Date night!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for a cocktail party and ended up not going... so I took it out on a date with my husband. It was adorable. I had ordered both an 8 and a 10 because I am a 36DD+. Well I could have worn the 8 but it was too small in the bust. I wore the 10 and the bust fit fine. There was a slight flare in the hips but there was also the same flare in the 8. So if you have a large chest, go a size bigger to be safe. If you have a small bust, you could even go a size down I bet.

Great dress. Go a size up.

I would strongly recommend going up a size for your backup. Especially if you have full breasts at all. I loved the dress, but there is no way I could have worn the 6, which is the size I wear in almost every other brand. Other than that, it was really flattering and I received compliments all night.

Loved this dress! I wore it out to dinner for my birthday and just loved everything about it! It was flirty and fun and the bf gave me so many compliments. I just wish I had gotten the dress in a 6 since it was a little loose up top and I kept having to adjust it, but overall i would definitely wear it again.

This dress was fun and memorable. I felt great wearing it!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I am petite (5'2", 110 lbs) and rented the 2 and the 4. The 2 was perfect. There's a genius little strap at the back inside this dress, sort of like a bra strap, that holds this strapless style in place. The dress also has a bit of a gel band around the front of the neckline to also keep it in place. It was flattering, comfortable, and I would recommend it to anyone!

I actually ended up wearing something else because I couldn't figure out what to do with the belt. In the picture it looks good and cinched appropriately, but there are 2 ends to the belt that you have to wrap around and then tie in the back, and I could never get it to look right. The 0 fit me fine, though, and I'm typically a 0 or 2.

This dress was fun for a night out in Vegas. I usually order a size 6 and an 8, but since I order this as my "second style" I got it in the 8, which is the size I choose most often, but it was a little big. I got through the night and had many complements, but it would have fit me better in a 6 or if I had a little more in the bust.

Really liked this dress. Fit very comfortably and didn't seem to want to fall down like most strapless dresses. The only thing I remember were marks on my body when I took it off. Not sure if they were from my bra or the boning on the dress. Either way, I'd rent it again!

The color and fabric of this dress was just fantastic. It was super comfortable and I was able to dress it up quite nicely to go to my fiance's company Christmas party. I got tons of compliments. The top of the dress has rubber edging to keep it in place. I never had to worry about it slipping. The rouching would flatter any bust size. No cons that I can think of. I would definitely rent it again.

I love rent the runway more than life itself... this dress was meh, okay.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
It's really cute but the cut is a little awkward and had to keep grabbing at the top of it to keep it up. The underwire poked too and by the end of the night the metal part was stabbing a bit. That said, the dress is really pretty and I did get complements. I am a diehard fan of rent the runway! You have made my work/awards season possible.

Wore this for my cousin's wedding. It was flowy and fun. I did have to hitch up the top a few times (boob tape would not have helped) and I noticed that the dress had a place for straps in top... wonder what happened to them? Overall, cute dress and really worked for an outdoor wedding and barn reception. I wore the multi-strand pearls with it and they were a perfect complement!

Pretty flirty dress, perfect for date night.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size

I'm busty so I had to keep pulling the top up even though they have an elastic strap and boning in the top. Also part of the boning kept poking me where it had come through the lining. Other than that it was super cute and the fabric was flowy and pretty. It actually hit at a good length and I'm pretty short.

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size

I wore this to my bridal shower. I got the 0 and the 2, but once I put on the 0 I never even tried the 2. It was a little bit snug on top but I liked that because I had no worries it was going to slide down at all. I was still able to move and breathe and eat just fine. The sash is very very long and it took me a couple of tries to find a pretty way to tie it, but once I did I loved the whole look! It was a perfect day dress for my tea-party bridal shower. I would rent it again for another daytime event.

Cute and girly - perfect for Valentine's Day date

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
The best part of this dress is the extra elastic strap in the back inside that acts like a bra strap, helping to keep the dress in place. You know no matter how perfect the fit you'll always tug a little at a strapless, but this extra gem really helped minimize this. The dress is a great fabric and the rouching in the waist really accentuated my figure. I don't normally pick girly things like this, but it's fun to experiment sometimes when you're just renting!

I loved this dress. The hubby loved it too. He wanted me to buy it. I got the 4 and the 6 just in case. I wore the 4. It looks super cute on. The picture doesn't do it justice. I was worried I would need that sticky tape to hold the dress up or have to wear those stick on bra thingies, but I didn't. It had an elastic strap inside the dress that kept it held in place. All strapless dresses should have that.

Cute and versatile dress!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this for two events on the same day. The first event was a 2pm ballet performance; the second event was a 6:30pm wedding. I paired the dress with a casual jean jacket for the mid-day ballet performance and a black shrug for the evening wedding. For both events, I wore black, patent leather peep-toe shoes with a low heel (2" because I would be in them about 10 hours). ABOUT THE DRESS: The bodice was a bit tight on my 36D bust (but not unbearable), and at times it showed too much cleavage for my taste. I'm not a big fan of showing all my cleavage, so it may be just right for those who are more comfortable with displaying cleavage. The sash/belt was a lot longer than what I realized. It wrapped twice around my waist. This isn't a pro or a con; it was just a surprising observation. The dress was comfortable, cute, and very appropriate for both events. I would definitely rent it again.

Wore this for a rehearsal dinner for wedding I was in. Fit pretty true to size. It was a little longer than I usually like, but still looked cute! The bust was a bit loose, and I am a 30D, so take that into consideration. There were a few snags in the fabric, but not that anyone else could tell besides me :) I would rent this dress again... (but don't have to because there are so many other fun options to try on RTR!!)

I did not end up wearing this dress, it was my backup. Overall I really liked it and would order it again but in a smaller size. The waist belt helped to tie it together and keep it tight but I felt like if that bow came undone the whole dress might fall down.

It was cute but too small in the bust.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size

The 4 fit me perfectly - except in the bust. I couldn't contain my DD. This dress is not for those on the busty side. The size 6 was loose enough that it wouldn't stay on me. But the bust line fit better (but not great). My teen daughter tried to help tie the dress in another way so it would stay more secure. But it just wasn't working out. There were buttons inside and we both could see that if straps came with it that we could button to them it would be perfect. Oh well.

Such a fun and flattering dress!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I've actually rented this dress a few months ago but didn't get any pictures! So I rented it again for a Swing dancing wedding where it fit in perfectly. It has an empire waist so it is very flattering and loose around the stomach/hips without being too bulky. This one has been worn quite a bit and I could see wear and tear, but other people aren't looking at it so closely, so it's not a dealbreaker. When I rented it this time I still requested the free second size (8) but a week before the event RTR emailed me to let me know the 8 was damaged beyond repair and they could only send the 6. Since I'd worn the 6 a few months ago I didn't anticipate a problem (AND they gave me a free second rental which I used for the rehearsal dinner. Thanks RTR!!)

Perfect balance of casual and formal for a beach wedding

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
First, I have no idea why, but this dress read as navy blue and pink to me on the website, so I was a little surprised that it was actually black and pink. Either way, the style was perfect for a beach wedding. Unfortunately I wish it had fit a little better--the band around the chest was great, but I couldn't figure out how to adjust it. The 0 was a little too tight around the ribs and the 2 was a little too loose around the chest, so I went with the 2 and had a hard time dancing in it, worrying it was going to fall down. But the style made my waist look super tiny, so, tradeoffs :)
