Great Dress
It runs true to size and I wore my back up size which was a size bigger. The sleeves were a bit restrictive on the smaller size so I wore the bigger size and it was great. I was going to a wedding so I wanted to make sure I was able to dance. It was a great color and style

Perfect for a winter wedding to feel great and comfortable all at the same time.
I felt beautiful in this dress. Great fit (a little big especially in bust- but I have a smaller busy anyway). The lace was great and it looked phenomenal. I paired it with black tights and wedges for a winter wedding. The only issue I had was the lace getting caught on my clutch for the night, but you have to expect that can happen with lace anyway. Loved how this dress made me feel.

Perfect for my nephew's baptism!
This was a gorgeous dress, I was sad to return it. It fit beautifully and was a gorgeous color. It was really comfortable, too. The sleeves were appropriate for church and the cut out in the back kept it from feeling too constricting. The cut of the dress was perfect for me (I'm pear-shaped)- more fitted in the waist and enough flare at the hips to give me some breathing room. I'd definitely this rent again!

Very comfortable, good first experience
I rented this dress to wear to a family wedding. I ordered the 18 and 20, just in case. The 18 fit quite well, true to size. There were a couple of small snags on the lace overlay, but nothing terribly noticeable. The green color was off a little bit from what I had expected, but it still worked and it photographed well. I am approximately 5'6". The dress fell to the knee. It was comfortable to sit in and dance in.

Never got so many compliments on a dress!
I loved this dress. Everyone complimented the color. It was comfortable, lace wasn't scratchy, and the back was super sexy without being too revealing. Highly recommend!

LOVED!!!
Loved the dress. A little loose on the back wish I had gotten a smaller size as my back up instead of a bigger size. A lot of complements, I will definitely do RTR again.

Great color! Too big on top :(
LOVED the color of the lace, unfortunately the top was very big. I wore it all night, mostly just adjusting the top by pulling it up and back! Really so pretty, would own this in just a size smaller!

Great color and fun for a party.
Pros: Length was perfect for me (I am tall); armscye was not too tight - I could lift and move my arms to dance; this dress hangs a tad loose, but not in a bad way, no spanx needed for me in the 16W size; the color is fab and I received lots of complements. Advice: avoid big necklaces that may catch on the lace; wear a strapless bra (straps would show through the lace on the shoulders, if wearing a standard bra...)

Perfect dress for the wedding.
The dress fit well, was light weight and flattering. The color was gorgeous. I received lots of compliments. Just be careful with the lace because it catches on everything.

Too long and looks old lady like
The dress was a very pretty color. It was way too long and hit mid calf but wasn't flattering. The lace made the dress look like a grandmas curtain.

The color is beautiful but I felt like this one dated me a little bit.
This dress was my back up because the second size in my first choice dress wasn't available. I ended up going with the other dress because I liked it better. This was was really nice, but made me look 10 years older.

This dress is beautiful! The color is a lot brighter than in any of the pictures. Would rent again!
This runs true to size if not slightly big. Very comfortable - great length - fell just above the knee and I'm 5'11".

I received compliments all night about this dress! Gorgeous color and great dress for Fall!
Fit was great! Was able to wear a regular nude color bra with this dress because the lace hid it so well. Length was perfect! So comfortable.

Looks great on you. Can you tell me what color the dress is lined in? On the model it looks black.

Great color and detail
This dress was overnighted to me after my original dress did not fit, loved the color and detail of the dress. It was a little big (I usually wear a 10/12) but with a belt It worked.

Gorgeous dress to celebrate my 27th birthday in!
The fit is a bit bigger than the other 14W I have had from this same designer. I am wearing a 38DDD now and had no issues with the bust. The dress was a bit hard to zip up because of the seam in the back. (When you put it on, you'll understand) Got loads of complements on it. I would definitely rent this dress again! I loved it! Actually I loved this dress so much I rented it again for Halloween. I was Mrs. Peacock from Clue!

The color of this dress is absolutely GORGEOUS. It's very lady like.
I wore it to a Christening, so I didn't want the VAVAVOOM. I actually looked appropriate in church (I am well endowed so that's always a tough one for me, But the color was stunning, and made me standout, I was comfortable and pretty. I thought it was perfect for this event (it was a big christening with a big party) I wouldn't rent it for a wedding or event that you want that WOW factor, but for this event it was PERFECT. There was a bit of a smell to it, so this being my first RTR rental, I aired it out put on some perfume and overlooked it. I have some more events coming up so I hope its not a trend.

I wore this dress to my Bridal shower. AMAZING!!
This dress was amazing. The color and the fit were very flattering. I carry most of my weight in my belly and I have a harder time finding flattering dresses. I got a 16 after reading the reviews. Everyone stated that the dress ran big. So I went with a 16 and had an 18 as my back up, The dress was perfect!!! Highly recommend this dress. It can be dressed up or dressed down. I am so happy I went with this dress. I will be renting from this company again. I also highly recommend that you read the reviews of the dresses.

This dress was PERFECT
Could have used a size down, but it wasn't in stock. This dress was so comfy, looked fantastic and I got tons of compliments on it. Wore with nude heels and some funky jewelry. The event was my son's Bar Mitzvah.

It arrived early and was so easy to return!
This dress was beautiful! I received many complements at the wedding I attended. However it does run big even though I added a belt. I should have ordered a 14w as my backup.

This dress was a beautiful color and so comfortable!
The dress fits true to size. I usually have to size up in dresses due to my large bust size (38DDD in a Soma bra) but this dress fit like a glove! I'm 5'4 so the dress hit just below my knees. I rented the earrings the model is wearing in the photo as well. I have sensitive skin so don't normally wear earrings but I forgot I even had them in they were so comfortable. It's very 1950's but I modernized it with salty, beachy hair and a fascia lip. This was my first RTR but it definitely won't be my last!!

Rented for a bridal shower. I was the Maid of Honor and wanted to look elegant. It was perfect. A little tight in the chest but not uncomfortable at all! Definitely recommend!

Nice dress, just not for me
This was my initial pick for a wedding, but I ended up liking my second style much more. I'm still reviewing it though because it was a nice dress. Unfortunately, even the 14W (I also rented the 16W) seemed too large and it just wasn't doing anything for my body. The length hit me at mid calf and made me look even shorter than I am. Also, the waist didn't nip in quite as much as I had wanted (possibly because of the size). The dress itself was very pretty though and the lace was beautiful. I had picked the dress because of the back detail and color. It just didn't make me feel as pretty as my second style.

Love this dress. Gorgeous color! Fits well.
This dress is a gorgeous teal! Sleeves are not too tight but not too big either. Very comfortable dress. This dress needs a strapless bra. I'm 5'8 and it hit just above my knees.

A lovely graduation ceremony.
LIghtweight. Beautiful fit. A well-made lining underneath the delicate lace made the dress feel light yet solid. Wore a black lace coat for the chilly evening. It has a ribbon-type belt at the natural waist, which is hard to pull off when you are longwaisted like myself, but even then it was pretty flattering.

I felt so pretty and confident!
Absolutely fell in love with this dress. I only wish I could have kept it. It made me feel beautiful and was so sad to send it back. The sleeves were a little loose, but I'd rather them be a little baggy than too tight. I ordered a 14 and 16, they were both were very similar but wore the 16 to be more comfortable. Customer service was awesome and shipping was on time and easy to send back. I wish I had more events to get dresses for so I could use Rent The Runway again!
