I am in between sizes and felt the smaller size fit better. Beautiful color and got lots of compliments.

This Dress is Amazing!! Not only stunning by very comfortable. Got compliments from everyone!
It was easy to throw on at the end of my daughters Wedding Reception. The material is so comfortable and falls along the body line so smoothly. Very comfortable and didn't have to worry about how it looked on me - everyone was complimenting and wondering where I bought it!

it was more baggy around the middle than I thought it would be. But I liked the feel of the material.

I had to send them both back as the slip hung down below the dress.
RTR was awesome and sent me another dress overnight for the wedding! I already told 3 new customers about RTR!

Easy return is so great and the option of a second size is awesome!
I wanted to wear the size 2 but the liner was longer then the dress hem and looked awful so I went with the 2nd choice of a size 4 a little big but it worked. Good thing I had 2!

Elegant. Flirty, and sophisticated. Great dress!
I read the reviews and thank the previous users for giving useful/helpful information. This dress was great! I'm small chested, and the rouging in the bust helped the girls! I usually wear dresses with 2 straps, and sleeveless, so this dress was outside my comfort zone, and I was so happy i chose it! It was stunning! The material lent itself to fitting in all the right places. I didn't wear spanx. I did notice that the lining peaked through at the bottom, so I did need to readjust every so often. The color was very vibrant and perfect for an October evening wedding. I got a lot of head turning in my direction, and received many compliments! Great ego boost! I have waist length curly hair, and wore my hair loosley up with gold drop earrings and gold bracelet. Gold and brown makeup. My shoes were black patent and gold. I have a tattoo on my right shoulder, and this dress let it shine as well. I would wear this again!

I had an event in NYC (and I don't live) -- the dress was waiting for me at my hotel!
I received so many compliments on this dress! I fit perfectly and as some who is busty but not very tall, it looked great on my body.

Great experience. I will rent again!
I ordered a 4 and a 2. The 4 fit perfectly, but the lining was hanging below the hem. The 2 fit fine, just a little tight. I received them on a Wed, my event was FRiday night. I called on Thurs. morning and they shipped out another size 4 right away for free. I did not get the box until after I had to leave for my event :( but it wasn't RTR's fault as I looked at the tracking and UPS just didn't get it to me although it was at their local distribution center at 8 am that morning! Great service, no hassles to ship a new one. The fit: I was able to wear the 2 pretty comfortably, the tightness just made it a little more sexy. I had great compliments on it, the color and was covered enough yet felt sexy and a little bare. Great dress....true to size. I wear a four in dresses and work out a lot so I can be a bit muscular...but the 2 pulled me through. I think this is true to size. Fun little number. Thank you!

That sleeve is SO much fun on the dance floor. Or even just sashaying to get your drink.
I couldn't tell if I wore the 4 or the 6 because neither dress displayed the size. I tried them both on and still couldn't tell. I put the 4 in my review because you have to put something. In the end, the only difference I could see between the two dresses was that one had up to 1" of the lining showing below the skirt. No good at all. Thankfully, there was that 2nd dress.

I usually opt for a LBD for a special occasion, but I am so glad I went with the blue for last NYE!
LOVED the fit of this dress. Was a little weary because I ordered at the last minute for NYE and really needed it to be perfect. Received so many compliments throughout the night and never saw someone in a similar silhouette or color. The material is a little slinky, but forms well to the body. I'm pretty tall so I was pleasantly surprised it wasn't too short, which is usually my problem. It had just enough length for me to dance comfortably.

Rich deep indigo blue color on this beautiful dress!
Heavier material on this dress than I expected - be aware if you are choosing for a summer event. Hugs the body with some give - beautiful lines both front and back. Very comfortable to wear. Requires a NuBra or strapless/low back. Front is gathered and added some dimension (which works for me - but perhaps something to consider for the more-endowed). The color is such a rich blue/purple hue - makes for a stand-out dress. Made my evening very special.

I had to safety pin the dress (under my armpit) to fit snugly against my body on the side without a sleeve.

Very stylish. Beautiful color. Wore to a red carpet event in Hollywood. Loose and comfy.
ran large in the top- and i am busty. nice, loose fit. does not necessarily show off one's figure, but this is due to the flared arm. great dress for a comfortable, stylish time. Quite chic and in style.

While I loved the purple, I felt like I was drowning in all the fabric. Definitely not as fitted as this picture makes it appear. I returned without wearing.

I am a 34B w/ a 26-27" waist. I ordered a size 4 and 6. The 4 was too big in the bust and the waist was a little snug. Overall I did not wear the dress. I thought it the jersey fabric was too casual for the event that I was attending.

This is a very appealing dress! I received a lot of compliments on it. I am petite so the bust area was not as snug as I wanted it to be, but a little padding in my strapless bra fixed that!

Beautiful Dress
I rented this dress as a second option for an out of town wedding. When I tried it on (size 12) it did not fit me the way that I would have wanted. I believe this dress would look better on a taller person. For me at 5'5", I felt a little "squaty" in this dress. Otherwise the dress fit true to size and I wish it had fit my body shape better because it was absolutely comfortable and gorgeous!

beautiful dress
The dress looked great on. It has some give which made it comfortable to wear. The way it looks in the picture is exactly how the dress looks on. It is a somewhat "clingy" dress so I wasn't able to wear any sort of spanx under it without it being visible. Not a good choice if you want to conceal a belly. I have a large chest and the shirred top helped to minimize that, which was really nice. I got a lot of compliments and felt really pretty in this dress.

I loved the flow of the sleeve. It was fun swishing it while I danced. My friends also rented dresses and it was fun anticipating there arrivals.
I love this dress!! I rented it for my office Christmas Party and got so many compliments. I wore the size 2 and it was perfect. It was very comfortable, I danced all evening. The purple was a fun alternative to black. This was my first rental and it was so easy. I would definitely recommend this dress. Thanks RTR!!

So far, I haven't been disappointed with any of my rentals, and in this dress, I was told that I was a timeless beauty(:
I am usually a 0 or a 2, and in this case the 0 fit me better. The other reviews are correct, the dress runs a bit big, but nothing drastic. The dress was a bit longer than listed for me, it went to about my knee instead of just above it. The reviews and compliments I received on the dress were awesome, and I would definitely recommend the dress for any semi-formal affair!

I always feel elegant and stylish in the dresses I rent from RTR.
I love this dress! It is a vibrant purple and very comfortable to wear. Even the maitre d' complemented me! I usually wear a size 4, but after reading other reviews I ordered a backup dress in a size 2. The 2 fit me better overall.

Rent a size down
This dress is beautiful and fun. It definitely works better on taller people. I rented the 2 and 4 (wore the 2) but wished for the 0. The only problem was that the base of the zipper (which fell right on my hip) puckered pretty substantially so I ended up with my hand on my hip most of the night to cover it.

Beautiful dress
I wore this dress to a cocktail party - I received many compliments. The dress is really fun. I do agree that it may run a LITTLE big - I'm 5'10 and 145 pounds and the size 6 was perfect. The 4 was too small. I usually wear a size 6 or 8 but ordered the 4 because of the reviews. The one thing I didn't like about this dress was the material (100% Rayon). It is not very forgiving. Overall I really liked the dress and the RTR experience. I'll be back.

Mardi Gras hit!
I wore this dress to a Mardi Gras party this past weekend. It was a big hit, I added some purple/gold/green rhinestone earrings and bracelet and I was ready to celebrate in Mardi Gras fashion. This was my first time renting but won't be my last. Dress arrived a bit late the night before (7:30pm) so I got a bit nervous as the event was the following evening. EASY return shipping. Great concept and I will definitely rent again.

First time - will rent again!
This dress was beautiful - I am about 5'2" so it was a little longer on me than I would have liked, but looked very elegant once I had my heels on. The color was very rich, the sleeve very dramatic. This was a very positive experience and I will definitely "rent the runway" again!

Fabulous fit! Very dramatic.
I rented this as my back-up dress, but when I saw the goddess dress I ordered as my first choice I changed my mind. The dress is more purple than royal blue which it appears to be in the photo, but since either color works for me this was not a problem. The fabric is stretchy, but very high quality with a luscious feel and a great swingy drape. This dress makes much more of an impact than you'd think from the photo.

Perfect for curvy women
I wore this dress to a gala, and had compliments from the first second to the last dance. It's elegant, sexy and tasteful- the word "stunning" was mentioned every time. The photo on the site really doesn't do it justice. The dress was slightly shorter than I expected (I'm 5'7") so leaning over meant Spanx exposure - but who cares! You just stand up straight, dance, and enjoy the compliments. I usually wear a 10 and am large-busted, and was able to wear an 8 with no bra and feel appropriately supported - thanks again to some spanx, since the dress requires smooth lines/no lines. I felt like it accentuated my curves (I have hips and a bust line and smaller waist) much more than many other dresses, but did so tastefully - I felt entirely confident in my appearance at the gala.

This dress was so amazing and I felt so good wearing it. The color shape and look of the dress was truly a hit! I really enjoyed the dress and can't wait to rent from RTR again!
I rented this dress for a wedding in Seattle and it was a hit! I got so many compliments. The style and color of this dress is so classy and elegant. This dress is a bit unforgiving so you may need to wear seamless spanks to cinch your waist if it's less than perfect. The dress runs large so order two sizes down. I wore a 6 but I could have worn a 4. This was my first RTR experience and I loved it! I will do it again and again!

I had so much confidence wearing this dress to my friend's wedding in December. I was so excited that I didn't have to wear Spanks! I usually have to, but with this dress I didn't need to at all and it was so comfortable and flattering. Thanks RTR!

Fun dress
I liked this dress a lot. It was a bit short for me for the event I was planning to wear it to so I did send it back. If I were attending a party or a night out on the town, not an issue. But for a more formal event I just couldn't wear something that short. I'm taller and mostly leg so that's my problem. Otherwise, fun dress.

I truly felt like a queen for my special day
I wore this BEAUTIFUL dress for my bridal shower on Aug 19, 2012 and I never felt more beautiful. The dress was true to size (although I ordered a 10 as a back up size, but it was too big :-)). I normally shy away from dresses (very self conscience about my thin calves) but it was really comfortable and I received so many compliments from my family and friends. Truly a confidence booster. Would definitely rent from RTR again!. Thanks so much

Hi, I'm thinking about renting this for a wedding and am wondering what the bustier women are wearing underneath it as far as a bra is concerned? What worked for you?
RTR CustomerFebruary 28, 2013
Hi Keisha! You should be perfectly fine in a strapless bra with this dress!

Pretty color
I loved the color and the style, but the ruffle/bunching along the top was too much. I'm between a 10 and 12 (12 hips, 10 bust) and the size 10 was still too loose for my liking.
