The dress was perfect! Fit great and the accessories made the dress shine!
The fit was great! Pro was that it was fit just enough for it not to be too fit. Loved it!

can't beat this neckline, and the shape & structure of the dress is fabulous!
This was my backup overnighted by RTR when the badgley mischka would have just been too heavy for the weather. I will definitely be renting this again for christmas time -- it's the PERFECT color for the holidays and definitely better suited for the colder weather. That said, it was still a HUGE hit for the girls night out of town I attended. Sexy at the neckline but totally classy at the same time.

The color and fabric were perfect for an outdoor fall wedding!
I usually wear a 6 and this dress fit well in the 6. Definitely pushed the girls up so beware if you're uncomfortable with that. It was a tiny bit longer than I prefer on my body type but since the skirt stuck out a little it wasn't obvious. The zipper came undone (the teeth separated) during the event, even after I had been wearing the dress both sitting and standing for a few hours, but it was easily fixed by unzippering all the way then zipping back up to realign the teeth. Luckily I had a sweater on over it.

The dress is not a good choice for full-busted ladies.
I picked this dress to wear to a work holiday party, and I was so sad to get it in the mail and realize that it wasn't going to work! I am a 36DD, normally a size 8-10 in a dress, and this dress was just too much cleavage. Also, as often happens, it seemed to push my bust in, giving a non-complimentary side profile.

Great Party Dress that stands out from the lbd.
Pros- really cool fabric. Gives you a nice feminine shape. Looks great in pics. Cons - runs a little large, so it was a little big in the waist area--which would have looked better a little tighter.

Wore this to a black tie evening wedding in Miami. The fit was perfect & got tons of compliments!
Length was a little above knee. Has a fun twirl. Was able to wear a real bra and underwear so major win in my book. Make sure you try on the dress and see how the neckline hits you- it's low but not in a scandalous way but it might require some fashion tape or playing around with finding the right undergarments. LOVE THIS DRESS!

I got many compliments throughout the night on my dress!
I ordered a 4 for my main size and a 6 as a backup and ended up wearing the 4. This dress fit so nicely and it was great to be able to wear a regular bra with it. Being 5'10", it was a little bit short, but I wore it with black tights since it was a winter event and it still looked great.

It was a work cocktail party. My husband wore a kilt, which was a great ice breaker. Food was good
I loved this dress. It fit true to size. I got my size and a smaller size since it was a less form fitting skirt. But, I couldn't zip the smaller size up. :-) I'm smaller busted, but it wasn't too low cut for a work cocktail party. The only thing about it was that the straps were a touch loose. So, I had to make sure my posture was good all night. Otherwise, no complaints.

Classic dress and an amazing fit!
The reviews are correct on this dress, it does run about a size small. I'm a standard size 4 but the 2 was perfect. I did not need to wear a bra, which I love because that's a rare find for me with a bigger chest. It was an elegant dress, I received a ton of compliments on it! My only complaints are that the dress did arrive smelling pretty musty, and I could tell it was really worn out - there was a pretty significant crease around the waist, it was not a huge deal but definitely kept he dress from looking fresh. Overall a gorgeous dress I would love to wear again.

Beautiful dress... if you can fill it!
This dress was pretty and super flattering - the cut & length elongated my short legs, even on my petite frame. That said, the dress did nothing for me up top - it was a beautiful neckline, and I could wear a push-up bra with it, but short of growing about two cup sizes (and probably another band size), the chest area was just loose and I would've had to tape it down to avoid the gaping. But I think even a tiny amount of extra cleavage would have made this dress extra special, and I'm flatter-chested than most women, so I can see this working for many! And props to RTR for being so patient in helping me find a replacement on short notice!

Super pretty and fun dress. Size runs large, I usually wear an 8 but wore this in a 6, with no bra and fit perfectly. Quality material and comfortable.

Loved this dress. It made my first Rent The Runway experience a great one!
This was perfect for a fall wedding. The dress fit comfortably and it was fun to wear. In some lighting, the dress appears to be very dark, but it has a nice sparkle! I am sad to send it back!

On-the-Hudson venue, breathtaking skyline view, good drinks, great friends, what more can I say?
Overall a very beautiful dress—got a ton of compliments! The silhouette and fabric were perfect for a semi-formal wedding. The fit was very comfortable but, a little big in the bust—I could have possibly went with a size 0. It was also a bit longer than expected but, was by no means dowdy. I paired it with simple black suede pumps, studded crystal statement earrings and a minimal diamond necklace. This dress gets a 8.5-9/10 for me!

Nice dress, too much cleavage for me
This is a really pretty dress and I was impressed with the quality. That being said the amount of cleavage was pretty embarrassing. When I put it on I thought whelp, I won't care after a few drinks, but looking back at the pictures I'm like damn self... why didn't I just wear a dress I already own? As a reference point, I'm a 34D/DD depending on the bra. This was my first time using rtr and I think I'll use it again, but I'll be more careful about picking a dress suited for my body!

Romantic, sexy dress for V-Day
I loved this dress! I wore it for a Valentine's Day date with my boyfriend. Rented this in my normal size and it fit perfectly. It was easy to get on and nice that you can wear it with a normal black bra. I wore this to work with a cardigan over it (buttoned all the way up... because this dress is lowwww cut, people!). Very easy transition from day to night. The dress looks darker in real life than it does in RTR's pictures. It almost looked black with a red iridescence. But that was nice for me as I'm not really a fan of wearing red. This little number will take you direct to Cleavage Town, so you may want to consider wearing a camisole underneath if you're going to a more modest affair.

Perfect dress for a night out
I wore this out to a nice dinner and a show with my husband in Vegas and it was perfect. The color is gorgeous and the shimmer isn't too overwhelming or cheesy. Length was perfect for me, awesome since a lot of dresses end up being too short for me. The top half was a bit tight and didn't have much give, but I blame myself for stuffing myself at dinner! Overall I'd definitely rent again.

My son needs to get a shirt to match this dress. Do you think maroon/burgundy is a good match? Or do you have another suggestion? Thanks!
AshleyNovember 6, 2014
I think either would work. The flash in the picture makes it looks a bit more purple than it really is in person, so a maroon/burgundy would look good.

Perfect Christmas time dress with the way it shimmers. Received compliments all night.
True to size. Pushes up "the girls" nicely. Wore this for my work Xmas party and received ooh's and ahh's all night. I was able to try it on in the store so I knew it was going to fit. Comfortable. You can wear a regular bra, the straps won't stick out. I paired with some fun jewelry and simple black heels. Classy but still fun and the way it shimmers is just beautiful. The color was a little different than I expected, it was more of a garnet-purple than red. Sad that I don't get to keep it.

It was the perfect dress for my birthday party!
I loved this dress, it fit great. Made my boobs look awesome! The plunge gives you great cleavage, it might be uncomfortable for girls with a big chest. I was comfortable in the dress all night! I loved how the dress sparkled in pictures too. My friends loved the dress, and I'd absolutely recommend it to others.

Looked like I was wearing a potato sack.
I'm smaller up top and wider in the hips. Usually this puts me between a 0 and a 2. I thought this dress, because it flairs out at the bottom would be perfect to cover my bottom. But somehow everything looked incredibly disproportionate on me. I am petite though so perhaps that is why. I gave it one star because the material was pretty- a wine red with a little sparkle. It would have been perfect for a holiday party.

Beautiful dress! Lots of compliments!
I am usually a size 4 and I wore a size 2 in this dress. The top of the dress was a little big in the size 2. But I still felt amazing in this dress. I hate that my pic doesn't show the true color. The band under the chest hits me at a very flattering place and hides my little tummy. I don't usually show much chest but it was very flattering. I got lots of compliments all NYE. The pic was from the end of the night and I couldn't put my shoes back on. Our NYE party was cocktail attire. I wore the Elizabeth Cole Jet Ombré Bacall Earrings. Check them out, too!

Loved everything about this outfit!
This was my first rent the runway rental and I loved everything about this dress and necklace. The fit was great and true to size and the necklace was a perfect addition to tie the entire outfit together. For a winter event, the material was great. Although I did not wear a bra with the dress I was comfortable the entire night. Overall, this was a perfect dress for a formal dinner. Thank you rent the runway. Can't wait to rent my next outfit!

The subtle shine on this dress made it really stand out!
The fit was great, I liked the way it flared out beneath the waist, giving me the appearance of having hips. The neckline was really unique as well- very flattering.

The 3 C's: Color, cut, and classy!
Great fit, super comfy, and age-appropriate for a twenty-something; I feel the cut could make it look a little young for some women. Everyone loved the fun shape, the neckline (both front and back), and the color. A very fun selection!

The fabric was beautiful.
The 8 was too loose, the straps would have had to be pinned and a normal bra would have shown. The 6 was okay without a bra but a bit tight through the midsection. I wore the 6 but will probably choose a different style for future rentals.

The straps were a bit to big so they bowed out in the back. I had to make minor adjustments to alleviate the problem.

I wore this to a dinner for a bachelorette party and it was fantastic!Very flattering for my figure.
Both sizes fit, but the 12 was a little roomy in the bust so I went with the 10. It was a little tight but I did not feel like I was falling out of the dress. The straps were great so I was able to wear a regular bra with it.

Amazing dress, would gladly rent it again!
This dress definitely runs large. I had to go down a size, and even then it was still a little big. Despite that, this dress was amazing! It was so comfortable and looked great too. It has thick straps so you can still wear a normal bra. There is a good amount of cleavage at the front, but the thick straps and the boning in the front of the dress made it so that I never felt like I was about to fall out of my dress. The bottom came sticking out weird, but I hung it up in my closet for a while, and it settled perfectly. The bottom is defintely poofier than it looks in the pictures. However, I can see this dress looking amazing on everyone! Great dress!
