Everyone talked about this dress all night.... truly an unforgettable night thanks to Rent The Runway!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is a conversation starter for sure. Its beautiful colors and graphic patterns sing SUMMER. I wore it to a June event with navy high heels and a sky-blue straw summer clutch. Like other customers noted, the bust-line is on the narrow side and will not drape as it does on the model so bustier women will need a workaround. I used a silk lace camisole underneath. Even a size 10 was very close fitting. (I am a size 8) but thankfully I got it to zip and the sash covered the slit well so I was able to sit demurely. The length was fine. It hit just below the knee which was perfect for me. The dress is well made and the fabric is premium quality so it does not pull or stretch even with a close fit. Great summer cocktail party dress. Remember to go up one size.

This is a beautiful dress in person and shows up well on camera. Very classy looking. http://www.aprilgolightly.com/2011/09/rent-runway-dress/ I am usually a size 4 and 32-33 C in bras. I ordered a size 4. 6 was unavailable as alternative. I would buy it in a 6 to wear again. I had trouble with the front because my bra kept showing. The hollywood tape was failing me. Also, the dress was tight around my hip area. I had to wear spanks, but it was still pulling. Lastly, the length hit me as it shows in the picture here. Considering that I am 5'3", that was unexpected.

the top was too loose and it was a hard dress to find the perfect fit.

the top was too loose and it was a hard dress to find the perfect fit. I got the dress in three sizes and all three were not great. i ended up using fabric tape to help the top but my bobs still looked exposed. Would not order again. Beautiful dress otherwise

Shockingly tight bottom half..

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was gorgeous in person (much better than in the photo) but my back up size (a size larger than I normally wear!) was way too tight. It zipped up but was super fitted in the hip, thigh, backside and over the stomach. If I had a larger chest it would have been obscene. Anyway - the bottom half was too tight for me to move in or sit in and I couldn't wear the dress. Such a shame. Made me feel like a whale :(

AMAZING DRESS!

Size worn: None

I actually got this dress as a last minute backup with RTR called me the day my dresses were to ship and told me the size I ordered 2 months prior wasn't available:) While I was EXTREMELY disappointed, this was the backup they sent. The slit in front is a little high and if you have a fuller bust it may be a little "showy" but overall...it was a stunner....lots of compliments.

The dress was beautiful. I ordered a 10 (normally wear 8) after reading the reviews. I am athletic but it is better suited for straight body type. I was very disappointed.

Love it!Warning: for larger busts, dress is much sexier than it appears as it shows off the assets. Perfect for a beach wedding or glam cocktail party

This dress is amazing. I wore it to a beach wedding and it was a hit. The fit was perfect for me, but I'm small in the bust and not very curvy, so it might be worth going a size up if you're on the fence between 2 sizes. The slit in front goes up higher than I thought, but the sash keeps it modest. Fabric felt luxurious. Loved it!

This is a gorgeous dress. Unfortunately, I didn't get to wear it as the chest-bust ran small and I couldn't get it zipped. I would recommend a size up if you are either gusty or athletic on top.
