The color is absolutely amazing, and really cannot adequately be gauged in pictures. It is incredibly comfortable and light. I got so many compliments on this dress, it may have outshone my performance.

I wore this to my boyfriend's dining out and got so many compliments! Everyone loved how classy it looked, especially my boyfriend. I ordinary wanted a small but unfortunately it wasn't available but the middle fit well! I loved how comfortable it was, I think that was the best part. I also wore 3 inch heels.

Perfect dress for us petite ladies!
Size worn: XSR
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this dress for my friend's black tie optional wedding. I wanted to wear a long dress - because why not? - but being super short, I have a tough time finding gowns that fit. This dress definitely runs small. I bloused the dress around the belt a little (as you can see in the photo) and wore 4 inch heels and it was the perfect length. So, on someone taller, I imagine you'd definitely need a Long size. The color is beautiful and the cut is very classy but still sexy. As other reviewers have noted, the bust area is a little snug, but I am small-chested so it wasn't an issue for me. Got lots of compliments all evening. Thanks RTR!

This dress was really flattering and very forgiving. Got so many compliments on the dress- highly recommended! The only thing- if you're taller than 5'2" DEFINITELY get the longer size. I got the XSR and wearing 2" heels touched the floor perfectly. Also- Normally I wear around a size 4- managed to fit myself into the XSR (I ordered last minute) the bust area was actually really tight. So just beware! But I still loved this dress

Got so many compliments from my sorority sisters on this classic looking dress!
Size worn: SR
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
Unlike the fit notes said, there did not seem to be a lot of room in the chest area. I'm a 32DD and pretty tiny all around, but the small didn't fit my bra in it without fashion tape. I LOVED the way the dress looked on me, although it was definitely a much different fit than expected. I thought the neckline was going to cut a little deeper. Overall I liked it, but felt a little "old" me for.

Wore to opening night of the opera season. This was a really comfortable dress. Overall, the small fit me better, but the bust was too tight, so I went with the medium. A little looser in other areas, but still looked and felt wonderful. Length for me worked perfectly with my 3" heels. As others have noted, the belt seemed to have a tendency to slip, but I used some double-sided stylist tape and it held in place perfectly all night. I paired the dress with Badgley Mischka Falling Leaf Earrings and the Dress Me Up bracelet from Cara Accessories.

I wear a 36C and it was a little tight in the bust but it just meant no push-up bra. :) It was a tad long (I'm 5' even) so I ended up wearing 5" heels. I also didn't much care for the ribbon that came with it, so last minute I wore a fitted jeweled belt which matched the earrings I rented perfectly!

Dancing the night away with my adoring husband.
Size worn: XSR
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This was the perfect dress for me! I am very petite, small-chested, and no shoulders. This dress fell nicely and gave me shape. The empire waist tassled ribbons were very elegant. I felt appropriately dressed and not overdone at a black-tie event. A couple tips--wear higher heels as the dress can drag (I wore kitten); and the ribbon should be tied tight, as it can start to sag throughout the night, you may have to retie a couple times. I also rented the suggested earrings--they looked great, but they were clip-ons, and my small earlobes were really hurting by the end of the night. Overall, well worth it, and it was really fun to dress up!

The only thing I would say is it ran a little tight in the bust area, (granted im a DD). I typically wear a small, but the girls definitely too tight.

The gown was lovely, but it was too tight across the hips and thighs (not my best feature, but I am not THAT big) so I could not wear it. I was afraid I would rip it when I danced or sat down.

I rented this dress for a wedding but ended up wearing my backup dress instead. I liked this dress but the other one just flattered my curves a little bit better. I would recommend this dress but would be careful to look at the style notes as it is a little bit short.

This dress fit very well I didn't have to keep adjusting it. I believe one of the tassels unraveled on the black ribbon but other than that, the color and fit is very flattering and easy to accessorize. I didn't even need to try it on and I think this would look good on anyone.

LOVE your site! The dress I was sent was a very pretty dress and of nice quality. I went to a Mardi Gras Ball and the requirement was the dress to be floor length.Since they are so strict I could not even wear flats to meet the requirement. Unfortunately, I was not able to wear the dress but I did not verify the length when I ordered so I feel this was my fault. I had a personal back up dress so it was not a problem. I will certainly order a dress again and be careful to check length. I did not wear the dress so I could not provide a picture. sorry

elegant dress, but too long for me
Size worn: XSR
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this dress for a fall wedding. The dress is lovely and elegant and would have been appropriate for the event, but was too long for me to wear even in 4 inch heels (hem of the regular length dress touched the floor). The XS pulled a bit at the bust, but the S was too large everywhere. I'd leave this one to the tall(er) ladies to enjoy.

Lovely dress but sent it back -- too small and too short
Size worn: SR
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was a lovely color with nice material, but didn't end up wearing it because it was too small and much too short. I got the size small - the backup medium was not available. Like other reviewers have said, the bust of this dress is quite small and was snug, ruining the lovely drape of the dress. Also, the dress was very short -- ankle length -- without shoes on, which made it look both silly and too casual-looking for a black-tie event.

The dress was a great length. I am 5'7" and it just touched the ground with me wearing flats so it was the perfect length. I didn't end up wearing the belt that came with the dress. I used a belt from my wardrobe that was a little tighter and didn't have anything hanging down. Everyone loved the dress and I got many compliments. Great for a fall wedding!

The convenience of Rent the Runway was outstanding!
Size worn: XSR
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The majority of the dress fit well. I have an athletic but petit build with a small upper 1/2 and a larger bottom half and had no fitting issues. I was upset at the length of the dress. I ordered a S and an XS but the dress I had received was "P" which I assume it petite. The dress was short and therefore I was not able to wear heels and had to stick to not very flattering flats. The color in the photo comes across almost exactly as the dress looks in person, and I would say the same for the overall look and style of the dress as well which was nice. Although, I certainly did not feel like I was wearing "the runway" as the dress did not seem to even be made that well. The length was the most disappointing and therefore I would not wear this gown again. I am 5'2" and was unable to wear heels and I never leave the house without heels on! Very upsetting for such an important event. Still very pleased with RTR service but will be trying a different dress for sure.

Gorgeous color and pleats.
Size worn: MR
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I really liked this dress. The color - somewhere between maroon and plum - is beautiful, and I loved the pleats. When I first put it on, I thought it looked like a sack, but the sash brings it in at the waist and makes it very flattering. It was also super comfortable, and I could wear a regular bra with it, which is a huge plus for me. I wore it to back-to-back weddings, and I got tons of compliments! My only complaint was the sheer overlayer was pretty delicate, and I had to be very careful to keep it from snagging on my shoes.

I never wear dresses, never mind dressing formally, but this gown was so comfortable, I forgot I was wearing a dress! My size usually runs between small and medium so I tried both and decided on the medium. It was very light and fell nicely on my frame. I liked that the belt was a tie-on sash...it was nice to be able to loosen or tighten it to my liking. The dress was a little long for me...I had on a 3.5" heel and I stepped on the hem a couple of times. Other than that, I definitely adored this dress. I highly recommend it for anyone who likes to dress simply but elegantly.

Absolutely loved this dress. Was very grateful for the 2nd size b/c I typically wear a size 6 and wear a small in most basic clothing brands. Ended up with the medium being perfect. Length was also perfect for me since I like short heels (~1 inch). Those who like tall heels will want the longer size! Wore it to my first military ball, and it was perfect - had a ton of compliments and spread the word about RTR, which is perfect for military balls, usually located in small towns where dress options are limited.

This dress is gorgeous and fun to wear. It is a little short and I was disappointed that they didn't offer long sizes. I ordered a medium hoping it would be a little longer than the small, but they are pretty much the same length. I wore it with a different belt because the belt it comes with isn't very fashionable. I did get a lot of compliments on the dress though. The dress is simple and elegant. It's not as edgy as I thought it would be.

The material of this dress is really high end and beautiful. The length was a little off for me, but I loved the way the overall dress fit. It was very Grecian and loose in the right places for me as a bigger busted gal. I am pregnant and was looking for something classy that would cover my bump well - this dress did the trick, plus you can wear a regular bra with it also.

I wore this dress to my husband's annual fire department gala. It was very pretty and comfortable. One does not need to wear a "special" bar with this dress. I would recommend a bit of heel with this as I had to be careful while walking. I am unable to wear a substantial heel due to an ankle surgery. The belt is a bit slippery and needed to be readjusted frequently. Another belt would be an easy substitution.
