This dress made me feel like a model!
Size worn: L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I was so excited to try my first RTR dress, but I was nervous about the fit, especially since there was only one size available for the date I needed. Fortunately, I read all the past reviews and looked at what other women my weight and height had worn so I felt fairly confident that the dress would fit. When I took the dress out of the package it looked sooooo small I started to get really nervous, but the material is so stretchy it fit like a glove and was so flattering! I am usually self concious about my hips and avoid dresses that have a pencil shape skirt but the ruching and cut of the skirt actually made my hips look smaller and my waist look tiny! No Spanx needed! I got so many compliments all night long and my husband couldn't take his eyes off me! I really wish I owned this dress! A couple of comments related to other reviews: - I was able to zip the dress up myself but it was tricky! Another set of hands would be very helpful. Also, this size did have a hook and eye above the zipper, which was great for keeping the dress zipped while I danced all night! - I am very small busted so I wanted to wear a bra with the dress. I was easily able to wear a strapless bra with the strap pulled down low and the dress held everything in place so my bra did not show at all during the night. - The color is much more violet blue than it looks in the picture but it is a gorgeous color and I liked it even better than the blue in the picture.

Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size

This dress was amazing I am so happy I went with it. This is my first experience with rent the runway and I will definitely be renting more dress's. I was a little worried after reading reviews because the small was the only available size for when I needed it. The dress does run small but the material is really stretchy and once it was on it gave a little and felt amazing the entire night! The zipper was extremely difficult to get up (it was really a 3 person job) and be carful not to get your skin! But, once the zipper is up it will not budge. I would recommend this dress for a wedding or a formal dinner event.

Classy Night
Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Was really nervous when they only had my size and all other reviewers said that the dress runs small. Ended up not being an issue at all! Yes it took my boyfriend holding the sides closed so I could zipper it, but there is definitely enough stretch to the material that it was not an issue. Felt perfect. Not too tight. Zipper stayed up all night (and there was lots of dancing) and there IS a hook and eye at the top (of the Small at least). Others also commented on side boob action - not a problem for me but I'm not very top heavy. Felt sexy and classy. Lots of compliments on the dress! Paired with blue/green heels and green/gold jewelery.

Ordered both a small and medium, which I thought would be too big, but the medium ended fitting perfect! It does run small so unless you are typically an xxs or xs...a medium is probably the way to go. The zipper is on the side and does require an extra set of hands to zip up. Wish there was a hook and eye closure for it too. Beautiful color and very comfortable fit!! Loved it!

LOVED IT!
Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I was so nervous when renting this dress because of all the reviews about it running so small, but they didn't have a medium available for my date so I said a prayer and went with the small. IT WAS PERFECT! Yes, it is tight, but the material is thick, so it keeps everything properly in place. The one thing I would change is the zipper does tend to slip and there is no eye-hook, but I added a safety pin just below where it zips to the top and it worked like a charm. Everything stayed in place and I received tons of compliments. I will say I wish it was more blue than purple, but regardless, I felt really beautiful in this dress.

Perfect Miami "Winter" Wedding dress!
Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The dress was awesome! Would definitely rent again! Color is a has a little more blue (nearly navy, but not quite) hue than the picture, which indicates a violet. Also comes in two other colors. The fabric is a quality thick stretchy fabric; once I was in it, I felt secure but still able to get on the dance floor. It did most definitely did take two girlfriends to get the zipper up, but wasn't too tight or uncomfortable once I was set. The front is modest enough I felt completely covered; there is a little side boob action, but the top and lining is snug enough I never worried about anything moving around or any wardrobe malfunctions. No boob tape needed. Length was classy. Dress was amazing!!

Pretty dress but not my favorite rental.
Size worn: M
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I have been eyeing this dress for some time and finally had an event to rent it. As other reviewers have commented, it runs small. I am usually a 2/4 and while I could get the small on and zipped it, I preferred the fit of the M! The color is beautiful, as is the dress. I was able to wear a strapless bra, A few negatives: the zipper does not contain a hook and eye and did unzip throughout the night, the dress arrived very wrinkled and the layering on the back sat in a weird place on me - right on my butt (granted that may just be my height and length of my torso) but did cause a weird crease on my bottom. While it was a pretty dress, it was not my favorite RTR dress.

I tried on a medium dress and I though it was too small for me. I mean I'm a size 6/8 and I was bummed out. Unfortunately I didn't order a back up size. HOWEVER, and I say however, I tried the dress on again the day after and it was tight but fit like a glove. It adjusted to my body and suddenly became comfortable. It hid my baby belly very well and accentuated my curves. Va-Va-VOOM! My husband couldn't take his eyes off of me (an neither could some other people :-)). What a great night in a perfect dress.

"VERY FLATTERING"
Size worn: S

The color is beautiful!!! Great stretch and good fabric.... I would say the size runs a bit on the small side, It was a little tight in the waist. All in all it is a very attractive dress that will stand up next to evening gowns at a formal event or as a cocktail dress.

Absolutely LOVE this dress.
Size worn: M
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
As the other reviews stated, this dress is super stretchy and you will need an extra set of hands to zip you up, but once up, it's comfortable and beautiful. The purple is darker and deeper than the picture shows- it's a beautiful color. The fabric is thick and stretchy, very nice and lovely tailoring with an inner layer that sucks you in and the outer layer with the ruching that covers any lumps or bumps. I'm 5'6" with a 34b and at 127, I'm pretty straight and narrow, but I do have a bit of a tummy as I have two small kids and I'm 37 years old. So I was nervous about getting a medium as it was the only size available for my event. It fit great and I am betting I probably could have gotten away with the small, the fabric is so stretchy and forgiving. The ruching along the sides allows you to adjust where you want to hide things and to some degree how short you want the dress to be. I didn't use any Spanx, but could have fit them under. I did use the dress tape to tape the side of the dress down- you really can't wear a bra with this, but it works great if you just tape the side down to avoid extra side boob exposure. I wore it with nude colored ankle strap shoes, gold jewelry and the gold Kate Spade purse from RTR. Perfect for a night wedding at the Wynn in Las Vegas. I got a lot of compliments and stares. My husband could not keep his hands off me. It's a beautiful dress, I didn't want to take it off and I would absolutely rent again.

Great, comfortable dress. Would rent again.
Size worn: L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
As ALL reviews have previously stated, this dress runs very small. The medium took two friends to zip, but it looked great on and the fabric gives quite a bit, however I am super tall and the shoulder of the medium was pulling on me a bit too much and the Large was just so much more comfortable b/c of that. Also, as other renters have stated the zipper on the Medium does not have a hook at the top of the zipper and it must be pinned down or it will NOT stay up. The color of the dress is more purpley than it appears in most photographs. I think the flash makes it appear more blue than it really looks.

Cute but really small
Size worn: L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress to a friend's wedding, and it was cute. I thought the fit was a little weird because it was really small except in the bust. I was torn between the medium and the large because the top of the medium fit the best but it was really tight around my hips and waist. I ended up wearing the large because I knew it would be more comfortable for the long night ahead. I just have to add that the RTR staff was incredibly helpful to me with this rental. I screwed up some of the delivery details, and when I notified them, they immediately took care of it! I was raving about the service to everyone at the wedding!

Loved this dress! I felt totally glamorous and the fit was very flattering.
Size worn: L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
Pros: In general, I loved this dress. It fit great - even though it runs very small, the fabric is heavy enough, and the ruching is in just the right spots so that it still looks tasteful. I was worried about it being too short when I ordered it, but it fell just above my knees. Both the medium and the large fit, but the large was a bit more flattering (I wear a 6 normally), so I was glad I got the second size. The color was just gorgeous and I loved the back! Cons: The dress did come with a small stain on the back which was very upsetting at first, since it was on the size that fit better. I was able to tuck it into the ruching and we decided it was not noticeable, so I was able to wear the dress. Also, I read reviews that the tag comes out - it did for me too, mid event, so I wished I had used fashion tap to hold it in. I would recommend that if you rent this!

Great dress
Size worn: M
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this for a wedding and luckily paid attention to prior reviews. Wore the medium and it was even a little snug zipping up. The condition of the dress left a little to be desired. I've rented plenty of dresses from Rent The Runway. This dress arrived very wrinkled. The zipper would not stay up so I had to put a safety pin on the inside to stop it from coming down all night. Additionally, there was a rip in the top that I had to put a few stitches in. I also found that the dress really didn't lay right and I had to keep fussing with the tag in the back. Pretty dress but was constantly playing with it all night. Also, if you are busty you will probably need some tape for the sides.

I wore this stunning dress for the rehearsal dinner before our wedding, so chic and elegant!
Size worn: M
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I LOVE Preen dresses, as I have worn this designer before but I can see how they can be a tricky fit. I usually wear a 2 or S/XS and I had to have the help of two people to get me zipped into this dress in a medium. It is so amazing on! It fits as tight as a body con but the folds make it look effortless, elegant and sexy opposed to a sausaged-in type of look (which is what you would think with how tight it is haha) The colour is vibrant like an electric bluey-purple. You should have access to a steamer though as it has some wrinkles that didn't easily come out at the bottom. Overall loved loved loved this dress and wish I had bought it!

I ordered a 4 and 6, ended up wearing the 4. You definitely need a second pair of hand to zip this dress up but once you get it on it is very comfortable. The side boob is there and can be a little scandalous so you just have to keep an eye on it. Overall loved wish I could wear it again!

This dress definitely fits small. I do have a larger bust, but I think regardless you do need assistance getting the zipper up.

LOVED this dress! It's sexy and classy and the length is perfect.
Size worn: M
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
It runs VERY small. I am 5'5 and 115 pounds and I squeezed into a medium... and I probably could have fit into a large. The sides show a little side boob, but just a tiny bit so that it's not trashy. It's tight enough at the top that you don't have to wear a bra (even with big tots it should be okay) and you really can't wear one anyway, because the back goes below where the bra sits. I got a lot of compliments on this dress. I would definitely recommend nude shoes. Since the dress is dark, black shoes cut it off and made my legs look shorter. I put on nude pumps and it made a world of difference! All of a sudden I had legs for days! The length of the dress in the photo is a little misleading, it was hiked up a little from walking down stairs and I hadn't fixed it. I'm waiting for a better one... this is the only one I have from the night!

Size worn: M

I ordered for a wedding and had the M and L after reading the reviews. The reviews were pretty spot on and so I tried on both. I ended up wearing the M, because the L was a little too large in the top and there was a little too much side boob going on for a wedding and I didn't bring any Hollywood tape with me! The dress was easy to move in and I received compliments all night of how hot the dress was. I danced in it and it was such a fun dress I wish I owned it!

This dress was a bit difficult to zip but once it is on, it's very flattering. I would have gone with the medium except that my bust is on the small side and it would have had too much excess fabric on the top. I squeezed into the small and it was totally worth it. The color is great too!

WARNING: Runs extremely small. I am 5'6", 128lbs, 23B, and usually wear a size 6. The large fit super snug, but the dress is very flattering. Thick fabric is nice and hiding, and the subtle ruching and folds are in all the right spots. You can't wear a strapless bra (which freaked me out at first), but I was actually just fine without one! The dress is very tight just under your breasts, so it is supportive. (Side boob was not an issue for me since I am a b cup) I received so many compliments! I really wish I could buy this dress. Love it!

Loved this dress. I only wore it for a few minutes for a pageant interview, wish I got to wear it longer! It does run small. I am usually a size S (0/2) and wore the M. Didn't even bother to try on the S. Like others have said someone will have to zip you in. I highly recommend it. It's beautiful. This was my first RTR order and I was very impressed. Will rent again.

I rented this dress for a country club wedding in Hilton Head. I was very nervous as I do have an hourglass shape complete with large breast, very small waist and full hips and buttocks. This dress was incredibly flattering and hid and bumps I wanted hidden (wink). It is funky and hip yet flattering with the one shoulder and the fun back design. My only complaint about the dress is that it arrived with two small holes in the seam. After a quick call to RTR and their amazing customer service tot he rescue - I had it repaired a tailor nearby and they picked up the charge! GO RTR! As the other reviewers have mentioned - it is very hard to get into this dress by yourself. My husband had to zip me in... but it's worth it. I felt like a million bucks all night and received countless compliments. Would totally rent this dress again!

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This dress I could tell would of been great on but the sizing is crazy small! Order 2 sizes bigger than what you normally would wear. This was my first choice, but had to go with my backup dress because neither size fit. I'm around 110-115 lbs. I usually wear a 2 or a 4, but probably could have used a 6 or 8 in this dress. The dress did look beautiful and would of loved to have worn it if I could of.

Loved this dress! Super sexy with subtle side-boob! The men at the wedding particularly liked this dress. Although this dress in holds you I wish I would have wore spanx because you can see everything!

Small fit as everyone says... beware the zipper.
Size worn: S
Overall fit: Small

Definitely needed 2 friends to help zip this up but once it was on it looked amazing. Would have given it more stars if the zipper hadn't fallen a bunch of times and left little nicks all over my side.

So Flattering!
Size worn: M
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Great dress. I rented the red Preen dress of similar fabric and this one didn't disappoint, either. These dresses are so fab. and super flattering. I usually wear an 8 (or a large 6) and the medium was tough to zip, but it worked. The zipper tended to fall, so I put a safety pin as a "bar" under the zipper so it wouldn't fall down. Great dress.

RUNS VERY SMALL
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I attempted to wear this dress for a party....unfortunately, the only size available was a Medium and they didn't have a Large as a back-up size. I tried on the medium and could have pulled it off, but it was very snug and I was concerned that once I put a piece of lettuce in my mouth, the dress would just be too tight. The ironing job on this dress left something to be desired because once I put it on, the hem crease was out of whack...although this could have been because the dress was too tight on me. I would love to try this dress again....but in size Large.

Surprisingly easy process and fun to wear a new-to-me dress for the night.
Size worn: L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This dress runs VERY small. I'm usually a S/M and ended up wearing the L - it was still a bit snug for my tastes. My husband loved it even though I felt a little uncomfortable. The neckline/bodice is very flattering and the color is gorgeous.

Beautiful color, runs small
Size worn: S
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
I rented this dress for a cocktail party. I only got one size and wasn't able to wear it, because it was tight around the chest area. I wasn't able to zip the dress all the way up, however it fit perfectly elsewhere. I recommend getting a size up to what you usually wear (depending on your chest/ upper body build as well). The color is beautiful, and this would be a fun dress to wear to a cocktail party or a girl's night out. I recommend getting two sizes if your like it, so you can see what fits best.

Sexy dress!
Size worn: S
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is gorgeous!! As everyone else mentioned, this dress does run a little small. With that said though, the material was stretchy enough that I was able to wear a small, which is the size I normally wear. The side zipper is definitely hard to zip up, and I had to have my husband help squeeze me in the dress. Once zipped, the dress fit like a glove and did not feel small at all. It was just hard to get into, especially around the ribcage area! I ordered a small and medium and the small overall fit me better. I have a small chest and I didn't want the top to be baggy. I would definitely recommend this beautiful dress!!
