So many reasons to get this dress!
Wore this to a gala. Got so many compliments and the best part was that I was comfortable all night! This was very flattering up top but loose in the hips so I didn't feel stuffed into the dress. Make sure to have some fashion tape.

Beautiful, sexy dress!
Not the most comfortable, but got a ton of compliments. Invest in some fashion tape for this one.

Cute dress. Good for pear shapes. Very low cut.
The dress felt pretty cheaply made. And one of the dresses had a tear in the seam when it arrived at my house. It is very low cut and I felt a little self concious that I was going to fall out, since I am a D cup, double sided tape would probably have helped a lot but since I was breastfeeding at the event it would have defeated the purpose of the dress. It was cute however and it was super easy to feed my baby in.

I got SO many compliments on this! The fabric hugs your body so perfectly, it looked amazing!
I'm 5'3", bust 32DD, and typically wear a size 0-2 in dresses and blouses. This dress hit the floor at the perfect length for my height, and my boobs weren't popping out (a rarity!). Some fashion tape was all I needed to feel amazing.

Amazing dress, but Long is still a bit short for taller girls
I'm 6'-0" and still like to wear heels with formal dresses. This dress fit like a glove on top and midsection, not too tight, but enough to hug and be flattering. For reference I'm almost always an 8 so I found this fit to be very true to size. I wore 3.5" heels with this and the 8L was still about 2" shorter than I would have liked. I'm not sure that anyone else noticed, but I definitely could. Should have had a backup pair of shorter heels!

Loved the fit of this dress.
Loved the look and fit of this dress, but I was self-conscious about the low cut all night. I used some fashion tape to keep the neckline in place, and that was fine while I was standing, but once I sat down for dinner, things started to move around. I loved how the lace panels showcased my small waist and the skirt floated out and away from my wider hips and thighs. Overall, very glad I rented this dress!

Fit perfectly, was very flattering. As comfortable as it could be (needed boob tape, and cap sleeves can be challenging). Loved it.

Compliments all night
My body has changed a bit since I had a baby. I am 5'3" 139lb wearing 4" heels and 34D --- after I taped up my boobs a la Kim Kardashian - WOW! I recommend this dress, it's fairly forgiving in the waistline too so no need to stress about having a perfectly flat tummy. Loved it.

Stunning dress with many compliments
This dress was very simple but still very beautiful. I didn't realize how revealing it would be chest wise when I ordered it, but with wearing petals I never felt like I was at risk for indecent exposure. My biggest complaint was not being able to wear spanx with this dress (because they either show through the cutout or the bottom of the deep v) but if you can look past that it was very comfortable for dancing the nigh away! Also at 5'11" the long came to the top of my ankles, so I didn't need to/couldn't wear heels.

Not For Busty Girls
I did not wear this dress. It's not the dresses fault, I read the reviews and thought I'd try it anyway, silly me. The plunge is very deep so if you have a large chest, you can't wear a bra with it, also because the lace cut-outs. No bra is not really an option for me at 36GG. It was a beautiful gown but not made for my body.

Loved the color and design of the dress. Had a great time twirling in it.
I was looking for a dress that made it easy for me to nurse my son. We were invited to a Black Tie/Formal wedding and really wanted to wear a gown. The gown is tight in the armpit area and that is why I went with the larger size, since I was also babywearing my son in a ringsling. I could have easily worn the size 4, but, for my comfort, went with the bigger size. The dress has a deep V in the front and I definitely needed something to keep my modesty. I did have son in a sling over the dress, so that helped. I would probably rent this dress again in the future.

Beautiful gown!
This dress was gorgeous and I received compliments all night. Needed some double sided tape for the top because when you sit it gapes open a little. It stayed mostly in place all night though. LOVED the side lace cutouts. Very elegant with a touch of sexy. Fits pretty true to size, but if you're tall and want to wear heels, definitely get the long!!! I had the regular and it barely skimmed the ground with flats on. Overall, I really liked this dress.

Bold and unique dress.
This dress was very different and fun to wear for a change. I'm 5'8" and found that the 8L fit like a normal length dress with my 3" heels so definitely get the long if you've got heels. I'd recommend this dress for formal events, but not great for dancing. The cap sleeves are pretty restrictive and the plunging neckline doesn't allow for free movement. Overall it was a fun dress to try, although don't think I'd wear again. I wore sticky bra cups and used fashion tape which overall kept things in place.

Sexy and Comfortable
RTR sent this dress as a replacement for the dress that I initially ordered which was not available at the last minute. I wore it to a black tie optional wedding in September and it worked out perfectly. Even though I'm small on top, I had to secure the neckline with fashion tape. The dress was really comfortable to dance in, didn't wrinkle, and was sexy. I would definitely rent this one again.

I got a handful of compliments and my boyfriend liked it. I enjoyed wearing it all night!
The 2P was perfect. I'm only 5'1" and the dress nicely touched the floor. Tape was definitely needed to keep from being over revealing. The dress was easy to wear and not constraining– I could easily dance in it without the dress tape coming off. The blue isn't as royal as it looks in the picture.

First time using Rent The Runway and I was more than satisfied! Will use again!!
I loved this dress and received a lot of compliments. I love the color and the fact that it has little sleeves. I don't particularly like wearing sleeveless in the fall so the sleeves were perfect. The wedding that I went to was very fancy, so I'm glad I was able to rent this for the occasion. It was sexy and sophisticated, and I liked that it also created the illusion that I am taller than I actually am. (I'm only 5'2") I recommend buying a plunge bra to wear with it. I found one at Kohls online that was perfect for this dress - you could not see the bra at all and it kept everything in place.

Great service, disappointing product
This was my first time using RTR. While the service was wonderful, I was not happy with the gown. I had about 10 dresses saved in my favorites and when I was ready to order not a single one of them was available for the date I needed. The dress I wore was one of very few options I had left. The gown fit beautifully but definitely ran small. The fabric was very thin and the deep neckline was an issue even with fashion tape. Also, the gown does not reach the floor so be ready to show off whichever shows you decide on! The only compliment I received all night was from my husband, which was disappointing after reading other's rave reviews. I would use RTR again, but I have to admit I'm a little hesitant.

This quality of the dress is great and the top is beautiful but if you are tall beware! I am 5'10 135lbs and ordered the 4L and it hit me above my ankles :/ I could not wear the dress due to the too short length (even in long).

Perfectly classy dress with a twist
I rented this dress for my husband's military ball and it was absolutely perfect. I ordered the 6L and 4L, knowing 6L is my go to dress size. I ended up wearing the 4L, and if I could do it over, I would have even liked to try on a 2L it ran so big. It was a perfectly classy and elegant dress with a gorgeous twist of the plunging neckline and lace cutouts. I received nothing but compliments on this dress. My only complaint was that it was a tad short and didn't cover my toes. I'm 5'9 and was wearing 3 inch heels.

Great night made better with a great dress!
I'm 5 foot even so I was super excited this dress came in petite. I wore 0P and weigh 113 lbs. It fit wonderfully, and I received compliments all night. I recommend double-sided tape because of the deep V-neck.

The right mix of sophisticated and fun.
Wore this for Barrister's Ball and got so many compliments! The fit was almost perfect. Definitely recommend double stick tape and perhaps little "cutlets" for us smaller-chested girls. Unfortunately there were no P sizes available for my event, so went with R. Platform heels worked for my 5'3" height. Loved it and would rent again!

Perfect for the occasion
The fit was true to size in my opinion. I wore a u shape plunge bra without it showing at all. The 2p was right at my feet in four inch heels. Definitely sexy without being over the top.

I felt stunning in this gown! I received so many compliments!
This dress was very flattering. The 4R fit perfectly. I loved the deep V neckline and lace cutouts! However, these made it impossible to wear a bra. But a little fashion tape prevented any slippage. The length was perfect with 3in heels. Tons of compliments the entire evening! I felt sexy yet elegant. I definitely recommend this dress!

Great staff who send needed sizes quickly
It runs a bit big. I had to wear a 2P, and it was still a little large in the bust and hip area. I am not a busty lady, and could not wear a bra at all due to the deep V cut, not even stickies because they would show through the lace. Sitting kinda made this a challenge as i had to make sure i wasnt slipping out. Two of the dresses of the three that I received had small holes in the lace but they were barely noticeable. Overall, very sexy dress that my husband loved and I received multiple compliments on it.

I felt gorgeous
I run right between a 6 and and 8 and this was very true to that. The 6L fix, but with some fabric bunching, but the 8L laid perfectly and wasn't too loose with the addition of a little fashion tape. The length was perfect and I was able to wear a 2" heel, which I was a little nervous about at 5'9". I agree with some other reviewers that the cap sleeves are a bit restrictive, but I didn't find that it bothered me much. Overall, I fell absolutely in love with this dress. It's beautiful, it made me feel beautiful, and I got so many compliments on it. I wish I didn't have to send it back!

Beautiful and flattering dress! Rent!
I got tons of compliments on this dress! Super flattering with the deep V, lace cutouts and flowing looser bottom. I have broad shoulders so the cap sleeves didn't allow for arms up but that's ok! Beautiful color. I wore the 4L with 4 inch heels (I'm 5'8.5") and it was pretty good. No tripping, etc!

Many Many complements all night long!!
This dress is amazing! It's very comfortable allowed for a lot of movement and was easy to dance in. I wore 3 inch heels and it fell perfectly. The chest area required a lot of fashion tape to prevent any slips. I wore this to a gay Mardi Gras bal, and this dress even had all of the gay men complementing!! I got many complements from women, men, gay and straight. The cap sleeves were slightly restricting but nothing that prevented me from doing anything. There are no cons about this dress. I wish I could buy it!!

Loved this dress! Got so many compliments!
The pictures don't give this dress justice! It's beautiful and elegant. Wore it for a ball and felt like a million bucks. The fit was great! It did feel a little big on the sides but not anything anyone would notice or see. I personally just wish it was tighter in the sides for my figure. I wore a 0P which was perfect for my size and height. Had no issues with the length as I wore 2 and 1/2 inch heels. I also didn't wear a bra as the lace cutouts prevented that but I felt comfortable without it. A the lining is thick and I used fashion tape to keep the dress in place. Loved everything about this dress! I would highly recommend it for any special occasion.

Gorgeous dress!
Loved this dress! I wasn't quite sure, since the low neckline is a little outside of my comfort zone, but it is a favorite! The lace is tasteful and the plunging v-neckline worked for me. I wore a sticky bra with it since I didn't like the braless look. The dress has a slim cut to it so you have to wear appropriate undergarments. Glad I got the L as it just skimmed the floor with my 2.5" heels. The regular likely would not have worked even in flats! Beautiful dress, would rent again!

Fun, Sexy, Classy Dress
This dress is amazing to wear and fits nicely in the top. I had no concerns about slippage or showing to much. The lace on the sides is very flattering and helps add a little flair to the dress, but being 5'3'' the length was perfect, the fit was perfect, and I felt amazing in the dress. I highly recommend.

Gorgeous and a shame I didn't get any photos!
I'm 5'2'' and bought 3 inch heels to wear with the 2P and the length was perfect. That was my biggest worry about being on the shorter size and ordering a long dress. The opening in the front does go, at least for me, all the way to wear a typical bra would be on your chest/top of stomach area. Very low cut and I used fashion tape to avoid any Opps! I didn't wear a bra either. I'm more rounder on my backside and the seam of the dress sits a little odd on my backside but not something I believe other people would have noticed.

Great dress! Very flattering and got compliments all night long. Perfect for a black tie wedding!
I'm 5" 9' and the 4L was almost too short. I wished it had been about an inch longer - tall girls beware! The material was thick and draped nicely. I was initally concerned about the deep V in the front but it did not expose any cleavage which was great.
