Gorgeous maxi!

In love with Shelli Segal and this was no exception, the fabric flowed amazingly. Only wish I had a full length photo to show. Again, didn't want to send it back!

Comfortable but a bit big

Runs a bit big but this dress is super comfortable and the fabric is gorgeous. The long was the perfect length.

Top portion didnt fit me correctly. Might be nicer for a shorter woman who is proud of her shoulders :)

Flowy and beautiful, but runs small

This dress was beautiful. The back is low cut so I didn't wear a bra, but it was fitted with boning in the front, so it held up my chest. The lower part was very flowy and elegant, the only down side I had was the straps on the arm area are very small. They were very tight and barely fit around my shoulder area. Everything else about the dress was great. Beautiful fabric, long enough to wear heels (even though I wore flats) and great for daytime, wedding or night time with dark lips and fun jewelry.

Good dancing dress

I am a bit busty so it was a little snug up top but fit great. Was able to party and dance all night. I am 5'5" and I got a regular length and the dress was long. Had to wear higher heels than planned but still was super pleased. Looked great.

Beautiful, flowy, comfortable dress! I am currently 5 1/2 months pregnant - very bump friendly!

Only downside is the incredibly long length. I'm 5'2" and needed to wear 6" heels to get the dress off the ground. Otherwise, perfectly comfortable, easy to go bra-less (plenty of support in the dress), and I received compliments all night. Glad it was compatible with my 5 1/2 month baby bump!

Beautiful maxi

Really liked this dress. The low back was very pretty, although you can't wear a related bra. The dress fit true to size. I am 5'7 and wear the 2R with heals and it was plenty long.

This was my backup dress. Didn't wear it but it was pretty.

Straps felt really tiny. If you a big arms it will be tight.

Great dress for a formal wedding!

I ordered a 0 and 2 but for some reason I only received the 2. Luckily, it fit perfectly! Very flattering dress and I got compliments all night long! You also don't need to wear a bra with it which is definitely a plus!

Doesn't have to be formal

Reading the reviews I was worried I would be over dressed for my sisters graduation but paired with some gladiator sandals I felt amazing in this dress. So comfortable and so many compliments. I wish I could buy this one!!

Tight bodice.

I am a 36D with an athletic chest and I could not get the bodice zip comfortably zipped on the 8R. Unfortunately they were out of my backup size and I did not get to wear it. The dress was absolutely beautiful and I wish I could have worn it!

I loved this dress! Very comfortable and fit nicely. Was a bit long even in the petit size and the straps did keep falling off. Got lots of compliments. Perfect for an outdoor summer wedding.

I really wish this had fit me better, was so excited to wear it. The back was gorgeous- the top and sides fit funny- and it just wasn't flattering. So disappointed. But a gorgeous dress on a different body type!

Wonderful glowing skirt

This dress was elegant and great for an evening indoor wedding. I was worried about it being too long but actually wore flats with the 6L and it was perfect. I am 5'8" though. The bodice fit great but the straps fell off when I sat down. Fortunately I had taped along the top of the bodice with fashion tape and it didn't move. But the dress was unique and beautiful. The skirts really flow and swirl. I paired it with a simple necklace.

Great dress! Perfect for baby bumps

I wore this dress to a formal outdoor wedding. I was 7 months pregnant and it fit easily over my baby bump. The only con to this dress was the length, I am 5'2" and was wearing 5 inch heels and I still felt like I was stepping on the dress all night. Other than that, this is a beautiful dress; I didn't want to return!

Wish I owned it

I requested this dress as a replacement for a dress I rented and didn't feel comfortable in. The 8L would have been a better size but was not available at the time. I am 5'9" and 36DD. There was plenty of room in the top and the length was slightly long for flat sandals but still manageable. I was so comfortable all night. Wish I owned this dress. Would definitely rent again.

Easy to wear, comfortable and elegant

I rented an 8P as I'm 5'4" (34DD/130 lbs) and I wore 3" heels and the dress fell beautifully. I was able to wear a strapless bra as well. The straps on the dress fell while sitting, but overall it was a great dress. Super comfortable and moved beautifully while walking.

Great maternity formalwear

I rented this dress hoping it would work for a black tie wedding, being 37 weeks pregnant!! It was very comfortable all around. My biggest complaint was that the straps were too big so they constantly slipped down but I was mostly just excited to find a formal dress that fit around my belly! I am 5'6" and the petite was on the short side. I wore flat sandals and they were a little bit visible. Given my state it worked out well to prevent tripping but I would not have liked the length otherwise. Didn't need to wear a bra so that was great. I was nervous about this working out since I had no idea what size I am right now, and the dress is not technically maternity but it worked beautifully. I was about 155 pounds when I wore this. I would highly recommend to preggos looking for a formal gown!

Comfy on top, long on the bottom.

Wore for a friends outdoor wedding. The top was a bit large (even with a large bust) but was comfortable all night! It was a warm day and I never felt overheated. Warning for petites: this dress is long. Wore with almost 4 in. heels and still had to tie it up while walking and dancing throughout the night. The dress came with a couple rips (likely from being stepped on by previous renters). So beware if your concerned about that.

Formal, flowy gown. Loved the back!

Rented the 6P as backup but would have preferred a 4. I'm 135 lbs with 32DD bust and the top was a little too loose, so I used fashion tape. Also the boning was worn down and sticking into me, but not unbearable.

I wish I could wear this dress every day! It was perfect!

The whole night I kept saying to my friends, "wow, I'm so happy I got this dress, I love it so much!" I didn't have to wear a bra with it, and it still made the girls look good. The bottom definitely hits the floor, and so I occasionally I had to lift it to maneuver, but surprisingly the fabric is PERFECT for magically flowing out of your way when you walk. The only thing that was a little weird was the top of the boning at my breast line seemed as though it had been worn many times and was about to break through. Other than that, this was 100% my favorite RTR find. I felt absolutely GORGEOUS and I can't wait to rent it again!

I didn't end up wearing this dress. But wanted too. It's very cute and comfortable.

This dress fit great. I ended up wearing another RTR dress, but loved this one too. Fit is true to size. The boning in the top pokes up a little bit, but may sit better on a larger chest. I'm 5"8 and could have worn a very low heel or flats with this dress.

A "go-to" dress

I've rented this twice for different occasions. The dress is definitely my go-to maxi because you can dress it up or down. The dress has a structured top so no need for a bra. I also really like the low back as it gives you a lot of room for movement. Can't recommend this one enough!

Perfect Maxi for a Wedding

I wore this for a late September wedding at a golf & country club. The dress was gorgeous and the top fit great, but it was super long. I'm 5'0"- ordered the dress in petite, wore 3 inch heels, and it still dragged on the floor. Beautiful dress, though!

Comfortable dress

Being 4 months pregnant made this dress mediocre. I was unsure about renting it to begin with but it seemed easy so I did. It was very comfortable and fit well however the shapes were weirdly placed on the bottom half of the dress. I usually rent something more colorful and regretted doing so but this rental was easy so I went with it anyway.

flattering dress! got lots of compliments

length was great wearing 4 inch platform heels, and i am 5'8'', it did run a bit small i felt im between a 4 and a 6 on top, so i went with the 6L which was great, if you wanted to add cutlets to the top for a more pushed up look i would recommend, no bra was needed otherwise. easy to dance in very comfortable. i would rent again!

This is a gorgeous dress and looks wonderful on. I got a number of compliments about how it flowed.

This may be a tricky fit, as the bodice and straps are tight. The regular size is quite long, so I would likely recommend this dress for those 5'5".

Bodice is a little tight, and I'm small-chested. But I was still able to wear it without a bra. The long flowy skirt was just beautiful!

This was a backup dress when one of the sizes I ordered was not available for an event. It fit really nicely and was pretty, but I ended up wearing the original dress I ordered. Would probably choose this for a less formal event.

LOVED this dress! So slimming and comfortable for black tie wedding in the heat!

As other reviews said, the top runs small so I ordered a size up (petite - it's long!) and it fit perfectly. I wore a strapless bra with it - just made sure the bra was low on the back so it didn't show. It was SO flattering and comfortable throughout the whole evening. I'm 12 weeks pregnant so wanted to have some room in the mid-section, and this was perfect and hid my extra curve perfectly. It was very slimming. I got TONS of compliments on it. It was also very light, which was critical considering the 85 degree heat. I was a rent the runway rookie and am now hooked!

Beautiful dress, comfortable

If you have a small bust definitely size down - I wore the 2R, am an A cup and would normally be a 4 or 6. The bodice ends well above the waist, so the skirt winds up being very flowy and comfortable. I wore the regular length with 3 inch heels and still had to be careful with steps, curbs, etc to not catch the bottom of the dress. The one I received had a little bit of fraying at the hem. Definitely a dress I would rent again.
