The most gorgeous dress I have ever worn!

Everything about this dress is flawless! It runs slightly large but it still worked out for me. Beautiful color and material.

Beautiful dress!

This was a replacement dress suggested by my second stylist, when my first two and the backup automatically sent didn't work out (it's okay, some girl was wearing the one I really wanted). The pictures don't really do it justice. The fit was amazing on my curvier top and bottom, and I loved the trumpet skirt. It is kind of plain, but classic, and easily accessorized. The material was heavy and high quality. It was a great length with 3 inch heels on my 5'4 frame, perfect for dancing!

Too tight in the middle rib cage and baggy everywhere else. And my rib cage is small!

Hips were baggy but the waist part was small. For weird for my body for sure

Perfect gown for Junior League Ball in Nashville

The original dresses selected kept not working out. I contacted a stylist at RTR who quickly was able to send options and ultimately helped me select this gown. This gorgeous dress has very soft material but is somewhat heavy on the bottom-which I truly believe is a plus because the gown stays in place. Being 5'9 I am always concerned with length of gowns and this was perfect! In this gown I was able to wear a regular bra with the lines of the gown. Perfect for a very formal occasion. Can't wait to wear again!!

After 3 dresses this one took the cake!

Rent the runway customer service is second to none I had to go through three dresses before I found the perfect one for a palm beach wedding at the Everglades. The original dress I ordered was not a great ft, then I ordered two dresses that were too warm for the occasion and didn't fit right so it was back to the drawing board. By this time it was October 9 and my event was October 10 rent the runway was able to deliver my dress to the hotel by 12 o'clock so I was ready for the event. The dress was perfect in every way and I felt like a princess even though the bride's made of honor had the exact same dress the way we accessorized and our body type made it look totally different. Another great experience with rent the runway

comfy, shows off the curves, no fancy undergarments needed!

the 6 was way too loose, and the 4 was on the verge of being too tight. no bra needed, ultra supportive and sucks you in.

I was thrown the bouquet by the bride since my wedding was the following weekend.

The dress fit me almost perfectly- it was a touch shorter than I'd hoped but the 2R wasn't longer so I went with what fit my body better. It is fairly heavy so I'd caution on wearing to anything outdoor in warm weather.

Dress was beautiful and very elegant

I normally wear a 4 and I ended up wearing the 2l. It was still a bit loose around the waist and bust. I got complimented on it all night regardless and it was a beautiful dress

Wish it had more stretch

This is an absolutely stunning gown! I rented the 4R (6R backup) for a black tie gala, but unfortunately had to have RTR overnight another dress, as this one didn't work out for me. The material doesn't have any stretch so it has to fit your measurements perfectly. This dress fit me great in the bust and hips, but was loose and baggy in the mid-section. Unfortunately due to the lack of stretch in the fabric, there was no way I could make the dress hug my waist the way it should have. Everyone has commented that this dress gives you a great hourglass shape, so I was surprised that it didn't highlight an already hourglass-ish shaped figure. I guess I could have tried the 2, but they didn't have it available. Still a gorgeous dress though! Hated it didn't work for me :( I'm 5'9" and the 4R just barely grazed the ground with flats. My stats for reference: 5'9" 133 lbs, Pants: 6, Dresses: 4, Chest: 34", Ribs (just under boobs): 28 1/2", Waist: 25.5", Hips: 37"

I felt like a princess!

I rented this dress for an awards ceremony and fell in love with the color and silhouette. When I first tried it on, I wasn't sure it was going to work. If you are a small chested lady like me, you are going to need a majorly padded bra. I don't know if the dress had been stretched out or if that was the cut, but it was gappy up top. It fit perfectly in the hips (though you will want to rock some spanx!). I'm glad I stuck it out because I got so many compliments and felt amazing in it, and my overall RTR experience was fabulous.

Absolutely lovely dress! Compliments galore!

This dress was my second choice after my first pick wasn't available. It was beautiful! Very minimalist chic. I wore it to an Oscars party because it reminded of Gwyneth Paltrow in 1999. The con is I range from a 6-8, so I rented the 8R. The length was perfect, but it was way too big in the bust even with a push up bra (I'm a 34C), I don't know if that's from wear or just the size, but I had to use double stick tape to pull in the sides. I ordered over the weekend so there wasn't any time to order a smaller size. The extra room in the hips was no problem, I recommend maybe sizing down if you're between sizes. Other than the size issue, it was a great dress!

My date

The dress is very light, pastel pink. I'm 113 lb, 5'1" and athletic. I wear between 0-3. The length for this was perfect with 5 inch heels. I had a backup size 2 and the bust was significantly bigger and a longer length that would have been impossible for me to wear. The size zero ran big in the bust (I'm a B cup, mom as well lol) and in the midsection area. It wasn't too heavy. I agree with the picture; the dress needs statement jewelry. It's a gorgeous dress but I think it might've been too plain for my taste. Overall, runs big, long, and need a good bust size for it to work.

Short and drab:(

The color of the dress is beautiful but unfortunately it was not the right fit for me at all. I tried in the six and the dress was fitted (tight) at the bust but hung off my waist and hips. I also ordered it before all of the reviews came in about how short it actually was and yes, it was a few inches off the floor while I was barefoot. The fabric is also extremely heavy. Thankfully I ordered another dress from RTR just in case and it worked beautifully! Will definitely use RTR again!

Beautiful Color

This dress is a beautiful color, but that was about it. It ran very big on me. I was swimming in it. I wished it worked on me, but I am hard size. The material is very heavy which just made me look weighed down.

Simple elegance and stunning!

So, this dress is basically the perfect formal gown and has the same silhouette as Jennifer Lawrence's famous pink Dior gown that she wore to the Oscars. The only reason I gave it a 4 and not a 5 is because the neckline actually cuts a bit lower than what it looks like on the model. For busty girls (DD+), this is probably not the dress for you. Even with a smaller bust the neckline still shows ample cleavage, which is why I am not attaching a photo of the dress. However, the fit and feel of this dress was perfect. PERFECT. While it did hug my curves, the dress made me look at least a dress size skinnier than what I actually am and the drop-waist flare out at the bottom is regal. This was my back-up dress, but from the moment I tried it on, I didn't want to take it off. So many people told me that I looked like Cinderella! Even with the low neckline, this is probably one of the classiest dresses on RTR because of its simple, stunning elegance. The fabric is a bit heavy, but the dress is perfectly made. Besides the low neckline, the only drawback to this dress is that it may not be the dress for taller women (6' and above). I am only 5' and with 4 inch heels on the hem was only a little long. Had I worn 5 inch heels, the hem would likely have just graced the floor.

Thanks for your comment! I'm thinking of renting this dress for a wedding, but would really like to see it on a 'normal' girl, do you have a photo you can share? Thanks! :)
JillianFebruary 12, 2014
I have only a few photos, and they are in poor lighting so nothing in it looks as it did in real life. I can tell you that I have curves and some to spare and it was like pouring my body into the perfect hourglass shape. The only reason why I wouldn't recommend this dress to a curvy gal is if she had my bust size, but even then it was stunning.

I wrote a review of the necklace I wore with this dress, and there is a photo of that with the very top part of the dress on the page for the Lee Angle "Tie Up in Crystal" necklace.

This was a BEAUTIFUL dress. However, it fits a little differently. I am 5'4'', 115, 34A; it was VERY small in the chest/straps, but big in the waist/hips (and I have bigger hips!).

I had to buy a dress

This dress looks nothing like the photos... the fabric is thick and feels like a table cloth. The color is more of a pepto pink than the pink in the photos... and if you are over 5"5 get it in the LONGEST length possible... it is incredibly short

Amazing dress!! Fits great!

Dress looked amazing! A little short though. At 5'6" even with a low heel it was about 2 inches off the ground. If you have a large chest, go a size up for sure. The 4 fit perfectly except for in the chest, so I went with the 6. Color looks beautiful and I got a ton of compliments!! The fit around the waist really accentuates your figure. I wore this for a black tie wedding in key west. It was a little hot but you would probably be hot in anything in key west. Overall, I loved it! And the fabric is amazing! Looks great in pictures!

Gorgeous dress....but runs short!

This dress was so gorgeous. I had to go with the 4 because the chest was tight and the length was really short . I am 5'6" and ended up wearing clear flats because I couldn't afford any height with the length of the dress. Fabric is extremely thick and has no "give" at all. The color is so pretty. My husband said I looked like a princess. :-)

Color is darker than you think but very pretty. Skirt is a bit heavy.

I am usually a 10 or 12 but event the 12 was too tight and I could not get it zipped up. The regular also runs very short and hit just below my ankles in 2 inch heels.

Beautiful but too short.

I rented this for a formal event and I am 5'7" so I was between the regular and the long.. I should have gone with the long because the regular hit at my ankles and took this dress from stunning to something a Dugger would wear in the gym. Whomp Whomp. I am happy I have the unlimited so I can send it back and pick a longer dress!

The people!

I really felt the back was very tight while other areas were too large on the 8R. I am very much always a 6R but this dress in a 6 was way too short and the back was super tight. I am muscular but have never had a problem, make sure to get a size up in this one!

This beautiful pale pink ball gown made our spring NYC engagement session feel magical and special.

When my husband and I first got engaged, I began dreaming of an engagement shoot in New York City--the city where we met and fell in love. I knew I wanted to wear a gown and this dress was perfect for the gorgeous spring day. I can't imagine a better dress. At only 5'1'', it can be difficult for me to wear long dresses unaltered, but the length on this gown actually fit nicely--with my 4" heels! The overall shape was slimming and beautiful. My only complaint is that it runs small in the bust/rib cage. Going up a size helped (glad I ordered the back-up in a larger size), but definitely watch out for that if you are bustier on top!

I loved the color of this dress, however with my hourglass body type, I should have known better than to rent it! It emphasized my hips and booty. Beautiful dress with incredible quality, but wasnt for me or my body!!

Wish I Could Have Worn This Dress!

I got this dress in the 4 and ordered the 6 as my back up and definitely needed the 8 or maybe even the 10! Unfortunately they did not have the 8 or 10 available to ship overnight. I absolutely loved this and it would've been so perfect for the black tie charity event I was attending. I'm 5'9" and 135 pounds and usually wear a 4 or 6 in dresses. This dress fabric is not elastic at all and it was the actual size of my hips that kept the 6 from working. I was so sad I couldn't get the size I needed but I will definitely be renting this dress for another event soon in the right size. I was also worried about the length with being tall and wearing heels, but it would've been long enough without dragging the ground.

Eye catcher

I wore this to a wedding and enjoyed every moment of it! I am 5'10 and about 160 lbs and wore heels and it was a great length; once dancing begun, I had to lift it up off the floor when walking, but it wasn't a big deal. It is heavier than expected, but so beautiful.

Runs small. Gonna have to fix the clasp.

Runs small around the chest area. The clasp in the back of my dress was a little busted. Probably from being worn a lot. I can figure out a way to fix that.

This dress fits an hourglass figure so well and makes your butt look so good! And it's great because you can wear any bra with it. I loved this dress so much I didn't want to send it back.

This dress was amazing! It fit perfectly! Loved the full bottom & color. Perfect princess moment!

I wore this to my law school's Barrister's Ball. I felt so glamorous and beautiful. I wanted to look like a Disney Princess and I really did. I'm about 5'4", 120 lbs, and a 32D. I wore a 4R and the fit was perfect. I loved the thick, heavy material and the fullness of the bottom of the dress best! I definitely did not want to return this dress. :)

PortiaMarch 25, 2014
Thank you Alexandra! My heels were about 5 inches. I didn't have any shoes that matched that were lower or I would've worn them to make the dress a little longer. It was a bit short with the higher heel.

A truly flattering dress!

This dress really hugs your curves. I thought it was gorgeous on. However if you have a larger chest this probably will not work for you. I am a 34A and it fit snugly. My only issue with this dress was the length. At 5'7 I could only wear flats and it barely skimmed the floor. Wish there were a long option

Average

I rented this dress for a black tie wedding and after chatting with RTR I was advised to rent a size 4 and 6. I was hesitant giving them my exact measurements (32B, 24 Waist, 35 Hip) since my usual size is a 0/2. I was advised that the 4/6 was the way to go and figured they knew best. It definitely runs true to size and was way too big for me. Even if it were to have fit I am not sure I would have chosen it. It was pretty average in person. I expected the material to be a little different than it was.

Classy & Elegant !

I rented this dress for my boyfriend's senior prom. I wanted something classy and that's just what I got. I ordered the dress in a size 0 and 2. Both fit about the same but I went with the 2 because of length. I am five foot four and it touched the floor without shoes, and was just a little lifted off the floor with heels on. If you are over five foot five I would not recommend this dress to you. The material is heavy but it is so comfortable and you don't even notice the weight. The dress is form fitting and very flattering. The bust area is a little snug so if your bust size is big I wouldn't recommend this dress to you. My bust size is small and the dress was very flattering to them. I loved this dress so much. I recommend it to smaller and shorter girls because of the fit and length.

The dress was stunning in person! It was a clingy, but somehow flattering at the same time.

The color was a little bit different in person, the pink is definitely more vibrant, and it's not at all shiny (as it sort of appears in some of the photos). The fabric is heavy, but in a good way. It does get a little warm on occasion. I wore this dress to a black tie gala, and it was perfect - unique, but tasteful. The RTR Experience simply cannot be matched - so wonderful!
