This dress is an attention stealer! Wear this dress if you want to stand out!
I wore this dress with tights because it did run a little on the short side and I just felt more comfortable that way. I had no problem with the single strap. It worked really well to hold up the dress. I'd definitely rent this dress again!

Beautiful Sex and the City-esque dress - runs SMALL
This dress was an absolute knockout on the hanger. The bow looked fantastic and made it very modern and trendy. I absolutely loved this dress on but I could barely breathe! It runs SO small, and I found the material to be very scratchy on my skin. So sad I couldn't wear it.

All of the compliments!
I was worried that the bow would be too large but it was amazing! I ended up buying the dress in a smaller size to keep when RTR had a sale.

I felt adorable and it fit perfectly.
It was slightly large in the chest and tight in the hips, but going slightly smaller made it fit fine.

Literally the most perfect dress for New Year's Eve! I loved this dress and hated to have to send it back! The fit was perfect and the big bow made it even better!

It was very short on me so I actually ended up wearing my back up dress, but I am 6 foot.
It was fitted through the hips and too short for me.

Super unique dress! GIANT bow!
It was a little loose on my all around even though I wore a 0. It was cute, but didn't fit perfectly so I was a little disappointed. However, I have a unique body type so that may be it. Overall, it is gorgeous in person and looks great on! Just wish it were a little tighter.

I saw this dress and fell in love. Didn't want to give it back!
Loved this dress! Yes, the bow is big, but that's why you're getting this dress, right? If you get this dress, own it. Own the bow. I promise people will give you compliments.

Runs way small!
The dress was beautiful, but the sizes run very small for someone with curves. I got a 6 (my normal size) and an 8, the 6 I couldn't even get on and the 8 was too tight. Definitely size up if you rent this one!

I kept getting compliments all night! I could easily dance in it, and its so elegant.
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.

Loved the bow!
I am very petite so and I made the mistake of ordering a 2 and 4. They were both a little too big on me. If I would have gotten a 0 I think it would have fit. I still really loved the dress. The bow was definitely the center piece of the dress.

I loved this dress! It fit exactly how it was described.
I'm 5'4 so even though the dress seems a little high above the knee in the picture, I think it fit me well. At least 3 inches above the knee. It was snug, stretchy and fabulous!

This dress is so beautiful!
I wasn't able to wear the dress because I didn't end up being able to attend the event. I so wish I would have though! This dress was so beautiful. I LOVED the bow personally and I thought the colors of the dress was so beautiful. The material was very structured and quality.

Loved!
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!

Perfect holiday party dress!
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.

Perfect for a Winter Wedding
I wore this to my friend's winter wedding with tights and it was perfect. I did not think that the bow was too large, like other reviews. It adds to the dress. I would rent it again!

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

Loved wearing this Milly dress! Felt so glamorous all night and of course no one had the same dress :)
I rented this dress for a formal NYE event. This dress was so beautiful and fit like a glove! I typically wear between a 0 and a 2 so I rented both sizes and ended up wearing the 0. I received compliements all night and my date loved it :) This was my second RTR and I can't wait to rent again!

Felt so great in this dress...all eyes were definitely on me!
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.

Perfect NYE dress!
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.

Fun Statement Dress!
This was a really unique party dress and the bow was very fun to play with all night! I wore it with black tights and fun heels (like the pic). I went out and bought big fake-gold studs the day of the event to wear with it and really well. If I did this again I would invest more time in experimenting with a fun up-do for my hair. I usually wear at size 4, but I got 2 sizes and ended up wearing the 6 so I could sit down comfortably (and without flashing anyone).

I've never worn a dress that had such well made fabric! It was so comfortable!
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.

I got compliments on this dress all night long at a formal christmas party. the size 8 was a little on the tight side but it looked fantastic and was comfortable. Very flattering on top which is difficult for me as a DD! Loved it so much I would consider buying this dress - but worked out perfectly for a rental!

Great holiday dress!
This Milly dress ran true to size and was a great look for a holiday cocktail party. While the bow seemed a little too large at first, it looked perfect once the outfit was complete. Got a lot of compliments!

Perfect dress, perfect fit, loved it!
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!
