beautiful dress, likely dry cleaned too many times
I felt beautiful in this dress. It looks better in person than in the photos. It was too short though. I ended up wearing flats because I wanted it to touch the floor. Also, it seemed as if the dress had been dry cleaned too many times and shrunk the fabric, thus pulling up the lining to be seen at the bottom of the dress. I was hoping it was just the dress I received so I ordered a replacement (as usual, RTR has great customer service). But the replacement had the same problem, just not as significantly. And the dress required serious ironing on delivery.

Make a Wish Foundation Gala
It fit nicely. I am breastfeeding and therefore wearing a size 34H bra. The 8 fit my chest although it was snug. It also fit by belly area, which still looks like I am 4 months pregnant. I was pleased with the dress although I did wear Spanx. I was about 140 lbs at 5'5 when I wore this dress.

Great color and beautiful construction; received lots of compliments
This dress is gorgeous. It was sent to me as a back-up and I was happy to have it. However, please note that the long option really is only for women up to 5'10". I am just shy of 6', so with a pair of heels, the dress did not skim the floor as it does in the photo. That said, it was still beautiful and I am happy I got to wear it.

Pretty dress, fits like a dream
I received this dress as a last minute replacement. It was lovely but I actually ended up wearing a different dress. In hindsight, I think I actually should have worn this one as it's a very pretty light demure color and more on trend for 2016. It fits beautifully and really slims the body. The only thing is that it ran a bit short for me and since I didn't have my arsenal of shoes, I couldn't justify wearing it as it lifted too far up from the ground to look nice. Also, it was pretty wrinkled at the bottom and I didn't have time to iron the dress out. Hopefully I'll have another opportunity to wear it.

Beautiful color and feel!
I love this dress but ended up not wearing it in favor of the other dress I had ordered (it made me feel like a mermaid, what can I say?) This dress is gorgeous though! I love the color and the skirt is so fun, but it was a bit tight around my chest/rib cage. Everywhere else fit fine, though. Definitely shows off an hourglass figure well! I wish I could have kept it so I could wear it to another event because I really felt beautiful in it, but I'll just have to order it again when I want to feel like a princess and not a mermaid.

Great friends
Fit really well! Got a lot of compliments. I'm 5'3" and wore about 3" heels and the length was perfect. One thing I had a problem with was that it was really difficult to get rid of the wrinkles. Otherwise great dress!

The dress fit very snug. The bust area was perfect because I have a bigger bust and it fit very well. Although, I could not wear a bra

LOVE! Gorgeous Blush Option for a Bride!
This dress fit true to size and is much heavier than anticipated (in a good way). Fabric is sturdy and feels very substantial. I opted for this dress for my second-marriage as it was a little less formal and I loved the blush color!

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 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.

It was a beautiful dress, but for someone that is 5'9" it didn't touch the ground which was a bummer
The dress didn't touch the ground, but with the right shoes showing it wasn't a big deal.

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.

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

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!

Dress was true to size and hugged in the right areas! Not too snug to be uncomfortable but highlights your curves nicely. Went with the 4L because I wore 4 inch heels and the length ended up being perfect.

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.

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!!

Beautiful bell shape and ballet pink color...
The silhouette on this dress is lovely - it is fitted in the bodice and flares beautifully in a bell shape. It will really showcase someone with a long and lean figure, although a bit of a push up bra can help fill out the shape. Make sure you get the right length. My feeling was that the long ran a bit long, but perfect with a pair of higher heels. It's a simple dress but the cut and color make an entrance. It is as pink as it looks in the photo. Definitely a classic. Pair it wait some dazzling jewels and it is unforgettable.

Perfect for a formal wedding!
I chose this dress as a replacement for my original rental that was ruined. RTR customer service was awesome to work with and this dress was a gorgeous alternative. This dress hugs your body and flairs out at the bottom in an elegant way - it's not as big and bulbous as the model's picture looks! It's lined and well-made and does a very good job at hiding any little bumps in the wrong places. I could not wear a bra with this dress as it is very tight in the chest. There is no give at all, so for bustier girls I would size up. Fortunately I could get the zipper up and everything stayed where it was all night! The dress is a beautiful blush pink. I paired it with black and gold accessories, and gold shoes. The dress is a little short, even in the long size, so I don't recommend wearing sky-high heels. I wore kitten heels and it was about half an inch off the floor. I would definitely rent this again! It was very fun to dance in!

The dress was beautiful, I loved the color and the fabric. I felt beautiful.
I am 5'2" and wore 4 inch heels and the dress only touched the floor. I would recommend wearing a bra with the dress because I felt like the dress was big in the bust area. Wear big jewelry. I also want to thank the other women who posted about this dress because they helped me pick the perfect dress for my senior prom.

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!

Order this dress for a photo shoot and it was awesome. It photographed beautifully.
Somewhat tight at the breast area which is unusual for me being only a B cup. Was nice and fitted at the torso and I wish the but area was little tighter.

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!

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.

I got so many looks - wow! you look great! This dress is a showstopper.
I normally wear a size 10 and the 10L fit well (the 12R was too big). Length was perfect in kitten heals (I'm 5'10"). The color is stunning because it's so demure. A big statement necklace is a must to draw the eye up to the face. The dress was tight around the ribcage. Bust area had just the right room for a push-up bra. I'm straight with no waist line or hips and there was room in the hip area - just right for sitting. The dress has a lot of fabric, so it takes a little effort to gather it and sit. I got lots of compliments as one of the few women who didn't go with the default black dress at a black tie event. Stunning gown!

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!

perfect for a color pop
This was a tiny bit tight in the bust but other wise a perfect fit. It was comfortable and manageable for a long evening. I wore a pair of 2.5 inch shoes and the dress barely dragged on the floor. So many people complimented about the color and how beautiful the dress was. I loved it.

Very forgettable dress
This dress is so unimpressive in person but takes a good picture. The pink is drab, to make things worse the one I received was dirty. It had a stain and felt oily from so many people wearing it, also it was extremely wrinkled. As my first RTR experience I am iffy if I will try again but I need a dress for my event... The fit is true to size, however I am 5'6" and it hit the floor like a pant leg, so get a long if you want to wear heels.

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.

Dress is gorgeous. But if you're short, order the petite...
I didn't order the petite and the dress just pooled at my feet. I was so bummed because the bodice fit so beautifully! I'm 5'2".
