Beautiful dress!
Fit like a glove, bust was a bit big for me in the bust so I wore a padded bra. I am 5'7'' 135 32B. I felt so beautiful in it!

Voted best dressed!
This dress is absolutely stunning, so feminine but also sexy. I read the reviews and was worried that the dress would run large, so RTR helped me out by sending me three sizes! I'm glad that we worked that out, because I wore the two and I think I could have worn the 0 (I am ALWAYS a size 4). This dress is great to dance in and was perfect for a black tie fall wedding. I definitely recommend this dress!

Perfect Fall Wedding Dress!
Loved the tea length dress. The fabric is heavy enough to be warm and the pockets are fab! I am 5'8" and it was the perfect length for an evening wedding. Will totally rent this again!

Felt like a princess!
I normally order a size 2 with a backup size as the 4. Luckily more reviews were posted before I received this dress and I changed my backup size to the 0 since everyone said it ran big in the top and my chest isn't too large. The 0 fit perfectly and I am never a 0. With all my rentals I almost always fit in the 2s perfectly and sometimes when it's a real fitted dress, the 4. The material was heavier but I was easily able to dance (and did all night). The colors were beautiful, perfect for a Fall wedding. My friends couldn't say enough good things about it. I felt really beautiful, A+ from me :).

Ladylike
This dress was pretty. Pictures don't do the fabric justice. It is rich and beautiful. The sweetheart neckline is very feminine. I wore the 2 but the 0 fit better. Unfortunately, last minute I realized the hem in the back was undone. The 2 still fit well but was pretty loose in the chest , I was readjusting myself all night. That is why I usually steer clear of strapless dresses- but when I saw this one I couldn't help myself. Overall, worth the rent. So many compliments.

Loved this dress, it just felt beautiful and I felt special in it
The fit was a little big, I usually wear a 10, I wore an 8 in this dress and wished I had a 6. I kept having to pull it up all night, and I'm not exactly flat chested. It needed to be tighter in the waist to help keep the dress up

Way too big for me
Unfortunately this dress was so huge, I didn't get to wear it. Even the zero was falling off my chest/waist. But the fabric was beautiful and the pockets are a huge plus.

This was a beautiful dress. I actually liked it better in person. Perfect for a fall wedding.
I usually wear a size 0 or 2 and went with the 2 for the bust. The length is a little on the long side - was just past tea length on me but worked nonetheless. Pocket placement is a little strange - they hit between waist and hip level towards the front. Not super functional but was still nice to have pockets.

Felt amazing in this dress!!!
Absolutely loved this dress. I fit into the 10, but i was more comfortable in the 12. The only thing I didn't love about the dress is I felt like I was showing too much boobs. I felt a little exposed but I never had to pull the dress up or anything, and my boyfriend didn't have a problem with it ;) also since I'm 5'4" the tea length was almost past my ankles, so keep that in mind for us short people. Either way it was a BEAUTIFUL dress and I felt amazing in it. I can't wait to rent more dresses!

I have a petite body type and I would not recommend it for anyone petite. It's a beautiful dress and I can sometimes get away with 0r as a petite woman but not with this dress.

Do not rent this dress if you have a small bust.
The dress is beautiful, and I loved the way it looked on me, but it was way too big and I wore a size 0. I could not even hold the dress up with tape, pins, or a padded bra. I wore the dress to the event, but after an hour the tape failed and I was constantly pulling it up.

Great Dress for a Black Tie Affair
I wanted to wear something ladylike and dainty to a black tie gala. I typically can wear either a 4 or 6 depending on fit but I might have been able to wear a 2. The dress was great, length hit right above the ankle and the boning was comfortable.

Gorgeous , rich fabric , but garment was so heavy!
This dress is perfect for an event that will not have lots of dancing or moving out of your seat. I am very short and hoped to get away with the dress running long ( like other reviews said ) the length ended up being doable but just walking around my house in this dress for five minutes it was falling off my body. I am petite but curvy (32b-c) chest and curvy hips (36") and this dress did not want to stay up it was just too much dress and very heavy so no way I could handle wearing it at a wedding where I knew I'd be moving around a lot . Nothing worse than yanking a strapless dress up all night ! Would probably be a good maternity dress since the belly would be able to hold the dress up ! I was sad to send it back unworn since it was a gorgeous timeless piece.

Perfect for a winter wedding
I was able to dance all night and didn't have to pull it up at all. It is a thick fabric that made it perfect for a winter wedding.

The material is a lighter brocade with a little bit of stretch. The sweetheart neckline was very flattering, and the waist was also flattering. I loved the high-low hem and to top it off it had pockets!!! Perfect dress, would definitely rent again!

I loved this dress. The cut is very flattering. It does run a little large though . I am a size six and a bit busty, I had a hard time keeping it up while dancing.

I felt like a princess!
I usually wear a 4 or a 6 and the 4 fit perfectly. I am 5'10" so length can sometimes be an issue for me, but the tea length was exactly what I wanted. The heavier material was perfect for an April wedding in Chicago. My favorite rental so far!

Gorgeous dress, awkward fit
The fabric is gorgeous and the neckline is beautifully constructed. The skirt swings perfectly and the pockets were great. It was way too big. I had to wear a really padded bra to keep it up. And even still I was pulling it up all night. On me it was way too long, hit at the ankle. If you rent this dress get a size smaller and be a couple inches taller than me...

I felt like Grace Kelly
This dress was my fav rental yet. The pic doesn't even do it justice, the fabric is rich and vibrant and the tea length skirt made me feel so feminine and pretty. The dress is heavy so I had to readjust frequently but it was still a 10.

The rent the runway staff always go above and beyond!
This dress is amazing! The picture really doesn't do it justice. The colors in the fabric are very rich and it has pockets! It does run large in the chest so I would size down. I got the 10 but I think the 8 would have been a better fit. I had to use a padded bra and some inserts to pad out the top. I would definitely rent again

Beautiful dress
Definitely runs large. I am usually somewhere between a 6-8 and wore the 4 but wish I had rented the 2. It's loose in the hips, which I liked. Dress overall was great and received lots of compliments. Pockets were wonderful. Material is thick and nice quality. Was the perfect tea length on me, but I am pretty tall.

Beautiful and elegant perfect for a formal wedding or party.
This fit me perfect and looked amazing. It was comfortable and I didn't have to worry about it slipping even when dancing. I tried the size 6 and it cut in at my armpits and didn't look good so I would suggest not being afraid to try a larger size of this happens to you because the 8 didn't have that problem and looked great all over. Was floor length on my short frame but I still could of worn flats and not stepped on the dress. This was definitely worth!

Couldn't wear it -– top was so big it fell down!
Man, I really really wanted to wear this to my event. Unfortunately, though it fit in the waist and hips, it was so big in the top that even my most -ahem- helpful bra couldn't fill it out. I'm a 36D, so it's really cut awkwardly! Beautiful colors, great length. I'm super-bummed.

Made me feel beautiful for the event.
The fit was great for a strapless dress for a big bust. The dress stayed put all night., I didn't feel like I was constantly hiking it up. There is boning in the dress that dos get uncomfortable towards the end of the night. The boning was curling in. The fabric is thicker so it's great for a cooler wedding- I would not recommend for a summer/hot weather event.

An absolute dream-wish I could keep it!
I rented this dress for a red carpet gala and the whole experience was exceptional. I ordered both a 10 and 12 not knowing which would fit. Both fit great but I decided to go with the 10 which fit a little better in the waist. I was complimented all night and felt absolutely beautiful. No discomforts or slip-ups, the dress stayed perfectly all night. The only word of caution that I would suggest is to be aware of the hanger straps-they would stick out occasionally and while I didn't notice them during the event I noticed them in pictures later on. Other than that everything was perfect and I would 100% rent again! Rent the runway is an amazing company and my entire (first) experience couldn't have gone better!

Fit very well!
I normally wear a size 12, but the size 10 fit very well. My only complaint would be that the boning kept poking me in the ribs.

Such amazing material! Pictures don't do it justice but is really long if you're a smaller person!
Amazing detailed work with pockets - got so many compliments - but I'm 5' and it hit at the ankle - was hoping it would hit above the ankle for tea length. Oh well! Had fun in it anyway!

Nice cut and good length for shorter girls
Great fit. I ordered to wear as full length dress and it just hit the floor with flats on (5'0"). The material is a bit heavier, which was nice for the cooler evening. The pockets were a bonus!

Elegant and flattering!
I wore this to my sister's intimate outdoor wedding. The dress was an absolute dream. The photo doesn't do the color or pattern justice. It fit perfectly and made me feel very glamorous. It's classy and fun at the same time. I usually struggle with strapless dresses but was pleasantly surprised when I wasn't have to adjust it constantly. I would absolutely rent this dress again. Didn't want to take it off at the end of the night.

Beautiful Colors & Pockets!
I loved this dress! The colors were beautiful, though they don't turn out well in photos with dim lighting. The pockets were so big that I was able to hide my iPhone 6 Plus in them all night. The dress is a heavier material, so I wouldn't recommend wearing it to a hot outdoor wedding. And like all of the other reviews note: the dress runs big, so go a size down. I received many compliments and highly recommend this dress!

I rented this to attend the Emmy Awards and I LOVED IT! Great quality- and it has pockets :) I would say order your regular size and a size smaller because it may run a bit big!

The perfect choice for black tie optional
Received this dress in the remaining two sizes for the event date - 0R and 2R - and was nervous reading the reviews that it would be too big for my 34B chest or too small in the waist. Typically I wear a 2 in this a-line dress style, and (thankfully) the 2R zipped! It was actually a little tight but I appreciated the fact that during the whole wedding and lots of dancing I didn't have to pull my dress up once. Boning only got a little bit uncomfortable towards the end of the night, but that's to be expected after 8 hours of wear (5pm-1am!) The tea length was perfect for my height and the huge pockets were a seriously awesome bonus. I received so many compliments throughout the night, with guests wanting to see the fabric up close (photos don't do it justice)-- I was thrilled with this rental and I was so sad to send it back! As usual, flawless experience renting with RTR, too.
