I absolutely love this dress. I was complimented while walking across the street, and then continuously at a black tie event. The skirt has a layer of tulle underneath, so it's poofier than I expected, but it made me feel like a princess. I'm a size 34A and the dress fit me with not much extra room on top. I'd be careful ordering this if you're bigger than a B cup.

I'm 5'9", 135 lbs, 34B & I ordered a 6, my typical size. This dress was large overall, but especially large on the top - too much so for me to be able to wear it.

The dress was amazing. I wore it to a wedding and received many compliments all night. Huge hit. I am in between sizes 6 and 8. The 8 was WAY too big, but the 6 fit just perfect. I had to iron down the skirt to bring down some of the poof and get the pleats to lay correctly, but it was easy enough with a regular iron. It is definitely fancy, made with high quality fabric. Very figure flattering. I would highly recommend this for an event.

I wore this dress to a black tie wedding. I had several people complement me in this dress- so beautiful, elegant, etc. It fit perfectly- I am small busted but have good arms and shoulders. I ordered the 2 and 4 and wore the size 2. Length was about at the knee. RTR sent the dress without the belt, though. I had to call and have it sent overnight. I would HIGHLY recommend this dress!

Beautiful Dress!!

My 13 year-old daughter wore this dress to a black-tie wedding and it was absolutely stunning. The fabric is beautiful and it's really well made. So many people told her how beautiful the dress looked on her....the top has more of an athletic fit than I thought (not like a typical tank top....more like an athletic-fitting "wife-beater" tank so it exposes more of the shoulders) but on her tiny frame, it worked! This dress is stunning. LOVED IT!

Today, a very fashion forward lady at work came to me and said "I just wanted to tell you again that you looked stunning at the Christmas party. If they had an award for the best dressed, you would have won for sure". I swear I am not making that up and it made my day.

I wore this dress to my job's annual Christmas party. I received compliments all night. Amazing fit, not too short - I'm 54 so I was somewhat cognizant of the length.. no problem. I would rent again.

This was a fun dress! I felt comfortable in this dress even though it was a bit too big.

I loved this dress. It was a bit too big for me. I wanted to rent the 12 as well but it wasn't available for my date. I would size down if you were to rent this dress. My bust size is 38DDD and it was a little too loose. Even though it was loose I felt very comfortable and I received compliments all night!

Great party dress!

I rented this dress for New Year's Eve and it did not disappoint. It looks exactly as it does in the photo - super cute and fun. I'm usually a 2 or a 4 in dresses; the 2 wasn't available, though, so I took a gamble. The dress was a tad too big but not terrible. I will say, though, that the belt is ridiculous - it's super tight and hard to attach, and once it is attached, the snap keeps coming undone. That was annoying. But overall, a great experience.

Very cute dress, much shorter and looser than anticipated. Other reviews say that it runs large, this would be an understatement. Well made dress, lots of compliments at the wedding I attended.

I loved this dress! I was skeptical about the sizing but the reviews on this dress helped me. The dress fit me perfectly! The entire process were seamless, and it arrived on my doorstep on time. I received so many compliments that evening, they said the dress also make me looked young! (see my photo, I'm going to be 49 in few days!! though it came with the belt but I used it with my Hermes belt... I'm so glad I wore this because I was asked to deliver an impromptu speech in front of 200+ guests. Oh loved the side pockets! I have recommended your site and I look forward to another fabulous event. Thank you RTR!

Fun Party Dress!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size

Loved this dress. Wore this dress to a wedding reception. It was a sparkler on the dance floor. I wear a size 10 and ordered a 10 and it fit perfectly. I wear 36DD and the top fit perfect. It had a little strech to it. The A-line to this dress balanced my pear shape. I wore a strapless bra because the straps would show. Got tons of compliments on this dress. The only complaint I would say is the belt that came with it was soooo small. Not sure if it got mixed up or it just runs small. I went without a belt and it looked great.

Wore this to a wedding - perfect choice!

This dress is great for a fancy affair. It has a great fit and flare shape, and the sequins make it extra dressy without being too much. The skirt is very full and has a layer of crinolin. I was unsure from pictures if I was going to like the belt with it, but it's subtle.

This dress fit very true-to-size and the proportions worked well with my frame.

This was my first experience with Rent The Runway and part of the reason I chose this dress was based on the reviews. Many of the reviewers had body shapes/types similar to my own. The dress fit very true-to-size and the length was extremely flattering on my short frame. A major bonus: the pockets were big enough to actually fit things (iPhone, lip gloss, etc.) and keep them there; nothing fell out throughout the evening of drinking and dancing.

Beautiful, timeless design, universally flattering.

The netting under the skirt of my alternate size caused the skirt to bunch on one side. Otherwise the dresses were in great shape, especially for the number of renters. This was extremely comfortable and flattering. A modern twist on a classic shape with the cut in tank bodice.

I rented this for my brother's wedding - did not wear it because it was too high-waisted and also a bit too short. The fabric was lovely and would have been cute!

It came with a cute little belt that really pulled the whole look together. The entirely black dress meant that I could wear any jewelry, shoe and purse I wanted. A pop of color made the whole thing sing!

Tight in the bust. Be prepared for a difficult zip up if you're busty.

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small

If you are busty, be prepared to size up or a tight squeeze.
