Held up through all I put it through!
This dress was perfect as the matron of honor at my best friend's wedding! Her colors included "wine" and I found the color to be perfect! I was worried the black in the shoulder ribbons would be too dark but they were hardly noticeable. I would definitely say that the dress is true to size because I would consider myself a size 6. I of course waited till the last minute and had to settle for a 4. Thankfully there was a lining because when I zipped it up the seam started to bust. Rent the Runway insurance for the win! It held together though and looked beautiful! I'm 5'10" and the Long size worked perfectly with the heels I had to wear to please the bride. I then put on flats for the reception and the length was still spot on. During the reception I ended up spilling meat sauce all down the front! I went to the reception to try to clean it out as best as possible and thankfully the lighter outer layers of the dress dried pretty quickly. Again, Rent the Runway insurance for the win! I was so impressed!

Easy style and great color
I wore the dress for my senior prom, and it was absolutely amazing. I loved it. The color is gorgeous and the fit is great. There was one issue, and it was that I was sent the wrong size. I originally ordered a 0L and a 2L and planned on wearing the 2, instead of being sent the sizes I ordered I was sent the 0L and a 2 regular. The 2 regular was beyond too short for me so I was forced to wear the 0, which fit it was just really tight. Overall though I loved the dress and would definitely recommend.

Grecian Goddess
This dress is very comfortable and fashion-forward. It looks better in person that in photographs. I ended up not wearing it because I liked the color of my other option better, but this would be perfect for a fall/winter event!

Classy and elegant
I wore this dress for a deb ball and it was lovely. It was very appropriate, but still looked great. The long is super long! I am tall and would have had to wear 3+ inch heels to get it off the ground. I ended up wearing the regular with smaller heels.

Beautiful color and material!
I LOVE this dress, but the top is a bit tight. I suggest you go one size up if you have a larger bust! Beautiful otherwise--might rent again in the proper size if I have another occasion!

It was not flattering on me at all.
This is a beautiful dress, but it definitely wasn't the dress for me. It was tight in the chest area yet too loose everywhere else, making me look like I had absolutely no figure at all.

Absolutely stunning!
I wore this dress for my senior prom, and couldn't be happier with it. I certainly felt I had the classiest dress in the entire room, but I may be a little biased! It was a bit on the long side (it looks very long in the photo because I had my 3" heels off), but otherwise it fit exactly according to the measurements. Beware that the bust is very small, but luckily that was exactly what I was looking for!

Excellent service
This is a beautiful dress, but I didn't end up wearing this. It was my backup dress to the Nicole Miller Forget-Me-Not dress. While the Nicole Miller 4L was way big, I couldn't even zip this dress!! It was way too small. I didn't get to wear it, but it is beautiful- loved the fabric and the color. The length is also short. The 4L would have barely covered my 4inch heels.

Great night, perfect for the Gala I attended.
This was my first rent the runway experience and it went well. I have recently had a baby...and am not my normal size. I ordered this dress thinking it would be loose in all the right places. It was. Many people stated that ti dress runs big, so I ordered an 8 and 10. I couldn't get the largest size zipped over my chest. The gala was Saturday and I got the dresses on Thursday night. I tried them on immediately. I contacted RTR customer service and they overnighted (i only had to pay for shipping) and I returned my two existing dresses. The 12R fit much better in the chest. I was so grateful that it arrive the morning of my event and was perfect for a Black Tie Gala. My only complaint is that I am 5'4" and the Regular was short in heels. As you can tell in the picture, you can see my shoes. I prefer floor length, but in this scenario...it was last minute and I was still happy with the look. The sizes of the 12R were floor length, just seems the front was a little short. Overall, very happy with my experience and I would rent again.

Felt comfortable and classy for a charity event.
This dress is super comfortable. I will say, if your are short this is a great dress. If you are taller than 5'2" I would get the long. My shoes showed with three inch heels in the regular. I would also say if you are chesty make sure to order the size that will fit your bust, the rest of the dress is fairly loose. I loved this dress, and this was my first RTR experience, but it won't be the last. I felt fabulous all night!

This one wasn't too great, but hopefully the next one will be!
I wasn't able to wear this dress. Was way too tight for my chest. I called RTR but they never managed to get me my credit either. Its too bad though because this dress is even prettier in person.

Customer service took care of me like I was one of their own!
This dress arrived Thursday before my Saturday event. It didn't fit. I didn't order 2 sizes because the stylist said based on my measurements the 8 would fit and they didn't have a 6 available for the date anyway. So.. What was I to do??? I called first thing Friday morning and a WONDERFUL woman helped me find another gown and sent me 2 sizes of it, overnight! They totally took care of me and my Saturday event was saved! Thanks again RTR! I normally wear a 6 or 8, but when I order this dress again, I will get a 10 now that I know it runs small.

Fit was fine, but maybe a little short. I am not very tall. 5'6" and could not wear heels with dress
LOVE your site! The dress I was sent was a very pretty dress and of nice quality. I went to a Mardi Gras Ball and the requirement was the dress to be floor length.Since they are so strict I could not even wear flats to meet the requirement. Unfortunately, I was not able to wear the dress but I did not verify the length when I ordered so I feel this was my fault. I had a personal back up dress so it was not a problem. I will certainly order a dress again and be careful to check length. I did not wear the dress so I could not provide a picture. sorry

Gorgeous, comfortable, flattering dress
I wore it for my squad's banquet, which is super formal (the guys were tuxes). I got compliments about the dress all night and even after the event. It was comfortable to wear and hid any imperfections. And seriously - rent it and have someone take a picture as you twirl around - the skirt floats so gently!

Amazing dress, got compliments all night.
This dress was awesome and everyone at my sorority formal complimented it. My only complaint is it ran a little short. I got the Regular but even being 5'4 I think a long would've been better if you're wearing heels. Fabric was nice but the boning did poke.

Great customer service!
This was my backup dress, and I really thought from the reviews that it would fit. The 2r did fit my pear shaped body very well at the top (34a) which was great, however per the other reviews, it does run very short! I'm 5'5" and without shoes this dress was at least 2 inches too short. That's never a problem for me, so I was very surprised! Thankfully i got a perfect fit in my other dress, so overall RTR was a huge success for me. This is a beautiful dress and a great choice if you are very petite!

Gorgeous gown, my boyfriend though it was just so beautiful on me.
I got the 0 & 2. The 0 fit great except in the chest and then the 2 was just a little too big. I had to wear the 2 though since the chest was so tight in the 0. Other than that it was great!

Very flowy and elegant!
I loved this dress. The fit was very flatte3ring and was great for a "less than perfect" figure. It is very flowy and feminine. I wore it to a black tie charity gala and it fit the occasion perfectly. If there weren't so many amazing choices offered by RTR I would consider renting it again. I am just barely 5'6", and decided to go with the 8 Long. I wore 4" heels and I have to say it was still a little on the long side (drug on the floor just a tiny bit) But I think this added to the overall effect and much preferred a little extra length over it being too short. It was difficult to zip on my own and at first led me to believe it was slightly too small. It turned out to just be3 a weird angle, and with a little help from hubby it zipped e3asily and fit like a glove.

A great formal dress for the Marines Ball!
I wore this dress to the USMC Ball to celebrate the 237th birthday of the Marines. It was a great color and the fabric was nice. The dress fit just right! I'm 5 feet and I could walk barefoot with it just touching the ground. I did wear 2 inch heels and it still looked great. I got a lot of compliments throughout the evening.

Nice dress. I received alot of compliments. 1st time renting and def. not the last.
Im glad I received a free 2nd dress with my first rental. I originally ordered a size 2 but to be on the safe side i got a 0 too. I tried on the 0 first and it fit. Thank goodness for the second dress. The size 2 probabaly would've been big. But i dont know because i didnt bother trying it on. While everyone wore a mermaid dress i was the only one w a one shoulder dress. Dress is comfortable.

Just didn't work out
I'm 5 feet exact and the dress fit well length size. i had to size up because i am a C cup and it seems like this dress would look better for really thin girls. Overall the dress is very pretty but it just didn't work out for me.

I got compliments all night! I am between a 4 and 6. I think I ended up wearing the 4. One note- I am 5'9" and the R was too short and the L was too long! I ended up wearing the L with very high heels.

Got this as a back up dress but ended up wearing my first choice. The color is nice but the streamer ribbon stuff on the shoulder looked a little worn. Also no give in the bodice at all. Long for me.

I felt gorgeous with my date because of the flowy dress!
i would give this dress 5 stars, but unfortunately RTR told me they had no more size 0R (when it was of course available when I added it to my cart 1 month before my event). 3 DAYS BEFORE MY EVENT! That made me realize always have a back up dress! so that was a bummer. Crossing my fingers, i hoped the 2R would work and thankfully it did! It was not a snug as i hoped but it was good enough for me. The 0R would have been perfect though. By the way, if you have small boobs, this dress is perfect. AND if you're kind of on the short side, this dress is even more perfect. I never thought i could pull of a long dress because of my height, but the measurements were perfect! i only had to wear 2 inch heels. I got so many compliments through out the night and although there was a lot of stress before prom due to the size incident, it turned out amazing.

Didn't work
I rented this as one of my two choices for a family wedding. I just had two babies back to back and am still a little soft around the middle so I was looking for a style that would be forgiving of my midsection. I normally wear a 10 or 12, and I rented the 12L. I am a 36C and I could BARELY zip the dress over my chest. You definitely need to go up a size. (My sister in law rented a dress by the same designer and had the same problem) The dress is beautiful, but after wearing maternity clothes for on and off for 3 years, I am tired of the empire wasted dresses. Nicely made and a very pretty color, just not the dress for me.

My husband just returned home from a combat deployment to Afghanistan and I wore this dress to his battalion gala held in Las Vegas. It was perfect for the occasion!!
I rented this dress and the CARMEN MARC VALVO Lifetime Love Gown, but decided to wear this one for a Marine Corps ball in Vegas. The dress is more on the modest side, which was good for me. It is snug in the bust area (I'm only a 34B). It fit very well, but was still forgiving for an imperfect figure. I wore with short heels (2") and it was the perfect length.

Great dress
I had originally ordered a different dress but it didn't fit. I called RTR, it was Friday almost end of day and I was on PT. My worse nightmare came true and here I was last minute. Of course my internet in the hotel wouldn't work so I had to call and just try to pick another dress from memory and the wonderful help and advice from the RTR staff. I actually own this dress in black so I played it safe and ordered this one knowing it would fit. It was delivered on time and had no issues with my order. The dress was super comfy and just fit in length so I was able to wear flats. Being 6 ft that was fine with me : ) I had a baby 5 months ago so it was a forgiving dress. Thanks to RTR for making it so easy and for being so helpful. I will definitely order again.

I loved how the dress flowed, and many of my sisters told me how gorgeous the dress looked on me!
I was nervous about renting a dress online for my sorority's formal, but I was very pleased overall. I loved the one shoulder look and received a ton of compliments from my sisters! There were a couple of problems though. The dress was tight in the bust keeping me from being able to wear and bra, and it was hard to zip it by myself. Also, the stays in the back of the dress poked me all night. If the size 10L had been available for a backup size, I would have probably worn it instead. Overall, it's a great dress, and I will most likely rent again next year!
