Fun Dress

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
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.

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.

Everything was perfect!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
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!

Perfect RED Hollywood holiday party dress!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
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!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
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.

Looks good from the waist up

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
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.

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.

Overall fit: True to Size

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!

Conservative but eye catching

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
I rented this dress for a work charity function and it was perfect. The cut flatters the body but isn't revealing or too sexy. I could have worn the smaller size but the midsection on both dresses was snug so I went with the larger. In terms of length, it hit just above my knees. The crepe fabric is pretty forgiving and this could easily be dressed up or down. Loved it!

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.

Pretty color, snug on chest

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
The 4 was a little snug around the chest. I thought from the pictures that this dress was fairly casual, but it was actually more formal (because of the fabric) than I expected. It was pretty, but I felt like it was tight in unexpected places. The red is really beautiful in person, but I wouldn't rent again and probably wouldn't have worn it if I had another option on hand.

This dress was perfect for the occasion! I wanted a dress conservative enough for a work event, but still stood out in the crowd. As host of the event I needed to be easily spotted and this did the trick. My alternate size was out of stock so I was lucky this ran true to size and fit great. Fitted but plenty of room to love around in. I got a lot of compliments too. Overall I was very happy with my rental!

Super comfortable, and a cool shape to the dress. There is some weird construction around the waist that bunches up a little, but it's not too big of a deal. The hem is slightly asymmetric which is pretty cool too. Overall great dress, and got a few compliments too.

This was my first time using Renttherunway and it was a great experience. I got many compliments from strangers as well as close friends, one of which said I looked like a movie star. I have another wedding to go to in 2 weeks and can't wait to rent through them again. I rented this dress and I also rented the necklace with it as a statement piece. These two look great together and I highly recommend this dress. The only issue I had was that the dress bunched in the middle ever once in a while.

Dress fit well and I loved the color. Agree with others about the top - right was cut narrower than left side. It was a cool evening so I wore a bolero with an antique pin. Length also good for me which is sometimes a problem since I am petite. Would rent it again!

Pretty cut, but not as flattering as I would have hoped.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
I loved the cut of the dress and thought it would work for a night out, but it wasn't as flattering on my figure as I would have liked. The neckline is beautiful and I love how the straps cut in on the chest--it looked great with a statement necklace. However, the skirt doesn't flare out as much as I thought it would, and so it was just too straight on my pear shaped body. I got the size up as well, but then the top was too lose so that one didn't work either.

Nice dress, but awkward fit

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Overall, I did like this dress - great color and style. However, the seams are a bit odd and cause some bunching around the waist line and just fell kind of awkwardly. Would've liked to be more fitted to my waist. But would probably be great for a less curvy silhouette.

Size worn: 8
Rented for: Party
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!

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.

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!

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 :)

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.
