Gorgeous dress. The compliments on this dress were endless.
I usually wear a 2 or a 4, but ordered the 4 because the 2 was sold out. I am so glad I did. The 4 fit like a glove. This dress is sophisticated and is great for a black tie event. The color in the pic looks gold, but I would say it is more of a bronze/gold. The length hits just below the knee and it is quite comfortable. One of my favorites dresses by far.

I LOVED THIS DRESS! It fits beautifully and the detail is stunning.
I am very curvy and was nervous about it fitting weird, but it was very flattering on my larger bust and womanly figure. I am contemplating purchasing this dress!

Wore it to my engagement party and received many complements!
It is absolutely gorgeous!! I am 5'4", 135 lbs, and wear 34B, wear size 6 sometimes 4, for which my back-up dress was a 4. I had do discard the back-up one because it was a bit tight around the hips area and it would be a bit uncomfortable when sitting. This dress fits a bit tight at the waist area. I felt very comfortable with this dress, it is very elegant and classy!

OMG!! the most beautiful dress on - very flattering and gorgeous in person.
This dress is stunning on and pictures do not do it justice. I received more compliments on this dress then anything I've ever worn. So worth the value. It has gotten a lot of attention and therefore lots of advertisement for rent the runway

Thou Shalt Not Look Better Than The Bride
So needless to say I did not wear it to the wedding and there is no give to this fabric. It looked best standing as when I sat down I felt I would wrinkle or make unsightly fat bulge. I did not have the appropriate help. So spanx for me would have been great! Beautiful dress stunner. It came out of the bag ready to be worn! Maybe next time!

"Stunning!" That's the compliment I heard most. You must rent this dress!
As co-chair and speaker at a charity gala with over 400 attendees, I wanted a dress that would let me channel Helen Mirren, not great-auntie Helen- RTR to the rescue! I fell in love with this dress the first time I saw it on-line and after speaking with a stylist (thanks, Michele!) I took the plunge. This dress has universal appeal- women of all ages and sizes stopped dead in their tracks, jaws agape when they spotted it at the gala and I've never had so many compliments in my life! The dress is amazingly comfortable and the size runs true (I'm an 8) so I didn't even have to try on the 10 I ordered as a back-up. The jersey lining is thick enough that I didn't have to wear a bra (although did have to maintain excellent posture!) I loved it so much that I wept when I took it off - my magic night was over, but I promise you'll have one if you rent this dress! As a first-time renter I was very pleased with the entire process and was proud to let my gala admirers know that "it came from RTR!"

Amazing dress. So many compliments at my rehearsal dinner.
A bit tight in the shoulders/arms & I have a pretty slim frame. Otherwise fit me like a glove!

Beautiful dress. Did not wear due to fit. If you have a large chest (I'm a 36 D), go up a size.
Beautiful dress. Arrived in excellent condition. Wore the same designer on Easter. However with this type of dress if you have a large bust you must go up a size.

Surprisingly uncomfortable, but very nice.
I almost always rent dresses from this designer, but this is the first time I've felt uncomfortable. The dress is beautiful though. So if you don't care about comfort, it's a great choice.

Classy, sophisticated dress!
This dress was lovely in person and received many compliments, even from people I didn't know, including the waitstaff. There is not a lot of give in the fabric, especially the arms, so take that into account for sizing. It does run true to size, though. I wear a size 4 and it fit perfectly.

Beautiful for white gala
I wanted something a little different to wear to a fundraising gala where the dress called for everyone to wear all white. This turned out perfectly. The dress is a little longer than I expected. I'm 5'3" and wore the size 4. The hem fell well below my knees. I would have liked it to be a little shorter. I'm fairly well endowed and the top was tight enough (but still comfortable) that I didn't have to wear a bra.

Felt so pretty!
One of the most beautiful dresses I have ever seen -- everything about it is elegant. The 8 -- my usual size -- was way too small. The 10 fit well, curve-hugging. As the night went on, the dress started to twist to the left a bit. Not sure if an even larger size would have helped, but maybe. All of that being said, it is gorgeous!

I was sent this dress after my original pick didn't work out. I couldn't have been happier with the dress and it went perfectly with the theme of my bridal shower. I absolutely recommend renting this dress!

This dress was perfect for the evening wedding we attended in Austin, Texas.
The fit is a true Size 4. I also rented the Size 6. The lace overlay on the dress is exquisite. It truly felt like a designer dress. It came perfectly packaged and I was able to put it on straight out of the bag without any steaming necessary.

The dress is beautiful. I normally wear a size 4 so I was expecting the size 2 to be too small. It ran big and was loose especially in the sleeves. I received so many compliments. Overall it was great!

Stunning!!!!
Wore nude accessories, rose gold jewelry and smokey eye. Absolutely stunning!! Sexy but very classy! Great it you want a dress with sleeves, which I did. True rose gold color. Strapless bra a must! Runs small .... especially around neck and arms. I was a little restricted with my arms but not too bad. I saw it at Neiman's for 800 dollars and was thrilled when I found it on RTR!!! Totally loved this dress!!!! Everyone did! Compliments all night long.

A lady's graduation
I rented this for my graduation ceremony. I loved the dress. The dress is made well. The gold was a little bit brighter in person, but it paired perfectly with my taupe colored shoes and pearl earrings. I received the 2/4 and wore the 4. I am pretty shapely and preferred the extra space around my hips and butt. Otherwise the 2 fit perfectly without looking too small and pulling across the mid section. I loved this dress and felt amazing in it.

This dress was perfect as a Mother of the Bride dress. I received compliments all evening!
The dress is beautiful with great detail. It did run small in the rib area and chest. I would have gone the size up from my regular size 8, but they did not have it available. The gold is almost a rose gold on the dress which was perfect for the pink accents in the wedding. I will definitely use "Rent the Runway" again!!!

Ease of ordering and arrival.
I loved the dress but it was tight at the arms. I didn't end up wearing the dress because it blended too much with my own skin color - but still a beautiful dress.

This dress fits like a glove. Flattering from all angles.
This is probably the best dress I've rented in the last 2-4 years. The fit was impeccable and the length was perfect (I normally feel too tall for every dress). The sheer neckline with beading was amazing and I didn't feel self conscious about my arms. I got a ton of compliments at my wedding shower – including from co-workers who saw photos of the dress on Facebook. Love, love, love it.

Beautiful wedding day!
The fit of this gorgeous dress is perfect! Im wearing a size 12 and Im usually a 14. I have big breast so I was very surprised the 12 fit better. It is definitely true to size. I felt bad because I think I stole the show a bit, this is a head turning dress!

Beautiful family wedding
The dress was beautiful and I received lots of compliments throughout the evening from family, friends, and strangers. The dress ran small and I'm glad that I had the option of reserving 2 sizes as I had to size up so that the dress fit comfortably around the hips. The bodice gaped a bit in the back due to having to size up. The dress had a very strong odor of BO right out of the bag and I considered changing into something else but ended up wearing the dress anyway. I will give RTR another chance and rent again.

I loved this dress for my bridal shower!
The dress, for the most part, runs true to its size. However, if you're busty, you'll most likely go the next size up, which is what happened with me. I'm a 34DDD and though the size 8 for, the bust area was rather right and it wasn't comfortable, so I went with the 10. The dress fit comfortably and thought it was a tad bit loose, I still felt better in the 10 than I would of in the 8. Especially since I sat for a good portion of the shower. Love the dress though! It's even more beautiful in person!

Fabulous dress!!
I received so many compliments on this dress. It stood out at a black tie wedding, but was a very appropriate and classy dress. It especially looks great with my auburn/reddish hair. The fit was true to size. It perfectly matched standard gold wedding shoes. My one complaint was that the neck was a little itchy at times. I wore a strapless bra with this dress for added fit and support, even though I have a small bust. I LOVED this dress. It's really special.

RTR Team Review
I absolutely loved this dress! The color and mesh detail make this dress so unique. I am wearing a size four in the photo and it does fit true to size. This dress was fitted in my midsection, waist and hips. Even though it is so fitted I still felt very comfortable and had tons of room. I would recommend curvier women to size up. This fabric does not have any stretch to it. This dress is great for any bust size. I am a 36D and felt very comfortable in it. This dress needs to be worn with a strapless bra. I am 5’9” and he dress was knee to tea length on me. This dress is great for a wedding or any formal party. Pair with nude heels and gold jewelry.

Felt so elegant!
Although dress was conservative, I felt it was figure flattering and elegant. I wore it to a daytime wedding ceremony and an evening reception and felt the dress transitioned nicely. Dress ran tight across hips, so I went with larger size. I had a strapless bra with full cups to fill in the looser top. Lacing is rose gold. I wore gold and pearl earrings and nude colored shoes and bright rose lip color. Because of RTR, I may have been in the the best-dressed group at this beautiful wedding!

Fabulous Dress!
Perfect for a wedding. Thought it might be too white to be acceptable. Turned out perfect. Comfortable without spanx. I am large on top (36G) and it was a little snug, but doable. Really beautiful dress. Detail is exquisite. This is a 'best dressed" dress for sure.

Tight in arms and chest
The dress itself is gorgeous, pics don't do it justice. However the fit is only ok. It was tight in the arms and chest. The fabric does not stretch or give at all. It fit fine in waist/hip/booty. Just wasn't comfortable. I have curves and feel like this dress would be better on a straight stick. I felt thick in the dress, not sexy.

A definite showstopper!
This was the best dress ever! I did not want to return it. I ordered up one size, and did not have a problem with the arms being tight as stated in other reviews. I also wore a bra with clear straps because I felt like I needed the extra support (size 36 DD). Be sure to wear the right undergarments, because the sheath shaping will show any perceived imperfections. I received so many compliments and it was the perfect dress for a late afternoon / evening wedding. I will definitely rent this one again, and may even purchase if the price comes down! You will not be disappointed with this dress.

"O.M.G... That dress!"
Total show-stopper! Period. I have NEVER received so many compliments on my attire or how pretty I looked in general (other than my wedding day). This dress looks like a million bucks and makes you feel equally as lovely. It's modest, (but kinda sexy at the same time), elegant and luxurious! I ordered a size 8 (with a 6 as a backup). I wore the 8, but wished I could have tried on a 10. If you're busty - I recommend either duck tape or a larger size. I'm also super sensitive about my upper arms. The sleeves were not too tight at all. Overall experience with RTW was flawless! I cannot wait to do this again.
