The dress was perfect for homecoming!
The fit was great, although it is a little busty. I taped a piece of lace behind the v part to make it more sheer!

Flattering and cute!
I loved this dress from top to bottom. The color was gorgeous, the length was perfect (came just above my knee and I'm short), and loved the sweetheart neckline. Just beware if you are full-chested, this might not be the dress for you. I'm only a 34C and it was pretty revealing in that department.

Flattering and glamorous--this dress turned heads and I loved wearing it!
The neckline plunged more on me than on the model, but luckily it wasn't a super conservative wedding. It was also a snug fit in the waist, but still flattering because of the cut. One of my favorite RTR rentals to date!

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.

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!

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!

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!

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!

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.

Dress was great, definitely a lot of cleavage! Had a lovely date.
The dress was definitely on the tight side when I tried it on, until I adjusted my chest. I didn't need to wear a bra, since the dress had great structure. (The neckline has wire in it, which is how it holds its shape.) The dress does make it very obvious if it's not centered properly, though, so be careful how you move and shift when you're wearing it. Had a great night!

Wore to a wedding in July....perfection!
I rented a 10 and 12. I ended up going with the 10 because It was a nicer fit. A lot of people complained about how low cut the dress is, but I disagreed. I didn't think it was too risque. I also don't have a lot of cleavage so not sure if that helped. I received lot of compliments. I would absolutely rent again! PS this was my first rental with RTR.

Semi-Formal!
The dress was so pretty, I loved it! The material was thick and nice. However, I am so small chested that I had to invest in some major support to fill out the dress. Not the best option for the less-endowed ladies.

Loved this dress!
This dress was perfect to wear as a guest at a November wedding. The fabric was beautiful; it definitely has a sparkly embroidery that the pictures don't pick up very well. The fit was perfect for a night filled with fun, food, and dancing! I rented a 6 and an 8. The 6 fit, but I wore the 8 as I was more comfortable with the length (the dress was a little shorter than I would have liked, but not shorter than expected based on other pictures and reviews). I received a lot of compliments on the dress and felt fabulous all night long!

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.

Best Dress Ever!
This was easily the best dress I've ever worn - I had been searching high and low for a dress and this was a godsend! I have to admit I was skeptical based on the photos on the website; like all the other dresses I had seen, it didn't seem like anything special. But when I tried it on, I felt absolutely beautiful! It made me look great and I did not want to take it off at the end of the night! I would definitely rent this again and recommend it to anyone looking for a unique, sophisticated, and edgy dress for a formal event. I wish I could keep it forever!

Perfect wintery, sparkly dress
I rented this dress for a wedding a few days after Christmas. I wanted something dark and sparkly, but not overkill. This dress fit the bill nicely. The subtle sparkles stood out without stealing the show. It gave me some cleavage, so if you are bigger chested, and not comfortable having a fair amount of cleavage I would consider a different dress. But i felt secure, and not like I would be falling out because the neckline is very structured. The skirt flared out a little bit to give me a flattering shape. Overall, another great rental. I was comfortable all night, and able to wear a regular bra! Can't go wrong!

Disappointing fit.
I ordered this as a backup dress in sizes 2 & 4 for a late summer wedding. The 2 was a bit snug around the rib cage but would've worked out okay if the straps hadn't hit my shoulders at an odd angle. The straps hit at a wider point than say, my bra straps would have and it made my upper body appear much wider. The 4 was just too big all around.

It was beautiful, color is stunning and different. Runs a little big... I have a small bust and had to wear a sticky bra with it clipped VERY LOW otherwise you would see it. Perfect for a New Years occasion! Or a wedding right around New Years!

The Perfect Fit (and Flare)
Sorry for the photo, I rented this dress for Christmas Eve service, and forgot to take proper photos. That being said, this dress is beautiful. I wish I had something else to wear it to, because I wanted everyone to see me in this dress. It fit perfectly, and I would highly recommend this dress for people with a larger bust, it definitely flatters the hourglass shape.

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.

Great fall color!
This dress was perfect for a semi-casual wedding. The color is a pretty maroon with a gold sheen to it. I had to steam the skirt part of the dress for it to lay right. I liked the slight 'poof' of the skirt too to hide my hips. The straps didn't bother me dancing, and the sweetheart neckline was just enough skin. If you are pretty tall, this might be too short for you.

Lovely dress! Perfect for a work holiday party.
I loved the neckline on this dress. It was flattering to the bust without being scandalous. The skirt length was fine for a work function, especially with tights. The fabric is pretty, and subtly sparkly. I chose size 8 with 6 as my backup, and ended up wearing the 6. It fit perfectly up until I ate a huge dinner and then I was kind of wishing I wore the 8! I wore it with the Nicole Miller Southern Plantation earrings, which were terrific with this dress. (My coworker in the photo is wearing the Sara Lace Shift by Milly, also from RTR!) This was my first Rent the Runway experience and I enjoyed it. I'm a nursing mom who is bigger than I'd rather post-baby, and hoping not to stay this size forever. Renting a dress was the ideal solution! I will definitely be back.

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!

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.

Perfect party dress
I loved this dress. I wore my usual size--the straps were a little long on me, but as long as I didn't slouch it was ok. Had I gone a size down it probably would have been too snug in the waist. Was able to wear a normal bra, which was nice. The subtle sparkle was really pretty and I got tons of compliments!

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.

This dress was perfect for my work holiday party!
I usually opt to wear black when going out, but the red shimmer of this dress lent it a perfect holiday feel. The neckline cut was low, but since the material was structured it worked out fine. A nice length that worked well with black wedges. As long as you don't eat a big lunch before hand the fit will be perfect!

The color was amazing for a winter wedding!!
The dress fit pretty true to size. My only issue was that it was slightly tight in the chest. I ended up not being able to wear a bra with it which I can't normally pull off but the wiring in the bust of the dress made it work. I received tons of compliments and I felt amazing in it all night!

Sexy!
I wore this dress for what I thought was a dinner date with my Fiancee, but it turned out to be a surprise party for my birthday! I will say, the slit is VERY low. I felt great wearing it for a date night, but a little weird wearing something so low cut in front of my friends and family. regardless, the dress is gorgeous. Material is well made the the boning in the dress holds its shape and prevents nip slips :) I'm short waisted and have issues with dresses hitting me in the right spot, but this one did the trick!
