The service I received while renting this dress was amazing! The dress was absolutely beautiful.

The dress was exactly what I expected! It was a beautiful color, very comfortable and high quality. It does run a little large but I would not have wanted a smaller size and risk having to any shorter. It is a heavier lace, which kept me warm(loved that, I'm always cold) but I wouldn't suggest it for an outside event in the summer months. It was perfect for what I needed and I will be renting again!

Fit well but make sure if you want a form fit to use good under garnets and a superb bra :)

Red is everyone's color when they wear this dress!!!

I really loved this dress! I received so many compliments on it. The dress runs a bit large, so I wore my smaller option. The one in my size still looked amazing on, but the fit was a little better on the smaller size. The material was a little heavy, so having an outside party in the southern April weather wasn't ideal, but I definitely wasn't miserably hot. I would suggest wearing it to an indoor event. I will more than likely rent this dress again bc that's how much I loved it! You won't be sorry for renting it and you will love all the attention/compliments!

Received a lot of compliments.

I choose to wear the 16W but the 14W also fit but was a bit shorter. I have large arms so I was excited that the sleeves fit. I had to purchase a red bra as the lining has spaghetti straps. Very comfortable.

I felt gorgeous and received lots of compliments as the lady in red !

It was comfortable, classy, yet sexy. Fit true to size, I am also really short but it fell right on my knees Perfect for an outside wedding. I was a little nervous of tugging the lace because it felt so dainty.

A beautiful, sophisticated dress!

After reading everyone's reviews and deciding the dress ran large, I went with a size 14 and it fit perfectly. I was worried I was going to be overdressed for my event, so I tried to dress it down with some flat, and that worked well. If I'm being honest, I shop at Kohl's a lot, and this dress felt so different from the stuff I normally wear - it didn't feel cheap! I didn't once worry about pulling the lace overlay... it was secure. I really loved this dress and probably will wind up renting it again!

Beautiful dress- gorgeous color and details!

I wore this to my cousin's wedding in wine country in California. In February, it can still be chilly there so I picked one with some sleeves just in case and it was the perfect choice. Both sizes fit, the 16W and the 18W, but the 16 was more snug around my stomach, which is my problem area (I still haven't lost my "baby weight" 15 months later...) so I went with the 18W, even though it was a little big in the sleeves, but it didn't look bad. The color is a gorgeous shade of red in person and the quality of the material and the lace was so beautiful. I got lots of compliments on the dress and I felt so pretty in it. I would definitely rent it again!

Made me feel sexy!

This was my first RTR experience, and I definitely plan to order through them again! I'm glad I got the two sizes I did (16W and 18W) because they both fit differently depending on what I had on underneath (aka no spanx or spanx). Luckily I found some amazing spanx that allowed me to fit into the smaller size. It didn't look or feel too small at all either. I got a lot of compliments, espcecially for the red color. Perfect for holidays. The underneath slip was weird at first, but you just have to make sure you place it correctly and pull it down all the way. Also, I highly recommend wearing a bra that matches the color of the dress because you could see nude and black through the lace on top. I'm so happy I got this dress and it fit! Made for a great holiday party!

This special occasion dress was perfect for my event!! The red was memorable, too!

The dress fit was forgiving where needed yet gave me a curvy shape. Length was good. Lace didn't catch on anything. Color is gorgeous.

Beautiful dress for 8th grade formal

Great fit- a bit stretchy, so we could have gone one sixe down, but it worked great. My daughter is very conservative, as far as fit, and was so happy with this dress. She is very athletically built and has a hard time getting things to fit her well through the chest and shoulders. It worked perfectly and the lace wasnt scratchy.

This dress was classic and beautiful.

The red and lace were a classic and beautiful combo for the upscale wedding I attended. I normally don't wear such a bold color for a wedding, but the classic cut of the dress made me feel more comfortable with it. I sized up to give it a looser look, although I loved how the true to size dress looked too. I absolutely loved this dress and received countless compliments all night long. Totally recommend for someone looking for a classic look.

Beautiful dress!

The dress is a beautiful, vibrant red. I think it does run a little big. It was a little boxy though, definitely did accentuate the curves. I tried pairing it with a thick, black belt and it was too much, but it might work with a skinny belt (to give it a little more shape.)

Beautiful Red Lace Dress!

This was my first experience with RTR and although I was a bit anxious the dress was absolutely gorgeous! By reading other ladies reviews I was able to determine the size that would work best for me. The dress does run a bit large but at my age, I am all about comfort. I wore this to Western KY University Homecoming Events and Football Game and received so many compliments both in person & texts , even the next day. I am pictured with my daughter who also rented her red dress from RTR. We both were very pleased! In fact we have another event (formal) this upcoming weekend, and our dresses from RTR are on the way! Hope to post more pictures soon!

Great dress, looked more expensive in person!

Flattering! I'm between a 14W and 16W so there isn't a lot of variety available to me. I was pleasantly surprised with this dress. I thought because it didn't have much of a waist it would look like a potato sack on me, but sizing down I found it to be a flattering, but comfortable dress for a wedding. Dancing and eating didn't make it any less comfortable. Be careful about bracelets as the lacy fabric catches. Got compliments all night!

The compliment I got most on this dress was "that color is amazing."

I got the dress as a quick replacement from customer service due to a problem with the dress I had initially ordered. (Customer Service with RTR is AMAZING by the way.) I had worn a dress by this designer before so I knew the size would work for my body. The fit was still a little loose, but overall very comfortable. Had quite a few people walk up and remark on how beautiful the color is. I'd definitely wear another dress by this designer again. Felt really very elegant in this dress. Loved it.

Very comfortable and looks like a million bucks!

I wore this one to my office holiday party and the compliments were non stop. It runs a little on the larger side but all good if you are top heavy. Very soft lace not itchy.

Beautiful dress for an evening wedding.

I really enjoyed this dress and received many compliments on it. I am almost 5'10" and it wasn't too short, which was a minor miracle. I ended up wearing the smaller size and still was able to put it on without unzipping the back. There are two slips underneath, so I felt well covered. The lace is substantial and well-made. I did need to wear shaping undergarments because the dress is not structured enough to smooth any problem areas. The color of the dress in person is definitely deeper than in the picture. It has more of a wine undertone than orange. I would definitely recommend this dress.

First and not last RTR experience!

I was looking for a dress that was at least cocktail dressy, but not too revealing. I love this red lace dress! Based on other reviews, I ordered my typical size and 1 size up. I ended up wearing the larger size (though both fit), but my regular size showed a little too much curve for my taste. The lace is beautiful and heavy- I didn't have any problems with holes or snags. The dress is lined, but I still wore shapewear underneath. I was a little apprehensive about the lace arms (no stretch), but my bigger arms fit just fine with room to spare. Overall I am very pleased with my experience with Rent the Runway, and this dress in particular!

I wore this dress to my fiance' and I's Holiday Engagement party.

I was in between two sizes (18 and 20) and decided to wear the 20 just in case. It was a little big on me- but I'm weirdly shaped (much smaller on top than bottom). It was so light and comfy- I got SO many compliments. The red really pops in photos! Awesome Holiday party dress. This was was my first RTR experience and I couldn't be more pleased! Happy Renting!

Perfect dress for a semi-formal Mardi Gras party!

This dress is true to size. The color is exactly as shown. Beautiful lace fabric. I attended a Mardi Gras function (sorta like a ball, but no long dresses) and received TONS of compliments. I'm so glad I chose this dress and Rent The Runway. I highly recommend this dress AND this company. This was my first rental, but certainly not my last.

This dress was really comfortable..

I ended up wearing the smaller of the two sizes. Hit right above the knee. I'm 5'11". It wasn't too tight, but slightly form fitting. Remember to wear a beige bra, because the top is lace. I got a lot of compliments. I have bigger arms but the lace sleeves were totally comfortable too. All in all, a great choice and a beautiful dress. Will definitely be renting again!

Lady in Red!

I rented this dress for a wedding. The color was absolutely gorgeous. The dress was a little boxy but I felt very comfortable. The back is just as stunning. Added a pop of fun with a leopard clutch and nude heels. Get ready to be complimented all night!

This dress is INCREDIBLE!

I was hesitant to get a shorter dress and Oh, I'm so glad I did! It was flexible and comfortable. I danced all night and didn't want to take it off for the after party- so I didn't! The photo online makes it look a bit boxy but in person it's totally not. It looked so sexy, it hugged my curves in all the right places. It's so elegant all you need are some killer earrings and some nude shoes. I will definitely be renting this again. Absolutely NO cons! I typically wear a size 18/20, have 42HH boobs, and I'm 5'6" tall. This hit me right above the knees. Do yourself a favor and rent this dress :)

I received many compliments on this beautiful dress. The price was amazing!

The dress was very comfortable. I'm not normally a 14w. I wasn't sure what size to get so I went to a plus size because of it being a sheath dress. After gaining 20lbs over the summer I couldn't find a dress so I decided to give RTW a try. I didn't want a 14w in my closet that I would never wear again. I'm 5'7" and 190lbs. I'm pear shaped also. The length was perfect, it hit just at my knee. It was a little loose but not enough to be falling off. I'm so happy to have stumbled across this site and I'll be ordering again and again. I'm so grateful!

Perfect dress for a winter wedding

This was a great dress for a November wedding in Chicago! The color was great - it's a slightly deeper red in person than in the photos. The red lace felt really fun and was balanced by the dress's more conservative silhouette for a fancy wedding. The dress was super comfortable - there's not much stretch to the arms, but the body of the dress is pretty forgiving. I'd size up for my backup if I was on the edge of a size. I usually wear a 14-16 and both the 14W and 16W fit fine- the 14W fit a little better in the shoulders so I went with that one. Wear a red or nude bra - the straps of the slip under the lace are thin and it will show through. I'm 5'6" and it was just knee length and crept up a few inches as I walked around/danced.

LOVED this dress! I felt elegant and stunning. No one had another like it.

Comfortable. Maybe a little large, but I liked the room. It's lined with a slip that helps cover your middle. Perfect dress, I'd love to buy it but never usually wear the same dress twice, so renting was the best option!

Got lots of compliments on this dress!

Lots of compliments on this dress - especially on the vibrant color. I wore this for a work dinner (fairly formal). While most everyone else was wearing black - this really stood out. Dress had some definite "wear and tear" issues...small tears in the lace overlay. No one noticed they were there, but I knew it. Not used to having condition issues, even with a "rental".

Great color, comfortable, and light.

Lots of compliments! Loved the lace and the color. Had a small snag/rip on the lace in the front, but I don't think anyone noticed. Very comfortable and light. A little bit big for me, but still worked.

I got so many compliments on this dress, it's so beautiful. My boyfriend really liked it!

It felt just right on me -- not too tight, but still snug enough to flatter my figure. The color is gorgeous and the lace is just beautiful. Loved it.
