Gorgeous detail, impeccable tailoring, luxurious fabric, beautiful design, Perfect 4 summer wedding!

Size worn: 20W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This was the perfect dress for an outdoor, evening summer wedding in New Orleans. Sexy, fun, beautiful and just gorgeous details and tailoring. The fit was exceptional and super comfortable too. I wore it with a regular black bra, but probably would have looked even more smashing with a strapless. Loved the two bands on the skirt. I wish I had the $$$ to buy this dress, it is truly a gem and made me feel like a total rockin' diva. Got lots of compliments too!

This dress was comfortable to wear and beautiful in person.

Size worn: 14W
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I found this dress to run large. I am normally a size 16 and I know that often the W changes the way things fit but the 14W was still a little baggy on me even with a 34HH bust size.

Amazingly comfortable and flattering

Size worn: 20W
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I normally wear an 18, but needed help zipping it and my friends were afraid to rip it, so I wore the 20 and it fit so comfortably. I wore a black bra and the straps blended with the black lace just fine. As everyone has commented the lining is cream not bright white, but I knew that from prior reviews. Got tons of compliments and wish I could buy it, looking forward to renting again!

This dress was WAY comfortable, and the A-line was so flattering, I didn't worry about my tummy.

Size worn: 16W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
Like I mentioned above, this dress was super comfortable! With the A-line, I didn't have to worry about wearing Spanx or sucking in all night - you girls know what I'm talking about. ;) The lining under the black lace IS nude (not white). I wore a nude bra - a black one would have been fine too. (I was too lazy to go strapless, and thought the nude straps showing looked subtle and fine.) The arm holes are a little on the large size, so if you carry your weight in your arms, no worries! I got so many compliments on this dress. A woman even stopped me in the bathroom to ask who the designer was - I couldn't remember, but I told her about Rent the Runway!

It's so much fun to spend $80 on an expensive dress. You can just tell by the way it fits that it's better made than what I'd usually buy. It fit my hourglass/pear shape well, and hit at the knee. I'm really short so I suspect this dress could be short on some people. The only downside of the dress isn't really the dress's fault -- I forgot that a lace dress catches on things, so my earrings (which I also rented) kept getting stuck in the dress.

The dress fits like a glove!

Size worn: 14W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I have lost a few pounds recently so I am in between dress sizes. I am usually a 16 so I ordered the dress in a 16 and a back up size in a 14. I ended up wearing the 14. I got many compliments on this dress. It was so comfortable and no spanx needed, since I have a bit of a belly that was a plus for me. The dress was great and looked almost brand new in both sizes unlike my back up dress which looked a bit shabby and used. I was very happy with this rental and the customer reviews really helped me to pick the right size. Using RTR again for my next event. Thanks again!

Super cute, classic, and sweet

Size worn: 14W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This is a really cute dress. I have long legs, and it fell farther above my knee than on the model. I would have preferred it to fall at the knee, but this happens to me a lot with dresses so I wasn't surprised. The dress was super comfortable and fit in all the right places, even though it was a little bit big on me. But I'm losing weight right now and am not sure of my "true" size at the moment. The lining is thick, which makes the dress feel substantial even though it is lace. I was worried that the nude lining would make me look larger, but it is actually really flattering. I tried it with a nude bra that matched the lining and ended up wearing a black bra - the nude really shows and looks cheap, but the black blends right in under the lace (there is no lining over the shoulders of the dress, just lace). One note: the lace catches on everything. So just be extra careful not to brush against walls or chairs that might have nails/pins sticking out. But this is the way it is with any lace dress. I got a few compliments wearing this dress!

Size worn: 18W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress fit perfectly. I ordered a 16 and an 18 for a black tie wedding. The 16 fit but was a little tight in the bust, which is why I chose to go with the 18. The dress is nude and black (not white), and I wore it with nude open toe pumps. I also wore it with a strapless bra, which I would recommend because of the laced top. I would definitely recommend this dress, I got tons of complements and I felt amazing in it!

It was the perfect dress for an outdoor wedding!!

Size worn: 14W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This was a great dress for my event. I'm almost 6'0" tall so I was a little concerned about the length, but I don't think it was too short. I agree with everyone's comments about not needing a strapless bra - I wore a black bra and you couldn't see the straps through the lace. The dress was very cute as is - I just don't like my arms out so I added a sweater but I don't think it took away from the dress. Would definitely rent it again for another event!!

Nice dress but not my first choice.

Size worn: 18W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress for a friend's engagement party. This actually wasn't the dress I originally rented. However, RTR notified me the day before my rental was supposed to start that the dress I ordered was returned damaged so I would not be able to rent it. They were extremely helpful in getting me another dress. They also sent another size that I needed to the hotel I was staying at in time for the party. The only problem was that I was really set on the first dress I had chosen and I felt rushed picking out a second style to arrive on time. I was only given a couple of hours to choose and I was busy at an out of town work event. My biggest disappointment was the color. In the picture it looks like it was white underneath which I thought was unique. In person, it's actually tan/nude. I'm not a big fan of the lace over nude just because I feel like I see that in a lot of dresses. I thought the lace over white would be special. Besides the color disappointment, the dress was true to size and very comfortable.

The dress was beautiful and fit perfectly so I was comfortable for this black tie wedding.

Size worn: 14W
Overall fit: Large

The 14W for me fit a tad bit big but for the black tie wedding I was attending it was great for comfort! It was light and fit in all the right spots. It makes your tummy area look slimmer which is always GREAT! The dress on me came to my knees which was a great length, not too short and not too long. I would love to have this dress in my every day closet wear.

I thought it ran a little bit on the large side. I anticipated that I would wear a 16, and rented the 18 as my back up. I wish I would have ordered the 14 as the back up. The dress was very comfortable! I felt great in it, and would definitely recommend it!

This dress was fabulous! I was able to party, party, party and felt sexy, fabulous and beautiful!

Size worn: 20W
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was perfect for my friends wedding! It ran a little large and I was able to wear the 20W comfortably when usually I wear a 22 or 24. I received multiple compliments throughout the night and I didn't even have to wear Spanx (thank the lord)!!! I was disappointed when I received an email the day prior to my rental stating that the 22W I ordered was no longer available. RTR sent the dress in a 20W and 3 other 22W options at no additional charge - the only problem with the 3 choices were that they all were tight tight tight. It would have been nice if the stylist who picked the dress sent other A-line options, after all I'm at 22W here and no one needs to see me in a skin tight lace dress! Overall I am happy with RTR and will use them again for the upcoming weddings I have this fall!

From the beginning, the whole experience was memorable. Whitney, my stylist made me feel at ease and helped me pick accessories as well. This wedding had people who were dressed to the nines and I felt I could hold my own with them. My dress felt comfortable and hid my belly fat. I felt confident, which is what all good dresses should do!

Pretty and comfortable!

Size worn: 14W
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
The dress was a little big for me, it was quite roomy in the waist and hips, but fit nicely in the chest (for once). It was a thicker fabric so felt like it hid a bit more, but that also could have been because it was a little large. It was obviously well made and if I could have had this dress tailored, I would have shortened it just a bit and taken it in at the waist. I have large arms and the arm holes were pretty big too - but the cap sleeve didn't do horrible things like they usually do on me. Overall, I was very happy with the dress and received a lot of compliments.

This dress was the hit of the evening!

Size worn: 18W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was glamorous, beautiful, and most importantly, comfortable! I got compliments all night long. I was able to wear regular black bra with it, and the lace camouflaged it perfectly. Strappy back shoes worked well, but even when switching into flats later in the evening, the dress still looked glamorous. It is perfect for hiding a bit of a tummy, as the fit & flare style is very forgiving. I felt like a princess all night, and will most certainly be renting this dress again!

Absolutely loved this dress and the service I received. The week of my rental I received an email from RTR stating that the renter before me ruined the 14. The stylist made me externally comfortable and allowed me to pick more styles to assure I had a dress for the wedding. When I received the dress I tried them all on n of course loved them but had to choose my original dress. The 16 w was a little big but I loved it too much. Thank you again to RTR for making every experience amazing!!

This dress was PERFECT for a wedding! I wish I could have kept it. I usually wear an 18, but I could have worn the 16 or 18 for this night. I choose the 18 just so I could move and dance more, but I think the 16 could have been a little more flattering. The fabric is beautiful and the way it falls is extremely flattering. It's form fitting in all the right places, while hiding anything you don't want people to see. I would highly recommend this dress.

I recently lost 55 pounds of baby (and exhausted working full time and bring a parent) weight, and the thought of shopping for or investing in a party dress made my head spin. Rent the Runway for the win! I reserved the 22 and the 20 and the 20 fit perfectly. I felt a little self conscious with the length, so I paired it with black tights, and threw on a black cardigan for the ceremony, and left it on most of the party because the venue was chilly. Got a ton of compliments and was sad to have to return it.

Wore this dress for a cocktail party. Note the lining is nude not white like it looks in the photos. Too was slightly big big waist and hips fit true to size. Very comfortable and easily dressed up or down. Received many compliments and would recommend to anyone. Lace was not itchy and just wore a black bra underneath...you could really tell. Highly recommend. For those who are DC local check out the store in Georgetown. The staff is super and you leave feeling like a true hottie!

True to size, ladies! You can even get away with a normal bra, nobody will notice the straps with the elegant lacework on top. I am very busty (My profile says a 36D, but it's really a 36 H. I had plenty of room for the girls, and I felt lovely! Please don't mind the picture, I got tired of my darn shoes.
