I wore this exquisite gown to a formal Mardi Gras ball in New Orleans. Received numerous compliments
The fit was perfect. I am a 0R, 5'6'' tall. I wore 3" heels and it was the perfect length. I would definitely recommend this gown

You can not describe the detail and quality of this dress!
It is a heavy material but feels luxurious! I could have worn the 10 but felt great and wore the 8 but at the end of the evening the boning was leaving its mark! No bra was needed (36C) and I wore a 3" (5'7"). LOVED this dress!

Back-up dress. Didn't wear it but it's a gorgeous dress.
Gorgeous dress. RTR sent this as a backup when my dress was no longer available. I would have happily worn this dress, but it was kind of high-waisted. I am 5'8, pear-shaped so the dress looked like a tent on the bottom. It just wasn't that fltatering on me.

This gown and I stole the show!!!!
This gown is stunning - and everything about it is stunning. I rented this for my spring voice recital and it was perfect!!!! It was big on me and I had to pin it to my bra, but wow what a gorgeous gown, and this was my first experience with rent the runway. Definitely renting again!!!!

Absolute Perfection- with pockets!
This dress fit like a dream- comfortable, true to size and had pockets! It was perfect for a black tie event and I felt like a Queen! No bra needed, as the built-in corset was supportive and comfortable (really!). No handbag required because the pockets were genius and well-concealed. I ordered the 4 Long, and the length was perfect with 3 inch heels. I was inundated with compliments all night :)

The dress came and it was more breathtaking than the picture gives it credit for.
The dress is a little long, I wore six inch heels and it was off the ground just enough to walk. The six fit perfectly around my bust. The color isn't green though, it's more of a metallic grey and white with gold highlights. Either way it was gorgeous and it was the perfect dress! Also has pockets :)

Beautiful dress but runs very small in bodice.
This dress made my feel like a princess but it was too tight in the bust so I didn't wear it to the event. Definitely order the "long" if you are 5'9" or taller.

This was my favorite gown out of every one I've ever worn.
It's a bit pricky at the waist. It has probably been dry cleaned so many times that it's a bit worn out. But other than that, the height was fine too. I'm 5'2 and wore 2 inch heels and it was perfect.

Pretty dress but hot!
This was my backup style for a black tie wedding and I had to rent it in a 10L instead of my usual 8L (wasn't available). I was able to make it work by adding a super tight belt to hold the dress up. I'm 5'10" & wore 4" heels. It could have been a couple inches longer but was okay to wear. The thick material is very hot. I felt like I had a comforter on LOL but overall it was a nice dress.

ONLY RENT IF YOU WANT TO BE COMPLIMENTED ALL NIGHT
This dress was stunning. Absolutely stunning. I recovered compliments all night on this dress and never felt so glamorous and beautiful. I am usually a size 14 but the 14R was huge on me. The 12 was a tad tight in the bust but it worked out fine. The boning did stick out a bit which was uncomfortable but worth it for the look. Highly recommend.

Stunning!! Perfect for formal or black tie affair!
This dress fit true to size and has built in support for the bust so a bra didn't take up more space. It held up all night and the long length was perfect for me at 5'9" wearing 3-4 inch heels. It's elegant and the texture is decadent. I received many compliments and so will you wearing this!

Lots of compliments from strangers!
This dress runs large, so size down (maybe even 2 sizes down) - I am not a thin woman and I had to wear a belt to help hold it up (despite having a big bust). Also, the boning inside the dress is a little awkward and uncomfortable because it almost curved into my ribs. That said, the fabric was stunning - a little shimmery and the pattern is unique and beautiful. I am short and it fit me well with heels, so if you're taller you should keep this in mind. I love this designer - the dresses are high quality and truly gorgeous in person.

Glamorous Gala
I love a dress with pockets. The pockets are big enough to hold my iPhone 6S Plus and not be visible. With the heels I had on, the dress just hovered over the floor. The bodice is perfect, you don't need to wear spanxs. The dress is so amazing so keep it simple with the accessories.

How wonderful my stylist was in getting me another dress the last minute
My original choice was not a good fit and I just didn't feel pretty in it. At 6:30pm the night before my gala I called and she couldn't have been more helpful finding me another dress ! It arrived at 11am the next day. I reviewed many compliments on the how and I will definitely be using you again!

Fit runs very small!
The pictures of this dress had me enthralled and it really is an unusual fabric in person. Not only is it embossed, but it's also iridescent, with greens and golds. I didn't wear this dress because even though I sized up, it was still too small. I'd recommend sizing up 1 to 2 sizes.

An outstanding dress. I received so many compliments on it.
I am a small size 0 and the dress fit perfect (not too tight but not loose). Being 5'2", I'm already short and unexpectedly couldn't wear heels (knee injury) so I found fabric tape and taped up the outside jacquard layers. I then used a simple stitch to bring up the 3 tulle layers underneath. It looked great! The tape was strong enough to hold it up but came off easy enough without leaving any residue on the dress. The fabric was heavy but not as much as I thought it would be. I was comfortable the whole night. The lighter parts of the dress were more of a cream color and less bright than what it looks like in the stock photo and the darker color isn't really a green like the description says (more like a gray/silver with iridescent). Still beautiful.

The boning is very fitted. I went up to my 10R backup because the 8 was super tight. I'm 5'-7" and the length was great with a flat sandal, dress skimmed the ground and was perfect and comfortable.

Purely magical. I love this dress. It was perfect for a wintery evening.
I love that this was the exact cut of my wedding dress. Which also happened to be white and silver. The fit was perfect for my frame, which I have a short waist and large bust. It was effortless to move around in. Theia makes amazing dresses. I have had the privilege to wear multiple dresses by the designer and every single one seems to fit so well! I didn't feel the need to wear special undergarments, and skipped wearing a bra, as this seemed to hold everything in place.

Perfect for the night
Dress was lovely and the pockets were a great bonus. The original 10R fit great through the hips, but the bust runs small. The 12R took care of that problem. Didn't need a bra at all with the built in boning which was great with the amount of dancing I did that night. Does tend to be a bit long, so I wore my heels most of the night to keep from tripping on it (mind you I'm only 5'4"). Material was heavier than I was expecting but was not too cumbersome.

too many compliments!
The dress is amazing. The top is a corset so the dress stayed where is was supposed to all night. The picture online makes it appear the bottom of the dress is white, but in reality it is more of a champagne with gold hints. I am 5'5 and ordered the long since my heels were super high... it was still too long. But with a little bit of fabric tape, it was perfect. I received many compliments all night.

Gorgeous dress. I was the belle of the ball.
Held up all night long. I didn't feel like I was falling out or having to readjust constantly. Even ate a large dinner and danced the night away. Would rent this exact dress again!

This is a stunning dress and I can't wait to have another formal event to be able to wear it! The size was large for me and by the time I got it and tried it on, the next size down was unavailable. Love, love, love this dress!

built in corset and pockets!
I rented this dress for a fall gala. As previous reviewers mentioned the corset is very tight and can be difficult to hook yourself. I was able to buckle mine for the event, but I needed help to get the zipper up. The length was perfect for me, but I wore 3+ inch heels. I was totally able to dance and eat in the gown, so that was also a plus.

Not only was the dress unique, but it fit like a glove!
I wore this dress to a black tie event. The photo does not do the dress justice. The pattern is exquisite, and the photo makes it look a bit shinier than it really is. I wear a 34 DDD and the top fit fine. SO if you are smaller chested, this dress may not work for you. I'm 5'4" and wore 4 inch heels. The length was just right.

Perfect for a formal affair!
Great gown for a formal affair. This dress was a bit snug. I am usually a 4, and went to the Theia website to make sure I was getting the right size, ordered the 4, but did need help hooking up the built-in bodice because it was quite snug. I was unable to wear any type of bra with the dress because it was already so snug up top (and I'm small-busted!). But the dress was not uncomfortable in the least. I wore it for almost 6 hours and no complaints! Just lots of compliments. The gown did drag on the floor for me as I'm very short (5'0"), even wearing 4 inch heels. This wasn't a total surprise and I just lifted my gown a bit when I walked or danced. Great success!

Big S/O to RTR for making me look good for my fundraiser ball!
This dress is wonderful! It's so comfortable and hides a wide midsection. I have a very ample chest and the girls fit in just fine. There are hangers on the inside of the dress that have a tendency to pop out, but I'm sure a few safety pins could fix that issue. One thing I loved about this dress is that it has a "bra" built in - there is extra support for my other well-endowed ladies out there. One other thing I loved about this dress - POCKETS! The long was a perfect length for me - I'm about 5'8" and I wore 3" heels.

Rented this dress for the winter military ball.
The dress was beautiful. But was too big. I wear a size 16 and ordered the 16wl and 18wl I needed a 14wl. I ended up putting 2 safety pins to attach it to my bra so it wouldn't fall off. Worked out great. Love the pockets. This dress was amazing

This dress is perfect for a winter ball! It looks like it has snow or ice on it. It was comfortable. It fitngreat in the body, but was long. I wore 3" heels and it was dragging.

Stunning dress
This dress is absolutely beautiful and I was so excited to wear it. However, the dress arrived damaged, which was a little disappointing. Luckily, RTR has ~fantastic~ customer service. I emailed them letting them know about how my dress arrived and they told me that they could send me another dress that would arrive on the day of my event. So shoutout to the RTR customer service team for helping turn this potentially disastrous situation around. Thanks a million!

I highly recommend the dress! It's very glamorous.
This dress is absolutely stunning and the print is beyond slimming. I am only 5'1" and even with 4 inch heels, the dress was too long. No amount of hem tape would work. I couldn't wear the dress, but the experience of getting and returning was fabulous and most efficient. My next order includes some petites, so I am hopeful the length will work. I highly recommend the dress! It's very glamorous.

An Unforgettable, Unique Gown
I rented this dress for a very large black tie holiday party and it was absolutely stunning and the most unique dress there. The fabric is shimmering and rich in color (it is a very dark green, almost black, and champagne at the bottom), and while it is thick (kept me warm during a Chicago blizzard), it is not heavy. It fit like a glove everywhere except the bust, which was pretty loose. I am not a heels girl, so I wore two-inch wedges and the dress dragged about an inch on the ground, but it wasn't hard to just lift it a little to move around. It felt beautiful and princess-like but the print kept it pretty rock-n-roll at the same time. I didn't want to return it :)

All eyes on this dress at the Metropolitan Fashion Show!
This dress was a dream! Gorgeous fabric with multi dimensional color and texture. So interesting to look at. People just couldn't stop staring at this dress! So many compliments! The pockets were fabulous. I wore the extra length with a 2 inch heel. Absolutely loved this dress. Would easily wear/rent again!
