Felt great in this dress at 18 weeks pregnant
The color is beautiful - it's much more purple than black. It's a lightweight dress which makes it great for summer. Not sure id like it as much if I weren't pregnant as there is a lot of fabric to the dress. The L was about an inch too long for me with 3" heels but it was the only option in the size 4. Wouldn't recommend for larger busts as it was a bit snug for me.

Didn't end up wearing this one...
This dress was pretty, but it was a little too short for me to wear the shoes that I had in mind. I chose to wear my back-up dress.

I felt gorgeous, even at 33 weeks pregnant!
Finding a dress for a black tie wedding is stressful enough, but I dreaded it knowing I'd be 33 weeks pregnant. RTR to the rescue! This dress was prefect - fitted in the right places and flowing everywhere else. I'd recommend it to other moms to be, and to anyone looking for a fun, fancy dress. At 5'11", sandals meant the dress (6L) fell right to the ground, which was perfect.

Glowing at 27 weeks!
At 27 weeks pregnant, and went to a formal affair! This dress is great, VERY comfortable to wear all night. Flowy, with beautiful accents like the gold 'stars' and the asymmetrical shoulder strap. I wore it with jeweled T-strap heels and went light with the jewelry since it had lots of sparkle to begin with! I am 5'4" and the hem of the dress in regular was at the base of the ankle/top of the foot. The 6R did show signs of wear where the shoulder strap comes off the bodice of the dress, but nothing obvious to others and didn't affect the dress in any negative way. Was so very pleased, and would recommend this beautiful dress to preggies and non-preggies alike!

Pregnant friendly
18 weeks pregnant and it fit, but the inner layer was a bit snug on my belly. Also a little tight in the chest, I didn't wear a bra. The length was workable at 5'7 wearing petit, flats were fine and I never had to think about tripping, it was about ankle length.

Loved the flowy-ness of the gown and I received many compliments on the dress :)
I've never considered myself busty but fitting into the snug top of this dress was a challenge. I had to forgo wearing a bra (which was fine) because the dress itself has built in support. I would not recommend this dress for anyone larger than a C-D cup. Otherwise the dress was a dream.

Looked gorgeous with my baby bump!!
I wore this to a formal work function and was very impressed with the fine quality of the fabric, it was luxe and shimmered just enough. I was worried I couldn't fit it (at six months pregnant) but the hips were free so it worked nicely. I got so many compliments and was comfortable all night in it.

Easy to wear.
Fit was good for me since my bust is small. I could see it running small for others. The waist area is loose and dress is flowy - very comfortable.

a little big but gorgeous
I wore this dress to a wedding and got tons of compliments. I usually wear a size 6 or a size 8 dress. I got a size 6 in this one and it was a little big. I just clipped the strap and it was perfect. This dress can be dressed up or down for any type of affair. I loved it and wish I owned it!

I loved that it had a pattern, it stood out from all the other dresses without patterns!
My first long dress I was a little hesitant ordering it for prom. The shoulder strap was to long so the dress was low on me but I wore a push up bra to make sure it wouldn't fall. The gold on the dress made it so easy to pick out accessories!
MaggieMay 6, 2012
I'm 17 and I ordered this dress for prom too! I'm getting it on the 23rd, but was yours delivered on time? Im worried because my prom is on the 25th. Im 5'4 and I ordered a 0R and I'm also a 32A-ish. Did you wear a strapless push up? What did you do with the long strap? How big were your heels? What color did you wear? BTW, the dress looks fabulous on you!!

Hi Maggie, the dress is guaranteed to arrive on the selected start date by 8PM!

Not what I expected from the photo. Colors weren't as blended which is the look I was going for. Also strap was a bit big. Didn't end up wearing it, but loved my back up!

The long wasn't long enough. I still had to wear a flat sandal.

One beautiful dress.
Beautiful dress, I would have loved to wear. I rented the size 4 (which was all that was available) and it fit nicely everywhere but the bust. I could zipper it, but everything was just squeezed in there. Not attractive. I think if you have a 32D or below this might work -- I know it worked on some of the other people who rated it. 32C would be a very safe bet. The skirt was forgiving without being bulky. My hips often cause me to size up, but it was not the case here. The length was great for my 5'4" self.

Wore this dress to a black tie event and it was beautiful and very unique. It ran a little big in the top and was not as flattering as I would like in the top. The length was perfect (I'm 5'6'' and wore 3 inch heels with the regular length).

my husband loved it at all !
I screwed up the date (it was my fault), and didn't received the dress on time, so I end up wore my back up gown. BUT, this dress was so beautiful and fit what I need (to cover my waistline in comfortable way. When I put it on after the event to show up to my husband only, WE BOTH LOVE IT ! My order was size 8, because it was the only size available at the time that I have no choose, I would go 6 next time. The dress was very pretty, it's not too formal but it's elegant. The stylist Molly was amazing, and I love RTR !!!!!!

Comfortable and so so pretty!
I received a ton of compliments on this dress. It does run big. I am typically a 4 on top and 6 on bottom but rented the 4 and 2. I ended up wearing the size 2 (without a bra, I'm a 34B). It was roomy and I able to accommodate my usually size 6 hips! Loved it.

Sadly, I didn't wear the dress, it didn't fit me. Lovely though!
Sadly, I didn't wear the dress, it didn't fit me. Its lovely, and the length was great (I'm 5'9). I am 33 weeks pregnant and wear a 4/6 when I am not pregnant. These days, so long as a dress is super stretchy or flows away from the body at the bust, I wear an 8, so was hopeful that this would work. It fit great on my belly, but didnt fit on my chest/even larger than usual bust. Since a 10 wasn't available, I will be getting a refund and a 10L in another style for my event. Rent the Runway's customer service is fantastic! Thank you!

This dress is stunning
I am 5'3", 118lbs with a 34C/D bust...dress was a little tough to get around my bust. But once I did, holy tatas! It made the girls look A-MAZ-ING. This dress is flowy and beautiful, and the gold stands out so much more in person than in the pictures. I feel wonderful and comfortable wearing it, so it's a total win.

This dress was absolutely gorgeous. I got so many compliments on it! The only drawback was that the bust was a little snug, but it was no big deal. It was fun, flowy and the perfect dress for me and my event! (I wore this as a post-deb to a debutante ball)

Not for large chests
This dress was gorgeous and I was really looking forward to wearing it for my friend's wedding, however it did not fit at all in the bust. I didn't have a backup dress and luckily brought a sweater to wear over it, but I was uncomfortable all night and was barely able to zip the top. I'm a 36D and the rest of the dress fit fine, but the top was way too snug. Really disappointed. :(

Beautiful understated color to change it up from the basic black.
Wore this to an Indian wedding and it stood out but gave a nod to the sarees that most of the other women wore. The length and flow of the dress under the bust is great, however the bust area was a bit tight. I had to size up to a 10, to be able to zip up the top part of the dress.

Not flattering at all for fuller busts...
Tried on both sizes...neither one fit around the top, and I looked like I was pregnant the way the skirt drapes. Just a strange dress, that must only fit a certain figure (that I do 't have!). Called RTR and they overnighted another dress and it worked perfectly.

Gorgeous dress
Gorgeous dress! The fabric and pattern are beautiful but this dress is definitely meant for smaller chested ladies. I think anything bigger than a b cup and you might have trouble. I couldn't get either size zipped up but would have loved to wear it if I could.

Pretty! But, too tight across the chest.
I wound up wearing a second RTR dress because this one was just too tight in my chest. I have a big rib cage but I'm not busty! So, I'd say it runs on the smaller side through the chest. This dress flattened me out. But, it otherwise has a cute cut. It's kind of a gauzy, lighter fabric and very pretty in person.

Runs small
This was my backup dress, but I am glad the 1st dress fit because this did not fit at all. The top was much too small for 34C-34D cup. I am used to some dresses showing too much cleavage, but this dress was very tight up top, which created a non-attractive smushed look. I would go one size up.

Beautiful color, exotic-looking design
I loved this dress, but I wish that RTR had my usual size (size 6). I ordered the 4R to replace a dress that I originally ordered but was damaged by a previous customer. The bust was very tight, I almost couldn't breathe - so I would caution anyone looking to fudge their size to order your usual size or one up because there's no give in the fabric (it's a zipper back). The skirt of the gown is roomy and perfect for a summer outdoor wedding. The length was also surprisingly perfect - I'm barely petite (5'3"), so I expected to have to tape up the hem or wear insane heels, but the RTR style expert told me that this gown runs short, which is true. I think the petite would have been way too short. and the gold in the dress really pops. I didn't have a problem with the shoulder strap, but I think that was because it was a size smaller than what I usually wear.

Formal Engagement Affair
really glad I got both sizes as it did run a bit small. The only major issue I had was with the zipper as it was a bit worn and difficult to get up. Also the hook was missing from the top to clasp the top of the zipper. Great color and fit well. A big snug across the dress with the one strap.

Gorgeous dress, just didn't work for me.
Very tight across the chest, even for my small busted self. Length rocked and shoulder strap worked...just too uncomfortable to wear, even for a night, given the tightness across the chest, even without a bra. Would try again, in a larger size.

surprisingly colorful, great for photos, memorable dress!
I rented this dress for a Black Tie wedding, and it was perfect. The dress is unique and stands out. I was surprised at the extra shades of purple and eye catching yet subtle specks of gold. To me, the dress looked like the galaxy. I have a small bust and was surprised at how tight the dress was around the boobs, but other than that I felt stunning. I'm not much of a jewelry person so I loved the top shoulder strap making it easy to skip a necklace. Looked great in pictures and transitioned very well during sunset to nighttime of dancing.

Pictures do not do this justice!
Really wanted to wear this dress to a wedding, but unfortunately the 12L didn't leave enough room in the bust for me. I'm a full 38C with a wide ribcage/short torso so structured bodices are sometimes an issue for me. But length was perfect for a 3-4" heel for me and the gold foil in the fabric gave it that perfect something extra.

umm...The Dress! I received so many compliments on this dress!
The fit was perfect except for the rib cage area. I made it into the dress (Thank Goodness), but it was a little tight around the ribs. Everything else about the dress was true to size.
