This dress was a perfect fit! I am 5"7' and weight approx 138lbs. Usually wear a size 6 and the 42R fit perfect. The photo does no justice to this dress.

You'll definitely stand out in a crowd!

Size worn: 40L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is absolutely stunning. The color is even more beautiful than the photo. It fit beautifully and the draping was very flattering. Unfortunately, the zipper was broken and I was unable to wear it to my event. The dress was longer than expected. At 5'7", I had 4" heels and the hem pooled around my feet. I hated to return the dress, but Rent the Runway made everything so easy.

The color is much prettier in person. Really nice dress but bad zipper construction.

Size worn: 42R
Overall fit: True to Size

Beautiful dress and the fabric in the lower half of the dress is forgiving. ***The Zipper is hard to work and almost took 2 people to zip*** Bad zipper. I thought the dress ran long. When you look at the sizing charts, it suggest 5'6" and higher should get the long. I ordered the long and it was much longer than anticipated. I am 5'7" and with heels I was close to 6' and the dress was still too long. Rent the Runway was awesome and sent me other dresses to try. But, I loved the design of this dress and color and went and bought higher heels.

Great color, tough fit.

Size worn: 42R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
For me, being short-waisted, this wasn't the right fit. I hoped the bodice portion would have ridden lower down to my hips, but it was right at my natural waist. For me it wasn't flattering to my backside. I ended up wearing a different style dress that I had ordered just in case. This dress would look wonderful on a thin or athletic build.

GORGEOUS DRESS

Size worn: 38L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was so pretty. The color is true to the picture. It fit so well on my chest, stomach and hips, but it was too long. I ordered the Long size, as I normally do because I wear very high heels, but I was tripping over the dress. RTR was awesome though and sent me a different dress free of charge since they didn't have the normal size in stock. I would totally rent it again as a normal size in the future. Very stretchy and flattering on your tummy.

Stunning, curve hugging, dress

Size worn: 42L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is very fitted and will hug your body. The cut is very narrow, so would not be good for a night of dancing.

Show stopping dress!

Size worn: 46L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is amazing! It fits like a glove (except for the chest which ran a little large on me), and looks wonderful! I got so many compliments, some younger girls at the event even gasped, and even heard women talking about my amazing dress behind my back all night long. The color is true to the model's photo, although in some lights it looks more of a royal blue. You will definitely need shape wear because it shows any bulge in the skin. The material is wonderful! It has a thick heavy feel to it, which makes it drape beautifully. The only downsides to this dress (and the reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars) are the length, and the zipper. It is LONG! I am 5'8" and wore 5" heels, and I still had to pick up the dress all night otherwise I would trip/step on it. The zipper is a problem because it is too dainty for the amount of material on the top of the dress. It took both my husband and me pulling as hard as we could on the zipper to get it up, and that was even with the top part of the dress being loose on my chest. My husband thought he was going to rip the dress or break the zipper! Thankfully, we got it up after awhile, which I was very glad about because I didn't know if I was going to get to wear the dress at all. I'm happy that it worked, because I felt stunning all night!

SO much prettier in the picture.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large

Was superbly disappointed in this dress. It's a really pretty color, but outside of that, I don't have much good to say. It fit me poorly in the chest area, showed EVERY flaw throughout the torso and was Exceptionally long, even with 5" heels. Wanted to like it--but, couldn't have worn it.

Beautiful gem like color and perfect fit!

Size worn: 38R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Dress is really beautiful and a fun color. I'm pretty petite, so only problem was the length - ran a bit long even with 3.5 inch heels. Doesn't cling and has a great shape/drape. Definitely recommend for a wedding or formal occasion!
