I had rented another dress from this site (the Black Halo Red Carpet Dress) and it was a complete disaster on me, so I ordered this one at the last moment. I am so, so, so pleased! I'm wearing this dress to my husband's office holiday semi-formal and it will be incredibly appropriate. Modest without being frumpy, super flattering AND I can wear a normal bra! The fabric is very thick and shiny. It looks well made and has beautiful tailoring. I would highly recommend this dress to other petite, curvy women!

Very comfortable, easy-to-wear dress. Poufy skirt could be considered slightly unflattering to your rear end, but the overall silhouette was nice. I felt like the waist fit me a little boxy, but the bust and skirt seemed true-to-size. Nice thick material, well made, very true to the picture. Would recommend.

This dress was another winner. I wore it to a work event, and it was a very appropriate dress for that. I am a very curvy girl with a full bust, and I like that Shoshanna designs with us in mind. This dress was very slimming, and I loved the pockets, a perfect place to hide my lipstick. I loved the detailing on the bodice of the dress. This dress was very well made and the material was good strong fabric. Very comfortable.

I rented this dress this past New Years and it was absolutely fabulous!!! It fits true to size and I loved that it had a little place to snap your bra straps so they don't fall out or slip down! (So yes, you can wear a regular bra!) I thought it was really flattering and it definitely stands out amongst the usual boring sequined mini dresses that every girl wears on New Years. The puffy skirt was my favorite, I felt like a princess! Definitely recommend this dress 100%!

I really, really dig this dress. I am petite and was afraid it would be "frumpy" but it was actually VERY cute on and really comfy. Fits well, the construction is quality and the style is classic. I ordered an XS and it fit perfect. Now I want to buy one!

I liked the dress but didn't love it. I actually thought it was a bit boring, even with shoes and accessories. I wouldn't have thought it, but I probably could have gone with a size smaller - the top of the dress was a bit big, and that's with a size 34DD chest. It looked fine, but was basically a plain black dress. I did like the pockets in it though!

I loved this dress. It was super easy to wear with a regular bra and very flattering. I am slightly short-waisted so I would have liked to see the smaller fit since the 6 was borderline roomy at the top. It was super cute with the tuleste market gold necklace.

Very comfortable and easy to wear. A great showcase for fab accessories. Fit perfectly. i only say that it runs large because I have a J-Lo/Kim K type of butt and I usually have to go up to a size 4 because of that. But the size 2 in this dress fit perfectly!

Great fit and no worries about dry cleaning.
I rented this to wear as a bridesmaid dress for a fall wedding. The fit was great and easy to wear all day. The fabric held up very well through sitting and dancing. Plus the pockets were very handy to hold tissues and emergency lip gloss.

This dress is great! I ordered both the 10 and 12 and wore the 10- I normally wear a 12. Order two sizes if you rent this dress.

Cute dress
This dress is very cute but it not for some one with a large chest. I ordered a 4 and a 6. The 4 fit everywhere from the waist down but I could not zipper it up in the back, it was a little roomy in the waist also. The size 6 was too big in the waist and was very tight in the chest. I am a 36C and a size 2 or 4. This dress did not work for me, I wish it did because it is very cute.

The pockets in this dress made my night AND I got tons of compliments to boot!
This dress was perfect for my party. It fit great and has pockets in the skirt! I didn't expect this but it made for an easy night since I could keep my phone/money close by without having to worry. I loved the puffed skirt because it made me feel like a princess but without all the fuss. This dress was easy to accessorize with and made my sparkly heels really pop.

sexy and pretty all in one
I wore this dress during a swanky trip to NYC and went out to a dinner and looked amazing in it. I've have a large bust and any dress that helps to define my waist makes me happy. The skirt looks even more amazing in person and it the right size to be sexy but not too short. The scoop neck is a bit on the low side so if showing too much skin is an issue you might want to add a pretty cardigan or pick another style.

I received so many compliments on my dress this evening. It was super comfortable and really worked well from the event to going out after.
I wore this dress to an awards event that I was working. I had to wear black to blend in but still look appropriate for a black tie affair. This dress was great. the fit is very true to size and I felt comfortable in it. I'm 5'9" so it would have been a little short if I hadn't worn tights with it. The pockets were a nice addition!

I got a bunch of compliments on this dress and my most favorite part was that I got to wear a regular bra!! I absolutely despise strapless bras so this was a big plus for me! So pretty and classy!

Great fit!
I am 5'4", ~128 lbs, and a 34B -- a size 2 was perfect for me. If I had a bigger bust, though, I think that a 2 would've been uncomfortable because the top is very fitted until about midway between the bust and waist. With the slightly fuller skirt and the lines of the top, it's an incredibly flattering dress for anyone with hips. The only point of caution is that, for me, the length was at the threshold of being too short at mid-thigh. I wore this to work at a formal fundraiser, and I had to remain very aware of the dress when I stood up or I had to stoop a bit when talking with guests. The fullness of the skirt helps, though, as you don't need to worry about it riding up. Overall, a great dress!

Loved it but too small
I would have loved this dress I think but it was too small. They didn't have the next size up when I ordered it so I only got the one size. I have a 38DDD bra size and there was no pull in the material. Better luck next time I suppose. I ordered the size 12 and it fit exactly the same in the bust as the 10 did.

yay! this one fit so well.
I was a groom's honor attendant and had to wear a black dress to match the groomsmen's suits. I'm a 34A, with a 26" waist and 36" hips. I called RTR just to make sure I was picking the right sizes (I rented 3 dresses total - this one was a back up but I ended up wearing it). They said my measurements sounded like a true 4, so to pick a 2 for this dress since it runs big. The size 2 fit perfectly, with a plus being it had pockets for holding the ring.

Cute but not flattering on me.
This dress is cute but was not flattering on my body type (smaller waist, bigger legs)-- it wasn't quite fitted enough and the waistline didn't hit me in the right spot.

Looks nice - For smaller girls
So my dress size can vary, as can anyone else's. I had ordered this in a 12, since that was a size I've been coasting on for awhile (I can be L/XL). Sadly, when I put the dress on, it was too tight... especially for the chest area (I'm 38DD). :( Also, I really like how it looks on others and on the model, but on me it looked and felt a bit too plastic-y... I know that's not the material, but it wasn't quite what I was going for. Felt like a trash bag, in a way. Long story short, had it not been so tight/small and not felt trash bag-y, I'd have worn it this weekend....

Gor.Geous.
I rented this dress for a fall wedding where I didn't need to be too fancy, but still wanted to be polished, and this dress definitely fit the bill. Normally wear a size 6, but the back up size (a size 4) was still a little big on me around the waist. Probably could have used a size 2 (as recent weight loss may have accounted for the dress being big. Dress looked great, I was complimented on it all night. Came in near perfect condition (I say "near" because the hidden (but AWESOME) bra strap clip on the right shoulder of my size 4 was missing, but was easily replaced with a tiny safety pin, so no biggie). Great, modest length and coverage on the dress and the pockets were a big plus. I will definitely keep this dress in mind for future rentals. I LOVED it.

I wore this dress to my senior preference ceremony for my sorority. I got so many complements.
The dress fits true to size. If you have a bigger chest, you may want to go up one size. Everyone loved the dress and I got a lot of complements. I would recommend this dress to anyone, especially curvy women like me!

This was my backup dress but I ended up wearing it for the event. It fit like a glove!
I loved this dress and got tons of compliments! It was my backup but I liked the fit so much better than my first choice. I typically wear a size 12 but the 10 fit much better. I recommend going a size down for your backup size. It was super flattering everywhere, especially in the tummy area (I just recently had a baby and still have the pregnancy pouch). I highly recommend this dress!

I love this dress! I looked great and it's easy to accessorize for it.
It was a little bigger than I anticipated. I probably should have gotten a 4, but it wasn't so big that it was a problem. There are little things in the dress that hold your bra straps in place and pockets (such a plus).

Fabulous!
I am 5'7" and was 160 lbs when I rented this dress. The size 8 worked, though I got the 10 as backup. I dont recommend wearing a bra if you can go without. I am a 36D, so I wore one, and my breasts were practically in my face (the dress is tighter up top than I would have wanted). But I think if I had went without the bra it would have worked better. The dress keeps that nice puff shape even after sitting through a 45 minute ride to the party and a 4 course dinner. The fabric is silky and luxurious without being too shiny (or disco-ball like). Highly recommended dress for those with hourglass figures and a bit of a tummy pooch to hide =)

My best friend helped me pick out the dress to wear at her wedding.
I loved the fit! Created a perfect hourglass shape - cinched in at the waist and enough room in the hips to feel comfortable sitting, dancing, eating, walking, etc. The pockets were perfect for holding my keys, tissues, lip gloss, and my reading for my best friend's wedding.

Awesome! Felt so glamourous AND comfortable.
This dress was amazing. Beautiful pleating on the front of the skirt. The dress was so classy and elegant. I had compliments on it all night. I have a curvy figure so the cut was just perfect. The fabric was really lovely but it was heavy enough (and lined) to avoid any bumpy areas showing through. Love Love Love

Everyone complimented the dress. It may have even been a little too sexy for the wedding!
The waist fit perfect, but the top was a little too big. I had to use the included double-sided tape to keep the straps and top of the dress in place.

My sister's first rent the runway purchase was a success :)
This was my present to my sister. She had never worn a designer dress before, so she was really excited to wear this to our family Christmas party. The dress does run short (my sister is about 5' 7"), but the rest of the fit was pretty true to size. It looks great with black tights but I'm sure gold would be great for a NYE bash!
