Gorgeous!
I loved this dress- requires a bit of fashion tape in the front but otherwise was fabulous! The back was stunning.

Definitely runs large. Got the 4p and still had to pin up the neck. It was very comfortable!

Stunning and Comfortable!
I LOVE this dress. I wore it to a formal wedding. The dress fits fairly true to size. The length was perfect, I am 5'5" and wore 3" heels. The waist fit well. The top portion was slightly big, but I have a small bust (34B). Fashion tape helped to keep everything in place. The dress is very comfortable. I wore it from 11:00 a.m., drove for 2 hours to the ceremony (no wrinkles) and didn't take it off until 12:30 a.m. I would consider buying this dress if I had more formal events to wear it to. Thanks RTR! You are awesome and I love that your company is environmentally friendly.

I felt gorgeous!
This dress definitely ran big. I had ordered the 2L as well but it wasn't available when my rental date came around. I definitely would have gone with the smaller size. But regardless, this dress was beautiful! It made me feel sexy, yet classy. Just don't forget the fashion tape! Was complimented all night!

i loved this dress as did my boyfriend. i felt at my best in it.
im 5'2" 150 lbs the dress runs large im usually a 6 but wore the 2. the R length was a little too long for me i would recommend the P for my height. i also had to pin the boob area because that was a little baggy and also used double sided sticky tape for extra protection.

My first time using rent the runway and I will definitely do it again!
It fit well and I got so many compliments from everyone! It was simple and elegant and easy to dance in as well. The only hard part was that even the petite was a little long for me. Also, I am 5'1" and 115 lbs and have an athletic build with a small waist and chest. The chest was the only thing that was a little bit big but was fixed with tape easily.

Classy and elegant
I'm in LOVE with this dress. So many compliments. I'm typically in between sizes (10-12) and the 10L fit great. I was able to get away with wearing flats because I am tall but it's definitely a long dress. Perfect for an early fall outdoor wedding. A little double sided tape worked great to secure it for a reception full of dancing. Sad I had to return it!

I usually am a 6 but very glad I ordered a 4 because it fit with room to spare. It was very comfortable! I am 5'4" and the length was perfect with a small heel. Would rent again!

Everyone loved it!!!
I loved this dress! It's a little low cut and gaps at the top because it runs big but with some fashion tape and a little pin job it was perfect. Everyone kept asking me where I got the dress all night!

Great for gala, had to pin the halter neck. Purpley-blue
I had to pin the neck as on me the halter straps were too long. I think other reviews had this issue. LOVED this dress, got compliments all night. It is more of a purpley-blue in the light than navy but that was ok by me. Would rent again.

Sooo many compliments!!
I loved this dress! I'm 5'4" and wore the regular with 3inch heels and probably needed higher heels because I felt like I was pulling it up to dance. Fashion tape is a MUST! I am between a 6 and an 8. I wore the 8 but probably could've gone with the 6 it just wasn't available for my last minute rental!

Beautiful, elegant, classy (as long as you use double sided tape).
I'm normally a size 6, but will occasionally wear a 4 in dresses. I sized down to a 2 and it was fine, but I think a 4 would have fit as well.

Felt so pretty!!
Fit well. I'm 5'7" and would have liked it a bit longer but it was still great. Wore stickies instead of a bra. Covered enough so I didn't even have to think about what I was wearing. Loved it.

Loved this dress! Fits true to size. Length hit's the floor at 5'4"
Worn for a day wedding in October in NH. Very low cut but double sided tape held everything in place and I didn't worry about it. The length was actually great, I'm just about 5'4" and it hit the floor without shoes on. I wish I had a picture of the back, I was worried about creating/showing excess back fat but it didn't do that at all. I would love to own this dress!

Really great for a formal wedding
Per the reviews, I ordered a size down from my normal size. The dress fit perfectly, but I was pretty uncomfortable since I was 10 weeks pregnant at the time of the wedding. If you're not pregnant, a size down would probably be great. I wore 3-4" heels and the length was perfect. Don't forget the fashion tape for the boobs. I taped myself in and all was well.

Not a flattering top
As other reviewers have mentioned, this dress runs very large on top (I'm a 36D). I found it very hard to get a good fit without gaping even with fashion tape and a smaller size. It is also very loose on the sides. Wasn't for me.

Comfortable and pretty
Great dress, really comfortable. My only issue was I found the top really large. I have a larger chest but didn't feel like I filled it out and it gaped on the sides. I had to pin it on the side and make the neck tighter so I felt comfortable. Great material though and super comfortable, danced all night!

Great Bridesmaid Dress
I wore this dress as a bridesmaid. It was beautiful, easy to move in, and comfortable. I did use fashion tape to ensure that everything stayed in place. I had to pin the neck a little to remove some slack since I have a smaller chest. I think the 0L would have fit my top better. This dress is forgiving in the hips. The clasp on the back did eventually irritate my back after 6+ hours in the dress.

A winner with duct tape
I'm well endowed and have always avoided plunging can't-wear-a-bra dresses as a matter of course. But to wear this dress I took a leap and used duct tape to hold the girls fast and enjoy the plunge. I didn't need any fashion tape; I filled out the top nicely and the duct tape kept me comfortably dancing all night. I put a pin in the neck to shorten up the halter (and overall length) since I'm short and the dress is better for someone taller. I feel like the overall length balances out the plunge for an overall classy look. It was very elegant for an evening wedding and fun without being garish.

Lots of room in the chest- make sure to get tape and to practice before the event
I intended to wear a sticky boobs bra with this and fashion tape at the bottom to conceal the connector clip but the V was so deep and there was so much room in the top that I had to go braless and tape everywhere- top, sides, middle and the seams in the dress. It was a hassle for most of the night to make sure the tape wasn't showing. Beautiful dress but not my favorite experience. I am 5'-5 and wore 3" heels and the length was perfect. Loved the pockets. I usually wear a 6 or and 8 and probably could have worn a 4 in this dress.

The dress runs super big up top so I definitely could not fill it out. I ended up pinning up the straps to make it fit better!

Fun, flattering dress!
This was a very fun dress to wear to a wedding. It does run big. Due to availability, I ordered a 6R and an 8L. I usually wear anywhere from a size 8-12 depending on the dress, but the 6 fit. However, the regular was way too short for my 5'10 frame, so I wore the 8L. The strap behind the neck was too long and the chest was a little big, but it was very wearable after I pinned it. I think a 6L would have been perfect.

Not the right fit for a long torso
The true waist was too high (up on my ribs) so the flow didn't work. I loved the top part of the dress, but couldn't wear it.

Perfect dress for a black tie optional wedding.
The website won't let me add my information (and error message keeps popping up), so for reference I am 5'9, a 32DD, hourglass, and 138 lb. After reading the reviews I sized down and I ordered a 2L and a 4L. Even the 2L was a little loose in my waist (I do have a narrow waist, especially compared with my butt). A 0L would have been perfect. I am almost always a 6, rarely a 4, and never a 2, so the fact that I needed a 0 is a testament to how large this dress runs. If you are smaller than a 6, I would not recommend ordering this dress. Length was perfect with 2.5 inch heels. The straps were a little long, so I safety pinned them up a bit, and the fit was perfect. No fashion tape needed! It felt very secure and no gaping in the bust. The back is very low and dramatic, and I got a ton of compliments. I loved loved LOVED this dress and would definitely wear again!

Runs large but otherwise pretty
I got lots of compliments - this dress is very pretty! It has a low back so you won't be wearing a bra, or get some pasties. I also put some fashion tape at the base of the neckline which was a couple inches above my belly button, because otherwise when you bend forward everyone would be getting a peak!
