Gorgeous fit but too long for 5'1"

Gorgeous dress... the only issue I had was that it's too long for my 5'1" self. Super high Heels wouldn't be tall enough. Such a beautiful dress. I wish I could've pulled it off.

Great Dress, Lots of Compliments

I liked the dress. I got so many compliments on it, but I wasn't personally in love with it. The arms were a bit large, I assume to accommodate to the fabric that does not give. The color was very pretty and the dress is long. It's one of the few dresses that cater to a woman with height.

I felt like a Million bucks in this dress!

I absolutely loved this dress! This was my backup because I wasn't sure how it would look on but it was my favorite of the two and the one I wore to the black tie optional wedding. It was true to size, and I was able to walk, sit and dance all evening. There's no stretch to the fabric but I didn't find it to be too tight in any area and it's long so wear heels. I received so many compliments and felt like a million bucks! It was my first RTR experience and it was so easy, I'll definitely do this again!

Didn't wear

The dress fits like a glove! However, it hugs in all the wrong spots. It's so fitted that although you can move and dance, everyone will know if you're bloated, or something similar. Also, can't fit a bra in the dress and it just pancakes you up top. These are all the reasons I didn't go with the dress. Beautiful detailing though and obviously well made. Bummed it just didn't fit quite right.

A woman said that I had the best dress at the gala

The moment I saw it, I wanted it. I wore a standard nude bra. Strangers complimented me. I felt like a million bucks. Super comfy. No brainer. Rent it. All I wear is rtr so please find more of my rentals at www.instagram.com/carolwongnyc I love rent the runway. Life changing.

Omg this dress is amazing ; size 14L review

I'm a straight (not 14W) size 14 at 5'9 before heels. This dress was absolutely perfect in a size 16 Long. Arms are generously sized. I could easily fit my somewhat muscular/chubby arms through. Fit Georgia's through hips (43" at high hip to 45 at fullest part of hip/bum) and waist (43.5" high waist, 45.5 at low waist). Love the detailing, colors, and flattering fit. Look ma, no Spanx! Note: if you are larger in the bust than a size D, this is NOT THE DRESS. I'm technically a D, but In dresses I fit more like a C. Works best on wider chest/shoulders. Was able to go bra-less because there are built in cups. If you want more support, get a backless , slim, stick on cup. Pair with Sachin & Babi Accessories Purple Fleur Dusk Earrings for a killer look.

This is an absolutely gorgeous dress but it runs small. I wear an 8 or 10 & this 10 was TOO small:(

I did not like this for my curvy body type. I was way too small. I easily wear an 8, sometimes a 10. I got a 10 & it was WAY too small/tight

Sophisticated stunner

I didn't wear the dress because it was a 12 and I needed the 10, but ordered it to try anyways. Still had the tags on, gorgeous. I'm 5'10 and the 12L would have let me wear my 3inch heels easily. Hangs perfectly, would be an eye catcher at any formal affair. Will try to order again in the future.

So unique and beautiful!

This dress is amazing! I wore it to a black tie event and received so many compliments. It was something out of my style comfort zone, but fit like a glove in all the right places! The only drawback was that it was about 1.5-2" too long and my heels kept getting stuck in the crochet detail (for reference I'm 5'7"). I would have ordered the R length but it wasn't available.

Loved it. Did not wear as I ordered too late

5'7" and length was right at ankles, without shoes. I have small arms and there was very little room for any forgiveness on that. And bodice was tight with no give. But very pretty. Just size up if you want comfort. I would have worn had the occasion not already passed.

This dress is gorgeous! I received many compliments. I wore this to my company holiday party.

This dress is well lined. Shapewear is easy to use as no lines show through. This dress does not have any stretch, but I found it was still comfortable to sit and have dinner followed by dancing. Without shoes, it touches the floor. I am 5’5”, 150 pounds. I did not wear a bra with this. It was not necessary. For reference, I am a 36B. I would wear this dress again! Such a great alternative to the LBD.

Beautiful, one-of-kind ball gown!

I received compliments all night from friends and strangers alike! Gorgeous dress, so beautifully made - felt like a Queen all evening! So unique - definitely no other dresses like it. The material does not give, so not the most comfortable for 6 hours, but totally worth it. True to size and fabulous.

All of it.

This. Dress. Let me tell you, the fit on this dress is perfection. The length, material, and cut are impeccable. ALSO!! I am a 38 D and didn't have to wear a bra and didn't feel like my chest was saggy or at risk of slipping out-- WHICH IS A MIRACLE. This dress is the perfect combination of color, class, and sex appeal. If it were acceptable I'd wear this dress to every. single. event. in my life. Rent this bad boy and you won't be sorry.

Show stopping dress!!

This dress was a DREAM. I didn't want to return it because I love it so much. It is so detailed and unique and beautiful. I got compliments ALL night. #FitNotes: It does run small so be sure to order a larger size for your backup size. I usually wear a size 14 and the 16R fit perfectly. There is no stretch but I was comfortable all night. It is also a little long, but I am 5'3" and the dress was on the ground but not overly long. I wore heels and the length was great. I did wear Spanx since the dress is fitted around the waist. The top does have a built in padding so you may not need to wear a bra but I wore a backless bra for a little support. If you are very busty (larger than a size D), this may not be the best dress. All this to say, the dress is beautiful and I would absolutely rent it again! #blacktie #formaldress #beautifulgown

Eye-catching red!

This dress was very true-to-size. The biggest selling piece for me was that I did not have to wear a bra. The only other dress in which that's been the case was my wedding dress. I couldn't believe it. It would be difficult to find a bra that would go with this dress due to the unique cut of the bust and shoulders. Definitely enough support to get through the night.

Couldn't wear

Beautifully made and lined with bra. My boobs rocked! Exceptional colors. However, I ordered the same size as a women who left a positive review with my exact measurements. But, I lift weights and my arms and back were too broad to zip up the dress. It had absolutely no forgiveness there.

Most compliments EVER! Stunning.

Black tie stunner! Never in my life (except wedding) Have I had this many compliments on a gown. The colors are a wine w/ embroidered flowers with light pink, fuchsia, and a hint of a purple lilac. The lace detailing is the bright red you see in pictures it is absolutely stunning with almost an Asian or Indian flair to it. I went w/ that feeling wearing red & gold encrusted sparking chandelier earrings & red/pink makeup accents. I ordered the 0R & 2R. At 5'2" I needed platform (3"?) w/ 4-5"heels unseen under dress from forever 21. It's a $1000 dress and it looks like a movie star should be wearing it at the Academy Awards!!! I wore the size 0R: only con was arms a bit tight in 0 but was still comfortable. Dress form fitted & very flattering. Had bra pads inside dress so did not wear a bra. I did not need spanx but u could wear if u wanted to. Size 2R: The size 2R arms looser but was too loose for me in chest (34B) padded sticky bra could have fixed & too loose in area above waist & below chest. I wish I could go to an event out of town & wear this dress again!! Stunner.

I would 100% have bought this if I could. ABSOLUTE CROWD STUNNER.

Everyone and their mom complimented me in the dress! Felt like a million bucks. And the. Some! It hugged everywhere exactly perfectly without being too tight, or uncomfortable. Fabric was sturdy but had slight stretch allowing I think for it to be flattering on many individuals. I didn't need to wear a bra with it and the neckline was still flawless. I didn't feel like anyone could peep no matter how I turned or moved which helped me be comfortable. Dress is slightly stiff so it would be difficult if there was a lot of activity/movement required at your event. I wore it to the ballet and am so happy with my choice. I would absolutely rent this again.

Lovely dress for a different look

I say it runs small only because the 14 wasn't too large on me. They didn't have my regular size in stock and sometimes I need to go up depending on the designer. As a B cup, I could get this to work for me.

I'm 5'3" I wore 3 inch wedges. Good length. I usually wear a size 10 but the 12 fit me wonderfully. RENT THIS DRESS

Believe the Hype!

I use RTR occasionally, but this is my first review. This dress is SO beautiful, that I feel as if I would be doing a disservice if I didn't write a review. This dress is gorgeous. I received complements all night long, and 4 days later, I'm still getting compliments. The fit is perfect. I'm a 34D and didn't need to wear a bra with this dress. My "problem" area is my mid-section, but the design of this dress + Spanx had a way of providing me with a slimming profile. You will not regret renting this dress.

This dress is even more beautiful in person. It is incredibly unique and was perfect for a formal wedding event. I am 5'5" and wore short heels and the length was perfect. I did not wear a bra but had to use two-sided tape to hold up the girls. I felt like royalty wearing this dress!

Only one at the gala like it.

Loved this gown so much. I was tired of the old black fall back position gowns and this one was such the show stopper. Ran very small. Glad I went up instead of down on my second size mostly bc I was worried about the length. Typically a size 8. A 10L would've fit better perhaps but I felt like royalty all evening. The detail is stunning. So many compliments. I stopped counting! This is a gown I wish lived in my closet so I could look at it every day.

Like Sexy Frida Kahlo

This dress is so incredibly beautiful, and was perfect for a beach wedding I attended in Mexico. Details; I'm 5'7", 170lbs, 36D. I wore this with no bra (it has cups built in) no spanx, and 4 inch heels. I loved wearing this beautiful gown, and received so many compliments! The detailing on it is unreal, and it seemed brand new, like I was the first person who ever wore it.

This is a show stopper!

I rented for my niece's wedding. I knew I would be a bit overdressed but I had lost some weight and wanted to show it off a bit. This dress did just that! It is gorgeous and flattering. People not only said it was a beautiful dress, but that it looked good on my body type. The hips fit great, and I am pretty hippy. I had to get help to get the middle of the back zipped up, but it went. The dress is comfortable enough to dance and sit. Order this one!
