Great dress for my work event!
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
As many others said, this dress runs small! I am normally a 6, but wore the 8, but probably could have done the 10! It fit alright, but was a bit snug and would ride up a little. With that said, as the night progressed it seemed to "relax" just enough! I loved the color contrast and the detailing of the top! Great dress!!

Beautiful dress!! Got so many compliments on it!
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
It was gorgeous! Definitely runs a little small, I usually wear an 8, but had to wear a 10. Everyone commented on how great the dress was, I felt beautiful in it! It was a little short, I don't know if I would have worn it without my black tights, but with them, it worked!

worn to an outdoors hindi wedding ceremony, in about 98+ degree weather. thank goodness this dress was comfortable to wear!
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I'm a curvy 10, sometimes need to size up to a 12...this dress fit like a glove! As mentioned before, the top is a very off white, but still very beautiful. It was a bit shorter than I expected, but that may have to do with my bigger hips/bottom. Still wasn't an issue, it looked wonderful and everyone loved it!

The most unbelievable thing about this experience is that literally every person I spoke to complimented me in the dress. They loved both the dress and how I looked in it and there's nothing more flattering than having a night full of fielding compliments
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This fit absolutely perfectly. It definitely runs true to size. It's incredibly flattering since it hides your stomach, it'll make your chest look bigger if you're small chested but it won't make you look tacky if you have a chest. The material was a little thicker than I expected, but there's not wrong with that. Just be aware it's not a thin dress. Get help with the zipper, since it's hard to pull up at the section where the fabric changes colors. I went to a rehearsal dinner in this dress and the compliments were from young and old men and women. Everyone wanted it and thought it looked great.

RTR was very easy to use, and the variety was great. It was wonderful being able to wear a designer dress within my budget.

I rented this dress for my wedding rehearsal dinner, and it was very flattering, and fit well, although I had to wear a size larger. It was comfortable and a good length, I would recommend it for a party, wedding, or other event.

The look on my bf's face when he saw me. :)
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Amazing dress! Gorgeous on, and the fit was perfect. The top was more off-tan than white (I was expecting it to be between white-eggshell), but I loved it. It was perfect semi-formal dress, just as the name suggested. A "taste of elegance". Con: I kept having to pull it down, but I'm a little hippy.

I can't count on my hands how many people commented on how skinny I looked- which for a bride 2 months before her wedding is the best compliment ever! I also got a free lipstick with the order, and the color looks amazing on me too!
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The fit was true to size- a little snug but it definitely sucks you in and creates a tiny waist (especially if you are not curvy like me!). You don't need to wear spankx or any other slimming device with this dress; the material is thick enough and tight enough to act as one for you. I wore this to my bridal shower and got a ton of compliments! Everyone wanted to know where I got it from, and I definitely talked up Rent the Runway! I put my hair up so that it didn't distract from the amazing neckline of the dress too. I also wore it at night to my bachelorette party at a bar at night- it is a very fun and flattering dress! Would definitely recommend to others!

This dress was too tight and was too conservative looking!
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I thought this dress would have more pizazz. It was too tight and short. I had the 6 and 8 I believe. The material was matte and it just didn't lay right. I returned it and RTR was amazing in quickly getting me an alternate dress.

OK dress with an odd fit but nothing special!
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
The dress didn't wow me at all. The top portion of it looked sort of worn and was sort of a "dirty off white" color. The dress runs small and it is short (I am 5'1 and I thought it was a bit short). I could maybe see someone who is really thin with a model-ish body pulling this off well but I just wasn't a huge fan of the dress overall.

Flattering dress - runs SMALL
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I ordered a size up for my back up, and it was still super snug. It's also very short! I'm 5'2" and have very short legs, and this was on the edge of appropriate. That said, the dress is gorgeous if it fits you right!

Overall fit: True to Size

I rented this for a function with my husband, it was my back up dress which I ended up wearing. On the hanger it did not impress me but once I put it on it was beautiful. It did not make my large bust seem over the top and offered great coverage, the bottom part hid my bloated pms tummy quite nicely. My only issue was the seam of the skirt was a little frayed.

This dress fit true to size, but the skirt was a bit short on me, I'm 5'7" though, so on the tall side. Still a cute dress!

Flatting and classy!
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Great dress! I think it was a little snug on the hips, so I went for the 10 instead of the 8, but this dress would probably look good on a lot of body types. I felt classically beautiful without being boring. The best part is that you can wear any conventional bra comfortably and there is no need for spanx. I'm on the taller side and it was slightly short, but I like short dresses so it worked. If you like your legs, you should be alright!

Beautiful dress. Best suited for smaller women. The larger sizes fit, but just look better on someone more petite.

The dress is gorgeous, but did not flatter my body type at all. The gathered material on top and bottom did well to hide bumps and such, but since it was not fitted it did not suit my shape on top. I think this dress would be stunning on someone with a straight body type (thin, fewer curves, small chest). Size-wise, both my sizes fit well, but the larger size had a little more length.

Highly recommend this dress! I felt comfortable and it fit perfectly. I wore it to a bridal shower and received many compliments. It is form fitting in the right places with some room in the mid-section so it is very flattering.

I loved this dress. I wore it to a family reunion, and I got tons of compliments on it. I ended up going with the backup size, so it would be a little longer (I needed a more conservative look), but my regular size fit well too. Definitely recommend.

I rented this dress for my wedding rehearsal dinner. Unfortunately, due to weather this dress was delivered after the event. So, I never did get to wear it. Although, it did look beautiful. Hopefully I'll have another event in the future when I can rent it again.

This dress is flattering, but if you've got hips/curves, it's going to be short! I rented this dress for a black and white themed party, so I was a little disappointed that the top is more of a cream/off-white color than it looks in the picture. Other than that, I got a ton of compliments on the dress, and the material has enough stretch/give to it to be really comfortable.

This dress fit me perfectly and sooo flattered my figure...helping to hide my tummy imperfections. You do need a steamer to open up the flowers that come flattened when mailed. Loves this dress!!
