Wasn't crazy about the material
The dress looked so pretty online, but when I saw it in person I didn't really like it. Needless to say, I didn't wear it to the party,m either. I believe this was the dress that didn't come on time.

Bought this dress from RTR and it's still in great condition. It's still a little long for me but I may just have it hemmed since I don't have to send it back!

The dress was gorgeous, but small on top.
The colors of the dress were beautiful. The length was great, but the top was very small. I'm not busty by any means, this dress was very small on top. I rented it for a wedding, wore it to the church, but was so uncomfortable, I changed and wore a back up dress to the reception. I received so many complements on it though. Very disappointed it didn't work out for me.

Beautiful dress!
The dress fit perfectly with the exception of the bust. The bust area runs very small. I could tell that it wasn't just me because the threading was pulled at the seams from previous wears. But, overall the dress was beautiful and received compliments from the time I pulled it out of the RTR package!

I received ENDLESS compliments on this dress!!
I needed a dress last minute for prom and once I saw this dress, I instantly fell in love! It came just in time and is great quality. It fit perfectly; however, it was hard to dance in. Because I'm short, I bought hem tape from RTR and hemmed the bottom to the length that felt comfortable. All in all, it is a PERFECT dress for any occasion!!!

I had the most colorful and unique dress at prom!
I ordered the 2R and 4R and the 2 fit perfectly! This dress is so beautiful and vibrant in person! It was kind of tight around the bust and has some pushup inserts in it. I found it falling throughout the night, but that could have been solved with some fashion tape. Great dress overall, I highly recommend it!

Since there was gold on the dress, I was able to make everything gold. Plus, loved the long!
Wonderful! Lots of compliments, etc. I especially loved the gold on it because I could make every part of the outfit go with it. May have been a tad long, but I'm pretty short and I wore 3-4 inch heels so it was fine! Loved being able to get the long dress at a reasonable price :)

Beautiful dress but couldn't keep it up on the dance floor
The dress has gorgeous fabric and flow and fit perfectly during the ceremony and dinner. But once the music and dancing started I couldn't keep it up. It kept falling down. I tried changing my bra, pinning it, and finally just put on a black sports bra. So I would recommend the dress as long as there is no serious dancing involved.

It was for my prom and it was absolutely beautiful. I looked like no one there thanks to RTR
I'm 5'3 and without heels this dress definitely touches the ground, so just keep that in mind. I would say I'm very curvy (hourglass) and this dress fit well while also complementing my shape. I'm 140 pounds with a 34d bust, ample amount of booty and the size 6 fit perfectly. Hugging my bust but flowy at the rest of the gown. It's a gorgeous dress.

Dreamy and polished flowy perfection.
A good review is better late than never. Right? Last year I needed a dress for a charity ball in NYC that evoked some island charm witout a too casual vibe. I paired it with some beaiful gold bubble and crystal Kate spade earrings from RTR and silk blue fabric butterflies from Etsy; the effect was just magical! I got loads of compliments that night and from a picture a friend snapped at the dinner, a date...that led to an engagement last month. Was it the dress? Maybe... but it sure didn't hurt! A note to other renters, this dress runs long but fits pretty true to size. The 10R was out when I rented so I got the 10L and thank goodness I got the 12R too as back up. The 10 fit perfectly except for the length. I am 5,5" and even with 4 inch platform shoes the dress was dragging. The 12R was pretty long but more managable, though big. I had to wear 2 strapless bras and the sticky tape to fill it up and keep it up, I normally am a 36C. All in all a fabulous experience and a lovely dress!

the 0 fit better than the 2 except for in the top so I ended up having to go with the 2 but it worked out! got lots of compliments!

I am very petite too and i am scared the size 2r will be too long on me. Was it very long on you?

Wore it for my cousins wedding and felt so glamorous!
Loved the dress. I was shocked when the sparkles turned out to be gold colored not silver, but it was still just as gorgeous. I had to go a size up because it ran small in the bust, however, it was a bit long, so I would recommend sizing up and going a bit shorter in the length. Even with heels I was dragging. I loved it though and everyone thought it was gorgeous !

i LOVED the dress
I wore this months ago and forgot to do a review! And I really relied on others for mine so I wanted to do the same. Unfortunately I cant say much about the exact fit, as it was a while ago. I do remember I got an 8 and a 10 and the 8 was too small. Im usually a 6 or 8 dress wise, but I have a large bust so sometimes that changes things. Its a beautiful dress and i felt gorgeous in it

Such an amazing site!
I got the extra length because I am very tall at 5'10 and wore one inch heels so I was not taller than my date. It didn't drag on the ground and was very easy to dance in. It has some gold flecks that catch the light very nicely. I suggest wearing gold jewlelery to compliment the gold flecks. Very nice qualtiy. Date should wear perinwinkle rather than blue to match.

It matches my personality perfectly. Everyone commented on how beautiful it was, and it was really comfortable. The long is actually really long. I'm 5'9'' and it was way longer than anticipated

This dress was a standout among a sea of Macys and Nordstroms dresses at my prom!
I wanted a dress that would be beautiful but comfortable for a night of pictures and dancing and whatever might happen later... I got tons of compliments and stood out from the crowd. The only issue was the dress tended to slide down, but thats more due to my body type than the dress.

Lovely dress!
I rented this dress to wear to a wedding... when I was 8 months pregnant! I normally wear a 2 and figured that since it looked roomy in the midsection I would probably be fine with a 4. I was wrong, however. I wish I would have ordered a 6. The 4 was just slightly uncomfortable and I knew I couldn't wear it an entire evening so I had to wear a dress that I alread had. If I had ordered the right size it would have been perfect.

Perfect dress for a summer wedding
For a fancier summer wedding, I wanted something different than the strapless, short dresses I usually wear. This dress was perfect because the long length dressed it up, but it was very colorful and fun at the same time. I ordered the 4L and 4R, and ended up wearing the 4R. Although it was slightly short with 4" heels on, I'm so glad I went with the shorter length because I ended up switching into flip flops halfway through the night anyway. I knew that would be the case when I decided to wear the shorter dress, so I didn't really mind that the dress didn't touch the floor in my heels. All in all I was so happy with the dress, and loved having the option of two different lengths. Would definitely recommend!

Runs small and long
I rented this dress for a destination wedding rehearsal dinner. Normally, I wear either a 10 or 12 dress size so I ordered the dress in both sizes. The 12 was so tight that I looked like Jessica Rabbit. Granted, I am a D cup but I was still dissapointed that I couldn't wear the dress. Also, I am 5'5" and I ordered a regular length and it was a bit long. If I were to wear heels it probably would have been OK but I was going to wear it with flats so it would have dragged a bit.

So many compliments!
I went as my best friend's date to her sorority's formal, and I received so many compliments on the dress from girls who I had never even met! It was absolutely stunning, especially with gold jewelry and purple pumps. It was tight in the bust, but zipped (barely!). Other than that, it was everything I could have wanted in a formal dress!

Was the perfect dress for the last weekend of summer!
My experience wearing this dress marked two notable "firsts": my first Rent the Runway experience and my first time wearing a maxi dress to a wedding. Although I definitely was nervous, RTR did not disappoint in either department. As promised, my dresses arrived 2 days before the wedding and I had 2 different sizes to choose from, which was key -- while the 2R fit my body better, it was too tight around my bust, so I ended up going for the 4R. I loved the feel (perfect for the dance floor, even though it was strapless) and the length. There was certainly wear in the inside of the dress, but it looked brand new otherwise and I received many compliments (I couldn't take the credit though and had to fess up that it was RTR's which excited even more people!) -- overall, a huge hit! Definitely recommend it to others!

Bright and elegant
I wore this to a black tie wedding in the fall. It was tight at the top (couldn't wear a bra) and the front on the dress fell a little longer than the back. It was OK in length with 4 inch heels. Overall, very pretty dress that stood out in a crowd.

Cute print, but top slides down
The print design on this dress was beautiful in person! I am normally between an 8 and a 10 in dress sizes, so I ordered both , but ended up wearing the 8R since I was nervous the top would slide down if it wasn't a snug fit. The length was good, I wore flat gold sandals and it wasn't uncomfortably long. My only problem with this dress was the top. I was constantly having to pull it up because it would slide down. I was wearing a nude strapless bra which I eventually ditched because every time the dress would slip down, the top of my bra was visible. I figured the dress would cling better to my skin rather than the bra, so taking off my bra helped a little bit, but I was still pulling up my dress the whole night.

People loved loved loved my dress! It was so gorgeous.
I ordered 3 different sizes since I wasn't sure which one would fit. I thought I would have been a 6, but I ended up being an 8, and even that was a little small in the bust, but thats because Im a C cup. The dress is absolutely beautiful though.

Pretty dress!
I got this dress as a second option so I didn't actually wear it. I liked it a lot, but even with ordering a size up from what I normally wear, the bust area was too small. I'm a busty size 6 and this was for a true all around size 6. I could hardly breathe with it zipped up! I would suggest if you are busty to order a size larger.
