I felt like the belle of the ball.
Gorgeous gown! I felt like the belle of the ball. At 5'9" I was able to wear a 3" heel and the dress length was perfect for dancing. If I was not going to be dancing, I would have rented the long. As others have already stated, the bodice is VERY tight. I was sore the next day, but I did not have to tug at the bust line all night. So, pick your poison.

Fantastic
Completely lives up to the pictures. Great quality. Beautiful. Felt like royalty. Got TONNES of compliments all night. Belle of the gala. Spent a lot of time with temporary hem tape shortening the hem so I didn't have to wear super high heels.

I have never felt so glamorous!
I absolutely loved this dress. I was a little skeptical because it was a patterned dress for a formal affair but omg I have never felt to good in my life! I got so many compliments and was told I looked like grace Kelly wish I could wear this dress to every event I went to! This dress is great for hour glass as I find it really hard for dresses to fit me at the waist. The bust was more on the small size but I am a C so it was not terrible but definitely doesn't need a bra. If you want to have the best looking dress at your event definitely get this! Also it has pockets aka you don't need a purse so double win.

This dress was a total show stopper. I got so many compliments at my prom! It is such great quality.
I loved this dress. There is a super cute slit up the front which was a good surprise! I have a wide ribcage so the dress was pretty tight around my ribcage, but not completely unbearable!

Too tight for comfort!
I received this in a 6L but it was too tight around the rib cage. Usually I wear a 4 or 6. This one was too tight and too long. Unfortunately they didn't have an 8 regular available. The gown is gorgeous and I would have loved to wear it. They were very kind and sent me another dress which I wore and it also was gorgeous. Final verdict I love to rent from RTR.

I got more compliments than I ever had wearing this stunner!
This dress is incredible! I felt like a princess all night wearing it. Strangers walked up to me all night to comment on the dress. I am 5'7" and wore about four inch heels and it was perfect length wearing the regular size. The long would have been too long. No need to wear a bra as the top is very fitted. The boning in the top can pinch a little bit when sitting for long periods of time but who cares because this dress is so worth it!! It made for a magical evening!

Beautiful dress!!
I wore this dress for a Military Ball. It was perfect! I loved the style and the pockets! I got so many compliments on it all night!! The only drawback is that the 10 was tight right around the ribs. I think the 12 would have been perfect. I ordered the long and the regular and the regular was long enough for heels. Would definitely rent this dress again!

Extremely small!! i recommend going a size up!
This dress was absolutely gorgeous when it came in. I was so excited to wear it to a mardi gras ball! i ordered 2 sizes (0R and 2R) and they were both extremely small. I recommend going a size up. I usually wear a 2 in dresses. I am 5'2", 120 lbs, and i am a 34D cup size, The dress did not fit over my chest and waist. I was really sad about not being able to wear it!!! next time i will probably order a 4R.

The dress is GORGEOUS!
I wore this dress for my Military ball and I absolutely loved it! I read all of the reviews and they were spot on! At first I didn't realize there was a slit in it, but it really adds to the dress. It doesn't go up to high either. Just a classy slit. The zipper once you hit the seams are a little tricky but once you get passed that it fit like a glove. The back is a bit low so I suggest wearing a sticky bra if you have one or it will show in the back. They heels I wore were 4.75 inches and I am 5'6 and the height was perfect! I got the 0R. I'm very skinny and only way 105. And my bust is a 32 A, and it still fit perfectly! I wasn't pulling up my dress all night like I was expecting to be. I continued to get complements throughout the night! Really a stunning dress I'm very pleased. I will definitely use rent the runway in the future

The dress made me feel awesome at a black tie function. I will use rent a runway again for sure.
I'm a 'thick' women, so the dress size up fit better. this dress drags on the ground, it's hard to walk upstairs. but I still loved it. I also loved that the dress has pockets.

THE BEST
I can not say enough great things about this dress! I've rented plenty from RTR and this one has yielded the most compliments. People were coming up to me from everywhere to comment on this dress; my trip to the bathroom alone won 3 compliments. Some examples included that I looked like I belonged at the Oscars, or that I looked like a model :) The fit between the 8 and 10 were drastically different in my opinion, and I sized up. That being said the boning was comfortable and flattering, there are pockets, and there are several bodice eye/hook closures in the back which meant I could go braless and was well supported. I'm 5'7" and wore 2" heels and still the regular length dragged, which was fine for my event, but I would not recommend this dress for an event with dancing. There is a lot of fabric which makes it great for Winter, but again, easy for people to step on the bottom. If you are a taller lady and are going for ultimate glamour, look no further!

Felt STUNNING, attracted compliments galore
This is a beautiful and well made dress! The design is perfect because you can pair it with any other accent colors, and it's classy and subtly simplistic. As for the fit, when I ordered I should have done so further ahead of time in order to get the size I preferred. I read other reviews that the top bodice is very snug and has no give and I would agree with this. Ideally I would have liked an 8L with a 10L backup, but the only size available was a 6L so I ordered that with no backup. It took some work to get into, and once zipped up pinched and poked in some places uncomfortably, but I still made it through the night and received tons of compliments. An advantage to fit was not having to tug up on it all night! It literally did not move while I walked, jumped, danced with my hands in the air, etc. Order this dress and you won't be sorry! You'll be the showstopper of the party.

Incredible dress! Felt like a princess!
This was dress was so much fun to wear! I received compliments all night and felt like the most gorgeous woman in the room. Wearing this dress made me feel like a princess! The only issue I had was that my normal size 14 ran small and thank goodness I went with a bigger size up as my back up dress. I will definitely rent again!

Super fun dress
I looooved this comfy dress. I would have been fine to wear either the 2 or the 4 but went with the tighter top on the 2 so I wouldn't have to be pulling the dress up all night. Also loved the pockets!!

Everyone was staring at my gown and complimenting me all evening!
You will not be disappointed in this dress! I wear a 0 from The Limited and Express, and a size A cup. This dress is really fitted at the top, but it needs to be that way to hold up all the fabric. Just be prepared to take a deep breath and have someone help you zip it. I was told on the way out, "You had the best dress there. It's stunning!"

Princess Dress!
This was such a beautiful dress and perfect for the Marine Corps Ball. It fit perfectly and stayed in place all night...no tugging at the bust. The pockets were great. I didn't even have to carry a purse! The dress is very full and long so I was accidentally stepped on a few times. I highly recommend this dress if you want something elegant and stunning for a special event! I felt like a princess all night and my husband loved it!

I was the bell of the ball! Everyone loved my dress.
The bust was a bit tight and it was a bit long. I'm 5'3" and wore 4" heels and it still was on the longer side. It was such a gorgeous dress the length didn't bother me that much.

Perfect Ball Dress
This dress was perfect! It was a little hard to zip up and I had to put wax on the zipper. It doesn't look as impressive in photos or on the hangers. I had a red strapless dress as a back up and originally everyone said they liked the red one...until they saw this one on. It was a clear winner

The dress was gorgeous & easy to wear
I got so many compliments. The dress looked amazing. I am 5'8 &wore 4" heels but the 6L was still too long by a good amount. The bodice is the only fitted part. High waist & lower ribs are all that it needs to fit. Never worried bodice was falling down. I wasn't pulling at the dress all night. It will fit variety of chest sizes. I am 32C. Had room for padding.

Such a great dress and great service with RTR!
I wore this dress to a very formal Masquerade ball that I hosted. As the host of the event, i needed a "wow" dress and that was the feedback I received all night! It's a great statement dress, is very comfortable and it fit great. I added a black flower belt and some black gloves to go with the mask!

Incredible dress, received compliments all night!
This dress fit amazing. I have a large chest (36 D-DD) but felt supported the entire night. I loved having pockets - phone, lipstick, make up blotter, and money fit in and you couldn't tell. The boning was noticeable but not uncomfortable. This dress made me feel incredible and I was complimented all evening so I call it a success.

RaiseYourGlass.org charity gala for Shriners Hospital. As a founder, I needed a showstopper! WOW!
This is an amazing dress for anyone looking for an incredible dress! My husband and I along with local community members created the Raise Your Glass Foundation. Our annual charity gala is something so many look forward to. This dress received compliments ALL NIGHT LONG! I loved the pockets and felt I was the belle of the ball! Rent this and you'll be asked all night where you got this dress!!

I wore this dress for a work event and it was by far my favorite rental!
The pros are the print, the pockets, the fullness of dress and the quality. The cons are the tightness in the ribcage area. I could have gotten away with the 2L but I wouldn't have been able to breath all night. I really needed the 4L but it was rented out. The 6L works with some temporary tacking on the side. I'm on the taller side but the larger size gave me more length so I was able to wear 3 inch heels and still have it hit the floor. The dress was a big hit-Everyone was coming over to tell me how much they loved the dress. Way to go RTR!!!!!

The perfect formal dress.
This was a dress RTR selected as a replacement after a frustrating series of dress mishaps. I wasn't optimistic, but...HOLY COW. I wish I had picked this one first! It was STUNNING. You won't regret renting it - compliments all night, and the slit made it much easier to maneuver. Gorgeous box pleats. Tight bodice, but I'm still glad I went with the 0, as I have a very small bust size.

You Won't Be Sorry
This was a last minute reservation for me as I'd forgotten about a black tie event I was obligated to attend. Well thank goodness for last minute rentals. It looked amazing and I received compliments all evening. Big busted gals take note, the corset isn't very forgiving. I sized up a bit for that reason.

The compliments would not stop! It stayed up all night..and POCKETS!!
Where do I begin. This was my first RTR and I used this dress for my wedding reception. There were zero cons. After receiving an email 2 days before it was expected to arrive I was notified the size I ordered was too damanged from the previous renter to ship. RTR called me, immediately sent me a dress of a similar style to match the theme of my wedding and I received the replacement the next morning. Even after all that fuss I STILL received the original dress on time!!!!! Upon receiving this dress it looked brand new, the way the waist is cut helps hold the dress up and despite being strapless I didn't have to tug on it all during the night. I felt amazing!!! I rented the regular length as well but for the 4inch heels I was wearing the long covered my shoes and allowed me to still walk where the regular length exposed my shoes.

Amazing quality and weight! Super flattering with the built I. Corset. And love the hidden pockets!
The dress was amazing quality and felt amazing on. I'm a 36DD, so the inside corset was perfect for holding everything in and making me feel comfortable. There are hidden pockets which were awesome to have. I thought I would be able to fit a 14, but my just was too big so im,glad I got a 16 as back up. I received compliments all night for this dress and couldn't be happier with it.

this dress was an amazing statement piece! neutral, but with a bold pattern.
the dress is fairly true to size, but if you aren't sure - i'd recommend sizing up (granted i have a fuller bust). it's heavy and long, so if you're not 5'9" or taller, i'd recommend the regular length. the neutral color, paired with a bold pattern is killer. i wore this to the sf symphony opening night gala and received numerous compliments. it's fun, festive and well made.

Spectacular dress!
This dress was a total knockout! The fit is determined by the chest which ran a little small, so I had to size up. The dress is gorgeous and there's a hidden but tasteful slit which added drama. As someone else mentioned, the bodice can rub at the top of the hips a little but that was minor. Would rent it again in a second!

Very Luxurious but Size Up
A few things, A this dress feels like a million bucks. B. If you're a size whatever....go AT LEAST two sizes up. Seriously I could fit an entire person in my chest area but couldn't get it zipped in the back.....weird. ANYWAY returned without wearing.

Stunning Gown!
I was stopped over and over with comments about this dress---the big, bold pattern was amazing and the fit is very flattering. The bodice runs a Tad small. I usually wear either a 6 or an 8...and I definitely needed the eight. Note: The fit is snug up top and you'll need someone to help with getting it on as the zipper is tough. But, once it was on, it was quite comfy. Oh, and it has pockets (amazing)! I was so sad to send this back!

Absolute Perfection!
I rented this gown for a small, intimate wedding in the city this summer. It fit perfectly, though, I likely could've gotten away with wearing a size 4 instead of the 6, as it was the slightest bit loose on top. While the fabric was heavy, it was super easy to walk in (thanks to the unnoticeable slit in the front that hits right around the knee), and I was able to wear a small, 2 inch heel without it dragging on the ground. The biggest plus for function is, of course, POCKETS! Nothing beats being able to keep your cellphone, chapstick, and lipgloss hidden in this red-carpet-worthy gown! I felt like a movie star, with compliments from tons of folks throughout the night. Just a word to the wise, as I found out the hard way; if you're wearing this for a summer event, be sure there will be air conditioning close by! It's likely more appropriate for a cooler weather event, but I don't regret wearing it one bit!

Stunningly romantic gown... a must for any formal event!
This is by far the most amazing dress I have ever worn. Everything from the material to the pattern, to the shape, to the fit was perfect. I felt so beautiful and confident. And I received tons of compliments! The dress fit me like a glove and was very comfortable. And the best part... it has pockets!

This dress is a 10 out of 10!
I really wanted this dress in a 6R but it wasn't available for my rental dates, so I went with a 6L and an 8R. The 6 ended up fitting like a GLOVE, bust and everything. It was a tad long for me, and I'm 5'8, but I wore some massive heels that made it the perfect length (heels were about 5 inches tall). The fit of this dress squeezes in all the right places for me, it made my waist look tiny and my bust wasn't overbearing and huge. Everything just worked SO WELL in this dress. The compliments were never ending!
