BEST DRESS EVER!!!
I wish I could buy this dress! It was so comfortable and flowy. I wore it for a wedding and received countless compliments. The Medium fit me and I usually wear a 6/8 in dresses. I felt so amazing and beautiful in this dress! The best part is that I had a back up dress for free. I LOVE Rent The Runway :) :)

Fantastic dress! I got so many compliments. First experience with RTW = awesome!
It was so easy...dress arrived as expected, ready to wear, in a nice garment bag. I ended up wearing the second size I ordered (M) because the dress runs large. I got so many compliments and I really felt confident! Emails kept me updated on my order and how to handle the return. Postage Paid Envelope...return couldn't have been easier! This was my first experience with Rent The Runway and I am totally impressed...I highly recommend it! And I have been spreading the word :-)

Fantastic, Energizing, and Easy
Love this dress! Super flattering, comfortable, with great movement. Wonderful colors. The dress is lined, so doesn't need a slip. A strapless bra is helpful for support. I wore the large (the medium was not available, so I cannot compare the different sizes). I paired it with a light brown cardigan for the church service and part of the evening, so I tied the belt in the front, to the side. I usually accessorize with abandon, but this dress did not need any additional sparkle. Navy round-toe stilettoes finished the look with elegance and simplicity. The dress was terrific for dancing. I received many compliments.

Great design, perfect for the wedding rehearsal dinner
The size small fit tightly - and the fabric does not "give" so a Medium might have also worked for me. I received compliments - someone called it a "work of art". I jumped off a 3 hour plane ride with two cranky kids, no time for a shower, but slipped this dress on and felt "done up". Wore gold earrings and tan heels. The dress is modest, but not boring!

Super comfortable. Had a ton of compliments.
Fit true to size on bottom, perhaps a little roomier up top. The pink belt and shoulder straps pack a punch. I paired with nude heels and wore a strapless bra.

Pop of color
Dress fits great, can be cinched with the sash. I wore for family Thanksgiving. The top is slightly bigger than I'd desire, prefer a little tighter around the armholes. Wore a strapless bra. The color is actually navy, not black, but I wore black shoes and black jewelry. No complaints, BCBG are always solid dresses. (Excuse my husband's Movember mustache.) I am also two months post-partum so the shape is great for hiding less than perfect lower abdominals.

Love the dress but missing sash!
I had read the reviews that the dress can sometimes come without the sash as seen in the photo but was so eager to try it out anyway as I have had my eye on this dress for awhile. The dress is beautiful, very slimming with the pattern and material but unfortunately the sash makes this dress and it did not arrive. I called RTR and they were very helpful explaining that I could go out and buy a belt and expense it if I liked. It was unfortunately the day before Thanksgiving and I doubted I would find something in time so I returned it and got a full refund.

I got several comments on how cool this dress was. Introduced a couple of friends to RTR!
I wore the size Large, because that was the first one I tried on and it felt slightly tight in the hips, so I didn't try the Medium. Later, after the party, I finally tried on the Medium, and it fit better than the Large--I should have worn it instead!!! The only real difference was, the top fit better, less billowy, on the Medium than the Large. The skirt felt the same on both sizes. Arg, lesson learned: try on both dresses, regardless of how you think the other size will fit. I've got a fairly large chest, and the Medium fit perfectly. I wore a long-line strapless bra, but no other special undergarments. The comments about the color are right on: navy and beige, with fuchsia accents. Not black and red. When I got the dresses, the skirt was not ironed pleated, as in the model picture, but was loose. Not wrinked, but not pleated either. The pleats on the bodice were also loosely, rather than crisply, ironed. Think it would be better if it were more crisply pressed.

The Hot Pink is unexpected and Perfection on this Dress!
I actually played stylist for my mom and surprised her with this dress for a Local Fashion week. It was the perfect length for her and she looked stunning! She still raves about this dress! I love the pop of pink and the unique print. Another great one RTR

Wish I could have worn it :(
Beautiful dress but I never got to wear it, didn't have the sash in the bag. Arrived in town 2 hours before the party and had to find a back up and ship the dress away the next morning. My next dress arrives in a few days for New Years Eve, hopefully my second experience is better than the first.

Hi Caroline! I'm so sorry to hear that the dress did not arrive with the belt. I can assure you this is not a typical occurence and we're happy to refund you for the style if you weren't able to wear it!

It was a great dress with a great fit. Really fun and flirty and just a blast to wear!
This dress was so beautiful and I got so many compliments on it. I was a little disappointed when I received it because the sash was not with the dress, but I matched it with a wide navy belt and I received so many compliments throughout the night!

Cute dress comfortable and fits well. I ordered the small and xs and the small fits fine. The only bit that is off is the color of the "red". It is more of a dark hot pink or fuchsia. I was planning to wear with red shoes....thank goodness I brought a pair of navy peep toe sling backs which matches much better.

I rented this dress for a wedding and it was amazing. I got so many compliments. I usually wear a small but I know that BCBG often runs large, so I got the XS and it fit perfectly. Definitely needs spanx or a slip underneath though, as it is a bit see through.

AMAZING!! Saw this at BCBG and loved that runway has current items! It was loose and VERY comfortable, order a normal and down a size even though it isn't suppose to be a form fitting dress. Fell to my knees, there is a small slit where the longer panel hangs. It is navy and hot pink. LOVED this dress!!

I was concerned about the length due to my height but the XS was a perfect fit for me. Lots of compliments about looking fashion forward! The unconventional hemline was a nice change of pace from my usual short cocktail dresses. However, I could never quite decide if the darker color block was black or navy. I just wore nude heels and didn't worry any further about it!

Great dress to stand out in
I rented this along with another dress for a wedding weekend (a black one for my bridesmaid dress and this one for the rehearsal dinner). This dress was just perfect. Very comfortable, and I got a lot of compliments. Be sure to wear a strapless bra and nude undergarments. The fabric is sheer, but not see-through.

Great dress!
This dress was so comfortable and easy to wear. It runs true to size and allows room for a fuller bust and wide hips. The pink belt is great for comfortably accentuating the waistline with a fun pop of color. Loved this dress!

Lovely dress, awkward fit
I loved the edgy style of this dress, which I paired with over-the-knee suede boots for a New Year's Eve party. Taller girls beware: the torso is cut for a much shorter person, so even if the bottom half is the perfect size, you might feel constrained at the arms, and the fit can look a bit awkward.

My boyfriend and I have very different taste (I'm flashier than him), but he loved this dress as much as I did.
I rented this dress in both the XS and the S for a semi-formal New Year's party we hosted. The XS was just a big too snug across the hips/thighs on my pear shaped frame, but the S fit perfectly. If you don't like strapless bras (mine always fall down), I was able to finagle the clear straps on mine so that they were invisible under the pink part of the neckline. Against the nude and navy parts of the dress, the hot magenta really popped! Great dress and I highly recommend it.

The BF said it was the best dress I had ever rented for myself - the magenta really popped on stage.
Wore this for a pageant judging event; the perfect blend of "wow" factor as the dress's off-center and unique prints stand out (along with the magenta on the neck halter and belt), yet it is "not overly formal". Paired this with my burnish gold Manolo Blahnik sandals (can be seen in picture) and magenta clutch and had so much fun in the outfit. Highly Recommend this dress for events where you need to be formal/noticed but not overdone.

Pretty...but
I wore this to NYFW one day to the shows. This dress is better suited to someone who has a bit of thighs and tush to hide. I have straight hips and I thought the pleats added about 8lbs that I dont have! The fabric sash is very high waisted and does not really lay flat.

Great dress!!
First time renting a dress- so much fun and so easy! I got this dress for a day time family party and it was perfect-wore simply gold hoops, bangles, and nude patent pumps. Would be great for night too! I normally wear an 8, sometimes 6 in dresses- but just had my third child and am still nursing-still the M fit with room to spare and fit very comfortably. I would say for most people order your normal size and one down-esp if you are petite or have a small chest. I wore it the next day too for another party and even with my two kids and a baby all over me for both events-the dress looked as great at the end of the second day as when I took it out of the bag! really great dress!

Amazing Dress!!
I rented this dress for a spring wedding. I don't know that I have ever gotten so many compliments on a dress- it was ridiculous!! I ordered both a small and medium, as I am a small on top and medium on bottom. I ended up wearing the small- I thought it fit better on top, and the bottom was more forgiving, so I was able to pull it off. I wore nude shoes and had a nude clutch.

The manager of the restaurant we went to asked me where I got this dress because "you don't see a dress like this just anywhere". Also, I got engaged in it, so that must count for something too! :)
I was concerned about the length since I am so short, but it worked great with heels. Loved it and will probably rent again!

I had been looking forward to wear this dress since I first saw it, without rent the runway that wouldn't have been possible, thanks!
This dress is amazing. It accentuated my hour glass shape and it's so unusual I looked super stylish. Got so many compliments all night and I really didn't want to take it off.

Wow - you're looking great!
Only size S was available so I did not have a back-up size, but I had tried on the same dress in stores this summer (in a different color), so knew how it would fit. Since this was my first RTR experience, I also had my own BACK-UP dress. Dress was sent to my hotel complete with emails informing me of delivery, but imagine my disappointment when I arrived @ my hotel on 8pm Friday night (for a 1pm Saturday wedding) to find the pink belt was missing! Otherwise, it fit beautifully, and is incredibly flattering. I called the number listed but got voice since it was outside hours. I also sent an email and was hoping a belt could be sent out in time, but alas, there was no response until the following Monday (though I did not call back the next morning as I was in the shops trying to find a matching belt). I got a nude belt which looked OK but not as great as the original pink one would have looked. Got many compliments about the dress and felt very comfortable in it. Colors are fuscia, navy and beige. I matched with nude patent pumps. I did not receive a phone call back about the belt issue, but instead got a complete refund and 25% of my next order (communicated via email), so I guess I am (somewhat) satisfied, though have concerns about items being sent out without vital accessories such as belts. I think some oversight / investigation into which dry cleaning company is being used to clean / repair and ship dresses is warranted, as I also found a repair on the neckline that was done in color mis-matched thread (barely noticeable but still this should have been repaired properly especially for such an expensive dress). Despite the belt problem, I was satisfied and will try RTR again……though a back-up is ALWAYS prudent!

Wore this for my outdoor graduation that was 90 degrees! This dress was perfect for the weather
Fit was good, a little loss up top for my pear shape. Didn't come with belt which I was aware of from the other reviews but it is definitely necessary. I didn't have a red belt so I used a thick red ribbon I had in the house and it worked perfectly.

great dress for any age
I wore last week for my college commencement ceremony. I've ordered two sizes (XS and M), because I was not sure about my size. it fits true to size. However, in both dresses there were no belts included, So beware! Also there were small oily spots on chiffon upfront. I had to stay in graduation gown anyways so it did not bother me, but I could not wear it for my graduation party at the restaurant because of the spots, so I had to change. The dress itself is beautiful, flowy, but make sure you let the RTR know in advance about the missing belt.
