Felt like a million bucks! Compliments left and right!
I believe in PROS first: I was hired to plan a dear friends wedding so I needed a dress that I would be comfortable in and cute! This dress surpassed all my needs and more! The pockets were awesome! I was able to store my Walkie Talkie, and planning needs without looking bulky or crazy! I was also able to wear my Nike's with the dress as it was long enough not to trip over and no one noticed at all! Wish I could store this in my closet for ever! CONS: The bust area is just a little tight but I am a 34 DDD sooo I'm definitely not the norm! I've also noticed that the zippers on lots of the rent the runway dresses seem to get caught and are hard to get up lots of times even though there's space enough to zip. Probably because of the rental turnaround and zippers are always the first thing to break. Nothing to stop me from renting again though!

The Modern-day Ballgown!
The color of the dress is absolutely gorgeous, and meets up to the pictures. It was tons of fun to wear a big ballgown, and even better that it had pockets! The dress does run very big though. I'm usually a 10 or 12 in designer clothes, and could've used an 8 in this dress. The 10 still worked out ok, but there was extra room. And I'm 5'9" but as still able to wear 3" heels with the Long, which was great. All around an awesome dress, perfect for a black tie wedding!

Exquisite
This dress received so many compliments, and it was so comfortable I could have slept in it. I will always rent ML dresses now! The best part it had POCKETS!!!! The train and fullness of the skirt was manageable and beautiful. I am 5'8" 127 lbs and wore heels with the 2L . Perfection. Thank you RTR!

Being the only one at prom with my dress.
The fit was perfect. The little bit of poof on the bottom made me feel like a princess. I loved the way it fit my waist. All night people were complimenting me. I felt amazing. The only negative I have is that I'm 5'4 (also my bust is 36 DD) and it was floor length on me when I was barefoot. I was under the assumption that it was a little long. And with my 3' inch heel, the dress was a little off the ground. Also the return bag they gave me was too small so I had to cut off the return label and put it on the original box which was a small hassle.

The dress was perfect, I would prefer a little longer. I got so many compliments!!
The dress was beautiful!! Such a great material and it moved so well.. I went with a larger size just so that I would be more comfortable and because the cut out on the back, I didn't want it to be even remotely tight.. I could have worn a regular bra with the gown but choose a sticky bra instead. I got a billion compliments on the dress and definitely fit the Marine Corps Ball setting. I highly suggest this dress!! The pockets are super fun and convenient too!!

The whole event was a fun celebration!
So this dress came in because the back up size to another one wasn't available last minute. It is not my style but to credit RTR it is pretty similar to the one I had selected. The dress is beautiful and well made. I loved the fabric. It is a lot of dress. A super full skirt. I wouldn't chose to wear this simply because I wouldn't be comfortable with the neckline and the skirt for me is too full. However, for the right event with someone who would be comfortable with the cut this dress would be a standout. I normally wear a 2 or a 0 so the 4L back-up was definitely too big for me. ( I ordered the 4L back up in another dress because it said it ran a little small, which it did.) So I would definitely say this dress runs true to size.

A dress fit for a princess!
The dress is much more vibrant in person than when you look to rent it. It is extremely comfortable and the volume of the skirt is just right. I received compliments all evening long and the pockets are an added bonus! Easy to dance in and hard to let go and return. A must have for any formal affair - you will not be disappointed! Sad to see it go - a great gown! Rent it!

Simple to order and made my event more enjoyable since there was no stress of what to wear!
Pros: Elegant; Fun; Easy to wear, Felt so gorgeous in this dress and received so many compliments more than I could count!!! Cons: None- Just know if you have a wide athletic back such as myself it may be a little tighter in the bust area.

Beautiful, luxe, easy-to-wear gown!
I absolutely loved this gown. It was such a comfortable dress to wear, especially since the structure of the top made it possible to wear a normal bra even with the cutout. It was fitted right at the waist, but comfortable everywhere else so I think most body types could wear this. The skirt had so much gorgeous volume and movement, it made me feel like a princess! And the fabric was so lovely and vibrant. Would definitely recommend!

So much prettier than the model pics!
This dress is gorgeous in person. It fit really well on top, but if you are on the petite side like me then the front v-cut can fall a bit lower than it is supposed to. Nothing a backless plunge bra can't fix. It is comfortable to wear and the length was good so I didn't trip on it, even with lower heels. Only draw back to this dress is that the skirt is very full. If I would have worn it to dinner I probably would have taken up a seat and a half! I didn't end up wearing it for this event but would consider it for something else.

A total princess moment!
I went with a size 2R and it proved to be too tight and short. I think I could have done with a 4L but they didn't have it available for replacement, hence, the 6L. i am 5'3" and usually skinny but since I'm pregnant and the dress was for my baby shower. I had troubles with the size. I do tend to wear high heels (4" or so) which is why I went with the longer length and it was perfect. The dress is gorgeous, has more of a blue hue to it in day light and purple indoors. You can easily wear a regular bra with it and some dresses have a stitch (from previous renters) to make the neckline less low. Mine didn't. And I loved it that way. The overall fit is more true to size I think. Just the length I think is what you should be mindful of. Gorgeous dress! Very princess like.

Bummed but beautiful.
I had looked forward to this dress for over a month but when it arrives it was swimming on me. I even tried to pin it back and pair with a cardigan but it just looked frumpy. Overall it was beautiful, full and best of all had pockets!

Gorgeous dress
This dress fits very well and it beautiful. It runs true to size. I'm 5'8 137 and wore the 4L with heels. The dress looked awesome and I loved the pockets. I am not sure though that is rent again as there were 2 other girls in the exact dress. I feel that RTR could track the zip code to ensure this won't happen. It was really disappointing to be in the same dress as 2 others.

INCREDIBLY GORGEOUS GOWN IN EVERY WAY
From the second I put this dress on, I fell in love. I'm not exaggerating when I say I wish that I could wear it every day. I was torn between the 6 and the 8. The waist of the 6 was a little snug but the top on the 8 was a little too big in the shoulders and chest. In the end I decided to wear the 6. The top of this dress should definitely fit snugly to prevent any "over sharing." I received so many compliments on this dress and i definitely stood out, it's not a dress to wear if you want to hide out on the corner. It makes you feel beautiful!

Colors on dress are amazing.
Dress runs large-especially on the top. I would definitely make sure next time to order a size down. I'm usually a 14/16 but with this dress I could've (and should've) worn a 12. Love that it has pockets and it's a comfortable dress.

Amazing fabric
This dress is a beautiful color and very high quality. I wore a 2R. The bust is what I had a problem with, I am a 32 D and I did quite fill out the bust enough to make it look appropriate so I had to do some major work to try to fix that. I am also 5'5 and wore 2 inch heels and the dress was a little shorter than I would have liked. Overall gorgeous

Rent this dress and get every head to turn
This dress was STUNNING! I wear a 0 or 2 depending on the dress. Needed a 0 here. The length was perfect for someone 5'4" and I didn't wear very tall shoes!! They were maybe 2.5"! I wore it for a charity ball and I had probably 10 people stop me and tell me how stunning my dress was. Everyone at work was in awe before we left for the event! I cannot begin to explain how much I love this gown! Oh and I put my phone, business card holder, small money/credit card holder, lipstick, extra double sided tape (you'll need it!) and Bobby pins in the pockets and you'd never have known! Not worrying with a bag was a major plus! It's the perfect dress.

I felt like Royalty!
I ordered this dress to wear at a Mardi Gras Ball that I was attending and the members of the Krewe were asked to wear purple. Purple would have never been my first choice, or any choice, but when I found this dress I was in awe! It was beautiful, and I received numerous compliments. The fabric and make of the dress was very upscale and I found it to fit true to size. Like many other reviews I really appreciated the pockets too. I was completely satisfied with this dress.

Beautiful dress, but way to big!
The dress is stunning, but ran at least two dress sizes too big for me, and I had to call and get a replacement stat. The customer service is phenomenal and they sent me a different dress right away. (Also if you are self conscious of your mid to lower back, this dress is not for you. )

The customer service is really great!
I wore this dress to a black tie charity gala. The color and fabric were gorgeous!! I got SO many compliments all night long. People LOVED this dress! It's 10 times more beautiful in person. Some notes- it definitely runs big, so order a size down as a back up. People kept stepping on my train because the event was so packed, so I was holding my dress up most of the night. I was able to wear a regular push up bra, but I couldn't wear spanx because of the key hole cutout in the lower back. I also had to run and pick up a steamer because the fabric was super wrinkled when it arrived through no fault of RTR. I had 3 dresses delivered and this was the only one that was wrinkled. Last thing- RTR has the most amazing customer service and really went above and beyond to help me find something when I had some issues with my first delivery.

Even more stunning in person!
Pictures do not even begin to accurately portray the beautiful, lush quality of the fabric or how vibrant the colors of this dress are. This dress is truly a head turner and could not have been more perfect for the black tie charity event my husband and I attended in Philadelphia, PA. Every time I turned the corner someone else complimented me. My favorite feature of the dress was the pockets. It was also comfortable to wear and walk in all evening. Because it was floor length, I was able to wear a lower heeled shoe, which added to the comfort factor. The only thing I was slightly uncomfortable with was how low the dress was cut in the bust. I prefer a little more coverage in that area. That aside, I absolutely loved the dress! Highly recommend!

Beautiful Dress!
I rented this dress to MC a gala. The dress was gorgeous and fit beautifully. I am not busty so the neckline was not inappropriate for a formal affair but it is fairly low cut. The pattern is vibrant in person and has a sheen to it. Also, the dress has pockets. I received compliments all evening. I would definitely recommend this dress!

Very long-yay!
This dress was an alternate for me to a daytime, black tie wedding. I didn't end up wearing it but it was so gorgeous (and I will rent it again for sure!). The mini-train and full skirt meant I could wear a two inch heel and still have the dress brushing the floor. If you're tall - pick this one!! I could've probably done with the 8L since the back is elastic, but the 10L fit well enough.

I felt like a princess in this gown!!
I normally wear a 14 pants but have a smaller waist. this dress doesn't come in a 14 so I chose the 12 regular and the 10 long because the 12 long was out of stock. Well thank god I did because the 10 long fit perfect! I am very large chested 34G but somehow they fit. If you are a smaller waist size I would deff suggest going smaller because of the waist is elastic. It was a perfect dress and the plus side it had pockets!!!

Gorgeous gown with full skirt.
This dress and the fabric were beautiful! It is purple and dark blue, but the blue only appears in some lighting. It runs a little large so make your back up size smaller than usual. The deep V in the front and the open back make it hard to wear a bra so I used body tape and it worked perfectly. It has a slight train on the back which is beautiful, but unexpected and hard to dance in. So many compliments all night!!

Size down in this gorgeous dress
Love love love this gorgeous dress! Wish I could hang onto forever. Pockets fit iPhone 6 Plus, lipstick and ID. Long length still brushed ground in 3 inch heels. Only complaint is the top runs really large. I wish I would've sized down to a 14WL but this dress was so beautiful and comfortable I chose to wear it over my other dress I received, even though it fit better.

Perfect Fit, Jaw Dropping Dress
The dress was amazing! Pockets are a no brainier. The material is gorgeous and really dazzles under party lights. It was a great low cut, but still held me in pretty well. The elastic back made it perfect.

I got so many compliments on this gown at a black tie winter wedding! I also loved having pockets
I had to safety pin the V. I am small busted, a 34B/32C. I loved the pockets and with 3 inch heels the length was fine (I am 5'3.5"). The dress is large and I didn't want to rumple it up, so I carried it on in a large duffel bag for my flight. I would totally recommend! I am more pear shaped so for this shape chose a 4R and it fit well as expected. With something more fitted on bottom I usually wear a 6 (pant size)
