This was my backup dress, but it flattered my shape more than my first choice. Wore the 2R to a gala (with pointy flats, shh!) so I could dance all night.

I rented this dress for the Marine Corps Ball. Great thing about renting, only I had this dress!

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size

This dress fit amazing. I wore super high heels because I'm short (5'3") and did not want to spend the night stepping on the dress. I chose a size 6 & 8. I miss judged how much weight I had lost, and might have been able to go with a 4 because the chest was made for a bit more than I have now. But this was so easy, and the dress looked great, I'm going to do RTR from now on!

Loved it!

Overall fit: True to Size

I loved this dress. It looked like blue lisuid in the pictures. I wear between and 10 and a 12 but the 10 fit me very well and was even a little large on top, perhaps a size down may have fit the bust perfectly. But I got compliments all night. Dress photogaphs beautifully. It was also my first experience using RTR and so efficient and everything worked beautifully in terms of getting to me and returns. There was even a complimentary bag of handy dress adjustment goodies like seamtape and body tape. thank you RTR for the great service.

Poise, grace, and a perfect fit.

Overall fit: True to Size

My second time renting from RTR and once again I was beyond impressed. Based on the reviews I went with the long length. At 5'4 I think either the long OR the regular length would have been fine, but I threw on some extra high heels so that I wouldn't trip. Based on photos I thought the dress would be heavy and scratchy, but it was neither. The dress gave me the confidence and poise I needed to get through a very emotional and powerful evening.

Not your basic black dress!

Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I ordered the 4L and the 6L, there really wasn't much difference between the sizes. I went with the 4L because it fit better up top. As the other reviews mentioned, this dress runs short. The length for me was perfect. I wore 2-3" heels and the dress was not dragging on the floor - which I loved. Makes it much easier when you hit the dance floor!!! Tons of compliments. Form fitting but not revealing. The picture of the dress really doesn't do it justice. It is really beautiful!

I wore this dress to my junior/senior prom and I received compliment after compliment all night!

Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Okay so I'm a I-need-the-smallest-size-you've-got kinda girl. I ordered the 2R and the 2L since 2 was the smallest size available. Neither of them fit right. I should have known that though. The problem was the length of the shoulder strap. They were both too long. I made it work though- my sister and I pinned it up and it fit perfectly and no one knew the difference! Since the pinning made it a little shorter, The 2L was the perfect length with my 5 inch heels. The dress was absolutely stunning! The color was so rich and the sequins were perfect! It wasn't too flashy but very elegant. I don't think I've ever received so many compliments on a dress before! The return process was so easy as well! I will definitely be renting from RTR again!

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size

I was worried about renting a dress since my event was out of town but the back up size eased my mind a bit. This dress is much prettier in person and has a great sparkle to it. I did read reviews ahead of time so I bought 2in heels to go with it and they worked great. I wore this dress for about 5hrs and it did get a bit itchy in the arm area at the end of the night but not enough to make it unbearable.

I wore the dress for my first Army Ball. I knew I needed a gown that was conservative, but not boring. This dress fit the bill as sexy and classy. You can easily wear a strapless bra and not worry about tugging it up all night. The dress is roomie in the mid-section so you can eat and breathe easy. I thought it would have been more fitted, but it was better for me that it wasn't. The dress did not chafe under my arms, and I felt quite lovely. From a side silhouette it does not make you look thin, but the front give a great shape and that's what you see in photographs.

I loved this dress at first sight on Rent the Runway and it disappoint. It was comfortable and so glamorous. Perfect strangers said "You look beautiful" when I walked by and women were ooh-ing and aah-ing at the dress. The fit was smooth and flattering without being cheap or clingy. I wore the 6 long, which was just long enough in my 3 1/2" heels. I'm 5'9". Highly recommended!

At first, I did not like the dress. I was so upset. However, I had no choice but to wear it. The night of the event, I FELL IN LOVE! The dress was the PERFECT length, very comfortable, and matched the event and my husband's uniform perfectly. I LOVED THIS DRESS!!!! The only draw back is the shoulder sequins dug into my skin all night and left a fairly large red mark around my entire arm the next day!

"That dress really stands out in a crowd!"

Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
Unusually a size 4 and the 2 long fit perfectly. Photos do not do it justice, it is stunning in person and turns heads. Was the perfect choice for an Air Force ball. I received compliment after compliment from men and women, but the best was a gentleman who went out of his way because he just had to tell me that I really stood out in a crowd, in a good way. My husband standing right next to me agreed. I have never seen a man so genuinely overwhelmed by a dress! The sequins give it a very expensive look, but don't add weight. I was surprised how light and comfortable it was. It managed to be sexy yet classy - a winning combination!

This was actually the alternate dress that my stylist sent because my back-up dress was too damaged to send in time for my event. So, great service!! This dress accentuated all my curves and was actually comfortable to wear. It is a beautiful, shimmering color. I am 5'7 1/2" and wore 3" heels, so I probably could've gone with a 2R and wore less heel. Overall, great dress!! Would rent it again.

Dress was very flattering and forgiving for a momma-to-be!

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Dress ran true to size through bust and waist but had enough room to give to allow a 5-month pregnant belly to squeeze into the dress. I felt very glamorous without having to feel maternity frumpy. Fabric was a little scratchy on the outside but was fine on the inside. Had to be careful I didn't catch my jewelry. Loved the deep blue color (while a few other women also were in similar blue, this dress did stand apart). Got lots of compliments.

Size worn: 10R
Overall fit: True to Size

Rented this for a black tie affair for work. I was better dressed than most of the senior executives. Got a ton of compliments and lots of head turning. Had my hair done in a curly up do, some nice bling jewelry to complete the look. I'm almost 5'4" and had 3" heels on, the dress length was just right. My toes peaked out and the back of the heels did get snagged a couple of times so just be careful as you walk. The dress is well made, great quality, and I like the small sequins which gave it a smooth look. All in all, it's a beautiful and elegant dress without showing too much skin.

I wore this for my boyfriend's military ball last year. We work together so we both knew everyone at the ball, and I can't tell you how many people just stopped and stared, jaws open, when they saw me come in with this dress on. It is a true stunner!! It fit very true to size and I felt like a million bucks, like the absolute most beautiful girl in the room. The sequins catch the light just right that makes it sparkle beautifully. The other great thing is that it photographs so well! It was comfortable and I honestly would wear it again this year if I wasn't going to the same ball with the same people,haha :)

Catching people checking me out from the back as I walked by...

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
First thing, this dress arrived 2 days earlier than scheduled, much to my surprise. I paid for 3 days, but actually had the dress in my possession for 5 days. My friends said "you've got to find some other event to wear it to before you return it" Wore this to this year's Christmas party for the Medical Staff at our hospital. Being a younger female physician, I wanted a dress that was hip and edgy and would stand out from a crowd, but I also wanted it to be classy and elegant. It was supposed to make a statement, after all. Also, I had a baby 2 years ago and haven't worked out a single time since then, so I needed something that showcased the best parts of me and concealed the not so desirable ones. This dress fit that bill perfectly-- classic lines/great silhouette, awesome shade of blue, just the right amount of shimmer (the sequins were tiny, so the dress did NOT look cheap AT ALL). The fabric moved really well too, so I can imagine it would be comfortable moving and dancing in it. Got a lot of compliments from everybody. More recently I have been wearing a size 4, but I got a size 2 for backup. The 2 was a better fit. I would not be quick to say that the dress runs large though, because of all the changes with my body post pregnancy, I'm never quite certain what dress size I am. The length though runs on the short side (I'm 5'6" and even barefoot the R length dress was a good inch off the floor). Had to wear different shoes that what I intended, which was a bummer. Overall, I would highly recommend this dress as a much less predictable alternative to the typical long black dress. Thanks for a great experience, RTR!

I received so many compliments from men and women on how classy and elegant I look.

Size worn: 10R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I usually wear a size 12 but I am short so I was worried. I wanted to order a 10L and a 10R after reading the reviews but the 10L was unavailable. I am so glad that I at least able to get the 10R because the 12R would have been too big. I have a small waist and the dress accentuated that asset. I am a 34DD which made me nervous but the dress fit like a glove. It was amazing. Being 5'2'' I really didnt want my shoes to show but it was ok. I think the 10L would have been too long because my heels were only about 3''.

Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: True to Size

The dress ran true to size. I also had the 6L to try but it was a little large through the bust but the 4L fit perfectly. It was almost too short for me, being 5'9, but I opted for a 2" heel and it worked out perfectly. Dress was extremely comfortable for the most part...I danced the night away in it without a problem...it did rub a little around the arm hold because of sequins, but nothing terrible. Lot's of compliments on color and fit. This was my first rental with RTR and it will not be my last! Great service!

I was a little nervous because the next size up wasn't available and I didn't pick a back up dress so I was thrilled that the dress fit true to size with the exception of being a little tight in the chest.... But once the zipper was up, it looked and felt great. This was my first time renting and I will never buy a gown again! This was a great first time experience. I'll be renting again in October for another Gala!!

This dress is Amazing!!

Rented this dress for a wedding and didn't want to take it off! Dress is fully lined and stretchy so it is beyond comfortable and very light weight. It literally fit me perfectly and I received one compliment after the next all night long. There was no bunching or gathering anywhere, it did not rub under the arm pits (like some other reviews have noted), it was just gorgeous and I will definitely be renting this dress again! I wore 3 inch heals and the dress was the perfect length. Also, I was able to wear a regular convertible bra with it that has straps you can adjust based on the top you are wearing and the dress covered it perfectly and stayed in place all night, even on the dance floor. I also rented earrings to go with it that were so elegant and stunning, I seriously felt like a million bucks!! I highly recommend this dress!

I've never worn a head-to-toe sequined dress before and wanted to try it! I was very happy with the old-Hollywood look that obscured my extra 10 lbs. quite well. I have a 32D chest and the 4R I wore (the smaller of the two dresses I requested) fit with room to spare. I would say this is a good look for hourglass figures. The length was perfect for me in 3 inch heels.

The dress I ordered was suddenly available in my back up size, and I didn't see the email until after I needed to ask for a new dress so I was sent something similar. It turns out my first choice was too big, and the second choice looked even better on me. This dress was very comfortable. I was worried about the one shoulder but it never gave me problems. Tons of compliments all night long.

I ordered a 4L and a 6L as back up. I ended up going with the 4L. Its true to size. Im 5'3 and based on the reviews, i ordered a Long because i wanted to play it safe. Turns out, it was a bit longer than i wanted it. But other than that, it was divine. I received so many compliments. I felt like a mermaid. This is my first time ordering from RTR and its definitely not my last. Im already looking into thanksgiving outfits!

Everything about the whole process was smooth and easy!

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress came hours before expected, which was nice. I tried on both dresses and had no issues. The dress was as expected although it seemed a little worn, which from what I'd read knew it could be the case. I got an 8R and a 10R and the length was perfect on both. The only issue for me on both dresses was the bust was a little loose. I'm smaller busted, so had I worn the 10 I would have needed to use a safety pin to tighten up the material because it was too stretched out. The 8R was just a tiny bit tight on me in the waist area, but nothing that bad. I did notice that when I sat down that the bust on the 8R was a little saggy; so again, if you're smaller busted you might notice the same issue. I think I'm the only one who noticed it though; nobody else seemed to see the flaws. I got tons and tons of compliments. For jewelry, I wore sparkly silver stuff. I went for the extra surprise bling and probably would not do that again. I thought the print said it was $15 extra for a $30+ piece, but the bracelet I got was only ok in my book. And I think the rental for it was only $20, so it wasn't that much of a savings. It was a pretty piece, but a little dull and lackluster to me. I did have issues with the drop box. I don't know why it says to have the return in the box by noon, but the first one I got to was jammed. Someone had placed a larger package in the opening, and it got stuck so the door would not open all the way for me to put my package in. So had to go to a second UPS drop box location. Be sure you have a backup available, or don't leave it till the last minute! Thanks Rent the Runway!

FAB-U-LOUS.

Size worn: 10R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this dress to a dear friend's black-tie wedding reception at the penthouse suite of the San Francisco Fairmont. It was nearly perfect. As you can see from the photo there's a little tricky spot...can't remember what they call it when you have that little boob spillage over the side of a strapless neckline, but whoomp there it is! Still, over all, it was elegant and comfortable. I felt like a million bucks. The color is a beautiful navy and I'd ordered some shimmery, navy snakeskin high-heeled sandals that went perfectly with it. Loved the dress and was very happy with my first RTR experience.

Classy enough for a work event, sexy enough to still get noticed!

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size

This dress was even better than I expected. It wasn't my first choice, but I waited until the last minute, so I chose this thinking it would be just okay. Ended up loving it! Very comfortable, very forgiving with the inner lining holding everything in place with the sequins flowing and hugging in all the right places.

Gorgeous and flattering.

Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Gorgeous dress. Super flattering. I ordered the 4 and 6 R first but while they both fit, they were short. I called RTR and they shipped me a 6L since they were out of 4L. I'm 5'4'' and the R didn't hit the ground when I was barefoot. I was able to wear the 6L with 3 inch heels and it just hit the ground just like it does on the model in the RTR image. The 6L was just a tad loose on top so I had to at times pull the dress up to make sure it was in place, it didn't bug me though and never looked odd. A 4L would have likely been a bit more snug and stayed in place better.

Very elegant!

Size worn: 12R
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented the regular and as you can see, my shoes were slightly visible. This wasn't important to me but should be considered. I'm 5'4" and wore 2 1/2 inch heels so if you're any taller get the long. The fabric had stretch which is essential for my shape which is very much a pear and curvy. Size 12 Dresses are usually snug on the bottom half and roomy on the top and this was no different so I'd call it true to size. It was comfortable and very sparkly even in the dark. If you're looking for something conservative yet fun I'd recommend.
