Comfortable and very flattering dress

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I ordered a size 8 and 6 and wore the size 8. It was perfect for a winery wedding - very comfortable to dance in. Only pet peeve was that the hooks on the back of the dress unhooked at least three times. Otherwise, it's a great dress.

Unfortunately, dresses were in such terrible condition that they were completely unwearable!

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I could tell that this had been an absolutely gorgeous dress at one time. But, by the time I got it, it was pretty much completely destroyed. The lace was torn and worn all over. This was particularly a problem at the neckline--it was so worn that it sould not lay flat and looked terrible. (this was true for both sizes I received) I had been looking forward to this dress and, like an idiot, did not have any back-up so had to do a last minute scramble to find something to wear. Not a good experience. Please note: I am only giving the dress one star because it won't let me submit this review with giving a rating. If I had the choice, it would be no stars!

Beautiful, classy dress!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This was my first RTR experience and I was thrilled! I was a bit nervous as I'd planned to get the 6 as a backup size and it was unavailable, but the 4 fit like a glove (I'm 5'7, 130, 34B/C). The dress is gorgeous, very classy, and the back detail is, of course, amazing! I really loved the overall look and also the fact that it came to right above my knee--not too short for a wedding with lots of family members present. I'd also been a bit nervous reading some of the reviews saying the dress looked worn or damaged, but mine looked great. I did notice one very tiny tear in the lace in the underarm area, but it was completely unnoticeable when the dress was on and the RTR stylist I mentioned it to was very responsive and assured me it would be repaired for the next renter. Service overall was phenomenal and I'll definitely be renting again!

Felt like a MILLION BUCKS!

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This was my first RTR experience, so I was a little nervous renting a dress for my bridal shower. I even went to the mall and bought a cheap back up just in case. I received the dress right on time and the dresses arrived in excellent condition. I ordered a Size 0 and back up size 2. I ended up wearing the size 0 which fit perfectly. As soon as I put on the dress I felt like a million bucks! Words cannot express how beautiful this dress really is. I got stopped several times during the day by strangers telling me how gorgeous I was. I've never had felt like a movie star until I put on this dress. It was the hardest thing in the world to send it back. I'm contemplating saving up to buy it one day, as it is worth EVERY PENNY!!!! Thanks RTR for making me feel beautiful!

The fit was true to size. I am a bigger girl so I was nervous that it would not fit me well but it was a perfect fit, in all the right places. This dress can definitely be worn without a bra or with a backless/strapless bra. I went without one and my boobs still looked fantastic. I would suggest this dress to anyone!

Rented this dress for a formal wedding. I had tons of compliments all night on the dress! The lace wasn't in perfect condition, but it wasn't noticeable to any one but myself. It's a very classic dress, yet the cutout on the back shows the perfect amount of skin! Once again, I am pleased with my experience and I already have another dress on the way! I would definitely rent this dress again!

Beautiful dress, got to wear for a friends wedding. Eventhough it fit perfect I went with 2nd rental because I loved the purple color. I'm 5'5, 138lbs and 34DD. This dress is perfect for hourglass figure. A corset, low back bra would be benificial to keep everything in place.

Overall a fabulous dress! Very comfortable and flattering. I received lots of compliments on the dress. I paired it with fuchsia high-heeled sandals by Micheal Kors to wear to a wedding. I wish I could have rented the shoes too as they were a pretty penny. The dress was true to size but it had stretched a bit from the previous uses but nothing significant. The only other draw back was the smell. It could have been more thoroughly cleaned, especially in the armpits because you could smell the previous wearer. Nothing too overpowering, I'm hoping I was the only one who noticed. I would suggest a deeper cleaning method; dry cleaning I feel like does not do a through job of cleaning garments.

Although the dress is absolutely beautiful, it's also very delicate as doesn't seem to wear or travel well. It arrived in rather poor condition; the lace was frayed and creased and someone had clearly stretched out the dress, damaging the clasps and making it difficult for them to remain closed throughout the evening.

I am a size 12 with curves (ahhhh yeah ladies!). After reading the reviews, I nervously ordered a size 10. The dress fit like a glove and hit my curves JUST right. If I could buy this dress, I would. I received compliments from women and men alike ALL night. My boyfriend nailed it on the head when he described it as classy and sophisticated with a touch of sexiness. This was the best dress I've ever worn!

This dress has some lovely boning in the bodice, and is very flattering for all body types - but it's such a dark navy blue it's hard to see it! I wasn't a huge fan of this dress - the lace aged me about 10 years. You can get away with not wearing a bra, but I need the support of one, so I didn't end up wearing it to my event.

I rented this dress gown for a wedding and loved it! I got so many compliments on how perfectly the dress fits hourglass body type. I would definitely recommend this dress .It looks so much better in person that online, the color is more of a bright navy blue which complimented my brown complexion well. Also , Renttherunway is awesome and has thought of everything! As evident in the little surprise packet I got which contained lip gloss and makeup remover.I will be a return customer.

Beautiful dress

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress was gorgeous and well made. I'm normally between an 8 and a 10 so I ordered those two sizes and ended up wearing the eight which was still a bit big for me in the shoulders. The bottom most hook and eye closure didn't want to stay but nothing that couldn't be fixed with fashion tape. I was worried that the lace would be uncomfortable but the dress was very comfortable to wear. I wore the magic cups adhesive bra underneath because of the open back, which worked pretty nicely. Overall the dress looked great on (I wish I owned it) and the RTR service was great.

I received many compliments on this dress!! It was beautiful and very form flattering. The only downside was that when I was dancing, the three small clasps in the back holding the lace together kept coming undone towards the end of the evening. Also, the zero was perfect size for me but if it had been too small, I wouldn't have been able to wear the size 2 because the lace in the neck was stretched out.

It fits true to size, but is also extremely form fitting and not very forgiving. Spanx was definitely a must for me. I didn't think a bra was necessary, but got a nu-bra anyways for extra padding.

This dress was gorgeous! Minus a few pulls of the lace on the arms and bottom hem, it was in perfect condition. I received so many compliments on the open back. I have larges hips and a small bust, and this dress worked out well. I did not have to wear a bra, as the dress was very fitting in the waist and bust area. I am very tall also and have the problem of finding a dress that doesnt show too much thigh. This fell right above my knees and was perfect. I wore bright teal heels, earrings and clutch to make the dress pop more for a summer wedding. I would rent this again in a heartbeat!

The lace and open back were a great combination. I've lost a good amount of weight and was worried about whether it would fit or not, but I did get into the 8 rather than the 10 and it fit PERFECTLY! I'm definitely an hourglass/pear shaped girl and I found this dress comfortable and very flattering.

I rented this for a springtime wedding in DC- the navy color was perfect for the event and the lace was beautiful. However, I fell right in between the two sizes I rented, and never felt 100% comfortable with either. (Small waist + fuller hips = either baggy midsection/perfect fit around hips OR perfect fit at waistline/not sure I can sit down the whole night around hips...) Nothing wrong with the dress, but definitely best suited for a straigher figure.

This is my second time renting from RTR, and won't be my last!! I rented this dress to wear to my cousins wedding. I was a little nervous at how it was going to fit, since the model in the picture is a twig, and I'm not. I ordered both the 14 and the 16, just to be on the safe side. They both fit, well, but I went with the 16, because it was a little longer, and bigger in the bust. The dress is surprisingly comfortable to wear, and is just stunning on. I got compliments all night long, and even after the wedding! My fiancee and I stopped in to the grocery store on the way home to grab a few things, and people were stopping me in the store to tell me how gorgeous the dress was! I highly recommend this dress!

Had to wear the larger size due to a hole in the 0, but still received lots of compliments. It was a little long for me since I'm short. Beautiful lace, great for a more formal or conservative event. You definitely need a stick-on bra since the back is open.

I had a great experience renting this dress. This was my first time using RenttheRunway and I was extremely satisfied with the experience. The dress was classy, yet sexy given it was fairly form fitting. It ran a little small. I'm 5'10' and weigh approximately 127 lbs. I normally wear a size 4, but am glad I got a size 6. I got a ton of compliments. I received a ton of compliments and would certainly use this service in the future!

My first RTR moment was unforgettable because I got so many compliments at the wedding!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size

The 4 fit me, but it was looser than the 2. The 2 was also in better condition (the lace wasn't as frayed as the 4, an the hem was sort of uneven), and I wanted a more form-fitted look. The 2 was still very comfortable. I was concerned about my bust (going back and forth between a 2 or a 6 for my back up size), and I am so happy I went with the 2. I wore this dress with patent leather nude pumps and bright pink lip stain--it was a classic look, and I would definitely rent again.
