Third times a charm!

Size worn: 12L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
First, I have to commend RTR on their excellent customer service reps, this was the third dress that I rented ( the first two just weren't quite right for me) and each time my replacement dresses were deliverd on time with no issues. Also when the first two dresses were not what I needed I was met with nothing but friendliness and prompt troubleshooting in order to get the dress of my choice shipped to me overnight. Thank you RTR! Now, on to the dress, I rented this dress for a friends black tie 30th birthday party. It was perfect for the occasion! I didn't want to outshine the birthday girl but I still wanted to be stunning. I was sent the 10L and 12L, while both are true to size I wore the 12L because of the halter neckline and my full 36H bust. I didn't wear my bustier because it created too much of a lift, so if you have a fuller bust I would say you can go braless. The fabric on the dress is heavy which was perfect for the weather in January in Chicago (burrrr). My favorite thing about this dress was the high/low hemline, I think it adds a little something extra to the gown and it's a plus for a taller girl if you are worried about a dress not being long enough. I am nothing but happy about my whole experience, I can't wait to rent again from RTR!

The fit was to die for if your pear shaped. I was stopped by at least 8 people commenting on how beautiful the dress was. During the barat procession a whole table of women sipping martins exclaimed "oh wow look at her!" Remind yourself that I was walking with 400 people decked out to the nines is gorgeous Indian sari dresses. this is a special dress for sure, show stopper!

Beautiful dress. Felt like a celebrity in it, even with a broken arm!

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
After a stylist session at the NY showroom while on vacation I rented this for a red carpet 40th birthday celebration. I never would have chosen it just looking online as it looks very plain on the website but it is gorgeous in person! Thanks to my stylist (Danielle?? I think), who pulled it as option even though it was not on my list. Perfect fit and flare from bodice to skirt, very flattering cut and very COMFORTABLE! No need to "suck it in" all night :) The fabric is beautiful and is a good backdrop for some fun earrings and a glitzy clutch. Runs small, I had to wear the back-up 6 and I am ALWAYS a 4. Very substantial fabric, no need for a bra or any special undergarments. Perfect length for 5"7" plus 3" heels, back just hovered over the floor. I usually wear 4"+ heels but with a broken arm I needed to be more steady on my feet so it was perfect. My husband, who has great fashion sense and would be honest if it didn't work, also loved it. Loved this dress, wish I could keep it!

The dress fit perfectly! Im tall- 5'11 and wore 3.5" heels. I got the regular length and i loved where the dress fell. it was perfect on me. i cant imagine how long the Long would have been! I wear a 12 on top and a 12/14 on the bottom and the size 12 was perfect as it was cinched through the waist then came out at the hips. this dress was stunning and got tons of compliments!

I would have never tried this dress on but thankfully my stylist at the showroom told me to just give it a try. I couldn't stop smiling in it. Such a beautiful dress. It is a little heavy, but I wore it in May and was fine. So glad I rented it! Would totally do it again (or purchase at the next sale)

I really loved this dress! It was very unique, and got a lot of compliments.

Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
It was longer in the back than expected-- even with heels the dress was brushing the ground. Also, the front did not go up as high in the front as it did in the picture. It was a little bit big in the bust area and in the back, but it looked fine. I would recommend using fashion tape with this dress for around the neckline. The fabric is heavy, but I wore it outside in 70 degree weather and I was not overheated. Although not everything perfectly, the dress still looked great!

This dress is a dream. I wore this to my Senior Prom and I got endless amount of compliments. I also had an amazing hair stylist and make up artist that complimented the dress perfectly. I felt so beautiful and I didn't want to take the dress off. It's a heavy material but it was 87 degrees out and I had no complaints. My prom was Gatsby themed and it fit the look perfectly. I wouldn't change one thing, I just love it.

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size

The 4R fit was great for a small chest + ample behind combo: Fit snuggly up top but the bottom arched out in a really flattering way, gorgeous silhouette. The subtle pattern and high/low hem were also great details making it more than just a black dress (make sure to wear some show off shoes!). So many compliments!

This dress made my first Make-A-Wish Gala a wonderful success! So many compliments on this dress!

Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: True to Size

I went to one of the SoHo, NYC locations to try on dresses - using Rent the Runway for the first time. This was the first dress I tried on, but of course, felt compelled to try on many others for the experience. Fit like a glove - very comfortable...at first thought the fabric might be too heavy for dancing, but I was wrong. If you look at the picture of me with the dress and two other women, all three of us were in Rent the Runway dresses, along with many other women who recommended this wonderful service to us for our event gala. There was about 10 UPS bags for pick-up the day after our event! Never received so many compliments on a dress before and was so happy with the added vintage jewelry, that you cannot see in the pictures, but added some nice touches.

Nice dress. Safe choice. Very comfy.

Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I am 5'10" I was in 4" heels and a platform and the length was fine. The seam on the cleavage kept turning inside out at the edge which was frustrating and also I felt that the dress actually flattened my chest and pressed my beasts down. As I said, it's ok dress, a safe black tie choice.

Fit like a glove. Wore a strapless bra to add a little more chest volume - the deep V tends to flatten you out a bit. Looks like a very heavy fabric but was light on the body and extremely comfortable.

This dress is a perfect one to order from RTR because of the uneven hem. You don' t have to worry about it being too long! I had to have a ball gown and this one was just right. Elegant, and not over the top. I wasn't the "person of the evening" so I didn't want to stand out too much. My boyfriend loved it. I only saw one other person in the same dress that night, and hers was red. There were 700 people there, so it didn't matter! ;)

Great Dress for a TRUE Black Tie Event!

Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress ran a bit long in the back and does not go as high in the front as shown on the model. It was heavy and gave a lot of cleavage in the front. It would be perfect for a fall / winter Black Tie Event. A lot more material in the back that is also shown. If you are looking for a Big GOWN, then this is your dress... I just was not looking for something so large and long. Good dress just not for me.

The dress fit perfectly. I usually wear a 2 but decided to go with the 0 so I could have less length in he front. The heavier fabric made for perfect full skirt. I really don't have any cons for this dress, it was comfortable and very easy to wear. I received many compliments and felt great the whole night.

I was sent this dress in a size 2R and 4R when my second size choice in another dress was unavailable lady minute. RTR sent this style because it was similar to my original choice. This dress is so glamorous, classy and fabulous. The fabric is thick and the stitch details are so beautiful! I did not end up wearing this dress because the material was so heavy and I needed it for a NY wedding in July. I look forward to renting this dress in the future. When I called RTR to explain my situation they sent me another choice immediately! What could have been a stressful situation and at no point was I worried.

Got a ton of compliments on this gown. Wore it to a black tie wedding in Connecticut.

Size worn: 12R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I am a tall girl (5'10") and wore 4 inch heels. The back was a little shorter than I would've preferred but it didn't look bad. Similar to other reviews, the top runs a little small so I wore the larger backup size that I ordered. It was very comfortable, not too heavy for a summer wedding with outdoor ceremony. Overall, I was VERY happy with this dress for my event.

Lovely dress!

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Pros: the dress fit like a glove, and is a beautiful, heavy black fabric. The boning in the torso makes it fit well, and also allows you to go bra-less comfortably. I felt beautiful wearing it, and was very pleased with my rental. Cons: The fabric is longer in back; which means you may need to wear heels bigger than 1 1/2 inches (I don't like large heels), because people did step on the back of the dress every now and again. I also had to hold the bottom in my hand as I walked so it wouldn't get too dirty. The hem could use a good ironing. It's not easy to wear a bra with this dress if you wanted the support because the bra is visible under the dress. Altogether, delightful dress though!

I ordered this dress as my back up and ended up wearing it. I was really impressed with the condition of the dress and the quality. I loved the heavy drape of the fabric. On me the dress was a little large in the chest area, I maybe could have sized down to an 8. My husband didn't like the dress as much as I did. He thought it was not as flattering through the waist and hip area. But I received many compliments through out the night and felt beautiful and elegant.

No bra needed! I'm 5'2-5'3, 36D (160lbs) and the 10R was a perfect fit! It's probably the most figure-flattering dress I've ever worn. I love how it flattens out my tummy. The bell- shaped dress alluded an hour-glass silhouette. It's an elegant dress and made me feel like Cinderella the entire night!

This dress is absolutely beautiful. I am a first time renter and I will certainly be back! The floral pattern in the material was classic and sophisticated, and the structured bodice of the dress made it a very flattering piece.

The fit of this dress was amazing! It was just enough snug to stay in place, but still allowed room for breathing and cheesecake! I did have to pin the halter as it was a bit to loose.

The cut and fabric make this dress a knockout!

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
My only wish is that the dress came in a short version. I am 5'3" on a good day and had to put a temporary hem of about 3" in before wearing. I should have actually done at least another inch in front section somehow so that my killer shoes were more visible. PROS: The bodice is tight, so no bra needed. Keeps the girls snuggled nicely and makes for a very sexy cleavage. No need to suck it up in Spanx, as this dress is very forgiving of too many orders of chips and queso. I got SO MANY COMPLIMENTS throughout the night, some even from complete strangers. CONS: Length really. I was worried with a dress that has as much fabric as this one that i would look/feel like a teapot. But i felt great! I say YES to this dress!
