Incredible, classic vibe! Definitely a stand-out dress.
This dress was great. First, the fit: it was awesome because it hid my small bust and pouchy tummy. It's very drapey and slinky so it's good to cover up any unwanted bumps. The length was perfect for me... (I wore a 0L with 3 in heels, & am 5'8). Second, the dress: the entire classic vintage style screams maturity and elegance. If you want to be told you look like a Grecian goddess, this is your dress. The little sequins add just enough glitz to glam it up without going overboard. #grecian #formal

Renting this dress turned a great night into the PERFECT night!
I loved this dress! I originally rented it as my backup, but when my first choice (Carlos Miele- Caribbean Coral Escape Gown) wasn't the look I was going for a non-profit event- check out arvf.org-I decided on this one...and I'm so glad I did! It was comfortable, flattering, and made my night awesome. I'm tall, but I wore 3 inch nude heels, and the 4R still grazed the floor at the perfect length. I wore spanx, but they weren't a necessity, and I used some fashion tape on the chest just to be safe. The color was exactly what I expected, and it was just a really beautiful dress. Strangers gave me compliments, I was told I looked like a goddess, and I felt great which was the best part! RTR made it so easy to have no worries about what I was going to wear or how I was going to look and feel! The perfect dress for a formal event.

Perfect Late Summer Formal Gown
I felt like the dress fit, but I felt my bust was too big for this dress. I had to keep lifting the front so my bra didn't show. I did wear a belt like the model because it looked cheesy without one. The dress was a little long even with some high shoes. It was OK because I just lifted it a little while walking. Overall, it was a pretty dress and I felt fancy enough for the formal event.

Absolutly Stunning!!!
I wore this dress for an evening wedding and it was perfect! The material has some stretch and has beautiful draping so this dress is very forgiving if you're curvy. The cowl neck hangs a little low...nothing too revealing but I was going to a family wedding so I was being extra conservative. Nothing a little double stick tape couldn't fix! The only thing to be careful of is that the dress is long. I'm 5' 8" and wore 4" heels and the dress just grazed the ground. I probably could have ordered the regular length and have been fine.

Beautiful gown!
I wore the size 2L. At least I think it was a 2L! I'm 5'8" and found some beautiful 5 inch heels for the event. However, I couldn't wear them because the dress was just too short!!!!! We ended up hunting all over the city that day for heels that would work. They were 3 inch heels in the end. Once I got the right shoes, the dress was great! I got so many compliments and it was surprisingly comfortable!

Would have been 5 stars BUT the beading came off as the night went on.
Good for curvy girls, but beware the bust line does have a lot of draping. It is a gorgeous dress that has not been well kept.

The dress is truly elegant.
This dress was my original pick and I was in love with it except the color was horrible for my light skin-tone. I did not end up wearing t but if you have a tanner color I would definitely recommend it.

Absolutely great dress for an unforgettable New Years Eve Wedding!!
After a minor set back with the original dress I ordered....this dress was placed onto my order as a replacement. I was in the house party for a New Years Eve wedding and the bride very specifically asked for all of her house party to be in tan/nude colored dresses. After reading other reviews I saw that this dress runs a bit large so I went with a 0L (long for my height because I had to wear 4 inch heels). The dress was almost too long as I still had to hold it up walking sometimes and there was a lot of fabric below the waistband....BUT I received so many compliments and everyone loved it!! So in the end it was great and very glad it all worked out!

Heavy fabric, but very pretty
I didn't end up wearing this dress, but I easily could have. It has a fun low neckline and the sparkles are perfect. I didn't love the heaviness of the draped fabric and the color wasn't the best.

A bunch of us rented dresses for my best friends wedding and the photos are AMAZING!
This dress was perfect for a wedding I was in. My only complaint was that it it drapes a bit low on the bust and I felt a bit revealing since I was in the wedding party. Overall it was a hit. Super comfortable and easy to wear with your own bra. I could have gone a size down.

Runs small in the bust, large everywhere else.
I ordered a size down like the stylist recommended and it was still too long and too large. Oddly enough though, it was too small in the bust area (not meant for C's or D's).

great fit & unique, classic look
I wore this dress for the Grammys and absolutely loved it! It fit great and was comfortable, and I didn't see anyone wearing the same dress or even one very similar. I did wear spanx since the elastic band cuts right above your stomach, but it could easily be worn without. I didn't use any fashion tape for the top, but some bras may need it to keep from showing with the way it drapes. I am 5'7 and wore 3-4 inch heels and the 2L was perfect. Wore emerald colored drop earrings with it. Loved the dress!

The perfect dress.
Ladies--do yourselves a favor and rent this dress. I wore this for my engagement photos in Central Park and it is stunning. The color is a perfect light blush, and the touch of sparkle all over the dress makes it a winner. My fiance LOVED this dress. The dress drapes nicely in the chest area, and the dress altogether is pretty forgiving if that's a concern. I wore the 2L--I am 5'10" and was wearing 5 inch heels and it was still long enough!

Looking and feeling like a Hollywood Icon
The dress fit great, I got a size 2R and 4R. My only problems were, the dress was short (and I'm 5'5 and wore flats!) it didn't touch the ground. And the gems were falling off and some were missing. Up close the dress didn't look very good in my opinion, but from a distance and in pictures it looked great! I fell in love with the dress online, and got so many compliments at prom on it.

Good backup!
I rented this dress as a backup in case my prom dress didn't fit and it was very nice. Although, the dress is pretty heavy and must be worn with fabric tape because the opening in the front reveals a bit too much even with a regular bra on, Not sure if I would rent it again... the dress color was also a bit too pale. Needless to say, it's a good backup for emergencies.

Pretty dress but...
I've rented from RTR a few times and have always had good experiences until now. Usually the sizing info they give you is right on, this time it wasn't. I'm usually a size 2 so I ordered a size 2 and 4 as a backup. The 2 fit my body well but was very short. Barefoot the dress didn't even touch the ground, which obviously isn't what you want for a gown, so that one was out. I put on the 4 and it was huge. It was a better length but was baggy everywhere, not flattering at all. Looking back I should have ordered the 2L and I probably would have been much happier but at 5'4 I've never had to order a "long" size in my life and after reading the measurements for this dress I should have been fine with the regular size. The dress is very pretty and I would have loved to be able to wear it, but unfortunately neither of the sizes worked. Be careful if you're over 5'2 ordering this dress in a regular size.

This dress made me feel classy and glamorous. I enjoyed my night in it!
I loved this dress right when I saw it on the web site. I was so excited when I got it! Got many compliments on it and love how my whole look came together! I thought it ran big, but I am petite. I wore 4" heels and it was a tad long, but not sloppy at all, nor did it get in the way of dancing the whole night. The top hung too low on me bc I have no boobs, so I added a statement necklace to make the top work. Dress was comfy and forgiving overall.

The Glass Slipper of Dresses!
This dress was absolutely perfect for my occasion and would be for so many others! Not only was it gorgeous on, it was obviously well made and above all, comfortable!! I felt completely relaxed, it was like wearing a sundress. I could see this being dressed glamorously or dressed a little bit down for a formal wedding where you don't want to upstage the bride. I added a little sash to the middle to give it some ooph, and it lends itself well to that or a belt. I received non stop compliments. Rent this dress ladies, you will love it!!!

Pretty cute dress!
I like this dress, but I wouldn't say it was 'Wow'. It's more simple so you definitely need to play it up with jewelry and gorgeous hair. If you are planning on wearing 2" (or higher) heels and you are taller than 5'6, please get the Long! Otherwise, very cute dress.

Wore this dress for my prom. I absolutely loved it!
It was so comfortable and so pretty. I loved the jewels they really added to the dress. Also it was not a typical prom dress, which I loved because then I didn't look like all the other girls. I got so many compliments on it too. It did run a little large, I normally wear a 2 but i wore the 0 (thank god Rent The Runway sends two sizes!). I'm about 5'2" and wore about 4 inch heels and the dress was the perfect length. I was so worried it would be too long but it wasn't! So good choice if you're short like me. It was also nice I could wear a normal bra and didn't have to buy any uncomfortable sticky boobs or whatever.

This was the back-up dress...
The dress was beautiful and fit beautifully, but it had a stain on the front. The dress was a back up and the first choice worked. The dress was ordered for my daughter for her junior prom. She is 5'-6" and about 135 lbs. The size 4 fit perfectly.

You can't help but feel nothing but glamorous in this dress!
I rented this dress to wear for our engagement photos and was nervous about how it would fit before receiving it in the mail. The good news is that it could not have been more perfect. A total knockout, and completely flattering to my figure. Not to mention, I felt super glamourous, even just trying it on! The only down side was that I was unable to wear it for the photos since we had to reschedule them due to weather. I will definitely be rerenting this gown again once our session gets rescheduled...that's how much I loved this dress.

Pretty dress for formal event
This dress is very pretty, and my only real complaint is some of the sequins were falling off. However, this was not noticeable at all. It fits very well, but I recommend very high heels for petite ladies, or else the hemline will be dragging the whole night.

Runs large but short.
Make sure to order the long...unless flats or barefoot is your thing:) Love the color. Great fabric and just enough detail while still being understated.

Lovely gown very easy to wear
Gown runs a bit long so I would suggest at least 2" heels even for taller women. Also, bust line is accommodating even for larger sizes
