These colors are perfect for a fall occasion--I wore this dress to work followed by a dinner party.
The dress highlighted my small waist, which was nice, but it definitely accentuates one's hips, so only rent it if you're comfortable with that look.

Not a great fitting dress.
I got this dress to wear for Thanksgiving dinner and it did not work out. The dress had a ton of extra fabric in the back so that it bulged in the back and on the sides. If you're an A cup or small B and have a small torso, I would not recommend this dress as the fit will be too large-even with the XS. The color of the dress is a lot darker than in the picture but the pattern in still pretty. Unfortunately this dress did not work for me.

It was a solid dress but not my favorite.
The dress was very comfortable to wear, but I felt as though the center band kept riding up. It was also slightly uncomfortable in the boob area. It was great for the purpose but not my favorite from rent the runway.

I got this for an office holiday party. It was nice and looked good with gold jewelry.
It runs big and long. I am a pear, size 8 on top and 10 on the bottom.. I ordered a L and a M the M fit the best, but was loose. The dress is very long. I'm 5'7 1/2" and in heels it was below my knees.

Too big, not enough definition
I think of a class president as pulled together, confident, organized, and in charge, so I hoped this dress might communicate some of those qualities. It may have been an issue of sizing - this was a backup selection, and only the large was available for my event date. It was loose and blousy on top and voluminous around the hips and bottom. With all that fabric above and below, the waist gets lost. The hem falls below the knee, which is a great length for a sheath or a structured cocktail dress, but with this shape it was about four inches too long. I felt more pulled out of shape than pulled together, and the dress did not project the blend of competence and verve I had hoped for, so I did not wear it.

Color Blocking, with a wide mid section
I am very much Pear shaped, but the contrast with the dark mid section made my curves disappear. There is plenty of room up top and down below if you need room there, but not too big that you would feel like you are swimming in it.

A fun, flirty and flattering pick!
I wore this for Christmas Eve church service and dinner with the family. I got a lot of compliments and thought it was very comfortable. I did order the medium/large and wish I had ordered medium/small instead it does run big.

I wore this for a work fundraiser and I compliments on it throughout the night!
I ordered both the Medium and Large. Both were large on top. I think it is supposed to be a blouson style top but the Large just made me look large. The lining underneath the dress tended to ride up with the Medium but the overall look was better with the Medium so I went with that.

Too long, Frumpy
I thought the dress would be knee length, but it hit around mid calf, which is a bad length for me. I would have ranked it a one, but I did get a couple compliments, and it is otherwise a cute dress, but unlee you are super tall, I would skip this item.

A little frumpy. Would have been better in a smaller size.
I am a tall girl that normally wears a 10. This dress was way to big for me even thought it said Large was 10-12. I'm 5'10 and it still hit below the knee which was not flattering. I'm sure if I had the right size it would look better.

It was okay.
The color scheme is great and the fabric is wonderful. But this dress is just too long and too wide for a shorter, petite girl. The dress went a few inches below my knees. It also bunched in an unflattering way on the top. I would not recommend this dress for a special occasion just because it really may not look that great on.

This wasn't the right silhouette for my body.
The dress was beautiful and very well made but it didn't fit my body type at all. The bodice was snug across my full bust and the pleats did not look good. Also the skirt was at least 3 inches below the knee which made me look short.

This dress was so comfortable! It made me feel super confident and flirty!
I really enjoyed this dress mostly because it was so comfortable. I tried on the medium when I first opened up my order, and it was huge. I then pulled on the small, and it fit a little better, but I maybe could have done with the extra small? Maybe? Regardless, the band around the waist was perfect to accentuate your smallest part of your waist, and I loved that it was not too revealing.

Perfect for the first communion party!
This was my back up dress, and was perfect for the occasion. Received several compliments from both friends and family, and I loved the color! If you're larger chested, know that it will bunch in the cleavage area...makes it slightly matronly...the attached inner slip tends to attract more static, so I wore another slip to keep it from riding up. Over all, not too bad. I wore a dark navy sweater over it, because it was a chilly day. Don't have picts from the photographer to post.

I Didn't End Up Wearing It - Too Large
The overall fit of this dress runs big. I rented the medium. The waist part hits at a weird part of the body, so the top of the dress was extra blousey. The dress is long, but if you're tall like I am, then it won't be an issue. Because of the weird fit, I ended up not wearing the dress, and wore something I already owned

I ended up not wearing this dress. It bags out in front up top like a balloon--not a good look. Perhaps it would not do this in a smaller size.

Top fit terribly
While this dress is very cute, I couldn't wear either size to my friend's wedding shower. While the bottom was fine, I have a larger chest and even the small was incredibly loose-fitting and baggy on the top. It sagged and popped out in very odd places making the entire dress look frumpy.

Customer service is superb. Both dresses arrived packaged beautifully.
This dress is extremely comfortable and hangs beautifully. I can understand some of the previous reviews which pointed out that the dress can bunch up at the top. I think that is minimized by getting the correct fit. I wore an XS and had no problems with bunching. I received many compliments on the dress which I wore for a day time graduation ceremony. Overall, it was a very classy, pretty dress that I enjoyed wearing.

Demure, stylish dress
This ran large and was a bit too long for my height. I think it would look better on a taller, less petite woman than I. Well made, comfortable and stylish though... no complaints there.

I had to return it after I just received it. I am 5'2 and the XS was still too big for me.
The dress is well made but not made for my body. Oh well. You win some you loose some.

Great dress, a little big in the top
I wore this dress for graduation from my MBA program. It was great because it's made of a lightweight fabric that was breathable .... perfect for my event because it was incredibly hot and humid that day. My only complaint is that the top was a little big. I know it's supposed to be a bit poofy on purpose, but I felt like I didn't fill it out enough. Other than that, it was great!

Runs large
I am only 5' 4'' tall and the dress did not work for me. My torso is a little short, while my legs aren't so short - so the top of the dress bunched a lot (even the Small). And the Small was also quite long on me. The extra small may have worked better.

Could not wear - beautiful colors, but very peculiar fit
This dress runs very large, especially in the top. I typically wear a Medium or a Large, so I ordered both. I wear a full 36D bra. And yet the top of the Medium was still large and looked frumpy. I also noticed that on my shape (hourglass), the thinner stripe on the skirt ran straight across the widest portion of my hips, making them look fuller than my natural figure. I obviously could not wear this dress for the event which I rented it for, but I wish it would've worked out for me because the jewel-tone colors are simply gorgeous.

Unfortunately, this dress didn't meet my expectations.
I probably should have ordered a small, but I imagine this dress would still have been floating. It came down to my mid-shins (I'm 5'-9") and I looked like a school marm. I didn't wear it.

Too big to wear. Like a weird pleated tent cinched at the waist.
I rented this for a work event to wear with a blazer. The over fit was so large; I was a bit shocked because normally this brand runs small. I'm usually a medium to large, size 8-10. The pleats laid so strange over my chest and bulged around the side. It looked like my chest spread to my sides. I didn't end up wearing it sadly. The colors and combo are very pretty, but I just wish the fit was better.

Nice conservative dress but not for petites
After reading the reviews I got the S as my back up size & glad I did. I was expecting it to be long on me but the top was ridiculously huge! I tried the blouson effect but that looked worse, so I just pulled it down to my waist and the dress was tea length on me. Not too bad, but it made me look very matronly for Morhers Day.

Doesn't this dress look fantastic on the RTR model? I was sure it would look great on me, but it wasn't becoming at all. Too large. Made me look frumpy. If you're long and willowy, go for it.

Fun color-blocking dress
I wore this to a post-wedding brunch and it was perfect for a nice-ish picnic. I could move around in it and lounge easily on a blanket -- and it looked great, too. I was glad to have the XS, which I never normally wear except in this case after reading the other reviews. Otherwise I think it would've been too big and blousy.

Should have listened to all the reviews here - this dress runs large, & is NOT made for a full bust.
The dress is NOT suited for anyone who has a full bust AND short torso. Unless you look like the lean and thin model shown wearing this, this will not suit you well.

Elegant in my cap and gown
I rented this dress for my graduation. I wanted to wear something comfortable and appropriate for being around family and faculty. It was really comfortable to wear during the hour ceremony, and the colors are beautiful. I didn't give the dress the full 5 stars because the waistline has to be adjusted/pulled down often. Keep that in mind if you are going to be dancing or taking lots of photos. Overall, it was an easy and elegant dress to wear. I miss it!

I wore this dress to my sister's bridal shower, and received a ton of compliments!
The cut and pleats are very ladylike, and the color combination is unique and beautiful. I felt that the top part of the dress was a little large, but I didn't try a small to see if that would have fit better. Despite it running a little large, I will definitely rent this dress again!
