This gorgeous dress was my second choice but it was perfect!!
It fit perfectly on my hourglass figure. The only downside is that it was too low cut for the baptism I attended. Gorgeous color!

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!

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.

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.

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 dress was amazing, i legit have sero complaints about it. I got so many compleiments all night!
This dress made be feel skinny and beautiful for the wedding i went to. I am usually a size 6 in jeans so i got a 4 and a 6 just in case and the 6 fir good but the 4 fit like a glove and i ended up going with the 4. It was a wedding in miami for my boyfriends cousin and while everyone else was wearing bland colors i really stoof out and made a splash and a great impression on the family!

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!

I wore this to a big presentation for in front of several partners at a large firm. It looked great!
It fits really nicely. However, the sleeves were a little big so it kept slipping off my shoulders. Some double-sided fashion tape does the trick! Otherwise, it's perfect! It's not too tight or revealing, perfect for an office affair

I really enjoyed the quick customer service with my purchase.
None of my bras would fit under the dress hidden from view even with the strap clips on the shoulders. I'm kinda busty and this dress made me look flat chested without a bra. The size 6 fit better on the upper portion of my body and didn't hang or make me look like I had huge shoulder pads but the but area was super tight. The size 8 was loose enough on the waist but the dress didn't hang right on my body. The dress is beautiful but its definitely for a taller person with a longer waist. The darts and seams didn't match up with the curves of my body and it felt like a sack. Both of my dresses had some damage to them as well. I ended up not wearing the dress to my event.

Amazing fabric and love the sleeve detail, it's a bit long!
I rented this for work and LOVED it. The fabric was sleek and flattering. The sleeve detail was unique and like nothing I'd ever worn before. This was a little long on my 5'4 frame but I think it was still fine. The color popped on air and made me feel very pretty. If I wore this out on the town I'd pair it with a bright necklace in a contrasting hue (maybe blue or purple). Overall a fantastic dress! Will certainly rent this again.

Stunning color
Dress was cute and a perfect match for the "Mad Men"-esque event I was attending. However, the chest was way too large. I tried an extra padded bra to try and fill out the top more, but felt too uncomfortable showing that much cleavage, along with a "normal" cut bra not being able to work without being shown. I also wasn't crazy about the stitching down the torso, but I'm sure for anyone else it would go unnoticed.

I needed a bright dress to wear to a big political event, and this did the trick.
I found the dress to run a big large around the middle. But all told, I got tons of compliments and definitely stood out. A great dress that I wish I owned... in a 4.

A great fund raiser.
The dress is beautiful, but if you are well endowed, the top is very, very low cut. The shoulders were too big, the top was low cut -- generally, unflattering on my figure.

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.

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.

Gorgeous color!!
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.

Very snug, great color and design
The dress is very orange in person but bright and a nice color (just be sure you want to wear orange if you rent). The tailoring of the dress is amazing, very high quality. I ended up not wearing it just because I am a 10 and the dress is skin tight and even with Spanx I felt like it showed too many bumps around my stomach. Would be cuter on a smaller person. :)

Very cute but ran small.
I normally wear a size 6 (and usually get a size 8 for backup for Rachel Roy, but unfortunately an 8 was not available) so I ordered the 6. It was a gamble, and I lost. The 6 was just too tight around the hips.

Cute, but would not recommend if you wear size 12
I rented this for an important business meeting. I usually fit well in a 12 in most designers, but this one felt like I was pushing the limit on the fabric. The dress was very tight and the neckline and sleeves layed oddly on my shoulders. Almost like the sleeves never felt like they stayed in the right place. The neckline was really low and even with a strapless bra, the tops of the strapless bra showed occasionally. Would not recommend renting if you usually wear a size 12 in anything.

I knew that I looked better than everyone else at the event!
I normally wear a 6, but probably should have sized up. I had to wear Spanx so that there were no panty lines or bulges. The fabric is slightly stretchy and form fitting.. On a positive note, I really loved the color. It was so beautiful! I can say that I had the most beautiful dress at the wedding (don't tell the bride).

I got this for graduation.
This dress was a beautiful color. However, the sleeves were too restraining and hard to move in. You can't lift up the arm or move them forward because of the capped sleeve. I got an extra size, but they were both the same on the sleeves.

lower cut than on model/roomy for D cups and up
If you are short or short waisted, the top will sit lower on your chest baring a lot of cleavage. It looked very demure in the pic, so I was going to wear it to my son's grad ceremony. His college colors are orange and black. Needless to say, too sexy - would have embarrassed him. Instead wore it to dinner party that night to celebrate his accomplishments. It runs large on top, so fit me perfectly. Wore spanx to smooth out lower half. It looked custom made, my husband loved it. Paired with nude platform sandals and simple gold jewelry.

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!!!

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.

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.

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.
