Loved the dress and received great compliments.
It is a little tight around the rib cage.

Pretty color
It was ok. The lace made it seem home sewn. The zippers are always an issue with RTR but it looks good in the photos.

The detail of the dress was amazing.
Great pink colored lace, very unique. Wore it for a Black Tie Wedding, very comfortable.
JaimeApril 16, 2013
Kimberly, How high of heels did you have to wear with this dress? I am also 5'3" and want to wear it to a black tie wedding, but I'm concerned about having to wear sky high heels!
KimberlyMay 3, 2013
Hi Jamie! So I love heels. I had to look it up but my heels were about 4 3/4" and the hem just skirted the floor. Hope that helps!
ChelseaMay 6, 2013
Kimberly! This dress looks wonderful on you! I too am a 32D+ and it looks as though we have similar body types. I'm 5'7 and 16, and weigh around 110, so based on what you know from wearing it, do you think that a 2R would be the right choice for me as well? Thanks for the picture and info! Super helpful.
KimberlyMay 6, 2013
Hi Chelsea! I'm 5'3 and 125 and it fit like a glove on me. I ordered the 4R and 2R and decided the 2R fit better around the abdomen/waist area. But I did have to go without a bra to be able to zip the top portion. I felt well supported and didn't have to pull the dress up all night. Hope that helps!

The color was very pretty
I thought it was a little narrow on my hips, but besides that, it is a pretty dress
mahsaApril 25, 2013
you look beautiful! So did it feel like it was falling off at all? and can you get away with not wearing a bra (im a 34 b)
LeahMay 5, 2013
I didn't think it felt like it was falling off. The hips were pretty tight, so the overall dress stayed up on it's own and I didn't have to worry about pulling it up constantly. Hope this can help you out a bit!

Even though this dress didn't quite fit, RTR helped me find another dress that did fit!
I ordered this dress but it didnt't quite fit in the hips. It was a little loose. The dress itself was really pretty for a trumpet shaped dress. The color was exactly how it looks in the picture. I think this dress would look awesome on a girl with more curves though.

This dress is even more beautiful in person. Quality and attention to detail is exceptional.
This gorgeous dress was for our daughters first beauty pageant. We were thrilled with how it looked on her and she felt amazing in it! We had so many compliments on the dress, especially regarding the lace overlay - the attention to detail is perfect. One little note - the upper part of the dress was a little large and we possibly could have gone down 1 size to help with that. Our experience with RTR has been incredible and would recommend (already have) this site to everyone!

The dress was PERFECT!
The dress was so different from every other dress at prom. I got so many compliments! The dress fit very true to size, I wear a 2 and it fit me perfectly in the waist but was a little snug around me hips and butt because they're a little larger. I'm 5'11 so I ordered a 2L and I was able to wear 1 inch heels without my toes showing. The color is gorgeous and the lace design is so pretty, its such a cute, girly dress.

the fit was perfect, I was afraid the top would be too big, but it was just perfect all the way to the bottom

Awesome dress, I had the wrong body type
This dress is gorgeous and elegant, but as I found out, you have to have the right figure for it! I am short with a small waist and wide hips. The dress fit so that it looked loose in my waist and super tight on my thighs. It just wasn't right for me, but I would so reccomend it for someone with a different body type!

It was simply amazing.
The dress runs a little loose around the waist and bust, but is tight at the hips. Definitely get a size down. It simply perfect, the lace overlay has amazing detail and I was one of the best dressed people at prom. It photographs so well and you see all the detail in every photo.

Fortunately I opted for ordering a back-up dress.
I'm 5'7" and have a long torso, so I ordered the long length of this dress. The hips of the dress hit about 1.5" above my actual hips, throwing off the whole fit of the rest of the dress. It was disappointing because it's a super-cute dress, and I had planned my accessories around it. The fit-and-flare styling is attractive and feels good on. The bodice of the dress was a really good fit, and the length would have been good with my 3"-4" heels that I would have worn with it. The dress is really well made and arrived in good condition, with just minimal staining/wear on the hem. Not a bad experience though, because I ended up loving my back-up dress.

This was a gorgeous dress. Beautiful color. Very flattering.
The fit was tight through the bust but still worked. The problem was that the boning came through the top and made it unwearable. Which was too bad because it looked so elegant

Simplicity made it a stand-out dress
It was lose around my midsection so I ended up belting it. It did not hug my body like i wish it did. I wore flats with the dress but could have possibly worn 2-3 inch heels and still have it touch the ground. Very nice detail and color was just like the picture. It worked out well in the end but I was not in love with the dress.

Any reason to get dressed up....
I wore this dress for a photo shoot to hep out a friend practicing lighting with a new lens (yes I realize I am not a model), but I owed him one. The dress fit perfectly, the color was perfect for Summer, and the lace texture is even better in person. I recommend this dress 100%.

The only thing I would say when renting this dress is rent your normal size and a size down. This is what I had to do and it worked for me!! Normal size is 6 and I wore a 4

Too Small/Short for Me
Sadly, this was my backup choice and it didn't fit. Even though I got the long, it would have been far too short. And that was before I even put heels on! Such a pretty pink though!

Kind of Prom
This was not the dress that I selected. They sent it to me because the backup size in my original dress [an elegant, sexy, tight pink gown] was unavailable, so they sent me this as the backup, in 2 sizes. Commendable for customer service and compensating for the situation, but this was just too prom for me. It also fit too large at the waist/hips. I decided to wear it as a slightly more conservative version to the church ceremony then switch to the sexy (slightly too tight) original dress for the reception.It's also long, even in 4" heels for me at 5'1".
RTR CustomerMay 10, 2014
it looks kind of tight under your bottom, how did you get this kind of mermaid look ?
TLCMay 12, 2014
I didn't do anything differently. Maybe it's the angle of the photo. And I have more of a booty than the model..?

Really Magical! (Don't let your hips lie!)
The dress was one I fell in love with instantly. I chose to wear it to our New Year's gala at the Magic Castle in Hollywood, a very strict & formal affair. I ordered both a 2L & 4L since I usually wear 6+ inch heels. The two was a perfect fit in the waist. However, the lace design used to accent the hips sat much too high, apparently everyone who is a size 2 is short. The bust of the 2 was much too snug and sitting in that dress was a disaster. I opted to wear the 4 even though while the hip design sat on my hips correctly, it was not nearly as form fitted as I would have hoped. Word to the wise, while the fit may not be as tight to the body as pictured, the trumpet style bottom and intricately designed hips give a flattering hourglass shape. Even though I felt the dress maybe a bit baggy, everyone: EVERYONE LOVED the way it looked. All night my boyfriend and I were stopped to be told how "Captivating" and "Gorgeous" it was.

Blush and Bashful
This is a beautiful, artistic dress. It is definitely fitted around the midsection so don't rent it if you're confident in that area. The other thing I will say is that it is PINK--the scene in Steel Magnolias where the woman says her wedding colors are "blush and bashful" and her mother says "her colors are pink and pink" definitely comes to mind. I love pink, so I was fine with it, but it is more pink than it looked on my browser. But I loved it and I would rent it again.

Beautiful dress. Did not fit. Size 2 was too small. Size 4 was too big.
I ordered my usual 2 and a backup 4. The two was wayyyy to small for me, and the 4 fit, but had this odd pouch-y stomach thing going on that was not flattering at all. This was my first no go when it comes to a dress rental. Everything else I have ordered has always fit perfectly. This one seems to be stretched out a little too much though. Rent the Runway was GREAT and was ready to overnight me a dress I could wear just in time for my event. CUSTOMER SERVICE is FABULOUS!!!

Great dress-- love the color!
I was in between the 6 & 8 and decided to wear the 8. The 6 was really tight over my hips because the fabric does not give at all but the 8 was a little baggy in places.

It was fun, I love the bold color and the quality of the lace / details. I love the curves and flattering git. It is a long dress. I am 5'3' and the dress was long, even with some of my tallest heels. It worked out for the night.

I wore this for prom my junior year. I loved it.
I was worried about two things when renting this dress: 1. That it was shipping the day before my prom and 2. That it wouldn't be long enough. The shipping was great and it was just long enough. I'm 5'11" so I got it in a size 8 Long. As you can see in the photo is was about an inch or two off the ground with heels, but when I took off my shoes for dancing it was the perfect length.

Did not get to wear it. Rented this second dress for my daughter. It was too big for her.
A beautiful well made dress. Needed a size smaller for my daughter. Did not get to wear. Did not get to try on until the night of Day 2 because of a back injury I had. Returning it prior to the event on 4/12 PM. Could not get pickup or to UPS store prior due to injury.

I rented this dress for my senior prom & unfortunately was very disappointed.
This dress runs very large. I usually wear a size 4 comfortably. This dress literally fell off my body. The material also look somewhat cheap, for how expensive the retail price is. I do love Rent The Runway, but I do not recommend this dress!

Vintage event: wasn't perfect but I'll take it
The pros: the color of the dress is beautiful and the bottom is stunning. The cons: the dress slipped in the back showing my bra and by the end of the night, the tatas were really out of the top. I had to literally push everything back in towards the end of the night. The bodice is really tight so it literally forced my cleavage out through the top. Not my best rental for that reason. It was my back up dress and I really didn't like my original dress at all so that is how I ended up wearing it. I did feel like it fit the bill for vintage.

The dress was perfect for a formal wedding at the Ritz
fit was good but ran large in size. the support on the sides were ok, but when you sat down they were not flexible enough to make the dress comfortable. But all in all it was a nice dress great for the occasion I felt very pretty!

Impressed by the shipping and quality!
I was really excited to get this dress for prom. The color in the picture truly represents what the dress looks like in person. Pros: I got a 10L and wore 3 inch heels and the dress was definitely long enough. The fabric was beautiful and the color was divine! Cons: it ran kinda small in the bust. I had to use double sided tape to keep the dress up throughout the night. The dress was a tad worn up top (which made sense considering it was strapless and people often have to keep pulling it up all the time). The rubber strip was was around the bust of the dress to keep it in place kept rolling so the dress never lay perfectly in the back. Overall, I got a ton of compliments and everyone loved the dress! I would definitely RTR again!

Very classy and simple.
I rented this for my "Old South" themed sorority formal. At first I wasn't as wowed as I thought I would be with the dress, but after getting my tan and hair and make up done, I was in love! I ordered the 0L and 2L. The 0L was the one I wore, but it was a little tight through the hips/thighs. I tried the 2L on and it was huge for only being a size up. The 0L was also significantly shorter than the 2L even though they were only a size apart. Other than the length and slight tightness in hips/thighs it was a perfect fit! The dresses were also in really clean and in great shape.

I wore this dress to prom and it was a showstopper! The color was perfect &all my friends loved it!
The fit was great for me because I am on the taller side. Sadly I did not fill out the bust area but I didn't have to worry about pulling the dress up all night.

Stunning color!
I rented this dress for a "black tie optional" wedding. The dress was gorgeous! It was the perfect shade of pink. The detail of the lace was beautiful. I'm 5'6", approx. 120 lbs, with a 34C bust and I have small hips. It fit well in the bust and hips and was a little roomy in the belly. I got a 2L and 4L and I wore the 4L to fit my bust. The 2L probably would have bit my body better, but my bust wouldn't fit. I wore approx. 4.5"-5" heels and the dress was still an inch or two too long. I wish I had gotten the 4R, but from the description is was difficult to tell if it would have ended up being too short. I received a ton of compliments and I'm glad I got this dress because a lot of people wore dark colors and the dress really popped!. This was my fist experience with RTR and I didn't have any issues. I would definitely recommend this dress, as well as RTR.

Chrystal you look freakin AMAZING!! I am about the same size and shape as you, I am a size 4, very busty (I am also a C cup lol) and small hips/waist! Being busty did you have to keep puling it up or did you feel like you were going to pop out lol. Wear you able to wear a strapless bra with it? Finally its pretty form fitting, did you wear a thong with the dress, and was VPL an Issue. Thanks so much i hope I can rock this dress half as well as you did

This dress was not flattering
The dress was pretty but it seems someone not of a size 0 worn/tried on and stretched the dress out. Does not have any stretch in the dress, therefore, the material was stretched out. Luckily, RTR customer service saved the day and had a new dress we picked out sent the next day around noon in time for the wedding! That dress worked out so much better! Thanks RTR !
