I wore this for a formal dinner dance

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
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.

Classy & Sophisticated! Earned me so many compliments!

Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
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

Classic dress

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
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 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.

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!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Large

This dress does run large. I chose the 12 over the 10 as I felt it would be easier to dance in, but could have worn the 10 and still have been comfortable. I am short so the dress hit a couple inches above the knee as opposed to the thigh as seen on model. My first RTR experience and will certainly rent again!

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.

Beautiful & Comfortable

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Large

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.

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

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!

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.

I ordered a size 10 (my usual size) and an 8 for backup. I chose to wear the size 8. The 10 was a little too baggy, but perfect length. The 8 fit me better but was a little short- I couldn't lift my arms over my head! But it is a very pretty dress.

I was sent this dress is a replacement dress for my engagement party. It was my first time needing something overnighted and rtr customer service was amazing. I had ordered this style dress in the past (in pink) and knew the size was true to size/a little big. Pros: good for fall and winter. It would have looks good with tights. Since it is a shift dress I wouldn't have minded it with a belt to show my waist, but didn't have one that matched. Not too short.

I ordered this dress for my sister's rehearsal dinner. Based on everyone else's reviews, I ordered smaller sizes and I'm glad I did! Had I gone any bigger, the dress would have been a sack! Very flattering, super forgiving, and it was a great length too. Would recommend to anyone looking for a classic look for a formal event.

RTR made wearing designer dresses possible! I will never buy another dress. Rtr is the way to go!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is so comfortable. I wore it for my cousin's wedding in October. It was a beautiful dress, however, I gave it a 4 since it doesn't really pop or it's not as gorgeous on me as on the other reviews I read. Additionally, I ordered a size 4 and a size 6 because I am 10 weeks pregnant and have a little bit of a baby bump. For some reason, the size 6 dress I received is smaller than the size 4 dress so I ended up wearing the size 6 dress. This dress truly runs large just like what the other reviewers said so if you are not pregnant, order your true size and one size smaller. Overall, it was a comfortable dress and it looks beautiful on pictures. I would definitely rent at RTR again. :)

I was happy that the 4 fit me much better than the 6. I felt the 6 made me look more frumpier while the 4 fitted just right . The dress is short so you have to be careful. Overall I loved this dress and I wish I could afford it at retail price.

Glad I read the reviews before deciding on sizes! Definitely runs large. I'm 5'6" and normally wear a size 8, and I felt like I was wearing a bag in the size 8. This is very unusual since I have a large bust (34 DDD) and cant usually wear smaller sizes because they don't fit there. It is a little short, but I didn't have to reach up to any high shelves or anything so it wasn't a problem. Overall it's a great dress! It was really comfortable and perfect for my friends birthday party in NY. It's flattering and I got a couple complements from very fashionista-type people.

October Wedding Event

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Really liked this dress! Pros: Perfect to wear with simply black heels. Loved the scalloped lace on the bottom and sleeves! Got many compliments! Cons: I am pretty tall and I expected it to be short (like every other dress I have worn). It was only uncomfortably short when sitting down, which I only did during the ceremony and dinner. *Thank goodness for tableclothes to cover up*. The size 10 was a little baggy around the midsection, but wasnt bad. A size 8 would have fit better but would have been WAY too short. I was actually glad for the extra material around the waist when on the dance floor.

The dress does run a bit larger but I didn't want something that was too form fitting; I was incredibly happy with it.

I would absolutely recommend this dress to others and will keep it in mind for myself in the future.

Super cute feminine dress

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Loved this dress for a late fall wedding since it had 3/4 length sleeves. The lace was delicate and pretty and the dress was cute with gold accessories. I didn't like how the waist wasn't really fitted -- it kind of reminded me of wearing a potato sack. But maybe just my body -- I have a small chest but a curvier lower half. Would definitely recommend though.

I usually wear a 4, however the 6 was a perfect fit. When my first dress did not work, the lady from RTR was so helpful and took her time to help me find exactly what I was looking for.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress was nice and worked well for the occasion. I couldn't tell much of a difference between the size 2 and 4, so I went with the 4 for comfort. The length was shorter than I normally wear (not a problem I usually have at barely 5'2".) The sleeves were a bit itchy. Nonetheless, I would recommend this dress.

Great dress but a little short if you are tall

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
The dress is beautiful. I normally wear an 8 and I definitely could have worn the 6 so it runs a little big. The only complaint I have is that it is definitely short and there is no stretch in the dress so if you bend over its coming up. It looked very sexy and cute and I got a lot of compliments on it, I just had to be aware of what I was doing all night because of the length. I am 5'10" though so for someone shorter it probably wouldn't be a problem. I still liked the dress though and was happy with the overall look.

Gorgeous Detail

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
The delicate lace paired on top of the nude underlay made this dress modest with a romantic flair. My boyfriend's words were, "Stunning!". I ordered the 2 and 4 originally for the wedding and they were too big! I called RTR and they overnighted me a 0 and it arrived around 11am the next day! Thank goodness! I loved the dress, it was easy to dance in and comfortable to wear. The only downsize was a small tear in the armpit, but it wasn't noticeable unless I raised my arms (reason for 4 stars). I would definitely recommend this dress!

Beautiful! Perfect dress for fall wedding

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
Loved this dress! The length was perfect, not nearly as short as it looks on the model. The lace overlay is longer than the lining so it's a cute way to show a little leg and stay conservative. This was my first RTR so I ordered sizes conservatively. I was worried about the fit in the hips but should have listened to the reviews and ordered a 4 and 6, instead of an 8. It fits generously through the waist and hips- not snug like a traditional shift. Great, classic, easy fitting dress! Hard to go wrong with this one.
