Classy and comfortable
This was my first RTR and it was fabulous. Loved the style of the dress and received many compliments. I would say it runs slightly large as I got a 40 for backup, wore the 38 and likely would have had a perfect fit with a 36... The 38 fit well enough that it wasn't worth exchanging. Super comfortable and easy to dance the night away in!

Perfect, understated, but be wary of static cling
Wonderful, simple elegant dress perfect for a work party in winter. Wish I'd had some dryer sheets around though--it was very clingy!

I loved that this dress was covered up but still young looking.
This was a lovely dress. I usually wear an 8 but the 42 was all they had left close to my size. I decided kind of late to reserve a dress. It was great for the cocktail party I went to. Even with it being a little big I could see where the skirt may be tight on women with fuller hip/bottom area. It also was just a little of a challenge to get on since you have to awkwardly fit you head through that back hole. All in all was a great dress and I would rent it again (probably in a smaller size) Was a great first experience with RTR.

Simple, classy, elegant!
I was so happy with this dress! I was nervous, being 5'11", that the dress and sleeves would be too short, but it worked perfectly!! I wore this dress to formal function and it was just what I was looking for: simple and elegant. I normally wear a size 6-8 and the size 40 worked great. Wish I could keep it!!

Great dress for the price, both sizes were about the same length, very appropriate length at that.
The only thing about this dress is that if you've got some hips/ butt it'll be a bit snug but it's not uncomfortable at all, just shows off that part a lil more. Also I love the sheer sleeves, keeps you covered but not sweating, but the wrist opening is kinda small (I have really small wrists) so make sure you unbutton it prior to putting it on and taking it off. Other than that I love love love this dress(:

Great dress for NYE dinner!
This was my second choice dress for New Years Eve. My first choice came Dec 30 and was too snug for my liking. I am so glad I went with this dress. Comfortable, yet classy. Paired great with nude heels and the "mystery bling" I had received with the first dress. My first RTR experience was a success!

Sophisticated and classy (but sexy!) dress
I loved this dress! It fit perfectly and showed some skin through the sleeves but was also covering. The waist has nice woven detail and the sleeve cuffs come with little buttons you can fasten. I think this dress is perfect! So many compliments, and I felt truly beautiful in this dress! The only thing that I would mention that's remotely negative is it's challenging to put on (have someone help you if possible) and once it's on getting the slip beneath to line up is difficult. But those are minor compared to how good the dress looks!

Not for petites!
I got this as a backup for a rehearsal dinner and wore the first choice. Tried this on just to see and it didn't fit at all. Really baggy on top (not sure if you can see the zip portion was actually bagging out and hanging) and snug on the bottom. Better for tall and bigger on top which is the opposite of me! Lesson learned :)

Modest & Chic!
I loved the vintage, yet classy feel to this dress. My one qualm was that it was a bit on the large side. I think it could have been a lot more flattering. I am a size 6 in dresses and based on other reviews got the size 40 (4), and it was still slightly loose. Though it made for a more comfortable night since I didn't have to wear any shape wear. With such a beautiful and intricate waistband, I would have thought it would have been more tapered in the middle. Didn't show off the curves as much as I would have liked. The fabric is great and I absolutely loved the sleeves! I paired it with nude heels, which worked perfectly!

Pretty dress
I ordered this dress as a back up in case the other didn't work out. It is beautiful but does run a bit large. If a 40 is a 6, I'd have ordered the equivalent to a 4 or even a 2.

i wore this dress for a baptism
I read that this dress runs large. I am usually a true 4 sometimes a 6. when I read that it runs large instead of ordering an extra size in the 6 i went with the 2 instead and i ended up wearing the 2. my butt and thighs would have been more comfortable in the 4 but the top was totally too big. especially in the back where the zipper ends to the open back detail, there was large gaps with the size 4 and usually i am pushing it in a size 4. so i wore the 2 and dealt with it being a little snug in the booty area. not the most comfortable dress because the lining and the overlay dont work together nicely. also it is ANNOYING as heck to take on and off, you have to put it over your head and avoid sticking your head through the back opening and risk messing up hair and makeup just to get it over your head. overall i want thrilled with the dress but it was one of those i dont care events so it didnt matter too much. just something to put on.

Pure classic stunner.
The dress was simple, clean lines, classic with a hint of sexy. Ran a little large and was a little tricky to get on however it was perfect for an evening wedding. Excellent rental.

I did not wear the dress. I did not fit my body right.
Unfortunately, this dress did not fit. The 42 was too big. The 40 was tight in areas and big in others. I did not wear the dress.

I wish they had size 11….
I loved this dress, it looks elegant and is perfect for a work dinner party. I have no waist but this dresses gave me one. I ordered size 42 and 44 (10 and 12). Size 10 looked great in the front, but the back (see picture) the zipper keep moving to one size. Size 12 it was way too big and a little baggy, the sleeves were really long. I guess a size 11 would have been great. In the pictures I’m wearing a size 10.

This dress was stunning with understated elegance. It was very comfortable. I ordered size 6 and 8 (38 and 40). The 40 just made it around my hips. I recommend sizing up as back up size.

Disappointed!
Do not rent this dress if you have any hips! The bias cut slip of the size 6 got hung up on my normally size 4 hips, and it would not lay down. Very unfortunate...

Great dress arrived exactly when expected.
Dress looked great, the reviews were very helpful. My usual dress size is between and 8 and 10. Based on the reviews I ordered the 42 and 44. The 42 was perfect. My friend was also wearing a rent the runway dress.

Gorgeous! Got many great compliments!
This dress is beautiful. I wore it to a fall wedding and received so many compliments on it. It has just the right amount of skin showing to be sexy, while still looking classy and elegant. This dress fit me almost perfectly (it was just a little tight in the chest area). Overall, I loved it and wished I could keep it!

The dress was perfect for a fun, elegant fall wedding.
Initially I was a little confused about how to get it on, but I eventually figured it out. I received few compliments about the sleeves and the back. I wore the size 38, though it was a little big. But it was comfortable.

This dress made me look old and frumpy. Although I am old, I am not frumpy! :)
The long sleeves and high neck were not youthful. I just didn't like the way it looked on me.

Small and too plain
I am a pretty standard 8, sometimes sizing up or down depending on the designer. I ordered the (converted) 8 and 10, and I couldn't get either of them over my hips. The dress is pretty, but it is VERY plain... it definitely needs a statement necklace or something. I would even suggest a different belt or sash type situation to go over the embroidery. I didn't wear this and just picked something out of my closet instead... what a disappointment.

Nice color. Appropriately conservative for my event.
The dress runs very small in the hips. I thought I would need the 34 but ended up wearing the 36 and it was still a bit tight. The color is a nice plum. The whole thing was attractive.

Very pretty cocktail dress for a wedding or formal event!
This was my first experience with RTR and I was very pleased with the service. This is a very nice dress for a fall cocktail wedding -- I received many compliments on it, especially the ribboning around the waist. I usually wear a 2 but ordered the 4 as a backup and I'm so glad I did -- this dress has virtually no stretch so I would definitely order up if you are between sizes!

Felt very elegant!
I wore this to the Directors reception at the Yacht Club I received so many compliment and I felt very good in the dress. I was so glad that I ordered the 42 in addition to the 40. I have been wearing size 8 with other RTR dresses, but this one runs very small in the waist and was way to tight to zip up at my 34D breast. Having to wear the next size made it a little long both in the length of the dress but in the sleeve length. But I loved it and might rent it again.

I loved the way it looked but the material had no give and was just a bit too small. Pretty color!!!
It was a bit too small (I'm curvy so material that doesn't give is hard to wear). It was a great color and lovely material though

Great dress, wish I would have had a size bigger.
This dress is really comfortable and great for a party. I found the chest was a little tight and wished I would have gone up a size to compensate. I normally wear a size 8 dress and my bra size is a 34C. Overall awesome experience and received lots of compliments.

Conservative but not boring.
I am trying out dresses for an upcoming event on the conservation side. Size 2 was not available (my normal size) so I tried the 0. It fit snug through the waist and hips (not in a bad way but I would want more room to sit and move in real lift) however the sheer part of the top was cut small. I have a large chest by I seldom run into a dress that I can't get zipped up the back even if I size down. This seemed odd especially as the slip had more than enough room. I also wish the slip was tacked in a few more paces to the dress - the straps get lost and the skirt rolls up taking it on and off. That aside, it is perfect for hitting all the coverage notes while still showing off your shape and not feeling too matronly.

Ended up being too conservative.
I ended up not wearing this dress and using my backup instead. It was very pretty but felt a little too conservative. I also didnt love the open slot in the back. The sleeves were very long. It was very figure flattering but I ended up going with a little bit sexier black lace dress that I rented instead.

Business in the front, party in the back!
I recently wore this dress to a wedding rehearsal dinner. It was absolutely perfect! Just sexy enough, without being revealing or showy. It looks fairly conservative from the front, but I got so many compliments on it once I turned around! I had actually rented another dress, which became unavailable the day of my delivery. RTR upgraded my order and sent me this dress instead (their stylists must have used my rental history to select something I'd love, because this was a winner off the bat!). I was a bit wary at first, because chiffon has no give. The 36 fit (but just barely), but I went with the 38 for comfort. It fell perfectly over my hips, with no pulling or puckering. I felt wonderful in it, and may even rent it again, I enjoyed wearing it so much (that is, unless it goes on retirement sale first!).

I wore this dress for my friends mountain wedding in Oct - it was perfect for the occasion.
Fit true to size I thought. I ordered the smaller size too (2). Thankfully, my normal size (4) was the one that fit. I have what I call "regular girl" thighs and the smaller size (2), although it fit me in my waist, arms and boobs, was WAY too tight in the thigh area. If you are afraid this might happen, order one size up or your normal size and it should work.

this dress was perfect for a winter wedding in a formal setting.
i was surprised that it was navy, not black but loved it anyway. the sleeves were a little hard to button and the button cover popped off one sleeve at the first try. otherwise it was perfect. seemed true to size (the 34 fit like a 0), length was to the knee. wish i owned it.

Happy Accident!
This dress was a last minute upgrade because I ordered a cheaper size 6 long sleeve navy dress. By looking at the picture or even seeing it on the hanger, this isn't something I would've have picked out for myself. HOWEVER, this dress is is wonderful! It's sexy and classic so you could wear it to all sorts of events. Also, I have larger than average arms but the sleeves weren't tight at all.

Not being able to wear the dress.....
I was so in love with this dress and was so sad not to wear it! The size that fit was the smaller of the two that you sent to me. In this dress the inner charmeuse dress was not tacked to the outer chiffon on the right side. I did not have a needle and thread with me and sadly had no time to fix it. I tried the "Hollywood tape" that was sent to me, but that did not hold it. I could not wear it because it restriced my movement when it draped down my upper arm. Would I use this service again? Probably, but I would really inspect the garment closely before committing to wearing it. This was my mistake because I did not have enough time to do so. Other than that your shipping was right on time.
