My first work banquet. Great dress

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small

Rented this dress for an award banquet. It was gorgeous yet still elegantly simple. It fit slightly on the smaller size (I ended up wearing the 6 instead of the 4 and I am usually a true 4 dress size) Great length, just above the knee. Beautiful material and great color. Love the sleeves--they are cap but split in the middle

Absolutely loved this dress! I got so many compliments on the color alone, which is much brighter and bolder than the website depicts. I am typically a 2-4, and the 4 fit me perfectly. Definitely size up for backup! I tried the 2 on in a store and it was way too tight!

This dress is beautiful! I rented it for a bridal shower and it was classy but still sexy. The color is bold and gorgeous and really pops! I rented a 4 and a 6 but was only shipped the 4 due to a mix up with hurricane Sandy and the 4 ended up fitting perfect. It accentuates your curves very well! May I also say the Rent The Runway team gave superb service due to the circumstances on the East Coast... you guys are wonderful!

Amazing color!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
First and foremost....the color of this dress is amazing. It's a deep vibrant royal purple and definitely makes you stand out in a crowd. The skirt hit me about 2 inches above the knee. I ordered the 6 and the 8 and ended up wearing the 8 for the wedding, but probably would have gone with the 6 for date night for a sexier fit. Overall beautiful dress.

Very pretty-beautiful purple color!

This dress fit true to size and the seams were very flattering. Normally I hate cap sleeves (because I have broad shoulders) but I still thought it looked great. BEAUTIFUL purple color. I ended up wearing something different for my law school graduation, but this would be perfect for another event, such as an office party, etc.

I loved this dress. It fit perfect!. The dress was extremely comfortable and the length was just right. The dress is much more purple then the photo shows, which I loved. I wore it to the Lion King on Broadway for Valentines Day. its dressy enough without feeling over dressed.

Classy But Fun

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The length of this dress is great- I have longer legs and feel self conscious in short dresses but this hit nicely mid-to-low thigh. The fabric is a bit stiff, and I ended up wearing a 6 rather than my standard 4 so that I could eat and dance without feeling like a stuffed sausage. It's a great bright color!

This was my first RTR rental, and I am pleased at how well it went. I rented a 6 and an 8, and both ended up fitting. I chose the 6, which was a bit snug but nice for date night. The dress looks classy and fits well. The color is a much more vivid purple in person, but I loved it! I wish I could find it to buy. I also got the Badgley Mischka Falling Leaf earrings as a stylist surprise, and they were big, blingy, and fun.

Perfect dress for a wedding or night out!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress to two weddings in one day! It was very comfortable and easy to move around in. The fabric has a great stretch to it, and it's very flattering. I would highly recommend for anyone looking to pull off a classy yet trendy look. I ordered the 6 and the 8, but the small seam tacking the black lining around the inside of the neckline was broken on the size 6. When I tried it on, it didn't seem to look quite right as you could see the black lining showing. So I went with the 8 instead. It was a little looser in the hip and thigh area, but still looked great! The dress is fitted enough, I would recommend going one size up for the back-up in case you aren't as comfortable with such a form fitting dress. The fabric is nice and thick, so it should be flattering on all body types!

Overall fit: True to Size

I rented this as my backup dress for a wedding. I didn't end up wearing it because it was pretty short on me so I didn't think it was appropriate. This would be a great dress for a night out though. Also - the color is more purple than in the picture, which actually made me like it even more.

When I read the other reviews on this dress, I decided to rent up a size. This dress was a bit big actually and I should have stayed true to my regular RTR size of 2 and 4. Otherwise, it was perfect and loved the color.

I never received the dress. There was an issue with the size I ordered. I still gave this review 5 stars because I stylist promptly contacted me about the issue and assisted me with finding a more than suitable alternative (honoring the same rental price although the replacement was priced higher) in a crunch. Thanks, RTR!

Not forgiving in the midsection. Not worn.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
I ordered this as a backup dress and I'm so happy the first dress fit because this did NOT work for me in a size 4. I thought that the midsection would be somewhat forgiving given the way it was made (seemingly criss-cross fabric), but it was not. My little tummy bulge stuck out. This may have possibly worked for me in a 6, but I'll never know- I doubt I'll ever try to order the dress again. I would put it on and take and post a picture, but I don't want to- it really looked THAT bad on me!

I rented this dress for a bridal shower. I ordered two sizes because depending on the dress, the sizes I wear vary. I went with the 6 because it fit more snug and looked better, the 8 was too loose. The dress was very comfortable and a great color. I wore a black necklace with it because I felt it was too plain without one.

I loved this dress! It was great for a casual night out in Vegas - the color is gorgeous and there was a fun little detail with a tiny cutout on the shoulders and underneath the top of the dress at the collar is a darker purple leather layer that when it peaks out is cute! Super comfy and stretchy and true to size.

Everything about this dress was great, it just wasn't my style. It has a pretty high neckline for my taste, so it was weird for me to get used to, but I'm sure there are people that don't necessarily like low necklines all the time. The color is great and I felt I looked good while wearing it to a beautiful steak dinner.
