Super comfortable and great for anyone with a little extra around the middle!

Size worn: 14W
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Vacation
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.

Beautiful and comfy, runs big

Size worn: 16W
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
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.

Most flattering dress I've ever worn!

Size worn: 18W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
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.

I rented this for a funeral.

Size worn: 18W
Overall fit: Large

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.

This was the easiest and most cost effective dress-up situation I have experienced in years.

Size worn: 18W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
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.

Too Big

Size worn: 16W
Rented for: Formal Affair
This was a very pretty dress but the 16 was way to big for me. I sent it back and RTR sent another dress to me overnight.

Stylist Review!

Size worn: 14W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
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!

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!!!

It does run larger (I had read that but got my usual size), it was still just right.

Very flattering and comfortable!

Rented for: Party
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.

So comfortable and flattering!

Size worn: 16W
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
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".

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.

The breathtaking bride and the gorgeous weather.

Size worn: 14W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
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.
