The most GORGEOUS dress.
I rented this dress for a formal event in the Fall of 2016 and it was an incredible dress. I absolutely LOVED wearing it. The pictures truly don't do it justice.

Felt like a princess
I had originally selected another dress, after UPS could not deliver for my event I was panicking and had to contact rent the runway, they immediately give me other options to select and I had a same-day delivery for the stress I have to say I was beyond impressed with this beautiful dress, I am usually a size 6 but they were super kind to send me a size 4 and a size 6, the dress does run a little big so I actually wore the size 4 in R it was also the perfect length as I am a 5'3", I honestly felt like a princess and everyone complimented me!

I didn't end up wearing it
I thought the dress was beautiful, but didn't end up wearing it. There were a couple of things that didn't fit with my body type. I have a small chest, but my hips and food baby require me to wear a larger size. I did try on the 10 and it fit my waist and hips, but the top portion didn't fit well. I could wear a VS Lacey Bralette under it and it didn't show, but when I sat down it became very gappy. I ordered the 10R and I could wear 2 inch heels without it dragging. You could see the heels, but I thought it still looked fine. Another personal issue I had, more to my body type, is that the straps hit past my shoulders instead of before. It just didn't do my arms any justice.

Rented this gorgeous dress to wear in our updated family portrait, and I LOVED IT! The fit was amazing and true to size, the dress was very comfortable. It was easy to move around in, AND it had pockets!! Win! It photographed beautifully, the color looked amazing with my boyfriend's navy tux. So happy!!

Unique gown with pockets!
I chose this dress for a black tie fundraiser. The color stood out in a sea of more neutral (black) gowns, and I got many compliments. Despite the low V and open back, I was able to wear a normal bra with it (bra with a narrow band between the cups, and I shortened the shoulder straps slightly to keep the band high enough in the back, but still - a normal bra is clutch for my 34DD friends). I don't have much definition at my waist, and found the 10 a bit too large, and the 8 a snug fit that was comfortable for the night. I loved the design, the color, and the POCKETS! Would definitely recommend this dress!

Comfortable and beautiful
I definitely recommend getting the long if you plan to wear any heel. I rented the 2L and it was perfect. I'm smallchested so I didn't need to wear a bra. It was difficult to put on by myself due to zipper and hook-and-eye placements, but it wasn't impossible. The bottom stayed was very full and was easy to move around in. Probably the most comfortable formal I've ever worn. The color is beautiful and the pattern is very unique. Love it.

Magical Dress
I should have ordered the 14 but sometimes designers run small. Order true to size. The skirt is a fairy tale with underskirting. The zipper on the top part of the dress was not aligned so I had to pin it as a precaution. I also had to learn to tape my chest to make this dress work. I am a 36D and after a little duct tape (you tube it) I felt like a movie star. the dress was a joy to dance in and I felt like it glided me across the floor and made me walk taller. ENJOY

Compliments! Compliments! Compliments!
This was my first RTR rental. I ordered a 10R because I read the reviews and someone said it runs big. I'm a size 12 usually. I think that person my have been a lot smaller than me because the dress definitely fit like a 10. I wore the dress to a department awards ceremony. I received so many compliments the entire evening and I promoted RTR like it was my job. The colors of this dress are beautiful and the fabric is very comfortable. A lot of people asked to touch the dress. I enjoyed my night and the regal feel to the dress. I'm very pleased and will be using RTR again.

Perfect for Mardi Gras...fun, flirty, and gorgeous!
Loved it. I felt like a princess. This dress did run large so I am glad I ordered a smaller size than I typically wear. It was also long so I had to temporarily hem it using fashion tape, which worked great and was easy to remove the next day. The dress is very low cut so be sure to have a black safety pin or two handy along with a deep cut push up bra to ensure the "girls" look their best! This dress can be work with heels but because it goes to the floor you can get away with flats. The pockets are fantastic and the material of the dress is simply wonderful. I was told several times that I looked like a princess and yes, I felt like one. I loved this dress. It was comfortable, fit well, was fun to wear but be sure to spray it well underneath with static guard.

Beautiful Beyond Words
I rented this for prom and loved the way it fit! I normally wear a 4 but ended up in the 2 so I would recommend ordering your normal size and the size down just to be on the safe side! Every person I saw loved the dress and it received dozens of compliments, especially when they saw it had pockets :)

Every single person I passed at the Breakers commented. Total show stopper.
Pockets for the win! The dress fit a bit snuggly right at the waist, so if you don't have a toned back, there may be a slight bulge. But honestly, no one noticed. Everyone loved this dress.

It was the perfect winter dress for an evening event!
Pros: IT HAD POCKETS! And it was a one-of-a-kind color and print. Cons: I could've used some garment tape to keep the girls from coming out of the deep v neckline in the front of the gown.

Gorgeous dress, but the way my back rolls are setup...
I got this as my back up gown for A Mardi Gras ball, it looked great, but my body didn't cooperate! The opening in the back was gorgeous for someone with less back fat! I would recommend getting this dress a size smaller bcs the top is low cut and should be snug so that you can wear it without a bra if you like. I am large in the bust so a plunge bra in my skin tone did the trick. I highly recommend this gown for the gorgeous print fabric and the dramatic skirt. You will feel like a princess!!!

So fun and so many compliments!
Fit true to size with the skirt at natural waist. I'm 5'10" and dress was a bit off the floor with 3" heels. But due to small train and full skirt it wasn't noticeable. My dress had been tacked at the vest so it made me feel a bit more comfortable but the 4L that wasn't tacked wasn't that much lower. Depends on your chest size. I probably could have worn 8L for a bit longer length since the skirt would have sat a bit lower. I got so many compliments all nights and the color was beautiful!!

Beautiful but you need tape
THE GOOD: Stunning dress. Deep, rich color. Comfortable. Pockets were A+ and deep enough to carry essentials, but the fullness of the skirt hides any extra bulk. THE BAD: fabric holds wrinkles very well. The dress runs big. Didn't have a size 0 so I got a 2P as my backup size. The fit was much better than the 2R but the dress was short so I had to wear flats. THE UGLY: not sure who the top of the dress is made for. I'm a full 32D and had so much sagging fabric. Fashion tape helped some but you have to be 100% focused on your posture the whole time. Unless you're super well endowed upstairs, you have to get creative.

This was like no other gown I wore for a military ball.
It does show cleavage. I was able to pin it to keep from having a wardrobe malfunction. I had a racer bra that worked perfect for this gown. I wore 2.5 in heels and the length was perfect. I'm in between a 4 and 6. Since this is a fit and flare it fit just right.

Amazing dress!!!
I attended a Mardi Gras Ball and this was the perfect dress for the occassion. The color is beautiful and was more shiney that I thought it would be. The fit is great but does have a low cut, I eneed up pinning to close it up a bit and it worked just fine along with fashion tape. The pockets are a plus for sure. I wore the 4R which fit perfect, it is a bit too short if you plan to wear heels. I am 5'3" and could have easily worn flats. I ended up changing my 3" heels to a lower heel. Overall a great dress !!

So disappointed.
I saw the stress on RTR with a description of a deep plunging neck line. I was super excited when I opened it, the texture of the dress and cut was Beautiful and I could wear my regular bra...which was not a plunging bra. I do not have a massive bust. Turns out there is a single stitch just at the breastbone that prevents it from being a plunging neckline. It looked like another customer stitched it. When I called customer service, they were very attentive and assured me that single stitch was supposed to be there. It ruined the line of the dress, created a pucker and I ended up wearing my back up dress. It was a disappointment.

This dress is a head-turner! I've never gotten as many compliments as I did in this dress!
The only con was the gapping in the chest portion. I think I just should have had an 8L though.

Mardi Gras Ball
I'm 5'7" and 130lbs. The length was perfect. Glad I read the reviews and ordered a long. The size I ordered was a little big and probably could have sized down. I'm usually a 4 or 6 but the 4 was roomy. Super comfy and HAS POCKETS!

pleasant surprise
This dress was quite a pleasant surprise to me. I was supposed to receive the Castle Gown and RTR could not ship since the dress they had in stock had a malfunction so they ended up shipping this one to me without me even knowing. I was at first truly upset cause I had golf accessories and for purple you NEED silver. I mean truly with gold it would have looked super tacky. anyways, I rushed to get silver accessories at Macy's last minute and they complimented this beautiful gown so perfect. I got at least 12 compliments from random people at this gala plus friends and family. I had to use a safety pin at the front cause it opened too much for my taste. this dress fit me well overall and many people said I looked like I was going to the Oscars.

Dem pockets doh!!
I got so many compliments and so many people requesting a photo with me! I felt really special. Everyone loved the dress and the color. And it does photograph shinier than real life. I carried a small clutch to my even so the pockets were very handy. The fit was perfect for my body type. I have a rectangle shape, very athletic, and I still look very feminine in this dress. I am 5'5.5". I'm not very busty or abundant in the backyard. I wore the regular length. I loved the length. You only could've my shoes if I lifted the dress to climb stairs. Or if I cross my legs (not ankles) while seated. But it was not so long that I was tripping everywhere. People do step on the train and it's not THAT long. Unless your shoulders are very flexible, you will need help zipping the top portion. I almost broke my shoulder doing it myself, but that's because I'm stubborn. I did not steam the dress. There were minor wrinkles at the bottom, but as you can see it's not noticeable, or it works with the flow of the dress. The dress is very well-made, and the material is not cheap looking or cheap feeling. I will say I think it looks better on me than in the model/mannequin photos, then again, I did accessorize it. I would suggest simple accessories for such a beautiful dress. I did gold and red to make the purple stand out more. The bottom is as thick as it looks. I was very please with that! I am a 34B and I think this would still look nice on a medium breasted woman, as long as you have the equipment to prevent a peak-a-boo. Because if you sit a certain way, or twist your torso a certain way, someone to your left or right COULD catch a look see of something, but not someone in front of you. You may not have to worry about that, because I sit really weird sometimes, but I also had the flower patches covering me.

Amazing dress! (and pockets!)
I wore this dress to my senior year father daughter dance. It fits true to size, and it is absolutely beautiful! The colors are bright, and the pockets are so helpful. I ended up not wearing a bra with this dress, but with a little fashion tape I was free to dance and not be worried for the entire night. You'll draw every eye in the room and get so many complements!

I wore the 18wl but would have like to wear the 16wl after trying the two different sizes I had ordered (my backup was the 16wr) I'm 5'9 and the R length wasn't long enough to add heels. I think someone may have had the 18 altered because it fit much tighter and the keyhole in the back was much larger than the 16 which I didn't love. The dress was a hit though! I got a ton of compliments and felt great all night. I did need to pin the bust because that was just too much bust for me. The pockets made the dress, I didn't have to bring a purse which in my mind is a always great.

Pockets!
Let me start by saying I ordered this dress because I was 16 weeks pregnant at the time. So if you are looking for something bump friendly this is a good option. I wore this with 3" inch heels and it was also the perfect length for my 5'4 height. I have larger boobs now being pregnant so I did have to pin the top a little but that was no big deal. I also loved that it had pockets. I had plenty of compliments about looking good but not specifically on the dress. This is a pretty dress and it worked just fine but I have loved others more. That's just my personal preference but overall a great dress.

Fun and Formal
This dress was perfect for a hairstylist awards show. I love that it had pockets. This was my first RTR experience and the only disappointment was dealing with the return. I dropped it off at the store and was charged the next month for not returning. They took care of it but it was annoying to have to have them refund my card and it was hard to get it taken care of.

Photoshoot
This gown is gorgeous in person! The color is vibrant and photographs very well. I could not wear a bra because the cut-out would have shown the hooks. Because of that (I think) there was quite a bit of space in the chest area. Overall I loved it just make sure you have pasties!

Magical Princess Dress
Best dress I've ever worn, I've never had so many compliments in my life. People were calling me Cinderella all night long. If you have a bigger chest, this might not be the best dress for you, it's pretty low in the front. 5'6 or taller, if you want to wear heels, go for the long!
