Absolutely breathtaking.
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this dress to my sorority's semi formal, and it stole the show. I had originally ordered another dress and last minute had to pick out this one due to the first being ruined by the previous renter, and THANK GOODNESS. The moment I put this dress on I knew it was the one. The fabric is a pretty heavy, being a thick wool/flannel fabric but when you twirl it fans out around you. BEWARE: this dress is not for the faint of heart when it comes to your breasts. With the help of some fashion tape, which RTR graciously gives you, I was able to keep the twins tamed but keep this in mind if you have large breasts. 5/5 and I wish I could have kept it!

Very unique dress
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
This dress is wool, which I didn't realize. Not that it made much of a difference, it's still really beautiful, but it could easily be a lovely fall party dress. It is very low cut, and you will need fashion tape. Tape solves gapping issue, but you'll need to feel comfortable showing a little side boob. I am, so that didn't bother me. What did bother me is how it fit around my waist. I have gained a little weight and I have a bit of stomach and unfortunately the waist part would not go any lower. This caused the top part to bulge out a bit. The fashion tape wouldn't let any exposure, but it was obvious when it was gapping. It was hard to sit up absolutely straight all night. I don't think an athletic build will have this issue.

Fun and unique dress for NYE!
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The dress runs true to size, and the waist band is forgiving with a little stretch so you don't have to worry too much about upper body bra fat. If you have a larger chest, I would not recommend this dress as there is the risk of falling out from every direction. I have a long torso, so the top fit me perfectly (the straps were not too long). Definitely needed a little fashion tape, but other than that all was good. Overall, a gorgeous dress - Got compliments on the dress all night!

One thing to note - on me, this dress went lower, and showed much more of my chest, than on the model in the picture provided (or than I would have liked) - see photo. I used tape to keep it in place, which worked fine. However, I would caution potential renters that it is likely more revealing than the picture suggests, so keep that in mind; might not be the best choice for a professional event!

I loved this dress! It's a perfect mix of sweet and sexy and it's a great length. I'm 5'10 and I thought it was a great length for a rehearsal dinner for a wedding. The back of the dress is beautiful and so is the material of the dress. It was a little low cut and open in the front, but I just used the fashion tape RTR gave me for free, and the problem was fixed!

So many compliments!
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented this dress in a 4 and a 2 and the 2 was much better. The only difference I could detect was that the straps/top of the 4 was really loose and as there is no way you can wear a bra with this dress that wasn't going to work for me. I wore it to a party that was related to a retrospective of Jean-Paul Gautier's work so the side boob that was unavoidable, even with tape, was totally appropriate, but it is definitely a daring little number. One of my top all time rentals (and I've rented almost 50 dresses!)

This dress was fun to wear because it's flattering and so unique. Also was comfortable for all the eating, drinking, and dancing at weddings!
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size

I'm usually between a 2 and 4 in dresses, so ordered both sizes and ended up wearing the 2. The fit was snug but comfortable, and had no issues with the top (didn't need double stick tape). This dress is gorgeous and unique. I loved the asymmetry of the top and the criss-cross in the back. The accordion pleats made the silhouette more flattering for someone with a straight, athletic shape.The color is great for a winter formal occasion.

This dress was so much fun to dance in. It wasn't constraining, and it was flowing. I felt like a princess.
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress emanates sophistication and elegance. It was classy, but subtly sexy. The band at the waist emphasizes slenderness while the A-line skirt enhances curves. The downside--I am fairly flat-chested and the diving neckline made that more noticeable. In addition, the sides are cut out so that it is nearly impossible to find a bra that works. This dress is not advisable for anyone with fuller chest. For those who have smaller breasts and a petite frame, this dress runs larger, I would order one size down. Despite all of these things, the dress was fabulous.

I liked the look of this dress and just wanted to rent it for fun! Definitely a fun festive dress to have, but I agree with the other reviews about the low V. Be prepared to use some tape or rock a weird shaped bra underneath.

2 words. Fashion Tape. I wore this dress for NYE, it was Stunning and I received the more compliments on this dress than any other rental. This dress is exactly what you see in the pictures! Runs True to Size and I would Recommend for anyone over 5'6. Also, Beware this dress plunges down to where your rib cage connects to your sternum. I have an A/B Chest so it was very easy to Tape and looked Beautiful.

Ugh, I'm so bummed about this dress. I got an 8 and a 10, I wish they made it in a 12. The material was so rich and amazing, and the style was SO cute. I actually got it to zip up all the way...with a lot of help from my mother. The waist band was just really small. I loved the way I looked in it, the girls looked good, it was just suffocating. I suggest getting this dress if you have a smaller waist it's so beautiful.

This dress has less pleats (accordion) than I thought-- which actually turned out great! It is made of thick wool, but fits beautifully into my body. I wore this for a date at a bar. This dress is subtly sexy but elegant at the same time! Very pleased with Rent the Runway's customer service too. The dress really tugs you in, so it makes you look skinny from the side, but doesn't affect your bust size! I'm definitely renting this dress again.

Overall fit: Large

I chose to get this dress because I knew the emerald color would look good on my skin. However, when I actually got the dress it was so dark I could barely tell that it was green. Not only that, but the straps were so incredibly long. Maybe it's just my body type, but I had to pin them so much it was crazy (and there's no way of pinning this dress discretely). Despite all of that, I did love how sweet and cute it was on me. My boobs looked fantastic, and I didn't have to wear any sort of bra (because the fabric was so thick). It also complimented my sort of broad shoulders. So yeah, it worked for the night, but I wouldn't rent again.

Rented this for my birthday. Fits very true to size and is very flattering if you have a small waist and hips. So comfortable too! I bought double sided tape but did not even need it- had a little side boob but was comfortable wearing this out without any reinforcements all night long. Highly recommend this dress.

I'm in Love With This Dress
Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I fell in love with this dress and ordered it for a formal immediately. I ended up not wearing it because of a zipper problem on the size that I needed to wear, which was slightly tragic. The only thing I didn't notice about it online was that THE BLACK STRAPS ARE ASYMMETRICAL. Also, the straps were kind of long on me, but that's probably because I'm short. Overall, this dress is so pretty and perfect for winter events.

The light weight wool and dark green makes it great for winter parties. It ran a touch large but actually is great for more coverage. Just don't forget tape.

The pleats were very well constructed for a wool dress, and the elastic seemed like a great feature to hold you in, but the chest area wasn't structured enough and my body type couldn't work it out with fashion tape.

The dress was impeccably made and absolutely beautiful but I have short waist and it was a disaster on me. Additionally, it was totally my fault for not reading thoroughly but the dress was a heavy wool crepe and totally not right for the season I planned to wear it.

The obvious con is just how sexy this dress is... I got it as a backup dress for my Dad's formal Christmas party... while this dress was fantastic for me, it was too sexy for the crowd. Keeping the ladies locked up was also a bit of an issue, but nothing a healthy dose of dress tape couldn't fix!

Gorgeous, sexy, sophisticated dress
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress to a late Sept wedding and LOVED it. It runs a little large in the bust area (I am a 6, 34DD) but I think it is meant to be that way. I also have a tattoo on my rib cage and this showed it off a little, which was cute. At first this dress seems very conservative from the photos, but it is definitely more sexy when you put it on because of the fit on the bust and the peekaboo in the ribcage area. This would be great for a date night during the winter or a christmas party if your office is a little more liberal. I will definitely rent this dress again, if not buy it.

I definitely got a lot of compliments on this dress, but I feel like it may look better on a girl that doesn't have an hourglass shape - I felt very aware of my curvey-ness. Also, the bust can be a little awkward, so definitely get some fashion tape.

Overall fit: True to Size

This was my backup. I didn't end up wearing it b/c it was more revealing than I wanted to go for a family affair (cousin's wedding.) It is a very pretty dress, the material is a light weight wool. I am usually a size 2, small ribcage, capital C cup. The 2 fit fine, but I would've worn the 4 for more coverage. This is a lovely dress, but I agree it's better for someone with a smaller bra size and for an occasion when you want to be more sexy. Also would be hard to wear a bra with it.

My only caution is that the dress is very low-cut and somewhat backless so you need to figure out an undergarment situation. My suggestion is a combination of a backless bra, fashion tape and tacking the front V together. But overall a beautiful dress!

Was so excited to rent this dress, but the bust was absolutely indecently small-- I'm a standard size 4 with a C cup, and while the bottom of the dress looked so pretty, the top was WAY too skimpy-- far beyond the help of Holywood tape, unfortunately. This dress would be better for a small bust with a small rib cage-- not really for an hourglass silhouette. It looked nothing like on the model.

The fabric on this dress was definitely not as nice when I received it as it appears in the pic (maybe the dress I received had been worn a lot?) Despite that, I LOVED it. The cut and shape of the dress was VERY flattering. The top part of it was a little loose on me, though, so I definitely agree with the other ladies who suggested using double-sided tape with this dress. I will definitely rent it again.

I loved this dress.... great cool weather dress with quality materials and heavier than usual fabric, beautiful flowy shape... but was surprised by how revealing it really was in the chest area! My bust line opened more than it does on the model in the picture! I was surprised to actually use the smaller of my two sizes. I chose the smaller one even though it made my waste line tight, but offered a better fit for my small bust. (Say yes to fashion tape!!)

I would say do not order this dress if you are short! The top half drapes strangely and moves around a lot because it's made for someone with a longer torso. Also, The V neckline might need to be pinned because it's much more plunging than it appears in the picture On the positive side, the emerald green color is absolutely fabulous in person!

The dress fits very true to size - I am usually a 2-4 on top and 4-6 on the bottom but because it is a-line on bottom the 4 was perfect. Two things that I would want a friend to know before she rented it is it is on the shorter side (but I'm 5'9) and I had to wear shear stockings also it is very low cut but I used some Hollywood tape to make sure I wasn't showing an inappropriate amount of cleavage. It really is a beautiful dress and GREAT for winter events.

This is truly a beautiful dress in terms of quality and craftmanship. I would say it runs true to size, but I found that the top can be too revealing if you have a full chest. I'm usually a size 4 and 34C. I ended up going for the size 6 because I needed more coverage in the bust. I also had to do a serious Hollywood tape job and to pin the straps shorter in the back (I wore my hair down so it wasn't seen) to keep from spilling out. I definitely needed to work on the fit of the dress, but it was worth it - such a beautiful dress.
