Beautiful Dress, Lots of Compliments

I wore this for a black-tie gala. The smaller size fit but the zipper was too difficult to do solo, so I ended up wearing the back up. The zippers were difficult on both dresses at the seam, but other than that I loved this dress! I'm short (5'4) and wore 3 inch heels, which made the dress the perfect length for me. It's comfortable and the pictures don't do the dress justice. It is so beautiful. I really loved this dress!

Because of RTR, I was the only one at my Prom with this dress because it's so unique!

I had a great experience with RTR! I would definitely use it again for future special occasions and I would recommend this site to all of my friends and family!

Tons of compliment ! The color of the dress was just perfect

It runs large size, I could have better fit with size8. It's loose around the bust area , you may need a strapless bra for it to fit. The length was good with 3" wedge heels. I loved the dress in overall. Definitely RTR customer for life

I received so many compliments on this dress! It felt great to wear such a beautiful gown.

This was my first RTR order and I was really pleased with the process. I had a baby almost 7 weeks before I wore this dress, so my body is not quite where it used to be. I'm not even sure what my current size is. I was unsure what size to order, so I went with an 8L and a 10L as a back-up. After reading the reviews from the red and black dress that matched this style dress (since this dress didn't have any reviews yet), I decided to go with the long instead of the regular. Once I received the dresses and tried them on, I realize they were just too long. I was going to have to wear 6 inch + heels and I didn't want to do that. Also, the 8 was too tight in the rib cage and the 10 was too big in the bust. I contacted RTR and requested to have an 8R overnighted to me. I also watched what I ate the day before my event, hoping that would be enough to make the 8 a little more comfortable around the waist/rib cage. Luckily, it worked! The 8R was perfect! I wore 3 inch heels with the regular length and the dress nicely skimmed the floor without being too long. Just for reference, the tightest part of this dress is right at the highest part of the waist just at the rib cage/just below the bust and the measurement at my rib cage right now is 31.5 inches. The 8R gave me a tight fit but was not uncomfortable. The 10 was a little too big for that measurement, especially since I couldn't fill out the bust. There is no stretch in this fabric so keep that in mind when ordering. The pockets were a huge plus!!! Plus, my husband loves the idea of me renting a dress instead of buying one and having it take up more space in a closet. I would definitely recommend this dress and RTR!

Great dress but tricky zipper!

I really loved this dress! It was light weight, made my waist look tiny, the length was perfect and it had pockets! This dress came to me with the tags still on it, I've rented from RTR a few times and this was the first time I received a brand new dress so I was super excited! The only downfall to this dress was the zipper was really tricky even on the hanger which is why I ended up choosing a different dress.

I wasn't able to wear this dress... I'm petite and it was too long for me but beautiful material

I rented this dress for my brother-in-law's wedding. I absolutely loved the look but I am petite and it was way too long for the outdoor cocktail hour and even with heels I couldn't pull it off.

Elegant comfort with pockets

The dress fit great it was a little big around the open arm, but the waist was perfect. It was beautiful even prettier in the sunlight. The only difficulty was the zipper around the waist gathering even though there's plenty room. It is where the fabric gathered and there was a seam it was a little tough for an inch. It was consistent with the size bigger still was tough around that section even with plenty of room. Pockets were great, but phone (iPhone 6plus) fell out a couple of times when I held it up to go up and down stairs. Perfect length with 2.5 heels. Many compliments and would recommend it!

The dress is incredibly beautiful and elegant.

Fit was fine, but the zipper binded and would not go up or down where the ruching is high on the waist. The zipper was tougher to move through the ruching on the 3 other dresses that I tried on, as well. The tab of the zipper was pulled off trying to move it up or down and I ended up having to cut the zipper (with permission from RTR) and wearing one of the other dresses ordered. As beautiful as the other dress was, I felt wanting for this one. It is an exquisite dress.

Gorgeous Dress!

I received a ton of compliments on this dress! It did run a little small for me; normally I wear between a 6-8. I would recommend ordering one size up from your normal size.

This dress was a hit! Perfect for the fall wedding in Quebec we attended! so many compliments!

Fit very true to size. Was a little snug in the rib cage area but that's what kept the dress fitted so nicely. Loved the pockets and the tule gave the right amount of "poof" to the dress without being too much. The zipper was tough to zip up with how it is sewn into the dress, but that's where my husband comes in... hah. Overall, Beautiful dress and highly recommend!

Elegant & stunning gown. Color is so vibrant. Many compliments received. Very comfortable.

I chose a regular based on the height recommendations and suggested heel size. I am 5'4" and wore a 2" heel. It was to the floor on me and needed care walking. The gown fit good, though my bust is 36 and completely covered, there was quite a bit of material in my waist and back. Not a perfect fit, but exceptional for a rental. I wore a Body by VS strapless bra and was comfortable the whole evening, never having to make adjustments. I liked the pockets for concealing lipstick. Terrific gown for a formal evening!

Another dress that wowed!

This dress worked out really well! Even though I was renting this for a black tie event (police and fire charity ball), I was concerned I would be overdressed. The dress looked formal and heavy in the pictures. There is definitely some poof to the dress, but it's actually much lighter than it seems! I received MANY compliments in this dress (becoming standard with RTR!) and people I didn't know were stopping me to say they loved the dress! The blue is more of a dark turquoise than a blue blue. This dress is long!! I am pretty tall, and could have easily worn my highest heels and it still would've been fine. I included two pictures so you can see the length, one with my husband at the event (1 in shoes), and another on my balcony where I don't have shoes on at all. You definitely want heels with the long, I had to be careful not to trip. My fault, I should've worn higher shoes. The bust was a little big, and because of that I chose to size down and wear the 0L. I have a small bust, so it was to be expected. Thanks RTR, I'll be back!

Royal Ball in Wash. DC-Crown Prince Couple of Denmark. Most wmn wore black-not me nor Princess Mary!

Highly recommend this gown. It not only looks and feels, but SOUNDS, dressy and fun - all the taffeta and tulle (? netting inside?) crunching and swishing against each other. It was a little gaping in the back but I just had a coworker safety pin it inside for me and then it laid perfectly.

The colors of this dress are absolutely amazing!

Unfortunately, this was too formal so I never wore it to the wedding. It was gorgeous on and perfect fit. The dress is a little long, but with heels you'd be fine. Everything about it was amazing! I'm so upset it was too formal for this wedding I had!

Everyone loved it!

Overall, the fit was true to size. I'm anywhere from a size 2 to a 6 depending on the brand and fit, so I went with the 4R. I'm 5' 1" and about 135lbs for reference. The waist fit great, but like other reviewers have said, the top runs large. I'm a 32D and the top was slightly "gapey" if I didn't keep my shoulders back. I think the top of the 2 would have fit perfectly, but the waist may have been too small (I ordered the 6 as my backup and didn't even take it out of the bag). Length wise it was LONG. I'm short, but I also wore 6 inch platform wedges and was still stepping on it occasionally. The material is heavy and expensive looking, and the fit is flattering and forgiving. The neckline was slightly high for my taste but I got so many compliments. Rent the Runway saves the day again!

This dress is not stretchy at all, the waist fell a little high for me. I am currently breastfeeding, so sized up to accommodate milk production throughout the night. The dress was a show stopper though and the pockets were perfect!

Liked it very much but didn't love it..

I am 5'3, 118 pounds & a 32DD. Size 2R was perfect! I wore a strapless bra and 3 inch heels. The length was perfect. It didn't drag on the floor, just barely skimmed it. I did step on the tulle underneath a few times. I also added a thin belt to add a little something to the dress. The zipper was a bit hard to grasp but nothing major. I received compliments all night! I would not rent this dress again but I would recommend this dress to anyone needing a gown.

Perfect! Fits great and made me feel very regal!

I loved this dress- I wore this for a work event, it was a little heavy, but its meant to wear as a guest and not for someone who was working the event like I did! But the zipper was extremely hard to zip up-had to have two other people to help me zip it! Other than that I loved it!

Great last minute substitution for my original pick!

I originally ordered a Lhuillier gown in 2 sizes (8 & 10L). The 8 was too small, the 10 would have fit but the zipper seemed damaged and would not go. Got in touch with customer service on Friday morning, and they hooked me up with this one as a replacement, which arrived Saturday morning, in the nick of time for my Saturday night event I got tons of compliments, loved the pockets (if you've ever worked at a formal event, you know what I'm taking about). I'm 5'7" so with 3" heels the hem just brushed the ground. I have another formal event in the spring and will definitely rent again.

I was unable to wear this dress.

I ordered this dress to wear to a black tie wedding. After reading other reviews, and seeing customers of a similar size/shape, I decided to rent a 4R and 6R. Unfortunately both sizes were way too small. I am definitely larger in the chest (34D), and I was unable to zip the dress more than halfway. Based on the location of the zipper/how the top was fitted, I am not sure if going up to an 8R would have worked for me either, and I feel like ordering up a size or 2 would've left the dress too big in other areas. I didn't want to give a 1 star rating, because honestly the dress was gorgeous. I loved the color, the style, and the fabric. I really wish I could have worn it to my event.

Very comfortable evening gown with pockets! Big in the bust

I am 5'8" and the Long was just a taaaad long with 2" heels. Not a deal breaker, but I definitely needed to pick the dress up when not walking on flat ground. My only real complaint was the bust - I'm a 32 F so no lack of boobs here, but even with a strapless bra, I had some room in the bust area. Otherwise it fit perfectly (the zipper was annoying, but if you have someone to help, and you can hold it together while they zip you're good to go.

This statement, floor length gown was perfect for a black tie wedding.

The one shoulder design allowed me to focus more on my makeup than stress about what necklace to wear with the dress. The pockets meant that I could easily carry a lipstick and ID with me without worrying about a clutch. The deep black and teal/blue color is perfect for any season. The size 10 was a bit large in the upper but due to the waist I went with this size for comfort though either size could have worked.

Couldn't wear it - way too long!

Title says it all. The dress was so long, and because it was very big (not size, just amount of fabric) there was so much material dragging on the ground I couldn't wear it. It was a bummer because it was a very pretty dress

Beautiful material

Gorgeous dress, but it was so long I kept tripping over it. I wore the 6 petite, but there was nothing petite about it. I wore 5 inch heels and it was still dragging and being stepped on. I couldn't walk without having to pick up the whole dress. The top was also too big (see picture) but the waist fit perfectly.

Beautiful gown with amazing pockets! Best idea ever!

Wore this beautiful gown to my husband's military ball. I'm 5'3" and wear a 12 (ish). Not really sure of my true size as I've been a nursing mom for the past 3 years for my two kids. I ordered the 14R to be safe. It was a tad bit large in the chest but I was able to put a couple safety pins in the back to make it a bit more tight. The dress was too long for me. Super comfortable! I would wear this dress again but in a smaller size.

Dress is beautiful but it failed

First, I love this dress. It was me feel gorgeous and the fit was perfect. I'm 5'11 and the tall was perfect! That being said I should probably give this particular dress a one star considering it failed me miserably. At the black tie event the zipper broke and almost had to leave the event. Fortunately, someone had a needle and thread and some safety pens to get me through the evening. I received compliments all evening about the dress and I did love it, but hated that the zipper was not of quality as the dress. I will use RTR again, but will definitely be conscious when trying items on if the zipper is tough to return it then so it doesn't ruin my night again.

More beautiful in person

I Loved this dress even more when I saw it in person. Unfortunately it was to small for me to wear. A 14 would have been perfect. Thank goodness this was just my backup dress. The color is stunning. I think the Long was good for me but a regular length probably would have worked.

Wore this for anniversary photos in the French Quarter

Let me begin by screaming about how much I love this dress! It was super super comfy (but the tulle can rub against your legs), HAS POCKETS, and is very flattering. My only complaint for this dress is that the top runs large. The 10L was perfect for me (5'7", 32" inseam and 38DD) but the zipper wouldn't budge on it (locked.) Even RTR suggestions of soap, etc. didn't work, so I wore the 12L. It was a little long, I threw on 4" heels and it worked perfectly. But the top was HUGE. Luckily this was for an anniversary photo session and we could clamp the back for photos. It wouldn't have worked for an event.

Fit wasn't perfect - not as high waisted as I thought it would be. Length was perfect with heels. Blue much brighter and more vibrant in person- more of a teal. Very heavy material - perfect for a formal winter affair.

Was a beautiful dress for a Southern fall wedding!

Was a little conservative, as the neckline is higher, but good for a wedding. Little tight to zip, but I was a little bloated when trying it on :)
