Loved this dress!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Overall this dress was perfect! Loved all the lace and the open back added a sexy feel. The length was perfect on me but I'm short (5'2''). The only problem with this dress was that the buttons in the back kept unsnapping so I had to safety pin it closed. Great dress! Would definitely rent this one again!

I did not wear this dress.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I was unable to wear this dress as the buttons at the top near the neckline popped anytime a bent my shoulders forward. This was unfortunate as I loved the look and the backless option. Another note is that this dress is very mini, a bit too short for a wedding. If you are over 5'7" plan to purchase panty hose that don't show the black portion near the top.

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
the sleeves were a little tight but overall it fit great. I had to safety-pin the back where it snaps because they weren't very secure and I didn't want to have to worry all night. I didn't ware a bra because of the open back so I recommend doing this just to be safe.

Always more than satisfied with a RTR dress!

Overall fit: True to Size

They aren't lieing when they say the sleeves are a bit snug no matter what size you wear. While it is hard to find a happy medium with both comfortable arms and a nice fit throughout the rest of the dress, it is totally worth the tight feel! I really liked this dress, and especially the open back feature it offered. Add a statement necklace to complete and you're set!

December evening wedding at an old, elegant hotel in Baltimore.

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The back latch was a little loose as the thread was pulled and almost detached. I noticed this the night before so I was able to adjust it a bit. The dress itself did not stretch or give any so it was a little tight across my bust but it didn't affect the fit too much and wasn't noticeable. As a short girl, the length was perfect. A couple of inches above my knees.

An amazing night with amazing friends!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was amazing! It fit great and I got a ton of compliments. It fit pretty true to size but was a little short. I am usually a 4 but wore the 6 to give myself the little bit of extra length. Also, one of the neck snaps on the 4 wouldn't stay snapped so the 6 was just the better choice for me.

I wore this dress for the Tartan Ball :) I got the necklace to match and it was a total hit. The sleeves were a little on the tight side due to the lace but I could dance in comfort and not worry about anything. I had to safety pin the one button because it kept coming loose but that was no big deal :) I received so many compliments and everybody was asking where I got my gorgeous dress from! I told them Rent The Runway :) Wish I didn't have to send it back :)

I rented this dress for my daughter for a formal event

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
She loved the fit! It wasn't skin tight so she couldn't breath, but it fit her body like a glove. She said the arms are very tight, but it wasn't bothering her the whole night. My only complaint was that the buttons in the back tended to pop open, we had to safety pin it closed. Other than that, it was a perfect dress and very comfortable!

Fun birthday dress!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
I rented the 4 and 6. I ended up wearing the 4. I loved this dress but I have to it was a bit short for me at 5'8". The 6 didn't afford much more length and looked too big and boxy at the waist. I wore this dress for a birthday dinner so it worked. But if it had been too and event where I was dancing and lifting my arms up a lot, it may not have worked as well! I added a pop of color with the Kate Spade Pink Hot Chip Necklace.

The snap on the very top is useless.

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I put this dress on and loved the fit of it from the chest down. As soon as I snapped the top snap and then moved a centimeter, it would just pop off. The snap seemed like it had been very worn down, and unfortunately did not want to stay snapped. I would have loved to have worn this dress! I received it on a Tuesday night for a Saturday night event, and it gave me plenty of time to return it back to RTR. I can't say enough great things about RTR customer service. They immediately sent me a replacement dress and also sent me a free accessory for having to stress about getting a dress in time. I'm writing this review on a Friday morning, I received the replacement dress last night and will wear it to my event tomorrow.

"Best dressed"

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I was hesitant to choose this dress because I was afraid it would be too "simplistic" - as I've worn black lace before. However, make no mistake -- this dress is anything but simplistic. It's fun and comfortable and sexy all at the same time. I got multiple compliments on it and was told by a girl I've never met that she thought I was "best dressed" at the wedding. I wish I got a photo of the back of this dress because it is by far the best part. I normally wear a 6 so the fit is pretty spot on. Keep in mind that you may want to figure out your strapless bra options ahead of time (I chose to wear one, although a bra isn't 100% necessary with this dress).

I really loved this dress!. The lace sleeves are a little tight and the snap to keep the back closed was almost useless! I was able to have a friend pin it in a way that you could not see the pin and the dress would stay on even when dancing! I got a ton of compliments and everyone wanted to know where I got the dress!! Oh, and you will need a stick on bra because it has literally no support!

The dress fit was true to size! This dress was great quality and was not too big or too small it was just right. The only negative would be the snaps at the top of the dress would not stay so I had to safety pin them together which worked perfectly. My boyfriend was sad I had to return it. I had a great first experience with RTR and I can't wait to rent another!!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I ordered this for a wedding. It didn't look like the dress in the picture and I think it looks a lot different from the review pictures and mine. The 2 had an awkward fit, making me look like I had hips but the 4 fit in the body but it gaped in the backless dress so I had to wear the 2. I felt uncomfortable the whole night :( I've rented better dresses before.

Fit was amazing, I thought it may be loose or boxy looking, but it had a spandex feel to it that really shows off your shape. I was absolutely in love with the back. With the fitted underslip, no bra needed. It was a little short, but I also have long legs and my hubby loved it. The conservative top gave it a nice balance of classy and sexy!

This dress runs true to size. I got a 4 and 6 just in case the 4 didn't fit, but it fit like a glove! The arms weren't tight at all, I had plenty of room to move around. I got compliments all night! The dress was absolutely gorgeous! The buttons in the back of the dress do pop very easily! Nothing a safety pin couldn't fix :) I will be renting from here again!

Solid dress for a winter wedding (but invest in double-sided tape and a pin)

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress to a December wedding. Not my favorite rental from RTR, but it worked for what I needed it for. I was between sizes and ended up going with the smaller size for a more fitted look; unfortunately that meant that the back had a hard time staying where it needed to. I used double-sided tape to hold it in place, and I think this is a must for this dress unless it just happens to fit you perfectly. I also had the same problem as several other reviewers with the back closure coming undone very easily. I had to pin it together.

Gorgeous lace dress!

Size worn: 0

This dress is beautiful but runs a tad small. The open back makes the dress. It's just sexy enough to be appropriate for most occasions. The top comes together with two snaps which come apart with any movement, so I had to use a safety pin to hold it in place. Overall, I liked the dress and would rent it again.

Size worn: 4

I wore this dress for a wedding. I usually wear a 6 or a 4. The 4 was very tight and a little short but I was able to go bra less with some spanx which I never ever do. The 6 was a little more loose. I could have worn either size. I had no trouble with the buttons fastening in the back. I probably should have used the double sided tape for the back but did not want to be constricted while dancing.

I was hosting an engagement party and this dress worked perfectly!! The dress ran true to size. I ended up wearing a nubra although I could of gone without and would of been fine. Like others have stated the snaps at the top would not stay closed but a safety pin took care of that problem! I wore stockings because it was freezing out but the dress was short so the black tights helped with that issue as well! Overall I felt beautiful and got a lot of compliments and everyone was asking where I got the dress! Of course I said RTR!

Size worn: 10
Rented for: Party
The open back is sexy! Other reviews said the back top bottoms don't stay snapped, so I brought safety pins along. Need them! Both sizes fit but went with the 10 for a little extra length. The dress is hot and fun! Just bring safety pins and if you are a tall girl wear tights!
