Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore my highest heels and felt like the dress was too long for me. I am 5.3" I had to pick it up while going up escalators. I also had to walk very carefully to avoid getting my heels stuck on the lining. Someone approached me to compliment me on the dress. I felt comfortable, length issue aside.

Overall, I loved the dress! It was simple yet elegant. Perfect for dancing at prom!
Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I am 5'7 and wore 4 inch heels. The dress was just above the ground which I liked it made walking easier because I did not feel as if I would trip! The top fit comfortably around the bust.

Phenomenal substitute...I was Dynamite!
Size worn: 12R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I truly thought my weekend was ruined when I found out that the dress I ordered was not expected to arrive until the last day of my order time frame, two days after my event. I got a hold of customer service and the stylist helped me find red dresses that were in stock in the warehouse and could be overnighted. To my surprise they were willing to send multiple styles and sizes just to make sure I had something for my event. Not overly optimistic I spent the rest of my night running around town trying to find other dresses just in case. By 9:30 the next morning my dresses had arrived. One style was an automatic no, I am a busty girl and there was no way I was showing my girls off that much. However, the Genevieve was a perfect fit (12R), flowy, flattering and just long enough to be able to were my new BCBG shoes and not drag on the floor. The color was not as dark as it looked online, but in real life is the perfect apple red, it matched perfectly with all my accessories and manicure. I was Dynamite! Everything happens for a reason, when the original dress I ordered arrived, I found out that I would have had a bigger issue on my hands had it arrived on time (Did not fit, too long and way to much boobage). Everything worked out for the best and I couldn't have been happier.

I got this dress for my daughter which is why the measurements above may not match. She is 5' 2", 115lbs, a size 4 in normal clothes but usually a size 6 in dresses. She wore these with 4" heels which were perfect since the dress is long. She absolutely loved the dress.. said it was super comfortable!! and of course, she looked great!

A nice dress for a black tie event.
Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This was a nice dress and it came with the black belt pictured. It can be a bit tight in the bust so make sure to order up a size if you think that might be an issue. The flowing bottom of the dress starts a bit high and doesn't show off a tiny waist/stomach. That being said, it's great if you want a little extra coverage in that area. This was my first time using Rent the Runway and it was a GREAT experience. They thought of everything! The dresses were packaged very nicely and they made everything so easy. I will be renting dresses in the future! Thanks so much!

Winter Wedding Wonderland
Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this dress for a December wedding in New York City. I knew I wanted to wear red and this dress came to be BRAND NEW which was a nice surprise. Something to note that the belt is a separate piece so if you wanted to accessorize with a different color belt you totally could! You could also get a pretty broach or something the cover where the belt connects.

Classic. Comfortable. Flattering. Perfect dress!
Size worn: 10L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was perfect for our black tie dinner! It fit true to size, and the longer length was ideal for me (I'm 5'9). Contrary to the other reviews, my dress did come with the black bet -- which really helped tie the look together. I'm a classic pear shape, with a smaller bust and larger hips, so I did run into some issues with the top being too big. However, the corset top and belt helped it stay up and it really wasn't an issue at all. RTR was fabulous! They helped me pick sizes and overall it was a great, easy service. I will definitely be renting again soon!

Great for a Christmas wedding- very happy with my choice!
Size worn: 10R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The dress did not have the black belt shown in the picture, so I had to wear my own. It didn't pull in as much at the waist as I would have liked, but overall, I was very happy to wear this to a Christmas wedding. It does run very long though. It was recommended that I wear the long for my height and even with 2 inch heels I still had to be careful not to step on my dress in the regular.

Grecian, flowy-type feel. Pretty, simple, Understated
Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This was my back up dress that I didnt end up wearing but still thought was a pretty option. The black belt in the photo did not come with it, so I added my own gold one. I think a crystal belt would be the most pretty for a holiday party. This dress was VERY tight in the bust. Im a 34C-D and it would have been tough to go as corsetted as this made me feel for the whole night...that being said, you could likely still fit into the 2 even with a larger bust. For a girl 5'4" and under I would get the regular or petite length. This was the 2L and it was way too long, even with 4" heels. The skirt part is very flowy and romantic...would be stunning on a woman with a small waist and curvy hips. Very classy, simple and understated.

Classic Elegance in Red!
Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was sent to me as an alternate when my back-up size was unable to be sent last minute. While I ended up not needing to wear it, I did try it on and loved the way it looked! Very classic styling and gave fantastic shape! The fabric was so lightweight too! It just wasn't quite the look I wanted to achieve for my particular event. I would definitely consider renting this dress again, however!

This dress was classy and elegant!
Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The color is lovely - not too bright, and not boring! I was worried I would need to order a long, but I wore the regular with 3-4 inch heels and it was just barely above the floor. No need for a bra with this dress (at least not with smaller-chested individuals), which was great! I also rented the earrings that the model is wearing and they were a nice accent.

Elegant, simple, and well-tailored
Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress does not come with a belt, as pictured. I am petite, but with larger hips/butt for someone my size, so I straddle between a 0 and a 2. The 0 fit perfectly in the torso, but was quite long, even with 4" heels. I was able to use hem tape to shorten it, and despite being chiffon, you couldn't tell. I'd definitely recommend this dress, and would wear it again.

I rented this dress for a formal event at the Met
Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress is lovely. Very well made. A very basic dress, not a show stopper, but the red made it a little different. I found it to run very small though. I am usually between a 2 and a 4, and the 4 took some serious help to zipper. There was not even room for a strapless bra. But the good part is that dress actually has a built in bra and some boning down the chest. I am a 32 E, so going braless is usually not an option, but this dress held everything in place.

Glamorous night!
Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Dress fit perfectly and was very comfortable. Even the regular was still VERY long for my 5'4'' frame. The style made me look a little "fuller" I thought, but I still felt really glamorous in it. RTR is great - can't wait to use it again! (this was my first rental)

Liked this dress. It was comfortable and fit well, but was not a WOW dress. Color was beautiful. Made my (already big) hips look a bit wider.

Loved the dress! Received many compliments
Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I am 5'5 or so, wore substantial heels, and felt like I was going to trip. The length would be perfect for someone who is 5'6-5'7 with 3-4 inch heels. If I had bought the dress, I would definitely have had it hemmed. The top was also a little large, but not so much so that it looked bad. The other problem was that the dress (size 4, backup size 6) came with size 12 belts. Needless to say, they did not fit!

Amazing evening
Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented the dress for my school's Barrister's Ball (aka law school prom). The dress was absolutely beautiful. I got lots of compliments. It fit my body really well. I wore the size 0R. I got the 2R as my backup size and it was way too big on me. The 0R was a little long (I'm 5'5" and was wearing 3" heels), and I had to hold up the skirt whenever I was walking, which was a little annoying, but to be expected of a dress that's not tailored to the person wearing it. Also, the black belt was included with the dress.

Gorgeous dress even though I didn't end up wearing it!
Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I truly loved this gown and, given no other choices, would have worn this in a heart beat. The color is really beautiful - elegant even. The fit was perfect for my body type (small up top, slight pear shape), but ended up going with another gown simply because of the type of event and "feeling" I was going for. Length and fit were perfect, the belt was a great add on, the neckline was very flattering, and the material was fantastic. Highly recommend!

I love this color, overall it was a great fit! Cons: the regular was a bit too long even with heels.
Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I was a little worried that I would have to keep pulling the dress up all night, but the top fit wonderfully even for someone lacking in the bust department. I had to call to request that the belt be sent with the dress since others have mentioned that it didn't arrive with their dress, so just something to take note off. As mentioned previously, the regular was a bit long for me, I'm 5 ft 2in, and my heels were about three inches, it was kind of annoying having to pull the dress up to walk but it still looked amazing. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a classy red dress!

Dress looked amazing!
Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress was awesome! Very soft for polyester. It was pretty long on me, but I was just careful with it all night. As mentioned in other reviews, it did not come with the belt. Although RTR does have the belts for it. I requested them be sent to me once I got the dress, but the belt did not come in time for me to wear it. I suggest you talk to RTR before you rent this dress to make sure the belts get sent with the dress. Was extremely happy with the result for my first rental. Will rent again!
