Great fit and material. Love that you get 2 sizes.
Runs smaller so I went with the bigger size but it still fit great and had nice thick material so I didn't need spanks.

Pop of color at a conference
In a sea of dark suits and dresses, I definitely stood out in this fabulous dress. The sleeves and fit made it appropriate to wear at a conference of legal professionals. Received many compliments. I found it a bit short - length was about 4 inches above my knee but it only felt like an issue when I went up the escalator. I'm 5'4", 115 lbs. and chose to wear the size 2 over the 0 just because it wasn't as snug. Although material was thick, be sure to wear smooth undergarments.

Very fun and easy to wear dress. Would wear again.
The fit was true to size. It was more orange than I expected, but was a very flattering color and cut.

Beautiful cut, color and detail at the neck. Short!
Wore this with an armful of bangles. Much shorter than I anticipated. I am 5'4", so take that into consideration. The fabric was a knit, so did not wrinkle. Very feminine and a great cut for my smaller waist and larger hips. The color is gorgeous and flattering.

This was worn for a summer wedding in Houston.
It fit pretty well. The material is kind of thicker, but it is stretchy and I think it fit pretty well. Even though the material is thicker, it wasn't excessively hot. I liked the flair of the skirt, it made it twirly and fun. The only complaint that I have is how the material sometimes lays on your body (not quite sure how to describe this exactly). I am a very fit, lean person (I have qualified multiple times at the National and World level for Duathlons) and my stomach is pretty flat. Unfortunately, the material didn't lay very nice across my stomach (it had a weird indent around my belly button and made my abs kind of look like a pouch). You can't really tell from the pictures, but I noticed it some in the mirror, so it really wasn't a deal breaker. However, if you do have a bit of extra stuff around your stomach, be warned that the thicker material won't hold it in.

Simple but super cute!
I wore this to my best friends bridal show in April! It was the perfect color for a spring April shower. I'm 5'2 so it was very flattering at the waist and went just above the knee. This dress is perfect to dress up or dress down! I would definitely rent again.

Amazing!
Loved the color! Loved the fit! Loved the sleeves. Just a tad bit short for me, but I like longer dresses. Sized up only to give me an extra length.

Perfect for fall!
I ordered this dress to wear to a friend's rehearsal dinner as it fit her color scheme perfectly (orange, purple, gold). I have honestly never worn the color orange but I was pleasantly surprised by this dress. Despite being chilly outside I was comfortable the entire night due to the dress' thick material. My only complaint is that the material- though stretchy- shows every bump and roll; I ran out to buy shapewear which somewhat eliminated the self-consciousness but not completely. I got both the 2 and the 4 but stuck with the 2 as I found the extra material in the 4 accentuated my tummy. Had a fantastic night and felt like a million bucks.

Not a great fit for a big bust!
The shoulders are very strange and do not sit well! It was very flattering on the stomach and lower torso, but the way it fit on my shoulders made it a no - go.

Beautiful, simple dress, perfect for church
I had originally ordered a completely different dress, but when I was notified it was damaged, I received this dress and another in its' place. This dress was modest and perfect for the church ceremony at the wedding, but still had a really fun neckline. It did for true to size. My one complaint was that the fabric isn't very forgiving, and any sort of lines from undergarments could be seen pretty easily. Overall, still an adorable dress.

I wore this to a graduation so I felt the right amount of dressy!
This material is extremely thick. It was about 90 degrees out, so I was sweating A LOT. I would recommend for Fall or early Spring, but not summer. Other than that, the dress was great! It fit me perfectly!

I wore the dress for a graduation with my boyfriend's family. Perfect for the occasion!
Great color and flattering fit. It was short enough to be cute and fun, but also conservative enough for a family occasion. I also liked the criss-cross on the top, adding some sweet detail. I am normally a 2 or 4, and was concerned because my backup size (2) was unavailable; but the 4 ended up fitting perfectly! Thick enough, and stretchy fabric, so that it falls well, and you don't have to overly worry about undergarment lines showing. I wore with flat, gold sandals, and big turquoise earrings.

Not fit and flare
I really wanted to love this dress for a spring time wedding. However, the dress had zero give to it and highlight every imperfection. On the model it looked like a fit and flare style, but I found it to be more body hugging then anything. I even tried to size up to wear it, because it is such a beautiful color to no avail.

I did not wear this dress...
It fit fine, slightly tight in the shoulders for me (I do have broader shoulders), but it just didnt make me feel special. It was very basic and reminded me of something I would wear to a nice brunch, but not to an outdoor wedding (I ordered it for the cut as it was a very conservative Christian wedding)--but it also ended up being a little too short for my 5'7" frame for the setting. But it was made very nicely and overall I liked the dress, just not for a wedding.

Sizing was off.
The last Halston Heritage dress I got was a 2 and www very roomy. I thought a 4 would be plenty big but not this one. Extremely short and I couldn't even zip it.

Not what I expected...
The dress looked old and shabby. Was very form fitting, so I had to wear spanx. I rented the triple stranded pearl necklace to go with it, but didn't wear it because it didn't look right. I would not rent this again :/. On to the next dress!

Loved the color and comfort of the dress!
I ordered a 2 and 4, and put the 4 on first and felt super comfortable so decided to go with it. I wore it for a day at the races and everyone loved the dress. I never really wear orange but loved it! The length and fit were a perfect mix of cute and classy! Would def recommend to a friend. *Only con would be that the stomach area is pretty fitting. It fit well but after eating I felt just a small bit uncomfortable.

Loved this bright dress for work! I wore it on a rainy day and it made everything more cheerful.
This dress has very thin fabric, although the stretch is nice. You will most likely want to wear some form of Spanx or undergarment if you have anything BUT a super flat stomach. I loved the details on the neckline of this dress and that the sleeves were longer and not too snug. This is a short dress so if you're tall keep that in mind. Overall a nice dress, but I'm not sure I'd rent it for anything else since the shapewear/thin fabric shows every single bump even from a bra strap!

Pretty Color- but too small
The dress is fitted very tight across the abdomen, with a flaring skirt. It is not A-Line as it appears in the model photo. I thought the size 8 would fit me, but it didn't. Even with Spanx, it wasn't very flattering.

Cute but runs somewhat small
I thought I would have definitely needed the size 2 but it wasn't available, so I reluctantly ordered the 4 and hoped it wouldn't be too huge. The 4 fit perfect! It's a cute dress and I got a lot of compliments but it is very unforgiving. Even the slightest bit of bra bulge is very visible. I would recommend it, but if you do rent make sure you have the proper undergarments :-)

Didn't work for me but still cute
The dress is darker than the picture and it definitely should not be worn by anyone taller than 5'7 as it is very short. It didn't work out for me but Rent the Runway graciously sent me another dress in time for my event so it all worked out.

Great fit and amazing color!
I wore this to my sister-in-law's wedding. It was a late summer wedding, and the color was perfect. I'm 5'6"ish and the length was just short enough to show off my legs with 3 inch heels. I paired it with gold and black jewelry and black heels, and had my hair down. The material is thick, but not hot, just thick enough to show its quality. Definitely a great dress!

Flattering, comfortable and standout!
This dress is so flattering. The fit and flare shape fits most body types, narrowing the waist and skimming the hips It fit my body perfectly. The neckline detail is adorable and unique. The fabric is thick and comfortable and it adds to the flattering nature of this dress. However, the best part of this dress it the color. I love the bright orange, which seriously stands out in a crowd of white dresses. I would recommend this dress, and I hope to order it again.

Short Short SHORT!!!
The color of this dress is unique and beautiful. I adored the detailing around the neck and the overall style was both flirty and classic. The top of the dress fit wonderfully and it was almost as if it was tailored just for my body. However, I am just shy of 5'8 and this dress barely covered my rear end. I wouldn't even have walked out of the house with this dress on, much less gone to a Catholic wedding ceremony. I was very disappointed that it did not work out, but the RTR customer service was fantastic about overnighting me a backup dress that worked out great. I think this dress would look fantastic on someone who was 5'2, but if you are on the taller side (maybe even anything north of 5'5!) I would strongly urge that you skip this one!

Tight in the Wrong Places
I really wanted to love this dress, and maybe I would have if I had ordered a larger size - but they run small. You know that look when something is too tight and you can see your belly button even when you suck in? Yeah - not so good lol. Oh well!

I wore this dress to my graduation. I loved it and got so many compliments!
It was probably the most comfortable dress i've ever worn. While others were complaining how hot and uncomfortable they were with their dresses and their robes i was more than happy. All night I was being complimented and even days to follow I continued to receive compliments! I wish I could've kept the dress! I would wear it over and over again. It was extremely flattering and comfortable!

Glad I had a back up dress.
The color of this dress is lovely but it is very short, which is a lot coming from someone as petite as I am. Sitting down, a strong wind, bending over -- any of those occurrences would have posed a problem. Also, the material was too heavy, the shoulders were stiff, and it was formfitting in the stomach.

I would give this dress 10+ stars if I could!
So far, my absolute most favorite rental from Rent the Runway! It fit perfectly and ran true to size. The fabric is a little bit thicker than one would think, but it was perfect for a Spring wedding in San Francisco with their chilly evenings. Love, love, love this dress!

Great for photo ops!
Thicker material than I thought it would be, but fit well nonetheless. You could kind of see the outline of the spanx I wore, but this was for the photo part of the Bat Mitzvah and I know they'll photoshop that out. The color was absolutely gorgeous with nude heels.

simple, stylish comfort!
I wore this dress to a wedding in Winnipeg. While it wasn't as warm as I needed it to be (I didn't anticipate the snow in April), it was incredibly comfortable and I was complimented on it all evening! The fabric is thick enough that the dress didn't call for shapewear and it was so great to dance in!

Not flattering on curves.
I had high hopes for this dress, but it just didn't look right. I think it would have been more flattering on someone flat chested with a more athletic build.

Cute dress, fit well, but is too short for tall girls!
This was such a cute dress and was perfect for a spring-time wedding shower! It was very comfortable and fit true to size. However, the length of the dress was way to short for me! I think it would be much better suited to someone not quite as tall as myself. I felt like I was constantly worried about giving someone a peep show whenever I was sitting down, getting in and out of the car, etc. Overall it was a great dress, it just wasn't the right length for my body type.

I wore this dress to my bridal shower and it was perfect.
I ordered the 2 and 4 and went with the 4. Both fit, but the 4 was just a tad longer so I didn't have to worry about it being too short. The fit was great and the color was perfect for my orange-and-ivory-themed wedding! Definitely recommend.
