Ringing in 2012 in style!

Overall fit: True to Size

I rented this dress for dinner and a party on New Year's Eve. The material is much more beautiful in person than in the picture -- you can really see the detail. This was my first experience with and off-the-shoulder dress and it fit nicely, although the top was very fitted so bustier girls might want to size up (I'm a C-cup and was just able to zipper it up). Overall I was very happy with this rental!

I didn't want to send this dress back, it's so flattering and glamorous :)

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I absolutely adored this dress! The fit worked out great for me. I'm a C-cup and the top fit great, but I definitely didn't have any room to spare up there. Larger chested ladies should probably size-up for this dress. The fit is super flattering and completely camouflages the tummy/hip area which was perfect for me. The length was a couple inches above the knee, exactly where a cocktail dress should be. However, I will warn that this dress is a true tulip skirt so be sure and keep your legs crossed ;) Just sayin!

Gorgeous structured dress!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Phenomenal dress with a subtle pattern and a striking shape. I was shocked to feel the 4 fit so snugly in the chest when I put it on the first time with a strapless bra. I ended up not wearing a bra, as the dress has quite a bit of boning for just that purpose! Also, the dress did "give" a bit over the course of the evening, so I'm glad I went with the 4. It was perfect everywhere else!

When UPS delayed my original shipment of dresses, I contacted RTR less than 24 hours before my event. They sent me the exact dress that I wanted as well as this backup dress that I loved... and I got everything in time for the event. I felt great in this dress, and my husband thought I looked pretty hot!

This LBD is super cute. This was my backup dress, and I liked it better than the one I had been eyeing for months. This dress is pretty short and has a wrap-type tulip skirt. It is very flattering, but you have to make sure your legs are crossed when sitting! The fabric is really pretty, the subtile leopard print was fun and flirty, but still super classy. I think this dress would work well for girls that are busty (and don't want to show everything off) or smalled cheasted (because the 1 shoulder detail is distracting and interesting). If I had this dress in my closet I would definately wear it again!

Feeling fabulous in this dress!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I have a very tiny waist and big hips, so after reading the reviews about the forgiving tulip skirt, I decided to rent this for a wedding. I got the size 2 and 4 as a backup. The 2 fit very well, but I can see what everyone meant by the tight fit on the top. The skirt fit my wide hips well with plenty of room and I felt very comfortable in this dress. You do have to be a little careful when sitting as the skirt will try to open up, but not a big deal, in my opinion. Overall, I loved wearing this dress and can’t wait to try something else from RTR!

Beautiful, classy, unique, comfortable black dress!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress to a New Year's Eve wedding and it was perfect for the ocassion. I typically wear a size 10 in dresses and this dress fit like a glove. It's short enough to show off your legs but not too short. I wear a 36 C bra and the top fit well. The material is beautiful and I loved the unique animal print that was just enough, but not too much. The off-the-shoulder style is really classy and beautiful and the dress is overall very comfortable to wear, which is nice. Also, the way the dress is made is very flattering especially for "apple" women, which I am! It drapes nicely across your stomach which is great especially after enjoying a lot of wedding food ;). I highly recommend this dress and really enjoyed wearing it.

Rent the runway makes dressing for an event so much easier!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I picked the dress in a size 8 and 10. i usually wear 10. The 8 fit really nice but it was really tight around my rib cage chest area so I went with the 10 which was great. The only thing I would've changed about the 10 would be that the skirt part fit like the size 8 did...slightly slimmer in the hips. I loved that it could hide my problem area/belly bc it balloons a little in that area of the skirt. Overall i loved this dress and my RTR experience. This was my second option. The first dress was too short for my long legs, this on fell at just the right length for an evening wedding. Hoping to go to the showroom to try on selections for a fall wedding!

Edge up the little black dress!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this dress to a formal event with a red carpet. I got a lot of compliments on the asymmetrical shoulder, and although the leopard print was (perfectly) subtle, it added some fun edginess. I'm usually a 2 or 4, but rented the 4 based on other reviews, and it fit perfectly. I was nervous that it would give me an armpit wedgie, but it didn't at all. I paired it with RTR's Nyla Emerald Earrings by Kendra Scott, which looked gorgeous with the dress. I would highly recommend this one!

This dress was great. I ordered this as my back-up and didn't end up wearing it to my event, but I would order it again. The pattern on the dress is very subtle and classy. I ordered this in a 2 and had a difficult time zipping it (side zipper). I am a bit bigger in the bust and my ribs are large - I did end up getting it zipped in the end - I just needed a little extra help.

This dress was a bit big, I had recently lst a little weight so I think the 8 would have been better. I had to pin it to my bra. It was almost too short with me being 5'11". Liked the overall design tho.

Excellent dress, classy, chic, etc., very excited to wear, it runs true to size but a little snug on the bust, I am always a 6 and this one fits (as I have a small bust) but if you have larger I'd size up!

This dress was perfect for a rehearsal dinner. My only complaint was that I wish the waist was a little tighter and the dress was a little longer (but I am 5 ft 9). The print is pretty subtle but adds enough interest to make a LBD a little more fun. Great dress overall!

I have a small bust, so it was a little loose up top. For someone who normally doesn't wear lots of patterns and prints, I liked that this was very subtle.

While the dress was nice, the specific dress sent to me had been sent damaged. The corset boning was protruding out of the dress and stabbed me every time I took a breath. Besides that it was a very nice dress. I just wish I hadn't received it damaged.

MY FIRST RTR EXPERIENCE AND LOVED IT.

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
At first blush, I thought the dress looked simple. However, once I put it on, I immediately noticed how well the dress is made and how flattering it is! I ordered a back up size 10, but the 8 fit like a glove. Boning inside the dress kept everyting in place. I felt so chic and modern in the dress. I wore this to a formal event in March in Chicago, so wore it with black tights and awesome black patent platform pumps. So happy with my first (and definitely not last) RTR experience.

I actually rented another dress for my event and when it arrived it did no fit, I called RTR and they overnighted me this one. Amazing customer service! I rented a size 4 and 6. The size 6 fit better but was definitely tight zipping up in the bust area. The skirt hid my mommy tummy and I really felt very comfortable the whole night. I received a ton of compliments. The picture does not do the dress justice. It was a really great experience and I will definitely rent from them again and again.

This dress was so comfortable and the material was soft. I was able to the wear the size 4 with a little help from my husband zipping it up. (I had the size 6 for back-up) Once the dress was on, it fit perfectly. I received so many compliments during the night from my fellow classmates. I never once felt like I had to adjust anything! I would definitely rent this dress again, but would work on evening out my tan lines. :)

It was a great dress. I have no complaints. It fit true to size (which is always nice). I had a moderately formal wedding ceremony to attend, so I went for a black dress. I think the print spices it up a bit and adds some fun. The material was nice. I definitely got some complements on the dress. I wish I had a good picture to post, but I don't. But to all future women looking to rent this dress, I say do it!

This is a classic little black dress with a thick, textured material. It was a little too bulky for my taste but very flattering. I think it would be better in colder weather. I love one shoulder and Shoshanna is always true to size for me. I would rent it again for a different event.

Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this dress for a friend's wedding & what a wonderful experience. My dress arrived exactly when it was supposed to. The dress was clean,well packaged & wrinkle-free. As I am normally a size 6, I ordered the 6 and the 8 after reading the reviews that said the dress ran small. The reviews were spot-on. The 6 fit everywhere but the bust. I would definitely recommend ordering the size above. I wore the 8 & it fit perfect. The fabric of the dress was very high quality, sturdy & buttery soft. The wrap style made it very comfortable & hid my belly pouch nicely after eating. I will definitely be renting again.

This dress was so beautiful on the hanger! I wanted to love it, but it just didn't fit great. When I tried on the 6 the top was too big, especially around the bust and armholes. When I tried on the 4 the top part fit but then it was a bit too tight around the bottom for me.

Subtle print that won lots of compliments up close!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
The print was so cute, subtle from afar but up close I got so many compliments. I had to attend a Jungle Chic Gala, so the black leopard print was the perfect match! The fit was tight around the ribs, I wanted a 8 but it wasn't available. RTR had contacted me about the 8 being unavailable but I missed the emails so they sent me other size 8s but this print was so cute, I squeezed in! The only tight area was around the ribs, so it wasn't uncomfortable.
