This dress runs very big. I'm a 10 with a full bust, and was worried the Large would be snug. I ended up wearing the medium very comfortably. The dress is beautiful, the color is more vibrant than the photos give it credit for. It is great for dancing (I wore it to a wedding) and is very forgiving if you're trying to conceal a midsection. it's comfortable and easy to wear.

This dress was shorter in legnth than the brand new teal colored dress I also ordered as a backup color. I ordered the medium and it was shorter than the n/w tags teal medium. I also agree with the other reviewer that stated it looked royal blue which seemed purplish to me. I went with the teal got a ton of compliments. Wore with large cuff and big earrings.

This dress was a great color and easy to wear. I wore it to a wedding and got a ton of compliments. It runs a bit large, so if you are a 12/14 you'll be fine wearing the 12. Didn't need any shape wear, just a strapless bra (which didn't show at all). Would rent this again!

In LOVE with this dress and you will be too. I got this dress for a grab-a-date and got so many compliments. Ordered the medium and large and wore the medium, fit perfect. May be a little longer than the picture just depending on your height. Also the arm with the shoulder, when you lift it has a black under arm ( you cannot see unless your arm is up ). Super elegant dress and easy to wear!!! You will be pleased and love the designer! :o)

First, the dress is beautiful and in the end it ended up working out. Got lots of compliments and was happy with it. But, thought the sizes ran a little wonky. I'm a consistent 4/6 depending on the dress and the small in this dress fit like a garbage bag. The x-small was better - gave more shape overall - but the opening was really tight under my arm. A trip to the gym + steam room later, it fit okay, but would have been nice to feel more comfortable.

This dress was great! I wore the medium because of the length - it was a lot shorter than I expected, but the drapey fit was really flattering, and the color was vibrant! I would definitely recommend fun high heels to step up the look; the wrong accessories could make the dress "old".

This dress is very comfortable and cute. I shows the perfect amount of skin and is sexy and classy. I wore it with silver jewelry and shoes to a rehearsal dinner. Normally I wear a 4-6 and I rented an XS because that was all that was available and it fit wonderfully. I wish I could have worn this dress to the wedding instead of my bridesmaid dress!

I absolutely loved this dress! The draping makes it appealing to multiple body types, and hides the areas most women dislike. The color definitely stood out, and I received compliments all night long.

This dress definitely runs large - which is what most of the reviews already say - but I went with it anyway. I wore this dress to a wedding and truly dont know the last time I had so many compliments in one night. It is a glamorous and comfortable dress. A little weighty due to the draping, but I did not want to put it back in the mail and send it back, that's how much I loved it.

I loved this dress! I got so many comments on how nice it was. The color is a bit darker than it looks on here, more of a royal blue, but was beautiful. I wore it with silver heels and it looked great.

This dress was perfect! I'm petite, so I was worried this dress would be too big, but it fit really well. For me, it was the best of both worlds – I felt elegant, but it was also extremely comfortable! I received many compliments on the dress and necklace (I paired it with the Badgley Mischka Crystal Cluster necklace, which looked awesome with the dress)! I wish I could have kept both…

This dress was a total hit! I wore it to a rehearsal dinner and received compliments all night. The material is heavy which is perfect because it doesn't cling to your body. The color is bright yet appropriate for a night event. The way is the fabric drapes across is very flattering!

perfect dress post baby

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this dress for a wedding. I had a baby a few months ago and still have about 10-15 pounds to lose. Although I am usually a size 6, I am a 10 now. The medium fit well and was very flattering. It hid the belly and showed off the legs. A great recommendation.

I'm bigger in the hips and have a smaller waist and chest (5'7", 130lbs, 34B). I was originally worried bc my backup size (M) wasn't in and reviews kept saying this dress is so short, but the small ended up fitting perfectly and I didn't think the length was an issue at all. I received a lot of compliments and referred quite a few girls to Rent the Runway during my friend's wedding!

I have to say that I had so much fun wearing this dress. I felt incredible. I am short with a small bust, small waist and slightly wider hips. The XS was perfect. If my bust had been any larger it would have been too tight across from the left shoulder to the under arm on the right side, but lucky for me it was perfect. I wore black, suede JCREW platforms and the golden leaf earrings from RTR. It was awesome.

LOVE THIS DRESS! I wore it to a wedding and got so many compliments! I rented the M and got the L as a back up. The M fit almost perfectly, so I would say that the dress runs true to size. Like other reviewers have said, the dress is short - and the M was just a little too short for my comfort. The L was only slightly bigger and just a little longer, so I wore it instead. Great dress - very comfortable and flattering!

I have never gotten so many compliments on a dress in my life. I wore this to a wedding this weekend and it felt great, flowly and loose but a solid structure. I ordered an XS and a S, ended up wearing the S because the XS felt tighter under my arm.

I wore this to a summer wedding and got a ton of compliments. The color is wonderful and was super flattering with my fair skin. As others have mentioned it is very comfortable and easy to move in. While this dress looked great in person, I definitely ended up with a couple of unflattering photos due to how loose it is around the middle in combination with my larger bust so definitely pose like the model in the picture to show some shape in photos! The length was perfect for my height - not too short at all. One of my fave rentals until I saw the photos...

I wore this to my 28th birthday party... And I stole their breath. Not only did I feel special because I thought I looked glamorous, but there is nothing more appealing than stealing someone's breath and having them say "wow! you look.... wow." Love this style and dress!

LOVED LOVED LOVED this dress. I ordered a S and a XS and they both fit. The XS showed off the body a little bit more but it was a little tight for me under the arm. I wore the S and loved it. I really recommend this dress to anyone no matter what body shape you have. It hides any imperfections without having to wear spanx.

The medium size fit, but my mom made me wear the large size because it was slightly longer, and she thought the dress was too short. I wore it to a wedding, and my grandmother apparently also thought it was inappropriate, and my aunt (the mother of the bride) thought it was "interesting". But I liked it.

Wore this to a formal and it was perfect! I got compliments all evening and I felt beautiful. It was shorter than I anticipated, but I didn't compensate for my height when I ordered my size (small). Most of the reviews had said it ran a bit big, and it did. I would normally order a medium, but the small was perfect - I didn't feel like I was swimming in it, but it draped just in the right way. I didn't want to send it back when I was done! As for accessories - I wore it with a pair of nude pumps (made my already long legs look EVEN longer) and the Southern Plantation earrings (listed in the "complete your look". LOVED IT!

Beautiful cut and color but DO NOT rent this dress if you're over 5'6. WAY too short to go to a wedding or anything for that matter.

Amazing Dress. Would totally rent this again. The color is beautiful. The fabric was thicker than I expected. Not a bad thing...but wouldn't rent it for a beach wedding or for any outside event in the summer. Really comfortable dress and can cover any flaws.

I had just had a baby when I rented this for a party. I thought I would need the large but the medium fit great. The jersey material has a nice stretch to it so I felt comfortable and the draping hid all my bumps and extra curves that I wasn't too comfortable showing yet.

This dress is flattering in every way possible. It is very well made (it's lined and heavier than it looks but not too heavy) and hides any mid-section imperfections. The color is amazing - very vibrant. The dress is sexy without being to tight, low, hi-cut, etc. One thing to note - I decided not to wear a bra with it and it did make me look a little flat but I wore super high heels so I looked tall and skinny so I wasn't out of proportion. I paired it with the Omala necklace and the look was perfect for a night out.

gorgeous dress, but taller ladies beware! This dress is extremely short. When I took it out of the bag, it looked more like just a skirt. The color/fabric are gorgeous, but I cannot actually wear this to the wedding as initially planned. I couldn't dance without showing my tush. Would recommend for petite/average height

I wore this to a wedding with the suggested necklace and recieved so many compliments. I LOVED this dress. I'm currently 5 mos pregnant and this was extremely flattering. The color was true to photograph, and the draping was ideal for distracting from a tummy and not clingy at all. I'd recommnend for anyone wanting to downplay a little tummy.

I absolultely loved this dress! It was so comfortable and flowed so easily! I wore it to an evening wedding and received so many compliments on it. The color is gorgeous. I paired the dress with nude platform heels and pearl drop earrings and it looked fabulous. I would order a size smaller than you would normally wear, so as to avoid looking a little on the frumpy side. Great rental!!!

I wore a S, and I am a size 4. XS was too tight in the armpit area. ( my backup size) Got killer compliments all night, looked like a godess. AMAZING color, looks really good with gold, and i am a silver girl. Would rent again.
