Love this dress!!
I don't think I'll ever be able to afford a Monique Lhuillier dress myself so renting it is an amazing opportunity. Rented it as a bridesmaid for my friends wedding. It's beautiful and fits true to size. Only problem is that there's a giant hole at the bottom. I wish they'd check and or fix that before they sent it to me. I'm just hoping it doesn't show up in pictures.

Great dress. I am 5'3" and wore with 4 - 5" heels and it was the perfect length.
Great for petites. The pink is a beautiful shade and stood out in a sea of black formal dresses

Let me start out by saying, I love this dress!
Now that I've gotten that out of the way....I'm 5'7" tall and weight 142 lbs. I ordered the 8L and the 10L just in case. Thankfully the 8L fit perfectly because the 10L wasn't able to be shipped because it came back in late or damaged. The length was just right on me with 4" heels. I'm not sure how someone any taller than about 5'9" could wear this dress without wearing just flats with it. But anyway, the fit was great, and the material is thick, so I didn't have to wear any shape wear under it. It hid my "imperfections" and I was truly happy about that. I got a lot of compliments on the color and the fit of the dress. So happy I went with Rent the Runway instead of spending a ton on a dress to buy that I probably will never get to wear again.

It was a formal gala and this dress was perfect for the theme of the party.
I got serveral compliments on the dress, the color is lovely! Its a corset type of fit so sitting, bending down and dancing were pretty much out of the question. Given its snug fit, its great for an hour glass type of body. Overall - happy with the dress and how it looked.

Fun night
I got my regular size and a size up for backup. I ended up going with the size up because my hips would not fit comfortably in my normal size. If you are a curvy girl like me with hips you need the a size up. The only problem I had was with the breast area the boning was sticking out under the both arms which bother a bit through the night. Over all I loved the dress it hugged all of my curves the right way. I got lots of great compliment throughout the night.

I wore this dress for a wedding.
I got my regular size and a size up for backup. I ended up going with the size up because my hips would not fit comfortably in my normal size. If you are a curvy girl like me, I would just honestly suggest you either go a size up or pick another dress. Since I had to go a size up, The bust area was a bit too large and I had to keep pulling my dress up. It wasn't terribly bad, but it easily got annoying. The dress itself was absolutely beautiful and I received tons of compliments all night, but unless you're tall and lean, you might run into some issues.

Simple yet eye catching
No give in the dress at all, but because of that everything stays in place :) it is loser in the midriff area but I think it's to accentuate the hips, which was very flattering. Fits best on an hourglass figure, true to size.

Mardi Gras Ball on Valentine's Day
I wore this to a Mardi Gras Ball on Valentine's Day and it was absolutely perfect! Being 5'2, I almost always have to get my gowns altered but this was the perfect length with my heels. It was such a bright, festive dress and I would definitely rent again!

I did not end up wearing the dress because the hip area fit good but the stomach area was huge and it made me look fat.

The size zero was way too big. I had to pin the inside just so it wouldn't fall down when I walked.

Pretty dress, but difficult fit.
This dress is very pretty, but the fabric has NO give, so if you're not shaped exactly like the dress, it will fit kind of awkwardly. I wore it anyway and it looked ok, but there was extra fabric at the hip and I felt a little self conscious in it.

Didn't fit. No stretch! Not meant for curvy girls
Although the dress was beautiful with color and lace, the cut and material of the dress doesn't allow for some hips or butt. I could barely breathe in the size 2 and the 4 bunched up in the hip area. No comfortable and I wound up returning it straight away!

Beautiful Color!
I used this dress for my engagement photos. It added a beautiful pop of color. My only complaint is that the hips were wide too wide for me. I have a wide back and small bust. The 6 was too narrow in the chest (material has no stretch), so I had to wear an 8. The hips are probably proportional for someone who is a classic size 8 but it was bulky for me. In some pics, it was noticeable and the material would bunch up, making me look wider than I am. I wouldn't rent this again because I would need to have this sort of dress tailored to ensure a perfect fit.

I attended the Marine Corps Ball and this dress definitely stood out in the sea of red dresses!
This dress was absolutely beautiful! It is more of a pale pink color than pictured (it's not as bright but still pretty). If you're curvier like me and a bit bigger in the bust area, I'd recommend sizing up since it's very form fitting. But also very flattering!

The silhouette of the dress is beautiful and the all over lace detail is very nice
The fit of the dress varies in different locations. The top of the dress fits snug but is hard to pull up in the back. I tried on the 10L as well but it was still hard to pull up in the back. The middle of the dress was a little loose/baggy feeling around the torso. The hips very very tight on me in bothe the 10L and 8L. It was hard to sit down without having to lift the dress and move things around. While standing it was fine and it was easy to walk. I'm 5'6 and I wore a. 4.5 inch heel and dress length was perfect it just covered my feet but did not drag on the ground and I didn't step on it. Overall I rate the dress an 8 out of 10... It was my second pick for dresses but I was satisfied with it. I received lots of compliments and it photographed well.

Perfect Marilyn Monroe!
Fits small for the designer. It was very tight! I'm used to wearing 10's in ML and this was up a size due to my hips. My measurements are 40" bust, 30"waist, and 42" hips. Great dress! Did the job!

Trully felt exceptionally classy and beautiful
I had initially picked another dress to wear and unfortunately, RR didn't have my backup size. They gave me the option to pick another dress as a backup free of charge. When the backup dress arrived, I wasn't too excited about the fit or the color either. RR went above and beyond my expectations. The wedding was in another city and they went ahead and mailed me another dress at my hotel free of charge in time for the event. They say 3rd times a charm and it sure was. I felt glamorous and elegant at the same time. The dress fit like a glove and even danced the night away with my daughter. Thank you RR, for your excellent customer service and making my experience hassle free

Wore it to a wedding. Beautiful dress; I received a lot of compliments on it.
The dress has a strap inside the dress to ensure you don't have to pull the dress up all night, which I appreciated. I'm in between sizes but decided to wear the size 12 so I had room for dinner.

Great Detail
I only wore this for a few moments, and decided I needed to switch dresses only due to venue. This dress is adorable and comfortable. Very soft and easy to wear. I was going to wear my cowboy boots with it and a bird cage veil for my after party wedding dress, but ended up wearing a full sequin dress from RTR. Great dress, great color for anyone.

Showstopper Dress!
I used this dress for one of my models for a recent show and it was incredible. It was the last dress of the night and definitely is a show stopper - only thing is if you are small chested make sure you get a padded bra because the top is a little loose. Other than that the fabric was fantastic, heave and expensive. The model was tall and the length was perfect for her! I definitely recommend this dress for a formal affair - the pink was a perfect blush shade and not overwhelming at all!

Great dress, got many compliments!
A little short, I should have gotten a long. The back comes down when sitting down and if you are wearing a bra may show. The dress is heavy material and very hot for an outside event in the summer, but it was very pretty and I enjoyed wearing this!

Dress didn't fit in 2 or 4 and so I didn't end up wearing it!
As other posters mentioned, the fit is a bit weird. The 4 was definitely too big and the 2 was a bit tight around the bust but then still really loose around the stomach area. The 2 so had a lot of wear and so I decided to just wear one of my own. The length was good though with 5 inch heels.

very fitted
Very fitted dress. If you have hips, this is not the dress for you. I could not zip it up and the back up larger size was not available because it was returned in a bad condition; however, RTR called me right away and recommended a different option and sent it over. Their customer service is awesome and it is why I keep renting from them.

I did not end up wearing this dress. While it fit, the fit was terrible- it was very unattractive.
I am very large chested, and while this dress did fit, the fit was awful. I ended up not wearing it at all.

Perfect rehearsal dress!
This dress was beautiful, I wore it for my wedding rehearsal. The lace fabric and materials were high quality, it is a well made dress. I am extra curvy, especially in the hips and this dress does NOT stretch at all. I have a very small waist so I had to accessorize with a belt so that it didn't look baggy in the middle. I tried on the 12L hoping it would fit better in the hips... it did, but then the waist was huge and the bust would fall down. I squeezed into the 10L with the help of extra supportive spanx. I wore the tallest shoes I own (over 4") and the length was perfect with a cute little train on the back.

color was awesome
The dress is very fitted. I loved the color, it was more of a deeper pink than I thought it would be. It would be a great prom dress, I felt a little "bubble gum" in it.
