So many compliments!

Size worn: 6
Rented for: Formal Affair
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.

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

Size worn: 10
Rented for: Wedding
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!

Great dress for a party!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
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!

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.

great color

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
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!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
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!

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.

I loved the color and quality of the material. My only complaint is that for curvy women, the bottom doesn't lay as well as it does on the model.

Great holiday party dress

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
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!

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.

Overall fit: True to Size

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.

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.

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!

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.

Gorgeous, fashion-forward work outfit

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

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

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