Last minute rental

I rented this gown last minute from RTR. I literally ordered it the day before and it showed up before noon the next day!!!! I ended up wearing the back up size 14L which was kind of big on top but fit well on my hips. This dress is beautiful. Tons of compliments. Worth every penny! I'm returning my $1300 gown that I purchased at NM and am able to donate that money to the charity we were celebrating. Thanks RTR!!!

Lovely

This dress is lovely and fit me well. However, it was my backup dress and I liked the primary more, so I wore that one. Note: the zipper is down the side under the one shoulder, so the dress has to go overhead to get into/out of it. Depending on how your hair is styled, this may be an issue. It's a lovely dress, with a nice fit and great length for my 1.5 inch heels.

Tons of compliments!

This was my back up dress (first choice ended up not being available) and I was truly happy with it! Fit like a glove and very comfortable! The length was perfect for me with 3.5" heels. Just brushed the floor (I prefer that look vs above my heels) tons of compliments on this dress!

Elegantly designed! This dress was beautiful, slimming & I️ felt comfortable & confident.

Went a size up as this was a back up pick and while the dress was a little big in the chest it still fit nicely through my body.We all know if you can make it through a formal affair feeling beautiful, confident and comfortable, that's a major win!!!! This dress was elegant, classic and with pearls it was timeless

Beautiful dress!

Wore this to a holiday gala and it was perfect. Fabric is lovely and has some give. It was very wrinkled so make time to press it. The zipper is very sticky and was defective on the alternate size so I receuited help to get it zipped AND unzipped.

An amazing silhouette

The dress was a little snug on me, but I believe some of that was due to bloating from being newly pregnant. I was comfortable all evening and the length allowed for a little train behind me which I loved. I would definitely rent this dress again.

Fitted and gorgeous

I ended up wearing my other rental. This hugs your body nicely and the length was perfect for me at 5'8". The ruched side was good for those with a "Mommy pouch."

Nice formal black dress

I ended up wearing this dress for my NYE wedding I attended. The dress was flattering, but I did feel like the longer I wore the dress the more it stretched out. You definitely needed to be large chested to fill the top and keep the dress up. The back also has a slight train so, it makes the dress very long.

Simple with a bit of flair

This was my backup dress. Simple with a little extra touch in the sleeve ruffle. Perfect and comfortable. Back of dress is a little bit longer than the front. Needed a strapless bra and the draping was a little big on the side. Really loved this dress and would wear it again.

Classic, Elegant, Makes a statement without "Trying Too Hard"

This was my backup dress for a black tie event. My first choice was way too big, but this-- fit perfectly, very (very) comfortable, and looked so feminine & elegant that is should have been my first choice all along. True to size. I'm slightly over 5'7", 124lbs, and I had to wear almost flats (way more comfortable than stilettos, but just saying- it's not super long). I went without a bra. Size 2 fit true to size. I will be renting this one again!

So many compliments on this dress. Its a classic style with subtle sex appeal!

I wore the size 10L to a black tie fundraiser event. I'm 5'5" and usually wear sizes 10-12. The dress fit perfectly and was the perfect length with 4" heels. It's very comfortable and well made. I would definitely rent again!

Fit true to size although a bit mong. Im 145lbs and 5'4" and i wore three inch heels. The material stretches a little and the ruching helps hide a belly.

Fantastic cut, beautiful gown. Loved wearing it!

This was my back up option and I'm so glad I had it because my first option looked awful. This dress is made out of 100% poly, form fitting but because it's rushed at the waist, it's very forgiving. Loved the shoulder detail. Definitely had a wear a strapless bra with it though because the fabric was thin and a little loose up top on me. It was super comfortable and easy to dance in. Received lots of compliments! Fab choice and I highly recommend you try this dress!

I felt like royalty!!

This dress was my backup and I am so glad I picked it! I am 5'3 and wore simple 3 inch heels and it was long enough and I didn't trip over it. I was completely comfortable the whole night! I have another event in a month and plan to rent this in a different color! YOU NEED TO RENT THIS DRESS!!!

Such a comfortable dress!

This dress was very comfortable... lots of stretchiness for ease of movement. Very pretty and versatile-you can wear the shoulder as high or low on the arm as you want to. Loved it.

A classic!

When my first rental didn't fit, this one was still available, so RTR was able to overnight it, which was awesome. The dress worked great for me. I'm 5'9 and wore 3" heels. It could have been a little longer in the torso. The "long" added extra length, but didn't really account for height elsewhere. The material is snug, but very forgiving, (I had a baby 6 months ago, it hid the pooch). The style is an easy, elegant classic!

Incredibly comfortable dress for Mayor's Ball

This was not my first choice but I ended up loving it! This dress was super comfortable but sophisticated. The fabric had some give and camouflaged my belly fat. The fabric is a little heavy but not to the point of being annoying. Only issue was that the top ran a little big., I def needed to still wear a bra and pin the dress to it to keep it up. Also, I'm 5ft 7 and wore 3 inch heels and the dress was still a little long. Overall I highly recommend this dress for all figures!

The elegance and comfort of this dress

This dress was absolutely flattering. This was my first time using Rent the Runway and I was more than satisfied with my selection. Delivery was on time and the convenience of ordering online was incredible. I felt that the selection of dress hid the tummy area problem. The dress was comfortable and moved with you. If you are looking for a flattering dress this is for you! I only wish the bottom was a tad bit shorter or you need a really high heel.

Perfect dress for the formal Gala I attended!

The fit was nearly perfect, and I could zip it by myself when getting ready, which was a plus! I appreciated the placement of the ruching across the waist, I thought the fit and cut were very flattering. It was a simple elegant dress and I felt beautiful in it! I have a larger chest but I still felt like my shoulders weren't quite broad enough for the top lining of the dress, it gapped a tiny bit but dress tape would fix that! I'm 5'5.5" and wore 3" heels and the length was perfect. Overall I loved my first experience with RTR!

Lots of compliments! My red carpet moment

5'4 - 32 DDD - 165lbs I wear a 12p pants, so it was a little loose on the top. I wore a padded bra and some pasties it worked well. Material was very rich and super comfortable to dance with. I wore it with 4inch heels and I still had to lift the dress a little when I walked. Lots of compliments for a black tie event.

Flattering Dress

Very flattering great if you have areas you want to downplay. This was my backup but I ended up wearing it for the event. I am 5'9 so I would definitely get the long if you are tall.

Beautiful dress.

Loved it. The only reason I gave 4 stars is bc the dress had a slight odor, and the top was big in the chest. Maybe that's normal for the size. I made some adjustments to make it work.

Beautiful gown, hugs you in all the right places!

Third time renting with RTR and another great success. This dress fit perfectly. The front of the dress has a very slight ruching across the mid section which is perfect to hide the belly. I ordered size 12 and 14, not sure which one would fit better. I used the size 12. This is a beautiful gown, I would definitely recommend it.

So comfortable and flattering!!

Amazing dress! Flattering, stretchy so it was incredibly comfortable! I feel like my hips are wide and this dress helped me to feel like they weren't at all!! The strapless side stayed in place all night! It's just a tad longer in the back which makes it absolutely perfect! I am 5'3" and wore 4.5 inch heels. The length was perfect!!

So many compliments...

This dress is so simple yet classy. I got tons of compliments all night long. I wore it to a charity masquerade gala- it was perfect. I am between a 14-16 and if the 14 was available I would have ordered it because I knew the top would be a bit looser than I wanted. Still though the fit was pretty true to size. I still think I could have sized down but was comfortable. I love the versatility of the shoulder strap. I wore it a little lower than the model.

I wore this to a JDRF Gala and it was perfect. I loved the shoulder detail and the gathering on the side was very forgiving of my lack of exercise lately. Solid black makes for a great opportunity to wear some statement jewelry. Loved it!

Comfortable, elegant

This was my back up dress, which I did not end up wearing. My primary dress fit better, and the length worked better. I would've worn the 2L and I'm 5'7", 129, 34C and wear 3" heels. This was flattering in the mid section, had some stretch and felt great on. my issue was it was a little too short in the front and my shoes showed too much. Dark heels work better to eliminate a break in color for the eyes. I had planned to accessorize with champagne heels and would've had to do black. There is a little train which was a bit tricky when walking but nothing I wouldn't have figured out if I had worn it. A little longer and I may have worn it!

I loved this dress! The long was perfect for wearing heals and the material had just enough stretch to hug your curves. I wore the 10L which is my normal size but was a little big on the top but was not really noticeable. This dress is beautiful and classic!
