The dress was an absolute show stopper and I truly felt like a princess!!!
The dress was so beautiful and was so unique and stood out amongst all the other dresses at my Ring Dance. The 2R fit me perfectly and the color was BEAUTIFUL. The dress looks even better in person and no photo does this dress any justice. It was so hard to return the dress, I was so in love. The only cons was that the straps were a bit irritable and it was hard to go up stairs and into my car. Other than that, the dress was perfect!!!

2016 prom dress
the fit of the dress was great except for the bust which was a little loose but filled in nicely with a padded bra. the embroidery around the armpits was a little scratchy but overall didn't give me much trouble. the only thing i would do differently is order a long instead of regular because i had to return my heels and get flats but even then my shoes still peeped out. overall a really great dress, i wanted to keep it after the night was over

Absolutely loved it!
I absolutely loved this gown. I had a bit of a panic attack when I fist received my order because the size four zipper was broken and the size 6 was too large. My event was the following evening but kudos to RTR they overnights me the same dress in a size four and it arrived the next morning. Make sure you have a steamer handy bc the tulle is very wrinkly coming out of the garment bag. Needless to say this gown is absolutely stunning and you will turn heads all night. I was so sad I had to return this dress!

Endless compliments..
I wore this gorgeous dress to my prom and everyone loved it, especially myself! It was very comfy and I didn't have any problems with it. I wore the 6, it was a little roomy but the 4 was too tight to be comfortable and dance in. RTR is straightforward and easy to work with. I plan on renting more dresses in the future.

I was getting compliments all night!
I wore this dress to my Senior Prom, last year I had worn, what I thought was the most beautiful dress I could ever have possibly put on my body, but this one tops that! The dress fit just right, it was a little bit tight at the beginning of the night, but as the night went on it became more and more comfortable to dance and walk in. I was glad I chose this one because it was so unique and no one else had anything like it! It was between this and a plain black dress, but I figured, I will only get to wear a dress like this one other time in my life (my wedding) so I figured why the heck not! I would definitely recommend this dress if you want something that will make you stand out in the crowd and get you receiving complements all night!

FELT LIKE A GODDESS FOR MY SENIOR PROM AND THIS DRESS IS WHY!!!
I absolutely loved this dress! I found it to be very difficult to walk in heels up or down stairs. Luckily the venue of my prom really didn't have many stairs. I found that the dress overall was nude and the only pink on the dress was layers of tulle at the bottom. But reading reviews beforehand I was prepared and matched it with simple subtle gold and pink jewelry. I did find the dress to be slightly small. I most definitely wore spanx. I found the straps to be kinda itchy and tight. Mostly when I was sitting down. Size up is my recommendation. I honestly have never felt prettier and felt the that this dress was the reason why. I was also obsessed with how my accessories and hair complimented the overall look. I hope the next person to rent it feels the same. I also have a tummy and it zipped! I know reading the reviews and seeing everyone's pictures I personally was so scared it wouldn't fit and it did. I'm sucking in, in the picture because well it's a picture. But the Dress had a little give in that department. Just felt like I should be honest because I know the anxiety of only having these images and reviews to look on while your dress arrives just two days before your event. You'll look great! I highly recommend this dress. You're STUNNING with or without dress! Best of luck

This dress was amazing, unfortunately the one sent to me had some small holes in the tool. Check your order upon arrival, bc a new one can be sent overnight (which I was unaware of at the time) otherwise this dress was absolutely stunning!

Show stopper but ill fitted
First off dress is beyond gorgeous. I literally was complimented every two minutes. The pictures don't do it justice. It really was grand. Now on to the cons. The dress's construction was horrible. I originally ordered a 6, my normal dress size, in black. When I had to zip it up the back it wouldn't budge. Thankfully RTR shipped me this as a replacement. I went up two sizes to ensure the fit. Trying to zip up was a tragedy. I thought it was my body until I took off the dress and couldn't zip it up with ease period. I'm not sure if that was an individual dress issue or in general. Since it was a mermaid style it was super tight by the knee. Because I went up so many sizes it was bulky around the waist. The back was extremely tight and smushed my chest down. All in all I captivated all wearing it but I was so uncomfortable. Hope my review helps the next lovely lady.

Gorgeous, but tight!
This dress is absolutely exquisite. I hesitated ordering because this was for my wedding. Rtr only had this in a 4, and i definitely needed a 6. I made the 4 work but just having a baby you can see it was unforgiving in the tummy. Length was perfect. Everyone was gushing over this. More of a taupe color but photographs rather silvery!

Showstopper!
This dress is second to none! I received compliments from people all night. This dress is so beautiful and unique. A few tips though: this dress definitely runs smaller than expected in the hips/butt. I would order up. It also runs SHORT. I'm 5'8", and the regular length in the larger size I ordered was way too short. You could see my feet, so I ended up wearing the 4L but it was tight. Since there's so much fabric at the bottom, it's difficult to wear heels without tripping, so I wore sandals, but you can't see them. You definitely have to wear Spanx with this dress. Also keep in mind you have to unzip and pull the dress all the way down to use the restroom. Not the most easy dress to wear, but it's absolutely outstanding!

Second only to my wedding gown
Other than my wedding dress, this is the most beautiful dress I have ever worn. I felt like a billion dollars in this dress. I received compliments the entire evening. Oddly enough, the 4R fit looser than the 6R and was slightly longer. Since I'm a little under 5' (and wanted a snug fit through the midsection) I wore the 6. Also, the tulle on the 6 was more pink than the 4. Perhaps the subtle differences are due to dry cleaning.

I felt amazing in this dress!! So glad I heard about RTR.
This dress was fit like a glove. It loosens the longer you wear it, so do not size up. I usually wear a 2 and the size 2 fit perfect!! I'm 5'9 and wore a 2R, the 2L was not available. I did not have any problems with the length of the 2R.

Not for any curves
Gorgeous gown but if you have any any any imperfections in your midsection, it will show!!! I chose not to wear this gown. I looked awful in it. Would look absolutely gorgeous on an Olive skin tone or darker skin tone girl with a slim and tall figure. I am fair skinned and it washed me out.

This dress was gorgeous and so fun to wear!
The only issue I had with this dress was I had to have someone unzip it all the way every time I went to the bathroom since you can't just pull the bottom up. Other than that the dress was perfect.

I rented this Marchessa dress for my old Hollywood glam wedding & it was perfect! The dress runs a little small. I'm normally a 10 but wore the size 12. All in all, this dress is stunning!!! It was the topic of conversation all night! I love this designer! & I love RTR!

Feeling beautiful in this exquisite gown!
I wore this gown to a white tie ball. I would say the fit was true to size. It was comfortable to wear and dance in. My only complaint is the material around the armholes was irritating after a a few hours. The length was perfect, I'm 5'2" and wore 4 inch heels. You can wear anything color jewelry with this gown. I had a silver bracelet, gold/bronze earrings and a told gold necklace. The tulle in the bottom was blush color. Such a gorgeous dress! It's a "head-turner" and shows off the booty. :)

Slightly awkward fabric, made for straighter bodies
It was beautiful online but looked like a sack on me! There was far too much room in the waist. This was a replacement dress for a boning issue I had with the original. I ended up sticking with the original and taping over the boning. Beautiful dress, probably not for shorter girls with large chests.

STUNNING!
I rented this dress for my senior prom and it was perfect! The rose details on the dress were less pink than I expected but it was still very pretty. I wore the dress with gold earrings and I thought it went together nicely. As for the fit, the dress was pretty true to size, however this dress has virtually no stretch to it. It does restrict the legs around the knee area which makes waking up stairs somewhat difficult. Overall, I loved how the dress looked on and received many compliments. Definitely recommend for any formal occasion!

10/10
This dress was stunning. Although it is a designer size, it does run true to size. I am 5'2/5'3 and the 2R was a little big. A 0R would have been perfect. The main of the dress is actually a champaign/nude color, and the tulle is a pale pink/champaign color as well. I wore rose gold jewelry, which seemed to matched perfectly. Since it was prom, my flowers were white roses with pearl accents and champaign/pink tulle. 10/10 would recommend. I would also like to compliment the customer service; I added a dress size 2 days before my order shipped and all dresses came in great condition and on time. Rent the Runway is almost to good to be true.

The most exquisite, unique, and comfortable formal dress I have ever worn!
The only slight con with this dress is that it takes a bit of maneuvering to walk up stairs, but once you get the hang of it, it's not a very big issue. Other than this, it is a perfect gown. The beading is exquisite and the tulle is eye catching, but not heavy or hot. The beading never scratched under my arms, and the dress fit like a glove without being constricting. Rose gold accessories bring out the slight blush color to the tulle and really emphasize the beautiful detail. If you are self-conscious about your midsection, Spanx might be a good idea since the dress hugs the tummy. I wore 4 inch heels with the regular length gown and it just touched the ground at a perfect length. I had the perfect experience renting this dress, which helped make my senior prom even more amazing!

This dress fit perfectly!
I rented this dress for my senior prom and it was a hit! Everyone loved this dress especially me. The fit was incredible and everyone said it looked like it was made for me! I would absolutely recommend this dress to renters. It has enough room for larger bust ladies. It has always been hard for me to find a good fitting dress due to my small waist and big breasts so renting was a bit scary, but this dress was perfect for my body shape. I didn't want to send it back!

I felt AMAZING!
Definitely a tight fitting dress, but seriously amazing. I've never felt more beautiful. I would suggest some nude spanx if you're worried about your tummy. The dress was a total showstopper..literally. People stopped me all night to ask me about the dress. Such a great way to end my senior year of college.

Fell in love with this gown!
I rented this gown for my junior prom. I rented the 4L and the 6L. I put the 4L on first and it fit perfectly. Immediately fell in love. It is a little hard to go upstairs but you just pull it up and bit and you're good to go. Also, if you're trying to hide your midsection the dress is not going to be helpful. One thing you can't see in any pictures is the tulle is several different colors which I thought was really cool. Overall I loved the gown. Can't wait to rent again!

Beautiful dress. Fit perfectly. Wore it to my senior prom.
The dress fits perfectly. I wear a 6 regularly and got a 6L because the 6 was being rented at the time. But it felt not looked no differently from a regular 6. I had trouble walking up stairs, but you could just hold the dress up (duh). Lastly, the color on the picture on RTR is different in person. It's more of a coffee with creamer color than a champagne color. The sequences are like a cooper/bronze color. Also, the bottom is a blush pink mixed with some champagne in there. gold jewelry looks great with this dress. I highly suggest renting this gown! If I could go back, I would've worn red heels instead of bronze.

RTR is reliable and I can always find something beautiful for any occasion.
I ordered this as my wedding reception dress. I decided to go with the 8l instead of the 6l due to the length. I am 5'5 but the regular was too short for me to wear any heels. I was able to wear flats only with the regular even though the fit was better. I would advice that if you are 5'5 and under with heels or you choose to wear flats than go with the regular otherwise go with the long.

This dress made me feel regal! Hugged in all the right places, and nailed my Great Gatsby Party!
I ordered this dressed for my great gastby themed birthday party and received compliments from everyone! It's literally a show stopper! People in the restaurant constantly told me how beautiful the dress was, and how I fit the theme perfectly. I felt amazing and didn't want to take it off. I ordered the size 2R and 4R and ended up wearing the 4R because the 2 wouldn't get past my bust (I'm a 34D and have broader shoulders from working out). The 4 fit like a glove. Like others have said the dress is a rose gold, not silver , and the dress is tight at the knees making walking up and down steps difficult, but well worth how beautiful it is. You'll need help going to the bathroom as well, since you can pull the dress up. (I needed to enlist the help of my mom, lol). I'm 5'3 and wore 3.5 inch heels which left about 2 inches between the dress and the ground. I would have considered a long if I knew that, but did like the fact that the dress wasn't dragging on the gown. Long story short: The pic of the dress on the website does not do it the justice it deserves! This dress is gorgeous!!!!

This dress is stunning for a formal/gala!
I felt like a princess in this dress for a gala. In the photos it looks more white/beige but in-person it's more of a nude/champagne rose gold with sequins which is elegant and not too flashy.

Stunning!
The 6 fit perfectly--I am usually a 4 but with my 34D bust, thighs and hips, the mermaid fit definitely required one size up. Pros: beautiful dress! It is a beige/gold color with intricate and beautiful details. As soon as I walked in the room the dress demanded everyone's attention. I was complimented with every step. Definitely one of my top rentals. Cons: As other reviewers have commented, be very careful going up stairs--hold the tulle and walk slowly. Using the bathroom was not a hassle--you will have to unzip the dress but you don't have to step out of the dress. I didn't need any help using the restroom and I used the restroom 3 times throughout the night.

Ornate, stunning, beautiful mermaid dress!
I loved the dress but I runs a little small on the hip area. I am fortunate that I have rented a backup size 2 to prepare for the event, so I ended up wearing it. However, size 2 is a little lose on the waist and leg side so I am not sure if it is due to the dress running small since my regular dress size is 0. Besides that, the dress is stunning and I loved it.

Comfortable show stopper!
One of my favorite rentals. Comfortable, classy, eye-catching, subtly sexy, and fashionable...what's not to love?! The fabric has zero stretch, so the arm pits are a bit tight and can dig in. Also, have spanx at the ready.

Beautiful gown. Very snug and a little short.
Very snug - difficulty to walk in, but expected from a mermaid fit. Glad I got the larger size. Also - would suggest getting the Long if you're over 5'5. I'm 5'7 and it was too short even without heels. Beautiful gown, but didn't fit as well as I'd hoped.
