This dress has POCKETS.
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
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!

Superb customer service!
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
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!

This dress got me so many compliments!
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
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!

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.

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.

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.

simple and flattering, looks great punched up with some statement jewelry.

Overall fit: True to Size

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.

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.

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.

this dress was really pretty on, but a little tight in the bust. i ended up sizing up to the 10. the only other issue was the rental was pretty worn & ripped on the inside. otherwise it's a great dress that i would rent 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!!!

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 rented the 8 and the 10. The 8 would have fit, but the boning was broken and it felt like wearing a medieval tourture device. I ended up wearing the 10 and taping the dress to me and adding a sating braided belt to help keep it up. Got lots of compliments all night.

There is a built in corset that makes sure you do not have to pull up the dress. Pockets are nice and don't add bulk. Went for smaller size. It runs a bit large. Cute with ponytail and red lips!

I usually wear an 8 or 10, but since I own another Shoshanna dress in a size 8 (and it's a little big) I decided to go with size 8 and size 6 back-up. Glad I did, because the 6 fit a lot better -- If I had a bigger bust (I'm 34 D) I think the 8 would have been perfect, it was just falling down a bit. Wore this to an outdoor October wedding and it was perfect. The only drawback was that in the particular dress I had, the boning had come out of the seams and was poking me in the ribs all night. I actually still have red marks from that. Hopefully that's an isolated issue and has been fixed.

I rented this dress for a wedding. Ordered a 2 and a 0 as my backup size. The dress was HUGE. the 2 fell right off and the 0 barely stayed up (thank god for double stick tape). I taped the dress to me all around - only way it would stay up. This was my first rent the runway experience, needless to say I was less than impressed.

I was totally surprised by how big this dress runs. I am usually an 8, read the reviews and ordered a 6 as well...and the 6 was still too big! I am a little small in the chest area so that may have been the problem, but I have never worn a size 4 and I think I would have to to wear this dress. I was bummed that I couldn't wear it because it is a gorgeous, high quality dress.

So cute and simple. Wouldn't have any complaints except that some of the boning in the bodice was coming out. Thankfully the dress wasn't too tight so it didn't hurt but that's definitely something that should've been fixed.

For the first time, I had to return my RTR purchase without being able to wear it. The dress is pretty, but it's relatively boxy and un-flattering on the lower half. I am usually an 8, but I ordered the 8 & 10. Both were too big and simply did not look good. It's my first RTR that I can't recommend.
