Runs a little large but beautiful! The fabric and details are fantastic. Sould recommend for larger chests. Not super forgiving, get spanx

Pretty but runs large

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
Definitely runs a little large. I usually wear a 0 or 2 and I ordered the 2, which is the smallest size available. It was way too big everywhere, including the bust and especially on the butt. I didn't end up wearing it :(

It does run a tad bit large, but it still fit great especially for those with larger chests. Definitely recommend.

LOVE this dress!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was a hit at a city wedding. The material was beautiful, and I heard countless compliments on the color. The sizing does run large, and I could have worn the size 2 instead, but I did appreciate how easy it was to sit, move and dance in. Overall, I found this dress to be stunning for somebody with an athletic, hourglass figure. Since it is fitted that way, I wouldn't recommend it to someone who is petite, or very small in the chest or hips.

Absolutely Wonderful Dress!!!!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Large

This was my first time trying "RentTheRunway" and I must say that I plan to use it again and again! I have been telling all my girlfriends about this website. I normally wear a size 12 for my chest size and I purposely read the reviews before ordering the size 10 since everyone was saying that it ran big. The size 10 was absolutely perfect! I got so many compliments that I stopped counting! This dress was a perfect fit for all my curves!

Gorgeous Dress!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I am in Love with this dress! Very elegant and sophisticated... I was getting complements left and right. I ordered size 2 and back up 4, and was sent size 4 only which fit me like a glove. I guess order one size smaller and true size to get ideal fit.

This dress fit great and was perfect for the wedding I went to on NYE. It's a great length (I'm 5'10" so usually dresses run short on me - not this one!) and was very flattering.

Elegant and glam!

Overall fit: True to Size

Love this dress! The fabric has a subtle sheen that gives it just enough shine, and has some stretch to it so that it will definitely show off your curves. It's also a great length- not too short, so it's perfectly appropriate to wear to a wedding or an evening work-related event. Highly recommend!

Like this dress very much. Fits very nicely and the length was perfect. Didn't want to wear anything too tight or too short for my age (53). Very pretty and comfortable.

Great Fit - Figure flattering

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is better than expected as the material and fit is so glam! I think you can go down a size in most cases if you have smaller boobs and I think the gathering around the waist makes it look more figure flattering if its tighter. I wore this to a wedding in Brazil but could easily work for a Christmas party. Sad I don't own it, but thanks RTR for making this bomb!
