Pretty, "flowy" dress!
Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
Very orange and very low cut. Get some tape! I usually wear size 4, but needed 2. Tight in the rib cage, but long enough for my short stature. I'm 5'2" and wore 4" strappy gold sandals. Zipper didn't work too well in either size. Otherwise a very pretty dress. For fun I opted for turquoise jewelry instead of gold.

Stunning
Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This was the first time I had used Rent the Runway. I originally ordered an 8L and a 10L because I wanted to wear wedges with the dress. The dresses arrived a day earlier than I expected which was great. When I tried them on, the 8 fit but it was too long even with 4 and a half inch wedges. I called the number they gave and they were able to overnight me an 8R for no additional cost. I was very impressed with the customer service. The plunging neckline was a bit problematic throughout the night since I wore this to my senior prom and I go to a catholic school. The dress gaped open a little when I sat down. It was nothing that fashion tape and standing up extra straight couldn't fix. I would also recommend a slip because in some lighting it was sheer. I got endless compliments and I felt beautiful. I ate a lot and was still comfortable in the dress. In my pictures the dress might look a little bit frumpy, but it is very flowy and fitting in person. The color of the dress is questionable(it is described as red). I included a picture of me next to a girl with a red dress so you can see the comparison. This dress will definitely accentuate your curves and make your boobs look good no matter what your body type is. I would recommend Rent the Runway to anyone and I am excited to rent for my next event!

RTR delivered my dresses on time and in beautiful condition- definitely renting again!!
Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
Loved this dress! It looked elegant but sexy and fit wonderfully for my body type (more curvy). I got compliments from total strangers at the event I attended! The belt below the bust was pretty tight even for a 4, but the chest size was fairly large. If you're small in the bust I wouldn't recommend...it was almost too big for me and generally that's the opposite issue I run into. Overall though, highly recommend!

Amazing color, but an odd fit
Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
The 0 was too tight around the band. (The band falls just below your bust, basically around your rib cage.) It was a bummer because the length was much better. The 2 was too long and too gappy at the bust. Overall, it was one of the few times I've rented and had a bad fit.

This dress fit my curves perfectly without showing bumps or rolls! Great color, fit and length!
Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I loved this dress, the color was beautiful and it fit wonderfully. I ordered the 6R and 8R thinking I'd wear the 8 because i have wide hips and I always try to hide them! But the 6R was perfect. The top in the 8 was a bit too blousy. The dress didn't hug anything I didnt want it too. I had to tape the neckline becuase it was a bit too low for a work affair. I suggest using a pin, not tape. The tape just didn't stick. I'm 5'4 but with 3 inch heels this dress was the perfect length.

Sexy, Sophisticated Cut, Swirly Skirt
Size worn: 12R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress is low cut, but if you have that asset to show off, you'll like it. I wore a VS Deep U plunge bra w/ clear straps and you could not see the bra, but it keep my chest perky (great bra investment). You have to keep stand up straight and keep your shoulders back to look like the photo (if you don't have a long torso), otherwise the top slouches just a bit--not sure what was going on with the structure, but it was not a big deal. However, if I owned the dress, I would tailor the top straps to be a bit tighter at the top of the shoulder. The skirt of the dress was amazing, it swirled just the right amount and draped beautifully going up stairs--I didn't have any problems with people stepping on it. I am 5'9" but wore the R length with 2.5in heels (my date was short).

The look on my dates face when I walked into my sororities formal! It made it all worth it!
Size worn: 10L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This was my first RTR experience so I was a little worried but what a fantastic experience. What caught my eye about this dress was the beautiful color. That tangerine can brighten up any skin tone. I also loved that I would be able to wear a bra with the dress as well so I would have to worry about any wardrobe malfunctions. The dress is very true to size, a little tight under the bust but still extremely comfortable. The length of the dress is perfect. It glides across the ground, which was great because I wasn't worried about constantly stepping on the hem. It was an amazing dress for my sororities formal and helped create an unforgettable night! I'm a true believer in RTR! I'm going to be a customer for life!

Dress was absolutely perfect!
Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This was my first RTR dress. I am 5'10" so I ordered both 0L and 2L. Both dresses fit, but I ended up wearing the 2L for a little extra room to expand from eating/drinking. I got more compliments on my dress that night than I could count! The color is a perfect red-orange and it is incredibly flattering. The length was perfect with 3 inch heels. I wanted to keep the dress on forever and didn't want to send it back. I'm in love!

Too tight around the rib cage so go 1 or 2 sized larger.
Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I typically wear 2 or 4, but I couldn't even zip it up. The area around the rib cage is too tight so I quickly returned the 2/4 sizes and got 6/8, and ended up finally fitting into size 8!! Thanks to Rent The Runway for sending bigger sizes the very next day. Beautiful dress & bright color that pops out amongst other dull or black dresses.- got many compliments.

This dress was gorgeous & i loved it. Fit-wise, it was a bit loose in the back area, i used a lot of fashion tape to secure it & it was fine. I am 5'3" and the dress was long, but once i put on my 5" inch heels all was okay. I would wear this dress again but would probably try the 0 to see if the top fit better.

Great dress, a little heavy at the beading section.
Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
With my heels it was the perfect length. As a brand new mom, it fit perfectly...I was able to wear a bra and the dress was heavy enough to make me feel like I didn't have to suck in my stomach. The beading was a bit heavy but if you can find the size to fit under your chest, it will be supported.

Perfect Red Dress
Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I am so in love with this dress. I was really worried about the length, I'm 5'4 and it's sort of confusing deciding what to get in a floor length dress but I settled for an R and when I put it on with a little under 4 inch heels it was exactly right. I felt so amazing walking in this dress with the skirt flowing around me. I did use a little fashion tape to keep the top from revealing too much but if it wasn't a wedding I probably wouldn't have bothered. I got tons of compliments but the best was as I walked off the dance floor the artist doing a live painting of the reception yelled at me "Red dress! I got you in the painting!" I looked and sure enough, there I was :)

Size worn: 12R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The dress is a gorgeous orange-red. I probably could have gone down a size but the 12R worked and was comfortable, the length was perfect with 4 inch heels. This dress might be a problem for some because it is low cut BUT because there is gathered fabric over the bust area, it is very easy to use tape.

This dress was amazing to wear, it flowed beautifully.
Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I ordered this for a black tie wedding in NYC in June. I ordered the 4 and the 6. I am usually a 4 but at 6 months pregnant i wanted to get the 6 as well just in case. The dress is bump friendly. I tried the 4 and it did fit but it was quite tight around my rib cage so for comfort's sake i wore the 6. It is loose around the belly so I guess I could wear the 6 at a later stage in pregnancy too. But by the end of the night, after the dinner and everything, the 6 was even tight around my rib cage. So i was happy to get out of it. Be aware that as others have commented, it is very low cut, but I used tape and it worked fine. In general, I loved this dress and felt fabulous in it, as it showed off my bump nicely. Not too much, but just enough. Would definitely recommend this dress. It's beautiful.

I got so many compliments on this dress!!
Size worn: 14L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Pros: This dress is gorgeous!!! Excellent quality and the color is amazing. It was perfect for my niece's wedding. It's very flattering and extremely comfortable with just the right amount of bling without being over the top. I wear either a 14 or 16 depending on how a dress is cut and the 14L was great. I wore 3" heals with a small platform and it was perfect. If you're not going to wear a high heal get the R. Cons: Extremely low cut! I was at a family wedding so I didn't want to be totally hanging out. A small pin inside and lots of Hollywood tape did the job. It was slightly loose at the shoulders. If I owned the dress, I would have had the shoulder seam pulled up a bit and that would have helped. It wasn't that big though that the straps slid down.

Stunning dress for a memorable prom night.
Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was absolutely perfect for prom. Pros: Gorgeous, high quality gown for a low price. The color is stunning and is an orangey red. I also loved the hemline-- it was flowing and gorgeous. It has great movement to it and I got complements on the dress all night long. Cons: I am normally a 00 and took a risk by ordering the 0R in this dress. It was VERY long, even with heels and you cannot use fashion tape to hem it. I tried, and you could see the tape from the front of the dress because the top layer is so sheer. It fit very well as the waistline where the beading is but the top was HUGE. I had to pin it and use fashion tape. Despite it being too long and large in the bust, I LOVED this dress. RTR was very fast in sending me the dress and returning it was a breeze (though I was sad to send it back because I loved it so much!). I will definitely be using RTR again in the future.

Having a beautiful dress for my senior prom!
Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
Pros: Gorgeous color, tasteful beading, and the skirt has beautiful movement (be aware that the regular length skirt would have dragged on the ground for me if I hadn't worn heels with about an inch of platform in them, so it's long) Cons: The waist band runs rather small; and the way that the bodice is constructed means that it will gap if you relax your shoulders (be prepared to use liberal amounts of tape!) Also, even if the dress fits, you'll need someone to work hard to zip you into it, because the zipper gets very easily caught in the lining. I rented this dress for my senior prom, and because of the waistband not fitting I had to size up, which resulted in things looking a little bit off because the top was too big for me. However, this dress is gorgeous and RTR was great at getting it to me on time and making the return process easy to follow.

STYLIST REVIEW!
Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I loved the color of this dress. Great for all four seasons! It was a very easy fit and would work for almost every body type. It was slightly more cleavage than I usually like but still a flattering dress. If someone is larger than a C cup I would recommend sizing up for more coverage in the bust. The material is light but isn't too clingy! I tried on the 2L but usually would be the 2R!

a fabulous dress that looks as great as it feels.
Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: True to Size

The thing I loved most about this dress was its vibrant color. It felt unique and like it stood out, but not flashy. The length for me was perfect with about 4" heels. I had read in almost all of the reviews before I ordered the dress warning about the top being baggy so I was prepared with a garment adhesive and with that I was all set. The neck line is beautiful and the skirt flows beautifully. Overall it is a fabulous dress that looks as great as it feels. My experience with RTR was just wonderful and I definitely plan on using them again!

Dress was unfortunately a bust for me
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
[Disclosure: At the time I tried on this dress, I was 28 weeks pregnant and weighed 154 lbs.] I ordered this dress for a black-tie wedding when I was 28 weeks pregnant, since it was listed as "bump-friendly." Unfortunately, in order for the rest of the dress to accommodate my baby bump, I had to size up to an 8. Even though the dress worked with my bump, the bust ended up being huge (even with my larger-than-usual pregnancy bust) so I could not wear the dress. Thankfully RTR was awesome and overnighted me a couple of backup dresses, one of which worked perfectly.

This dress is really lovely - I ultimately decided to wear another rental option because I decided it looked a bit too much like another dress I'd worn. The material and color of the dress is just beautiful. As others have mentioned, it does run a bit snug in the name area (just below the chest). However, the actual chest area runs a bit loose. I would have ended up using fashion tape to secure it. I would definitely advise ordering a size smaller that your normal dress size.

Super versatile - could be dressed way up hair or dressed down with sandals and casual. I went with somewhere in the middle and loved it as much as my husband. Wore 4 inch heels and this just touched the ground. Used fashion tape to keep the top in place. Also, very breathable but a little see-through in the skirt in bright sunlight, had to toss on a shapewear skirt to help that.

Great dress overall. Only problem was that it was a little long - I wore 4in heels with it. I didn't need to wear a bra. You will definitely need fashion tape. Zipper is hard to pull up so you will probably need someone else to do it for you.

I rented the 14 and 16 for a formal event. While they both may be "true to size" at the waist, the bust was entirely too small and would not zip. I am a 38D cup. The midsection is extremely unforgiving.

Loved the feel of this dress. I felt like a million bucks in it. I was a little self conscious in the chest area and had to use the fabulous double sided garment tape, but it did the trick. I received comments all night long in this dress. The color is very rich and looks great with gold jewelry.

The color was gorgeous, but there was too much fabric at the shoulders. I am busty, and there was no amount of tape that was going to hold everything in! It also ran too long for me, even with 4 inch heels.

Wore it to a friend's black tie wedding. I am always between a 6 and an 8 (wide shoulders but small chest). While 6 was really tight around the chest and waist, the 8 was much too large in the bust and loose could fall off my shoulders easily. Over all, once I got into the 6, I was very happy. It looked gorgeous and I had a great time dancing in at the wedding.

Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I am between a 10 and 12 -- true pear shape with a top that's actually closer to an 8 -- I rented this dress in a 10 because it looked like the skirt would be large enough to accommodate my hips. It was my back-up dress for a black tie wedding and tried it on first to 'get it out of the way.' Honestly, from the second I put it on I felt like a million bucks. The skirt covers a multitude of sins and the top shows just enough cleavage to be sexy, but not scandalous. I got tons of compliments on the dress -- especially the color. It's a really stunning red-orange in person. I do think there was a bit too much fabric up top, though. Someone with a bigger bust would have filled out the excess better, but then might be showing a bit too much cleavage (depending on how comfortable you are with that). I am a C and the shoulders would slip as I was dancing. I used double sided tape to hold the front fold closed. I couldn't figure out how to tape the dress to my chest and lay right at the same time, so I abandoned that effort. My bra tried to make an entrance many times because of the plunging neckline. Something to keep in mind!

Ran a bit large in the chest, beautiful color and was plenty long enough.

wish I could have made it work
Size worn: 12R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I tried this on in the showroom in the 14 and the 10 with no luck but since i LOVED the color I hoped the 12 i ordered would fit perfectly. And well, it almost did... the deep v meant a traditional bra wasn't going to cut it and trying to wrangle the girls into an appropriate position with an adhesive bra proved fruitless. I think in the end the top was just a little too big/blousy to stay put on me through a whole night of dancing. Thankfully my back up dress was a better fit.

Not for me
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large

One of my orders wasn't available so they selected this for me instead. I found it gaped in the chest so I didn't wear it.

The dress was just perfect! Amazing color!
Size worn: 14R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress fit really well and was figure flattering. I have curvy hips, but was able to have a defined waist without the dress being too snug. Get some fashion tape though. I did spend part of the evening making sure my bra wasn't showing. Overall, I loved the dress and got a lot of compliments!

Beautiful color - bad fit.
Size worn: 14L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I loved the color and the fabric, but the fit was just all wrong. It was enormous in the bust and even using pins and tape, it hung awkwardly and made it my chest look huge and saggy - not the best look for a senior prom.
