RTR was so easy to work with, even with an exchange.
This dress was elegant and very comfortable. I was so pleased. It was forgiving to my post-baby curvy body.

I received a ton of compliments on this dress and how it fit. Extremely comfortable.
The fit was very flowing, form fitting on the bust and flowing on the bottom. The tie is separate which I didnt realize when I rented it, but it was fine. The arm lace is roomy and comfortable. I would recommend this dress. It does run true to size.

So comfortable and gave me so much confidence at my 10 year high school reunion. Loved it!
It fits loose around the midsection, but the material hangs so nicely that with the belt it accents the waist perfectly. I loved that it was light and flowing. The dress felt longer on me than I originally thought, but I like longer dresses. Also, the silky accessory belt was fraying on the very ends, but no one else but me noticed. Great dress to rent over all.

This is an awesome dancing dress!
I wore this dress for my son's art and dance party bar mitzvah. I was "the lady in the beautiful dress". This dress fit like a dream! Very comfortable, and lovely. This was my first order from Rent the Runway, but it won't be my last. I felt like a princess.

Flowy, danceable dress with great detail at the top. I felt like a million bucks!
The fit was as advertised. I might have been able to wear a size down, but this was very comfortable. The lace at the top provided enough coverage and my body slimmer underneath was undetectable. The dress arrived without the sash shown, so I ran to Michael's and bought an 1.5" satin black ribbon to wear - it was perfect. Without the sash, it hung too straight. Only note is to be careful with the lace on the hanger - when the dress arrived, it had a small tear where the cut-out from the hanger must have caught in transit. I put a small stitch in it so it wouldn't expand. I would rent this again, except with all the compliments, it would be noticable.

This was my back up dress and it was the perfect solution to a bad 1st choice! Looked great!
The fit as true to size, no cons, great alternative to a bad 1st choice. I would have preferred to be able to have had the dresses sent earlier for a pre-fitting first!

I loved the fact of being dressed up but feeling comfortable in a stunning dress.
This dress fits exactly as the measurements says in the size guide. I will say that the dress has belt loops but it doesn't come with a belt and the loops kind of stick out a bit. You can wear this with a normal bra just try to make sure that your bra is solid black if you don't want it show through the lace up top. I really loved the dress and loved that the way that it is cut that you do not need to wear body shaping garments unless you feel the need to. I wore this to a military graduation function and felt comfortable wearing it next to the service members in their formal uniforms.

I wore it to a party for my daughters theater group.
I loved this dress. It was flattering, flowed nicely, and extremely comfortable. I did change the sash from the black one that came with the dress to a red sash that matched my shoes.

I wore this for a formal event for work.
The dress is very lightweight, flowy, charming and sweet. It was comfortable and easy to work with. I have a bit of belly that is over my natural waist, so the belt was a bit of a challenge to make work. The top portion (lace) was a little on the blousy side, but if you have a large chest, this will give you plenty to work with. I'm 5'6" and the hem came down to 2" below my knee. I assumed that the lace top was lined, so was thrown for a bit of a curve when it arrived in having to find a camisole at the last minute (my 44D chest doesn't work well with strapless bras). Overall, it was a fab dress and I'd wear it again for the same event or even a wedding.

I just had a baby and still have a round tummy - LOVED this dress.
I was so so happy with this dress. I just had a baby a few months ago and still do not fit in my normal sized clothes. I have a round stomach still and this was the first thing that I have worn in a long time that made me feel great. It was flowly, flattering, and was just a great, great dress. I loved it. The 16 fit but with my baby bump still there, I felt more comfortable in the 18. Was so glad they sent me 2 sizes! :)

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this dress. My favorite RTR of all time!
Fits true to size. The perfect "little Black dress". I loved it so much I'm trying to purchase it from a retailer that sells it!

I received a lot of compliments and felt very confident.
I am 5'8" and it came about 2" below my knee which was perfect for me since I have pudgy knees and varicose veins at my knee. It was very flowy and comfortable and was perfect for the wedding. Having the lace sleeves hid enough of my upper arms that I didn't feel self-conscience about them and kept me cool in a crowded warm room. I wish I would have remembered to take a full length picture to share.

So many compliments, so much fun!!
They were out of my normal size (20) so I got the 22. While it was a little big, it still fit really well. It didn't come with a black sash, but that ended up working out really well since it was a red-tie affair, so I bought a red ribbon to tie around the dress and it fit perfectly for the event. Normally I find it really difficult and frustrating to shop for dresses because they either don't fit well or are extremely immodest. I fell in love with this dress right away because it was a little longer and so classy! It wasn't skin tight like a lot of other dresses are these days. I can't wait to find another big event to go to so I can rent from this company again!

Flattering, beautiful dress!
I felt so comfortable and confident in this dress! Received tons of compliments! The dress was a little long (hitting well below the knee), but I didn't mind because my legs are not my best feature. The cut of the dress was particularly flattering to an hourglass frame (ie: hiding those hips!). I originally ordered the 20W and 18W and both were too baggy so RTR overnighted me the 16W with no questions asked. Great customer service!!

Nice dress!
This is a very nice dress but it does have a bit of a generous fit. I am in between sizes so I wanted to order something I thought I could fit in to. Turns out this was too big. I contacted customer service and they sent me another dress overnight.

I loved the dress; it was perfect for the wedding I attended.
The dress was true to size though if I had a larger chest, it might have been a bit too tight at the top. I'm 5'10 and it hit just below the knee which was a few inches lower than I had anticipated. I loved the material of the dress and it twirled nicely while dancing.

It fit a little large but it was a beautiful dress. Be sure to request the sash because it was forgotten in my order. RTR was amazing at making it right for me! I love RTR!!!

I got compliments all night. It was beautiful!! I can't wait for my next event!
I am an actual size 20 but the 20 that I got was a bit tight on me. Thank goodness I had the second option!! Other than that it was beautiful!

Well, I ended up not wearing it, Not exactly what I thought it would look like on me.
The dress is absolutely gorgeous, just not on me. I am a true 22W , the dress was tight on my back and shoulders. Plus I though the belt was wider and I am short waisted, therefore I had no waist with the belt. I didn't wear it to my event. But it is one of the prettiest dresses I have ever had on.
