This did nothing for my figure. It was comfy and fit well but it was not flattering on me. Once again I also think my torso is too long for rompers. Not sure it would have been comfortable to wear out. I would have had to readjust the entire time. I ended up not wearing either outfit that I rented.

"You look like a celeb"
This romper is amazing! It looks awesome with heels or wedges. It's also perfect for a date or night out on the town. The fit was ideal for my body shape because it hugged my curves in the right places. I received so many compliments on this outfit and would recommend it to anyone!

easy shopping experience, fast delivery, very easy to return!
The was a perfect outfit for a girls night out! Being new to Rent the Runway I was a little nervous about my choice. I wore this to my bachelorette party at a casino. I had so many compliments the entire night! I felt amazing! I was comfortable, was able to dance and move all night! The shorts were a perfect length the material was quality! I would totally were this again! The top did hang a little low, but was perfect for a sexy night out! A great choice for a good time!

Flirty, Fantastic, Fun!
I wore this jumper to an Elton John concert; it was perfect for the event. I thought the outfit was a blast to wear and I noticed several people checking it out. I was a little surprised how short it was on me, as I didn’t notice that in other RTR customer photos.

Fun and Flirty!
I loved this romper. I wore it to the debut performance of my best friends dance company in Denver. Incredibly comfortable and could be dressed up or down. The top is definitely low cut so I recommend either some double sided tape or a little cami. I got so many compliments. i would definitely rent this again!

Girls night out
This is an awesome romper! I wore it for a girls' dinner out just for fun! It was a tad hot (but our restaurant was not A/C on a hot night,so that didn't help) but I was able to wear a cami underneath since I couldn't figure out the safety pin situation other people had suggested. Goes great with nude pumps...awesome

The rental, delivery, and return process was easy. The romper came in ready to wear condition.
This romper is loose around the waist and just fit my torso. It seemed shorter on me than on anyone in the pictures that I looked at. I rolled up the sleeves and paired with 6" Fendi stilettos. I would absolutely rent this outfit again.

Legs, ladies?
I wore this romper to a Tom Petty concert. As others have written, the length is short. As long as you've been doing your lunges and squats, take a risk! It's worth it. You know it won't be like anyone else's dress!

I didn't want to spend too much on an outfit and didn't have much time to shop. RTR made it easy
Perfect outfit for a perfect night. I was working a red carpet event and received so many compliments. It was comfortable and fit perfectly. I ended up wearing a 4. It was a bit snug, but it was fine. I added the belt. I felt it makes the outfit more slimming and completes the whole style.

Looked great... Fit fell short
The outfit looked great and the material was soft but the fit fell short...literally. I'm 5'7" and the shorts were the right length on my leg but the "waist" wasn't low enough for me to wear them comfortably (aka they rode up). The top was a perfect size for my bust so if I had gone a size larger it would have been too big. Great for shorter people :)

Not flattering for me
I rented both the 4 and 6 of this style, thinking it would be cute and different for a night out with my husband but both sizes first arrived very wrinkled, and then when I tried them on, neither was flattering or fit well. I am short-waisted, so the style looked a bit dumpy on me. I could also tell it would be uncomfortable as every time I raised my arms, the waistline rose up as well. As other posters have said, the material is stiff - I think a silkier material would have helped the fit. Too bad, as the photo on the site looks adorable.

Cute, but difficult
Super cute, very flattering. A nuisance to get on and off, so go easy on the liquids. Very low cut, go for a low cut bra. Very heavy, almost a suit-like fabric.

Careful with the chest
I rented this romper for a party and I got so many compliments! I would recommend wearing a little bandau top under the romper because the chest area tends to open up and you can give people a show. It was really comfortable and it never hiked up in the back (some rompers can). I ended up wearing shear black nylons and platforms with it and people said it was very Kardashian-like. Would rent it again!

Cute but not for me
I rented this as a back-up outfit for a friend's bachelorette party. It was really cute and the fabric was nice, but I didn't end up wearing it for two reasons. One - it was just plain hot out and the fabric has some weight to it. Two - for whatever reason, the cut felt off to me. Maybe because it's a romper? Maybe it's just me? Either way, it felt oddly short through the torso and I think I would've been pulling at it all night. Super cute, just didn't work for me.

Nice quality
THis is a really nice quality crepe outfit.. on the thick side but I did wear it to a summer night time dinner/dance, and it was fine. The length is good.. not too short, not too long. It was a little large in the waist... I felt like there was simply too much material width wise. I had to tie the bow as tight as I couldl, but even then it just seemed a little bulky in the middle.

Perfect Birthday Outfit !
I rented this dress for my recent birthday. It was the perfect outfit to celebrate a night on the town. It runs pretty true to size but I am on the shorter side so I could have used a size smaller. I got so many compliments on the outfit. It was flattering, I wish I could have kept it forever !

I wore this around San Antonio and a trip to the zoo. Felt so great in it! The material is a little thick, which i felt looked even better on my body type. Loved this rental!

So cute! Great for a party night
I really like this outfit, very cute and a little different from the LBD. BUT...get fashion tape or a pin, as it cuts very low (or a low bra). Great for showing off legs.

Beautiful fabric, nice outfit- doesn't work well on all body types
I picked this romper because it seemed to be the perfect combo of sexy and classy from looking at the model. However, on my body, it looked a little childish- I have a petite figure and couldn't fill this out to maintain the "sexiness". The way the romper pulled was also a little odd on my figure- stretched in weird places. Still love RTR, but this wasn't the outfit for me!

Cute outfit, didn't fit
So, I will admit that when my normal size (10) was not available, I ordered an 8 and a 6 instead of what I should have done, which was go to a 12 and an 8. What others have said is true--you want to go down a size for the fact that it runs kind of big up top and it looks better closely fit. I was going to wear the 6, but a friend talked me out of it for the short length. The shorts are very short (you can tell in the picture, and I wasn't really surprised by the length). The worst part, though, is that the torso is very short. I'm 5'6", so I'm not super-tall, and I have long legs so I thought I would be able to get by with it, but it was cutting me extremely tightly in the shorts. I have a butt, so this could have factored in to things, but I was surprised with how disproportionate it seemed to be... I could have gone all the way down to a 4 in the top, but the bottoms were extremely small. That being said, my experience was pretty great... Love the free samples (particularly since I love Neutrogena anyway!), and the packaging was super cute. It makes me want to rent again... hopefully something that fits this time!

So bummed
I had to return this romper. I love the idea of the look and hoped that with my short torso it would blouse over a bit at the waist. Unfortunately it was small all over on me and especially short through the torso, completely unwearable, and I'm short!

Returned it.
Unfortunate fit. Rompers usually look really good on me. Way too big. The fabric was much too thick. I felt like I was a little girl wearing my dad's suit jacket with a play sash around it. Also, no amount of pulling could make the sash much tighter.

Sexy and comfortable!
This outfit was perfect for the Happy Endings wrap party! "Wow, you clean up good!" was what I kept hearing that night! The shorts were just the right length to show some leg and the neckline was fun but appropriate for being around work colleagues. I loved the sash that kept my waist cinched and feminine rather than saggy the way some rompers can. Paired with some leopard heels - it was the perfect party outfit!!

This definitely runs high in the inseam! The size 0 was fine, but I almost wish I had the size 2 to try on too. It was great for a night of dancing and painting the town red!

top is a little loose but you want your correct size becasue shorts run up very high.
This was a cut outfit for a party, it felt casual but is short so you can dressp with big heels and a necklace.

I normally wear a 10, but read comments that this run big. I ordered bot a 10 and 8 and wore the 8. If you are modest you will need a safety pin. The neck line goes pretty low.

Didn't end up wearing...
I rented a size 0 and 2 and the 0 was a little big. I was going to wear it to a bachelorette party but it's more formal, maybe for a work event or date would be better. I would have worn the size 0 and a little double-sided tape would have made the outfit fit. It's super cute but just didn't work for me.

Supremely comfy, perfectly dressed-down+dressed-up
I wore this for a choir performance with opaque black tights and flats with a big statement gold necklace and hair up in braids. The satin sash gives the piece the formality that lets you get away with essentially wearing shorts in a formal context! The neckline is very plunging. I wore with a black satin camisole for modesty's sake.

Perfect romper for dancing the night away in Vegas!
Fit was a little loose, which was good for dinner and dancing. Loved the satin bow, gave the structured romper a bit of flair. The top is pretty low cut, but I never had a "wardrobe malfunction" the whole night. With any romper, the biggest con is going to the bathroom - but the zipper and snap combo makes it pretty easy!

I reserved the 6 and 8 but the 6 was damaged. I was about to pick another style but I didn't like it so I wore the 8. It was very loose on me and I had to adjust the top quite a bit.
