1930s glamour
I had wanted to rent this dress for some time, and was thrilled to get to do so! The beadwork and straps are divine! The only caveat is that the bodice runs a bit tight and appears much lower-cut on a curvy figure than it does on this model, so you may want to drape with a shawl. Definitely size up one. Otherwise, just as glamorous and stunning as I had hoped for!

Absolutely stunning and glamourous for a Mother of the Groom!
The beading was beautiful and not too gaudy. The fit was perfect up top and it flowed beautifully across the hips.It runs long so I went with the regualr length. If you are looking for a great color comparison, this matched the Davids Bridal Mercury color perfectly. The fabric overlay moved perfectly on the dance floor. The Chamak By Priya Kakkar braclet set was a special touch and look great.

Wow! She looks stunning! Roughly my size and age, but I have been feeling too fat for any of these. She looks fab! I need a dress to renew our vows

definitely bump friendly
I wore the dress to a black-tie event. I am normally a size 2/4, but was 6 months pregnant, so I wore a size 8R. The dress was beautiful. It was a little large around the bust for me (I'm normally 32A, but was a little bigger while pregnant), but the dress worked really well with my pregnant figure.

It was a pleasure shopping on line and saving all the time going to stores to find the perfect dress
This is a BEAUTIFUL dress. It would look great on everyone because it is loose fitting yet flattering through the body. The bead work is rich, heavy and gorgeous. The dresses are like new too. It fit well and was true to size. I was very comfortable and didn't have to constantly pull or correct it. The chiffon fabric makes you feel so pretty and feminine. The color is a beautiful light taupe/grey that is elegant and unique. I attended a formal ball with an all white theme...I did not want a white dress so this was light enough to pass and ended up making a very nice statement. I felt like the Bell of the Ball. Thanks so much!

Stunning gown, definitely made a statement!
So after my original dress wasn't available, they sent me this dress as a replacement! Thank goodness they did! What an amazing dress! Not only is the front beautiful, the back is even more gorgeous! They really should put a pic up of the back of the dress on the site-- unfortunately I forgot to take a pic of myself with the beautiful back! The dress is light weight and I was able to dance the night away! I thought the length was going to be too long being that I'm only 5' 2" but with 3" heels- it was perfect!!

I am 5ft tall and it didn't work for me.
Being short, the dress was of course too long which I was prepared for with tall shoes, but it also was too long in the shoulder straps, back fit area. The color was nice and felt really comfortable, but I would not recommend it for anyone under 5'4- I didn't end up wearing it.

WOW!
This was a bonus size I was able to get due to a mistake on my original order. I only wish it fit! It was sooo stunning, slimming and downright gorgeous, but just too snug for my chest. I'd definitely try it again someday! I loved this one!!!

Absolutely Stunning!
I felt amazing in this dress! It is very greecian looking and a lovely gray color. The straps & broach detailing is gorgous. The back is especially beautiful. I am 5 foot 11 and the 8 Long just brushed the floor, so I wore silver decorated thong flats with the limited time I had to prepare but no one noticed my shoes with this dress on. The back is not form fitting in the body, but the gathering in front was very flattering. My favorite rental thus far (of course the most expensive as well). Thank you RTR! A special thank you to Emily for her help in selecting this dress. Rent the Runway was very helpful when the original dress I selected was unable to be rented anymore. Although they only found out the day before my dresses were supposed to arrive, they contacted me both by phone and email to find a replacement and I still received it the following day! Thank you for your help and hard work. I felt beautiful!

This dress was SOOO beautiful! Detailed, elegant, and a great chiffon material.
This dress was absolutely gorgeous, with so many fine details and beading you had to feel beautiful wearing it. The beading along the straps all the way to the clasp and down the back was so pretty. I ordered it for the Rent The Runway Our Runway launch event, and even there no one else had it. I vary between an 8 and a 10 and the 8 wasn't available; the 10 fit fine but I could have gone down a size. The straps were a little long in the back, and I had extra mega cleavage (I wear a 36D, so this is a usual issue for me), but neither detracted from the look. Do wear high heels though if you're 5'6" or under. Stunning dress!

LOVE! If you want to have jaws drop and be complimented on all night then this is the dress!!
I wore this dress for my sorority formal. I originally ordered a different dress but 2 days before the event I received an email saying they were not able to get the size I needed. They sent me this dress as a second option. I will say the delivery was slow and the dress did arrived a day later than i asked and 20 minutes before I had to leave for formal (but don't worry this was all because of the hurricane). I wear a size 6 in dresses so this just fit PERFECTLY! I am 5' 10'' so I was a little bit worried about the length but again it was just the right length. I will say that I could not wear heels so if you are 5'9'' or taller plan on wearing flats. I received so many compliments and was told I looked gorgeous all night! My favorite part of the dress= the back! I am a sucker for dresses with cool backs and the detailing on the back of the dress was absolutely stunning.. I will definitely be renting again! :)

Decided to rent the day before I needed the dress, and it was a stunning success.
The dress was great, very fitted through bodice so great if hips are size larger than bust as is true for me. I wore the 8, it was a perfect fit. I tried on the size 10 to compare - while being slightly larger overall, there was a significant difference in the straps, they were much longer. And the bracelets suggested really completed the look.

Such an elegant gown!
This gown is stunning in person! I love the beading detail on the straps and the detail at my waist was incredibly flattering. This dress does run about one size small. I wore the size 4; however, it was extremely tight I definitely should have been wearing the size 6. Because of this, I definitely recommend sizing up at least one size. If you are large chested, I would size up once for your primary dress and 2 sizes for the backup. Overall, this dress is beautiful and perfect for any formal affair.
