I usually wear a 6 but the 4 was perfect. Beading was amazing and a great length.

Beautiful dress

I wore this to a fall wedding which it was perfect for because of the sleeves. I am 5 months pregnant and this dress fit perfectly and was very comfortable.

Comfortable and beautiful!

I really liked the overall look of the dress. The size 6 was too small in the chest (and I am not large chested) but fit everywhere else better than the 8. I went with the 8 because it was very comfortable to wear; only downside was that it was not form fitting at all. Overall a very pretty dress!!

It was a gorgeous gown and made me feel beautiful

It was a little snug around my arm pits but other than that it was great.

Really pretty but runs big

This is a really prey dress but I decided to wear something from my closet instead because the size I ordered felt really big and wasn't flattering.

Beautiful conservative dress

This is a pretty dress if you're looking for a more conservative look. The sheer sleeves and embroidery are really pretty, but the dress is pretty loose with no shape from the waist down. It runs big. It didn't bother me since I was going for a more conservative look for this particular wedding. You could always wear a belt if you wanted to!

Black Frame Shift Dress

I rented this dress for my grad school graduation. It was exactly what I needed- something the color of black, flattering, and conservative. Overall this is a lovely dress, and there is a lot of little details that make it unique. I found it runs mainly true to size, but maybe on the side of a little large. I would size down as your back up.

Perfect party dress!

I love this dress it is absolutely perfect for a fun get together with family which is what I wore it to! The metallic detail makes the dress and its loose fit makes it a self conscious free dress. Great party dress!

The sleeves were a little tight under the arms, but other than that I loved it! Very easy to dance in.

Easy process and dress worked

Lace arms were just a touch snug but I could still move my arms easily and it wasn't an issue when dancing. Otherwise the dress was a perfect fit. I felt comfortable in it all night

Very Pretty & Comfortable Dress for Occasion

This was my first RTR experience. I needed a cocktail dress for a Las Vegas 40th birthday party. I sent my first choice back because of the poor fit. RTR sent me my second choice the following day. I was concerned that they only had a size 2 and that it would be too small. It was a little snug but it fit me and it was very comfortable the entire evening. In fact, many of my friends changed into more comfortable clothes later in the evening, however, I chose to leave my on because I was so comfortable in it. I was very pleased with my RTR experience.

Gala perfection!

Consistent with other reviews, I found the dress to be a bit tight in the bust (and I wouldn't consider myself particularly blessed in that area!) and arms, but it fit well everywhere else. My back-up size (10) wasn't available, so I wore the 8, and it turned out to be fine (and really not all that uncomfortable). Lots of compliments at the event and on social media! Good length, beautiful details, and great price! A great option for lots of different events, especially as it gets cooler - nice to have sleeves and not have to wear anything over the dress. Would recommend others rent this one for sure!

Great dress but tight through shoulders and arms

This would have been perfect for my event but the 8 was too tight through the shoulders and arms. I'm going to try the next size up, but I'm afraid it will be too baggy because the rest of the dress fit perfectly. I love the style because it has sleeves and is forgiving in all the right places without looking dowdy. It definitely looked like it had been worn a number of times.

Fun spin on the LBD

This dress was just what I was needing/wanting for a cocktail masquerade. Fit was true to size. I'm normally a 6 on top and an 8 on the bottom. The size 6 fit perfectly. Being 5'11" I was a little worried that the skirt would be too short, but it was just right, hitting two inches above my knee. Great for tall girls! I'd wear this dress again in a heartbeat. Just beware, there's no stretch to the dress.

Beautiful, but was too big to wear!

Loved this dress. I rented am 8 which is pretty usual for me, however it was way too big. I would suggest sizing down. I might try this dress again in the future.

Great details, Runs large!

This dress runs large, so I would recommend going a size down in back up! The detailing is really unique and great for that subtle edge. The dress fit was very comfortable and you can wear a standard bra! I would definitely rent this in my true size if it was available!

Versatile Dress

I found this dress to be a bit loose around the mid-back and hips, but it still had a nice shape, and I was very comfortable all night. I probably would have been fine going down a size, but for the shoulders. Mine are fairly broad and my arms are muscular, and they just fit comfortably in the size 8 sleeves. I'm sure they wouldn't have fit in a 6. Had the rest of the dress been any larger, or had it come down past just above my knees, it might have tipped into dowdy territory. But, all was fine. The dress seemed well-made. The material wasn't super-luxurious, but it definitely did the job.

This is prettier on than in the bag...don't skip trying it on!

I ended up with this because a rental went askue so it was sent as an option with many dresses. I would have worn a different dress but didn't travel with the right undergarments so I wore this instead. It is a very pretty party dress. Flattering if you are an hourglass girl like me. I would rent again in a smaller size as there was plenty of room in the dress I did wear. The sheer arms are pretty and flattering if you don't love your upper arms :) I do recommend it. It's conservative but not boring.

It was so comfortable and the slight shimmer and lace detail made this dress.

Fit perfect. I went a size down based on reviews and I was not disappointed. I loved that it was not tight around my middle. Great for the gala we attended and super easy to dance in. I didn't wear a bra, it would have been too tight in the bust. Elegant and fun dress!

Comfortable and fun

The arms were a little tight getting in to but once the dress was on the sleeves were fine. Loved how the skirt left a lot of room for my hips. I really liked this but the sleeves were a little itchy by the end of the night.

This would have been perfect, if only it fit.

After seeing the review that this dress ran large, I thought for sure the 12 would fit me and I even grabbed tthe size 10 just in case. When I tried on the 12, even after finding the well hidden side zipper, I couldn't get the dress past my shoulders and almost panicked that I was going to tear the dress attempting to take it off. I do have broad shoulders, but even so, when I put the dress up next to me I could see that it would have been very snug fitting had it made it past my shoulders which would not have been a good look for this dress. Others said it was forgiving - the under layment/slip was not so forgiving as the outter layer - I had been concerned the arms might be too tight, but they would've been absolutely fine for me and I do have fuller upper arms. The backup dress I bought at Nordstrom was a size 12 as well as the other 10 dresses I tried on - I only needed a larger size in one or 2 of those dresses. Had they offered this dress in a size 14, I would've ordered the 12 and the 14 yet I'm still not sure I would've been able to get the 14 past my shoulders due to the cut of the dress. The dress itself was just what I was looking for - it would've been very flattering and very different than any of the other dresses at the wedding. I'm STILL bummed about it. Although I'm barely 5'1", the dress hit just above the knee which is exactly what I was looking for. For someone taller it might be cut shorter than you expect. At or below my knee would've made me look short/squat. I would've given this 5 stars had the fit been better. It would've been very comfortable - the outer lacey layer was softer than I expected (sometimes they can be scratchy feeling). I saw this dress on the online Saks site and it was listed as $650 which is why the rental is much higher than other dresses - it's beautiful but they have no right asking that much money for this dress - it's made of a polyester blend and not silk..

I got many compliments on this dress. It is forgiving from the waist down and mostly comfortable.

For ladies with more up top, size up. This was tight across my chest, while not terrible uncomfortable, I could not raise my arms up.

I enjoyed my first time experience with RTR. Will definitely do it again!

I rented this for a work function so the style was very appropriate. I choose size 6 and 8. I went with size 8 as even though the six fit the chest area was quite tight. Even the eight was tight and I felt it flattened that area as opposed to enhancing it. Definitely size up if you are ample in the chest area. With that said it was otherwise a comfortable dress and I received numerous compliments throughout the night. I paired the dress with shooties to give it an edgy look and kept the accessories to a minimum as it has a lot going on with the detailing.

This was for my husband's annual holiday party, which is an extravagant affair.

I typically wear a size 8, and this dress fit everywhere except the chest. If you wear a 36 or 38 C, consider going up a size (the 10 wasn't available the weekend I rented this.)

Nice dress for an office party

I liked this dress, i usually wear size 6, and i ordered size 6, but it was little tied on my bust area. After reading the review i ordered a back up size 4, but should go with one size up. I'm 130 lb, 5"1 and my bust is 36B.

No stretch at all. Not for busty girls

This dress was very pretty, but I expected some stretch in the bust. There is no give in the fabric at all and I couldn't even zip the side zipper to the top. I'm currently a size 12 with 36DDD bust.

I usually wear an 8, but this was a little tight in the bust. As usual with rent the runway dresses, I got plenty of compliments! I wore it with tights and ankle boots. Will rent this one again!

Cute LBD with a little shine!

I rented this dress as a back up for one of my other dresses. I ended up not wearing the other dress so I'm glad I had this one! It is a super cute little black dress with a little shine to it. It is pretty flowy, which I didn't mind, but I don't think it necessarily did anything for my shape. The arms/arm pit area was a little tight, but not totally uncomfortable.

Great, flattering, comfortable dress

This would travel extremely well. The 8 was a little wide through the hips for me but that helped make it comfortable. Only negative: there was a staple (!) in one sleeve. It didn't damage the sheer netting but I have no idea why it would have been there.

Easy wear with a bit of flair!

Didn't end up wearing this one as it was my back up, but it was a hard choice. It fit just a little tight through the chest and shoulders, and I am pretty small chested and not broad shouldered, but it would have been an easy to wear dress with a nice flow/flair to the skirt. Elegant.

So happy to be able to wear a Marchesa!

Gorgeous detail on this dress. My arms and shoulders made for a really tight fit. I wore it but feared one wrong move and I would tear the sleeves. Perfect length for my long legs, and the overall feel was great. Next time, I would size up.

The perfect date night

I rented two dresses for a date night- this being one of them. I ended up not wearing this one, it was a little tight, but especially tight in the bust and arms (not good for broader shoulder and bigger busted girls). It is a beautiful dress though- just size up!

I received may compliments on the dress at my formal event. Friends couldn't believe I rented it.

A really comfortable, classic dress. I am 5'1" and usually wear a 4, but the 2 fit perfectly.
