Beautiful, quality dress
This dress is beautiful and I loved it! I'm 5'4" and it was a little longer on me than I was hoping, but I still loved it. The only thing I'll mention is that the dress is very heavy. It's very well made but there is a lot of fabric and I was surprised at the weight of the dress.

I loved the look and feel of this dress, but it did not accommodate my natural 32FF/G bust.

Everybody kept saying that I looked like a celebrity!
When I first got my package in the mail and opened it up, I thought, ehh its nice but it didnt wow me. Once I put the dress on, accesorized it and dolled up, I was in love! This dress definately makes you feel sexy! I loved the see through ruching with the light contrasting fabric underneath. The touch of beading on the neckline is like built in Jewelery. The dress is almost knee length so you still feel classy even though on top the dress is all sexy! Im a mom to 2 boys and am very self concious about my stomach. I opted to wear spanx underneath. Even the the ruching on the dress does hide lumps and bumps it is tight fitting. So if you have tummy issues, spanx is definately required! I loved this dress!

Fun dress!
This was my first rental from the website. It arrived exactly on time. I am thankful for ordering two sizes as I needed the larger size. This dress is super tight - I would recommend Spanx for even a size zero to keep the curves nice and flattering. I wore this with a really fun pair of black heels and Betsey Johnson earrings. Will definitely rent again!

This dress is more of a special occasion dress.
This dress has rhinestone beading around the neckline and has a mesh overlay over a more fitted layer underneath.

I didn't wear it.
I didn't wear this dress because the zipper did not lay flat enough against my back so I wasn't a fan, however, luckily I also ordered another dress at the same time. My advice, if you have a chance to order a backup for $25, it is well worth it!!

My first RTR experience and it was fun from beginning to end! Definetly a returning customer!
Wore the dress for my husbands holiday work party. Had some trouble with the zippers once the dresses were on (tried both sizes wondering if it was just too tight) but ended up just zipping it up before and wiggled in since the material had some give! I did wear spanx for a more seamless look and to help hide some baby bump leftover :) I kept my jewelry pretty simple as I felt the dress was "jewelry" enough. The dress was super comfortable for dancing too! I got a bunch of compliments and really felt beautiful (and smart for trying RTR)! My sister and another friend that went to the party also wore RTR dresses and they each looked fabulous as well. My first RTR experience was so fun from the beginning - looking for a dress, to end - the ease of return! I will definetly be using RTR again !

Hot dress! I 'm tall with a booty and it hugged the curves in alll the right spots. The mesh is more sheer over the dress than what the picture shows making it extra sexy in real life!

I got a lot of complements but it was very uncomfortable and the bra felt like two wires in the front. "Looked good but didnt feel good"

My fiance kept telling me how gorgeous I looked the whole night!
This was my first time renting from RTR. I wore this dress to the Nutcracker, along with the Nicole Miller Southern Plantation Earrings, and I must say that this dress is fabulous! My fiance loved it on me and kept telling me how I was the most beautiful woman at the theater! The dress itself is GORGEOUS. Very stretchy material. I ordered sizes 2 and 4, with the 2 fitting much better than the 4. I feel like I could have squeezed myself into the 0 though--I found myself constantly pulling up the dress throughout the night, and I felt like the bottom half of the dress could have been more snug. The dress also came to the middle of my knee, which for my height, well, it could have been a little shorter. It still looked great though! For reference, I am 5' 2", 32C, with a 26" waist and 36" in the hips.

Flattering and hugs all the right places
This dress is very flattering but does not have any stretch to it. I can usually get away with wearing a 6 but I am glad that I ordered a size up for this one. I got many compliments on how this hugged my curves. LOVED THIS DRESS

I absolutely loved this dress! Super comfortable and flattering. I recommend!
This dress was a great fit, and super comfortable! I originally ordered an 8 but after re-reading the reviews decided to go a size up and was able to make the switch easily chatting with an online chat agent. The 8 probably would've fit, but I wanted to be safe given it was so fitted. The 10 was a tiny bit big up top, but definitely not a deal breaker. A lot of the reviews suggested wearing Spanx, but they are just too uncomfortable for me so I went without. I felt that the design of the dress and the ruching covered up what it needed to. I got a ton of compliments from people and the dress photographs well. I highly recommend for a formal event or wedding!

Perfect. Loved it. .
I wore this to a Black & White wedding. I was thrilled because I was the only one who wore a dress that was both colors. I just had my 4th child, so it hugged in all the right places. The 6 was not available so I oplted for the 8. It shifted slightly & was a little too long for me, so I hemmed with some double faced tape. Great dress, rent it!!! Does run small - so go a size up!

Very vampy!
I received so many compliments when I wore this dress. The details at the top of the bust were gorgeous and I loved the metallic under-layer. Material was very substantial and slimming. I have a large bust (34G) and I had to go for the larger of the 2 sizes because of it. Definitely a great dress for an hourglass shape.

This dress is hot!
I am in between a size 8 and 10. Size 10 wasn't available. The 8 fit but hugged every curve and was really tight...i have a big butt and wider hips. I am 5'8 and i loved the length. I didnt end up wearing this bc i fell in love with my back up dress. It was much more comfortable and flattering. The best thing i did when deciding between the 2 was taking a pic in each. when a flash hits this dress, it looks completely different. i think if i would have got the 10, it would have been a winner. its hot!

I rented this dress for NYE and received lots of compliments. Im 5'3 and the dress was a little long but it worked. The style of the dress made me look a little bigger in certain areas but overall I was quite impressed with the experience. Thank you RTR!!

Nice dress, but nothing to write home about.
I'm usually a size four, but I had to go up a size b/c I thought it ran small in the waist, hip, thigh area. The six fit much better overall, but then was roomy up top (I'm a 34B). Overall, this dress did the job, but it's not my favorite. Also, the dress was a little worn out... the ruching was starting to come a little loose.

Absolutely loved this dress and my bangles! Everything came right on time- excited to rent again!
This was my first time renting from RTR and I can't wait to rent again! I absolutely loved this dress- it fit me like a glove! The bangles were the perfect accessory- they were gorgeous and so much fun! I'm usually a size 4 in dresses so I rented the 4 and the 6- thank god I did because I ended up wearing the 6. I would recommend renting a size up bc boutique sizes do run a size smaller. This dress was sexy without being too short or revealing- very flattering.

Very Slimming
I usually wear an 8, but I had to have the 10. Honestly, I probably needed the 12. It was very tight and the boning in the 10 didn't lay well on me, but it photographed well. The material is very forgiving and it's stretchy, so that made it kinda comfy. I really loved it, but wish I had the 12 to try on considering it was so small.

First Love
This dress was the first dress I rented from Rent the Runway. It is my first love. It fits sexy on the body and very well made. I wore it at a gala and I fit in with movie stars that attended. That's what makes this company great. You too can look like a movie star by renting this dress. It is a show stopper.

Love this dress- and so did everyone else! I am very small chested and although I wore one, I could've gotten away without a bra.The beading on top is gorgeous! i was worried that I was too short and the dress would be long on me, but it hit above the knee. I would love to rent it again.

This dress was really great and I got a ton of compliments! The bust was a little large for me (I am a 34 B/C) but I did not fall out of it and I do not think anyone noticed--the right bra would have given me all the support I needed. This dress was perfect for the black tie wedding I went to and I would definitely rent again!

This is my frist dress that I rented and let me say the experience was wonderful! Its an extremely flattering dress. I am petite so it was below my knees but I thought that made it a little more dressy for the ball I went to. This might sound funny but its so fitted that I didn't even have to wear spanx with it! I received soo many compliments.

Absolutely loved this dress. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is I felt the bust was a bit large. I ordered a 2 and a backup 4, but I should have ordered a 2 and a backup 0. I think the 0 would have fit me much better. Otherwise, it's STUNNING!
