Beautiful color

Short. I'm 5'3 and it was almost too short. It's NOT light weight. So avoid for hot summer days. Good fit. Loved the pockets

Color is great. A lot richer and more of a royal blue in person.

Wore this for a TV interview with the necklace it's pictured with. It's a little short for me (I'm 5'4"), but others thought it was fine. Runs a little small. I'm usually ok in a 18 or 20, but the 22 fit perfectly (except for length). Love the sleeve length. Very flattering, just... Short.

Standout color, perfect dress for a more conservative wedding.

Size worn: 20W
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I loved the high neckline and sleeves on this dress because I have a few tattoos and I needed to cover them for a very conservative wedding. This dress did all that and more! I received so many compliments throughout the night. The dress does run a bit small, I'm usually a 16/18 thankfully I got an 18 and a 20 for my backup. Ended up wearing the 20, though it was still a little snug--but not uncomfortable at all! The ends of the lace on this dress need some touching up, but for this price, it's so worth it! Will definitely use this service again.

It may be a little short for some but the length made my legs look LONG and I'm only 5'4". I am in love with the dress. It is very flattering and well made.

Beautiful color! Got lots of compliments.

Size worn: 22W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The dress is very vibrant - a true cobalt blue. The 22 fit easily even over my size 42DDD bra. Most of the reviews for this dress mention that it's short - they are right! The dress felt pretty short, but it's definitely cute and wearable for short girls (I'm 5'3ish and it worked fine with the length). It's great for a fall wedding. Might be a little heavy/hot for summer - it's fully lined and a pretty heavy dress in general.

Wine themed wedding on a cool September evening.

Size worn: 16W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress to a wedding on a cool September evening. I got so many complements on this dress and felt beautiful in it. It was a little heavy, but perfect for a fall evening. The arms were a little snug, but wearable and not too noticeable. The dress was every comfortable and I wish I had rented it for a pervious wedding in a different color.

The dress was gorgeous and perfectly suited for the event. It complimented by body. It was a hit.

Size worn: 18W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The fit was great. It was true to size. Not tight around my waist or hips and perfectly sized to my arms, which is always a problem for me because I have big arms. Overall, I didn't have any issues with the dress other than it being a little wider in my back than I needed. But it was barely noticeable. This dress was in great condition, the fabric was well kept. The dress was a hit, everybody loved it and thought that I looked great in it. Had a great night and I felt pretty and the dress.

Great Color

Size worn: 16W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I absolutely loved this dress and got many compliments the whole night! The color is a very vibrant royal blue, not what is shown on the model photos. And the other reviewers are correct, the sleeves are a bit snug, but I was still comfortable enough to dance. I was a bit nervous about the length from the reviews but it was a nice length for an outdoor wedding. I'm 5'5" and it was fine with flats or heels. It IS a heavier dress so it is definitely one you won't want to wear in hot weather. For my late September wedding we had 80 degree weather and I was a bit hot out in the sun but the dress was perfect for the cooler temps later in the night! All in all, a wonderful dress! I would definitely rent it again!

I am usually a 14-16 but had to size up to 18 in this dress. I figured I might have to because I'm pretty busty (40 G). The dress is fully lined so if your event is outdoor I'd recommend only for cooler temperatures. Way too hot for Phoenix!

This was a dream to wear! I loved the brilliant royal blue lace and the pockets! The dress was double-lined with nude satin, so no chance of seeing through the lace. The sleeves can be a little tight, but I didn't feel uncomfortable or restricted. Some people commented that the dress is a little short, but it felt just right to me. Would definitely rent this beauty again. I wished it were mine to keep!

The color is more vivid/darker than the photo indicates (not a bad thing just good to know). There are 2 light layers under the blue lace -one of which is very silky so no need for a slip- and is very figure flattering!

This is a missus 16 really not a women's. It fit well and was flattering. I would rent this again for a different event. The skirt looks like it would fly away but it has some weight to it and there are pockets! The lace is soft and the color is vibrant!

I felt great and got lots of compliments!

Size worn: 16W
Rented for: Formal Affair
My order came right on time in a great garment bag with some travel size toiletries. It was really nicely lined with satin and had four layers for the skirt. I wore it with nylons and nude pumps. It fit well and I felt great in it. I'm usually a 14 or a 16 and was a bit disappointed that most dresses go up to a 14 and then seem to switch to "plus" sizes starting at 16. So I ordered the 16w and didn't order a second size, risking that it would fit. Not sure what the W stands for, wide? However, you couldn't order it without the W. Luckily it all worked out. Just wish there wasn't such a jump. I did find the other reviews really helpful. I had read that the sleeves ran small, so I went to the size up. I will definitely be using this service again, it was such a great option!

I ordered this dress for my company holiday party. I went with a size 16W because I typically wear a 14, though I ordered a similar dress a few months back and the 14 was a bit too snug. The 16W was a bit roomy up top, but it worked out fine because it allowed for lots of movement.

Great dress! Very comfortable!!

Size worn: 20W
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress for a New Year's Eve party and it was perfect! It is very true to fit I usually wear a size 16 in jeans and the 16 did fit but just was a little tight in the arms. The 18 would have been perfect but was not available when I ordered. I wore the 20 and even tho it was a little big in some parts it still looked great! The material of this dress was also great and I felt like a million bucks!

Very well lined, so it was very flattering. Very comfortable. Wouldn't recommend in the summer, might be hot. No give in fabric whatsoever, so do keep that in mind. I'm short and it was the perfect length. Truly, received compliments all night long.

Lovely dress. Lovely compliments!

Size worn: 18W
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress made me feel beautiful! The blue color is so striking, and just like other reviewers pointed out, much more deep cobalt blue than what shows on the model. The lining is rich and silky. There's a nice hidden crinoline layered into the skirt. I also rented the necklace the model is wearing, which could not be more perfect with this dress and really kicks the whole look up a notch! I received so many compliments on this dress and the Mister loved it as well! I would have given this dress five stars, but I felt it needed a few extra inches of length. There is no bending down to pick up anything in this dress. If you enjoy burning up the dance floor, just beware that other people might get a show they didn't pay to see ;) But, altogether, this is just a lovely dress and very comfortable. It does run small in my opinion. Just to give you an example, I typically wear a 16 dress size. I rented two different dresses for two separate events I was attending on the same weekend with the same group of people. The first night's dress, I wore a 14w. In this particular dress, I wore an 18w. Definitely read the reviews and order a backup size!

Perfect pop of color!

Size worn: 18W
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was so great! I usually wear a 14, but ordered up because of the ML size chart, and I definitely could have worn the 16, but decided to be a bit more comfortable and went with the 18. It's a nice heavy material and a great pop of color - the pockets were great, too! I just had a baby, so the fact that this dress didn't cling and accented my figure was just what I was looking for! So happy I finally tried RTR because, as a curvy woman, wearing a well-made and well-designed dress does wonders for my figure and confidence.

Stylist Review!

Size worn: 16W
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
This style is amazing! I like it so much better in person that it is shown on the site! The color is much more vibrant in person and really pops! It goes great with any skin tone. The cut if flattering for most body types. The underlay has very little stretch to it, and the style, itself, runs small. So, I would take that into consideration and definitely size up for the backup. The underlay is also not a very breathable material, so it will be easier to get warm throughout an event in this style. The length is perfect and it's a young and fresh style! I would definitely rent this!

I recently gained some weight so I was a little skeptical about how this dress would look. I carry most of my weight in my stomach and this dress was great a hiding my trouble spot. It does run a bit small and I was in between sizes, but decided to go with the 18 over the 20. The color is stunning, the pockets are a great bonus, and I received many compliments.

Customer service - can't thank them enough

Size worn: 22W
Rented for: Other
I originally rented this dress for my daughters Sunday baptism because I knew it would be perfect for a spring day and appropriate for church . The event had to be canceled as my mother in law tragically passed away the day before . I was supposed to return the dress Monday but I contacted customer service by email and asked them if I could pay more to keep the dress to wear to the wake Thursday night - I had so many things to do that week that shopping felt overwhelming to me and I knew the modest cut of the dress was appropriate for the occasion. Customer service was amazing and let me keep the dress with no additional charge to wear for the wake and return on Friday. I have loved rent the runway and their customer service for a long time but now I am a lifelong customer and will never forget they did this for me . In such a horrible time in my life this little gesture meant a lot to me and truly made a difference . I had so many compliments on this dress and I told everyone the story about RTR and their amazing customer service. So now the dress ! It's lined with a very silly comfortable and cool material very comfortable to wear - it has pockets which is amazing ! The blue is vibrant and beautiful ( I was afraid too bright for the wake but everyone told me to wear it and that it was perfect although I really wish I was wearing it to the baptism instead of a sad event ) . The way the waist falls and skirt flails out is very flattering and made me feel great. No spanx needed girls.The neck cut is very modest and I usually hate cuts so high to my neck but knew for the baptism or what ended up being the wake it was very appropriate . I ended up wearing the bigger size 22 although the 20 fit me better just for a tiny more length - just standing straight the length was perfect but raising my arms up the dress rose up a little short . Since I wore the bigger size it was a little lose especially at the neck but I was comfortable and it still looked great. The sleeves are perfect if your self conscious about your arms. Overall this is a beautiful dress I would rent again and I can not thank the company and customer service enough for being so amazing. I ended up renting another dress for the funeral as well . I love RTR and am so thankful this company exists!

Size worn: 18W
Rented for: Formal Affair
This was my first experience with RTR, and it was a fantastic one. I have never had so many compliments on a dress before. I usually wear a 16. I got the 18 and 20 to be careful based on the reviews that it runs a small. The 18 was perfect. The color, the lace, the sleeves, the length, the lining - they were all wonderful. I highly recommend this dress and RTR in general. Great experience!

I rented this dress for my daughter's college graduation. I got both the 16 and the 18 because the reviews said it ran a bit small. I normally wear a 16 and that was the one I did wear. It fit very well. It was a bit tight in the arms but it was not uncomfortable. I felt so comfortable in this dress and received so many compliments on it! I am only 5' 4" and I liked the length. If you are taller, it could be a bit shorter on you. And I loved the pockets!!!! I do recommend getting 2 sizes just in case! I will rent this again!!!

First time renting, wanted something new from my friends wedding in Nashville.

Size worn: 22W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Absolutely loved the color!l its in between a cobalt color but sometimes depending on the lighting looks purple. its was just a tad big around the neck ( only noticed in the back), but fit around the bust. I needed to go up a bigger size due to my bust. The pockets were a plus :) A little short but still appropriate to wear to an evening wedding.

This dress made me feel gorgeous! Very comfortable and amazing color!

Size worn: 18W
Rented for: Wedding
I normally wear a 14, but I ordered the 16 and 18 because I have larger arms and wanted to be sure it was comfortable. The 16 fit nicely but I liked the even looser feel of the 18 since the dress was so heavy and warm. The lining feels amazing tho the dress is not scratchy at all. This was a replacement dress and it arrived just in time for my event! So happy!

Pretty and unique dress, makes you subtly stand out!

Size worn: 18W
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
The 16w ran small for me, I usually wear a 14. I actually had to opt for the 18w because of a stain I found on the 16w. Thankfully it wasn't too big of a difference and I was still able to wear it. I got a lot of compliments for my dress and I felt comfortable in it. RTR support was also generous and responsive, addressing my concern about the stain. Thank you! Will be renting for every wedding this year!
