Gorgeous dress, easy to wear!
Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Following other reviews, I ordered the 2R. The dress has some stretch and the chiffon overlay is flattering. I needed 4" heels to walk comfortably and there was still a little train. The slit was about mid-thigh. I felt like a star walking around the dinner with the dress flowing behind me! Tons of compliments, would definitely recommend!

Dress was perfect for this formal event. But was great that it also had sex appeal as well with the leg. side do for the hair also worked well. Needed 1 size up to add the length.

So classy and beautiful
Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size

The dress was a fun, beautiful and young dress. It was perfect for the black tie wedding I attended. I received a ton of compliments. The only complaint I have is the dress was a little long on my 5'4 frame. Other then the length I felt beautiful.

After reading the reviews, I ordered the 4 & 2 (I'm between a 4/6) glad I ordered a smaller size, the dress ran large. It was an amazing dress & the fit of the 2L was perfect.

This dress was simple, yet elegant and so comfy!
Size worn: 14L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I had read all the reviews but was nervous because most of the reviews were not for my size and I was sure that this dress just wasn't going to fit. But it did! If you wear a 12 in GAP or Old Navy jeans and have a larger chest size, this dress will fit you! I usually have to worry about "side boob" hanging out when wearing one shoulder dresses, but did not have a problem at all in this dress. Even with lots of movement, the dress stayed in place. Phew! I did not wear spanx and was still secure throughout the night that my stomach wasn't puffy b/c the dress wasn't tight around the waist/hips. I am 5'7 and had on 3 inch heels and the 14L was still longer than I'd like but I doubt I could go 14R. Just a heads up, when you are standing around and it's crowded, someone could easily be standing on the train so be aware of that before you walk off! Loved the dress and will definitely rent it again.

Beautiful dress and super easy process
Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
My first RTR experience and it was perfect. The reviews are spot on, this dress runs big and is super long. I normally wear a 6 and sometimes an8 in formal attire. I have very broad shoulders so the top fit perfectly on me, I figured that would be the case given how big everyone else it would be. I had to get the 4L because the 4R was out it stock and finally just starting holding it on my arm at the end of the night because it was constantly getting stepped on. I am 5'6" with at least 3 inch heels on, the front was okay but the back and train were too long. Overall it was beautiful, I loved the fit, comfort and elegance of the dress. Highly recommended!

Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: True to Size

It is a tad long (I am 5'*' and wore 3" heels, plus it has a (gorgeous) train - so dancing became a bit of an issue. However, the fabric is simply stunning, flows beautifully and the fit is very flattering.

I loved wearing this dress. I felt sophisticated and comfortable.
Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
It did run big as the reviews note, so instead of wearing a 6, I wore the 4L. It was long, but was supposed to be and I just had to make sure my date stopped stepping on the train ;-). The one thing which maybe because I am so self conscious... I felt that my stomach was sticking out a bit ( the material is forgiving, but there is not much structure in the waist so I felt like you can see my stomach, but it was not a deal breaker. This is a great gown for a black tie event. Adding a big necklace, I also think helped style it more since it is simple, but elegant!

The dress was perfect -- very flattering fit and the slit made it sexy but in a classy way.
Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I tried on an 8L at the NYC showroom but my stylist suggested getting the 6L as a back-up as she thought it looked a little big. I thought it fit fine, but when I got both the 6L and the 8L I agreed that the 6L looked more flattering. I am usually a size 8 and generally have to go up to a 10 if I need a different size -- I never wear 6's -- so I would say this dress runs small. I think it's because the fabric is quite stretchy.

Elegant yet sexy dress!!!
Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this dress for a work event and received tons of compliments. It was comfortable and elegant. I ended up wearing the size 2 because the larger size was too big in the bust. My only complaint is that it was a bit too long in the back. I wore 4 inch heels and was stepping on the train most of the night.

I wore this to a black tie affair. Bust part was a little big but it didn't matter because the netting overlay covered things nicely and was so flattering. The slit was fantastic - just sexy enough to be fun but not overly high. Length was perfect with 3 inch heels. I felt very comfortable and confident! Thank you for such a painless process!!!!!

Very Classy & A Tad Bit Risque!
Size worn: 10R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I went on my Senior prom and wore this dress. The model makes the dress look like it's satin or some stiffer fabric. It turns out the dress is jersey-knit and is a tad bit under whelming. The dress really does run large!! I swore I wore a size 12, I ended up ordering the 10 & the 12. Even the 10 was too big, I wish I would've ordered the 8. I did receive a lot of compliments. I'm happy with the choice.

I ordered a 4L and it was perfect. I have a big chest and am always worried about things being too small up top and too big at the waist, but this dress was a perfect fit. I'm 5'6 and wore 3" heels, the 4L was the perfect lengeth.

Dress is sexy with the split. Overall fit was good, but too long.
Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
Dress was too large in the bust area and really long, even with 3" heals, 4" would have been better. The look was still stunning, but better for someone taller and bustier. Did not end up being able to wear to the social, but this was the back up dress, so all was good.

The fit in the bust is very large, but the jersey material stretches enough that you can wear a smaller size to compensate. I am 5'5 and wore 3 inch heels and the dress was the perfect length.

Too baggy, not flattering
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
Even with 4L, it was too baggy at the chest, and not flattering at the waist and hip either. Slit looks nice on the model, but in real life when standing still this just looks like a plain black dress with few details to make it attractive. Perhaps an even smaller size would have worked? Would not rent again... Good thing this was the back up dress.

Not my favorite...
Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
As others have pointed out, this runs long. Even w/ 3+ inch heels, it was dragging the ground. I ended up going with my back-up dress, as this just didn't wow me once I put it on. Also, the one I received was really stretched out in the chest area, so I'm not sure it would've stayed up all night. The dress was comfortable, but just didn't have that punch for me.

I got so many compliments and could see the look of amazement on people's faces !
Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
It Fits a tiny bit large, because I normally wear a size 2 but wore the size 0. This may be because the fabric was strechy, which takes me to my second point. In the picture, the dress looks like it has some volume and hold to it from the waist down, but in person it's pretty flat; hence the 4 stars. Now the top is actually prettier in person, and if you are looking for a bit of a wow factor, know that you will get it from the detail on the top instead of the volume on the bottom. It was also really long, I am 5.2" and wore 5" heels and it was still way too long, so I had to use hemming tape to fix this. If you are short, I would definitely recommend investing in some hemming tape (they offer it on rtr) and getting it two days before your event, cuz it needs fixing. But overall, it was a great dress and I really did get a bunch of compliments on it, and felt amazing. I also want to say that the service is great and they make everything so easy. If you are hesitant about renting, know that you are in good hands :).

Didn't wear it!
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was my original choice for a formal event. However, after getting a call from Rent The Runway, I learned that it was returned to them "damaged beyond repair" so I ended up selecting a different dress. However, I DID get one of this one sent to me, in a size 12. It actually had great stretch to it, and usually wear size 14 so I was pleased that I could fit it pretty well. I just ended up going with my second selection, but this was still lovely on. I would suggest that this be worn at an outside, day/afternoon event. Or at least at a venue that's lit very well. I felt like the darkness at the formal event would have left the sheer panel detail uneasily detected. And that's part of the charm of this dress.

Very pretty dress but runs BIG. I normally wear a 4 and ordered the 4L but it was very big in the chest. There was a lot of extra material and I would have been better off with the 2L but the backup size was not available.

The dress fit perfectly. I expected it to be long, but it wasn't so long that it impeded me having a great time. Once I went into my flats, it was stepped on a few times. I also ordered the 12, as I sometimes need the bigger dress for my bust, but I got into the 10 with no problem! I received many compliments, so, thank you, RTR!!!

super big in the chest
Size worn: 10R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I have a large chest (30G) but this dress was HUGE up top. I had to safety pin it to keep it up (my other two dresses being unwearable, I was stuck) - it just seemed the top was way out of proportion to the rest of the dress. I might have been able to wear one size down, but honestly the dress wasn't that big elsewhere. Not sure if its stretched out from other wearings. It did not have any structure up top - boning or whatnot. It was very pretty and a nice length. I wore heels but didn't have to put on anything too tall.

The long was just long enough with my 4 in heels, and the slit up the front was sexy but classy, not trashy. Fit well around my wide hips, but even the two was too big around my waist and chest- I had to safety pin! Overall a very nice dress. I will rent from this company again!
