The fit and material are awesome!
I really like this brand. The dresses are well made and the materials are heavy. This dress had a little glittery look to it that is not made noticeable in the picture. It is a really nice piece. I recommend it. It fits like a glove. It is very flattering! Also the design is very eye catching :D

Warm, curve-hugging, and beautifully dynamic.
I wore this dress to my senior year homecoming. I was very skeptical at first because I am tiny (barely 5 feet tall), so bodycon dresses usually don't work out for me. Boy, was I wrong. I got SO many compliments that night, and I was seriously considering just taking the fees and keeping the dress forever. It's beautiful, and I miss this dress more than anything else in the world. If you're on the fence about this dress - get it. You won't regret it.

Gorgeous dress
This dress was even prettier in person! The red embroidery is actually a metallic red. It really makes the dress shine and stand out. I ordered an XS, with small as my backup. They both fit great, and I could have worn either, but the small seemed to be a little newer-looking, so I went with it. They both fit, though, and both looked beautiful. Absolutely gorgeous, unique, comfortable, and sexy. Would rent again for the right occasion.

You WILL make a statement with this sexy AF dress!
To say all eyes will be on you is an understatement. This dress hugs every curve and is best worn backwards. The material is thick without feeling restricting. It was very comfortable. Best comment of the night "Girl you and that dress are flawless!"

This one's a sexy little number.
This dress is VERY form-fitting! But the material is plenty thick and I loved the shimmery look of the red detail. It rode up a little when I walked but it wasn't too bad. I wore it backwards as some other RTRers suggested. It actually looks better with the scoop neck, in my opinion. I got quite a few compliments. I really liked this rental.

Wear it backwards!
This dress was gorgeous! It was snug but that helped hold everything together! It was a thick material but I wore it in 90 degree heat and it wasn't an issue but it would be good for winter wear. I wore it backwards because then the neckline allows for some cleavage!

Tight, sexy dress!!!
I decided to rent this one last minute for a party- and I'm so glad I did! Like others who've worn this RVN before I wore it backwards. It fit like a glove and I felt so sexy in it. The material is really thick and sucks everything in! Wished I owned this one!!!

Eye Catching!
This was my first rent the runway experience, and I was very nervous that the dress wouldn't fit or it wouldn't cover up my rear. I carry most of my weight in my hips and it is always hard for me to find a dress that I feel good in. This dress blew those feelings out of the water! I felt so good about myself and received many compliments. Will definitely recommend RTR to all my friends!

Perfect to wear for my rehearsal dinner!
The dress was SO comfortable. It made me feel very pretty. The fabric was thick but stretchy, which helped keep it in place. I was concerned that it might start to ride up, but no problem whatsoever!

Could flatter anyone!
Can't say enough for how fabulous this dress made me feel! While it does hug every curve, it also holds each of those curves in their place. This allowed me to dance and have a great time without having to worry about adjusting the dress much at all, even over my large behind. It's has a great sparkle to it, making it even more spectacular for a simple body-con dress! Totally works with the America theme, too!

So much fun!
I loved this dress!! I ordered the small and the medium, either would have worked but the medium was a little bit comfier and the fit looked exactly the same. I didn't have any issues with the dress riding up. The material is a little thicker than you expect but I wore it on a hot day and was just fine. It was great because I felt like I stood out, but in a classy way, it was just so fun to wear.

Hot Body Con Dress
I got this dress as a backup when the alternate size of my first choice was unavailable. It took some work to get into and it's quite tight so the dress sucked everything in nicely but it was too body conscious and short for my event (husband's work party). I also found the design at the front crotch to be distracting. I saw a devil's head in the pattern and then couldn't unsee it. This dress would be perfect for a hot date or girl's weekend and is certainly a head-turner!

Both dresses came on time and in perfect condition!
Loved this dress. Thick material and stretchy. It really holds your body in nice and is super comfortable. I went with the small because the medium was just as tight just more material. The red detailing is actually kind of shimmery which is really pretty! Got so many compliments on this dress! Would definitely rent it again :)

I didn't end up wearing this dress but it was cute. Warning, it is VERY thick
This is not the dress for a summer event, even though it is very cute. It isn't too short but still shows off your curves. There is a little bit of a glitter in the thread of the dress

Wear it backwards!
It's a stretchy material so I ended up wearing the smaller of my two sizes because many people wearing it had stretched it out. I highly recommend wearing it backwards so it's not so close to your neck, but that's just a personal preference. It didn't ride up and was a heavy enough material to smooth everything out and was extremely flattering. Endless compliments all night from girls and guys alike.

First RTR, I wore this dress for a holiday party. It was thicker material but worked out great.
It fit well and hugged all the right spots. It was a really thick material but worked out well for a cooler night here in FL. Shipped on time came in great condition, would rent again.

The pattern is beautiful but the material is very thick and very tight.
From other reviews the dress looked like it would be flattering on most body types. This was not the case for me sadly. The material is very thick and bunches up around the waist when you sit down. I am short with a shirt torso and the dress came almost down to my knees, not mini length like on the model. I am fairly thin with a somewhat athletic build but this dress made me look bulky. I would not rent it again or recommend it to anyone who doesn't have a very long waist. But I did still manage to get a couple of compliments.

I haven't worn this yet, I bought it for Valentine's Day while RTR is doing their clearance sales.
I just wanted to let others know how it fits. I'm 5'2", 122 lbs, 34B bra, pear shaped, normal-ish length torso with short legs. I can wear a S or XS in some brands, but not usually for high end dresses. If that sounds like you, size up. The M fits me like a glove, and hits just above my knees (short legs). It bunches at the waist, which shows a little pooch if I don't wear spanx. The back seems high enough for a strapless bra, but I didn't honestly try yet and don't know that I'll need one. The dress is nice and stretchy yet sturdy. The red has a sparkle to it, which is delightful. Looks even better than the pictures, and the white was still nice and white. Very pleased. Can't wait to see my fiancé's eyes pop out of his head when we go out for dinner.

Beautiful but wasn't able to wear it
Unfortunately I wasn't able to wear this dress because it was far too cold. However, it did run small and I felt like it hugged me in all the wrong places. Judging by the other reviews, if you're small in stature or have nice curves, it could really work! I think my build didn't match the dress, which isn't the dress's fault :) (5'7", 150lbs, ordered L and M)

One of my favorite dresses! Received compliments all night. Love RVN!
Tight/stretchy material. Feels tight when putting first on, but becomes form fitting once completely on. Very comfortable. Long enough that it wasn't riding up all night. Very flattering. Definitely recommend to anyone!

Great fit! Very form fitting, so I would order a size up from your usual size for comfort. Thick material, a little hot to dance in.

Back up dress, loved it
This dress was great. The pattern is stunning. Would be great for a holiday party as the red is slightly sparkly. I went with my other dress but also loved this one. It is a super think material so it definitely hugged all my curves, if that's what you're going for, get this dress!

Look great standing, not sitting
Like other reviewers have commented this dress is wonderful for hiding flaws (but not so wonderful that you won't need Spanx or something similar). It is a showstopper for curvy ladies who want to make a statement but you need to have great posture and be prepared to stand most of the night. Once you sit the design actually calls attention to problem areas due to the natural bunching that happens to dresses when ladies sit. Between the time that I ordered my RTR and it arrived I had a medical emergency that meant I was going to have to attend this event in a wheelchair. Due to that constraint and the unique design of the dress I could not wear it. But it is lovely and if I make a full recovery I may rent it again.

Unfortunately, I didn't care for the style and ended up not wearing for my Christmas party.
The design of the dress was not as cute as I had hoped, and the fit (S) was snug but long for me through the middle so there was extra fabric through the waist, super disappointed.

Too tight for a family wedding, but good for a holiday party
I liked this dress, but ended up wearing a different one. I needed a dress for a family wedding, so I opted for a looser/slightly more conservative dress. I would rent this one again if it were for a holiday party with my friends. I liked that I could wear a normal bra with it. It was pretty long on me, and very tight, which I expected. (It went all the way down to my knee caps, which looked weird. I didn't like how it looked folded under.) I absolutely could not tell the difference between a small and a medium, so I don't even know which size fit me better. Next time, I would probably get the XS and S. I'm 5'1 and athletic (aka broad shoulders, big thighs), so sometimes dresses that fit me on the bottom are too tight across the shoulders, but this one worked.

I wore this for my 24th birthday party.
I LOVE THIS DRESS! I was so sad I couldn't keep it. It fits like a glove. I am pretty tall so it was bit short on me so I wouldn't wear this to a family event. It does run a bit tight so I went with the large instead of the medium. I also wore it backwards to have a scoop neckline. I would definitely recommend this dress.

I got compliments all night on my dress and it was perfect for a holiday party!
It's a very fitted dress, but the small was still a little big for me (I think because I'm 5'3 aka short). At 5'3, 120 lbs, I think the XS would have been better bc I had a lot of extra fabric that I kept trying to pull up and down to make the dress fit perfectly. Definitely put your makeup on beforehand because it's a tight squeeze getting it over your head and I agree with others that it looks great worn backwards too.

Overall very flattering and comfortable.
The fabric was very thick and stretchy so it was very form fitting and flattering. I loved that there was a bit of shimmer to it but not too much. I wore it backwards to show a bit more chest but it was very pretty both ways!
