Great holiday party dress

I rented this for my husbands work holiday party. I ordered a 6 & 8 but the 6 was not available. I wish it was because I loved this dress but the 8 was a little too big- I ended up belting it and wearing a padded bra to try to fill it in! It was SO comfortable and I would love to rent it again in the right size!

Perfect fit!

I loved the fit and silhouette of this dress. The neckline was one of my favorites. Definitely a must rent!

Awkward fit

Great color. But it did not fit me - tight in the waist and hips and accentuated my stomach which I did not expect for a fit and flare dress. It would probably work better for a less curvy silhouette.

Great for a nice party!

Great dress. Fabric is a little thicker/ rougher than I thought. True to size. Normally wear an 8 and this 8 fit great. Great for something nice, but not super fancy.

The ease of renting, delivering, celebrating and returning is almost unreal. Great experience!

Loved the dress overall, but glad I got a size up-bigger busted women beware! Tightness in the bust can lead to armpit "bunching" (aka side boob disaster) and dress bunched in back a bit. Material was thick enough that it was supportive, no bra necessary. Perfect length for an outdoor, TX wedding!

Beautiful dress, I am straight and narrow with small boobs and it fit like a glove!

Fabric a little thick , great for tall girls but may be too long if you are on the shorter side

So many compliments!

The dress fit perfectly even though my back up size was not available. I just hoped the one size would fit and it did. The fit was perfect. The styling option with the dress really made the difference though. I received compliments all night long and was so excited to tell people all about rent the runway.

Light and comfortable

I was pleasantly surprised at how light this dress was. I wanted a dress I was comfortable in and was able to wear a sports bra with this. Runs true to size and easy to wear

Great dress and perfect for my event!

The top fit great but it fit awkwardly from the waist down. The waist had quite a bit of extra room and it was tight on my hips so it would tend to bunch up at my waist. This is probably just because I have a thin waist and wider hips. Other then that it was a great dress and perfect for one of my sorority's recruitment events!

Bold color!

I loved wearing this red dress! The color is amazing and the cut is really flattering. The dress is a bit form fitting through the hips - but in a really forgiving way. Comfortable to wear, easy to dance in- I got compliments all night.

Great color, didn't love the cut. Worked fine for rehearsal dinner but wasn't a thriller

Thick material, didn't love the narrow shoulder cut

The cut of this dress was very weird to me. It closed over itself in the front and made a weird bulge at my left side.

Simple but stunning! All the compliments!

I normally wear a 10 in all my RTR orders but this time the 8 did the trick. I rented this for a formal work affair and paired it with nude strappy open toes heels. I am 5'9" so the length was just a few inches above my knee. I loved the cut of the top of the dress; it added something a little sexy to what would ordinarily be a basic dress. Pair with some kind of necklace for sure. Color is awesome. Would rent again...I felt like a million bucks!

Beautiful dress for a party!

I loved this dress with a chunky necklace. I wore a leather jacket and booties because it was December and chilly, but the fit and style made it easy to style.

Great dress

This dress was perfect for a spring wedding. The only thing I was dissipated about was how the clip on the shoulder had been repaired prior to my rental. It was not done well and didn't hold up on the dance floor. Luckily I was able to fix it with some help. As far as the fit this dress is great. The dress shows your shape without showing too much. I would absolutely recommend this dress.

A classy dress with a pop of color

I loved the bright color of this dress! I stood out in the sea of black at a benefit. It ran true to size and paired nicely with a black blazer and black fleece tights (it was only 5 degrees out) but would also look nice on its own.

Comfortable and classy!

I love the cut of this dress. It was very comfortable. Perfect for a late fall wedding. I was able to wear a strapless bra with it. I went for the RTR look and also wore the gold necklace featured on the model.

Christmas Wedding

Although the dress came a day late, I was still able to wear it. I got the 8 and 10 as I am in between sizes post-baby. I wore the 10 just because of the weird side bunching at the zipper when I wore the 8. I wore a normal bra but crossed it in the front and secured with double stick tape.

Red!

Who doesn't love a red dress to stand out before a sea of black at a black tie affair ? I'm between an 8-10 size wise. The 8 was a bit tight across my 36 D girls (I also have broad shoulders) and I thought the cut of the dress called for a loser fit so I wore the 10. Simple cut and style. Just a fun colorful dress!

Great color

The color of this dress is great but it had a seam that stuck out funny. The cut at the top of the dress was not flattering for me but with the little sweater it was cute.

Fabulous dress

Loved, loved this dress. It was about an inch too tight in the hips. I'm pear-shaped. But otherwise it was perfect. It was hard to let this dress go. The seams hit in the right places. The top fit perfeftly.

I rented as an option but it felt slightly young for me (I'm 38) to wear to my husbands work holiday party so I went with another option. Please ignore day glo white legs !

Comfortable and flattering dress for special evening with friends!

Dress was very comfortable- both in terms of material and fit. A little bit on the larger size and not too tight or form fitting. Also its a GREAT color (vibrant and bold) - received many compliments!

Did not wear

I sized up for my bust based on other reviews. The 6 did sort of fit on my bust but it wasn't anything close to flattering on my lower half unfortunately. Folds hot weird places and it was weird to me that one strap has a visible hook and eye closure. Did not wear.

Perfect combination of fun and sophisticated!

I received many compliments on this dress. I thought it ran a little big. All of the dresses I own are either a size 2 or 4 but the 2 was too large. RTR overnight-ed me a smaller size and it fit perfectly! I was so happy with the fit, the vibrant red color, and the overall comfort of the dress. This was my first experience with RTR and I will be using them again!

It was a beautifully made dress. My boyfriend loved it and I felt beautiful from all the compliments. I would def rent it again and I wish I could have kept it. I wore strappy black pumps, gold earrings and bracelets. It doesn't need a necklace.

Runs Large

I wish I could have worn this dress since the color was great and perfect for a Valentine's date. I am usually a size 6, but the size 6 was way too big all over - armholes, bust, and waist - that I didn't end up wearing this dress. I would like to try this dress again, but will definitely be going down one (or two) sizes.

Loved the color of this dress!

This was actually my backup dress for a gala (the first one fit oddly). I thought the dress fit great on the top, but since I'm on the shorter side, ran long. I ended up belting it to shorten the length, and that worked out perfectly. Overall, a solid dress!

Ordered a 2 but should have ordered a 4. 2 was just a bit too snug all over and didn't fit quite right.

Not a fan

I ordered this dress for my engagement party and ended up wearing the back up dress and loving it so much more. It was really large up top and smaller on the bottom. If It was mine and I could alter it, I would have loved it, but with such a large top it just was not flattering.

I got this dress as a back up for another dress I ordered. It ran very small!

This dress is not for busty women! I felt like it was tight all over, no matter what I did.
