This dress was my 3rd choice as my first dress became unavailable the day before it was supposed to arrive. Also I saw a ton of RTR gowns at the Golden Globes which made me nervous as another woman had on my second choice gown. It would be great if the site had some sort of feature that when there are big events like the golden globes it wont allow to people to rent the same dress.

I wore this dress to the Golden Globes and in the end was pretty happy although I definitely should have started a serious diet a few weeks before as the dress is super form fitting. The top was fine but it was quite tight around my hips and waist even with the spanx. This dress also has a few strange seams in it around the hips which dont flatter curvy bottoms. It is a super sexy gown and I loved the color, definitely felt like a star!

This dress is definitely worth hitting the gym for because it is gorgeous. It does expose the back so if you are conscious about back fat beware. The dress does also slightly hug the hips.

The cutouts really make the dress!

I tried this dress on at the Rent The Runway Manhattan showroom. I would definitely wear this for my sorority's formal. The dress hit just above the floor with 3 in heels on. And the back is my favorite part of the dress! The dress is clingy and you can't really wear a bra because of the cutouts, so make sure you have the right undergarments when renting. A great choice if you want to wear something fun and sexy to a formal affair.

beyond beautiful dress - only worn for a few hours but wouldve loved to keep it!

Size worn: 38L

I rented this for a photoshoot, and absolutely fell in love with it. The photo doesn't show this, but the straps are lined with a zipper. The back zips up as far as you want it to, or as deep as you want it to - it's continuous along the straps (this is difficult to explain). The cut-outs are beautiful and cover-up any standard strapless bra, though the dress is tight enough to go without. The rouching makes for a super slimming fit. The color is an amazing, cherry red.

This is a very sexy dress. It accentuates everything so if you have a big meal, it'll show :) It especially accentuates the booty and breasts. The slits in the side make it ultra sexy, but the entire style says elegance.

Wearing Narciso Rodriguez to my prom!

Size worn: 38R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
This dress was so comfortable and stretchy. I got a 38R and 40R and they were so flexible I really could have worn either one. If you have a bigger bust, go with the size up so that the cutout doesn't show the bottom of your bra. Also, the dress isn't quite as bright as it is in the picture. Other than that, I was really pleased to wear this dress to my senior prom!

Fits true to size. I'm curvy and it accentuated my curves nicely. Definitely a show stopper. I have a big chest, but I felt secure even with a strapless bra. Sexy but classy too. I tried on a different dress and it just hung on me, this dress moves with you and is comfortable. Would wear again!

Perfect fit and perfect for the occasion!

I was so worried that the dress would be too long since I am barely 5'1. But, it was actually perfect. I wore 4-5" heels but probably could have gotten away with shorter heels as well. The dress is VERY sexy and I received comments from men and women alike. I will definitely use RTR for my next formal event.

Body Fit was perfect, Jessica Rabbit feel.

Size worn: 38R
Overall fit: Small

Perfect for those with a small waist line. Dress runs small, which is perfect for petite frames. But fabric is stretchy to fit each curve of your body. Strapless bra worked perfect. Back was gorgeous. I'd rent this one again!

Great fit and fabric. I got many compliments from strangers!

Size worn: 42R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I typically wear a 4-6 and went for the 6 because of the length and to avoid spilling out the sides. The fabric is really nice--not too clingy or thin. I wore spanx to help me feel more confident but they really weren't necessary. I wore 5" heels and the length was fine, the skirt moves very nicely. Because I went for the 6, I had to wear a strapless bra to fill out the top. In the 4, a bra wouldn't have really been necessary. Awesome dress!

The fit was right on with my body type. I am 5'4'' and weight 110 lb with a very small chest. Will a little help from victoria secret I was able to fill that area. The rest of the dress hugged my in all the right places, especially by accentuating my waist. My boyfriend fell in love with me again in this dress lol I strongly recommend it!

This dress fits like a glove without the squeeze. Unfortunately I didnt wear it because the 38R was too short and the 40R was dirty. I might order again in the future but would def order the long. I'm normally a size 4.

I wore this dress to a prom and it was absolutely perfect!

Size worn: 44R
Overall fit: True to Size

The dress was a little long for me, even on 5 inch heels, but it fit perfectly otherwise. It wasn't hard to dance in and I received so many compliments! I wore a strapless bra and it would peep out of the bottom every once in a while but it wasn't really a big issue. I just felt gorgeous overall. Thank you RTR!

Gorgeous and COMFORTABLE

Size worn: 44L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I love this dress. Totally worth the price. I wore it to a smaller Mardi Gras ball and it was certainly a hit. I ordered the 44L & 40L (the 42L was unavailable). The 40L was doable, but left NOTHING to the imagination. Even in the 44L I seriously considered going commando. Had the 42L been available, I probably could have gone bra-less, but in the 44L I was a little less secure. I'd recommend fashion tape though. The bottom of my bra kept peeking out from the side cut-outs. Bottom line is, this is a dress I would seriously consider owning. It's flattering to just about every figure & with the smooth jersey fabric (which looks more formal than you'd imagine), you'll consider falling asleep in it after your stellar night out!

I wore this to a charity fundraiser. The dress was definitely a head turner. My husband's eye's bugged out of his head when he saw me. The fit was great, hugged curves in all the right places. Great dress!

Didn't wear it, too revealing

This dress was too long, the material was very heavy, and the cut outs in the back were too much for a black-tie affair.

I felt fabulous! So comfortable and flattering, much better color in person than in the photo!

Imagine being in your nightgown....so comfortable! The back made this dress so unique. The side cut outs in the photo made me a little worried until I tried it on. You can shift up or down to show less or more skin. I was sent a two in this dress because it was all they had left in stock. I would say this is a very forgiving dress 2-6 might be able to wear it. It actually was my third pick and I was so glad I went for it. I got many many complements at the Christmas party!

This dress probably would've been great if my size was available. I had to try a size down and size up so neither fit how I needed it to. This dress is VERY form fitting and shows every curve. However it is comfortable and you're able to wear a bra with the dress. The material shows a lot but it feels thick.
