Beautiful gown for a black tie event

I wore this dress for a black tie New Year's Eve party and it was fantastic. It fit very well and seemed very true to size. Great dress for a curvy/hourglass figure.

I got so many compliments and told I looked like a movie star

This dress is beautiful. It is fitted, so Spanx came in handy. I am 5'7" and the long was the perfect length with kitten heels. Loved this dress!

Perfect dress for a fancy winter wedding

Wore this to a friend's wedding in NOLA. The 12L was fitted but not skintight on my hourglass frame; I'd describe it as sophisticated and a little sexy. I'm a 32E and normally a 10 on top/12 on bottom. I had no trouble dancing and felt right at home swanning around with a glass of champagne (it was a very fancy wedding). I'm pretty tall, and the L was perfect with 4" heels (but not terrible once I exchanged them for flip flops at the end of the night.) Couldn't have been more perfect. :)

Dress was wonderful. The entire Rent the Runway experience was great!

A glamorous dress for a formal black tie wedding. I felt great about how I was dressed. Would use Rent the Runway again and have already recommended it to friends and family!

Head-Turner!! Wow!!

I am 5'7" and this dress was worn with barely an inch heel and you could still see my shoes when I walked but regardless, this dress is stunning! I have a small chest so I put on a larger strapless bra and it really filled out the dress! My only concern throughout the night was the see through top part extends low enough in the back that I made sure my bra strap was pulled down and had my boyfriend check every once in a while. It's a nice snug/comfortable fit but still dance-able!

Great fit. Beautiful dress

This was sent as a backup when my original dress was returned damaged. I couldn't be happier with this replacement. I wore the 6L which was a little loose in the stomach, but the 4L was too tight in the arms. I'm 5'11" and I wore flats and the dress was just off the ground. Wish it had been a little longer. I got tons of compliments in this dress and I was comfortable all night.

This was an amazing dress for my barristers ball! It was perfect for our Gatsby theme!

I thought the 6R was a little short, I could see my shoes and that's a pet peeve of mine. So I wore the 6L with 4 inch heels and it was perfect! It was easy to dance in and I was complimented over and over. It was a wonderful dress.

Got compliments everywhere I went!

This was a replacement dress for a dress that didn't show up. I'm glad it didn't! This dress fit me perfectly, was beautiful, comfortable, interesting, elegant, flattering...I got compliments all night at the White House Correspondents Dinner After Party and danced the night away. I could live in this dress!

Thanks Rent the Runway for the great customer service!

After the dress I had originally ordered was retired , I was offered a new dress and accessories for no extra charge. I ended up receiving four to pick from! I ended up picking wearing this beautiful gown and got many compliments from people I didn't even know. It fit well but it seemed to have a little extra mesh fabric along the neckline. Thanks Rent the Runway for a great prom experience!

Love this dress!

I wore this to my senior prom and loved it. The fit was true to size and a very flattering shape. The bodice was a little bit itchy and uncomfortable by the end of the night, but it was nothing unbearable. I wore it with 4 inch heels and the length was just right.

I wore this dress for my boyfriends prom and blew everyone away

i have a very curvy figure despite being a size zero, the waist didn't quite fit. and was a bit tight at the breast but still looked dazzling. the pattern is great and I highly recommend this dress! I was very happy with it!!

Very flattering and forgiving. Felt beautiful all night. Great to dance in! I'd rent it again!

I ordered the 10r and 12 r. Both fit but 10 was snug. Length was perfect with about a 3" heel for my short frame.

Awesome gown!

This gown was amazing! At first when I saw it on the hanger and on the model online I was weary but it knocked my socks off. I had so much fun with the flirty bottom and it was so easy to dance in. I wish I could've gotten the long but I'm 5'8" and the regular was fine with a 1inch heel. I wish I could buy this dress because it was awesome!

I went to the Georgetown store to try it on and never would have rented this gown otherwise!

I got so many compliments on this dress. It was so comfortable and the perfect length. I have a large bust so I went up in size, but the 8 was just fine.

Stunning dress that is runway worthy!

I wore this to a Great Gatsby themed black tie fundraising event. This dress was truly stunning! I ordered the 6R and 8R, depending on the style of the dress I can be either size. I ended up wearing the 8R, gave me a little more wiggle room with my 15week pregnancy bump that has begun to show a bit! I received so many compliments throughout the evening, I felt great in this dress! I paired it with some pearl drop earrings and black and gold peep toe sling backs. I am 5'4 and wore a 2.5-3in heel and it was perfect! Would have looked good with a higher heel as well. My black strapless bra worked well, make sure it's a sweetheart style or plunge so it doesn't show. Didn't want to send this dress back! A true head turner, you will get noticed in this dress!

Great fit, very flattering material, gorgeous dress.

This was my backup dress and it ended up working out great. I wore it for a black tie wedding that was full of Hollywood stars yet I got approached by strangers all night who told me my dress was their favorite out of everyone's. The material is very flattering with the pattern to help hide any tummy imperfections you may be self conscious about. I'm 5'3" and I wore the 6R with 4" heels and the length was perfect. The dress was easy to walk and dance in. Material got a little scratchy around the arms and beck but nothing too bad. I would wear this dress again if I had an occasion to wear it to.

Stunning gown - turned heads all night!

The dress fits true to description. I am 5'3" and have prominent hips - petite but pear shaped. I usually wear a Size 6 and this dress was no different. Hugged my curves in all the right areas! The actual pattern of the fabric and lace was stunning - just perfect for a formal event where you want to stand out from the crowd.

Perfect dress for a black tie event!

Loved this dress! The detailing was beautiful and I got so many compliments on it throughout the evening. It does run a bit small, so I would order an extra dress in a size up. The regular size also runs a little short; I'm 5'6", wore 3" heels and the 6 Long was perfect.

So many wonderful compliments on this dress! Showed my sexy curves well too!

I wore this to a bartenders ball to celebrate the repeal of prohibition. It was a 30's theme and this dress fit perfectly with the dress code! This was my first RTRW experience and I got two different dresses (thankfully because the other one didn't fit well at all and was WAY too short) I knew the second I put this on it would be my dress! We had a wonderful time! Thank you RTRW!! I will be using you again!

Such a beautiful, unique dress. I felt like the best-dressed in the room!

The size smaller fit as well, just a little more snug. I went with the 8r bc I was going to be dancing and wanted to be comfortable. I felt gorgeous, and like one-of-a-kind. I'd totally wear it again!

Glamorous dress

What an amazing dress, I'm still receiving compliments. I ordered the 10 and the 12, ended up wearing the 12 since my problem area is the belly. The length was perfect, the gold details are amazing. Loved everything about it. Very comfortable, did not feel too tight and had a lot of movement.

I felt so beautiful in this dress and the compliments were endless!

The overall fit of this dress was good. I'm 5'2" and wore tall heels with no problems. I recommend a very supportive, low-cut strapless bra. I had opted for an adhesive and didn't feel supported very well. This dress was incredibly flattering in all the right areas. The ONLY con was that I had to put the dress over my head as opposed to stepping into it because I am a little bottom heavy. With that being said, if you have a booty, this dress will definitely make it look amazing! I received compliments the entire night and haven't felt this confident since before I had my first baby 6 years ago. I will be renting very soon!

So flattering! And comfortable!

This dress was a dream. And it wasn't even one I originally ordered! It was sent as a substitute for one of my other two selections, and in the end, I chose it...hands down. There was no contest! The mermaid look was very flattering, and I liked the sheer illusion neckline. I was prepared to wear Spanx, but I didn't need to because the cut of the dress was very forgiving, and the overlay hid any concerns I had. The dress was quite long, but I wore four-inch heels and had no problems walking in it at all. I felt glamorous and gorgeous and received glowing compliments all evening! I recommended RTR to everyone who asked where I got my dress and have to several friends since who have seen photos from the event. I can't wait to RTR for my next formal event! Love!

Loved this dress!! I wore it for a fraternity 100th year anniversary party and stole the night.

This dress was EVERYTHING! The fraternity's colors were gold and black and this dress shut the game DOWN!! It was true to size but I was just a little worried about the length being too short but it worked out.

One of my favorite dresses of all time!

I can not say enough wonderful things about this gown. The fit is amazing and the detail is stunning. I received so many compliments. I do have a bit of a belly and wore spanx, but still needed to suck my gut in a bit for pics. Also, be careful when using the restroom. The fluffy part on the bottom tends to go all over the place.

Gorgeous dress!!! So many compliments!!!

Incredible dress!!! I fell in love with this dress as soon as I took it out of the packaging! I felt absolutely gorgeous, and I received compliments throughout the night while I was wearing it! I'm 5'8 and ordered the 8L and the length was great! I wore 4 inch heels with it without any problems. I would highly recommend this dress to anyone considering it! My only "negative" thing to say is I wanted to keep it forever!

Beautiful details, and runs on the small side. I have an hourglass figure, so was certainly form fitting.

The absolutely perfect dress!

This dress is a dream to wear. I am 6 months post partum with my second child and was nervous about wearing a form fitting dress. This dress fit so comfortably and hid all of the problem areas (stomach). The length was perfect with about 4in heels. This dress truly is a piece of art. The hardest part was returning it!!!!

Wore this to my senior prom: felt like a queen. It's gorgeous and fairly comfortable.

It was a bit tight, but that was mostly due to the mermaid sort of style of the dress. It was also a teeny bit small in the bust on me. Other than that, it was wonderful, fantastic quality, and absolutely beautiful. Couldn't have asked for a better dress.
