Runs large, I'm a 4 but I should have ordered a 2. This was a back up dress so I didn't end up wearing it anyway. Although it's beautifully crafted, the chest was too saggy for me.

Beautiful fabric and color

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This is such a pretty dress. I wore it to a fundraiser gala and loved how the lace overlay flowed. It has a slight stretch and was very comfortable all night. If I were purchasing this dress, I would have had the straps shortened - the bodice was a little too long for my torso and it bunched a little in back. I used fashion tape to shorten the length as it was too long even with heels, but I am short and this is a common problem. I loved the dress and the rental process. I will definitely rent again.

Wore this for my last sorority formal, and got complements all night long!

Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress fit pretty well overall-- if you happen to be like me and fairly small chested, I'd recommend a strapless push-up bra to fill out the chest, otherwise it might look a little odd. The dress is really, really easy to move in, and it's incredibly comfortable (aka perfect for a night of dancing)! The fabric doesn't stretch though, so keep that in mind. Because I broke my foot and was stuck in a walking cast (my reason for picking a long dress was to cover the cast), I couldn't wear heels and as a result the dress did drag a little as I was walking around, but I did get it in a long so that wasn't a surprise (the regular would have been too short though). Even if I could have worn heels, they would have still needed to be low heels so that the hemline was still long enough. I absolutely loved this dress, and I got so many complements in it!

Beautiful Dress!

Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I loved the dress it was perfect for prom! One thing to note is that the dress is actually all blue, which is not how it appears in the preview, also the dress runs a little long but nothing a pair of heels can't fix! But overall, the dress fit great and was especially fitted to my smaller torso.

Came in great condition, comfortable to move in

Size worn: 10R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
Wore this to prom! I didn't want to blend in with everyone else; it's all glitter, rhinestones, and bright colors there. This definitely stood out! It's a gorgeous dress, and also very comfortable. In person the lace looks dark blue, but in pictures it appears lighter. It would probably look best on someone with a long torso. I probably could have gone with a size 8, the torso was a bit big and there was an awkward spot where it puckered in the back. It didn't look the best for my body type, but it is a stunning dress.

Great company and a great cause!

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress does not look like it does in the model! I'm sorry I didn't have a picture in better lighting but it is actually a dark blue with a shimmery lace overlay. I wore 5 inch heels and the dress was still dragging. It kept getting caught under chairs, on my shoes, etc. However, I was extremely comfortable and it was a very appropriate dress for a work fundraiser. When I first tried it on I was extremely disappointed due to the variation in color from the picture and the weight of the material. I initially tried on the 8R but it was WAY too big so I went with the 6R. I was contemplating wearing another dress because this dress is extremely heavy for a spring event. But given how comfortable this dress is, I went with it!

Cheap looking & awkward fit

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
The dress looked beautiful in the pictures online but when I got it it looked completely different. The lace didn't look like it does online it has a gold metallic shimmer to it which made it look cheap. The last dress I ordered was from the same designer in a 10 and fit perfectly I got this in a 10 too without a backup size thinking it would fit like the last. The dress sat weird on me and was at least two sizes too small in the bust.

Black Tie Wedding

Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I LOVED this dress!! I had originally ordered a different dress, but my backup size ended up not being available! I got an email as soon as they knew they wouldn't be able to send it and they allowed me to select this as my backup. This one ended up being the better fit, and I was VERY happy with it! I got so many compliments, and I was in love with the material! It has a silver thread in it to make it shine, it is even better in person than in the photos! Because of the emergency switch, the 4L was what they had to send me, which was understandable. If I wore it again, I would do a regular or short (depending on my shoe agenda), I did end up having to wear high shoes and it was still a tad long. It's also structured for a fuller bust, so if you're smaller be sure you have undergarments with some extra padding to fill it out! Overall, I was really happy with my experience, especially how accommodating they were for the emergency, and will definitely be using Rent the Runway for the future!!

Worn to a formal graduation event

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
First, the dress is all blue, bluer than in the picture, but beautiful. Straps a little loose in the back but nothing a little dress tape didn't fix (strapless bra totally hidden which was a plus). I'm usually between a 4 and a 6, both would have fit, but the smaller dress had less of a problem with the loose straps. Worn with 3" heels, it was a little long but not bad. I must say I struggled a little with the volume and mini-train in the back, but it was the right choice!

Comfortable, great fitting and very easy to wear. It would be a perfect length with 2.5 inch heels or higher. I wore 1.5 inch and it was a tad too long.

I loved this gown, but it bunched up in the back a bit. I have a short torso so I run in to this problem a lot. Looked perfect in front, and almost perfect in back. I rented two dresses & my husband voted for the other one. Really liked this one though!

It was nice to have a full length gown at a black tie event

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
The dress is a little on the loose side, which can be nice because it means being comfortable all night. It is LONG and going down stairs or walking through crowds of people or dancing on a crowded dancefloor meant people stepping on the dress quite a bit - not ideal. I'm 5'7" and I wore 3 inch heels - maybe this dress is better for model-tall ladies. Lots of compliments though.

I got a ton of compliments on this dress. Even though I am 5'9", I knew I would be wearing lower heels (2 inches) so I went with the regular length and it was perfect. The color is a beautiful deep blue and stands out in a black tie setting.

Gorgeous color

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was not my first pick but they sent me some back ups since my choice was not available. Amazing color, very comfortable. I am typically a 4 but the 2 fit like a glove. The dress was a little bit long for my 3 inch heels and the buckle of my heels kept getting caught in the lace at the bottom, that was annoying but it you plan ahead and wear a "sleeker" shoe there should be no issues! I wore a front sticky bra with this dress because you can not wear a regular one. Loved it.

Pretty dress with unique design,but not unbelievably stunning.

Size worn: NONE
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
This was my first choice for a formal photo shoot for my wedding anniversary. I was a little nervous that it would be too bright/shimmery based on some other reviews and photos, but I was pleased with the color--blue but deep enough that it still looked classy. I am usually either a definite 8 or a definite 10 in sizes and the 10 wasn't available for backup size so I was a little nervous that I wouldn't be able to zip it up in the back. I run heavier in the hips and belly and the 8 fit pretty perfectly without also looking like I was squeezing into the chest area, so if you're on the smaller side of a 10 and can still squeeze yourself into some 8s, I would recommend the 8. I do not have a bra on in the picture and also the back puckered a little bit, but it wasn't tight and don't think it would look weird if you were at an event and moving around/dancing, et. I ended up choosing my other backup dress style instead because it fit more of the style I was looking for in my photos, but I would consider renting this for another occasion for sure.

The overall fit was fine, but it was way too long. I am 5'6'' and it drug on the floor even though I wore very high heels. It negatively impacted my evening as everyone had to steer clear of me so as not to step on the dress. Dancing was almost impossible.

The dress was really lovely and exceptionally comfortable!

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
(Sorry for the less than stellar photo!) Fit: I am 5'5", 128 lbs. 26" waist, 36" bust, 37" hips and 32DD. It fit perfectly! The 4R (which I usually wear) was much too big, but the 2R was perfect. It wasn't too long either. The dress was incredibly comfortable. I didn't need a bra, which was really nice. Customer Service: The original dress I wanted was returned damaged and so this was one of my alternative choices. RTR staff was unbelievably helpful, sending me many dresses (even overnight!) to try on and make sure fit. I was shocked by the level of friendly assistance. Cons: None I can think of except that the dress is a bit more blue, as opposed to the greyish color online. The lace edge on the back of the dress did get snagged on my heel a few times in the night.

While beautiful, this dress isn't meant for petite people with short torsos and curves. The triangle doesn't allow for the dress to go over your hips so it bunches in the back when the straps are too long. The chest is also roomy

I ordered this dress to wear to a military ball.

Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
First, I waited too long before I decided to order, so the other two dresses I liked weren't available-order early! I have an hourglass/pear shape and 25 extra pounds of baby weight, so I'm about a 10/12 size right now. I ordered the 8L and 6L based on reviews. The 6 fit fine on my stomach and hips, but was way too tight on top. The 8 fit perfectly although someone with bigger than a B/C cup might be pushing it as this dress was not stretchy. I found the dress very pretty, but not super flattering for my current weight (although not much is). There is a bit of metallic shine, but I didn't find it overly distracting. The skirt has a lot of fabric and a bit of a train. I'm 5'8.5 and the front was the perfect length in front and a little long in back with 3" heels. Overall, I am very pleased with RTR and the condition and quality of the dresses. It's so easy and I will definitely order from them again!

the long worked great with the shoes I had but the zipper was a tad sticky and the 10 was pretty snug on me exactly where the zipper was sticking (of course!) so I ended up in the 12R which was just long enough, a long would have been better though.

This dress was perfect for a fall wedding in NYC. It is very flattering and glamorous. My only complaint is that it bunches a bit in the back, but it's not that noticeable. It was also a little long for me, and I could wear higher heels because they kept getting caught in the lace. That being said- I loved it and would highly recommend it! .

This was very flattering from the front, but the back bunched up... so I didn't wear it. I have a smaller waist and very curvy hips, and my torso isn't very long, so it wasn't the right dress for me. If it weren't for the fact I had rented this at the very last minute I would've exchanged it. Everything about RTR is amazing, flawless customer service.. can't say enough great things about them.

Perfect Winter Dress! Warm and Beautiful!

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is gorgeous! As folks have mentioned, it is more of a blue tone, but there's almost a silvery sheen to it in certain lights. I love the fabric. There is the under-layer which is quite warm, and then the heavy lace on top. It fits comfortably and securely, though it did take a little coaxing to get the zipper over the middle seam. I'm a busty woman, but it was secure enough that I was comfortable dancing in just a strapless bra. I am about 5'3", and with four inch heels, I was safe in walking around - didn't trip on it! So the dress is quite long but doable. It does bunch just a little in the back, but nothing major.

Unique dress in a classic silhouette. LOVE!

Size worn: 10L
Rented for: Wedding
I was invited to a black tie wedding in March at the very last minute, so I naturally hit up rent the runway for a dress. 9/10 dresses that I wanted to order were unavailable at the last minute so I ended up with this one, and I'm so happy that I did. I had so many compliments throughout the night, which is always a great way to power through the night! Color: The color is definitely a deep midnight shade of blue versus the pretty gray blue that they show in the picture, but I knew this going into it due to other reviews. There is a silver thread in the fabric, but I still wore gold shoes and accessories and pulled it off fine. Fit: I am a 5'9" pear-shaped gal that falls between size 8 and 12 depending on fit. I ordered a size 8L and 10L because of the other reviewers saying that it runs big and I ended up wearing the 10L. I wore approximately 3 inch heels and the dress was almost a tad short but not an issue. I am an A-cup bra and the chest was perfect - I would've had it altered had I owned the dress because the darts were a little bit off, but I don't think anyone noticed except for me. I was able to wear a bra that was just covered by the crisscross back — not an issue. All in all the dress was very comfortable due to some minor stretch, fit well and a total stunner.
