Perfect holiday dress!

Size worn: S
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress to a holiday party and it was perfect! I received so many compliments! It's super classy with some fun elements like a sheer top & lower cut back. I was worried about the length when I ordered it but it was perfect for a cocktail dress (I'm 5'5" and it was just above my knee) The best part- - it has POCKETS! :) It feels casual but so easy to dress up with accessories and fancy shoes. Order this, it will not disappoint!

Loved the pockets!

Size worn: XS
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
This dress was very comfortable to wear. I wore to host a company winter party and it was modest enough to be up in front of employees but still fun. The pockets were convenient for my phone and a lipstick. Only con for me was that the back was a scoop that went almost to my bra line, so I had to keep checking it to make sure it wasn't showing in the back. Also, I wore a black bra underneath because you can see whatever bra straps you wear and I didn't feel like wearing a strapless bra. I think it looked fine - you an kind of see it in the picture.

Great dress, just a little short on my 5'11" frame.

Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress fit very well and I loved the way that the lace looked as an overlay. It was very comfortable! It was a bit short, but not so much that I couldn't wear it to the wedding I attended. I drank and danced all evening and was comfortable the whole time!

Just an OK dress

Size worn: M
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
Well this dress certainly wasn't my favorite RTR dress, but it got the job done. It's pretty plain and forgettable, but it is flattering. Not too tight anywhere, flows freely on the bottom. A tad short - so if you are over 5'5'', I would maybe consider something else.

The dress is classic with a twist and very versatile! Got compliments about it all night.

Size worn: L
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is fairly short, so I wore the large to be more comfortable with the length. The dress is very forgiving, so the medium fit better aside from the length. You can go wrong with this--it was perfect for a fall wedding!

Appropriate and Cute

Size worn: S

I wore this to my white coat ceremony. The neck line and pattern made this dress appropriate for the occasion, while the back and length made it fun and special. However, the dress didn't hit at the smallest part of the waist. The dress was also a little large, but XS was too short for the occasion. Still, I would recommend this dress for any occasion where you want to combine casual professionalism with a little more fun.

Gave 4 stars only because the ruffle at the waist of this dress was kind of flattened which made the nude lining show at times. Very comfortable to move and eat in. Does run big as stated but the large was so comfy that I didn't even try the medium. Your bra strap will show through but that didn't bother me. The length was perfect for me so for someone taller it may be a bit on the short side. I would rent this dress again and would even purchase it!

This is my fourth rent the runway rental and the first one I didn't love. The dress was really loose and I wore small (usually I'm a dress size 4). It was definitely warm which was good because I wore it in fall. I didn't really get any compliments like with my previous rentals.

Fun and playful! Kept me warm for a fall wedding!

Size worn: S
Rented for: Wedding
This lovely number is a great twist on the LBD. It's got a really fun skirt and lacy details that make it more than just a basic black dress. I would recommend a strapless bra to hell hold the girls in, and if you are wavering on whether to size up of down, go with a smaller size. I got the small and medium and ended up wearing the small. It gave me better shape and was flattering. The sleeves are fitted but not too small or tight, same with the bodice. Overall a good rent, great for a wedding or party.

Another RTR win!!

Size worn: XS
Rented for: Other
The fit was perfect. I ordered the small and x-small as backup. Glad I did the small was loose and not flattering the XS was perfect! Ran a little shorter then I thought it would so I wore tights with it. Seeing how I attended a funeral it was still fashionable but conservative. Always a win with RTR!!

The waist sits high. So if you have a short torso like me it is in a weird spot. Other than that the dress was super comfortable and fit perfectly.

Simple and Classy

Size worn: L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I ordered the dress in a M and an L. I ended up wearing the L, mainly because of the length. The M fit, but was a bit short for my liking. I got tons of compliments on the dress. It is very simple, but elegant. You can really dress it up with jewelry. I chose to wear it with nude heels. My favorite feature - the pockets! I love dresses with pockets. I added a 2nd photo to show that when the flash is used in photos, you can really see how sheer that lining is. It isn't noticeable without flash, but just so you know. I would definitely rent this dress again.

Material is super soft and comfy. I rented the S and M and the S was true enough to size. This dress was a bit more junior than the review photos would suggest, but can be dressed up or down depending on occasion. Definitely worth the rent.

I wore this to my company holiday party and this dress was exactly what I was looking for: casual, comfortable and with pockets. I would absolutely rent again. The back of the dress is beautiful with a low cut and the pockets for me are such a plus. I would consider wearing a strapless bra though since the material is sheer. I tried both black and nude bras and both showed through the fabric.

Different LBD

Size worn: M

Comfortable and forgiving but a bit shorter than I'd like for a work function (it came almost mid thigh and I'm only 5'2"). The small was slightly tight around the chest/arms so I wore the M. Got compliments all night!

Fun dress for a Holiday office party!

Size worn: S
Rented for: Party
The dress was perfect for a holiday office party. The low back makes it a little more fun. The waist sits very high and isn't the most flattering look ever - but it was cute and I got compliments. Would probably be better for someone with a shorter torso. I was happy overall.

I wore this dress to an engagement party. It was dressy enough, but not too formal. I love any dress that has pockets and also allows me to feel comfortable, but not look sloppy.

Comfortable and Stunning

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is fantastic. It was so comfortable and I received a ton of complements. I am pretty tall so it was a little short but I wore black tights and black booties and it was perfect. The small fit well but because I am pretty busty the medium fit better in the bust area so I went with the medium and the medium felt a little longer. I would say if you have a similar body type to me get the small and medium.

I wore this dress for a New Year's Eve dinner. My boyfriend absolutely loved it! Because the dress has some give to it, it's incredibly comfortable and I didn't have to worry about how much delicious food made its way into my mouth! The waist hit a little bit higher than I would have liked, but it was still flattering. You can dress this up as much as you'd like or wear it casual as well. Thanks RTR for yet another great experience!

Comfortable, cute, and functional for NYE

Size worn: S
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I decided just a few days before NYE to rent this dress. I'd see it on a friend a few years ago and looked good on her, plus, I wanted something that i wouldn't be freezing in. This dress was very comfortable and I ended up wearing my backup size small instead of the medium - I'd definitely size down as some other reviewers have said as well. The dress was a little short but not too short. Wearing the small made me feel more secure with the low dipping back, otherwise it felt like the shoulders might fall down a bit. I also liked the way the bottom part hit my waist better on the small vs. the medium (I didn't see much difference in length between the 2 sizes). It's a little fluffy on the bottom so you don't really need spanx, and the pockets are great - I didn't have to bring a purse. Since the dress is short, it also looks okay to wear flats. The dress is fairly simply so you can dress it up with a chunky necklace. I'd rent it again, maybe for a fall or winter wedding.

Great dress & so comfortable!!

Size worn: L

Although I didn't end up wearing this dress out (I was in New Orleans for the Sugar Bowl and we all opted for casual Ohio State gear instead) it was super comfortable and could be dressed up or down depending on the event. The pockets were an added bonus, as well. I feel that it ran a little big in the chest (despite being a 36D) and also a little large in the stomach, but I still would have worn the large because it was a little too short. Great dress and super comfortable overall! Recommended.

I rented this dress for NYE. It was overall a really comfortable easy to wear dress. It cinched at the waist with a full skirt and having the sleeves was great for cold weather. I paired it with a necklace from RTR and some black wedges. It isn't an overly exciting dress, but it was cute and was easy to dress up with accessories!

Comfortable, cute, conservative dress for company holiday party.

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for our company's holiday party. I wanted a more conservative dress that didn't show cleavage. As the other reviews state, the dress runs a little big but I wanted to wear the medium as the small was tighter and shorter. The fabric was very comfortable and I like the 3/4 sleeves and lower back. It is black so it is easy to dress it up with jewelry. The dress is a little shorter than I would have liked as I am tall but since I wore tights I felt fine. I definitely recommend this dress!

So cute, flattering and comfortable

Size worn: XS
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
Wearing this dress was like wearing a comfy t-shirt. It has just the right amount of the stretch and the lace parts aren't itchy at all. I rented it for an outdoor fall wedding that ended up being FREAKING FREEZING, but I doubled up on tights and layered a leather jacket over it. The skirt was short enough to be cute without being too showy, and the whole silhouette was super flattering. I ended up buying it when RTR had their stock sale and wore it to another wedding this past winter, where I got a ton of compliments.
