Obsessed with this dress. I wore it to my friend's 30th birthday party. The shape is extremely flattering and the fabric has just the right amount of stretch and weight - it would look great on anyone. I'm 5'8" and it was the perfect length, hit just above the knee which I liked because it's so fitted. I paired with the Jude Snake clutch by House of Harlow. Amazing look, I can't wait to wear it again!

Fun NYE dress!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I really wish I had a full picture of this dress but I only ended up with three photos that people took from their phones. In a dark room. Oh well. Loved the dress. I can often times size down to a 4 but there would never have been any chance of that happening with this dress (which interestingly enough I did the last time I rented from this designer). My husband said he thought it looked like it was made for me. Super sweet. But it did fit just perfectly. Wouldn't have looked right any bigger. If you're considering renting this, I believe opting on the side of next size up for the second dress, to be safe.

This dress was an absolute stunner, the pictures do not do it justice. The detail in the neckline is so unique and the fabric is fitting yet stretchy and moveable. The 4 fit me like a glove (thanx Spanx!). I paired it with the 'Gold Dress Me Up' Bracelet, the AV Max 'Pure Isis' Earrings and my own bone colored BCBG pointy closed toes heels. The dress also looked brand new, I'm thinking I may have been one of the first lucky ladies to get to wear it.

Size was right on. My backup size was an 8 based on reviews that I read that the dress ran small. The 8 was too big. This dress feels good on. Very comfortable and fitted. Material perfect, not too thin for a tight fitted dress.

I stood out in this dress at my friend's annual Valentine's day party. Stunner!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
This dress runs very small. I originally ordered this dress for my birthday in January but ended up being too sick to go out. I had a size 0 & 2 sent and both were too small. I ended up ordering the 4 for my second attempt. This dress has no stretch and thick seams along the sides - almost as if someone took it in. The cut is great for those of us who have toned arms. The decorative neckline is gorgeous. All my girlfriends loved this dress.. And all my boyfriend could say was "wow!"

Runs small and tight and had to go with my back up size. Shapeware was a necessity given the tightness of the sheath. Absolutely loved the color and neckline. I received so many compliments all night long!

This was actually my first time renting from Rent the Runway & this was also my 2nd choice dress. This dress really works on emphasizing the best parts of your body! It really did give me a petite waist and just that va va voom hourglass figure. The dress is not lined but it has a really nice thick material that hides what one might consider "imperfections." I suggest wearing this dress with some ivory colored D'orsay styled heels for a dramatic affect and perhaps a ring or some earings since its kind of hard to match up any other jewelry to the embellished neckline. I wore this dress for a pageant interview and I received compliments from both my fellow competitors and the judges, I was definitely one of the best dressed there, haha! I would certainly recommend this dress for any occasion, & I will most definitely be renting dresses from here again ;)

I rented this dress for my girlfriend's engagement party. It was very comfortable while still being form fitting. I have a larger bust and a small waist, so it is not always easy to find dresses that accommodate both.... this one fit like a glove! I would have been comfortable wearing this to a more formal event, like a wedding, as well. This was my first RTR experience, and I will definitely rent again!

This dress is stunning. I did not originally order it, but after my original dress was damaged, this was sent and I have to say I LOVED IT! The cut in the arms was beautiful and makes toned arms look even better, the color (like merlot) was complimentary and the length on me, was sofisticated. Although I felt like when I walked it wrinkled up a bit at the hips and was pulling down to look sleek in pictures, it overall fit well! and look stunning!

I wore this dress to a benefit dinner attended by very fashionable, artistic people.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress fit like a glove and was super flattering and slimming for my hourglass, athletic figure. It is an easy dress to wear and hugs / slims you in all the right places. The color is very sophisticated and elegant for evening. The detail in the sewn-in choker detail looks rich and cool. This halter cut is especially flattering. While body-conscious, the dress length on my height (5'4") hit right above the knee, so it looked elegant and sexy at the same time. I received many compliments, and I am searching for a way to buy this dress, as I could easily see myself going back to it again and again. Perfection!

Amazing fabric and fit

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size

The color was nice but maybe a little too burgundy/deep wine color. I generally prefer more bright, happy, jewel tones. The necklace collar was unique but very high and maybe a little snug, I would have preferred to have the option to not have the embellishment and have the dress' quality tailoring and material speak for itself.

Gorgeous dress, but maybe not quite for me.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This really is a gorgeous dress, the color is rich and the beading adds a sophisticated touch. I normally run a size 0, but thank goodness I ordered the 2 as a back-up, I couldn't even get the 0 past my hips. The 2 even felt a bit restrictive, but everyone said it looked good. My boyfriend LOVED it! The dress definitely shows off your curves. I wasn't blown away by this dress for a few reasons: 1. it's made for someone with more bust and less hips, not for my pear shape, 2. The neck piece was really tight. In fact, I didn't even fasten it and just wore my hair down to cover it, 3. It wasn't the most comfortable dress. I felt like I had to sit up very straight all night...not a lot of give!

Hugs all your curves in the right way. Sexy and sophisticated at the same time. Runs small...I wore a size larger than usual. The high neck isn't the most comfortable, but I thought it was worth it for the chic look.

I loved this dress. The color is perfect, a deep wine. The dress is true to size but it is very fitted, so be wary. The dress was a great length for me, even being so short-it was only an inch or so past my knees, which made it great for the formal event I was attending. I received so many compliments from people throughout the night!

I loved this dress. I ordered the 2 and 4 as a back up. It is a good thing I had the 4 available because I could barely breathe in the 2. This dress fits snug, and there is very little give in the fabric. That being said, I received many compliments and enjoyed wearing the 4. The neck even fits snug. The beading at the neckline was a lovely addition.

Absolutely bombshell dress.

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I felt so glamorous wearing this to my boyfriend's company holiday party and got many compliments. Fit: This bodycon dress fits skin tight but the material was thick enough to hold me in, and not squeeze me into a sausage. For once in my life, I looked in the mirror and thought, wow! look at that hourglass! I'm very petite (5' 105lbs) and many size 0 dresses can be loose on me, but this dress fit like a charm. Pros: Absolute stunner of a dress. I love the combination of sexy and conservative (body con and arms exposed, yet no cleavage and the dress fell to my knees). The material was thick enough to remove any lumps (ie pantyhose, bra, etc) and kept me warm enough for December. Also, I don't have much jewelry so the jeweled collar was perfect for me. Cons: The zipper is very hard to pull in the beginning - even my boyfriend struggled to get it started. I'm also vertically impaired, and the dress was about 1-2" longer than I would have wanted (fell below my knees unless I pulled it up).

Dress fit great! Reviews were accurate in that it ran small. I usually wear a 0 or 2, so I was glad I ordered a backup size in a 4 after reading the reviews. Dress was form fitting, but was comfortable to move in all night. Color was a nice departure from the typical LBD. As usual the RTR process was so easy!

What could have been a cute dress was ruined by its high neck line. Very unflattering. Also I wasn't thrilled with the beading. It was another dress that had been picked out by a stylist for me that was another fail.

If you want to dance and move around freely in a dress, this dress is not for you because it does have a tight fit. I didn't mind the fit because the dress gave me a very nice hourglass shape which was the look I was going for. The berry wine color of the dress looked amazing against my fair skin tone. I got compliments on the dress the whole night. I will definitely rent this dress again!
