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.

Super cute but runs small--great to show off shoulders
I got this as my backup because the 2 wasn't available so I could only get the zero and based on reviews I thought it might be small--and it was. That said I could tell it would be a really great dress if I didn't have to not breath to zip it up. Color was great, hem detail was interesting and I really loved the top/arm shape--really great if you typically like halters or other cuts that show off your shoulders.

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.

I ordered a 10 (my usual size) and a 12 just to be safe and neither fit. Too snug/not flattering.
Too snug in the hips and stomach The extra fabric in the front did not cover stomach as shown in pictures Dress was much longer than shown in pictures

It was a little wide in the hips, but other than that it fit great. It was the perfect outfit for the rehearsal dinner I wore it to.

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!

Incredibly light, flirty and comfortable!
I LOVED this dress. First of all, you can wear it with a racerback sports bra! I'm a wedding photographer and it was great to work in - long enough that it didn't rise up when I lifted my arms, light enough that it had great swing and comfort, but not so light that it didn't stay down. It was extremely flattering the back hangs a lot lower than the model's photo shows. Great for girls with an athletic build/broad shoulders!

Comfortable and flattering!
Everyone loved this dress! Might have been able to wear a 4, but the 6 was comfortable, maybe a little roomy in the bust. This dress could go formal or casual and is super comfortable as the fabric has stretch . A nice length for those of us not interested in thigh views.

Had so much fun I forgot to take a picture
I. love. this. dress. I have a little more weight on right now, so 6 is more normal right now than the 4 in my profile. This dress is so flattering (though I wore spanks just to feel a little more confident in the waist area). The fabric is rich and vibrant, and I actually had a hard time deciding which shoes and accessories to wear because just about everything I tried looked fantastic. I really wish I had snapped a picture or two out of sheer love for the dress. You can wear a normal bra, and it does have the little snaps in the straps, but looking back, I wish I had some additional fashion tape on hand just to better secure my bra straps. My only reason for not giving a full 5 stars is the new packaging from RTR. Unlike any other time I've ordered, this dress came very creased and wrinkled (and the hanger was broken), so I had to spend about 20 minutes steaming it. While the garment bag looks a little more professional, I was fearful to reuse it and potentially cause more wrinkles pre-wedding. Perhaps adding a hard back to the bag or some tissue paper in the folds of the dress would fix the shipping issues.

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.

Gorgeous, fashion-forward work outfit
I wore this dress for a work meeting recently. I paired it with a chambray denim cropped blazer and gold Kendra Scott jewelry. The dress fit very well. It was slightly large in the stomach area, but fitted across the chest, so I don't think going up or down would have helped me. Very appropriate length for work, slightly above the knee with heels.

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!

Decent last-minute dress for a formal work affair
I had to order a dress in a pinch, and this one worked out fine given the circumstances. The dress is simple and comfortable, and runs true to size. I just felt as though it didn't really do anything for my figure.

The dress was great.
I typically wear a size 6 in fit and flare dresses, but this one was a little snug around the middle for my comfort. I loved the neckline of the dress and the length was perfect for me; hit right above the knee.

Great dress for a party!
Received many compliments on this dress! I loved the color and the fit. The 6 and the 8 both fit well, I would have preferred to wear the 6, however there was a crease in the size 6 around the waist that was very noticeable when wearing so I decided to wear the 8 which was a tad large. Would rent again!

This was the perfect dress for my charity work event.
This dress is a great color and has a structure that makes is perfect for a formal work event. It runs true to size but I wore the larger size that I ordered wince it was for work and I didn't want to worry about it being to short. I would definitely recommend this dress for a work event. The color pops and is the perfect amount of dressy!

Slightly odd fit but fun wedding guest dress
I ordered both a 4 and a 6, and ended up wearing the 4. I tried the 4 on first and thought it was maybe a bit snug, but when I tried the 6 on I was surprised at the size difference - the 6 was way too baggy. I am small chested so I had plenty of room up top on the 4, but the dress hits a little oddly on the hip area. I didn't think it was super flattering at first, and honestly almost decided not to wear it, but I tried it on with some Spanx to smooth everything out and it looked much better. The dress was comfortable and fun to dance in - I would recommend it for narrower-hipped ladies.

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 color
Customer service was awesome, as always! This dress was such a good time to wear. Very simple and classic, but with an interesting neckline and skirt. I have fairly "athletic" shoulders and this really showcased them. If you have issues with your arms, I wouldn't suggest. It also is fairly tight, so I would size up for the backup dress. *Definitely a strapless bra kind of dress. I typically don't wear a lot of color, so this was fun for Valentine's Day at the symphony with my husband :)

I rented this for a Valentine's Day party at a club, I got so many comments on the dress!
The fit was amazing! It thinned me out in the right places and added curves I don't have. The material was absolutely comfortable, it was thicker material but that made it perfect for a 60 degree evening. I am 5'7" and the skirt ended right above my knees, so it was perfect length! I can't wait to rent another dress again! Thanks Rent the Runway!

Pretty dress
The dress fit a little tight in the chest but other than that it was very pretty. The cut was classy and the color was beautiful. I wore it to a fancy dinner and a play on Valentine's day. My previous dress did not fit but RTR overnighted me this one which was great service! I paired it with gold and black necklace, blank onyx earring and black heels. I also wore a black cardigan with it.

Great dress, subtle but pretty.
This dress was a little too tight for me and definitely didn't hide the belly fat. I liked the color and the style, but I think it's meant for someone thinner than me.

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!
