I wore this dress to a wedding in October. I ordered a 4 and 6 and the shoulders were tight in both so I went with the six. Other than being a little tighter in the shoulders, it was very comfortable and I felt very beautiful. I got many compliments from compete strangers! I would recommend this dress!

Received countless compliments on this dress!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress fit wonderfully and was extremely flattering! I was nervous about choosing size but once I read the reviews I decided on the 12. It had just enough room up top to accommodate my large bust (34G) and the length hit right at my knee. The sleeves were a little snug but not uncomfortable and I was able to move and dance freely. The color was a beautiful shade of blue and paired well with a pair of nude pumps. Bonus:This dress has pockets! I carried my IPhone6 and a tube of lipstick with me and no one could even tell. This was my first RTR experience. Can't wait for another event to do it again!

The fit was very true to size. The arms are not tight if you have smaller arms. The sleeves were not tight or uncomfortable on me. The pockets were an awesome surprise! The size 4 and 2 were slightly different colors. The size 2 was slightly worn and faded. The size 4 was a beautiful color and the dress looked brand new. I would def wear this dress again. Wonderful experience!

I rented this dress as one of two outfits for my engagement pics. It is a very comfortable fit, even in the bust. The lining is thick satin and felt very supportive. The lace is beautiful and the color really popped, my photographer was pleased. I would rent this again for a daytime event, I have no complaints about the fit.

I was totally skeptical about this whole experience but I would do it again and again!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I have smaller shoulders and a big ol' booty, so I have trouble finding dresses in local shops and department stores at an affordable price. I figured that the shape of the dress would be flattering and I wouldn't be worried about it not fitting the booty. However, that left me with concerns about the shoulders and sleeves not fitting. I didn't want them to be too roomy or not big enough for my yoga biceps. To my great relief, the dress fit so true to size and I could tell that it's a high-quality piece. I was comfortable and could cut a rug, while looking extremely elegant. I felt very beautiful in it and would recommend this dress for any body type.

Dress was true to fit and the color was incredible! More of a Cobalt Blue than a Royal Blue. The silk lining inside helped in the chilly weather! Only two downsides was that it had pockets which made the dress flare out a little bit in the hip area, and the sleeves were a little form fitting! Other than that, so happy with my rental! Definitely wear a chunky statement necklace to make it pop!

Great rehearsal dress

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this for my rehearsal dinner. Its a beautiful royal blue with a nude underlining. I would've given it 5 stars but there was a small tear in the lace on the back of the elbow. I called RTR right away to let them know and they were awesome. They noted my account to make sure I wouldn't be held liable and offered to overnight another. The hole wasn't super noticeable so I wore it. The other thing about this dress is the pockets. I was excited to have them but i have wide hips and it made them look even bigger. I pretty much kept one hand in a pocket all night to pull it down. Other than that, The size 10 was perfect and received lots of compliments. Then a few weeks later I notice Meghan Trainor is wearing the same dress to the CMA awards- how cool is that!!?

Different color than shown- tight arms

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The color is definitely more of a bright blue than shown on the model, which was fine by me! I wore this to my nephew's christening at a country club. It was mostly comfortable; the top was very fitted so it was a little difficult to move my arms up and down. The arms are definitely very snug so if you have unusually large arms this might not fit. Tip: Stand up straight. I was crouched over in most of the pictures- not sure if it's bad posture or I just feel weird in boatnecks (combination?) and I looked awkward in some pics because of it. Fits true to size. You can't really go wrong with a ML :)

No running around the mall & Compliments all night

Size worn: 0
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress has four layers of material so was perfect for chilly night event. I added a little fur vest when outside. I would have liked it to be a little more fitting in lower waist/hip area and more room in bust, but overall I was comfortable all night long. I paired with NicoleMiller Southern Plantation earrings and bracelet. If the event were more casual, I would have definitely thrown on a skinny belt. I was dreading going store to store, fitting room to fitting room to find the one - this was hassle free! Can't wait to do it again.

This dress was amazing. I got compliments all night from guests at the wedding I wore it to! Being a bust size 34DDD, finding dresses that fit well can be a challenge. This dress was perfect! It's so comfortable which made it easy to dance in. And the pockets! Obsessed with them! I will say it was tighter fitting in the arms, like others said, but it wasn't too tight. Loved my first rent the runway experience. Can't wait to order something else!!!

This was my first experience with Rent The Runway, and I was very impressed! The dress I ordered (and complimentary extra size) arrived neatly hung up with a plastic covering. They also threw in a mini deodorant and dry shampoo :) So, now to rate the dress... WOW This dress is fantastic! I found it to be very flattering and the color is just gorgeous. I wore this to a friends wedding and I received so many compliments. Everyone wanted to know where I got this dress. You will not be disappointed if you choose to rent this. I recommend ordering the size you usually wear and the next size up. I wouldn't hesitate renting this again. Thanks RTR!

Happy with this dress overall! Wore it to a wedding in an awesome art gallery on a chilly November day. Great fit (true to size) and length to be able to get down on the dance floor. Tons of compliments throughout the night and the color was perfect. Paired with a crystal necklace and gold wedges, both from J.Crew. Only negative feedback I have is that the lining hung slightly below the lace in a couple of areas, but everyone said they couldn't tell. I even had someone tell me I had on the next best dress other than the bride's!

Cute dress but didn't get to wear it

Size worn: 4
Rented for: Formal Affair
The sleeves were rather tight. I have larger biceps but the sleeves were somewhat uncomfortable for me when I tried it on. I ended up wearing a different dress to the rehearsal dinner and I'm glad because I would have been uncomfortable all night I think. Still, it was a pretty dress and if you have smaller arms you'll be fine.

It was a beautiful dress. Unique color, beautiful blue with a shimmer of gold peeping through!

Reviews are correct, very tight across chest and can't lift arms above head. I usually wear a 6 but got an 8 because I was concerned. Glad I did, the 8 was much better around chest, and flowed nicely around hips. I wore it to a formal dinner/work function in New York on a cold November night - so perfect, kept me warm. No dancing involved, so I didn't have to worry about lifting my arms! I loved the pockets. Very elegant. Received lots of compliments. Would rent the dress again.

This dress was beautiful and perfect for my ten year high school reunion. My only complaint is that the arms were very tight and slightly uncomfortable. I had to go a size up to feel more comfortable in the arm/shoulder area. That being said, the rest of the dress fit like a glove and I received so many compliments. The deep, cerulean blue is gorgeous in person. Would definitely rent again!

I rented this for a week so I could wear it to see Wicked on Broadway, and for Thanksgiving. The dress was perfect for both occasions. It's a gorgeous blue that would look great on any skin tone. It fit me pretty well. I probably could've used a 4 since I've been losing a bit of weight, but the 6 would've fit perfectly a few weeks ago. I wasn't bothered by the bit of excess fabric around my waist come turkey time :) I was very comfortable. Length was spot on for a nice event. Looks great with cream, ivory, and nude accents because of the nude under layer.

This is a great dress, thick material and very pretty. I felt very comfortable in it to. The cut of the dress and the material do a great job of hiding a few extra lbs. The length was a little longer then I wanted, and I am 5' 6" so make sure you consider that if you are shorter.

I wore this dress to one of my best friend's weddings. It was a great choice!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
Fit: I am usually a size 3 in pants and a Small in shirts/dresses. I ordered a 2 and a 4 as my backup. The 2 was a bit roomy, and a tad long. It fit well enough to be comfortable, but I do wish I had ordered the 0. I do wonder, however, if the 0 would've been too restricting and/or too short! Comfort: Super comfortable, a good lining for a lace dress kept me warm, sleeves weren't itchy at all! Color: I got so many compliments on the color, such a pretty royal blue! Accessories: My necklace and clutch were both rented from RTR and complimented the dress perfectly! Con: Be careful wearing bracelets with this dress. The lace fabric catches onto bangles and bracelets easily. I didn't wear any, but one of my friends hugged me and almost got caught on it.

With a little more stretch, it would have been perfect.

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress is a gorgeous cobalt blue. The lining of the dress is satin---there is NO stretch at all to this dress. I'm 5'2" and it hit right at my knee. For busty ladies, it might be a bit snug there. I'm a 34F and needed to wear my thinnest bra in order to fit comfortable over my chest. The arms were also pretty tight on me as well--I do have a bit larger arms. Despite what I felt with the dress, it looks beautiful on. It highlighted my hourglass figure and it did make my waist look small. I think the dress is WONDERFUL, but there might have dresses I would have been more comfortable in.

This dress was fantastic! I rented for my company holiday party and felt appropriately formal yet super comfortable all night long. Overall the fot was great and the color was phenomenal. I had a little bit of trouble with the zipper, as I have with other dresses I have rented, but nothing a little help couldn't fix. The only con I have is that the pockets (which I love) make for a slightly bulky hip area, which adds volume to my already wide hips. Regardless, it was super comfortable, luxurious and vibrant. I felt amazing in this dress and I am sad to send it back!

This dress is gorgeous and very well made! I ordered the size 2 and the size 4 for back up. The size 2 fit perfectly, but it was very faded in comparison to the size 4 back up dress. Overall, the only difference in fit between the two sizes was in the bust, so I went with the 4 because I love dthe rich royal blue color better than the faded one.
