This dress is a show stopper! I got compliments all night.
This dress is a show stopper. I got compliments all night. The material is pretty heavy so it got a little warm despite the halter top. The dress has a silver sparkle to it that isn't captured in the picture.

Really looked fabulous at our beachside Gala.
Overall this dress was great and I got a ton of compliments on it. I would say the chest runs large and the neck strap was too long, so I fixed that by tying it in a knot before buttoning it. I wore the 10L because it was longer than the 8L, but could've worn the 8. I have on flats, but could've worn heels without the length looking strange. It's slightly longer in the back. The material is heavyweight like a drapery, so I would not rent this for an event where you might be hot. Perfect for Southern California weather though!

Stunning
This was a backup dress, after my first backup didn't work out. (Shoutout as always to RTR customer service!!) I am so glad I ended up with this dress. I've rented quite a few dresses, and this was my absolute favorite of all time. The material is shimmery, which isn't obvious in a lot of pictures. It's a truly beautiful dress. The material was a heavier weight, so this dress might be better for a fall/winter wedding. But it was unseasonably cool for a Friday in August, so it worked out great for me. I rented the 10L and the 12R. (Because that's what was available at the last minute.) I didn't notice much of a difference in the lengths, but the 10 wouldn't zip over my chest, so I went with the 12. The strap around the neck was a little long, so I just safety pinned it to a better length. I didn't have to wear a bra, because he boning that was built in gave me more than enough support.

Perfect standout for summer black tie wedding
I loved this dress. After seeing someone else in it at a wedding in June, I decided to go for it since my fiancée would be wearing a navy tux. It was perfect! I am 5'4" and short waisted, the only tweak I made was pulling the bodice up and fastening the halter strap with safety pins instead of the button closure- it worked great and that way the waist line rested on my actual waist and the skirt flowed better over my hips and the length was perfect. The fabric was great, it holds you in but isn't too heavy/sweaty. I will definitely consider renting this dress again!

Loved this dress! It was perfect for a July 4th black tie wedding on the beach!
The fit is perfect. The dress is very long though. The higher the heel the better! The fabric has an overall metallic sheen which makes the white a more silver like color. Highly recommend this dress!

Gorgeous, fun, and who doesn't love POCKETS?!
I absolutely loved this dress, and got so many compliments throughout the night! I rented this for a formal summer wedding, and the style was perfect. It was conservative enough for the traditional church ceremony (long, full coverage on top, not too low in the back) but fun and spunky for the reception (the slight glitter/shimmer of the fabric). Perks: I didn't have to wear a bra! There is boning in the bodice and a bra-style clip to keep the top secured in place. The fabric of the dress kept its shape, but wasn't heavy or too stiff to move comfortably. Cautions: I ordered the 8L based on previous reviews that the dress ran short, and I am so glad I did! I wore 2-3" heels and it ended up being the perfect length. The pockets don't lay perfectly flat. This didn't bother me much but might bother someone else.

4th of July Ball
This dress was fantastic! The material is heavy, so if you are in very warm and/or humid conditions, you will be hot. However, its a gorgeous option for A/C events. Very comfy. There is a shimmer in the material, making it super fancy. The cuts on the dress were perfect, and there is light boning in the torso area, which makes form fitting, yet comfy. In my opinion, it ran a little small in the chest area. I'm usually a 4P, but with my chest, I had to go up a size. It didn't make too much of a difference elsewhere. Its also very long, so plan on wearing your heals/wedges if you are short. I had on 4" wedges and the dress was still hitting the ground. But it looked so gracious. I would wear this dress again for sure!

Rhode Island wedding perfection
This dress! Gorgeous when I found it online and beyond gorgeous when I took it out of the rent the runway bag. The fit was great, perfect length for a small heel, but I am tall already so I didn't want to wear a giant heel. The pockets stick out a lot if you have hips. I ended up wearing spanx to keep the pockets from puckering too much. The sparkle is 100% more in person. You can hardly see it in any photos, but trust me it's SPARKLY! I received so many compliments throughout the night and I was so happy with my choice. Great dress!

Instant Classic
LOVED THIS! Felt amazing-danced all night. I can't say anything bad about this dress. It has a built in bra (amazing!) other reviews have issues with the pockets but these hadn't been opened yet and I think it's better that way so you don't have that flare in the hips. I wore a size 10 and could have done the 8 but it was a little tight in the back. Great dress!!

Pretty...but the pockets stick out!!
This dress was really beautiful in person. It is definitely more silver/navy rather than white and navy as it looked in the picture. It also has a like sparkle/sheen to it that I wasn't expecting- but was nice!! The reason it's 3 stars are the pockets. Was SO excited for them but unfortunately the pockets completely stick out. It's BAD. Nothing could get them to lay flat. It was not my hips, it was the dress. The top was also a bit narrow for my liking and I felt like I had armpit fat all night. I got a ton of compliments but it wasn't my favorite.

This dress was a hit at my brother's wedding. I felt like a million bucks!
The dress fits true to size. It has more of a shimmer to it than most pictures show. The dress is made with a heavy material so I would avoid wearing it in the summer, but it worked out perfectly for a February wedding on the water.

Comfortable and Flattering!
I loved this gown! It's quite sparkly, which I didn't expect, but it was still really pretty. The neck strap was a little loose, but I didn't mind. I didn't end up wearing a bra with it, and it worked out well. It was just long enough for me to wear short wedges. If I had worn higher heels it would have been too short. Overall, it was a super fun dress for a formal Southern wedding!

Lovely Dress
This is a beautiful dress. The colors are bold and have a lovely shimmer. The fabric is heavy but flows. The only problem were the pockets. They look like a flaw in the seam and do not lay flat. Ruined what would otherwise be great photos. There was also a small stain on the front of the dress. Make sure to wear a convertible low back bra as the regular strapless didn't work here.

Didn't wear
This dress just fit to strangely. I rented this as a backup and if just was an awkward fit. And I feel that the 4 would have even too loose so I don't think it was the size. It was a lot of side boob and was oddly sexy for a long dress. The fabric is very heavy and the length was very awkward just a bit too long for flats (I am 5'2) and with any kind of heel it was almost high watered. I just retuned it right away wasn't a fan. Also the pockets lay funny as noted by most other reviews.

Beautiful dress, awkward pockets
This dress fits wonderfully. I recently had a baby, and had no idea how this would look. The boning gave me a nice shape, and the fabric is comfortable. My only issue was the pockets. I realized why all of the other girls put their hands in their pockets for pictures. They pucker out and it's a little unflattering.

Elegant nautical theme
Fit perfectly, a little loose in the bust but I didn't wear a bra. Floor length and elegant and shimmery. The neck ties were a little long but you can just pin them together or tie a knot. I paired with a brown leather belt to make it a little less formal. Perfect for a formal boat cruise.

You guys, this dress has POCKETS!!
Wore this to a black-tie-optional ball and LOVED it! The nautical stripes are so unique and the dress has just the perfect bit of shimmer to it, which you can't really see in the photo. I'm 5'4", so I had to wear my tallest heels and it was still just a wee smidge long, but not a problem at all. Plus, POCKETS!! Big enough to hold a lipstick and a little money, or just find a place for your hands when you find yourself standing around for a minute. My only complaint is that the waist (where the two directions of stripes meet) is tight. I was ready to take it off by the end of the night. Also, the fabric is heavy, so you get hot while dancing or in a crowded room, but not too bad. Overall, I felt like a million bucks, no one else had a dress like it and I got several compliments!

Fun dress for bridal shower!
I ordered a 8L but I'm pretty sure a 8 regular was delivered, so I had to wear flats with my dress, when I would have preferred to wear wedges. Other than that, the dress looked great and I received many compliments on it. It was a super fun dress to wear to my bridal shower at a winery. I would definitely rent again.

I wore this dress to the red carpet premiere of my high school film. I felt like Blake Lively! It was elegant but still understated. I would recommend this dress to anyone. It was a little heavy but it's so classically beautiful. Amazing! Side note: I'm 5'6 and needed to wear 3" heels!

Ended a great year of hockey as President
Needed high shoes since I am only 5'5". The pockets were great, but did not lay flat. So I put my hands in them a bunch so it would not look odd. Fit like a glove and got tons of compliments. As others said, the sparkle was a great touch not seen in pictures. On another note, the back was open but the fabric was thick enough to not have to wear a bra. Always a plus!

So many compliments!
I loved this dress! The cut of the neckline was super flattering. I LOVED having pockets, but I will say, they did bow out a bit while I was wearing the dress. Honestly, I am probably the only one that noticed it, but it annoyed me just a little. I wore this dress to a black-tie optional wedding in September in Sarasota, FL. Let me tell you--if you plan on wearing this dress in Florida in the summer, you may want to reconsider. As much as I loved this dress, I thought I was going to have a heat stroke! The wedding was outside, so there was no escaping the heat/humidity. This dress's layers and thick fabric made it almost miserably hot. Besides that, this dress fit very true to size, and I was able to wear flats with the 6R without it being too short. The fabric doesn't stretch, so there's no margin of error when it comes to the size. I would totally rent this dress again!

Tons of compliments!
Wore this dress to the Grammys and got compliments all day long and from everyone who saw the pictures after! Pockets were a great touch and the dress was comfy for a 12-hour day. Strapless bra did not really work because it went a little too low in the back - used a stick on cup bra instead and that was perfect. I'm 5'4" and even with 3" heels it was a little long - just a little fashion tape on the bottom and was good to go. Would recommend this dress for sure!

I SO wish I could have worn this :(
I love love love this dress so much, but I couldn't wear it! The waist was a little snug, but very flattering - the stripes and cut of the fabric worked extremely well in the waist area. However, the bust would not work for me no matter what I tried. There is some boning sewn in, which would have made it possible to go bra-less if only there were more fabric in the bust! The cut on the side of the bust fell in a very strange place for me and made me sort of pop out the sides of the dress; also made the halter pull quite a bit on my neck, uncomfortably so. I tried wearing a strapless bra, which the dress covered in the back, but the sides of the bra showed out the sides of the front of the dress due to that severe cut. The fabric is navy and cream, as shown, and both colors have a sparkly silver thread sewn in. The dress did arrive with a small stain, and did not appear to have been cleaned, which was disappointing, but I couldn't wear it anyway, so it didn't end up mattering. The fabric is also heavy and ends up draping very nicely in the skirt. Would be perfect for a semi formal or formal wedding or event - the length and style are more formal, but the fabric makes it more versatile.
