Perfect for a wedding!

I rented this dress for my nieces wedding and it fit great. It felt a little snug when I first put it on, but my husband said it looked perfect, so I didn't even try on the bigger size. After wearing it for a while it felt great, and I was glad I stuck with the 14W.

So many compliments on this elegant dress. I wore it for a fundraiser and it was lovely.

Perfect fit. Could have gone smaller but the bigger size provided extra comfort. Loved it.

The dress is absolutely gorgeous!

I wore this dress to a preppy wedding at The Boston College Club, which is on the 36th floor of a sky rise overlooking the city and out to Cape Cod & other small islands off the coast of Boston, needless to say it was a classy wedding. The dress was absolutely gorgeous, the lace overlay is very intricate and quite detailed. I would definitely rent the dress again, however, I would definitely go up a size. All the dresses I've ordered from RTR have been Badgley Mishka and this designer runs completely different, I'm normally a 14 in BM and this dress was a 16w and it felt like I was going to bust out of it at multiple points, especially when I was dancing the night away. Even though it was extremely tight and quite uncomfortable at times, I received multiple compliments throughout the night from other guests as well as the bride.

Great dress for a wedding!

Great dress for a wedding! The straps on the inside were a little loose so you could see my bra in the back. I ended up using a safety pin to adjust them and then the dress for better! Felt sexy and confident in the dress! Also had great customer service help with an issue I had with one of the dresses. They acted very quickly and professionally to help resolve my issue?! So glad my first RTR experience was good!

Great dress that was definitely worth renting. Heavy material that hung just right. Not clingy at all, which I loved. Got many complements on it. Definitely renting from RTR again!!

Comfortable but not very flattering for curves

This dress was comfortable and the fabric was gorgeous, but it wore in a way that showed every one of my bumps.

Loved the lace

I liked that it wasn't too short and that I could wear a bra underneath. It felt a bit loose in the armholes.

Nice dress but not for pear ladies

Since it was a sheath dress it was really tight thru the thighs for my pear shape. When I sized up the top was way too big. If I wore spanx it would have helped but I forgot them on my travel... Beautiful dress but not great for pear shaped ladies.

RTR made me happy.

I wore this dress for my nephew's wedding, and I could not have made a better choice. My size is a regular 16, but that size was unavailable so I decided to try size 14W and it was perfect. I got countless complements. I wear a size 40C bra.

Beautiful lacework. Very comfortable

Beautiful dress. Very flattering. I was able to wear a nude bra with it and no one could see the straps through the intricate lace overlay. Would definitely rent again

Comfortable but lovely

I wore this to a formal event, dressing it up a bit with gold accessories and some jewelry. You could easily dress it up or down to fit your event. The fit was a little straight up and down for me - didn't fit an hourglass shape. I added a belt to take up the slack a bit and while I felt like there was a bunch of extra fabric, I don't think it was noticeable. Another plus is the thick fabric backing the lace - very forgiving and the contrasting color to the lace added some extra interest. I typically wear a 12/14 on top, a 14/16 on bottom, or a 14/16 in dresses. This dress definitely had some extra room but other than the waist being large, nothing else felt awkwardly sized and nothing gapped.

Great navy dress for a summer wedding!

This was a last minute replacement dress that was sent to me for an bridesmaid dress. It was a really nice dress, and I got a lot of compliments on it. It was well lined and I could get away with not wearing a bra because of that and the lace is really thick. I got an 18W and the 20W, and both fit with no problem. I ended up wearing the 20W because it had more room in the tummy, and I wanted to feel comfortable. It was a little big in the bust, though. A strapless bra probably would have taken up the room but I didn't have one. The only reason I didn't end up giving it 5 stars is it had a large rip, about 4-5 inches long, in top layer on the side seam. Luckily I was able to stitch it up myself.

Compliments galore!!!!

I absolutely loved this dress! It was perfect for the formal wedding I attended. The fit was great to, flattering to my shape. I'm 5'5" so the dress hit me right above the knee. This was my first experience with RTR and I was very pleased with it.

Perfect dress

The dress fit perfect. I went with the 16W because the 14W was a little short if I bent over, but they both fit fine. Some of the lace was pulled a little but nothing noticeable. Its a little heavy but not too hot and easy to move, dance, and jump around in. It was perfect for my brothers wedding.

Pretty dress

Rented this for the 4th wedding this year! The dress is very pretty. The color is beautiful. It was a little tight in the bust area but hid the midsection nicely. It really should be worn with a strapless bra which is uncomfortable if large chested. Would recommend for a formal occasion.

Lovely dress.

Great dress. I rented this for a fall wedding. It was perfect. I read the reviews about sizing and needed to order a size up for my bust. No need for a bra though as the top fits right across and keeps things in place. I was worried about it fitting too tight and showing my rolls but the lace overlay hid all this nasty flaws in the middle. Would def rent this dress again and maybe even consider purchasing it.

wearing this great dress that was super comfortable!

This was the back up dress when the Carmen Marc Valvo dress didn't fit. It was a very comfortable dress to wear and I got a lot of compliments on it, however it was a little wide at the bust line (as I am a 36B), and a little wide in the waist, but not enough to look like a true sack on me. A belt might have helped, but I didn't want to detract from the prettiness of the dress. I would definitely order this dress if they had it in a regular 14, but for being a last minute selection when the first dress didn't fit I was very happy with it. So close to being a 4 star dress!

The dress runs large . Glad I got two sizes to try on. It was heavy but I was not hot wearing it which I was afraid would happen since it was for an outside summer wedding.

Beautiful dress that was too big for me in waist and hips.

Dress was lovely, but too boxy and big through waist and hips. In all fair was I have a hard time with designer sizes. A 12 is WAY too tight throughs the chest, and a regular 14 typically gives me the same problem. This 14W fit great through the bust but was sloppy the rest of the way down. Oh the trials and tribulations of the busty... Not quite a regular size, not quite a plus size...

I wore this to a concert on a date night and it was fun and comfortable!

The dress was a little large all over but was comfortable in the bust which is always tough for me to fit. The lace is lovely and thick and laid nicely when I was sitting down. The color is a dark navy and very rich looking. I felt very pretty in it!

pretty dress

this was my second choice dress, as my original did not fit. i was extremely pleased with how easy it was to get another dress sent out in time for my event. this dress was very beautiful, but it was slightly too big for me. i think i could have used a regular 14 or 16. after getting a 14 in my first choice and it being a tad too small i was nervous and went larger. the dress is very pretty, i just wish i had gotten a smaller size. i loved this experience and will definitely be using rent the runway again :)

Beautiful but worn dress

Heavy fabric, got hot easily. The lace looked very tired - obvious that it had been more one too many times. The 14W is definitely meant for someone with wide hips, I only rented since a 14R was available - not a good idea, probably could have worn the 12R and would have been fine.

Very comfortable and flattering! I received lots of compliments! Great quality.

Excellent quality! The lace is nice and heavy and there is 2 linings in the dress. Very comfortable. I measured myself and ordered a size based on the chart. When I received the dress I found the it to be big; especially under the arms/bust area which is unusual for me because I have a large bust. Would absolutely recommend, but go a size down from the chart.

Cute dress

I did not end up wearing this to the wedding, but it was a cute dress that had good coverage up top, so was appropriate for a church wedding. As others have mentioned, the W sizing just didn't work for me. It was too big allover, despite the fact that I usually wear a regular 14.

This dress was perfect for my event and I received a lot of compliments. I really loved this dress!

I originally ordered my normal size of 18W but it was so narrow that I could not get it on all. The 20W fit but was tight through the hips. The 22W fit great through the hips but I had to pin the straps on the under-layer to make it a bit tighter at the top. I was told this designer tends to be a little narrow in the hips.

Classic elegance!

This was a dress that RTR overnighted to me because I was sent the wrong size in my original order of another dress and my backup was too small. Loved the heavy lace on this dress! I would say it runs rather small (which I'm finding out with these designers on RTR). I'm usually a 14W. I went up to the 18W because the 16W was snug in the hips. Luckily, I had a belt that went went my shoes and the clutch a rented, that helped cinch in the waist a little. Remember to check the size charts! All of the brands vary drastically with their sizing, unfortunately.

It'sRented!May 11, 2014
Renting this next week - can you comment on the bra situation? Will I need strapless or will a navy blue bra work fine? Thank you!
