Does the job
Bought this when I rented the Nicole Miller Sleek Mila Gown. It was about 4 inches too long for me and the tape held up the hem all night.

Made floor length dress not a mile long
Being just over 5ft tall, dresses are often way too long... long enough to puddle at my feet. This helped shorten a beautiful dress I wore to a friend's wedding. It was a lifesaver. A must have for future rentals of floor length dresses.

Took some time because the hem on my dress was really full, but this tape worked great.
Pros: easy to apply, small pieces made the hemline still flow Cons: none really, other than the time it takes

Good emergency fix
One of the groomsman's pants were too long. He used this hem tape to shorten the pants and said it worked great.

Having the perfect dress sure helped make the evening unforgettable..thank you..LOVE the red!xxxxxxx
I was really worried about the fit...my athletic body..wide shoulders..short waist..all what I thought would be limiting on finding a formal dress to fit ...well...this dress smoothed out all those worries right away.5'2" and can't wear high heels so I knew to request some hem tape which I had a tailor help me with. Thank you..this is the first formal dress I've worn since the High School prom 100 years ago!

It works!
I received the hem tape with my dress order when my original dress wasn't available. I used the tape to hem a nha khanh long gown that I used for my engagement pictures. It worked perfectly and was easy to take off. It held the hem in place for the entire time. Highly recommend this product.

Made a huge dress fit just fine!!
I used this to adjust the straps on a dress with a plunging V neck. I thought it wasn't going to work, but it ended up looking like nothing was out of place at all! I'd say that's a win.

After a lot of snafus with my order. RTR really went above and beyond sending many dresses to choose from and included this hem tape to help shorten the last minute dresses. Great product and customer service:)

I used this to hem a tight bandage dress up 4 inches. It was easy to use.... And worked like a charm. It held up all night without issue. I highly recommend this product.

It was the most beautiful I've ever felt in a dress!
The fit was absolutely flawless, except for the length. Thank goodness for the temporary hem tape, which made the whole glorious night possible! It didn't tear the lace and kept things right above the toe of my heels. Literally perfect.

Kept me from tripping over a hem that was just a bit too long!
This tape is terrific for everything from hemming to getting something to STAY. Being small-busted, I often use it when I'm wearing a loose, low-cut top and don't want any over-exposure. On my most recent trip, a friend borrowed a piece that she divided in two to help keep her shoe straps from falling down off the back of her ankles. A must-have for every fashionista!

Straightforward and easy to use
Totally did the job of hemming my RTR Shoshanna dress. Very clean and easy to use. Just don't forget to set aside some time to make the adjustments! (10-30 minutes) We did it by marking the length with the dress on, then "hemming" the remainder of the dress while it was off. P.s. - this was my first experience with this product. Would definitely use it again.

As a short girl, I can't go very long without need or using hem tape. It holds well and provides non-permanent help.

Really good quality tape!!
The tape worked great for several hours, but after dancing and having it stepped on by guys dancing by me and other girls' heels, it fell and I was holding my dress up the rest of the night. The fabric on my dress was very heavy, I imagine the tape would be perfect on a dress with less heavy fabric.
