I love this dress....I will probably order in every color for different occasions.
I have a hard time with dresses and usually have to get them altered because I have wider hips and smaller waist. I was concerned about wearing a strapless bra, but because the waist fit perfect it gave added support!

beautiful dress, not great for apples.
This was a great dress! I rented it for my brother's rehearsal dinner. The fabric was thicker and textured, but it was very pretty on. I will say that while it runs pretty much to size, it was slightly small. I am an apple and it was a little snug on my waist all night, its not quite an empire and not quite a standard waist. The 10 was far to big though. I am also pretty typically an 8 in jeans and dresses.

Fall Wedding
I wore this dress to my co-workers wedding. Overall it fit the atmosphere and I got a lot of compliments. This dress had ZERO stretch to it. I have rented other dresses by this designer and they too had little to no stretch however, I had to wear the 8 (it was still quite snug) when normally I can wear this designers 6 but opt for the 8 to be comfortable. I would have been more comfortable in a 10.

Great fun dress
I am short and always worried dresses will be too long and this was perfect! It was a little large in the chest area but I am petite and you really couldn't tell so it didn't sway me from wearing it.

Great dress!
I ordered this dress for a winter wedding, and it worked out perfectly! I picked a size 4 and a size 2 as my back-up, and I ended up wearing the size 2. It was slightly snug, but I forgot about it once the night started. I got tons of compliments, and I would highly recommend it!

New years Eve party Lots of compliments on overall look. it was cold so i wore insulated hosiery.
classic baby doll dress snug fitting just under the bra line. size 12 if you are a 36 bust. I am average in hgt and felt the dress was appropriately short for my age. So many possible looks with this dress by accessorizing. I chose to wear thermal stockings, black semi-gloss leather pumps, and brassy gold jewelry. I was able to (with a light jacket) step outside for fireworks and still stay warm. Strange thing was, my lip color was a major hit so I will recommend wearing a red that pops with this dress.

The fabric was great. It was slightly large in the straps so I kept having to adjust it.

Unfortunately UPS didn't make the delivery but RTR made up for it by giving me a promo code for my next rental. They were very helpful! Can't wait for an event to wear this dress to though; it's adorable.

Not for busty gals
I was a little underwhelmed by this dress. It was a little longer than I had wanted and the top was a little too tight for my chest. I ordered a 4 but it looked frumpy, so I ended up wearing the 2 instead. Overall, was it fine? Yeah. Would I rent it again? Probably not.

Simple, comfortable, short and sexy LBD with POCKETS!
Pros: Pockets are awesome - deep and secure, I carried my phone, id and keys in them all night and they never budged (and there was a lot of dancing too), Tight at top so no bra required, baby doll style means no having to mess with spanks or worrying about underwear lines, pretty darn short makes it sexier than it would be otherwise Cons: It's a pretty basic black dress, nothing especially extravagant or noteworthy about it Also, I usually waffle between a 6 and an 8 and the 8 was too gappy at top... so likely size down

Perfect dress to accessorize
I rented this dress for a sorority formal. I had a big statement necklace and colored shoes picked out already so this was the perfect dress for that. It is a basic black dress. There was some cleavage but it was not too revealing overall. There were also pockets!

Great LBD
I wore this dress for a friend's bachelorette party where we were all asked to wear black. The thicker fabric was great for the November rooftop location, however I did feel that the fabric looked a bit worn. Nothing that a great necklace couldn't over power though! The dress fit great everywhere but the bust for me. Because the fabric is a bit stiffer you have no choice but to "fill out" the bust area or everyone can see right down! I ended up wearing quite the push up bra to fill it out and then ended up showing more cleavage then I normally would. Worked out OK for a bachelorette party but wouldn't have been appropriate for all occasions :)

classicly cute LBD
Rented this dress for a dinner date with my boyfriend and his parents. It was perfect! Dressy enough for the upscale French restaurant we had dinner at, casual enough for me to feel 100% comfortable and confident in all night.

Such a great dress!
I got both a 6 and an 8. Both fit really well, though the straps on the 8 were a little large. I went with the 8 though because i knew I'd be dancing! The dress is lovely and the pockets were an added bonus!!

I guess I clean up well - people didn't recognize me all dressed up.
This dress fit as a size 4 perfectly. Had the weather been better I would not have had to wear tights, but luckily the dress still looked super cute with solid black tights.

simple but works
I wore this for a wedding early on in my pregnancy and it fit in all the right places but gave my belly enough room. simple and not that exciting, but if you add a fun necklace you can dress it up.

Simple and flattering
I rented this dress for a NYE party. the fit was true to size, though a bit tight in the bust if you are fuller in that area. Despite that, I was pretty comfortable in the dress all night. Unfortunately, I don't have any good full shot photos from the evening that really show the dress.

This LBD was a classic choice!
The material really dresses up this one. It's a classic LBD but has a great neckline and cut. I paired it with a statement necklace.

Simple, Little Black Dress
I liked the dress, but it was rather simple. Just a plain little black dress, which was what I wanted for the event I was attending. I dressed it up with the necklace that is on the model in the pic. It was a nice combination. Both the four and the six fit well. However, I wore the six because it fit longer than the four, as it went to just above my knees whereas the four went to about mid-thigh.

I wore stockings and a garter belt in lieu of pantyhose. Upon sitting dress rides up a little and would expose the lace but no biggie really

Love Love Loved this dress! I didn't want to return it!
Was a little tight in the bust but still comfortable. The pockets were very useful for keeping my phone and lip gloss handy. Also there were little straps that hooked around my bra straps and kept everything in place.

Perfect
This dress was perfect! It didn't arrive on time for the party due to weather delays (it was during a snow storm of course!), but that didn't stop me from trying it on and wearing it around the house a little ;) The top of the dress fit perfectly. I am curvy and have a small waist but some hips and ended up going with the size 8 since the dress hides the hips (amazing). I wish it would have arrived on time for my party, but it made me feel fabulous anyways!!!

I rented this as a back up dress previously and was sad to send it back without wearing it. I re-rented it and hated to not put it in my closet at the end of the night for future use!! Perfect LBD.

Super comfy yet flattering LBD!
I decided to rent this as a last resort for an "all black" bachelorette party and was pleasantly surprised. It was perfect for the occasion and I got so many compliments! The fabric has a sheen to it but I was able to dress it down with a chunky turquiose necklace and black espadrilles. The best part about this dress were the pockets!

Comfortable and loose in the mid-section. A tiny bit loose in shoulders but got well in the chest. Looks perfect with a statement necklace.

The dress was super comfortable.
I ordered a size 2 and 4. The size 2 was too small in the top. The 4 was a much better fit and was super comfy. If you are looking for a little black dress this is the one to go with.

I love this dress! Comfortable and easy to dance in.
This is the second dress that I have worn from rent the runway! I really like that you can wear the dress once and send it back. No need to go out and buy a dress you will only wear once. I loved this dress. It was true to size and easy to wear. I like the fact that it had pockets where I put my phone so I could take pictures throughout the night. I would recommend this dress to anyone. I would love to buy this dress of given the opportunity. I wore it to a wedding but I feel like with the right shoes and jewelry this could easily be dressed down for a more causal look.

I loved this dress! It was the perfect little black dress!
This was perfect for a wedding I recently went to. I got a lot of compliments on it, and the pockets are so convenient (finally...a place for my iphone!). I am normally a size 6, but had to wear the 8 because the bust was too tight (I am 34 C/D). I also love any dress that I can wear a normal bra with, so I was happy. The clips to keep your bra straps from showing were also very convenient. The dress was starting to show some wear, but only if you looked really closely. Overall, I was very happy with it. It was very flattering - gave just a little bit of cleavage and cut in at the waste nicely. I would definitely recommend it.

True to size. Loved the clasp to hold my bra strap in place! It was a little long on me (I'm 5'2) but nothing some hem tape wouldn't fix. This dress was comfortable, fun, and easy to accessorize. I loved wearing it!

Worked for a LBD at a bachelorette
Wore this for a bachelorette. I had to get a bigger size to accommodate my hips, so the bust area was a little large. I ended up wearing a strapless bra with extra padding so it fit pretty good. A couple times the straps feel onto my shoulders, but it was minor. I enjoyed the dress!
