Great gown for a Black Tie Wedding. Sexy and classy!

Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The dress fit true to size and fit like a glove. It shaped my body perfectly and was very comfortable to move it. I felt great in it all afternoon for the ceremony and then into dancing at night. I wore 3 inch heels and the length was just perfect; no tripping or snagging. The dip in the back stopped right at my bra so I could still wear a normal, regular bra. Very hugging in the hips so be careful of pantie line. Overall this dress was amazing, the rent the runway experience was amazing and I will definitely be renting again!!

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
The dress is SO classy for a black tie wedding and I got so many compliments. Only thing is I'm usually a 6, but I had to wear the 8 (which was still super tight) because the dress has no stretch to it. If you're a girl with some booty or curvy hips, I suggest getting a size or two larger than you normally would.

Prettiest dress I've ever worn, hands down

Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is incredible for formal affairs. The material and fit were so flattering. I'm 5'8" and 145 lbs and wore the 4L, which ended up being the perfect length with 3.5" heels. It was a little tight, but the dress is so flattering that it didn't matter. I'd recommend going with your typical size. This dress is also available on RTR in red, which I'll probably rent for my next formal affair. Rent this dress!!!!

Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Perfect for a Fall Wedding in Chi-town! This dress is simple, elegant and extremely comfortable. I danced in it all night long. The fabric is thick and yet it is so flexible and flowing. It hugs your body in all the right places. I recommend getting one size up as a back up, it is more fitted in the bust area. I went with the 4L instead and it was the perfect fit and length. The dress is definitely a keeper! So sad to be sending it back.

I felt great in this!

Size worn: 10L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I really wanted an 8 L as i'm a little over 5'6" and was going to wear heels. They only had the 8R available, and the 10L. The 8R fit me like a glove. It was perfect, but way too short. I ended up wearing the 10L, and it was just a little baggy in the waist and such. I have very large breasts, a tiny waist, and then hips/thighs...pretty much an hourglass. The 8 hugged perfectly, and although the 10 was a little big, it was still SO flattering. I got told the dress was made for my body!

Rent the runway SAVED ME

Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I was invited to a black tie gala two days before the event. I've heard about the website before but had never used it but I'm so glad I finally did. Besides the fact that the gowns are gorgeous, their delivery method is impeccable. My gown arrived right on time and I absolutely loved it. It was true to the size, beautiful and I received SO MANY compliments on how elegant it looked. The only reason I am giving it 4 stars is because it had a small rupture in the zipper but it was barely noticeable. The prices are very fair and the return method extremely easy. I'm definitely renting in the future. Thanks Rent the Runway!

Size worn: 10R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The peplum accentuated my curves and waist in the most perfect way! The fabric was thick enough to smooth over imperfections and keep it's sleek shape. The arm holes were a tad large, but with a dark bra everything looked seamless. The mermaid shape had a slight train that added to the drama and seemed to balance me out visually. I would rent this dress again!

Extremely comfortable and elegant

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I think this is my favorite rental thus far. I can't believe how comfortable it was and how great it looked!!! I am generally between a size 4 and 6 in dresses and I ended up wearing the 6 because the 4 was just a liiiiittle too tight in the bust and hips, however, I didn't notice much difference in the waist or length for either size. Speaking of length, it is a rare occasion that I don't have to wear "stripper heels" with regular length dresses... I was able to wear 4.5 inch heels (with half inch platform in the front) and the dress pooled a little, but I didn't have an issue walking at all. The only issue I had with the dress was that the armholes seemed a little big and my bra showed a little, which you can barely see in the picture. But the good thing is that you can wear a normal bra and that's a big deal when you have 34DD's! The dress is a heavier material so it is best suited for fall and winter events. If I have the opportunity, I will definitely be renting this in red!

Absolutely classic. So many compliments!!

Size worn: 4R
Rented for: Formal Affair
I loved this dress so much - I'm SO happy I rented it. I'm 5'8" but my date was short so a wanted to wear flats - the regular length worked well! It would have been nice for it to be like half an inch longer. But it touched the floor when I was wearing flats, and there is a mini-train in the back that's gorgeous. I'm usually a 2 on top and 4 on the bottom. With the 4R, the hips were snug, so I recommend ordering your normal size for your hips, as well as one size up. I haven't worn a dress with this material before - it's lovely! The dress is made very well - flattering and comfortable. I could wear a normal bra with this as well.

I rented this dress for a winter wedding and it was absolutely perfect! It fit my body so well and I still felt like I could move around easily and dance. I usually wear a size 4 but I couldn't quite zip it up since the dress runs a little small, so I'm really happy I ordered the 6L as a back up. I wore 3 inch heels and the length was perfect.

This dress is so flattering on your curves, and I got tons of compliments. Color is closer to navy.

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress has a gorgeous fit -- it's incredibly flattering (the peplum hides any lower-tummy curves). I will say that the skirt is tight (although amazingly flattering), so if you're gifted in the thigh and butt department, be aware that it may be tight, but looks awesome. I'm usually between a 4 or a 6, and often times the size up will fit my bottom half and be too loose on top. However I sized up and it was perfect: the top still fit amazingly well!

Great, flattering dress!

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this dress for a black tie wedding in October, I run between a 4-6 in dresses usually, the 6R fit great but a little snug. I would have liked to have tried on the 8R just for comparison. I can't imagine it would work really well for larger busted ladies, I'm a 34C and it was pretty tight in the chest. It was just a tad long for me at 5'4", but with heels on it was fine. Overall it was super flattering for my lack of curves, the peplum was adorable. The fabric also has a nice little bit of stretch which made it much more comfortable. Lots of compliments on it, super classy!

Overall fit: True to Size

I usually wear 8s in pants/dresses, and this pretty much fit perfectly. I'm only 5'5 - but based on previous experience with RTR I went with an 8L. The 8L just hit the floor with 2 inch heels. I have suuuper wide hips and big boobs, and this dress made me feel completely comfortable. I wish it was available in the red that weekend - but I really have no complaints :) I will say that the color in the picture isn't exactly the color that I expected. It was slightly darker in person. Would definitely recommend!

Great Dress for a Black Tie Wedding

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was perfect for a winter black tie wedding. The color is a pretty true navy and was a great "break" from the sea of black dresses. I got a regular, and at around 5'5" could have gotten a long to wear with higher heels. I wore around 1" - 1 1/2" inch wedges and it worked. It does, however, run a little small. I'm normally a 0 or 2comfortably in BCBG and the 2 in this dress was a little snug in the hips. I would have liked to have tried on the 4 just to see if it would have allowed a little more room in the hips to dance. Otherwise, great dress that I would definitely rent again!

I decided to use this pic above all others because it shows the detail of the dress. I was very unsure about choosing this gown because the color differed from one review to another. The color is a light navy. The peplum and mermaid shape are figure flattering but also gave me an hour glass shape! This dress was my back up but I loved it more than the others sent. However size up for your second size! I am 5'6" and the long was a perfect length with heels.

This dress has enough coverage for a black tie event in a catholic church but hugged the curves in all the right places to make it sexy! A great color on anyone and something besides just black. I am small chested and it was still a little tight under the arms but it wasn't enough of a problem for me to really notice. This dress fit like a glove and makes you feel sexy! The bottom flare part makes it so fun to walk and dance in. I am 5 7' and wore the long with 11/2 inch heels and it was the perfect length!

Unfortunately I got sick so I couldn't wear it out in public but it would have been perfect. I'm larger in the breast so I had to go one size up which made the waist a little looser (but turned out to be perfect after dinner). It's a beautiful dress and can dressed up or down depending on the jewelry.

Classy, Elegant, Simple

Size worn: 12L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Received two compliments from complete strangers before even getting to the event, both saying the dress fit me perfectly :) It was simple and very beautiful, the peplum gives you a tiny waist while hiding any imperfections. The dress was very tight around my thighs, hips, and bum but it still looked great. If you're gifted in those areas keep that in mind when ordering sizes. The arm holes were also a little tight but I have broad shoulders/strong arms so it may not be that way for everyone. The dress has a little stretch which is good, only con I felt was that the peplum top does not have any give so when you sit down it will still squeeze your waist pretty tight. I got the L and it hit the floor perfectly, I am 5'9" and wore flats.

Very pretty dress. The length was perfect for me, but if you're taller than 5'4 I would recommend ordering a Long if you plan to wear heels. Fit was a little snug especially after eating. If you're in between sizes, size up, Also the color is more navy than blue in person.
