Great Birthday dinner dress.
The fit was almost perfect. I am short and curvy and it hit all the right places. My only problem was the shoulder area was a little roomy (I am only 5'1") Plenty of room for my chest and I was able to wear a regular bra which was awesome.

Gorgeous dress
Too tight and short for me! I have wide hips and this was not the best choice but I made it work. Would not rent again bc of my body type and the cut.

Easy dress to wear no complicated undergarments to worry about
This dress was perfect for an outdoor beach wedding I went to in August. First I could wear a normal bra, the dress covered everything. My bra straps never showed. For me that's the biggest challenge when dress shopping. The dress itself fit very well in all the right places, somewhat sexy without looking trashy. I didn't get any compliments however I thought I looked great!

I love this dress!
I rented this dress for my boyfriend's birthday and don't want to return it! I got a lot of compliments on it. I am between and 4 and 6 but chose the 4. If you're a large C/D cup size and don't want it to squeeze you, go a size up. The dress was a great length and had a touch of shimmer.

This dress was adorable, really great color and fit. Received tons of compliments!
I ordered both a 6 and 8, I ended up going with the 8 only because it was a little bit comfier and I'm hiding a little baby bump! The color really pops and the length was great. I was initially worried it might be to short, but it was perfect. Highly recommend!

A little tight in the hips
Beautiful color! The top fit well but if you have hips and you're uncomfortable with your belly, I'd be weary about renting. Not very forgiving at all.

I usually struggle finding dresses that are a good length for me but this one was perfect. I fit true to size and showed off my figure well. The color is so vibrant! I received so many compliments and I felt like I stood out!

Great Color!
This dress is very cool. I rented it for my bachelorette party as a back-up. I didn't end up wearing it, but it did seem to run a little small, which I had read in other reviews, but the next size up was not available. It is shimmery without being too crazy and the color is a great shade of berry pink!

So gorgeous in person
When this first arrived I was a little disappointed. It looked "sequiny" in pics and wasn't in person. But once I tried it on I was blown away. It is SO gorgeous on and I got tons of compliments. The color is amazing and it's surprisingly very comfortable. I am typically a 2 or 4 in dresses and while the 2 fit me, it was very very tight. If anything I would suggest ordering up for your back up size. It is a shorter dress but definitely nothing crazy. I wore 4 inch heels and it was still very wedding appropriate. For reference I am 5'5

The fit and color were amazing. I wore this to a cocktail party and received tons of compliments on dress. It fit great, almost like a T-shirt dress but more form fitting and couldn't beat the price.

The color sells the dress! Very vibrant, very bright & definitely makes you stand out from the crowd. It's a really comfortable dress, and runs true to size. It's an affordable rental that I would rent again.

Didn't end up getting to wear as it arrived with a rip in the seam.
I am normally a 2-4 but rented a 6, fit almost perfect. Color is true, fabric is nice material, not cheap at all. Wasn't able to wear do to it arriving with a rip but Rent the Runway made it right, will definitely use again.

Perfect dress for a bridal shower
I rented this for my soon to be daughter-in-laws bridal shower. Loved it. Great quality. I'm glad I had a size 10 as a back up because it ran a tiny bit small I thought. I received several compliments.

Amazing dress!
I rented this dress for a bridal shower and it was perfect. The length was great and I wore it with 2 inch wedges. The cap sleeve kept is classy but still moveable and comfy. It's semi fitted so you can eat all you want and still look good. The color was so vibrant and I got tons of compliments! Highly recommend this dress! You won't regret it!

Great color, very comfortable
This dress was perfect for a spring wedding! The color was amazing and I got lots of compliments, definitely pairs well with silver jewelry and shoes. I could have worn the 2 but since it was a family wedding I went with the 4 which was not as short or tight and just overall more comfortable for dancing. Love that I could wear a normal bra with it.

Beautiful Color
I really loved this dress, super light weight and easy to move in. I typically am a size 6 but it was tighter than I wanted it to be. Material is pretty thin so I opted for the 8 for mor comfort without feeling I need to be sucking in the entire night. Many compliments on the color. Danced the entire night and was able to get low since the length was not too short. Great rental!

Super cute, fitted dress. The color is outstanding and the cut is very flattering.
I wore the 8 though it was a bit snug in places, it fit better than the 10. I loved this dress. The fit was great, very flattering and received loads of compliments from strangers. I would purchase this dress to dress up or down!

Gorgeous - runs small
Absolutely beautiful fabric and color - the photo does not do it justice. I'm an hourglass size 12, and this was too small across the bust and hips, so unfortunately I couldn't wear it. Go up a size and you won't be disappointed.

Way too short
I'm just shy of 5'10, so it's hard to find dresses that are an appropriate length. This was a mini on me (was hoping for mid thigh at least), and therefore would have been inappropriate for a bridal shower brunch. The color was fantastic and I loved the cap sleeves. I did think the fit was overall snug as well as short, so in general it was just too much for the event.

Beautiful dress, many compliments!! Would highly recommend!
Absolutely loved this dress! I received compliments all night and felt great in it. Seems to definitely run on the small side so went with the bigger size. There is not much "give" to the fabric. I loved the silver shimmer to it and wore metallic shoes to match. Would rent again!

Oddly sized
I normally wear a size 6 or 8 dress. Neither the 8 or the 10 fit in my hips. I have a size 34F chest and the size 10 was too big in the chest, but too tight in my stomach and hips. I LOVED the look and quality of the dress It was better than the pictures showed. I wish that the material had a little stretch so I could have worn it. If you are large chested with a tiny waist/hips, this dress will be perfect for you. If it had fit, I would have been happy to wear it. It is a beautiful dress.

It fit like a gem!
I wore this dress for my senior hoco and i honestly wished I owned it. It was a little longer than my taste so I rolled it up underneath and used fashion tape to make it temporarily shorter. most dresses squeeze my bust but this one fit perfectly

Favorite rental so far!
I've been a long time RTR user, and this may be one of my top favorite rentals so far. So cute, excellent color, and comfortable fit! Runs true to size. I was a bit over my normal weight at the time, and this dress made me feel comfortable and confident!

Beautiful dress!
I rented this dress for my husbands 40th birthday party. It was perfect! I received so many compliments. I am 5'8' tall, 175 lbs. and bra size 36 D. I rented size 14 and ordered size 12 for back up (wishful thinking probably). I ended up wearing the 14 and it fit great. It wasn't snug anywhere and I felt like I could dance and move around without being restricted at all. I will definitely rent from RTR again!

I wasn't as excited for this RTR EXPERIENCE like I was 4 my last 1. I'll pick a better 1 nxt time.
Honesty I picked this dress based on the reviews I saw all ages wearing this dress so I thought it would be perfect for my girlfriend bday dinner at buddakan. But the truth is I felt like it was an old lady dress. I didn't receive any complaints. I'm 5' 9" and weight about 150. I wore the 8 and the shoulders were tight. I'm very big in hip and butt area but that part fit good. The silver details are very visible in this dress. I brought gold because the photos didn't seem like the silver was strong in the dress. But overall love RTR BUT wont rent this again.

New Years Eve Winning Dress
GET THIS DRESS!!!!! I rented this dress for New Year's Eve. I was nervous that it would be too summery, but it was GREAT! It was so comfy and had a subtle sparkle. I wore with fine glitter sling backs and it was phenomenal. I am pretty consistently a 2 and wore the 2. The 4 probably would've been fine also, but I didn't try it on. I'm a Lilly lover and FOR SURE suggest this dress! I am keeping a watchful eye on eBay to purchase one I liked it so much. I got so many compliments and seriously felt fantastic wearing it.
