The dress truly made the night unforgettable! It made me feel elegant, sophisticated, and sexy!
Size worn: 38L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress fit extremely well! This was my first Rent the Runway experience, and I was very pleased with the quality of the dress, how no one at the event had anything like it, and all the compliments I received. This dress is made of material that "moves" with your body and allows for some "stretch" room. I would absolutely recommend this dress to anyone!

Wore this to a formal wedding it was stunning!
Size worn: 42L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Dress was stunning! I wish I would have got the 40L to try as well as it fit very well in the top and length but a tad baggy in the hip area (but I don't have hips) Top fit well I was able to wear a low cut back bustier bra and 3 inch heels with no problem. Overall phenomenal dress. Wish I could keep this one!

My dress fit well everywhere but my bust. I had to add some pads and it was a bit baggy in the waist. Overall I liked it I just wish I had order a smaller size.

beautiful, elegant, appropriate for professional formal event but still sexy!
Size worn: 46R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I am a size 8 and the size 8 fit me pretty well. I am shorter with curves and felt this dress was forgiving yet flattering. You cannot wear a bra (bc of back) but I wore spanks to smooth out my curves a bit. I'm 5'2 but wore ~5 inch nude heels and length was perfect. Recommend just red lips bc the dress alone is statement enough (not really needing a lot of accessorizing)! Lots of compliments all nite! First rental experience, will def do again!

Beautiful dress. Wonderful silhouette.
Size worn: 38R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I ordered this dress as a second dress (outfit change) for my wedding. I was apprehensive about fit but felt relatively confident based on the other reviews that it "should" work on me as well. I had a backup second dress ready in case this one didn't fit. When I received it on Thursday before my wedding and tried it on, I was relieved to find that it wasn't too small, especially because the size up wasn't available as a backup. I ordered the smallest size available (38R) and found it to fit almost perfectly. The waist/hip area could've been slightly more fitted (personal preference). The dress was slightly long even though I'm 5'5" and was wearing 3-4 inch heels. I fixed that problem with some double-sided tape. The cutouts on the arms and back are beautiful details. This dress made me look long and lean. I felt beautiful, sexy, glamorous and elegant all at the same time. Additionally, the dress was super comfortable. The zipper in the back did slip a bit (as other reviewers mentioned) but luckily my girlfriends kept an eye on it for me, so I wasn't too concerned. You can't wear a regular bra (or strapless with this) and so a nu-bra or pasties are the way to go. You can't go wrong with this dress. This dress makes you feel instantly amazing. If I didn't care about being photographed again in the same dress, I would absolutely rent this dress again, in a heartbeat.

"Lady in red"
Size worn: 42L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I felt like a total bombshell in this slinky red dress. The size was perfect for my curves, and the shape just made me look like Jessica rabbit. The material was thinner than I expected, but it made it easier to dance in at my sorority sister's wedding. Walking up stairs was a bit of a struggle though...

AMAZING DRESS!
Size worn: 40R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Rented this for a formal event and it was the super-special dress I had hoped it would be. Fit like a GLOVE! I got compliments all night long. My only concern was that there is no eye hook at the top of the zipper so it would occasionally start to come down. I had someone put a safety pin there and it worked great.

Gorgeous color, amazing dress.
Size worn: 38R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress fit true to size, but consider going up a size if you have bigger bust. I'm 5'4" and wore 5" heels, and the hem just grazed the ground. The color is amazing- expect a lot of compliments. I wore it to prom, but its versatile enough for any formal event.

The beautiful Red color made me stand out in a room full of Black.
Size worn: 38R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The dress is beautiful and fit me pretty well. It was tight around my ribs, but a little big in the bust and the butt/hips area. I rented both the 38 R&L and ended up wearing the R. I am 5'6" and wore 5in heels and the length was perfect. The fabric wasn't as think as I was expecting, though not a bad thing. My one problem with this dress (and why I gave 4 out of 5 stars) was the zipper in the back. The zipper is exposed and there isn't a hook to stop the zipper from falling down. I had to have friends help me keep it up all night.

Overall fit: True to Size

This dress is stunning. The fit was perfect - I am a size 6, 141 pounds, 5,6" and the longer length with 4inch heels worked great. The material is a little stretch so the dress is super comfortable. I wore a spanx that goes from under bra to thigh and it could not be seen underneath. I got a lot of compliments and it was really hard to put the dress back in the UPS bag today. Love this dress.

The fit couldn't have been better. The fabric does wrinkle easily, so take a steam iron if you're traveling. I'd rent again in a heartbeat.

Showstopper
Size worn: 38L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this for a black tie wedding and it was perfect. The fabric is so light (you will need to iron or steam after delivery). The only thing is, the nature of the cut of the dress makes moving your arms up, and your legs apart a bit constricted. Overall, for a 38L, everything was true to size and fit like a glove. Amazing dress, amazing color!

Wearing this dress by Narciso Rodriguez, I don't think I've ever felt more beautiful in my life.
Size worn: 40L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is incredibly well designed. As a tall woman, it is often difficult for me to find a dress that fits well. This one did! So many people at the prom I wore it for said I was the stunner of the evening; I was so thankful to find this dress. The cutouts and neckline are well-placed, and the color is vibrant. It is just as it looks in the picture. I would definitely recommend it, especially for a very formal occasion where you want to stand out from the other girls.

AMAZING DRESS!!!! This dress is a SHOW STOPPER!! I ordered the 40L & 42R originally because the 40R wasn't available. The 40L was a little too big. This dress is supposed to be fitted so I had RTR send me the 38L which fit perfectly! Even the length! I am convinced that I had the 38R and not the 38L because the length was perfect for me with 3 1/2 in heels and I'm only 5' 3.

I was scared when I saw the reviews on how the size ran very small but was pleasantly surprised when the dress fit perfectly. Minus the fact i could only wear small heels because the dress was shorter than I imagined. I would recommend this dress to anyone it fits like a glove and is a true stunner. I received mass amounts of compliments and also the dress was very easy to move and to dance in. Very breathable. I would even rent this dress again! I had people trying to buy it off of me..

My event was a formal fundraiser for a Children's Dental Clinic that I volunteer for. I got raving reviews all night and would highly recommend this dress to anyone looking to feel AMAZING!

Wore this dress for a black tie event! Several people told me it was their favorite dress of the evening!! The only thing is that it runs a short. I am 5'7 and ordered the regular. It was much too short. I would definitely recommend the long. But, overall it was a beautiful dress!! Very well made. Not to mention Jennifer Anniston wore the same dress on the cover of vogue before!! I felt like a star!!

Absolutely amazing dress
Size worn: 42R

I wore this gown to a black tie charity event themed The Golden Age of Hollywood. I wear designer clothes and knew that I wear a size 6 or a 42. I am 5'4" and am a 34C-28-37 and this dress fit me like a glove and the length was perfect with a pair of 4" heels. I'm athletic built and have little fat so I was able to wear it without Spanx. I don't think I would have been able to get the back buckled if I were any bigger on top or it would be spilling over. I continuously received comments and everyone wanted to know the designer. The material is very comfortable and I was even comfortable through dinner and all the speeches and entertainment. When we went to mingle I had men coming up to me and asking my husband if they could take my picture. Some even posed with me. I definitely recommend this dress if you want to be noticed.

Serious showstopper
Size worn: 40R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This is probably the most insane dress on the entire site, it is drop dead gorgeous. I think every single person I saw complimented the dress, it's a stunner. I have an asian body so the 38 was better on my narrow hips but the torso was SO ungodly tight and the satiny fabric was so thin it showed everything and even I (as a 107lb size zero) had to wear spanx to stay smooth. In the end, I decided to go up a size and wore the 40 which was a little too big on my hips but perfect on my torso and was way more comfortable (still had to wear spanx though). When you put it on, undo the zipper but keep the hook-and-eye clasps hooked together on the back and just pull the top part on in one piece (rather than trying to hook it after its on). Also, i WAS able to wear a regular strapless bra, i just pushed it down low in the back.
