It was a little larger than a standard size 4, mostly in the top.

This was my first Rent the Runway experience and I look forward to having another! I wore this dress for a Roaring 20's party on New Years Eve. I rented both the dress and necklace shown in the picture and it was perfect for the occasion. It made finding my outfit a breeze!

Loved this dress, perfect for a wedding in late September!
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I loved this dress! When it first arrived, my usual size (6) fit a little weird, and I was preparing to contact customer service for a last minute backup. But I tried the 4 just in case, and it fit perfectly. I'm not sure if the dress runs large, or if it's because I've been working out a lot. It is a snug dress, and my dancing was a little restricted, but it was a wedding, after all! I received lots of compliments, especially on the velvet.

Helped me survive a 1920s theme wedding.
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
The dress is ok. It served its purpose of blending in among the flapper dresses around me without making me feel like I was at customs party. I typically wear a 4, but the underline keep moving up weirdly, therefore I opted for the larger version. Not bad, I think it looks nice but would not buy it or rent it again.

The fact that it was new years!

It fit great and was very comfortable- the only thing is that the lace tends to rise up and expose the gold silk slip underneath, so the hem looks uneven.

It was very comfortable and a safe pick for a fall/winter wedding. The straps were a bit too long though.

I bumped into an old college friend while wearing this dress - a great moment I will remember.
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress is so easy to wear and extremely flattering. The top is roomy enough for a larger chest and is extremely flattering. The cut creates the illusion of a narrower waist and I thought the length of the dress was great for a taller girl who wants to show off some leg!

This dress was perfect for the 1920s themed wedding I attended at a 1917 California mansion!
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this dress for a 1920s themed wedding. I asked the RTR stylists for a recommendation, was given several and settled on this dress. I was pleased with it! I usually wear a 6 but based on the other reviews I ordered a 4 and a 2. I am glad I did that - the 4 was still big in the bust area/straps too long. The 2 fit better - a little snugger in the hips and butt area but fit up top much better. I am petite - 5'1" and I thought this dress looked fine on me. I also got the necklace in the picture which I liked. Overall I was extremely happy with my RTR experience - helpful stylists (they even recommended the red lip I did), very nice selection, everything on time and easy. This was my first time and I will be renting again!!

This dress ran a little big. I am normally a size 4 and wore the size 2 which fit perfectly. Top runs big, so I recommend it for larger chests.

The neckline and design were appropriately conservative for a semi-formal work function.
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I thought this dress was lovely but wasn't actually able to wear it. Overall, the dress was very conservative but the length was much too short for a tall girl like me. I was disappointed that I needed to return it but would recommend it for someone 5'6" or shorter looking for a modest (but pretty) party frock.

I wore this to the company holiday party - which tends to be conservative - and it fit in perfectly
Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is perfect, especially for an event that could be casual, or formal. I paired the dress with high black heels, pearls, and a simple updo and it looked gorgeous. The dress runs large, especially if you are petite and have a small bust. The 0 size had some extra room all over (and I wore my most padded bra and spanx) too. The contrast between the velvet top and tiered lace bottom was really flattering - it disguised any bumps. The straps were also a bit loose - I could tell my bra straps were showing sometimes. Anyway it's a lovely dress, classy, and perfect for the party, but I wouldn't rent it again.

Very flattering

This dress was great. It also had a wonderful fit that is very flattering. The top is a little big, and I have a large bust. While I was dancing the straps kept falling down. I would recommend this dress, it's a perfect dress for this season. I got so many compliments.

The picture of me with friends in front of the church. There were pumpkins everywhere! Very 'fall!'
Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress to a wedding in October with black patent leather pumps and strands of pearls (similar to what the model wears but they were longer and fewer strands). Anyway, I received many compliments on the dress and the velvet top made it appropriate for the black tie wedding. I belted it with a skinny black patent leather belt because even the zero was a bit roomy. It definitely runs large, so I recommend sizing down one or two if you're considering renting this. Other than that, it's a winner.

Cute but certain angles frumpy
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I liked this dress and even took into accounts other peoples reviews but it ran VERY large. I wore it to my work christmas party, so I loved that it was elegant and not too revealing. Also, I noticed that in certain angles the dress made me look slightly frumpy, while at other times I looked normal. Didn't like that too much.

A Bit Large on Top
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I loved this dress and it looked great, but the top was much bigger than expected. It would be good for large chested women. The dress fell just above the knee and then length felt very comfortable.

Too big to wear
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
This dress was much larger than I expected. I rented a 0 and a 2 thinking that the 2 would fit, and considering getting a 4 as a backup size instead. I went with the 0 and it was looser in the top than I wanted by a lot. I might wear it to a date tonight, just because I have it, but it is definitely not making it to my event with me. It was also much higher cut in front than I thought it would be. I am pretty busty--32C and usually get a fair amount of cleavage in most dresses, but nothing in this one. Would recommend for someone in their 40s or someone younger to a family or work event, but not for a socialite going to a cocktail party.

Looks great on the hanger--but not so much on me. The skirt was too snug and the top too loose. It felt like the velvet top should have had a bit of lycra in it. It also seemed as if should have had some kind of belting--looked like it was missing something.

Loved this dress! It does run a little on the big side (Im normally between a 4 and 6, and wore the 4 very comfortably), but it's pretty short if you're on the taller side. I paired it with a white blazer, tights and ankle boots and it was great for a night out, but I definitely wouldnt have worn it in front of my boss at a holiday party!

I wish there were more reviews prior to my rental so I knew it was larger than true to siz e. In general it is a comfortable dress and pretty, but nothing spectacular. Its light and easy to pack.

This was my second choice dress, and I ended up wearing it to a formal wedding and I loved it. It does run a size larger than true to size. The top is a little big so those with narrow shoulders should size down. I thought the dress was elegant and comfortable to wear. I should be a size 10 according to the chart, but the 6 fit me though I ended up wearing the 8 because I felt the 6 was too snug. The 8 had room to spare and I could zip it up myself where as the 6 I had to have someone help with the zipper. I would recommend this dress.

I agree with the other review, this dress runs a little big. I usually fit between a 2 & 4, and I almost wish I had tried out a 0. however, it did give me a little wiggle room, and other than that, I really loved it - I got many compliments on it at the wedding I wore it to, and am thinking of buying it.

I was stopped several times during the evening with people complimenting me on my dress! It looks great but the zipper was tough to get zipped - had to go to a neighbors house to do so!
