Super cute and unique
Adoable dress which caught the eye all night. I wore it braless but it looked fine. I also was very self conscious about my very pale legs (in Miami) and wore it with hose and black shoes...looked awesome. Super comfortable and was confident and flirty all night!

Cute dress
I ordered a 0 and 2 and ended up wearing the 0. The 2 fit but looked more like a work dress and was a bit looser. The 0 fit tighter but it looked like someone had hemmed the bottom on it. It was rippling at the edges. Overall cute other than the bottom hem.

Backless Success!
I never thought I could handle a backless dress, but this one proved me wrong. It was tight enough that it worked for me with the help of a backless bra. It is very short, but great for a fun night out.

I WANT THIS DRESS
I rented this for a dinner party that got cancelled last minute. I decided to wear it out for a fun night with friends and received soooo many compliments. The picture does not do it due it justice. Loved it so much wish it was mine. If it helps I'm 5'3 and weigh 136. The 6 fit perfectly.

Great party dress for bachelorette in Miami!
Wore this for a night in Miami. Loved the dress, only complaint is that it rides up a lot when you walk. I got a 0 and 2 and ended up wearing the 0 (didn't even try on the 2). I used a nubra but would have been fine with no bra at all (very small bust- 34A). I was worried this dress would be too short but I didn't find that at all, although I'm short myself at 5'0. Loved this dress and would rent again!

Beautiful dress, but way too short
I think this dress is beautiful, particularly the cutout back and the vibrant splash of colors across the front, but this dress is obscenely short. I'm comfortable showing my legs and wearing short dresses, but there's a difference between classy short and inappropriate short, and this dress did not hit the mark. Didn't wear.

Color and details are amazing!
The material is a bit thinner than I was expecting for this dress, and it does run very short (I am 5'4 and it was above mid-thigh for me). But this is a very fun colorful dress, the low back is also an extra plus!

Fun, sexy but still comfortable!
This was a fun, colorful cocktail dress that I wore to a rehearsal dinner. It runs true to size but is on the short side. The material is comfortable and very stretchy. I just wore pasties but did not need a bra. Great dress!

Love the Print!!
Really short but love the cut out back and the beautiful colors! Wore it to my 25th birthday and it was a success! No bra needed, material is thick enough to cover but one can opt for petals if needed.

Wore the dress to my engagement party and it was a hit!
The dress was a perfect fit and the splash heading towards the side really accentuates the waistline. I'm petite but curvy and this dress was tight in the right places- but not too tight either. It was the right length for me, but it is short and would likely be short on taller people

Cool pattern, open back
This dress is cute and the print is different. I wore it to an art gallery and drinks on Vacation and it was perfect. I got a lot of compliments.

Fun pops of color
I've rented this dress twice. The bottom is a little odd. It scrunches up, but it is otherwise a fun dress to wear.

Love this dress, but was a little big.
This dress is super cute, but it was a little too loose on me. I got a 0 because that is my usual size, but I probably should've gotten the 00. If the fit had been better, it would've been perfect!

Great fun dress
This dress was great for my friend's wedding at an art museum. The print is really interesting and the open back is a great detail. I have bigger hips, and the bottom of the dress definitely fits snuggly, so I wore the size 8 instead of the size 6. The dress is a little short and rides up a little when dancing, but it wasn't a big deal. Loved wearing this!

Firework Dress for the 4th
Fun dress for a July 4th wedding. Fit was tight but the thick fabric smooths everything out. I wore a nubra with it and had no problems. It was comfortable all evening!

Loved this dress!
I wore this dress for my sorority semi formal. It fit great and was very comfortable and flattering! The only bad this is that it is a tad short, so I wouldn't suggest this dress for anyone taller than 5'5". Overall a great rent though!

Fun and flirty!
I wore this to my fiance's graduation party in the southern heat in June. It was a standout dress for sure. Fun pattern on the front and flirty backless cut. Was tighter than I expected and rode up a bit when I walked. Definitely worth it though! Was tight enough on top to wear without a bra. Would rent again!

Perfect dress for a night out
This dress fit perfectly and was so comfortable!!! Went on a little getaway with my husband and this dress was gorgeous for a night out. It was short but I did not have any issues where the dress would fall as in other reviews. I would definitely rent this dress again!

Favorite dress I have rented!
I LOVE LOVE LOVED this dress! Probably my favorite dress I have rented! The colors are beautiful! This dress is very very sexy! And short, and the back is very open. If you are worried about it being too tight or too short size up! The material was great, very stretchy. It did ride up a little, but I didn't have any trouble dancing the night away! I would buy this dress or rent it again in an instant!

Very short
While I love the style and color of this dress, it was VERY short and if you have any sort of a booty... you can forget about wearing this and feeling comfortable. I tried to wear it with booty shorts to help feel less exposed. When sitting down I felt as if there was no coverage what so ever and I was quite self conscious of that. I think it it were longer, it would have been perfect.

"Work in Progress" for Halloween!
Thank you Rent the Runway for the rental and inspiration for one of my favorite Halloween costumes ever! I saw this idea on your site a few years ago and had wanted to recreate it ever since. Such a success. I felt pretty and uniquely costumed all night!

Great color and cut!
Loved the colors and cut of this dress! Perfect to feel unique at a wedding and not upstage the bride. It complimented my curves, but taller-proportioned ladies watch out. It is very short; I wore a long cardigan to protect my backside o_O

Awesome birthday outfit
I usually wear size 4. It fit me but was a little snug and since the dress is very short, I opted to wear size 6. You don't need a bra with backless feature and very nice lining. It was so fun! I dressed it down with taupe chunky and strappy heels and a jean jacket. I wore these great mystery surprise earrings -picked by stylist. I highly recommend but caution anyone with a fuller bottom (derrière) than me from wearing it. I don't think it would work or look classy.

The bride rode in on a unicorn, so this artful dress was a hit. :)
Fit well except my torso was too short and I had to pin the cap sleeves. Luckily there was a poof to the design of the sleeves so it was undetectable. I got lots of compliments. It runs on the short side so be prepared for that. The botom hem is weird from too many washings but only you will notice.

This dress was comfortable and easy to dance in, but it's definitely short! It also rides up a little.

I wore this for an Indian wedding and loved it. It's spunky! It's backlesss so you have to be careful with a strapless bra or a low bra cut but it was great!

Sexy fun party dress that was flattering and comfortable.
As the other reviews have mentioned, this dress is SHORT! It's not super noticeable while standing, but if you sit down, you have to be on top of it or else your undies will show. It has a bit of stretch so hugs your waist and is comfy. I couldn't get the hemline to do right. The material is not such that in can be ironed crisply so it was a little odd at the hem, but probably only noticeable to me. I wore one of those stick on nubras and it worked well. Lots of compliments all night. Fun to dance in. Hip and happening dress but I didn't feel like I looked like I was trying too hard to be young. A great alternative to something sparkly.

Love the color and back!
Generally a 6 but this one was a little too tight around the hips and thighs. The 8 fit my lower half better but was a little big up top. Very comfy though and easy to wear without a bra. Lots of compliments!
