It is fun to wear something no one has seen me wearing before.
I wore this dress to my daughter's bridal shower. I enjoyed wearing it.

Did the material give at all
NoraJune 13, 2014
no, this fabric is NOT a stretch knit, so there is no give.

Pretty dress!
I ordered this dress for my main dress but ended up wearing my backup dress as I liked it better. This dress looked and fit nice however it was tight in the hip area. If you are between sizes order a size up.

Tried something different
I rented this dress for a bridal shower and a christening. I rented a 2 and a 4. The 2 was snug in the chest but I could still zip it. The 4 fit great in the chest but was big in the hip. I felt it did not fit me right and I didn't end up wearing it. Also, the style was not for me but the quality of the dress was beautiful.

Having a backup dress was perfect because my first choice did not fit.
I wore this dress for a wedding reception and got tons of compliments. I normally wear a 6 and it fit perfectly. The belt adds a great touch and it was very flattering to my figure. It was easy to sit, move and dance in. I would definitely recommend it.

My over-critical BFF who hated the dress when I showed it to him online was stunned. He said it fit like it was made for me.
I ordered an 8 and a 6 - they both fit. They seemed to fit me the same in my hips, but the 8 was a bit blousey on top. The 6 was definitely more fitted up top, so overall a better look. This dress is absolutely gorgeous - it's classic, comfortable to dance and sit in.

Wonderful classy dress!
I've rented this twice now and it's a wonderful classic piece to wear for a nice brunch, for a casual wedding or any time you want to look fabulous! I actually don't think it runs that large--it's large in the chest but pretty fitted in the waist and hips (or maybe that's just a sign I need to lose a few pounds!) This dress is very pretty and feminine. The fabric is also high quality and has a slight sheen to it in person. I actually don't think as much of the belt it comes with, to be honest (it's sort of a cheap plastic-y material, not up to the caliber of the dress). However, it's worth a rental for the dress itself, which is the most important part. Worth a look!

I wore this to my semi-formal college graduation. It was a perfect length for an affair that my parents and grandparents were attending. I was the envy of my fashion-obsessed sister in this!

I had a great experience with RTR. I was a little nervous, because I'm a little older, can't really wear some of the newest styles at my age!! My daughter helped me pick the dress, and we had a great mother-daughter collaboration on it! The dress was beautiful, I felt good in it. The process was very convenient. I'll definitely rent another beautiful dress again!
I loved the dress, even though the bust was a bit loose on me. The fabric was very nice, it was becoming, a little longer than I was expecting, but still I got many compliments. Easy to dance in!! I think a size 8 would have been a better fit, however that size was not available at the time, so I went with a 10 (which is the size I usually wear).

Beautiful Dress, Runs Small
After reading that many others found the dress to run large, I ordered a size smaller than my usual, which would normally be a 10. The 10 wasn't available for my rental period, so I figured that would be ok. The dress doesn't zip past my rib cage. Even if I could get it to zip all the way, it would be incredibly snug. It's a beautiful dress. Disappointed that I won't be able to wear it, but glad that I ordered a backup dress from RTR and that it fit my sister-in-law perfectly, so at least someone was able to wear it! Hopefully I'll be able to rent the next size up for a future event.

Runs small
This dress fits really small. I could barely squeeze into the 12 and I usually wear a 10. I am short in the waist. and I have hips and booty. Really did not fit me well at all. I am returning it. The top part was too big/long on me and the hips too tight. It will fit you well if you have a long waist and order at least a size up if you have hips.

Very classy dress.
The chest/torso is super tight. The hips were on the looser side though, so that was a little weird. The length is great for tall girls.

This dress fits so perfect, made me feel really pretty! Very form fitting! I ended up wearing the yellow Kate Spade swing dress but this was a strong runner up! I will most likely re-rent this one since I didnt get a chance to wear it! Nude shoes, red lips, who gonna stop me :)

Got so many compliments on this dress, and pointed everyone to RTR.
Fits totally true to size. The only mishap for me was the belts. I am an 8, so I got an 8 and a 10. Well, the belts were totally different styles for both sizes! The 8 belt was too big but the 10 belt fit better. But that 10 was the wrong style belt. SO, if they had sent the right belt, they both would have been too big. Long story short, I think I read another review that said order your size and then 1 size down so you can use that smaller belt. Totally agree with that. The dress was gorgeous AND comfortable. Loved it! Wish I owned it -- I'd wear it again. :)

Lovely cut, beautiful fit!
This dress was only available in a 0, so I was thinking it was going to be too small, but it fit perfectly! It was a bit tight in the rib cage, but nothing I couldn't handle. The belt was also too big for the dress, so it looked better without it, but overall it was really comfortable and I liked the material. However, the ruffle part on the bottom was wrinkled and needed to be steamed. I didn't have time for that and I had rented a second look (because I was afraid of the size issue), so I ended up wearing the other one, but I absolutely loved this dress and wished I had more time and another occasion to wear it to!

II thought this dress would be a nice change of pace for my husband's company holiday dinner party.
This dress fit very comfortably. I wore it to an evening dinner party. I was very comfortable all evening. This dress is snug in the waist, but in a good way. It felt elegant. The belt did not fit my waist..so I tied a black sash around my waist. It worked very well. The best part is how much fun Rent the Runway is to use. They are amazing and very kind and easy to work with.

this dress looks great on you. I was looking @ this dress for an upcoming event in May. I was wondering if it was too "young" for me. We're in the same age range, so your posting immediately answered my question!

Great dress for a holiday party.
This dress is a perfect combination of classic yet sexy. I rented the size 2 and size 4- the 2 was a little tight on me (34D) so I decided to wear the 4. Neither dress came with a belt so I took a trip to the mall and picked up a really cute bow belt. The dress actually has a sheen to it so it looks better in person. I wore some classic 5 inch pointy toe heels and the look was perfect.

Beautiful dress, but...
Other renters said this ran true to size to large, so I ordered my size (12) and a backup 10. Unfortunately, the 12 didn't fit in the hips and barely zipped all the way up. In this case, I should have ordered up a size with my real size as backup! I had to return the dress without wearing it and had no time due to the holiday to have a replacement shipped, so they're crediting this to my account for next time. Great RTR PEOPLE experience, I think I should order up next time for a good RTR DRESS experience.

Adorable dress, but too small in the chest for me to wear.
I ordered this dress for a work conference and was unable to wear it. The chest was too tight. I normally wear an 8 or a 10 in dresses, but even the 10 didn't fit. It zipped but smashed my chest and was unflattering.

Lovely dress for a short-waisted person
The dress is very nicely made. I really liked the feel of the fabric and the print. On me, though, the waist and hip points were about 3" too high. Sizing up only made the waist way too loose. I am tall, but most of my height is in my legs - I don't normally have an issue with dresses being too short waisted. Also, although the fabric looks white in the photos, it is distinctly off-white IRL. I didn't have an issue with the belt like previous reviewers - mine fit perfectly. So maybe RTR has fixed that issue.

Straight with little give
This dress is not good for a girl with curves. I think it runs a size small, and really should be on someone with a straighter figure. Mine did not fit (even with the spanx), so I had to wear something else to my bridal tea. I would choose a size up for a second size.

Great first rental expierence! Felt perfectly dressed for an outdoor, semi-formal wedding in CA!
Appreciated the other comments about the roomier top, and ordered the 10 and 8; wore the 8. The material was light enough for a warm weather evening, and the print was dressy yet fun, which was exactly the theme of the wedding, with the frill on the bottom. Even got a few compliments from women I didn't know. Thanks, RTR!

Gorgeous, Comfortable Dress
I wore this for one of my bridal showers- theme being 50s era, Paris elegance... this dress fit perfectly! It was beautiful, the fabric comfortable. I added my own black belt (same as the picture) as my dress didnt come with one... added a large brimmed hat and it was perfect. would definitely recommend!

Great dress!
This dress is so cute, and easy to wear. I typically wear a 0 or 2, and I wore the size 0 and it fit great. The white isn't actually as bright of a white that appears in the photo, but nevertheless it is a pretty dress. Very comfortable too.

This dress was great! I didn't get a picture that I liked yet. I got a size 4 and 6. I thought I'd need the 6 but I was wrong! The 4 fit so well. I got tons of compliments at the wedding I attended. It's even better for dancing!

Great first rental! I wore this dress to my engagement party, and it was a HIT!
I recently lost quite a bit of weight since last year, so I wasn't 100% sure what size I should have ordered. If I could do it over again, I would have ordered a size 6 instead. This dress got so many compliments, it was unbelievable. Very simple and very classy.

I couldn't wear this dress, I'm too 'hippy'
I was so disappointed, when I got this dress it didn't fit right, Luckily I returned it and got a credit.
