Photographs so well!

The fit was true to size, and the only con for this dress was that the flowy bottom made for a little peep show when we were spinning while two-stepping. Other than that, gorgeous!

Torso is way too long!

I went up in size because I'm a 26 waist, but 32E bust. The top of the nude part of the dress ended under my bra! I was so upset by this dress, it is definitely not bust friendly.

Gorgeous dress for a romantic evening!

This dress was perfect! I wore it out with my husband for out anniversary dinner celebration in San Francisco. It was actually one of his choices. The length on the 10 was perfect (8 was a little short in the skirt and lining ). The cap sleeves and bodice are also lovely. The dress has a corset style top with boning underneath the lining which helped keep the dresses shape. I wound up wearing a strapless bra underneath for support reasons but could have gone without it if I had worn the 8. The transition between the skirt and bodice on this dress were very flattering for my shorter frame. The only downside was that it was pretty windy while walking in the city, so I had to hold my dress with both hands to keep from having a Marilyn Monroe moment. If I had worn a longer, slightly heavier jacket this could have been avoided but c'est la vie!! It was a wonderfully romantic evening and I felt beautiful!

Pretty dress.

The dress was pretty, but ran large on me so I added a belt to bring in the waist a bit. Also the underlining fell a bit long on one side no amount of tugging and pulling could fix it. Once I left the house I forgot about it, but still a bit annoying.

Not a flattering fit.

Rented this dress for a formal affair, luckily I had a backup size. It was not what I expected. The length is a little off and the shoulder area was a bit baggy. Luckily I had a back which was perfect.

Did not end up wearing this dress.

I ordered two RTR dresses to try for a work Gala, and this dress just didn't fit right. I have narrow shoulders and the cap sleeves puckered and slumped, plus the waist was a little too high. It was a nice dress, but not for me.

I loved this dress and the rent the runway experience!

The dress ran a little big on me and it was short but Im 5'9. I loved the dress overall though, the fabric was beautiful and I felt beautiful in it! If I knew how short it was I would have worn stalkings with it for the wedding that I attended.

The dress was very pretty, no regrets here!

The dress was very nice and great material. The top of the dress was a little roomy in the chest and sleeves. However, i don't think I could comfortable fit into a 0. If I hadn't worn a padded bra, it would have been very loose up top. I also had to push the back of my bra down so that it wouldn't show at the back. I wish the cap sleeves were more fitted around my shoulders. The bottom of the dress was fab! The lining really did add a lovely color to the dress. Many users mentioned the gold lining hanging down past the black lace, but I didn't have that issue at all! I loved how the dress' skirt swayed and swished, but it sometimes got a little bit scratchy when the lace rubbed on my thighs while walking. I'd possibly rent again, but maybe try a smaller size...not sure. Good value for the price though!

Pretty but SUPER long torso and overall large fit.

Rented this dress for a wedding and had to return it, unfortunately. Like other reviewers have said, the bodice of the dress is extremely long and the dress itself runs large. Beautiful dress, but perhaps better suited to someone a little taller.

Got lots of complements!

I was disappointed that the size 6 was damaged and couldn't be sent as the size 8 was a bit big and I definitely could have worn the 6. I got lots of complements on the dress and loved it! The nude lining did hang a bit below the black around the knees which seemed wrong.

Ladylike

A little big in the bust/shoulder area, but not enough so that anyone would notice - it was only something I felt. The dress was flowy and elegant and great if you are needing something formal and more conservative. This was perfect.

Was too large up top for me at my usual size of 4/6. I could have gone to a 2 and it would have been perfect.

Gorgeous Dress!!!!!

I wound up returning this dress and exchanging it for another because it was too tight on top. It is a gorgeous dress though and I only wish that they had the Size 12. RTR's representative Meredith helped me with the return and the exchange for another dress without a hitch. This service ROCKS!!!!!

Very tight in the bust & waist. I'm shirt so the back was very bunchy. You need to be a tall girl to wear this. Sadly I'm not.

Striking yet classic dress! Gorgeous fit.

This is the way to make an entrance! Fit like a glove. I loved the boning, made my waist look small. Gorgeous lace with just the right amount of shimmer. Such a high-quality garment. Comfortable despite zero stretch. Got tons compliments all night. I really loved it!

Not great if you are tall

It's a very pretty dress but I am glad I ordered a backup just in case. If you are tall and also have a large bust, his is not the dress for you. It was tight and short and the waist started high up on my rib cage. Not a good look. Probably better for petite - average height - slim types without curves.

The built in corset was not my friend...

This would have fit perfectly had it not been for the built in corset, which, probably because of my height (I'm 5'1") cut into my lower stomach area instead of higher up on a taller person, creating an unattractive bulge / fat roll poking out from under where the corset ends. Due to this, I didn't end up wearing this, although it was very pretty in person.

This was the smallest 10, but only because of the corset. Also, I found it to be itchy (most others have not).

BEAUTIFUL LACE

This was a perfect pick for an evening wedding in Los Angeles. The lace & detailing are simply beautiful. I expected to wear the 6 but the 4 was a better fit. The stylist suggested it needed gold accessories because of the tan slip. And that's what I selected (Alexis Bittar Double Loop Encrusted earrings, DVF gold boombox clutch). However, I believe white gold or silver would be just as fabulous.

Didn't end up wearing this one

The dress was nice - it fit and made my waist look tiny! but the lace was a bit itchy and scratchy. I knew I would be uncomfortable dancing in it all night at a wedding. So I didn't end up wearing it. The bottom did fan out a lot in the back - kinda made me look like I had a big(ger) booty! I would recommend it to girls with small or flat butts. And if you don't mind the scratchy material. I just liked another one so much more - otherwise - I prob would have ended up wearing this one.

This dress was great and fit perfectly.

The dress fit great but would definitely recommend that you should wear a belt to split up all of the lace. The lining on the bottom kept showing so that was a little annoying but received a lot of compliments on the dress.

Classy & Elegant

I rented this dress for my husband's workplace Christmas party. I didn't want to look too stand out, wanted look classy and also elegant. And this dress was just right! I looked very classy and also enough to stand out. Fabric itself has mild glittering effect also. I matched with thin purple colored belt and clutch. I wish I could keep this dress..... But I'm going to rent it again!

LOVE this dress. The lace is gorgeous and in this full skirt style it is beyond cute! Such an easy fit as well, comfortable up top and roomy on the bottom. Perfect for pear girls! Definitely wearing to my next holiday party.

Adorable dress, lots of compliments!!

The fabric is beatiful. Very shimmery. I added a small patent bow belt and black tights since it was for an outdoor wedding in December. I'm 5'7" and felt it was borderline too short for a wedding. (I do tend to dress conservatively though.) Great dress, would definitely recommend!

Super cute dress, loved the key hole detail on back.

The size 12 was a little big and the size 10 was a little tight, so I went with the larger. I loved this dress. It was perfect for a New Year's Eve event.

I loved the full skirt of this dress. The bodice is tight, so it is very flattering. Great for dancing too! I wore with gold accessories since the underlay has more of a gold tint to it.

Nice dress overall

The size 6 was a bit large up top and around the waist. The gold lining also hung down beneath the black in some places and looked odd. The 4 fit well up top and around the waist and did not have any issues with the gold lining. I received several compliments on the dress.

Perfect dress for a formal to remember!

I wore this dress to my boyfriend's fraternity's formal on a riverboat in New Orleans. The dress flattered my figure so well--great for hiding a little extra weight around your butt/thighs, but emphasizing a small waist. As a plus, it moved gorgeously when we were dancing--I couldn't stop twirling around the dance floor! The only bad thing I can say is how sad I was to send it back. This was a great experience and I'll DEFINITELY be renting again soon.

I want to own it!

So I actually ordered the 4, but they accidentally sent me the 2. I was able to get it on and wear it, but it was SO tight around my mid section. I was uncomfortable all night, but it was so cute I had to wear it and I didn't have time to swap it for the right size. I think the 4, what I ordered, would have been perfect. I added a gold sparkly belt and wore tan/nude shoes. I wore it to a rehearsal dinner. I loved it so much I really would like to buy it. I was bummed about the size mix up, but RTR made it right. Will definitely rent again!

Super classy, but still fun!

Wore this to a work gala and I felt great! The 4 fit better in the waist, but was too short to be appropriate. The 6 was a touch big, but length was a lot longer. I loved the key hole back too!
