Shiny but boxy

Size worn: 14W

A very pretty dress made very well but does not provide a great shape. It proved to be a bit boxy on my shape and I have a full bust and wide hips. Pretty color and runs a bit large.

The dress was true to size fit very comfortable was not tight or to loose. I had no issue with the lining or the sequence. I actually liked that the lining was separate from the dress. The dress was exactly at the knee not to short I am 5'7 it was a great rent.

Not as cute as the photo

Size worn: 18W
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
I ordered this dress for an event at work. I was afraid it might be a little too flashy based on the photos, but in person it was actually very matronly! The body was shapeless - no darts or seaming of any kind. It was really unflattering - it made me look much older and larger than I am. I was thankful that I had ordered more than one dress, as I just didn't feel good in this one and didn't wear it.

Fit a bit large (which was a great feeling for a busty chick like me) but not so large that it was unflattering. Highly recommend this dress.

I ended up not wearing it because it was too big and made me look frumpy :(

Size worn: 14W
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
when I saw the dress in the packaging, I was really excited because the sequins reflect light really well without being too flashy. when I first put on the lining dress without having to unzip the side zipper, I knew it would be too big. After I put the second layer for sequins, you were unable to see my figure. I should have taken a photo, but I put it back and sealed the UPS package up before I thought to take a photo for this website! ***Customer service is amazing. This company really understands being different-body type conscious as well as time urgency. They're really on top of it for responding to clients as well as sending out dresses immediately. I really really appreciated their help.***

Dress is very pretty and had it fit, would have been great. But it was so large in the hips and waist that i couldn't wear it. Bust was not as loose on me, but probably could have gone down a size there, too. Alas, it doesn't come any smaller!

Sparkles!!!!

Size worn: 14W
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress ran a bit large but overall the fit was good. I was given tons of compliments all night long. It was super fun to wear and very comfortable. The downside of this dress is the sequences would get stuck together so I would get snagged on other dresses or I would snag the arm on my side. I spent a great deal of the night unsticking myself. If you rent this dress, maintain your distance from others!

Very comfortable, wonderfully made, I am busty ( 42 DDD) with a full waistline, smaller in the hips. This dress is super-flattering for that style figure. Makes you look a couple of sizes smaller. Received multiple compliments throughout the night. I love this dress!

This dress wasn't very flattering. It was shapeless and not very form fitting. The color was nice and the sparkle made me wish it worked out. I actually rented this as my backup and rented the Hello Dolly Kay Unger Dress as well and didn't need the sheath dress.

Shiny and pretty, but heavy/itchy fabric. Not much shape.

Size worn: 16W
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I ended up going with the other dress I rented for my event, but I found this dress to be a little shapeless as other reviewers have said. I would recommend belting it...it would make the biggest difference. The fabric is heavy and slightly itchy so I'd recommend renting this one for a colder or indoor event. It wasn't horrible, just not the right choice for my venue!

Size worn: NONE

It was a very pretty and elegant dress, but it was too formal for my event. It also was pretty loose and shapeless on my curvy, hourglass figure. I would rent this dress, sized down for a different event like opening night of a play or awards banquet.

I originally ordered this for a wedding. I had a wedding in the afternoon/evening, and then a bachelorette party in the late hours. This was originally the dress I was going to wear all evening, but I felt it was a little to 'flashy' for the wedding. Plus, it didn't cling to me quite as well as it does on the model. The dress was a little short for my almost 6' stature (which is why I didn't wear it to the wedding). It was very comfortable and fun for the bachelorette event instead.

Flattering and comfortable!!

Size worn: 16W
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was so great! This was my first time using Rent the Runway, and the whole experience was wonderful. I received many compliments on the dress, and I felt very comfortable in it. It definitely hid my belly, which is usually a problem for me. The dress is not form fitting, so if you're looking for something to highlight your figure, you might want to pick a different style, but I enjoyed feeling comfortable and pretty at the same time (rather than having to choose one or the other!). I usually wear a size 16, and I ordered 16W with the 14W as backup. I ended up wearing the size 16 for the underlayer and the size 14 for the sparkly top layer (the 14 would have fit for both, but the dress was a tiny bit short on my 5'11" self and the size 16 underlayer was a little longer). I would absolutely recommend this dress, and as others have suggested, would suggest ordering your regular size with the next-smaller size as backup.

Great for formal dinners on cruise

Size worn: 16W
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Vacation
Could've gone down a size. Normally don't wear "W" sizes, but opted to go with that with formal wear since I've found they tend to run small in "regular" sizes. Beautiful dress. I'll agree with the comments that it's not very shapely (even with shapewear). It kinds of just hangs. Not heavy at all. I did get many compliments though. Only real complaint was the pain in returning it. Kind of a hassle to find a UPS authorized return sight when on vacation. Minor problem, but finally tracked one down open on weekends to return.

I'm between a size 16 regular and 14W. I ended up wearing the 16W, which fit my hips the best. Slightly large in the shoulders, but nothing that was uncomfortable or baggy. I received many compliments on the dress and am very happy with how it looked.

I found this dress forgiving and true to size. It's basically a satin slip with a mesh overly. I wore a regular bra and snapped it into the straps of the slip. I went with a nude heel. I wore it to a wedding and received so many compliments! A number of people asked me where I got it.

Beautiful dress

This dress definitely runs large. If it would have been a 14 regular, it would have fit perfectly. I had to fly out of town for a wedding, so I decided to go with it. The dress looked brand new. My only complaint is that it did not have any shape to it, so it does not flatter your curves. It was very comfortable and easy to wear all evening. It definitely looked "curvy" on the model. If you have no waist it would be a perfect dress. Lots of compliments, but i thought i did not look so good in the photos.

Really comfortable & fun dress for the CMA Awards!

Size worn: 18W
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
Normally wear a size 18 so that's what I ordered; it was a little big and could've used a little more shape to it. I could pull the slip & dress on without having to unzip it, the 16 would have probably fit. I got tons of compliments on the dress, it was very comfy, none of the mesh was itchy and I felt stylish w/o worry about any wardrobe malfunctions. I would've like it to be a little shorter, it hit right at the knee but that's usual being 5'3".

Unable to wear, but stunning!!

Size worn: 18W
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I never ended up wearing this (STUNNING!!) dress, because the fit was completely off. I can't blame it all on the dress though, as my body shape isn't exactly normal. I'm bigger on the bottom and my shoulders are much smaller, comparatively, so the straps on the underlayer of this dress simply could not stay up AT ALL, even in the smaller size. The bottom portion of the dress fit nicely, although I felt the 20 fit even better, but the straps were equivalent to that of a dress 4 x bigger. Another big turnoff was that my undergarment (Spanx) showed in the back of this dress, so I couldn't wear it and you really need to be fairly "smoothed out" underneath to pull off this dress. Very bummed that I couldn't wear it, because it's really a showstopper.

So sparkly!!!

Size worn: 20W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Loved this dress! Sequinned, netted over-dress with a detached satin wide strap slip dress underneath. Beautiful color, picked up blue and silver tones from the light. It was fairly comfortable; sequins were a bit scratchy on the arms as they are not lined, but nothing terribly uncomfortable or unusual for this material. Based on the size chart, I choose the 20W. Fit nicely, was a bit more sheath than body-con, and quite lovely on. My measurements are 48-41-52 for reference for fit, with the slip dress fairly fitted in the bust; this dress hit just at the top of my knee length-wise.
