This dress is so much more beautiful in person and even better in pictures. It really made me pop on my prom night. I recommend this dress to anyone who wants to turn heads on a big night.

This dress is absolutely beautiful and is very flattering on. For prom, I paired it with nude heels and a simple bracelet to let the dress take center stage. This is a great dress for anyone who is going for an old Hollywood glamour feel.

This dress was AMAZING! I was very afraid to rent it because I am tall, and figured it may be too short; but I did it anyway! With a 2inch heel this dress graced the floor just perfectly. The tail in the back was so marvelous and the dress is MUCH more beautifl in person. I love it! and had a great 1st time experience renting from the site!

The dress came earlier than I expected and it fit perfectly!
This dress was absolutely perfect! I wore it to my senior prom and it was everything I could have hoped for. The dress is comfortable and way more gorgeous in person! It's also really lightweight.I would definitely recommend this dress to EVERYBODY. Not to mention the dresses I ordered came in a day early (: Don't doubt renting this. It's an amazing dress.
DaryaJanuary 19, 2012
First off, you looked gorgeous! I was just wondering how tall your heels were? I'm 5'3" and need to find the perfect height of heels to wear with this. Thanks :)
RTRJanuary 30, 2012
Hi Darya! If you are 5'3" you are able to wear the R length in this dress with about a 2-3 inch heel!
MalorieFebruary 1, 2012
That dress looks great on you. I'm 5'4 and also a 0. Would you recommend regular or long length? Also, Did you wear a strapless bra or did it come with a built in bra?
OlaFebruary 5, 2012

Whis was a B-E-A-U-tiful dress! Everyone said I looked like a movie star! Despite the fact that I was only a junior attending senior prom, It seems I stole the show. Sadly, I should've ordered a size 0, so the dress did slip. the material is stretchy, so it was very comfortable, and the dress was 20x more beautiful in person :)

I felt like a movie star in this dress!
This dress is ABSOLUTELY Beautiful!! It fits perfectly. I have a very curvy figure with a rather 'j-lo-esque' booty and the ruching on the hips adds even more POW. Haha. Super glamorous and very old Hollywood. I'm excited to Rent the Runway again soon!!
TheaDecember 9, 2012
Love this! I just rented this dress for the People's Choice Awards. I have a really similar body to you (get the J.Lo feeling too! haha) -- did you wear any shapewear underneath? I'm looking at Spanx because the silhouette is so sleek, but was wondering which type to get. Thanks!

This dress was my back up dress- it is beautiful- almost a blush gold color. I choose not to wear it because of the ruching. I am in great shape but the ruching was not becoming- would be great on someone extremely slender. It does feel great on.

I LOVED this dress!! I'm really short (5 foot) so it was a little long on me, I just wore really high heals. I wore it to my senior prom in 2011. And I would get it again. I got so many compliments on the dress. I didn't wear any jewelry because the dess was perfect all by itself. I highly suggest this dress!
JenniferMarch 17, 2012
What size heels did you wear? Im also 5foot, was it too long?
carinaMarch 3, 2014
Jennifer, I wore pretty high shoes. I had to hold the dress up but it was totally worth it.

After calling and emailing RTR, I received 2 different responses about the dress' length and how they were measuring it - so I ordered a 4L and a 4R just in case. For the record the 4L was perfect for a girl that is 5' 8" with 2.5-3 inch heels. The colour of the dress is, more accurately, a very light rose gold and cannot be properly gauged from the pictures. Although it had boning, it was only in the bust area and although I am completely matching the description of a size four, the bust area was a little big and did not do flattering things if you don't wear a bra with it. Finally, it should be noted that this dress has a train! It is pretty spectacular to look at but not very practical to dance in. Overall, this dress was amazing on the night and I got so many complements!!! I only give it four stars because someone else at the event was wearing the exact same dress :(. NOTE TO RTR - Someone needs to make sure that kind of thing doesn't happen...!!!!!

I rented this dress as a back up and didn't end up wearing it. I have dark hair and an olive complexion, and the gold color just didn't work for me. Also, the dress isn't very forgiving if you are trying to conceal a belly. It is absolutely a beautiful dress and very comfortable - just didn't work for my body or my coloring.

I love this dress! It is so comfortable and is extremely flattering. It created a nice hourglass figure for me (who tends to be straight up and down) and fit my bust perfectly. I usually wear a 4 but it would not zip past my chest so I tried the 6 and it fit great. I wore it to my BF's military ball and got a ton of compliments. I am 5'5", 128lbs, 35D.

Loved it!
I rented this dress for a military ball and it was wonderful! The fit was slimming with the ruching in the center and it went perfectly with his Marine uniform. The only problem I had with the dress is that the small train in the back was sometimes in the way... my date was worried he was going to step on it all night. But it was absolutely fabulous! I would definitely recommend this dress to anyone!
KayciNovember 24, 2011

The dress came on time, even though I was afraid it wouldn't my fears were quickly alleviated! Very time sensitive and they really came through for me.
I was very pleased with this dress, it was absolutely beautiful, especially in person. However, being 5'9'' the dress ran a little short with heels :( So for all you tall ladies I suggest going a size up if you want the dress to be long enough, but then the overall fit is a loose one. Definitely for smaller busted women. Still stunning received many compliments and I'm sure you will too.

Hello Kelly! I'm considering this dress and I'm 5'9 as well (34B and 125 pounds)... Would you suggest size 2, 4 or 6? Thank you so much!!

Hi Elena, we recommend size 2L and 4L in this style for your measurements!

Perfect for the Pageant!
The dress fit perfect. I am 5'3 and wore 3 inch heels. It was a little long though. I am a 34a so I wore a slight push up. The color is more of a rosegold. I won the preliminary so I'm going to finals! So I definitely recommend this dress!

Gorgeous dress & timely delivery!
I loved this dress! It was incredibly gorgeous - I got compliments alllll night long (which was saying something considering I was at a fashion-based event!) I am 5'2 and was wearing 3.5" heels, and the dress completely covered my feet (with about 1/4" dragging in front), and it has a tiny train in the back. The dress has a lot of stretch to it, which makes it an easy & comfortable wear (I would recommend a smaller back-up size due to the stretch, as well), and also makes it appear almost like liquid gold when you move! However, the stretch combined with the weight of the dress made it hard to stay up (especially with my non-existent 32A chest) which would, in turn, cause the dress to drag more than intended. All-in-all, I would definitely rent this dress again given the right occassion, but would put more effort into taping the top so that I wouldn't have to fuss with it all night!
AlexJanuary 23, 2012
I was happy to hear that the dress worked out for you! I have a body very similar to yours and I rented it for an upcoming event. What color shoes look best with it?
RTRJanuary 30, 2012
Hi Alex! You can do a metallic or black strappy heel with this dress!

I just rented the Nicole Miller such a sweetheart golden ball gown with the Ciner diamond waterfalls necklace and let me just say if the last thing I do in life is wear this dress and necklace Friday night to the DuPont Holly Ball and the next day I get locked in a cage until I die at age 90 I will consider myself spoiled. I've never seen a more beautiful garment on a celebrity dead or living let alone on myself. I feel like a princess, angel, mermaid, and siren all in one. Thank you so much RTR you made my life.

my BFs face when he saw me in the dress!
This was a fantastic, show stopper dress! I wore this to my BF's Marine Corp Birthday Ball which was a black tie affair. Everyone stopped to compliment me on the dress everywhere I walked. It really looked great on my skin tone and hugged my curves pretty nice. The cons: Dress looked slightly worn essp by the bust area. Also, it ran pretty big. I wear normally a size 3/4 or small and I got the 2L and it still felt kinda big on me...maybe it was just me. Also, the lining on the inside kept getting stuck to my heels when I walked and it was super annoying!! Would of been much better if it was actually sown to the hem of the dress so it didnt flop around on the inside while the actual dress flowed smoothly when I walked (the train). And last but not least the bust area was not flattering to boobs AT ALL it actually made me look flat chested so i needed to wear a very good push up bra to overpower the wiring that was badly placed. Besides that it did the job.

I was nervous that this would run small or not be able to zip BUT it fit absolutely perfectly! It's so stretchy that it zipped easily and was SO comfortable for the whole night. Definitely a show stopper so be prepared for attention. I wore 5" heels so I ordered a L instead of R. Perfect length.

SEQUINS! GOLD!
I could not have chose a better dress for the ball that I attended! I felt like Serena Van der Woodsen in season 1 of Gossip Girl when she attended the Debutante ball (I'm sure many of you who read this are familiar with the episode). Not only was it comfortable and easy to move around in, but it sparkled beautifully and fit perfect in all of the right places. At first the 4R was slightly big and I was regretting getting a 6R rather than a 2R, however when I put a strapless bra on it made quite a difference. The color that this dress looks online is a lot different then what it actually is. It appears to be a bright and classy champagne gold, however it is more metallic. I wore sparkly gold , 5 1/2 inch heels, the color was off, however the dress was floor length so nobody noticed. Overall I would definitely recommend this dress to any girl who plans on being the belle of the ball!

This dress is fantastic! Curve hugging in the right places with a little stretch to provide needed comfort.

Perfect Mardi Gras Ballgown
Possibly my favorite dress that I've ever owned. Not only did it fit perfectly, it was COMFORTABLE!! My only beef with it was the upper seam on the left side of the bust kept flipping over. There's just more fabric on that side. It wasn't fixable with double-sided tape or safety pins. I ended up doing a lot of readjusting, but overall I was pretty happy.

The formal I went to was wonderful and I definitely had the most sparkly gown. I got so many compliments throughout the night, it was unforgettable.
I wore this to a fraternity 15 year anniversary formal and it was great. I got so many compliments. I am 4'11 so I wore 5 inch heels and it was about floor length. The fit was great. I'm at 34D and the chest area fit me fine-- no sliding down or anything.

Great Find!
This dress fit great in every area except one. It was too big in the chest so I had to keep pulling the dress up throughout my event. Other than that, the dress looked beautiful. I got lots of compliments, but I wish it would have fit a little tighter up top to keep me feeling comfortable from thinking it would fall down!

Winning the pageant with this beautiful dress on!
I wore this dress for a scholarship pageant! I am really short (5'1'') and I wore 5'' heels with this dress and it was the PERFECT length. I have a really small chest, but curves for days and it fit really well. Very unique and sexy dress! P.S. I won the pageant! This dress with was show stopper and I received so many compliments.

If I wore shorter heels, (like 3" or 4") would it be dragging on the floor all night? Congrats on the win you are stunning! I'm the same height and weight as you but I have a 32A bust size.

Very nice dress but hard to fit larger bust sizes. Bought a miracle bra and my boobs didn't fit in the dress but I downsized and it looked fine

I wore the dress to my boyfriend's military ball and people complimented me all night. The dress was so gorgeous! It looks incredible in person.
I don't think I'm usually a size 0 (although I could be wrong) so I panicked a little when Rent the Runway emailed me a few days before the event and told me that the size 2R I ordered wouldn't be available. They substituted a 0R instead and it fit perfectly! Customer service was really apologetic about their mistake too, and tried really hard to fix the problem, so that was nice. All the other reviews are right, the dress is a little short for a gown. I'm about 5'5" and I wore a 5 inch nude heel and my shoes showed in the front. The back has a slight train which is really pretty. The dress has a lot of layers which makes it kinda warm. The fabric is also stretchy, which made it more flattering (and comfortable) in my opinion. However, the heaviness of the fabric made it fall a little and the tape that RTR includes didn't really help. It wasn't a big deal though, I didn't mind adjusting it every few minutes. I was so impressed by the texture and reflectiveness of the sequins; it looked like liquid gold. The dress made my night and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to stand out. So beautiful!

The gown was stunning and came just on time!
My sister told me about Rent the Runway back in October and recommended it for my prom which was in March. I was a little skeptic at first but searched for the perfect dress and found it. I ordered it in January and anxiously waited 2 months for it. The wait was so worth it, I was in shock when it came in the mail. It was the most beautiful dress I've ever seen in my whole life! It looks 100 times better in person, after seeing it online I thought it was going to be a tacky gold, but it's really a light rosey gold. I wore it for my junior prom and often got told how beautiful it was, and how I stood out. It was also the perfect length; I'm 5'8 and wore 2 inch heels and the long fit fantastic. I honestly felt like a million bucks in it! I was actually upset sending it back, I wanted to keep it forever! I won Prom Queen, too! Thank you Rent the Runway, for help making my night incredible.

Thank you for your review Marina! You convinced me :) I think I'm about your size (5'9, 125 pounds, 34B chest with slightly wider mediterranean hips :)). Could you please advise me on which size you think I should get? Thank you so much!!
MarinaApril 3, 2012
I would get the 4L and 6L! I think 4 would be perfect but you get to pick two sizes so get either 4L, 6L or possibly 2L. As long as the 4L is the first choice! Chat with an online stylist just to be sure, they are online everyday except Sundays til 7oclock :)

Awesome and easy!
This process couldn't have been easier. I will absolutely rent again. This dress is definitely stretchy. I had rented a 2L and 4R since I am normally a size 4. The 2 fit better but would not close over my bust (32D) so I went with the 4. The ruching on the back of the dress is definitely flattering and I received compliments on the all night long. I can't tell you how many people said I looked like a movie star! If you are not sure about sizing, I would rent a size smaller for the backup. The dress is curve hugging without looking like you're trying too hard. The next morning I just dropped the dresses in their pre-paid envelopes and popped them in the mailbox. Voilia!! Done.

I wanted to love the dress...
I fell in love with the picture of the dress. Unfortunately, it didn't fit me correctly. I'm petite and short waisted, so the material bunched up around my waist and belly, making me look pudgy, and the dress did not , as my husband put it, 'grab the right places'. The heaviness of the sequins made it fall a bit, and it did nothing for my hips or butt, I looked like I had a flat butt and no hips, which isn't the case. I'm sure for someone taller and thinner, it'd have been great, but it just didn't look good on me. The material is great, and the fabric has a bit of give, so I would probably say you could order a size down from your normal size.

Clever use of stairs makes me look about 6 feet tall hahah :)
The color of this dress is amazing. It's not the bright gold you might think it is but it is beautiful! I didn't wear any jewelry with it because the dress itself was that amazing. It's the perfect dress to rent because you can really only wear it once. As for the fit, the length was perfect. I'm 5'1 and wore four inch heels. The train is beautiful but you do have to pick it up to walk. The 0R felt almost a little bit stretched out (the 2R almost felt tighter?) and both had lost a few sequins here and there, but nothing noticeable. This dress made me feel amazing — definitely a showstopper.
