Fit like a glove but super comfy! Very forgiving!

This dress was very comfortable and VERY forgiving around my midsection. The top is low cut so there was more cleavage showing than I was used to. Also someone with a bigger chest would prob fill out the top more. Very happy with this dress for Saturday night wedding. Lots of compliments. Can wear a regular bra too which is a plus!

Very comfortable to wear. I am 5'9 and wore 3 inch heals and it was perfect in length.

The dress is long if you are not tall. It has an underskirt that really makes it comfortable. No worries about spanx or slips. Just pure comfort. I loved it and got lots of compliments

Beautiful dress!

First of all, this dress is very forgiving! It was beautiful and the layers of the ruffles were subtle and camouflaging. I received so many compliments on this dress. I wore it to a formal wedding. I was able to wear flats because it went to the floor but didn't run long. Loved it!

Beautiful, flattering dress was perfect for a black tie wedding

The dress was very flattering and the perfect length. If you have a large bust, you may want fashion tape

This was a great dress for the occasion it fit great and I loved it

I ordered this dress as my back up size and it fit better than the original size that I had ordered. It was perfect length fit great around the bus and was very forgiving with all of my curves. It was very comfortable and I felt absolutely beautiful wearing it. I would recommend this dress for any plus size woman who needs to attend a formal event and wants to look and feel great

Awesome experience!

I wore this dress to a Gala 5 days after having my 4th child. It was perfect for my still pregnant looking body. It was definitely baby bump/large belly friendly. It doesnt have much stretch but it just happens to be roomy in that area. The chest area was a bit too open for me so I opted to wear a black tank top underneath. It was extremely comfortable and I was given many compliments through out the night. The cut of the ruffles hides the belly area really well, and the eye is naturally drawn to the chest. I normally wear a 16, but went up since I had a baby and I am glad I did. So if you a larger belly I would go up a size. Also you do need to be full chested to wear this. I currently am in a 42F, and it would have shown more than I was comfortable with. I would absolutely rent again!

Beautiful dress, easy to wear, love the details in top and ruffles of bottom

Love the ruffles as they covered extra cushion in the belly for me. I used the buttons to wear the sleeves a different way and loved the new look. Sexy yet elegant look. Recommend!

This company is amazing! Easy to rent and great customer service!

This dress is so flattering! I could have wore a smaller size so I suggest renting your size and one smaller size just in case! It's free to get a second size, so easy! Received many compliments! Look forward to renting from them in the future!!

Black tie wedding

This was a replacement for a rental that ran too small and couldn't be worn. They sent me an email with a link to all available dresses and overnighted it to me. Amazing customer service!! This dress was fabulous. It was comfortable and so flattering. I felt like a million bucks. The top gaped a little when i turned while seated, fashion tape would have been a good idea. You can wear a real bra with it, which is always a huge plus. No spanx, etc needed. I'm actually really happy the initial dress didn't work out, because this one was perfect.

lovely fit, wear the right undergarment as when you sit down it gives you definite cleavage. Very flattering and light weight. The ruffles are beautiful on the gown. Very comfortable. I had to wear heels

After gaining way more pounds than I'd like to admit I wasn't sure I'd find any dress as flattering as this was. It was simply gorgeous!! I felt like a princess and enjoyed my night at Hamilton!

Classy & comfortable

I rented this dress for a wedding. I was looking for something that flattered my bust and wasn't tight in the waist. This dress was very comfortable and fit well. I'll also add I'm 6 months pregnant so this worked well for that. My only complaint would be the way the layers laid just under the bust. They had a tendency to flip up. Unfortunately my hair didn't hold up as well as the dress did this night.

Best dress I've rented to date...

I am large up top, large in arms and hips and waist are practically the same size; but this dress made me feel beautiful, proportionate, and confident. This dress was very comfortable and just hit the floor with my short 5'1" height. I would rent this again. I felt like a million bucks

Comfortable and gorgeous!

I rented both the 18 and the 20, and could have worn either. I had more room to move in the 20, so I chose tp wear that one. It was super comfortable, and you can wear a regular bra with this dress!

This was my first time using RTR and I was nervous. From ordering to retuning, fantastic experience

So comfortable with just enough stretch. Probably one of the best dresses I've worn. I'm 5'5 and the regular length was too short. I wore the longer length with heels and still had to hold the dress when walking. I received a ton of compliments.

Beautiful. Better than anticipated.

Unfortunately, I didn't take many photos, but this dress was really amazing. My boyfriend loved it and it was very appropriate for the Marine Ball I attended. I found that it ran a little large. I'm usually a size 18-20 and was able to fit into the 16. Even then it was a little loose around my shoulders.

I received a lot of compliments on both the dress and the earrings! Super comfortable dress!

I went to the store to try different styles, but they don't have as much variety in my sizes (between 14 and 16). Besides that fact, it was helpful to give me an idea about what sizes I fit better by designer. They suggested me to receive my order by mail, which didn't work. I had to call them after UPS didn't deliver it on time and I was leaving to Puerto Rico. They were super fast and able to help me in getting my order at the store! About the dress: I loved it. It runs large, so I would probably fit better in a 14, but it was not available for the dates I was going to rent it. The 16W was a little loose at the top part, but I was able to manage it. It was super comfortable to wear it, and it was perfect for my body type! Staff helped me with the earrings, which in my opinion fit great with the dress! I also received a lot of compliments at the gala!

Smaller size fit like a glove.

This dress got so many compliments. I felt beautiful, confident and comfortable in this dress. I didn't like any dresses I tried on it the stores in a size 22w, so I checked out rent the runway and found this gem. I'm not large chested, but I bet it would look even better, so it would work for both as you can wear a regular bra with it. I usually look like an egg with legs and this 20w size dress actually made me look like I had a shape and curves. Yes I wore the smaller size ordered. Length was perfect in the smaller size.

I didn't wear it

I didn't wear this dress. It was slightly too big, although I probably could have gotten away with the size, but for my 5'2" it was way too long even with heels.

I rented this for a wedding when my original dress didn't show, but couldn't wear it.

This dress is very pretty and I think if it fit, you could wear a normal bra with it and wouldn't need shapewear. I'm a true size 18, but I was swimming in the 18WL. I think I could have easily worn a 14. I did not end up wearing this dress.

I felt amazing in this dress. I wore it for a charity auction and ball. It was perfect.

I originally bought the dress in an 18, tried it on, returned it, and decided to rent. I was surprised that the 18 from RTR didn't fit and equally glad I was able to have a 20 sent as well. This dress was pretty low cut. If I could do it all again, I would have been more aggressive with my hollywood tape. The length was perfect for my flats. I wore a spanks tank and capri leggings underneath. I'm an 18 in jeans, and pretty much all my work dresses are size 18. I'm a DDD, and as you can see, this dress let me rock my curves!

Comfortable and flattering!

This dress fit perfectly. I had originally ordered the 22W and picked it up. After trying it on, it was a little too big. The 20W fit perfectly. I usually waver between a 20 and 22. Unfortunately, that size wasn't available to go with me then and there, but Barbara and Carla worked to find that size that would be available to be shipped to me in California for the wedding I was attending. I am 5'6" and wore 4" heels and the long just touched the tops of my shoes like it should. I wore a regular bra and had no issues with the straps or the back band showing. The fabric is comfortable and the dress is extremely figure flattering. I wouldn't hesitate to rent this again or even go out and buy it to have forever.

Perfect for Chicago black-tie wedding

I wore this dress for a black tie wedding in Chicago. It was form flattering and very comfortable. The v-neck allows you to wear a normal bra and the ruffles hide problem areas on the stomach. I was able to sit and dance comfortably and I got lots of compliments!

The evening was unforgettable because everyone had a great time at the event.

This was the first time that I had used RTR. We had a formal black tie fundraising event for work and I was going crazy because I had to go and get a dress that I would probably never wear again. I had heard of them from a co-worker who has rented from RTR. Unfortunately because I am so short, any dress is too long. I was very nervous when I tried it on. The length was fine. I didn't step on it at all. It fit great at the top also. The only con is that it showed a little too much cleavage. I received a lot of compliments on the dress. I would definitely rent again and I have recommended RTR to other people.

This dress fit like a dream. I'm 5'4" and the length just made it without scraping on the floor. It was so comfortable, but at the same time looked so elegant. I would wear it again in a heartbeat.

Elegant!

This dress was a win for me! It layed beautifully on my curves. It was comfortable. I was able to wear a regular bra. I did not wear spanx or anything other smoothing undergarment underneath. I wish I would've ordered the long length, but the regular was fine. I ordered a 16WR and an 18WR. I didn't even take the 18 out of the plastic. The 16 fit perfectly. Rent the Runway impressed me with their service and packaging. I'll definitely rent from them again in the future!

This was perfect for my event. It fit exactly like it did on the model. Loved it.

It fit just right. My biggest concern was that it would be too long, but if was the perfect length with kitten heels. It was in perfect condition. What a great idea to rent the runway!

The pics do not do this dress justice. I wore it to a gala and received multiple compliments. I thought it would be too matronly but the neckline was all too flattering!
