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.

Fun, formal, and comfy

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

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!

This dress was absolutely fabulous! It fit perfectly and I received compliments all night long!

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.

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!

Fit like a glove! I usually wear heels too all family weddings so the dress was a perfect size and length with my shoes! Absolutely loved that there were pockets making my phone easily accessible for photos! So happy with my first experience with RTR , i am looking forward to my next order!

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!

The dress has just the right amount of volume and is super comfy. Pockets!!

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!

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.

I was showered with compliments on my Met Gala-worthy gown!!

My first experience with RTR was unimaginably fantastic! I'm not going to lie, I was very nervous to rent a dress that I had never tried on for my junior prom. Being 5'1", it's not every day that a dress fits you perfectly. However, getting a backup dress and a third for a fraction of the price made me feel a lot better and kept most of my prom anxiety at bay. I rented for 4 days, and I really do think scheduling my delivery for two days before my event was the right choice. It gave me enough time to find a pair of shoes tall enough for me to not trip over the dress! If you're under 5'2" like me, and don't necessarily wear heels often (or enjoy it), its a little bit of a struggle to balance heel height and dress hem. I wore 3 1/2 inch heels since I was most confident in a shorter height. This meant I had to hold the hem of my dress when I walked, but at least I wasn't tripping over myself in stilettos the entire night! I didn't mind the length since the waist hit me absolutely perfectly. This dress was an absolute dream- I was able to wear short heels and no Spanx! Even though it was a little large in the bust, the structure of the top with the asymmetry made it look as if it was supposed to be worn that way. The compliments I received were just as wonderful- as one girl put it, I "looked like I was going to the Met Gala instead of a high school dance". This gown just oozes classic charm and Audrey Hepburn-esque elegance. Hands down the prettiest thing I've ever worn, thank you Rent The Runway for making me the belle of the ball!!

Hands down the best, most beautiful and flattering dress I have ever worn.

Had the 0R been available, I would have ordered it. However, with a little clever pinning in the waist, it was perfect! I received so many compliments on the dress and felt absolutely beautiful all night long. Comfortable and light, I didn't get too warm regardless of the 80 degree weather! If you want to feel confident, sexy, and beautiful, get this dress! The only reason I gave this dress a 4/5 stars was due to the 0R dress not being available and having to pay the Saturday shipping rate even though it came in on a Friday.

Very beautiful dress! And the pockets!!

The zipper was a pain! It took maybe 15 minutes of me on my side and my husband putting his knee in my side to force that zipper up. But once zipped up, the dress was so beautiful on. I'll definitely be renting again!!!

The dress made me feel like a million dollars.

The dress runs small in the chest, and while I normally wear a 6 I had to wear the 8. The dress looks great and comes with plenty of compliments. My only complaint is the zipper tends to get caught around the waistline. It took me a few tries to get the zipper up the first time I put it on. Overall a amazing dress!

I loved this dress more than my wedding dress!

The POCKETS! I wore this dress to a work gala - and needed a phone . I loved the way it fit (I am small busted) and swished when I walked. Plus, after working in heels on a cement floor for hours, nobody knew when I switched to flip flops!

I was complimented every 5 minutes on how incredibly beautiful I looked in the dress.

Love, love, LOVE this dress. I wore it to a formal Christmas party and got tons of compliments. At first I thought it would be too short considering that I'm quite tall, but I was wrong. The 12L was the perfect length and I was even able to wear heels with the dress. The dress is very feminine, perfect for any formal occasion.

This dress was comfortable and cute! I received several compliments throughout the night.

Perfect for a formal affair. The dress had poof out a little, but not too princess-like. It had a regal feel to it with the dark red rose and black. I wore 4 inches heels with it and the dress fell down perfectly (I'm 5"4').

Nothing in particular.

I wore this dress as the mistress of ceremonies of a banquet fundraiser. I received HELLA compliments. It was a smash hit with the ladies and my date. It also had pockets, which was amazing. 2 problems though. 1) when I tried it on before my event, it took me 30 minutes to get the zipper up. THIRTY. DAMN. MINUTES. Right before the waist band it just kept getting stuck. No matter what I did I just couldn't get it to zip, until I laid on my bed. The night of, it took my date about 3 attempts to zip it up. Talk about a scare. 2) It was a bit big at the bust. It had a little gapping on the side without the strap. Maybe I should've done a 4. And just a side note, it wasn't as fluffy as I wanted it. It had a crinoline slip, but I wanted it to flare out a bit more. But again, overall it was a great dress.

This dress was SO beautiful but unfortunately the area around the rib cage was so tight I couldn't zip it up. I think if I had gone up a size the rib cage area would have been great but the bust too large.

Stunning, flattering and comfortable!

Perfect for a black-tie optional gala. I loved the bold colors in this dress, the style, and the fit! I received so many compliments from total strangers all night. The pattern in the dress did not overpower either, which I was worried about. I am 5'9" and wore 4" heels and the length was perfect. I had to be careful on stairs but nothing unexpected from a floor length gown. The bonus was the pockets! My phone and lipstick were not visible at all and I did not have to keep up with a purse while dancing.

Obsessed. Didn't want to give it back!

I hosted a concert and performed a vocal solo myself and this dress was PERFECT! Comfortable, has pockets. Like the other reviews noted, the zipper was a little tricky so don't depend on it for a quick costume change. It also runs a little small. I heeded others' advice and ordered a size up from my usual and I was glad I did. The 6 fit great. I'm 5'8" and wore 5" heels and the dress just barely brushed the floor. Perfect in every way!

This dress was super comfortable and beautiful. It has fun pockets too! It was very long. I wore a 3.5" heel (I'm 5'4") and had to lift the dress when I walked.
