Summer wedding, Great dress.
This dress was very flattering on and the color was a nice vibrant blue. My only con, is that it was a bit tight in the chest. Other than that, the length was great and it had a nice flowy bottom.

One of my favorite dresses! I've rented it twice
I desperately wish I could buy this dress. Unfortunately it is only available in plus size via Rent the Runway. I love the color, fit, the sleeves, etc. etc. Highly recommended

Flattering for a spring wedding
The fit is true to size but tight in the arms. I was not uncomfortable, but I did have limited range of motion around my shoulders. The cut is conservative and went to my knees (I'm 5'4"), but the pattern and color were beautiful. There were a few loose threads that weren't very noticeable. It ended up being a chilly May day, and I was glad to have the sleeves.

Gorgeous dress
The dress was amazing! Wore it to my husbands formal military ceremony. I received so many compliments. Great quality. And beautiful color. Had to go up two sizes from my normal but most formal dresses tend to run small. Can't wait to rent the runway again!

Outdoor Wedding by the water, so beautiful!
The fit is great, SO many compliments on this dress, my only con was that it made your hips like wider than they are because of the pockets (which were awesome to have!), which I have big hips to begins with so adding to that isn't great. Spanx fixed that problem though! I would always try the size bigger because lace you never how exactly how it will fit.

Great fit, color, and style!!
This dress was more than I could have hoped for! I rented it to wear to my good friend's wedding, and it was just perfect! Other people complained that the sleeves were too tight, but I didn't find that to be the case. The dress was modest, yet lovely, and I felt incredibly elegant in it. The entire RTR process was easy, and I'm looking forward to renting again!

Great fit! Tons of compliments!
I rented this for my cousins bridal shower that I was helping to host. I went up to the 14 because I have a larger chest and am pretty broad in the shoulders. Wanted to feel more comfortable. 12 for fine, just a little tight in shoulders and arms. It was a really hot day and didn't feel like the fabric was heavy.

Stopped on the street
I wore this dress to a wedding. It was a big shorter than I expected, and the extra material & pockets made my hips look wider than they are; however, I was stopped on the street a few times by people giving me compliments. Color was gorgeous, and I liked that there were sleeves. If it was a just a little longer it would have been perfect!

Friend's May wedding lakeside in Massachusetts
I loved this dress; the color and the fit. I normally wear a 6 but for this dress it was an 8. I loved the fabric and due to the cooler May weather, I was warm without a wrap due to the satin lining. The pockets are a bonus and made it easy for storing lipstick and a tissue for the tears. I would rent this dress again. I read many of the other comments from other women who chose this dress and they were not wrong! Lovely choice and I will rent again! My profile is not allowing me to update; I am 60; 125 lbs and 5'3".

An excellent first RTR experience!!
Wore this to an outdoor fall wedding, and it was perfect! The material is gorgeous in person, and the dress is very well made. The arms were a little tight if I wanted to raise my arms over my head, but the 0 fit perfectly in every other way. Loved it!

Compliments!
Loved the style of dress! As someone that is petite, with an athletic build its very feminine. The only issue I had with the 4 was that the arms were indeed tight. I stuck with the 4 because it was much more flattering to my body shape. I also noted that the size 4 was much more of a vibrant blue than the size 6. Overall I would recommend this style to keep it classy but also have some style!

very nice for a wedding, super comfortable fit
This was cute and fun to dance in. I am 5'2" and size 10 with an hourglass figure; this is probably not the greatest style for me; better with no pattern and no full skirts, which tend to make me look heavier. But still it was incredibly comfortable and fun to wear, who cares?? Weddings are all about having fun.

Classy and fun!
True to size. Color and length were perfect. It was a little difficult to raise my arms above my head due to the cut and lack of stretch. The pockets were convenient, but they also made me look a little wider than I would have liked.

Great dress... wrong color!
This dress fits very snug in the arm/chest areas, but is very comfortable everywhere else. I thought I was ordering a navy dress, but as you can tell by the color in the picture - it came in Royal Blue. My back up size was actually Navy, but it was too small so I had to go with the Royal Blue. Not that big of a deal to some, but I was trying to match my daughter's navy dress for our family pictures. The pictures still turned out beautiful though!

My family saw the dress before they saw me!
My family literally saw my dress before they saw me. I got so many compliments on the color and the fit - I made sure to tell everyone it was rented from RTR! They fit was great. Difficult to zip on my own. Two things I would note: the neckline is very loose and the dress has 4 layers of fabric. It looks like it's a thin, one-layer dress, but it's heavier than that.

Wore this for a graduation and did not realize how warm the dress would be but it was a nice color.
The dress is cute, but isn't the best dress I've rented. First, I didn't realize how warm the dress is. It's a cute and lacy look but dress its self is rather heavy and warm and you don't get any air to your arms. Second, as you can see in the picture, the top photographs great but I feel like a lot of the detail gets lost in the bottom half of the dress. However, the color is great! It's a vibrant blue that catches your eye and the cream underneath is a great contrast. I also thought the length was perfect - it wasn't uncomfortably long for the hot weather but also wasn't too revealing for a formal event.

So comfortable and so many compliments!!
I didn't want to return this dress!! Wore this for a blue and gold-themed wedding and fit in perfectly. The dress itself is very high quality material. It was so comfortable to wear all day, and as an added bonus there were pockets! The 0 fit true to size for me, and was even able to accommodate my large-ish bust size. If I had one complaint, it would be that the liner layer didn't breathe well so it became very warm once dancing began. The dress was amazing enough that this didn't matter to me.

Beautiful, flattering dress
This dress is very comfortable and I would say pretty true to size. It was roomier than I expected and probably could have gone a size down but this totally worked. I love that it had pockets and the length was just right for a short girl. It was perfect for a cool spring evening wedding and looked amazing with a nice statement necklace. Arrived on time and was in excellent shape!

Two different colors and strange cut
I rented a 10 and 12, and the two dresses were drastically different shades of blue. I loved the fit of the 10, but the dress wasn't cut right and it pulled funny in the pockets. I ended up going with the 12, and was comfortable all night but it wasn't as "wow" as I expected from the other reviews.

This dress was extremely flattering.
The dress was comfortable and the color was stunning. I love the pockets! I decided to go with a size bigger than I normally wear because the chest area was a big tight. I would rent this dress again. There is a beautiful flow when you walk.

Vibrant and comfortable!
Hello pockets! They were the best feature of this adorable cocktail dress. Be aware, it is way more vibrant blue than the picture shows although of the 2 sizes I ordered they were drastically different shades of blue/navy-ish so be prepared for either to show up. Standout dress and lots of compliments!

Beware, stinky armpits!!
I'm usually a 10 bit the 12 fit better. The other users said the side view is not as flattering. I agree however, the color and details of this dress make up for (the unflattering look will not be as bad on smaller dress sizes). I loved the pockets. The color and detail of the dress is more substantial in person than depicted online. I ordered 2 sizes, briefly tried them on to see which fit the best. Bought shoes & jewelry accordingly. Didn't realize until day of even that the dress that fit ,sz 12, reeked of body odor!!! I DON'T EVER stink so it was appalling and pungent to me. It was not cleaned or not paid attention to in the armpit region during dry cleaning (seriously, this should be the 1st thing you clean!!) It was beyond disgusting!! I sprayed with perfume to try to make it work and it was the worst experience considering this was my 1st rental. Could only bear the stench for pics and had to change. Totally disappointed in RTR, they did refund minus shipping but that didn't help me for my event!! Scared to rent in the future...,

This dress fit like a glove! It nipped right in at the waist and the fit and flare looked adorable! I didn't want to take it off! (Plus a dress with pockets is always the best!) I can't recommend this dress enough!

Mountains!
I usually wear an 8/10, so I went up to a 10/12 and the 10 fit very well. Not too tight in the arms or in the bust. Long enough to wear to a conservative family wedding, but I got a ton of compliments and felt great dancing in it all night. Only drawback was that the material of the pockets made me look a bit hippier than I usually do.

Comfy, cute & tons of compliments
I loved this dress, when it came out of the bag and was on the hanger at first it didn't look how I expected, but once I put it on it looked amazing. There were other reviews saying it was tight in the chest, but as a 36DD I had no problems in the chest with the sizing. Wore it to a 90th birthday party for my grandfather and everyone was complimenting me all night long. Plus I didn't need to use Spanx! Highly recommend this dress to anyone- the pockets are a huge plus.
