Loved it!
Now to start off, Spanx are a must in this dress! The neckline is quite flattering and works very well with a shorter or choker style necklace. The color was a perfect holiday party contrast to the typical little black dress.

Runs large. I am usually a 6 in Tahari, but the size 6 looked like I was swimming in it.
Nice design but order a size down.

Cute, but hugs your tummy
This is a beautiful color, but it is not very forgiving. It will show your bumps and curves whether or not you wear spanks. The 14 and 12 fit similarly. I was just hoping the 14 would be more forgiving. It wasn't. I still got lots of compliments. It is very flattering in the chest and arms.

Dress is beautiful on, very flattering
I wore the 10, and I am 5'8. Dress is very comfortable and very sophisticated. It was a tad tight across the chest, but I thought the 12 would be too loose. I love renting dresses!

The dress was appropriate and comfortable :)
Fit a little large, which worked fine, since I got a size down for my back-up dress. The dress hem hit at the knee, looked alright with pumps, would have looked frumpy with flats. I wore it with Spanx, since I was afraid the fabric would have shown some bumps and undie-lines, AND I was bloated :( . Top of the dress was a good fit on me. I was disappointed to find that the dress was different than pictured. 1. The back "collar" of the dress was not a "V-shape" as is pictured on the website, but more similar to the back of a typical shift dress or even t-shirt really. 2. The draped ruffle was the detail that sealed the deal for me when looking at the dresses on this site, but much to my dismay, the dress I received did not have the ruffle! That was a significant disappointment for me. Overall, I still liked the dress I received, but it didn't have any of the "wow" factor (the ruffle) that I wanted to have since I was renting a dress. If I wanted a so-so basic shift dress, I would have looked elsewhere and just bought a less expensive dress that I could also continue to wear. All in all, my experience was "eh." If I were at RTR, I'd ensure the item pictured is actually the same as the item sent out to customers.

Very beautiful dress. Received lots of compliments
Requested a size 8, but the dress was too big. The size 6 fit better and slightly snug by the hip/thigh area.

Great classic dress was a hit at my sister's wedding rehearsal dinner!
This dress is a great fit for girls who are tall with a bit more up top. Dress hugged in all of the right places and was very comfortable, a great pick!

Beautiful Dress but small in the bust area
Loved the color and look of the dress but I couldn't zip it up all the way. Was unable to wear it and scrambled for an alternate option. I am a true size 14 and this is the first time one of the outfilts from Rent the Runway did not fit at all....

This is a lovely dress
I got a lot of compliments on this dress. it was very flattering. The only drawback was it's length. I am 5'4" and it came below my knees.I would have preferred for it to hit my legs as shown in the picture of the model

I am 5'4. So I am glad to here where it fell to on your legs. Thank you..

This dress was a beautiful color and the fabric draped beautifully.
I rented this for a wedding of a professional acquaintance, and it was perfect. Very classy and conservative. The back was not as shown, however; it was a traditional zip-up sheath style in back, but it still looked very nice. I have reddish hair and pale skin, and the color was very flattering. I usually wear an 8, but the dress gaped around the arms and in the bust. The six fit me perfectly.

Beautiful dress, but slightly different than pictured.
This definitely runs true to size, maybe a bit on the larger size of true, but still true. I'm right between a 12 and a 14 and I sized up in order to accommodate my bust. One note - the dresses that I received are different than the one pictured. The one on the site has a V back with more draping hanging straight down. The one that I received had the typical high back of a sheath dress and does not have any additional draping. That was a little bit disappointing, but certainly does not change how well made and gorgeous the dress is. Great emerald green color, too.

Do you have a photo of you in the dress?
RachelOctober 23, 2012
Shelley - I don't! I wish I did. I really liked it.
