Vibrant, figure flattering dress
Size worn: 8

I ordered a 6 and a 8 and ended up wearing the 8. In my opinion, the sizes run a bit small, but the 8 fit wonderfully and was super flattering. I got a ton of compliments and would definitely rent this dress again.

The bright color of this dress is perfect for a hot, summer look!
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
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.

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
Rented for: Date
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.

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!

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!

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

Fun party dress

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.

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 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.

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.

LOVE!!!! I felt so sexy and sophisticated at my bachelorette party.
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress is a stunner. It is short and has an amazing back, but isn't low cut, so you're not giving too much away. I wore spanx and I think that was needed to smooth everything out since the dress is tight, but oh so flattering! Also, any dress that can be worn with a regular bra is a huge perk. I would definitely rent again and would buy it if I ever won the lottery. A MUST-RENT in my opinion!

This is my all time favorite dress on RTR. I have now rented it four times (should probably look into buying it. The fabric is nice and heavy with a little bit of stretch. The color is a little darker than it appears in the picture but is still beautiful. Every time I wear it I feel beautiful and sophisticated.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size

This was an awesome dress! It fit perfectly and hugged all the right places. It is sexy and sophisticated as it is more covered in the front and a slight V in the back. Once in person, the purple is darker. I'd describe it as more of a grape. But I absolutely loved this dress!

This is an amazing body conscious dress that hugs curves. It looks great on and the color really stands out - it is definitely a dress to get noticed in. I got 2 sizes, and though both fit, the size up was slightly easier to dance in.

Great dress. Definitely recommend renting a size up; I am 4 in most department store gowns, and the six fit exactly. Got lots of compliments. Great gown to dress up or down. Many praised of the vintage vibe (if you fill out the dress a bit more than the model, it looks very much like a fitted dress ala "Mad Men"). Very comfy, too!,
