The lace shoulders are beautiful and this is a very classy dress.

Size worn: L
Overall fit: Small

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.

It was for my daughters high school graduation

Overall fit: True to Size

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!

Elegant & beautiful color

Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is very elegant and conservative so PERFECT for a spring/summer wedding, especially if you're into yellow. The color is amazing and I loved the lace details on the sleeves and hem. My only complaint is that it is long so probably not best for petite heights under 5'5", but this would look stunning on taller heights and it is definitely a flattering cut!

I looked great and felt comfortable

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
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.

Size worn: L
Overall fit: True to Size

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).

Perfect dress for an outdoor summer event!

Size worn: L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
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.

Beautiful color, very flattering fit. I wore this to a wedding ceremony during the day, but changed to a sleeveless dress for the reception. This was a wise decision as I don't feel I would have been able to dance quite as freely. Received a number of compliments regarding the color and unique detail of the embroidery. Definitely Recommend

I absolutely love this dress. When I first received it I was a little apprehensive, it looked somewhat plain. But as soon as I put it on and it hit the sunlight!? I was in love!! I rented this for a Speed Dating event that I was hosting and it worked perfectly for the occasion. It photographs extremely well and the small details (the shoulder design) are FAB. It was so hard to send back!

Gorgeous dress and very form fitting!

Size worn: XS
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The small size was a bit baggy so I sucked in my tummy to fit the XS. I received several comments from several people on the dress and the overlook throughout the evening. Wasn't uncomfortably short, very breathable material and a gorgeous color. The details in the sleeves and the skirt bottom are much more vivid than they appear in the photograph.

It is a beautiful fabric, and not too short when you sit down, the hips are cut larger than most dresses so this would work well for a curvy figure.

Rented for a wedding but look wasn't quite formal enough so I wore it the next day for brunch with my hubby. Very comfortable and light-weight material. This went really well with a crop jean jacket.

Size worn: M
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
I ordered a Small and a Medium. Although I consider myself Petite, my chest is NOT! The Medium worked out very well. It was a little bigger than I am used to around the waist, but the small was too tight for my chest. The embellished shoulders were a show stopper! If Yellow is your color, I would definitely recommend this dress!!

Size worn: M
Overall fit: Small

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!

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.

This is a beautiful dress, the color and detail are stunning.

Size worn: M
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
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...

Size worn: XS
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
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!

Size worn: S
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
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.

Very bright color

Overall fit: True to Size

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.

Got lots of compliments on the bright color!

Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
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 fit on this dress is really weird. It is very tight in the butt and bust areas, but gathers in the middle. I ordered this dress in 2 sizes and neither one looked good. One of the dresses smelled and the silk was pulled in areas.

Beautiful color and details

Size worn: S
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
The dress is gorgeous. I couldn't stop looking at my shoulders. However, there is one MAJOR draw back, it wrinkles very easily. It's a raw silk material and the minute you sit it will wrinkle. Also, I'm a little curvy, there's no stretch. Great if you're gonna stand all night. Going up a size might reduce wrinkles. The seam went right across my butt and I can see how others would find the fit awkward. I purposely posted the wrinkle picture in case you are skeptical.
