Great print and form-fitting sheath
This was a great dress for dinner with friends in Vegas. It seemed like it was cut for those with more curves and made it fit unevenly in the hip area for me. Lots of compliments!

Unfortunately couldn't wear too tight
I am usually a size 0 and it was very snug- too snug to the point of couldn't breath Also the fabric was a little heavy and uncomfortable I liked the color and style but wish it would have worked out If I was to rent again I would order the 2 and maybe for a bit so hot day

Unimpressed
Rented this for work. I was traveling abroad and literally was unable to zip this up myself. Had to wear a blazer all day. Slip was odd and thick fabric bunched up. Unimpressed.

Dress fit well. True to size. Stretchy fabric allows for a tighter fit. Wore this dress to my graduation. Super comfortable dress.

Comfortable and gorgeous colors!
This was my first time doing RTR and I was a bit nervous because I am petite with a larger chest (34DD). This dress was SO comfortable with stretchy material that allowed me to comfortably dance all night. The fabric is a bit thicker, but I liked that because it didn't feel like it was hugging or showing every curve.. it felt like it was actually holding me in and was just super comfy. Great colors and tons of compliments throughout the night!

Pretty colors; awkward fit
Me: pearshaped 5'4" & average torso. Lines at hips were unflattering for me so i decided not to wear it to the bridal shower. Colors are pretty, not as vibrant (neon-esque) as I hoped. It would be a beautiful dress on someone taller than me and/or longer torso/narrower hips

Fun, not like anything I would typically purchase. Excellent fabric
The dress fits snug for sure. The fabric is so thick and well made that it does not look as tight as it feels. narrower hips and butt would be even less tight. Fit great in upper body and arms, length great. The piping is a plum sort of chocolate color just for reference. Really like it, glad I rented. I liked it and had fun wearing it.

AMAZING sheath dress sucks everything in!!
I want this dress. I wore this to a bridal luncheon and got dozens of compliments. Comfortable but quite snug. I wouldn't recommend for dancing or lots of movement because the tight fit restricts. It's definitely been worn several times, but not noticeable when on. Loved and my hubby did too! I'm a 32E and I could wear a normal bra! Score!!

Gorgeous colors!!
I loved this dress. It's impossible to capture the colors in photos. It is SO vibrant and just beautiful. It's definitely tight. The fabric is very thick and doesn't have much give. It rides up a little over the hips and I was tugging at it throughout the night, but other than that I had no complaints. I'm usually a pretty standard 10, but after reading the reviews decided to get the backup 12, and am very glad I did. The 10 fit okay, but it was reallyyy uncomfortably tight across my chest, so I went with the 12 for more breathing and moving room. I got so many compliments and people wondering where it was from. I meant to take a specific photo to post here for a better view of the fit, but forgot, so this overly posed one will have to do! Definitely recommend!

Beautiful dress but runs very small
This dress is gorgeous. The colors are vibrant and definitely make a statement. The dress is extremely tight, however. I have a large chest and the size 2 would not even go over my shoulders. Dress has no give but once on its on, beautiful!

The colors are unique and exciting. The lines and interesting and very flattering. It fits tightly, so not great for lots of moving around, but managed it dance in it and feel great.

Wore it for a professional seated dinner/banquet at which my date was the honoree.
As others have noted, it fits like wearing a Spanx dress. I wore the 4, but could have worn the 6, but it wasn't available at the time I chose this as my backup dress. Very comfortable due to the heavy fabric; it didn't ride up on me; might have needed help in the restroom but got through the evening without finding out. Great style, always wonder why when you go shopping you don't find basic, classic, cover-all- the-bases looks like this one.

Tight but great, quality looking dress
I wore this for a work seminar where I was presenting. It was knee length, I'm 5'9. It was a little snug, I normally wear a 4 and the 6 was tight. Get your backup size one or two bigger. The material was quality, and several people commented on the dress. It was flattering because of the thickness of the fabric. Wore on a 100 degree day, was sweating for sure.

Nice fitting dress
I wore this dress to dinner and elected to size up to be more comfortable. The dress is very well made and although the fabric is stretchy it stays in place very well. I would have given this five stars but the zipper sticks and it is a bit hard to zip up or down. Overall, I would recommend this dress to others.

Pretty colors but tight and stiff
This dress looks more vibrant online than it did in person, though the colors are still beautiful. I found it ran small; I'm almost always a 2, sometimes a 4, and definitely needed a 6 in this one. I was planning to wear it to an indoor/outdoor rehearsal dinner but the fabric was quite thick and stiff and I decided it would be too hot.

Cute day-to-night dress
This is definitely a stretchy, form fitting dress but conservative enough to be worn to work. It's a good day-to-night dress as I had to attend an awards dinner right after work. The ribbons are navy blue, not black as it appears on the model. I had a hard time zipping it up near the ribbons. It definitely sucks you in! I got a 4 and 2 (as my backup) and wore the size 4 which felt fine but I think I probably would've been more comfortable in a 6 due to the thickness of the fabric. If you have hips this dress definitely rides up. I had to keep pulling it down.

So flattering! I felt beautiful! Be the best dressed!
Love this dress. I was skeptical but it's so much prettier in person. Color is so vibrant. The material is so thick and heavy that it's extremely flattering on my problem tummy. The cut, everything is awesome about it. Would definitely rent again. I was the best dressed at myhigh school reunion cocktail party & night out

Loved the fit, style and it was perfect for an indoor work event.
The structured lines are actually a deep navy blue and not black so I changed up the shoes I was planning to wear and opted for a tan closed toe heel for a Nixon Library work event. I love the length and fit because it was flattering when sitting up on stage moderating and standing meeting people and posing for pictures. I typically wouldn't opt for this capped sleeve but really liked it on this dress. I went with the size 4 (four) instead of the backup size 6 (six) because the 6 seemed to have more fabric in/around the sleeves and the lower back. The material of the 4 seemed like it smoothed out my lines almost with a spanx like effect.

Love rent the runway
This dress was awesome because it's such a thick fabric that it helps to suck in the tummy area. When walking, it really hikes up a lot so unfortunately I was pulling the dress down quite a bit.

Fantastic dress.
Thick, stretchy material provided a slimming effect, obviating the need for Spanx, etc. The dress was a bit short-waisted for my 5'10" frame, but that is typical for me and not a fault of the dress. The colors were not as vibrant as I expected, but the dress was beautiful nonetheless. My only complaint was that the lining did tend to ride up a bit. Not a dealbreaker, but a small annoyance. I received many compliments on the dress and would definitely recommend it!

Great fit
I rented this for a work event. The fit was perfect. The material on this dress is amazing. It really holds it all in. I ended up not wearing it only because my function was cancelled. I would rent this again with no reservations.

Very flattering
It's tight but has some stretch; I found that it tended to ride up and had to be re-adjusted all day long. Also the zipper is uncomfortable if you have a bony spine.

Did not fit me well.
I ordered this dress as part of my Unlimited subscription, and it didn't fit well on me at all. It was too baggy, and the color definitely wasn't as vibrant as it is shown on the model.

This dress ig great! I wore it to a bridal shower on a cold January day and it was perfect!
This dress fit true to size. It is nice and snug so no need to wear spanx! Loved the length, color and pattern of this dress. Rent the runway is the best thing that's happened to the fashion world!!

Great choice for a summer wedding
Fits true to size, the material is very flattering and color/design hides any problem areas. Great colors, brings out your tan. Pro-can wear a regular bra, comfortable, can be dressed up or down. No cons from me, definitely recommend!

Fun material and colors
The dress is very snug, but thankfully, the scuba material is thick and hides flaws. The black piping is not as stretchy as the rest of the dress though so I would suggest sizing up to be comfortable.

Very tight.
Either this was made to be a body con dress or it runs very small. Or maybe it's just not meant for anything other than going out. Since it had a longer length, I rented my normal size for work. My fiancé said I could get away with it but I would have felt paranoid all day. It was very tight in the stomach and butt. I personally don't like skirts for work that clearly cling and hug the butt and this one without a doubt is a form fitting curve hugger. Either go up a size or only rent it for occasions where you're okay with everyone checking out your booty :-)

Very tight fit but beautiful print!
I wasn't able to wear the dress as it had a hole in the hip area. The colors on the dress were much more vibrant in person and the print was beautiful. I do have fuller hips and the 6 was very snug, if I had needed to walk much I would have been a tad uncomfortable. Fabric has some stretch. I may rent again for another event in the future.

Love the pattern & bright colors!
I ordered this dress in sizes 2 & 4. The 2 was definitely snug, so I thought the 4 would be the better fit. When I tried on the 4, however, it felt even SMALLER! When I took a better look, I could tell that it had been 'repaired' right down the seam making the skirt even tighter than the size 2. Since I was pressed for time, I squeezed into the size 2 and received many complements, but because the material is very heavy and I was at an outdoor event in July - I would have really preferred the larger size for comfort.

Received lots of compliments! Super happy!
Dress is a very thick and stretchy material. It sucks you in better than spanx! I got a 4 and they did not have a size 6 in stock so I winged it and luckily it fit, however, for a looser fit I'm guessing a 6 probably would have worked as well. As a girl with curves, it was tighter in the hips, but still looked good due to the quality of the material!

The lining is a bit snug and rides up and pulls the slit up, but I didn't need my spanks with this. It held everything in place and I LOVED IT.

Go for it!
Loved this rental. I rented it because people said that it runs large and I just had a baby. I'm usually a 10 but, am a 12 these days to accommodate for my "new body". Fit like a glove with the perfect amount of stretch. The colors aren't as bright as the picture which is good given the intensity of the pattern.
