I felt beautiful at 9 months pregnant.
It was such a fun dress. It would probably be a great vacation dress too.

Stand out of the crowd
I got this dress for a beach wedding and it was PERFECT. The fabric was light weight and was roomy around the waist. I added a belt to hike the dress up a bit 'cause it was too long for short me. Overall, it looked beautiful in the photos!

I loved this dress! Did not want to send it back :)
I wore this dress for our summer engagement photo shoot and it was so comfortable. The colors/print also photographed beautifully! I felt the dress ran large, but I was able to add a belt without it being visible in the pictures. I got some many compliments on this dress! You'll love it :)

Unique and comfortable piece. Perfect for a vacation in paradise!
This dress is stunning. The pictures don't do the dress or the vibrant colors justice. If you are looking to stand out (in a good way) this is the dress for you. The only negative for me was the sizing. The dress ran extremely large, so I was constantly having to pull it up. If you are petite in the chest section, I'd wear a good bra to help hold the dress up. Overall a very impressive piece.

The people.
Ran large so I wore it with a belt. Very comfortable maxi that I wore for a birthday dinner. Colors were pretty but probably would not rent again. I got this rental for free so I'm glad I didn't have to spend money on it. If it was more form fitting I would give it an extra star. But with strapless dresses it's always a gamble.

Got tons of complements!
It was a really fun dress to wear! Loved the colors! I thought I would wear the large but I ended up wearing the MR because the top was just very loose on the large. It's a really long dress. The MR was perfect length with 4" heels on. Just a note on the fabric: it was super comfortable but the fabric is very thin. Spanx recommended for the curvy girls like myself.

Very unique print!
I wore this to a beach wedding and it was perfect. I ordered a SR but it felt and looked more like a SL because the back of dress fell to the floor. I'm 5'5" and the length of the SR would be perfect with 3-4 inch heels. Beautiful dress - the compliments didn't stop! Would rent again.

GREAT dress to wear to a summer party!!!
The dress was absolutely beautiful!!! The colors are much more vibrant than what you see on the model and the fabric is so comfortable!! It was plenty long for me, WITH heels, and I'm 5'9 1/2". I found the most gorgeous jewelry at Macy's that worked, and planning to keep them because I'd definitely rent this dress again. I wore it to my 30th high school class reunion and even so I was one of the dressiest people there, it was a great outfit for a party! The only negative was that I wished I'd rented the small. The bust was too big and I had to pin it to my bra in several places to keep it from creeping down, and it still was big. (I wear a 34D, so I was surprised!). I also could've belted it to prevent it from falling down. Also still had plenty room in the body, so next time I'm going with a small.

Awesome, awesome dress!
I ordered the 4R and 6R and couldn't tell the difference. I wore the 4R, and it was just barely too long (I wore sandals with a tiny heel and had to hold up the dress when walking-- it was fine on the dance floor). Two very minor complaints: the dress is sheer in some places, be careful what you wear underneath, and there is no boning or built-in structure. Regardless, I really did not want to send this dress back! The colors are gorgeous and it was so fun to wear.

LOVE
I wore this dress to attend a stakes race at Belmont while on vacation in NYC. I wanted something that would be put together but also easy to wear for our ride out of Manhattan to the track- this dress was perfect and I received many compliments. I was able to wear my go-to strapless bra and a pair of spanks to keep everything smooth. I highly recommend renting this dress.

Perfect dress to hide the bump
I wore this dress at the beginning of my 5th month of pregnancy. It was perfect. I got compliments all night. It hugged all the right areas and hid the sections I wanted to hide.

such a fun dress!

Great pattern!
It would have been nice to have a more fitted bust but the width and size of the dress was perfect. An elastic band held the dress up but it still was a bit long for my 5'4" petite frame and I had to hold one side up to prevent the bottom from dragging, when wearing flats. So heels are the way to go with this dress if you're short! :)

Beautiful dress, just in between sizes.
Medium fit great up top but was tight in mid section/thighs. Large was too big on too. Beautiful dress, bold pattern is perfect for weekend getaway or beach vacation. Sad it didn't work out!

Beautiful dress with vibrant colors
Loved the dress and colors BUT the top of the both dresses were SUPER stretched out! The medium fit better but was too loose in the breast area so I wore the large. The dress, even in a regular length, was still too long. I had knee surgery last month and couldn't wear heels so I wore sandals.

Special rehearsal dinner
The fit was excellent. the long was a little too long I felt like I had to keep lifting it all night so it wouldn't get ruined! Other than that the dress was perfect. Being 4 months pregnant it allowed for a little bump to show and still look classy.

I ordered the 4 and the 6, and unfortunately, the 4 had makeup stains.
I would like to have worn the size 4, but I had to wear the 6 which was slightly too big for me. Rent the Runway refunded me a slight amount because of the stains on both the front and back of the 4. I am 5'9 and wore 3 inch heels and the 6 was still extremely long. I spent most of the night holding the dress up.

Amazing dress
This dress is comfortable and flattering! I suggest wearing with a belt and sizing down for backup because it is not fitted. I wore this to a Florida wedding and wore it straight from the airport to the party and had people stop me in the airport to compliment me on it. Would definitely recommend it!

Super fun, the kind of dress that is perfect as a rental because of the unique pattern.
I rented this dress for an Indian/Hindu wedding where most of the women were in saris. It was perfect, and I fit right in! This dress is why RTR is so great -- typically this would be too bold of a print to get away with wearing more than once a year. The top is held up by an elastic band. It was secure, but without the bold pattern it might have looked a little obvious or casual. This dress is very long. I'm a tall gal, and this came exactly to the floor in a perfect column. Any longer would have been no bueno. I wore flats easy to dance in for the wedding, and I'm not sure anyone ever saw them (a good thing!). I probably could've gotten away without wearing spanx with this dress, but felt much more comfortable with those smoothing powers, as the synthetic fiber of this dress does lend itself to showing every bump and dimple, but the bold pattern does offer some camouflauge. I also rented the necklace pictured with it -- it really makes the dress! I highly recommend doing both, as the necklace creates more of a "neckline" where the straight-across elastic might have looked a little too casual for the wedding.

Love the pattern!
I loved the fit and comfortable fabric on this dress. It looked just as pretty 'on' in person as in the pictures. The only thing is they really need a petite size in this. I'm 5'1 and in my 5" heels this dress in XS would still drag. I ended up wearing the SR just in case the XSR made my like arms and chest look fat later or something :P - otherwise both fit the same and are the same length. I wore this for my babyshower at 6+ months. It's definitely bump friendly and bump stylish! Would definitely recommend for "tall" pregnant ladies that want to get dressed up! We have so limited options :P I'm sure it would fit nicely and beautifully if you didn't sport a bump also!

Definitely makes a statement.
This was very much a tube - no shape whatsoever. So, I think it could be great on someone curvy, but for me, it didn't work. I'm a mix between being very straight and narrow, and athletic (I have broad shoulders and a wide frame in general, but I'm not very busty or hippy) so I just looked like a column. And while I'm a 34C, I didn't have enough of a bust to keep it up. Luckily, fashion tape saved the day! But I did get lots of compliments, mainly because it's quite loud and eye-catching. AND RUNS LONG!

So Comfortable!
Loved this dress! Wore it to a friends Mendhi, received tons of compliments. Very comfortable dress, fits just like the picture, if you are looking for a form fitting dress this isn't for you. Length is perfect, I was able to wear wedges and dress still grazed the floor. Would definitely recommend renting this dress.

Cute for trim girls
Sadly I have a pooka pouch and this dress too form fitting to be cute on someone like me . It a zip up with elastic band top maxi dress . Which to me means a great secure fit on top for even larger chest girls. The dress is perfect for BBQ / backyard event like a birthday party . It is very casual looking - to me . So overall it is a cute casual dress, that would look fantastic on someone that is trim / fit . It's not super tight , my post baby body will have to wait until I lose some more tummy area :)

Bummer
The dress is gorgeous on the model and other RTR pics, but it did not fit my body. Several reviews said the dress ran big, but I found the opposite. It really does need a belt or something to give it more shape. Disappointed I wasn't able to wear this!

Definitely a little long. I wore flats and it was about 2-3 inches too long. Usually maxi dresses are long on me but this way definitely longer! Very cute dress and fit well. Got a lot of compliments. Wore with the necklace in the picture.

Amazing dress worn for my baby shower!
I loved this dress and wore it when I was 7 months pregnant to my baby shower! I rented both the Medium and Large (wasn't sure how big I would be at 7mos) and the Medium was perfect. It clings to your body in the right places. As other reviews have said, it is long but I have long legs and with 4 inch platform wedges, it was perfect.. I didn't need to tape it up and was not tripping over it at all. I would add that the top band at the bust was a bit tight when zipped all the way, but not an issue overall.

Unfortunately, this just wasn't what I was expecting. The fabric is a stretchy/jersey/crepe and just did not look right on me at all. Was hoping to wear for my boyfriend's dad's 60th birthday party. Sad that it didn't work out.

I rented this for the fun of it and wore it to work on casual Friday. It's super comfortable, but built for tall girls only. I'm 5'3" and wore my highest heels, and it still was too long. But I enjoyed it and I'm glad I had fun with it. The colors are gorgeous!

My FAVORITE RTR dress rental.
This dress is everything. I was expecting this dress to be a bit long for my height but once I paired it with some wedges it was a good length. I think I like the design and colors the most about this dress, which makes me want to rent it a few more times. The slit in the back wasn't too much and I received numerous comments on this dress. I would recommend renting this dress for many occasions.

Fun dress, perfect for a summer wedding!
Loved the color and pattern of this dress. The elastic at the top was super tight, so I didn't spend all night hiking the dress back up where it belonged. My only complaint, and the reason I gave this dress 4 stars is it is pretty shapeless. The waist and mid-section were so large, that I don't think even a belt could have given me the silhouette I normally prefer. The good thing about that is if you're planning on indulging, you don't have to worry about your "food baby" showing! The dress is very long, I am about 5'5 and I think I would have needed 3" or 4" heels to keep the dress from dragging on the ground. But all in all, a really comfy, fun dress prefect for a summer wedding!

Beautiful dress
I usually wear a size10. Tried the MR and LR. LR was too loose in the bust and a little tight in the rear. I have an athletic shape but it was not flattering. MR looked more shapely but it did not feel comfortable wearing it out, with or without Spanx. It was a beautiful dress but just not for my body type. If I owned it, I would have to have alterations.

Compliments everywhere I went!
This dress is insanely gorgeous. I got compliments on it everywhere I went! Heads up - the dress is quite long.. even for me. I found myself having to pick it up to keep it from dragging on the ground. I wore a necklace similar to the one in the photo, and it was all the accessory I needed! Very lightweight - it worked well for an AZ wedding :) Love love love - would've given it 5 stars but the length was a small issue during the night.

A dress that made heads turn!
This dress was perfect for a wedding brunch in France! It was long enough for me (5'9) without heels and it looked fabulous! I wore my own elastic belt to accentuate the waist that was a little loose- but it was a beautiful dress on its own. I loved the surprise of yellow at the bottom, and the lime green at the waist! It was too cold to wear on its own so I had to pair with a jean jacket, which was perfect.

Liked the look of the dress, but when i saw the fit, I couldnt make either size work.
Overall the dress fit a little weird. The small was fine in the bust, but there was some awkward bagginess in the stomach area. The XS was fine in length, but then too small in the bust and still baggy in the stomach.
