Amazing fit
This dress was fabulous. Fit in all the right places and was comfortable through out the whole night. The only thing I couldn't raise my arms fully up but not a deal breaker.

The dress was a gorgeous cobalt...very classy, yet tastefully sexy. I got lots of compliments!
As some other reviewers have noted, the arms are a little snug. Not a deal breaker, but good to know.

I loved the dress and received so many compliments
This was my first rent the runway dress and I loved it! It was comfortable, flattering and vibrant. The only slight issue I had was that it was a little long, but I also have stubby legs. Overall it was a great experience and I can't wait to rent my next dress.

Lady in Blue
Loved loved loved this dress. It definitely compliments the curves in a FANTASTIC way! Received tons of compliments. This dress was perfect for the evening wedding. Because my shoes were so snazzy, I ended up not wearing the mystery bling, which were an amazing pair of Oscar de la Renta clip on earrings. This dress has amazing stretch and holds "the girls" well. I didn't need to wear a bra, and it was still flattering. Another excellent rental!

Used this for my engagement photos
This dress fit great. I can always use a little more room in the hips and less in the waist in almost any dress I wear, but you couldn't tell in our photos. The only restriction was the arms, as when I tried to do any overhead movement I couldn't get my arms higher than chest/shoulder height.

Flattering and stunning
I was singing in my friend's wedding and wanted to look nice. My original dress wasn't available and I had this as a backup and was worried about the fit - it fit very true to size, like a glove, and the fabric is super smoothing and forgiving. Has stretch to it! Enough stretch that I could kill the dance floor at the wedding with an energetic rendition of the macarena ;) Got a ton of compliments!

Great color and perfect for a wedding
This dress was a hit and received a lot of compliments, the color is gorgeous. I'm 6'1" so it is hard to find a cocktail dress that isn't too short; this one hit right above my knees perfectly. It fit great overall, but my only complaint would be the arms are a little tight. The left arm was tighter at the top than the right for some reason, but didn't stop me from wearing the dress. After having it on a little bit, I didn't notice anymore. The material was thick but light enough for an outdoor wedding mid September; the lining did stick some if you started to sweat, but nothing a little tug couldn't fix. Overall great dress and would recommend for tall ladies!

Very Pretty Blue
I actually did not wear this dress but it looked great on and the fabric was really nice. The color was beautiful but thought it was too dark for a fall beach wedding.

Both modest and sexy
I ordered the 6 but was sent the 8 and made it work because I loved the dress so much. (The 6 would've fit perfect!) The length is modest and perfectly compensates for all of the bare skin above the chest. It was the perfect wedding guest dress for an early fall outdoor wedding.

Great dress, small in the arms!
I loved this dress! I got a lot of compliments on it all evening. The only negative hung I'd say is that the arms were very tight. The size 6 fit me better than the 8, but the arms were unfortunately too small for me me to get them up to fit and look right :-/

Everyone loved this dress on me. I got tons of compliments. I felt stylish and pretty.
The color is beautiful and the fit is very flattering. I usually wear a size 8 or 10 and I wore the 8 and it fit perfectly. This dress is a great dress for women of almost any age. As a women in my mid 50's I felt great in it. Two people at the wedding were going to try and rent it for other events they were going to. I loved wearing it.

Sexy and sophisticated!
Finding a dress that is flattering, sexy and not too short can be a problem - I'm 54 and don't want to look like I'm trying to compete with women in their 20's. I am 5'9 and weigh 127 lbs. This dress hugged my body in all the right places and the length was perfect. I usually wear a size 4 but the 2 was more flattering. I felt terrific and received many compliments.

The dress is classy and sexy at the same time. Definitely recommend!
I'm 5'2" & 117 lbs and the size 0 was perfect. The dress fell right above my knees and clung to all the right places--very flattering. The arms were a bit snug but nothing too uncomfortable. I actually appreciated the snugness since it made the sleeves stay in place. The royal blue color is gorgeous. Less boring than a navy but not overly flashy. I paired it with nude sandal heels and a red bag and a simple gold bracelet. Perfect summer to fall transition event dress. Super elegant and classy. One con is that the inner cloth layer kept riding up so I kept having to pull it down whenever I walked a few steps. Not that much of an hassle but something that you have to be mindful of.

Cobalt blue and great cut!
Fit true to size, comfortable and good for travel. The wrinkles shook out once dress was on. I didn't even notice the boning that other reviews mentioned, only at end of the night. Not an issue for me. Overall it is comfortable, different for me-- I usually don't wear off the shoulder. Fun for a change. Good pop of color. Good length, I don't like minis. I wore with strappy, sparkly not-too-high heels, and gel pasties instead of a bra. Highly recommend!

The color is amazing and this is definitely a head turner!
This dress runs large. I needed a size down, but wore the 4 which was baggy on me. The length is midi, so it is very classy for a formal event and the color and styling is very dramatic. Loved, just wish I knew to order a size down!

RTR Team Review
Great color and flirty style! Love the unique cut of this dress. It was a little tight in the biceps but fit well in the chest; I'm a 32D and it felt true for a 6. Color is great! It's not forgiving at all in the midsection though, so be prepared.

Fit like a dream! Very easy slip on, very comparable and stayed in place all night! Wore it in San Diego and it breathed well, never felt hot. If you're wanting a dress to hug curves perfectly ,but still look elegant and classic this is the dress for you!

The dress!!
It was a great dress!! I will totally rent this again, very flattering. I was a little nervous about the arms and not being able to lift them over my head due to the cut of the off the shoulder which happens a lot with this cut but this was not the case. Loved this dress and very comfortable!!

Great dress for a dinner date and it ran true to size. I'm 5'3" and 105lbs and the 2 was perfect.
The fit was comfortable for me, just remember that the strapless bra can make for a tight bust fit.

The event itself was wonderfully detailed and executed perfectly. The dress topped the evening off.
However, the dress made me feel beautiful and chic. The dress had a brilliant color, material and was cut perfectly. It was true to size and luxurious!

Easy to wear and numerous compliments!
Fits great and super easy to wear. I was stopped by many people who wanted to compliment me on my dress. I specifically chose this dress because I knew it would light up the stage, and it didn't disappoint. This dress looked phenomenal under stage lights (which can be notoriously awkward), and was easy to wear - I didn't have to worry about the neckline or shoulders slipping. Highly recommend this dress. You'll stand out in the crowd!

Fitted and vibrant
This dress was a pleasant surprise. I wasn't sure what to expect based on the reviews but ended up loving it. It's true that the top doesn't fall down but keep in mind that the arm holes in the dress are pretty tight. I wore a strapless bra with this dress. My only complaint is there is some side ribbing that is meant to structure the dress but when you sit down it kinda pokes you. It wasn't unbearable just a little uncomfortable. The color of this dress is amazing and very vibrant.

Unique and sexy!
This dress was so fun! I had not worn a style quite like this before, and while there was some wiring on the sides that other reviewers complained about, I actually didn't feel it much at all. With a vibrant blue color, the exposed shoulders and fitted form was sexy without being over the top; perfect for a classy evening wedding!
