The dress was absolutely stunning. It's definitely a head turner for any formal event.
The dress fit true to size and the fabric is somewhat stretchy. Very comfortable and cool material.

Cape-tastic!
I LOVED this dress, it made me so sad to return it. The fabric is comfortable and it fit like a glove. The cape sleeves are so fun and eye catching I got compliments all night!

Great [unique] dress!
I LOVED this dress! It's so different than anything I've ever worn. As soon as I saw it on this site I knew I wanted to wear it for Valentine's Day. It is bordering on "little red riding hood"/"superwoman"-ish, so I'd keep the accessories simple and avoid tights and/or boots. (It was slightly freezing in Florida the night I wore this, but I'm glad I toughed it out!) I got tons of compliments, from a friend to my husband, and even a total stranger at the restaurant! The fit was so flattering, I just love everything about it. If you're looking for something that's showstopping and unique, this is it!

I wore the larger size just because it fit my curves better. I got so many compliments. I wore it to a school film award show. T

High fashion and polished look
I wore this to an evening with the San Francisco Ballet, #Sensorium, a night merging the classical arts with social media. I got so many compliments on my dress! It was very modern, and polished looking. It was very comfortable and a great color. Although a little loose, the dress was not ill-fitting as the darting is done well for the sheath part of the dress and is almost body-con. Would rent again!

Beautiful, unique, high quality, comfortable dress! I felt fabulous in this dress! I definitely got a little hot at times, so it may not be perfect for a summer event.

I never wear red dresses so this was kind of risky for me.
I usually wear a size 14 so the 14 W was just a little bit big but perfect enough so that it didn't look too tight. It was absolutely stunning and I was receiving compliments all night. i loved this dress!!

I had rented before and was very pleased.
I rented this dress for Easter Sunday. The compliments were over whelming. The fit was perfect, and the material was beautiful and very rich looking. I truly didn't want to send the dress back and would hope it would be available for purchase when it is out of rotation. Thank you rent the runway for making my day!

A definite head turner and show stopper! I loved this dress!
I loved this dress and cannot say enough about it. After seeing it on Single Ladies and another television show within the same week I had to wear it. The material is nice and I didn't feel like I had to wear shapewear but did anyway. I have large breasts but proportioned for my size so I was initially concerned that the bust would be too tight but it was perfect. I received so many compliments and even more stares which was my intention. I saw this outfit on sale at Nordstrom's before (no longer available) and wanted it but thought this dress was too unique to be your classic dress you can wear in a cinch. This is what makes this dress the perfect Rent the Runway purchase. A beautiful dress that is unique and memorable. However, it is a dress you do not want to invest the money in because you cannot wear too many times.

Absolute stunner!
I was hesitant to try this dress because it's so far outside of my comfort zone - but I'm SO glad I did! The pros - high quality fabric, gorgeous shade of red, a bit of stretch for ease of movement/comfort, flattering for the hourglass figure, nice length, and high style. Cons - a bit large in the bust. Compliments galore all night long - I felt like a star in this stunner. Not for the faint of heart - this dress WILL get you noticed. I wore this with black patent pumps, a simple crystal and jet bead bracelet, and carried a black beaded clutch. Bummed I forgot to snap a pic in this one...

This dress was an absolute HIT!!!! #OliviaPopeGreatness
Everyone loved it especially the Bride!!!! I received so many compliments. This dress was actually my plan b because plan a didn't fit properly. I immediately contact RTR and they were able to overnight this dress to me in time for the wedding. Of course, at the last minute I kind of had to settle for the size that was available, luckily for me it was a size bigger than what I needed so it still looked incredible. The fit wasn't too off. The cape is incredible, it's definitely different but I felt so elegant all night long, and it came in handy if I got cold. The dress isn't too short it's a perfect length above the knee (about mid-thigh). The a-line fit is slimming so it gives you that hourglass figure that every woman desires. The fabric is also stretchy and does NOT wrinkle. My friend (the bride) was in aw of it and she kept telling me I was giving her Olivia Pope greatness!! Overall the dress is beautiful and you'll feel regal when you wear it!!!

Beautiful dress
I rented this as one of two options for my Wedding Shower, and actually didn't wear it. It was super cute on (and very comfortable) but it was just way too hot to wear that day. It was like 80 degrees or something, and the fabric the dress is made of is better suited for Spring/Fall weather (60-70 degrees) than humid Summer weather.

I should have gotten my correct size in order to allow the dress to hang instead of hug.
I wore this dress to a black tie awards gala. I was inspired by the Ralph Lauren dress Lupita Nyongo wore. The dress was a complete success. I felt like it was my prom night. I felt so beautiful and elegant. The cape definitely added a touch of class to an ordinary sheath dress. WHen I walked into the ballroom heads were turning. Although the dress fit, it kept creeping up and I found mysel tugging on it everytime I walked or got up from a chair.

Everything was quick and simple. Stress free. What helped the most was the reviews on true to size. Will use you guys again!

Obsessed with this dress!
I absolutely love this dress. The cape is everything! The fabric has a bit a stretch to it so it is very comfortable. However, with that, it does tend to highlight any bumps so invest in some spanx, if necessary.

Design and cape was very flattering to my figure flaws. I got so many compliments in this dress. Only complaint was that it was shorter than I thought.

This was my first time using RTR and I was very pleased.
The fit was great. Only con was that it was a little big under the arm which showed side bra a little but the cape helped to cover it. I would definitely rent this dress again and all night I kept thinking I need to find a way to buy this dress! Lol I recorded so many compliments and had a great night at the wedding because I felt so beautiful and most importantly comfortable!

This dress was perfect for our engagement photos. The color really popped!
It ran a little big. I had to pin it, but otherwise it was perfect. It might be best on someone with a larger bust (C cup or larger). I had to wear a very padded bra to fill it out.

It was EVERYTHING!
This dress was AWESOME! I got so many compliments during the wedding. It does have a stretch so for some who like a closer fit a size down would be ok. A body shaper is 100% needed. The dress isn't lined so if you are not careful your belly button will show.

The dress was a total show stopper. Wedding guests and even the Bride kept complimenting it!
The fit was true to size and I definitely wore my spanx under it. I loved the way it hugged my silhouette without being tight. The fabric is not hot and definitely breathes and moves with you so I got to dance the night away. I was worried the cape would be cumbersome but since it's actually two pieces it wasn't . I paired the dress with simple sparkly earrings and bracelet and a totally minimal necklace so that the dress could make the biggest statement. It turned out to be the most unique ensemble of any guest in attendance. I literally was being complimented all night. I LOVED THIS DRESS!!! So flattering! I usually wear a 18/20 and I had both sizes sent to me but the 20 was a little too loose. It's definitely something that I could only wear once so I'm glad I rented it instead of trying to purchase it. My Instagram photos will live on in infamy haha!

Amazing, stylish, classy, eye catcher!
Ordered for homecoming dance. I normally wear a size 12 so the dress was a little loose but didn't look bad on me. Very comfortable. Received many compliments throughout the night. This was one of three dresses that I ordered and the last one to arrive. I didn't have much luck with the first two dresses. I was ecstatic when I tried this one on. It looked amazing! I felt like a million bucks. I have broad shoulders so I was a little concerned that the dress would make me look wide but it ended up being very slimming.

HUZZAH!
Fit like a glove. I love that it's a tank dress but the built-in cape covers my upper arms. The color POPS and I got compliment after compliment all night long. Definitely dress it up with a statement necklace (I got one from RTR.) It's a great dress that's immediately fancy yet also casual.

The dress was a hit! I received so many compliments. Will order again.
reading the comments about the dress I chose to get the 16 as my primary and the 14 as a back up. The 16 was too big and the 14 fit perfectly. The only issue I had was that by the end of the night the dress was rubbing a little under my armpit.

Loved it - perfect Red color, fit is great (a little generous) and comfortable, really unusual cape!
I got tons of compliments on this dress - and the red color was a standout (what a great vibrant true red!), perfect for the holidays. I wore it to a fancy brunch with friends at a downtown Detroit hotspot, then to the Detroit Symphony Orchestra performance of Mahler's Resurrection Symphony. I got a ton of compliments from strangers. I really really enjoyed wearing the cape, and it kept me warm too. So much so, that I am going to rent other caped items! The length was good (not revealing) on my 5'4" frame, perhaps just a tad long to my knee.
