I got so many compliments on this dress, it's very flattering and classy. Makes you looks skinny, which I love. I ordered a 6 and an 8 and I honestly think I could have done a 4. The only thing is I wish it was shorter, but not too short. I tried to hem it with double stick tape and it didn't work. Still though it was great and photographed so well.

I got a 6 and 8 in this dress. I ended up wearing the 6 but I think I might have been able to wear a 4 because the I did not fill up the chest area in the dress. I am 34B.

This dress was stunning and gave me curves in all the right places! I ordered a size 4 and fit like a glove...tiny bit snug across the chest (32D) and hugged through the hips (not roomy like on the model) which was perfect for me!

This dress was fantastic! Perfect for the fall wedding I wore it to. It does run big. I typically wear a size 6, but RTR didn't have any available so I gambled and rented the 4 with no back up. Turned out to be a good choice. Fit was great on top, but a little big on the bottom. Length was great for my tall frame. Came just above the knee. This was my first time using rent the runway. I'll definitely be back.

Almost perfect

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I ordered a size 10 but when I tried it on, it was too small for me - tight in the chest and waist. I'm a tall girl with some weight in my mid section. Even with Spanx, the next size up is needed. The actual dress is stunning! The material is so soft on top and the ruffles fall so beautifully! This is def a must have dress for any upcoming events!

I wore this to my wedding rehearsal and dinner and loved it so much I rented it again on my honeymoon! I originally ordered the 6 and it was a little big on top, but I made due. Ordered the 4 for the honeymoon and it was a perfect fit. I recently lost weight and I think 4 is my new size now, hooray!

I rented this dress for a formal event. I loved the style and color. Plus the fashion tape was useful for the top. I would get the size you need to fit your waist and hips.

Beautiful dress, amazing fit

Overall fit: True to Size

I fell in love with this dress when I saw it in person. I thought it was beautiful online but the fabric and fit are so much nicer. It's incredibly flattering and makes you look very thin. I loved it so much that I'm looking online for where I can buy it. It's that gorgeous. Received tons of compliments on it.

Perfect dress for a perfect evening.

Loved this dress and was complimented on it all night!!! It was my first rental experience, and I will definitely do it again. The only concern is posture. If you tend to slouch, it will look terrible. I was leaned forward in a couple of pics and it looked bad! Throw you shoulders back and have fun!!!!

Great for evening wedding

I liked this dress even more once I saw it in person! The ruffled top is really cute. It's a sexy dress that shows a little skin while remaining classy and elegant. The bottom was a little snug, so ladies with fuller hips may want to consider sizing up. I was worried I was going to be pulling up the one shoulder top all night, but it actually stayed in place perfectly for hours. I never pulled it up once!

Feeling absolutely lovely and impeccably dressed!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I loved wearing this dress! I was kind of in between the two sizes I rented, which kind of blew, but I would say overall it's pretty true to size. The top draping part looks just lovely around your shoulders/arms, and the bottom half of the dress is very sleek and slimming. It seemed the teensiest bit long for me (I'm 5'3) even in heels, but that's not really the dress' fault. I would highly recommend this rental!

I got the 6 and the 4 and ended up wearing the 4. The 6 would have worked but the 4 fit perfectly. This is a very comfortable dress and I got several compliments. I wore with the Kenneth Jay Lane emerald statement earrings from RTR and I loved the whole look. This is easy to wear and perfect for any dressy occasion.

This was my second rental experience with RTR and it was a complete success! I ordered a size 4 and 6(I'm usually a 6) but I was able to fit in the 4 with no problem. It was such a beautiful and comfortable dress! Loved it!

was great and easy to dress up with colorful earrings and shoes. It was a little big in the waist so i had to find a belt to wear with it which you can see in the picture.. fabric feels a little inexpensive

Great dress for a wedding!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this dress for a friend's wedding reception as my backup choice, but ended up loving it! My only minor complaint was that the armhole was a little too low to wear my traditional VS strapless bra, so I was a little concious of that throughout the night. But I got a ton of compliments and really enjoyed how I felt in this dress!

Perfect for an Office Party

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
I wore this for my Office's Christmas party. It was perfect because I could wear the dress during the day with a blazer and then shed the blazer at night. With the blazer, it was perfect for my very conservative office, and without, it was perfect for the party! The dress ran a little large as I generally wear a size 6, but I wore the backup size 8. One thing to note, the band in the middle is really just a grey part of the skirt. It does not cinch in like a belt (which was what I thought when ordering the dress). But it was still overall very flattering.

Pretty but not show-stopping

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress did the job, but wasn't "awesome". If you're looking for something safe, this is a good bet. I have an extreme hourglass figure, so naturally the bottom was tight and the top was a bit large. The length was also modest, which I liked. I would definitely recommend this dress for large-chested women. You'll have plenty of room :)

This dress was so much fun to wear! I got tons of complements and the one-shoulder look was special.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I'm a smaller size on top than on the bottom, so the bottom was slightly snug, while the top was a little loose. It fit well, but is ideal for someone who is pretty straight. The white band sits right across your true waist, which is very flattering and the black bottom is slimming.

This dress can go from the board room (with a blazer on top) to a nice restaurant with a date to a trendy party/club affair...and it did!!! Love the slimming pencil skirt with the shimmery off the shoulder top. just a great outfit :)

giving it 2 stars because it was a cute dress, but wouldn't wear it again

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
this dress is not for busty women. the bust looks very strange when worn with a strapless bra. so i had to go without a strapless bra. the fabric does not breathe at all, so occassionally you get unsightly sweat spots. fashion tape does not stick very well to the fabric either. i did look fantastic in the pictures, but i would never wear this dress again or recommend it to someone with my body type.

I wore this dress at a NYE wedding!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The fit was great and ran true to size. It flattered my body type and I was comfortable wearing it the entire night. The only con was that the fabric wasn't very breathable and got pretty hot while dancing up a storm. I would rent this dress again!

Comfortable but beautiful and elegant at the same time

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I would say this fit true to size. The top was slightly larger than the hips so with a strapless padded bra (32D) it was still a little loose compared to the hips which was form fitting (but flattering.) I would recommend this dress for a wedding, party, date night. I got many compliments on it
