This dress made me feel fierce! T!

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.

Perfect for a wedding!

Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
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!

The fit was great & the peplum was a nice touch.

Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
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!

RTR overnighted me dresses, since my original choices did not arrive due to snow storms

Size worn: 0L
Rented for: Wedding
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.

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.

It fit really well in all the right places and the little poplin flare will make every woman feel comfortable. I wore 3" heels so the length was perfect for my 5'3" frame. I received several compliments through out the night . This was my second time renting this dress, the time before I rented the red one and it was wonderful as well. i would recommend to anyone for the formal, classic style .

Absolutely loved this dress. Wore it to a military dinner, so wanted something conservative yet fashionable and this was perfect. Usually dresses run long for me but this dress was the absolute perfect length with my 3.5 inch heels. Pretty true to size, accentuated my waist really well. Customer service was also great, I'm definitely renting again. I loved this dress wish I didn't have to send it back!

Great for a black tie affair!

Size worn: 12R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Very fitted dress, I am usually between a size 8-10 but having tried the 10 on at the Georgetown store I ordered the 10 and 12. Glad I did - I ended up wearing the 12 for extra dancing room (not that there was much). The only down side to up-sizing is it was a little loose at the straps, but fit snugly on the breast and (especially) the hips! Best part finding a dress I could wear a normal bra with. I got lots of complements and it traveled well and didn't wrinkle. All in all I loved the dress an can't wait to Rent the Runway again soon!

This dress was exactly what I expected when I rented it. It is fitted without showing too much of anything. It was a good quality material and fit well. I would highly recommend this dress for women who are looking for something simplistic or modest. That being said, this is the shortest "long" I have ever rented from Rent the Runway. You can't tell in the picture, but it was about 2" off the ground. This was the case for both the 6L and the 8L. Moreover, I just felt like the dress was missing something the whole night, but I also think this is because I tend to wear less simplistic dresses.

OBSESSED

Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This is the most gorgeous gown. The fabric is amazing quality - thick and well lined. Color is a gorgeous navy, just like the picture. Wore to a wedding. It's insanely flattering and I got non-stop compliments on it during and after the event. You can wear a bra (#winning) because the straps are just thick enough and the back is low but not too low. DEFINITELY GET A LONG if you are going to wear heels and are a little taller! I also got the 8R because the 6R wasn't available. The bust fit me slightly better on the 8R but it was way too short (like ankle length) and overall the 6L was true to size and I'm glad I went with it. You will not be sorry you rented this gown.

Okay so the dress was a little tight(my decision, thought it looked better) so it was slightly tough to bend over when I dropped my purse. It is perfect for a slightly chilly night as it is a little heavy, but my night was warm and I had no problem. Never thought renting a dress would go so smoothly as it did.

Tight in the bust. The fabric doesn't have any stretch. I'm 5'5", I wish I would have ordered the long. I had to wear fancy flip flops bc I couldn't wear a heal. The dress was just too short. My feet didn't hurt, so that was a plus! I am physically fit and would not suggest the dress to someone who isn't thin. I wouldn't let my arms hang down because it would cause my flesh to squish out the arm area. I ordered the 4R as a back up. It was actually tighter than the 2R and even tighter in the bust! I would have been much more comfortable in the 4 if it would have actually been larger than the 2.

This was a great dress! I am 5'5" and around 115 pounds and was in between the 0 and 2. The 0 was more flattering on my waist, but I was worried about dancing and moving around in it, so I went with the 2. The 2 still looked great and was much more comfortable to move in. The color is a kind of chalky navy, not too dark. Would definitely rent again!

I rented both the 4R and 6R - the 4 fit fine everywhere except for my chest (which - given my 34F (DDD) chest wasn't surprising) so I went with the 6R and was able to wear it without a bra (for me - a miracle of fashion!). I would absolutely rent this again.
