I'm still trying to drop the last of my baby weight and was so happy this dress was very forgiving. I wore it to my work Christmas party and received many great comments. This sealed the deal on never buying a department store dress ever again.

Downtown Engagement Session!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented this dress for our "downtown" engagement session. The fabric of this dress was EXACTLY what I was looking for. Wore plum suede pumps with it to bring in a punch of color. Overall size was larger than I expected (I am normally a 6 or 8). Little too short for sitting down photos for me (5'8") but a great deal for such a unique "classic" dress.

Got many compliments on the dress!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I ordered an 8 and a size 6 as the backup because of people saying it ran large. However, if you're like me and have a booty it definitely makes the dress shorter. I ended up wearing the 8 and when I sat down I had to constantly keep pulling the dress down. It definitely fit but I think going to a 10 might have given me a little extra length. Overall I loved the dress and it was perfect for the occasion!

Perfect Dress

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for 8 days because I had two different events to wear it to. I wore the larger size (6) for a performance of the Nutcracker that my daughter was dancing in. I wore the smaller one (4) for my office Christmas party. Both fit fine but the 4 was a bit shorter/sexier. The photo is of the 6. There is an attached nude slip underneath and it's shorter than the lace. That means that you show quite a bit of leg. Fine standing up but when I sat down I was glad I had my napkin over my lap at dinner and my shawl in the theater.

I wore the same designer this summer in the teal and I loved it soI rented it again but in the black. so comfortable and classy! It does run big, I wore the six because it was a little bit looser in the shoulders for me but a little too loose in the waste but it still looks flattering and I paired it with a sexy pointed toe red heels and red necklace! Would rent again!

Classy dress!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
I am normally between a size 4 and 6. I tried on the size 4 first, and it fit perfectly. However, since this dress is essentially a nude spaghetti strap dress with a black, lacy, sleeved sheath, I opted to wear the 6 to allow more movement and to keep it from riding up so much. This is NOT a warm dress. I paired the dress with a hair fascinator as a necklace would have snagged the neckline too much. I wore this dress on a date to a high-end, luxury, 5-star resort and spa restaurant and I felt completely comfortable.

This was my first experience with R2R and I was so pleased!

Size worn: 4
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was awesome! I ordered two sizes to try: my usual size 6 and a 4 since previous reviews mentioned the dress ran a bit large. I wound up wearing the 4 because it hugged my curves a bit better. I could have worn the 6 but I probably would have belted it to give it some more shape. I'd recommend this dress to anyone and would definitely wear it again if I could!

Simple yet elegant

Size worn: 12
Rented for: Party
The dress fit generally well and the lace was beautiful/comfortable. The lining of the dress tended to ride-up, so I felt I was constantly readjusting all night. I was surprised at how short the dress was, being that I'm only 5'5". I felt a little restricted with my movements at times and needed to make sure I was covered up when sitting down and standing up. The dress may not have been the best choice for a family gathering, but I would consider ordering again for a wedding or another occasion where the shorter length was more appropriate.

I am a wedding photographer and was shooting a close friends' wedding, as well as attending as a guest, so I wanted to wear something comfortable I could move in but also looked nice for the day. I ordered three different dresses with different sizes, as I can fluctuate in sizing between designers - and this one was my absolute favorite! I received so many compliments, it was super comfortable and not too tight. I even threw on some cute heels after I was done shooting photos and danced all night. I will definitely be renting this dress again!

This was a great little black dress for New Year's Eve. It wasn't the typical LBD, and I loved that.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for New Years Eve and loved it. This dress fit me so well, and I got a lot of compliments. I listened to the other reviews, which said that the dress ran large, so I opted to get sizes 4 and 6. Both fit but the 6 was a little looser in the arms, which was better for moving around in. I would definitely suggest getting your normal size plus one size down just in case. I will definitely rent again!

Wonderful fitting dress. You will not be disappointed. Lots of compliments on this piece.

Size worn: 6

Perfect dress for a winter wedding! No tights needed. This dress is super comfy. Just the right length, hitting mid thigh. Runs slightly big, as I would normally wear a size 8-10 in most dresses. It's forgiving in the mid section, but hugs the bust arms and butt. You will not be disappointed if you choose this dress.

Little Black Dress For Party

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I wore this to a friend's engagement party. It's conservative for a black dress but still fun. I really liked the dress but likely won't rent it again. I couldn't get it to fit well. The 6 was a great fit (even a tad tight) in the shoulders and arms area but quite loose around the belly. I have smaller shoulders/arms so this isn't where most dresses are tight on me. The 8 was way too big.

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small

Dress was a lot shorter than I expected. It was above mid thigh and in the pictures looked like mid thigh and longer on most girls. Maybe it was just the set I got. The sleeves were a lot tighter that I would have liked. Probably should have gotten a 10/12 and not a 8/10

Great Lace Dress

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The dress was a true shift dress. I loved the lace on this dress but it didn't fit as well as I though it would. When it wasn't belted, it seemed to add pounds because it was baggier in the stomach area. I also felt like it was super short and had to be super careful when bending over. I wouldn't rent this dress again but love Rent the Runway and will be coming back!

I rented this dress for NYE and it was absolutely perfect.

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I read a ton of reviews before renting this dress and all were very spot on. I am short so the dress was not short on me at all and was the perfect length. I would say that this dress does run a little big. I ended up wearing the 8 but the 6 did not get to me in time. I tried on the 6 when I got it and it fit perfect. The dress was very comfortable. The cream under part of the dress did ride up a little bit and I found myself having to pull it down every so often but it was not that big of a deal. Also, normal bras can be work with this dress which is always a plus. I would definitely recommend renting this dress.

I received the dress the night I was going to wear it, so I didn't have a lot of time to play with the fit of the dress. Overall it was super cute - I decided to belt it to give it a little bit more shape on my body. The dress was longer than I expected on my frame; the belt helped with that as well.

He stood me up... on Valentine's Day. But I rocked the dress anyway.

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
He told me, "You're going to want to rent a sexy dress for this." So I chose this dress for a Valentine's Day evening dinner at a surprise location, followed by tickets to see Harry Connick, Jr. in our favorite new venue, all after a day of fun together playing golf and hitting a spa. Long story short, he stood me up, disappearing days before and not getting in touch with me for days after. Amazing friends and family swooped in, and by the end of the day, I'd been to a spa for a day, had my hair done, and had a dinner date set up by/with two of my best friends at a gorgeous hotel. So I got to wear this gorgeous dress after all. This extremely elegant and classy-with-bite dress is meant to be a sheath, so it's supposed to be roomy and "suggest" your shape, but not hold it. That said, if you want it more fitted, go a size down. Otherwise, the sizing was perfect. The length was mid-thigh, great for showing off sexy gams. Sitting at the bar was a bit of an adventure with the length, but at the table, I was comfortable. If you plan on dancing in this, don't to the YMCA (unless that's your thing). I paired the dress with warm-colored pearl earrings, a matching pearl bracelet, and no necklace - the dress is sexy enough, so you'll just go a little overboard with too much else. I borrowed a pair of Aldo nude wedge peep-toes to tie it up and make my legs look extra long, and carried a black clutch. I received TONS of compliments - as always with RTR dresses - and I absolutely plan on wearing this one again. This dress made me feel beautiful, sexy, and wanted on a day where I really needed it most. Thank you, RTR. You rocked my world again.

Rented this dress for a winter bridal shower and it was the perfect choice. It runs slightly big so I would get your regular size and one below it. I chose to wear the larger size of the two and belt it to give it some shape. I highly recommend having a black belt on hand when renting this dress! It was the perfect length for me ( at 5'2 ). All in all, another great experience with RTR. And you can't beat the price!

This dress is GORGEOUS and super flattering! I planned on wearing the size 4 and ended up wearing the 2. I had a baby 4 months ago and this dress is a little bigger in the mid-section - which made me feel great and not self-conscious about my tummy all night. I received tons of compliments and will most likely rent again. This was my first time renting and overall a great experience.

***Please keep in mind when thinking about ordering this dress, it is a SHIFT dress. It is not meant to fit tight. With that said, many of the reviews I read before I rented this one had pictures of girls with belts to make it tighter or statements that it ran large.. Personally, I found it was true to size and not form fitting. It was flattering in that it fit tighter in the right areas, but you still feel comfortable enough to eat and dance. It's not too short, but i'm only 5'0.** I rented this one completely last minute when my first one did not work out--- This was a very simple, classy dress that worked perfectly for a conservative wedding. I will definitely rent from RTR again :)

Wore this dress for a Chicago wedding on a cold April day and it worked great. It is a true shift as everyone else mentions so it was a little baggy around the waist. I am usually in between a 2 and a 4 and the 2 worked great with room to spare. I'm 5'3" so the length was also fine for me. I would rent this dress again.

I ordered a size 0 and 2 and the 0 fit me better but the strap wasn't connected to the lace on one side. Sent it back to RR with a photo of the damage and there wasn't any charge. I feel the dress is very elegant with the lace and felt comfortable wearing a shorter dress at the event even though some women choose to wear a floor length dress. Personally I am slender with a smaller bust so did feel like that I looked too small for the dress but once moving around you couldn't tell. I highly recommend this dress for a sorts of occupations, I feel it is very flattering for all body types. Enjoy!

Perfect dress for a classy rooftop wedding in DC! Fit the cocktail attire but took it up a notch.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was perfect for an upscale spring wedding I was attending. I generally wear a 4 or 6 depending on the fit and I ended up going with the size 4 in this dress as the 6 was just a little too loose all over. Keep in mind when considering renting that this is a shift dress so it is meant to have a boxier fit. For me, the shoulders and hips were form fitting but the dress was pretty loose around the middle. It looked nice on its own but I decided to belt it to give it a little more figure (someone with less of a booty might have a different experience!). The belt worked great but did require some adjustments throughout the night, otherwise it started to bunch. The pattern is amazing and very elegant; I'd definitely rent this dress again.
