The fit was exactly what I expected. I did go with the four so I would have a little more hip room.

Beautiful lace dress-- but needed more shape

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I ordered this for a wedding in Miami, and although the dress itself was beautiful (color and lace even prettier in person than shown in the pictures), I had to send it back without wearing it. The dress runs very large and gave no shape (as it is very straight cut). I would have needed it cinched in at the waist to be able to wear it without feeling huge. RTR was great about my return and offered to overnight the 4, but bad a daytime wedding that it may not have arrived in time. I am not sure the 4 would have worked, as it was still snug in the shoulders/chest-- not the dress for me

I wore this dress to my wedding party that was western themed, and it was a hit!! Cute and comfy!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I ordered a size 0 and a size 2, but ended up wearing the size 2. The 0 was really tight under my arms, and the 2 was a little big in the chest. I had to wear a different bra to make the size 2 work, but it looked fine! Also, I saw some questions about what bra to wear with this dress- the dress has snaps on the inside for your straps so you can wear a normal bra and not have to worry about it hanging out! The dress is definitely a shift, but it has some shape to it! Enough to feel comfortable eating and drinking, but also enough to be flattering. Overall, I really enjoyed this dress!

Great Spring Wedding Dress

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this dress as a back-up for an April wedding. The ceremony was outside in the evening so this dress was a great combination of fun and light but formal enough for an evening reception. I loved the color of the dress and the lace was beautiful (and in great condition!). I'm usually between a 4 and 6 but I ordered smaller for this one because it's a shift dress and I didn't want it to be too "sack-like". The 4 ended up fitting everywhere except that it was a little tight in the shoulders/bust area. Granted I have fairly broad shoulders for a girl, but it would could have fit better. I ended up adding a belt I already owned just to give it a waist, but it was definitely a great dress!

I absolutely LOVED this dress! I had so many compliments all night long.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress runs true to size. I am rather busty, but small waisted...The 0 fit, but it was tight in the arms because of my chest. It is a shift dress so it doesn't hug your curves and was extremely comfortable to dance the night away. Perfect dress for a formal, wedding or a day at the horse track. The lace detail was gorgeous and the color is much more vibrant in person.

Loved this dress and rent the runway

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I was afraid that the dress would be a little short but it was the perfect modest length. I loved the design of the back of the dress. The dress was a little more green than what appears in pictures but it was beautiful, I wanted to keep it! Can be dressed up or dressed down depending on accessories. I received compliments on the dress all night. Great rent the runway experience, will definitely do it again for the next time I need a dress for an occasion.

I wore this to my college graduation, and it was the perfect lightweight material for underneath my gown. The dress up close is really 2 colors; a greenish layer underneath and a turquoise lace overlay. Like the other reviewers said, it doesn't have a ton of shape but it is very comfortable and I didn't mind that, although I wore a size 4 and am generally a 6 in more form fitting Lilly dresses.

Beautiful shift dress with a strange fit

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I wore this dress to my graduation and while it certainly is beautiful and I would recommend it, just be aware that it has a very strange fit. I say it runs true to size because it both runs big and small at the same time! I usually wear a 4 and ordered a 2 as my backup size. The 4 was a little bit tight around the shoulders but really ill fitting around the torso. I understand that it's a shift dress and isn't supposed to give you shape, but the material bunched up in weird places and it was simply too large around my tummy. The 2 was even tighter in the shoulders but fit well around the torso. That being said, the 2 looked great and was comfortable for the entire day. It's a beautiful spring and summer color and can be dressed up or down to make it work for any occasion! I wore it with some gold jewelry and sandals since we were on grass, but it would look killer with some gold heels or cowboy boots as well!

Perfect for summer wedding!

This was my first rental from RTR and I'm in love! I rented this for a wedding and I got complimented on it all night. I ordered a size 4 and a size 6, I ended up wearing the 6 because the 4 was a little tight across the chest. It was very comfortable and the color is beautiful. It is a little greener than I thought, but still gorgeous. The rental process was so easy as well as the return process. I don't think I'll ever buy a dress again!

Great summer dress!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this for a rehearsal dinner. It is a beautiful color, and the detail is more beautiful in person than it looks online. I rented a 4 and a 6. The 4 fit, but it was a little snug in the arm hole/chest area. I decided to wear the 6, but it was a little baggy (dress doesn't have much shape), so I wore a belt with it. Overall, I was really happy with the dress and received a lot of compliments on it.

Based on other reviews, I though I would need to wear the 12, as I have a larger chest, however, the 10 fit perfect. The size 12 was quite large in the waist and hip area. This dress was super comfortable and loved that my bra straps could be snapped into the dress! Many people complimented me (both at the wedding and via photos on Facebook) and said they loved my dress. This was my first experience with Rent the Runway and I will definitely come back!

I know shift dresses are meant to be straight, but usually I have some sort of shape in them. I had no shape at all in this dress- I felt like I had on a potato sack. I think this would look better on taller girls, as I am only 5 feet tall, so it was not only shapeless but too long! Too bad because I love Lily.

I LOVED this dress for a wedding at the Breakers in Palm Beach! The color is gorgeous, and it is a beautiful dress. It was a touch too big, but I would say overall runs true to size. I am 5/2 and 105 lbs, and I think a size 00 would have fit me better. This was just the slightest bit too long for me.

Arm holes run small - if you're athletic and not petite, beware.

I was not able to wear this dress because the arm holes and chest were very tight. Depending on the designer, I'm usually a 10 or 12 with C size chest. This dress "fit" but not properly. Unfortunately I had to return it.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This was sent as a backup to another dress I rented for a spring wedding. I ended up going with the other dress, but this one was super cute. It was very comfortable and easily accessorize-able. It was a little "drapey" on me, so adding a belt would be a must in my case, but I can see from other people that they didn't need one, so it's up to you. Soft material and comfortable, easily something you could wear for a long day of events.

Size worn: NONE
Overall fit: True to Size

Unfortunately I wasn't able to wear this dress. Gorgeous color, great look, and the bra snaps are a nice touch. Had hoped the size 12 would fit but the dress lining made it snug in my hips. I have a true hourglass shape. It fit as far as the bust and arm holes were concerned but it was unflattering because it made me look like I have a large stomach (definitely not where I carry my weight) due to it being tight in my hips.

Rented this for a date-gorgeous shift dress with Aqua lace, pulls a bit short on me since I have a long torso but it was actually a perfect length. The arm holes are a tad tight, and the neckline is a bit boring (scoops aren't my favorite) but such a pretty color and flattering fit. Will rent again.

Really pretty color!

Overall fit: True to Size

I wore this dress for my bridal shower, and I absolutely loved the color! Perfect for a spring shower, it's got more blue detail than you can tell from the pictures, but that makes it that much nicer. I took one star off simply because (like other reviewers said) it was tight in the armpits, but once I was at the party I didn't really notice. I didn't feel like my shape was lost, which can happen in dresses like this since I have some hips. Overall, I really liked the dress!
