Beautiful.

This dress was beautiful, fit very well, and was not see through - runs true to size. You definitely need to have fashion tape available for it though, the side with no shoulder strap needs something to keep it from moving and the small buttons holding the straps in the back kept falling out of their pockets but again - all easily remedied with the fashion tape.

Perfect for spring wedding

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Overall, I loved this dress and received a ton of compliments when I wore to a Spring wedding, but the fit was a little tight. It doesn't sit naturally at the waist, instead a little above, so if you are debating between sizes, I suggest ordering up. Also worth mentioning, the dress isn't lined on the bottom-in case you are thinking about ordering for fall.

Pretty dress, but wasnt for me and I did not end up wearing it. I'm tall and dont mind wearing a shorter dress, but this was really really short. Was very "poofy" in the bottom half and I didnt find it to be flatering. Also, when I would walk the material stuck between my cheeks.....would have been picking it out all night long.

The customer service was, as always, excellent!

I went a size down, as I often do with dresses that are more flowy through the hips. Beautiful color, especially the grey accents. Interesting back as well. I got many compliments- the only problem is that the dress is short!! I know that I'm tall, but it was barely wearable with heels, I had to be cautious all night.

A beautiful dress! The only problem with it was the side without the shoulder came very low-- like cut across the breast, low. Because of this and the low back, it is very difficult to wear any kind of bra or support. If you can figure that problem out, its gorgeous!

The photos do not do this justice. Gorgeous color and material. Very flattering for a petite girl with a bit of a bust. Can see how this might fit funny and maybe even show more than you would like if your bust is small. I LOVED THIS DRESS

I rented this for a 6 month anniversary with my boyfriend, just a nice dinner and then cocktails after. The dress does fit snug in the waist so I selected my larger size, but with a little double-sided tape on the strapless side looked great all night. This was my first rent the runway experience and will now certainly not be my last

I was asked to wear a purple dress to do the guest book at my friend's wedding. This one worked out perfectly. The back is georgeous. However, the dress was short on me, and I am not very tall (5'1''). Also, the side boob tends to show a bit becuase it cuts low in the back.

This dress is amazing, you must wear it to your next event! Everyone was asking me where I got it! The back goes really low, and the dress fits great. The only issue I had was that I was a little bit between a 2 and a 4 and the 4 was way too big and 2 a little tight, but the 2 ended up working just fine.

I normally wear a size 2, but because of the cut, the 4 was much more comfortable. The color is a rich burgundy and would look great on all skin tones--perfect for the fall!

I wore this dress to NYE last year and got so many compliments!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size

I rented a 10 and a 12 because I'm often between the sizes, but the 10 fit perfectly. I needed fashion tape to hold up the back and the side, and it goes too low in the back to wear a bra with it so it may not be good for very busty women. I'm a C and didn't have a problem. I'm 5'1 and the dress went down to just above my knees, which is exactly where I wanted it to be. All in all, a great dress! I'd definitely rent it again.

Did not wear this dress, it is not burgundy, it is definitely PURPLE.

Size worn: None

I did not end up wearing this dress. Firs tof all it says the dress is burgundy, but the dress is most definitley purple not burgundy. The color in the pic is not the same color as the actual dress. Also the dress is a summer dress for sure, not good for any parties in the winter.

Cute party dress

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
Fun dress for a party, night out, bachelorette, etc. The color is great, not too bright, but a nice change from a typical black. One thing to consider is that the area just below your bra area (upper rib cage) fits a little tight. The next size up was a better fit in that same area, but a little too large everywhere else. You may want to reconsider this option if you have a bigger boobs or you are planning to eat a big dinner in this dress.

The fit is definitely a bit on the large size, especially the top. The strapless side falls very low on your chest. Other than that, the dress was very comfortable and moved well. Great length and color.

It did fit a little tight around the ribs, but the size 2 was way too big on the top. I decided to wear the 0 and it ended up being very comfortable even though it was a little tight. I am usually not comfortable wearing a dress with a back as low as it was, but it ended up being fine. It was a perfect dress to wear for my friend's Sweet 16 court. Everyone there told me they loved it.

The bust was a little big (wore it with no bra). And wasn't 100% fit to my body. Tried to adjust it as best as the dress would allow, but it didn't cause too much concern. I'd still rent this dress again.

I wore this dress for a fall wedding. I'm not usually a one-shoulder girl, but I love a great back and this dress definitely has a GREAT back. Probably not great for a larger bust- I went without a bra. It fit great and I loved the length and color.

So many compliments!!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
The dress was lovely. I put it runs small because the waist was pretty tight and unforgiving. It hits just under the bust so the fit is most critical right there. At first I thought the bust was too big because it was really baggy (very unusual problem for me) but after some adjusting it turned out the straps were just too long. The straps are adjustable, but were still too long. Some minor on-the-fly alteration got it fitting perfectly. It was longer than it appears in the model photo, but still 2-3" above the knee. Overall a very fun, very flattering dress.

Beautiful dress, but not for busty girls

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I was really excited to wear this dress, but I guess I should have put a little more thought into it! The back is gorgeous, with the two straps! You definitely cannot wear a bra with this dress since the back cuts so low. I am pretty darn busty so it doesnt work that well for me, lots of double sided tape needed for both lift and coverage! The color is beautiful and the rest of the dress fit true to size.

Wore this dress for NYE and I loved it! I must warn however, the side opposite the strap needs a little invisible tape to keep the "girls" from peeking out too much! This was all it needed and RTR sent some with the dress actually! I loved the fabric and the way it fit! Would highly recommend!!

The PERFECT "Birthday Girl Dress" for a Night on the Town!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore it for my birthday for a dinner and night out with my girl friends. The dress was well-made, a beautiful color and very flattering. I'm tall with curves in the bottom region {hips and booty} and the dress really accented my smaller waistline and back. It was girly with a hint of sexy. It was also not too short which was a concern when I rented it!
