Nice dress, but wayyyy too long for a petite girl.
I got size 0 and the dress was too long and went halfway down my calf and was a bit loose in the waist area. Did not wear to wedding.

Great idea for a destination wedding! Just dropped it at the hotel desk to mail before we left!
Fit was perfect, fitting tight on the top and looser skirt. Fabric was a beautiful silvery pale blue. Much prettier and flattering in person than on computer screen.

Great wedding!
This dress was great! It hits just below the knees and runs true to size. The fabric looks like it would be warm and thick from the photos, but it's actually very light. There is quite a bit of sparkle to it in the gold threading, but it's not too much. Plus, it has pockets!

The dress was a perfect fit, and the gold threading made it sparkle.
The waist is fitted but not too tight. The gold threading in the dress is more pronounced in person. DEFINITELY pair with gold shoes / accessories. The dress fabric on the one sent to me was a little worn. It is surprisingly soft and comfortable. I thought it would be a stiffer, almost scratchy fabric. Not true at all. I probably wouldn't rent it again, but that's because there are so many other great styles to choose from! I'm glad I wore it to this formal wedding.

I wore this to a Casino Night fundraising party. I felt amazing and got lots of compliments! Loved the pockets! I wore my hair in an up-do.

The dress was perfect for the cancer research fundraiser I attended. This dress is very adaptable.
The dress fit well. I love the front fitted section. The dress is adaptable and I think I could have dressed it up more if I had needed to but it was just the right about with some simple shoes for the fundraiser I attended.

Classic comfortable and can dance all night!
Great simple dress, looks grey in some photos but it is more blue. Pretty shiny/sparkly in person. I would have probably worn a 4, but it couldn't ship (so last minute they sent me a back up option and complimentary earnings!). The 2 fit, it was snug in the bust but worked perfect. The length is great, just above the knees. Nude shoes are probably not the best option. I was matching Bridesmaids so I had to go with something similar to them. Would recommend - like the perfect dress to wear to weddings.

Quietly classy!
Pretty and elegant in a subdued manner. Color is blue with shimmery gold accents. Good length for tall ladies who aren't trying to wear minis. Easy to wear - no special undergarments required. I might have been able to get away with size 6 (if I was less bloated).

Constant compliments all night!
This was my first RTR dress and it was a fantastic experience! This dress felt great on. The fit was perfect and comfortable for a gala event. The length was long enough to be appropriate for this type of event. The color is more blue than the picture shows, but I think that's a bonus! Highly recommend this dress. I was getting compliments on the dress all night, even from people I didn't know.

Dress is true to size. Great for a special occasion.
The dress fit a little snug in the ribs area, but it forced me to stand up straight! Pockets were a plus. I wore it to an event that I was working at. It was comfortable, allowed me to move freely. I also rented the suggested necklace, earrings and bangles. I wasn't as impressed with the way those looked.

stunning!
This dress is certainly light blue with gold details. Something I wouldn't normally have chosen at a store but figured why not rent it and see. I wore it with gold strappy sandals and a gold necklace for my office holiday party and received a ton of compliments . The picture doesn't do it justice. Loved the pockets also! A little tight up top so went with the larger size I ordered for some breathing room, although my husband said the smaller size looked fine too.

Runs long and it's blue.
At 5'6", this dress fell below my knee. In the photos this dress appeared silver, but it's not silver. It's a periwinkle blue with metallic gold threads. It is a thick, but light weight fabric. When I tried it on, I recevied compliments, but I couldn't feel cute in this dress. It doesn't drape and didn't feel like it flattered my shape. It is possible I could have used a smaller size, which would have helped.

Pretty dress!
This was my backup dress that I ordered in only a size 6. Being four months postpartum it was a little tight in the waist area but fit better than my original dress. It has light sparkles in person, much prettier than it looks from the pictures online. I received many compliments on it that night. Probably only needs some large earrings and a bracelet as accessories. Rental was also a breeze.

Beautiful dress! Stood out in the sea of black.
This was my first rental. I usually buy petites so I was skeptical about the fit but wanted to give it a try. I absolutely LOVED this dress! The color is amazing - icy blue with gold accents! Based on the reviews I went a size smaller than I usually wear and it was perfect. The seaming on the bodice makes it fitted and the pleating on the skirt makes it very comfortable and flattering! The length could have been a little shorter for me but it was fine. Received many compliments throughout the night! The necklace I rented with it was perfect also! Wish I had a better picture of the evening...

Great dress for a conservative event.
I needed a dress for a conservative daytime wedding. The color is prettier and more blue in person, and the metallic thread pattern is quite intricate and appears gold in person, not silver (the dress looks silver online, but it's not). The dress was long on me (hit below knee, I'm 5'3"), but that was the point for the event. I'm sure it would look even better on someone taller. The pockets are fantastic and no special undergarments required. I ordered a 4 (my usual size) and 2, and wore the 2. If you have a smaller waist I would size down.

A fun dress that generates a lot of compliments.
I rented this as a back-up for a wedding. My original selection was perfect so I wore this to an after party following the reception. The color is more blue than reflected in the picture. It has a sparkle in the material that makes it better for a party than a wedding. It is true to size and the flair of the skirt leaves plenty of room in the hip area.

Great fit and length
I thought this dress was very pretty and fit really well. I loved that it wasn't too short, being 5'7'' it can sometimes be difficult to find dresses the right length. Looking at the picture you would think that the fabric would be stiff and thick, it is not.

Beautiful dress, lots of compliments
This dress is even prettier then the pictures indicate. I usually wear a 4 but the 2 fit perfect. It was very comfortable and the pockets were so helpful. I needed to keep my cell phone handy for questions from caterers! I do agree with prior reviews, this dress is not for bustier gals but since I am not, it fit great. This was my first RTR experience and it turned out perfect.

Lovely color, nice fit, fabric a little puckered.
I loved the silvery blue color and the fit. I'm 33/26/38 and this had a snug top and flared skirt that complemented my body type. The fabric is heavily embroidered so it's more textured than I was expecting. I could zip the 2 but wore the 4 for a little more comfort.

Perfect for a wedding!
The dress fits true to size and the length and cut was perfect. The dress looks silver in the picture, but in person it's truly light blue with pale gold detailing. I already bought silver jewelry, but it matched fine anyway. Received many compliments!

I'm typically a double zero or zero. Unfortunately the dress was way too big and too long. If there were petite sizes I would be in deeper love with rent the runway.

Classy & comfortable
When I first opened the box, I was very surprised - I was expecting a gauzy, pale blue dress, when in reality, the color is a much darker blue, and the gold is more pronounced. The material is also a heavier brocade (I think it could be worn year-round, not just in summer). However, I ended up loving it even more in person than in the photo! It fit perfectly (I went with the smaller size) and was extremely comfortable - one important note on fit is that it is quite long ( I'm 5'10, and it was nearly knee-length, which is unusual for me!) I wore the dress with the recommended Kate Spade necklace, which received as many compliments as the dress, along with nude heels and a gold purse. Overall the look was a hit! I definitely wish I could wear it again!

Not for the large chested.
This dress ran small and is not flattering to larger chested ladies, the pleating in front also makes your stomach look huge. The fabric is beautiful but it more blue than the picture. I didn't wear it.

Gorgeous rehearsal dinner dress
This dress was subtly sparkly but not too over-the-top. It was perfect for my rehearsal dinner, held at a nice San Francisco restaurant. The color is hard to describe but in my opinion it is even prettier in person than the picture would lead you to believe. It fit very well and was comfortable to wear. By the end of the evening, the fabric felt a tiny bit scratchy on my arms, but I am sensitive to that sort of thing. I got a ton of compliments and felt fantastic in the dress. I should add that I originally chose another dress but when there was a mix-up with my order RTR allowed me to pick any dress at any price, and I ended up with this one -- fancier and more expensive than my original choice, but a blast to wear.

Satisfactory.
I rented this dress for a gala. It is a nice style for a business event, because it's pretty, yet professional. Don't be fooled by the photo. It's not even close to silver. The color is actually a steel blue with gold weave and a slight nude background. Therefore, you'll want to pair with accessories accordingly. Though it's not the most figure-flattering dress, I did receive several compliments about how it would change color in different lighting and it's sparkly. It almost looks vintage. They didn't have a size 4 available so I risked it and ordered a size 2. It fit like a glove. Maybe a teeny tiny bit too small in the bust, but still worked for me.

Not for petite ladies.
I didn't end up wearing this dress because it looked like a sack on me :( However, I gave it three stars because even though it runs large it has very pretty material and convenient pockets and would look great on someone with longer legs!

Lots of compliments, very comfortable, fit well
Overall, I was very happy with the dress. This was the first time I used RTR and I will most likely use it again. I personally have the body type of average chest, small waist, but large hips and butt and was nervous about picking a dress without trying it on. I was looking for a cut that would also hide a recent post-partum belly. The dress fit nicely and I received many compliments. I wore larger earring as my statement piece and some silver strappy heals instead of a large necklace depicted in the picture. The only complaint I have about the dress is that it was (to me) an obvious rental because there were little pulls here and there and string hanging off (not really noticeable to other because of the style of fabric). Because of the type of fabric, my rings also seemed to catch every now and then. It was very comfortable and I would rent it again for sure!

The dress was beautiful and I received many compliments.
It does run a bit small. I normally wear a size 6 but the waist was a tad too tight. I agree with others that the pleats can give the illusion of a tummy, but I took care of that (and the wrinkles from shipping) with a steamer. A lovely dress!

The picture on the website did not do this dress justice. It literally sparkled and was gorgeous!!
I often wear a size 4, but requested the size 6 as well. Offering a second size at no cost is a wonderful benefit, as the size 6 was the better fit. I wore the dress to a cocktail/dinner party attended by more than 100 people. I had on the best looking outfit in the entire room. The dress was a huge hit, and my friends were still talking about it a week later! I would not pay $1300 for a dress that I would wear only a couple of times, so I am absolutely thrilled with Rent the Runway. The rental process was flawless - could not have been easier or more efficient. This shall most definitely be my only go-to place for every special occasion from now on!!

Not flattering
I love the fabric of this dress - it is a beautiful frosty blue with gorgeous gold metallic thread throughout. On the hanger it was stunning. On me - it gave me a pooch around my mid-section. My husband said it looked like there was too much material. Ultimately I think the dress made me look like a little kid. Just wasn't flattering. Did not wear it.

Sparkly but conservative.
This dress cost more than my "back-up" look but wasn't as flattering. If I were less scrawny then I would do it more justice. The front pleats in the skirt also gave me a tummy that I didn't have. It's still cute and very easy to dress up or down with random accessories from the closet.

Elegant non LBD option
This dress has a flattering fit through the bust and waist. I'm just under 5'4, and it hit slightly below the knee. The sparkle of the fabric made it great for a Friday night gala.
