LOVED, got tons of complements. I'm a 4 up top and a 6 through the hips, but the 4 fit the bust better and was surprisingly forgiving through the hips. I will say that the under-layer slip is super-short, but the top cascading layer adds a bit of length.

I ordered a size 0 (my normal size). Unfortunately, I cannot wear this dress as it is TOO SHORT. I would not be able to walk up/down stairs or sit at a bar/table comfortably, I would risk "pulling a Britney", with undies on of course! It's a beautifully designed dress and the color is really vibrant!

The color is fantastic and touches such as the shoulder cuffs are really unique. The dress is light and easy to wear all evening but it is revealing through the bust and pretty short. There are loops for a bra strap and a plunging bra will not show if you use double sided tape. If you're not busty, I would recommend going with your smaller size as I thought the top was too big on a 6 and the 4 would have been perfect. You will get a TON of compliments in this dress!

First off, I was highly impressed with the delivery process. I ordered to have this delivered to my workplace. Imagine my pleasant surprise when a courier arrives to my office with the beautifully packaged dress (I lived in Manhattan so maybe that is why the dress was couriered). The fit was spot-on perfect. I applied the standard measurements that went with this dress and the measurements were accurate. I ordered a size 2 and 4. The 2 was beyond perfect. I have an athletic narrow frame so was very pleased to see that this dress gave me the added curves that I wanted. I loved, loved, loved the color of this dress. The fabric is such a lucsious, delicate and breathable material. As soon as you see this dress in person, you can tell this is grade A quality. I was at a party with dozens of friends and felt I was the star in this dress. The only thing I did not love about the dress is the sleeves and that is a matter of personal preference. Overall the length was appropriate (I may have felt different if I had to sit in this dress though). Overall I was very pleased with my first experience with Rent the Runway. They were timely, the dresses with spotless, and you could not tell they had been worn in the past. I plan on Rent the Runway more in the future.

Great dress! I got tons of compliments! One thing is that the cups are a bit small. I am a size 2 but a 34D and I was 'popping out' a bit.

Loved it!! I wore it to Junior year prom. It's a tad short, but I got a ton of compliments! One girl even came up to me and knew the exact designer. It's flattering in pictures. In the picture it looks a blueish purple, but it is literally a royal blue. The material was not quite what I expected, but it laid nicely! Overall a great dress!! :)

Beautiful dress!! Though I ended up wearing my back up instead, because this one showed too much cleavage. The fabric is delicate and feminine, as is the dress overall. I didn't like the way the sleeves looked after all and used fashion tape to tape them over the straps, which looked beautiful. Boyfriend was bummed I didn't go with this one, he said it was very sexy.

I love this dress!!! Honestly, I couldn't believe I could fit it. Most designer dresses run small but I worked really hard to lose weight and I did. My pants size are an 8 and I fit the size 8 dress. That's never happened, I usually always have to go up a higher size because I'm busty but it worked out. The dress is really short and you have to plan out what kind of chest support you're going to use. I went with a "U" bra or silicon inserts would have worked too. I rented this dress for a photo shoot and I know my photos will have a burst of color with this cobolt blue dress. I highly recommend it. Everyone I was with complimented me in it and the color.

Color is beautiful and style is very flattering. Unfortunately, the inner liner of the dress was wayyy too short for me - as soon as I took a step you could see my butt lol - so I couldn't wear it.

flying into NYC from a tiny town in Kentucky knowing that my fashion would be right on par with all of the big-city girls...
If you are slender and on the shorter side, this dress is a dream. Definitely the top pick of the 6 dresses I've rented from RTR!!! The underslip is quite short as previous reviewers have mentioned, but for me it was only a minor issue when I was seated. The chest is plunging- I would not recommend this dress for those over a B-cup, as bust coverage is rather scant. VERY appropriate for the gala Manhattan wedding I wore it to!!! If you are self conscious about your hips this may not be the dress for you, as the drapes do add some volume, but I thought it looked lovely. What a gorgeous dress, I highly recommend it for petites.

Rent the Runway made my night! I got so many compliments!
rented the 0 and it was perfect, except couldve been just a tiny bit tighter in the waist. This dress looks gorgeous on a slim figure! SO flattering. I got tons of compliments. Everyone commented on how pretty I was and how they had never seen a dress like it. Perfect!

This could possibly be my favorite dress on RTR - I have worn it twice now (to a bday party and on a date with my fiancee). I wish i had a better picture to share, this doesn't do it justice!
I LOVE this dress! Smallish bust needed to make it work (super flattering on A cup) and will be REALLY short if you're 5'7 or taller!

I got so many amazing compliments, and best of all, NO ONE HAD MY DRESS! I felt amazing all night long :). By far, the best I have ever looked.
This dress is by far the best thing I have ever worn. I was nervous about the fit after reading reviews since I have a good size chest and am curvier than some who had ordered it. But to my surprise, this covered all my insecure areas and highlighted the best parts of me. I only wish I had figured out a bra situation beforehand. You can for sure wear your own bra but I recommend sticky boobs so you wont have to worry about it showing. I styled this look with silver jewelry, and a bold purple peep toe heel.

Great Party Dress!
I wore this to a wedding and received so many compliments, it is a little bit unique and a great color. I kind of ignored the other reviews saying how short the dress is, I am short so dresses that are short on others aren't usually all that short on me, but this dress was short!! It's not so bad when you are standing, but when you sit it could get dangerous for sure. I wore it with black tights, I'm glad I had tights or else I would have felt too naked for a wedding. If I had worn it to something other than a wedding, going out or to a cocktail party, I wouldn't have been as concerned w/it being as short as it was. Overall really comfy/easy to wear and I would def recommend it. I am usually a 2 or 4, I think more often a size 4, I ordered it in both sizes and wore the 2. Also I wore it w/a regular bra which was nice! I didn't need to use a strapless one.

I caught everyone's attention the second I walked into ANY room.
This was my first experience with RTR, and I think I'm hooked. The dress was a show-stopper - I got more compliments than I could count. The only issue was that it was a bit too small and I wish I got the second size up. Word to the wise, always take advantage of ordering that free second size. All in all, everyone loved it, I loved it. I'll DEFINITELY back for more! Check out my blog entry here: http://wearhausonline.tumblr.com/post/21239299268/rented-the-runway-for-my-birthday-rent-the

I am about a DD. I have a very small frame though. Will this dress be to showy in the cleavage area for a wedding?

Perfect Prom Dress!
I loved this dress so much! The one downside is that there really isn't any sort of bra you can wear with it. I used the adhesive pads but jiggling was a little bit of an issue... also I found that the shoulder straps were a little long and tended to slip and the underslip rode up a bit, but despite these things I would buy this dress in a second if I had that kind of money lying around!

Numerous people said I looked stunning!
This dress is stunning. I wore it to an evening wedding with gold accessories and gold shoes. I am typically a size 6 or 8 in dresses with a decent size bust. I was able to wear a bra with this dress, but used a lot of safety pins to make sure the bra straps didn't show, and a LOT of fashion tape to tone down the amount of cleavage. It is pretty short, and I didn't feel all that comfortable "getting down" on the dance floor b/c of this. It's a great dress, but I think it might be best for a smaller build with small chest. Maybe better for a girl's night out rather than a formal event? Overall, beautiful dress though.

Too short
This dress is made well however it is very very short. The center of the skirt is shorter than pictured. The skirt was puffy and made me look wider than I am. I ended up sending this dress back.

My most unforgettable RTR moment was when months later my friends and family saw the dress in a movie.
This dress was amazing! i received so many compliments. I would say the dress was true to size although if you have a larger bust do not rent this dress. I am an average B and at times felt I was spilling out, other than that I would highly recommend!

LOVED the dress. True to size. I am kind of in between a 2 and a 4 sometimes, but the 2 worked perfectly. I didn't wear a bra and it was fine! Wore it to a sorority formal. Amazing color (the color in the picture is true in person) and got tons of complements.

I actually had some trouble receiving my package. UPS dropped it off at another building in my apartment complex. I called RTR and they overnighed me another dress. I had it the next day by the time I was home from work. My first package was found, but really appreciated them sending a second, on them!
Absolutely loved this dress. It's a bit shorter than what it appears in the photo. Even though it's low cut, I was able to wear my deep-v strapless bra with it. I wore a size 4 and it fit like a glove. It was comfortable, and I got lots of compliments. Would definitely recommend renting, it's a 10!

This dress made me feel like a princess. I loved it. I got tons of compliments throughout the evening. I especially love the sleeves, which really add to the effect. It was a bit short when I sat down, but the material covers you in the most important areas.

I'm the one on the left wearing the size 4, while my friend is on the right in the size 6. Rented for my 22nd birthday, she got to wear it the following night and have a chance to appreciate men falling all over themselves. This dress received nonstop compliments, it was amazing.

It was a glamorous dress!
The way this dress drapes over your body is just amazing. The low cut worked perfectly for me because it brought out my small chest, the draping at the shoulders hides arm fat haha, it fits nicely at the waist and the draping at the hips creates a feminine figure. The material seemed kind of thin, but necessary for the soft look. And no, I didn't think it was too short.

GREAT COLOR, GREAT FIT, LOVE THIS DRESS, NEW YEARS DRESS
I LOVED this dress. It fit great, the color looked amazing in photos and i received lots of compliments on it. i ended up tucking in the sleeves a bit so they didnt hang down and i liked that look better than the hanging sleeves. I had ordered a 2 and a 4 just in case and RTR ended up selling my size 4 for the same dates. RTR gave me the choice of any other dress any price on the site! Im just so glad the 2 fit perfectly! Since i definitely have a butt i was worried the 2 might be too tight around my butt and thighs but it really did end up fitting just right. LOVE RTR. Thank you.

I received SO many compliments in this dress, and I felt like a rockstar.
This dress was much shorter than I expected, as I am only 5 ft tall. It fit like a glove except for the shoulder straps. I have a pretty short torso so the straps kept sliding down and the chest support wasn't so great, but other than that it was very comfortable and flattering.

The dress fits very comfortably. Its light weight, but looks like a brillant saffire!
I was looking for a special dress for my bday. I felt like a celebrity and unique at the same time! I've very small, and was amazed at how it fit like a glove to my body! The dress wasnt to long or short. It was very classy and sexy at the same time.

Gorgeous color and cut! Very romantic!
I love love LOVED this dress and has an overall great experience from RTR. As a shorter woman with a larger chest, it is always a little difficult to hit the right balance of classy and sexy, but this dress was on the money. Fit was true to size, and I feel like the way the chiffon draped would be beautiful for several different body types. The only cons, and they were minor, was that the straps were a little long for me and the slip was a little on the sorter side of life. Also, I had to sew the hook on at the zipper because it was very loose when I received it. An easy fix to be sure, but something that I would have appreciated RTR fixing before sending the dress to me. I can't wait to order from RTR again and I have my eyes out on eBay to buy this one!

the perfect birthday dress!
I ordered this dress in a 4 and a 6 for my 25th birthday and both fit me, but the 4 ended up fitting me better. I have green eyes, so the color of the dress made them pop! The neckline is very low, so you have to go braless or wear a low cut strapless.

Absolutely love and suggest this dress. Beautiful color and shapes, got so many compliments!
I am 6 feet tall so it's not a surprise when dresses run short on me so I went up a size just for length. In the actual dress, there was not too big of a difference between the two sizes which was nice. Everything else fit great and the dress was very complimenting. I suggest it to all!
