Flattering, sexy and comfortable.
In love with this dress! The fit was flattering. The color was stunning. I wore a regular nude bra and it wasn't to obvious. Great length for a tall girl. Forgiving fabric with a touch of stretch. The high collar and puff at sleeve cap were a great modern touch.

Unique dress with a great fit
I wore this is Vegas, and it was a show stopper (in my opinion). There is just enough skin that peeps thru to make sexy, yet still has great coverage the color was beautiful. I have bigger arms and had no issues with this dress.

Did nothing for my shape.
I never wore this dress, as it did nothing for my figure. It jus kinda "hung" on me. I am tall, lean, with A cups. Also, the problem could be that I ordered a large. (I am normally an 8 or 10) I definitely should have gotten the medium.

Fun & Unique
This dress is really unique. I rented it for Vegas, because it's totally different from anything I own. I really enjoyed wearing it, and felt very fashion forward. It's also very comfortable.

Love this dress!
This dress is classy and sexy at the same time. I feel like it ran true to size for a small but really wished that an xs option would have been offered. I felt that the dress fit ok but a smaller size would have been perfect.

Hey! I'm 5'1"....how did you feel about the length? Also, did you need to wear a bra or anything? Or was it snug enough? Lmk! Thanks girl!

Gorgeous dress! Received compliments all night, and felt comfortable, sexy and original. The color is more stunning in person. Paired the dress with a strappy, nude heel.

Show stopper of a dress
I rented this for my bachelorette weekend and it was so perfect. By the look of the lace you would think it wouldn't be that comfortable but it was amazingly comfy. I would rent this again and again!

An unforgettable dress. I felt amazing!
I thought it would be a lot more see through than it is - which made it flattering and appropriate. It also was structured in a way that I found it very slimming. I highly highly recommend.

Beautiful dress, vibrant color
This dress is gorgeous in person and I received lots of compliments. That said, it's not great for dancing - the under slip rode and the dress itself seemed to get easily twisted around. Perfect for an occasion where you're not moving around a lot.

Beautiful, for a special occasion
This dress was beautiful and as pictured.. I rented it for every day wear, hoping I could dress it down with sandals, but it is quite nice looking in person, and it felt to fancy to wear as a summer dress! Will rent again sometime in the future for a special occasion!

Fabulous dress, great fit, lovely color.
I received so many compliments about the dress, it was a hit! I felt very comfortable wearing it, and the color accentuated my features. The material is of a delicate nature so you must be very careful not to damage it.

Sexy but yet classy lace
Loved loved the dress. Very pretty color of blue. Wore it to an event on Wednesday night and got lots of compliments. I usually wear a size 8, but since I have hips the 10 was perfect. As for me the length was just below the knee for me. The lace just make this dress so sexy but yet very tasteful. Would rent again.

Beautiful and Interesting Dress
This dress doesn't photograph nearly as beautiful as it looks in person. The see-through parts don't reveal too much skin, but instead just make the details really stand out. I didn't find the neck or any one part of the dress to be too tight, but I'm not too busty or packin much booty. Very figure flattering for the straight and narrow.

Obsessed with this dress! The color - WOW!
This dress is GORGEOUS! Amazing quality! Sheer in all of the right places. I ordered the large bc the medium was not available. If I were to buy this dress, I would buy the medium. But overall, I was very happy with the dress, how it photographed and RTR customer service/prompt delivery. The color is AMAZING!

This dress was by far my favorite yet. I usually wear a size 4/6 and the small fit perfectly! The dress was surprisingly comfortable as well which is always a bonus! LOVED this one.

Absolutely stunning!
I've never received so many compliments from friends and strangers alike! The lace has a bit of give to it, so don't worry about feeling too constrained. I did not wear a bra because the back is totally sheer. However, I was disappointed there was no liner in either the top or skirt portion; the solid material there is relatively thin. I was a bit worried about pictures, but everything seemed to take well even with flash. Also, I have thicker upper arms and had no problems at all... plenty of space to move around and still extra room in the sleeves. I've had 3 friends already tell me they rented this dress for weddings they have this fall after seeing me in it! I know Alexis makes this dress in other colors like black and burgundy... I'm hoping RTR has those available for rent soon, too!

Beautiful Dress! Tons of Compliments!
This was a great dress! The color is very vibrant in person. I wore it to a wedding, and received a ton of compliments. I believe it runs true to size, although I wasn't a huge fan of the S, M, L sizing. I am a 10-12 normally and I feel the L was a bit snug. The lining at the chest and lower half is sewed into the inside of the dress. I did feel the bottom part creeping up while on the dance floor! So I did have to adjust that every now and then. Overall, a great dress. The picture is of me, my sister and my mom...and all the dresses are Rent the Runway!

Rented this for my sisters rehearsal dinner and could not have been happier! The dress was comfortable and I received many compliments. Hard to tell but the cut out parts have black threading which made pairing with black shoes very easy!

I received so many compliments on this dress! I never wear blue, but I might just have to now.
The fit was absolutely perfect - it was tight without being restrictive and made my figure look amazing. As I am a little on the taller side the dress hit just above the knee. I received compliments left and right when I wore this dress to work. It is gorgeous in person and looks even more amazing on! I'd highly recommend it for any occasion.

Gorgeous fabric! Pretty color!
I didn't end up wearing because I didn't feel as comfortable as I wanted to in it. It's very long which makes it hard to dance in. If I needed it for a different event (shower/dinner party) would definitely have worn.

Unforgettable experience!!!! Worn to a night on the town in Toronto!!! Beautiful!!!!
This dress fit like a glove. I am 5"8, 170, 34DDD. The medium fit, but the large did as well and gave me more hip room. I wore with blush heels although a blue snakeskin print looked dynamite as well!!!! I was a stand out as no one had seen a dress so beautiful!!! You will be the belle of the ball. Definitely recommend. Cannot wait to try the white one!!!!! I want to own this so badddddd!....My boyfriend was so impressed.

I got so many compliments on this dress during the wedding and after I had posted pictures in it
I am 6'0" and athletic build so the Medium was pretty form fitting and I probably could have worn a large. But the dress was still comfortable and I was able to dance the night away without feeling constricted. I wore black strapy heels to complete the look with very little jewelry (seriously the dress speaks for itself!) I would definitely recommend the dress and to get the next size up as a back up.

I loved this dress! Very unique. I wore the small, it was a little tight but not uncomfortable because the fabric had some stretch. Highly recommend!

Amazing!!!
Okay so I admittedly have more back fat than what a dress like this would usually allow for. I don't wear backless or transparent designs as a result. Despite this, I decided to take a gamble on this dress and I could just SCREAM from the rooftops with joy because of it!! The dress fit SO nicely and snugly enough that it smoothed out my back and it looked awesome! this dress is sexy and conservative! I wore spanx underneath it, however, and I short of regret it. It left a line by my belly but that's obviously not a design flaw. I would just wear different undergarments for next time. I will rent the red colored version of this dress someday! :)

I wore size Medium to a Bat Mitzvah
The small did not zip as I'm very big on top. The medium size fit great holding me up without needing a bra (I was really in between and a small and medium). I received lots of compliments and the dress was comfortable and stood out. My girlfriend ended up wearing the small to another event and it looked amazing on her.

Striking
Highly recommend this dress - I received so many compliments! I ended up wearing the small but the medium could have worked too. (If my hips and arms weren't as slim, I would have been more comfortable in the medium for sure.) I purchased a royal blue bra to wear with this and it truly looked like it was part of the dress! I did notice that the shorter, opaque skirt rode up under the lace outer layer quite a bit while walking, so consider yourself warned!

"You look annoyingly hot right now"
Even the bride couldn't stop talking about this dress! It was conservative while also being extremely sexy. The lace made the dress everything that it is, and the color was really eye-catching too. I was scared I was going to have trouble dancing in it, but it moved just fine for me!

No time to question yourself, just rent!
Went back and forth for an entire week debating whether or not to rent this baby... when I finally went to rent, it was GONE and I was heartbroken (no really). Miraculously I had checked back and it was available a few days later so I was quick to book my rental! Have never gotten so many complements from any other RTR dress I've rented.. super form fitting and not the easiest to dance in, but I felt great and loved that it's different than anything I've ever worn! Size was true, didn't have a problem with the back being exposed through lace as I'm very small chested, no bra necessary... love love love!!!

Perfect for my best friend's baby shower!
I loved, loved, loved this dress! The color is beyond gorgeous. This dress is comfortable and mingling was a breeze (I could even eat and drink ;) I got a ton of compliments and will definitely be renting this again. One note: the dress does stretch after time and becomes less form fitting - I had a long car ride to my event and stopped and changed in a gas station right before I got there to maximize the shape.

If you want to stand out and receive endless compliments the entire night... Rent this dress. Im 5'3 and this dress hit about an inch and a half below my knee. I'm literally obsessed with it and I can't wait to rent more from this designer!

Even more beautiful in person !!
I was hesitant to rent this dress mainly because of my boobs. I'm a 34 DD and usually have an issue with dresses fitting right in that area. This dress worked! I was able to wear a strapless nude bra and it barely showed on the back side. The extensive lace hid it well. It runs true to size, and doesn't ride up at all! I received many compliments. Definitely a winner!
