Fits like a glove!
I had a really tough time choosing a gown for a black tie affair but I'm so glad I went with this one! It was very elegant and I got tons of compliments. I'm 5' even so I was worried about not getting a petite dress but it was a perfect length with my 4 inch heals (anything else would have dragged).

The original dress that I ordered for this event was too short and RTR and I received this one .
Loved this dress. I felt so glamorous in it. I normally wear a 6 and I sized up to an 8L. I think the 6 would've fit but it would've hugged my curves more.

Loved loved! So classy and elegant!
This was not my original choice, but the dress I had ordered was returned damaged so this was sent as a backup. I couldn't have been happier with it though! I was worried about it being too tight (I am b/n a 0 and 2 usually, but the dress was perfect). At 5'9, the L was also long enough. I got so many compliments on this dress, and I only wore pearls as an accessory - it was perfect. Highly recommend

Overall a great dress! Relatively comfortable, and flattering. Perfect for wedding on NYE!
Great dress overall. I felt it ran a little small, at least compared to casual dresses (such a j.crew, where I always wear a 2, but this dress I wore a 4). I wore a tape on bra, but wouldn't have needed one. I'm 5'6" and 125lbs. Perfect length with a 2-3 inch heel. One of the dresses I received seemed very well worn. A bit of fraying and slightly faded, so I'm glad it was the other size that fit me. Seems like this particular dress should be taken out of circulation. Also, I was missing the zipper tie for sending the dress back.

I felt absolutely beautiful!
I actually ordered a different dress and it didn't get delivered on time before I had to leave. RTR was absolutely awesome. Fortunately the event I was going to was outside of NYC and I have a relative that lives in the city. I e-mailed RTR and told them the dilemma and that I needed a dress to wear in two days. They told me about their showroom in NYC and said I could come in a pick out a new dress with no cost, AND they gave me $100 store credit because of all the issues. I tried on a few different dresses, and was iffy when I left with this one. As I was getting ready for the event, I felt a lot more confident with my decision. I got so many compliments that evening, and even though I didn't have the dress I ordered, I was more than satisfied with the customer service and quality of the dress.

Gorgeous. I felt like a movie star in a designer dress.
This dress fit perfectly. I felt pretty and modern in it. I'm 5'10" and the 12L was a little short, but what's a tall gal to do? It was comfortable but doesn't have any give.

The perfect dress for an hourglass figure!
This dress is awesome- it is fitted at the hips so I wore a size 14L as opposed to regular size 12...also if you are taller than 5'7 you will definitely need the longer length....Can also wear a normal strapless bra with a pin- since the back is slightly lower...I received so many compliments on this dress, if you are an hourglass shape this is the dress for you!

I absolutely love this dress. The dress is very elegant and the lace adds a softness. Unfortunately the dress wasn't forgiving in the mid section and I didn't feel comfortable wearing it. I'd love to rent this again when I get in better shape. It makes your butt look awesome though!

I felt like such a princess in this dress for my senior Prom and got ALOT of compliments.
Not many dresses fit me well with my body type and weight and with that being said I had actually ordered multiple dresses from RTR and I actually got this dress and a couple of others THE MORNING OF!!! You can imagine who nerve wrecking that would be the morning of senior prom but the second I put this dress on, it fit me perfectly. It shaped my stomach well and there wasn't a lot of the back that was out which was perfect because of my skin problems. If I could've bought this dress, full price or not, I would because thats how well it fit.

Gorgeous dress fits true to size.
Comes off a little more navy than black because of the nude lining underneath. It will keep you warm that is for sure- it's thickly lined. You could definitely tell this dress had been worn a lot though- the back lace was fraying and not as nice as it could have been. A little stressful because the dress I really wanted ended up not being returned on time, but this second choice worked out great. Overall, fairly happy with the choice to use RTR and will probably use them again.

Sophisticated and beautiful!
This dress is chic, elegant and still sexy! The lace is beautiful and the keyhole back is so cute! I got compliments all night long. I did have to wear flats if I and I'm 5'6.5', but I was totally fine with that. I'm a true size 12 on the top and between a 12 and 14 on the bottom and the dress still fit! (With spanx- as per usual). This dress is great for curvy girls and is very slimming!

Got a ton of compliments. This dress is much prettier in person than it is in the picture.
This dress is very figure flattering. I got the 14R and 16R. Both fit but I went large for comfort. Only small complaint is that the dry cleaning smell is a tad overpowering. Glad I had a day to hang it outside to air it out before wearing it.

Stunning back and classy!
The dress fit like a glove! I got complements all night on my dress. The original dress I ordered ended up not being available and they sent replacement dresses for me and also sent jewelry which completed my look. I have recommended RTR to everyone I know, I have had dozens of great experiences in the past 4 years of using RTR!

Simple elegance!
This dress is gorgeous! I wore this to a close friend's black tie wedding and received numerous comments. Considering how many other beautiful gowns were worn at this event, I was pleasantly surprised at what a hit the dress was! I wasn't sure if I was going to like the flare at the bottom of the dress but it was lovely. Normally, I wear a size 4 and ended up ordering a 4 and 6 regular just in case. The 4 fit well with the exception of the bust; I'm a 34D so it was a big too snug in that area so I wore the 6. I'm 5'5" and the regular length was perfect; however, if you're much taller than I am it may be a bit short if you plan to wear shoes with any sort of heel. I would highly recommend this dress!
RTR CustomerOctober 13, 2015
If you don't mind, how high were the shoes that you wore? I'm 5'6 and a 1/2 inches and planning on wearing 3in heels. Should I go for the longer length?

The dress was the perfect length for me with my 3 1/2 inch heels. I agree with the past reviews that this is a dress for the straight and narrow.

Great choice for a military ball that had a several "wardrobe guidelines".
I'm 5 ft 6.4 inches tall so I wasn't sure if I should get regular or long. Also, I was nervous because the event was on a boat and I didn't want to get tripped up. I requested the 12 long and 14 regular. The 14 was short and loose while the 12 fit like glove. There were some stray threads from previous wear which I cut off. I was given several guidelines for what I could wear as a guest for this particular military ball. This dress was conservative enough and I felt very comfortable with my choice.

Loved the dress for my daughter's prom. Everything was perfect if I had to complain it would be that the dress was a little short for her 5'10" height with heels. With flats it fit perfect. She looked amazing!

This dress was mailed to me at my hotel on the day of my event! Thanks, RR!
After a long hunt for a dress and many falling through, this one worked really well for me. It was a nice length, nice shape, and beautiful dress. It was a little big in the back and at the top because there were no smaller sizes when I ordered and I had not tried it on before that evening. I paired it with a nice RR necklace and it gave me a wonderful evening!

The dress was beautiful and I received compliments all night and throughout the following week.
I am 5'0 and wore cowboy boots, so the dress was long. I used hem tape, and it worked great. Wearing heels would have solved the problem. Additionally, the dress was a little large in the shoulders. I had to overlap the back connections.

I wore this gown to a black tie function in the entertainment industry.
Dress was great. It was very comfortable and fit true to size. Length was perfect with 3 inch heels. I am 5'4" tall and weigh 145 pounds. I wore a sheer black shawl to complete the look and cover the back opening a bit.

Great Dress....SUPER sexy and comfortable!
LOVED this dress! This was not my first, second, or even third choice....but I am so glad it was sent to me! The fit was perfect! The dress runs pretty true to size and is form fitting but very comfortable! It is very sexy and the cut out in the back is a great detail! Received so many compliments on this dress and would definitely recommend! Also, this was my first experience with RTR and couldn't say enough good things....great customer service, super friendly and very accommodating after my first choice dress did not fit!

I was stopped and complimented on my dress all night!!
This was actually a back up dress that RTR sent me because they didn't have the right size in the dress I ordered but it ended up being better I think!!! The fit was great, not to tight but still has the form fitting aspect. It did bunch up a little bit around my hips as I walked but I have a fuller bottom half than I do upper so I tend to have that problem with most dresses. I could dance and sit comfortably. I received so many compliments about the dress and I felt amazing in it!!! It is a fantastic dress!!!

This dress is gorgeous! Makes you feel like a million bucks.
I normally wear a size 4. This 4 fit like a glove but it was very flattering. If you are wearing heels and are over 5'6" you definitely want the longer length.
RTR CustomerOctober 13, 2015
do you mind if I ask how tall you are? I'm about five six and a half and planned on wearing 2.5 - 3" heels, you recommend the longer length?

Just okay...
Honestly, I just was not blown away by this dress. I felt that it ran small, especially in the hips. Also, there are three strange corset-like stripes on the front torso that look almost like a mistake. Lastly, had the dress been a flattering fit on me, it still would have been far too short on my 5'10" frame. I would not rent this dress again.

The dress is beautiful and I was the center of attention!
The dress fit me perfectly. The size 8 fit, but I went with the size 10R because it was a little more comfortable. I am a 34D+ so the 10R gave me that extra room up top. I wore 4 inch heels and the dress stopped perfectly at my toes. I am 5'2 if that helps those reading this. The waist area is fitted giving this simple dress an added flare. I like things that are classy, elegant, and simple (with a little bit of sexy). This dress was just that. I have zero complaints about this dress or the process of receiving this dress. It was my first experience with RTR and it will not be my last.

Classy and sexy.
LOVED this dress. I am 5'6'' and I wore 4'' heels and the long size was perrrrfect. Definitely order the long if you're planning on wearing a nice size heel. It was comfortable to dance in for a long time. The detail in the back is amazing-plan on wearing your hair up! I wore this pre-baby, but if I wore it again (now postpartum) I would recommend spanx as this was tight around my abdomen.

Great Dress, Beware of Length
As a previous (and happy) RTR customer, I was excited to use the service again for a black tie company Christmas party. This was my second choice dress. This dress WAY too short with the smallest heels I own (I'm 5'8"), despite ordering both in LONG. RTR was great shipped me my next 3 choices overnight....in the wrong size. All three dresses were a 4L, instead of a 6L. I was able to squeeze into one of the 3 options, and it was my least favorite. I might rent again in the future, but will order in an extreme amount of time in advance. This is was not my ideal experience.

I wore this for a military ball. I had been looking for something classic and form fitting. Received tons of compliments on this dress. The lace was beautiful and dress fit like a glove. I had to wear 4 1/2 inch heels. I'm 5'2 and it was just a tad long. But I wasn't tripping on it all so length was ok.

Perfect fit, great for a black tie wedding
This was my back-up dress for a black tie Winter wedding. The dress was simple but fit perfectly and looked great next to a tuxedo. It is lined with the softest satin that felt great again the skin. I am normally a size 4, and wore a 4L which fit great. The length was perfect with 3" heels. I would recommend for anyone searching for a classic looking, flattering dress.

A cousin who NEVER compliments me told me I looked "like a million bucks" in this dress.
Can run a bit long but I had tall heels. I love the silhouette but the striping in the front definitely shows more in pictures with flash. I would buy this dress if I could. I got a few extra days for New Year's so I ended up wearing it to a party too!

My boyfriends reaction when I came out in the dress
This was the first time I tried rent the runway and I was amazed... I got a ton of compliments and felt so confident and beautiful. The lace was so elegant and the dress was in great condition. I would absolutely recommend this dress. I ended up getting a backless bra and it was perfect. The dress was very true to size. Bravo."
