This was my first time using RTR. I got lots of compliments and will definitely use it again!
The fit was great it was slightly bigger than I needed it to be but it wasn't a problem. It was comfortable and fun to dance in! I wore this to our school fundraising gala and had lots of compliments!

Perfect for an understated nice outfit.
Very flattering fit to accentuate the waist. Lightweight so doesn't feel restrictive at all. Very thin material though so definitely not for really cold weather. Good with tights!

Great dress
I have 38F bra size and this dress fit well in the 16w size. The 18w was my back up - it fit but was too roomy. I was worried I would need a strapless bra... But a black regular bra was fine. I received lots of compliments on the dress. I wore this to a bar mitzvah.

Flattering, comfortable, and glamorous!
The dress fit perfectly and wasn't too heavy. I felt extremely comfortable and beautiful the entire night. One of the servers at the wedding even complimented me on the dress so I knew it was a winner. This was my first experience with RTR; and I will definitely do it again. I was impressed with the packaging and how easy the whole process was from renting to returning. My family kept asking me where I got the dress so I think a few more people will be trying out this awesome experience!

This was very flattering and fun!
It was roomy in the stomach which allowed me to breath and most importantly it was not tight on the breasts.

i think this dress ran large but not dramatically. really nice fit
I am usually between 2 different sizes so getting 2 was great for me. i could've worn either but I found the smaller size fit a little nicer. the skirt is kind of "full" so be aware if you don't like that. super comfy, super forgiving and received a ton of compliments!

Very flattering and COMFORTABLE!
I rented this for a holiday party for my husband's work. I rented the 16 and the 18, but the 18 was too big. The 16 fit well overall, but was slightly loose in the bust and shoulders. The dress comes in at the waist, right below the bust and then flares out, so it is a very forgiving shape and you don't need to worry about wearing spanx underneath it :-). I dressed it up with some sparkly shoes and a black shawl. I LOVED this dress, it was very classy and elegant, but also very fun!

I didn't actually wear it
I couldn't decide between dresses and ordered two. I didn't wear this one to the wedding because I wanted color, but it fit well, if a little large and looked good.

Comfortable and fancy
Runs true to size if not a bit big. Comfortable and dressy at the same time. Got tons of compliments - rented it a second time! Worked for my huge bust without squishing me. Love it.

Looked like a million dollars.
Comfy fit, great lace detailing, the lining rides up a little when worn with tights. flattering cut. 42D fit perfect at chest no problem with a strapless bra.

Super comfy and cute!
Very comfortable fit. I normally wear a size 16, but the 14 was just right. It was a little shorter than I expected, but was fine with tights. I loved that I could wear a regular black bra with the dress and you couldn't tell.

I had ordered this dress as a back up, but when I tried it on it was so incredibly comfortable! I got many compliments on how it flattered my figure and looked so elegant. I would definitely rent it again!

Such a comfortable dress!
I rented this for a family member's wedding, and it was perfect! The wedding was pretty formal, and this dress was elegant enough and so, so comfortable to wear. It fit perfectly, even through the bust (I'm a 36G), with plenty of breathing room. The lace overlay is gorgeous - more than I was expecting from the photos! I was able to wear a regular black bra without it looking weird, and just added a black cardigan for warmth. I would definitely rent this dress again!

Fantastic dress!
This dress is perfect. I ordered true to size and it fit beautifully. It hugs in the right areas and is forgiving in others where you need a little room. I ate, danced (a lot), sat, and even did a few sprints in this dress. The top of the dress is see-through lace both front and back so you can see straps. You can chose to wear a strapless bra if you like. I opted for a satin type black bra with mesh in the straps. It blended in and looked like another layer. I also tried a nude bra but it did stand out and was much more noticeable, surprisingly enough. Overall I would rent this dress again, I felt so comfortable yet beautiful and really enjoyed the evening. Enjoy!

So to be honest - I hate wearing dresses :-) But, I felt beautiful!!
I am not a dress wearer, in fact haven't worn one for probably 10yrs. I picked this one out after being introduced to the website and fell in love with it as soon as I put it on. In fact, I was trying to figure out if I should buy one! I felt elegant, but it was comfortable to dance in for 3+hrs during the reception. A few notes - the arm holes were a little large even for the size. I tend to have very large arms anyway, but they were still a little big. It didn't show anything though. Also - it has a very nice beige lining thats silky smooth. All in all - I loved it! And would definitely wear a dress again :-)

Really flattering dress, cute, got lots of complements. Comfortable!
True to size, a little large in the bust. Only issue I had was the thin satin hanger straps coming out (under my arms) and having to tuck them back in. Another woman at my event had the dress on, but luckily she was in blue! I wore it with black ballet flats and they looked cute (and comfy).

Dress was a little stretched out but otherwise in great condition. You can wear a regular bra with it and don't need anything special underneath. Very comfortable and easy to wear!

I got so many compliments on this dress. I am 5'10" so it could have been an inch or two longer, but was fine. Just had to be careful with dancing. I am pretty pear shaped, and this dress worked perfect!

Really comfortable, fun, and flirty!
This dress was great for a wedding! My fiancé and are were invited to 12 weddings this summer, so I was so excited to learn about RTR so I could have a 'new' dress for each. This was my first experience and I have already ordered another dress for another wedding in a few weeks. The dress itself was PERFECT! It did run a little large, but only because the material is stretchy and is very giving. It hugged my curves perfectly. If you have an hour glass figure, this will show your curves in the best way possible! I got so many compliments.

comfortable & beautiful
I wore this to the NC Jaycees mid-year convention this past weekend. As a Jaycee I attend awards ceremonies twice a year and am often photographed so I feel the need to purchase a new dress each time, which gets pricey and frustrating. The prior week I attended a batchlorette party where the bride wore a beautiful gold Badgley Mischka dress from here and I knew that this would be perfect for me. The dress was so comfortable I wore it the entire night, long after others had changed into their regular clothes / pjs. I felt pretty and received lots of compliments. I wore the smaller size, the 16 and you could not notice my nude bra. I paired it up with a gold clutch, gold earrings and a gold braclet, all for this site. Very happy with the outcome, will definitely use again! PS my bust is really more of a 42DD, but apparently they only go up to 38D, fix that RTR!

This was a good experience for my first time using Rent the Runway!
My dress size is usually all over the place. So thank you to all of the women who list statistics. It really helps when trying to decide on what size to order. The backup 16W would have worked but I was much more comfortable in the 18W. I received numerous compliments all night. The new packaging in the garment bag is a plus and returning was very easy. I will definitely do this again.

The dress is light for summer and fit wonderfully. It was perfect for an outdoor summer wedding.
I ordered the 20W with the 18W for a backup. I bounce between the two sizes. I am glad I ordered the 18. It was a great fit! It accentuated the curves. The 20W ended up being a little large. The material was light and the dress was airy, which was needed for a 90 degree summer day. It's an incredible dress that I would rent again!

Perfect dress for a formal event! Picture's don't do it justice.
this dress fit perfect! I was worried about the length because I typically wear petites, but it was great! I love the way the dress was shipped and returning was so simple! This was my first rent the runway experience and I would defnitely rent again. I shyed away from it for years, but this worked great for my event and budget!

Great dress for a wedding. It was comfortable and beautiful! As other reviews mentioned, you can wear a nude bra with it without any attention drawn to it. Would rent this again if I had to!
