I wore this gown to a memorial gala fundraiser which I hosted.

Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
The gown is absolutely beautiful and it fits like a glove. I received so many compliments on how well it fit and how gorgeous it was. It arrived in immaculate condition and I had no issues with this dress. It's one-of-a-kind and I can guarantee you will be satisfied with this stunning gown. I highly recommend this rental and if you are tall and plan to wear heels, I also recommend you opting for the LONG in your respective size.

Wore this stunning gown to an Old Hollywood party. The gorgeous back adds the perfect "wow" factor

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size

Very glamorous gown for when you want to make an entrance. The bottom half is very big and heavy so not ideal for dancing, but gorgeous for a cocktail party or dinner. Probably could have gone one more size up as it's a bit right around the waist.

Didn't get to wear this. I am very tall, and the long just wasn't long enough. Beautiful and unique dress though. Probably perfect if I were 5'8". In general though, the sizing seems correct. Rent the runway issued me a credit, and I am looking forward to trying again. Love the idea of renting a gown instead of buying.

Simple elegance

Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this gown to a black tie gala. I normally wear a size 4L, but sized up to a 6L, as the 4 was a little tight around my ribcage and I wanted to breathe. People who I have never met came across the room to compliment the dress. I was comfortable and elegant all night. This was a replacement dress, as the one I reserved was retired out because of damage and I was a little nervous that all the bunching on the back would be too over the top, but it wasn't. It was amazing. Highly recommend!!

Couldn't wear it because it made me look too big.

Size worn: 12L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
The photo is not the same as the actual dress. The photo looks like it is half black and half white, however, there are white panels on either side that would make anyone look too wide and hippy. Customer service was very gracious with my return.

Once in a lifetime event

Size worn: 10R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
It's a VERY heavy dress and looks like a $10k dress. The dress looks as if it could be satin but it isn't and the tail is not just draping- there are about 5 yards of fabric e tail alone. The neckline is very high and run big on top, narrow through the hips. I was advised to get a size up so I got 10 with a 12 backup but couldn't move in the 10 (hips) and swam on top in the 12. The cut in the back is so low you can't wear a bra. Certain to turn heads, this is good for tall, big busted, small hipped ladies who will be standing all night.

Amazing gown for the red carpet. Tons of compliments!! Classic, and on trend with black & white.

Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
This was my first time ordering. Arrived on time, easy and painless. The 8L fit better than the 6L. I am 39 1/2 in the hips. A bit snug but was standing most of the night anyway. This is NOT the dress to sit for long periods of time or if you are going to eat a big dinner. A "seen and be seen" in gown. Photographed beautifully and I got tons of compliments on the dress. Those with a smaller bust may need some padding.

This dress was a bit tight in the hip area. They sent me another dress overnite.

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I have to say the customer service was outstanding. I called with the problem if the dress being a bit small. Usually size ten is big on me but who knows. Clothes don't always lie. Haha. The stylist was so awesome with helping me pick a new dress in the style that I wanted. I am very curvy. If you have a booty this dress may be snug in the booty. There is absolutely no give in this dress. I am a 36 DDD and the chest area fit great. But I would have needed some kind of backless bra. The dress was snug enuf to help keep it place.wish I had the for site to order size ten. But oh well. My next dress will be just as awesome. I do have long legs for my height and barefoot the dress trailed the floor. Plenty of room for a nice pair of heels. Hope this review helps.

This was for a formal wedding; I had to buy a dress- FAST- the day before!

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress looks so beautiful in the photo- unfortunately I had to send it back- didn't even try it on. If you have the time to really steam it, it might work, but it was delivered to my hotel and it was not in great condition. I was a little more than surprised at the fabric also- it looks like satin in the picture, but it was more like a "paperlike" fabric. Hard to believe the designer made this - could have been so much nicer!

Fit perfectly. Women and men alike complimented me in the dress all evening long. Several even reached out to touch it. There were a couple of draw backs. The ribbing metal on one side was out and moved against my skin and there was a string from the lining that was hanging. Otherwise, the dress was a hit.

Being unable to zip it is something I won't soon forget, lol. :0)

Size worn: NONE
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I normally wear a size 2 in gowns, sometimes a 4 depending on the designer and cut. This dress is cut so slim in the hips I could not get the 2 on. The 4 was my backup size, but it was also way too tight (which is very unusual for me). Also I am very tall & narrow and had the 4L not been too tight, it still would have been shorter than I would have wanted (I.e. would had to have worn flats). Such a shame because the gown is clearly well made and the fabric/back train is absolutely beautiful...if you do manage to find a size that fits, have a steamer or something on hand because it arrives uber wrinkled.

Size 4 was very tight/hard to sit in (but looked great. Size 6 looked like a trash bag on my body). Dress hugs the body and curves. Received a lot of compliments from random women at the wedding. Wore tape on bra and tights (so I could breathe). 4 stars due to material being on the cheap side.

Pretty dress, tight in hips, material wrinkled

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This is a very pretty dress. Unfortunately I was not able to wear it. I usually wear a 4 on top and 6/8 on the bottom. In order to fit it over my hips and backside I would have had to wear the 8. That meant the top was too big and gaped/proofed out around the arms. Also, the dress doesn't really accentuate your waist if you have hips that require wearing a larger size. (I wonder if a belt would help with that?) The material also looked wrinkly. I didn't try to steam it though because I did not end up wearing the dress. The dress would look better on a person who is more straight up and down. Wearing 5" heels the dress just skimmed the ground - I'm 5'3". It is a glamorous, old Hollywood, dress though. I wish I could have worn it.

I wore this dress to a black tie wedding. It was definitely a head turner! I felt very couture!

Size worn: 12L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
If you are wearing this dress to a wedding, I would not wear it to the church. I would change into it before the reception so the dress is fresh and crisp upon entrance since it does wrinkle around the hips after you sit down. My husband and family loved this dress. I would absolutely wear it again! I am 5'7 and had to order the long so that the dress hit the floor with my heels on. I ordered a size 12 because of my "bubble butt" and it fit well. Even though it's mermaid, the peacock affect in the back covers up the bubble but so you just see your hips in the front. Very flattering! I felt amazing!

This was my back up dress for a black tie wedding in NYC, it was so beautiful on me but the other dress I chose was just a bit more sophisticated/ age appropriate. I would absolutely recommend this beautiful dress, the fabric was so substantial and the low back/ dramatic back ruffle was perfect!

Beautiful dress

Size worn: 12L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress is beautiful. A bit tight around the hips though. A bit of the lining close to the zipper area was a bit ripped but nothing that would affect the way the dress looks. One of the wires of the top gives a pinching feel. It's a good thing I ordered it long because I'm 5'10" and that way I could wear heels. This was my main choice dress.

Goods: elegant, form-fitting, show-stopping train Bads: looks wrinkled no matter how much ironing one does, heavy (but I expected that), there were several interior tears, one of which prevented the zipper from going all the way up

Fit true to size. I'm 5'6" and wore the long version which was perfect with my heels. I normally wear a size 6 in most street clothes, but an 8 in designer clothes. I got both the 6L and the 8L. The 6L fit, but I opted for the 8L so the dress skimmed a little more. I absolutely LOVED this dress!

If you have hips or a butt...i wouldn't recommend this dress

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I am definitely an hour glass figure and have fuller hips and booty...but I am pretty much always a 4 or a 6. The 6 of this wouldn't even BEGIN to fit over my hips and butt. I probably would have gone up to an 8 or 10 to make this dress work. It's gorgeous...it just might be more for straight and narrow ladies :)

Amazing dress that is remembered

Size worn: 0L
Rented for: Formal Affair
I loved the dress! I wanted to get a 0R, but it was not available, so I ended up wearing 0L. Strangely, it was the same length as 2R. With 4" heels it worked. The fabric is very heavy and it does need thorough steaming, as other reviewers mentioned, but it looks stunning. I wore it to a Gala at National Geographic, was complimented all night and even a few times at other events weeks later people came up to me asking: "are you the girl that wore that dress?" Felt great )

Heavyweight & makes you feel sexy instead of cute!

Size worn: 6R
Rented for: Formal Affair
If you're tired of people saying you're "cute" instead of "sexy," this is an excellent dress to fix that. It will give you womanly curves. Some cons: the fabric doesn't age well and the dress is best for people who have slight hips and want to create the illusion of curves rather than people who actually have curves (so you don't have to artificially size up and ruin the fit up top). Also best for standing, not sitting. And also not recommended for going for a run.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented this as my backup dress and it was lovely, but I normally wear a 4P and couldn't zip this 6P past my hips. It was seriously that tight! The material has NO give at all, so I couldn't have possibly worn it. Luckily, my first pick fit great, so there were no worries, but this dress would have been a stunner in a larger size.

Beautiful gown. Exactly what I wanted.

Size worn: NONE
Rented for: Formal Affair
Unfortunately I was not able to wear this because it was too tight in the hips. The 4L would have fit perfectly. The length was just right Maybe next time. (The only reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 is that I couldn't wear it.)
