I received SO many compliments on my dress. The color was stunning and looked great!

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I received my original two sizes in the mail the wednesday before my event and although the 4 fit, it had a stain on it. I called the rent the runway girls and they overnighted me two additional sizes, since the 4 was slightly baggy. Such great customer service. I ended up wearing the 2 because I didn't want to be tugging up the dress the whole evening. The only con I would say is the length of the dress. I went by what the guidelines suggested for regular or short and got the regular. I was stepping on it all night and having to hold it up. Wasn't a huge deal, but probably would've gotten the short if I had realized the length in enough time. Overall, great experience and I LOVED the dress. Who doesn't like red dresses, red lipstick and a wedding on Valentines Day Weekend?!

I ordered both the 4R and 4L and ended up loving the 4L. The dress fit absolutely perfectly. I am a 34D and I didn't even need to wear a bra with this. It has stretch so its comfortable but it also doesn't feel like it's going to fall off. Flattering in every way.

The dress fit good the only problem was that the front kept going down throughout the night. I suggest wearing it with a bra under that'll keep it tight.

This dress was gorgeous!

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The fit was perfect, except for the length. It was way too long for me, even with my heels, and I had to hold it up whenever I walked or danced. It was too beautiful not to wear, though, so I wore it anyway, and it wasn't that much of a problem. The red is a gorgeous color; bright without being tacky or obnoxious. A gorgeous dress, not too over the top but still stunning.

I felt so glamorous!

Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The fit was a little smaller than expected...2L was snug, but it felt very secure the whole night. Overall, I enjoyed how it looked and felt very much...I didn't want to give it back! I got several compliments and was even told I had the best dress of the night! My biggest dilemma was deciding if I needed a long or not. But at 5'6" the length of the long was just right!

I had no dress a week before prom but I finally found it here at RTR!

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
It was a great dress. When I went to try it on at the stores I tried a 4 and it was a good snug tight fit so I don't need to be readjusting the strapless part but at the day of the event I was thinking wait I should have it looser to dance and eat and do all I want. It was a little loose but not bad it didn't strip me. I'm so happy I had the perfect dress for prom. NON STOP COMPLIMENTS!!!

Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The fit was great complimented my body in all the right areas. The only con is that I'm 5'7 and a 1/2 and the long was too long. I would have gotten a regular. I think it also depends on the shoes you are wearing. Mine were 2 inch heels and the dress was dragging on the ground. In this picture the dress is sewn a bit where it was easy to get out to return.

This dress fits beautifully and is absolutely perfect for prom. It made me feel glamorous!

Size worn: 0L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
When I rented it, the dress wasn't available in a 0R, so I had to buy it in a 0L and 2R. Unfortunately, the 0L was almost 5 inches too long, even with 4.5-inch heels, and the 2R was to big in the bust, so I had to use temporary hemming tape to hem it up. Despite this, the dress was incredibly comfortable and beautifully form fitting! It made me feel elegant and glamorous and I received many compliments!

Felt like a princess, comfortable all night and got lots of compliments at a black tie wedding.

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Other reviewers said this runs small but I found it true to size--I wore the 6R and usually wear a size 6. I was worried about showing too much cleavage but it covered everything I wanted it too (bust size 36B). The material is softer than I expected and the only structure in the gown comes from the boning through the bodice. I could have used a tummy/hip shaper, but ended up not having time to go purchase. But that is where the rusched design of the dress is very forgiving and flattering! It was still a bit long in front even with my 3" heels on, but when I called before ordering the stylist advised me to go with the regular size instead of the short/petite and I am glad she did. Was still able to dance without tripping and it looked right with my heels. I received compliments all night!

This dress was everything I could have hoped for! I got TONS of compliments that night.

Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Pros: - it's true to size. The dress fit perfectly. I got a 6L because I can't stand dresses that end up showing your shoes. This was slightly long, but not to the point where you'd trip on it. I just grabbed it when walking up or down stairs. - The fabric looks beautiful. The ruffle laid perfectly and the chiffon fabric made this dress very elegant. Can't say I have any Cons. I would not suggest wearing this dress if you don't really have hips though - I don't think it would hang the same on someone who wasn't curvy. Also, you can't have a really big chest in this either. I wear a C and wore a strapless but could have gone without. I had a couple dress issues with other dresses that I had chosen and the team at Rent the Runway went out of their way to overnight this lovely gown to my salon so that I would have it in time for the ball. Ended up being a great experience.

Fun summer wedding dress

Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Wore to a wedding. I loved the color, sweetheart neckline & ruffle detail. True to size, not the most forgiving fit but still quite comfortable. The corseted top felt a little tight on my large rib cage. The 6L skimmed the floor with 4inch heels. If you are <5'8" and/or planning to wear less high heels, I think the regular would be better.

Overall fit: True to Size

I rented this dress for a wedding and it was stunning! It's a little long for me...I'm about 5' 4" and wore 3 inch heels and it still a bit too long, I had to hold to up when walking up the stairs. I rented the P for a backup and that was too short. aside from the length, this dress tugs at every right spot and makes you look tall and slender. It's super comfy to move around in and the best part is that it doesn't fall down or slide down..a peeve of strapless dresses. Great dress and I highly recommend it!!!

I was unsure what size to order, still post pregnancy body here, so I looked up the size chart of the designer, took my measurements and decided to go with a 6R and ordered the 8R as my backup. The 6 fit perfect! The dress is long, so with 4 inch heels it still barely skimmed the floor but it looked nice.

I received so many compliments on this dress at the wedding. On FB, I received over 100 likes!

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The dress fit snuggly in the bodice, but I was surprised that even with my big bust, it could've been tighter in the chest area. It was a bit long and I was afraid that I would trip or get it caught in my heels, but surprisingly, it was easier to dance in it than it was to walk in! I am so happy I went with this dress and even happier that I chose to go to the studio in NYC (Varick location) to try it on. From the pictures online, this was not a dress I thought would look good on me and it wasn't on my list of choices. It looked so amazing on me that several friends told me I should buy it! I have another wedding coming up at the end of September and I'm doing it all again! I will never buy another dress for an event; I will go with Rent The Runway! What a find!!!

Very comfortable and flattering

Size worn: 10R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I typically wear an 8 at JCrew, but often designer dresses run small, so I almost always end up in a 10 from RTR, which was the case with this dress. I love how the dress is made to give some shape at the waist, because I thought that made it more flattering than some other dresses. The chiffon in the front hung longer than the underdress, so I had to pin it up a little, so it wouldn't drag in the front and trip me up, but it took me about 5 minutes to do that, and my husband said that it was not noticeable. Overall, I was very happy with this dress, and highly recommend.

Dress Fit well, I am tall so I picked the longer version of the dress. Wish I wore higher shoes (mine were about 3 1/2 inches) because when I would dance I would have to pick up the dress to not step on it. Other then that I loved it.

How sexy I felt in this dress at 7 months pregnant!

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I was looking for a form fitting dress that wasn't too tight. It's hard to find a dress for someone whose pregnant because if it's too loose you would have that is she or isn't she look. And I wanted to look like I was carrying! It was very comfortable and may have hit my rib a bit due to the top but it was wearable. The size 10 would have been more comfortable but it didn't really fit my top, it was too big. The 8 was better. I love the color and fit. I wore 4 inch heels and it was perfect for the height of the dress. I also wore a strapless bra but you could do without since the top is against your chest and there wouldn't be any spillage. This dress is perfect I would wear it if I wasn't pregnant. I also have to thank the salesperson (forgot her name) who helped me because I didn't even chose this dress. She chose it for me. I would have never thought I would like this style, I'm not a fluffy type of person but it made it more feminine.

I wore this to a black tie optional (but encouraged) wedding in Vail, Colorado. It was comfortable and fit perfectly. RTR makes the experience an easy one and I will definitely be renting again. My only complaint would be that the dress was a little long. I'm on the shorter side so this is usually a problem for me. I had to hold the dress up while I danced but otherwise it fit great!

The fit is excellent..a little difficult for us smaller busted girls to keep up ..but there is some pretty good boning. I am 5'3 and needed about a 4 inch heel because it is very long for my height. Received a 4 and a 2, 2 was tight around the middle and I weigh around 117 and have about a 36/37" hip. Overall a great choice for a night when I needed a red dress. Got a million compliments :) and that's what it's about right?

Perfect gown for an Old Hollywood look at vintage Halloween party

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
This dress is very fitted through the bodice and lets out at the hip which worked perfectly for my (slightly bottom heavy) hourglass figure. I chose to wear it with a bra but could have gone without for a look with less cleavage, but since I was channeling Jessica Rabbit for the night, I decided a little push up wouldn't hurt. I felt very beautiful and glamorous in this gown. Unforgettable dress for an unforgettable night!

My only issue with this dress, other than it being a bit long (I wasn't in my heels yet when the pic was taken, but with them on, I still had to hold it up when I walked) was that the bust fit strangely. I have fairly large boobs but I had to keep pulling my dress up. Maybe I just needed a better bra. Overall, though, even with those imperfections, it was still a hit with everybody! I will definitely use this sight again!
