Perfect for winter weddings
I wore this to a wedding in NYC. The silver really stands out nicely - it felt like a party dress even though it was a conservative shape. Even though it was form fitting, it was flexible enough to dance in! Highly recommend for a winter wedding.

I wore this dress and Kate Spade necklace for a wedding in November. I received so many compliments
I am about 5'3 so the dress came to the top of my knee. Such an elegant yet comfortable dress! Even though I wasn't showing too much skin, I still felt like it wrapped my body perfectly to have a sassy edge.

Never felt so sexy all covered up!
It's always so challenging finding an appropriate dress for a fall/winter wedding. This past weekend was the coldest that it's been and this dress was perfect for the occassion. I am 5'2 so the dress fell close to my knees. Typically most of my dresses are slightly more revealing, but the cut of the dress and how it fit my body made it really sexy! Got a ton of compliments. Beautiful dress.

Beautiful dress for a holiday party!
This was my first rental and I was really pleased with this dress. I'm really petite, so I'm always worried about the fit. The dress hit slightly above the knee, which was perfect for the event. The dress was a little loose in the waist and shoulders, but I added a plain black belt to the waist and it really pulled it together. I got a lot of compliments on the dress!

Fit was perfect. I was lucky enough to be the first person to wear this dress! Nice dress to show off your legs, and it was nice to have my arms covered for a winter party.

Love!
I was worried about sizing since I'm petite, but this dress runs true to size. The zero fit perfectly. This was form fitting without feeling tight, and so comfortable! I wore it to my office Christmas party and loved it. The sleeves were slightly looser and longer on me than the model, but I wasn't bothered by it. At my height the hem hit just above the knee. I'd recommend this for an event where you want a fun dress that's still relatively conservative. PS: The dresses sent to me both had a small (maybe 3") slit in the back that was tacked down. Be sure to clip the thread to un-tack before you wear it! Great first experience with RTR!

Beautiful and Simple for a Festive Party - get ready for COMPLIMENTS
The dress was unbelievably easy to wear and not fussy at all despite the lace. It ran true to size, and zipped right up! I wore an "all in one" spanx underneath but didn't need to do anything special. Sparkly and fun for my company Christmas party. Lots of complements from both my husband and from partygoers. Highly recommend this dress.

Gorgeous Dress!
I rented this dress for two occasions-- first I wore it to a work event with a blazer and it was very professional looking. Then the next night I wore it to my husbands company holiday party (no blazer). At both events I received many compliments. It's a great holiday dress.Fit like a glove.

Such a pretty dress! Classy and tasteful, yet kind of sexy. Would love to own it!
This dress fit me perfectly! Length was just right and sleeves were appropriate for the season. I was a tad concerned that it would be too shiny in person, but it wasn't at all! Obviously, the dress received tons of compliments :)

Great Winter Wedding Dress!
If I was going to pick any dress on the RTR website to wear, this probably wouldn't have been my first choice. However, I was going to a wedding where I needed to dress pretty modestly and it was a winter wedding so I wanted to wear something warm. I was a little worried about how this dress would look on me, but I was pleasantly surprised at how classy and elegant it looked! I got quite a few compliments on the dress! The dress was very comfortable too which is always a plus. My only complaint is that I had on jewelry that kept getting snagged on the dress since the overlay is all lace. Other than that small detail, I was very happy with my choice!

Classy, elegant choice
Comfortable, classy. Wore it to a holiday party - lots of compliments. Wore it with The crystal cluster necklace. True to size, tad tight in the chest/shoulders but I still wore my normal size. Recommend sizing up for back up. Only issue was the lining hung lower than the lace and had to fashion tape it in place. Lovely dress!

This was a great dress, and I found it was form fitting - in the front! In the back it was saggy :-(
Unfortunately I could not wear this dress for the event in which I rented it. I tried it on the first day I got it and it seemed to fit fine, however no one was around to zip me up. On the day of the event my husband zipped me up and we found out that the lower back was bunchy/too loose, and the top of the dress in the back was sagging. I was bummed, but at least RTR refunded my rental fee. I will definitely try renting again in the future, but I have learned my lesson to make sure I FULLY try it on the first day.

Perfect for a sophisticated company party!!
Loved this dress as it was my first RTR experience! I loved the length and style of this dress. There is a navy blue slip under the lace that in flash photos you can see which I happened to love! I didn't have time to find the 'perfect' necklace so I went san's necklace and paired with red pumps and a red blazer. This dress is so versatile! I normally wear a 6/8 and I went with the 8, only b/c I was more comfortable in it- didn't even try on the 6. The dress is fitted but does not constrict or ride up like many fitted dresses. Received so many compliments on this dress at my company Christmas part from people my age (mid-20's) to some of my coworkers wives (40+). Didn't get the greatest pictures as I was visiting most of the time, but will post what I got from home. Will be renting again soon!! :)

Great dress for a holiday party!
This was dress was perfect for my office holiday party. It was very festive and sparkly, but not overly sparkly. While I got a lot of compliments on this dress, there were a few things that I didn't like. The pattern on the dress is kind of a floral pattern which doesn't come across very well in the pictures, so when I got the dress I was surprised by the pattern. Also, the lining of the dress is blue, which didn't bother me, except for that the lining was longer than the actual dress itself, so it kept showing, and I was constantly tugging at the dress to pull the dress over the lining. The sleeves are lace and don't have any lining, so they got caught on a lot of things. So be careful when wearing the dress not to get the sleeves caught on things. (like backs of chairs, other people's clothes) To close on a few positives: The dress photographs very well, and looks extremely sparkly in pictures. The fit was very flattering, and hugged my hour glass figure quite nicely.

Perfect holiday party dress.
This dress is much more sparkly than the picture making it a great standout winter party dress. It's form fitting so you need a flat stomach or the right undergarments for this one. Perfect length for a tall girl - hit a couple inches over the knee. Tons of compliments!

Disappointing
Although the dress was beautiful and arrived nicely packaged and fit beautifully; the lining hung down below the hem of the dress way to far and there was a small rip in the seam right below the zipper. I couldn't get a replacement in time so I was just disappointed.

Perfect amount of sparkle and glam for a company Christmas party
This dress ran true to size and hit just above the knee. It was form fitting but not too tight. The sparkle and pattern was perfect for this company Christmas party.

Show-stopper!
I normally wear a 6 in dresses, but an 8 in pants, so I ordered both sizes. The 6 was perfect! Body hugging, but I could wear a normal bra, and was comfortable to dance in. Only complaint was that when the dress arriving the lining had become unstitched from the shell, but I used some fashion tape and it wasn't a problem. I have never received so many compliments, and the service provided from Rent the Runway was excellent. Will definitely use again for other events.

Another RTR Knockout
This was my backup dress but ended up being more appropriate for the SF Ballet Gala. It was comfortable to wear and very true to size. The lining, however, was VERY stretched out and hung down about 2" so I had to do some quick basting. But overall the dress was great and I wish I owned it.

Fun dress for a fun evening!
While the dress overall ran true to size, the arms were large and stretched out (and I don't have the skinniest of arms) and the slip was too long for the skirt. I also didn't realize that it was actually more navy than it was black (the slip was navy, and looked strange against my black tights I got for the occasion).

Classy, fun, but not super flattering in the stomach area.
Rented for a holiday cocktail and it had a 'modest' length on my 5'2 frame with 4 inch heels. Pros: The see through arms of the dress add a sexy lace feel, while the sparkle of the silver adds some glam. Fabric does have some stretch for easy movement. Length is on the longer side, totally appropriate for work events. Cons: Had a boxy look, specifically in the stomach and upper arm areas (see photo) that could have been more stretchy/ form fitting. Slightly itchy in the arm area. Overall: Great dress and comfortable, highly recommend for the more classy affairs like work parties and or weddings that you would need a slightly longer hem line for. Boxy look could help hide the drinks and food during the night?!

Perfect dress for a work celebration
I wore this dress to a retirement celebration. My co-worker rented a dress also. We were both ecstatic with our choices and we both received many compliments. Others have already pointed out that the blue lining hangs out a little below. I solved this by simply pulling it up a bit around the waist and doubling it over. The fabric is so thin it wasn't noticeable. Aside from that the dress was perfect. Very comfortable which was important as we were the event planners and needed be able to move comfortably. I opted to go without a necklace since I wanted a more conservative look. I wore a silver cuff bracelet and simple hoop earrings. I'm normally a 2 but have put on some weight through the hips so the 4 was more comfortable. I would definitely recommend this dress and would be happy to wear it again for the right occasion.

Gorgeous!
This dress was a backup that I didn't wear. Although this dress is very beautiful, it wasn't what I wanted for the event that I was attending, which was a Mardi Gras themed party. It fits true to size. A little room in the waist. There is a slip underneath that kept showing for the 10 minutes that I had the dress on so I would imagine that I would have been pulling dress down all night. This is why I gave it a 4 star rating. The shiny lace overlay is very pretty. I would wear subtle jewelry with it like some pearls. Anything else may be too much. Pair with black sandals or pumps.

Wore the dress for an engagement party (cocktail attire).
The underlay on my particular dress was dropped (i.e., it was visible below the lace overlay), indicating that it had been improperly dry-cleaned. Fashion tape and a few safety pins saved the dress, but I was disappointed in the quality. The fit was tighter than I had expected - I thought it would be more like a sheath, but it was actually tight on the bust and stomach - a little less forgiving than I would have liked, but the dress still got me some compliments.

Classic dress for a formal affair - perfect fit
The dress fit perfectly! The pattern is slightly different than the picture and the fabric a little itchy - it`s not a dress i`d buy. But the perfect fit and the fact that the dress is "bra friendly" makes it a good pick! I`ve got tons of compliments on the dress :)

I got so many compliments on this dress! It fit right in with the professional dress requirements!
I ordered both the 6 and the 8. Although the 6 fit well, I preferred to wear the 8 as it had a little more room across the shoulders and hips. I am pretty short, so this dress hit me just above the knees and was perfect! I paired this dress with the Kate Spade Silver Bright Spot necklace and it was just the added touch this dress needed! It photographs well and I got lots of compliments all night! I will rent this dress again and RTR was amazing!

The dress spoke for itself.
The dress is kind of like a tight wrap. A little itchy. But it allows for minimalist approach to accessories. I wore it even without a necklace or earrings. | The dress photographs very sparkly, but subtly sparkly. Great dress, would recommend.

Classy dress for teacher attending school gala.
Great conservative yet flashy option. The shine is amazing! All the moms complemented me on it. There is absolutely no stretch, and the shift shape was too loose around the middle on me, so I dug up my wedding belt and it worked very well. It was a cold, blustery night and this dress really was warm. There were a few snags in the fabric from previous wears, but nothing too egregious, and the attached navy slip underneath sagged a bit, but not enough to cause a problem. Overall, perfect teacher dress for a fancy school event! Thanks again RTR!

Beautiful dress for a formal night
I received so many compliment on this dress! It is classy but the lace sleeves and perfect length give it a sexy feel. It's nice that RTR let's you select 2 sizes because I actually ended up in a size smaller than I usually am but was very happy with the fit. The sleeves are a little itchy, but it definitely didn't impact the night. Like others mentioned, the under layer is navy and did peek out at times. Overall, very happy with my rental!

Compliment after compliment on this dress
I wore this dress to a local political fundraising cocktail party. I was one of the more formally dressed individuals, but it was the perfect combination of sophistication and spunk. I received MANY compliments on this dress and would love to own it. It would have received 5 stars, except for the lining slipped below the front of the dress all night.

Great dress for a December wedding!
Loved this dress. I ordered a 4 and a 6 as others mentioned it ran small. I ended up wearing the 4, which fit like a glove. The dress was very comfortable and easy to move around in. My only complaint is that the slip would show at times when I moved. This was my first RTR experience and I am now renting my second dress.
