Felt really beautiful and confident with this dress
My first time to rent and I absolutely love it! I used it for my son's baptismal, not really typical for that event but since it is hot these days I decided to wear something light. You have to wear an inner tube dress on this one because it is almost like see through. True to size but I agree with others that the upper off shoulder part is a little looser than expected. From the moment I stepped out of the car my mom and aunties were really cheering on me on how I look great and lost a lot of baby weight. Really happy I picked this one. Overall a wonderful experience.

Great for bachelorette party!
Wore this the first night during my bachelorette party weekend. Super fun dress, glad I ordered the 4. Normally wear a 2, but the waist area around the ribs was tight but fit well in the 4. Very flattering dress!!

I rented this for my bridal shower and was unable to wear it because it was so see through. Cute dress but I was shocked.

Not a winner
Too big, kind of a "dirty" white, and would NOT recommend this to anyone.

Didn't wear
I liked the style of the dress but personally on me it didn't flatter my figure. It definitely was not lower stomach friendly and instead of being uncomfortable all day I didn't wear. It's a pretty dress just not for me

My friend had to be on dress watch...
Pretty dress, easy fit. The size 4 definitely fit me pretty snugly, so I would suggest knowing that there is no wiggle room in this dress. I had an issue with the lining of the dress. It would bunch weird and you could see the folds and bunching through the dress. My girlfriend noticed it when she told me I like your dress, but what is happening here in the back....referring to the weird folds. We would try to flatten and pull the lining flat, but it was not an easy fix. She had to be on dress duty that night, trying to

Yikes! Not flattering. At ALL!
The dress is actually tiered all the way through. Which you can't tell from the pictures. I think it would be okay if you are straight up and down, but if you have hips go another route! I almost cried when I tried it on it was so unflattering. My friend had to talk me down and tell me that I did not in fact just gain 30 pounds, but that it was the dress.

Frilly and Fun
I rented this for le Diner en Blanc (an elegant, all white dinner party that is half flash mob half French picnic) First of all, the dress is off white, but that ended up ok at the event. I liked this dress a lot and felt it had a great Parisian feel with the lace, off-the-shoulder sleeves. I felt feminine and pretty all night. For DEB, there is a lot of carrying items to a secret location. I appreciated that this dress was light and not stiff since it was a very hot evening, but the fabric doesn't stretch and there is no slit so it was difficult to take a larger step. I used my PRO birthday gift to rent this dress and a hair clip for free. All in all, this was the perfect summer party dress.

Lots of compliments!
I rented a few dresses for my weekend away, and I was surprised that this was the one I got the most compliments on. I had to take away a star only because it was uncomfortable. The bottom is very tight and the top is very loose - I think that the elastic meant to hold it below the shoulders is too stretched out. I used fashion tape to keep it up, so it ended up working!

I rented this for Diner En Blanc - ended up being a perfect fit!
I was worried about the size since so many people said it ran small and there was only 1 size available. I think if you are curvy (hips/thighs) it runs small, but if you are fairly straight it runs true to size. I received many compliments and was the perfect dress for the event I attended. I was a little disappointed because the dress seemed to a little dingy from wear and tear, but it ended up not being a big deal and had a great night!

Thousands of people at the concert and this dress was completely unique.
I wore this dress to a summer, country music concert. It was comfortable and cute. I kept it casual and added teal, strappy sandals and a dark denim jacket when it cooled off in the evening.

Received tons of compliments from guys and girls. Total showstopper and adorable! Be warned though, the fabric does not stretch, so it's a little tight around the hips and stomach. Love this dress!

Beautiful, sassy and sexy
I wore this dress for my rehearsal dinner and it was wonderful...sooooo comfortable and sexy. I just love the off the shoulder look. I wanted to keep this and take it on my honeymoon! :) my husband loved this dress and it was just perfect for the occasion. It's a little see through so wear neutral color underwear-but that goes without saying with a white dress. I would have liked it a little tighter but it fit great-it was just tight enough for the occasion. LOVED IT. i noticed RTR has it in black too-may rent the black one for something in the future!

Comfortable, flattering white dress
This was really comfortable and perfect for the summertime. The fabric is not stretchy, and the lining is polyester, so there is little breathing room. Just something to think about if you're wearing in hot weather! Other than that I loved it - great for bustier girls because the cotton eyelet trim is long and falls lower than the bust line, hence you don't need to wear a bra.

Fun Dress
I rented this dress for my graduation from grad school. The dress was snug through the hips but it was big through the top. I wore the dress off the shoulders but it could easily be worn on the shoulders. I recevied many compliments in this dress. I would recommend sizing up if you're pear shaped or have larger hips.

Not crazy about the sleeves, but if you fold them up, the look completely changes!
Rented this for our engagement photos. I wasn't crazy about this dress when I tried it on... My fiance said it looked like Frida Kahlo (not what I was going for!) However, I was able to roll the sleeves up under the off the shoulder section, and it was great! The body of the dress fits perfectly. Loved it.

AMAZING! Very Romantic!
Rented it for our engagement photoshoot. Dress was amazing, very feminine & had romantic details. However, both sizes, 2 & 4 were a bit too tight in the hips area. (i have wide hips) & i didnt want to be uncomfortable during our shoot. sadly i decided not to wear the dress. other than that , the dress was fabulous! RTR was amazing & gave me credit instead.

Didn't work out.
The size four fit well, but had a tear along the on of the side seams. It wasn't as cute as I imagined it would be either. RTR offered to overnight me a replacement, which was great, but I opted to take the credit to my account. Customer service was great! Dress was just okay.

I hate sending this dress back! I would buy it if I could. It was a little loose around the ribcage but the neckline is so beautiful no one would ever notice.

My favorite yet!
I rented this for Diner en Blanc in L.A. I assumed the dress was actually white (it is called "White Lace Whispers" after all), but it's actually off-white. It ultimately didn't matter, I still LOVE it and received lots of compliments, but just an FYI. I was a bit worried that it would be too snug, since most reviews here warn that the dress runs small. I usually wear a 4, and was surprised to find it a little looser than expected. Not so loose that it looked too large, but loose enough for me to feel comfy alllll night. This dress is lined, but still a bit sheer, so it definitely requires undergarments that are close to your skin tone. Although, you *might* be able to pull off wearing a colored bra thanks to the extra fabric around the neckline. This dress is so flattering! I think that it work look gorgeous on most body types. Now I want to purchase it!

My boyfriend asked if I could buy the dress, I had so many compliments from both men/women
The dress was not stretchy and the fit was small, thank goodness I ordered the 4 and the 6. But it was very flattering and I loved it.

White party perfection!
I wore this dress to a white party fundraiser. It was super fun to wear and I got compliments all night! The bottom of the dress is a little difficult to walk in, because the lace band at the bottom has no give. Other than that it was very comfortable and easy to dance in! I actually wore it one-shoulder by tucking the opposite side's sleeve in and it looked GREAT, so keep that in mind if the off-the shoulder look is a bit too confining.

This dress made me feel beautiful after having a bad week. Leave it to RTR to make you feel fabulous
This dress is beautiful and the detailing is wonderful, but it does not stretch. If you have hips you might think of sizing up for your back up. I wore this out to a nice dinner during my sorority Mom's weekend and I got a ton of compliments on it. The dress was actually a bit big on me, but I had lost weight between the time I ordered this and when I wore it, so I suspect it would have fit better in a size down. Regardless of the slightly large fit, I got many compliments throughout the evening.

Cute girly white dress
Fits true to size, the bottom has NO stretch at all so keep that in mind when ordering, the top part is very pretty. The dress is lined but i still chose to wear spanx underneath.

My favorite rental yet!
I wore this for my bridal shower. It was perfect! I loved how it fit me. You will need nude-colored body-shapers underneath because it's a little see through, but that fixes the problem. .It's form fitting through the bottom and stretchy at the top. It is definitely my favorite rental so far. Loved it!!!

Very cute- wore it to the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville.
I wore it with the shoulders not showing and felt that it was more flattering on me that way (broad shoulders). The dress is tighter in the thighs, I could have wore the 4 if that area wasn't so tight. Overall, cute dress- husband loved it ;)

While the dress is lovely, it wasn't what I was looking for for this event. I would probably wear it but for something less formal. It's comfy, light and cute- just not really formal wear. :)

The dress was perfect for my country chic style rehearsal dinner. I got tons of compliments!
4 was snug - and that's my normal size! There isn't much give to the dress so I wore the 6. I felt fantastic in and it was appropriate for the setting. It's definitely festive :) I recommend!

perfect for your rehearsal dinner
LOVED this dress. The fit was extremely flattering and the dress was absolutely perfect for my rehearsal "dinner" (actually rooftop drinks/apps). It can be dressed it up or down and looks great with your hair up as it can be worn off the shoulders. The only issue I had with it is that the lining is somewhat noticeable and needed to be pulled down/aligned with the dress every so often; this wasn't obvious in the evening lighting though.

I enjoyed my experience with rent the runway, I wish there had been an opportunity on the day I signed up to speak with a stylist that could have helped me choose a better fitting dress but overall it was a nice experience. A stylist did contact me but it was a few days after I signed up.
This dress is really pretty. Its a great option if your subconscious about your arms or have large ta ta's the top fits great! My only complaint was that the lining was too thin and you could see thru the dress to your undergarments on the skirt portion. I wore a corset so it was a good fit but again you could see the line of my panties and the corset which I was not a fan of however without the corset you could see more of my skin and underwear. I did love the style its very flattering and it fit about two inches above the knee which was perfect not too short and not too long. Overall I enjoyed wearing this dress, I would suggest anyone that is getting the back up size to get a size larger as a back up.

Very Cute Dress
I rented this dress for my daughter to wear to a wedding. The dress was very cute but my daughter decided to do a little adjusting and made the dress a one shoulder. It was EXTRA cute. The dress fit her perfectly and she got tons of compliments.
