Beautiful dress!!
Loved this dress. I did have to wear a size up from what I normally wear. Also, you can't wear a bra with this dress because the back is low and the cutout in the armpit area is cut weird so any bra you wear (unless they are just cups) shows. Other than that, this dress was awesome. I got so many compliments and was very comfortable throughout the night.

Amazing photo shoot dress
The dress is truly art- the material is thick and has two layers at the bottom. The first layer is a fitted skirt and if you have a bigger booty, hips or thighs, size up. The second layer is an amazing flows skirt. The dress is a bit low cut as well so be aware of that! The material is shimmery in person and the dress is just WOW. Wore this for a photo shoot in DC and it was so stunning that when I passed a fire station they let me get in the truck- now that's a hot dress!

Pictures don't do justice to how beautiful it actually looks in person!
Dress runs a little small and if you have a full chest it might not work for you. I'm a 36 DD and it was a little tight in the chest area but I made it work. The dress looks different in person because it sparkles in the light making that much more beautiful. I really have no complaints about this dress. Everyone told me it was beautiful and I felt like a true princess wearing it.

I loved this dress!
I received a ton of compliments on this dress, starting right when I walked in. I felt like Beyoncé walking around because of the way the skirt flowed behind me. It took some assistance getting it zipped, but once I got into it the fit was perfect. I'd also recommend using tape to keep the low cut from moving around too much. All in all it was a fabulous dress and it definitely turned heads!

Sexy, elegant, ethereal.
This dress was flattering and fit like a dream. I had to rent last minute so it was a bit long, but this ended up working like a train which moved really well with the consistency of the fabric. The structure and unique color make this dress a standout. Compliments all night.

Beautiful dress!
I'm 5'5", 128lbs with an athletic build. This dress fit perfectly! I received compliment after compliment. I'm smaller on top and was worried about it not fitting correctly in the chest or being too revealing, but wearing a backless sticky bra helped. I would definitely rent this dress again! It's gorgeous!

The dress flows when you walk like you're actually on a runway
I ordered a long because I was wearing really tall shoes. A regular would have also been fine

THIS WAS AMAZING. (RTR Team Review)
This is my third or fourth time renting and each time has been great, but I haven't been 100% blown out of the water yet. Now I have. THIS DRESS IS SO GOOD. The dramatic long train, the comfortably snug shorter under-layer, swishing everywhere as I walked. I will say I was wearing 3.5" heels, and at almost 5'4", the train was definitely still dragging. Not great on stairs, but hopefully you don't have to deal with too many of those. Also definitely impossible to wear a bra in; fine for me, since I have very little chest to speak of, but double-sided tape wouldn't hurt if you're afraid of it gaping open. The fabric is very colorful & shiny, but strangely didn't look as gaudy as I feared it might - the cut and weight of the fabric just carried everything beautifully. If this goes on clearance, I am going to buy the heck out of it. AMAZING dress.

The way the dress sparkles in the sun, just stunning!!!
The fit was tight in my boobs only, so much so that the wear the dress I could not also wear a bra. Otherwise it did fit true to size. I think the fit was more of my personal problem vs the dress itself, so if you have big boobs size up!! Either way it was BEAUTIFUL in person , the pictures don't do it justice. People stopped me in the street to tell my how pretty it was. Felt like a princess the whole night!!! Loved it!!!

This dress has by far, been my favorite rent the runway dress!
It fits true to size. I'm 5 foot 3 and about 125 lbs. I wore a size 4R and the fit was perfect. I used the double sided dress tape to keep this dress from having any slips. If you have a larger bust this may be more difficult to wear. Overall, beautiful dress and I got a ton of compliments.

AMAZING!
This dress was an absolute showstopper! I received compliments all night long! The material has no give in it whatsoever so consider that when choosing your size! The 6R fit like a glove, aside from a bit snug around my bubble butt and my oversized hooters (32E!) If I could keep this dress I would. I can only hope I have another event in the future to wear it again!

Non-stop compliments!
I went to a very large formal party at a Casino. I normally don't like wearing dresses because I prefer to be super casual. However, at the end of the night I didn't want to take this dress off! This wasn't the dress that I originally picked but RTR sent it to me because my dress became unavailable. I'm soooo happy it worked out like that. I literally could not take two steps without someone stopping me to comment on my dress. My fiance is also pretty conservative. So I was shocked at how much he loved this dress. Rent this dress!!!!

Great dress, but not for all body types.
This is a fabulous dress, but do not recommend for someone petite with a full bust (I am 5' 1", 32 DD). The neck line is more plunging than it appears on the model, and you cannot wear a bra without it showing in the front and back. On me, the size 8R fit at the waist, but shoulders were too large so the straps fell off my shoulders. I wasn't able to use the dress, but highly recommend for someone who can go without a bra and is tall to average height. Wish it worked for me because the fabric is even more beautiful in person than the photo.

I wore this dress to my junior prom and I have never felt so amazing!
I tried on this dress at the Georgetown RTR store and immediately fell in love! This dress was so different than your typical prom dress, the neckline was low without being too revealing, the colors were incredible (like a Claude Monet painting), it was very flattering, and the high/low skirt made it super unique! I HIGHLY recommend it!!!

This dress was PERFECTION! Le Cirque theme so I wanted color color color. A show stopper!
This dress is beyond gorgeous. The details are incredible, the fit is perfect and it's a high end designer so you know it's very well made. I usually fall somewhere between a size 0 and 2 so I ordered both. The zero fit but a little snug in the ribs so I went with the 2 to be comfortable. Just had to add some inserts in the bust area, the kind that stick & it was all I needed. I loved the color, the shimmer threading throughout, the detail in the lining of the train and the way it flowed and lifted when I walked. So many compliments!

Party in the front business in the back
The dress is truly gorgeous and I felt like a queen in it. I was worried wearing it to a wedding that it would be too much dress but with it being short in the front and long in the back it was the perfect amount of elegance, class and fierce. I'm 5'4" but with 4.5 inch heels the back just brushed the ground. No need to wear a bra which is the best case scenario if you ask me. My only regret was not wearing a beautiful drop necklace with it.

Gorgeous dress fit left a lot to be desired
Wore this to my university's spring formal. Fabric is gorgeous, this brand runs pretty small but I knew that before ordering, so I ordered up 2 sizes. Low cut under arms and deep v will show your bra, underskirt is snug too so be sure to get the right under garments (spanx and bra). Unfortunately I was uncomfortable the whole night because the dress kept shifting to one side making my bra and boob nearly pop out. I still got tons of compliments but overall the fit sucked for me.

Dress of the evening!
I was told from the first person I saw, throughout the rest of the evening and even following days, that this was the best dress of the night. It fit beautifully, was comfortable and different than any other dress there. My husband wants to buy it now. I felt glamorous all night long. Way more beautiful in person than any picture. I wore the long, and with 3-4 inch heels, it fell perfectly with the floor. The 2 Reg I was going to wear would have been a little short.

This dress fits as expected, I am usually a 2 and ordered the long sine I am 5'6" and that was the cut off between long and regular. Dress fit like a glove! Super comfortable and not heavy at all. Worked great for the sorority formal event I had!

Amazing Color & Train
This gown is perfect for a formal spring event. It has a metallic undertone that makes it so glamorous! The 4R was unavailable for my dates so I chose the 4L. This gave me a beautiful train. Overall loved my first experience with RTR!

This dress dazzles! Photo does not do it justice!
I wore this dress for an awards ceremony and it was very glamorous. I received many compliments over the course of the evening. It is very low cut but I was still able to wear a regular bra with it. If you are very busty, this dress might make you feel a little exposed. I will say the only thing to be aware of is the shortness of the underskirt. I am 5'8" and had to put the overskirt over my legs when I sat down or I would have flashed people.

Best dress at the event!
Loved this dress! So fun for an afternoon affair in the spring. I normally wear a 12 in dresses, but I ordered the 14 as my second size. Good thing! I tried the 14 first and it fit like a glove! I wore a strapless bra which I fussed with the entire time trying to keep it covered under the dress. The deep plunging neckline made that challenging. The dress was shorter than I would have liked, but I still rocked it! Got endless compliments. #RTRforthewin

So fun and unique
This dress was so fun and like nothing else in the crowd. I received so many sweet compliments all night. My boyfriend said I looked like a Beyoncé video from the back with the pseudo train that would really float when I walked. The material was even more beautiful in person and had this beautiful metallic thread woven through it. I wore the 6, instead of the 4 so that the girls weren't spilling over but waist and hips and length would have fit better in the 4, however the 6 still looked great too. You can't wear a regular bra with this one because the back was so low. But I wore a backless one with no issues. There's no real stretch to the material but it did "give" and kind of support a bit.
