Wore this dress to an early Christmas event, and it dazzled!! Great dress; made me feel fantastic!!
For me, this dress ran a little big on top. I usually wear a size 4, and it was a little big but worked fine. I belted it to help hold everything in place, and I really ended up liking the way the belt looked with the dress. This dress is so fun. It has great movement and sweet little pockets. The contrasting zipper in back is another fun detail. Overall, this dress hit a home run. I received tons of compliments on it.

Fun, pretty dress - got tons of compliments!
I ordered a 4, with the 2 for my backup size and ended up wearing the 2. They both fit, but the top was a little more snug in the 2, which made dancing more comfortable (not having to worry about constantly pulling the top up). I wore it to a November wedding and got tons of compliments! I love this dress style, where it's tight on top and flares out at the waist - very flattering and forgiving. I would totally wear this again!

I loved the dress! It made my waist look small, yet it was still comfortable and easy to dance in!
The dress fit perfectly. I'm 5'9" and 135 pounds. I wore the size 4 to a fall wedding and couldn't have been happier. It was comfortable, easy to dance in, and fit like a glove. I wish I didn't have to return it:)

Runs big in the chest area...It was a bit uncomfortable to keep it in place, but everyone loved it!
Everyone loved the dress, it runs a bit large in the chest area, and it did had to pull it up a couple of times. The color was really beautiful!

The fit was great, I didn't have to keep pulling it up all night and it was the perfect length.

Comfortable, flattering and fun!!
I wore this dress for a local charity event and felt fabulous in it all night. The fit was very flattering, form-fitting at the bust and natural waist with a perfect flare in the skirt starting at the hips. Great for a larger bust and most importantly, really fun to dance in!

POCKETS!!
i love dresses with pockets!!! so this was absolutely perfect. i didn't have to fidget too much with pulling the dress up either because it was structured and fit really well. i thought it looked simple yet trendy (back zipper) and i matched it with the house of harlow black geometric necklace. i got tons of compliments on the whole outfit (with black patent leather pumps). absolutely loved the combo and would rent again!

Such a fun Fall dress!
I wore this dress to a cocktail party, and it was sooo comfortable! The color is definitely orange, but it was great for the fall. The length was perfect for the party, as well.

Wore this for a company holiday party.
Runs large and fit is a bit off-- sweetheart bust is a bit too narrow and waist was too high for me. Color is gorgeous and material is good.

The dress was super cute but the bust are was too loose for my 32A chest size. I had to wear 2 strapless bras to get it to fit somewhat normally.

Sadly a no go.
I rented this dress to wear to prom. My prom is during march/April. So it's pretty warm outside where I live. When I ordered this dress I thought it was a thin fabric but I was wrong. It was as heavy as a blanket and there was no way I could wear it being that it was about 90 degrees out. I would've melted. But overall the dress looked very pretty and I loved the style.

Great dress!
I wore this dress to my friends wedding in June. It fit great, the material is cotton but dressy enough for a wedding. I got lots of compliments. The color is a beautiful shade of red, not too orange-y.

Great experience as always - arrived on time, fit perfectly, no hassle.
I wore this to a May wedding and absolutely loved it. The fit is great, length was long enough for a wedding - didn't feel like the girl with the "too short" dress (we all know there's always at least one) and the hubby liked it too.

Great bold color
Rented this dress for a wedding. The color was great and thoroughly enjoyed having pockets. The length was great for me, however this dress adds to the many reason why I wish I had a bigger chest; it is very fitted for at least a C cup and long torso.

Pretty Dress!
This dress runs a little small if you're large in the bust. I usually wear an 8 but since this dress is very fitted up top, I ended up having to wear the 10. Still a pretty dress.

This dress was actually overnighted to me when my original rental didn't work out! The customer service at RTR is unparalleled!
I rented this dress for an outdoor Derby party. The dress is flattering and it fit exactly the way it looks on the model. I really loved that it has pockets. It is a little uncomfortable at the top because the midsection is very fitted and the top sort of poked in to my underarms. It ended up being a great choice for derby!

My dress was bold color and unique in comparison to the other guests at the wedding. The other women at my table were in love with my dress and how the color complimented my tan and dark wavy hair. They all wanted to know where I got the dress from. Needless to say I should have some RTR referrals heading my direction.
I wore this to a outdoor vineyard wedding. I paired it with Rent the Runway earrings that were a "Mystery accessory", a large black sun hat and black wedges. Everyone loved the dress and were envious of the hat in the hot Virginia June sun. I had to go up a size given my bust size in this dress. That was the only downfall. Good thing I choose the size 8 as my backup size.

Cute dress
This dress was as expected overall. The fabric is nice and doesn't wrinkle easily. It barely fit me (was nearly too big), but then again, I am small. It was slightly longer than I'd anticipated (it came to my knees, but I am only 5'0" tall). I wore it to a derby party with a black hat and it was perfect.

Fits horribly in the bust
I am a size 2 and cup B. The dress itself fit great on the body and was very cute but the bust fit was horrible and I couldn't wear the dress to my event (which was quite stressful). The wire along the front does all types of weird things to the bust area. The size 4 fit better in the bust, but was too big otherwise. If you are a size 2, only rent this if you are relatively flat chested.

Not so much...
Loved this dress online so I ordered two sizes. Thank goodness I ordered it with another dress. This style just wasn't right for my petite with full bust body type. I did not like the way the front of the dress looked at all. Sad but true. I was, however, surprised at how comfortable the dress was and the pockets were an extra bonus!

Great Dress!
I had just given birth 7 weeks before I had a wedding to attend and I rented this dress. I am nursing, so my breasts were quite large (36DD), I still had a pooch in my lower belly as well. This dress flattered me very well. It hid the pooch without the use of Spanx and my breasts were lifted to look fantastic! The fabric was also of great quality, and I received this dress like new. I got a TON of compliments:)

Very cute, easy to wear
This was my backup dress, and I didn't end up wearing it as my first choice was great. It was a great dress, though. One of the other reviews said it was more red in person, which is why I ordered it - I disagree. It comes very much as pictured, and looks much more 'flame' than 'red'. Lots of orange tones, so didn't really work for a christmas party feel. Comfy, and I thought ran a touch big. I'm normally a 2 and I the 0 fit me best.

I loved this dress! The material is very rich, and the bodice extremely fitting. It looked great on my smaller top half and covered my larger bottom. It was the perfect holiday dress, and I will definitely want to order this again. Thanks RTR!

Wore this to a summer wedding in Atlanta and it was great for the occasion. Good for dancing and runs true to size.

Comfortable and cute
I wore the 4 because I was a little concerned about it falling down but in the smaller size, though, I had no trouble dancing. Generally I think the bust-waist ratio is a little low but this dress is still adorable and good for women who think their top halves are more desirable than their bottom halves...

I got so many compliments on this dress & I felt so beautiful wearing it!
The fabric is really unique & is very high quality. I don't recommend wearing this dress somewhere you plan on dancing a lot. It tends to turn & slip down. I regret not using the fashion tape to keep it in place. I was constantly tugging it up all night & I wore the smaller size. It looked very cute in pictures though!

I fell in love with this dress months ago, and just had to have it for homecoming. I got a size 2 and 4, and I usually fit into a dress size 2. However, even the two was a bit big, nothing that couldn't be fixed with fashion tape, but I was tugging it up most of the night so I recommend sizing down. Overall, I really loved this dress. It looked amazing and I got a ton of compliments. So yes, rent it, just size down.

I wore this to a wedding and got so many compliments on it--everyone wanted to know where it was from. I'm very curvy in the hips and not quite so gifted above and this cut was very flattering. I may have had a little room up top but I had no issues with the dress sliding down. I'm normally a 6 and this was a very comfortable fit, not tight at all and the backup 8 (which I am normally very grateful for) was way too big.

I didn't end up wearing this dress because the 6 was too small in the bust and the 8 was too big. I'm not sure that this is a great dress if you are long waisted like I am; it just didn't look right.

This was my first time Renting the Runway and I loved this dress. I am 5'10 and weigh 138 lbs and got the size 6. It fit perfectly and was the perfect dress for the wedding I went to. I got tons of compliments on it. It's a burnt orangish red color.

I rented this dress for a casual poolside wedding. I think I received a compliment from every guest. I could not give it 5 stars because the dress fit perfectly except for the bust. I am a 32DD and I was continuously making sure the dress had not turned or come down while I was dancing.

I rented this dress for my 30th birthday. I loved it! The smaller size I ordered was too small for my chest (36C) but the bigger dress was kind of roomy then in the waist area. I went for the bigger option however and I got so many compliments. This dress rocks!
