Perfect dress to dance the night away in!
Gorgeous dress with such a comfortable fit - it fit like a glove. Plenty of room in the chest for us well endowed ladies. LOVED that it had pockets!

Lovely dress. Great shape. Flattering. Much better in person!
I loved this dress. The skirt has a lot of body to it, which I always love, and the top fit great. I chose to wear a strapless bra because I couldn't quite get a regular bra to stay hidden under the straps. With a little tape or possibly on someone with broader shoulders (mine are pretty narrow), a regular bra might be workable. The only disappointing thing about this dress is that it's awesomeness is not fully captured in pictures. I am usually a 4 or sometimes a 2 on top. I found this dress fit pretty true to size, though it would've been interesting to try on a 2. I wore a 4 and also had a 6 sent based on other reviews. The 4 fit but definitely had a bit of wiggle room in the bodice. I'm 5'7" and the length was great. I have a pretty long torso, but the waist on this was still flattering, even though it's a bit high. As other reviewers experienced, neither of the dresses sent came with a belt. So maybe don't expect that. I thought it looked great without a belt though. Anyway, great dress, it really pops, and it's very comfortable. The pockets are also very functional. I had a clutch but had my phone in a pocket from time to time, and it didn't weigh down the skirt at all. I think this dress would be a safe (and great!) choice for a wide variety of body types and ages.

Compliments all night!
OMG this dress is everything. It fit so perfectly and is STUNNING in person. I wore it to a family wedding and received compliments all night. It's incredibly comfortable, easy (no special bras/panties needed!) and flattering as well, especially for hourglass or pear shapes. I rented size 4 and 6 and honestly couldn't tell the difference between the two. I went with the 6 because the clasp was broken on the 4. It went perfectly with the Slate and Willow necklace I rented. I wanted to keep it and wear it permanently. Can't wait to rent it again!!

Comfortable and beautiful but difficult to find a bra
This was a great dress and I got tons of complements! My only complaint is that I had to wear a strapless bra (or no bra) because the straps sit wide on the shoulders and it cuts in a lot in the front.

Great fit, just had a baby 6 months ago, so flattering and comfy. Received tons of compliments, I think I needed one size larger since the bust was tight (I'm about a C cup)

Perfect dress - with pockets!
I am in love with this dress, I wish I could keep it! I got this as a replacement for a dress that was damaged. So glad I did! The dress is super comfortable, and has pockets to keep my cell phone and lip balm close all night. I loved that this was a LBD but with a twist. I wasn't able to wear a regular bra with this, but a strapless worked just fine. Got so many compliments!

Overall, I really enjoyed this dress. I absolutely loved the fact that it had pockets and the length was just what I was looking for. My only concern was that the bust was a little tight. If you are a D or larger, you should consider going up a size.

Beautiful dress that arrived in pristine condition; runs large.
I wore this dress to my law firm holiday party and received many compliments. I have a small bust, but broad shoulders and still found that the dress ran large. I am a little heavy right now so floating towards a 10, instead of my usual size 8, but I found this 8 to be a bit loose and wished I'd ordered a 6, instead of an 10 as my "extra size".

This dress made me feel like Betty Draper- modest and elegant!
I typically run between an 8 and 10 but this dress definitely runs a bit large so size down. At first I didn't like the poof of the skirt but as I moved around the dress made me feel like a 1950s movie star. The top fit very well so I didn't have to wear a bra at all. The length of the skirt hit just at the knee which was perfect for a formal affair.

the bride was beautiful
This dress runs slightly large. The fabric is beautiful, and the print is quite bold. The picture is slightly deceiving as the skirt is VERY full. I did not wear this to the wedding as I felt the dress was too dark and bold for an afternoon wedding. This dress would be great for a party or New Year's Event.

Holiday Party
Wore this to a holiday party. Had to steam it before wearing. Dress hit just above my knee. The bodice was a bit large at the waist and the belt cinched in the extra material, which then made the front of the dress wrinkled. Would have preferred to have a smaller size and skip the belt. Overall was a cute dress but a little conservative for my taste. Would be great for a work holiday party.

Perfect holiday dress - I felt like an ornament!
This is the perfect holiday party dress - I wore it to my boyfriend's holiday party and received many compliments. The gold detail in the dress is a nice touch, without being too flashy/overwhelming. The skirt is definitely full, but again, not so much so that you look like a cupcake. I would definitely recommend this dress to anyone looking for a special, festive dress to wear around the holidays.

Beautiful & Fun dress
The dress was very pretty, and perfect for a company Christmas party. The material was nice. The only problem that I had was in the bust area. If you have a larger bust size, you should definitely think about sizing up for comfort. However, there was plenty of room in the hip area for a curvy girl. I did receive compliments on the dress.

Got so many compliments on this dress! Wore it to a rock and roll gala and was super comfy all nite
This was a size up for me and it made the top slightly too big but the waist totally breathable. And if you need a dress with pockets this is it - I couldn't believe I could actually stow my phone in them and the dress still looked perfect - no pulling! I'd rent this again in a heartbeat.

Gold accents made this a perfect Christmas dress.
This dress is beautiful and the gold shimmered under the Christmas lights. The cut/style made my sister exclaim, "you look like a 1950's housewife!" The flared skirt and cinched waist with the belt was very flattering. However, the top was tight for my 34DD chest; so I recommend going a size up if you have a big chest.

Perfect for holiday parties! Festive, fun, classic & quality dress!
Pros: The fabric was in great shape. The dress felt expensive, great quality. It was the perfect dress for a winter holiday party-the weight was heavy enough that I didn't have to wear a bra. Also, I really liked the belt that came with it. It didn't make the dress look cheap, but rather, it was very subtle and a great waist accent. The dress pouf looks exactly like the picture on the RTR website. I highly recommend this dress!!! Cons: Ran small, which is why I couldn't even wear a bra underneath! SIZE UP! RTR sent me two size 2 dresses because they accidentally sent me one without a belt. The size 2 dress that I didn't wear was MUCH smaller, so there was a large discrepancy in the same size! Specifically, to ladies with broad shoulders or large bust sizes, I would recommend going a size up in this dress. I have somewhat broad shoulders, which might account for the smaller fit.

The dress ran a little small but it fit great and was very comfortable. I didn't need any of the double-sided tape to hide my bra straps (I hate seeing bra straps).

Doesn't work for a large rib cage
I ordered the 4 and the 6 for a winter weekend in New York and I simply couldn't zip either one of them. The reviews made it seem like I could size down from my standard size 6 and that just wasn't the case. Anyone who has "swimmers shoulders" like I do should either size up or forgo this dress entirely.

I loved the neckline of this dress and the lower cut back! It is dramatic & sexy but still modest!
The arm openings are a little snug and it seemed to run a bit small bit fit great and pretty true to size! The pockets were also a huge plus!!

This dress was gorgeous! Perfect for a cocktail-esk gala
The big selling point of the dress was the fact that it covered my top half very nicely. I prefer to keep the ladies (boobs) more contained and this dress did the trick. It was stylish and classy and I felt awesome in it! I choose the smaller size (6) because it fit better in the waist than the larger size (8). That being said, it was a little tight in the arms and chest area and looking back I probably should have sized up. If you are bigger chested (I'm a 36DD), I recommend going up a size. I did love the coverage I got as well as the compliments. This dress really flatters just about anyone (especially redheads), so go rock it girls!

Fantastic customer service.
I didn't end up wearing this dress because the other one fit better, but this dress was lovely. The top was a bit tight - I usually wear a 4 but barely fit in the 6 in this dress because I have a larger rib cage. Otherwise gorgeous dress, very girly and flirty.

It was a beautiful evening.
I usually wear either a 10 or a 12, but ended up wearing the 14 for comfort. Length was perfect. Loved the pockets in this dress. I received a number of compliments....mostly from my husband. I enjoyed the dress so much that I have rented it again for another upcoming event...this one is black tie optional.

I felt beautiful in this dress
I recieved lots of compliments on this dress which I was not expecting. I am normally size 16 but needed the 18W since the bodice was a quite tight around the chest and back. Reading the other comments on the website really helped choose the right size. I will definately will Rent the Runaway again.

This dress is gorgeous, and the pic of the model doesn't do it justice! I felt so beautiful in it!
The fabric is really structured, which is nice for a girl my size. The skirt is a little bit fuller than in the pic, which is great for a party - it helped to create a more enhanced hour glass frame. I did find it a little snug in the boob area (I wear a 40E), but this dress is a winner and I will definitely rent it again! Definitely rent the necklace with it - they go so well together!

I was sadly unable to wear this dress, but so grateful for the backup RTR provided.
Sadly I was unable to wear this dress. The 12 was way too small for my chest but yet the 14 was way too big for my chest and shoulders - such that wearing the 14 looked awkward.

I REALLY wanted to wear this dress. Shame it was a "bit" too small in bust.
Too small- only in chest. If you are above a C cup and/or a size 10, no way.

Loved it!!!
Such a fun dress. Comfortable and great to dance in. Wore this for a November wedding. The RnR stylist in the SoHo store made me try it on because i would have NEVER picked it out. Within seconds of putting it on I didnt even try the rest of them on. I rented this one. LOVED. (I would say order one size up for rib cage, I'm a 32 bust and a size 4 normally and it was a little tight so I got the 6)

I decided to use RTR for the very first time for my friend's wedding at an art museum!
This dress fit me like a glove. In hindsight, I wish I had worn the second size (10) to the wedding for a bit more breathing room -My dad had to literally zip me into the 8. However, the 8 was still very comfortable overall. I loved everything about this dress - The colors, the length, the fabric, the matching belt - Everything was fabulous! I got so many compliments at the wedding, so much so that I wore it the very next day for church services. I recommended RTR at least 15 times over the course of the weekend! I am going to rent a dress for my boyfriend's company Christmas party in December, and I can't wait to find one! I am thrilled with RTR and everything they do! The price for this rental was affordable (So much cheaper than buying yet another cocktail dress), and I loved RTR's shipping process as well. I will continue to highly recommend RTR to everyone I know!

Runs much smaller than expected
I rented this because the other Theia dresses fit me so well, but not this one. Could barely fit in the chest.
