Very little give but beautiful fabric
I usually go between a 10 or 12 but the 10 was way too tight. Even the 12 was a little hard to walk in sometimes because there's no slit in the back like usual slim fit skirts/dresses. Getting in and out of a cab was a bit difficult but the fabric is beautiful and is great for anyone with curves they're uncomfortable with.

Very cute and faltering
I wanted to rent this dress for my sister-in-laws wedding because I walked my son down the aisle and had to wear the wedding color, grey, but they didn't have the size I wanted in stock for a while. Fortunately, a week before the wedding, my size came back in. I was very happy with this dress. The material was thick and looked great. I loved the little peplum that covered my post baby pudge. I ended up wearing the 12 instead of my normal size, 10, because the dress has no give at all so the 10 was just a little too snug for sitting. Definitely size up for your second size. Overall I was very happy with this dress. The only reason I gave it 4 and not 5 stars is because I would have been more comfortable had it been just a little stretchy.

Lovely dress for black tie holiday party!
I ordered this dress as an emergency substitute when my first order didn't fit. This one was perfect! It's great for a curvy figure and was comfortable. I got lots of compliments. Fabric is even prettier in person!

This was a lovely dress for a warm, Southern fall wedding.
Pro: Beautiful and flattering dress. Fabric felt expensive. Easy to style. Con: I'm in-between sizes, and my back-up size (4) did not arrive. I was sent a second dress to make up for it, but the second dress was white...not a good choice for a wedding. Thankfully, the original size (2) fit. It was tight across the hips, but otherwise fine. This dress is a great fabric, but it doesn't have much give. Since mine was a bit tight already, I found that I had to take smaller steps than usual. I was very happy with the dress, but it may not be a good choice if you need to move a lot at your event.

Brother-in-law's wedding in Florida.
I wore this dress for my brother-in-laws wedding. Got TONS of compliments! My only complaints about the dress are that the zipper was really hard to get up and down (not because of fit) and that the arm hole was a little snug for dancing. I just had a baby 2 months ago but this dress was so flattering that I felt awesome in it!

Fun and formal dress
This dress fit me well in the bust. It was tight around my hips and there was no slit in the back, so climbing stairs was a bit difficult. Overall it looked nice and fit well enough for the evening. My back up size of 10 was unavailable. This may have fit me better at the hips, but I would have been worried about the bust being too large, so the 8 worked well.

Cute dress, but it wasn't meant to be.
I rented this as a last minute reselection, so I could only get it in one size. I wanted it to work out, but unfortunately for curvier girls like me, when it runs true to size, it's going to fit up top but be too small in the hips. I thought I was going to bust a seam when I tried to sit down! It also had a very high armhole which made the top uncomfortable as it cut in to my underarm, but not unbearable. I only had the 6 to try, so not sure how an 8 would have fit. It was pretty material and the RTR Customer Service team did a 5 star job getting me a last-minute reselection, even if it didn't work out.

The process of renting and returning was easy. The selections are endless. The reviews were helpful.
The dress fit perfectly - room for food and to bust a move! I took a chance getting this dress too bc they did not have the backup size I needed just in case. This is where I emphasize the reviews and photos of people who rent are very helpful. Had a great RTR experience! Thanks for giving me the chance to dress fabulously for my grandmother's 80th birthday!

Beautiful fabric, true to size, tight around hips
I rented this dress bc it is a departure from my typical style. The fabric is very pretty and well made - nicer even than it looks online. The top fit very true to size but the hips and butt was much too tight. Im proportionately larger in that area so I would have had to size up to make this dress work.

This dress was perfect for a more formal wedding like I attended.
The dress was true to size so it fit perfectly! I was concerned about the top being small due to other reviews on this dress (I am a 32DD) however it was not small by any means. I wore a strapless bra under the dress and it still fit nicely. I received many compliments throughout the night and would definitely rent this dress again. Overall, I was very happy with my first Rent the Runway purchase, can't wait to do it again.

Flattering but impossible to zip
My husband liked this dress better than the one I chose to wear to my business related semi-formal event. The problem was the side zipper. My husband would not be with me when I was changing for the event, and the side zipper was impossible to zip on my own. Additionally, although a one-shoulder garment, the side that did have a shoulder also had a very high arm hole. It was uncomfortable in my underarm. This dress is best for people with narrow hips.

The fit is true to size. The peplum detail is flattering. In person the fabric looks expensive -- much better looking in person than it looks online.

Great early fall dress!
I wore this dress to an outdoor/indoor October wedding. Wore with grey shoes, a grey/purple pashmina, and rtr earrings. Pros: The dress had great sturdy fabric and a very pretty pattern. The colors were rich. I thought the cut of the dress was flattering; I loved the one sided peplum! Cons: The dress did run a little small in the hips. I went with the larger size and felt the dress was still a little constricting (no give in the fabric). I could see why some others have worn a belt to cinch on their waist; there seemed to be a little extra fabric in that area due to sizing up for my hips.

Great for a mommy-to-be!
I am pregnant so I was a little worried about the fit but after reading other reviews I felt very confident that the fit would be fine. I measured myself right before order the dress since I have been growing. I got the 12 and 14, with the baby bump I ended up wearing the 14. The dress was loose in the waist and the bust but for me it was more important that the dress fit my baby bump and hips. This dress is actually really cute with a baby bump and was very flattering.

Felt so beautiful!
This dress was perfect for a formal family wedding. It was a little snug in the chest, but a long as you're a D or below, it shouldn't be a problem. The dress also had enough room in the legs and hips that I could run, dance, and bend down with my toddler - a rare find in formal attire.

Dress fits true to size. Love the dress. The material was heavier than I anticipate so it wouldn't be good for a very hot or humid outdoor event. Zipper was very hard to use on or off...you'll definitely need help getting dressed.

Chic - but difficult zipper
I liked wearing this dress, it's a basic sheath with some fun elements. I believe it fits very true to size. I was afraid the peplum would emphasize my hip and abdomen area, but it laid smoothly and if anything, helped hide the troubles spots. The material is very thick. My main complaint is the zipper, it was very difficult to zip on both dresses. At the time I ordered this I was between an 8 and 10, and even on the larger size with ample extra room I could barely zip it?!? This is the second CMV dress I've had this issue with. Definitely plan on having a helper to zip into this dress.

beautiful dress for semi-formal event
The pictures don't do this dress justice. The flow of the pattern and the quality of the material were excellent. Only two issues that any one interested in this dress should be aware of, one, the garment hanging strings needed to be taped in, they refused to stay in the dress and two, the bust runs a little big. Sizing down would have been too small all over. The fit was accurate for length and waist. I would rent this dress again.

I like how it showed my shape
I didn't think I was going to wear the dress. I felt tight and uncomfortable when I put it on. I guess after a while it adjusted or I did but it was ok. One issue, it doesn't have a split so it gets hard to get in and out of the car and can be uncomfortable in the thigh area. It was very flattering though.

Lovely- but not for my body
I try again and again to make the peplum work for me, and it never does. This dress is lovely with a sturdy fabric that looks forgiving. I just don't have a shape and it seemed to highlight that. It made me look wider than I am. I wish it had worked, because it reminds me of something Blair Waldorf would have worn :)

Pretty in person but busty gals this one may not be for you...
I rented this dress using the overnight try on deal RTR had going on. This was not the dress I ultimately decided to rent for my upcoming event. The dress on this fabric is super cute and much prettier in person than in the pictures but the fabric has zero give. Oy. I'm a pretty busty gal and though the waist and hips fit it, the dress did not close at the chest area. If I was serious about this dress I would no doubt go up a size or two due to that problem. This one just wasn't for me. (no picture attached because it didn't zip.)

Great Dress!
The dress was very flattering. It was a little too big becuase I couldn't get the size I wanted, but overall great. I paired it with a black belt to dress it down a bit for the wedding. Heavy, quality material and doesn't have much give.
