Loved this dress!!!

This dress was stunning, comfortable, and the pockets were clutch. I received compliments from the moment I stepped out of the hotel to go to our event until we got home. Very comfy, I could have sized down to the 2, but the size 4 was a little more roomy and made dancing all night a breeze. I'm a little top heavy (32DDD or 34DD for reference) but the dress fit perfectly without a bra and the boning was supportive throughout the night.

Unique formal dress that is truly comfrotable

This a beautiful gown that is a great option if you're short and afraid of the length of long gowns. The internal bodice holds the dress up nicely, and the pockets are a huge plus. I had to pack it in a suitcase and it came out with no wrinkles. Loved the pop of red.

Pretty colors

This was going to be for a Marine Corps Ball and the colors were perfect. Unfortunately it was right across my chest and back and then too big in the waist. I think better for a more straight and narrow build and maybe then size down.

Perfect Gala Dress!

I went into the actual store to try it on and it didn't look great on the hanger. But when I looked in the mirror it was breath taking. I am a size 6 and I took the 8 because they didn't have my size. But it was fine because the dress was comfortable. It cinched at the waist so it looked fitted. The arm bands cover up a lot if your nervous about exposing them. There is a built in bra, but I still wore a strapless for extra support. The back of the dress is longer than the front. And there are pockets!!! So you don't have to carry a clutch. I received compliments all night long. My husband wants me to buy the dress.

Beautiful and stunning yet very comfortable

This dress was the most amazing dress. The material is stiff so it creates very smooth lines. I wore no bra or shape wear with this dress. I loved everything about this dress.

Tons of compliments!

I received multiple compliments on This easy to wear gown. The 8R was a little large in the bodice, but the 6R was too small in the chest. Very classy and elegant. Perfect for a formal November wedding.

Classical elegance!

This dress was lovely and absolutely perfect for the US Marine Corps Birthday Ball. Such classical elegance. I got compliments all night long, and several that I looked like Snow White in this gown! The fabric was wrinkle resistant, and the boning in the bodice meant I could go bra-less which I loved. Plus, who doesn't love pockets?! Honestly I felt as gorgeous as my wedding day in this and didn't want to send it back.

Perfect dress for a formal affair

I absolutely loved this dress- the material was lightweight and the high low hem was just the right length. The straps/sleeves are not necessary, but I could easily tuck them into the dress and no one knew. I'm bigger busted (34 DD) and have recently lost some weight- I was able to wear a strapless bra and had the support I needed. Being in Washington, DC- inaugural balls are around the corner and this will definitely be a contender.

Simple and classy!

I wore this for a military ball and got so many compliments! My husband actually picked the dress out and I'd say he did an amazing job! I had initially ordered the size 6R with the 4R being my backup. I got an email last minute saying the 6R wasn't available but fortunately I was able to squeeze into the 4. This runs true to size and I would wear it again....but in the 6 for a tad extra room.

Fabulous dress!

This dress was just what I wanted for my formal holiday work party. I felt super glam and got tons of complements all night. I am usually between an 8 and 10 and the 8R fit perfectly. I loved wearing this dress and the rich color and material were a big part of that - the pockets were also a plus! The only issues were that the hook and eye on the back was broken when I received the dress and the boning on one side of the bodice was poking through the fabric. It wasn't noticeable but uncomfortable as it was scratching my skin.

Gala dress - first experience with RTR. Easy to do and very professional service.

Beautiful dress. I am allergic to metal so jewelry is no longer an option. Dress has gorgeous clean lines with an interesting cut in the bodice and skirt so jewelry wasn't necessary. Color is darker than I though but still amazing. I am small chested and the bodice was snug. The boning in the top was uncomfortable but tolerable. Would recommend this dress. Got lots of compliments and it was fun to wear!

Best dress of the night!

Fits great! Love love the pockets. I got so many compliments! The high-low was great for someone short like me. No bra needed. Comfortable to dance in and I was still able to raise my arms up. Only complaint was the wire on the side of dress dug into my side (wire to the top of dress is like a corset).

Multiple compliments on the dress the night of the event and from photos!

I rented this for a New Year's Eve of the Eve black tie optional event. The cut and color made the dress stand out at a party with over 1,000 people in attendance. I am normally between a 4 and a 6. Only the 6 was available so I wore that. I had no issues with the dress sliding down, even if it was a strapless style. There is a sticky strip at the neckline that holds it in place. The one issue I had was I had to take my arms out of the sleeves to get a coat on. You can't lift your arms in this dress.

Stunning design

This dress is absolutely beautiful on. It is so well-made. I usually don't wear strapless dresses because I don't like to have to constantly fuss with the top, but this dress was designed to stay up and stay in place. I got so many compliments on the look of the dress, I just lost count. I wore this to a Mardi Gras ball, but it would also be appropriate for any type of business oriented event or charity event because it is modest and not revealing.

Loved this Dress!

I loved this dress and i received so many compliments at the wedding. It's great for any formal affair. i recommend a size smaller than you normally wear because the materially is so stretchy, and you don't want the cuffs to be lose. If you are wide around the rib cage like me, because cautious of the underwire. After a few hours it was digging in and was a little uncomfortable. Overall a great fit!

What a great dress!!!

I wore this dress for a military awards banquet. I had compliments the entire night! The dress fit snugly up top and I had no problems with the sleeves as other reviewers indicated I may. The dress flowed beautifully and I wore 3 inch heels and dress did not drag. I am 5'3. It was beautiful and wore very well. It also had hidden pockets which was a huge plus. I would definitely rent this dress again if given the option. Do not sell this dress short...it's simplicity makes it very elegant and more stunning than other dresses with more glitz. I did have to size up a size due to the structure it has up too.

This dress was so so amazing, I wore it for my engagement photos and it was truly stunning

The fit was great, forgiving and flowy. Super easy to wear I didn't feel like a had to drag it around or hold it up, which is nice for someone who is 5'1" . I love that the dress is red inside, wear your red bottoms with it and it's magical :) great for photos, black tie wedding, or gala.

Elegance with pockets!

Fit true to size and received lots of compliments. Loved the fact the sleeves covered the worst part of my arms. Since I'm 5'4" the high low works great in length! Would definitely recommend for stunning Jackie O feel.

I did not end up wearing this dress because I thought the sleeves looked funny and it was too big. I usually wear a 10 but would have probably worn an 8 in this dress

Loved this dress!

I felt beautiful in this dress. I usually wear a size 4 but had to size up because I have a bigger bust. I wore the 6 and it fit well and stayed in place even after dancing. I'm short so the front was probably a bit lower than intended but it worked.

Rented this beauty for our engagement photos and was not disappointed. I'm 5'1 and it was the perfect length, so comfy, and oh so beautiful! I had no problem not wearing a bra since there is wiring in the bust area. So much perfection.

So many compliments! Love this dress.

This dress was absolutely beautiful. I received so many compliments and it fit perfectly. The only issues I had was it was very long for my height and when sitting down the seams in the dress dug into my waist area. I would definitely recommend renting this dress and I will do it again for my next formal event.

Nothing else like it - not even close

This dress is incredibly well made - the fabric is very rich and yes it is heavy. The boning helps really provide support especially in the chest area. I am 34 B-C and always have to wear a bra - I was skeptical when other reviewers said that the boning and structure of the dress provided enough support and that a bra wasn't needed. As usual, rent the runway reviewers never let me down and they were right - I didn't need to wear a bra and I was completely comfortable all night (didn't have to do any pull ups/adjusting of the top of the dress). With that being said, the material is very unforgiving and has virtually no stretch. Size up if you aren't sure. Of all of the dresses I have ever worn, (rent the runway, dresses I own, etc.) this has been my favorite dress of all time. For reference, I am 130 pounds and about 5'2. I wore 3.5 heels and the fabric barely skimmed the floor. Now go and rent this dress - you will not be disappointed. Rent the runway - you are truly untouchable and in a class all your own.

Best Rental Yet

I'm 5'0" and it's difficult to find a dress that fits my body correctly. This dress was absolutely phenomenal. Don't need a bra because it has some structure to the chest/stomach area. If I could have rated this higher, I would have! Wish they made other colors for this because I would rent again. Very classic. Got compliments all night. Only downside is that there was a huge stain on the 2R that I wore when it arrived, but I was able to clean it before the wedding.

Loved this dress, but the inside frame rubbed against the sides of my waist at times which was a bit uncomfortable. Other than that it was PERFECT for this black -tie wedding and I would buy it if I could ;)
