Love the dress, it's comfortable and looked great!
Fit perfectly. The only problem was that it turned out to be a hot sunny day, outdoor wedding and I was wearing black!

Nice enough
I did not wear this dress. It fit well. The lace top just wasn't my style.

So beautiful, amazing fit & price--I bought it!
Love Erin Fetherston and saw this online at Rent the Runway Sample Sale. Bought it and couldn't be happier with entire experience! Dress cam in two days, looks great--just wore to night out with girlfriends and it looked amazing (got so many compliments)! Will definitely look forward to future Rent the Runway sales!!!

Overall good fit, but meant for those with toothpick arms
I wore this dress to a company holiday party. The main body of the dress is a thicker fabric and is quite cozy, and the sheer fabric makes the dress a bit more formal. However, the sleeves were quite snug on my arms (which i'd consider average size, but are really long),

Perfect for NYE dinner!
This was a perfect, comfortable choice for a lower-key NYE dinner out in Chicago. The dress fit beautifully and was the perfect mix of heavier fabric (for Chicago winter warmth around my legs and midsection) and illusion sleeves and neckline (for a bit of skin without looking too exposed). The dress stretched enough to be comfortable but maintained its shape. Would rent again for a winter date/party.

Compliments all night long for my fiancée's work party!
I have a large, song-worthy bottom, it was great to be able to dance in this without constantly having to pull it down! Great for curvy ladies!

I LOVE this dress and wish I could keep it!
This was not my original order but when the dress I ordered did not fit I called and customer service was AMAZING and helped me pick out this dress which was overnighted to me (for the cost of shipping). This dress fit perfectly and hugged all the right places since it is stretchy. The 0 fit well but the 2 was slightly more comfortable (I have gained a few pounds recently). I had read comments that the sleeves were too tight but they fit me well (I am petite). Overall I loved this dress and wished I could keep it.

Very comfortable, great for casual to semi-formal affairs
Can be easily dressed up or down with accessories. True to size, length for a tall girl was perfect!

Comfortable dress
This dress is light weight and comfortable. The fabric stretches, but tends to bunch up when going from sitting to standing. I found myself tugging each time I stood. The mesh on top has no give, but there's plenty of room in the sleeves.

Nice dress - I will probably rent it again for another party.
The dress was snug across the bust, but wearable. However, the weather was hotter than expectd so I chose to wear another dress I rented from RTR with cap sleeves. The sleeves are not terribly sheer, but do make this dress more festive than a purely business affair type dress.

Lot's of Compliments, Lot's of Curves
I wore this dress to a charity fundraiser. The dress fit true to size but was a little more form-fitting than I typically prefer. I would make your back up a size larger if you don't like things very tight. That said, I got compliments all night. The length was also great, not too short or long. The see-thru mesh was sturdy and not stretched out. You definitely need a strapless bra with it. I would recommend this dress for a nice night out.

The dress didn't work in either size.
I wasn't able to wear either size dress. The 10 was huge on me and the 8 was so tight through the shoulders and arms I wasn't comfortable. I was in California for a wedding, I'm glad I threw my LBD in my suitcase so I did have a back up dress.

Good dress, not great.
In pictures the dress looks good, but I felt self conscious in it all night due to the snugness. I know that the dress is meant to be snug, but I am not used to wearing dresses like that. Spanx are a definite!

Accentuates your curves!
I absolutely enjoyed wearing this for my work dinner, and the fit of it complimented my curvy figure well. The dress is well-made with quality material. I ended up wearing the 10, although there was surprisingly little difference between the 10 and 12, at least on my bod. A couple "complaints" though! First off, I didn't find the sleeves to be especially flattering to my arms. You'd think with the black mesh there would be a slimming effect (like black stockings on your legs), but for some reason I felt like these almost had the opposite effect - they somehow looked chubbier! Also, considering this is a designer garment, I was surprised/disappointed that it wasn't lined. I feel like that can sometimes have a huge impact on how the dress moves on your body. I ended up wearing Spanx and a slip with it. Overall, a great dress! Recommended.

The dress was fantastic and I got a lot if compliments.
The dress is super comfortable and flattering. The sleeves are a bit tighter than I thought they'd be so if you ever do push-ups, keep that in mind

Sexy and slimming dress is a knock-out fit!
This dress is a fun dress that can be worn to a cocktail party or a just a fun night out. It fits well and has a little stretch to it, though not in the arms. However, I do have bigger arms and didn't have a problem.

Wish I owned it!
I ordered the 0 and the 2 and ended up wearing the 2 for a rehearsal dinner. The 0 fit but the 2 was more comfortable, especially around the neck. I loved the dress though. It fit in all the right places without being overtly sexy.

.
I really loved wearing this dress. I was so sad to take it off at the end of the night. We went out for cocktails and dinner on a "treat yoself" weekend in New Orleans. The dress hugged all the right areas and looked great. My only problem was the bra because my strapless didn't fit right and the top is mesh but i found a way to make it work. I would wear this one again!

felt like a sausage in this dress ;)
unfortunately, this dress was way to tight on me. I'm usually a size 6, and the size 6 was not flattering on me. Tight, and bunched up in weird places. And the sheer arms made me look bulkier for some reason. I've had great experiences with RTR, but unfortunately this time I picked the wrong dress for me.

Great dress!
The fit was great and slimming. The purple color was really beautiful and classy. I wore this to an after hours business event. Classy, but still fun. The sheer sleeves really make it.

Whimsical and classy
The mesh is fun and yet not scandalous. Long enough but was unable to zip up by myself :)

Fun dress, arms are tight
I ordered this dress for New Year's Eve and the style was great. The body of the dress fit great and I loved the colorblocking, but the arms were tight and I definitely had limited shoulder mobility. I ended up not wearing this dress because of the arms issue. Not sure if a larger size would have fixed the issue.

A new take on the LBD!
This dress is very comfortable and flattering! The purple and sheer sleeves add a fun twist. The fabric is stretchy and the back is sheer so it hugs your curves in all the right places and shows just enough skin!

Absolutely loved this classy and sexy dress :)
Wore this for my farewell party at work and have never received so many compliments on a "work" dress. At lunch the waiter and maitre d kept commenting on what a great dress it was. It fit great, hugged the right places and the design on the front was very slimming. Loved the sheer sleeves. In fact I loved it so much I already scheduled another rental for a holiday party. Def. recommend!!
