I loved the mix of conservative cover with an edgy flair
The dress was knee length, the color was vibrant and the fabric was think enough that it doesn't show imperfection but still allows for the dress to flow when you move.

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!

This dress was absolutely amazing! I would buy it if I could. It's a great standout color.
Fit was great-- not too tight, plenty of room for the bust, which I always worry about. Length was very appropriate, not too short or too long.

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.

Fun, Sassy Dress
This dress was really fun to wear to a wedding. The skirt was swingy and great for dancing. The fit was true to size. Loved the color! I also rented the necklace that the model is wearing and would recommend that as well.

Comfortable and flattering
The dress fits true to size and is very comfortable. Easy on, and it even has those little snaps that hold your bra strap in place (I went strapless though just to make it easier). The color is beautiful, brighter than a true red, and the silhouette is very flattering. I got compliments all day. Highly recommend and would wear again!

Rented this for a corporate cocktail party as a second option
This dress was so unique and lovely, unfortunately just not for my body type :( I would have loved to have worn this, however I just have a short torso and wider hips that did not work with this, has little stretch in the fabric, I'm 5'1", 140 lbs, hourglass... typically a 4-6 dress size. beautiful dress!

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.

Great color. I had to wear a strapless bra. I wore to a work party and the dress was conservative enough but also fun and festive.

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!

Fun Dress
This was a great dress for a dinner and opening night at the theatre. Overall a pretty basic dress but the neckline and and pleating on the skirt keep it interesting. The hips were slightly tight at first but fine with spanx. The bust fit perfectly but I'm pretty small chested,larger women will definitely want to size up. With a blazer this would be a great work dress that transitions easily to a night out, I was sad to send it back.

Dress was a bit small so didn't end up wearing it.
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.

My husband loved this dress!
This came as part of my Rent the Runway At Home Trial. Like most men, my husband loved this dress (go figure, a red dress). The fit was nice and pretty flattering. The length was good for me (being 5'10). This would be nice for a wedding or date.

Was between sizes and went up one because the arm holes are low and I didn't want them to cut in an unflattering way.

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.

Everything was perfect!
I was unsure this dress would be the right fit for me, I have a narrow top and very wide hips. So usually dresses that are tighter, a 6 will fit my hips but be really loose on top or a 4 won't go over my hips while the top fits. After chatting with a stylist online about my dimensions, I went with the 4 and 6. I ended up wearing the 4 - it fit perfectly! The 6 fit well too, a little more loose. I can't wait to use Rent the Runway again!

Beautiful color! Makes huge statement & impact when entering the room!
Beautiful construction, of course. A bit of fabric distortion at bust, didn't wear necklace, jewelry was sparkly bracelets and earrings. Perfect fit on athletic shoulders, a bit loose at waist, very comfortable.

I was the only one in red!
I wore this dress to a winter wedding and got tons of compliments! It fit kind of strange -- big in the top and small in the hips (I usually have the opposite problem), but I went with the bigger size and kept my arms down most of the night. I would definitely rent it again, it looked great and was really comfortable!

Loved this. Slimming as well. Even for big busts the neckline worked. I didn't end up wearing this one because another style worked better but I'll rent this one again. NYE anyone?

Perfect RED Hollywood holiday party dress!
This dress was perfect for the Hollywood holiday party I attended. I ordered the 10 and 12 and wore the 12. The type of bra I had to wear with it was tricky because of the cut of the arm holes, but a strapless one ended up working. The color was beautiful and the cut of the dress was different enough for people to take notice.

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!

Pop of color in the crowd!
This dress fits true to size and the material is very comfortable to wear! After wearing the dress for a few hours, the interesting cut of the top did become uncomfortable around my athletic-sized shoulders, but nothing to really complain about. Perfect length and cut for a spring/summer wedding or event.

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.

Has a unique cut around the arms/chest that makes if feel special while the length is classy
Fit true to size and complimented my curves. The length and high neck may look modest in the photo but the cut around the chest/arms is deeper than usual making it very sexy without revealing too much. It was perfect for the occasion and now I want to check out the designer's other dresses to see if they may have a similar cut!

Looks good from the waist up
The overall fit was fine, and it looks great from the waist up, but since I am pear shaped, the draping across the hips made me look extra wide there. I would only recommend it for less curvy women.

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!

Fun dress. Simple and elegant.
I wore this to my cousin's bachelorette party, and it was great. I initially was going to order the 8 and 10 because my measurements are between those two sizes generally, but I am a very true pear and the 6 fit me great. Definitely size down if you are smaller on top! There is ample room in the skirt for full hips. I'm 5'8" and the dress hit me just above the knee in front, so it's a good length. Overall great dress. I didn't love the stitching across the front of the skirt so I'm glad I didn't buy it, but it did the job for this event! Thanks RTR, I'm a convert!

This was my birthday party and I was going to stand out.
I love the cut of the shoulders on this dress and I made sure to go to the gym in the weeks before I planned to wear it. I never wear red. I wanted to surprise everyone and I did. One friend told me I should keep the dress. You could see me in all the group shots. I would definitely rent this one again.

Great color and fit!
I loved the color and the dress was very true to size. I also rented the neckalce, and loved it! My only problem was the dress seemed to be a bit worn out, and the seem was a little frayed. But no one noticed, and it was comfortable for a night of dancing!
