This dress was perfect for chaperoning a high school dance.
I loved this dress! It fit well, and was so comfortable. The first time in long time that I actually felt pretty in a dress. I did not want to return it!

I wore this dress to a rehearsal dinner. It was perfect for a hot summer night.
This fit well. It's stretchy material and very comfortable. It arrived very wrinkled, but nothing a steam shower couldn't iron out.

The perfect dress
This really is the perfect dress. I was SO happy when it arrived. First, I hadn't realized that the material is thick, textured, and stretchy. It fit really well without feeling tight or uncomfortable, all while hiding problem spots. The chiffon overlay provided additional coverage but did not make the dress matronly at all. I hadn't noticed in the picture that the overlay goes down on a diagonal from close to the shoulder on one side to the waist on the other -- it gave it an asymmetrical, stylish look. I'm 5'4" and the dress hit me right at the knee. It was so flattering and comfortable to dance in -- I might just buy it.

Las Vegas nite out!
Rented for an evening out in Las Vegas! This dress was super comfortable and the fabric had some give to allow a lot of gambling movement! The draped fabric was perfect to hide my trouble area, tummy! Will definitely rent this again. Was extremely happy that I could walk into the RTR shop to return my rentals because UPS is a little difficult to find in Vegas! Thanks RTR!

I loved this dress! It was very comfortable and the sheer shawl was just the right length to cover all the right spots. I am actually renting it again for another affair. the fabric is more stretchy than I had expected so I wore the larger size.

Great Dress!
I ordered this dress for a ball and thankfully there is a store near me to return as it runs on the small side. The dress itself it very pretty and can be worn for many occasions. The only downside of most of the dresses that I have found on here, including this one, is that if you are on the tall side, I'm almost 5'9, they are very short. This just made it! Comfortable, elegant, formal or informal this dress can be used for all!

This dress was simple yet elegant! Loved it!!!
I think this dress a little on the big side, but not dramatically bigger. It was exactly what I was expecting, it was a little simple for me, so I added a necklace and super cute heels! Some how I have no full length pictures from the entire night! I will for sure be using RTR again!

Flattering & Flaw concealing
I wore this dress to an autumn wedding and it was perfect. Nice neckline and hemline (fell just at the bottom of my knee). Chiffon capelet gave just enough concealment for the belly and upper arms while still looking elegant. Very comfortable and stylish without looking matronly.

The UPS left the dress out in the rain and it was soaked, but dried out fine.
Most comfortable dress I have worn in years. In fact, the only dress I have worn in year. I haven't taken it off yet, it is so well-fitting.

Extremely comfortable, you can wear any bra. Looks really good and covered up my arms!
Any bra is fine form fitting but hides the rolls comfortable just slip on black is sexy! the black sheer silk on top is dark so wont show your arms so much a little long for shorter girls 5'2''

The breathtaking bride and the gorgeous weather.
This was my first ever experience with Rent the Runway and it won't be my last. The dress was very comfortable, flattering and stylish. I received many compliments on it. One area that I wanted to camoflage was my midsection and the dress did just that. The pictures don't show the texture on the dress which is subtle and flattering as well. A bold necklace and earrings enhanced the look. Delivery of the dress went smoothly and returning was a snap.

Comfortable and classic
This was a nice dress to wear for a black tie dinner... very comfortable and loose fitting. Its a great dress to show off a pair of statement earrings or necklace. I only wished this showed a bit of cleavage, because it is somewhat matronly. But I was happy with it overall.

So comfortable and flattering!
Rented this dress for a wedding. I could have used one size smaller (I am usually between a size 14 and 16). The only size available for the time I needed was 16. It was a little big and the 14 probably would have been a better fit but the dress still looked great and because of the shear top that is attached it covered all my "problem areas".

Very flattering and comfortable!
This was for a cocktail attire business dinner party. I'm apple shaped and this was the perfect dress for me. It does run large, so if you're ordering a second size, I'd go a size down. I normally wear an 18 and wore a 16. It was incredibly comfortable and got lots of compliments.

I felt comfortable all night!
I typically wear an 18, but went with the 16 on this dress. I loved it! So many complements. My close friends told me that I should try to buy it! The flowing top allowed me to have coverage on my arms and hide my tummy without feeling like I was wearing a blanket. Perfect little black dress!!!

Stylist Review!
I was surprised by how much I liked this dress in person! It is super comfortable. The flowy overlay hides a multitude of things. The material is super stretchy and very soft and comfortable. It's also a thicker material, which is good for events year round! This dress is definitely one that I would recommend!

This was the easiest and most cost effective dress-up situation I have experienced in years.
Fit was perfect (didn't need the bigger size, but was glad that was an option). I added a black jacket and some gold jewelry and the look was great. Easily boxed up everything on Sunday and sent it back.

I rented this for a funeral.
It looked great for the funeral. It ran very large!! I went a size up just to be on the safe size, and I think I would have done fine with a size smaller than I usually wear.

Most flattering dress I've ever worn!
This was my first experience with RTR, so I was nervous, but in the end, couldn’t have been happier. Both sizes sent fit well, but I ended up going with the smaller of the two. I wanted a dress that covered my arms without looking like a nun & this was exactly what I had in mind! It camouflaged my midsection and was so comfortable. I got compliments all night from friends and strangers on how flattering it was. Paired with a statement necklace, this is the perfect dress.

Beautiful and comfy, runs big
I received this dress as an emergency shipment after my initial dress didn't fit. It arrived minutes before I was due to leave for my event (phew!). It was beautiful and comfortable and was 100% appropriate for the black tie event. I got a lot of compliments despite the fact that the dress was way to big on me. I am bigger on top, so I the top of this dress was only slightly large. However, I was positively swimming in the bottom. If I had gotten one size smaller, it would have been perfect.

Super comfortable and great for anyone with a little extra around the middle!
The dress has a flattering cut. At the moment I am wearing mostly 14-16 in other clothes, this dress ran a bit larger and I am happy to say I probably could have even gone down to a 12 if it was available. The only thing I'd change about the dress is the hemline. I think it could be about 5 inches shorter. It's a great dress if you're looking for a more modest and classy/sophisticated look.
