Great color and super comfy fit
I usually wear a 0 or 2 and I went with a 2 just so I wasn't suffocating in the dress and had dancing room. I received so many compliments

Great color, fit, and style
The dress runs small but knowing that ahead of time made my first rent the runway experience smooth sailing! The dress is well made and very flattering. The color is unique and bright. It was the perfect option for a summertime wedding. I highly recommend this dress (just order a size or two up)!

I really liked this dress and its unique cut, but ran small
Runs small - they didn't have the size 8 available and the 6 was too tight.

Loved the style & comfort of this dress!
The dress was a great fit & I liked the material. It was form fitting, but not overly stiff. I really liked the neckline cut & it paired nicely with a statement necklace. The bottom of the dress had an interesting hem line & was a little long on me (I'm 5'6"), but with heels it looked fine. Overall, would definitely recommend renting!

This dress was absolutely beautiful! The color was on point and the fit was perfect! This dress really accentuates your curves- that even my husband told me I should buy the dress! I felt like a celebrity because I received so many compliments! Thanks RTR for an awesome experience!

Second time renting a dress. Delivered on time and in GREAT condition!
Tight fit but thick material so it was comfortable. The zipper worked really well and the color was incredible for the summertime with a tan. The neckline and bottom cut added a nice flair to a pretty plain dress. Added detail with nail polish & clutch. I wish I owned this dress!

Beautiful!! I was a stand out at the wedding.
Gorgeous rich color, nice thick fabric, fits tight like a glove, hugging the curves. I have small chest and wide hips, but the fit was amazing, Really beautiful dress, i loved it so much, i want to buy it now. Got a lot of compliments. Fits true to size, maybe a tiny bit snug on the hips, but was still very comfortable. Ladies, this one is a winner.

Fabulous color & fit
This dress had a very flattering cut and thick fabric with a little give. The length was perfect, falling just above the knee for me (the asymmetrical part of the hemline was just past the knee). It was a tad tight when seated but I was still able to take my usual size.

I got SO MANY compliments on this dress. The color was beautiful!
I normally wear a 2-4 in dresses but I definitely needed a 6 in this. It runs small and is supposed to be tight.

Fit like a glove, so comfortable and sexy!!
Absolutely LOVED this dress! I felt sexy and beautiful all night. The size was perfect though pretty tight when I first put it on, so I danced around and tried to loosen it a little before the event and the helped. I would do a size up for the second size, they just didn't have then size avail. when I needed it. Nothing but amazing things to say about this dress!

Great dress! Runs small
Love the color and the cut. Usually wear a 0/2 but have a rear so the 4 was still pretty snug around the hips. The neckline was awesome and I went for a bracelet instead of a necklace for jewelry.

Didn't end up wearing this dress because it wasn't very flattering on my body type.
I have a bit of a booty but a small waist/stomach and the middle of the dress was loose yet the bottom kept bunching up. The top was also snug across my chest.The fabric was also not very forgiving so I would suggest Spanx if you have any curves.

First RTR experience--amazing!!
I LOVE this dress. Very comfortable and flattering and I got so many compliments! I am very happy I read the other reviews because I would recommend sizing up. I am normally a 6 and while the 6 fit me, it was pretty tight and I wouldn't have had much room to dance. The 8 fit perfect and was the perfect length. I am a 34DD and I did not need to wear a bra. This was my first RTR experience and I couldn't be happier with this service. I have another wedding coming up and I will definitely be using RTR again!

Unique cut, unique color = compliments
The color of this dress is amazing and really pops on any skintone. The cut around the shoulders is perfect and creates strong angles. I typically wear a 0/2 but based on other reviews ordered a 2/4 (thank you other reviewers!). The size 4 was the perfect fit. I don't usually wear form fitting dresses, so if I were to go that route again, this would be the dress. It was a good length and just enough sex appeal without being over the top.

Amazing color, comfy material, funky cuts, beautiful dress!
This dress was amazing and I highly recommend! It is exactly as pictured - color and cut. Such a beautiful color, with such a flattering cut - I received many compliments! It was so comfortable with it being a soft somewhat stretchy but quality material and easy to dance in! I am 5'4, about 120-125 lbs (before/after wedding cake is served LOL) and a 36C - I ordered the 6 and it fit perfectly and was able to wear a strapless bra no problem. Absolutely would recommend this dress and would definitely order again!!

Beautiful color runs small!
Such a unique dress I highly recommended it! My only issue is it does run VERY small. I'm usually a 4 in dresses and I wore an 8 in this. I still had to pull down and readjust throughout the night. If you have any sort of a bum I would recommended 1-2 sizes larger! Besides that such a beautiful dress and a nice length for a formal occasion!

Perfect Party Dress!
This was the perfect dress to wear for my brother's recent engagement party. Sometimes, it is difficult for me to find dresses that fit my frame, but this dress fit like a glove. The bright color and unique hemline made it a great party dress. It's very form fitting, yet still classy. I received many compliments and felt great wearing it. My future sister in law (pictured with me) also wore Rent the Runway and looked beautiful as the bride to be!

One of my favorites from RTR!
This dress was really sexy and fun to wear for a fundraising event. The color is a really pretty, bright magenta color that stands out. I am always comfortably a size 6 in dresses, but this one felt a little snug as it definitely runs smaller. Very tight around the chest, armpits and neck. I have a small chest, so if you are bigger in that area you should definitely size up. I wore the sticky, clear boob cup things from Victoria's Secret, but the material is thick enough you could probably go without a bra. Overall, I highly recommend this dress!

Pretty but tight!
Didn't end up wearing this one because I had another option that fit slightly better. This was pretty but SNUGGGG. I tried it on without a bra and I barely zipped it up (And I'm just a 34B). This is pretty, but recommend getting a size up just in case. I couldn't imagine dancing around in this dress either given how restricting it was from the waste up. Still, it looks pretty on!

Gorgeous color!
Evidently this color seems to follow me. I have rented three of this color dress from RTR, but they are all gorgeous. This is my favorite. The length on this is appropriate enough on me to wear to work (without tugging at the hem constantly) and the asymmetric hem makes it sexy enough to wear out. The cut of the neck makes it HOT but I wear a lab coat so that didn't show, so for me it went day to night perfectly because of the high collar. LOVE this dress and the fact that E&J Make it in about 7 colors makes me so happy. Will rent in all the other colors!!!

I loved this dress! The color and unique neckline are amazing! It definitely runs small. I usually wear a 4 or 6 and ended up wearing the 8. I would suggest ordering a size larger than normal. Would definitely recommend this dress!

Loved this dress!
I rented this dress for wedding and when it arrived it was pretty wrinkled. I was afraid I would damage it if I tried to iron it so I let it sit in the bathroom for a day to let the steam work it out. It fit very snug and usually I'm a size 0. I did not wear it to the wedding because I felt it was a bit too tight for a family wedding. I would definitely rent it again for another occasion and I would rent a back up size 4 as well.

An friend from high school told me I looked hot. A compliment from another fashionista is the best!
Pros: The fabic is nice and thick, yet has some good stretch to it. I was able to dance all night. The style is a fun twist of the typical bodycon dress, which makes it fun. The color is great too! Cons: This dress runs small, very small. I usually wear a 4-6, but knowing it was a bodycon I ordered the 6. All reviews said tot size up, so my backup was an 8. I should have went for the 8 and 10! The 8 fit but was a little tighter than I prefer. Size up for sure!

I'm petite on top and pretty curvy on the bottom. The 8 fit pretty well on the bottom half, but i had to stuff my bra a bit so the top would fit better.

Lots of compliments on the color of the dress.
Dress fits very tight, but comfortable. Don't expect to hide anything under the dress, as it is very form fititng. It was shorter than it looked in photos, but was the perfect length hitting me a few inches above the knee. Looked much better in person than it did in pictures.

Loved this dress and had fun dancing the night away with my best friends
I have a bigger butt and thighs, so I struggle with form fitting dresses. That said this one was perfect. I usually opt for a 4, but since this one was form fitting with little to no stretch I wound up wearing a 6. It fit perfectly. I loved the way this dress looked and fit. I got so many compliments on the dress, and the color was amazing in person.

The color on this dress was amazing. I also liked the cut, which was modern and different. Usually I wear an 8 or a 10, I chose the 10 and it was super tight BUT I think it's still worth it!

The color and fit were just as described
The size 8 was unavailable so I went with the 6 knowing the dress runs small. It fit but without spanx there was some bunching in the back. The spanx took care of that but I did have to be mindful to pull the dress down as it would intermittently ride up. Despite that, the dress was comfortable and flattering !
