I wore this dress on my birthday and got lots of compliments! The color is absolutely beautiful! I ordered sizes 6 and 8 but wish I had the 4, size 6 was a little big on me. The shirred side is a great way to hide some imperfections for those of us not blessed with perfect abs! Very comfortable dress. Loved it and definitely recommend!

Electric color and shiny fabric make this dress stand out! I usually run between a 6 and 8 and the size 6 was a little too big for me - order down! The fabric is stretchy, but the shearing hides everything.

This dress is beautiful but not meant for short girls! I ordered the 2 and the 0 and was swimming in the 0. The bigger problem however was how long the dress was. With only one shoulder, the chest area sat way too low and the skirt was almost below my knees. The color is amazing as is the fabric. But sadly its for tall girls only.

Beautiful dress. An eye catcher! I am normally an 8 in designers like DVF, BCBG. I ordered a 6 and 8 in ths dress. The 6 was best as the 8 was a little loose. Great dress to dance in. I would recommend for small, medium or full busts. Great if you are tall as well.

Darker purple in person. I have to say that this fit perfectly and is so comfortable! It runs pretty large, I ordered a 0 and a 4 and either would have worked out. Very flattering!

i normally wear a 4, so i ordered a 2 and 4. would have done better with a 0. 2 was too large, so i wasn't able to wear it. it's a nice rich color though, and the fabric seems forgiving.

Absolutely loved this dress. Great color, nice fabric, and very flattering. Like others said, it did run a little large - I ordered a size 4 and size 6, and I probably could have worn a 2. Very much enjoyed wearing it for a night out on the town.

Definitely agree with the other posters that the dress runs somewhat large. I am 5'5 and 120 lb, usually a 2 and wore this one in a 0. The dress looked beautiful. I imagine that it would hide a bit of pudge on the belly. However, for those with a flat stomach, I feel like the bunching of the fabric combined with the fact that even the 0 was a little big actually made my stomach look a little bigger than it actually is. Still, a lovely dress and I was happy to wear it!

I was disappointed with this dress. I put on the size zero and it was big on me! To add to it, the dress was long and the fabric felt cheap. It had the potential to look great on me though but I wasn't in love with it as I was when I ordered it. On the Bright side! My sister in law wore it, she is taller then me.. and although it still was big on her she looked great in it.

I was disappointed with this dress. It's entirely too large. I order sizes 4 and 6 and I usually can fit into either size. I tried on the 4, which almost came to my knee. The dress was not as form fitting as I would have liked. I tried playing around with it to make it work, but it was not flattering on me. Also, the fabric of this dress is very cheap looking. It's definitely not worth $50.. maybe $20 if that. If you order this dress, order 2 sizes down.

I was not very pleased with this rental. I rented it for prom, but when I tried it on it was too sheer (almost impossible to wear any underwear with!) and ruched in all the wrong places. I am not heavy at all but the dress made me look like I put on weight and was very unflattering. The color was nice, but I would ultimately not recommend this dress.

The color was amazing on this dress. you'll definitely stand out. Much brighter than in the picture.
I not recommend for someone who is petite. This dress went done to my knees and did not look anything like it does on the model. It was much more conservative than what I was expecting. I was also not prepared for how sheer the dress was. Finding the right bra was a problem. I did however love the color of this dress.

I rented this dress as a second choice for a wedding. I ended up not wearing this dress. The dress runs large...I am normally a 4 or a 6 and the 4 was big on me. I would say this dress is more of a club/going out dress and the material is not as high quality as I would have thought it to be for a dress that is normally $300. But the color is absolutely gorgeous + beside being a little big, the dress looks great on !

The color was outstanding, the pictures really don't do it justice. This dress is an instant stunner
This was my first experience with RTR and it was fabulous! Everything was on time and perfectly packaged. Plus, since it was for NYE 2012, they gave a few add-ons like a party hat, sample perfume and double-sided fashion tape, which was a very nice, cute touch! The only thing I will say is that the dress was larger than it appears on the model. When renting, I would recommend keeping in mind that most designer dresses are CUSTOM made for the buyer. So it's not going to look identical for you, as it does for the model. I was shocked I was more comfortable in the size 0 instead of the 2, but it just was slinkier and less fitted than it appears in the picture. It was still a gorgeous dress; but I'd also recommend to anyone renting, to go with a dress cut and fit that is typically flattering for you/that you've worn before, so you're not trying something brand-new and then surprised if it doesn't look the way you thought it might ... Essentially, I loved my experience, just wish the dress could've been a bit more fitted on me and have less of the bunching ripples on the side (like it appears in the pic) but that would only be accomplished if I had it tailored. Will definitely rent again!

too shear
I did not end up wearing this dress, thankfully I ordered another dress as well. Although it was a great color and fit, I thought the fabric was way too thin. The dress was completely see-through. It would have been perfect for my sorority formal except for the material!

Loved this
so literally 2 days before my sorority formal I was FREAKING OUT because I still couldn't find a dress to match the bow tie my date already bought. So I figured I'd order this and I was pleasantly surprised at how perfect it was. I'm 5'2" and around 130 lbs and the dress was a little long so I pinned it, but other than that it was so comfortable and absolutely perfect. I got so many compliments!!! And it was so convenient, I'm so lazy when it comes to trying stuff on. Luckily you can order two sizes, I ended up going with the smaller one. I'll be buying dresses from here for the rest of my formals and my boyfriends formals. :]

Classy Dress
This dress was perfect for a summer wedding. It was classy with a hint of sex appeal. The cinch in waistline is perfect to hide any waistline imperfection you may have. The dress did run a bit big on me, so I would recommend to go a size lower. Enjoy :-)

Beautiful dress but too long
This dress is beautiful but ran long on me and was too big. I would suggest sizing down if you want a more fitted look, especially around the hip and leg area. Such a great comfortable feel to the dress I wish I could have worn it!
LindsaySeptember 11, 2012
You wore a 6 and it was too big? Our stats are similar - but I haven't worn a 4 since middle school, I'm an 8 almost always! Let me know if you can :-)
RTRSeptember 12, 2012
Hi Lindsay! This dress runs true to size, but if anything we suggest going a size down. If you are almost always an 8, I would suggest ordering a size 6!

My friends had been helping me search for a dress for weeks with no success. There was unanimous agreement that I had found the perfect dress when they saw the pictures. Thank you RTR!
As other reviewers had said the dress ran big but unfortunately the 2 wasn't available when I ordered. However, although the 4 was a little big it was really perfect for a wedding where I wouldn't have wanted something too tight. The fashion tape that RTR included was perfect to make sure the dress didn't slip and show my bra under the arm. The fabric is thin so make sure you have that in mind when you think about what you are going to wear under it. Great color! Looks more purple in person but a deep blue in pictures.
RTR CustomerApril 7, 2013
This dress beautiful. Based on reviews the material seems thin. What would you recommend to wear underneath? I am 5'2 118lb 34D.
KatieApril 9, 2013
You will definitely want to have a few options for things to try on underneath. I had to use the double sided tape to keep the dress from showing my bra. It took me a few thong options to find something that would lie smoothly under the dress. A spanx style slip would have worked too but would make the dress less comfortable. The dress is gorgeous though - my favorite rental so far.

Color and slinky fit
It was a little bit longer than i expected, but I LOVED the color of it. It is a slinky dress that isn't the most forgiving but the ruching on the side made up for that. I just wish they had it in a double 0 because it still was a little large, it runs VERY large. Overall I think I would rent it again I just think its a very particular person who would like this dress

I love the entire process of how RTR works :)
I rented the 0 and the 4 [since the 2 was unavailable], the dress itself is pretty loose. The 4 was massive and the 0 was a little bigger than I'd expect it to be. The material was really light and thin…so take care of which underwear you wear under it! Otherwise, it was super comfortable and it was great for a late summer afternoon.

It wasn't really memorable at all....
This dress was a lot longer than I wanted. I ended up pinning the dress up! It also runs big, I normally wear a 6 and ended up wearing the 4.

The fabric is super stretchy, clingy, and thin. Wore no show underwear and could still see it. I was shocked that the size 0 was almost too big.

Loved the style & color!
The dress was big (or worn)...I rented a 6 and 8, and the 6 was still not quite snug enough (you could tell a little bit around arms and legs), but it was a very pretty color and style of dress. The fabric was very thin- dance costume material- so had to wear something underneath.

Nota fan.
This was the first dress from rent the runway that I thought looked terrible on... the rouching did not fall right, it fit very weird, and the material felt cheap- I have found that other rent the runway dresses normally feel like a classier/nicer material. Customer service was amazing though and took the dress back right away.

Fun cocktail dress!
This dress did run large. I had read previous reviews and was glad that I ordered a size down. It was slightly longer than I anticipated--it hit a little below mid-thigh, but was form-fitting and comfortable. I really liked the saturated purple color.

The material was not as flattering as I thought it might be. The ruching is great but the material is super thin and unlined so unless you have a flawless booty it is a little too revealing. I would rent a size smaller than usual.

I LOVE THIS DRESS! I wore it to two weddings and got SO many compliments. It is very light and unconstricting. This dress is so fun and forgiving - very stretchy! It definitely runs big, as I ordered a 2 and 4 and even the 2 was big on me, and I weigh 125. I wore sparkly purple drop earrings and taupe shoes, but silver would also have looked good.

runs large
Gorgeous dress and a beautiful deep purple. The dress run large, I usually wear a size 0/2 and was way to big. I think I could have gotten away with it because it is tight and spandex material. However I imagined that dancing all night would leave it saggy and droopy and I didnt want to deal with that. I ended up returning it without wearing it. I also thought it looked kinda plain once I tried it on. The color is fabulous, but it definitely needed accessories and a great pair of heels.

LOVE!
I loved this dress, the color was awesome, and I got so many compliments. It was long enough and classy to wear to a wedding but it was form fitting in the right places and I loved the one shoulder. The material of the dress is thin and clingy but very soft and comfortable and the bunches are in all of the right spots so everything looks smooth/no lines, etc.. I ordered the 2 and the 4, hoping that the 4 would fit. I planned on ordering the 4 and 6 but they didn't have size 6 available. I assumed the 2 would be way too small since I usually wear a size 6 but I ordered it anyway since the second dress is free. The 4 fit great and I planned on wearing it, but I decided to try the 2 on just for fun and it actually fit even better. I am so glad I ordered this dress, and I love all of the pictures from that night, even though the color was even better in person.

It runs a tad small. The dress bunched up on her a couple times going up and down stage. It works well with many body types!

GREAT DRESS!!
Rented this for a 15th birthday party, formal affair like a wedding.The size 4 looked way too tight so I didn't even bother trying it on. The 6 fit just right, not too tight and not too loose. It stayed form fitting and I just loved the color! I will definitely rent this again and I'm going to look for a dress like this to buy! Loved it!
