Was so comfortable and easy to accessorize. I wore it to a daytime Bat-Mitzvah. it hid all my flaws
Pros: True to Size, flattering fit, dressy but not over the top. easy to accessorize, shiny but simple. Cons: None come to mind.

Comfortable dress, nice for a cocktail/evening wedding
My normal size is a 4, but I went down to the size 2 because it was a bit loose. With this style dress it looks better snug. I am a 34B but there was room for more in the chest - nothing that made too much of a difference given the color and the gathering of the fabric.

The day was great. Lots of compliments on the dress.
The dress was very comfortable. Perfect for an outdoor wedding in Spring with the long sleeves. Will order from Rent the Runway again. A++++

Great cocktail party and everyone loved the dress!
The dress was great. Received lots of complements. I normally wear a size 4 and I ordered the 4 and 2 because of some of the reviews that said it runs large. I did not find this - the size 4 fit perfectly. It is a very comfortable dress and I loved the long sleeves for the cooler weather. The dress is a jersey material and drapes very flatteringly - not too clingy but still close-fitting. My husband told me I should buy it!

Great dress!
I really liked this dress. I attended a small wedding dinner and this was perfect, just enough sparkle to make the night shine. The fit was true to size, I used a little double stick tape since its a faux wrap (as not to flash other guests) but it fit wonderfully.

Great sparkly dress
The dress fit exactly as sized, if a little large. It was comfortable and easy to move around in. The dress I got did show quite a bit of wear, with pilling on the arms and bodice. Working with RTR was very easy and straightforward even when my luggage was lost on the way home and return was delayed.

I loved this dress...it was perfect for a holiday party. Got tons of compliments.
I expected to wear the size 2 as usual, but actually went with the 4 cause the sleeves on the 2 were so tight, and the butt was snug too. It was in perfect condition and really looked great.

Stunning, comfortable & easy to wear
Wore this dress to a fall charity event and was thrilled with it! The cotton makes it comfortable & easy to wear, and the sequin detail adds sparkle. The sleeves run tight, so be sure to order your true size. Overall thrilled with the dress, as well as the order & return process.

This was my back up dress. Very pretty gray but the fabric is SUPER pill-y.
In a dark room you wouldn't notice the pills but it's very noticeable in better lighting. Don't wear this dress if it's outside in the daytime because the fabric is noticeably worn. That said, it was a very pretty dress. It was my back up dress and I didn't wear it. There was room in the hips, I probably would wear a 4 in this dress.

This dress is a head-turner. Great style for an hourglass figure!
Fitted but not tight. Tried the 4, could've worn the 6 possibly.

I'm writing this review unfortunately almost a year after I wore it. Had a great time, compliments!
This dress was very comfortable, I wore my usual size, I felt very snazzy in it and danced the night away very easily in it. It was form fitting but not restrictive and bra friendly.

Wish I could have worn it!
This dress was gorgeous! The arms were a little tight and it required a "dressing buddy" in order to get it zipped. Because I was at a hotel by myself, I wasn't able to wear this dress.

Stylish, yet so easy to wear!
I rented this dress for an evening wedding reception, but think it could easily work for other formal occasions. Up close, the outer material looks and feels like a soft cotton tee, covered in a pattern or little silver sequins. Inside, nice and satiny smooth. Because the sequins are small, you don't outshine the bride or look gaudy - it glimmers beautifully! My soul mate couldn't keep his eyes off of me, and I was complimented by others on the look - but I didn't have to suffer for it (dress wise, anyway). Hooray! A few tips: if you have a modest bosom, a padded pushup bra is a must. With a size 2 top, and pear shaped 4/6 hips, I found the 4 just made it (very close to true). If you are unsure, size for your hips. This dress hangs beautifully, but take note- when taking photos in the dress, face forward or left side (where the neat dangle part is), otherwise it will artificially emphasize the appearance of your belly due to the way it drapes (see my two photos for a comparison). Don't let that one down side discourage you from getting this dress though - when you are in it, you'll love it and so will others!

Stunning, FANTASTIC & Comfortable
Received so many compliments of this dress! It was stunning and comfortable. The material is jersey with a lining - so it was easy to wear, and the front faux wrap made it easy to hide any insecurities. The long sleeves were perfect for a March St. Patty's themed winter wedding in New England - was happy with it.... I would definitely re-rent! The V-neck is on the plunging side - as I'm petitie and small chested, it wasn't a big deal for me plus the necklace was a rental too (green for the Irish) and it fell appropriately with the neckline. Felt like a million dollars!!

Love The Dress!
This dress fit perfectly! I wore it for an evening wedding and it was just the right dress. It must have been the right dress for the occassion, because someone else there had the same dress!Length and fit we're both great. Lots of people have mentioned it's very sparkly and it is in person. Got a lot of compliments.

2 random women came up to me when I was out to let me know how amazing and beautiful the dress was!!
I thought this dress was a wrap dress, but it isn't. It just looks like one. Luckily, the size fit perfectly. The material is very soft and it is very sparkly. I loved it. I actually want to buy this dress, it is amazing!!!

Wasn't pleased.
This dress, while it fit well in the waist and bust, I could not move my arms in it at all, once zipped. I was not able to wear this dress. The material was nice, but it looked a bit worn around the cuffs.

This beats a LBD any day!!!!
This dress is so beautiful and fun to wear. It looks great on and the fabric is soft and comfortable. I felt happy and festive wearing it. It is a bit hard to zip up, my husband had to zip me into it, but once I was in the dress I was very comfortable--I wore it with spanx and a light-weight black cami underneath because it is rather low cut. Overall I would recommend this dress for any shape or size. I usually wear a 4 or a 6 and in this dress, the 6 was perfect. This is a beautiful, comfortable dress!

First RTR experience was top notch.On time delivery,great product,easy return.Highly recommend!!!
LOVED the dress! Great fit, comfortable jersey fabric, got multiple complements. Unlike a lot of cocktail dresses, I didn't feel like I had to constantly adjust ior tug at it all night. The only minor downside is that the long sleeves do make it a little warm. Wish I could have kept it forever!

Beautiful dress! Loved the sparkle and the design. Perfect for the symphony!
I tried the size 2 and 4. The 2 was snug in the shoulders, but the 4 was just right. It helped to wear a slightly padded bra.

Didn't like feel of fabric...didn't feel like a cocktail quality dress...felt frumpy.
Not a bad dress just not for me...I also didn't like the extra hanging fabric in front...felt heavy. Ended up not wearing it.

This dress has seen better days ...
1st time doing RTR - was fun but I was disappointed in this dress. Here is why: #1 - Dress seemed past its prime. Many sequins are missing, threads are sticking our from seams along the inner arms. Also, the material is pilled like it has been laundered many times over. Also, THE LINING HANGS OUT. Seems the dress fabric has shrunk and the lining sticks out 1/4 inch from the hem - not pretty. #2 - Usually wear size 4 but dress in this size was considerable too small. As others have said, it does not stretch so if you have broad shoulders this dress will be hard to wear and you will not be able to raise your arms. It was too tight across my shoulders but a bit too roomy through the hips. I ended up wearing the size 6 - glad I ordered larger for the extra dress. Also, on me dress was pretty short, but wearable. #3 - Overall, it is pretty and I did wear it, although I was glad the lighting was dim so the flaws didn't show. Dress has a lot of sparkle and I can see it being flattering for many body types.

Good from afar, but far from good.
This is a lovely dress, but I did not wear it. The pictures do not truly reflect how sparkly this dress is. It would be fine for an evening cocktail party, but a little to much for an early evening wedding. I was disappointed in the fabric. With the European mills producing such beautiful fabrics that are also wearable, I see no reason to be uncomfortable. This dress is cut form fitting, and looks great when standing. It would be great if we were mannequins, but we ladies move. This dress is not for you if you want to raise your arms. There is absolutely no give to the fabric. So old school technology.

Classy, elegant and eye catching
I wore this dress to a political fundraiser and loved everything about it! It was true to size and very comfortable. The fabric feels just like cotton, and the sequins really make the gray pop. The V cut a little deep which was just fine with me, but be sure to have the right bra. Also the sleeves were a little tight but not bothersome. I received many compliments and was a great event to dinner/cocktails dress. Highly recommend!

AWESOME DRESS!!
I thought this dress was perfect, in every way. It was a lot more sparkly in person- and that is what I hoped for. I did not think it was over-the-top sparkly. It was a perfect dress for my occasion- I wore it for my brother's wedding. I am not sure I have ever receieved so many compliments about a dress before. So many people told me I should purchase it! Other reveiws said it showed a lot of cleavage- I did not have that problem. The fit was very true to size. This was my first experience with RTR and I will most definitely be back. It was absolutely perfect.

Was my back-up dress and I ALMOST wore it, but loved my first choice dress too.
This dress fit great and was super comfortable. The only downside was that it showed a little too much cleavage for the occasion (a slightly conservative wedding). This was my back-up dress so I never really intended to wear it but it was a tough choice. If I had a black camisole to wear underneath, I would definitely wear it in the future.

Great Way To Add Some Sparkle
Rented this dress as a backup, to the Trina Trunk Tulip dress and thought it was flattering and fit true to size. In the end wore the other dress, because it was more festive, but would wear this on another occasion where ya needed more subdued sequence.

This was my first experience with RTR and I'm hooked already. What a seamless, positive experience!
The dress fit like a glove. I have never received so many complements, most from strangers! I usually wear a two but ordered a four in case. The two was perfect.

Choose Wisely
I loved this dress, it was really cute and fun! Be warned it is far more "sparkly" in person than what shows on the photos. I picked this dress for a wedding and I had to go out and get a black cover to tone it down a bit. Really great dress for a night out with the girls or new years, I wouldn't recommend it for a wedding.

Amazing! Perfection! Gorgeous!
This is the first time I've used the service and definitely not my last!!! My entire experience from start to finish was incredible! It is such an easy process! The selection is amazing! I loved my dress so much. I am going to look into buying it. I've already referred many friends. Even my husband was impressed with the process and product and he's difficult to please. Thank you for this service! I am so happy my friend introduced me to you!
