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.

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 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 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.

Perfection in Dress Form
I wore this dress for my Christmas Banquet. It was my first rental, and it was the perfect length (4 in. from the ground when kneeling) for me. The dress is well made and has a very "vintage Hollywood" look to it. It was adored by everyone who saw it! I would DEFINITELY recommend this dress!

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 was my first rental and I was very happy with it. Fit well, maybe a little big. Only downside was that the skirt has a lot of volume, so when you sit it kind of puffs out. I'd wear this dress again but only at an event where I'd be standing and not sitting.

This dress was beautiful and exactly what I was hoping for my black/white vintage theme bridal shower. I am currently b/w an 8 and a 10 and I went with the 10 b/c the 8 was tight on my ribcage. The 10 was bigger in the bust (34 c) but it pretty much fit. It really is a lovely dress. This was also my first rental. So far so good.

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!

The material was thick and tweedy. The silver threads were a bit scrachy from the outside, but comfy on the inside. I rented the necklace shown and the necklace got all the comments at the party. But then again, it cost more to rent. Glad I rented it.

Loved this dress! I wish though that I had gotten a more of a tan before hand because the dress can wash you out if you are fair skin. I recieved tons of compleiments. I was even more excited when I put the dress on and my booty didn't make the dress too short. Definately recommend this dress it was great!

This dress turned out to look just like the picture, but it didn't fit like it did on the model. I would say this dress is made for tall and slender. If you have curves, it would probably make you look bigger, I read all the reviews about it running big, however, if you have a large bust, you might want to get the size you normally wear.

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.

I rented this dress for one of my sorority's events and couldn't be more pleased. I'm a curvy girl with large chest and I'm happy to say this dress fit perfectly. It really showed off my waist and complimented my figure. The material is scratchy on the outside but the inside is lined with satin so it is very comfortable. You can't really tell from the picture how much this dress truely sparkles.

50th Birthday Party
Loved this dress and am renting again in December. While I went with the reviews of this dress running big I ended up wearing the size I would usually wear and would have liked to try the dress one size up. I'm over 40 and have had kids, that being said, I usually need a bit more room in the rib cage and that is why I would have liked to try the size 6.

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.

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!

The entire process was very simple! With the exception of picking which dress, so many wonderful choices. After purchasing many dresses in the past only to wear one time, this was a great alternative. And I received so many compliments on the dress.

The dress arrived perfectly on time and in great condition. At the event, I shared with one guest that I rented this dress. She confessed her love of rent the runway too! We both want to try the gold goddess gown, but we need the right occasion!
This was my first rent the runway rental and I must say, I am very impressed! I ordered the 8 and the 10 as a back up. I have a full bust, so the 8 actually worked best because it held me in place. My only caution is that this dress runs short and for a tall person, it was a little boxy. Black tights and black high heels completed the look. The dress was perfect for a holiday party. I probably won't order it again, but it was a great dress for the occasion!

I really liked this dress. I rented it for my graduate school graduation and paired it with platform black pumps, pearls and a black pashmina since it is winter. It looked really classy and I received a lot of compliments. Great little dress.

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.

Sparkly and Sweet
I loved this dress & wore it for our family Christmas party. My only gripe (something that I'm learning about Milly dresses!) is that it was extremely tight in the chest area. If you're a D-DD, I recommend sizing up, unless you want that corseted uplifted bust look!

The time I was engaged will is a time I will always remember and I will have these pictures of my fiance and I for the rest of our lives.
I wore the dress for my engagement pictures and it photographed beautifully. The matallic didn't show very well, I received many compliments. It is a little itchy under the arms but it was still very comfortable
