LONG

I'm 5'5" and planned to wear heels -- knowing that Theia L's have worked perfectly for me before I ordered the 2L & 4L. Even with my 4-inch heels this dress was WAAAAAY long -- there is no way I would've been able to wear this dress unless I was 5'10".

Amazing well-made and vibrant dress.

Gorgeous dress and I couldn't have asked for a better fit. It accommodated my body type which is busty, but with narrow hips, so I often encounter the issue of the dress being droopy on my lower half but not closing around my ribs. However, this was an amazing fit! Accessorized with the Kensington Drop earrings and let the bold color speak for itself.

Beautifully made, stand out dress!

I went into the store to try on a couple of gowns for an upcoming formal event in our town. I did really like the pink one I tried on, but thought I liked another one better. I got home and saw the pictures I had took in the dressing room and totally changed my mind! My stylist was very helpful in getting the order changed up (for a fee of $10 that I found out later, which was fine) and made sure it was there 2 days before my event. The dresses arrived and I was so excited to see it still had the tags on and had never been worn!!! The dress is absolutely beautiful, the color is amazing, and it fit awesome. I'm super short and petite at 5'2" and I didn't have to hem it at all. It fit like it was custom made and I received SO many compliments. Will definitely be using RTR again in the future!

Color was absolutely beautiful. I received dozens of compliments on this dress.

I am 5'10', on the slender side, large bust, wore 2" heels. 10L was perfect. There is some stretch to this gown so if you have curves that is no problem and it fits like a glove. No bra needed, there is lining, plenty of support. The best Rent The Runway dress yet. I would buy this dress if I could. It is much, much prettier on than how it looks on the site.

nice but not for me.

this was a well made gown. it is winter weight. it was the perfect length for my height. however, it is nopt the bright color pictured, it is more of a fall shade. it also runs a bit big. i thought it would have a little stretch, but it didnt. so i could have worn a 4R happily. it wasn't right for my event, but still a nice flattering dress.

Perfect formal dress!

I wore this to my cousins wedding. It was a perfect mix of glamour and simple all in one - simple since it is just one color with no detail on it, but formal because of the mermaid form fitting style. I received so many compliments all night long and from friends who saw my pictures. Only bad thing to say which is why I scored a 4 is the liner under the dress kept getting twisted. At some points the dress lining was almost completely twisted at a 180 since the back zipper would end up on my side. As I danced the dress twisted even more and as a result it became shorter since the material was wound up. It was an easy fix, I went to the bathroom and zipped out of it and stepped back in. It wasn't a deal breaker as the dress is gorgeous, just something to keep in mind.

This dress fits perfectly and is very flattering.

I was worried with the dress being so fitted that it would show everything, but the fabric is thick enough that it doesn't show. I also loved the color, some of the pictures make it look a little darker or more purple, but it's a nice fuchsia. It was very comfortable and I will probably rent it again.

Unbelievable color, amazing dress quality. So flattering!

You can really tell this was an expensive and well-made dress by the quality of the fabric and the beautiful color. I am usually a 4 in BCBG, but after seeing the sizes on the Theia website I got the 6 as my second size--glad I did, since the 4 was just too tight for my liking in the hips. I have an athletic booty--this dress was so flattering from the back and side. The color of this dress is just hard to explain--it is the most flattering cool tone of fuchsia, bordering on purple in photos. Both sizes were very long on me at 5' 1", even with 4" heels but the slight train was beautiful. I was able to wear a regular strapless bra and had plenty of room in the bust. I got compliments all night long--I was truly sad to send this one back!

Fits like a glove!

I originally rented two other dresses for prom. The dress that I really wanted got damaged so they couldn't send it to me. I was super upset so I called them the day before prom and I asked them if I could replace my dress with another. They gave me some credit and I picked out the fuchsia pink dress and got early in the morning of prom. I absolutely love this dress! I would totally recommend if your body type is a pear or hourglass.. It complemented my body figure perfectly! I did not want to send this dress back!!

Amazing dress!

I loved wearing this dress! The color is fantastic and it fits like a glove. It accentuates all the curves and flatters the entire body. I got compliments all night. It has a bit of stretch to it so dancing and moving around were no problem. It is a high quality dress that makes the woman wearing it look and feel fabulous!

Everyone said I looked great and I felt it! Made my butt look epic and classy.

Pros: The dress was vibrant and form fitting. I looked hot. It was my first time using RTR so I made an appointment at one of the sites and the woman was very kind. I was worried about the length of the dress but with the right heels it didn't matter. Cons: When I took off my heels half way through the night the dress was definitely dragging.

A show stopper

I am kicking myself for not getting more pictures and especially a full length picture because this dress was beautiful and made me feel great. It was very comfortable and fit me like a glove. Great for a woman with curves and you don't need to wear a bra. I am 5'8 and I got the long... the regular size was perfect with flats but I wanted to wear heals so I got the L... you need a 2-3 inch heal though and due to the mermaid cut you do need to be a little careful walking at times. I would recommend this dress to anyone

Formal Gayla

I loved loved loved this dress. It still had the tags on which I thought was awesome. It was great to be in a bright color amongst a sea of black. I received many compliments. It fit very well. The only complaint I had was not due to the dress it was due to being shipped the wrong size. I was shipped a tall. At 5'3" that obviously did not work for me. I had to use temporary hem tape which I tripped on all night. But I would certainly rent this dress again in the right size.

I didn't wear this as it was my second dress selected, but I will keep it in mind for any other upcoming formal events. Great fit for my curvy figure. Love the back! Could get away with a normal bra or no bra....thicker material.

It falls well, true to size (5'5", 122 lbs- wore a 4R). It was the right length for a 3 inch heel. Very flattering if you have a curvy hourglass figure!

Showstopper! I felt like a million bucks in this dress :))))

After several conversations with RTR and an almost miss with UPS I received this dress as a replacement for a dress that came damaged. This dress is beyond gorgeous. I could easily have worn the 6L but ended up wearing the 8L so that I had more room to eat and drink haha. both sizes were long enough with three inch heels and probably could have worn 4". I did not want to return this dress. My only negative was there was a slight snag near the hip of the dress I wore but it wasn't noticeable. My first RTR experience and definitely not my last :)

Head-turner!!!

Wow. This dress made me feel and look amazing. I rented this for a formal spring wedding, and I cannot tell you how many compliments I got on the dress. The fit is fabulous, and the color is so rich and beautiful. It really is a special dress! I was comfortable all night, and felt that it accentuated all of my best features! I added a beaded belt with it to add an extra touch of sparkle. I wish I could keep this dress!!! I felt like a movie star! :)

I felt like a glamorous tulip!

I rented this for a Spring Fling gala. Awesome dress, it hugged my curves just right. (33-25-34) No bra. This gown is cut really well for the hips and hiney. Definitely booty-popping. Ideal for someone with a smaller waist and chest. So very comfortable. Amazing color, flattering neckline/shoulders/back. Perfect length train. The long was almost a smidge too lengthy, I had to wear 5-inch heels instead of my 4-inch ones.

Beautiful fit & color

I got so many compliments on this dress. It was simple and elegant. The great cut showcased my body in the best way possible and the color really made it pop. Fits true to size, maybe a little bit large. Only problem was the length. I'm 5'3" and the regular was 2 inches too long even with my highest heels.

This dress felt like it was made just for me!

This dress fit perfectly and I felt like a million bucks. I was a reader in my friend's black tie wedding, so everyone attending saw my dress. I have never received so many compliments from random people about a dress before! Women kept on coming up to me all night just to tell me that they loved my dress, asked where I got it, and complimented how I looked in it. One woman even stopped me on her way out of the reception just to tell me that I looked amazing and that this dress couldn't have fit me any more perfectly. I had tried on the 2R in the store, but quickly realized that I would need the long, otherwise I would have to wear flats. I ordered the 2L, and the length was perfect with 4 inch heels. The only time the length was an issue was when I was out on the dance floor, so I held it up in one hand as an easy fix. It accentuated my curves in the right places, but was still comfortable to wear dancing the night away. I didn't want to take it off at the end of the night.

Beautiful dress but way too long!!

This is a stunning dress. The 2 fit me perfectly and seemed true to size. However, I ordered the long as I am 5-9" and the recommendation was that the long suited anyone over 5-6". Even with 1.5 inch heels, the dress gathered on the floor. As a result, I was unable to wear it to the function and went with a second dress I ordered. Perhaps if you wore 4-5 inch heels it would work but I don't. Anyways, next time I'll go with the regular length.

Great fit! Fabric was a bit heavy so I did get warm throughout the night. The 6L was perfect length with 4" heels. Fabric seams at bust were a bit strange to me but it worked. Color was so much fun!

I needed a last minute dress for prom and this was perfect. The color is stunning and it fits like a glove! I'm usually a size 6, but I wore an 8 because it was a little more comfortable. Overall true to size and great fit!

Soooo many compliments! Prepare to make an entrance.

This dress made me feel like a million bucks (at least for a few hours) It has some weight to it which made it hang and hug all the right places. It even gave me a butt I didn't know I had. I don't like fussy clothing that makes me fidget and I didn't want to take this off at the end of the night. I wear either size 2 or 4 and the 2 fit like it was tailored just for me. My only con is the 2L was almost too long for my heels. I had to walk to slowly to keep them from getting caught in the small train. Small price to pay for how good it made me feel.

Standout dress

Wore this to a black tie wedding last weekend and got a ton of compliments! It definitely hugs the curves, but that's what makes it look so great. I am smaller in the bust and it was almost too large for me on top, but I needed the room in the 6 for my hips/butt. It was the perfect length for me with 3.5" heels on.

Gala-vanting in DC

I'm a bit on the short side, so wearing this long dress made me feel like a runway model. I decided on the 0R, which fit like a glove and kept everything nice and tight. The length is perfect if you wear at least a 4' heel, otherwise you may experience some "drag". Overall, I am in love and didn't want to take it off at the end of the night. I have an athletic figure, but you wouldn't think that given this dress! My RTR "stylist godmother" at RTR Georgetown was amazing and picked this one out for me as I never in a million years would've gone with something so bright and fun!

Vibrant color stood out in a sea of black

The color and design are beautiful. The dress was slightly large in the waist and hips, but still looked great. The simply design was perfect. It is amazing how formal a plain gown can be, but it truly looked more formal and elegant than the heavily beaded dresses. I loved it and was photographed as best dressed for our local style magazine.

Should have warning sign: Curves Ahead

I had ordered a different gown from RTR, however one of the sizes was returned damaged by the previous renter so they allowed me to rent a separate gown. This was my separate gown. I loved the fit. I have 38DD breasts so I was worried about having too much cleavage exposed, as this was a formal work function. I wore the 12R and it landed at my feet with no heels which was strange since I am only 5'3". I ultimately chose the other gown only because I was lacking in matching accessories...but this dress is a stunner and would make any woman feel gorgeous in it.

Perfect for Black Tie Wedding

I rented this for a wedding and it was a hit! I got endless compliments all night. The dress fit like a glove but still had a little stretch in it. My only complain is that it was still a little loose in the chest area. If you have a bra with convertible straps you can wear with this no problem.

Amazingly stunning dress, comfortable and flattering!

This dress fit perfectly and my favorite part was that it showed off my curves! It was comfortable and flattering and the color is just beautiful. I am 5'5" and wore 3-4" heels and the length was perfect- and even when I took off my shoes I wasn't tripping over the bottom or holding it up because of the flare at the bottom. I could wear a regular bra with a cross cross back so that was a huge perk! Definitely a great dress and will rent again if the opportunity arises!

Beautiful dress! Perfectly accessorized with a tan and Spanx!

This dress is cut for those who are very evenly proportioned on top and bottom. Really nice fabric with a soft and good finish. The weight of the hem really lends itself to elongate the line of the gown, and there was plenty of room for me to wear very high heels under it. Ultimately I decided to go with another dress that fit a little better as I should have ordered a smaller size in this one which was not in stock when I placed my order, but will definitely keep this in mind for future events!

Amazing color, hugs every curve!!

I typically wear a size 0 and I am 5'8" & 112lbs. I ordered the 0L and wore 4.5 inch heels and it was perfect. It hugged me in all the right spots and I felt stunning in this dress. The color is a real show stopper!!
