I was a bridesmaid in my friends wedding and got tons of compliments all night!
The dress hit the floor perfectly so I could wear flats or small heels and fit really well everywhere, just a little big on the chest and you can't wear a bra with it unless you get a special one. The back of the dress is gorgeous and flows out just under the butt so it shows off all of your curves!

Stunning Favorite
Stunning. I love the ribbing in the front and the shape of the whole top of the dress. I loved the color. I loved the fabric. Wore this to a formal christmas party. It was fun to dance in too!

Pretty in lace!
I wanted to wear this for my graduation, but ended up choosing a different dress. However, this was just a stunning dress and I couldn't NOT wear it. I took it out for a run at this unforgettably amazing restaurant and it was just beautiful. The ribbing is form fitting so it is a bit tight. And I'd say the dress overall runs just a little smaller than true fit, but I think if you aren't as busty it would be true to fit. Don't have doubts about this gorgeous dress.

Understated dress that made a statement!
I had a few choices for a wedding and I decided to go with this beautiful lace gown. The fit was perfect. It was lined so it fell very nice (no need for spanx) I had numerous compliments!

It was a Roaring 20's event and it fit the theme perfectly.
I am between a size 10 and 12. The 10 was too tight and the 12 was a little big, but I was comfortable. I'm big up top, so that was my biggest concern. I am 5'5" and weigh 175. The color is very matted, but I received lots of compliments.

Loved the open back!
I am 5'6 and wore very tall black heels. The dress hit the ground in a beautiful way. It swayed when I walked. I would never have thought to they this style, but it was sent as a replacement and I absolutely loved it. Wore to a black tie wedding and received numerous complements. I have a size A chest and if time would have permitted, I would have worn some type of cup padding, as it had some extra fabric I couldn't fill at the top!

I got so many compliments on this dress! It was comfortable, elegant, and I could still dance in it!
I loved the beautiful lace. The color is slightly more muted, almost a mauvish tone, than in the picture.

I felt amazing and it looked great with the other bridesmaids, many of them also did RTR.
A little loose on top but fitted throughout midsection and below. Long on my 5'2" frame but worked perfect with 3-4" heels.

Beautiful lace, runs large
I was very excited to finally find a Monique Lhullier gown for an event that was a fit and flare/mermaid type dress. However, both the sizes I got were too large. Normally this designer's dresses run small, so I usually go for a size larger, but this dress has stretchier material and has more give. It didn't hug my curves the way the other dresses by this designer looks on me. It is beautiful though, so I would recommend going either with your actual size or a size smaller.

The dress was perfect. It wasn't sparkly (which I appreciate), so classy, and fit so well. LOVE.
I could tell the dress was a little worn, but it still fit and looked great. It was exactly what I wanted.

Loved the dress and everything about it. Only problem I had was that I am not well endowed up top so had to use extra fillers so the top didn't sag! Lol other than that o loved everything about it and received compliments all night!

I was the maid of honor in my best friends wedding. I got compliments throughout the night on it.
I usually wear a 10, I ordered and 8 and 10. They both fit great, but I ended up going with the 10 just for a slightly looser fit. Can't wear a bra with it, so I had to use the sticky bra cups. I wore 3 inch heels for the wedding and 1 1/2 inch heels for the reception and they both worked great for the length. It's a very flattering dress and I would definitely recommend it.

So many compliments!
I wore this dress for my brother's wedding. The bride let us choose any style of dress as long as it was gold. The dress was beautiful! The color is more of a tan but it didn't clash with the other gold dresses. I loved the lace material and how it was really forgiving. I'm a curvery gal who's had 2 babies so I'm glad I had a bigger size that I felt comfortable in. The top was a little large so I safety pinned the back and it worked well. I ended up buying a bra with sticky pads as I needed a little extra support. Overall the dress was gorgeous and I loved it.

Just a touch too long
The dress was truly exquisite- however I should have ordered the 12R! But with no time left before my event, I made the best of it and with 4-inch heels, it was fine. I think I have my shoes off in this picture! It fit perfectly otherwise and if you're looking for a simple, yet classic way to make an entrance, this gown is for you.

Great customer service! Tons of compliments!
This dress was sent over night to me after I did not like the fit of my original dress- customer service was amazing!! I am 4"11 and normally size 8 in pants but I wear 12 in formal dresses because I have a large rib cage area. The 12 fit but was stretched out in the bust area and was a tad to tight so I decided to try the 14 and glad I did- I had breathing room and the top area fit me better. I would def size up if you are larger in the rib cage area and I had to temporary hem because it was way to long. I got tons of complements on the dress- I will def RTR again!

I'm usually an 8, but I should have got a 10. Dress was a little tight, but I made it work. I got a lot of compliments, very classy and vintage look. I would rent this dress again!

I am a 10 normally but the 10R ran small because of my bottom. The 12R fit my hips but the top part was a little too big.

Comfortable, simple, and classy!
LOVED THIS DRESS. It fit me in the chest, arms, shoulders/back, waist, but it was a tad too long for my 5' 2" self (which I had feared). I wore 3" heels and made it work but it could've been 2 inches shorter to be perfect. I didn't need to wear a bra, which was a huge plus! I attended a formal military Christmas party where guests were wearing both short and long formal dresses and I did not feel over or under dressed. A very classy, comfortable, and beautiful dress! I tanned the week leading up to event and I am very thankful I did as it is true to the nude color. Would recommend to anyone and would wear again!

Beautiful dress that I rented through Unlimited.
Did not end up wearing this though because it was too short. I'm 5'6 135lbs and with no shoes on this dress was still an inch from the ground, so with heels would have been way too short. I think a long would have fit perfectly!

Perfect, easy gown
This dress was incredibly flattering, and fit perfectly. I'm 5'4" and about 120lbs. I didn't have to wear a bra with it and got tons of compliments all night. The length was perfect and because of the high neckline, I didn't need a necklace. If you rent this, definitely get a purse that won't catch on the fabric!

Tons of compliments on the dress, color worked great with vintage style wedding.
I wore this dress for my son's wedding. I received many compliments. The fit was true to size, I wore a 6L with 2 1/2 heels. First ordered the 8L because of the reviews suggested to size up, and it was too big, so contacted customer service and they sent the 6L out immediately.

Gorgeous dress
Perfect for the black tie optional wedding I attended. This dress made me feel like the best dressed in the room (besides the bride of course). There were three layers to the dress and because it was so hot or maybe because it was a little big the layer closest to me continued to wrinkle at an odd place at my hips. I'm 5'2" and with a decent heel on didn't have an issue with the length and danced just fine. The dress name might trick you into thinking there is bling or sparkle, but there isn't. It is a very classy, neutral dress and is very well made. What makes it even better is the amazing customer service I received from Rent The Runway when I remembered that I forwarded my mail and wanted to change the name on the package. I sent an email and a response email with the problem solved was sent back to me in minutes. Beyond impressed. I can't wait to have another event to order something else!

Lovely
This is a truly beautiful and classy dress. The open back gave it the perfect touch of sexiness. The lace has a weight to the bottom that gives a good-quality feel to it, and it flows beautifully as you walk. I am 5'7" 125lbs 32A and usually wear a size 2 dress. I wore the 2L with 3" heels and it was still an inch or two too long for my liking. My heels caught on the lace at the bottom when dancing, so I had to hold it up a little in order to not fall in my face.. As other reviews have noted, the top was loose and seemed to be a little stretched out but it was definitely still wearable. I wore an adhesive bra with this dress, which worked well until I worked up a little sweat. That plus the humidity had me worried that the bra cups would fall right off. Overall I thought this dress was gorgeous and photographed well. I received many compliments throughout the night. I gave this dress four out of five stars because it was a little bit higher maintenance than I would have liked and the lace at the top was stretched out.

It was awesome when everyone would tell me "I love your dress, I've been looking at it all night!"
The 4L was perfect length with 3 inch heels (being 5'8") and the 4 was even a little big but that's because I didn't realize I was a 2 to start with. I got a lot of compliments on it all night and it was very different than anything anyone else had which I like a lot! Everything was smooth with shipping. Some reviews said they had pulls in the lace but both of my sizes were in pretty good condition, I didn't notice anything wrong with them. I was a little afraid of sweating in the short sleeves being summer but the part of the dress under the arm comes down far enough that I didn't have any issues. I would rent this dress again!

Great dress for West Coast Journalism Emmy awards.
I'm 5'8" and glad I got the long. My heels were only 2.5" and the dress barely skimmed the ground and showed the tips of the shoes. The fit was pretty much true to size, I had some extra room in the bust and arm areas. The 4L would have fit better it weren't for my large rib cage. I'm 5'8" with an athletic figure, around 148#. Overall, beautiful dress that was perfect for the occasion.

Gorgeous dress! But a little stretched out.
I rented this dress for my boyfriend's private school prom. It's so classy and comfortable. The color definitely seemed darker to me than it did in the picture on RTR when I first opened it, but in daylight it looks more gold. I am typically a size 4 in strapless dresses but in this and another Monique Lhuillier dress I've worn, the 2 fit perfectly. I loved the dress and I would rent it again but the clasps in the upper back part of the dress were loose and kept coming undone throughout the night.

Nice dress, but not for me.
I rented this as one of my 3 unlimited options for a formal work event coming up, but will not be wearing. I usually wear 6 and the 6L was good, but the dress itself was odd and the color didn't work well with my skin tone. The nude is blurry flat and boring in person. I'm a 34b and while the dress fit perfect in the waist and hips it was baggy at the top. So perhaps with a larger bust it would work better. Also, the Long barely brushed the floor, which could be the fabric tightening after several cleanings, not sure. Overall, this one just wasn't for me!
