Great dress. Wore to a ceremony for a wedding.
Runs a bit large. Could either wear a little big or belt it. Super Cute.

The dress was just exactly what I had hoped it would be!
I was worried it would be too tight in the hips so I order to my hip size even though I often order to my bust size for dresses, and it worked great!

I wore this for a formal dinner dance
I thought it ran very large-- I wear an 8 typically and I wore a 6 in this, and really probably could've worn a 4- I am so glad I listened to the other reviews and sized down for the back-up! I got compliments on it all night and absolutely love the dress.

Great options
Loved the dress and extremely comfortable! Only issue was it looked a little boxy, a belt would helps. Runs large go down at least one size.

Classy & Sophisticated! Earned me so many compliments!
This dress is beautiful! Classy, sophisticated, and modest, but sexy! It fit true to size for me. A little shorter than I would normally choose, but it was really perfect for my husband's holiday work party. It was slightly loose in the arm pit areas, but it still worked out great. I loved that this dress is forgiving in the midsection! I would recommend this dress and #renttherunway to all my girlfriends! #robertorodriguez

No structure. Too big.
I should have sized down based on the reviews. I'm a size 4 and tried a 4 and it was loose with no structure at all. I love a good shift dress, but this just was not flattering. Looked like a paper bag on me. The dress itself is pretty, just not on! This was my back up dress anyway, so it was not worn.

This was a beautiful dress but it just wasn't for me. I found it very short and made my already large bust look larger. It gave my confidence a bit of a shake...

Classic dress
This dress fit well, is a great color, and is gorgeous on. As others noted it does run slightly short for a wedding though. Weddings include a lot of dancing and you can't really throw your arms up in this dress! Also, there were a lot of runs/strings hanging from the lace of the dress being worn in the back, which from far away you couldn't see, but it didn't look nice up close. Overall, this was a nice experience for my first time renting.

I wore this dress when I was over 20 weeks pregnant. Since it runs large around the waist it worked perfectly.

My order came super fast and it quickly went from my backup option to the only option!
I wore this dress for my best friends rehearsal dinner and it worked perfectly! I originally ordered it as my backup, but as soon as I put it on I knew it was the only choice! It is definitely on the shorter side but it only made my legs look longer and skinnier, no complaints with that! It has a great, comfy fit and I received tons of compliments. I even had people reach out to me after I posted pictures asking where I got it! I would definitely wear this dress again and was sad to send it back.

Just the right amount if sexy for an evening wedding.
The dress was so comfortable, but very classy. It was also just the right length for my 5'3" height.

Classy and flirty
I got this dress for my birthday and had it sent to my boyfriends place where he is stationed in Kodiak, Alaska when I was visiting. The dress was beautiful but i didn't wear it out since no one dresses up in Kodiak, Alaska. He still thought I looked pretty. I was really impressed I could have it sent to the island and getting back was a wild goose chase finding a UPS truck but I'm sure if I had any troubles RTR would've stepped up because their customer service is the best!

So many compliments. Everyone loved the dress.
The dress definitely runs large. I normally wear an 8-10 and ended up wearing the 6. Thank goodness for a of the reviews that steered me in the right direction! Very comfortable to wear all night.

Weekend Wedding.
I rented the 6 and the 8. I ended wearing the 8 because the 6 was a little too short. The length ended up being perfect, I definitely wouldn't have wanted anything shorter. Because there is no zipper (pull over head), I wouldn't say it's the most flattering dress. However, it was perfect for a wedding and very comfortable, I wasn't constantly worried that my stomach was sticking out or if my butt looked too big. Was able to dance and enjoy the night. I received a lot of compliments on it.

The fit of this dress was great! It was super comfy and made me feel sexy! My hubby loved it too!
12 fit perfect. I was a bit worried as I ordered before I knew I was pregnant. I wore this 2 mos pregnant and it was fabulous. The material was super comfy and I wore it all night! Great for girls who are larger on top. It was short on me and I'm 5'. I thought it was a sexy length. I wore it with black stiletto heel booties.

This was very pretty on the hanger, though I didn't end up wearing it.
Unfortunately, with my athletic frame and size this dress ended up looking a little frumpy.

Can't get enough!
This is my second time renting this dress (the first I ended up changing shortly after because I was over-dressed - long story ;)) anyway, I would buy this dress if I could. I absolutely love it. It is comfortable, versatile and gives off such a classy look. Do not hesitate to rent this dress!

Beautiful & Comfortable
This dress runs very large. I usually wear a 0 or 2 but I had a baby four months ago so I ordered the 2 and the 4 figuring I had to account for the extra pounds I have post-baby. I tried the 2 on first and never even took the 4 out of the bag because the 2 was gigantic. The wedding we were attending was the next day and out of state but RTR came to the rescue and overnighted the 0 to my hotel. I'm so happy they were able to because the dress is really pretty and comfortable. I'm 5'5" and the 0 was a little short but not bad. I loved this dress and love RTR's customer service.

Comfortable & classy
This dress is SO comfortable! I was sent this dress as a replacement because the dress I ordered arrived with a rip. My stylist was right on with this pick. It's perfect! I was a little concerned about the sleeves, I thought they may be tight but they aren't at all. I normally wear a size 10 & the 10 in this dress has a little more room in it than I'm used to wearing but it totally works. Thank you RTR for your amazing customer service!! #classy #comfortable #nighttoremember

The dress was a great accent and it wasn't to busy or formal for the occasion.
It really was a great dress for an occasion that isn't too fancy. I got many compliments! I wore a size four and I probably could have fit in a two so it was a bit roomy for me. Besides that, it was a success and I'm glad I rented it!

Very comfortable dress!
Dress runs very large & I could've ordered a size 6, instead of the 8 & 10. The dress did smell a bit from the dry cleaners, but nothing a little airing out didn't take care of. LOVED wearing the dress and will certainly rent again. Received many compliments and was great to be able to dance & eat without worrying about anything.

Easy and flattering
I actually didn't wear this dress because my husband liked the other dress I rented but this fit really well. I rented both the 4 and the 2 based on reviews but the 4 was perfect for me (normally I'm a size 6 sometimes a 4). Good choice since it is not super fitted so it should fit most body types well I have a large behind and thighs but this skimmed everything without clinging or looking baggy. I would rent this again and actually wear it next time.

I couldn't keep my eyes off of this dress when I found it!! I had to rent it. As all the other reviews it does run big. I normally wear a size 8 and ended up wearing a size 4 thanks to my lovely stylist. I wore the dress to a wedding and received so many compliments. I highly recommend this dress to anyone just make sure you order a size smaller and don't forget to take advantage of the second size.

Beautiful dress. This was my first RTR experience and I couldn't have been more happy!
I didn't end up wearing the dress for the wedding (I ended up finding another dress). But the fit was great. If it were any other dress, I probably would have gotten a 10 and a 12 back up.. but after reading the reviews, multiple woman mentioned getting a size smaller... and its a good thing i listened! The 8 fit me much better than the 10. It ran a little short (one of the reasons I didn't wear it... i wanted to dance comfortable without showing anything that doesn't need to be seen!) There also wasn't any definition. I got some curves, but this dress didn't really highlight them. However, It was extremely comfortable and classic looking.From this experience, I will definitely be using RTR again! Thanks!

I loved this dress! As other reviewers stated, this dress runs slightly large. However, it is also short. I'm 5" and it fit me fine, but anyone over 5' 4" might find it short. I also recommend a belt for added shape. Would rent again!
