I wore this to an early evening cocktail party. It was both conservative and pretty - perfect.
Great dress! Very vibrant purple. Was a little tight in the arms, but not too tight to wear.

Beautiful dress!
I ordered a 0 and a 2 and the 0 fit great! The length was good and the style was perfect for a conservative event.

Amazing dress!
This dress fitted great. I was worried that the arms would be too tight since the lace doesn't stretch. But it fit great and I felt really good in it. The color is a little brighter than I expected but it made it plum-y color that I really loved.

Cute!
Wore this to a wedding rehearsal in a church then out to dinner. The color and material is very pretty although there were some noticeable pulls from previous wears. I would not recommend this dress for dancing but it was perfect for the event I attended!

Beautiful, classy dress for any occasion!
Simple and classy dress for weddings! Wore it for an April wedding and got many compliments on the color! The arms are a bit snug but the bigger size solved that problem. Highly recommend the dress for any occasion as you can dress it up or down as much as you'd like!

Beautiful color, runs small
The color and quality of the dress is fantastic. However, like other reviews stated, it runs very tight in the arms/shoulder areas. There is absolutely no give to the fabric. I'm usually a 6 or 8 in dresses, and think that a 10 probably would have been best ( I wore the 8). Very easy to dress up or down though and was the perfect length. Might rent again, but would rent the next size up.

Perfect wedding dress!
I could see how the sleeves may be tight depending on the size, but this dress was so comfortable and fun to wear! The color is beautiful, perfect for a wedding. The length is just right! I went with the 10 as I'm a little taller and felt that my reaching was less restricted. If you're between sizes- I'd probably size up!

Beautiful dress, hit at the knee fit well, did not run large as others said.
It was not large as others said. I actually could have gone down a size the waist wasn't as fitted as I thought it would be, but still very cute and appropriate for the wedding I went to.

Perfect for winter wedding
Snug in the hips, I had to go for the larger size. A bit tight in the sleeves, so made it a little uncomfortable for dancing.

Nice design, strange fit
I really liked the design and the style of the dress, but the fabric had ZERO stretch. It fit decently well around my hips, but the bust area pulled very tight and the dress would rise anytime I lifted my arms. I rented this for a christmas party at work and it was difficult to dance in since I kept having to pull it back down.

Very happy that I used Rent the Runway for my event. Very easy process, will do it again!
The dress was great. I used the reviews to help me determine the sizing. I ordered a 6, which I usually wear and the 8. I wore the 8, a little more breathing room. I had many compliments on the dress and my husband wished I had bought it so I could wear it again. Everything was exactly like the picture on line. Can't wait for my next event to rent another dress.

I wore the dress for a formal dinner
The dress was very comfortable, just a little bit tight in the bust area. The length was perfect, I didn't want anything too short/long and ordered size 8 just in case but 6 looked better on me.

Absolutely loved this dress!
For me the dress ran a little big on top. I ordered a 0 and 2 and wore the 2 because the the bottom of the dress was tight for me. But not too tight I couldn't dance the night away! thought it was the perfect length and the sleeves weren't too tight. Overall I loved this dress!

Great dress for an engagement party. The lace is so pretty and color is elegant.
Dress fits true to size, although it has no stretch in the shoulders/arms so some may want to size up. The lace is not scratchy. I would recommend for any cocktail-type event!

Beautiful dress
This color and fabric are great BUT the sleeves are way, way too tight and the fabric under the lace is too long (or the lace too short) so it peeks out of the bottom of the dress. I wore it for a friend's winter wedding but would not rent this dress again.

Everyone loved this dress on me!
When I saw this dress online, I knew I had to rent it. Not only was it purple (my favorite color), but it matched the wedding colors. Everyone complimented me all on this dress. The only down fall is the arms were super tight. Luckily, everyone was inebriated that they didn't notice me struggling to lift my arms above my head on the dance floor. I would suggest ordering a size above your normal dress size if you have chubby arms like myself. Overall the dress was a good fit and a hit! Thanks again RTR!

Classic and beautiful!
Loved the color of this dress. I went with the 6 instead of the 4 which is my typical size. Recommend sizing up. I didn't find the arms to be tight like others mentioned. Got compliments all night on how beautiful this dress was. Would definitely rent again!

STUNNING dress
This was my overnighted 2nd choice dress (and they could only send one!) but the stylist helped me choose the perfect size. The dress fit like a glove! As others said, the sleeves are a little tight, but I barely noticed all night. I had several people at the wedding compliment my dress & my husband wished I could buy it!! This one is a keeper!! (Oh, and it's deep purple...much different than the product photo.)

This was my free birthday dress, which worked out great because we went to a wedding on my birthday.
If you have big thighs, like I do, this dress runs very tight through the thighs. Made it a little difficult to sit and stand as often as you do for a wedding.

Great winter wedding up in the NH mountains. Lots of late night dancing & lots of cupcakes.
Great dress. The sleeve restricted my awkward dance moves. I was not able to put my arms above my head. Also i was not able to do high kicks. In retrospect it probably saved me some embarrassment. Beautiful & comfortable dress. Would recommend.

Felt comfortable and confident!
I wore this dress for a NYE dinner. As others have mentioned, the lace arms are a little tight, but not so much so that I wasn't very comfortable in this dress all evening. A couple different people said they liked the dress and then later commented that they didn't realize that it was purple! The eggplant color appears black at first when you're outside or somewhere dark, but it's actually a gorgeous color. I wore it with nude tights/heels and gold dangly earrings, but you could definitely mix it up with your accessories and shoes! I think I'll rent this dress again for a fall/winter wedding.

Comfortable and classy!
The dress fit my body well and was very comfortable. I received several compliments that I looked skinny and so the dress is also very slimming. Loved the purple color. I got a size up because I was worried about the sleeves being tight based on other reviews, and the size up fit perfectly.

Comfortable and Pretty!
This dress was very comfortable and elegant. I'm a petite 5' 1", so I struggle finding dresses that aren’t TOO long. This one was perfect. It hit about 1-2 inches above my knee. Other reviews commented on the arms being too tight, but I didn’t have a problem with that. I do wish the dress had been a bit more form fitting. It has more of a sheath fit, but it was still gorgeous none the less!

Easy to return!
Gorgeous and perfect for a Christmas party! Comfortable all night. You can wear a normal bra and it isn't too short (I'm 5'2). Sleeves were not too tight, but I couldn't raise my arms. If you are doing a lot of dancing, this dress probably wouldn't work.

Loved it!
I wore this to a work Christmas party and it was perfect for the occasion. It fit great through the waist and shoulders, was a bit loose through the bust (which I expected since I am very small chested) and was much longer on me than on the model in the picture (also expected). Over all I loved the dress and wish I owned it!

I did receive many compliments on the color and the style of this dress.
This dress was a bit tight - I normally wear a 6 and I'm glad I opted to get the free additional size in an 8 because that's what I ended up wearing. It was very tight in the arms.

The 0 fit my body better, however I chose to wear the 2 b/c the sleeves are really tights & I could barely move my arms. I have an athletic build so perhaps that could have been the issue with the arms?!

This dress was great for the wedding that I attended. Not too dressy, but not too casual.
I normally flip between an 8 and 10 depending on the cut of the dress. The 8 was almost just right, but the fabric does not provide much movement so I decided to go with the 10. Not a huge difference between the two, so I took the extra room. This dress does not allow you to raise your arms very high.

I rented this dress for my husbands office Christmas party. It was perfect for a formal night out!
The body of the dress was true to size and fit well, but like others have noted the arms are a bit snug. I wore my normal size (0) and was comfortable enough. The tightness in the arms didn't distract from having fun! The length was perfect too! I'm petite and the hemline fell about 3 inches above the knee which was just right. Overall, I felt beautiful in the dress and would definitely rent it again for another more professional/formal affair.

Great dress for a fall wedding--in a color nobody else wore!
Loved the dress! The sleeves were a little tight for dancing, but as the night went on they got more comfortable. Fit is great, and the color will make you stand out at any fall wedding (everyone else was in reds and blues). Definitely recommend it!

Fell in love with this dress
I wish I had gotten a picture in it, because it was so perfect! I've worn this designer before and it just fits me like a glove (5'3", 108lb). The color is definitely more purple than maroon (I'm an Aggie, I would know!), but the purple is absolutely gorgeous... Like a very deep eggplant. It hit me about 4" above the knee, so was a bit short when sitting, but not short enough to cause any problems! I felt beautiful & classy at my husband's Christmas dinner. Would highly recommend! Wore it with RTR's antique cascading crystal necklace and it was stunning. Didn't have to wear any more jewelry with it! Also worn with light patent gray stilettos.
