I wore this while I was 5 weeks pregnant with twins and it was so comfy!!
It was a little tight on the waist but it could have been because I was pregnant. It hid my belly nicely and I felt so beautiful!

Fun and whimsical while also conservative
The bodice was a little tighter than I expected (normally I wear a 4), but the length was extremely appropriate.

First rental post-pregnancy, and this dress did not disappoint! Felt beautiful and confident!
Thanks again to the customer support people at RTR—my original rental was not available in either size, so after letting them know this was my first rental post-pregnancy, they helped me search for a replacement and style my outfit. LOVED this! It accentuated my smallest parts and hid my post-baby belly. The fabric was a little stiff, but not in a bad way—just sturdy. I liked it. Received many compliments throughout the night!

Holiday Party
Wore this to a holiday party. Had to steam it before wearing. Dress hit just above my knee. The bodice was a bit large at the waist and the belt cinched in the extra material, which then made the front of the dress wrinkled. Would have preferred to have a smaller size and skip the belt. Overall was a cute dress but a little conservative for my taste. Would be great for a work holiday party.

Feels like a million bucks!
The 8 was still a bit snug on the hip but it was stunning! It wasn't uncomfortable and the dress has enough structure that it didn't look like I was trying to squeeze in. The texture and shape of the dress are both fantastic.

I loved this dress, very comfortable and stylish!
This was my emergency backup as there weren't many options left and I loved it! I listened to the other reviews about how it had no stretch and ran a little small so I ordered a 6 which fit perfectly! With the belt pulled to fit my waist it bunched the material a little but it wasn't noticeable. The material is great and the pattern is really cute!

Wore the size 4 and got many compliments!
Rented this dress in a 4 and 6. I'm typically in between sizes and figures the 6 would be the better option but to my surprise the 6 was smaller than the 4! Wore the 4 even though it was a bit snug. I couldn't even get the 6 to zip! I'm assuming sizing error. Thank goodness I got 2 dresses!

This dress was stunning and unique, I got compliments all night long!
I originally rented a different dress that didn't fit and was able to swap it out for this dress at the Georgetown store. The material is a bit stiff and a little heavy, but the dress is beautifully constructed and the fit is incredibly flattering, especially if you have a booty! The dress also has pockets, which is perfect for a wedding, and the pattern is a fun change from the classic LBD. Everyone from the parents of the groom, to family friends, to the wedding coordinators complimented me on the dress. The back is a little low, but I was still able to wear a regular bra (just had to loosen the straps a bit and had my husband on "bra patrol" to make sure it wasn't peaking out throughout the night).

Perfect dress - with pockets!
I am in love with this dress, I wish I could keep it! I got this as a replacement for a dress that was damaged. So glad I did! The dress is super comfortable, and has pockets to keep my cell phone and lip balm close all night. I loved that this was a LBD but with a twist. I wasn't able to wear a regular bra with this, but a strapless worked just fine. Got so many compliments!

Perfect dress for a silent auction
This was the perfect dress for a silent auction fundraising event that I helped plan. I was afraid of the dress being too long on me, but it hit me right at the knee. Extremely flattering fit, especially for someone like me that's on the curvy side. I received tons of compliments. Will definitely rent again.

I wore this dress to a long time family friend's wedding in October.
Initially, I had trouble with zipping it all the way up since me shoulders are broader, however, I unfortunately (or fortunately) forgot my strapless bra (since bra straps show in the back) and wearing it braless allowed me to zip it completely. After that, it fit like a glove. The retro neckline was awesome; I felt so elegant and fun, great for dancing! The colors are great for a fall and/or winter event.

I wore this to a red carpet benefit that I hosted and felt very elegant and comfortable.
I ordered the 10 and the 12 for back up. I wore the 12 because the 10 was tight in the ribcage area. I loved how the 12 fit. I got tons of compliments.

fun dress, great pattern, flattering but tight
The dress has no stretch so it felt tight. I probably should have ordered the 6 but it wasn't available. The fabric is really beautiful and I received tons of compliments, even though I could barely breathe.

This dress fit like a glove - great for larger bust. Wore to a black tie optional wedding. Was a little concerned about not being in a long dress but the pattern really made up for that. Got lots of compliments all night!

Beautiful dress, great fabric, gold-color pops
I rented this dress to attend a wedding. When it arrived the dress was in perfect condition, the fabric was a bit thicker than I anticipated, but it was perfect. It was a very comfortable dress for sitting and dancing the night away.I received many compliments throughout the night. The gold was very shiny and was perfect for the venue/wedding setting. Would highly recommend and would rent again.

RTR ran out of a outfit I originally ordered and sent me this one in place and I'm glad they did!
This is such a cute fit for someone short like myself. Perfect length for a wedding event. I felt like an 50s housewife and I loved it!

I received SO many complements on this dress. The fit was perfect and the gold elevated the style.
I wore this dress to a wedding in Arizona last weekend. Though the material was a bit thick for the 100* weather, the fit was snug yet comfortable and the length was perfect. With the high neckline in front, I was thankful for the lower back to balance it out. The material is structured enough to go braless and maintains the darted full skirt. I wore my own belt (a thin black leather belt with a gold hardware clasp) to add a bit of my own style. I also splurged on gold drop earrings and a bracelet (and went without a necklace). The 2 fit me in the Soho store but the 4 was more comfortable - especially in the arm holes. I have a long, straight torso and this dress gave me a skinny waistline! I received an overabundance of complements and felt so pretty and regal. I would totally rent this dress again.

So many compliments and so comfortable.
I wore this dress to a wedding and it was a hit. I got so many compliments on it and I felt so elegant in it. The dress fit me like a glove and hid my post baby pouch. It was comfortable and so great to have pockets to keep my lip gloss and ID without having to carry a clutch. I was able to wear a normal thin bra without it showing.

RTR to the rescue!
This was one of the backup dresses RTR sent when my original dress was damaged. Absolutely gorgeous. Comfortable with a full skirt. The black and gold is a bit "flashy" but looks great with black accessories. Will definitely other styles from this desIgner. Very nice quality.

Formal and fun and very comfy.
I did a reading at my friend's wedding and wanted to be formal but still comfortable since I had to get up in front of 200 strangers. I'm busty but it was such a great combination of structured and comfortable that I didn't need to wear a bra. I have narrow hips and the full skirt perfectly balanced out my shoulders. It's perfect for top heavy gals. And it has pockets so I could dance all night and keep my phone nearby without sacrificing my wine glass!

New Years Eve + a wedding? Fantastically fun and fancy evening!
This dress fit like a dream for the most part. I have a smaller waist and a larger bottom, so the style worked with my shape beautifully. As other reviewers have mentioned, it runs a little snug. I ordered both a 10 (my normal size) and a 12 and the 12 was far too big to wear. The 10 worked just fine! I got a lot of compliments on the dress and many people asked if I had lost weight! Ha - major perk! :) This dress is perfect for a fun event like a NYE wedding or any other fancier party. You will get noticed!

Overall, I really enjoyed this dress. I absolutely loved the fact that it had pockets and the length was just what I was looking for. My only concern was that the bust was a little tight. If you are a D or larger, you should consider going up a size.

Great look!
I needed a dress for a friend's wedding at a social club in nyc that was just a step below black tie. This dress was perfect for that evening. I got the 2 and 4 and I definitely needed the 4- go a size up. The neckline is pretty high and the bust area a bit tight when zipped up. The dress flares out at the natural waist and its a heavier material. I received many compliments on it and had a blast that evening.

Compliments all night!
OMG this dress is everything. It fit so perfectly and is STUNNING in person. I wore it to a family wedding and received compliments all night. It's incredibly comfortable, easy (no special bras/panties needed!) and flattering as well, especially for hourglass or pear shapes. I rented size 4 and 6 and honestly couldn't tell the difference between the two. I went with the 6 because the clasp was broken on the 4. It went perfectly with the Slate and Willow necklace I rented. I wanted to keep it and wear it permanently. Can't wait to rent it again!!

Fabulous dress, excellent service! An extremely pleased first-time user!
I wore this dress to a large company banquet I planned -- it was perfect! I got the 14 and the 16 but wore the 14 -- it was a bit snug around the ribs but not terrible and I was afraid the 16 would make me look too poofy. Packing for delivery and returning was classy, clean and efficient! Rent the Runway saved me SO MUCH time and effort at a time when I was very professionally overwhelmed. I will absolutely take advantage of this service again this year. I received many compliments throughout the night and recommended this service to everyone!

Dramatic dress
The waist on the size 12 was too small for me, and so I wore the 14 which was a little big in the bust. I have small shoulders so the boat neck style created a little too much fabric in the front, and I spent the night adjusting by holding my shoulders back and pulling the dress down. The details of this dress are amazing. Completely lined in black, beautiful fabric- the gold "splashes" are especially dramatic, pockets!!, and piping to define the bodice. The dress does flare out on its own. You must either wear a strapless bra or go without one. I thought that the back was lower than a bra, so I went without. This dress was amazing, even with the small issues I had. I wore earrings and a bracelet and no necklace. I thought the fabric would speak for itself, especially when sitting down.

It's a beautiful dress but way too small!
I'm bummed I couldn't wear it, it's a gorgeous dress. I'm very surprised I couldn't fit into a size 4 or 6. I haven't had to wear a size 8 in years!
