Compliments Galore
This dress was so comfortable, even in 90 degree heat. It fit well, I'm 5'8 and 135, wore 3-4 inch heels and the 4L fit very well. I did have to wear an extra padded bra to give me some more shape, so smaller chested girls keep that in mine. Loved the dress!

Beautiful... but I wouldn't wear it again.
Pros: high-end goddess dress! Beautiful color. Stand out amongst other gala gowns. Cons: NOT for the busty girl. It was heavy (you will sweat). Cape drags the floor so be mindful of the dirt you will pick up through the night. It's not easy to carry as you walk either. Spanx needed. Don't recommend for those like me that are small/average frame with a large bust.

Stand out for looking classy
Love this gown and would rent again if not for the length - very long with cape slightly longer; cape dragged on the floor and got dirty with 5" heels. But wow, what a timeless beauty. If you want to stand out in a crowd for appearing sophisticated and etherial, this dress is for you.

Regal and rosy
I rented this dress to attend a friend's Indian wedding. I saw on a previous post that someone else had used the dress for a similar event. I wasn't sure what to expect because the dress is very simple but the lines are very elegant. I new it was a hit when I walked in while the bride and all the girls were taking pictures truly thinking I'd sneak to the side and watch. As soon as I walked in the bride exclaimed "Ladies another goddess has arrived" and then the ooos and aahhs came. I was truly flattered and for to be the only person wearing western wear I felt like I still fit right in to this very formal event. The only size that was available was the 6L when I rented but thank goodness it fit. It was a little snug around my chest and hips but I managed to make it work. I wish I had the 8L just so I could have moved a little easier on the dance floor, but then again...how could this outfit have been more perfect!

This dress stood out, made me look and feel like a Greek goddess.
I wore this to a formal wedding around Christmas time. I received so many compliments on this dress. It is a very pale blush color, so it does like a little off white in pictures but in person not as much. I felt and looked like a Greek goddess. This dress definitely shows off your arm muscles. It is a little tight in the hip area, so if you actually have hips or want to sit/dance and not worry about the dress ripping then go a size up. The length is not too long with heels (I'm only 5'1") and it was not dragging the floor, however the train/sleeve dragged a little on the ground but nothing to really worry about. No accidentally tripping over it or anything. I recommend this for anyone that wants to stand out or just feel like a goddess or princess.

I looked phenomenal! Everyone thought I was a celebrity and wouldn't stop talking about the dress !
The fit was a little large. I am usually a four but had to use the two so it wouldn't look bunchy. But the fabric has a fabulous weight that just adds a natural grace to the entire look.

Incredible dress
You will not be disappointed if you choose this drsss. It is simple but very elegant and classy. I originally ordered this dress but a size larger but they didn't have it so they overnights me another size and it fit perfectly! This dress is amazing. My normal dress size is an 8 but I wore a 6 in this dress

Classic Clean Lines & Pretty Color
This dress was a dream. I wore it for an event at the Biltmore and felt so happy with it. I am 5'7" and with heels it was a little to short on me also form fitting at the hips (but I do have larger hips and backside) overall so happy with it and as always the great service of Rent the Runway!

Unique and elegant
The dress is beautiful, but if you have a chest it could be a little tight! I am normally a 10 in all dress, but this dress felt extra tight (or I may just be feeling a little extra fat this week)! If you are self-conscious about your mid-section this is not the dress, even with spanx it will show every detail... I have a tiny mole to the right of my belly button and you could see it through the dress! I tried to get the replacement dress in a 12, but sadly they were sold out so I have another dress that is a similar style on it's way! I may try to rent this again because it is such an elegant dress.

Couldn't wear it because it was SO long (even w/5in heels; I'm 5'2", size 0). But beautiful dress!
I'm just a smidge under 5'2" and 105 lbs. Build is petite and athletic. It was really, really long. I tried on 5 inch wedges, and it was still at least 2-3 inches too long. Because the cape is attached at the side, there was no option of wearing a belt and trying to blouse it out, or tacking up the dress because the cape is still expose and dragging. Really bummed I couldn't wear it! The dress was overall a little big: I'm small busted, and it wasn't so big in the bust/shoulder area I wouldn't have worn it, but was a little too big. It fit me well through the waist area. Not too tight on me, actually had a little breathing room and wasn't hugging me, but I could see that it might not be very forgiving if sized to be a tighter fit.

The fit, the cape, the color...STUNNING!! It captured the brides vision perfectly. #Bridesmaid
The fit was a little tight around the bust but after a 1hour or 2 in the dress, it loosen up. I rented a 10L and the cape was almost longer than the gown it self. Make sure to wear 4-5 inch heels. The Cape makes the dress!!

if you have any hip at all
i am a petite hour glass figure. I have small chest but large hips and butt. everything else on me is very small. When the dress was pulled down and sit how it was supposed to, it was riding up so that i would have a lot of material sitting in my stomach area...it was also way too big in that area as well. I would recommend getting a different dress if you're in my shoes... I ended up returning without wearing :(

Gorgeous dress!!
It was such a beautiful dress and I got a lot of compliments throughout the night! The color, quality and fit were all great. The only thing was that I wore 0R and it was still very long (I'm 5'4" and wore 3 inch heels). I could've worn a taller heels but didn't want my feet to suffer. Other than that, I'd love to wear this amazing dress again!!

Looked like a Roman empress
Absolutely beautiful dress! I received tons of compliments that evening on my outfit. I usually wear size 4-6, depending on the dress, and the size 4 fit me perfectly. The only options available for the length were regular and long, and I ordered the regular size. It worked fine with very high heels, but the cape in the back was very long. The only issue I had with this dress was that the slip had shrunk as a result of washing, making the slit in the back bunch up at the top. Fortunately the cape covered the back and the slit was not noticeable.

Beautiful dress, didn't fit quite right
I absolutely love this style of dress. However, it fell short when I put it on. The part of the dress that rests on one shoulder wanted to slide right off of me. The dress is not suppose to be worn form fitting, I found that it was tight around the hip area and loose in the bust. Ideal for girls with a little more on top, I believe that would secure the shoulder strap/cape from falling. Still sad, I couldn't wear it. *sigh*

I loved the color and fit. It arrived slightly wrinkled, so make sure you have a steamer or leave time to have it steamed professionally.

Very regal gown
Sleek and elegant. The color is a lovely subtle blush pink. I loved this gown but did not end up wearing it. The top fit well but the bottom was too fitted around my hips. I am 5'5" and run between a size 4-6. The 6R would have fit better. I picked a different outfit in the end...

I'm 5'9'' and the length (OL) was perfect with three inch heels. Wore this for a 1920's formal affair. Not sure how 20's it is but did add the head piece! It was so elegant and very glamorous.

Dirty Dress Made it Work for Debutante Ball
This dress was rented for a debutant ball I hosted over the weekend. I went on the designer's website to select the appropriate size based on my measurements. I selected 8L and 10L as back up. Unfortunately the 8L was not sent as it was no longer available and they sent an alternate style. The alternate style was not to my liking. The 10L was a bit loose in the bust area. While steaming the wrinkles out of the dress a large blue stain was found on the inside and outside of the cape. It appeared as though there was an unsuccessful attempt to clean the garment and it was shipped to me anyway.

Stunning gown for Hindu wedding
I wore this to a Hindu wedding, since my dressy sari is in storage in another state, and I really didn't want to buy a second dressy sari. With the one-shouldered cape and floor-skimming length, this dress seems like it nods in the sari's direction, and I loved it! I'm 5'6.75", I usually wear a 2 or a 4 in commercial sizes, I wear a 6 in most designer sizes. I gambled and went with a 4 here. It looked pretty good with Spanx, which I forgot to pack, so on the day of the event it was lumpier-looking than I really wanted. It's a gorgeous gown, though, and I'd definitely rent it again, or maybe I'll try the bolder-colored one...

Stunning, classy dress!
The bride took a moment out of her special day to praise me for being best dressed at her event! This dress was stunning. The caped sleeve provides an extra aura of glamour. The dressed is lined for smooth look all the way down. I am 5'8" and wore the long length with a pair of 3" heels. It was just long enough to not craze the floor but show a little peep of my gorgeously paired sandals. The seam connecting the cape at the should did seem to pull away a bit, but otherwise this dress is classy, unique well made and just stunning!

Gwyneth Dress x 10
So Gwyneth at the met gala however it ran rather large (I'm a 2, occasionally but rarely a 0, and the 2L hung on me). Additionally, the cape is considerably heavier than I had anticipated, so I had to send it back with a heavy heart because the color and cut are so beautiful. If you are going to a gala or event with little dancing required, this would be a great choice.
