Flattering and so comfortable
Fits true to size. I am normally a 4-6 and the small was perfect. The ruching makes this dress! It is so forgiving! My favorite rental so far!

Beautiful and so flattering!
I cannot think of any bad things to say about this dress. It fit absolutely perfect and was very comfortable and extremely flattering. It really showed off my figure. I wore it for a small NYE get-together at my parents' - so I wanted to wear something sexy (for me & my husband) but classy at the same time. And this dress definitely delivered. I wore shapewear for a clean look and a single-strap bra. I paired it with black peep-toe booties and the overall look was great. Got many compliments all night! I say this every time but I really wish I could keep this dress. And one other thing - the dress is definitely violet and black. It says it in the description but I thought it was blue based on the pictures. Still very beautiful!

every one complimented my dress and said it was very pretty and complimentary to my body.
I recently gained some weight in my new job, so knowingthis dress was stretch material was one of the main reasons I ordered it. I got size M and L. I probly could of fit in the S. but the M still fit comfortably and I felt amazing!!!

Made for someone very tall!
I ordered this as a backup for a bachelorette party weekend in Miami. I didn't end up wearing it because it was so long. The material ended up bunching on my almost 5'3" frame, and hit at a weird spot. Great color, but be wary if you are on the shorter side.

Everyone said I had the best dress at the party!
This was my first rental from Rent the Runway, and it was such a great experience! The dress was in like new condition, and fit like a glove! I'm telling you, I turned HEADS! Very fun! This dress runs large, so an extra small fit me. I'm very small chested, so while I didn't need to wear a bra I definitely ended up going that route. Since the dress is form fitting, without one I looked almost completely flat. (Sidenote: I don't own a strapless. I wore a regular bra and hid one strap in the dress. It worked like a charm.) The only reason I'm giving this four stars is because it does ride up a bit. Other than that, great! I will DEFINITELY be renting a dress again! Actually, I'll be doing it this coming weekend. I'm addicted already.

The dress fit a little big, but it was kind of nice having that little leeway to work with especially after dinner and dessert ; ) It really was a beautiful dress and it was perfect for the occasion.

Very pretty color!
Based on previous reviews, I was debating between ordering a medium and a small. I ordered the medium. It ended up being a little too big on top. I'm a 34C and I had to pin it under both arms to get it to fit tighter. If you are larger busted you should be fine but if not, consider sizing down one. The only other thing I didn't like was how the draping was attached on the right hip (left in photo). I thought it made my hip look really pointy and higher than the left hip. But I can be over critical and I'm probably the only one who noticed this. Otherwise the dress was very nice. It's very stretchy and forgiving and the color is rich. Overall I was pleased with this dress.

LOVED this dress!
I rented this dress for a company holiday party and was looking for something classy yet young and modern. I received so many compliments on this dress that fit very well, even considering I was 5 months pregnant wearing this. I consider myself hourglass figure but enjoyed how this hugged my curves but not too tight. I also liked how the dress came in the package. It shows that the company cares about their clothing and they made it super easy to return.

Too small
I was unable to wear this dress and was so sad about it too! I rented this for my birthday celebration this past year and rented 2 sizes, but neither of them fit. My love handles weren't loving me that night and I was so bummed, thinking that the bigger size would fit anyways. I love the color on this though and if it had fit, I would have loved it too!

Very comfortable and beautiful colors!
The color is more of a purple-blue and black than what I thought it would be, but it is super pretty. I normally wear a 4 and ordered a S and XS, I wore the XS. The material is stretchy and I had no problem fitting into the XS. I thought the top of the dress was very flattering, the one-shoulder is wide enough that I didn't have to worry about it at all and I didn't have any "under-armpit-flab" on the other side, which I normally do with one-shoulder or strapless dresses. The ruching was both good and bad... I loved that it added curves but there is a bump where it all gathers on one side that I wasn't a fan of. Other than that, it was very comfortable and great for dancing all night!

Loved this dress. The fabric stretches nicely so it's a safe choice if you are worried about fit. I agree with the previous review that it is best for slimmer figures. It definitely accentuates curves.

Love the dress! The fit is very flattering due to the cut and the rouching and very comfortable. I vary in size from 0-4 so I ordered a small. There was plenty of fabric and stretch in the chest (I am a C, but it could probably fit even larger). I received lots of compliments!

Overall, the dress is dressy without being too formal. Ruching in all the right places--so flattering for anyone with some tummy to hide--made me look like I had a waist! Plus, the material is stretchy and you can pull it down a bit longer if you'd like. Enough room on top for bustier girls, too. Loved it!

This dress is so nice. I wore it last night to a wedding and it was a hit. I received compliments from the girls and I enjoyed wearing it. It was sexy and a little short, but I was fine with it because it wasn't inappropriate. It also looks great on pictures. I asked for a Small size, but I ended up wearing the backup size XS. I am a 32B so I had to wear a strapless with padding, so it would accentuate my curves. I felt fabulous and I recommend this dress!

This is a fun dress. I am 5'7, 141 lbs, and the small was a prefect size. I also ordered the medium, but the small looked much better. Be warned, it IS short, but I paired it with black opaque tights and black booties, and it looked fine. I'd recommend this dress!

I loved this dress. Though other reviewers have said this would be better on a slimmer figure, I thought the ruching and the stretch in the fabric was form-flattering on a curvier figure. The color and length were just right for a holiday party.

I wore this dress in the size Medium. I'm a d-cup and the top fit very well. The dress made me look curvy in the perfect way, although I wish the bottom was a little tighter and actually stayed down (I had to pull it down throughout the night)...I assume this would have been fixed if I had actually received the fit kit that's supposed to come with it. It's probably a little bit better on someone with a slightly longer torso than I have, but it did look great and I got lots of compliments :-)

I am 5'6" 135lbs 36C/D with 37 inch hips and 26 inch waist and pretty fit. The small wasn't available so I tried the XS and it fit like a glove. I was a bit snug in the bust and I def wasn't going to be eating dinner in it, but it look fantastic, I felt super sexy and got a million compliments on how great I looked. i think I could have easily worn the small, it just would have been a little longer and less fitted, but still hugged my curves. The material is pretty stretchy so I think smaller girls could wear an XS too as long as they weren't extremely small chested. I can't say enough how gorgeous this dress is, I will absolutely rent it again.

Absolutely loved this dress!! Wore this dress out for a night in Vegas and got so many compliments. You can adjust the length no problem whether you want to be more conservative or be a little sexier. Fit beautifully, I got a 0 and a 2 just to be safe and the 0 fit like a glove! Definitely want another occasion to wear this dress again.

I enjoyed wearing this dress out, but it just wasn't at the same level of quality that you should be seeing for a dress that retails at $500 (or rents for $75). The fit was curve-hugging and the print was lovely, but the silk jersey material just wasn't great. I suggest checking the dress IMMEDIATELY for any holes in the fabric. Especially if you rent it in XS. You might find, as I did, a small hole near the hem of the skirt, towards the right hand side. I didn't notice it when I first received the dress, but it was there, hiding among the ruching. I wore it as was and hoped no one would notice, but it kind of sucked that I had to worry about that. When I returned it, I made sure to call RTR ahead of time to let them know about the hole. Let's just say I wasn't impressed that they told me I didn't have to worry since I'd gotten the $5 insurance for small damages. GIRL, I RECEIVED the dress in that condition. You should be hoping I tell *you* not to worry. For $75, I think I can dare to dream the dress comes without holes. Was I really supposed to call you Saturday night on Memorial Day weekend? Like someone was going to be there? Please. Anyway ladies, check your dresses thoroughly as soon as you get them and just leave them a voicemail if they don't pick up. At least that way it'll be on record that you received damaged goods. And if you see another XS Indigo Fireworks Dress with a small hole near the hem, it probably means they still haven't fixed it.

Would LOVE to give this dress a great review but umm... RTR sent me the WRONG Laila Azhar dress! Same cut and style pretty much, just different color. They sent me the really bright all blue one with a black shoulder piece. The dress did fit great though so I'm assuming this one would have too. Unfortunately I couldn't wear the dress that they sent so I had to scrounge around for something else to wear. :(

I love this dress! It fits really well and the rouching hides the problem areas in the tummy and thighs. I rented the S and XS and though the XS was difficult to get on since it was tight, the XS looked better than the S. The length was appropriate for my fiance's 10 year high school reunion. My curves looked great!

Really comfortable and flattering in all the right places!
I had them send the XS and S after reading reviews that said it stretched, but I ended up wearing the S. The XS was just a little too tight to be comfortable. I'm usually a 0/2, though, so I was a little surprised by that. I'm thankful that they send 2 sizes! The dress hit me at about the knee. Definitely an easy fit, though, that would probably fit a number of shapes. Looks awesome on curves.

Wore this to a friend's April wedding. May have felt slightly inappropriate for their Catholic ceremony, but the dress was perfect for the reception. Although spanx were a God-send, with the mutliple layers of the dress, I felt like I had a lot on, and slightly bulky from that. Overall, great dress.

I enjoyed wearing this dress. The 0 fit like a glove and hit my legs mid-thigh, making this dress appropriate for formal occasions. My only concern is that the dress made me appear too much like a "straight line," since my body type is already straight & narrow, AND the bottom is tulip-shaped. Overall, beautiful dress, beautiful colors.

Hugs you in all the right places... will stand out until the next reunion... 10 yrs away! lol
I wore this dress to my 10 year High School Reunion - and LOVED IT! It was the perfect dress to turn heads, without being the center of attention. I love the fit of it... the design is funky enough, but still classic... and the one shoulder is flattering on anyone! Wish it weren't so expensive on it's own - because I'd buy it!

I wore the Indigo Fireworks Dress the night I got engaged. I will always remember how special I felt that night! It's a year later and I still love this dress and wish I owned it.
The pattern is very flattering and the ruching on the sides make this the perfect dress for many body types. I loved the one shoulder and the material was soft/comfy.

All my friends asked about where I got this dress - they loved the idea of renting for all the weddings we're all going to (ie. can't wear the same dress twice!).
I wore this dress out for a bachelorette party in Mexico. It was perfect for the occasion - it can be dressed up or down. I'm 5'3" and usually wear a size 6, and the dress was about to my knees - I had hoped for something a little shorter, but it worked fine. The dress is very fitted, especially on the rear, so beware if that's not your favorite body part! The top with the one shoulder design was very comfortable, no gaping, pulling, discomfort at all.
