Great dress! Rented it for my birthday party and had a lot of fun in it!
I was between sizes, the six was snug and the eight was a little big, so I ultimately went with the bigger size for more comfort. I recommend!

Borderline Hideous
if you like thin silk clinging to your thighs, and beads that scream "RESIN RESIN RESIN". you will love this! I was traveling, and DID NOT REMEMBER to pack my ORIGINAL dress. I was forced to wear THIS "backup" rental dress with a gold black/gold striped thai silk wrap (THAT I DID REMEMBER TO PACK!) and the brightest red Chanel gloss possible. ANYTHING TO TAKE AWAY FROM THE BEADS.

The dress is cute but it wasn't flattering on me at all. I ended up wearing a different dress
I just may have ordered the wrong size but this dress made me look like a sack of potatoes. I think if it was a little bigger it might have hung better.

It was way too small. I usually wear a 10 or 12 and I put the size 12 on and I looked like a stuffed sausage. It's a beautiful dress if you don't have any meat on your bones.

I didn't even pick it originally. And it was AWESOME.
Picture the scene. 18 weeks pregnant, middle of meetings at work on a Thursday, and the email says that both of the dresses I rented for a wedding on Saturday night are unavailable due to return delays, would I like to pick something else? AAAAH. And I'm on an old-school blackberry, so no browsing for me. I left it in her hands, and Lauren @ RTR came through HUGE and sent this dress plus three other options. This one was GORGEOUS and made it over the bump no problem. I felt beautiful as I sipped my Shirley Temples :). I think I fielded about 10 admiring questions about the dress from women at the wedding.

Process was flawless. This company has it together! Will definitely be renting again.
This was my first time renting a dress. This isn't the style I would normally select for myself, but I have been out of the gym for a while and feeling a little over my normal weight, so I wanted to go with something that looked like it could disguise my extra pounds in the mid section. This dress did a pretty good job of that. It's very flowy, and was very comfortable. It's not my normal style, so just branching out I was little nervous about it. But I got a lot of compliments on it. Overall a success.

Stunning dress.
This dress runs true to size, and has a slip underneath so all you need is a good wireless bra. The applique on the neckline is very pretty, however, don't wear silver jewlery as the gold on the applique shows more than the silver. I am exactly 5'0 tall and this dress hit about an inch or so above my knee. Many compliments and I felt very pretty in the dress. Perfect dress for a wedding, cocktail party, and a formal event. RTR sent dress perfectly laundered in a garment bag, and it arrived exactly when they said it would arrive.

Perfect for a night out on the town!
On me, personally, the dress doesn't hang like it does on the model in the picture. It definitely hugged all my curves, but in all the right places. It wasn't tight, but if you're a curvy girl, it will be a sexy dress for you. I got both a size 10 and 12. They both fit, though the 12 gave a little extra room in the midsection and made it look a little bit baggy. The size 10 fit perfectly, however, it was a bit shorter than the 12 and it was tighter around my bum than the 12. I decided to go with the size 12, though it was looser, but I think it looked better overall. I received a lot of compliments on this dress. It's fun, flirty and perfect for a night out, party or birthday. Really liked this dress and will probably rent it again!

Really striking dress - the one shoulder effect adds a lot of drama.
Wore this to a wedding in Vail. I usually wear a size 2 or 4 (depending on the designer), but I was 14 weeks pregnant when I ordered this dress. I needed something that would hide a small bump but would still look classy. This dress definitely did the job. I agree with the other reviews that it fits snugly at the hips. Did not have any problems with the bust area - no slippage even when I was dancing around. Definitely recommend this dress!

I did not wear the dress
The fit on this is a little snug. I rented two dresses, because I wasn't sure which style would look best. Although I like the style of this dress, it was very snug in the bust and very short. I would up wearing the Badgely Mishka instead.

I wore this to a Sweet 16 that I attended with my husband and our 2 sons.
The dress is a bit snug in the hips but my butt tends to be on the rounder size. I wore Spanx and that seemed to solve the problem. The decorative feature along the top of the dress does not look, at all, like it does in the picture. The pattern is set differently and also the color. The beading is 80% gold in color. I would definitely use RTR again!!! I just wasn't crazy about the gold coloring in the beading. :(

Eve of the Eve Black Tie Ball
I love how this dress fit, the material was so classy and the cut was modern and fun, but the blinged out details on the front made the whole dress. I got tons of compliments! This was my 1st RTR dress and certainly not my last. I wore nude patent leather pumps and paired it with the Chamak Silver Glitz Bangle Set, so awesome together!

Very unusual shape
This dress did not work for me. It was essentially shapeless and the size I usually wear was very snug in the hips but super loose In the midsection. A larger size would have made the top even less flattering. I think it would work better for someone who is busty but with narrow hips.

It looked like a tent. I thought the material was going to be silkier- it felt like cheap polyester.
It did not look good. I am a slender person but this dress did nothing for me.

This dress definitely made the evening fantastic. I loved having a designer dress without the price!
This was a great dress for my husband's company dinner party in Las Vegas. The classic black will work for almost any event. The material had just enough to make if comfortable and still very flattering to my (ahem) curvy figure. The dress (as most this style are) was short in length, but was a perfect fit for my petite stature. The only problem I encountered was with the very top. The beading was not exactly as I expected - it was lots of small gold and silver beads. Also the inside of the neckline kept folding over exposing the rubberized elastic. perhaps some double sided tape would keep it in place?

Gorgeous!
I got this dress as a backup and only ended up trying it on. The fabric has a nice weight to it, so it drapes beautifully. I'm a size 10, but the 8 fit me better, so it runs a little large. I look forward to wearing it another time.

Loved it!
It was very comfortable to wear! The neckline was fabulous and made the dress! Got lots of compliments on it! The only thing that didn't fit perfectly on me was the area in the small of my back...it seems to gape a little bit there. Other than that it was awesome! The length was great...not too short, which I was worried about. Overall, a great choice! And my whole experience with Rent the Runway was awesome!

Elegant and simple look.
Dress overall fit nice. Size was a bit small for my hips which caused the material to gather at my mid-section but wasn't very noticeable. Received so many compliments. I'm not big on accessories so the detail sequence was perfect compliment to the dress. I loved the one sleeve look!

Beautiful dress, so glad I ordered it!
I wore this to a unique benefit that had an indoor VIP party prior to the main event. It was hard to decide to go short or long as this was a black tie optional affair. This dress is short, but was not too short even though the trend of the evening was long. I did not feel out of place. It was very comfortable and I received "wow" type comments throughout the evening. I actually decided to go with gold accessories for shoes, purse and earrings. With the beaded top, you can go either gold or silver. The only reason this is four stars and not five is that the dress is right on the verge of being a little "worn," especially at the top where you want it to stay put. That being said, I was fine all evening. For those of us in the D size, a strapless bra worked just fine.

Great, comfortable party dress
Awesome dress! I got a 10 and an 8--they both fit but since I was in Vegas my friends and I decided I should go with the more snug size. The material is stretchy and the best part of the dress is the rubber lining on the seam around the neckline--keeps the dress in place and hides a strapless bra. The beading and material are gorgeous and classy. It is a little short--may not be appropriate certain occasions but its a perfect party dress!

Of course, being able to rent a dress makes things a lot easier when trying to choose what to wear but the ease of using the online shopping was even better! It was fast and reliable.
For me this dress was great! It looked really elegant without being too over done. We had a formal Marine Corps dinner that we had to attend and this worked out perfect! On me, the size was good but too big in the waist area. Overall a beautiful dress that I would definitely rent again!

Short!
When this dress arrived I was expecting a short dress, but it was shorter than I was comfortable wearing to an event. I have long legs and long arms, the sleeve was also too short for my arms. I found the beading at the top to be unimpressive based on how I saw the photo.

This dress is so true to the sizing chart! I ordered a 10 and then a 12 for a back up and the 10 was perfect! It was a BIG hit for the bachelorette party in Vegas! LOVE this dress...soooooo comfortable and nice and loose in the midsection to cover if you over eat or drink :-)

Disappointing
This dress was a disappointment. I usually wear a size 4, and the 4 in this dress just didn't work. It was not complimentary at all and was tight around the hips but loose around the mid-section. I have a pretty good figure, but this made me look really frumpy. The 4 didn't fit right, so I had ordered a 6 as backup, but that was so big that it looked like a garbage bag on me! The fabric seemed a little cheap, although the beading at the top was very pretty. I ended up not being able to wear this dress (but thankfully I had ordered another RTR dress that I wore and LOVED!).

Easy to wear
I wore this to my boyfriend's 40th birthday celebration and it went over really well. It is true to size so for me it fit snug around the hips and thighs but loose on the bust. The long sleeve was really fun. Great dress - a different look for a lot of fun occasions.
