I rented both the 4 and the 6 and the 4 fit great. The dress wasn't too short or too long and I found the material to be very comfortable. I'd definitely recommend the dress to others.

Fun dress for my birthday!

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The dress fit great! The material is soft and comfortable but has some weight to it, which made it really flattering! I probably could have worn the 2 but the top was a little loose so I opted to size down. My hips are a little bigger but the material has plenty of stretch so it didn't look too tight. I didn't want to send it back!

Perfection!!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I usually am an 8 but I anticipated with the stretchy material I could go a size smaller so my second size was a 6. I ended up wearing the 6 because I wanted it to fit tighter. This is a showstopper. Just the right amount of skin with the sheer panels and sheer back and the length is perfect! It killed me to send it back. I felt so confident!

I wore this to a premiere party for my Uncle's new play "Craving for Travel" in NYC. The dress was a hit! I got so many compliments and the photographer loved taking my pictures. My grandma even loved the dress (She is hard to please). She called me over to all of her friends and employees just to show off the back of the dress to them. The fit was perfect even for a girl with a chest and hips. I ordered a size 6 and 8 and ended up wearing the 8 simply because my hips were snug in the 6. I loved this dress and would definitely recommend it if your looking for something to 'wow' people!

Effortless LBD; sophisticated yet the cut outs add an edgy touch

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I ordered both the 4 and the 6 but ended up wearing the 6 due to length. The arms were a little long but the dress was rather short. I loved how comfortable the fabric was and my favorite part was the back. A stunning dress that does not require much effort to look great, I would highly recommend it.

Just long enough to not have to worry about pulling the dress down throughout the night. Could've worn the 6, but liked part of the sleeve on the 8 better, otherwise there wasn't too much of a difference. The material was super comfortable, and it was a really fun dress to wear. Fits wonderfully, not too tight, but form fitting and very classy. This was my first rental - I'm so happy with the dress and the service!

Nothing is better than feeling COMFORTABLE and SEXY at the same time!

I LOVE THIS DRESS!! The long sleeves were great for a very cold New Years Eve in upstate New York! I wore the 6 since I knew I was going to be eating a 5 course pre-fixe dinner, but it fit just as perfect as I'm sure the 4 would have. The mesh inserts allow you to feel sexy without being too showy. The material of the dress was extremely comfortable and I didn't feel like I needed to constantly pull it down at night. I wore it out with a new faux fur vest and leggings, and paired it with an oxblood colored bag and earrings, and a gold bangle! Definitely need some sticky-boobs or petals for this dress with the exposed/mesh back. I honestly cannot wait to rent this again!

I am a 4/6 in dresses but ended up wearing the 6 in this one. It fit perfect and was just right for my best friend's bachelorette party! I loved it because I live in an area that isn't cold, but can get quite chilly at night. The long sleeves kept me warm at night. The back is to die for. I wish I would have taken a better picture. I highly recommend this dress!

The dress fit perfectly. The only thing I was surprised on was the material of the dress; it is more of a shiny, spandex material than I thought. Also, the dress was a tad big so it bunched up wear the zipper was on the side a tiny bit by the end of the night. It was a great dress, and all my friends complemented me on it!! I wore it for my bachelorette party in the city, and I am so happy I picked this one out!!

Loved this dress. Need to be in good shape--hugs every curve. The 4 fit but was a little stretched out in the hips--more wrinkling/ruching than I would've liked--and the 6 just laid very smoothly. Rides up a bit if you're not careful.

Great dress for a girls weekend in vegas! Very form fitting, so went with the 8 for a little bit more size. Sleeves were on the longer side, but that was OK. Just jazzed it up with a ring, fun shoes & simple earrings. Rode up a bit as I was walking around, but a few stealth tugs here and there, I was able to manage it. Loved it! Would definitely recommend this dress.

First of all, this dress was AWESOME! I wore a size 10, which fit true to size. The fit was super flattering; it made me look so curvy. I wore it without a bra, and it was fine. The mesh is darker than it looks in the RTR photos, so it was a little more subtle. Perfect length and sleeves... I wish I could have kept this dress! Unfortunately a snow storm delayed this dress, and I was unable to wear it on my Valentine's Day Date :( but Rent the Runway emailed me to apologize, and gave me a refund. Fantastic customer service!! Thanks RTR.

This dress is very form fitting, but has an extremely flattering cut. The fabric isn't too thin. The placement of the cut-outs on the chest and back is nicely done. All in all, a great night out dress if you're looking to show off your bod!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size

The dress looked super small on the hangar but fit like a glove. Yes, true to other reviews the sleeves are a little long and it does ride a bit, but nothing a sly pull can't handle. I just tucked the sleeve under and made sure to pull it down when necessary. Received tons of compliments and felt great in it. Definitely hugs all curves and doesn't necessarily hide flaws, but was able to wear a silicone backless bras. I felt amazing in it.

It does tend to ride up a tiny bit but I wore the smaller size that I ordered so I can't say that if I wore the size up it would've done that. I was worried about the no bra thing because of the open back but I honestly didn't even need pasties or anything the dress fit so perfectly I didn't need to wear anything for support.

This dress was beyond all my expectations! I wore this to my best friend (and soon to be sister-in-law's) bachelorette party and i generally stay away from dresses that i cannot wear a bra with because I am so busty! I can honestly say I didn't feel uncomfortable or self conscious at all while we danced through the night. It was forgiving, sexy and I got so many compliments on it. Wish I could keep it!

Sexy LBD

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
This dress was nice, and my boyfriend certainly loved it, but it wasn't my favorite rental. My main concern was that it kept riding up as I walked - I was continuously pulling the hemline down and adjusting, which is frustrating to have to do. Also, as others have mentioned, the sleeves are extremely long, but it was a quick fix to simply tuck them under. On a positive note, the material was great - it was very form-fitting and hid any areas that I tend to be self-conscious about. The mesh back and cutouts are very sexy without being over-the-top. I liked the dress but would not rent it again.

I absolutely loved this dress! This was my first time renting and it was an effortless process. I'm so happy with my experience. I wore this dress to my boyfriends class reunion and it was all anyone could talk about! I've never felt more stunning. The dress is so comfortable and the perfect length. I didn't have to tug or pull at it. I wore pasties as far as a bra goes(my first experience with those as well) and they worked great! I'm between a size 4 and 6,depending on the designer, I didn't even have to try on the six,the four fit amazing! I wore the dress with a pair of strappy Jessica Simpson heels and gold studded earrings. My boyfriend said I was the best arm candy he's ever had, he absolutely loved it! Thank you rent the runway for an unforgettable evening!

Loved this dress! Wore it for a formal event in the winter and felt sexy without giving everything away. The back cut out is a gorgeous detail. It was fitted enough in the front that I didn't actually need to wear a bra, but stick on cups would work very well for this. It is definitely short, even on someone with fairly short legs to begin with! All in all a great dress.

I ordered my normal size 2 and one size up to 4 just in case. The two fit perfectly on me and the only complaint I have is the sleeves seemed to be abnormally long ( a good 4 inches past my wrist ). The dress is a slinky material so it was easy to scrunch them up my arm. I received tons of compliments on my dress throughout the night and I would absolutely rent this again.

Dress was a little big, however the size 8 was not available so I made do with this one a little tighter fit would have been perfect. Super comfy though and received compliments all night. Definitely will rent dresses here on out. I am 5"8 and 165lbs, pretty muscular so the stretchiness was great if that helps anyone find the right fit. The other dress I ordered was a long and looked like a flood was coming so that one was a complete no go, unfortunately.

Awesome back view, but definitely a mini dress!

Size worn: 8
Rented for: Party
Loved this dress. Runs true to size and the back is rocking. I'm just 6ft tall and it was too short for my comfort level. If you're at all self conscious this dress would be hard to wear. To short for Spanx and too low cut for any other slimming undergarment. Material is thin so you can see outline of pasties or tape bra. Looks great if you can rock it, but I didn't have the confidence to go out in public in it.

This dress is STUNNING! It is a great combination of a classy look as it has long sleeves and covers your chest but still sexy as it showcases your figure, highlights your legs and has the sheer back. I got a TON of compliments on this dress all night. It was super comfortable and fit me to a T. Great for curvy, athletic body types. I have broad shoulders, a large chest, booty/hips but small waist. I didn't want to send it back!
