Stunning dress!!
This dress is tight in the hips so curvy girls beware. I had to wear the 8r because the 6r was too tight around my hips and I wouldn't have been able to sit. It was difficult to get into an suv. Unfortunately the top was loose but I chose not to wear a bra and there were no wardrobe malfunctions. The material is thick and you may get a little sweaty because of the amount of material around your legs on the bottom but all I did was raise the dress a little while I was at the table to give my legs some air. I am 5'1" and wore 5" platform heels which made the dress just touch the floor in front. No one stepped on it as I walked and if I was dancing around other people I picked up the bottom and danced with it in my hands. The color is beautiful and photographs well. The bodice has light boning but the belly area is not tight so you may need spanx. Everyone complimented the dress and loved the mermaid style. This dress was on my radar for a long time and I am so happy it was available for me to rent!! If you are thinking about renting it, do it! You'll be really happy you did!

Very flattering!
I rented this dress for a black tie fundraiser. I was really concerned about the fit of the dress. The reviews that I read differed in opinions of size and fit. I'm 5'2" on a big hair day :) . With 4 inch platform heals, the dress was the perfect length. I usually wear a size 2, but the 4 was a much better fit. I would definitely say that it runs one size small. The chest area was a little snug, but the interior strap helped it to zip up easily. I did have a small issue with the dress arriving with some wrinkles. I contacted RTR, and they were prompt and efficient in handling the issue. This dress made me feel glamorous...absolutely loved it!

I had so many people stopping me to tell me how stunning I looked in this dress!
I spent a lot of time reading reviews to make sure I ordered the right size. I typically wear a size 4 but everyone said the dress ran small and I'm glad I listened! I wore the 8L with 3.5 inch heels. The heels made the dress the perfect length with the front just barely skidding the ground. It fits snug and has no give, because I went with the larger size it was loose around my busy area. I wore this to a military graduation. When my husband and I walked into our hotel lobby we actually received an applause from hotel guests and staff because of our attire. The dress was a hit!

This dress was stunning and looked amazing. I definitely got more compliments on it than I thought.
It is very tight on your Rump. But it is flattering and very comfortable. It stays up well and I was able to move very comfortable in the dress all evening.

Truly a stunning princess dress!
The overall dress does fit small like everyone says, so size up 1 to 2 sizes. I normally wear a size 10 and I couldn't get that size over my hips but the size 12 fit... just snug. Because I had to size up however, the top was way too big (I'm a 36B-C) and I was swimming in it. I had to wear a strapless/backless bra and buy some VS fake breast inserts as well to help fill out the large gap. With that said, I absolutely loved this dress and felt amazing in it. So many people stopped me to ask me where I got the dress and gushed over the dress. The dress photographs great, is made of a very thick (and heavy) material, and is a great gun metal color. I felt truly stunning!

Love it
This dress is amazing, it fits small so make sure you get one size up. I almost didn't fit the back up but I held my breath and got the zipper pulled up and it worked. If you are curvy this dress is for you. I wear a size I but it wouldn't go pack my hips do the 10 fit perfectly. I was the MOH at a wedding and I got so many compliments.

Beautiful dress
I recommend talking to a consultant about the size you should get. I thought my size was a 6 but she told me I should get a 10 and it fit perfect! Made my curves look so good! The sweetheart neckline did not look food on my body and poked out on either side digging into my armpits. Don't plan on driving with this dress on. The front is shorter than the back and allows your shoes to be shown. This was a negative for me. Beautiful fabric and craftsmanship was amazing

The best dress I have ever worn!!
This dress was spectacular!! From the moment I put it on I didn't want to take it off. And in fact wouldn't. My husband had to make me change into my pjs :) Highly recommend renting this dress! And thanks to RTR staff for sending me this replacement overnight as the other dress I rented was delayed in shipping.

Stunning!
This dress was absolutely gorgeous. I wore it for my senior prom. It fit like a glove and sparkled in the light beautifully! I received many compliments throughout the night. It is very snug in the waist area compared to the bust area, I ended up slipping a strapless bra in. One thing I did not realize until after the night was over is that there is a separate bra-like back other than the zipper. Overall, highly recommend and would definitely rent again!

Loved this dress. The length was perfect. The size fit slightly awkwardly on me, but only because I have an extreme pear shape, and it wasn't noticeable. The gown was beautifully made. 10/10 would recommend.

Waaaaaay too short
This dress was about 5" too short for me, so I didn't wear it. The busy was also very very small- probably would have needed to size up if I wanted to be comfortable. Beautiful dress tho.

Only for very thin
The size 2 was too small and the 4 too big so neither worked. I am 5'5" 115lbs so I can only guess this is for very thin type. I have a little bit of a pear shape but not exaggerated at all.

Everything went absolutely amazing!
The dress fit absolutely true to size! I'm very small everywhere so I was so pleased that everything fit perfectly. Nobody at my prom had a dress similar to it and I felt great in it. I didn't even have to wear heels which made it even better! I absolutely loved loved loved this dress!

I wore this for my sorority formal and everyone was complimenting my dress all night!
The dress ran true to size for me. I am rather large chested and have a smaller butt. If my butt was any bigger I would have to have sized up. My only con is that my boobs were almost popping out the whole night. I feel like the top wasn't sturdy enough to hold them in place but I couldn't wear a strapless bra because the back of the dress is just a little bit too low. I am also 5'3" and the dress hit the ground without heels. Overall I love this dress and highly recommend this dress to anyone looking at it. It will make you look and feel beautiful and everyone will ask you where you got it!

Super cute and very elegant. A little hard to put on but fit very well.
There's structure in the dress, so you don't have to worry about whether your having a fat day or a skinny day because it's like a mini corset in there. I thought it was beautiful. Super classy and very stylish. Definitely would recommend.

runs REALLY small
This dress was my favorite of the 3 I chose and I knew it ran small, but I didn't know it ran THAT small. I had to leave the dress at the store and swap it out. BEAUTIFUL dress and I should've ordered one size it. It's designed to be very fitted and sexy. Definitely recommend, but order up. I ordered a 0R. Additionally the length was a little short for me, I'm 5'3" and had 4.5" heels on to give you a reference.

Gorgeous!!!!!!!
I wore this for a charity auction and it did not disappoint. I sparkled all night. I wore a stick on bra because of the back V. It stayed put because of the boning in the body - which was restrictive. A bit hard to boggie hard in this dress. The chest was bigger on me but I think because I have a small chest, so the push-up bra worked wonders. The bra did show out the side sometimes (as you can see in the pic). All in all, you would not be disappointed if you wear this dress ...it's a showstopper!

This dress couldn't have been ANY better!!
I am absolutely in love with this gown! I rented it for my senior prom and per previous reviews decided to size up and ended up not even needing it. The 2R was the perfect length and size. In a sea full of bedazzled mermaids and slip dresses I definitely stood out in this stunning gunmetal gray gown. It photographed amazingly, and thanks to the corseted bodice my figure was accentuated beautifully! #waistsnatched The only con would have to be that the fabric did not steam very well. It looked like someone before had attempted to iron the fabric which created creases that would not come out. Besides this minor detail, I couldn't be any happier. Thank you Rent the Runway for helping to make my senior prom one to remember<3

Perfect hourglass dress!
First off - I originally ordered a 6R & 8R... then read a review on a VERY similar body type of mine and they had rented a 10R... slight freak out knowing that this dress runs a lot smaller than your original size, I called and got my size 6R changed to a 10R very quickly and smoothly! Fantastic customer service. Aside from that - I typically do wear a size 6 but I went with the 10R and so happy I did! The bust was a little tight and squished just a little but the rest of dress was perfect. You want this to fit like a glove to show off your hourglass figure! There is absolutely no stretch, none at all. No matter how much you wish. So make sure you give yourself a tad bit of wiggle room with the sizing. If your unsure about a size - go the next size up. You'll turn heads, get asked where you got the dress and feel amazing all night!

Hands down the most gorgeous dress I've ever worn. I got compliments all night long!
I wore this dress to my boyfriend's optometry school formal, and after weeks of dieting and exercise to fit into it, it was absolutely the dress of my dreams. A dress with a train is bound to make you feel like a princess, and after I got used to the extra fabric at the bottom (I did have to carry the hem a little all night to keep it from getting underfoot), I had no complaints. I'm more, shall we say, amply endowed in the rear, and this dress hugged all of my curves without looking ridiculous. I only wish I could keep it forever! 12/10 would recommend to make your night as special as mine was!

Felt like a million bucks at a fraction of the price!
Although the 4L "fit" it was a little restrictive in the hips/tush so I wore the 6L because I knew it would be more comfortable to dance in. I don't have a curvy figure but this dress gave me shape! Loved it... felt a little like Barbie

Tiny
I should have heeded the warnings from others that said this dress runs small; I have worn other dresses by this designer and fit into a 12 without major incident but even the 14 was unwearable in this style. The dress is gorgeous in person but unfortunately the size constraints won out and I had to get a replacement.

Everybody's jaw would dropped when they would see me in this dress!!
OBSESSED WITH THIS DRESS. You literally feel like a princess so in love with it. Everybody kept complimenting me all night! The fit is very very small. I am 5'1 and 105 pounds and petite. Although the 2R didn't look tight and everybody said it looked like it fit great, It was EXTREMELY SMALL. It barely fit. I almost debated in asking rent the runway to over night me the 4R. Definitely should have gotten a 2R and 4R. I didn't even try on the 0R. The 2R fits like a XS XS. I should have listened to the other reviews about sizing up! You definitely should rent this dress if you want to feel sexy and elegant. Wore it to my boyfriends law school barristers ball.

Stunning doesn't even begin to describe it.
I am 5'11" and usually wear a size 6. I ended up having to rent the 10L after my original selections for the 6L and 8L were unavailable. I was nervous it would be too baggy, but ended up fitting great. I have larger breasts, 36D, and although the hips and waist weren't totally snug it was easier to sit down in for dinner. I did have to pull it up a few times throughout the evening, but dancing and movement in a strapless dress will do that. This fabric is thick and the dress does not have any stretch or give!! I would absolutely recommend sizing up (especially if you have a larger chest). Overall though, I did not want to send it back. The cut, color, and quality was beyond all expectation. This was my first time using RTR and have fallen in love. The ordering, shipping, and return process was so simple, and customer service was top notch. I will definitely be a returning renter!

SO beautiful!
I chose this dress for prom, and I'm so glad I decided to wear it. It's not your average looking prom dress, which really made me stand out from the rest of the girls in my group! It really shapes your body and dos a great job of accentuating your curves. This dress was perfect for such a special night.
