Elegant and unique dress. I got a million compliments all night long!
I got so many compliments on this dress. Fit was comfortable. I usually wear a size 0 but the 0 was too small. The size 2 fit perfectly. The dress is elegant and comfortable. I'm glad it was my dress choice for my event.

Award Banquet
This dress is gorgeous. It was sent to me as a backup with my order. The dress was too formal for the event I attended, but if I have a more formal event in the future, I will absolutely consider this as an option. I have a full bust and tummy. The seaming in the torso made my body look sick. Marilyn Monroe sick. The length is great and I could have worn 3-3.5 inch heels with it.

Award Gala
Other than the length being too long, the fit was great on this dress. I am 5'4.75" tall. If you have a larger bust it might be a bit tight up top. It is a classic. sophisticated cut. I received many compliments on it.

It was a little tight in my chest but i'm a chesty gal. Other than that and the slightly long length, it was a great dress!

RENT ME RENT ME RENT ME!
Okay my ladies, let me just tell you the customer service is off the racks awesome. Seriously, my girls over there, holla. This dress, since it is mermaid style, can be a little tight around the knees so it's not the best dancing dress. But A+ for being strapless bc this has a bodice in it so it stays nicely. It really shows off the booty but it's really underwear sensitive. The fabric is light and flows beautifully at the ends. I'm 5'6 so with around 3 1/2 inch heels it doesn't drag but still looks like a nice flow. I put a belt with it bc it is a simple, but elegant dress but it adds a nice sparkly touch to it. It's a really classy dress and it's girly and sweet-RENT IT!!

Great dress for a great price!
Fit great. There is a weird indentation on the front it shows I can't really describe it but other than that I loved it. Material is moderate as far as weight goes. Not super heavy at all. Color more pink than the picture but very pretty. Gorgeous show stopper !

Loved this dress. Got so many compliments.
I got the 4R and it was slightly short with my heels. However, I am 5'9" so that is my own fault. It fit perfectly otherwise! Loved this dress would definitely recommend it!

I felt beautiful in the dress and it was so fun!
Dress was great! A tad big in bust but totally workable with a normal strapless bra. (I am small D but not quite small enough to be a C. ) As far as length, I wore flats and the dress dragged a tid bit but I wouldn't want to wear heels.

It fit like a glove!
This dress was awesome. It fit my body completely, with the exception of the chest area being a little loose and the dress being a little too long. I'm 5'6 wearing 4 inch heels, and I ordered a long, but if I were to go back I would have ordered the regular. Overall a very positive experience, shows off your curves and the fabric is very nice.

Understated elegance
I wore this for my wedding and it was perfect. I didn't want to go with a traditional white dress and this dress had the perfect pale blush pink. It is really elegant and beautiful which makes it easy to accentuate your figure and beauty. The length was perfect for a 3 inch heel. It did drag on the floor a bit but that's good because I didn't want my shoes to show all the time.

Beautiful dress
If you are short waisted or muscular, this dress is not for you! I am 5'2 and 112 lbs, 32 C/D and usually wear a size 0 or 2. I had to size up to a size 4 because the 2 was too tight and even then it was extremely tight/semi-unflattering in the waist. The length was perfect with a pair of 4 inch heels though. Beautiful dress but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone not a tiny size 0 or who has any sort of muscle on their frame.

Beautiful color and shape!!
I rented this gown for a military 40s themed ball and I received so many compliments! It was snug on my hips and thighs, definitely made for long slim figures. The length was about 1/2 an inch too long with 3 inch heels. They did not have a size 2, which is what I would normally wear, but the 2 would have been way too long. The fabric is heavy enough to keep its shape, but will move with you. I would suggest wearing a slip/spanx/something under because you can see the outline of underwear through it. Beautiful color, very pleased!!

The dress was gorgeous. It was my first time using Rent The Runway so I nervous it wouldn't fit.
Dress fit true to size. The only negative was that the straps you use to hang it up kept showing. I always cut those off my dresses. The length was great and I loved the color.

Gorgeous, well made dress that hugs your curves and looks gorgeous!
I was initially afraid it would be a boring dress, and I'd blend in with the walls, but this was not the case at all. Everyone complimented the dress and how unique and elegant it was. Cons: can be difficult to dance in but I didn't find this to be a huge issue; it can be uncomfortable and tight (again not a huge issue for me). Overall, I loved the dress and would recommend for anyone who wants to look elegant.

Beautiful alternative to wedding dress
I wore this dress to my civil ceremony after I was emailed that the dress I originally requested (the ever so popular Reem Acra: florence gown) was damaged. They sent me a few options after I told them that this was for my civil ceremony and this was the one I picked. I have a pretty muscular back/ large bust so I had to go up a size and even then I had difficulty zipping it up. Still happy with the way it looked. I added a skirt under to give it more bridal look. Rent the runway customer service is superb.

Timeless look, much complimented
I received this as a back up, Saturday delivery 4 hours before our event after my first choice in dress did not fit. All they had available for me on such short notice was the 10R (normally I would have opted for the 8 but thank god I didnt!) This sucker fit me like a glove- a scary glove that thankfully I got to zip no problem but I surely felt like I had to walk around sucking in all evening. I never thought of myself as having a large bust/back width until I overflowed out of this on top. However, aside from my own insecurities the dress photographed beautifully and I received compliments all evening. (Ps. I wore flat shoes and had I worn heels I would have had a problem.)

I'm glad that Rent the Runway lets you order another size of your first choice doesn't fit.
Overall, I love the dress! I got so many compliments on the way it hugged my body, and how the color of the dress looked on my skin tone. If your going to a formal wedding this is the perfect dress.

Interior zipper scratched my side badly. Made me look like I was in a bear fight! As I'm very tall, the dress barely hit the floor- but it worked with flats.

Compliments all night about this dress!
I am 5'9, 135 lbs, 32 D (I hope that helps with others about the dress adding my sizes) The dress fit perfect all over. Very flattering! I got a long, but even with the long I couldn't wear heels with this dress. I should add that I do have longer legs (34.5 inches) so maybe for other 5'9 girls they may not have this problem. Not sure. I should also add, I don't like it when the heels show with this type of dress (unless you are walking of course, I understand that) but even standing still, my shoes we showing (all 3 pair different heights I brought) I had to wear dressy flip flops which ended up being fine. No one could tell because it hit the ground perfect when I was standing still . The "long" in this would be best for someone size 8 and is 5'6 wearing heels or someone 5'9 who doesn't want to wear heels. Hope this helps others with sizing! :)

Gorgeous color, pretty fit
I rented this dress for a formal gala I attended, and the color could not have been more perfect. I found the dress runs a little small - I rented a 4R and a 6R and ended up wearing the 6, though I am almost always a 4. The length was perfect with the 4 inch heels I wore. My only complaint about this dress (and why I am not giving it all 5 stars) is that it has wire piping in chest, and on both of my dresses, the piping was sticking out on one side. I was afraid it was going to rip through the fabric! My boyfriend said it was hardly noticeable, but it definitely stood out to me.

Rented it as a bridesmaid dress for my friend's wedding. Ordered 6 L & 8 L, wore the 8.
Beautiful dress - do recommend ordering a size up. Loved the dress but it appears that a lot of people do because the quality of the dress is starting to diminish. The color is fading somewhat, the boning of the dress was sticking out on the 8L and the 6L had zero boning. Overall it was a pretty dress but it might be time to retire or replace it. Also, even after steaming the neckline drooped down the entire night which was a bummer since the neckline is what makes it unique in my mind.

Loved this dress, wish it was dry cleaned correctly
I really did love this dress, it's cut so nicely and very flattering for a slender and curvy person. It was a tiny bit long for me so I just wore taller shoes. This may be my favorite rtr rental so far. However, the top portion kept trying to curl. I even tried steaming it and ironing it. I'm sure when this dress was brand new it was flawless. It's unfortunate that rtr doesn't take better care of the dresses.

Favorite rental so far!! Didn't want to return it!
I wore this dress for a Commencement Ball and it was perfect! It was flattering and sexy but elegant and classy. I got tons of compliments! I ordered the dress in 0L and 2L because I was afraid with heels it would be too short and I'm glad I did. I'm 5'7" and with my 3 inch heels I wanted to make sure the dress was long enough. The only complaint I have is that it is pretty snug in the chest/stomach area. While it was nice because it wasn't falling down it made it difficult to sit down/move around at times. Other than that I have zero complaints and would rent it again!!

I wore this dress to the Veiled Prophet Ball.
The dress came on time and was gorgeous! I received a lot of compliments. I am only 5'5" and I had to wear short heels because it was not very long so if you want it to reach the floor and still be able to wear heels, I would try the long version. My only problem with the dress was that it was super uncomfortable due to the wires that were sticking out and jabbing me all night.

Absolutely loved this dress and felt like a million bucks on NYE. I have a smaller waist and chest (32 A/B) and still had trouble keeping a size zero pulled up when dancing. Also, I ordered a size 0R, but a 0L came in, so do keep in mind this can happen. Would definitely recommend this dress but for an event less physically active than NYE/dance party/etc.

dress looked ok, but was not in good condition
fit great, however dress was not in good condition at all. Boning was almost poking through the fabric along the front of the dress in one spot, and in 2 spots the boning rubbed my skin raw. very disappointed in the condition of the dress.

Absolute dream dress!
I loved this dress so much. Got countless compliments including from strangers. The color is a perfect blush pink, and the bottom of the dress is so elegant and moves beautifully. Wore the 0R although it was snug, and definitely not forgiving in the mid section at all. While the fabric, structure and piping of the dress helps to slim, it's definitely a tight dress (maybe a Spanx use case but I did not use any) I could have done the 2R just as well but liked the tightness of the 0R. Worked better for me without a bra -- the bra made it look bulkier on top. Highly recommend this for a formal event! My one ask to RTR would be to mind the bottom of the dress - mine came a bit dirty which was a bummer.

The dress's fit is very pretty and perfect for formal occasions that do not involve to much dancing.
I usually wear a 4 (the 6 fit better), but if you have any type of butt, make sure you order the size up as your backup size. Beautiful dress and pretty comfortable, just not at all dance friendly.

Beautiful in person but does not photograph well
This dress is a beautiful blush pink in person but sadly doesn't photograph that well. I rented the long because it was all that was left and I could not walk in it at all. The dress also came with a pen mark on the chest area but I had no choice but to wear it, wasn't that noticeable. I would have been much happier with a smaller size, this needs to be tight fitting if you are short like me. The mermaid bottom is gorgeous and the material was a beautiful matte finish. I wish this has a sweetheart neckline because it kind of swallows you up on top. Over all it was an okay rental but I wish I would have worn a different dress. Compared to the two other dresses I had rented, this one zipped up extremely easily...probably because it is a newer rental and hadn't been worn that much. Like others have mentioned the lining can get bunched up from sitting then standing or holding it up to walk. I paired it with the sparkly silver bangles and diamond drop earrings also from RTR and they matched beautifully.
