Flirty, fun, perfect summer dress!

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I would LOVE to rent this again! I did not expect the boning in the sides of the dress, but it really worked well to support up top. As others have mentioned, the bust does plunge, but I felt it was still tasteful for a summer wedding. Also loved the tulle for a great, fun silhouette. I would agree that it errs on running a little small. I felt a tad tight in the bust, and the boning in my unit poked me on one side. Also, if there is a breeze beware and note it photographs a lot brighter with flash :) In all, highly recommend.

Had multiple people compliment the dress. Loved the skirt part because the tulle makes it a little puffy on the bottom. The ribbing in the chest area is a little tight! It definitely kept me from eating too much wedding cake.

Such a fun summer dress!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was so flattering and comfortable, although a little short, even for a short lady! I have pretty long legs for a 5'4" woman, so that may have contributed. The tulle lining made the dress really fun for the summer and made the silhouette very flattering. The sweetheart neckline was also really pretty and I wasn't pulling the dress up all night, which was a great thing for a strapless dress. I got so many compliments and I am fairly certain that I turned a few more ladies on to this website after wearing this cute frock. I'd highly recommend this dress to someone looking for a fun, summer dress that's easy to dance in!

I wore this dress for the Kentucky Derby Race Day. I got a ton of compliments!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
The dress is very tight fitting in bodice and has boning on the sides which can cut uncomfortably into your waist if you wear the dress all day like I did. It is well-shaped in the bodice so I did not even have to wear a bra with is. Also it is somewhat low-cut at the center bust but overall I loved wearing it. I wore a size 6 which is my usual size but it was very snug and kind of flattened my bust. I think it runs true to just slightly small for size. It is a light cottony fabric perfect for warm summer/spring days. It also has a crinoline skirt that makes it the perfect fit-flare style.

Pattern was great, tulle was a nice touch. Dress very small through torso area. I am short waisted and the boning cut into my hips. But if I was average height and slimmer it would have been a 5 star dress!!!

Perfect for an outdoor, mountain top wedding.

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I got a ton of compliments on my dress. The boning was coming out of the bottom and ended up poking me randomly throughout the night. The boning on the size 8 was too painful under the arm to wear. I used double sided tape to secure the boobs into the dress and had no trouble dancing all night. The dress fit wonderfully and I would love to wear it again. The skirt would fly up if not held down during a big gust of wind. I'm also long legged, long armed, and long torso-ed. I didn't have to worry about flashing too much skin as the dress was long enough.

Too small :(

Size worn: NONE
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this for a very casual barn wedding reception, but rented too late where I wasn't able to pick a backup size. I've never had a problem fitting into any 0 I have rented so I went for it anyway. Of course this is the time where it wouldn't work out. I was excited to try it on when it arrived, I had just gotten back from lunch... Bad idea. Couldn't even get it zipped over my torso. I tried again right before I returned it, just to see. Well, I got it zipped this time, but I couldn't breathe. For a brief moment I considered wearing it but it wouldn't be worth being uncomfortable the whole night! Rent the Runway was extremely customer oriented in fixing the problem. My replacement dress just arrived, with more than enough time before my event! Overall the fit was small, but it is a really cute dress for a petite woman. I am short (5'1") and the length was short but appropriate for a wedding. The skirt is full and would have been fun to dance in!

Great Wedding Brunch Dress!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress was very fun and light for a summer wedding brunch. It did have a bit too much cleavage, so I wouldn't suggest for anyone with a larger bra size than mine. I can't imagine how I could have worn a bra with this, but luckily the boning worked just fine!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small

It runs a bit tight around the bust so take that into consideration, the nice thing about it being so tight is that you don't need a strapless bra. Easy to dance in, and it didn't need many accessories since the pattern was really fun.

The boning was poking out of the dress at the hips which made it very uncomfortable, but at least it looked great! The amount of tulle on the skirt fluffs it out the perfect amount.

I received a ton of compliments on this dress!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This was my first experience with RTR and I was soooo excited to receive my package in the mail a couple of days before the wedding I was attending. However, upon opening the box, I realized that the dress looked, well, rented. You could tell that it had been worn before, and a lot. There were tears in the tulle (which was underneath, so it's not like anyone saw it) and the hem had started to fray. I found myself picking at stray threads all night. I ordered both a size 4 and size 6, and ended up going with the 6 because of how tight the bust was on the 4 -- I felt like I couldn't breathe! Overall a good first experience, but I honestly don't know if I'll use this service again. I was expecting to rent a dress that looked and felt new, not one that had been worn a hundred times before.

Overall fit was true to size however the boning is very tight thru the ribs so taking a deep breath was difficult. On a couple occasions I had to sneak away to unzip just to get some relief. I loved the dress, it was PERFECT a late afternoon outdoor southern wedding. Received endless compliments.

Received many compliments all night! It fit well but definitely works for a smaller bust (I'm a 36A/B). The boning did begin to dig in to my rib cage at the end of the night, but could have just been wear-and-tear on the dress.

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size

The dress fits true to size. The cut is low in the front, but there is boning inside the dress for support; no bra needed underneath. It's a lightweight cotton-feel material, and the skirt flows when you dance with one layer of tulle underneath to add great flounce! The waist does not run high--it fits well on your small waist and is very flattering. Loved it!

Beautiful color and fun skirt!

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was perfect for a summer wedding. The color really popped and the skirt was fun and flattering. I am a petite girl and the dress was very tight in the rib cage because of the wiring in the upper part of the dress. I had to be conscious of pulling up the dress a lot, but no more than a normal strapless dress. I loved this dress and wish I could own it but my one real issue was the tulle material under the skirt because it hurt to sit on for a while. I accessorized with nude wedges, a simple gold necklace and a gold clutch. Have fun with this dress!

Only problem was the seam at the top along the boobs, would buckle from time to time and wouldn't lay flat. I also thought the dress was a little short for me. But I wore it to a spring horse race and it was the perfect dress for the occasion. The fabric is definitely more casual then fancy.

Young, fun dress for Graduation

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented this dress for my graduation from graduate school and received many compliments. I absolutely loved the color, style, and it was exactly what I was looking for to wear in May.it was extremely comfortable as well! The ONLY downside was the fit in my bust area. I am a 36D and the dress was extremely snug. It didn't help that there was a slight dip in the cleavage as well. The picture doesn't do it justice, but I was popping out of the dress..LOL. I was even skeptical about wearing it because of the low neckline.

SMALL fit. I'm usually a 2 and sometimes a 0 so I'm glad I ordered the 2 and the 4 since I ended up needing the larger size. Cheapish material, but it photographed really well.

This dress was a hit! I would definitely recommend it for a summer wedding.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is fun and flirty and great for dancing with the tule underneath (although that also makes it a bit scratchy). It's incredibly flattering and for the first time ever I did not find myself tugging at my strapless dress to keep the top from sliding down. I fit perfectly into the 4, but the boning felt more tight that what I'm used to so definitely opt for the bigger size if both fit. Would especially recommend this dress for short girls--it was short and cute without being inappropriate for a wedding.

Perfect for outdoor, summer, southern wedding

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Lots of people said the fit was small, so I intended to order the size 6 and 8 (I usually wear a 6, but am pear-shaped and a 4 is generally a better fit on top). They had run out of the 8, so I got the 6 and 4 instead - it worked out because I ended up wearing the 4. If you're bigger in the chest (I'm barely a B cup) then a bigger size might be better for you, because while the 6 was more comfortable in my ribs, it gaped at my chest. I stuck with the 4 to minimize the gaping up top, and it worked out great! I added some RtR accessories, and all was well. I got a ton of compliments, and it was perfect for my friends' outdoor summer southern wedding.

I wore this dress to a summer back yard wedding. It was perfect for the event. Paired it with tan wedges and red clutch. I did have to iron the material underneath the skirt to de-wrinkle it a bit. The top was a little loose but, didn't fall at all. I used a sticky bra I got at target. Just be careful if its windy, I'm glad I had boy shorts on. Overall, great dress.

The dress was a little big at the top and I did have to keep pulling it up, but to go down a size it was too fitted at the bottom. This dress is great for weddings!

This dress was a ton of fun to wear to a summer wedding. The material is light so I wouldn't recommend it for cooler weather. I usually wear a 2 or 4 in dresses and wore the 4, the 2 was way too tight up top so I'd recommend sizing up for your back up. Otherwise the dress stays put so you don't need to adjust it throughout the night. It's a blast to dance in and received a lot of compliments!

Perfect dress for a summer wedding!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress to a summer wedding in July. I expect that the dress was gong to be a bit more fancy, but it honestly worked out great. I did have a few things I didn't like about the dress though. The boning was poking me when I would sit down and even had a but of it stick out through the fabric. It was a little loose in the very top, where I assumes others had the same problem I did of the dress slipping down and then having to pull it up. You could tell the dress had been worn because of these two things. I ordered a size 2 and 4. The 2 was slightly too small, the 4 was perfect because I was able to wear a strapless bra with it. I loves the color and the sweetheart neckline. I paired it with nude pumps and they worked perfect. Overall the dress is great and I would certainly recommend it. I had a great first experience with RTR and will be renting again.

Miami Wedding

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I wanted a fun bright cocktail type dress for a wedding we were attending in Miami. This was definitely a show stopper. However, I was not 100% comfortable in it-so ended up putting a cardigan over the dress for much of the wedding. My boobs were very much out there, this would have been better for a smaller chested girl of which I am currently not.

I had a ton of compliments on this dress!!!

Size worn: 4
Rented for: Wedding
This dress runs really small, I think it has something to do with the corset waist. I received my size 2 and 4 and neither one fit so I actually had to have a size 6 sent to me. The 6 fit great in the stomach but the bust area was a little big, so I had to tape it to keep it from falling down. Overall I enjoyed wearing the dress but there were a few flaws with it.
