Fun dress! Great color!
This was the perfect dress for a fun night out! Both the 6 and 8 fit but the 6 was a little tight in the chest. You also have to make sure you keep good posture or else the boning will poke you! It was a great fabric that hung nicely and a fun orangey/red color.

Amazing dress for engagement photos
I wore this for our engagement photos. I was in love with this dress. It fit so nicely and was so comfortable. Plus it turned out great in the photos. I wanted to keep it.

Dress cute but hard to wear with smaller bust
Hard to wear when you have a smaller bust and was in between the 2 and the 4. I went with the 2 so that it didn't flop around on top but was a bit too tight then to move around in. Should have just worn the 4 with a larger bra.

Classy red/black combo!
This dress fit incredibly well and was the most comfortable rental I've had so far. I rented this for a "staycation" date in Boston (went out to dinner and stayed in a hotel locally) and this rental made the night awesome. If you are fuller chested, then this is the rental for you. Amazing dress for the price too!

Lovely dress for a summer wedding
Very flattering dress for a pear shape, love the pockets! I didn't give it 5 stars because the boning in the back right side was a little uncomfortable and I had to adjust it throughout the night.

Fun and sophisticated
Love this dress! It fit so well and I felt so comfortable an beautiful in it. The boning in the front was fantastic too (kept it up since I don't have much of a chest to hold it up). Even made me look like I had boobs!

This dress is gorgeous but I didn't wear it.
I rented a 6 & 8 and both were too small in the bust area... I was hanging out of it, I am a size 36 D. The dress is great though. I may consider renting a size 10 in the future but it makes me nervous that waste may be too big.

This dress fit big in the chest and I have size 32 C chest. I ordered a size 0. The length is also a lot longer, it hits my just above the knee and i am 5' 6". I'm 23 so I would have preferred it to be about three inches shorter like shown on the model. I ordered this dress to wear to a rehearsal dinner, I also ordered the Pave Flower Necklace which accented the dress perfectly. Overall I would not say that this a dress that you must order

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!

Great party dress!
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 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.

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!

A little snug
This dress was great but I had to go with the larger size and even that was a little snug on me. I did love it though, the color was awesome, not as orange as in the pictures and I received many compliments.

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...

Wore this to a wedding with college friends! My girl friend on the far left is also wearing a Christian Siriano dress from RTR.
Wore this to a summer wedding in Atlanta and it was great for the occasion. Good for dancing and runs true to size.

Awesome Dress!
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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

The color stood out and every where I walked, heads turned!
I usually wear a 4, but I chose the 2 since it was strapless and I didn't want to be tugging on it all night to keep it up since I have a smaller chest. It was a little tight in the ribcage, but it kept my posture at an A+ all night. :) It was really comfortable though and the color is just fabulous. I wore it to a company holiday party and the length hit right at the knee so it was tasteful to wear in front of the husband's boss. I was definitely sad to mail this one back!!
