Perfect Fall Dress!

Wore this dress to a fall wedding in MN. I was really in between sizes, ended up wearing the small to the ceremony and the medium to the reception so that I could move a little better. Lots of compliments!

Stylish and comfy

The dress was better than I thought it would turn out. The medium was too big in the arms and made it look frumpy. The small fit much better. My friends loved the dress. It was different and fun to wear for a friends wedding!

Unique dress!

I really liked this dress & got compliments but the XL sleeves were a bit long on me. I folded them up once at the wrist & no one noticed so it wasn't a big deal. The other con is that the material is a lot heavier than I thought it would be. Luckily it was freezing at the wedding! The fit was very nice & definitely a unique & beautiful dress. I felt very comfortable in it.

Beautiful Details!

The only bad part was that I couldn't zip it by myself. This was a chilly, September weddings so paired it with tights and booties. Love the detail on top and the flow of the bottom. No complaints here!

The beauty is in the detail!

This dress was stunning! The contrast of lace, sheerness and the roughed skirt was perfect. The only issue with the dress was the sleeves. The size small was too tight but the sleeves fit perfect. I wore the medium and you couldn't tell the sleeves were a little large. I got many compliments and the dress is perfect for a fall/winter wedding or a holiday party!

Really stood out!

Loved this dress! I got compliments all night. Happy to have sleeves for warmth. The zipper was nearly impossible to get up over the waist due to the thickness of the fabric & tiny zipper pull. My husband had to use a rubber jar opener for grip...if you live alone beware!

This was a very comfortable well constructed dress. The length was perfect. The sleeves were a bit big but it was not noticeable. I enjoyed wearing the dress to my Husband's work Christmas party. I received several compliments.

First Trimester Bump Wear

I wore this dress for my birthday dinner. I was 13 weeks pregnant at the time and it was very comfortable. The higher waist and flowy bottom were perfect to disguise my bump. I did think that the detailing on the top looked silver in pictures. I was surprised to see it was white when it arrived.

Pretty and classy

Pretty and classy dress. I wore it to a wedding, didn't know the family very well, and thought about wearing a non-reveling dress. The zipper is kinda tricky - ended up wearing the medium because it was hard to zip it up myself.

Perfect for a holiday party

Fits true to size. Perfect for holiday work party. Conservative and covered top but fun and received many compliments. Sleeves are a tiny bit uncomfortable at first with the pattern material but you forget about that after a while. Very fun to dance in!

Christmas Eve Service

The dress was uncomfortable with the sleeves and turtle neck- mostly because I never wear this type of thing. It was a beautiful dress and was flattering. Not breastfeeding friendly.

So. Many. Compliments.

I wore this to my friend's rehearsal dinner and it did not disappoint!! I received so many compliments from everyone, men and women, all night. I ordered the L and XL and had to go with the XL because the L was way too tight on my chest. I think going up that extra size also left a little extra room in the neck which clasps in the back, because I never felt like I was suffocating. I was able to wear just a regular black bra, since the top is so detailed you can't see the straps through it. I'm on the shorter side and this hit me right at the knee/maybe a smidge above. I paired it with OTK black boots and some gold drop earrings and was good to go!! Would recommend this pretty little dress to everyone!

Dress couldnt be worn but the rental return was easy.

Runs small and ill fitting. If i had sized up the sleeves and overall look would have been way too big. I couldn't wear this dress and had to send back. I'm a true medium but the lace band had zero stretch and was cutting the circulation off in my stomach.

Cute for an evening wedding

I needed a long-sleeved dress for a January wedding and loved the style. I am pear-shaped but quite petite up top. Loved the fit on the bottom, but the sleeves were too wide and too long. The chest was too wide as well and I had extra fabric on my sides. At any rate, it looked cute with black tights and booties, and it was warm despite the lace top. You can't wear a bra, be warned.

Perfect for a Work Party

The dress fit great! The sleeves and top were lace and it was high cut which made it perfect for a work holiday party. The neck lace detail was a little itchy but wasn't too bad. The length of the skirt was great and comfortable and I loved the material. It made me want to dance all night! I loved this look during the winter time.

Cute dress

I liked this dress more than i thought i would. It was a great length and very cute. Unfortunately, my husband was not able to get the zipper up. Most zippers are hard to get past waistband but this was impossible for him. So i had to wear another dress.

Lovely forgiving dress

This dress was very cute. I wore it to a work dinner/awards ceremony. I wish I had the large because the XL was a little loose but it wasn't too big. The cut of the skirt is very forgiving to those of us with a little mom belly. :) Side note: Funniest part of the night, a coworker from another part of the country rented the exact same dress. We ran into each other at the cocktail hour and had a good laugh. Wish we got a picture together.

Comfortable and fun but the zipper is a disaster!

I loved the dress, it was comfortable and fun, perfect for dinner out for my birthday. However, it took my husband AND my mom 10 min to zip me in and out. It also smelled a bit like a garage sale which I've never had happen before.

Looked great

Rented this for a February wedding and it was perfect. I am 5'4" 165 pear shaped and ended up going with the large and had plenty of room. My only complaint is that the zipper is very difficult to zip up because of the fabric. Dont think it could be zipped up alone!

Super cute but a little itchy :(

The dress runs a little small. Im usually a size 4 (5'5" and 132 lbs) and I couldnt zip the small. So I wore the medium which fit my body great but I thought the sleeves were a bit loose. At any rate, I got a lot of compliments but the cut out/lace part was a bit itchy and I had to keep that underwraps.

Beautiful detail!

I rented this for my husband's awards ceremony at work. It was perfect: comfortable, classy, and stylish. The zipper was difficult to zip, and the lace flowers are heavier than expected, but overall, this dress was amazing!

Great dress!!

I rented this dress for my husbands work party. I needed something slighty conservative but still wanted to feel sexy, and it was perfect! It was very comfortable and flattering; I got so many compliments all evening long! My only issue was the zipper, it was EXTREMELY difficult to get zipped.

Not great for petite frames

I rented this for my mom's 70th birthday dinner and it just didnt work out. It was almost gorgeous but just didnt work. I am 5'2" and 135 - 140 lbs. i am muscular with broad shoulder and back (particularly in the ribs). I could not zip the small at all and the medium was still uncomfortably tight. Additionally, the size difference from the small to medium in the arms and shoulders - even with a muscular frame - was just overwhelming on a petite body. If you have a tiny waist, you can def get away with this and it may look gorgeous, but if you are like me and thick in the torso, then it may be too tight and the bigger sizes may then be too big on the rest of your body.

fun & comfortable!

Pros - loved the long sleeve - great length for me - felt comfortable all nite - looked as expected Cons - runs small: Medium was too snug in chest and shoulders but Large was too big - there is no stretch in this dress: size up if in doubt - zipper was REALLY hard to get over seams, have help zipping this up

Conservative Christmas Party

This dress was the perfect amount of glitz for a work Christmas party - not too flashy but still special. The M felt better around my waist but the sleeves were really big so I went with the S for a better overall look but could have worn either.

Stand out dress!

This dress would've had 5 stars except there were 2 minor cons. I read other reviews that the zipper would get stuck and that was true. It was a hard zipper to pull up on your own. The other con was that despite fitting everywhere else, the sleeves were not fitted to your skin so it looks a little loose around my arms and slightly long past my wrists. I made do though and got so many compliments because of the uniqueness of the top. The rest of the dress was also very comfortable and despite still have post baby pudge it minimized the bulge and I felt comfortable all night.

So many compliments!!

I ordered this for a fundraising gala for work - it was perfect! I looked classy, yet fashionable. I received so many compliments from all ages. I ordered the small (my normal size) and it fit perfect. The dinner was 10 courses and the dress was so forgiving at the end of the night (which is when this photo was taken!). This is my third time using Rent the Runway and have had a great experience every single time!!

Really unique, pretty dress! I am 5'10, athletic and usually wear a Medium or a Large. I wore a large in this but wish I ordered a medium. Lots of extra fabric on the bottom.

Cute and flattering

I had this dress overnighted when another RTR dress didn't work out. I was grateful it fit well and arrived on time for the event. I did receive several compliments, however, it wasn't as flattering as I wanted it to be. Could be too self-critical, though. ;) Bottom line is it was very comfortable and cute to wear, just wasn't my first choice of style to wear.
