Got compliments from people whose opinions I respect a lot!
I rated "true to size" but if anything, it might run large. I would have worn the 10 (the skirt fell nicer), but there was just too much room up top. Pros: I loved that the dress had pockets so I didn't need a clutch Comfort, and the ability to wear a normal bra More vibrant than most other dresses at the party (bright and shiny!) Danceable! Cons: There were some wrinkles in the dress, which probably can't be avoided. I thought about taking it to the dry cleaners to see if they could steam or iron them out, but ultimately decided I didn't care enough to spend the money and time on that endeavor. The dress came with belt loops sewn in the sides. If you go to the Trina Turk website you'll see that this dress has a matching belt which is cute, but doesn't come when you rent it. I talked to a Rent the Runway stylist and got the ok to snip off the belt loops.

Fun Holiday Dress!
I wore this dress to my husband's holiday party and it was perfect! I wanted something classy but fun and bright. This dress fit that description perfectly! It had a great sparkle to the material and was very festive looking. I paired the dress with a sparkly collar necklace, black pumps, and a black clutch. The dress was pretty true to size without much stretch but I was able to move around and dance in it. I received so many compliments that night I didn't want to return it!

Vibrant color, great for holiday party!
Fit is very flattering if you have a curvy shape and like a-line styles. The dress is appropriate for a conservative holiday party - not too low cut, not too short, but very fun and festive.

Festve, fun, flattering!
The color is great! Pink and red. I wore it with pink patent leather pumps. My only complaint is the top was tight around my ribs. It wasn't noticeable to anyone else, just not all that comfortable. But still a fantastic dress. Tons of compliments.

Perfect fit and such a pop of color
I really enjoyed this dress. This is a perfect rental-- the color and shine is so memorable you'd never get away with wearing it twice. This was actually my backup dress so I only had it in a 6, plus a stylist picked it for me since my original backup was out of stock. I usually wear an 8, but because the skirt is pretty full the 6 worked on me. I imagine an 8 would have fit well too, though-- the top of the 6 was slightly tight around my ribs, but not bad. I got compliments all night, everyone wanted to know where I got it! The only thing I wouldn't suggest this for is dancing-- by the end of the night, the undersides of my arms were slightly sore where the shiny material had rubbed on them, so if I had been dancing I can imagine it would be worse. Oh, and the best part? Pockets!

Arrived on time and the ease of the return are def strong points! EZY PZY
True to size and very flattering... more for up to C+ bust size, I am a 34D and it was just a teeny bit tight. Pretty pink light and dark stripes, with lurex threads running thru out ... almost an iridescent feel to it. Full skirted bottom is so easy and forgiving and long enough where you don't feel you will be tugging on the length and especially when you sit down. Super comfortable and received many compliments from other gals, as I was on a date with my guy? Pretty neat to get compliments from peers. Enjoy!

Loved this dress! Was perfect for a department holiday party. Touch of sparkle for business event!
This dress is a nice departure from the silver, gold, black, or red attire for holiday occasion. The fit was flattering and comfortable. I had room to dance, sit to chat with friends, and space to indulge in the edible goodies. It was appropriate in the company of my boss and other administrators and the younger crowd thought it was a "cool Kate Spade." (credit given to Trina Turk! ;-).

Great dress! Very fun for a formal occasion when you need a pop of color.
I probably could have ordered a size down but that's more my being uncomfortable with new fits than RTR's fault! The 10 fit really well, with ample room for my bust, which is necessary. I loved going all pink with the lipstick and nail polish! Definitely recommend this to other girls who are busty. Got compliments all night!

I wore this dress for the opening number in a pageant. The glimmer of pink gave just enough sparkle. I paired it with silver jewelry and nude pumps and it looked amazing on stage. Unfortunately, I do not have access to the photos from the night.

Subtle shine looked great on stage and had pockets!
I loved this dress - it was a great bold color and fit true to size. I'm 5'2 and it hit me mid-knee. I was, however, surprised by how light-weight the fabric was - it ended up being a little wrinkled when I took it out of the box. But once it was de-wrinkled, it looked great. And I loved that it had pockets!

Beautiful fabric, true to size, wow! dress.
I wore this dress to a work awards dinner and got lots of compliments, even from one of my male co-workers. I loved that it covered my chest but was still playful and reflected my style. It pooched a bit in the back, but overall fit well, was comfortable and memorable.

Classy, flirty, fun, sparkly.
Rented this dress for an outdoor wedding in Florida. With gold sandals, it was very elegant yet youthful. The fabric has some structure to it, which presented the only drawback--the pleats in the skirt were fairly wrinkled when I got the dress and, despite my attempt to iron them, remained that way. Once I was up and moving, you couldn't really tell, but it bothered me initially. Aside from that, the fit was great and the colors were gorgeous. This dress definitely stood out.

Sweet dress. great colors.
Wore this to a White House holiday party, and it was just right. Modest yet festive. The zipper was pretty sticky. Yes, I did casually slip in the phrase "White House holiday party" as if it's no big deal.

Unfortunately I was not able to wear either size.
The 6 ran small, I usually wear a 4-6 and even the 6 was too tight under the chest. Also the pleated part was shorter on one side than the other and the overall look of the dress was fadded/worn. I was not able to even wear it.

Cute dress for a more conservative wedding.
I wore this to a winter wedding, and felt that the candy stripe would work for the holiday time, even though it's summery pink. I paired it with black sheer tights and a black cardigan. I got a bunch of compliments, as most everyone else was wearing black (the color definitely stands out!). I could have worn the 4 except that I have a wide ribcage, so I went with the 6. The dress was a bit big in the chest/shoulders, and also in the skirt, but it was super tight around my ribs. The pockets were great, and it was really comfortable. A great value at $30!

Cute dress but not really for winter
I got this dress as well as another for a November wedding, and I ended up wearing the other one. This was cute, though, and may do well for a winter daytime event. It fit well and was very flattering without being too bright or distracting!

Perfect for my daughter's Christmas show performance.
I loved this little dress that we rented for my daughter's Christmas show performance. I was so happy to find something age-appropriate for a 12-year old, (5' 2"), and added just a curly pony tail and a red/pink ribbon in her hair. I only wish I had ordered a size 0, as it was a little baggy on top.

Adorable dress!! Got lots of compliments! Would rent again.
I rented this for my daughter's engagement party, and got so many compliments about the dress! It fit the occasion perfectly. I could have probably worn either the 2 or the 4, they felt about the same size. Great experience with Rent the Runway and would happily rent from them again!

Cute and comfortable!
I wore this dress for a date night with my boyfriend, and I absolutely loved it. The colors are so bright and fun, and there's just enough hint of sparkle without being super glittery. My boyfriend told me I looked beautiful! The fit was true to size mostly, but my large bust looked like it had to be stuffed into the 6. I ordered an 8 as a backup, and chose to wear it so my ladies weren't smooshed, and since I knew I would be eating a large meal!

Christmas shimmer dress
We vacationed in Washington DC for Christmas and I wanted to rent a dress for Christmas day dinner. This was a perfect choice for a family gathering; modest cut, but bold with stripes and shimmer. I rented the Gold Shadow Bib Necklace to go with (Yay! RTR had it on SALE!) I wore two layers of tights and boots to keep my legs warm, and a black wrap for my shoulders. So sad I had to send it back!

Fun eye-catching colors!
I really liked this dress. The colors are so fun and it was really eye-catching, which was nice! I was worried about it not fitting my larger-sized boobs, but that definitely wasn't the case. There was a little bit of bunching around the mid-section, but I don't think it was that noticeable. The only real downside is that the color scheme is eerily similar to the stripes on the shopping bags you get at Victoria's Secret. However, I still really liked it, and the stripes are cool in that you can see them well from further away but they're a little subtler up close.

Great dress!
I enjoyed this dress. With some recent weight gain I did not want anything too tight. The dress was snug while zipping but felt fine once on. The pockets were different and added bulk. I felt confident and had compliments all night.

Customer service was great!
I wore this for my fiance's holiday party in December. I wanted to do something fun and sparkly. I loved the pockets! I usually wear a size 4 in dresses. This felt kind of big and had some space under my arms. I had ordered a 4 and 6 expecting it to be too small, and I didn't even put the 6 on at all. overall, it worked!
