Great "mermaid" feeling in this dress was perfect for an "under the sea" themed event!
Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Fit: I got a 4R with a 2R backup size. Both sizes fit pretty well. The 2R would have fit with a different bra, but since my strapless bra has some pretty sizeable padding, I ended up wearing the 4R. (For someone comfortable with doing so, I actually think this dress would be okay bra-less.) Both sizes were about the same fit elsewhere, so I would recommend really using bust size to determine the best fit. The dress is very long and definitely should have been worn with heels (I wore flat sandals and tripped a bit). Pros: The fabric is beautiful! The color of this dress was amazing and great for springtime. Cons: The bodice structure of this was really stiff. There's boning structure over the ribs and sides, which help the dress stay in place very well, but it made it very uncomfortable for sitting as the plastic boning dug in to my stomach and ribs.

My only complaint is that the dress was too long. I wore 4in heels and it still dragged on the ground. I would say this is a great dress, but if you are short the Regular size is too long!

Destination Wedding at The Ernest Hemingway House in Key West
Size worn: 12R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The dress is so pretty! I achieved mermaid status with this one. I wore sandals covered in metallic gold flowers instead of heels since we were outside the whole time. Since it was so long, I tied the bottom in a drape-y style side knot...gave it more of a cool, casual vibe. The lining wasn't very breathable, but It was fine. However, if it had been truly hot outside, I would have felt muggy. I accessorized with the Gemma Redux White Pearl Waterfall earrings.

Got compliments on the dress the whole night, endless people asking where it came from!
Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress fit really well, I am usually between sizes, so the 8 was too big on the top, I would have needed to safety pin the top, but the six I definitely had to breathe in while zipping. The 6 also had a hard zipper, with some pulled strings in the way, so we had to be careful with it. The dress itself was beautiful though!

I received so many compliments on the dress!
Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
The dress was beautiful! I normally wear a size 4 or 6 depending on the item. The size 4 in this dress fit for the most part, but it was slightly tight in the chest/rib cage area. I'm not very busty, so if you are thinking of getting this dress and ARE busty, I'd go up a size. I was lucky the 4 fit for the most part since the size 6 wasn't available. Overall, I loved the dress!

Overall fit: True to Size

I had a baby a month in a half ago and I still have 10 pounds to loose. I am 5'8 and the regular length was long enough and I was still able to wear 3 inch heels. This dress made me feel beautiful and comfortable. I would have added a nice belt if I would have found one. Love the color and rtr!

Gorgeous dress!
Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I was so excited to wear this dress and elated that it fit! I rented the 4R and 6R. I ended up going with the 6R because it was more comfortable and not as tight at the waist. The dress was beautiful in person, the light weight fabric was perfect for an end-of-summer wedding. I think the dress photographed really well and I got a lot of complients on it. The only downside... it was really long on me, but that is to be expected because I am 5'3"!

My favorite formal dress that I've ever worn!
Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I've been looking forward to receiving this dress for months, and I was not disappointed! The fabric was light, and perfect for a summer formal. The structure of the top with the boning kept the dress up all night (seriously, I never had to do that awkward pull- up adjustment that you do when you wear strapless things!) and still lightweight enough that I didn't feel suffocated or restricted by it! I was wearing 5 inch heels, so the dress was a little higher off the ground than I expected, but if you are shorter, or wear shorter shoes, you should be just fine!

Perfect for a summer black tie wedding!
Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I loved this fabric so much! Super light and shimmery, and totally perfect for a black tie wedding in the middle of the summer. I got complements all night and felt amazing. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of the usual problem I have with Shoshanna dresses – the bodice never seems to fit as tightly as I’d like. Clearly, this doesn't keep me from renting her dresses! But it does leave me with the nagging feeling all night that the dress isn't as flattering as others might be. Totally minor issue, though. Overall, I loved this dress!

It was so easy and stress free to rent from this site! The dress was great, delivered on time!
Size worn: 10R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I heard about Rent The Runway on the Today Show, and decided to try them out for a formal event. I requested the dress a few days before the event because I was worried it wouldn't be delivered on time, but it arrived on the exact specified date! The dress came in a garment bag, which you can keep, and a pre-paid packaging box with easy instructions on how to return. It was also helpful that the website send me email reminders about when to return. The color is JUST as advertised! Mint green with gold flecks. It's very light weight and airy, sweetheart neckline and flowing bottom. I received so many compliments on the dress, and I proudly told people I rented it! I ordered a 10R and wore it with gold high heels, but it was still touching the floor, which meant I had to pick it up from dragging on a few occasions. I'm 5'7 and I recommend anyone my height or even a few inches taller to get the Regular and not the Long. The only con I have about this dress is the zipper. It gets stuck easily, which makes zipping it very tricky (definitely a two-person job!). I was scared of ripping the fabric or breaking the zipper because it didn't feel very sturdy. I plan to rent another dress from this site later this summer!

Perfect dress for Lincoln Center NYC wedding!
Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
LOVED this dress! I paired it with Nicolle Miller's Southern Plantation Earrings and Lauren Merkin's Gold Eve Clutch for a friend's wedding in the penthouse at Lincoln Center at NYC. The color & light sparkle in the dress was gorgeous. I received many compliments on it! My only complaint is that the lining of the top showed a bit along the neckline. Also, I am 5' 8" and RTR doesnt have long sizes in this dress. So I had to wear flat sandals with this dress. The color is a little more blue and not as green as the pictures indicate. But other than that, I simply loved this dress! It was extremely comfortable & easy to dance in.

Gorgeous color for spring, lightweight, secure fit, comfortable
Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Fit fell in the bodice but I have a long torso so sometimes the waist can seem to ride a little high or bunch up a bit. Otherwise, the 2 fit very securely with a strapless bra, I didn't worry that it would fall off, no tugging up needed. The color was gorgeous. The dress can wrinkle very easily. It came wrinkled in the skirt and I had no time to iron it (don't know if it can be ironed). Also, I am 5'5 and even with 3 inch heels, the skirt was still too long by about half an inch.

Got compliments all night! Nothing like it anywhere!
Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is gorgeous! It was originally my backup dress, however, it was so much prettier in person everyone agreed I must wear this one instead. In person the color is so much brighter than shown on screen, very bright baby blue. I am 5'7, about 135 and the 4R fit well. I am tinier on top, pear shaped, so this style is perfect if you are also. I wore flat gladiator sandals and the dress did not drag on the ground. You can easily wear a strapless bra with this style. Be aware the inner corset also has a strap to bind you as well. It took myself and hubby to put it on. It wasn't uncomfortable and I felt it did give the dress a better fit. However if you have a thicker waist, it might be uncomfortable. Online it thought the sparkles in the dress were gold, but actually they are silver and bright. But I still went with my gold accessories and it looked fine. The only disappointment was the dress did come damaged from RTR. It was torn at the bottom from a person who was probably shorter and stepped on it. It wasn't too noticeable since the bottom is a chiffon, pleated style. This dress was perfect for a black tie summer wedding in CA! Highly recommend!

This was such a different look for me and I got so many compliments!
Size worn: 12R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wanted a fancy dress for my senior ball but I also didn't want to buy a long dress that I was only going to wear once. I saw this dress and fell in love right away. I was a little afraid of getting a dress that hadn't been reviewed yet, but I'm glad I took the plunge. The spots are a little more silver than the picture shows, but the minty color online is pretty true. This dress was a little difficult to zip up; the seam kept getting in the way and it was definitely a two person job. Also, the dress had some boning that started poking after a little bit, but it was bearable. It was also a little long for me, but I'm short and wide, so it will probably be ok for girls that are more proportionate than I am. I really liked the look of this dress and got a lot of compliments. It was a great introduction to RTR and I will definitely be renting again.

The dress was a little loose on the top even though I got the smallest size. It was the perfect length for me and I'm a little above average height so it may be slightly long on a shorter person. I loved how different it was, and how sparkly it looked it in pictures.

Pretty dress.
Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size

I rented this a backup, as it was so pretty and looked great for a spring wedding, but I didn't up on wearing it. It fit great overall, and was just as beautiful in person, but compressed my chest and I'm only a 34B. I had another gown with a more flattering cut, and end wearing that instead.

I love Shoshanna as a designer so I knew I wanted to rent this dress as soon as I saw it. The mint green is the perfect color, didn't wash out my skin even though I'm not very tan. The gold flecks make the dress interesting and it looked amazing in pictures! I didn't want to return this dress.

A perfect choice for a black-tie winter wedding! The gold really pops!
Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Dress was true-to-size (I usually wear a 4-6 in pants but 2 in dresses). I do have a BC cup and really couldn't fit a strapless bra under the dress without popping out the top. I am 5'4-5" and needed to wear about 2" heels with this dress for it to hit the floor exactly. The corset and boning kept the dress in place nicely during dinner and dancing. The looser abdomen allowed me to eat and enjoy the evening comfortably. I got several compliments on the design and pattern. Really, the gold detailing caught people's eye and made my dress, which was a similar color to others' stand out.

Great dress for a fun take on a black-tie wedding
Size worn: 10R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I loved this dress. I am 5'8" and vacillate between a 10 and 12 in most dresses. I rented the 10R and the 12R. I tried the 12 on first and it was 3" too long and pretty bulky in the bust. Thank God the 10 fit like a glove! It was still about 1/4 inch too long but I was only wearing 3" heels. If you wear 3.5" heels or higher (or you're taller than me), you should be fine. Also, I have a pretty small chest; ladies with boobies may have a different verdict about the dress. I received so many compliments at my friends' wedding. I'm a natural redhead and the green and gold looked great with my skin and my blue-green eyes. I highly recommend this dress.

I had high hopes for this dress and should have ordered a size down. I only ordered the 4 and it was too big and would not stay up without pulling on it all night so I opted not to wear it. I would consider trying it again in the smaller size. The color was a lovely mint and it was gorgeous

Overall fit: True to Size

This dress was so pretty! The color was pretty true to the picture although the gold dots appeared to be more of a silver. It fit great minus the fact that the dress was pretty long even with heels. The only real issue I had with the dress was the zipper. It got easily stuck and I was afraid I would rip the fabric. I was 100% satisfied with the dress and will definitely be renting again in the future.

Overall fit: True to Size

I am 5'3, 120lbs and normally a size 2, while this dress is really beautiful the regular size length is way too long. Even with 4 inch heels on this dress was at least 5 inches too long for me to wear- I was so sad because it was the perfect dress for a beach wedding, but I was tripping over my self. I would not recommend this dress to anyone under 5'7

It's really long, even when wearing 3 1/2 inch heels and some of the boning after hours of dancing started to be a little uncomfortable. I read previous reviews saying the fabric on the top folds over, which is true, so I took a safety pin and pinned it back and it lasted all night! Also the skirt really is not as full as in the photo- it's really a very figure flattering dress! I would actually go buy it

It's a beautiful dress, but unfortunately didn't work for me. I'm 5'4" and it was way too long, even when I tried the smaller size. Maybe if I had much taller heels it would have worked, but I'm not sure I could have walked. The dress itself is gorgeous.

Beautiful gown, but too much fabric makes this dress a bit bulky.
Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this dress but decided not to wear it (sorry I should have taken some pictures!). It was a bit bulky given all the fabric so it made my waistline look much bigger than it was. However, this dress is really beautiful and romantic. I am on the shorter size and curvy, so this would look great on a tall and lean person!

Beautiful dress... for another girl
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
PLEASE IGNORE MY MEASUREMENTS. I rented this for my daughter who is 5' 2", 115lbs, and a 34B. It was a beautiful dress, great fabric, especially if you're going for that etherial, flowy feel. However, the bodice is very tight and not forgiving. My daughter's upper body was smushed and did not look good. She's usually a size 4 but I got the size 2 based on some other reviews. Don't do it unless you're very small-boned and small chested. A size 4 would not have fit my daughter. I think if you're very thin, with a smaller bust, this would be a flattering dress.

Fanciful and fun!
Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size

This dress was sent to me as a new back-up dress when the one I initially requested was unavailable. Though I hadn't seen it on the website, I loved it when it arrived. I ended up deciding to wear the other dress to the wedding, but I liked this one so much that I dressed it down with gold sandals, and fun earrings and wore it to brunch the next day. I've never gotten so many compliments at brunch! I love that you could dress this up or down. (Also, it works well pregnant, I was 26 weeks when I wore it and I loved it).
