Gorgeous Dress! Excellent quality and detailing in the lace. I wore to a wedding reception.

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This is a well made dress which made it a little heavier than normal but still extremely comfortable. The lace is on the entire dress. I usually wear and 8 but for comfort and a more natural look I went up to the 10. All of the fabric in the dress makes a slightly smaller than normal.

Such a lovely formfitting dress, wished it had fit

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
First of all, pardon the lack of shoes, I took the picture while trying it on, just to showcase how lovely and form fitting this dress is!! This is my first time using RTR, and so far I love the experience! I got this dress as my primary option to wear for my birthday party. Unfortunately, I couldn't wear it. This is, by all means, a lovely dress don't get me wrong. The issue for me, which tends to be a recurring issue whenever I look for a dress, is that my DDD's don't fit! I went through the reviews and saw busty girls who managed to fit theirs into this dress so I gave it a shot... No luck :( Also, I think it runs a bit small since it was a bit tight around my ribcage. If the fabric was a bit more stretchy, I think I would've been able to squeeze myself in. Anyhow, I'll make my best to loose some weight just to be able to get this dress some other time because I'm in love.. challenge accepted!

Cute Dress, Great Night

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
Rented for anniversary dinner, there is a side zipper (description says back zipper). The back has a few decorative buttons, one real button at the top. The dress is a little challenging to get on as the fabric has no give, but once on, it is form fitting and glamorous. Again, the zipper can be tricky - i don't know how I would've gotten it on without help from my husband. Good length (mid-thigh), tight under armpits but not too noticeable, high high neck. Overall, felt glamorous wearing it!

This dress is classy and it showed off my figure! Gold would be good for Christmas-time!

Overall fit: True to Size

I'm a size zero (or size 25), small waist, but big butt for my size. I was concerned because other women had said that it was tight on the bottom, but I think the zero fit just fine (I didn't even try the size 2 on because the size 0 fit so well). I also don't have a large bust (really more of a 30A), but I didn't feel like I was swimming in it. Plus- you don't have to mess around with a strapless bra, which is a huge plus.

I wore this dress to a black tie wedding. It was absolutely perfect. The dress fit really well...maybe a little tight across the bust, but nothing uncomfortable. The lace is so gorgeous. QUALITY! Pictures really don't do it justice. From the time I walked in, I received so many compliments from both men and women. The entire experience with Rent the Runway has been nothing but positive. They make it so easy to feel confident in what you are wearing. I've got other dresses reserved for another wedding next weekend. I can't wait to get them!

Perfect for a fall wedding!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is so detailed, it didn't need much else in terms of accessories. I just wore simple gold earrings, simple black shoes, and a black purse. Even though it was form fitting, it was still easy to dance in. I have other Milly dresses -- all size 2 -- so I almost didn't get the second size. Very glad I did because the 2 was way too tight in the bust. Overall, a great pick. I wish I didn't have to send it back!

Conservative, yet classy dress. I'm 5'2 and the dress came down past my knees, so if you're under 5'4 you may want to use fashion tape to "hem" it. It is also a great dress for women who are a little busty.

The fit was great. It was a little longer than I thought, but that worked fine. The only con is that the fabric is a little itchy, so under the arms is a little irritating. Other than that it worked perfect for a formal wedding at the Four Seasons in Miami.

Black tie optional wedding

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress for a black tie optional wedding. The only complaint/issue I have is that there is no forgiveness from the bow! Overall, it fit comfortably, but is quite tight in that area, especially if you have a larger rib cage. It's also a bit of a job getting the zipper up. Otherwise, I enjoyed wearing it, and received several compliments.

This dress runs true to size. The one negative that I will say is that it's quite itchy in the shoulder and collar area. The lace rubbed against all of those spots when I was dancing, walking, etc. It's beautiful and vibrant in person, though.

This dress as great for a casual evening wedding outdoors! It runs a little small - I always wear a 0, but for this dress I had to wear a size 2. I loved the combination of gold next to black lace.

Timeless, classic, elegant and perfect for the formal wedding at the Nixon Library in Yorba Linda,CA

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
There is no stretch to the fabric which makes the dress very true to its size. I usually wear a size 8-10 but I have a little extra in the bust area so the size 8 was tight in the upper area and the size 10 was a little loose in the bust area but, it looked well fitted and very appropriate. It was comfortable, easy to dance in, looked great for the black tie wedding I attended at the Nixon Library in Yorba Linda, CA, looks great in photos, and it's an amazing classic yet sexy and elegant style and fit. The only thing I can think of that was a little "egh" material felt scratchy under the arms. Other than that tiny tiny thing, the dress was absolutely amazing.

The dress fit perfectly and was really pretty. My only complaint is that the material along the neckline was not pressed very well, so the dress didn't lay completely flat across the neckline. Other than that, this dress is amazing and I would highly recommend it for a formal function.

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size

This dress was perfect for the black tie event I attended. The fabric is even prettier in person. I would say the fit is a bit snug but I usually wear an 8 and never even tried on my back up size 10. It fit like it was made for me. The zipper does stick at the top but it eventually went up with the help of my husband. I would recommend gold shoes to elongate the leg but the black worked fine. I also rented the earrings shown on the model and they were gorgeous! Great experience overall!!

Gorgeous dress, but not my favorite. It was a very stiff dress that I had to stand up straight to make sure it fit me well. While sitting it bunched and it was hard to get into and out of my dinner seat. The pattern and design were beautiful, but I think I may not have had the right proportions for this dress. I have a short torso, and I felt this dress, thought it fit, would have worked better on someone with a longer torso.

I ordered the 0 and 2 since I wear both sizes depending on brand/designer. The 0 was really tight around the ribcage so I went with the 2 for comfort. It still fit really well.

This dress was perfect. It fit like I had it made for me. The top portion of the dress was darker gold in person than it appears in the picture which I actually liked better. And the black belt has a little bow on the front which is nice, plus it makes your waist look tiny! Highly recommend this dress for any fancy occasion. I would buy it in a second!

This dress is gorgeous and I received so many compliments! We had last minute NYE plans and I ordered the dress on Monday, 1/30/13 at 2:47pm. It arrived at my door the next day by 1pm. I was AMAZED! The dress was clean and perfectly laid out. I reserved both the size 2 and the 4. The 2 fit but was so tight around my ribcage area so I wore the 4 and was comfortable! I already rented 2 more dresses for upcoming events. I am officially HOOKED.

The perfect New Years Eve dress!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I read the reviews so I knew it would run small and ordered a 12 even though I normally wear a 10. The 12 was perfect. It was a tiny bit big on top, but not really a problem - it showed off my curves in all the right places, and made me look even skinnier than normal. I absolutely loved how it looked and felt beautiful and sexy in it. The only con was sitting down had to be done carefully, but as I was standing most of the night it wasn't a big deal at all and didn't take away from how much I loved how I looked in the dress!!!

Great NYE dress!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress for NYE-it was perfect. I was worried because I ordered the 6 and the 8 and the 8 was not available . I usually wear a 6 however the reviews recommended to size up (which i've had to do before on another tighter fitting dress). The 6 fit perfectly. I would not even had tried on the 8 if I had it. I am smaller up top so the ribbon was not tight on my rib cage/stomach area at all and I had no problems breathing! I did not have any problems with the gold being itchy under the arms and the length was the perfect (5'6 and hit above the knee). Highly recommend this dress! i wanted to wear it one more time before I had to ship it back. Definitely going to be a favorite!

Great dress for a wedding in Southern California.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I got both a size 6 and 8 because ever since losing weight for my wedding six months ago, I have no idea what size I am. It turns out the 8 was way to big and the 6 fit just right. The waist was a tad small, but I could sit which is always key. I went with a silhouette that I know works on me to be safe as it was my first RTR experience and I got a ton of compliments. The ribbon that wraps around the dress was frayed a bit in the front, but you really couldn't see it. I have to admit wearing a dress someone else has worn really weirded me out which is why it's taken me a while to pull the trigger despite almost renting many times, but the compliments I got plus the ease at which RTR makes the whole process really makes it worth while. I do like owning my own dresses, but it was a fun experience and I will definitely use the service again.
