lovely dress, but not intended for the pear-shaped crowd. :(
No give in fabric. Yes, sizing up allows a less sausage fit across hips and bottom, but the larger size adds an unflattering amount of length to the skirt.

Fantastic color and coverage for a work event, but with a nice detail around the neck for some oomph
I initially thought to wear the 10 as it fit properly in the bust, but it was such a sack around the waist that I would have had to use a belt or something to give it shape. The 8 was much better everywhere other than in the bust where it was quite tight. If you've got a larger bust, you'll either need to put up with the flattened uni-boob look or you should look at other options.

Epitome of elegance
I wore this to a wedding I was officiating. I wanted something understated to not detract from pictures of the bride, yet something that I could look good in as well. This dress was exactly that. The neckline accents were casual and fit the bill. The dress ran large -- I usually wear a 6, and the 4 was ok, but the 2 was more fitted and flattering -- but otherwise hung perfectly.

BEAUTIFUL dress, but even more impressive was RTR's customer service, which saved me from disaster.
First, the notes say that the dress runs small and advise you to order a size down. I normally get a 4 and a 6 from RTR, so I got a 2 and a 4. I could barely breathe in the 4, and didn't have time to return and get a new size. I'm thin and athletic, but on the curvy side, so perhaps it would have fit someone with smaller hips and bust who wears the same size. RTR overnighted a 6 and an 8 for $13, and when we found that UPS didn't deliver to the remote wedding location, sent it to the bridal shop in the nearby town. They were fast, efficient, and completely professional. Second, the dress was GORGEOUS! The color was amazing, and the way it fit was very flattering. I was getting compliments all night. It was comfortable, I could move easily, and could wear a normal bra under it. So I highly recommend this dress for any occasion, but if you are larger than a C, go a size UP, not down as the notes recommend.

Gorgeous color, a little snug.
This dress is beautiful. I loved the fabric and the color, unfortunately it runs a little small so I couldn't wear it to my event. Thankfully I had a RTR backup! I would definitely rent this one again, once I'm sure I can fit it ;)

Amazing color, comfortable fit!
This dress was perfect for my event at the opera! This was sent to me as my backup dress. At first, I wasn't particularly enthusiastic about the dress from the photo, but it is STUNNING in person. I loved the color and got compliments all night. I am also very tall and it was perfect for a semi-work event -- it hit just above the knee. I definitely recommend!

It was a great and flattering fit.
The dress fit very elegantly! The only problem is that it had a small opening on a side seem (that made me uncomfortable). The color was truly amazing!

I had to wear the size 8 for my hips, but the top was fine in the 6&8. Was very impressed for my first experience.

Too long and too big
I got this dress as a back up, and wore my first choice dress. I've wanted to try this dress, but couldn't have worn it if I wanted to. It was way to long on my 5'-4" tall body. It's true that the fit notes say it's knee length on someone 5'-7" and it was at least 3" below my knees. Additionally it was big at the waist and hips.

Good compliments from co-workers!
Wore this for my company's holiday party 2013!! I received compliments that it looked good! It's defiantly clingy over the tummy so, I recommend wearing spanx underneath!!! Not much stretch to the fabric but it was a pretty comfortable dress!

I wore it to my daughter's graduation. The beautiful color helped her to spot me in the crowd easily
The dress runs true to size but it is not forgiving, so Spanx would probably be a good idea. I didn't wear do that as it was 90 degrees outside, which is something to consider. There were lots of compliments for the dress. I'm 6'1" so it can be hard to find dresses. The experience of using Rent the Runway was completely positive. Everything arrived earlier than planned.

Not fitted at all
I ordered this dress for spring wedding and it arrived earlier than expected, which was good, because when I tried it on, it did not fit at all like the picture. The picture shows a very fitted waist, which is, in my opinion, what makes this dress look so pretty. In reality, the dress is very sack-like and just hangs in a straight line. It's a beautiful dress, but for a one colored dress with no real features, the fitted element was a must for me. I spoke with an RTR stylist the next day to find a different gown for the even on such short notice and she did a wonderful job recommending options and finding me another dress.

Seeing those we love so happy. You want to shine to honor the love around you.
This dress was very flattering and looked good all night long (no wrinkling or other problems). It was easy to dance in and moved with my body so it didn't create any awkwardness on the dance floor. The color is beautiful and it was elegant and understated and felt appropriate for the wedding. I was very happy to find something here that worked for an old broad like me. I believe that I saved money by renting rather than buying something I would likely wear only once, though this dress was so nice that I hated to return it. Thank you Rent the Runway for including dresses for those of us no longer in our leggy 20's!

Quick substitute to the rescue!
I have rented almost 10 times from RTR for different events but this time was the real testament. The original dress that I ordered was damaged beyond repair and I got an email from RTR about the need to switch. I was flying out to the wedding and planned on having the dresses delivered to the hotel. I only had two hours to choose another dress before the shipment went out from RTR. Our work computer has a block on it and wouldn't allow me to view pictures of the dresses which is how I ALWAYS decide. Needless to say, the RTR stylist chose two dresses and I chose two dresses and they mailed them all to my hotel the next day. All of the dresses arrived and this is the one that I chose which fit perfectly. I read the reviews and figured that the 4 would fit best which it did as the dress does run big. I am a little under 5'4" and wore 3+ inch heels and I thought the length was perfect for the look. It shows your curves in a silhouette fashion which is flattering without a lot of leg. Spanx still needed :-) if you usually wear them.

Very nice material and color....not a good fit for my body type
All in all I was able to make the dress work. I rent from RTR often and always either where a 4 or 6....usually both fit actually. In this case both were very big. The dress would likely for someone better that has a more curvey body. It seemed to fit me like a big box. Once I added the black belt it worked just fine because it provided some shape. Even tho the fit was not great I still received many compliments on the dress. The color was great and the length hit me right below the knee, which is what I was looking for for my event.

Such a classy dress!
I wore this for my bridal shower--I loved the color and upper detail. The dress wasn't particularly form-fitting from the torso down, and I would have preferred to have more of a shape. However, it was still a fantastic rental.

The dress ran a little long for a shorty like me, but in heels it was alright. The dress was beautiful and elegant for a spring wedding. I received many compliments, especially on the color.

Pretty color, nice style, but ho-hum fit
This dress runs large. I usually wear a 4 or 6, and I got the 4 and it was still big. I'm 5'5" and it hit mid-knee, which is a conservative length. The sleeves also looked more like cap sleeves than on the model, and the top didn't lay smoothly. It's a beautiful color, the fabric was luxurious, and I liked the style, it just didn't fit right.

Very good for conservative fundraiser.
I got this dress in sizes 4 and 6, and ended up wearing the larger size because the event was very conservative. However, the dress does run true to size - the size 4 fit nicely and hugged in the right places. You can wear with a regular bra.

Gorgeous green for the office party
I was looking for a festive dress that offered simple elegance. ( I also wasn't sure what the dress code for the office christmas party would be when the invite said "wear your festive duds.") The dress fit perfectly and was totally fun to wear. Big plus for not having to purchase a special bra or specific shoes (I just wore nude.) Also, a great match for a redhead. The fabric was more forgiving than I would have thought, no need for shapewear. The dress also performed well on the dance floor! I can't wait to use RTR for my next fancy event.

Loved the neckline detail!
This was a great dress for a full-busted gal like me. I tried on the 12 and the 14; both fit well, but since I had a long drive to the wedding, and a long drive home, I opted to be a tad more comfy in the dress. Received many compliments! Loved the ease of returning the dress as well!

Gorgeous color, unique detail
The fabric is a beautiful crepe (but I did have to get it pressed before wearing). The color was a lovely emerald. I got many compliments on the color against my fair skin/dark hair. Based on other reviews, I got the 2 and the 4 to try. The 2 would have been knock-out perfect on me, but was a touch too tight across the bust. I wore the dress to a work function, so wanted to err on the conservative side. Problem was the 4 looked like a burlap sack on me and came down below my knees. It definitely runs big. I ended up belting it with a caramel colored belt and matching shoes and it really worked out nicely. Pearl stud earrings, very simple. I love the way the dress looks on the model, but you'd need some serious tailoring to create that waist and flared skirt look. If I bought the dress, that's just what I'd do.

Great color, classy and I could dance in it!
The fit was perfect. I'm a 10/12 and the 10 was nice and snug, but still classy. There was enough give to get down on the dance floor and everyone complimented me on the color. My only regret is that I did not wear spanx, so I was sucking it in. But it was way too hot for extra layers! This photo isn't the best, but I figured I would add it. It's not full length, but I am 6'0 and it was perfect for a wedding! As usual RTR gets it right!

This was my backup dress and I ended up not wearing it.
It's pretty, but loose in the waist (not as shaped as the picture). I'm usually a 6 or an 8, and the 6 was loose.

Very classy, great color, very professional-looking dress
This dress looked better than I expected, and I was really pleased with it. The color is fantastic, and I was complimented on that several times. I usually wear a size 6-8, but the size 6 looked a little too big & shapeless, so I tried the size 4 which fit really was very flattering around my waist & hips. My only complaint is that, since I have broad ribcage & shoulders and size 36C bust, the fit around my shoulders was fairly tight. This wasn't a dancing event, so I didn't have to worry about moving my upper body too much, but it might've been difficult were I at a wedding. Overall very lovely dress. It worked great at a professional event.

The flutter across the top did not lay properly. Beautiful drape to the dress otherwise
The color wasn't as emerald as I had hoped; it was as much a forest green on the spectrum as an emerald. It didn't have the WOW color with my Spring coloring that I was hoping for, but it was a beautiful color. True to Tahari, the drape of the fabric was beautiful and professional.

Absolutely beautiful dress and unusual collar!
The material, cut, color and detail on the neck were just fabulous! I wore it to a rehearsal dinner and I had so many compliments on how beautiful I looked. A dress can be beautiful but it's important for it to compliment the wearer and not over power her. Totally recommend this dress. Only tiny compliant I have is when the time starts to return a dress or item: I usually get the dress I've ordered very late in the day yet I'm charged for the entire day. Normally no problem but If the return day is a Sunday, here in OK, you can't put a package in the Post Office bin until Mon. morning, then it doesn't get picked up until after 5 that day.
