Too many compliments to count

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was drop dead gorgeous. Everything about it was perfect. I am normally a size 4, but they only had a size 2 in stock and I tried it. The 2 was perfect, so I guess it runs a bit large. The sleeves are hot despite being sheer. I wouldn't recommend it for an outdoor summer wedding, but if you have an event with AC, go for it!

Absolutely Stunning Dress!

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress was simply gorgeous. Wore this for my engagement party and felt incredible in it! Fits true to size, however the bust is quite fitted and was a bit too tight for me. Anything under a D-cup would most likely be just fine, though! I thought the fabric might be scratchy, but it wasn't at all! Loved all of the lace detailing; worked great with nude pumps and a statement necklace!

Don't usually go for princessy tulle, but man! This one is epically gorgeous.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Date
I usually wear a 4, but the sleeves were a tad bit loose (just enough to look bunchy), as was the waist. The 2 was snug in all the right places but still gave me enough freedom to move around. Wore this to an anniversary dinner date and I've never felt more elegant. Begs for a glass of champagne, this dress.

I was sent this as a backup dress. It is not my style at all but is really beautiful. I found the 14 to be tight in the rib cage, there is no stretch to the fabric. The sleeves and lace are beautiful.

STYLIST REVIEW

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
This dress is to die for! The detailing is so impressive I couldn't stop looking at it before trying it on. The fit is true to size and I would size up for back up just because I found the shoulders/arms very snug with little give. This would be excellent for any formal event. You can get away with any shoe, as this dress hits between mid-thigh and the knee, depending on your height.

Tons of compliments

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is gorgeous. I got so many compliments throughout the entire night, and it wasn't even my wedding. Like others have said, this fabric has very little give so maybe size up if you're on the cusp of sizes. Also, if you have larger arms the fabric will rub against the underside of your arm and may cause chafing. I had to be cognizant of this an remember to not let my arms rub against the fabric too much. Lastly, this dress is HOT. The fabric traps heat. Wouldn't recommend for an outdoor occasion. Overall, the dress is beautiful and I had a great night in it.

I ordered the 2 and the 4 but since this runs large I wish I had ordered the 0 and the 2 (even though I wear a 4!) The 2 as you can see was a nice fit and if you rent this dress you'll be guaranteed to get lots of compliments! A very luxe dress that works well in any season.

Beautiful dress for fall/winter

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I tried on this dress for my rehearsal dinner. It is a beautiful dress but it was unseasonably warm where I live so it was far too warm to wear. I ended up wearing a different option dress. The sleeves are a little itchy but worth it as the dress is gorgeous. This does run a little small. I am usually a comfortable 6 and I had to wear an 8 in this dress.

This was a beautiful dress, however it could not fit my muscular arms. Both the size 4 and 6 were large on my body, but squeezed my arms. It's a pity. This dress is not for athletic figures.

I loved this dress and I had many compliments on it. The only problem was I had to wear the second size I chose because the didn't send the first choice size (8) so the dress was a little big but it worked out anyway. I was a little upset that I ordered this dress at least 4 months in advance yet they didn't end up having my size the day I needed it. Luckily the other dress fit well.

gorgeous and elegant dress

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This is a stand-out dress. The yellowish-gold fabric looks incredibly expensive, and the cut is kate-middleton-like. I wore it to a conference banquet with silver Jimmy Choos and received so many compliments all night. The dress fit me me more like a straight sheath than an A-line, and there was less structure to highlight a narrow waistline than what i expected based on the photos online. The dress's actual waistline hit right at the middle of my ribcage, and then pouffed out quite a bit right below the cinching before narrowing again at the hips. however, the material is pretty thick, and the beautiful, delicate mesh neckline has the effect of drawing the eye up, so the overall look was elegant, rather than frumpy. i'd rent it again!

This dress is a showstopper, the fit is comfortable and the detailed sleeves are simply ethereal.

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Wore this dress for my engagement party and got SO many compliments. This dress fit like a dream. I probably could've gone down a size, but this size was very comfortable. You're going to need a strapless bra if you're at all full-chested. The other thing is that the waist isn't as defined as it looks on the model, so I might suggest some waist-widdling spanx if that's your thing. Also, the arms are the tiniest bit itchy under your upper arms (but not tight), but you won't even notice with how gorgeous you feel in it. Absolutely recommend this dress.

I rented thsi dress for my rehearsal dinner and unfortunately, it fit terribly. I am not petite but by no means unable to fit into a size 6. The sleeves were so tight and the fabric was so stiff that it just didn't work. I was so bummed bc it's such a striking dress but the stylists at RTR came to my rescue (including emailing me available options for the weekend---they always go above and beyond!)

I was nervous because I ordered too late to get a size four, so they just sent the two. It fit perfectly! The length was great and I received compliments all night. It really went well with the theme of the wedding. Rent the Runway sent some goodies, too! I really felt like a princess, the customer service is great! I have already ordered again!

Beautiful dress but not for girls with big hips

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
If you are pear shaped like me, this is not the dress for you. I do say it runs true to size because if your top and bottom are the same size, then it is perfect. I have pretty big hips and the slip that is sewn in has no stretch. I first tried the 10 so I hopes the 12 would work; that was a little better in the hips but then too big for me in the top so I couldn't wear either. The material is high quality and the sheer sleeves are delicate and beautiful. You have to wear a strapless bra, which don't give me a lot of support so I looked a little frumpy in the dress anyways.

There isn't one thing I don't LOVE about this dress. I received both a 2 and 4 and found the size 2 to be the best fit. It is true to size. It was a tad bit big in the waist, but overall the fit was very flattering and comfortable. I received compliments all night! The sleeves are a bit itchy at first, but once my bridal shower started to get going I quickly forgot about the itchy sleeves. This is such an elegant dress and I would recommend it to anyone who is in need of a dress for a special event. Timeless and classic!! I'm sad to send it back!

True to size - the 10 fit like a glove. The fabric definitely has no give and it was a little tight in the boob area. Loved the patterns - definitely a unique, beautiful dress. I thought it would be more flattering than it was because I'm a little chubbier and it's not skin tight but it wasn't the most flattering thing I've ever worn.

The dress was goregous on, received so many compliements on it. The 8 fit better in the body but the sleeves were so tight on my arms, I had to go up to my back up size 10. The reviews I read were all accurate. Lace has no stretch/movement.It was a hot/humid day and the dress didn't help...I wore to a Black Tie wedding in September. Great dress for the winter.

I was told I looked like a princess.

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I was a sponsor in my cousin's wedding so I felt that I needed something a bit conservative, traditional but yet still beautiful. This was the perfect dress. I received a ton of compliments, even from folks I didn't know. I was even told that I looked like a princess. It was comfortable to move around in for 8 hours including eating and dancing. The lace is not itchy either. This dress really isn't for petite people (I'm 5'1") so the zipper ruched/bubbled up in the back and front. I found myself pulling the dress down through out the event. I was still happy to wear it, I just don't like to fidget. I looked and felt like a million bucks.

Perfect dress for my wedding shower brunch!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size

This was a great dress for a formal brunch we held for our joint wedding shower. It looks great in natural sunlight. It does fit a bit tightly in the chest, but I was able to comfortably breathe, eat, and move around. I'm (in my opinion) an average/medium build -- not considered skinny, but not considered overweight -- and I thought it was good for my body type. I got so many compliments on the dress, people kept asking where I got it. I was proud to tell them about Rent the Runway!

Rented this for a celebratory date night. Absolutely gorgeous dress but a little restricting. I wore a 4 which is my normal size and I would say it is true to size but on the smaller side. The arms feel a little tight and it was definitely tight for me in the bust/rib cage (I am a DD). I would recommend for a shorter evening.

I received a size 12 and a size 14. The 12 was too small and the 14 didn't fit quite right. I ended up not wearing either one, but not the fault of RTR.
