This dress would be great for more than just weddings!
I loved this dress! It is definitely a tight fit, but I rented to my regular dress size and worked out fine. The fabric is really thick which helps create a nice body shape. I would not recommending renting for a hot summer day event because it did get a little warm at times. This dress would be great for weddings, cocktail parties, etc.

Tight but comfortable
The texture kind of feels like spanx. I loved this dress, and it was definitely one of my favorites from RTR!

Fun, not so flattering..
Ok, so I'm about 5'5", 135 pounds. I've had two kids, I don't have a perfect body but it's not awful either. This dress was fun and I felt like I looked good when I looked in the mirror but I think the cap sleeves accentuated the fact that my arms aren't as slender as I would like. I also felt like I was wearing Spanx, but if you're not posing perfectly, you're still gonna see your pouch if you've got one. Just keeping it real for the public's benefit. You're welcome for posting my generally unflattering photo! ;)

Awesome dress to die for! Super form fitting and very comfortable
Dress fits true to size. Got me tons of compliments. Loved it so much that Wish I could keep it. Super original design on bodice of dress. Wore this to my sister's wedding rehearsal dinner which called for cocktail dress attire. Five stars!!!

Perfect dress for my school's gold-themed homecoming!
I am 5'8" and about 125lbs. I ordered the XS and S and ended up wearing the XS. It fit perfectly! I felt so confident in this dress. The material is very thick and sturdy, so it doesn't ride up too badly. It hugs in your tummy and other problem areas while making your butt look A+. The only issue was that it came with some white dust marks that wouldn't go away with water, but this wasn't really a problem for me, I think it was just because of having been in storage. I really recommend this dress!

I felt stunning
I really liked this dress. It was very stretchy, but I felt it ran small. I ordered an xs and s, but with I would have ordered a s and m for sizes. I still felt beautiful.

New heals,beautiful dress I felt amazing!!! Perfect dress for our very snowy dinner date!
I loved this dress! I have a small figure to begin with so this dress was a perfect match for me. Dress runs small that's why I rented it. Very form fitting, and I mean a real body hugger. I was able to get into the dress but needed help getting out. Dress is made of stretchy heavy material so it does give. There is no zipper so no deodorant or makeup before putting dress on over your head unless you want to try and clean off makeup n deodorant streaks. I was very pleased with this stunning eye catching dress, didn't want to return it!

Looked great for a rehearsal dinner!
Loved the dress and hugged in all the right places. Definitely a stretchy almost a thick spandex-like material, so felt a bit snug, but it kept my tummy sucked it and nobody thought it looked too tight so it worked. If you're uncomfortable with something a little tight though you may want to size up. Was on the short side but wore tights so it worked. Overall it was a great dress for the occasion!

This dress is really well made but the material is very thick, maybe not great for the summer months. The dress is very tight and form fitting.

How comfortable the dress was!
Such a great dress! The fabric was thick and the dress overall was very form fitting. I got a medium and large and ended up wearing the medium. The fit was roughly the same, there was a little more room in the large, but from the thick fabric being tight, it didn't make a huge difference. The large, of course, was also a bit longer than the medium. Overall great dress! I got so many compliments and felt great all night!

Great dress and lots of compliments!
This dress is VERY tight. I am wearing the medium and I had to squeeze into it. But...it also kind of keeps your whole body sucked in and tight. I got lots of compliments.

Very pretty design and great fabric
This dress is very pretty with the beautiful gold design. The dress is very tight but the fabric is thick and great quality. The only thing was that I did feel slightly uncomfortable wearing it to the church ceremony of the wedding I attended. I wore a shawl around and that worked well. The dress does rise up and I was pulling it down a lot, but it was a great dress and I would recommend it !!!

Nice dress!
Dress was great for the price. This is a fun club dress but also elegant enough for a sophisticated night like a wedding. It had a tendency to ride up when dancing but overall was a nice find and recommendable. I was comfy in the dress and it was true to size.

This really does feel like you're wearing a super fancy spanx dress! It was tight but flattering and very fancy. Beware of the armhole shape if you're like me and don't have the skinniest arms. But it's a beautiful, sophisticaed dress for sure.

Really comfortable fit , because it is super stretchy
I actually rented a plain purple dress for my friends wedding, and the day before the dress was supposed to arrive, RTR told me that the dress was ruined and they would like to give me any dress at any price. And OVER NIGHTED!! I was so excited yet very stressed to pick a dress so quickly. I told the lady that was helping me that i was concerned about the fit of dress #1. She told me that she would send my second choice in one size up just in case. Thank god she did because dress # 1 was too tight! I think I liked the quality of the RVN dress more anyway! This dress had no zipper and it felt like dress was made out of spanx material. It was so comphy, it allowed me to dance up a storm and eat as much as I want! Thanks to Rent the runway for another great dress!!

Very form fitting
I wore this dress to two different dinner parties. It is very form fitting and did tend to ride up throughout the evening. I usually wear a size 6 and the medium fit perfectly. The cap sleeves were snug under my arms. It was ok on me, but it could be a problem for some body types. Overall I really liked this dress as it looks classy and classic. One friend even said I looked like a model.

Unique and sophisticated...loved the fit!
This dress made me feel like I was wearing Batman's bat-suit, but in a good way! No need for spanx with this dress...the material is comfortable, but holds everything in the right place. It didn't ride up as other dresses that are this form fitting usually do. I was very pleased overall. I got many compliments, too! Runs a little small for my taste. Medium worked well for me.

Perfect holiday dress, I didn't want to send it back!
I loved everything about this dress. It does run small. I am about 5'8, 130 lbs and it was a bit tight however not in an unflattering way. It really is beautiful and fits like a herve leger dress. I received compliments all night long. My only complaint, albeit very minor, was that it tended to inch up through the night. This might be b/c the medium would have perhaps been a better fit for me. Overall I am so happy I rented it and would definately rent again.

It was a great dress--sexy without overly revealing.
Difficult to put it on and off since there is no zipper. But, once you have it on, its very comfortable. The dress rises up a little so you need to pull down the sides to keep it wrinkle free.

I felt it did run small, so I ended up with the large. The length was perfect and the detailing was beautiful.

This dress super comfortable with gorgeous details!
Because I read that the dress runs small, I started with the large. It was comfortable and flattering so I wore it and didn't try on the medium. It's possible that the medium could have fit but I liked that the large hugged my curves without looking tight. The fabric is amazing. Not a chintzy thin knit, this knit has great weight and gives you coverage. I loved the embroidery. It was detailed, flattering and sparkly without being too flashy. I wish I owned this dress!

Beautiful Dress...once you get it over your head. :)
The dress is beautiful but there's no give at all....just be aware. So happy I ordered the large as my back up! The material is that thick bandage type which really holds you in! No zipper so it's a bit of a challenge "slipping" into it. However, once you have it on it's really comfortable. I'm larger up to..DD and I didn't have any issues with the dress fitting or feeling too snug. The dress definilty was a hit and recieved a ton of compliments. It's a great price too! I would highly recommend selecting this dress for your special occasion!

Dress is gorgeous and material very rich. Lots of compliments. Worn at holiday parties.
It is tight and holds you in. I went with the medium to be comfortable but could have gone small. It is a little shorter than I would normally wear. It is one of those dresses that standing still its perfect but if you are moving or dancing it inches up. I felt like I was constantly pulling it down. Worn with gold shoes and accessories made it pop.

I wore this dress to a school formal and it fit me perfectly!
I was hesitant to rent a dress from the site because I get nervous buying things without trying them on first, but this dress fit perfectly! It hugged my curves in all the right places and it made me feel great! The material is rather thick and it feels like you're wearing spanx, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. I received comments all night and I will definitely be renting another dress soon!

Classy, beautiful dress
I rented this dress for Valentine's day, but I wish I could own it. It was so amazing. The detailing on it is absolutely gorgeous and it has a nice snug fit to it so it really tightens everything in and hugs your curves. I usually wear a small, but because the dress was on the tighter side, especially under my arms, I went to the medium, which was perfect. It is somewhat difficult getting on, but once it's on, it's really comfortable. It's a great length, not too short, not too long is just overall really classy. I felt beautiful in it and my boyfriend thought so too. I would highly recommend this to anyone!

The dress was beautiful. I love detail like this one has. It was very comfortable. My only complaint is that it runs small and I kept having to pull the hemline down! Other than that, I highly recommend this dress.

The dress was more tight fitting than I thought it would be, but it turned out to be fabulous! Glad I got the small also for backup. Received tons of compliments on the dress and would recommend this dress! Great for college formals!

The dress was spectacular, but it was just way too small.
The fit is very snug and considering there is not a zipper it makes for an interesting time trying to get the dress on. The main problem is in the sleeves. I'm very petite and the dress didn't fit quite right, but the sleeves were the main issue because I felt very constricted. The length was fine except when walking up stairs it rode up a bit which was a little awkward. I encourage you if you rent this dress to choose the next size up. I had the unfortunate experience of not getting my back-up size, but I didn't have anything else to wear so I did my best to not look a fool in this very beautiful dress. Rent-The-Runway was absolutely amazing and I plan to rent from them in the near future for my next event.

did you fold up the length? looks great on you!
JessMarch 4, 2014
I did not fold up the length. I'm only 4'11" so the length worked perfectly. Thank you, Elizabeth! It was very snug. If it was a small it would have been perfect.

NYE Party Dress!!
I wore this dress this past NYE and i got a lot of compliments on it. The dress is VERY form fitting so I would get a size up for your extra size. I usually can wear a small, but definitely needed the medium in this one. It's a lot prettier than it looks in the picture and the detail on the top is really eye-catching. Overall, I'd definitely recommend this dress.

This dress was a success!
What an amazing cocktail dress! I wore this for my engagement party and got nothing but compliments from my friends asking where I got the dress. I'm 5'2'' and 112 lbs. I'm glad I ordered two sizes - the XS and S because I could barely pull the XS over my head. I went with the small instead and it fit me perfectly. It's short but not too short, allowing me to wear with spanx and the heels of my choice. Great dress for petites.
