This dress fit true to size, I got the 16 and 14 and both fit well, but I felt more comfortable in the 16. I felt gorgeous, got lots of compliments on the dress, and was comfortable the entire night. So gorgeous!

I was skeptical when I brought this one out of the box - doesn't look as flattering on the hanger. But I absolutely ADORED it when I put it on! Another RTR success. Had to wear a backless bra.

I was in a room full of women in beautiful dresses and I felt glamorous.

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: Large

This dress has a real quality feel and look to it. The material is heavy enough that it gives a beautiful drape, the style is flattering and conservative at the same time. The bling at the cuffs is a simple and fun adornment. I ordered both a size 6 and a size 4. The 4 definitely fit better and I am a solid size 6. Enjoy!

It was the perfect dress for prom! I loved the fit. It hugged all the right curves and hit the imperfections. The only problem was the back was a little loose and showed my bra. I had to tape the dress to my back but other than that it was comfy, looked gorgeous, and was well worth it!

I wore this dress for my baby shower. I was 7 months pregnant so I needed a dress that stretched. My pre-pregnancy size is a 4. I wore this dress in a size 6 and it was perfect. It complimented my bump very well. Elegant, classy and sexy all in one. I didn't think I would be able to feel that way being so far along in my pregnancy. This was my first time trying Rent the Runway. Everything was wonderful!

This dress was so comfortable that I was able to eat a full meal in it and then sit in a freezing theatre for hours afterward without feeling constricted or cold. The cuffs give a great sparkly element and I was able to wear a standard bra with it- just make sure you wear one with straps that are wide set along the band. The slit kept it from being matronly and I received so many compliments. Loved it!

Black-tie wedding

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I'm five months pregnant and needed a dress for a black-tie wedding. This is not a maternity dress, but I saw that other pregnant women had worn it successfully and thought I would give it a try. It fit in my regular pre-pregnancy size (4R) and completely concealed my belly. It has an incredible drape in the front and a cut that is at once stretchy and form-fitting. It was also very comfortable and easy to wear. It is elegant but understated - you won't be the center of attention, but you will look and feel great. What you can't see from the pictures is the following: 1) There is a cut-out in the back (but I was still able to wear a regular bra and it was mostly covered by my hair). 2) There is a slit in the front of the dress, which makes it possible to walk, but also means that the dress falls open a little above the knee when you sit down/cross your legs. 3) There is a light spandexy dress lining that comes down from the bodice to the mid-thigh to help "smooth" your form (which is great!), but you have to make sure that you pull it all the way down when you are dressing, or it will bunch up around the hips. Once you have it in place it stays put.

Fit was great. The twist in the material in the front was really flattering. The details on the cuffs were understated and pretty. I paired it with simple sapphire earrings and louboutins. It arrived a day later than expected due to a snowstorm but luckily it arrived about 30 minutes before I had to leave and I was so pleased when it fit and was comfortable!

I ordered the 6L and the 8L. I didn't even need to try on the 6L because the 8L fit perfectly. I received so many compliments, especially on the back of the gown. I was apprehensive about my bust being too large for the gown, but I didn't have a problem with that at all. I was very satisfied with my rental and will be renting again!

Wedding

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
A stunning dress with subtle details. The zipper does zip up kind of weird, maybe because of the jersey fabric? My husband had an easier time zipping up when I held the top closed as he held the bottom of the zipper. With the details on the cuffs, I opted for stud earrings. No real need for statement pieces when you're wearing this dress. :) The long sleeves and length definitely give you the classy, elegant look. There is a slit in the dress! it shows when you walk, but it isn't too high. I am short, but with 4" heels, it didn't drag too much on the ground.

This dress was a replacement because the original dress I ordered was damaged and I loved it !At first I was a bit hesitant because I was afraid the dress would make me look much older, but once I got all dressed up it was perfect. I got many compliments throughout the night and I felt very confident in it. Hope this helps!

Wow this dress is awesome! As a short girl the length was great. I'm 5'1/5'2 and I wore 4 inch heels and the regular length was just hitting the floor no dragging fabric. I have a large bust and was able to wear my true size without having to size up for my bust, this is very rare! I also was able to wear a regular bra without it showing in the cut out back. I love the cuffs on the wrists of this dress :) all in all I felt amazing!

Dress fits true to size, very comfortable material. The midsection rouching is perfect to hide any belly. The detail on the cuffs is really pretty. I wore the long and it wasn't all that long ( I'm about 5'10" and it barely touched the ground without shoes). I would totally recommend it anyone!

Fit true to size. Given it's long sleeved and has bedazzle on the cuffs, I went light on the jewelry and bigger with the hair. The dress is navy (not black as i originally thought) but was perfect. Just double check your bra. While yes you can wear a normal bra, you have to be sure it doesn't peep through the back since there's an opening. Very flattering for someone with, well not a flat stomach :)

I liked it.

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The dress was comfortable, the color was nice. I really liked the details on the cuffs and the fact that they weren't too gappy for my skinny wrists. What I didn;'t like was the length. I'm only 5'5 and I had to wear flats, because it was too short for even a 3 inch heel. My ankles were showing!!!! I wish I had gotten the 8L but my flats were cute so I managed.

I was leery of the dress when I first got it, I rented a 6R and an 8R. the 6 was clearly worn more often and had a few flaws in the dress itself (stitching coming apart, etc). I wore the dress to an nye dinner so I wanted something that would fit me even with a food baby. it fit perfectly and was extremely comfortable. I felt very confident wearing the dress and received many compliments!

This dress made me feel simply beautiful!

Size worn: 14L
Rented for: Wedding
The dress was very comfortable. It was elegant and simple which is exactly the look I was trying to achieve for my dear friend's New Years Eve wedding. It is not black but navy blue which I knew from previous reviews. I ordered it in long and really happy I did. I'm 5'8" at first I thought the dress was too short for it being specifically long. Once I placed on my heals, it seemed to work and was not as short as I originally though it would be. I also rented a clutch purse and the necklace shown in the photo. It all went together perfect. My first time experience with RTR is an A and I'll definitely rent again!

I wore this to a gala and it was elegant and comfortable - a nice, understated, gorgeous dress.

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress would work really well for lots of body types. I have a bigger bust and this was a great choice for full coverage at a work event. The gathering in the front made me feel like my belly was covered really well and the sparkly cuffs gave it a dash of glam (the Lauren Merkin navy sparkle clutch matched perfectly!). I ordered the regular length (I am 5' 6") and I wish I had gone for the long size. I was originally planning on wearing 3-4 inch heels and it was way too short. I ended up purchasing 2-ish inch heels and I still think it was too short for my taste. The back was not too open, which I liked, and I just had to wear a bra that has movable straps - basically a strapless with the straps on and I only had to move them over a little bit. No need for tape.

While RTR didn't have a 2R in stock and the 4R was just slightly too big on me, this dress was lovely. Very flattering if you have an hourglass figure and conservative with just a touch of sex appeal with the open back. Everyone complemented me on a look they considered "Hollywood glam".

I wore this dress to a Mardi Gras ball in January! The sleeves were perfect for the cooler weather. The dress was more beautiful than in the picture and so comfortable! Great dress to dance in and move around! The dress is a little short, however it worked out considering I usually wear flats to these types of events! I would definitely recommend this dress and would possibly rent again!!!

This was my first time ever going to a very formal event and it was a very exciting experience.

Size worn: 12L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I first ordered this dress in a 12R and the dress was pretty short. It stopped at my ankles. The 12L was the perfect length however. The fit was great and very flattering for my figure. If you are kind of self conscious about your midsection then this dress is great. It wasn't uncomfortably tight anywhere. I really loved the beading on the cuffs of this dress because it makes this simple dress look more elegant. Another benefit of the beaded cuffs is that you don't have to worry about bracelets because they are like an accessory lol. I was very satisfied with this dress and with my experience with RTR in general.

Incredibly comfortable and stylish!!

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was a huge hit! The fit was phenomenal. In formal dresses, I usually have to go up a size or two to fit the bust line and tummy areas - this dress was SO stretchy and comfy, I could wear my normal size 6! The arms were quite skinny but fit me perfectly (there are actually hidden zippers at the wrists to help, in case you have larger arms!). I also couldn't tell from anyone else's reviews that there was a very tasteful split up the side/front -It was a nice surprise, and made the dress even more flattering! The fabric is great (not too thick!) and the sparkle gives it that extra fun factor! The back is stunning and you CAN wear a regular bra with this! (just make sure the straps don't come in too close in the back). There's an underskirt to this dress too that is short and sucks you in - you truly would not even have to wear spanx with this one, if you'd rather forgo those. I am 5'1" and with 4" heels, the length was perfect - skimmed the floor but not so long that I would trip. It was a beautiful dress and one I would highly recommend to those looking for a long sleeve option.

Felt amazing in this dress!

Size worn: 12L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I absolutely loved this dress. It fit perfectly. It was just the right length with 3inch heels. I loved the cutout back. I wore it to a black tie event that was in a huge warehouse and it was quite cold but I was nice and toasty with the high neck and long sleeves. It definitely is a conservative bu sexy look with frame hugging fabric. Perfect for someone with an hourglass figure. The official fit notes say that it is best for someone with an A-C cup but I have a D cup (on the smaller side of D I suppose) and the chest was not too tight at all. I also have big upper arms (and not in a "I'm so muscular" way!) and was really worried that the arms might be too tight but they weren't at all. The ruching at the tummy/waist perfectly hid my "I've had two babies" belly - I didn't even wear Spanx! Great fit. Great dress!

Gorgeous, comfortable, classic, and perfect for a winter Gala!

Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented this gown for my firm's Gala. I had rented both the 6L and the 8L, since sometimes the designer gowns are cut smaller, but the 6L fit perfectly. The fabric of the gown is stretchy enough that there is "give" if you need it, but the style (with the cinched waist) is so flattering. I wore the gown with 3 1/2 inch heels and it was perfect. I did wear a strapless bra with it since I wasn't sure if a regular bra's straps would show through in the back, but you could probably get away with a regular bra and just use double-sided tape to keep the straps hidden. I received so many compliments on the gown, and I was so comfortable all night long. I HIGHLY recommend this rental!
