Very pretty silhouette
Size worn: 18WR
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
Runs small. Very fitted through waist and hips - inside liner is a bit smaller than the dress. My problem with the dress was the top. It seemed a little stretched out - and I'm already a 38D, but it felt like someone stretched it. It didn't lay flat across the top and bunched awkwardly. I was constantly adjusting. I also thought it was a little short. I'm 5'6" and even with flats on (towards the end of the evening), my ankles were pretty much showing. I got a lot of compliments, but overall, I wasn't overly crazy about this dress. But Rent the Runway service was top notch, as always.

Comfortable AND Beautiful!
Size worn: 16WR
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress to a black tie wedding. I can't even keep count of how many compliments I received. It really does hide any and all imperfections, and it's comfortable! I did wear control top undergarments, I just feel it smoothed everything out. This dress definitely does run small, and I'm 5'6 and with heels the dress would have been a bit too short. Overall, i HIGHLY recommend this dress for your next fancy occasion. Also, RTR's customer service keeps me coming back for more. Top notch from start to finish!

Style and comfort
Size worn: 20WR
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
Very comfortable dress, low cut but contours to the body nicely and holds everything in. Normally wear an 18, had to go with one size up. Zipper is hard to get up as it has somewhat hidden in fabric.

Fantabulous Dress!
Size worn: 18WR
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I loved the dress and I received many compliments. The wiring inside the dress on the vertical bust lines had penetrated the fabric and I had to manually adjust it to avoid my skin being pierced. I wore a strapless bra with the dress since I am a 38DD. Though I am only 5'4, I wear very high heels so I would have preferred the longer length. This was my first time renting and it was a great experience so I would definitely rent again. By the way, my friend in the picture is also wearing one of your dresses.

Soooo many compliments!
Size worn: 18WR
Overall fit: Small

Wore this dress to be the Emcee of a show. The fit was slightly small in that I typically wear a 16 and the 18 was my choice, but not excessively so. I did find myself adjusting the rouching (sp?) each time I stood up, but the dress was very comfortable. I had it on for two shows, so almost an entire day and I still didn't want to take it off when I was done. I did end up wearing a foundation garment, but even with my 38 D bust, I could have gotten away without wearing a bra if I wanted to. So many compliments...if I had a dollar for each one I could rent several more dresses. Speaking of...the customer service and entire process was so amazing that not only will I rent again, I already have another dress coming for my company holiday party this week!

Rent the Runway offers AMAZING customer service. Before & even after the event I felt like a queen!
Size worn: 16WL
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
"Hourglass Perfection" is not a stretch..this dress hid problem areas and accentuated curves that I didn't even know I had. I received soooo many compliments. If you are a 5'6 like me, opt for the longer length. This dress was also excellent material. Very classy. My personal stylist also answered questions that I had, and even sent me an additional size since I was concerned about the fit since this was my first time getting a RTR gown.

A beautiful and very forgiving dress!
Size worn: 18WR
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
It has a lot of room in the bust, if you don't have some large "girls" you will have trouble filling it out. I normally wear a 16 or 18 and wore the 18 and it fit almost perfectly. I'm 5' 6" and it was a little long for me, so if you're short it will be long.

It's a beautiful dress and very sexy, but a little raggedy at the top.
Size worn: 22WR
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The top was really uncomfortable because the boning was poking up out of the fabric. I actually had to wear another dress (one of my own) because I could not make it 5 minutes in the dress. . Also, it needed a lot of airing out due to strong chemical odors.

A pretty good dress.
Size worn: 18WR
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
If you DON'T have an hourglass shape already, this dress doesn't look as good as it does on the model. I'm a pear- my bust is small, so I didn't feel super great in it (and thus I chose a different dress to wear to the wedding). It didn't look BAD, but it completely flattened any bust I had so it made my chest look smaller. I've lost a good deal more weight since I've tried it on, I'd try it again, but I'd definitely have a backup.

Very disappointing Icould not get it to zip up.
Size worn: 18WR
Overall fit: Small

Very disappointing I got 2 sizes larger than what I wear because it was all they had in stock for my event. When the dress arrived I could not get it to zip up. I ended up having to go out and find a whole new dress before my event.

Comfortable and classy
Size worn: 16WR
Overall fit: True to Size

I rented this for a formal-ish party and it was very comfortable. The material was surprisingly cheap-feeling to me, for the cost of the rental. That said, its stretch and comfort was unbeatable for my event.

super cute sexy dress
Size worn: 18WR
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I am 5'6" and usually wear a 16. I got the 18 and it fit but I wasn't extremely happy with the fit. I felt it was a bit short if I were to wear heals and being that I got the bigger size I still felt it was a bit snug. Super cute and I think I will try it again size up and length long.
