Best dress ever!

Overall fit: True to Size

Dress was amazingly comfortable. Random strangers approached me to tell me how much they loved my dress! I was able to do the zipper myself, wore it with black leggings. I felt confident and beautiful all night! Can't wait for an occasion to wear / rent this one again!

This dress runs VERY large. Wish there was a 14, but the belt helped a lot to define a waste. It was super sparkly and fun!

Great fit!

Size worn: 18W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress for my sorority formal. I was a bit nervous about the fit, since I have recently lost about 45 pounds, and wasn't entirely sure what my dress size was, but the 18W fit great! I probably could have even fit into the 16w, but only the 18 was available when I ordered. This was actually my backup dress, but I ended up using it since I liked the fit better than my first dress. This dress is an instant classy look, and I got a ton of compliments on it!

Beautiful Dress, Beautiful Night

Size worn: 16W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The dress is quite a bit darker than pictured on RTR but still just as glamorous. It runs true to size, maybe even a little larger, depending on how you like your fit. I felt beautiful all night and received many compliments. I've rented many times with RTR and will continue to do so. Customer Service is always there for you and the dresses are, quite simply, amazing.

Beautiful dress, just not for me

Size worn: 18W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I have an hourglass figure and I'm very busty (bigger than the max 38D the website limits me to). I usually like a bit of cleavage in my dresses. This dress is beautiful and fit perfectly but not enough cleavage - I felt kind of dumpy. I went with another dress instead.

Beautiful material!!

I ordered this dress in a 16W but received an email that it was too damaged to send so I received the 18W and two other dresses. The 18W was too big. The dress has a little stretch so a 16W would have hugged my curves and looked great. I am 5'8" and the dress hit me just above the knee. I did not end up wearing this one but would definitely order it again in a smaller size.

The dress was gorgeous!

Size worn: 16W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This was my first time using rent the runway, but it was so great! The dress was beautiful and perfect for my theatre gala. Definitely darker than pictured. And as the 14 was taken for the weekend, I had to size up. The 14 or even the 12 probably would have fit. It was pretty large. Ended up putting a pin in it to take in the sides. It also was a little longer than I expected, but it was still beautiful. Main downside, the 16 was very worn-in. Beads were falling off as soon as I opened it up. Many loose strings, but the dress was dark enough that you couldn't tell. Just made me concerned for the fragility of the dress.

This was a back up dress. It runs really large. Looked like a sack on me. Wasnt anywhere near the look I wanted for my birthday. Its a pretty dress great if you're looking for a dress that just falls on you and not showing any type of shape.

Runs big, I normally can wear a 16 or even and 18. The 14 was the perfect size for me, my husband said this is the best dress he's ever seen on me. I was suprised that there was a black lining, then the mesh beaded dress goes over top. it worked great, just didn't expect that.

I didn't end up wearing this dress. It runs large and the 16 was loose. I did try the belt technique like another RTR reviewer had and it did bring it together. I opted to wear another RTR dress because I didn't have the right belt for the job and there was some loose beading on the 16.

Felt wonderful in this dress. Perfect for an evening wedding!

Size worn: 14W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wish this had come in a straight 14. The 14W was a bit on the bigger side but it was very comfortable. I am 4'11" and the dress length was just at the top of my knee. It is two pieces a black slip type garment underneath and then the beaded overlay. Very pretty. Some of the beads were loose but no one would ever know it. It is very dressy and perfect for the wedding I was attending. Loved the cap sleeves. This was my first experience with Rent the Runway and I'm hooked!!

I rented this for a Vegas bachelorette party and was unable to wear it. Dress runs large. I loved the length and the cute cap sleeves but found the overall look too matronly, though perhaps due to the dress being too large.

This looked like a paper bag on me. A pretty fabric--but the cut is terrible and not flattering. There is no shape. Also--this is heavily beaded and some places the beading was damaged.

Loved this dress! It was beautiful and I got soo many compliments on it.

Size worn: 16W
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is gorgeous and so glam. I wore it to a night time wedding and everyone loved it. It does seem to run a little big, however, I fluctuate between a 14 and 16, and the 14 was unavailable for the weekend I needed it, so I got the 16. The 14 definitely would've been better for me. I ended up not wearing the black slip that came under it because I didn't want to pin that and ruin it, and it was much too big. Instead I just wore a black cami and a black bodycon skirt I already had, and then I pinned back the gold overlay part so it would be more fitted. Overall it's an amazing dress, I'd just suggest sizing down. :)

The lovely pattern on the model is lost in person, making this dress a clingy and short Monet: looks good from afar, but up close it's far from good. Didn't wear in either size, though the 18 fit better than the 20.

I ordered sizes 16W & 18W. The 16W fit nicely; however, it was too short for my 5'11" frame so I went with the 18W dress instead. Nice shimmer on the dress; however, some of the beading was a bit loose.

Gorgeous Dress

Size worn: 16W
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
This is a gorgeous dress. It has a bit of jazz without being overkill. Be forewarned that the style on this is boxy. I have quite a bit of curve which helps. If I had thin gold belt, I would have worn it to give it more shape. I have large hips with a 38/40 DD bust, and a little waist. It does run large. I am an 18 and ended up wearing the 16W, which was even a smidge big, but perfect for a wedding. If you get this dress, don't be afraid if some of the beads fall off....when I initially tried it off I heard beads hitting the hardwood even as I was taking it off the hanger. Still a gorgeous dress with missing beads.

This dress ran huge.

Size worn: 16W
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
This dress ran a full two sizes two big. I got the 16 because the 14 was unavailable, but a 12 would really have been needed to provide any shape like in the RTR photo. Had it fit, it would be lovely. It's actually a separate slip (black) and over-layer that is more of a knit. And don't be afraid, the slip has some stretch to it. Had it fit, this dress would have been so comfortable to wear, but it was unwearable and I wore my other rental option.

I wore this dress to my Roaring 20's themed Bridal Shower.

Size worn: 18W
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
This dress was in rough shape (several beads were hanging by a thread) and it was huge, but I didn't have a backup plan for my bridal shower so I made it work. It's worth noting that the dress is entirely separate from the sheath/slip underneath. In hindsight, I should have contacted RTR immediately - now I know what to do. I think the dress would have been more flattering if it hadn't been so big. It was modern and yet fit the theme perfectly and it photographed beautifully.

Great comfy dress that got compliments!

Size worn: 18W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This was amazingly comfortable, and the length is perfect for shorter women - at 5'3" it hit a few inches above the knee. I wore this paired with a black elbow length cardigan and it worked well. The dress skims over all the problem areas while still being a flattering shape. Only issue was that it's a well-loved dress obviously because both the dresses (size we think we are/size we hope we are) had a major issue with the beading hanging off. I pulled through with a crochet hook and tied off where I could, but that was time consuming. Would I rent this again? Definitely! Would just inspect it on arrival so I'd have a lot more time for repairs if needed. Five stars even with the beading issues should tell you how much I loved this dress!

I got this as a back up for the other RTW dress I rented (and ended up wearing). I am a 12/14 normally and I suspected the 14W would be too big and it was. It is actually 2 pieces (a slip and then overlay) - which was interesting and practical. I would have loved to try it in a straight up 12 or 14.

Cute dress that was very comfortable

Size worn: 14W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress for a charity dinner, the slip that came with it was way too long and hung out below the bottom of the dress, so I choose to wear my own. The dress overlay is stretchy and has a lot of give, though with the size I got I didn't need it. It was cute and not overly flashy for my event. I wore a black blazer, tights, and low heels to compensate for the sparkle of the dress. It was comfortable all night.

I rented this dress for an out of town wedding and had it delivered to where I was staying...one less thing to pack! I rented my usual size and a size down and was surprised that the smaller one fit better! Very comfortable as its not too form fitting...allowed for easy movement. Wedding was in a warm climate and having a more loose fitting dress was much more comfortable in the heat. Bead work was just the right amount of texture without being flashy. I got TONS of compliments!

Overall fit: Large

I rented this dress for the gold sheen but when I got it, it was a lot darker than I expected - almost black. Unfortunately the smallest size was a 14W which was quite large and not form fitting for me at all (I'm usually a 12) - but I was happy with the dress overall since we went out for a large meal that evening, I had room to move around. The dress is comfortable with curves but I wish they offered a few smaller sizes!

I rented this because it was one of the few dresses I liked when picking from the site that was available in a 14W. I picked it as a backup option, and I am glad my 1st choice worked out because this dress didn't work for me. It had no shape; seemed to run big; and was too short on my 5'9" frame.

So many people couldn't believe it was me.

Size worn: 18W
Rented for: Wedding
I really loved this dress. I wish I had gotten it in the 20w but was quite surprised the 18w fit. The only drawback on this dress is that it hurts to sit on it. I was at a wedding outdoors on hard plastic chairs and the dress left quite an impression on me. I would rent it again in the 20 for comfort sake.
