Beautiful and well made dress. The color is so flattering.
Tight around the waist in the size 4. I hover between a 4 and 6, but overall beautiful. The boning in the neck area is great and can be curved to fit the angle that you want. Really loved this dress.m

I wore this for my maid of honor dress - was perfect!
The dress worked out wonderfully. The off-the-shouler straps had wire to keep them shaped, so I didn't have to worry about them sliding around. It was a cool, different look, and the front peplum panels were also forgiving after dinner!

I couldn't wear the dress because it was too small so I ended up wearing another dress from my order
It runs small and it doesn't really work with someone who is chesty.

Nice dress!
Rented this for my husband's work Christmas party. It was comfortable and fit well with a little give to account for dinner and my 5 week postpartum belly and chest.

Although a slightly strange fit, running small on the top and large on the bottom...I got compliments all night! Perfect dress for a Mad Men themed event at a Museum.

Amazing dress. Fits like a glove! Beautiful color. Wore to a fall NYC wedding.
Pro: covers the knees. You can dance all night long. Cons. None. I loved it. My husband said it was my best rental yet!!!

It was my engagement photo shoot.
I wore it for my engagement shoot — love the color. The shoulders were a little big for me and same with the hem. I used fashion tape to bring the skirt up a bit. The dress was beautiful despite the fit.

Good deal for the price, but not a showstopper
Color? Amazing. But it is like the parts of this dress are strangers forced to live with each other in a tiny apartment. Awkward. The top is great, but it doesn't flow well with the peplum, which tends to overwhelm the skirt. The peplum does hide many a sin (or wide hip), but it's not the right proportion to work with the gathering on the bodice. Overall, it was fine, and it photographed beautifully at the wedding, but I won't rent it again.

I didn't end up wearing this dress because both sizes I ordered were too small. Be wary if you have a full bust, may not be the best fit for you. The color was beautiful though!

Classy and unique
I was happy with this dress, however it wasn't as cute as I thought it would be. I did like how unique it was and the shoulder line was fun, however the wiring in the shoulder piece was a little awkwardly bent from previous wear. The fabric was really nice quality. Over all I was happy with the affordable and quick rental for this event

Did not wear this dress for a June wedding.
I ended up not wearing this dress, but going out and buying one at the last minute. As other customers have noted, the material is flimsy and I had a hard time zipping up the zipper. I returned them because they didn't fit well, and the dress does look more matronly as another reviewer also noted. I had high hopes for this dress but don't think it was really what I wanted for a summertime wedding. I look forward to trying other dresses/outfits from RTR but this dress was not a good first-time rental.

This dress made me feel like a princess
The neckline on this dress is stunning. I felt so elegant and classy. The material feels very expensive, and the cut is very flattering. On me the skirt length hit just below the knee. I will rent again. I might size down next time as it was borderline too roomy.

Gorgeous color and quality... came with a rip
Beautiful dress but it unfortunately came with a rip near the zipper--- had to use saftey pins to keep it together, as it was too last minute to order a replacement.

Great nonblack option for a 7:00 wedding. Thick material, best for fall or winter. I didn't go w/ a necklace b/c the neckline was so elegant. Just added statement earrings.

I loved the color, it was beautiful.
However, since I have broader shoulders I wasn't in love with the way the sleeves set on my body type. But it still fit nice enough to rock it at the wedding so that is what I did. I danced salsa with it, wore it for pictures, and made it to the end of the night without any dress mishaps, so how much more can you ask of a dress right? Overall a good experience with the dress.

Loved it! Wore it to a wedding a summer.
The color is a bit brighter than in the picture and not too heavy. The top of the dress runs a bit small and because it's an asymmetrical fit can be a bit tough to zip up by yourself.

Perfect for Mad Men themed party.
I rented this dress for a 60's Mad Men themed party - perfect for the occasion. The fabric was thick and a little itchy. In real life I don't think it was the most flattering dress but I got a lot of compliments.

This dress was stylish, a perfect plum for the wedding color and formal enough for the occasion.
This dress fit beautifully. It does run small - in most clothes I am usually a size 4. It was a great dress to wear because it is forgiving in the tummy area, but still gives a slim profile due to the pencil skirt. The fabric has great detailing and the layers of peplum are really unique. Everyone loved this dress and told me I looked amazing. The bride that I was a bridesmaid for was very happy I wore the dress in her wedding. This dress was awesome!!

The dress is very flattering at the neckline, waist and provides give at the stomach because of the extra material.

Far too long. Looked like I was trying on my mother's clothes.
I loved this dress when I saw it online. I read all of the reviews and ordered the 8 and the 10. The waist on the 8 was tiny. I'm not the smallest person, but usually a pretty standard 8. The 10 was still snug, but zippable. I didn't wear it though because it was way too long. The dress fell well below my knees and looked like I was playing dress up. I ended up re-wearing a dress I'd worn to a previous wedding.

Lots of light, puffy fabric around the middle.
Fit was slightly large. The fabric is light but there is a lot of it around middle and hips so not particularly flattering if the dress does not fit skin tight. However, the zipper is EXTREMELY difficult to pull up (requires 2 people), so wearing a size down is challenging unless you have a small rib cage.

Formal yet fun, really great style
Somehow I thought I would fit into a size 4 or 2 in this dress. Luckily I got into the size 4 and it looked great! I love the cut around the shoulders.

Not right for me
Meh. I'm not sure why this didn't work, it just didn't. I couldn't even zip up the ten, though I normally wear eight. And it wasn't for being too tight; I had the space, it just wouldn't zip. The boning in the shoulders that should give it that nice structural look just sat oddly on me. Maybe this would go better on a more straight and narrow kind of girl. Too bad. The color is nice and I liked the silhouette. Just not for me!

Fabulous dress with stretch!
The bust fit snugly and allowed for a normal bra. The bottom was very snug around the hips but the peplum covered it well. It also seemed to stretch a little as the night went on. As others mentioned the zipper is really hard to maneuver and you will need help. I received multiple compliments on the dress. My normal size was not available but I am glad I got this dress!!

More office attire than party.
This was the dress I rented as a backup, and I loved the style! I rented both the size 4 and the size 6, and found that the size 6 was slightly more comfortable, given that the fabric could be pretty stretchy and it was a bit loose all over. The off-the-shoulder neckline was perfect, and the plunge was not too low. It was very structured, and even though I walked around in the dress, it did not slip down my shoulders. The extra fabric covered my tummy, and I didn't need to wear Spanx. However, since I am much shorter than the model, the dress fell to just under my knee and looked better when I folded the hem under. I ended up wearing my first rental, but if I wore this style, I would've gone with the size 4. I would definitely suggest this for an engagement dinner or church event. It's not something that I would've been able to dance in.

Great neckline, and I received a ton of compliments.
The best part of this dress is the neckline. I'm full-busted and so the dress was a little snug (the fabric has no give) at the chest, but fit great everywhere else. The peplum made it really flattering, though, as you can see in the picture, the backside of the fabric shows at one part in the front which I thought was a little odd. It was definitely more of a true purple that the pictures on the model show.

This dress not for anyone with a bust and curves combined, I could get it on, but it flattened my chest and was not flattering. Better on a smaller bust line.

Better for fall/winter and not what I expected
I thought this dress looked beautiful in the photos and rented for a summer wedding. Unfortunately it didn't work for many reasons - it was too small in the bust while the hips were too large, the fabric is on the heavier side and this type of fabric doesn't look right for summer wear, and the color is a much brighter purple than it appeared in the photos ( don't like the color). I didn't end up wearing it.

I got many compliments about the dress. The neckline was different and fabulous.
I am smaller in the top than the bottom. I choose the size 2 since the top fit best. The over skirt makes the bottom more forgiving. Very classy length and style. Color is more purple in person that original pictures. Very flattering!

So unique, gorgeous color
Like some other reviewers have wrote the color is much more berry than deep purple. Regardless it looked gorgeous on and was so unique compared to the other dresses. I did not wear this dress with heels and regret it because it hit way below my knee. It is very flattering and a great choice for a formal event

Wore this dress for a formal affair and loved it! Color is very pretty, great structure, flattering
The straps sit nicely off the shoulder and the flexible plastic sewn inside helps keep them in place without falling. The fabric is pretty lightweight which keeps the peplum from looking too extreme. I loved how the front crosses over, while the fitted waist gives the top a nice structure. The zipper is incredibly hard to zip up on your own so make sure you have someone to help dress you! The size fit perfectly though and I received so many compliments.

Beautiful dress, but construction was disappointing.
This is a beautiful dress in person, the fabric and color are really exceptional. My only complaint that the zipper was sticky and not reliable. I ended up having to wear my back up dress to the wedding as the zipper would not work (on or off) on the day of the event. It was really a shame because it was really a striking dress.

30th birthday party dress
This dress was very flattering for my pear shape and the neckline created a beautiful line. I added a sparkly belt to take it up a notch. It is fitted through the bodice and waist, but the peplum was forgiving for my stomach and hips. The fabric was flimsier than expected and fashion tape did not stick to it very well. The straps are shaped with plastic inserts and are a bit big, so they didn't stay put. I had to readjust them over and over. The zipper also gets stuck really easily when you are zipping it up. But overall, I was pretty pleased with this dress.

Lovely dress; runs a bit smaller in the hips than the fit guidelines indicate.
I rented two sizes of this dress back in February to wear for a cocktail reception the night before my wedding last weekend. RTR called me two days before to tell me that the larger size would not be available due to damage, and I had four hours to pick out a new dress. Eek! They did send me the smaller size in addition to the replacement dresses, but due to my larger hips I was barely able to get it on. The fabric and color are gorgeous and I'm sure it would be beautiful on someone a little less endowed than I. Thankfully one of the replacement dresses worked out great, but I'm not sure I would use Rent the Runway again for such an important event without many backups; it was incredibly stressful to have to find a new dress on such short notice on a day spent picking up my parents from the airport and running wedding errands two days before the event. The customer service reps were wonderful, however, once I got them on the phone.
