Fun and Flirty
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Wore this for NYE party downtown. Dress runs true to size. No stretch. Overall I found the dress to be flattering. Even though I'm only 5'2", the length of the dress was fine and the short side was just right - showed plenty of leg, but not so much as to reveal anything else! It's quite low cut in the front, the draping does help to provide a little extra coverage, so you aren't overly exposed. I'm only giving it 4 out of 5 stars due to the hem on one of the flowy layers was quite frayed. Not really noticeable to anyone other than myself. I definitely recommend this dress!!

After I wore this dress to a business event, I tried to find it on-line to BUY.
Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size

In designer clothes I am a solid size 12 and this fit me perfectly. No fancy undergarments necessary. I wore underwear and a regular bra - not even tights or stockings. The fabric is textured, so it hides little bumps and lumps. I got complements all night!! I really did want to buy this dress, but couldn't find it on-line anywhere....I will keep looking! RTR offered me 'mystery' stylist selected accessories for $15, which I accepted and that was the amazing necklace that I am wearing. Loved that as well!

Such a flattering style and perfect for a countryside evening wedding
Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I loved this dress!! I got it as my bridesmaid dress for a country wedding. The bride wanted us to have black dresses that were fancy but not full length and this was exactly perfect for the occasion. The fit could not have been better! For a full-figured hourglass girl like myself, it had a flattering waistline but enough room to move in the hips and a comfortable bust. The asymmetry makes it stand-out, the ruffles in the back make it flirty, and the cowl neck is undeniably sexy. Perfect for dancing and so elegant!

Wore this for a Mardi Gras ball and it was great! Got tons of compliments.
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
It fit me perfectly. I'd ordered the back-up a size up (8) from my usual (6) just in case, considering I'm 4 months pregnant. However, the 6 fit wonderfully and it has a little give around the tummy area to hide any of those potential problem areas! ( I tried to include pictures that show the overall dress, the way it angles at the bottom, and the bust of the dress ) Pros: -Fit VERY well -Was very comfortable -Would flatter most body types (would avoid if you need larger than a 10) -Perfect length (left side is a little shorter than finger tips and angles down to below knee on right) Cons: -If you're busty (like me) you will definitely need the fashion tape they so awesomely provide! -The straps kept moving to the side, but wouldn't have been a problem if I had used the tape. (and only a problem for me because I'm unable to go bra-less) so I'd suggest wearing a black bra as well.

This has been my Favorite Dress so Far!!
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This was my backup dress. I tried it on, and I just had to wear it. It fit like a glove, and it just flowed with me when I walked. I felt incredibly beautiful, and I got a ton of compliments. It was fun to dance in, and it was also extremely comfortable. It was slightly longer on me than the model, it probably came down to a little bit below my knees. Since I have a full bust, I did wear a black Spanx Cami underneath, otherwise it would have showed too much cleavage for a wedding. Another solution would have been fashion tape, but I liked the cami better.

Perfect formal little black dress!
Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I loved this dress and it ended up fitting perfectly! I'm 5'8" and the short side of the dress was definitely very short, I had planned to wear it with tights and I am very glad I had, because I would not have been very comfortable showing that much leg. I ended up using some fashion tape in the bust area on the side where the zipper was as that part seemed to hang a little bit looser somehow. Overall I was very happy with it and felt beautiful! Rent the Runway made the experience great and very easy!

Very Comfortable
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented this dress for a friend's graduation ceremony. It was perfect for the semi-formal event and super comfortable all night. It did come quite low on me in the front, but nothing some fashion tape couldn't fix. The bottom is not as poofy as my pic shows. It was windy that night, it was actually quite streamlined. I'd definitely recommend this dress for almost any occasion.

I chose the size 0 and 2 and went with the 0 because the drape at neck was too floppy and exposing on the size 2. Great fit... super comfy. Size 2 had a faint cig smell...

Overall fit: True to Size

Dress was perfect for a friend's 50 th birthday party. Two warnings- neckline plunges. With a large chest, it therefore shows a lot of cleavage. I had to place some pins to stay even slightly covered. And the left side is shorter than I expected. I wore stockings.

perfect for y masquerade
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
perfect little black dress for my masquerade themed bday, the neckline was very free form so I opted to wear a bra that was matte black and more concealing, i know it peeked out in pics, but not so noticeable so it didnt bother me, if you are super modest you may want to be aware and take similar precaution

Great dress!
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Date
I wore this dress for a New Year's Eve dinner date and absolutely loved it. It definitely ran large on me--I almost always wear an 8, but the 8 in this dress was way too big at the top. The 6 fit perfectly. You'll almost certainly need the fashion tape that RTR sends for the top of the dress because it's loose and drapes pretty low, but with the tape it was perfect. Also, be aware of the cut on the higher side of the dress if you aren't planning on wearing tights. I personally thought it would have been fine without tights (I wore them because it was cold), but for others it may be cut too high. But aside from those caveats, I would definitely recommend this dress--it's so flattering and elegant!

I actually never wore this dress.
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
If you are short like me, I would suggest choosing a different dress. I never wore it because when I tried it on, the asymmetrical hem just made my hips look bulky and my lower body look a lot heavier. Plus, it did nothing for my already lacking height. However, if you're tall and thin, this will definitely look nice!

Both sizes I ordered were too large in the bust and didn't fit right. Also, they both smelled like moth balls! I'm very disappointed and now will have to go emergency shopping tomorrow and hope I find something.

I think this dress would be more appropriate for a younger woman. I'm tall, and the dress was very, very short. It also looked like it might have seen better days (maybe time to pull this one from the rentals?)

This was a back up dress since my first choice didn't fit, bummer! This one fit much better but the draped fabric on the bottom made it seem cheap. The rest felt pretty comfortable and was great for a fancy wedding in AC.

Overall fit: True to Size

I wore this dress for my niece's wedding and got so many compliments on it. I even told a few people that it was a rental and they couldn't believe it! My boyfriend liked it so much he said he would buy it for me, but I told him it wasn't for sale. Since then I have been checking constantly to see if it is being offered for sale. Unfortunately, not yet. But I will keep checking until it is. It fit me perfectly and the slit was not too high at all. I wore black stockings and strappy black heels, along with a stack of bangle bracelets that I also rented from RTR. ( I wanted to buy them too! )

I like the fit of this dress and that it's not cleavage-heavy (I was 5 months post partum when I wore it, and it hides any little lumpy bumpy bits), but the slit was too high--like show girl high. Probably better for a night out with friends.

Fun flirty dress - not for the timid
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I am a size 8-10 and the 8 fit well all lover (10 was too big) except: 1. It's cut high on the left side and rides up a bit when you sit down so takes some navigating. I wore Spanx and would have to make sure you couldn't see them when sitting. 2. The bust was a bit big so became too low cut - my tatas were more exposed than would have liked. I wore a black bra and it kept peeking out. The condition was excellent - no tears or rips. I think it would be great for someone a bit shorter and a fuller bust - 5'5 with a 36C would look terrific!

Fun dress, revealing on the bust
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Really cute dress that was perfect for a 1920's Speakeasy themed bachelorette party. Loved it but would caution against wearing it if you're smaller in the chest. I wore a black strapless bra and was comfortable with a little bit of it showing given the particular event I was at, but if you're going someplace more conservative or don't have a very full chest to fill it out, some fashion tape would probably be necessary.

I loved the simple top and the textured bottom. I wore it with black printed tights, black shoes and silver and pearl jewelry. If I had a lighter pair of tights, I probably would have opted to wear that instead to highlight for of the bottom of the dress, but it wasn't a big deal. I did have to use the fashion tape that came with the order (thank you RTR!) for the top on both the top of the cups and straps. It was a great dress that was comfortable to wear all night. It was light and fun!

The front came down a bit low but looked great with a long necklace and the short side of the dress was shorted than I expected but was totally appropriate with dark black tights. The style of the dress has a vintage flair that perfectly fit the feel of the event.

Slightly shorter (on the short side) than I thought, but so flattering it didn't matter. However, if you plan on wearing a spanx down onto your thigh this is not the dress for you. This dress is easy to wear. Good for any figure - shrinks the waistline of an hourglass, good to camo pear shapes or give volume to women with a smaller chest. Great find!

I only have a B-cup and I felt that that this dress needs a little bit bigger bust than that. There was lots of fabric just hanging around and I had to use a lot of fabric tape to keep it in place. It was impossible to find a bra that would not show under this dress. The neckline and under the arms is really deep cut, so I chose not to wear a bra at all. Now with my cup size I could get away with it and still keep the girls in place. After a few adjustments it was an overall fabulous dress that definitely turned some heads.

I wore this to a murder mystery party that was set in the 20's. This dress was perfect with a long strand of pearls. I normally wear a 6, but the 8 fit better. It might have had something to do with the fact that I had the flu and was not feeling so hot.
