This dress was super small.
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This dress runs very small. I usually wear a size 4 in dresses, so I ordered a 4 and a 6. Both sizes were very small in the chest and I couldn't zip up the dress. I was unable to wear this dress to the event. I even had a friend try it on and it was VERY small on her as well.

The color was great with my blonde hair and even though I am very petite, it still fell above the knee. I am pretty busty, so the 0 held me me with no need for a bra, but it it may be problematic for girls with less up top :)

Gorgeous color
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
The color was amazing and the shape was super flattering. I sized up to accomodate the bust running small and was glad I did. It was VERY tight. However, that meant that I didn't have to worry about complicated bust support under the dress.

Didn't wear this because the zipper was tough to close. Fabric is really comfy and color stands out.

Loved dancing in this dress all night!
Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Fits a little smaller than normal size around the waist, but bust was perfect. The skirt part is great - nice and flowy. Very fun on the dance floor. It was a little warm after awhile of dancing, but still worth it.

Loved it! (except the zipper)
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
This dress is a really pretty blue and a fun material that has a lot of movement, so it would be great to dance in. I am generally a 6 on top and an 8 on the bottom, so it just depends on the dress what size fits. In this case, I think the 8 was the right size (that was the only one I had). But BEWARE - you must have another person help you to get the side zipper up! The zipper is this silly, tiny, squat thing (about 4 millimeters long. Seriously.), and since the top of the dress is totally ruched (which always makes zippers harder to get up), it was completely impossible to get the zipper up the bodice by myself. And I live by myself, so I was SOL. Tightness was absolutely not the problem, as I could hold the dress completely closed easily, but I just could not get the zipper to work. As long as I know I'll have another person handy when I'm getting dressed, I'd totally rent this again!

Gorgeous dress!
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress fit perfectly, I absolutely loved it! I ordered an 8, usually wear an 8 on bottom or a 6/8 on top. I was a little worried it might be too short- I am 5' 10" in heels- but the length was just fine. It was fitted thru the smallest part of my waist, very flattering. The zipper was tricky, I had to have my husband help me with it- but once it was on, no problems. I wore a convertible bra with one shoulder strap (clear), but could have gone without if need be, as the top was tight and the material thick enough. This shade of blue would be flattering on anyone. Highly recommend- I liked it so much, I may rent in yellow for an upcoming wedding!

Felt gorgeous!
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for my boyfriend's fraternity formal and it was absolutely wonderful. Halston Heritage also makes this dress in a full-length, which I've worn before, so I was prepared for the style and fit of the dress when I rented its shorter incarnation.The fabric is amazingly comfortable and I had no problems with anything becoming uncomfortable. If you're larger chested, the one-shoulder cut might feel a little weird - at least on me, it hit a a little lower on my chest than I would have liked, but I wasn't terribly worried about any possible wardrobe malfunctions. The cut and draping of the dress made it incredibly flattering.

Amazing - I stole the show!
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
This dress was absolutely AMAZING!!! After a bit of a debacle with my original dress choice, this one was overnighted to me, and I have to say, I should've picked this one from the beginning! It was just the right amount of stretch and the skirt was really flirty and fun to spin and dance around in. I got complements ALL night! I wore it with peep-toe black pumps with a feather on the front and some sparkle in the back to match my feather hair piece, and the smokey mirrored bangles and a black clutch (both also from RTR). The whole outfit really came together and the stylist was integral in me picking an awesome dress! This dress definitely runs small (I'm usually a 4 and had to go up a size), so keep that in mind, and the skirt is pretty short. It was fine on me since I'm short but I can see it being a problem on some taller gals out there.

I was unable to wear this dress because it was WAY too small in the bust!
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
This dress was unbelievably beautiful, but I couldn't wear it because it was too tight in the bust, even up one size. It fit perfectly everywhere else. It made me very sad that it didn't fit. I've never had this problem before, and don't even have a large chest, so be wary. My advice would be to go up at least one size or more. Luckily I was able to send the dress back without any problems and received a credit back on my account, so it truly is a risk-free purchase! I'm at least grateful for that.

It was a beautiful dress!
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This was my first time using rent the runway, and I was a little disappointed. Although it was a beautiful dress, I did not even get to wear it to the wedding and had to scramble to find a last minute dress! It runs small, which contrary to what was on the comments did not follow along. It was WAY too small in the bust, and when I called to return the dress they stated that these dress do run small in the dress. I usually wear a size 2 or a 4 and I ordered both. The two fit perfectly in the waist, however I could not zip it up once it got to my chest...the same with the four. Although I did not get to wear the dress, they were very helpful and reimbursed me, with the exception of the shipping cost.

Wore to my sorority's X-mas Semiformal w/ diamond cuff and diamond drop earrings w/ silver MK shoes.
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Fit: Runs true to size. I am fairly busty, and I could not wear a bra with this dress. I am kind of short-waisted, so unfortunately the side zipper bunched up a little bit. This was only really a problem when I was sitting down, but even then it was mostly hidden by the ruching. Pros: Great bold color! Would pair well with any color jewelry. Not heavy, but also doesn't feel like it might fly off of your body if there was a breeze. Feels comfortable, and breathes well also. Would be good any time of year. The skirt fans out when you twirl :) Cons: It might be difficult to pair a necklace with this dress because the one-shoulder cuts across pretty high up on your chest. Again, I'm short-waisted so there was a bit of bunching of the zipper, but it was not a huge problem by any means! Other info: I paired this dress with silver/diamond bracelet and earrings and silver Michael Kors heels, but I think any color metal or stone even would look great with it! Highly recommend this dress.

Beautiful dress, bodice runs very small.
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small

This is a beautiful dress. I wasn't able to wear it because the bodice was too small. The color is awesome and I'm sure on the right person it would be great. I think it would be a great fit on a slightly smaller frame- my rib cage was a little large.

Wish I had time to wear it out!
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The dress was beautiful and the skirt hung very well. I didn't end up wearing it out due to missing my flight and a shortened vacation, but I wish I would have been able to keep it for one more day. Would probably rent it again for a wedding or other nice affair. It was tight in the bust - so beware that there's no give.

This dress fit perfectly! I am 5'3, 130lbs, 36A and the size 4 was perfect! The fabric is really nice and the dress was comfortable all night long! It hit just about my knees and the color was a beautiful cobalt blue. I would definitely wear this dress again.

I rented this dress for a homecoming dance for my 15 year old daughter. This was the back up dress. The size 4 probably would have been a better size, but it wasn't available. The dress was lovely. It wasn't too short or too long. She got many compliments.

This dress is gorgeous. Simple and classic.
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The cut on this dress is so flattering. With the structured bodice and the skirt starting and flaring from the natural waist, I can’t imagine there would be many figures that wouldn’t look good in it. The color is beautiful. It’s this wonderful cobalt blue in person. I think it would work on every skin tone – tan or pale. The fabric just flows and feels very soft. You can tell the second you put it on that it’s a very well made dress. Im 5’10” and it hit about mid-thigh. A very tasteful but still fun length. (My sister held it up to her, she’s 5’4” and it fell just above the knees.) Unfortunately for me, I wasn’t able to wear it because of the shoulder straps Im not sure if it was my height alone, or the fact I have quite defined swimmers shoulders. I just wasn’t able to wear the dress comfortably without it lifting too high into my armpits (which also raised the waist.) I’m an average size chest (small C) and the dress set very well there, however I would definitely recommend those with large busts size up because there isn’t much room to accommodate a bigger chest – with the structure of the dress and the fabric, there really isn’t anywhere to go. On the plus side, a strapless or one shoulder bra would work perfectly with it. Because of the color, it wouldn’t have needed much. I was planning on wearing a pair of vintage chandelier earrings I inherited from my grandma… and maybe cocktail ring or bracelet.
