The dress was perfect for the gala I attended. I received many compliments!
Very comfortable, but it was long. I wore very high heels to help the length.

Beautiful, one of a kind dress!
I rented this dress for my friend's wedding over Memorial Day weekend. I was supposed to receive it on Friday but ended up receiving it early Saturday morning, the day of the event. I was freaking out a bit because it was my first rental from RTR and didn't have a backup dress. However, once I received the box and tore it open, I tried on the size 8R and it fit perfectly and beautifully. The dress has a built-in corset that was not too tight. The length on me was slightly long. I am 5'5" and wore 4 inch heels and the dress dragged slightly in the back. I prefer too long than too short, so I was fine with this. This dress is great for women who, like me, are pear shaped. The skirt is lined but it is flowy enough to accommodate curvy hips like mine. I did not end up trying the 6R, the backup size I ordered because I was so relieved the 8R fit nicely. I would say this dress runs true to size, if not slightly large. I received many compliments on it. I was very impressed with how the dress came packaged and how easy it was to return. I can't wait for my next rental from RTR!

Perfect dress for formal Florida wedding!
The dress is a beautiful color with metallic accents for a unique look. It fit snugly at the top and a bit looser through the mid section. It was very comfortable for dancing through the night and I received a ton of compliments! Only minor flaw was at the top of the dress the fabric underneath was sort of folded over so it was showing when it shouldn't be. I was fidgeting with it all night but I am positive no one else noticed! Overall I had an excellent experience, will be renting again, and would definitely recommend this dress!

Back up dress
I used rent the runway for prom and this was the back up dress and I'm very lucky that this was the back up and not my first choice. For some reason one of the sizes was taken out of circulation and I give RTR so many props for getting me a replacement dress for free. However this dress, despite having ordered the long was no long enough by any means. Grant it I am 5'9/5'10 and I'm tall for a girl but usually a tall is enough to hit the floor. For this it was not the case

Gorgeous, but runs small
This was a gorgeous dress. I am between a 4 and a 6, but there was no way this was going to zip all the way up, even with my small bust.

Beautiful dress!
I was worried about the length being way to long because I'm the height that everything has to be hemmed. But it was perfect with heels, and they weren't super tall heels either. So I wouldn't let that stop you if you're worried about that!

Great dress for black-tie wedding!
Besides having trouble with the zipper (needed my roommate to be there to help zip it up), the dress was great. I wore it to a wedding in September and got multiple complements on it. I also thought it photographs really well. Great for people who like tight fitting on the top then loser on the bottom.

This breezy, romantic dress comes to life in person!
The periwinkle matched with neutral metallic dots was a gorgeous, luxurious mix and the length/flow of the gown made it breezy and dressy for a late summer wedding. The color of the dress is much brighter in person, and the length was just about perfect for walking on flat surfaces although I had to watch the back for dragging when walking outside (I'm 5'7.5" and wore 3" heels). I styled it with long gold earrings, a simple gold necklace and bangle with strappy gold heels. The only issue I had was that the corset inside the bust was a bit tight, and I had to be extra careful when the zipper would get stuck on the seams. Overall, I was SUPER pleased with my first RTW purchase, and would definitely recommend this dress as it got plenty of compliments! I felt like a showstopper :)

The dress was amazing! I will definitely be renting this one again! You have to rent this dress!
I normally wear a size 12, but thankfully, I grabbed a 10 in this gorgeous dress! So happy I did too, it fit like a glove. It was so comfortable, I would definitely rent this again. I wish I could buy it, honestly! xoxo

My event was great, but I did not wear this RTR dress.
This dress is extremely beautiful in person. It is more of a blue color, than the periwinkle color the picture shows.The fabric is very nice and the dress is quite breathable & flowy. I wound up not wearing this dress to my event because the fit on the bust area was not flattering. It was quite boxy around the bust area. I was not happy with how the dress made my bust look, so I opted for a different dress for the event.

Perfect, comfy fit with a whimsical feel for a fun, summer evening
Wore this dress to a formal summer wedding at a vineyard. Recommend ordering a size down from your usual size as the backup. I go between sizes 8, 10, and 12 depending on the dress, but the size 8 fit perfectly. I'm very tall (5'10) but wore flats to the wedding since we were on grass, and the regular length worked well. Would have wanted the long if I had chosen heels, however. Wore this with a regular strapless bra, which worked great. Overall, an amazing dress!

Loved the color
The dress is very pretty. DRAWBACKS: As with a lot of dresses of this material, the zipper stuck really bad on the waist and I had to have assistance putting it on. I couldn't wear a bra, because it made it a little too tight in the top, but the top provides enough support that you really don't need one, but it may be tough if your breasts are too big. The detailing on the top is pretty, but it doesn't look great in photos. Right above the waist line is a little puffy, which made me look a little fat in some photos. PROS: The fabric is nice and flowy. The color is beautiful, I got a ton of compliments. Purple seems to be the color of the season these days and a lot of women at the wedding were wearing purple. I wore wedges and it was the perfect length. I liked that it was comfortable to dance and eat in. Overall, it was a good pick!

The original dress I rented was stained and RTR had to overnight me this one.
This dress was a lifesaver. It was overnighted to my hotel and was a great fit! I probably would have ordered the 6 instead of the 8 because it was a little loose up top.

Fit well. Easy process. Lots of compliments
Many many compliments Very comfortable and easy to move in. True to size. Just Long enough for me (wore flats) and I'm 5'10" Loved that I didn't have to pick it up or pull it up all night/it has built in support. The silver detail actually is a silver embroidered dot w a gold threaded center. So jewelry and shoes could be either or both!

Wore this dress to a Black Tie wedding and got compliments all night!
I cannot say enough good things about RTR!! I had several dresses that I wanted to order damaged by the previous user and RTR shipped me 2 additional styles to make up for it---amazing customer service!! The dress was fantastic! I went with the 6L because overall it looked better more fitted than the 8L, however it was a little snug in the chest. I'm 5'8" and definitely needed the extra length to wear heels. Would definitely rent again!

The dress for me perfectly, it was surprisingly light. Great for a summer wedding.
The dress was true to size. There was one small issue with the dress though, when I received it the wire in the back from the corset was poking through the fabric. It didn't bother me but you were able to see it at times. Other than that the dress was perfect.

Perfect for a summer black tie affair!
I rented this dress for a black tie Florida wedding and it was the perfect color and weight. I rented a 2 and 0 based on reviews that the dress ran large, especially in the bust. I ended up wearing the 0 and that dress stayed put! My only "complaint" would be that the zippers on both dresses stuck at the waist so it took a little coaxing to get them zipped up! I'm also 5'5" and wore nearly 4in heels and the dress still grazed the floor so shorter ladies be careful! Overall another great rental!

Absolutely Perfect!
This dress was perfect for my cousins black tie labor day weekend wedding. I tried a size up which made my chest look flat and a size below which obviously didn't fit. The dress was right above the ground and I was wearing 3 inch heels. It's very lightweight and comfortable. The only flaw was that my helpers had a hard time with the zipper but I was able to do it myself, must've been the angle. I highly recommend for anyone who knows this style will work for them.

The color!!
This dress is amazing. It's a little long but I am 5'8" so it worked. I have a 34c bust, I probably could of worn a size up because of my bust but it would have been too large on my waist. It is comfortable and doesn't need to be pulled up all night. The color is stunning, a bright periwinkle with gold colored dots. The only problem is I want to wear it again!!!

Gorgeous!
So I rented this dress for a friends wedding in Monterey and I have to say it fit great and I felt so beautiful wearing it. I ordered it in 10 and a size 12 since I can usually go between the two, I was very pleased when I tried them on and the 10 fit perfectly, it runs true to size. This was my second time renting from RTR and was not disappointed! Looking forward to my dresses for this next weekends wedding!

The gold and periwinkle combo was a real stand out.
Great for someone who is small busted. Get one dress size smaller than usual. It was very fun to dance in because the skirt is so flowy. It was long though even with a 3" heel so it was hard to walk in.

Gorgeous dress!
This dress was definitely a winner. I wore it for a formal wedding and got many compliments. It is very light so it is perfect for a summer event. It ran a bit large, so by the end of the night I had to pull it up and readjust a few times. I would get a 4 if I were to wear it again. Other than that, it was perfect!! Make sure you have heels to wear with it because it is long. The color and the metallic spots on the dress are beautiful!!

A Great Summer Black Tie Dress!
This dress is awesome. A good choice for a formal summer event. Lightweight for the heat, but still with all the glitz of a black tie dress. Fits really well. My bust is larger, but the bodice still fit. Everywhere else, I probably could've worn the small size, but the four fit well, especially with the inner corset hook at the waist. Length was spot on, I wore four inch heels. Danced the night away. Absolutely a winner.

I wore 4 inch heels which was the perfect height. The one con I would say is the zipper was a little cheap. It was very hard to zip.

Perfect for a summer black tie wedding.
I received SO many compliments from a variety of people. Loved this dress and my entire RTR experience. A few helpful points: -I'm 5'6" and did not wear heels. The Hollywood fashion tape through RTR was perfect to adjust the length. Without the tape, I probably could have worn 3"-4" heels and been fine. -The sparkles on the dress adjust well to gold or silver jewelry. I chose gold with diamond-y jewels, and the elegance of both the earrings and dress fit perfectly. As you can see from others' photos, You can totally adapt the accessories to your style. -I'm small chested, so I chose to wear a bra in addition to the frame of the dress. In my opinion, that can definitely go either way depending on your comfort.

I wore 2 inch wedges with the 6L and it worked perfectly for length, although, I think I would have needed a long even without the wedges.

I felt like Cinderella in this dress! Got so many compliments and danced the night away!
I was worried about the top fitting alright because I'm well endowed in the chest department, but this dress was a winner! No bra needed. Fit tight enough to hold everything in place but loose enough to where I could definitely still dance and have a great time. Do order down a size from what you usually wear. 4L was great for me (I'm 5'8 and wore 4 inch wedges and you could just barely see my toes when I walked). Fabric was light and airy. Top was gathered in and bottom was flowy. Very flattering if you're looking for a dress that skims away from your body a little past the waist. Would absolutely rent again!

Feeling like a red carpet movie star in this gown!
The dress is incredibly beautiful in person! The periwinkle blue and the silver spots just make it pop and I received a ton of compliments on it throughout the entire night. My one complaint would be the zipper! I needed 2 people to zip it up, not because it didn't fit but because the fabric bunched together halfway up. Other than that, it was an awesome dress to wear! I ended up going down a size from my regular size 8 to a 6. The 8 fit, but was a little loose. The 6 fit like a glove and it looked better. The length is long, however, 4 1/2 inch heels fixed that problem :) When I took my shoes off later to dance I didn't mind lifting the gown.
