Form fitting and flattering
Wore this dress for an evening wedding. Overall it's a very pretty, form fitting and comfortable dress. Perfect for a wedding or a bridal sower. My only minor con is that the dress is a tad bit shorter than I was expecting. I'm 5 foot 1 and the hem hit mid-thigh. If you're looking for a little more length or if you have fuller hips you might want to go one size up.

Quick & easy!
This dress was really comfortable. When I first took it out of the bag I was a little nervous it looked faded but as you can see in the pics it looked amazing! My fiancé loved me in it too!

Lots of compliments!
The dress was perfect on me since I'm a little short, so the dress was a perfect length! The only problem I had was that it was a little tight around the bust; if you have a big bust I suggest getting a size bigger than you usually have. Other that that, this dress was very flattering and I got so many compliments the night I wore it!!

Cute dress!
I wore the size 6, as it had a bit more room in the stomach area to be shifty & just a tad longer, but the 4 fit better in the shoulders/arms. Dress was comfortable, and received many compliments. I paired with some plain black single strap heels and a necklace, loved the whole look together.

Gorgeous Shoshanna Dress!
I rented this dress for a wedding and I absolutely loved it! My first size was a 6 which is my normal size, but I ended up wearing the back up size 8 dress. The size 6 fit but was a little too short to feel comfortable. The dress itself was in great shape - there were a few threads at the hem that were loose, but overall it was a beautiful dress! The charcoal gray color and the pattern of the lace are gorgeous. My first Rent the Runway experience hit it out of the park!

The color of this dress is beautiful!!
I felt this dress was a little large. I definitely could have worn the 6 but unfortunately it wasn't available the weekend I needed it. Overall this dress was perfect for a fall wedding. The dress looks black in the picture online however it is actually a beautiful grayish purple. I received so many compliments. Other reviews said the dress was too short however I felt it was the perfect length for me. My mother loved it so much she's going to rent it for a wedding next weekend!

Great style and color
The fit was perfect. Slightly short even on my 5' frame. So wore a small heel and it was fine. Very pretty brown color. I would have given it 5 stars but there were several small rips in the lace around the hemline. Not notable unless you looked closely, like while sitting down. I loved the style though!

It was a cute dress for a friend's wedding
The dress fit "okay". It's not the most flattering dress for tall girls since it is a bit too short for comfort. I had to be careful how high I lifted up my arms before it became inappropriate. The bottom doesn't really hug your body, so it makes you look a bit frumpy as from the torso down, it sorta flares out--which the shortness does not help at all (it makes you look shorter).

Was looking for something new for a fall wedding that was both outdoors and indoors!
After reading reviews about the dress being short I didn't hesitate as at 5'-3" I was sure it would still be a good length for me! I received the dress and tried it on and wished they had had the next size up as a back up as with the size I ordered I knew it was just going to fit and it was going to be a wedding with alot of dancing and didn't want to be pulling at the bottom of my dress all night! I didn't end up wearing the dress due to length and overall fit and grabbed something out of my closet instead!

Endless compliments and ridiculous comfortable!
I am typically a women's medium in tops and a size 6 for dresses. I ordered the 8 based on the reviews of it being short, with my backup as a 10. I went with the 10 so it wasn't skin tight and I had room for comfort. I was able to wear a regular bra which is a must for me and it was perfect. I was able to wear a decent size heel as well as not constantly pulling it down. I fit in the 8, but since this was for a "work" holiday party, I wanted to be a bit more conservative. For my first RTR experience, I'm hooked. I have another party in January and can't wait to find another dress. My dress was supposed to arrive on a Wednesday for a Friday party, and it arrived the Monday of that week. HUGE plus!

I love RTR. Makes last minute dress shopping easy!
This dress was pretty true to size but a little short. I am only 5'3 so normally don't need to worry about length, but this was short. Other than that - loved it!

Perfect Spring Formal dress
I rented this for my sorority's 25th chapter anniversary dinner/ dance. I rented both a 8 & 10 but the 8 had a rip in the lace that was noticeable so I wore the 10 which fit well but the 8 would of been more ideal. The dress was beautiful though so I would definitely rent again.

March Wedding
The fabric was comfortable, loved the longer sleeves for a March wedding, the color was nice. I am around 5'2", 125 pounds, with a 34G bust and a size 4 jean. This dress was just the right material/style to fit my bust without making my waist look large. (My dresses came damaged however this dress would have been wonderful had they came in good quality.)

I absolutely loved this dress!
I rented this for a day wedding. I ordered a size 2 and a 4 for my backup based on others people's reviews. Ended up wearing the 2; which is my size. It was very comfortable and I received many compliments on it. I would definitely rent this dress again!!!

This is a very cute dress. Not too fragile like lace can be sometimes. I got tons of complements when I wore it out for a girls' night. Also, the fit is pretty much as pictured on the model (though not quite as short, though thats probably because I'm 5'4). Seemed true to size, and was tight enough to be cute and flattering, but loose enough to be comfortable. I'd definately reccomend this dress!

Very pretty dress, perfect for a cocktail event or wedding. It's definitely on the shorter side, and while it's not tight it's form-fitting enough that if you have a tummy you'll need some spankx!

Unfortunately, I rented the 6 and the 8 - but only received 2 8s! They were really helpful at Rent the Runway though - and very apologetic. This was a great dress for a work event: equal amounts of stylish, but still classic, so I didn't feel overdressed. The lace at the hem was a little frayed though, but otherwise a great dress.

LOVED my experience with RTR - I've already been back since!
The lace is absolutely gorgeous, although on the hanger, the dress looks lackluster. But I paired it with sparkly earrings and some killer heels to emcee a local event. I got compliments all night.

This dress is GREAT. I loved it! It was super comfortable and perfect for a fall wedding. I am tall, so it was a little short without tights. I ordered the 8 and the 10- the 8 fit well but was a little short, the 10 was looser and, as a result, a bit longer so I went with that. I wore a gold, green, and grey necklace and I got SO many compliments.

I love this dress. The shape is flattering, the lace is super feminine, and the color is great on any skin tone. I ordered an 8 and a 6, and chose to wear the 8 since my bust is 36D. I wore this for an engagement party with strapy flats to dress it down a bit. The length is great, and it is a perfect replacement for the little black dress. I will definitely rent this dress again!

Dress is more purple than grey and looks much better on than in the picture. Not sure if it's the stick thin model but it fits and looks more like the Boatneck one by Shoshanna (same dress just blue). Perfect if you want to meet the parents or go to a more conservative event.

Loved this dress! Loose but still form fitting enough to be super cute. Wore it to a girls night out with flats to dress it down and got a ton of compliments! The dress is almost a little short but not quite. Very beautiful! Just rented for a second time for a high school reunion - still love it!

LOVED this dress! Fit great and very flattering. I sometimes have to go up a size to fit my hips but not with this dress. It is short but with dark tights it didn't bother me. My husband, who isn't one to go overboard with the compliments, was downright effusive about how great I looked! I might even get it again for holiday parties.

I loved this dress so much! It ran a little big; I am quite petite and ordered a 0, and it was still not fitted, although still looked very classy. I wore this dress to a black tie event and definitely felt comfortable and dressed appropriately. The lace is a bit off-black. Length was good for my height; long enough but not awkward by any means. I would definitely rent this dress again!

This dress is really pretty in person, more of a purple than a blue. Tall ladies beware though, it was short on me and I am barely 5'3. I ended up disappointed as I was unable to wear it due to a discoloration at the neckline - it was a light pink color. It looked as though the color in that spot was lightened during an attempt at stain removal? Unfortunately, I noticed it the night before the wedding and had to run out and buy a new dress.

When I first received this dress in the mail, I was expecting it to by more grey than purple, but it ended up fitting perfectly and looking beautiful despite the color confusion. I wore silver and pearl necklaces from Stella and Dot which complemented the entire outfit. It was a bit short, but paired with black stockings (like in the picture), it wasn't inappropriate for the wedding I attended.

Loved this dress! Got lots of compliments. It fit well; hem hit me about where it hits the model in the photo. I wore it to a wedding and it was perfect for the event. also, I expected slate gray, but most people thought it was purple. I would strongly recommend this dress-- comfortable, attractive, a great choice!

I rented this dress for an event this past weekend and absolutely loved it! It was very comfortable, not at all itchy or stiff like some lace dresses can be. The material was excellent quality and there were no rips/tears/stains on the fabric. I rented my normal size and went up one size. I would definitely recommend sizing down instead of up, as even my normal size ended up being a bit loose through the middle. Overall the dress looked great on, and I got so many compliments. You should note that the fabric is more of a purpley/grey in person, not charcoal like is pictured...but I think it's even prettier in person. I can't wait to use RTR again!!

Wore this to a friend's winter wedding welcome dinner party. The dark purple color was fantastic, and the fit was extremely flattering. Only problem was that it was SHORT. Like can't raise my arms short. I rocked it anyway, received a ton of compliments, and kept my arms down.

Loved how everybody turned to stare when we walked in-- in a GOOD way!
I am 5'11", 140 lbs, and I rented the 4 and 6. When I tried them on, they both seemed a little big but the 4 fit fairly well. I know it's the style of the dress, but I felt like it was very wide and lacked any sort of shape-- tried adding a belt but that didn't work. Both sizes were clearly too short for the conservative wedding I was attending, but I wore the dress the next night out to dinner with black tights and black bootie heels. When we walked into the restaurant, I swear- every single person to look (probably because I was very tall, but I also felt fabulous in the dress!). It worked fine with the black tights for a night out, but if I lifted my arms at all it barely kept my butt covered! Like others said, it did have a slight purplish sheen to it- if it were slightly longer, I'd want to own this dress.

great dress
this dress is beautiful. I am petite, and I was able to pull it off--usually a size 0 does fine on me but it was slightly big.. just a little roomy, but definitely not super fitted. I'd still say it runs true to size. it looked elegant and since it wasn't my big day it was totally fine. some say it was short but I didn't have that problem (I'd say if you're above 5'5" it might be toward the shorter side) also, it photographs really well!

Very comfortable! Looked cute, easy to wear! No complaints except for the edges were a little frayed from wear, but nothing too noticeable.
