Very Flattering - Birthday Gala
It is rather low cut, more than I am used to, but since I have a small bust, it wasn't scandalous. Wearing such a dress just makes you feel elegant, the back is simply gorgeous. Overall, a great pick, I'd wear it again!

Stunning dress!
The dress is gorgeous, fab royal blue color. I'm 5'5and a regular length went perfectly with c.3inch heels. Very low cut I have bigger boobs which really show in the dress so I had to pin it up a bit but I don't think this detracted from the look in any way. Great dress!!

Gorgeous color but tight on hips
I am a size 8 and I rented the 10 just in case but the lining was too tight. 5'8' and long length is good.

Stunning color, pretty lace details
The color is awesome, a bright cobalt blue. Lace sleeves/back was the perfect detail. I wore a 10R (I'm 5'4", 140lbs, athletic/pear shape, small chest!) Like many of the other reviews, the top fit terribly, very low cut and a lot of extra room. I had to "engineer" it quite a bit but I made it work. Looked a little poofy around the middle but it was wearable. I would have given it 5 stars if it weren't for the chest area! Definitely made for a longer torso. The length was fine, my heels were about 3" and the dress didn't drag too much. The flat seams going down the front of the dress are really flattering and lay nicely. The dress is so pretty and colorful that you can wear minimal jewelry and you'll still stand out. I've rented from RTR a few times and will continue to use this service. Love this site!

Beautiful, vibrant dress!
I rented this Reem Acra gown for a close friend's wedding when I was bridesmaid. The bride asked us to get cobalt blue gowns, and this one was perfect! The delicate lace detail on the sleeves and back is beautiful. My only issue was that it was a bit tight in the hips and large in the bust, but that was fixable by wearing spanx and a padded bra. I also wore a cobalt blue lace bandeau (which I found on eBay!) since the neckline was too low for the religious ceremony.

Regal and glamorous in a gorgeous color!
The fit on the ribcage and hips felt slightly small, so even though my usual size 10 fit ok I elected to wear the 12 instead. I'm 5'8" and the regular length was perfect with low heels - it just skimmed the ground without tripping me up. The neckline is quite a deep plunge but if you're busty (I'm a 34DD) you'll fill it out without any gaps. I would just say choose a bra with as little bulk as possible, plus no-VPL undies ;-)

The customer service with rent the runway is exceptional!
I rented this dress for a black tie wedding. It was my alternate dress and ended up loving it over the original dress I chosen. The color is absolutely amazing. I received so many compliments! Of note renters... I generally wear a 8L and ended up with a 10L. I was worried that it was going to be too big. That was not the case at all. The dress was actually a little snug as the lining looked to have been repaired multiple times!!! Also the cap sleeves have no give. With that said, over all it was an amazing experience. The dress was perfect for the occasion!

I felt sophisticated and sexy in this dress. The 6r fit me like a glove, it was perfect!
There is an inner liner so it's a tight fit, especially in the hip area if you have an hourglass figure.

I stood out in the color.
Cons- I am a 34 DD and I was a little uncomfortable about the amount of cleavage. Other than that I loved the color and fit. I am 6ft so I wish I could have gotten the dress in an extra long.

Great color, great fit! Everyone wanted to know where I got this dress!
I wore this Nicole Miller as the maid of honor in my cousins's wedding because she let us choose our own dresses. Not only were the fit and color great (the color is more vivid in person, more royal blue), but it was also extremely comfortable to wear all night because it is stretchy. The cut of the dress gave me more of an hour glass figure, which I loved because my hips are very narrow. The lace fabric is very flattering, and hid the fact that I wore a strapless bra and spanx underneath really well.The only con was that it was too long when I got it, but another advantage of the stretchy lace fabric is that you can make a temporary hem without ruining the dress. I had originally chosen a different dress and this was the second replacement, so I want to say THANK YOU RTR for the awesome customer service and helping me find the perfect dress in time for this important event!

Beautiful dress, can't go wrong with Reem Acra, material was top quality, to be expected.
Wore this dress for a ball. Received compliments all night. Because of this pleating in front the draping was a little awkward but was fixed by adding a broach in the front.

Timely and great options
Pros: the color is the most beautiful blue I've ever seen. It is true to size. The lace is gorgeous. Unfortunately, I could to end up wearing this dress because the cheat fits strangely. It is a bit too low and it needed to be altered. It does very little for breasts and it was too hard for me to find the right bra

Dress is very beautiful and flattering. Lots of complements.
Dress is great , design for tall flat chested women .was too big for me. I had to make multiple adjustments to fit me better. Lace on the shoulders had some holes, and fabric had some stains. But it was not too visible . Overall I would recommend to rent it. My first choice sizes became unavailable at the last moment so I had to go with bigger size.

So many compliments
I got many, many compliments on this dress. It is really stunning - classy and sexy at the same time. I did not quite fill the bust out, so when I taped it, I pulled the fabric a bit higher. It is form-fitting, which is great once it's on, but I had to wiggle in and out of it! I usual wear a 2 or 4 in daytime dresses, but find I am typically a 6 in formal dresses.

This dress is gorgeous but very low cut. Sexy, but make sure you have your fashion tape!
This dress was super formal and gorgeous. This is a formal event dress 100%. You can't really pull this dress off unless it is a black tie affair or super formal event. It is stunning on and the blue is to die for. I didn't up wearing it to my event because of the sexy factor and its formalness. I would rent it again if the occasion comes up though. Make sure you rent up one size. I am normally a 4 and the 6 fit perfectly.

Absolutely loved this dress, but a tad bit too snug
I Loved this dress, it was beautiful and LONG enough, but it was just a bit too snug on my hips. I would love to rent it again when i drop 5 lbs. The color is striking and the lace is pretty, but there was a tiny rip in the lace.

Really wanted to love this dress, but...
I ordered this as my main dress, but will have to go with the backup. This dress is a beautiful color and great fabric, but not much stretch and runs small, so I would order a size up! It's especially form fitting in the waist. There were only two problems that prevented me from wearing this dress: The bust is very low cut and very baggy. It will do if you're standing the entire night and can pull it down, but as soon as I sat down I exposed pretty much everything. Also, the regular size was too short to wear with heels (I'm 5' 7.5" tall), so if you're planning on wearing heels and are over like 5'5", I'd order a long! Otherwise, would've made a beautiful formal dress.

Only rent this dress if you have a long torso
This dress was my backup choice since my first choice dress wasn't available in my backup size. While the dress was really pretty, the neckline cut was much more exposed than the model photo. The main reason I decided not to wear the dress is because of the way the gathering laid. I have long legs and a short torso so the gathering ended up hitting by my belly button instead of higher up and ended up looking unflattering. I agree with the other comments that the shoulder area is tight when you putt the dress, but you definitely can move around without feeling constricted.

AMAZING Dress
This dress is amazing! I got SO many compliments and I did NOT want to send it back. It was slightly tight around the shoulders when taking it on and off, but overall, it was perfect. RTR deserves seriously thanks too. The original dress I ordered was damaged by the previous person and they couldn't send it to me. They notified me a few days before the event so I could pick a new dress for them to overnight to me. Overall, it was a great experience.

Stunning!
This dress fit like a glove. I normally wear an 8 but after reading the reviews I'm glad I sized up. The fabric has no stretch but the overall fit was amazing and super flattering. Very sad to send it back, worth every penny.
LeighJanuary 22, 2014
How long was it on you?
LaurenJanuary 23, 2014
It was just skimming the ground in the back (I wore 3.5" heels). It has a slight train, making it slightly longer in the back than in the front.
AnyaFebruary 9, 2014
Did you have any fit problems in the bust? The reviews of the green version of this dress say it's very showy and there were some size issues. I wear around a 6-8 as well and my bust is a DD but 32 round so we're basically the same size.
LaurenFebruary 10, 2014
I'm a 34DD actually (for some reason RTR doesn't have that option). I ended up going without a bra and had no issues. It is quite showy (i.e. plunging--making it hard to wear a bra bc you'd probably see it) but I filled it out enough that it was "secure" I could bend over etc without the fabric gaping to reveal anything. I'm sure you could wear those petal things if you're worried about peeking through.

Simply beautiful - big busted ladies beware!
This dress is the most amazing shade of blue. It was elegant and classy except I couldn't wear it because I have a large bust. Eeeek! If you have large than a B bust, I'd suggest another dress unless you really want to be on display. The neckline is deceiving based on the photos. Oddly, although I have a D bust, it was still slightly loose in that area. I'm sure a little fashion tape would have remedied the problem. Otherwise, GORGEOUS.

Simply stunning...
The dress is stunning, and really comfortable. I did end up needing to use the tape around the neckline, but with that it didn't cause any issues. The dress is slimming, a wonderfully bright blue color and doesn't require much for accessories because it's so beautiful and unique on it's own. Rent it, and you'll be glad you did!

Beautiful dress, great color, lots of complements... just a tad short
I think the 4 would have been a bit better fitting, however the length would have been an issue. Still worked with the help of a little fashion tape. Great help from RTR to rent this beauty when my original pick was unavailable at the last minute.

This dress is absolutely gorgeous; but maybe for some one without a full bust. The dress is very well tailored and the color is amazing. The only issue was the discomfort of the lace, it wasn't very comfortable at all.

This is a Kate Middleton Show Stopper!
I wore this to a friends wedding this past November. I received so many compliments and everyone wanted to know where I found this beautiful dress. It will probably work best for a smaller chest because you cant wear a bar with it due to the low plunge in the front. this dress is a complete show stopper, you wont be disappointed!

Beautiful Dress
This Dress was a backup dress. I loved the dress but it had a small rip in the lace on the back so I decided not to wear. I am also 5'7 and got a 4R. I would suggest getting a long if you plan to wear heels of any type. I would have been able to wear with flats only. It is a very flattering dress though.

Beautiful, but not for short women
This was one of my back-up dresses for an inaugural ball. The dress is gorgeous and perfect for an event where you want to be more conservative. However, this dress is not for short women. I am 5'2 and can usually wear a "regular" length RTR dress with 4-inch heels. This dress was still touching the floor with 6-inch platform heels. Also, this dress is better suited for someone with a longer torso. I have a shorter torso, so there was extra fabric from my waist to bustline. If you are tall and slim, this would be a stunner!

Beautiful dress, prefect for formal wedding
The dress fit TTS except the length "L" was too long for me. I am 5'7" and wore 4" heels and the dress was about 1" too long. There was nothing I could do about it, because I didn't have enough fashion tape so I just wore it as-is. I had to pick up the dress some when walking. The top is definitely very loose. Luckily, I had one strip of fashion tape left which I used to tape the dress to my bra so it wouldn't show. My bra could still be seen at certain angles, but not from the front. Overall, this dress was very pretty and a gorgeous cobalt blue that brought out my blue eyes. It's very classy.

STUNNING, classic
This dress is absolutely stunning. First, the picture on RTR does not to the color justice- it's a bright royal blue, which pleasantly surprised me when I first opened the bag. The lace back is to die for, and the skirt is beautiful and was the perfect length with the 3 inch heels I had. I got many many compliments and felt great wearing it. The only little thing was that the dress was a bit large for me at the bust, and initially when I put it one there was a lot of extra space at the breasts, so that just sitting there you could easily peak into my whole bra. What I ended up doing was twisting the front and holding it together with a safety pin- I also used the double sided tape to make sure my breasts/bra did not get exposed at any time.
