I love this dress. The sheer overlay was gorgeous!

Perfect for a 1920s Great Gatsby Party!

The long was just barely above the ground with flat sandals on. Very flattering for hour glass body type

Unforgettable night at the Emmys

This dress is beautiful!!! I cannot express how many compliments I revived wearing this gown. I had ordered the 6R when I met with my stylist but I was still losing weight and ended up wearing the 4R. Couple of notes: it is tight around the bust if you are larger on top. If you are larger on top, be aware that it will be snug but you don't feel your busting out. The bottom where is fishtails out is fairly fitted too so just be cautious if going up or down stairs. I had people running for me so I avoided them. It is longer and it did get stepped on a few times during the night, so if you're shorter, either wear petite (if they have it) or taller shoes. I wore about a 4 inch heel. But even with all of that, I will take it all for how gorgeous it was. You will have admirers all night long. Guaranteed!!! If you have a booty, it will look even more amazing on you!!!

No words can truly describe how beautiful this dress is in person! I received compliments all night.

I'm 5'5" so I should be a regular. This dress was a backup because my original was too short. If you have long legs, despite your height, order the long! I wore this dress with 2 inch heels and it graced the ground perfectly. I wore the dress to the Marine Corps Birthday Ball and fell like the belle of the ball. Classy, elegant, and sexy all in one! I love(!) this dress. Highly recommend.

Every person I saw told me I was the best dressed!

This dress was exquisitely made, and super comfortable. I'm athletic and always worried that my back won't fit in fancier fesses but I prop ably could have sized down on this one. The mesh on top is not itchy at all and the lace is gorgeous! I'm 5'7" and wore 3 inch heels and it was perfect length. If your taller or wearing bigger heels I would make sure to get the long size! One of my favorite rentals to date!! Even more gorgeous in person!

I wore this dress at my wedding reception and was getting compliments all night long!

The dress doesn't stretch much but was very light and comfortable. I'm 5'1.....I ordered a 10R, which still had a little room to move and dance around and was wearing flats. I would recommend this dress and will be RTR again!

Beautiful, classy, and comfortable dress!

I actually received this dress because my first choice was returned too damaged. I was disappointed at first, but RTR sent a great dress and were wonderful in making sure I was happy and even offered to overnight another dress of this one or my second choice didn't work. I ended up not wearing it because I had wanted something very simple for the occasion I needed it for. However, this dress is beautiful and I wish I had somewhere to wear it! The fit was perfect and true to size. With 4-inch heels the length of the 2R was perfect. Thank you, RTR!!

Stunning

I wore this dress to my MBA gala and it was a showstopper. Hugs every curve, is incredibly flattering, and photographs well. In fact, it looks 10x better in person than in the RTR pictures. If you're tall you'll need the long, I'm 5'9" and wore 1" heels and it was just the right length so a regular would have been very short. If you're between sizes (I'm a 4/6) go with the larger size as this dress has no give.

The most perfect dress for my wedding! I got compliments all day and night!

True to size, had to buy a strapless adhesive bra because it is lower cut than I expected. I am 5'4" and it was perfect with 4" heels.

Stand out dress!

This dress is amazing. It's hugs you through the middle and holds you in the top so no need for a bra. This was not my original dress I ordered this was a backup they sent because the original dress was returned damaged by the person before me. As always very very pleased with my gown from rent the runway!

Felt like a totally princess ... Loved every second in this dress at a white tie formal event

No give at hips, I'm 5'7 and may have been better off with a long vs regular. I usually fit into size 4, really glad I did a 6.

Unbelievable amount of compliments

I'm curvy and short and this was perfect. I'm 5ft tall but wore 4 inch platform heels and the length was perfect. We go to a lot of events, my husband said this was the best dress I've worn. Everyone at the event came up to me to tell me how beautiful the dress was, staff and all. It was a bit tight in the belly, and I had to keep reminding myself to suck mine in! But it was worth it I had no idea what a hit this dress was going to be! What a great night!

Comfortable fabric

REALLY comfy dress. It just sits on the body, does expose a bit of the mid-section unless you are wearing spanks. I opted not too, and was kind of sucking in when I wore it. Rather loose in the upper body, but tight around the midsection. I would recommend to tall ladies with flatter stomachs. A good cut for athletic arms for sure! The dress really breaths well and was super easy to run around in all night.

Absolutely stunning but hard to sit, walk or bend over.

I rented this for a photo shoot with my daughter. It's gorgeous but due to the shape it's very hard to move, sit. I would have been very uncomfortable wearing this for a long time.

Unbelievable wedding gown!

The compliments were so fun and they did not stop!! The dress is gorgeous, I'm usually a size 4 but it did fit a BIT tight. I could've possibly done a 6, but I didn't order a 6. I wore Spanx and it fit like a glove :) I might buy this dress if it goes on sale on the site! Loved everything about it!!

This dress was absolutely beautiful in person!! The pictures do not do it justice!! I rented this for my wedding reception and it could not have been more perfect. It was a little snug in the bust area, but I am rather gifted in that area. Every else fit perfectly and the dress was surprisingly comfortable. The long was perfect. It dragged the floor barefoot but with 4" heels it hit right at the floor. Over all I was extremely happy and was sad to give it back!!

Rented this dress for my wedding day and it was even more beautiful in person. The fabric is stunning and it is true to size, and vey fitted in the waist. It's also not too heavy or too hot. I still get compliments about this dress!

Turned every head and endless compliments all night

This is a gorgeous dress. I received compliments all night at the gala I attended. Afterwards we went to a bar around the corner and it turned a lot of heads. It's material is very light and not stiff. Note the color on the top half is a more blush/tan color, which is almost the same as my skin tone. I thought it was supposed to be more of a white sheer from the photo. It looked way better being my skin tone color. 10R wasn't available for me so I got the 10L. The body fit perfectly and the shoulders weren't as snug as another 10R Marchesa dress I've rented before, but it was a little long since I opted for flatter shoes. I'm 5'5, 143 lbs with a 34DD bust, wide shoulders and narrow back. Usually a size 6 or 8 in dresses depending on the bust. My measurements(bust-waist-hips): 41-32-39.

I am 5'4" and wore 2-3" heels that night and still got the Regular. I'm a 33" bust 27" waist and 36" hips and ordered the 4 and 2 for a backup. Thank goodness because the 2 was perfect.

Classically elegant, yet a bit more haute couture than usually wear. Loved the fit!

Admittedly, I was more than a bit hesitant about this silhouette as it is a departure from the more traditionally elegant evening gown I generally gravitate towards. However, it fit like a glove, hugging my curves in a classic and tailored manner. In a room full of hundreds and despite numerous other RTR dresses, not one other person had a gown with this silhouette and the light color stood out in a crowd of blacks, blues, and reds. This gown definitely falls into the category of ensuring the dress doesn't wear you and that almost kept me from it. But once on, it is exquisite! It does run a bit small due to the fitted nature around the hips, butt, and legs. It is a column dress with the tulle merely an overlay to the gold appliqué underneath, so keep that in mind. It didn't impede walking or sitting though (can I get amen, y'all?!). I am 5'9, wear a 4 or 6 usually and rented an 8L because of my hourglass shape. With 3 inch heels, the gown was perfectly tailored to barely sweep the ground which made walking far less complicated than in usually evening dresses. After the kind compliments I received, I would wear this gown again in a heartbeat - to the grocery store if I had to. ;) Classic, elegant, and chic: I highly recommend!

I ordered the 4L and 6L. I ended up wearing the 6L because the zipper was stuck on the 4L. Lots of compliments! I wore this dress in Black to a formal event in 2016 and loved it so much I rented the White for 2017. Fits like a glove! I'm 5'5 and wore 2 inch heels. Length was perfect to dance in .

An enchanted moment

The size 10 regular fit me perfectly. I wore a strapless bra, because I am a size 36dd, however I could have gone strapless but I felt I need the extra support. That's how well made the dress was. It travels very well, I flew from Detroit to Atlanta with the dress in my carry-on bag, no wrinkles whatsoever. Ready to wear. This dress works well for a person with slim hips, the fabric has no stretch. My height is 5'6, the length was perfect. I received compliments, all night long.

So elegant, detailed, classy!

I fell in love with this dress when I tried it on! Beautiful intricate design.... there is even lace overlay under the bottom part of dress. I felt beautiful enough to get married in this dress! I am 5'4" and with 3" heels the 4R would have fit better, but the 4L was only one available. 2L was more form fitted but still comfortable, however there was rip in lace overlay at seam so I wore 4L. Very comfortable for dancing all night. Not too constricting anywhere. <3

Curve hugging stand out dress!

This dress made me feel like a million bucks! I absolutely stood out along the other formal dresses. The material is thick, which helped to smooth spots I wish were naturally smoother. It definitely fits true to your regular size. The way the dress is shaped helped to bring attention to my curves instead of making them look like they were squeezed into a dress! Wish I could keep this one!

So many compliments! Fit well and room to breathe

The 8L was returned late by the previous renter, so I was allowed to pick from their selection but decided to go with the 10L. I'm a true 8, but the 10 still fit nicely. It wasn't too baggy, but fell just right. I think I would have preferred the 8L, because there was some extra fabric around the tummy area, but overall I got so many compliments on social media. The dress got reviews like, "insanely gorgeous", "amazing" and "beautiful"!
