Felt like the belle of the ball

Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
True size 8 fit. I typically wear size 8 in any dress. I wear 8-10 in jeans and Medium top. I picked 8L so I could wear tall heels and it was perfect. I'm not sure if the 8R would have been much shorter but it worked great for me. I wear Regular-Long in my jeans as well (Old Navy Jeans = Long, Joe's or citizens = regular length). Flat footed I'm 5'8" I'm not busty by an means but I'm not flat either. This dress worked perfectly! My hips are what I consider the biggest part of my body. This dress hid that well. I felt comfortable in it all night and got lots of compliments. I could wear a regular bra and undergarments which was nice. Overall I was well pleased with my RTR choice

This was my first experience with RTR. Imagine my delight when the dress arrived and still had the tags on it. I was the first person to wear this beautiful designer gown! I will definitely rent from RTR again.

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is even more beautiful in person. The sequins are actually a mix of matte black and gunmetal gray, which creates a subtle pattern on the dress. The result is an elegant gown that shimmers with every movement. The straps are edged in a raw silk and the fringy effect is so modern and chic. The back of the dress is slightly longer than the front which creates a slight train when you walk--so fun! The dress fit perfectly in the hips and waist, but the top was too tight, even for my moderate bustline. I was SO disappointed, and I really wanted to wear the dress, so I got creative! If you look closely you can see that the dress has an inset waist, so I decided to zip the back of the dress just up to the inset waist. I tucked the unzipped part of the top under and secured it with a bit of fashion tape. So, instead of a higher scoop neck back, I created a plunging bare back dress. SO sexy--I actually liked it much better than the scoop back and it fit my bustline perfectly!

A Tennessee Waltz

Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is gorgeous. The sequin detailing is exquisit and it really serves as a statement gown. However, my waist is 25" and my hips are 38.5" and the gown was simply too loose under the bust line. The gown fit on my hips well but here was extra fabric when zipped correctly. I am curious if I could have fit into the 0L. Like a previous reviewer, I also fashion taped the dress into an open back in order to cinch in the dress. I don't consider my bust line small, but I did not fill the dress out the way that I wanted to, even after the cinching. I did get compliments on the dress but next time I think I will go for something with an empire waist or more tailored to a hourglass figure. On a side note, my order was incorrect from RTR (they sent the wrong dress in the size I requested) but this did not compromise me having a gown to wear to the event. Returning them was a breeze and I will use RTR for my next formal event.

I never received this dress because it was unable to be delivered in time but I am still righting a entry to talk about how truly supporting and helpful the people of rtr are. They not only called and emailed me right away but allowed me to pick out another dress regardless of price. They ever gave me possible suggestions to substitute the dress and the new dres I received was still brought on time. I hope this is helpful information for you in your future purchase. Instead of true to size, I wish I could submit true to support you to make sure you receive the best customer service possible.

numerous compliments throughout the evening, being able to wear a beautiful affordable dress

Size worn: 10R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I'm 5'3" and normally wear a 6 or an 8 so after reading reviews that the dress is form fitting and may run small I decided to order the 8R and the 10R. If you don't have a pretty flat stomach then the dress will be tight. The 8 fit me but I chose to go with the 10 just so I could have some extra breathing room. The hips were more of a relaxed fit so no problems there. The length on me was exactly the same as the model in the photo in that the bottom of the dress just brushed the floor. The straps were too big on me but I secured them down with some fashion tape. Overall I loved the dress and received numerous compliments throughout the evening. I wore this to a formal black tie boxing event and the dress fit with the evening perfectly.

I absolutely loved this dress. I have never felt so fabulous! A lot of the reviews said the dress looks gunmetal, but i felt it was a true matte black. There is not a lot of give in the dress, and it is very form fitting, so i would recommend some spanx. I was able to wear a strapless bra as well, so that was a plus. I received endless compliments all night and I can't wait to order from rent the runway again!

Beautiful dress that fit well and very comfortable.

Size worn: 12L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Loved the dress and fit well. I wear a size 10 dress but ordered a 12 because of the style and previous reviews and it fit perfectly. So I would suggest ordering 1 size up. It was disappointing to find out that the underslip hung 2" below the front of the dress when I tried it on! After reviewing the dress, the entire waistband of the under slip had come apart from the top of the dress ( this is how I received it) and I had to use the dress tape and pins to pin it under and hold the seam of the waistband together. It worked but I felt like the dress was not carefully looked over before I got it. In all fairness, you would not have know the slip was longer until you tried it on! I definitely would rent another dress from Rent THe Runway but would suggest you look over your item carefully before you wear it.

The bride had all her bridesmaids order a long black dress from Rent the Runway (all of the dresses in the group picture are from RTR). Everyone's came on time and they loved them! I was very nervous about the fit but glad it came with 2 sizes. I did not zip the dress all the way up in the back and folded it in to give it a low back. The only issue I had with the fit was the extra room in the top but I am a B and even though I ordered an extra long, it was almost too short. Overall, loved the dress and the process of ordering/returning.

Overall fit: True to Size

The dress fit perfectly, although I did decide to invest in a tummy smoother because it shows everything! I will say that the waste is very small. I am actually a 30F and where size 0 pants. Most 2s fit in the chest but are loose in the waste; this dress was snug through the waste and hips. It also fit well in the chest. It did show cleavage but felt very secure and appropriate. I got many compliments on the dress.

Such a flattering fit. The cut on top lets you wear a regular bra, and the neckline is flattering to any size chest. The dress is heavy, but that helps it fall nicely to the ground. I really loved that the sequins were patterned.

A little short in the length but a great dress!

Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This was my backup dress and I am glad that I had it. This dress fit my body best and like other reviews it gives the illusion of some curves in the body of the dress even though I am very straight up and down. The problem I had was that the dress must have shrunk because in the front the body of the dress was shorter than the lining. The dress hit right at my ankles without shoes on. I had to wear a low heel and even then it was not a floor length gown. I used the fashion tape that was provided to hem the lining up so it would not be seen. This part was dissapointing but nonetheless the rest of the dress hugged me and felt and looked really good. I wore a stick on strapless and backless bra that was a good idea. The dress was comfortable all night. I would recommend to get this in a long size if you are over 5'0 so you can wear heels. Overall a great dress.

Too short!

Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I'm 5'10, 124 lbs. I rented thiis dress in a size 2 long and a size 4 long. Unfortunately, both were too short and hit at my ankles. The model in the photo is apparently also 5'10", but she's either slouching and not wearing shoes - or she's shorter than reported. Also, oddly, on the 2L and 4L, the lining of the dress in the front was longer than the sequin sheath on top - making the dress look unfinished. Sad!

A beautiful sparkly dress!

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size

This was such a great dress. It hugged my curves and was a hit without being overly flashy. I got a lot of compliments! In terms of fit, it does not have any give so if you have a very large chest, I'd order a size up. Also, I am 5'4 but I ended up wearing flats with this dress because it was the right length with flats. If I had worn 3 inch heels, 2 inches would have been very visible below the dress. Overall, I really loved this dress and I wish I could keep it!!

This dress was spectacular, and I felt fantastic in it. I have absolutely no complaints.

The dress doesn't have adjustable straps, so beware that you might have to wear a strapless bra or cups in order to fill in the center-pinched bust. The sequins are not at ALL overpowering. They are very subtle and tasteful and do not overwhelm the dress at all. The dress is also lined very nicely so it doesn't at all itch and holds up beautifully over the course of several hours. If you have a small waist (even without a larger bust or hips), it highlights all curves perfectly. It was a gorgeous dress. I'm so glad I got it for the black tie wedding I attended.

I have a classic pear figure, with a waist that is much narrower than my hips and I'm short, which makes it a challenge to find something that doesn't need alterations. The length and fit of the dress was perfect - I was able to wear 3" heels without fear of tripping. Very flattering and very pretty in person the picture doesn't do it justice.

Overall fit: True to Size

I'd put on a few pounds by the time December had rolled around, so I wasn't sure how good I'd feel about wearing a slinky dress to a winter Repeal Day ball. This little number made my short, curvy body actually look somewhat long and lean! My friend said I looked like Jessica Rabbit. With high heels, the length didn't turn out to be too much of an issue, though I ended up picking up the hem when walking stairs or long distances to avoid tripping. This dress also really fit the mood of a vaguely Prohibition era-themed formal, but it would work for a range of black tie events and a range of ages.

Love this dress -- fit was spot on. I should have ordered the long version (2L) though instead of the regular (2R) because the latter was way too short and hit me just below the ankles, showing my shoes! I wanted to order both lengths but they weren't available. Ideally the gown should graze the floor which for me would have likely been the 2L. I am 5'7 and wore 3.5 inch heels.

I ordered the OR and 2R. 2R would have worked, but the fabric bunched a little and it was obviously too big. The 0R was perfect, with the exception of the length. I am 5'4.5" and I wore 3.5 inc. heels. I could have easily worn the 0L, but I think that it was okay. I have a small frame, but I have a large chest so I always like to wear a dress that allows for me to wear my regular bra. This was perfect. I highly recommend this dress.

Tons of compliments, both in person and online!

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Wore this for a NYE wedding! Length is very short in the front (longer train in the back)- I think the designer purposefully intended for the wearer's shoes to show in the front. The model is bending her knees to conceal this. Since I hate high heels, I purposefully ordered the R length even though I knew it would be short, so that I could get away with comfy 2-3 inch heels. The 0 wasn't available so I ordered the 2R and 4R as backup. The 2 fit me, but I chose the 4 because it was about an inch longer, so that my heels were concealed in the front and yet my dress didn't drag too much in the back. The shiny black heavyweight material concealed the fact that the 4R was slightly loose on me. I danced all night in my low heels and my feet thanked me. :) I recommend this dress highly, just make sure to be aware of the unusual length (and sightly tighter fit) when ordering sizes.

I am 5'4" and usually wear size 4 but I ordered 4R and 6R. The 4 fit but it was tight across the chest ( I am a D cup). The 6 fit well but I am short waisted so I had to pin the straps to my bra so it would stay up. It all worked out fine. Also, the front of the skirt is shorter than the back so the 6 was better for that reason also.

The fit was perfect!

Size worn: 10L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was perfect for the formal event that I wore it to. It definitely fits true to size, but it is snug in the hip and abdomen region. So if you aren't partial to a tight fit throughout the body of a dress, then you may want to consider a different style! I also received many compliments which was a bonus! There are two small cons to this gown. The all-over sequin design was a tad itchy in the beginning, but I adjusted to it in a short while. Also, I ordered the Long version of the dress and still had to wear my shortest heels with it to make sure my ankles didn't show. So if you're planning on wearing sky high heels, you may want to reconsider! Overall this dress was great! I would definitely use Rent The Runway again!

Dress fits great, short but I am only 5'2" and it fits without taping it up. I can vacillate between a 0 and a 2 but the 2 fit better so I could actually eat without holdling in my stomach!

I wore this for Prom and it was great!

Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I have pretty thin shoulders so the straps of the dress were a little loose on me. But in the end it was actually a good thing since it forced me to stand up straight all night. This dress is pretty much great for anyone. The bust area was made so that anyone could easily wear it. Even though I didn't completely fill it out, the sequins made it so that you could not tell. The sequins are not the normal shiny cheap stuff you often see but are matte black and form a design. I was worried at first that it would be a scratchy dress to wear but it actually turned out to be incredibly comfy and I had no problem wearing it for 6 hours. This is an incredibly classy dress that looks even better in person. It's one of those dresses that would look great on any age and looks amazing up close and from a distance. I was so sad to return it! Thank you rtr for the great dress and for sending it to me an extra two days earlier than I had ordered it!

I ordered both the 10L and the 12L in this dress. I couldn't get the 10 even close to zippering. The 12 fit but was a bit snug in the chest-- whether that's due to my chest or the dress I am not sure! It was a cute dress but my heels did catch on the back of the dress. There were some loose strings but nothing too obvious.

This dress was perfect for a military ball. Conservative and flattering.

Size worn: 10L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I am nearly 5'11". I wore completely flat shoes and the dress was still not floor length. I almost didn't wear it because it was shorter than I expected it to be. It actually stretched a little during the course of the evening to make it slightly longer. However, out of my choices, it was the most flattering. The underskirt was longer than the sequence overlay and the fabric was very delicate. I liked that the dress didn't hug my hips (spanx helped too.) The weight of the dress made it look really chic. Although it did not need much by way of accessories, I rented the Silver Mesh Glam Clutch, Kensington Drop Earrings and Silver Glitz bangle bracelets (and I'm glad I did - they looked great.) I love the fact that I can wear something this beautiful and I don't have to worry about keeping it for 10 years to get the value out of the price paid. I felt really beautiful dressed up in the gown, especially with all of the accessories. Overall, renting my outfit was a good experience.

My only complaint was that it wasn't very long. Even in the long i felt like the dress was short. Especially because there was a mini train and you couldn't even tell.. And I'm not very tall. I am only 5'4". Regardless, I got SO MANY compliments! Everyone was asking me where I got the dress from and how much weight i had lost (when in reality i didn't lose any weight) this dress is beyond amazing. So happy I rented such a perfect dress!

Very beautiful dress

Size worn: 12R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This is a beautiful dress. However this was my fourth attempt at a dress and it barely zipped up one me. This was a suggestion from an RTR stylist who helped me since my first few dresses didn't fit. I was out of time and in San Francisco for a wedding and I had no other choice, I had the dresses delivered to the hotel room. I was told this dress looked nice on me even though I don't think that the picture does a great job of showing that. I ordered the 12 since my previous order were 10s and none were even close to zipping up top. If you have any stomach bulge or muffin top, you may want to wear spanx since it's very form fitting. It was hard to go to the bathroom since the sequins would get stuck on each other when I pulled my dress up. The sequins would get stuck pretty much any time I lifted the dress. I could see snapped strings too and strings coming out. You could only see them up close though. I did get a lot of compliments. The wedding had an "oscar party attire" request which I thought this would be great for but once I got there, compared to everyone else, I felt over dressed. I just kept my head up and kept confident since there was no turning back with the dress. It became a bit tight after dinner on the torso area but by then I had some alcohol in me so I didn't pay too much attention to it. The one great thing about this dress is that I had a lot of fun dancing in it since it was long so I used the skirt of the dress as a dancing prop, can can dancing type of thing. It's a beautiful dress but I really didn't like it on me and I will not rent this again. Customer service is great though, they stayed on the phone with me for over an hour trying to find me things to have it delivered overnight. I may not be renting this dress again but I will keep on being an RTR customer.

Most amazing NYE party ever!

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Great fit on my body type. Top provided enough room for my large bust, and is sewn to provide room in the top even though it is so tight. This could leave some loose fabric though if a renter has a small chest. The fitted waist is beautiful, but keep in mind that this dress does not stretch. I have narrow hips and a bit of a backside. I found this dress accentuated all parts perfectly. I easily danced in this dress until 2 am, it is so comfortable, no itching or rubbing sequins. They are sewn onto the outer layer which is almost lace-like, this makes the dress flow so pretty when you walk. It is slightly shorter in the front hem, it is intended to be that way, so have the right shoes when you wear it as well. I wore classic black patent 2 1/2 inch pointy toe pumps, a high ponytail, and blue fur jacket, for a slightly edgy black-tie optional NYE wedding at a hotel in Beverly Hills.

I've never felt more glamorous!

Size worn: 10L
Rented for: Wedding
Zac Posen is my all-time favorite designer. The pictures don't do this gown justice, the detail throughout, even in the sleeve, is perfection. The reviews from the other ladies are spot-on. It is incredibly fitted in the waist so be sure to order one size larger (just in case!). I'm 5'6, 158 pounds, size 34D and the 10 was perfect despite typically wearing an 8. The dress is made to come off the floor in the front even though the model's picture doesn't show that. So the 10 long was definitely the right choice (thank you other reviewers). I wore this dress to a black tie wedding and received compliments all night long from men and women (even the bride and groom!). I didn't want to take it off and had a hard time sending it back. Beautiful gown, masterfully designed. This dress made me feel beautiful and confident all night. RTR takes good care of the gowns as it was flawless. This was my first experience with RTR - can't wait to rent again soon!

What better way to ring in the new year than in style??

Size worn: 10R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This was the first time I had used Rent the Runway and it wont be the last. I needed a dress last minute for a New Years Eve gala and thought Id give it a shot. Every dress I wanted to rent was sold out and I was getting discouraged. I came across this one and was nervous because of all the sequins being too heavy or scratching my arms. I also read the reviews and everyone had said the dress was too short. Being that I was running out of time I figured Id give it a shot. The 10L was sold out so I ordered the 10R and hoped for the best. When it arrived it fit like a glove. It was flattering and was not too heavy. It also did not bother my arms at all. It was a little tight in the bust area but it gave me great cleavage! It was on the shorter side and you could see my feet with heels on but I paired the dress with some fun shoes and the look came together great! If you're my size and you are looking for a dress to cover most of your shoes then def go with the long size. The sequins were two-tone giving it a nice pattern that I wasnt expecting. Overall - great dress!

Didn't even come close to fitting.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented this dress for a formal charity party that I attended last evening. I normally wear a size 6 or 8 in dresses but after looking at the reviews and the sizing chart I ended up choosing to rent a size 8R and 10R. I definitely scrutinized the reviews and saw that they dress was made for pear-shaped people so I thought this dress would be a great fit. However, neither dress fit well at all. Both dresses were baggy in the chest and stomach area and so tight in the hips that I could barely move. I have a pear-shaped body but wear a size 8-10 in jeans so my hips are not extremely large. I ended up having to go out and buy a separate dress for the event. Looking through these reviews again, my only conclusion is that some of the reviewers were not 100% honest with their height/weight stats or the size that they wore/normally wear. With that being said, I had no issues with the condition of the dress or how they arrived. The dresses showed up a day earlier than I was promised which was nice also. I recommend the RTR company, however, just a word of warning regarding the sizing.
