I wore this dress for a fundraiser holiday party with my actors networking group. I loved this dress! Looks more purple in person, but appears blue in photos. Very comfortable and flattering. I could wear a strapless bra with it. Loved the cut-out detail in the back. Highly recommended!

I actually rented another dress that didn't end up fitting and this was sent as a replacement, but I was so happy with it! It fit perfectly and looked great on. The blue color really does pop on the black and the cut is very flattering. Got compliments on it all night!

This dress fit very well and the material has a pretty iridescent shimmer. The dress is a royal blue. I paired a belt with it and it went so well several ppl said they thought it came with the dress. Good for night time event; I was sad to send it back- I loved it!!

I needed a dress to go to a Communion and rented a different dress. Unfortunately that dress was too tight around the hip area and the AMAZING people at RTR sent me this dress the very next day just in time for my event. This dress is gorgeous! The color is so vibrant and the fit is very comfortable. If you are someone who is small on top and bigger on the bottom, this dress is perfect. It accentuates your waist without making your bottom portion look too big. I regret not taking a picture of the back. Im a RTR fan for life!

It was very comfortable. Was distracted by the fit, so i could move around and socialize...

This dress is made for someone with a smaller upper frame and great if you have hips. I am 5'8/135lbs/34A. I should have ordered the 4, but that was my mistake. It was incredibly comfortable. Because it cuts at the waste instead of the hips, you have plenty of room to move around in. Dress is great for sitting and eating and dancing. It rose about 2 inches above the knee. I would have preferred it to be another 2 inches shorter for it to feel fun and flirty without being too sexy. Not sure how it would look on shorter women without massive heels.

Fits true to size; only thing I'd say is that the high neck line was fine for me but be harder on different body types.

I wore this to a wedding and it got so many compliments. The blue color really shines in photos with the metallic accents, which pick up light really well. I felt comfortable in it all night. No spanx or bra needed, which definitely added to the comfort level! You can tell the material is high quality.

I wore this for a wedding rehearsal dinner and received many compliments. The color is vivid blue.

Size worn: 12

The dress fits tightly around the bodice but is comfortable. The skirt seems too wide on the hanger, but I pressed it and it was perfect when wearing it. It thought I would feel cold since the arms and back were bare, but the heaviness of the fabric made the dress feel warm. The color is a gorgeous, metallic blue that draws attention, but is not gaudy. The length also seemed like it would be long, but I wore 3 inch heels and it hit right above my knee, which is what I wanted. This is a perfect little dress for any occasion.

Cute dress for formal event

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
Dress stood out against the sea of standard LBDs. The blue was shinier than I expected, but it wasn't bad. Much different than something I'd pick out off the rack. That's the fun of RTR. I should have sized down for my second dress instead of up. It was much too big in top and I had to double pad my strapless bra to try to fill it up. That said, this is a good choice for a pear as the skirt has plenty of room for hips, just keep in mind if you are small in the bust and torso, you may want to size down. Length was just above my knees - ideal for me. Overall it was a good choice.

I was kind of nervous renting the dress without trying it on because dresses always fit me snug on the hips and way too loose and big on the bust, but this dress fit like a glove. It was as if the dress was made for me and it made me look even skinnier.

I absolutely LOVED this dress! I got tons of compliments on it all night! I ordered the 10 and the 8 and the 10 was a bit baggy in the chest area so I went with the 8. It hides any sort of stomach issues you may have and is very flattering in the arm area! I loved the necklace the model wore but I ended up finding one very similar on Amazon for cheap. It really did go perfectly!

Absolutely beautiful vibrant color. Was only able to get the 0 and that was perfect. The dress has a nice satin lining. May be heavy for summer outing. Customer service at RTR is outstanding. Original dress ordered was unavailable the week of my event. This was a last minute choice and I am so happy I got this one instead!

PERFECT FIT!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was actually my back up but I loved it so much more that I had to wear it! Only rented a 2 and it fit perfectly! The fabric is heavier so it's great for a fall/winter wedding and the metallic color is as well. Was able to wear a regular strapless bra with no problems. Agree with other reviews that the high neckline would sometimes be uncomfortable when sitting but if I readjusted it was fine. So so pretty and got tons of compliments! Want to wear it again!

Fresh out of the bag, I knew that this dress was going to be beautiful on. I submitted 2 pictures to try and capture how the light plays against the fabric. It fit my frame quite nicely. It was comfortable. Easy to get in and out of it alone. I got tons of compliments both verbal and non-verbal from various strangers at the Ball. Had I not flooded my Facebook page with pics - I swear I'd rent this one again!

Beautiful color- interesting cut in the sleeves and the open back. It was a tad small for me in the sleeves but the 2 would have been too big everywhere else. A little too shiny for my taste and not crazy about the way the skirt sort of poofs out on the side. I did not wear it out.

Gorgeous, high quality dress. Great for a party!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I loved this dress. I wore it to a holiday party and received several compliments. The fit was pretty true to size. I usually wear a 2, sometimes a 4, and the size 2 fit well. I would say if anything, it runs *slightly* big. I got the size 0 as my backup and that probably could have worked too, but it was a bit tighter and shorter than I wanted it to be. This was my first Rent the Runway experience and I was so pleased! I was nervous about ordering something that I wasn't able to try on in advance, but being able to order two sizes helped put my mind at ease. You can tell the dress is very well made and high quality. It is tailored nicely and seemed to fit in all the right places, and the fabric is nice and thick. I do not have a single complaint about this dress. I wore the dress with a gold plated Ella Carter necklace with crystal flower accents (also from Rent the Runway). Loved this too!

Great service for a first timer with RTR. Wonderful dress!

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size

Both dresses arrived on the scheduled date. I ordered the 0 and 2 as the back-up. I ended off wearing the 0. Like some previous reviews stated the upper body area does run small but fitted my shape very well. The blue is so vibrant and shiny . It was perfect for my event and I received lots of comments on how pretty it was. Due to the shape of the neckline I decided against wearing a necklace. Black sparkly heels, blue iridescent earrings and a black clutch tied it all together. Can't wait to rent my next dress!

LOVE LOVE LOVE this dress! I wore a size larger than normal because the original was damages, but this was super comfortable and not too big on me.

I ended up wearing the 2 (didn't even try on the 0, and when I went to send it back, I noticed one of the buttons on the upper back was missing so I was glad I didn't need that one...) and it fit great in the chest/midsection. Perfect length, nice amount of shimmer for winter. Another dress I'd love to own!

First RTR experience - amazing!!

Size worn: 2
Rented for: Wedding
I received both the 2 and 4 in this dress - I wore the 2 mainly because the fit and flare style allows for more room skirt. The color isn't nearly as loud in person as it is in some of the reviewers photos - but still a fun take on the LBD. It has a heavier fabric, which was perfect for the December wedding I went to in Florida. As for my entire RTR experience - amazing! I received a box of Godiva chocolates and a note just because their email server mis-sent an email saying my backup size in this dress wasn't available (which it was!) definitely a customer for life!
