A dress that is long enough, even with a bump
This dress wasn't my first choice, but I'm glad I ended up with it in the end. I originally ordered two other dresses that were too short on me, so I ordered this one in a size long and it was even a bit long - which I'll take after my experience with the other two dresses! As a reference, I am just shy of 6 months pregnant with twins. 5'4" and normally 130 pounds but pushing 150 now, I have a very good bump growing already. I usually order a size 4, but ordered this in a 6L and it worked out. It wasn't memorable or overly special really - but it worked and did the job for the event. I paired it with some great accessories from Rent the Runway that added some pizazz. The chest area is difficult to work with - I pinned mine once I got it exactly how I wanted it. Past that though, this dress is very roomy and comfortable for a pregnant woman.

So comfortable!
This is the perfect dress for a formal event especially if you're feeling a bit plump to fit in a skinny dress;) very comfortable and long enough to wear pumps with. Love this dress!

Great for my maternity photos!
I didn't want a typical maternity dress for my glamour-style photos, so I looked for something in a flowing material with a very high empire waist. I loved it and felt beautiful (tough to do when you're 30 weeks preggo). That being said, unless you are trying to skim over a very thick waist or very round belly, I do not recommend this. It does not hug the body at all.

Dress arrived on time and fit perfect - even pregnant!
I was so nervous about ordering a dress for the masquerade ball I was attending because I was pregnant and had no idea how much extra room I would need when the time came... But 5 months pregnant with TWINS this dress was flawless. Comfortable, beautiful and hid the bump pretty well. Felt like a Grecian goddess all night :)

Dress was exactly what I was looking for.
Dress was great, fit perfectly, if you are not going to wear heals and are tall, stick with the regular size and not the long size. I decided last minute to not wear heals and I was stepping all over my dress the whole night.

The 6R fit great everyone and I got a ton of compliments on the dress. It was a little a long so I recommend high heels to avoid stepping on it. I would definitely rent it again.

Very comfortable!
Probably not the best choice in a long dress for a shorter person (I'm 5"4') since there's no real dimension to the dress, but if you're going to a formal event and your personal style is a little more casual, this dress is perfect!

perfect comfortable but classic dress
I wore this dress to my prom last year. I ordered both the 4R and 4L because I'm 5'6 and wasn't sure how much heel length it would give me, wearing only 3 inch heels the 4R was perfect but any taller I would have recommended the 4L. I got compliments all night on how "classic" it was! Only thing is it cut a little bit on my cleavage!

Military ball dress
I was a couple months pregnant. This dress was not my usual style, but it did a good job covering up the awkward part of pregnancy when I had a small bump. It was a little long, but the slit made it easier to walk with.

Great, comfortable + flattering rental from RtR for a 7-month pregnant gal
At 7 months pregnant, I was scrambling to find a dress that would work for a black tie event. Thankfully I found this on RtR and saw that it worked for several other pregnant ladies...so I gave it a go. I'm a (pre-preg) size 2/4 and the 4 was snug, but worked. I think the 6 would have been a bit too long. I wore 3.5"-4" heels with this dress and it was near perfect. The bust was a little tight, and the chiffon panels at the bust bunched up a little, but overall the dress was wonderful (and comfortable...a big plus).

Perfect dress for a growing belly
I was about 4.5 months pregnant when I wore this dress as a bridesmaid. I was really worried about my DD boobs being squished but they really weren't. You can even adjust the fabric on the top part of the dress to make them fit your chest which is a huge plus. It was really comfortable to wear although a tiny bit too long for me at 5'3, even with heels, but not really a problem because of the slit the long part kind of worked like a train, so I was still able to walk.

Nice dress, flowy and comfortable.
Didn't end up wearing this dress, it flowed after the chest. The only thing I didn't like was the shoulder strap, wasn't bad, just didn't care for it too much. Wore it 6 months pregnant.

I felt like a greek goddess
I wore this dress 20 weeks pregnant and it was unrestrictive to my bump. I did feel as though the dress was a bit too long though. I'm 5'8" and wore a 2 inch heel and it seemed the dress was dragging on the ground all night even despite ordering it in regular and not long. Aside from that, it was very comfortable.

I wore this dress @ 35 weeks pregnant, and it worked great! The dress runs pretty big, so I ended up wearing my regular pre-pregnant size.

I absolutely LOVED this dress. I love empire-waisted dresses that make me feel like a goddess, and this one was true to that. I had so much fun dancing in it, and felt very comfortable. Got SO many compliments!!

Didn't wear this dress. Neither size fit.
I think this dress runs extremely large. Both sizes I ordered were falling off of me. I wasn't particularly a fan of the over all cut either. Not flattering.

Pretty & super comfortable dress!
I loved how comfortable the dress was- the slit was nice for walking and dancing but wasn't obnoxious in photos. My only problem was that the top kept slipping when I would dance. I would never guess to order a zero but I think it would have been much better to not worry about that. Otherwise it was an amazing dress #seniorformal

Strap is too long!
If you have an athletic body, this is not the dress to rent! I tried on the 4 and I couldn't get it to zip yet the strap was super long. When I tried on the 6, it was so big and the strap was so long that it wouldn't stay up over my chest. The dress is stunning, I loved the slit, I just wish it would've fit!

Wore this for a hospital foundation gala and the dress was absolutely perfect for the event.
I have a very slender frame/small bust and the 4 was way too big. Due to the incredible assistance of a RTR associate in Las Vegas, I was able to get a 0R overnighted to me just in time for the gala. I am 5' 7" and the 0R just touched the floor with 3 inch heels. The important thing to remember with this dress is to keep the top crossed enough across the bust otherwise you will be pulling the dress up constantly. A beautiful and sexy Grecian style dress that will fetch you many compliments! Thanks RTR!

This dress was very comfortable and looked amazing! I got many compliments all night!
I ordered this dress to wear to a black-tie benefit. I asked for the 6 and the 8; I truly expected to wear the 8 but I tried it on and it was huge! The 6 was a little big in the bust but fit perfectly everywhere else. The dress is long- I wore 3 inch heels and the dress dragged on the ground a bit but it looked beautiful! I wore this with gold jewelry and no necklace because I didn't want to make the neck/chest area look too busy. This dress is absolutely wonderful for a evening wedding or formal occasion!

Great dress....comfy for the long night!
Fit is comfy but ight on your breast. I am pregnant so my chest was larger than usual, but it was tight. The ling is very long so I ended up carrying my train most of the night. Great dress!

perfect dress for black tie wedding
Wore this dress for a black tie wedding - was fortunate enough to try some dresses on in showroom and immediately fell in love with this one! I also have a hard time finding dresses that are long enough and this one was perfect with heels! Always a great experience with RTR :)

Grecian Goodness
I liked this one a lot because it's so different than what I normally wear... my only issue is that the skirt is fairly billowy... meaning that it made me look a little bulkier on bottom then the model does above. It was still great and comfy but not necessarily trimming.

a classic black dress
I wore this dress in a 4 at 32 weeks pregnant. It did mash down my boobs a bit, but it fit the bump, which at this point is the main concern! At 5'5" the dress was very long on me, even with 4-inch heels.

Incredibly easy black gown!
This gown has the easiest fit in the world and a super sexy leg slit. The one thing I would say is that if you have a bigger bust you will have a little trouble wearing this comfortably. Was great for me though, loved it paired with colorful earrings!

Returned without wearing!
I ordered this dress because of the 'long' lengths offered. I was surprised that the length was long enough for me (I am 6' 1") but the dress was very unflattering. The neckline/strap has a strange twist detail that I couldn't see in the photo. I returned the dress without wearing it.

Not made for pear shapes
This was disappointing as the dress is classic and well made, but it is definitely not made for true pear shapes. There is zero give in the fabric and despite the photo looking like it is fitted in the bust and then a loose flowing bottom it is actually fitted, especially through the hips (if you have hips or a booty like me). I could barely get it over my hips and it didn't flow but instead pulled and bunched in the area. And then the bust was so big it actually came down and exposed my chest. If the bottom fit I probably could have tacked up the strap to make the top fit but together they just didn't work for this pear. Bummer... They make you select a fit when submitting a review but this doesnt exactly "run small" for me it was both large and small! ;)

Dress is gorgeous and easy to wear!
Great dress! Very comfortable. I'm pretty tall and it was definitely long enough for me to wear heels. Strapless bra worn easily under the dress without worrying about it showing. Easily zipped up over my large chest. Received many compliments! Loved the dress!!
