Loved this dress! Elegant and classy!
I had lots of compliments on the this dress. It was a little snug in the bust, which I expected for a form fitting gown.

Wore this to a fundraiser, and got so many compliments! It was unbelievably gorgeous!
The bust fit a little tightly. Thank goodness I ordered the long because with even a 3" heel, it hit right at the top of my toe. I would definitely rent this dress again for another formal event.

I felt like royalty in this dress!
This dress was made beautifully! Just putting it on made me feel fabulous. I really did not want to purchase a long dress as I don't go to that many formal events so Rent the Runway was just the ticket for me. I loved that I could get so much information about the fit and style prior to deciding which dress to order. I am very short (a little less then 5'2") so I was very concerned about the length. I was able to zero in on dresses that were good on petite or shorter ladies. They shipped the dress right as scheduled and the dress was clean and fit like a glove!

Everyone complimented my dress all night! The lace detail was gorgeous & the mermaid style was sexy
Fit was a little snug but you don't want it big or else it wouldn't hug your curves. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because the zipper was kind of tricky and got stuck on the lining. I LOVE this gown!

Fits small. Definitely go a size up and order in the longer length!
This was a gorgeous dress that I rented as an extra style, and didn't end up wearing due to sizing problems (the other dress I rented looked and fit better). The overall fit seemed small to me, especially compared to the other similar styled dress in the same size (Nicole Miller Cordelia Gown). I could have made this work if I didn't have an other option, but my main problem with the dress was the length. I am only 5' 3" and very rarely have problems with dresses being too short....not the case with this one. There is no way I could have worn any type of shoe other than flats with this dress due to the strangely short length. I would definitely recommend this dress to others but would encourage them, especially if they are curvy or have an hourglass type figure and intend on wearing heels, to go up a size from your normal size and to order the longer length! Otherwise, this is a gorgeous dress that I would rent again in a different size!

Amazing Customer Service/Dress runs SMALL
I normally wear between a 12-14 long length gown. I can typically squeeze into a 12 but a 14 is more comfortable. In the case of this dress, I could barely get the 14L down over my hips. Once I got it on, I definitely couldn't get it zipped and it was 2 inches off the ground before I even put shoes on. I'm 5'8", so not super tall, and this was supposed to be the long length gown. I really wonder if the sizing was incorrect. I've read similar reviews about this same gown as well. On the other hand, RTR customer service is AMAZING. They go over and beyond to make the customer happy!

Gala dress
I rented this dress for a gala and it was beautiful. I loved the fabric. My only issue with this dress was the fit. There is almost no stretch at all to the fabric so it was really tight on my hips, but really loose on the top. I had to wear Spanx to get the dress on and double sided tape to keep the top from hanging down so I felt pretty uncomfortable all night. The length was good with some heels which is good because I'm really short.

A little itchy but otherwise a beautiful dress which fits true to size. Great for a black tie wedding.

Super easy 1st RTR experience!
Fit was true to size! I wore a 6R. It fit perfect! I did use double- sided fashion tape to hold up the layer of fabric under the lace since it was a bit too long, but surprisingly, being only 5'3"-5'4" wearing 3 inch heels worked perfect! Super easy 1st time RTR that was a great experience for this working mom who did not have time to shop for a dress for a formal wedding I attended!

Like a glove!
This was my first experience with RTR, and it created a return customer, for sure! My husband is chairman of the board for his industry association and we had to attend an awards ceremony. I have a slight hourglass figure and the dress fit me perfectly. I received so many compliments! As we were walking through the resort, a stranger stopped me specifically to tell me how beautiful my dress was. I would recommend the long if you're my height and like the dress to skim the ground with heels. Regular would have been too short for me. I'm so excited to use this service again. Thanks, RTR!

Don't bother if you're over 5'8!
I was SO excited to get this beautiful dress. I tried it on and was crushed when I realized even the 'long' length was mid-calf. It looked ridiculous. I'm 5'11" so within the recommend range for the long length and it was far, far too short. No photos because of how embarrassing I looked in this.

I felt like a star and got lots of compliments.
The description was very helpful in picking the right sizes. The dress was comfortable, it was easy to move around and dance. The 6 was tight for my bust, so I wore the 8.

Beautiful dress!!! Got tons of compliments!
fit a little snug but was comfortable...very thick and heavy dress so it was a little warm for summer wedding but overall i was fine and loved it. Im only 5'4 but after reading others reviews saying it was short I ordered the long one and so happy I did!!! I wore 4 inch heels and the dress was just touching my foot so still not floor length.

Beautiful Gown!
I'm a boudoir and contemporary glamour portrait photographer, and I rented this gown for my client to wear as her first outfit. She is 25 years old, pear shaped, 5'7", and 36B. To add more drama to the dress, I added a tulle skirt at the bottom to give it an over-the-top mermaid look. There was not a lot of give in this dress--she fit into the 10 but it was tight, so we went with the 12 for a perfect fit.

Sexy, flattering dress
This dress hugs you in all the right places. It's runs a bit small. I ordered 0R and 2R and wore the 2. It was a little loose but comfy. It may be short for the average woman. I am 5'2" and wore 3inch heels and the length was perfect on me.

Beautiful dress and comfortable fit.
I'm a size 8 but ordered the 10 due to my 34G bust size. I could wear my regular bra with his dress. Once I slipped the dress on it was very comfortable. The zipper was a little difficult but it's on the side so you can do it yourself as opposed to the rear of the dress. The fit is slimming with a beautiful trumpet bottom. I fit easily into the 10 with a little extra room. The lace fabric is ruched along the bodice and very slimming. The dress is a little short with 4 inch heels so I opted for a lower 3 inch heel which was more comfortable anyway (I'm 5'3"). Rent this dress if you're petite, large busted and curvy, you won't regret it! Great service with RTR!

So many compliments!
Look: I wore this for my 1930s 30th birthday bash. I received so many compliments from strangers and I felt like a million dollars. Fit: I'm pretty curvy and so while the 6 fit me better up top, it did nothing for my butt (aka I could hardly get into it!) so I wore the 8. It was a little large up top, but I wore a sticky bra that gave me some cleavage and it was alright! Also I was so comfortable that I was able to dance all night. So definitely size up! I didn't NEED to wear spanx around my midsection, but I did and I felt that it gave me that extra something. Length: it is short. I'm 5'3. It just barely graced the floor in my super dressy black gladiator sandals. No one could really see my shoes and when they did, it complimented then look. But keep that in mind if you're wearing heels! I actually preferred it being a bit short because for once I didn't have to hold a dress up to wear it. I had a great time in this dress!

Beautiful dress, lots of compliments.
Some residue on the lace from the previous wearer, other than that, it was true to size. Zipper was a bit difficult, as mentioned by other reviewers. The material is a bit thick, particularly around the waist, so not as slimming as I had hoped. Overall true to pictures and reviews and I would rent again!

Beautiful
I rented this dress for a black tie wedding and it was perfect. I had a baby 2 1/2 months ago so am very self conscious about my big boobs (breastfeeding) and the extra weight in my midsection. This dress was incredibly flattering in both places. The lacy fabric was very forgiving and comfortable. My only complaint was that with my usual 4 inch wedding shoes, it was actually too short. I'm 5'2 and was able to wear this dress with flats, so if you're tall (or even average height and planning to wear heels) you might want to opt for the long. Otherwise, I loved it and got plenty of compliments throughout the night! Also for reference my profile is not accurate with my current postpartum stats. Bra size 32DD+ ; weight 128. Size 6 is probably my accurate current size.

Dress hugged me in all the right places but was a few inches to short to wear with heels. Would order again if it comes in 6L though!

Perfect for Firefighter's Ball!
I LOVED this dress from the moment I saw it! I normally wear a size 10 in jeans but an 8 in dresses. This dress is very fitted and the 10 barely fit. I'd definitely go up a size if you are curvy in the least. It was also barely long enough and I had on flats. If you are any taller than 5'4" you will need the long. The reviews mentioned the zipper being terrible and I would agree! You will need someone else to fight the side zipper for you. Overall I loved the dress and would definitely wear it again. Fun experience with my first RTR!

Beautiful and Elegant!!
The dress fit true to size. I ordered a size 2R and 4R. The 4R was a little snug and the top was a little loose but overall the dress was very beautiful and I enjoyed wearing it. I am 5' 2" , 134 lbs and wore 2" heels with the dress and it was just the right length to where it did not drag on the ground.

30 birthday for a friend.
Loved this dress, this was my first formal event post baby, and I was a little worried about hiding the baby belly, but this dress did a great job. Careful the top is low, but it isn't going to move on you. One caveat, I received two sizes, but the larger size was obviously altered, and the bottom of the skirt was a different material than the top. Thankfully I could squeeze into the smaller size!

Very elegant
I ended up wearing a different dress but this dress was very nice as well ! The material was thick and good quality. However, not much room to grow in the dress as its true to size and the zipper is on the side. Also, the bottom portion of the dress is a lot puffier and bigger than in photos.

Was my first pick but ended up not wearing
I am typically and 8, this dress ran small through the waist and hips and then was way way way too big in the top. With how this dress fit I would have been a 10 in the bottom part and a 6 in the bust for it to fit well. Length was on the short side, touched tops of my feet with no shoes on. Definitely not floor length with heels. Material was on the scratchy side and the zipper was extremely difficult to get up.

One of my favorite dresses ever
I wore this to a formal September wedding after my original dress wasn't available. I'm really glad I got this one instead! I absolutely loved it and got infinite compliments from male and female guests alike. It's glamorous, fit perfectly, classy and sexy. The Regular is the perfect length for shorter girls (under 5'4"-5'5" I would say). I'm obsessed with this dress and mulling about when I can rent it again. The fabric and cut are very flattering. It's so pretty and such good quality that I think this dress in white could actually be a wedding dress. The only "negative" I can think of is it's not stretchy so be careful about sizing. Also, it is pretty hot so I wouldn't wear this in the summer. Otherwise - go for it!

I wore this for the Marine Corps birthday ball in November and it was pretty perfect!
I loved this dress and received so many compliments - as a 5"2 person wearing 3" inch heels, the length was absolutely perfect - a first for me, but if I had to do it over again, I probably would have gone with the size 0, that I did not order! For the occasion, I think the size 2R was more appropriate, since it was not as form fitting as I normally would have liked, but it was just enough! i was skeptical of ordering the 0, but I'm not sure why! I am pretty small in my chest/collarbone area, so I had to use fashion tape to keep the top down flat on my chest, but it still looked beautiful. I would say this dress is true to size, but also on the verge of running large! All in all, 4.9/5 for sure!

This dress is wonderful for a formal event! Sexy, mature, but still respectable
I wore this dress for a formal event at my university. I recently lost 30 pounds (currently around 140 lbs) too so this dress did a great job of showing off my new body ;) It's very forgiving of extra belly bumps too so no worries. I ordered a size 8L, but ended up wearing the size 6L instead which was great and I could still move around in it. I wore a strapless bra (34DD) for the event, but I also tried the dress on with a regular bra, so you would be fine either way. As other commenters have mentioned, if you're taller than 5'6''/5'7'', order the long (L) size because it does ride up a bit. I was a bit worry about this (I'm 5'7''), but it turned out to be fine and I work 2-3 inch block heels with it. My only con is that the zipper broke when I was sitting in it, so we careful if you're putting too much pressure on the dress when sitting. Overall, I would highly recommend this purchase! Body profile if this helps: 5'7'', 140 lbs, 34DD
