I received SO many complements on this dress. The fit was perfect and the gold elevated the style.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress to a wedding in Arizona last weekend. Though the material was a bit thick for the 100* weather, the fit was snug yet comfortable and the length was perfect. With the high neckline in front, I was thankful for the lower back to balance it out. The material is structured enough to go braless and maintains the darted full skirt. I wore my own belt (a thin black leather belt with a gold hardware clasp) to add a bit of my own style. I also splurged on gold drop earrings and a bracelet (and went without a necklace). The 2 fit me in the Soho store but the 4 was more comfortable - especially in the arm holes. I have a long, straight torso and this dress gave me a skinny waistline! I received an overabundance of complements and felt so pretty and regal. I would totally rent this dress again.

Formal and fun and very comfy.

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Small

I did a reading at my friend's wedding and wanted to be formal but still comfortable since I had to get up in front of 200 strangers. I'm busty but it was such a great combination of structured and comfortable that I didn't need to wear a bra. I have narrow hips and the full skirt perfectly balanced out my shoulders. It's perfect for top heavy gals. And it has pockets so I could dance all night and keep my phone nearby without sacrificing my wine glass!

New Years Eve + a wedding? Fantastically fun and fancy evening!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress fit like a dream for the most part. I have a smaller waist and a larger bottom, so the style worked with my shape beautifully. As other reviewers have mentioned, it runs a little snug. I ordered both a 10 (my normal size) and a 12 and the 12 was far too big to wear. The 10 worked just fine! I got a lot of compliments on the dress and many people asked if I had lost weight! Ha - major perk! :) This dress is perfect for a fun event like a NYE wedding or any other fancier party. You will get noticed!

Compliments all night!

Size worn: 6
Rented for: Wedding
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!!

Fabulous dress, excellent service! An extremely pleased first-time user!

I wore this dress to a large company banquet I planned -- it was perfect! I got the 14 and the 16 but wore the 14 -- it was a bit snug around the ribs but not terrible and I was afraid the 16 would make me look too poofy. Packing for delivery and returning was classy, clean and efficient! Rent the Runway saved me SO MUCH time and effort at a time when I was very professionally overwhelmed. I will absolutely take advantage of this service again this year. I received many compliments throughout the night and recommended this service to everyone!

Wore this to a holiday party & loved it! I'm almost always a 2 and I wore the 4. The 2 was too tight around the bust/waist area. It comes with a belt which is hard to see in the picture.

I selected this dress when my first pick had been returned too damaged, and I'm so happy I ended up with this one! I received compliments all night at the reception, and couldn't have felt more confident in it. Pockets were very convenient, material was light enough to stay comfortable dancing all night. Thank you Rent the Runway! Paired w/ Oscar de La Renta Noir Marks the Spot earrings.

Incredible Dress!!

Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I LOVED this dress and wish I could've kept it forever! It fit me like a glove. I read a number of people complain about it being a bit too tight in the shoulders/chest, but that was not the case for me. I have a very short torso and usually need to have straps brought up - this dress fit PERFECT as is, which is so rare! It was super high quality fabric, a stiff-but not uncomfortable material. Oh, and pockets for the win!

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)

Very comfortable to wear and I chose to go without a bra because the back is pretty low. Because of the fabric and the construction of the dress, the girls stayed right where they belonged! The pockets came in handy for Kleenex at the wedding ceremony. Lots of compliments. I wish I owned this dress!

A classic black dress with gold flair!

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress for a fundraiser at a private club where the dress code was cocktail attire. I received compliment after compliment! I am normally a size 0 or 2, In this dress, I needed a 0. It is a classic style. It fit me perfectly and made the most of my figure. It made my waist look small and the poofy-ness of the dress allowed it to cover any tummy bulge. Yes, its poofy but I personally think it is a very pretty and sophisticated look. Classy length for me . No shortening needed. The black and shiny gold went well together in the pattern. The metallic gold looked like large gold paint strokes. I wore black Ferragamo platform open toe pumps. Gold could have worked too. Same with accessories. I wouldn't mind owning this dress!!!

This dress was gorgeous! Perfect for a cocktail-esk gala

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
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!

So like some previous posters have said, it is tight on top; I thought that have me a better shape though so I was happy about that. Tight on top, but loose enough on the bottom so you can eat without guilt! If I could have bought this, I would have!

Wore for my senior prom

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size

It fit well, but I needed help getting the back zipped at the top and hooked. The dress was a little short- when I sat down it did very little to cover the chair which was a little uncomfortable. I got lots of compliments despite this not being THAT formal of a dress, which was really nice. This dress was not my first choice but it ended up working quite well

LOVE THIS DRESS!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I love this dress! i am considering ordering it again for a wedding in a few weeks. I ordered a 10 and it fit, although I think the 8 would have fit as well. There was some extra material up at the shoulders - this is a common problem for me since I'm only 5'4", but it was not a dealbreaker. There are belt loops, but the belt was missing. I ended up wearing it anyway without the belt. The only reason I'm giving the dress 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the missing belt.

I wore this dress to the NYC Foodbank "Can Do" Awards! The outfit was perfect with the earrings and clutch that I got from RTR as well. The dress I thought fit kinda snug at the top so I wore the size 4 for extra breathing room as to my usual 2. Anyone recognize this guy? This is Joe Morton aka.

There's no stretch to the fabric, so it was a bit tight in the bust area, but not uncomfortably so. Overall the 10 and the 12 fit very similarly on top, but the 12 had more fabric in the skirt area. I wore the 10 for that reason. It was a very fun and beautiful dress and a great first Rent the Runway experience! I can't wait to rent another dress in the future!

Loved this dress. Received so many compliments. If you are planning to wear and regular bra, it may prove a bit challenging in the back. I am a 34B and since the dress was thicker in material, I opted not to wear one and felt very supported. I would definitely rent this again. The gold streaks in the dress are all metallic and stunning. This has been my second experience with rent the runway.... and will most likely never buy another gown again. Well worth the money!

I received my first set of dresses (sizes 0 & 2) on a Thursday night (PST) and found out, neither size fit. My event was that Saturday and I panicked. I emailed their customer service asking to overnight 2 new sizes (4 & 6). On Friday, I called the customer service line and they told me they had received my email, that 2 new sizes were on their way to Seattle, and it was free of charge! The package arrived just in time for the event on Saturday and I looked good! Thank you, RTR for a wonderful dress and for your outstanding customer service.

I LOVED this dress! Wore it for a friend's winter engagement party. Fit perfectly, loved the included belt accessory, and wore simple stud earrings that wouldn't take away from all the gold shimmer this dress offered! Only downside is that it doesn't have bra strap holders, so I decided to go bra-less because the ribbing offers fine support for those of us with not much up top! Highly, highly recommend this dress, and can't wait to rent it again and again and again.

Overall fit: True to Size

This was a fabulous dress for a black tie wedding! I received so many complements! I usually wear a 4 and when I tried it on it seemed a bit snug but after a while of wearing it, it felt perfect. The material is thick so I wouldn't recommend it for a warm outdoor event. I was not too short so I felt comfortable wearing the dress in the church for the ceremony. The skirt portion of the dress is full so it was fancy and fun. I ended up not wearing the belt that came with it, and no one could tell. Also, the back is low enough to show some skin but I was still able to wear a bra without it showing. I would definitely rent this dress again! I highly recommend this dress!

I absolutely loved this dress. It fit perfectly and made me stand out--I received tons of compliments from other wedding guests. Many people also asked me where I got the dress. I was looking for something classy and comfortable for my friend's evening wedding at an art museum. The dress looked flawless, despite the fact that I was in a rush getting ready and completely forgot to wear the belt! I paired it with a pair of black closed-toed pumps and a chunky jewel statement necklace which seemed to complete the look. I would highly recommend renting this dress for a wedding or semi-formal/formal event!

Showstopper. So flattering.

One of my favorite RTR rentals ever. This was SO flattering; the waist hit at the thinnest part of my waist and the structure/flare was perfection. I would even feel comfortable wearing this at an office cocktail party, though the back is a teeny bit low. A word of caution: I am VERY small chested, and this was pretty snug around the bust. Size up if you've got assets.

The fit was absolutely true to size for me. I tried it on as soon as I received it and it fit like a glove. It fit nicely around the shoulders and was still quite comfortable to move around in around the waist area and the length was perfect. I am 5'3'' and it fell right above my knees. I received so many wonderful comments on this dress! It is quite a fun dress, especially when you have a new year's eve wedding to attend! :) And the best part, it has pockets!! :) Loved it!!! Wish I could have kept it longer! :)
