I rented this dress for my On Campus Fashion show with RTR and one of my sisters wore it! She looked smart and sophisticated! Not to mention it was flattering on her and could be dressed with heels or a blazer and tights!

Vintage feel with pockets! SCORE!

Size worn: 20W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I absolutely loved the color and the brocade fabric. I loved the pockets too - I only carried my ID, lipstick and a hair tie. I loved the overall fit of the dress. The only thing I wasn't too crazy about was how this dress fit me in the chest area. It was pretty big and when I sat down, the dress kind of bunch up around my neck, rather than laying flat. Everywhere else, the dress was a perfect fit, which is why I said true to size.

This was a great dress cute and comfy to wear.

Great dress very classy and comfortable to wear. I'm normally a 14 but this dress started in a size 16. It was a bit too big, if only the 14 was available this would have been perfect.

Beautiful!

I absolutely loved this dress! It had a beautiful sparkle to it and I received so many compliments on it. The blue is more of a cobalt blue than it looks like here. It was overall a stunning dress & it even has pockets!

This dress was absolutely beautiful and perfect for my rehearsal dinner. Loved it!

Fit perfectly- I am a very true size 14, and the dress fit like it had been tailored. I am hourglass shaped and it nipped in right at my waist- extremely flattering.

Really a gorgeous blue.

Size worn: 20W
Overall fit: Large

Fit was big in the waist and shoulders. . I wore a shrug with it so it was easy to cover up. The pictures on line don't do the color justice. Well made too.

Beautiful dress- perfect for a business evening event.

Size worn: 22W
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
As others have said - the bust of this dress runs small - you really do need at least one size larger if you have a larger size chest. Otherwise fit is great and dress is very well made and fabric is beautiful.

Loved the look and feel of the dress, but could not wear it. It was just a tad too small.

Just a little too small. Loved the look.. Was not able to rent the same dressing the next size up. Would like to try it again in the larger size!

Comfortable, easy to dance in and fun!

Size worn: 22W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress to a friends wedding. Overall, I loved it. A few things to note: I am 5'4'' and it was a little longer than I would have liked but still totally worked. I have a 40DDD chest and it fit perfectly without squeezing! The back near my waist was the only spot it was a little tight where it is usually the reverse for me with my chest size. I paired it with another Rent the Runway item- Lee Angel Tie It Up necklace. Loved the color and details of the dress and received compliments on it as well. Overall- very comfortable for hours of wear and easy to dance in.

a great dress.

Size worn: 14W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I tried on both the 14 and 16 and was very appreciative of having the option to try them both. Being an overripe pear the waist on the 14 was a bit snug, but the top of the 16 was too large in the bust. I put on some spanx and happily wore the 14, which after the first few minutes didn't feel tight at all. This is a beautiful dress- very party appropriate but classy. I got lots of compliments which I graciously accepted.

Not a woman's size

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I have a rather large chest so this dress gave me a "uni-boob" and was really tight. I couldn't zip the back of the size 18. But it is a pretty dress. The plan was to wear it to a Kentucky Derby type party in the day time, there is a bit of sparkle-like thread so it's a bit much for a daytime.
