This was my first RTR rental and definitely will not be my last. I wore this gown to prom and received nothing but compliments. The two slits in the front gave the dress that extra spark and made it easy to dance. I recommend this dress to anyone who is considering it, you will not be disappointed.

It was a little bit loose on the bust, and had to hold it up a few times. It was really comfortable to dance in, though.

Stood out in a sea of gowns!
Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Man, did this dress make me feel beautiful. I wore the gown to an Inaugural Ball in January and even though there were thousands of dresses around me, I got compliments and stares all night long! The cut is extremely flattering (gave me hips!) and the slits at the bottom were not awkward at all. If you stand straight and walk normally, you can't even tell that they are there. At 5'6", I ordered the 4R and wore 3" heels and the dress was millimeters from the ground, so the length was perfect. I also paired it with gold bangles and a single gold ring, since the neckline is a statement piece all on its own. This was the first dress I ordered from RTR and is also my favorite!

i ordered this dress as a backup to a nicole miller dress and ended up loving it! i took a guess at my size and it ended up being perfect, although i will say that around my bust area it was a little snug, but it ended up being fine once i got it on. i recently gained a lot of weight so i wanted something that would make me look thinner and i totally think this dress worked magic! i'm moroccan so i totally went with a whole arabic theme for prom and the complements wouldn't stop coming! i legit love this dress cannot say enough!

Made my senior prom the best one yet!!
Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Honestly, I was very worried about this dress because it was coming in two days before prom and I had no idea whether or not I would like it. I was nervous about the two slits, but it turns out that it couldn't have been any more perfect. The color was beautiful. The gold sequins and cut of the neckline gave it a greek goddess feel that was so incredibly unique. I didn't want to go with a typical prom dress, and this was the perfect alternative. It was so easy to move and dance in , and I didn't have to worry bout it falling down at all. I would recommend it to anyone/everyone. (I wore flats with my dress because my date wasn't very tall, and it was the perfect length. I would have needed to 2 tall if I waned to wear heels)

Stylist Review
Size worn: 0L
Overall fit: True to Size

This is one of my absolute favorite gowns that we have at RTR! It is not a super fitted style, but it is still super sexy with double slits to show off those legs as you walk! I took a close up to show the gold detailing on the top of the dress! You cannot wear a strapless bra with this style, so I would recommend wearing a backless bra which worked great for me all night! I wore 5" heels and the length hit a couple of inches off of the ground.

Gorgeous dress! Elegant and sexy!
Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was beautiful! I loved the gold/black sequins around the neck and the sexy slits. This dress flowed beautifully when I walked. I ordered my normal size (8) and one size up (10) just in case. I was a disappointed to find out that the size that fit me better (size 8) had a small line of missing sequins on the chest area. I called RTR and they were quick to resolve the matter! I am impressed with the delivery and customer service of this dress, but I only wish the missing sequins were caught by RTR before shipping it to me. To sum it up, it was a gorgeous dress and I would definitely rent from RTR again!

If you are super self-conscious of the fat just under your armpits, this dress might undo you. I wore my hair down and long, which solved the problem very nicely. I loved everything else about it and wish it was still hanging in my closet!

First time using RTR and it was wonderful!
Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this dress to an Inaugural Ball. This dress was beautiful! The slits were gorgeous whenever walking or dancing, and showed off my legs without my ever feeling exposed. It was very comfortable for hours and and hours. It fits really true to size I wouldn't have gone down a size or up one. Overall it was very pretty if not a bit safe for my taste. I wore it with three-four inch black via spiga heels and it even looked good with my black leather jacket. Certainly worked for a black tie event at the last minute. Rent the Runway was awesome I'll certainly use it again for a big event.

Gorgeous Goddess Gown
Size worn: 10R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I really felt like Cleopatra in this gown! I wore it to a Mardi Gras ball and it was perfect! It FIT; I didn't have to wear shapewear underneath (a huge plus for me) and it took me through a sit-down dinner, dancing and breakfast! The leg slits are super sexy; I would definitely rent this again! I'm 5'8, 145 lbs, usually an 8/10. The 8 would have worked with some shapewear, but the 10 looked fantastic au naturel. The length was perfect for my height- I wore 3 inch heels. It only gets 4 stars because it arrived wrinkled. I called RTR and they said they'd reimburse me to have it steamed (they did), but it was one more thing to do on my event day that I stressed me out a little.

I wore this dress for a hospital Gala and it was perfect. The green color was just the right amount of unique along with the gold sequins op top. The length was perfect with 3" heels and it was confortable for a night of greeting, eating and dancing. The 2 slits were not inappropriate and were only visible while walking or dancing. Highly recommended!

I rented this as a backup dress for the Theia Golden Blossom Gown. The front slits are really sexy, but I didn't like that the pleats didn't lay down flat in the torso. I also didn't think this did much for my figure. I already have slim hips so I kind of looked like a ruler in this.

I actually used this dress to do my own rendition of Cleopatra for Halloween. Naturally the dress was very beautiful on and I would recommend it for any body type. It is comfortable to move around in and very flattering. It was a bit long on me (granted I am on the shorter side), nothing a pair of 5 inch heels couldn't fix!

Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: True to Size

Loved this dress and received a million compliments! Both the 6L and the 8L fit, but the slits in front are a bit high, so I went with the 8 for the extra length. Normally I feel that long dresses can be a bit bridesmaid-y, but this was elegant and unique. I would definitely rent it again!

I ordered this dress as a back-up dress. It was beautiful but too tight around the hips and belly area. Plus I ordered a long but received a regular so even if it had fit, after wearing my 5 inch heels, it would have been too short.

but a bit risque. On me, at least. I'm 5'9 and very short waisted (long legs). I was so excited about this dress and had rented it for a formal Christmas party. When I tried it on, I thought the slits might be too high, but my husband thought they were WAY too high. He actually made a reference to my father not approving. ha. It ended up going back to RTR without making an appearance outside of my house.

The dress is pretty, well-made, and definitely unique. Unfortunately, those slits were indecent on me. I'm tall, so maybe that was part of the problem, but I didn't feel comfortable showing that much leg. Overall, it's a great dress, just didn't work for me.

I wore this dress for the Bacchus Mardi Gras Gala in New Orleans. I received compliments all night. The dress has 2 ultra high slits in front which is very dramatic when you walk. I am 5'11" and the Long hit exactly where it should with 4 inch heels. I would purchase this dress at full price in a second if I could find it. I typically wear dresses with a lot of structure - this dress was airy but well constructed. No need for spanx and I even got away with not wearing a bra and both are hard for me to do.

Hurrah, the ONLY dress that RtR sent me in the size I ordered! Thank goodness I liked it, b/c the other dresses were no good and I would have been out of luck because their customer service never called me back on Saturday. All that said, the neckline is gorgeous, the length was perfect with 3" heels, and the double slits in the front were sexy as h*ll. I would rent it again, but probably one size smaller. Wear your hair up to show off the back.

Not good for women with any type of midsection they want to hide- Shows all bumps & bulges.
Size worn: 12R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
As much as I loved this color, this was not the right fit for my body type. Way too tight in mid section and then too big in the back/shoulder areas. As a 12 they expect someone taller and more slender. If you have curves, I would not recommend it.

I ordered this and another dress for a gala and ended up wearing the other dress. This was beautiful and I liked it; I decided to go with the second dress because it was more "fun" and easier to dance in. This dress ran a little big in the waist on me. I ordered a 2 and I don't think a 0 would have fit in the bust but the 2 was a tad baggy in the waist.
