Good dress for many body types
This dress works for many body types. I have a bit of a belly and it was very flattering. Fitted in the top to a high waist with the bottom of the dress belling out and has pockets. The front and back photos of the model do not show how much the dress bells out. The rich purple fabric appears as though is is quilted although it is the print in the fabric making it a better choice for cooler weather. You can wear a regular bra with this.

Great, trendy dress for a wonderful night!
I rented this for a wedding where I knew the guests would be well dressed and oozing with style and class. I felt so confident and comfortable and received compliments left and right the entire night. The dress was great for dancing since it flares out below the waist line. I did wear a minimizing undershirt underneath and I would suggest the same for other women who have a full bust. I had such a great first experience with RTR and I can't wait for the next occasion to use them again!

Cute Enough
I received this dress as part of a Fit Pack. The dress is adorable, but the size they sent was big on me. Thus, I looked a little like I was playing dress up. I wouldn't personally rent this, but I think in the right size, on the right girl, this is a classy cute number.

Hi, In a few of the photos of this Halson Heritage dress, the seams seem to be bunching, as if it needed to be better sewn and ironed. Did it seem to be bunching at the sticking when you saw it?

Complimented all day long!
I wore this dress for a job interview and a long day, first with heels and a blazer, then boots and a suede jacket. I loved it. It even has pockets! Beautiful classy, great color.

Hi- You said you usually wear a 6 but got a 10. Does this dress run small?
Anna LiseOctober 11, 2013
I wouldn't say it runs small--I'm really broad shouldered, so I was really concerned about the sleeve cutting me in a weird place. I also am a little heavier than usual, so I wanted to size up. Lastly since it was for a job interview, I didn't want it to be remotely tight, and the 8 wasn't available. So 10 was perfect. I would say it was probably a little loose, but mostly I was worried about how it would fit me in the shoulders.

Even more beautiful on!
I wore this to a fundraiser and I chose to wear the larger size because my bust is on the larger size. The fit was perfect and the dress is incredibly comfortable. The fabric was incredible. I highly recommend this dress and will most likely rent it again.

Comfortable, structured, contemporary dress!
My husband received an award at an architecture convention, so I wanted something a little funky and unique for the banquet. This dress definitely fit the bill. I ordered the 2 and 4 and, while both fit well, I opted for the 2 due to fit in the bust. The skirt bells out, but isn't over the top. That along with the sleeves made it have a bit of a Judy Jetson/futuristic feel which my husband thought was great. I got tons of compliments on both the dress and necklace (Badgley Mischka) all night. To top it off, it was an extremely comfortable outfit, especially since you can wear a regular bra with it. My only complaint is that the pockets in the front poked out a bit when I sat down and looked a little strange, but it wasn't anything too distracting.

Great color
I love this dress and wish it worked out for me. I rented the size 2 but it was too big. I suggest ordering 1-2 sizes down if you have a similar body type. The length was a little long but with a great heel I could've pulled it off.

Wasn't tailored enough
I rented for my brother's wedding, ordered 4 and 6....the 4 was better, but around the waste it was just too loose and not very tailored. the material i was not that crazy about either. it's cute, but not formal beautiful. it would be best for a semi casual event, not for a wedding or black tie. i didn't wear it to the wedding but it was just ok.

Not great for busty girls
This gress came in my fit pack or else I probably wouldnt have rented it. I was not a fan. The material was kinda weird- the purple turned black and greyish depending on where you shifted (kind of like those cars that change colors) It looked weird on my chest... I just had a baby and am far more busty than usual. This dress was far too Jane Jetson for my taste

Absolutely gorgeous. The color is actually an extremely rich purple, even though the camera flash makes it seem almost blue. Absolutely flattering!

Figure flattering elegance
This dress was fabulous! It was so flattering and elegant - perfect for a black tie optional wedding. I added accessories from Charming Charlie and was set for the night. I did go one size up based on reviews and needed it for my bust. First time in awhile I haven't worn my Spanx tummy tucker and was happy to be breathing easy but still feel great! One tiny drawback is that the boning structure of the dress did rub little raw spots on my back. Nothing awful but sensitive skin may fare worse. If I'd worn my spanx there would have been no issue.

Best Fall dress for an afternoon into evening wedding!
This dress fit my curvy short frame perfectly. The purple jewel tone looked amazing and I got a ton of compliments on not wearing a little black dress. My friend borrowed my back-up dress so everyone was thrilled.

Elegant and slightly edgy, fun dress!
Love that this dress had some structure to it - along the entire torso area, it fits well, with nice seams going up and down the dress. There's a slight pouf to the bottom which makes it more fun and girly. Very versatile dress - could be worn for dinner, wedding, or fun cocktail party as an alternative to the standard LBD. One thing I would say - it smooshed my boobs a little and I'm only an A/B cup. May be tight for anyone with larger bust.

This dress was perfect for an early November wedding!
The fabric was the perfect weight for a chilly fall wedding and the color was beautiful. It is a very vibrant purple in person and I loved the detail on the shoulders. I paired it with come black stockings and heeled booties and it was great! I rented a 0 & 2 and ended up wearing the 0. There was still a little bit of room, but it wasn't too big. It was nice wiggle room to eat tons of food at the reception! I got tons of compliments all night and everyone loved the dress :) So sad to send it back!!

Beautiful!
This dress is a beautiful deep purple. I was afraid that the way the shoulders were cut on the dress that it would make me appear broader, but I was completely wrong. In fact, the black on the shoulders gave a slimming effect. The dress does have pockets on the front seems. It's a little bit of a weird placement of pockets, but they are handy to have. I normally wear a size 12 in dresses, and I was able to wear a size 10 in this dress. I am 5'5", and the size 10 fell to my knees.

Everyone commented on how beautiful this dress was!
I ordered a 6 and asked RTR staff for advice on the backup size: they recommended a 4. I'm so glad they did! The 6 fit, but loosely enough that I could have used a belt--but the belt bunched up the fabric at the waist. The 4 was a little but snug across the bust, but otherwise fit like a glove. The fabric is lovely--textured almost like quilting--although the hem is very thick, which made it stiff, causing it not to hang in an easy circle. But it wasn't a big deal! And it looked great. I also loved the little slit pockets in the front.

Loved this dress! The color really stood out in a sea of black dresses!
This dress is beautiful! The color is even more amazing in person. It definitely runs a bit large. I am usually a 4 or 6 in dresses and the 4 was just the tiniest bit big. The fabric of the dress is thicker (perfect for fall or winter events) so it actually looks better the snugger it is.

I liked this dress for many reasons; it was a very flattering cut and a step out of my LBD comfort zone. I would definitely wear this dress again!

I got great compliments on the color!
Fit great, I was actually able to wear a size smaller than normal. The only "complaint" (and it wasn't that big of a deal) was toward the end of the night, I start to get a red irritation near my armpit from the material rubbing. Again, it wasn't painful enough to annoy me, but I could see it getting brighter throughout the night.

Good for a fall evening wedding but not spectacular
This runs big, especially if you aren't large on top. I ordered the 6 and the 4. The 6 was miles too big and the 4 was definitely baggy. I cinched the waist with a skinny black belt and that helped some, but I definitely needed a size 2! My boyfriend thought it looked fine though. The material is fairly thick, which is nice when it's a bit chilly out.

I love this dress! It was just like I imagined, and I loved the pockets!
The fit was just right, but possible a little loose in the bust area. Other than that, the color was just as the picture and it looked great!

Love this dress! Rich color, full knee length skirt, classic!
Loved this dress, the material, the rich purple color, the full skirt...I am a tall girl, and it was still just slightly above the knee for me. Love the subtle design at the bottom. The fit was just a SMIDGE large in the middle, but I much prefer that over too small, so I was fine with it. Perfect as a wedding guest dress!

Great color, forgettable dress
The detail on the bottom of the dress where the purple cascades into black is great, but it's just not enough to make up for the boxy dress. I had hoped to wear it, but when I donned the dress I felt more like an ugly bridesmaid than a princess.

Classy Comfy Chic Winter Dress
Very comfortable and classy dress, perfect for my firm's holiday party! The detailing on the dress is great. So much more intricate than I expected from the picture. The black is embroidered onto the thick purple, almost quilt-like fabric. The purple is a lovely royal shade. The chevron pattern within the purple was a nice added touch. I got both the 10 and the 12, and they both fit. I am generally a 12. I went with the 12 because it was a little looser and more comfortable, but both looked great on. Very flattering.

Nice dress, I didn't love it.
This dress fit great but I just personally didn't love it. I didn't find it super flattering and it bunched up around my middle when I sat down. I found the pockets to be in a really bad spot if you actually wanted to put anything in them. It's well made and I wish they had my extra size because I think the 12 may have fit better.

Shiny and Fun.
The purple is really bright. I wore this to a rehearsal dinner in NYC and out afterwards. It was fun and mainly comfortable flattering. Lots of fabric was a bit heavy and pulled a bit in the neckline. Still had a great fun time wearing it. Got compliments.

Beautiful dress that makes you stand out in a sea of black
I wore this to my husbands corporate holiday party and I loved it. One of my girlfriends said she loved that I was wearing a color that wasn't too bright but stood out. It's a very structured dress and beautiful fabric. I usually wear a 4 because of my chest but I definitely should have gotten a 2 as my back-up, my husband said it was a little big on me. The dress hit me right above me knee but for an office part it was appropriate.

Classic dress, great alternative to the little black dress!
This was my back up dress and my first experience with Rent the Runway. I loved this dress, but could only pick one! Fit perfectly! Classic beauty. I didn't get to wear it because I went with my first choice, but I will rent it again for another event!

Beautiful color, bust runs small
I read the reviews and ordered a 6 and an 8 for a back-up. i ended up wearing the 6 with a minimizer bra. Even with that it tight across the bust line but not uncomfortable. The 8 was too big all over.

Will try to rent this again!
Rented 8 & 10 but ended up wearing my back-up rental. Tough decision!! This dress is heavy and quilty soft on top. I could wear both sizes, although the girls were a bit compressed in the 8. My husband thought the shoulder detail looked a bit space cadet-y, but I liked it. Hope to rent (and wear) it at some future date

Beautiful Dress!
I loved this dress! I wore it to a winter wedding and received compliments all night long. The deep purple color is beautiful, but a little overwhelming, so I wore a black belt and a RTR bib necklace to break it up a bit. The fabric is thick and textured, which was great for a winter wedding. I rented a 12 and 14, but the 14 fit better in the bust and waist. I would definitely recommend it and would love to wear it again!
