Fit was dumpy, breasts looked weird.

It was such a comfortable and forgiving dress!
I felt so comfortable in this dress all night for a black tie wedding I went to - I was happy to be in something so nice that allowed me to wear a regular bra, but was still so formal. I am pretty short and did also run a long dress, and it was perfect with my heels- the regular would have been too short for sure.

Feeling glowing and elegant in a gorgeous dress.
This dress was beautiful, glamourous but not ostentatious. It was very comfortable. Though I am not all that tall (5'5") I felt the vertical pleats made me look longer. The waistline offers helpful definition. I loved the grecian draping of this dress, but in a warm gold/brown color that didn't make me look like I should be holding up a pillar somewhere on a temple in Greece. I fit into both the Size 6 and Size 8, but wore the larger size just because it was a little more comfortable. The length worked with a low heel, so the hemline was just above the ground.

I liked this dress a lot, got a lot of compliments.
I am 5'6 and 120# and the two fit well, could have used a smaller size. If you usually wear a zero the 2 will be too big for you. I also thought the dress was ways too short for someone my height. The length is not for anyone 5'6 and over.

could have been better...
I'm fairly certain that the specific dress I received had been altered (perhaps it had stretched out over time?)... the left chest area was SUPER wonky... the dress itself fit perfectly and was really quite beautiful when I put it on. The problem with the left boob area unfortunately was so disastrous that even my boyfriend pointed it out (and he's not the most detail oriented person) I safety pinned the extra fabric back so it didn't look like I had one disformed saggy boob and wore it anyway since I paid for it! I think it would have been an amazing dress if it wasn't for that, and like I said I think it was something that was specific to the dress they sent me...

Color different from photo (it's black with a black & gold overlay) under arms itchy, VERY short
I received this, tried it on, and returned it. I am disappointed with the length; it doesn't touch the ground (definitely can't wear heels with it). I am now hoping to get a new dress in time for my wedding tomorrow

Not again
I rented this as my primary choice and thank goodness I got a backup. At 5'1" this made me look short and frumpy and awful. The material was also very scratchy on my arms.

Great dress - runs short.
This is a great dress. Black and gold metallic fabric...not the olive color that it looks on the website. A little ill-fitting on the top because of the way it is draped, but nothing that some fashion tape couldn't fix. I am short (5'2) and the 6R barely hit the floor with 3 inch heels on. I would go with the long size if you are taller than 5'3 and planning on wearing heels. I would also order a smaller size as your back-up (in the long, though). I had plenty of room in the 6. The dress does not cling at all and is well made. A little scratchy but modern and elegant.

I ended up wearing my other dress option but this was a nice dress. It would have been fine for a black tie wedding - but the other dress felt a little more unique.

It fit perfectly as it was custom made to my body and was comfortable all night. I was never tripping over the length, with my heels its was just fine.

Feeling like a model in this dress!
This dress fit true to size. The regular length was perfect with my 3 inch heels. Any higher and I might have needed the long. The dress was flowy in the right places and made me feel like a princess. I got so many compliments and can't wait to rent the runway again!

The fit was perfect!
This dress was very comfortable! I usually wear a 6, but tried on the 4 just in case and it fit just a little better. So I wore the 4L. This was the perfect Holiday party dress!

In the restroom, lots of other women said I looked hot.
I ordered the 4 as a backup, but that's what I wore. This dress is pretty flattering for all body types. I'm fairly flat chested, but the dress looked fine. A full-chested woman would look good in it too. I have a big butt for my body, but the 4 wasn't tight at all. It looks better if you go smaller.

Comfortable and perfect for the occasion
Loved the look of the dress and got lots of compliments on it. Overall it was comfortable and as a full chested gal, the straps were very supportive, which is always a positive. That said, the draping made me look like my chest was even bigger and since it's a little higher cut than in the picture, I thought it made me look a little dowdy. As others have mentioned, it runs on the short side so if you're any taller than 5'3" and planning to wear heels, I would order a L instead of a R.

Cheap fabric and cartoonishly short. If this was the only dress I had, I would have been sunk.
As you can see from the photo, the underlay stopped half way down my calf. I'm 5' 9", but still (the long wasn't available), it was extremely short. The overlay was very cheap-feeling and didn't look at all like it did in the photos. I wish I'd gotten a close-up. In the photos it looked textured and bronze, in person it was a scratchy sparkle layer. Also, the bust made a uni-boob.

Hi Gavel! So sorry to hear that the dress wasn't in pristine condition and you weren't satisfied with your rental. That is definitely not our intention so please make sure to contact a stylist so we can make sure to right this experience.

Frumpy...
I returned this dress because it was too short and made me look frumpy. I am 5'5 and the regular hit me above the ankle. The top looked very frumpy... I wouldn't recommend this dress for the athletic figure without a waist.

WAY TOO SHORT!!!!
Beautiful gown but, way too short. I am 5'3" and it didn't even hit the floor when I tried it on barefoot. I could not wear it as I refuse to wear flats to a black tie event. I put that it runs small because honestly....I don't know who could wear this dress due to the length unless they are under 4' tall.

Cheap material and way too short!!
I ordered a size 4R because the size guide said that the regular length should be fine for someone my height but the dress was bizarrely short! Fell right below my ankles and certainly would have looked awkward with any type of heel. Though the fit was otherwise nice, the material of the dress feels rather cheap. I wouldn't recommend it for a truly formal affair.

Beautiful and a little different than most gowns at the ball!
I wore this dress for an inaugural ball and could not have been happier! The fabric has some stretch so it was quite comfortable. I ordered a size up for my back up but wore my normal size. I was able to wear a regular bra which is always a plus with a bigger bust! I wore 4 inch heels and the length was perfect, it just skimmed the floor, however, if you are tall this dress would be much too short.

Great silhouette!
I wore this dress to a law school formal and it was perfect for the event. I got tricked by all the reviews saying this dress was too short and I wanted to ensure that it would still be floor length even with heals, so I ordered the long rather than the regular. However the long was a little too long for me, I had to hold it up anytime I was walking. Other than that, I was really happy with the silhouette and the style of the dress.

Great shine, glam dress perfect for a wedding or fancy night out
Dress is very comfortable (which isn't common with sequin dresses) and has great coverage for still wearing a bra with straps. Lightweight shimmery material looks better and photographs better than it looks on the website.

So flattering post baby!
I was disappointed when I first received it because I thought the material looked really cheap - definitely not $600 worth as is the actual retail price of the dress. However, the dress was so, so flattering that it almost entirely made up for it. I just had two kids back to back and am really self conscience about my baby weight in the middle, this relieved me from spending a lot of money on what I hope is a temporary size, the agony of going store to store looking for a tummy hiding dress, and the time involved. I looked very different from everyone and that made me feel pretty good, too. I wore with shiny gold shoes and black earrings, although shiny gold earring would go also. I ordered both the 8R and 8L because I heard it ran short with heels. I am 5'2" and I was able to wear 4 inch heels with the regular dress, BUT the dress hung about 1/2 inch above the floor.

Looks cheap
I rented this dress for a black tie wedding, and didn't end of wearing it. The material looked very cheap and the worst part was it ran super short. I am tall, but the dress barely made it to my ankle (and I rented a tall!). Resulted in a not so fun last minute shopping trip....

Hourglass figure? Recommend!
This is a beautiful dress. Actually, it wasn't my first pick. The dress I had rented didn't show and this was one of the dresses they sent as a replacement (which went better than I expected - they really do take care of you). The dress was perfect for my hourglass figure. I used a little body tape to keep the shoulder straps in place. The color is unusual, but I put it with a stunning pearl shell necklace. The long worked well with my heels. I received lots of complements. I would recommend!
AmyJanuary 25, 2012
How would you describe the color? It looks almost green in the picture, but I see someone else said it was more like copper. Thoughts?
AlissaJanuary 25, 2012
Hi Amy! The color is definitely a metallic copper tone and looks great on any complexion.

I thought it would be copper but it was black when I received it.

Not my favorite
I didn't love this dress. It looked much more sophisticated on the model than it did in person. The fabric was not as nice as I had expected and I wasn't crazy about the cut. It did fit true to size, although it was a little on the short size. (I'm just under 5'5" and would have need very short heels.) Luckly, I ordered another dress that was amazing.

Very pretty, fit well
This dress made me feel great all night long. Even though the sequins were a bit scratchy around the arms, the overall look was very old hollywood glam. The dress was true to size, and the material was a bit stretchy and forgiving, so probably would have accommodated a range of sizes. The draping across the stomach hid the tummy, which was something I was a bit concerned about from the picture. I'm 5'9 and the dress was exactly long enough when I was barefoot, so I just wore flat sandals instead of heels. The slip underneath is about 2 inches shorter than the overlay, which was a bit weird, but it was fine. Overall, was very pleased with how this dress turned out.

Great dress, but not best
This was a beautiful dress and it fit nicely. I ordered two dresses for this event though and the other one (the Nicole Miller) was more stunning. The fabric on this one was a bit scratchier, though the dress looked great and would have worked well.

Perfect
I wore this to a fundraiser gala and felt great all night. The color was perfect for February and the dress fit well too. The draping is beautiful. The color is definitely coppery with some black (not brown or olive as it looks in the picture). I had to wear flats, otherwise it would have been too short, but I was ok with that. Also, the dress is not quite as open on top as it appears in the picture.

The service from Rent the Runway was exactly as easy and flawless as they described. I will certainly rent again. Thank you!
I am 5'6'', and ordered a 6L. The length was perfect with heels. The color of the dress is slightly different than it appears on the website. It is black and gold, not olive. However, the dress was stunning and flattering. The draped detail is beautiful, and the picture shown on the website does not do it justice. I received endless compliments all night. Thank you!

Black Tie Wedding
I really loved wearing this dress--felt elegant but different enough that I wasn't just wearing black. It fit really well, and I am quite busty. My only small complaint is that the length for the regular is a bit short. I am 5'3" and wore 3 inch heels which were definitely too tall. If you are tall or like heels, I would think about trying both lengths when you order.

Just Itchy
I ended up wearing my back-up dress because both sizes were TOO small. I would have still worn my back up dress since the sequins and fabric on this dress were so itchy. I know this dress would have rubbed my armpits raw if it had fit.
