Many compliments!

Great dress. Really cool color. Made me feel very thin because the waist is great. Also very comfortable because the fabric stretches - great for dancing! I wore a regular push up bra because the top is definitely chesty. My size 8 came with a weird white residue on it as well as some small holes. Customer service was amazing however and they offered to overnight me a new dress or refund my money. Very impressed.

I got so many compliments!
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
As the other reviews state, this dress is very big in the waist. I have a larger bottom and small waist, but was able to make it work. I wore shape wear which helped. You do need to have something up top to fill the dress out, in my opinion. The color is actually a true purple, more so than blue. I thought it was too long at first, as it was only a semi-formal wedding, but it was just right. It looked classy, elegant, and sophisticated, which is exactly what I was looking for in a RTR dress!

Beautiful dress! Perfect for a wedding
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I loved this dress so much, I wish I could have kept it! The 6 fit perfectly with some spanx underneath to smooth everything out. It had some stretch so was super comfortable for wearing almost all day through the ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, and dancing into the night. The length hit me right at the knees, and the neckline was just so that it was sexy but not too revealing (appropriate for church!). Other people have said that they could not wear a normal bra with this but I wore a nude bra and it was fine. I guess it depends on the type of bra. Overall, I highly recommend this dress!

This dress was perfect for a formal wedding.

Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I received this dress at last minute after my size wasn't available in my original dress, but I ended up loving it. It's a flattering cut, great color, and was perfect for hitting the dance floor all night at a wedding. It fits relatively true to size, with a little bit of extra room/fabric in the midsection. I paired it with Kate Spade chandelier earrings and a Nicole Miller bracelet.

I felt the best dressed on New Years!!
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress made me feel so beautiful. It fit perfectly. I am 5'2" and it came just below my kneecap. I like that the dress squeezes in at the waist to accentuate your waist. I have D size breasts so the top was not a problem for me, it fit like a glove. I am so happy I had this dress and received compliments all night long.

Very flattering dress!
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this for a wedding and got tons of compliments! Had to use the complimentary wardrobe tape to tack down the bust on the inside or it folded out a little at the seam, but everything else was great. This dress was comfortable, feminine and flattering - worked perfectly for this event. I have nothing but great things to say about Rent the Runway-- this was my first time trying this service, and I will definitely do it again! I also talked it up to several other gals at the wedding - fantastic idea, fantastic service, easy and fun -- nothing but positive.

Fits loose through the stomach/waist area (well, I do have a pretty small waist though!) But this dress is amazing for curvy women! You definitely need a strapless bra. And it's not for the ladies with a smaller chest. But I LOVED this dress. It was cute, comfortable, and I was able to dance the night away!

I got so many compliments on this dress! It hit me at the knee, and I would definitely recommend a nubra as the straps and neckline do not work with a regular bra. The fabric is tight, but it stretches, and the color is a brighter purple in person!

RTR came through again!
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
Originally, I rented this to wear to a wedding, but felt that the fabric was a bit to cottony-casual. Nonetheless, I was able to make use of this dress for a morning church service in a somewhat formal setting. It was subdued enough with a wrap that it still looked classic. My only issue was the length, I love wearing shorter dresses when going out, but wish there were a few more options for knee length dresses for taller girls. I'm 5'10" and when kneeling in the pews it was a little dicey! All in all another terrific RTR experience!

This dress did not fit me right. It was way too small in the chest...I wear a 38 DDD. I could not zip it up. Also, the straps are a little strange as they are twisted on purpose.

Got to try this dress thanks to Serena at RTR
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was sent as a back up since my original was not available. I only got to try the size 6, but it fit great! It is very fitted (and flattering) at the waist. I was worried as I was having trouble getting it on, but once on it felt great! I only chose another style over this dress because of the color. I am fair skinned and a bolder color made me look a little better :-) Beautiful dress though.

Lovely color, very flattering
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress to my friend's wedding. I felt like it was very flattering, the waist nips in a bit and the length was good on me (I'm 5'5"). The top definitely had some cleavage, I'm a 34DD. The skirt did require ironing when it arrived. I wore black open toed shoes to the ceremony and sparkly gold shoes to the reception. This dress is a little more interesting than a plain sheath dress and I felt like it was a good rental.

This dress is made out of a stretchy silk! I knew I would be dancing all night at the wedding reception, so I wanted to be comfortable. It was such a wonderful fabric. The dress does run a little large. I normally wear a 4 but went with the 2 in this dress. So comfortably and so classy!

Pretty dress, beautiful color
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I liked this dress a lot. The fabric was very luxurious and the color was stunning. The folds on the waist added a bit of extra bulk and the dress was a little too big. This dress was a last minute replacement because they didn't have my alternate size dress in stock. I usually wear an 8 in Lela Rose and this was a 10, so it makes sense that it was too big. I ended up wearing the other dress because the cut was more flattering and had a better fit.

I wore this to a friend's wedding where I was her personal attendant. It was perfect for all the running around, bending and tasking that I was doing that day. The color was lovely and fit was beautiful. The straps were a little big and fell a bit, but overall a great dress. I would order this dress again. Another great RTR moment!

This was my second choice from RTR for a friends wedding. Normally wear a size 8, but the 6 fit like a glove! I received so many compliemnts through out the night it was great! The fabric does give a bit but I still wore shapewear for the smooth line effect. This dress is a great option for women with fuller bust. The color is more royal purple than blue.

This dress fits well and I found it to be true to size. I found the color to be closer to purple than blue, which is good to know for those trying to match accessories without seeing the dress. Overall, I'd highly recommend it. I received many compliments and found Rent-the-Runway to be a great experience.

Great Service!
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
For a dress that as expensive as it is, I was a tad dissappointed in the quality of the material; I'm not sure whether to attribute that to the fact that the dress has been worn numerous times. Nevertheless, the color is beautiful; very similar to what is pictures. It's a great alternative to a black dress without being too bold. The neckline is very flattering to larger chested women. This dress definitely runs big so I'd size down. Since i'm a big large chested my top is typically an 8 and my pant size is a 6 but I could have easily went for a 6 in this dress - it also has stretch in the material. This dress definitely accturates your waist and could definite hide any lower stomach areas of concurs if you were to wear spans! I did not end up wearing this dress because I did want something that was a tad tighter and the size 6 in this dress was unavailable.

Great dress, incredibly flattering.
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Loved this dress! Wore it to a wedding and it was perfect for both the ceremony at the church and the reception. Super comfy too. My bra straps showed a bit so I ended up not wearing a bra--the dress is supportive enough that you don't really need one. A strapless would work too. I thought it ran a bit on the large side--if you are small-busted and on the narrow side, you might want to go a size down. The 8 was far far too big. The 6 fit well but could have been a little more snug up top. Overall, though, felt like a million bucks!

Lovely dress, perfect for gala dinner
Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size

The 10 was a little snug in the hips, the 12 a little large in the bust. Had I thought of it and seen the fashion tape in the box, I could have used that to adjust the fit. Still, I loved the dress, very classy, and I will definitely try RTR again.

This is a lovely dress, but as I suspected with this cut, it is wasn't very flattering on my A-cup bust. I had to use all of the tape included in the dress kit to keep the top from falling open. I was still happy to wear the dress. I got a few compliments on the pretty, interesting color.

Zero was too big!
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this dress for a wedding I attended. Good thing I rented another back-up dress with this one, because the size zero that came was incredibly too big! The dress was wearing me - I felt like an old lady. I normally wear a size zero - one in pants, shorts , etc. I am 5'2 , 32 C, and this dress was almost like I could fit another person in it! I would definitely suggest you get the extra size to double check to make sure it will fit! The dress looks beautiful on the model and beautiful on the hanger , just not on me. Enjoy your event ladies, enjoy the dress!
