Fairytale
I rented this dress for my surprise courthouse wedding. Wedding planning was stressing me out to the max, so we decided to ditch everyone and their expectations and do a surprise courthouse wedding. We hired a photographer and made an appointment. We bought nothing and rented everything and the dress was the perfect touch. I am tall and it still touched the floor. It added the perfect touch of elegance needed to make my courthouse wedding the best day ever.

This dress was worn for our formal portion of our engagement photos. It worked perfectly!
The fit was great and hugged me in all the right places. The dress material is not very breathable so I would not recommend this dress for an outdoor midday event in the summer. This is a dress I would rent again and recommend to others.

Runs a little small, but overall an amazing gown! Loved the high neck and open back.

Pretty In Pink
I felt so glamorous in this dress! The fit is tight, as others have said. The front hem was shorter than the lining, but not by much. There was also a small smudge on the front of the dress that looked to be an old stain not entirely removed. I'm 5'10" and wore 3" heels and the length was spot on.

Elegant!
This dress is beautiful and I received many compliments throughout the night! The hook/clasp at the top for the bow was a little tricky. Pretty much every time I moved the clasp would undo, but the hooks stayed in place so it wasn't that bad or noticeable during the night. Overall the fit was great, it was a little tight in the rib cage area. I'm 5'4" and wore about 3-4 in heels and the dress came perfectly to the floor. It was easy to dance and move in.

Perfect backup!!!
Thank goodness for backups! The original dress didn't fit and was all wrong. But this simple number is everything! It's perfect for a classic elegant look. I wore 4 inch heels and was able to dance the night away with no problems. I would rent this dress again!

Beautiful Blush!
I wore this dress as a bridesmaid in my best friends wedding. The color was a true blush, and fit perfectly! I ended up wearing the 4 because the 6 did not come with the bow! Great renting experience!!

This dress was amazing! I received many complements all night!
This dress ran a little tight, which is why I elected to get a size larger, than what I typically wear. I felt more comfortable, especially since I was not able to wear a bra. The cut made my chest look normal, which was another concern I had with this dress.

Love this dress!
Fit perfectly got so many compliments. The fabric doesn't have a lot of give but fits like a glove and is so flattering. Did not wear a bra just petals and fabric was thick enough to conceal. Would most definitely rent again! ( 5'10 and 134 lbs.) the long was plenty long enough and I wore only a small heel

Really pretty dress!
I loved the material and the fit. It was very comfy! One negative though, was it really takes some houdini work because the back is open and low. I figured it out but felt like I had to check on it all night! I sized up one size and it fit well!

Blush Dream!
I wore this as a bridesmaid's dress, and I loved it! I am usually between a 0 and 2, but upon reading the reviews, I ordered a 2R and a 4R. I wore the 2R and it fit like a glove! I probably could have fit into the 4R as well, but since I have a smaller chest, the 2R was best. The fabric is thick and had a little stretch, so it was comfortable all night. I am 5'2", and I wore 4.5" heels, and the length was perfect - no drag - so I hope that gives you an idea on the length. I got a TON of compliments, particularly about the back of the dress. I would absolutely rent this dress again!

Beautiful dress!
This was my back up dress which I ended up not wearing. It is a gorgeous fit, color, fabric, everything is amazing about it. The fabric is thick with no give to it so it fits just like a glove and you may want to size up if you're in-between sizes. I was afraid I would be to warm in the dress due to some health issues and chose the other dress for breathability. I probably could have gotten away with a 4R rather than L in this dress. The front hem was intact but flipped out in the front making it look torn. Still, very beautiful and I will certainly consider it for future events.

I loved the simplicity but still having the wow factor on the backside.
This dress was only a tad bit small at the chest area but my back up size, 6R, was too big. So I just wore the 4R and was very pleased with the dress

Loved this dress!
This dress was perfect! The length was perfect with a high heel. The only hard part was with the open back you wouldnt be able to wear a full bra. Other than that it was the perfect dress!

Loved the dress so much, I wanted to keep it.
The dress fit like a glove. I really felt special in it. The fabric was fitted, but moved well and was very comfortable. I think the dress should have been better inspected prior to shipping. When it arrived, we had to quickly purchase a new hook clip and snap for the back/top. The existing hook and snap were both broken and without replacements, the back/top would not remained closed.

Stunning form fitting dress!
The fabric was, for me, the best part of the dress! Just the right amount of stretch and the weight made it drape over my body in the perfect way. I could wear nothing underneath and it showed every curve. So if your not 100% happy with your body it might be uncomfortable. I also had not extra room for any more boob, so if your busty this dress wont work for you either. I probably would have worn nipple pasties if I had any but I wasn't too concerned. I wore the 4R with 3" heals and the dress was the perfect length. The color was so lovely, I felt amazing the entire night!

I loved this gown. It hugged all of the right places, has great lines, and a stunning back. The only minor issue was getting the snap that held the bow in place to stay put all night.

Ordered this for a work Christmas party. BEAUTIFUL beautiful dress. Got so many compliments.
Usually a size 4, but if you have some curves I recommend going a size up, it doesn't leave much to the imagination. I'm 5'8 and the R worked perfectly rather than the long.

Did not wear it
This dress washed me out terribly - although it is probably just my skin tone (a lot of red in it). The back did not fit properly either and had gaps on either side although tight in the stomach area. A beautiful dress, just not for me. I am a tall (5'11") and the long was perfect.

My first Rent the Runway experience and I was very pleased with the quality of this dress!
I ordered a 4L and it fit PERFECTLY: I am 5'8 and about 135-140lbs and wore this to a company Gala event. I wore a 3-4 inch heel and the length was perfect. My only complaint would be the bow/clasp in the back, it did not stay clasped and I had to fix it a few times throughout the night. Other than that I was very impressed with the quality of the dress, it felt great on and I received a lot of compliments. I would definitely recommend this dress!

I got so many compliments on this dress.
I wore this for my boyfriend's military banquet and I was a little worried about how tight it was but it was perfect. The low back and the bow made it fun but I still felt classy. The color was great for a summer event and even though I wasn't super tan it still looked good. It was a little tight so I do recommend getting a size up but the length was perfect with 3 inch heels.

The Back of this dress! Classy, yet sexy! So many compliments. It fit perfectly!
I'm right under 5'4. Wear a 32D and weigh 110/12 pounds. I typically wear a 0 or 2 in a dress. The 0 was a bit snug. It zipped but looked too tight. The 2 fit just fine and the length was great with 4" heels. I would definitely recommend going with the larger of the 2 sizes you typically wear. I highly recommend this dress. Pictures turned out great too! :)

Loved this dress! Lots of compliments
I loved this dress. I rented a 2R and a 4R. The 2R fit perfectly just a bit long, which was no big deal. I am just under 5'6 and wore three inch heels. Check out my Insta for more pics @fallon_gray. My first experience with RTR was great and the renting process was so easy! I rented a dress for the next wedding I will be attending the next day. I love that they give you a second size option to eliminate the "what if it doesn't fit" stress. I received a lot of compliments and highly recommend this dress and RTR.

This dress was super comfortable even though it was quite form fitting. I usually run between a size 2 / 4 and the 4 fit perfectly. No way I could've gone any smaller though! At 5'6", it was also the perfect length with a 4 inch heel.

This dress looked great in person and in photos! Very comfortable and classic!
This dress was perfect in every way except that the ones I received were clearly used... the material was somewhat run down. One of the dresses didn't have the tie in the back attached. It was very comfortable, however, and I looked and felt great in it! I was worried it would show my belly curves, but the material is actually somewhat thick and sturdy. Very flattering dress!

I wore this dress to a military ball in the middle of August!
The dress runs a bit small so make sure you order a size larger than you usually wear. Unfortunately the dress I got didn't have the bow in the back so that was disappointing and I wish I knew that ahead of time. All in all it was a great dress. The material was soft and breathable but does wrinkle easily. Got so many compliments on it!

Gorgeous, fits like a glove!
I rented the 2L and the 4R, and ended up wearing the 2L. The 4R fit, but the 2L fit a little more snugly/more flattering. Regarding length, I have the same issue with all gowns I've rented from RTR - to go L or R with a size! I'm 5'7", and the 4R fell 1.5 inches above the ground when I wore 3" heels. The 2L fell perfectly, just hitting the ground, when I wore 5" heels. Definitely be conscientious of the length here- I suggest being prepared with different height heels, depending of whether you rent an L or an R size! Other than length, the dress was perfection. I rented this as a bridesmaid for a wedding. I did not have to wear a bra, because the dress fit snugly over my chest. I felt comfortable all night! My ONE COMPLAINT - and this is a complaint I've had in the past with RTR - the lining of the gown fell below the hem! I've found this happens when a dress is overly dry-cleaned; the material of the dress itself shrinks a bit overtime, while the lining and/or slip stretches. RTR, you need to do a better job of taking care of this issue in between rentals!! I had to use double-sided tape to bring the lining up inside the dress. But other than that, love this dress and highly recommend!

Both classic and fun!
I am usually between a 4 and a 6 but, after trying the size 4 at the store (way too tight), I was afraid not even the 6 would fit. Thankfully, it did! I was even able to wear very thin spanx with no problems (the ones that go up to the waist). Gorgeous!

AMAZING DRESS
I wanted this dress for another wedding, but some issues came up and they couldn't send it to me. This dress was WORTH THE WAIT!!! Total knockout. Tons of compliments. It fits well in the body, but it was a little long and I had on 3 - 4 in heels. I normally wear a 0 but that wasn't available, so I went with the 2. Maybe going the size up was good for fit in the body but not for length. Pick your battles...the dress is WORTH IT!

Such an elegant dress!
This dress made me feel amazing! The fit was very flattering and the color was perfect for a summer wedding. I received compliments on it all night. It does run a bit small and I had ordered the 6R as my backup (but couldn't wear it due to damages on the dress upon receiving it) but all in all the fit and fabric were so flattering that I felt comfortable wearing my normal size. The length was perfect: I'm 5'4" and wore 3 inch heels.

Bridesmaid dress
Love the back of this dress! I wore it as a bridesmaid dress and it was stunning. My only complaint is that the back of the dress makes it really hard to find a good pair of spanx to wear with it. I am pretty tall with heels and felts that the dress dragged a lot on the floor. Overall, I would rent this dress again.

Very flattering!
Runs small so I wore a size up. Lots of compliments. Very flattering fit. The only downside was the bow in back kept coming unclasped.
