Great dress for a friend's wedding.
Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I was getting compliments all night. I'm 5'6" and wore the regular length. It was perfect when dancing barefoot, but a little short when wearing 4" heels. Great dress overall! Would definitely recommend.

Most complimented dress EVER!
Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is AMAZING. Simple as that. You will feel like the Belle of the Ball in this gown! I wore it to a formal wedding and have never received so many compliments in my life! Seriously, the fit is amazing. I originally had ordered a 4R and 6R based on reviews, but then became worried about the length. I'm only 5'4" but wear sky high heels, so I contacted RTR and they were fabulous (as always) and changed my order to a 4L and 6L. So happy I did that! With 6" Steve Madden nude platforms this dress flowed beautifully and I didn't trip once. I definitely have some hip action going on, and this dress elongated me and gave me an extra curvy hourglass look. I rented the Ben-Amun Gold Deco Crystal Teardrop earrings and they went perfectly...very classy. Not one complaint. Order this gown for your next formal affair...you won't be disappointed!

What an amazing dress! Truly flattering, curve hugging in all the right ways. At 5' 10" and truly and hourglass, it's hard to find dresses that accentuate properly, this dress did all that and more!

The dress was a perfect fit and it felt great on me! The dress accentuated my makeup; it was magical. Fortunately, I have no cons for the dress, only pros. I felt like I was star and received positive reviews all night!

I wore it to my senior prom. Never had I received so many complements on a dress before. The lace felt and looked expensive.I got a 2L I am 5'5'' and it was the perfect length with 3 inch heels. It was stretchy enough to dance in, so comfortable. Rent the runway had wonderful customer service emailed me back right away answering all my questions! Easy process to rent. I highly recommend this dress!

Awesome dress! So easy to wear and Rent The Runway was awesome from start to finish!
Size worn: 10R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I was the Emcee of a large Children's Hospital Gala and needed a gown that was comfortable and covered some of my ink, due to the religious affiliation of the Hospital. I'm 5'3" and am curvy with a large chest. This dress was perfect in a 10R. The length was spot on. I had enough "give" in the dress to move freely, yet it layed nicely on my curves without showing every detail of my flab. I received a TON of compliments that evening and told EVERYONE to use RentTheRunway! I cannot believe how easy it was to rent and return. I will definitely use RTR again for my next affair!

This gown was so flattering and comfortable!

Overall fit: True to Size

This was the alternate dress I rented for a "red tie" gala. The fit is fantastic, and it is surprisingly comfortable. I rented the long, and wore 3-inch heels. I probably could have gotten away with the regular, but thought the flow and train effect was cool. Would absolutely rent this again.

Lots of compliments and perfect for a February Gala in NYC - It's been so cold!!
Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I was worried about the fit of this dress since I hadn't tried it on prior to receiving it. I am approx. 110lbs, 5'4.5" and with 4inch heels on, this dress fit perfectly. I love the silhouette and it was very flattering, however it does show all your curves and is fitted through the middle area, so if that is something you are worried about this dress might not be for you. I paired with black drop earrings instead of a necklace to balance the busy lace detail of the dress. This was my first RTR experience and I'm excited to RTR again :)

Size worn: 6R

My first pick didn't fit just right, and I am so glad this is the dress I chose to go with. Wore for my company's annual banquet. Was so tickled as I received compliments all night, even from men who said they really thought it was a classy and elegant gown. I wore the belt that came with the other dress, I felt it added the perfect touch. The gown was a little loose in my waist so it helped with that, too. Overall, I would rent this again and give it my complete blessing! A understated but beautiful gown.

I wore this dress to a black tie affair and I have never received so many compliments in my life! The fit was incredible and the dress was extremely comfortable, classy and sexy. I am actually renting another dress for a cocktail party at the end of the month! Because of Rent the Runway, I may never buy another formal and/or cocktail dress ever again!

Red Carpet Premier of our first feature film, and I needed something special!
Size worn: 14L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
First off, It is a lot more fitted in the chest and stomach region than I imagined. Very unforgiving, so wear spanx if you have to! I also thought I could wear a bra with straps but it turns out that the top of the dress is actual lace and bare skin, so I had to opt for a more uncomfortable strapless bra (boooo). It is a very heavy and sturdy dress, and I was actually VERY warm in it inside of the venue, so keep that in mind when selecting this dress. Finally, the neckline tends to choke, a lot. I found myself dying to get out of the dress... But of course, the compliments kept me in it! I felt like a star and everyone loved the dress, so I can't complain!

GORGEOUS
Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this for my senior year winter formal dance and it is by far the best dress I have worn to a dance. I am not one to wear fitted dress, but this one looked so nice! I didn't have to wear a slip or anything to smooth underneath, which is uncommon. It did get somewhat warm in the dress, but it was worth it. I love the sleeves too! I got a lot of compliments! I am usually a 4, but the 2 would have fit me if it weren't for my bust (DD). The dress was a little under an inch too long on me (I'm 5' 6"), which is why I wore the teal heels. Any color shoe could go with it. You should probably wear a strapless bra because the nude layer ends right above the bust and bra straps would be visible. The renting experience was easy as well. All my friends have told me they are going to use Rent the Runway for prom because they loved my dress and have already chosen their dresses!

This dress is AMAZING! I wanted something that covered all of my tattoos for a military ball and something that would keep me warm in the month of JAN in NY. All night long people commented on how gorgeous I was! I am 113 pounds, 5'3 and a half (I claim 5'4), and my measurements are 34-25-36. I usually wear between a 0-4. This dress ran true to size. I was VERY pleased with this dress! Would rent again if I needed it.

I got a TON of compliments on this dress. I felt beautiful, I would love to wear it again. It fit true to size but is very long. I am 5’5, wore heals with the regular length and it still pooled on the floor a little. Which was stunning, just had to be careful when I walked It was heavy and warm but stunning.

I am SO happy I rented this dress for a holiday festive wedding. The dress was the perfect length for my 3(ish) inch red heels, which were a nice color pop when I walked. I received so many compliments on the dress. One wedding guest asked if she could take a photo of me because the dress was "stunning." It was a bit hot to dance in, but well worth the heat! I would TOTALLY rent this dress again!

I'm really a size 0, but I decided to try the 2 and hope for the best. It was a little loose, but still looked great; very regal. At 5'3", the dress was still a bit long for me also, even with 5" heels, so keep that in mind when you rent this one. Otherwise, an amazing dress that caught plenty of attention. Loved it!

Gorgeous lace gown!

Overall fit: True to Size

This gown is a pretty and very flattering formal option. The lining underneath is nude and it is fitted so it actually makes for a surprisingly sexy style. Still has the long sleeves and high neck though for a more conservative feel.

This dress was absolutely beautiful. It came exactly as it was described and fit as though it was tailored to me. I'm 5'5 and even with my biggest heels the dress still fell to the floor which is what I was looking for. I would def recommend this dress for anyone looking. It was so elegant and the complements kept coming all night :)

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small

I'm 5'9 and got the 4L as a back-up dress, and it was WAY too short. It hit my ankles. Also, the pattern was really busy, I felt like it wasn't really appropriate for a black-tie wedding.

Gorgeous, quality lace and flattering fit!
Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is so gorgeous! The lace is heavyweight and not stretchy (but still comfortable), making it fall beautifully to the floor and lending to its quality. It's edgy yet still pretty conservative. The only jewelry I wore were some long earrings and it was plenty with the lace. I'd rent it again!

Gorgeous dress but short
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This was my first choice dress. I still want to wear this dress. Unfortunately I ordered an 8R as my original size and 6R as my backup. Only the 6R came. Also, my necklace did not arrive either. I would've appreciated a heads up from RTR about the unavailability of these items ahead of time so I was not so distressed when I opened the box. I ultimately needed an 8L. That would've been perfect, but it was not available (neither was the 8R). I do commend RTR for sending me two new dresses (although neither of those worked), but because there phone lines were done it was quite a task to get all that done via chat. Its a very stretchy dress but if you have curves it will make the dress shorter in length so opt for a long. I would order a size up. Still bummed about not being able to wear this dress.

This dress was amazing!!! And fit like a glove.
Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I could have worn the 2 but because I'm tall I preferred the added length on the 4. With heels it just skimmed the floor. It fit perfectly in all the right places and was not too tight on the butt. And I have a rather large one. Got numerous compliments all night long. One person said my dress was" wicked". The lining matched my skin perfectly so it gave the illusion that I was only wearing lace. Love it!! It was a very sexy dress and I had such a blast that I forgot to take a pic!!!

What a great experience and a great dress!
Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The only thing I was unaware of when renting this gown is that I thought the nude lining was under the entire dress; in fact, it is just the lace overlay on the upper chest, shoulders and arms. The lining is only where a strapless dress would go. I was only slightly disappointed (due to my want of wearing a normal bra) - this quickly vanished. The dress fit like a dream - it gave the appearance of a fitted gown with out any pull. The lace was so forgiving and hugged my curves. I loved the conservative look but with the fit it had a very sexy feel and look. I received many compliments. The regular length was shorter than I thought, you could see the toes of my heels (only a 2 inch lift).
