Perfect for elegance
The dress was extremely elegant. I went to a gala for my dad's fraternity and was complemented multiple times on the gown. Now because I'm short, I had to wear extremely tall heels unfortunately. It does not come for fun size people. Nonetheless I felt very poised just wearing the dress. Great fit and breathable. No tightness after the 4 course meal.

Elegant gown for a black tie wedding
It was a last minute change of plans so I ended up with a dress that was a little too long, but I loved it. It's higher in the front than the back so I still couldn't trip on it! I picked the dress out at the Topanga RTR store after my other options didn't fit. It is beautiful when you see it in person, even better than the pictures. I got tons of compliments so RTR got free advertising all night.

The dress was beautiful. Runs large on the top , the smaller size was unavailable for my event. Dress started to feel heavy by the end of the night. Overall the dress was fun to wear.

The dress fit like a glove. It accentuated my waist beautifully
The fit was great. Snug on top so I didn't need to wear a bra. I'm 5'0 tall and the petite dress was unavailable. I ordered the 18 R and it was too long. I received many compliments on the dress.

I generally wear an 18 and went with the 20 in this dress because of the bust size.

Perfect for black tie wedding
I didn't order this dress, and it didn't stick out to me online, but once I tried it on, I loved the dress! It made me feel pretty and I really love the material, fit and movement of the dress. It actually came as my back-up size for a different dress, but I ended up liking this dress better than the one I had ordered.

Amazing Dress!
I wore this dress for a gala fundraiser benefiting a local art gallery. It was perfect! I normally wear a 14 but i went with the 16 because i have full bust. 38DDD. The 16 was beautiful and fit just perfect. I did wear shape wear but the fabric is very forgiving and this dress could be worn without it. Thank you RTR!!

LOVE
I wore this for a night time, winter, very formal, black tie optional wedding in NYC. I loved this dress! It was very comfortable. The material and length was perfect for the occasion and time of year. I ordered the long as I am already almost 5'6" and adding 4 inch heels definitely puts me on the tall side. It ended up being the perfect length. The above the ankle length in front make walking stairs, and dancing very easy. I have very wide long hips so the shape of the dress was perfect and forgiving all in the right places. Also perfect for concealing lower tummy if that is a problem in form fitting dresses. I got many compliments. Very classy an conservative look. Great paired with detailed/strappy shoes.

simple yet elegant
I wore the 1L because the 2 was a bit large for me. It didn't make a difference that it was long because it is short in the front. The colors were not as defined as they are in the sample picture. The entire dress looks more like one color. It was simple yet elegant. I loved the pockets. It was a little tight around the chest area. Loved the shape of a natural waist.

A well fitting Dress
The dress it's phenomenal. The lane to me seemed a little off because I am 58 and it seemed a little short. However the pockets are a huge bonus and the dress fit very well

Too much material for larger women
This was a backup dress I didn't end up wearing. The material was luxurious and design beautiful though. I am very pear shaped so the top was loose and made the dress look dumpy on my frame. Just not the right cut for me.

I felt beautiful!
This was not the original dress I picked out, however the size I needed was not available as the previous renter didn't return the dress (frustrating). The dresses that were sent to me were too big. I called a stylist Friday morning and picked out this dress. It was sent out Overnight to the destination were the wedding was taking place. AMAZING CUSTOMER SERVICE I was nervous about this dress, worried it was going to be too small.... IT FIT PERFECT! It looked amazing and classy. The colors were beautiful, the fabric was luxurious. I received many compliments, even by complete strangers! It was a perfect dress for a formal winter wedding. I WILL DEFINITELY USE RENT THE RUNWAY AGAIN!

Very classy dress.
I loved the fit and the quality of the fabric is excellent. I am usually a 0P or 2P, they didn't have a 0P, and the 2P was too loose, so I went with the 0R which still fit fine, but my ankles didn't show as much as they do on the model. My only complaint is the structure of the chest area which made my boobs look a little weird. Nothing anyone could really notice, I'm just very picky.

Wore it to Upper East Side NYC white tie formal.
Fit like a dream. I am a bit small up top so perhaps it could have been tighter there, but on a normal woman it would be perfect. The weight of the fabric is luscious--excellent body and sheen. Really luxurious. Thickness feels really nice for winter events! The skirt was perfect, very flattering over the butt in back but best part is the waist is small, but the fabric is cut so it flows below and you can actually EAT DINNER and no bulges show. Basically super comfortable classy luxury.

I am 5'4" and 125lbs. The 4R fit perfectly with my 34B bust. I wore slight heels and it wasn't too long like I feared it might be. The pockets were surprisingly indiscrete! Perfect for a Cell phone. The material traveled well and felt very luxurious.

Perfect dress for a black tie event!
Stylish, ageless and comfortable! Fits true to size, fitted bodice and A line skirt made this chic and comfortable. The high low hem hem gave it a flirty flare. I didn't want the train effect, so I wore the regular length, dress just brushed the heel of my shoes in the back. Cell phone and lipstick fit in pockets. Color was regal and just enough sheen to dazzle! Tons of compliments all night. Another RTR win!

I received nothing but compliments on this dress it wasn't the one I really wanted but now am glad.
I would go a size down if you are not well endowed on top as it made me look totally flat. It is a bit heavy for a summer event but it was a comfortable wear. I wore it my son's wedding in Florida in October. At the end of the day it was getting a bit heavy. I would order it again but go down a size and get the petite as it was a bit long for me 5'3".

Elegant and unique style
This dress was a replacement dress because the others I ordered were damaged or bad fits. I would not have chosen this dress otherwise, but it worked out fine. It's a dark color and doesn't photograph beautifully, but at least it's not just a plain black dress. The high-low hem is really interesting and I had a lot of compliments all night. It hangs beautifully because there is heavy weight in the bottom.

Beautiful dress, runs a little tight in the bodice, pay attention to length!
This was a substitute for a dress I had ordered that was unavailable. It is a beautiful dress, but due to the length I was unable to wear it. It does run a little tighter in the bodice, so if you are well-endowed I would order a size up. Also, pay attention to the length. If you are above 5'7", definitely order the long! I would have loved to wear this. Would definitely rent again if the occasion arises.

Gorgeous dress
I wore this dress to a fundraiser gala and received many compliments. It was very comfortable to wear as well. I am 5'4" and 4R was a perfect length with a medium sized heel. The top was a slightly big but I am pear shaped/small chested. I'm glad I rented this dress!

I felt very comfortable in this dress.
I wore this dress to my husband's Navy ball. The dress was very comfortable and modest. It was a high-low which worked out great since I'm only 5'2". I wore sandal heels that were only like 2.5". It also has pockets which made it easy to hold my cell phone and lipstick.

Worn to a gala
This gown was an absolute knockout at my job's annual gala. I find the combination of blue/navy and black incredibly chic, and this dress embodies that sophistication completely. It accentuates the shape in a really classy way, and the fabric is beautiful and adapts well to different temperatures. I wore it on an especially warm late spring night and was afraid I would be too hot, but the dress was surprisingly breathable. Size up if you have a broad back and shoulders (unfortunately this is the case with most evening gowns). I received compliments all night.

I loved this dress. It is elegant, comfortable and has pockets!
I have a large bust and typically can wear a size 6-8. I wore a size 10 in the dress and it looked fine. I could have sized down maybe, but I was comfortable in the 10. I wear a 32DD so my bust drives most dress styles. The details on the dress helped slim down my problem areas and it made me look taller with the hemline. The fabric is beautiful. It was perfect for the formal wedding I attended.

Beautiful dress, great fit
I received a ton of compliments on this dress. The style was perfect for an evening wedding. Fitted at the top and room to show my dance moves on the bottom. I am a 6 top and 8 bottom so prefer a more A-line dress if I can't try on. I'm not busty and the top fit me well, that may be a problem for anyone who is more well endowed up top. Several people asked if I had it made because it fit so well. Loved it, will go with this designer again.

Fantastic (maid-of-honor) dress. Gorgeous fabric and cut, terrific fit, and pockets made it perfect.
Great fit (including length). Fabric was lovely. Pockets super useful. Zipper a little tricky.
