A really fun dress and I would have loved to wear it but it was way too short.

I read the reviews that the dress was too short, but a size 0 on me hit mid-thigh, definitely not a minidress. It's also not that tight on. Still cute though, would probably look better on someone a little taller.

I loved this dress - finally something that fits and looks hot if you are a thin person! The velvet is not slimming, but I was ok with that.

This dress fit horrible in both sizes I ordered. It was nothing like I expected. Its not fitted a the bottom, it just has this loose flap at the back. Its really pretty and its a shame that it's ill fitting. I had nothing to wear for my birthday.

Great dress! I thought the python print may be a tad flashy but it was more subtle. I have a full bust and a size 4, my normal size, fit great with a strapless bra. The length hit me below the mid thigh (I have short legs though). Hugs curves.. could probably fit most body types!

This dress looks beautiful on the hanger but didn't wear well. Another reviewer mentioned how the sequins hurt under the arms after wearing it - which is true. It is not tight fitting. It is a very classic dress.

This dress is stunning on. My 14 year old daughter wore it to her high school homecoming and had awesome feedback. She looked stunning! The dress is short, but I didn't feel it was too short. Definately one to rent!

Great customer service
I thought the dress was beautiful, and I got amazing compliments, however it gave me a rash under my arm from the zipper hook, and the sequence.

I received SO MANY compliments on this dress and the 0R fit perfectly. I read that it was too short but it hit mid-thigh for me and the sequins did not bother my arms at all. Great dress!

This dress was a dream to wear! Perfect for the party, so comfortable to dance in, and overall fit was fabulous!
Loved this dress! Wore to my sister's bachelorette party and received many compliments! I wanted to keep it, so when it goes on sale, I may buy it! The material is so soft, and it's very comfortable to wear. I thought it would be so tight that I may need to go up in size, but that was not the case. I absolutely love this dress!

I think this dress ran true to size. It was very short. I'm way larger on top than the rest of my body and the dress just didn't fit properly.

I really enjoyed this dress. However, after you put it on you cant bend over very well because you might show your underwear or other things. Also it is really itchy under your arm and around the neck area. BUT! It was cute and fit well! Great for homecoming! :)

Looking awesome
Well, the dress is more awesome in person that on the site. The detail is beautiful and its SUPER COMFORTABLE. I love that its not super tight at the bottom, but not "bell shaped" either. Just an awesome dress I wish I could wear again and again. Thanks so much..the pleasure was all mine! (and my husbands :)

Being out in Vegas w friends.
This was a nice little dress, but it did bunch up in the back a little and did not lay completely flat. I wouldn't wear it again but it worked for an evening out in Vegas.

Pretty
I rented this dress for a formal, and I got a few compliments. It is definitely a very pretty dress that doesn't look too tight or too young for anyone. Pros: Beautiful material, and very soft. It was the perfect length for someone of my height. It fell mid-thigh. Cons: I wore the size 0, however the dress was still loose on me, and I am by no means "thin" or "skinny" -- I am normal sized for someone of my height. It was loose right below the bust, and because the dress is looks form fitting, it made me look like I had some extra inches between my bust and stomach. Also, the bottom of the dress is not tight at all. It flairs out a little bit.

Sexy and fun!
Had fun wearing this dress to a holiday cocktail party over the weekend. The only downside is the sequins. They are a gorgeous detail, but I had scratches on my shoulder and bra line where they touched my skin. Not a comfortable dress, but enjoyed it anyway! I'm short so it wasn't quite as "mini" as on the model. Very flattering fit, however!

Fun for a date night
I am usually a size 4, but I was really glad I got a 2 as a back up size. From the photo, I expected the dress to be shorter and tighter than it was - even when I wore the 2! I definitely couldn't have sized down further, because the shoulder fit perfectly in the 2, but the bottom of the dress seemed to have a very slight flare to it rather than hugging the hips. That's probably a plus on most occasions, and it still turned out to be a hot date night dress, but I was a bit misled from looking at the photo. Ended up really enjoying the dress for the evening though - would recommend to others.

perfect for new years - got lots of compliments from friends & family!
Rented this for New Years Eve out in Boston with my girl friends. I have been losing weight but in general have worn a L or 12 in any dresses I have rented but got the 10 as a back up and glad I did - the 12 fit but was loose and did nothing for my figure. The 10 was a little shorter but fit like a glove so I actually went with the smaller size. Beware if you are tall and have long legs this dress is DEFINITELY short!

Great dress but...
This was a great dress and sexy but I agree with the other reviews that the zipper came up too high under your arm pit and was very uncomfortable. I was unable to wear the dress except for a picture. Too bad they can't do something about that.

Super comfortable dress!
Wore this dress in Vegas for a girls night out. I expected it to be a bit shorter. I was a little tight in the sleeve and the sequins were itchy under the armpit but overall super comfortable.

This dress is really great. It was simple but caught the light really well. There's a shoulder pad there, I didn't really notice it before. Very classy

Good for a night out.
I am short and this dress was short on me. Very flattering and the fabric is very forgiving as it is stretchy. I am usually between a 4 and a 6 and the 4 worked for me. The fabric is not as shiny as it appears in the picture and the dress was a bit work when I received it. I didn't wear it because it was my backup, but definitely a safe bet for a night out.

Classy dress worn for a winter party
I rented this dress for a Russian birthday party in February. I wore it with black patent heels and black tights. The fit was absolutely perfect for an hourglass-shaped girl like me.

Fit well. Short enough on a petite girl which is what I wanted.
Loved the one shoulder and it had a little shoulder pad which made it look even better. Great for a Christmas party. I loved this dress. This was my first of many rentals from rent the runway! Love rent the runway!!!!

Fun and Flirty!
Loved the look of the dress. A bit disappointed the bottom was more "A line" than fitted (in other words, this is not a skin hugging dress). Also disappointed with the fabric which was very thin and flimsy (like wearing a halloween costume); may want to think about that in terms of weather/temperature. Overall though, the dress was very fun and flirty.

AMAZING DRESS
I rented this for the post-party after a formal ball, and it was AMAZING... It fit perfect, I feel like it would fit any body type... a very easy to wear dress. The snake pattern of the sequins is just enough. I'm not big on crazy patterns or animal print, and it was a good step out of my comfort zone without being too crazy. It also makes the dress more appropriate if you're looking to dress it up for a more formal occasion. The shoulder has a pretty sizable shoulder pad - but frankly, it gives that special touch, that "wow" that makes this dress a bit more fashionable than every other "vanilla" one-shoulder mini. The only downfall I can imagine is how TERRIBLY raw the underside of your arm is after rubbing against the armhole (its only on the one side)... but as a stylist once told me "fashion is pain darling"... and this dress is worth it!

Great, sexy dress.
I loved this dress. It was a bit short, but I felt comfortable it in an got tons of compliments. I have a pretty big bust and this minimized it, which it was I usually look for in a dress.

Great dress, easy to wear. Wore it for New Year's and it was perfect! Only downside is that the sequins rubbed the inside of my arms slightly. Other than that, fabulous dress!

Sexy yet respectful lbd.
This dress was comfortable and came across the same in person as the photos online. I felt it ran true to size for the most part; the hip area may have run slightly large. I thought this dress was perfect for my hourglass figure; the stretch in the material allowed the waist to be fitted and accomodated my bust as well. Sometimes when a dress has little to no give I need to move up to a four to fit my bust leaving the waist and hip area loose; not the case with this dress! I received many compliments and felt sexy but also comfortable to be around the conservative members of my family in this dress. I left off one star because the dress was itchy around the upper arm/shoulder and I wished the covered shoulder had a slightly narrower cut to show some shoulder and upper arm. All in all a great dress that I would rent again.

Great dress for a night on the town!
I ordered this for NYE, and it was perfect for that. I always worry about ordering dresses because I am 5'6 athletic build, but I have hips & a chest. This dress was great because you didn't have to worry about cleavage spillage, or pulling your dress up all night, and the fit was really slimming. However, this dress is quite short. I wouldn't have been able to wear it without dark tights, because you actually cannot bend over at all. My only real complaint was that the arm hole was really tight and uncomfortable, so the sequins rubbed into the back of your arm. I'd grab some bandaids or moleskin for the night ahead of time.
