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.

Very good for conservative fundraiser.
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
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
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: 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.

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!

Great color, classy and I could dance in it!
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
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!

Pretty color, nice style, but ho-hum fit
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
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.

Gorgeous color, unique detail
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
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.

Very classy, great color, very professional-looking dress
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
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 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!
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
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.

Now to start off, Spanx are a must in this dress! The neckline is quite flattering and works very well with a shorter or choker style necklace. The color was a perfect holiday party contrast to the typical little black dress.

This is a beautiful color, but it is not very forgiving. It will show your bumps and curves whether or not you wear spanks. The 14 and 12 fit similarly. I was just hoping the 14 would be more forgiving. It wasn't. I still got lots of compliments. It is very flattering in the chest and arms.

The dress was appropriate and comfortable :)
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
Fit a little large, which worked fine, since I got a size down for my back-up dress. The dress hem hit at the knee, looked alright with pumps, would have looked frumpy with flats. I wore it with Spanx, since I was afraid the fabric would have shown some bumps and undie-lines, AND I was bloated :( . Top of the dress was a good fit on me. I was disappointed to find that the dress was different than pictured. 1. The back "collar" of the dress was not a "V-shape" as is pictured on the website, but more similar to the back of a typical shift dress or even t-shirt really. 2. The draped ruffle was the detail that sealed the deal for me when looking at the dresses on this site, but much to my dismay, the dress I received did not have the ruffle! That was a significant disappointment for me. Overall, I still liked the dress I received, but it didn't have any of the "wow" factor (the ruffle) that I wanted to have since I was renting a dress. If I wanted a so-so basic shift dress, I would have looked elsewhere and just bought a less expensive dress that I could also continue to wear. All in all, my experience was "eh." If I were at RTR, I'd ensure the item pictured is actually the same as the item sent out to customers.

Loved the color and look of the dress but I couldn't zip it up all the way. Was unable to wear it and scrambled for an alternate option. I am a true size 14 and this is the first time one of the outfilts from Rent the Runway did not fit at all....

I rented this for a wedding of a professional acquaintance, and it was perfect. Very classy and conservative. The back was not as shown, however; it was a traditional zip-up sheath style in back, but it still looked very nice. I have reddish hair and pale skin, and the color was very flattering. I usually wear an 8, but the dress gaped around the arms and in the bust. The six fit me perfectly.

Beautiful dress, but slightly different than pictured.
Size worn: 14
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This definitely runs true to size, maybe a bit on the larger size of true, but still true. I'm right between a 12 and a 14 and I sized up in order to accommodate my bust. One note - the dresses that I received are different than the one pictured. The one on the site has a V back with more draping hanging straight down. The one that I received had the typical high back of a sheath dress and does not have any additional draping. That was a little bit disappointing, but certainly does not change how well made and gorgeous the dress is. Great emerald green color, too.
