This dress was absolutely perfect for Christmas this year. Elegant, classy- and the quality was obvious. My favorite I've worn from RTR!

Went up two sizes just to fit my hips/stomach/butt

This dress is classy, but my goodness is it tight in the stomach, hips and butt area. I pretty much get away with a size 4 when there is more give, but I had to go up two sizes all while my chest area looked OK in each size. If you are curvy size up and up again.

It being a gift

I'm 5' 8" 150 lbs. I typically wear a size 8. This dress was a very flattering dress but was too small.

Perfect for a winter wedding!

Loved this dress! Form fitting & flattering, although longer & more conservative style. The 0 was quite snug, so I wore the 2 to be more comfortable. Would rent this again :)

Didn't wear

I wanted to love this dress, but the fit was just off. It's very pretty, a nice fabric and the color was just as pictured. I usually wear a 4, so I ordered it in a 6 & 8 after reading reviews that it ran very small in the hips. Unfortunately, to get a flattering fit in the hips I really needed to wear the 8, but the top gaped at the armholes. I don't usually have trouble filling out the top in dresses, I'm a 32E, but the top was way too big.

Really nice piece but rather strange fit.

I really liked this dress but, while the top part was really snug, even without a bra on, the waist area was really large and my very slender, petite frame, look a bit pot-bellied. It was also a bit longer than I had expected, coming down to my ankles. I am only barely 5' 2 " though so I'm sure it would be a great length for someone a little taller.

Pleasantly purple

The dress is surprisingly small, the 8 fit me like a glove - didn't need a bra and might have even been slightly too tight in certain areas. The material is also stiffer than I expected. Beautiful shade of purple, slit with ruffle is unique. Felt good in the dress. Could dress up or down.

Rides up your hips... constant tug

Any larger and my tatas would fly out up top. Too small along the hips and I had to tug it down the entire event. If you don't have hips, it would be fine. Seriously... if you have hips, this dress will drive you bonkers.

Chic and unique!

Dress is definitely form fitting so I highly recommend spanx! It runs true to size but slightly on the smaller side so some women may prefer to size up.

Quality material. Looks exactly as pictured. It's just too tight. Not appropriate for venue I needed it for. Even if I sized up it just didn't hit in the right places

Cute dress for a winter wedding!

Got a lot of compliments on this dress! Wore it to a wedding. Would recommend getting your regular size and a size bigger. Ended up wearing the bigger size as it looked better.

Sleek and fitted silhouette, with plum-perfect color - made a keynote picture perfect

What a plum perfect, elegant look - tailored with just a hint of flounce and femininity. Great for an athletic build. This designer always runs 1 1/2 to 2 sizes small, so size up.

Classy and fun!

This dress was beautiful and fit like a glove! The structure and fabric of the dress made this such a classy outfit to wear to a friend's wedding. The front the dress cuts closer to your collarbone so I had to go with a strapless bra. The length was just past my knees and the ruffle added just the right amount of fun to the dress. I would rent again!

Show off your curve stunner!

This pick was a last minute exchange because the dress I rented did not work. I have a larger chest but could easily wear this without a bra, due to the great structure and thick, supportive material. It fit like a glove and I got compliments on how well it showcased my body all evening. It's a great plum color that lent itself to dressing up with colorful accents and was easy to move (and dance in!) all night. Definitely wanted to purchase it (maybe in red!) as a showstopper!

Great color and side ruffle slit added a little flirty style

Great dress and loved that I could wear a racerback bra with it. Does run a tad small, so I would recommend ordering one size up. Has a little stretch to it which made it comfortable.

Sassy and Classy!

This dress fit like a glove! It was perfect for the gala I attended. The material was thick and did not stretch. I got so many compliments! I was worried about the length because I'm so short, but it worked really well because it stayed fitted towards the bottom. 10/10 would recommend!

Beautiful and flattering dress.

I wore to a formal work function. Very flattering style; I received many compliments about the dress. Fabric lays well but has no give so consider sizing up. I'd rent it again.

So classy and so many compliments!

I read the reviews and I'm so glad I ordered a larger size than what I usually wear, because the back up size was perfect! The fabric was so comfortable with the right amount of stretch. The length was perfect for a spring wedding. Highly recommend!

Wish it fit better

I got this dress as a backup because I loved the color. This dress was a lot tighter than expected when I tried it on, I felt like I couldn't walk. Also it was longer than expected and went past my knees (I'm 5'5). Very disappointing, I never ended up wearing it

Beautiful, Form Fitting.

This dress was awesome. I received compliments through the evening. Perfect length; the flair is nice. Wear a razor back bra and ensure a friend is near to help zip it up. :)

It was such a beautiful dress!

Material was amazing, very flattering dress! I wore spanx just because it is form fitting. I am normally an 8, but the 8 was just a little too snug, so I'm happy i got the 10 as a backup! I felt like a million bucks in it & would rent again in a heartbeat!

Gorgeous dress

I was really happy I could get two dress sizes for the wedding I was going to since I wasn't quite sure what would fit. The dress looked so beautiful! I got so many compliments from family members and my mother in law! I'm very petite, 5'1", so the dress didn't fall as high up on me as it did on the model in the photo but I actually preferred the length on me. This was my first time using Rent the Runway and I'll definitely be using it again for more occasions!

Quality fabric and classy dress

Size 10 fit snugly on my 5' 6" 145lb body. The color was just right and the fabric had a nice feel. I loved the detail in the front and the slit.

I'm glad I read prior reviews about this running a little small. I usually wear a 2 but went with the 4 for this. It fit perfectly! Received lots of compliments from complete strangers. Will definitely rent again!

I did not wear this dress as it was too small.

This dress was too tight across the butt area to wear.
