Not recommended for petite figure.

Size worn: 38
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
After an issue with my order for a wedding weekend, RTR stylists sent me this dress along with a few other options. This dress is really unflattering and is made of a weird foam-like material. The dress was enormous and is NOT recommended for someone who is under 5'10''. I can see this being cute on a model, but not ordinary women. May be a good option for a costume or themed party, but definitely not a wedding.

This dress was perfect and I got compliments all night long!

Size worn: 44
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress was great! A little large but I fixed it with a few safety pins! It was super comfortable and I was in love with it! The flair off the waist was so cute and the pattern was really cool. I would size down because I wore a 44 which is a US size 6 but I definitely could have done a 4. The dress was great and I loved it! Not to mention I had an issue with another dress not fitting for this same event and RTR got me this dress over night! They were more than willing to help me out and get a new dress to me ASAP. Renting from them was a great experience!

Love this full skirt dress! Super fun and flirty for a cocktail party or wedding. I'm 5'8" and the skirt was mid-thigh to mini length, which was perfect. Runs large, especially if you are small chested, I would recommend sizing down. Would definitely wear again!

This dress was perfect for my company holiday party

Size worn: 40
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I absolutely loved wearing this dress. It had so much character to it, such as the lace detail in the front, the imprinted design in the neoprene material, and the flared bottom. I was a little nervous about the length, but it ended up being perfectly fine. I received many compliments on this dress from friend and even from strangers I walked passed. It is such a unique dress with unique material, but I loved it! I wore it with dark red stilettos to add a little color.

Very Cute Dress. Perfect for my Holiday Party.

Size worn: 38
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I usually fit either a size 0 or a size 2 depending on the style and the cut of the dress. So I rented the size 38 and size 40. The size 40 was a little loose in the bust area, but the size 38 was perfect. I loved the fullness of the skirt. I paired the dress with the black and gold Love Moschino clutch (also from RTR) and it made for the perfect outfit, although not shown in the picture the outfit was completed with black Mary Janes. I received several compliments on this dress. I really liked the simplicity of the dress. I thought it was beautiful and easy to wear. Two thumbs up :).

I wore what would be a 4, it actually ran a little big in the shoulders for me, but it was also quite comfortable. Classy, would look great on any shape.

Playful, unique LBD

Size worn: 40
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
Rented this for an office holiday party — it's SO cute in person! It's made of a cool embossed neoprene, and the shininess is actually quite understated. The fabric is very figure-flattering, as is the cut (at or a bit higher than natural waist, then a dramatic flare out). The skirt bubbles out a lot, which gives it a cutesy vibe that was fun... it's also pretty short, so tights made it winter-weather appropriate. I wish I owned this dress. It's awesome. Note that it runs very large — I wore a 2, and I'm a 4/6.

Loved this Dress. Received so many compliments!

My friend and I both rented for the event. I am on the left. The dress was super comfortable. They didn't have the second size available for the time of my event, so the dress that was delivered was a bit big. I had a size 40, i could have worn the next smaller size. But it did allowed for room for the wedding food! Also, lots of dancing! I received the most compliments of the material of the dress and the pattern once everyone saw it up close. I would def love to wear this again!

I am short so I didnt want to wear a long gown and chose to wear this dress instead to a black tie function. It was perfect. So many compliments from everyone! It does run big so I wore the smaller size of the 2. The fabric is different and thick. It almost felt like a wet suit material. Extremely comfortable and doesnt flow up or anything.

Wore it to my sisters engagement party and it was perfect! Was size 0, i'm typically a size 4, but fit like a glove. Dress came a day early, clean and ready to go. I have no cons with this dress, except that I had to give it back. It can suit you for many many occasions! Hope you love it as much as i did!!

Wore this to my sorority's senior banquet

Size worn: 42
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
Really cute dress. It photographed well but definitely had some problems. It ran very large on top, and I definitely could have worn a 40, if not a 38. The fabric was weird too, it was really puffy/foamy and I kind of felt like I was in a space suit. Other than that an adorable dress, especially considering the fact that It was the backup to my backup's backup dress (4th choice). Would probably order again, just in a smaller size!

Loved this dress.

Size worn: 38

My friends and I nicknamed this dress the "Goth Cupcake." It was a bit edgy with a cute, fun twist to it. I really love dresses that are tight on top & flow out, as I have sizable hips, and this fit the bill. Only flaw: the material is amazing but heavy, so I got quite sweaty when dancing. Also, be sure to size down on this one. I at first received a bigger size & the Rent the Runway Customer Service rep was fantastic and helped me snag a smaller size in time for my event. Thank you, Rent the Runway!!

Classic black dress with a unique twist!

Overall fit: Large

I read the reviews, so I sized down for this dress. The material was heavy, but I didn't overheat. I loved the texturing on the fabric! I wore it to a wedding that ha the ceremony in the afternoon and reception in the evening, and it transitioned nicely with nude heels. The lace on the top is really pretty! I'd definitely rent again.

I wish I could keep it! I rented this for a wedding and it fits great (size down!) I'm normally a size 10 in rtr and the size 8 fit perfect. It runs on the shorter side so for a petite girl, it was perfect. The bottom bells out pretty significantly but I loved the look. The dress arrived in near perfect condition and I'll be sad when it's time to go back. One note: the dress lining hem came down longer than the actual dress hem in one area so a safety pin was needed to pull it up.

I loved this dress, it was true to size for me in 38 and fit beautifully, no fit issue at all. Delightfully flared but the black color and tonal pattern still gave it an edge. The neoprene material was soft and spongy and the dress was well made and I felt looked better in person than on the website photos. I was very satisfied with this dress!

This dress was very forgiving, functional, flirty and classy.

Size worn: 44
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Good fit-- I wear a size 10 jeans currently and the size 44 (US 8) fit great. I got tons of compliments. I've recently gained a little weight but this dress made me feel comfortable-- I didn't feel like I had to suck it in all night, yet it still looked like I had a waist. Also, I didn't have any problems with the top being too roomy. Dress was in good condition. The fabric was pretty heavy but I liked it...perfect for a crisp, October evening wedding. The whole rental process was nerve-wracking since I received the dresses only a day before my event but everything turned out great! First RTR experience but I'm definitely a return customer!

The poofiest skirt ever

Size worn: 40

Very cute dress with the most lightweight, full short skirt I've ever seen. When I tried it on in the Vegas store I felt like I was getting ready to go to Homecoming. It was just not age appropriate for me and the full skirt made my skinny legs look even skinnier. Very well made dress.

This dress is very cute in person, but I think the size chart is a little off. I'm almost always an 8, sometimes a 10 and the 46 which is supposed to be an 8 was much too big. I had to much room in the waist and gapping under my arms. That said, I loved the style and would consider renting again in a size (or two) smaller.

The perfect dress!

This dress was a back-up to a back-up, and I was really just looking for "average" by that point. The stylists were SO helpful during the whole ordeal and got me two different dresses in just under 24 hours so I had plenty of time before the party. This dress had promise, but when I put it on, it was absolutely stunning! I probably could have gone a size down, but to be honest was excited about having lots of room for eating and drinking. The dress stayed bouncy and flirty and everyone loved it. I will rent this one again!

This dress was so cute and I got a ton of compliments all night!

Size worn: 44
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
Definitely runs big, would opt for the smaller size as your 2nd choice. Usually I wear a size 6, i ended up wearing the 44 and could have even gone smaller. Fabric is really stretchy- but it's thick fabric so even though it's stretchy it doesn't cling weird or anything like that. I am only 5" 2' and usually find the dressed on here to be WAYYYY to Long esp compared to the picture but this one fit well, it wasnt super short but also didn't hit the knees. I also loved the cut, it hug tight to my bust/waist but then poof'd out allowing me to eat and drink as much as I want without the need for any spanx! Would definitely rent this one again!

It fits a little large, both the size I typically wear, as well as one size smaller fit just fine. I've gained a some weight (especially in my hips and thighs) and this dress was perfect for covering up those areas. It definitely complimented me shape. I wear a 34D, and I filled the top out nicely. However, I would not recommend it for much smaller (unless you have a great push-up).

Overall I liked the dress, not my favorite rental but still a good one! It runs a bit large, I used a belt to make it more fitted. The length keeps it classy while the fit/ style of the dress keep it fun!
