Pretty, easy to move around with. I received many compliments, and felt pretty despite baby bump.
i had a baby recently so actually was a perfect fit and covered my left-over baby bump. It was a bit to tight on my bust, but that was inevitable, considering that I'm still breastfeeding.

Wore to a black tie awards show.
My husband, who never likes anything I choose, loved this dress on me. It was sexy and flowy and comfortable which is a rare combination. It was an hours long event and I was happy in this dress the whole time. Love it.

What a great dress. Comfortable, classy with a touch of sexy.
fit so well in the top with a strapless bra and was perfectly fitted. The rise in the front made it easy to walk in the dress. I received many compliments on this dress that evening and it was easy to pair with a pair of strappy heels.

It was snug on "the girls". Size up over a 34D
I wish I could have worn it! This dress is so pretty. I am 5'3" and just had a baby so I am over my normal size and am weighing in at about 165. Most of this is in my chest. I could not get this on with a bra and had a hard time zipping the very top because of my chest and when I did the size of my "girls" put weight on the halter, which pulled on my neck. I think if I had gone up a size it would have been loose at the waist but I would have been more comfortable. Size up if you are over a 34DD

Elegant gown!
I rented this dress for a formal event. This was my very first experience using RTR, and I could not be more pleased! I received lots of compliments on this dress. The fabric was a bit heavy, and the dress does run long in the back, but with heels, it barely skimmed the floor. Loved this dress!

Beautiful shape and elegant fabric
I loved this dress. The fabric is a black lace (hard to tell from the pics) and can feel a bit heavy. But it is gorgeous. Loved the hi-low hem on the dress. The top is like a corset and can feel a bit binding after a long night. Also, the bust was a little tight for me. This dress does not have pockets but looks like it could.

Looked and felt great
The 0 size was too tight. I wore the 2R and it was perfect. Very snug, kept everything in. No need for a bra. I am only 5'1 so I worried about the length. The back of the dress touched the ground but only a little. Material was a little heavy so I would not recommend for the hot summer months. Very classy look for a black tie affair. I loved it.

Elegant modern black tie gown
Form fitting and flattering dress. The fabric is a thick beautiful jacquard fabric that is great at sucking you in on top and around the middle, but does make for a quite voluminous skirt, be warned. I was able to wear a regular strapless bra with this dress, needed to fill in slightly large cups in the halter. I have a larger rib cage for my size so felt it ran small there but overall was fairly true to size for a formal gown. In bright sunlight this looked more navy than black, which didn't bother me, but may be a deal breaker for some. I felt fresh and fashionable in this dress without having to wear a flirty cutout number. It was the perfect middle ground for a 30-something in the midst of young socialites and older glamorous ladies. Definitely recommend!

The dress was true to size. I ended up wearing the 4 because it is fitted in the top but not the bottom. Incredibly flattering and a really fun dress!

beautifully made dress - really stands out from all the other black dresses worn due to the fabric
I wore this at a summer wedding on a hot day and although the material is a little heavier it was perfect, didn't show any heat and I didn't feel hot. Classic, beautiful and very easy to accessorize to create different looks. Received so many compliments; wish I could buy it!

Compliments all night!!! Super comfortable
I'm 5'4" ish and appx 150 lbs, rented the size 8 and it fit like a glove! It was absolutely perfect! A word of caution though from my own experience and reading others reviews is bra size. I'm a 34C from VS and I don't think this dress would have fit a larger size up top. Def. base your size choice from your top because below your true waist doesn't matter because of the gowns style. It is a heavy fabric, but super comfortable to wear. No weird adjusting all night! All I had to do all night was stand back and get compliments. I wore this to a black tie gala and it was spot on. Fancy, gorgeous, classy. I even got my picture taken for a local magazine! Not over dressed, not under dressed- perfect. It is a bit long in the back though, and the high low isn't as dramatic in the front as it seems on the model.

The dress fit great. I received tons of compliments and felt like a diva!
It was a bit snug in the bust. I NEVER go braless but was actually able to with this dress. It showed cleavage but not in an unclasp or uncomfortable way. While it was tight through the bust the waist was perfect. The heavier material made the dress even better. The length was a tad bit long on me but with heels it was fine. I would definitely wear it again!

Fit weird
The halter neckline was too long for me and it is not adjustable. While it fit my waist and made it look tiny it also totally smushed my boobs. Also the fabric is VERY heavy. I really wanted this one to work but this dress was not meant for me...

IT was just what I was expecting. Looks as good as the pics.
Classic, comfy, the material was a little heavy, but it did not weigh down the dress. It made it look sumptuous. It was everything I hoped. I poured over dozens of dresses before choosing this. RNR makes it so easy. I even let the concierge at the hotel send it back, so I was able to fly back from the wedding a little less weighed down. IT was so easy. I also like that all the packaging is reusable. No waste. The garment bag it comes in is good quality and zips everything into place beautifully. A PLUS operation!

Beautiful Dress!
This dress was great! In photos it looks a little stiff but it's very soft and flowy. I'm 5'6 140 lbs and a 32DD. The 6R fit well, a little big in the chest which was surprising but still fit well. I wore 3 inch heels and it was the perfect length. I got so many compliments on the dress and it was so elegant and comfortable to wear! Would highly recommend!

an easy dress to make special with fun shoes and other accessories
I wore this dress to a wedding and it was the perfect blend of being conservative enough for a formal affair, yet fun with sparkly Jimmy Choos and fun big drop earrings.

Beautiful but heavy
I am petite, 110 pounds and 5'3", so the dress did not hug my body. Instead it hung on my neck and was very heavy. It was a nice full skirt, but if you are pretty skinny and usually wear a 0 or smaller, it will be uncomfortable. Otherwise, a very nice looking dress.

Perfect NYE gown
I am 5'3", 107 pounds, 32A, athletic/straight build. This dress was the perfect length when paired with modest heels (more than kitten, much less than crazy high)! I did need to wear a strapless bra to fill out the chest, and pull it down in the back to hide it. The V neck and open back were very flattering! The asymmetrical hem line was really nice, & showed off my heels & pedicure! It is a heavier black lace & I stayed warm (am always cold)! Great formal dress for the winter time. I received so many compliments & am very happy with my choice!

Beautiful, yet uncomfortable.
Unfortunately, I didn't take any pictures wearing the dress, as I chose not to wear it for my event. I tried on both the 2R and 4R. I could not get the 2R to zip around my ribcage, but the 4R fit perfectly. The fabric of this dress is very heavy, and with the amount of fabric used for the full skirt, made this a very heavy dress. I felt as if all of the weight was only being supported by the thin strip of fabric across the back of my neck, and it made it uncomfortable to wear, even when only trying on for a few minutes in my home. Also, the skirt is not as full as shown in the model pictures. I believe an extra tulle petticoat would be needed to give the skirt the amount of body shown in the pictures to make this dress a true "WOW."

Perfect Black Tie Dress
Thankfully, I have learned to trust the advice of RTR stylists. At 5'2", 105 lbs., this dress was a perfect choice for this formal occasion. It wasn't offered in petite sizing; however, the 0 Regular did not require any length adjustment wearing 3" heels, which the hi/lo hemline showed off beautifully. The fabric was noteworthy in its weight and warmth - what you would expect in a quality garment - and a wrap was added only because the venue was chilly. Truly a dress that I would love in my wardrobe and would not hesitate to order again and recommend to others. I felt beautiful and received compliments the entire evening.

Gorgeous LBD with immaculate detail!
I normally wear a 4R when renting/buying dresses and ended up, after reading many reviews, renting 2 sizes up, this dress definitely runs small (I wore the 8R). The waist area was very tight. I didn't have to wear a bra also, the top part of the dress fit me so well (I'm at 34A). With 3 inch heels the dress just skimmed the ground and my fiancé didn't step on it once (I'm 5'6). I loved the dress! It was great quality material but not too heavy, the details of the dress were beautiful although hard to see in the photos. And overall just a beautiful and easy dress to wear! Always a great experience renting from RTR!!

Favorite RTR yet!
I rent from RTR a lot and this dress is arguably my favorite of all time. If I could have bought it, I would have. The fabric has a lace-pattern to it that you can't see in the pics, which give it some nice texture. The fabric is heavy and holds the structure really well. I'm usually a 4R and this was true to size. With a heel, the length was perfect. I adored this dress and my husband loved it. If you are looking for a classic, elegant option for a black tie event, this is it.

This is a very fun and elegant dress. I received tons of compliments - highly recommend!
The dress definitely fits true to size. I do not have a very large chest, so the neckline plunged a bit for me which worked well. It is fitted which was nice as it kept everything in place and will give you curves. There is boning in the bodice. My only slight "complaint" is that the front length of the dress is longer than what is pictured. I used some of the fabric tape to make the hem a little higher. It still worked beautifully. I am 5'6" and had 3" heels on. It was slightly long in the back, but again I did not have a problem with it, and was dancing the entire night. Overall a very elegant dress - it was nice to feel pretty and dressed up!

I got so many compliments on how well the dress fit.
I wore really tall heels and it was still a little long in the back so I was stepping on it all night. But it was totally worth it.

Third times a charm!
First, I have to commend RTR on their excellent customer service reps, this was the third dress that I rented ( the first two just weren't quite right for me) and each time my replacement dresses were deliverd on time with no issues. Also when the first two dresses were not what I needed I was met with nothing but friendliness and prompt troubleshooting in order to get the dress of my choice shipped to me overnight. Thank you RTR! Now, on to the dress, I rented this dress for a friends black tie 30th birthday party. It was perfect for the occasion! I didn't want to outshine the birthday girl but I still wanted to be stunning. I was sent the 10L and 12L, while both are true to size I wore the 12L because of the halter neckline and my full 36H bust. I didn't wear my bustier because it created too much of a lift, so if you have a fuller bust I would say you can go braless. The fabric on the dress is heavy which was perfect for the weather in January in Chicago (burrrr). My favorite thing about this dress was the high/low hemline, I think it adds a little something extra to the gown and it's a plus for a taller girl if you are worried about a dress not being long enough. I am nothing but happy about my whole experience, I can't wait to rent again from RTR!

I attended a black tie formal Indian wedding in south FL. I'm talking groom on a horse fancy!
The fit was to die for if your pear shaped. I was stopped by at least 8 people commenting on how beautiful the dress was. During the barat procession a whole table of women sipping martins exclaimed "oh wow look at her!" Remind yourself that I was walking with 400 people decked out to the nines is gorgeous Indian sari dresses. this is a special dress for sure, show stopper!

Belle of the Ball
This dress was amazing and was really the best option for someone my height who was looking for a long dress. The halter top was a little low but overall I received compliments all night and was very happy with my rent the runway experience!
StephanieJuly 6, 2015
What size heels did you wear, and did you feel the 12 was too long at all?
JacquelineJuly 6, 2015
They heels were about 4 inches. The back did drag a bit on the floor but I think it would depend on how much dancing you do if it would be annoying or not. I know by the end the tail was a bit dirty but it didn’t stop me from having fun!
