I wore this for a black tie wedding and received so many compliments! Perfect for a formal event.
True to size - I'm pretty short (5'3") and it was the perfect length with 2.5" heels.

Didn't get to wear.
I range from a 6 to an 8 in dresses. This dress was one of those that fit in a 6. I wasn't able to wear this dress though because some of the teeth on the zipper were bent and once the dress was fully zipped up the zipper split at those teeth. Then trying to bring the zipper down broke the little dangle chain on the zipper. Not the companies fault; just general wear and tear during their peak season. They overnighted me a different dress and that one worked out great.

I ordered this dress to wear for my engagement photos, which were taken around Christmas.
I love, love, love this dress, and got so many compliments on it. I am pear-shaped, and generally wear size 2-4 in dresses, and size 4-6 in pants. I ordered the 2 and the 4 in this dress, and the 2 fit like a glove. The cut of this dress is perfect for those with similar body types. It really accentuates all the right assets. As for the length, I ordered a long because I am 5'9", and found that it just barely brushed the floor when I was standing or walking. It was a little long for going up stairs, and I really had to hike it up to keep from tripping.

Glamorous and comfy
Everyone complemented me on this dress, from the coat check lady to quietest of me . One gentleman came to me four times to enthuse about this dress! It is old time glamorous. The dress is very forgiving, and required no Spanx. It seemed to fit a little bit on the small side, so I would order one size up. There's no stretch in the fabric. I ballroom dance, and it stayed in place the whole evening. It looked beautiful flowing backwards around the dance floor. Fabric is absolutely gorgeous. A truly glamorous ball gown!

Super comfy and beautiful gown. Received compliments all night!
The dress was gorgeous and comfortable. I loved the pockets! It was super easy to wear. It was the perfect length with a pair of 3 inch heels (just brushed the floor). The only reason I am giving 4 stars and not 5 is because the hook closure at the zipper was broken and the dress appeared to have been taken in at the shoulder (other renters have complained of the dress being big in the bust but mine was perfect since that had been done). Also, usually RTR sends a garment bag or case in which the dresses I rent can easily fit. This time my rentals arrived in a large shipping box and the return bag was very small. It took a lot of time to stuff two dresses and a pair of earrings into that bag for return. Since it was so puffy and round after stuffing, the bag would not fit into a UPS Dropbox and I had to wait until 1/2/2015 (local ups store was closed on New Year Day) to ship this from a store. Usually the return process is a lot less of a hassle because the cases fit easily into a drop box. RTR should have at the very least supplied two return bags for my order. All that said, I definitely plan to use RTR again.

A little long. I am 5'4" and wore 3" heals and it was still a little long. Otherwise fit as expected.

It was a black tie, NYE Wedding! This dress was unique and elegant! I loved it!
I was a little nervous going into it because I had rented once before and gotten a dress that was too big. I am expecting in June so I was going to be 16wks for the event. I was hoping something with a high waistline would still fit so I took the chance! So glad I did I felt beautiful and go so many compliments all night long! It was a great way to kick off the new year!

Heartbroken, really awkward cut, no give in the fabric
As soon as I saw this dress pop up in my search, I fell in love and wanted it for a formal wedding. Luckily, I ordered it with enough time in advance. I waited with excitement for it to arrive, and ran to put it on when it did, only to be crushed by the fact that it didn't come close to fitting me. I'm a pretty solid size 12 in everything (wore a RTR jumpsuit in a 12 with no issue 2 weeks ago), but this cut was so weird, I don't know what size would have worked. It is very tight around the ribs, but that fitted area didn't come down to the waist where it would have been ok. The material in the bust seemed excessive, too. And as I was trying to move it around and adjust my boobs to see if there was anything I could do to finagle it, the side zipper and the shoulder would not align. Needless to say, I am incredibly bummed. I keep staring at it, hoping my Jedi powers will make a miracle happen, but nothing yet. It might work if I had a few less ribs to get in the way? Since that's not a solution, I have to send it back. Being on the west coast is also hard because it was too late to overnight a new one by the time I received this one. So now I ordered another dress (in a 14), that will arrive day of my event. If that doesn't fit, I'll probably cry, and stay away from renting all together because this is too stressful to deal with right before a big event.

Rented this for the North American Auto Show Charity Preview. It was such a unique dress.
It fit very snug through rib cage and I also have a small chest - A cup but because I'm still nursing it's more a B cup and there would have been plenty of room for larger cup size while still looking fitted on mine. I'm 5'4 and wore 3-4 inch heels and it was touching ground ever so slightly- so it was pretty long and that was the regular size. Dress has pockets- bonus!!! It was a true ball gown and just felt amazing! Layers underneath keep it full so there is quite a lot of skirt. Overall gorgeous dress! Side zipper was a bit tough to get up so had to run it back and forth a few times.

The friends
Got more compliments on this dress than any I've ever worn. It is beautiful! Could have worn the 8 (my usual size) but the zipper was so tough to zip even on the hangar, I went with the 10. I think it runs pretty true to size, but zipper is an issue getting through the seam at the waist.

Great dress, amazing evening!
Beautiful dress! It met everyone of my expectations and more! If you are like me and your ribs are a little larger than the average person then you may need to go a size up. Other than that, I can't really complain about the sizing on this dress. The dress was gorgeous, and flattering! I highly recommend this dress for a formal event!

Loved loved loved this dress. Not too full and really shows off your waist, arms and shoulders. I am usually a 6 (to accommodate hips!) but I wore a 4. I am still getting compliments a week later!

The people, the food, the entertainment and of course the DRESS made this night one to remember!
This dress is stunning. I had women and men coming up to me all night to tell me how elegant and beautiful my dress was. I loved the way it fit. It was so comfortable. It was a little tight. If the 6 would have been available I probably would have worn that instead but the 4 was still comfortable. It came up high enough so no cleavage was showing. It was tight enough that I didn't have to worry about it falling down. The length was perfect with a little heel. My favorite part of the dress....The pockets!!!! Perfect for carrying my phone around with me.

This was for a fairytale costume ball- hubs and I went as Little Red and the Huntsman (hence the axe). Great, flattering dress. I was afraid I was going to rip the tulle all night though, so I took a star off.

There is nothing bad about this dress! It highlights all of the positives, and falls beautifully! I also loved the pockets, because they allowed me to have easy access to my phone for pictures, while not having to carry around my bag all night. I would recommend this dress to anyone going to a black tie affair!

Wish this had worked!
I desperately wanted this dress to work for a black tie event close to Valentine's Day. Unfortunately, the 2 was too big in both the bust and waist, and the 0 was unavailable. The fabric is sublime, and it is a truly unforgettable gown - richly colored, lovely cut, and pockets. I will definitely rent it again - this time in a 0.

Bell of the ball
I was so excited about this dress for this red carpet black tie event. It made the best impression and I loved wearing it. The material was perfect and didn't wrinkle. It was a great length and the under skirt was just poofy enough but not crazy. I would recommend this dress if you want to get lots of compliments and share all about rent the runway.

This dress covered my new baby bump. My husband and I are expecting twins in the fall!
My girlfriends and I were representing RTR in full fashion! We attended the American Heart Association's Annual Heart Ball. I loved this dress. It was comfortable and the fabric was beautiful. I received compliments all night. I'm 5'10" and wore the long. I was even able to get away with wearing flats and no one knew. With flats it barely brushed the ground. Perfect dress for the event.

I LOVED my rental!! So much I dreaded going to drop the gown off at UPS!
Fit was perfection! I did not need to wear a bra and had no issues through out the entire evening. The long was perfect for my height I think had I went with the regular it would have looked odd.

LOVE IT!
After having a stressful RTR experience last year, I decided to give it another chance. I finally figured out to have the dress delivered to me two days before my event in case the two sizes I requested did not fit. I also sized up this time around. And it's a good thing I did! I rented this for a black-tie event at the art museum where I work. I am 5'5", 127 lbs, 34A. I ordered in 4R and 6R. I could not get the 4R to zip up. All of these designer dresses are so tight in the rib cage! But the 6R fit just right, thankfully! It was slightly loose in the chest area, but I'm not very busty so that is usually what I expect. I wore a black strapless bra and that worked just fine. I also wore my usual comfy 3 inch heels and they worked perfectly with the length of this gown. OK, now that the logistics are out of the way, let me tell you how much I LOVED this dress... and so did everyone else at the party! I got tons of rave comments from guests. It's very dramatic, stunning, and easy to wear. The best part for me are the pockets. Because this is a work event for me I have to have a dress with pockets for my work badge, keys, phone, business cards, and lip gloss. I can't be messing around with a handbag. The pockets worked like a charm. And because this is a ball gown you can't tell I had all of these things in my pockets. Absolutely loved it!

I wore this on opening night to the Alice in Wonderland ballet. The colors matched wonderfully!
For reference, I'm 5'2, 112 lbs. I usually wear size 0-2 pants and size x-small - small tops. The fit was true to size, and it wrapped around my chest and waist perfectly. My only small complaint was that the dress was slightly long, even after wearing high heels. But it couldn't be helped that I'm short! I received many compliments wearing this dress!

STUNNING!!!
After reading the reviews, I decided to get this dress for a fancy night out on the town! I was worried this dress was going to be too "old" for me but this dress did not disappoint!! I felt elegant, sophisticated and down right sexy! I usually wear a size 2 but wore the 4R as it fit better on top (I'm a 32D). I suggest sizing up for backup. The color is rich and the fabric is perfect!! And those pockets!!! Love! From the moment we walked out, I got compliments all night, even from our UBER drivers! Wore 3.5" inch heels and it just barely skimmed the floor! Went out dancing and it held up perfectly. If you're worried it is too "poofy" it is not! It flares out just perfectly! Only downsize was that, upon inspection, the top part of the dress (shoulder area) was coming apart. Almost to the point of breaking but I fixed it with hem tape! It stayed put. Other than that, I would DEFINITELY rent this again!!

Regal, with pockets!
I would have normally worn the 8 but because of zipper problems I had to wear the 10, which was a little long in the torso. But because of the fit of this dress it didn't look bad or cause too many problems. I got so many compliments on this dress! I wore about 4 in heels and it lifted off the floor just a little. I wore a strapless bra with it and the bust was just a tad big, definitely would have been perfect if the 8 could have been worn. Also, I was obsessed with the pockets!

Perfect combination of funk and class
Okay, girls. I'm going to start with the only 3 words you need to hear: pockets, pockets, POCKETS! I wore this dress volunteering at a black tie gala and easily held my phone, wallet, 2 tubes of lip gloss, keys and mints in the pockets all night, even through dancing at the after party! SO easy. This dress is beautiful, comfortable and graceful, and I have only great things to say about it. I ran around volunteering all evening and never once had to worry about adjusting or modifying my outfit. I am 5'9" and the 4R sat about a cm off the floor in flats. This was perfect since I was standing all night, but if you are >5'8" and plan on wearing any sort of heel, I'd definitely go for the long cut. Definitely one of my favourite RTR picks!

Amazing dress!
This dress was a great pick! I wore it to my boyfriend's Military Ball and it was definitely one of the prettiest dresses there. I'm 6'0 (I wore flats) but it fit me perfectly and though the material is light, it has enough flare for it to feel like a proper ball gown. Best part? It has pockets!!! So you can still look classy while carrying all of the essentials. The only problem I had was with the zipper, but once I zipped it from the inside, it stayed put! 10/10 would recommend!

Fit was great, didn't even need to try on my back up. Bust was slightly bigger (I'm a 36B) even with bra on but nothing a little fashion tape wouldn't fix. I'm 5'4 and wore 3 inch heels and the regular length was perfect! Felt gorgeous and like a princess!

This dress will send you compliments all night long!
My husband and I are just not picture people at all, so I only got a selfie shot with him... Nothing full length. But let me tell you... The compliments you will receive make you feel like a million dollars! As far as the fit goes... I have a broad torso and an athletic build, so I was glad I got the next size up. 4R didn't fit but the 6R was just right. I will also say that this is not a dress you want to wear for an event where the venue or outside is warmer/hot because I was very uncomfortable. We were in a hotel where they held cocktail hour in what felt like a greenhouse area with tons of windows and the sun beating in. Then they moved approximately 2500 Army soldiers and their dates into a ballroom that grew in temperature every minute of the night. With this dress, there are 2 layers under the skirt part to give it some volume, which made for a very toasty evening. That was my only complaint. Other than that, loved that it had pockets so I didn't have to worry about a purse, the one shoulder design made maintenance throughout the night practically non-existent (so I didn't have to hike up my top every 5 seconds), the return shipping was super easy and I cannot wait to rent another dress!!!

The perfect dress for a black tie wedding !
I ordered a 2L initially, but it was a little big in the top and I wore the backup size 0L instead. You'll definitely need someone to zip you into the dress (the zipper is hard to get up over the sash), buy I was so comfortable all night and it was such a fun dress to dance in! Shoeless, it was a little long and got stepped on a few times, but wear some comfy heels to prevent that!

Gorgeous Dress = lots of compliments!
I wore this to my friend's black tie wedding, and got so many compliments in person & on social media. This dress runs true to size, but is pretty tight at the rib cage. It is also not very long - at 5'7", it barely touched the floor & I had to wear flats. I thought it was very flattering - covering up my problem stomach area. Loved the pockets! The zipper was ridiculously tough to get up - there was zero chance I could do it myself, and I actually had to WD-40 the zipper with a cotton ball in order to get it closed. The fabric is a little warm, I think it may be too hot for a late spring/summer wedding. I think the crinoline underneath gave it just enough "pouf" to make a statement, without being obnoxious. I loved this dress & didn't want to take it off, or return it! :)

Stunning gown! Felt like a brown Barbie
Ordered the 2R which didn't fit due to my large chest, the 4 fit perfectly. Both sizes have EXTREMELY tricky zippers so I needed a second person to help me zip it up. I'm pretty short (5'1.5") but didn't think the petite size would be long enough so went with the regular. I wore flats because I hate heels so it made the dress very long and I tripped over it a little bit. But wearing heels would make it a good floor length and I did fine just lifting it as I walked. Overall it was beautiful! Would rent again if I hadn't shared pics of me in it everywhere already! : j

Perfect dress for a formal event! I felt like a princess!
The bust is more snug than it looks, but I was still able to zip it up. If I had gotten an 8, it would have probably been too big. It was just a tad too long on me with 3.5 inch heels on. I had to hold it up so people wouldn't step on it.
