Really good quality tape!!
Rented for: Formal Affair
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.

Great solution!
Rented for: Party
I rented the "Back in Action Romper" which was slightly too big on me. I used the hem tape to bring the shorts up about an inch and it worked perfectly. I made sure to measure the hem evenly, pinned it in place, and then ironed the new hem. Then I applied the tape in the fold with about a quarter inch between each piece of tape. The hem tape stayed in place after a full night of dancing and then came off easily the next morning.

Miracle worker!
Rented for: Formal Affair
As a short girl, I can't go very long without need or using hem tape. It holds well and provides non-permanent help.

It was alright.
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wasn't as efficient at applying it as I should have been. You really should take your time and measure the length all the way around. Make sure it is smooth and do not try to readjust after you have stuck it on. Some parts came undone and were sticking to my shoe as I walked. It was alright for one night though. No one noticed.

Used in Tux Sleeves
Rented for: Wedding
Used on the sleeves of my husbands tuxedo cuffs. Didn't hold well but may have been because of the weight of the material.

Love this tape!
Rented for: Other
This tape is great for shortening pants where the hem can't be seen. Best for use with dark colored pants, but not jeans where the hem is done in a different color thread. Tape holds well.

SO EASY TO USE!
Rented for: Vacation
I took it on a trip because I was afraid the train of a flowy dress I was borrowing would be too long. I was able to use the tape strategically to hem the dress to the perfect length! This tape is a MUST HAVE in any girls emergency pack.

I used the temporary hem tape to shorten a long dress to fit my 5'1" height. They certainly got the job done! Very easy to use, and held the dress up all night long.

Certainly helped to keep the dress I got at a reasonable length for my 5'2" frame.
Rented for: Wedding
Most of the dresses supplied by Rent the Runway run long for a 5'2" person even with heels. I am older and cannot wear more than a 2 1/2" heel, so the tape was mandatory to be sure the dress wouldn't drag on the ground or upstairs to the church as I walked. Very helpful.

helps hold up the hem when you're not sure if you're R or L and want to be safe.
Rented for: Wedding
Definitely worth investing in if you're on the fence with Regular or Long length. I'm 5'7" and love to wear heels so I'm always afraid ordering a Regular will leave me with that highwater dress look, these are great.

Great!
Rented for: Formal Affair
I was worried about this not staying for the entire night but it did without a problem. I'm really short so my dress was way too long, but with this tape, I was able to make it the perfect length. Definitely recommend it!

It stayed on for more than 24 hours- never lost its stick!
Rented for: Formal Affair
I used the fashion tape for a floor length gown that I needed to shorten by several inches. It was a huge pain to put on, but that would happen with any fashion tape. I put the tape on 24 hours before the event and it never lost its stickiness.

I wish that I had had the time and patience to use it on the bottom hem of my dress because I really think it would've helped. It held all night, through dancing and sweating.

Helped my dress to fall just the way I wanted it to!
Rented for: Formal Affair
My dress fell a little below my knees, making it hard to move around. It would have been hard to dance without the temporary hem tape! I was able to use it to take the dress up about a half an inch, and it stayed all night! Definitely worth the cost!

This tape saved my night!
Rented for: Formal Affair
I got a call the day before my rental was supposed to come in saying that the 0R dress was no longer fit to wear and that they only had the 0L available, so they included this tape for no added charge. I am 5'4, and with my 5.5 inch platform heels, the 0L was about 1.5" too long. I was worried that the tape would not be able to hold up the material of my dress (there was a LOT of beading and the dress itself was very heavy), but it lasted the entire night! I even used the same tape up top to keep the girls from hanging out!

I used this tape to shorten a floor-length dress. Most dresses are made for very tall people! I'm 5'7 and still needed it. It worked great!

Perfect
Rented for: Formal Affair
Highly recommend. I am short, so all dresses are long on me. I knew what ever I got would need to be hemmed. This tape was perfect. I felt so sure of it. The tape comes in 4 inch strips, which makes it easy to apply. The box has 18 strips. I ordered one box, and felt I needed more. My dress had lining, so it was like hemming it twice. I wish I had three boxes. (The dress was very full and flowy.) I would purchase this again.

Worked Great
Rented for: Party
I used it on the dress I rented for the Christmas party and it kept the hem in place all evening with no proble. It was very easy to use. I ordered 2 as I rent a lot of dresses and thought I might neet it in the future.
