Too frumpy
I received this dress when the ML Monique Lhuillier Alice Dress was returned damaged before my rental. The dress was way too big and ended up looking like a potato sack on me. The length didn't help either, it stopped halfway down my knee. The lace was very pretty and much brighter than it seems in the picture. I would definitely wear this more as a sundress than a cocktail dress. All in all it was a pretty dress but definitely runs way big

I agree, I was unable to wear and unable to return quickly. I received Friday evening for Sat wedding. It was waaaay too big. I did not notice the pleats around the neck because they had a necklace on the model. Looked awful.

LOVED the dress and got a ton of compliments on it. Much more royal blue in person than it appears.
Fit perfectly and was very figure flattering. Dress was also very comfortable!

Dress was super comfortable. Fit just right, not much stretch.
Was afraid the dress would be too long since I'm not as tall as the models. But it hit just at the knee. The color is much more of a royal blue than shown in the photos. Got tons of compliments on the dress all night! Would definitely consider renting again.

I went to one of the showrooms and tried on many styles... Very helpful!
The neckline is a bit too covered up for my 36DD's.. Otherwise beautiful and comfy fit! Great color!

Cuter than I was expecting!
I actually received this dress as a substitute when the dress I had ordered was damaged by the previous renter. I wasn't excited, as it had a very different silhouette from the dress I had initially ordered. I ended up really liking it, however! The color in person is actually a very pretty royal blue, rather than the periwinkle it looks like in the photo. It was a little big on me, but it still looked pretty cute. I ended up styling it much differently than RTR recommended. Rather than glitzy diamonds, I thought it looked best with funkier accessories. It's fairly conservative, so colorful accessories help make it appear more youthful. I wore it with orange suede wedges and a white statement necklace, and I received lots of compliments!

Tons of compliments, looked fantastic, I felt very posh and put together. Vibrant on-trend color.
The top was modest but not too matronly and the bottom wasn't tight on my hips at all which is frequently an issue. Loved it.

The convenience of borrowing two complete outfits for an east coast wedding was incredible!
This dress was lovely. Fit well. High quality and great condition. It's a beautiful royal blue lace with nude slip underneath. Very classy and a little daring. I received several compliments and felt great! I paired with a cocktail ring, crystal earrings and antique crystal bracelet all from RTR. Fun to have a celeb stylist experience at a great price!!

Will rent again told everyone about it!!!! Love it
Was great fit and felt good in it especially having a bigger bust only down fall os the size 14 had some fuzzy balls at the bottom but that's probably from wear and tear and def not noticeable already working on what to wear next for wedding season and telling everyone about rent the runway great idea :)

Great dress. Fits true to size and a little darker than in the photo, but a very beautiful blue. I wore this to a retirement ceremony and party and received so many compliments that I felt beautiful! Would definitely rent again or even buy if given the chance!

Royal Blue Classic!
I enjoyed wearing this royal blue dress out to an engagement party. It feels very classic. And is more blue than the photos -- I almost didn't recognize it in the RtR Las Vegas Store! I enjoyed wearing this dress and would consider it again. This dress is a true Womens size. The lining has some stretch, so it is really easy to wear. It has bra hook thingies, but I didn't need them.

Even though I used the sizing chart, I wasn't able to wear this dress because it was too loose. Luckily a great stylist was able to get me a replacement dress just in time for my event!

My dress was very similar to the mother of the bride! Was very excited to see we had similar taste.
Fit was over all good. The top was a little big. But could not have used a smaller size for the waist. Got lots of complements on it!

Perfect daytime dress
I wore this dress for my law school graduation and the party afterwards. I loved the sleeves and the lace. I was a little concerned that the sleeves would be too tight because I have larger arms but it fit perfect. I agree with the other reviewers that the blue is more royal that in the picture but that made me like the dress more.

Royal Blue
I ordered both the 18W and 20W in this dress as it was my first time using Rent the Runway. I was going to a wedding out of town, so I had them shipped to my hotel. They arrived right on time with no issues. I tried the 18W first and it fit well. I have large upper arms and am very busty (36H), but luckily the dress fit very comfortably in those areas. The lace overlay came down to my knees while the nude lining stopped an inch or so short of them. There is a little satin trim around the waist of the dress, but the dress was a bit loose in the waist, so I wore a thin belt over it. The color is much, much deeper than the color on the model. It is actually a beautiful royal blue. I knew that from reading other reviews but I was still amazed at just how different it was when it came out of the bag. I think it's a much more striking and beautiful dress in person than it appears in the RtR picture. That said, and despite the ever-so-slightly risque look of the illusion lace, this dress is pretty modest. It needs the right styling to avoid looking matronly. I wore it to a wedding, so I wasn't looking for anything overtly sexy, but to give it a more youthful feel, I paired it with bright coral accessories and peeptoe slingbacks. I still looked ladylike, but not Church Lady-like. Bottom line: If the color in the picture is making you hesitate, ignore it. It's a great dress for any occasion where you want to look beautiful but somewhat covered up. Put some thought into your accessories, though-I dropped 1 star because I could see this veering into Queen Mum territory pretty easily.

Gorgeous blue color and lovely lace pattern
I wore this dress to a semi-formal wedding and received tons of compliments. The dress was comfortable to wear all evening and allowed for free movement. I normally wear 16W in Adrianna Papell but rented it in an 18W because I'm pregnant and just starting to get a little bump. The 18 was comfortable over the baby belly while still being the right proportions in the bust and shoulders.

Royal Blue Beauty
Great dress and I was pleasantly surprised that it was much more youthful than the picture. Also the dress is a true royal blue color, great quality and the nude lining went well with nude heels. I wore the dress to a derby party at the horse track, complete with a Fascinator that would make Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie proud.

Great dress - felt really comfortable!
I am really pear shaped, so I wasn't sure what size I would go with. The 18 fit much better throughout, but I ended up wearing the 20 to give me a little more room in the hips and arms. Although, I think if I wore this dress again I would go with the smaller size because it was a little baggy in the chest throughout the night. Overall awesome dress - got several compliments. I paired it with a mint and navy necklace from Rent the Runway and mint shoes.

Loved the color!!
Wore this dress to a bridal shower. I ordered this it in my size and one size smaller because the last Adrianna Papell dress I got was too big in my size. However, I guess they didn't have the 14W size and instead sent me a dress that was completely different and a more formal dress in the size 14 which I definitely did not need . Anyway-since I didn't have the smaller dress to try on I wore the 16W and again threw a belt on it to tighten and shorten so I don't look frumpy. Worked out fine and I liked it and got a few compliments. Order 1 size down with this designer for the looser dresses with more material.

I wish I had gone with a different dress...
It was nice enough I guess and a pretty color but looking at pictures from that day I really don't like it and looks a bit old lady-ish. I really wish I had found another dress.

Perfect for a summer wedding
I love the length of the sleeves. I don't like my big arms, so this made me feel more comfortable. The dress I pretty long, right above my knee on me, and I'm on the taller end at 5'8". I'm also 6 weeks pregnant and not feeling like myself. This gave me plenty of coverage, but still fit beautifully and made me feel pretty.

The dress was a little wide on me but that's because I usually wear a 14 (rather than 14W). The dress was very comfortable and easy to dance in.

Perfect Dress for a Perfect Night!
I've never received so many compliments on a dress before! This was my first time ever using RTR and now I will be using it for my functions. This dress was so comfortable and yet still elegant. I have a larger chest (40DD) and this fit so well. It was lightweight allowing me to move on the dance floor. I paired this with a RJ Graziano "Dress Me Up" necklace from RTR and it was just the right touch. I definitely would recommend this dress to any one looking for a summer wedding.

Better than I thought
True confessions -- I was NOT crazy about this dress when I tried it on. It's ribbon belt hit me at the widest portion of my gut, and I felt self-conscious in it. However, I was using it for the recital and I had nothing else to wear so I wore it. The pictures tell a different story. It looked classy, elegant, and just sophisticated enough without being overly showy. Nice choice for the recital and would be a nice choice for a day wedding.

Loved this dress! I felt amazing in it!
The dress ran relatively true to size, i found it to be slightly roomy (which was great for the cocktail hour and venetian hour!) It was a bit longer than i expected it to be but nothing dramatic. Overall amazing dress!

It was a beautiful outdoor wedding on the north shore of Long Island. I felt wonderful.
I'm only 5'2" and usually wear size 22 and my only fear was that the dress would be too long -- but it was perfect! Just to my knee. Everything fit like it was made for me! The bust was a tad roomy, but I preferred that to being too snug. The dress just draped over my tush and hips. I felt great and my sons ( in the photo with me) told me I looked great!

This dress made me feel so pretty!
I honestly did not want to return this dress after my event! It fit like a glove, and I feel like it looked amazing as well. I am EXTREMELY pear shaped, so anything that shows of my waist and doesn't fit too snugly around my hips is perfect. The dress was a little roomy in the bust, but it was very comfortable and allowed me to move around. The picture of the model did not do it justice, in my opinion. I think the color was way more blue and vibrant than pictured.

love the silhouette
Adriana Papell often runs large, so I got a 16W and a 14W. The 16 actually fit well, and I wouldn't have minded getting an 18W just to see if it were a little roomier. Really flattering, comfy dress. Has lots of coverage, the way plus sized women like, but also has a youthful silhouette and bright, happy colors. In other words: even though it's a plus sized, it's not the drapey, shapeless, neutral toned yawn that most plus sized clothing is. I recommend it.

My Mom felt like a Queen in the dress....how cute is she?!?
I rented this dress for my mom when we wee attending a friend's wedding. She felt so glamourous and the fit was great. She was so happy to get into the 14W, as she usually wears a 16 regular. It was roomy and comfortable for her. Can you believe she is 76?! She looked beautiful!!

It was the perfect dress for a summer cocktail wedding. I got so many compliments about the color, the style. The best comment came from my 22 month old son, who said "preeeettty" when I walked into the room with it on. Rent the Runway ROCKS! This was the best solution for a wedding. I have recommended this fab site to all my family and friends.
