I wore this gown to a memorial gala fundraiser which I hosted.
The gown is absolutely beautiful and it fits like a glove. I received so many compliments on how well it fit and how gorgeous it was. It arrived in immaculate condition and I had no issues with this dress. It's one-of-a-kind and I can guarantee you will be satisfied with this stunning gown. I highly recommend this rental and if you are tall and plan to wear heels, I also recommend you opting for the LONG in your respective size.

how high are your heels?
SheilaApril 18, 2014
Hello RTR member - my heels were 4 inches.
Model LadyApril 24, 2014
Hey Sheila! If you don't mind me asking, what is your hip measurement? I'm trying to gauge the right size to get for this dress! I may need to go a size up and this dress listing doesn't mention any bust/waist/hip measurements! Thank you so much!!
SheilaApril 24, 2014
Hello Model Lady - I actually have no idea what size my hip measurement is. I can wear size 4 or 6 in some dresses. I would not have fit a size 4 in this dress. It would have been too tight. It has a fitted bodice area (especially around the waist). I would probably recommend you going up one size from your normal size just to ensure comfort. I hope this information helps a little :)
Model LadyApril 24, 2014
Thank you so much!! Will do - I always like to ask first!
AdrianaApril 29, 2014
Hey Sheila! Were you able to wear a bra or does the dress have a built in bra?
SheilaApril 29, 2014
It does not have a built in bra - but I did not need one. The fitted bodice held it together nicely :)
LindaMay 4, 2014
Did you find it heavy to dance in?
SheilaMay 5, 2014
Hi Linda, It was a little at first but after I kicked my shoes off - it was all good! Also, I did find myself holding the back part from time to time as I danced so myself or others wouldn't trip over it.
Model LadyMay 7, 2014
Hi! What type of fabric is this dress? Not satin? I have ordered 2 sizes just in case, but now freaking out that it won't be long enough for my 5'11" height. Is it stretchy? Thanks!!
KelMay 7, 2014
Just had to say you are stunning!
RTR CustomerMay 8, 2014
you look fabulous
SheilaMay 8, 2014
KEL and RTR Customer....thank you for the compliment :)
SheilaMay 8, 2014
Model Lady - I cannot recall the fabric but it was not satin nor was it stretchy. Good idea to order 2 sizes and don't freak out...I am 5'8" and I had on 4 inch heels so I think you will be fine! Good luck and don't forget to post your pics!
Model LadyMay 12, 2014
Got it. Wore it. LOVED IT! Review and pics are up! Thanks for your help!!!

Not for tall girls, but beautiful.
Didn't get to wear this. I am very tall, and the long just wasn't long enough. Beautiful and unique dress though. Probably perfect if I were 5'8". In general though, the sizing seems correct. Rent the runway issued me a credit, and I am looking forward to trying again. Love the idea of renting a gown instead of buying.

Simple elegance
I wore this gown to a black tie gala. I normally wear a size 4L, but sized up to a 6L, as the 4 was a little tight around my ribcage and I wanted to breathe. People who I have never met came across the room to compliment the dress. I was comfortable and elegant all night. This was a replacement dress, as the one I reserved was retired out because of damage and I was a little nervous that all the bunching on the back would be too over the top, but it wasn't. It was amazing. Highly recommend!!

Stylists were knowledgeable on fit and heel height options
I originally was sent a size too small and too short and rent the runway sent me the right size the next day! I was completely satisfied with the customer service and my dress was perfection. I got so many compliments and I definitely will be renting again! Btw I wore 4.5-5 inch heels

Couldn't wear it because it made me look too big.
The photo is not the same as the actual dress. The photo looks like it is half black and half white, however, there are white panels on either side that would make anyone look too wide and hippy. Customer service was very gracious with my return.

Once in a lifetime event
It's a VERY heavy dress and looks like a $10k dress. The dress looks as if it could be satin but it isn't and the tail is not just draping- there are about 5 yards of fabric e tail alone. The neckline is very high and run big on top, narrow through the hips. I was advised to get a size up so I got 10 with a 12 backup but couldn't move in the 10 (hips) and swam on top in the 12. The cut in the back is so low you can't wear a bra. Certain to turn heads, this is good for tall, big busted, small hipped ladies who will be standing all night.

Amazing gown for the red carpet. Tons of compliments!! Classic, and on trend with black & white.
This was my first time ordering. Arrived on time, easy and painless. The 8L fit better than the 6L. I am 39 1/2 in the hips. A bit snug but was standing most of the night anyway. This is NOT the dress to sit for long periods of time or if you are going to eat a big dinner. A "seen and be seen" in gown. Photographed beautifully and I got tons of compliments on the dress. Those with a smaller bust may need some padding.

Adored the simple, but elegant features of this gown.
I wore this gown to my senior prom, and everyone truly fell in love with it. From the two-toned, black and white fabric and the deep v-back, the dress was simple, but a definite statement. Nonetheless, the back of the dress added a nice touch of drama but did not take away from the simplicity of the gown. I wore three and a half inch pumps that allowed the dress to scrape the floor without it being too short or too long. I kept the accessories simple with chandelier earrings and a black clutch. Overall, this dress was beyond exceptional, and I received compliments all night. With that being said, I will be renting from RTR in the future. They have great customer service that soothed my apprehension during my first renting experience.

This dress was a bit tight in the hip area. They sent me another dress overnite.
I have to say the customer service was outstanding. I called with the problem if the dress being a bit small. Usually size ten is big on me but who knows. Clothes don't always lie. Haha. The stylist was so awesome with helping me pick a new dress in the style that I wanted. I am very curvy. If you have a booty this dress may be snug in the booty. There is absolutely no give in this dress. I am a 36 DDD and the chest area fit great. But I would have needed some kind of backless bra. The dress was snug enuf to help keep it place.wish I had the for site to order size ten. But oh well. My next dress will be just as awesome. I do have long legs for my height and barefoot the dress trailed the floor. Plenty of room for a nice pair of heels. Hope this review helps.

Just perfect!
Rented this incredible dress for prom and couldn't have been happier (I'm STILL receiving compliments on the gown even a week later)! The quality was fantastic, the style was incredible and it fit like a dream! FYI, I wore 3" heels, otherwise I could have gone with the 2R size instead of a 2L. The train/bustle is classy without being bulky or dated. The material was soft and kept its smooth look even after sitting in a limo, etc, etc. Highly recommended (the dress AND RTR!)

Gorgeous gown elongates tiny people
This dress is absolutely gorgeous. I got compliments from the dry cleaners, people on the street, people at the event, my parents. Up close, the fabric seems to be a made of a woolen texture which makes it very durable and not so easily wrinkled from sitting down. I had to practice a bit with how to sit with it (you pull it up and to the side). I wore a skinny gold metal belt with it because it was just a little too plain for me. At my height, it was trailing on the floor a bit. A 2-inch heel would be enough walk in, I wore a 3-inch because I didn't want to get it dirty. Had it pressed at the dry cleaners to give it extra poof. The first picture is the 4R & unpressed because my parents wanted to see how it looked on me. The second picture is the 2R was a bit snug, which was the fit I was looking for. 4R fit like a glove and I should've warn that instead.

Stunning show stopping dress.
Fit perfectly. Women and men alike complimented me in the dress all evening long. Several even reached out to touch it. There were a couple of draw backs. The ribbing metal on one side was out and moved against my skin and there was a string from the lining that was hanging. Otherwise, the dress was a hit.

Countless compliments... I felt like an old Hollywood starlet!
I saw this dress on RTR and didn't really think it was that great. It wasn't until I went shopping in a local department store and tried the dress on in person that I realized how spectacular this dress really is. Immediately I went online on my phone and ordered the rental dress. I was still in the fitting room! It feels magical when you put it on. Shipping was right on time! I wore this gown for my formal graduation party. It was old hollywood themed. I paired the dress with a bulky necklace and black gloves. The overall fit felt good. It was tight around my thighs, which I liked, and comfortable around my waist... I would have preferred it to be a little but tighter around my waist but I tend to have a size 0 waist, with size 2 hips and bust.. Before you rent this dress you must take in account that there is no back! So if you are chesty, you will need a special bra. I am a D cup but still ended up going bra less for my event but i still looked fine and structured. The 2 short was perfect for me with 4 inch heels. Even when the shoes came off for dancing, I never tripped on my dress! The trail is fabulous. It's grand, but so classy. I'm a small girl but by no means would I say I have a good body. This dress hid every bump and highlighted every curve. 5 stars. Omg soooo in love. RTR, thank u so much for making my night as fabulous as it could be!

Did you need/wear any type of smoothing undergarment? You talked about "bumps" but I don't see any!! You wore it well! I'm wondering about spanx hose, but worried that the waist band may be too evident. I will be wearing a 0. Your advice is much appreciated!!

Being unable to zip it is something I won't soon forget, lol. :0)
I normally wear a size 2 in gowns, sometimes a 4 depending on the designer and cut. This dress is cut so slim in the hips I could not get the 2 on. The 4 was my backup size, but it was also way too tight (which is very unusual for me). Also I am very tall & narrow and had the 4L not been too tight, it still would have been shorter than I would have wanted (I.e. would had to have worn flats). Such a shame because the gown is clearly well made and the fabric/back train is absolutely beautiful...if you do manage to find a size that fits, have a steamer or something on hand because it arrives uber wrinkled.

The beautiful and unique dresses because no one had one even similar to mine!
Worn to my senior prom and got nothing but good compliments. Overall fit was wonderful and looked beautiful in pictures and person. Only complaint would be that it was a little heavy and poofy so I ended up changing into a back up dress for the actual dance. First time user of rent the runway and I am definitely using this place again!

Old Hollywood Glamour with a Modern Spin
I am 5'6 108lb 32B and the OR fit me perfectly--like it was made for me! This dress NEEDS to be steamed right out of the bag so I went over it 4x with my Mini Steamer (probably better if you could utilize a dry cleaner for this steaming issue since the bottom tends to wrinkle a bit). Overall very happy with this selection, compliments all night and a very low back which i LOVE with a train type of material. This is perfect for black or white tie affairs, VERY different than what other girls there had and someone thought I was wearing Valentino. I would definitely rent it again but had to knock off just 1 star as it is a bit heavy/hot/traps in heat by the end of the night. Wear dangling earrings with this dress instead of a necklace...better suited for that! Loved it!

It was a beautiful wedding and I got complements on the dress all night!
It's great for small busted, tall and thin women. I'm actually 3 months pregnant and the waist line here hid my little belly bump perfectly. I added a little sweater because i was outside, on the weather, but the open back on this dress is stunning. At one point, someone asked my friend if I was the bride. It's a fantastic dress, would rent it again. I got the 2 as my other size, as i'm often a two, but I think being pregnant I really needed the 4. I couldn't really sit down in the two, it was too tight.

Pretty dress, tight in hips, material wrinkled
This is a very pretty dress. Unfortunately I was not able to wear it. I usually wear a 4 on top and 6/8 on the bottom. In order to fit it over my hips and backside I would have had to wear the 8. That meant the top was too big and gaped/proofed out around the arms. Also, the dress doesn't really accentuate your waist if you have hips that require wearing a larger size. (I wonder if a belt would help with that?) The material also looked wrinkly. I didn't try to steam it though because I did not end up wearing the dress. The dress would look better on a person who is more straight up and down. Wearing 5" heels the dress just skimmed the ground - I'm 5'3". It is a glamorous, old Hollywood, dress though. I wish I could have worn it.

Stunning Dress - So Flattering! :)
This dress is absolutely amazing - I must start by saying that. I have an athletic shaped body and generally wear a size 6. I ordered a 6L and 8L to be safe. I am 5' 8 and so the Long option was perfect with 3 inch heels. Regarding the fit, I feel it is important to emphasize that this dress fit me great but would be even better on someone with more of an hourglass figure. I am sort of square shaped in the midsection but this dress is tight by the waist and wide by the hips. Because of this, it was a bit snug on my waist so I couldnt clasp the clasp above the zipper, which ended up being alright because the zipper is very sturdy and stayed up without ever worrying me. The hips were a little wide on mine, because again, I am more square and athletic shaped. It gave me curves that I never knew I had though. There are "bones" from the tummy up to the chest area which poked me a little but I forgot all about it when I saw how beautiful it looked. I got so many compliment on this and it is extremely classy while still "mature" in the back. I absolutely loved it and it was comfortable! Wore it all night and danced in it and everything. It is definitely a heavy dress so I wouldnt wear it to anything outdoors where it might be warm - make sure its for an indoor event or youll be sweating. Other than that - good luck! Amazing dress, and order a size up to be safe :)

I wore this dress to a black tie wedding. It was definitely a head turner! I felt very couture!
If you are wearing this dress to a wedding, I would not wear it to the church. I would change into it before the reception so the dress is fresh and crisp upon entrance since it does wrinkle around the hips after you sit down. My husband and family loved this dress. I would absolutely wear it again! I am 5'7 and had to order the long so that the dress hit the floor with my heels on. I ordered a size 12 because of my "bubble butt" and it fit well. Even though it's mermaid, the peacock affect in the back covers up the bubble but so you just see your hips in the front. Very flattering! I felt amazing!

Drop Dead Gorgeous!!!! Queen of the Night!!!!!
This dress was not my first choice, but boy am I happy I chose it. Received compliments all night! Runs true to size, worn with a 4inch heel (no higher or you lose the floor length effect) . Fit like a glove, perfect on a curvy girl. Accentuated my curves, slimming in all the right places. #prom2014

Very dramatic dress
This was my back up dress for a black tie wedding in NYC, it was so beautiful on me but the other dress I chose was just a bit more sophisticated/ age appropriate. I would absolutely recommend this beautiful dress, the fabric was so substantial and the low back/ dramatic back ruffle was perfect!

how high of a heel did you wear? I'm a similar size and height and planning on renting it this next week! Love your hair!
KimberlyOctober 20, 2014
I wore a pretty tall heel (3 or 4 inches… can't remember exactly). The length was perfect on me and I'm 5'6''. Thanks! I also wore clip in hair extensions to get the extra length. Enjoy your event! This is the most spectacular gown I've ever worn!

Endless glamorous comments about the perfect "red carpet" dress at my birthday party!
Cons: Only the "long" version of the dress was available so I went with it...3 inch heels didn't quite get it off the ground (as I am 5'4") but it didn't drag much. Plus I was indoors so that helped with it not getting too dirty. I'd totally rent the same dress again! Pros: NO, I didnt' look like the model in the picture wearing the dress, but for my body type, it looked amazing. Stunning fit, even for someone who has a 36DDD sized chest, plus a little leftover baby weight in the middle. I wore some shapewear for my midsection and an adhesive bra that made the outfit complete. Gorgeous, flattering, classy, classic, stylish, definitely made me feel famous. I was so concerned about my midsection and large chest, I got the 12R size as a backup and didn't even need it. If you're my size and a little leery about it, DO IT! I hope you won't regret it :) I wore this for my murder mystery birthday party with the theme of "1950s Hollywood Glamour" hence the red carpet. My mom decorated beautifully and the dress certainly set off the night at the "Bourbon Club" that night!! Definitely get this dress!

Hassle free customer service, perfect dress, looked like a million bucks without having to spend it!
I had trouble getting the exact size I needed but customer service went above and beyond to work with me. At the gala, people stopped me in my tracks, multiple times throughout the night to compliment my dress! It was the perfect choice for this event! I would absolutely rent this dress all over again! The only reasons for 4 stars instead of 5 are that the dress arrived so wrinkled that it took me an hour to steam all the wrinkles out. It is also not the most comfortable dress to sit in, but that's a sacrifice you 'd expect with a gorgeous back like this!

This dress stops traffic!!
GORGEOUS!!! This dress is a stunner for sure! I will get super detailed about the fit/sizing etc. because there was little for me to go on based on the description listed and want to make sure everyone knows whats up! This is dress looks like satin in the image, but its actually a poly blend that looks and feels like taffeta/chantung - it's not a stretchy fabric. When the dress arrived, it had pretty noticeable packing lines throughout the dress - creases and all. I work at clothing boutique (thats where my pictures were taken) so I was able to steam most of them out. This fabric does not steam well - it really needs a press at a dry cleaners. Be aware that you may have to get some packing creases out when it arrives to you. Also, since its poly - it holds heat. So, if you are planning to wear this dress in hot temps, you'll sweat - powder down, choose another dress, or suffer through! There is a lot of fabric to sit down on, but you can swing it all to the side if its bothersome. I am a size 6 and wore an 8L. I HIGHLY recommend ordering your true size and the free option one size up. It's a slightly funny fit. The 8 was tight in the hips, but loose in the bust. If you are or below a B cup, you will need padding to fill out the bust space I padded up to a D and was fine. There are bones from the waist to the bust structuring the dress, but does not have a built in bra/corset.

The ONLY downfall to this dress (for me) was that it has built hips - so if you have a long torso (like me, I'm nearly 6ft) you will feel the hip shape start above your hip - just a little extra loose fabric above the start of your hip. I wore kitten heels - 1.5 inch and they worked well with the length of the Long option. I had enough space from the floor to the start of the dress that i wouldn't kick out or step on the dress when I walked. If you are tall and plan on wearing higher heels than 2 inches with this dress, it will be too short. I could dance easily, too! I had people coming up to me and complimenting this dress non-stop all night. It looks like a million bucks and you will turn heads! Please feel free to ask me about anything else that I have missed!!

Stunning...You wore it well! Your details will help many others looking to wear this beautiful gown. I didn't experience all the issues you described (thankfully) and I was able to press out the few wrinkles at home. Loved your look!

Would love to own!!!
This dress was amazing!!! I've had my eye on it for months, and finally had the chance to rent! It needs a bit of work when you get it - steaming/ironing to get rid of the wrinkles but other than that truly amazing! I would love to have this in my closet!!!

AMAZING! I loved this dress and was the hit of the party. It was incredibly slimming
Fit true to size. I'm 5'6" and wore the long version which was perfect with my heels. I normally wear a size 6 in most street clothes, but an 8 in designer clothes. I got both the 6L and the 8L. The 6L fit, but I opted for the 8L so the dress skimmed a little more. I absolutely LOVED this dress!

Wore this dress as part of formal wear for my boyfriend's pageant as his escort. His jaw dropped!!
Fit me to the T!!! The only thing I was able to wear was a G string and adhesive bra underneath. I'm between a size 2 and 4. I ended up choosing the 2. But I'm also somewhat small framed so I would recommend a size up for anyone else.

That back! It's is a WOW back. It really makes the dress.
I wore the 6L because it was a little snug in the hips, but slightly loose in the chest. I also wore 3.5 inch heels ( I'm 5'6). It loosened up as the night went on. Def made for a curvy figure because it is SOOO flattering. The color & cut really emphasized my best assets. Paired with some red lips & gorgeous jewelry and this was one of my favorite dresses I've ever worn to the Marine Corps Ball.

This dress was beautiful and very flattering for a smaller figure.
The dress was a bit long, but with the right platform high heels it was perfect. I felt elegant and had a great time all evening in this gorgeous gown. The train makes it very fun! It did need to be steamed on arrival.
