Great outdoor fall wedding. This was picked as a bridesmaids dress, but looked great.
This was extremely long. I don't wear heels, but I had to wear sky high heels and it was still dragging. It was pretty and elegant. Very comfortable.

Dress worked well for a formal wedding, got several compliments.
Color and fit were great. However, I could only wear 2" heels max wearing the 8R (I am 5'8").

Beautiful dress!
I wanted to look elegant but simple and this dress was perfect. I have a small bust so I had to use garment tape in the front to keep it from opening; I'm surprised that the description of the dress indicated that it's good for small chests because it's really not. With 3 inch heels, the dress was the perfect length. I loved that the dress was very light and comfortable and it flowed beautifully when I walked.

wore the dress for a 20's themed wedding and worked well for art deco style
this dress is very comfortable and fits well. i'm 5'10" and it's difficult to find dresses that are long enough and this one grazed the top of my feet so it was perfect. wore flats with it and had no trouble with stepping on it. as other reviewers have stated, i did need a bit of hollywood tape at the bust to keep it from opening up. the dress is a little see through and for an event outside on a sunny day i would recommend a slip.

Classically elegant!
I loved the color of the dress. The navy was a nice alternative to black, while still being classy and elegant. With three inch heels, the long barely touched the ground. The regular probably would have worked better, but it was not available. I did have to pin the top (which looked kind of bad), but you can definitely wear a normal bra with it. Definitely recommend this!

The dress was perfect and RTR made it so easy.
This dress was perfect. The color is great- it's a pretty dark navy, not a usual color. The zipper was good quality and didn't have any problems. It photographs really well and it very light on the bottom and moves easily. I don't like when dresses get tangled around the feet and it definitely didn't do that. I would rent it again. I wouldn't go with the long size unless you are very tall for your size.

I couldn't fit the dress I ordered!
The skirt and the top were amazing! However, I couldn't zip the dress up. The waistline is at least 2-3 sizes smaller than the listed size, i.e. size 14 dress, size 10 waist :-( Should have listened to the other reviews. Beware!

Great, easy to wear dress!
This dress fit great! It was very comfortable to wear all night through dinner and dancing. I loved it because it wasn't a dress that I was constantly worrying about adjusting. It was very easy to wear. Though it wasn't the most flattering dress, I still felt great in it!

An airy, beautiful and flattering dress that runs too long.
I loved this understated but elegant and flattering dress. The 2L was my backup size, I thought I'd be the 4 but the bust was actually big and a little saggy on me (I'm a 32C). The 2 fit perfectly, though I still taped it to my bra to avoid it sagging a little if I leaned over. I LOVED the fabric, light and airy, the color is very elegant and can be accessorized in many different ways. Loved that it hugged the waist but flowed over my curvy hips, hiding all the right bulges - very flattering. Wore it to a black tie wedding and received a lot of compliments ;) Only downer is I should've listened to the reviews and gotten an R - the L was definitely too long, even in heels (I'm 5.7). Overall a wonderful dress though!

Lots of compliment - Very Elegant color - can be paired up with bold accessories &/or bold makeup
though the top is a bit large, for the most part, it runs true to size. I did use some fashion tape to close the front up a bit, because it was a bit loose, but it wasn't a big deal. I'm 5'2 , and the length was a bit long, but my heels also weren't that high - maybe 3 inches? I added a sparkly belt for a bit more glam. Very comfortable dress - did not feel tight. The upper back of the dress did overflow a little, if that makes sense, but it didn't look bad.

Simple and elegant. I got so many compliments!
This dress fits very true to size. It is very comfortable and light. The best part is that you get to wear a real bra. Be careful about bending over or not standing up straight because the front may flap open. All in all, this dress was great and easy to dance in.

The dress made me feel beautiful and elegant. I got lots of compliments.
The fit was slightly large, I wore a size 4 and I am normally a size 6. It is long, so it requires very high heels and you have to be careful not to step on it while dancing.

Ballroom dancing looked smooth and perfect!
I loved the simplicity of this dress and it made a big statement anyway. I wasn't moving anywhere all night, which was a nice feature. The band around the waist was a little on the tight side but nothing unbearable. The only downside was that there were no short dresses and even in character shoes the dress was too long to be waltzing in. Still, a lovely dress and if you plan on wearing it to an event where you can wear more than two inches of heel, short girls are still fine!

LOVE this dress!
Perfect dress for a formal beach wedding. So comfortable and so flattering! I wore petals but got away without a bra, other reviews mentioned needing spanks or a slit, this was not the case for me. Dress was long, I am 5'2 and wore 3-4 inch heels, no need to get the Long unless you are very tall ;) highly recommend this beautiful dress!

Other reviews are true, it's VERY tight through the waistline zipper. And, it is very long as well. But, otherwise comfortable and super flattering. I had tons of compliments and enjoyed wearing it!!

Classic gown worn for a black tie formal awards dinner. Extremely elegant!
I found this dress at the Rent the Runway store in manhattan. Unfortunately 12L is the only size they had. All the other gowns were either too big/ large or too short on me because I am a size 6 and just under 5'10. I was able to get away with wearing this gown because of its material and high waist. The fact that this was a long version of the gown was a game changer! I was able to wear this gown with heels and I still had ample material for length. This gown is sure to turn heads! It's elegant, fabulous, and classy!

I did not wear this dress because the Long that I ordered was way too long! It was my first time trying out Rent the Runway, and I should have paid more attention to the reviews! :) I prefer things long, but the long was entirely too long to even consider wearing. The top portion of the dress was also a bit too loose for my liking. Pretty dress on the hanger though, just not the best fit for me!

Too much fabric in unwanted places
I chose to wear another dress to my event. As someone who is 34DDD, I was looking for a dress that would fit my chest and still let me wear a bra. However, the fabric collected and then hung under my breasts in such a strange way leaving a ton of fabric to flop with the breeze. It was just so unflattering! The color is MUCH lighter in person--a light grey blue. It was very sheer fabric that did not leave much to the imagination.

Elegant and Comfortable, but Sheer
I wore this dress to a black tie wedding and danced until 4am. It was very comfortable and lightweight. True to reviews the top is very blousy. I had to belt it to get it to fit my chest (and I'm a C). The bottom part of it is incredibly sheer. I had to wear a slip otherwise it would have been completely see through.

I wore this to a black tie gala and the dress was perfect.
The dress was even more beautiful in person. I am normally a 6-8 in dresses and ended up wearing the 8. I could have gotten away with the 6 but ordered a 6L. This dress does run long- I am 5'7 and wore 4 inch heels and it was just the right length.

Beutiful, runs large
I ordered an 8r and a 10r and they were both too big. I am short waisted so the torso was too long and looked too baggy. This is also pretty long in length. I would have had to wear 4inch heels to keep it from dragging. The dress is really pretty but just didnt fit my body type, maybe someone that has a longer torso like the model.

The dress is beautiful and received compliments but overall just wasn't right for my body.
The fabric and color were very pretty! The length was a bit long on me in 3 in. heels but it flowed beautifully when I walked so it wasn't a problem. The top however, was problematic. I think it was due to my smaller chest, shorter torso, and the way the dress was made. To start with the top was big and I had to pin it together because it was just to open for a work gala, which helped some. But, the pleats around the top are not stitched down on the sides so even when the center was pinned the pleating billowed out around me and to the front, making the top look just to big. I read the reviews that mentioned the top being big and decided to go with anyway though, so i did expect this. Probably wouldn't rent again but on the right body this dress would be beautiful.

Boring dress, no wow factor
This dress fit fine and was easy to wear (though a little loose in the bust). But it was boring -- I had hoped the pleats would make it a little more exciting, but they didn't show up well with the dark material. I would not rent it again.

I wore this to my senior formal and got endless complements!
The length was perfect for petite ladies in 4 inch heels. There was some extra space in the back and bust area but it was not very noticeable and still looked amazing. Straps stayed up and it was very comfortable. I didn't even have to wear a strapless bra. The dress itself is a beautiful navy color and flows nicely but accentuates the waist as well. I would definitely recommend!

I wore this to a friends wedding
This is a great dress for a more formal event. The fit and length worked out well for me (I'm on the shorter side, so that's a good thing!). The color is pretty straightforward, so I added one of RTR's necklaces to liven it up, with great results.

My dress arrived on time and I did not have to worry about what I was going to do with it afterwards
I wore my dress to a Military Ball - I absolutely loved how the dress looked on, I felt like a Greek goddess. I only have three cons and that is that it is a bit see-through (which was later noticed when looking at pictures and my leg was visible in a few), the length was a little too long so I had to stay in my heels all night so that I can dance and wouldn't slip on the fabric and the final con is that around the chest area the straps would slip to the side revealing my bra (but nothing a safety pin couldn't fix!). Other than my three cons I loved the dress and received numerous compliments.

Totally unexpected!
I was in the Las Vegas store when my stylist put this in the room. I was really only going to try it on for size, but fell in LOVE with the simplicity of the dress. I added an amazing necklace and felt like a million bucks at my event. Total knockout dress and classy too!

Elegant dress!
The dress was very elegant and forgiving! I felt that it needed a belt to give it a little more shape at the waist and luckily I had a navy sash that did the trick. Also, it hung too long. I am 5 feet 6 1/2 inches and the regular was too long - I was able to cinch it t the waist thanks to the sash and made it work.

Beautiful dress, great color but long!
This is a beautiful dress! It's perfect for a work formal occasion - it's gorgeous but not flashy. The color is such a great shade of navy. It's a bit long - I wore 4" heels and I'm 5'5" and the regular was still dragging and getting stepped on. Also, don't wear a push up bra unless you want some cleavage when sitting down. I made that mistake :) I'll definitely rent this dress again for a work formal!

I rented this dress for a black tie wedding March 2014.
While I rented this dress is size 8 & 10 I didn't end up wearing either. The 8 fit well in all places with the exception of the thin band around the waist - it was too tight. I sized up to the 10 and unfortunately everything was too large with the exception of the waist band - still too small (and oddly seemed to fit exactly the same way as the size 8). The dress is beautiful and if you happen to have a small/normal sized frame it will probably work beautifully. In my case, with wider, postpartum waist/rib cage, it just didn't work.

Beautiful evening in a fun dress.
This was a replacement dress sent by RTR when my original dress didn't make it back in time from the previous renter. RTR let me know, and though i really wish the original dress had come, this was a suitable alternative. The dress is lovely and comfortable. it's been worn quite a bit though and the pleats in the skirt no longer look like pleats- they look like they have been steamed or ironed out. But the dress is light and beautiful, nice departure from a black dress. the top is blousy, and can gap at the front, a little bit of dress tape can fix that easily. I wore it with 3.5" heels and it just barely skimmed the floor- perfect!

I had the 8L as back up since long dresses sometimes fall bit short. The 8R was perfect with my 3 inch heels.

Great for a formal affair, whether you are a primary figure or simply an attendee.
This dress is SO comfortable and, I think, very flattering. This photo shows that the V neck is a bit loose, but this is the only angle that it showed up as being open. Nothing can compare to how this dress flows when one walks in it. Beware though, I work just about four inch pumps and the regular length was long. The waist is very true to size, but the rest of the dress is very forgiving. Bonus: no strapless bra required!
