Loved this dress! It came in great condition and I got a ton of compliments on it! I'm short so it hit right above the knee, but still looked super cute! However, I am short waisted and the boning in the bodice cut into my side a little. Other than that, great dress!

Great dress! the color was perfect and I paired it with the Badgley Mischka Jewelry Tiered Deco Earrings. The bodice was a little loose size (2) (A-b cup)but I couldnt fit in the smaller size (0). The length hit a right below mid thigh and was very comfortable to wear.

This dress is NOT what it looks like in the picture. I am the same height as the model and the dress came down to my knees. It came looking used, and in a brick red color. I could honestly find a better dress at Macys, do yourself a favor and save your time and money. This is possibly the worst dress I have ever put on.

I usually wear a 0 or 2, but for this dress the size 0 was HUGE. It sagged around my armpits, and my shoulders aren't particularly narrow. I have never had that problems before. The dress is also heavy. Since it did not fit I had to return it. Nice color though.

I absolutely LOVE this dress, I wore it for prom and received compliments all night. The dress wasn't too short so I wasn't worried about it riding up. The color is a nice rich red and it fit perfectly. It was easy to zip up. I wish I bought it instead of renting it! :)

I rented this dress for my 13 year old daughter and it looked AMAZING, The Color was great and it came in perfect condition. She is 5'3 118lbs and we rented a size 0 and a 2 although they both fit she chose to go with the size 0 because it hugged her upper body more. It was Great!! I would definitely rent it again!!

I love this dress!!! Amazing bodice, never had to pull it up. Good for small chested ladies. I am 5'1" and it was not long (I chose size zero). Barely wrinkled through a night of crazy dancing. Tons of compliments. I might rent it again... I am very straight and it does not make me look puffy with all the layers. The dress is more red in real life than orange.

I love this dress. I'd buy it if I could find it for sale. I wore it to a wedding and got compliments all day long. Needed ironing, which was tricky with all the pleats - but turned out great. So fun to dance in. I wear an 8 and all they had was the 10, but I used the "upsie daisies" and never worried or tugged at all, even dancing. A++!

Great dress. The color of the dress is a little darker red in person, also a tad little bit faded looking but still beautiful and no one noticed or said anything. Comfortable and you will not need to pull up the dress all night like most strapless dresses.

I want to buy this dress! I love it! I wore it to a summer country club wedding. It was so comfortable and figure flattering. It was the perfect length for me, above the knee but long enough to dance in. However, this dress is cranberry, not orange. I will be renting it again.

I wanted a dress for New Years that wasn't very formal, had glitter all over it or was just too short (sensitive about ma knees!)...didn't want a long dress either so I was REALLY nervous about the length of this dress and boy was I HAPPY when I put it on! It fit perfectly in all the right places and I have wide shoulders and athletic thighs...short cute dresses NEVER fit! Thanks RTR! This dress made a crappy night fashionably crappy and I got lots of compliments on the dress.

Loved this dress! Very flattering, makes your waist look tiny and will hide larger hips. I wore this with a a puffy tutu like slip underneath to make it look extra bubbly. The color is more of a cranberry then the bright red it appears in the picture.

Although I found the dress to run slightly large in the bust (but not so much that it was falling off, just loose), I absolutely loved it. The color is more cranberry than it appears in the photo, but the volume and pleats of the skirt are really fun! I wore this to a fashion show and felt both comfortable and fashion-forward.

Trying on two #1 dress options for my boyfriend... and him loving me in both!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
The dress was perfect! This was my back-up dress. I originally chose the sequin Mischka, but I desired a shorter length. In this orange number, I was very comfortable throughout dinner, gambling, and some hard dancing. I only remember adjusting the dress once; however, this was only after heavy dancing :-) This dress looks great with heels or boots. What I found awkward was the metal wire that ran vertical from about the midsection to the bosom. One on the right and left to give the dress structure I assume. This may just be my experience, but even after adjusting the dress, one wire would not lay flat, causing one side of the dress to be higher than the other. Imagine a diagonal line vs a straight line across the bosom. From the RTR pictures, I don't think this was how the dress was made. But, no fret, the dress still looked flawless because of its origami design.

Got so many compliments on this dress. Really unique style. Beautiful soft red color - not nearly as orange as in the photo. Do wish I had gone up a size for backup - I ordered the 0 and 2, and barely fit into the 2 on my bust - I'm a 34D. The pro of course is that it stayed up all night without tugging! Like another reviewer noted, there are vertical wires in the bust, and one was pushing up and out more across the front than the other. However, since the whole dress has a wrapped/layered look, I don't think it was very noticeable.

Wore this to a wedding last May. Bubble skirt and cinched waist is very cute and flattering on hourglass figures. I felt that the material could have been a bit more luxe, but I generally like shiny things so maybe I should've gone that route. In any case, it was fun to wear.

A friend demanded to know where I'd found this dress and I was pleased to tell her I'd rented it!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
First things first: you'll notice I usually wear 0 but wore a 4 here and marked it as true to size. I rented this dress over 2 years ago when I was a 2-4 and have since lost ~10 pounds. I received both the 2 and 4: the 2 fit well except for the boning within the bodice was a bit snug and I worried it would be uncomfortable by the end of the wedding evening. I did want to eat and move around, after all! The 4 was certainly more spacious without being baggy and didn't leave me with the uncomfortable feeling of a wire poking into my tummy. The pleats on this dress were a lot of fun - the ones on the bodice got a bit scrunched so don't look quite as crisp as they did in the model's photo, but I think the overall fit was still flattering. Loved the color and the fullness of the skirt; if you're pear-shaped at all (I'm not) this is probably ideal.

I rented this for a wedding, but ended up wearing my backup dress. The color and detail of the dress wasn't as nice as I expected. There's some stiff boning and structure that makes the dress poof out like thin fabric over a wire; its not puffy and soft from fabric volume like I was hoping. Oh well. My backup dress was amazing so it all worked out.

I orginally ordered this as my back up dress and knew I had to go with this one the minute I tried it on! I wore this to an evening wedding with gold accessories and nude/gold heels. The bubble skirt bottom was really fun and made it feel more fashion forward. I wore a strapless bra to add a little to my bust but ended up taking it off halfway thru the night cause the dress fit perfect without it. I have longer legs and this dress fell perfect at a little below mid thigh. I loved this dress and hated to return it!

Loved the dress!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I usually wear a size 8 on bottom and a size 10 on top. As expected, the size 10 fit snugly on top and slightly big on the bottom. The dress looked amazing, although the fabric looked more like cotton and had less shimmer than I expected. It ended about 3 inches above my knees, and was perfect for the black-tie optional wedding of my extremely fashion-conscious friend. I wore it with black shoes and accessories to make it look slightly more formal. I received compliments all night and it stayed up well, only had to tug a little during the night. My regular strapless bra was perfect underneath. I only gave the dress 4 stars because the size 10 dress was missing the hook at the top of the zipper, so I had to run to the cleaners the day before the event and have them add a hook.

I am reviewing this dress almost three years after I rented it. The color and fabric were lovely (though upon reflection maybe not a great choice for my coloring) and the fit was just right--as I recall there was a bit of stretch in the lining. It was very comfortable. I didn't need to wear a bra, and the bubble skirt definitely hid the hip area effectively. Super cute dress.

This dress is so beautiful. The cranberry color, the fit. It's comfortable and fashionable. I normally wear a 6 but I fit easily into a 4, I probably could have worn a 2 in this - it runs large. Only concern is that the the boning in the bodice sticks into your chest on the right side (when wearing it). Other than that it is a beautiful, fun dress and I hate having to return it!

In person, the color is a muted burnt orange, which was a nice surprise. I had ordered two sizes -- 0 and 2, and I noticed that while 0 fit me better, it fit a little funny at the bust because the bustier was broken on one side. I called RTR and received a replacement dress the next day. Yay to great service! The dress held up nicely, I never needed to worry about hiking up the strapless dress. My husband loved it when I wore it to our date night!

Ok, i love this dress. It was super comfortable, easy to move in and fun. The color and the unique shape make it a stand out dress. This is a dress that I purchased from Rent The Runway. I am so happy that i was able to pick this up. I highly recommend keeping an eye out for their sales. It was a great find and a tremendous value. The ideal party dress. Great fit, did not wear a bra as the bodice offered plenty of support. Also looked good with a thin small sweater. Options for endless shoe, bag and jewelry combinations. Thanks RTR for making the night even more fun,
