Love this dress, but was a little big.
This dress is super cute, but it was a little too loose on me. I got a 0 because that is my usual size, but I probably should've gotten the 00. If the fit had been better, it would've been perfect!

Great fun dress
This dress was great for my friend's wedding at an art museum. The print is really interesting and the open back is a great detail. I have bigger hips, and the bottom of the dress definitely fits snuggly, so I wore the size 8 instead of the size 6. The dress is a little short and rides up a little when dancing, but it wasn't a big deal. Loved wearing this!

Firework Dress for the 4th
Fun dress for a July 4th wedding. Fit was tight but the thick fabric smooths everything out. I wore a nubra with it and had no problems. It was comfortable all evening!

Loved this dress!
I wore this dress for my sorority semi formal. It fit great and was very comfortable and flattering! The only bad this is that it is a tad short, so I wouldn't suggest this dress for anyone taller than 5'5". Overall a great rent though!

Fun and flirty!
I wore this to my fiance's graduation party in the southern heat in June. It was a standout dress for sure. Fun pattern on the front and flirty backless cut. Was tighter than I expected and rode up a bit when I walked. Definitely worth it though! Was tight enough on top to wear without a bra. Would rent again!

Perfect dress for a night out
This dress fit perfectly and was so comfortable!!! Went on a little getaway with my husband and this dress was gorgeous for a night out. It was short but I did not have any issues where the dress would fall as in other reviews. I would definitely rent this dress again!

Favorite dress I have rented!
I LOVE LOVE LOVED this dress! Probably my favorite dress I have rented! The colors are beautiful! This dress is very very sexy! And short, and the back is very open. If you are worried about it being too tight or too short size up! The material was great, very stretchy. It did ride up a little, but I didn't have any trouble dancing the night away! I would buy this dress or rent it again in an instant!

Very short
While I love the style and color of this dress, it was VERY short and if you have any sort of a booty... you can forget about wearing this and feeling comfortable. I tried to wear it with booty shorts to help feel less exposed. When sitting down I felt as if there was no coverage what so ever and I was quite self conscious of that. I think it it were longer, it would have been perfect.

"Work in Progress" for Halloween!
Thank you Rent the Runway for the rental and inspiration for one of my favorite Halloween costumes ever! I saw this idea on your site a few years ago and had wanted to recreate it ever since. Such a success. I felt pretty and uniquely costumed all night!

Great color and cut!
Loved the colors and cut of this dress! Perfect to feel unique at a wedding and not upstage the bride. It complimented my curves, but taller-proportioned ladies watch out. It is very short; I wore a long cardigan to protect my backside o_O

Awesome birthday outfit
I usually wear size 4. It fit me but was a little snug and since the dress is very short, I opted to wear size 6. You don't need a bra with backless feature and very nice lining. It was so fun! I dressed it down with taupe chunky and strappy heels and a jean jacket. I wore these great mystery surprise earrings -picked by stylist. I highly recommend but caution anyone with a fuller bottom (derrière) than me from wearing it. I don't think it would work or look classy.

The bride rode in on a unicorn, so this artful dress was a hit. :)
Fit well except my torso was too short and I had to pin the cap sleeves. Luckily there was a poof to the design of the sleeves so it was undetectable. I got lots of compliments. It runs on the short side so be prepared for that. The botom hem is weird from too many washings but only you will notice.

This dress was comfortable and easy to dance in, but it's definitely short! It also rides up a little.

I wore this for an Indian wedding and loved it. It's spunky! It's backlesss so you have to be careful with a strapless bra or a low bra cut but it was great!

Sexy fun party dress that was flattering and comfortable.
As the other reviews have mentioned, this dress is SHORT! It's not super noticeable while standing, but if you sit down, you have to be on top of it or else your undies will show. It has a bit of stretch so hugs your waist and is comfy. I couldn't get the hemline to do right. The material is not such that in can be ironed crisply so it was a little odd at the hem, but probably only noticeable to me. I wore one of those stick on nubras and it worked well. Lots of compliments all night. Fun to dance in. Hip and happening dress but I didn't feel like I looked like I was trying too hard to be young. A great alternative to something sparkly.

Hip area is a little tight but I'm fairly narrow so it was okay.

Love the color and back!
Generally a 6 but this one was a little too tight around the hips and thighs. The 8 fit my lower half better but was a little big up top. Very comfy though and easy to wear without a bra. Lots of compliments!

Short, but show-stopper!
I loved this dress. So many compliments all night long. I wore it with a low bun. It was definitely short though and tight in the chest. A bigger size would've been to big in the waist. I had to be very careful all night not to bend over even slightly. I would love to own this dress (I would probably buy the 6 and alter the middle if I ever bought it).

Perfect for Rainbow Night
Fit really well. Good for larger boobs. I ended up wearing a bathing suit as a bra since the back was really low. Luckily orange worked out well. True to size and good compliments all night. Wore this dancing

LOVED this dress! I got compliments all night. The fabric is really light and comfortable.
I wore this to a wedding and would recommend it to anyone! The fit was true to size and it was just long enough as I'm 5'2". The fabric was light and somewhat stretchy. Love everything about this dress- especially the open back!

This dress was wonderful! So many compliments!!
The dress was really comfortable! The open back was super fun and sexy. The colors were so vibrant! The dress would be short on the average person but perfect to me. It was snug on the hips but it wasn't a problem since the fabric had a little give to it. Loved everything about this dress!!

Fun dress!
Other reviews were spot on. Dress was super comfy material but very short, and it did ride up a lot! I had to pull it down all night. But it was still a fun dress and dry unique.

Such a standout dress!
Again, another great RTR dress. I can honestly say I have not had a bad rental yet! The user reviews are the most helpful in my opinion. This dress was short as others mentioned but I didn't feel self conscious about it. It was a little tight in my hips but that is where dresses are usually tight on me due to the size of my hips and thighs for being a normal size 4. I wore the fashion nipple covers since I didn't wear a bra due to the open back. It was a really great dress to wear with flats as I attended an outdoor wedding.

Cute dress beware it's short and backless
Loved the print! The dress is backless so had to wear sticky bra. I am 5ft and was short on me! Tall girls don't order. If you're petite would recommend, not best dress if you plan on dancing. I wore to show so I was fine but because it's backless doesn't stay on tight

Way too tight on me but the dress is killer!
So I've got kind of a pear-shaped thing going on, and if you do too, I'm gonna say skip out on this one. The design is gorgeous, but I ended up going with my second choice because of just how tight it is.

I wore this for a night out with my family in Vegas! This picture doesn't do the dress justice. The back is incredible! I wore simple shoes and jewelry because the print is so nice. Would highly recommend this dress!

SUPER SHORT!
Even after reading everyones reviews I still decided to give it a try and rent it even though I knew there was a high likelihood that it would be to short....I was super bummed when I tried it on and it was so short that it barely covered my butt. I have a super long torso so if you don't have that or a butt this dress could be a stand out. I so wish it would have worked for me.

.
The dress was a little short, so I opted for the next size up. The material is stretchy, so it forms to your body well.
