Long Dress - Awkward Fit
Not a nice looking dress on.... I'm tall and slender and it was super super long on me. Doesn't fit at all like it's pictured. Would not recommend.... :(

Gorgeous dress ... was a bit overkill for my date but he was impressed! :)
I was afraid that the band that went around my hips was going to be too tight with the extra small so I ordered the small as back up. The small was waaay to big in the stomach and was hanging around the hips (my hips are what cause me to order larger sizes depending on fit). The extra small was perfect! Loved it ... LOTS of compliments!

This is the cutest dress! Very girlie and feminine, I received tons of compliments.
This is a great dress for almost any occasion. I loved it. The fit was great and it is very easy to wear and dance in. I would rent this again in a minute.

We're almost exactly the same size and build and I've order this dress to wear to a party. Can you tell me did you need to wear a tank under it or is it lined up top?
VanessaOctober 28, 2012
Hi Jennifer! Nope, you will not need a tank top. It is completely lined and super comfortable. You will be the talk to the town...Enjoy!

Loved this--little bit long and little bit big
I loved this dress, it was a little bit long on me came right above my knees and the XS had extra material. I wore the XS and it was great for a conservative party but looked much better on my friend who tried it on and is 4 inches taller.

Awkard
S was awkward fit-- as it hit my ass weird, and the M was to big..... just didn't work for my type of body but was very pretty on the hanger. Ended up not wearing.

cute and retro
i wore this dress for a 1920s themed halloween party. it's very flattering and the detail on both the weave top and the pleated skirt is exceptional. i got complimented all night. one caveat, i'm 5'9" and it was still a little long on me. i would have liked it to end a half an inch higher.

Loved the dress and how comfortable it was. Would consider purchasing it.
The dress has plenty of stretch in it, so you can be flexible with the size. It's very comfortable. Love the pleated skirt, which had a nice weight to it. It seemed longer than the picture implies.

Not for petite people.
I ordered the two smallest sizes based on other reviews saying that it runs large. The XS was still extremely large on me and the dress is very long. Needless to say, I returned the dress immediately. I would not recommend this dress to women that are petite. It will probably end up being baggier and longer than you expect. Such a shame because it's a cute dress. This is the first time one of my RTR orders did not work for me. I was so bummed!

Great fit, super comfortable!!
I wore this dress to my husband's Christmas party (cocktail party), and received so many compliments! The dress was so comfortable and was easy to wear. I have larger hips, so the dress did tend to ride up a little bit, but overall I felt the dress was true to size and great for my body type. Would definitely recommend it, and I might rent it again too!

This dress is even more gorgeous in person! Got a ton of compliments on it!
The top is stretchy enough to allow comfortable room for movement. Warning: the skirt is pretty short and has a tendency to ride up if you have hips because of the dropwaist. All in all though, the dress is gorgeous and comfy, and I wish I could have kept it!

cute but underwhelmed
This is a cute dress for work/date (if dressed down) or can be played up for a more formal event. I received compliments but it is in no way a statement piece and I'd spend my $50 for a different RTR dress if given the chance over again. Also, the dress could get borderline dowdy due the fact that it runs quite large so be careful. I'm normally a 4-6 (small) but the XS fit much better. S

Perfect for dancing, but wear boy shorts!
Rented this for my December birthday, it was really comfortable and great for dancing! I just recommend wearing boy shorts underneath because the skirt swishes up high if you spin around.

I rented this for a Christmas sloshfest gone wrong. But, everyone loved my dress and I got tons of compliments. Yay for Rent the Runway! It was the only good thing about the day.

Great for a 1920s themed party!
I rented this dress for a 1920s themed birthday party, and it was perfect! I think the drop-waist is better suited for a straighter body type. (I'm more of an hour glass.) I'm 5'3" and typically wear a dress size 4 (sometimes a 2 sometimes a 6, depending n the fit) and an XS was perfect for me in every aspect.

Great dress!
I wore it with flats for a party I was hosting before Christmas. It fit loosely, which I liked. I got so many compliments on it. It is a very well-made dress. The lace is so pretty.

Such a simple process!
I rented this dress for my husbands company awards banquet. It was a great fit and great material, snug in all the right places. The length was perfect, not too short or too long. I loved the flirty feel of the pleated skirt!

The hem was loose but fashion tape fixed that. I am glad I got the XS as this seems to run a bit large.

I'm 6'0 and the dress was a little on the shorter side. To help with length I paired it with black nylons which was perfect since I wore in the winter. Lots of compliments!

Felt Like a Fashionista
I'm not used to a drop waist, I usually try to emphasize my waist instead. That said, this dress was high quality and I felt very fashionable. The skirt does ride up a bit on hips, so be aware. You may need spanx as well for the lower tummy area if that is one of your concerns. Plenty of room for a large bust and very comfortable. The lining matched my skin tone almost perfectly so that was a plus. The dress was warm enough for a chilly day, but I wouldn't recommend it for a summer affair.

Great day to night outfit.
Unfortunately I didn't get a picture of me in the dress, but it's a great dress for day to night. I'm only 5'2 so the skirt was much longer on me than it appears on the model. Therefore it was totally appropriate in my office and then fun enough for the concert and cocktail party I had after work. It was not tight at all, but very comfortable and easy to wear. Definitely recommend it.

Cute, whimsical look!
This dress was very comfortable, but I only gave it 4 stars because I felt it made my torso look super long - probably would be much more flattering on taller ladies. Overall a very cute dress!

Wore this dress to "Sleep No More" and it was Perfect!!!
I thoroughly enjoyed the dress for the Jazz Themed Valentines Dance at "Sleep No More." I only gave the dress 4 Stars though because a couple other girls at the party were wearing the same dress. Although, I did not mind on this particular night because it was kind of sexy that my date could potentially confuse me with 3 other girls wearing the same dress and mask in the dark, I would have been devastated any other night. So long as you are not wearing this dress to a 20's theme party Im sure you will not have the same problem. so Enjoy! :)

Perfect Contemporary Vintage!
Great mix of a vintage look with a contemporary feel so you don't feel like you are wearing a consume. Wore it to a family party but would have been great for going on a date or a nicer party with friends.

This dress exceeded all of my expectations! The fit was lovely and it was beyond comfortable. Super sexy and comfy? Couldn't ask for a better dress. Def had a tear in my eye sending this one back. I would absolutely rent this again and highly recommend it for any occasion!

Perfect for 20's parties when you don't want to look too "costumey"
Super cute dress! I loved it for the event and got tons of compliments. I wore an XS but the S would have been acceptable as well. I could have used Spanx because it isn't particularly forgiving in the tummy area-- but it wasn't too bad. Would definitely rent again!

This dress was perfect for a 20s party I attended.
The dress is definitely longer than pictured. I have long legs and wore the medium because I wanted the dress to come to just above my knees. I had some room to move in the medium.

So much fun!
I actually rented this as my second choice so I did not end up wearing it out but it was super cute on. It is pretty delicate (I would imagine you could tear the sleeves easily). So, I would not recommend wearing this to anything where you might wreck it (bachelorette party etc). It was a little tight in the chest for me but I am pretty busty. Also, it is not at all as short as it appears on the model. She must be 6 feet+. It hit me at the knee.

Formal yet flirty and fun!
I wore this dress twice during an 8-day rental. The first event was a wedding and it was perfect for the evening ceremony. The second event was a charity gala. The dress was formal without being overdone like some of the ballgowns that showed up that night! The dress is a heavier fabric than I expected, a great weight for a springtime or fall event. The length looks really short in the RTR picture, but it came down to about 2" above the knee on me at 5'6". The fabric has a wonderful stretch to it that hugs your curves and smoothed out some of my "less favorite" physical attributes. All around a great dress!

great dress! really flattering!
I was super excited that the XS fit me. Even if it's due to vanity sizing, it's always nice to feel pretty. I rented the dress for a surprise bday party on a boat and then a night on the town. To dress it down, during the day, I paired the dress with a jacket and sandals. At night, I wore it with pearls and a headband and did the whole 20's look. I felt so pretty!! The dress is not as short on me as it shows on the model. but i'm only 5.3

Ill fitting. No wow factor.
This dress wasn't meant for my body type. It was slightly too long and not tight enough in the bodice. There was zero "oh la la" with this dress. I felt frumpy. However, RTR was happy to credit me since it didn't fit!
