My original pick was damaged, so RTR sent me this back up within one day and it was a perfect fit!

This dress hugs every curve but remains classy for any wedding or formal event. The fabric has a little bit of a stretch and the length was similar to a midi for petites. I would rent this again!

I wore this for an awards ceremony for during the day.

It fit beautifully. Sexy but ok to wear to work. I had to wear a cami with it but only because it was during the day. At night I would have just worn it as is. It was firm fitting but not tight. I needed a purple dress for this event and this was perfect. I got lots of compliments.

Vibrant color, great fit.

Loved this dress! Color was vibrant, it hugged all the right curves and stayed in place while dancing. I couldn't have asked for a better dress.

Unforgettable and so classy!

The dress fit wonderful, the small was a bit too loose all-over. The color was vibrant and so fun. Dress was very comfortable and got so many compliments! Also for a V neck it was not too low cut!

Perfect for a semifinal work function

This was my first RTR and I was thrilled. Rented for a conservative work party- but the shape made me still feel beautiful and not old/boring.

Great dress for a night out!

Great dress and fit! I love that it has some flex in it. I have a petite upper body and legs with muscle and it worked nicely on both levels.

Beautiful color and fit.

I wore this in NYC to a concert to support and friend. It was a perfect fit! Didn't have to wear a bra or spanx as it seems to have built in support. May end up buying this one!

Beautiful color!

Loved this dress! It's about the 10th one I've rented and they always impress. Nice material that isn't cheap looking and a beautiful purple color. This was perfect for the outdoor ceremony but inside reception. Easy to dance in :)

Gorgeous dress!

This dress was simply beautiful. I wore it for my birthday outing downtown and it was a hit. Vibrant color, not too long, not too short, can go with or without a bra (I went without). The dress also has some stretch in it which makes it all the more comfortable. Would definitely rent this dress again!

Comfortable and unique color

I thought this was comfortable and easy to dance in. I liked the color, different than everyone else. I am 5 10" and it was a great length. It did ride up a bit but I was ok with it.

Amazing dress! Very flattering.

I'm a 36DD and trying to find dresses that fit in the bust and are flattering is very difficult. The color was great and I got compliments on the dress all night.

Form fitting

My immediate reaction when I put on this dress was feeling sexy and confident. I wore it to a wedding with a slip and I was a little concerned throughout the night about pulling it down and sucking it in. The dress is a beautiful deep purple and has delicate lace details but be prepared that it hugs every curve.

Received so many compliments!

The dresses arrived and the purple lace is so vibrant. I have a "post baby" mom belly pooch (that I can't get rid of after 6 years) and due to the nude layer, this dress will show some of the bulges. I wore shapewear under the dress, which did the trick! I liked the thick straps as you can wear a normal bra. I received so many compliments on the dress. Even my sister-Inlaw and cousin asked if they could borrow my dress! I told them, of course they can borrow from "Rent the Runway" :)

This dress runs true to size. The color is beautiful and it has some give so it's great for moving around in even though it hugs your curves. I loved the color too.

Pretty color & comfortable

Loved the color more in person. Fit really comfortably. Love the neckline too. W a large chest, it didn't show too much cleavage

MelodySeptember 8, 2016
I am a bit larger than you in overall body size as I am an 8. But you mentioned large chest, Would you believe that it would work with DDD chest and still be appropriate for a daytime wedding?

Beautiful color

The dress fit great!! It hugs in all the right places, very form fitting. Lots of stretch, made of nylon and spandex. The color is much nicer in person. Beautiful bold purple. I received a size S and M and went with the S because it fit better, the M was more loose fitting. This dress was sent overnight as a backup and I actually preferred this one over the one I originally wanted. It's very comfortable, easy to move in and I received many compliments. I would definitely recommend this to anyone of any shape and size!

Dress was super comfy (material was stretchy, but thick enough to hide flaws). Overall, I thought it was classy with a touch of sex appeal. Boyfriend loved it. Color is really pretty in person!

Purple Tie Affair

Rented for a formal fundraising event, purple tie affair. Was fun and comfortable. True to size and stretchy. The only Weird thing I would comment on are the sleeves, they are in between sleeveless and caped sleeves. Otherwise it was perfect for the event I attended.

Beautiful dress

I rented this for a work holiday party. I loved the color. It fit great too. It was comfortable the entire evening. Easy to move around in. I am short (5'3") and it hit right above my knees. Perfect length. I highly recommend this dress. So pretty.

Bright and sexy

The dress was still a little large around the hip area. It was tight but not uncomfortable. Breathable and a gorgeous color. It was a little long for my taste but it was perfect for a family/formal affair

I am an 8-10 in size with a DDD chest. Looks like we are about the same in our chest. Which my frame being a bit larger than yours, would you recommend this dress for a daytime wedding and it not being too much cleavage?

Amazing fit

I rented this as a back up for the night and ended up loving it more than the other one! This was a nice fit and not too long. ( I'm short so most are too long) It was good fabric not too thin not too thick. I would rent this again.

Stunning dress, fun & flattering!

I'll just say that if you are at all considering renting this dress, you should definitely go for it! I had two separate weddings in one weekend and this dress did double-duty just wonderfully. I couldn't have been happier! It has just the right amount of curve-hugging stretchiness without being at all tight or binding. And the color speaks for itself, definitely an attention-getter. Another wedding guest came up to me and said that whenever she goes to a wedding, she always picks out her favorite guest dress, and that I was the winner that night. Great dress for dancing, and I even hula-hooped in it at one of the weddings. I normally wear a size 6, but the Small dress was just a wee bit snug; it was great to have the free backup size because the Medium fit perfectly. This was my first time using RTR and it was so easy... I'll definitely be a repeat customer!
