The beautiful color makes this dress a head turner no matter what size you're wearing. I rented a Kate Spade necklace that went perfectly and truly felt like a million bucks! Would rent this dress again in a heartbeat!

Gorgeous, unique and fashion-forward dress!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The 2 fit like a 2 and I wear a 0 normally - so this dress was a tad too big. However, it was worth it being a little loose for all the compliments I've received on it. I went to a party in Boston with a lot of celebrities and "big names." I fit right in!! Great dress. That bow in front is the perfect asset to an otherwise normal looking dress; it gets attention without being in the way. Pretty red as well. I think it would go with most skin tones.

Very nice, fashion forward dress

Size worn: 4
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress overall fit well, the fabric is flexible and I thought it made the dress look not as nice as I thought. I never wear red so I was kind of jaded but did end up loving the dress and the bow accent.

I loved the look and feel of this dress.

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The strings that were attached to the inside breast area of the dress kept peeking out. I had to continually push them down and had to adjust the front of the dress many times throughout the night. It was quite frustrating but I truly loved the look of the dress so I dealt with it. I would highly recommend removing all strings from the front of all strapless dresses. Thanks

Gorgeous Dress!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was absolutely stunning. I got so many compliments on it. It runs a bit large as I usually wear a 0 in dresses and the 2 fit very well (makes sense I guess sense it isn't offered in a 0). I wore it to a gala and thought it really stood out as most women were wearing black. This was my first time using renttherunway and I will definitely be doing it again!

Firstly so sorry for the bad photo! The great thing is that this photo was the worst part of my experience - everything else was flawless, timely, and overall wonderful! The dress fit perfectly (it was definitely true to size for me, even a little roomy!) and the color was fantastic. I'm fairly short (5'2") so the dress was basically below my knees, but I was fine with that. Would recommend this company to anyone!

Sassy Red Dress!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this dress for a formal NYE party and it was a total hit. My normal dress size is 8 however the 6 fit perfectly. The dress has some stretch in it so it was comfortable to wear for hours and the detail in the middle is great tummy concealer. I would highly recommend this dress for any type of cocktail or formal event!

Super fun Party dress!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The dress is great quality with a liner. I have a very athletic upper body and broad back so an 8 worked perfectly even though my body tends to be a 6. The bow across the front hid anything that I was self conscious about. Easy to wear a strapless bra too. The only things is that when I walked the fabric rose up a little around my hips but that was minor. Great dress and easy to wear!

Backup dress for a graduation- I did not wear

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I ordered the size 2 (I think the smallest option) and I usually wear a 0/2. This was a gorgeous dress and I loved the big bow in the front..... so feminine! I ordered this dress as a backup and did not choose this one because it was too big on me from the waist up. I would still consider renting this for a holiday party if I was prepared with better undergarments or dress tape.

Beautiful dress! Loved it!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress fit perfectly, and I stood out just enough. I wore it to my boyfriend's brother's wedding, so I wanted to look classy and well dressed. My only complaint is that it was a bit tight in my chest area, but I am a 36D. I wasn't able to wear a bra with the dress, but it's structured so it kept the girls up all night! Even better, it was very comfortable to dance in. Would definitely recommend this dress.

LOVE! Hides the belly! Makes me look more stylish than I really am! Hanger straps were annoying.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Rarely do strapless dresses work with bigger bust but this one really does! Super slimming and disguised my muffin top. Stretchy material made for really comfortable evening (both sitting at dinner and moving on the dance floor). Only con: The hanger straps are black and obvious -- I was constantly tucking them in. I will undoubtedly rent this dress again in the future! Don't mess with the bow, its supposed to poof up like that.

Cute dress, just not for me.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I chose to wear this to a Mixer & Elixir event that we have at our Science Museum. It was a very cute dress. I took quite a bit of pix, but unfortunately I didn’t find many of them to be very flattering. The full frontal and side pictures added an extra poof in the stomach area because of the bow, and I didn’t really need help in that area. All around this is a beautiful dress and is true to size. I just didn’t really know how to pose in it and therefore felt slightly awkward in it.

Perfect four outdoor wedding

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Fits true to size. Mildly stretchy at the top. Recommended with strapless bra, however it is visible in the back if you move around a lot. No pockets. 5'1'' and size 2 came to my knees. Probably could have worn a 0 as the bust is roomy (I'm 34-D). Found it to be flattering and was comfortable to wear for over 8 hours.

Really loved this. It was different and kind of edgy but still felt really classic. I got so many compliments on it. I wore it to my cousin's wedding and was really happy with it being in all the family pics. The red really pops, too. It's a bright red, like in the picture, and really stood out.

Dress for Delta Theta Sigma Event - I have to wear red and this dress got lots of compliments!

Size worn: 12

I am usually a street size 10, but I went up one size in this dress since it is form-fitting. It gave me just the extra amount of room to feel comfortable. Overall, I loved the fit of the dress and I got a ton of compliments. I would definitely rent this dress for another formal occasion. Love!

This was the perfect dress for my black tie optional event!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I absolutely loved this dress! The overall fit was pretty true to size. I was a little worried that the size 8 would be too small but it actually worked out because the top was a little too big for my bust area. To fix that problem I simply just used double sided tape. I would definitely recommend this dress for a cocktail event!

Fun, comfy red dress.

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this dress to my rehearsal dinner. It fit perfect, had a little stretch, a nice red color and the bow was both flattering and fun. I actually sized down to make it a little more snug and sexy, the 10 was not coming in at the waist as much as it looked like it would. The material is not nice though. The dress did not look like an expensive dress because of it. It was a good thing my rehearsal dinner was casual (jeans and pizza casual) or it wouldn't have worked.

Overall fit: True to Size

The only thing I didn't like about this dress was that it kept rotating while I was dancing. I'm not sure if it would have been different were it not for my spanx underneath. The fabric was so similar to the slip under the dress that I think they were getting tangled. I was constantly fixing my dress to the front. I wore it for a holiday party with a black jacket and black tights and it was the perfect look. Definitely would recommend this dress, just be careful of your underpinnings!

Cute, comfortable dress in a beautiful bright red. The fabric was forgiving and comfortable, and the bow made a great statement (and helps hide your belly). I really liked this dress and it worked well for the occasion, although I definitely don't think it was a WOW dress.

Lady in Red!!!!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
Overall, this was a really great dress. I wish it came in a size "0" and that would have probably made it a perfect dress! I have a rather large bust in comparison to my smaller frame so I had to literally tape myself in the dress to keep it in place and keep it from sliding down. I received tons of compliments and felt very pretty in it all night long! This dress has the perfect amount of sass and class!
