Perfect bachelorette party dress!
I wore this dress for a bachelorette party and was completely comfortable. The style is incredibly flattering as it cinches in at the waist but provides volume on bottom and on top with the lace detail. I absolutely love this dress, and might even choose to purchase it one day!

Such a fun & pretty dress, got so many compliments!
Loved the fit of this dress, it was extremely flattering in the waist and true to size. The adjustable straps were awesome. The cutout was a fun detail but felt a little awkward. The material for the back panel was kind of casual and loose-fitting, which is very different from the skirt (more formed fitting). Overall a beautiful dress, I felt great in it all night long! Super easy to wear with a strapless bra and definitely easy to dress up or down.

Runs small!
A lot of people said this ran big but when I tried the medium I couldn't even get the back to zip up. I usually wear an 8 and would have needed the large so I went with another dress. It is pretty but not very fancy in person

Little loose but really fun dress
I rented a small and medium, but I wish I had grabbed an extra small. I'm always a 4 so I thought it'd work. Either way, the dress was really fun and cute. Got a lot of compliments. However, I wouldn't recommend it to girls with small waists and big hips/butts because I didn't feel very flattered by it.

Ended up using a bra for extra support but you could go either way. The straps stayed in place all night.

Cute dress
Dress was very comfortable. The pockets are the best part. Got lots of compliments. Strapless bra is a must because the top portion is stretchy material. Would recommend for a fuller bust.

Great dress, a little big on top.
The dress was nice, but felt a little large on top. I'm typically a 6/8, and may have been able to still size down comfortably.

Easy, pretty dress for a wedding & casual night out in NYC
Such an easy dress to dress down or up. The dress had pockets! The straps are adjustable and I didn't have to wear a bra. I felt secure not wearing one. The hip area is loose and comfy. The length hit me a bit above my knee, I liked it. I wore this to a wedding in Long Island and it did not make me feel hot. After the wedding I took off my fancy jewelry, put on some flats and it was perfect casual dress for the rest of the night in NYC. I felt good in it and would rent again.

Very comfortable bachelorette dress!
This dress fit true to size for me. Very comfortable, flirty length but not too short for tall people. The back is fun and easy, especially since I could wear a regular strapless bra!

Cute and easy
This was a cute, easy dress to wear. I wore it out to the theater one night, and to dinner a week later. It's simple and very flattering, and then the cut out in the back gives it a little extra fun something. It shows a little cleavage without being in appropriate, and the length was good for going out without it being too short or too conservative. It worked well with both sandals and heels.

bachelorette party perfection!
I wore this for my bachelorette party; it was a nice material and good for warm weather. The straps are thin, and adjustable which allows you to adjust how low the neckline is.

The lace detail
Loved this dress. The lace at the chest was really pretty and the cut is very flattering. There is a small open back but I was able to wear a strapless bra which was great. The dress was very comfortable. I wore the medium, which I would say is pretty true to size, but I could have squeezed into the small if I was not worried about eating/dancing all night. Overall, great rental!

Perfect NoLA bachelorette party dress!
I wore this for a bachelorette in New Orleans and it was perfect. The bride asked that we all wear black one night and I chose this. It was revealing enough without feeling excessive and comfortable enough to celebrate far in to the night. I highly recommend it for anyone who is generally a modest dresser but wants to take a small risk. I felt comfortable in spite of my usual more covered style. Beautiful dress.

Glad i ordered two sizes!!
Rented this for a bachelorette party and the medium fit amazing!! After i tried it on i realized one of the straps was just barely on there, the large still fit but was just a little big in the waist and straps! I called rent the runway and they were more than willing to overnight me a dress to denver! I was so impressed i ended up not having enough time to figure one out and just wore the large! It still looked good and was super comfy!

Comfortable black lace dress with fun accents
I got this dress as a back up when the one i really wanted was returned damaged. It wasn't exactly what i was going for (a LBD to go dancing in) but i was still able to wear it during my vacation for a day of shopping and lunching. I did love the lace, the neckline and the unique back. Also, very comfy! In this pic my friend is wearing my other rental by MSGM (under the purple palm) that i couldn't quite zip in the back, but another super fun vacay dress!

This dress was beautiful, fun, and feminine. Love it so much I'm considering buying it. It fits very snug in the waist so would recommend sizing up if you aren't sure. LOVE!!!!

The pretty lace details are perfect
I have rented this dress twice now and love it. The first was for a cocktail party type function and the other for a wedding. I love the feminine lace details at the top and I feel like it is a flattering shape as it flowy on the bottom and more fitted on top.

I wore this as a bridesmaids dress! It's so flattering.
The best part about this dress is the lace details. They're so beautiful and not too revealing or too sexy for a wedding. Covers cleavage well, and hides a muffin top!

Cute dress worn for Graduation, and a date
The dress fits fine; I usually wear a size 4 and rented a medium and a small, wore the small. It has one downside: the band in the back is unflatteringly wide, and cheap looking. But it's only the back! I could have pinned it under to make it thinner, but it wasn't a huge deal. The openness of the back hit at a perfect spot, the flowery lace is beautiful, and it's just the right length for my legs.

This dress was perfect for my graduation.
It fit well. The zipper was very finicky and difficult to do up. There were lots of threads that were getting stuck in the zipper. However, once on, the dress was beautiful.

Beautiful piece!
Rented this little number for engagement pictures, but unfortunately we got rained out and dress wasn't available for our reschedule. It's pretty low in front, but the eyelash details are so pretty and feminine, and the skirt is a decent length so it's still very appropriate. Fits in all the right spots, and straps ARE adjustable! Recommend and will rent again!

Comfortable and cute
I'm usually a size 4 or 6, and I wore this dress in M, which I felt fit well with maybe just a little bit of extra room in the bodice. The dress was very comfortable (as a bonus, I didn't need to wear a bra, which is really unusual for me) and cute; it's not a flashy dress at all, but the back gives it a little extra something. The only minor issue is that it was clear to me that this is a popular dress that had been worn many times--it was in generally good condition, but there was a little fraying here and there in the lace, especially near the bottom.

Fun night in Raleigh
The bodice of the dress was a little snug - definitely no give in the fabric, so I'm grateful I ordered a size up as my backup option. Once zipped, the dress was very flattering and the black lace made it easier to dress up or dress down. Would recommend this dress for many different occasions.

I was so excited to put this dress on
This dress was great! I'm glad I had the opportunity to wear it. I'm not into wearing heels (as you can see I'm wearing converse) and that was a great look. I do have a bigger busy and while I was dancing one of the straps broke so I would want to be aware of that. But other than that it was fantastic and easy to have fun in!

Beautiful dress! Wish I owned it!
This dress was perfect for my sorority formal. I ordered the large and it fit great. The chest was a bit large for me, but straps are adjustable so that made it fit better. The back was less revealing than I was expecting as the back panel is very wide, but it was very classy. The lace details on the neckline/hemline are beautiful and it has pockets!! Overall, great first dress for me to rent from Rent the Runway!

Cute short dress that I rented for a Sweet sixteen my daughter attended!
High quality lace, adjustable straps for easy fit and perfect length (short but not too short). The dress could be dressed up or down depending on the event shoes and accessories. Also, it was only $40 so it was cheaper then I could have found a dress for this event.

Comfortable and flirty!
Felt great in this dress! Ordered the M and L and both fit but I wore the bigger size to give me more room to dance. Looks great on, and has elastic in the top to accommodate a larger chest. Perfect for dancing and having fun without having to worry about any wardrobe issues. Wore it without a bra because the strapless bra looked weird in the back, but I had no issues since the fit was good on the top!

Timeless ballerina style
This isn't the kind of dress that gets you noticed in a crowd, but it is very, very pretty. The cut is very flattering, the open back and short hemline are super sexy, and the neckline and sweet silhouette are timeless and very "ballerina." At the last minute I ditched the strapless bra and went braless, because it emphasized the ballerina look. This is the kind of dress you just want in your closet. It is comfortable and versatile. I loved it so much I even wore it the next day, with boots and a sweater.

adjustable straps perfect for taller girls
Wore this dress to my sorority formal. The large fit perfect on the bottom, could've worn the medium on top but the medium was an inch from zipping on the bottom. Loved the adjustable straps, being tall, this allowed it to become long enough for me. Loved this dress, will definitely be renting again.

The only con to this dress is the stretchy piece on the back since I am small up top that part was a little big for my taste. Overall though this dress was fabulous. I wore it with a cardigan and tights and got tons of compliments while on vacation.
