This dress is gorgeous! I loved the flowing skirt and the bit of sparkle on the top.
The skirt is so lose and flowing, but the top pulls it all in. I normally wear a size 2, but could not zip this one up around my rib cage. I am small bobbed, but the zipper would not let me even get that far. Overnighted the next size up, and it worked perfectly.

i wore this dress to a black-tie wedding and just loved it!
the cap sleeves were a little tight so I went with the 8L instead of my usual 6. I got so many compliments and would suggest it for anyone looking to "WOW".

Getting compliments on the dress all night.
The fit is a little tight on top if you have a larger bust, but other than that it is true to size. It is a little hard to zip up when the zipper going over the hem at the waist line.

It was ok. Not as glamorous as it looks on the model. Not great quality material.
I wear a 6 typically and ordered such according to the size chart. Everything fit except the zipper at the waist, where the fabric is detailed by a ribbon, buckled out and could not zip up. I thought I just needed to go to an 8, but the zipper did the same thing on the 8, even though the dress was not tight on me (in the 6 and the 8). I was eventually able to get it zipped up and it was a little big on top, so it didn't give the boat-neck look like the model has. Oh well, I still got tons of complements but I think my hair and jewelry helped the slouchy neckline effect. I'll do this RTR again, but not this dress.

Beautiful AND comfortable
I rented this dress for a black tie gala for work. It was extremely comfortable, very appropriate for my slightly more conservative profession and I received a ton of compliments! Overall a perfect dress for the event. A few things to note: (1) The lace is definitely more green than it looks on the model. It was still pretty, but it is much more of a contrast than I thought it would be. (2) The dress is pretty long. I am 5'2'' and wore 4 inch heels and the dress still rested slightly on the floor and I had to pick it up a little bit when walking outside. It would have been difficult to dance in the dress. I recommend very high heels if you are under 5'4''.

I DIDNT WANT TO SEND IT BACK!
I loved this dress! I dont normally go for long dresses but I tried this on in the SOHO showroom and fell in love. I think the only way for this dress to work is if the top is very fitted. Thankfully it was on me! I wear a 2 or a 4 normally. The 2 fit perfectly. I also went for the longer size- though I probably should have went with the regular. Even with heels it was a bit too long. I got TONS of compliments on this dress. I really didn't want to send it back!

Very pretty dress but fit is a little tricky depending on your body shape.
The dress itself is very pretty. The bodice is very delicate and the lace is beautiful. I thought the skirt would be much fuller, but it's actually a very light chiffon material. The fit can be hard to pull off depending on your body shape. I am pretty short-waisted so the bodice fell too low on my chest, making the top look awkward, with too much material on top. Also, the dress is made for people with narrow waists - i'm pretty straight up and down, so i had to size up, which made the bodice too large. The dress is pretty but I ended up wearing my back-up dress b/c of the fit of the bodice.

Perfectly classy
This was my first RTR experience and I couldn't be happier. This dress was so beautiful! I normally wear a size 2 but RTR was sold out so I took a chance with a 4R and a 2L and I'm so happy I got both! The 2 was waaaay too tight. Please be aware that the metallic detail in the dress is less gold than shown on the model, it's more of an abalone green/blue. I also deducted one star because if the zipper. There is no way I could have zipped this myself. It gets stuck where the ribbon waistline is. Also, I am 5"6' and wore 3" heels and the regular length was still a bit long on me. That all being said, I'd totally rent this dress again. I felt so classy and beautiful wearing it.

Gorgeous but zipper was tricky!
The dress on, was phenomenal, fit perfect for a girl with a curvy figure, made me look small everywhere I wanted it to! 2 cons: even the Regular length was a bit long (I am about 5'2 and in 4" heels, I still had to hold it up most of the night), the zipper was a nightmare!!! on the hanger, totally fine. On me, took 2 helpers, a short panic attack and every tactic in between to get the zipper past the waist portion. It was not fun. Just grateful I had a miracle coming my way that night !

Same problem with this dress also wonder if a tiny bit of soap rubbed on the teeth might help that ribbon at the waist problem? My daughter is going to the marine corp ball tomorrow night and it will be just her and her Marine date, hope they can get it worried.

Loved this dress! So flowy and beautiful!
I really loved this dress. I am normally an 8 but after reading the reviews on it running small, I was glad I got the size 10R. I am 5'3'' and the length was perfect on this dress. Unfortunately it was a little big in the back at the top so I had to safety pin it back a little. Other than that, I got TONS of compliments and it was really comfortable. Love the flowiness of it, too!

stylist review
this gown is so easy and pretty! Really comfortable- I would say that the most fitted part is at the waist- its really fitted and doesn't have any stretch in that area. I am 5'6 and wore a 4 inch heel and it was still an inch or two too long. You are really going to want to size to your top half in this gown- I'm not really big on top and found it to be really true to size- keep in mind the top does not have any stretch to it. Loved the lace top and the silhouette- so feminine and delicate looking, and super flattering too!

Beautiful dress!
Let me first say this dress is beautiful. I tried on dresses by the same designer at the showroom but had my heart on this dress (it was not there even though I requested it). My stylist recommended that I go with the 6L and 8L because of my height. I have never considered myself an L but I figured I should listen to the staff member as she probably knows better then me. I was so nervous that the dress was going to be too long. I received my dress and it was about 2-3 inches too long, even in 4 inch heels. I was upset, but loved the dress. I would say the waist runs small because i am usually a 6 and had to wear the 8. the zipper is a bit difficult as well, but the dress is beautiful. Would definitely recommend it. If you are 5'5'' get the regular length!!!!

The dress was amazing and I really felt like a celebrity or something
The dress fit great, a little tight in the waist.. so I guess I'm somewhere in between 2 and 4 but it definitely flattered my figure! I got tons of compliments throughout the night and my husband and I actually won an award for 'most glamorous couple' during the event. It was a hollywood red carpet themed party hehe! I really felt beautiful, it was my first time wearing a gown since... my wedding, and the only time before that was my prom HAHA!

Amazing dress! Hides all the areas I wanted hidden. Very classy. I got compliments all night!!
The length was great with 3 inch heels. It's a little loose at the top in the back. The zipper was very difficult. It took 3 of us to zip. But I still love the dress and would recommend it. It does run small. I had to go a size up.

The dress was absolutely gorgeous! The process could not have been easier!
I have a small chest and I found that it was a bit tight in the chest area so it might be smart to order a size bigger if you have anything more than an A cup lol. Other than that, it was absolutely gorgeous, I received a lot of compliments throughout the evening, I wanted to keep it so badly! Very elegant, and beautiful gold detailing in the lace, the gold detailing has hints of green.

Hi! We're pretty similar heights and sizes and I was wondering what heel height you wore with this dress?

Very classy, perfect for formal!
This dress made me look slimmer, was very easy to dance in and I didn't have to worry about constantly readjusting anything. I don't usually wear black but this dress was an exception! My zipper was a little hard to pull up, not because it was tight, but because of something to do with the fabric. I was able to zip it with a friend's help. I don't think you need a big chunky necklace to make this dress work.

Pretty, but different then expected. I was underwhelmed, but everyone loved it; lots of compliments.
I liked the dress, but it was not what I expected based on the photo. It was still nice, but I was hoping it was a little more "fancy". I still received lots of compliments and my boyfriend loved it. Overal a good experience.

Perfect dress for a night at the orchestra celebrating an anniversary!
The dress ran true to size, the 8 fit well. The only issue I had with the dress was the zipper. I was nearly impossible to zip over the waistline because of the material. When I tried the dress on, it took my roommate's architect/engineer boyfriend and his architect roommate to zip me in, and then when it was time to put the dress on for the event, I had to put it on without unzipping it, get it down as much as I could, and then unzip it just above the waistline to pull it over my chest. Kind of a struggle. I will agree with previous comments about the neckline, it really isn't as boatneck-y as it looks on the model. Beautiful dress anyways though!

Being on my husbands arm with him in his dress blues and me being all dolled up!
The dress was beautiful! Im tall and slender and I requested the 0L and its defiantly Long! I was concerned the dress wouldn't be long enough for 3 inch heels and it was actually too long. But I got taller heels and it helped. Im 5'9" and probably would have been better with the regular. Also, as other reviews say, the waist is small. At the event I attended there was dinner and it doesn't allow space for eating too much. ;) Overall, I loved the dress! I will rent again!

The lace on this dress is BEAUTIFUL!
I ended up not wearing this dress because I fell in between the 10 and 12. The lace is absolutely beautiful on this dress, but does have a green sheen to it that cannot be seen in the picture very well. You will definitely need someone to zip you though! The zipper is close to impossible. The length was perfect for me with about a 3 inch heel. I wish that I could have worn it, but thanks to RTR I had a perfect backup dress :)

Love this dress! Pretty, feminine, and light.
I ordered this dress as a back up for a formal charity event. I ended up wearing my first choice, but I really liked this one too and will probably order this one as my first choice for another event. It fits really well and is comfortable. I love the subtle green metallic color on the lace, and the skirt flows beautifully. I would say that the chest is pretty fitted, and not good for a larger busted woman. I have a fairly small bust and wasn't sure if I could even wear a strapless bra with it. The only con I found with the dress is that it is really difficult to zip over the part with the ribbon on the waist - this wasn't a fit issue, the zipper just was stuck on that part and was not easy at all to pull up.

Didn't wear it
This dress is true to size but the zipper catches on the band around the waist making it hard (impossible in my case) to zip up. I would have needed to go a size up but then the rest of the dress would have been a little big. I am relatively larger in the waist though, for my size (32-27-35). The dress is really, really pretty though. I do want to mention that the design on the torso is more metallic blue/green than gold. So very pretty though!

I wore this to a formal company holiday party & it was perfect!
I ordered the 4L, which I was a little worried about. None of the other sizes within my range were available for the date that I needed it. I'm 5'7" & with a pair of 3 or 4 inch heels it touched the ground, I only noticed that it was still a bit too long when I walked quickly, the bottom of the dress almost got caught on the bottom of my heels a few times. I definitely needed help zipping up the dress! The zipper was very hard to pass over the empire waisted area as other reviews have mentioned. I'm not sure I could have done it without help. The dress was extremely comfortable and also felt very glamorous at the same time, a perfect choice for a multitude of occasions. My experience using RTR could not have been easier. I was very pleased with everything. I will happily use the company again for other future parties & events!

Beautiful dress! I received so many compliments and felt like a dutchess the entire night.
The zipper was a bit tough to get past the waist, but it fit perfectly once it was up. I'm 5'2" and wore 4" heels and the length was PERFECT! Gives you the appearance of a tiny waist (which is always a plus!) Would definitely recommend to anyone attending a formal soiree!

Couldn't have been better!
I rented for a Coast Guard 'All Academy' Ball and it was perfect. The event was very formal with highly ranked officers, captains, and lieutenants from the Coast Guard, Air Force, Naval Academy, etc. The night began with formal ceremonies and ended with casual dancing. The dress was comfortable, well fitting, and flattering. WARNING! The sparkles on the lace bodice appear gold in most of the pictures on the model, but are also a green-ish tint. I rented gold earrings to go with the gown, but in hindsight would have done better with black. The zipper was challenging but not impossible (as mentioned by other reviewers) and once on gave me no trouble at all. I highly recommend this dress!

Perfect for a NYE wedding!
I wore this dress to a formal wedding held at a large estate in west Los Angeles on New Year's Eve. I am usually a 6-8, but ordered an 8 and a 10 because my post-baby body isn't quite back down to it's previous shape. I wore the 10 and it fit beautifully. The flowy skirt hid all the extra cushion I'm still carrying and the fitted top and waist hugged all the right places. My only gripe would be that the zipper was very difficult to zip - even with help. I even brought an extra dress to the hotel because I was terrified I wouldn't be able to zip the dress before the wedding. Overall, I felt comfortable and gorgeous all night. I would definitely rent this dress again!

I ordered a 4L and 6L and couldn't wear either. I didn't take any photos
Neither dress fit - I typically wear a small top but wasn't able to close either dress. I have a very muscular upper body so I wouldn't recommend this dress for athletic types. The zipper is also very tricky. I worked with my online stylist though and she was able to give me a credit for a future rental - much appreciated.

Great for a winter black tie wedding!
I'm glad I read reviews, because this dress does run a little small. I decided to get the 4R and 6R and the 4R fit perfectly. I wouldn't have been able to wear the 2. I'm 5'5" and the Regular length was perfect; I paired it with about 3" heels. The dress is thin so it's not too much material, and it's fun to dance in. Loved it!

This was the perfect dress for my friend's black tie wedding.
I am 5'8" and the normal length was way too short, even with flats. The long was perfect with heels. This dress is VERY fitted in the waist (not stretchy at all) so would be a hard style for someone who has a straight figure.

Loved this dress. Very comfortable, fit perfectly
I ordered it in a 4R & 6R & I could have worn either size. The waist band has no give, so you don't want to order a size down. The length was perfect for me. I got many compliments on it.

An amazing night out with 2 of my best friends. We all used RTR and looked amazing :)
The dress fit very true to size; key thing to remember is that the back is a little longer than the front. I ordered the regular and the long - the regular showed the tops of my feet, so I ended up wearing the long dress with 3 1/2 in wedges. I wanted to wear heels, but found that I was stepping on the back of the dress and didn't want to rip a hole. PRO: The dress is beautiful and elegant. The lace has hints of gold and teal giving it just enough detail that it can be worn without a necklace if desired. The back lining comes just high enough that a strapless bra can be worn, or it fits snug enough that you can go with out. CON: The zipper on this dress poses quite a problem. There is a belt line with a much thicker fabric than the rest of the dress; once the zipper hits this point it turns the fabric outward making it impossible to zip. You literally have to have 2 people to do this - have one hold the zipper together above the belt, while you pull down on the bottom of the zipper making it line up straight and zipping up. Its not easy, but it works.

Thank God for the Go-To Girl!!
This dress is beautiful, but it didn't work for me. I ordered my normal size (2) and the next size up. I was able to get the 2 on, but couldn't zip it. No problem, that's what the second size is for, right? Nope. Even with my husband's help, we couldn't get the dress zipped. It was getting stuck around my rib cage, which should be my smallest part. I think the waist is just incredibly small. It's too bad, because I loved the dress otherwise. Unfortunately it wasn't available in the next size up for my event, but I contacted a Go-To Girl who helped me find a dress that is available and is shipping it to me overnight. This is why I rave about Rent the Runway to my friends. The dresses are beautiful, but the customer service is outstanding. Thank you so much to Claire S. for you help!
