I adored my accessories- they totally made the outfit!

Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Overall, I think this fit was pretty easy breezy. I also thought the color was beautiful. I would agree that it runs a bit narrow in the hip and a bit big in the bust- it's definitely well suited for a bigger bust. Being a 34B myself , I just wore a push up bra to help fill it out!

A little tight in the hips but otherwise very comfortable. I wore this a couple of years ago when I was a little bit heavier :) It was pretty flattering, but snug in the hips

I loved the color of this dress to wear to a winter medical school formal. It was a great dress to dance in all night. The only problem I had was that the waist was large on but the neckline fit great. The belt helped with this but there was still excess material around the waist.

The fit was sublime for my athletic and slightly curvy body! I had such a good time and never worried about my appearance because the dress was both comfortable and glamorous. I didn't do such a dress justice at all! The event was a semi-formal event with my cross country team and because of it the night went so smoothly.

Perfect for New Year's Eve!
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I loved the fit of this dress. It was comfy and pretty which is a rare combination. I rented the 4 and 6 and went with the 4. It hugged me a little better and stayed up on the strapless side of the dress. Only required a little fashion tape to keep it up. I'm rather chesty, so this was surprising. The 6 would've been a disaster. Paired it with gold accessories and emerald earrings which also worked out great. I wish it had pockets, but that's about it. I will use rent the runway again for sure!

I have a large bust, and the one shoulder actually fit really well. It was a little snug around my hips and bottom, but that was to be expected. Overall I really enjoyed this dress. I paired it with black and gold jewelry, as well as black and gold sandals to contrast the beautiful emerald green hue. I would definitely purchase this dress to wear again and again.

The color they show for this dress is really drab... This actual dress is a very pretty green. It wrinkles very easy.. After sitting through a ceremony I had crease lines everywhere the dress folded, such as on my lap area. The wrinkles are very noticeable which bummed me out. There is NO stretch to this dress at all what so ever. I noticed that the seams from the dress were stretched from the previous rental. All in all beautiful dress...

It was fast and easy - they shipped it directly to my hotel out of town and I got it in perfect condition just in time for my event!
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size

I rented the 6 and 10 as my backup size (I really needed the 8, but it was unavailable) for a wedding - the 6 fit, but was smaller in the booty/hip area, so I sized up to the 10 to hide my postpartum baby bump, which worked because I could cinch in the waist with the belt (was a little small on top, but it was ok). I loved the rich emerald color and the great fabric - got compliments all night. I loved the mystery bling kate spade bangle bracelet - it was beautiful and I wanted to keep it so badly!

I wore this dress to my sorority's spring formal and it was perfect! It fit so well. I am smaller up top, with larger hips and it was a perfect fit. I was a little worried the bottom would be too tight but it was perfect. The color is absolutely beautiful and photographs really well. I got so many compliments on it all night! My only concern was that the belt loops for the sash were a tad high. I wish they were an inch or two lower so that they would fall right on my waist, but it didn't end up being a problem at all. Would DEFINITELY recommend this dress.

Overall fit: True to Size

I really liked this dress. I ordered the two and the four. I have worn 4s in the past but i wore the 2 this time and there wasn't much size difference. As other reviews say, it was a little snug about the hips which made it a little hard to sit and dance for a long time, but overall it was a fun dress and i got lots of complements on it. Wore it without stockings, a black peacoat and nude/gold shoes

I absolutely loved the green color of this dress. I'm a natural redhead, and I got lots of compliments about how the color looked with my hair. I wore a size 0, and it fit, but I agree with the other reviewers that it is tighter in the butt area. I'd say it's better for people who don't have really great curves. Overall, I loved it and wish I could buy it.

Loved it and would actually rent it again. There's two layers and neither bunched or were awkward. The fabric was very wrinkle resistant. Length was perfect. Definitely looked better with hair up to show off the dress. I'm curvy and it complimented my body type very nicely and I felt very confident. I got so many compliments from strangers and felt everyone's eyes on me all night- as if they were wondering who I was. Hehe, it felt really good.

I wore this dress to a November wedding in Cincinnati and I loved the dress. It was a teeny bit snug in the hips/ butt area, but the rest of the dress fit perfectly. I loved the detailing on the shoulder and it was the perfect length for me (I'm short).

loved the dress. agree with other reviewers though, the hips are a bit small!! I had some trouble sitting without the dress feeling like it might split in the sides. I'm a pretty standard size 6 though with a large bust, 5'1 about 140 lbs and although the hips were a tiny bit tight, it was still a great rental and as always great service. I rented a gorgeous pair or earrings too seen in the photo.

The emerald color was great for the fall wedding that I wore it to.
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The fit was tight in the thighs and it actually ripped on the seam when I sat down in a car to go to the wedding. I think that is needs the statement necklace to finish the look. I wore a strand of pearls that was looped around my neck 5-6 times so that is was shorter and more chunky.

I got this second style as a backup to my first choice, it ended up being fun, but a bit too much for girls with fuller chests as it makes you look even bigger on top! Also, it was just a little too short for me and i'm 5'10'' so tall girls be careful!

This dress runs SO small. I am almost ALWAYS a 4 in dresses, no matter where they are from so I thought I'd be totally safe with a 4 and a 6. Neither of the size fit at all and the fabric has zero give to it. Really pretty dress, but what a disappointment!

Loved it so much, I bought it!
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
Loved this dress but beware if you have a big bum (like me!) that it runs very tight in the bottom half. I was a firm size 2 at the time I wore it but the 4 was super snug. Now I wear a 4 and I purchased an 8 (it's the "biggest" dress in my closet, size wise) and it fits perfectly. Since it's belted, it doesn't matter if it's a little big on the bottom. So heed that warning, I was super uncomfortable in the 4 when I wore it!

Great dress but needs lots of accessorizing
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Pro: Gorgeous color, very soft and great detailing with the ruffled shoulder. Con: The belt pictured with the dress did not come with the dress (either the size 2 or 4 which I ordered). Even if it did though, you would need to accessorize the dress well to make it really pop - I went with gold and white accessories (belt and jewelry).

Pretty but not my favorite
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I really was excited to wear this dress. When I put it on it was tight on my butt and very very baggy in the stomach area. I still wore it because the belt helped cut down on the extra fabric in the stomach area. I would not rent this dress again based on fit but it is still very beautiful.

Gorgeous color and COMFORTABLE!
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I was nervous as this was my first rental from RTR and I was arriving home from my honeymoon and heading immediately to another wedding. I wasn't sure what to expect but there wasn't much room for error! I am normally a 2, sometimes a 4 and the 2 fit me. It was a little tight in the hips but I am a little wider in the hips so that makes sense. The only downside was that there were little pulls all over the dress. I'm sure this particular style has been rented frequently since it is such a great dress, but it did take away from the experience a little. That is the only reason I didn't rate it 5 stars! I will be renting again!

It was such a great color. Wore it with nude heels and minimal jewelry. I wore the 0, and the armhole was a little low on me, but that could be because of my small chest size. Hips fit well, may be a bit tight, but overall I LOVED it!

A little too short, a little too tight
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I was obsessed with this dress when I saw it on RTR, and I planned all of my weekend looks around it. Unfortunately, the dress was a little too short on me (I'm 5'11"), so the sash was tied around my rib cage rather than around my natural waist. I wear a size 10 in almost everything, including other Milly dresses, but the dress was too tight across my hips to be appropriate for a wedding. Aside from the fit issues, the dress is absolutely gorgeous and would look wonderful on someone just a bit shorter (it probably would have been great for me in a size 12, but I didn't order a back-up size in this one).

fab dress but sadly they didnt have a size 8 for the dates i needed so I got a 6 and 10 (the six was a little tight on the bottom and i have small hips) and the ten was too big for me. i have a full bust (36D) and the 6 and 10 each fit it just fine. it is a gorgeous color and i have not doubt that if i had gotten it in an 8 i would have fallen in love with it!

This dress was pretty, but did not fit well. I ordered a 4 & a 6 and both were too small in the hips but to big in the bust.

The dress fit true to size, but the belt sat a little high on my torso. Also, the beautiful emerald green was too jewel-toned for an end of the summer wedding, I thought. Very pretty. I may order it again for another occasion!

I really was excited to wear this dress, got it in the 6 and 8 but I could JUST barely zip the 8 up and it just didn't look right. On top of that, the fabric felt really flimsy and just hung on you... So glad I got my back up choices though!
