This dress was just perfect for my engagement photo-shoot.
Nice color; really complements darker skin tones.

Love at first sight, but was unable to wear to my event :(
I fell in love with this dress and soon as I saw it on the site! I tried on the medium first and it was way too big for me. The structure of this dress is a bit odd in that the hip area kind of puffs out. I feel like this would work well on a curvier figure. The color and details are fantastic. Wish I could have made this work!

I was not able to wear the dress because it runs small BUT I contacted RTR and they were able to send me another one just in time for my event! The dress was really pretty and will probably try to rent it again someday!

Absolutely gorgeous! I wore it to my brother's law school graduation and got complements all day!
This dress does fit on the smaller side. I usually wear a size 2-4 in dresses, but I found the small to be a bit too snug for comfort. I ended up wearing the medium, which was a much more generous fit, but I wished there was a size in between the small and the medium. Overall, I would wear this dress again and again if I could!

Unfortunately it was too small :(
I rented this dress only 2 weeks before my event. Unfortunately, L was not available. M didn't fit over my hips. It kept riding up. And it was tighter on my shoulders too. Runs small. Gorgeous dress though! I will definitely rent it again in L.

Did not fit
Unfortunately, the dress did not fit. I normally wear a size 4, but have natural DD size breasts. I ordered both the M and L to give my breasts room. While the dress fit and zipped up and looked fantastic from the ribcage down, unfortunately the chest part was so tight I was afraid to wear it because there was no way I would be able to lift my arms without tearing the dress. So I unfortunately was unable to wear the dress.

Fit was weird, bunched around waist and the lace on the arms was a tight, uneven line- the dress just hangs oddly. I did not wear it

I could barely get this dress over my chest/hips. It was extremely tight. That being said, it's a beautiful dress and color. Just didn't work out for me.

Amazing Dress!
This dress was perfect for the winery wedding that I went to. It fit so well and it was light and airy. I got tons of compliments on it. I have been wanting to wear this dress for awhile now and was so glad that I found the perfect occasion. This dress was great!

Great summer wedding dress!
Loved this dress! The color was amazing, as well as the detail on the sleeves and on the hem. Only issue is that it does run a bit small.

Gorgeous dress for a summer wedding!
I wore this for a summer wedding and absolutely loved it. I am usually a M, but thankfully I had the L for a backup. The M hugged all of the wrong places and I was way too uncomfortable to wear it. The L was good with spanx :) Once I had the tummy tucked in, I was very comfortable all night. Got tons of compliments. The color is AMAZING in pictures. I was doing a lot of dancing so a part of the sleeve ripped a little bit (arms could not move up and around very freely), but other than that I was very comfortable all night long!

This is a beautiful dress, the color and detail are stunning.
I absolutely loved this dress. The color is beautiful as well as the lace detail. Everyone loved it. I was nervous to rent this dress after reading reviews but I found that a lot of the good reviews were my body type. I ordered a medium (my normal size) and large just in case. I ended up wearing the medium, it was a little snug but I think it was meant to be, the large didn't fit at all. If you're average hips and average bust this dress should work just fine for you. I could see it being a problem otherwise because those are the two tighter areas.

Fun color, awkward fit...
I loved the color of this dress, but was a little disappointed in the overall fit and sizing. I ordered both the XS and S, and found that there was a HUGE disparity between the two sizes. I was also a bit confused by the placement of the lace on the bottom portion of the dress-- while the dress looked fabulous when I was standing up, the lace potion was both lose and hit awkwardly across my backside, often bunching up when I walked. Overall the dress was a perfect fit for a summer bridal shower, but the fit was a bit odd.

Beautiful Detail!
The dress has the most beautiful detail on the shoulders and hem. The color is bright and fun - looked great with blonde hair. However, I have a curvy figure and the detailing on the hem cinched in, causing the dress to billow up around my waistline. I ordered a 0 and a 2 and wound up wearing the 2 - beware this dress runs SMALL.

Not for a hourglass figure
Beautiful dress with excellent detail however I couldn't wear it. I'm couldn't zip the dress with girls (even without a bra)! Also the dress it my hips at a weird place that made the dress pucker in the front. All in all, if you are smaller up top you should be good.

Too bad it fit so strangely...
I rented this dress for an awards banquet, which I co-host. The dress arrived on time & fit really well, but the seem beginning the lace detail fell right in the middle of my backside. It seemed like it should have either been higher to start at my rear or lower to start below it. As a result, there was a weird "poof" right about the seem around my bum and belly. I found it so strange that I put it back in the box and wore one of my own outfits.

Very bright color
The color is very bright yellow, which is fun but definitely a spring / summer dress. As many others have said the lace detail on the skirt does not stretch at all so size up as the dress being even a little too small will make it sit very awkwardly and ride up.

Super cute. Great for day or night.
The lace sleeves are very delicate and pretty. The color is bright and fun. The material is not very forgiving, so if you are like me and have hips I would recommend going up a size.

The dress is cute, bright yellow with lovely details . Ordered my size small, although it was too big and looked baggy. Thankfully, i had a tiny yellow belt that i used and it worked out beautifully!

Got lots of compliments on the bright color!
Rented this to wear to my cousin's bridal shower at a country club. Loved the bright yellow color - definitely stood out in the sea of muted fall tones so many others wore. The fit is flattering, but a bit odd - was very tight in the bust (to the point where I couldn't, and really didn't need to wear a bra), and a tad loose in the butt & hips. It also got a bit uncomfortable in the shoulders after a few hours - was uncomfortable to raise my arms up, as the fabric does not have a lot of give and it tended to dig into my armpits. Aside from fitting issues - it's a gorgeous dress and I definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to stand out at their event!

The lace shoulders are beautiful and this is a very classy dress.
The fit on the website was correct; this is great for smaller busted women. I almost busted out of mine because I'm a 36D. Other than the small bust, the rest of the dress fit perfectly. I adored the lace shoulders and the silk was such a great quality.

My favorite RTR dress so far
I wore this dress to a summer wedding and it was perfect. It's not too short, the color is gorgeous, and the cap sleeves were so beautiful and flattering. The fabric does not stretch at all and the cap sleeves are on the tighter side (couldn't easily move my arms up to dance) so while this dress is true to size, I would order up for the backup size. The top part of the dress is snugger than tha bottom half, so proportions are also something to consider. I wore it with nude heels which worked well.

It was for my daughters high school graduation
This dress was perfect for her she is a small girl we ordered the 2 and the 4 and we went with the 4 because it fit better the 2 was a little tight in the bust area and made her look too small. The color and the length were perfect not to short or bright. I love the material of the dress and no one had anything on like this! Glad we found rent the runway!

Disappointing fit
I loved this dress and thought it was gorgeous, but it was just a little too tight. I usually wear a 6 in dresses and so I ordered the medium. When I put the dress was on, it zipped up fine, but was very tight across the back and bunched up in an unflattering way. It's too bad, because it would have been great to wear!

Not for those w/ broader shoulders.
I rented this for an industry party - thought the bright color would be fun for spring/summer. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to wear it - even though I rented the large, I couldn't zip it up past my mid-back/rib-cage area. I typically wear a size 10 & have an athletic build/broader shoulders and this only zipped up to my waist...wouldn't go any further. Sadly, had to return it.

I looked great and felt comfortable
When I first received the dress I was a little disappointed because it wasn't fitting me like it did when I tired it on at the NYC showroom. It turned out that the problem was the bra that I was wearing which pushed my breasts up more so it made the dress difficult to close & it felt tight. When I changed the bra everything fit just right and I was comfortable the whole night. It's a simple dress, but a few accessories, a nice hairstyle, and the right shoes make it pop. The bride asked her close friends to wear yellow which proved to be difficult for nearly everyone so I was glad to have found this dress on this site. It was at the top of my budget but worth it in the end.

I wore this for a daytime wedding at a country club and it was perfect for the occasion.
It gave me a nice shape and was comfortable. It was loose and flattering enough that I didn't feel like I needed spanx (which was important to me since it was a daytime, outdoor, late June wedding in Connecticut).

Size isses
I rented the small and the medium for a summer wedding. Unfortunately, I could not zip the small because it was so tight and the medium hung on me and was far too big. I'm not sure why there was such a significant difference in size. I ended up returning both and receiving a merchandise credit. I was disappointed because it was a beautiful dress, but was happy with the customer service process.

Beautiful for a casual wedding
I fell in love with this dress for a somewhat formal wedding, and unfortunately when it came it just wasn't formal enough. It is a beautiful dress, but I didn't think it was as formal as it looks in the picture--think more sundress than cocktail dress. Had it been a more casual wedding, it would have been perfect!

Perfect dress for an outdoor summer event!
I wish I owned this dress! The detail in the sleeves and the skirt of the dress really came out in pictures. The fit was excellent. I have very broad shoulders and this dress fit just perfectly around the shoulders and waist. It gave me a great curvy figure. I wore this dress for a black tie event and received multiple compliments and asked where I got this dress.

Delicate, feminine stunner
Love this dress! The detailing on the sleeves and the bottom hem is beautiful. One of the sleeves showed a little unraveling from all the wear but it was unnoticeable in person. The color is sunny and memorable, perfect for summer events. I wore this to a rehearsal dinner and was recognized thereafter as the girl in the yellow dress. I felt pretty and ladylike all night - I wish I owned it!!
