Beauitful dress... for a beautiful night!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
The dress is beautiful, it's very classy and still sexy. I ordered a 2 and a 4 and really went back and forth on which one to wear. The 2 fit my bottom half perfectly but was TIGHT on top especially in the arms which is rare for me, I have really thin arms and at a 34B I almost never find anything to be too tight through my bust. The 4 fit my top great but was too big in the hips and just looked weird..... I ended up going with the 2 but would advise anyone with a bigger bust or arms to save yourself the stress of having to find another dress the day before your event, and avoid this one altogether.

Classy and comfortable dress for a fall or winter event!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I was really happy with this dress! I typically wear an 8 but it wasn't available for the weekend that I needed it so I ended up going with the 10. It wasn't quite as fitted, which was mostly noticeable in my midsection (as you can see in the photo), but other than that I don't think it looked too big. If I rented it again I would go with the 8 though. The RtR photos of the dress make it look like there's a sheer panel in the mid-section, but the dress I rented didn't have that. I'm 5'11" so I loved that it was a little longer (it hit me below the knees) but with the sheerness of the lace it didn't look too mature. The sleeves weren't tight or itchy either, which I was really happy about! Another great Rent the Runway experience!

Gorgeous color, elegant dress

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I loved this dress. The saturated teal color is beautiful, as is the lace detail. I wore it for an evening religious service where I wanted something fairly conservative but pretty. This fit the bill perfectly. As another reviewer noted, the dress does NOT have a sheer midriff panel. I hadn't noticed that in the photo/description and I'm relieved it wasn't there. I'm 5/3" and the lace fell past my knees, but the slip underneath was a bit above the knee so it didn't feel too matronly.

Gorgeous color & lace!!!

Size worn: 6
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is stunning. The length is very elegant. The dress is form fitting. I'm normally a size 4-8 in dresses depending on the designer and this 6 fit like a glove. This was not my original choice, but RTR sent it as a backup with my original dress. Thank god they did because the original dress came in damaged. Another successful rental!

Size worn: 8

This dress was the perfect length for my long frame. I felt comfortable and elegant at the semi-formal event. The 3/4 sleeves and length, as well as the subtle shade, made it feel conservative while still stunning my husband.

Incredible customer support from RTR got me a dress just in time for my work event!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
This dress wasn't my first choice; or even 4th choice for my office holiday party but after learning that my original rentals were too damaged to ship I was sent this option based on availability (I was notified about 48 hours before the event). This dress was 1 of several that RTR staff selected on my behalf and I really was pleased with this one. It was comfortable; appropriate for a holiday work event and I received lots of compliments. I would rent it again because I found it very unique yet universal enough for lots of situations to wear it.

Festive office Christmas party!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Even though I'm only 5'3" the length was perfect. The dress is conservative but not overly so due to the sheer panel on the chest and the legs as well. There is just the right amount of stretch and the slip is attached so there is no worry about it riding up. I think this sheath dress would be wonderful on just about any body type. The color is a bit more emerald green and less blue undertones than it appears on the website. Perfect dress for my event and would rent it again.

Great for semi-formal event. Feminine and flattering, youthful, totally appropriate for work event.

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Elegant dress. Hit me farther below the knee than on the model, but this was not a problem. No tight areas. I could have worn the 8, but went for 10, which draped better, with fabric appearing smoother and slimming. One minor issue was that I chose to wear a super control top pantyhose, which worked well, but created a crease at my waistline which was somewhat visible with the dress on (I had initially tried on the dress without the pantyhose and the silhouette was better), but that was a problem with the pantyhose waistband and not the dress. Wore with a regular, nude bra, no problem. Dark teal color was great, not too flashy, which was just what I wanted. Made me appear shapely and attractive without being unnecessarily revealing. Husband approved.

This dress was beautiful! I received so many compliments.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
It was the perfect fit for a winter, evening wedding. I have an athletic build with a wide chest but zero boobs and thick butt/thigh area. I usually have a size 4 waist but size 6-8 butt/thighs. There was a bit of room in the stomach area, but the material hid it well. I thought that the sleeves would be too tight but they were stretchy and fit fine. I am 5'8" and the dress laid right over my knees- just what I was hoping for. There is a solid piece of material under the lace- no gap in the midriff area as shown in the pictures.

The dress fit well and was a gorgeous color. It was easy to move and sit in. The lace wasn't scratchy. The sleeves were fitted on my athletic arms, but not uncomfortable. I received several compliments. I would order this dress again. (There is not a sheer area on the waist like on the model photo... thank goodness.)

I have rented from RTR twice before and have worn an 8 both times no problem, this dress I had to wear the 10. I am short so it looked too long on me, but I still liked it a lot. It's pretty heavy as well, but was not unconformable or warm.

Can not say enough great things about this dress!! Was a perfect dress for an early spring bridal shower and was super comfortable! Love the length of this dress, being 5'11" it is near impossible to find a dress that hits me at the knees (when it's supposed to) and this one did exactly that!!!

I wear a 2 in a lot of clothing brands (like J Crew and BR) , but in this dress I needed the size 4. It hugged my body nicely but wasn't too tight. I got lots of compliments on the dress. I wore it to a winter wedding. I always get cold so having a dress with sleeves in the winter months is important for me. Overall I was happy with this dress.

Stunning. This dress fit like it was made for me. I have a 1950's hourglass figure but I am really self conscious about my upper arms. I often have to get a dress/shirt in a larger size for the arm width. My husband asked if he could buy me the dress, regardless of the retail price. I will be renting this one again soon. BTW- the 8 was only "slightly" bigger than the 6, so if you're in between sizes, go smaller

The cut is great -- slim but not confining. Beautiful lace. I wore it with flesh-toned patent slingbacks. The advisor at the store suggested I not wear a necklace, just earrings and a bracelet, so as not to compete with the lace at the neckline, but if I rented it again I think I would wear a simple jeweled choker. And the customer service is outstanding at RTR.

I actually rented another dress, and when I was picking it up I saw this one in the Flatiron store. Simple and classic. I felt like Joan from Mad Men :) Fits tight in all the right places, but still conservative enough for a cocktail event. It was a littttle snug under the arms, but other than that perfect fit, looked like I had it tailored. The color is gorgeous, I paired it with a pink/red lipstick and minimal eye makeup. Great rental, would definitely rent it again.
