Pleated Beauty
I ended up wearing another dress since this was a little large in the chest. The waist fit true to size but I think being short caused the top to blouse more than it was supposed to, and you can't tighten the halter. Also, it did not include the sash/belt as pictured. Maybe it was lost with a prior rental.

Dress was perfect!
I'm 5'9 so the long with 4 inch heels was the perfect length. Definitely get the extra size one smaller than your normal size.

Easy breezy black tie appropriate, comfortable all night long and light weight.
I rented this dress for a spring black tie wedding that was mostly outdoors. The material was light but still felt rich/substantial without feeling hot. I thought it was very true to size, I didn't end up using fashion tape like some of the other reviews and also didn't need a bra as the material in the bust is thick and lined. The belt on the 6R was very worn but mine on the 4R was in good shape and helped create a more cinched waist. I loved this dress and the length was perfect, I wore 3 1/2 inch heels and it didn't drag at all. Thanks RTR... Another great experience.

Beautiful gown!
I ordered a 2 regular and 4 long. I am 5'6 and wore 4 inch heels with the 2 regular dress. The dress fit true to size and was super comfortable. With the dress being backless no bra was worn. The fit of the dress was perfect and I never had any concern of "falling" out.

Absolutely gorgeous! I had never felt so beautiful!! I got a ton of compliments all night!!
I used a lot of fashion tape... Wore "long" with 5inch heels and the skirt hit the floor. I had to make the belt tighter.

Glamorous dress, but runs way too large in the bust
I had rented this for a ball, but after receiving it in the mail, I decided to wear my backup style. If you have small boobs (< C cup), then please size two sizes down. I sized down a size and was still swimming up top in this dress. It can be fixed with fashion tape and still looks super classy, but you need the boobs to fill this dress. Absolutely stunning otherwise!

Easy to adjust and fit to your body with pins.
Great for hard to fit body types. The belt was cheap and didn't fit the dress so I exchanged for a colorful scarf. Super comfortable as well. A little long for me, 5'2" and I stepped on it and was difficult to go up and down stairs with the layers. But worth the risk!

Dress came in perfect condition and on time
This dress was absolutely stunning, got so many compliments. This dress runs big so I went down a size and still could of went smaller. My whole experience with RTR was awesome. Once I put my dress in the mail was looking for my next rental.

Having such a gorgeous dress and excellent customer service
This dress was my backup dress , which was shipped overnight . It was elegant, sexy , and most important I felt comfortable and beautiful in it . The reviews say it runs large , but I believe the fit of this dress is suppose to be somewhat flowy on top. I also received excellent customer service from The Rent the Runway staff . They were helpful, quick , and accurate . I felt I was taking a big risk by renting a dress , but even when my first option did not work for my body type , Rent the Runway made it all work out for me .

Classy and the perfect neutral shade of navy. It was just much too tight in the waist, too long and too large in the bust.

Such a gorgeous dress!
This dress was stunning and so classic. As the other reviews say, it does run large, so I went a size down and it was perfect. If you're short like me, the regular length is perfect with 3-4 inch heels and will just barely touch the floor. Would recommend using fashion tape on the side boob to avoid the fabric from gaping. Five stars!

Loved The dress i went into the nyc store and my stylist Heather was amazing as well !
Fit was perfect, it highlighted all my assists and hid my problem areas like my stomach very well. I wore this for a #wedding and received tons of Compliments ! Felt like a total star! The only thing is that it runs a bit big in the top area and you will need double sided tape to keep in place since its a brawless style, it was a challenge keeping it all in place, but all in all a total princess dress!

The top of the dress is baggy around the breasts makes one look much wider than you really are.
This is a tougher breast fit than you were think. With the waist, if the top doesn't fit just right it's quite baggy and frankly makes one look fatter than they are.

This was a back up dress...
Dress was beautiful, especially in the back. But, it was very sheer, came without the belt, and the side boob was way too much to handle. There was no way it could've been worn.

Fit true to size, I could have worn a zero, but the 2R worked!

I was literally getting compliments all night!
This was so elegant and flowy, super easy to wear while still being formal enough for a wedding. I was able to go braless but didn't feel over exposed because of all of the extra fabric around the chest. The belt was falling apart but my sister was able to see it together and it was good to have because it gives the dress a waist in otherwise really flowy fabric. Overall super beautiful and classic, sexy and feminine and easy to wear! Would absolutely rent again!

Simple but beautiful gown
Was super disappointed when I tried it on as it was a bit big and the belt was missing. This was a replacement to two other dresses that did not fit well. With only two hours left to my event and I couldn't find anything in my closet to wear, I decided to wear it. Thankfully I had a navy belt in my closet and some fashion tape. Received compliments all night. Super long (I had on 4" heels). I would definitely rent again but a 6L for a tighter fit in the breast area.

Not flattering from the back if you're not extremely slim/athletic!
I was so excited about this dress. I love backless styles and was attending a wedding that was just formal enough for this to be appropriate. Unfortunately it just didn't work! I got an 8 short and a 6 regular as other reviews mentioned it ran big. I'm usually between an 8 and a 10 and the 6 actually fit me in this style! Sadly neither the 8 nor the 6 was flattering from the back. The belt was missing from both sizes and the way it is cut created some serious fat rolls on the bottom of the back. Just not a good look! Other than that, the color is great, the fabric is very good quality, and if it didn't give me back rolls I would have loved to have worn it!

love the dress
I loved the dress and my whole rent the runway experience. The dress does run a little big. I got an 8r and 6r and probably could have gone down a size. I'm a 34C bust and the top was so loose on top I had to pin it. The bottom of the dress is flowy and looks so pretty when walking. Overall I was very happy with everything!

I felt so confident and comfortable in this dress!
Rent this dress! I was a little concerned about it showing to much skin, but it was perfect in every way. The open back is sexy, but the front plunge isn't that low (I found that I didn't have to use any fashion tape). The pleats make it so twirly and fun. Regular length and 5" heels were perfect. No tripping.

Someone crossed the ballroom during the party to tell me how beautiful my dress was!
This dress was beautiful and I received so many compliments. When I walked, the fabric made it look like I was floating across the floor. What I didn't like was how big the chest area was, even for a size 2. There was a belt, and I used tape, but it still felt like I was swimming in the top. Also, the 2L was a little long but manageable with 3" heels.
michelleMay 5, 2012
Were you able to slide the belt up and down? I am pregnant and would need to slide the belt up over my bump.. wondering if that's possible?
RTR CustomerMay 5, 2012
Hi Michelle! This should not be a problem. You should be able to get the belt over just fine, since it is removable!
sarahMay 5, 2012
hi! I rented this dress for a wedding on Nov 3- I'm about the same height and weight. Any suggestions on keeping the girls in control or did you go braless? its such a gorgeous dress! Thanks so much, Sarah

Sophisticated
I loved this backless dress but was unable to wear a bra with it so felt a little uncomfortable throughout the night that I might look saggy and unsupported up top. In the end, it was a super elegant look. I threw on my highest platform heel so I wasn't dragging the ground and danced the night away.

Being 100% confident in what I was wearing!
I recently rented this dress for a black tie wedding, and I simply cannot say enough good things about it. The dress is beautifully constructed, extremely flattering, comfortable, and will make you feel like a rockstar! Just be warned that it runs very large. I am a pretty consistent 6 and I was very happy that I rented this dress in a 2. (Having taken one of the showroom appointments, I happily discovered this in advance of my event.)
CameronAugust 9, 2012
hi! how was the length of the dress? i am also 5'5" and want to order a size two but am debating between a 2R and a 2L. How tall were your heels?
LivAugust 9, 2012
I was on the fence too, but as there's nothing worse than a full length dress that's too short, I opted for the L. I was wearing 3" heels, but somewhere in the 4-5" range might have been better.
KatieAugust 9, 2012
I love this dress. But am worried because I am a 34DD. Did you have any problems?
RTR CustomerAugust 9, 2012
Hi Katie! You should not have any issues with the bust in this dress. There is plenty of room in the chest area for a large bust!

A Definite Jaw Dropper
Although the dress ran slightly large and the belt was just a bit too small, I received nothing but compliments. I wore this dress to my senior prom and there was definitely no one else there with anything like it. It's super comfortable and sexy in a classy way. There is a definite need for styling tape and being smaller chested was an advantage. Overall, an amazing dress and I was so happy with it.

The dress was perfect for my husband's formal work event. I got loads of compliments and even told I looked like Princess Kate!
I wore this dress for my husband's formal work party in Las Vegas. It was perfect for the event and I received loads of compliments on how elegant I looked. While the dress has a very classic, stylish look, the low back really gives it that extra bit of sass. I usually wear a size 4, but the size 2 fit perfectly. It was very flattering on my body shape, which is smaller on top with a larger bottom half.

CatherineAugust 21, 2012
Hi Sarah! I went braless and was going to use tape to keep everything in place, but I didn't need it. There is a lot of coverage on top and I found I didn’t really have any problems, but I am small chested. I hope this helps. The dress is gorgeous and I am sure you will love it!

I rented this for a wedding, and LOVED it. So flattering, and perfect for a formal event.
Loved this dress and got tons of compliments. Definitely need to use double stick fashion tape to hold the top down. Conveniently, a sample of fashion tape came with my order. Also, this dress ran large. I suggest ordering a size down as a back-up.

Felt like a goddess!
I received several compliments on the dress for being a unique yet classic style. The dress' length was true to size. and the overall fit was a big large. However, the belt that came with the dress was a big snug so choose the size that is true to your size if you are concerned about fit around the waist.

Worked beautifully for the black tie wedding we attended. Top is very large.
Like the other reviewers say, the top is very loose. It doesn't show anything, but you can definitely get lost in it. Order your second size smaller rather than larger. I wore it with 3 in heels and the hem grazed my toes.

Received compliments, felt chic! Great dress!
Wore this dress to a wedding and loved how it looked! I first tried it on during an appointment with a stylist and fell in love with it. ((The only thing that I would caution is for my DD sisters out there -- make sure you have DD-sized sticky backless bras to hold the girls up!)) The dress came in time, was already pressed with no wrinkles, put it on, enjoyed my night, and just put it in the mailbox the next morning! So simple and hassle-free. They even included fashion tape & no-frizz hair oil that came in handy! Would definitely recommend! Note: The dress is long.. so if you're going to dance a lot (like I did) just remember.. it gets hot under there!! :)

Not for petite sizes
I wish I was a few inches taller for this dress. I had rented this as my first pick for my step sisters wedding but unfortunately I could not wear it for two reasons. 1. the wedding colors turned to out to be navy blue as well and I didnt want to look like a groupie and 2. it was much too long for me (I'm only 5'1"). Also like some reviews said it was too loose in the top portion (this coming from a large C cup small D cup girl. Pros (it I was taller): It's flattering to any bump areas. It flows as you walk It you choose a size down; and are at least 5'3" or 5'4" it will fit great

It was a great dress however, they didn't have any belts so I went without it.
I had to pin the dress at the nape of the neck as it ran a bit loose. Would have preferred to have the belt thus the 3 star rating. Would order from RTR again.

This dress was way too large!
This dress looked great on the model, but the bust and skirt alike were way too large in person. I wear a 34 C, and my bust didn't come close to filling in the top. Also, the bottom was so large I could have gone swimming in it. Great in theory, not in practice.

Beautiful Dress--Received Lots of Compliments
The dress is beautiful, but there is absolutely no support for your top. I bought a strapless bra that sticks to your skin, which is about the only thing you can use because the back runs very low. The dress does run small, so select your size accordingly.
