Great fit and flare

Size worn: 6
Rented for: Wedding
This is a great dress for an hourglass shape. I love the fit and flare fit. I got a 6 and 8 and wore the 6. Even with big boobs this was the one with some space extra. The 8 would have just fallen off after I zipped up. Good fabric and thickness. Pair with black accessories and heels. Red lip was everything with this dress.

Bold and different

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size

Wore to a sorority function, the dress was different and bold and I got tons of compliments. Tight enough in the bust area that I wasn't tugging at it all night, but not too tight that it was uncomfortable. Seriously loved this dress.

The color was great! Dress was perfect for the occasion!

Size worn: 8
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress for perfect was true to size. I'm in between 6-8 and both sizes fit me but I chose to go with the size 8 which fit more comfortable and I could wear a bra with it. The size 6 would not zip with a bra on because I am heavy on top. There is know stretch in this dress so it's something to take into consideration especially if your on the bigger bra size. The color was beautiful my only and main con is the fabric of the dress. In the pic the fabric appears to be different. The best way I could describe it is kind of like a jean thick material not what I expected from pictures. On the other hand it does photograph well. I also wish I would have steamed the dress some. I was rushing and never realized if the dress just wrinkled easily or it was wrinkled alread.

No stretch in bust. Seriously. Think business suit zero stretch. Fabric and details are nice, and this dress really is a cute number. Skirt is modest and pockets are perfect.

Great fit! So many compliments and love the pockets!

Size worn: 2
Rented for: Party
I rented this for a company holiday party and it was perfect! I'm normally a size 2 and this fit great, just as expected. I really like that the fabric had a bit of stretch and a light texture to it; it was very flattering and I received many compliments throughout the evening. I am a 32 C and wore a lightly padded strapless bra and it wasn't loose on top but I added a little fashion tape just in case which I would recommend so you don't feel like you have to keep pulling it up. All in all, I couldn't be happier! If there was an option to buy this dress, I would in a heartbeat! And pockets!!! How can you not love a dress with pockets?!

This dress was so fun and cute. Unfortunately, I need a size up, but only 2 and 6 were available. I fit in the 2, but not the girls. Luckily this was my backup dress. The dress has such a flattering silhouette that I will definitely try to rent this again.

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 dress! Great color!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
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.

It was the perfect dress to wear to a family Christmas party!

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
It was very true to size. I'm in between sizes so I was a little nervous while reading some reviews so I ordered both a size 0 and 2. While the size 2 gave me a little more breathing room, the size 0 gave me way more security at my bust. It fit perfectly and I didm't have to pull it up once throughout the night. I got so many compliments on the dress, I felt great all night!

I love a dress that I don't have to worry about!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I am 5'10 and I was worried it would be too short for me but it was a great length on me. I wore a size 6 and didn't wear a bra because it was tight on the top. It's a nice thick dress that has pockets. I liked not needing to bring a purse because of that. I did lose my tall skinny lip liner in all the dancing but everything else survived snuggled in those deep pockets. Downside? The boning in the top poked at little at me. I added the belt to sass it up and go with my tights and shoes. I hope you all have as much fun as I did in this dress. I only gave it 4 stars for the boning.

Comfort and sexy can go hand in hand!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was absolutely amazing. I was truly sadden when mailing it out today. I felt sexy and confident while comfortable the whole time! I was able to eat the delicious food at the reception and not feel like the dress was going to bust at the seems. I was worried this dress was going to be too tight around my bust which is why I opted to get the back up dress one size up. I am 5'4" weighing 125lbs and with my 32D cup size finding stuff to fit all the areas is usually difficult. This dress fit like a glove and I didn't have to keep pulling it up as most strapless dresses require.

I loved this dress for my charity gala! Perfect colour, fit, and style! Thanks, RTR!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
It runs a bit large, I'm usually a pretty solid size 10, and the size 8 fit me like a glove. I have a large bust, and this dress worked great for that, I didn't even need a bra because the internal boning was all I needed, and I'm a 32DDD. Very well made dress, the colour is true to the picture, but is very vibrant, but I loved that. It's a thick fabric too, so no need to worry about what underwear to wear underneath. Great for girls with larger hips, like me, because the dress is very loose around the hips so no problems there.

Great pop of color!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size

Overall, the dress was only so so. I wore it for a video assignment I had to film. The dress' waistline did not align with my natural waist, which resulted in a bit of a frumpy look. Because the way the bottom flairs out, it definitely made me look wider in the hips. However, the color was stunning, the neckline was gorgeous, the pockets were wonderful, and it was a great length. I would not rent again, but I think that's just because of the way it looked on me personally. Material is stiff and isn't stretchy--so moe well endowed woman, like myself, may experience some digging into the skin at the top. Would be great on someone with a different body shape!

The dress fit true to size. The 2 fit but the 0 felt more comfortable (I didn't have to tug at the top all night long like with so many other strapless dresses.) It is structured but it was very comfortable. I would definitely rent this one again.

I needed a dress for Winter Formal (I'm a 9th grader). I usually wear a 4 so I ordered a 2 and a 4. When the dress arrived the 2 fit but the night of the formal it was a little loose. I could have gone for a 0. I added a ribbon around the waist. Great dress. Like others have said it's not a true red as you can see my escort for the dance had on a red shirt. Can't wait for the next event so I can find another great dress!

fabulous and fun dress. It was so cute and sexy at the same time. My husband asked if I could keep it, and he never really cares about that kind of thing. Pictures don't do it justice. The vibrant red/orange is beautiful, and the black contrast trim makes it really different. It stands out very nicely. I didn't love the black contrast zipper in back, but nevertheless, this also makes the dress different and eye catching. It was comfortable and easy to dance in. No complaints on fit. I wore it for an outdoor wedding. People came up to me all night complimenting and asking about it. Men at the wedding told my husband I looked like the girl from the fiat commercials!

We changed from our bridesmaids dresses into "party dresses" halfway through the reception so I turned to RTR for an unforgettable dress. Loved hitting the dance floor in this dress. At 5'9" I was keeping an eye on the length but there were no wardrobe malfunctions. Orange undertones in the red so since its not a pure red it might not work on every skin tone. My mom, sisters, aunts, cousins, and other wedding guests couldn't believe I rented this dress!

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!!

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.

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 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.
