I was in search of a dress that complimented my style and when I saw this dress I had to have it. The excitement of arriving home and the dress being on my doorstep two days before my event was awesome. Most importantly, trying on the dress (and it fitted) and then looking in the mirror and tears forming as I realized how beautiful I looked.
Tina C. Hines This sheath was the perfect attire for the launching of my business. The color was exactly what I was looking for and I loved the way the square neck accented my neckline. The shape of the dress contoured my body. All of my guests (and people who saw the photo) fell in love with the dress just like I did. Thank you Rent the Runway.

I rented this dress for a television appearance, and the color looked great on tv! It fit well, and didn't add any extra "pounds" for the camera. Thanks RTR!

Amazing color, flattering fit
I am very fair with red hair and I received TONS of compliments on the gorgeous tangerine shade of the dress. It's a beautiful rich orange and definitely turns heads. The vertical seaming and origami detail on the sleeves make this very flattering. I wore it to a special event for work and it was perfect -- made me stand out from the boring black-clad crowd, but was very appropriate for a daytime function. LOVE this!!!

Great color, strange neckline
The dress is beautiful. The orange is that perfect shade that looks good even on lighter, untanned skin. Strange neckline however so had to send it back. I'm full chested 36C but the top was too loose. The drop from the shoulder to the top of the dress was too long.

Extremely flattering
Wore this to an outdoor graduation ceremony with nude espadrille wedges. It fit great and I got a ton of compliments--in person, the color is more coral than orange, and looks great with a tan.

The color and fit of the dress!
I loved this dress!! I got lots and lots of compliments. The color is fantastic and the fit is wonderful. I have a small waist but athletic arms and legs. The fabric is sturdy but with a nice amount of stretch. I loved the sleeves and the length was perfect, I am petite and it came just past my knees. You won't regret this purchase! It's so fun!

Amazing!
This dress is absolutely amazing. If I could find it to purchase it, I'd do it in a heartbeat! The fit is fabulous--it runs true to size with great structure. I have broad shoulders, and loved that it gave them a little definition without added bulk. The color is quite vibrant--a beautiful orange-y red--and isn't for those looking to fly below the radar. I was a little worried that on my short frame, this dress would be too long, but with a platform heel, it fell perfectly at my knee. Very sexy, without giving too much away. I wore it to a bridal shower, but thought it would also transition perfectly from work to evening.

Great, conservative dress
Wore this dress to a wedding. The color is a little bright for my fair skin, so I neutralized it with an off-white blazer paired with a belt. It was a great combination and worked well.

So many compliments!
At a wedding where I knew only the bridge and groom (and my boyfriend, who was in the wedding party), I received so many compliments from the other guests about how gorgeous the dress was. It was a little big up top (I'm not very busty) so the shoulders felt a little loose, and the length was longer than I would've liked (going past my knees) but it was very comfy all day long. The length might be fine for others, I just have a long torso and really short legs (I'm more like 5'2.75" with a 29-30" jeans inseam). Did I mention all the compliments?? I just wish I had a real photo! (The one I've uploaded was where I was trying to decide which shoes to wear, so it's not a great shot, but you can see how long the dress was on me.) And maybe some RTR referral cards to hand out!

Stunning dress!
LOVED this dress. It was a gorgeous color, fabulous fit and very comfortable. You'll probably need double stick tape to hold your bra straps to the side, but other than that it's very comfortable. Received many compliments about how beautiful I looked. This was the only dress I've rented that I loved so much I would actually consider purchasing it.

Ehhhhh not so great
I rented this dress for one of my wedding showers. The picture made it look long enough (I'm almost 5'10) and conservative enough where I would feel appropriate for an afternoon shower. Unfortunately, when the dress arrived, it was much more "I'm trying to look hot on a date" than "I'm trying to look classy at my wedding shower." I unfortunately had to return it. The fabric was very thin, not at all what I expected, and the neckline cut was much wider and lower than it appeared in the picture. Really a big fan of Rachel Roy, but this dress just didn't do it for me.

Arrived right on time!
The color of this dress is beautiful, and would be flattering on any skin tone. The size 0 wasn't available unfortunately, but even if it was I think it would have been a bit too large - I had to wear a super-padded bra and two pairs of spanx to fill it out! I would have given this dress 5 stars were it not for the fact that the fabric wrinkled very quickly/easily.

Knockout dress
Loved the way this dress looked - I felt like I stepped of the Mad Men set. My only issue was it was a little too low cut for me. I didn't really notice that on the model photo but pretty sure everyone sitting across from me at dinner got an eyeful (whether they wanted it or not!).

Great dress. Neckline is a little revealing.
The neckline is lower than featured in this photo, especially if you're busty! Wanted this for a work event and it was inappropriate --- but it would be great for a cocktail party, etc.

This was my first time using RTR. The process could not have been any easier.
Dress fit was true size. It hugs the body, but there is plenty of stretch. You can wear a bra with straps, which is a bonus. Got a bunch of complements and loved the color.

Beautiful color and cut that flatters a large bust and a long waist! Perfect for dancing all night.
This is definitely a dress that looks better on than on the model. I have a large bust, a long waste and broad shoulders, and this dress was fabulous. The square neck is VERY flattering for a 34DD, and the A-line is very slimming through a long torso. I wore this for a fall (October) wedding, and it was absolutely perfect. The earrings came as a part of the Stylist Surprise, and I really liked them. I would not have picked them out myself, but they really complimented the dress and completed the look. The shoes were mine - nude pumps like Kate Middleton's.

Gorgeous, Eye Catching Dress
This dress will definitely turn heads. It's a gorgeous orange color and I wore it for a work gala the weekend before Halloween, so it was perfect in that respect. Unfortunately, it wasn't the best fit for me. I'm a true pear shape, and this dress really doesn't work very well. I was literally taped into the top so that people wouldn't be looking down my dress when I leaned over. Close coworkers commented that they thought the dress looked like it fit perfectly, but it didn't. Had I tried this on in a store with the thought of buying, I would never have purchased this dress. It was fun wearing it and it looked fine, but I was constantly worrying about the tape. If you're a pear, you'll probably feel more secure and comfortable in other dresses.

bold color is a refreshing change from the traditional red
The color was striking, but the dress was slightly off. First of all, the shape of the dress is, in my opinion, better suited to a heavier fabric but instead it's actually very light. I found the cut kind of boxy--the 6 was way too big up top, but the 4 (which fit well elsewhere) seemed to balloon out at the waist. I wore a skinny black belt which helped and because of the color I don't think the less than perfect fit was very noticeable, but it was still not my favorite dress.

Beautiful color just ill-fitting in the shoulders!
I loved the color of this RR dress that is what really drew me in to renting it BUT the shoulders were extremely large in both of the dresses I rented even with fashion tape, I still wasn't that comfortable with just wearing the dress without a shawl (BOO!). Probably would not rent again, sadly! :(

The service was great, as always.
The dress was well constructed and made of quality fabric. Very rich in color. The sizing ran a little big. I could have worn a 6, even though I regularly wear an 8 (rented a 10 a backup per suggestion). I am a B cup but I think the dress was a little big in the bust area. It would look great on C-D cups. Good experience overall. I will rent it again in a smaller size.

This was my back-up dress. I was able to get it on and it fit well on top, but it was VERY form fitting below the waist which wasn't appropriate for my event. Nevertheless, it was beautiful.

I loved this dress- the fit is flattering without showing too much skin. It was the perfect color for a summer wedding and the Erickson Beamon earrings were fab as well. I received so many compliments on both the dress and earrings.

Fit didn't work for my figure
I was very excited to try this dress after seeing all the great photos of fabulous, similarly-shaped ladies, but alas, the size 8 in this dress was somewhat tight in the bust and really, really lose in the shoulders. There was odd gaping where the material creates the square neckline, and even with tape, it looked large. I tried sizing up to the 10 to see if this might fix the issue, but while the bust fit better in that size, the waist/hips area was much too large, and the shoulders were still ill-fitting. I ended up buying a dress the day of the wedding. Lovely fabric and color, it just didn't fit me well!

Rachel Roy can do no wrong!
After renting a different Rachel Roy dress (the Good Karma Sheath) and falling in love with the way it fit and flattered my body type, I called RTR to change my dress for another upcoming rental to this Rachel Roy. I could not be happier with my gut check reaction. Her dresses are prefect for an hourglass shape. And just as the last dress I rented, while the 6 (my usual size) fit and looked fine, the 4 fit like a glove and really showed off how beautiful the dress was. The vibrant orange color was perfect for a summer wedding (it even earned a compliment from one of the female bartenders at the wedding), and the Kendra Scott Emerald earrings were a great color combination along with a gold bracelet and nude pumps. The length is also perfect and appropriate for a wedding. My only complaint is that I wish RTR carried even more Rachel Roy dresses!

Showstopper
I (deliberately) chose this dress for a huge business presentation in a room full of men in navy & charcoal suits. The details on the neckline and back were gorgeous. (See close up) The fit was perfect -- not too tight, not too loose. It was literally breathtaking, yet classic and totally business appropriate. No one missed me; everyone complimented me.
