Very pretty color!
Unfortunately, this dress was too short for us tall ladies, even in the L version. I didn't end up wearing this dress. The color was beautiful, the back was pretty, but there is no way I could have work even a tiny heel with it. Also, because of the high neckline, I felt like my arms were trapped and I couldn't raise them very much. Too bad!

Color: vibrant. Fit: fantastic. A tasteful and fashion forward choice for a black tie wedding.
I received many compliments on the color, tasteful open back, and fabric. The sheath silhouette was perfect! It was a beautiful canvas for a statement earring or clutch. If you're 5'7 and up planning to wear a heel, I would go with your size in the L version!

New Years allow 8 days not the 4. Dress was air/overnight to me. Daughter's dresses never arrived.
The length would never work if you are 5'7" or taller. The color is beautiful. The style is great. The back is very dramatic. It runs extremely small to zip around the waist. The eye (for the hook and eye) was missing, so the zipper wanted to slide back down. It was my backup dress, so I did not wear it (not that I would have been able to wear it due to zipper and length). Also, I was emailed the day before the dress was to arrive that my ordered dress was not available. It is very stressful not getting what you wanted. My daughter's ordered dresses never arrived for our event. They said they would refund our money, but you have to have a backup plan when Rent the Runway cannot deliver as promised.

This dress fit me like a glove. The color is stunning. I usually can't do capped sleeves because of my lats, but this worked out fine for me.

Stylist Review
This dress is very comfortable and easy to wear. The color is really stunning and easy to wear by all skin tones. The pint on the dress is interesting an understated, which, I think, makes it a unique option for your upcoming event. The overall fit of the dress is true to size. I typically wear a size 10, and I wore a size 8R here - I could have gone up a size. I am also 5'6", and I had one 3.5" heels - I could have used a long length dress. The feel of the dress is wonderful and very easy. This is a great option for an evening to cocktail affair. I think that due to the color and pattern on the dress, it could work well in either environment. The closure of this dress is a back zipper, so if you choose to wear this you will need someone around to zip you into this. The overall shape of the dress is a sheath, so I feel it is good for all shapes outside of pear shapes and those with broad shoulder. In fact, if you have broad shoulder or wider hips and are considering this look, you will certainly need to go up a size for your backup size. For all other shapes, I would consider going down a size for your backup. All in all - this is a fabulous dress. It's easy to wear with minimal fuss, is standard bra friendly, and is great for a multitude of shapes.

This dress is classic yet fashion forward- absolutely loved it!
I wore this dress to a charity gala and it was perfect! The waist is very form fitting but that adds a lot to the silhouette as this dress is more covered-up than most. The low back and is the most "wow" part not pictured here and you need a backless bra. The lace is a turquoise/green and is a simply stunning color. I was so sad to return this dress!

Compliments galore - rent it!
Returning it to RTR was difficult as I absolutely loved this dress. I wore it for my senior prom and received many, many compliments. It was comfortable, classic, and exactly my style. When I went to place the order they didn't have my usual size available so I took a risky move and ordered the size 6. Though it was a little roomy in the waist, it fit perfectly everywhere else and I'm really glad I sized up - it made it much more comfortable to dance in. I'm 5'8" and I paired the dress with 3", nude pumps which left the dress hanging just above the ground - perfect for pictures and moving around. I would absolutely recommend this dress!

Felt fantastic and classy
The 8R fit perfectly. I wore it with flats though because it was the perfect length for my height. I'm a full B cup and was able to do without a bra because of the open back. It was a wedding in Miami and the fabric felt light, didn't feel hot at all the entire day/evening. Only complaint was that the top clasps would come undone sometimes while I was dancing. Had to ask people to re-do it for me. Still, felt incredible in it and would absolutely rent it again.

Was the dress very forgiving? I normally wear spanx under all of my dresses but I'm worried with the open back that it wouldn't be possible!

pretty fabric, a little short
I didn't wear this dress for a couple reasons: I'm 5'6.5" and the 6R was too short unless I wanted to wear flats (note that in the photo, I'm barefoot), and while the fabric is lovely, it's pretty bright and solid, plus, as an hourglass, I would say that it's better suited for straighter and narrower types.

Small, short and stiff.
This dress ran very small, I normally wear a size 4 and even the 6 was snug. Recommend a size up from your regular especially if you're busty. I'm not and it was still tight. Also, the tall is not very long. It was way to short for me even if I had worn flats. Would not recommend if over 5'8". The fabric has zero stretch as well so it's really a dress that needs to be tailored to your body.

Matronly
I'm a curvy size 6, and I sized up as recommended. The dress fit, but the high neckline looked strange. It sort of made me look matronly. I ended up wearing my backup dress instead.

LOVE this dress
Great dress very small in the waist but it made for a pretty shape. I am 5 5 and wore 4 inch heels and the 4L fit perfectly. Also RTR has the most amazing customer service, would absolutely rent this dress again!

This dress was gorgeous!!
This fit just right, but I will say that it could have been a little longer. I'm 5'9 and thought it could have been a inch longer. I wore flat shoes, so it wasn't an issue. Also, it did smell a little around the top, so I had to febreeze it which fixed that. Overall, the dress was great.

I felt Kate Middleton-esque.
I have a weird body with a large rib cage and am top heavy so the top was a bit loose because of the open back but the rest of the dress fit perfectly. The bride even stopped me and said "you look hot!"

I got so many compliments on this dress! i felt amazing in it all night and it was very comfortable
I am usually a size 0 in most dresses, so i rented the smallest size, the 2R. It fit perfectly. I am 5'3 and wore 4" heels and the length was great. i would highly recommend this dress!
EvyAugust 15, 2014
Hi there. I JUST placed an order for rental on this dress. I was wondering if you could tell me if the dress was stretchy? Typically, I am a size 8 in dresses. However, I ordered a size 10 for back-up. Was it also comfortable? I'm all about comfort when it comes to dresses. Also, what kind of bra did you wear for this? I don't want to wear something that will show my bra strap in the back. It'll look tacky :-/ Help me!

Amazing dress, got compliments all night!
RTR saved the day by sending me this dress super last minute after the size of the dress I ordered wasn't available. It was perfect. I'm 5'7'' and with 3-inch heels, the dress was a perfect length. It is very fitted around the waist, but I could still sit, eat and dance comfortably.

color was beautiful + unique at a black tie graduation.
TEENY, TINY fit. i wore the 2R and am usually a true 0. The fabric has no stretch/give whatsoever and the chest/rib/waist/shoulder areas are very narrow - the dress JUST fit me. I wish i had the 2L since I wanted to wear higher heels. The 2R was SLIGHTLY too short in my 3.5 inch heels (i'm 5'6"), but it wasn't terribly noticeable. dress was gorgeous - one of my favorite rentals ever.

Didn't wear it.
The waist on this dress is high. Also, the shoulders are extremely narrow. So, if you've got athletic shoulders or arms this dress may not work for you.

GORGEOUS dress!!!
Runs pretty much true to size. Could have worn either the 6 or the 8, but the tighter fitting looked better. Only issue is the clasp at the neck came undone a lot. My boyfriend got very sick of buttoning it for me.

Amazing color!
This dress was my first RTR rental, I only ordered one size so I was nervous about the length and fit. The length was perfect, just slightly touching the floor with 120mm heels. The waist is very fitted, but I was still able to dance/sit just fine. Overall this dress was incredible, the color is perfect for blondes! My only con is the dress arrived extremely wrinkled!! My boyfriend had to send it out to get steamed prior to the event which added stress.

The helpful staff.
This is a stunning dress that is luxurious and well made. The problem is the waist is tiny and is hard to close on your rib cage. The 2R fit perfectly everywhere but I could not zip the final two inches. I will try the 4R and 6R next time. (I am normally a 2R) The color is intense and memorable. There was also one small tear on the back lace bodice, so be sure to check the dress carefully. Will try again.

Felt like Kate Middleton!
This dress is incredible. Beautiful, rich green/blue color... perfect length (with 3.5 inch heels)... gorgeous lace... amazing shape. I wore with the Oscar earrings that are on the model (can't see them very well in the photo and because of my dark hair, but they were awesome, too!) Classy, timeless dress. Be aware that this dress does run small, especially in the teenie-tiny waist. If I was to rent again, I would likely go with a size up.
BaileyMarch 23, 2014
Did the dress have a sheen?
AndreaMarch 25, 2014
I wouldn't call it a sheen... But there is a silk fabric under the lace which may give it a little bit of that effect.
IsabellaMarch 30, 2014
does this stretch?
IsabellaMarch 30, 2014
im a 12 and I'm wondering if it would fit me without stretch. i shy way from dresses without stretch.
AndreaMarch 31, 2014
Definitely no stretch :(
SheilaSeptember 23, 2014
How did it fit over the hips? I got a booty, so I want to make sure it's flattering below the waist, and perhaps has a little room to sit! :)
ColleenNovember 5, 2014
It looks great on you! how did it fit around the mid section? Was it flattering?
AndreaDecember 30, 2014
Thanks! It was tight around the waist (very European fitting) but not so tight that it was unflattering. I usually wear a 4 and I might have worn the 6 if it was available, but the 4 still worked.
