This dress is SO CUTE! Like the other reviewers have said, it's more grayish-silver, which means you can wear pretty much anything with it. I wore it to prom and got so many compliments, it's totally different and classy/sexy! The top is pretty loose; I'm no pixie, but i needed some tape to hold up the 4. If you have curvy hips and are self-conscious about them I'd be careful, the silk highlights every curve; it was too cute for me to care, though! Highly recommended :)

I'm 5'11 and really want to wear this dress and I won't be wearing heels. Do you think that the end of the dress will still reach the floor?
RTRMay 17, 2011
Hi Maggie! This dress will be short on you even without heels! I would recommend looking for a dress that comes in two lengths and definitely go with the Long!

The dress ran large (I wore the 2 and I'm a 32B 115 lbs. My mom could fit into the 4 and she normally wears an 8/10) so I was pulling it up all night, but it was gorgeous. But, when I received it it was distressed to say the least. The boning in the corseted part was sticking out. It poked into me and made the dress look weird. It was also torn on the inside. I ended up temporarily stitching the boning into place so that I could at least have something to wear. It was a gorgeous dress (which is why I gave it a 3) but it came to me in such poor condition that I would not rent again.

The best compliment was from my younger sister who said I looked perfect.

This dress was amazing. I wore it for my senior prom and it turned out to be a hit. I am average height (5'5) and the length was perfect for me while in a pair of heels. The only problem I had was with the dress staying up. I ordered a 6 and 8 but realized that I most definitely should have gone 4 and 6. It was kind of lose on my bust area, and I have C cup boobs, so maybe go smaller. Other than that, it was cute, and classy, and wonderful.

People told me I looked like an Audrey Hepburn!

I rented this dress for prom and was so excited when it came in the mail. The size six was significantly shorter than the size four, and was too big, so I ended up wearing the size four. It was really tight, and the boning was popping out, but other than that the dress was lovely! I used the dress tapes RTR sent along with the dress to hem it a little. I went with a classy look - a bun, red lipstick, and winged eyeliner - and got tons of complements. Perfect for an hourglass shape. Great feel to it.

I'm 5'3 and weigh 120 pounds with an hourglass body type. I ordered a size 2 and 4 just in case one didn't fit right. Do you think those sizes were right for me to choose?

Hi Michaela, Yes this is what sizes we would recommend for your body type!

I couldnt dance in it, so I left early :( But the material was amazing, felt strong, soft not cheap

if you're 5'0," have it hemmed. The top section, is a looser fit than it looks.

this dress was so unique and very different from all the other dresses at prom! really happy with my RTR experience

BethNovember 7, 2012
Alex, we're about the same size, what height of heels did you wear with it?
RTR CustomerNovember 7, 2012
Hi Beth! You should be able to wear 2-3 inch heels with this dress if you are around the same height as Alex!
AlexNovember 7, 2012
beth, i wore 4 inch heels!
michaelaNovember 7, 2012
Was the dress more black in color or did it have more of a pink tone?

Simple and beautiful

This dress is a great deal if you want to get a long dress, look elegant but not pay much. I rented for a wedding. The dress looks classic but simple. Under the black translucent fabric it is purple so that way it is sort of a black dress but festive. Also it is great for girls with big hips, I usually wear a 6 or 8 because of my wide hips but I fit in a size 4 no problem. I didn't feel trap at all. It was tight but comfortable. Enjoy it!!

I wore this for a concert. It was perfect because of the light fabric and flattering fit!

However, my only complaint is that it is very wide at the top of the bust. I had to pin it so it wouldn't fall down. Otherwise I would have given it 5 stars.

Cuter in pictures than I felt in it

The only available size was a 6, which was just too big in the chest ( even though I'm busty!), so I was pulling it up all night. But I got a ton of compliments and it looks GREAT in pictures!

Dress lives up to its photo. Very elegant.

I chose this as a backup dress and ordered a 2 (the 0 was not available). The top was way too big, so obviously a 0 would've been more perfect for me. However, the dress is great and I recommend it. As always, it was a bit long--but when you're 5'0", everything runs long.

I ordered the sizes that I thought would be best for me, I tried them on and they did not fit, especially in the bust area (which never happens with me). It would have been super pretty had the bust area been bigger.

Generally a good option for a winterfest dance.

The top with the boning made it very straight and hard to find the right bra to go with. I felt like i was pulling it up most of the night.

I loved this dress but the size was too small and the size up was not available for my event.

The dress runs small. I have a large rib cage but a very small frame. I would suggest going a size up if you have a similar problem. I called the help line and they offered to overnight ship me a dress for my event. Unfortunately, that dress never arrived (miscommunication between RTR, UPS and myself) and I had to go shopping 3 hours before my event started. I think this dress would have been perfect but I received incredible customer service so I'll definitely rent from RTR again!

I rented the 4R and the 6R and wound up wearing the 4. It was very tight in the waist but I couldn't fill out the bust (34B). A push-up bra fixed the problem. Overall really cute and well made and looked great with black shoes

I LOVED this dress. I'm 5'4", 123 lbs, 34B and I ordered the size 4 and size 2 for back up. I actually ended up wearing the 2 and i'm rarely that size. If you wear this in the winter time, I would say skip the tights because the static is hard to control. Got tons of compliments and felt beautiful in it!

Perfect. Night.

This dress was just perfect! I wore it for my winter formal and everyone loved it. It's so classy yet sexy at the same time. I Suggest buying tape for the top, but otherwise very flattering and comfortable. A little long, but nothing a pair of heels can't fix.

Gorgeous Dress

I wore this dress to a black tie wedding and it was stunning. I am 4 months pregnant and it even showed off my baby bump gracefully. However, I could wear it when not pregnant and it would just lie a bit flatter. So great I wanted to buy it!

Not what I was expecting

I rented this dress for a military formal, and was so disappointed when it arrived. This dress fit on a sense that it zipped, but that's about it. The dress itself is beautiful. However, the bust is designed for a smaller cup, I'm currently a nursing size F and this just wasn't going to cut it. The fabric is also extremely thin and flimsy, and the dress is short. I am not a tall person, 5'3, and I wasn't going to be able to wear any kind of heel. The way the dress sits at the waist is awkward. I still looked incredibly pregnant in it, and I don't still look pregnant in anything else. While I was disappointed in my selection, RTR was great about getting back to me, and gave a site credit. This won't deter me from using them again :)

Convenient packaging, email updates

I rented this dress for my senior prom. The description seemed to fit my body type pretty well (small chested, petite, short) but I was still scared it'd end up too long being only 5'1 and super flat. To my surprise, it fit absolutely perfectly. It's a thin material that's comforable to wear all night.

Rent the Runway is easy to rent from, and there are lots of amazing dresses to choose from! No one could get over how awesome she looked with her dress. Words quoted by someone: "Wow, she looks like a celebrity!".

I ordered this for my sister for her to wear to her prom. We were scared that if would fit her too tight, but it was a perfect fit! She looked GORGEOUS and received lots of compliments. We were really satisfied, and it also wasn't too pricey to rent.

Overall good, some flaws

I really loved the overall look of the dress. Great for a senior prom! I got lots of compliments and felt it was flattering especially for a small bust with bigger hips. It changes appearance with the light, which was really cool and pretty, but it was never as coppery as the picture here suggests. My dress had one of the boning wires sticking out in the back, so I was sort of uncomfortable in that respect. I usually wear an 8 because of my wide hips etc., but I wore the 6 because maybe just from repeated wearing the dresses were kind of stretched out. I noticed some wear and tear on the inside (invisible once put on), but maybe this particular dress needs to be retired soon.

SHORT! Beware if you are tall!

I'm 5'7" and rented this dress because the majority of the reviews I saw were all excellent. When it arrived I was very disappointed that it was above the floor when I was barefoot and it could only have been worn with flats. For a formal affair, I like to wear heels so I had to return it and wear something else. I wish it would have been longer because it fit great in the chest area and it looked flattering on me. Only problem is the length.

This dress was perfect for a black tie dinner. Highlight of the nite, hearing finance brag on me :-)

Fit: True to size Pros: Shipment arrived on time. The dress did not wrinkle, well made, and comfortable. The underlay is more of a peach color which matched perfectly with my BCBG pumps. Customer service was awesome! The ladies at RTR are happy to answer question and help you find a solution. I will order from RTR for all of my formal events! Cons: A little long for me at 5' 1". After reading a few reviews, I added invisible hem tape to my order, but should note it requires more than one packet to do the trick. Also the padding on the inside of the dress was a little jumbled, so getting the top to lay flat was a little tricky.

SO CLASSY! My dress was so special and unlike any other dress at my event!

I have been in love with this dress for months! I wanted to get it for prom last year, but unfortunately I didn't order it soon enough and couldn't get it. I ended up getting a different dress from rtr and I loved it! Anyways, I was so glad I finally got to rent this dress. I was in love with the picture online. It's so sophisticated and has a vintage air that I love. The corset boning makes you feel very sexy without being provacative. It's such a classy dress over all!! However, I do wish I could have gotten a 2 in time for my event (which was really my problem for not ordering it ahead). I just pinned the sides a little because the top wasn't very tight-fitting and the pink chiffon linning would show from the side. It helped a little. Also, it was not floor length on me because there was not a longer length option. The size notes say the length works best for girls who are 5'8 and below. It doesn't look too weird with heels on. I got so many compliments and felt beautiful!!! I wore simple jewelry since it was for a concert, but for a more formal event the blue agate? earrings looked beautiful! LOVE LOVE LOVE RTR!

Hi, I'm around the same size/measurements as you, except I'm a few inches shorter. I'm 5'7", 120 lbs, and 32A. What size would you recommend getting, based on your experience with the dress? Thanks!
RTR CustomerDecember 26, 2012
Hi Angie! If you have a similar body type, I would suggest getting the 4 as well, since it looks like it fit Margaux great!

My boyfriend loved it!

Some of the bone structure in the top was coming out of the dress, which made it a little uncomfortable because the plastic kind of stuck into my ribs. Other than that, great!
