Weird fit - Do not recommend this

I'm 5'4" and 138 pounds. I got the medium and it fit very tight, but the large was too big. I rented this for a wedding but didn't end up wearing. The off the shoulder style was WAY too restricting on the arms. I could barely move them!! If i moved them past my shoulders, the whole flap would come up near my neck. This dress is beautiful but i do NOT recommend this dress if you plan on moving at all lol. Thank u, next!!!

Quick & easy delivery!

This dress was perfect for events that my husband and I attended in New York City! I think it ran slightly big. I typically wear between a 4-6 more on the 6 end however I wore the 4 in this dress! Beautiful holiday color!

This dress was super comfortable and I received a ton of compliments on it! Highly recommend.

The biggest challenge with this dress was keeping it hung properly so it didn't wrinkle between when I initially tried it on and the event. It was comfortable to dance in and relatively forgiving of my curves (read: hid them well). It made me look super tall because of the pencil skirt-like cut, so if you're tall it may accentuate that, for better or worse.

Too small

I received this dress as a free back-up, but it didn't fit. I'm usually a Medium in dresses, but this was way too small. The material is beautiful and a nice quality and I wish I had been able to wear it.

The fit was perfect--the material was thick and worked well with my wide-ish hips. Beautiful dress!

Very happy that I bought this as a backup dress. It arrived at 5 p.m. for a 6 p.m. dinner (before a formal event), but that just made it extra exciting. Loved the look; haven't worn something off the shoulder or tight like this before, but both worked really well!

I loved this dress and received so many compliments! I would highly recommend it!

I have thick hips, but a smaller waist and this dress accentuated all of the right places. It fits true to size, the material is nice and thick, and the color is gorgeous!

Great dress! Received a lot of compliments!

Beautiful dress and amazing quality! I wish I would have gotten a size bigger. I'm usually a 6 so I ordered a medium, it worked but it was a tad snug! Lots of compliments and loved the deep green color! Sexy, but classy!

Amazing quality material

This dress was the perfect material for a nice event. It was thick material and felt great. It was a tiny bit tight around the waist and I think that just comes with the limited sizes offered. I loved the detail around the top with the fold-over fabric. Would wear again!

Super flattering fit

More forgiving than I expected, and really flattering! I'm happy I rented it for a holiday party vs a wedding because (like most off the shoulder dresses) it would have been difficult to dance in for hours. I'd totally recommend it otherwise!

Beautiful Color, Beautiful Fit

This was my backup dress. I thought it was sexy but still appropriate for a holiday party for work. The color is gorgeous. I was worried that it would be too long on me because I'm only 5 feet tall, but I think it worked out fine. The material is nice and thick and holds you in in all the right places. I got compliments all night! It was also super comfortable, especially for a semi formal dress.

SO MANY COMPLIMENTS!

I have never received so many compliments on a RTR dress! I wore it for a work Christmas party and the style was unique and classy. The material is thick and forgiving, and the fit was great. I am currently wearing a size 10 in pants and the XL fit well. I highly recommend!

Beautiful and slim

This dress really was beautiful. The deep teal looked luxurious, the fabric was thick, and the cut was slimming. It was a pinch snug but not enough to bother me. The off-shoulder thing made it difficult to put my jacket on but that's just that nature of that style. Didn't have to wear a bra since the fabric was thick (which is always a plus) (it helps that I'm flat chested). Felt very elegant and pretty in this dress. Wore it to a work holiday party.

Beautiful neckline and silhouette

This dress felt great--nice thick and well-crafted material. Very comfortable through dinner and late into the evening. I thought it ran a bit big around the waist and the slit there gapped a bit. I wore it to a work event and was planning to minimize this feature as much as possible, so that didn't bother me--just pulled the top lip over the bottom and no more slit.

Would rent again.

This was an beautiful dress, gave me a great hourglass shape. However the sleeves were a bit difficult, as they do not allow you do raise your arms (i.e. for dancing) without the material slipping up and needing to be readjusted. Also the bottom of the dress (below thighs) was a bit loose. This was good for dancing, but looked kind of baggy if you're just standing there. Overall, would rent again.

Everyone complimented saying that I always have the most cutting edge fashionable attire. I owe that to rent the runway the last few years. The dress fit great and made me feel dynamite.

Great dress, lots of compliments

Great rental, beautiful color but not as deep green as I thought. Had problems with the zipper and the cut out did not show much because I have a short torso. Seems to have built in spanx which is great. Classy and flattering

Wedding guest dress-lots of compliments

Went up in size due to previous reviews. Was a touch big but the medium would have been to tight. Many compliments and very comfortable!

I wore this to my engagement party in the winter, awesome awesome!

I wore this to a winter engagement party. Color is beautiful, cut is also amazing. I'm usually a small, but I assume it's not the dress, it's just all the winter eating :) The only downside is that the M was damaged, the zipper hem had come unthreaded and puckered a bit, but otherwise it was great. The material is thick and hugs in the right places, and it is sexy without being scandalous.

My favorite rtr dress so far. it was the perfect color and style for a December wedding and I even wore it for nye to a formal event. It's runs a little small I squeezed into the medium because I didn't wear have to wear a bra and I was very comfortable the whole night! Would highly recommend this dress I got a ton of compliments!

This dress fit my curvy body very well. I took advice from the other partygoers to size up.

The fit works well with hourglass shape. I'd definitely wear this dress again to another type of formal event.

Received a lot of compliments!

I ordered the XL and it fit like a glove but I don't necessarily consider myself a big girl so I would say def order one size up from what you think you'd wear. It has the slit on the rib cage but considering this was for a work event I opted to not let it show - it was nice to have that option. Great dress though, a ton of compliments!!

My dream dress!

I wore this to a work event and it struck a great balance between appropriate and elegant and fun - all very important to me. The color was amazing and the fit was great. If I had to choose, the fit was on the smaller side which could be because I’m taller than average. Even so, this dress fit me like a glove and I loved it! I did not wear a bra and there was no issue, and I would recommend that for anyone who also has an on-the-smaller-side chest. One of the best dresses I’ve ever worn, got tons of compliments, huge success.

Too casual for my occasional, but loved the dress

Fit like a glove! The zipper was super sticky, but once I finally got it closed I loved it! The material wasn't fancy enough for the wedding I'm attending, but I loved the cut and the dress held me in in all the right places.

Unique dress, very comfortable

I followed reviewers' suggestions and sized up to fit my hips & booty. There was no pulling in those areas but the waist and bust of the dress were quite loose on me. I probably could have gotten away with a size smaller and the dress still would have looked good. Still giving it five stars because sizing was a user error.

Classy and nice!

I'm between size 6 and eight and I wear a medium. Which was perfect fit. However the zippers go up-and-down very difficult. Even on the large size. They need to fix the zipper, other than that beautiful dress, thick and nice material...

This was a prohibition themed party; a few accessories transformed this dress. Many compliments!

Great fit. Dress came with a small separation on a seam. Used double faced fabric tape to make it invisible!

Dress fit well. Would have needed shapewear which would have been difficult with the separation between top and bottom. Separation is much larger than picture. Returned it.

Bargain dress

I'm between a 4 and a 6, so the small was really snug. I'm flat chested so it fit perfectly up top, but the bottom half was really tight causing the fabric to pull and ripple in the front. The medium was a better fit on the bottom, but so large on top which created a baggy look. I wound up wearing the small so that I didn't look like I was swimming in the dress. Also- the hanging strings are SO annoying I kept on running to the bathroom to shove them back in. Normally I would cut them out but since it's a rental I had to keep them intact.

Fit great. The material is thick and somewhat stretchy so very flattering. Was really comfortable for long hours. Zipper is a little rough to use but manageable. Would recommend!

Flattering cut

The cut of this dress is very flattering. As someone with very little in the way of hips, this gave me some hourglass definition. I didn't wear it out because I didn't love how it fit me, but if it were a bit less snug I would have

So many compliments on my dress, people say my wedding dress needs to be formfitting like this!

I have wider hips but a small waist so the midsection where there's a slight opening was not as snug as I hoped. I almost wanted to ask to buy this from Rent the Runway... I might look for the dress to purchase.

This dress was great! Super stretchy and comfortable

A little bit tight but overall I loved it. If you're in between sizes then size up (for reference I usually wear a Medium or Large an wore the large). Other than that this dress was classy, a great color and very appropriate and still super cute.

Perfect dress for the event, so many compliments on the color!

Loved this dress! It fit perfectly on me with my height. The zipper was a little stiff, but worked out on the long run. The high slit made it the perfect amount of sexy and beautiful. Easy to hide a strapless bra too! The color was perfect, bright and vintage, while staying subtle.

Customer service And timeliness of dress arrival was fantastic

I have a short torso so the slit wasn't able to properly show, which actually was fine because the dress still looked awesome ! Hugged my curves in all the right places. If you wanna to go with the "off the shoulder look" the material kind of bunches near the dress area. Overall, a great dress I loved it !
