Great Color/Flattering Fit
I loved this dress! I wore it to a going-away party and received compliments all night. The blue is very vibrant and the fit is extremely flattering. Only issue was that the top runs a little large, so if you are pear shaped like me I would recommend going a size smaller. Would definitely recommend!

This dress was perfect!
I ordered this dress to wear to an awards dinner during my husband's company trip to Cabo. It was perfect! Light enough not be hot and the perfect amount of dressy. I got numerous compliments on it from the other ladies attending the dinner. The color was gorgeous! I wore it with nude sandels to really let the dress stand out.

Fun and comfortable
I wore this for my friend's rehearsal dinner. It was super comfortable and I got a ton of compliments. It did run big though. I am normally an 8, I wore the 6, and it was still pretty roomy. But I loved it. It was my first time trying rent the runway. And while the dress I rented for the actual wedding did not work out, this was great. Actually rented a Halston for a wedding I'm attending this weekend, and it's perfect! Love rent the runway :)

Flirty and fun, but not too revealing!
I wore this to a rehearsal dinner and loved it! It was a hot night, but the dress was very comfortable. Definitely a sexy look without being too short or revealing. I loved the color and the material. I would definitely consider renting this dress again for a fun night out! It runs large though, I wore a 0, even though normally I would be a 2.

Beautiful color and length was perfect. Not too short. Style was a little more casual, but super comfortable. Tons of compliments

I loved how flattering the dress was.
Got this for a friend's wedding and I LOVED IT. I found it be true to size. I usually wear a medium or size 10 in tops and an 8/10 in jeans. I ended up wearing the size 10 dress and it fit perfectly (however, I have a fuller bust so the top portion was a bit tight). It's really flattering and I'd, for sure, recommend it! I got many compliments.

Runs a little big...
Although it ran big it was easy to tie at the waist and make it work. It may be a little too long for shorter girls but it was fine on me.

Wearing a fabulous "new-to-me" dress at a fraction of the cost
I wore this dress to a mountain wedding in Estes Park, Colorado, in June--it was perfect! It was dressy enough without being too over-the-top for the mountains. I paired it with a light lime clutch and nude heels and wore my hair up to show off the neckline. I got lots of compliments! I rated that it ran true to size; a 4 would have worked up top, but would have been too snug through the hips, so keep that in mind if you're curvy. The sleeve and the skirt were both shorter on me than shown on the model.

Perfect for a summer evening event! Beautiful design and a flattering fit.
Loved this dress, wore it to an upscale wedding rehearsal & rehearsal dinner (wore long gown to actual wedding) and received lots of compliments! I'm normally around a 4 or a 6 but after reading the other reviews I ordered the 4 and the 2 - I'm so glad I did because I ended up wearing the 2 (which I was rather surprised about, so yes it definitely runs big!). Also, the other thing I hadn't expected was that the 4 and the 2 were actually different colors; the 2 was the brighter blue color in the photo but the 4 was a much darker navy - I was very happy that I fit into the 2 because I definitely preferred that color, doubt that the black heels I had brought would have gone with the darker blue. I also needed a silver purse to go with my bridesmaid dress and coincidentally happened to pick out (separately) the purse already pictured with the dress on the model, so it ended up working perfect for both nights.

Loved the dress & the renting process couldn't have been easier!
I loved this dress, It fit perfectly. The drawstring waste allowed me to tighten/loosen as much as I needed. I could not have been more happy with the entire renting process. My dress arrived on Friday and the wedding I attended was on Saturday. I got tons of compliments on the dress. I definitely recommend RTR and this dress to anyone!

Beautiful dress and fit was very true to size
This dress was really comfortable and fit true to size. I did choose to go with my back up dress and not wear this one cause it fit the occasion better. The tie in the waist made it easy to adjust to fit each body type. The material did seem to easily wrinkle so that was another reason I chose not to wear it to the wedding. The color is beautiful and the detail on the shoulder is very nice. I have longer legs and the dress was a perfect length. I definitely would consider renting this dress for another event.

Color popped in pictures, perfect length, great dress. Full through hips. Loved it!
This dress was great for an outdoor wedding. The color looked AWESOME in pictures. The length is nice -- just an inch or two above the knee (on 5' 7"). I am usually a solid 8 at the bottom, and the 6 fit fine, so there is definitely room in the hips if you are pear shaped. I'm smaller at the top and it fit well. I would elaborate and say that it ran true to size at the top and large at the bottom. Really great dress and I got lots of compliments! Could wear with nude or black shoes, and I paired it with turquoise Kendra Scott Danielle Earrings to bring out the light blue in the shoulder design. Really fun dress!

This dress was perfect for my 21st birthday. It wasn't too formal and everyone complemented me!
It was actually very loose; I normally wear an 8 and was EASILY able to wear a 6, and possibly could have gotten into a 4 if I wanted the skirt to be tight instead of comfortably roomy. I enjoyed the comfortable fit since I spent my night dancing, but if you want it for something more formal, I don't suggest it.

This dress was fabulous...I got so many compliments on it!
I wore this dress to my Goddaughter's first communion. We had a big party after it, so I needed something that would work for both. The second I walked down the stairs the compliments started and they haven't stopped since! I usually wear a 6 in dresses, but I wore the 4 comfortably. I could have worn the 6, but the less flowy fit of the 4 worked better for me that day. I didn't want to have to worry about readjusting! The color is gorgeous and the material is comfortable. Not much more you could ask for!

I got to look cute for my husband's 30th birthday weekend
It was a really cute dress. I ordered a 4 and a 6 and the 4 fit better. Unfortunately, the 4 had some sort of barely noticeable sparkly stain on it. It was almost like someone had spilled nail polish or a makeup on it and it had been cleaned, but you could still see it in the right light.

I rented this dress for a birthday party and felt great all night. It does run large. The 4 was WAY too big but luckily the 2 was just right.

Extremely comfortable, great color, and easy to dance in!
I am 5'5, 140lbs and wore a size 6. I liked that it was a bit looser, but if you want something fitted, I would order the second free size and go a size down. I would have liked it to be a couple inches shorter (almost came down to my knee) but with a high pair of heels, you can easily elongate your legs. Dress can also be dressed up or down easily depending on accessories. Experience with RTR was AWESOME! Just rented a few dresses for Vegas.

Pretty Dress. But hugged in the wrong places.
I ordered this dress in a size 8 and 10. I have a pear shaped body, a very small waist & BIG hips. The size 8 fit nice on the top but was a little snug on by hips and the size 10 dress i was swimming in. I wound up not wearing the dress.

Didn't like the synch at the waist. Wasn't a flattering dress
I tried on the dress once as it was my backup but it wasn't flattering around the waist. I think it's better suited for taller skinnier girls.

Love this dress!!!
I've rented this dress twice. It's a beautiful, stand out color but not too dressy. It was perfect for birthday bar hopping. I usually wear a size 6 or 8 and I wore a size 2 in this the second time around. If you are busty it might fit more true to size.

Gorgeous - wish I had gotten the chance to wear it!
I rented this dress for a party which turned out to be super casual. The dress is a gorgeous blue color and fits well. The dress does run large, so I would size down if ordering again. I will definitely be renting this dress again this spring/summer due to the amazing fit and color. So flattering!

This was the most beautiful color dress I've ever worn!!! The detail on the shoulder is gorgeous too
This was a beautiful dress, the color was gorgeous. The waist line hit a little weird on me, so I felt like it wasn't as flattering as I would have liked. My boyfriend loved it though, and said I was silly to not feel sexy in it :)

I don't have a full body pic; i just took this one to document my lipstick color :)
I am usually a size 6, but that was quite big and the 4 fit perfectly. I wore it to dinner and to a nice latin club for salsa dancing and got compliments on it (from both guys and girls). The color is really rich and vibrant, it really stands out in a good way. It is a casual dress in that it's not super form fitting but the color makes it more formal somehow. It is very comfortable and worked well for dancing and I felt relaxed and pretty in it.

The pretty dress, awesome earrings, and the ease of the process! Totally stress-free!
I loved wearing this dress to an evening wedding this weekend! The color is so vibrant and the dress is very comfortable! It looked great with the Kate Spade chandelier earrings that were my Mystery Bling :) I felt like a million bucks! I was worried at first that it wouldn't be formal enough for the event, but the color and fabric is super classy. Great first experience!

perfect for dancing
I danced all night in this dress, ate a ton of food and it remained soooo comfortable. It's lightweight and fun! The color is actually very beautiful too, I don't think the website does it justice. I think it ran a little big for me. A little longer than I would've wanted and a little big in the top. Overall, i really enjoyed it. I would recommend renting it!

Not only felt beautiful wearing this dress, but had so much fun celebrating with my favorite girls in NYC! Receiving so many complements on your "last night out" makes you feel the the beautiful bride you've always wanted to be.
I absolutely love this dress! Everyone's reviews about this dress being on the slightly roomier side is right. I usually wear an 8, but wound up wearing the back-up size 6. It fit perfect and I felt beautiful!

Nice dress
I liked this dress but it didn't fit me perfectly. I ordered the size 2 and 4 and even though you'd think the larger size would be better, it was too loose in the waist. So I wore the size 2. It was a little more snug in the hips than I thought it would be which changed the way it looked. But I would recommend it for girls without as curvy of hips. :) Other than that, the embroidery was beautiful.

Beautiful Embroidery
I probably should have gone down a size, like the reviews say--but my normal size worked fine. Fitting note: I've got a lot on top but small booty. On me, the dress looked fine. But on my friend with less up top and a lot booty, this dress looked AMAZING!

The Trina Turk dress is the blue one! It went from a party to ladies hat day at the horse races and it worked in both situations.
I love this dress! It is really comfortable and turns heads. On that note, the material wrinkles fairly easily and both sizes came wrinkled. Be prepared to iron or steam the dress before you wear it.
