I felt like a million bucks without having to spend a ton of money! I received so many compliments the whole night! Thank you RTR!

I absolutely loved the dress. I didn't want to give it back! I wore it to a New Years party and received so many compliments. Everyone thought it was so unique and loved the big bow--very carrie bradshaw as everyone said. As far as the fit goes, it definitely runs true to its size. Very figure flattering, it made my waist look so tiny! The length of the dress is perfect, just short enough. But its such a comfortable dress. It was so easy to dance in! I wasn't fidgeting or adjusting the dress at any point of the night. A great dress to rent for those special occasions!

Mine was definitely the most unique dress of the night. People could not stop talking about it!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was great! Everyone loved it! I found that it ran a bit small and I actually ended up wearing the larger of the two sizes. Its pretty short, but I think the picture acurately shows the length. The cut and fabric make it figure forgiving if you have a tummy, but for me that was a problem b/c I have a small waist and large bust, so I did not fit me tight enough around the waist and I looked a little bit bigger than I actually am. That being said, I am probably the only person that noticed and I got praises all night for the outfit!

This dress fit me great. It is very well made and sturdy. The bow didn't feel too big on me. It is a reasonable size but it is was makes the dress so incredible and the reason to rent it. I found the sizing true to fit. The dress was very comfortable, too.

When I first recieved this dress I was a little put off by the huge bow, but after I went out and bought sheer black tights and paired it all off with my shiny black White House Black Market heels I fell in love! This dress was a hit at my companys Winter formal, soooo many compliments all night! We went to a restaurant before the formal and literally all eyes were on me. The huge bow is gorgeous and the dress is a darker navy blue then what is pictured with a beautiful gold print. VERY comfortable and well made, easy to dance in, doesn't need any accessories with it since the bow really stands out!

I wore this dress for a Cocktail date party! Loved the dress, I wore a size 4 and it was a little large in the top. The length was perfect! The bow is big but it's so so cute!! I got many compliments and definitely didn't want to send the dress back! The Black dress is from Rent The Runway too. It's a Halston Heritage dress.

Perfect NYE dress!

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress was fantastic! I wore it for a New Year's Eve event with my boyfriend and got a ton of compliments. I am 5'0 and typically have to wear petite sizes because in addition to being short, I have a short torso. Fortunately for me, this fit just fine! It was snug but fit without being unforgivingly tight. It fit me perfectly through the bust (I'm a 34B) and across the hips. The fabric is thicker than I was anticipating, which was nice for a chilly winter evening. As other reviewers have said, the bow is in actuality a lot larger than I was anticipating, but I thought it gave the dress a little something extra. I wore the dress with sheer black tights and black ultra high heels. I curled my hair with the plan to wear it down but ended up pulling it back before we left because it was just too much on me with the big bow. All in all, a great rental! Would definitely rent this again in the future.

The dress was fun and festive! I wore it on New Years Eve and received so many compliments. I would have gave it 5 stars if the fit was perfect, but I had some issues zipping it up. I usually wear a size 6 so I rented 6 and 8. Had to go with the 8... I recommend if you are top heavy to go one size up.

I was told I look like "the Ringleader of Awesome."

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
This is my first time renting from RTR, so it's entirely possible that it's not so much that this dress runs large, but that I won't be able to fit into anything well. I generally wear a 0 and in some very rare cases, a 2. It fit me fine in the bust and hip area but the waist was extremely baggy and not very flattering. The excess material made it seem like I had a belly bulge. I wound up wearing it, anyway, because I just didn't care all that much and wasn't in the mood to figure something else out at the last minute, but I was disappointed in the fit. The dress itself was of a very forgiving and heavy material, which is perfect for winter parties. The bow certainly made a statement and my top hat lent the final punctuation. The pockets were an inspired touch and I wound up making use of them to mask the weird fit. I made the best of it and received a lot of compliments, but I'm hesitant to rent my size from this designer again.

Bowed Over

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress for New Year's Eve and got SO many compliments! The giant bow was definitely a conversation starter. The dress fit me fairly well, but was a little loose on top. I went bra-less and just taped it down, which worked ok. I loved the way the back was cut because it made me look bootylicious. The only thing I didn't like were the little pockets in the front. The placement of them was weird and I think the dress would have been better off without them. Overall though, a fun dress. I was sad to send it back!

I rented this dress for a black tie party in Manhattan last November. It was SO CUTE and I received so many compliments! My friend actually rented it the next weekend for a wedding! The bow is probably my favorite part of the dress. I'm a girly girl, but this bow is not too big, its just the right amount of "UMPH" without looking ridiculous.

Absolutely loved this dress. I had a wedding to go to, months after I had a baby... so wasnt very comfortable in my skin! This dress was a little short, but I did wear tights with it... Also it sucked me in and made me look smooth and slim. Got so many compliments! Was a little scared of the bow, because it is large, but so worth it!

It is form-fitting, and it works really well if you have hips. Its lined in black silk and its actually really comfy. Its short enough to be slightly edgy but definitely appropriately covers you up.
