Pretty bright pink and very comfortable
Wore to Easter dinner. Very comfortable. Runs a little on the big side. Great to wear a regular bra and not worry about shape wear.

Beautiful for Derby Day!
I loved this dress!!!! I can't tell you for sure if it is a deep dark pink or a paler deep red, if that makes sense. I lean toward the red. I was concerned that this dress would be uncomfortable, the lace scratchy, but it was very soft. The neck is wide , but there are handy straps to hold your bra. I suggest wearing with heels, as the W size dress would look fuddy duddy with flats. I'd rent again!

Not flattering for Apple type body
I had pick this dress and another for an outdoor wedding. I ended up going with my other choice. If you are full busted with a skinny waist this might be flattering on you. I have more of an apple shape and this did nothing for my figure. Positive note it's very light and airy for summer events!

Great dress
I actually didn't even pick this dress out. The one I had rented ended up not being available at the last minute, so RTR picked a similar style/color for me, and sent this one. It ended up working out perfectly. I am more of a standard size 14, so the 14W was a bit roomy for me, but that's better than too tight! I got tons of compliments on the dress- the color is awesome. Unfortunately I got tea spilled down my back, but because of the texture of the lace, and the color, no one even noticed. Thankfully with the insurance, I didn't have to worry! Great overall experience.

Bright color! Beautiful detail
Love the color of the dress! Over fit was pretty good! This does run big, I'm usually a 16, 14 depending... But this dress was so big I could have used the 12! It worked for my event, and it was super comfortable and felt great on! Overall 4/5 stars!!

Really nice dress
Rented this for my son's first communion. My first choice wasn't available. This was sent as a back up dress. Love it! The color was perfect for spring. And the bands of fabric in the lace made it less formal. It was super comfortable. And, I was able to wear a regular bra.

Birthday Dress!!
This dress was true to size and a really flattering. I wore it to a Christening which also happened to be on my Birthday!! I deducted one star only because the lace looked just a teensy weensy tired, but I wasn't sure if that was the pattern or from wash/use. I got a lot of compliments on the color which in person looks bright red-pink. Wear a size 18 pants but 16w worked just fine for me.

Beautiful color and lace!
Wore this for a day celebration of my birthday. Received tons of compliments on the color. The fit was true to size, a bit loose in the mid waist area, but still looked great. This is good for a day event or a night affair - probably perfect for something outdoors. It is a tea length dress - fell mod calf so I would definitely wear heels so it doesn't look frumpy.

Beauty + Comfort = Perfect Dress
I received so many compliments while wearing this amazing red dress! I wore it to the gala for a conference I was attending for work. This was actually the 2nd choice dress when I ordered, and it turned out to be the perfect dress for me. The flattering fit worked well on my full bust as well as disguising my tummy that isn't so flat. I would definitely rent this dress again!

Beautiful dress for a bridal shower!
I rented this as a back up for my cousins shower. I vary in size from a 10-14 and thought I'd give the plus size a try. It was definitely large but so gorgeous I had to wear it. The fabric is amazing and it was super comfortable.

The dress didn't fit well at all!
the bust in my size was extremely stretched out and it hung on me - I'm a 36 D! It was quite a bit longer than I thought it would be, also.

Beautiful dress, but turned out to be too fancy for the party I wanted to wear it to.
This dress runs slightly large. I normally wear a 14 or 16. This 14 felt large. It was a beautiful dress but would be more appropriate to a wedding. It looked like bridesmaid dress to me. I originally wanted to wear it to a cocktail party but decided it was too fancy for that affair.

Beautiful, Flattering, and Fun
I loved this dress. It was very flattering, and I felt comfortable all night long. I'm 6'1", and it was the perfect length for me. It was a little big in the bust, but just a little.

I did not wear the dress.
I did not wear the dress because of a combination if being just a little too big and deciding I would be comfortable in something more casual. The dress was a lovely color and flattering design. I wiil definitely try renting again from RTR for a future event.

Plus sizes run REALLY large
I wear a 14 or 16 normally, but the last time I rented a dress, both sizes were too small. So I opted for a plus-size dress. Turns out these run REALLY big. Both the 14 and the 16 were too large. Also, the lace on the collar of this dress didn't lie flat, and looks sort of messy.

Great wedding!
The dress was cute! I loved the color. It was a little longer than I would have liked went over my knees a little. I probably could have gone down a size but it worked just fine. Very comfortable!

It was a great dress. Comfortable and a great color for a Valentine's date!
I was nervous when I got it because the paint on the zipper was chipped and it just seemed a little worn. But once I put it on, I absolutely loved it. Got compliments on it all night! The picture wasn't in great light, but it is a red/pink color. Could wear a normal bra, and looked great with a pair of nude heels. The 18W was a little large so I ended up going with my back up 16W.

Wonderful warm wedding in Rhode Island!
I love, love love this dress. It was the perfect coral color and really gave me some shape. It was a little larger than expected, so I put a small gold belt around the center just to tighten it up a bit. I did end up wearing a black cardigan (I am always cold) and it still looked great! Unfortunately I did not take any full-body pictures of the dress, but I have this small one that better shows the color in sunlight!

Comfortable, pretty color, and flattering cut!
I wore this dress to a daytime wedding and reception. It was extremely comfortable and easy to wear. I thought the fit was flattering. I wore the 18, and while it did indeed run a little big, it allowed me to go without shape wear and gave me extra room for dancing. The entire process was very efficient and I really like this service - I'll be back for more.

Nice color but runs a little large.
I normally wear a 14 regular and this 14W was a little too big. I put a cardigan over it and it was fine. The color is really pretty and I like the shear hem. Overall nice dress.

It was surprisingly lightweight which was nice for a summer wedding. I loved the color and wore it with a RTR necklace. Received many compliments. Ordered the 14 and 16 (normally 16), but wore the 14. I loved that I could wear a regular bra!

This was my first experience with Rent the Runway and I will definitely do it again!
Definitely runs a little large -- especially around the waist. It was fine, but wish it was a little more fitted around the waist for more definition. Wish it came in a 12 or 14R. That said, I received many compliments about the dress.

Stylist review
Beautiful red lace dress. Running large I would recommend your true size along with a size down for the backup. This dress is great for any cup size and body type. The fuller skirt allows comfortable room for full hips. This dress can also be worn with a standard bra. I would air this with nude heels drop earrings.

Fabulous! This dress not only looked AMAZING it was so comfortable! I received so many compliments!
I ordered a 16 and I admit I was a little nervous if it would fit. The 16 fit fabulously! It came in a little bit at the waist to give me shape and was so amazingly comfortable. I felt great the whole night! I was able to dance, sit and party comfortably while looking amazing. I received so many compliments too! This was my first rental and I would do it again for sure and maybe even for the same dress! I loved it! If you are thinking of renting it do it! You will not regret it at all!

Stunning dress!
This dress fit perfectly. I would say it may run a bit large. I usually wear a 12-14, but because it was a 14W, I think it ran larger. The color is really bright. Online I couldn't tell it was red, but in person, it is just a stunning red color. The lace detail is beautiful. This dress felt really sturdy, especially being lace. The sleeves were a nice touch for those who don't like wearing strapless. I was not crazy about the length, I am 5'5" and it was past my knees, I would have liked it shorter. I received so many compliments for the color and the style. I wore nude color heels, because I felt that was the best option. I would definitely order another dress by this designer!!! Such a great dress! You wouldn't be disappointed.

Gorgeous Color and Detailing
Really beautiful dress- the material and the color were gorgeous and really made you stand out. The dress is very frilly and dainty which was perfect for the wedding shower I was going to. It fit well,as with all Adrianna Papell dresses. I was a little concerned with snagging in the lace, but actually didn't have a huge problem with this. Would definitely recommend.
