This dress runs large than other mIlly dresses I have. I could have easily worn the next size down. The fabric was scratchy. But it was very pretty for a holiday party. Plus I love the pockets.

Hmm so I scan the model, I think she's wearing a 0 or a 2, and I say...there's no way I can be a 2. So I order the 4 and 6. Big mistake! I'm panicking since NYE is now just a day away. But have no fear, RTR's customer service rocks. They let me order one size down and it should be here tomorrow. I'm 5'2", 120ish lbs, 34B, and in dresses, I normally wear a 4. So if I were the next renter, I would order a 0 and a 2. If you're normally a 6, rent a 2 and a 4. Trust me, this dress runs big.

I usually wear a size 8 in milly so I ordered both a 6 and an 8. The size 6 was even a little big. But it didn't matter. It looked great. So festive without being too dressy and frilly. Loved this dress a lot.

Ordered a 0 and a 2 and the 0 was perfect; I'm usually a 2. The material is scratchy on the outside but the inside is lined and comfy and the pockets are great. Received a lot of compliments; was the perfect dress for NYE.

This dress runs slightly large, so I'm glad I got to pick from two sizes. I'd recommend going one size down from what the size chart says. I wore this dress for my engagement party and it was perfect for a winter luncheon with family. There were a few small snags on the dress but overall I was very happy with it.

This dress was truly adorable! I wore it to my bridal shower in February and got a lot of compliments. One downside is that the fabric was a little scratchy. The black bow is a detachable belt that just makes the dress. Great length, not too short as I find a lot of dresses like this are. Flattering square neckline.

Cute dress. Definitely runs large and is best suited for a conservative event. The material is scratchy like was mentioned before. I probably wont rent again. Kind of a secretary dress...

This is such a cute, fun dress. It is a great fit, good length, and has pockets. The bow is a detachable belt. It is much more silver than the picture shows. Dress runs a little bit large (my usual size fit a little loose, but the size smaller fit great). The fabric is scratchy, and rubs uncomfortably against the under arm area.

OMG love this dress...just got it and cant wait to wear!!! Defiantly order at least one size smaller than you normally would...after reading the other reviews I was hesitant, but I ordered a 2 instead of 4 and it was perfect!

Rented this dress for a formal dance for my daughter and it was perfect. Stylish, classy, and an elegant fit. The two sizes came in handy since it ran large. The only complaint was the the top revealed a bit when she bent, but the tape provided did the trick.

I wore this dress to my bridal shower, and oh my god did I LOVE it! I got SO many compliments, and it photographed beautifully. The reviews are right though, it runs really large. I am normally a 4-6, and I actually wore the 2 in this dress (I should say that it runs large in the armpit/chest area, so if you are big chested, I would go maybe a size down than you normally wear, if you have a smaller chest, like myself, then I would go 2 sizes down). It's not that itchy, I was nervous it would be, but it was fine. Overall, I couldn't have picked a better dress for the occasion!

Runs a little big, but it is a great classic cut. I rented it as a back up and didn't end up wearing it because I loved my first choice. This would have been a great dress but I was extremely scratchy!

Silver threads twinkle for just a hint of extra glamour.

I wore this dress to a high tean in NC in June, it was a little heavy for the weather. This would make a great fall to winter dress. I am 5'9, 135 lbs, I ordered the 6 and the 4, I wore the 4 and it fit great, I just wished it was a little longer, if you are short the lenght will be great. I think when people mention their measurements it really helps when trying to figure what size ot order. I am 34, 26, 37.

Loved having different sizes to ensure great fit!

This dress looks beautiful in real life. The tweed sparkles and the material is high quality. However, it did not flatter my figure. I am usually a size 4, but the 2 fit much better. The fabric is thick and stiff, and if you lean over the fabric puffs out and with the empire waist it looked like I was pregnant. I would suggest getting this dress only if you have an athletic figure.

I LOVE this dress. I am 5'7", 135 lbs, measurements are 34/27/38, chest size 34DD. And I am also 4 months pregnant right now with baby #2! Not a huge bump yet, but a bump nonetheless :) I ordered a size 2 and 4 based off of the reviews saying this dress runs big. They were right! I am normally a 4, sometimes a 6. The 2 fits PERFECTLY. It is the perfect dimensions for my larger chest, but fits through the natural waist and has room in the hip area for my growing belly. So excited to wear this to the wedding we are attending this weekend!

Thank you! I am also 5'7", 34DD, and 135 lbs-- I just rented this dress as I'm 6 months pregnant, so it looks like it's going to work!

Hard to zip up but the shoulders kept fall down. Quite metallic and a bit snagged in spots. I'm petite and it would have been better on a taller person.

I easily wore a size smaller than normal for a friend's rehearsal dinner last Friday. Still, the dress is beautiful and very figure flattering. Beware, though, it's also very very short. I would not recommend it for sitting in front of a lot of people.

This was one of the most unforgettable parties of my life and I'm so happy that almost everyone there had something wonderful to say about my dress.

I wore this dress for my bridal shower and absolutely loved it! Got so many compliments on it as well! I'm a size 4, and the 2 fit me like a glove. Didn't have to wear a bra either and I'm a 34C. All in all, I was super happy with the dress and the fit.

Perfect Winter Dress

I am normally a size 6 comfortably but this dress was a little big. However the 4 was a little tight, but not unwearable. It all depends on what you are comfortable with but I definitely recommend getting the second dress in a size smaller.

Perfect Winter White

I wore this dress to a holiday party. The theme was "White Christmas," with everyone wearing white and it was perfect. I am between a 4 and a 6. The 6 was too big in the hips so I went with the 4. Got lots of compliments. I loved the pockets and the silver sparkly threading was perfect for the holidays.

I loved this dress so much that I bought it when RTR had its sale this year. Now it's mine!

I wore this for a class reunion and loved it!! The shimmer in the fabric is really great and it was perfect for the early evening event and then going out afterwards. It was just a tad bit large in the top. I wore the 4 even though I thought I would need the 6 and had to fix the straps every so often.

I looked so cute for my birthday!!!

I wore this to my January birthday party, we went to dinner and then had a table at a small bar/club. This dress was so cute and sparkly and really made me look like the birthday girl!! The photo I uploaded is the only one that exists from that night, and it doesn't show the dress too well but at least it shows that you will have a great time wearing this dress!! The dress ran a little large, I wore the 0 and it was very comfortable, not at all tight

Great dress for a formal NYE party!

This dress is super classy and preppy! I loved wearing it and got a ton of compliments. I wore the 0 and it was a little big on me, would have liked it to be a bit more snug around the ribs but to give the dress more shape. The length hit me the same as the model in the photo, about 3 inches above me knee. It's more glittery in person, great rental!

This dress was absolutely perfect for an event I had at my college. I ordered a 6 and a 4 because of other reviews I had read about it running slightly large (I am usually a 6, every now and then an 8 based on the cut of the dress) and I ended up wearing the 6. Super comfy with the fuller skirt, loved the pockets, and I felt like Jackie O! Killed me to send it back :)

A little on the big size. I where a 34 D, but am generally a petite frame, I ordered a 4 and 6, I often have a hard time getting the bust part of dresses to zip, but the 4 of this fit no problem, and the 6 was really big. If you are going to order this, you should also know that it's way more sparkly/shiny in real life than it comes out in the picture. It also flared out a little more than I expected, but was super cute.

This dress was so festive pretty, simple, and easy to wear for New Year's!

Works with a normal bra, great winter white color. Important when you try it on: It looks awful without the belt, so be sure to put the whole thing on before deciding not to wear!

It was the perfect outfit for my rehearsal dinner!

This was a gorgeous dress that I wore to my rehearsal dinner. I loved that it was a bit of fun (with the metallic threading) but still looked slightly bridal due to the light coloring. It runs a bit large (I typically wear a size 4) but even the size 2 had a bit of give. The ribbon detail at the waist is perfect for accenting an hourglass figure. I also loved that this dress was figure flattering without being overly revealing.

Great comfortable dress!

Great little dress- I got lots of compliments! It is comfortable and provides ample coverage everywhere while also being flattering. I am usually a 0 but wore the 2 because I have a C chest and the 0 was too tight. Definitely go for the bigger size if you are well endowed!

Great Dress!

I wore this dress to a winter wedding and received lots of compliments! IT has just the right amount of sparkle. It does run a little short, but with black tights and heels, it looked really nice. The pocket was an added bonus! Loved wearing the dress, wanted to keep it!

I'm a larger busted girl so I needed to go up a size to accommodate my chest, but the dress was fantastic. Really sparkly and fun. I got a lot of compliments on it and it was perfect for the holiday party that I was attending.

Length of the Dress!

This dress is an example of why it's so great Rent the Runway sends you two sizes. Although the size4 fit just fine, I needed the size6 because of the length of the dress. I held the two up to one another - the size4 was 3 inches shorter than the size6! When you are 5'9", it makes a huge difference. The dress is shorter than in looks in the model's picture.

I thought this dress was a perfect fit. I normally wear a 10, and well, wore the 10. It was perfect. I loved it. I recommend a good demi bra though, and it's "bra strap" holders were perfect. No fashion tape needed!

This was my first rental and I was quite nervous about it, but the fit on this dress was perfect. I usually wear a size 2 on top but I am pear shaped and much larger on the bottom, so I was worried the bottom would be too tight. The two fit perfectly in the bust and waist and was full enough to accomodate my hips. I was also worried that the dress would be itchy, but with the lining it was not really a problem at all. My only comment is that this dress is quite short. I am only 5'5" and the dress was well above my knees. It wasn't a problem for me, but it could be if you are taller. I wore it to a holiday party with a black tuxedo jacket and black tights. I got a lot of compliments.
