I used this dress for a going away party.

I wear a size 38DDD, and this dress was a little tight in the bust area. I am so glad I ordered two sizes for this dress. The shoulders also were a little tight, but the dress was really beautiful. It is a bit long. I am not used to wear dresses that almost cover my knees. It is a heavy dress, and it has a lot of material and layers that go with it.

This dress was great. It was a good length and the skirt was twirly and flirty. The bust was a little tight but not uncomfortable. There are a lot of layers to the dress so it was a little heavy for a warm spring evening.

Great dress for Outdoor Fall Wedding

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress to a wedding outside in San Diego in October. I loved this dress so much, I wanted to keep it! Fair Warning: the lining is THICK!! So I would not recommend this for any outdoor event when you know it will be warm. I tend to be between size 8 and 10. While the 8 fit, the 10 fit better, but it is pretty true to size. It fit like a glove through the bust and the waist and flared out at just the right spot. The pockets were super helpful, too. Sleeves were a tiny bit tight, but nothing uncomfortable. It was a great dress to dance in and I received complements on it all night long. Would definitely rent again.

I wore this dress to my brother's wedding and it was perfect. I felt very comfortable. It obviously doesn't show cleavage and wasn't super short like I was worried about with other dress choices. I got a lot of compliments and felt very pretty.

Well built dress! Agree that the inner lining on the sleeves tended to poke out (easy to stick it back in there) and made it hard to raise your hand over your head, but otherwise would rent this again.

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

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.

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:)

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!

This is probably the greatest idea ever.

Size worn: 10
Rented for: Wedding
The fit was very true to size, the dress came down to about an inch above my knee (I'm 5'7") which was nice for a family wedding. The dress was a little heavy and got hot after a lot of dancing. However the wedding was in Savannah GA in summer so this dress would be more suited to a cooler climate. I wore this dress with nude wedges and a chunky silver necklace.

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!

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.

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!

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!!

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!

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.

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.

Great color, thick fabric, fun flirty skirt.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size

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.

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!

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.

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.

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)!

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.
