This dress was the perfect mix of formality, playfulness while being very wearable

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: True to Size

Wore for an outdoor evening wedding in SF. With the fog coming in, the layers in this dress was perfect for the cold. Should have thought out a jacket, but this cardigan was ok in a pinch. The pockets were fantastic for storing my phone and lipstick, no purse needed. When we moved inside for dinner, it did get a bit warm. Was sad to see the dress leave my wardrobe.

Perfect for a company holiday party!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is absolutely beautiful! I ordered an 8 and a 10 due to the fabric not stretching. I would have been most comfortable in the 10, but there was a noticeable hole on the front, so I wore the 8 and it was still lovely. The lining made it a wonderfully warm choice for a chilly December night.

Was an overall very comfortable dress! Ran true to size and fit me great. Only thing was that it is a heavy material so a June wedding was not the best time for it, but it still looked great!

The dress was a little tight around the bust but if I had gone up a size, it would have been too big everywhere else. Not a lot of give to the fabric, but it turned out great. :)

Overall I loved this dress and wish I could own it. The arms were a little tight, but I was still able to move comfortably. I was unsure how this cut would look on me but it was very flattering and I received a lot of compliments. I would definitely rent this again.

Wore this for a rehearsal dinner at a winter wedding and it was perfect. I have an athletic build so the arms were a little tight but I still went with the 6 because it fit better everywhere else. It's thicket fabric makes it perfect for a cooler night. Got tons of compliments on it! Would definitely consider renting it again.

Gorgeous and unique color

Size worn: 6
Rented for: Wedding
Gorgeous color and very appropriate for a wedding. I felt great wearing it and the lining made the skirt flare out perfectly. The only downside was some fraying in the lace around the hem and sleeves. The dress does run a bit tight especially in the arms, so if you have more muscular arms definitely size up!

I rented this for Valentine's Dinner. It ran a little tight in the shoulders I definitely went with the 12. I think it would've looked great with a small belt but we were running a little late so I just forgot about it.

I did not end up wearing this dress because I just thought the other one was better for the occasion, but this one was beautiful! It was very comfy and the color is even lovelier in person. I just thought it came off as more day than night. Loved it!

I stood out in the crowd, and it was so different from anything I've ever owned!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I am normally a 10, I went up to the 12 to accommodate my problem area- my arms. The 10 fit me like a glove but it was nice to have some room to dance in the 12, especially because the fabric has no stretch at all. This is a fairly thick dress so I would not recommend wearing in the warmer months/warmer climates if you plan to be outside for long or dance much... It got hot! But I would certainly rent this dress again in any color it comes in.

Great color! Heavy fabric (great for cold nights)

Size worn: 4
Rented for: Formal Affair
I am usually a size 2, but based on some reviews decided to order the size 4 as well. I'm glad I did! The shoulders and arms were tighter than I thought they would be so I ended up wearing the size 4 which was much better fitting, though still slightly big around my hips. The dress arrived was in great condition. And is a really pretty color. It was a heavier material, which I was thankful for because I wore it for a formal charity event in March when it was freezing outside. In my opinion I would not wear this in warm weather because of the heaviness. Overall, a good dress! I paired it with black scrappy shoes and a chunky sparkly necklace (also rented)!

This dress made my anniversary perfect!!

Size worn: 2
Rented for: Date
I tried on the size 4 first. That fit very nice, and I was happy with it. I tried on the size 2 just to see, and the 2 was perfect! Fit amazing in all the right places. Then was loose in the bottom. The dress came right above my knee. I am 5"2' and worse 3 inch heels. I got a lot of compliments at the restaurant. My boyfriend said he was the luckiest man to have such a beautiful woman. Thanks RTR

Classic, feminine, & sophisticated

Size worn: 4
Rented for: Other
I needed a ladylike dress to wear to my future sister-in-laws afternoon tea bridal shower. I was cohosting, so it was important that I had free range of movement while still looking somewhat sophisticated. This dress for the bill perfectly: conservative cuts, beautiful lace, and a full skirt that kept me covered while running around/bending over. The dress even has hidden pockets that allowed me to store my cell phone so that I wasn't holding it in my hand in between taking pictures. I highly recommend this dress for an event where you don't want to have to worry about continuously fixing your hem, straps, spans, etc. The fit was also true to size but would be great for pear shaped ladies since the skirt is roomy.

Beautiful dress - great color, good fit

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size

I wore this to my workplace's annual fundraiser and received a lot of compliments on the dress. I loved the bright plum color and the pockets. The 4 fit me well and it was in very good condition aside from just one or two loose strings on one seam. I was worried that the sleeves would feel tight after reading other reviews, but they were comfortable. However, if I had been dancing/raising my arms above my head, that would have been difficult. The whole process was really easy and fun!

Great color, thick fabric, fun flirty skirt.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I rented this for work and it was amazing! The sleeves were a little tight but it also stretched a bit with wear and felt very comfy. The skirt was long enough to conceal my microphone and battery packs (I'm a news anchor) and I loved the pockets. Got a ton of compliments on this dress and my only issue is that the fabric was very thick which made it a little warm under the lights on set. Will rent this again in other colors.

Fabulous color and elegant for Easter

Size worn: 10
Rented for: Other
Color will be noticed by everyone - rich plum/purple; all lace fabric gives it very elegant look. It set nicely in all the right places so I didn't have to fidget with or pick at it on Easter Sunday. Not too flattering on poochy tummy. Wore the 10 instead of 8 because the 8 was too snug thru chest since it zips so high in the back.

The sleeves were pretty tight on me (which I expect since my arms are huge) and the pockets on the dress will make your hips look wider. However, it's a beautiful color and is super well made so I would recommend this dress if you can get past the aforementioned issues.

This dress fit very true to size. I received many compliments on this dress and many commented on its brilliant color. The dress was fully lined, including the sleeves which made it very comfortable. A no-nonsense dress. A regular bra can be worn and it probably could even be worn without a necklace! It even has pockets!

This was my first time ordering from Rent the Runway. I ordered the size 2 and 4 and even though I have always been a 2 the 4 seemed to fit better in my shoulders which tend to be a little wide. I loved the feel of this dress and how it flared out a little at the waist. I can't wait to rent again from Rent the Runway!!

Size worn: 6

I wore this dress for my #graduation from Florida State University. On the website it looked to be more garnet, but in person the color was more on the purple side, which was fine. The color was actually gorgeous and different from what most were wearing. The sleeves on the 4 were kind of tight so I went with the 6 and it fit perfectly with room to breathe. I got lots of compliments in the dress and felt beautiful in it! My overall experience was great and I will definitely be using RTR again!

So comfortable. Pockets!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress is so comfortable! The sleeves+length were perfect for our Southern town's outdoor, late-spring event. Beautifully made, the lining is nice & heavy. Only complaint would be that the lining in the sleeves can slip down below the lace, but the pockets more than make up for that. I had my phone & lipgloss in one pocket with ID in the other. I'm uncomfortable with my upper arms right now, so the style was nice. Deep purple is a little dark for spring/summer, but here I am in the spring & it was a great pick. I ordered the 10 & the 8, but the 10 was a perfect fit. Consider going up for your extra size.

Sleeves were a little tight but manageable. Pockets wouldn't lay flat and were slightly unflattering to hips. But very convenient for cell phone and lip gloss!

The dress was gorgeous! I loved wearing it and felt like a movie star. I am usually a size 6 and ended up wearing the 8 that was my free second size. There is almost no up-and-down arm mobility but thankfully I didn't need to lift anything or move like that. I got many many compliments. And if you are curious about what exactly this purple looks like, it is the same purple that Episcopal bishops wear!

Loved everything!

Size worn: 6
Rented for: Date
As other reviews state, it did run smaller in the arms. We went out in early May and were outside for a good part of the night so the weight of the dress was perfect. It would definitely not be good for a hot summer day, the lining is pretty think, but for my night it was perfect, I didn't need a coat but wasn't too warm either. I received compliments from the moment we left on how gorgeous the dress was. I am very pear shaped and flat chested so this worked well, although was a tad big in the chest. But hid my big hips very well:)
