Perfect Cocktail Party Dress
I LOVED this dress. I thought it was going to be a bit too informal for my black-tie event since the length was pretty short on me (I'm 5'3"), but it turned out great. I paired it with some gold shimmery tights and it looked awesome. The fit was perfect. Plush it was comfortable to wear...not a high-maintenance dress like the back up I ordered which had tons of sequins.

All of the compliments!
This dress really does fit pretty true to size, it ran a little bit large on me though. It wasn't too short, got TONS of compliments all night long on it! The gold material underneath has a subtle shine to it, it's absolutely perfect with the black lace on top, especially for holiday parties! Loved this dress, didn't want to return it...I would definitely recommend it!

Adorable Dress!!
I loved this dress and got so many compliments while wearing it. i ordered a 10 and a 12, since i normally wear a 10( big hips) i had a hard time getting the 10 on over my shoulders since it's fitted in the waist. and the 12 was a smidge too big in the chest but i made it work and it was a knockout!

Great Dress
First time renter and totally impressed with the service and items. Arrived in great condition. I am generally an 8 and it ran true to size. As others mentioned it is short (especially at 5'10). I was going to wear black nylons but ended up just putting on heels and I felt great the whole evening. For a business event I would wear hose. Dress is classy/conservative but has a fun flair with the design, shimmer and length.

Got so many compliments! I felt like a celeb :-)
I am pretty petite with a somewhat athletic body. I ordered the 4 and the 6 because the description said to go a size up in the extra size. The 4 fit like a glove. I wore this to a charity gala for work and I got lots of compliments. Oh, I also used a black ribbon from another dress and tied that around the waist line.

I wore this fantastic dress to a wedding and absolutely loved it, I received many compliments! The sizing ran a little small, making me go up a couple sizes bigger than my true size. But it was totally worth it! Definitely going to being using this website again!

Wore this to my son's Bar Mitzvah and got compliments all night.
Love this dress. Ordered the 4 and 6. The 4 fit, but was a bit tighter through the hips, so went with the 6. It had a little room on top, but was fine. As short as I am, it still hit well above my knees. I wore black net hose like the model and got tons of compliments! (Not bad for an old lady!)

I didn't end up wearing htis dress mostly because of the hemline. I was going to a wedding and when I sat down, it seemed a bit short. Standing, it was fine and actually longer in the back than front which is good for girls with a behind. The material and quality was great. It would be find for an event or party for sure.

Unique, comfortable, stylish dress. Received a ton of compliments!
This was the first dress I rented from RTR. I absolutely loved the service & the dress! I normally wear a 2 but got the 0 for a back-up. Thank goodness! The 2 was too wide under the arms. The 0 fit perfect! I rented this dress for a wedding. It is very short & tight but still easy to dance in. It's a gorgeous dress! Comfortable, feminine, pretty & sexy.

I loved this dress. It doesn't look as great in photos as it does in person so I ended up wearing a different rental dress to the wedding I got this for. I did get to wear it out to dinner the next night. It's a short dress, but not too short. It also made my hips look wide, but again I loved it and got many compliments.

This dress had the strangest fit, very narrow and tight through the hips, but the bust area was HUGE! I don't consider myself to have big hips, but i could barely squeeze the dress over my hips. Then, I have a fairly small bust so the fabric bunched in the front and the back and because the hips were so tight I couldn't pull it down so that the top wasn't so baggy. The fabric has ZERO stretch whatsoever. So unless you are extremely thin with large boobs, don't rent this dress. The fabric/dress itself was gorgeous though!

My future father in law told me I needed to own this dress, he loved it so much!
Great dress.I wore it to a fall wedding. A little short on my tall frame but I wore opaque black tights underneath and that made it a bit more conservative. Got a ton of compliments, wore it all day, and was very comfortable. I would highly recommend renting this one.

This dress was a knockout. Very comfy but also hugged the curves. Some reivews mentioned the fabric was scrathy, but I think the dress has been cleaned a numer of times and the fabric is now pretty soft. I was a little worried about the length but at 5'4" it was just a few inches aove the knee. I got tons of compliments at the wedding I attended. Only thing, it was a little snug in the ribcage (I wore size 4) - It's a very stylisj, contemporary dress.

All the compliments and wearing a beautiful, unique dress that didn't break the bank!
This dress is gorgeous and I highly recommend it. I rented it for a charity poker tournament that was black-tie optional and I was perfectly dressed. (I rented a size 4, and I am an A cup) A few things to note: 1. This dress used to come with a black bow belt, as you can see in the picture now, the bow is gone. This is because RTR kept losing the belt. The dress looks like a matronly shift without the belt so I recommend going to Michael's and buying some black ribbon to tie around your waist. (This is what I did and it made the dress.) 2. The dress is not short at all. I'm 5'5'' and it hit mid-thigh and was perfectly appropriate. Although, if it was winter you could wear tights or hose and look great. 3. I have a small bust, so the neckline was a little loose, but nothing noticeable. 4. I recommend a red clutch with the dress as a pop and subtle accessories.

Great dress, but run tight through the chest. I wasn't able to zip it up the last 3 inches, even though the smaller size fit through the hips and waist. It is short.

This is a pretty dress for the right person, but not for me - probably because it was a little young for me and didn't suit my figure. The smaller size looked a little too small and short for me and the larger size was too roomy and a bit dumpy on me. I think it was more that it didn't suit my body because it is a very pretty, well made dress.

I was pretty happy with my first RTR experience renting this Milly dress. I appreciated getting two dress sizes, because the bigger size fit me better. I had to use the smaller size's bow belt, though, because the belt that came with my size was too loose. The dress had all the marks of a higher end garment (underlining, nicer materials, didn't wrinkle, good quality zippers/fasteners, etc.) I got compliments on the dress and it was very appropriate for the occasion. The only bummer is that the smaller size version of this dress arrived smelling faintly of cigarette smoke. I wish RTR will take all smokey smelling dresses out of rotation. If I rent again and continue to smell smoke on the garments, I probably won't rent anymore.

Loved this dress! I got so many compliments. I liked it a million times better in person. The gold is not flashy -- it is just enough and very elegant. Definitely flattering, but a bit short for me (many dresses are because I'm tall). I wore it in the winter with black opaque stockings, which helped me to be less self conscious.

I loved this dress! I wore it to a wedding and got lots of compliments on it. The bow sash is way too big to stay on the waist, so I wore the dress without it, which worked fine. Highly recommend!

Cute dress and would have been perfect for my event but it was too small and tight through the hips. I'm very short and I found the dress was too! Had I been 4-5 inches taller it would have been very attention-getting, but not in a good way.

I recently wore this dress to a wedding. It was a great choice because it is still a winter dress, however because it's sleeveless it kept me cool. (I think late winter dresses are hard to dress for!) The dress fit really well. This was my first rent the runway experience and I was nervous because I have a big bust (34D) and I am small in the waist. I rented the 4 and the 6, but the 4 fit perfectly! Great dress for busty girls who want to minimize their chest. The dress is very elegant and I received a lot of compliments on the dress. I chose not to wear the belt because it was a little big. The dress is a bit short so be careful getting out of vehicles and sitting. I will definitely rent again!

LOVED this dress. Wore it to a company Christmas party with opaque black tights. Usually I wear a 6 and that would have been fine, but we were dancing too so I wore the 8 so that I'd have a little more room to move around. Got lots of compliments!

This was my first RTR dress. I usually wear a size 4 but I had to go with one size up because it was a little snug on the hip. Since the top is covered, you couldn't tell it was a little loose on top. I wore it at at a birthday party and I have never gotten so many compliments in my life. I felt so classy and sexy at the same time. It was the perfect dress and I would rent it again.

I am almost always a 2 in everything, but I have dresses from Milly that range from 0 - 4. I was a perfect 2 in this dress. With my height, I would not say that it was too short. While it was flirty and the perfect dress for a special event or wedding, the cut was too conservative for the cocktail-attire event I was attending and almost reminded me of a dress I would wear if I still lived in the South or even something my mom would wear if it were a few inches shorter (though, in all fairness, Mom does wear a lot of Milly). Still very cute, though. Also, the picture made me think that the dress was made of gold sequins, but in actually it's more of a tweed material.
