Loved!
This was the first time I ordered from RTR and I was really excited to get the dresses. I got the shipment on time so that was great. I ordered a 0 and a 2 but got 2 0's. I usually wear a 4 for DVF so I will say it runs a little large. Luckily, I was able to fit the 0 and since I am not heavy on top, the fit was actually quite great! It's a beautiful, fun dress! Got lots of compliments all night. Thank you RTR!

Loved this dress - not crazy short, but the bust was a tad large on me
This dress fit beautifully and I received loads of compliments. I wore a two, which i usually alternate between that or a four in RTR gowns. Bust was a tad large on me but I'm freakishly under-endowed in that area. I'm about 5'3, 120, 32b (ish) chest.

I loved this dress!
This is a great party dress. The volume of the skirt was fantastic and I loved the texture of the fabric. I found the length to be perfect. It ran a little big, however and I needed to use fashion tape to make sure the top didn't slip on me. The 0 probably would have fit better, but wasn't available. I added my own belt to tighten the fit around my waist a little and I was happy with the fit for a night. Overall, the dress was fun enough to make these modifications worth it.

I wore this dress for my best friend's rehearsal dinner
The dress ran a little bit big, but still looked great. I got compliments on my look all night long! The best part about this dress is the short but full skirt - SO much fun to dance in!

Amazing and super cute dress! Perfect for any formal affair!
I wore this dress to a black tie affair that many celebrities and retail exectives attended.Knowing that high profile guest would be at this gala, it was important that I find the perfect dress. When ordered this dress I was nervous about how it would fit, but it ended up being true to size. My only issue was that the chest kept sliding down, but the free Hollywood tape RTR provided fixed the problem! I definitely recommed this dress!

I love the belt you added to it! Where did you get it or do you have a label with it?

I loved how fun and flirty this dress was...it was so much more than a little black dress!
Diane Von Furstenberg's dresses tend to run on the smaller side, especially if you have a larger bust like myself. I had to size up for this dress. I normally wear an 8/10 in dresses and the size 10 would not zip up the bust. Other than that, the dress was great and I got a lot of compliments on it! I'd definitely rent it again!

Unique twist on the traditional LBD
DVF never disappoints! I rented this dress for a romantic birthday dinner with my husband and it was so fun and flirty! The only thing that I could say about this dress is that the bust could have used a little more support. I had to use double sided tape to keep from having a wardrobe malfunction - other than that it was great! The waist fits true to size, so the size 0 fit my waist great, but the 2 was better on the bust so I went with that size. Definitely recommended, but get yourself some double sided tape and you will be good to go!

I had to send this one back
The bodice on this dress was MUCH shorter than I was expecting. I have a long torso, in order to have the waist of the dress be at my waist (not look like an empire cut) the top was low enough that I wasn't comfortable wearing it to a wedding. The dress was beautiful, but it did not work with my body type.

Very cute dress! I didn't get to wear it, but I'll be renting it again.
Very cute dress! Great fit for pear-shaped girls, as it's super flattering for the bust, shoulders, and arms, while concealing full hips & bum. I am 5'10", so I was concerned about the length being too short. It was about as short as I'll go, but it was definitely wearable. I didn't get to wear it due to unforeseen events, but I'll be renting it again.

Cute dress, but runs very large
I wanted to wear this dress for my bachelorette party, but ended up wearing my backup dress. I usually wear a 6, but the 6 on me was definitely falling down. It's a shame, because it's a really cute dress. Definitely go down a size or two when renting

Adorable but short!
This was a beautiful dress. When I ordered it I ordered a size 10 and the backup sign of a 12. The 10 was out of stock and RTR was very nice enough to send me another dress in its place. The problem with this dress was that the 12 was too big in the chest area and overall way too short. I am 5'10. If I had worn this, I would have been worried about it all night.

RTR overnighted me this replacement dress when my original was delayed
Pretty tight right below the bust area, but I like a snug fit. I was pleasantly surprised with this dress when I had to choose it last minute after the dress I ordered was delayed. It is fun and young, perfect for going out for my birthday! Makes for a good twirl :)

Rent This Dress With Caution
The dress itself was lovely, but it simply did not fit. I have a 34D chest so I was cautious with reading others' reviews before deciding to go with this particular strapless. I normally wear a 4 but rented a 6 and 8, assuming I would need a little more fabric up top. After a new strapless bra and countless pieces of fashion tap, the 6 still exposed waaaayyy too much boob! As in, if it was literally 1/8th of an inch lower, it would have been a disaster. The 8 was WAY too big on my back/ribs so I had to stick with the 6. Also, tugging the top up all night shifted the hem line up too high and thus added a solid 10lbs on to my waistline. If you have a large chest, I'd definitely recommend a different style- not worth feeling self conscious on a special occasion!

I felt gorgeous and who doesn't in a perfect little black dress?!
This dress was beautiful, cute, and classy for the prom I was attending. I thought the size ran a little big as the top was loose and tended to fall a lot so I would suggest getting a size smaller than what you think you may need IN ADDITION to the size you believe you are. I would also suggest dressing this outfit up with some accessories as the dress is simple! Great dress I would suggest for even a formal event despite the length as well as a more casual occasion.

fun and flirty
I rented this dress for NYE. It's fun, flirty and feminine. Received so many compliments. I have a small bust (34B) and I just fit into the top, the cups are small, but the a-line gives your body a nice shape. It's also a bit on the short side but I think that adds to the flirty quality of the dress.

flouncy skirt + major boobage
loved this dress - it was flouncy, fun to dance in and the overall fit was flattering. if you have big boobs (i'm a 34D), this gives you some major cleave! wowza, but that could be a good thing, right? great for you shotr ladies too - no hemming needed, i'm 5'1 and it was a good length for me.

RTR had great customer service that answered any question I had!
I rented this dress for a formal date party and loved it!! It was super flattering! My only complaint - the size 2 was stretched out in the bust. My best advice for small busted girls like me would be to use a stick-on bra (because the dress rides low and you would be able see the strap across the back) and then pin/tape the dress to the bra.

It gave me the opportunity to wear a gorgeous dress and bag for a fraction of the cost.
I felt super sexy in this dress, the layers don't read on camera but are delightful in person. My husband was beyond proud to have me on his arm. I have noticed I wear a size up in designer dresses, the curse of "vanity sizing." The size 2 was an exact fit, but the 4 allowed extra room for a strapless bra. I would not recommend this dress for anyone over a "B" cup. I wore a petty coat under the dress to amp up the volume, I would highly recommend the same for a cute party look.

Best Dressed Girl at Formal
This dress was a huge hit at my boyfriend's fraternity formal. I am usually a 6, but I had to go with the 8 because the bust was so tiny. It still was a little tight, but the compliments were worth it!

Bust was wayy to small
I ordered a 4 and 6 for this dress, and the 6 fit better. All night I was pulling up my dress because the bust kept falling down. I do not have a very big bust so I was surprise it didn't fit.

trying to decide which shoes to wear with it! so in love with this dress! i never wanted to take it off! <3
this was my first time using Rent the Runway and i could not be happier! i will never buy a formal dress ever again!!!! This dress is gorgeous!! It fit great! The only little complaint i have is that some of the ruffles were folded the wrong way and i was too terrified to try to iron it, so i just left it. Otherwise, it was perfect! The skirt is a little longer in the back than the front so that was nice. The top fit however if you have a larger bust, we all know there is more of an issue with things staying in place, but none more than usual. Overall, i was so so happy with this dress and hated to have to return it!!

I LOVED THIS DRESS! Material is so soft and pretty, amazing detail too. Best time dancing in it!
The bust area is of course a little loose, but with the double sided tape it looks great. I could even fit a strapless bra underneath, so that made it even better! I'm a 34c, so not too big, but I didn't see too many problems with it. The pros most definitely outweigh the cons. The top of the dress sits pretty low on the chest, but not enough to make you look inappropriate. It bares the chest just enough to make you feel really confident and sexy! HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS DRESS!!

Fab dress!! Received compliments all night long, definitely made the event very memorable.
The dress was delivered in a timely fashion and Although I ordered the alternate size bigger because several reviews said it ran small it wasn't necessary. The fit was true to size and no garment tape was needed. I was able to wear a nice VS strapless bra and had no slipping or wardrobe mishaps. As I mentioned earlier I received compliments all night long but the kicker was when someone stopped me on the dance floor and said I had to tell you your dress is stunning and people have been admiring it all throughout the night. I was truly happy overall with my RTR experience and I will definitely utilize their site again. I highly recommend their services.

Great Dress!
I was definitely skeptical about renting a dress, but it worked out perfectly. I found a Diane Von Ferstenberg size chart online and measured myself just to make sure I was getting the right size. My measurements were for a size 8 and it fit perfectly. Based on the stylist tips on RTR I got a size 6 as a backup size, but it was too small, I couldn't even zip it up. The only thing is that it does run a teeny bit large in the bust, and the dress sits pretty low on your chest, so it when I first put it on it felt like it was going to fall off. I fixed this by wearing a strapless bra and using fashion tape to tape the dress on securely. It stayed on with no problems and I got tons of compliments all night!

This dress looks amazing on!
The fit of this dress is perfect, and very flattering. The only con is the top of the dress is really thin fabric, so you have to use fashion tape to keep it in place. Other than that, this dress was a big hit!

The dress fit very well and was still in great condition. I wore a pair of fun and crazy heels to make the dress less formal and more appropriate for my event.
