This dress definitely made the evening! Perfect length and contour! It was perfect for the evening!!
The gown was gorgeous,!! I was unsure of the size I needed, so having two to choose from was so great. Although I had a few extra unwanted pounds on top of being bloated I was still able to fit into the 8R. I prob could have used the 10R honestly!...but was overall very happy with the fit. There is no stretch to this dress ladies so I would make sure you know your exact measurements especially the bust, stomach and waist before ordering your dress! I am slightly on the curvy side so this dress beautifully defined my features!

Amazing dress! Well worth it.
This dress was just absolutely amazing! Even more beautiful than in the pictures. It was comfortable to wear all night. The dress was a tad worn (you could only really tell if you looked very closely at the details/accents), but hardly noticeable. I was showered with compliments all night! My favorite dress I have rented, by far!

Prom was unforgettable with this dramatic and unique dress!
This dress fit me perfectly! It is slightly stretchy but overall very form-fitting, highlighting my curves without discomfort. I wore it with four inch heels that looked great for the photos, and I took off the heels to dance and the dress was not so long that I tripped on it. It worked well for photos and for dancing all night. I also rented the recommended earrings, and they were great for pictures and comfort as well. Overall, loved this dress and totally recommend this site!

Absolutely Gorgeous Dress
This dress runs a little small. I ordered a size 12 and it was snug but I pulled it off with good foundation garments. This dress is stunning!! I received sooo many compliments on it and I felt like a princess. I'm 5'7 and got the long. I knew I was wearing heals and it was the perfect length with 3" heels.

Beautiful and comfortable!
Loved this dress! Moves well, is comfortable to sit in and isn't too long for any regular pair of heels. Don't know why RTR doesn't have 34dd as a bust size, but that's usually my primary issue with dresses; this one fit like a glove! No adjusting throughout the night and strapless bra works nicely.

I looked amazing in this dress!
I originally ordered the 8L, but there was a problem with the previous renter return. Rent the runway was diligent in working with me on coming up with a solution, and there was no delay in receiving the order. The only other size that would fit was the 10L, which worked just fine. It was a little big in the bust area, but the fit everywhere else was good. 34d, 5'6",normally where a junior 11. As far as length, the R would have been too short, so I am glad I got the L. My heels were 2.5 inches in height, and the dress was just at the floor. I don't like when long gowns show the shoes. Also, it was not so long to cause me to trip. Like I said, perfect! I will definitely rent from here again.

Showstopper, red carpet glamorous
I loved almost everything about this rental for my non-profit's annual fundraiser gala. I usually wear a 4 and I wore the 6 petite because the 4 was just a little too tight on me. But as for the quality of the dress, it was red carpet glamorous and so elegant. I felt like a princess and I had people complimenting me ALL night. Even though I am short, my 3 inch heels allowed it to sweep off the ground so I floated around the room. I wore a strapless bra with it and everything stayed secure all evening so I felt comfortable moving around the event. The only negative I have to say is that I needed my gal pal with me every time I had to use the bathroom because unzipping/zipping the dress was a real process. But I highly recommend this rental, you won't be disappointed. And it was TOTALLY worth the price. I just wish I could wear it forever.

What a GORGEOUS dress!!!
This dress was just perfect for my formal charity ball. So glamorous! I am 5'7" and 129 lbs...I ordered a 2L and 4L. I could have worn the 2L easily and it would have shown my curves a bit more. I ended up wearing the 4L because I wanted to wear a bustier underneath and my heels were about 5" tall so the 4L had a little extra length. It was a perfect fit. I got soooo many compliments and the dress really made me feel beautiful! This is my 3rd time using RTR and I have yet to be disappointed!

This dress is a STUNNER! Perfect for my formal fundraiser gala.
I saw this dress in a photo of another RTR dress I was browsing and had to have it! Unfortunately many sizes were out so I risked a 6R being too small and a 10R (next smallest size available) being too large. So happy the 6R fit like a glove, and normally I wear a 6 to 8 in dresses. I'm short (5'2"), so I worried the R would be too long but it was fine, wearing a 3 inch heel, although I almost stepped on it many times. People gave me compliments all night long. I didn't wear a bra, but it didn't need it. I felt classy but comfortable (I was on the event committee, so had tasks to do). I'm glad to have discovered this designer.

Stunning Dress!
I wore this dress to my senior Prom, and I absolutely loved it! I got so many compliments on it. I originally ordered the 6R and got the 4R as a back up, but I ended up wearing the 4 because it hugged my curves more than the 6. This dress is really lightweight, and it is fairly easy to dance in. One thing I will say is that I am 5' 6", but I got tall heels to go with this dress. It was a little short with the heels, so keep that in mind when picking a length. The gold on the dress is beautiful, but when picking jewelry try to find pieces of a champagne shade of gold to match the embroidery. This dress was extremely unique and classy; I absolutely recommend it!

Beautifully elegant!
Rented this dress for a black tie wedding in DC and it was perfect! It was elegant, had a rich color without being flashy, and fit like a glove for my athletic, larger chested body type. I am 5'2" so I had to wear 5" heels in the 2R, but had no other issues. I received so many compliments on this dress. It was truly beautiful and made me feel beautiful in it. I am already dreading sending it back. I would definitely recommend renting this dress!

Beyoncé Inspired: A showstopper & body hugger!!!
The dress fit perfectly. I'm 5'5 so the 4 regular was perfect. It just grazed the floor all night & I didn't trip over it at all. If you want to show off those curves this is the dress. This was actually my second option. The red Carolina gown was my first option but the 4 regular was waaaaayyyyy to big.

Possibly my favorite dress ever
I was complimented on this dress non-stop. It fit like a glove, but I wore my back-up smaller size (which was fun to do!). It wasn't too long, I was able to wear 2.5 inch heels without it dragging. Stairs were a little difficult, not too much room to climb. It was hard to give this one back! Loved it!!

Customer Service Success - Perfect Dress for Grad school Gala
I really wanted to be annoyed with RTR because the dress I originally ordered was damaged and unable to ship in my first and backup size. The three dresses selected by stylists were either definitely the wrong size or definitely not my style, and RTR was showing an error when I tried to find available dresses. Thankfully, a very helpful customer service rep, Samyra, saved the day by sending me a list of available dresses, and talking to me on the phone to place an order for this dress for next day delivery. The dress arrived at 11:30 am, with plenty of time before the 8pm event, and it looked absolutely stunning. I felt gorgeous in this dress. It is a formal dress, so I tend to size up. I'll wear a 0 for clothes from retailers, but I went with the 2P for this dress and it fit perfectly. I wore 2" heels, and with a 5'4" frame, the length was perfect. This dress was truly flattering. All in all, my experience was a great example of customer service success.

Beautiful dress!
Dress arrived perfectly on time and RTR stylists were great about answering questions regarding my order. This was the first order I've placed and will definitely be renting again! In terms of this specific dress, the gold detailing is gorgeous and it photographs well. The size is pretty consistent with regular dress sizes (so still runs bigger than regular clothing-- I wear a 2 in most clothes). I wore 4" heels and the height was perfect. The dress itself is pretty lightweight and comfortable. I ended up wearing a sticky backless bra as the back strap would have shown through the mesh portion, and it worked out well. It is a pretty fitted dress, but structured enough to still be flattering. Overall, loved it!!

I love the dress! It fit well and was comfortable to dance in all night.
This dress was my third choice. It should have been my first. My 1st dress was unavailable and I didn't like the second. They overnighted this one to me and I LOVED it! It fit perfectly all over. The regular length was perfect for me to wear with platform heels (I'm 5"5'). I was also able to wear a corset style bra as I'm a 32DD and support is needed. The dress is so much prettier in person. I love the way it just sparkles. The only con I have is that the dress had been worn a good bit. The gold was picked and stringy all over. But, you couldn't even notice unless you were scrutinizing the dress, which I did as I wanted to be sure I didn't harm the dress in anyway. Will rent again!

This dress was absolutely PERFECT. Got compliments all night!
This dress was PERFECT for the event. I've rented from RTR every year for my boyfriend's formal black tie event at work that he has annually, and I've never been disappointed. This dress kind of felt like it was out of my comfort zone when I first saw it because of the gold detailing as well as the mermail tail look at the bottom, but I took a leap of faith and I'm SO glad I did. I typically wear a size 6, and it ran true to size (ended up getting a 6L because I saw some mention of it running short but the 6R was good for my 5'4" frame). The dress arrived in pristine condition, and I paired it with simple black open-toed heels and I was ready to go! It's a super flattering dress that doesn't feel constricting, but if you do a little bit of dancing it is a little more snug in the hips (nothing a little hiking up of the dress won't fix). Overall, was SO pleased. My boyfriend loved the dress, and I got compliments all night. Made me feel like a PRINCESS! :)

I got so many compliments on this dress all night long! Absolutely recommend.
I'm 5'3" and size 0R just skimmed the floor when I wore 4" heels. I went without a bra and was not worried about mishaps at all. I danced all night and didn't have to worry about readjusting a single time. I read other reviews about chaffing on the arms, which did happen for a bit, but it was not bad enough to where I thought about it all night. This dress was absolutely gorgeous!!

The dress was above and beyond my expectations.
The original dress I had ordered was no longer available the week of the Gala. Rent the Runway was awesome in helping me find a replacement dress for the event. I could not have been happier with this dress. I am small on top and curvy on bottom, the dress was very flattering and extremely comfortable. The only downside was the expected me to send it back!! I absolutely loved the dress, it was perfect for the occasion.

Loved this dress! I waited last minute to rent a dress for a holiday gala and there wasn't a back up size available-I'm really glad this one fit! Super glam and my friend showed up in the white dress! PROS: -Beautiful Dress -Long enough to wear with high heels -Fitted without constricting breathing CONS: -The bottom of the dress got stuck on my shoes when walking-I just picked up the dress and then it was fine

I felt beautiful
The dress fits true to size but I suggest that if you're body have curves get a dress in a bigger size. I just had a baby 5 months ago and did not take in consideration that I'm top heavy because I'm still breastfeeding. So I struggled at first to get in the dress but once I got in, it fit comfortably and received a lot of compliments.

Light & stunning
I rented this dress for a formal wedding, and I've never rented a long gown like this before. I was actually nervous that it might be too long and would need to pair with 4" heels. But, it turned out fitting perfectly; I wore comfortable 3" heels, which put me at the perfect height and very little tulle was dragging (I think that was the style anyway). It was light, comfortable, and ideal for the gal with a bigger bust. It's flattering, and looks amazing in photographs. I definitely recommend!

The dress was beautiful got tons of compliments!
The fit was good I have more of an athletic build (CrossFit) the 8 and 10 fit great but the 10 had more room in the shoulder/chest area so I went with that one due to comfort I have pretty broad shoulders. Overall I loved it!

Eye catching
This dress fit me great! It was so comfortable and I felt so confident and gorgeous in it! I received compliment after compliment during the whole evening. Wore this for a black tie night wedding in Miami Florida. Only thing was it was alittle big around waist so I just wore a skinny belt to bring it in alittle to highlight my curves. I highly recommend this dress to anyone! I'm typically a size 8-10 and I wore a 10

I'm usually a size 4, so I ended up ordering a size 4L and 2R. Surprisingly the 2R fit perfectly! I didn't have to force myself in the dress. The top was not scratchy at all. I wore this dress from 5pm to midnight. The only minor thing was I am small chested you could see a little bit of my bra in the back. This dress was one of a kind, received soooo many compliments the entire nights!

This was the sesquicentennial celebration for my alma mater. A great evening!
This dress was even more stunning in person. I normally wear a 6, but I'm still fighting off the holiday desserts splurge, so I went up a size! I received so many compliments and really felt beautiful, especially since I was sporting a new hairdo that I was initially unsure about. As with most RTR outfits I have rented, I hated shipping it back! Looking forward to the next event!
