Fun, flirty LBD!

Size worn: 6
Rented for: Wedding
I ordered both the 4 and the 6 and the ribbing of this dress forced me to wear the 6. It fit pretty snugly, so I would recommend getting a size bigger than you normally are rather than smaller. Overall awesome dress for a wedding! Lots of compliments!

This dress made me feel so playful and elegant at the same time!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress was swishy and playful while still retaining a more sophisticated flair. It was perfect for my college senior formal where I wanted to look grown up with a fun edge. I had a little trouble with the fit since I have a 0 in my waist, but am larger on top., I was still busting out of the 2, but it was manageable for the evening, For this reason I took 1 star off my review. As a very petite woman, the length was perfect for me and not too short or long,

I looked good in this dress ladies lol

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
*Fit: fits like a glove-- tight in the torso with light wire corset to accentuate the waist. The bust area wasn't a huge deal for me since I don't have big boobs (lol) but I can see how it may be an issue if you are C or higher! I did a minor # of tugs and readjustments during the party but that was expected from a strapless dress; in fact, this dress did an amazing job staying in place without suffocating me. *Length: pretty short but there's enough laces and puffs that it actually looks very adorable. *Overall: really really really cute and I wanted to keep it <3 I even checked the maker to see how much the original dress is. *Customer service: now, I originally ordered a different dress but it was too small (and the backup was even smaller)!! Since it was my first time renting from RTR, I totally panicked... but the website was easy to navigate and I managed to order this dress in the only size that was available and then submit a did-not-fit form for the original dress. Anyways... bottom line is, I got this dress on time and it was perfect!

Fun and flirty dress perfect for New Years!

Size worn: 0
Rented for: Party
I loved this dress! I failed to take a full body pic but this dress is awesome. The top fit great and the skirt was so much fun - it swooshed when I walked! It was the perfect party dress and I got so many compliments at the New Years party. Because the skirt is pretty short and poofy I probably wouldn't rent this for a formal wedding or more conservative event.

Size worn: 8
Rented for: Formal Affair
Fit was perfect, wore a strapless bra and made my smaller boobs look great. So flattering. The tulle is really fun and great to dance in. The bodice did rub my rib cage and gave me a bit of a burn but it was worth it. Wore it with no necklace and gold tipped shoes

Good fit but didn't blow me away.

Size worn: 4
Rented for: Party
The zipper runs the entire length of the back of the dress. Prone to get stuck. Mine got stuck and my boyfriend had to spend 15 minutes trying to tear it back down. Wouldn't recommend for someone with large breasts. Tight top that presses down in your breasts creates an unflattering shape.

Beautiful party dress with a pop of tulle!

Size worn: 8
Rented for: Party
I've been eying this dress for awhile, so it was my first choice for a holiday cocktail party. After reading reviews, I went up a size for my backup size. So glad I did! The 6 was great until I got to the very top of the bust and couldn't zip it. I went with the 8, which worked perfectly at the top. The pictures show the gold zipper on the top half of the dress but it actually runs the entire length of the back of the dress. It wasn't a problem, but worth noting. I would have felt more comfortable if the top of the zipper had a hook and eye closure for extra measure. A few people mentioned that the top of the dress flattened them out, but it was quite flattering. The poofy skirt with the little pop of tulle was perfect for a party and so fun to wear. The dress was the perfect length on me as well. Once again I had a fantastic dress and great service from RTR!

This dress runs small. I usually wear a 0 or 2. I ordered the 2 and 4. While both fit, I ended up wearing the 2. It was a bit tight but worked.

Stunning. Looks like a dress from a couture photo shoot.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress was so gorgeous. My favorite part was the skirt, it was very full. If you are hoping to stand out then this is definately the dress to do that while staying sophisticated. It is a very flattering dress, especially for girls with bigger hips and thighs. I would not recommend it for girls with bigger chests The top was a big tight, and the dress does not have any stretch whatsoever so for a second size go up one. The dress is pretty long, about knee length in the back, so I tucked up the bottom tulle layer so it was shorter in the front. Just a warning, the zipper goes all the way down the skirt in the back which seems a little odd but it looks good.

The dress was so elegant and flattering and fun to wear!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Dress looked fabulous, but like some other reviews mentioned, the bust is VERY tight. You could see my bikini top tan lines in the dress. I didn't expect for the skirt of the dress to be so full and swishy, but I'd highly recommend wearing some type of shorts (yoga shorts?) underneath, in case the wind picks up. Friends had to help me keep my dress down in the breeze! This was a very fun dress to wear - super flattering in the chest area. I did wear a scarf to the church part of the wedding to stay more conservative. Overall, a great dress!

Fun and flirty party dress

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I usually wear a 4 or 6 but they were both tight in the bust. The service to have an 8 overnighted was awesome! The 8 ended up being too big in the bust and I wore push-up strapless bra to fill it out. I got many compliments and had a lot of fun with the poofiness at the bottom. Overall fit comfortably with some adjusting at the top, typical of a strapless

Was one of the best dressed besides the bride!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This is a really fun and cute dress. It's not a sexy dress so if you're going for sexy this isn't it but it was perfect for my cousin's early fall wedding where I wanted to look great without showing too much skin. Guest of all ages loved this, even my 89 year old grandma. I'm short and the length was perfect. The 8 was slightly too big on top. I had to tape the top a little but definitely not a deal breaker. I have a full bust and I didn't feel like I was falling out of the dress. Overall, perfect for the occasion!

Wasn't able to wear this dress because it was too small, they didn't have my actual size (4) on such short notice and I thought a size 6 would be too big. So if you get your size in this dress get the free second size as a size up. The 2 was so small I could even get the zipper close to being closed. Luckily I had gotten a second dress just in case.

I ordered the size 0 and 2. My standard size is a 0, but the zipper was broken on the 0 dress so I wore the 2. It wasn't crazy-large by any means; the only difference was that I had to pull up the top once or twice. Not a big deal. Great dress. I would totally rent it again.

The dress fit perfectly, I ended up just wearing a sticky bra. Make sure that you hang it the day you receive it so the tulle has time to fall - when I received it it was bunched up. It was perfect for a wedding, it fit like it was custom made for me.

This dress is absolutely beautiful. It's well made, fun, and sexy. Unfortunately, the bust area is extremely small. I'm a 34D and while the 6 zipped up and fit my waist just fine, it didn't contain my bust. I can't even post the pic because it's just too inappropriate. I didn't opt to order the 8 and decided to go with another dress instead.

The bodice fit great but otherwise the dress did not fit at all. I am 5'10" with very long legs in relation to my torso, and it looked like I was wearing a child's dance outfit... the skirt portion was way too short in ratio to the diameter of the "poof". It would probably be adorable if you are shorter, but I am probably the same height as the model in the picture and it looked absolutely nothing like that on me. I would pass if you are tall.

This dress was amazing. I received many compliments on it. It was a little bit loose up top, but I typically wear a 00, so that might be why. It still stayed up though, because the dress has very good structure from the boning in place. Lovely!

The bodice did not have much flexibility/breathing room so I was a bit uncomfortable after eating anything. But not so tight that my circulation was cut off! When I first put the dress on I thought the skirt was a little too poofy for me, but it relaxed after some time. And any regrets went out the window with the complements I received! I felt like people were running up to me from across the room to talk about my dress...I would definitely rent this dress again.

Felt and looked great!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I really loved this dress! The fit was a little snug, but it kept everything in place and I didn't feel a need to tug at it all night. It definitely runs small!! I cannot stress that enough. I normally wear a 0-2 and needed to wear the 4. There was some general wear and tear to the dress-one of the wires for the boning was poking out a little. Since it was a dark dress and a dark room, this was not an issue and it wasn't enough to poke me or anyone around me. I received a ton of compliments and just felt great. My boyfriend really loved it, too! The overall Rent The Runway experience was a little less than awesome, but generally it was ok. My dresses were shipped to the NJ warehouse instead of my address and I had a bit of an ordeal trying to get them in time for my event. The customer service was really good, but it was very inconvenient to deal with the mishap. I'm just glad that I had given myself enough time to deal with everything in advance. All in all, I will be happy to rent again in the future.
