Elegant and classy
Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
After reading a previous review of this dress that listed it as like a "choir robe", I admit that I was a tad apprehensive when I received this gown and initially saw a sea of heavy blue cloth (indeed, just like the choir robes of childhood memory). However, when I put it on, I realized that the gown absolutely delivers. I wore this for a Valentine's Day black-tie affair. It's classy without verging on dowdy. It's elegant without edging on pretentious. It's the perfect dress to wear to a black tie event without looking like you put too much effort or are "over the top" (so key in Washington DC). I got a slew of compliments on the dress (and the necklace pairing from J Crew) and felt like a veritable socialite in the dress, paired with my boyfriend in his tuxedo. There are some contradictory reviews on the length too - I'm 5'4" and wore 4 inch heels and the 2L fit but was much, much too long. The 4R was a tad looser but a good length for a girl my height with heels. Hope you enjoy this dress as much as I did!!

The navy was a HIT at the ball. The belt and one shoulder made it so chic. LOVED IT

The length was perfect and the fabric was to die for. I give it a 10.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This dress drapes beautifully, but the fit is a little funny. It bunched a little in the hips and it was tough to find undergarments that wouldn't be visible. I was able to wear it to my friend's wedding reception and received several compliments. I sized up in this dress. I am average height, but in 4 inch heels, this dress was just a tad short. Overall, I really did love this dress. Just a few little tweaks would have made it perfect.

Beautiful color, very elegant and lady-like.
Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The color and cut/draping of the dress is really lovely, the fabric is so luxe. I think it can be a bit volumizing to hourglass types. I am busty but I have a small waist. I had to size up to an 8 when I'm normally a 4 or 6. I was forewarned about the bust thanks to other reviews and was very glad I sized up, the 6 fit everywhere but I couldn't zip the bust. For that reason the waist was too roomy and looked a bit bulky in photos. Nevertheless it was a perfect wedding dress - elegant and chic, not too sexy.

The experience was fantastic from beginning to end. There is nothing better than hearing that you look stunning, thank you, you have a customer for life.

This dress was beautiful, gorgeous color, probably should have gone up a size but they didn't have the next size up so I gave the 4R a shot, really enjoyed the whole shopping experience and process as well, very well thought out, this will be my first thought for the next event.

Met Mercedes and Santana from Glee and Barbra Streisand was there!
Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Nice to wear an elegant dress that was a different color than the sea of black. VERY comfortable fabric and not a tight fit, so every bump or bulge doesn't show. Wear the tape they send to tape up side where there isn't a sleeve, it was a little big on me there so it would have helped. Would be best for a tall person because it's a lot of fabric. I'm 5'9 1/2". Loved it. Recommend it! I wouldn't wear a necklace, would take away from dress. Big sparkly earrings and bracelet!

Rent the runway rocks!
Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress I had ordered was too long. So, I called a stylist and they overnighted 2 other dresses for the next day. This was the dress. It fit perfectly, and the length was too. I can't wait to use this service again.

Amazing color and draping on this gown. Very flattering and comfortable.
Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
True to the reviews, this gown was small in bust, so if you have a larger ribcage and/or chest size, order one size up. I'm glad I ordered the 4L. My heels were 5" and would have been too tall for the regular length. I accessorized with mint green jewel drop earrings and a sapphire/mint cuff. It made the dress modern and young.

Gorgeous shape and lux silk in a rich color
Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I loved wearing this dress! It was something different and worked perfectly for an early spring black tie wedding. The dress was snug in all the right places (under the arm, waist, bum) and being able to cinch it with the belt made the fit extra-perfect. I love Alice Temperley's feminine, sophisticated and fun silhouettes. All-around winner.

Beautiful on trend color. Elegant cut.
Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I absolutely loved the color! The dress was a little tight over my 32A chest and ribs, yet too big through my hips. Also, I wore a 4R which ended up hitting the top of my feet without shoes and showing my ankles. I had to wear flats ( I found some navy patent the same color as dress to kind of blend with the dress). The 4L was unavailable or I definitely would have worn the long. I really wasn't going to wear this dress because of it being too short, but my husband really disliked the backup dress. If you are 5'4 or taller, I would definitely choose the long. I felt the short length made it look frumpy.

Ended up wearing another Rent The Runway Gown instead.
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was not for me. I knew it as soon as I opened the bag. It felt like a choir robe and was not flattering. It runs very small and was not able to zip it up all the way. Glad I had a backup dress from rent the runway that worked perfectly!

Dreamy dress
Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This is such a gorgeous gown! The material is so silky and drapes beautifully, very comfortable. I wore it to a benefit, and it was a hit. I read the other reviews and made sure to size up---I usually wear between a 2 and 4. With the side zip (which is always tougher to zip for me because of my large rib cage and swimmer's shoulders) I decided to go 4R and 6R. The 4 didn't zip, the 6R was a little roomy but it still looked fantastic. The length was perfect, I'm 5'4" and wore 1 1/2" heels that looked like they were hemmed to go with the dress. Highly recommend!

Perfect dress for a black tie
Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I loved, LOVED this gown! The color is perfect for a pale lass such as myself, and the fabric is a good-quality, medium weight satin. It hangs well and doesn't wrinkle too easily. I'd recommend that anyone who is on the borderline between sizes order up - I'm a 6 in most clothes, but I could barely zip the dress up around my bust (I'm a D.) Also, if you're tall the long will not hit the ground in heels - the long size on me hit around my arches.

beautiful, but torso small
Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This is a lovely dress. This runs a bit small in the bustline. I'm not particularly large (34c) not overweight - but couldn't zip up the torso (hips were fine). Since the size up wasn't available, I couldn't wear it and went with a second dress I'd rented as backup. Wish I could've though!
