Very comfortable and pretty design
Overall I liked this dress, but i didn't realize the back is kind of open so it was a bit hard finding a bra to wear with it. Also the detail it has in the boob area makes it look a litle weird. I really liked the sleeve and length of the dress!

Huge in the waist
Not the best fit for a true hourglass. The arms fit decently, probably too tight a size down (unavailable). At least 8" extra fabric in the waist. Really loved the style and the coverage, but either the dress had been stretched out at the waist or it just wasn't the right cut for me.

Wore this dress for a wedding rehearsal dinner and received a lot of great compliments!
This dress is really comfortable and while I was able to wear the smaller size, the bigger one was not that far off in sizing around the waste. The shoulders and arms had more room so if you are thinking that you need to cover up your arms or want to have room there, I'd go for the bigger size. The flair is not too overwhelming which worried me at first thinking I would look larger with the flair, but it was lovely. Also the dress has pockets which made for a nice touch.

The dress looked great on me and I don't know if I've ever received so many compliments before.
For the most part the dress fit great. Because I'm short, It was a little big up top. I kept having to adjust it and the straps for hanging kept coming out. The sleeves are actually very tight so that might be a problem for some. However, the dress was beautiful and was perfect for the occasion. It was extremely comfortable, I had no problem dancing and the low back gave great ventilation.

AMAZING! This was my first experience with RTR and it won't be my last.
Dress was perfect for the occasion. I was a guest at the wedding of my husband's boss's daughter and I wanted to look polished but not overdone. The dress came on time and fit like a glove. It was very comfortable as well. Got tons of compliments. This site is brilliant! Which I had found it sooner. Can't wait to rent something else.

Didn't end up wearing this.
Although I went with another dress for my event, I loved this dress. It fit well and had great texture. I would wear if for a winter event, long sleeves are too warm for this mild October were having.

I felt fabulous.
I loved this dress. I wore it to a work-related black tie event. I kept the accessories simple: a sterling silver choker and simple dangly silver earrings; sparkly black pumps. As others have noted, it has wonderful pockets, and can be worn with a regular bra. The only odd thing was the ballooning of the fabric above the hem; it doesn't show that in the official photo. Perhaps the cleaning process stretched the skirt fabric a bit. Still, I got tons of compliments on it.

Great dress
I wore this to a wedding. It was beautiful. The length of the dress was to just above my knees. I really liked how the back was cut lower. The bottom was as shinier then I thought! But still loved it

Beautiful fabric
I tend to choose A-line or full skirts because of my wider hips. This dress was beautiful but possibly too full. The front has fewer pleats than the back. My husband thought it was too "puffy." But, the skirt fabric is so gorgeous that I wore it anyway. The waist was a bit higher than I would have liked. Perfect for a shorter waisted person. The sleeves were really long, just like on the model.

Ah. May. Zing!
This dress was awesome, I wish I could wear it everyday! :D I wore it to my sisters rehearsal dinner. I am normally a 10 and this fit perfect. Even though the back has a beautiful V, I was still able to wear a normal bra! The sleeves were a bit long but they had zippers that could make them tighter or flare out. I kept them long and made them flare! The pockets were most definitely the best part! I was able to hold all my stuff and still be hands free all day and night! It hit all the right spots and was a perfect length for me being so short! Definitely rent this dress, you won't regret it!

This dress fit perfectly - had the right amount of shine for the office and a wedding.
The fit was great - since my arms are a bit chubby, it did the job of hiding those. It was conservative enough that I wore it to a fashion client's office for a meeting, but flashy enough that I also wore it to a wedding. The flare on the skirt is super fun. Definitely recommend.

SO comfortable. LOVED this dress
Length was perfect. It was SO comfy. LOVE that it had pockets!!! Only very minor downside is the sleeves are a bit long but still worked out just perfect for the wedding I went to. The 10 was almost a perfect fit and I would say true to size. I wore the 12 because the top part of arms were a little tight but I have larger arms.

Loved it!
I loved this dress. It fit perfectly. I was a little nervous about the sleeves because it seems like a lot of dresses the sleeves are too small these days. It was a little snug when I first put it on but was comfortable the rest of the night. Perfect for curvy girls, I felt slim and confident! Many compliments throughout the evening. My only complaint is that the bottom was very wrinkled. I tried steaming it per the RTR instructions, but I didn't have much luck. My husband said it looked like it was made to be that way but from the pictures I don't think that was true. No one seemed to notice and I still really liked the dress.

Theia dresses are amazing!
This is my third Theia rental and once again it did not disappoint. This dress was gorgeous. I could have gone with the size 4 but wore the size 6 just for a little more comfort. The material of the skirt is shiny and has a little bit of tulle underneath to keep it very full.

Was the PERFECT dress for a fall wedding in downtown BOSTON! :)
The fit was REALLY great! The full skirt helped to hide my little preggers belly. The arms were a little tight (Not unbearable), but I'm sure that is because I have super athletic arms... I kept it simple with accessories, but honestly; the dress was perfect with a simple hair style, and black strappy heels. I felt incredibly stunning, and my husband thought it was a beautiful dress!!

I rented this dress for the biggest event of my career thus far and the compliments kept coming!
This dress fit like it was made for me. As other reviewers stated, I wish I could've bought this dress versus mailing it back to RTR. Our cocktail event was held in an airplane hangar in October so I wanted something that would keep me warm and it did just that. As one of the event coordinators, the pockets were perfect for holding notes, etc... The highlight though was having other guests stop me all night long! I even had one husband approach me for his wife who was embarrassed to ask where I bought my dress. I shared my little RTR secret with him and he exclaimed "I told my wife there has to be somewhere she rent cool dresses!" I cannot say enough about this dress' fit, quality fabric, and uniqueness. I'm a new, proud fan of RTR!

Perfect dress for a fall wedding. Love the long sleeves!
This dress fit perfectly true to size. I am tall and don't like dresses to be too short...this dress was the perfect length on me. I would definitely wear it again...and so would lots of girls at the wedding where I wore it. So many people asked me about it and how they could rent it for events they had coming up! Another RTR success!

This dress is FANTASTIC. I got so many compliments, and it was SO comfy! The pockets are the best!
I am 5'7", and the length was right at my knees. The sleeves were a little long, but that wasn't a big deal. The sleeves also have small zippers on them that you don't really see in these pictures. The zipper in the back got hung up a little where the fabric changes, but I've seen many dresses do that. Overall, perfect dress for a wedding, and I didn't even have to take a purse because the pockets were so deep!

I rented this dress for a fall wedding and it was perfect!
I love this dress, it was my first rent experience with RTR. I felt beautiful and I was confortable the whole night. It runs true to size and I like the knee length and long sleeves. I would definitely rent again from RTR. I was a little worry about the not so good reviews in the facebook page, but now I can say and have my own opinion and my experience with RTR was great, can't complain. I am a happy new costumer.

Lovely dress for work or cocktail!
This was a dress I ended up wearing to work but it ended up being a smudge too dressy and it would have made a lively winter cocktail dress. It has gorgeous long sleeves, a hint of shine, and pockets!

Great for Chillier Fall Wedding
If 3.5 stars was an option, I would give it that instead of just a 3 for these reasons: Pros: 1) Material looks nice 2) Fit and Flare style is perfect for pear shaped bodies 3) Long Sleeves is great for outdoor fall wedding 4) Appropriate Length (I'm 5'8") 5) Received several compliments Cons: 1) Very little stretch in the top part (or at all). 2) I normally can wear size 4 in this fit and flare style since I'm pear shaped - and I DID wear the size 4, however it was really tight. The size 6 was also tight and I would have worn the 6, but there were two issues with the size 6 dress that I received: the bottom skirt part would not lay correctly and was awkwardly poofy and looked like it had been laying in a pile for days. I tried ironing/steaming it, but it would still not lay right. The second issue was the seams had fallen on on BOTH of the bottom part of the sleeves, so it did not look good. 3) I could have worn the 8 probably - so size up, ladies! 4) Not sure it was worth the $100 rental given all of these issues.

This fit me perfectly, even through the arms. The sleeves have zippers, which I was thankful for when the dancing started. I got tons of compliments!

Perfect dress for winter wedding!
I loved this dress! It was elegant and feminine with the shape of the skirt and the V in the back. I was nervous that the V would be too low but it wasn't and I was able to wear a regular bra. It was very comfortable and got a lot of compliments!

I wore this dress to our local Symphony Guild's annual fundraiser.
I adored this dress! I typically wear a size 2 and this dress fit beautifully. I especially liked the material used in the bodice. It was so comfortable. The sleeves were long enough, reaching just past my wrists which is where I like my sleeves to reach. They also have a small zipper in each which I found to be an unusual, but lovely feature. I have often been cold during winter time formal festivities, but even with the deep V back I was comfortably warm. I attribute that to the bodice material. I received many compliments!

Like others mentioned, the arms were a bit tight. I toggle between a 4 and 6 and the 6 fit me perfectly. Was at an outdoor winter wedding and wore with black tights - fit perfect for the occasion! The pockets are a great touch, too.

Comfortable dress with pockets
The length was perfect to wear to a wedding. I wore opaque stockings to match the thicker, long sleeves, and I wore black booties. The higher waist of the skirt was flattering and I received compliments all night.

Cute dress, however the arms were slim, as others reported in their description. I didn'tt wear
the arms for this dress are very slim and skinny. If you have heavy, muscular or thick arms, get a back up to be sure.

Wore dress to a back tie optional business event. Adding the bold necklace gave it that extra touch.
Top of dress fit beautifully! The sleeves and back were extremely flattering. The bottom of dress was very pretty but not sure if the bulkiness above the hem was on purpose or just because it has been worn a lot. It was perfect for the event and the bold accessories gave the top that extra pop! So glad I found RTW - I love renting different dresses for all the occasions I have to attend for work and pleasure!

Very comfortable and flattering; pockets held all the essentials. Would definitely rent again
I wanted to cut off the little fabric hanging straps as they kept revealing themselves. There was a small pull in the top but it didn't seem to be noticeable to anyone but me. Lots of compliments. SO comfortable to wear,

This dress couldn't have been more perfect!!!
I wore this to a wedding in San Francisco and it couldn't have been a more perfect fit on me and for the weather. The dress was true to size. The sleeves were a bit long but that was no big deal as there's a zipper to make them loose bell like or fitted. I loved the boat neck front and the v back isn't too deep, you can still wear a bra. The pockets were an obviously plus. The only con: when it arrived the skirt was quite wrinkled and there was nothing I could do to remedy that.

The perfect dress for a holiday party!
This dress was awesome for my fiance's holiday party. I felt great in it, flattering fit for anybody, plus pockets!!! I received a lot of compliments. A perfectly classy dress pared with tights, booties and a statement necklace. I usually wear a 4 but the 4 in this dress was really tight on my shoulders. I am an athletic build... so if you are similar just keep that in mind. Other than that I LOVED this dress!

I loved this dress! My first RTR experience, and I'll definitely rent again. I wore it for a winter wedding, but this would be a perfect holiday dress too. It was so beautiful in person, and I felt comfortable all night. Got a ton of compliments! Loved the low V in the back. Very flattering and true to size.

Great idea- but not flattering.
I loved the idea of this dress- long sleeves for a winter wedding. I am a size 6 pretty much across the board. They only had a 6 (no backup 8 was available) and it was tight. It zipped and looked okay, but I thought it really cut my mid-section in half and was not at all flattering. I do wonder if the 8 would have looked better because my belly was bulging a bit and I found the look really not flattering. Was very disappointed.

I did my first Rent the Runway with this dress for a NYE wedding.
I say this is true to size but I would say it is between true to size and runs small. I typically wear between a 0-2 for dresses and there was no way the 0 was getting on my arms or zipped up the back. The size 2 was a bit snug (I needed someone to help zip it up) but comfortable once on. I didn't have much more room however or it wouldn't of fit. I didn't realize it had deep pockets so that was a nice surprise! It was a great length for my short 5'2 frame as I was concerned it would hit below my knees but it hit a few inches above. Overall it was great for a winter wedding with the long sleeves keeping me warm but still festive with the designed skirt and cut-out back.

The dress!
I loved this dress, one thing to note is that the waist is a little tighter than normal, but the arms were very long and loose. I would have worn the 4, but the arms made it look way too big for me. Overall, I loved the dress and got tons of compliments when I wore it to a rehearsal dinner.

This was perfect for a surprise birthday party at a Chicago club. Loved the dress.
I ordered both the size 4 and size 6, but the size 4 didn't come due to another person returning it late or damaged. The size 6 fit but would have preferred the 4. It was fun and flirty and the pockets were totally killer for a night out. I could stick my phone and a lip gloss in there and be ready to go. Very comfortable and could wear it all night without tugging on it or pulling it down or up. Great dress. Wish I had somewhere to wear it again.

Classy dress that was faltering.
Fits true to size. Nice length for workboat conservative crowd. Great for a winter wedding or party. The only disappointing part was that the skirt did not lay nicely in front. It kept going in between my legs instead of poofing outward. I tried steaming it, but that didn't help.
