Red carpet ready.
I felt like a star in this dress and received compliments all night that I looked like a celebrity. The dress is true to size and does give some with wear. It is a bit bulky at the bottom as there is tulle under the skirt.

Loved this dress. Color was deep navy looked great great against the sea of Black.
Very true to size - do not size down or up. I'm 5'4" and the length was perfect with 3 inch heels.

Beautiful gown- lots of compliments! Perfect for the occasion!
Fit was perfect- I didn't even need to wear a bra or control top! I felt secure the entire evening- fitted waist and mermaid fit to showcase your curves. It was a little long for me but wasn't a setback I feel only a seamstress would have really noticed! Danced, ate, and moved freely without a care!

This gown was sent to me as a back-up for my corporate black tie gala.
This is a beautiful gown and one I would consider renting again if a 12 were available. Unfortunately the 10 was too tight in the hips for me to wear.

Beautiful dress!
My first RTR experience was fantastic! I wore this dress to a Debutante Ball and received compliments the entire night. The back of the dress has a slight train and the color was gorgeous. I'm about 6 feet tall and wore the dress with flats, which worked great for me. I'm usually a 4 L, but the dress was a little snug, as it is a mermaid fit. I ended up wearing the 6 L and it fit like a glove! I would highly recommend this dress!

I wore this dress for a black tie New Year's Eve party. The dress was so beautiful!
This dress was amazing! I originally ordered the 4R, but I could zip it all the way due to my bustline. The dress was very comfortable all night, moved great to dance in, and looked simply stunning! I wore 3 inch heels and used a little wardrobe tape in the front of the dress.

Hard to dance in perhaps and has to be picked up when walking up stairs. Perfect classic dress for a winter wedding in the NYC! - Gabrielle

Elegant.
Usually wear a size 2 but went with the 4 so I had room for a strapless bra. The dress was incredibly heavy and uncomfortable to wear, but looked gorgeous.

NYX Masquerade Ball
The dress was an almost perfect fit. I am a B cup it is more of a C cup. I did not wear a bra which would have helped however, the dress such a perfect fit in all the other areas, I did not feel the need to try to emphasize the boobs, Strapless dresses should fit snug or you will be tugging it up all night, especially if you like to dance.I danced the night away without any issues. As you can see from the photos my sister and I both rented dresses from RTR. I will definitely utilize the services again. I have several functions coming up where I will be styling RTR!

Good for the hourglass shape, be careful with hips.
This fit wonderfully - except for the fact that I had to wear a padded swimsuit top underneath to keep the bust up (and I'm a 32G). It looks utterly stunning and is a knockout entrance gown. For anyone with a true hourglass measurement set, do be careful with the hip area, it was tight and I did have to pull it up in order to sit down without stressing the seams. Absolutely LOVE the fabric, it is not the crunchy, noisy taffeta you'd think it is. Well structured and with a bit of steaming, it was fantastic. Do be wary of the train - the fabric is not super strong. Make sure to either keep careful watch of the train while dancing or hold it up, if it stepped on with the right weight, it will tear.

Stunning gown that gave me curves!!
This absolutely beautiful gown is a deep navy blue color. It's dark enough that the details of the gown's craftmanship don't photograph well, but they're quite visible in person. The material had a lovely sheen, but was not "shiny." (It reminded me of a silk shantung.) The gown is well built with internal boning and extra support, which for me meant that no bra was needed. Even without a bra, it stayed up all night with no problem. Not once did I find myself tugging on the my strapless dress. I'm built like a rectangle - very straight up and down - but this gown gave the illusion of curves. It was a little loose through the hips and snug through the bust. However, the next size up (12L) was huge through the hips, so I went with the 10L. As to length, I would have liked to have worn heels, but the dress was not long enough (I didn't want my shoes to be visible), so I stuck with flats. (In hindsight, it was awesome to wear flats as I was standing, walking, or dancing all night.) I got tons of compliments from both friends and strangers, and my husband thought that I looked gorgeous. You can't ask for better than that! Thanks RTR! (Side note: I also rented the necklace and earrings from RTR and that worked out great as well!)

The train was often stepped on and sitting in the dress was a challenge.

The dress!
This dress is absolutely beautiful and fit perfectly. I received continuous comments all night on it. My shoes kept getting stuck on the inside lining, which made it hard to walk up and down stairs, but that was the only drawback, other than people stepping on the dress because of the fullness at the bottom. It was hard to navigate in a crowded room, so I would not recommend it for an event where you will be in a room packed with people. But I have to reiterate, this dress is gorgeous and fit like a glove. I would usually be a size 0, but the dress was not available in a 0 long, so I got the 2L and it was perfect. I am extremely happy with Rent the Runway's service and will plan to rent all of my formal dresses in the future as well as enrolling in the monthly rental program. Their selection has become so extensive, they seem to have everything I would ever need. I love this company!

SUPER SMALL! I didn't wear either 6 or the 8
A BEAUTIFUL GOWN..However, I normally wear a 6 in gowns, as long as there are no sleeves, but this sucker came and I couldn't even zip it up past my waist, don't even ASK about the 6!! My upper body is larger than most females due to lifting and body building, but I was shocked at how small this gown ran, and there is absolutely NO GIVE AT ALL in this dress. Make sure you size up (1 to 2 sizes even) if you lift, it's designed for the smaller, less muscular physiques, most definitely.

Gorgeous dress, beautiful fabric, amazing silhouette
This dress was absolutely stunning. The fabric is almost like peau de soie. The color blue is elegant and flattering. The fit and flare shape was extremely flattering. I got so many compliments on this dress. The event photographer asked to take a picture because of the dress. I wore this to a very formal gala and it was just right- I thought it was one of the prettiest dresses at the event and so did my husband.

Compliments all night.
I loved this dress. It was perfect for a black tie wedding. Train was a good length, although a few people did step on the back of my dress. Worn with 4.5 inch heels and it was maybe 1 inch still too long for my liking. Boning held up the dress well, although I had to wear a strapless bra to help fill in the bust. I normally wear size 4, but the 6 was more comfortable to breathe in. Boning also made spanx unnecessary which was also nice not having any extra bulk under there. Great rental!

This dress was beautiful! The number of compliments I received were large in number.
You feel extremely elegant in this dress. I usually wear a 4, but due to the slim fit on the legs, I wanted the ability to move a little more due to dancing. The 5R fit like a glove. I'm 5.7 1/2 and wore 2 1/2 inch heels and it was perfect! I felt beautiful!

Beautiful but not the right fit for my body
I loved the idea and when it showed up I was really excited. Fabric was lovely, not shiny, it was well structured with nice details but the cut was all wrong for me. I am thin but not especially fit , however, the dress bagged in stomach. The extra fabric was mostly in the front of the wrap come across and I could have made do though it wasn't particularly faltering. It was also a little tight through the hips when I sat down.

I thought it was a little snug but I loved the gown and felt beautiful in it. I would definitely use rent the runway again. I live the idea and love not having a closet full of gowns I will prob never wear again. It came on time and was super easy to return.

Felt like a movie star at the oscars!!
Rent this. Immediately. This was my backup gown and I ended up wearing it. Fit my bust and ribs like it was made for me (it's more of a corset fit, so it can make it difficult to take a deep breath, FYI). I NEVER feel secure in strapless dresses because I'm slim but have a NATURAL 32DD chest, but this was snug as a bug. I needed no undergarments with this, besides underwear, which was so nice! It was a little roomy in the hip area, which is needed so you can sit down comfortably. Tons and tons of compliments. Strangers stopped me in my tracks to say how elegant and stunning this gown was. The fabric is thick and very high quality. I'm 5'7" and got the 0 regular, but I wore flats and it was the PERFECT length

Too Small!
I ordered this dress in my size, an 8. I was not able to fit in the 8 or the 10. I was pretty heartbroken. However, a stylist saved the day. I ordered a complete different dress and had it delivered the day of my event. I'm an hourglass shaped athlete. If you are a similar body type, I'd order two sizes up! Save yourself the heartache and panic!

This dress was stunning.
I was very nervous about renting for the first time, but I was beyond thrilled with the results. The service and dress were fantastic. As a girl of small stature, I was nervous about the length, but it wasn't too long at all. The fit was very true to size. The dress was comfy, elegant, and easy to dance in.

It fit perfectly and I received so many compliments on it.
It fits like a glove. I am 5'8'' so the Long was needed. The regular length would have hit at my ankles. It is very fitted on top so I could not wear a bra under. But I loved how it fit! I wear a 4 in most clothing and the 4 did fit for me.

This dress is impeccable, even better live than it is in photographs. I am now looking to buy it.
I cannot say enough about this dress. I wore it for our annual "ladyfriend Oscar party". The color is a fantastic rich blue, but would never be mistaken for black. The detail on the bodice is spectacular, and the mermaid architecture floats across the floor. My friends literally gasped when they first laid eyes upon me. I now know that this silhouette is meant for my figure - small but curvy. If you are looking to stand out for all the right reasons - search no more. And by the way, as we were watching the Oscars, the woman responsible for carrying the Oscar envelopes was wearing THIS DRESS. It is a true red carpet masterpiece.

I loved having such a beautiful dress to wear to a military function.
This dress was the perfect compliment to my husband's uniform. I felt beautiful in this dress, as it fit very well and accentuated my curves instead of making them worse! My hips are pretty wide, so it was a little snug through my hips, but I was afraid to go up a size in case it was too big up top. I received MANY compliments, and felt more beautiful in this dress than I have in a while! Thank you RTR!!

This was my back-up for my engagement shoot, and was so pleased! Flattering & photographs well.
I'm between sizes right now, but didn't want to risk it with the 10 after the reviews said it fits a bit tight. The 12L wasn't too tight, and I did have to wear a strapless bra to keep the dress up. Length was perfect with 3 inch heels.

A gorgeous black tie wedding
I got this in my size and a size up. Both were very tight on my hips. I have an hour glass figure, but I would describe myself more as "athletic" than "curvy". Went with my size as it fit everywhere else. I also got a long and still couldn't wear heels. I feel this kind of dress should be close to the floor. I wouldn't recommend this dress for tall women. All and all this is a gorgeous dress, but I am glad it was just a rental and I can give it back :).

I am closer to 34 DD and I should've ordered a 12 for my bust. I am 5'1 and the length of the regular was perfect for a 2 inch heel!

I felt elegant and beautiful and for the first time in my life I didn't mind standing out.
It definitely runs small. If you have bigger thighs or a butt, definitely go up a dress size or two. I range between a 4 and a 6 and thought the 8 was going to rip open when I sat down. If you're tall get the L. I was wearing small heels and they were showing under the dress. I was a little taken back by the fabric when I received it. It's not as shiny as it looks in the pictures. It's a heavy corded fabric with more of a matte finish. But it was still gorgeous and not too heavy when wearing it. It not being shiny actually helped hold in and hide my bulgy areas. Long story short, I felt amazing. I felt so classy and elegant and skinny! I got so many compliments and I did not want to send it back. This dress is AMAZING!

Receiving the dress ready to go was awesome! The return process was super easy!
My boyfriend and I were on vacation in New York City the weekend before the submarine birthday ball, so I got the chance to visit the store in person and make sure I was getting the right size. The experience was awesome. It was easy and fun!! While I was there we tried on a lot of things found exactly what I wanted. Then the assistant ordered it for me right there in the shop making sure I got the best price. A week later my dresses arrived at the door ready to use! I pulled them right out of the box and danced the night away! The dress itself was so stunning! It for like a glove and I felt so beautiful and elegant. I got compliments all night long especially with the little train in the back. I had random strangers come up to me to compliment the dress as well! The color was fabulous and matched my dates uniform so well. Overall the experience and the dress was spot on and I will definitely be using rent the runway again!!
