Beautiful dress. Many compliments.

Very pretty. I'm 5'7" and wore 4" heels but the dress was still a little long. I wore a backless bra because I had one but I don't think there was any difference when not wearing a bra since the top was tight enough.

This dress was beautiful in person. The colors were vibrant and I felt stunning all night!

I'm 5'9 and wore the 0L with three inch heels. It was about half inch too long really no big deal but I did trip over a couple times. I received complements all night about the dress. I felt beautiful wearing it and hated having to send it back. Rent it! You won't regret it!!

Fabulous

Fit perfectly! It has pockets so it's perfect for those fund raiser events that you need to use your phone to bid. Need a low strapless bra as it will show in the back. I just tucked mine low but I'm not very big chested. Need super high heels for my height of 5'5". I loved it and got lots of compliments.

Perfect style

In love with this dress. Perfect fit! The back is opened and gives it beautiful touch. I would recommend wearing a NuBra with this dress. Very classy! Highly recommended! Order your size it is true to size.

I loved this dress! It fit perfectly in everyway! I would highly recommend!

I am a 36 D busy and 31 inch waist, 5'7. I wore 2 inch hells and it was perfect length. I was able to go bra less which was necessary. I got lots of compliments and was super comfortable all night.

Lovely and flowing

Very pretty dress which would work best for a shower, garden party or wedding or other very feminine affair. Could have been more tailored and figure flattery would have increased.

Felt so elegant

This dress is a must! I received complements all night long. I am 5'7'' and wore flats the dress was the perfect length. I rented the regular length due to previous reviews and it was perfect. There are slits up both sides that go up pretty high but for the most part the dress hangs in a way that you cannot tell unless you are walking. Dancing was so much fun in the flowy material. You will not be disappointed in this dress. Very flattering and comfortable!

Colors were stunning - so lovely!

I'm almost 5'8. Long was too long, even with 3 inch heals. Went with the 10 instead of the 8 because of snug fit around the ribs. Two front slits and pockets were super fun. Complements all night long.

Vivid color

The colors in the dress are vivid and look beautiful in person. The fabric felt high quality. I went up a size to make sure it fit well in the top since the fabric has no stretch to it. I also liked how the dress flowed in the wind, but it was a bit long for me.

The easiness of shipping back the rental. Quick turn around, no hassle!

Loved everything about this dress! This was my first time using Rent The Runway and it is definitely something I will continue to use for future events. Wore this dress to my cousin's wedding. The only slightly negative thing I have to say is that it does run slightly big around the chest area and it is a bit long for a 0R. I wore 4 inch heels and I'm 5'4. Even at that I highly recommend this rental! I especially loved the leg slits. Very comfy and light.

From the moment I arrived to RTR Georgetown Store, Damien was incredible!!! Loved the dress!!!

It fit true to size. It's also lightweight and fluid so you can move around it quickly. I have 3 kids so it was perfect for the occasion. I was able to run after my 2 year old, dance with my 6 year old and breastfeed my 3 month old. Everyone complimented me on my dress. Highly recommend RTR!!!

Arrived a day early!

Bra situation was a bit awkward. Tried to wear strapless bra but it rode up in the back. Had to go bra-less, which was not ideal. Fabric is beautiful and very expensive feeling. Slits in either side made walking easy. R length with 3 inch heels worked for me (5'8). Compliments all night.

Great experience and dress!!

I love love love this dress. It was my first time using RTR and everything went smoothly. I normally wear a 14 but the 12L fit well. I was able to wear a regular strapless bra without it showing. I'm 6 feet tall and ordered the long length hoping to wear nude wedges with the dress, but it wasn't long enough. I had to wear flats with the dress. The front slits weren't too revealing and made the dress flow so nicely!

Stylish and comfy formal dress

Great dress! Fitted in the waist area but super comfortable. Pockets are always a plus! I'm 5'9" and got the long length. Wore 4" heels and it just hit the floor. Would recommend for any formal event - lots of compliments!

I've never worn a long dress like this. Felt like a princess!

The fit was great and the long size definitely made a difference. The wind helped get some pretty awesome pictures :) I got my heels tangled in the dress a couple of times when I was getting up after sitting but walking was very easy thanks to the slits and the perfect length.

Loved wearing such a colorful, beautiful....and even comfortable dress!

I am 5'8" and ordered a long. I probably shouldn't have....or should've worn higher heels. My heels were two inches and my dress was still too long. One inch higher heels and I would've been fine.

I felt beautiful in this dress!

I received so many compliments about this dress! It fit perfectly for my 5'3" height as long as I had my heels on. I ended up using the smaller option of the dress, but I think it's still true to size as long as you're not too busty--a problem I do not have. I felt lovely in this dress, and my husband agreed wholeheartedly! The two slits in the front made it easier to walk in, and the pocket was a nice surprise.

Beautiful pattern personally I didn't like the slits in front

There are two slits in the front of the dress which make I ready for walking but personally I didn't like them. I have a one year old daughter and so I was bending down to take care of her and found I had to be cautious of the slits. The fabric makes this more appropriate for evening than daytime wear in my opinion. Very pretty dress and I can easily see how someone would love it.

Slimming, flowy dress - many compliments

Gorgeous! Wanted to keep it! Loved dancing around in it. Accentuated my curves in the right ways. Fair warning - I'm 5 foot 6-7 inches and it was long!! Primarily bc the straps were a little too long - I had to spend time MacGyvering it to be shorter by pinning the straps tighter in the back. Even by saving those few inches with the pins, I still wore ~2.5 in heels. Also there's slits in the front (as you can see in my windy photo) but those aren't bad, and can be pinned if you really want to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions.

The second I walked off the elevator and got a compliment from the first person I saw!

Fits beautifully, the way it moves when you walk/in the wind makes you feel like a floating princess! AND there are pockets! And it's so comfortable and figure flattering. I am a B-cup and didn't bother wearing a bra at all - the fabric drapes perfectly to cover all that up! Honestly would have worn it forever if I could have.

Perfect Dress for Prom!

I am a teacher and this was great to wear to prom. I was nervous it wasn't going to fit but it was great. Very comfortable and it has pockets, which made it easy to hold my phone and take pictures. This was my first time using RTR and I will be using it for the upcoming proms and special occasions.

It had me at pockets! I would rent this again in a heartbeat. I didn't have a low cut strapless bra so I just pushed my down and it worked. It covers in all the right places.

Complements all night, in a comfortable dress!

As a tallish (5'9") person, I was concerned about the length, but this was perfect with strappy flat wedges, just skimmed the floor. Such a comfortable and appropriate, fun dress for a summer black-tie optional evening wedding outdoors on a farm. Highly recommend this style, as it is forgiving for those of us who have a pear shape. No bra needed for mid-sized bustline.

Loved this dress

Perfect for a wedding on a Pier in Cali. Loved the colors. Runs slightly big, so I wore 2 bras to help it fit better in the bust. Liked that there was a slit so it was breezy and perfect for the weather.

Beautiful and comfortable!

In love with this dress. Super comfortable, exactly like the picture. It's a very long dress so you have to wear very high heels. Easy to walk because it has open folds in the legs. I'm full chest but that didn't stop me to wear a backless strapless bra because the dress has a open back.I had a lot of complements. This was my first time rent it and I'll rent again!!

Beautiful and flattering dress

Loved this dress. It was very pretty and fit well. I could've gone with the 4 or the 2; ended up wearing the 2 because it was just a little more fitted in the bust. Very float skirt made for a beautiful look.

Such an amazing dress!

This dress was lovely! The only issue was that it's not nearly as breathable as it looked like it would be and the wedding I went to was outside in direct sunlight with 90deg heat--the lining of the dress is pretty solid and made it pretty warm. I wore 4in heels and the 10R was just a touch too long for my 5'6 self--I would of rent it again, but for a venue with air conditioning and wear higher heels.

Complete Showstopper

Body type: Extremely short torso & long legs... Oh and not sure what body category child bearing hips & thick thighs falls into but now that you have a visual, here's my review... I cannot tell you enough how much I loved wearing this dress. I was worried when ordering a 12R because I'm 5'8 but it was the perfect length when paired with sandals, if you're planning on heels I'd highly recommend the 12L. I will say since I'm a 38B I ended up not wearing a bra only because the fitted top was a little snug (sad they don't have this in a size 14) but the fabric in front hung perfectly which allowed me to be comfortable without one at a formal outdoor wedding.

Elegant gown!

I got so many compliments on this dress! I'm not sure I've ever felt so glamorous. If only I could wear this dress everyday ;) the long was quite long, even at 5'7" with high heels on. The 4R would have been perfect.

I swapped my original order in the RTR store last minute. They only had a 0R available but it still fit comfortably (I'm usually a 2/4). Color was beautiful and the slits were fun too.

Perfect!! But not petite

Absolutely gorgeous dress! Received so many compliments and it was so comfortable. I definitely recommend this dress for anyone with a smaller top half as it fit me perfectly and I am a 34A. Flowy bottom allows room for people of any size. Two slits make it easy to walk and dance. The only con was that I ordered this dress in 2 petite and instead received a 2 regular. Called RTR and they said it doesn't actually come in petite and they'd ship me a different dress in time for the wedding. I decided instead to keep the dress and used temporary hem tape for the length. Even with my 4 inch heels I still had to hem about 3 inches so this dress is definitely meant for someone taller.

Loved this colorful gown!

Great dress! Wore this to a black tie optional-late summer wedding in the city. 5 mos. pregnant and it worked with my very small baby bump. The seam around the waist was a bit snug especially after I ate so I wouldn't recommend it for anyone with a larger baby bump as the waist line is lower than an empire waist. I'm 5'7 and wore about a 3.75 inch heel and the 6L length was perfect. A little longer in the back but I probably would not have gone with the 6R even if it was available. Received lots of compliments!

Picture perfect

Truely a lovely gown.. Loved all of the colors. Got lots of compliments!!!!Wore it for a September wedding..the dress is a little long, I am 5'3 and wore 3 inch heels and was still catching the end of the dress....I am a 34'D and I had plenty of room in the top. The only issue I had was the zipper!! Had a difficult time unzipping the dress off the hanger, and the zipper still as an issue while had dress on.. I couldn't get the zipper all the way up...I was a little flustered so I wore a black cardigan over it and I was looking forward to not wearing a sweater with a dress..dress pretty much was true to size, was a little big, but better than being too small! However I would totally use RTR again!!!

My first RTR! Loved it! Stunning dress you won't be disappointed!

Dress was perfect! Top was fitted, no need to wear a bra. The regular was a little too long even with 4in heels. Probably should have gone with the short.
