Didn't fit my body the right way - but the dress is beautiful!

This dress is really beautiful in person, it just didn't fit my body correctly, so I did not end up wearing it.

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 3, 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.

I didn't end up wearing this because it was too big.

It was a very pretty color and different material. The Metallic-ness of the dress was the best part.

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!

Great dress overall.

I typically wear a 2 and even the 0 was too big in the chest. I still wore it though and was just careful. Pretty and unusual color.

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!

Very nice dress. Very flattering, especially in the bust area.

The fit is sexy up top, but the straps are a bit long. The dress poofs out below the waist, but is sexy in a non "in your face I'm trying to be sexy way". Very pretty in person, and lots of compliments.

Very serious cleavage, but overall comfortable and pretty.

The wedding I attended was very catholic, and I had to wear a scarf to feel appropriate going into the church because of the cleavage. However, the color was so pretty. It photographs as very dark but in person it has such a lovely shine to it in the right light. The dress was also very comfortable. I had to wear it with one of my more minimal bras, but didn't have to wear anything special underneath. The dress has some wire in the front to shape the low V, so that might be the issue others were having when they said the dress ran big. If you don't have what it takes to fill it out, it would be very obvious. However, the actual fit of the dress seemed typical to me in terms of how easily it zipped up.

I had a beautiful (and reasonable) dress and got compliments all night long!

The fit was so flattering and synched in really nicely at the waist. The color and texture of the dress gave it such a different and beautiful look. I got so many compliments on it! Only thing is that the neck is deceivingly low, especially if you have a shorter torso like I do. At the same time, the shape is perfect for being low cut but not too revealing!

Beautiful dress, great for curvy women

I can't accurately describe how pretty this dress is in person. Pictures just don't do it justice. It is great for curvier bodies. I was able to wear a regular bra without issue. I wore it for a NYE party and would definitely rent it again for a similar occasion. I did find that it ran a bit big. Even the size 6 that I ended up wearing was just a little large. I didn't even end up trying on the 8 that I rented with it.

I had so many compliments on this dress and it fit my figure perfectly

I wish it had pockets ;) but otherwise this dress was gorgeous. I love the subtle shimmer, the deep red color , the sweetheart neckline, where it fell on my knees. It was a bit heavy material for Las Vegas but I survived just fine in the club dancing.

I wore this dress to my company holiday party and it was perfect for the occasion!

The dress was very comfortable and appropriate for a work event. My only complaint is that the dress was a little big in the waist, as I had to choose the 6 instead of the 4 to make it less tight on my chest. It was the perfect length, flirty but still appropriate. Overall loved the dress and the sparkle!

Exquisite! Stunning color. Perfect for a formal affair.

I wore a size 10, however, could have worn a size 8; it was not available for rental. Consequently, it was a little big in the chest, but I thought, overall, complimented my figure nicely. I liked the conservatively low neckline. The material was excellent quality. I also wore the plantation earrings which coordinated well with my up-do and the neckline.

More black than picture seemed

I loved this dress and only have a few minor complaints. I seemed to be between the 6 and 8 size but went with the 6. The dress was blacker than I expected and the metallic threading throughout is more of a purple. About 3 times throughout the night, the zipper on the back split open! The zipper clasp was still together at the lol but the zipper itself would just split apart, luckily if you lowered the clasp it was able to be zipped back up normally. Overall; it fit well, I didn't have to wear a bra but did wear sticky cups because the dress seemed to smash my chest and I got a ton of compliments!

Gorgeous Color and Great Cut

This dress was a very lovely deep wine color with lighter red sparkle. The pleating and the sweetheart neckline were gorgeous. It is quite long, especially if you have shorter legs. I got a zero, and it was too large in the bust and the waist, and the straps were too long. I would not recommend it for anyone who is very small on the top, because it was a hassle to keep up. I wore this for homecoming and I loved it because it was not at all tacky like some homecoming dresses, it was very sophisticated and elegant.

This dress is perfect for a fall wedding!

I normally wear a 0 - 2 from White House Black Market, and a 4 - 6 from other stores. I was nervous about what size to get, but went off other reviews based closely on my height and weight and ordered the 2 and back up 4. I could have went with a 0 the night of, but that may have been too tight after dinner. So I went with the 2. This dress was so perfect for a fall wedding. I wish I owned it! I was debating on wearing tights, but it looked so cute with them. I also ordered the ombre earrings that others have suggested and they are so heavy you could literally see my lobes being pulled down by the weight. Luckily I had other earrings that looked just as cute. I would definitely rent this dress again. No issues with the condition, etc.

Classic dress, beautiful fabric

I rented this and one other dress to choose from for a work event for my boyfriends company. Happy I went with this one, definitely more conservative than my other choice. The fabric and neckline were fantastic for fall. My only problem isn't really a dress problem, I'm not very busty so I had to wear a push up with extra inserts( pretty much two bras) in order to fill the dress out properly. Other than that it was a fantastic rental.

Flattering fit

This dress runs big as I typically wear a 0 or 2, and the 0 was a bit big in the bust for me. It was very low cut, often showing much more than I wanted to show up top! I thought the dress was very pretty and flattering. However, I was disappointed in the dress's color- the metallic didn't show through with the lighting in the room, so it basically looked black. I would recommend wearing this dress to a daytime, outdoor occasion to show off its color. Will rent a different dress next time!

Great first experience with RTR

Ordered this as my 2nd backup dress but didn't end up needing it. The color is beautiful. The 4 felt loose on me and despite being a 34C, I didn't really fill in the top. A size 2 may have been better all around. Cute length for the shorter ladies out there (I am 5'0").

I got a ton of compliments from other guests at the wedding!

The dress runs large. I usually wear a size 12, occasionally a 10, and I was nervous because there was no 12 available. I had read the reviews that said it runs big and got the 10, which fit great. I'm a size 36D and the cut showed cleavage but not too much. The middle of the dress held me in well and overall the dress was very flattering.
