Classic dress, compared to Audrey Hepburn!

The dress was very slimming and made me look long and lean! I loved the gold lace detail. The corset did not bother me at all, however you can't move your arms too much because of the cap sleeves. The dress does not have any stretch to it. Overall, I felt classy and sophisticated.

The customer service was great

I love the way this dress fits. I felt like I looked very sophisticated in this dress. It fits pretty true to size. It's super comfortable and the built in bra is great. My only negative comment is that it's a little difficult to walk in. All in all it's a super dress!

I received so many compliments on this gown - I loved everything about it!

The dress was very comfortable and was much easier to move in then I expected! Didn't have to wear a bra, there was a built in - the only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is because it was a little shorter in the front than the back and didn't touch the ground completely.. If you're 5'6" or taller, get the long!

Beautiful quality!

I'm usually a 6 and it fit well overall except that the dress comes with a corset and the 6 would not close in the back. The 8 was a little less form fitting but comfortable. I wore 5 inch heels and it was perfect. Lovely for a black tie wedding.

People at the ball kept stopping me to tell me how beautiful the gown was. I felt special in it.

I have s slender body type and typically I am a size 0 or 2. The zero fit, but was sung. The 2R was perfect. The best part was the built-in bustier so you didn't have to worry about a special bra. I'm 5'4" and wore 3 inch heels and it was probably about a half inch longer than I would like, but it gave a train effect that was nice. My toes just cleared it in the front.

Beautiful!

I wore this dress for a formal wedding in San Francisco. It was a hit! The dress fit great, it was a little tight in the bust (36DD) so I went to my backup size 14, so could feel a little more comfortable. The length was surprisingly short. I am only 5'3, and wore only 2 inch heels, my 4 inch heels that I thought I'd wear showed way too much of my feet. Everything stayed in place so very happy with my rental!

I got so many compliments. This dress was so flattering and easy to wear!

The fit of this dress is so flattering. The built in bra was perfect and I was able to wear regular underwear. I wore plain black heels and black fingernails and black jewelry with gold accents. Compliments all night! The length could be tricky for someone taller than 5'3". I wore a low heel and the regular length was just perfect in the front with a small train (lovely). Any taller or higher heel and it would have been too short in the front.

Was glad I ordered the long as it fit perfect. A little snug in the bust and much sexier than pictured.

So pretty but too small/short

The dress was very pretty but unfortunately even the larger size was too small to accommodate my larger chest. In addition the dress was a little too short on me (I'm 5'6") and with keels it hit too high on my foot.

Classy and perfect for Black Tie gala!

This dress fit like a glove! I'm typically a size 8 in regular off the rack dresses, so I would say this runs slightly small. I'm large busted and didn't require a bra because of the great built in hooks. I had several women at the event come up to me and complement me on the dress saying how classy and different it was. The gold thread makes it stand out among a sea of boring black gowns. So glad I chose this dress instead of the back-up style because two other women showed up wearing the other gown! Would highly recommend this dress!

Overall great

Overall great. I'm 5'7" and probably could have used a Long. This was my 2nd choice after the other Theia dress "A Night to Remember" was damaged. Good for large chest and narrow hips - nice built in bra.

Fabulous dress for a fabulous southern wedding!

I usually wear a 10. I even went to Saks 5th Ave to try on this designer to make sure about fit/sizing. The 10L fit like a glove, however the built in bustier was cutting into my waist. A long night with dancing would've been painful. I wore the 12L. It fit wonderfully. Only a tad looser, bustier was comfortable & I could dance without problem. It is not a to the floor long dress. I still wore 4 inch platform heels. I liked the look as it also showed off the shoes that matched to perfection (got lucky on that one!). I will definitely rent a Theia gown again. I was complimented all night for the dress.

Definitely the most user-friendly app I've ever used. The whole process was so easy! WILLL USE AGAIN

I wore this dress to prom with a great gatsby theme, and I must say I felt amazing the whole night! The dress has a built in bra which made it so comfortable! End everybody kept asking me if it was itchy because it looked like it and it wasn't at all! Only problem I had was finding shoes to go but that's because I have a limited shoe closet! The fabric wasn't stretchy hardly at all, which I think someone else mentioned on here, but it wasn't a problem at all when siting or moving. I have nothing bad to say, rent the runway made 2015 prom amazing!!

I felt glamorous..... My daughter also was wearing a dress from RTR and she was beautiful!

I ordered a size 8 and 10 pretty much knowing the 10 would fit with my current weight. And it did, perfectly! I had a concern that the built in bra might not have enough support, but the support was there and o felt comfortable through out the night including on the dance floor.... I received many compliments and shared Rent the Runway with many women! I will definitely use your services again... Thank you!

I felt absolutely gorgeous in this dress! RTR's selection of dresses can't be beat.

The fit was snug, but absolutely perfect overall. The length was perfect for me, as well. I didn't wear heals and it sat right on top of the floor. The built in bustier was exactly what I needed in a dress! The open back gives it a sexy edge, while the black and gold give it an elegant look. Overall, I definitely recommend this dress. I really don't want to send it back, but I know I must. I can't wait to rent from RTR again!

I absolutely adored this dress! It was stretchy so super comfortable and absolutely stunning

I ordered this dress in a 2 with my backup size 0. I ended up wearing the backup size as I felt the 2 was a bit big on my waist and also, too long even with high heels. The dress didn't come in a "short" version but it was no problem even for me (I'm 5 feet tall) I'm also glad the 0 fit because it looked less "worn" than the 2, which had a few small tears in the lace. I got a million compliments at the ball and still to this day from people who saw the picture online on social media. I felt like a million bucks and highly recommend this dress..

Perfect black tie affair dress!

I have a wide rib cage and shoulders, with narrow hips and though this dress fit perfectly, I am usually in a size 6 and had to wear a size 8. I felt that the dress was a little short, even though I ended up wearing a shorter heel using a larger size dress. Word for the wise, get the second size in a larger size than you'd wear. Built in bra/corset-ish thing was an awesome feature! Elegant, comfortable, and made me feel like a million bucks!! Would recommend to anyone :) very flattering to the figure.

Fit was SMALL... I wear a 12 normally but the 14L was still a bit too snug in the hips for my liking. Beautiful dress loved the built in bra.

Sexy Elegance...

The dress is amazing, elegant & sexy. It fits true to size, I chose the 0L, it was perfect! This was my runner up dress, I didn't end up wearing it but it was a difficult decision to make. The hips are very snug, so if you have them keep in mind there is NO give in that area. Loved the material, well constructed gown with a built-in corset so need for bra or pasties. There's a trail in the back which adds to the allure of elegance. 3-4 heels with the 0L with great. Overall, I would definitely recommend it & would rent again! RTR is the best! Really helps make the night feel like a fairytale.

I loved this dress and got compliments all night!! I wore it to a black tie wedding.

I felt like the dress runs big! I've never been smaller than a size 4 in my life, but I think the size 2 would have fit a little bit better. I would have liked if it was a little more form fitting. I wore a bra thing to help fill out the bust area since it was a little loose. I can't complain though! I think I'm the only one ego noticed this and I still felt great!

Flattering and a show stopper

My only complaint is he dress is a bit short and didn't touch my shoes so just make sure either you're in flats or your heels are worth looking at.

Best dressed outside of the bride!

Based on other reviews, I ordered my normal size and a larger one since many people said the dress ran small. I am glad that I did! The larger size actually fit me like a glove, but would not have for if I was a slight bit bigger. There is little give to the dress. Though unordered the tall size, it was still slightly too short, just past ankles, even in flats. Tall girls- do NOT wear heels. The bustier type too was wonderful, as I did not have to wear a bra, and the fit was gorgeous. A sleek and absurdly flattering silhouette even for someone with a bit of a pear shape. It smoothed out most lines, but I would still recommend spanx if you have any sort of tummy. I got compliments all night, including the bride herself who immediately upon exit from the ceremony, stopped me to gush over the dress! I felt very elegant, and it exuded an old school glamour that I loved! I was worried pairing with gold jewelry would be too much, but a very thin gold bracelet and some gold leaf-shaped earrings went over extremely well. I wouldn't go with anything too clunky, but don't be afraid of more gold!

Perfect dress! Great fit with great built in bra.

I usually can't get away with not wearing a bra but this dress was very supportive in that area. The dress was the perfect length and I'm 5' 4" so I'd say overall it runs a little short.

Dress looked beautiful on!

I'm almost always a size 10, but this dress has a corset and my bust was too big for the 10R, so I went with the 12R and was much more comfortable. I'm also 5'6" and the 10R would have been too short with heels. The 12 was a little longer and looked better. I would suggest that if you are top heavy go with a size bigger, just in case. Other than that, the dress was easy to wear and very beautiful !

Never been so complimented in my life. At least 20 people said wow! Stunning dress!

It is a little harder to dance in given there is a train but I still danced the night away. The fit was great. The photo doesn't do the dress justice. I told a few of my closest friends it was RTR and they were like omg - you must buy this. It was made for you.

Totally flattering on my hourglass shape!

This dress was absolutely stunning. The detail & the two colors really made the dress pop. The fit was snugged so it for my hourglass shape like a glove! The back of the dress has an opening which was perfect for my short hair cut. I wore the dress with a pair of black pumps. The whole wedding I received compliments on how pretty the dress was. It was comfortable to dance in but caught the back of my heel a lot because the train is a little length for my 5'2 height. Great dress!! My favorite rental thus far!

I got so many compliments on this dress for a black-tie optional wedding. I wear a size 10 pants and 36d bra. The dress fit perfectly up top-was a little baggy at the hips but nothing too noticeable and I was very comfortable all night. Highly recommend!

Gorgeous dress- Regular length too short

Ordered as my backup and it fit like a glove. Seriously gorgeous! But the regular length was way too short! I'm only 5'5" and would have had to wear flats for it to be long enough. Bought "kitten" heels and it looked so dumb bc you could see my feet awkwardly. Lesson learned- order long in gowns.

This dress is gorgeous and classy! Makes a great impression!

The dress fit perfectly! I am only 5' 3" so I was concerned I would be dealing with a train and stepping on the hem regardless, but with just some ~2 1/2" heels, I had no problems at all with the length. I LOVED the cap sleeves and overall the lace-esque overlay was beautiful and in great condition. I got So many compliments throughout the night, and continue to have people complimenting based on pictures. Stunning! So happy I chose this dress and Rent the Runway!

This dress ended up being too small on me, leaving me to have to wear a dress that I already had. It was absolutely beautiful though... The lace was gorgeous and the small train in the back was perfect! Would definitely rent this again

Sooo many compliments!!

This dress fit like a glove. I ordered the 6R and 6L but ended up going with the 6L for a couple reasons. First, the 6R was a little too short for me to wear with heels. Also, it had a very strong B.O. smell and there was no way I could wear it. The 6L was just the slightest bit too long, but if I had worn some higher heels it would've been perfect. I wasn't tripping over it though. All throughout the night I received so many complements. I love this dress and would totally rent it agin for a formal occasion.

Didn't wear

This was a backup dress. I went with my first pick. The bustier fit strangely and the netting didn't lay quite right. It wasn't as flattering as the other dress. I liked the colors.
