LOVED this dress! It fit wonderfully and concealed any post-baby lumps I might have around my midsection! ;) I paired it with a gold leather belt and gold and black chandelier earrings. Dress was comfortable and I felt like it was very flattering.

This dress fit well, but I wouldn't consider the fabric "jacquard." It is a fairly thin silk with a little bit of a pattern pressed into it but definitely nothing noticeable, which I was a little disappointed about because I was hoping for a thick jacquard texture. But overall the fit was true to size, I belted it to emphasize the waist and add color.

What a great dress! Wore it to a formal and got lots of compliments. Classy and elegant but short enough to still be fun (even though it was almost too short). I'm 5'4 and usually wear a 2 but it was too big but the 0 fit perfectly. Loved this dress-- perfect for any formal event.

Many events to attend during the holidays in Austin and getting a fab dress w/o having to buy!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Structured like a bustier top, some people may not have needed to wear a bra but I was in between sizes and went up a size to avoid looking squeezed in. With the larger size I needed help holding up the dress so I wore a strapless bra with it. Got so many compliments and felt comfortable and elegant all night.

Received this dress hours before an event, and unfortunately, I was only able to receive one size. It was too big, mostly in the bust :-( so I had to go with something else. Great service, though, and I definitely will be using RTR again.

I thought that I was a size 10 but I'm so happy because I found I lost weight. I fit the size 8, which came with the size 10 dress, with room to spare. I really loved the fact that there was extra security in the bosom area since I'm like an A cup and had to use breast enhancers to fill out the front! lol I'm 5'10" with an athletic build and this dress was the perfect length and suit my body just fine! Thanks Rent the Runway!!!

The Perfect LBD

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this for my birthday in Vegas, and it was perfect for the occasion. It was comfortable and stylish and best of all it had pockets. The length is a little short, but becuase of the shape of the skirt, it stayed in place all night. It was comfortable for dancing, although it did periodically shift to the right and had to be adjusted. But overall, great pick.

This dress got me so many compliments!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size

I have a bigger chest, so I was stuck between the 6 and the 8. I ended up choosing the 6 because I wouldn't have to worry about it falling down since it was a formal event. I was a bit squeezed and it had to adjust because it would twist to one side throughout the night. Super comfortable and the pockets were really convenient!

I mistakenly ordered only one size (2) that arrived the day before my event (a wedding in NYC). The two didn't fit and I called RTR at 5pm on a Friday in a panic. Their customer service is excellent, and a size 4 was delivered to the hotel where the wedding was held the day of the event. I picked up the dress when I checked in and it was perfect! Comfortable dress with convenient pockets. I was able to wear it without a bra and felt comfortable throughout the night. It paired well with the Slate and Willow, Ladies Who Lunch Necklace. Another successful RTR purchase!

The bodice is a bit tight, there is boning... but the waist is high enough that I could breathe and not have to worry about the muffin-top effect. Simple and elegant. A bit hard to dance in, the leg opening is small. So as long as you aren't "getting down" you're good to go!

I wore this dress for my Law School graduation. I have a curvy athletic build, and this dress softened me and was very comfortable. I do not have a very big chest however, and the chest area was a little loose. Other than that, it was perfect.

Law School Formal

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
For some reason, this dress in a size 0 was huge in the bust but SUPER short. I am only five feet tall, yet the dress was so much shorter than the other user pictures that it was nearly indecent - I could not sit down! The size 2 seemed longer, but was way too large. I think that maybe the size 0 is cut incorrectly? I will say, however, that the staff of RTR are simply wonderful. They not only shipped a panicked me a new dress overnight, but were incredibly helpful. They also promptly refunded an ordering error that I made. Bottom line: RTR is incredible, this dress in a size 0 is not.

Overall fit: True to Size

I wore this dress for my last sorority formal and I was looking for a classic and chic look - I definitely found it! I was worried about the fit because I have wider hips for my frame (32 inch bust, 26 inch waist, 39 inch hips) but they are right when they say there's room for curvy hips! The length was perfect for me and I'm an average height. The bust was a tiny bit too big but not big enough to where I could have gone done a size. Nothing a little dress tape couldn't fix! Plus the built-in belt thing for your waist made a big difference! This dress was so comfortable and the shape was so flattering for my figure. The fabric is gorgeous and I received so many compliments all throughout the night! I love it so much that I don't want to return it!!

Really comfortable dress and for the most part it fit true to size. I however, have a fairly small bust and tend to be a dancing machine. I did have to keep pulling the top up to keep it from slipping to my waist. I didn't get a back up size but I think that the 0 might have fit me better.

After being sick for a few months and not realizing I went down a dress size I was in a panic when I received my dresses and both were too big. The 4 could have worked but it was rather large in the bust and I was concerned about a stain on the front of it. I emailed customer service and they over nighted me a smaller size free of charge as well as gave me free samples of a shampoo and conditioner. The dress I received was perfect and seemed like brand new. One of my favorite rentals for sure.

Great dress, wish they had my size

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
The fit of this dress would have been perfect if they had the 6 I originally ordered. The top and middle was a bit big so I had to keep pulling it up. Thankfully I have a large chest so that helped. The pockets were great. It was difficult getting in and out of cabs as the dress was a bit tight around the mid thigh area when I walked, or tried to get in a cab. Nothing crazy tho. I rented it for a party in the city and I had no other options so I did use some safety pins. I just wasnt as comfortable as I would have been in the 6. My second time renting, not as happy as the first time, but the customer service was excellent, they tried. :)

So this dress is only4 Stars Because it arrived damaged, the part of the dress that should snap inside the zipped for better support was broken and torn. I did without it because I was at a wedding thousands of miles from home and honestly didn't feel like redoing my look. I would highly recommend this dress as long as it's not damaged. The fabric is very light and silky, a great look overall.
