so easy to use!!
Rented as second option for an outdoor tent wedding, ended up wearing this dress instead of my original first choice. Runs a bit large on top but the button worked just fine, no need for extra pinning,tape, etc. Awesome color for a summer wedding, very comfortable, would rent again!

Rocking Red Dress
Wore this for my birthday and LOVED the color. I do have to say though that it was a lot bigger than I expected. I'm really small on top and it didn't fit me that well however when the fabric fell it fell nicely. The sleeves are a little restrictive and the neckline doesn't really stay in place. The length was perfect for a short girl ( not too high and not too long). I would say that if you are looking for something different then this is the dress, however if you are looking for a run of the mill red dress this isn't it. It's constructed beautifully and is really geographically interesting in terms of structure. Do it if you dare!!!

Gorgeous Dress!!
Wore this dress during a weekend trip to Vegas. Absolutely loved it, received many compliments. Runs a little large up top but overall fit very nicely. Couldnt have asked for a better dress to wear.. I wish I could own this dress!!

I felt so confident and had a great time rocking this dress!
This is one of my favorite rentals so far. The dress is a beautiful color and the style can easily be dressed up or down. I wore it to a more casual party, but this could have doubled as a dress for a formal or something fancier with the right shoes and accessories. The fabric drapes very nicely and is forgiving. The dress does run large, so definitely order a size down for your back up. Everyone loved this dress, so be prepared to be showered with compliments on your style!

I legitimately received dozens of compliments on this dress!
I was hoping to wear the size small but ordered an XS as my back up size because the reviews all said it runs a little large. Because of hurricane Sandy, RTR was only able to send me the XS but it ended up fitting perfectly! I wear a 34D and it still fit wonderfully..I think that the S would have been to big! It does run short but it is still fun, sassy, and classy--definitely not so short that it looks trashy or classless!

Pretty Color!
This dress is a really nice, bright, lipstick-red color. The draping was really pretty, too. The only issue was that it was way too big on top. I had to use a lot of fashion tape to keep the front from falling open. Otherwise it was a fun look that received many compliments.

The dress was big in the front. It runs a little large, I would recommend ordering a size down! Very beautiful dress though. Perfect for a day to night look.

Didn't Fit Right
Looked cute in the picture/on the hanger but was quite large when I put it on. It fit strange in the hips and there was way too much material on top. Would probably look better on someone not hourglass shaped.

Short? Yes.
This dress was an amazing color, and the top fit beautifully. Unfortunately the dress was cut far too short for my taste. I rented the M and the L. While the L was too big, I ended up wearing it because the M felt like I was wearing a loose shirt (and covered about as much). This might work on someone who is very petite, but I definitely won't be renting it again.

way too big for me =(
This is the only dress that I have not totally loved that I rented from RTR. =( I wanted to order a small and extra small, but only the XS was available, so I just rented that size. I was hopeful from positive reviews from other girls that are about my size that it would fit, it looked so great in some of the pictures! But the dress was totally swimming on me up top. The bottom was fine, not too short, but the top just had so much extra fabric it looked silly. I tried snapping it, not snapping it, belting it, fashion taping it.. Nothing looked right at all. In the end instead of trying to force something to fit me, I just wore one of my own dresses because I couldn't get it to look remotely flattering. The sleeves were also extremely annoying and kept rotating, there was nothing I could do about them. If you are small chested, and just small in general, this might not be a good fit for you. Boo.

Dress was gorgeous!! Even more gorgeous in person. Lots of compliments! Perfect for a wedding!
Runs a little large. I ordered the XS and Small based on the reviews but went with the XS. It fit like a glove! Even with a larger chest, small waist and bigger behind, it hit all the right places. Definitely needs a little jewelry to dress it up. Comfortable and everyone loved it. Not usually a huge fan of red but this shade was perfect!!

Easy to wear!
Loved the dress! I was nervous that the XS would be too small in the hip butt area after reading several reviews so I had a S sent as well but the XS was plenty big! I am curvy but petite and I feel like if you were really thin the dress would just look like a bag. It is so easy to wear and really comfortable. Great dress to dress up or down.

Stood out in the crowd, really comfortable; yet sophisticated!
LOVED this dress. It was extremely comfortable. It looks super classy and sophisticated but is also sexy because it is very short. Got so many compliments. The fabric smelt a little funky but it wasnt too serious and it looked so great it didnt even matter.

This dress looked amazing! Perfect for a girls weekend in south beach.
Dress is low cut and flattering but was slightly large around the waist, definitely requires a belt to cinch the waist in.

This is an absolutely gorgeous and flattering dress! The dress runs small on the bottom, so if you have hips order one size up. Wish I didn't get sick for the party otherwise this dress would have been a hit!

this is the third time I have used RTR and I love it and have never been disapointed I reccomend it to all of my friends
I loved this dress! I ordered the small and extra small and I ended up wearing the small... the xs was a little shorter! my favorite part about the dress was the drapped neckline has a small button so you can keep the girls into play or let them out! works way better than using the tape!
KateApril 19, 2012
it looks like everyone wore a belt. does it need to be belted?
RTRApril 20, 2012
Hi Kate, the dress doesn't come with a belt however it's a great way to accentuate your waist in this style!

Not quite...
I'm pretty busty, and I thought the drapey fabric on the front would be flattering and more conservative, but the clasp to keep the bust fabric together would not stay closed if I shifted at all. I couldn't wear this to my event in fear of a serious wardrobe malfunction.

Great dress but too small :(
When I first saw this dress I loved it!! The red is gorgeous and the fabric is light and airy, perfect for an informal outdoor wedding reception!! Unfortunately the fit was not for me. I am smaller on the top than on the bottom so the top of this dress was overwhelming large while the bottom was too tight. I was disappointed with this particular dress but will definitely be renting a dress in the future, as the staff at Rent the Runway is exceptional!!

Very flattering fit.
Definitely more orange than red. Shorter than I expected. I ordered a Small (I'm pretty much always a small), with a Medium as a back up. The dress was super short, so I went with the medium.

Beautiful dress & color but not for pear shapes :-(
If you are a pear shape or have big hips this is not the dress for you. The color is beautiful, a gorgeous vibrant red, and the draping of the top is sexy while still covering a lot. Unfortunately the bottom half didnt look anything like in does in the photos for me because I have a tiny waist and big hips/bottom :-( It was pulled so tight on the bottom it was ridiculous. I was sad because I thought the skirt was a looser fit but it's not, especially the lining underneath. As you can see from the photos the dress looks gorgeous on many girls just sadly not my J Lo body type. But it was my backup so all is good! :-)

beautiful color - large in the bust and tighter on the hips
I am 5'5" but I wear 3-4" heals, so when I have my heals on, my hips and thighs stretch and are thinner. Thank goodness. The bottom half of this dress has a liner which of course ran small - i am so thankful I got the Large instead of the Medium. This dress and its material are not meant for anyone with a butt!

Loved the top on this dress.... the bottom... not so much.
This dress would have been perfect for me had the torso not been so tight. I am 5'9" and a size 10-12. The dress fit gorgeously on the top, however, the bottom was skin tight and VERY short. It may look better with someone with a smaller frame, however, it just wasn't the dress for me.

The dress is very tight around the bottom and the waist line is bunchy. The top runs very large and bottom runs small.

A guy walked up to me and said it was the best dress he had ever seen!
Very low, very short, and very sassy! There is a lot of fabric on the sleeves which took some getting used to. I say it runs a little small because I have curvy hips and the skirt portion was a smidge snug. But it was still a great dress!

Beware -- the dress is really short. But if you're okay with that, it's great for a party or a night out! The color is a little more orange in real life.

This dress was so comfortable and fun for my sorority charity dinner! Awesome color too!
The top of the dress was super comfortable and loose fitting, but the bottom was very snug. Since it was a medium, I didn't find it as short as other renters said, but it was tight! The color was very bright and everyone told me all night how fantastic the dress looked though! Definitely a great choice!

Only get this if you're comfortable being a show-stopper.
Heads=turned. Both male and female. fit great, a little short if you have a semblance of a booty. Paired it with a skinny gold belt and gold shoes; it made a huge difference.

Awful!
I usually wear a 4-6 and ordered a M after reading the reviews. I am only 5'6" and the dress was SO short I could not even wear it! According to the site this dress was good for an "apple" shape and it certainly was not. The top wouldn't even snap where it was supposed to and despite my really not having a butt it was almost too small to cover it. I'm not sure how anyone has said anything positive about this. Very disappointing.

Rent the Runway makes looking amazing an easy process. There's no panic of searching for a fashionable dress or waiting in lines, Rent the Runway does it right... for a fraction of the price.
This dress offered the perfect amounts of fashion, class, and seduction. The length of the dress was perfect, not too short and not too long. I added a gold belt and gold jewelry to accent the bright pop of red color. This dress could have been worn to a semi-formal, on a date, or even to a formal event. This dress was very multi-functional! Great rental! It definitely showed off my best features!

VictoriaAugust 20, 2012
Hey Nicole, did you find yourself wishing it were a bit longer? Were you tugging at it at all? The only reason I ask is because I am 5'9 and absolutely love this dress but I am a bit worried that it is going to be too short.
RTRAugust 29, 2012
Hi! The length of the dress will be absolutely fine for you, do not worry! You will love it.

My boyfriend marveled all night at how gorgeous I looked and I even got compliments from other wedding guests and the DJ!
I can't say enough good things about this dress. The color was absolutely stunning. The cut was perfect. It's a bit short, but nothing to worry about. I rented the XS as a backup and that was far too short, although it fit otherwise. I wouldn't recommend this for bustier ladies since it's pretty lowcut, unless that's what you're going for. I ended up safety pinning it on top just below where the snap is to keep it closed, since the snap was just slightly too high and didn't fall right on my chest. I'm not working with much, so the low cut line was a nice contrast to the long sleeves. I accessorized with a leopard belt (would definitely recommend some skinny belt to give it a bit more shape) and nude stilettos. Would definitely rent again (or buy!!). The color of the dress on the website is more accurate than in my photos. It's a beautiful and bright red that really pops and almost has an orange tone to it.

I rented this for the Rent the Runway Capstone weekend in NYC! What a blast!
At first, I was not a fan when I put this dress on, but once I belted it and figured out the right accessories, it looked great. I felt like it was a lot of fabric for my petite body, but the short length made it work! I fit in both the small and medium, but the medium just looked a little better. The 'V' front was loose and baggy and I wish I had some double stick tape because the snap kept showing instead of having the fabric cover it up. Overall, it was not my favorite rental, but I did receive compliments and I am glad I rented it.
