Made me look like a million bucks!

Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was one of the most comfortable and flattering dresses I have ever worn. It hugged my body in all the right places! Loved it so much. The customer service was also amazing as I had originally ordered an 8 and 10. I called right away when I realized they were going to be too big and customer service overnighted me a 6L. Love RENT THE RUNWAY! You all are amazing. I always suggest you to anyone who asks for suggestions in places to get formal dresses.

Felt so beautiful all night in this dress!

Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
First of all, lemme just give a shout out to the RTR costumer service. What an AMAZING group of people. Unfortunately, my original back up dress was returned from its pervious rental too damaged to send out to me, so they were quick to notify me and give me suggestions for another dress. I ended up choosing this dress to wear (it had been my first choice all along) and I am SO glad I did! It is absolutely GORGEOUS. It's a very romantic style, but the back makes it a statement dress. No one else had a dress like mine at the Marine Corps Ball. I ordered a 4R, but it was a little short for me, as well as not as tight fitting as I had wanted, so I called RTR right away and they sent me an overnight alternate backup size, 2L which was PERFECT. I wore about a 3 inch heel and the bottom merely grazed the floor. The open back is so sexy and shows off your back muscles, as well as hugging you rear end in all the right ways. I have a soft spot for lace, so this dress was all I could have asked for. The color is slightly more purple than the picture shows, but it is even more beautiful in person!

This dress was so pretty and not too long. Its perfect for anyone below 5'4". However, the dress is better for someone with a fuller figure. I didn't have the curves needed and looked a little overwhelmed by the gown. Is lovely though

This dress runs large. I am usually a 4-6 and the 2R fit (and could have been a little more form fitting). Definitely order your size and a size down. It photographs well and I got a ton of compliments! It looks great on a curvy/athletic shape.

Both friends and strangers were floored by this dress! I've never received so many compliments.

Size worn: 0L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress to a formal holiday party with over one-thousand attendees. Friends and strangers alike approached me to with how absolutely special this gown is. Everyone I met said how beautiful it is, and then were floored when seeing the back. I felt amazing in this dress and hard a difficult time parting with it the next morning! Overall the fit runs large. I am 5'8", about 115 lbs, and usually wear a 0 or 2. This dress was just a tad too big for me even in the 0L, but no one could notice. I wore black T-strap heels and the bottom of the dress grazed the floor perfectly. I highly recommend this dress (and remember to take photos of how gorgeous you look and feel!). My partner's coworkers were still talking about my look the next day.

Not for Me

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
I got this dress in my At Home Try On pack. This dress runs large for its size, which can severely alter the way it's supposed to look on you because of the deep back. It was comfortable but not very flattering so I didn't wear it anywhere. Perhaps it would work if I went down a size. Note: the material does show every lump and bump you have, but you won't be able to smooth things out by wearing spanx because of the exposed back. If you don't want to show off certain curves, this one won't be for you.

My boyfriend's jaw was on the floor....A.K.A. he liked it a lot.

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
Fit: It ran a tiny bit big. I'm normally a 2 & 4 when I RTR, but this time I feel like I should have gotten a 0 & 2. 2R was the perfect length for reasonable heels. Sleeves fit fine. I wore a stick-on bra with no back and it worked great. Amazingly easy process - RTR was able to get everything to me right before I left for my trip and I returned it the next day after the event. I also rented the earrings - they sparkled and I'm so happy I got them to go with the dress. I'm so happy I went with this dress - definitely am going to RTR again soon!

Unfortunately while the color and design of this dress are gorgeous it isn't made for curves.

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented the dress because of the color and design as an alternative for a black tie wedding. Unfortunately because the dress has no boning it does not hold the shape of a body in the way that I had hoped. I think that this dress would be perfect if I didn't have boobs that needed more support.

I was so excited to wear this dress but I was disappointed with the length of the dress. I'm only 5'7" and I would have liked for the dress to at least cover my shoes. The color is purple not a red burgundy. I really like the shape though, it showed of my small waist and curves.

I wear a size 0 but there was only a 2 left. It was big a little in places but it worked out fine. It is very elegant and feminine but still very chic. It is very edgy yet beautiful.

Beautiful but runs large

Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I'm usually a four or six, but all that was available was a 2L and a 4R, so I chanced it. I'm so glad I got the 2L because a) any shorter and I wouldn't have been able to wear it, and b) any bigger and it would have sagged off of me. UPDATE: When I took off my bra, (which you have to to wear the dress) it was too big to work

Didn't fit right...

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
The back (the part I was most worried about) actually looked good. It was the upper part of the dress that was much baggier/ill-fitting than I had expected. I'm glad I ordered this dress a few weeks prior to my schools prom (just to try it on), so that I could decide NOT to order it again for the actual event.

This dress runs large in the hip area.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress runs large in the hips. I usually wear a 2R or a 4R so that's what I ordered. The dress was short in both sizes and very large and loose in the hips. If you have small hips I would not suggest renting this dress. I was unable to wear it to my event because it fit so poorly. I have a larger bust and it fit great up top, just not on the bottom.

The dress is easy to stretch, so it doesn't fit your body perfectly. The site says the regular size is long enough to wear with heels, but for me it was pretty short even without heels. But I could still rock it and looked really nice :)

I didn't end up wearing either size of this dress. It fit horribly and hit halfway down my calves. (I'm 5'8 but still.) The color was very dull as well. Luckily my back up dress was fantastic!

This was a back-up dress.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I did not choose to wear this dress to my event. I put it on and it felt a little matronly. The color is much more purple than it shows in the photo on the website. Also, the under-slip is longer than the lace and I felt it look very odd. Overall, I would not recommend this dress for many women.

The dress is a 3/5 star and the customer service is a 5/5. So average 4.

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress was WAY too large, frayed at the bottom, washed out and completely ruined by the bad laundering jobs. The inner lining of the dress was stretched out longer than the main part. The skirt, instead of looking like the picture, wasn't sharp and looked like an old, hapless nylon skirt your mom threw out. However, it IS a beautiful dress - probably got stretched out because previous customers who wore it wore should have worn a bigger size, and then tried to wash it in their machine. Please, if I'm going to pay so much for a designer dress, I don't want it to be in tatters! But their customer service is one of the best! Prompt and very courteous. So advice, I'd go in person to see any of these dresses before putting an order. (BTW, go one and two dress sizes down for this particular dress)

It was a gorgeous open back but it looked cheap. Was also a very dull color & I read the reviews & saw it was short so I got the 0L just in case. Well the lining under the dress came out at least 2 inches longer than the actual lace! I was so disappointed I couldn't wear this dress. Hopefully I'll have better luck next time.

I rented this dress as a backup to another dress I got from RTR. I didn't end up wearing this dress because unfortunately this dress does not hide unflattering curves if you have them. The size was true to fit but I don't think this is a dress for someone if you have a tummy.

The open-back gives this conservative dress a lot of personality. It was perfect!

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is super comfortable, so if your formal event is really long, never fear. The length was definitely shorter than expected. I'm usually a 00 or 0, but the 0 was inches shorter than usual, and that was without heels! I'm definitely glad I order the 2; the length made up for a slightly less body-hugging dress. Short girls, this dress is for you! I was initially concerned about the open back since, height-wise, I wasn't sure what I was getting myself into... but that open back ended up being sized perfectly for my frame.

Very beautiful and elegant. Runs Very large. I ordered a 2 and a 0, and could have worn the 0, but it was a bit tight on my neck so I wore the bigger size. Definitely go one size down for your backup. Beautiful lace detail, and the dress was a lot more light weight than it looked. You'll love it!

Ended up not wearing the dress.

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress runs large and is very forgiving/stretchy. I ended up not wearing it for two reasons: there is zero support in the bodice, so unless you like how your chest looks braless in a t-shirt I recommend passing up on this dress as an option. Because of the open back and lace over shoulders, you have to have a special bra or tape. Didn't work for me. I would also add that the dress is casual because of the fabric; it is something you'd expect on a dress for day, not a floor-length gown. So, although the fit was flattering, the fact that that the fabric was nothing special made this dress too 'everyday' for my black tie event, so I shopped a friend's closet instead.

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress fit perfect except that it was a tad bit short. I'm 5'2" and without heels on the dress just touched my toes. I decided to wear 4 inch heels, even thought the dress was short with the heels on, it didn't look terrible, so I went with it, but definitely wish the Long size was avaiable. Other than it being too short, it was a beautiful dress. I got tons of compliments and would defintely recommend this rental to anyone.

Loved this dress!

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size

I wore this dress for a black tie event while I was 4 1/2 months pregnant. I loved this dress and so did everyone at the event. I've never received so many compliments in one night! This dress was perfect for me because I didn't want anything that was too tight in the mid section, but I still wanted to look sexy! Before I got pregnant I was a size 6R, so I was probably a size 8 when I wore the dress. It fit perfect. If you are over 5'5" I would suggest ordering a long size. The dress hit right at my ankles, so it worked for me. I wish I could have kept this dress, I loved it so much!

Dress was defective and very short.

Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Dress arrived with the slip lining hanging out of the bottom, by 6". I shortened the lining (to fix the dress). I am only 5' tall and this dress barely touched the ground in my stocking feet. Definitely not long enough to wear with heels for a formal affair. The color is purple, not wine/bordeaux like in the pic. The fabric is like a cotton/spandex and kind of cheap looking. Might work for someone in their teens, like a prom dress or something.

Size worn: 8L

I ended up sending this dress back because the fit was just wrong in every possible way. Because of the backless nature of it, if you are at all hourglass then the dress is just baggy in the middle because there's no structure around the waist. It was also waaaaaay too short. I'm tall, but even with no shoes on the dress was at my ankles. The top and sleeves were fine.

I felt really beautiful and comfortable.

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I would have never chosen this dress. The stylist was extremely helpful. I have never been so comfortable both with the way my body looked, and with the way the dress felt. The dress was great I am not a picky person the style and fit trumped the fact that the lining was about two inches longer than the lace and the dress looked a bit wash worn in the hem and leather collar. If you have had four kids, never work out, but still want to look and feel great, this dress is a must. I loved it!
