'3"). 10L was a bit roomy but it was the perfect length.The dress has a subtle slit. Everyone loved it. Will use RTR again.

i am 5'6", 125lbs, wear a 28E, waist 26", hips 37" and i wore a 4R. the dress was form fitting but not tight. it was a bit loose in my waist and at the bottom of the cutout on the back of the dress. overall though it fit fine, and i was very comfortable at the tartan ball. would recommend for pear or hourglass shapes.

this was the size that I was supposed to wear but it was so big. I ended up wearing the smaller one. Once I finally got my right size on I was extremely happy with the look. I went to a church function and it was just perfect. very modest but still showed my curves

Great for winter wedding! Super comfortable, and flattering.
I had ordered size 6, ran big and did not fit well. RTR was super helpful and sent the size 4 and it was perfect!
