I loved everything about this dress! It was flattering from all angles and wasn't revealing at all!
Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The fit was a little bit big, but ran pretty true to size. I got the 6L because I'm 5'8 and it was perfect for the shoes I chose which had 2 1/12 inch heels. I got multiple comments throughout the night about how pretty the dress was and how slimming it was too. Overall - great dress. I wish I could have kept it.

Walking in to 3 compliments before I even got to the bar.
Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was very elegant. My biggest problem was that it was WAY too big. When I first tried it on, it was falling off me; it definitely runs large. I grabbed a belt and placed it where the natural waist was and it looked much better. I am sorry I do not have a picture of the event but here is a picture from when I was trying to figure out how to fix the size issue.

The dress fit true to size. I'm smaller on top and felt the dress was a big Baggie. I added a belt and it looked like it was meant for the dress. Forwards the end of the night, a part of the chain came off. Overall really fun to wear and dance !

I usually wear an 8 in dresses but I read that this ran big. I wore the 6 and it fit great. It was very comfortable and no need for uncomfortable spanx! I recommend this dress highly. No need for a lot of jewelry. Rocker chic.

Meeting James Mischka the week before and telling him I'd be wearing one of his dresses!
Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Everything was great. This dress is very forgivable so the 6 and 8 fit (just the 8 showed more cleavage) I wore 4 inch heels.The dress was a tad too long for me, however, and unfortunately for some reason the fashion tape that is usually supplied didn't come this time. That was the only downside as I would have liked to shorten it, but otherwise it was really wonderful fit, material, etc.

Super comfortable and flattering
Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I was nervous about a few things pertaining to this dress particularly about it looking 'baggy' and not showing a waist. I was also nervous about comments made about the material. So when I put it on, I was very pleased. The material is smooth, comfortable, and thicker than you might be led to believe. The cut in the chest is pretty deep but the fact that you can adjust the sliding knot in the back helps you alter how much cleavage shows (slightly). I used a Nubra and it was perfect. I think I could have gotten away with a regular bra but I was glad not to worry about it. The beading and chains were in perfect condition. I did feel it ran slightly big so if you are teetering, go smaller on your second size. It was also quite long. I'm just about 5'7 so I always choose long but for this 4L I needed to wear my tallest heels. Great, great dress, very elegant. I recommend!

Size worn: 12L
Overall fit: True to Size

I felt terrific in this dress! It showed off my upper body, while providing some forgiveness in the lower regions. I think the fit is very forgiving for a variety of shapes. The black fabric was thicker than I thought it might be (in a good way) so it laid nicely. I'm 5'6" and found the L length perfect with high heels.

I loved this dress, absolutely beautiful!
Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
It fit true to size i wore 4 inch heels and it touched the ground, if your wearing heels definitely go with the long. I wore this to my husbands marine corps ball and it was really nice because i could dance and not have to worry about my dress falling down or anything, you can even wear a bra as long as it crosses in the back. The dress is very low in the front but because the rest of the dress is so modest i thought it was fine. I would definatley recommend this dress and will for sure be using rent the runway again!

This dress fit in perfectly at a Black Tie Optional Wedding. It was a little long for my height, so I had to wear very high shoes. It would best fit women 5'4" and up. Hopefully they will make this in a petite length soon and I thenI would rent it again!

Photographs well but fabric in person is jersey and a little translucent. Chains fell off during the night but overall fit was great/flattering and worked for black tie wedding. I also went a size down from what I expected.

It was definitely a good length for 4 inch heels & the bigger the "fitting" size you wear the more it shows your cleavage.

I loved how fast the dresses were shipped out. Also, i received them a day earlier which helped with trying them on and matching up shoes and jewelry. And I still got to return the dress on the same day even though it came a day early.
Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This was my first time using renttherunway.com and I was very unsure of what to order or how to even make sure it fits. I went with 2 dresses and so glad I did! The dress that fit, and I wore, was perfect. What made it so amazing was that it wasn't a tight or curve-hugging dress. It hangs a little loose so no worries on making sure it fits perfectly. My company had a formal dinner associated with the Air Force and the dress was also professional (I didn't feel like I was showing too much). Also, what makes the dress is the chain details helps as well if you don't have any jewelry or last minute put together. All you really need is small earrings and maybe a ring. I received alot of compliments on this dress and was VERY happy with my first time experience at Rent the Runway.

I wore this gown to a NYE formal event. I am 5'8' and oredered L and it was just the right length. I received tons of complements. I think you need to be quite tall to pull this dress off. It does tend to run a tiny big. Only complaint I had was that a few beads were missing on strap and a few chains were missing. The chains might be a bit fragile to be a rental dress. Loved the look however!

I loved how the knot on the back slid up or down to adjust the amount of cleavage. The material was comfortable and not too heavy. I wore 4 inch heels and the bottom still dragged a little. I think I would have been better off with an 8R. The fit was very flattering. Overall I loved the look.

Great dress, great first RTR experience!
Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I am 5'7" so I ordered both the 8R and 8L. The 8R was perfect, but if you are small chested (like me!), it might need to be pinned in the middle. My dress didn't have as nearly many chains as the one in the picture and some of the beading was missing, but you couldn't tell unless you knew what to look for. I received many, many compliments. The dress is forgiving and photographs well, but it's more of a jersey type material and not overly slimming. Overall, I was really happy with my first RTR experience.

Like the dress if it weren't so large.
Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
It ran a size, if not two sizes big everywhere. Im 5'8 and the 4L was still 3 inches too long in 4 inch heels. The waist hung despite the elastic and I didn't like the look when I belted it. If i were to do it again I would have gone with the 0L. Super thick material, flattering cut just size WAY down.

An 8L was the only size close to mine that was available, and even though it was a little big, the cut still fit pretty well. A 6L would have been perfect. Very comfortable for dancing...I got many compliments on it as well.

Dress was beautiful but long
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
There was an issue getting me the dress size I requested. I'm 5'6'' and needed the regular length, but only the long was available when my dress was about to ship to me. The RTR crew was awesome in helping me pick a different dress, and I was surprised that this dress in the long showed up as well. I tried it on and it was absolutely gorgeous. the cinch sits perfectly, and the back is so flattering for those of us with rolls. It was so comfortable as well. The only issue for me was the neckline would need fashion tape for sure, because the cut went way too low for me, and the dress they sent was a long, so it was about 1.5' too long, which, with about 3in heels, was actually fine. wish I had had two events that weekend to wear both my dresses!

I thought I was going to love this dress for a more edgy black tie wedding look, but when I got it and tried it on it looked a bit more "wet seal" than I was hoping. It wasn't a bad dress, just not quite my style? I ended up wearing the other option I chose. The RTR process was fantastic though!

Wore this for a July wedding. It's incredibly flattering and I was complimented all night!
Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The fit was mostly true to size, but I ended up belting it so I could define my waist a bit more. The fabric is thin so you can see shape through it when you're back lit, so if you're modest about that, just a heads up. The fabric wasn't the greatest quality but overall I really was pleased with the dress and was sad when I had to put it back in the mail. In fact, would rent again in a heart beat. Felt sexy without being overexposed.

I wore this dress to a formal charity event in Janurary when I was four months pregnant. It was a great dress because it wasn't too tight so I felt very comfortable in it with my bump. It was also great for winter because the fabric was a little heavier feeling. I did order slightly larger sizes than I normally would because I was pregnant, but it was still great. I would definently recommend the Long size though (I'm 5'8") because I had to wear slipper-like shoes to make sure it didn't look too short.

Not as fancy as it looks
Size worn: 10L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
From the pictures, I thought this dress was going to be made out of heavy, rich fabric that would look like a million bucks... not so much. The material is quite light, if it was any lighter, you might be able to see through the dress if standing in front of some light. The metallic embellishment on the front was not very rich either, kind of looked cheap, would have looked cheap if not for the fine work on the shoulder straps. Ran kind of short, for a "long" fit. I was disappointed. The dress looks so amazing on the picture, but came short (no pun intended) in many aspects.

This dress is gorgeous. The fit is super flattering, especially if you're curvy. You don't have to wear a lot of jewelry because of the silver chain. I tried to buy this dress after I rented it, but unfortunately I don't think it's available anywhere else! Unless you're really tall, get the regular length. I'm 5'7" and the "long" was about an inch too long. Other than that, this dress is perfect.

I wore this to a black tie wedding on New Year's Eve. I wore the 10R, because my back up was the 12R. Probably could have gotten away with the 8R. That said, super comfortable, very chic, received lots of compliments. Wore braless without difficulty or mishap. Would absolutely recommend.
