Formal Christmas Party
The dress fit really well. You can easily wear a normal bra and slimming undergarments with comfort in this dress. I got the long, but felt that it was still about 1-2 inches too short. I got a lot of compliments!

It was a star-studded awards show!
I rented both a 22WR and 20WR and wore the smaller, which still had a lot of give. I am in the process of losing weight and was very surprised that the smaller one fit (according to the measurements, the larger one was appropriate sizing). I felt elegant, yet covered. I actually hope to purchase a very similar gown. It is great if you aren't comfortable showing your arms, as a plus size woman. I would rent this again.

A safe and beautiful choice for those self-conscious about wearing a gown
Rented this for the Mother of my best friend- she never dresses up and it was a very big occasion for her. While she was hesitant to try the dress at first, once she did she was sold. All night long she kelt tell me she felt amazing, she got tons of compliments— an all around hit.

Mother of the Bride dress...perfect!
This dress was absolutely elegant and beautiful. I had purchased two mother of the bride dresses months before the wedding but was not in love with either of them. When I went online to check out what Rent the Runway had in my size, I fell in love with this dress. It was perfect! The sheer sleeves covered my arms and it fit perfectly. The V-neck was very flattering as I am heavy on the top. The best part was the length was perfect! I am only 5'3" and didn't need to wear really high heels. It was so easy to order, I called, and the very next day my size was delivered to the store in Las Vegas where I live. I rented this two days before the wedding! I could not have been happier! I will be back!

Lots of compliments on the dress.
Very pretty dress with a flattering fit. Material had give, which made it especially comfortable. I'm 5'6", and the dress length would have been too short for me with high heels . Fortunately, I found flat, jeweled sandals at Zappos that matched beautifully.

Almost the best decision I ever made!
Four days before my son's wedding I decided I hated the $300 dress I bought which I also had professionally tailored to add shirred sleeves and fit like a glove. Found renttherunway.com, rented this dress and was absolutely and positively pleased that I did so! I received so many compliments and felt like a million bucks! I will NEVER buy a one-time-wear dress again! Thank you so very much!!! Just as a side note, I am 5'7.5" and definitely needed the long length. Anyone want to buy an Adrianna Pappel size 14 one-of-a-kind dress?

Perfect for a gala event!
I was invited at very (VERY - as in 4pm for a 6pm event) short notice for a Gala and was so lucky that we have a RTR storefront in NYC. When I first saw this on the hanger I thought it would be way too frumpy, and I'm totally not a rhinestone person, but when I tried it on it was absolutely perfect. Very flattering of all my curves (and lumps and bumps), plenty of room in the busy area, and the sleeves were roomy and flattering. I'm pretty solidly a 16, and my only complaint was that the dress was a bit too big - I had some gapping at the bust (which could have been fixed with the right bra or a pin, but I was in a rush!). A beautiful dress for a lovely night. Thanks so much to the RTR staff in the NYC store for getting me all set so quickly.

At 31 weeks pregnant, all a woman wants to feel is beautiful. Rent the Runway made that possible!
This dress was a perfect maternity dress for a black tie occasion. I wore it to my fathers wedding on Valentine's Day. I got so many compliments. It fit a pregnant belly perfectly. I usually wear a size 8 long or 10 long. I'm 5'9" and at 31 weeks pregnant 170 lbs. I originally rented another dress that didn't work, but Rent the Runway overnighted me two other dresses to pick from. Excellent customer service! I highly recommend this dress and the company in general.

What sixe did you wear? I am using this dress for one of my bridesmaids for my upcoming wedding and she will be 30 weeks pregnant at that time and she is normally about the size you stated you normally are. Could you pl,ease reply back and let me know what size you wore so we can try to get a general idea of what size we might need?

I was a bit apprehensive since it was the 1st time using the site and I wasn't disappointed at all!
Perfect fit, forgiving of my belly area and was nice and loose on the arms. I loved everything about the dress! It was heavy and high quality! So many compliments! #NAACPImageAwards

I did not wear this dress to my event. I felt it was a bit too 'prom' and not as sophisticated
True to size. Good for large bust with empire waist detail. I normally wear a 16-18, and this 18 was a bit large, even in the bust. I am a 34 JJ.

Super Easy System would do again in a heart beat
i wish I would have double checked the rent the runway sizing chart. I went off my normal size that I would purchase in a dept store and forgot that better cloths are usually a size smaller. this dress still fit and looked great but I could have gotten it a size smaller and would have felt better in the dress. the dress was great quality and exactly as pictured. worked well for large bust and larger waist.

Nice deep navy blue color and the sheer sleeves were perfect in the hotel air conditioning without having to fuss with a wrap or shawl.

My daughter looked like a princess walking down the aisle, and I felt like a queen in my gown.
The fit is true to size. I am full figured and often have trouble getting a dress to fit my larger bust and smaller waist. This fit the bill perfectly. I ordered a 14W and 16W (just in case) - but wish I had trusted my instincts and ordered both 14W regular and long lengths. The regular length dress came just to the top of my foot - I would have preferred a bit more length. All in all this was a wonderful experience. I will definitely be recommending and using Rent the Runway again.

Beautiful dress! Almost didn't select it if it wasn't for the helpful stylist.
This dress was a replacement dress after my first dress didn't fit. I was hesitant to select this dress because I had passed it up several times while searching for a gown to wear to a wedding. Didn't really think it was my style and flattering. But when my selected dress didn't fit with less than 24 hours until my event, I figured I would give it a try. The dress was amazing! Loved it the first moment I put it on. I got it in 18W but should have went with my true size as the dress fits true to size and has a little stretch. I felt amazing, got plenty of compliments and it confirmed for me that I will always use RTR for formal dresses. Overall an excellent experience, not only with the dress, but the RTR staff as well!

A really fun night in a great dress!
The dress was nice. The style is very forgiving and was a nice weight for a cool spring night. The dress fit true to size. However, it was just a tad too short. Based on a review I read for someone that was 5'6" that wore a long, I decided to go with the Regular length as I am 5'5". I should have gone with the long but I was able to wear it with kitten heels so it wasn't too bad.

A magical evening at my cousin's wedding.
This was a very beautiful dress. The fit was true to size and the touch of spandex made it very forgiving. The fabric was very luxurious and was impeccably made. I received so many compliments and I felt very glamorous in this dress.

Too tight!
This dress looks amazing in the picture, but the fit is pretty matronly in real life. I am a D cup, and the bust was huge on me. Had I worn it to my event, i would have needed some sort of camisole just to look semi-modest. The waist area is very tight and unforgiving. I measured myself and two well fitting dresses very carefully before renting, and neither size I got came close to fitting. I believe it is the cut of the dress though- the bottom is cut very tight, and the top is quite large. The dress is beautiful, and well made, but one of the zippers kept sticking- which made me very nervous that I would rip the dress. It is just not ideal for am apple, like me.

Gorgeous dress! I got so many compliments. Couldn't think of anything more elegant for 50th bday.
The fit was good, definitely not too tight. I wondered if there had been a size 12W if that would have fit best. I'm 5"6 and 175 lbs. I ordered Tall vs Regular based on the chart as I just made Tall at 5"6. It was a bit long. My heels were probably 3 inches, I may have had to wear super high heels to accommodate the length. But better that than a highwater dress! Had a lovely time for my 50th birthday. Thanks so much!

True to size, although wish i had trusted my size!
I thought I was a size 18 based on the measurements provided, but turns out a 16 would have been perfect (which is my normal size). However, even though the dress was a bit baggy, it was not noticeable, so I wore it anyway. I'm 5'9", wore kitten heels, and the length was perfect. It would have been truly stunning had I trusted the "true to size" comment, but I received many compliments nonetheless!
