Beautiful craftsmanship

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size

The fabric of this dress is luxurious. It was a teeny bit tight across my chest which made the pleating pucker just a bit...not the dress, just the way I'm built. I loved the color and the fit and was dressed perfectly for a New Years wedding. Love having a quality dress just for the date!

beautiful color!

I thought the dress was beautiful and very sophisticated. The only problem was that it was very poorly pressed at the dry cleaner so the chest area and the skirt were puckered which did not present very well.

LOVE how quickly the dress arrived in the mail - I ordered it just a few days before the event and it worked out perfectly. Friends loved the dress.

Wore this dress for a law school formal and was surprised how well it fit my hourglass frame. The 5% elastane really makes the dress fit without being inappropriately tight anywhere. I'm 5'6 and the length was just right. Very comfortable, very classy. Only thing to look out for is the dress wrinkles really easily, really quickly.

The material of this dress makes it look really classy and expensive. The color of the dress was very beautiful and eye catching which also enhanced my light skin tone. I was really pleasantly surprised to see myself a focal point in the group picture, standing out and elegant.

Good dress

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Great color, fit well. My chest is larger than the rest of me, so I had to wear a minimizer (and the larger sized dress), but I think if you have a more balanced body shape you could wear your normal size. Overall a really comfortable dress - color on the site is true to life, dress is fairly lightweight (Summer wedding and I was fine). Recommended!

Perfect Fit!!!

This was my first time renting from RentTheRunway and it was a spontaneous decision!! I was nervous this dress wouldn't fit and was unable to order a larger size as it was unavailable. But was pleasantly surprised how well this dress fit! Plus I received lots of compliments at the wedding as everyone loved it.

A True Jewel

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Cut: Slim fit, not a lot of forgiveness in fabric so if you have a bottom that sticks out (or a top half that sticks out), then the dress may hug these parts more than glide over them. Color: True color is really dark pink, maybe some would say magenta. It's quite lovely. Comfort: Soft, silky lining makes this a very comfortable dress.

I had no time to go shop for a dress or the budget to buy a great dress. RTR to the rescue!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I got the 8 and the 10. The 8 fit really well. The color was beautiful. The fabric nice and light. This isn't a great picture, but I got lots of compliments. The lining poked out a bit when I sat down, but it does on most dresses, so I just tucked it away. Also, the dress made me look very curvy without putting ALL my cleavage on display.

Gorgeous Color, Flattering Dress

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The 10 wasn't available, so I tried the 12 instead. It was a little large around the shoulders/upper chest, but other than that, it turned out to be a really comfortable dress. The color was a beautiful jewel-tone, and the emerald-color earrings I wore complemented it very well. The twist detail at the waist was very flattering, and the length made it look professional. Only other thing to mention: this dress does wrinkle easily. Definitely would recommend renting this dress!

Beautiful color

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size

The dress fit well from the waist down. Through the bust however, it was snug. There are vertical pleats down the middle of each breast and while I technically fit into the dress, the pleats were pulled tight giving the dress an odd appearance. The dress wrinkles terribly. I wore this to the opera and by the end of the second act, it looked like I had slept in it.

Great dress!

I was about 3 months pregnant when I wore this dress so I went up to the next size (8). It fit great and was tight enough to show off my small bump, while not being too tight anywhere else.

Super cute dress

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Not quite as vivid as in the photo, but still bright and sparkly. I wore to an August wedding in Napa, and it was just right. It fit true to size, but was loose enough that you could wear a normal bra and not need to deal with spanx or similar. Thin fabric, I think the dress would work for spring-fall, but not during the winter.

Just "so-so"

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this as a back up option for a wedding and it didn't work. It was tight in the bust, tight in the hips, and VERY loose in the middle. In short, I don't feel this dress was cut for "real women" - with curves! It might work if you're long and lean and thin but if you have ANY kind of curve, it just won't work well ...
