Great night, great dress!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is awesome! My boyfriend said it was the best dress I've worn, like ever. I figured out I'd rented the long navy blue version of this for a wedding previously, but I like the short version much better. The bright blue color, too, was great. So comfortable and so flattering with the thicker lining. I had to put together a bra that would work for this keyhole back dress, since I have a DD+ cup size, and do not rock bra-less well. I did a strapless convertible, moving the back straps far forward so they would rap around my arms close to my armpits, and with a low back bra converter that wrapped around my stomach. The fabric on the dress is thick, so you couldn't see the bra at all. I received a bunch of compliments on this dress and would definitely want to own something like this for any event!

Comfortable, pretty and convenient to rent!

Overall fit: True to Size

First rental from RTR. My order arrived on time and with gift baggies of gum and lotion. Nice touch! I ordered the 4 and the 6 since the stylists recommended sizing up because there is no stretch to the fabric around the hips. I might have been able to size down for a more snug fit in the waist. I wore those stick on bras with this dress, which I NEVER do, but the boning in this dress provides a decent amount of support, so I never felt uncomfortable. The bright color and the open back make this a really lovely dress.

Can't go wrong with Monique!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Rented this for a friend's January wedding, and loved both the bright cobalt blue color and the romantic feel of the lace. Was wedding-appropriate while still being sexy. Just two small (very small!) gripes: one, if you're a top-heavy chick like me, err on the side of caution and get a size bigger than you think you'll need - there is NO GIVE in the chest, so if you're trying to jam some 32DD's into a size 2 bust (true story), you're not going to be able to fasten it in back and you're going to be breathing pretty shallowly the whole time! I was able to comfortably fasten the size 4, though, and still could have probably gone up to a size 6 and still had the dress fit fine elsewhere (I'm tiny in the hips and butt). Second (tiny) gripe: when I sat down, the satin lining seemed to pucker out a tiny bit at the bottom of the dress, so it looked a bit odd - doubt anyone other than me really noticed, though, because the dress is JUST THAT GORGEOUS. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Overall fit: True to Size

I was in between a size 2 and 4 but decided to go with 4 so that I had a little room to eat, dance, and be comfortable. It was the perfect length and cut for a wedding because it was classic and elegant. The color was perfect for a winter wedding and I could imagine wearing this in the summer.

Both the 6 and 8 fit but I was more comfortable in the 8. Wore a backless bra but didn’t really need one. Lace on the dress was worn and looked stretched so I had to do some work on it before I wore it but it turned out ok.

This was my first RTR dress, and it was fabulous! Rented this for a friends wedding in October, and was perfect. The color is a very vibrant blue, brighter then online, but i loved it. You will need a second person to help clasp the lace in back, but I didn't have a problem with it coming unpinned during the night. Only problem was that the lining came down past the lace at the bottom; was an easy fix however with a few pins. I was able to dance all night in the dress, and got so many compliments! I hated to send this back!

This dress is the perfect mix of classy yet sexy, the open style back is amazing. One of the most comfortable dresses even with bigger hips. Did not want to return it. Would 100% rent this dress and the other three colors in the same style.

Wedding fun!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I loved this dress for the wedding I attended in the fall. The color was absolutely beautiful, and I loved the open back detail and cap sleeves. It was really comfortable to sit and dance in, as well. I couldn't wear a bra, but that wasn't an issue. My only complaint is that the dress would bunch up around my waist randomly throughout the night. Despite fitting pretty well overall, a few pictures were ruined because I forgot to straighten out the bottom of the dress. The next size up was WAY too big, so I was stuck with the bunching fabric. I would still recommend this dress though!

Size worn: 6

Such a beautiful dress, perfect for a wedding guest! My only small gripe about it was the hanger strings came out multiple times throughout the night. The size 6 was also a lot brighter than the size 8 which seemed to have a bit more wear. All in all such a pretty dress you won't be disappointed!

Customer service was amazing!

Size worn: 12
Rented for: Wedding
I originally ordered this dress in two sizes, and neither fit. Typically my dress size is slightly smaller than my clothing size, but with this dress I had to go a size up. Maybe I'm just unfamiliar with this brands sizing. Anyway, I emailed rent the runway customer service and they overnighted me the larger size. I will say with previous wears the lining can be a little weird, but the dress itself is amazing. The color is perfect, it fits beautifully, and I was complimented all night! It is slightly tough to make a bra work with the cutout but it is worth it. Perfect to attend a wedding!

I hosted a bridal shower and felt the stress melt away when I put on this dress! So many compliments

Size worn: 8
Rented for: Party
The back of the dress is gorgeous and amazing. The front is sexy without being in your face about it. And it is long enough to be conservative. This dress strikes the perfect balance between sexy and elegant. I wore a size up but could have made the 6 work as well. I just felt more comfortable in the 8. The hook and eye closures on the back are tricky so you will probably need someone to help you. Overall this is a great dress and I wish I owned it!!!

This was my first RTR experience back in August (the couple took forever to send photos from their wedding!). Everyone LOVED this dress; I felt amazing all day! I got a bra adjustor thing from RTR as well, which pulled the back of my bra down so it didn't show and I wasn't worrying about it. Get this dress! It's a game changer.

Gorgeous dress! Got so many comments on it! Ran a little tight through the shoulders so I ended up in the 14, which was a little too big in the bust. My only complaint was that the slip kept coming down below the lace but otherwise perfect !

I'm normally a size 4 but I went with the slightly snug 2. I was never uncomfortable but my dance moves were a little limited. The color of this dress was stunning! The length was classy and the lace was elegant. If you're short, I recommend some high heels! I looked a little frumpy in some camera angles, but overall I loved this dress.

Both the 6 and 8 fit. I knew that since I was wearing it all night that I would be more comfortable if I went with the 8. I got so many compliments from so many different people. It's a great color and great dress. I couldn't have been happier with my first RTR experience. I'm already planning out what I'm getting next for my next rental.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size

The dress is nice. The lace around the sleeves is rough cut (from the pictures I thought it would be like a clean scalloped edge). I don't think it went with my body type. The dress fit well but I don't think I have the curves that you need to make the dress look good. It was a nice dress, just underwhelming and didn't do anything wonderful for my body (but I did get plenty of compliments)

Tight in all the right places, has corset seaming in the bodice and even as a busty girl (36DDD) I didnt wear any kind of bra (first time in my life) and had plenty of support to dance the night away! Length was great for a wedding, and again, the cobalt blue color was gorgeous. Compliments all night!

I wore this dress for my friend's wedding at the end of March. It was the perfect length to be classy, but not frumpy! The color is more beautiful than in the pictures and the open back is a great touch! Fits true to size! Only draw backs: The lace around the shoulders is tight with no stretch at all and the lining was a little longer than the bottom of the dress (but nothing a safety pin couldn't handle!)

I was thrilled with this dress, however it didn't fit perfectly because I am 6' 1" tall. It was a little tight on my hips because it's not meant for someone my height. The size 8 was a little snug but the 10 was too big. The color, style, and lace were beautiful. I loved the keyhole back, though I did have to purchase a backless bra. I was so impressed with the simplicity of the process and have raved about RTR to all my friends.

I got a lot of compliments, the color was absolutely gorgeous, and my date loved it!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I normally wear a 4 in most bottoms (ex: lucky brand jeans) but wear an extra-small in t-shirts (ex: gap t-shirts or button downs) and generally an xs in dresses (ex: gap, jcrew, francescas). This means that my waist is pretty small while my butt is bigger. I started out with a 4 but had to run into the Washington, DC, store to get a 2. I DO think the dress runs true to size, but that the boning in the waist and tummy area made it hard for me to feel like it fit right because I generally wear either stretchier material (think bodycon, when going out) or use a belt to cinch my waist a bit more in other dresses. That being said, I absolutely loved the dress and managed to survive without highlighting the tiniest parts of my waist. The lace was incredibly beautiful. My only regret is that I didn't wear my hair up to highlight the open back. Speaking of which, you can't (and don't need to) wear a bra in this dress, which I adored.

I have to say I wasn't in love with the way the dress fit me but I did receive many compliments on it. The color was stunning and the lace detail was beautiful. I am so glad I read the reviews prior to renting this dress, because people said it runs small I ordered the 4 and the 6 and while I could have worn either of them the 6 felt a little to "frumpy" for me and the 4 was the better fit. Great length for a wedding and covered enough to be church appropriate. This was my first experience with Rent the Runway and I'm already telling all my friends about it.

This dress was perfect for a Charleston spring wedding

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I ordered the 0 and the 2 because other reviews talked about the top portion being a bit tight in the ribcage and I'm usually between either size. The 0 fit perfectly, the only size issue I had was the skirt was a bit tight for my liking since it's a pencil skirt. The top part with the eye hook closures does have a tendency to undo here and there so I had to keep my eye on that too.

It was a little snug in the hips, and then loose (for me) in the shoulders where the clasps come together on the back. But it wasn't a big deal, it still looked and felt great!
