The dress fit perfectly, it made me feel so beautiful!

It is tight around the chest area, I couldn't fit a bra underneath. The lace detail was beautiful. I danced in this dress for 6 hours, it's very comfortable. I'm 5'2" and could have almost gotten away with wearing flats. I highly recommend this Vera, it was perfect!

Gorgeous neckline and unique dress!

The dress was a beautiful fabric and I loved the lace accent at the sternum. The low back was amazing as well. I was endlessly complimented on the dress and extremely comfortable all night in it. The only downside is that I was unable to get a 2 so I had to pick between the 0 which was a little too small and the 4 which was a little too big. I went with the 4 and in pictures taken from the front the dress looks like it fits beautifully. This is a very flattering dress and I highly recommend it!

Extremely flattering dress

The material of the dress was absolutely beautiful! I usually wear a size 2 but because of my larger chest and based on everyone's reviews on RTR I chose the 4 and it could not have fit better. It was a little roomy on the sides of the dress but when sitting it becomes a bit more snug so it ended up being perfect. I didn't need to wear a bra with this dress as the top fit perfectly. I received so many compliments as this dress really does look gorgeous on!

It was so easy!

Fits snug, I would normally probably wear an 8, but the mermaid style makes it feel smaller. Luckily I had the size 10 as well. Definitely don't wear high heels. A flat or a low heel work best with the length of this dress. It's supposed to touch the ground. Dress arrived on time and in good condition, returning was not stressful at all. Absolutely beautiful, I got compliments all evening, and I couldn't wait to tell everyone I RENTED it!!

The minute you put on this dress, you feel fabulous and ready to go! Sexy! But super comfortable!!

I'm often a size 0 but could not finish zipping up the 0. The size 2 was perfect but it clearly runs small. It's a nice dress for straighter bodies- adds some curves.

Amazing gown!

This dress was amazing and very well made. I felt comfortable in it the entire evening (Ballet Gala). Interestingly this was the first dress from RTR where I had to go one size up because it is super fitted around your chest. If you have a C cup then guaranteed you'd go one size up. Also, the dress is short so order normal length at least. In any case, I really enjoyed wearing it and the dress was super appropriate for a formal event.

The dress itself is very elegant, and the silk material underneath the lace makes a comfortable fit

Because my boyfriend goes to another school, I always have double the dances. I wore this dress to his prom, because I didn't want to buy another dress. The 2 was just a little small around my back because I have broader shoulders, but I was very impressed with how perfect it was! It fit like a glove, and I would say very true to size. I have an athletic build, and the neckline really complimented that, also the top is tight so I did not have to worry about an undergarment. The quality is amazing, and I will definitely order for RTR again!

Beautiful but order up in size

I ordered this gown for a formal wedding and it was beautiful. However the size 10 was extremely tight. Being that I'm curvy I needed more give in my hips and bust. The dress was also much shorter than I thought it would be. Too short even when barefoot. If ordering this order up a size or two and be cautious if you're tall.

Stunning dress

I absolutely loved this dress! I was so amazed it was a Vera wang dress for only $70! I wore this dress to my prom and I was worried it would be too long on me since I'm only 5'1 but when I put on my heels it was the perfect length. Everywhere else it for I just wish it was a little tighter around my waist because in the back it was a little loose so it wasn't tight like I wanted it to be on my butt. When I tried on the free I noticed there were two little rips on the front but they're not that noticeable (idk if you can tell in the picture). Everyone complimented me though so if you want to stun ppl I'd definitely recommend this dress!

Masquerade Party

Wore this dress to a masquerade party. Loved it. It fit the theme well. I got many compliments on my dress. Only con is I would have liked it to touch the floor but it didn't. I am 5'8". Either way it was a good dress choice.

A Fabulous Dress!

This dress was stunning. I highly recommend renting it. I usually wear a size 0, but I'd recommend sizing up. Unfortunately, the 2 wasn't available for the date I wanted. I was still extremely pleased with this dress, however.

Masquerade Ball Perfection!

I rented this dress for a Masquerade themed dinner my company was hosting. I knew I wanted something with lace to match my mask and I was over the moon when I found this dress. I ordered the 4 and 6 to be safe. Both dresses fit, but the 4 showed off my figure a little more so I went with that one. I received compliments all night on it. Such a perfect dress!

I'm 5'7" so the 4R was a little short, but I bought some cute flats and I was comfortable all night. The dress fit like a glove and hugged me in all the right places. I loved this dress! First time renting the runway and I'll be back!

The dress fit the occasion. This dress really offers elegance.

I loved the dress but it was loose in the stomach and hip area and wish it were a bit more fitted for being a size 0. I am 5'3" and the 0R was a great length with my 4" heels.

Classic Hollywood

order this for a black tie wedding. it was beautiful, it was a last minute pick because something had happen to the original dress I rented wouldn't have changed a thing. I usually wear a size 4 but the runway advisor I talked to said they run small to give it a try, as soon as I tried it on it looked beautiful, gives you an hourglass figure if you don't have you through the sowed in corset. it was a beautiful dress, very detail and true to the picture shown.

I was at a celebrity event, and I felt like a million bucks in this dress..

The dress is gorgeous. Its for petite gals and you should re mindful if your bigger on top because you will have to up size, there is NO give in this dress. I usually wear a 0R, but went to a 2R and just could zipper the back because I have implants. But I can tell you if you got the curves- this dress will show them. NO long at all I am only 5'2 100 pounds and the Regular with 4 inch heels was just right. No bra needed in this dress as it hold them in tight and has a beautiful split in the middle without revealing anything. I cant say enough about the dress. I loved being in it. A little heavy at the bottom, so if you plan on doing a lot of dancing be prepared to sweat! But who cares, its a night to be Cinderella!!

The design of the flowers on the dress and the flawy bottom. My Pic won't upload on this site :(

Snug in the hips, had a little bit of room in the bust area but it worked fine and it was the perfect length.

AMAZING DRESS everyone loved it. I was afraid that it wouldn't fit my petite 5ft 105pound self.

I was afraid that it wouldn't fit my petite 5ft 105pound frame but it looked as if it were Tailored for me. I wore 4in nude pumps. I will rent again, no question. I wore it for a Gala.

Careful! This dress is very short.

This dress is gorgeous, but when it came it was about 6 inches too short for me (which made for a good laugh). I'm tall...but not THAT tall 5'8".

I felt like a million bucks!

The dress is beautiful, and the flower lace pattern was perfect for a black-tie optional formal spring wedding. However, it was very form-fitting, so I really debated whether I should have tried the 12R. After eating dinner and dessert, the dress was even tighter, so I would consider sizing up if I rented this dress again. I wore bra petals since a strapless bra wouldn't fit and would have shown under the lacey sheer v in the dress, and I wore spanx to smooth out my waist/hip area. The dress was also short and I couldn't wear heels higher than 2 1/2 inches and the dress still didn't fully touch the floor. Overall I got many compliments and was able to promote the wonderful Rent the Runway company!

It's a Vera!

This is a great dress. I liked it the best out of all the dresses at the event! The fabric is high quality, the top is very different from your usual strapless gowns you see at events, and it has a mermaid-style fit which is always flattering. Very elegant, unique, and sexy. It's a Vera so as the saying goes, "you don't alter Vera to fit yourself, you alter yourself to fit Vera!" So, with that being said, it does run smaller being a designer dress. So I would size up and it will be great. Also, I got the Regular size instead of the Long (it wasn't available) so I wasn't able to wear my usual stilettos. So also consider your height and heel height when ordering. I ended up lower the straps (they are adjustable) so my 2 inch heels I had to by would work with the length of the dress. Also, Rent the Runway is such an amazing company to offer such an amazing and expensive designer dress of a small fraction of the retail price. I'd highly consider renting this dress! And also complement the dress with the 'Ciner Glimmer of Radiance Earring', the pave crystal petals match exactly to the petals of the lace flowers on the dress!

Wore it for prom, got so many compliments!

Decided to rent a dress for prom since it wasn't my prom; best decision I ever made. I LOVED the dress! There was only one problem: the bottom of the dress had small rips, but since it was lace it was barely noticeable! Loved the dress, loved the service!

Overall Beautiful Dress Visually -- Some Design Flaws for Bustier Girls

On the hanger, this dress is beautiful. It's a medium-weight dress with one layer of black lace and a second layer of a gold toned slip. I'm normally between a size 6 and 8. If you're a busty girl- this dress might not be for you. I am a size 32DD and the 6 wouldn't close around my chest, the 8 BARELY closed. The stitching on the bust part of the dress isn't flattering to bigger chests - I felt like my chest was being smushed flat instead of pushed up. I did wear a strapless bra underneath, but I kept have to pull it up through the night. Also, I found the dress to be very constricting in terms of movement - I felt like i was going to rip it every time I sat down (it was more comfortable to walk in than sit in). Also - I'm about 5'6" and wore flats - the dress would have been way too short for heals. I did receive a lot of compliments, and am glad I rented it - but if you're a busty hour-glass shaped girl, I would suggest a dress better designed for that figure.

The lace was lovely, I felt quite sophisticated, starting drinking every beverage with my pinky out.

I probably shouldn't have worn heels because the dress grazed the floor when I was barefoot, but I ended up dancing/walking around shoe-less for most of prom because the heels were uncomfortable regardless. The chest felt tight at first (I thought I would have to unzip the back to take a deep breath once in a while) but after a bit I stopped noticing that feeling. Overall: great condition, great night!

Elegant and sexy

I wore this to a masquerade party. It runs small, the OR fit fine everywhere except the armpit/chest area where it was digging in quite a bit. The 2R fit pretty similarly but was slightly baggy in the same area. I wore the larger size. This dress is rather short, and I noticed no difference in length between the two sizes. The lining on the 2R had either stretched out or been steamed incorrectly because it was hanging below the bottom of the lace. I wore it anyway. I got several compliments and definitely felt very glamorous.

I'm usually a 4 but that was snug so I went with the 6. For fellow tall girls, it is a little short so order long if you can!

I absolutely loved this dress. I wore it for a formal New Years Party.

I'm 5'3" so the Regular fit perfect with 4" heels. I'm a curvy girl with a big bust so the only issue I had was the top was a bit tight. I received so many compliments and after losing 30lbs this was the dress that showed off my new body. I will definitely rent again!

Dress had no give to the fabric. Extremely slimming and elongating. Wore this with a NuBra but felt a little squished on top due to the tightness. Overall an absolute stunning gown. Compliments all night.

I couldn't have been happier with this choice; I received so many compliments! Felt so beautiful!

I typically wear a size 0 in regular sized dresses, but since the reviews said it ran small, I ordered a 2 and 4 to be safe, and am glad I ordered a size up. I ended up in the 2 and it fit beautifully! I could have worn higher heels, but the 2" heels worked ok. You don't need a bra, but it wasn't uncomfortable. Overall, classy and elegant describe this dress!

Great fabric!

I loved the detail of the fabric, it was very flattering and beautiful. I didn't like the way the top was cut, I was super self conscious about "back fat" or "side boob fat" which I never have but this dress made me have that! Especially when sitting down. It was almost too short but I wore low heels.

Laissez le bon temps roulet!

The dress itself was absolutely beautiful. However, on me, it was okay. Even with Spanx, it was a little snug. I agree with the other reviews in that the dress was not very long. The heels I wore were only 3" and the dress did not hit the floor. If the dress was offered in one size larger it would have been perfect. Nevertheless, I was still able to dance and have a good time. I will definitely rent again.

Stunning dress!!

Fits like a glove, yet very comfortable. Great for showing off well toned upper body. Unless you have "six pack" arms, wear waist nipping, extra firm Spanx other wise, every imperfection will be accentuated. Would definitely rent again.

Pretty but short.

I rented this as a back up dress for a wedding, and was grateful it was my back up. While the dress is beautiful, it runs short - very short. If you are petite, this is the dress for you. 5'6 and up - I would hesitate to rent.

Beautiful gown. Loved the lace. Perfect for my pear shaped figure.

Pros: beautiful fabric which gives with body. Cons: Runs small around chest. I'm a 36B and 10P ran small on my chest, however it was perfect on my pear shaped hips. I did try my backup 12P, but it was too big. Had to pin hem of inner slip as it was about 1" longer than black lace on my body.

Stylists Review

Beautiful! This is such a gorgeous, classic gown. It is very fitted and has no give in the fabric. If you are bigger in the hips I would size up. However, it hugs your body and gives you such a gorgeous shape. The details and fabric are amazing in person. I did not have heels on and the length was fine. But I would get a Long length if I were to wear heels.
