20 weeks pregnant and this fit perfectly!
Wore this as a bridesmaid dress at 20 weeks pregnant. The top part was tight, while the rest was flowy to accommodate my modest bump. Most people couldn't even tell I was pregnant in this one. Bra was built in and material was of good quality. Excellent pick!

Simple, beautiful.
Loved this dress. I wore it for a benefit dinner and it was perfect. Normally strapless dresses slip, but this fit beautifully and stayed in place. Super comfortable, simple lines, very happy with this dress.

This dress was true to measurement. A bold, navy color.
I am tallish with a long torso and too often find dresses too high-waisted for me, but this one fit and laid well.

Went to a very high end restaurant... a once in a lifetime experience.
Pros: Very nice material. Fit very well I felt great in it. Cons: One of the herringbone bodice pieces dug into my side ALL night. I couldn't sit for more than 30 minutes at a time. Tips: I wore black shoes which worked very well and silver jewelry.

Great Dress
The dress fit great. I did need to wear a padded strapless bra to fill in the extra **space**. (I'm a 34B). It stayed in place & held the girls up just fine. No tugging at the dress all day. This was for a fundraising gala.

I received many compliments on this dress; my husband said it was one of the best I've ever rented.
It runs a bit small, but it was a flattering length and fit. I was not having to tug it up or anything all day. The fabric felt a bit heavy and I was concerned that I'd be too hot, but it was very comfortable.

Felt gorgeous
Runs pretty true to size. Zipper was hard to do and I needed assistance to get the zipper up. I couldn't turn it around to zip because of my bust. Overall, loved it and would recommend it. I wrote about my experience with Rent the Runway on my blog, Rudey's Room. Check it out for the details ... https://rudeysroom.com/2017/09/01/i-rented-the-runway-and-it-rocked/

Fit was perfect! Take advantage of the second size option. I went with the smaller size to be sure everything stayed in place.

Love this dress, fabric, cut, color. All were high quality and the fit was awesome. Loved it!
I feel this fit well. I was worried i would need the bigger size. I sometimes am a 4 or a 6 esp w strapless. The four fit perfectly.

Perfect for a Wedding!
I rented a 0, 2 and wore the 2 because it felt more comfortable (and especially because I was going to be eating later ;)! Fits true to size. You don't have to wear a bra with dress because there is support built into the dress, but I wore one anyway. The dress is beautifully constructed and you'll be sure to stand out and get lots of compliments! Easy to dance in, sit in, go to the bathroom, etc. Thanks RTR!

Many compliments
This was a great dress to a formal event with my boyfriend. I had to wear the 6 because the 4 was not given back in time and or damaged. I found that the 6 was a bit big in the bust and would slip as the night went on even with the aide of a strapless bra. The size 4 would have fit perfectly. I loved the high low hem line and it was a great dress for this winter event.

Gorgeous well made dress
This brand runs particularly small. Order your true size and the next size up. This dress is stunning. Unfortunately the one I have received (size 10) has been well loved. It has many minor snags and also came with some small spots on it. Which makes me sad. It also came wrinkled, so prepare to have it pressed. This is a stunning dress overall. Just be wary of the condition.

It was a Sunday afternoon summer wedding.
The dress is beautiful. I loved the high-low hem and the top was very comfortable and well fitted. I was not pulling it up all day long, like some strapless styles. It stayed put. Actually, the dress was so nice that I had to dress it down with a boring belt.

Simply gorgeous
Loved this dress! It was so pretty for the spring wedding I was at! Compliments and everything. The 8 fit a bit better but caused that "pooching" at my arm pit area so I went with the 10 (yay for backup!) otherwise I loved it! Definitely recommend!!

Pretty dress!
This dress was understated and classy - really beautiful fit and flow. The top was snug enough that I didn't need to wear a bra, and didn't have too many problems with it slipping down during the evening. I rented a crystal necklace to wear with it but ended up wearing one of my own smaller necklaces because it wasn't a very fancy wedding and the necklace was a bit over-the-top. All in all, enjoyed the dress and would recommend!

This dress fit so well and was perfect for an August wedding. Didn't feel it falling down, which tends to happen with strapless dresses for me. Recommended.

Perfect for a formal event
The zipper was a little hard to get over the seam so I had to zip it in the front and twist it around but other than that no complaints at all! Such a great fit, didn't have to wear a bra, and had no issues with the dress staying up all night. Super flattering and more on the conservative side. Perfect for a formal wedding- would definitely recommend this dress to a friend.

Blue stunner
This dress was absolutely beautiful. The shape was stunning, the material was comfortable, and the style was perfect. I wore this for my cousin's wedding and felt truly elegant. I got compliments all night and it was so fun to dance in! The length was perfect on my petite frame and the material was smooth and comfy a long day. Highly recommend!

Dark navy blue color, exactly what I expected
This is a great navy dress. The elastic at the top kept me from having to pull up all night. The length Was perfect in the back (for flats or heels) and the front came just below the knee. Runs true to size.

It was a great night of reunions with old friends.
This dress is super flattering, got tons of compliments all night! It stayed up surprisingly well even though it's strapless and the material was definitely thick enough I didn't have to wear a bra but you could if you felt more comfortable with one. I'm relatively short so it was kind of longer than I would have wanted, but with a pair of nude heels it worked well.

Classic dress
I chose two dresses before landing on this one. I was super excited about the first two, but they were too small. I wasn't in love with with this dress, but went for it since I was out of time. Since the first to dresses were 0's and I couldn't zip them, I went with a 2 on this one. It was pretty on the hangar, but trust me ladies, when you put it on, it's gorgeous!!! The wedding was black tie optional and this dress was the perfect choice. It fit percent and hides all flaws. I am 5'2 and I loved where the dress hit. There was no need to wear a bra and I had no issues with the dress staying up. Don't hesitate...rent this dress!!!! It will not disappoint.

Gorgeous, but a little large
I wore this to a wedding at the Masonic Temple in Pasadena. It ran a bit large for me. I wore a Nu Bra and a strapless bra under it. I didn't have to hitch it up, but it was a bit wide in the chest for me. I loved the way it looked with my silver Badgley Mischka heels and Dannijo crystal jacket earrings.

Texas "Winter" Wedding
The fit was perfect and very true to size. The shape is very flattering and it was really comfortable for a night of dancing. The cut of skirt is really fun and allowed me to show off some fun shoes!

Danced all night
I loved this dress! I wore it for a day wedding followed by a formal evening reception, and it was perfect. Loved the high-low hemline and how swirly it was, especially during dancing. And I usually stay away from strapless because I hate pulling them up all night, but this one stayed in place. I dressed it up with a big statement necklace and was good to go!

Beautiful dress, and so comfortable!
The only aspect that I didn't like about this dress was that it was a little longer than I was anticipating. I expected the front to fall down to just below my knee or at my knee, and it went down to about mid shin. Still a beautiful dress! I'm 5'5", so it probably would look great on someone a few inches taller. Overall, loved the color, loved how comfortable it was. Not my favorite RTR dress ever, but still a solid choice.

Wore this to a Christmas party in DC.
Top half is snug, which made me go with the larger size (8 instead of 6). Fit was great and I didn't have to worry about hiking up the top at all!

Good for petite ladies
At 5'2" and roughly 110 lbs, this was a perfect option for me. I didn't have to worry about the length, which is always a problem for me.

The bride totally checked out my bootay and told me how good it looked. I call that a win.
It fit perfectly. The bottom of the dress is weighed so while dancing I really had some good twirls. I was tight, but I could eat the wedding dinner and they way the waist falls you couldn't see the wedding dinner.

Such a COMFORTABLE dress!!!
This was my first experience with RTR, and it won't be my last!! I got this dress for a NYE wedding, and didn't stop getting compliments all night! This is one of the most comfortable formal dresses I've ever worn, and it is extremely true to size. I typically wear a 10, and a 10 is what I wore! I have a large bust and it stayed up all night and wasn't too tight. I am also only 5'2" and then back of the dress didn't touch the floor and was the perfect length. Would HIGHLY recommend this to anyone!!

SO comfortable!
I loved this dress. I am 5'2'' and wore it with 2-3 inch heels and it did not drag on the floor. The top was also perfect. I bough tape in case it was too loose but it fit well- no slipping even while dancing. I love that it wasn't too tight or corseted. I could breathe and move and did not worry about anything all night. This is my first time using RTR and it was a success1
