Wore this for my son's wedding. Received so many compliments!
I'm usually a 20 - 22, and the 20 fit very well. Very comfortable. I danced all night with no constraints. Slight pull/pilling on the bosom but I think I was the only one who could see it. It was full and fancy and definitely eye-catching. I forgot to pack a slip but it wasn't needed - the dress flares out so no problems with that. By the end of the night I didn't want to take it off because it felt so magical. This was my first time using Rent the Runway and the whole process was so easy. I won't hesitate to use it again!

I don't think I've ever gotten this many compliments on a dress before. Loved it!
Fit was good. I have a fat back and it zipped up fine. I'm a 38C bra and had a little extra room in the bust. length was nice. love the pockets. the dress did show a little wear - some loose threads.

Beautiful colors and high quality fabric
I loved this dress! I wish I had sized down one. It was large in the straps and bust and as a very busty girl, I usually have the opposite problem, including with this particular designer. I got a ton of compliments on the dress but I would have been more comfortable had it been slightly more fitted. Being a little big also made it just slightly longer than I prefer but overall I loved the dress. High quality thick fabric and amazing color.

got a lot of compliments
I received a lot of compliments while wearing this dress! It was a very bright color that drew the eye but very festive for a wedding. The picture look knee length but this was definitely a mid calf tea-length on me at 5'4". Still very flattering tough and it made it seem even more dressy. I probably would have been best off with a 14W or a straight size 16 as this dress was a touch large on me. However as I was running around for over twelve hours helping coordinate and decorate for a friend's wedding on top of the festivities themselves this was more than okay with me to have a looser fit. Lots of people said that it was a thick fabric and not ideal for the heat but I found it to be quite fine in 90 degree outside.

Color is slightly different and runs large
This dress runs large and the color is more red than pink. It also was tea length rather than knee length on my petite frame.

This dress made me feel very comfortable at the bougie brunch spot my boyfriend took me to.
Fair warning, this dress has zero stretch. It was very tight (had puckering at the seams) in the bust and across my rib cage. The lining smoothed out the shape of the dress and the length was just right (hit at mid-calf for me).

STYLIST REVIEW
This dress was a little snug, I think mostly because I have such a large chest. If I had C's or even D's I'm sure the 18 would have fit perfectly. But because I have G's I sized up to the 20. The length and coverage was exactly what I wanted for the conservative religious event I attended. I paired it with a matching Magenta cardigan and turquoise pumps and turquoise Kate Spade Studs. I received endless compliments. My husband adored it. Its one of my top 5 favorite rentals.

So flattering!
I loved this dress! It was so flattering and comfortable. It was tea length on me. The dress design allows you to wear a regular bra which was great! I would highly recommend it!

Gorgeous Colors!
I love this dress so much! It is so flattering on any body type. I wore it to a spring wedding & got tons of compliments on the uniqueness. Like most reviews say, it is definitely longer than it looks in the picture. I'm 5'5 and it came to mid calf. Any dress with pockets is a win in my book!!

Wore the 16W to a wedding. The fit was great and the dress was very comfortable. It has pockets! I received many many compliments on the dress and I felt like a million bucks! I wear a 40D bra and the bust was comfortable.

Perfect for a fall wedding in the Midwest!
This has to be one of my favorite dresses ever rented! I absolutely loved the length on this dress especially being paired the high neck build of the dress. This is dress is made to create your perfect party boomerrang. I usually wear a 14, but I wore the 16 in this dress so I had a little room to dance and eat. The only part that was tight in the 14 was the chest, which is not surprising to me because I've always had big chest problems. I will definitely rent this again, it's by far my favorite rental! I wore it with a simple dangling earrings, one gold bangle, nude pumps and a blush kate spade clutch.

Event was great.
This was my backup dress, so didn't end up wearing it. The fit was great, even for a larger bust. I have a 42DD, and I was comfortable. Plus.....pockets! Love it.

Great color and pattern!
Great color! Like the length below the knee as I am tall. It runs large and I could have done with a smaller size so it hung on me a bit. Got lots of compliments. V in back and way sides tapped a little makes regular bra tricky.

EVERY person at the party complimented the dress, the cut, color and overall look. I loved it.
The cut was perfect for my shape (pear) and I felt fantastic in it! I would pair it with gold not silver jewelry and definitely a fun strappy sandal!

Beautiful dress, loved the color and pattern
I'm conflicted on how many stars to give the dress. On the one hand it was gorgeous, fit perfectly and looked just like I hoped it would. On the other hand there was some wear and tear that was visible on the bust (frayed threads) so it looked a little more used than I expected. Five stars for looks, 3 stars for wear and tear = 4 stars overall.

I was planning on wearing this dress to a wedding.
I ended up having to return the dress. I have worn several dresses by this designer with this size, and this dress was much tighter in the bust. I am a 38G, so I understand that is larger than normal, however I have worn other dresses by this designer with no issues. It was a pretty dress, just didn't work out. It wasn't available in the size up or down, so I only got one size.

Super pretty with POCKETS!
This was my backup dress, and ended up wearing it. It was super cute and comfortable. I got complements from strangers, was able to move freely without having to worry about my dress. I've recently gained weight, so am self conscious as well as not wanting to invest in this new size. This was the perfect alternative. It was really perfect for a long day looking great!

Magical dress!
Ordered this dress for a charity benefit I was hosting. The dress matched our event decor. The dress made me feel confident and beautiful despite recent struggles with my weight. SO many people (many of them strangers) stopped to tell me how much they loved the dress. The dress felt almost magical.

First Event as Officer's Wife
I wore this to my first formal event as a military officer's wife and it was perfect. I felt ladylike in the longer dress, but still fun and colorful. The bust was plenty roomy and the arm holes were comfortable without showing bra. The dress was lightweight and got many compliments. I would definitely consider renting this again.

Good luck dress, I caught the bouquet!
I had a great time in this dress at my friend's late August wedding. There was a LOT of thick fabric though, so be warned that its a hot dress. The fit was great but the dress was slightly on the warn side (but I think this was because of the stitching of the fabric). I will definitely rent an Adriana Papell dress again in the future! Comfortable and I felt confident! Plus, who doesn't love a dress with pockets?!

Bridal Shower Perfection!
Cute as can be! I wore this for my bridal shower this past weekend and it was perfect. The boat neckline gave it an Audrey Hepburn feel to it and it was a thick sturdy material. There were a few pulls in the fabric from previous wear, but it wasn't noticeable. IT HAS POCSKETS TOO! I ended up wearing the 14W so it was more fitted in the bust and waist and the length was perfect, since I don't like showing my legs above the knee. I'm pear shape and it gave me a lovely hourglass figure. I even stopped into Kroger to pick up a few things before the shower and I got tons of compliments from strangers! The color was absolutely stunning and if I had the money, I would buy this outright. It truly was the perfect addition to an already perfect bridal shower! LOVE IT!

This dress has unbelievable colors within the dress and pictures very nicely.
The fit was fantastic and hit all the right places. I really like th midi length and the perfect amount of poof on the dress for the hips. This particular dres has been loved on from other rent the runway users but it was beautiful and was perfect for my needs.

The perfect formal dress for a curvy girl!
I rented this for my engagement session! I wanted something a bit formal against the nature setting. It was perfect. It hugged my curves in the right spots and didn't make my massive boobs look bigger. I loved the pockets too! The length was a bit awkward on my 5.2" frame but heels helped and in the end wasn't a deal breaker. It was pretty thick material with layers in the skirt so it may be a bit warm to wear in the Summer. I loved it so much and would wear again and again!

Came with a few minor pulls on it but was beautiful
It was not available in my size 18, so I ordered a 20. Yes, it was too big lol. If they had an 18 it would have fit perfectly. With a few minor adjustments I was able to get out of the house without it looking too big. It's lovely, I mean lovely. Massive compliments from so many. It was also the first time I wore a dress with my arms exposed and I didn't really care cause I looked really pretty. It has a beautiful vintage feel--think Mad Man. The material is heavy, not for a typical hot summer day--my day was a literally feels like 103 degress according to the weatherman. BUTTTT just beautiful

Absolutely made my night
The fit on this dress is very comfortable and I didn't even need to wear the Spanx I bought, yet it still made a gorgeous silhouette! The fabric is quite heavy, so I wouldn't recommend wearing it to a daytime event in warm weather; in the evening cool it's just perfect. Goes fantastically with gold accessories.

It has pockets
It fit great. It has pockets and was long enough that I was comfortable when sitting. I normally wear size 18, but that was way too big. The 16 was perfect.
