This dress made me feel unstoppable.
This dress was EVERYTHING. I wore it to the Marine Corps birthday ball, and it was perfect. My curves looked delicious! Its had a flair at the bottom for some dimension to the dress. My Man couldn't tell me enough how good it looked. The picture with the dress on the model gives it 0 justice. I HAVE OFFICIALLY FALLEN IN LOVE WITH RTR. The only thing that caught me off guard was that I couldn't wear a bra, but you cant even tell. - I recommend getting your size and a size larger-

Perfect for black tie wedding!
Was a little too long for me... But I knew that might be the case when ordering it bc the 0L was not available. Kept stepping on it when I was dancing and I was afraid I might trip on the bottom. Other than that, perfect dress! I would love to own it in the smaller size. Got so many compliments throughout the night.

The top was a little big. I had to pin a bra in the dress so that I filled it out

Pretty but def worn
This was a really pretty dress and really soft and comfortable. The top was a bit loose and not as fitted as the bottom and it loosens up as you wear so be careful with that as you can't wear a bra. I wore a 3 or 4 inch heel and the dress was a bit shorter than is like and in only 5'2. I would recommend for a formal event. Nice navy color.

Too short :(!
I was so excited for this dress, but it was WAY to short!! I read several reviews and had fear that this may happen. But even flats couldn't make it work. So glad I had it delivered two days before my event. RTR girls were so helpful and assured a different dress would be over nighted in time. She even suggested we ship it to my hotel in case I have to leave my house before it arrives!

Poor fit for pear shapes
Beautiful dress (though the lace was showing quite a bit of wear) but was a poor fit for my body type. Fit well through hips but was much too large through bust and shoulders. Didn't end up wearing this dress.

The dress made me feel stunning. It fit well and I was still able to dance all through the night
This dress is tighter in the middle which really helps show of your figure. It's more mermaid style than I realized when I ordered it but it fit nicely and runs true to size. I wore heals but I was still able to be bare foot with out the dress dragging bot getting caught

Felt gorgeous!
The dress arrived on the exact day I selected and the packaging was spot on! I got a 10r my regular size and went up a size to 12r as back up. The 10 fit but I have a pretty big behind so the 12 was more comfortable! It's been a while since we've gotten dressed up this much and I think I pretty much knocked my husbands socks off when I walked downstairs! I felt gorgeous all night long and I loved my first RTR experience. The dress was awesome and I will be returning to RTR for my next event!

The dresses came a day earlier than expected and the gifts that it came with were a great treat!
Dress was amazing. A little tighter than what I thought but with some spanx it fit perfectly!! Got lots of complements all night and the length was perfect with 2.5-3" heels. Couldn't have asked for a better dress!

I've never felt so beautiful. Perfect for a black tie event.
The dress honestly felt like it was made for me. It was tight in all the right places without feeling too constricted. I was able to move freely and feel comfortable all night long. It was perfect length for me which is unheard of for me. I'm 5'2 and wore 3 inch heels, it perfectly skimmed the floor. I seriously never wanted to return it - never felt so beautiful. HIGHLY recommend. In addition, RTR has the best customer service I've ever experienced. My back up size became unavailable and they were so accommodating. I even got the gorgeous earrings thrown in at no extra cost. They are seriously amazing. I'll be a lifelong customer.

Really pretty dress. The 0 regular wasn't long enough and the 2R was too big so I didn't wear it.
Really beautiful dress! I am 5'6" and very flat chested. The 0R fit perfectly but was too short for me unless I wore flats. The 2R was the right length but too big in the bodice. If I had ordered the 0 long I probably would have worn this dress. Very comfortable and has enough structure to hold I. A little tummy pooch.

Loved it but didn't have size
I am in between an 8 & a 10. My first dress from RTR was an 8, this one was only available in an 8 and no 10 so I went with it. It would have been fine for most people but I can't function with anything half way tight so I didn't wear it. I will definitely rent again when I can size up a bit. It had gorgeous detail and I adore this dress!!!

I felt like a movie star
I usually wear size 8, and I was so happy that my back up size 10 was available, because that's what I ended up wearing. I felt the 8 was too tight around my hips and I wanted to be comfortable for the night. The 10 was a little big in the bust area, but wearing a black strapless bra was much better for me. Is not a dragging dress so wearing a medium heel was perfect for me. I got a lot of compliments that night. Very happy with my earrings and bracelets too! I'm looking forward to rent more outfits!!! Thank you RTR!

A few guests at the wedding came up to me to tell me how beautiful the dress fit & ask where I gotit
I'm usually a size 6 and wore a 6L. I thought the dress was longer but had to choose not such high heels and it was like an inch above the ground. I'm 5'6-5'7. Pros: the dress fit like it was made for me. Cons: would have liked a little more support around the chest. I wear a 32 G bra and it fits me a little small so I think overall the support is Great for someone with not such large breast. This was my first time renting from RenttheRunway but it will definitely not be my last!!

I felt so elegant in this dress!
The fit was great, if anything maybe a little loose. Very flattering though! I wore a mid heel shoe and the gown would not have been long enough for anything taller for me. I used one of those sticky, strapless bras and it fit perfect! I received so many compliments, this dress feels so elegant and gorgeous! Perfect for the USN Submarine Birthday Ball!!

Absolutely glamorous!
I wore this dress to a military ball. The dress fit well overall, but the top was a little loose. Also the lace was very worn around the sleeves, and some of the hook and eye closers were coming loose. However, my husband said that I looked "insanely beautiful" and that it was a perfect pick for the night. I received so many compliments it was a bit embarrassing. I would definitely recommend this dress for your next formal affair!

Beautiful and comfortable dress! Wore to a black tie wedding.
Beautiful dress. Very comfortable and easy to dance in. I was a bit uncomfortable with the fact that I could not wear a real bra so I secured the puppies with a bunch of fashion tape and it worked out fine. I think the dress definitely runs short.

Beautiful, classy, elegant dress for my senior formals!
This was my first time with RTR so I was nervous when ordering sizes. I ended up getting an 8 and a 10. The 8 fit perfectly on my bust but the 10 fit perfectly on my hips so I ended up going with the 10. The top was pretty loose so I wore a strapless push up bra and had to pin some of the lace fabric in the back. No one could tell and I felt comfortable and sexy all night! This dress was really perfect.

Continuous compliments all evening--stunning gown!
The fit is true to size other than the length. I'm 5'6 and the regular would have been way too short. The material is figure flattering and lightweight. I did not wear a bra since the cup lining provided enough support. The see-through lace on the chest is just enough to feel sexy yet conservative. My biggest worry initially was the cap sleeves shifting, but the 3 clasps at the neck kept them secure. The open back is beautiful. (Wish I had gotten a pic of it!) I highly recommend this gown if you are looking for something that is revealing in the right areas yet still classy. My first RTR experience won't be my last! :)

The lace is very intricate and beautiful. The dress looks black in pictures online, but it is navy blue in person.

Not quite right
This dress was gorgeous however I didn't end up wearing it because it barely zipped even though I ordered it in my correct size. With it being a fitted dress already it just didn't flatter my curves the way I wanted it to. One thing I might add is that in the picture it looks black so in my mind I was ordering a black lace dress... I didn't think to look at the description, it is a navy dress! I'm sure most people notice that but just in case, now you know!

Very flattering!
The actual fit of the dress is perfect and true to size, but the length runs small if you want to wear heels. I am 5'5" and the dress was hemmed to sit perfectly on the floor with no shoes on. I wore heels so the dress ended up being about 3 inches off the floor. I would suggest getting your correct size and getting the back up dress in the same size but in the larger option. Other than that the dress is very flattering and I received many compliments! It also has enough support that it you can wear it without a bra.

Great experience with RTR- will absolutely rent again!
Dress fit pretty well overall but was somewhat loose on the top lace part. I'm 5'8" and got the regular because I was unfortunately on crutches for the wedding and didn't want to trip over the dress. On a regular day the long would've definitely been what I went with! A few places where the lace was a little worn and it was missing the clasp at the top of the zipper. The imperfections were not noticeable to anyone but me and overall it was a great dress and I received a ton of compliments!!

Showstopper. Elegant and formal yet sexy!
I loved how I felt in this dress. Sexy yet elegant. Very open back so don't get it if you don't feel confident in that area. It was very comfortable and perfect for a black tie wedding. Didn't need a bra which was nice. For girls like me who have narrow shoulders, it was perfect in the hips but a tiny bit loose on top. Also the lace felt a bit stretched out in the size2 so the edges didn't hug my shoulders and back like it probably should have. I think that's just part of the fact that it's a rental. Very minor detail though. Overall loved it and got tons of compliments.

Amazing dress and service!
The fit was great and ran pretty true to size. I'm almost 5'10, 145lbs and wore a 6L. I wore about 2.5 inch heels and the dress perfectly covered my shoes without dragging. I love this dress and it was perfect for a black tie wedding. Elegant and Classic with a side of sexy.

I felt like a celebrity attending an awards show!
This dress is my favorite RTR experience so far! The dress fit perfectly and hugged all the right places. I did wear spanx just to smooth out problem areas a bit. I am almost 5'8" and ordered the 8L, and with 3 inch heels, the length was perfect. My only negative comment is that the back of the dress at the bottom snagged on my heel several times, and I had to hold on to something to bend down and unhook it. Otherwise, I would wear this dress again! I received so many compliments and one person even told me I looked like celebrity status!

Loved wearing this dress!
This was the first time I have used Rent the Runway and I am hooked! I was really nervous because I never buy clothes online, have curvy body shape and usually need to try it on first but the other reviews were so helpful I thought why not give it a try! I am 5'10 and the dress was perfect with my 3 inch heals also had some give in the hip area, also was just beautiful! Got lots of compliments. I am so glad I used RRW and look forward to picking out my dress for next year!
