Classy dress, looked great
Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I was really pleased with this dress. I wore it for one of my proms this year, and I couldn't have been happier. The dress fit really well and it looked great. The zipper was a bit sticky in the middle, but it was nothing I couldn't handle. It does run a bit long, so even with my 4in heels I had to pick it up a bit to walk...but again this wasn't a huge deal. The fabric was great and looked to be of really high quality. The has a little bit more of a green look than gold as it appears in the picture, but it's super pretty. I had a really great time wearing this dress, was insanely comfortable all night, and felt fantastic.

The only downside was the zipper which a lot of people noted in their reviews. It took a lot of effort to get it zipped but after that it was fine. The petite was too short for me to wear heels with, but it was fine with me because I don't like wearing them!

It's hard to get the zipper over the waist band but it's do-able with effort. I love the color and the lace. I'm 5'7 and I wore flats. I should've gotten the long.

The fit was great for my small chest (34A) however, I had to keep my shoulders back at all times to keep the fabric smooth under my chest! Probably just a personal problem though! Haha

Very classy and glamorous
Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I really loved this dress, and got so many compliments on it throughout the night (as I was posing for the picture in the review, one girl even yelled "I love your dress!" from her car window and she drove by!). The only downsides were that is was VERY difficult to zip because there was something funny about the zipper that made it catch. My boyfriend had to spend 10 minutes getting it to zip! There was no way I would have been able to get it zipped if I had been getting ready on my own. Also, I thought it ran a little small in the arms, so I had a lot of trouble dancing throughout the night because I couldn't really lift my arms above my head. I was even able to get away with not wearing a bra with this dress.

I loved wearing this dress! The lace on top is greenish blue and the green and gold Alexis Bittar earrings picked up those colors beautifully. The waistband hits at the smallest part of the waist, cinching and elongating at the same time. The length was perfect w/ 4 inch heels. The skirt flows away from the body nicely. As mentioned in other reviews, the zipper was a little tough as the waistband has no give. Nothing that should dissuade you from renting though! I received many compliments and felt great!

Perfect for a sophisticated St. Patrick's Day gala!
Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
First thing, getting this dress was an odyssey. UPS had an order delay and if it had not been for Jessica at RTR it would have never gotten to me. She's a star. She deserves a raise :) But when the dress came - it was gorgeous - the zipper was a nightmare. It was slightly ripped from the hem of the dress and wouldn't zip up. Since it had to be delivered to my dad's office - it was close to my event - I had to do the unthinkable and ask my dad for help zipping it. After tears and a hysterically bellowed "I'M JUST NOT GOING TO GO!" I regained my composure and was able to zip most of it and fashion tape the rest. Luckily I had a sash to cover the open bit. Tons of unnecessary drama getting and wearing it, but, I have to say, worth it. The faint hint of green and gold in the black lace at the top was perfect for my event. The skirt was comfortable and airy - perfect for Irish dancing. I would usually wear a 2R but I went with a 2L because a previous reviewer said the skirt just touched the floor and she was an inch shorter than me. I'm 5'4 and wore 3" heels and the 2L was just a tad long, but the 2R would have been too short for sure. Worth the rent if they take this dress and re-do all the zippers. If there was one reason I wouldn't rent this dress again it would be that. Customer service was TOP NOTCH, though. Seriously, RTR, Jessica for President.

Got compliments on this dress all night!
Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was perfect for a winter black tie wedding. It is really flattering--really accentuates the waist and has a nice, smooth A-line. The fabric feels great. I am 5'7" and was wearing ~3" heels, so I went with the 4L and it was the perfect length. I normally wear either a 4 or 6, so I had planned to order the 6L as my second size, but it wasn't available so I risked it anyway and just got the 4. It fit me like a glove, but I was just barely able to zip it up. I think I was borderline 4/6 for this dress and probably could have worn the 6, but I think the zipper is also just pretty tough to zip up, particularly at the waist where there is a double layer of ribbon. Overall, I was SO happy with this dress. I got compliments on it all night long. Can't go wrong! Just know that if you are usually between a 4 and 6, the 4 might be pretty snug, so good to get both.

The dress was very pretty and unique.
Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: Small

My only issue with the dress was the zipper. It kept getting stuck right at the seam where the lace top meets the skirt. It was very frustrating trying to get to go up. I ordered 2 sizes and both dresses had same issue. My husband couldn't even zip it up for me. I ended up figuring out how to get it to zip after 20 minutes.

I wore this dress to a military dinner at West Point, and I got so many compliments!
Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Overall, the dress fit perfectly! I'm about 5'5" and 123 lbs, and I got the 4R. The length and size were great. I'm a 34C, and the top part fit but it was a little tight. If I took a big breath in, it was uncomfortable. Like the other reviews, the dress was difficult to zip up because of the material (not because the dress was too small), so I definitely needed some help. Although the top part with the lace looks gold in the picture online, it's definitely more green. I highly recommend this dress! It was gorgeous yet modest and sophisticated. I absolutely loved it!

The only con is that the Zipper is a bit funky, so even though the dress was lose, it was difficult to put on. But it was comfortable, flowed well and was easy to wear.

Simple yet gorgeous and classy
Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I love this dress. I wore it to a formal ball at my college and I felt very classy wearing it among the crowds of prom dresses. I wore size 0R and it is very true to size. I wore about 4 inch heels and the length was perfect. I have read in some other reviews and have to agree that the sparkles on the bodice appear gold in the pictures but are actually more green. It worked out well because my earrings were gold and shimmery aqua. The zipper can be a bit difficult but I turned the dress around and zipped it up to the difficult part while it was in front and then turned it back around and zipped it up the rest of the way. Once I figured that out, I didn't have any trouble with the zipper. The dress is pretty simple but had a beautiful, classy feel to it. I would highly recommend this dress.

This dress feels very romantic. It made me feel confident the whole night.
Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This dress runs small for sure. I read it in the reviews but still thought "my size will probably work" and I went up a size. I am just short of 5'8 and wore 3 inch heels and the 8L was perfect, but I still had someone step on it at one point in the night. I am also extra busty right now from breastfeeding so I did not wear a bra and found the dress to support me well. Another thing I read over and over again THE ZIPPER! IT is really tough. I had to have help and then finally turned the dress around on my waist and had another pair of hands hold it closed while we zipped it. Then turned it back around and zipped the rest of the way. The zipper was the only reason this dress does not get five stars. It could potentially keep you from wearing the dress at all.

I loved this dress. It was really comfortable and elegant. I got a lot of compliments.
Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The 2L fit me perfectly. I usually bounce between a 2 and 4 because I am tall, but pretty small chested, so the cut makes a big difference on me. This dress seems to cater to a bigger chested individual, so I wore a strapless bra and then put sticky gel inserts too! And then it was perfect. Also, in the photo the lace looks woven with gold. When you get the dress, it'll look more green than gold, but it's still pretty. I wore a pair of Angelina Jolie knockoff earrings, the emerald green teardrop ones. They looked really pretty. I'd wear this dress again.

A simply beautiful, elegant dress.
Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is stunning! I wore it to a wedding and received so many compliments all night. I am 5'7" and around 140 lbs and wore an 8L. The length was perfect with 3 inch heels. The only reason why I would have maybe gone up a size was the bust area. I'm a 34D so it was a little snug, but I ended up wearing a very thin strapless backless bra and it worked out just fine. If you're worried about the bust area, I'd go up a size just to be safe. I had such an amazing experience with Rent the Runway and I can't wait to rent another amazing dress very soon! SO worth it and such an easy, fun process!

It's such a pretty dress! I got so many compliments on it. The length was perfect - I have a walking boot on because I broke my foot, so I was wearing flats - if i hadn't had the boot on it would have been too long. The only thing I was disappointed in was the zipper. It took so many different people/trys to finally get it to zip! Plus it was just a little big in the shoulder and stomach - but I wouldn't have wanted it to be skin tight

An amazing night out with 2 of my best friends. We all used RTR and looked amazing :)
Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
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.

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!

I initially ordered the 6R but it was too small so I called customer service and they overnighted me the 8R. I was so impressed with the speed with which the second dress arrived to me! It came the next morning and fit perfectly; not too long. The only negative thing I would say about this dress is the zipper is hard to close; it took a little bit of time to zip it up. Also, be sure to wear a strapless bra as normal bra straps will show. This dress was beautiful and I got a lot of compliments on it! The lace on top has a green shimmer to it and was very beautiful. Loved my entire RTR experience!

Perfect for a New Year's Eve black tie wedding!
Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wished I would have had a 10 as back up... but the 8 fit fine, got a little tight after dinner, but because I'm tall the waist ribbon wasn't really at my waist. The dress still looked great and it was even long enough with flats (couldn't believe it). As other reviewers stated ... the zipper is tricky! The dress fit well, but the zipper just didn't want to go up passed the ribbon. Make sure you have help and a dab of soap. I was worried about the arm holes being large enough, but I didn't have trouble at all. The under layer of the skirt was thicker than I thought it would be which was nice for the cold Midwest weather, but the dress was light enough to be comfortable all night! I did have a little chaffing discomfort the next day under my arms. This is my first rental and I will rent again! Free samples and a cute little NYE crown came with my rental. Nice touch! Return couldn't have been any easier either. I would say for next time, I will rent two days ahead instead of one, that way if my options don't work I will still have time to get overnight-ed something else. The dresses came to late in the evening for that to be an option.

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!

I wore this to a formal company holiday party & it was perfect!
Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
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!

Great RTR Experience
Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I typically wear a S or XS and this 0 fit really well. I am 5'2 and it was a bit long, but with heals it worked out fine. The dress is very vintage and glamorous on. I loved it!

Gorgeous dress!
Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress to a Gatsby themed party and it was such a fun and beautiful dress to wear! The photos online really do not do the top of the dress any justice. The shimmering colors and the lace detail is so feminine but its see-through enough to give the dress a sexy edge. The top was a little tight so I did not wear a bra. The length was perfect - I am only 5'3 and the bottom just skimmed the floor with my 3 inch shoes on - I didn't feel like I was tripping all over the dress as I walked. My only compliant is the zipper - it was really difficult to get it over the section of the dress where the fabric changed - my husband had to really work at it for a good 15 minutes before it zipped. I usually wear a 4, but this was a last minute party so all I could find was a 2. The 2 was a little tight, but wearable - however I probably would have felt more comfortable in the 4. I would totally wear this dress again!

Being on my husbands arm with him in his dress blues and me being all dolled up!
Size worn: 0L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
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!

Perfect dress for a night at the orchestra celebrating an anniversary!
Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
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!

Very classy, perfect for formal!
Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
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.

The dress was absolutely gorgeous! The process could not have been easier!
Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
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.
