I opened the box, put on the dress -- and it fit! And, I loved it!

I never thought I could wear a sheath dress -- Adrianna Papell proved me wrong. Super color; comfortable.

Beautiful color and excellent quality.

The fit is true to size the only negative thing is that I am only 5"1 so the dress was well below the knee. I didn't mind for this occasion.

LOVE this dress! I'll rent it again and again! Always great compliments!

I wore this for our wedding Meet & Greet cocktail party. I ordered the 14 and 16 because I was afraid that I wouldn't fit in the 14 and I was unsure of what size I was in because I've lost a lot of weight in the last year. Needless to say, I wore the 14 and while it was a little big, it looked amazing and I got TONS of compliments on it. I have rented this dress in 2 different colors and would rent it again!

A classic dress in a bold color!

This dress is absolutely beautiful and fits like a dream. I rented this dress in dark purple for a wedding last fall and decided to rent it again because I loved it so much. This dress runs a little large, but it's not so large that your normal size would look awkward.

I felt like a million bucks wearing this dress!

I loved the color of the royal blue. I'm always a fan of dresses with sleeves because I'm conscious of my arms. Great length wore it with tan wedges for a Florida outdoor wedding in April.

Comfortable and classic

I rented this for our engagement pictures - and it was perfect! The dress was fitted without being tight. The 16W was actually my backup size instead of the 18W I ordered! The sleeves are a bit tight but not restrictively so. This was the perfect length, very classy and pretty, not at all matronly like some plus size dresses can be. I love it!

It was an outdoor wedding by the lake.

This was a second pick. The color is a popping blue. It lacked shape. I like that it went below the knee. It was also a bit heavy to wear at an outdoor wedding

The dress was a beautiful color and very comfortable. I got complements all night long. Would rent this dress again!

Great color, runs large

RTR sent this as a back up dress when the size in my other dress wasn't available (they actually sent me three extra dresses which was really great). The color is really great but the lace feels really thick and heavy when on. My size was too large and did hug any areas so I felt a bit like a blueberry. Curious if I had the smaller size of it would have been an issue.

Nice classy dress

I didn't end up wearing this dress as it was too big but this dress is perfect for a nice work occasion or fancy wedding. It's very demure and covers arms that you may not want to show! Great for Apple as well as pear shapes!

Looked great!

I rented this for my best friend who is 5'10 & size 18-20, for a girls day & pictures. She looked fabulous & the dress was perfect for her height. If this ever comes up for sale on the site I would buy it for her in a heart beat.

Classic, gorgeous!

I really love this dress! I felt beautiful wearing it and had such a fun time at the wedding we attended on a vineyard. The dress is definitely a little bit heavier than it looks, during the ceremony I was hot, but once the sun set and the breeze came through, I was so glad I went with a dress that had sleeves. The dress did run a little big around the arms and across the neck for me but it was not a big deal. The shift silhouette was perfect and incredibly flattering. I tried the 20 which was had a great fit and shape, however there dress has a dual zipper on the back, so when I did the "dance test" the bottom zipper began to unzip, so I opted for the bigger size which worked just fine! I am definitely renting this dress again for another wedding I have coming up in the fall!

Loved this dress - a really nice blue made it stand out.

It was just great. I felt really comfortable. I liked how the sleeves go to elbow, but are not solid so it has an airier feel.

its the perfect dress, i didn't even need spanx/shapewear.

I usually wear an 18, runs big so the 16 fit fine. I felt very comfortable throughout the event. Perfect for outdoor fall and for indoor A/C events.

Impeccably made and phenomenal quality.

Beautiful dress that will ensure my continued patronage of Rent the Runway. I wore it to an afternoon wedding at a very, very expensive venue and received so many compliments. It moved easily as I helped corral my two small grandsons who were in the wedding. I am a natural redhead and the true cobalt blue of the dress was perfect for me. I am also 5'9" and the dress came about one to two inches above my knee. Perfect dress!

Looked spectacular!

The dress actually fit very well. I'm a 42G/H and this dress fit perfectly; the girls had room and were not squished. I loved this dress as I did not look like a stuffed sausage and I was able to move around with ease. The only draw back was the lace is easy to catch things on.

Beautiful gown. Made me feel sleek and sexy.

Fit perfectly. I liked how it skimmed down my body but wasn't skin tight. You could see my curves but it wasn't so tight it made me uncomfortable. Just lovely.

Beautiful color, perfect for a fall wedding!

I wore this to a friend's wedding and really liked it. I will say that I think it runs a tad small as I am between an 18 and a 20 and felt the 20 was almost a bit snug (but that might also be my own self consciousness since I am not used to wearing sheath style dresses that cling more) so you have to make sure to wear some shapewear underneath. I did really like the dress though, it was really nice to wear longer sleeves in when the weather is cooler and the color is really nice without being too bright. I got several compliments on the dress!

The bright blue color was different and nice for a holiday party instead of constantly wearing black.

Textured beauty!

I ordered a size up, based on my prior experience with the designer's usual cut but, it was a bit big. True to size with this lovely dress. I wore this for a New Year's Eve- I started at a party with some work colleagues then jetted to worship service. I had plenty of compliments on the dress at both! It is comfy and forgiving in the tummy area. If I find it at a good price, I may even buy this one!

The dress fit great! My backup size was not available so I went with the 16, and really could have used the 14! But I got so many compliments at my cousins bridal shower! Definitely can't wait to rent again!! :)

Colorfully lacy! Definitely a trend for the evening.

Wore the larger size, since I forgot shape wear. Shouldn't have, but I was worried about clinging. Shouldn't have. Ended up too big and somewhat shapeless, but was super comfy! The color and cut of the garment are great. Wished the neckline was either higher or lower to accommodate my necklace better. Loved the sleeve length, didn't require a jacket on a windy spring evening, just a throw. Will definitely consider renting again!

Lots of compliments on the dress. So comfortable and made me feel really great!

The one bad thing about this dress is there wasn't a lot of shape to it. It was very straight down and did not hug to curves. I had to add a belt to give it some shape. I probably could have gone with a size smaller as well, but with the sizes I had I had to work with what I had!

Just not right...

This dress is beautiful on the hanger, however, it fits pretty large, hung past the knees, and is just generally boxy. This may work well for other body types but not for mine. RTR was a great help in sending another over night and I was very pleased!

Perfect dress for an outdoor wedding in February

This dress was exactly what I was looking for. Fun (lace!) and a great color (lots of compliments) but a touch conservative (high neckline). The lace on the arms was lightweight and easy to move in and the rest of the dress was a heavy fabric which provided lots of coverage. It ran a little large on me ... I'm usually a true 16, so the 16W was loose around my waist but fit fine in the shoulders and arms. It's a really forgiving dress, so I probably could have gone down a size, but unfortunately I was worried about it being too tight (first RTR purchase) and I sized up for my backup dress.

Shapeless

This ran large and didnt have much shape. It was a little frumpy and matronly looking on me IMO. The quality and color was great, but the style was not flattering on my body.
