Great fit. Got a lot of compliments with this dress.
Sleeves are a little tight. I have a pear shape. The dress fit well in the bust and waist. Love the length its not too short but if your tall it might be too short for you.

So comfortable and easy to wear!
Usually I would've worn a 16, but there weren't any available for the day I needed. The 18 was a little loose, but not so much that it looked messy. Very comfortable for long term wear, and the lace, which is sometimes hard to maintain, was in good quality. Got a ton of compliments!

I rented this for a silent auction gala.
Dress fit beautifully, was a great length, very flattering. I loved the neckline and back because I could wear a regular bra with it. The color is really nice.

Beautiful dress and beautiful color
I rented this for my son's first communion but ended up wearing my other rental instead as I felt this was too fancy for that event. But I loved this dress and would rent again the future for a wedding or more formal event.

The fit was amazing! Except for the arms....
I got the dress in a 12, my true size, and a 14. The dress fit will around my bust and waist. The problem was with the arms. Since there is a non-stretch fabric in the arms to create the "nude effect" under the lace, it had no stretch. I couldn't raise my arms above shoulder level without feeling like I might tear the dress. I was in love with the color and the fit everywhere else, but the arms were highly uncomfortable. I feel that if I would have gone up a size that the arms would have fit, but the rest of the dress would have seemed oddly large. :(

Love this dress!
I loved everything about this dress, color was perfect and it fit great, just a little delicate with the lacing part, the size 18 dress had a little tear in the lace near the zipper so I went with the next size up dress so I wouldn't do anymore damage!

So comfortable and loved the pockets! I would've worn the 8, but decided to wear the 10 because the arms on the 8 were a little too tight and I liked the extra room. So many compliments!

I wore this to a bridal shower. Paired it with nude heels and a white chunky necklace.
I wore the 4, the fit over all was good, the arms were a little tight but not terrible, I likely would have worn the 6 instead, but the color was much duller than the 4 and I LOVED the color of the 4! The length was good and it was comfortable once I got over the tightness in the arms. Overall, I loved this dress and would definitely rent it again!

This was a perfect dress to wear for an early fall wedding on Cape Cod.
Like many other reviewers noted, the sleeves of this dress are strangely tight/constricting. Having the backup size definitely helped alleviate that. I loved the color, the style, and most especially, the pockets. I received many compliments at the wedding I attended and would highly recommend renting this dress!

This dress was fabulous in every way!
Pros: Pockets!! Beautiful color, forgiving in the hips. Received compliments all night. Both the 4 and 6 fit, but I sized up for ease of movement and wedding party dancing. My husband didn't want me to send it back. Would definitely order again. Cons: The 4 seemed much less worn than the 6. The 4 was fresh both in it's bright blue color and overall quality of the stitching (inside and out). The 6 had ripped stitches in the silk lining of the arms but it didn't impact the fit or my night.

Super comfortable yet pretty dress.
As others stated, the smaller size fit my waist, but the arms and shoulders were too tight in the smaller size. I have broad shoulders and larger arms, and the dress has no stretch. I received many compliments! I love the tutu like layer between the gold underlay and the blue lace...gave this dress a fun swing! The blue color was stunning. I wore nude peep toe sling backs and gold jewelry. If you've a broad shouldered athletic frame, size up.

Sleeves run TIGHT
This was a great, very comfortable dress however others were NOT kidding when they said the sleeves are super tight. I ordered a 12 and 14 because of the sleeve reviews, the 12 had a rip on the lining right where the sleeve meets the shoulder- obviously someone else thought they were tight too. Wore the 12 because the rest of the dress fit great, even a little loose but I couldn't raise my arms above my head BONUS: it has pockets!

Absolutely loved it! Received so many compliments!
If you are between sizes go up! The 6 would have fit but the arms were a little too tight, so I went up to the 8 for comfort. The cut and pockets did make me look a bit hippy, but I had a blast twirling around in it and received so many compliments!

The sleeves are tight.
Rented this dress for a holiday party. The color is amazing and the lining is actually more of a gold color. It's very pretty. The shape is flattering and it has pockets. I had to size up because the sleeves of the dress were so tight. The lace doesn't have any stretch. However, once I squeezed my arms in I was perfectly comfortable all night. I received lots of compliments. Good rental but I won't rent this dress again.

So pretty!!! Will almost definitely rent again!
I wore this to a rehearsal dinner, and I loved it! It's a very versatile dress -- I wasn't sure how dressy the attire would be, so I tried it on with multiple pairs of shoes, and it looked pretty good with all of them! It looked really nice with nude heels, but I ended up going with a tan ankle boot that dressed it down a little, and I got a lot of compliments. I'm a pretty true size 4, but when I go for a different size it's normally a 2, so I went against RTR's stylist advice and chose the 2 as my backup. I won't be doing that again! As soon as I pulled out the dresses, they seemed smaller than usual, so I tried on the 4, and it was pretty tight. I didn't even try the 2, and I definitely would have worn the 6 if I'd had it. The areas where it ran small were the arms, shoulder, and torso (thankfully the hips and thighs weren't an issue since it floats away there). I have a larger bust, so the dress was borderline uncomfortably tight around my rib cage. My arms aren't normally a fit issue, but the sleeves were really tight too. But I still had a great time in the dress, and I don't think anyone but me noticed the dress was a little tight. I would definitely rent this again in a larger size! I would even buy it if it goes on sale, because it's one of those dresses that would work for almost any event -- it's fun, pretty, and classy!

Classy & a Beautiful shade of blue
I wore this dress for my engagement pictures and I couldn't have been more pleased with how my pictures turned out in this dress. The blue really looked beautiful with our venue background. The dress fit perfectly. I am only 5'1 and a petite figure so the dress came a little longer on me than on the model, but I loved where it fell and thought it looked great! This was my first time renting from rent the run way and after this experience, I was hooked.

Comfortable & flattering
This is a beautiful dress, the lining was so nice that it made the lace lay beautifully through the dress. Length: I am 5' 2" so the length is always a question. If you like a knee length and are short in stature, this dress is PERFECT! Fit: I wore the 18, (one size up from my standard) this made the bust flattering, but was tight on the arms without question. At first I thought "NBD" but at the end of the night my elbow was really uncomfortable and felt kind of bruised. Depending on your build take the arm aspect seriously but try both sizes. Beauty doesn't come without a little pain right? For the price, quality and fit...I would rent this again. I heart RTR. Thank you for another fabulous evening feeling beautiful.

Felt like a million bucks!!
I wore this for an engagement party I hosted. The fit and color of this dress were gorgeous!! I went up in size based off of reviews saying it was tight in the arms and I'm glad I did. It fit perfect and I'm sure if I wore my regular size 16/18 it would have been tight. I received SO many compliments. I am hourglass shape and the waist was accentuated beautifully. I wore a pair of small pearl earrings and a simple gold necklace with a pearl on it. Very delicate as I did not want to take away from the lace on the dress. I loved everything about this dress. I didn't want to take it off at the end of the night!!

Very pretty color. Flattering shape.
The flared skirt makes it easy to wear, especially if your hips are a problem area. I did end up wearing a larger size because the shoulders were tight on me (but this is often an issue for me). The lace overlay is very bright blue...a little brighter than I was expecting, but it was a flattering color on me. I received lots of compliments.

Ordered the dress two days before I needed it and could not have been more pleased! Arrived on time!
The arms and bust were snug at first on the size 10 but the 12 was too big around the waist. After wearing the size 10 for a couple of hours the arms and bust loosened up and it was easily danced in. Loved it so much, got tons of compliments.

Beautiful wedding guest dress.... tons of compliments
This dress was very comfortable and it was great for a fall/winter wedding! I loved that it had pockets. I did have to go up one size than my typical dress size, but it was very comfortable once I did. I initially though the skirt was too full for my body type, however I received compliments all evening and got used to the feel of the skirt. The color is very fun and didn't stand out too much as just being a wedding guest. I would wear it again!

Birthday Dress
I wore the dress for my birthday dinner. It is a great dress and comfortable. It was right in my arms, but I have large arms, hence dress with sleeves are not always great. It also wasn't too short. It looked super cute and got lots of compliments on it. Paired it with some high boots for not such a formal look. Good cute party, date or birthday dress.

Pockets and complements!
I liked this dress and got a lot of complements. I wore the 8, and probably could have fit in the 6 except the arms were a little tight on the 8 so I didn't even try on the 6. I always have a little trouble with tight sleeves so it should be fine if you don't normally have issues. I thought it would be a little more fitted in the waist, but that could be because I have a short torso. Very comfortable and fun (pockets!!!), would wear again!

beautiful lace and color!
I rented this to wear to my wedding rehearsal and dinner. The lace and color are beautiful. The fit was all wrong for my body so I didn't end up wearing this. The skirt has a lot of volume and I don't have large hips, but it was a lot of fabric for my taste. Might look better on straighter builds.

Perfect dress for a holiday party!
This dress fit very true to size. It was comfortable. It also had pockets! The only thing that I will say is that it is a little bit snug in the arms. But overall it was the perfect dress for this occasion!
