It wasn't as form-fitting as it looked on the model. I felt a little frumpy in it.

Love this dress...
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Wore this dress for a Southern wedding and received numerous compliments! The gold detail at the top, the bow at the waist, and lace overlay at the bottom all worked together to create a classy yet fabulous look. As Milly dresses tend to run a bit long, this dress hit me perfectly right above the knee. I paired this dress with white gold studs, black pumps and a black clutch; given the detail on this dress, simplicity is best when accessorizing. My only regret is wearing my hair down- thinking this would have been even more perfect with an up-do or side bun.

Very appropriate for a wedding or any semi-formal affair.
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This dress looked great. It is very nicely made and arrived in perfect condition. It was a tiny bit small but I still went with the smaller of the two sizes I got. It looked better in the 2. If I was buying it I would have gotten the 4 to be safe, but the great thing about RTW is you don't have to think about how long something is going to fit. Cons were that I couldn't dance that well in it due to the slim skirt. It was also quite itchy under my arms and the zipper is hard to zip.

The 6 also fit well, but the 4 was a perfect fit for me. The length was perfect, even when dancing. I could eat my dinner and not worry about feeling like I was stuffed into my dress. It was comfortable and classy. Wish I could have gotten a better picture! A clueless guy took it :)

Classy dress for a classy event!
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I ordered a size 8 and a size 10 (hoping to wear the 8) and when it arrived, I tried it on and the 8 fit like a glove! I received so many compliments all night. I have an hour glass figure and larger bust, so this dress really did compliment my shape. My sis n law even told me to "buy" the dress as it was such a perfect fit. I agree with some that the lace can be a bit rough feeling under your arm pit, but I didn't really realize that until the next day (it was a tad red from rubbing all night). This dress is gorgeous! Thanks RTR.

I was down out out with back pain and knew i had no time to shop before a corporate awards ceremony. I logged on to Rent The Runway, found a dress and the order was fast and simple. My order arrived professionally boxed and in garment bags the day before the event. Felt stunning last night. And today's return was slipped into the postage paid envelope and brought to the post office. Fast, easy, beautiful - no malls and no dry cleaning. You have a customer for LIFE. Thank you for such a great cyber fashion experience. Can't wait until next time. XXXOOO

I received this dress in a size 6 and 8, but wore the 8 for a little breathing and bust room. Pictures don't do this dress justice. It really is stunning! Reviews of "itchiness" had me concerned, but I wore this dress for 14 hours and didn't have any problem with that at all.

I wore this for a black tie event. I was afraid I'd seem underdressed, but it worked out great. I usually wear a 2, and that would have worked, but I liked the fit a little better with the 0. A little itchy under the arms, but bearable. Also, the lining under one of the arms poked out, but I was able to keep it in place with some of the tape RTR included. Overall-loved it!

The fit is true to size, except that larger sizes tend to assume an extremely large bust. I am an hourglass and there was a little too much material above the empire waste. Other than that, fit and looked great.

I rented this dress for a family Thanksgiving black tie party. I wore black tights and black pumps. I kept the jewelry minimal since the dress has very decorative lace, fabric and finishes. The fit was perfect, not tight, not loose. Just a nice, easy dress. My sister wore my backup dress and we actually ended up using the photos from that party for our family Christmas card!

I wore this dress to a friend's wedding and received many compliments. No one could believe that I rented a $405 dress for $50. :)
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Stats: 5'3" | 145lbs | 32F (DDDD). This beautiful Milly design was snug at the chest but fit perfectly every where else. I ordered both the 8 and the 10 but opted for the 8 because the 10 was a little too loose in the chest, resulting in an unattractive view of my bra. The dress hit at a perfect length, just at my knee. My only gripe, causing my rating to lack 1 star, is that the size 8 arrived with a broken zipper which I struggled to repair the night before.

I rented this dress to wear to the CG New Year's Reception at Fort Gordon. I loved it and felt wonderful in it. The fit was perfect. I am 5'4 125 with a large bust and this dress fit me perfectly. I always have to size up in dresses due my bust size. I would recommend this dress for a holiday party, wedding, or something along those lines.

I felt so elegant all night. I'm nearing 30, but people consistantly tell me how "cute" I am- which makes me feel like a 12 year old! It was so nice to have people talk to me, compliment me, and treat me like an adult.

This was my first rental from RTR and I loved it! I will definitely use them again. I got both a 4 and 6, but found the 4 to fit much better. I was having a NYE dinner at a very fancy restaurant and felt so elegant all evening. It is pretty tight in the mid-section, but I was still able to eat a 5 course meal without feeling like I was going to explode! I am just shy of 5'1" and you can see in the picture that it comes just below my knees. If your short like me and want something above the knee, this probably wouldn't be a good choice for you. I wanted the dress to be the focal piece so I pulled my hair back and the only jewelry I wore were diamond and pearl studs.

I wore this dress to my company's holiday party. I really wanted something that looked like it belonged with the holiday season but was conservative enough to wear around co-workers. This dress was a perfect compromise. I received compliments all night long. Overall, I would definitely recommend this dress if you're looking for something classy and chic. I found that this dress runs exactly true to size, and as such, I would recommend you get what you think your real size is then the next larger size you secretly hope you'll never have to wear. My real size fit me perfect and snug.

Would have been better for a wedding than a bachelorette party.
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I know I'm short, but this dress hit right at my knee and the bow at the waist made me feel a bit frumpy with such a long dress. The fabric is all beautiful, shimmery, even the black skirt. The waist and skirt fit well, but the top was big, and that is NEVER an issue for me. The sides were gaping any my bra was visible, even though I'm larger on top. Not what I expected from this dress. Would have made a great day-to-night dress for an afternoon/evening wedding with a cropped cardigan or cropped blazer and transition to reception/party dress.
