I walked into the event feeling so confident!
I bounce between a 4 and a 6 depending on which assets im trying to highlight. I went with the 6 so my 34 DD's would fit without being too squished. I loved the skirt!! I could feel it catch some wind when i walked and just felt like a star!

Stunning gown!
It made me feel like a queen. Definitely turned a lot of heads! It does trail, so make sure you are wary that others don't step on it.

Nonstop compliments!
Love love love! So comfortable and every person I talked to complimented me! I'm 5'1 and wore a 1.5" heel, the length was perfect. It was a liiittle snug on top wearing the 2 (34DD also not common for my height), but the 4 was big everywhere else so I went with the 2. Highly recommend!

Beautiful, dramatic dress! Great fit and well-constructed
Guys - this dress is insane. Easily one of the most stunning dresses I've ever worn. The cut is very flattering and the overlay makes for a dramatic effect especially when you're walking or dancing. I'm 5'9" and the Long was perfect with heels. Otherwise it would have dragged. I'm usually a size 6 (29 jeans) / 34B and it was snug in the hips but otherwise a perfect fit. The fabric sucks you in. Construction is amazing, fabric has a bit of sheen to it but not sparkly. I got compliments all night and my husband was wowed ;) Rent this!!!!

This is such a beautiful dress. I felt so glamorus & got compliments all night!
The dress length was perfect for my 5'3 body. It had a small train but not, anything that was inconveniencing. I loved the opening in then front that showed my legs & shoes. The bust area was somewhat tight & did not require a bra. The only problem was the zipper. It was hard to zip up, even, when the dress was off. Otherwise it was very comfortable to dance in & beautiful to be in.

The dress is beautiful and made of really nice material. It is a great statement all by itself. WOW!
I am 5'7, 145 lbs. I am a 36C and a size 8 fit great. It hugged my bust and waist perfectly. However, I didnt account for the buffet at my sisters party, and it felt very snug after. Towards the end of the night I was very hot from all the dancing, since this dress brings alot of material. Very worth it for all the pics and standing, but not so much for the dancing. I paired it with silver sparkling shoes and earrings. THIS DRESS IS AMAZING!!!!

This dress is stunningly beautiful! I felt like a million dollars in it. After having weight loss surgery in November, I have lost 90 pounds. This dress showed my progress and I have never had more compliments! I will find a way to buy this beauty!!!!!

Love it!
The fit was wonderful - fit like a glove and hugged my curves. It was a bit heavier material but I liked that, it felt substantial. The cape part was so much fun, too. It made the dress unique. And I especially loved the one-shoulder part: it made the dress secure and I never had to adjust throughout the night. The only thing was the zipper -- it was really hard to get up and we had to use pliers to pull it up. But I think that has more to do with the recycled wear, and not the dress/style itself. I loved it, though.

It was a fun Christmas party!
The dress was very form fitting, but wasn't restricting in any way. It was the perfect blend of sexy and elegant. I'm pretty tall and even the long size wasn't quite long enough for both me and the heels I was wearing.

Show stopper
I received a lot of great compliments on this dress. This dress is a WOW dress. I wore it to a black tie fundraising event, and felt like a million dollars. I would definitely wear again. I am shorter so the 6R was the best length. The 8R was too long. However the 8R ran smaller than the 6R? Not sure why but it was tighter on my hips. The material is a little heavier so it might be hot for an outside summer event.

Comfortable for an evening of dancing.
I had to go a size up and the fit was perfect! I loved the high low. For someone who is 5' 4", it's hard to find a dress that fits in the length.

The cut of this dress is magical
The dress is like two in one; there is a shorter asymmetrical layer under the longer portion. It is so fun, and I received so many compliments. The materials is thick, but not too hot even on summer nights.

Gorgeous NYC Wedding....
This may have been my FAVORITE RTR dress thus far. It was SO comfortable, flattering and quite beautiful. The fit and shimmer were really lovely. I am usually a 10 and wore the 12 for this event because the part underneath was a little tight on the 10 - the 12 was a bit big in certain places but not crazy. I'd get this again in a heartbeat!

Most gorgeous dress ever!
This dress did not look good on the hanger.. was disappointed when I received it. But wore it and changed my mind.. it fits like a dream.. the tight skirt inside has no give so make sure to order the right size. I am a size 0 with a bigger butt.. it was a teeny bit tight.. but would love to wear it again.. Got many compliments too!!

This dress made me fee like a celebrity or V.I.P.!
This dress fit like a glove! I've been losing weight so I am between sizes, 12 and 14. The 12 fit perfectly. I am only 5'1'', so I wore 4.5 inch heels and it was still a tiny bit long. I attended the UNCF Masquerade Ball and it was at a Casino. Strangers were walking up to me all night telling me how much they loved the dress and how great I looked in it. I did wear a strapless bra with it. Would definitely rent again!

Beautiful Dress for Brother's Wedding!
This dress was gorgeous! It fit so perfectly, the train wasn't too long, held it at times to dance, but not a problem at all! Pictures come out great in this dress because of the metallic sparkles! Definitely recommend :)

Fit perfectly and was very comfortable! The only downside was that I had to pin the under skirt because it was hitting me right at my knees because I'm so short but it worked very well! I wore 4 inch platform stilettos.

Great dress for a black tie wedding!
I loved the dress! It was my first RTR dress and now I recommend the site yo everyone. I got the 0L instead of the 0R because the latter wasn't available. I'm glad that I did because I loved that the length gave me a nice train that followed me as I walked. The bodice was fitted, so I didn't need yo wear a bra! Sitting down was fine, since it highlighted my legs because of the slit. The dress is more dark grey in person instead of black, but it has a nice sparkle in pics. I highly recommend this dress!

It was a great dress, well made. The top was just a bit tighter and made it hard to breath.
Little tight, but glad it showed off my baby bump.

I wore this dress to a ball in mid-June, so it was pretty hot. It is still "black tie" appropriate, but felt like a short dress when I was dancing!

All the twirls!
Technically, I fit into the 4L, but the 6L was more comfortable and the pleats laid better at the hips. I have more hips than boobs, and although everything fit just fine, I can see how someone with slightly more voluptuous curves might feel a little snug in the bottom. This dress was PERFECT for dancing the night away at my girlfriend's wedding that was indoor/outdoor in Toronto in June. The fabric is a bit heavy, but by no means hot. The texture in the fabric is wonderful and sparkly without dousing me in glitter all night. Compliments were constant from gals, guys and parents alike. I highly recommend this dress for any formal event where you have the freedom to be playful with your wardrobe choices.

Dress was perfect for the masquerade ball we went to. So many compliments.
The dress fit great(like a glove no stretch). It shines without being gaudy. It was perfect for the ball I went to. My only complaint was the back zipper. Had such a hard time with it--invisible zipper got stuck midway and material made it hard to reach or turn(why do they made them in the back --impossible to get dressed by yourself). On a side note, Rent the runway customer service was super helpful when I complained. I would definitely recommend.

Gorgeous dress!
This dress was as great as I had hoped! It was my first time renting from RTR, so I was really nervous about the fit. I ordered a 12R and a 10R based on reviews from others about my size. The 12R was happily way too big up top (I'm between 34DD and 36DD), but it fit great over the bottom. The 10R still gave me a little wiggle room up top, but I was comfortable in a strapless bra. The bottom skirt was a little snug but not uncomfortable. I'm about 39" around the hips. Loved the fabric, which was flattering and comfy! I'm 5'7" and wore about 1-inch heels. It didn't hit the floor, so I probably could have tried the long and worn higher heels, but it worked nice!

This dress for prom, and I was called a queen and goddess all night! This dress is a show stopper!
This dress is true to size. As someone with an hourglass figure, the waist fir perfectly, whereas the chest and hips were rather tight. In order to dance during the night, I pulled up the lining and went through the night with an amazing sense of confidence. I would suggest ordering a backup size one size up (my circumstance didn't allow me to). I love Love LOVE this dress!

Dress was perfect for the event: a semi-formal annual Chamber of Commerce dinner & I got an award!
Loved it. I usually wear a size 6 but glad i got the 8. I wore a 3 inch heel and just simple earrings. No necklace needed. Great dress to receive an award in. I felt like i was at the Oscars.

Really comfortable!
I was probably between a size 4L&6L. I ended up wearing the 6L, but had a 4L as my backup. The 4L fit my bust the best, but there was NO room for hips. The 6L was just a tad big through the bust, but allowed lots of movement and the ability to sit well for my size. Smaller bust sizes should be cautious about sizing up. I wouldn't recommend this dress if you're pear shaped. Overall the dress was really pretty, I received great compliments, and as a tall girl the length was great! I only wore a small heel, but easily could have worn a high heel and still had a long enough dress.

the flow and texture of the dress were amazing.
the inner skirt was a little snug around the hips so had to wear the larger size (6R). however, there was plenty of room in the bust.
