Not a great find. I was disappointed.
I ordered this dress as a back up for the original dress I ordered from RTR for a black tie wedding. The dress was, unfortunately, a huge disappointment. Fortunately, though, I LOVED the other dress I ordered. This dress, though very pretty in the pictures, was not very flattering on my figure at all. The straps were far too thin and cut into my shoulders far too much, even with the correct sizing. Also, the bust is not flattering for someone with a slight frame and small bust. It was far too difficult to get a strapless bra under it, but not supportive enough to go without the bra. I wouldn't rent this one again.

I was not able to wear the dress for my occasion, I could not get it zipped up.
The dress was beautiful, I couldn't wait to wear it and share pictures but, the zipper didn't zip up all the way, it kept getting stuck. To keep from breaking the zipper or tearing the dress, I didn't wear it. Overall, I can't give the dress a bad rating, VERY BEAUTIFUL.

nothing special
upon ordering it I knew it wasnt going to be anything special and that's exactly what I thought when I tried it on. It's a very simple dress and the purple accent is a little bit lighter than in the picture. You would definitely want to wear heels with this unless you are already super tall.

Great dress!
I had to wear with a strapless bra but my bra had to be low cut. It was flowy and perfect for the military ball I attended. I got many compliments. It was long though...I am 5'3 and even though I had on 6in heals you couldnt see them!

Too short
This was my back up, and it was just too short. It was tea length almost so it was a no-go immediately. Otherwise it was ok. Not that exciting.

Great dress & great first experience with RTR. Wore it to a black tie affair for my husband's work.
Fit is great but it does run very long. I am 5'5'' and wore the 0R and even with 3 inch heels the dress was about an inch too long. Be sure to have some really high platform pumps to go with this one!

Received the dress so quick...
The fit was pretty true to size. The color is as beautiful as it was in the photos. I ended up not wearing this though because the back up dress was a better fit for the event in my opinion. Otherwise, this dress was beautiful!

Do NOT rent this dress!!!!!
I rented this dress and upon opening the package I noticed the size 2 dress was damaged! The chiffon on top was ripped, but they still sent it to me. Lucky I fit in the size 4 fine. BUT, the straps were a huge problem! Like the other reviews said, they were NOT adjustable and dug into my skin so tightly, that half way through the wedding all I could focus on was how badly my shoulders hurt, plus it let a bad indenture in my skin. Lastly, the chiffon that hangs off the side was hanging by 1 string literally!! It was so badly sewed that my aunt had to come over and rescue me an hour before the wedding to sew it back on tightly!! Overall it's pretty but extremely cheap quality! I was pretty disappointed and for the price will not be

Love Love Love!
This dress fit me very well but the dress was a bit long. I wore very tall heels with it so it looked fine! The dress is very structured at the bust and is a bit heavy. I absolutely love this dress!

"Why is it you always look amazing at these events?"
I wore this dress to a formal reception. This dress is stylish, elegant, and comfortable. It does run a little large, mostly in the straps. I was supposed to wear the size 6 dress, but it had some damage to it--it was missing the purple sash. Luckily, since the straps were too big anyway (they kept falling off my shoulders, I opted to wear the backup size 4 dress, which fit perfectly (which is a surprise because I'm usually a 6 in styles like this because I have a relatively full bustline). I got compliments galore all night--the only reason I gave this a four star though is because of the static cling. I don't know, there's just something about silk chiffon that attracts static cling. I hung it out all night before the day I needed to wear it and did the metal hanger and lotion trick. Those kept the static cling away for a little bit.

Was the most dressed up person in the room, and I loved it!
I have been losing weight, but the fit was as accurate as I know. The dress is very forgiving below the chest area. Also, the padded bra does make one not need to wear a strapless bra. I say fabulous dress! Got a lot of compliments. Also, there was a mix up with UPS not leaving the dress at the delivery address. Renttherunway customer service fixed that and it was delivered same day as promised! GREAT Customer Service! Will definitely recommend!!!

Gorgeous gown - MEASURE first!
OVERWHELMINGLY stunning, something I never could have worn/afforded normally and when it came in the mail my jaw dropped when I saw it . . . more gorgeous than expected! I was beyond excited to wear it and so happy I tried it on right away, as it did not fit. I should have followed the exact instructions of the opinion of the site regarding fit and would have ordered a dress that fit. My bust size is 34DD, this is the only day of my life I wanted it to be smaller :) Called RTR immediately; stylist was A-class and sent an immediate replacement gown even more stunning than first and I only had to pay an air fee/overnight for extra $35.00. Will definitely order again and recommend this fantastic company to everyone!!

Beautiful gown
This was a lovely, flowing gown, but I didn't get it in the right size, so it was too big. Also, as others have suggested, the bust area was pretty generous, so not ideal for a pear shaped person. Having said that, the flow of the gown was great for hiding hips and belly. I was a bit surprised that it was overall darker than I'd expected. The purple elements didn't stand out as much as I'd thought they would.

Not for pear shape
It's a pretty dress, but nothing stunning. It's not very flattering for pear shapes though. Usually, this type of cut looks good on pears, but the ribbon thing on the side visually added a lot of weight to my frame. I ended up wearing my backup RTR dress instead. It might look better on someone thinner than me... but, even then, it's not that different from any other black dress.

Pretty, but a little big
Pretty dress, but it was too big on top. If you are smaller chested I would suggest getting a smaller size.

Missed out on a great dress...
I wanted to share my experience so it doesn't happen to anyone else. When the dress arrived it was lovely, but silly me I hung it up and waited for the last minute to try it on. Well it was one hour before my event and when I put on the dress it was a little big on me. The chest area was too loose. At this time, I had to shuffle around the closet to wear something completely different. So ladies, my point is, please try on the dress the day it arrives........

I ordered the long in this gown because of my height and it was way too long. I had to go out and buy 4"heels with a 1" platform so I wasn't tripping all over it. My second size was a regular and the length would have been perfect but it was too large in the bust. Great dress though. Looks very elegant and the purple really pops.

My husband and I had an amazing time at this wedding and I got so many compliments on the dress! Had it shipped to the hotel and everything! Just had to try not to trip all over it when dancing because it was too long.
This dress really is beautiful. I rented it for a black-tie-optional wedding, and it was great for that occasion. They are right when they say the straps can be a little tight, but it worked perfectly for me all over. I had to wear a strapless bra with it to fill in the "cup" area a little more, and I am a C-cup. It was good to have the extra support, though it would have been more comfortable to go without anything. ONE problem: the length. I got the 8R which is recommended for my height, AND I wore heels (2 3/4 inches) and the dress was STILL way too long. Had to "hem" it with double-sided tape, which was tough because of the sheer fabric overlay. Overall a great dress, just too long for me.
